Do you ever look at your crush, bias, or someone you really admire and think, “I may never end up with you, but I hope you can find someone who gives you more joy and love and comfort than I ever will”?
To me reputation sounds like confidence. It
sounds like a bravery. It sounds like feelings you were keeping to yourself for
too long. It sounds like a flirty conversation at the party after two or three
drinks when no one is looking at you and your crush. It sounds like a
confession made to your lover. It sounds like realizing you’re worth much more
than opinion of people who don’t know you. It sounds like a force. It sounds
like awakeness. It sounds like taking a risk. It sounds like loving someone so
hard and so truly that nothing and no one can destroy you and your
relationship. It sounds like happiness. It sounds like freedom.
How long do you have before whoever you’re crushing on is a lost cause if they don’t already like you back?
••• Look at your crushes signs •••
Cardinal Signs (Check Sun, Moon, Venus, Mars and 7th)
• Aries: Decides the moment they meet you if they like you, but they may also change their mind later… like after you guys fuck 🙃. Confuses love with lust, so watch out.
• Cancer: Decides after 30 years. You’ve gotta be determined as hell… but ultimately, if you give them attention and make them feel loved.. it’s in the bag. However, if they’re given reason to distrust you before liking you, you’re 100% out. Usually doesn’t go for people who they believe to be “higher” than they are, so if you’re the Jock going after the shy Cancer Venus girl, she’s not gonna believe your motives are pure for shit. Go hit a Pisces Venus up with that ish.
• Libra: Changes their mind often. Can easily be deterred. Often will like someone JUST cause they like them back. Like Cancer, these people tend to love due to the attention.
• Capricorn: Either likes you or doesn’t. Meets you and immediately tags you as smash or pass. After that, it’s all about how you speak to their soul. They’re the type that’ll fuck you on the first date but won’t kiss you in public until they decide you’re trustworthy and have shit going for you – or you’re worth their time. Likes people who will boost their status more, whether they’re attractive or know lots of people.
• Taurus: They’ll take a long time to decide, but the moment they do, they’re dead set. They’ll go after you until the end of time. “Fling” isn’t in their vocabulary.
• Leo: Like Cancer and Libra, these people thrive off of attention, and will often start liking you simply due to the attention given to them. However, they also desire the social ranking, attractiveness, and positivity in a partner, much like Capricorn. They want to know they’ll not only be treated like a Queen, but will become closer to being one as well.
•Scorpio: They meet you: Smash or Pass. They’ll chase you, so often enough you don’t have to worry about it. Sexual as shit and generally flirtatious, it can be hard to know if you’re the “one” they’re talking to. They often chase several people at once. If you want them, challenge them.
•Aquarius: Appeal to their mind. Good conversation is key. Listen. Prove you care about people. Prove you’re intelligent. First impressions aren’t everything, but they sure do help. Adventures, fun-loving. These people are the definition of “idrc about looks…”
• Gemini: Look at Aquarius. It’s the same. However, communication is more key than people. They want to be with someone they can learn from. Teach them. Let them teach you. If there is no learning, there is no love.
• Virgo: Same as Gemini, except with Aquarius’s love of people and without their acceptance of anyone and everyone. If you have no future, they don’t fwu. They need attractive people, like Capricorn.
• Sagittarius: Aquarius to a T. Also needs someone creative and willing to get fucked up with them, tbh.
• Pisces: Appeal to their creativity. Make them feel special. They love attention but love support even more. Often, just by loving them they love you… however, their high expectations can cause problems when you don’t live up to them… Prince(ss) Charming is hard to obtain, so good thing she/he thinks everyone they meet is him/her.
Thank you for the comments and the messages. It really has meant a lot and I can’t believe how easy it is to write for Steve but then again, it’s Steve. So, here is part three and I hope it’s to your liking. Also, thank you for all the follows: means a buttload!
Requested: ‘I fricking LOVE ‘you never know’ omg, great work’
‘OMMGMGGMGGG you never know is great!!! i love it so much i hope you write more !’
