Me and a pal made up aus for Mchanzo for fun n giggles. One of them was university college au where hanzo was the librarian, mccree studying to be a vet and junkrat and roadhog bullied jesse sometimes, until hanzo comes to his defense and intimidate the pair out the library. Was great lol
college is more like your otp with pheromones and super idiots in love? Im into it like 1000%
( i want to hear more aus from you and your pal PLS)
The Griffin-Woods family seemingly has the perfect life, at least until Lexa’s (over?)zealousness as NYC’s top young prosecutor means she starts making some very dangerous enemies whose only goal is to remove her from the equation. By any means necessary.
Quite a few readers have been asking for more college years/early relationship chapters. A lot of people have also been requesting more social media posts. Since the fic crossed the 10,000 hit mark I figured I could kill two birds with one stone and did a social media about their college years.
This picks up right after Chapter 11 (December 2009) and it jumps forward a month or month and a half towards the end.
sports: was invited to the schools hockey team because he’s good on skates, but turns out mark lee isn’t all that good at contact sports (that and taeyong got so worried about him mark just decided to join badminton club instead)
clubs: book review with doyoung - but more than anything he just likes to hear doyoung talk lol, secretly part of a magic the gathering thing but only sometimes,,,,like ,,,,, once a week shh
when mark was applying to colleges, a lot of people were telling him to pursue majors he didn’t really like
“be pre-med!” “do law!” “business is the only place were there’s real money!”
but mark knew what he wanted to do with his life,,,,,he wanted to be a teacher
and even though people would always assume his shy, easily embarrassed attitude around others would be hard to overcome if he was like a highschool teacher or something
mark knew that he could do it - plus he’d always kind of wanted to be a kindergarten teacher,,,,,kids were always just so much more creative and interesting
and one of the things people had told mark since he was pretty young was that he was a natural born role model
from breaking up arguments between kids on his home block, to encouraging his friends to do their best, just being laidback and so easy to talk to - yet still working his hardest
so why not put that to use,,,,,,sure it might have been corny to say outloud but mark wants to inspire kids and be someone they can really learn from,,,,
even though he’d never admit it aloud because for some reason he’d know someone (johnny) would fake cry and clap about his emotional speech
which sOMEone (johnny) does a lot,,,, like mark will go “if anything, we can all agree on pizza for lunch” and johnny will wipe a fake tear and be like “the hero we always needed,,,,”
mark sometimes wonders why he’s friends with such dramatic people,,,,,,,,actually a lot of people wonder that
because mark is popular, people just see him as this approachable, adorable guy and he totally is
which is why taeyong is always sweating over the fact that mark is TOO nice,,,,,he doesn’t want mark to get in any trouble
ten is always like taeyong please, mark is a grown man he knows-
taeyong: mark - don’t talk to strangers on the internet, mark have you ever heard of catfishing, mark did you know your computer could be HACKED
taeil: someone please distract him ,,,, like sicheng spill some coffee or sneeze on him so he’ll stop
but mark has known his closest friends for the longest, and he’s got this sense of loyalty that’s seriously unbreakable
it’s one of the many things that is so great about him,,,,honestly how can someone be so genuine and nice,,,,,,,
mark’s roommate jaehyun sometimes finds mark sitting up at like 2 am - desk lamp on - scribbling notes down
and he assumes he’s studying or something,,,but mark also has another goal - he wants to write a kids book
although his drawing is sub par,,,,,ideas for the book have always been floating around in his head
and even if it’s 2, 3, 4 am he has to get up and write a good one down
he never shows them to anyone though,,,,because it’s sort of a secret the only person who knows is another bestfriend of his, haechan, whose still in high school
mark would totally pen pal haechan if he went away to college - don’t argue with me on this
as a children’s education major,,,,there’s a program that allows mark to TA in an actual school for a bit - only half a semester but it’s something he’s really looked forward too
there’s two TA’s per class and mark gets assigned to a first grade homeroom
which is where you actually first meet,,,,,
you get there super early, afraid you’ll be even a second late and make a bad impression - the anxiety of working under a teacher you don’t know makes you a little sweaty
and as you slide down the wall outside classroom 127, catching your breathe because you bet you ran here
you look at your phone and sigh,,,,,,,7:05,,,,,you’ve got another 25 minutes
it takes you a while to realize,,,,but there’s someone else in the hall with you.
across from your room,,,,sits a boy - he looks vaguely familiar but he seems just as nervous as you are
glancing at his watch and tapping his foot, eyes wide with wonder when you finally meet each others glances
embarrassingly, he scrambles up to his feet and so do you
“h-hi,,, im mark. im with 127,,,,”
he awkwardly stretches his hand out to shake yours and you notice that he avoids direct eye contact again,,,,,,,,it’s kinda cute
you introduce yourself back, telling him you’re with 127 too
there’s a short pause and then he blurts out “do you think the kids will like us?”
