Hi Jess!! I'm Destiney, and I've just noticed you're blog on here!! Imagine my surprise when the first thing I see on here is my OTP, MithRoss!! I'm aware that you ship it, (even if it's only if they weren't your friends,) so why not check out the @mithross blog run by the amazing Taylor, aka MakiNishikinooo on Wattpad!! She writes amazing fics and her blog is a community all us shippers, MithRoss and RedNey, have made to hold our sins and happiness together, and we're all very proud of it. :3
*I’ve been trying to respond to this question all night so if my response is off topic I’m sorry I just went with whatever came to my head.
*I waited since last night to post this now because I wanted to check to see if this was cool with them.
Bwahahaha! You’re right I do.
However I’m so iffy when it comes to shipping people I know. I flat out don’t do it or at least I’m never vocal about it. Shipping real people can make things kind of awkward and some people don’t like it so I respect that and leave em’ out of the whole thing.
Max and Ross are a special case tho. They know I’m into shipping, reading fanfics, and just weird stuff in general. It’s not just something I do because “it’s cool” I honestly love it, it’s been a part of my personality forever, and I low-key keep up with multiple wattpad accounts on various ships (IF THEY’D EVER UPDATE COUGH)
As I was sayin’ about Max and Ross… they know I’m into this stuff and sometimes humor me. It’s cute like them LOL Max, Ross I’m sorry! That was the joke!
Again, they respect me as I them and we’re just good bros overall when it comes to that thing.
I’ve seen some of MakiNishikinooo works actually. I do tend to keep up with shipping fan-bases even past my own. I’m glad you guys are proud of the community you have created - as you guys should be! I’ll stop by that account again when I have a free moment to check it out.
1/3 so theres a post going around again about the different types of service dogs so could you imagine how different jack's life would be after the draft if he'd gotten a choco lab doggo, like this pup helps so much just by sitting with his head in jacks lap listening to all the things jack thinks he fucked up and he just gets a nonjudgmental ear to vent to, and even after he and bitty get together he still goes to his pup to talk out how he feels about their relationship. and in the haus
2/3 all the taddies get the “he’s here to work, not play w you” speech from shitty. plz also consider doggo helping w panic attacks aka a time in which jacks not alone in his room in epikegster after kent leaves so bitty doesn’t get completely shut out? like he knows jack has someone there to support him and isn’t /intentionally/ shutting him out
3/3 and lets not forget what kinda names this dog could have, like the one post about jack having a stuffed penguin named manchie and names the pup that too (i’m a fan of naming one animal the name of another animal just go w it) but anyway jack deserves to be okay and deserves happiness to be easier
oh my goodness yes i love this au. i feel like just before he comes to samwell his therapist suggests getting an emotional support dog for the comforting presence. however when jack looks into this he realises it’d be even better to get a psychiatric service dog because his panic attacks are pretty debilitating. so his therapist provides the recommendation and jack meets fish, a chocolate labrador (i totally get the naming animals after other animals it’s my favourite thing). fish is 3 years old and jack falls in love with her instantly. he attends training sessions with her and fish loves jack back just as much if not more
so jack and fish go to samwell. he’s been permitted to keep fish in his dorm and around the rink. some of the team do initially have a problem with remembering not to pet her but after one of the d-men distracts her whilst jack’s hands are shaking shitty tears him apart and no one ever does it again
frog year is tough for jack but without fish it would have been worse, so much worse. luckily he has fish. he also has shitty. fish loves shitty, a lot. she can tell that shitty loves jack and honestly that’s all she needs to know in her opinion. so when jack is having a rough day during first semester she makes a habit of leading jack to shitty. or if she can’t find him she’ll retrieve jack’s phone and drop it in his lap so he can phone him
