just some extremely fluffy, domestic ushioi for the soul.
A gust of steam rushes out from behind Oikawa the moment he throws the bathroom door open, floating around him like a protective cloud before dissipating into thin air. He runs a soft towel through his wet hair, pajama pants hanging low on his hips, shirt three sizes too large.
He makes his way to the living room couch where he knows Ushijima will be, probably watching a rerun of one of their older matches of the season. He’s long since learned that Ushijima loves watching him play, marveling at his brilliance and his accuracy, his killer instincts and overall skill. Oikawa agrees with him one hundred percent - he is an incredible setter - but that doesn’t make him feel any less embarrassed when Ushijima basically calls him a god with a straight face. Iwaizumi teases him relentlessly about it.
When he sees that familiar tuft of soft brown hair peeking out from above the couch, Oikawa’s face splits into a smile.
“Waka-chan,” he croons, making his way around the couch, “there you are.”
Ushijima mutes the tv- as Oikawa had predicted, it’s their match against Brazil, the fifth one they’d played this season. Difficult, intense, exhilarating.
The celebratory sex that night had been unforgettable.
Ushijima doesn’t even flinch at the now familiar nickname, answering Oikawa’s call with a small smile and the softening of his eyes. Oikawa holds the hairdryer and comb out, eyes large.
“Please? You always do it best.”
Ushijima shakes his head fondly, moving across the couch to where the nearest plug point is. “You ask as if I have a choice.”
Oikawa cackles, “I was trying to be nice.”
“Don’t,” Ushijima advises, plucking the hairdryer out of his hands. “I like you the way you are.”
Hey there. I’m Dirk. Well, that’s the easiest thing you can call me, at the very least. Everything extraordinaire, sort if. I mean, if you out a challenge on my plate I’m likely to Son Goku that shit so there’s that.
whats the hardest thing i can call u? cuz imma call u that instead >:3c
can yooooou put five jumbo marshmallows in ur mouth @ once without choking? bc i can
if ur still taking prompts do you have any thoughts on an SMH camping trip?
Going camping is Chowder’s idea to start with, but Ransom and Holster are the ones that make sure the trip actually happens. They choose a campsite and make sure that everyone has all the materials they need and Holster even makes a playlist.
That said, Ransom and Holster have absolutely no idea what they’re doing. They think that three bags of marshmallows are necessary and forget to pack almost any other food.
Thank goodness for Bitty being the Mom Friend™ and knowing to pack enough for everyone anyways.
Farmer, Chowder, Bitty, and Dex are the only people in the squad who have ever been camping before.
Dex is super excited to see Nursey in the wild. He wants him to try to be chill with potential bugs crawling in his tent he’s so excited he’s j u st
Nursey wants to write poetry and compare his unrequited crush to the beauties of nature. Leave him alone, Dex.
The trip starts off just with SMH members, but Farmer has been hiking and camping since she was three and really wants to go. Chowder can’t say no to her.
Also! He gets to see his girlfriend in nature in nike shorts walking through undergrowth w/ her powerful and glorious thunder thighs on display and he is just! So excited and overwhelmed.
Lowkey Chowder is a Camping God. He always knows which direction to take to get to the camp ground. He knows which plants to warn the team about before the rest of the team even notices said plants. Could probably survive in the wilderness for months and would still be more upbeat and perfect than u.
The only reason he hasn’t seriously considered doing so is because he really likes being around people and would miss taro boba. Taro boba fuels him.
Lardo stays home. Lardo does not go on camping trips. She did that once in fifth grade and burned down three cabins. It’s the only time in her life she’s been less than Flawless™
When asked to explain how she started the cabin fires, she declines. All you need to know is that she is not going on this trip. Larissa Duan refuses to die in the woods.
Jack and Shitty are both excited for the trip and drive up to join the team.
Shitty wants to be naked in the woods. ‘nuff said.
Jack is going for the #aesthetic. Let my artsy-hipster-photographer son take pictures of his boyfriend the sun dappling through the leaves and the almost fictional looking babbling brooks and the old pieces of junk that people forgot and nature reclaimed. Unlock his camera. Permit him.
They do that whole thing where they sit around a campfire and roast marshmallows and hot dogs. It’s almost too cute.
Nursey keeps on accidentally setting his marshmallow on fire and pouting about it (which is lowkey killing Dex… Nursey has no idea how weak Dex is for Nursey’s puppy-dog look. Someone help him.)
Dex grumpily gives Nursey his perfectly golden-tan marshmallow after about the fourth time Nursey ruins his.
Chowder and Farmer actually like eating charred marshmallows.
Bitty doesn’t understand.. he’s cryign… who consumes blackened sugar??
If Bitty gets cold then it only makes sense that Jack would give him his jacket. Just platonic bros being dudes.
Headcanons for a Misono, Lily, Mikuni, and Jeje family bonding trip? (Lily set it up because he thinks Misono and Mikuni need some bonding time)
Mom Friend Lily strikes again:
A camping tip is decided on, but they do swear to stay on Alicein property just in case something goes wrong or surprise vampire attack of whatnot.
The other three make a collective vow to protect Misono not only from himself but from nature. He doesn’t do very well in the great outdoors, but he wants to be part of the group trip.
Cooking s’mores at night! Mikuni sets his marshmallows on fire just for shits and giggles which terrifies Lily and Misono. Jeje has perfected the art of toasting marshmallows to a delicious golden brown.
Brotherly cuddles at night. Misono and Mikuni share a tent and Lily and Jeje share a tent and, because space is a premium, they have to cuddle close together. Not that they mind that much.
Misono falls right over into a mud puddle and, after making sure he’s okay, Mikuni laughs his ass off. Well, at least until he goes to help his baby brother up-only to be yanked down into the mud himself.
Jeje and Lily make flower crowns for everyone. They all wear them during the whole trip.
Mikuni is a good big bro and gives piggyback rides to Misono during their hikes when he gets too tired to keep walking. Misono would complain, but it’s nice to bond with his brother again so he doesn’t.
Quite talks at night; there’s a lot of unresolved tension between the group, but at night under the stars it all doesn’t seem so bad and it’s a bit easier to talk about everything.
