can you do the neighbor au for seokmin, jihoon, and minghao?? only if you have time of course ^_^
joshua, mingyu & seungkwan can be found (here) ~ wonwoo, hoshi & seungcheol can be found (here) ~ [this post mentions snakes so if you’re scared of them be careful~!]
is barely ever actually at his apartment
like he’s the kind of person that has a super active social life so he’s probably spending the night over at a different friend’s house every day of the week or getting home at like weird hours of the night
but the landlord doesn’t care because hey in the end he makes rent and that’s what matters
like his door is full of take out flyers and sometimes even packages stand out on his mat for like 3-4 days at a time because like ????? does he even come home like ????? ever
inside his apartment though he’s got a lot of stuff because he never really throws anything out ?? like he’s got CD’s from when he was kid, boxes full of comic books and old action figures, and thrown over his couch is a blanket he got second-hand from hoshi
and it’s really kinda cool though because he has bookshelves full of trinkets and books and photo albums
and on his wall he has photos of singers and rock bands he looks up to
and since this is an au, seokmin’s closet looks like you took it from the nineties lots of dad caps, flannels, and ripped jeans because tbh if seokmin was going to have an aesthetic as just a regular dude living on his own he’d probably keep up with his band days and be the type to own a ‘nirvana’ t-shirt
does weird stuff when he’s home alone like sit on top of the kitchen table and eat take-out and drink his soda from something that looks more like a vase than it does a cup
and you don’t even know who seokmin is. you don’t even think the apartment next door to yours has anyone living in it
until you’re over at a party a couple of blocks down hosted by your friend seungcheol and somehow you get involved in this crazy game of twister
and it gets down to you and this boy,,,,,, who is kinda cute with his pretty half moon smile and really big grin
and you’re supposed to get your hand over his and like flip yourself around but you end up wobbling and falling forward,,,,,,,,RIGhT ontop of this cute boy
whom you’ve never meet
and you’re like !!!!!!!!! sfhksda im so sorry!!!!! but you’re also laughing because god how awkward to fall on someone during twister
but the boy is just laughing too and he’s like “don’t be sorry, it’s my pleasure ^^” and you’re like your pleasure??? and he’s like “ive never had someone so good looking fall ontop of me before ;)”
and you playfully like nudge his arm before giggling into your palm
and then you hear seungcheol’s voice like “hey lovebirds get off the twister mat so we can restart the game!!!!”
and you flush red when you realize you two,,,,,,are just laying there in front of everyone at this party
so you get up and offer your hand to the boy who gladly accepts
and the rest of the party you two stick together and talk and you find out his name is seokmin!!! and that he’s really really hilarious and good at body gags and puns
and he’s so totally your type and to your surprise seokmin is like “THIS is gonna sound corny but,,,,,,,, you’re totally my type,,,,,,”
and you’re like omg no way that’s what i was thinking and you two burst into giggles again
and when it’s time to go,,,,,,,,,seokmin is like “let me make sure you get home safe!!” and you’re like oh sure i live a couple blocks down and he’s like whaT a coincidence me TOO
and as you’re walking you and him are talking more and more and tbh you stop and you’re like “i don’t wanna leave,,,,,,,,i wanna spend some more time but since i have to go let me do this-”
and you lean up to kiss his cheek and seokmin is like grinning and he’s like i don’t want you to go either
and as you continue walking he holds your hand and you smile, but you’re so happy because finally you went to a party and you acTUALLY met someone sweet
and you’re like ‘oh this is my building here!!” and seokmin looks up and he’s like ,,,,,,,,,,,, wait
i live here too
and you’re like what oh my god what floor
and then he says the same floor as you and you’re like NO WAY WHAT ARE WE NEIGHBORS
and yes,,,,,,,, turns out that apartment you thought was always empty is actually seokmin’s apartment
and you’re both staring in awe until seokmin is like
“hey maybe that means fate brought us together for a reason,,,,,,literally together because we’re neighbors and also because i like you let me take you out on a real date tomorrow?”
always worn-out and the kind of neighbor who would fall asleep in the elevator ride if it weren’t so short
you can tell by his constant yawning that he probably spends a lot of the night up doing work,,,,and like his clothes never look ironed and if you see him going to take the garbage out or get the mail he’s like got a face-mask on and the most sleepy expression
but also he always lugs around a guitar case twice his size and a shoulder bag that seems stuffed to the brim with notebooks of all different sizes
and he’s respectful, nodding to elders and things like that but mostly he doesn’t speak much to others
and it’s probably because he’s got one million things on his mind but also,,,,,,,,,i repeat: tired
his apartment reflects his hard work like the one thing that’s most noticeable in the entire apartment is that his living room has a huge desk with dual monitors and a shelf stuffed with books on musical composition and journals full of songs and lyrics
and jihoon has pens in coffee mugs in the kitchen, paper crumpled near the foot of his bed (a bed he never uses since he falls asleep in the computer chair or on the carpet beside his desk)
and im not saying this au brings back ponytail!jihoon,,,,,,,but that’s exactly what im saying
and there’s a point in the week when you have some trouble sleeping so to calm down you make some tea and go out on your balcony to sit in the night air
and that’s when you hear it,,,,, the soft strums of a guitar,,,,,, then a sudden stop,,,,,, and then the guitar again
and you look over and for the first time, even though it’s a bit dark you can make a figure out on the balcony beside yours and you tell yourself “isn’t that jihoon’s apartment?”
