knitting brains

2

Started a project journal a little while ago. So far I am loving it. It is helping me create cohesive designs. As well as keeping everything in place. No more digging around for old yarn labels, wondering how long a project took, or trying to find where I wrote my notes for a project. I also love how relaxing setting up the pages can be. Ravelry is a great platform for documenting projects, but I really enjoy something tangible.

While he was dragging the towel over his body to dry himself from the recently taken shower, Bucky realized that nightmares hadn’t visited him that night. It probably had a lot to do with the fact that he almost hadn’t slept at all, his mind invaded with thoughts…about Y/N. He questioned himself if she would come to him again if he had another nightmare…

He couldn’t stop the urge to try and make things better with her. Last night, he had listened in her voice how much he had been hurting her, ever since they first met, and that just didn’t work well in his head. He had to fix it. But how?

Genre- Angst

Description- After deciding to call jungkook back, you find out more about him than you bargained for. Maybe making that accidental call wasn’t such a big mistake after all.

Word count- 2,438 


You had done it. After doing everything to convince yourself that you should just let this guy go, you couldn’t. The worst thing was you had been the one to make the first call. You were sat in an alley way, behind the restaurant where you had just finished working your shift. You wanted to make sure your conversation would remain unheard.

”Hello.” You said.

“You again?” he replied, shock evident in his voice. You were taken aback; did he not want to talk to you again? He had assured you that the two of you would talk again, so why was he so surprised?

“Yes, it’s me. But hey, if you’re not interested in talking I’ll just go.” Heat rose to your face, you were already embarrassed about calling, and he had successfully made you feel worse.

“No- wait- don’t go, I was just surprised you called me again, I thought you wouldn’t.” He sounded sincere, maybe you had overreacted a little bit, your nervousness was getting to your head. 

“Well, why wouldn’t I? You promised you’d tell me your name.” You fell silent suddenly, everything around you was a blur. You couldn’t process what was going on or what you had been saying, until a voice brought you back to earth.

“Are you still there?” He asked, sounding slightly worried. You had no idea what had come over you, you shook your head gently and continued.

“Huh- yes sorry, um… where was I?” You asked. He chuckled, there was something in his voice that spread warmth all over your body.

“You were asking me about my name.” he replied. You suddenly remembered where the conversation had left off.

”Oh yes! I called you and you promised next time we talk you’d tell me your name, so I’m waiting.” After you finished there was a long silence. Then a laugh came from the other end.

“Actually, I never said next time we talk I’ll tell you my name, you’ve made that up, if I remember clearly I said you’ll know my name soon enough.” He sounded amused. Did he think you were stupid?

“I don’t care.” You snapped “It’s soon enough now, so you have to tell me, otherwise…”

“Otherwise what?” He mocked.

“Otherwise I’ll turn off the call and never speak to you again.” You threatened. There was an even longer pause. You seemed to have shut him up for good. Yet, as much as you wanted to deny it, the truth was you didn’t want to stop talking to him; it was just an empty threat.

“Fine.” He groaned. I’ll tell you my name, seriously you’re so mean.” 

“I know, it’s a gift.” You said a smirk on your face “Go on then, tell me your name.”

“My name is Jungkook.” He said matter-of-factly. Jungkook, that name rang through your head like a bell. Why was it so familiar?

“Do I know you?” You questioned. 

“Nope” he answered. “Why?”

“I feel like I’ve heard your name before”. You racked your brains, eyebrows knitted in concentration. There was something you couldn’t quite put your finger on.

“You-um- what? I’m sure you haven’t- what I mean is, you can’t have.” he lied. 

“I don’t believe you,” you answered, flatly. You wanted to know more about him, but he was playing mind games with you. The stutters in his voice made it clear he was lying.

”W-why do you want to know so much about me anyway? What about you?” he asked, nervously. You saw what he was trying to do, but you weren’t going to let it happen.

“Listen, sir- “

“Ah, don’t call me sir, it makes me feel weird.” He said disapprovingly. You seriously didn’t know what was wrong with this man, maybe you had made a mistake in calling back.

“What’s your problem? Anyway, the point is I know your lying to me-”

“About what?”

“About something! Look, if you don’t come clean, I’m turning the phone off.”  You sat quietly, chatter of people back inside the restaurant buzzing in your ears. You heard a heavy sigh from the other end of the phone.

“I really didn’t want to have to tell you to do this, it’s stupid. If you really want to know who I am look it up on the internet. I’m not telling you myself, it’s embarrassing. But please just look up normal stuff, don’t go any further. There are some scary things on the internet.” You were so confused.

“Why can’t you just tell me yourself?” You asked, agitation echoing in every word.

