Jake Peralta: Stepdad!AU

So this was going to be an actual fic, but, alas, any sort of narrative wouldn’t come, so instead allow me to offer a series of (not at all canon-timeline compliant) headcanons about Amy Santiago’s tiny daughter taking Jake in as part of the family:

  • When Amy starts at the Nine-Nine, she is Very Adamant that Jake will never meet Maya, largely because a) He’s the worst, and b) Maya doesn’t need to see her mother curse out a fellow employee, but mostly c) He’s The Worst.
  • Except she only lasts twelve days, at which point Captain McGinley calls her in on her day off because he’s finally realized that his new detective has started and he wants to meet her, even though they have met four (4) times and he’s assigned two cases to her and Jake
    • It’s supposed to be a short meeting and she promises a very teary-eyed Maya that she’ll be real quick, but she needs to go in without Maya because McGinley looks like he might yell for some reason, Amy can just tell, and Sarge isn’t here and Amy barely knows anyone else and Jake offers, basically
    • Maya is just v. v. teary when Amy blows her a quick kiss before entering McGinley’s office
    • The meeting lasts exactly forty-seven minutes
    • Amy expects A Disaster when she gets out, or at the very least a very stressed-out Jake trying to pass her daughter off on someone else
    • But instead Maya is sitting in Jake’s lap with two of his superhero figurines gripped between her sweaty little hands, patiently telling a story while Jake writes on a piece of paper next to her
    • “And then there’s a dragon,” Maya says breathlessly, and Jake nods along patiently
    • “Fire-breathing or bearded?” he offers, and Maya really considers it for a moment before deciding on bearded. “Got it, I’ve jotted that down.”
    • “I thought no one was allowed to touch your dolls?” Amy asks when she gets to them, and she’s a little stressed out about this whole situation because Jake is suddenly, like, a kind person? Who’s been watching her daughter for forty-seven minutes and counting?
    • “Uh, obviously this is Red Metal Man and Mr. Star, okay.”
    • It’s not. It’s Iron Man and Captain America, and Amy can tell because she’s not totally out of the loop of the cultural zeitgeit, okay, and she sometimes pays attention to movie posters and has very definitely seen at least two of the superhero movies
    • “Plus I believe I said no Santiagos, and that was back before I knew there was a cool Santiago in the clan.”
    • Maya, meanwhile, has grabbed a pen off of Jake’s desk and is now leaning precariously over said desk and drawing on some of the large blank spaces Jake had left on the paper
    • And Amy realizes that Jake was writing down Maya’s story but made sure there was room so she could draw
    • Jake grins at her sheepishly, braces Maya with one hand on her back to make sure she doesn’t slip, and says, “It’s her vision, and she’s, like, a really good storyteller.”
    • Amy swoons, but in a low-key, subtle way. Probably.
    • Anyway, but Jake is also The Worst, so it doesn’t matter

High school reunion AU for @zimmbitty who planted the idea in my head. I hope my loss sleep makes you happy.

-

An AU where Jack and Bitty happened to go to the same high school for maybe a year or two. (Here their age difference is around 3 years.)

How you ask? Coach is filling in temporarily maybe not as a Football coach but in some other position. It doesn’t matter *waves hands to misdirect from possible plot holes* just go with it…

Bitty is still into figure skating and in this high school, they have an actual ice skating ring in the premises!!!

And his skating lessons are usually before the hockey team plays. At first, he avoids the team but slowly realises they didn’t really care what he did so long as he left the ice on time.

Then Bitty started watching the practices and hockey looked kind of fun, (if you ignored the checking…) and maybe if he got into hockey he and Coach would have more stuff in common to talk about.

So one day after hockey practice is over, Bitty sneaks back into the ice with a broken hockey stick he found in the dumpster and put back together with duct tape and a flatted out can, and starts trying to get a hang of how the sport works.

anonymous asked:

Hey, you're German, right? I've got a huge favour to ask of you. I've been studying German for a few years, and I plan on studying there for a year. Before that, I wanna improve my language skills, so I've been wondering if you could tell me about some good original German movies? I don't want to watch dubbed ones, I've heard they're horrible. Thank you so much! Love your blog, by the way.

Dubbed movies aren’t actually half bad - at least to movies dubbed in other languages. Trust me, I’ve watched both Spanish and French dubbed movies, they were way worse. This is what we like to call “Jammern auf hohem Niveau” - complaining even though everything is pretty good. You’ll find that Germans are a people of complainers; we like to complain about everything. We are never content :) 

Still, I’m really really excited that you’re interested in my culture and HELL YES THERE ARE A BUNCH OF AWESOME GERMAN MOVIES. Here are some highly acclaimed ones and some of my favourites, I hope all links work. 

