I remember it like it was yesterday, although it was decades ago.
My sister and I had been fighting again, like we did so often, like I suspect most sisters do at that age.
This fight got more heated than usual. I screamed an obscenity at my sister before turning to storm out of the room, but then my neck suddenly whipped back painfully and I realised she was yanking my hair. In pain and shock, I spun around and slapped her hard across the face.
Hello! I'd like to make a request, but I'm not sure how you'd write it. Could you do the RFA+ Saeran reacting to if they were getting hot and heavy with MC and another member walked in on them? Thank you so much!
i added V because why not and thank you for the request !1!1
mucho love ೃ༄*
sorry some are longer than others i suck

♥ He begged you to go to a LOLOL convention for weeks and finally you gave in
♥ After hours of walking around you grew bored and horny
♥ Last night he left you on edge as you were about to climax when an important RFA conference call came up
♥ You’ve been edgy ever since
♥ “Please…“ you begged into his ear. For the past thirty minutes you wanted to run off somewhere
♥ Finally he listened
♥ “Couldn’t wait till we got home?”
♥ He’d try so hard to take control of the kisses it’d turn you on more, but this poor baby couldn’t keep up
♥Messy neck kisses
♥His wandering hands finally get into your pants and past your panties
♥Trying to moan his name but can’t even speak making him almost self destruct
♥"I’m so close.”
♥ Just as you were tipping over the edge, the door swings open revealing a red head
♥"There you guys are- AAAH MY BEAUTIFUL EYES” Seven plays LOLOL too. Seven wanted to meet up with you guys when he found out you both were going.
♥Seven runs away red as his hair leaving Yoosung more embarrassed than you
♥Still not satisfied till you get home where he makes up it up to you four times
♥ Zen wanted practice for his romantic lines and wanted it with you so he could make the story come to life, you of course agree
♥ “If you want me then why are you with him?” He says his line leaning closer and closer
♥ Kissing soon leads into make out session in his dressing room
♥ He sits back on the couch and pulls you on top him
♥ Feeling the beast underneath you makes you a mess
♥ Zen grips your waist and helps you grind down on him causing little moans to emanate from you
♥ “I can’t take this…” beast unleashed He groans before flipping you underneath him and grinds hard and fast, hard for you to keep up with
♥ “Ah Hyun~” fuck he gone
♥ This would’ve been a good time to remember Jaehee was stopping by for Zen to sign her new CD
♥ “Hello Zen?” Jaehee’s eyes widen in horror, “SORRY Y/N, Zen!” Before running away flustered
♥ Later, she’d scold you both for being reckless of his image.
♥Knowing Jaehee better than anyone, you know her schedule is so hectic because someone *cough* mista trustfundkid *cough* who gives her useless projects all the time so you decided to bring her lunch knowing she’d forget to eat
♥ She’d be very surprised and happy and try to explain her current project leaving you confused as ever
♥ She’d try so hard to make you understand
♥ You’re leaning over the papers and get distracted on her lips rather than the cat project she was rattling off about
♥ Swoop, you kiss, taking Jaehee off guard
♥ Kisses so good she forgets where she is
♥ You unbutton her blouse and leave hickeys across her chest
♥ Small Jaehee moans
♥Fogged up glasses
♥ “Jaehee do you have those cat reports I was, Oh,” Jumin stops, “I’ll come back later…”
♥ Jaehee is s u p e r embarrassed
♥ “I’m so unprofessional.”
♥ You apologize with a bubble bath later
♥ Jumin would randomly want to throw dinner parties for friends and colleagues
♥ Tonight was one of those nights
♥ You were trying on dresses for it when you put on a beautiful slim fitting, maroon dress that made you look hotter than hell.
♥ “No.” You hear Jumin and see him shaking his head is disapproval
♥ “What’s wrong?”
♥ “Only I’m allowed to see you in stuff like that.” He stated before walking away thinking that was the end of it
♥ It wasn’t
♥ Who was he to tell you what you could and couldn’t wear? After he had ignored you for the past week, being a little tease seemed fun
♥ When guests started arriving you stepped out of your room and began greeting people
♥ You could feel his glare from across the room
♥ “Y/N, you look stunning.” Zen complimented.
♥ “Thank–” Jumin comes out of nowhere bumping into you, spilling wine on you.
♥ “Whoops, silly me,” Jumin tightly smiled before whisking you away from confused Zen, “Let’s get you changed.”
♥ When your alone Jumin attacks daddy jumin mode
♥ “That.” Kiss “Dress.” Kiss “Was.” Kiss “Expensive.”
♥ “I’ll buy you thousands more.”
♥ Your wine-stained, dress was soon pooled around your waist
♥ Jumin threw your panties across the room
♥ No time for foreplay he is inside you
♥ He starts ruthlessly pounding away
♥ “Hey Y/N I want to ask- AHHH NEVERMIND!” Zen screams and slams the door in record time.
♥ “Jumin, are you smiling?”
♥ You knew Seven was busy on an important case and wanted to do something special
♥ Trying to think of food you could make was hard
♥ You can’t exactly cook well
♥Deciding on pancakes seemed easy enough
♥ They weren’t
♥ Seven stepped out of his office looking for some Dr.Pepper and saw the kitchen covered in Bisquick and broken eggs
♥ “What happened?“ He’d make fun of you, but he wasn’t that much better at cooking either
♥ "I wanted to make you food, you’re so busy.” You sigh and we’re genuinely disappointed
♥ Seeing this Agent 707 Defender of Justice immediately goes with plan cheer up your girlfriend
♥ "Y/N” He grabs your chin making you look up at him, “All I want eat is you.”
♥ Right before kissing you he’d throw flour in your face
♥ “Really Seven?”
♥ He quickly kiss you to prevent the inevitable war
♥ One swift motion, you were on the messy counter and Seven was in between your legs
♥ Feeling his hardness against you made you even more turned on
♥ “S-Saeyoung.” Hearing his real name come from you… he’d die
♥ Your pants disappeared and he began leaving kisses in between your thighs
♥ He kiss everywhere except where need him
♥ “Don’t tease me~~” You’d pout, making him give in
♥ “I got groceri- Oh dear lord in the kitchen!” Saeran screamed before abandoning the groceries still screaming “The kitchen!” over and over.
♥V had an opening for his first photo gallery and was nervous as to if it would succeed
♥You knew it would but it seemed like he needed a confidence boost
♥You knew just the way to do it
♥You took him to the private office in the gallery and got busy
♥He was reluctant at first
♥"Y/N Are you sure? Anyone could walk in…“
♥"I locked the door.” At least you thought you did.
♥Finally he pulled you onto the desk and boy he worked fast
♥Too many kisses to keep up
♥That led into a make up session that got heated very quickly
♥Where’d his pants go ? Where’d your bra go?
♥He was already rock hard and you slide in front him, wanting to please him
♥Right as he groaned when you put him in your mouth the door swings open
♥You hit your head on the desk
♥Girlish scream and retreating footsteps equal Yoosung
♥"My office doesn’t have lock.“ Sudden realization.
♥At least the gallery went well1!1!
♥ After months of getting help and gaining trust of the RFA members Saeran was officially invited into the RFA
♥ He helped you so much and the day of the party was finally here
♥When you entered the banquet hall Saeran immediately latch himself on you
♥"Can we leave?“ Ten minutes in.
♥"Please? I’ll make you feel good when we get home.”
♥He was horny and anti social
♥After more of his complaints you strike a bargain
♥"How about we go upstairs for little then come back down.“
♥Didn’t need to tell him twice
♥Once you reach an empty room he is all over you
♥Aggressive kisses, not that you mind
♥He began kissing down your neck until he reached your sweet spot making you moan
♥”Be quiet, don’t want anyone to hear.” he said before picking you up and throwing you onto the bed.
♥Saeran pinned you under him and grinded down leaving you a mess
♥Both your clothes came off at one point
♥Mid make out the door swings open
♥ “Well, this is not the correct room.” Jumin swings right back around and leaves.
♥ “I thought you locked the door!”
♥ “I thought you did!”
♥ Saeran got up locked the door, and continued where you left off.

