What about Lance for the character moment thingy :3
Lance is that moment you’re allowed to sit in the front seat of the car and it’s a treat. You can barely see above the dashboard. The power lines whiz by and your mother asks you what you want for lunch. Your feet kick excitedly as she hands you a brightly coloured box. The speaker on your right muffles out a goodbye. You got the best toy.
About: “The first words your true love will say to you are ‘tattooed’ on you and why the fuck are their first words something really ridiculous AU”
“What does yours say!?” Dahyun
asked you and grabbed at your arm as she kicked her feet excitedly.
It was the first day of second
grade and the teacher had just confirmed to the entire class that yes, the
words on their arms were indeed the first thing their true love would say to
them. And so, the entire class was thrown into a flurry, students snatching at
each other’s wrists from across the table and reading their tattoos aloud. “Do
you have a pencil?” “What language is
THIS?” “KIHYUN.” “What?! That’s not even my name!!” “You’re a- Mr. Kim! What
does this word say?”
Your table had already examined
half of the arms there, some tattoos were on the underside, others drifting
with odd spacing while others spiraled up arms. Yours being the last one. “I’ll
pay you fifty thousand won if you pants him.” Dahyun read out loud and set your
arm down. “What does that even mean?” She said to the empty air and looked back
at you, do you know what ‘pants’ means?” You shook your head.
Dayhyun raised her hand, waving it
frantically and calling the teacher over. You looked at the word on her
forearm, “Pardon?” You scrunched your brows together, at least she could
Mr. Kim slid between desks and
stepped up at the front of the sunshine yellow table, “Yes?” He asked and
looked between you and Dahyun. “What does ‘pants him’ mean?” The both of you
looked at him expectantly, waiting for his answer. But he simply chuckled and
said, “You’ll find out.” Before walking away, leaving the both of you even more
yours is distinct!” Dahyun gestured at your arm with her chopsticks before
placing a square of beef in her mouth. “Mine could be anyone. It’s so freaking
common. A guy in the lunch line said it yesterday but no way can it be him.”
Dahyun’s face scoffed as she chewed.
oh so romantic curling up my arm in his swirling handwriting and then you look
closer and see that he’s telling me to yank someone’s pants down.” You fake
glared at her and opened a carton of milk. “Again, that’s what I’m saying, at
least you’ll know it’s him.” Dahyun continued.
“But it’s in
his or her handwriting.” You countered and picked up a napkin. “It’s not like
he’s going to write it on a note for me.” She whined and sagged her shoulders.
It was what
you learned on the second day of second grade years ago. The words on your arms were in
the handwriting of your soulmate when you meet them. In your case that only
dragged more attention to your arm from passersby.
have a point.” You flicked a piece of soggy seaweed at her.
going down to the Han River tonight, you wanna come?” Johnny had snuck up
behind you and nearly made you jump to the second floor. You closed your eyes,
allowing your heart to calm down before addressing him. “First of all don’t ever do that again.” You hissed out and
threw a glare at him over your shoulder. “And second of all, no.” You said
blankly before fully facing the front of the classroom. “Why are you
whispering? It’s break time.” He whispered as he sauntered to the empty desk in
front of you. “I think your dragon breath has driven Eungi into homeschooling.”
He gave you a knowing look as he pointed down at the deserted desk before
sitting on it. “You’re hilarious.” You said sardonically and smacked his knee.
“Why don’t you want to come?” He
asked, his face serious as his eyes bore into yours. “Because there isn’t much
to do, we can’t stay out late on a school night. All we’ll end up doing is
sitting on benches and rocks staring at nothing.” Johnny sat up straighter, “I’ll
pretend to not hear that.” He adjusted his sitting position on the seat like a
peacock whose feathers just got ruffled.
“Come on,” He persisted. “Live
a little, Taeyong and Doyoung are coming, and so is Dahyun.” When you didn’t
respond he began shaking your arm, “Y/NNN.”
You pulled your mouth into a
straight line, “Maybe next time.”
Johnny stood up at your answer.
Very un-Johnny-like of him and wandered back to his seat. “Fine.” He said,
jamming every ounce of sass he had into the word.
under the dim gold light of your desk lamp jotting down notes into your
notebook. You heaved a sigh and set down your pencil and stared at your cramped
up hand. Using your other hand you grabbed your phone to check the time while
you waited for the angry pulse in your right hand to go away.
It was late
you would say. Late to be studying but not late to be up. You set your phone
back down and prepared to dive back in hell when you heard something hit your
out every clichéd Hollywood movie scenario where you’d find a boy out there
holding flowers proclaiming his love to you. It’s probably a stupid bird. You thought as you crossed your room
to the window. You heard the front door close, probably your mom getting home
from groceries or something. You assumed flippantly as you opened the curtains.
There was a
boy standing outide. But he was not proclaiming his love for you. “Y/N you’re
coming with us!” Doyoung jumped up and down like a bunny as he cupped his hands
around his mouth. “No I’m not!” You hollered back and closed the curtains.
around to head back to your desk only to see a figure in your doorway and
nearly fainted on the spot. “How the hell did you get in here Johnny?” You
asked accusingly as he stepped into your bedroom, Jaehyun and Taeyong
following in tow. “Oh hell no.” Their plans clicking into place in your brain
as the three of them grinned cheekily at you.
kidnapping!” You shouted as the three of them carried you down the steps. “Stop
moving.” Jaehyun said exasperatedly as he tried to catch your kicking feet. “Do
I look like I want to leave the
house?” You pinned him with a glare. “Relax Y/N we left a note for your mom in
the kitchen.” Johnny answered your first question as he ran down the
steps. “Y/N just one night pleaseee?”
