Reasons I Love Edward Elric

FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST WILL ALWAYS BE SPECIAL TO ME, I AM NAMING ANY POSSIBLE FUTURE CHILDREN AFTER THE CHARACTERS I LOVE MOST

Spoilers ahead , stop here if you’re not caught up !~~~~~~~~~


This is an appreciation post for my all-time favorite character in the series ( tied neatly with Ling Yao and Alphonse of course ) Edward Elric !


- Says FIGHT ME a lot but the second he’s actually in a fight he’s all ’ oh shit they accepted I’m gonna die ’

- Full stop street brawler , this kid will put you in the hospital


- So kind hearted that he literally swindled his way through saving a town and pretended not to care the entire time

- BIG BROTHER TO END ALL BIG BROTHERS???? I MEAN HE LITERALLY GAVE AN ARM FOR HIS BROTHER’S SOUL AND WOULD HAVE GIVEN HIS OWN HEART IF IT MEANT HIS BROTHER LIVED, IDEAL OLDEST SIBLING TROPE THERE

NO BUT THE WAY HE LOVES AL IS MY FAVORITE THING AND I WILL FIGHT YOU IF YOU EVER SUGGEST THE ELRIC BOYS COULD HATE EACH OTHER

No but like seriously I cannot get enough of Ed and Al and their pure bond , I cry a lot about these brothers

- SIDE NOTE HE WAS SO YOUNG WHEN HE AND AL PERFORMED HUMAN TRANSMUTATION TO TRY AND BRING BACK THEIR MOM, HE WAS ONLY LIKE 11 OR 12????!!!! SO YOUNG. One of the reasons this series resonated so strongly with me is because I lost my mom at around the same age Ed did , I also have a poor relationship with my father , and I would do anything for my siblings . Like ???? I fully understand how hard the pain of losing a parent is , and how it’s worsened by the surviving parent being distant ( even though it wasn’t Hohenheim’s fault )

Bruh I lost my mom when I was 9 and if alchemy existed in our reality ??? I high-key would have tried to bring her back . Going through grief like that in childhood really changes you , but then adding in the extra trauma the boys go through???? LOSING TWO LIMBS, THE PHYSICAL BODY OF YOUR BROTHER, AND FAILING HORRIFICALLY TO RESURRECT YOUR MOTHER ALL AT ONCE????? Ed my poor baby

He’s so strong despite all of the trauma and I love him so much ???? He’s a HUGE influence on me actually

- Smol ( not at the end of the series but for most of it !) bean


- Literally wears his signature snazzy red coat because he thinks red is a badass color ( it is !)


- Worries 24/7 about other people more than himself

- NO BUT LIKE WHEN HE AND LING GOT LITERALLY EATEN ALIVE ED WAS 100% MORE WORRIED ABOUT AL THAN HIMSELF


- When he finds out Scar killed Winry’s parents, he’s shocked and furious but doesn’t kill him, and later on stops Winry from killing him herself because he knows that it’s not the right path and that revenge isn’t necessarily good


- LING. LINGGGGG. HE NEVER STOPS BEING FRIENDS WITH LING EVEN WHEN LING GETS RECKLESS AND BECOMES A HOMUNCULUS, ED STILL STAYS BEST BROS WITH LING AND I JUST??? I JUST LOVE THIS FRIENDSHIP


- Adopts half the people who’ve tried to murder him and becomes their friend ( Edward Elric was Steven Universe-ing before Steven Universe )


Most notably he adopted two chimera guys ( human animal hybrids) that had tried to kill him and then later saved his life ( it was a complicated situation , they helped Ed get un-impaled ) and they become fairly crucial in the last boss battle later on


- His relationship with Roy Mustang , adoptive father figure extraordinaire


Like Roy is THE reason none of the top brass military guys found out Ed and Al performed illegal alchemy and he comes up with all the cover stories and excuses in the book ( you have a future as a con artist Roy , but you have to be the leader of Amestris so save that for retirement ) . Like Ed bickers endlessly with Roy but they both respect each other so much and worry about each other a lot and they are family ????

- WINRY ROCKBELL. WINRY. ROCKBELL. W I N R Y. R O C K B E L L.

HIS ENTIRE RELATIONSHIP WITH HER IS JUST SO ORGANIC AND RAW AND REALISTIC AND YES, THIS IS HOW YOU WRITE A LOVE STORY. Ed has so much obvious respect for her from the very beginning - literally making special trips to visit her whenever his automail is damaged because he KNOWS that nobody can fix it like she can ? Even though there’s probably lots of other automail mechanics , it’s always Winry for Ed. He trusts her and only her!

And the way he looks at her , the way he worries about her and tries his damnedest to keep her out of harm’s way , the gentle way he speaks to her when she’s most vulnerable …. I love how much he loves her. It’s beautiful and sweet and so so pure.


- He tries really hard not to kill anyone even if they’re trying to kill him??? He’s got such high value for life and I love him for it

- His sheer determination???? LIKE THE STRENGTH IT MUST HAVE TAKEN AFTER ALL HE SUFFERED TO KEEP GOING IS JUST.IT’S STAGGERING.

- He’s a genius but he’s also very down to earth ??? Like he’s actually very very VERY smart but plays it off like it’s NOTHING! But he could read high level alchemy texts as a child well enough to actually try and succeed in performing alchemy !( and so did Al!) Pretty sure your average six year old couldn’t do that. And he comes up with battle strategies on the fly , alters his alchemy within seconds of learning new information , uses experimental techniques often , and is THE YOUNGEST STATE ALCHEMIST EVER IN AMESTRIS. He’s skilled enough that when he’s stuck on a train hijacked by terrorists and Roy hears about it , Roy laughs . ’ Fullmetal’s on that train . We can go home early , boys. They don’t stand a chance. ’ And Roy was RIGHT! Ed and Al take down a group of armed terrorists with barely a scratch .


And other military officials see Ed the same way! Like no one’s ever worried that Ed might lose a fight, they’re just worried he’ll get hurt winning . ( okay Winry is worried he might lose but don’t tell him that ) He’s a prodigy and so many people respect him ???


- SUCCESSFULLY BOUND HIS BROTHER’S SOUL TO ARMOR

This is a very rare technique and incrediblely hard to do. It takes most alchemists years of study and training to even attempt alchemizing souls. And Ed did it on his first try while in a HUGE amount of pain and suffering severe blood loss.


- He always tries to learn from other people


Ed always tries to keep growing and changing his view of the world and never belittles other cultures or beliefs ( except in the case of Leto , but that religion was a fraud and Ed knew it )


- Tries hard to better lives with his alchemy and devotes his life to helping people who’ve suffered due to alchemy


- Makes the best faces

- OKAY BUT HEAR ME OUT THE ONLY TIMES HE CRIED IN CANON WERE RIGHT AFTER THE TRANSMUTATION THING HAPPENS AND HE’S SO AFRAID THAT AL MIGHT HATE HIM BECAUSE AL LOST HIS BODY AND ED BLAMED HIMSELF, AND WAS SO UPSET OVER IT THAT HE CRIED HIMSELF TO SLEEP FOR DAYS OVER IT.