Lily is amazing at packing picnic lunches for their hiking trips, and Jeje is the one to carry the basket. They’re like second parents to their Eve’s.
A group photo taken at the end, so that Mikuni doesn’t only have baby pictures of Misono. Jeje offers to be the one to take the picture, but all of them insists he should be there to so they rig a camera up on a tree stump to take the pic.
Kousuke’s Christmas event at Osaka today~! Got the first row center block, and Kousuke sat right in front of me UvU ♡
he glanced at me several times, and I managed to catch one of the signed ball he threw towards the audience! Watch out y'all my catching skill is still on point ( •̀ᄇ• ́)ﻭ✧
Kou also praised me “you look great today! I love your beanie~” and yup he temembers me as always (灬ºωº灬) little did he know, I gave him the same beanie today! Nobody was able to give their present directly to Kousuke, so he won’t know it until he open my present (♡´艸`)
Another thing, Kou also gave us a marshmallow set with his faces printed on it, and a special christmas card!
Probably the best christmas ever so far,
Merry Christmas everybody! Have a wonderful one! 💖💖
Summary of Part 5: You and Dean try the whole “just friends” thing.
Word Count: 1850
A/N: So many more parts, next part out on Friday!
This is Halloween! This is Halloween!
You watched, half-amused and half-annoyed, as an animatronic Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King, emerged out of a giant pumpkin in the middle of Dean’s lawn as the music blared through the early evening darkness. The rest of his yard was decorated like an elaborate graveyard, complete with cobwebs and fog. Some of the graves had zombies emerging from them in various stages of decay, his porch was covered in intricately carved jack-o’-lanterns perching on bales of hay, and the house itself was lined in spooky orange lights.
There have been few times that Y/N has found herself in awe of other girls and in this moment the feeling comes when she
meets Irene who is resting against her car, sunglasses propped onto the top of
her head and pretty grin on her face. Four other girls are chattering happily
and holding onto various bags. They waste no time in introducing themselves.
Irene is quick to befriend her, asking various questions about how she met
everyone and how she’s glad they brought her around. Apparently there aren’t
enough girls around.
Namjoon had called them on their way there and they
immediately said yes, agreeing to meet up. They’re all very bright and giggly, Yeri and Joy seem to
be the most playful and as soon as they spot Jeongguk, Taehyung, and Jimin,
they begin to joke around. Meanwhile Wendy disappears to find snacks.
*Warning, this is a Halloween imagine that I wrote. It contains gory images and blood and all of those types of things, so if this makes you uncomfortable then don’t read. But you have been warned. Happy Halloween..*
It was finally Halloween night, your favourite night of the year. Halloween night was the night where you could dress up as anything you wanted and it was actually acceptable. It was also the night where you could eat as much sweet candies and foods that you wanted and even pull the most terrifying pranks on your friends and not get in trouble over it.
Unlike any other halloween, this halloween you actually made a complete change in your plans. This year instead of going to a party and getting wasted on all of the alcohol you could consume, you were going deep into the woods where you would be staying in a large cabin with your boyfriend Joe and your friends Zoe, Alfie, Marcus, Niomi, Tanya, Jim, Oli, Dan and Phil, Louise and last but not least Caspar.
Thanks to Zoe and Alfie who had rented a cabin before and absolutely adored the experience of being deep in the woods, they suggested to you and all of the youtube crew to rent out a large cabin and rest there for the night to give yourselves more of a halloween scare since you would be situated in the woods, one of the most overrated places where people stay in on Halloween night in the movies. You all had rented out a rental van, big enough to sit everyone and hold all of your luggage to drive away from the city and into the soothing countryside for the night.
Currently you were sitting at the very back of the van with your head nestled against Joe’s muscled arm and your fingers lacing together with Joe’s. “This should be a very fun night..” Joe chuckled, resting his head over yours, a chuckle leaving his lips as you gazed out the window seeing nothing but green fields pass by with the occasional herd of sheeps and cows here and there. Halloween was definitely your favourite time of the year, the scary stories and haunted houses gave you such an adrenaline that you grasped onto it tightly. You loved the whole build up to Halloween and visiting farms late at night where live actors would jump out at you and scare the daylight out of you completely. It also gave you the opportunity to listen out and hear new scary stories that you could use for when you’re surrounded by friends and it gave you the opportunity to pull out some new and scarier pranks each year.
“I can’t wait to hear all the scary stories that Oli claims to have..” You murmured, teasing Oli who was sat in front of you scrolling through the music he had stored away in his many playlists. “Hey! I have great scary stories and I promise that you won’t be able to sleep tonight because you’ll be so scared..” Oli smirked confidently, a giggle passing through your rose pink lips at the thought of not being able to sleep.
“In your dreams Oli. I’ve probably heard scarier stories compared to the ones you’ll be telling us tonight. You couldn’t scare a puppy..” You joked poking your tongue out amused at Oli as he gasped offended and turned away from you. “Well guys, I wouldn’t get so competitive now, leave all of this for tonight around the camp fire..” Zoe smiled through the mirror back at everyone as she drove down the cobbled road, the trees growing bigger and the landscape getting wider.
“Oh guys, not too scary please! I don’t do well with super scary stories..” Tanya whined, instantly uncomfortable with the talk about scary stories as she cowered into Jim who wrapped his arm protectively around her shoulders. “Don’t worry Tan, all of these stories are just made up. I’ll be here to keep you safe through the night anyway..” Jim smiled sweetly down to Tanya, kissing her temple lightly and holding her close in his arms.
“Get a room!” Dan shouted scrunching his eyes shut as Tanya and Jim both cooed at one another, making you ‘awh’ but also laugh at the sight of Dan hiding his face into his hands. “I don’t know how much longer I’ll be able to sit here..We’ve been sitting for at least five hours now..” Joe whispered in your ear, pressing a delicate kiss to your cheek making you smile. “This will be totally worth the drive. I packed away some sparklers that we could light and I’m pretty sure Zoe packed some glow sticks too and I’m sure there’ll be tons of fireworks somewhere close by..” You smiled up to Joe, your boyfriend of three long and happy years as you held his hand in yours, both enjoying the calm drive even though Joe was desperate to stretch his legs and catch some fresh air. “I didn’t realise that we’d be sat in a van for five hours, I thought we’d be allowed a bathroom break..” Joe huffed, running his free hand through his hair and resting his head against the clean window.
