hear your heart | Deaf!Cas/Hearing!Dean AU

[1] of [2]

Dean first saw him in a coffee shop. It was a cliche and Dean goddamn knew it. He walked into the place, signed to Sam to ask what he wanted and caught the eye of a guy sitting near to the wall. His blue eyes bore into Dean’s and at first, Dean felt defensive. He and Sam had grown to ignore the stares. It had been so many years since the fire and this life was all that Sam knew. That didn’t stop people from staring at them when they were out. 

Go and grab a seat. I’ll bring this over. Dean signed.

Sam nodded and found a seat not far from Dean. Even now Sam wasn’t keen on being around hearing people on his own. Dean brought their drinks and went to sit down with Sam, all the while noticing that the guy was still staring at him. 

What is it? Sam asked. 

Some guy over there won’t stop staring. It’s like he’s never seen sign language before. Dean signed with a frown. There were millions of deaf people all over the world and yet it still seemed to weird a lot of people out. 

If it makes you feel awkward I can just lip read. Sam signed with a shrug. 

No, I’m not going to stop just to placate some judgemental asshole. Dean signed while he frowned. He’d always been protective of Sam and it had become more and more of a deal over the years. Dean was the elder one, the one to look after his younger brother. He never told Sam that another reason he was so protective was because of Sam’s deafness. Sam never thought of himself as different because he had never known any different. He’d hadn’t even been a year old when the accident claimed his hearing and he had no memory of a life before his lost his hearing.

At the Russian Court || (1/?) T h e  C e r e m o n y  o f  t h e  T s a r ’ s  O a t h 

For the ruling house itself, one extremely important ceremony was the swearing of an oath to the throne by the heir. Paul I established a law of succession which declared the heir - the Tsesarevich - to be age at sixteen. His son Nicholas I published a manifesto by which he made the oath an official state document and ordered its inclusion in the next volume of the Code of Laws to be published : ’ On the ceremonial declaration of the majority of each and every individual belonging to Us, they shall be sworn in the presence of the Sovereign Himself both as a sign of allegiance to the Ruler and to the Fatherland, and equally to observation both of the rights of inheritance and to this family order, and shall affirm this in writing, which oath shall be preserved in the State Archive together with documents belonging to the Family. ’ The oath sworn by the Emperor’s sons had as its purpose the further reinforcement of the autocracy.

The holy rite of oath of His Imperial Highness the Sovereign Heir and Tsesarevich Grand Duke Alexander Nikolaevich (future Alexander II) took place on 22 april (4 may) 1834, Easter Sunday, which gave particular resonance and meaning to this secular state event. The ceremony commenced at 11.30 in the morning with a ‘great appearance’ in which the participants were 'members of the Most Holy Synod, court ranks, notable individuals of both sexes and foreign ministers. Detachments of Life Guards regiments stood with banners in the rooms from the Concert Hall to the Portrait Gallery; the Company of Palace Grenadiers in the Portrait Gallery itself.’ The first part of the ceremony was to oath sworn by the heir to the throne in the Large Church in the Winter Palace. Metropolitan Seraphim and the court clergy greeted the imperial family with a cross and holy water The imperial regalia - sceptre, orb and crown - 'were ceremonially moved on gold brocade cushions carried by the first ranks of the Court from the Diamond Room to the Great Court Church and laid on the table made ready there, to the left of the lectern placed by the Royal Gates for the Life-giving Cross and the Holy Gospels’ Nicholas I himself led his son to the lectern where lay the life-giving Cross and the Gospels. Raising his right hand, Alexander pronounced the oath, 'composed especially for him’. Quoting Peter the Great that he would ’not spare his belly’ for Russia, he swore to observe all the rules of the throne and all the laws of the imperial house. The ceremony was halted by the heir’s tears, after which he was embraced by his parents. Then the heir signed the oath and the Minister of Foreign Affairs Prince Karl Nesselrode took charge of the document, to place it in the state archive. The first part of the ceremony ended with the prayer 'We praise Thee, oh Lord’, a salute of 301 cannon in the Peter and Paul Fortress and the ringing of the bells in all the churches of the capital.