So yes. Requested.
You were in the Wheeler’s basement, watching a young girl lift the Millenium Falon off the ground with just her mind. There was no gimmick to it, no string to help support it, you must have waved your hand over the toy at least eight times. You looked up at Steve, your eyes getting bigger as his expression couldn’t help but smile at your sense of wonder.
“Holy shit,” You mumbled, looking back at the girl. A smile came across your face, “You’re the real deal. Holy fuck!” You stood up, placing your hands on the sides of your face, spinning in a circle to finally look at Steve once more. “Jesus, fuck! I’m sorry for the cursing. It’s just―fuck!” The younger boys glanced over at Steve, unsure of what was going on.
“Was it the best thing to tell her?” Mike, the leader of their pack, asked.
“What? Y/N? Yeah, she’s totally,” Steve couldn’t help but smiled at you when he saw the look on your face. Pure amazement, “cool.” He finished his sentence. “Anyways, didn’t you tell Max all this with just knowing her of just a week?”
“That wasn’t all of our decision!” Mike interjected, pointing at Lucas, “Lucas told her without letting any of us know!”
“I’ve known Y/N since kindergarten,” Steve said, crossing his arms, looking down at the young teens, “I say, she should know because I need at least another set of hands to handle all of you.”
“But what about the bad men?” Will softly spoke up. His big doe eyes looked at Steve, having a sense of worrying hitting the pit of his stomach, “Or the upside down? We are going to have another person to worry about.”
“I’ll look after her.” Steve quickly said. He rubbed the tip of his nose to hide away his blush from everyone. Everyone that is but one boy catching it.
“This was your plan all along! He wouldn’t shut up about her earlier! He was waiting by the phone all night!” Dustin practically yelled. He pointed to the guy that he recently looked up to, “What happened to show them you don’t care?”
not to be an unlikable nerd but like look up pics of your fictional crushes, no matter how ‘cringey’ or 'cursed’ they are. listen to that guilty pleasure music you like. look up fics of whatever you’re into. do things that make you happy and try to do it without worrying how it makes you look
If you had to pick a favourite thing about your wolf
boyfriend it was that he was so warm and comfy that you could nap cuddled up
against him for hours but, unfortunately, right now he needed you to remain
awake. You sighed and cuddled up against his chest as you let the new
information wash over you, he rubbed your back with his massive hand as you
both lay on his bed. He kissed the top of your head as you idly gazed out into
the hallway, his mum’s rule was that if you were around the bedroom door always
had to be open, she wasn’t in but in all honestly you felt a bit more
comfortable with it open. You’d not discussed being intimate with Embry, and
right now wasn’t the time, so you hid behind the open door and his mother’s
“You know, she’ll be loving the attention.” You mumbled
after a moment of silence and beneath your head Embry’s chest rumbled in
“Jacobs in bits over the whole thing.” Embry told you, “He can’t believe that
she chose the leech over him.”
“I can’t believe it either if I’m honest.” You told him.
“I thought that you were over your thing for Jacob.” Embry teased you and
squeezed your arm playfully, you managed a small smile but even Embry couldn’t
cheer you up after the news that he’d given you.
A vampire army was coming to Forks. Yeah, vampire army. And
Jacob was worried about his love life.
“When did my life get so complicated?” You sighed and
started to draw patterns with your finger over Embry’s chest.
He caught your hand and brought it up to his lips so that he could kiss the
back of your hand, “I’m guessing when you met me?” he offered.
You sat up and looked down at him, since getting over your initial awkwardness about
the imprint you’d not seen him look so unsure of himself. Your stomach flipped
at the self-annoyance in his voice, you leaned down and brushed your lips
against his before smirking and mumbled against his lips, “Yes you ruined my
life, you stupid mutt.”