“Well I don’t think you’ll have to wait much longer now..” You spoke quietly, pointing out the large window to see that you were now parking outside of your lodge for the night. As you all stepped out of the bus, you all gathered into a semicircle and gazed up at the beautiful wooden cabin that stood gracefully before you.
“Maybe we should buy a house like this babe..” Joe smiled, wrapping his arms around you from behind as you all gazed up at the large wooden cabin, a small smile playing at your lips at the thought of moving out of Joe’s flat and into a house of your own, where you would both start a family.
“Guys, I know it’s Halloween but we aren’t actually in a horror movie. We’re acting like some family that’s just moved into the new area and we’re all looking at our new house lovingly but we don’t know it’s haunted. Let’s go in and scope this baby out! Anyways, I know I’ll be getting the biggest room!” Caspar joked, making a mad dash to the wooden front door of the cabin as you all scurried in after him excitedly.
As soon as you entered the cabin, immediately everyone’s luggage slipped from their fingertips and their jaws dropping to match. To your left, there was a large kitchen with a long, designed wooden table and soft plush chairs. To your right there was an open wide space area for the sitting room where a grand beige leather ‘L’ shaped sofa sat along with two large love seats and bean bags, all situated in front of the wide screen tv that was plaqued onto the stone chimney. This place was spectacular. It was almost as if you were stood inside of Barbie’s dream house, it was that stunning.
“Well guys it’s getting dusky. How about we whip up a bite to eat and then we can cruise on outside and roast some marshmallows and tell some scary stories?” Alfie suggested, raising a dark brow as he looked around at the group of you all, all of you nodding with satisfaction. “Okay, cool! So, Zoe, Marcus, Niomi and I will get cracking in the kitchen and maybe you guys could get started with getting the campfire ready?” Alfie smiled as you all reflected his smile back and nodded.
“Let’s get cracking!” Zoe cheered, fist pumping the air as herself and Niomi toddled into the kitchen with Marcus and Alfie following close behind.
“So, how about Dan, Phil, Caspar, Oli, Jim and myself go and collect the wood and you girls could go and grab the marshmallows and find some scary movies that we could watch later tonight?” Joe smiled at yourself, Tanya and Louise as you rolled your eyes playfully at how Joe didn’t want you or the girls to do any of the lifting.
“Fine by me, I just got my nails done and I am not getting them filthy, and I’m definitely not planning on getting a splinter!“ Louise stated, snapping her fingers and throwing her beautiful pink hair over her shoulder sassily as she pursed her lips and made her way to the bag she brought with her to retrieve the marshmallows and box sets of horror films she had brought along.
“See you at the campfire..” Joe chuckled, pecking your lips delicately before strolling out the backdoors and towards the woods.
It was now eleven o'clock and you were all gathered around the warm camp fire with mugs of hot chocolate filled with whipped cream and marshmallows along with marshmallows on thin wooden sticks to roast over the yellow and orange flames.
“No Oli, that definitely wasn’t scary..” Phil snickered as Oli finished up telling a so called ‘scary’ story about how a young teenage girl was home alone and then suddenly heard the breaking news about a psychopath murderer on the loose, and when she seen the image of him on tv, she saw him looking through the window, when in actual fact the murderer was in her house and in the end she was murdered. It was awful, the only good thing about this 'scary story’ was that Joe was making Oli look like a rodney by slagging him and his story whilst holding you closely into him as if you were afraid of the story being told, making himself look like a macho man to protect you.
“Oh c'mon! That was so scary!” Oli frowned, looking absolutely defeated with everyone’s remarks on his so called 'terrifying’ scary story, a small bickering argument happening between Dan, Phil, Oli and Joe as they discussed how the story was definitely not scary and how it was totally scary.
“Okay, Okay I have an even better piece of entertainment for you all..” Zoe laughed at the sight as everyone quietened down and nibbled on their roasted marshmallows. “I’ve kept it as a surprise..” She continued with a small smirk tugging at her lips, as you all looked to her with curious eyes. 'What on earth has she planned?' You thought to yourself, your hands wrapped around the warm mug of hot chocolate as you sipped on the hot liquid and cuddled up into Joe’s protective arms.
“Well, I know it’s halloween and we had planned to sit inside and watch a bunch of horror films, but I thought we could make this night a little more intriguing..” Zoe smiled sweetly, brushing a strand of her chestnut brown hair away from her face, everyone’s ears perking up at her words, wanting and craving to know more.
“I planned us a scavenger hunt!” She beamed as Tanya and Louise squealed with excitement and gasps of shock escaping from the lips of your group of friends. Your eyes watched Zoe intently as she pulled out a folder of papers from behind her and passed one out to everyone. “The only little trick is..that this stuff isn’t in the house..It’s out in the woods..and you’re only allowed your torch light to guide the way..” She accounted, looking around to everyone as they nodded with a fever of excitement. “I recommend everyone goes with one person, for example Dan and Phil are one team, Tanya and Jim are another team, Marcus and Niomi and so on..” Zoe finalised the details as your eyes danced over the scavenger hunt list, your adrenaline rising and pulsing through your veins.
“What about me?” Louise pouted, looking around the circle. “Everyone has a team mate but me..” Louise sighed, her hands fidgeting with the list before her. “Oh Chummy, you can team up with me and Alfie..” Zoe smiled over to Louise who smiled happily back at Zoe. “Okay, so whoever finds all of the stuff wins a special prize..” Zoe teased, clapping her hands together as the crackle from the fire and the wood sounded into your ears.
“Sweet, what’s the prize?” Marcus asked, his eyebrows lifting with excitement as his marshmallow turned from black to a soft brown colour. “You’ll just have to win the game and find out, won’t you?” Caspar chuckled, standing to his feet as Zoe began to pass out torch lights, standing to her own feet as you all began to bundle up into your warm coats and scarves.
