Pairing: Jughead x Reader

Description: (Y/N) drags Jughead along to the “club with shitty security.”

Warnings: underage drinking

Word count: 2,176

A/N: here is the first “drabble” for this series, which will eventually all build up to a dramatic part 2!! Hope you enjoy, I had so much fun writing this one!


She worked her way through a cheap pack of cigarettes
Hard liquor mixed with a bit of intellect
And all the boys, they were saying they were into it
Such a pretty face, on a pretty neck

“Jesus,” (Y/N) moaned as she flopped onto Jughead’s bed.  “That was a fucking long week.”

“Who knew a writing internship could be this physically exhausting?” Jughead agreed, sitting next to her.  “At least we have the weekend to relax.”

“Yeah,” she nodded, rubbing the white hotel sheets between her fingers.  “How would you like to unwind this weekend, Mr. Jones?”

“Well, Ms. (Y/L/N),” Jughead smiles coyly, “last week I got to choose, and we ended up at Central Park. I believe it’s your turn to choose.”

“Okay,” (Y/N) responded, then fell into silence as she debated what to do.  Jughead watched her with a smile as she bit her lip, eyes furrowed in concentration.

“You’re taking this very seriously,” he noted, laughing at her intense facial expression.  

Her face loosened from its focused state.  “This is serious business, Jug,” she stated as seriously as she could.  “If this ends up being not being relaxing enough, we’ll go back on Monday feeling like absolute shit.  And then it’ll make next week even longer and more exhausting.”

“Okay, okay, I get it,” Jughead raised his hands in mock surrender.  “This is a matter of life and death.”

“Exactly,” (Y/N) said. She retreated back into silence as she contemplated how they would spend their weekend.  “I got it!” she exclaimed after a few minutes of thought.  

Jughead raised an eyebrow. “What are we gonna do?” he asked, a small smirk forming on his face.

(Y/N)’s face exploded into a giant grin.  “We’re gonna go clubbing.”

She’s driving me crazy, but I’m into it, but I’m into it
I’m kind of into it

“Are you serious?” Jughead demanded, eyes widening.  

(Y/N) nodded, not showing any signs of joking around.  “Of course I’m serious.  What better way to unwind than to get some alcohol in your system?”

“What if we get caught?” he questioned.  “(Y/N), this could fuck up our internship.”

If we get caught,” she winked.  “Jug, it’ll be fine.  I went there once before you arrived here.  It’s really not too bad, and there’s no way that anyone will find out.”

“How do you know that?” Jughead pressed.  “How do you know someone from the building won’t be there and see us?  Or maybe a bar fight will break out and the cops will show up, and they’ll notice we’re there.  How do you know it’ll be okay?”

“Jughead Jones,” (Y/N) placed a comforting hand on his shoulder, ending his tangent, “it will be okay. Listen, if you don’t wanna go, that’s fine.  I can go on my own.”  She stood up from the bed and grabbed her phone.  “I’m gonna go get ready.  Just text me if you change your mind.”  She exited his hotel room, leaving Jughead alone with his doubts.

Of course he didn’t want to go clubbing.  He was, after all, an antisocial weirdo who didn’t even like going to clubs.  Putting his internship as risk was just the cherry on top.  But then he started thinking about (Y/N) on her own, and he grew worried about the kind of people who lurk out in the New York streets on Friday nights.  If he wasn’t with her, who knew what could happen.

That, Jughead decided, was worth risking his internship for.  He quickly picked up his phone, and his thumbs tapped out a text.  He read it aloud right before he hit send: “Fuck it, let’s go clubbing.”

It’s getting crazy, I think I’m losing it, I think I’m losing it
Oh, I think she said, “I’m having your baby, it’s none of your business.
I’m having your baby, it’s none of your business (it’s none of your, it’s none of your).
I’m having your baby (hey), it’s none of your business.
I’m having your baby (hey), it’s none of your, it’s none of your.”

“I’m glad you changed your mind.”  (Y/N) stood at his door an hour later, sporting a little black dress.  She looked him up and down, evaluating the clothes he changed into.  “Nice outfit.”

“You as well,” Jughead returned the compliment, slowly closing the door behind him.  “Shall we go?”  He offered his arm to her, which she gladly accepted.  

The New York streets were equally, if not more, busy during the nighttime.  There were crowds of people maneuvering past each other on the sidewalks, some of the tipsier people practically dancing to the song of blaring car horns.  (Y/N)’s steps grew bouncier as they neared the club.

“I know this isn’t your scene,” she whispered to Jughead, “so thank you for coming.”  

Jughead looked down at her, shocked.  “How do you know it’s not my scene?” he asked indignantly.  “Maybe I actually love clubbing.”

(Y/N) burst out into laughter.  “Yeah sure, and maybe I actually love running marathons,” she sarcastically retorted. Then she became serious.  “Listen, Jug, I know you.  You’re my friend.  I figured that it wasn’t just the risk underage drinking imposes on our internship that turned you off from clubbing.  So thank you for coming with me.”

“In my defense,” Jughead stated, “the only reason I came is so that you won’t get mugged.”

“Well thanks for that,” (Y/N) bent her head back with laughter, “but I could totally handle myself.”

“You could not!”

“Yeah I could!” she defended herself.  “I could totally beat up someone.”

“No you wouldn’t,” he scoffed.  “You’re way too weak.  You get tired at a writing internship.”

“Touché.”

It’s New York, baby, always jacked up
Holland Tunnel for a nose, it’s always backed up
When she’s alone, she goes home to a cactus
In a black dress, she’s such an actress

(Y/N) batted her eyelashes at the doubtful bouncer.  

“You two don’t look twenty-one,” he stated, his voice low and gruff.  

“And you don’t look a day over thirty,” she winked at the obviously in-his-forties man.  

He only rolled his eyes. “Look, miss, I don’t know if you’re aware of this, but drinking under the age of twenty-one is illegal,” he sarcastically explained.

“I’m not a ditz,” she snapped.  “Besides, we’re not here to drink, we’re here to dance.”  She glanced over at Jughead and nudged him in the side.  “Right, Jug?”

“Right,” he immediately replied.  Satisfied, (Y/N) put her hands on her hips as she turned to face the bouncer.

“See?” she said. “Just here to dance.”

“Fine,” the bouncer huffed. “But only for this one time. You’re not getting in here again until you both turn twenty-one.”

“Thank you, sir,” (Y/N) cooed, sending him a smile.  She grabbed Jughead’s hand as she led him inside, the music growing louder.  “I told you it’d be fine,” she yelled over the music.

Jughead shook his head. “We almost got caught,” he yelled back.

“But we didn’t!” she reminded him.

“I’m starting to second guess this decision,” he groaned, but still allowed (Y/N) to yank him over to the bar.  “I thought we weren’t getting any alcohol.”

“Oh, sweetie, you believed me?” (Y/N) giggled.  “I came here to get tipsy, Jug.  I’m not stupid, so I’m obviously not gonna order my drinks here at the bar.  Wait for them to start sending waitresses out onto the dance floor.  You just drop some cash on their tray and take a drink.  It’s simple.”

“This is insane!”

(Y/N) laughed loudly and winked.  “But don’t lie, you like it!”

Driving me crazy, but I’m into it, but I’m into it
I’m kind of into it
It’s getting crazy, I think I’m losing it, I think I’m losing it
Oh, I think she said, “I’m having your baby (hey), it’s none of your business.
I’m having your baby (hey), it’s none of your business (it’s none of your, it’s none of your).
I’m having your baby (hey), it’s none of your business.
I’m having your baby (hey), it’s none of your, it’s none of your.”

“Take a shot,” (Y/N) commanded, holding up two shot glasses, one further towards Jughead.  

He furiously shook his head. “No way,” he replied, swatting it away. “It’s bad enough you dragged me here. You’re not getting me drunk.”

“First of all, Jug, you dragged yourself here,” (Y/N) reminded him.  She quickly took her shot.  “And second, lighten up.  If you’re having such a bad time here, then you can either leave, or,” she inched the second shot glass a little closer to him, “you can get tipsy and actually have a good time.”

Jughead rolled his eyes and shook his head again.  “No,” he refused.  “No way.”

“Aw come on, Jug,” she whined, sticking out her lower lip.  “Just one shot?”

Jughead hesitated for a moment, eyeing the shot glass.  “No.”

“You hesitated,” (Y/N) pointed out.

“No I didn’t,” he argued. “I’m not drinking anything except soda and water here, (Y/N).  Think of me as your designated driver.”

“Jughead, we walked here.”

“Then I’m your designated walker,” he shrugged.  “You and I both know you’ll be too drunk to walk properly.”

“One shot is barely gonna get you tipsy,” she countered, still holding the glass out towards him. “Come on, Jug, let loose.  Have a bit of fun.”

“I am plenty fun when I’m sober,” he defended himself.  

(Y/N) rolled her eyes. “Sure you are.”

“You know what? Fine.”  Jughead snatched the shot glass out of (Y/N)’s hand, ignoring the growing smirk on her face.  “Just one shot, though.”  He quickly took the shot and handed the empty glass back to (Y/N).  “Happy?”

(Y/N) laughed as she walked towards the dance floor, “Very!”

She sits beside me like a silhouette
Hard candy dripping on me ‘til my feet are wet
And now she’s all over me, it’s like I paid for it
It’s like I paid for it, I’m gonna pay for this

Two hours into the night, (Y/N) was drunkenly dancing with strangers.  She, with her magical powers of persuasion, managed to convince Jughead to have a few drinks.  He wasn’t nearly as drunk as (Y/N) was, but he was definitely tipsier than he expected. However tipsy he was, though, there was no way (Y/N) would be able to drag Jughead onto the dance floor.

He watched from the sidelines as she danced with some guy who was definitely older than her.  She, in her joyously drunken state, didn’t seem to mind.  His hands were on her waist, and Jughead watched as they slowly inched down towards her ass.

“Hey!” he yelled, storming onto the dance floor.  (Y/N) and the man’s heads snapped to look at him.  “Hands off of her, buddy.”  The guy rolled his eyes as he held up his hands in mock-surrender.

“Whatever, dude,” he scoffed as he walked off.  

(Y/N) grinned at Jughead, causing him to send her a confused glance.  “You’re on the dancefloor,” she noted.

Jughead rolled his eyes. “Only to protect you.”

“How sweet,” she cooed, grabbing his hand.  “Since you’re here, let’s dance.”  

Jughead tried to pull her in the opposite direction.  “Let’s not.”

“Aw come on, Jug,” she pouted, too drunk to resist his tugs.  “You haven’t danced with me all night.”

