is anyone even surprised at this point

let’s talk about a ptsd thing that’s called sense of foreshortened future. i don’t see anyone ever talking about it here and i think that it’s important that people know that what they experience is nothing but another symptom of their mental illness.

So what is it?

Basically, sense of foreshortened future is a feeling or a belief that for some reason you won’t have a long and fullfilling life. You feel like you will die soon – or sooner than expected – and therefore you shouldn’t make any long-term plans. You try to avoid long-term relationships, you don’t have any career plans, reaching your birthday - hell, sometimes even managing to surivive the week surprises you. 

You feel like you’ll never have a normal life because you’re not only broken beyond repair but also can’t trust anyone anymore. It is an incredibly depressing feeling that makes you feel like there’s no point in… anything, really? Every activity becomes dull and pointless and you don’t know what drags you though life at this point.

I know it won;t make the feeling go away but I want you to know that this feeling is NOT a reflection of reality. You’re not broken beyond repair and you will have a normal happy life if you work on your recovery. making plans is not pointless. You deserve to be happy and you will be happy. Don’t let PTSD and its symptoms convince you otherwise.

You’re sitting in the backseat of the impala, looking out the window at the scenery. Dean, of course, is driving, and Sam is sitting on the passenger side, sleeping. You have a hard time sleeping in the car, so on long car trips like this, you have a hard time. Thankfully, Dean is usually always awake as well, and serves as your entertainment.

Growing up as the youngest Winchester sibling was not always fun and games, especially being a teenage girl. As much as your brothers love you, they know absolutely nothing about teenage girls. You more often than not felt like you were raising yourself, but you wouldn’t have it any other way. Your brothers are your rock, and you would never leave them.

You can barely remember the first time you’d met Dean. Your dad, John, had gotten your mother pregnant and throughout the first four years of your life, he was very in and out of your life. He’d only show up at your house once a year, normally on your birthday. He’d call on holidays, but you were too young to hold a conversation. A little after your fourth birthday, your mother had passed away from cancer. You had nothing and no one else, and your dad John came to your rescue.

“Hey, kiddo.” John had told you, picking you up from the hospital. He looked tired, the bags underneath his eyes more prominent than you had ever seen them.

“Hi.” You say quietly. You didn’t really know what was going on. All you knew was that your mommy was in a better place and you were going to live with your dad. You remember being nervous, because to you, your dad was like a stranger. You knew nothing about him.

“Do you have your stuff? You’re comin’ to stay with me and your brother, Dean. Dean’s excited to meet you, you know.”

Falcon Punch, monk style

(Background:  The DM for this wanted us to bring our best Pathfinder characters for this campaign.  The party consisted of a kitsune fighter, an orc unchained rogue, a kobold celestial-bloodline sorcerer, a tiefling life-mystery oracle, and my half-elf monk.  After fighting our way up out of a dungeon we’d been trapped in — and pretty well depleting our resources in the process — the DM wants his wizard character, the recurring villain of the campaign, to mock us before we actually escape.  He does so from the other side of a fifty-foot-wide chasm with no visible bottom.)

Villain:  [Standard hammy villain monologue with over-the-top gloating and taunting]

Kitsune:  [Orc], will you shoot him to at least get him to shut up?

Orc:  Can’t.  Out of ammo.

Kobold:  Hey, don’t look at me, guys, all I’ve got left are cantrips.

Tiefling:  I can barely even see the other side.

Kitsune:  Grr.  I don’t wanna have to listen to this guy.  Does anyone have a ranged attack that can at least get his attention?

Me:  Not exactly, but…  How wide is that chasm, again?

Tiefling:  *Snickers, knowing my monk from another campaign.*  Uh-oh…

DM: Uh, fifty feet.

Me:  Okay, I spend my last point of ki for the bonus to jump and leap across.  This should be a surprise round, right?

DM:  (after nearly choking on drink) Um.  Okay, yeah, DC 50; I hope you have another character ready.  Roll acrobatics.

Me:  Don’t need to, the lowest I can roll is a 66 after the point of ki.

DM:  (almost spittakes, with the rest of the party either snickering or stunned to silence) Seriously!?

Me:  *Presents character sheet.*

DM:  *Takes a few minutes to verify the ludicrous number of bonuses.*  …Oh goddammit.  Yeah, I guess this is happening, roll to attack.

Me:  Stunning Fist, get ready for his fort save.  *Rolls 17 on the die.*  Uh…

DM:  (before I can math up bonuses) I hate you.  *Rolls a 4 on the fort save.*  So.  Much.  So yeah, he’s in mid-monologue and you launch yourself across a goddamn bottomless chasm and punch the squishy wizard in the face.  Roll damage.

Party:  *Laughing hysterically!*

Tiefling:  Falcon Puuunch!

(Cue the entire table, including the poor DM, completely losing it for the next few minutes.  I proceeded to flurry of blows the Big Bad’s right hand man into an unrecognizable pulp over the next two rounds while the party cheered me on.  I looted the body, threw him into the chasm, and then could just “take 10” to jump back across.  It was my only session in that campaign, unfortunately, but I’m told it took a few weeks for the DM to work out how to get around the damage I did to his plot.  I understand he now takes excessive precautions before letting his villains run off at the mouth, since a DC 50 acrobatics check is apparently not enough.  This isn’t the first campaign that particular monk has mangled the plot of, either, but it is the most spectacular instance, and the only time she almost wrecked a campaign during its first session.)

You know you’re fucked when you’re only 15 but yet it feels like the world could end right there and you would be fine with it. It’s fucked when girls and boys are so young but so depressed, so heartbroken. Feelings fuck you up, i remember when i was only a little girl and i had this whole life ahead of me and all I wanted was a boyfriend. And now after having one, I don’t understand why I needed one, it’s messed me up. Emotionally and physically, I am fucked.

He was the type of boy you could just see yourself lasting forever with, and that’s exactly what I did. He teased me so much that I used to sook about it, but that didn’t matter because at least he was making me smile in some way. He cared so deeply, and he was so sensitive even though everyone I knew saw him as this big tough guy. He was gentle, he was romantic, it was like we were 23 and just madly in love. Our relationship was beyond what you would expect at such a young age, but we were just so maturely in love. But that’s the thing, i’m not 23, i’m so young and now i’m heartbroken and it’s not as simple as going out every night to get him out of my head. I have to sleep early because of school, i have to go to school, I have to study and commit to all of my commitments and it’s impossible to get him out of my mind. He wasn’t just my boyfriend, he was genuinely my best friend and sometimes we fought as best friends would. But no matter how we were fighting, we fought as hard as we could for each other because that’s what love does to you. But one day i guess he just decided to stop fighting, and it wasn’t like I was expecting it. We always swore we would fight for each other, fight for the relationship, fight for our fucking love but he didn’t want too anymore. He didn’t want me anymore, and i can say with all my broken heart that killed me. It’s the worst thing to wake up happily in love and then go to bed broken because you’ve lost the reason why you even got up that day. He said he lost feelings, but I can’t place when. When did he lose feelings? With all of that sweet talk, the kisses, the texts, the calls, the hugs, everything and at some point he somehow started to lose feelings. And it hurt and surprised me so much because everyone knew that he was crazy about me. I saw parts of him that he would never dare to show anyone, we were so comfortable with each other and we allowed each other into our hearts but for some reason he just didn’t want that anymore. I can not place that all in my head, how you can suddenly lose interest in something you once loved. And it wasn’t like the hurt stopped there, no a month later he found himself with another girl. Making all the memories, the love, the jokes, that we were once doing. And the weirdest thing is, everyone around him can see that he doesn’t love her. Not the way he loved me at least. And i can’t seem to process the thought of why you would throw away a diamond for a fake one. Why would you throw away your perfect girl for someone who doesn’t even come close? Fuck, she’s not even pretty and yet i feel like i have to compete with her. And every month goes by, and they are still going strong and for some reason my brain still can’t process it. I still can’t believe that he’s moved on from me because love doesn’t just go away. You can’t just get rid of love because you don’t want it anymore, feelings don’t leave when you ask them too. So what is he doing with her when he can be with me? I’ve never been the girl to wait for someone, i always want to try with everyone but for some reason i am constantly drawn to him, as if he’s truly made for me and i think he is. I think he’s the love of my life and maybe i’m just not his. But when you love something you don’t just let it go, you fucking fight like crazy for it and i can promise everyone i would never go down without a fight. Okay maybe he’s happily in love with her, but what about me? What about my love for him? That doesn’t just go away, that doesn’t get excluded so fuck society and their expectations. Fuck everyone who thinks i won’t succeed. I know what I want, and i’ve never been so determined to get it.

a theory regarding today’s clip

so today’s clip was wonderful, all that i dreamed of: finally a clip of relief and support between the girls. but it also left me wondering how the hell we got from yesterday’s clip in which the girls mentioned..

to today’s clip.. in which the girls mentioned..

that seems a big change overnight. i’ve seen some theories flying by and one ask received by @tarjeiandhenrik left me thinking: how did this go? bc i personally don’t think what chris told sana yesterday was a lie to make the surprise all that bigger.. it seems a bit.. unnecessarily harsh. and how would the girls suddenly know that the pm girls were fucking with sana in the first place?

well, let me tell you who did know what happened between sana and the pm girls. 

this guy. isak is the only one who knew about what made sana make the saranors account. i remember this past monday, in which sana told chris about the account, that we were all terribly frustrated with the fact that chris didn’t ask why sana made the account. and i could understand why chris would be the person to be asked bc she’s kind of the person to avoid confrontations a lot. i think it was a deliberate choice to have sana ask her, but not be asked why. because this is also strengthened by sana’s post on the flawless 99 facebook in which she says:

“ There’s not point in explaining why I did it, because it doesn’t justify anything “

she specifically mentions not wanting to explain her deal! so i don’t think sana told chris anymore between that post and the clip we got yesterday. now, that mention of “they don’t like you as much anymore”: way too cruel to not be true in the end.. to be just a diversion to surprise her even more today. my guess is that after that phonecall with chris, isak somehow got in touch with the girls and told them about sara. at that point, isak probably already knew that sana had come clean about the whole thing. maybe he’d been talking with eva already? who knows. bc here’s the thing: isak knows that sana feels that she doesn’t have anyone anymore. she told him last friday. and his response?

the clip also ended on isak’s face as opposed to sana’s face, which often indicates (to me at least) that the person who is last seen is up to something that the protagonist might not see yet. it also happened with the “du er alene” exchange, which made isak realise that there was something wrong with sana and he reached out. 

this also makes sense, if we remember who reached out today to sana:

isak once again. he knows that the girls haven’t been talking (but he might have thought they would have already since he talked to them? it could be he’s checking if they reached out already). what is most significant about this exchange: “jeg backer deg. 4real” i have your back, like 4 real. it’s a nice enough message, but i think this was done on purpose: isak really did have her back bc he told the girls sara was scheming to push her out. as a result: the girls know the pm girls were fucking with sana. 

and that was my theory, haha. i might be totally wrong here, or maybe it’ll never get explained. but in that case i’ll just run with this theory. who knows, maybe isak will tell sana on friday about it? i’m assuming eva might invite the boy squad for a nice convergence of the Ultimate Boy + Girl squad (and maybe the balloon squad as well??) Let’s wait and see!

