im really bad at writing but may i interest you in my silly thoughts

The First Date: Aftermath

Soooooo I thought I’d try my hand at a little fanfiction writing. This is a first attempt so….yeah. Some of the dialogue at the beginning is directly from the date quest so Pixelberry gets credit for that! Anyway I hope you enjoy it! Could maybe be more than a one-shot but we’ll see :)

Warnings: Some language
Around 1,200 words.


Alex walked into Hunt’s Monday lecture not quite sure what to expect, as amazing as the date was, nearly being caught by Jenni brought the reality of her and Hunt’s relationship to the foreground. The risks were real, and after all the time she spent trying to persuade Hunt that they were worth it the tables had turned. Hunt was very convincing in his “I’m in this, I’m all in” speech –plus that kiss, damn that kiss,— but over the last couple days Alex had spent too much time going over every possible scenario in her head and they all, for the most part, ended in flames. She sat next to Addison who shot her a mischievous grin, “Ready for today?”

Feigning ignorance Alex replied, “What about today?”

Addison rolled her eyes. “Oh come on! It’s the first class since the big night! Don’t act like you haven’t been thinking about h—”

“Addison!” Alex whispered dangerously

“–im the whole weekend, I know I would be,” she finished with a dreamlike expression on her face.

Alex gave her a look. “Seriously, Addi you nearly gave me a heart attack. We can’t talk about that here.” Scanning the students around her Alex concluded that everyone was too wrapped up in their own drama to even notice the exchange. This relationship was really going to test her nerves.

Just then, Hunt walked into the class and cleared his throat. As the class began to settle he looked up at Alex and gave her a quiet smile before beginning his lecture. Her heart gave a flutter and she couldn’t help but smile back. Relaxing a little, Alex directed her attention towards Bianca and Jenni who had just sat in front of them loudly discussing what sounded like a fascinating conversation on the best tactics for stalking someone on social media. Hunt glared up at them. “What? It’s not like we missed anything,” Bianca snapped.

Addison raised her eyebrows at Alex and mouthed “wow”. While Bianca generally had a bad attitude, she was usually respectful towards Hunt; Alex was surprised by her brash response. Maybe Daddy reduced her credit card limit she thought smirking. Hunt wasted no time putting Bianca in her place; he looked down at the paper in his hand, a little smile pulled at his lips, a look that Alex knew meant he was about to verbally devastate someone.

“Well, perhaps not today, Ms. Stone, but clearly you missed some of the main points of recent lectures.”

As he handed Bianca back her paper Alex saw the ‘C’ emblazoned on top; she loved the way he could do that.

“A 'C’!? Do you even know who I am?” Bianca demanded.

“Believe me I’m well aware” Hunt responded, unimpressed.

Alex was reveling in the fact that her Hunt just shot down one of her least favourite people when she saw Bianca glance at Jenni, a triumphant grin spreading across her face. Oh shit.

“Well, Professor, I hope you’ll take a moment to reconsider. I may not have understood every part of your lecture, but I do know a very interesting tidbit about you and a certain someone dancing on Catalina Island.”

Alex’s stomach dropped and Addison shot her a panicked look.

“I saw you and her on Saturday night when I was at my uncle’s wedding!” Jenni added.

The class erupted in excited whispers. Alex’s mind was racing. She was trying to catch Hunt’s eye but he was staring furiously at Bianca and Jenni.

“I don’t know what Jenni thinks she saw, but I would advise you to reconsider your attitude right now, Miss Stone. The faculty does not look kindly on students who attempt to blackmail their teachers. You’re far better off studying than spreading silly rumours.”

Alex thought he must’ve lost his mind trying to call her bluff; she looked nervously at Bianca who surprisingly backed down. The matter settled, Hunt continued handing back papers. Once he was turned away from Bianca and Jenni, they started whispering; Alex leaned in to catch what they were saying.

“OMG, I can’t believe Hunt burned us like that. Not. Cool,” Jenni whined.

“Ugh, whatever. He’ll wish he’d changed my grade once we’re through with him. All we have to do is show everyone proof,” Bianca said confidently.

Alex was glad she could count on Hunt to be calm and collected, ever the professional, she thought smiling; but at the same time she hated that she had no idea what he was thinking. Was he actually worried? What did this mean for them? What was their next move? Alex had a million questions racing through her mind and before she knew it everyone was standing up. “Uh, Alex?” Addison said cautiously. “Time to go. Class is over and we’re meeting Ethan for lunch, like now.”

Brought back to reality she looked for Hunt. He was discussing the likelihood of him granting Jake an extension on their latest project and judging by the way his brow was furrowed the chances were not good. “Go ahead Addi, I…um…need to…”

“I figured.” She smiled encouragingly. “I’ll cover for you with Ethan”.

“Did I ever tell you how awesome you are for going along with all this insanity?” Alex said gratefully.

“You could mention it a little more often…” Addison pouted jokingly.

“Well, you are. I owe you a drink…although after this I might need more than one.” Alex saw that Jake had left. She suspected he’d received a brutal tongue lashing on time management and the reality of Hollywood’s deadlines.