AND THE SECOND TIME HE CRIES IN CANON IS IN THE LAST BOSS BATTLE SCENE, AFTER THE ENEMY IS DEFEATED AND AL HAS BEEN BOLD AND RECKLESS AND SACRIFICED HIMSELF TO GET ED’S ARM BACK FROM THE TRUTH GUY, AND ED IS DESPERATE TO GET AL BACK AND HOHENHEIM OFFERS HIMSELF AS THE TOLL TO OPEN THE GATE. HERE HE IS, DISTRAUGHT AND WOUNDED AND E
WEARY AND AFRAID HE MIGHT NEVER SEE HIS BROTHER AGAIN, AND THE FATHER THAT’S BEEN ABSENT SO LONG IS SUDDENLY SAYING TO HIM’ YOU AND YOUR BROTHER ARE THE MOST PRECIOUS THINGS IN MY LIFE, LET ME GIVE MY LIFE TO BRING HIM BACK. ’ Because Hohenheim left to protect them , to try and save everyone he loved , because he was afraid of what would happen if ‘Father’ found his weakness . ( don’t touch me , I cry often over poor Hohenheim ) And Ed cries because he’s barely just getting to know his father and his father is proving that he does care.


- That thing he does where he closes his eyes and grins really wide ( not sure if he got it from Ling or not , but I live for this cute habit of his )


- That Mood he gets in whenever somebody is stupid enough to threaten Al


Enemy : Hey uh I’m gonna kidnap your brother

Ed : HOW ABOUT YOU CATCH THESE FISTS INSTEAD

Literally exactly how I get when someone upsets or hurts my siblings


- Super thoughtful of Al and how he feels , especially after Al gets his body back??? Ed mothers Al so much after that and it warms my bitter heart


'Al are you sure you can walk this far ??? You’re still on crutches ’

’ BROTHER I’m FINE.’

’ Did you eat enough ??? Did you eat too much ? Are you sleeping okay ? You look tired , sit down !’

’ BROTHER ’


- Puts other people first a lot


- Even when he’s injured really bad he’s always more worried about someone else I mean ???? ( Hufflepuff Ed FTW )

- Super awkward around Winry whenever she’s fixing up his automail and it’s the cutest thing
Like at one point he flips out because he suddenly becomes intensely aware of Winry holding his automail hand and the fact that he has his shirt off and it’s just a nice reminder that yes , he is indeed 15.


- Probably hasn’t punched everything that’s ever upset Al or Winry but by God he’s TRYING


- Wise ??? He says a lot of really wise things in the manga and I love it

Like when Winry was trying to kill Scar , Ed takes the gun from her hands very gently and slowly and says to her ’ Your hands aren’t meant for hurting people. They’re for helping people live. ’ And that was exactly what she needed to hear at the moment and Ed meant it with all his heart.

- BEST BIG BROTHER TO EVER BIG BROTHER I’M JUST SAYING

Transformers Fanfic Terms 101

So @novelty-spark was asking about a masterpost for those sorts of things, I thought I’d throw down the terms i’ve used in my seasoned time as a TF fic writer. Shoutout to my bae @guttermech for helping with some of these tooooo

So for those who don’t know there’s actually a ton of strange inner-fandom terms and shorthand that’s used in fanfic/general discussions, and can also be used for tags on art. 

First off there’s the different types of TF porn/fic. 

Sticky and PnP/Wireplay are the most common, less common is Sparkplay/Sparkbonding There’s also a now-unheard of fourth type called Tactile/EM fieldplay.

Sticky: Sticky is organic-based sexual organs, with organic genitals. Usually it’s a set of a penis/vagina combo, but there’s lots of different versions. One thing is for sure; it’s messy, it’s slippery, and it’s the most common type of TF porn you’ll find. 

PnP: Short for Plug-N-Play, it’s also sometimes called wireplay, is the counter to Sticky. It’s more based on the passing of electrical currents and information between two cybertronians to bring pleasure to both parties. The fact that it’s also a common phrase for electronics is a hilarious bonus for when you find that shit in public and can laugh about it. 

Sparksex/Sparkplay/Sparkbonding: This is a fairly well recognized but not always utilized form of cybertronian coupling that involves direct interaction between two or more party’s sparks. It’s usually coupled with them becoming bondmates which is a term i’ll cover below in more detail. 

Tactile/EMfieldplay: This is from the olden days, I’ve not seen any content made of this forgotten type in years and years, but now’s a good a time as any for a resurgance. EMfield stands for Electromagnetic Field, which is the sensory net that surrounds a cybertronian. Long ago [before time began…] it was very common for fics to include the fields as a form of close-contact, a field that would become meshed with others when cybertronians were near each other. This type of porn was more closely related to foreplay, though climax could easily be reached by the two [or more!] fields interacting. This one’s pretty complex to explain here, but I think I’ve got the gist of it down. 


Here’s a list of some terms, not all are inherently sexual but are useful to know for the flow of things/knowing the name of some parts of the anatomy and terms: 

Interfacing is sex. It’s just what sex is called, pretty basic. 

cable/cord/plug are the words for a robot penis, however a lot of people call them ‘spikes’ too, which is uncomfortable sounding as hell! Let’s normalize cord/cable/plug =u= I’ve also seen 

Valve is the term used for a penetrable hole, a vagina or butthole or whateverthefuck, it’s also sometimes called a port. 

Anterior/Outernode is a term used for a clitoris, and 

Calipers are the internal structure of a valve/port, similar to the muscle structure inside organic holes to clench/cause a milking action. 

Overload is what an orgasm is called. 

Transfluid is cybertronian ejaculate/jizz. Most artistic renderings have it be glowing like Energon but it can be just about anything you want, I used to write it as silver or different colors, they’re robots, go wild. Glowy jizz or metallic jizz or black inky jizz or just white jizz, who cares! It’s jizz! Have fun! 

CNA  is sometimes used as a version of DNA, often used for when baby Cybertronians are talked about being made through sexual reproduction. On that note- 

Sparklings, are baby cybertronians. Sometimes they’re also called protoforms but more often than not Sparklings is the most accurate way to get it. Protoforms are also a canon material so I don’t know if anyone uses it anymore. I'm not going over different methods of sexual and asexual cybertronian reproduction because that honestly deserves a post all it’s own. 

Glossa is what tongues are called, while 

Coolant is often used as their version of saliva 

servo is used interchangeably for any moving part w/ a joint- legs, arms, fingers, etc [for fingers i would suggest 'digits’ too ] 

Vents are used to describe air flow and to emulate panting/heavy breathing, often used for when a cybertronian starts to get heated and their vents will turn on, expelling hot air. 

Pedes are words used instead of 'feet’

Chevron is the shape that’s on many Cybertronian’s heads, [examples: prowl, ratchet] 

Headfins are another helmet shape, often described as sensitive or an erogenous zone. [examples: sunstreaker, fort max]

Kibble is the name of anything that is not a vital part of the cybertronian’s anatomy but is needed in order to form their alt mode. Examples include tires, headlights, car doors on arms/back. 

Door-wings are pretty self-explanatory, but they are a specific anatomy belonging to the likes of Prowl, Jazz, TFP/Bayverse/RID2015 Bumblebee; they are the doors for their car mode that are perched between the shoulders like wings. 

Audials are used instead of 'ears’, while 

Finials describe a more protruding shape of 'ears’, such as those on Shockwave, Drift, and Wing. 