Meeting you was a complete coincidence as you happened to work in the warehouses where his gang would make deals. You were always told finish up before 9 o’clock in the evening because you might lose your job otherwise and you always obeyed this rule until that day. It took you longer to sort things out than usual and when you were about to leave it was almost 10. You went out through the front exit and were caught up in the middle of two gangs.

“Who the fuck is she?” one man asked.

“I’m sorry, I didn’t see anything, I’m not even supposed to be here, I will never tell anyone, so please-”

“Shut up! You talk to much.” Jaebum ordered. You looked at him frightened.

“It would be better if we just kill her.” the other man spoke again.

“No.” Jaebum said approaching you. He wrapped his arm around your shoulder. “She’s with me.”

  • Because of people like him, he doesn’t go anywhere (not even to sleep) without his trusted revolver
  • He’s one of the richest among the gang members and likes to show off his precious cars but there will be no hesitation to kill if you as much as touch them

You made the stupid decision of trying to steal from him. You saw his obviously expensive car parked outside one of the clubs and thought that that’s a good catch. However when you drove away with it, expecting to sell it into the black market, Mark himself showed up to buy it from you.

“That’s not very nice.” he said pointing his gun at you. “I really like this one.”

You were surprised the owner of the car found you so fast and just wanted in anticipation to see what will happen.

“But I also find your courage and skills very impressive, not many people dare steal from me, so how about you give me back my car and then I will think what to do with you.”

  • He doesn’t have a specific job at the gang as he’s pretty much good at anything
  • And he also annoys a lot people so they don’t want to take him with them but he shows up anywhere, anytime at the right moment

He met you when he broke into your house in the middle of the night to interrogate you. He woke you up and put his hand over your mouth to stop you from screaming.

“We need to discuss some things, if you behave I won’t hurt you.”

Pretending to fear for your life you just nodded but if he really thought you were afraid, that was a big mistake on his part. You knew this was going to happen someday sooner or later, so you were ready and as soon as he let go of you, you took the scissors from your night stand and stabbed him in the leg. You took off immediately after that and you have no idea how (with that kind of injury) but he managed to catch up and tackle you outside. He dragged you to the back of your apartment building and slammed you into the wall.

“Naughty girl, what did I just say about behaving? I really don’t want to hurt you but if you don’t tell me everything you know right now, I might have to take you with me.”

  • Most of the time he’s very collected and calm until you make him angry or his emotions take over, then he uses anything he can find as a weapon and not a single person leaves the room alive
  • He has been in the business for so long that he already forgot the number of people he killed

Unfortunately it was your mission to kill him, as you were probably the only person crazy enough to try it. He noticed you even before you approached him but didn’t say anything yet. This situation was very amusing to him as there has been a long time since somebody tried to kill him. You were waiting all night to get the right opportunity when you lost track of him. You were about to go look for him when he appeared next to you.

“Looking for someone?” he asked handing you a drink. “Why do you look so shocked? Did you see a ghost or am I that sexy?”

You were still frozen in your tracks when he got closer and closer to you only to pull your gun from under your dress.

“What were you about to do with this?” he smirked pushing you down on the couch. “I think you should sit down because me and you are about to have a very serious talk.”

  • Even though he’s well known in the industry not many people know his real name
  • He’s also the best at smuggling anything in and out of the country
  • If the money is given to him in cash, he counts every single note as he doesn’t trust people that easily

You tried to cheat your way out of the deal by not giving him a couple of grands, thinking he wouldn’t notice but as you turned around to leave he grabbed you by the arm. 

“No so fast sweetie.” he said. “Do you know what this is?” he asked you and you could feel the coldness of the metal press at your waist.

“It’s a gun.”

“Correct! And I would really hate to use it on you.” he stated snatching your bag out of your hand.

“I will take this.” he smiled taking out a bundle of banknotes out of it. “But as you tried to trick me, I  can’t let you go that easily, so I think I will need something more than that.”

  • Has many different methods to get the info he needs, the most infamous one of them being torture
  • Needless to say if he gets to use that method, you won’t be experiencing anything again. Ever.

You had no idea how it got to that. Seemingly one minute you were fighting alongside your members and now you were strapped to a chair in an unknown building. Someone pulled you up by the chin.

“I told you to look at me when I’m talking to you.” BamBam said. “Ahh such a pretty face!”

“Don’t touch me!” you told trying to smack his hand from your face.

“I think you don’t understand the situation you’re now in. You see, you don’t have many options. Or rather there is only two: you tell me everything you know and I kill you quickly or I torture the information out of you and kill you anyways.”

“How about neither, you fuck.”

“Ouch! You’re just making it worse for yourself but I admire your courage, how about, just for you, I come up with a third option.”

  • Favourite weapons of choice - long range sniper rifles
  • Often trains other even older than him gang members and can often be seen practicing till dusk

He was surprised to see he missed and only shot you in the leg. As you disappeared behind a building he decided to come finish you off. When he turned the corner you were nowhere to be seen.

“What the heck, she couldn’t have gone that far off, at this point she should have lost a lot of blood.” he wondered when unexpectedly you attacked him from behind. You took your knife out trying to stab him when he rolled you over and now he was the one on top.

“Oh! I see we have a fighter. How were you even able to stand up?” he questioned you. 

“Stop struggling, will you?” he told you pressing his fingers into the open leg wound. You screamed in pain and passed out. He checked your pulse.

“Good. She’s still alive. If we can get her to behave, she will make a strong ally.” he thought picking you up.

Sangwoo in Chapter 31 (Analysis)

So, there was a lot going on this chapter, wasn’t there? Between the non-stabbing, the consequential continuation of the fight, Sangwoo being arrested, Bum being dragged along with him, and Sangwoo putting Seungbae on the spot, it was a rollercoaster of a chapter. 

We all know (I hope) that Sangwoo is very intelligent. We also know that (to some extent) he cares for Bum. Which makes me hesitant to say exactly whether Sangwoo is using his heart or his brain this chapter (ignore the cliche).

After Sangwoo has been ‘brought down’ by Seungbae, we get to see this jewel.  Now I’d argue that he’s genuinely thinking of Bum here with no ulterior motive. He looks so defeated. He’s just woken up from being tased. He’s thinking about what’s most important in that moment- Bum. Exactly what he’s thinking is more obscure. Is he disappointed in Bum, sad, angry, confused? We have one word and with it a million possibilities. 

Here’s my take on it. Not to sound too, well, romantic, but Sangwoo’s face here looks so broken. I look at him here, and I see a man who thinks he’s lost everything (or is about to) and is desperately clinging to one thing above all else. His eyebrows are raised towards his nose, slanting down towards his ears. This could just be due to the angle we’re looking at him from, but it could also be indicative of pain. Of course, he was just tased so that could have something to do with it, but I think the pain he’s feeling the most at this moment is emotional. He looks so done. 

Cut to the station:

This is the intelligent ‘can think his way out of anything’ Sangwoo at work here. Look at him. He’s watching. Gathering information, and assessing the situation. If he ever needed his smarts, it’s now. And this is where things get complicated, in my opinion. Sangwoo is trying to find a way out of an impossible situation. And then Bum arrives. 

And Sangwoo freaks out. 

He gets angry. He starts yelling. He moves with speed. He reacts in such a way that everyone literally freezes.

Look carefully at Seungbae’s face here because I’ll come back to it in a second. But first, Sangwoo doesn’t stop just because everyone else does. He uses Bum to his advantage. This is where I start to find things interesting. Sangwoo is too smart to not know what he is doing here. By showing he cares for his ‘victim’ he is blowing huge holes in Seungbae’s theory. And Sangwoo knows this. I mean look:

‘What happened to your face, Bum?’ As if he doesn’t already know. Sangwoo is looking at Bum and seeing an opportunity to get off scot-free. It is obvious that that is what he is doing. (Quick side-note because Bum’s face kills me here). But is that the ONLY reason he’s doing it? Is this Sangwoo freaking out, but intelligently? Is he showing genuine concern for Bum here, or just using him? Is he trying to save himself, or save them both? What is he feeling for Bum at this moment, considering everything that’s happened beforehand? The answers to these questions are a huge indication of Sangwoo’s motives, but sadly, I don’t know what they are. 

