Archive Of Our Own has outpaced fanfiction.net

In 2015, the rate of new works started per day on the non-profit archive exceeded that of the older fanfiction.net, and this fan-run project is set to surpass the fastest growth of either archive in 2017. 

Below the cut, I explain where these numbers come from, look more closely at the seasonal variation in each archive, and the overall pace of fanworks being posted.

Lust & Errors 04

Rated: M

Warning: Excessive graphic smut, age gap, marijuana usage.

SummaryStep brother, fuck buddy… They were one and the same now. But what started out as some mindless fucking game, quickly turns into something much more difficult and complex.

Note: Hell has frozen over and the sun has rose in the west. Part 4 is here, and I have no explanation for the tremendously long wait. “✐” means flashback and two of them means end of flashback.

A long yawn escaped your lips in the middle of your explanation of a math problem. You covered your mouth as it gasped with the yawn and leaned back in the hard, wooden chair, desperately wishing it would somehow turn into your bed.

“Tired?” Jungkook asked, looking down at a piece of paper as he hurriedly wrote down what you assumed to be a note.

“A little.” You admitted with a sleepy drawl, too tired to hide the fact that you were tired and your eyes scanned over the page in the book you had been reading from, trying to find where you stopped.

When he was finished writing down his note, he glanced up at you expectantly, but once he noticed the sheer exhaustion painted plain as day on your face and weighing down your body, he sat up straight himself and cleared his throat. “We can stop, you know. If you’re tired.” His voice was a bit rushed and he sounded kind of guilty. “I-I’m sorry.” He chuckled, but it sounded forced and nervous.

It was odd to see Jeon Jungkook act nervous, when you were so used to cocky smirks and his overly confident attitude. But if there was one thing you noticed while tutoring him for the past two weeks, it was that tutoring him was a lot different than you had initially expected.

You had figured he was secretly some math genius and had only asked for your help in order to get into your pants. After all, it wasn’t exactly hard to tell that you were a virgin. And guy’s like Jeon Jungkook, loved girl’s like you.

Well, at least that’s what you thought.

They hardly ever fight.

Disagreements they have in spades, ranging from the playful to the exasperated to the irritated. But actual fights? For Lucy and Lockwood, those are few and far between, and usually only about one thing: each other’s safety.

The quickest way Lockwood’s found to make Lucy truly angry is to imply—or worse, actually act on the assumption—that her life is worth more than his. It doesn’t matter if the act of risking his own life saves hers. It doesn’t matter that they both always make it out alive. One of Lucy’s deepest rooted fears is someday being responsible for his death, and when he is forced to make her face that fear he knows they’re in for a fight.

Day Three | Part 3

Summary: You have a crush on Peter, but Peter has eyes for someone else. Will you ever get the boy of your dreams or will you have to remain friends and move on?

Characters: Peter Parker (Tom Holland) x Reader

Warnings: None

Word Count: 1,274

A/N: I’m on a roll guys!! I would also like to thank every single one of you for sending me feedback and loving everything so far. I haven’t been this excited to write, in a really long time, so thank you! Part two can be found here.


It was Twin Day at school today and you had coordinated with Michelle to be punk rockers. Typical theme, but it got the job done. In the morning, you both pestered Ned to take pictures of the both of you. Ned, however, was missing his twin, Peter, who hadn’t shown up to school yet. You didn’t see him leave the building this morning or the train. You thought he would be here with all the excitement that happened yesterday with him. It wasn’t also typical for Peter Parker to be skipping school, maybe Tony Stark had just kept him for the day, and the school excused him.

As the warning bell rang to get to class, Liz out of all people approached you.

“(Y/N)! Do you know where Peter is? I want to talk to him about Homecoming,” she said.

“No, I haven’t seen him this morning. None of us had. You should try ringing him,” you said.

“I did, he didn’t pick up. Oh well. Thanks,” and with that Liz was on her way to homeroom and so were you and Michelle.

Discrimination gets you nowhere, except bankruptcy.

This is gonna be a long post. Get comfy.

So within the last year or so I made a bunch of life altering decisions.
One of those was moving to another side of the country after being offered a job at a company in the state I wanted to live in. My boss, we’ll call him Brandon, had known me for a while (I work in an industry where most people know each other and the key players) and had offered me a job knowing my criteria and many other things. I was well qualified for the job he has hired me for.

So I move across country and I begin working. This company has a main office and a supplying warehouse, the supplying warehouse was where I worked. No manufacturing done here, just supporting parts for the main office. Within a month the owner of the company, Viet, shows up at the office looking for my boss. (The main company is about 8 or 9 hours away so this was a long drive and the owner never came down to the warehouse, not since it opened originally 7 years go). My boss isn’t there (he usually isn’t and doesn’t need to be because I can handle it and he lives up the road if I need him). Viet immediately begins yelling at me. He never once speaks to me. He yells at me the whole time he is communicating with me. Berating me on the fact I need to take inventory because fiscal year is about to be up and that I need to maintain the warehouse and had I ever done this before. He gave me the third degree and treated me like an idiot. Meanwhile I had texted Brandon and he showed up and Viet changed his tune completely. At that point he didn’t even speak to me at all. Didn’t even make eye contact. The two of them chatted and then Viet left.