because although you don’t talk much to him, you know him by first name because your neighbors and when he’d moved in you had stopped by to welcome him and he’d told you his name
but it’s weird,,,,,you’ve never seen him outside his apartment
and you never knew that he,,,,,played the guitar so well like you’d seen the case and assumed he liked music but the melody you’re hearing now is absolutely gorgeous
but then it stops suddenly and you hear him grumble a loud that it’s no good
and before you can really think you get up and go “i really like it!”
and jihoon’s head snaps up an he’s looking at you from above the fence of his balcony and he’s like ,,,, “o-oh uh im sorry for disturbing you ill be quieter!”
but you’re shaking your head and you’re like “no, i really liked what you played, is it your own?”
jihoon nods, looking shyly down at his hands because gjfsgfs he didn’t know anyone was listening ,,,,,
but you just smile and go “it’s pretty, i would want to hear more.”
and jihoon seems hesitant, but it’s like 2am and you’re the first person he’s talked to in days since working on this song so he asks if you’d really want to hear what else he has and you say you do
so he plays it,,,,,,, and you close your eyes so entranced by the sound
and it’s enough to even make you feel a bit sleepy and when it’s over you give him a thumbs up from your balcony and he just shyly hides his head, but he’s smiling
and you say goodnight as you go back inside
and as your head hits your pillow, the sound of jihoon’s guitar fills your memory and you fall asleep easily
while jihoon sits outside on the balcony, holding his guitar and thinking about how breathtaking you looked standing there, eyes closed, with the moon as your backdrop and you and him as the only ones awake in that moment ,,,,,
honestly,,,,,,,is he a model????? why does a model live in this building???? it must be because the rent isn’t that bad,,,,,,,
jkjkjk but seriously everyone is always in awe of minghao,,,,, because like is it humanly possible to look that good??? no matter what??? because he can come out in his pajamas and still look like he’s walking the runway at seoul fashion week good lord
but also,,,,,he’s just a sweet oblivious kid
and everyone whose older has the strong urge to offer him food and take care of him like maybe it’s because he’s so tall and thin but also just looking at him makes someone want to take care of him,,,,,he’s just so endearing
all the neighbors invite him over for dinner tbh he never even has to buy food
except jun will come over and literally eat every snack minghao has bought in the past week and minghao is looking at the wrappers all over his living room floor like: jun ge,,,,,,,,,,,,you’re a punk you know that right,,,,, (same goes for hoshi hyung who does the SAME damn thing some1 save minghao)
his apartment is pretty nice though,,,,like he’s got this nice aesthetic going with fresh flowers in the kitchen and lucky chinese charms hanging from the walls ,,,,,,, lots of tea and other herbs his mom sent him from china
it always smells really good in his house
but the coolest thing and like,,,,,,,ok seriously just think about this: minghao,,,,,,,,,,with a pet snake
and he has like a whole tank just for his pet,,,,who he named sunflower in chinese,,,,because of it’s yellow skin,,,,and when you first come in you’re like huh do you own a liz- THAT IS A SNAKE
but minghao love sunflower, he can take her out and wrap her around his shoulders and he’s like ‘she’s a shy thing, come and hold her’
also idk i just think he’d look so cool with a snake ,,,,,
but yes you find out one day about the snake because minghao gets in the elevator with you and he’s holding a box,,,,,,and the box just says,,,,,,mice
and you’re like “are those really,,,,,mice inside there?” and minghao smiles and he’s like “yes! for my sunflower!” and you’re like ,,,,,,,,,your sunflower???? and in your head you’re like is that his s/o??? why would they need mi-
and minghao is like “you wanna see her?” and you’re like ,,,,, “her?” and minghao is like “yeah!! sunflower!!” and tbh you’re like confused because you know minghao as he’s your neighbor, but you’ve always been scared to talk to him because lmao he’s beautiful and now he’s just inviting you to his house???? to see ‘her’?????
but the elevator is open and minghao is pulling you out by your wrist and he’s so excited that before you can even say much
you’re following him into his living room and he’s like “there she is~!” and you see it,,,,,,,the tank,,,,,,,,,,and then the little head of a S na ke ,,,,, and you’re like “t-t-t-that’s sunflower?” and minghao is like yep! and this is her meal!!”
and you figure out that whats in the box,,,,and why is was for sunflower,,,,,, and you might not watch sunflower ‘enjoy her meal’ but minghao just claps and is like “she’s pretty right??”
and you’re,,,,,,you know,,,,,,shell shocked to say the least but you’re like “yes,,,,,,she’s a pretty color,,,,,,” and minghao grins and he’s like “she also does a good job of keeping jun out of my house,,,,,he’s not fond of her.”
and you assume jun must be a friend of his but you laugh because that’s actually smart, say you have a pet snake and see how many of your friends refuse to ever come over again
but minghao turns to you and he’s like “usually people are running down the hall by now. good job.” and he ruffles your hair and you’re like,,,,,a bit embarrassed
and minghao is like “do you have any pets” and you guys talk about it until you say you have to go and minghao is like ok,,,,,you should come over and play with sunflower sometime!!!!
and you’re like gulping because how does one play with a snake,,,,and minghao can read your expression which just makes him laugh even more and he ruffles your hair again (he must really like doing that hmmm) and is like “don’t worry, ill be beside you to supervise!”
and you know,,,,,,,,why not like when will you get the chance to hang with a snake again so you’re like “sure!! just call me when you’re free~”
and minghao is like “oooo really?” and you’re like “sunflower,,,,,,,,seems nice,,,,,” and minghao grins and he’s like “i knew i liked you, sunflower will like you too~”
and you’re like well one you’re like oh you liked me
but two now you have a play date with a snake,,,,,,,,,,,,,it’ll be worth it though
because one date with the snake but also,,,,,a date with xu minghao tbh i would sell my soul for that so snakes aren’t all that bad LOL
Please do another Haikyuu Idols au but this time with all the setters 🙏
Haikyuu Setters Idol!AU
I’m sorry it took so
long. I didn’t know that the setters would give me difficulty imagining them as
an idol group. (Also because you said all… OTL.) BUT HERE IT IS!!!! ( I included members who are setters but haven’t been animated yet… so I guess this contains spoilers?)
