i really liked this thing okay

So at least on my dash, nobody ever drags the xxTPs, so I'mma do it really fast bc y'all really piss me off from time to time.

Like would it kill you to NOT critique rules from time to time trying to find all the damn loopholes? Like pls can u not. LIKE SURPRISINGLY JUST BC SOMETHING DOESN’T MAKE SENSE TO YOU DOESN’T MEAN IT’S NOT SENSIBLE IN THE LONG RUN?? Like is it so hard to realize that if you take into account EVERY SINGLE tiny ass thing you guys pick out, nothing would ever get done???

Rules, laws, procedures, etc, they’re there to make things easier. And like?? Honestly fuck you, ExTPs? Stop blatantly doing the loophole thing that the rules don’t cover just because you can. Y'all are so damn full of acting like a dick while not coming up with PROPER SOLUTIONS. And you, IxTPs? Just stop. You may not outwardly defy the untold laws, but you still don’t come up with solutions like the shut in you are.

Keep to your own crap and leave laws alone.

Good Things are coming

sorry if this isn't the right blog to ask or whatever i just really like the way you guys talk about things. i was wondering if you would be able to concisely like, tell me the main differences between socialism and communism are? when i google i either get way too simplistic answers or complicated answers. I've always considered myself a socialist but lately I've been more interested in communism so yeah was just wondering what the differences were. thanks xx

okay i answer this a lot, but like i guess we post a lot so no one wants to scroll through all that shit. Socialism is a state where the people own the means of production. other nation states exist where the people do not own the means of production, only in said nation state do people there own the means of production. COMMUNISM is stateless, all people own the means of production. There are no boundaries. This is the clearest difference I can give you. 

socialism: people have means of production, is a state

communism: people have means of production, nation states are abolished.

Okay. I’m really, really late, but this crappy thing took way longer than expected. The last time I’ve colored something was like five years ago and I never even tried to shadow my drawings back then?

So today (at least today in my time zone) the great @lesbianspacenerd has birthday and she’s such an amazing person!! Really, she’s awesome. I wanted to write a story in the beginning, but my english kind of sucks. Next I wanted to draw Pidge with Indira (just go read i here, it’s so good) but I just can’t draw.
So yeah. Please don’t hate my for this crappy idea and the shitty colouring.

I call it “Your favourite local trans buddies” btw.

Can I get some prompts about a boy with secret feelings for his best friend comforting the best friend through an anxiety attack? Thanks!!!

1) “Okay - breathe - just match my breathing.”
It wasn’t working. They weren’t breathing. Eyes distant, head probably spinning somewhere awful, starting to shake. They swallowed, before moving closer, really hoping that whoever judged these things and was keeping score didn’t think he was taking advantage. He wrapped his arms around them, drawing them to their chest and made a metronome of breathing. Patted their back. Muttered soothing words. Wasn’t that what people did in times like these? He hoped so. 
Slowly, their breathing evened out.


2) Their eyes darted around the crowded room, their whole body starting to tense. He touched their shoulder lightly to indicate his presence, before gently taking their wrist to guide them out of the rush of people and somewhere quieter. Guided them to sit down on the step in the crisp fresh air, before kneeling in front of them. His chest ached at the look on their face.
 “Tell me what you need.”


3) “I’m so proud of you.”
“Don’t be ridiculous.”
“I’m not - you’re doing great.”
“I think I just ruined your shirt.” They wiped their eyes, but the tears kept coming uncontrollably even as their body slowly stopped shaking.
“It’s fine, everyone wants an excuse to see me shirtless,” he said lightly. Just to watch them choke on a slightly scratchy laugh. “And hey, you haven’t thrown up on me yet.”
“Someone should give me a Nobel prize.”

“The way you flirt is just shameful,” Ray announced one day. It took Leonard by surprise, but sure, he’d bite. Maybe he’d get a little entertainment out of it. It wasn’t like he was wrong, suggesting he’d been flirting with him, but he had an appearance to keep. So, he raised an eyebrow, and hyped up his signature drawl.

“Flirting? I think you’re reading a little too much into it when I call you Pretty Boy.”