Everyone is saying that the professor is grinding the Pokémon into candy, but consider the following:

• The professor frantically running around with assistants, inspecting hundreds of thousands of pidgeys a day, getting bitten and screeched at while they try to figure out if this pidgey has been tagged yet so they release them back to track their migration

• Panicked interns trying to scoop the ekanses back into their tank because theyre freaking out the rattatas

• Three caterpies climbed into a vent and evolved into metapods that are too far in to reach so six underpaid college students are trying to dismantle ductwork

• Theres a big door marked “KEEP OUT” because a dozen oddish evolved into a squad of Vileplumes and until they stop releasing stun spores the entire room is just off limits

• Hundreds of researchers running on red bull and determination trying to tag and examine all the Pokemon but having to turn off the machine every once in a while to the discontent of trainers who are all getting a “Sorry, the servers are currently down” message at LEAST twice a day

• “GPS not found” flashes while returning a big group and suddenly Florida has been gifted 6,000 mankeys right in the middle of Epcot

• Someone in the back room up to their waist in stale dog treats with a bunch of little stamps. They sigh deeply at how gullible Pokemon trainers are that they think these things actually do anything other than excite the Pokemon so much they evolve

• Actual science professor surrounded by chaos and interns and a budget just too small

Ok but don’t you think it’s kinda weird that at cons and stuff misha is so pro destiel and Jensen is so like heck no not happening??? Like you would think they’d be told to be on a united front or something right. WeeeLLLLL GET READY FOR MY BIG IDEA

What if???? They’ve been told to take opposing views. They’re like Misha listen Cas loves Dean with all his heart. They’re hella gay play it up. And then they go to Jensen Ok here’s the deal Dean loves Cas but he is so far back in the fucking closet he’s like a winter coat that’s three sizes too small in the middle of summer. Ok so just like he has no idea ok run with that.

And they’re totally playing us and one day probs when we get that reunion because you know when he watched cas die all he was thinking about was how much he loved him. We are going to get our destiel revelation.

I’m not one to usually post new Sonic news so early…but this is an exception.
My hype has been multiplied, however the episode Shadow DLC has only been seen (so far) on Xbox One and Playstation store as a digital bonus.
UPDATE: Episode Shadow add-on/dlc will be available on the day Forces is released for whoever owns Sonic Forces, physical or digital (presumably on all platforms). If you pre-order the digital version you get a little Shadow costume for your custom character.

“Get EPISODE SHADOW to uncover the untold story of the new villain Infinite, and rediscover three updated stages playing as Shadow. Plus, play as Shadow in over 10 Modern Sonic based stages!
Experience the full story behind the new villain’s rise to power and as you find renewed replayability across Modern Sonic stages. The fate of Sonic the Hedgehog’s world is in your hands - Join the Uprising.”
EDIT: I’ll reblog this post with more news should it come to my attention, like I already have with him being playable in Modern Sonic’s levels as well. 

