Person a tripping in the street and person b whomst is a stranger to them catches them and accidentally dips them ( like the dance thing u know)
Justin Oluransi likes to walk, and being in this city so far has been nothing but walking.
Walking from the subway to the hotel to the pharmacy back to the hotel, then to the hospital in the morning for his interview and from there to the deli for an early lunch then back to the hotel and then just - out to explore midtown.
New York City is all. walking. all. the. time. And it’s beautiful clear weather on a breezy spring midmorning.
He loves it.
It’s like a dance, weaving between the many pedestrians, pausing for cars in the street but not waiting for the signal to turn green, picking up the pace to get away from the creepy dude following too closely, and then slowing down to enjoy the atmosphere - suddenly halting to catch his breath when he turns a corner and sees the Empire State Building.
What a sight, what a rush, what a thrill! The only thing missing would be a -
A man bumps into him from behind so hard he’s twisted around and Justin’s glad he’s got quick reflexes because otherwise the man would have hit the concrete with the back of his head.
Instead, Justin has an arm under his shoulders and the other hand gripping the man’s waist tight to keep him cradled against his chest.
Wide green eyes stare up at him, and for a moment Justin can’t think. Those eyes are mesmerizing - they’re beautiful, soft, sweet. Justin’s lost in them.
It takes a moment for him to register that the other man’s hands are both gripping his arm tight, fingers digging into the light fabric of his favorite salmon hoodie, and he realizes he should help the man back to his feet.
“Sorry,” Justin says, pulling him into an upright position and letting his hands linger on the other man’s biceps for a moment to make sure he can support his own weight just fine.
“Chyeah, no, please, I’m sorry, I just, uh -” The other man is fumbling for words, running his hands over himself and then reaching up to right the cap on his head. “My legs don’t always send letters of intent to my brain, so sometimes my body wants to keep a pace and my legs just like - bolt for no apparent reason and I tumble over myself like a newborn fawn and it’s not - uh..”
He finally looks up and meets Justin’s gaze and for a moment Justin thinks he might lose himself in those beautiful eyes again, but the other man seems to suddenly regain control of himself upon catching sight of him. He straightens and stands taller, pulling at the hem of his t-shirt and licking his lips.
Justin does,, not follow the movement. Nope.
The other man clears his throat. “That wasn’t very chill of me.”
Justin laughs and the other man smiles softly in response.
“That’s ok,” Justin says. And then, because this man is really beautiful and Justin has never passed up an opportunity to flirt with beautiful people, he says “I was just thinking about how walking around here is like dancing, and then you waltzed into my arms for one heck of a grand finale.”
That gets a surprised laugh and a hint of a blush creeping on his cheeks, Justin can tell.
God, this man is beautiful.
“I’m Justin,” he says, extending his hand forward.
“Derek,” the other man - Derek - says.
When their palms meet Justin has to will himself not to stare at the way they fit in each other so well, or how they look clasped like that, or how long Derek’s fingers are.
“So uh,” Derek says, pulling his hand away but letting his fingers trail along Justin’s just slightly. “You pick up dance partners on 6th Av often?”
“Shit, is that the street this is? I thought I was on Broadway?”
He has to look around for a second, because if he got lost he has no idea how he’s gonna get back to the hotel and he cant handle being lost right now.
But Derek’s easy laugh flows over him, as does his gentle touch on his shoulder to draw Justin’s attention back to him.
“Yeah, Broadway’s right here. It just intersects here, see.” He’s pointing out all the street signs around them. “You probably just walked one block this way without realizing.”
“God, I’m such a tourist.”
Derek laughs again, and Justin loves how it sounds. “That’s alright, so’s everyone else.”
“You’re not from here either?”
“Oh no, I was born and raised on the Upper East Side. But everyone’s a tourist in this city bro, even the locals. Tourism is a state of mind.”
Justin lets that hover in the air for a moment. He watches Derek’s face and the way he seems so much more collected now, so much more in control and - chill.
“I’d love to have a five hour conversation with you about that one sentence.”
“No shit.” Justin revels in the curious look adorning Derek’s face and asks “Where can we get coffee and talk into the sunset?”
Derek smirks and Justin can feel in his bones that he is not going to make the flight home tonight.
But that’s ok, maybe he won’t go home. Maybe he’ll stay in this city, take that position at the hospital, and maybe… maybe he’ll have Derek show him around in the meantime.