The second the
timer on the drying machine went off to alert you of your shirt finally
being dry enough to wear, the band from its neckline snapped against your
shoulders when you slipped it back on. You pulled some of the cotton material
to your nose, trying to see if it still even faintly smelled like beer.
underwear which just smelled like cum and farts.
The farts courtesy
of Jungkook. Well, you didn’t know if he actually farted, but he just
naturally smelled like that to you—like old beans and moldy cheese.
You’d spent the
past two hours in the laundry room in nothing but a bra and your loose-fitted
skirt. It still hadn’t hit you yet—at least not entirely—that you had let your
next-door neighbor spank and bone the living shit out of you. That was
something you were going to put on your list of
stupid-things-you’ve-done-but-did-anyway-for-some-reason. Maybe his mother
could relate after giving birth to him. You were pretty sure she found him just
as annoying as you.
But then everyone
else thought rainbows shined out of his ass.
about you being like a new avenger (and working in the lab wit father figure
Bruce) and you “meet” the others for the first time at the party
I took some creative liberties here…hope you don’t mind. I’ve been in a super
Peter Parker mood lately, so, here ya go. Also, I’m not dead, and I think this will serve as the first of like
seven-ish fics in what I call: The Morgan Reniassance.
Being a high school
student was tough. Being a high school student and a student intern at the Avengers’ Tower? Tougher yet. And being
a superhero on top of it all…you didn’t know how the hell you fit in time for
homework, but somehow you managed. Luckily for you, it was spring break now, so
you kind of had time to chill and catch up on everything you were falling
“Hey (Y/N), would you
mind passing me the file over there?” Bruce Banner, your kind of sort of father
figure asked, motioning across your station to a file detailing the new pieces
of tech Tony had whipped up in his free time.
“Yep, no prob.” You slid
it down to him. He pushed up his glasses and nodded appreciatively. You took a
long sip from your mug of coffee. You hadn’t even liked it that much, but it
was kind of a necessity in the lab.
“So…” Bruce smirked a
little bit. “Tony’s throwing a party tonight.”
“I don’t know if I can go…you
know, I have like three packets of Algebra homework to catch up on.”
“He’s not going to take
that as an excuse and you know it.”
“Ughhhh, I know.”
“I think he wants you to
finally meet Spiderman.”
“Wait.” This changed
everything. “Spiderman is going to be there?”
“Little crush, huh?”
“W-what? Pfft, no.” Yes. “There
is no way I have a crush on Spiderman.” Yes you did. “That’s ridiculous.” No.
It really wasn’t.
“Don’t worry. He’s a nice
kid.” Bruce removed a gear from the little bot in his hand with a pair of
tweezers and then replaced it. “And I heard he has a little bit of a crush on
Galactic Girl, if my sources are right.”
eyes glowed pink for the shortest second and you nearly fell off of your stool.
“I mean, cool. That’s cool. I guess. Maybe I could meet him. Or something.”
“Okay, but if he breaks
your heart, I’ll break him.”
“Okay Dad,” you smirked.
He smiled. Dad. A title he never
thought he would hold. And yet, here he was with this teenager who had latched
onto him. And he couldn’t have been happier.
You walked into the party
wearing a pink shirt and galaxy leggings. You had put on more makeup than
usual, and you were accompanied by Tony and Bruce, one on each arm.
“And this is Wanda and Pietro
and you already know Nat.” Tony introduced. “Ladies and Speedy, meet the
“Nice to meet you,” Wanda
offered her hand. Pietro smirked, Natasha smiled. You were in awe. You had
heard so much about these people, and here they were, dressed in street clothes
and making small talk.
“And this is Capsicle and
his USO girls.” Tony motioned to Captain America himself, who was standing
beside Sam and Bucky.
“Ha. Very funny.” Sam
chuckled and shook his head.
“Welcome to the team,
(Y/N).” Steve saluted.
“Don’t pass out.” Bruce
“I’m trying.” You replied
through an awestruck smile. And yet, the more people you were introduced to,
the more it became obvious that the reason you were here…wasn’t here yet.
“Spider Boy is on his
way.” Tony read a message on his phone, and not even thirty seconds later, the
red-clad young super hero was clinging to the window. He peered inside for a
few seconds before waving awkwardly. Unlike everyone else, he was wearing his
He climbed into the
penthouse, landing on his feet right in front of Tony.
“Sorry I’m late, Mr. Stark.
There was a robbery and-”
“Relax, kid. You’re fine.”
He motioned to his face. “But uh-”
“Oh. Oh! Right. Sorry.”
He tugged off the red mask, releasing a head of tousled brown hair and kind
brown eyes. God, he was cute. Waaaaay cuter than you had expected him to be. “You
uh, must be the new girl.” He thrust his hand forward. “I’m Peter Man. I mean-
Spider Parker. I uh,”
“(Y/N) (L/N).” You shook
his hand with a grin. “Nice to meet you, Peter.”
“You break her heart, I’ll
break you,” Bruce warned with a well-meaning chuckle as he and Tony removed
themselves from the conversation.
“So uh, your dad is the
“My adoptive dad, yeah.”
You laughed. “He’s awesome. Took me in after I got involved with all of this
alien shit. I really don’t know what I’d do without him.” You looked over to
Bruce, who was standing at the bar with Tony. “And you’re Tony’s…nephew-ish
“You could say that,
yeah.” Peter smiled and chuckled. “I’m um, going to get changed. I swear I’ll
be right back.”
“I’ll hold you to that,
bug boy.” You smiled. Peter ran off as Nat walked up to you.
“So, you and Parker, huh?”
“What? I just met him.”
“Remember: I know
everything.” She winked.
“Right. Of course. How
could I forget?”
“Don’t smart mouth me,
young lady.” She gave you a playful shove.
“Yes, ma’am.” You
playfully shoved her back as Peter walked back into the room, this time wearing
a Bill Nye t-shirt with a flannel and some jeans. Somehow, he was even cuter
this way. “Here comes your boyfriend.” She walked away before you could retort.
“Much better.” He grinned.
You nodded. There was a patch of silence, and then Tony turned on some very
loud, very danceable music. Bruce met your eyes and then tilted his head
towards the slowly-assembling makeshift dance floor. Peter seemed to get the
hint. “Do uh, do you want to dance?”
“S-sure!” You replied. He
held out his hand. You stared at it for a second before slipping yours into it.
“So, looks like Parker’s
gonna be your son-in-law, huh Brucie?” Nat smirked as she watched you and Peter
dance like the dorks you were. It was cute.
“Yeah. He’s a good kid. I’m
glad things worked out.”
“Me too. But if he breaks
her heart, I’ll break him in half.” Nat smirked.
RFA Reaction to cuddling at MCs place while Family/Roommates are there
So basically this is my HC for the RFA I need to start doing Minor Trio with Baeran dammit me going to MCs place for the first time and trying to cuddle/other but the catch is MC lives with family/roomies.
Some are just fluffy. Some get smutty. *cough* Zen and Jumin *cough*
Your room?? Alone?? I-Is that okay??
“Yoosung, we’ve hung at before…”
“Yeah at my place where it was just us…Is…Is your family ok with this?”
“Yoosung I’m a legal adult. I have been. We both are.”
You’re sitting in your bed cuddling, playing video games. You get a little handsy. A slight blush rises in his cheeks and he pretends not to notice as he keeps playing his level.
But your hand rests at the hem of his shirt, and sloooowwwlllly lifts it up, letting your fingers softly trace up and down his sides
Blush intensifies “MC..?? You feelin cuddly?”
“Maaaybe” You nuzzle into the crook of his arm as he puts it around you.
You are not satisfied. More snuggles. More.
You throw one leg over him, latching onto him like a Koala.
It was pretty innocent, but Yoosung imagining your parents or sibling walking in and seeing you tangled up just made him so flustered. ‘If I keep playing my game, even if someone sees us they’ll no nothing was happen-’
You crane your neck and plant a soft kiss on his
YOOSUNG NO WORK NOPE NADA IT’S OVER
This boy can’t keep a poker face. You know you’ve got him. You casually take his DS out of his hands, save the progress, and close it.
Yoosung is just wide eyed staring at the ceiling, lips pursed and shaking juuuust a little bit. His hand still in the position as if he was still holding his DS up. He is too shook
So you make the move, throw your arm over his chest and start kissing his neck again.
“MC are you sure?”
“We’re not gonna go crazy…I mean. Probably not.” And you start leaving a couple soon-to-be hickeys on him.
‘Oh what the hell’ Yoosung gives up. He likes you too much.
He takes your hand in his and interlaces your fingers with his
Turns his head to yours
So many kisses. He starts pressing his lips to yours, it’s deep but still soft.
You guys just keep it up for a while. Snuggles, kisses, the occasional grope.
It gets late into the night and Yoosung figures he should get going.
You walk him to the door and he gives you a kiss goodnight.
You promise to hang out at his place next time so he’s not as nervous.
She thinks your roommates are lovely. They like her too, think she’s kind of stoic, but like her none the less.
You two go up to your room. She sits on your bed, no second thoughts about your roommates or anything. Why would they come in? And even then Jaehee’s sure you’re not ballsy enough to try anything crazy with people in the house
You guys arent quiet enough for that
You sit next to her and put on one of Zen’s shows. You start off side by side but soon end up spooning.
You guys have watched these movies so many times you know all the lines, so whenever Zen goes to deliver a really sexy line, you beat him to it and whisper it in Jaehee’s ear.
She giggles and it’s so fkn cute. Ugh.
You get a little restless at one point. You run your hand down her side, admiring her curves.
And sloooowly back up. Your fingers brush exposed skin and her spine straightens a bit.
“MC…” She chuckles
You two start kissing. It’s sweet and slow. You don’t go very far, because you’re both just feeling more cuddly than lusty. Lusty isn’t a word but shut up
Eventually the movie is over. You walk her out to her car. You go to give her a quick peck goodnight, but she cups your face and holds it there for a good minute. You melt a little and put your hands over hers. She’s too cute.
You watch as her car pulls out of the driveway. A small smile on your lips.
Your roomate opens the front door “Hey, you gonna stand here and think about that steamy ass kiss or come inside already?”
He knocks at the door and your roommate opens it.
“Holy shit MC your hot ass celebrity boyfriend is here” They yell up the stairs (it’s me. I’m one of your obnoxious roommates.)
You come down the stairs “Babe! Hey! Sorry I didn’t get the door I-”
“No worries, Angel” And he planted a quick peck on your lips. You heard your roommates snicker as they set the table for food.
After you all ate, you and Zen slipped into your room. You expected immediate cuddles and kisses but
He just sat at your desk and looked around
“Uh, Babe, you can come sit on the bed” You patted the spot next to you
But Mc…… T H E B E A S T
It could appear at any moment.
I’ll take my chances just get over here you egg.
So he joins you on the bed. Slowly he sinks into the spot next to you, as if a quick movement might rattle the cage of THE BEAST
You turn on your music and start chatting. Eventually ending with Zen’s head in your lap as you play with his hair and he stares at your face with endearment cause he’s just so in love with how focused you look as you braid his hair and chat.
So endeared he doesn’t hear you muttering about cutting off the rat tail
Soon the braid is done and there’s nothing to occupy your hands while you guys talk.
They start off at Zen’s face. Tracing his cheekbones and jawline.
“MC…what are you doing?” He chuckles
“Just touching you”
MC Phrasing please