“Alright guys, good luck..Don’t be too scared of the dark..” Zoe smiled smugly before you all set off into the dark, hand in hand with your loved ones as the moon illuminated your path way.
“Do you want me to wrap you up in my big strong arms and protect you from the monsters babe?” Joe asked, a playful twinkle sparkling in his eyes as his hand stayed moulded with yours and his other hand holding the torch light.
“Oh my hero..” You gasped, placing your hand against your forehead, acting like you were a damsel in distress needing your saviour, making Joe laugh. “Okay babe, we’ve been walking for twenty minutes, what are we even looking for?” Joe quizzed, shining his light down to the piece of paper you held, as you took a breath and began to recite what was listed on the paper. “Basically we need to find a black eyeliner, a pumpkin seed, a spider, a witches hat, a frankenstein mask, Anything purple and something orange..erm..a spider, a trick or treat bag, a broom, a white sheet, an eyeball and a spell book..” You breathed, looking up into Joe’s warm, blue loving eyes as you stayed close to his side.
“Oh that will only talk about five hours..” Joe huffed as the yellow, brown, orange and red leaves crunched underneath your shoes, a breeze spiralling by making a shiver travel down your spine, a small laugh slipping from your lips as you pressed your face into your maroon coloured scarf.
“Oh shush, this is going to be fun..” You scolded, nudging your hip against Joe’s as you walked amongst the leaves and twigs, listening to them crunch and crackle underneath you as you both walked together, the torch light guiding you forwards.
“You know, maybe we could do something else..I mean, we are in the woods. Just the two of us..and we could get up to so much fun..” Joe whispered as his hand suddenly left yours, only for his arm to snake its way around your waist as he pushed your back against a tree, his lips attaching to the soft spot on your neck, your eyes closing in satisfaction. “Oh, really?” You breathed hotly, leaning your head back further so Joe had more access to your neck, your skin tingling under his touch, his hair tickling your jaw as you sighed in satisfaction, allowing your fingertips to wander through Joe’s soft locks of hair.
Joe’s hands began to slide up and down your sides, before resting on the small of your back as he maneuvered his lips away from the sensitive skin on your neck and to your soft, plump rose lips, kissing you deeply and pressing your bodies together making your heart rate pick up immediately. Suddenly you both jumped away from one another’s lips hearing a loud, blood curdling scream that could most definitely be heard from ten miles away.
“What was that?” You whispered quietly, so quiet that you almost didn’t hear yourself. Your eyes darted from side to side in panic and in search from where the scream came from. “It was probably just Niomi dared to scream to frighten everyone..” Joe mumbled, trying to attach his lips back to yours but you gently pressed your hand to his chest and pushed him back slightly, your nerves on edge from that desperate shriek. “Maybe we should check..or ring someone just to make sure that everyone is alright..” You whispered, licking your lips feeling them go dry as your fingers fondled with the material of Joe’s shirt.
“Y/N..” He sighed, looking down into your alerted and panicked eye/colour eyes as he tried to distract you from worrying. “We’re fine..It’s Halloween night..everyone will be trying to scare one another..” Joe soothed, keeping his hand pressed to the small of your back before he puffed out his cheeks and sighed deeply. “How about we go and try find something from the list, yeah?" He smiled, pressing a kiss to your temple as he led you away from the tree before he pointed his torch light back down to the list of items you were to hunt for. "How about the trick or treat bag? You can’t fit a trick into a treat bag..unless the trick is that there is no treat and it’s just a bag..” He pondered, looking deep in thought as you burst into a fit of laughter, instantly forgetting about the worrying scream from moments ago.
“You’re such a dork..” You giggled, kissing Joe’s cheek before returning to try and follow the clues as best as you could to find this 'precious’ trick or treat bag.
“Your/Nickname this is the worst scavenger hunt..we’ve been doing this for at least an hour and a half now and the only thing that’s been interesting is listening to the guys and girls try and scare us..I’m getting bored..I’m just tempted to go back to the cabin and sleep..” Joe grumbled, swinging his hand back and forth with yours and shining his light down on the ground before you, a heavy wind brushing by you both as the trees swayed and danced with the wind.
It’s pretty much true. Yourself and Joe have both been searching and hunting for the items on the scavenger hunt list, and yet it’s been well over an hour now and you’ve found absolutely nothing, but the only thing you have been noticing is that your group of friends have been screaming a lot more; but not just any scream, it was more of a horrifying desperate scream and you’ve just settled it down to the idea that since it’s dark in the woods and that it’s a bit of a competition of trying to come first place by finding everything on the list, then everyone was trying to scare one another by screaming, like those desperate girls from the stories Oli and Caspar told earlier around the camp fire.
“Don’t be like that Joe..You’ve done plenty of these with Jim around London..This is the first Halloween we’re actually doing something productive instead of getting wasted..” You pouted, looking up to Joe as you both walked by the pathway of trees that surrounded you everywhere. “Anyways, I want to see what the prize-” You began, walking ahead of Joe before wincing as your foot got caught on a twig, causing you to stumble forwards and fall on your knees. “Shit babe, are you alright?” Joe asked worriedly, his steps quickening behind you. “I’m fine, I’m fine..but the ground is really sticky and warm-…” You answered back with confusion, your eyebrows furrowing together as you held your hands up to Joe’s torch light before a loud, frightening shriek left your mouth at the sight before you.
Your hands were covered in oozing, red blood. But not just any blood, it was Tanya’s blood. Your legs felt weak as you looked down to Tanya’s body, her lips as blue as the deep ocean and her face as pale as milk, blood oozing from her lips and from her stomach, scratches on her cheeks and her body laying limp on the now bloody autumn leaves.
“This is a joke..This is a sick, twisted joke guys!” Joe yelled, anger evident in his voice as his arm wrapped tighter around you, pulling you into his chest protectively and shielding your eyes from the sight of your close friend Tanya who laid in her own pool of blood. Joe flickered his torch light from side to side to scan for anyone’s presence, waiting for somebody to jump out and laugh in both of of your faces about how they got you good.
No one did.
Tears prickled against the brim of your water line as your breathing became shallow. “Joe, tell me this is a joke..this is a joke, right?” You asked, your hands shaking as your heart races and pounded against your chest heavily, making you almost positive that your heart was going to break free from your chest.