out of all the things to be worried about,,,,it’s somehow fitting of mark’s biggest fear to be of his impression left on the kids
something about his question makes you feel ,,,,, like there’s something different about mark
something almost pure,,,,,,
you smile “i hope they do.”
at 7:30, you and mark hear the padding of little feet. the excited voices and sounds that could only mean one thing - class 127 is on its way
the teacher, a kind looking older women, brightens up when she sees you two
quickly, you and mark politely bow and introduce yourselves. she seems so happy to have you two and you mentally high-five yourself in relief
you catch mark’s eye and he pretends to wipe a sweat from his forehead which makes you giggle
as the kids pile into the room, taking their seats the teacher has you and mark write your names on the board
beside yours, you put a smiling face and notice mark pick his chalk back up to add a flower beside his
mark goes first, introducing himself by his full name
one of the kids shouts “mr. lee!!!” and mark almost turns bright red,,,,,,,,making it hard for you to keep a straight face
the introductions go smoothly and the teacher sits you at one table full of kids and mark at another
the day goes by exceptionally well, all the kids seem fond of you - clinging to your hand and feeling comfortable enough to share favorite toys or books with you
during recess, one of them was feeling tired and had plopped themselves in your lap - which you were fine with,,,until they almost fell asleep
tbh there was only one kid who was a bit rowdy, sometimes too loud and too physical with other kids
but you could see mark had no trouble handling him
actually,,,,you were kind of shocked to see how diligently mark had committed himself to helping this kid - even on the first day
and when school was over, mark even took the time to wait by the kid till his parents arrived
it had only been the first day and you were already growing attached,,,,,,,,,you knew time would fly with the kids
but for some reason, as you walked to the bust stop to catch it back to campus,,,,,,you could only think about one of two things; all the cute kids or,,,,,,,
the first couple of weeks are a piece of cake really, the teacher was so knowledgeable and sweet plus the kids had accepted you that you couldn’t believe this was a college program
like you were getting credits for this,,,,, you had even told mark at some point “this makes me want to be a teacher even more!”
he’d smiled, agreeing and added that if anything - this class was probably the best class you two would ever have
at the end of one day, you and mark had stayed back to clean up and when he’d asked if you were taking the bus back you could feel a small flutter in your heart
“yeah i am, i wanted to go get some dinner to take home and then go back to the dorms to study.”
mark seemed hesitant for a moment, but then you decided it couldn’t hurt to make a first move - “do you want to eat with me and then we’ll catch the bus together?”
mark’s shoulders seemed to relax, he agreed and you guys finished tidying up the room before locking up for the teacher
“im on a budget for dinner though, i hope you’re not like super against fast food,,,,”
you mumbled, walking the streets with mark by your side, backpack slung over one shoulder
“that’s ok, i usually don’t eat dinner anyway. i live off ice-cream and bread my friend taeyong hates it,,,”
mark chuckles and you shake your head “you gotta eat, keeping up with kids is hard”
mark smiles, following you into the mcdonalds that you find cramped between two cafes
you order a burger meal and mark just gets some fries, you frown and he just shrugs “im serious, i don’t really eat dinner”
you settle into an empty booth and start eating, for while it’s silent till mark asks you cautiously if you can tell him something
you look at him, the fluorescent bright lighting in this place makes it hard not to focus on how cute he is - you can see his smooth his skin is, and how bright and big his eyes are
you swallow and snap out of it, “sure, what is it?”
mark mentions the rowdy child from your class,,,,,he plays nervously with the edge of his ear and goes “do you think he’s ok,,,,,,,sometimes i notice that he’s pretty thin. im worried about how much attention he’s getting at home.”
you maul it over for a bit, leaning back in your seat. it is true,,,he is one of the smaller boys in the class,,,,and sometimes when kids are loud it is a cry for attention,,,,,
“maybe,,,,,but we can’t jump to conclusions. i feel like if something was going on the teacher would have already known,,,,”
mark’s eyes that had clouded over a bit with seriousness brighten when you say that
“i never thought of that, but you’re probably right,,,,,,”
you lean over, stealing a french fry from his tray and mark crinkles his nose “hey!”