“Okay, really. You can drop the act. Mick told me you like me, or at least you’re attracted to me, or something. He said the pulling pigtails thing was just how you showed your affection. And the stealing wallets. You’ve been trying to impress me. Which, okay, I’ll admit, your skills are impressive, but in my opinion they could be put to better use than what you use them for, like maybe you-”

“Raymond.”

“Yes?”

“If I could rearrange the alphabet, I’d put U and I together.”

Ray blinked.

“What?”

“Would you prefer if I flirted with you like that instead?” Len asked. Ray furrowed his eyebrows together.

“Well, I mean… Wait. Wait a second, you actually have been flirting with me? … Hey! Don’t walk away from me! Leonard! Get back here!”

Astral Tip #3

Okay, so here’s a tip regarding breathing exercises for those who are learning to meditate and astral travel. See, for a long time, I didn’t find these exercises terribly effective for helping me focus. The reason why (I eventually realized) is I didn’t pay enough mind to three very simple words: “Hold your breath.”

That instruction is usually followed by something like “for a count of 3,” but I find it distracting to count, so I don’t bother. The really critical thing here is just emphasizing that hold both when you inhale and when you exhale. Do it until your lungs start to feel strained, then release the tension and do it again.

I can just about promise you that you will feel an immediate difference in how quickly your mind and body relaxes when you do this simple thing. It definitely made a huge difference for me when I was starting out. Good luck. <3

I saw Beauty and the Beast last night!

It was okay. I had fun, but it wasn’t the greatest thing ever. 

This post will have spoilers:

* Gaston and LeFou were very entertaining (also liked Lefou’s arc, even though it had its problems)

* Really like the new household servants- especially Plumette and Lumiere (you will never know love until you see a candelabra and a feather duster dance and play matchmakers); also, the wardrobe needed to sing more.

*Really, really liked Kevin Kline’s Maurice- he’s this kind, soft spoken man with a sad past and wants his daughter to have the best life and would spend all day painting and making music boxes and snarks so well.

*Also like Beast’s “Evermore”- like it was awkward at first, but I got really into it once we see how he was climbing over the tower to keep Belle in his sight as long as possible *tears* And it fits perfectly with this Beast because yes, he is dramatic! 

*Loved Luke Evans and Josh Gad singing “Gaston.” 

*Also loved the CGI Color fest that was “Be Our Guest,” like the cast who was singing “Gaston,” the people who were doing the animation and CGI in that sequence looked like they had fun doing it.

*I found Emma Watson’s portrayal of Belle (my favorite princess ever), adorable. And active and quite a thinker (and practical! She makes this washing machine and it might’ve work and wanted to teach kids how to read!) . Until they make her sing. Like, you could tell she was auto-tuned. Why Disney? Why put Emma Watson through that?! You’re Disney, you can go to any talented actress/singer, write her a check and go “You’re Belle now, we start shooting on Monday.” Or at least dubbed Watson so she could concentrate on being adorable and gleeful, and put emotion when those singing parts came up! 

*Would definitely wanted a debate between Belle and the Beast on Romeo and Juliet vs  Lancelot and Guinevere- We seen them discuss a little about books and I wanted more of that. Beast is obviously into Arthurian lore, with knights and kings, duty verse passion and magic! Expand on that! And Belle loved romance and prose and true beauty! 

*Also would’ve loved them talking about their dead moms, and their dads- how awesome Belle’s dad is and how awful Beast’s dad was- also how Beast reflects on his past and go “Man, I was not good at my job.”

*AS for the finale, with the transformation… they messed up. And I know they messed up because I still remember the “Be Our Guest” sequence and it yeah, it was totally CGI but it was cool, and they could’ve done the same with that- take the original scene, remix, play with it, make it their own. But it was very lackluster. And this was after the ‘roided up confrontation with Gaston. 

What almost made up for this was adding the ‘deaths’ of the household staff- one by one, these comic relief characters die, with loved ones searching for each other, begging to stay awake and all the while knowing that its too late. And then, they get a second shot. They’re human again and everything is happy. 

But it was done so much better in the 1991 animated film! 