I mean, on the one hand, he’s making Seungbae’s theory look more and more ridiculous with every passing moment (and doesn’t Seungbae just know it):

Look at his face here. He is so out of his depth. Sangwoo has completely outsmarted him, and his mind is reeling. Why? Because Sangwoo has used emotions to his advantage. In Seungbae’s mind, Sangwoo is this psycho, emotionless, ‘evil’ man. He doesn’t care about anyone but himself. Bum is his victim and nothing else. Yet, here is a man who seems to care about Bum to the point of desperation. It’s a clever ploy, one that even shocks Seungbae. He looks so surprised to see that Sangwoo might care about someone. That he might actually have emotions. He’s stunned into silence, and every second he stays that way is a second more that Sangwoo can use to his advantage. Seungbae seems to have made a rookie mistake. Prior to this point, I’m pretty sure he’s only thought so far as getting Sangwoo to the station, and figured if he could do that he’d ‘win’. He doesn’t seem to realize that the fight between them didn’t end with Sangwoo’s arrest. And, boy that’s not going to end well for him.

On the other hand, we get this Sangwoo:

Look at his face in the second panel. I know that ‘reading Sangwoo’ is an art-form that no one’s mastered, but I’m going to go out on a limb here and say this is genuine emotion in his face. So, is Sangwoo using his brain, his heart or some unholy alliance of the two? I would argue for the latter. He’s emotional, but he’s not stupid. He’s using his genuine feelings and concern for Bum, amping them up, and using them to fool everyone. As far as I can remember, Sangwoo hasn’t done that before. He’s been either cold and calculating, or emotional to an unhealthy degree. We know he’s good at faking earnestness, which is what makes me uncertain about this whole outburst.

I mean, once Bum is next to him, he reverts back to calculating Sangwoo:

Look at that scheming face

And then he goes for the final blow:

Oh, KO, Suengbae! You are outta here! This is seriously the most brilliant plan Sangwoo could have come up with. Not only has he completely discredited Seungbae’s theory, but he’s distracted the rest of the police from it, too. In fact, he’s put his own involvement in the CEO’s daughter’s murder (that’s a mouthful) so far out of everyone’s mind, he doesn’t even register. He cares, he’s polite, he apologises, he bows. No way he can be a murderer, right? Ignore the fact that he came at ‘Bum’s ex’ with a knife. Everyone does that when confronted with their SO’s ex, right?

I’ve included this panel because I have a sneaky suspicion that Sangwoo’s face is showing some evidence of this victory on it. I mean, he knows he’s all but ‘proved’ himself innocent, and condemned Seungbae. Now Bum isn’t smart enough to figure all this out, which probably explains how confused he looks. But I think Sangwoo may be hiding a smile here. 

I mean think about it. The police questioning Sangwoo is one thing, but Bum would’ve gotten them both arrested the second he was alone in an interrogation room. Lies are not that boy’s strong point. 

So, maybe you’re wondering what the point of all this was? Did I really say anything that somebody hasn’t already? Probably not, but I’m curious. I’m curious as to how people interpreted this scene. Do you think it was all a ploy? Do you think Sangwoo was genuinely overly-emotional? Or do you think he was emotional, but using those to his advantage? Or something completely different? Personally, I think Sangwoo was feeling pretty raw this chapter (and the last). I think he was genuinely something for Bum this chapter, I just can’t figure out what. Is he concerned? Is he angry that someone’s touching his Bum? Scared, jealous, something else? I really can’t tell. All I can say is that I think he was emotional, even if I can’t figure out what emotion that is. I think he used that emotion to his advantage, and used Bum as a get-out-of-jail-free card to keep them both out of the reach of the police. Whether he cares about Bum in this moment or not is another question, but he certainly wanted the police to never doubt that. 

So, the tl;dr of this long, rambly post is, I think the side of Sangwoo we see here was his calculating one. I think the outburst in the station was somewhat emotional, but was mainly a ploy on Sangwoo’s part. I’d say he was 8/10ths intelligence and 2/10ths emotion at the station. I think the emotion was genuine, but not. I can’t explain it. It’s almost as if Sangwoo is saying what he genuinely thinks he feels, covering up what he actually feels with semi-real concern. So he is concerned about Bum, but it’s a different concern to what he’s showing? He’s concerned he’ll lose him, but not concerned about him being hurt? Sangwoo, you are near impossible to figure out. 

Let me tell you what it’s been like being asexual.

When you’re twelve or so, and in a classroom full of tittering preteens, you finally get an explanation of what this ‘sex’ stuff actually is.  At last, the elusive knowledge of where babies come from!  But that’s also when you start to think about your sexual future.  Will you do this sex stuff one day?  It sounded like you wouldn’t have a choice—it was presented as something that everyone does.

Since your classroom happens to be in a building attached to a Church, you only learn about heterosexual sex that day, and the only real teaching apart from what it is is that you aren’t supposed to do it until you’re married.

Okay, you think, because you are twelve, and you ardently do not care.

-

When you’re thirteen or so, and at a sleepover, a girl tells a joke.  “What do you call a girl who doesn’t masturbate?”

“I don’t know.”

“A liar.”

And the people around you laugh, but you don’t, because now you wonder what it is that you missed.  You didn’t get the joke.

-

When you’re fourteen or so, and among friends, a boy talks about what he did in the restroom with a girl.  You listen because you’re a little curious.  But others are awed.

You disapprove, because you’re in eighth grade for crying out loud, why would you do something so stupidly risky?  Was it really so fun to be worth it?

You tell yourself that they’re just stupid, but then you wonder why your friends seem so fascinated by this boy’s vaguely uncomfortable descriptions.

-

When you’re fifteen or so, you start high school, and the social signs are telling you the time has arrived to join the dating scene.  You’ve got better things to do, but when a boy surprises you with a clumsy but well-intended text asking you out, you give it consideration.  You don’t really know this kid, but you’re curious about dating and don’t want to be that forever alone person.  You accept.

You don’t hate dating, but it doesn’t really do much for you.  After a little while, you’ve more or less forgotten that there’s someone you call your boyfriend.  When someone makes a passing remark about your presumed sexual relations, you are shocked by the wave of revulsion that smacks into you at the very suggestion.  Never in a million years, you think vehemently, and then you marvel at how you managed to ‘date’ the same person for four months without the thought of sex with them ever crossing your mind.

He tries to kiss you.  You don’t want to.  You know this isn’t going to work out.  You break it off.

You feel relieved and liberated.

-

When you’re sixteen or so, you’re happily single.  You love your friends dearly, your best friend most of all.  You love her far more than you ever…well, you never really loved your ex.  You wonder if you might be gay for her, but you don’t want to kiss her or anything, just squish her in a big hug on a daily basis to let her know you love her and put a smile on her face.

You have a fleeting crush on a boy.  You get over it, thankful it never amounted to anything, because what were you thinking ew!  Then you have another one, similar but different, and thank goodness that never happened either because it would have been so awkward.  You start to wonder if you’re just not cut out for dating, or maybe you’re gay.  You don’t know how to feel about that.  It’d be so much simpler and easier if you were just normal.

-

When you’re seventeen or so, you make a new friend, a really pleasant guy.  You are just friends, and that is perfect.  It lasts about five months, and then one of your friends pulls him aside and hints heavily that he ought to ask you out.

He does.  You have no compunctions about saying yes, because you like him a lot, and he’s taking you to see the new Hobbit movie even though he’s not a fan and he had to watch twelve hours of movies in preparation for this date so that he’d be able to understand your interest.

You have a great time, and so does he.

About a month later, he kisses you.  It was your first kiss, exciting for the seventeen years of buildup and pleasant for having happened on acceptable terms with a more-than-acceptable person.

In the following months, neither of you brings up the topic of sex.  After all, you’re both to be found in the pews on Sunday mornings.  That’s fine by you.  More than fine, actually.  The idea of sex frightens you, which you attribute to your inexperience.  You would only ever consider attempting it with someone you really trusted, on level with a spouse.

-

When you’re eighteen or so, and at a sleepover, a girl cuddles casually with you as you talk in the hushed tones reserved for the hours after midnight.  She laments the lack of available girls at your school.

You mention that you would date a girl.  You instantly have everyone’s attention.

“Is there something you want to tell us?” your cuddle-buddy asks.

You say again that you’d date a girl.  Not now, of course, because you have a boyfriend, but yeah, you’d have no problem with it.  You probably wouldn’t sleep with a girl, but then you really don’t like the idea of sleeping with a boy either.  So you don’t really care about the configuration of genitals you don’t intend to see.  You just want the company of some lovely dork who will marathon Lord of the Rings with you and frequent the city’s best ice cream parlors.

Because your cuddle-buddy is a member of the queer community, she’s much more informed about sexualities and designations and spectrums than you are.  She suggests “panromantic asexual” and you understand both of those terms.  You’d seen them before, but never really thought you qualified.  Hearing her say it makes it somehow more concrete.

You accept that you are panromantic asexual.  You feel so light now that a couple of your closest friends know and accept you as you are.

You tell your mom a little while later on a whim.  You regret it because she doesn’t even bother listening to you and doesn’t respect your trust.  You hear her the next day telling your sister about how you said you might be a lesbian, and you’re so frustrated with her you want to hit something.

You decide not to tell anyone else.  Your dad is pretty homophobic—actually, that’d be most of the adults in your family—and you have no idea how your boyfriend would take it.  Your peers might not be welcoming or understanding—you just don’t know.  You realize that you are sort of in a closet.

You start a blog on Tumblr and blog about your problems #ace #asexual #lgbtqa

You spend way too much time on the internet, looking for the magical solution for coming out to the rest of your loved ones.  But since you don’t actually have any intention of coming out in the near future, you know you’re wasting your time.

Somehow your disinterest in sex has moved to occupy the forefront of your mind, not because it requires lots of attention in order to comprehend, but because it makes you different, and that is distracting.

One day, while you’re reading fanfiction, you come across an explicitly asexual character, and you realize that this is a first.  You cannot think of a single time in your entire life up to this point when you had seen an explicitly asexual character, and that surprises you.  Then it bothers you.  Maybe you could have avoided a couple years of uncertainty and anxiety if you had been able to identify in yourself the familiar characteristics of another asexual.