And as a special added note, here are some Cybertronian curse words often used in fics:

Dross [Damn]

Frag [fuck] fragger, fragging, etc

Scrap [shit]

Slag[aggressive derogatory term, means to call someone scum or garbage]

Feel free to add things! I hope this helps! 8U 

Study tips

It’s midterm, and I’m a freshman and I’m deteriorating, but here’s stuff I’ve learned in the past six week

• don’t study with your phone near you, or lock it somehow. Except!! If you use it to self soothe you aren’t a failure/cheating/whatever if you keep it near you! That’s important to me.

• take screen less breaks (my textbooks r PDF and I need that), take movement breaks, take warm drink breaks. Do something w/ Ur break. And don’t study through your break.

• to do lists are the only reason I didn’t drop out two weeks ago lmao

• if you have lots of courses w/ reading and you find it all difficult or overwhelming break it apart. Write out a system if you need to.

• if you really like reading but your textbooks got you ready to remove your eyeballs then take a break and read something you really like! (Cough cough fanfiction) it really helped me and now I feel like I read faster when I go back to my textbooks.

• I feel v uncomfy at my campus so I do all my studying at home, but when I was in high school I used to stay after and study there and it really helped.

• my dyscalculia friends/ADHD pals - take notes when you’re talking to people or working on large projects because you will lose your thoughts and forget stuff.

• also ADHD/anxiety pals - stimming is good for you especially in 3hr classes. It’s hard cause I get embarrassed abt it but it helps me so much w/ my 3hr class

• don’t let your teachers organize for you. Do it how you need to and don’t apologize

• IF YOU NEED IT, THINK YOU NEED IT, OR NOT SURE IF YOU NEED IT BUT MIGHT, PLS FOR THE LOVE OF THE CREATORS - GO TO THE DISABILITIES OFFICE N GET YOURSELF ACCOMODATION LETTERS/AN ADVOCATE

• speaking of friends, they say if you make friends with professors or talk to them it can really help your grade

• speaking even more on friends, study in groups! Even if you’re just reading textbooks together it helps (“man it must be lonely knowing what you knowwwwww, man it must be lonely, keep it on the lowwwwww”)

• be patient with yourself. It’ll take a while to make it routine.

• if you have to romanticize your studying (I tell myself it’s the “real college experience™”) then do that shit

• rewrite your notes, or re read them. Humans memorize through a three step process, read, reread, and do. That’s what my teacher said at my magnet school lol but it helps 

 • color code notes if that helps. I use sticky notes? Like color codes ones, blue for questions, red for reference/stop points 

 • make a safe space! I use my room. I study on my bed cause I don’t have a desk but I’ve been making my room more me and that helps. 

 • videogame soundtracks. Keep you engaged but don’t distract. If you don’t really like an videogames I suggest the Skyrim atmosphere video, harvest moon soundtrack, and kingdom hearts cause they’re flowy or you can use classical music 

 • some friends like to have tv on? I put NHL on once but I got distracted when players dropped gloves.

Wow this got disorganized.
That’s all my dude. Drink water. Do stuff you love. Learn how to balance. For the first three weeks I didn’t do anything I loves because I didn’t want to lose my focus or whatever and I was two inches from never showing up again. But then I sat my ass down, killed an arch demon, read a book and now I’m feeling better and moving forward.

Close • H.S.

Elton John was playing, my fingers tapping against the side of the tub as my eyes stayed shut and I hummed the lyrics to “Bennie and the Jets” while I laid in the tub full of rose colored water and bubbles. After doing all the laundry, washing all the dishes, and cleaning all the floors in the house I’ve decided I needed a break, a reward for all the hard work. Harry had been out all day, promising to come home from dinner because he was finalizing the set list for the upcoming tour.

Something I wasn’t worried about a bit, knowing that Uni was over and I had the time to spend touring around various countries with my love for months, listening to him perform day after day, something I could watch forever. 

The song soon changed to “Good Grief” by Bastille, the tapping getting faster and the water sloshing around the tub more at the excitement over the song. All the humming, tapping, and water sounds along with the song playing loudly distracted me from the fact the Harry had walked in, setting his phone on the counter before settling down on the toilet seat. 

I opened my eyes, smiling over at him where he sat, lifting an arm to give a little wave before bringing it back to the side of the tub where I drummed my fingers to the beat. “How was it?” I asked with a content smile as I watched him remove hi watch and shoes, placing them next to each other by the cabinets.

“Got it done, f’ th’ most part.” He smiled, his elbows on his knees as he leaned forward to talk better. He looked down at the pink water, my eyes following his and landing on my knee.

“Stop it, haven’t shaved in years,” I over exaggerated, sticking my legs back down into the water so he didn’t have to lay his eyes on my cactus legs a second longer. I watched him roll his eyes and remove himself from the toilet and sit on the edge of the bath, reaching down into the water to grab my leg.

“I love your cactus legs,” He hummed, laughing as he ran a hand up and down my shins, making me giggle and roll my eyes at his weirdness. “Wan’ me to shave ‘em?” He plucked the razor from the organizer and pumped some shaving cream into his hand, taking my shrug as a yes and instantly applying the cream.

“If anyone walked into this they’d think we’re the weirdest couple, absolutely mental we are.” I laughed, watching as he carefully ran the razor down my leg, I smiled, watching the concentration on his face grow as he reached my knee, trying his best not to nick the skin and leave it bleeding.

“Y’know, I’m glad we’re this close,” He mumbled more to himself than out loud, I nodded in agreement. “Imagine if I wa’ grossed ou’ by this!” He snorted, moving onto the second leg and using the same amount of concentration at before.

“Hey, wan’ do this every time? You’re doing well!” I laughed, leaning forward and washing the cream off my legs. “What other boyfriends would do this, thank you, baby.” I leaned up, pressing a kiss to his pink lips, his hand immediately tangling in my wet, knotty hair. You two were so close, however, that he didn’t care.

Prompt: “I’m sorry.  I didn’t mean to.” + “I didn’t mind.”

Word Count: ~2k 

Genre: fluff + college au

Summary: The two of you were volunteers at your university library, and somehow, spending late nights shelving books just lead to several things more. 

AN: ty for the sweet message also um this gif is perfect im-

prompt list :)

Closing your eyes briefly, you sighed inwardly as the boy in front of you tried shoving a book into a shelf that clearly wasn’t supposed to be there. 

“Taehyung, I don’t think that’s where that book goes.” you said gently, although you could feel your patience wearing thin. It was late and you still had to get back to your dorm and study for your political science test you had the next morning, but with Taehyung being a newbie, the librarian had handed the responsibility to you to train him as she claimed to be “too busy”. 

Meaning, she had to go home and feed her several and I mean, several, cats. 

Scratching his head, he looked at you and back at book in his hand, before saying, “I mean, you said I had to organize it alphabetically and the last name is in K so shouldn’t it go in here, since-” 

“Did you read the label to see what type of book it was?” 

A look of realization dawned upon the boy’s face as he flushed a bit when he suddenly gave you a sheepish look, his eyes disappearing into a shy smile that had your heart skipping a beat. Looking away immediately, you shook your head a little, telling yourself the lack of sleep was getting to you. 

“It’s non-fiction.” he admitted, as he rubbed the back of his neck in embarrassment. Although you were tired as hell, your lips gave out in a small smile as you shook your head lightly, a small chuckle slipping past your mouth. As you pushed the cart towards the non-fiction section of the library, you motioned him to follow you, however not going by without noticing the wide grin Taehyung had as he trailed behind you.

