  • he’s like the sweet gentle type that you date for a long time, take home to your parents, plan your future out with ya feel
  • unlike the rest of my boyfriend scenarios, i really like the idea of mark being like normal mark
  • not famous, going to school mark
  • now you meet mark bc you two happen to take a really obscure class together
  • like,,, there’s maybe ten people in the entire class (you’re kind of lost as to why it even exists tbh)
  • but hey, it’s the only alternative for another class you didn’t make the roster for, so you’ll take what you can get
  • on your first day there, there’s only like three people in the entire lecture hall so you’re confused af
  • you end up walking up to the first person you see and you’re like “yo, i’m here for my class but i think i have the wrong place”
  • the person’s head is hung down as they write out something in their notebook
  • but then they look up
  • you’re momentarily shocked by how pretty this person is bc like… damn
  • he smiles like “oh hey, yeah this is the place. don’t worry, it’s this small all the time. i’m mark” 
  • and he holds his hand out for you to shake and as soon as you touch palms you have to hide your shocked expression bc!! boy has some soft ass hands!!!
  • besides the callouses on his fingers his touch is as gentle as his smile
  • you tell him your name through a strangled breath and he repeats it to himself before smiling at you again and you’re still trying to figure out how someone could be this nice and beautiful
  • “do you want to sit next to me? i can help you catch up on anything you need help with” he offers, but he’s already pulling out the seat next to him and how could u refuse hah..haha
  • you plop in that seat so fast
  • you two end up going over his notes for all of three minutes before he starts inquiring about you and your major and your plans for the future
  • in fact you two are so lost in what you’re talking abt that you only realize the professor is there when she drops a book on yours and mark’s desk with a raised eyebrow like “yall done”
  • you and mark are blushing so hard lmao
  • throughout the whole class tho, you can’t really focus on anything besides mark beside you
  • you notice every time he moves, or every puff of breath that leaves him when he’s focused on writing down the professor’s words as she barrels through her lecture at lightning speed
  • when the class is over, you’re all over the place bc you only managed to capture half of what she said and you couldn’t put any of the information you had into something comprehensible
  • you stand next to your desk with a pout on your lips, not noticing until his breath is on your shoulder that mark is peeking at your notes
  • “that doesn’t look very… that isn’t exactly… do you need some help?” mark is so disheartened looking at your notes that he literally can’t help offering his own to you
  • but you’re so thankful and you’re like “thank you thank you!!! how can I repay you?”
  • and mark is pretty adamant that you don’t need to pay him back, that he’s just being a helpful classmate, but then as you’re taking pictures of his notes he just,,, “do you wanna go on a date? i-i mean a study date. you know. to study. the material. for school”
  • of course you can’t say no to the cute blush on his cheeks and the stutter in his words and omg is he biting his lip what the fu
  • “totally!! i’ll give you my number and you can text me whenever you’re free” 
  • you two exchange numbers and you’re on your way
  • this turns out to be a mistake bc it’s only twenty minutes later when you’re headed to your next class and all you can think about is him
  • your hands keep fiddling with your phone and even your friend in that class is like “are u good”
  • you wanna text him so bad tbh but like you dont want to be weird or anything
  • and then like as soon as you get out of class to go get lunch your phone buzzes and you nearly get whiplash from how fast you look at your phone
  • mark: are you busy later? its never too late to start studying
  • i mean… you just got out of that class like two hours ago but oF COURSE MARK YOU’D LOVE TO
  • you’re not even surprised when the entire study date turns into you two just getting to know each other
  • he tells you about how he loves music, how his roommate jackson is always trying to get him out of his shell and it kind of hits you that mark isn’t the type to do things like this
  • the fact that he’s stepped out of his comfort zone to hang with you is so endearing that you kind of just sit your chin in your palm and watch him lovingly as he talks about his interests and you’re pretty sure “i’m so attracted to you??” is written across your forehead but you don’t even care
  • at the end of the date, he walks you back to your dorm, and before you can disappear into your room, he grabs at your hand gently
  • his hold is unsure, but he looks determined, even if he’s incapable of making eye contact
  • “was it just me or was today more of a date than it was studying?”
  • you just nod, your smile widening as he rubs the back of his neck when his palm grows sweaty in yours
  • “would you… maybe like to do that again? the date part of course. i mean we can study too if you’d like, honestly as long as we’re hanging out-” “I’d love to mark”
  • it’s official, you’re dating!!
  • you’re surprised how quickly you fall for mark too
  • weeks pass and you two basically spend every waking minute together
  • if you aren’t physically beside each other, you’re texting, or calling, or thinking about the other
  • while you two haven’t had the talk abt official titles, you secretly look at each other like that
  • it’s only evident one day when you’re talking to jackson, in his and mark’s dorm room while mark gets dressed for your date
  • jackson is telling you how he’s known mark for a while now and he’s never seen him act the way he does when he’s with you
  • “i think he’s really serious about you… but are you serious about him?” jackson asks, and you can’t hate him for asking bc you know how protective he is of his best friend
  • but his question is so out of the blue that you take a minute to think about it, your mind kinda lost on you as you try to think up a satisfactory answer
  • and then it all becomes clear to you, like a cloud parted over your feelings
  • “i’m really serious about him. it’s early but… i think i really want to be with him for a long time. he makes me feel so warm and happy and he’s not like any guy i’ve ever known. i feel like mark… is the one”
  • and then a smile cracks across jackson’s face before he turns his head to something behind you, and you turn your attention over your shoulder to see mark smiling with literal stars in his eyes 
  • “you were right mark. she passed my test”
  • when you realize what’s going on your cheeks immediately start burning, and you deliver a few blows to mark’s shoulder but even through the pain and complaining he can’t stop how happy he is
  • he keeps the cheesy smile the whole night oml you have to kiss him just to get him to stop
  • besides mark being the cutest boy ever he’s also a little (big) shit
  • always playing some kind of a prank on you
  • one time he convinces you he’s turned your favorite white sweater green with a picture of said sweater looking bright lime 
  • and you’re so mad but he just smiles at you and flutters his eyelashes like “im sorry, you still love me right??” 
  • and of course you’re still mad but you reassure him with a forehead kiss and then he laughs and goes “i didn’t ruin your sweater, youngjae helped me photoshop it so it looked like i did”
  • he gets so many bruises that day
  • but his friends make up for it by teasing the shit out of mark
  • his friend jinyoung has a plethora of embarrassing stories about mark that you could just sit there for hours listening to how mark broke his finger playing bop it
  • mark’s youngest friends, dance majors yugyeom and bambam and computer science major youngjae see mark as the older bro of their friend group as mark is the oldest, so they kinda see you as their older sister
  • therefore, you are not unaccustomed to unannounced visits from the three at all hours of the day
  • yugyeom is always asking you to criticize his dances, bambam always asks you to help him study, and youngjae honestly just comes over to sleep bc his roommate is super loud and he never gets a moment of peace
  • in return, you use them for everything
  • all you have to do is say “do this” and they’ll do it bc they love u so much and they have to pay you back somehow for how much they bother you
  • even when mark is over and you two are trying to have some time alone they’ll still stop by and won’t leave despite all the urging to
  • the amount of times you have to call either jaebum or jinyoung to save you has gotten out of hand
  • but even then you don’t mind bc honestly they’re like family to you now, and you love them too much to ever hate being around them
  • in turn, mark is really aware of how special you are to him and he makes sure he lets you know
  • if you’re sick, mark is skipping all his classes to take care of you
  • even if you protest he cannot be persuaded
  • if he really can’t miss a class or has an exam tho, he’ll send one of the boys to take care of you and of course they do so at the drop of a hat
  • makes sure you’re caught up in schoolwork, and always offers to help you study for big tests bc he knows you have a hard time doing so by yourself
  • if you’re too lazy to go grocery shopping he has no prob going out and doing it for you
  • he’s just such a doting bf like he doesn’t mind doing whatever you need done
  • even tho he doesn’t always say “i love you” with words, you can tell just by how he treats you
  • he says i love you when he asks if you’ve gotten enough sleep in the middle of class, and when you shake your head no, he lets you nap and promises to explain the lesson to you later
  • he says i love you when he makes you dinner bc he knows you’re too busy with homework to make it for yourself
  • he says i love you in all of his own little ways
  • but when he does remember to say it, it’s always said with such warmth and fondness that you have to take a second to collect yourself from the utter cuteness before you say it back
  • overall, mark is a loving, caring bf and he’s the best never let him go

