Choices Fanfic: Face Your Fears (Kaitlyn x MC)

Ok, so this is my first try at it…I hope I do her justice. I have tomatoes for sale at 25 cents each in case you wanna throw something…


You sit outside with her, the soft, warm breeze blowing loose tendrils of her dark hair around her shoulders and neck.

“It’s beautiful out here,” she murmurs, her voice soft in the surrounding darkness.

“It sure is,” you agree. Your eyes remain on her profile, following the path of a single hair down her forehead, past her dark expressive eyes. Down the slope of her pert nose, to the roundness of her plump lips, which are currently curving up into a smile.

“You’re staring…” she chuckles, still gazing up at the stars.

“Sorry.” You turn your own gaze back to the sky.

“Hey, can I ask you something?”

You make it a point not to look over at her, lest you be caught staring again. You don’t answer for a minute, and you can feel her shift to look at you.

“Well?”

You pull yourself from your thoughts and smile over at her. “Yeah, of course.” As though you hadn’t missed a beat.

Her brow furrows for a moment as if she wants to ask what’s gotten into you, but instead she turns back to the sky and catches you off guard with her question.

“You ever just wanna run away? Ya know, leave it all behind?”

You startle for a moment, but try to cover it up, before looking at her again. What exactly did ‘it all’ entail? “Why do you ask?”

She raises and drops a shoulder in non-chalance. “I don’t know. Just sometimes feels like I need to get away. Too much pressure, ya know? School, my parents, the band, our relationship…”

You swallow hard. This isn’t really what you were expecting. You know in the back of your mind, being with Kaitlyn has been a dream come true, and that one day she would wake up and realize how worthless you are, and how much better she could do than–

“Stop!”

Your head snaps up to look her in the eye, where you catch her hard, determined stare. She sighs, and lifts her hand to cup your cheek. “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to snap at you. But I can already tell what you’re thinking, and that’s not what I meant at all. You mean the world to me. I’m not trying to run away from you.” She leans in with a soft kiss to the tip of your nose, smirking at you. “If for whatever reason I just had to get away, I’d have to chloroform you and toss you in the trunk and take you with me, because there’s no way I could leave you behind.”

You manage a smirk of your own at this. “I think I’d pay money to see you try to lift me into your trunk.”

She leans her forehead against yours. “I’m stronger than I look.”

You nod with a small smile, and turn your head to kiss her palm. “I love you.”

She grins and leans in to kiss your cheek, the soft warmth of her lips brushing your skin. “I love you too, goofball.” She releases you and stands up to brush the grass off the seat of her shorts. “Last one back to the quad is a rotten egg!” she hollers before taking off across the grass. You leap to your feet and bolt off after her, leaving her question hanging in the air, unanswered.

You burst through the door of the suite and bounce off a solid hard surface.

“Whoa there!” comes a warm, familiar voice, as strong hands grip your upper arms to steady you.

You look up and smile in your suitemate’s face. “Sorry Chris!”

“Where’s the fire?” he asks uncertainly.

Before you can respond, Kaitlyn bursts in the doorway behind you.

“I win!” you grin triumphantly.

“Cheater…” she pants as though irritated, but the smile on her face betrays her true thoughts.

Chris laughs and shakes his head. “You two act like a couple of kids.”

“But we are a couple of kids,” you protest confusedly.  You step around him and into the suite taking note of the silence. “Hey, where is everyone?”

He shrugs, grabbing his laptop off the table, and heading toward the door. “Uh, I think Zack is at the library cramming for some big test he’s got in Economics. Tyler and Abbie are out on date night, and I’m off to meet up with Arjun about a new proposal he has for student counsel. Looks like you ladies are on your own for the next few hours at least.” He pulls the door open before glancing over his shoulder with a grin. “Try to behave yourselves.”

He closes the door softly behind him, and Kaitlyn turns to look at you. “You thinking what I’m thinking?” you smile deviously, snaking an arm around her waist and pulling her close.

“Oh yeah,” she agrees immediately. “Horror movie marathon! You get the popcorn, I’ll get the blankets!”

You shake your head to yourself, laughing quietly as she heads down the hallway.

She brings a wool throw out of her room and settles on the couch, while you bring the still popping bag out of the microwave, tossing it lightly with your fingers to keep from getting an oil burn. You settle on the couch beside her and pull some of the blanket across your lap.