Disclaimer: Once again, my
references are from K-pop, than J-pop, since I know more about that. Concepts
and songs were by groups I am familiar with. If the captain’s one had been done
while I was crying about Boys24, this one is brought to you by PD101S2.
What can I say, this group is just full of
pretty people. ALL ULZZANGS I TELL YOU!
This group also consists of mostly people
who project quiet, chic, and sassy image and they have been called the ‘Flower
Boy-dols’, ‘Model-dols’, ‘Sassy-dols’ and all other variants that people can
think off just to emphasize how beautiful (and sassy) they are.
A lot of buzz had already surrounded this
group even before their debut, because some of them have experienced fame in
different forms. Fangirls are easily baited. One look at the boys and they
never looked back.
However, this was kind of a double edged
sword, because most people thought that they’re all just pretty faces with no actual
talent to back them up. (Haters do say the meanest things. They are most DEFINITELY
WRONG of course.)
But that was all behind them now. Their
fanbase is as strong as ever and they’re gaining more as they promote.
So like, I kind of visualize that their
company introduced the members of the group by dropping little hints/’facts’
about the member all throughout the day, and will end with that member’s teaser
video and picture that details his profile.
Then surprise, surprise! After that short
teaser video, they actually have a short intro video, recorded with V-Live.
Imagine being a fangirl and doing this for
10 days, every other day, just to die and resurrect again for the rest of the
Then they update with the album highlights,
and MV teasers up until their official debut.
When the MV had been released, and all of
them have been introduced, they do a group v-live to formally introduce
themselves as a group, inviting the support and love of the people.
Semi Eita – Eita is the Leader of the group. He also
serves as the lead dancer and is mostly responsible for overlooking the member’s
activities. Eita started his career as back up dancer to some solo female
artists, but he didn’t hesitate to join the agency when they recruited him. He’s
the kind of leader that doesn’t really step into the spotlight and is just
content with letting the other member’s do their thing but knows when to put
his foot down. Always thanks fans for their gifts and for watching their live
He’s like EXO’s Suho
mixed with Ikon’s Junhoe. (IDK why…)
Sugawara Koushi – Koushi is the
actual eldest of the group and serves as the lead vocalist as well as the Face
of the Group. Started as an ulzzang with an already good amount of followers,
and he has the largest fanbase among all of them because of this. He was
discovered when he heeded the request of a fan to sing even just a short line
of a song. But since he likes to go the extra mile, he also played the guitar. Though
he may look innocent, fans are well aware of how much sass this boy possess, apparent
with his responses to fan questions over twitter and during fan meetings.
EXO’s Luhan is who
comes to mind for idol!Suga
Echigo Sakae – Echigo completes
the hyung line. He is the main vocals of the group because of his smooth RnB
vibes. Echigo competed in a singing contest organized by the agency and he won
2nd place over all, but it was enough to secure him a spot as a
trainee. He’s a man of few words, but do not mistake his quietness for he is a
certified deadpan snarker, to his members as well as the fans. He also likes to
tease the ‘middle children’ line, especially when their maknae does evil things
Echigo is based off of
MBLAQ’s G.O, mixed with Big Bang’s Taeyang.
Akaashi Keiji – Keiji is the main
dancer of the group. Develops their group’s choreography with Shigeru, with
Semi occasionally lending a hand. Has quite a following, especially when he
made waves as the ‘boy who really danced well’ in one of the biggest dance
studios dance class video. It took a while for agency reps to scout him since he
doesn’t really want to become an idol and was content in dancing, but when he
assisted one of the dance instructor for another idol group’s choreo, somehow
changed his mind. The long suffering responsible brother, despite being the
actual youngest in the middle children line.
I would liken Keiji to
Kozume Kenma – Kenma is the shy
and young, lauded by fans as ‘genius producer-dol’ of the group. He’s very
skilled in song writing and composing, and most of the group’s songs are
produced by him, with members lending their hand in the lyrics. Sometimes, it’s
the other way around. The members collaborate with writing the lyrics, then
Kenma makes a song out of it. Mostly works with a piano, but asks for Suga’s
help for guitars and Shirabu’s help when it comes to percussions. If he had the
choice, he would just stay inside the studio and make songs, but such is not
the case, so he serves as a sub-vocal (only because he doesn’t want to be in
the center of performances as much). He’s close to Keiji because he’s the only
one who’s is warm but quiet among his same age peer.
The best reference I
have for Kenma is EXO’s D.O
Yahaba Shigeru – Shigeru acts as the
group’s dancer and their unofficial variety representative. Before this though,
he was thought to be the second Koushi, because he exudes the soft grace, that
isn’t far behind his hyung. All this was shattered when they guested at a
variety show and became a complete fountain of laughter, because of his witty
comments and clever comeback lines. Often ‘butt’s heads’ with Shirabu and created
the Wise Guy to Shirabu’s Straight Man. And they have created memes fans call
the “Shi-Shi’s” because of this. He is also game with cross-dressing, since he
admits that its part of his charm.