surprisingly or unsurprisingly depending on how you look at it, fish does not take to bitty immediately. jack’s frosty demeanour around bitty makes her distrustful of him. after a while though, jack and bitty grow closer and although it takes a little longer, fish eventually warms up to him. after bitty’s concussion jack has a lot of trouble sleeping because his anxiety and guilt over bitty keeps him up, even after bitty votes for him to be captain again. the sleep deprivation makes his hands shake too much to pack his bags so fish tries to lead him to someone for help. jack assumes she’s taking him to shitty and follows her out of his room. however fish pushes him across the hall to johnson’s door which opens to reveal bitty, dropping off his boxes. the ensuing conversation plays out pretty much exactly the same way as the canon end of bitty’s freshman year, except there’s a dog sitting by jack’s feet wagging her tail
jack’s senior year is very different in comparison to his previous ones. whenever his anxiety gets bad, be it over school or the nhl or anything else, there’s now a 50/50 chance that fish will lead him to shitty or bitty. also that iconic bitty/jack baking scene turns slightly 101 dalmatians. instead of bumping into each other, fish may ‘accidentally’ knock bitty causing him to fall into jack who grabs his hips to keep him upright. nice one fish
the aftermath of epikegster is one of the worst panic attacks jack’s had since rehab. in this au when jack shuts the door on bitty after parse leaves he accidentally shuts fish out because she followed parse out to put as much space between him and jack as possible. so instead we have bitty knocking on the door just so fish can get in to help jack. luckily shitty’s room is still unlocked so he gets fish to follow him and lets her into jack’s room through the connecting bathroom. he gives her a pat on the head and tells her to take care of jack. if a dog could roll its eyes fish would (of course she’s going to look after jack, jack is her favourite person bitty come on)
part of fish’s training is that when jack’s attacks are so bad that he can barely breathe she gently pushes him to the floor and presses against his chest to calm him down. she knows not to get anyone just yet, that having anyone around jack right now will not help (bitty also knows this, which is why he didn’t follow fish into the bedroom). so fish just presses her head against jack’s chest as he takes in gulps of air that slowly turn into shaky breathes. it’s only when jack begins to stroke her head that she noses into his pocket and pulls out his phone so he can phone shitty
also please take the time to imagine jack running across campus to kiss bitty with a happy chocolate labrador running beside him with her tongue flapping
tl;dr i love the idea of jack with a service dog. he does deserve to be happy anything to make that happen is a good thing
‘Oh my god.’ Is the only thing i manage to whisper as i’m driving the road. The road i could drive with my eyes closed by now. Why am i driving again? I nervously run my hand through my hair, and glance at Rafa, Nadine and Davi in the backseat. Senior is sitting next to me, and i’m close to losing my mind.
When i reach the parking lot of the hospital, i quickly gather my things and we basically run inside. A lot of things go through my mind, but i’m not as happy as i thought i would be. I need to see he’s doing good before i believe it, because i know better than anyone that dissapointment is the worst. When we almost reach his room i see the nurse with the big brown eyes and she smiles at me.
‘Come in.’ She says, opening the door for us. My heart is pounding, and i remember i need to tell him about the baby and everything else.
‘Ney..’ I squeel, when i see him sitting straight up. A doctor is checking his pulse when his eyes meet mine. He opens his mouth, but before he can talk Davi jumps in his lap. Neymar’s eyes light up, and he hugs him. He seems happy to see him, but he peers up at me. He looks a little confused, scared even.
Rafaella cries while hugging him, just like their mother. Even Neymar senior almost cries, instead he hugs him tighter than ever before. Even though everyone is happy, they’re awfully silent. If he lost his memory, i will be the only one he won’t remember, because i haven’t been in his life as long as the rest of the people in the room. That thought scares me and i gulp.
‘The last thing he remembers is going to Spain, almost 4 months ago. Do you remember that?’ The surgeon asks me, and i nod, not looking away from him. I remember that day clearly, because it was that trip to Barcelona during which he cheated on me. He doesn’t remember..
