idk why but this moment is one of my all time faves

[FANACCT] 170611 KNK “해달별" Fansign Experience at 제일라아트홀 (Fanboy)

Hi again! 

I’m here with my fanaccount for KNK’s fansign during their “해달별" promotions.

This was a notably important fansign for me because I’m pretty sure this is my last fansign event before I leave Korea on the 22nd…

I’m so sad. ㅠㅠ

Anyway, it was a really awesome event and I’m glad I got to see my favorite group up close and personal again.

I did a video about their fansign before during “U” era too.

Without further ado, let’s get started!

KNK’s fansigns are getting more competitive nowadays, with fans buying more than 10 albums to have a chance to get in. I originally bought 9 albums, but after seeing a fan next to me at the CD store buy 10, I bought 3 more, totaling up to 12 albums overall. And I got in!

On the day of the fansign, I found the building where it was held and headed to the B2 floor. Some fans were waiting to get in, but the staircase and entrance was rather narrow. I showed my Alien Registration Card to verify my identification (though a passport works just as well) and the staff told me to pick a card that was on the table. The assorted cards were all face-down, and this was to determine my seat number. I got number 63. 

I took my seat, but the rows of chairs were all close together and narrow too, not allowing much room. This was a noticeable inconvenience when fans had to squeeze past each other in the rows. I spent a huge amount of time before coming to prepare a fanletter for my bias Seungjun, so I had to write down all the post-its for the members that I would put in my album.

Soon the members appeared and the fansign went underway. They looked so handsome as always, but they look especially good with the suits in this era aghhhh. 

Sorry that my picture’s quality isn’t too good, but this is how the fansign was conducted. The order was: Jihun→Inseong→Seungjun→Youjin→Heejun

MEMBER INTERACTIONS (with pictures and gifs!)

I’ll fast-forward to the interactions I had with each member. I’m sorry that I forgot some things that happened, but in the thick of the moment, it’s hard to process and take in everything that happened (for me). Luckily, I met someone at the fansign that was kind enough to take a video of me when I went through this great experience. I was really nervous again, because they’re my favorite group and this was my last time, so I was even more anxious. 

JIHUN

So leader Jihun was first this time around~ Actually he was rather quiet today as well; when I met him at a fansign last year, he was rather soft-spoken too. But it’s not necessarily a bad thing. I pointed to the questions I had brought for him on the post-its and told him I was a part of an international KNK fan group on Facebook, and I gathered some questions other Tinkerbells wanted to know about KNK. He was listening and then all of a sudden, said, “Ah. International,” in English. THAT WAS FREAKING CUTE AHH. He was really handsome up-close, though. He looked mature and cool when he was in thinking mode, but then he lapsed into squishy mode when he smiled and it was just adorable.

He really thought deeply about the questions I wrote. I guess he had to think a lot about how to answer them. But another factor was that time was really limited and the staff members were quite strict so they moved our albums to the next member by force, cutting our time short. 

Blue post-it note:
Q: Which member is really the closest to Jihun-hyung…?
A: I’m close with all but umm… Heejun?!
Jihun had some trouble answering this question but dang, I didn’t expect him to think so seriously about it. ㅠㅠ I’m sorry if I had to make you pick a favorite! I know you all love each other LOL. 

Yellow post-it note:
Q: Where do you draw the inspiration when you make the choreography (for KNK)?
A: There’s just times when suddenly… Ttak! 
I forgot what other little things we said after he answered those, but I had to move on. I gave him high-fives as a farewell and moved over to… Inseong!

INSEONG

Next was my second bias, Inseong. I greeted him by saying, “Inseonggie hyung~” hahaha because he’s just a fun, cool guy. He grinned and asked, “Hyung?” I SWEAR THIS WAS SO REMINISCENT WHEN I FIRST MET HIM in person when he asked me, “Am I hyung?” LOL. But he is just killing the visual game nowadays. He looked especially handsome today. He asked me where I’m from and I told him America, more specifically Hawaii. 

Bottom post-it note:
Q: Is there a place you really want to visit (vacation-wise)?
A: Hawaii

That’s probably why he cleverly wrote his answer as “Hawaii” for my question, but I’m not complaining! Inseong is really easy to talk to. 
I told him that his hairstyle for this concept suits him very well and that he looks really handsome. He was really happy to hear a compliment and ahhh he was just an excited hamster. I assured him that he was already handsome but now, even more. I basically complimented him a lot because he deserves more love and attention!!

Top post-it note:
Q: The most difficult point of this promotion…?

A: Live…!?

He explained that singing live was one of the toughest parts of promotions. I asked why, and he said it’s because he has to sing rather high. I understand him because him singing the chorus in “해달별" while dancing pretty vigorously looked really tiring… But he pulled it off! I told him he was really good and that he’s doing well. I feel like he was insecure a little about his performance as a vocalist and how well he does and I wanted to reassure him. It was time to move on so I told him bye~ Inseong really does have a warm heart and he’s such a nice person please give him lots of affection and reassurance

SEUNGJUN *BIAS ALERT*

*sigh* I really can’t express how great and caring Seungjun is. I can tell he truly loves and adores his fans, and it shows from the way he treats them. He said my name like, “Junior?” in a cute tone and I said cutely too, “Seungjunnie-hyung~” AHAHAHAHA. He immediately looked at my questions and more antics ensued.

Blue post-it note:
Q: POKEMON or DIGIMON, you can only choose one
A: *marks Pokemon* but went the extra mile to show his UNCONDITIONAL PREFERENCE FOR DIGIMON LIKE WHAT THE NOOOOOOO

Yellow post-it note:
Q: Is there a member you want to live with for the rest of your life?
A: Inseong Jihun

At first, he took a look at the blue note and I reiterated, “You can only choose one!” Without hesitation, he answered, “Digimon!” I was like WHAT THE HECK, NO YOU CAN’T CHOOSE DIGIMON OVER POKEMON OMGG.

He was so firm, he was like, “Digimon~” in a cute tone and I told him, “Why??” He seemed a bit sympathetic and marked Pokemon, but said, “Digimon~” again and decorated a box around the word Digimon. DANG IT SEUNGJUN. I was like OTL because I came dressed in a Squirtle hoodie because I thought he loved Pokemon more but that happened. I mockingly complained, “I came dressed like this too…” Seungjun chuckled and then proceeded to gently grab my arm and draw a little heart on the Squirtle patch design on my hoodie!!!

SJ: *in a Korean accent* Hearteu~
I internally died at this cute action like I AM NEVER WASHING THIS HOODIE AGAIN LOL

I also made sure to give him the letter I worked on. He then looked at my second post-it, which he thought about for a moment. At first, Seungjun wrote Inseong, so I asked him why. He said because Inseong is funny. BUT THEN LAST MINUTE Seungjun scratches out Inseong’s name and writes Jihun AND HE DIDN’T EVEN GIVE A REASON WHY LOL. So that made think like HMMMMM this ship really sails itself huh… Now I had to tell him that this was pretty much my last chance to see them…

Me: Actually, on the 22nd, I’m leaving Korea, so this is my last chance to see you guys. I’m really glad I got to see you guys often while I was here.
SJ: *in a cute pleading voice* Don’t go~ (AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH)
Me: I don’t wanna leave either!