Jughead glanced at the exit, and then he turned to face a moping (Y/N).  He rolled his eyes as he sighed, “Fine, but only one song and then we’re leaving.”

(Y/N)’s grin returned as she led him to the dance floor.  “It’s a deal.”

It’s none of your, it’s none of your
“I’m having your baby (hey), it’s none of your business.”
“I’m having your baby (hey), it’s none of your business” (it’s none of your, it’s none of your)
“I’m having your baby (hey), it’s none of your business”
“I’m having your baby, it’s none of your business” (it’s none of your, it’s none of your)

“Come on, (Y/N), we’re almost there,” Jughead had his arm wrapped around her waist, her arm slung around his shoulders.  “I thought you’d be able to hold your alcohol better than that.”

“Maybe I just like it when you hold me like this,” (Y/N) flirtatiously whispered with a smirk.  Jughead ignored the butterflies in his stomach as he continued to trudge towards the hotel.

“Just a little bit further,” he muttered, practically dragging (Y/N) along next to him.  When they reached the hotel, they both stumbled into the elevator.  Jughead kept his arm firmly wrapped around her waist until they stood in front of her door.  “Can you make it into your room alright?” Jughead jokingly asked, but there was a bit of concern behind it.

“I’ll be fine, thank you, Jug,” (Y/N) laughed as she unwrapped her arm from around his shoulders. She walked into her room in a perfectly sober manner, causing Jughead to question if she really meant it when she said she liked it when he wrapped his arm around her waist.  Right before she shut her door, she winked at him, leaving a flabbergasted Jughead standing alone in the hotel hallway.

When you originally pulled the invitation from your mailbox you thought it had been yet another wedding invitation from one of your college friends. The elaborate gold writing on the black envelope, wrapped in actual lace. It was easy to assume from its elegance that it would be something like that.

major-trouble  asked:

You need to tell that story immediately.

The Colin Mochrie story? Gladly. This is a good story.

So I go to this college, and it can best be described as a little weird. It desperately wants to be Cambridge, but it’s not Cambridge, so it takes out its frustration with not being Cambridge on weird collective mockeries of Cambridge stuff. So far so good.

One of these weird mockeries is the debate club.

It’s hard to even properly call the Literary Institute a debate club - it is a club, and it does debates, but the debates are 100% stand-up comedy in a parliamentary format and the other half is bullshit pantomiming. For instance, every year at matriculation, the club drunkenly rushes the stage, interrupts the ceremony, and calls everyone in the audience a horse’s ass (occasionally while quoting Dune). It also puts on a yearly event called ‘Tuck-Ins’, in which people in the dorms can sign up (or sign their friends up) to have the entire LIT burst into their room, give them bedtime snacks, give them bedtime beer, sing some bedtime songs, and tell them a bedtime story. Except, the LIT never does anything seriously, so the bedtime song was always Barrett’s Privateers and the bedtime story was almost always something we called ‘The Rat Story’. Let me tell you about the Rat Story.

The Rat Story was a piece of… literature… that a LIT member dragged out of the dregs of the internet many years ago. Nobody knows where it came from, and my efforts to find it again were unsuccessful, but good lord, it was bad. It was a page-and-a-half-long Hermione/Wormtail (rat form) smut fic and it was awful. So awful. I’m cringing just thinking about it. It’s the worst thing I’ve ever read, and at this point I basically know it by heart. We read it aloud, from the poorly worded introduction to its horrible closing line (AND HE SCAMPERED AWAY WET! STUNNED! AND THRILLED!) dozens of times in a single night to unsuspecting students. It was an experience.

Now you might be wondering how Colin Mochrie fits into this.

So, one of the other things my college does powerfully and often is pretension. We are the most pretentious college you will ever see, and our college clubs are proof positive of this. Every year, various college clubs send out dozens of official-sounding letters inviting our various favourite well-known-people to attend our meagre college events (I, as president of the James Bond Society, personally invited Barack Obama, Sean Connery, and the Queen to our AGM). However, this year the Comedy Club was riding particularly high, and it sent out quasi-sincere invitations to speak to a variety of Canadian comedians.

And Colin Mochrie showed up, one fateful Tuck-Ins night.

He gave a talk, which was very good, but noticed as the talk finished that many students were rushing away to something in an awful hurry. We explained that it was the night of Tuck Ins, an important and sacred college tradition and that

We would be delighted if he would join us.

And that, my friends, is the story of how I found myself crammed in a dorm room with 20 other people, listening to Colin Mochrie describe Peter Pettigrew’s rat boner to a couple of second years who had no idea what they were getting into.

pctter  asked:

your pierced!harry art got me going on and on about this headcanon i saw and it was as if you captured it perfectly, i'm a huge fan on the idea that harry is a tattoo artist and also does/has a lot of piercings.. and in comes draco malfoy wanting a tattoo that covers his dark mark, but then later on coming back for more and more until he has a beautiful sleeve of stick and poke tattoos done by his crush aka harry

I can not believe how long it took me to answer this one omg I’m sorry ;;

absolutely can see this happening

Draco finally giving up his attempts to remove the mark and deciding rather to have it covered up - so in he struts to the tattoo parlour he’d been eyeing for some time and definitely not bc of the hot guy whom he occasionally sees having a coffee/smoking in front of the shop when Draco takes the more scenic route to his work

turns out the guy is in fact Potter of all people and before Draco can implode/disapparate/have a mental and physical meltdown, of course Potter sees him bc that’s just his luck. On the other hand, Potter seems just as appalled/amused to see Draco judging by the whole spectrum of colours that briefly passes his face (and also makes him look like a fucked up chameleon, Draco nearly feels sorry for him)

only this Potter must have been lifting his motorbike at least, has jewellery in places where Draco thinks they must be in way of all comfortable life and also to his utter disbelief has a haircut

upon Draco’s inquiry Potter scrunches up his face in a way that means bad news, clearly Draco’s share of luck in life had been spent before he was 10 years old 

apparently black magic markings can’t be tattooed over as they will bleed through any coverup, also will look blast-ended skrewt level of hideous, to quote Potter

Draco must have briefly shown An Emotion because Potter immediately (and to Draco’s horror almost sympathetically) suggests he could still tattoo around it and make something new out of it

Draco debates if his pride should be injured that Potter pretends he wants to help him, but ultimately concludes that he’s out of fucks to give and just wants the mark gone or changed yolo

He shows up for the first session and it’s not even awkward, Draco is ticklish and snappy when Potter deliberately presses the needle a bit harder into his skin. Draco has to keep his mark contained with a stasis charm as well so its magic won’t interfere with the other tattoo’s as Potter inks his arm

they are both tired after, but the tattoo’s starting to look pretty and Draco has to admit he’s looking forward to the next sitting for more than tattooing reasons

after the third session Draco notices Harry is freestyling around the originally agreed upon design, but it still looks great so he doesn’t say a thing

after the fifth session it’s starting to look like Harry’s going for a whole sleeve, so Draco asks him out for a Quidditch match. the tattoo is beautiful, but Draco’d prefer to keep it on his forearm only, thank you very much

Draco would however enjoy having more of the designs in different parts of his skin so he comes back. he absolutely doesn’t imagine the slightly louder exhale of  breath held back when he takes off his shirt

three more tattoos and a few coffees/quidditch matches later Draco concludes Harry’s tongue piercing is in fact a thing to delight in.

Inconclusive

“Hi! Can you write one where you and Jax recently broke up and one day you see Jax taking Ima to his dorm at a club party and you go home and later try to move on from him, but Jax finds out then gets jealous and tries to win you back? I’m sorry if it’s too long. It’s okay if you don’t want to write it! Thank you!”

“This is a bad idea, Chibs.” you warn, pulling at your black lace crop top, a pair of leather shorts showing off your shapely legs. Chibs takes a final drag from his cigarette, dropping it on the floor and putting it out with his boot.

“He misses you, lass, and I can tell you miss him.” You can’t deny his words, these past two weeks being the hardest ones of your life. “You look amazing, sweetheart. If he doesn’t take you home, I sure will.”

Smiling, you gently bump your shoulder with the Scot’s, thanking him silently. “Alright, I’ll take your word for it.”

“Thatta’ girl. Come on, let’s get you a drink.” Chibs throws his arm around your shoulders, leading you up the lot and into the clubhouse, party in full swing. You smile at the croweaters that catch your eye on the way in, them returning the smile and waving kindly at you.

While Chibs gets you and him a drink, you scan the room, not sure how to feel when you don’t spot your ex boyfriend. Tig grins when he sees you, pushing the lady off his lap and walking over to you, throwing his arms around you. “If it isn’t my favourite girl.”

“Hi, Tiggy. Sorry I haven’t been around, everything is a bit of a mess right now.” you explain, his eyes slightly glassy as he watches you, the smell of whisky lingering heavily on him. You’ve always gotten on well with the other MC members, the older ones and younger ones all treating you like family.

“Don’t sweat it, doll, just glad to see you.” He places a sloppy kiss on your cheek, before going back to his woman of the night, sadness covering you as you realise how much you miss this club. The atmosphere, the people, the family. You knew that if you didn’t get this shit sorted with Jax, you’d probably never have it again.

“Here ya are, love. Get that down ya.” You take the beer from Chibs, taking a few swigs, the cold liquid fizzy as it passes down your throat.

You’re listening to Chibs flirt with some croweater when your gaze is pulled to the other side of the room, Jax entering from the apartments. It’s always been the same with him, a magnetic pull that somehow tells you when he’s around. It’s surreal, but he must feel it too, his eyes instantly breathing you in, surprise evident on his face.

You just stare at him, not knowing how he’s going to react. Is he going to be pissed that you’re here? Glad that you’ve come back for him? Upset?

Your questions are quickly answered, Ima surfacing from the same place Jax did, her hands pulling at her shirt, that famous fucking smirk on her face.

Her arms slip around his waist, him being pulled out of his trance. She leans up, whispering into his ear, his eyes remaining on you the whole time. Your heart feels like it’s literally breaking, regret written all over your ex lovers face as you crumble in front of him. He doesn’t correct it though, letting Ima pull his face to hers, her lips claiming his in a messy fashion.

“I think I’m gonna be sick.” you whisper, slamming your half drunken beer on the bar and storming out, leaving a very confused Chibs by himself. He looks across the room as you leave, noticing the very reason for your upset. Shaking his head at his younger brother, he turns his back on him, letting him know just how he feels without even saying a word.

It’s been three months since that dreaded day. The day you lost the last shred of hope you had left for your broken relationship, for the broken man you left behind.