*This film tried to fill in the plot holes in the animated film- some were okay (like the memory wipe thing), others were sad (plague hit Paris; the prince’s family), and others made things worse (that damn book). 

So all in all, it was okay, with some fun bits in and some not so fun bits. 

Next is Mulan and Aladdin! Yes! War epic AND a magical adventure!

Okay but can you imagine tyler bate eating you out.... like his scruff scraping your thighs, the kisses he leaves around the lips and how he would tease.....

Can I imagine??? CAN I?

The answer, sweet anon, is I imagine it all too much. Literally it is pretty much a constant thing in the back of my head because now? He doesn’t just have his cute mustache, he’s also growing the scruffy scruff. And well. I’m all for the scruffiness scratching against my thighs and.. Really everywhere tbh, I’m good with it everywhere.

And Tyler, he’s not the ‘you lay down and I’ll just go down,’ type okay. He’s the ‘sit on my face and if you try to squirm away, I’m only going to hold you tighter,’ type. Like, he’s a huge tease okay, that’s just the kind of person he is. Y'ALL THINK HE IS THIS SWEET LITTLE GOOBER, TRUST ME I DID TOO, but he’s not. HE KNOWS EXACTLY HOW HOT HE IS AND he knows exactly what he’s doing, and he’s a god damn tease and I hate him.

And he wouldn’t just leave it at eating you out, oh no. HE’S GOnnA BE AN ASSHOLE ANd the dirty talk, oh my gooooooddddd, the dirty talk. So it would start with him kissing your thighs like while you’re already embarrassed and dying and he would nibble on them and like “you gotta tell me what you want love,” and like??? THIS WAS HIS IDEA WHAT, so you would just. “Tyler,” and he would probs be like “as much as I love you whimpering out my name like that, that isn’t what I asked for,” AND MY h e a r t i s m e l t i n g. And so you would squirm a little bit when he bite down on your thigh again, his scruff rubbing a bit as he did. “Please,” “Please what love,” AND THSI BOY “Eat me out,” AND THEN HE WOULD SMIRK A LITTLE AND one last kiss to your thigh before HE JUST GOES FOR THE GOLD. AND YOU WOULD BE SO SHOCKED BY HOW FAST HE JUST WENT FOR IT, You would falter a little bit, his grip would just tighten and you would have to hold onto the headboard because damn.

And after a lil bit he would move away, teasing licks to your clit all while he’s muttering about how sweet you taste which is making my heart hurt. And you’re just like a moaning mess above him, one hand on the headboard to hold yourself up, the other on your breast and you’re just immersed in the way his tongue is pleasuring you all while his scruff is leaving burns and he’s like hornier than he was before because the sight of you. And that’s when he focuses because he needs to make sure you get off to his tongue before he even thinks about fucking you and?

Basically he would probs make you cum twice with his tongue because he’s a cheeky bastard and then WOULD COME THE SWEET, SWEET LOVE MAKING, I NEED TO STOP BEFORE MY HEART EXPLODES KAY THANKS FOR PLAYING, BYE.

anonymous asked:

so i have a question: i was raised without religion, but since i've been at college, sometimes i go with my best friend (who is jewish) to shabbat services at hillel on campus. going to shabbat makes me feel connected with god in a way i've never felt before, and i'm considering getting a copy of the torah to study. i really do want to have a more serious relationship with god, and i feel like this is what he wants from me. is it okay to explore judaism in this way? or am i being appropriative?

Reading the Torah is in no way appropriation. Studying Judaism is not appropriation. Attending Shabbos with a Jewish friend is the furthest thing from appropriation. Keep doing what you are doing and if it speaks to you go talk to a rabbi.

Any ideas how to make a character hated???

OOOOOO YES 

Okay so to start, make them arrogant, not in an endearing way (if such a thing is possible) but in a way that just makes them infuriating. Have them constantly talk down to others and be really elitist, sexist, racist. 

Abusing spouses, family, children, SO, and animals is another way to make them hated. Using slurs is good. 

This isn’t super detailed but i really like writing characters that people hate. 

The key I think is to think about characters people love to hate and pick out the common tropes. 