  • 12 Meter ohne Kopf (a movie about a German pirate, who allegedly walked 12 meters after being beheaded in order to save his crew)
  • Auf der anderen Seite (a really bautiful sort of episodic movie connecting the lives of three families, both German and Turkish)
  • Barfuss (a movie about a girl suffering from PTSD, who is saved mostly accidentally from committing suicide by a dude cleaning the clinic she is in, and then follows him around everywhere, and they fall in love. Seriously, onely one of two movies by Til Schweiger worth watching)
  • Buddenbrooks (the story of a very rich merchant family and their downfall…a really famour book adaptation)
  • Das Boot (a movie about a German submarine and its crew during World War II. 100& must-see)
  • Das Experiment (A movie about a psychology experiment in prison, and how people react when given free reign over others. This should come with a huge trigger warning. It’s awesome, but also really super disturbing)
  • Das Leben der Anderen (You might’ve heard of that one, since it received an Oscar. It deals with surveillance in East Germany, and is, also, a must-see).
  • Das weiße Band (A movie about the oppressive and rigid society pre-World War I children grew up in.)
  • Das Wunder von Bern (This movie mixes the football world championships of 1954 (soccer for heathens who call other stuff football) and the story of a family that has to re-learn to live with each other when the father comes home after being a war captive for like…12 years MUST SEE)
  • Der Baader Meinhof Komplex (movie about famous German left extremists, the RAF and their terrorist attacks)
  • Der Schuh des Manitu (THE single best German comedy to ever exist. It makes fun of Cowboy movies/books that are super popular in Germany. You’ll cry of laughter seeing Native Americans with a Bavarian accent - which also means your language level should be really high, or you won’t understand a thing. Uh, obviously don’t watch if you think white comedians playing Native Americans is racist even when it’s satire)
  • Der Untergang (the last days in thr life of Adolf Hitler. You’ll probably have heard of that one, too. MUST SEE)
  • Die Blechtrommel (God, I don’t know how to describe this one. Basically, a movie about a child who decides he doesn’t want to grow anymore and observes the world of the adults around him?)
  • Die Fälscher (again, dealing with World War II, and people in concentration camps who were tasked with copying money of other countries)
  • Die fetten Jahre sind vorbei (a movie about three rebels who break into rich people’s houses only to rearrange their furniture and tell them to revise their morals - until one of them catches them in the act and they abduct him for a weekend. MUST SEE)
  • Die Feuerzangenbowle (THE classic movie. about the German school system. An older guy pretending to be a student at an elite high school. Also gave the name to a drink you will find a lot on Christmas markets)
  • Effie Briest (another novel adaptation about a young woman whose marriage is arranged and who loses everything when she cheats on her husband)
  • Ein Freund von mir (two guys who are completely different building a very strange friendship)
  • Elementarteilchen (about the lives of two brothers who were separated after birth, and the completely different lives they lead)
  • Fack Ju Göhte (no links yet, it only came out last year, a new comedy about the German school system, and absolute must-see, if you happen to find a link one day)
  • Gegen die Wand (a Turkish girl fake-marrying a German addict in an attempt to escae her family. MUST SEE)
  • Goodbye Lenin (a beautiful movie/comedy about a family and the German reunification. MUST SEE)
  • Im Winter ein Jahr (a family dealing with the loss of their son/brother)
  • Kabale und Liebe (a superb adaptation of Schiller’s play. bsjdhkdjk)
  • Kebab Connection (…I don’t even know how to describe this movie. Just watch it. Very multi/transcultural and hilarious)
  • Keinohrhasen (a douche has to do community service at a kindergarten - and finds that the girl he used to bully as a kid is now his superior. uh-oh. It’s super funny)
  • Kirschblüten - Hanami  (a dude travelling to Japan to understand and be close to his late wife) 
  • Lola rennt ( a movie about a couple in a dangerous situation - and three possible outcomes)
  • Schiller (ah boy, this was a TV production, so I couldn’t find a link. A brilliant movie about the life of Germany’s best playwright, if you ask me)
  • Soul Kitchen (a comedy about a guy trying to keep his restaurant afloat and keeping his brother out of a life of petty crime)
  • Sophie Scholl - die letzten Tage (a movie about the last days in the life of Sophie Scholl and her brother, who were part of the resistance against the Nazis)
  • Vincent will Meer (a guy with tourette syndrom, a girl with an eating disorder and a guy with OCD break out of their psychiatric clinic to go to the sea. MUST SEE)
  • Was nützt die Liebe in Gedanken? ( a movie based on a real story, about a group of teenagers vowing to commit suicide once they do not feel any love anymore)
  • Wer früher stirbt ist länger tot (a comedy about a kid who does a lot of nonsense and when told that he is the reason his mother dies, blames himself, feares that he has to go to hell, and tries to make up for his sins by finding his dad a new wife. Hilarious. Again, tho, super strong Bavarian accent, beware!)

And if you want to watch a few good German TV-shows:

  • Türkisch für Anfänger (ABSOLUTE MUST SEE TV SERIES OMG WATCH IT!!! It deals with a German-Turkish patchwork family and it is hilarious)
  • Tatort Münster (basically a procedural crime show. There are a lot of Tatorts, but this is the only one that is always good. you’ll find a lot of the episodes on youtube)
  • Der letzte Zeuge (a show about a coroner solving crimes)

Summary: Stiles just wants something to take with him to college. Something special.

Notes: I’ve been wanting to poke fun at this inconsistency in the show for a while, and I finally wrote it! Just another excuse for a little fluff and humor. (On AO3)


Derek grabs a few of Stiles’ heaviest boxes (but not enough to be suspicious, who knows if the neighbors are watching), and slides them into the back of the jeep with the rest of Stiles’ college “essentials.” He’d said he was only taking the bare minimum, but Derek is beginning to doubt that.

At this rate, they’re going to have to pack some stuff in the Camaro, too.

PUNK!STAN + NERD!BILL AU

i’m working on shit i swear, this is just for the wait. 

