CANCER: you deserve to shine as bright as you possibly can, you deserve to see the stars, and taste galaxies, and love someone who knows what that word means. you deserve so much, much more than i’ll ever be able to give. but i will give it up anyway. no more regrets. dance a lot to loud music, and sleep with your entire body and soul, take care of yourself in the most gentle way you know how. i want you to have fun. go out and do something only mildly reckless. i want you to find stories, to tell, to write, to capture, to paint, to sing half badly at the top of your lungs. you are so lovely. none of these words will ever be enough to tell you how grateful i am that you are here.

AQUARIUS: summers are either chlorine stained hearts or the breath of fresh air in your lungs, and this time around might feel a little bit of both. work with what you have, i don’t know what else to say. but remember you are not poison. yes there is black ink spilling from your pen and sometimes your gushing veins, but it is not a part of hell you have to keep inside of yourself so you don’t infect and destroy and hurt hurt hurt. humans, we’re heaven and hell combined in one animal. and that’s it. you’re only human. nothing more, nothing less. and that’s okay. keep breathing. i know you can take care of yourself, but thing is, you don’t have to. you are not alone.

My exam was a lot harder than I expected but at least it’s over, right!? Now I’m trying to get organized for the school year and file away some old notes. I stumbled upon these bad boys from when I took anatomy and felt a bit nostalgic.
He’s carefully balancing the sandwiches and the two biggest tupperware containers he could find that both had functioning lids when the front door opens and he almost drops everything right there in front of the stupid fountain.
If that’s Derek Hale, he’s definitely not a mountain man.
Everything changes when Derek goes under while surfing, hits his head on a board, and sees a man with a tail swimming away. He wants to know who that was, and what it has to do with Beacon Hills, the one place he never meant to come back to.
You Fall Asleep While Studying - Seventeen reaction
@mariaseemsgood:I need to satisfy my thrist for Seventeen reactions… so how about they come back home to see you sleeping in one of his jumpers while drooling in your text book? (sorry for the cliché, but I love this scenario)
Absolutely loved this scenario, thank you so much for requesting <3 but now my feels hurt Hope you like it! x
He’d be kind of conflicted: should he wake you up and get you to lay down somewhere more comfortable? or should he just leave you there to sleep? You looked so peaceful - no, adorable - with your face literally buried in your textbook, drool pooling between the pages and your cheek, and body swimming in his shirt. Instead, he’d gently pick you up and bring you over to the couch, gently kissing your cheek as you woke up, before gathering some blankets and cuddling you to sleep.
His first thought would be “oh no”; the way you were slumped in your chair, arms crossed so that your head rested on them couldn’t have been comfortable. He’d wake you up and guide you somewhere more comfortable like the couch or a bed, gently wiping the corner of your damp mouth and lightly scolding you for not giving yourself a break, though he found the way you waddled in his oversized sweatshirt and leggings absolutely adorable.
He’d start giggling right away; the way your face was smooshed against your notebook, little snores coming from your mouth, and the sweater he had left out on the bed keeping your body from the cold, it was all too much. He’d walk right over to you and place a gently kiss on your cheek. You’d wake up at the light touch and give him a small smile, to which he’d respond with a hug. “I thought you told me you wouldn’t be studying today,” he’d lightly scold you.
He wouldn’t be all that surprised to see you asleep surrounded by your numerous text and note books, but just because he half expected it didn’t mean he was anymore pleased. Yes, he did find you absolutely adorable with your hair looking a bit like a bird’s nest, the corner of your mouth wet, and his grey turtleneck practically swallowing your body. Still, he told you to take a break for the day and you instead overworked yourself again. He’d take the time to hide all your books before waking you up, forcing you to relax for a bit.
Here are my notes from the reveal stream, with some concluding thoughts at the end. All of this information is available from the Bungie reveal stream, and is not speculation unless marked as such:
In the beginning of Destiny 2, the Last City has fallen. Dominus Ghaul, leader of the Cabal Red Legion, has laid waste to the Tower and to the City itself, and his legions have torn our home apart.
The reveal trailer shows us fighting through the tower in the first campaign mission, called “Homecoming,” in which we battle alongside the Vanguard until Amanda Holliday deposits us atop some kind of Cabal ship, where we attempt to face down the bad guy.