you laugh and tell him that when he gets back to his dorm he better have some actual dinner
you and mark part ways on campus,,,you guys still have regular classes on the days when you’re not at the school so you know you won’t see him till you’re back with the first graders
for some weird reason,,,,,even though you just saw him,,,,,you kinda already wanna see him again
when you finally do - you learn that the class is going to be having a fun outing day to the park on friday
you and mark grin at each other, just as happy as the kids are to be getting out of a classroom
that following friday,,,,,,,you come in to see a couple of parents in the room with some kids. one of them is the father of the boy mark was worried about
mark appears at your side and you can see he’s watching him too,,,,,
in reality if something is up, what can you and him - two college students - really do
but at the same time,,,you get the feeling that mark won’t let it go,,,,,,
you want to say something, but you feel a small hand tug on yours and ask if you’ll take them to the bathroom
you look at mark one more time, but with that you have to do your job
the park is fun - the kids are all energetic and you’re pretty sure you and mark have played hide and seek 435342 times
when finally the boy mark was worried about joins in, running right into mark’s hands
his father is talking to the teacher,,,,,a look of sadness is apparent in his face
and you look over at mark who frowns
at some point throughout the day, when the kids have settled down for lunch
mark is seated beside the father and the kid,,,,,,,they’re talking so far away from the group that you can’t hear a thing
but when lunch is over, mark rejoins the group while the father lifts up his son and they walk out of the park
the teacher tells you two they had an emergency, but your eyes flick over to mark who looks more distraught than ever
after a while, the day comes to an end,,,,,you and mark gather all the kids together but the teacher lets you two off early - the parents and her can handle them from here
but you and mark don’t leave the park, instead he calls you over and you sit beside him on one of the swings
the autumn afternoon is chilly, but mark seems so lost in his thoughts that you hope whatever the father of that kid said,,,,,isn’t too bad
mark starts off, the dread in his voice makes you feel just as bad
“is it really serious?” you ask, already knowing the answer
mark bites his lip, but nods
you drop your head and whisper that that’s horrible,,,,,
sitting beside each other,,,,you and mark silently think the same thing - no one so young should suffer
but finally, mark gets up as you hear the creak of the swing
he doesn’t say where he wants to go, but just asks “will you come with me?”
it’s already getting dark when you and mark get out of the subway, you’re in the busier part of the city - the streets crowded with people in stores, restaurants, cafes, and arcades
mark weaves through the crowd easily, but you lose sight of him a couple of times
you don’t want to be separated so at some point you reach out and grab his hand
mark looks back,,,,,and you’re scared he’ll let go but instead he only squeezes it tight and keeps going
you end up out back of a bustling arcade, there are old claw machines and mark points to one of the toys inside
“he really likes that cartoon, i want to get him something before the program is over,,,”
mark looks over at you and scratches his neck,,,,, “do you think that’s a bad idea-”
you dig a couple of coins out of your pocket and dump them in the slot with a smile “no. i think it’s great.”
neither you or mark has all that great luck,,,,,tbh you both SUCK at this game
but neither of you wants to give up,,,,,you can’t,,,,,,,
and finally,,,,,,,you get it - “mark, mark the claw got it mark!!!”
he rushes over, putting his hands over yours on the joystick of the game
muttering under his breath,,,you two carefully move the claw together till it’s right over the opening and with a press of a button
the toy drops and you and mark break out into celebration
you high-five and then before you know it,,,,you wrap your arms around each other
and it’s so nice,,,,,mark is the type that pulls you in close and it’s so,,,,,warm
but also short lived because you both push away in embarrassment,,,,
you grab the toy to break the awkwardness and turn to mark “mission complete!
mark gets both your bags off the floor, slinging them over his shoulder as you two walk back toward the train
when you’re back on campus, mark asks if you’ll keep the toy safe for him till you guys see each other again
you agree and think that this should be the right time to say goodnight,,,but for some reason neither of you do
“c-can i,,,,,,,,,,do something?”
mark stutters,,,,clearing his throat and you look up at him “sure?”
he shifts a bit and adds that he needs you to close your eyes for this
clutching the toy to your chest you do so,,,,waiting
until you feel it, mark’s lips pressed against the side of your cheek
he pulls back and when your eyes flutter open you can see the blush on his cheeks
“was that for helping you win the toy?”
you ask sheepishly and mark nods,,,,but then stops
“it’s also because i ,,,,,,,,like you so,,,,”
you can’t help the smile that grows on your face when he says that,,,but you hide it behind the toy
“i like you too mark lee,,,,,,,,”
like a puppy, his eyes widen and he stares at you for a second before a goofy grin spreads on his face too
“o-ok awesome,,,well uh,,,,but um,,, good night for now,,,”
you nod “good night mark lee,,,,,,,,”
you want to turn around but then you hear mark’s voice
“i,,,,want to ask you out on a date,,,but i need to think of a good one-”
“this was a good one. i liked this one.”
you say, referring to the time spent today. mark grin’s even larger
“ok,,,,,well then ill plan another one soon.”
