I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. I wanna ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me.

What would the king and his court be like in a High school or College Student AU? (I just graduated high school june 1st and I start college June 20th so I need a little something to ease my suffering )
All I had time for was a few sketches but I thought a lot about this highschool au and came up with a bunch of ideas so expect to see more in the future to help you thru your school year (Good luck with your first day of college!!!)
Here are the kids, they are that group that hangs out by the bikes and you are scared to walk by them after school, but really they are all pretty nice kids who sing Your Love by The Outfield loudly at lunch and hang out on saturdays to watch Darkwing Duck
(whenever I think of Meruem as human I always give him a buzz cut but this time I gave him a break and let him have some hair haha!)
“He is intelligent, ambitious and has a big personality. As a teenager he realised it was important for a goalkeeper to be involved in constructing moves for the team, and he loved to train with the outfield players. He can feel football, he can smell it, he has great anticipation.” Lucien Favre
PLEASE do the song thing based off Your love by the outfield 🖤 (if you want ofc ily)
(Amazing song choice!)
~Richie felt the harsh heat of the sun bouncing onto the hood of the car as he sat directly on it, his bare hand keeping himself stable. The red glittered off the car, he would’ve admired the sight if the situation weren’t so troubling. Eddie shoved another suitcase into the back of the car and came around to the front, standing as if he was waiting for something. And Richie knew he was.
“You still got time….just stay another night.” Richie hopped down, leaning back and cupping Eddie’s chin. Eddie shook his way out of the grip.
“I can’t, Rich. That would just make this so much harder.” He swallowed and looked over his shoulder. Richie sighed. He didn’t have much luck or hope in this. There weren’t many Loser’s left to talk to. Bev, Bill, Stan and Ben had all left previously. God, Richie hoped Mike wasn’t next. He needed his friends.
He swiped his hand over his mouth, feeling the damp sweat on his skin. He felt his stomach burn as he replayed the song he’d heard on the way over in his head, staring deep into Eddie’s big brown eyes.
“I don’t want to lose your love tonight…” Richie sang softly and Eddie grimaced. He could tell the smaller boy was fighting back a grin though. Which only encouraged Richie. “I ain’t got many friends left to talk to. Nowhere to run when I’m in trouble. You know I’d do anything for you. Stay the night but keep it under cover. I just want to use your love tonight….”
He brought Eddie close until their foreheads were touching. “Please stop. God, Richie you can’t do this to me, it’s not fucking fair.” Eddie repeated that last part over and over in a struggled whisper that broke Richie’s heart. So he stopped. Eddie pursed his lips and sighed.
“I’d love it if I could stay another night, Rich. Y’know that but I can’t so I’m gonna have to do this the hard way.” Eddie ripped himself out of the tight hold and started his way to the drivers side of the car. Richie tried to follow, But Eddie opened the door, hitting Richie. He grabbed onto the ledge where the window was rolled down.
“Don’t just don’t ok?” Eddie started the car and reached over, slamming the door once he ripped it from Richie’s tight grip. And in ten seconds flat, Eddie left Richie in the dust….and Richie couldn’t really blame him. There were better things waiting for his boy. He kicked a rock out into the street and shook his head.
“But I can’t hide the way I’m feeling. As you’re leaving please would you close the door? And don’t forget what I told you. Just ‘cause you’re right that don’t mean I’m wrong. Another shoulder to cry upon…I just want to use your love tonight.”
Richie sang miserably the whole way home.
(Send me the 60s-80s lyric or song of your choosing, whether you want a Hc list or oneshot , Reddie or Stenbrough, and I’ll do it!)
Ok so I was trolling cheesy 80s songs, and I swear I was just being shitty when I said I was gonna make a Jegulily moodboard for Your Love by The Outfield bc of the “you know I like my girls a little bit older” line, lmao, but like… these lyrics are totally on point for the Defectors AU:
I ain’t got many friends left to talk to Nowhere to run when I’m in trouble You know I’d do anything for you Stay the night but keep it under cover
Try to stop my hands from shaking But something in my mind’s not making sense It’s been a while since we were all alone But I can’t hide the way I’m feeling
I just want to use your love tonight I don’t want to lose your love tonight…