And then this happened.


OMG I was so flustered when he asked when I’ll be back with that cheeky smile that I accidentally lapsed into English hahahaha. He probably didn’t understand what I said, but I had to move on ㅠㅠ!! Wait for me Seungjun, I’ll be back!! I really want to cry now… Hahahaha. And it ended cutely because I kept shaking his hand, and then…

Thank goodness. He is the best and he’s always so sweet!!

YOUJIN

Okay I’m going to start off my account of Youjin because right when I got to him, he asked me, “Are you a fan of Seungjun?” BWAHAHAHA he called me out!! I told him that I liked all the members but yeah, Seungjun was my fave… If he noticed that, then wow… 

And then it was like another round of deja vu because I told him I was from Hawaii and that he should come, and he replied, “I want to go too!” LIKE THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT WE SAID LAST YEAR AT THE FIRST FANSIGN LOL.

He looked over my questions and I told him they were from other international fans. He got super excited over the Overwatch question and his inner fanboy came out. 

Yellow post-it note:
Q: Which heroes (do you use) when you play Overwatch?
A: Roadhog, Reinhardt, and… the last part was a bit illegible but I think he wrote the name of a Korean Overwatch player named 후아유. [If anyone wants to help me out with deciphering that, it’d be much appreciated~]

He was so happy when talking about his mains for OW, but I had to tell him that I actually didn’t know the game at all loooool. I wish I could’ve nerded out with him but idk ㅋㅋㅋ He even asked me, “Isn’t Overwatch quite popular in America?” lmaooo which is true but yeah, I’m clueless.

Blue post-it note:
Q: What are you most afraid of??
A: Bugs! 1인칭 horror game.

So Youjin seems to be the least fearful in the group so I also wanted to know what scares him. He wrote “bugs” and I couldn’t believe like this guy didn’t flinch for the ghost prank or a VR zombie slashing him but he’s afraid of insects??

I’m not judging tho but dang.AND OKAY I SEARCHED UP THE HORROR GAME HE TALKED ABOUT AND THAT SHIZ IS NO JOKE.

OH HELLLLLL NOOOOO YOU CAN COUNT ME OUT OF THIS GAME CUZ SHIZ I WOULD PISS MYSELF DURING THIS VR EXPERIENCE

But Youjin is a cool chill guy who loves gaming so hit him up yo

HEEJUN

Heejun, Heejun, Heejun. You never know how he’ll be like. I heard from a friend that he’s different every time which is kinda true. The first time I met him, he was comical but on the quiet side, and we were kinda awkward… BUT THIS TIME WAS JUST OMG LOL.
He spoke some English to me even though I was talking to him in Korean which was cute. He said things like, “Where are you from?” and “Really?” Soooo silly. I complimented him on his English pronunciation and I DIDN’T NOTICE THIS UNTIL MY FRIEND SHOWED ME THE FOOTAGE SHE TOOK AND-

OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGG. Heejun’s also quite chill but he’s so funny agh.

Yellow post-it note: 
Q: Is there a concept you want to try?
A: BTS’ Blood, Sweat, Tears 
hOLY SHIZ IS IT WEIRD THAT I CAN ALREADY IMAGINE HEEJUN IN THAT KIND OF CONCEPT? he already bares his chest sometimes like omfg and I can totally see him pulling it off like shiz I AM READY

Blue post-it note:
Q: Heejun-ah~ Please write down your favorite color!!
A: Black, gray
Heejun forgot because he even asked himself out loud, “Which colors do I like?” I told him, “Why don’t you know??” HAHAHA. 

I told him I was l was leaving soon and he just replied, “When will you be back?” LOL. IDK, I wish I knew, then I wouldn’t have to leave y’all ㅠㅠ I told him bye and he was like, “bye bye!!!” 

Later on, the members picked random seat numbers from a box and the chosen fans could take a selca with them. SO LUCKYY. I WASN’T CHOSEN BUT UGH IT’S OKKK. 

Then they played 공기, which is a Korean bean game similar to Jacks. Jihun got really competitive and he almost kicked the stage LMAOOOO. Seungjun was really bad at it and he ended up last. Youjin was first, followed by Inseong, Heejun and finally Jihun secured a place by a hair. Seungjun’s punishment was dancing to their title track with aegyo LOOOOOL he tried his best but he looked so awkward omg

And that was it.
My last fansign with them.

I love them so much, because they’re all so wholesome and show their personalities unabashedly. All of them are SO DIFFERENT and the dynamics are just so interesting and charming. 

SORRY I cut it a little at the end but I have to go to class ㅠㅠ I’ll tweak this a bit later maybe but I hope y’all enjoyed this!!!!

anonymous asked:

I'm so glad Kirishima is getting so much spotlight, he really deserves it!!!! And it looks like hes gonna get more, since hes in the main group along with Deku, Uraraka and Tsuyu. I;m so hyped!!!

Honestly!!!!!!!!!!! That’s one interesting group tbh, Kirishima and Tsuyu’s interactions are always incredibly adorable to watch and seeing Kirishima interact for so long with pure and good people is gonna be hard on my heart (I mean, you know I’m 100% a bakusquad fan but they’re all at least in part assholes and Kiri fits with them just right, he can be just like Sero and Kaminari and I love it, but then his interactions with Amajiki have been so pure can you imagine an arc filled with that I’m already crying)

I just hope my other faves won’t completely disappear through this arc haha sigh

Anon said: So which Kacchan quote do you like best “Die your bacteria fucks, dieee!” or “BRING YOUR DAMN TRASH TO ME”?

LMAO SORRY ANON BUT MY FAVE GOTTA BE

WHAT A GODDAMN DISASTER THIS BOY IS

Couple-y things he likes to do...

BamBam: BB would prob be all about matching outfits with you; not an exact replica of what he’s wearing…but more like, if he had red hair, he’d ask you to include a subtle red accent in your outfit. Like a red bandanna tied around your wrist, red nails, or red socks. He’d prob take you shopping regularly and say things like “if you get this, I can match it with my..” or “Y/N we should buy this and then one day I can wear it, and one day you can wear it.”

Jaebum: remember that time JB was asked what sort of husband he wanted to be and he gave an exact scenario of waking up with his wifey in his arms  (◕‿◕✿) well anyway, I think Jaebum would be big on hugging his s/o at any given moment. Like you’d come into the dance studio when they’re finished practicing and he’d pull you down onto the floor and sit you between his legs with your back against his chest and just tell you how tired he is, but how happy he is now that you’re here. 

Mark: I think Mark would be so content whenever the two of you are just able to chill and watch YouTube videos or play games together. He would find so much enjoyment in showing you his fave channels and seeing your reaction to different gameplay (even if, sometimes, you have to fake your interest lol). He’d also prob be the biggest snackaholic whenever you two do stuff like this and he’d ask you to feed him MnMs or Haribo while he plays lol aw.

Youngjae: Youngjae would prob loveeee doing karaoke with you no matter what time of the day it is. He’d prob start off rly chill, just being goofy and having fun with you and then like 4 songs in, he would steal the microphone away and say you’re making his score low lol. And then basically the final 20 minutes of your session would be you chasing him around the room trying to make him let you sing, and him hitting every note perfectly while he holds the mic out of your reach. 