other boyfriend!got7:



y’know what i really live for? yoongi breaking people’s expectations

like i somewhat have this coffee shop au in my head, no specific pairing really, but like yoongi frequents this coffee shop all the time

he always has his laptop  open and he sits in what the employees all dub, “his” corner, with his laptop and his notebook out and huge ass headphones on and he’s there every morning on weekdays for a few hours before he leaves

and poor guy has the most intimidating resting face and he always looks so tired and dead that everyone just automatically dubs him as the typical morning grump that always orders black coffee, no milk or sugar, and hates people

the employees and the regulars all know of yoongi and everyone gives him a wide berth usually

but then one early morning, these 2 boys come in

they’re younger guys, relatively same height, one with a wide boxy smile and the other with cute bunny teeth

they both order drinks and they look around and they spot yoongi. they get huge smiles on their faces and they start. heading. to the corner™.

and the whole coffee shop just inhales as one and holds their breath because omfg there’s gonna be a murder

the guys sneak up on yoongi and then the boxy smile guy just thumps his hands on yoongi’s shoulder and yoongi jumps so hard and he turns around and

he smiles

the cutest, most endearing gummy smile with crescent eyes and squishy cheeks and everyone is flabbergasted and a little bit in love

and after that day, he sometimes comes in with a few other boys, always the same 6 though, and he smiles and laughs and jokes around all the time

and it’s beautiful :’)

Tears - Remus Lupin imagine

Request: Nope, my own idea.