SHINee’s KEY is my
reference for Shigeru.
Shirabu Kenjiro – Shirabu comes from
a family of actors, and was actually a child actor before he made the decision to
train and become an idol instead, in his desire to create a name for his own.
It wasn’t unexpected for him to be in the spotlight with the rest of his
family, but people mostly expected him to follow his parents’ and brother’s
footsteps. But since his history with acting is not forgotten, he’s often
tapped to act in productions but he’s only accepted minor roles, since he wants
to focus more on his idol activities. He blends in well with the group and
lends his support as vocals.
Think of Infinite’s L,
as the image he projects, but he actually has BTOB’s Sungjae’s playfulness in
Miya Atsumu – Miya is the main
rapper of the group and the one that completes the middle children line. Has a
love-hate relationship with fans because of his resting bitch face that he uses
to tease them with. But his performance on stage is something they all love
about him. Has a twin brother, who is his complete opposite and wants to be far
away from the spotlight as possible. Ever since the fans learned about this,
and how mature his brother is, they found a way to tease him back and called
them “The Prince and Pauper”, with Atsumu being the pauper, much to his
I think the resting
bitch face is a clue enough that EXO’s Kris is my reference for Atsumu.
Koganegawa Kanji – Kogane serves as
the second rapper of the group and is actually the older of the two members of
the maknae line. He is the tallest among the group, earning him the nickname ‘Super-Sized
Maknae’. He’s also painfully new in the idol industry, but his enthusiasm and
willingness to learn, as well as his hyung’s support, helped him become more
confident in his skills, as well as his presence in the group. Another variety
representative, because of his naivety and simple mindedness. Considered a 4D
member by the fans, but despite this, they all find him lovable because of his
energy and determination.
Kogane reminds me of
Kageyama Tobio – Tobio is the other
half of the maknae line, and is the actual maknae of the whole group. But fans
often mistake Kogane to be this, because Tobio is often too serious, and doesn’t
display maknae tendencies. Absolutely hates doing aegyo and claims that he doesn’t
know how. Its cringe worthy whenever he tries (and he tries really hard), but when
he’s not thinking about it though, it shows. Fans especially finds his squinting-pouty
face adorable. The official visual of the group, and not to be confused with
Koushi’s Face of the Group. They’re both considered visuals, but with different
image/projection (Koushi is the warm to Tobio’s cold). He’s a dedicated all-rounder,
although he usually plays more vocal parts.
Tobio’s reference is Nu’est’s
Minhyun (and I swoon)
Concept/s and Songs
This group started out safely enough with
songs that are influenced by jazz, like B.A.P’s
Coffee Shop and Where
are You, What are You Doing.
Then they delved into the more ‘pop’ side,
with concepts centered-around chic style and synchronized dance. Like Infinite’s Dashi Dorawa; BEAST’s Fiction;
EXO’s Call Me Baby.
The song that I seriously think fits them
the most is C-Clown’s Shaking Heart. I don’t know why but
it just does.
Other songs: Winner’s Really Really; VIXX’s
Error; Super Junior’s Devil.
Of course, they couldn’t escape doing cute
songs like SHINee’s Replay and Hello; Got7’s A;
Astro’s Breathless; Seventeen’s Mansae; lighthearted
songs like iKon’s #WYD; Super Junior’s No Other
and Why I Like You
For feel fest songs they have: BTS’ Spring
Day; Boys24’s Starlight; Infinite’s
Paradise; Nu’est’s Hello and Good Bye Bye; Winner’s Fool; and VIXX’s Only You.
Yeah… I guess that sums it up. Also note
that they’ve done plenty of share of covering girl group songs. Shigeru for
some reasons were able to rope most of the group, especially Suga. Once Suga
says they do it, they do it. They can’t refuse. It will be their end.
- Kicks out male members of the band because men are a pain in the ass, are not creative and there was too much testosterone. That’s right they felt their metal band had too much testosterone. - Get rid of the men because “women are creative sexual creatures.” - Has a band member who is just the band slut
- Literally just banging on instruments wildly while being preached at by a feminist. Only person playing anything that can be called music is the lone remaining male. Because fuck men…but we need someone who can play guitar though..
- Look at us we are women “based on a female religion” “which means get down and lick cunt.” - No seriously look at us we are women aren’t women great. - Eat each other out on stage and just stand around talking about sexual stuff they want to do to other women. Imagine the outrage if they were men doing the same thing.
- Atavists whose express goal is to be so regressive that they lick their own ass holes and have that be cool and normal. I’m not making this shit up.
- Not sure if this makes me angry because of the sexism…sad because of how unbearably idiotic humanity is capable of being or just plain embarrassed on their behalf and for all of metal.
- Feminists ruin everything. I think they owe metal an apology. While they are at it they should apologize to women for attempting to set them back so greatly in life and in metal.