Unfortunately, we fail, and Dominus Ghaul succeeds in deploying some sort of device that places the Traveler in a cage, instantly draining the Guardians of Light, and causing us to lose our powers. We cannot go back to the Tower.
In response, the Vanguard scatters. Ikora has fled to Io out of anger, Zavala is on Titan healing and having an existential crisis - “Are we Guardians even without the Light?”, and Cayde-6, in attempting to play the hero, has gotten himself into trouble on Nessus. Apparently, the Speaker has disappeared. More on these new worlds below.
In the campaign, we will have to track down and collect the Vanguard, as well as fight the new Red Legion enemy, led by Dominus Ghaul. Dominus Ghaul believes that he, based on his past experiences (which were not elaborated upon), is most worthy of the Traveler’s blessing, and does not understand why Humanity was chosen. He has come to Earth to prove his worthiness, and sees humanity as being in his way. He is not a “psychopath” bent on genocide. Luke Smith described him as “Having his stuff together,” and “Like Alan Rickman in Die Hard.”
Destiny 2 is a game about loss, and transitions into an experience about recovery and reclaiming what is ours.
Shown classes remain the same: Hunter, Warlock, and Titan. Nova Bombs, Defender Bubbles, and Golden Guns were shown but not remarked upon. However, new Super abilities were showcased:
Titan Sentinel: A Titan with a voidlight shield that can be used to block damage, thrown at enemies, or used in melee combat. There also appeared to be some new kind of Striker Titan Dash and a different sort of ‘Ice Wall,’ neither of which were discussed.
Hunter Arcstrider: A Hunter with a staff of arclight that focuses on acrobatic melee combat.
Warlock Dawnblade: A Warlock with a sword made of solar light that can be used in melee combat or to fling ranged attacks. Warlocks also appeared to be able to place some sort of buff zone beneath them, one of which “empowered” the player.
These look pretty awesome.
Weapon loadouts have been revamped to give players more flexibility. Weapons are now divided into three categories:
A variety of new weapons were shown. In addition to hand cannons, sniper rifles, shotguns, pulse rifles, and shotguns, we saw:
A type of SMG
Minigun-like machine guns
A type of fast-firing rocket launcher
I assume we will learn more about this in the coming days. It appears that weapons such as hand cannons occupy the kinetic slot, but I would like to see more information about how these slots will work.
Destiny 2 features four playable worlds:
Earth: The European Dead Zone is now the location of Destiny’s largest playable area, and this is the zone where Humanity flees and attempts to rebuild after the Cabal attack. This camp was founded by Hawthorne, who features in the D2 Preorder, and who once left the City to live in the Wilds.
Titan: Titan, Saturn’s largest moon, is covered with a Methane ocean with 40 ft waves, and features a human utopia, a relic of the Golden Age, sinking into ocean. There is no landmass on Titan.
Io: A sulfuric moon of Jupiter, Io is the last place the Traveler touched before it appeared on Earth. Io is a sacred place to the Guardians, and to Warlocks in particular. In the trailer, there appear to be the remnants of some kind of civilization.
Nessus: A centaur, or type of icy minor planet. The Vex have transformed Nessus into a machine world, and it now features native vegetation, large canyons, and plateaus based on tepui, a type of South American highland plateau.
Destiny 2 has revamped the map system. Now, players will be able to use an area map to navigate and discover locations and events. These include:
PatrolsAmbient enoucntersCollectable materialsAdventures*Treasure maps*Public events with treasures*Lost sectors*
*denotes a seemingly new feature
Destiny 2 will emphasize the sense of exploration that players experience. For example, players will be able to discover and unlock secret, hidden dungeons, which will contain both loot and bosses. There appear to be many, many secrets to discover.
Furthermore, there will be more interaction with NPC’s, resulting in numerous side-quests and further adventures.
Destiny 2 features a revamped map system that players will use to uncover and navigate the new areas. Waypoints, such as those corresponding to the activities listed above, will show up on this map. It will also show WHERE and WHEN public events will take place.
In addition, players will no longer have to ‘go to orbit’ to navigate to new locations. The world navigation system will now be usable from anywhere.
