In Over Their Heads

A Yuri on Ice Fanfic
Written for @seungchuchuweek

Sara laughed at him for three minutes straight. And, yes, he did time it. She tried to say something twice, and both times collapsed back into laughter.

“Honestly, I can’t take it. My sides hurt.” She finally gasped out.

“It isn’t funny.”

“Seung Gil, it is sooo funny, you don’t even know.”

“It’s your fault.”

“I said “or you could be a coward and say you are with someone.” The first half of my advice was “Tell her you aren’t interested.” So clearly it’s yours.“

“I tried your first advice. She insisted she could change whatever I didn’t like, including getting plastic surgery.” Seung Gil scowled. Sara was skating that night, so dumping his problems on her probably wasn’t fair. Seeing as she seemed so amused, though, he didn’t feel the least bit guilty.

Sara wrinkled her nose. “Well, that does sound a bit creepy. So you told her you were engaged, though? I mean, couldn’t you have just said dating?”

“I said I was with someone and she demanded to know if we were serious. Any hint otherwise seemed likely to make the whole confrontation pointless.”

“Okay, so she posts her heartbreak online where, of course, it goes viral.”

“My coach called me at 4 am, Sara. 4 am. She didn’t even wait til practice.”

“Yikes…” Sara grimaced. “Okay, so now it’s all over the web, and the reporters are starting to drop hints because they want to break the story. Except there is no story.”

“Exactly.”

Nalu Soccer Au: Red Card

Here I go again with another multi chapter story. I won’t post it on fanfiction until some other time

Well I know this isn’t smart of me to start yet another story but @illustraice inspired me to make a Nalu soccer au and well I started typing away lol. I really hope you like it! This was made in a 3 hr car ride in the trunk of my own car with my phone so excuse typos *sigh*

Story name: Red Card
Rating: T for now for colorful cursing, suggestive themes, kissing, etc.
Pairing(s): Nalu with a side of Sting x Yukino, Gajeevy, Gruvia, and Jerza
Summary: Lucy had always been a hard core soccer fan despite her girlish appearance. Her idol, Fairy Tail’s number 14 and forward, Natsu Dragneel. When by chance she’s gifted tickets for a meet and greet of her favorite team, she excitedly sets off only to unknowingly bump into a disguised Natsu who was on the run from his fans. What could this encounter unfold? Nalu

Setting the Net

Full on concentration. A complete and calculated concentration. Swift movement of feet and disheveled grass thrown aside by the quick and very sudden movements. The ball kicked with such grace as it soars and rolls to its next caretaker until it finally, with a piercing blow, is sent past the white line known as the edge of the net. The greatest excitement and disappointment all in one go. Cheers from those who saw the glorious entrance of the ball while the others yelled a string of curses or slapped their hands on their face knowing that was a point for the team not of their own. Soccer, a sport of passion.

“Yes! Gooool!” A blonde squealed prancing around the room with her arms flailing about her face contorted in joy and her chocolate brown eyes glowed. “Uh, L-Lucy, you really do love soccer, huh?” A silver haired girl with brown eyes smiled nervously from the couch as she saw her friend go crazy around their apartment living room. The blonde turned to her roommate as a blush spread at her cheeks.

She scratched the back of her head sheepishly. “Sorry, Yukino. It’s just I’ve loved soccer since forever. It’s so exciting! It’s such a rush even when you yourself aren’t playing.” Lucy breathed dreamily as she went to slouch on the couch. The silver head could only examine her. Her blonde locks in a high pony tail. The meticulously applied make up on her face in addition to the perfect manicured nails. The pale pink dress at her thighs and even the nude heels. The epitome of girlish. At that Yukino let out a snort of amusement, startling the blonde.

“W-What?” Lucy questioned as she saw the woman beside her begin to laugh to herself. “S-Sorry! It’s just…your looks…totally contradict your hobbies and interests”, Yukino apologized while still chuckling in between her explanation. The blonde shrugged thinking about it herself as she allowed herself to giggle at the truancy of the words. “You’re right, which is why I can’t date a guy unless I cab talk to him about soccer”, she joked lightly.