Luke was currently practicing on his guitar the song that he was going to record with John when he came to your shared hotel room in about ten minutes. He had his eyes closed as he strummed to what had now become a familiar tune to your ears from the amount of times he had played the chords for the past few days. You admired how relaxed he looked as he lost himself in the music. It wasn’t often that you’d get to see all the stress and worry wash away from his face as well as his eyebrows not being furrowed from confusion or annoyance. You wished that he looked like this more. It made yourself feel relaxed as well to know that he was feeling alright. He had so much pressure on himself as a teenager with the constant media attention and fans just wanting to know what he was up to, not to mention the stress of the new album. You just couldn’t let such a beautiful sight go to waste. You pulled up your camera on your phone and faced it towards Luke, who was completely unaware of what you were doing. The room was silent other than Luke’s guitar playing, not wanting to disturb the peaceful and calm atmosphere. But of course it would be you to disrupt that atmosphere. SNAP. You cursed yourself in your head for not putting your phone on silent. You winced at the sound your camera made as it captured the picture of a relaxed Luke strumming his guitar. Luke stopped strumming and opened his eyes to see you lowering your phone down to your lap with a sheepish smile on your face. “Sorry, I just wanted to capture the moment,” you told him shyly. He just chuckled. “It’s alright, Princess.” You frowned. “You looked so relaxed though and I just ruined it.” He placed his guitar on the ground and rested it against the bedside table. He patted the space next to him. “Come here.” You stood up from your spot on the couch and walked over to the bed, sitting down right beside him. He put his arm around your back and pulled you to his side as you rested your head on his shoulder. His thumb stroked soothingly against your hip. “I’m always relaxed when I’m with you, Princess. You make me feel calm and at peace.” You kissed his neck. “I just don’t see you relaxed that often.” He kissed your head. “That’s because when you do see me, most of the time it’s from pictures or videos since you can’t travel with me as much, but when we’re together like this,” he squeezed you to his side, “I’m as at ease as I can be.” He smiled. You kissed him softly on the lips. “I love you.” “As I love you,” he whispered.
- is one of the most precious cinnamon rolls in the galaxy
- He’s a sucker for cute animals like that’s one of his biggest weaknesses
- Can fall in love with anyone in 0.4 seconds *cough*hansolo*cough*
- in modern Au he’d probably live in his aunt and uncle’s basement with his weird British friend (c3po) and c3po’s weird little blue haired boyfriend in a wheelchair (r2d2) because admit it, it’d be pretty cute
- Also he’d probably be part of Han’s garage band by being their guitarist (he takes better care of his guitar though)
- One word: Converse.
- looks up to his sister so much like wow
- he loves reading!!! Like!!! So much!! And learning! Learning and reading are the best things ever!
Here are the tiny, tiny pictures on the Homework sleeve. I tried to fix them up a little bit but the scanner I’m using is just not very good. The first one is Guy-Man singing with Darlin’.
Some burning questions I have about these that will probably never be answered: Is that baby Thomas with the long curly hair? What even is that third picture? Is that Guy-Man playing guitar in the last one? (I think it is, though.)
A. N. okay, how addicted am I to write the soulmate AU thing? well you know it’s bad when I make 3 in the same day. (just posted 2 though)
Pairing: Steve x reader (I’m sorry for almost always making Steve, but this was a request from a friend)
Warning: sad, feels and death. ;-;
Prompt: Soulmate AU, where the red strings do exist but only some people can see it and said people can untie someone’s strings or their own strings.
Red String of fate is, according to a myth, the gods tie an invisible red cord around the ankles of those that are destined to meet one another in a certain situation or help each other in a certain way. Often, in Japanese culture, it is thought to be tied around the little finger.
Another A. N. I know that it said that the red string of fate can’t be broken but hey, it’s a fan fiction. For better explanation visit this website X , so enjoy!
The first time y/n meet him was when she was assigned by her uncle, Fury, to watch him, get him used to the new century.
She accepted because it payed nicely and the job seemed kinda fun.
Steve Rogers isn’t the warmest person for the first few weeks, he kinda shut her out and sometimes gave a little bit of cold shoulders. But then he opened up to her and before she knew it, they were already best friends.
y/n is one of the gifted person to see the Red String of fate, she can cut someone’s string off but she rarely do that, because there’s a price to pay for it.
But then here she is, fake smiling at Steve’s and Sharon Carter’s joined hands, as they requested her to cut off their red strings because they loved each other and they didn’t want to be with their soulmates.
Seriously? it hurt. She developed feelings to the super soldier over the years they were best friends and it just.. kinda happen.
so.. let me just play the scene for you.
She turned to face Steve and smiled at him, her smile fall slightly at Sharon beside him, “yeah?”
“you can see the red strings right?” He asked,
y/n nodded at him, “yeah, why?”
“we want to ask you something.. can you cut off our red strings?” Sharon asked,
Her eyes widen, shocked at her, “..why?”
y/n isn’t mad at her, she is friends with Sharon and fully aware of the growing relationship between her and Steve. Then it just happened, they’re in a relationship. y/n can’t even count how many times she fake smiled at them and cried herself to sleep at night.
“we loved each other,” She said, “we don’t want to rely on the red strings,”
y/n stared at her, then at Steve, then to their joined hands, then at Sharon again, “when?”
“as soon as possible,” Steve said, “we’re going to be married,” he smiled as Sharon lifted her ringed hand,
“oh.. alright then,” y/n fake smiled again, “I’ll let you know when I can.”
“thank you, y/n.” Sharon said, “we asked the others ‘Gade’ but they didn’t want to,”
‘Gade’ is what do they call the people that can see the red strings, it’s from the word ‘Begavede’ from Danish, which means ‘gifted’.
“who did you ask?”
“Natasha, Pepper, Wanda, and Vision,” Steve said,
Of course they won’t.
“did they say why?”
“No, they don’t,” Steve said, “but each one of them said, ‘ask y/n’ or something along that line,”
“I should get going,” Sharon said, pecking Steve’s lips, “see you later!”
y/n nodded her head, “alright then,”
y/n watched as she left, leaving only Steve with her,
“look y/n.. I’m sorry I didn’t tell you about proposing..”