you agree and turn to walk toward the dorm,,,,,when you’re at the door you turn to see mark is still there. he waves and you feel your heart flutter again
the last week of your program comes fast,,,it’s emotional because you’ve grown to love all the kids and you know mark has too
even the teacher gets worked up,,,saying you two are one of her best TA duos,,,,,,, “it’s even cuter that you two like each other!” she adds and you and mark almost melt into puddles of blushes
it’s also finally the day mark gives his favorite kid the toy,,,,,,
when he does - the look on the boy’s face is something you can only see on christmas
he practically tackles mark with a huge hug ,,,, the fact that he’s much smaller saves mark
but the scene makes your heart wrench,,,especially when mark promises to come back and visit him and the boy mumbles that he never knows how long he has
you and mark both pass the program with flying colors, you both get pictures with the whole class and with all the kids who run about to hug you two and say goodbye
and it’s heartfelt,,,but it just reminds you and mark why you chose your majors
walking to the bus for the final time, mark takes your hand
which kind of surprises you because,,,,he’s never been big on public pda
“have i ever told you i wanted to write a children’s book?”
mark asks and you gasp because it’s news to you
“i had a lot of different ideas,,,,but i think ive picked one i really like. i want to write a book about a fearless kid, who can overcome anything.”
you stop in front of the bus schedule and you rub mark’s thumb with your own
“do you know the main characters name?”
mark shows a hint of a smile,,,,, “i do.”
the name,,,,,,,,is the same name as the boy from class 127
when you get back to campus, mark shows you some of his other ideas and small sketches that he’s done
“im no artist,,,but im sure i can find someone to help. jaehyun’s pretty good though he won’t admit it.”
you smile,,,,looking through mark’s messy notes and stick figure panels
“i think it’ll be great, mr. lee”
mark scrunches up his face, playfully poking your arm at the nickname you haven’t forgotten from your first day in the TA program
when it comes out that mark is dating you,,,,there are mixed reactions
taeyong has 100 questions for you, yuta is devastated that mark is in a cute relationship first, jaehyun is super happy, ten is a little too happy, johnny goes ‘your growing up, son’ with another fake tear, taeil and sicheng congratulate you and haechan sends mark like 30 texts demanding to konw every last detail of how it happened
at some point you ask mark how he deals with this,,,chaos
but he just whispers “grin and bear it”
you guys stay in contact with the 127 teacher, getting updates about this kids along with cute photos and stuff
you and mark both ask about updates on the boy,,,,who thankfully isn’t doing any worse. apparently everyday he brings the toy you guys got him with him to class
mark turns out to be super low maintenance,,,to a point where people jokingly go “are you dating or just existing next to each other?”
which isn’t ,,,, like a bad thing
you and mark just don’t like to flaunt it with pda, couple items, instagrams full of each others faces
honestly you two keep it comfortable and simple,,,,
your dates are classics like the movie theater, picnics, walks through the city, even just sitting in the library together typing away on your computers or listening to headphones is enough
because what attracts you to mark is his work ethic,,,,and who he is as a person and what he’s passionate about
so you don’t need much,,,you’re just happy being able to support him and see him grow as this amazing person
and mark feels the same way about you
even though he gets cherry red whenever you give compliments or cheers of support,,,,,in his own way he gives you those too
and so what if doyoung is like “mark, take them somewhere exciting. i heard they’re opening a haunted house downtown in time for halloween~~~!!!”
you and mark would rather chill in his dorm, eating ice-cream out the carton playing video games than getting high blood pressure at a haunted house
(except you totally both go and mark lee gets so scared that when he comes out of there you’re like ‘mark, look some white hairs’ and he’s like honestly i love you but this isn’t funny we almost dIED)
haechan actually really takes a liking to you, because you both - in very loving ways - known how to tease mark lee
although pda isn’t mark’s thing he does like it when you rest your head on his shoulder
you could just be tired in study hall, wearing a sweatshirt and pajama bottoms - curled up at his side or you could be falling asleep on the bus ride home,,,,,,having you close like that makes mark happy
because he knows you’re safe - and that’s the only thing that matters
actually,,,,even though couple items make mark cringe a bit, he’d still probably buy you matching hats because when does mark like not wear hats
he’d be like “im going to convince you that hats are the best” and you’ll be like “but hats don’t look good on m-”
mark: “hats make anyone cute, and you’re already cute, they make you double cute ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, don’t tell anyone i just said that”
if mark is eating bread again and taeyong comes around, you always hide it for him and you and mark just smile like angels up at him
and taeyong knOWS something fishy is up but you two are sooooo darn adorable
but also you text mark to eat dinner until he sends you photo-proof he did
“if you write a book and they turn it into like a cute cartoon movie - i want to voice a character”
“i,,,,haven’t even written the book yet,,,,”
“mark lee - i know you’re capable of it and you will do it. just promise me i can voice someone.”
