WHO???? (because it sure as heck wasn’t Mr. ‘Youngjae-is-mine-and-you-can’t-even-dream-about-him’ Jaebum)
But seriously WHAT THE ACTUAL FRICKITY-FRACK???? WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO PULL, CHOI YOUNGJAE??? WHAT’S YOUR GAME??? (You want me to explode???? Well. Done. akhdKLDHAKLHA)
I mean, I thought it was bad enough when he posted that tank-top selca back in November with all that skin and that look at the camera and just….
AND THEN HE STARTED PULLING THAT CRAP WITH THE FLIRTY BED SELCAS LIKE
I never signed up for this. I was perfectly content with him being gorgeous and handsome and precious and adorable and NOT A KING OF PROBLEMATIC SELCAS.
AND THEN HE SHOWS UP AND THROWS THIS AT ME????
I just…. he just…… this just…….. there are five moles visible right there AND THREE OF THEM ARE ON HIS NECK AND SHOULDER and my brain can NO LONGER COMPUTE BYE.
Listen. I am all for an appreciation for how gorgeous Youngjae is, but COULD HE HAVE TONED IT DOWN JUST A LITTLE BIT??? I mean. We’re talking about his eyes being all cute and gorgeous and aimed right at us, and that’s enough already, but then he’s got his adorable nose looking even more precious upside-down, and his precious little ears being so incredibly cute and totally visible next to his TWO-TONED HAIR STYLE THAT LOOKS SO GOOD??? AND HIS JAWLINE LOOKING SO NICE EVEN WITH THE WEIRD FILTER??? AND THEN HIS LIPS BEING ALL PINK AND POUTY AND JUST—no. I can’t. And we hAVEN’T EVEN GOTTEN PAST HIS FACE YET. ANON. WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME??? I’VE BEEN TRYING TO REPRESS THIS IN ORDER TO LIVE AND NOW. That neckline. That nape. Those collarbones. Those broad shoulders. THOSE FRICKING MOLES BEING ALL THERE AND VISIBLE AND ADORABLE AND– I don’t have a thing about his moles. What are you talking about?
I’m not okay, anon. Why does he do this to me? Why??
/JUMPS IN HERE HELLO I was wondering if I could make a request!! I love your merformers AU like a lot and I love love love your take on yandere characters as well. Could I hear your headcanons on a yandere merformer of your choice?
Oh yes, absolutely! :D I’m gonna do Brainstorm for this, because he seems like the type lol!
It’s Brainstorm’s loneliness that sets him down this path. He’s not exactly what you’d call a popular mer. Even among his so called friend group, he has a self-destructive tendency to alienate himself. It’s not his fault they don’t understand his genius. At least, that’s what he tells himself.
Meeting you was nothing short of a happy accident. He spotted your bright, yellow kayak as it passed by overhead one day, and immediately decided to investigate. He’s seen humans come by in boats to see the mangroves before, but it’s certainly not what he’d call an everyday occurrence.
The first thing he notices is that you’re alone, which to him seems unusual, as he assumes humans usually travel in packs. Yet here you are, quietly paddling your boat through the crystal clear waters, admiring the sunlight filtering through the branches above you, a faint smile on your face as you softly hum to yourself. It’s mainly for this reason that he decides to approach you. Even if it goes wrong, there’s not much one human can do against him.
It’s starling for you at first when he first snakes his way over to the side of your boat, but your shock is quickly replaced by amazement. You had heard and believed the legends about merformers ever since you were a small child, but you never dreamed that you would ever see one, never mind have one come up and strike up a conversation with you. Judging by the creature’s somewhat startled expression, you gather that this isn’t quite the reaction he had expected, or at least, not to this extent. You can only hope that your incessant questions and inane babbling aren’t as annoying as you fear they are.
Little do you know, however, that Brainstorm is far from annoyed. In fact, he’s ecstatic! Here is this tiny, strange, inquisitive little creature that he’s never even seen before who showers him with attention and compliments and just generally makes him feel actually worth something for a change. The more you talk, the more he grows to like you, and the more he likes you, the more appealing you start to become in his eyes. He didn’t quite notice before how your eyes seem to sparkle like the sun on the surface of the water, or the way your smile seems to bloom over your face like a water lily. He suddenly becomes very aware of how much he’d like to run his claws over your soft skin or through your hair and the thought causes a bright flush to creep over his face.