She smiled at him, “it’s alright” She chuckled, covering the heartache inside of her, “I’ll probably end up ruining the surprise to her,”
Steve smiled, “thank you, y/n.”
She stared at his blue eyes, the one she fall in love to, “do you love her?”
“yes of course,”
“then you pay me with that,” she said, “live happily with her,”
He stared at me and nodded his head happily, “you know, we haven’t hang out for a while,”
“yeah, maybe tomorrow? you have time?”
“sure, at your floor?”
did I not mention that y/n live in the Avengers tower? yeah, she worked as their personal doctor and assistant, she can somehow make Tony followed the rules and did not behave, so the Avengers hired her to keep them scheduled and stuff.
y/n raised an eyebrow at him, “you sure Sharon won’t get jealous?”
He laughed, “She knew that we’re best friends,”
I nodded, “yeah, tomorrow you all Avengers have a day off anyway,”
“alright then,” Steve said, squeezing her shoulder before walking away, “see you later,”
y/n walked to her floor and told FRIDAY to not let anyone get to her floor except Natasha and Wanda, she cried her heart out that night.
“what happened to you?” Steve asked, noticing her swollen eyes after crying all night.
“I watched sad movies all night long,” she lied smoothly, “and woke up like this.” she gestured to her face.
He stared at her with furrowed eyebrows, “you can tell me who make you cry.”
She chuckled and waved him off, “it’s not someone,” she lied again, “beside, you shouldn’t get too focused to me, try to do that to Sharon too.”
“you’re important to me, y/n,”
“so is Sharon,” she said, “okay, what do you want to do today?”
“what do you want to do?” he emphasized,
They ended up watching many Disney movies that day, from the classical ones to the 3d ones,
“Let it goo~” she sang as the credit for Frozen showed,
“Can’t hold it back anymore~” Steve continued, making her laugh.
“I think we’re finished,” She said, “my eyes are kinda sore”
“damn right,” He said,
she gasped, “Language!” She giggled as she dodged a pillow getting thrown at her,
“well.. I want to show you something,” She smiled at him, “I learned to mashup some songs together,”
“I’d love to hear it,” he smiled, he loved how you sing and played a music instrument along with it.
“alright,” she stood up and grabbed her guitar, it was coloured f/c and custom-made that Tony got for her first birthday since she worked for them, and sat on the floor in front of him,
“what is it?” Steve asked,
“just listen,” she grinned mysteriously, as she began to strum the guitar, “and I kinda changed the lyrics a bit,”
(A. N. Recommended song: X listen along with this and some lyrics were changed)
A dangerous plan, just this time A stranger’s hand clutched in mine
she sang slowly, enjoying the lyrics
I’ll take this chance, so call me blind I’ve been waiting all my life
she looked at Steve, as he closed his eyes to enjoy her song,
Please don’t scar this young heart Just take my hand
she stared at Steve closely, but quickly looked back to her guitar,
I was made for loving you Even though we may be hopeless hearts just passing through
she frowned a bit, but kept a smile on her face,
Every bone screaming I don’t know what we should do
All I know is, darling, I was made for loving you
she felt her eyes began to water, so she closed them,
Summer comes, winter fades Here we are just the same
she smiled slightly, slowing her guitar strum,
Don’t need pressure, don’t need change Let’s not give the game away
she furrowed her eyebrows a bit,
Just please don’t say you love me ‘Cause you don’t mean it the same way
She smiled as she sang her heart out,
Doesn’t mean my heart stops skipping when you look at me like that There’s no need to worry when you see just where we’re at
Just please don’t say you love me 'Cause you don’t mean it the same way
I closed my eyes again as more tears fell down my face again.
Please don’t go, I’ve been waiting so long Oh, I know that you don’t feel the same.. But I was made for loving you
She stared at the floor, as her tears dropped on it,
I was made for loving you Even though we may be hopeless hearts just passing through And… I don’t know what I should do.. All I know is, darling..
she paused as she strum her guitar one more time,
..I was made for loving you
She sang the last lyric and opened her eyes to see Steve’s eyes eyeing her worriedly,
she laughed, wiping the tears away, “sorry, got carried away.”
“yeah,” she said, “how was it?”
“good,” he paused, “-that’s an understatement, it’s amazing.”
“thanks,” she smiled sadly at him,
They stared at each other for a while before y/n walked to put back her guitar,
“I.. decided to do it today,” she turned to him,
“really? just let me call Sharon over-”
“no, no need,” she cut him off, “she didn’t have a soulmate,”
he stared at her, “alright then,”
“.. last question,” she asked him, making him look at her eyes, “do you love her?”
he stared at her, before answering, “yes,”
she smiled, “alright,” she grabbed a medium sized patterned box and gave it to him, “just think of this as a gift,”
he stared at the box, “you don’t need to-”
“yeah, I should.”
“fine, but don’t give me anymore gift,” he huffed,
“I can’t anyway,” she said, but before he could ask what she mean, she said again, “this is a weird question.. but can I kiss your cheek?” she sheepishly asked,
“yeah sure, you’re my friend.”
She quickly kissed his cheek, smiling slightly. “have a happy life with Sharon, name your daughter after me.” she said, making him chuckle
She smiled, as she closed her eyes and opened it again, revealing bright red eyes instead of e/c orbs, this means she had activated her ‘Gade’ mode.
“..I was made for loving you~”
she softly sang,
A tear rolled down her eyes, as she reached for his hand and quickly untie the string on it, at the same time Wanda ran into the room,
“Y/N NO!” she screamed, as y/n collapsed to the floor, Wanda fall to her knees instantly and tears began to fall down her face.