“So what are we watching?” you question, popping a few kernels in your mouth.

“One of my favorites,” she grins with a maniacal gleam in her eye.

You stop chewing and turn to stare at her as the opening credits begin to roll. No way. It can’t be…she knows how you feel about–

“Forget it, I’m outta here.” You toss the blanket aside, drop the bag of popcorn in her lap and begin to stand from the couch. As you get to your feet, you feel her warm fingers wrap around your wrist.

She pauses the movie with her free hand. “Pretty please?” her voice is low in the mostly silent and dark suite.

You make the mistake of looking over at her to see that she has put on the saddest, most pathetic pouty face you’ve ever seen, complete with a single crocodile tear at the corner of one eye.

“Don’t do this to me,” you beg. “Don’t do the face. You know how much I hate clowns. Especially grown, psychotic zombie clowns!” You shudder just at the thought.

“He’s not actually a zombie,” she interrupts. “He’s more of a–”

“Semantics, Kaitlyn!” You begin to pull your wrist out of her grip so you can walk away, but stop when she softly calls your name.

“I just wanted to help you face your fear. I thought it might help if I was here with you. You’re always there for me, when I need you the most. I just thought…maybe this is something I could do for you.”

The annoyance drains out of you.  You sit back down, propping one knee up beside you so that you can face her, and take both of her hands in yours gazing directly into her eyes. “Ok,” you breathe.

Your response has shocked her into near silence. “Ok??” she finally manages.

You take a deep breath and nod, lightly squeezing her hands. “Honestly, the only way I stand a chance of making it through this is if you’re here with me.”

She rests her forehead against yours with a gentle smile. “Do you have any idea how in love with you I am?”

Before you can respond her lips are on yours, working insistently. Your lips part, and her tongue enters your mouth, warm and wet and softly stroking yours. The warmth blossoming in your chest magnifies when she moans your name, and your lips travel down her jaw to suckle at the skin beneath her ear. She is putty in your hands as you reach for one of hers, your digits intertwining seamlessly. With your free hand, you sneak your fingers beneath her shirt, gripping the warm skin of her back. Slowly you lay her back along the couch.

“FREEZE!” She yelps. You pull back, looking her in the eye. “Nice try, lady,” she says with a smirk. “You’re not distracting me from this.”

Your shoulders drop in defeat as you pull your hands away from her. But you smile when you look up at her. “Can’t blame a girl for trying!” you reply cheekily.

“Yeah ok.” she sits up and grabs the blanket from where it’s fallen on the floor. She pulls it over your laps, as you tuck your feet beneath you and lean into her shoulder. Her arm drops around you, and she kisses the top of your head. “You ready?”

You reach out to grab her hand, squeezing it tightly. “Let’s do this.” You grab the remote from its place on the arm of the couch, and press Play…

…………..
Yeah, so I’ve determined its actually harder to write Kaitlyn than I thought! She’s like this bright, happy, playful girl…and apparently I only channel serious, dark and brooding. This is going to take some practice. :-/

samuelpino  asked:

What do you think about The New 52 and not just Superman and Wonder Woman? Many people inssist that it was terrible and that DC Rebirth is the beast thing in DC Comics and while i admit that Rebirth is very creative in some areas i can't stop feeling confuse because of what they're doing. Also, i came to think that maybe The New 52 indeed made some mistakes (Bar Torr and Lobo) but i still think that it was actually better that most people realize. So i will like to know everyones opinion.

Stories from the new 52 were very good. From Action Comics, Wonder Woman, Justice League, Aquaman, Batman, Batwoman, Batman and Robin, Green Lantern, Animal Man, Metal Men, Harley Quinn and so many more. They were easy to get into as well.  These people are long time fans who want no change. They want what they read for the last 20 some years to stay the same. No other people it seems have a right to have updated versions of the characters. They alone should dictate the direction of comics. Compare honestly Rebirth to New 52. New 52 was creative. Rebirth is a recycled rehash of the 90ties that has been so convoluted that many people are confused by what happened or did not happen or have to get so messy and complicated in their explanations to try to justify the changes that it just suggests bad writing .DC jumped the shark to give older readers…the “meat and potatoes”…”the longbox” collectors what they demanded than try to build on what they did in the 2011 reboot and  have a more diverse and broader readership. They deliberately messed up the new 52 .

