Sami Zayn mentally prepares for his 2014 NXT championship match with Adrian Neville by fist-bumping a half-gallon of milk and sharing a long look with Kevin Owens–in their first moment sharing the screen in the WWE.
This is where I decide- what hcs do I do? And the answer is domestic shit, of course.
-Jean is taller than Jeremy, it’s an established fact
-Jean is amused by this height difference, and he occasionally puts Jeremy’s glasses or snacks onto tall things just to watch him jump for them
-“Jean I swear if you don’t get my glasses off of that damn cabinet you’re not allowed to watch exy for a month”
-suddenly putting Jeremy’s things in tall places is much less worth the risk
-Jeremy loves flowers, in his room, on the window sills, as garnishes on food and as patterns on clothes
-he also loves Jean
-what do you get when you put those two loved things together?
-Jean with flowers tucked behind his ear when Jeremy pulls away from a kiss
-he’s reluctant to accept this beautiful gift at first
-broken things don’t deserve that kind of beauty
-but he associates those flowers with Jeremy, with safety and love and happiness, and soon he leaves the apartment every day with a flower tucked behind his ear
-(he wears a floral bow tie to Laila and Alvarez’s wedding)
-(Jeremy starts crying when he sees it)
-they get a puppy after two years of dating, and he’s the love of their lives
-his name is Milou, after the dog from the Tintin comics, which are something Jean loved when he was still young and free
-he’s the runt of his litter, a white beagle with one ear torn off
-Jean found him one day in an alley, alone and crying with blood still on his ear
-he didn’t hesitate in picking up the puppy, who was only about a month old at the time
-in a way, Milou turned out to be a sort of finishing piece in their relationship
-Milou brings them even closer
-they wake up with him snuggled across both of their feet, he grabs the newspaper every morning and is such a lap dog it’s unbelievable
-the puppy’s recovery helps in Jean’s recovery– the whole reason that Jean kept Milou was because he reminded him of himself
-after Milou was brought home, Jeremy gave Jean a kiss and hardly spoke, just smiled with wet eyes
-“I know why, and I am so proud of you”
-Jean starts to love himself as much as Jeremy loves him
-they get married once it’s legalized in California
-basically everybody cries
-Kevin mourns the loss of the potential husband he’d find in Jeremy Knox
-no, seriously, Kevin sat in a corner drinking whiskey and crying for most of the night
-Jeremy dances with him once to try and cheer him up
-Jean thinks it’s ridiculously funny
-the night ends with stargazing and red wine, Milou at their side and hands with matching rings that say “tien”
So not all domestic but mostly that way, I got sidetracked in all the cuteness shh
Description: Two weeks after the dramatic events of Cheryl Blossom’s party Y/N is still trying to come back to reality, in the midst of it all she has an unexpected encounter with Reggie. Also, is there a real reason Jughead’s been avoiding her like the plague?
word count: 2440
warnings: A couple of swears
****2 weeks later****
Since the horrendous events of Cheryl Blossoms party a couple of weeks ago, several things had happened. First and foremost Jughead and I had not spoken at all, not once. I haven’t even received a text message. The first week I spent nearly every night in my room crying and eating ice cream. Veronica slept over three nights in a row to comfort me while I put on every Taylor Swift song and cried. It was ridiculous I know, I don’t even like Taylor Swift, that’s how messed up it all was.
Jughead and Betty stopped sitting with us in the student lounge and I’m sure they mostly stayed in the newsroom, I understood why. They were apparently official now and we’d exchanged many awkward passings in the hallway. It was like all the air was sucked out of my lungs every time they passed me, my own slice of hell daily.
I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve watched this celebration, and yet I never realized that Sami’s not looking at the audience in this moment–he’s locking eyes with Kevin in the corner, gesturing to the both of them and his (their) first WWE title.
Archie, Veronica, Jughead, Kevin, Cheryl, and Y/N are spending the night at
Y/N’s house. Kevin suggests Truth or Dare at some point and they all decide to
play. Shenanigans ensue and eventually certain feelings are shared, but will
they be taken seriously or laughed off? Possible angst.
x Reader (maybe), Kevin x Reader (platonic), Archie x Reader (platonic), Betty x Reader (platonic), Veronica x Reader (platonic), Cheryl x Reader (platonic)
A/N: Okay real
talk? This was pretty difficult to write. Not necessarily a tear-jerker like
the first two, but I think I more than made up for that by making this part ridiculously long. I’m putting a ‘read more’ because of the length. Again any comments
Previously: Veronica gave
me a kiss on the cheek before making her way back to the couch, one last tear
falling out of her eye before she wiped it away. “You’re grounded by the way,”
Kevin spoke up, pretending to be mad. “I said no more tear-jerking speeches.”