It took him a whole second to register the humour in your voice and in the next
second he’d whipped a pillow from under his own head and hit you around the
head with it. You let out a yelp of indignation as you play fought on his bed,
his large hands finding your sides and tickling you. In a rush to escape his
tickling torture you threw yourself to the side and as you began to fall off of
his bed he caught you and fell with you so that you landed atop him in a pile
of limbs and bedding.
He was laughing the ridiculous barking laugh that he did
when he found something way too funny, the one that you found so adorable no
matter who much the rest of the pack mocked it. That was Embry’s unabashed joy,
how could you not like it? Your laughing soon joined him and you dropped
yourself down on the floor beside him, laughing and enjoying life as you knew
it before the forces of darkness descended upon Forks.
His warm hand found yours as you lay there. He faced you, his mop of hair
sticking out from your fighting, “How can you make me laugh when all the worlds
going to shit?”
You dramatically batted your eyelashes, “Because I’m the best imprint ever?”
You got a pillow in the face again for that one.
After each imprint had been told individually about the
looming threat, you were all invited over to Emily and Sam’s to discuss what it
meant for the pack. Sam took centre stage, as Alpha, and the pack sat with the
imprints in a circle around him. Embry had bundled you into his lap but you
were sure to give Jacob a hug on the way in, he needed to know that he wasn’t
“So, you all know that Forks is in danger.” Sam started, Paul opened his mouth
to make a comment but Leah clamped her hand over his mouth and Sam continued,
“There’s no way to sugar coat it, we have decided to fight alongside the
Cullen’s to eradicate the Leeches.”
A thick silence fell over you all, no one expected you be
the one to puncture it, “Fuck off.”
Everyone’s gaze snapped to you, eyebrows up, mouths open.
Embry wrapped his arms tighter around
you. Sam, to his credit, wasn’t mad. His face was full of all the understanding
that it took for him to control his hormone fuelled wolves on a daily basis,
“Y/N I know that it’s come as a shock and that you’re probably scared but
you’re a smart girl. Think about it logically, we have to stand and fight or a
lot of people could die.”
“Yeah people like you,” You argued, your hands were holding
onto Embry’s arms around your waist, “But I’m sure I’ll be comforted by my
logic when you’re all dead.”
Embry shh’d you slightly, not to silence you but because it was all he could
think to do to help calm you. Sam looked around the room, once glance at the
imprints was all it took for him to know that they agreed with you. But there
was nothing that they could do to change it.
Sam came to over to where you and Embry were sat and
crouched down so that he was in your eye line. You wiped furiously at your eyes
that were spilling tears without your permission. Embry kissed your temple
again, his chest rumbling at Sam’s closeness to your while you were upset.
“Y/N, none of us wanted this. If it was up to us we’d let the leeches rip each
other apart and that would be that but you and I both know that’s not how it
would end.” Sam implored, his patience shining through again, he didn’t want to
see you upset but this had to happen.
He continued, “I never woke up and thought that I’d like to be a wolf, never
mind in charge of these idiots,” Some of the pack elbowed each other, “Buts
it’s my life now and I love it and I will protect it and everyone that I love.
If they descend on us and we do nothing than everyone in Forks and La Push will
You let his words settle over you, you’d always quite liked
Sam, he’d never had a choice in how his life had turned out but always seemed
to try to be firm but fair as he dealt with the boys. You turned in Embry’s lap
so that you were facing your boyfriend and instantly he was wiping tears from
your cheeks and kissing where they’d trailed.
“Do you think that you can do this?” You asked him, your voice was thick with
trying not to cry.
He ran his hand threw his hair and gave you a lopsided grin that screamed
confidence, “It’s kind of what we do babe.”
You took in a deep, shuddery breath before looking over at Kim and Emily to
make sure they agreed with you before asking, “So what do you need from us?”
The list of rules that the pack had given you was
ridiculous. The biggest annoyance that it caused you was the fact that no
imprint was allowed to be alone at any time. You gained a furry escort
everywhere, even when you slept you knew that the guard changed over the course
of the night.
