let's take a moment to remember this beautiful song

Tenerife Sea

This is a Spencer x Reader songfic requested by anon set to Ed Sheeran’s song “Tenerife Sea” where Spencer confesses his love to you during an FBI gala. I hope everybody likes it! :)

You look so wonderful in your dress
I love your hair like that
The way it falls on the side of your neck
Down your shoulders and back

Spencer’s eyes followed your beautifully dancing figure as you gracefully moved about the ballroom. He couldn’t help but take a moment to admire the way you looked. His very first thought was of wonderment, how could you look so breathtakingly gorgeous?

His eyes watched the way your seamless red dress complimented your voluptuous curves, and the way your golden hair flowed easily down your back. His eyes froze on your beautiful face when you laughed, your face glowing and your cheeks flushing with content warmth.

You swiveled your head, just a little bit, and your eyes met his, making your smile grow even wider when you noticed his staring. Spencer’s face reddened with an embarrassed blush as he looked down at his feet. You politely excused yourself from those around you and sauntered over to him.

We are surrounded by all of these lies
And people who talk too much
You got the kind of look in your eyes
As if no one knows anything but us

“Hey, Spence.” You smiled, he looked up and smiled shyly back, a blush filling his cheeks. The two of you had been on the same FBI team for nearly six months now, and you still could not figure out why he was always so shy around you. You honestly hated it, why did he do it? Did he secretly hate you? What did you do to make him so shy around you all the time? You always tried your best to be as warm, welcoming, and friendly around him as possible, so that maybe one day he would be willing to open up to you and prove to you himself just how brilliant and bright you knew he truly was.

When he smiled back at you, you felt a pleasant heat rise through you. His smile was like sunshine, the rays it shone flashing warm against your skin, and you loved it. It was the best smile you had ever seen, complimented perfectly by his curly locks of hair cascading across his glowing face.

Should this be the last thing I see
I want you to know it’s enough for me
‘Cause all that you are is all that I’ll ever need

“Hey, Spence,” You said softly, “Would you like to dance?”

His face lit up in equally both surprise and delight, “I would love to y/n.”

You reached a delicate hand out to him and folded his hand into yours, smiling, then leading him over to the dance floor.

I’m so in love, so in love
So in love, so in love

The two of you glided effortlessly across the dance floor. Your head hovered just above his shoulder as his warm hand looped around, cupping your waist with his long fingers, his light fingertips delicately playing along the sides of your dress, pulling you close. You took in a whiff of his smell, musty and manly yet in his own special way, making your head spin. Neither of you dared to say anything, simply allowing the silence to take over, letting it control the wanting words tempting to bubble off your lips.

The song ended, transitioning into something with a slightly cheerier, faster beat. You pulled your head back, and you realized how close to him you really were. You could see the depths of his eyes from your closeness, more brown and vast than you ever imagined. He had never been this close to you before, never daring to let you too close into his vicinity. It was like breathing for the first time, finally accepting the air that you had been gasping and choking for your entire life into your desperate lungs.

You look so beautiful in this light
Your silhouette over me
The way it brings out the blue in your eyes
Is the Tenerife Sea

He stared back at you. He never believed that you would allow him to get this close to him. But, here he was, pulling you close to him as you danced. He could physically feel your heat radiating off of your body as you twirled across the dance floor. It was a natural thing, dancing together, being together, and for a moment, Spencer wondered why he had not done this earlier. But then, he remembered. You were amazing, you were perfect, and he was just him. He never felt good enough for anybody, let alone good enough to you. All he could do was marvel at you and the beauty that beheld before him.