 DCYou was an initiative tried to be more diverse but it also ended up messing up the momentum of many good books with necessary crossovers and idiotic plot points. Eg Peter J Tomasi who had Clark tell Diana he did not love her anymore as the main selling point. Tell me. You love them as a pairing or a casual and new fan to DC, is that a way to get you buy their title? Tomasi was out to sabotage a successful book. DC was already planning to screw the new 52 and a good Superman version.

End of the day DC’s core audience don’t want diversity. It can be seen by the poor response to DCYou and even the few diverse titles in Rebirth. Look at Cyborg, New Superman and Batwoman and Apollo and Midnighter, etc and where their numbers are post Rebirth. They are terrible. It says something about the readership DC pander to and sadly something about DC in that they allow themselves to not try to be more creative, experimental and inclusive. Also take the blurbs that go along with Rebirth and the manner they address the readership. They make it seem as if new 52 fans mean nothing. The new 52 actually according to analysts saved the industry. It gave DC and Marvel and huge boost and DC are spitting at it and the fans by not acknowledging it. I stopped buying DC when the new 52 ended. DC are not catering for the likes of a reader like me. Their titles imo are too conservative and stagnant and lack creativity. If I wanted safe and basic I’d never read in the first place.

Ironic thing is the numbers sales wise don’t really justify Rebirth over the new 52. Other than the old time readers singing praises for lackluster stories…the sales figures are not better or greater. DC Rebirth was a reboot trying not to be one seeing they already did one not too long ago. They got some #1′s. Had initiatives the new 52  never had like double shipping and returnability and staggering the release of #1s.  They got market share for a bit but lost it again. Even Marvel at its worse has taken back market share. They say Rebirth Superman is selling so great. Look Superman is at 50k and dropping currently and he is supposed to be a flagship character and supposedly his new status quo is what everyone wants. Those are not good numbers. I am sorry compare him to Batman and he is waaay behind. This Rebirth initiative has not done anything spectacular sales wise. Same for Rebirth  Wonder Woman. DC keeps using all this hyperbole. Greg Rucka is a “fan favorite”. He is a favorite of some fans I can give you that. But not all fans. His Rebirth Diana story is not exactly a great one. Just a rehash and mish mash. And the sales of Diana reflects the response. It is now in the 40k range in less than a year. Azzarello stayed 3 years and even the Finches sold around the same or better. My point is no one can say new 52 is bad stories or deserved ending because based on comparative numbers…both initiatives had ups and downs and the sales are the true arbiter, not PR and hyperbole. Nor bitching online. Even the  Rebirth Justice League stories and sales are not as good as new 52. Look end of day good or bad is subjective. Readers have bias. But the new 52 era was a very good time in comics. Some of the best ORIGINAL story lines came out of it. I shall treasure the books I have and it is a shame DC can’t acknowledge its importance.

Rebirth is going to be doing a lot of events and crossovers to get sales up. It is the norm when you run out of ideas. I mean, if you freaking going to drag in the Watchmen and blame them for your poor management of your comics division…And if aging readership is the core readers you want to keep then expect other readers to migrate else where. Image and Vertigo and the independents seem to be doing some good, exciting and new stuff. Other than that maybe DC might get some good talent on AU or lone graphic novels…because imo canon is not worth wasting money on every month. I mean 5 years of story you thought happened  never did. But 5 years of money did leave your pocket. 

Okay I think there’s something I should make crystal clear:

DO NOT BOYCOTT SPIRIT OF JUSTICE SALES JUST BECAUSE THE LOCALISATION OF DAI GYAKUTEN SAIBAN IS WITHELD FOR NOW

DGS is a spinoff game, while SoJ is the part of the main series! Do you think Capcom will understand what you have in mind if you refuse to buy the next game for that kind of childlish reason?! They will just think people lost interest in the series as a whole, and we will be able to kiss DGS’s localisation on goodbye and never see it again. SoJ is already getting some negative backlash in the Amazon ratings due to the ending. I am fully spoiled with the game, and all I can say is… please, please guys. Buy the game and play it, and then do whatever you want. You can tell others it’s horrible, you can keep complaining that you’d rather DGS was localised first, but don’t just jump into wild conclusions and decide not to support the Ace Attorney series anymore. 

I have no idea who thought it was a good idea, but I hope people who read it take my advice and think before they damage the series’ reputation. 

So, to sum up:

IF YOU WANT DGS LOCALISED, BUY SPIRIT OF JUSTICE!