College!Jeonghan
  • major: architecture 
  • minor: urban studies 
  • sports: bikes to school since he lives in an off campus dorm, that’s the only sports he’s willing to do
  • clubs: neighborhood cleanup volunteer, part-time travel guide on the weekends 
  • jeonghan’s interest in architecture comes from the fact that he likes to draw but he can’t draw people for anything??? like he wanted to do fine arts but the best portrait he can do is a circle with two dots for eyes??? but when it comes to fine line work and detail WELL THEN 
  • and like he spent most of high school biking to and from school and he still does so in college and whenever he would pass through the streets he’d always admire the buildings and the houses and the array of colors and shapes 
  • his favorite places are churches and museums because there architecture is always the most beautiful and he’ll literally spend hours sitting on the steps outside of them sketching different parts of the structure from different angles and like once he was like “mingyu lets go to the museum!” and mingyu was like yeah sure but then ??? jeonghan just sat himself down in front of the museum and took out this sketchpad and mingyu’s like ??? hyung the arts inside ?? and jeonghan was like NO u fool the art is the building duh 
  • mingyu: ????????????
  • is famous on campus for (his good look obviously) always being on the roof of the art building and sketching up there. people always know that if there’s a figure up there then it’s probably jeonghan
  • is organized and has all his notes color-coded and his pens are organized by like size?? his folders aren’t bent ?? he actually uses his planner ??
  • the only messy thing about him is his bike because it’s old and covered in peeling stickers and sharpie pen like seungcheol scribbled ‘prince jeonghan’ onto the side of the handlebar and jeonghan has tried tirelessly to clean it off but it has been only failure 
  • and although jeonghan is pretty well kept together midterms have a way of making everyone Lose It and although he’s studied and done his best like he’s got a paper on gentrification due for his urban studies minor and then he’s got a presentation in design IV and then blueprints he needs to go over with his professor in landscapes and like
  • he doesn’t notice but he leaves said blueprints beside his bike after he’s done parking it because he’s late to his first period class and like he doesn’t notice at all until he’s having lunch w/seungcheol and josh and he’s like WAIT 
  • oh my god
  • the blueprints
  • seungcheol laughs his butt off because this is the first time he’s ever heard of jeonghan losing anything while joshua tries to calm jeonghan down
  • and tbh this is all a mess but these missing blueprints is how you meet jeonghan
  • see you’re also biking to and from school and as you’re chaining your bike up you notice this really big bundle of sketches just laying on the floor and you’re like “one of those frenzied art students must of left that here.” so you go and pick it up with the intention of dropping it off at the art department when you notice that like the drawings aren’t like portraits or contemporary art 
  • they’re plans for a building including the drawings and measurements of the structure and you’re like ??? this is too much math and numbers for this to be an art students
  • so you’re like ok this is probably an architecture majors project but since you don’t even know where the department for that is you turn to the one person you trust will have answers: lee seokmin. because he knows everything and everyone
  • and so you find him outside lab and you’re like “seokmin!!! i found these out in the parking lot near the bike racks, do you know whose it is??” and you unroll the sketches and seokmins like hmmm bikes + blueprints hmmmmmm and then he snaps his fingers like “it probably belongs to jeonghan!!!! he’s a really handsome hyung of mine, shoulder length hair, nice voice you can find him on the roof of the art building!!” and you’re like ok that’s…..more info than necessary but thank u seokmin ur the best
  • and so you get to the art building and climb up like 15 flights of stairs and when you open the door to the roof you’re surprised but happy to see that there is a person there
  • and he’s like sitting near the ledge and he’s got his bag next to him and his side profile against the backdrop of the sky looks like it’s shining??? and like he’s just standing there looking over at the campus below but for some reason you find yourself just frozen??? because it looks like a scene out of a movie like seokmin had said he was handsome but the person in front of you is like ????? a real life angel
  • you try to clear your throat to get his attention, but instead you end up dropping the blueprints and they like scatter around you and you’re like goOD JOB embaRRASSING yourself my dude
  • and jeonghan turns around and sees you there and you’re like trying to pick up the sketches and the wind gets one and you’re chasing it and jeonghan is like ?????? and you’re like “heY Hi you don’t know me bUT i think these belong to you??” and you manage to get them all back together and you hand them to jeonghan
  • and like he looks them over and you can see his eyes widen and a smile appear on his face and wow did cupid just shoot you with his bow and arrow because that’s what looking at this boys smile feels like
  • and he looks at you like “you don’t know how much this means to me that you found these!! there’s over 45 hours of work in them!!” and like his eyes are this warm brown and you’re like oH it’s no BIG DEAL haha HAHa 
  • but then he puts the sketches down and asks how he can repay you and you’re like no no no it’s fine!!!! and you try to look around and you’re like “by the way, i hear you’re always up here, why?” and jeonghan shrugs and he’s like “because the view is nice, i see all the details.”
  • he like walks over to the ledge and waves for you to come over and he like points to the buildings and he’s like “from this angle i can see how the building looks from different points of view. it’s easier to sketch something and understand it if you see every side.”
  • and you’re like ok that’s somehow so inspiring and deep and jeonghan starts talking about the history of the campus’s architecture and like you’ve never been interested but his voice and his passion comes through so you can’t help but be entranced 
  • at some point you’re like ‘wow seokmin was right, you are handsome” and jeonghans like hmm??? and you’re like nOThing no  th i ng …..
  • but your conversation comes to an end when jeonghan’s like “i gotta go hand in these blueprints, again i don’t know how to repay you.” and you’re like seriously!! it’s ok, this was fun - i learned a lot from you!!
  • and jeonghan stands there for a moment with his bag over his shoulder and the blueprints in his hand looking at you and you get all nervous because the sun is setting and u two are on a roof this is like romantic but like u just met and jeonghan seems to realized that as well because he takes a step back and is like a little stuttery as he says goodbye
  • and he disappears down the stairs and you’re on the roof by yourself and like this feeling of butterflies fluttering is in your stomach and you’re just like ,,,,,, what is this
  • you and jeonghan don’t cross paths for a week and like you kind of expected this like all you did was help him out that doesn’t entitle him to want to be your friend or whatever and like you go on w ur life 
  • and one day your bike gets a flat tire and so u can’t use it to get to ur job and so u have to work when you get off your shift and it’s pretty dark since it’s past 9 but like you just clutch your books and keep walking
  • until suddenly there’s someone ringing their bike bell at you and you’re like ???? and you turn to see jeonghan coming to a stop on his bike near the sidewalk and he’s like “hey, what are you doing out so late?” and you’re like “just came from work!! my bikes useless with a flat so i have to walk to the dorms.” and jeonghan frowns and checks his watch like “it’s super late, let me give you a ride.” and you like look at him and then at his bike and you’re like “……..where would i sit?”
  • jeonghan just grins and motions for you to pass him your books and he puts them into his backpack and then is like “on my handlebars.”
  • and you’re like ahfiowhofwo jeOnghan how will you see?? what if i break the bike??? this is dang-
  • but jeonghan reaches out and gently takes your hand to pull you closer and he’s like “don’t worry, just take a seat and ill take care of you!”
  • and you’re still a little anxious but you do your best to hop on and you hear jeonghan ask against your ear if you’re comfortable and you nod and he starts peddling and you’re like oh my god Oh My God OH MY-
  • and surprisingly he’s going along smoothly and the wind is blowing through your hair and at some point your nervousness melts and you’re smiling and giggling and jeonghan is like “is it fun??” and you’re like “yeah!!”