“I don’t know..I-I..I’ve no idea..” Joe whispered, his grip tightening if possible around your waist as you walked carefully away from the horrifying scene behind you and towards another pathway of trees. As you both threaded along the leaves as quietly as you could, you managed to spot Dan and Phil who were resting against a tree, there heads down and studying the scavenger list.
“Look! It’s Dan and Phil! Dan!” Joe called out, hurrying both of your foot steps as he moved you both to the tree were Dan and Phil were both pressed against. “Guys, I don’t know if you’ve seen this or if it’s some twisted joke..but Tanya..she’s back there and she’s bleeding heavily and has bad wounds..” Joe talked, his words spitting out from his mouth quickly as he crouched down beside Phil and placed his hand on his shoulder. Suddenly you watched as Phil’s head rolled to the side, revealing a large and deep knife wound on his throat, and a large gash against Dans throat, blood pouring and mixing together as their bodies paled and your stomach churned.
“Joe..” You whispered, your hands flying to your mouth as your stomach churned quickly and your sight blurred. “This isn’t happening..No..This isn’t real..” You broke down, your mind and stomach spinning like a carousel as you clutched onto Joe’s arm for dear life and watched his eyes drink in the sight before him, his fists clenching and his eyes narrowing at the sight in front of him.
Both of your heads turned hearing the snapping of a twig. “Who’s there!?” Joe yelled angrily, pushing you behind him as his flash light turned to the side only for the flash light to slip from Joe’s fingers. There was Louise, her eyes wide open like she was caught stealing a cookie from the biscuit jar and a large butcher knife wedged into her skull, blood pouring down her face and down the side of her head turning what her once healthy glowing skin was into a crimson blood colour.
Tears escalated down your cheeks as your stomach churned before emptying itself by the tree behind you. 'This is a nightmare’ You thought, the contents inside of your stomach travelling up through your stomach and out onto what was once happy autumn leaves. “What the fu*ck is happening!?” Joe demanded, his fist slamming by the tree beside him as he flinched away from the sight of Louise, his sisters best friend and the girl he would consider as an older sister.
“Joe..we’re not safe..” You panicked, your breathing becoming quicker as your hand held Joe’s tightly. Joe retrieved his flash light in a panic only for his nimble, ice cold and shaking fingers to allow it to slip through his fingers and crash against the mushy ground, his legs collapsing underneath him. You followed his gaze, as slowly as you could only to feel your heart stop and your body feel faint.
Swinging from the branches were Caspar and Oli, the wind blowing their bodies back and forth in the wind as they dangled from a rope that hung around their neck, their bodies skinned and their clothes torn and decorated in their blood, their eyes shut and bodies blue and white.
“Casp..Oli..” Joe whispered, his voice cracking. Joe shuffled to press his back against the tree, not wanting to look at the horrific sight of two of his best friends in the world, flailing lifelessly in the air. “Joe..Oh Joe.What’s going on?” You frowned, kneeling in front of Joe as you his his face into the crook of your neck, not wanting him to look at the sight of his best friends hanging dead and skinned before him.
“What’s happening? I-I don’t understand Joe..” You frowned, your cheeks and Joe’s hair growing wetter and wetter by the second as the tears pooled from your once excited eye/colour eyes and now they filled with fear, worry and confusion. “I wish I could tell you..But I promise you that, the bastard who did this..He’ll be dead once I’m finished with him..” Joe growled, his arms enveloping you as you eyes him, watching him hold back the tears that threatened to fall from his eyes and cascade down his cheeks, but Joe never liked to show his emotions and especially now that you were situated in a dangerous, life threatening situation, he definitely didn’t want to show the fear that was burning the insides of him and itching on his skin.
“We need to go..” You whispered, scrambling to your feet in a hurry of panic and worry, not wanting to meet the demon or murderer of your best friends, “We need to go now.” You spoke, your voice trembling but staying strong to let Joe know that you both needed to get the hell out of here since this is not fun and games anymore.
“Leaving so soon?” An all too familiar voice spoke, both yours and Joe’s eyes went wide with fear. Your heads both cautiously turned, to see where the voice came from as Joe took hold, of his torch light and shone it in the direction of where the voices came from.
Your breath immediately caught in your throat as you stumbled to stand and pull Joe with you, stepping back away from the person before you.
Alfie stood before you, his side leaning against the tree, a large knife covered in crimson blood in his right hand as he ran his finger tips across the edge of the knife.
A menacing and evil smile evident on his lips, his white cotton t-shirt now a new red colour, a mixture of all of your friends blood.
“What the f*ck are you doing Alfie? What sort of sick thing are you up to?” Joe spat viciously, your hand moving to his biceps and clasping it around them, tugging him back as he went to swing a punch at Alfie, who was now cackling.
“Oh, my sweet Joseph..I am so happy that I left you and your lover girl for last..I’ve been waiting for this moment for months.” Alfie spoke, his voice so calm as if what was happening around you was completely normal. You whipped your head to the side hearing two loud, heart stopping screams.
Your heart was racing and you couldn’t keep up with your thoughts as your vision blurred over with tears and swayed side to side. Your hand was tight in Joe’s as your chest rose and fell quickly at everything happening around you, your entire world spiralling and crashing down before you and there was nothing you could do to bring your friends back.
“Where’s Zoe?” Joe demanded, his voice stone cold and hard as a rock, his eyes that were once a happy shade of blue are now a harsh, dark blue, laced with anger.
“Oh, don’t worry about Zoe, sure she’s right here with me..” Alfie smiled as if Joe was crazy, his hand leaning down to the ground as his fist wrapped around something brown and thick. Your heart stopped and your body went cold and numb, watching Alfie pull out a detached head. Zoe’s head. Blood was oozing from her throat and her eyes were shut closed, her hair was wrapped around Alfie’s fist, as he smiled sweetly down to Zoe’s head.
Joe’s face fell and drained of its healthy colour, his knees began to shake as he processed the scene before him. Suddenly Joe let loose of your hand and charged towards Alfie, kicking him in the shin before tackling him to the ground in a fury. “Joe!” You shrieked running quickly after him as you watched Joe swing a punch to Alfie’s right cheek, his head flying forward with the motion as Alfie tried to kick Joe off of him.
