before you go any further: stop and picture all the members in baseball pants. you’re welcome. (mostly for @moon-hyuks and @snibnoom)


  • that one rlly loud shortstop/outfielder
  • a lot of people think they’re gonna be able to hit it right over his head but jokes on them bc mj will leap into the air and snatch the ball out of the air
  • really good at catching ground balls, scooping them up and flinging them in a nasty little zinger to whoever needs them
  • has the most double play assists on the team
  • when he’s in the outfield he’s constantly cheering and yelling for his other teammates
  • he’s not the best batter but he can consistently get himself onto 1st base
  • a sneaky little shit that likes to steal bases when no one’s looking
  • always starts the chants from the dugout when they’re at bat


  • catcher
  • can u not see him crouched behind home base with his backwards hat and pads waiting to catch the pitches
  • also of course he’s the catcher the catcher’s the one that’s calling to the field players, telling them who’s going where and what base to throw the ball to
  • really good at reading batters and telling rocky what kind of ball to throw
  • gets along really well with all the umpires
  • his walkout song is boom boom pow
  • everyone underestimates him at bat bc look at this short blond dude alright y’all bring the fielders in
  • little do they know he’s gonna slam the ball way out to the fences
  • on the occasions that he hits home runs, he’s been known to dance onto home plate after doing his little trot around the bases


  • he really didn’t mean to end up on a team, he just liked throwing the baseball
  • except once bin saw him throwing with donghwi and was like “hey…pretty boy…come try out for our team”
  • so now he’s 1st baseman
  • he’s so stable and consistently is in the perfect place to catch the ball from all the bases
  • kind of bad at dealing with poor umpires, has gotten himself put on the bench by the coach because he’ll start arguing calls
  • not the best batter but he’s slowly getting better
  • very methodical in his approach to batting, will practice his swing more times than a lot of people find necessary before stepping in the box


  • a wicked 3rd baseman
  • everybody dreads their game against bin bc he’s tall and is known for leaping up and catching the ball before it can get to the outfield
  • he throws the ball wicked fast and before he’s back on the ground from catching it he’s already flinging the ball back towards 1st to get the out
  • shouts. so much. every time he makes a good play you can hear a really loud “woo-hoo!” come from somewhere around 3rd base
  • (he always blames it on sanha)
  • someone tries to steal 3rd or home? rip them
  • he and rocky are on a mind meld and as soon as someone tries to start stealing bin is there and rocky is turning around to fling the ball to him
  • is not afraid to chase a person down to tag them
  • he and rocky battle for the best batting average on the team on the regular
  • bin’s rule for running the bases is going to the one he can get to safely and then going one more (aka he makes the most dives and also gets tagged out the most)


  • star pitcher of the team
  • he and jinjin haven’t worked together forever (he and bin have) but they’re a really great together
  • has a wicked corkscrew (a spinny one) that consistently catches batters at a loss
  • not afraid of the ball, has been known to snatch it out of the air off the bat
  • absolutely hates when he throws balls, and holds himself personally accountable
  • before jinjin was his catcher he’d just get a 10 gallon bucket full of balls and pitch for hours on end when he thought he’d thrown too many balls instead of strikes
  • (after jinjin found out about it he started catching those and making sure rocky doesn’t wear himself out)
  • the team loves when his time at bat comes at the same time as the bases are loaded
  • so does he
  • bc instead of batting (which he’s gr8 at normally) he gets to bunt
  • his favorite thing is warming up like he’s going to try to smash the ball and watching the opposing team scramble after he switches and bunts it really short as he flies towards first base


  • outfielder, mostly behind 3rd (tho occasionally is seen in the center)
  • he’s so tall and is really good at catching fly balls
  • also will race to catch a fly foul ball (and regularly gets there for them)
  • his throw isn’t necessarily the most powerful but boy can he throw f a r
  • he throws long and has good aim and everyone loves having him in the outfield
  • (has been known to space out during practice and has gotten hit in the head by one of jinjin’s batting practices)
  • decent batter, can get himself to 1st pretty regularly
  • he and eunwoo tend to tie for most likely to strike out, they get psyched out by pitchers that aren’t consistent
  • when he does hit well tho he can usually get a double or triple run bc his legs are long and his is quick

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!)

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…