Today you were supposed to be under house arrest while the pack went to ‘train’
with the Cullens, they’d called it that so that you wouldn’t worry but you’d
already threatened Embry not to start trouble with Emmett and to be careful or
you’d shave him the next time you saw him as a wolf. And you’d meant to keep
your promise to them to be somewhere where you could be protected at all times,
you really had.
But the world seemed to have different plans for you.
Life could change in an instant; you knew that better than
most. One look from your crushes best friend and you’d found the love of your
life. Your literal mate. Not that you’d
been too keen on the connection at first, dreamy dimples or no dreamy dimples,
but now you couldn’t see yourself without Embry.
You had intended to keep your promise not to wonder of on unattended but when
your car gets run off of the road and into the woodlands by a monstrous ball of
fur, you don’t really get much of a say.
Well c’mon, that can’t be your fault. You’d stumbled from your car,
uninjured but dazed. You were thanking your lucky stars that you were safe when
you the thought of random moments effecting your life.
Somehow, for some
reason, you knew that the injured wolf at your feet would be one of these
instances. You tried not to panic but it was hard, it bubbled up in your
instantly as a survival instinct. This wolf wasn’t part of the pack that much
you knew because the back was with the Cullens. You couldn’t repress the
shudder at your situation.
The pack was working with the Cullens, you were left unattended while a new
army of the undead made their way to town and you’d found yourself the new
keeper of an injured unknown wolf. You took a tentative step towards it, its
dark eye snapped open and watched you. You jumped back, the fear that you’d had
when you first learned of Embry now fresh. The wolf’s breathing was laboured,
its chest heaving up and down. Its eyes
rolled back and he stopped looking at you.
Fuck. Fuck fuckitty fuck.
Well what were you supposed to do now?
Its side was bleeding profusely and you could tell by the
deep gashes along his ribs that your car hadn’t done that. Shaking, you slipped
your jumper from your shoulders and pushed it down onto the gashes.
What where you supposed to do?
How far away was the pack?
Would they hear you if you called or would the thing that had attacked this
wolf hear you?
You pulled your phone from your jeans pocket and dialled one of the only people
outside of the pack who could help you, “Billy? Billy I found a wolf.”
Through the combined effort of you, Billy and Sue, somehow
you weren’t surprised to find that she knew about the pack, you had gotten the
wolf into Sue’s truck and taken him back to Sue’s house and laid him across
You explained everything that you could to them, it had all happened so fast.
Billy took you to one side in the hallway while Sue ventured into the edge of
the woods in the hopes of catching the pack before they panicked at the scent
of another wolf in the area.
Billy pulled you to one side in the hallway, “Look Embry loves you but he may
react out of instinct to this new wolf. He’s just worried about you, remember
“He wouldn’t hurt me.” You told him with absolute certainly.
“I know that.” Billy said, “But that doesn’t mean that he won’t hurt that wolf
in there. We don’t want you getting hurt by accident.”
Almost as soon as the words where said the door crashed open
and after a stampede of footsteps you were knocked off of your feet and into
the warm arms of your frantic boyfriend.
He dropped to his knees, still holding you close to his chest and held you
still for a moment.
Was he sniffing you?
“Did he touch you?” His voice rasped in your ear. It took
you a moment of squirming in his arms to be able to face him, “No just my car.
I think it was an accident though, I touched him to put my jumper on his ribs.”
You explained and his shoulders deflated slightly as he breathed a sigh of
relief. More sets of footprints crashed
into the hallway behind you, the rest of the pack must have caught up.
Quil was bent over, his hands on his knees as he huffed, “Jesus, I’ve never
seen Embry move that fast.”
Sam was straight down to business, “What do we know?”
Billy answered him, “His wounds are starting to heal now that he’s able to
rest. He’s transformed back into his human form but he’s not regained
Sam turned his attention to you, “What happened Y/N?”