“Good luck!” Addison squeezed her arm and left.

A few students were still milling about as she approached Hunt.

“I’m sorry, Jake but having a concert to go to isn’t enough to warrant a—oh”, his face softened. “How can I help you, Alex?”

“Um…Professor I was wondering if I could talk to you about…"—she paused fabricating a reason—"my grade on the most recent assignment.” Real original, Alex.

“Of course. Do you have a free period now? If you wouldn’t mind discussing it in my office I believe there’s another class starting here any minute.”

“That would be fine. Thank-you, Professor.”

The minute Hunt closed his office door Alex started, “Holy shit, wha—"and then she felt his lips, gentle but with purpose, against hers . Alex melted into it for a second before pulling away. Flustered, she tried to remember why they were there in the first place. "As wonderful as that was, not to mention bringing a significant number of fantasies regarding this office to life, I think we have some more important issues to address.”

Hunt raised his eyebrow. “Fantasies? Please, do tell.”

Alex rolled her eyes. “Another time. We need to discuss what happened in class.”

Hunt sighed. “I know we do, but, I wanted to remind you why we’re doing this in the first place before…well…before you tried to end it.”

Even though that’s exactly what she had been considering Alex was taken aback. “And what makes you think I’d try to end it?”

Hunt locked eyes with her. “Honestly, I’d be disappointed if you weren’t. It’s the logical choice. We both knew that there’d be risk involved with us. Having our fatal flaw exposed so early in our relationship is probably a giant, neon sign telling us to stop while we still can; while it’s still conjecture and rumour; while all Bianca and Jenni have what is most likely a blurred photo. It’s safer…” She felt a knot in her stomach as he said this. It was all trueIf they ended this now, they could both get out of it unscathed. “But,” Hunt stepped closer, his face inches from hers, “in spite of all that, I hope you’ll stay.”

RULES;;
1. REBLOG IT, make those notes boom!
2. TAG ANYONE WHOSE “APPLICATION” YOU
LIKE AND/OR MATCHES YOURS UNDER “LET’S SHIP IT”.
3. AND/OR TAG ANYONE YOU WOULD LIKE TO
SEE MAKE AN APPLICATION UNDER “SHOW YOUR SAIL”.
4. BOLD EVERYTHING THAT APPLIES TO YOU
OR YOUR MUSE & EXPLAIN WHERE NEEDED.
5. HAVE FUN.

reasoning for this meme;; this is a meme to help you have access to everyone’s preference in shipping. everyone has their own desires for the subject and sometimes we stumble into a really good one, other times we regret, and at times they are just mediocre. if everyone just posted their very own profile of preferences in shipping, then you might just find your very best ship partner that much easier! just remember to tag a mun (or multiple) who posted an application that resonates with yours and if so far, no one’s application has piqued your interest but you would like to see a particular mun’s stats, just tag them (gently) in the appropriate section below.

LET’S SHIP IT !?! TAGGING: nobody because i am the first to make this!! ;D
SHOW YOUR SAIL !! TAGGING: @dereliquit, @unstoppablefate, @waningxmoon@moraldysplasia@albitails, @aoxre, @psythe@kingxfmischief@gin-ichimaru, @saisci, @twobasstards, @peoplejuiice, @ifrinncu@tenxcious, @dearnicolai, @hyperdetect, @talentedropout, @eshajjouri, @shiicn, @tefechi, @duckisms oh my gosh i’m laughing so much–pls love me & don’t feel like you have to do this either!!

THE MUN

Mun Age: 15 or under | 16+ | 18+ | 21+ | 25+ | 28+

!!!

How Many Blogs: 1    2    3    4    5+

this is extremely important… i only have ONE blog which means i’m pouring all my effort into this one place. i honestly don’t mind if someone has two blogs, but usually if i see more than that, i get skeptical about how swift one might lose muse for a specific blog. 

Type of Blog: Main | Secondary | Side

i only got one, so i would hope this is the case lmfao!

How Many Muses: Solo | Dual | Multi

this is extremely important! with only one blog and one muse, the aim is development but also to avoid any ruts. it’s stated in my rules but i won’t be shipping with anyone who has more than one muse on their blog.

Type of Ship: Single | Dual | Poly | Multi for each AU | Multi but Single for each AU

you would think i couldn’t highlight two of these. i am a single-shipper! however, with my muse having an interest in polyship, i would be willing to try it out and see how it works. i have seen one in the past and it looked beautiful. but yes, it’s potential hence why i italicized it. however, i lean more toward single-shipping since i’m familiar with it.

Type of Verse: Single | Multi Main | Multi AUs

my partner’s doesn’t need to be single-verse. i’m fine when they are multi-main or multi-au tbh BUT i do insist on being in their main verse, lol!