Warnings: A bit emotional, and then not really a warning but it’s a little long.

Word count: 1672 words

Hope you enjoy it!

No one had seen Remus for the past week apart from James, Sirius, and Peter. He didn’t attend his classes which were very unlikely for him, which meant James and Sirius were starting to struggle because that didn’t have anyone to write their notes.

My biggest issue was Remus. Not that Remus was an issue because he wasn’t, Remus was anything but an issue. I was just worried about him. The boys didn’t seem that worried and just kept saying “he going to be fine, he probably just having a bad week, he just needs some space”

Maybe that was just what he needed but I was still worried. What if there was something more wrong? I mean … we are in the middle of a war. My mind just kept racing, with all these crazy thoughts that were keeping me up. For the past week, I had been like that and for every day it got worse.

A week and one day without seeing Remus had gone by and I was slowly going insane. Not being able to see Remus was hard and I couldn’t handle it. I had begged James and Sirius to let me in, but they wouldn’t. I needed to know what there was wrong.

“Please Sirius! I need to see him. Don’t you understand? I haven’t slept in the last week because I’m worried about him! And you guys won’t even tell me, so please let me see him! I need to! Pleas- “

“Y/N stop okay! I can’t let you in, I’m sorry”

“No, Sirius. You have to let me in, I need to see him, please!” At that point my eyes had filled up with tears, that fast were moving down my cheek and into my mouth. All I could taste was the salt from my tears and the blood from my chapped lips. My vision was blurry because of my tears and was having a hard time breathing.

“Y/N, breathe okay? Y/N you need to calm down, okay? I need you to breathe, just calm down okay?” Sirius was trying his best, he really was. It hurt him to see one of his best friends so heartbroken, when he could prevent it, just by unlocking the door and letting her see Remus. The only problem was, that Remus told him not to let her in.

“Y/N, I’m really sorry. I just can’t let you in okay? I want, I really do. I just can’t…”

“I want to, but you can’t? Is that what it is? Did he tell you not to let me in? Did he? Did he Sirius?” I could still taste the salt in my mouth but there were no new ones falling from my bloodshot eyes. It is crazy how fast your mood can change. Going from sad to mad.

“Answer me, Sirius! Did he? It is because he wants to break up with me? Please don’t tell me it is because he is going to break up with me! Please don’t tell me it is becau- “

“It not Y/N, I promise. I can’t stand seeing you like this okay, I want you to be the happy Y/N that always smiles, the Y/N that puts up with all my awful jokes and force me to do my homework so I don’t get bad grades. I want to see that Y/N, because I like her so much better than this version, even though she makes me do homework.  I want the happy Y/N back”

“I want happy me back too. But she won’t come until I get to see Remus. I need to see him, Sirius. I promise I will try my best to be happy Y/N again, but only if you let me see Remus.” I looked up at Sirius with new tears welling up in my eyes. I needed to see Remus, I needed to help him and get an answer. Why had he been ignoring me for the past week?

“Please Sirius, I need to see him” I looked up at Sirius one last time hoping that he finally would give in and let me see Remus.

“I promised him not to let you in, put I can’t stand seeing two of my best friends so miserable. You can’t function and neither can Remus, so go see him Y/N.” I could feel my lips turned upwards into the first smile in a week.

“Thank you, thank you, thank you so much. I don’t understand Sirius, thank you so much” I hugged Sirius tightly as the smile on my face grew bigger.

“I do think I understand Y/N, but please promise me one thing okay?” I looked at Sirius waiting for him to finish his sentence. “Just promise me, that you try to be the happy Y/N again no matter what he says to you, okay?”

I looked at Sirius, my smile fading a bit “I promise I will try to be happy again no matter what he says to me” I hugged Sirius tightly once again, took a deep breath and made my way up the stairs to their dorm.

The dorm Remus had been in for a week.

I looked down to Sirius who was giving me a reassuring nod, I again took a deep breath and carefully opened the door.