Headcanons for Dating Fred Weasley

  • This mf pranks you ALL THE TIME.
    • He’s not sorry about it either, unless you’re really pissed.
    • Usually it’s just cute and harmless shit, like temporary hair dye or a temporary tattoo on your face that says something nerdy or that you love him or something.
    • Sometimes he’ll shrink your shoes, just to see what you say.
    • He shrank a jumper of yours once just a touch, but after you freaked out about gaining weight he decided NEVER AGAIN.
    • George likes to help and then throw Fred all the way under the bus. You know George is helping but you let it slide.
  • Fred has an interesting PDA philosophy.
    • Fred likes mocking PDA, like he’ll imitate whatever nasty couple is nearby just to make a point. 
    • He’ll hold your hand or put his arm around you but that’s about all the genuine PDA you’ll get from him.
  • Quidditch!
    • If you play at school on the Gryffindor team, you’re a reserve beater. He makes a lot of jokes about you usurping his position on the team.
    • If you’re from another house, competition is fierce and unforgiving. Both twins are merciless with the bludgers and it becomes very ugly. You both enjoy it though, so there’s no hard feelings. You like to mock him when your house wins, and he likes to mock you when Gryffindor wins.
    • If you don’t play, no matter what house you’re in, he wants you to at least cheer for him. Even if you’re ONLY cheering for him.
    • You guys ALWAYS get a game started over the holidays, at least once. You usually play opposing captains, and it’s always a bloodbath when you do.
  • You, Fred, and George become the fuck-shit-up trio of seventh year.
    • Detentions all the time. Every time. Sometimes it’s just Fred and George, sometimes it’s you too. The three of you don’t mind, as long as it isn’t with Umbridge.
    • The first time you write lines, you’re alone. You cast a spell in her class to make a point and in return you wrote, “I will not cast without permission.”
    • The scar fades, but the memory doesn’t. Neither does Fred’s anger.
    • When the twins decide to pull their final prank, you stay behind. Fred tells you he loves you and proposes right before they leave.
  • You move in with Fred and George above the shop after graduating from Hogwarts.
    • You keep the books for the shop, letting the twins focus on selling the product and making more.
    • Fred pranks you now more than ever, but you have a means of getting him back now: his own products.
    • You’ve ripped holes in pants, you’ve given him treats from his own shop–your favorite so far has been the Barking Bark, which made him bark every other word for about an hour. Quite fun.
    • George makes fun of you two for being loud at night.
    • The three of you remain inseparable through dark times, and take turns watching the shop when the other two go on Order missions.
  • You and George bond and become like brother and sister.
    • You two were close during your Hogwarts days, best friends. But once you live with him he becomes your brother. You affectionately refer to him as such, and he returns the favor.
    • “This is my brother, (Y/N).”
    • “Shut it, George.”
    • You start stealing his jumpers, too, but he actually says something about it and wants them back–unlike Fred.
  • Fred is a cuddler, through and through.
    • Despite his PDA, he’s quite the cuddler when you two are alone. Spooning is his favorite, and who is the big spoon changes from day to day. He also quite likes facing you, as it means he can see your face when you laugh at his jokes.
    • You cuddle on the couch sometimes, but usually only in the bedroom so as not to bother George.
  • You and Fred elope as soon as you can.
    • You guys come back to the apartment one day with wedding bands and George congratulates you two without much fuss, since Fred told him before that this was the plan.
    • Molly Weasley almost murders Fred when she finds out you two eloped. “FREDERIC GIDEON WEASLEY!” “I’m sorry mum, we didn’t want a fuss!”
    • Your engagement ring is gold with a simple ruby on the band. Your wedding bands are both gold, with the other’s name engraved on the inside.
  • At the Battle of Hogwarts, you refuse to leave his side.
    • He’s your husband, the love of your life, and you won’t be separated.
    • You’re there when he dies, and you kill the Death Eater that took him in turn.
    • You fall apart, and you and George spend the hour crying together. The Weasleys all mourn as a family, and you’re one of them.
    • Molly tries to give you his wedding band, but you refuse. You say it belongs on his hand, even in death.
    • You die in the second half of the battle, your grief overpowering any sense of caution you may have once had. You died saving Percy, and Percy never forgets that.
  • Fred is there to greet you in limbo.
    • “I’m proud of you, love.” And then–
    • “Remus and Sirius were two of the MARAUDERS!”
  • You two are the limbo welcoming committee for all of the people from Hogwarts, while you wait for George.
    • Lee and his wife come through eventually. They hang out for a while, then decide to move on.
    • McGonagall cries when she sees the two of you. She passed away in her sleep after serving as the Headmaster for many, many years. She tells you of the utter fuckery that your memorial portraits get up to, and how Peeves does in fact find ways to besmirch the name of Dolores Umbridge, even as she rots in a cell in Azkaban.
    • This touches Fred’s heart.
    • Flitwick is overjoyed to see the two of you, and immediately figures out that you’re waiting for George before you pass on.
    • Molly and Arthur are the first to arrive, crying over their son. Molly and Arthur move on after visiting for a while.
    • Then Bill, then Charlie. Bill waits for Fleur; Charlie waits for no one, claiming he has dragons waiting on him in the Afterlife. When Fleur arrives, she and Bill move on.
    • Percy and his wife arrive together, having died in an accident at an old age. They move on.
  • And finally, George rolls up after about a hundred years, followed shortly by Angelina.
    • George and Fred have a tearful reunion, and you and Angelina chat it up while they hug and cry.
    • George also latches on to you when he and Fred finally let go of each other. “It’s so good to see you,” he says. And it is.
    • “I can’t believe you guys waited for me.”
    • “What, like we were going to pass on without you? No way.”
  • The four of you pass on together, as a family. And Afterlife is wonderful.

anonymous asked:

Can you imagine Isak's face when he finds out about Evan's mums?Something like when Evan opened his locker in that iconic way.And maybe Evan didn't tell him, bc why it's completly normal and ok(and he's kind of bitch and loves teasing him)and when he brings him to a family dinner two sweet women rushed to hug Isak and give him kiss on cheek for greeting and Isak has that"what's happening"face( same when Evan kissed him after meeting the boy squad and "u r so hot Isak" sentence)&Evan is laughing

ok so, i lied. i made this into a (sort of?) fic. so, here’s 3k words of isak finding out even has two moms. i’m sorry.


Isak is maybe, possibly freaking out. Just a little bit. Not actual, full on anxiety that makes him feel like his heart is beating as fast as a hummingbird’s, but. He’s getting there.

Even had said it so naturally too, just what do you say we drop by tomorrow?, and he had actually looked kind of nervous, to his credit, but more about Isak’s answer than actually having him meet his fucking parents.

And of course it’s easy for Even, Isak has never once seen him uncomfortable in a social situation. Even when they were standing in the tram, stealing little glances at each other and smiling nervously, Isak too fucking shy around Even to say anything, Even had managed to smooth his way through it, awesome conversation, though. So it’s understandable he’s not nervous about hanging out with three people he loves. But Isak, he can’t even have lunch with his own parents without feeling incredibly uncomfortable, let alone his boyfriend’s. What would he even say? Hello, Mr and Mrs Næsheim, I sucked your son off in the shower the other day, congrats on the genes!