when no ones around mark will kiss you, but it’s always fast and just a little peck
and you have to pull him back in by the collar or something because c’mon no one is watching,,,,,
the amount of times you’ve done something cute like peck his nose and mark has hid himself behind a book is uncountable
face masks with mark while you’re quizzing each other for tests
jaehyun told you mark sleep talks and once said he’d like to marry you
and you were like oh and mark was like “jeffery, i will ship you to canada where the moose will get you”
^the most threatening thing mark lee has ever said. probably
you both like cold weather,,,,and tbh am i saying hot-chocolate dates in cozy sweaters ,,,,,,,, hell yES
i think mark tries to hide it,, but he’s just as excited about holiday’s as little kids are hehe
you have this habit that if you’re talking about something and mark scrunches his nose, you scrunch yours
and he’s like hey!!! that’s my signature face and you’re like you gotta kiss me to get it back!!
(he does kiss you ,,,, after pulling up his hood to hide you two like pleASE mark lee,,,)
sometimes, you and him volunteer together instead of going on dates and johnny is like that’s wild,,,,yall are like mr and mrs obama and mark is like that makes no sense and johnny is just like i love my giving children
you and mark looking at each other like what is happening
skyping mark’s family and everyone keeps wanting to talk to you and mark is like hi hello im here it’s me your son - ok fine i get it my s/o is cuter than me,,,
cuddling!!!! is super rare but also super amazing!!!! and mark is embarrassed for the first 5 minutes but then it’s just holding you close, lazily looking at you scroll through your phone and then mumbling “i love you,,,” into your hair
mark secretly tries to get better at claw machines to impress you on dates to the arcade
totally tries to be subtle,,,,but you can see from the corner of your eye that he’s staring when you’re just reading or fixing a strand of your hair
tbh mark lee has major heart eyes for you,,,,,,,,,as described by ten
mark actually teaches you to do more chores and you’re like babe,,,,whY and he’s like a messy dorm is horrible we’re basically living in small closets
he’s the kind of boyfriend that just makes you a better person,,,,it’s really refreshing
you guys have inside jokes and sometimes it’s hard to hide so you have to bury your face in mark’s arm or something to not laugh out loud and sometimes he has to bury his face in your hair
“haechan wants us to take more photos together”
“ok, let’s take one!”
“ok come over he- why are you wearing my maple leaf sweater”
“to show support for my boyfriend :-)”
mark keeps finding little notes in his bags and books from you, reminding him that you love him and he keeps them all in a small tin jar
sometimes he doesn’t know how you’re so cute - it seems impossible
holding hands under the table when you and all of nct is out for lunch???? yes
(does doyoung catch you, but just wink and pretend he didn’t much to mark’s utter embarrassment- also yes)
Give me a nice, Wholesome AU™ where Vlad ~somehow~ stops being a super-creep and agrees to mentor Danny– not because he wants to marry his mom and make him his son, but because he genuinely just wants to help another halfa out since HE didn’t have help way back when.
(Also for angst you could throw in a bit of “plus I feel responsible, because without the research we did in college, your parents would never have made their portal in the first place” or “I feel responsible because I kiiiinda pissed off a bunch of ghosts and all they know is ‘the halfa did it’ so that maaaybe why you’ve been seeing more ghost activity, idk lol.”)
Anyways give me an AU where we’ve got Vlad and Danny training in the basement at 1 am and Vlad’s trying to incorporate Danny’s school curriculum into the training because GOD KNOWS when he’d actually find time for THAT.
“Wait, can I try again? Just one more! One more run through…” Danny says, looking at Vlad with scorch marks on his face that have already begun to heal.
“Daniel, we’ve been at this for hours,” Vlad says, running a hand through his messy, singed hair. “I think that’s as good as it’s going to get tonight.”
“No!” says Danny, but quickly checks his volume, “No. Please, I… but I worked so hard on this power…if I could just–”
“And I know you did.” Vlad says, walking over to him, “I’m proud of how far you’ve come Daniel, but even halfas get exhausted.” He places his hands on Danny’s shoulders and the boy seems to consider this for a moment. But in the end…
“Just one more.”
“You’re gonna be on all those business trips, we won’t meet up again for a month!”
“Fine.” Vlad relents, “Just one more drill. But after that you’ll need your rest.”
Vlad starts up the machines again as Danny gets into a ready position.
“Remember to breathe.” says Vlad as the starting lights blink down in sequence. He uses his own power to bring up a noise-reducing barrier around the training area.
The first target pops out of the wall, close to the ceiling, and Danny flies up to meet it with an ecto-energized punch. The next one appears from the floor, so Danny blasts it with a basic beam. Once Vlad feels he’s got a rhythm he starts the study session again.