“My sister loved you! She loved you and did everything for you, and this? This is how you pay her back!?” Joe yelled, his hands gripping at the collar on Alfie’s shirt as he shook him back and forward relentlessly with fury. Your hands gripped at the back of Joe’s shirt, desperately trying to pull him back and off of Alfie, until something caught your eye.
You quickly crawled over to the knife, stretching your hand over to take it until a painful shock sent through your hand, a cry for help leaving your lips as you looked to see a black, leather boot crushing your hand. You moved your eyes slowly upwards to see who was creating the pain in your hand, only to scream louder at the sight and shove your eyes into your other hand.
There in front of you, dangled three bloody, detached and scarred heads. Niomi, Marcus and Jim. Tears ran freely down your cheeks as you gasped for breath, your body shaking with fear and your heart in your throat. The leather booth released your now crumpled hand, your knees backing you away carefully and swiftly, the man with the leather boot revealing himself into the light making Alfie and Joe stop fighting, as Joe gasped loudly, whilst Alfie smiled evilly.
“Ah, you got the three of them, did you?” He asked, his eyes sparkling at the sight of three of his good friends handling decapitated from their bodies.
“I told you that I would..” Josh smiled, stepping towards you and Joe who was now standing to his feet and immediately guarding you.
Josh and Alfie stood beside one another, innocent yet menacing smiles on both of their lips as they eyed their final piece of prey. “Josh..What..What the hell is going on!?” Joe yelled, his fists clenching as his throat ran dry at the sight before him.
“Surprise..” Josh smiled sweetly, dropping the heads that belonged to your close and dearest friends as if they were nothing, only to swing a dirtied, bloody knife around his ring finger, his eyes trailing both of your bodies with hunger and determination. Your hands shook and your tears escalated down your cheeks quickly, as you bit your lip to bite back from screaming.
“Josh..I..you were one of Caspar’s best mates! What are you doing!?” Joe growled, his eyes turning darker and his voice deep with dark and his voice hinting with betrayal from what was happening. “Oh..sweet, innocent Joe..you just don’t understand, do you?” Josh smirked, eyeing both of you as Joe backed you both away from Josh and Alfie whom were both holding knives drenched in sticky blood. “What don’t I understand?” Joe bit back, his eyebrows raising as he kept his guard on the surroundings of you both, making sure that you were far away from the two so called 'friends'
“Let me explain..for the two of us..” Josh began, smiling to Alfie who nodded back, folding his arms across his chest and looking at you both. “You see Joe..All of you..were my competition. Your sister, yours and my best friend Caspar..All of the friendship group..were mine and Alfie’s competition and you all needed to be eliminated. One by one, every single one of you. The most festive time of the year for all Hallows’..and the most perfect time to kill you all slowly..All of you were becoming more and more successful..book tours..make up brands, clothing brands, stationary brands..You were all getting everything, and what were me and Alfie getting?” Josh spoke as you cowered behind Joe, your heart racing with panic and looking around desperately for something to defend yourselves with. “Nothing. We were thrown into the shadows, not getting any attention. We’re the talented ones! We’re the ones who deserve the awards and all the glory and spotlights, but instead we were thrown into the dark, with not even a torch light. Alfie began loosing followers and subscribers and he wasn’t getting any new offers from his book publishing company or any sort of magazines. We were isolated, and everyone completely forgot about us and began to watch Zoe, Louise, Caspar and you more. So that’s why, we decided, it was only fair that since all of you have travelled the world and achieved so much..that you need to go, and give me and Alfie some time to shine and what better way than to just kill you all? Alfie planted the idea of a scavenger hunt into Zoe’s head and made her do us up a list..and little did she know that the events would turn tonight..So now you won’t be able to ever steal the spotlight again.” Josh smirked, his hand running over the chilling knife as a lump formed in your throat, your lips trembling from fear as Josh backed you back against the tree, the point of the knife running down Joe’s chest.
As soon as the knife trailed to Joe’s neck, Joe’s knee came in contact with with Josh’s groin and sending him flying to the ground in pain, as Alfie rampaged up to you both and knocking Joe to the ground, slashing his side with the knife sending horrifying, spine chilling scream left his lips.
Your body felt numb and cold as you watched Joe bundle up in pain, you immediately reacted as you screamed loudly for help and shoved Alfie off of Joe’s body as he aimed for his neck, blood covering your clothes instantly and staining your hands as you wrapped your hands around Alfie’s neck, watching him squirm underneath your body.
Suddenly two hands caught your waist from behind and threw you off of Alfie, crashing you against the tree before you squealed in pain feeling a sharp, heart stopping gash glide across your thigh.
“There’s no point in trying to fight it Y/N. You’re going to die. You and lover boy.” Josh spat as he held the knife above his head. You clenched your eyes shut tight in deer and not wanting to watch was going to happen. Suddenly your eyes shot open hearing a gun shot. You watched Josh’s body hit the ground as another gun shot rang in your ears and sent Alfie back down to his knees.
“This is the police! Put your weapons down and your hands behind your back!” A man shouted through a bull horn as men in bright yellow uniforms ran out from behind the trees and immediately tackled Josh and Alfie, handcuffing them both as they yelled curse words and swore that they would get you both as soon as they got out.
Your stomach churned with a sick feeling and you looked to Joe who was wincing, tears slipping down his cheeks as you trembles and scooted over to his body, peeling off your cardigan and pressing it down on his wound. “Shh..shh.You’ll be okay Suggy..I-I have you..You’re going to be just fine..” You whispered, a weak smile twitching at your lips as you sniffled your tears and softly kisses the side of Joe’s head and brushed away his tears.
“We’ll be okay, I promise you..” You whispered, your voice cracking as Joe peeled his eyes open and gazed up into your eyes. “I..I thought he was going to kill me..I’d rather him kill me…” Joe spoke, his voice barley audible as you shook your head quickly at his words. “Please don’t say that..We’re okay now..The two of us..We’ll be okay..We’ll make it..” You whispered, wrapping your arms around his shoulders lightly as you cried into his hair, forgetting about your own gushing injury and just wanting to make sure Joe was okay an that he’d get better.