Then your hands trace the tendons in his neck to the well toned muscles on his shoulders. His shirt color tries to get in the way but you just snake your hands underneath.
His eyebrow twitches
MC please he is using all of his self control right now.
You lean over, giving your arms more reach farther into his shirt, your fingertips brush the beginning of your lovers V line. Haha V line. V. Hah you can only think about V whenever you see Zen’s V line now
Your intention was to get your face inches from Zen, not touch his hips. That was just added bonus
His breath gets a little heavy and husky, brushing your lips which are only about an inch away.
You very slowly, and I mean very slowly, lean in to close the gap. Your eyes half lidded while Zen’s are wide af.
The second your lips touch Zen jumps up. Well he tries. WIth your hands in his shirt and face above his you both get a little tangled for a second but his feet find the floor and he turns so he’s facing away from you.
“Hyun? You ok?”
“ I just…. Ugh. If we kiss like that again I don’t think I’ll be able to help myself, Princ-”
He turns his head, a look of shock in his eyes. “What?”
“So. Don’t.” You grin. “Don’t help yourself”
“But your roommates are-”
You turn your radio volume even higher, a smug look on your face.
His voice dropped so low you thought it was a new person. “Are you sure you want to?”
You got up and pulled him close, pressing your bodies together. “Positive”
I WONDER IF THE MUSIC COVERED THE SOUND OF HIM SLAMMING YOU DOWN ON THAT BED
You guys weren’t used to having to be quiet. Zen wasn’t sure how to feel about you not screaming his name. But it was a fun little challenge for the both of you. It made things interesting, added the element of getting caught.
Eventually you guys were left panting and just laying side by side.
He glanced at the clock.
“Oh shit My Love, I’m sorry to eat and run but it’s getting late and I have morning rehearsal.” He hopped out of bed and started pulling his clothes on.
“I understand Babe” You threw a shirt and sweatpants on and walked him downstairs, where your roommates were still awake watching a movie.
Zen cast a nervous glance towards them, but covered it as soon as they looked in your direction.
“It was nice meeting you!” He waved to them.
“You too!” They both chimed and waved back.
Zen turned to you, gave you a kiss goodnight, and walked out to his car.
You shut the front door, and as soon as you did
“Wow. Your bed is really squeaky huh?
“Wha-” A blush spray paints your cheeks bright red
“Celebrity sex scandaaaaaal” The other one sings.
“We didn’t-” You tried.
“MC….your shirts backwards” They winked.
You looked down and sure as shit you were looking at the back of your shirt. Welp. RIP.
You were a little nervous for Jumin to come over and meet your roommates.
More often than not they were those ruthless Jokester friends. They didn’t get when people didn’t get their jokes and Jumin…he’s not the best with jokes in general.
Your friends are also very casual, so when Jumin showed up in his “Formal Dinner Party” attire they were a little confused.
You had given them a fair warning…but they didn’t think you were serious.
You ate dinner, it went surprisingly okay. You swore there might come a time when Jumin and one of the roomies might hit a rough patch but nope. Smooth sailing, especially when he learned one of your roomies is pre vet and they shared a passion for felines.
After dinner you escorted him to your room.
Almost immediately you were wrapped in each other’s arms on the bed.You guys try to keep it professional in public, so once you’re alone you two make up for the lost public snuggle time hardcore.
You lay side by side, your head on his chest, his arm around you and rubbing your back. You just chat about things, you ask Jumin about random things just to hear his voice His voice is my guilty fucking pleasure my god bless that VA. It calms you. But if he says the right things it gets you a little… hot and bothered.
“So dinner was good….when’s dessert?” Yep like that. Hot. And. Bothered.
“Jumin” You gasped a little, surprised he suggested it
“I’m sorry? I assume from the way your hand was inching towards-”
Oh shit? Your hand was heading down there wasn’t it. Haha ohhhhh Hand. *cue audience laugh track* Anyways
“I mean, I would but uh…my roommates are downstairs. It’s not like the penthouse where it’s just us.”
“And?” He is so shameless. Or clueless. Or maybe a little bit of both.
“Wouldn’t you be, uh, embarrassed?”
“Should I? I assumed it was no secret that we had sex. Usually people assume anways…” He trailed off, but then remembered the situation at hand. “But if you’d rather not I understand. “ He sounded a little disappointed, but then he looked at you with a small smirk. “But I guess now it’ll be only sweeter the next time I get to lay you down and” cue intense details of. He didn’t stop, he just kept talking about all the things you two could do, and his voice kept getting lower and huskier and you could tell how excited he was just by the way he was talking
You couldn’t take it
Fuck the roommates
Jumin was right it’s not like they don’t know
You suddenly rolled so you were on top of him, straddling his waist.
“Kitten I thought-”
You grabbed him by the collar of his shirt and pulled him into a very sloppy kiss.
When you pulled away for air you just “I don’t care. Let them hear.”
You two got wild
….I’ll stop here. You guys don’t need the details
Once you two were finished you were cuddling again. Just cuddling without clothes but that was A OK.
Jumin was back to rubbing your back again, and you were cuddled up to him again.Your hand was on his chest and his hand on top, his thumb gently rubbing back and forth. But instead of talking you guys kept exchanging gentle kisses, taking turns leaning in and reaching for kisses from each other.
Around midnight he figured he should get going home. You both put your clothes on and walked out to the car. On the way there you saw your roommates. They looked a little shook. Little bit. They waved by to Jumin even though they could barely look at the two of you without blushing.
Jumin planted a firm kiss on you at the car, and when you walked back in you turned to your roommates, ready to apologize for the..uh…noise.
“Hey guys…so uh…hahaha awkward amiright?”
“I don’t know, is it….’Kitten’?”
“Or should we ask….’Daddy’?”
You’re never living this down. Ever.
He came over to meet your family
He already knew almost everything about them so he was well prepared to kiss ass
He didn’t have to though, they liked him off the bat. They were glad they finally got to meet the boy MCs been spending all their time with.
After dinner MC and he decided to go upstairs and hang out a bit.
These two nerds legit sat in MCs bed looking at memes on their phones
At least an hour went by with you two just giggling and showing your phones to each other
Somehow you both found ways to get closer to each other without meaning to.
It started off with you two leaning against the wall, but soon you were basically sitting in Seven’s lap, head leaning against his chest, and the two of staring at one phone screen of memes.
At some point Seven snaked his arms around your waist, and buried his face in between your shoulder blade and your neck.
The giggles continued.
Soon you saw a meme that had you dying laughing. Seven was amused, but he ended up getting more amused when you started snorting from laughing so hard. You clasped a hand over your mouth to try to silence the noise, but it was not happening. He thought it was too cute and couldn’t help but kiss your cheek with an overdramatic “MUAAAH” noise
More memes and time passed
Now you two were laying on your tummies, side by side, memeing away
That’s when you look at Seven. A slight grin on his face, the way his eyes sparkle when he’s having a good time, everything about him really.
You just feel so much…love for him.
So you put your phone down and start peppering him with light quick kisses all over the side of his face.
He laughs “MC what are you doing?”
“I just…I love you so much” You can’t hold back the smile on your face. Just staring at him makes you happy. “Saeyoung, sometimes…Sometimes I can’t even believe you’re real” and you lightly touch his face, taking in the feel of his skin and the look in his eyes.
He seems overcome with emotion too. Some mix of happiness and sadness, but then more happiness.
He shifts so he’s facing you more and plants a long kiss on your lips. Eventually you both sit up and just start kissing. It’s not the sloppy make out of when you guys are getting ready to do the do, it’s a long line of passionate kisses filled with innocent love and need for one another.
You end up wrapped in one another’s arms staring into each other’s eyes until both of you doze off.
It’s about 2 am when you wake up. You two are still wrapped up, and Saeyoung is snoozing peacefully inches from your face. You wish you could just stare at him all night, the moonlight bouncing off his face made him look like he really wasn’t real, like he’d turn into mist at any second and slip away Wow I’m getting really poetic. Probably cause it’s 5 am idk sorry
But you know theres work he has to get done and normally he’s not even sleeping at this time so he’s probably already behind schedule.
You start off as a soft whisper, scared your voice could break the magic of the moment “Saeyoung”
He stirrs a bit but doesn’t open his eyes.
A little louder, but still whispering “Saeyoung” HIs eyelids lift slowly, and when he sees your face, a sleepy smile spreads across his own.
This alone makes you feel giddy and in love and your own mouth cracks a giant smile. Then you start peppering his face with gentle kisses.
“Come on” kisskisskiss “Wake up silly” kisskisskiss “I kept you long enough”
In his tired lawd kill me if I heard sleepy Seven’s voice I’d probably die voice he muttered “Keep me forever, MC”
Could you do an Ashton smut where you baby sit his kids because he’s so stressed? Business man and wife left him. So of course he needs a stress reliever. And that’s (y/n). She’s a bad bitch😉👏🏻
Hey I’m so sorry this has taken me months to write. I’ve been super busy with school and I’ve honestly also been procrastinating. I hope this is what you were looking for and thanks so much for being my first request.
And please remember that I am open for requests if you have any, just don’t expect them to come out right away.
You couldn’t resist the adorable five year old child in front of you. The way her small lips would turn into a pout and her head would tilt slightly to the left made it practically impossible to say no to another serving of ice cream. You were weak, and she knew it too.
She clapped her hands and beamed up at you. Despite the pit in your stomach telling you not to give the adorable devil another serving, you reluctantly handed her another bowl, slightly smaller than the last, filled with chocolate ice cream.
As she scarfed down her second dessert, you checked your phone to see if her father, Ashton had texted you. You had immediately volunteered to babysit his daughter after his job started picking up it’s pace.
He was childhood friends with your older brother so when he complained to your brother about needing a part-time nanny, you actually raised your hand like a school girl. Not only did you love spending time with Ellie, you also needed money for food, being a junior in college.
Although Ashton had a beautiful child and a decent job, you always felt bad for him because he had to grow up faster than anyone you knew. Getting a girl pregnant at age eighteen takes a toll on people. Especially when the girl you impregnate leaves you with a two week year-old baby because she “couldn’t handle being responsible for another human being.”
“I’m tired,” Ellie whined, reaching her hands up to rub her eyes. You quickly snapped out of your daze and picked her up.
“Bed time story?” you asked the sleepy toddler. She nodded quickly which made you smile at her eagerness.