You realize you don’t know anyone else in your life who’s asexual.

That’s a sobering, isolating realization.

-

When you’re nineteen or so, you presumably go to college.  You start trying to navigate life with some semblance of independence.  You probably feel a little more secure in how you identify yourself.  You might even be all the way out of the closet.

Or at least that’s what eighteen-year-old you hopes.

The most interesting tidbit from Arwel at Sherlocked USA

So here’s something I thought was incredibly interesting. Maybe everyone knows this already, but I’m going to say it anyways.

I asked Arwel at the drinks reception if there was some set design or symbol he incorporated into Sherlock that he thought no one had caught or cared about enough.

He gave a delightful answer.

He talked about how he repeatedly used the concept “Information is Power” in His Last Vow because it is exactly Magnussen’s threat. I nodded and mentioned that lovely billboard in HLV. He went even farther to say he’s created his own design to better illustrate the idea. He put the letter “i” and encircled it, like a power button. He said that symbol directly emphasizes “information is power”, like Magnussen and the core problem of HLV – but I quickly pointed out that I’ve seen that symbol in Sherlock, but NOT just in HLV. I told him I saw him put it in The Six Thatchers, too. He seemed surprised that I knew he used that symbol, and that I knew it was in S4.

So if anyone wants to take a look through S4 for more “i” power buttons, you might find some delicious meta there

Jason never took his eyes off of you during the gala. He knew tonight you were going to be the main attraction even though the gala was to raise money for the hospital that was bombed by the Joker.

He took a swig of his drink as he glared at a man eyeing you up, he was basically undressing you with his eyes and you didn’t even notice. The only man that’s allowed to look at you that way is Jason, and he would blow the brains out of anyone who gets in his way.

Jason chugged his drink and threw the glass over his shoulder not giving a damn where it landed. He straightened his tux and cleared his throat making his way towards the creep who wouldn’t take his eyes off you.

When he finally reached the scum, he swung his arm around his shoulders, surprising the idiot, “Listen here,” He said, voice low and dark as he pointed at you, “That girl you’ve been staring at tonight, screams my name every night,” He slapped the mans back hard enough for him to jerk forward, “So I would suggest you stare at those sluts over there, unless you want to stare at your own body after I fucking kill you, do we have an agreement?” Jason smirked when the creep nodded quickly, “Good.”

The man scurried away as blood rushed to his face. Jason laughed, grabbing another glass of liquor from a near by waiter and made his way to where you were standing.

You, Tim, Damian, and Dick were talking about a new mission this weekend.

“I’m driving this time.”

Tim rolled his eyes, “You’re like 4, Bruce didn’t let you last time, so he isn’t going to let you this time.”

You giggled, “Aww don’t worry Damian, we’ll let you drive one day.”

You felt someone tap your shoulder. You turned around, “Hey, what happened?” You asked, noticing how Jason seemed very irritated.

You gasped when he grabbed you by the waist and leaned down, “Let’s get outta here.” He growled into your ear.

You bit your lip, feeling something spread inside your lower abdomen. Right away you knew why he wanted to leave so you nodded and said bye to the boys for the night. Jason grabbed your wrist and pulled you away from the crowd. You tried to ask Jason what happened again but he ignored you.

Can i request RFA reaction when they recieve news that MC is dead or in danger but than she's actually alive and well

I’m sorry this took so long, nonnie! I had to rewrite it because I didn’t like how it turned out at first, whoops. hopefully this is what you had in mind? if not, make sure to let me know! warning: there are slight mentions of death, dead bodies, hospitals, kidnapping, accidents etc. nothing graphic, though, but read at your own discretion anyway!

- Admin Cat Mom.

Yoosung

  • sunshine boy goes apeshit crazy right after hanging up the phone.
  • who on earth would dare to hurt such a precious being like you?
  • whoever the responsible for this car accident that took your life is… they are in big trouble.
  • his brain is not responding properly anymore.
  • and he just plain refuses to live in a world where you no longer exist.
  • he could’ve easily succumbed to his tears, and trembling hands and legs.
  • but oh, no.
  • he’s going to take matters into his own hands.
  • so he pretty much grabs his coat and leaves the apartment as fast as lightning.
  • somehow he’s at the scene in less than fifteen minutes.
  • and you’re there, the police and paramedics are there, and your car is there too.
  • your car is wrecked.
  • but you’re standing right next to it safe and sound, and your legs, arms and head are all in the right places.
  • you seem a little distressed, that’s all.
  • after staring blankly at the scene, he runs up to you and holds you tightly, rubbing your back and kissing your cheek multiple times to prove himself that you’re there and you’re alive.
  • “what in the world happened oh my god MC.”
  • “jumin is a bad influence please stop hanging out with him.”

Zen

  • he’s going to punch someone.
  • he’s also going to punch himself.
  • it’s weird enough that you haven’t come home in the past few days, and he has tried to reach you plenty of times but you’re not answering your phone.
  • now that he’s heard about the dead body that’s been discovered near a river (which description matches you almost perfectly) he starts panicking.
  • and he wants to die too.
  • instead of going to the police to make sure it’s not you, he spends an entire night looking for you.
  • because the mere thought of seeing your lifeless body would destroy every inch of his soul.
  • yes, zen has a strong body and soul, but not when it comes to the idea of you not being by his side.
  • after checking every damn corner of the city, he goes home feeling defeated.
  • he has a lot of missed calls and texts from the rest of RFA.
  • does he care at this point? not really, he doesn’t feel like answering to anyone but his dear MC.
  • when he opens the door, he’s surprised to see you sitting comfortably on the couch and going through your phone.
  • “MC? Where… where have you been?”
  • “you silly! I told you I was going out of town this weekend to visit my family. I even left you a message! because I didn’t have any signal there.”
  • oh, so that’s why even mr. trust fund kid has been calling non stop.
  • you spend the next day cuddling, and kissing, and talking—he feels so relieved that you’re not dead.
  • from now on you’re not allowed to leave this wreck of a man alone for more than a day.

Jaehee

  • her heart sinks to her stomach as soon as she hears the news.
  • you are her guardian angel, she said it herself.
  • you cannot leave just yet.
  • a relative/acquaintance of yours had called her that morning to let her know that you’re in hospital and things aren’t looking too great.
  • after all, you’ve been sick the past days, that’s a fact, and you weren’t taking care of yourself.
  • she scolded you a lot, but she also did her best to make you feel better.
  • still, she thought it was just a cold that would go away eventually.
  • it turns out now that your life is at risk?
  • on her way to the hospital, all she can think of is you lying on a bed connected to a hundred wires.
  • but she tries really hard not to focus on worst-case scenarios, takes a deep breath, and drinks her entire cup of coffee in one sitting.
  • staying calm and thinking straight, that’s all she gotta do.
  • she already has a contingency plan anyways, and jumin is more than ready to help with anything you need (he cares about your health as well).
  • when she arrives at the hospital, she’s surprised to see you on the entrance blowing your nose and looking like a mess.
  • a regular, definitely not on the verge of death kind of mess.
  • “jaehee, what are you doing here?”
  • she sighs in relief and gives you a hug.
  • you then explain that your relative/acquaintance tends to blow things out of proportion, that you’re just a bit sick and that’s all.
  • “for the love of god, MC, please take care of yourself.”
  • and… you have your very own personal nurse now.

Jumin

  • this man turns into a mess.
  • he knew it, he knew that he should’ve taken you to the airport.
  • he only let you convince him to go alone because you told him you didn’t like goodbyes, and that everything was going to be just fine.
  • the report on the news says otherwise.
  • the plane you took a few hours ago has crashed.
  • he sits calmly on the couch and lets the information sink in, it takes a while.
  • an hour passes by, he should start making calls.
  • his rational side is telling to send help, helicopters, anything in order to save you and bring you back home safe.
  • his sense of revenge is telling him to sue the airline, find the culprit of this injustice, and make them pay.
  • but his body is not responding to his orders, he’s gone completely numb.
  • how could you, MC? how could you leave him like this? you are his source of happines and stability.
  • god… his clothes start feeling way too tight, he’s having trouble breathing.
  • and then, when he’s about to call assistant kang, his phone rings.
  • your name showed up on the  screen. “hello? jumin? I don’t know if you’ve heard about the plane crash—”
  • like a sweet lullaby, your voice soothes him instantly, so he clears his throat and manages to say only one thing: “MC, I am so glad you’re well.”
  • you had lost the flight and decided to wait for the next one as you didn’t want to bother jumin, but after hearing about the accident, you thought it was best to return home and postpone your trip.
  • he refuses to hang up the phone until he’s there because yes, he’s going to pick you up (feat. good ol’ driver kim).

Seven

  • he knew something like this would happen sooner or later.
  • just when he starts feeling like he can live a normal, happy life, someone decides to take you away from him.
  • with the amount of enemies he’s gained through his job as an agent, he should’ve know.
  • yet there he is, in shock, sweating, and feeling extremely nauseated.
  • he’s panicking so much he forgets for a moment that he’s a skilled hacker.
  • he doesn’t know what this person that took you wants because the message they left was too vague, but he’s going to find out one way or another.
  • even if it costs him his life.
  • the only problem is that he can’t seem to focus and he’s making mistakes left and right.
  • MC please be okay.
  • he keeps picturing you locked in a filthy basement, tied up, scared and alone.
  • that is until you finally showed up—you were buying groceries.
  • prepare yourself for a tacklehug.
  • wait, if you’re here and you’re well, what’s up with this weird message?
  • wrong number? a distasteful prank? 
  • he’s baffled and doesn’t understand what’s going on.
  • then decides to dig into it later and increase security, you can’t take threats like this lightly.
  • he’s a clingy mess for the rest of the day and does everything you ask him to, he even cleans the living room and eats a proper meal.