Co-operative play was heavily emphasized by all presenters. Bungie attempted to strike a balance between easy matchmaking and ensuring that all players are comfortable with the strangers they are matched with. The notable new features are:
Clans: Clans will no receive official, in-game support. These will offer rosters, tools for fireteam building, custom banners, and shared clan experience and progression. Achievements, whether done solo or in a group, will benefit your clan.
Guided Games: Guided games are a new way for solo players to find a fireteam without joining a clan and while being able to ensure they have a positive experience. Solo players will be able to see a brief summary of clan information, as well as the activity proposed, and will then be able to join the clan for that single activitiy without committing to the clan.
Guided games will open up your party to more players, in case one of your fireteam members must drop out of the activity.
The Crucible has been revamped for 4v4 combat across all game modes. There will also be a new attack/defend mode called “Countdown.” I assume we will learn more in the coming days.
In partnership with Blizzard, Destiny 2 for PC will be available exclusively through Blizzard’s Battle.Net.
“More cinematics than ever.”
There will be a new raid.
There will be new strikes. The strike played at the reveal is called “The Inverted Spire.” You will traverse Red Legion territory to a Vex Stronghold, where you will fight a 3-stage boss.
There will be more quests and story missions
There may (SPECULATION: ENTIRELY UNCONFIRMED) be new vehicles.
There will be “More to do than any game we’ve ever made at Bungie.”
Community, community, community. Destiny 2 was referred to several times by different people as “A world I want to be in, where I can always find people to play with if I want to.” Bungie appears to be focused on making all of D2′s content accessible to more players. This, to me, is a great thing.
Exploration: the words “Open World” were not used, and from the gameplay demo of “Homecoming,” that mission at least appeared quite linear. That’s not to say the rest of the game will be that way, and if the new map system is any indication, we can look forward to a lot more exploration.
I, personally, cannot wait to see the new worlds. It seems like Bungie has done a lot of work to make each location feel unique.
Gameplay-wise, it sounds as though Bungie has learned from D1, and is looking for ways to make D2 more engrossing and meaningful for all kinds of players. If the new strikes have harder, more involved boss fights, it sounds as though we can expect more than the bullet-sponge boss fights that dominated D1.
The revamped weapons system also sounds great, and I can’t wait to hear more about it.
I am unsure about the Crucible being reworked for 4v4. Reference was made to it being “For PvP Players,” although what that means remains to be seen.
Summary: Killian Jones had just been joking when he’d told Emma Swan they were actually married. But in his defense, the doctors hadn’t mentioned that her concussion had given her amnesia. Rating: T Notes: Happy birthday, @lifeinahole27! You are an amazing friend, and I’m so happy to have you in my life! I hope you like this story! Thanks to @optomisticgirl for the beta-read!
Based on the prompt: "You’re my best friend who’s just waking up from a concussion, I played a trick on you and said we were married and you have amnesia … but you just rolled with it and now I don’t know what to do.“
Killian had never been so terrified in his whole life. He’d known something like this would happen eventually, he’d warned her countless times, he’d made sure to have a plan in place. And yet when it finally happened, he felt entirely blindsided and paralyzed with fear.
So being the Food Network addict that I am, I occasionally find myself watching Trisha Yearwood. And right now, the episode I’m watching features her going and getting a skating lesson from the Hockey Team.
So obviously, my brain goes “ZIMBITS AU”, which is only further resolved after Trisha says the following things:
- As you can imagine, growing up in Georgia, I didn’t skate a lot
- (to her friend who’s doing this misadventure with her) I think, as long as we look cute, it doesn’t really matter how good we are
So Bitty has a Food Network show with a vague “southern cooking in new england” theme, and the producers really like to play up the Georgian Fish out of Water angle with the not-actually-cooking segments of the show. So Bitty’s scheduled to do a private skating lesson with Marty and Tater, because the combo of warm and friendly but understated mentor Marty and loud gregarious and enthusiastic rookie (to the NHL - he has a few years in the Russian pros under his belt) Tater will make great television.
So Bitty is making both of them their own thank-you food. Bitty has fun experimenting with Russian pastries for Tater, and of course finds a way to incorporate maple into his apple pie for Marty.
The producers are expecting a lot of hilarious and endeering wobbling on the ice. And they get a lot of great footage of Bitty reacting to wearing hockey gear for the first time “I look like a big blue marshmallow, y'all”, but nobody remembers until Bitty’s on the ice that he was a Junior Regionals Figure Skating Champion.