Tears of fear.
Tears of happiness.
Tears of relief.
“Excuse me miss, these men need to check you both out and get you to the hospital immediately and then you’ll both be questioned by the police, is that alright?” A man with a bushy black moustache announced, walking up to you and Joe as men from the ambulances rushed over to Joe’s body and lifted him onto a gurney carefully.
“Y-yeah.. That’s fine..” You smiled, still shaken up from everything that has happened. You watched police men tape the trees and surrounding areas as you turned away from the sight of your best friends being placed into body bags, your heart breaking and crumbling into thousands of pieces at the thought of never seeing or hearing your best friends voices.
“Your both very lucky that your friend made that phone call calling for help..You both would have been gone..” The man, whose name tag red Murray read. Your eyes went wide at his words as your hands shook. “A call?” You asked, your hands brushing the tears from your cheeks. “Yes, yes. Her name was Niomi..She made the call and just as she told us where she was, the line was cut off and we set out immediately.” Murray explained as your hands flew to your mouth, as loud sobs left your mouth. You thought back to Niomi and how she was in Josh’s hands, her head separated from her body.
“I’m so very sorry for everything that happened tonight miss..” Murray spoke softly, rubbing your back as men from Joe’s ambulance lifted you onto a gurney and brought you into Joe’s ambulance, were you watched men crowd around him and place tubes here and there.
Your fingers softly brushed against Joe’s, before Joe took your hand in his firmly and connected your fingers together, his head turning to face you as he gazed deeply into your eyes and gave your hand a gentle squeeze and mouthed, “I love you.”
Things were going to be hard and they were going to be difficult. Tonight has traumatised you both, but now you need one another more than ever. Everything will be alright, once you had Joe and Joe had you.
I hope you enjoyed this imagine as much as I enjoyed writing it! Please tell me if you did enjoy it and give it a vote and maybe drop a comment? All of my love and I hope you have the happiest and scariest Halloween ever xx
“No thanks, love,” Lena murmurs without looking up from her tablet, her hand moving to cover her mug of cocoa.
It’s when the room falls eerily still that she realizes she’s said the wrong thing.
When she does look up, Kara’s frozen in front of her with the bag of marshmallows still in hand, hovering just above Lena’s MIT mug.
“Huh?” Kara’s staring at her openly, eyebrows knit together and Lena’d laugh if she weren’t so sure that she’s just opened a can of worms she’d never planned to open. Kara recovers quickly enough, mouth closing as her look of confusion is replaced with one of concern. She sets the marshmallow bag onto the coffee table before leaning over to press the back of her hand to Lena’s forehead. “Are you feeling okay? You never say no to marshmallows.”
Actually, Lena thinks, I never say no to you.
“I ah—,” she starts, eyeing the bag of sugar and contemplating shoving a handful into her mouth just to avoid this conversation. But really, there’s no way to sustain this lie—it’s only December third and Lena’s already had a couple sugar induced headaches. “I don’t, ah, actually like marshmallows in my hot chocolate.”
Kara’s eyes go wide first, narrowed second. Lena reaches over slowly, sliding her tablet to one side as she brings the mug to her lips, taking a small sip and then, well, hiding behind the oversized glassware.
“You don’t like marshmallows in your hot chocolate,” Kara parrots even as she reaches for the bag of marshmallows, pulling out a couple and popping them into her mouth. “You don’t like marshmallows in your hot chocolate?” She shoves in couple more, cheeks puffing due to volume. “Why do you hate love?”
Or, at least, that’s what Lena guesses that she said. Marshmallows and all. Laughing anyway, Lena sets her mug to the side and reaches for Kara’s hand, pulling her down onto the couch beside her and she says, “Too much sugar gives me a headache.”
“Oh.” Kara swallows, her expression shifting away from incredulity to concern once more. “You should’ve told me!” she huffs, worry softening her pout into something sweeter. “I can make you hot cocoa without marshmallows.”
“I know,” Lena says simply, shifting to face Kara, throwing her legs over her lap and leaning against the arm of the couch. There’s more she could say, more about how Kara’s drive to give Lena the Christmas she never had as a child was just so sweet, that it made Lena melt and made it hard for her to say anything at all, really. She could probably spend about an hour telling Kara that this was the first time anyone had bothered to do things for her when they weren’t paid to do so and Lena had been more than happy to just enjoy the experience of being cared for.
But it’s only two in the afternoon and Lena thinks that all that would be just a little too heavy for a conversation about hot chocolate. She will tell her, though, probably soon. Make sure Kara knows what it means to Lena—what she means to Lena.
For now though, Lena shifts again, reaching up to smooth Kara’s fly aways back from her face, tuck them behind her ear. “Now,” she grins. “What was that about love?”
Hi hi hi I was wondering if you have ever heard and what you think of the summer camp!au ? In which both counterparts of the ship are counselors, specifically. (or in which both are campers I don't know whichever works best) I absolutely love your headcanons, so if the idea sparks ideas, I would be thrilled to hear what you think about it uwu
Summer camp is like My Thing. Can we talk about the perfection that is the slow burn jily hogwarts summer camp au??
The American version of summer camp doesn’t exist in the UK but imagine the following conversation:
Wiz 1: you wouldn’t believe what I heard from those Americans at the Quidditch cup…
Wiz 2: what?
the muggles send their kids away for the entire summer. they call it camp.
Wiz 2: what do they do?
Wiz 1: shoot arrows and stuff
Wiz 2: sounds fun. is there supervision?
Wiz 1: just other teenagers
Wiz 2: but we already send our kids away for the entire school year
Wiz 1: remember the thing with the dragon last summer?
Wiz 2: …
Wiz 2: so how do we get one of these for our kids?
So like two random wizards start an American muggle summer camp and can you imagine the fuckery that would take place. EVEN IF THIS DIDN’T HAPPEN it would be fantastic.
For magic summer camp, all the above head canons apply. What if it was just a random Americanized Hogwarts summer camp though?
