49.2% I voted for 15 min straight and never want to see the words "recaptcha" again also thanks for doing this buddy you're the best. prompt request: sports AU where magnus is the star player and alec insta nuts when he meets him
the game had been amazing. no, actually scratch that… the game had been the best game they’d played this entire season.
magnus was always a proud captain but there was something about this game in particular that had left him speechless. luke had been on top form, saving every damn ball that got anywhere close to the goal. raphael had been wildfire across the field, like a scalpel in tight plays and three times as fast. elias had been a champion, his communication better than it usually was which was always top notch. and magnus? well fuck. he felt like a fucking god. four of their seven goals had been slammed into the net by himself and it was coursing through him something burning hot as their bodies slammed together and the crowd roared.
the stadium was a blaze of screams and shouts, bodies rolling through the bleachers, horns blaring and catarina hit them on the field, yelling magnus’s name over and over again as luke hoisted his body over the rest of them. it was a thousand smiling faces, sweat dripping and elbows knocking as they tumbled off the green and back towards the locker rooms, elation heavy on the air.
the locker room was a buzz and magnus heard his name a thousand times, people cheering at him and hollering, but mostly all he could hear was the panting of his own breath, the dripping of his sweat as he stalked back towards his locked. but as he turned the corner he came face to face with a boy who looked vaguely familiar. he was all dark hair, the white jersey of a ball boy clinging to his lean arms and chest, big hazel eyes wide as they stared at each other and magnus’s chest did something he didn’t expect it to do.
prompt: bughead AU (inspired by the Betty/Jughead insta profiles) where Betty meets Jughead in New York and they start up a romance. Betty's been updating her instagram detailing their time together and back in riverdale Kevin & Veronica swoon over their pics (while also stalking Jughead's profile to learn more about him)
A/N: requested by the creative @jeemyjamz!! I had so much fun making this, even though it was proven a bit difficult. I hope you guys are happy with the results!
“..Okay, Betty. You’ll be fine, it’s only the first job you’ll have on your resume. One that defines your work ethic, and all jobs after will reference this one, and-” Betty said, speaking to herself, as she walked into the newsroom that she was now a part of. The newsroom echoed with keyboard clicks, and the aroma of freshly brewed coffee filled the room.
She felt a bit flustered watching everyone, and didn’t know where to go. “Lost?” a guy about her age asked, furrowing his eyebrows. “Yeah, how’d you know?” She asked, a nervous expression written on her face. He chuckled, Why was he laughing?,she thought.
“Your expression is giving me the impression that you were, you looked like you were going to faint.” He replied, rubbing the back of his head.
“Where are my manners? I’m Betty Cooper, it’s nice to meet you” She smiled, trying to make a good impression. Her mother’s words echoing through her head, First impressions are everything, Betty.
“I’m Forsythe Jones, but everyone calls me Jughead” He spoke, smiling shyly. Her name finally registering in his brain, and he furrowed his eyebrows in confusion. “..Is Betty short for Elizabeth?” Jughead continued.
She nodded her head, and he cheered “We’re cubicle mates. Well, more like cubicle neighbors, but it’s the same principle.”
“You seem so excited, why’s that?” Betty questioned, walking with Jughead towards their corridor. She watched as his lips formed into a nervous smile, as he sat down in his swivel chair.
“Everyone in this office sorta sucks, they’re all worn out, but I have a good feeling about you Cooper.” He said doing finger guns, swirling back towards his laptop.
Betty knew that her job here was never going to be boring, now that she knew Jughead.
A couple of weeks have passed, and Betty and Jughead were practically attached by the hip. Their jobs were so similar they had to work with each other all of the time, they spent lunch breaks, and weekends together. Neither of them minded because just as Jughead stated, Everyone in that office did suck, or at least according to Betty. Lately, things had been weird between them because they had kissed, and nobody wanted to address it.
It was a cool, spring night in NYC, and Betty was up early facetiming her two best friends who still live in her hometown. Their social medias were filled with candid pictures of each other, so naturally Betty’s new romance is the item of conversation,.