Steve reached for y/n’s body, scooping it into his arms, “what happened to her??”
Wanda shooked her head, sniffling, “..The price of untying someone’s red string is.. the person on the other end of the string will die.”
Steve was shocked since y/n had never told him that, as Wanda confirmed his thought.
“She’s dead, Steve.” Wanda said, “that’s why we don’t want to untie your string.” she shooked her head and cried again.
Steve stared at her, a tear rolled down his cheek, he pulled her body close to him as he put all the pieces together,
Y/n was his soulmate.
Gardiner Sisters have some good covers, and I do not own the song (obviously, what are you saying, Dille.)
La Plage has a way with a guitar, she almost looks as though she is caressing it as sweet melodies are filling our eardrums. She makes it look so effortless as she opens her mouth for a light airy voice to grace us. Her lyrics speak about how we can have people around us but still feel alone. I do believe being alone and loneliness are different, taking time out isn’t bad but I think this artist is referring to loneliness. This speaks volumes for people suffering with mental health because it’s a battle against oneself. She also sings “keep on drinking” which sounds like she is trying to fill a hole in escapism mode. In the end she wants to know will there be support when the rollercoaster ends.
To preface, I’ve never been much of a black and white kind of girl. So I did not prefer Mad Max Fury Road in black and chrome, though I did like it more than I thought I would. Bae said 50-60% of the shots looked better to him in black and white; he generally prefers this version more now.
BLACK AND WHITE
Pros The details really stood out. I noticed details about the scarring I hadn’t before. I can’t explicitly remember what it was, but some scarring stood out as particularly deeper than I ever remember it on Nux’s abdomen. Slit’s cheek gash stood out. Angharad’s scars were suuper noticeable.
The War Rig looked majestic AS FUCK. Especially near the beginning of the movie and near the end. She looked especially black and imposing and made her seem wonderfully powerful.
Face closeups, especially when the face had any War Boy markings, looked Amazing and sharp and super intense and expressive. Morsov’s ‘WITNESS ME’ was intense af.
The spray-on chrome looked especially shiny and nifty looking. Bae would actually put this in the cons if he had the choice. He didn’t think it stood out as nicely. I can see why, but the shine of it managed to push through and stand out to me.
I WAS SO AFRAID THE STORM SCENE WOULD LOOK WEIRD AND UNIMPRESSIVE BUT IT DIDN’T. I think some of it comes from living in a place where I grew up with tornado imagery, and the idea of a sandstorm seems pretty unreal. The black and white definitely made the storm feel more tornado-y. But the columns of sand just had this weight to it. The 'sneak up’ of the storm in the back of the scenes prior wasn’t as impressive. Like it just like, yeah, it’s foggy/grainy out there whatevs. But once the camera pulled back and gave us that ominous shot just… holy shit. It also made things easier to see when in the storm, and oh my god the scene where the War Boys get pulled up into the funnel was particularly breathtaking and heartbreaking. Oh my. I asked Bae his favorite thing about Black and Chrome and he cited this sequence.
Death of the War Rig. Holy shit. OUCH! She looked so black and imposing and impressive barreling down toward the pass, and then she shudders and spins and falls and goes crashing into the rocks and the pursuit vehicles crash in behind her and just… sooo heartbreaking. So impressively heartbreaking. My majestic War Rig.
THE NIGHT SCENES! Omg. They looked purple. In the color version, everything is so blue that it does a little of that immersion breaking because it’s so obvious that it’s some kind of post work being done. Like, it’s still absolutely beautiful in the color version, but it just has that moment of 'they used blue lens didn’t they??’ (I feel like they actually didn’t, but it still had that feeling.) The black and white night scenes felt real though. It felt like it was night, and somehow it was just so violet. I mentioned it to the Bae on the way home, and he was light, “Right? I had to remind myself it was black and white.” Just. Oh my. This was probably my second absolute favorite thing about the black and white.
Probably my absolute FAV thing about the black and white version: Whenever Furiosa had the black paint, the blackness of her forehead and hair and the blackness of the War Rig made it look like they melded into each other. It was hard to tell where Furiosa ended and the War Rig began and vice versa. What beautiful symbolism! The War Rig is visually almost literally an extension of Furiosa herself.
Cons The first thing I put in this category, I do so tentatively. It was actually kind of cool, but it’s hard to say how intentional it could have been, but any of the scenes that weren’t totally in focus were particularly noticeable as blurry. Sometimes it seemed like it was a purposeful 'this is chaos’ technique, but it also sometimes looked like it was just 'things were happening too fast and it looks fine anyway.’
Some of the slower moments felt hokey or unpolished. This is probably an extremely biased opinion. Black and white doesn’t generally hold my attention really well, so that may factor in here. But certain points when it would go from action to something kind of slow really quickly just felt weird and ruined my immersion a bit as it made me think about the editing. The first scene that comes to mind that did this to me is when Max suddenly comes running out of the caves and he gets his full view of Citadel—before jumping to the hook. It just felt weird to me.
Doof Warrior. His debut just didn’t have that extra umpf without his red onesie. I was surprised that the flames coming out of his guitar looked as badass as they did though. They felt like liquid fire, which was really rather cool, but doof in a grey onesie just… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Bae says they should have just let that one thing stay red. Haha.
It might have been because I was tired, but the Brothers in Arms sequence wasn’t as impactful. I kind of spaced out during it, which, you know… wtf, that’s the Brothers in Arms sequence. I pulled myself back in in time to see the flames and the sand putting it out, and they just weren’t as majestic and breathtaking in black and white.