  • the ride isn’t a long one, it’s about fifteen minutes to the dorms and when you get there you don’t want to get off because it was so nice and peaceful having him bike you through the cool night air and whenever he’d speak it was warm against your ear but all good things come to an end and you hop off and jeonghan passes you your books and you’re like !!! thank you and he’s like consider this repayment for you helping me out w/ my blueprints (-:
  • and once again you and jeonghan find yourself silently looking at one and other and it’s like,,,,,,,,,,,,just do it. just kiss each other
  • bUT once again jeonghan looks away and chuckles a bit awkwardly and is like “hey, if you ever want to hangout or something - you know where to find me.” and you’re like aHH yes!! and before he leaves he’s like “it’s chilly tonight and you know the dorms never turn the heat on so take this-” 
  • and he gets off his bike and shrugs off the cardigan he’s wearing and like drapes it over your shoulders and you’re like “i can’t take th-” and he’s like “don’t worry. stay warm.” and he smiles and oh god you’re literally going to turn into jelly right here 
  • you watch as he rides off and you wrap the cardigan tighter around you and try not to smile like an idiot while jeonghan turns the block and almost yells out into the wind because as calm and collected as he can come off he’s just as nervous around you as you are around him because god you’re cute and he just needs to muster up the courage and kiss you liKE
  • you think about how jeonghan said you know where to find him so a couple of days later you buy some sandwiches and fresh fruit and climb the stairs of the art building and as expected jeonghan is there but ??? he’s laying down on this blanket and he looks like he’s asleep and you quietly make your way over
  • and he literally looks so angelic and pure laying there, hair splayed out under him, lips slightly parted and you sit down beside him and like you don’t want to wake him up that’d be rude so you just think you’ll sit here for a bit and watch the sky but then like you end up laying down and soon enough,,,,,,,,,,,,you’re asleep too
  • waking up you feel your head pressed against someone warm and when you sit up you feel jeonghan’s hand drop from around your waist and he smiles at you but you can see the pink tint on his cheeks and you’re like ,,,,,,,,,,,,,oh my did i ??? fall asleep too??? and he chuckles like yeah you did!! and automatically you bow your head like im sorry!! but jeonghan lifts your chin and is like “you’re cute when you’re sleeping.”
  • and this time the silence between you is ended with him leaning in and placing his hand on the back of your neck to pull you softly toward him and the kiss is……….just as sweet and soft as this whole situation and it’s perfect
  • and jeonghan pulls back but his hand lingers on your neck before his fingers tread down to from your neck to your back and you just
  • lean down and kiss him again, but this time with a bit more passion and jeonghan just laughs as he pulls you ontop of him
  • and it’s cute your first kiss and first date is up on the rooftop and you guys share the food you brought and jeonghan spends the time listening to you talk about your interests and he shows you his sketch book of different buildings around seoul and his studies on the architecture of churches in italy and france
  • and it’s just beautiful being there with him 
  • once seokmin finds out you’re dating jeonghan he’s like “the reason you two lovebirds found each other is because of me you know!! you should repay me with buying me lunch” and you and jeonghan are like rolling your eyes but agree because why not
  • seungcheol finds out and he literally grabs you and jeonghan together at the same time and spins you two around and you’re both like sEungchEOl and he’s like YOU GUYS IM SO HAPPY FOR YOU BOTH ,,,,, like he gets more emotionally than necessary but that’s because jeonghan is his best bud and he’s so happy to see jeonghan has found someone as nice and as good to him as you
  • you and jeonghan bike together to school like you meet up outside the dorms and jeonghan leans over to kiss you good morning and you help each other fasten your helmets and it’s the cutest thing ever
  • sometimes you’ll race to see who gets to campus first but jeonghan always lets you win and you’re like sTop doing that let’s do it fairly and jeonghan’s like “i would, but you look so cute when you win and get all giddy???” and you’re like shU S H……..
  • aside from the top of the art building you find jeonghan napping in the library, the campus cafe, the common room of his dorm, the common room of your dorm, study hall and you’re always like how can he sleep so much
  • but then you settle in beside him and like at first you’re reading your notes or studying but then he’s so warm and he’s cuddling his head into your neck that you also knock out and joshua or minghao finds you guys and has to shake you two awake
  • there’s a freshman named dino who jeonghan is really protective over and dino’s always like @ you like pls help me jeonghan texts me 500 times a day to ask how i am and it’s sweet but ,,,,,,,,,why and you’re like sorry dino you’re like his son now and dino sighs and he’s like “does that mean im your son too?” and you’re like asifdhw and jeonghan is like yes that’s exactly what it means - exchange numbers this is a family now LMAO
  • jeonghan isn’t a big party person but seungcheol goes to a lot of them so you two get invited and once there was a karaoke machine and that was the night you learned that jeonghan knows all the lyrics to every beyonce song ever released and wow he can SING 
  • jeonghan: seungcheol you didn’t record me singing right?
  • seungcheol: nah bro u know i would don’t that
  • you: it’s ok i recorded it
  • jeonghan: HOW COULD YOU
  • you: SWEET SWEET BLACKMAIL
  • but then you learn jeonghan can hold a grudge till the end of eternity so you delete the video LOL 
  • watching him draw out plans is one of your favorite things because his determined face is so handsome and he’s so hardworking and you just think he really fits that artist look and like he looks so good with his glasses on and his hair up in a lil ponytail
  • you love tying the ponytails for him and fixing the strands that fall out
  • but when you do, jeonghan just wraps his arms around your waist and moves you toward his bed like “let’s sleep……….well kiss and stuff first and then sleep…….”
  • does this thing where he’ll hold you from behind and kiss your neck and then wander off like he just didn’t do that and you’re like jeonghan come back here and he’s like hmmmmmmm
  • soft long romantic kisses that’s jeonghan’s game my dude RIP YOU
  • you’ll go with him to volunteer in the neighborhood clean up and the adults that run it love you two they think you’re the cutest and they’re like “you two just need to get married!!!!” and jeonghan is like woAH and you’re like We’re IN COLLEGe but the adults are like “imagine what a cute family they’d be aWWWW” and you and jeonghan are basically two embarrassed messes
  • jeonghan knows so much about the neighborhood and about korea in general that he’s always telling you things you don’t know and like it’s never because he’s trying to come of sounding smarter than you he’s just genuinely interested in telling you and you love hearing it and you’re always just like “you should become a teacher, you’re so intelligent” and jeonghan’s like “i couldn’t be a teacher, school starts too early and i love sleep”
  • jeonghan’s dorm walls used be covered with blueprints and photos of the massive churches of europe but now he’s got photos of the two of you hanging up and like when he’s pulling an all nighter to get his drawings done he’ll look at the photo of you smiling and it just gives him strength
  • you and jeonghan spend countless hours talking about all the places in the world you want to see and he’s just laying in your lap as you run your fingers through his hair and he’s like “i want to see all of these places, but seeing them with you would make it even better.”
  • as a gift for your first anniversary you save up enough money to buy jeonghan a new bike that doesn’t say “prince jeonghan” on it and jeonghan nearly gets on his hands and knees to thank you but seungcheol is like jUST wait ill write something else
  • he does. he writes your name + a heart + jeonghans name under the seat and jeonghan’s like you know what,,,,im not mad,,,,,,i think it’s cute
  • instead of just jeonghan being known for hanging up on the art buildings roof, now everyone knows that that’s where they can find you. you guys are the ‘art building roof’ couple LOL
  • ok but biking with jeonghan by the han river or by the beach and then stopping to admire the view but when you turn around jeonghans looking at you and leans in to kiss you and it’s SOFT