“Because I don’t want to, simple as.” He answered bluntly. His attitude was getting on your nerves, but you remembered the other side of him. His personality seemed to constantly change, one minute he was shy and nervous, the next minute he was confident and somewhat rude.

What a complicated guy, you sighed to yourself.

“Fine.” You said “I think I should go now, I have work to do.” You looked back through the restaurant door, you could see people leaving, that meant there would be tables that would needed cleaning.

“Okay, one quick question, how old are you?” he asked.

“I’m eighteen.” You said. “I seriously need to go now though, bye!” You abruptly turned the phone off, and slid it into your back pocket. A smile stretched across your face.

Jungkook, I’m going to do some thorough research on you, I don’t care what you say.

~

You reached home after a long walk. The house was empty, your parents weren’t at home. You walked to the kitchen and saw a note on the fridge.

We’ve gone to your aunt’s house, she’s unwell, we’ll be back at 10.

You were excited to have the whole house to yourself, even if it was just for a couple of hours. This didn’t happen often. You grabbed snacks from the cupboard, whatever you could find, and rushed up to your bedroom.

You placed all the items you had brought from the kitchen on to your desk and opened your laptop. You were almost nervous to find out what this boy was all about. You could look him up on the internet and there would be information about him. Was he some sort of celebrity?

Your first step was typing in Jungkook on your search box. The image that popped up on your screen surprised you. You saw was an extremely handsome young man, whom you knew you had seen before. He was a k-pop star; you were shocked.

There is no way I was talking to a celebrity without even realising! Your research hadn’t ended there and you knew it was going to take up the whole two hours you had alone.

~

You were lying in bed. Your parents had come back from your aunt’s house, they said she was going to be okay, she had caught a virus of some sort. In all honesty you couldn’t care less, you didn’t like her very much.

There was one person you were anxious to talk to. You had saved his number, though it had no particular title yet. You tapped the call button, you knew you’d have to speak in whispers, as your parents were next door.

“Can I help you?” he enquired. After finding out all you could about him you were ready to have some words.

“Yes, you can. I don’t appreciate you lying to me.“ You said trying to sound unhappy.

“What do you mean?” He questioned

“I mean,” you continued, “that you’re not really Jungkook, you’re someone else.” You had confused him, but you had no regrets.

“What are you- how am I not Jungkook, my name is Jeon Jungkook, I told you that, what are you blabbering on about?”

“Aha! Wait- you didn’t tell me your name was Jeon Jungkook, so you could have been some other one!” You knew you were annoying him, however you found it highly entertaining.

“Honey- “

“Don’t call me honey” You said

“Whatever. There are not many other Jungkook’s out there, I assumed you would be smart enough to figure that out on your own, clearly not.”

“Now wait-” You began but fell silent as you remembered your parents were in the other room and you had to be quiet.

“What do you have to say now, hmm?” he questioned

“The point is I don’t believe you, I’ve seen what you supposedly look like. There is no way I would be lucky enough to have accidentally called an extremely good-looking celebrity who is known all over the world and has women grovelling at his feet.”

“So, you think I’m good-looking?” He asked, the smugness in his voice obvious. You scoffed. 

“Is that the only thing you heard- wait- no that shouldn’t matter, since I know that guy I saw on the internet is not you!” You said desperately

“It is me! why are you so much in denial?”  He whined.

“Fine, if it is you… prove it, send me a picture right now!” You said.

“If you say so, I’ve got nothing to hide, but I’m hideous right now so don’t blame me if you have nightmares all night.” You waited patiently, he was silent too. Your phone beeped two seconds after.

1 sent message: [image]

You opened the image, sure it enough, it was the same young man you had seen on the computer. He was beautiful, you hated to admit. He had the same large, sparkling, brown eyes, the same dark hair and the same pink lips that looked so soft.

“Well?” he asked

“Okay, so granted it is you. You were so young when you started you career, your nineteen now aren’t you?”

“Yeah” he replied.

“I know all your friends’ names too, and what they look like- “

“I told you not to go that far!” he complained

“I had to, I was curious! Besides it’s not that far.” You said “Also, your friend Jimin, he’s pretty nice looking, I’d say he’s my favourite looks wise.”

“Hmm” he simply replied. You guessed he hadn’t like that comment.

“Not that you’re not good-looking, I admit you are, but I don’t think I have a chance with you- “ you began but he cut you off

“Why not?” he questioned.

“Because you like older women, and I’m younger than you. In fact, you’re really picky when it comes to women.”

“Age doesn’t matter that much you idi- I mean… so what if you’re younger? I don’t really care.” he said bluntly.

“If you say so. All the older girls must be dropping their pants for you though.”

“Younger girls do too, and it’s not just girls.” he added and sighed, “what can I say.”  His fake arrogance was making you laugh.