‘So you haven’t forgottwn about me?’ I ask, and he shakes his head.
‘I remember you, i don’t remember what happened after though. What happened right before my accident? And why was i driving drunk?’ He asks, and it feels like a sting through my heart. He doesn’t remember wanting me back, enough to propose to me. I’m glad he didn’t forgot me though, and at this moment i just want to hold him. I walk over to him, and he tries to climb out of bed. I shake my head, and wrap my arms around him.
‘I dreamed about you.’ He whispers, just loud enough for me to hear it.
‘Right before i woke up, i dreamt of you, and Davi. You were laying in the sun, and just smiling at me. I pulled back because i remembered the two of you.’ I pull back slightly, and look him in the eye.
‘Ney..’ I whisper, and i let out shaky breaths. He’s been in a coma for weeks, and i’m the one who’s crying.. I rest my hand on his beautiful face, and i watch how he closes his eyes and relaxes his muscles. The frown on his face disappears and i bite my lip.
While everyone is eating, and talking i’m laying in bed, watching my angel sit on the end of the bed. She’s talking with my mother, and i can’t hear what it’s about. I just see the way the sunlight hits her hair, and how beautiful she looks when he smiles. There’s nothing i regret more than cheating on her, she thinks i forgot, but i remember everything. I remember it all, including how she left me and didn’t want me back. I also remember proposing to her, and i saw how she took of a ring while she thought i wasn’t watching. If i can’t remember doing it, it hasn’t happened. If there’s anything i know about the princess sitting at the end of the bed, it’s that she’s honest, which means she’ll realize the old me is just that. The old me who died in the car crash, while she’s with the new me, who remembers everything but won’t ever do it again.
As soon as the door closes after Rafa and her parents, the tension in the air gets thicker.
‘We need to talk.’ I say softly, and when i look up, i see something in his eyes i’m not sure what it means.
‘A lot has happened after you arrived in Barcelona.’ I hesitate, and swallow my tears, trying harder than ever to not cry.
‘You cheated on me with Bruna.’ I say, and i don’t look at him while i say it.
‘I found out one day after you came back, and i left you.’ I close my eyes at thought of that day. That awful and painful night in the restaurant.
‘We started being around each other a while later, because of Davi. You asked for forgiveness, and you even..’ I frown, and look at him.
‘You even proposed to me. I told you i needed time to think about it, and a day later we got in a fight. You left, and apparently you went out to drink and had an accident.’ I pause, and the look on his face is sad. I scoot closer to him, thankful that Davi is sleeping on the couch.
‘Please say something.’ I beg, and he shakes his head.
‘I’m so sorry.’ He says, and i know he means it. If i suddenly woke up, hearing that i cheated on him, i’d be sorry too. I don’t know what his thoughts on the proposal are though. He takes me hand, and kisses my palm. I sigh, as my eyes get watery.
‘I love you Neymar, and seeing you lay there almost dead made me realize it ten times better.’ A tear falls from my eye, and it lands on our hands with our fingers inter wined.
‘If i could propose to you again, i would.’ He says softly, and i look up with tears in my eyes.
‘Baby..’ He whispers, and pulls me closer to him. Tears escape my eyes, and land on his shirt, while i hug him tightly.
‘I was so scared.’ I cry, and he softly rubs my back.
‘Being close to death made me realize all the things i could’ve had.’ He says, and cups my cheek, running his thumb over my lower lip. A habit of him, and i missed it dearly. He leans in and kisses me. I welcome his lips by opening my mouth, knowing that we need to talk about so many things, yet his familiar taste is too addicting to let go of. He pulls me closer, and i straddle his legs with my thighs, sitting on his lap. I let go, and rest my forehead on his. We’re both out of breath.
Thank you for being such a funny person and putting time into your videos. You make me really happy even when I'm in the worst moods. When I'm on the verge of tears and I feel like running away, you can make me feel so much happier. Thank you not only for your videos but for being you.