We need more batfam dysfunctional examples

You ask for it, I deliver! 😊

• The red stain on the carpet is from when Dick tried balancing a glass of cranberry juice on his feet while doing a handstand. Why, you ask? Well, Alfred has been asking himself that question for three years

• *tired Bruce voice* “No, Jason, you can’t set your grave on fire. Why? BeCAUSE WERE NOT INSANE, THATS WHY. GOD!!”

• Person: “I’m so sorry to hear about your brother’s death, you must be so distraught right now I wish there was something I could do to help.” Batkid: *sips from a juice box* “Nah, he’ll be back in a day or two just give it time”

• Tim keeps trying to use the WE company’s money to buy more and more ridiculous things just to see what he can get away with before Bruce notices. So far he’s made it to buying four thousand pirate-themed bouncy houses, and Bruce still hasn’t even realized, which is strange considering Tim had them all dumped in their backyard

• Tim drinks apple juice out of wine glasses and acts like it’s wine

• Stephanie is an infamous remote control thief. She’ll be watching something on tv and get bored and leave the room, but forget that she still has the remote in her hand. So whenever they lose the remote, they always have to check in Steph’s room first

Mrs. America-Prologue

Summary- Captain America x y/n Kent - Y/n Kent is the daughter of superman and wonder woman. Her parents send her to another universe because their world is ending. Here she meets fury and he helps her get used to this new world and has been working unofficially as his assistant since she was 20. Then Loki attacks and she has to step up and become a member of the avengers.

Message-There is basically no interaction with any marvel characters in this chapter. This is 100% just background information on the reader. Sorry if this sucks!!!

Word Count-547


“Your name is Y/N Kent.” You said to yourself while looking into your foggy bathroom mirror. “Your parents’ names were Diana and Clark Kent. Their dead. Your whole world is dead. But you’re not. You survived. ” This was your mantra. You said it to yourself every morning. If you didn’t remind yourself of your old life it seemed like a dream-or maybe a nightmare.

           You grew up happy. Living in Kansas with your little super family. Your father was Kal-El of Krypton who was known as Superman on your earth. While your mother was Wonder Woman, the God killer, the immortal princess of ‎Themyscira

           You had been training to fight alongside them your entire life. But when you were 14 they came, an unstoppable force that not even your parents could defeat. You did not know where they came from or why they came for your home world and you probably never would. You had been on the Watch Tower with your parents and friends when they came and blew the earth to smithereens. The war for the earth had ended before any of the league members knew that it had even started. The next thing you remember is your parents shoving you into a pod. While they were doing that your Uncle Bruce was shoving Dick into the pod on your left and your Uncle Barry was shoving Wally into the pod on your right.  You could still hear your parents telling you how much they loved you. Your father handed you his cape, while your mother handed you her tiara, bracelets and lasso. Then they both kissed your cheek for the last time and then they closed your pod. After this your memory of what happened gets a little hazy. They had opened some sort of portal while your pod filled with some sort of gas. The next thing you remember is waking up and seeing a gun pointed at you.

           Turns out your parents had been more prepared for the end of your world than you thought. You had found a crystal from your father’s fortress in your pod with a message from them. It said that they loved you and their only wish was for you to live a happy life surrounded by people who you loved and who loved you in return. They said that since you were watching this that it couldn’t be them who filled your life with love anymore. The crystal has many more videos but they are for special occasions like birthdays, Christmases, and your wedding day. The crystal also had a video explaining that Dick and Wally had been sent to other universes far away from the one that you had been sent to. They had separated the three of you to keep you guys safe.

Suddenly you heard a knock at your door. You used your super speed to finish getting dressed and then you went and opened your door.

“Today’s the day.” Fury said while leaning on your door frame. 

“Please, it’s not like I haven’t been your assistant before. Today it just becomes my official job title.” You said while grinning at him. Fury had found you and took you in when you were 14, scared and alone.

“That’s not what I meant Y/N.” He murmured grimly.

“What do you mean?”  You asked

“I mean today is the day the world meets Super Woman.”

anonymous asked:

Emma have you seen the post with those two giant looking dudes with a sign that says "If you feel safe on campus we'll walk with you"? Because all I can think about is Stiles doing that, and ok ok he KNOWS he looks scrawny on first glance but excuse you he has a BLACKBELT (au obvs) and so he wears really tight shirts to show off what muscles he has, tries to look intimidating, he starts getting a few people to come to him, mostly girls, a couple of much smaller, maybe more feminine looking 1/?

lgbtq guys and so far Stiles has only had to actually fight someone once wich is pretty good for a three-month period (it happened in the first month and apparently word got around that Stiles knows his shit, he hasn’t been bothered since) and then one day out of the blue this guy who’s bigger than he is and hairy and totally looks like a werewolf shyly comes up to him and asks if Stiles would walk him home and Stiles is just ??? 

Because this guy could EASILY intimidate people about seven thousand times better than Stiles could but he can tell that the guy is sincere and Stiles doesn’t discriminate, ok? That’s kinda the entire base for this thing, so the guy, Derek, becomes one of his regulars, and Stiles starts noticing that Derek is mostly ok… until they get to this one particular part of the neighborhood, around this one specific house, when he suddenly gets tense and quiet and huddles closer to Stiles and for about a month Stiles is just left sorta wondering about it until one day when this blonde woman comes outside to “greet” Derek, and Stiles recognizes her as Kate Argent, one of the professors at the local college. 