I hope this helps! (Ebeth)


Give them a mindset/attitude like the child of Umbridge from Harry Potter and literally any villain you might see on BBC Sherlock. I don’t know about you, but I’d hate that mashup more than literally anything. ~Kylee

Criminal Minds: 12x18
  • Rossi - the only father figure Reid has left 😿 
  • I guess when Reid is gone, they just give lines about really random things to another agent?
  • JJ’s so good with parents. I really love seeing her shine in that role.
  • Walker has a teenage daughter? How old is he??
  • I really loved the plot with the unsub, but there was no profiling??? What was his name? Why did he do this? What behavior did they look at?? Plz satisfy my poor psychology major heart.
  • Calvin Shaw is shady as heck. 
  • I really admire the writers for trying to do this longterm plot line, but I feel like they’re really struggling to pull the weight of both an “unsub of the week” and a “Reid’s Shawshank Redemption” in every episode. In the great words of the wise Ron Swanson:  Don’t half-ass two things. Whole-ass one thing.
  • Okay that was probably really clever because it shows him who used the supply and who was in on it but -
  • DID SPENCER REID JUST ATTEMPT TO MURDER LIKE HALF THE PRISON OR SOMETHING?

This season got real dark real fast. Please get my baby out of there before he becomes an unsub!

caramelmachete  asked:

A lot of fanfics write that Dick doesn't really drink alcohol much and that Jason likes Scotch. What do the comics say (if anything)?

I know Bruce never drinks, Jason gets pictured in bars often having a beer, I believe I’ve seen Dick and Babs enjoy red wine and also beer together.

okay fun/random thing, WAY back in the mists of time when parents freaked out that superhero comics were making their son’s gay (the 1950s, it was a thing) comic book publishers came up with a “Comics code” which was mostly about sex, but is also why there’s no swearing in comics, or not much any ways DC ditched the code formally in 2011, but old habits die hard, I’d guess that’s why you don’t see much hard alcohol in comics, the code

but to answer your question I’ve never seen a comic in which Dick says he doesn’t drink, or a comic where Jason drinks scotch, I’ve seen them both drink beer 

Taehyung as Demeter

And now it is time for the second half of the Daegu line, the second half of Taejin, the love of my life who looked so cuddly and cute in the last episode of Run oh my god I love him in winter coats so much I wanna hug him, Kim Taehyung aka V aka tae tae as Demeter the Goddess of Agriculture (and other things)

  • Okay so I really feel like Demeter fits Tae so well, one of the first reasons is that she’s very kind
  • Tae is such a sweetheart and he’s so nice and polite to the people around him and he’s really outgoing and friendly, he’s such a bundle of love and affection
  • He is the king of fan service, he’s got such a cute friendship with the fandom, he teases us, we tease him and you can just tell that he genuinely enjoys being around the Army and talking to us, even if there’s nothing serious to talk about
  • Demeter is modest
  • Tae still gets so :D when people compliment him and sometimes I wonder if that kid knows how talented he is bc I feel like we’ve just brushed the surface, it took us how many years to find out he could sing a song like Stigma??
  • He can dance, he can act, he can sing but he’s still so humble, that’s one of my favorite things about Bangtan in general, they’re all so down to earth despite being so talented and even when they’ve got sold out shows they’re still so grateful and I’m so proud to stan them
  • A huge reason for choosing her is bc she’s got a lot of focus on family, she’s a Goddess of fertility, she’s very focused on her daughter, etc.
  • Everybody knows how much Tae loves kids and loves his family, he’s such a family man and it’s one of my favorite things about him bc he really does think about his family all the time
  • He’s always thanking his family in speeches, he’s been shown calling his family members just to update them on where he’s going and that he’ll be safe, he’s posted pictures of him with his parents which was one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen oh my lord
  • He really really looks up to his father and I think that’s really sweet, I remember there was one V live he did a while ago, I think it was when he going through some bby pictures before a show, and the way he talked about his father was so loving and I’m honestly really really happy that he’s so close with his family
  • Demeter has a gentle soul
  • Underneath all of the playfulness, he’s got a gentle side, we all saw it when he accidentally hit Jin with the toy gun and immediately comforted him and was so concerned and just sat there and stroked his hair until he knew Jin was okay or just recently in the last episode of Run when Jimin lost the first race to Jungkook, the first thing Tae did was run over to Jimin and hug him and he’s just a lil soft bub who wants to make everyone happy and makes everyone around him smile and giggle and feel loved 
  • Demeter is the Goddess of agriculture
  • I don’t know why but I could totally see Tae as a lil farm boy, with his messy hair and a bit of dirt on his cheek, helping pick strawberries it’s such a cute thought
  • He has all of this strawberry knowledge, I think it was a family friend who owns/owned a strawberry farm and now all I can think of teeny tiny Tae before debut spending his free time on the farm and munching on fresh strawberries and I just need it so much tbh I love him as Demeter is there fan art for this I want it plz