Another fit of giggles and Lucy was yet again entranced with the game going on the tv. No one, but Yukino knew at the university about Lucy’s infatuation with the sport. Not the blonde would mind them knowing, but she liked it better that way because boys would tend to kiss up to her for a date and knowing her secret would only lead to a fake ‘same’ interest on their part. Yukino blinked when she noticed Lucy’s eyes brighten up suddenly when a specific player got the ball with ease.

Yukino looked at the male player and noticed off the bat, the pink colored hair he possessed along with some beautiful emerald eyes. He wore a red jersey with a fairy insignia at the left side of his chest with the words ‘Fairy Tail’ right under. The number 14 was plastered at the back with 'Dragneel’ written above it. “Do you like him?” The silver head asked suddenly as the blonde squeaked in response. “I love him! Natsu Dragneel is just amazing. He’s Fairy Tail’s prodigy, their best forward followed by their second forward and number 11, Gray Fullbuster. What I would give to meet him”, Lucy explained with such a love struck expression on her face. Yukino let a discreet smile pass her lips as she retrieved her purse lying behind the couch.

“Hmm, is that so, the I’m sure you’d like these”, the petite girl sang as the blonde turned to her. Yukino held two tickets in her hand and waved them teasingly in front of the blonde’s face. Lucy tried looked over them and read the words “Fairy Tail meet and greet 5pm at Magnolia”. “Oh. My. God!!!” Lucy yelled as she hugged the silver head tightly.

“Where did you get those?” Lucy questioned as she looked at Yukino as if looking at a goddess. the latter only smiled knowingly. “Oh, I have my ways, and just so you know, this is today just when they’re game finishes~ So you should retouch your make up, and go or else you’ll be late”, Yukino sang as Lucy jumped up to run into her room while still squealing uncontrollably.

“Oh boy, if only she knee how I got these she’d go crazy”, the silver head smiled to herself.

~~xXXx~~

No later, Lucy had run out of her apartment, purse in hand and tickets safely inside. It was 4:30 and she’d be late if she didn’t hurry up. “Dang! My make up and finding my jersey took longer than I thought”, she scolded herself. She’d put her jersey in her purse for her idol to sign and just the thought of seeing him made her heart race. So much, in fact, that she’d started running again to ensure she would definitely not be late. She crossed the street despite the crossing sign with the red standing man lighted up. Looking around for any policeman, she ran down the street.

She squeaked apologies as cars honked furiously at her reckless action as she ran towards the other side. She almost felt panic rise in her when she noticed the train bars begin to lower signaling the subway coming in the way. “Not today!”, she growled as she kicked off her heels and carried them from the straps as she ran as fast as she could. After all, a former soccer player like herself was still just as fast as she used to be as she sprinted down the street.

The bars lowered and she picked up the pace managing to go under them and running past as the subway train began to pass over. She fist pumped the air feeling a sense of victory and she leaned down to set her heels on the floor. She wiped her feet from the light dust and dirt on them and looked around making sure no one had seen her, which she doubted since the street was bustling with people and cars.

Regardless, she strapped back on her heels. She breathed relieved for a few seconds before continuing to run taking a sharp left turn and hitting straight into someone. She fell back with such a force on her bottom that she almost cried from the sting especially from the scrape at the side of her leg when she fell backwards. Out of all things, she just had to go and get herself hurt. She even figured her dress was a little dirty now.