Jackson: If Jackson ever introduced you to his parents, it would probably be the highlight of his year and if you actually got along really well with them, he would literally melt into a puddle on the floor. If you liked hanging out with his mom especially, like took her shopping/for lunch/to the movies, he would prob be so in love with you and ask you to marry him after every occasion you hung out with her lmao. Family means everything to Jackson so seeing you so close to his own would make his lil heart so, so happy.

Jinyoung: You know how when you’re close with someone you can just sit in silence for hours and it’s never awkward and you never feel like you have to fill the quiet with conversation? That’s something I think Jinyoung would really appreciate in his s/o. Being able to just like lie with each other and read and tell each other funny stories and talk a lot, or not talk at all, would probably be his favourite thing to do and his ideal version of a ‘break’ from his normal, chaotic lifestyle.

Yugyeom: lol idk why but I feel like Yugyeom would really like getting up to no good with his s/o. Like playing drinking games and taking drunk selfies til *jackbam voice* 5AM would prob be so hilarious to him and it’d be great for you, too, because he’d really come out of his shell. Waking up the next day would be just as good bc he’d prob apologise profusely for drinking too much and get shy at the 377 selcas he took on your phone and then when you ask him about “next time” he would do his big ass smile and unconvincingly shake his head.

hi 👋 I just wanted to say I've been following your for ages & your tumblr is goals af - I also wanted to ask/say I was so disappointed to find that people on tumblr are just outright hating on acowar & completely disregarding the fact that it did have some wonderfully beautiful moments with our fave characters, there was more representation (I mean hello Helion & various other sexy poc) & we got a nice ending where no one died - isn't that what we have all been praying for since September!? Pt1

I’m not ignoring the fact that there were no flaws in her writing or some of the decisions she made about the plot but it’s just so sad to see what once was a wonderful & loving fandom (albeit as but of a salty one) become something nasty. I just wanted to ask how you felt about how no one is focusing on the good right now as well as looking forward to all the stuff in the novellas ☺️ Pt 2
——

Oh man! This is great! And I gotta tell ya, I have positive posts and theory posts READY TO GO! I’m just stalling on the posts cuz not everyone has read the book yet. So I’m waiting.

But a mini list of things I was/am super excited about in ACOWAR:

1) Maas FINALLY got more distinguished about skin color in this book! The illyrians were golden-brown. (It was odd when she said Lucien was too—but again not complaining.)

2) I’m happy that we have a main character who is gay. And I know that not everyone is okay with how it was done, but I said this before and I’ll say it again, I would rather Maas try and get it wrong then not try at all. And I know people who identify really REALLY hard with Mor’s story in this book—so it can’t be all bad.

3) We also got some GREAT Azriel moments!!! Which I honestly needed. He is an interesting dude. And Maas was on her game for his scenes. She did a LOT of showing and not telling when it came to his decisions and interactions ESPECIALLY with Elain. And let’s just say my heart grew three sizes.

4) She left us with mystery! I NEED to know what Nesta really is! I get she’s probably a witch, but by what the Bone Carver said—that can’t be all! I NEED to know why Vassa said Mr. Archeron was like a father to her! I need to know if Elain is a low-key shadowsinger, or if Truth-Teller allowed her to travel through the shadows! WHY DOES THE CAULDRON LIKE ELAIN???! It’s not supposed to feel! SO WHY was it showing Elain how mad it was when Nesta took from it? What did it show Elain when it lured her from the war camp, and did it have ANYTHING to do with her reaction to Azriel?!

5) The set up for NESSIAN was fantastic. Like. I can’t even explain how great it was when they likened her to a death god and him to a god of warriors. WHO BETTER TO WALK HAND IN HAND WITH DEATH THAN A WARRIOR?! 💀💔🗑 classic Maas meaning right there

6) LUCIEN GETTING HIS GROOVE BACK! That poor child has been cloistered away, living in exile in the Spring Court—he finally got to spend his wings! He got to go on a mini quest! He went into the library to get a book to READ FOR PLEASURE. He still loves Jesminda—that was pretty clear—but he is learning to be his own man again. He was surrounded by people who valued his opinion. By people WHO ASKED for his opinion! JAYSUS. And not I think he is gonna do big things. He’s gonna see the world, meet his real dad, Use his Spell-Cleaver powers to save Vassa and maybe fall in love with her. Because let’s be honest, she seemed pretty in line with Jesminda and Lucien seemed to value Jes’s choice to love him. Ugh. My sweet fox!

7) Nesta showed some serious vulnerability and she stopped acting like a jerk to push people/feeling away. She is a complicated being. And she showed a lot of depth in this book. I think she is 100% aware of the mating bond. But Idk about Cassian. And what were her and Amren really doing in the Court of Nightmares? Did Amren tell Nesta she’s a witch, or was Devlon the first person to say that to her? WHAT IS SHE REALLY?!

8) ARCHERON. SISTER. FLUFF. Dudes. Oh, my dudes. After they saved Elain and Nesta ran to Feyre first and then they all slept in the bed together JUST LIKE OLD TIMES. KILL. ME. DEAD. I WAS ALIVE! THE FEELS! It still causes me physical pain to think about it!

And gosh. I could go on. But I’ll stop here. Maybe make a post for later. LOL.

i’ve barely talked about er/uri when complaining about shingeko so i dont know why people keep believing the problem is that the ship died or damn even that my ‘fave’ died

like, let me be clear as fuck: is not that erw0n died, is how he died. he could have died on ch80 and yes it would be sad af, but also waaaaay way less shitty than him being dragged four episodes for nothing. cuz whats the point of making all the serum drama if it isnt going to bring any sort of conflict later on??? oh right, it was just to create drama at the moment. the story could have progressed without what happened on the rooftop. yes this could change and bring consequences later, but it seems like the fandom doesnt want this to happen at all which is frustrating. actions have consequences kids.

a lot of people have a problem with the passing of the story too. it went from four chapters full of flashbacks and way too much information, to a one year time skip in which they somehow reached the ocean as if it was in front of them all along but they were too dumb to see it before. like imo it seems like yams wants to finish the manga as fast as possible

the problem i have with the story is more than just “you’re mad your favorite character and ship died” stop invalidating any criticism to the story with that holy fuck

anonymous asked:

do you have science bros headcanons because i watched avengers again and i have a lot of science bros feels