“I was driving to your place when my truck got taken off of the road,” Embry
growled at this but you continued, “I took my jumper off to hold it to his
wounds and phoned Billy. I –” You stopped.
“What is it?” Paul encouraged you.
“Okay so this is going to sound weird but I felt like I had to help that guy.” You patted Embry’s arm as he tightened his
grip on you, “I felt like I had to. I can’t explain it.”
The guys shared a look before glancing at Embry. Your boyfriend was clearly
annoyed at your strong desire to save another man but for now he was content
just to hold onto you after the fear of scenting an unfamiliar wolf and dealing
with the Cullens all afternoon.
A noise at Seth’s bedroom door snatched everyone’s attention
as the door opened and the wolf shuffled out in his human form, a towel around
his waist to hide his modesty. He was easily as tall as Paul and had the same
tanned skin and taut psyche as the pack. He looked as old, if not older, than Sam and his black
hair stuck up in all directions.
Sam stood proud in front of his pack, the alpha in charge, he started simply,
“What’s your name?”
“Cade.” The words came out hard and twisted from exhaustion before he looked
around and his eyes found yours, “Thank you for saving me.”
“You’re welcome.” You squeaked out from your boyfriend-fortress. Cade took a
step towards you and Embry growled at him and Jake and Paul stopped his path.
“Move.” Cade told them and Paul pushed the injured wolf back with one large
“No.” Paul snapped, “What do you want with my sister? You ran her off the road.
You could have killed her.” He snarled and out of your peripheral you noticed
Seth guiding Billy and Sue out of the line of fire.
“You’re not related, she doesn’t smell of you.” Cade said
Paul’s face flushed with anger but you cut him off by asking, “What is it that
“I don’t know.” Cade answered honestly with a shrug, “I’d just got away from
the new-borns then I smelt you. There’s something about your smell, I had to come and find you.”
“She’s my imprint.” Embry snarled, you could feel him starting to shake against
you and you tried to calm him.
“I know,” Cade told him before pushing his hands into his
hair, he looked distraught, “But the smell, you don’t understand, it’s driving
me insane.” He looked at the guys, “Can’t any of you smell it?!”
They were shaking their heads when downstairs the door slammed opened and Leah
was coming up the hallway, “What the fuck is going on in my house? Where’s Y/N?
And what’s that sm-”
She stopped short when she noticed Cade for the first time and he turned to
face her. They locked eyes and forgot about everyone else.
“Did they just -?” You whispered to Embry.
He nodded and as his whole posture relaxed he dropped back against the wall
bringing you into his lap, “He must have smelt Leah on you. The smell of his
mate nearby with the threat of the new-borns must have driven him insane.”
“Does this mean we can’t kick his ass?” Paul asked.
“I’ve not decided yet.” Sam grumbled as they watched Leah and Cade stare at
each other in the hallway, they’d not moved yet.
Seth’s face was split into a massive grin, he nudged you with his knee as he
stood beside where you sat, “Maybe your imprint to Embry gave you a better link
to the pack? That’s why you knew that you had to help him? I don’t understand
the whole mating link but Leah’s gonna be happy, that’s all I care about.”
“That’s if she remembers how to talk.” Quil quipped.
Leah was the one to make the first move, that’s if you can
call launching herself into his arms a move. The motion knocked him back and
they fell into Seth’s room, the door slamming shut behind them.
Seth’s grin dropped and he whimpered, “My room.”
Sam straightened his shoulders, “We need to have a vote
about if he can join our pack.” He made a move for Seth’s door but you were
quicker. You jumped in front of the door and held your arms out on either side
to stop Sam.
“Sam, don’t you think after everything that Leah had to go through with you and
Emily and then her Dad that she deserves this moment?” You implored, “Do your
serious pack stuff later. Think about how protective you are of Emily, and
Jared of Kim, and Embry of me. I wouldn’t want to get in the way of two wolves
with the imprint, would you?”