Their dorm was dark and messy, the curtains were blocking the sunlight from coming into the room and all their clothes were spread out on the floor. I quietly shut the door behind making the room go completely dark, I blinked slowly to adjust my eyes to the darkness not that id did any difference. I knew my way around, sometimes when I couldn’t sleep I would sneak into Remus’ bed and he would cuddle with me until I fell asleep. I slowly made my way over to Remus’ bed, taking a deep breath for every step I took.

When I came close enough I could see he was sleeping, his chest rising in a steady rhythm. Just by seeing him, my eyes started welling up again. I’d missed him so much.

I gently sat down at the edge of the bed, because I didn’t want to wake him up, but without my control, the tears started running down my face. I quickly held my hand in front of my mouth to stop the sobs from coming out and waking Remus, but of course, I woke him. He started to move around, his hand escaping mine.

“Y/N is that you?” I smiled, just hearing his voice was amazing. I know I had only been a week but he was my everything.

“Yes, Remus it’s me. I missed you so much, so, so, so much” I found his hand gently tucking it as he sat up.

“Why are you here Y/N? I asked James and Sirius to tell you, to keep out?” I was shocked, didn’t he want me here or what?

“So, you just want me to leave? Are you not happy to see me? Is it because you want to break up with me because if it is, you could just have told me?” I raised my voice a bit, simply because I was getting frustrated.

“No, no Y/N, it is nothing like that I promise. I- “I interrupted Remus “Then what it is? Because I can’t find any other reasons than that!”

“It just, I-I jus-“Remus had a hard time saying what he was supposed to say, sighing he placing his head in his hands.

“If you’re not going to break up with me or something like that, why is it so hard to say?” I asked him, taking his hand once again gently stroking my thumb against it.

Remus sighed once again before saying “It’s just because I don’t feel like I can’t protect you. We are at war, Voldemort is killing more, and more people and I just fear that one day when I’m not there to protect you, something bad happens to you and I will blame myself for the rest of my life. That I wasn’t good enough to protect the person that means the most to me and what if I, -I suddenly attack you on a full moon and you-“

“Remus stop! I’m not going to die and you are not going to hurt me. I know we are at war, but I can protect myself okay? But I still don’t understand why you have been up here for a week avoiding me”

“I, -I don’t know what came over me. I panicked over the thought you getting hurt or worse killed because of me, and then I thought you maybe would come to your senses and break up with me because you finally saw what kind of monster I am. I, -I just don’t know anymore, why would you want to be with me? I’m a monster Y/N! Don’t you understand?” I could see the tears welling up in Remus’ eyes, his free hand ruffling his hair like he always did when he was frustrated or sad.

“Remus, look at me. Look at me, please? Remus, please look at me” My voice was little and broken. How could such an amazing person think such thinks of himself.

“Remus, you are the most amazing person I know. You caring, loving, funny, adorable and I love you. I love for who you are, you may not be like everyone else but that’s why I choose you. You’re my Remus and will love you no matter how much of a monster, you try to tell me you think you are, but I know that you’re no monster. Your Remus, my Remus and I love you” My eyes filled with tears as I spoke, my left hand holding Remus’ and my right-hand caressing his cheek.

“I’m so sorry Y/N. I love you, I, -I just panicked-“

“It’s okay” I pulled Remus into a hug, the tears rolling down both of our faces but this time it was happy tears.

Any tips for a really nervous first year starting Fine Arts at uni? Idk what to expect or anything

Just be open to learning, and if you’re nervous that’s great - it means you aren’t one of those uni students who act like they’re an undiscovered star that is going to have #impact by just turning in an assessment.

I don’t know if this helps or not but when I was at uni I tried to have a clear idea of the themes I liked to explore on top of the creative briefs set by my lecturers - for me it was the environment and/or creating an experience for the user/viewer, it gave me direction even before receiving my briefs.

The class I took the most from was actually Art and Design History, I didn’t enjoy essay writing that much, however it improved my writing skills which I find really helpful today and also made me more of a critical thinker. It was also invigorating to learn about historical and modern art movements and discover new artists every week.

If what you’re worried about is not having a clear vision of who you are as an artist, not having a creative style, or not knowing the basics of studio classes - don’t worry about it, everyone is basically on level one even if they think they aren’t. University isn’t a competition, you’re there for personal growth and to hopefully make meaningful connections with likeminded people - the work you make at university will probably be a blip in the scheme of your career and the true magic is going to happen when you leave!