SURE I DO I DON’T TALK ABOUT THEM ENOUGH THANK YOU ANON <3

  • post aou tony has kept a part of research sealed bc no one can use bruce’s lab if he’s not there to approve of it
  • they’ve pulled all-nighters designing stuff and doing research together and fallen asleep sharing the sofa more than once actually every time
  • whenever bruce drops a hint that there’s something he likes (idk ‘I had such nice green tea in that forgotten village in china once’ and the likes) three days later he finds stocks of that stuff in his kitchen/cupboards. the first two times he was weirded out, the third he realized it was tony being tony and genuinely wanting to *be friends* so he just took it in stride
  • bruce also took it as a personal victory that one day he managed to get tony to only drink tea rather than coffee
  • bruce is also a+ at cooking so more than once he cooked for the both of them/occasionally pepper/whoever else was around but same way tony caught on his hints re liking tea or this particular fruit or whatever else, he gets hints about what tony actually likes to eat and tries to go for that without being told
  • they have amicable disagreements on which star trek series is better but they don’t disagree on anything when it comes to star wars
  • they’ve had late night conversation whose data jarvis deleted the moment they were done in which they had extensive talks about the not so a+ parenting they experienced and regretted they didn’t get to meet before they were both in their forties
  • in bed they’re totally switches actually they switch also for who’s the big spoon or the little spoon
  • tony’s the one breaking the ice if it comes to making sex life spicier but then he’s at first surprised and then not so much when bruce first goes like ‘okay sounds cool’ and then proposes to add something 100% more intense to the mix
  • bruce has also stopped worrying about opening his closet and finding out there’s three new shirts hung inside it
  • more than once they used the labs to build completely ridiculous shit that was never gonna work out just for the kicks
  • no one wants to watch scifi or scienc-y movies with them (or even the x-files) because they always end up discussing how this or that works or if it’s within the laws of physics and everyone else is just like let us watch the damned thing
  • at some point they made themselves friendship bracelets but no one knows that. they’re like the most complicated bracelets anyone could come up with. (obv red/yellow and green/purple.) then bruce’s got ruined when he transformed next so tony made him another and he keeps that one with his stuff rather than wearing it so it doesn’t break
  • everyone is surprised that bruce doesn’t mind working with tony blasting metal music from the other side of the lab but he just shrugs and goes like nothing wrong with iron maiden why is everyone assuming I only listen to classical, this while tony is basically like where has this guy been all my life (the reverse happens if bruce happens to want to work with classical)

:D

During Phil’s latest live show on the 16th of March 2017, he spent a few minutes (30.30-35.20) just ranting about his degrees and his university experience. I loved that bit so much that I wrote down the first part of the “quote” and posted it here on Tumblr and the last couple of days, I’ve just been smiling so wide at all the tags people have added when reblogging. I think it’s safe to say we all loved that bit and it brought inspiration and smiles to so many.

I’ve compiled a list of all the tags on the quote post so far. It’s quite long so you can read them all below the cut. It took ages but it was so calming to read through all the love and appreciation written in the tags. If you don’t feel comfortable being part of this list, message me and I’ll remove you immediately! I don’t mean to make anyone uncomfortable.

Hannibal Rewatch: 1x01

Season 1, Episode 1 - “Aperitif”
or, LOCAL WOMAN HAS LOST ALL REASON, DOES THIS TO SELF

Heeyy all my buddies!

So I thought it would be a swell idea to rewatch Hannibal, because what is emotional stability good for, really? Very little, I’d say.

In my ~dreams~ I imagined writing posts covering the first two seasons that people could read if they were watching Hannibal for the first time, and that would eventually join up with my season 3 recaps to make one continuous chain. But then I realized two things:

1) that maybe I could actually provide something kinda interesting and a little more rare in tv commentary, in that I could relook at a series as a whole, knowing what it is they built over time, and talk about how the boards were laid, as it were

2) that I have no control when it comes to foreshadowing or pain

This latter realization was mostly about myself, and although it wasn’t a surprise it was valuable.

These in turn mean two things for YOU:

1) as a whole these posts will contain spoilers through the Hannibal series finale (it’s over & it’s perfect shhhh wade into the stream). Sometimes the spoilers will be specific, other times it will be more general knowledge of circumstances, which I think counts as a spoiler for Hannibal because so much of the joy/horror of this show is in being very much with the characters in what you are (not) aware of at any given moment. And I don’t want to take that from newbies, so we’re keeping these things on Alert.

2) probably this whole adventure is going to be primarily screen shots followed by me being like

…which was a joke but also, I am beginning to suspect, oddly accurate? Like I just want to make sure everyone is yelling enough and for the right reasons. I am a mere humble thinker of feelings, at your service.

Take, for instance, this, which we see in the very first word-free minutes of the television series Hannibal:

Just the face of a man about to walk forward into the rest of his life. And do you know what he does first? He closes his eyes. Do you know what happens when you close your eyes? That’s when the monsters can move.

a/b/o arranged marriage au

I was writing the outline for the wedding sabotage au until i got bored. So I watched one of my fave movies Marie Antionette and had this idea. Wrote this drabble in a couple hours. I’m tired but its cute. idk if u want more lemme kno of course (dnt worry i’ll still work on the other one too). As always, love you guys a lot and enjoy <<<333

It has come to my attention, after discovering a possible invasion and attempt to conquer Delfeur, that I, King Aleron de Vere, implore a disparate annex towards Vere. It would be unwise to take an area of Veretian soil and expect absolute subjection. The Delfeurean people are loyal to the crown of Vere and a war against our country will cause the death of a great many young men and would impact the taxes of both our nations. Raises in taxes will lead both our people to restless behavior and acrimony towards you, King Theomedes. For you will be solely responsible for this war. You must also take into consideration that when compelling my people under your rule, they too will remember that you are solely responsible.

I would like to make an offer that both kingdoms, Vere and Akielos, should find presentable and most suitable for avoidance in war. Prince Damianos, heir to Akielos, is of age to marry and is yet to be. It is in Vere, The Council, and my greatest interest and contentment that my youngest son, Prince Laurent de Vere, has recently come of age. From what I have heard of your most honorable son is that he prefers the physiognomy that my son bears. Prince Laurent is an intelligent young man but knows when to hold his tongue, follow orders, and sustain his duties. In my most unbiased opinion I see it as a very tolerable match and constitutes itself as a preferred one of the people when the knowledge that it keeps from war is greatly acknowledged.

I hope you take this into great consideration. For both my people of Vere and the people of Akielos have their lives in your most dignified hand.

Sincerely,

The Regent finished and looked up towards his brother, King Aleron.

“See, dearest brother, all you need is to sign the document. I’ll have it sent and we wait for King Theomedes’ answer.” The Regent gave a wicked grin and placed and pen and paper on the desk in front of King Aleron, who had his head resting gravely against his hand.

“Laurent goes off to marry some sweaty barbaric-”

“He is much more use there than he is here. Prince Auguste is the only heir we desire and Laurent wastes his time riding and reading books and when not doing that he is distracting Prince Auguste with such nonsense.”

“A royal marriage will not only be beneficial to this Kingdom but to Laurent as well. He will be forced to learn Akielon and practice the social cues of both Veretian and Akielon.”

SALT // MASTERLIST // REQUESTS CLOSED


Request: Not gonna lie would absolutely kill for a fic where reader actually turns to the dark side, bad temper gives me those vibes but who knows what’s in store 👀 also like you’re literally my fave writer I can’t believe someone can be this talented <3

A/N: This was the fic I was supposed to post on Thursday night but shit happened so I decided to post it today instead. This is pretty different than I usually write and I really like it? Idk I enjoyed it and I hope you all do, too! I based it off of a dream I had along with the request; [fic title based off of this song]

Warning: None

Word Count: 1975 (omfg)


“It has been over seventy-two hours since we last saw and heard from Finn and Rey. The Millennium Falcon is still in the hangar but one of our marked vessels are missing. No one has been able to locate them or reach out to either of the two. It has been declared the two have left the Resistance and are considered rogue.” Standing there with an arm crossed, holding the other as you bit on your thumb nail, your focus was set elsewhere. How did things get this take such a sudden turn?

