Just a quick one off of Liam helping his best bro, Jaal, prepare to pop the big question.
“Nervous?” Liam grinned at the fidgeting angara who was sitting on the other end of the couch fussing with his rofjin.
Jaal drew in a deep breath, stilled his hands, and exhaled slowly. “I admit,” he confessed, “I am feeling a bit apprehensive.”
“Well, you shouldn’t be.” Liam leaned over from where he sat and punched the other man lightly on the arm. “We’ve gone over this scenario a hundred times. You’re going to be fine. It’ll all work out, you’ll see. You love her, don’t you?”
“Of, of course I do,” Jaal stuttered, looking slightly offended that Liam would even have to ask him such a question. “Have I not made it clear that my very heart beats for her? That I want nothing more than to remain by her side for the rest of my days?”
“Perfectly clear,” Liam chuckled. “And believe me, the feeling is mutual. Ryder lights up like a Christmas tree every time you walk into the room.”
Jaal looked confused, his mouth turning down at the corners. “Christmas…tree?”
“Never mind,” Liam waved off the question. “I’ll explain it to you later. The point is, you have nothing to worry about. She’s as smitten with you as you are with her. With things beginning to settle down with the Kett and the new colonies up and running, it’s time to look toward the future, you know? Make a home. Make a life…preferably one that doesn’t involve being shot at and traipsing around inside of Remnant vaults.”
Jaal nodded, “I suppose…I suppose you are right. I just…I want this moment to be as perfect as she is.”
“And it will be,” the human man assured. “Everything has been arranged just like you wanted it. I saw to it myself.”
Jaal let out a relieved sigh. “You…are a good friend.”
“I try my best. Which reminds me…” Liam leaned over the arm of the couch and dug around inside of a bag, pulling out a small, black box. “Here,” he pressed it into the other man’s hands. “I went ahead and picked this up for you…well…technically for Ryder.”
Jaal’s face lit up. Excited, he cracked open the box. His large, blue eyes drank in the sight of the small jeweled band nestled within. With slightly trembling fingers, he plucked the ring from its velvet confines to examine it closer. He’d come up with the design himself after learning that humans exchanged jewelry with one another as a symbol of their commitment and he’d wanted to give Ryder something as unique as she was. The angara had no such custom but if it was a part of his Darling One’s culture, he wanted to honor it, to show her the depth of his devotion in a way she was familiar with and would understand.
The blue and purple swirled stone he’d had harvested from his home planet of Havarl glittered from within its silvery setting, reminding him of the vastness of space his love had crossed to come into his life. He felt a smile tug at his lips. It was more than he had expected. Flawless. Almost as beautiful as the woman he hoped would soon be wearing it. His heart stuttered happily in his chest at the thought.
“Well?” Liam pressed, “Its good right?”
“Mmm,” Jaal rumbled. “It is perfect.”
“You want to run through it one more time?”
“Yes,” Jaal nodded. He felt slightly more confident with the ring actually in his hands. “If you do not mind.”
“Sure thing. So,” Liam pushed himself up off of the couch to stand. “From the top then. Just take a deep breath, relax, and pretend that I’m Ryder. You’ve got this.”
“Right. I can do that.” Jaal nodded and also rose from his seat and approached the other man. He closed his eyes for a moment, picturing his beloved in his mind and instantly felt more at peace. More centered. He opened his eyes and gingerly took Liam’s hands into his own, imagining his love’s small, soft hands in their place. Yes. He could do this.
“Sara,” the angara began, swiftly taking a knee as Liam had advised him was traditionally custom for one asking their other half for their hand in marriage. “My heart and my soul, I feel as though I have always loved you…”
At that moment, without warning, the door to Liam’s little sanctuary slid open. Gil, the ship’s resident engineer, came striding in. “Hey, just came to invite you two to…poker…tonight…uh…” Gil blinked. The sight of the crisis specialist seemingly being proposed to by their angaran crew mate, ring and all, stunned him silent for a moment. “I can, uh, I can come back later. Sorry, uh, sorry to interrupt…”
Liam and Jaal stared after the man as he turned swiftly on his heel and disappeared back out the way he had come. Liam looked amused. Jaal’s expression, however, ran more along the lines of acute distress.
The human burst out laughing at the angara’s distraught look, “Better get a move on, mate, if you want to keep the element of surprise. With Gil’s mouth, I give it about a half hour before the whole crew knows something is up. You don’t want him blabbing to the Pathfinder.”
“Shit,” came Jaal’s muttered reply as he quickly rose to his feet and straightened himself. Just like that, the nervous fluttering filled his stomach once more.
Hey :) for the prompt thing - number 47 ?? I feel like that would be something Theo would say to Liam
Hey :) I used this for Day 3 of Thiam week.
