You’re so sweet!! I’ve been in a very keith mood lately so here you go
This is my very first Lin x reader fic and I am more than a little nervous. So take it easy on me guys, I’m new to this, haha. Sorry for the length, more parts are coming soon. :3
Thank you to @strongenoughfoundation for answering my ask a few days ago and giving me the courage to post this. I hope you like it too, haha.
The first time you noticed was when you met him.
Hamilton was just beginning and you had been practicing your dances for weeks to audition. By some stroke of rare luck, you made it; you were a part of the cast of Hamilton. Albeit a small part, but a part, nonetheless. All of your friends had cheered like crazy and insisted on celebrating the instant they heard the news. But now that the giddiness had faded away, you were left with a stomach full of butterflies and a nervous shake in your step.
Today, you were on your way to a certain dressing room and you couldn’t have felt more underdressed: sweatpants and an old T-shirt were your usual attire during dance practices and that’s what you were wearing right now. Not only that, but you were sure your hair was a mess, because all you’d done was rake it back into a messy ponytail before coming here. Daveed, fellow actor (and quick to becoming your best friend), had found a friend’s phone left behind and asked if you could take it to him. But that friend happened to be Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Yeah, sure, no problem. You could totally take the phone of the guy you secretly thought was amazing and give it to him without stuttering like a fool. No problem at all.
You’d reached the door and you took a breath before knocking. A cheerful, “come in!” sounded and you hesitantly inched the door open.
He was across the room, sitting on a chair with one leg pulled up and his elbow resting on his knee. You took in his jeans and grey tee, along with—oh dang, his hair was longer than you’d thought. Almost-black and with a charming wave to it that made you admire how it curled beneath his ear. Then his dark eyes flicked from the laptop to you, his mouth curving up near the edge, and yep, okay, he was really cute.
“Sorry, I don’t think we’ve officially met yet,” he said, standing up and tugging down the hem of his shirt. “You’re…?”
Oh, yeah, your name. You should probably stop gaping like a fish and tell him that. “(Y/N),” you stammered. “It’s (Y/N). Um, I know who you are, so…” Ohmygodshutup.
But he only smiled wider at your nervous antics and stepped across the room to you. “(Y/N),” he repeated. “I like it.”
You grinned stupidly. “Thanks, uh…is it okay if I call you…?”
“You can call me Lin. Everyone does.”
“Okay. Um. Daveed sent me because you forgot your phone.” You held up the phone you’d been fiddling between your fingers.
Lin’s shoulders sagged a little when he saw it and he dragged a hand over his face with a relieved laugh. “God. I’ve been looking for that for an hour.” He rubbed his fingers across his temple and then back through his hair, before holding his hand out gratefully. “Thanks.”
For some reason, your throat suddenly felt dry. “N—no problem.”
When you handed it over, your fingers brushed against his. There was an instant reaction in your skin, a little thrum that traveled into your hand. At the same time, you thought you heard the slightest catch in Lin’s breath.
on your biblical women post you added some names in the tags, so can you explain further why you like them as well?
Claudia Pilate - oh, the Pilates. You would think they would be the obvious villains of the Passion Play because, yknow… they’re the Romans. They’re the colonizers. They’re the ones who, essentially, send jesus to his death - but because the gospels are written as propaganda, some of that aimed towards Romans, the Pilates get pacified in the text and that puts them in this fascinating, villains-but-not, moral-but-not perspective that is one of the most complex and interesting parts of the passion. So some sources say Claudia is plagued with dreams about Jesus, and that’s why she warns her husband off killing him, and others say she’s a Christian convert - the first Christian convert. The Pilates and their weird psuedo-political actually love match moral quandry marriage/role in Judea is honestly the greatest
The Queen of Sheba - SHEBA IS THE BOMB HONESTLY. MY FAV SINCE I WAS LIKE SEVEN YEARS OLD she’s a figure that’s shrouded in myth - there’s arguments over where the kingdom of Sheba even was, so like most of the stuff in the old testament it’s all up in the air, historiography-wise - but honestly I love even just the concept of her, a queen in her own right with her own kingdoms to rule over, who wants to learn and understand about other faiths and people and so rocks up to the court of King Solomon like ‘teach me about god!’ and he looks at her like ‘mmmk… if you teach me about love’ WHAT GREAT RECIPROCITY BETWEEN THEIR ANCIENT NATIONS
Jezebel - LADY MACBETH, CERSEI LANNISTER, CLAIRE UNDERWOOD ARE ALL JUST DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF JEZEBEL. She’s the woman born into a male dominated world and uses every weapon she has - sexuality, manipulation, other people’s perception of her - to make a place for herself and win some power, any power. She’s villified for it, of course, and she meets her end because that’s what happens to women to connive, don’t you know, that’s what happens to women who assume that they’re on an equal playing field with men - and she’s demonised in the text because the text wants so badly for you to assosciate a woman who had agency with sin, and with false prophets, of going against the natural order of things. Jezebel knows her world, she knows how to wield power, she knows what symbolism does so even when she knows she’s about to die, she dresses up in all her finery and jewels because even though she lost, she’s still the queen.