“You ready to go, babe?” Liam calls, his voice travelling up the stairs. You had to move on, you deserve to at least try to be happy, even if deep down you know you’re aiming for a unreachable goal.

“Two minutes!” you respond, throwing your phone and lipstick into your bag. You’d met Liam about two months ago, a sweet boy who asked for your number at your work place. You said yes, met up for lunch one day and hit it off, and you’d been dating ever since. Things were pretty serious between the two of you, but throwing yourself in the deep end seems like the quickest way to get rid of the outlaw biker who refuses leave your mind.

Leaving the bedroom, you jog down the stairs, meeting your boyfriend at the bottom. You were about to go to meet some of Liam’s friends, the four of you going on a double date to the new diner in town. If someone would’ve told you a few months back that you’d be going on double dates and spending time with a completely different set of people, you never would’ve believed it.

“I’m just gonna fill up before we go get Tyler and Abby.” Liam turns into the gas station, pulling up at an available pump and stepping out to fill up the car. “You okay to go pay?”

You nod, grabbing the bills from Liam’s hand and undoing your seat belt, heading inside the store. Once you’ve paid for the fuel, you turn around, slamming straight into a hard chest.

“Sorry, love-” You look up, smiling shyly at the man, shock on his face once he realises who you are. “Jesus, (Y/N). If this isn’t fate, I don’t know what is.”

“It’s nice to see you too, Chibby.” You reply, letting the Scots man wrap you up in his arms, the familiar feeling making your heart clench. You pull back, your common sense kicking in. “Wait, is he with you?”

Before he can reply, the bell above the shop door signaling that someone has just walked in. You hear his voice before you see his face, a thousand and one emotions running through you. “Tig just called, he’s just been to-”

Jax finally reaches the two of you, his voice dying in his throat as he sees who his brother is standing with. His mouth opens and shuts as he stares at you, completely caught off guard.

“Hey, Jax.” you say calmly, hoping that if you act like you’re unaffected, it’ll convince the two men in front of you, even if you can’t convince yourself. “It’s good to see you.”

“Yeah, it’s good to see you too.” He smiles at you, your knees just as weak as they were the day you first caught a glimpse of that smile, the smile that could bring you so much light, even on your darkest of days.

“You alright, (Y/N)?” You scold yourself for forgetting about your company, your boyfriend now making his way over to the three of you in concern. Once he reaches you, he stands by your side, slipping his arm around your waist, claiming his property like some kind of animal.

“Yeah, I’m good.” you respond, part of you wanting to rip Liam’s arm from around you, the expression on Jax’s face one of defeat, heartbreak. The same look you wore just months ago. “Pass my love on to everyone. See you around.”

You leave too quickly to receive a response, your partner trailing behind you, your mental state not feeling up to answering the pile of questions you’re bound to be asked once you get in the car.

You look back at the lost biker in the store, his eyes locked on yours as he watches you walk away from him, again. Only this time, he knows he has to bring you back to him, no matter what it takes.

You sigh in content as you sink into the bubbles, music playing lowly in the background as you take a well earned bath.

Today has been a long day, or at least it feels like it has. After bumping into pieces of your past life, the life you were trying to move on from, you had to deal with a relentless Liam, who wanted to know what your connection was to the murderous bikers in town. This then led to the two of you having a full blown argument. You’d jumped out of the car about thirty minutes out of town and refused to get back in, walking all the way back home.

You massage your temples as you soak, silently begging for your head to stop pounding, the pain making you feel physically sick. All you wanted was five minutes of peace from your overactive brain.

You feel like screaming when you hear the door knock loudly from downstairs, closing your eyes and deciding to ignore whatever company had decided to bother you.

After about fifteen seconds, you hear another series of knocks, more urgent this time. Cursing under your breath, you pull yourself out of the soapy water, quickly wrapping a towel around your body and heading downstairs, ready to release your wrath on whoever was behind the door.

Yanking it open, you see the last person you expect to be at your house. “Jax?”

He moves his sights up and down your body, you wishing you would’ve grabbed your dressing gown rather than a towel that barely reaches midthigh. Once he meets you eyes, you raise your eyebrows in question. “Is everything okay?”

“No, it’s not.” he sighs, running his fingers through his undone locks. “Can I come in? Just give me five minutes. Please.”

Going against your better judgement, you hesitate, pulling the door open widely and letting him step inside. He smiles thankfully at you, a smile that doesn’t quite reach his eyes, before he walks inside.

“What are you doing here, Jackson?” you ask stiffly, wanting the man in front of you to know that you’re not going to take any shit. You’re not the same woman you were three months ago, and he can’t just turn up at your place and expect everything to be okay.

“I miss you, (Y/N).” he confesses, your eyes going as big as saucers as you debate whether you even heard him right. “I made the biggest mistake of my life letting you go, and watching you walk away from me today-”

“Are you serious right now?” You watch as he swallow nervously, enjoying his discomfort. He looks down at the floor, sighing and shrugging his shoulders, like he knew that this was how you’d react.

“You didn’t seem to have a problem with me walking away from you when you told me I wasn’t strong enough for this life.“ you spit, all your pent up anger slowly making its way to the surface. “Didn’t care the second time when you humiliated me in front of the club by fucking that whore!”

“Babe, please just let me-” He knows better than to try and make some bullshit excuse, his sentence stopping once he sees the rage on your face.

“It wasn’t me walking away that got to you yesterday,” you seethe, “it was the fact that I’ve moved on. Found somebody beyond the one and only Jax Teller.”

He stand silent, his eyes heavy with unshed tears as you unload the pain and suffering you’ve had to hold in. You shake your head at him in disbelief, chuckling humourlessly. “You let me go, Jax. You broke my heart, and that’s all on you.”

Silent years slip down your cheeks as you hold your towel close to your chest, the fluffy material moving between your fingers and acting as some sort of security blanket, stopping you from completely falling apart.

“I know I don’t deserve you, (Y/N). I know it, hell, everybody knows it.” he says timidly, breaking the tense silence. He sniffs as you look at the floor, your tears falling as you refuse to meet his gaze. “But you’re the only girl I’ve ever loved, the only girl I will ever love, and I hope that means something to you.”

Your bottom lip quivers as you try to hold in your sobs, the ache in his words chipping at your ice cold exterior, bit by bit. His white trainers step into your view, his figure so close you can smell his intoxicating scent. Just one whiff of him makes you want to forget everything and throw yourself in his arms. But that would be naive.

“I pushed you away, because I don’t want to see you end up like everybody else I love. Broken or dead.” He grabs your face in his large, rough hands, the image of him blurry as you try to blink away your tears, clear your view. “But without you, I see no end to this, (Y/N), no reason to carry on, to fight.”

His thumbs gently caress your skin, your body feeling more alive than it has in months. “I know it’s selfish, I’m a selfish man, but you’re the only thing that I’m certain about in this world.”

You feel like the air has been released back into your lungs when he locks his lips with yours, his hands fiercely cradling your face as you come alive under his touch. You’ve never felt something so passionate, so raw , in your life, his tongue slipping past your lips and exploring the place he hasn’t been allowed to go for months.

You’re both breathless as he pulls away, your heart begging you to join your lips back with his and never break apart. He presses his mouth against your forehead lovingly, one of your favourite things that he does, before he begrudgingly let’s you go, moving towards your front door.

“I’ll always love you, (Y/N). You know where to find me if you feel the same.”

To everyone’s relief, debate club was cancelled that evening. Thomas and Alex had been unsure of how to proceed; would they continue to fight each other, or learn to work together? And Laf and Herc were particularly concerned about how Alex would handle the presence of John and Aaron in the debate room. So, it was to everyone’s immense gratitude that Mr. Adams was absent and had forgotten to enlist a stand-in for their club.

Alex had been the first to show up at the room, and, upon reading the hastily scrawled note announcing its cancellation on the door, he decided to wait for Thomas to arrive.

When Thomas did show up, he approached his soulmate with confusion. “What’s going on?”

“Mr. Adams has gone AWOL,” Alex laughed, and Thomas grinned in relief, stepping toward his soulmate and putting his hands on his waist.

Y/n was smart, witty, creative, and sexy; and she knew it too. Thats’s why Harry is deeply confused when he came home to their shared apartment and heard her sobs coming from their bedroom. He heard her belittling herself saying, “Your fat, and a failure, Y/n.” It broke Harry’s heart to hear his girlfriend say those things about herself.

But he didn’t go in there to console her. He was sometimes awkward and didn’t know how to properly assess the situation. So, he sat in the living room and began writing an article for journalism class.

Harry was so enthralled in his work that he didn’t even notice that it was 7:30 p.M and he had yet to see his girlfriend. Then flashbacks from earlier in the evening entered his mind.

He wanted to help her, he really did, but he didn’t know how to. He was unsure of what to say. He was scared to death that if he said anything to offend her, she would start World War Three.

But he was also scared that if he didn’t say anything, she would feel worse. He didn’t want that. His goal is to always make her feel beautiful, even if society tells her that she isn’t.

So he sighs and decides to check in on her. He opens the door and quietly curses when it creaks a little too loud. He could tell that she was sleeping because all of the lights that she had hanging around their bedroom were turned off, and the 10 decorative pillows she had on their bed were on the floor.

Mornings at Hogwarts

Ravenclaw Girls: hair always pulled up in fancy braids because they all do each others hair in the morning. They have mini study sessions before breakfast, curtains open, morning light streaming over books and notes. Eventually they maybe go to breakfast, or someone grabs food so everyone can keep studying. They nibble on toast and tea and fruit. Ussually studying turns into good natured debates or even just philosophical musing. Finally they head to class.

Gryffindor girls: the ones that like to be up early wake up the ones that don’t. There is a lot of fake fighting as they drag their friends out of bed. Its straight into sneakers and running shorts. They head for the grounds and run a few miles as the sun gets up. They run as long as they can, encouraging each other. They get back in time for breakfeast. Tired and sweaty they fill up on eggs and ham, maybe orange juice but usually water. They make it back to the common room and all jump into the showers, laughing. There is no insecurity. They dress with speed, hair pulled up in pony tails. Finally they head to class.

Slytherin girls: everyone gets up early on school days. They lay out mats on the common room floor. They go through push-ups, lunges, squats…. The workout is short but intense. Their muscles ache in the best way. They head to the bathroom, and shower and dress. They have perfected the messy bun. They do their makeup together. They don’t leave for breakfeast until everyone is ready, they leave the common room looking flawless and head to the great hall. They eat together and talk about ideas. The stay in the dinning hall as long as possible, enjoying the food and company. Finally they head to class.