(sorry my Thiam week is late, had a friend visiting)
Liam hated Theo.
He’d thought, maybe, just maybe there was some small redeeming quality about him, that somewhere deep down in his cold lifeless heart he’d be able to find the tiniest shred of humanity but no. Theo was pure unadulterated evil. He was the devil in disguise, he was hell spawn. He was a vicious, arrogant, manipulative cheater.
And he was winning.
“If you touch it I will kill you.” Liam growled. Theo’s eyebrows raised, lips curling into a smirk. Liam narrowed his eyes as Theo raised a finger to his lips brushing his tongue across it before he moved to flip through his fake money.
“I’ve broke up with him, for good” you sighed, flopping onto Scott’s couch. “You said that last time” Lydia shook her head, staring at her manicured nails. “But this time I mean it” you sounded convincing. “Keep it that way, boys are nothing but trouble” Stiles claimed, looking up from one of Scott’s Mom’s magazines. “You’re doing it again” you retort. “How many times do I have to say, I’m not the pack mom” Stiles grumbled. You pulled the magazine from out of his hand and stood up. “I am officially single” you beamed. “Stay single this time” Scott breathed, remembering the countless times this has happened. “I assure you, I will” you told.
“When I said I would join you, I didn’t think you literally meant we were going ‘household’ shopping” you whined, slamming the jeep door shut. “Y/n, the old pillows don’t match Scott’s Mom’s new curtains” Stiles shook his head. “I’m not even going to say it” you held your hands up and joined to walk beside Malia. After about an hour of searching the furniture shop, and watching Scott and Stiles compare the shades of pillows to an image of the curtains, it was safe to say you had enough. “ Malia don’t drink that” you told, after walking past the isle of her contemplating drinking the water out of a flower vase. You wondered around, running your hands along the contents of the store aimlessly, when you saw the most attractive guy in the world. You came to a halt, fixed your hair and picked up a pile of closest thing near you, before strutting towards him. “Excuse me” you said sweetly. He turned to you and smiled. “Would you be able to help me carry these- rugs. The pile of rugs I am currently holding” you said, realising how weird it would have looked mid sentence. “Sure” he claimed, taking them from you. “No that’s too purple, we’re looking for more of a lilac- for god sake” Scott interrupted himself. “Has Malia put an employee in a plant pot again?” Stiles huffed. “Do you work out or something?“ you asked, ignoring the sheer look of agony on the guys face as he struggled to hold the rugs any longer. "A little- hey can I get your number?” he asked. "Shut him up" Stiles whispered. Before you could respond you were being dragged away by the two. “Sorry” you called over to the guy, standing with four rugs in his hands. “Let’s go” Scott sounded like an exhausted father, as he then also grabbed Malia- who was about to put the annoying employee from last time into another plant pot. “Never again” Scott and Stiles said to one another. “Id rather go grocery shopping with Liam and Lydia anyway” you claimed.
“Thanks for letting me come with you” you beamed again. “Anytime” Liam returned. “We forgot the beans” Lydia sighed, as you arrived at the car, with all of the bags. “I’ll go and get them, I’ll be two seconds” you didn’t sound very convincing. “Go and get her” Lydia said out of routine and being stood waiting for over fifteen minutes. Liam let out a sigh, before entering the store you were in. He looked around a few of the isles, before he saw you. “Thanks again” you smiled at one of the employees. Liam didn’t ask any questions, before throwing you over his shoulder and starting to march you out of there. The poor guy looked confused, you simply rolled your eyes from behind Liam’s back, to show that you weren’t being kidnapped or anything, just greatly annoyed. He put you on the ground outside and you huffed, flattening out your now creased top. “What the hell was that about?” you whined at the pair of them. “Sorry, Scott’s orders” Lydia shrugged. “I asked him to pass me a tin of beans- that I am yet to pay for might I add!” you complained, waving it in their faces. They both looked awkward for a second, after clearly misjudging the situation. The employee and a security guard then walked out and joined you all. “Don’t worry, it’s just my friends being total idiots” you diffused, not turning to look at them. “That’s her, she hasn’t paid for it” the employee told. “Miss, you’re going to have to come with me” the security guard spoke, gently grabbing your arm. “No, it’s a total misunderstanding, I’ll pay for the beans” you shook your head at the stupid situation. “Miss, I’ll ask you again nicely” he said, opening the store door. You looked at Lydia and Liam and saw them trying to hide their amusement. You flipped them off from behind your shoulder, as you and your beans were escorted back inside the store.