Just as her eyes closed you let out a sigh and had just started cleaning up the mess she had made the past few hours when you heard the front door close from within the apartment.
You walked out into the living room to see Ashton looking down at the bills strewn across the kitchen table. “Hey Ash, I just put her to bed.”
A light smile grazed his lips. “Thanks, (Y/n).”
With the small smile on his face you recalled just how attractive he was. His sandy brown hair was long, but still a reasonable length and his light green eyes were always warm. You hadn’t told anyone this, except for your best friend back in high school, but you had always found him attractive.
“Do you want to stay and watch a bit of TV for a little but because I technically said I wouldn’t be home for another thirty minutes. O-or if you have to go that’s fine too,” his face grew slightly red.
You laughed, “Yeah sure. How was work?” you asked, moving to sit crisscross on his couch.
He sat down close to you and sighed, “Actually insane. I feel like I’m in high school all over again. Whatever papers that they give me to complete, they just seem to go unused. It’s like the busy work Mr. Greene would give us. Did you have Mr. Greene?”
You nodded as he grabbed the remote for the television. “Of course. I don’t remember anything from his class because his voice would just put me to sleep,” you both laughed.
“Exactly. That’s like every meeting that I am forced to go to. My boss is practically Mr. Greene and I can never focus because his voice makes me want to fall asleep.”
Deciding to be bold, you placed your hand on his knee and rubbed it soothingly, “Why don’t you just quit? You’re obviously not enjoying it.”
He didn’t seem fazed so you moved your hand up a little further, “Because I need the money. It’s the best job that offers no college experience required.”
Your hand was now slowly caressing his mid-thigh over the pants to his suit. “W-what are you doing?” he asked suddenly, looking down at your hand.
You shrugged and brought your hand up a little higher, “You just seem so stressed and I thought I could maybe help you a little.”
His breath got caught in his throat, “Y-yeah?”
Slowly nodding, you brought you hand on his quickly growing bulge. “Yeah.”
With just the slightest of touches, he quickly inhaled and closed his eyes.
Because he wasn’t denying you, you applied pressure to the tent in his pants which made him groan.
Slowly, you reached for his zipper and tugged it down achingly slow. “Is this okay?” you asked.
“Yes, fuck, yeah,” he whimpered when you palmed him over his boxers.
A small smile stretched across your face as you crawled off of the couch and lowered yourself between his legs.
He visibly gulped, “W-what about your brother?”
While you pulled down his boxers you kept eye contact with him and shrugged, “What he doesn’t know won’t hurt him.”
When his almost fully-erect member was released from its confines, he let out a long breath of air. Without hesitation, you gripped him and slowly tugged upward until he was a moaning mess. “I should come home stressed more often,” he laughed, shakily.
You bit your lip and looked back up at him to see he was staring down at you with hooded eyes. Boldly, you licked a long stripe up the underside of his cock which caused his eyes to roll back. “Oh shit. Baby, your tongue feels so good,” he whimpered.
Just the sight of him, hair matted, crisp, white shirt with only a few buttons still buttoned, made you wet.
You latched your lips around his tip and wasted no time before sinking your head all the way down his length. He wasn’t the longest you had ever had, but he was definitely the thickest.
His mouth widened considerably at the sight of his member down your throat. “You’re so hot when you suck my cock.”
You moaned at his words, the awkward Ashton now completely gone. The vibrations from your moan caused him to buck his hips. When your throat clenched around him he let out an exasperated grunt.
“I’m so close, fuck!” he moaned when he hit the back of your throat again. “I want to be inside you. Please,” he begged, tugging on your hair to pull you up.
“Are you sure?” you asked, surprised that he wanted more than just a blowjob. He nodded frantically and you stood up and walked towards his room. It took him a second to understand what your were doing, but he was soon on your heels.
Once you and Ashton entered his room, you hastily discarded your shirt and leggings. “Lie down,” you demanded.
He obeyed immediately and climbed onto his bed, only wearing his shirt. Your legs quivered at the sight of his member sticking straight up.
When he noticed you looking, a cocky smile spread across his face. “Enjoying the view?”
You rolled your eyes and tugged down your underwear, “Shut up, Irwin.”
His eyes widened when you moved to straddle him, “What’s wrong? Do you not want to?”
His head shook quickly, “No, I want to. It’s just, I haven’t been intimate with anyone since…” he trailed off.
“Since Ellie came?” He nodded. You leaned down and kissed his lips slowly. “Want me to be slow?”
“Fuck no,” he whined before lining up with your entrance so you could sink down.
Your mouth widened at his width. “Ash,” you moaned. You felt him sit up and lean against the bed frame.
“You feel so good, (Y/n),” he whispered, moving his hands to unbuckle your bra. He hummed when your boobs spilled out of their confines.
Slowly, you raised from his shaft and then quickly sunk back down. “Oh my god,” Ashton whimpered.
You started to grind on his cock, earning more moans from the two of you combined until he forcefully gripped your hips and continuously pulled you down on him.
“Ashton!” you yelled, forgetting about the five year-old not too far away.
He could hardly form a coherent sentence and mostly released loud moans and groans of pleasure.
“You’re so thick, Ash.”
He hummed at the feeling of your chests pressed together. “You’re so fucking tight, Jesus.”
“Are you close?” he asked, bringing a hand down to rub figure eights against your clit.
You clenched around him and nodded, “Yes.”
“I could fuck you all day,” he said, bringing his other hand to slap your ass.
Your mouth dropped as that sent you over the edge. You screamed his name repeatedly as the knot inside your stomach burst.
He continued to move your hips until he came in four, hot spurts.
When you had both settled down, he stopped your motion and rested his head in the crook of your neck, placing a few kisses in his wake.
“What does this mean?” you asked him, feeling a little guilty for fucking up your friendship because you knew that after the sex you had just had, you wouldn’t want to remain just friends.
He moved his head to look you in the eyes, “What do you want this to mean?” he asked.
You thought for a minute before responding, “I want this to not be a one-time thing.”
He smiled, “Thank god, I was hoping you’d say that.”
“Yeah, I just don’t know what to tell your brother when he comes over in a couple minutes to see his baby sister naked, and still on my cock.”
I'm saying this from the perspective of a shipper I guess but looking at all these Sheith moments got me thinking.. Would it be possible that the creators themselves are actually planning for them to be canon at some point? But because of some complications..(not gonna name it) they decided to scrap it off? Do you think this is possible? Although Keith telling Shiro he is like a brother to him kinda made me sad? lol I have got so many questions so I can't wait to see more of this amazing series!
Hi anon! The thing is, writing and animation for shows like this are done way in advance. When season 1 came out, I imagine the plot up until seasons 3 or 4 was already set in stone. And Voltron, like most shows, works off a “TV Bible” that had all the major plot points outlined right when the series was first pitched so,, once you plan things out like that I think it’s difficult to make big changes to characters’ relationships.
I think the writers have also made it clear that they are going to go ahead with their narrative rather than catering to popular fannon, particularly when they’ve told certain fans they don’t agree with their mentality at all. Even with things like how they mentioned Allura was a teenager like all the other paladins, a lot of people didn’t headcannon that, but the writers stood by it. It’s their own story after all, and I don’t see why they should change it. As for sheith, we know the writers have outright told people that harassing shippers isn’t okay and they’re completely against it.
There are also plenty of writers, animators, and VAs who have liked clearly romantic sheith fanart, cosplay, or pro-sheith posts (and gotten backlash for it). So we know they’re certainly not opposed to shipping it. And I mean, whether it’s romantic or not, we know that the cast certainly seems invested in their dynamic. The fact that their relationship and character development is by far the most fleshed out is certainly apparent. Here’s also some stuff staff has drawn that shows they at least like Shiro and Keith’s bond:
So anyway, despite how the fandom can be, I don’t think it would necessarily deter the writers or dissuade them from following through with major writing decisions. And given how supportive the staff has been of sheith, I don’t think they would suddenly just abandon whatever plans they had for their character development together. Under the hypothetical that they did make sheith canon, I think they would just maybe adjust how they went about it so that the fandom could kind of like, ease into it, and hopefully not be too mad about it. Though I have no doubt people would still harass the staff if sheith happened, which just…makes me feel really bad to be honest…
On the BOM line though anon, I don’t think it goes against sheith at all and here’s why:
Hello, Leigh ( @lbardugo )! It’s your friendly-neighborhood Baillie!
I wanted to address the presents I’ve been giving (maybe shoving?) your way. While it’s been fun for me to create things that you (and whatever authors I end up latching on to) might enjoy–someone I volunteered with yesterday at the festival warned me to stop because you were probably uncomfortable with the gifts.
And it broke my heart.
A little background on why I started giving you gifts:
The last time I tried to give a friend a present, a personalized and signed copy of Vampire Academy, she accepted with a “Nice! I’ll add it to my collection!” And while I know she meant no harm–instead, meaning to make a joke about how many copies of tVA she had–it kind of made me recoil. It was a present that took hours of action (and standing in line) and a bit of planning to make sure we could get her this present. And my gesture was brushed aside.
I’ve enjoyed giving presents to friends for years and since then I stopped. Which is heartbreaking since I also feel inclined to stop keeping in contact with my friends because, in my mind, this brushoff is some sort of rejection. Even now making friends at my university is kept at a no-present policy so I don’t scare anybody off.
So I turned to authors because I figured they deserve presents and goodies after writing so much and I know I appreciate them to the moon and back. And I know some authors have to deal with mean people a lot and sometimes just need something nice.
I’ll be the first one to admit that my obsession with you increased tenfold when I ended up with SoC at SDCC (and I actually cried walking away from the Fierce Reads booth). Actually–I walk away from almost every interaction with you about to cry because I’m always in such complete and utter awe of your presence. The more I hear you talk at signings and at panels and even just on twitter– it’s more and more clear that you’re a fantastic and amazing person.
And by no means do I want to make you uncomfortable with my presents.
But please, please, please let me know if it makes you uncomfortable or you truly want me to stop. I just had never stopped to even consider your side of things.
It makes me feel incredibly selfish.
My Best Regards,