“Shit! Oi, are you okay?! ” a male’s worried voice questioned as he looked around him as if looking out for someone. However, he looked down to her bleeding leg. “Oh, man that was a stupid question”, he huffed embarrassed as he offered to help her up. She wasn’t really angry since he was being so attentive. She took his hand and was shocked with his strength as he picked her up effortlessly. Lucy felt weird though, there she was allowing a complete AND suspicious stranger treat her to some coffee after properly treating her wound. He was wearing a red hoodie and his face was for the most part concealed. That made him even more suspicious, but he had helped her and was now in a public place with her so he would probably not be a danger

“Uh, you really didn’t have to buy me coffee”, she finally interrupted the silence between them. The way his form was positioned gave off an apologetic vibe. “I had to. I did hurt you really bad”, he motioned to her leg which now had a scab where it had healed when he had carefully cleaned it. She felt slightly guilty for making him feel unintentionally responsible.

“I mean, I was running too so it was partially my fault. Thank you, regardless”, she smiled. “Why were you in such a hurry, anyways?” he asked interested in continuing their conversation. She blushed at that trying to formulate the words to say.

“Meeting up a boyfriend?” he chuckled, but she shook her head and crossed her arms defensively. “Definitely not! Er well, I don’t really have one”, she muttered.

“No way! You’re beautiful! How does someone like you, not have a boyfriend?!” he questioned almost outraged and seemed to look away when he realized what he said. The atmosphere became awkward as she answered his previous question. “ W-Well, I was… heading off to Fairy Tail’s meet and greet”, she finally confessed as to which the stranger perked up. “You like soccer? I mean are you going to see the 'hot guys’?” he questioned.

“Well, not really, I mean the guys being hot are a plus, but had they not been handsome I’d still definitely go”, she smiled fondly as leaned on her elbows. “Why?” he followed up.

“Well, I’ve loved soccer and Fairy Tail since I was young. I remembered watching Igneel play when I was younger”, she began to explain before the latter interrupted her. “You knew Igneel?” he questioned startling her. “Yeah! He was one of the reasons I myself played soccer from middle school and high school, but then I just stopped after my father demanded I quit that nonsense and then Igneel retired”, she sighed sadly a longing beginning to show in her voice.

The stranger remained silent and Lucy almost felt he was judging her. “I’m strange, aren’t I? A girl and a girlish one at that who likes soccer. You must be bored”, she sounded apologetic. “ Not at all. I think you’re awesome! But don’t you think it’s waste of time to go to superficial meet and greets?” he questioned. She hummed in thought before giving him a wide smile.

“Of course not. For real fans like myself these events are the world. The players themselves might not realize that it means the world to them. To see the person you admire, your idol, in person, is a dream come true. I’ve always wanted to meet Natsu Dragneel. He was my idol after I first saw him play. His skill on the field is spectacular. The smooth passes, the force of his kick and those rare occasions of corner kicks as they curve beautifully is something I’ve always admired. I have hope that he’ll become the next Igneel. They do have a similar style”, she explained so animatedly.

“You really think so?” he almost muttered. “He’s amazing! Of course, he can. If he keeps playing as passionately as he always does. I believe in him”, she chuckled. “You speak so fondly of him even though you haven’t met him”, he laughed. She blushed furiously. “I k-know, but I feel he loves soccer more than anyone just like me which is why I talk like that”, she sputtered embarrassed.

The stranger just gave a hearty laugh and Lucy felt she really liked it after how reserved he had been at the beginning. “I’m Lucy by the way. Lucy Heartfilia”, she smiled. “Hey, isn’t the meet and over, Lucy?” he asked her and she looked at her iPhone’s clock. Her face immediately deflated, but then she huffed and smiled once more. “Yeah, that’s fine. I had a very enjoyable time regardless. I’m just as content watching them on tv”, she mentioned as she settled to fix her belongings.

“I could still get you to meet the team”, he casually mentioned. The blonde looked at him incredulous. “No way!” she squeaked as her grin widened. He only nodded . “Are you like someone important at the event?!” she asked excitedly as he stood as well. “Uh, you could say that”, he smirked secretively as he guided her out of the shop and down the streets.