Enjoy your first year, you’ll kill it! X

AU's that I need in my life
  • Were on opposite sides of the debate team and I fucking hate you but I also kind of want to kiss your face you fucking prick.
  • We’ve been friends since the womb but now were both running for president and I’m totally gonna fucking win but no hard feelings….right?
  • I never even knew you existed until we faced off in a really intense game of class jeopardy and now I can’t get your dumb face out of my head.
  • We’re both top spies of rivaling organizations who have been sent to kill each other and you also my cute next door neighbor. 
  • I hate you and the feeling is mutual but we’re stuck in the elevator together so we might as well get comfortable. 
  • Were rivals that have been forced to work together on a fake baby project but there’s no time for petty fuckery because we have no fucking idea what were doing and hell no i’m not changing the diaper you do it.
  • we ate some weird ass cereal that turned out to be radioactive and now we both have super powers so lets go do some awesome superhero saving shit and try not to cause chaos. 
really important Jesse Eisenberg quotes

The more people say nice things about me, the more I feel it’s false.

I’ve never had tastes of people my own age. All of my friends when I was 15 were in their 40s. I’m not actually mature, just very self-conscious around people my own age because I feel like I’m supposed to act the same way they act and I don’t know how.

I can’t watch myself in interviews. I feel like I look like a wreck. My mom is always calling me and going, ‘Stop fidgeting,’ and it’s like, ‘You have no idea what it’s like, Mom.’

I am actually going to two therapists right now. I don’t know, I actually feel like therapy has just made me more uncomfortable.

I cried every day of first grade. In class. Which meant I ended up getting comfortable emoting in a place where it wasn’t the norm.

People think, 'You’re an actor, you can afford clothes,’ but I just try to take the clothes from the movie, which makes the selecting of film projects that much more difficult, because you try to play characters that might wear something you’d want to wear.

I tend to be pessimistic about everything: If things seem to be going good, I’m worried that it’s going to end; if things are bad, then I’m worried that it’s going to be permanent. It’s not a very comfortable attitude to have all the time.

If you’re acting, then there’s a prescribed way to behave; whereas in life, there’s no prescribed way. So acting feels like a comfortable way to get through the day.

The happiest moments for me, creatively, are doing readings of a play around a table where there’s no audience.

I meet people who are in movies, and the stuff that they write is terrible, but nobody tells them that because they’re famous. So I worry that my stuff might be like that, too.

I think I prioritize other people’s opinions of me very highly, which is not necessarily a good thing - it’s a thing that causes a lot of anxiety.

I hate watching me. I hate watching me. It just makes me feel awful. I think, 'I look stupid from that angle. I wish I didn’t let them put that shirt on me.’

special occasion date ideas

Anonymous: my girlfriend and I are in high school and have gone to Japan on a school exchange for 3 months together! Everything is going really well and though Japan is a bit conservative we spend our break between classes making out in the locker room :P we’re nearly at the 6 month mark and we’ve never been happier with anyone else I wish I could cuddle with her more but we have to wait till we get home. I’m just so glad to have her here with me. What do u think I should do for her for our 6 month mark?

this is so wonderful to hear!! happy half year to you both! I’m so jealous you get to see your love every day <3 friend, you came to the right place because I could write novels about dates i can’t wait to take my girlfriend on. I’m taking this ask in the direction of what to do for 6 month mark, not what should you get as a gift - let me know if I misread. 

I think a lot of this depends on your personality/interests and your girlfriend! here are some ideas that i think might spark and idea or two. I’m only posting dates that I think are special occasion or out of the ordinary - trust me, I have tons more. just ask!

also, the price tag is something to consider! you could have just as much fun, if not more, spending $10 on a date than paying 10 times that amount. It’s still something to think about/possibly discuss, especially since you, anon, are still in high school like myself. 

Food adventures (I love food, okay)

  • classic dinner at a nice restaurant. sounds cheesy, but it could also be really fun. you can dress up, do makeup side-by-side, act all fancy and adult, then come home and surprise her with flowers before and lounging around in sweats playing board games (cards against humanity, anyone?)
  • restaurant-hopping date… go to one restaurant for appetizers, then move on to another for a soup/salad etc etc for main course, dessert, and then end with drinks at a cafe.
  • try some really exotic food, if you’re both up for the challenge. you could even attempt making a complex meal yourselves!


  • bucket list worthy - hot air ballon ride, whale watching, bungee jumping. opera or ballet performance. It’s something you will always share and remember!  I’m sure it get’s pricy, but it’s definitely not something you’ll forget anytime soon.
  • drive in theater - old-fashioned, very cliche but i’ve always wanted to
  • museum date aka admire art but more importantly each other! Gotta love the art museum cliche “observing the masterpiece” but completely ignoring the painting to stare at your girlfriend. most museums I know of have a free admissions day each month!
  • go to a carnival or fair - have her win you some sort of prize (and vice versa), cling to each other on all the rides, share dessert, take lots of pictures
  • shamelessly do a really cool, lame local tourist attraction you’ve been meaning to try! If you’re a “go big or go home” type, you can even both wear some broad-brimmed hat and a fanny pack.