And it takes exactly ONE time of seeing how they interact- Kate taunting and barely containing her laughter, Derek practically shaking with fear- for Stiles to GET it, thus sets on the journey of getting Kate fired and imprisoned for what she did to Derek and when it’s all over Derek decides to join Stiles in the mission to help people get home safely and volunteers to start walking people around campus too, and he and Stiles still walk home together, but now it’s as boyfriends.

Alright, nonnie, this started off adorable and awesome and I thought it was going to be grumpy Derek Hale getting mad Stiles is taking over his territory or shy!Derek not knowing how to talk to Stiles and asking him to walk him home, only to admit months later he never really needed him to.

But OH. FUCKING. NO.

You had to throw the Kate Argent card in there and I went from this

to this

real quick.

Kate Argent can rot in hell. In hell. And not the cool part of hell where you get to hang out with the devil in one of his many hot tubs but in the part of hell where you have to shovel coal for no other reason than YOU SUCK. 

I can’t deny, however, protective!Stiles is my jam especially when it comes to Derek and I’d love a fic of this.

You brought smiles, you brought tears. You’re all rounder, nonnie, an all rounder.

SNS Month is here!

Hi! So here I am again^^ Just one week I hope and I’ll be free, my vacations finally will be here! T^T I just remembered last night that yesterday SNS has begun, and I didn’t do anything! I felt so bad for that 😢

My iPad gets crazy when I was trying to save this on my phone’s memory XD

Part 1 Part 2 Part 4

A/N: I do not own the picture

Summary: When Baekhyun shows up at your door in the middle of the night begging you not to leave him, you never imagine the heartbreak you’re in for

You don’t know how long it will take to get over Baekhyun. It has been three days and so far, you only feel worse.

At first, you would get a nauseating feeling that would wash over you every time you would think of Baekhyun and the way he had looked leaving your house. You tried to drown it every time with sleep, but would burst into tears whenever his leftover scent from the night before drifted to your nose. It was poison but, like a drug addict, you couldn’t get enough and made no move wash the scent out. For that first day, you stayed in your room, clinging to the sheets like a child. Despite what Baekhyun had done, despite how he had hurt you, his scent made you feel safe.

On the second day, you had become numb. You had cried everything out to the point where you had no more tears. So you would sit on your bed staring at the ceiling, eyes bloodshot and nose dry and raw from constantly blowing into tissues.

It was Monday and you had work, but despite knowing that your absence could be detrimental for a potential promotion, you just could not bring yourself to get dressed and head out into the real world. You had managed to call your boss early on, who agreed that it was best you stay home, especially with the amount of photographers parked right outside of your work place. Upon hearing that, you had made sure all your blinds were closed. If they had found where you worked, there had been no doubt in your mind that there was paparazzi outside you house.

Other than calls from your boss, you had only accepted ones from your worried family members and your best friend, all of whom you had to beg to leave you alone for now. You’d given the excuse that you just wanted to hide from the media right now and that accepting visitors would fuel people’s curiosity. But really, you just couldn’t deal with the inevitable questions about your broken relationship.

Sehun had tried to call after the whole incident a few more times but you hadn’t picked up. You weren’t sure if he would make excuses for Baekhyun and couldn’t risk it hearing him trying to justify or downtalk his behavior. While you two were friends, he would ultimately have to remain loyal to his member. You could respect that but it didn’t mean that you had to deal with it. He’d left a message asking how you were doing and asked you to give him a call, but you hadn’t sent anything back. Other than him, the other members of EXO hadn’t made a move to contact you. They didn’t owe you anything and really, you had been rather grateful for it. The less people from your ex-boyfriend’s life that bothered you, the better.

You knew that you couldn’t avoid the world forever. You just needed a little more time. The world would be watching you the moment you stepped out the door, eager to see how you looked. You weren’t strong enough yet to bear the weight of their eyes yet.

You had expected to be better the next day. But instead, you wake up on the third day feeling shittier than ever before. Baekhyun’s scent has finally faded from your sheets and you now have nothing to hold on to. You are emptier than ever and you don’t think you’ll ever be full again. It hurts more than you thought it would. You’re not crying anymore and your lungs don’t feel like they’re on fire anymore, you’re just empty. And somehow, it’s worse. You think you prefer when you had been numb. At least then you didn’t have to feel. Now, you feel lonely and sad and scared. Scared because it feels like this will go on for eternity, that you’ll be a shell of your old self for the rest of your life. You miss smiling, you miss being happy.

For hours, the fear dominates your body. You stare at yourself in the bathroom mirror. You’re paler than you’ve ever been, your lips are chapped, skin is flaking around your nostrils. You’re miserable.

Suddenly, you feel a hot flash of anger. Your whole life has been ruined because of one person. You allowed someone to have this much control over you. You had given your entire heart to someone with the hope that they would be delicate with it. And now you’re surprised over that hope being crushed? It’s your fault for trusting someone like him. Someone like Baekhyun, a man who lives in a different planet from you. Maybe it would have been different if you had been an idol too. But you’re not. You’re an ordinary girl that thought she could be a part of Byun Baekhyun’s world without getting hurt. Fuck, you had been so foolish.