Hufflpuffs girls: they get up leisurely but still early. They do yoga in the mornings. If its plenty warm they go outside, but if its not they stay in the common room, fireplaces blazing, furniture pushed up against the walls. The yoga is relaxed but everyone gets a good workout. They skip showers and dress for classes. They go to the great hall in groups. They eat cereal and hot cocoa. After eating they either hangout in the halls or visit the slytherin table until its time to leave. Finally they go to class.

As my fist connected with the punching bag I felt a sense of relief. I tried not to envision Bucky’s face over and over, but the truth was – I had moved from heartbreak to anger after his behavior with Steve. My hands ached slightly as I continued my work.

“You’re probably going to regret not taping those up,” Nat’s voice floated quietly from behind me. I sighed heavily. Could no one in this fucking tower leave me alone for two seconds? Running away was becoming a much more desirable solution to my problems by the minute.

“What do you want, Nat?” I asked evenly as I continued to maneuver around the punching bag.

“To talk,” she responded quietly.

I steadied the bag with my hands as I laughed. “Everyone in this fucking tower seems to want to talk to me today, and you know what? I’m just not in a very talkative mood if I’m going to be completely honest. And why the fuck would you think I would want to talk to you?” I responded angrily as I turned towards her.

“I’m sorry,” she said clearly and loudly. The response disarmed me for a moment – I wasn’t planning on this being the conversation we were going to have.

“Sorry for what?” I stuttered back as I flexed my aching fingers.

“For what I said about Barnes…. For what I said about you. I was completely out of line.”

“It seemed like you didn’t care at the time,” I responded bitterly. I wasn’t ready to kiss and make up with anyone – especially her.

“I was… I was cruel and I’m so sorry. I was hurt by what he did, and I was angry at you which was unfair, but Y/N… he… Bucky loves you,” she responded sincerely as she walked towards me. Her last words hit me so heavily that I flinched at the sound of them.

“Did he put you up to this? Or are you just someone else that is trying to speak on his behalf when he could obviously not give a damn?” I asked bitterly as I crossed my arms in front of me.

“It’s your name,” she whispered.

“What?”

“It’s your name he calls out in his sleep. Every night since he’s gotten back.”

I bit my bottom lip nervously at this. “Have they been bad?” I asked – my tone deflating with my anger.

“The worst I’ve seen in years,” she added as she sighed. “Look…. Barnes – he may have trouble telling you… but it’s clear that he’s terrified to lose you.”

“Thanks,” I muttered bitterly as I turned on my heel and headed for the showers.


The rest of the day was luckily uneventful for the most part. I had promised Wanda that I would take her shopping and she had held me to that promise – cornering me as soon as I had exited the shower. For the most part it was a happy distraction from an otherwise miserable day until she forced me to go into Victoria’s Secret.

“Y/N, come on. Surely Barnes is a lingerie man?” Wanda asked as she quirked an eyebrow up in question.

I laughed nervously. Bucky and I had only had sex once before everything fell apart. I had no idea what kind of “man” he was nor did I really care to think about it at the moment. “I don’t really know Wanda… I just…”

“Oh come on – we’re here. You might as well look,” she urged. I sighed internally. Why had I agreed to even come in the first place? In the end it was at least better than awkwardly staring at Bucky through the gaping hole in the wall of my bedroom.

“Fine,” I muttered bitterly as I snatched the black lingerie set out of Wanda’s hands and stomped towards the dressing room.


As the elevator doors opened my nostrils were filled with the smell of something delicious cooking. Wanda had dragged me around at least half of the city throughout the day. My stomach growled at the smell. I was ready to eat and sleep.

“Hey!” Sam called to us from the couch in the common room. “You guys have fun?”

“Lots!” Wanda exclaimed as she walked quickly over to the couch to show Sam everything she had found – of course he would feign interest just for her. Sam had always had a soft spot for Wanda. I was determined to try to quickly get to my room to deposit my own bags – especially the one holding the lingerie that Wanda had demanded I buy.

“What about you, Y/N?” Sam called over. At the mention of my name Bucky’s head peeked from around the corner leading to the kitchen – his eyes immediately zoning in on the pink striped bag. He may have been a man out of time, but he sure as hell was a man and knew immediately what the bag contained. His faced became clouded with confusion as his eyes met mine. “Y/N?” Sam asked again loudly – making me jump. I immediately blushed and caught a glimmer of humor in Bucky’s eyes as I turned to Sam.

“Yeah it was fun,” I muttered as I quickly made my way back to my room.


When I rejoined everyone they were making their way to the dining room. 

“What’s for dinner? It smells amazing,” I asked Sam.

“Dunno – Barnes cooked it,” he shrugged. This peaked my interest – typically Bucky was exempt from making meals unless he volunteered, which he never did.

As we walked into the dinning room my breath hitched in my throat. He had made the meal he had prepared on our first date – complete with homemade breadsticks. I couldn’t help the small smile that spread across my face. As I took in the room my eyes finally found Bucky’s the corners of which crinkled subtly. It was clear by the look on his face that he had done this for me. What Bucky failed at with words he excelled in by actions. We all sat around the table and quickly set to forking food onto our plates. I sat next to Sam and Steve again, but Bucky sat directly in front of me –always keeping his eyes trained on me to assess my reactions. Everything about the meal was wonderful and for the first time since my arrival I felt carefree.

“Y/N – Barnes, we’re keeping you off this mission. Everyone leaves tomorrow morning so try not to break anything else,” Tony said sardonically as he looked at Bucky. At this announcement I almost choked on my wine.

“Everyone?” I asked.

“Yes everyone,” Tony replied matter-of-factly.

“Can I inquire as to why Bucky and I are the only two people that aren’t needed on this mission?” I asked as I tried to keep the panic out of my voice.

Tony shrugged at this. “Just see it as being able to spend some quality time together. Also concerning the wall— perhaps we should just remove it since you two are… you know,” Tony quirked an eyebrow at this. This time I did choke – causing Bucky to look at me in surprise. This was obviously Tony’s way of telling us to fix our shit because he wasn’t going to deal with it anymore. “Anyways – what is everyone up for tonight? Other than watching The Hangover,” he added as Sam opened his mouth to speak.

“Maybe we could watch Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind?” Bucky asked as he looked at me. Sam immediately moaned at the suggestion and I elbowed him in the ribs.

“Come on Sam. It’s my favorite movie and we haven’t watched it in forever!” I protested.

“Okay fine!” He whined in response.

“Well that’s settled then,” Tony announced as he rose from the table.


I sat on the couch waiting for Bucky to turn up before we started the movie. I felt like the day had made a dramatic shift for me. Each of Bucky’s actions had been carefully calculated to show how much he cared without crossing a line. I kept reminding myself that I still needed to be cautious. It seemed like every time I let myself have a tender moment with him something happened to further the hurt he had caused, but I couldn’t shake the feeling that something was different. Maybe it was the meal or him offering up my favorite movie to the group even though its story made him uncomfortable. Maybe it was hearing what he told Steve as they argued this morning…. or maybe it was Nat’s apology and revelation about the return of Bucky’s nightmares.

“You’re going to chew that thing off,” Bucky remarked as he looked at me with an amused grin. I jumped at the sound of his voice – I had been lost in thought waging my internal debate as I chewed on my bottom lip. He chuckled softly to himself before handing me my favorite blanket. As he settled down beside me I spread the blanket over both of us. He didn’t put his arm around me this time— rather settling for placing his hand near my own. As the movie started Bucky’s fingers curled lightly around my own causing me to wince. “What’s wrong?” he whispered.

“It’s nothing,” I grimaced as I mentally kicked myself for not taping my hands before practice. Bucky gently pulled my hand from under the blanket and examined it closely. My knuckles were certainly bruised. After shooting me a disapproving look he returned both of our hands back under the blanket. His hand took mine and began to expertly and gently massage each knuckle. I found his touch was still as intoxicating as the first time he had laced his fingers with mine.

Suddenly the movie paused and I looked around confused. Everyone was getting up to leave except for the two of us. “Where are you—” I began to ask but Tony cut me off.

“We all have to be up in the early morning hours. We’re going to call it a night, but you two should continue,” he said as a small smile formed on his face. “Goodnight,” he added with a wave before strolling out of the room. Everyone else said their goodnights and made their way to their rooms leaving just Bucky and myself.

“This feels like a set up,” I snorted indignantly as I stretched out on the couch. Bucky chuckled quietly at this. The tension between us was still uneasy, but no longer explosive. “Should we finish the movie?” I asked as I grabbed a pillow that Sam had tossed onto the floor and placed it beside Bucky before laying down. “I know you hate it,” I added.

“I don’t hate it, and even if I did – I would do anything to make you happy,” he replied, smiling sadly at me as he brushed the hair from my face. When I looked into his eyes I wanted so badly to forget about the last week, to forget about the things that we had both said and done that caused so much hurt, to kiss him and tell him we would be okay, but I knew if things were to ever improve we would have to have the talk that we had been skirting around – even during our more explosive interactions. And now wasn’t the time.

“Okay then it’s settled,” I responded with a grin as I grabbed the remote from where Tony had left it and hit play to resume the movie.

sparkleywonderful  asked:

Feysand fluff, going to their first play or theatre event (because Feyre has never been in the mortal realm)

I am beautiful. I spun in front of the mirror, admiring my form in the tight black dress. The back was completely open, and the front went up around my neck, almost looking like a collar. My hair was braided to go over my shoulder, and a black diadem was placed on my head. I knew Rhys had a matching one on and was waiting down stairs. I smiled at myself one last time and went to meet him in the sitting room.

He let out a long whistle when i reached the bottom step. I looked at him and my skin lit up slightly, causing me to blush and push the light away. “Feyre darling, do you see something you like?” He smirked. He was his usual all black get up,with of course the matching crown. But the way he was smiling, the look of pure happiness in his face, made me want to shine as bright as the stars. “Shut up,” I laughed, “Where are we going anyway?”

He had been doing something behind my back for awhile, and of course it drove me crazy and made me think the worst. But every night he would hold me close and tell me how much he loves me and that he promised I would know soon enough. This morning, he simply said I would stop worrying about him disappearing after going on our date tonight. 

I insisted on not wearing the diadem, it felt strange walking around Velaris dressed as High Lady of the Night Court, but he insisted I look my best and proudly walk the streets as High Lady. I only let him get away with it because he was so excited about tonight.

“Lets go!” he cheered, linking elbows with me and pulled me to the starry streets.

***

We mostly walked in silence. He was smiling brightly and would occasionally kiss the top of my head. Was I going mad? I would look up at him, and he would just smile back. What the hell? Did he honestly not notice that no one was on the streets? Every so often someone would walk out of their shops and wave to us, or someone would look around the corner of a building and hide.