Everyone laughed at that, still wiping away some tears that wouldn’t stop
coming. I took a deep breath, trying to calm down before I looked around at everyone.
“Sorry, but you said to tell everyone what I really, truly thought of them, so deal with it Keller.” I
grinned. “So, whose next?”
By this point Jughead had stopped pretending to ignore us
and had put his laptop to the side. He looked calm, the corner of his lip
barely turned up, Jughead’s version of a smile. I smiled at him, and when he
noticed me watching him, his eyes widened a fraction before he dropped his head
slightly. As I kept looking at him I could’ve sworn his face started turning light pink. “Jughead,” I called with
frightening authority in my voice, and I saw his whole body tense up as he
froze. Everyone turned to look at him, expectant looks on their faces. I
smirked at him before speaking. “Who do you think I should talk about next?” His
body visibly deflated while everyone else groaned in frustration. “C’mon Y/N,
do Jug next!” Archie called. “Yeah!” Chimed in Betty.
“We all wanna know what you
have to say about our favorite beanie-clad boy over here.” Kevin spoke,
amusement in his eyes. I glared at him before I shook my head and looked around
the room, trying to will away the slight blush that decided to bloom across my face. “Nah, I think I’ll save
him for last Kevin.” From the corner of my eye I saw Jug tense up again. I continued looking around the room before my eyes finally
settled on a person.
You guys probably want me to shut up at this point but I live to annoy:
so imagine that when the press finds out about Neil and Andrew, they get pretty excited
now it’s canon that these two don’t as much care about being openly gay as much as they are annoyed that this is going to incite a lot heat that they’re going to have to respond to
they recognize that every team, athlete, and tv host in the country (and likely all over the world) is going to drag them through the mud just to fill in their time slot
so what do they do?
they give them nothing to work with
if a reporter asks about their home life, they walk away from the interview, even if it’s the very first question
they do it post-games, they do it at panels, they do it on live TV
their message is clear: we will respect you as reporters when you respect us as athletes, anything less won’t slide
and when someone is intentionally disrespectful? Well, it doesn’t take long for some teams to learn that there is no greater career killer than Neil’s powerhouse personality with the backing of the entire LGBT community. More than one player lost an offer to play pro because they went tried to go against Neil.
eventually they learn to just let it be and that they’ll probably never get anything good
except they do
because it’s not that Neil and Andrew are actively avoiding mentioning their relationship, they’re just naturally very private
they don’t actually give a shit what people find out as long as it’s not intrusive
so every once in a while they just do something that sends the press into a tailspin while they both appear as the epitome of indifference
most notably, one game during their 3rd season on the same team, they walked onto the court wearing brand new jerseys that read “Josten-Minyard” above their respective numbers
all game commentary is derailed for ten minutes
they were Josten and Minyard respectively in last week’s game what happened
later they swarm Neil
“Neil, when did you and Andrew get married?”
“…um, Monday I think?”
“or Tuesday. Which one was the 15th?”
“…okay then, who attended? Wouldn’t have been a big thing, if we only hear about it now, eh? Decided to make it a bit more intimate?”
“thing? I’ve been dating Andrew for over a decade. Trust me, this doesn’t really mean anything new for us.”
“then why get married now?”
“our bank was running this promo for joint accounts but it only applies for married couples so we figured why not”
“you got married to improve your bank credit…and that’s it”
they corner Kevin the next day and ask him for his opinion on the…unconventionality of Neil and Andrew’s relationship
he thinks for a moment, then
“you know, every so often, there are days where those two are all that keeps me up and running, and I feel like I would do anything for them”
pause for dramatic effect
“and then there are days like today, where I regret having ever associated with those idiots”
at which point he leaves, muttering about midgets and vodka
fucking rude, Kevin
this is why you weren’t invited to the wedding
oh yeah did I mention this is now Neil’s favorite insult to use against the Foxes
Nicky is being a nuisance? Allison is trying to pry information? Aaron is breathing in the general vicinity? “This is why we didn’t invite you to the wedding”
Pairing: Joaquin DeSantos x Reader (Brother) Kevin Keller x Reader (Friend)
Summary: Your brother is a South Side Serpent and no one knows it until now.
GIF Not Mine
Joaquin loves you, you’re his sister and he only wants the best for you. That’s why instead of you going to high school on the South Side you attend Riverdale High. You are a smart girl and he knows that, that’s why he sent you to Riverdale High. He wants you to succeed and get out of Riverdale, out of the South Side. No one at school knows that you were from, to them, ‘the other side of the tracks’, you blended in and no one certainly doesn’t know that your brother is a South Side Serpent and you intend to keep it that way.