so….been a while, huh?

i just wanted to say that french paparazzi laws are totally different from this fic. they’re actually incredibly strict, and the way the paparazzi in this fic act is more similar to the us, but still possibly kind of extreme? i probably should’ve googled that before using it as a plot point, but i didn’t, and now it’s a fairly major one, so i won’t be going back and changing. i apologize for the inaccuracies!

shoutout to @reyxa​ for helping me with parts of this chapter and also thank you to everyone who hopped on when i was streaming! it was really fun and if people are interested, i’ll probably do it again!

enjoy!


Adrien rests his forehead on the glass of his window and stares at the darkened city below him. He needs to move on with his life, but he can’t. Not yet. For now, he just needs to process this new information.

Sonic 25th anniversary art book review

Hey guys, it’s Shadow. I bought this book. And I’m really emotional about it.

This review will feature a lot of pictures to prove my points.

TLDR; Don’t buy the book. Just ask me if you want a picture of anything. I believe other ppl already made scans of the good pages but If you want me to I can make scans of the few pages that atually do have concept art.

edit: you can buy the book ofc i just think its not worth it, mostly when you are poor as fuck like me and u go in for an investment. (though it would help maybe getting another, better one? I’m kinda conflicted here)

Onto the review:

Fist of all: this book is bigger than you think.

This is an intuos pen&touch small as size ref

F  A  V  O  R  I  T  E  S  

I have finally got around to making this ridiculously long list of my favorite products that I use pretty much every day! I gave as much detail as I thought fit for each product and included various pros and cons.

cosmog’s fashion shopping guide

ITS ARI!! ive been wanting to share my stores n tips for a while so… here goes. if u want more stuff lmk tho! these rnt all of my links (i left out all of my accessory+bags+jewelry+make-up stores especially so i might make a separate post 4 those) and i can give recs for specific styles/looks/items/budgets/etc bc i have a place(s)…..4 everythinggg

tips:

  • make an amazon wishlist (or a few!) to organize what u want. get the browser extension tht lets u add from websites other than amazon!
  • read reviews and customer feedback if theyre available to u!!! i literally……dont even consider buying something online w/o reading reviews if im unsure tbh. theyre rlly helpful.
  • be wary of buying rly cheap clothes on sites like amazon, sheinside, and choies, theyre often pretty bad quality and not what is advertised. ive been burnt before and trust me its better to get something better quality than to get something u can never wear bc it isnt made right!
  • consider basics first! think abt some pieces that are going to be the lynchpin of your wardrobe. u can pair more out-there pieces w/ them and theyll give your looks more versatility in what u can make!
  • good colors for basics are neutrals and a bit of colors you plan to wear a lot of.
  • thrifting is….so good if ur on a budget and even if ur not!!! u can find so much in thrift stores…..go thrifting
  • dont trust letter sizes. take your bust, waist, and hip measurements, and use every store’s individual size chart!
  • if youre debating between getting something a size smaller or a size larger, always go larger
    if u have a tailor available to u make use of them!! if u have a garment that u love but it doesnt fit u quite right u dont have to send it back!
  • make outfits while u shop! dont just buy pieces by themselves unless its something ur specifically looking for
  • if u have nowhere to start look at a store’s lookbooks, new in, and bestsellers
  • some websites also have features where u can shop the entire look the pictured model is wearing, or looks from their instagram, which i <3 to utilize!!!
  • take inspo from celebrities, instagrammers, and models! a rlly good way to get started is recreating looks uve seen before, esp if u have no idea what youre going for with a new outfit! 
  • i have an outfit curating instagram @stylegrinch and u can also find me on polyvore @solgaleo !
  • speaking of polyvore, its a really cool site for curating items and stuff into outfits!
  • use the extension honey to get huge discounts on most online stores!! it searches for all available coupons for u and stacks them if it can.

key:

  • $ = mass market (forever 21, h&m, etc)
  • $$ = contemporary (urban outfitters, topshop, etc)
  • $$$ = designer (michael kors, etc)
  • $$$$ = haute couture (versace, oscar de la renta, etc)
  • favorites are italicized! 

price marks are dependent on what is being sold; a price mark for a store selling glasses for $100 will be different than a store selling a romper for $100.

56 things I learned in my first year of highschool

Guys, tomorrow I start school, and in honor of that, I decided to post 56 things I learned as a freshman. And for anyone that’s going to start school soon, some of these will be helpful. So here ya go- I really hope this helps! Let me know if it does!! Also sorry for such a lengthy post, I know it’s unlike me to put up long posts.

—–

- always carry extras. Whether it be pens, tampons, paper, anything. Carry extras. (Guys- don’t be afraid to carry tampons or pads either! There is a boy I go to school with that only asked for tampons for his birthday. Whenever a girl needs one and her friends don’t have any, they can always go to this kid. He always has one in his bag. It’s very helpful)

- take pictures, take a LOT of pictures.

- even if you don’t like sports, go to the homecoming game.

- get close to at least one teacher a year.

- if you don’t buy a yearbook, you can get your friends to sign a notebook

- Do NOT skip pages in your notebooks. Do not. If you just flip to s random page, you’ll run out quicker. Go page by page, and don’t be afraid to have multiple subjects in your notebook

- if you don’t have a planner you can text the homework to yourself.

- the guidance counselor is there to help

- be close with your friends. Make sure you all know you love each other.

- care for your friends. Become their second family. Make sure they can depend on you, and make sure they’re eating and sleeping.

- you are never too busy to make sure your friends are okay.

- genuinely ask people how their day is going. Tell them to have a good day.

- be kind to everyone and never have prejudice.

- you don’t need to write every word on the slide.

- color code your notes. Make the headings and the actual notes different colors.

- mechanical pencils last longer

- flash cards work wonders.

- study and do your homework. Read the assigned reading. Re-read through your notes at home. Quiz yourself. Quiz your friends. Make sure you know. Your. Shit.

- always carry mints and/or gum

- you get three to five mental health days Lee semester; make them count.

- if you’re feeling too stressed to study or you can’t focus, don’t study. Wait a bit. Watch a YouTube video, grab a bottle of water, eat something, then get back to work.

- peppermints stimulate the brain, so have a peppermint mint before a test.

- do not underestimate then power of sleep. While all nighters are fantastic ideas, sleeping will help you do well on your test as well.

- don’t lie to people

- try to not get on your phone during class

- respect substitute teachers, and don’t be a dick.

- smile at people, and smile at your teachers.

- Great first impressions can last a lifetime! Always, always try to make good first impressions on people; you kilt need them for a job reference later in life, and it’s good to be nice to people anyway.

- you’ll probably make friends in other grades.

- make at least one friend in every class.

- don’t be bashful when bringing in your morning coffee or tea. Drink it proudly.

- if you feel good wearing it, fuck what everyone else thinks.