The second part of the ceremony was the swearing of the officer’s oath, which took place in the St George Hall in the Winter Palace before a larger audience than the first. The imperial procession passed between rows of Guards officers towards the St George Hall, where the cadets of various military colleges - future ‘defenders of the fatherland” - were lined up. Generals, dignitaries and the diplomatic corps stood in hierarchical order around the throne. On the two lower steps of the throne were Guards officers holding the regimental standards. In front of the throne stood a lectern with the life-giving cross and the Gospels and the standard of the Don Regiment, of which the heir was commander. To the sounds of he new anthem, God save the Tsar, the Emperor, Empress and Tsesarevich entedred, mounted the throne and greeted the troops. Then Nicholas I led Alexander to ‘the lectern sheltered by the Ataman standard’ and the Tsesarevich ‘swore an oath of allegiance in service to the Sovereign Emperor and the Fatherland’. The troops saluted, the standards were lowered before the throne and the procession back commenced.

Team Leckie Australia-ish AU

  • (It’s not set in Australia, it’s set in Indiana, because there’s no reason for it to be in Australia when you use these boys)
  • (For @malarked because look it’s our boys. On a farm. With cows)
  • Leckie’s uncle is the owner of a small Indiana farm which holds a lot of cattle (cowssss) and some crops and stuff
  • He dies. It’s sad. 
  • Leckie is the one who ends up taking over the farm, since none of his siblings or other relatives are interested in it. Leckie doesn’t mind, however, because, hey, how hard can it be? 
  • He also thinks it’s a great place to write, because it’s going to be quiet and out in the middle of nowhere without that many distractions.
  • (Boy is he wrong)
  • He’s met at the train station by Hoosier in his old rusty pick-up truck. Hoosier is the dude in charge of the cattle, and is basically just such an Indiana farm boy who thinks Leckie just looks like another spoiled city boy (Which he is, hello, it’s Leckie we’re talking about here)
  • The farm is kind of far out in the middle of nowhere, and while it’s supposed to only take an hour or two to drive there, it ends up taking all night.
  • Because the truck breaks and it’s too dark to fix it.
  • And they have to camp out in the back. 
  • Hint: Leckie is not happy, because it’s hard and uncomfortable and Hoosier snores.
  • Hoosier also has a dog, which decides Leckie’s face is a very comfortable place to sleep.

Boyfriend Jun

I am here with the much anticipated 4th installment of the boyfriend series!!! I apologize to anyone who’s been waiting for this part~ (And thank you for not hounding me over it as it’s been so long ^^”) But fear not, because here I am to answer all your fluffy headcanon needs with Boyfriend Jun!! As always, I’m answering in age order and as I feel inspired, so please don’t request the next part~

