f/2.8, ISO 100 And she knows every curve of his face. Tenten keeps him a secret, and likes it that way (because he is untouchable like that, and admiration from a distance means she won’t get hurt).

Elf Prince, Digivolve! Her eyes are wandering over his chest, discreetly, and she hopes he doesn’t notice. Digimon aren’t supposed to look this sexy. [Featuring Elf!Neji.]

On Being Nejiko In which Neji finds himself on a seduction mission. As the woman. Doing the seducing. [Featuring Nejiko-Ten-Neji]

Complexities of Blackmail [Everything in the world is about sex, except sex. Sex is about power.] Lieutenant Tenten finds herself caught in a web of blackmail when Lt Hyuuga Neji stumbles upon her doing what she shouldn’t have been. Mere rivalry between old teammates turns into something deeper, much to Tenten’s horror and bewilderment. – in progress. WARNING: controversial content.

Hello Wizard World Strange things are happening in Surrey. Cloaked figures are appearing at random and waving little sticks, doing very awful things to people they cross. Tenten bars herself at home on Privet Drive, and hopes for the best.

Nights in the Sleepless Town They had two years, but sometimes, that was all the time it took to fall.

The Problem with Hats Broken a/c, a tipped-over Weinermobile, and a girl who can’t seem to stop bugging him. It seems as if Neji’s day can’t get any worse than this.

Racetrack to My Heart Ino takes Tenten to a blind date - except it’s not quite blind, and not quite what the latter expects.

In Coffee City, We Borrowed Heaven It wasn’t as if he wanted to take this class, anyway. Reproductive Health 1101 was for people who couldn’t look up information on Google. Or someone who needed a science module to fit in his already-packed schedule. Hyuuga Neji belonged to the latter group of students, and he was in no mood to explain himself.

天涯海角) Edge of Heaven, Corner of Sea Because he was too important to her, because he haunted her thoughts, night and day, and the twilight between.

;) If you could pick a favorite, which would it be??

This morning, I thought back to a year and seven months ago. I thought back to the very beginning of us. I cried and I cried, oh how I cried. Not because it hurt, but because it was beautiful. I took a chance with you and you showed me how to live. Yeah, I want you back. I would give anything to have you back, but I’ve learned that I can’t always get what I want out of you. You’ve called me a “pest” and a “coward”, cruel words that I would have never imagined you say to me. Words that run through my body like a serpent. Cold. Yet I still linger. I still miss you. I miss you right now at this very second, but you need space and time. Why? Because I attacked you with myself. I threw all my emotions and thoughts right at you. You carried them on your back like a slave, you were forced. But once you found the strength to say no, my world began to diminish. You became colder, smarter. You knew what to say and where it hurt. I miss your loud car. The black leather seats that boiled in the summer. We were so in love in the summer, at least I was. But just as summer came to and end, so did our love. The cool breezes of the fall mimic our downfall. They mimic you and I. I want to know what’s on your mind. I ask but you never answer. I call out to you, I scream out at you, but all that I hear is my own damn echo. Desperate. Pathetic. I want to ask you how your family is doing. God I miss your family. How is your dog? I know he’s getting old. Did I get old to you? I feel as if I got boring to you. I want another shot to show you that our love is still there. It’s yearning to be set free from its slumber. Let it be felt. But you won’t give me a second chance. It hurts but I have hope that maybe in the future, we can try at this again. I want one more opportunity and I promise to you I won’t throw it to waste. I’m jealous of her, whoever she may be. Present or future, I’m jealous of her. I know she’ll be beautiful and have a mind of her own. I know your type. I’m not blind, nor stupid. I can see what’s right there in front of me. It’s only natural that you try to fill the void I left in you with someone else. She’s not me, and she will never be. She won’t ever be me or be able to fill in what I left in you. Can she say juice the way I do? Has she seen the office more than you have? Will she make up her own dances when she’s bored? Will she struggle at winking? Will she ever give you what I gave you? Will she ever care as much for you as I do? Will she love you more than I do? No. She will never share the same things we shared. And even with all that being said, I’m still jealous. You’ll notice that when you’re with her, you’ll do things with her that you did with me. You’ll do our things. You’ll miss me like I miss you. You’ll miss my mom’s homemade salsa. But I want you to be happy. I want to give you the world again. I want to be your entire world again. I want to give your butterflies again. I want to hold your hands again, and I want to feel you pop your fingers while we told hands. I want you to wink at me again like you did when I smiled at you. I want to look into your beautiful green eyes and feel at home again. I want to be yours again, and I want you to me mine. I don’t want you to forget about all the memories that we shared. I want to reminisce over the night we met, we were two strangers. I want to tell you that I love you again without having to say “like a friend” afterwards. I think of what may be of us if you hadn’t given up so easily. Happiness. For me, maybe for you if you look back as far as I did, back to a year and seven months ago.
—  Your first love.

OKAY but to people who think this episode was problematic.
Like I don’t see it?? Is it because Jake and Holt were mean to Amy?? Because the fact that Holt was also doing it just showcases that this is Comedy Writing on a Comedy Show about two people who are so fucking keen on winning a stupid Halloween thing that they ended up being super blinded by a person who may have a conflict of interest. They’re SO keen on doing it that they ASSUME the other person is behind any strange thing even if it means Amy wanting to join in. It makes perfect sense??? Holt would think its Jake asking her to do it, and Jake thinking the opposite because tHATS WHAT THIS HALLOWEEN THING IS ABOUT ANYWAYS

And about Jake ‘fake proposing’ and ‘accidentally saying I love you’. The fake proposing thing is an OBVIOUS joke and a desperate attempt for him to get Amy to help him. He knows it’s stupid he knows it’s dumb but he’s so DESPERATE like for real it’s so in character?? And Amy obviously knows it too?? And him accidentally dropping the L bomb is also no big deal, it’s not problematic at all, and lbr he probably already hinted at it before because he’s an idiot.

I just don’t get it. Eventually they both got served with Amy kicking their asses, and Amy proved herself without getting //genuinely// hurt by either of them.

Also holt literally called a woman an imbecile IT JUST PROVES THAT THEY WERE WAY TOO DEEP IN THEIR HALLOWEEN THING

I don’t know about you but honestly to me what they have is clearly love. Sure you may call it platonic but do you really think that it is just purely a platonic relationship when they look at each other like that? Even couples I know in real life don’t even look at each other like that. You don’t have to ship phan but how you could be so blind, ignorant and oblivious to say that they don’t love each other very much. Yeah… Maybe it could still be platonic but it’s the way that they look at each other that convince me its not. It seems kinda stupid but you can’t fake the way you look at someone with love in your eyes. Sure, I don’t know much about love but if I had to describe what love looks like, they’re it.