HERE WE GO

  • Stan, Richie, Mike, and Bev are the punks.
  • Eddie, Stan, and Ben are the “nerds”
  • Stan is very intimidating with his leather jacket and his boots, but he’s a fucking softie.
  • Bill knows this.
  • They got paired for an assignment in history freshman year. Stan was pissed he didn’t get Mike (because my son is a genius!) but when he saw how cute Bill was he dropped it.
  • Bill was expecting to do the whole thing himself, but Stan was very helpful and did his part.
  • Bill was lowkey embarrassed about his stutter because HE was used to it and so were his friends, but he was scared Stan was gonna make fun of him for it
  • He didn’t (much to Bill’s surprise)
  • Richie kept teasing Stan because of how much he talked about Bill.
  • But Stan could do the same thing with him and Eddie
  • Bev is a lesbian!
  • Mike has a little crush on Ben
  • After the project was over, Stan still sat next to Bill.
  • And talked to him
  • And hung out with him.
  • They’re like real friends
  • That occasionally flirt
  • and are constantly touching each other
  • but whatever, moving on
  • BECAUSE they hung out so much that meant that their crews hung out too
  • No one was complaining, everyone had a crush on everyone (except for Bev, of course. she was crushing on the head cheerleader)
  • This goes on until the summer before junior year (YOU ARE SIXTEEN GOING ON SEVENTEEN, BABY ITS TIME TO THINK -Bill, to which Stan replies: You’re a Fucking Dork, Denbrough)
  • They’re hanging out at the Denbrough household, watching a movie n stuff
  • There are no parents because they have jobs  (Not everyone can have a summer break, Billiam -Stan)
  • Now, contrary to popular belief, Bill kisses Stan first.
  • stan is shook
  • But we all know Derry is a piece of shit town, so as much as they want to be open about their relationship (as much as Stan wants to show Bill off) they can’t
  • Bill’s parents are convinced Stan replaced Eddie as Bill’s best friend
  • “What do they think we’re doing in your room all the time?”
  • “Studying.”
  • “Seriously?”
  • Makeout sessions start two (2) weeks after they first kiss
  • It’s intense
  • School starts back up again and they barely have any classes together (What the Fuck -Stan)
  • They see each other in between classes though
  • THEY MAKE EYE CONTACT AND STAN SMIRKS WHICH MAKES BILL BLUSH AND ITS THE CUTEST THING EVER, OK.
  • Bill starts getting antsy during class and even Eddie is like “Bro, chill tf out”
  • Bill doesn’t fucking know why until he sees Stan and immediately calms down
  • “I’m h-having Stan withdrawls???”
  • “That’s fucking adorable”
  • “Sh-Shut up, b-bird boy”
  • “Hush, Denbrough”
  • lots of hand holding
  • and kissing when no one is around
  • BILL SKIPPED CLASS JUST TO BE AROUND STAN AND MR. STANLEY LOST IT
  • “Bill, seriously. You don’t have to skip class, we could’ve just waited it’s fine.”
  • “N-No, it’s b-basically a free p-period anyways. I w-w-wanna be here”
  • Stan’s whipped™
  • Bev won’t let him live it down! Stan is whipped!
  • Mike doesn’t give a shit, he never has, really. As long as stan’s happy.
  • Richie’s a prick at first, but Stan really is his best friend and he knows he’s really in deep with Bill so he doesn’t say much.
  • BUT WHEN HE DOES.. BOY.
  • Ok but there was one day, Bill’s stutter was super bad for some reason. He thought it was getting better but that day was not good.
  • He doesn’t talk much that day and Stan gets really worried.
  • When Bill finally tells him what’s going on (in the middle of their makeout session because Stan won’t stop asking if he’s ok) Stan tells him that his stutter is adorable, and that he was sure it was just Bill’s nerves.
  • BILL GIVES HIM THE SOFTEST HEART EYES EVER before they start making out again.
  • But then they go and have lunch with everyone and Bill is stuttering so bad over his words. Stan is squeezing his hand underneath the table, but it’s not helping much.
  • And then Richie goes “Just spit it out, b-b-bill.”
  • Bev smacks the shit out Richie’s arm
  • Eddie does the same with his head.
  • Mike and Ben are fr glaring at him.
  • Stan’s ready to murder him with the spork he got in the lunchline
  • Bill stops talking for the day.
  • Stan doesn’t speak to richie for the rest of the week.
  • “That was fucked up, Richie.” -Eddie
  • “What do you want me to do, Eds? Apologize? Bill probably hates me—“
  • “Don’t call me Eds, and yes! that’s what I’ve been telling you to do for days now!”
  • Stan crawls through Bill’s window at night so he can hold his boyfriend
  • Stan won’t tell him that his dad usually screams at him for being a disgrace to the family.
  • DW, Bill will find out soon enough.
  • Bill hasn’t spoken much, not even with Stan and he is BEYOND PISSED at Richie.
  • “I’m really sorry about Richie, Bill.”
  • “I-It’s not your f-fault, and h-he didn’t mean a-anything by it.”
  • STAN JUST WANTS TO HEAR HIS BOYFRIEND’S VOICE OK
  • also, they haven’t actually called each other boyfriends and they’ve been dating for eight months so
  • “N-No, I know. I just– I just know how he can be.”
  • “I’m fine, Stan.”
  • Bill really was fine about that, he was just stressed because of school.
  • Stan is a few inches taller than Bill (6’0”, while Bill is chilling at 5’10”)
  • which means Bill is the little spoon :)
  • Stan absolutely loves having Bill so close to him. It helps him and Bill sleep because it’s so warm and comfortable, and with his arm around him he feels like he can protect Bill from everyone and everything.
  • And that’s all he wants to do
  • Richie does apologize to Bill, to which Bill says he really didn’t mind (it was mostly Stan)
  • Onto The Next
  • Stan slowly starts wearing brighter colors (i.e the pastels + white)
  • “You’ve gone soft, Stanny Boy” -Bev
  • “Shut the fuck up, Beverly”
  • “I think you look great.” -Mike
  • “That’s gay!” -Richie
  • “Beep Beep, Richie!” -Bev, Stan, and Mike.
  • “I was growing fond of the leather jackets.” -Bill.
  • “It’s too hot for that, Denbrough.”
  • Now, it’s pretty clear how overprotective Stan is of Bill, but Mr. Denbrough is just as bad as he is.
  • Girls flirting with Stan? Issa no from Bill.
  • BUT HE CAN’T DO ANYTHING IN PUBLIC IT SUCKS
  • So it just leads to a very heated makeout later.
  • BOYS flirt with Stan? (yeah, it’s happened) Count Billiam is alive and well.
  • Seriously! the love bites that boy leaves, whew.
  • And stan didn’t give a shit whether or not his dad saw them.
  • “Bill, they’re everywhere. You can stop.”
  • “I’ll st-stop a-as soon as I-I can say h-he’s my f-fucking boyfriend ou-outloud.”
  • “Then do it.”
  • “Stan..”
  • “Do you care anymore?”
  • HE DOESNT. HE REALLY DOESNT GIVE A SHIT BECAUSE HE’S SO FUCKING HAPPY WITH STAN.
  • “N-No”
  • The biggest smile breaks out on the curly haired jewish boys face oh my GOD
  • “Great, I don’t either”

The bond in between siblings is the strongest to exist, that’s what they all say. That also went for Y/N and Yoongi, the two half siblings, who shared the same father but different mothers. The two lived with their dad and her mother in Korea’s capital: Seoul.

Some would’ve guess based on their different mums, that they didn’t get along too well, but that was the exact opposite of reality. They had been inseparable from the day Y/N was born, the day Yoongi knew that this little human being was going to be the most important person to him, that he had to take care of her and protect her, no matter what.

During their childhood, the things he had to protect her from were the monsters under her bed, the darkness at night or the scary looking shadow in her room.

As they grew older, the two remained as close as siblings could be, yet they don’t see each other as often anymore. Due to both of their busy schedules, as Y/N goes to university and Yoongi, has a group to promote. Yes, his dream of making music did come true and yes, he was really successful with his six other group members. Today, Y/N is going to visit him and his friends as they had a day off and she was on fall break.

Request and details we chatted: AH! Au where lightning and sally adopt Cruz. Jackson storm and Cruz have been dating for a while much to lightning’s protest. Cruz tells lightning that Jackson broke up with her and lightning literally chases him out of radiator springs cuz he’s protective and angry and later when he checks up on her he’s all like: “I’m not perfect, but I’m trying my hardest to do everything to keep you safe.”

Like, cruz’s family didn’t approve of her racing at all so lightning was all like “fine, if you won’t be there for her as a family then I will” and BAM. We’ve got ourselves a dad.

Pretty much spoilers. 

I have a tagline or whatever u wanna call it for this fic.

How far would you go to protect the daughter you never had?

I love this.

Anyways.

Word Count: 9,596 words(crapp)

Warnings: Mild cussing(hell, damn, asses, b*tch said once around mid-end), negligent parents, bad parenting, parent abusiveness scene, breakup mention/talk , past death remembering/flashbacks/dreams, beating/death scene

This starts three weeks after Cars 3

Color references are from color thesaurus pics(google ‘em)

To me, a nuzzle against the fender is kinda the equivalent of a hug in the instances of this story. 

Enjoy this, I had so much fun and effort into thiss!!! I’m so proud of this work, guys, I just…if you want to, read it!!

VROOM.

Two cars. Exact same pace. Sounded exactly like one sound. 

VRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

Lightning and Cruz raced at exactly 198 mph down a flat road. The breeze went shooting by them, and the enormous, doming blue sky above them was cloudless and still with the sun giving out light. 

It was Cruz’s idea, really. It turned out that she was that type of car who liked to race around at eight in the morning when it was sunny out. Lightning usually wasn’t, but it was sunny and Cruz wanted to go, so. 

“Hey, you’re keeping up, old man!”

“I’m not an old man, Cruz!” Lightning protests against his racing apprentice. “I’ve done 198 before! You saw it at Fireball beach!”