He glides effortlessly onto the ice, has some fun learning how to handle a hockey stick (cue some ridiculous and just the right amount of off color for basic cable jokes about stick handling)
And of course, Jack Zimmermann, who works harder than god but kind of sucks at acting like a human being in front of cameras, is at the rink to get in some extra practice, and Tater is like “Zimboni! You come and race the tiny baker man!”
And Marty winks at Bitty, who gets the message and starts wobbling and skating like he’s never seen ice in his LIFE, and Jack looks warily at the cameras, but George has been on him to do more public relations stuff and he may as well make a “race” against this tv person part of his warmup.
And Bitty’s all “now, I ain’t no professional skater, Mr. Zimmermann, so you’d better go easy on me!” And then proceeds to SMOKE Jack the second Marty calls GO.
Marty and Tater are doubled over laughing, and the camera guy is circling Jack to get all angles of his utterly dumbfounded expression.
Bitty’s smirking, with his hands on his hips, then says, “do y'all think I could pull off a salchow in all this gear?” And proceeds to pull off a jump in hockey skates and all the gear. Tater, of course insists that Bitty teach him and the footage they get from it is pure gold.
So anyway. After they get off the ice, Bitty cuts up his maple apple pie and Jack decides he might actually be in love.
A/N: This has been sitting in my drafts for a while now sigh and I feel bad for not putting out anything this winter break! This is a somewhat exaggerated version of what is a combination of my friends’ freshman year haha. Man I love college.
College had been a lot harder than you expected and you
struggled, barely able to crawl past the finish line that was the end of
freshman year. As sophomore year came around, new year, new me, you had declared. You were on a mission to bring
your GPA back up. No more spending your nights at some random house,
celebrating a birthday of a person whom you did not know but rather more nights
spent hunched over your computer in some well-lit corner in the library.
Even though you felt invigorated to start the new semester,
all that disappeared by the time Wednesday came around. You’re not sure why
they call the first week, syllabus week when you had homework and quizzes
assigned to you already. By the time it was Thursday, you could only thank god
that you were so close to the weekend.
Sat in your final class for the day, your physics discussion
section, you could only dream of the long shower you were going to take once
you got back to your dorm. The bell rings, and the TA gets up to begin writing
on the board but the distant noises of a person running down the hallway makes
it difficult for you to concentrate. Within seconds, a rather sweaty boy
reaches the doorway, panting as he bows apologetically at the TA before taking
a seat right next to you. The TA waves at him dismissively as he continues to
drone on about the material you learnt in class this week.
“Alright, now you can work in pairs or groups to solve the
worksheet. In 15 minutes, we’ll come back to solve questions 1-3,” your TA
You turn to your right to see that the person next to you
had already formed a group with a few other students and you were too shy to
ask if you could join. You turn to your left to find the sweaty boy silently
working on the problem set. Letting out a light sigh, you begin attempting to
solve the worksheet on your own.
There’s a long overdue silence before the boy seated next to
you turns eagerly towards you and introduces himself. “Hi, I’m Jimin and you
“Y/N,” You smile politely before turning to your worksheet.
He glances over at your worksheet and scoffs. “That’s
“That’s wrong,” He points. “You have to use the first
equation that’s written down on the board.”
You were a nervous wreck, sat across from Baekhyun in a
quiet corner of a random café, nursing your third cup of green tea to help with
the butterflies in your stomach. The air between you both was silent, neither
of you saying anything. Instead the awkwardness was just prolonged, like an
itch that wouldn’t stop no matter how hard you scratched.
Day 1: Throwback Mole Suspicion: I mark Young Justice as a major turning point in my view of my fellow women and girls in media. My first time seeing the front half of Season 1, I assumed that this was being played 100% straight. I thought that we were supposed to empathize with Artemis but that, ultimately, she’d be the mole. I assumed that the conflict with her character was that she honestly did believe she could not overcome what we came to know as her family legacy. I thought that she may have a redemption arc toward the end of the season.