— based on very recent, very true

the boys next door, rosebushes, grilled cheese, and a whole lot of pizza rolls.
Eighteen years of living
and at the cusp of youth, with one foot prematurely stepping over the line to
the adulthood, you bask in the moment, abandoning all thoughts of midterm exams
and looming due dates and instead, choose to dance wildly around in the crowded
room with Yuna and Lisa. The harsh glow of the strobe lights cast weird shadows
over everyone as the blaring music shakes the fraternity house to its core.
With too many people spilling out onto the pavement, several boys now stand at
the doorway, blocking the entrance and allowing only females to enter. Typical.
A game of beer pong has
been haphazardly set up on the cramped kitchen counter, and you can see Jennie
over there, tossing back her third cup, as several of the guys whistle at her.
Still not feeling the effects of alcohol, she looks over and winks at you, a
sly look on her face contrasting the confused one on yours, before a familiar
pair of arms loops their way around your waist, and you suddenly understand.
You almost stumble as
the person clinging to you sways forward, nearly taking you down with him. You
quickly steady yourself before whirling around to meet the large, brown, doe
eyed, but also glassy eyed, gaze of your boyfriend. Even drunk, with his dark
hair messily swept around and a lazy smile quirking on the corners of his pink
lips, he looks beautiful with a white shirt barely clinging onto his shoulders
and exposing his collarbones while his ripped jeans accent his legs very nicely
if you do say so yourself.