  • ALRIGHT WELL we all know that Jun is Seventeen’s resident grease ball
  • I can tell you right now that the moment he saw you is the moment he decided to make you his and the moment that he first approached you
  • he exudes confidence - he would’ve had no worries about asking you out at all
  • probably uses terrible pickup lines
  • “Do you believe in love at first sight, or should I walk by again?”
  • “Do you have a map? I got lost in your eyes.”
  • “Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?”
  • things like that basically, and while lines like those would normally make you want to rip your hair from your head strand by strand, somehow, coming from him, you can’t help but to feel drawn in. 
  • Somehow he would’ve gotten you to agree to a date - and it would’ve been full of just as many cheap lines and moves as your first meeting, but again, something about Jun just makes it work.
  • Probably only would’ve gone on two or three dates before he officially asked to go out with you; he’d like your relationship to move fairly quickly as he was confident in the fact that he wanted to be with you
  • Would pride himself in embarrassing you - will do anything and everything that he can to make you flustered because he thinks nothing is cuter than your reaction when you’re feeling shy
  • Like if you come to wake him up or smth and he’s all under the covers he’ll just look you dead in the eyes and go “you know I’m naked under here”
  • and he won’t admit to being clothed until you’ve already flipped out and run to the other side of the room
  • odds are he really is naked tho but he’s a decent man so he won’t get out of bed until you’re out of the room
  • makes innuendos 24/7 and he knows exactly what he’s doing
  • no matter what tactics he has to revert to he has made it his sworn life’s goal to embarrass you as much as humanly possible
  • unless ofc things like that make you uncomfortable in which case the second you told him he would apologize profusely and never do it again bc your comfort is the number one priority to him
  • always tells you that the members said you were cute before you go to hang out with them so that you get all embarrassed the whole time and he doesn’t tell you that it was a joke until you’ve already left
  • c o n s t a n t l y   showering you with compliments, also with the intention of flustering you
  • there’s not a day that goes by that you don’t hear how good you look at least three times….
  • ….in an hour.
  • you become the unofficial Performance Team guardian
  • Like literally the other three regard you as a parent
  • You cook meals for them, they come to you for advice, etc. Even if you’re younger than them, they all look up to you for help
  • Jun is a big clingy baby
  • Like he will do anything for your cuddles
  • He loves sleeping with you bc he loves just being able to completely wrap himself around you for such a long time
  • like if you wake up in the middle of the night and have to go to the bathroom or smth then too bad so sad you’re screwed bc there is literally no way that you’re getting yourself untangled from him
  • in truth he’s actually a very light sleeper and wakes up every time that you do but he pretends to be asleep bc you feel nice and he doesn’t want to let you go
  • The type to like massage your scalp as you’re laying with him which sounds weird as hell but actually feels very nice and helps your hair grow faster fun facts
  • If you’re sitting on the couch and he walks in he will literally make you get up so that he can sit down and then you can just sit on him
  • then proceeds to wrap his arms around you and squeeze you as tightly as he possibly can as you sit on him
  • “Jun I literally can’t breathe”
  • “But you feel so nice…”
  • LOVELOVELOVES holding your hand. His absolute favorite thing in the world is intertwining his fingers with yours and swinging your hands between each other as you walk
  • Dotes on you like you wouldn’t believe
  • There is a lot of face squishing and “Aigoo, you’re so cute!” coming from him constantly
  • Just really loves taking care of you honestly like even if you’re older than him he’d be so into playing the ‘Oppa’ role
  • He’d definitely love to be the one to take care of you when you’re scared
  • I mean not that he’d enjoy you being scared, he’d just love the opportunity to take care of you
  • And he’d honestly be a really calming person like
  • He’ll just hold you closely and stroke your hair, singing quietly to you in Chinese until you feel better
  • Will always cook you his favorite Chinese foods and just watches so eagerly as you eat them
  • And honestly they’re all delicious because there is nothing that this boy can’t do I swear to you he is good at everything and probably especially cooking honestly
  • But as good as he is at cooking he loves to eat your cooking as well
  • Like even if you’re a terrible cook he’ll eat everything that you make as though he hasn’t seen food in ten years, constantly gushing about how good it is
  • and you’re like “shut up Jun you don’t have to say that I know it’s not that good”
  • but he’s totally genuine like he really believes that he’s never tasted a better meal in his life
  • Basically your number one fan
  • You’re his moral support when he works out
  • He’d beg you to work out for him but if you’re not about that life, he’d at least make you come along just to keep him company and make sure he doesn’t slack off 
  • but Wen Junhui working out is a sight too holy for us mere humans
  • so naturally you can’t watch him work out bc it’s just so embarrassing so you like pull out your phone or smth and in general just do everything that you can to avoid looking at him
  • and he’s so confused at first but the second that he catches on he abuses his newfound power to aid him in his eternal conquest to embarrass you
  • Will take off his shirt to work out as soon as he understands that you’re flustered by it
  • “Hey babe can you come over here??”
  • “There’s nothing you have to say that you can’t say from where you are”
  • “No really come here for a second”
  • And the second you do go over there he surprise attack hugs you, sweaty shirtless torso and all
  • And you basically short circuit because I mean come on a hug from sweaty shirtless Wen Junhui
  • And he just smiles to himself like a giddy little kid