Esther - y’all know your Margaery Tyrells and all those beautiful lowkey political conniving queens? ESTHER IS THE ORIGINAL FLAVOUR. ESTHER IS PROTOTYPE and i love her so much. So Esther’s a foreign queen in a foreign land, married to a king who killed his last wife. But despite all that, and the fact that she has absolutely no political capital, she still manages to use her beauty and her guile and her intelligence to sway the emperor and save not only herself BUT HER ENTIRE PEOPLE IN HIS KINGDOM. And she even makes him fall in love with her along the way ESTHER IS SO BOMB THAT IN THE SAUSAGE FEST THAT IS THE BIBLE SHE GETS HER OWN BOOK.

Whoever does NOT give BTS privacy are NOT real fans at all, I don’t care what anybody says. BigHit really had to write in 4 languages of how ‘fans’ took the same airline as BTS because of the illegal information they attained and how they were trying to sit next to BTS and take pictures.
BigHit made it clear that BTS are under stress mentally and physically because of these ‘fans’. BTS deserves so much better.
They are HUMAN. They are NOT unreal. They are NOT exotic. Treat them like humans. This is going wayyy overboard. This is honestly too much, and this is already effecting my day. This is ridiculous that I have to wake up to this information.
BTS do so much for us. They learn different ways to communicate with us, they always keep us up to date when needed and even when they don’t need to. They do many Vlives for us and they make songs for us and share their personal emotions. They want to connect with us but we allow things like this to happen. What does that say?
And for all of you who don’t think that BTS becoming more well-known won’t effect them, you’re wrong. You’re 100% wrong. If BTS gains more fame, things like this will happen a lot. They gain more fans and more people trying to follow them.
If we can’t get these things under control then why let BTS stay idols? Why let them suffer???
bruh okay before y’all step on my ass i am the original creator of this post, i’m just reposting it to my main blog before i delete my sideblog
sleeps on his back with his right arm under his pillow. he tends to rest his other arm on his belly and more often than not it pushes his shirt up to reveal sort-of abs but also flub and allura thinks it’s adorable
snores only if he’s really deeply asleep. none of the team knows this because in his time as a paladin he never really slept as soundly as he could have, he was always on edge, always battle ready
a huge cuddler if in bed with another person. automatically gets close to them, conscious or not, and tends to throw one arm over them
100% down for a cuddle pile. always.
very affectionate in general
tends to sleep as close to the wall as possible, with his back to it in like a lowkey fetal position
he always has one hand under the pillow (ready to grab his knife), and his other stretched in front of him.
despite being generally tense and Ready To Fight, he’s a deep sleeper and will only be roused if physically jostled or via the castle’s siren/alarm clock
sleeps with his mouth open but doesn’t snore
his nose usually gets stuffy in the evening and it annoys him to no end, hence sleeping with his mouth open
nobody realizes how tense he is usually and would be surprised to see how relaxed his face is in sleep
always acts like he’s against the Team Cuddle Pile because he isn’t accustomed to physical affection, but it grows on him after a while. he prefers to be on the edges of the pile, though
he sleeps better with someone else in the room, but dislikes having someone else in his bed. he can only put up with close contact for so long.
the crankiest fucker in the morning. never talk to him before 10am.
wears shoes to bed, this motherfucker
do they even sleep?
they will often go for a few days without sleeping and then pass out for as long as possible
around the end of their Stay Awake As Long As Physically Possible routine (day 3 or 4) they tend to nod off in weird places, as per the fandom joke
some examples include: in their plate of space goo, inside the compartment of whatever machine they were fiddling with, underneath whatever machine they were fiddling with, in Shiro’s lap (he was helping them with some project), on top of a sink, in a shower, under the desk in Hunk’s room, inside the refrigerator, and once hanging slightly out of an air vent. nobody knows how they ended up there.
sometimes they force themselves to stick to a normal human sleep schedule, but they tend to give up after at least a week. they’re never tired at the right times and end up staring at the ceiling for hours, so staying awake is easier.