Hiyaaaah pasta lovers here ! So a disclaimer I'm french so we may don't eat the same way buuut, i'm always a slut for pasta. Okay so, let's start by the basics: Butter. Like, just put butter in your pasta ( like real butter not margarine, salted butter is even better ) and maybe throw some gruyere and that s it, the cheapest and one of the better. BUT if you feelin fançy, just throw anything in it. Like, sometimes i just melt whatever cheese is in my fridge, or like throw some (1/2)

olive oil in it, add vegetables/chicken/whatever really. And some gruyere. Or parmesans, cheeses like that ! Or, another thing I like is egg ! I like, prepare my egg like i would do for an omelet but add my pasta while cooking it ! Now, let’s talk about cold pasta wich is great too ! The simplest thing for them is ketchup. With gruyere, I’m realising i eat a lot of gruyere, damn. But, again if you feel fançy, you can do a sauce with like, cold nature non sweetened yogurth or ( 2/3 oups )

or cottage cheese, just put it in your pastas, add some vinegars ( I like the red wine one ) ( god damnit cheese and wine am I THAT cliche ? ) salt, pepper and you’re done ! Okay i’m super messy in my explanation but, almost anything goes well with pasta. Really, just experiment and don’t be afraid ! Put everything in your pan and there you go ! Wow, that was a lot of talking about pastas.

PICTURE ME SITTING HERE WITH A NOTEPAD FRANTICALLY WRITING NOTES AS I READ THIS

THIS IS SO MUCH PASTA INFORMATION… I AM SO GRATEFUL THANK YOU!!!!! it’ll be a long time before i’m comfortable putting cheese on pasta but i definitely look forward to that day and i will try these thigns out when i get there!!! thank you so much!!!

I'm not really sure how fiction can cause actual physical harm to a person, but then I don't own a 3-D television...

fiction causes harm to people because awful, horrible people (pedophiles, for example!) use that fiction to groom impressionable people (children, for example!) into thinking that what they’re seeing in the fiction is okay. they have done it before and they will do it again. fiction is used to groom people into thinking terrible things, like pedophilia, are okay, and people can and will use it to cause Actual Physical Harm to people. hopefully you understand

Comfort Zone: Part 3

here’s chap 3 🐝

part 1 // part 2

You told your friend about jinyoung and the first thing she did was shout over the phone.

“Things are escalating! It started with a text and now you’re going to his house??”

“It’s not what you’re thinking okay, we’re just going to do work,”

“Yeah, do work,” she paused to laugh, “I trust you, but somehow that jinyoung guy can’t be trusted. Be careful,”

“You’re freaking me out,”

“Okay just chill, maybe he really meant doing work, like real work. Don’t think about it until tomorrow. Remember to keep me posted. Wait, do you want me to be there?” your friend suggested.

You pondered for a while and thought it wouldn’t be a good idea. It’ll seem funny if your friend were to sit there and do nothing while looking at you and jinyoung interact awkwardly. “It’s fine, I’ll text you when I’m at his place and tell you how’s it going,”

Tomorrow’s going to be a long day.


When you entered class, jinyoung was already seated. He flashed you a smile and you returned the greeting with a frown, which he found amusing. Thank goodness today’s schedule consisted of another lesson which wasn’t with him. But this torment will continue after school.

“I’ll wait for you at the lounge later,” jinyoung said as he past by your seat to go for his next lesson.