V

  • this sweet, selfless man just can’t catch a break.
  • it took him so long to heal his wounds and allow himself to love someone healthy and good for him.
  • a building has caught fire and collapsed, and not many people made it.
  • the same building you say you were going to.
  • he hasn’t heard anything from you yet, and you’re not answering your phone.
  • so he calls every person he knows and does everything he can to find the tiniest bit of information about the fire and the survivors.
  • his efforts are useless.
  • his chest is hurting so much? he doesn’t think he can take it?
  • all he can do is hold his head in his hands, bite his lip and quietly swallow his tears, because he knows how much you hate to see him sad.
  • and as expected, he blames himself for it.
  • it should have been him.
  • you didn’t deserve such a horrible death, let alone such a short life.
  • after all, you brought so much joy into his life.
  • when it seems like he’s lost all hope, the door opens.
  • it’s MC!
  • you swear you’ve never seen him smile so brightly, like he’s witnessing a miracle of some sort.
  • he asks you where you were and you explain that your job interview was cancelled, so you weren’t there when the building caught fire.
  • he holds you so tightly he leaves you gasping for air, but you don’t complain and instead comfort him with tender kisses.
forever starts right now.

For Patater Week. Set in Careful the Tale You Tell verse.

It’s about two months into their relationship. (Their proper relationship, not the year of fumbling that led them there.) Kent’s bugging Alexei about his stuff taking up too much room in Kent’s dresser drawers. “Can’t we, like, pick a drawer that’s yours and you can have that one, so your shit isn’t all messed up with mine?”

“You’re wanting to share drawers?” Alexei says, merrily putting a pair of pants in right next to Kent’s pants, god damn it.

“At least can we fucking talk about it?”

“Pff. No, too early. We talk about it when we get married,” Alexei says breezily.

Kent nearly trips face first over his own dropped jaw.

And from then on, it turns into a thing.

Crazy Naomi and Junchiro theory

Okay, so I just thought of something involving Junichiro and Naomi. What we’re told is that Junichiro has the ability ‘light snow’, and Naomi doesn’t have one at all. Well the latest few chapters got me thinking of how abilities work. We recently learned that Elise herself is Moris ability. She has powers and apparently is configured by Mori. Therefore she does whatever he says. Then there’s Junichiro and Naomi, who’s relationship looking back on it, is very similar to Elise and Mori.

Junichiro is super powerful being able to take on Hirotsu, Gin, and Tachichara all at once. He stands out so much that even both Hirotsu and Mori took note of this. Everything he is shown to be able to do is far above most other ability users. And yet he never uses it to its full potential

So where am i going with this? To put it simply, Junichiro himself may be Naomis ability. It seems odd, but there are a surprising number of things supporting the idea. For instance, they claim to be siblings, but just a glance at them is enough to see how they may not be as closely related as they act. Even characters in the show point this out.

Like Mori with Elise, Junichiro does everything, and I mean EVERYTHING for Naomi. He cooks for her,  he protects her, kills anyone if it means keeping her safe, and their ahem… *cough*relationship*cough* No matter how you look at it, Junichiro has an undying loyalty to Naomi alone, and she knows this. He compares his love for Naomi to those who worship god. He would gladly watch the world burn if it’s for her(actual quote he says).

Going back to Naomi’s physical appearance, she actually has more of a resemblance to two other characters in the show than he does with Junichiro… Gin and Akutagawa.

SIBLINGS MAYBE!??

Most likely not, but it’s definitely not impossible. I wrote it off in my mind as a coincidence with the black hair/gray eye/pale skin combo. But it actually has some credibility. Gin and Naomi even are shown together in the BSD artbook! I can’t read japanese, so I don’t know if there is any meaning to it(maybe there is). But these two are completely random characters to appear together like this.

There was actually a backstory written for Akutagawa that was written in volume 6 called ‘A Heartless Dog’. It’s about Akutagawa taking care of Gin and 8 other orphans who were all killed by the mafia, where Gin and Akutagawa being the only survivors. So how would Naomi fit into this? She could have been one of the orphans, or maybe even Akutagawa and Gins youngest sibling. She could have awakened her ability and saved herself, thus creating junichiro. We know Gin/Akutagawa absolutely despise their past and Naomi/Junichiros past is a complete mystery. So there might actually be some connection there…

Most people already know this, but Naomi’s character is actually based off the main character of the book ‘A Fool’s Love’ which was written by real life Junichiro Tanizaki. So what if the manga is going with a reverse route where this time Junichiro is the fictional character created by Naomi. This wouldn’t be the first time bungou stray dogs does this as something Similar happened with Akutagawa and Dazai. With the real life counterparts, Akutagawa was Dazai’s idol!

I don’t have a clue whether it’s true or not, but I thought it was too interesting not to share.

“Show me your wrist” for the four word prompt requested by @scorpiosyasss

Hunk prided himself in being an observant person.

He’d always been the one to see the oddity of the situation, like focusing on a needle instead of the rest of the haystack. After all, he’d been the one who figured out about the Fraunhofer line that led them to the Blue Lion, and knew how to find his Lion through a quick scan through the old tech he was shown and the one to realize Rolo and his crew were plotting against them (Hunk hadn’t yet forgiven them, oh no - he knew how to hold his grudges).

Needless to say, observations were Hunk’s kind of thing, especially if it meant experimenting with tests and recording interesting results, which was why when he caught a flash of blue on Keith’s wrist, he reached out without thinking and grabbed Keith by the shoulder.

Keith tensed up, whirling back at Hunk with a guarded expression. Realizing it was just Hunk, he exhaled slowly, giving Hunk a loop sided smile. “Hey big guy, what gives?”

Hunk paused, now wondering if it had been a good idea. Sure, Hunk was really curious what the thing on Keith’s hand was, but he wasn’t sure if he’d even seen it properly. “Uhm. Nothing.” He raised his hands, giving a sheepish smile. “Just wanted to, ya know, greet you and stuff. Like a good ol’ pal. ‘Sup.”

Keith squinted at Hunk, crossing his arms, very obviously unimpressed by the blatant lie - did Hunk mention he was bad at lying? Because he was. Very. “Hunk,” Keith said sternly. “What did you want to say.”

His voice sounded patronizing, and dangerously close like Shiro. Hunk snorted internally at the mental image of Keith wearing a #1 Dad shirt. He backed away, giving his too-awkward smile. “Nothing, I swear.”

“I don’t know if I can trust anymore especially after that one incident–”

Hunk tensed, eyes widening up in surprised when he realized what Keith was doing. “Oh no you don’t–”

Keith deliberately raised his voice, an eyebrow raised. “–where you accidentally wrecked Coran’s–”

“Okay! Okay you made your point now please,” Hunk clamped Keith’s mouth shut, which was easy since his hands were big, “Just stop before anyone hears.”

Keith continued staring at him with a sharp calculating gaze, and Hunk suddenly felt that maybe he was gonna be intruding someone’s privacy, again, without even meaning to. He sighed, grumbling, “show me your wrist.”

Keith blinked, holding his hand to his chest. “Uhm, what?”

“Your wrist, man!” Hunk pouted at Keith. “I don’t know if I saw wrong but I saw a glimpse of blue on your wrist? And I’m not like used to seeing that color on you to say the least so like, show me your wrist to prove that I didn’t see anything and so we can not talk about the incident that you were about to talk about that certainly did not happen?”

Keith blinked at him more, frozen in place. He broke from his trance, cheeks suddenly flushed, and he stared down at his wrist. “Oh. Uh.” He pursed his lips, muttering, “I guess I could show you.”

Before Hunk could ask what, Keith had started to take off his finger less glove, extending his fingers and clenching his fist to movements joints or something. Hesitantly, he held out his arm, showing Hunk what was on his wrist.

Hunk reached out, touching at the cool colored skin, jaws slack. “This is–”

“Lance drew it,” Keith cut in, and Hunk thought, ah. “We were, ah, talking, in the hangar, and he started talking about his family, and he mentioned that he used to do face painting with his niece and nephew, so I asked if he could show me and–” He paused, looking down at the minuscule drawing of a dolphin on his hands. “Well, I actually asked for a cat, but he said he only knew how to color marine life, so yea.”

Keith glanced down, faint smile on his lips despite the obvious blush on his face. At the sight of that, something clicked in Hunk’s mind, and he grinned, leaning down to whisper a small, “go get ‘im,” before running to his best friend’s room excitedly, leaving a flustered Keith alone in the corridor.

Hunk was observant, alright. But even the most oblivious person could see what was going on. And he was going to find the root of this.

He slammed into Lance’s room, catching Lance sewing straying seams on Keith’s jacket. Lance looked up, eyes wide at the sight of his best friend. “Hunk? What are you–” He followed Hunk’s gaze down onto the jacket, and blanched. “I swear this is not what you think it is–”

Hunk was going to love the result of this.

my main problem with romance is that my ideal romantic hero appears to be rather different than the majority of romance writers’ ideal romantic heroes. please keep your rogues, rakes, and alpha males away from me please!! no yelling or demanding or surprise kissing or “wild uncontrollable emotions” thanks!! 

I like my heroes to be pretty calm and decent and respectable and maybe even a little uptight and then just get absolutely wrecked by how much they love the heroine. ideal adjectives include “reassuring” “safe” “respectful” “kind” “gentle” “polite” etc. 

I am a gentle soul and “”alpha males”” are very spooky scary!! I would very much like my heroes to be AT LEAST polite and respectful, even if they’re very intimidating in other aspects. 

Does anyone have any recs? Bonus points for slow burn/pining

BTS Reaction | having your first big fight with them

Kim Seokjin 

“I really hate arguing with someone, that I actually love, do you know that?” He said while looking into your eyes. You sat down on the couch a few meters away from him. “Of course I know.” He went a few steppes forward, “And you also know how much I love and need you?” You nodded in response. Jin sat down besides you and laid his hand on your leg, gently stroking with his thumb. “Let’s forget about. I don’t want to see you sad ever again.”