Player!Jimin

And now it is time for the first half of the Busan line, the first member of the maknae line, a ray of sunshine whose voice is so angelic, even when he’s just speaking, it sounds like a lullaby, he has such a comforting, warm voice, I love his voice so much, Park Jimin aka chim chim

  • This post takes place in the college AU, you don’t have to read the college series to be able to understand this bc it is just to help set the mood but just in case there are people that do wanna read it, college!Jimin is right here
  • Visuals are first
  • Idk if I’ve ever used Danger!Jimin but it’s a shock if I haven’t bc that was actually a pretty cute look so I’m gonna use it here bc I love that look
  • That entire era could be player!chim tbh, he wore so many sleeveless shirts, he showed off those amazing arms that he worked so hard for, he was in jeans so the thighs were a thing and it was just a really good look overall
  • Of course, player!chim does the BST look and the orange hair and the red for a few months as well bc he can pull all the things off
  • Okay so I’ve got a couple looks for player!chim, just hear me out I have a plan (both of them are airport looks, my memory sucks so I couldn’t even begin to remember their dates just by looking at them but typically I can tell the era bc hair)
  • The first look is from the BST era I think, it’s more of a date look, it’s casual but has enough effort put into it that his date doesn’t think he just showed up in his pajamas but it’s all black!JImin bc that is my s h i t, he had on black jeans (aka my fave) a black turtleneck and then a black leather jacket !!!! and he had sunglasses on 1000000000/10
  • The second look seems like it’s from the Boy in Luv era, it’s more of a casual, I’m just here to chill look, it’s when he wore black leather (??) pants, a white tank top with a bit of promo for the LA Dodgers on it, what looks like some Timberlands, a black snapback that was backwards !!!!!!!!!! and then his backpack, a jacket around his hips (in some other pictures from that day, he’s wearing the jacket) and some headphones bc college!Jimin is forever off in his own world
  • Also just gonna throw this in there bc I love chim with tattoos but player!chim has a couple of tats, he has the MAMA tattoos and one on his collarbone that you can see the very end of when he wears t-shirts
  • Jimin is another flirt but he’s also a bit of a dater, he’s kinda in the middle
  • Okay so here’s the thing with Jimin, he’s really shy but at the same time, when he feels comfortable/in his element, he pops right out of that shell
  • He has moments where he’s really flirty and charming and can win anyone’s heart in under a minute (friendly reminder that it took Chanyeol 0.2 seconds to fall for Jimin and that was with Jimin just looking at him)
  • But he also has moments where he gets really blushy like when people approach him first, he gets a bit flustered and no matter how many times it happens, he never really gets used to that feeling bc it’s just o h
  • So he’s either the biggest flirt that’ll get anyone and everyone giggling like a child with their first crush or he’s the child with the crush that can barely make eye contact
  • Either way, people love him almost instantly and it’s not hard to see why, how does someone not love Jimin he’s so pure and cute and giggly and just his smile can bring so much happiness 
  • When he’s in a flirty mood, he does that thing where he’s leaning on his arm against a wall and talking to whoever he’s flirting with and he sends lil winks when they walk away with the promise of a date that night
  • He’s very playful when he’s flirty, he’s a super affectionate person as is so he’s always got his arm around them or he’s holding their hand and he playfully teases them a lot 
  • He’s always got really cute dates, going down to the beach at sunset, going to the local carnival/festival, going out on a romantic dinner
  • He’s another gentleman (all of BTS are) so he’s really polite towards his dates and they always have fun on the dates, he’s yet to have a boring date
  • Jimin would never hurt anyone, he’s a really sensitive person, he seems like he’s really in tune with the people around him so the “breaking up” bit is really hard but he also doesn’t wanna be flirting/dating someone and then start it up with someone else at the same time
  • He doesn’t like to lead anyone on so he never lets the relationship get too far, he always makes sure the other person knows this is all casual, no relationships are happening yet, etc.
  • You two meet when you take the same art class as him and you two become friends
  • You’re new to the school so you don’t really know about him or his reputation and you would’ve n e v e r guessed if you just went off of his personality
  • He’s so funny and precious and he’s so huggable, he always gives the best hugs, they’re really warm and he always smells really good
  • He’s s o talented and his drawings are always amazing and you’re forever complimenting him, which gets him really blushy and giggly and shy and that’s just super cute
  • You find out through some people in the class that he’s known to be a bit of a player, that he dates a new person every other week, that he’s never been interested in a serious relationship
  • You’re a bit sad bc you’d already started crushing on him and now you’re finding out that he’s not looking for a relationship and that he’s probably super used to being crushed on
  • You take the chance when he asks you out bc you figure you might as well, you’ve already got a crush, it’s not gonna go away by rejecting him
  • And just like everyone told you, he says it’s all casual when he’s dropping you off and that he’s not looking for anything serious rn and your heart is just ow
  • You two go on a couple dates and he’s always really fun and you find yourself forgetting about the whole casual thing every time bc he’s so sweet and kind, it’s hard not to want to be with him when he’s playing piano and singing for you with that beautiful voice he rarely uses
  • He starts developing feelings as well but he ignores it and goes on thinking that he’s okay with it being casual bc that’s always been what he wants
  • It doesn’t really work but it all comes to a halt when he sees someone flirting with you and then it’s just mm mm everything in him is not happy with this scene at all
  • He’s not used to being jealous so he’s not fully sure what to do, especially since you’re not technically his and he’s not yours so it’s not like he can just walk up and say excuse me I’m the boyfriend
  • So he does his best to show his emotions towards you on the next date, he makes it super romantic and he sits down with you and the two of you have a really long talk about how the casual thing isn’t working out for either of you
  • “We can make it exclusive on one condition”
  • “Name it and it’s yours”
  • “You gotta sing for me more often”
  • “Only if you kiss me afterwards”
  • “I think we have a deal”

hiiii idk why i'm so nervous but i really really wanna start writing fanfiction. ljke full out "woah this makes me feel stuff" fanfiction and i thought you'd be the best place to come for pointers because you're literally amazing but anyways do ylu have any suggestions as to 1. where to write it 2. starting tips 3. what not to do?? thanks!! i really really want to but i'm little scared to

OOOH, I WAS RECENTLY GIVING THE SAME ADVICE TO MEG BONNEY ON TWITTER. Okay, here we go. Let’s do this. 