“Do I even have a choice?” you asked sarcastically.

He shrugged and flashed you his signature smile before leaving. Time has never past by so fast, and before you knew it, you were already on your way to meet jinyoung. You spotted him sitting on the couch and you walked over expressionless.

“Great, let’s go,” he clasped his hand together and packed his bag enthusiastically, which earned you another frown. Why was he so excited about this? You were starting to wonder if he has something up his sleeves.

The both of you got onto the bus and he moved to the back and took the inside seat, leaving the outer one for you, but you took the seat a few rows in front of him. There was no way you’d sit with him. You plugged in the earpiece to your phone and shut everything out. Throughout the journey, you were focused on scenery outside. Being alone was a routine, and looking out the window with music playing became a part of you. You had no idea how you became this way. Maybe because you just didn’t like how the people around you used to bring you down, brushed your ideas off, and all sorts of negativity. You were done with dealing with people, dealing with this society that wouldn’t fit you. You were fine with being a misfit, at least you still had your best friend. That was enough.

While appreciating the life out there, jinyoung was looking at you. He thought you were different, not in a bad way, but a rather special way. There was no doubt you are one of the prettiest girls in class, but unlike them, you were cold. You had walls built around you that nobody could take them down. You had a facade that showed how headstrong you were, and to the rest, you were incapable of emotions. They hadn’t seen you smile or laugh, but in your opinion, they didn’t need to.

The neighbourhood soon turned into a place where branded cars are found parking on the streets, mansions everywhere, and high quality shops. You noticed jinyoung walking past you and signalled to alight at the next stop. You trailed along behind him as he made his way to one of those cafes that seemed to be only for the rich.

“You wanna eat? I’m buying lunch,” jinyoung asked as he opened the door and entered the cafe.

You shook your head despite feeling the growl in your stomach. “I’ll wait for you outside,” you said and left. While waiting, you were questioning why you even agreed on this in the first place. You took a walk nearby the cafe, somewhere jinyoung could find you. There was a small garden with a bunch of yellow, red, and pink flowers. You smiled and took pictures of it when a voice startled you.

“You like flowers?” jinyoung asked.

“Don’t you know it’s rude to creep on others?” you frowned again and put your phone away.

“You really like frowning, don’t you?”

“None of your business,” you said and looked away.

“Okay, but this is your business,” he said and handed you a paper bag with food and coffee.

“What?” you looked at him with doubt.

“For you,” jinyoung smiled and prompted you to hold it.

You looked at the bag for a while and you didn’t know what to do. At that moment you were lost. Were you supposed to take it? You wished you could text your friend and ask for her opinion. Jinyoung gently took your hand and gave the bag to you. You were taken aback by his sudden physical contact, and everything seemed to pause. You looked up at him, and somehow reading your mind, jinyoung assured you with his gaze. The gaze gave off a reassuring and comforting vibe, something you had not seen in anyone except your best friend. Jinyoung went ahead and lead the way to his house, where you followed silently. You were now standing outside his house. It was a double-story mansion painted in white, with a large garden just outside his door. Your eyes widened at the sight of a variety of flowers in different colours. You couldn’t help but smile really brightly. On the other hand, jinyoung was mesmerised by your smile.

“My mom grows these flowers,” the boy said confidently.

You abruptly stopped smiling knowing that jinyoung caught you.

“Cool,” you went back to your usual state and walked away from him, heading towards the door.

As the door opened, you were instantly warmth by the interior and decors of his house. Despite having such a big house, it didn’t seem empty and cold. Somehow you could sense that this family shares a close bond, and his mother sure likes colours, but you weren’t complaining. Jinyoung led the way to his room and you hesitantly followed while looking around his house.

“This is my room, make yourself comfortable,” the boy stood by the door and put his arm out, signalling for you to enter.

“Uh, can’t we do it in the living room?” you gave him a questionable look.

“Why? Are you scared that I’d do something?” jinyoung let out a laugh and you weren’t amused. He then continued, “I promise I won’t do anything. Besides all the materials are in here so it’s more convenient. And it’s quieter inside here,” he gave you a reassuring look.

