*suplexes Photoshop* I AM SO READY FOR THIS COMIC TO GET STARTED MORE THAN IT ALREADY HAS
I hope you guys enjoyed what was essentially the prologue :) I’m really excited about what I have planned :3 Expect an announcement in the next day or so about how I’m gonna go about the next part/first chapter of the comic.
Also, thanks SO MUCH for everyone’s patience with me for this update! Like I said before, I wanted to make sure the panels look exactly the way I want them to. You guys deserve only the best!
so i’ve had this kinda random idea of neighbour!astro so like,, here’s a neighbour!astro au in which all of the guys live on the same floor of an apartment building!
everyone in the building knows who he is and loves him
like myungjun doesn’t leave, return to, (etc) his apartment without saying hello and smiling at every single person he passes
he’s always ruffling kids hair on the way by and always has candy with him to hand them
at first all of the parents were freaked out by this dude giving their kids candy but eventually they got used to it bc they realized myungjun is literally a harmless bean
there’s a lot of house plants in his apartment
succulents on the desk in his bedroom
a flower called a clivia on the living room table (everyone says this flower is just myungjun as a plant due to it’s orange and yellow petals)
grows aloe and various herbs in the window in his kitchen
random flowers and other plants scattered around the various rooms of his house
once sanha broke one of his plants and he cried
he didn’t talk to sanha for a whole week and only forgave him when sanha bought him a new plant
doesn’t care at all about anything else in his apartment looking good though and jinwoo is constantly yelling at him bc “myungjun hyung you literally have yellow walls and your bedsheets are blue and you have purple and green striped pillows whAT ArE YOu dOIng”
jinwoo has tried like five times to get him to buy matching stuff and each time myungjun gets out of it by distracting jinwoo with his flirting skills™️
cue flustered jinwoo with super red cheeks and barely responding to anything myungjun says
he introduced all of the guys to one another and they all kinda credit him for their friend group
is the friend who brings them all coffees, treats, etc whenever he goes out
loved unconditionally by everyone for his ever present smile and positivity around the building
has his dog’s name on the name plate next to his door alongside his
everyone thought that it was the name of his child for a really long time bc he refers to his dog as his kid and bc his dog’s name is jihun which is a pretty common name
takes his dog on runs/walks every day and when he sees the old women in the park doing yoga/exercising he yells out a “looking great ladies” with his signature smile nd literally all of them are in love with him
”omg i wish he would marry my daughter” “psh please mrs. kang i want him to marry me” (sucks for all of them though bc he only has eyes for myungjun)
has way too many things for his dog scattered around his apartment,,, somehow his house is nearly as neat as dongmin’s
his apartment is the epitome of aesthetic and everyone who comes in is jealous of his white walls and white bed sheets and completely matching green accents
(if only he could keep a plant alive, then it would be perfect in his mind)
only has mugs in his kitchen and no one knows why he doesn’t own any glasses
he met myungjun bc he was constantly throwing out dead house plants and myungjun saw and started to leave ones he had been taking care of for a while outside jinwoo’s door
kept it up for like 3 weeks before jinwoo finally caught him trying to sneak back into his apartment across the hall
jinwoo thinks that he should probably be offended that myungjun had no faith in his ability to grow a plant but he can’t be upset bc the cutest guy in his building is giving him plants and its a great excuse to talk to him for “tips on keeping his plants alive”
is the one of his friend group who all of them go to for advice whenever they’re having trouble with something
he’ll sit them down on his couch with a mug of tea and let them pet his dog as they rant to him about whatever is wrong
gives them great advice and a good hug before sending them back to their own apartments
highkey the kindest and most genuine hearted person in the building and he always has something nice to say to everyone he sees when leaving, coming, walking around, (etc)
has been living in the building for the longest time of all of the guys
he tutors like half the kids in the building in various subjects ranging from science to english
he met myungjun the week that he moved in bc he thought myungjun was trying to kidnap one of the kids he tutors
myungjun ran into the boy as he was returning to his apartment and told the kid to come in for a minute bc he just bought new chocolates
cue dongmin freaking the heck out bc he thought that his new next door neighbour was actually going to murder the 10 year old or something
calmed down after myungjun explained himself and gave dongmin some chocolate too
his house is literally spotless and no one knows how he does it bc he’s so busy
though it’s not as aesthetic as jinwoo’s apartment it’s super nice and well decorated and put together
has complete matching utensils and plates and glasses (and even has a set of wine glasses)
a closet that, according to myungjun, is “bigger than my bathroom wtf” and is filled with super nice pieces of clothing that the other guys steal from time to time
doesn’t talk to everyone he sees bc usually he’s rushing around to get home for tutoring, to school, or to his part time job but always offers everyone a smile
the most organized and put together person in the building,, you’ll never catch him in any drama like he’s so lowkey it’s unbelievable