“…And then he just kissed you? But did you like it?? That’s the real question, B” her best friend Veronica questioned, raising her eyebrows.
The doorbell rung, but who could it be this late at night? She looked through the small peephole in her front door, and started freaking out. “Guys, it’s Juggie, what should I do?” She whispered, running towards the laptop.
“Make yourself hot!” the duo in the screen whispered back, “Just leave us here, we won’t do anything!”,Kevin whispered. Betty threw on some lipgloss, shaking out her hair, putting on cuter pajamas. The doorbell rang again, and she opened the door trying to look as effortless as possible.
“It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, Who is already sick and pale with grief, That thou, her maid, art far more fair than she.” Jughead smirked, quoting Romeo and Juliet, a movie that they’ve watched on several occasions.
“Ay me!” Betty said, continuing their Shakespearian banter, tucking a piece of hair behind her ear. Jughead walked into her apartment, staring at her with a loving gaze. Betty began to look increasingly frustrated, Jughead thought it was cute, but he was concerned.
“What’s the matter, Bets?” Jughead asked, looking at the blonde who was ready to explode.
Betty exhaled before yelling at Jughead,“You’re the matter, Jug! We haven’t talked after that kiss, and I was convinced that you didn’t like me back. But you keep staring at me like that, and I can’t-”
Jughead interrupted Betty in the middle of her soliloquy, making Betty sigh in frustration. “What?” She replied, with an annoyed expression.
Jughead grabbed the sides of her face, kissing her passionately. Everything fell silent, and the two were there for a minute or so, finally separating with unshakeable smiles on their faces.
“Betty, I like you, only you. I came over here because I realized how much of a dick I was being, and I was hoping you would forgive me. I needed to figure out how I felt. Would you, Elizabeth Cooper, do me the honor of being my girlfriend?” Jughead asked nervously, looking down at the ground.
“Yes!” Betty replied, engulfing Jughead in an embrace.
Kevin and Veronica were cheering on their side of the screen, Betty completely forgetting they were there. “Damn Betty!” Kevin cheered, earning a high five from Veronica.
Betty facepalmed watching her boyfriend walk over to the screen, “Are these the famous Kevin and Veronica?” He questioned, “How’d you know?” Veronica retorted.
“I might have talked his ear off about you guys, and shown him about a million photos.” Betty confessed, laughing.
“We like this one” The duo in the the laptop chimed, smiles on their faces.
“I like him too” Betty said, earning a smile from Jughead.
can we talk about how good and pure jesse and wally are?
like they were just the two smart, impetuous kids literally dragged into this world of metas by their crazy families (particularly their over-protective fathers who are trying to keep them OUT of trouble)… but they kinda coped with it together. Jesse’s a quick-thinker and Wally’s quick on his feet and… they both just love the idea of helping people and doing as much as they can. Like they just compliment each other so well.They listen to each other and respect each other and get along… they have this nice friendly rapport to build a relationship on. It’s so clear they just enjoy hanging together …even doing nothing. I low-key LOVE it.
It’s such a natural build too. Because it’s slow but it’s not painfully slow. Like so often TV couples will have the slow-burn that pines for 12 seasons and a movie without ever properly getting together (except that one time when they were drunk or undercover or body-snatched by aliens). Then there are the couples (particularly in movies) with massive amounts of insta-chemistry: they meet and hookup and were just meant to be until drama happens. Then there’s the pre-established friendship that slowly turns romantic and is a little awkward to get started. But Jesse and Wally didn’t ask each other out the first time they met. They just slowly got to know each other and were attracted to each other. Jesse missed him and he missed her… so when she came back she saw the flirtation between them and decided to act on it. wally expressed his doubts about pursuing anything and she accepted it. And then… just after expressing mutual support, friendship, and affection they decide to take a jump…and then she has to leave to go home to Earth II.
It just irks me that they’re from two different universes. Talk about long-distance.