Min Yoongi

You wanted to leave but he held onto your wrist to stop you. “Please don’t let this turn into something it’s not“, He begged. “I’m sorry, I just need some time off now.” He released his grip and let go of you. You just throw over your jacket and slipped into your sneakers and went outside to the park to get your mind free. Is was your first big argument with Yoongi and you felt terrible. You didn’t want to be any more minute away from him so you decided to turn back but he wasn’t at the apartment anymore, but he left a note. “Meet me at the Studio”. Of course he would drown himself in work if he’s sad, that was always his way. So you went to his Studio, knocking at the door and then entered. It was already pretty late at night and he looked exhausted. He turned his chair around to face you and reached for your hand. “I’m sorry for what I said. You know that I love you more than anyone else could.“ He said while gently stroking over the back of your hand. “I know I don’t want to fight either.”


Kim Namjoon

“It’s nonsense. We should stop.” He said finally after a while of silence. You two fought for the pretty much the last hour and at this point didn’t even know why you started his argument in the first place. You sat side by side on the couch but not facing each other. You nervously scratched your hand. “The thought of breaking up with you scares me, Namjoon.” He turned around surprised by your sudden confession. “Don’t say something like that, we won’t break up because of some silly fight like that.” He tried to comfort you and pulled you into a hug. You cuddled yourself into his shoulder and rested your head on his chest, listening to his heartbeat. He whispered into your ear: “Don’t ever think of that again, can you promise me that, baby?”


Jung Hoseok

“We have got through so much worse than this before. What’s so different this time that you can’t ignore it?” You asked him with a shaking voice. He quickly looked away, incapable of looking into your eyes. “Just say something, Hobi. You can’t just let this stay like that, without saying anything.” You demanded. He took a deep breath and rubbed his neck. “Maybe I should let you some time alone, that you can think about it.” You wanted to leave but he wrapped his arms around your waist from behind and pulled you close to him. “No don’t go. I’m sorry. Please don’t leave”, he whispered and you could feel his hands tremble slightly. Was he so afraid that you might leave him? You turned around and put his head between your hands. “I’m not going anywhere, I promise.”


Park Jimin

You got shocked over his aggressive tone. You’ve never seen him like that before and it scared you. Tears started rolling down your cheeks so you covered your face with your hands. Jimin stood with his back towards you and turned around as he noticed. “Oh no, honey don’t cry. I’m sorry, It wasn’t my intention to get that loud. I’m so sorry.” He hugged you tightly and stroked the back of your head to make you feel safe again. The thought of you being scared of him made him so sad, that he started crying too and wouldn’t let go of you for a while.


Jeon Jungkook

As soon as he saw your tears he did completely forget what this fight was about and run over to you. He wiped away your tears and wrapped his arms around you, without saying anything – because he clearly didn’t know what to say. Until you calmed again he just hold you and didn’t keep his hands off you for the rest of the day, trying to show you how much he was sorry for causing you to cry. “I’m so sorry that this fight turned out like that, baby.”


Kim Taehyung

“Is this really worth it?” You asked him honestly, as you were tired of fighting. You weren’t fighting often but his time it was awful. He looked at you with wide eyes – did you really just say that? “Do you want to quit?” He said with a low voice. You sat down and covered your face with your hands, whispering: “Of course not.” Taehyung kneed down in front of you and pushed your hands to the side. “I love you more than anything in this world. We’ll get over this, ok?” He gave you a comforting smile and then wrapped his arms around you and pulled you closer to him. “Everything will be ok. You can count on me.”


NCT 127 reaction to you (an idol) choosing them as your ideal type

MASTERLIST

Anon: Hi there~ Reaction of NCT 127 when you ( an idol ) choose him as an ideal type :) Thank youuu ❤️

I had so much fun writing this! A lot of people have been anticipating this post so I hope you like it :-) tell me what ya think x

(this was a post scheduled for 01/02/17 so won’t be found of the masterlist yet. i’ll remove this message when it has been added :-) )


Taeil:

“-what? Really? Oh, oh, oh, thank you”

Taeil would get super blushy when the MC told him that you picked him as your ideal type. He wouldn’t be used to compliments and wouldn’t know how to respond or react. His cheeks would flush furiously, and he’d looked to the ground stuttering out a quiet thank you. For the rest of the day, he’d think about what you said and every time his heart would flutter and he’d be all cute and smiley awe.


Johnny:

“Ah! Y/N! Good choice!”

Every time I read reactions like this, people always make out Johnny to be some kind of flirter whose like “hit me up” or “aren’t I everyone’s ideal type?”. And although to some degree, I agree, I think he wouldn’t flirt too much or be too overly confident. He’d grin and jokingly tell you that you made a good choice, and you’d be able to see him blush a bit at the compliment. I don’t think he’d drag it on or basque in it for too long though.


Taeyong:

“Huh? Me? Me? She chose me?”

You know that huh sound that Taeyong makes when he’s surprised? Yeah, that was literally the first thought that came into my head for me haha. He wouldn’t be able to comprehend how someone so successful and talented like you, someone who could literally have your pick of anyone, would pick a rookie like him. He’d point to himself questioningly and his members would laugh at him, pushing his shoulder lightly. If he ever saw you at an awards ceremony or backstage, he’d definitely be all blushy and quiet around you.


Yuta:

Originally posted by nctuhohahyes

Yuta wouldn’t even say anything. Like seriously. Probably, he’d act like he had been told this millions of times before, acting like a cocky little shit. His charming smile would be plastered on his face and he’d look to the camera and wink sending a kiss, receiving a load of joke punches and cringes from the other members. Inside he’d be internally screaming and jumping for joy, since you were his crush and this basically meant he was yours too.


Doyoung:

“Awe, thank you Y/N! Thank you, thank you”

Again Taeil would be lost for words. He wouldn’t be shy over it but wouldn’t be arrogant over it either. Smiling sweetly, he’d nod briefly and laughing at the boys who were complaining that you had chose the wrong person as your ideal type. Subconsciously, he’d be rubbing the palms of his hands on his legs slowly in attempt to wipe of the sweat on his hands, and his heart would be pumping hard with adrenaline.


Jaehyun:

Originally posted by nctech

He’d do a little fist pump which would only make the MC and members laugh at him even more. They’d take it in a jokingly way, as if he was just acting. But really, he’d be totally flattered and stunned. He had spoken before about you and how he admired you and you were his ideal type, so finding out that you felt the same way would excite him about the future even more. Maybe he’d be able to date you one day…?


WinWin:

Originally posted by yoon-to-the-oh

Whenever gets complimented, he always does aegyo and will raise his shoulders innocently and blush A LOT. So I don’t think this would be any different if you said he was your ideal type. In fact it’d be worse! As everyone awe’d at him and gave him a pat on the back, he’d suddenly break out with some aegyo and send the camera hearts and kisses, sending all his love to you.


Mark:

Originally posted by haechannie

Mark would laugh nervously, knowing fully well that after the radio interview finished, he’d be mercifully teased and mocked by his hyungs and Haechan because that kid does not hold back lmao same He wouldn’t be able to hold back a small gasp, shocked as to why you would ever chose him when the likes of older, more mature and talented idols were around. Thanking you, he’d fidget uncomfortably for the rest of the interview, anticipating the next time he’d meet you and how things might change.


Haechan:

Originally posted by rapgodty

“Hyung! Y/N chose me and not you! Haha!”

Like Mark, Haechan would laugh, but he’d do it thinking it was some kind of prank. When he was told that it serious and 100% true, he’d be shocked and would sit in his chair, eyes wide in shock and his mouth hanging open. This’d be a complete surprise to him and he’d never expect to be chosen for anyone’s ideal type. He’d then resort to doing a small happy dance and teasing his members about how you chose him instead of them.