“Rhys seriously whats-” “We’re here.” He interrupted. I looked ahead and my jaw dropped. The theater. I’ve always wanted to come here. But it was quiet. The lights were off. “Is there even a performance tonight?” I asked. Maybe he thought there was one tonight and he was wrong. That still wouldn’t explain why he was missing. “Yes, Feyre I’m not stupid.” he laughed. “Debatable.” I whispered under my breath. He chuckled and took my hand, “I’ve been waiting for tonight. My favorite story is being preformed. It’s called Savior! Its based on a legend.” He practically ran inside, pulling me up a flight of stairs. We took a seat in what i assumed was his private box. 

It was so quiet. And dark. I couldn’t feel anyone else in here. I was about to start freaking out when the lights turned on on the stage. I looked to the crowd to see if anyone else was there, but it looked like a dark abyss. I looked at Rhys questioningly. He threw his arm around my shoulders and pulled me close. 

I was about to start considering if he was drunk as I looked back to the stage and froze. The scene was in a snowy forest. It was gloomy and sad. A small girl ran across the stage and stopped in the center. She had on shabby clothes and torn up boots with a bow in hand and a quiver slung around her back. She took out a arrow and notched it, and tried hard to pull it back. She aimed and fired it to the side of the stage, but it didn’t fly, it fell a few feet in front of her. The small girl picked up the arrow, then rubbed her belly. She was hungry.  She walked off the stage.

I took a break from The Big Write-Up and found y'all this wonderful nugget of suspicious rhetoric. Bear with me here, as this is a huge sign of an underlying pattern of white supremacist propaganda. In re-reading that sentence, I sound like I’m wearing a tinfoil hat, but please, read this:

One of the Stormfront (shitbags) “Swarmfront” debate tactics goes thusly:

1. Make a statement, either on its own or in reply to something, that “Saying only white people can be racist is racism.” (Check out how Alt Yellowstone just pulls that out of the air, an odd topic for a National Park.)

2. Wait ten seconds for liberals to reply in droves, insisting you’re mistaken and undereducated. (We are like moths to a flame in this regard.)

3. Entertain them for a bit. Throw in some articles or dictionary entries to stoke the fire. (We’ll likely respond in kind and get even more riled up, and follow the thread more closely and emotionally.)

4. Bring the focus to “their” idea - that due to power dynamics and history, only white people can be racist.

5. Ask some of them - “Are you anti-racist?”

6. Self-styled progressives will jump at the chance to declare, “Yes, of course I’m anti-racist!” (We’ll look at each other smugly.)

7. The Neo-Nazi will draw a “logical” conclusion - “Well, if only whites can be racist, and you’re anti-racist, then you must be anti-white!” (One of their “Mantras” is “Anti-Racist Is Code For Anti-White.” I’ll go into their Mantras more in the big post.)

8. Disengage. The Neo-Nazi has said his piece, and because it’s such an inflammatory topic and white liberals have spent so much time avoiding discussing racism directly, even if 100 of the people following the thread just roll their eyes, a handful will think to themselves, “Oh wait, that’s logical.”

9. The white supremacist egg will hatch in another mind, sending him to their forums for guidance. The circle of shitbag life continues.

Okay. With that in mind, check out the Alt Yellowstone Twitter knocking out steps 1-4 in quick succession.

These accounts that popped up in our fervor to go against SCROTUS are suspect, as they should be. Use your intuition when engaging.

Gemini Compatibility

Most to Least Compatible for Gemini:

Libra

Capricorn

Gemini and Aries:

Aries is a sign that expects nothing but loyalty in a relationship and sometimes Gemini’s can find this difficult. They go into the relationship with good intentions but as an Air sign, faithfulness isn’t something they’re the best at and this can upset Aries and set off their fiery temper which can in turn scare Gemini away and make them distant, confusing and angering Aries even more! This relationship can be like a dog chasing its tail and then squealing in pain when they bite it. Gemini’s require intellectual stimulus to keep them interested and Aries’ need a spark. Gemini’s aren’t the best listeners in the Zodiac and won’t pay much attention to emotional angst and everyday issues which can end up wounding Aries’ ego and annoying them. Aries’ passion and intensity could possibly frighten Gemini and scare them away.

Despite all this, Aries and Gemini have the potential for a very fun and loving relationship. Gemini’s tendency to debate about things can get Aries’ all fired up if it’s not about something serious, thus satisfying Gemini’s need for an intellectual debate and Aries’ need to be passionate and argue about something. Gemini’s and Aries’ both despise boredom with promises a very exciting and exhilarating relationship. Gemini’s are always evolving and changing which is good news to Aries’ who finds it hard to settle. This is a relationship that both sides can learn from. Gemini can show Aries’ the beauty of the mind and communication and Aries’ can show Gemini how passion can say things that words can’t. Neither are very fond of sharing emotions so there will be mutual empathy and understanding there when both are opening up. As problematic as this pairing is, it is capable of reaching a comfortable state of excitement and common ground, a lot of work is needed though.

Gemini and Taurus:

Taurus and Gemini are generally not a very compatible pairing, mainly because Earth and Air signs don’t mix very well, but there are also characteristics exclusive to these signs as to why they’re not compatible. Taurus is quite a jealous lover, preferring to have their partner to themselves and getting quite upset if they feel their partner is straying whereas Gemini hates to be tied down by someone, they’re known as the sign who have trouble with staying faithful and this is a huge no-no for Taurus. Taurus’ safe and secure nature isn’t exciting or challenging enough for Gemini who is always full of new ideas and goals. Gemini always needs new things to keep them busy and Taurus might not be able to keep up, preferring the comfort of home and security. Gemini, being an impulsive liar can end up hurting and manipulating Taurus without noticing it, causing Taurus to build their wall and dig up their hatchet.

However, like with every pairing, this one has a lot of potential. Taurus has a love of the arts which can spark a real intellectual stimulation in Gemini which is what they really need, it might even bring out their creative side and encourage them to produce new ideas. You need quite a lot of patience to be able to put up with a Gemini, not particularly in a bad way, it’s just they’re constantly jumping from one thing to another. Luckily, Taurus has more than enough patience to tolerate this as long as Gemini is willing to meet some of their needs too. Both signs are insensitive to an extent so there’s mutual understanding when it comes to comforting and emotions etc. which can benefit especially Gemini. Taurus’ seem to lack imagination and creativity but when in partnership with Gemini, Taurus can be exposed to new ideas and may find interests they never knew they had. Both signs are quite humorous so a good friendship can make a good foundation. If Gemini can be careful with Taurus’ emotions and if Taurus allows Gemini to have their space, this pairing can work.

Gemini and Gemini:

Same sign pairings have incredibly good fortune in terms with compatibility but sometimes things can get a little stuffy when a sign as well expressed as Gemini is duplicated. For example, Gemini like to feel free in any relationship they have. Depending on their Moon or Venus signs, in this relationship, one partner will be more likely to stray than the other. This isn’t an intentional thing but can be very upsetting. Gemini’s like to argue, whether it’s friendly debate or a serious conflict, this can lead to things getting pretty heated. Gemini’s like to talk but sometimes tend to zone out when it comes to listening, this can be problematic and hurtful to both partners as no matter how much we cover up our emotions, at the end of the day we all need someone to listen. Not to mention that Gemini is the jester, the trickster of the zodiac and can successfully trick and manipulate others. If this gets out of hand, serious damage could be done.

However like all same sign couples, Gemini’s make for a very understanding and zesty relationship. Gemini’s crave intellect and friendly debate, of which there is an infinite abundance in this relationship. These two will never run out of things to talk or debate about, they will open doors in each other’s mind that they never knew were even there. Witty and intelligent humour will bond these two together and give them reasons to laugh even in their darkest times. Despite their argumentative nature, this couple will be very good at communicating their problems to each other which is a big factor seeing as this is where most couples meet their downfall. Wrong words, miscommunications – these are not things that Geminis are prone to and this can help the relationship grow amazingly. If these two show each other how much they care and show as much loyalty as they can without compromising their own values and morals, this couple have a strong foundation to build their ideas on.

Gemini and Cancer:

Air and Water are tricky mixtures when it comes to relationship pairings. Air can stir water and water can make air heavy and damp. Gemini is very much a carefree, come and go partner whereas Cancer is a very home oriented, committed lover. Cancer needs to feel secure and safe at all times and depending on how dedicated Gemini is, this could be a problem. Gemini’s are the tricksters of the zodiac, they’re like a breeze, you feel their presence but you can’t catch them in your hand. Gemini’s love freedom and will be repelled if they feel in anyway obligated to be 110% dedicated to a person. This isn’t to say that every Gemini is disloyal, it just means that they need their space and if Cancer doesn’t understand this they can get hurt. Cancers like to address their emotions and if Gemini doesn’t accommodate this, it could be incredibly destructive to Cancer’s wellbeing. Both signs are quite manipulative, Cancer with their emotions and Gemini with their words so in this relationship, both partners will have to be able to recognise when they’re not being fair and be able to stop.

However, like all pairings, this relationship can work if both partners are willing to realise their differences and use them to learn from each other. For example, this relationship covers a lot of bases! Cancer is the mother of the zodiac and can provide understanding and emotional intelligence to Gemini who can sometimes neglect their emotional needs by talking them out of existence. Cancer will sense when Gemini is sad or hurting and can show them that it’s ok to feel things and can show them how to heal. Gemini is the communicator of the zodiac and can show Cancer how to communicate their emotions clearly so that it’s less of a puzzle to find out what they want. They can provide Cancer with different perspectives and thought patterns to help them out. Gemini is very artistic and Cancer is very intuitive, together they can produce artworks of all kinds. These two can make for a very character building pair and can last very long with the right amount of work and effort.

Gemini and Leo:

Air and Fire pairings always work well to a certain extent. They make for a very passionate and innovative couple but as with any other pairing, they are not without their faults. Romance and sexuality is very important to Leos, they feel it is the essence of relationships however Geminis, being air signs, rely on an intellectual connection to keep their spark alight. If Gemini can’t find intellectual stimulation in a relationship, they may look for it elsewhere which could make Leo jealous and spark an argument. Leo is “the royal” sign of the Zodiac and may be inclined to sit back in the relationship and let Gemini do most of the work – which Gemini will not be happy about. Both incredibly flirtatious signs however Leo is more inclined to be jealous than Gemini. Elementally speaking, Fire needs Air to exist, but Air does not need Fire. Leo may be the one that falls deeper than Gemini.