And she did, but it wasn’t the one I was expecting. Realizing that Artemis’s story was about healing and overcoming abuse, neglect, fear, loneliness, and abandonment at various points in her life changed my world. I was and still remain so happy for and proud of her. She found her family, and she healed the ties in her blood family that could be healed and learned to live without the toxic pressure from those that tried to ensnare her. The way I viewed fiction before Artemis - and particularly women in fiction - I fully expected her to be the mole, but she wasn’t and I am so glad she wasn’t.
The surface is full of oportunities, but also very nasty people. Dealing with them on a daily basis while trying to keep her job as a teacher leaves Toriel pretty stressed, but on most nights one or two glasses of wine are enough to help her relax.
Good thing Sans is there to help her when wine is not enough.
AND IT’S DONE! This was a lot harder to make than I expected it to be, my respect for the people who make animatics soared into space after this project.
This is also probably the most suggestive piece of fanwork I’ll ever post in this blog, so enjoy it while it’s hot. Sorry if you expected me to do the full song but naaaaah, I prefer to leave a bit of mystery out to feed the imagination.
Sorry but I gotta post this separate again. Look at his perfect uncomfortable face.
Headcanon context for Object Head Flug:
Blackhat can still feel and partially control the hat (which is part of his body) while Flug is possessing it. He also sees through the eyes in the hat at the same time as his own. When he shape shifts by himself he isn’t affected, but having no control over their angle or perspective totally makes him motion sick.
If Flug puts effort into it he would be able to possess the entirety of Blackhat, if they practised it maybe, cause it would be a tug-of-war-of-will that Blackhat would win. Unless he wants to let Flug do that I guess. But it would be a huge effort for both of them.
Possessing the hat as a head (freely given) is actually a lot easier for Flug, because he doesn’t have to put any energy into animating it against the objects ‘habit’ as the hat already has a habit of shifting.
Flug can influence objects he uses as head going by the objects ‘habits’ or ‘cliche’ of how they normally function or are viewed, and symbolism. The paper bag and goggles combo acts like there is a physical head inside, because in the context/cliche of having a paper bag over your head to hide your face. It’s expected of the object, so he can make it happen. If there were eyes drawn on the bag with sharpie then he could totally animate them to blink and look around, because of the symbolism of eyes. He would also see with them.
Without a head, or a head with ‘eyes’, Flug cannot properly see, but he gets concepts of his environment, and can easily feel around with the vapours without much issue, they have a range of a couple meters when stretched thin. Reading is a bit of a challenge though. Writing would be fine I imagine, if not the neatest.
Similar for a mouth, a symbol for a mouth, or the expectancy for one to be there (paperbag), he can talk when he has no head, but is much clearer and louder to hear if he has something to channel his voice through.
He can make things behave against their cliche/habit/expectation, but it takes a lot more effort, energy and concentration. Also the (much) bigger than a head, or smaller than his basic glowing sphere and object is, the harder it is to use/keep it as a head.
Warning(s): I think there are a few sears, competitiveness
Pairing: Peter Parker x reader
Request: hi! for starters i love your writing! i was wondering if you could do a peter parker x reader where peter is training in the gym and then you also have to go and train and you both have like a competition to see who’s stronger and it get kinda heated?? idk i think it would be fun :) thanks!
A/N: Ahh, thank you so much, it means everything that you like what I write! Anyway, here you go! I had a lot of fun writing this
Y/N was secretly a part of the Avengers. The only person who knew about her part in the squad of heroes and about her alter ego was Tony Stark, who had recruited her after accidentally seeing her without her mask but still in her full costume. The offer was one she couldn’t turn down. She didn’t like hanging out in the tower, or training there as she feared being discovered, so she trained at her favorite gym everyday in order to stay fit for her role. She grabbed her water bottle and her car keys from the kitchen counter.
“Goin’ to the gym! Be back in two hours!” She called over her shoulder as she shut the door behind her. The drive to the gym was quick. Since Y/N spent just about everyday training, she knew all the trainers. She walked into the gym with a small smile on her face. She was just so happy to be there.
“Y/N, what’s up? How did your run feel this morning?” One of the trainers (who went by coaches) asked.
“It felt good. Was hard to get outta bed for it though.” She laughed as she walked towards her usual coach.
“Y/N, hey. Right on time.” Y/N’s usual trainer, Coach Delanie smiled. “Quick problem though. So I accidentally double booked myself today. Do you mind if I trained you and my other client together? He’s around about your age, and he’s got a similar set to yours.”