rather sloppy kiss on your cheek with a loud smack.
Ah, yes. And the cringe

clearly very intoxicated boyfriend back to his place.
Let’s talk about DaveKat because I have nothing better to do!!
So, whether or not you personally ship or agree with davekat, this is just going to be about how, from a narrative standpoint, it is 100% vital to both Dave’s and Karkat’s storylines and personal character arcs, let’s start with:
Knight Class- So, bit of class/aspect analysis because the fact they both Dave and Karkat are both Knights is absolutely VITAL to their character development and their connection to each other. Something Kanaya said, that classpects are not necessarily chosen to suit the strengths of each player but rather to challenge them in a way that is most beneficial to their personal growth? That is completely correct, Dave and Karkat being some of the best examples in the comic. The aspects are the elements which the game, and therefore the universe(s) are made of - literally. Like, these are the constructs out of which the world exists, the building blocks so to speak. However, they also represent more metaphorical concepts, Life=Optimism, Hope=Belief, Heart=Soul, so on and so forth etc. So paired with the Knight class, the active pairing of Maid class, we have to examine how exactly the aspect *applies*. Obviously, being active, the Knight class is self serving (more on active vs passive or knight vs maid specifically if y'all hmu with some asks I’d be happy to explain more in depth), there’s also a metric shitload of symbolism involved in the name. I’ve been reading this comic for almost five years and the sheer amount of symbolism never ceases to amaze me, but the absolutely loaded amount of metaphorical value behind this class has to be in my top 5. The classic “knight” iteration, sword and shield type of deal, is instrumental in the interpretation of how Dave and Karkat wield their abilities and grow as characters. The weapon is obviously the way in which they wield their aspects, but the shield is so much more interesting: it’s their PERSONA. Part of the blatant parallels between Dave and Karkat’s story arcs is how they allow others to perceive them in regard to their own internal struggles, they both put up a persona to protect themselves. For Dave it’s his “coolkid” facade, he doesn’t let others see his emotions, feelings, or motivations because he’s so wrapped up in this delusion of irony and toxic masculinity that he feels it would be a weakness to show himself for what he is, one that could very possibly (at the hands of Bro) get him severely injured at best, dead at worst if he fears for his life which is a distinct possibility. Karkat suffers in a similar way, his persona is this image of the overly aggressive, “shouty/angry” guy, he’s loud and obnoxious because he’s trying to keep people at arms length, similar to how Dave doesn’t let anyone in. Karkat also has similar motivations behind this persona, because of his blood color he knows he will be in immediate danger if people get too close, look to closely, care too much, so if he can shout and seem just as bloodthirsty and aggressive as other trolls, he can both keep them away and keep himself free of suspicion. So, they have their shields, their personas, this is how they protect themselves from the world. Let’s talk about their weapons.
Aspects- As I mentioned above, aspects are the literal elements that make up the world, but also have a more metaphorical meaning. In the same way that Heart=Soul, Dave’s aspect Time is not only literally representative of time, but metaphorically representative of PROGRESSION. Karkat’s aspect of blood is therefore, while literally blood (possibly a reference to his mutation), also more symbolically representative of UNITY. Now, let’s see how those apply to each players personal struggle, because remember that’s the key here, how their classpects tie in to their character arcs. Dave is troubled by his aspect at multiple points throughout the storyline, severely disturbed by dead Dave’s and essentially haunted by the multiple loops he has running, in what is a single day to his fellow beta players likely feels like *weeks* for him, he’s not progressing in the game, he’s running all these loops and doing so much and yet he’s not really going anywhere. He’s like a broken record, if you will. Dave doesn’t see himself as a hero, broken sword symbolism aside because I cannot get into that rn lmao that’s way too loaded and this is long enough, Dave *can’t* see himself as a hero because in his mind, Bro was a hero, and he will never live up to it, so why bother. Easier to just run his loops and do whatever Terezi says because she’s probably right and anyways it’s just easier to do something menial and meaningless that doesn’t move anything forward because he would probably fuck it up anyways, right? Dave is so stuck in the past, haunted by his loops, haunted by the legacy of his Bro, haunted by dead Daves, he is terrified (whether consciously or subconsciously) of moving forward, of Progression. Alternatively, Karkat’s aspect of Blood, or UNITY trips him up in similar ways. Karkat’s relationships are…complicated. It’s been *headcanoned* that he comes across as pale towards most of his friends, because despite how hard he tries to act loud and aggressive, he’s a big softie who cares way too goddamn much about everything. Terezi also represents his biggest struggle with Unity and relationships, he “wanted her in every quadrant like a desperate fool”, and she played along for a while to see if he would settle in any one quadrant, but when he never did she moved on. This is a huge blow to Karkat’s self-esteem, he thought he was being so suave and smooth just like his romance novels and movies, but really he was pushing her away either knowingly or unknowingly. On the topic of his romance novels, his obsession with relationships also shows him trying to compensate (more on this in a sec) for his lack of capability in the area, as if he’s studying them to get a better understanding of how relationships should work because he really has no idea. In his very first conversation with Sollux that we see, he ends by affirming that he hasn’t gone too far right? They’re still friends? Because underneath his loud, obnoxious persona, he’s just acting the way he thinks he’s supposed to in this hyper-aggressive society. Sound familiar? It’s because Dave is doing the same thing. They’re both using their personas to survive, to appear the way they think they should to other people, because when it comes to their aspects, they’re fucking terrified and don’t have a clue as to what they’re really doing.
Storyline Parallels- So, I’ve seen a lot of good analysis of this and I doubt any of what I’m saying will be news to any of you, but I’m gonna put it in my own words as best I can bc this shit is imperative to understanding why DaveKat works so perfectly in the narrative. Dave is obviously working an uphill battle the entire story to overcome the hyper-masculinity (see also: toxic) that his Bro has ingrained in his psyche for 13 years. Not the least of which is some deeply rooted homophobia. Dave fronts constantly, accusing others of being gay, accusing *Karkat* of being gay pretty amusingly. Obviously he pokes at this in other people because he’s so insecure about it in himself, he struggles heavily with his sexuality the way so many pre-teens do, only he’s fighting against a decades worth of anti-gay propaganda basically so there’s no room for him to search within himself too deeply without feeling deeply uncomfortable because obviously that’s Wrong and Bad and that’s not how society works in his world. Similarly, Karkat struggles with the quadrants which is practically unheard of on Alternia. It’s such a clear parallel to human homophobia that like. I’m left speechless when I think about it honestly. Their struggles are so overwhelmingly similar and parallel to each other sometimes I just have to stop and appreciate it. But back on topic, his whole life, Karkat has grown up with this over idealized concept of romance, the quadrants, and he obviously knows something is wrong with himself from an early age. Karkat’s obsession with romance novels is no coincidence, he’s clearly always felt off when it comes to that and so he most likely reached out to these novels and movies to get a better grasp of the quadrants, consuming what was essentially romantic propaganda to overcompensate. The problem is, in studying these works, he latched onto the wrong thing which is so funny to me. He’s reading these trying to understand, to make himself fit into this system because that’s what society is like *cough* heteronormativity *cough* and yet he latched onto quadrant vacillation like it’s the holy fucking grail of romance. Like oh, okay, this is normal? Obviously people do this, as long as they switch within the bounds of the system it’s Okay™ and even romantic in some occasions. Only, this is fiction he’s reading and if you try to apply the logic of romance novels to real life…well, we all know what happened with Terezi. He was constantly pushing the boundaries of vacillation, he was red for her, he wanted to act black on occasion, he cares so much about everyone it’s impossible for him not to be pale, and we see him (though I doubt he realizes he’s doing it) trying to auspistice for her and Gamzee in the pre-retcon timeline by staging a sort of intervention. He “wanted her in every quadrant like a desperate fool” and I don’t understand how people put Karkat into the quadrant system!!! That line is so IMPORTANT, not even taking into account that we know his dancestor, who shared his blood mutation which may have had something to do with his irregularities, loved the Disciple “beyond the quadrants”. It’s. So. Obvious. Karkat is overcoming the stigma of wanting to love beyond the quadrants in the same way that Dave is struggling to overcome the loaded idea behind being Not Straight. They’re both overcoming these extremely similar prospects and it’s an absolutely stunning feat of narrative that as an English major it makes me fucking weak in the goddamn knees like Hussie is a lot of things but this? This is fucking genius. I’ve never seen two characters written together in such an in depth and parallel way before.
Opposites Attract- So we’ve talked about their similarities, let’s talk about their differences and how those differences are also actually poorly disguised similarities. Karkat is obviously a Loud Boy, thats his coping mechanism. He keeps people out and away by being loud and aggressive. Dave needs to cope for similar reasons, to protect himself he needs to keep people out and away but he does it in just the opposite way, he gets quiet. He doesn’t talk about his shit. Sure, he’ll go on the rambling metaphor when the occasion calls, but although he’s always talking he’s never really saying anything. Karkat is an almost compulsive over sharer, like, the boy (bless his heart) has zero filter. Dave will talk your ear off just as well, but I’ll be fuckin damned if he says anything worthwhile outright (his many, many Freudian slips aside). It’s also interesting to note that while I’ve seen people talk about how part of the reason Karkat doesn’t fit into Alternian society is that he’s so human, as its stated in the narrative that after seeing this soft species, that shares his blood color and stupid, stupid compassion, even *Vriska* admits that Karkat seems to fit in better with them than he ever did with trolls, we don’t see the same for Dave? I’ve rarely, if ever, seen the situation flipped, in that Dave was more suited for Alternian society the same way Karkat was more human than troll or at least had severely human aspects. Obviously Dave’s romance is still very human in that he’s a big ol’ fan of monogamy (he and Karkat both faced problems in their relationships with Terezi romantically when she became involved in other quadrants, these boys love monogamy I’ll fight), but his upbringing? Yikes. Lusii are supposed to, while still protecting their trolls, prepare them for the harsh and violent world. Whether they had to kill other trolls and Lusii to feed them, or learn how to fight to fend off other trolls on their own, there was a shit ton of fighting in their pre-pubescent years. Trolls are a hyper aggressive, violent species that learn to fight basically as soon as they can walk, which is exactly what Bro did to Dave. Dave could fight practically from the second he crawled off the meteor, I doubt a day went by without a sword in his hand for some reason and god knows he suffered through enough strifes. Both boys were brought up just thoroughly *wrong* for their societies in a way that ensured they would never feel like they truly fit in.
Finally, Romance- In the final culmination of all this, let’s actually talk about how they work together as a couple. So, they have this overwhelmingly similar upbringing and life experience, what happens when they finally meet up? Dave thinks it’s hilarious that Karkat is always yelling, “get a load of this guy I was telling you about, Rose”, and while I have no doubt he thought Karkat’s shitfits were the funniest thing since Colonel Sassacre, there had to be a part of him that was just in awe of how someone could be so free with their emotions. Like, he’s angry? And you know it the second he walks into a room?? This is an entirely new concept to Dave, my son, who grew up with an insanely passive-aggressive psychopath who would sneak up on him and fight him with a crazy fucking puppet like what the fuck?? Dave has always had to be on edge at home, Bro was quiet so you never knew when he was upset and you never knew when he was coming for you. With Karkat, that’s such a non-issue it’s like the issue dined and dashed, no bill and no tip, vanished into the wind. You can hear Karkat stomping down the hall five minutes before he even gets into the room, and once he gets there oh boy he will Let You Know What The Problem Is. Why is Dave always provoking Karkat? Literally just to hear him yell because it’s so goddamn refreshing to know exactly with 100% certainty what someone is thinking, no irony, no bullshit, just genuine fucking refreshing annoyance. And for Karkat, well here’s the guy he’s always wanted to be, right? Cool and suave, the romcom hero who could smooth talk the paint off a wall. Only, Dave isn’t actually cool in the way he pretends to be, he’s not this smooth suave hero, he’s not even just a hero. He can’t be. He’s just…a kid. A kid like Karkat who has issues like Karkat and talks just as much when he’s nervous as Karkat and he’s relatable even though he’s trying not to be. He’s trying so hard to be what society wants from him he wants to be the tough guy with the sword but he’s just so not and that’s so refreshing! Karkat realizes he’s not the only one who’s trying to live up to some buttfuck impossiblestandards and he realizes…that’s okay. He doesn’t have to be anything he’s not. And they figure that out together.
So pardon me if I don’t understand how you can put Dave with John, or Jade, because they don’t fit. The narrative literally doesn’t benefit in any way for them to fit, and if it’s your personal preference then by all means go for it who am I to stop you, but there is no benefit to them being together. They will not grow from it, John is explicitly someone who doesn’t seem to focus or care much about romance even? And Jade has no concept of anything Dave has gone through, she couldn’t even begin to understand. Same with Terezi and Karkat, or Gamzee and Karkat or John and Karkat or whatever, Terezi likes quadrants. They make sense to her and she enjoys them, Karkat cannot bring himself to deal with with that and they’re so much happier as just friends. I’m not even getting into Gamzee, I’m not even gonna dip my toe into that discourse because everyone likes different characters for different reasons and I won’t begrudge you of that so I’m just gonna stay away. So again, if you ship those then that’s fine! Go for it! This is just an analysis of why the narrative, in my personal perspective, supports DaveKat and why I personally think they are good and healthy for each other and help each other grow as people.
Summary: You wake up after a night of drinking to James Barnes.
Pounding headache? Check. Weak
stomach? Check. Light sensitivity? You cracked your eye and
immediately shut it again. Check. You rolled over to pull the covers
over your head and found that you weren’t alone. As a matter of fact,
the bed you were in felt different than the one you usually slept on.
You pushed yourself up on your elbows and flipped the hair out of
Shit. This definitely was not your
bedroom. You looked out the giant windows that seemed to overlook the
Oh god. What did you do last night?