However when Air and Fire signs work well together, they work REALLY well! Think of this romance as one between a Monarch (Leo) and their Jester (Gemini). Gemini is blessed with a golden tongue and can flatter and entertain Leo as much as their heart desires, Leo’s amusement and attention is in itself a reward for Gemini. This pairing is likely to become a socialite type of romance, the type that would host dinner parties, or parties in general together. Gemini challenges Leo on an intellectual level and Leo always rises to the challenge. Leo likes to admire thing, and luckily Gemini has an abundance of qualities for Leo to enjoy. Geminis are exceptionally creative, especially in their words. Leos are natural born performers as well as creative in their actions which can appeal to Geminis as it can complement their own talents perfectly. If the two partners in this pairing can learn to put equal effort and respect their differences and their boundaries, this relationship can be one neither will forget.

Gemini and Virgo:

Sadly, this couple is definitely not one of the most compatible, it’s on the other end of the scale I’m afraid. For Virgo, stability, routine and organisation are key in relationships, that’s just about everything that Gemini may find restricting and heavy. Gemini needs freedom to explore what the world has to offer, regardless of how spontaneous or unplanned these things may be and that can really scare Virgo. Archetypically speaking, Virgo is much like the parent, and Gemini is much like the child of the Zodiac. Mature, practical Virgo may feel responsible for childlike, unpredictable Gemini which after a while, may strain Virgo. A lot of the time it will be Virgo who is looking after and maintaining the wellbeing of the relationship, even though it may come to them like second nature, it is not very healthy. Virgo’s detailed oriented nature may make Gemini feel scrutinised and generally, they haven’t got much in common, nor have they got enough differences to make it interesting.

However no pairing is ever impossible and with work this relationship can definitely last. Geminis are very creative and can communicate their ideas well, their Virgo partner can provide a solid foundation for them to build their ideas upon and can provide them with depth and practicality. Virgos have an awful habit of biting off more than they can chew and they end up becoming swamped in one situation or another. With Gemini as their partner they can learn that it’s ok to take time out to relax and heal themselves which is very important for their wellbeing. Intellect will most likely be the focal point in this relationship as both partners crave it. They tend to have the same type witty, sarcastic of humour also, meaning that conversation rarely runs dry. Fights can be handled very maturely and efficiently seeing as both signs are ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication. If Virgo loosens the reins and Gemini steps up to their responsibilities in the relationship they can most definitely be good for each other.

Gemini and Libra:

Air signs tend to amazingly together, as most same element signs do. Personally I believe that Gemini and Libra are near perfect for each other. They do of course, have their downfall. In most relationships, there’s always one person who tends to fall deeper than the other and in this case, that person is mostly likely the Libra. Librans love to love. They require a bit more emotion than Gemini in order to feel satisfied in the relationship and this can sometimes make Gemini feel uncomfortable. Gemini’s detached attitude may come across as untrustworthy to Libra and could hurt them. Although air signs like a friendly debate, Gemini sometimes tends to take it too far and it turns into an argument, this can upset Libra and make them compromise themselves to restore harmony. They’d both rather brush their problems under the carpet than to solve them and this can build up into one big problem. Deep relationships between these two can be hard to come by.

However these two are incredibly compatible, a meeting of the minds comes with this pairing and they both value that greatly. Both signs are very intellectual meaning they can really sit down and have a conversation. Gemini can really appreciate and admire Libra for their fairness and good judgement and Libra can fall in love with the witty humour that Gemini provides. Whimsy and optimism are the theme of this relationship, it simply never grows stagnant. This element of continual change and growth makes long term relationships less daunting for them (mostly Gemini). When in an argument Geminis communication skills and Libras compelling sense of justice and fairness guarantee that whatever the outcome of the fight is, it was for the best and was mutually agreed on. With compromise on both parts, this couple provide for each other a safe haven of creativity and light heartedness.

Gemini and Scorpio:

Air and Water signs can go very well together because they encourage the relationship to make its decision using both head and heart. However in this pairing, it’s getting Gemini and Scorpio to work together in harmony that’s the trick. Scorpio’s dark and deep essence may make Gemini feel dragged down, causing them to become more aloof in the relationship. Having a Gemini in your life is like a whirlwind, constantly jumping from one thing to the next, this can be quite disruptive and alarming to Scorpio who is very strategic and whose emotions are rightly compared to still, deep waters. Scorpios are quite possessive in their relationships which can repel Gemini. Geminis are naturally flirtatious which could anger Scorpio if it’s not directed at them. Geminis whimsy nature conflicts greatly with Scorpios strategic one. Gemini may not have to emotional capacity to handle Scorpios strong feelings.

However if these two work through their differences, the relationship is definitely achievable and maintainable! Scorpio’s dark passion can both intrigue and frighten Gemini which leads to a lot of exploration on their part. What you see is not what you get with a Scorpio and Gemini will enjoy putting the puzzle together. Scorpio rarely divulges their emotions to others but if they decide to, Gemini will have all the right resources to help Scorpio get their feelings across as accurately as they can. Geminis don’t see much point in holding grudges and if they use their golden communication skills, they can eventually convince unmovable Scorpio to let go of past hurts. While Geminis like to try their hand at everything, Scorpio can help them find their strengths and channel their focus for a smarter move. If they realise their differences and instead of ignoring them, use them for growth, these two are unstoppable.

Gemini and Sagittarius:

These two signs are opposites and like with any opposite signs, it can either go amazingly well or horrifically wrong. Like I’ve said before, Fire and Air go quite well together in terms of passion and friendship. However they can run into as much trouble as any other pairing in the Zodiac. Both signs tend to get carried away with themselves and will need to establish a good foundation if they want a good long term relationship. Whereas Gemini is quite good with words and chooses them wisely, Sagittarius sometimes comes across quite blunt and a poor choice of words could upset Gemini. Sagittarians can be quite opinionated and are stubborn when people question that, but that’s what Gemini does in order to get a view of multiple perspectives. Both signs are quite competitive in arguments and this can lead to it getting serious. Unless Gemini and Sagittarius have a strong common interest, this relationship can lose its spark and die out relatively quickly.

Should this relationship go well however, it’ll be quite rewarding. Both of these signs love to experience and learn new things and are constantly on a quest for new things to do. Since this is so important to both of them it creates a bond between the two when in a relationship. This is the relationship that will never grow old since they are constantly trying new things and finding out more about each other in the process. This make a long term commitment a lot less daunting for the both of them. Sagittarians need freedom, physically speaking whereas Gemini need that freedom in an intellectual form. Both partners let each other have the freedom they need as they know how important it is. Gemini is the thinker of the couple, who comes up with ideas while Sagittarius is the philosopher, who expands on those ideas. If they can combat their differences and use them beneficially, Sagittarius and Gemini can be life-long partners.

Gemini and Capricorn:

Air and Earth signs are incredibly tricky to get right and require an awful lot of work. Air dries Earth out and leaves it unfertile. Earth makes the Air heavy. For this pairing to work at all, it requires a very strong connection to build upon. Both partners must be determined to make it work or it could fall apart. Much like Virgo, Capricorn is very practical and realistic which Gemini can feel dragged down by. These two signs have very different way of doing things. Gemini likes to take short cuts and easy options as long as they get them to where they want to be. Capricorn on the other hand likes to be thorough and make sure that everything is done properly so they can say they’ve achieved their goal wholeheartedly. Geminis impulsiveness can scare Capricorn and make them build walls, walls that Gemini might not be bothered to break depending on how involved in the relationship they are. Emotions will also be quite tricky to master as Geminis never dwell on them and Capricorns internalize them.

However if these two are completely in love and will do what it takes to make it work, this relationship can be achieved and with the joint ambition of these two signs, it’s definitely doable. Capricorn likes to have control in order to get things done right but they also give Gemini enough space to do them, so Gemini has no problem letting Capricorn take the lead. Since these two are so unlike each other their own qualities seem amplified which makes it easier to understand each other’s needs. Although Capricorns silently deal with their own problems, they’re not the best at communicating them to others which may lead to a row if there is any miscommunication. Gemini can help Capricorn say what they feel. Gemini whizzes through life, not taking times to really appreciate things, Capricorn can help teach Gemini to slow down and smell the roses. If they really try with each other and do their best not to give up, these two can be very successful together in life in general.

Gemini and Aquarius:

Same element signs as I’ve said before are almost always the most compatible for each other as they share many qualities, however sometimes the differences between them can be quite problematic. Aquarius is a fixed sign and so can get stubborn when others are not cooperating for them. Gemini doesn’t like this very much as they’re mutable and they drift and flow rather than getting caught up on one thing. Aquarius may not give Gemini enough room to breathe if they get caught up in the relationship rather than just going with it. Aquarius likes to be in charge and if they don’t allow Gemini any space or freedom this could push them away big time. Neither of these signs pay much attention to their emotions and this can end up being a problem if they go too long without voicing their feelings. Although they have a lot of intellectual stimulation from each other, real passion is quite hard to come by as this pairing is more of a meeting of the minds. However even though there might not be much passion, how much this affects the relationship really depends on the partners.

This pairing is generally a very compatible one as both signs here crave and provide intellectual stimulation. Aquarius’ rebellious streak inspires and excites Gemini and their ideas. Aquarius’ need to be different, and they need that difference to be noticed. Gemini admires Aquarius’ individuality and provides the attention that Aquarius seeks. Both signs are very good at communicating to each other so fights rarely occur. These two like to spend time talking and debating, expanding and building on each other’s ideas and theories. If they have the right mind set these two can be very productive in terms of making these ideas more than ideas. Where Aquarius inspires Gemini, Gemini amuses Aquarius with their witty, intelligent sense of humour. When these partners practice equality and free will in their relationship, it’s an incredibly mindful one.

Gemini and Pisces:

Probably the most compatible Air and Water pairings, these two share a lot of qualities for signs that aren’t of the same element, and although Water supposedly dampens Air, and Air stirs Water, some believe that in this match, it’s beneficial. However communication sometimes gets messy here despite Gemini’s talent. Pisces’ are known as the martyr of the Zodiac and will suffer in silence unless someone asks them what’s wrong. Gemini might not notice anything wrong as Pisces’ are also quite good at making it seem like nothing’s wrong, much like Scorpio, their emotions run deep. The more comfortable they get with each other, the more likely Gemini is to notice that Pisces sometimes like to wallow in negativity, not all the time, but sometimes it’s necessary for regeneration. Gemini may feel awkward with this seeing as they themselves aren’t in touch with their emotions. On top of this both signs tend to be quite drifty, and as loyal as Pisces is, they always like to flirt with different possibilities, if there’s no strong attraction these two could float apart easily.