  • for natural science nerds - aquarium, science center, botanical gardens, observatory, or zoo date! impress her with your knowledge - or lack thereof - of flora and fauna. nothing is cuter than watching baby sea otters (except possibly your date)
  • go on a picnic! It’s honestly so romantic to go on a long hike then settle down on a checkered blanket to eat homemade sandwiches and cookies.
  • seasonal fruit or berry picking - obviously depending on time of year
  • If you’re living near a large body of water, kayaking and paddle-boarding are incredibly fun!

let me know how you spend your “monthiversary” (my sweetheart claims it’s a real word)

  •  “It’s my first year teaching and I have no idea what the hell I’m doing and these kids are staring at me SO PLEASE GIVE ME SOME POINTERS I’M STRESSING OVER HERE”
  •   “I visited your classroom as I was passing by because I need to hand you some paperwork from the principal and HOLY MOLY YOU’RE A GODSENT ANGEL THE KIDS ARE SO WELL BEHAVED HOW DO YOU DO IT”
  •   “We’re both single co-teachers in the same classroom and I think we really work well together but there are times when I catch you sigh wistfully and—d-did I just hear you say how great we’re going to be if we raise our own kids together?!”
  •  “A kid in my class just threw up and I called you to help because I know you sent your kids to science and I think you left quite an impression on my kids because they haven’t stopped talking about you the last couple days.”
  •  “I notice you had a stressful day today so let me take you out for some drinks and now you can’t stop crying on my shoulder”
  •  “I’m practically falling asleep on my feet and you show up to my classroom offering coffee LET ME LOVE YOU”

The 50’s is such a perfect AU setting for EAH. I like the idea of sweet naïve little Holly doing her best to live up to incredible expectations from her upper-class family (and really loving it), while Poppy is stubbornly determined to be a career woman, and nags their parents daily about going to a real college.

Meanwhile, Darling runs off in secret in the evenings to dress-down and apprentice at an auto-shop in the rough part of town. The boys there are happy to help her shirk convention. Her parents have no idea she slinks home every night covered in grease and sweat. They expect her to attend what amounts to a finishing school, and start a family with someone they approve of, not to work on engines and paint jobs for a living.

Of course they meet when the twins’ little sports car breaks down and gets towed to Darling’s shop. Holly is surprised to find herself smitten with the pants-clad girl who smells like oil and keeps her gorgeous hair tucked up in a rag. She’s instantly head-over-heels and already planning their wedding.

Darling, of course, cant help but adore the girl who took one look at her -filthy and breaking every social convention of what a rich young woman should be- and immediately decided she liked her that way.

Then they smooch and run away together (and poppy comes too) The End

4 days before opening night, I sneeze in class and a cast member says “get your shit together, we need you.” 3 days before opening night, I get a sore throat and some nasty drainage and I say to myself “OH MY GOODNESS GET YOUR DANG SHIT TOGETHER RIGHT THIS INSTANT YOUNG LADY”

A/n: I’m back with the most experimental piece of writing I’ve ever attempted. I honestly have no idea if it worked or what the hell this is supposed to be so, yeah. Enjoy.

Please tell me what you think because  I am very confused about this piece

Sit down next to me, child, and I’ll tell you a story.

Once upon a time—

(‘Why does everything have to start with once upon a time? That phrase doesn’t even make sense!’

‘Hush, child. Listen and you’ll understand. For this story, you’ll understand why it had to start once upon a time.’)

Once upon a time, there were two boys. One had grey eyes like an oncoming storm and the other had hazel, the exact shade of the setting sun.

(‘Two boys? But that’s not how these stories are supposed to go.’

‘It’s really not, is it? But nonetheless…’)

The two boys had many dreams and had many fears. One had more dreams and the other had more fears but that doesn’t matter. They were two boys and that’s what’s important. They danced around each other like two planets orbiting each other in one constant, steady motion. They had no need for a sun, no need for anything greater than themselves. They were already great. What one lacked, the other had. What the one wanted, the other was. They circled each other in eternal balance.