This is it. This anger is the surge of energy that you have been waiting for. You won’t let yourself be foolish anymore. You’re not going to let Baekhyun affect you like this.

You take a long bath, washing the stress and tiredness from your body. You pick out a nice, clean set clothes and apply some makeup, trying your best to conceal the impact these few days have had on you. You’re going to go out today and try to be normal. You think maybe you’ll visit your best friend and have a nice, normal conversation with another human being.

You actually make an effort with breakfast, seeing as how you’ve only been living off of potato chips and ice cream lately. You put together a nice plate that you devour immediately, your stomach thanking you for a real meal.

You put on your shoes and get your coat from the cabinet and open the door with a small smile, one that immediately falls short when you’re met with an older-looking man standing in front of you, his hand reaching towards the doorbell. You must have opened the door just as he was about to ring. He looks surprised to you see you and clears his throat.

”Miss Y/N, if I could just have a moment of your time-,”but you cut him off immediately.

”I’m sorry, but I’m not taking any questions right now. I’m not comfortable with having an interview.” You try to move past him but he steps in front of you, shaking his head quickly.

“No, no, I’m not a reporter. I’m here on behalf of SM Entertainment to discuss the future actions that will need to be taken to protect yours and Mr. Byun’s reputations.”

You roll your eyes. SM couldn’t care less about your ‘reputation’. Of course they would try to cover up the cheating scandal to protect their idol. You hadn’t expected anything else.

“Let me guess, the company wants me to come out and say that Baekhyun and I broke up before the pictures were taken?” Your voice is so cold and void of emotion that the man flinches and at the very least seems to have the decency to look ashamed.

“Miss, I know you must be going through a lot right now but it is important to consider the implications that come with this ordeal. It will likely follow you both and ruin your careers. The company is already going to issue that Baekhyun’s relationship with you has been over for quite some time and your statement about having had an earlier, amiable breakup with Mr.Byun would put an end to the media threats, ” the man swallows as your face darkens, “Please, if you could just conduct an interview in about a week’s time, the company is willing to offer a large sum of payment.”

An interview? They want you to go on television and lie to paint Baekhyun as an innocent person. Are they fucking serious?

You almost release a sad, bitter laugh “Sorry, I won’t do it.”

This time, when you step out of the house, he doesn’t try to stop you and just lets you go. Your anger has now doubled. If the company had tried to cover it up, does that mean that Baekhyun knows about it? The idea that he is trying to cover his own ass drives you even more crazy.

Suddenly you can’t stop yourself from reaching for your phone and sending him a text.

‘If you thought I would help you cover up what you did, then you never knew me at all. I don’t care how much it hurts you career, I’m not doing an interview and lying about what you did. I don’t want anything to do with you.’

You let out a breath you hadn’t realized you had been holding. You’re about to put your phone inside your coat when his caller id appears on the screen.

You answer without even thinking. You curse yourself over and over again because now you’re holding the phone to your ear and you don’t even know what to say.

“Y/N, hello? Are you there?” he sounds sick and you hate that you that the first thought you have when you hear his voice is if he’s eating and sleeping enough. You hate that you still care.

You didn’t think you’d be hearing his voice so soon, if ever. You’re not ready for this. It still hurts too much.

You keep your mouth shut, not trusting yourself to speak. After a bit, he realizes that you’re still on the line and continues. “Please, you have to know that I would never do that to you, the company is doing this without my say. I can’t control what they release to the media.”

’I would never do this to you.’ You had thought he would never do a lot of things but clearly, you had no idea what he was capable of.

“I now I’ve hurt you, but I never wanted to. God, Y/N, I love you so much. So fucking much. I’m going to be sorry for what I did for my entire life. I deserve everything that comes from this. I deserve your hate and if you want to hurt me back, you can do anything you want. I can take it, I promise. I’ll never forgive myself. I’m so sorry. You know I’m sorry, right? Please answer me.” His voice breaks off into sobs and you can’t understand what he’s saying anymore, everything comes out in unintelligible mumbles.

“Please just let me hear your voice, baby. Say something.”

You fight the urge to comfort him. You want to say something, tell him it’s okay, that you know he regrets it and that you forgive him. The words are all on the tip of your tongue. But you can’t. You would be lying, not just to him but to yourself as well. It’s not okay. You do not forgive him. You can’t comfort him. Not anymore.

You hang up and begin to walk to your friend’s house.

  • Healy will be appearing in Season 5, Michael Harney confirmed it.
  • Laura Prepon is pregnant in real life, this might indicate that Alex will not be in the start of Season 6 (maternity leave?)

Edit: I also feel like I should talk about casting, last night I looked through all the episodes on IMDB, sometimes looking at the cast can give hinters/create more questions (little side note, Natasha nor Laura are listed for any of the episodes, but I’m not worried about that.) Also note that a lot of these are nitpicky, but I feel like it’s still interesting to point out new cast members, especially if they’re significant/known to characters.