However this pairing as I said is highly compatible and can bring abundance to both partners’ lives. Both Pisces and Gemini have seemingly endless creativity that comes from different places. Pisces’ creativity comes mostly from their intuition, a lot of their emotions inspire the things they do whereas Gemini’s creativity comes from thought, they can take something mundane, think about it for a while and bring out the beauty and wonder from it. Gemini’s communication skills do not go to waste in this relationship either. As emotionally intelligent as Pisces are, they sometimes have trouble getting the right words out to describe how they’re feeling, Gemini can help Pisces with this. Gemini’s ideas can sometimes get too big for some people to handle but Pisces, who can understand these ideas on a deeper level encourages Gemini to think as big as they can. Despite Gemini not really expressing their emotions, Pisces knows when there’s something wrong and somehow knows how to heal Gemini without them even noticing. With the right amount of compassion and attraction, these two are a very compatible couple.

A Bit Complicated

It was an ordinary day in the Lucky Pumpkin Tavern and Paula the bartender was serving up some of her usual costumers with their favourite drinks, asking how their days went. Peter the blacksmith made progress on the lord’s daughter’s new sword. Tefira the seamstress is considering proposing to her girlfriend. And Little Appie just turned 18 and was having his first real alcoholic drink. It was a fun day, Paula thought fondly.

It was getting close to sundown, everybody already left and Paula was about to close down, but not before one last costumer entered the tavern. Denira the adventurer stomped through the front doors and nearly collapsed onto the counter, her heavy golden armour clanking against the wood as she did.

“Hard day, Denira?” she asked the weary elven woman. “I like your new armour. How did you get it?”

“It’s a long story, Paula.” Denira sat up, her face seeming like she’s been through hell. “It was a heck of an adventure.”

Aries and Aries:

Normally signs of the same element go together very well and even though this does apply to fire signs, they’re probably one of the most dangerous elements to put together. Fire and fire in general creates a lot of heat and passion without even having to think of the specific signs. This can be a good thing as long as they stay in control of it. Without control, this relationship could unintentionally hurt both involved, and even further, those around them. Aries, as the first sign of the zodiac likes to be dominant and this can spark rivalry in some aspect of the relationship and one or both of them could get burned. Since both of the partners are quick to anger (and even quicker to calm down) this could potentially be an on-off relationship. It’s not unheard of for this pairing to have a once of fling so they’ll need to make sure the flame doesn’t burn too bright and is then gone as quick as it came, they need to pace themselves.

On the plus side Aries and Aries relationships can be incredibly passionate and steamy. Feelings for each other will be fiery and irresistible. They match each other’s fire which will keep each other in their place, and are great at motivating each other to do well in things. The love between these two will be feverish and exhilarating and there’ll never be a dull moment. Much to both of their comfort, things will be straightforward and dealt with head on in this relationship, neither can stand mind games and “elephant in the room” situations so when problems arise, these two will be quick to find a solution. Both signs love a challenge just as much as they love to challenge each other, this can be a very positive aspect because it can prevent them from getting stuck in a rut. With the right amount of control and steady pacing in this relationship, Aries and Aries can have a fun and exhilarating experience but must try not to burn each other out.

Aries and Taurus:

Probably one of the most problematic pairings in the Zodiac, Aries and Taurus don’t have many differences but the ones they do have can be quite vital in the relationship. Aries in an incredibly independent sign, and likes to enjoy fun, light hearted relationships with the person they love whereas Taurus has a tendency to emotionally invest in a relationship with someone they really love.  Aries being a fiery, passionate sign can be very carefree with their relationships, often doing before thinking and this can really upset Taurus who tends to get quite jealous or possessive when they feel their relationship is threatened but this is only because they put so much thought and care into the relationship and they’ll be damned if something is going to mess it up. Taurus’ temper can match that of an Aries, sometimes even outdo it but as Aries’ let go of arguments as quickly as they arise, Taurus is one to hold onto that for a long time and can withdraw from their partner if trust and stability is broken. Aries love to win, and when they do they tend to rub their partners nose in it but when they lose, they pretend it never happened, this can anger Taurus since it’s not fair to them.

However with the right level of understanding, this pairing can create a comfortable yet exciting atmosphere. Taurus is the most passionate of the earth signs which appeals to Aries nature. Taurus is a very sensual sign, appreciating things like good food and massages regardless of how simple or it might be. They know just how to pamper Aries, which they enjoy as much an Aries does. They’re very good at handling Aries’ temper since they’re much slower to anger, it builds up over time, which is good for Aries because it means someone is keeping a firm grip and isn’t going to blow up back in their face right away. Aries can bring Taurus out of their comfort zone – for better or for worse- and should pay attention to Taurus’ limits if they want to avoid upsetting their partner greatly – Taurus’ need stability and nothing would break their heart more than their own partner to break it for them. This pairing needs a lot of work and a lot of communication, they need to learn to stay calm and patient but potentially this pairing could be very rewarding.

Aries and Gemini:

Aries is a sign that expects nothing but loyalty in a relationship and sometimes Gemini’s can find this difficult. They go into the relationship with good intentions but as an Air sign, faithfulness isn’t something they’re the best at and this can upset Aries and set off their fiery temper which can in turn scare Gemini away and make them distant, confusing and angering Aries even more! This relationship can be like a dog chasing its tail and then squealing in pain when they bite it. Gemini’s require intellectual stimulus to keep them interested and Aries’ need a spark. Gemini’s aren’t the best listeners in the Zodiac and won’t pay much attention to emotional angst and everyday issues which can end up wounding Aries’ ego and annoying them. Aries’ passion and intensity could possibly frighten Gemini and scare them away.

Despite all this, Aries and Gemini have the potential for a very fun and loving relationship. Gemini’s tendency to debate about things can get Aries’ all fired up if it’s not about something serious, thus satisfying Gemini’s need for an intellectual debate and Aries’ need to be passionate and argue about something. Gemini’s and Aries’ both despise boredom with promises a very exciting and exhilarating relationship. Gemini’s are always evolving and changing which is good news to Aries’ who finds it hard to settle. This is a relationship that both sides can learn from. Gemini can show Aries’ the beauty of the mind and communication and Aries’ can show Gemini how passion can say things that words can’t. Neither are very fond of sharing emotions so there will be mutual empathy and understanding there when both are opening up. As problematic as this pairing is, it is capable of reaching a comfortable state of excitement and common ground, a lot of work is needed though.

Aries and Cancer:

Aries and Cancer tend to be a lot of people’s “problematic favourites” both being the extremities of their elements, they can either work very well or not very well.   Aries’ natural recklessness and disregard for the rules can upset and distress Cancer, sending them into melancholy and stress overload. Aries’ doesn’t intend to hurt people’s feelings, it’s just they’re very “do first, think later” kind of people. Over time, Cancer’s sensitivity could possibly irritate and repel Aries, making them more distant. When vulnerable, Cancers become quite jealous which can annoy Aries’ (even though they can match if not outdo that jealousy). Aries’ are notorious for their tendency to lash out intensely and then suddenly go back to normal which can frighten and confuse Cancer, making them become withdrawn and cautious.

This pairing has its perks however. Although Aries’ don’t show it, they can be subject to deep seated insecurities which they don’t like to spend any time thinking about, Cancer’s being the natural mother and carer of the Zodiac can look after and heal Aries’ without even noticing it. They can hold Aries’ down when it’s needed, making sure they don’t hurt themselves or anyone else in their daily pursuit. Cancer can make Aries feel at home in any situation which can be a new experience for this restless sign. Aries can spice Cancer’s life up with their infinite passion and vitality. They can bring Cancer out of their shell and help them get over little insecurities with a practical approach. This pairing has potential to be filled with passion and vibrant emotions when treated with care, a relationship of healing in different was, however, if either or both of them lose the rein, it can become a big emotional mess, hurting and hindering both involved.

Aries and Leo:

Aries and Leo is possibly one of the most playful and exciting pairings you can get – also quite a dangerous one. Both being vibrant fire signs, their fire can burn bright and fast. Both partners prefer to be dominant and must have things their way which can lead to them bumping heads an awful lot. Neither like to admit they’re wrong (Leos because of their pride, Aries’ because they’re headstrong) which can mean their fights can last ridiculously long.  Leos desire attention and affection which can sometimes come across as clingy to carefree Aries. Any bad criticism from Aries has to potential to hurt Leo’s vibrant yet somewhat sensitive pride. Leo’s playful and flirtatious nature towards people can make Aries feel threatened causing them to lash out, which can in turn anger Leo, so on and so forth. Aries’ impulsiveness can sometimes throw Leo who likes to have a routine. Without knowing it, Leos’ can to exploit other’s weakness’, in this case, Aries’ deep seated insecurities.

As tricky as fire signs can be together, they can be incredibly good for each other. Both signs enjoy an exciting and upbeat relationship leading to an abundance of passion in the relationship. The signs’ need for dominance guarantees a fun and interesting relationship, exploring possibilities in the hope of compromise. Aries’ can teach Leo to be less caring of what others thing meaning their pride won’t be as easy to break and Leo can teach Aries’ to not deal with things from an aggressive point of view as well as self-love and pride. Both signs like constructive challenges which means the relationship is very rarely idle. As fire signs, Leo and Aries’ can understand each other on an emotional level very well and are naturally able to comfort one and other. The passion between the pairing is indescribable, full of fiery love and playfulness. If these signs can work together and compromise when it comes to dominance and their tempers, this pairing has potential to be 10/10/

Aries and Virgo:

Aries and Virgo tend to be an incredibly difficult match, which is why I so very seldom hear of them. The reason for this is their extreme differences. Aries’ impulsiveness can mess with Virgo’s head and even worse- their emotions. Virgo’s are very systematic signs and they like to keep their emotions in a little labelled drawer with 50 locks on it and if Aries’ does something to upset that system it can turn in to (even more of) a nervous wreck. Because of their analytical minds, Virgos tend to be very critical towards their partners – even with the best intentions, and this can annoy Aries very much and low key wound their ego. Virgos are also the most grounded of the signs and although this can be beneficial, when in a relationship with Aries, it can cause a lot of conflict. Aries is a very freedom loving, impulsive sign that can feel very held back and restrained by Virgo’s attempt to ground them which can cause Aries to either lash out or drift completely.