“Oh yeah, that’s fine. Is he here yet?” Y/N asked.
“No, should be here any minute now though.” She said. As soon as she had spoken the words, in walked one of the hottest guy Y/N had ever seen. He was toned, and had the perfect little curls. A small smile on his face, he greeted one of the coaches.
“There he is. Peter!” Coach Dee called out to the boy. He walked over.
Scenario about Bakusquad make a bet with bakugou if he can make the girl fall in love with him. Bakugou and his new girlfriend actually got along. Bakugou didn't plan to fall in love with her and getting so deep in the relationship. His girlfriend woke up early to get something to eat and overhears the bakusquad talking about the bet. How would Bakugou react for her to finding out? Angst ending please~
Oh, boy, angsty request? Yes, please.
It had started as a bet, though it wasn’t just a bet anymore. He had just wanted his friends to shut up. He was the only one of them that didn’t have a significant other, the bet was that because he was such an aggressive, disagreeable person, he couldn’t make someone fall in love with him. He’d accepted the bet, he was going to make someone fall in love with him, one girl in particular that his friends had decided on. She was alright, he had thought, there were worse people to get stuck with, even for a stupid bet. This was fine. He could do it.
And, he did. While in the process of trying to trick her into falling for him, he had ended up falling head over heels for her instead, a lot harder than he’d expected. It was evident to the rest of the Baku Squad, after they started dating, that Katsuki Bakugou was in deep. Probably deeper than his girlfriend was at that point, and everyone figured that it had turned out for the best.
“Man, I can’t believe it’s already been a month!” Mina said to Denki, Eijiro, and Hanta as they grabbed breakfast in the kitchen.
Katsuki’s girlfriend happened to be coming to the kitchen to eat breakfast, but she stopped when she heard her boyfriend’s friends talking.
“It was just a bet, and he just threw himself head first into it,” Hanta remarked, “Sometimes I wonder if he’s actually that lovey, or if he’s just putting on a good show.”
What were they talking about? A bet? A month? She began to put the pieces together; she and Katsuki had been dating for a month, which meant that what they were talking about was their relationship, and lovey… That had to be Katsuki they were talking about, everyone else in the Baku Squad were approachable friendly people, why would anyone be surprised about any of them but Katsuki being lovey?
“It’s real,” Eijiro insisted, “But, it is kinda crazy to think he went into this thinking he could get away without actually developing feelings for her… Kinda cruel, actually.”
Oh, yeah, they were definitely talking about her and Katsuki.
It’s kinda crazy to think he went into this thinking he could get away without actually developing feelings for her.
Eijiro’s words echoed in her head as they continued to discuss the relationship between her and Katsuki, though she couldn’t hear the rest of it. Of course, if she’d been listening, she would have heard them talking about how happy they were that everything had worked out for the two of them, and that Katsuki actually had someone who loved him, and that he genuinely loved in return. But, it had just been a bet. Their whole relationship was founded on a bet between him and his friends.
“What are you standing there for?” Katsuki asked, seeing his girlfriend paused by the kitchen door.
She took a sharp breath, the sound of his voice bringing her back into the present moment.
“Are you alright?” Katsuki asked, concerned when she didn’t respond, or even turn to look at him, “Babe, is something—”
He reached out and put a hand on her shoulder, but she smacked his hand away and looked up at him, starting to cry.
“You’re an asshole!” She shouted, startling him and the rest of his friends in the kitchen, “You don’t even really like me, do you?!”
“What the fuck are you talking about?” Katsuki asked, his confusion evident on his face, “Of course I like you.”
“Is this some sort of joke to you? My feelings?” She demanded.
“Shit.” Katsuki heard Denki say from inside the kitchen.
“Motherfucker…” Katsuki growled, looking into the kitchen and glaring at his friends.
“I’m taking it by that reaction that I wasn’t supposed to know,” She said quietly, her tone dripping with ache.
“No, I do,” Katsuki replied, turning his attention back to her, his chest feeling tight, “I do like you, now, I really do.”
“Now?!” She asked, “Great, so at some point you were just messing around with me because your friends told you to?!”