“What is the smallest group of biological classification?” He asks, watching his form carefully. Danny rolls out of the way of a hostile drone but still is able to answer.
“And the largest?” Vlad observes Danny blasting the drone.
“How many chromosomes does an individual human have?” Vlad continues. Danny goes intangible to avoid some debris.
“46.” He’s not missing a beat.
“What are the three major parts of a cell?” Two more hostile drones join the fray, and the young halfa starts to falter.
“The membrane, the, uh, cytoplasm, and the nucleus.”
“Is the cell membrane nonpermeable?”
“No,” Danny takes a couple heavy breaths, “It’s semipermeable.”
Vlad pauses upon reading the next one.
“What are the physical or chemical factors in genetic mutations called?”
“M… Mutagens.” Danny swallows dryly, his gaze shifting to the portal at the end of the room.
“What is the phase most cells spend the majority of their time in?”
“Crud, uh…” A drone explodes too close to Danny and he throws up his arms, forgetting to go intangible. The smoke makes his throat burn.
“… Interphase?” He finally coughs out.
“Correct. Pay attention now…”
Seven smaller drones appear from all directions, intent on overwhelming the young halfa. Danny flies up and ecto-punches through the highest one, then grabs it, somersaults, and throws it into the one directly below.
“Good!” Vlad says, standing up in his excitement. They both notice the other 5 drones coming in fast.
“What is the functional unit of heredity?”
“What’s the what of what?!?” Danny blurts out between blasting with one hand and swinging a panicked punch with the other.
“Get higher, try splitting!” Vlad says, abandoning the study guide and moving closer to the battlefield should his assistance be required.
Danny flies almost as high as he can go without phasing through the ceiling. He manages to get some distance between himself and the three remaining drones, but they are close behind.
Quickly he closes his eyes and grits his teeth, trying with all his might to imagine himself splitting into two entities.
“Okay, one more try.” he says to himself, “Kinda like Mitosis…” Somewhere in the back of his mind he can hear Vlad saying something, but he forces that away to keep his focus on the task at hand. Slowly Danny begins to feel what he can only describe as a peeling sensation– as if his “cells” were dividing in such a way that reminded him of when he would peel glue off his skin in elementary school– starting from his wispy tail, creeping up to where his legs should be…
Suddenly, a drone’s blast hits him squarely in the chest. Danny’s eyes snap open, all concentration lost. Belatedly he realizes his tail had reformed after having been split into two. A familiar pink beam takes out the offending drones.
“Danny!” Vlad says, eyes still glowing red, “Are you alright?”
“Yeah,” Danny says as he floats down sullenly, “I’ll heal.” Vlad reaches out to guide him towards the spare workbench they use as a first aid station.
“Better put the salve on it just to be safe.” Vlad says. Danny sits down and watches Vlad take out the special formula he made in his own lab back in Wisconsin, then tosses himself back to lay on the bench.
“ARGH! I was SO close! Right? Was I close? Because it felt like I was close…”
“You were.” says Vlad, “But I think you should stick to the exercises I showed you while I’m gone.” He transforms and makes a few duplications to demonstrate, starting slow but getting faster with each iteration.
“Who knows, by the time I get back you may be splitting in circles around me.” Danny looks up and realizes all the Vlads are literally standing around him in a circle and laughs.
“Ha! So you’re making the jokes now?” He says as Vlad pulls it together.
“Believe it or not, my wit may be used to humor us both.”
“Pfft. Some wit. That was real 'cheesy’, Wisconsin Ghost.” Danny snickers at his own quip and Vlad rolls his eyes.
“You’re never going to let that go, are you?”
“Nope!” Danny says, “Say, what was that last question? On the guide?”
“The functional unity of heredity.”
“Geez that’s a lot of syllables for one thing.”
“Do you know the answer?”
“Uh…” Danny thinks for only a moment. Without the distraction of the fight, he quickly grasps the question.
“Oh! It’s genes!”
“Correct again, Little Badger.” Vlad says, handing off the small salve tin. “I think you will do well on the test tomorrow.”
“Thanks.” Danny says, detransforming. He yawns as his exhaustion catches up with him. Courteously, Vlad lends him a hand.
Sorry I’ve been so inactive the last couple of days… I’ve had a mild case of art block..
sooo to kick myself out of it I drew the start of an older danny au where instead of going to college after high school he sticks around FentonWorks and helps his parents out.
At this point he’s had some time to become more friendly with his ex-enemies and to learn more about his ghost half, which resulted in him becoming a bit more ghostly- and now that his secret is out to his parents, he works as kind of a researcher/intermediary for ghost-human relations.
but mostly I just wanted to draw a dorky older Danny wearing some of those classy fenton goggles lol
Non powered AU: Steve is a former soldier, Tony is just rich and smart, not MCU level rich/brilliant. I honestly just wanted to write something Indiana Jonesy so here it is lol there will be close to fifteen chapters if not more to this story.