ok so i finally decided to share my headcanon with the world aka tumblr i apologise for it being super long (orz) didn’t mean to write so much but anyways, here it is i hope you enjoy it
OK IMAGINE peter having a crush on kurt and he’s super shy about it like whenever someone asks him who’s the person he likes he’s all like “pffft liking someone is too much effort and I’m lazy” but when kurt passes by him and says hi and he’s blushing and thinking stuff like “im SO gAY” and then christmas is about to come and he’s like damn i want to give something to kurt but idk what, so he remembers that his mom knows how to knit and uses his super speed to go back home and asks his mom to teach him how to knit and his mom is like “oh my god peter did you got expelled from the school?” And peter is like woah calm down woman I’m here for u to teach me stuff, chill
And his mom is so surprised like ??? What’s happening to my son??? Why is he showing interest in these kind of things??? And then she asks peter about it and he’s just like “yeah u know i think it’ll be a good idea to give something to this blue guy who’s always friendly with me at school plus i get to learn how to do these things and if the mutant stuff doesn’t go well i can just open my own store and sell knitted clothes” and his mom is like “oh well i guess that’s true” but she thinks “who is this person and what did he do to my son wtf he used to be such an introvert and now he’s even talking about making his own business!? I’m so proud I’m gonna thank the professor as soon as i can” and peter learns how to knit and he’s actually pretty good at it and then he makes some warm and comfy gloves for kurt because the winter is super cold at the school
so he returns at the school just in time because kurt was searching for him and he’s freaking out and trying to hide the gloves because those were supposed to be a surprise for christmas and kurt says “peter! I was searching for you! What are you gonna do on christmas?” And peter is like “idk maybe play some pacman??? I bet you’re gonna go to church that day” and kurt is like “yeah but u know i wanted to ask you if you wanted to come and pray with me at church and then we could spend some time together… if u want, ofc” and peter is like “wtf wtf wtf wtf wtf he’s so cute when he talks about church… wAIT did i really think that ohgod something is wrong with me” and he finally says “oh.. okay… i guess it’s fine i’ll make some room for you since my agenda is almost full this christmas but i’ll see what i can do” and then kurt gets super worried and says “no, it’s fine!! really!! you don’t need to come with me if you don’t want to!! or if you’re already busy on christmas it’s ok i understand” and then peter notices that kurt has this sad look on his face and just sighs and says “it was a joke you silly, ofc im free on christmas and i have all the time in the world just for you"
and then both of them realised what peter just said and blush a little and kurt is so happy because he really wanted to be with peter on christmas and then peter just gives up and gives the gloves to kurt and says “these were gonna be a surprise, christmas gift for you actually but i kinda fucked up because I’m not good when it comes to hide something or keep secrets so i’ll just give them to you instead, hope you like them” and kurt is sooo confused??? and happy??? and wants to cry a little?? (basically a mess of emotions) because no one ever has give him something and it was hand made like how cool is that and then peter is like WAIT WHY ARE YOU CRYING DID I DO SOMETHING WRONG OH GOD ARE YOU HURT??? WAIT HERE I’LL GO CALL THE PROF and he runs but kurt bamfs to where peter is and teleports them to the library (bc no one was there ok shhh also I like libraries so yeah..) and tells peter that he was so happy because it was such a gentle and cute act from his part and peter is like nah it’s nothing but kurt is really touched and ends up kissing peter’s cheek and they blush and peter is like IM SO GAY and kurt just melts because the kiss was out of impulse but peter catches him before he hits the floor and says “don’t you die on me, we still have a date at the church!”
And ofc kurt melted even more and peter is like “shit he’s so cute his cuteness is gonna give me a heart attack” and they end up praying together at the church on chirstmas and since peter didn’t know how to pray kurt helped him and they prayed together and when they finished praying they were talking a walk and peter ended up holding kurt’s hand and kurt almost melted again and said “i didn’t thank you for the gloves so i’m gonna do that now. thank you so much peter, the gloves are perfect and i love them!” And peter is like “holy shit he liked them holy shit SHIT” and then there was an awkward silence between them for a couple of mins but then peter kissed kurt out of nowhere and said “i’m taking this as your chirstmas gift for me okay? you don’t have to give me anything else” and they both blush again and kurt just smiles and doesn’t let go from peter’s hand and they keep walking until they finally come back to the school and then both of them say good night to each other and return to their room and blush and when they’re inside and start to freak out because that was their first kiss and both of them thought “WHAT IF I SUCKED AT KISSING OH GOD HELP ME”
and now they realise that they have a thing for each other, congrats they are gay the end.
BONUS, thanks to @96aiko who complemented my headcanon with cute stuff
learning how to knit didn’t take Peter long at all but that was because of his super speed that he’s actually pretty clumsy and needed to knit at least 5 pairs of gloves until he was fully satisfied that they were good enough to give them to kurt
after kurt and peter become a thing, peter gains confidence and flirts with kurt every chance he gets because he loves to see kurt flustered but when it comes to kissing peter is really shy himself and doesn’t like to do it around other people. kurt loves to give him a lot of tiny kisses though, to get back at him for the (super cute) flirting

For the past few months I’ve been watching Hunter X Hunter and have become a little obsessed in love with it. Because I want to avoid spoilers I haven’t looked up any fanart yet, so I was itching to do some sketches (of mostly Hisoka) :3
dream me the world,
he tells you.
your head spins at the thought of how much sleep it would take
to bring him anything close to the world he deserves.
you’d pull the sun out of the goddamn sky if he asked.
he would never ask;
maybe that’s why you’d do it in a second,
cross your heart and hope to die
as long as he’s still alive.
greywaren. greywaren. greywaren.
you find your king
in the one who started your search.
it is his birthday.
you buy him a paper crown
and as you place it on his head
he makes it an extension of himself.
he’s real. he’s breathtaking.
boys like him don’t die.
(you can’t let him die.)
you freeze at the sound of a million buzzing wings.
you shout out to the forest and pray to god it hears;
(if he dies i die, you promised you’d keep me safe!)
it’s a long way down.
you’d hurl yourself into the abyss
(in a heartbeat, less)
if you thought it would help.
you’re the sun. please, god,
don’t let yourself burn his paper crown.
you’re the hornet. you’re the hornet.