Fake Dating Series; The8/Minghao

- you’re a regular at this little family-owned chinese restaurant near your school
- you go there so often that you know the couple that works there
- it’s a fairly new restaurant and you were actually one of their first customers so whenever you come by, they always greet you warmly and sometimes even give you free food
- occasionally, their son minghao would come by to lend a hand
- you’ve always found him cute, from the first time you entered the restaurant and he served you
- he even goes to the same college as you and he’s actually in one of your classes, but he probably doesn’t even know it
- you don’t really mind that since you’re too scared to talk to him
- because he’s so handsome??? and perfect in every way???
- he works hard for his studies, he helps his parents out at the restaurant when he has free time, he’s a tutor for chinese, and he’s just an overall kind person and hard worker
- every time you see him, you tell yourself “today’s the day, I’M GOING TO TALK TO HIM” but before you could even say anything, you go like “nope, not today”
- your excuse is always “i might embarrass myself and then i’ll never be able to show my face in his family’s restaurant AGAIN”
- so you decide to just stay quiet and keep that “strangers who acknowledge each other” friendship
- moving on
- one day, you’re eating at the restaurant and this annoying guy from one of your classes enters through the door
- he orders takeout at the counter and while waiting for his order, he looks around the restaurant and he breaks out into a smile when he sees you
- you’re like “omfg no wHY” when you see him make his way over to you
- he exclaims “hey!! how are you?” and you sigh in relief and think “hmm, maybe we can have a normal conversation for once”
- but no, he starts flirting with you and insists that you give him your number no matter how politely you refuse
- you’re smiling on the outside to be nice, but inside you’re like HELP SOMEONE DOWAJWO SOS
- when he keeps asking for it, you say “i’m sorry….. i really can’t give it you” and he asks “but why not??”
- you lie “i….. have a boyfriend!!” and he’s clearly taken by surprise because he’s never actually SEEN you with anyone…..
- he says “what?? who??”
- at that very moment, minghao walks through the door and you point at him and exclaim “him!! he’s my boyfriend!!”
- minghao freezes at your words and stays that way even when the annoying guy turns around to look at him
- even minghao’s parents stopped what they were doing to look over at you and their son
- you shoot minghao an apologetic look and say “yup, that’s right, he’s my boyfriend.”
- the guy says “….really??” and when he isn’t looking, you clasp your hands together and mouth “please save me” to minghao
- minghao nods his head and says “…..that’s right.” he then makes his way over to you and asks the guy “is there anything you need?”
- the guy shakes his head and says “no….. nothing at all”
- he shoots you both a suspicious look, but backs off and leaves the restaurant when his takeout’s ready
- you turn to minghao the instant the guy’s out of sight and you say “i’m SO sorry!!! it’s just—he wouldn’t leave and i said the first thing that came to mind…..”
- he smiles at you and says “it’s fine, i get it” and he tells you to enjoy your meal as he joins his parents behind the counter
- your face is all red for the rest of your meal and you’re so embarrassed when you go up to the cash register because minghao’s the one ringing you up
- you quickly pay for your meal and leave the restaurant internally screaming “i messed up i messED UP IT’S OVER”
- but it’s when you get back to your dorm and you’re lying on your bed that you take out your receipt and realize…. minghao gave you a discount
- you brush it off as “i’m a regular….. that’s probably just why”
- you walk into class the next morning—the class you have with minghao—and since you know where he sits, you look down to pretend you didn’t see him and sit in one of the random available spots
- but just as you sit down, someone plops their backpack on the desk next to yours and you’re like great. it’s probably the annoying guy again
- but when you turn to face the person….. you almost let out a gasp to see minghao sitting there
- he must’ve noticed your confusion because he asks “is there something wrong?” and you ask “no, nothing, i just….. wasn’t expecting you to sit here.”
- he laughs “the guy might grow suspicious if we don’t sit next to each other.” and from the corner of your eye, you can spot the guy looking right at you both
- you look down and quietly say “you…. don’t need to do this, you know? i could just tell the guy i lied and everything. i’m sorry for dragging you into this.”
- minghao smiles “i’m okay with it.” and that’s all he says….. but you still feel guilty for making him do this
- class quickly comes to an end (and you unfortunately couldn’t even focus on the lecture), and minghao leaves without saying goodbye while you’re packing up your stuff
- you subtly turn your head to check if the annoying guy’s still there and seeing that he isn’t, you think “of course…. we’re back to being strangers when he isn’t there”
- it’s a bit sad to think about…. but what can you do…. you probably made things even more awkward with your fake dating lie…..
- you sigh and walk out of the class, but to your surprise, minghao is waiting outside
- he approaches you and asks “where’s your next class?” and you kind of fumble with your words before pointing to the right and saying “it’s th-that way.”
- minghao says “i’m heading there too, we can walk together.”
- you say “but…. the guy’s gone…. there’s no need to….”
- you don’t know why you didn’t just shut your mouth and rush over next to him because XU MINGHAO aka THE GUY YOU’VE BEEN KIND OF CRUSHING ON just offered to walk you to class
- minghao shakes his head and says “if i’m going to be walking in that direction too, then it’s the same thing.”
- you smile up at him, and you both walk down the school hallways side by side, and you’re kind of nervous but….. even though it’s quiet, you still feel happy
- minghao’s class is a little farther than yours, so when you both stop in front of the doors, you tell him “thanks for walking me here” and he says “no problem. i’ll see you around!!”
- he turns around and leaves, and as you watch his retreating figure, you continuously ask yourself “did that really happen??”
- this class is three hours long and it’s super boring and actually it’s your least favorite, but the entire time….. you’re smiling
- your next class with minghao is in three days (friday), and you’re really excited to see him again, but your excitement diminishes when your professor sends everyone a message saying that class is cancelled for that day
- you’re really disappointed upon hearing the news because one) you won’t get to see minghao and two) your two-hour break is now a four-hour break
- you know you can always see minghao at the restaurant but you kind of want to avoid that place for a while because you’re so embarrassed…..
- his parents definitely heard you say he’s your boyfriend, and he probably told them it’s just for pretend…..
- the only thing you can tell yourself is: WHY DID I LET THIS HAPPEN
- you think “okay. i’ll just eat instant ramyeon for tonight. i’ll be fine.”
- but when class ends at 7pm and you haven’t eaten since like 2pm….. it definitely isn’t enough to fill you up, you note as you stare at your empty instant noodles cup unsatisfied
- and that’s how you find yourself standing in front of minghao’s family’s restaurant after a long day
- you slap your forehead and sigh at how WEAK you are
- the restaurant closes at 10pm, and you enter through the doors by 9:15pm
- minghao greets you from the counter, where he’s waiting for his parents to finish cooking the current orders
- you sit on one of the tables, and you find it a bit weird that you haven’t received the menu yet…..
- but then minghao comes along with your regular order, and sets it on the table before you
- you look up at him and say “o-oh! thank you” and he just smiles while his parents wave at you from behind the counter
- the other customers leave before you could finish your meal, and feeling a bit awkward, you quickly finish up your food and head over to the counter to pay
- minghao asks “are you going to head back to the dorms now?” and you nod your head, but he says “alone? it gets dark early these days…..”
- you say “it’s all right, the dorms aren’t too far away”
- minghao looks a bit uneasy you can tell, and just as he’s about to hit the buttons on the cash register, he turns to his dad and asks “dad, can you take the cash register?”
- his dad nods and takes minghao’s spot, which confuses you a bit because…. what’s happening??
- noticing the confusion on your face, he says “meet me outside once you’re done paying, i’ll take you back to the dorms.”
- you say “what?? oh no, you really don’t need to!!” and minghao smiles “i want to. just to make sure you get back safely.”
- and with that, he walks out the door, leaving you behind with his parents
- his dad tells you the total amount to pay, and you hand him the exact amount while dropping a few coins in the tips jar
- you politely say thank you and good night to them, but before you could exit the door, minghao’s mom calls after you
- she doesn’t know your name, so she says “excuse me?” and you turn to her and say “yes?”
- she approaches the counter and with a kind smile, she tells you “please take care of our son.”
- you look at her, surprised that minghao didn’t tell her that you’re not actually dating
- and you feel so guilty that this is all a lie….. but you can’t bring yourself to tell her the truth, too afraid to disappoint her
- so instead, you smile at minghao’s parents and say “i will.”
- you walk out the doors of the restaurant and you see minghao standing against the wall of the restaurant with his bike at his side
- he says “ready?” and gets on his bike, while you blink in confusion, asking “you’re going to be biking there?”
- he nods, and pats the rear rack of his bike, “i’m going to be biking us there. hop on.”
- you walk over to him and sit on the back of his bike, holding onto the sides of the rear rack instead of wrapping your arms around him because you’re too shy to
- minghao turns to you and asks “are you ready?” and when he sees you nod your head, he takes off and starts heading in the direction of the dorms
- neither of you say a word, and nothing but the sound of crickets chirping and the howling of the wind can be heard as minghao slowly bikes through the empty neighborhoods
- eventually, he breaks the silence, and says “you might want to hold onto me for now. there are a bunch of turns coming up.”
- you nod your head and let go of the rack to hold onto his shirt, feeling your face heat up already
- but when the bike makes a bit of a jolt because of a bump in the road, you wrap your arms around minghao tightly and lay your head on his back as your way of hiding your red face
- so as to not make things feel awkward, you decide to start a conversation and say “minghao…. sorry for all this trouble…. but thanks for this.”
- minghao says “it’s nothing. i didn’t want you to walk back all by yourself, you know?”
- you smile to yourself at his words, and then ask “so where’s your dorm? west side or east side?”
- you see him shake his head and he says “i don’t have a dorm room. i live closeby, so there’s no need for me to get one. saves a lot of money, thank goodness.”
- you ask “you live closeby?” and he says “yup, i live a few minutes away from my family’s restaurant. in the other direction.”
- you guiltily ask “so i’m out of your way….?” and minghao says “i really don’t mind!! it’s not far, and besides, i’m the one who offered, so don’t feel bad.”
- you say “thank you again, minghao…. really.” and he replies “no problem.”
- minghao slows down and eventually stops when you reach the dorms, letting you get off his bike to head inside
- you say “be careful on your way home, all right?” and he laughs “don’t worry about me. good night, (name).”
- you head back to your dorm room and your roommate’s already asleep when you get there, but it doesn’t stop you from plopping onto your bed and screaming into your pillow about how CUTE minghao is!!!! and how he took you home on his bike!!!!
- a pillow suddenly hits you on the head, and you turn to see your roommate glaring at you
- they say “ok tell me what happened. but i’m warning you; if it isn’t interesting enough, i will kill you.” and you shut your mouth and start a bit of your homework, but you just can’t concentrate because your mind is only on minghao
- you wake up the next day with a smile on your face, but it sadly disappears when your roommate tells you it’s your turn to buy the groceries and you’re like ughhh WHY IT’S SATURDAY LET ME REST
- they say “do you want an actual meal or instant ramyeon?”
- “instant ramyeon doesn’t sound too bad—” “go get groceries.” “fine.”