  • But of course he starts to pout as soon as you push him and his sweaty self away
  • “Gross Jun now I have to take a shower”
  • “Can I join~?”
  • Cue pushing Jun once more
  • But this time, he just laughs, loving how easy it is to tease you
  • He would be so excited!!!!! to teach you Chinese!!! if you don’t already speak it!!!!!!!
  • Honestly the second that you started dating one of the first things that crossed his mind was where to start on teaching you Chinese
  • Like no joke first date the first thing he says is, “Do you want to learn Chinese?”
  • And if you say no he’ll give you that puppy dog pot of his until you give in
  • And he’d honestly be a really great teacher like he’d teach at a pace that you could keep up with and he’d have such a good way of explaining things and he’d be so patient and understanding like I swear to you Wen Junhui was meant to be a teacher
  • He would think it was the cutest thing when you messed up your words in Chinese. Ofc he would correct you bc he wants you to be able to speak it well but he would still think that it was absolutely precious
  • And then he’d start talking to you in Chinese in front of the boys and probably just saying super greasy things and they’re all infuriated that they can’t understand but judging by the fact that Minghao is gagging in a corner they’re not entirely sure that they even want to understand
  • And if you already speak Chinese he’d want to teach you Korean, and even if he makes mistakes in his teaching sometimes he’d try his best and he’d still do a very good job
  • When he gets serious from time to time, he is honestly just so genuinely romantic
  • It actually happens a lot more often than you’d think; I’d bet that his mind is actually full of pretty profound thoughts. I mean Jun’s a smart guy y’all there’s gotta be some interesting stuff going on in that head of his
  • He’ll look you in the eyes and he just has this sort of fire in his eyes and you know that you couldn’t look away if you tried, but you’re pretty sure that you don’t want to anyway
  • His voice will get lower and smoother and you can just hear the sincerity dripping from every word that he says
  • “You know, ______, I really love you more than anything else in the world.”
  • And like you’ll never see these moods of his coming - he’ll be laughing and joking with you one second and then the next he’s dead serious, telling you how he wants to spend the rest of his life with you
  • And then he switches right back to his normal self just as quickly and you’re always left wondering what on Earth just hit you
  • For as much of a grease ball as he is and as much as he loves to irritate/embarrass you, nothing on this planet would make him happier than you expressing your feelings for him
  • Whether that’s through saying something to him or even just small actions, his heart would feel like when he first fell in love with you all over again every single time without fail
  • Little things just like you coming to him when you’re scared or you telling him to be careful before he goes out would never feel to bring a smile to his face, making him feel more loved than anything else ever could
  • He, of course, would return all of said gestures, making sure that you felt the same amount of love as him (and then some)
  • The type to never leave the house without giving you a hug and a kiss first
  • Like seriously for all his goofy, greasy exterior, he’s a seriously intelligent and caring man and I think a lot of people tend to overlook that
  • Really hates being separate from you
  • He understands that it’s necessary sometimes, and he won’t put up a big stink about it, but even if it’s cliche, he’ll always feel like there’s just something missing when you’re not with him
  • If he ever has to be apart from you for promotions or whatnot, he’s the type to take something of yours along with him; he’d like to have a stuffed animal sprayed with your perfume/cologne that he can hold onto in your absence
  • He’s just a very spontaneous boyfriend, honestly
  • Like you’ll be driving to a shop or something and he’ll just turn to you and say, “Do you wanna go on a trip?”
  • And then suddenly you guys are watching the stars an hour away from your original destination and neither of you mind one bit
  • Or you’ll be sitting on the couch when out of nowhere music starts playing and Jun’s pulling you up from the couch for a dance
  • Sometimes they’re sweet, meaningful slow dances
  • And other times you’re just jumping around together without a care in the world as to how you look
  • 10/10 definitely a fan of eskimo kisses
  • As a summary, all in all, Jun is a very thoughtful, caring boyfriend who knows when to be serious and when to be a goof. basically Jun is the ideal man
  • ALRIGHT SO JUN’S PROPOSAL
  • I think that he would propose relatively quickly; you guys wouldn’t be dating for a particularly long time before decided to propose, honestly probably just a few months
  • He would’ve known pretty quickly that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with you, so he’d see no sense in waiting around for too long
  • The ring would definitely be really stylish and pretty and super sparkly and just overall great
  • He’s the type to do a sort of light hearted proposal; it’s a happy thing, so he wouldn’t want it to be taken too seriously
  • Of course he would make sure that you knew he meant every word that he said, he wouldn’t want it to be taken lightly, either; just not too seriously
  • He’d spend the day with you in all your favorite places
  • But not places where you need to be quiet; places where you can totally let loose like parks or swimming pools or whatever
  • Finished, of course, by a meal at your favorite restaurant
  • He would wait until you went back home to actually pop the question
  • He wouldn’t make a big deal out of it; he’d ask when it felt most natural
  • Like you two would be all cuddled up in bed, ready to go to sleep, just quietly talking about whatever when
  • “Hey, ______?”
  • “Yeah?”
  • “Will you marry me?”
  • You’d probably think he wasn’t being serious at first as it was just so nonchalant so you’d turn to look at him, but the look in his eyes would be totally sincere
  • And then he pulls the ring from the nightstand and you’re just like oH MY GOD HE’S NOT JOKING
  • And he’d just laugh at how shocked you are, holding you tight with the biggest smile on his face