“Yeah yeah,” Cruz replies before she smirks. “Old man.”

Lightning mildly groans at her persistence. But he then heard a beeping sound. Cruz stopped beside him. She was receiving a phone call through Hamilton. “Gotta answer this phone call real quick. You mind?”

“I don’t mind,” Lightning replies as Cruz drove maybe ten feet the other way to answer the call. 

Lightning watched her from the ten feet distance between the two answer her phone call. At first, she seemed perfectly fine, but then her expression started to grow what seemed to be…sad? Um, nervous, maybe? Something that he couldn’t exactly describe. Like there was something she didn’t want to face. 

“Yeah…Okay, I could be there tomorrow or Sunday…Tomorrow? …As soon as I can is tomorrow because I have to practi-…”

Lightning was absolutely perplexed at the conversation. She was being pressured to go somewhere soon. If it was a race, Lightning would’ve known. Home, maybe? 

Cruz sighed, suddenly. “I could leave late tonight and get there really early in the morning, but I don’t know if you’d like tha-……Wait, how long? I have two big races next week and I need the practice for it-”

Lightning could hear sudden yelling from the phone, and he could see the near-invisible cringe Cruz gave out. “I’ll see what I can work out, but just let me get there first and-..Goodbye, Dickson….Fine. Goodbye, Dad.” 

The world stopped. 

Her dad was threatening her like that?

Cruz, not really realizing he was paying that much attention, drove back over to him. “My family wants me to go home for a few days, talk, and stuff.” She tried to put it plainly, but Cruz was honestly terrified inside. 

“Seems like a bit more than ‘talk, and stuff’. Cruz, he was yelling.”

“Yeah he was, Mr. Nosy, and that’s just what he does!” She partially lied. He did yell a lot, but there was more to it.

“I wasn’t being really nosy, he was being redundantly loud!” He argues. 

Cruz exhales. “I need to leave later tonight. So we should probably drive some more, a few laps at Willy’s Butte. I’ll probably do some workout later to stretch out.”

Lightning just slowly nods. “Okay…” He says. But then, he has an idea that would make him feel a lot better. His face brightens up when he starts to say. “I could come with you, if you want. You wouldn’t have to travel alone.”

“Oh no, that’s okay, Mr. McQueen! My parents don’t really like strangers, anyways, so that would not be good,” Cruz says quickly in a blurting way. She had mostly ignored every time he told her to call him Lightning. 

Lightning sees that she is trying to put on a very sure face about going tonight to see her parents in Texas. But it just wasn’t…right. 

Lightning exhaled. “Okay. Let’s keep going.” They started off on the road again under the sky. Everything else seemed right, but not with Cruz. And he wouldn’t let it be that way. 


They went back into town, an hour later, and Cruz went to workout or pack or do whatever she was doing. 

Lightning went back to see Sally at their house, though. He was pretty concerned. He didn’t know anything about Cruz’s past or family, really. He barely really knew anything about her, really in some perspectives. Lightning had only known her for three weeks, now. He knew she was tough, fast, sweet, and was becoming a bit more confident because of all the new racing and everything. He was happy to see her confidence, racing-resilience, and her own jubilant smile. It was what he wanted for her. 

Sally noticed Lightning come into the house instantly. “Hey, Stickers!”

“Hey, Sal.” There was something different, though, about the way he was at this very moment. Her mind instantly assumed Cruz, he knew how much he cared about her. To Sally, it was actually a bit cute. 

“Is it Cruz?”

Lightning blinked, thinking to first ask her why she thought it was that, but he didn’t. Instead, he answered her because he felt he needed to let out. 

“Apparently her dad called her, and wanted her to come home to Texas for a few days. And by how I heard them talk, they do not have a good relationship.”

Sally frowned. Well that wasn’t good…

“Her dad was yelling at her, and stuff-she even called him by his first name before she called him Dad-something bad made that happen I don’t want her approaching a car who could hurt her.”

Sally drove over from what she was doing merely a minute ago to Lightning. “When was she leaving?”

“She originally planned tomorrow or Sunday, but her dad pressured her to go tonight, so I think she’s packing or working out or something.”

Sally nodded. 

“And you know, I offered to go with her so she wouldn’t travel alone. She said ‘oh no, that’s okay, my parents don’t like strangers anyways’.”

Sally was weirded out, now. “Parents don’t like strangers”? Uh…

“Sally. Something’s wrong.” 

Sally nods. “Yeah, I agree.”

“Good, we should go with her.”

“What?!” Sally exclaims. 

“Yup.”

“Stickers, I understand that you’re paranoid-”

“I have a right to be paranoid!” Lightning interrupts in justification. “What if they hurt her, or keep her from racing, I’m not going to let them do that to her.”

Sally is about to open her mouth again, but is cut off sharp. 

“What if they don’t want her racing-what if that’s it? What if they hurt her and she tries to race and she crashes-what if she crashes-what if-” Lightning rambled. 

“Stickers! Slow downn!” Sally urges. She hadn’t seen her husband in a rut like this before for someone. Cruz had brought a lot of firsts when it came to caring about someone. 

“Sally, I’m serious. We can just stay at a hotel, stay around, see if she calls-”

“Why don’t we just offer again?”

Lightning was about to open his mouth, but Sally shut him down with a look and some seconds of quiet. 

True.

sidney crosby // new girl in cole harbor

requested by @teenagekittentriumph

warnings: mostly none, sexual implications

who: sidney crosby x reader

premise: Sidney takes you home to meet the family and you have to face your fears

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Today should have been absolutely perfect. The weather was beautiful, not too humid for early August with just the right amount of breeze, and the world was practically smiling around you. It was Sidney’s 29th birthday as well as your four month anniversary, and you got to spend the entire day by his side. It should have been perfect, but you were absolutely scared out of your mind.

Not Letting You Win

Request: Can you do a Jamie Benn imagine where he’s your husband and you have 4 kids ages 6 months, 2 years, 4 years, and a 6-year-old. You decide to surprise Jamie at the NHL media day with your kids. Super fluff and sweet and then once he’s finished he brings his family out for pizza and icecream.

A/N: IDK, man. I think it’s fluffy?

Word Count: 1204

Warnings: None. (I think.)


You tried to keep all the boys together. Tired being the key word. Because as soon as you walked into the building. JT was the first to find someone he’d rather be with and run. Of course, you trusted Tyler, who was JT’s favourite, but you brought the kids to surprise Jamie.

Jaxon was next. At only 4, he already decided he wanted to be a goalie. Ben, who was traded to Dallas in 2017, adored the boy and didn’t mind him following him around.

Roussel was the next to borrow a child. Jeremy was 2 and quickly became fond of the Frenchman who would make funny faces for him.

You shrugged. You weren’t going to complain about having the majority of your children being looked after. Not when you had a 6-month-old baby to look after. Jace was the most recent addition to your family. A happy accident. You transferred him to the other hip and began the search for your husband.