How To Start Writing Fanfic for Beginners: 

  • Okay, so, the first thing we usually do is have a beta reader– someone who looks over stories and checks for writing flow, typos, and, most importantly in the case of fanfiction, characterization. You find one before you start writing so that you have a cheerleader who can talk about ideas with you and push you through when you feel like you wanna quit. This is a formality, though, and can be skipped. My one-shots usually are in the 20k+ range so I like to have three or four people look over them, but if I’m writing a 6k one shot, for example, I only have one beta reader.
    • I’m actually pretty sure that the origination of this practice actually came from everyone trying to figure out how to make friends in fandom. If you’re the beta reader on someone’s story, you’re automatically buddies. Google docs has made this way easier, though– it used to be long email chains. *shudders*
  • Step two, decide which host sites you’re going to post your fic on. Different fandoms are more popular on different fic sites. The most popular fanfic sites are http://fanfiction.net , http://archiveofourown.org (AO3, we call it), and sometimes tumblr, depending on the length of the fic! 
    • So, for example, the Percy Jackson fandom is really really into http://fanfiction.net (or at least was when I was writing for it?) That’s where you get the most reviews/comments and the most hits for that fandom. In the case of Teen Wolf/Stydia the most popular site is AO3, easily. But if the piece you wrote is a drabble (in the 1k range), you can also plop it on tumblr. If it’s in the 2k range, it’s acceptable to put it on tumblr under a “read more.”
    • For all these sites, you need an account, but AO3 is technically in beta mode (idk why; it’s been like that for multiple years?) and therefore you sign up and then have to wait for an invite. But it’s worth it because once you have an account, you can view the history of the fics you’ve read, bookmark faves, leave comments, and, of course, publish fics.
    • Unlike ffnet, AO3 also categorizes fics into fandoms, which is really really helpful if you write for multiple fandoms. Their sorting system is really good and really specific, which is why people use it. I think that, at this point, AO3 is undoubtedly the most diversely enjoyed site.
  • Here’s some things you definitely need to know about posting on AO3: 
    • (This is SUPER important), it’s considered REAL bad manners to tag characters/ships that aren’t the centric pairing. So, the fic is gonna ask you for characters and the ship. If you’re writing a fic where Stiles and Lydia are the centric pairing, you’re gonna fill in Lydia Martin, Stiles Stilinski, and then Lydia Martin/Stiles Stilinski. But say your story also has a few scenes with Scott? Either don’t mention Scott, or do “Scott McCall- Side.”
    • The reader should be able to clearly tell what type of fic it is by your tags. (Unless you don’t want them to know). You can create your own tags or you can use the site’s already established ones. AO3 tags can get slightly obnoxious but nobody’s going to call you out for that so enjoy. 
    • If your fic takes place within the bounds of the series, you tag it "Canon Compliant.” If it not only fits with the plot of the series but also takes place literally during the series, tag it “Missing Moments.” If it diverges from the plot line of the series, you tag it “Canon Divergent.” If it is after the series is over, tag it “Post-Canon." 
    • If it’s AU, tag the kind of AU it is. “Coffee Shop AU” “AU– The Hunger Games” “AU– Everyone Lives” “AU– Stiles is Olaf from Frozen and gets it on with Anna who is Lydia.” (Spoilers for my next fic.) (Just kidding.) 
    • ALSO when you’re posting, it’s a huge struggle because AO3 either requires HTML coded stuff (for italics, etc) or rich text. My suggestion would be either putting your fic on tumblr and copy and pasting the rich text from the finished post, or getting an account on ffnet and using their document uploader to c+p your fic into, then save it and copy and paste it into the rich text part of the fic loader on AO3
  • So now, ratings. 
    • Here’s what you’ve got: G,T, M, E. 
    •  G is like… no swearing, no mention of sex, you could read it as a bed time story to a 6 year old.
    • T is swearing, acknowledgment that sex exists, maybe some kissing (but you’re getting to shaky territory as soon as you venture anywhere remotely past second base) light, non-descriptive violence (there’s also a tag for violence under "archive warnings” because some people get triggered by it.)
    • M is lighter sex scenes (I would say anything that doesn’t describe genitalia? Idk, this is a real fine line. I think you’ll feel it in your bones. Or, bone, in the case of smut. 
      • Nailed that joke. 
      • HA GEDDIT. I did it again.
    • E is like, you’re going to hell for writing this, enjoy hanging out with satan in the fiery pits, I hope it’s worth it.
  • If you post on tumblr, tag appropriately. Tumblr tagging is different from ao3– you just tag to sort things, and so that the right people see your work. So, like, if you wrote a Stydia fic, obviously don’t tag it Sterek or Sciles because you’ll get hate, lmao. You can tag character names, but I would suggest you don’t tag “Stiles Stilinski” or “Lydia Martin” because the Sterk/Mrrish/Stlia shippers tend to attack you. Also, only the first five tags count.

And now, the Don’ts of fanfiction***

  • Make sure your spacing doesn’t look awful. 
    • It makes people not wanna read it 
    • You should know what regular spacing looks like. If you’re able to correct it so that there’s not eons of space between paragraphs, I would do that. 
  • Don’t say “Sorry for the bad summary I promise it’s better than it sounds” in your summary. 
  • “Their tongues battle for dominance” or other equally cliche dialogue
  • Original characters as main characters
  • Fandom crossovers are almost always rolled their eyes at in the fic community. Like, you can thrust your characters into a different universe, but normally, you can’t use the original characters. So by all means, write a Percy Jackson AU, but don’t make Fitzwilliam Darcy best friends with Annabeth Chase. 
  • POV SWITCHING IN YOUR FIC
    • Okay this is really delicate because some people can do it really well and some people can’t
    • Switching back and forth between character point of view within one section of your fic is really hard for the reader to keep up with and it tends to look clumsy. It’s a no-no. 
    • If you have divides between sections, that’s where you can switch POV. 
    • However, I tend to write almost all of my fics with just one POV. I pick Character 1 or Character 2 no matter how long it is. It’s cleaner that way. 
    • NEVER USE FIRST PERSON IN FANFICTION, IT IS UNIVERSALLY LOATHED. 
    • I need to remember this one– don’t describe clothes too much. You’ll sound like a cheesy YA novel. (I’m a hypocrite, okay?) 
  • Titles matter. Work hard on picking a title. I s2g it actually makes a big difference. Idk why. Titles. 

***Side note: All writing rules are all allowed to be broken. There is truly no such thing as a steadfast writing rule. The more comfortable you get with writing, the more comfortable you could be with breaking these rules. Does that make sense?

                                       HOLY SHIT THERE ARE A LOT OF YOU !!!

so, this is my 1,000th post, and i’m currently sitting at 337 followers, which i’m sure doesn’t sound like a lot when you compare the amount that a lot of people have, but i’ve only had padmé since january second of this year. that’s not even two full months, and somehow, still, over three hundred people have decided that my padmé is the kind of content they want to see. i’m still not sure why, but since i’ve hit such an amazing number and this is my 1,000th post, i wanted to do something nice for everyone and gush about how much i love you all. so without further ado, here’s my follow forever !!!

                                              THE DELEGATION OF THE 2,000

@aftcrshocks​ / @icaryian​ / @imhiscarer​ : to the shock of absolutely no one, i’m gonna take this moment to yell about my favorite person on this earth, kells. kells is probably my most staunch supporter on this website and in life, and it’s really……awe-inspiring ?? it’s amazing to me, the kind of love that kells has to give to her friends, and the unbelievably selfless ways she continues to show it day in and day out. my entire aesthetic on this blog was crafted by her, and she’s always willing to do anything at the drop of a hat, which is just !!! so much !!! we don’t deserve kells. i don’t deserve kells. she’s so talented and she’s so supportive and kind and i’d take a bullet for that woman. 

@jedibetrayer / @warcompass : in addition to being the best smad egg husband a senator could ask for, chloe is about 85% of the reason that this blog even exists, and i’ll always be forever grateful to her for that. her enthusiasm for star wars and for her muse is off the charts 100% of the time which is just A+ in my eyes. her writing is beautiful, her talent is off the fucking charts, and i just. straight up. adore that girl. 