THIS FIC IS COMPLETED! *********************
The summer of his sophomore year of college, Tony Stark is dropped at a Stark Industries archaeological dig site in South America so he can “learn a little about the world” and “gain some perspective”.
The first day there, Tony ruins his $200 shoes, his favorite pants and breaks his sunglasses, and is ready to call his dad and demand to go home. But then former soldier- turned- archaeologist Steve Rogers steps up and teases him about being a “spoiled brat” while smiling in a way that makes Tony melt right into the ground, and he (naturally) decides to stay for the summer.
The first awkward meeting turns into a summer full of flirty looks, stolen kisses, and teasing touches and Tony falls in love. By the end of the summer he is ready to give Steve everything, but then Steve decides to pack up and leave for a bigger dig site in China, leaving a short message about “something better coming up” and “can’t miss out on this” and he “knows Tony will understand”.
Fast forward ten years and Tony has taken over the company after his parents death, only dates brunettes and redheads, and hasn’t thought about archeological sites or archeologists for years. And then he stumbles across the file for the old dig site, which is still being funded by Stark Industries. He hops on a plane, determined to visit the camp and shut it down once and for all, but is shocked to discover that what had been a boring dig uncovering a village has grown into the discovery of a temple with precious artifacts being found every day.
A security team was hired to protect the staff from bandits trying to steal the gold, and when Tony demands to meet the commander, he comes face to face with Steve Rogers all over again– except Steve is bearded and bigger and way more dangerous than he used to be, and Tony hates how much he likes it.
When the camp comes under attack, Steve jumps into action, snatching Tony and running away into the jungle to try to escape and they end up just trying to stay alive as they work their way towards a safe airfield.
Long days and longer nights together bring back all those old feelings, and Steve finds himself trying to coax Tony into getting closer even as Tony tries his hardest to keep away.
As they get farther from the bandits, they get closer to something real between them, and Steve takes a risk, asks the man he never stopped loving to stay, to give them another chance.
Will Tony say yes? Or after all these years is his heart buried too far for the soldier-turned- archaeologist-turned-mercenary to find it?
Summary: Moral of the story? Don’t fuck with Jeon Jungkook or else you’ll end up ruining your perfect attendance to chase his coattails.

Review: OH. MY. GOD. IF YOU HAVE NOT READ
THIS PLEASE STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND READ. IT. RIGHT. NOW. Okay. Okay. I’m
calm. This is probably my all-time fave Taekook fic or at least in the top 3. I
stayed up till 3am to finish this amazing piece of perfection.
I really love your blog! Could you do Shinee as college students or their study habits?
hi anon! i love YOU
everyone automatically assumed he was an upperclassman even as a freshman
looks serious and pensive when he wears his glasses, still a dork tho
always in sweats bc he likes to be comfy
never has meals??? someone pls swipe him
never on campus bc naptime
can catch him in the library tho he’s that kid trying to unwrap and eat a granola bar in the quiet part of the lib
he would be embarrassed but otherwise his stomach will make whale mating calls and a crinkling wrapper is the lesser evil by far
sick of hearing “working at starbucks” jokes bc he’s liberal arts
actually is part-time barista at starbucks on campus tho
always has at least two essays to write at all times but always chilling until deadlines
around finals: “can you snort coffee”
so sleep deprived that he is on another plane of existence (”i can hear my heartbeat and i don’t think that’s something that should be happening”)
wears sunglasses everywhere and people think it’s because he’s just constantly hungover but no sometimes he just closes his eyes to nap for a few secs without anyone noticing
go to every single event where they bring puppies to campus for stress relief
has a blanket and does work/read outside when the weather’s warm
will turn down going out to finish homework….. and actually do homework
but also bingewatches netflix like it’s his job
does not realize that sometimes he looks at the prof too intensely and like won’t blink??? for a really long time and they are sweating
always featured in the uni brochure looking fly as hell (he keeps all of them and posts them on his wall but in an aesthetic way)
meticulous color coded notes!!! is he a person or a typewriter
sticks out his tongue when he’s concentrating on studying
is always wearing some kind of school merch srsly the bookstore gets most of their money from choi sales
also has a lot of other university merch bc he traded with friends
a campus tour guide
he knows all the history behind the buildings and when they were built and just wants the incoming students to feel welcome
there is a GIANT blown up picture of him in the welcome center of him screaming at one of the football games
he’s very proud of it and has taken a pic in front of it imitating himself (it’s his pro pic he’s never going to change it)
always looks a little harassed bc he is once again late it’s just who he is as a person
can never remember where his classes are and it’s the end of the semester omg
his phone background is his schedule
eats an obscene amount in dining halls
never raises his hand but when the prof calls on him bc they don’t think he’s paying attention he has really profound answers
when he was a frosh he had a legit map bc he was trying to find his building and a senior actually stopped and asked him if he was lost and helped him like he looked that helpless and sometimes he flashbacks to that moment randomly and it’ll probably haunt him for the rest of his life
since a lot of people are requesting college AUs i’m thinking of maybe doing a more extended version for each member later on!