hosts weekly drama-watching nights for all the guys bc his living room is the biggest
doesn’t get caught in any irl drama but will binge watch an entire show in 24 hours and rant to anyone who will listen about why it sucks/is a must see while in the laundry room
everyone who lives in the building either wants to be him, marry him, or have one of their kids marry him tbh
everyone in the building describes him as “unique”
no one really knows him that well but they also can’t really complain about him bc for the most part he’s a great neighbour
he’s quiet and keeps pretty much to himself,, never really has people over very often
lowkey a hoarder though bc he finds things that he thinks are cute, different, (etc) at stores and buys them for no real reason and then stacks them on his shelves
dongmin is always trying to get rid of these little trinkets like “wtf bin why do you need this mini statue of a rooster??” “bc it’s cute, okay, and the lady told me it was a good luck charm i can’t get rid of it”
highkey in love with dongmin,,, everyone knows it,,, even dongmin knows it,, but it’s okay bc dongmin is highkey in love with bin too
the two spend hours together /studying/ but actually study bc they just like being around each other even if they’re not talking
sanha, being the buildings Drama King, has tried to find dirt on their “study dates” but can’t bc they literally just study
go on coffee dates 25/8 bc they’re both struggling university students, pray for them (sanha and minhyuk are constantly annoyed that they don’t get invited for coffee bc they are also struggling university students, jinwoo reminds them that dongmin and bin are in love™️ and they need to chill)
he’s the only one who actually knows how he and myungjun met bc myungjun doesn’t remember
bin lives across the hall and to the left of myungjun, next door to jinwoo
basically he lives on the end of the hall, with jinwoo in the middle and minhyuk on jinwoo’s other side; sanha lives directly across from him, myungjun in the middle of the opposite side and dongmin on myungjun’s other side
one night myungjun somehow manages to knock on the wrong door and totally confess to jinwoo how much he likes having him as a friend bc he’s only his second friend in the building aside from dongmin
except he tells bin all this stuff and bin is like “uhh i mean, i know i’m great but who are you??”
they end up friends after that somehow,, it helps that myungjun is friends with dongmin
bin will bring all the cats back home each time he comes back to his apartment
like he’ll see a familiar black cat and be like “oh that’s miss. kim’s cat, mina, i better bring her home!!”
then gets the cat to follow him home bc cats love him for some reason and returns the cat to it’s apartment
smiles so much bc he loves smiling and being smiley and everyone loves seeing him walking around
super nice when you get to know him but comes off as slightly intimidating
the guys know he cries at dramas, and offers to fight anyone who hurts them
athlete extraordinaire in a nontraditional way
aka the shelves of his apartment are filled with dance and taekwondo trophies
really quiet and pretty shy tbh like no one really talks to him unless he wants them to
he lived next to jinwoo for almost a month before anyone met him
they literally never saw him and thought maybe it was some kind of ghost tenant or something living in the apartment
and then one night when myungjun was working jinwoo went over bc he heard minhyuk playing a song by bts that he really liked the dance to
cue him and minhyuk bonding over dance and becoming dance buddies
his apartment is really messy,,, like there’s clothes covering every spot in his room and no one knows how he can tell anything apart
he’s the person who will just grab a random shirt off the floor like “eh this is good” and wear it
dongmin is always telling him to clean up but he doesn’t ever listen
he’s really observant which is a benefit of being quiet and not talking much
him not talking much is also why him and sanha bond so well bc sanha incessantly talks but in like a good way bc minhyuk loves it
hardcore pining after sanha and everyone knows it except sanha bc he’s oblivious
does absolutely anything sanha asks him to bc he just cares about him so much
even helps him with finding dirt/drama about people around the building even though it’s not really his thing
he heard about a few of the kids wanting to attend dance lessons and not being able to afford it so he convinced bin and jinwoo to help him teach them for free,,, took none of the credit even though it was 110% his idea
everyone has a lot of respect for him bc they know he works hard
is super polite to everyone so pretty much everyone likes him and they leave him alone for the most part
definitely the balancing personality in his friend group bc while he can be excited and joking when he wants to be he’s pretty serious for the most part and makes sure they’re not doing, saying, (etc) anything silly or stupid
only moved in like 3 months ago and lives on myungjun’s other side
when he moved in myungjun helped him carry some boxes up without even saying anything to sanha first
the poor boy thought this guy was trying to steal his stuff and only realized myungjun was helping him after he yelled at him
quickly forgave him bc they live right beside each other and have quite a bit in common
absolute Drama King like he doesn’t start it or get involved in it but he knows everything there is to know about everyone
he goes to tea at the houses of the gossip ladies and bc he seems so innocent they just talk about everything in front of him
someone: “did you hear about what miss. kang did with mrs. kim’s husband??”