@kybercore : sen is one of my newer friends and i’m so grateful that padmé brought me this lady because honestly ??? idk how i lived without sen in my life before now ??? sen’s writing is so amazing and her characterization is so on point and she’s always making me question my life choices every time she brings up a plot idea, but in the best way possible. i love her a lot ok.

@demandpeace : haley is just….my salt sister. like a soul sister, only closer, because we get salty about the treatment of our fave ladies and it’s EXCELLENT. i love haley even when she’s using her perfect writing to stab me in the back with padtine feels and i love her for giving me the powerful sassy space nobility girlfriends that i deserve. 

@masterofcraft / @triggrhappy : lillie was one of my first new friends on padmé and i’ll always be so glad and grateful for that. she’s been such a happy influence on my life since entering it, and has given me so many obidala feels it’s unreal. idk how i got to be so blessed but i’m so moved and grateful and never gonna stop being emo about it.

@coughbot​ / @crdered​ : MY SON. zach is my son whom i birthed and raised from infancy and is genuinely one of the sweetest and most talented souls i have ever ??? in my life ??? met ??? they write with the kind of elegance and cohesiveness that writers twice their age struggle with and i’m like. constantly amazed. also so fucking kind like call out post for zach for being TOO PURE.

@sempermemoriia​ / @penitenciia​ / @harlemforged​ : tj is pretty much my favorite of all time ??? tj is, first of all, unfairly fucking talented, and second of all, so thoughtful and observant and it’s kind of the best thing ever ??? i never have to worry that tj hasn’t read my rules or my headcanons because not only does he read all of them but also he incorporates them in everything he writes with me and honestly i love that man more than sharks love blood.

@rosecrime​ / @trustfunded​ / @redeemself​ : maddie aka my other best friend i’m so !!!! i love that girl !! i would die for her !! i’m so blessed to have so many talented friends in my life and i’m sure y’all are tired of hearing that word but EVERYONE !! IS SO TALENTED !! I’M SHOOK !! maddie is such a fucking powerhouse with her replies it leaves me shook all the time, and her characters are always so multi faceted and amazing. no one makes an oc like maddie, like you could throw an fc at her and she’d come up with a well rounded character in under an hour, i’m sure of it.

                                                THE LOYALIST COMMITTEE 

@tachiisms​ / @ofalderaan​ : liesl is hands down one of the kindest, if not The Kindest, person i have ever met on this godforsaken hellsite. i am like 100% sure she has done nothing wrong in her life, ever, and i am, frankly, in awe of her skill at writing and of the amount of positivity and love she graces my dash with on a daily basis. also her siri is so good i’m fucking Shook at all times.

@rebelsacrifice​ / @ofeffulgence​ : lyssa is so incredibly lovely it deadass amazes me all the time like what a machine with her replies ?? how do you do so many replies so fast ?? how are they all phenomenal ?? teach me ?? her characterization is always spot on and her replies are always so good and honestly I Die.

@rcbelborn​ / @eireniic​ : val pretty much constantly has me screaming, if i’m being entirely honest. i have never, in my entire life, looked at another writer on tumblr as ‘goals’ as much as i look at val as my life goal. her writing is so phenomenal and poetic and beautiful while still being coherent and concise and i stalk….everything….and it’s all amazing……i can’t believe this….

@scarificed​ / @warbones​ : i’m pretty convinced miriam is actually satan at this point and i’ve sold my soul to the devil or something but honestly if that means i get to read all of her stuff about oak and also padmé gets to kiss his face i’ll take it ?? i care so much about miriam’s oc’s and i can’t wait to read more of them tbh.

Rather subdued but also somehow shriek-y thoughts about 411

Guys, Bellamy was on FIRE this episode.  From “WHO DIED AND MADE YOU CHANCELLOR” to reminding Abby of how much they both love Kane to just never fucking giving up on his sister.  He was raw and angry and I loved every second of it.  I bet this was Bob’s favorite episode of the season because he got to be sassy and fighty and cry-y all in 43 minutes.

Also on fire? RAVEN.  AND THEY BROUGHT BACK SINCLAIR!!  That was amazing and I am starting to think that Becca might have also been ALIE, at least a little bit?  With all her “give up on pain and just go to space” shit she felt shady to me, but idk that might be because Becca herself was probably just a little shady.  But Raven CHOOSING LIFE in such a dark episode was a real bright spot for me, and I hope that she keeps talking to Sinclair because he is SUCH a lovely presence on this show.

Speaking of shady: DAMN JAHA YOU ARE A DISAPPOINTMENT ON ALL FRONTS, FOREVER for this.  They did a good job of selling him as the brains behind the operation and showing just how he manipulated Clarke into thinking this was the only option.  I still feel like they’re leaving Clarke as an enigma and rapidly running out of time, because while Eliza is selling the SHIT out of “Clarke is scared and conflicted and being pushed into this” I do think we need something more from Clarke that isn’t defensive plot exposition.

Murphy being the reliable cockroach he is was amazing, however, as is the continued canon insistence that Murphy is the only person Bellamy can beat in a fight.  (Sidenote: if Abby had tranqs, why not use it on Murphy right away?  Or did she just want to see what her son-in-law was made of?)  I am also into Abby the Rebel and I appreciated that she was like “shut up Jaha DID YOU LEARN NOTHING FROM SEASON ONE?”  Abby, bringing the realness, as always.

One of the things I *didn’t* love was the Niylah scene, mostly because it felt like it was there to give Clarke’s decisions context, which was needed, but…couldn’t she have talked to her mom about that? I feel like we’re way overdue for a Clarke/Abby convo.  It felt tonally off, anyway, like it was dropped in from an entirely different episode.  It also feels like Niylah has been reduced to being Clarke’s cheerleader, when last season she was allowed to show some spunk and challenge her decisions.  Idk, it wasn’t my fave.

Also not my fave: everything that happened in Arkadia.  The last scene between Jasper and Monty was heartbreaking and really wonderfully acted, but I’m not quite sure why Jasper had to turn it into Jonestown Part II.  That felt like “needlessly upping the stakes/going grimdark” in a way that made me very uncomfortable.  It also sort of made it about Harper and that doesn’t sit super well with me. 

Back to things that did work: Bellamy just straight up calling Clarke’s bluff and then her subsequently breaking down and being unable to kill him despite being certain that him opening that door will lead to the end of mankind.  Clarke had a choice between “the human race” and “Bellamy Blake’s life” and she chose Bellamy.  (I also really liked that Bellamy promised Abby he’d protect Clarke, because he knows– better than literally any one else– that Clarke’s safety would be her primary concern.) They’ve got a LOT of shit to talk about/fight about, and I wish we’d seen that this episode but I’m gonna keep my fingers crossed for the next one.

Octavia and Bellamy hugging was e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g to me, and while I really wished she’d actually said “I love you too” back to her goddamn brother– who just risked his life to get to her– “Skaikru gets 100 bunks and Bellamy gets one of them” was definitely Octavia’s way of saying I love you so I’ll let it slide.  I was also very into Octavia just being OVER Jaha’s bullshit, and if the next episode is just the Blake siblings snarking on Jaha and then staring him down I’d be all about that.