- lots of girls do their makeup in the bathroom before school.

- if you’re close enough, your friends will go to the bathroom. (My best friend is a cis male, and I still have to use the female bathrooms. We are close enough that he waits outside he bathroom for me, and vice versa)

- laugh at people’s jokes

- the secret to writing thesis statements in an argumentative essay:
“Despite the fact that some people* (historians, scientists, etc.) believe X* (counterclaim), Y* (topic sentence/stance on topic.)” DO NOT STATE YOUR SPECIFIC REASONS. DO NOT SAY YOU. DO NOT SAY VERY.

- PLEASE try to go out with your friends as often as you can. As much fun as binging Netflix is, going out with your friends is much more fun than watching Friends for six hours, okay? Make memories.

- take your notes in pen, not pencil. If you make a mistake, just scribble it out and keep writing. Also, your writing won’t rub off. (I like flair pens the best. Absolute favorite.)

- use college ruled paper. Seriously.

-stay organized. Seriously.

-it’s better to regret doing something than not doing it.

-always attempt at something. Getting a 50% is better than getting a 0%

-failing a class is not the end of the world, but that isn’t an excuse to do it. Always put your best effort into it.

-you will never feel more motivated than you do in the first few days in school. Try to call back that feeling around the middle and end of the year.

-keep study guides, old worksheets, and tests. You can use these to study for MidTerm Exams, Finals, or even Standardized Testing.

-reorganize your backpack during Christmas break and spring break. Throw out any old papers you don’t need.

-you don’t actually have to read the syllabus.

-if your friend offers you lunch, even if it’s off campus, you should say yes. It’s really fun.

-try to keep up with those healthy habits. Drink water, exercise, etc. Do what you have to do.

-don’t overwhelm yourself. If your workload is feeling too heavy, take a break. And your friends and he guidance counselor are there to make your life easier; you can depend on them.

-it’s never too early to start thinking about colleges and careers.

-colleges often consider freshman year the most important year of all of highschool. You have a better chance of getting into colleges with a good freshman year.

-take advantage of opportunities to study, especially with the teacher.

-buy the books you need for English class. You can mark in the text this way, and you can take it home to re-read. Or, if you don’t want to write in the book itself, you can use sticky notes.

-SparkNotes are fucking great and super fucking helpful

-SparkNotes actually self physical books! If you’re doing Shakespeare, go to Amazon and order one of these SparkNotes books. Not only does it have the ordinal text and lots of room to make the text, it had a translation to modernized English and explanations on what Shakespeare was saying! It’s very helpful.

-you’ve got this. Whether it be a test, a class you think is hard, making new friends, whatever it is. You’ve got this shit d o w n. You can do it! I believe in you. Go out there and kick ass.

Yamaguchi Tadashi - Tutor

I’m at my convention so I can’t finish requests, but here’s an old Yams story I made!

I’m on my phone so the format is weird!
———–

“Uwaah! I get it now!” Hinata shouts from inside a classroom as he was getting tutored, along with Kageyama. “Hey! you’re too loud dumbass!”

Outside the classroom, Yamaguchi and Tsukishima stopped in their tracks as they heard the duo yelling. Smirking, Tsukishima walked toward the classroom doors.

Yamaguchi’s eyes widened as Tsukishima opened the doors. “Tsukki, what are you doing? This isn’t our class.”

“I’m just making a quick stop to go make fun of the poor boys getting tutored.” Tsukishima sneered as he walked inside the classroom, Yamaguchi following. “Aww, look at this precious moment. You guys are finally getting something into your brains.”

Tsukishima snickered as Hinata and Kageyama glared at him. Hinata crossed his arms at the tall blonde. “We’re just lucky to have (L/N)-san tutor us!”

You smiled at the two as you began to organize all your notes and assignments. “I’m glad I could help you two. I don’t think I’m that good at teaching others.” You said with a nice smile and laugh.

Hearing an unfamiliar voice, Yamaguchi turned to look at you. His cheeks became rosy as he noticed how pretty you looked. Your (Hair Color) hair framed your face and made you look absolutely gorgeous.

“I thought Yachi was teaching the two of you?” Yamaguchi asked as you looked at him and answered his question. “Oh, she was but something came up so she asked me if I could help Hinata-kun and Kageyama-kun.”

“You’re a really good teacher! You should help us more often! Not saying that Yachi isn’t good or anything.” Smiling at Hinata’s words, you nodded. “I don’t mind.”

As the days go by, Yamaguchi seemed to notice you more and more. He would sometimes even see you at practice when you’d drop Yachi off at the gym doors before heading into the library to study. Yamaguchi has always wanted to talk to you, but he’d always be too shy too.

He knew that the only way that he could talk to you would be asking for help. Walking into your classroom; 1-5 ; he scanned the room and when he saw you Yamaguchi carefully made his way towards your desk.

“H-hey (L/N)-san,” Looking up, you smiled at the young man and waved. “Hello~” His heart began beating furiously from your simple ‘hello’.

“U-um, I was wondering if you could help me with this problem.” Placing his notebook down on your desk, you leaned over to look over the question before you smiled and nodded at him.

“Sure! Here, grab a chair and sit next to me so I can explain this to you.” Nodding, Yamaguchi pulled up a chair and sat next to the first year girl as she explained the problem to him. He loved to listen to her voice, it was so soothing to him.

As Tsukishima walked to his classroom, he heard Yamaguchi’s voice from the 1-4 classroom. Peeking inside, he smirked when he saw him talking to you. “Oh my, Yamaguchi.” Chuckling, he walked away to his classroom.

When Yamaguchi came back to his classroom, Tsukishima glanced at the male before asking him a question.

“Where were you?” He asked a glimmer in his eyes.

Yamaguchi stiffened as he sat down next to the blonde. “O-oh! I just went to ask (L/N)-san a few questions about the lesson we learned.” Tsukishima placed his head in his arms as he grinned at the boy.

-

“Good afternoon Yamaguchi-kun.” You greeted as Yamaguchi came and sat next to you with his notebooks placed on your desks. “Good afternoon (L/N)-san.”

Throughout the week, you’ve seen to become very fond of Yamaguchi. He was really nice, sweet, and caring towards you. Whenever you’d see him, you became happier.

“Can you help me with this?” Yamaguchi pointed to a problem and you nodded at him.

“You should understand this one really quick, it’s not hard. First you-”

“Oh, there you are Yamaguchi.” Yamaguchi jumped at the sound of Tsukishima’s voice. Turning his head, he watched as the tall blonde walked over to him with a paper in his hand. “I’ve been wondering where you’ve gone.”

“Hi Tsukishima-kun.” Tsukishima looked over at you and arched a brow. “Oh (L/N)-chan, are you tutoring Yamaguchi?”

“Yep, I tutor him everyday kinda. I don’t mind it though.” You respond looking up at the tall male.

“Hmm, I wonder why though?” Tsukishima placed the paper in front of you and your eyes widened. “Yamaguchi seemed to have gotten a perfect mark on his test. It doesn’t look like he needs any help.”

You looked at the worksheet and noticed that all his work was correct and he seemed to understand it perfectly.

“You seem to understand this pretty well Yamaguchi-kun..”

“A-ah well, I just wanted extra help.” Yamaguchi responded as he placed his hand on the back of his neck.

“Whatever you say. I’m going back to class.” Tsukishima turned around and walked out of the class, sliding the door closed behind him.