“So how come you listened to your father and stopped playing the sport you loved?” he asked her as they walked while he dipped his hands into his jean pockets. “Well, my mother died when I was in my sophomore year of high school and I still played soccer even after that but he guilted me into quitting saying that I had to listen to him in my mother’s stead and so I stopped after I graduated”, she sighed looking straight ahead at nothing in particular.

“If you could play again, would you?” he asked as they finally crossed in front of the establishment of the event. “Many more times again and again.” He smiled lightly as he approached the guard at the door. From his pocket he pulled out a tag and without hesitance was led inside as he motioned for blonde to follow him. He led her down a series of complicated hallways holding her wrist to avoid her from getting lost before they reached a door which had big white letters with the name Fairy Tail on it.

She breathed heavily as she tried containing her excitement. He seemed to sense it as he turned to her. “Ready?” He asked teasingly. “Nope, but really nervous and excited”, she muttered as he finally opened the door. “I’m back”, he drawled really casually. “Damn you! I can’t believe you got away with it, flame brain!” a voice howled as Lucy almost felt she would faint at seeing Gray Fullbuster in front of her. He had black hair and dark blue eyes with firm features.

“Oh my god! Gray Fullbuster”, she whispered as she clutched onto the shoulders of the stranger. Gray blinked as he looked at the blonde. “No way! You brought a girl? This is the end!” Gray laughed as all the players seemed to near them in shock. Lucy felt overwhelmed as she met their 2 of their defenses Jellal and Elfman, numbers 3 and 5, respectively and two of their mid fielders, Loke and Gajeel, numbers 7 and 12, respectively. The rest of their team seemed busy getting their things together.

“Hey what’s your name?” the black haired male asked her. “L-Lucy”, she mumbled.

“Okay, idiots, chill. She’s a huge fan and you guys are scaring her”, Lucy’s companion interrupted. “Didn’t mean to. Nice to meet you, Lucy”, Gray grinned stretching out his hand to shake hers. She grinned as she shook his hand vigorously. She seemed to look around in hopes to find her idol and not finding him.

“Hey Salamander take off that ridiculous hoodie already”, Gajeel motioned annoyed. Lucy noticed that it was awfully hot to be wearing such a thing as she looked at him expectantly. He had to be some sort of manager or maybe even a friend of theirs with the way they spike so casually to him. And by Gray’s words, she was probably be the first girl or even person this man had brought with him to meet them team. She was extremely grateful to him for indulging her so.

“Haven’t properly introduced myself, huh, Lucy?” he smiled at her as she nodded in confusion. This whole time he had been nameless to her and she felt almost ashamed. He grasped the hoodie by its hem as he pulled it off with one pull. His shirt rid up a little and the blonde was shocked to see the glimpse of defined muscles. He threw the red hoodie at Gray who cursed under his breath as he shoved it to the floor. “Stupid”, he mumbled irritated. “Chill, ice princess”, he motioned with a cackle.

Lucy returned to look at her companion after he began to laugh at the black haired male and she felt herself remain speechless at the sight of a handsome face with pink spiky locks, gorgeous smile, and beautiful emerald eyes. He stretched out his hand a large grin still plastered on his face and feeling amused as her face became beet red in both embarrassment and shock. He chuckled lightly as he stretched out his hand to her.

“I really had a good time with you. I’m Natsu Dragneel by the way. Nice to meet you, Lucy.”

Welp that’s the first chapter! I hope you guys liked it. I was really excited to write this sort of au. Please do tell me what you think! And wait up for next chapter!!!

My 1989 Secret Session experience

So, here’s my story about the best day of my life. It all started on Tuesday 7th October when I woke up to an email from Taylor Nation asking to know more about me, I cannot tell you how surprised I was for this email to appear as I had been desperately hoping Taylor would do a UK secret session but of course, I never thought I would actually get picked to go since Taylor has never noticed me online at all - but as I learnt Taylor never liked a post on my Instagram so she could surprise me, can you believe that?! So when I got this email, I was literally screaming with excitement - my mum thought it was because my dog died! 