This is how their story ends—

My 28th birthday is 1 (one) week from tomorrow and while I love parties I have been too busy to plan a big party && also am not really feeling it this year so here are some ideas I have had of things to do to celebrate:

- Go on a Tinder date. Don’t tell them it’s my birthday. (Obviously a bad idea but has potential for whackiness.)
- Get one or both of my nipples pierced (This is supposed to be what I do for my 30th but the world is on fire and I deserve something nice.)
- Splurge for a private boxing class. Punch things. Scream.
- Get a small but colorful tattoo. Maybe of a bumble bee.
- Have people over to play True American from New Girl. Find out if we can understand rules to True American from New Girl. (I know this is LIKE a party but it would only need like six people so it seems pretty safe and easy.)
- Drink a whole bottle of champagne and eat fancy cheese fondue while watching When Harry Met Sally in a cute underwear set in bed and petting my cat.
- Break into my store in the middle of the night and steal all the small houseplants I’ve been coveting but not wanting to spend money on. Turn my bedroom into a jungle. Begin a life of crime.
- A calm evening of drinks with close friends at a bar I don’t have any bad memories at.

Hi Steph! I was wondering if I could rant a bit? My mother this morning told me she wants me to have a shrink and have meditation class for my anxiety disorder. I don't feel comfortable with going to them. I've been really good about not having anxiety attacks anymore. 4 years ago I would have gotten anxiety attacks twice a day but know I've been getting anxiety attacks twice every 4 months. She said she doesn't want me "stress-eating" and I don't even stress-eat. I've been trying (continued)

(Anxiety rant anon) to get rid of my anxiety and now I feel like a sad case because I’m getting help for something I have under control and I don’t know what to do. Do you have any idea?

My advice is to just give therapy a chance, I went to therapy a couple years ago but I didn’t really get the chance to see how well it could work for me because my parents were kinda weird about the whole thing and made me feel guilty about going. But if you give it a chance it may really help you, anxiety is terrible to live with, I know because I live with it too, and if I had an option to try to get rid of it I’d be there straight away. I know you may feel strange and you think people might judge you but I promise it can help you get through things. If you still feel uncomfortable about it after a few sessions then talk to your mum about it and see how it goes. 

I wish you luck with everything and I hope therapy can help you!

A wonderful anon said: Maybe like, Nico still going to school and Will as med student working at the hospital (not an AU though) and whenever Nico doesn’t have school, Will forgets his lunch at home so that Nico (the devoted boyfriend) brings it to him. Maybe the nurses gossiping or one of Nico’s classmates overhearing them or something… I don’t know if you can work with that, but I’ve had this in my head for a while and really love your writing, so…
So, here it is! I hope I did your idea justice.

‘Hey, di Angelo!’

A boy Nico recognized from some of his classes named Ben, ran up to him in the hallways of his school, slightly panting.


He turned his head to look at the Ben. The boy had messy brown hair and a charming smile. He was quite handsome and, in a way, he reminded Nico of Percy. Although, that didn’t mean anything; he hadn’t thought of Percy that way in years.

‘You wanna come with us?’, Ben pointed to a group of people standing a little further down the hallway. He recognized some, but not all of them and he wondered why Ben decided to ask him today. He got along pretty well with some people at school and Ben was one of them, but he never did anything with him outside of school. Although he was getting better, he still wasn’t entirely comfortable with the whole people thing and preferred hanging out with his closer friends. And Will. ‘We’re just going to grab some lunch and then head to the park or something.’

Nico readjusted his backpack and shook his head. ‘I’ve got something to do, but another time maybe?’

When he looked at the people patiently waiting for Ben again, one of the girls gently waved at him. She looked nice. Maybe he would go with them another time. He supposed it could be quite fun maybe.

Ben didn’t seem surprised by that answer. He ruffled his hair. ‘Yeah, cool, no problem. Where are you going?’

Nico knew Ben was probably really curious, he was one of those people, but Nico wasn’t used to people asking him questions like that. He really did his best no to scare anyone away with his son of Hades vibe (although no one at his school knew about that), but he still wasn’t the most approachable guy. Apparently Ben thought differently than everyone else. He probably sensed Nico’s hesitation too, because he added: ‘Obviously you don’t have to tell me if you don’t want to.’

‘No, it’s fine. I’m having lunch with my boyfriend.’

‘Oh’, Ben said, his eyes widening in surprise, but not in a bad way. Nico always braced himself for the reaction people would have, but he had decided a long time ago that he didn’t give a fuck about what people thought. Although he actually quite liked Ben and it would be a shame if it all ended now. ‘Is he like, kinda scary like you?’, Ben asked.

‘Excuse me?’

‘You know, you’re kind of scary. With all your black clothes and stuff. Is your boyfriend like that too?’ Ben looked genuinely interested and Nico chuckled.

‘Not… really, no.’, Nico answered, thinking of Will in his hideous bright sweaters and flipflops, bringing the sun down to earth in his smile. And then of himself, wearing all black and being generally uncomfortable around people. He smiled.

Ben raised his eyebrows. ‘Well, I’d love to meet him one day? Bring him to school some day, I’m sure I’m not the only that’s curious as to what mysterious Nico di Angelo’s boyfriend looks like.’