He offers to show you all the secret spots of his beautiful home, places that the other humans never even knew existed, in return for a small kiss on the cheek. You giggle and concede to his request thinking to yourself about mers and their mischievousness natures, unaware of how the small brush of your lips sends his stomach flip flopping. Brainstorm leads you all over the mangroves, showing you where the spoonbills make their nests and where the best bromeliads grow along the shore. You’re so in awe of your lovely, almost magical, surroundings, that you don’t realize how long you’ve been here until you see the sun start to sink bellow the horizon.
Biting back your worry, you thank Brainstorm for showing you around and ask him to lead you back out again, which of course he will, for another kiss. You begin to notice however that he seems much less sure of himself this time than he did when first leading you into the heart of the mangroves. You chalk it up to the dimming light. Why else would he seem to be leading you down an increasing number of dead ends and wrong turns? By the time the sun fully sets you’re nearly in tears. Not only are you cold, tired, and hungry, but you’re legitimately concerned you might not survive with all the nocturnal predators creeping about (you could swear you saw a pair of yellow alligator eyes watching you from the surface of the water.)
Luckily you have Brainstorm there with you. Don’t you worry, pet! He won’t let anything happen to you! You’re completely safe as long as he’s around. In fact, he knows of a quiet, secluded spot not to far up ahead where you can rest for the night. He’ll watch over you the whole time. He’ll even catch you some fish first and maybe try to find you some oranges. You do look awfully hungry after all. It’s lucky that you ran into him or you might not have lasted the night. You just relax, poppet. He’ll protect you. Now how about another kiss?
You feel a small churning of dread begin to settle in your stomach as he proceeds leads you through the inky blackness of the mangroves with expert precision.
Okay, I’m hoping for some big battle against the Court of Owls at the end of the season that everyone gets involved in
And it’ll mean Eddie and Ozzie calling a temporary truce to their personal antagonism in order to survive the onslaught of Court assassins being sent after them (or whatever)
Then, during an ‘eye of the storm’ moment when they are hiding and unsure of their survival, they should take the time for a bit of emotional honesty. Which will be all serious and stuff - Eddie confessing he is glad Oswald survived and he is sorry he tried to kill him and Ozzie was right about them needing each other and stuff. And Ozzie would confess he still loves Ed and all that jazz
But MOST IMPORTANTLY it would include something like -
OSWALD [soft, genuine]: I’m sorry I killed Isabella.
Microfill prompt! Keith + Shiro, Star Wars AU, reunited after a long time apart
this is not the fic fill i think you were looking for ;)
“You’re still alive.”
“Hello to you too,” Shiro says, dropping his bag down by the door. Keith doesn’t get up to greet him, but that’s no surprise; his ankle’s still heavily bandaged, propped up on the low table by their couch. “No need to sound so surprised. How’s the ankle?”
“Slow,” Keith grumbles. Force-healing isn’t exactly his specialty, a fact Shiro’s sure Keith’s been lamenting for the entire last week. “And I am surprised. Lance didn’t kill you?”
Shiro rolls his eyes fondly, stepping over to check their two little plants. Both are alive and flourishing. They’ve done well under Keith’s care. “He’s not that bad. We actually have another mission assignment in a few days. How were things here?”
Keith’s eyes widen with surprise and - relief? Or is that hope, brightening up his previously sour expression? “A mission assignment? We do?”
“Sorry,” Shiro corrects, sheepishly. “You’re still on medical leave. I’ll do the next one with Lance again.”
Keith drops his data pad. “No.”
Shiro blinks. “He’s fine, Keith. It went well.”
“I’m your missions partner,” Keith says, flatly. The scowl’s back, full force.
Shiro raises one eyebrow, amused despite himself. “You also can’t walk.”
Keith grabs at the crutches leaning against the back of the couch. “I can walk by next week.”
“Keith,” Shiro begins, shifting around the furniture to help. Keith glowers at him; Shiro holds his hands up in empty placation.
“Don’t start,” Keith says, levering himself off the couch with the help of the sticks. If he leans heavily on the crutches, Shiro doesn’t exactly think now is the time to comment on it.
“I was only going to say that this is probably not your best idea,” Shiro says, meekly.
“Watch me,” Keith snaps.
(Loosely takes place after this, in the middle of this, and right before this)