But to be honest, when I read over the email I honestly didn’t believe it was real and thought someone was playing a sick trick on me. Though, I had some hope from the fact I had read multiple fans secret session stories which said they received a call soon after the Taylor Nation email. 

So this email basically resulted in me literally having my phone glued to my side waiting for a call - to say the least it was stressful because I was so scared they would never call me back if I missed their call. However, on Wednesday I left my phone for just 5 minutes and came back to a missed call which was from Taylor Nation, I then panicked as I kept calling them receiving and was getting no response, but then I finally got called back and I found out the best news of my life: I was being invited to a secret event in London involving Taylor Swift on Friday, 10th October!

On Friday I travelled to London from where I live in Wales, then went to where I was told to meet for the secret event which had the code name of ‘Enchanted Galaxy Party.’ When in the location, I got told to go in to a room full of other Taylor fans, this moment was where it started to sink in: I was soon about to experience a dream sequence of events this night.

In the room full of fans, Taylor’s team checked off we were here, took our belongings from us, and then scanned us (for security and all that). This took at least an hour and I was growing SO anxious about what was to come. But finally, we were told we were going up to a different room following a security guy’s heart-warming speech all about us being chosen specifically by Taylor to come to this event (not gonna lie, he made me cry).

Once we were then taken up in groups to Taylor’s room I was overwhelmed by the lovely looking food set out, however sadly no one ate it! The excitement was too much for anyone to have an appetite I think. So we all quickly went up to the little living room area of the room where there were pillows set up in front of the chair the actual Taylor Swift would soon be sat in.

Then out of nowhere the queen herself, T Swift, walked in the room and I started crying because my inspiration was there, right in front of me. Now what was next was she played her new album 1989 exclusively for us and explained the story behind each song – it was soooo fascinating as being the Taylor worshipper I am what’s better than to hear the meaning behind your favourite artists songs? However, this part of the event I’m not going to go in to much detail about as Taylor trusted us with keeping the album secret and I will for sure not disrespect her. But, oh my god, what I will say is 1989 is the most beautiful, smart, catchy album my ears have ever been blessed with hearing! Yes, I knew 1989 was gonna be good but hearing it finally for myself was a whole new level of amazing and way better than anything she has done it the past. That comment about her other albums being practice is 100% accurate and that’s a big statement since I’m obsessed with all her albums - obviously. I couldn’t stop smiling the whole time whilst hearing it.

Halfway through the album listening session Taylor gave us cookies and cupcakes and shared a cookie with a fan which was extremely cute. Now i’m gonna list some more memorable things I want to mention: 1. Her iPhone lock screen is adorable fan art of her cats 2. Her well know dance moves were amazing and her lip syncing whilst she played us her new song was the best thing to watch,  she’s the cutest 3. Random, but I feel like her hair looks darker in person and she is so petite but crazy, crazy tall, I couldn’t get over it! 4. There is no denying that she’s genuinely the kindest person ever 5. She made a sweet comment thanking us fans for “fighting the battle” when loads of people sent her hate, she mentioned how really people should focus on her music 6. She told us about the “back in the studio uh oh” tweet she made a while back 7. She said how her dream collaboration was once Kanye West and laughed about it 8. Taylor wanted to play the songs louder for us saying “I feel like they can’t even hear it” but wasn’t allowed too cus it would be heard outside her room 9. She mentioned how she likes how these days interviewers are asking her about important things like feminism and not so much about her love life.

Once she played us all the new sons she put on ‘Shake It Off’ and we all got up and had a full on dance party, this was so surreal and for half of the song she was dancing right in front of me, I couldn’t quite believe it!