‘Maybe, one day, sure.’, Nico answered hesitantly.

‘Anyway, I have to go. My friends are getting impatient. See you, Nico!’

Nico opened his mouth to answer, but Ben had already run off.

Nico turned and made his way to the exit. He though of what had just happened and how his life had changed over the past few years, on his way to the hospital where Will worked as a med student.

It was only a five minute walk from where Nico went to school, so he arrived quickly. It took another five minutes to find his way into the hospital to where Will was working. A nurse looked at him when he walked by. She was probably wondering what the hell someone like him was doing here all alone. Some people already knew who he was, he frequently visited Will when he was here, but this one didn’t look familiar.

He finally arrived in a hallway with a desk. Will was holding some papers next to it. He was talking to a woman and laughing. He hadn’t noticed Nico yet and Nico took advantage of that fact to just watch Will for a while. The way his arms gestured widely whenever he explained something. How his smile made everyone look bleak and like dark stars next to Will’s sunshine. How his hair bounced up and down when he excitedly moved his head, how his eyes glistened and drew everyone in making them unable to stop listening to him.

His gaze shifted and landed on Nico and it was almost impossible, but his smile brightened even more. Nico made his way to Will, going to stand next to him. Will bent down and pecked Nico’s lips sweetly. ‘What are you doing here, darlin’?’

‘You forgot your lunch again. Fortunately for you, you have an amazing boyfriend to notice things like that.’

Will put a hand around Nico’s waist and pulled him closer, dropping a kiss on his nose at which Nico scrunched it and swatted him away. ‘Thanks, Sunshine.’

The woman Will had been talking to, was watching them and smiling. ‘You two are disgustingly cute, I can’t stand it! I’ll see you later, Will.’, she said before walking away. Will said goodbye.

‘You always lecture me about not eating enough, but you’re the one that forgets your lunch all the time.’

‘Maybe I do it on purpose, so that you have to visit me.’, Will said.

Nico scrunched his eyebrows, sending the most intimidating glare he could muster Will’s way. ‘Are you fucking kidding me, Solace?’

Will was not intimidated by his boyfriend and giggled. ‘Yes, I am. Don’t worry. I still like it when you come over, though.’

Nico grumbled something.

‘What did you say?.’, Will said.

‘I would come over without a reason too.’, Nico begrudgingly repeated, his voice a little louder. He could feel his cheeks turning a little bit pink. Will only laughed and kissed him on the top of his head, still being way taller than Nico was.

He suddenly wrapped a hand around Nico’s wrist and pulled him with him. Nico didn’t question him and followed his boyfriend, until Will opened a door to an empty room. He closed the door behind them and pushed Nico against it.

The room was dark, but light enough to distinctly make out the bed in the corner and the startling blue of Will’s eyes.

‘We’re not doing it on a hospital bed, Will!’

‘Of course not!’, Will answered, sounding offended that Nico would ever think Will wanted something like that. ‘Have you any idea of how unhygienic that would be?’

‘What are you doing then?’, Nico asked when Will started leaving a trail of kissed down Nico’s neck.

‘Getting us some privacy. I know you’re probably too dense to notice, but I swear every nurse was ogling you out there. Every time you come by; you’re very popular here.’


‘Don’t tell me you don’t hear all the whispers behind your back. ‘Ooh, those legs. That ass. It’s Solace’s boyfriend again, how did Will get so lucky.’ I just want you alone for a while, away from all that. We can have lunch after.’

‘O – Okay’ Nico was not complaining.  He was fine with Will pushing him further against the wall and roaming his hands all over Nico’s body. He was fine with Will leaving soft kisses everywhere. He was fine with Will pressing his lips against his and softly opening their mouths until Nico forgot everything. His name, surroundings and how to think properly. His hands automatically went to grab Will’s hair and pulled him even closer, if that was possible. A moan escaped his mouth before he even had the time to try holding it in. Will smiled against his lips. Then, he pulled back.

Nico was breathing heavily, looking at Will in front of him and taking in the sight. His hair was a mess, his lips swollen and oh so obviously kissed, his eyes glistening. Nico thought he probably looked worse.

‘C’mon, we gotta go, darling’

‘I hate you. You can’t just do what you just did and then leave me hanging.’

Wil chuckled. ‘I don’t think you hate me that much by the look of things.’ He gazed down at Nico’s little problem.

‘No, I definitely hate you.’

I know nothing about American school systems, so i just wrote something. 

Also, I wrote this on my mother’s laptop and it doesn’T HAVE SPELLING CHECK!! What kind of laptop doesn’t have spelling check? So if there are any mistakes, I’m terribly sorry.

Hope you liked it!