- you’re walking down the busy streets, grasping the grocery list in one hand, and you enter the first grocery store you see
- you quickly pick up a few foods small enough to fit inside you and your roommate’s mini-fridge, and a bunch of snacks you can both eat while finishing up some late-night work
- after ringing up your items, you feel someone tap your shoulder and when you turn around, you see minghao smiling down at you
- you ask “minghao? what are you doing here?”
- he lifts up the bags he’s carrying and says “grocery shopping for the restaurant. are you heading back now?”
- you nod your head and he shyly asks “do you maybe want to….. walk back together?” and you exclaim a little too excitedly “sure!!”
- you start heading back to the dorms, but on your way there, you and minghao pass by a little shop, and minghao says “oh wait, i’m just going to take a quick stop here to get something for my mom.”
- the shop looks really cramped so you tell him “alright, i’ll be waiting outside.” and he nods his head and goes in
- you set down your grocery bags on the ground and play on your phone while waiting for him
- but a shadow suddenly looms over you, and you look up expecting to see minghao, but instead, you see this guy whom you’ve never seen before standing in front of you
- he says “hey!” and you slowly respond “…hi?…”
- he continues “what are you doing here all by yourself?” and you’re like ok. i know where this is going.
- the guy starts flirting with you and you’re clearly uncomfortable, but you just kind of shrug him off or dryly give him one-word answers
- while the guy’s in the middle of asking for your number, someone steps between you two and you look up to see that it’s minghao
- with a glare, he asks “is there something i can do for you instead?” and the guy asks “who are you?”
- minghao grabs your hand and says “their boyfriend.”
- you look up at minghao wordlessly, and the guy immediately apologizes and walks off because minghao looked so ready to drop-kick him in the face
- when he’s out of sight, minghao turns to you with a smile and asks “ready to start heading back?”
- you stutter “s-sure….!” but then you look down to see that he’s still holding your hand….
- minghao notices and quickly lets go, clearing his throat awkwardly, saying “s-sorry.”
- you’re about to pick up your groceries, but minghao grabs them before you and says “don’t worry, i got it!!”
- you and minghao walk the rest of the way home together, but the whole time, your mind is on the event that happened earlier when minghao told that guy that he was your…. boyfriend….
- minghao notices you looking pretty distracted, so he asks “are you all right?”
- your mind tells you to say “i’m fine, don’t worry!!” but instead, what comes out of your mouth is “why… did you tell that guy you’re my boyfriend?”
- minghao says “he looked like he was disturbing you, so i thought that saying i’m your boyfriend would get him to go away….. it worked, didn’t it?”
- and you say “oh, he was pretty annoying. thanks for saving me again” and he nods his head and keeps walking
- you tell yourself “stop overthinking!!! minghao’s just doing all this to keep this fake dating thing going…. he’s probably just doing all this to not make things awkward between you two, right???”
- the dorm is on the way back to minghao’s family’s restaurant, so he drops you off there
- while handing you your groceries, he asks “it was nice seeing you today. see you in class on tuesday?” and you nod your head
- you both say your goodbyes and you watch him go with a happy smile on your face, and when you turn around, you see the annoying guy from your class by the entrance
- you’re like “oh no” but the guy says “relax, i’m not going to ask for your number or anything. it’s just crazy to see that you’re actually dating that guy….”
- you ask “is there something wrong with that?” and he shakes his head “i didn’t mean for that to sound bad!! i meant…. i’ve never seen you two together before…. but i did now…. sorry for bugging you so much, i really didn’t know.”
- you say “thanks for being understanding.” and the guy grins “i’m also here to say bye, i’m dropping the class ahahah”
- you say “huh?? why??” and the guy shrugs “i don’t think i can stay motivated?? and i’m already taking the maximum number of courses, dropping one class will actually allow me to breathe”
- you say “o-oh, it was nice meeting you then” and the guy nods “you too, (name). best of luck with your boyfriend!!”
- the guy grins at you one last time before walking past you to probably head to the course registration building to drop his class
- as you watch him go, you think “oh, i can tell minghao we don’t need to pretend anymore”
- that’s what you tell yourself…. but when you see minghao sitting in the spot next to your unassigned assigned seat…. you can’t bring yourself to tell him
- if the guy’s convinced, if the guy dropped the class…. why should you keep pretending?
- you know you’re being selfish
- but sitting next to him in class? the bike ride? the groceries? you don’t want to let it all go just yet
- weeks pass, and you’re unsure if minghao knows that the guy dropped the class because he still sits next to you….
- the more days pass, you feel guiltier and guiltier because you’re just wasting his time
- you have to let go of your selfishness and break it off….
- you enter your class to find minghao there first as usual, and when you take a seat, he says “hey!! we have a new meal on the menu, do you want to come by later to try it out??”
- you nod your head and tell him you’ll come by at around 8pm tonight, and his face brightens at your words
- you get to the restaurant at 8:20pm, and minghao and his parents greet you enthusiastically as you enter through the door
- you say “hello!! minghao told me about the new meal” and his parents get straight to work while you sit on one of the tables
- after dinner, you walk over to the counter and minghao rings you up
- he says “i’ll take you back to the dorms, okay?” and you know you can’t argue with him so you just nod your head
- you say a quick good night to his parents, and follow minghao outside, where he’s working on unlocking his bike from the bike rack
- you sit on the rear rack and minghao starts pedaling, taking you in the direction of the dorms
- but instead of turning left at the end of the street, he turns right, and you ask “minghao, where are you going??? school’s the other way”
- minghao grins “there’s something i want to show you first!!!”
- you hold on tightly to him as he bikes through the dirt paths, and he stops when you both reach a field near the water
- the pearly-white moon is reflected on the water as well as the twinkling stars and you just….. never want this moment to end
- you say “it’s so beautiful….” and minghao says “i know right? i go here when i want some time alone. it’s really calming, especially during sunsets”
- as you’re watching the ripples forming in the river, you suddenly remember this whole fake dating thing…..
- minghao’s spending so much time on you and for what?? to keep that annoying guy away?? he’s gone now, there’s no reason to stay together anymore
- you…. have to let him know
- you say “minghao.”
- he says “yes?”
- you ask “you know that guy who made us start this whole fake dating thing?”
- he asks “what about him?”
- you look down and say “he dropped the class.”
- minghao looks at you as you continue “he…. he dropped it a while ago. i’m sorry i didn’t tell you.”
- he stays quiet after hearing your words, and you say “so…. we don’t have to do this anymore. i’m sorry i wasted your time.”
- you turn around and start heading back for the dorms
- and something inside of you hopes that he would call out your name, something inside of you hopes that he would stop you
- but he doesn’t
- three days later, you enter the class you and minghao have together, and even though you two just “broke up”, he’s still sitting in the spot next to your unassigned assigned seat
- minghao shifts his gaze over to you, and you both have eye contact
- but you’re the first to look away, and you take a seat somewhere else instead
- it’s been three weeks since you’ve been to minghao’s family’s restaurant
- you can’t bring yourself to go back there after the “breakup” because…. you know it was all for pretend, but you had hoped that…. maybe he learned to like you after all this time…..
- you sigh “i really have to get over this stupid crush…..”
- after an entire month of avoiding the restaurant, you finally decide to go one night
- you didn’t want to make his parents think that you got sick of their food or anything, so you decided on just getting takeout
- you don’t have to be there for long, and it shows that you still love their food PLUS minghao doesn’t always work on weekdays so if you’re lucky, he might not be there…..?
- you walk into the restaurant and sigh in relief to see that minghao isn’t at the counter like he always is
- his parents greet you warmly when they see you, and just as you’re about to tell them your order….. minghao walks out of the washroom and you just want to sink to the ground
- he looks at you and asks as he walks behind the counter “hey…. i’ll, uh, ring you up. takeout, right?”
- you nod your head and tell him your order, but while you’re waiting for the debit machine to tell you how much you owe, minghao says “it’s fine.”
- he takes his wallet out and swipes his own card on the machine, ignoring you, who’s saying “no, i can pay!!”
- after minghao shuts the cash register, an awkward silence follows and only the sound of his parents cooking fills the room
- you just kind of stand by the counter looking down to avoid eye waiting while waiting for your meal
- when minghao quietly says
- “you… haven’t passed by in a while.”
- you slowly look up at him and you both have eye contact
- he looks like he’s about to say something else, but he gets cut off by his dad, who holds your takeout box in front of you exclaiming “here you go!!”
- you take the food in your hands and say “thank you” before saying goodbye to minghao and his parents
- when you exit the restaurant, it only takes you about ten steps before the door behind you opens
- you turn around to see minghao running over to you and he says “i’ll take you back to the dorms.”
- you shake your head and say “i’m fine just walking back by myself, really. and i know it’s out of your way.” but minghao doesn’t listen and unlocks his bike from the bike rack
- he pedals over to you and nods over to the rear rack on his bike
- he says “hop on. the food will get cold.”
- you wordlessly sit on the back of his bike and minghao begins pedalling in the direction of campus
- the bike ride is quiet….. and you can’t help but think how AWKWARD it’s going to be once you reach the dorms
- when you finally get there, you get off his bike and say “thanks for taking me back….. i’ll see you around. good night, minghao.”
- you turn around and start walking towards the entrance, when minghao suddenly calls out your name
- you turn around to look at him and he gets off his bike to walk over to you
- he nervously says “i’ve never been good with words, but after all this time spent together…. i might have…. kind of…. will you…. maybe…? because i really…. really like—!”
- you cut minghao off by kissing him on the lips, and it takes a while for him to react, but when he does…. your lips curve into a smile at how clumsy he is
- but his lips are soft, and his hands are cupping your cheeks, and you just want to stay like this forever…..
- when you both pull away, you look into minghao’s eyes and laugh “i really, really like you too.”
- minghao breaks out into a grin, and cups your cheeks again, bringing your head down so that he can kiss you on the forehead
- you eat at minghao’s family’s restaurant the next evening, and at the end of your meal, while his dad is ringing you up, minghao goes outside to unlock his bike to take you back to the dorms
- you politely say thank you and good night to his parents, but before you could exit the door, minghao’s mom calls after you, but this time, she knows your name
- she says “(name)?” and you turn to her and say “yes?”
- she approaches the counter and with a kind smile, she tells you “thank you… for making our son so happy.”
- you look out the window, and smile fondly as you watch minghao waiting for you on his bike
- you turn back to his parents and say “no, minghao’s the one who makes me happier than anyone else in the world.”
- you say good night to them, and you hop onto the rear rack of minghao’s bike like always, wrapping your arms around him while lying your head on his back
- halfway back to the dorms, he asks “i saw you talking to my parents. what did they say?”
- you joke “they just said that you’re really lucky to be dating something like me.”
- he says “well, they’re right.”
- you don’t respond, and instead smile to yourself as you wrap your arms around him even tighter