“So, if I’m younger than you, what do I call you…oppa?” You knew he didn’t like that word. After two hours of research you had picked this up.

“You meant to say that” he growled. You giggled.

“I did, but so what? I’m younger than you. You only don’t like it if older girls call you that.”

”Yes, but you don’t need to be formal with me.” 

“Really, how come?” You asked.

“Because I feel close to you.” He answered. You didn’t know what to say. You fell silent and so did he. You didn’t know why you were feeling his way, you felt something towards this boy that you had never felt before, but you didn’t know what it was.

“Um- well- anyway I’ve seen what your fans say about you. It’s cute and sometimes kind of gross.” You tried to change the topic. He was quiet for a while.

“Yeah, it’s okay, they can think what they want. I don’t blame them.” He laughed. 

“I don’t think about you that way.” You might have been lying to yourself, you weren’t sure.

Don’t lie to yourself, babe.” You almost choked when you heard him call you babe, in English.

“Why am I not surprised you know how to say that in English.”

“I’m not called international playboy for nothing.” he said. You smirked to yourself.

“Right… I almost forgot that was one amongst your many other titles.” You both went silent again. Then he spoke.

“You know, I showed you my face, you need to show me yours.” He said. You were reluctant to do this. He was so much more than you; rich, famous and handsome. You were just a waitress, who was nothing special amongst other, prettier, girls.

“I will, just not now, it’s too late.” You answered quietly.

“Also, I’ve been meaning to ask you, how do you know how to speak Korean?”

“I learnt it for two years, with my sister. She always wanted to go to South Korea, she promised she’d take me with her so we both learnt it. But she’s gone and I never got to go.”

“You should come here” he said.

“Yeah.” you simply answered.

“It would be nice to meet you one day.” He added. You sighed. You didn’t know how to break it to him that that might never happen. You decided to end the conversation. 

“Um- it’s late for me, I should go to sleep. Goodnight- oh well, it’s probably not night where you are.”

“Goodnight.” He said softly. You felt a sudden of pang guilt about not showing him what you look like. He had shown you what he looks like, without even complaining. The least you could do was return the favour. You knew you looked awful right now, sprawled in your bed, all make up off and hair tied back. You chose not to think about it too much. If he thought you were ugly than that was his problem, you weren’t out here to impress people. You clicked a picture from above you, in your current position.

Message to Jungkook: [image]

You: Here’s my face, you can’t complain now

A message appeared after five seconds.

Jungkook: You’re pretty… 

You felt heat rush to your cheeks. He said you were pretty, no man had ever said that to you before. Nobody even looked at you twice. You realised something about this boy. Sure, he could be arrogant and rude, but he was also kind and shy.  Many emotions were flowing through you, you weren’t sure what to feel. But you knew one thing, you were glad you had called Jungkook back. You were glad you had got to talk to him.

Maybe making that accidental call wasn’t been such a big mistake after all, you thought to yourself as you shut your eyes and drifted off into sleep 

@rival-the-rose Thanks for the tips, and also @corvus-pica-pica for the advice as well! The yarn is mostly acrylic, I think like 20% wool? So I’m not sure if fulling would work on it to be honest (I’m a cheapskate).

I think my problem is that the thing needs to be decreased on two different sides, because the pattern is written from the bottom up and has you decreasing all the while and then binding off for the neck shaping. Also, the pattern isn’t written with cabling on the front but I wanted to try to map the cabling instructions on the hood to the front panel as many people did on ravelry. So in the end, the piece would need to look something like this:

I’ve tried with some scrap yarn, starting with like 4 stitches initially on the bottom and casting on four more every right side row, which sort of gets that shape, but at the expense of a fairly loose looking edge. I’m not great with increases but it seems like every other type of increase doesn’t leave one side totally straight like that? I don’t know lol I feel like I’m overthinking it.

After all these years…

After all these eons…

There’s still something to marvel at.

A carnage in chaos, an assured thing in any storm of blood and brawn.

Short, stilted thoughts.

Kel’domis don’t have much time to think. He doesn’t have to.

Doesn’t want to.

His blade cuts through the body of another.

And then another.

And then another.

Short, stilted thoughts.

Kel’domis believe he doesn’t have much time to think… but then he does, at least for a moment, and remembers it was never about not having the time.

It was the idea of wanting to have a thought at all.

It isn’t something he wants.

Not anymore. Not with what he knows, not with the thoughts that knot and knit his brain together, barely keeping a soul within the shell.

He needs to be the carnage in chaos, the only assured thing that walks away from a storm of blood and brawn.

His blade cuts through the body of another.

And then another.

And then another.

And then it’s over, Argents dead beneath his greaves.

Crusaders? Not even close.

They do not burn like he does.