Katsuki didn’t know what to say in response to that. Yeah, it had started as a bet, and yeah, he had gone into it having absolutely no feelings for this girl, putting on quite the act to get her attention, but now it was different. Now he adored her, and he really liked being with her. And it was falling apart, all because of his stupid friends, who had been the ones to make him do it in the first place… Except, no one made him do anything, and he knew it. He was the one who had done it, of his own free will, no one had forced him to do it.
“I hate you!” She shouted, snapping Katsuki out of his thoughts.
“Okay.” Katsuki replied blankly, just looking down at her, “That’s fair.”
“Okay? Really? That’s all you have to say?!” She asked, astounded by the glazed over look in his eyes, “Well, thanks for that, Bakugou.”
She smacked her shoulder hard into his arm as she walked past, causing him to let out a groan of pain as she headed to the elevator. She was crying, it was bad, and he had just made it worse. He had no idea what to do. Apologizing wasn’t going to do any good, he thought, so he let her go back up to her room.
“Bakugou, we’re sorry, we didn’t know she was there!” Mina said.
“You just had to talk about that in a place where she could show up at any moment…” Katsuki hissed, his palms starting to smoke, “I don’t want any of you assrags talking to me again. Fuck all of you.”
Katsuki turned and headed towards the elevator to go up to his own room, and his friends watched, all feeling overwhelmed with guilt; they’d just ruined the best thing to ever happen to him.
He didn’t go straight to his room, he stopped by her room to try and get her to talk to him. He wasn’t thinking straight, but he had enough sense in him to at least try to tell her that he was sorry for his friends being idiots. That was sensible, right?
“Babe, open the door.” Katsuki said, pounding on the door, “Look, I’m sorry, can we talk about this?”
“Go away!” She shouted from inside her room.
“I know you’re pissed, but we need to talk about this, because it’s not as simple as you think it is!” Katsuki responded, trying to open the door only to find that it was locked, “Fuck, come on, please open the door!”
“I hate you, go away! You’re the worst thing that’s ever happened to me!” She snapped.
It felt true to her in that moment, but she knew that wasn’t really the truth. She was hurt, she was lashing out.
“I wish that I could never have to see you again!” She yelled, holding tightly onto her pillow.
You’re the worst thing that’s ever happened to me. I wish that I could never have to see you again.
The weight of those words was enormous. Katsuki already had doubts about himself being someone that anyone could ever deal with, but hearing the one person he’d allowed himself to become attached to saying that, though he knew it was perfectly reasonable under the circumstances, absolutely fucking sucked.
“Well, if that’s how you really feel, I guess I’ll go.” Katsuki said, his throat starting to close up a bit and his eyes starting to sting.
His body felt hot and extremely cold at the same time, every movement he took felt unbearably laborious. He began to have trouble breathing, and tears began to force themselves out of his eyes as he reached his room. He threw the door open, dashed inside, kicked the door shut, and then fell onto his floor, breaking down completely in the safety of his own space.
He cried so hard he began to hyperventilate and dry heave, feeling absolutely sick. What the hell was wrong with him, crying like that? His own humiliation at his reaction to the situation made him feel worse, and cry harder. He was beside himself. He cried himself into a fainting episode, blacking out slumped up against the door into his room.
When he came to, he’d missed a bunch of calls from his friends, and several texts from his girlfriend, who was now his ex-girlfriend. After reading through all the texts he’d gotten, starting to cry again after reading what she had sent him, he nearly crushed his phone, he was devastated. His hand were shaking as he dialed his mother’s cell phone number, and as he held the phone to his ear, listening to the dial tone.
“Katsuki? Are you alright?” His mother’s voice greeted him a few seconds later.
“No.” Katsuki answered, his voice breaking.
“What’s wrong, Kid?” She asked, startled to hear him like that.
“I fucked up, Mom.” Katsuki said, having trouble breathing again, “Can you come get me?”
“What did you do?” She asked, “Are you hurt? Did you hurt someone else?”
“Both.” Katsuki answered, “Not physically, anyway, but like…”
He whimpered, and his mom knew. She knew what was wrong.
“I’ll be there in half an hour. Get yourself together enough to get out of the dorm, okay?” She said, “It’s gonna be okay, Katsuki, we’ll talk about it when I get there.”
“Okay…” Katsuki mumbled, trying to stop himself from sounding so stupid.