  • Episode 1 - Nothing significant about the casting of this episode, apart from Ilyana Eberhardt as stunt double for Maritzia,  Stefanie Flores as a stunt double for Flaca, Dejay Roestenberg as a stunt double for Brandy

  • Episode 5 - Kat Harley as CERT member #4 (in it to episode 12, CERT stands for ‘computer emergency response team’, so that’s interesting…), Mary Kate Malat as a Prep School Student, Booch O'Connell as a Thurston Academy Student (Google states that it’s a Martial Arts school, but it could just be a fictional school), Anthony Caravana as Thurston Academy HeadmasterBlanchard Ryan as a reporter (also in episode 12), Tequilla Whitfield as Tanisa and Chantelle Antoinette as wobble dancer #8
  • Episode 6 - Thea McCartan as Susan Logan, Frank Ridley as a drunk guy and Morgan Wolk as Kristen Master
  • Episode 7 - Nothing significant apart from 7 stunt doubles, for which characters are unlisted 
  • Episode 8 - Danny Ramirez as Paolo (Paolo may be Nicky’s mum’s boyfriend, whom she mentioned in the pilot episode, although the actor does look to be in his 20s while Nicky’s mum is like 50+, so yeah, probably not that Paolo…), Chelsey Cary as a stunt double for Leanne,  Stefanie Flores as a stunt double for Dwights and Alexa Marcigliano as a stunt double for Doggett (also in episode 13)
  • Episode 9 -  Gabriel Furman cast as a young Dimitri, Zack Gafin as Max, Miguel Izaguirre as Diablo (looks like we’ll be seeing more of Blanca’s boyfriend/ex), Xenia Leblanc as young Red, Pavel Shatu as  Kostya, Samantha Lee Johnson as someone’s family member, Chad Knorr as a stunt double for Piscatella (also in episode 10 and 11) and Joanne Lamstein as a stunt double for Red (also in episode 10 and 11)

So far, that’s it. Feel free to add if you know more, rumored or not.

You stood in front of the giant mirror on an elevated platform in your closet. You adjusted the skirt on your two piece dress. The black maxi skirt ended just above your toes, it’s split thigh exposed your leg. The top was also black, it was sleeveless and had a plunging v-neck bodice, the rest was sheer.  The two-piece exposed a small portion of your stomach. Shea had picked out a gold armband to go with the dress. She handed you a pair of black lace-up heels. You slipped them and nodded in approval at your appearance.

This would be your fourth date with Bucky. So far you’ve been to three different restaurants and in each one, Bucky has done something unexpected. He went out to a business meeting early in the day and he hasn’t arrived yet. Shea had reassured you that he’ll arrive soon enough and encouraged you to get ready. Now you were all dolled up and no Bucky. You checked your phone for any signs of calls, text messages or voicemail, but your notifications were dry. You frowned.

“I was informed that Mister Barnes would meet you at the restaurant,” Shea said.

You turned and stepped off the platform, “Then I should get going.”

She nodded, “Trevor has been assigned to drive and assist you in any matter necessary. He will also serve as your protection.”

You nodded meekly, already feeling like this was gonna be a terrible night.


Trevor opened the door for you. You thanked him and stared in awe at the restaurant. The sun was just beginning to go down, casting a golden hue on the reflective glass.

“I’ll be a phone call away if you need me, Miss Y/N,” Trevor said.

You nodded and walked up to the hostess who smiled at you. You forced a smile onto your face, “Barnes, table for 2.”

“Follow me,” She turned and led you to a lonely table at the edge of the restaurant. It was secluded from the other tables. “Will they be accompanying you later on?”

“Yes,” You replied and sat down. “I hope.” You mumbled the last words under your breath.

She nodded, “Would you like something to get you started?”

“Glass of water,” You said.

She left you at the table, you checked your phone once again. No new messages. You huffed and attempted to fill your head with happy thoughts. He’ll be here, you told yourself, he’d never miss out on a date. And even if he wasn’t going to come, he’d shoot you a text. Bucky isn’t the type of stand you up. Right?

After a few minutes, a waiter came back with your glass of water. He gave you a kind smile and asked if you wanted to order your food, you told him you’d wait until Bucky arrived. He nodded and left to attend another table. You picked up your phone and decided to text him.

You: Where are you? I’m at the restaurant

Delivered

You continued to stare at your screen, expecting him to immediately start typing. Instead, you started nervously drinking the water and in no time you found yourself reaching the bottom. You called the waiter over.

“Can I get a martini with extra alcohol and extra olives,” You said.

He wrote down the order in his notepad and scurried away. You leaned back and felt like people were staring at you. You shuddered and looked around the restaurant. It was dimly lit. Its main colors were red and gold, bathing the room in a royal elegance. You looked out the window, pedestrians were walking by or trying to hail a cab. You turned away when the waiter came back with your drink. You thanked him and immediately began sipping on the edge of the glass.

Forty minutes passed and you were still alone. You had already guzzled down two drinks. Both were packed with alcohol. You sent him another message. In total there were three others that you had sent.

You: I can see that you’re not coming, I’m leaving. See you tomorrow morning, if you’re even there.