Four teams for competitive purposes – a boys’ cabin and girls’ cabin from each age group included.
McGonagall can be the person doing the day to day camp program director and Dumbledore is the eccentric, probably batty camp owner.
The eleven-year-old Marauders are clearly the four campers in the Gryffindor cabin for their age group. Frank as their counselor is cool for me. What are girls? They don’t know. They’re too busy having fun! They definitely roam the entire camp, even the forbidden parts, and make a detailed map. They have hideaways in the woods and in the attic of the main lodge and there’s an old mine shaft they found that serves as a perfect secret headquarters. Baby marauders building a secret Camp Fort is also pretty important to me. Rivalry with Filch, the cantankerous felon caretaker, and his creepy cat Mrs. Norris.
That rivalry is second only to James’s rivalry with Snape. It’s just…a multi-year prank war and rivalry, okay? Think the first twenty minutes of the parent trap, but better. I’ve been involved in camp prank wars–shit gets REAL. the last one i started ended up with a doll’s head staple gunned to my cabin wall, a sprinkler in the girls’ dorm, and culminated in a boy falling through the ceiling of the girls’ bunkroom. IMAGINE bees and snakes and rips in swimming trunks and sinking each other’s canoes and pond moss in shampoo bottles.
Lily is having, like, the time of her life. Hiking and crafts and singing and canoes…it’s all…great. No Petunia is a nice bonus too! Her friends are great and she doesn’t get to see Snape as much, but whatever. She and James love camp and their friends and the entire deal. James excels at field games and everything and Lily is like the camp golden girl who all the counselors love.
They run in some same circles but largely stay off each others’ radar…until the fifth summer.
HOLY SHIT, EVANS HAS BOOBS. idiocy intensifies. it’s great:
He’s never an out and out dick, except he shows off and it always backfires:
shooting his arrow at the wrong bulls eye
setting his marshmallows on fire for four consecutive weeks because he’s distracted by her her hair shining in the firelight
climbing a tree and he falls out and hurts his ankle
rewriting wonderwall song lyrics in a thinly veiled ode to her
getting them all lost on hikes because he’s focusing on lily’s thighs in short shorts instead of the compass
breaks his glasses in volleyball because he was watching evans’ perfect serve
He doesn’t ask her out, but he does offer to walk her home from campfire and ask if she wants his dessert and a third smore. He’s definitely an idiot and she is ambivalent at best. THERE DEFINITELY needs to be some end of year catastrophe on par with snape’s worst memory…like James and Sirius sabotage Snape’s act in the talent show and Lily tries to intervene and Snape is a dick to her in front of everyone. It’s the end of their friendship, etc.
sixth year is where the glory glory starts because COUNSELORS IN TRAINING, bitches. I love the idea of Remus being one of the other Counselor in Training for Gryffindor, James and Sirius being lifeguards, and Peter being kitchen help or the nurse’s aid or something.
James randomly dropping by the arts and crafts session and helping make lanyards and he probably wants to see remus but who knew he could be normal?
really delicately handling a girl starting her period in the pool
a third year breaks her arm climbing a tree to get a frisbee and it’s definitely not supposed to be at that angle but james doesn’t lose his cool even though lily almost passes out
james and lily being the official campfire starters because lily’s been camping her entire life and james is great with fire but no one trusts him to do it solo
remus gets sick and james steps up and helps lily co-lead the kids on a night hike and sleepover to the best star-gazing spot on the grounds. he makes up a bunch of constellations but it keeps them all laughing all night.
they join forces to host the one dance and instead of the usual awkard affair it’s awesome and everyone raves about it for two weeks…no one got pregnant, that they know of, so great.
they may have made out, but that doesn’t count.
they do such a great job with the dance that McGonagall puts them in charge of the annual talent show
it’s only so-so, but only because two second years signed up and were so nervous they got sick on the stage
no one could blame them for that, so…
all hands on deck to prepare for color wars, three days of striaght up competition to close out the summer. winner gets the trophy–a golden toilet seat–above their table for the entire next summer. they have SO MUCH FUN and it’s glorious and gryffindor wins and even though they aren’t participating…it’s the best.
lily maybe cries a little on farewell day and they promise to keep in touch.
lily and james are chosen as the official gryffindor counselors which is, like, the honor of honors, second only to being color days captains and they’ve already done that.
everyone has bets on when they’ll start dating.
the campers make up songs about them
gossip is RAMPANT
lily blushes every time one of her twelve year olds says ‘here comes jaaammmeeessss’ and vice versa
they spend hours sitting in the one cozy chair in the staff cabin planning out the next week’s activities, leave their sleeping kids to the CITs and take late night hikes, argue during their tactical capture the flag meetings, co-prank planning, working together to solve crises
a second year finds them making out in the lake house on the fourth week
You stared at the giant smile that sat on your boyfriends face with worried eyes. “Seokmin,” you began, but, he cut you off by running his fingers over your cheek, “Y/N-ah, it’s fine..” You sighed heavily and watched as he skillfully removed the marshmallow, from the fork we used to roast it on, and slide it onto a graham cracker with a piece of chocolate. He quickly made another one and managed not to burn anything, this time. Last time, we began freaking out when he set the marshmallow on fire and threw it into a towel causing that to catch on fire. He then spent the next few seconds screaming and running around our kitchen before I threw water on the burning towel and scolded him for running around in front of a fire and destroying a perfectly good towel.
I watched as he ate a toasted marshmallow, some of the gooey texture sticking to his lips. I walked in front of him and kissed the marshmallow off his lips. He placed his hands on my hips and gripped them tightly, kissing me back. My hands found their way around his neck and my body somehow was lifted, so I sat on the counter behind me. Seokmin stood in between my legs, one of his hands moved to cup my face as his lips moved swiftly against mine. We pulled apart to look into each other eyes. His dark brown bangs hung over his half-lidded eyes and his nose pressed against mine. His lips parted and moist from saliva. His cheeks flamed pink and his soft gasping breaths hit my lower lip. He broke out into his award winning smile and he said against my lips, “I love you Y/N..” He pecked my lips down to my neck, kissing my exposed skin. I pulled back and looked into his eyes, “I love you too, Seokmin…”