The War Boys kind of looked even cooler, with them going from being painted white TO BEING WHITE AS FUCK, but they also didn’t really stand out against people who weren’t painted. Pretty much everyone on screen were as white as could be, particularly because the whites in the film felt like they were intentionally blown out a bit to get that gritty and artsy feel. This usually looked pretty cool, but it kind of made the War Boy paint moot. Bae actually said this was a pro for him, because he felt it made them look really sharp. So, this is definitely a matter of opinion (I mean, of course it is. All of this is really).
Bae and I both looked at each other when Furiosa was giving Max the sequence as she says “Red, black, go” as obviously there’s no red to see. It felt weird and made me start thinking about the in universe implications of black and white in a very getting-too-into-the-fandom-y sort of way. I think 'going to the green place’ hadn’t done this to us earlier because it’s so much of an idea and less seeming like a color, but we noticed it later.
The Vuvalini reveal just wasn’t as cool or intense. I’m not sure exactly how the color played into it, but the riding and throwing up of the sand behind them just wasn’t as impressive in black and white and they didn’t look as striking or interesting. I think some of that later thing has to do with not so easily being able to see the fabric patterns real well on their bikes/clothing.
A lot of emotional moments didn’t seem as intense to me. Bae kind of disagreed with me on this one, except when I talked to him about the comment about “something in the eyes” and they show Furiosa looking at the Vuvalini through Valkyrie’s hair. I don’t know. Knowing what that moment looks like in color, and just how beautiful and intense it is seeing the color there, it just fell a bit flat to me. Also, when Furiosa goes walking off into the desert after finding out the Green Place is gone, she’s kind of just a silhouette walking off and you don’t really see the details of her outfit. I don’t know. It just felt a little less like watching Furiosa drift off in despair and instead watching someone do it. Altho I will say that once the camera pans away from her after the screen, and she’s this tiny black spot against that vast background… that was freaking impressive and awesome. Bae felt different about Furiosa walking off.
My least favorite thing, and the thing that I think likely played a large part of why Miller ultimately decided not to release it in black and white for the theatrical version is that you miss the Green and Blue in the beginning. In this world of fire and dust and death, it’s striking in the color version when we get that first glimpse of green above Max as he’s trying to climb away from the War Boys. When Immortan Joe stands to make his speech and walks past the camera, the scene behind him looks bland. If I had first seen the movie in black and white, I think I’d realize the camera is showing me something, but I’m not sure I’d have caught what they wanted me to see, because it’s the green and the bluish color of the water that, in those few seconds in the frame, you have a clear visual representation of Immortan Joe hoarding all that green and water to himself, shortly followed by him making the comment about not 'being addicted to water'—as if that could ever be a choice. I feel like the turning point of the movie was undercut by this. When Max is asked what’s at the Citadel and he says Green, the audience in the color version is starkly reminded that yeah, the tops of those formations were topped with green, and Immortan Joe had plants in that room before the Vault and Max looked up through bars at sunlight and green. We remember the Green. That could easily be missed in the black and white version.
I noted three spots in particular where I thought the audio was different. I’m less sure now that I’ve put some headphones in and watched the scenes. Someone else who watches should let me know if they notice anything. The only one that still feels really different, even after putting the headphones on and listening is when Furiosa saves Max. I’m less sure since the other things might not be different; I might be just be wrong
In the scene where Furiosa saves Max, there’s this sort of 'things are happening music.’ It’s not the, this is good/bad thing is happening or this course altering thing is happening. It’s that sort of, intermediate music that plays when important stuff is happening and it’s important to pay attention but it’s not a big moment. That music continues through Max pushing one War Boy into another’s chainsaw, through him slipping back as he loses balance as the War Boys fall, through him falling over the side of the War Rig and continues through Furiosa catching his knee brace with her prosthetic arm. The music doesn’t really have any change to it’s pace or beat until Baby Face stabs her in the side, and you get that intense 'oh shit’ crescendo. It sounded so weird but I couldn’t quite place what was different. I knew there was a music shift immediately as Furiosa catches Max, but I couldn’t figure out what it was. I pulled that scene up in the car afterward, and the music abruptly stops when she catches him, and we hear all the sound effects, very similarly to the Buzzard battle, until Baby Face stabs her and we get that crescendo. The color sound is much better here in my opinion. Just… FASCINATING
So yeah. Knowing what I do now about the trip to the theater, I still would probably have decided not to go, but I am happy that I saw it. I don’t personally think I’ll buy the Black and Chrome version, so who knows when I would have gotten around to see it, and seeing mmfr in the theaters for the eighth time… hard to complain about that!
I’d love to hear any thoughts from anyone else who’s watched this version!
fyi, in my head this takes place about 12 months before my last AU prompt fic, here, so that makes them around 16yo in this.
It isn’t that he wants to tell her he told her so.
There’s a bit of lingering resentment deep down inside him that nearly makes the words rise up, but he keeps it in check. Because although Jimmy has turned out to be the complete and utter wanker John predicted six months ago, he can’t pretend that his prediction was completely…scientific, in nature. It hadn’t even been a snap judgement upon seeing Jimmy’s boyband good looks and ratty guitar slung over his shoulder, though that had confirmed it to him later; John hadn’t even glimpsed him when he’d told Rose he was a tosser.
Jealousy, pure and simple, had led him to his unkind comment, when Rose had come into Drama class all flushed and excited, having been asked out by an older boy who had once attended their school.
And now, after a whirlwind romance, Jimmy’s up and left for Europe with another girl.