And all of the voices surrounding us here
They just fade out when you take a breath
Just say the word and I will disappear
Into the wilderness

Dancing with Spencer was more natural, more real, than you expected. It was freeing, and you loved it. Song after song, you and Spencer swayed together across the dance floor. Neither of you dared to move away in fear of breaking the magic spell that seemed to form around you, creating a protective bubble, keeping both of you safe from harm. Being in Spencer’s arms, all other voices faded into an unfamiliar void. You didn’t think, you didn’t care, you just danced. For just a little while, nothing existed except you and Spencer

Should this be the last thing I see
I want you to know it’s enough for me
‘Cause all that you are is all that I’ll ever need

Eventually, you knew that your serene time with Spencer was coming to an end soon. The people around you were packing up, preparing to leave. You took notice in this, but you did not dare to do the same. You wanted to say, feel safe in Spencer’s arms, for just a little while longer while you still could. But you were well aware that your time would be coming to an end any second.

I’m so in love, so in love
So in love, so in love

Lumière, darling
Lumière over me

After what must have been hours of dancing but only felt like mere minutes, Spencer regretfully pulled away from you, his hands still clutching onto your sides. The two of you had always been fairly shy around each other, both crushing too hard to take the next step, and then this happened. It would change everything, and you both knew it, though you were not completely sure exactly how it would change. You hoped that everything changed for the better, that this offered you that extra push you needed to finally ask him out, or at least offered it to him.

When Spencer looked at you, at first he did nothing but stare at you, studying the valleys of your cheeks and the soft, arching ridges of your brows emphasizing the sharp coloring in your eyes. It was all the more breathtaking to him, seeing you close. Each and every time that he looked at you, it was like getting slapped in the face, the realization of your beauty growing exponentially each and every time. He was still in shock that such a beautiful woman such as yourself had allowed him to dance with you for those short hours. He felt so special, as if the Gods above had bestowed him with a legendary gift. He felt unstoppable, being in your presence always gave him such a powerful surge of emotions. He couldn’t help it.

Should this be the last thing I see
I want you to know it’s enough for me
'Cause all that you are is all that I’ll ever need

Spencer gulped, still refusing to release you from his grasp. He reminded himself to breathe, inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale.

“Listen, Y/n,” He finally said, filling the silence once and for all, “I have to tell you something,” He took another deep breath, inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale, looking you dead straight in the eyes, emotion pouring out from every pore like a broken dam.

I’m so in love, so in love
So in love, love, love, love,
So in love

“I need to tell you something,” You nodded, curiously waiting, before he bravely continued, “I’m in love with you.”

At first, you didn’t say anything. You were in completely shock, (which was definitely within reason, the man had just told you that he loved you), but then you found yourself breathing in relief before the thoughts thrashing wildly through your mind could completely register. Before you knew it, your lips were crashing onto his, your hands migrated up his chest and his hands pulled you tighter by the waist, pulling you just as close as you he had held you for the past hours.

When you pulled away, a whisp of a shining smile dazzled across your lips, “I love you, too, Spence,” You whispered gently to him.

You look so wonderful in your dress
I love your hair like that
And in a moment I knew you, Beth

Nora let her fingers rest on the keys as she took a break. Making music was getting a little harder as she kept making new pieces, so she gave herself a chance to play something she loved. But if I make my into the back of your mind, Hand in hand but I know you this time, Beautiful and I know it’s right, And then the morning comes and then the morning comes, I never wanna be alone again, And now I know that I remember your name, I never wanna be alone again.” She sang, letting the music kind of take over for a moment. 

Different Colors
Different Colors

I don’t know if I’ve posted this song on my blog before but I think in light of recent events, such as the tragic suicide of Leelah Alcorn, this song has a message we could all benefit from. We have to remember that we are all made of different colours and we have to help carry one another through the rough parts of life. Imagine if we became the generation to rise above all forms of hate and stamp it out for good? How amazing and beautiful would that be? Although Leelah’s death was an awful and terrible way to end 2014, she cannot die in vain and we won’t let her. But we cannot fight hate with more hate. We need to rise above it. So take a moment and dance to this song. Because there is hope for us, I know there is.

Rest In Peace Leelah Alcorn

You were one beautiful girl.