Sidenote: I really wanted Raven to radio in and be like “hey guys, so…I need a ride?” but being like “I AM ALIVE” was a nice moment too.

Next week: That guy who is a constant dick continues to be a constant dick, and I swear to god Bellamy and Clarke had better yell at each other for a solid hour because those two have some shit to work out.

Almost Identical

Prompt: Loving the Soulmate AUs. What about the ones where everyone has some sort of mark that is identical to their soulmate’s? And the fate just brings them together, but the Mark lets them know they were meant to be. Idk if you wanna do the other boys. But I thought it was cute. (oooooo and what if two of the boys’ soulmates were identical twins, just with different marks, and they all meet at the same time? I think they would die)

Note: aaaaaaaah, I haven’t written for Leo in what feels like forever, so I chose him and Raph (because they my faves.)

You and your twin sister Ella were identical in just about every way. Except for one. Your soulmate mark. Yours was a pair of swords, Katanas, according to a google search, with a bunch of music notes floating around them. Hers was a pair of Sais lined in red and a few roses.

It was eyebrow-raising to say the least. What on earth did your soulmates do for fun? The weapon theme made you think that maybe they worked together somehow. Or perhaps they were rivals. You had no clue. But it was curious. Very curious.

Leo sat in his room contemplating. His intense blue eyes were fixed intensely on the tattoo on his forearm. Unlike the other tattoos he had amassed over time, this one had developed over time. It darkened into his arm as he mutated into…well…whatever he was now.

Not quite human, and yet not quite inhuman either. Something in between. Yes, technically he was a giant turtle, but he would argue that he was more than the average terrapin. No, Leo and his brothers were something else.

And so he sat there on his bed, large green fingers gently tracing the marks there. The Katanas he could only assume were for him, which meant that the music notes must be for his soulmate, whoever they were. Maybe a singer or an instrumentalist? He didn’t know, but he would lay awake at night thinking about it sometimes. How he got so lucky as to even have a soulmate at all, he wasn’t sure. But he thanked his lucky stars that someday, somehow, he would meet the one meant for him.

You and Ella worked at the coffee shop downtown. It was small, quiet, kind of off the beaten path, but it was perfect. And on karaoke night, it became more perfect. A single spotlight, an emotional song, and suddenly the space became something different entirely. And though you would never admit it, perhaps it was a way to show off for a potential soulmate.

After a successful night at the shop, you and Ella closed up shop and started the walk home. It wasn’t quite dark out, the sun was still setting on the warm summer night, and something felt different. Like fate was waiting just around the corner. You were more right than you knew. And so you followed the warm feeling blooming in your stomach, the feeling that something big was happening.

As usual, you and Ella made your way towards the fire escape on the side of the apartment you shared, but something was waiting in the alley below.

If you asked Leo or Raph why they were there, they couldn’t have answered. They didn’t know. Nor did they know why they hadn’t told Donnie or Mikey about it. They hadn’t even told eachother. They had just kind of run into one another in the alley beneath a random fire escape. And when the warm feeling spread through their bodies, suddenly they knew. They were here for a purpose.

And the purpose just came around the corner.

The moment Leo set eyes on you, he knew. The way the mere sight of you made his legs feel like they were made of Jello and the slow smile that spread across your face sent a flurry of butterflies through his stomach.

“Hi there,” you waved shyly, unable to stop smiling warmly at the tall turtle in the sapphire mask.

“Hello. Ma’am.” He tried to speak, but the words were hard to form. “I. Wow. Hi. You’re. Uh.”

You stepped forward slowly, eyes never leaving his as your small hands took hold of his large green one. You pulled down his arm to look. You already knew what you would find there, but you had to see for yourself. There on his green forearm was the familiar mark that you had spent so much time looking over. You held up your arm beside his, and his blue eyes looked to yours as though he had suddenly realized the meaning to everything. The world had clicked into place, everything was clear. A world of darkness suddenly flushed into light.

“I’m (Y/N),” you provided. He took a few shallow breaths before responding.

“Leonardo.” He replied. You loved the sound of his name. You stood there looking up at him until you couldn’t take it anymore. You hugged him. Tightly, warmly, nuzzling into the crook of his neck before pressing about a dozen kisses to his cheeks. At first, Leo was taken aback. Hugging was not commonplace for him. He had never held anyone as tightly as he held you. And God, he never wanted to let go.

Time is perhaps one of the biggest enigmas existing in the world.

For how does on define the coming and going of existence? Why is there such a need to take the state of simply being and define it as a comprehensible concept? How is it possible that we have taken something that is limitless and have restrained it to boundaries of words such as decades, years, minutes?

Yet more curiously is perhaps the fact that emotions impact time.

Not time in its pure essence – where an hour is sixty minutes and a minute is sixty seconds – but in the way how one experiences time.

For how can it be that sometimes a year is too short, feels like just a blink of an eye while some moments seem to last an eternity?

In Jim’s life, there are many moments that have since past that he wishes had lasted longer.

Being young, unburdened and free, running down the fields with the grass tickling his toes, Daisy at his heels with the wind rustling through his hair and laughter falling freely from his lips.

Christmas when he was eleven, sitting at grandma Kirk’s feet with Sam and completely enraptured by the photos and stories she shared about their dad, his mother watching them fondly yet with sadness in her eyes.

Leonard dragging him down to humid but beautiful Georgia for a week on a well-deserved break during their second year at the Academy, having bourbon on the patio while Mamma McCoy bakes cobblers in the kitchen and Joanna runs amok in the garden.

They are good memories, treasured moments that Jim wishes could’ve lasted a lifetime.

Yet instead what seems to last a lifetime are the moments which he wishes he could just forget about. Those moments that make him want to take the concept that is time itself and turn it back.

Twelve years old and clinging to Sam’s arm watching as grandma Kirk’s casket is lowered down into a grave on the family grounds, the sun bright and the sky clear in an almost mocking gesture.

Arising from being dead only to learn he’s lost the only father figure he’s ever had, remembering kind words, honest advice and how he’s never said “dad” and that now he never will either.

An “I love you” spilling from his lips, tilting what feels like his entire universe on its axis.

Yet time can not be reversed, memories not be forgotten and emotions can not be unfelt.

He will swallow, ignore the ticking of the clock that dictates time and move on.

Or at least, he tries.

Yet fate will not let him.

For one day over lunch Leonard asks: “Do you ever wish you hadn’t said it?” His eyes down on his plate and eyebrows drawn together into a frown.

Jim’s heart clenches and somewhere in the back of his mind, part of him weeps. “I can’t turn back time, Bones.”

Hesitant, guarded, careful, Leonard looks up. “What if you could?” His voice is a mere whisper yet it’s all Jim hears despite the bustle of the canteen around them.

“Do you wish I hadn’t said it?” Jim asks, his voice shaking and the words like I do not making it past his lips.

“I don’t know.” Leonard says, confused.

Jim looks at him, then.

At the war waging just behind Leonard’s eyes. At the half-smile half-frown that is both fond and affectionate yet fearful and hesitant at the same time.

He thinks of rivers of rain running through muddy sand, of little specks of green and of hope.

And Jim thinks that perhaps, he doesn’t want to turn back time after all.