sanha: “uhh no please fill me in”
all the ladies love him and invite him back every single week
he doesn’t spill any of the secrets he learns unless he has to,,, chaotic good tbh
his house is surprisingly clean,,, bc he’s so young everyone expects it to be like minhyuk’s but somehow it isn't
his plates, bowls, cups, other kitchenware are yellow and everyone loves it bc they think they’re adorable
constantly falls asleep at the desk in his room due to staying up late to do homework and jinwoo is always telling him he needs to get proper sleep and use his bed
the buildings largest child tbh,, everyone kinda watches out for him and all the parents pinch his cheeks and think he’s adorable
the most oblivious person on earth
everyone has told him that minhyuk likes him, including the gossip ladies but he won’t listen bc he’s stubborn
doesn’t believe that his huge crush isn’t one sided until minhyuk kisses him one day while they’re having a very very rare argument about something
when the guys find out they yell/say variations of “finally” and myungjun buys minhyuk ice cream as a congratulations
like myungjun, he’s super positive and always smiling his super nice smile and everyone loves having him around
I can (finally) present to you the finished fic for my fic giveaway, which @bananannabeth won!!! Big thanks to her for a really interesting prompt (which was Percabeth going to highschool in canonverse) and also for just generally being an awesome person.
Disclaimer: I know very little of the American schooling system. Please forgive any inaccuracies. Also, this is set after Blood of Olympus, before MCGA or ToA. Percy still goes to Goode! Other than that, I hope you enjoy this oneshot!!
“Is that Percy Jackson?”
“Who’s that girl with him?”
Whispers filled the hall as Percy strolled down the familiar corridor of Goode with Annabeth. Heads turned as he walked past, leaving a trail of confusion and whispering in his wake.
Percy’s mind was filled with all his old school friends and memories. He felt Annabeth squeeze his hand and he smiled at her reassuringly. Once again, Percy felt so glad that he and Annabeth were going to spend a year of high school together, especially after the year they’d just had: facing giants, finding new camps…and they’d spent most of it separated.
“Percy Jackson,” someone exclaimed, striding towards him.
Percy looked over at him, trying to place him. For a second Percy didn’t recognise him. But then a casual smile lit up Percy’s face, as Percy’s eyes brightened in recognition.
“Terry?” Percy asked. He clapped Terry on the back as he approached Percy and they embraced shortly.
“Percy,” Terry answered, “long time no see!” He grinned. “It’s great to see you. How long’s it been–a year now?”
“Yeah, must be, mustn’t it?” Percy replied uneasily, messing up his hair unwittingly. He knew this would be the worst bit. “Stuff… happened.”
Terry’s eyes betrayed his confusion and suspicion, but he didn’t press the matter, for which Percy was glad.
“Glad to see you back Percy. How are you, man?”
“Great, thanks. A bit worse now that I’m back at Goode with you though,” Percy joked.
Terry chuckled. “Thanks. I see you’ve brought a friend along too?”
“Yup. Terry, this is Annabeth; Annabeth, this is my friend Terry,” he said, introducing them.
“Nice to meet you, Terry,” Annabeth said, stretching out her hand.