“Okay,” you said calmly and walked into his room. You were actually surprised to see how clean his room was. And it was very minimalistic. Almost everything was white, with the exception of grey and pastel blue on some areas. He had two shelves filled with books and song albums. You couldn’t decide if he was a nerd, but even if he was, he was a good looking one. You stood in front of his shelves and scanned through the books, till you found one that caught your eye.

“This book is limited edition,” you muttered as you traced your finger over it.

“Yeah, I had to find someone to get it for me. It took a long time,” jinyoung said as he watched you. “You can borrow it if you want, I’m done reading,”

You gave a small smile and brushed the idea off. Although you wanted the book so badly, you didn’t know how to allow yourself to accept jinyoung’s offer. The both of you settled down and started on the assignment. Jinyoung took out so many useful books and you were lowkey glad you came over.

“Oh yeah, I forgot about lunch,” he suddenly thought of it in the midst of discussion. He made his way out to the kitchen and brought the food and drinks in.

“I don’t know what you like to eat so I just bought two of the same thing. Oh and your caramel macchiato,”

“How did you-” just when you were about to ask a question, jinyoung interrupted.

“Know that you like it? You drink it in school every day, it’s hard not to notice,”

Notice? Was jinyoung noticing you all these while?

“Thanks,”

“Oh wow you could actually thank people?” he teased, and you rolled your eyes at his childish behaviour. “A pretty girl like you should stop rolling her eyes all the time,” jinyoung continued.

“A guy like you should stop flirting with girls in his bedroom,” you rebutted and he shook his head with a smile.


The both of you were just eating when he played a song that caught your attention.

“Wait, isn’t this defsoul?” you stopped whatever you were doing and your eyes widened.

“Yeah?”

“You listen to defsoul??” you couldn’t contain your excitement. Defsoul, also known as im jaebum, is your favourite song artiste. You love all his creations and you admire him a lot.

“Um yeah, why? I can’t decide if you like it or not,” jinyoung stopped eating and gave you a puzzled look.

“I love his songs, hands down the best singer,” you smiled so widely, like a girl who got to eat her favourite snack.

“Wow, I never knew,” the boy laughed and a smirk crept up. “Guess what, I’m friends with him,”

“What?” you weren’t believing.

“We’re really good friends,”

“No way, why would the both of you be friends??”

“What do you mean? Can’t we be friends?” jinyoung threw his hands up and questioned your doubt towards him.

“Prove it,” you dared him.

“One day you’ll find out,” jinyoung ignored your request and went back to eating.

“Knew you were lying,” you raised a brow and shrugged.

How ridiculous was it for them to be friends? You were never taking his word for it.

After a few more hours of working on the assignment, the both of you were tired and you decided to go back.

“Where’s the restroom?” you asked.

“Turn right and walk further down,”

Jinyoung was left alone in his room and he couldn’t stop smiling. He had no idea you listen to his friend’s songs, and the most amusing of all, you didn’t believe when he said they’re friends. Jinyoung sighed and turned facing his shelves, and he was suddenly reminded of the book you were interested in. He knew you wanted to read it, and he also knew for a fact that you would never borrow it, so he took it swiftly and placed it into your bag while you were gone. On the way back to his room, you heard noises from the front door, followed by a woman’s voice. She seemed to be on the phone. You fastened your pace and walked back to the room, ready to leave.

“I’m leaving,” you said and packed, “by the way there’s someone outside,”

“Oh, I think it’s my mom. And you’re leaving so fast?” jinyoung looked a little disappointed.

“I guess we’re done for the day,” you hung your bag on your shoulder and stood in front of him.

The both of you walked down the stairs to the living room when you caught his mother’s attention.

“Oh jinyoung, you’re back. And who’s this beautiful young lady?” jinyoung’s mother sounded very warm and friendly.

“She’s y/n,” jinyoung introduced you and you smiled shyly.

“Beautiful name for a beautiful lady,” his mother continued with the praise. Now you knew where jinyoung got his sweet tongue from. “So the both of you…?” she continued, wondering if you and her son were dating.

“Oh no, we’re just partners for an assignment,” you immediately shook the idea off her mind.