Headcanons for a smol S/O pulling the Voltron characters into a dance?

this is so cute i’m d y i ng. enjoy!

Lance:

> He would definitely be down to dance and knowing him, he’d catch onto whatever his s/o is trying to do pretty quickly. He’d try to lead and it actually works out in his favor which he loves.

> He’d dance for hours and hours on end, only stopping/leaving whenever his partner would get tired. He’d grab the two some water afterwards bc it’s good to stay hydrated!

> Once they both get some more energy built back up this time it’s his turn to pull them into a dance. It’s full of bubbly laughter and rosy cheeks. 

> He would teach them certain dances he’s learned throughout life and hypes them up whenever they start to use their hips and really get into it.

> Lance has the most lovestruck look on his face whenever they turn around and start dancing on their own, leaving him to watch. It warms his heart that they love to dance so much (especially with him) and he even sneaks in a few videos to watch later on because he finds it to be all too cute.

Pidge:

> She would be beyond embarrassed because she’s never really learned how to dance before. Well, she wasn’t one to turn down her s/o so easily and she wasn’t about to do it now either. 

> At first she’s awkward with it, only stepping side to side to the beat of the music and maybe moving her arms a little bit. But her s/o comes up and starts teaching her how to do.. something. She couldn’t remember the name but it involved a lot of jumping and spinning.

> Even though she’s a part of the legendary defenders of the universe, she got tuckered out after about fifteen minutes of dancing and had to sit down for a minute. 

> Pidge would simply watch her s/o keep dancing to whatever song was playing as she watched with a tired smile on her face. She would sneak away for a minute or two to grab some water, maybe a snack, and offer them to her adorable s/o. 

> She would make sure that they got their fill of dancing no matter how long it lasted. It could have been hours they were both jumping around or her sitting and watching but she enjoyed every single second of it because it always warms her heart whenever she gets to see her s/o just being themself. She knows she sucks at dancing but she wouldn’t change that night for the world.

Shiro:

> He wouldn’t really understand what’s going on at first but after seeing his s/o so into the music, he knew that he could bust a move or two. They ended up teasing him about being a true ‘Space Dad’ for his older dancing style but he teased them right back. 

> He would hide the fact that he already knows how to dance pretty well because he didn’t feel like pulling a muscle so he sticks to his dad dancing and has fun with his partner.

> At one point they both wind up doing the sprinkler together and then get a little more hip-hop mix to their dancing. They most definitely do the kid and play.

> Shiro would find himself dancing for house without stopping with his s/o and he would sneakily take their phone to put on some slow music so they could have a more intimate dance together. It isn’t sexual or anything, just them holding each other sweetly and moving in smooth circles.

> That’s the moment when he rests his chin on their head and keeps them as close as possible. They don’t get times alone like this too often so he was damn sure he was going to get every little drop of it he could. He finds himself the happiest when he spends time with his s/o and he doesn’t say it often, but, actions always speak louder than words. Shiro would always let his emotions show through his body language, for example, slow dancing and tender kisses.

Hunk:

> He’s so used to Lance doing the same thing that as soon as he hears the music and feels his s/o grab him, he knows immediately what the fuck is goin on. For some reason he’s only able to bust dance moves from the 90′s.

> His favorites are the roger rabbit and the butterfly and SOMEHOW he makes an amazing combination at the two that makes his s/o laugh because it looks silly but kinda cool.

> About halfway through the fourth or fifth song he’d get really tired and kinda just lean onto his s/o for support while they’re still dancing. They move his arms for him and they both have to stifle their laughter. 

> After they’re done dancing he’d pull them to the kitchen and start making a surprise dish for them. They’d put on music and the dancing sequence starts all over again.

> Pidge would walk into the kitchen in the middle of it and record them for a minute or two before sloooowly backing out of the doorway with a sneaky smile on her face. Hunk wouldn’t even notice her presence because he’s too busy dancing, cooking, and overall having a fun time with his partner. After he’s done cooking he does a little moonwalk over to them to present it and it ensues more laughter before they dig in happily.

Keith:

> He would literally stand there if he was pulled into something because he’s danced like twice in his entire lifetime and he feels really bad that he isn’t sure of what to do with his s/o.

> They understand but they teach him little things that he can definitely get into like a small two step. He shyly asks if they can teach him some more and the day turns from being a dance party to dancing 101.

> Keith would get the hang of certain things after just watching them but there were other moves that completely baffled the poor boy and his s/o would have to cover their giggle with a cough or fake sneeze. He would try to leave multiple times, obviously embarrassed, but they convince him to stay.

> He would be glad that it’s only the two of them because he knew he wouldn’t hear the end of it from the team. Eventually he let’s the music take over and it turns out he’s not that bad of a dancer after all.

> Keith would get more into dancing after that and it even turns out to be him pulling his s/o into a dancing/singing montage with a brush as a microphone and a broom as a dance partner before they join together. He does a l o t of lifting for some reason and when asked why, he admits he’s been watching dance videos in his free time because he felt inspired by his cute s/o’s encouragement. The two end up all blushy, embarrassed, but ultimately happy that they can be goofy like this together.

Allura:

> She would b u s t a f u c k i n g move so quick oh my god it would be surprising to her significant other to see her get super carefree and loose within .2 seconds. 

> She wouldn’t get tired for some reason??? It frightens her partner that when they need to sit down to catch their breath, she only encourages them and begs them to get back up to keep dancing with her and they do it even though they’ll feel All The Pain later on.

> Allura would do a lot of graceful yet forceful dancing that reminds her s/o of ballet but it has different, more warrior-like undertones to it and they get so caught up watching her that they forget to dance at all. 

> She ends up admitting she took dance lessons as a child before things began to change and she always found it to be one of her many many passions. She got distracted by taking down that Galra Empire that she never danced anymore.

> The Princess and her significant other would take breaks often for themselves as well as the rest of the team to have a bit more free time in between training and battles. The two would go off somewhere and dance together, mostly them watching her or her teaching them something but it was still them being with each other nonetheless. They enjoy it and the stress of each battle washes away with it as well and she’s deeply appreciative of them bringing out this passion within her once again.

Fic Update: Any Four Walls: Cool Aunt

Heyyy, why not update a story I haven’t updated in more than a year while everyone is off playing new game? *finger guns*

(In all seriousness, sorry for the long delay. I don’t anticipate one NEARLY as long again. This chapter sets up an arc I’ve had in my head for years!)

On AO3

Cool Aunt

After three hours spent as sole caregiver to her brother’s daughters, Solana was beginning to have serious doubts about her own suitability as a parent, which made her current state of impending motherhood all the more terrifying. No going back now. Not even if she was having sudden visions of just how woefully underprepared she was. And she was. In vivid color.

Taking the girls off their parents’ hands for a day had seemed like such a good idea at the time. Step one to reaching coveted cool aunt status. Girls day out. Or in. Something. Fun. Definitely fun.

To be honest, she hadn’t actually thought that far ahead when she made the offer.