Sam considered it for a moment, he had totally destroyed
Leah with his relationship with Emily, he knew that. He nodded, “They have
tonight but tomorrow we have to talk about the outsider.” Sam spoke loudly so
that they would hear him through the door but you could hear clothing ripping
from inside the room and doubted that they were paying attention to Sam.
The next morning Leah was PISSED.
She had met with you that morning and told you about
everything that had happened between her and her mate the night before – yours
ears where burning with embarrassment by the end of her tales. But for now you
had more pressing matters, she was stalking up and down as you sat outside Sam
“Vote on the outsider?” She snarled, “Vote on the outsider?! That’s my
You jumped at her voice but stayed sat. She just needed to vent and you were
her closet friend.
You spoke about it for a while before she sighed and dropped
herself down next to you. She let out a huff before cuddling up to your side,
you wrapped your arm around her.
“Y/N if they don’t let him join our pack then I’m going to leave with him.” She
whispered to you.
“I don’t want you to leave.” You admitted, “I’d miss you too much.”
Leah sniffed, “I’d miss you too, of course I’d try to come back to see you.
But…you understand don’t you, Y/N?”
You inhaled the question and the answer came to you in an
instant. You did understand. The way that you felt about Embry, when by all
sane rights you should be terrified of him, was so much more than you ever
expected to feel about anyone and you were human. You couldn’t imagine that
connection between two wolves.
“I do.” You told her and she hugged your side more.
Cade came up behind you and gave Leah a small kiss before
focusing his attention on you, “Y/N, I just wanted to say, not matter how they
vote in there, thank you for being so understanding yesterday, for saving me
and for bringing me to my mate. I’m sorry if I scared or upset you.”
You gave him a small smile, “Don’t mention it and for what
it’s worth, I hope it goes well in there.”
“Me too.” He agreed and took Leah’s hand before they headed into Sam and Emily’s
house. Kim and Emily joined you sat waiting their decision, none of you spoke.
When the door finally opened, one hour and twenty three
minutes later – not that you’d been counting- Leah rushed out and caught both
you and Emily in an embrace.
“Whatever you said to Sam and Embry thank you,” She whispered to you both and
you could feel her tears on your neck, “They helped me and Seth convince the
others to let Cade stay.”
She stepped back and wiped away her tears of happiness and Cade was behind her
in an instant, his hands holding hers and kissing her cheeks where she’d been
You made your way over to Embry, wrapped your arms around
his neck and pushed yourself up on your tiptoes so that you could kiss the tip
of his nose. He grinned and gave you proper kiss.
“I’m proud of you for being so mature.” You told him.
His arms came around you, “Yeah well he came and apologised to me for scaring
you and then I heard him apologise to you as well. I couldn’t split up a bond,
I remembered how I felt yesterday when I found your truck. I wouldn’t want that
“How’d I get the sweetest wolf?” You asked.
He shrugged and gave you a grin, “Just lucky I guess. Well done you, you won
the grand prize. Which is me, obviously.”
“And so modest.” You teased.
Jacob interrupted your moment as he stamped his way out of
the house, the broken remnants of his phone in his hand.
“Bad call?” Embry asked.
Jacob glared at him, like he did everyone these days, “That was Bella. We don’t
have long until the new-borns show up. I’ve got a plan to get her out of there
before they show up.”
At the mention of the upcoming war you snuggled into Embry’s chest and he
stroked your hair.
“Jake, not now okay?” Embry asked and nodded down at you.
“Not now, not now.” Jacob mocked, “Look you and Y/N may have a perfect bond but
Bella doesn’t want me. The only thing that I can do is save her from the
With that stunning display of logic he stamped off towards
“It’s just one thing after another since you imprinted on me.” You noted.
Embry hummed in agreement before adding, “You know even though I was a wolf, my
life was pretty quiet too. I’m starting to think that all this is your fault.”
You didn’t need to look up to know he was grinning so you
poked him in the ribs, “Asshole.”
He gave you a playful squeeze, “Love you too.”