Terry smiled at her then turned to Percy. “This is the same Annabeth? The Annabeth you talked about?” Percy nodded, resulting in Terry grinning broadly. “Well, it’s nice to know she’s real.”
Annabeth raised an eyebrow. “You didn’t think I was real?”
Terry blushed. “Well, you see, he was always talking about you, and–”
“I was not always talking about her!” Percy protested. It was his turn to blush.
Annabeth just laughed. “Well, I’m definitely real.”
“So how come you’re at Goode?” Terry asked. “Did you move?”
Annabeth shared a smile with Percy, a brief but meaningful look passing between them. “We decided to spend our senior year together,” Annabeth said, “so for the first time I’m trying out high school with this Seaweed Brain.” She bumped shoulders with Percy.
Warnings: Hopefully cute, because that’s what I was aiming for! :) A/N: Guess who wanted to write Dickie-boy a Soulmate AU fic? I’m kind of stuck with my Jason one, so I’m writing this instead! Woo! It doesn’t take place in the same world, because I kind of wanted to use a different “soulmate method” or however I should word that. There’s no sentence engraved on their wrists for this one, is what I’m trying to say. Enjoy!
Dreams were a special thing in the world you lived in- because dreams were how most people were able to meet up with their soul mates. It’s how it worked; once you hit a specific age, your dreams had the possibility to become the world where you’re able to interact with your significant other. If both you and your other half fell asleep at the same time, you’d be summoned into what most people would describe as a paradise, and then you’d see them and be able to talk to them.
You, yourself began to get worried. You were 18 and had still yet to meet your other half in a dream. It was true, age was never a set ordeal, but it was very rare a case that you did not communicate within your slumber before becoming a legal adult- most of the time, it meant that you simply didn’t have a soulmate or they had passed before you had a chance to meet them.
You weren’t sure what category you fell under, and it worried you that maybe a late greeting wasn’t going to be your case. You slept at decent hours, and so you decided to change it up in hopes that’d be what caused it, but still to no avail. You grew restless at the desperate attempt to find what time you should fall unconscious in order to meet, and just when you were truly starting to believe destiny did not have someone for you, sleep overtook your tired mind and you awoke in a world you had never seen before.
It was an abyss of calm colors, with clouds fogging nearly everything in sight, before suddenly you standing in your apartment with the fog still there, but not nearly as heavy. You heard whispers, gentle ones that seemed to lull any worries that lingered within you, and you attempted to follow them. You began to call out to the sounds as you walked around your home- and you found yourself being led outside.
Outside was… different. Your neighboring buildings weren’t there. It was a blank fog, and when you took a step into it, the whispering got a little bit louder. You felt hope within the noise, and so, with a newfound confidence, you ran out and called back to it.
Left and right, you passed structures and a variety of places, each of which were blurred with the strange mist. Everything on the left, you recognized, they were places you had visited in the past- important places that you knew you were never going to forget. On the right, the visions that you passed were unknown to you: a circus, a mansion, a cave. The soft noise became louder, until you heard a distinct voice of someone calling back to you, as you were doing for them. Your heart was beating almost sporadically in anticipation.
Then you saw a figure, within the fog, and both of you paused. An invisible wall kept you from getting any closer to each other, from seeing what the other looked like. You both seemed to be upset with the fact, seeing how the two of you were attempting to find a way around the unseeable obstacle.
The figure stops after awhile, and chuckles. “Well, I guess we’re stuck like this, huh?” His voice is warm and kind- it holds the most compassionate tone you’re sure you’ll ever hear.
“I guess so,” You respond, a little sadly, but also with a trace of relief. You had finally fell asleep at the right time.
“We can talk to each other at least! Introduce ourselves, maybe.” He gives an overly dramatic bow, which makes you giggle. “I’m Richard John Grayson, but my nickname is Dick.”
You give your full name as well, before giving your own little visible greeting. “It’s great to finally meet you– or well, hear you.”
“Yeah, sorry, that’s probably my fault. My sleeping schedule is… complicated.”
You smile sympathetically at his tone, “Busy life?”
“Oh, you have no idea,” He laughs.
You both talk for what feels like hours, and yet it’s still so short when you feel yourself being pulled away. It’s only for a split second, but the fog slips away from him slightly, and you see his smile as his seemingly far away voice says: “Good morning, Y/N.”