“I see, and you’re leaving? Why not stay for dinner?” she asked with such friendliness that you felt bad rejecting.

“I’m sorry I have to go,” you gave her an apologetic smile.

“The next time you’re here for the assignment, remember to stay, I’d love to have you try my cooking,”

“Okay mom, you’re scaring her,” jinyoung placed his arm over his mother’s shoulders, “what if she doesn’t want to come over anymore and we’ll get a bad grade?” he teased and shot you a funny look behind his mother, knowing that you wouldn’t flare up in front of his mother.

You smiled and shook your head at his mother, and when she wasn’t looking, you glared at jinyoung. He smiled and offered to send you out while you waved goodbye to his mother.

“You think that was funny?” you asked and crossed your arm.

“It was quite amusing,” the boy chuckled as you frowned, and he covered his mouth to stop himself from laughing. “I’ll send you back,” he cleared his throat and acted all gentleman.

“You can drive?”

“Uh no, but I have a chauffeur,”

“What a spoilt brat. I can go back on my own,” you turned and headed to the bus stop without saying goodbye to jinyoung.

“I’ll see you tomorrow!” he shouted as you went to the opposite road.


You plopped down on your bed after a tiring journey home. For some reason, your mind was filled with flashbacks of you and jinyoung. He was annoying and some of his behaviours were uncalled for, yet there was also another side of him that portrayed a different jinyoung. Although you hated his guts, there was no doubt that he’s good looking and, maybe kind - taking into consideration that he bought you lunch but you couldn’t generalise this one situation to all.

After a shower, you unpacked your bag and found a foreign item. The book. How did it end up in your bag? He must’ve placed it in when you weren’t in the room. You were about to text and scold him for being such a “know-it-all” wannabe but you decided against it. Since the book was now in front of you, why not read it? You were searching high and low for it and the fact that it was sold out had you disappointed for weeks. Now that you had it, you might as well put it to good use. Without wasting anymore time, you made yourself comfortable in your bed with blankets and fluffy pillows, and indulged yourself in the book. You were so engrossed in it that you didn’t realise time flew by so quickly. You checked your phone and notifications showed missed calls from your best friend and multiple texts from jinyoung. There was a text from your friend asking if you were alright, and that she’s worried, so you called her.

“Y/n! I called you so many times, why didn’t you pick up? I was so worried! Are you okay?” she didn’t give you any time to answer.

“I’m so sorry I was reading, didn’t see your calls. I’m fine,”

“How was the house tour?” your friend teased.

“Normal, nothing much happened. I met his mom and she thought we’re dating, and asked me to stay for dinner. I swear I almost died,”

“Oh my goodness how dramatic was that? Anything else?”

“Well, he bought me lunch even though I said I didn’t want to eat, and he knows that caramel macchiato is my favourite. He said he noticed that I drink it every day, freaky much. Oh and you know about that limited edition book I was talking about? He has it! And I guess he knew I wanted it so he slipped it into my bag without me knowing. And he offered to send me home which I obviously declined. He doesn’t even have a licence and spoke as if he could drive me home,”

“Y/n,” your friend paused, “Isn’t it clear?”

“What’s clear?” you asked.

“That he likes you?”

“I told you it’s impossible,”

“Nothing is impossible, y/n. Everything you mentioned earlier is a sign that he has interest in you. Trust me, I’ve seen all sorts of behaviours when a man is in love,”

“He’s not in love, you’ve got to trust me on this. We’re just working on an assignment, and after this we won’t even talk,”

“But he will, I promise you. Did he text you after you left?”

“Yeah, it’s nothing-”

“It is! Girl, you’re in for so much you don’t even know,”

You didn’t know what to say. You weren’t ready to let someone in, and you weren’t interested in having any relationships. Your friend was probably just guessing from the things jinyoung did for you, but maybe he just wanted to be friends, or even maybe, he was just trying to get you on his side so you could do better and not let him have a bad grade for this assignment. You told your friend you were tired after a long day and wanted to sleep, so you hung up the phone and closed your eyes for a while. Your phone vibrated and you received another text from jinyoung.

What does this boy have up his sleeves again?