You were friends with Archie, Betty, Jughead, Kevin, and Veronica. You felt bad for keeping the fact that you live on the South Side and your brother is a south side serpent but apart of you couldn’t help but think that they would treat you differently if they knew the truth. It was a little ridiculous as your friends didn’t care about Jughead living on the south side but it’s everyone else at school who would change their opinion of you. You knew that Jughead lived on the South Side and that his dad was also apart of the Serpents but he didn’t know about you or your brother.
When you found out about his dad you didn’t say anything because it wasn’t your place to say anything, plus you wouldn’t want anyone to do that to you. It broke your heart a little at everyone’s reaction to finding out Jughead’s dad is a Serpent. You had the exact same secret as Jughead and you didn’t tell them, even after they found out about Jughead’s dad.
You were at Veronica’s house watching movies with her. Betty was also over and you were having a girls night. Archie and Jughead were probably playing video games and Kevin was, well you didn’t know where Kevin was. Apparently he has this new boyfriend. It was getting late and it probably was best that you go home or your brother will be worrying. He doesn’t mind you hanging out with your friends or going to parties and staying out late as long as you call him letting him know where you were and one when you’re on your way back. You called Joaquin but it went straight to voicemail so you left a message and texted him as well. You said your goodbyes to Veronica and Betty and headed home.
When you got home and walked through the front door you were met with a surprising sight. Instead of your brother sat on the couch it was Kevin. You dropped your bag on the floor and looked at him with shock, him looking at you with shock. “Y/N? What are you doing here?” Kevin whispered, not wanting to draw the attention of Joaquin. You were speechless. You had no idea what to say.
“Err…” Is all that was coming out of your mouth. Coherent sentences weren’t being formed. You hoped that this was some nightmare that when you wake up this never happened but it did happen. It was confirmed by the presence of an equally shocked Joaquin coming from the kitchen.
“Y/N?” He drawled out.
“I-I called an-and left you a message… I can come back.” You told your brother. Your full attention still on a shocked looking Kevin on the couch.
“Sorry I didn’t see it.” Your brother replied looking at his phone. He looked up and noticed Kevin’s quizzical look waiting for someone to explain what’s going on. “I should probably explain.” He said aiming the statement to Kevin.
“Yeah, you probably should.” Kevin replied.
“Okay, well, Y/N I’ve been seeing Kevin.” He waited for your response, which was an acknowledging nod, and then continued aiming the rest of what he has to say to Kevin. “And Kevin, Y/N is my sister.”
“Why didn’t you tell me?” Kevin asked Joaquin.
“That’s my fault.” You answered, raising your hand slightly, instead of your brother. “I didn’t say anything because I was afraid. Afraid that you would treat me differently which I know is stupid but when the others found out about Jughead’s dad they freaked and Archie confronted him at Polly’s baby shower and he wasn’t happy and I just- I’m sorry Kevin.”
“It’s okay, Y/N. I’m sorry that you felt you couldn’t tell us.” He said engulfing you into a hug. “You do realise you have to tell the others, right?” You nodded in response. “But, hey I’ll be there with you when you do.”
“Thank you, Kevin.” You smiled grateful at him. Your brother looked on at the exchange between you and Kevin with a huge smile on his face, happy at the fact the two most important people are getting along.
The next day, you decided to tell the others the truth. It was still as daunting as you thought it would be but at least you had Kevin in your corner. When you walked into the break room they were the only ones in there and were sat in their normal seats. “Hey, guys.” You greeted placing your bag on the floor and sitting in the empty seat next to Kevin. “There’s… err… something I need to tell you.” You told them fiddling with the hem of your shirt.
“Okay… that sounds ominous.” Veronica said drawing out the ‘okay’.
“I haven’t been completely honest with you and I’m sorry for that but I have a brother and it’s Joaquin, Kevin’s boyfriend.”
“Wait, the South Side Serpent is your brother?” Archie asked, a hint of judgment in his voice. You nodded. “And you didn’t tell us even after we found out about Jughead’s dad.”
“Yes and I’m sorry about that but I was afraid of this happening.” You replied gesturing towards everyones reaction. “Yes, Joaquin is my brother. Yes, he’s dating Kevin. Yes, we live on the South Side. I don’t see the issue here.” You were getting slightly irritated and it could be shown in the tone of your voice.
“Y/N, he’s a Serpent. A criminal.” Archie said. Everyone else stayed quiet. Kevin was about to say something but before he could you got up out of your seat to defend your brother.
“He’s not a bad person. He’s just doing it to keep a roof over our heads. He’s the only family I have and I’m the only family he has. He’s my brother and I love him. I’m not going to sit around and have you judge him, judge us.” You snapped. You grabbed your bag and stormed out of the room leaving a guilty looking Archie. Kevin swiftly got his bag too and followed you out of the room.