I’ve been having these marathons every week where I just collect as much fanfics as I can. The result? Folders full of bookmarks. Like, not the AO3 bookmarks, but I made actual Chrome folders with bookmarks and… you get the point.
This is unnecessary, but if you’re a beginner in the bts-fanfic-world, I think this list might help you?
These are strongly recommended fics from me. Various ships. All gay, obviously… all on AO3. Most of these, you probably know.
I don’t own any of them! I just think they’re wonderful…
If any of you need more fic recs (I take any ship, I haven’t done all ships but I have some for underrated ships, so), just go on and send me an ask, I guess. And if you’ve read all of these, go send me an ask if you’d like. (I got tons of Namjin)
I also rec sin, though my folder for sin isn’t very organized so it’ll take a while.
If you want a small (very small) list of sad fics, just ask.
Okay, here it is!
[M] Beta Tau Sigma by bazooka pairing: namjin (college/university au, frat au) summary: A collection of events occurring within (and without) the walls of the Beta Tau Sigma fraternity house. At Beta Tau Sigma, there are only a few rules: 1) have a declared major in the College of Music; 2) keep your GPA above a 3.4; 3) don’t let Taehyung into the liquor cabinet; 4) don’t fuck up with Kim Seokjin. The rest is all fine print. me: i cried when it finished. need i say more? fucking amazing. love it. cry with me.
debated on posting these but I like the last drawing a lot but refuse to clean it up more LOL This is a Jock/Nerd college roomie AU that Rai and I jammed about today. Like all AUs its self indulgent I just want… jock chariot….
For the college AU what's everyone's sexuality? (Sorry I'm super confused when it comes to sexuality)
Ok here we go: Hamilton - not quite sure, he probably is bi but denies it Laurens - gay Lafayette - pretty gay Mulligan - pretty gay Jefferson - bi Madison - hetero (he just likes to cuddle with Thomas I guess) Angelica - hetero Eliza - hetero (but not quite sure yet lol) and Peggy - bi, but more gay (lol) Maria - nnnnot sure yet too srry
..I think I forget someone but I think the rest is all hetero
So um, more on that college AU I was talking about lol
-dr.flug is the messy one, Black hats side is always spotless and some times he gets very irritated when flugs stuff gets on his side of the room
-black hat snuck his pet snake in and it’s now his and dr.flug’s child. They love him. :)
very naughty one-shot that contains size!kink and slut shaming
Kyungsoo likes that his boyfriend, Jongin, is taller than him. He especially likes that his boyfriend is bigger in another area as well. This leads him to ask Jongin if he would be willing to indulge him a bit of play they haven’t tried out yet.
Kyungsoo’s birthday party was not going well. Jongin had already caught him glancing at him once and Kyungsoo had drunk too much for being a lightweight. So when everyone sends sober Jongin to drive Kyungsoo back home, he dreads their alone time. The night is quickly progressing to be a trial of suppressed desires and unspoken need. Will Jongin finally give Kyungsoo his birthday gift?
There is one chapter with topsoo (chapter 3) but that is the only one, other chapters are bottom!soo ^^
Kyungsoo and Jongin know they are quickly journeying into dangerous territory, because Jongin’s best friend is Park Chanyeol, openly homophobic and sworn enemy of Kyungsoo’s best friend, Byun Baekhyun. They go there anyway.
naughty two-shot neighbors!AU that contains infidelity (Soo is married and cheats on his wife with Jongin but who can blame him lol)
After marrying his wife, Kyungsoo decides to move to a quiet town where he can build a family. The neighbors are pleasant and the community seems welcoming, a perfect home for newlyweds. However, this all comes into conflict once the married man begins to notice the young man who lives next door.
uncompleted smutty chaptered OfficeWorkers!AU (I am not losing hope that this amazing fanfic will be finished one day)
Jongin and Kyungsoo are two normal office workers. They don’t know each other. They’re strangers. Strangers that happen to meet at a club late a night as they searched for the same thing - sex. It happens once. It happens twice and they’re hooked. Whenever they meet, not having sex seems to be impossible.
More under the cut because there are four pages total and I don’t want to take up your whole dash lol This was funnier when I first drew it all out but I dunno XD; Oikawa makes it so easy to make fun of him and I really love characters like that for some reason.