Garrus had an itinerary of political obligations as long as his arm, which only made Solana shudder and wonder how she could ensure her own position in the Hierarchy rose no further than it was already. Though Shepard had been perfectly willing to stay and entertain the children, Garrus did not disguise how much he wanted her with him. More than that, Solana knew they were far more effective a team when working together, especially when it came to fighting for things they believed in. Solana wasn’t privy to the details, but whatever it was they were dealing with now left a grim expression on her brother’s face whenever he thought no one was looking. Shepard’s wasn’t much better.

While arguing with one or the other of them was possible, when they presented a unified front, Sol wasn’t sure they’d ever actually failed. Being on kid-duty for a day seemed a small price to pay, if it helped relieve some of the tension lurking beneath her brother’s plates or in the furrowed cant of Shepard’s human brows.

Off they’d gone, and with them Naxus and her father to their respective work, leaving Solana in possession of two sleepy girls and many hours to fill. The sleepiness had worn off after breakfast, replaced by the kind of frenetic activity Solana usually associated with a firefight. Or stims. Or stims during a firefight.

And that was only hour one.

Clint and (Y/N) had been married for quite some time when they had decided to get divorced. It wasn’t like they wanted to get divorced, it just seemed to work better for the both of them. Clint was mostly at the Avenger compound while (Y/N) was at home with the kids. It put a lot of strain on the both of them causing lots of bickering and fights which resulted in more separation.

(Y/N) and their two kids had basically become family to the Avenger, whenever they could, they’d stop by to hang out with the superheroes. (Y/N) was glad that the group of superheroes still accepted them after the divorce but it still hurt because they were secretly still in love with Clint.

It was more Clint who wanted the divorce and Natasha was the only one who knew about their secret love. (Y/N) acted strong on the outside but was quite heartbroken about the whole ordeal. They could only sit and watch as Clint continued on with his life.


(Y/N) puts on a bright smile as they enter onto the common level of the Avenger’s tower. The two kids at their side instantly run to Clint who hops off the couch to greet the two excited kids. (Y/N) watches the small exchange with a sad smile when they meet Clint’s eyes.

Clint walks over giving them a small hug. “Hey, how are you doing?”

(Y/N) nods their head gently in thought, forcing a smile. “I’m doing good. Thanks for asking and I hope you’re doing well.”

Clint gives a nod just as Natasha walks over with her classic smirk across her face. “I was beginning to wonder when you were going to come visit me again.” Natasha says as she holds open her arms and (Y/N) chuckles before meeting her for a hug.

“For you, anytime.” (Y/N) effortlessly smiles out as they give the redhead a tight hug.

Clint excuses himself as he joins his kids and the rest of the group and Natasha’s smile slowly fades as she looks at (Y/N). “So, how are you really doing?”

(Y/N) emits a sigh as they turn to glance over at their two kids and ex-husband. “The kids miss their dad and I’m dealing but it hasn’t been easy.” (Y/N) pauses a moment looking at their feet. “I really miss him.”

Natasha sends a sympathetic look towards (Y/N), placing a reassuring hand on their back. “I know he doesn’t act like it but he still cares about you and I’ll always be here if you need me.”

“Thank you, Nat. I really appreciate it.”

“Hey, (Y/N), are you busy on Friday?” Tony yells from across the room where he sits on the couch and (Y/N) purses their lips in thought.

“I don’t think so… why?” (Y/N) questions.

“I’m having a party Friday and I would love it if you joined us.” Tony smiles out and all eyes are on (Y/N) and they give a nervous chuckle.

“I don’t know, Tony. I’m not much of a partier.” (Y/N) responds honestly but also thinking it would be their first Stark party without Clint at their side.

A series of disappointed groans emit from the team. “Come on! It’ll be fun, I promise!” Tony encourages, giving a small pouty face and Natasha lightly elbows their side.

“Come for me, I need someone to chat to beside these yahoos.” (Y/N) chuckles, shaking their head as they give into the invitation.

“Alright, I’ll come.” (Y/N) watches as all of the team breaks out in smiles at their acceptance and they think maybe it would be good for them to loosen up a bit.


It’s Friday night and (Y/N) is dresses to the nines as they enter onto the common area once again but it’s decorated and filled with people. They politely maneuver around people as they search for someone they know before running into Steve.

“Hey (Y/N)! You look great.” Steve greets with a soft smile and (Y/N) returns it.

“Hey Steve, you don’t look too bad yourself.” They say gesturing to his suit. “Have you seen Natasha?”

“The last time I saw her she was with Wanda and Bruce near the bar.” (Y/N) gives a thankful nod before heading over to the bar area where they spot the familiar redhead talking with Wanda and Bruce.

“There you are! I was hoping you were still coming.” Natasha greets with a hug and (Y/N) chuckles before greeting the other two.

“Trust me, I’m only here for you and a couple of drinks.” Natasha laughs but gives a small shrug of her shoulders as she sips from the drink in her hand.  

“Can’t say I blame you.”

The night goes pretty smoothly, chatter and laughter fills the room and (Y/N) stays close to Natasha. They chat for a while before they merge with Sam, Rhodey, Tony and Clint. It’s friendly conversation until a few women past by them.

“That is a fine group of women right there.” Tony comments as he subtly checks them out and the group of men hum in agreement.

“Did you see the two blondes I was talking to earlier near the bar? They were…” Clint asks as he uses his fingers to form the ‘okay’ symbol and (Y/N)’s heart feels their heart fall to their stomach at the comment as tears begin to burn their eyes.

“Clint…” Natasha tries but before she can get anything else out, Sam interrupts her.

“Did you get their numbers?” Sam quickly questions and Clint chuckles, taking a swig of his beer.

“No, I’d figured I’d wait till near the end of the party to make my move.” Clint says pointing to the two blondes that are conversing in the corner and (Y/N) quickly gets up, hastily walking towards the roof exit.

“(Y/N)! (Y/N) wait!” Natasha declares as she tries to follow them but they are already gone. The boys go silent and Clint’s face scrunches up in concern as he stands from his seat, looking at Natasha. “Go Clint. It’s not me they need.”

Clint nods before rapidly taking the stairs up to the roof where (Y/N) went. He opens the door, met with a cool breeze and he stops, observing (Y/N)’s crying form. He silently walks over to them as they have their arms wrapped around their body and he takes off his suit coat, wrapping it around their body.

“What’s wrong, (Y/N)?” Clint questions, voice full of concern and (Y/N) chokes on a sob before pawing at their watering eyes.

“I-I know we’re not together and I know we both agreed on it but it hurts. I miss you so much, Clint but I know you don’t miss me.” (Y/N) rushes out in between sobs, all their held in emotions finally coming out. “You flirt with other girls, going on like nothing ever happened and it hurts me. I still love you, Clint.”