they love physical affection and like to be in the middle of the Team Cuddle Pile
second crankiest in mornings because they never ever get enough sleep. will punch you if you talk to them before they have their space coffee.
sleeps like a goddamn baby
and by that i mean he wakes up 5 times every night to wander around, pester someone regardless of if they’re awake or not, or to get food
he sleeps on either his back or his stomach. there is no in between.
everybody thinks he never gets bedhead, but he actually wakes up unnecessarily early to tame The Wildest Hair in team voltron
he snores. so. loudly. keith literally requested a room change so he wouldn’t have to listen to lance through the walls.
lowkey cries himself to sleep a lot because his Funny Jokester front is a FARCE. a FARCE i tell you!!
he always loves a good cuddle pile and always wants to be the focal point. he and pidge fight over this while shiro ends up being in the middle.
resident pillow fort engineer. he had tons of siblings, he got this
always cold. please give him your extra blankets.
snores, but quietly
tends to sleep on his side, facing the wall
cranky if woken up in the middle of the night, but if he gets enough sleep he’s as pleasant as ever.
kicks blankets off in sleep all the time bc he overheats really easily
only needs like 6 hours and tends to wake up really early for whatever reason
checks on pidge if they’re awake, always makes them space coffee
if lance comes wandering out early enough they’ll make breakfast together for the crew
dreams are usually peaceful but right after battles he has a lot of nightmares
enjoys cuddling and likes to be the one everyone cuddles on/into. he’s the one who has his arms around everyone. tends to be on the outside, and his arms are the pillow and the large immovable limb that traps you from going to pee
quiet sleeper usually, can have very vivid nightmares that will wake her screaming and kicking
either coran or shiro comes to comfort her. ever so often she goes to shiro’s room and cuddles with him, completely platonically of course. it’s not like she lays awake at night thinking about him or anything.
(she totally does)
sleeps in the fetal position
very light sleeper, will jump up at the smallest noise
has to put her hair up before going to sleep because one or all of three outcomes could happen: she gets suffocated by her own hair, overheats because theres so much of it and it keeps her uncomfortably warm, or it gets trapped in her armpits or under limbs or in inconvenient places and moving pulls on her scalp so she’s basically fucked until she can figure out what strand is causing it
loves cuddling, a very touchy feely person in general
co-builder of pillow forts. she doesn’t really know how to do it well but she’s enthusiastic and needs to have some fun
this bitch? he really never sleeps
no one knows what he does, except that he probably cleans all night cause damn if the castle isn’t always sparkling
probably piloting the castle too
i mean how is he always awake to make sure allura’s alright? simple solution: never went to sleep in the first place
this guy always seems over-energetic and somewhat like he’s lost his marbles, its obviously caused by wayyy too much space coffee
likes physical affection but stays away from cuddle piles. that’s Too Much™ for him
that being said, he’s always there for patented Space Uncle Hugs™
seriously though. have you ever seen him go to bed? no.
he doesnt. sleep.
doesn’t have time to sleep. he’s making evil plots.
The Team Cuddle Pile
The Gang will occasionally have slumber parties in the room with benches that lance dubs the family room. nobody objects, cause they really are a family, aren’t they?
lance and allura will construct pillow forts while listening to the others talk and laugh and generally bond
they always have cuddle piles. always.
nobody really provides the idea to cuddle, Shiro just sits down and people converge around him. lance squishes next to him and pidge lays against his chest, in between his legs. Allura leans against his other side and hunk lays an arm behind everyone and sits to one side. keith sits on the other, not quite touching whoever’s next to him, but close enough
that last headcanon is if they’re all sitting up, most likely watching movies with the video player pidge whipped up. lance was the one to swipe movies from outdoor markets on planets they visited
if they’re all sleeping or laying down, people will lay on top of others with no shame. hunk holds everyone in his arms and pidge, lance, and shiro always end up in the middle. somebody’s head is always on somebody’s lap
one time lance and keith woke up slightly separated from the group, in each other’s arms, and lowkey freaked out
by lowkey i mean lance shrieked and woke everyone else up and keith exited the room Swiftly
its common that they dont actually sleep for most of the slumber party, and just stay up and talk to each other about everything from earth to memes
when they do sleep, it’s comfortable and they’re all at ease and they wake up feeling safe and rested
oh also the castle has an unnecessarily loud alarm clock that Coran will use if no one wakes the fuck up
okay! so, i know i haven’t been posting much BUT i think i might be getting a kitty. 🙂
my current apartment is way way too small, but at the end of the summer i’m moving into a normal sized apartment/ duplex. and i’ve been wanting to do this for like a year now. so, yeah i’ve spent wayyy too much time on petfinder in the last week…