friends to celebrate your birthday. You had more to drink than you
should and Katherine took your keys. But why would they leave you
alone with no way home?

pretty tanked by the time the bar lights came up and he insisted on
sharing a cab.
You both poured yourself in to the
car and you didn’t make it a block away from the bar before your
lips molded to his.

scooped up your heels, trying to make as little noise as possible.
Jeez. Why couldn’t you have worn a pair of jeans or at least
something that didn’t scream “GUESS WHAT I DID LAST NIGHT” as you
walked down the city streets. You kept your head down as you slowly
shut the door to the bedroom behind you. The tiny click sounding like
an explosion in the relative quiet that surrounded you. When you
glanced around you were flooded with the memory of bouncing off of
every flat surface in the narrow hallway as Bucky kissed his way
from your lips to your chest. His shirt was unbuttoned before he got
the door open and he had his mouth latched on to your collar bone.
the door shut his shirt fell to the floor and your dress was pulled
over your head. He quickly lifted you from the ground and you wrapped
your legs around his waist as he moved you to the bed. He dropped
you on the mattress and you giggled softly as you bounced, you
worried that your laughter had ruined the mood when his lips didn’t
immediately find yours again.
worries were lost when Bucky flipped on the bed side lamp and you
caught a glimpse of his face. His eyes were dark, pupils dilated from
want and he was slowly running his teeth across his swollen bottom
lip. He looked disheveled in the most beautiful way. You squeezed
your legs together to ease the fire that was burning between them,
you had never wanted anyone this bad before and it felt like you
would burst in to flames at any moment.
movement caught Bucky’s attention and he looked at your clothed core
like a man starved. He sunk to the floor in front of your legs and
pulled you to the edge of the bed. A feral noise ripped from his
throat as he kissed the inside of your thighs.
damn Doll, you smell amazing.”
moaned at his words, writhing beneath him as his hot breath hit your
core. His thumbs hooked around the edges of your underwear and he bit
and kissed your hips and thighs as he slid the flimsy material down
your legs. You bucked at the air hoping for some friction.
You begged, only able to muster a breathy whisper.
drove in, licking a thick stripe through your folds and making your
legs quake. He pulled back and made eye contact with you before
taking the middle finger of his left hand into his mouth. He wet the
metal enough to sink it in to you. His mouth returned to you before
he slipped the sinfully cool metal in to your heat. You felt the knot
in your stomach coil tighter as he attached his mouth to your clit
and began working his tongue in slow, lazy circles.

thrusts became more frantic as his own release washed over him.
shook your head back and forth, trying to clear the memories from
your head. Bucky had been a very attentive lover and would make one
hell of a story for your first on night stand but you wanted out of
the tower before he had a chance to wake up or you ran in to the
other people that occupied the space.
had to have pushed the button for the elevator 60 times hoping that
it would move a little quicker; you could hear the first signs of
life coming from the other rooms. You were sure that this was a
common occurrence for a Sunday, someone making their way from one of
the rooms in the tower. You had never thought of yourself as a
superhero groupie but you knew that they existed. Several girls
camped out on the sidewalk of the tower every night on the weekend
hoping to catch their favorite’s attention. You didn’t blame them,
the Avengers were all stunning in their own way but that just wasn’t
heard a door open behind you at the same time the elevator finally
made it to the floor. You quickly shuffled in and started frantically
pushing the close button. Your eyes stayed glued to your shoes until
you heard a husky voice. “Hey, no wait.” The voice was almost
frantic as you glanced up and you were met with steely blue-gray
eyes. The doors closed before he could say anything else.
leaned your head back on the cool metal of the elevator as you tried
to gather your jumbled thoughts. Your rummaged through your purse to
find your phone. You held the power button until it buzzed to life in
your hands. There were 15 texts on your phone and you scrolled
through them before letting your best friends know that you were more
than okay. When the elevator made it to the lobby you made a bee line
for the door.

quickly reached in to your bag and ducked in to the first coffee shop
you laid eyes on.

Avenger last night. How was he?” You best friend could be

She half whined at you. “We left you in good hands. They were good

I’ve got a cab to catch.” You quickly shut the phone.
woke up with a smile plastered on his face. He rolled over to get a
look at your sleeping form just to find your side of the bed empty
and your clothes gone. He quickly jumped to his feet and threw on the
first pair of sweatpants his hands touched.
ran out the door and skidded to a hard stop as he saw you getting on
the elevator. He called out to you and you met his eyes for just a
moment before the doors closed.

the front door of the lobby before he made it down the last few
steps. He saw you through the little window and jumped the stairs
before bursting through the door after you.

Bucky felt like a fool. He had met a wonderful girl, someone genuine,
clever, and gorgeous to top it all off. And he just let her slip