(Y/N) slowly begins to walk away from Clint but a firm hand quickly latches on to theirs. They turn, eyes puffy from crying to be met with Clint’s brown ones. “I’m-I’m sorry… If I’m honest, I only flirt with other girls in hope of getting over you but it never works. I miss you too and I love you so much.”

Another sob overtakes (Y/N) at his confession and Clint instinctively grabs them into a hug. He holds (Y/N), gently rocking their two bodies as he takes in their familiar form. He notes how perfectly their body molds with his and how he’s missed their body flushed up against his.

(Y/N)’s sobs have died down and they gently sway to the soft music that is heard down below. A small sniffle escapes (Y/N) and Clint leans down, pressing a kiss to their temple. “We’re in this together, you and me. I promise.”

A happy sigh falls from (Y/N)’s mouth, knowing they wouldn’t be alone from now on.

part 1, part 2, part 3 (you are here), part 4, part 5, part 6, part 7, part 8, part 9, based on @skygemspeaks‘s prompt


His son is sixteen when he discovers volleyball, and Yuuri couldn’t be more happy when he does.

Lev has always been a tall boy, would have been gawky if he hadn’t been an enthusiastic member of their family of athletes. So while he isn’t exactly gawky, the way his peers are during puberty, he has always been a little intimidating. It didn’t make him many friends in school, though that was combated somewhat by his almost terrifying friendliness.

He’s drawn in so many people, and he has more acquaintances that Yuuri wonders sometimes how he keeps track of them all, but so few true friends that it breaks Yuuri’s heart. He spends most of his time trying to figure out where he fits in, and what he likes.

There’s no doubt in Victor’s mind that if Lev really wanted, he could be a top figure skater. He’s got the physique and the command over his body that it requires, despite his impressive height. That’s largely because he spends so much time working out with the rest of them.

Unfortunately, there’s no doubt in Yuuri’s mind that no matter how much Lev loves skating– and he does, he adores it –it’s not what he wants to do with his life. Even if he hadn’t said anything himself, which he has, Lev skates like someone who loves skating for what it is, rather than as a competitive sport. He skates lazily, for fun rather than for practice. His jumps are crisp and clean, much to his sister’s dismay more often than not, but Lev doesn’t feel the music in his bones the way the rest of them do. He’s always been buzzing with energy rather than humming with it.

But when he comes home from school in his third year at middle school, clutching a volleyball with a blinding smile and a hopeful glint in his eye Yuuri’s never seen before, he can feel his heart soar.

He knows next to nothing about volleyball, to be completely honest; he had no idea that tall, lithe players were at an advantage in a way that they weren’t in a lot of other sports. He’d never have thought to suggest it to Lev, but the way he lights up when Yuuri agrees to watch a match with him before his Dad, sister, and Uncle Yuri get home makes him wonder exactly why not.

It’s too late in the school year for Lev to gain anything from joining his school’s volleyball team, but Yuuri and Victor promise to help him however he needs. Alisa is a little more skeptical, telling Yuuri that “You’ve heard about it, but I’ve seen how the kids at school treat him, Dad. I’m not sure volleyball is going to be the way to fix it.”

Still, she supports her brother and works out with him and their parents. Yurio whips Lev’s arms and core into shape when he isn’t busy training himself. Yuuri would never let Yurio hear him say it, but his spartan upper body training (“because a good spiker needs to be flexible, dummy”) reminds Yuuri a lot of Lilia.

It’s not uncommon, nowadays, for Yuuri, Victor, and Alisa to come home from a competition to find Yurio, Otabek, and Lev in the backyard, practicing Lev’s admittedly powerful spikes. The rest of them join in when they can, playing friendly three on three games with no real semblance of rules.

Yuuri asked Lev once how his uncles were able to help him practice so much. To his complete surprise, it was mostly Otabek.

“Uncle Beka has a friend who plays volleyball.” Lev sounds excited to be able to talk about his uncle’s friend. “He’s my age and he has a friend who’s a lot like Uncle Yuri–”

“Wait, slow down Lev.” Yuuri smiles at his son’s enthusiasm. “How did Otabek meet him?”

Lev shrugs. “He won’t say but Uncle Yuri says it’s from one of those aesthetic blogs he loves so much and when I found out about volleyball he reached out to this guy because he knew he played and Uncle Beka is famous on Instagram so the guy was really happy to help!”

It takes Yuuri a moment to decipher the rambling, as it always does, but once he does, he resists the urge to chuckle. It’s an awkward way to help, since it would have been much easier to just get some books, but awkward, well-meaning help always has been Otabek’s style.

“Your uncle hasn’t let you meet this boy in person, right?” Yuuri trusts Otabek and Yuri, but he has to double check; the internet can be a wonderland, but it can also be a dangerous place.

Lev shakes his head. “I’ve talked to him a few times through DMs and Uncle Beka’s facetime though! He’s a lot like you! And he has this friend who sounds exactly like Uncle Yuri, it’s so weird! And they even act the same, too! But they live all the way in Miyagi and they’re still in school too so they wouldn’t be able to come visit anyway. They said they’d be joining a volleyball team in high school too, so maybe I’ll be able to play against them–”

Aaaand he’s lost him. Yuuri smiles fondly, infinitely happy that Lev has finally found something he loves doing enough to ramble on about. For the rest of them it’s always been ice skating, but Yuuri knows Lev has always been destined for different things.

There’s only a month before Lev goes on vacation, and then he’ll be a high school student. It’s hard to believe when it feels like no time at all has passed since the night they brought the kids home. But now Alisa is about to graduate high school and Lev is about to start and yeah, it really has been fourteen years.

Yuuri is looking forward to a lifetime more, especially now that everything is falling into place.


~Two Months Earlier~

“Ooh, how pretty!” Tadashi snaps a picture of the rose in the neighbor’s yard from a few different angles, then he put his phone right under his friend’s nose. “Tsukki, look!”

Tsukki rolls his eyes, but glances at the photos. “They’re alright.”

Which is Tsukishima-speak for those are fantastic, great job Yamaguchi, and Tadashi beams, opening his editing app and putting a few filters over the image to give it a dreamy quality before posting it.

The notification icon blinks red at him, showing that he has…

Whoa.

Nine hundred and seventy two new followers, seven thousand seven hundred and seventy six likes, and two thousand nine hundred sixteen comments.

Tadashi nearly drops his phone when he finally gets to the bottom of today’s notifications, seeing what sparked all this. There, in stark black print, is the notification that started it all.

@altin_beka started following you. 6h

@russian_ice_tiger started following you. 1h

“Tsu… Tsukki?” Tadashi asks, feeling faint, “Can you punch me in the face? Please? I think I’m dreaming.”

The fact that Tsukki just blinks at him in confusion instead attests to how close they are, because Tadashi knows he wouldn’t hesitate with most other people. “Yamaguchi. I’m only going to ask this once. What the hell?”

Tadashi shoves the phone into Tsukki’s face, feeling a little hysterical. “Otabek Altin followed me! Yuri Plisetsky too! Why? Why would they even know I exist? How did they find my account? Tsukki, who am I?”