Yamaguchi held his head down as you looked at him, confused. “Yamaguchi-kun, you don’t actually need help do you?”

“Well…no I don’t need help. I..I just wanted an excuse to come talk to you.” You blushed at his words. “You’re such a nice and pretty girl. I just wanted to talk to you.”

“You know you could’ve just asked me.” You replied with a smile. Yamaguchi looked at you and averted his eyes. “I know, but it’s kinda hard.”

“It’s okay. You can come talk to me anytime, I think you’re a really nice and cute guys too.” You let out a small laugh as Yamaguchi turned red from your response.

“I’ve actually seen you practice volleyball a little bit when I drop Yachi off. You’re pretty good.” Yamaguchi smiled at your compliment. He looked at you again, trying to get the right words out.

“I-if you’d like, you could come inside and watch sometime.”

“Really? I’ll come with Yachi sometime soon then~” You rest your cheek on your palm as you and Yamaguchi began a normal conversation.

Extra~

“So, you and (L/N) huh?” Tsukishima stated as bounced the volleyball at practice.

Yamaguchi’s mouth opened as he began to blush. “W-we’re not dating!”

“Not yet~” He teased as Yamaguchi became a blushing mess.

Gaius/Leo C-S Suports

Written by @jennthejailed


C SUPPORT

Gaius: Hey, Doc. Got a minute?

Leo: … Excuse me?

Gaius: I said hello? It’s a greeting, big guy. I know you’re royalty and all, but-

Leo: Couldn’t you be a bit more tasteful? I thought you were better than this.

Gaius: Tasteful, huh? You’re pretty and all, Doc, but I didn’t think you were interested.

Leo: Wait, no- not like that!

Leo: *sigh *

Leo: You’re under the Ylissean prince’s direct command, correct? I’d have thought you would have learned something from him by now.

Gaius: Ah, you princely types are all the same. Blue’s a good guy, doesn’t make a tiger change his stripes.

Gaius: I’ll catch you later, Doc. Guess you’re a bit busy now.

Leo: Gaius, wait!

Leo: … and he’s gone. I wonder what he actually needed?

[Gaius and Leo have reached support rank C.]


B SUPPORT

Leo: Ah, there you are, Gaius. I’ve been looking all over for you.

Gaius: Have you really? Mighty kind of you, Doc. What can I do for you?

Leo: It’s not what I need. I feel the last time we spoke, I drove you off when you needed something.

Leo: Would you mind terribly continuing your request? I feel rather bad about ignoring you.

Gaius: Oh, that? Don’t worry about it, big guy. It’s in the past now.

Gaius: How about we chat while I’ve got you here?

Leo: Chat? W-well.. I suppose I could do that.

Leo: I am rather curious as to why you became a thief.

Gaius: Ah, a fun story! Most people thought I was a kid who grew up in the slums, but I actually came from a pretty well-to-do family.

Leo: You don’t say? What happened?

Gaius: Well, I’ve got a pretty strong moral code-

Leo: You’re a thief. I’ll take that with a grain of salt.

Gaius: -so if I saw something that made me uncomfortable, I’d be bothered by it all day.

Gaius: I was about 10, and I was walking around the town when I saw a little girl crying.

Gaius: She couldn’t have been older than 6.

Leo: Why was she upset?

Gaius: I’m getting there, Doc. She told me a bigger kid had stolen her scarf from her, and it was the last thing she had from her dead mother.

Gaius: I decided I’d get it back for her, and I saw it sticking out of his back pocket like a prize flag.

Gaius: I fully intended to talk to the guy and convince him to give it back, but before I knew it, the scarf was in my hands and the big lug was none the wiser.

Leo: Ah, your first crime. A noble purpose, though- commendable, even. I’m impressed.

Gaius: She was so happy to get that back, but I was preoccupied by the.. I guess tingling in my fingers? It just felt… right, somehow.

Gaius: I was hooked, and it became a hobby of mine, which evolved into the roguishly handsome thief you see before you today.

Leo: Quite the tale, Gaius.

Leo: (Maybe he’s not that bad, after all.)

[Gaius and Leo have reached support rank B.]


A SUPPORT

Gaius: Hey, Doc! You look pretty busy.

Leo: You could say that. With the influx of new Heroes, Kiran, Robin, and I have been running ourselves ragged trying to keep everything organized.

Gaius: That’s mighty impressive, big guy. I knew you were smart, but I didn’t realize how smart.

Leo: No need to flatter me. I’m simply doing what is asked of me to the best of my abilities.

Gaius: It’s not flattery if it’s true, Doc. Flattery would be pointing out how nicely your collar looks when it’s turned the right way around, or how-

Leo: Is it backwards again?!

Gaius: *laughter*

Gaius: I could tell you, but that would ruin the fun, Doc! Besides, red’s a good color on you.

Leo: .. Did you need something, Gaius?

Gaius: Actually, I did. I figured you could use one, since it’s getting colder.

Leo: A scarf? Gaius, it’s quite lovely. But I couldn’t accept something so nice from you.

Leo: Who knows where you could have gotten it, after all.

Gaius: … Actually, I made that. No underhanded tricks this time.

Leo: Oh. I… I apologize.

Leo: I suppose I jumped to conclusions a bit. I do hope you’ll forgive me.

Gaius: All is forgiven, Doc. Just.. turn your collar around, and you’ll be right as rain.

Gaius: It’ll show off your scarf better that way.

Leo: It is backwards! *laughter* You scoundrel!

Gaius: (Kind of glad the scarf is red. It looks better that way.)

[Gaius and Leo have reached support rank A.]


S SUPPORT

Leo: Gaius. I was wondering where you’d gone off to after that last fight.

Leo: I was… worried.

Gaius: About lil old me? Doc, you’re too kind.

Gaius: I’ll come back in a bit, I promise- I could just use some fresh air.

Leo: I think I could, as well. Do you mind if I join you?

Gaius: Not at all.

Leo: I’ve been meaning to talk to you for some time now.

Gaius: What a coincidence, Doc! I’ve been wanting to chat for a bit, too. Although I could have used some more prep time.

Leo: What on earth do you mean?

Gaius: Well… this, if I’m being honest.

Leo: A ring? Gaius, did you make this as well? The carnelian is beautiful against.. is that redheart?

Gaius: It is, and I did. Once again, you’re smarter than you give yourself credit for.

Leo: Then I hope my intuition is correct as well.. Here.

Gaius: Now, here I was hoping I’d get to propose first, and here we are, doing it at the same time.

Leo: I’m glad you feel the same way I do.. I was afraid you thought me too cold.

Gaius: I kind of figured the scarf fixed that, Doc.

Leo: *laughs* Gaius! Be serious!

Gaius: *chuckles* See? You’re not cold. You’re just rusty on the edges.. It’s cute.

Leo: Oh, Gaius. The truth is, spending all this time with you has made me realize..

Leo: Maybe I’m not as bad as I thought, if someone like you could fall in love with me.

Gaius: I’m no better than you, Doc. But I’ll spend the rest of my life telling you how amazing you are.

Gaius: You deserve that much, at least.

Leo: And I will support you to the fullest extent that I am able, Gaius.

Leo: .. So long as you keep your hands where they belong.

Gaius: Not even… here? *tickles*

Leo: * laughing* GAIUS!!