Then it was time for each one of us to meet Taylor and take the Polaroids. I have never been so happy in my life as when I went up to Taylor and she said “Hi Millie!” Inside I died right there, I couldn’t believe my favourite person in the world knew my name! She said how in my photos on Instagram - which might I add she ‘taylurked’ me on - she thought I looked “beautiful without makeup" in (BEST. COMPLIMENT. EVER). In addition Taylor also said to me how she was glad I could make it to the event since she had to make sure people were actually British by “checking if they put a ‘u’ in colour” and things.  Then, when I hugged Taylor, of course I said how much I love her, how happy she makes me, how she is my favourite person and how ultimately this is the best day of my life, her smile was the most beautiful thing and I have never felt so happy. Then she asked me what pose I wanted to do for our picture together and I said I wanted to do “something cute, you choose” and she suggested lying on the floor “it would be cute, like we are lying on the cold hard ground get it?” Then she led on the floor and I led next to her and I was freaking out inside that the actual Taylor Swift’s face was by mine! Then afterwards, my Mum came up to take a Polaroid with me and Taylor, we talked about my sister and the video Taylor recorded for me when she met my sister, Taylor said “that was for YOU??? Where I sounded creepy right?!” She also said how me and my sister both had pretty names. Then soon it was time to go and she thanked us for coming and for supporting her, I told her “I will support you forever” - ahh she makes me so cheesy. 

It was amazing. I couldn’t believe I had just had a conversation with Taylor, listened to her unreleased album and spent like 4 hours in her hotel room. Yes, life seems unreal right now!

Endless thank you’s Taylor!! I never thought I would ever meet you, I can’t explain how genuinely happy you make me and thankful I am for you, I will never forget that night. I’m in dream land.

So in conclusion, my life has well and truly been made.

A Letter From Mini Vault’s Mom

Wow! Did I have an amazing surprise in my email today. My dear friend, Mini Vault’s Mom (she does have a real name, but for her privacy I keep that to myself. lol), sent me a letter. It’s not really addressed to me specifically, but rather the fandom.

One of the most popular questions on my blog is “Who is Mini Vault?” There is a Mini Vault tag on Something To Live For just a heads up. Mini Vault’s Mom has decided it’s time to tell everyone the WHOLE story. From start to finish. I have to be honest, it was a really fun walk down memory lane as she recalled how we came into one another’s lives and the friendship that’s developed between the two of us and her darling daughter. Especially the early days of our Tumblr messaging problems and my complete lack of chill. lol

I’ve offered some details of how Mini Vault and Stephen’s friendship came to be, but it was always up to MVM to decide what to reveal. I am fiercely protective of their privacy. Before everybody freaks out… NO. Mini Vault has not revealed the spoiler. That will not happen until after 4x23 airs. Trust me. She’s Mini Vault.

I know the protectiveness goes both ways and Mini Vault’s Mom has spent the last couple weeks worrying about me and whether or not I’m getting harrassed. I’m not. I reaasure her not to worry, I am totally fine (and I am) and 99% of the fandom understands the point of this little game Stephen cooked up. 

Still, she wanted to share her story and far be it from me to stand in the way of that. She shares so much her journey with Arrow, her fandom experience, her convention experience and her Stephen Amell experiences in the letter. (It’s really good y’all.) She does offer a little perspective on “the game” we play together all year long, however. Hopefully it will help those enjoy the finale more tomorrow as a result.

I am deeply honoroed to know this woman. She is a 911 Operator. Her day is 100% stress. Most of the time she has no idea if the people she speaks with survive or not. She is an actual life line. A real life hero. Arrow is a way for her to escape and de-stress. Nobody deserves it more. She is also a devoted mother, wise, very funny and has an incredible outlook on life. Basically she’s a beautiful soul through and through. The joy of this blog is that it brings people into my life that I would have never had a chance to get to know. So… if she wants to post something on my blog, yeah she gets to. lol Whatever you wanna say babe. I didn’t trim a word. The blog is yours my friend.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for contacting me and sharing your life with me. You are a treasured friend! Fingers crossed you can go to another convention next year, Stephen shares a spoiler with Mini Vault and we can play the game all over again in Season 5.

Now I am going to attack hug you my friend.

Enjoy the story fandom! It’s a good one. :)