“Banned for life” you simply announced, walking into Scott’s house with Liam and Lydia trailing behind, rather pleased with themselves. All of your fellow pack members sat and stared at you. “For stealing a tin of beans?” Stiles asked in amusement, clearly they had already been informed. “I didn’t steal the fucking beans!” you retort, after spending the best part of your day arguing with security. All of your friends then proceeded to crack up laughing, while you stood there like a complete idiot. You had stop yourself from laughing along with them, your pride would not allow it. “Look I’m sorry Y/n” Liam apologised, half sincere. You stared at him blankly for a second, before smiling and pulling him into a hug. “I hate all of you guys, you know that right?” you let out a small laugh. “We love you too” Stiles spoke with a false sweet smile. “Thanks mom” you mumbled quiet enough, so only the werewolves heard- causing them to snigger. “She’s doing it again Scott, she’s talking about me in wolf” Stiles sounded like a child. You rolled your eyes as you phone buzzed. “It’s my ‘ex’ boyfriend, he wants to make up” you read. “NO!” Shouted everyone at once. Words couldn’t describe how much you loved their overprotective, annoying selves. You wouldn’t change them for the world.
Sorry I’ve been so inactive, but in 26 days my exams are over and I will be all yours, thank you for being so patient. Requests are closed x
Have you stopped staring at the LA premier kiss and hug yet? It is so beautiful.
There’s been so many wonderful moments this promo. Honestly, our cups runneth over with wonderful Joshifer love. I tried to make my Top 5 Joshifer moments. Here goes:
5. We Take Care of Each Other 2.0
It was just a lovely moment when Josh was looking out for his girl and she knew it was his little way of saying “I Love You.” Poor Josh almost had a heart attack though when he thought a kiss was coming his way. And Liam just was his usual amused self
4. BBC - Jen Letting Josh Know He’s the Only One for Her
Thank you Olly Murs for your awkward flirting. It made Jen give extra love to Josh.
3. Kisses All Over His Face
Jen couldn’t contain herself and didn’t want to. So epically wonderful because it was exuberant and spontaneous and lovely.
2. Hand Holding - Real or Not Real Scene
She reached for his hand and he held it lovingly. It’s a private moment in a public event. And that they connected so intimately while watching a scene about figuring out what’s real and what is make believe was especially poignant. It’s been a year of pretending for Josh but it’s what’s real that keeps him sane.
1. Give Me a Kiss
I love this so much. First it happens in the same interview where Jen loses her cool because of Josh’s incessant teasing. And threatens to tell her brothers that Josh left her pregnant! PREGNANT and LEFT - implying pregnant wouldn’t be enough and that he had something to leave. Ugh!
So what happens? Out of the blue Jen asks for a kiss just because she felt bad about her playful yelling and wanted to make sure Josh wasn’t angry and that they were okay. And he stops mid sentence to give her reassurance.
It’s completely unnecessary and personal and intimate.
Jennifer and Josh do not act this way with anyone else. It’s beyond friendship. They can drag Liam into all of their stories but you know that the two of them have a connection that is unlike any other.
I love them. I hate them.
And here’s your hug and a few more just because you sent an ask and got me going!
GIFs absolutely not mine - thank you lovely creators.
Theo’s favorite ice cream is Green tea ice cream and Liam teases him endlessly for it, claiming all the time that this is disgusting to even look at it. Every time Theo buys himself some Green tea ice cream, Liam makes fun of it, bickering with Theo about his food choices and amusing the rest of the pack while doing so. Until one day Theo simply holds out a spoon full of said ice cream and raises an eyebrow in challenge. “Ever actually tried it?” He says, still challenging Liam to taste the stuff Liam claims to be disgusting.
And absolutely everybody in the room expects Liam to either decline the spoon or take it from Theo and gulp it down. But instead Liam eyes the spoon for a few moments before grabbing Theo’s wrist to pull him closer, leaning in and closing his lips around the very spoon Theo’s still holding, effectively licking the ice cream away. All the while keeping a straight face and never stopping to stare Theo right in the eyes.
Mason stares at him, Lydia stares at him, Malia stares at him, Scott stares at him, heck even Theo stares at him, none of them having expected Liam to actually do that. Theo yes, they would have expected Theo to be that bold, but Liam? No way!
Liam meanwhile swallows the ice cream, makes an appraising face and finally shrugs. “Still not as tasty as maple walnut.” He finally says and grins at the rest of the still speechless pack before actually winking at Theo and then wandering off, leaving Theo staring after him, completely baffled and probably with his jaw dropped.
Theo: *Rolls onto his side so his back is towards Liam, in an oh so not subtle “Fuck off,”manner* Go away, Liam. I’m not in the mood for another Mccall, suicide mission. *His Irritaded groan resonating from under the blankets as he assumes the fetal position.