Tsukki blinks again, looking annoyed. Then he sighs his trademarked you moron sigh and Tadashi gratefully feels a little less like he’s in a dream.  

“Isn’t that the old skater guy whose life you stalk? Maybe he just finally noticed it and threw you a bone.” Tsukki slowly pushes the phone away from his face.

Tadashi spends the next few minutes staring at it in disbelief, much to Tsukki’s irritation. That isn’t ideal, because it hurts Tadashi’s chest when Tsukki is upset with him, but he can’t help being preoccupied.

He really does drop it when a DM comes in from Otabek, asking bluntly if Tadashi will teach him the basics of volleyball for his nephew.

[TRANS] 151128 Youngjae’s Instagram Updates

FROM Youngjae
Hello it’s GOT7’s Youngjae
Haha I’m not sure how I should write this “thanks to” letter. Mmm i think I have more to be sorry about than thankful. Mm First of all, the reason I was able to become a GOT7 member was mostly because of my parents and my company. My parents are really important to me. I haven’t been able to express it as much to my mom and dad, but I think I’m doing okay at it. Until I got to be part of GOT7, I’ve had a lot of troubles with my parents haha I’m sure no one would’ve expect things to become like this.

When I first passed my audition, what can I say, I’m still young but I was even younger then, so I cried..ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ As soon as I passed, I called them, and seeing them happy for me made me feel really.. you know ㅎㅎㅎ To be honest, my parents didn’t want me to become a singer. They just wanted me to study, get a good job and have a stable life. Our family is actually struggling financially, but at the time I asked them to help me get vocal/singing lessons because I wanted to become a singer~ told them I’m going to learn to sing and made a fuss about it. I went to take lessons for a little bit in 8th grade, then had a hard time going due to issues at home, but I wanted to learn again during Sophomore year in high school so I really tried to persuade them haha. Regardless of knowing what I’m doing, they gave me allowance and I even worked part-time jobs without telling them haha. I’m still sorry for the things I did back then and would like to let them know I thank them through this letter (smile) (smile) And then I somehow came across JYPE audition! At first I didn’t pass. But they suddenly contacted me after a year and told me I passed, so I was really happy. Thinking back again and talking about it still makes me happy.. When I started practice, I couldn’t stay in Seoul the entire time. The days I was able to stay in Seoul for practice were Fri-Mon and I had to go back to Mokpo for the rest of the week, but the bus fare was pretty expensive. I received 100,000 won to go back and forth every week, but one day my dad didn’t have enough so he gave me 80,000 won. I told him it wasn’t enough and that I needed more. Honestly, 80,000 won was more than enough for food and bus fare, but you know there is the regular bus and the premium bus– for some reason I insisted on taking the premium bus every time. Taking the regular bus from Mokpo to Seoul would’ve cost me 20,500 won, but the premium bus fare was 30,400 won.. I remember it exactlyㅋㅋ

I begged and begged just to ride that bus and my dad would get angry at me while breaking the piggy bank, but it didn’t make me feel good (/satisfied). I felt bad, but I wanted more.. Whenever I reminisce those days now, I wonder why I was acting that way. I’m still young, but I guess I was just even younger. I don’t know if my parents would remember these things, but whenever I think back, I want to cry because I feel so remorseful. I was too young to realize then, but I’m always sorry and thankful, mom and dad! After all that, I practiced harder and became part of GOT7!! I thought, wow did I really finally debut? My parents came to see me on the day of our debut and hugged me tight.. Bear with me for rambling on but anyway!! I really wanted to tell my parents I thank them very much. I love you, mom and dad. It feels strange for someone like me to say this, but let’s all be good to our parents!

Also to all the Ahgases who always watch over us whether from afar or up close, if all of you weren’t here, we wouldn’t be either. I’m very thankful and think you’re all lovely for supporting us with love no matter what we do. I ask you to continue to love us just as you have all this time. We’ll keep working hard and become amazing singers for Ahgases. Thank you, sorry and thank you again. This became really serious unlike my personality.ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
Ahgase and GOT7, let’s keep going like this~~ I love you

Ahhhh and when we recently won first place wowwowaang honestly, I didn’t cry.. Rather than wanting to cry, you know that feeling of “wow it’s so overwhelming, no joke, are you sure the singer who won first place isn’t someone else??” And wow, everyone thank you so much. This doesn’t come easily and it was possible because of all your love for us. So I’m going to work even harder to do better, although the thought makes me worried at the same time. We’ll keep trying and show even better sides of us. I truly love you, IGOT7!

Ah also.. Those who are fluent in English, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, and other languages, please translate this. Our Ahgases are all smart, so you can do it! ㅋㅋㅋ Ah is this too much of a mission.. It’s because I think those from other countries can have fun reading and be happy from the translations. Anyway I love you!

Who else is there.. Friends haha I don’t have that many friends ㅠㅠㅠㅠ I came to Seoul during my Junior year and I was really lonely. I had no one until around my Senior year, when a really close hyung of mine came up to Seoul and started taking lessons! Or maybe I’m wrong. Anywho when I was in Mokpo, he took good care of me and we listened to each other’s worries, so I was really glad when he came up to Seoul too. Even though he isn’t blood-related, I’m just as comfortable around him; we talked a lot and he gave good advice when I went through hard times, and overall he made my experience in Seoul less difficult huhu. I wasn’t able to tell that hyung I thank him ㅋㅋㅋㅋ but hopefully he’ll read this and know I’m thankful ㅋㅋㅋ!

Speaking of hyung, to my real hyung! My hyung is now my vwaitwamin (vitamin) that gives me strength. He can tell if something’s wrong from just the tone of my voice, it’s scary sometimes.. Once I called him on a rough day and he constantly asked if something happened and ha (sigh) ㅠㅠㅠㅠ hyung always knows me best *tears* ㅋㅋㅋㅋ ah I’m crying too much in this letter ㅋㅋ That’s how close I was (/am) with my hyung. Oh that doesn’t mean I’m not close with my noona or anything, but I should write about her as well. Or else she’ll be upset ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅎㅎㅎ

Actually it was my noona’s birthday not too long ago ㅠㅠ after my schedule I completely forgot about it and didn’t call her, but she called me first. Then I remembered right away ㅠㅠ I’m still trying to decide what to do for her. She says it’s okay but I want to do something.. I told her “happy birthday” through kakaotalk along with an ugly picture of me, and my noona wa very happy. If I get some days off soon, I’m planning to bring a gift to her ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Whew.. I wrote to those I’m thankful for and about the things I’ve been through, and it’s not too much or too little, but it seems I’ve had many ups and downs in life ㅋㅋㅋ There are probably more people I should thank, but I’ll write the second letter another time!

Everyone who’s always supporting me – my parents, hyung, noona, members, Ahgase, JYPE, my friends, other hyungs – I’ll work hard as the amount of support you’re giving me. Thank you and love you, always. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️★★❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