You looked behind you to see Taeyong’s wide eyes in the dim light. You sighed,
Taeyong who was always the one to help you with homework or give you rides
home, -which made him one of your sweetest friends- was asking you for this one
You groaned out and stopped your flailing. “Thank God. I was about to drop
you.” Jaehyun said as they continued to carry you down stairs.
release their hold on you until you were strapped into the second row of seats
in Doyoung’s mom’s van. “Why did you guys keep carrying me? I said I’d come
with.” You said as you watched Jaehyun climb into the seat behind you. “Just
for extra measure.” Taeyong said from the seat next to you and smiled cutely.
good?” Doyoung turned around and surveyed all of the passengers. “Yes mother,
everyone is safely seat belted, let’s go!” Jaehyun answered too loudly from
behind you, making your ears ring.
slowly pulled up into a parking space in the nearly empty lot. Before he even
put the car into park the boys were already piling out of the car. “Excited are
we.” He said mockingly as he took the keys out.
out of the van and stood in the cool night air. Dahyun soon joined you after
crawling out from the backseat. “Next time you’re sitting in the back. Jaehyun
takes up way too much space.” She brushed off her jeans and linked arms with
you and began doing some sort of skip-walk down to the river. “Doyoung, make
sure Ten doesn’t get lost!” She called over her shoulder.
You asked. “New kid, he was in the back with me and Jaehyun. Don’t you remember
him introducing himself to the class?” She looked at you curiously. “Mmm, no.”
You shook your head, digging through your brain for any memory of someone named
Ten. “And he’s really cute.” She added and grabbed onto your arm and swung it
back and forth. “Like really really
cute.” She grinned like some sort of six year old with her first crush.
“You gonna talk to him?” You smiled
at her suggestively and elbowed her side. “Nah. You’re gonna talk to him.” She pointed at you before running off.
“What?!” You called after her retreating form. She showed no signs of turning
back so you begrudgingly took after her.
When you arrived to the little
group you saw that they were already crowded on a little boat. “Do you even
know how to drive that thing?” You yelled between the increasing distance
between the boat and the shore. “Course I do! I got my boating license last
week!” Johnny smiled at you reassuringly from the wheel. “Liar!” You called
back. Johnny only winked at you.
You turned and saw Doyoung and the
boy who you assumed was Ten running down the hill to meet you guys. The boy-
Ten- slowed when he saw the boat. “Uhh… you go on. I get seasick really easily.
Ten looked nervously at the boat and stayed rooted to the spot. “You sure?”
Doyoung asked, concern written all over his face. “Yeah, positive.” Ten clapped
his shoulder before smiling and backing up even more. “Alright.” Doyoung said
rather unsurely as he ran up the ramp, “Y/N?” He stopped to look at you and
point to the boat. You waved him away, amused. “I’m not going to be arrested
for stealing a boat.” You chided him as he leapt over the railing and onto the
boat. “See you in five minutes!” He waved at you and Ten as the boat shakingly
Dahyun stood at the railing and
used both hands to make a shooing signal between you and Ten. “Go!” She waved
at you to go towards Ten and grinned manically.
You looked at the boy standing a
few meters from you. His dark hair ended in a tiny curl at the nape of his neck
you noticed. He turned and faced you with his sparkling eyes and smiled
awkwardly before heading to the railing.
right. You thought offhandedly as you saw the way his eyes adorably
crinkled up but still somehow gleamed at you.
“Awww look at the lovebirds.”
Johnny crooned as he steered the boat past the both of you. You felt a mad
blush color your cheeks. “Looks like Johnny figured out how to drive that
thing.” You said out into the air as you watched the boat glide up and down the
shore. Ten chuckled, “I’ll pay you fifty thousand won if you pants him.” You
both stood there for a second, silly grins on your faces before it hit you.
Then the two of you froze. Your stomachs dropping
and hearts speeding up as you looked at each other with wide eyes. “No way.”
Ten whispered out in awe and beamed at you. You stood there slack jawed,
looking back at him disbelievingly replaying the words he’d just said. “I’ll pay you fifty thousand won if you pants
“Aren’t you glad we dragged you out
here Y/N?!” Johnny yelled from the boat as it passed by, they’d all heard
everything, and ruined the moment. You snapped back into movement, lifting a
brow and hitching the side of your lip up as you smirked at Ten. “You better
have that fifty thousand won ready.”
in good news though, I’m going to be moving out of this cramped awful apartment and INTO A SPACIOUS, REALLY NICE, ACTUAL FOR REAL HOUSE in July *____*!!! I’m so excited!! I’ll have a decent work space again! Eventually I’ll be raising quail and chickens!!!
Also I’m putting together some samples for an official commission post/price sheet later, but if any of you would be interested in commissioning me, you can go ahead and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll get back to you right away! That would help me out a lot. I can do watercolor or digital commissions, or even custom 1.5″ buttons or laminated charms. I’m pretty flexible!