“I can bring Castiel back to you.”
“Dean, hear him out!”
Dean shook his head, squared his jaw and stormed out of the room.
“Dean!” Sam called after him.
“I thought he would… like this news.” Jack frowned, looking more down than before.
Sam sighed, “Remember what I told you about Dean getting his wires crossed? Right now, his wires are… all over the place. I’ll talk to him.”
“If it is okay, Sam, I think it should be me that talks to him.”
Sam was hesitant but nodded solemnly.
The knock on Dean’s door was so soft that he almost didn’t hear it as he was unpacking his duffel bag.
“C’min” He grunted.
The door opened and Dean saw red, “Not you.”
Jack raised his hands in surrender, “I- I understand, you are grieving, and that I am… at fault… for the losses in your life.” He spoke slowly, assessing Dean’s reaction. Dean was still guarded, arms crossed over his chest, anger radiating off of him, but he didn’t interrupt, so Jack continued. “This is… a way for me to apologize, for everything.”
Dean snorted sardonically, “Yeah, sure.”
“You don’t believe it can be done.”
“Even if I did, I don’t trust you to be the one to do it.”
A superhero listens to her head: A Marinette analysis
Or rather, I’ve become confused by fandom’s view of Marinette and her perception of herself, as well as fandom’s view of her decision to keep her identity a secret, and I really needed to make a long, cathartic post about it.
Let’s just take a look at Marinette’s character before I get into the heart of this. Going back to Origins, she started out exactly as I expected her to; a bit of a push over, but with a little bit of spunk beneath the surface that needed an outlet. Without the responsibilities of Ladybug to give her that metaphorical kick out the door, she saw herself as a human disaster with the worst kind of luck. Chloe apparently making Marinette a constant victim of hers certainly didn’t help matters, and it was when Chloe stole her seat that we saw a girl who hasn’t yet gained that confidence she’s known for. Marinette confided in Alya that she wished she was able to stand up to Chloe right after the incident. She had insecurities born out of her clumsiness and constantly being pushed around by the class bully.
Of course, she had moments of standing up for herself, though her frustration was directed at the wrong person when she told off Adrien for what she thought was him helping Chloe put gum on her seat. I wouldn’t call it a victory, but what it does show us is that Marinette wasn’t timid enough to let acts like this slide by without saying something at this point. Like I said above, she had spunk, but no way for her shell to really crack open yet. It wasn’t until she became Ladybug for the first time and was forced into a position where she had to act that she displayed her brilliance as a heroine with great strategic skills.
Her moment of doubt after failing to purify the akuma only made me appreciate Marinette’s journey in becoming confident all the more. Crushed after making a critical mistake with the akuma, she was ready to give up, thinking she wasn’t super hero material. Rome wasn’t built in a day after all, and from what we’ve seen of her this far in the origins story, she had a lot of self doubt when it came to taking a stand against oppressors and jerks of any kind. Marinette had to be forced to act once again, this time because Alya was trapped beneath a car. This catalyst, plus Chat Noir’s words of encouragement, gave her the final boost of confidence she needed to fully bloom into the power house super hero we know her to be now.
I really appreciate the origin story of Marinette precisely because it showed us her doubt. Her leadership skills, her confidence to stand up to others she feels are in the wrong, this was hard-earned. Shehad to agonize over this decision to become Ladybug and be put through the ringer in order to come out on top. She was brought to her lowest point in order to be built back up again, and I guess this is the crux of the issue I have with how she’s often portrayed.
See, I feel like a lot of people just… ignore the struggle Marinette went through in Origins. Or not ignore per say, but there is a lot of hyper focus (and extreme exaggeration) on Marinette’s insecurities about her clumsy nature and push-over personality even though she moved past this, and she really worked to move past this at that. So whenever I read people refer to Marinette thinking of herself as ‘plain and boring, too shy’, I one, wonder if we’re watching the same show, and two, don’t think people appreciate how hard mentally she had to work to be the person she is now.
This is who Marinette is; Someone who takes charge of a situation that’s out of hand, e.g; her running for class president to relieve her class of Chloe’s reign, assuring the class that they would finish the movie they had to produce with a measure of confidence and surety that only a natural-born leader could have, and let’s not forget every time she had to put Chloe in her place whenever the situation called for it. This girl will get an idea for a design or a plan to defeat and akuma and she puts herself fully behind it, knowing the idea is good. This is someone who is confident in herself and knows exactly what she’s worth. Marinette is Ladybug, and there has never been a moment where she thought of herself as wearing this mask of confidence as a ruse that hid an insecure girl beneath.
And I want to make myself clear, all of this is not to say that Marinette can’t have doubt from time to time. She’s human, she’s a teenager, so it’s to be expected that there will be moments of her questioning herself. One moment that comes to mind is in Antibug when she was detransformed and faced with what she thought was an inability to help Chat Noir without her powers. All it took was some encouraging words from Tikki that she was Ladybug with or without the suit for her to get her act together and formulate a plan. But for whatever reason, it seems like this moment has been latched onto by a good chunk of the fandom as proof of Marinette’s insecurities about herself, even though she bounced back really quick from a very reasonable moment of doubt. I say reasonable, because it was Marinette having to face a super villain without super powers, and anyone would look at that situation and probably make that judgement call no matter how confident in their abilities they were.
There are 2 more seasons of this show planned out. I completely expect there to be more moments of Marinette questioning her abilities, of being hard on herself for any mistake she might make because it’s natural to do this, especially with all the pressures that comes with being a super hero. But there is a very big different between that and the near self-loathing I see people portray her having, to the point where it’s a generally accepted head canon that Marinette’s desire to keep her identity a secret from Chat Noir was born from crippling insecurities, despite there being absolutely no evidence for this.
It’s precisely this trope in fandom that inspired me to write this entire thing. There are a lot of problems I have with this, from the mischaracterization of Marinette, to the blame that’s put solely on her shoulders for keeping her and Chat Noir’s identity a secret from each other. Before I delve into this though, everyone, keep writing what you’re writing. If you like this trope, have at it, please. The last thing I want to do is like… dictate what people should and shouldn’t write. I just find it worth criticizing only because it seems to be across the board that this characterization of Marinette is canon, when there’s very little evidence for it, and in fact, there was a clear dichotomy set up between Ladybug and Chat Noir and how they view this whole secret identity business that’s rarely explored, but more on that later.
When the issue of secret identities is first brought up in great detail, it’s in Lady Wifi. We see for the first time how desperate Chat Noir was to know who’s behind Ladybug’s mask. He’s in love with her after all, and he wants to get to know all of her. So he pleaded with her to drop the mask. Here was Ladybug’s response;
She even smiled at him consolingly before shutting the door behind her. Now, to me this reaction isn’t screaming defensive. If anything, it is completely empathetic to Chat Noir’s desire to learn who she is, so it’s safe to assume, to me anyway, that she would also like to know who he is too. But here’s the thing about Ladybug; despite how frazzled she can get in certain situations (usually involving Adrien), she is someone who thinks with her head. She even said it;
Can we just dissect that line for a second though? She decided to listen to her head despite what her heart was saying. So this meant her heart was telling her to reveal herself to Chat Noir. She wants to. He’s her partner and I’m sure she loves him as a dear friend at this point. But she was faced with an emotional decision vs. a logical one, and she chose the logical route.
But people portray her as making this decision emotionally, through a desire to keep her superhero life and civilian life separate because she doesn’t want Chat Noir, and generally people she cares about, to be disappointed that she’s Ladybug. And this is just so, so wrong. Not only is there nothing to back this up, it often completely ignores the age-old trope of keeping this a secret purely for their own physical safety, as well as their loved ones.
It’s taken so much farther than this though. I’ve seen it far too often that the weight of this decision of put entirely onto Ladybug’s shoulders, and 9 times out of 10 she’s shown to be the unreasonable one when it comes to keeping her identity a secret despite it being the smart thing to do. 9 times out of 10, this portrayal seems to be used for the sole purpose of making Chat Noir out to be the silently suffering, but oh so patient friend that’s just waiting for Ladybug to stop being overly defensive about her identity.
I think that’s the part that really upsets me, if I’m thinking on it. Chat Noir is more popular than Ladybug in the fandom, and treated a lot more… softly, than her, and I think it really shows in this trope. In a situation where Ladybug kindly turned down Chat Noir’s offer to learn each others identities for logical reasons, it’s often twisted into this emotionally damaging situation, where Ladybug is so insecure that she’s the one dealing all of the emotional damage to Chat Noir in order to protect herself. In a situation where Chat Noir’s desire to know who she is to the point of nearly opening that door despite her wishes can be summed up as reckless and disrespectful (and thank god he decided not to, because he’s so much better than that), Ladybug is the one who is always written to be in the wrong.
I can’t see how keeping their identity a secret is not the right course of action to take. As far as I see it, Ladybug is just thinking ahead. What if one of them got captured and was forced to disclose who their partner was? What would have happened if Chat Noir knew who Ladybug was, and he was put under the control of an akuma? There would be nothing to stop him from letting the world know who Ladybug was. Generally though, this is just superhero 101 stuff. There was nothing personal about the decision Ladybug came to, so whether you think them knowing each other behind the mask is a safety issue or not, it doesn’t change that Ladybug clearly thought it was. Why would she say that it was a decision made with her head, if there was some personal reason behind it?
Also, I think ignoring that she came to this decision by using her head ruins the wonderful dichotomy set up between her and Chat Noir. Right after Adrien left the hotel after deciding to not peak in on Ladybug while she detransformed, Plagg asked him, “What were you thinking?” referring to him missing out on the chance to peak in on Ladybug. Adrien simply said he wasn’t thinking, that he was following his heart. His heart was telling him to listen to what she wanted, so in his own way he also came to the decision to keep their identities a secret. This scene is directly juxtaposed by the next one, with Marinette coming to the same decision, but by using her head and not her heart.
So here you have Ladybug wanting their identities to be kept secret because it’s logical and thus safer for everyone. It makes sense. Chat Noir is the opposite. His decision to close that door and not peak wasn’t made because he saw the sense in her decision, and we can presume this because he follows this up by saying it was a decision made with his heart. One can assume he meant that he wanted to respect Ladybug’s wishes, rather than agreeing with her that this was the right thing to do. There’s just so much writing material to unpack in that alone, but it can’t be seen if most of the fandom ignores Ladybug as the one who thinks logically in the partnership.
I’m not really sure what I’m trying to do with this analysis besides getting all my feelings out about this character. It was just something I felt desperately needed pointing out, not just because it mischaracterizes Marinette, but I find that she’s often treated very unfairly by fandom for the decision to keep her identity a secret. It can’t all be put onto her shoulders. She’s not hiding this because she feels unworthy of the title, despite how it might hurt Chat Noir. She’s just being smart. If anything, Chat Noir could have been classified as being reckless for wanting to know who she is, but this is something I rarely if ever seen brought up by the fandom.
To sum it up, well… I guess what I’m trying to say more frankly is I wish fandom would give Marinette a break. She’s a lot more secure in herself as a person, logical, and empathetic of Chat Noir’s feelings than people often give her credit for.

Author’s Notes: This is obviously the end of my trailer chapters. I hope you all enjoyed how I decided to tell this part of the story. I know it was not in tandem with how American Assassin actually goes, but I loved writing it and I hope you loved reading it. Thanks so much :)
Summary: Mitch pursues the nuclear bomb headed for Rome’s international airport and the U.S. Naval fleet, in an effort to stave off absolute disaster.
The ringing in your ears subsided when you heard Mitch screaming your name. You felt like you were being pulled back into your body in that moment; as if for the previous few moments, you had been floating above yourself, simply watching the whole scene take place like an uninvolved bystander. You stared at the blood running into the crevices between the stones on the ground and then at the lifeless body that it was pouring out of.
“Y/n/n. Look at me.” Mitch said in a calmer tone and you brought your gaze up to him.