Liam: If you’re going to be a hermit all day because of these nightmares, *Crawls under the blanket and forcibly rolls Theo back to face him and pulls the moody chimera against him. Eliciting a confused, grumpy noise from the boy, who had buried himself quite well under the covers.*-then at least listen to my heart, again, until you fall asleep, asshole. *Unsureness in tone as this is a fairly new development for them.* It worked the last time you were like this and your anxiety is starting to stink up my room.
Theo: *Scoffs* I’m NOT anxious…*Sighs at just how perceptive Liam is getting about his nightmares since he’s started crashing with him.* Don’t you have to go see Scott? *Continues adjusting himself as well as Liam, until he’s decided he’s comfortable enough.*
Liam: *Can’t help but be slightly amused by just how accustomed Theo has gotten with him, currently being proven by the fact Theo is practically adjusting him like he is a freaking pillow.* I’ll just tell ‘em I wasn’t in the mood for another Mccall suicide mission. *smirks*
Theo: Ah, I’m sure that’ll go over as well as the last time you bailed on them because of me. *Closes his eyes letting his ears focus on the steady rhythm of the beta’s heart. Trying to get over the lingering remnants of embarrassment for even needing this kind of help.*
Kallo turned sharply to Peebee’s shout. The Asari practically barreled into his chair, knocking the data pad from his hands. “Go deal with your girlfriend!”
Vetra and Liam flanked Peebee; Vetra shook her head at the Asari and Liam practically snorted. Kallo reached for his data pad again, slightly annoyed but listening all the same.
“Sara just got back from the “talks”.” Vetra explained to him, an obvious nod to the political bullshit she now had to put up with and hated with a fervent passion, “She’s been grumbling down in the cargo hold ever since.”
Kallo blinked a few times, scowling. “Okay… so what do you want me to do about it?”
In a world where every dating site swears by their algorithms and databases to find the most accurate match with a high percentage of compatibility, a new site is giving them all a run for their money.
Missmatched.com promises no data or algorithm, just a few people that *know* how to find your best match based on their instincts and their vibes.
Emma Swan is hired to investigate if there’s a fraud involved with the site’s claim of not using any type of statistics. That path leads her right into the hands of Missmatched.com founder, Killian Jones, who promises her that he’ll prove he’s worth his salt by finding Emma her perfect match without any data or algorithms involved.
It was early in the following week when Killian found himself pacing back and forth in Liam’s office, waiting for his brother to arrive. LJ was perched on the armchair, his amusement clear as he watched Killian.
“He’s going to turn up eventually, Killian It’s not the first time our big brother didn’t come home to sleep.”
Killian didn’t miss the playful tone on his brother’s voice, nor the fact that it didn’t seem to affect him as much as it did Killian. He took a brief moment to give his brother a stern look before he resumed his pacing back and forth across the office.
Liam and Theo watching Tv, Liam carding his fingers through Theo’s hair and Theo falls asleep leaning against his boyfriend
Liam and Theo doing homework together on Liam’s bed, leaning against each other and still focused on school work, sassing each other every now and then and flirting/kissing in little breaks between
Theo being very good with historical facts and every logical subject like science or mathematics while Liam is better with languages and literature, cue boyfriends helping each other improve
Theo being a good mechanic so he helps Liam fix his car (and Liam likes watching his boyfriend work on his car tbh)
Liam and Theo always sitting next to each other in class, touching each other’s legs, hands on the other’s knee and basically always maintaining some kind of body contact
Liam and Theo always touching each other one way or another (hands carding through hair, arms around shoulders…)
Boyfriends sharing each other’s hoodies
Theo being at every lacrosse game and most pieces of training, next to Mason, cheering their boyfriends on (Liam showing off his skills and getting sweaty hello!)
Theo arguing with Finstock when he yells at Liam, amusing the whole team and everybody who watches on
Against common beliefs, it is Liam who started with the bite marks and stating his claim, not Theo
Both being jealous when times call for it and are not above growling at anybody who has the audacity to make a move on the other
Theo getting frustrated while learning, and in the beginning probably failing, Spanish,. so Liam tries to find a good motivation: For every right answer when Liam tests Theo, Liam strips one item of clothing. Even the teacher is surprised how much Theo’s knowledge of the vocabulary increases all of sudden…
Theo pulling Liam in his lap while they’re making out and Liam loving it. Liam on the other hand also loves to take control once in a while and manhandling Theo, which Theo loves just as much
They can have slow and sweet sex but mostly it’s wild and rough, fueled by desire. Bite marks and bruises from gripping each other too tight litter their bodies and both proudly show off their marks
Despite all the passion and biting, they both love laying in bed after they had sex, arms wrapped around each other and Theo running his fingers through Liam’s hair, not saying a word and simply enjoying being close to each other
Both are insanely protective of each other. Hurt one and the other will come after you, probably breaking a few bones while doing so