You knew you probably shouldn’t have been that harsh but damn! He didn’t even bother to say he wouldn’t make it. He stood you up and you were disappointed, upset, bitter and a bit dizzy. The hostess came around, she gave you sympathetic smile and you returned a sheepish one.

“I think I’m done,” You muttered. “can I get the tab?”

“It’s already paid for,” She said.

“By who?” You asked.

“A gentleman right over there,” She pointed to a sharply dressed man who flashed you a grin when your eyes met. You turned back to the hostess and thanked her for the service. She told you that your two-piece was beautiful. You messaged Trevor to bring the car around. Just as you did, you received a message from the devil of the hour.

Bucky: doll, I’m so sorry, I wasn’t able to make it to the restaurant, I’ll make it up, I promise.

You left him on read. It was probably petty as hell but you were bitter and it was okay to be a bit petty. You felt humiliated as you walked through the restaurant, feeling like everyone’s eyes were on you. You reached the door of the restaurant when the man who paid for your tab opened it for you.

“I’ll get that,” He smiled. “What’s a girl as beautiful as you doing out alone?”

“Leaving,” You said and walked past him, not having time for this flirty bull.

“Would you like to get some drinks one of these days?” He asked.

“I’m seeing someone,” You replied.

“But you got stood up, right?”

You turned to him, “Yeah, and?”

He shrugged, “Just think you deserve better.”

Trevor got out of the car and escorted you towards it. A smilies head of blonde hair made your head snap in that direction.

“Y/N?” It was Emma. She looked as shocked as you. Her eyes skimmed your figure. You turned and got into the car. Trevor closed the door and quickly drove away from the curve.


You lay in bed for a good hour before rolling off the bed. Your skirt was replaced by a pair sweats but you didn’t bother changing out of the top. You went into the bathroom to freshen up. Last night Bucky came home at around 2 in the morning. You knew this because you told Shea to not let him in your room no matter what. Bucky wanted to go in and see you but Shea said you were resting. She knew that was a lie, you weren’t asleep. You just didn’t want to see him in that moment. You met up with Shea at the bottom of the stairs.

“How did you sleep?” She asked.

“Okay,” You mumbled. “You?”

“I slept well, thank you,” She replied.

Shea followed you outside where the doors opened up to one of the palace’s patios. It overlooked a beautiful fountain and gave a view of the lake that was just in front of the house. You sat on one of the chairs, your hands rested on the glass table. The sun hit your skin, you closed your eyes and took in the heat.

“Good morning, Mister Barnes,” Shea said.

You opened your eyes and raised an eyebrow at Bucky’s figure. His hair was disheveled and it looked like he didn’t sleep all night. He cleared his throat, his eyes never left yours.

“May I speak to Y/N alone?” He told Shea.

She looked at you. Bucky looked a bit agitated that he no longer had a say in what Shea did. She was your handmaid but you saw her as a friend rather than a maid.

“It’s okay, Shea,” You told her and closed your eyes once again.

You listened carefully as Bucky sat down on the chair opposite of you. You breathed in and exhaled, meditating quietly to yourself. Bucky cleared his throat once again and began talking.

“Y/N, I’m so sorry,” He began. “I wish I could’ve called you but the meeting ran longer than expected. We just had to go over some plans in Chicago, I didn’t think we’d take too long.”

“It’s fine, James,” You said. “I understand.” He winced. You almost never called him James. Only Bucky.

He reached out and took your hand, “Let me make it up to you.” You looked at him. “Have you ever been to Los Angeles?”


You looked out of the plane window of Bucky’s private jet. This was your first time in California. It looked amazing from the sky. Bucky had told you to pack a bag for a week and you did. You were excited to travel. Your first big trip was your move from home to New York.

After the jet landed Bucky escorted you onto solid ground. You were a bit taken aback by the humid, very sticky heat. It didn’t feel good and you were beginning to regret wearing a black shirt. You practically attracted the heat. Two black SUV Cadillacs were already waiting. Four men stood guard. One stepped forward.

“Welcome back, Mister Barnes,” He said.

“Good to be back, Eric” Bucky replied. “This is Y/N, my beautiful girlfriend.”

You smiled and shook hands with him, “Nice to meet you.”

The car door was opened ad you climbed inside, Bucky followed. The car door was closed and Eric got into the driver’s seat and turned on the ignition.

“Where to, boss?” He asked.

“The house,” Bucky replied.


You shouldn’t have been surprised when the SUV rolled into the driveway of Bucky’s luxurious Hollywood home. It was something straight out of the movies. It wasn’t as big as his palace on West Egg, but it was equally extravagant. You gawked at the house the towered over you. The architecture was almost ancient. It had tall columns and a roof that seemed to resemble the Athena Parthenos.

“It’s grand!” You exclaimed as you stepped out of the car.

“It’s one of the first houses I ever bought,” He replied.

You turned and had a breathtaking view of the city. The skyscrapers all seemed bunched together in one area. You’ve never been to California. The air smelled of smoke and humidity but it looked beautiful from up here. From the view of wealth.

“Will I get a tour?” You asked.

Bucky smiled at you, “I’ll give you a better tour. C'mon, time for me to make up last night’s event.”