Like any pairing, no matter how problematic it is, there are upsides. Aries and Virgo share a similar humour, both very witty and sarcastic, giving them a humour based foundation. If Virgo controls the grip they have on Aries fairly and properly, they can keep Aries grounded without being too overbearing or restraining, which means Aries won’t get themselves into many situations but at the same time isn’t being completely suffocated.  Because Aries’ are very self-assured they’re less dependent on their partner which is a big weight off Virgo’s shoulders while they maintain order in the relationship. Virgo’s own tendency to work things out on their own means that Aries’ don’t feel weighed down. Aries being a sign that likes to experience everything in life can push Virgo towards a more practical approach to self-discovery, helping them come out of their shell a bit and discover things about themselves they wouldn’t have learned otherwise. This relationship requires a lot of effort and compromise but it is possible.

Aries and Libra:

Being opposite of each other in the zodiac, the relationship between these two can either go really well, or horribly wrong. Libras are very idealistic lovers whose standards can put pressure on Aries and cause them to lash out, in turn Aries’ are incredibly impulsive and can mess up Libra’s ideals. Libras, in their determination to make the relationship as harmonious and smooth running as possible, can leave themselves open for manipulation. In fights, Libras will most likely be the first to apologise to restore harmony. Aries might play on this in order to get what they want, over time doing damage to Libra. Librans can be quite critical in pursuit of the perfect partner, this well-intended criticism can wound Aries’ ego and cause them to put up their defences up. Libra, like the other air signs, need intellectual stimulation and although Aries can provide that for them, they are not as passionate about it as Librans.

Libras are natural flirters and to Aries’, this makes them seem fun and inviting. In the early stages of the relationship, passion and romance runs high while Libra plays out their romantic fantasies (however simple they may be) and Aries is running off of pure passion for their new lover. As the relationship goes on, the relationship only becomes more interesting due to Aries’ dislike for boredom and Libra’s everlasting romantic demeanor. Aries, who secretly craves affection and validation is never short of it when in a partnership with Libra who likes to make the relationship as loving and happy as possible. Libra is the sign associated with justice and fairness and makes sure that every relationship they’re involved in is a fair and just as possible. Aries can benefit from this a whole lot – whether they like it or not, it teaches them to be more patient with their lover which can bring them a long way. As with any pairing of opposite signs, this relationship (with some work) can be bountiful and abundant in that each sign’s differences complement each other.

Aries and Scorpio:

Potentially one of the most intense and dangerous relationships in the zodiac, and Aries and Scorpio relationships are like a ride or die. Both signs have incredibly intense energies that can either make or break the relationship. Aries strives to be the dominant partner while Scorpio demands absolute control in the relationship which can lead to major clashes and extensive measures to assert their dominance. Scorpio’s controlling nature can repel Aries and cause them to lash out brashly. This can scare and hurt Scorpio whose defense is their offence, and unleash their legendary sting upon Aries. Aries being the unintentionally reckless sign they are, can accidentally hurt Scorpio who will either kick up a storm or just completely shut off from them. Scorpios have a blunt nature that sometimes Aries can take personally, damaging their ego and adding to any deep seated insecurities. The fights between these signs are incredibly intense, both being very fierce in their anger when hurt. This pairing if not worked through properly, is possibly the most toxic relationship in the zodiac due to the fact neither of them are great with emotions and both have dangerous tempers.

However, if this pairing has the right amount of compromise and understanding of one and other’s differences and set-backs, this pairing can make a very enjoyable and passionate relationship. Scorpio’s powerful libido and Aries’ ever-present underlying passion promise a steamy relationship behind closed doors. This is far from a co-dependent relationship since Aries’ exists in an air of independence, giving Scorpio the space to self-sufficient, just as they strive to be. The intensiveness of the relationship attracts both signs, making them addicted to their partner, resulting in a do or die relationship that leads to a strong commitment on terms they both agree with. A very enjoyable relationship, these signs both have somewhat dark and twisted humors (to a certain degree) which not many other people could understand. Scorpio and Aries relationships bring mystery and intuition together with passion and desire to create a steamy and intriguing experience for those involved as long as they can understand each other’s differences and work around them accordingly.

Aries and Sagittarius:

As any fire pairing, Aries and Sagittarius can be as dangerous as they can be successful. As an intense sign, Aries can repel Sagittarius who is generally very freedom loving and careless. Since Aries is reckless and Sagittarius is quite careless, both signs can end up hurting each other unintentionally. Sagittarius’ tendency to flirt can make Aries’ jealous and shake up their hidden insecurities. Aries’ tend to do first and think later which can result in them doing something to hurt Sagittarius without thinking. Sagittarius’ are always searching for something, the restlessness of this sign can annoy Aries and make them feel like they’re not doing enough for the relationship, when most of the time that isn’t the case. Although Sagittarius’ temper is the least explosive of the fire signs, they use their words as a weapon, making Aries (who is more suited dealing with aggression) vulnerable and somewhat defenseless.

Despite all of this, Aries and Sagittarius are highly compatible when it comes to relationships. Sagittarius’ free spirit and optimism entwined with Aries’ passion and vibrant nature promises a very lifting and enlightening relationship that both signs will thrive in. Since Sagittarius is a very optimistic sign, chances of the relationship lasting are quite high as Sagittarius makes the best of any bad situation. A very straightforward pairing, neither of these signs like to beat around the bush, problems are dealt with head on, progress is made efficiently and mind games are very rare which will contribute to making a strong foundation. Like the other fire pairings, both signs are very independent, giving each other the space they need and working great together as a team ( Sagittarius’ don’t care much for visible dominance so there are no battles for it.) If Aries can keep Sagittarius from getting bored in the relationship and Sagittarius can understand the root of Aries’ action, this pairing can be incredibly harmonious.

Aries and Capricorn:

Fire and Earth signs are quite tricky together, fire being too impulsive for earth and earth being too routine oriented for fire. Aries’ impulsive nature can both irritate and cause anxiety for Capricorn who must know where they stand on things and have some kind of structure in the relationship. Capricorn is known as one of the most mature signs in the zodiac – even in their young age. Aries’ being the first and most youthful sign of the zodiac tends to be intimidated by Capricorn’s maturity and innate wisdom causing them to lash out at times over seemingly small things. Capricorn’s introverted and thoughtful nature can come across as dull and boring to Aries’ who needs stimulation rather than reflection. Capricorn’s are also very ambitious signs, Aries who lives for “the moment” rather than the goal can feel intimidated and maybe even a little patronised. Capricorn needs to be spontaneous every now and then and try not to make Aries’ feel too threatened or belittled.

However this pairing can work surprisingly well if both involved are determined to make it work. Aries’ is the only fire sign Capricorns are compatible and vice versa! Capricorns, no matter how quiet and introverted they may be, give off an energy of self-assurance and confidence in their actions which pulls boisterous Aries’ in like a magnet. Unlike many signs who find Aries’ hard to keep up with, Capricorns know exactly how to handle them, they take no crap from them either, which is good for when an Aries needs to get back in line. The friendship between Aries’ and Capricorns is amazing and like in any relationship, friendship is key in any successful partnership. Capricorns tend to isolate themselves, sometimes without even noticing, because of their pessimistic nature. Aries can help bring Capricorn out of this when they feel it’s becoming unhealthy, thus potentially saving Capricorn from their own thoughts and worries (which is quite important when dating Capricorns). If Capricorn can make sure Aries’ feels valued in the relationship and Aries learns to be patient with Capricorn, this can be an incredible match.

Aries and Aquarius:

This so happens to be quite a contradictory relationship if we’re talking long-term. Aquarius is a very freedom oriented sign. They don’t have a jealous bone in their body and frankly they don’t have much time for people who do which means Aries’ attempts to make their partner jealous as payback for something is a waste and Aquarius finds it petty. Since Aquarius’ don’t care for jealousy, they sometimes tend to stray and expect Aries’ to feel ok with it. This can either anger Aries or make them feel inadequate, either way the outcome will not be pretty. Aquarius being an intellectual sign like the other air signs, needs intellectual stimulation and if Aries cannot provide this, there’s a chance Aquarius will get bored and seek it elsewhere. Because of Aquarius’ aloofness and Aries’ intensity, Aries may feel like the only one putting effort into the relationship which can result in flashes of anger throughout the relationship.

However, treated with the right amount of mutual understanding and compromise, Aries and Aquarius can make for a very fun and eccentric relationship. Both signs love freedom (only to different degrees) and if equality is maintained in the relationship itself, Aquarius can roll with Aries’ dominant nature. When Aries understands Aquarius’ detachment, they can be very thoughtful in that they don’t smother them, like some other signs might. Both signs by man" target=“_blank”>ENJOY the initial chase of the relationship and for Aries, Aquarius may seem unobtainable which only creates more passion and fun in Aries’ pursuit. When Aries’ passion can math Aquarius’ intellect and work together in harmony, the results are euphoric and enlightening. When Aries and Aquarius have mutual understand and respect for their needs, this pairing is near un-stoppable.

Aries and Pisces:

One of the most problematic pairings in the zodiac, not only fire with water, the youngest sign with the oldest. Pisces and Aries are different in many ways and this can either benefit the relationship or hinder it. Aries’ frequent outbursts can scare and hurt Pisces’ to tend to feel things very deeply and take a lot of things to heart. Even if they do not show it, the smallest things (even a badly worded sentence) can haunt Pisces’ feelings for days, and if Aries lashes out often, it can leave Pisces feeling drained over time. As a coping mechanism, Pisces’ tend to zone out a lot, giving them time to regenerate but Aries’ might not be able to comprehend this leading to them getting worried. Aries’ is portrayed as the classic hero, and Pisces the victim, when Pisceans victimise themselves it leaves them open to being taken advantage of. Despite their innocent disposition however, Pisces knows their partner’s weak points, and will not hesitate to play on them for their own gain or survival.

As problematic as this pairing can be, it can be equally beneficial. The youthful sign Aries’ has a lot to gain from Pisces and also a lot to offer. Pisces’ patient, sympathetic and non-condescending nature can help cool Aries down better than perhaps any other sign simply because they have a way of not making people feel patronised (which Aries despises). Pisceans are natural empaths and healers, throughout the relationship they can heal wounds Aries didn’t even know they had. Aries can teach Pisces to stop falling victim to other peoples games, teaching them to say no which can be hard for Pisces. They teach Pisces to stop letting themselves be walked on and will fight for them when threatened. Where Aries brings passion and fire to the relationship, Pisces brings romance and nurturing, combine these attributes together and the love between the two can be both feverish and sobering. Aries enjoys being dominant and Pisces enjoys being dominated which means both of them win. If Pisces learns to stop taking things to heart and Aries is patient with Pisces and their emotions, this pairing can be successful and hold a lot of mutual healing and learning.