Activity: Sparse | Leisure | Weekly | Daily | Multiple Times A Day

okay, how is it that i can do all of these? i legit thought i was a leisure for the longest time but i’m actually a fast rper when i’m into a thread or muses interactions. often times, if my interest is piqued i can reply multiple times in a day but if not, then it will be at a daily pace. i italicized weekly because if a thread doesn’t hold my muse at the moment, it could take me a week to get around to it. in shipping, i would probably hope for the same enthusiasm from my partner and thus, seeing replies on a daily to multiple times a day basis. of course, i’m understanding when situations arise but if it’s just frequent lulls or you happen to be a weekly replier? it might be a little too excruciating for me.

Writing Length Preference: One-Liner | Para | Multi-Para | Novella | Match

yeah… pretty much i’m flexible on this and it depends on the scenario that is unfolding between the muses. i usually do match the other mun’s length but i don’t keep it my focus? it just happens most of the time. i did italicize one-liner because i wouldn’t be able to write a ship with only doing one-liners all the time. i enjoy getting in depth and really fleshing out the development with muses.

Thread Flow: Multiple Scenarios At Once | Sequential Story Line

i will always want progression and thus, i look for sequential threads. mostly focusing on one thread, completing the current ongoing plot or progressing it forward (if per se, they need to escape from some bad guys, i would ensure the thread finishes before posting a silly mundane thing in the askbox irrelevant to the ongoing thread unless if it was crack). of course, if there isn’t any driving plot or scene ongoing atm, multiple scenarios at once of a ‘Slice Of Life’ is p fun.

Planning Process: Plot | Pre - Established | Go With The Flow

okay, so i only plot where i feel it is necessary? for example combat, adventure, some compelling happening, disaster, etc… otherwise, i usually only like to set the scene and then have the muses take the reigns from there. often i won’t plot at all except for a starter post at the ‘greeting stages’. after that, my muse can often take the lead whether it’s by popping into someone’s askbox or shooting random starters.

Do You Write The Do: Smut | No Smut 

yes!! not even going to lie, i love to write smut where there is chemistry. not that i write it often (i haven’t for once written it on this blog). but i know for sure if i ship w/ someone, it’d be with someone who’d be up for writing it and is of age.

Genre: Slice Of Life | Fluff | AdventureActionAngst | Horror | Dark Themes | Crack

yes, all the things pls. i want a fully rounded ship with a lot of development, strife, stuggle, cute, sweltering hotness, give it all–and yes, i’m willing to write even the darker themes. this obviously just depends on the interactions between the muses and who the other muse may be? currently Gale is not some sadistic, evil muse so it wouldn’t really be him but he definitely has had moments of being not so kind.

Social Level: OOC Post | AskboxIM | Tag | Skype | Kik | LineTexting

let me elaborate. i want to communicate! i want to see the enthusiasm levels! and gosh, tagging me in things, making a tag for our ship, posting about our ship ooc, sending memes/prompts when applicable, sharing ideas through IM or just spamming each other when the other mun is online, sharing skypes to further just… talk all day and perhaps even sharing some mobile way of contact. i love using kik or line to pretend that the muses are texting one another (but i usually ensure that Gale received their phone number via rp first before i allow that). and just basically, being friends and being super comfortable and having a lot of endless fun!! and then breaking each other  c ause someone had to go do the a ng st. <3 LOL!

Extra: Unrequited | Love Triangles | Bromance | Crossover | Strictly Canon | Incest | Selfcest

so, i didn’t have a place to put these? but, yep. figured i should put them somewhere! i love unrequited ships so if your muse develops a crush on mine, go for it! also love triangles?! i never see these on tumblr tbh cause… it’s tricky business especially if you involve more than two muns, this may be even better suitable for muns who rp multi-muse blogs and coordinate it with one other mun who also has a multi-muse blog but… ah well! bromance is a yes and so are crossovers, though Gale is an OC… but, just basically meaning i’m willing to ship with a canon muse, too.

THE MUSE

NOTE (optional): cross out anything your muse prefers in a male, italicize anything your muse is prefers in a female, if fine with either simply bold it. also keep in mind that muses are ever-changing, especially through development and preferences can shift along with it if the mun wills it. if there is a preference not listed, add it in your additional words to keep the meme standard.

Current Status: Single & Not Looking | Single Ready To Mingle | Crushing | Dating | Married

Romantic Orientation: Panromantic | Polyromantic | Heteroromantic |
Homoromantic | Biromantic | Demiromantic | Aromantic

Sexual Orientation: Pansexual | Polysexual | Heterosexual |
Homosexual | Bisexual | Demisexual | Asexual

okay wow, a lot of you might be wondering why this? Gale doesn’t really know his sexual orientation. he only has done heterosexual so far and it would take a loooooot of encouragement for him to do that again, he really likes the fluff with girls though. thus, he is more curious than anything right now about his sexual orientation. there are further reasons behind this but do know that Gale does not officially know where he stands. he currently in rp, stated he wanted to try a polyship but judging Gale and how smitten he can get with someone, i don’t know if he could handle a polyship. and personally, as the mun, i don’t think i would have such a great time writing smut for a heteroship unfortunately; there’ll just be a hell of a lot more fluff if i did a heteroship.
