Happy Independence Day to all of my American friends!
So, this July 4 themed, modern royalty drabble is very loosely based on Prince Harry’s infamous trip to Las Vegas but different because it’s with Klaroline : )
This is dedicated to my favourite angry baker @megansarah11. Happy belated birthday, luv!
Justice and Independence
Lobby - MGM Grand Hotel - Las Vegas, Nevada - July 3
“Why did you decide to get married on the Fourth of July weekend in Las Vegas again?” Caroline insisted, pushing her way through the throng gathered outside the MGM Grand, bags in hand.
“Because we met at this hotel three years ago on Independence Day. I thought it was romantic returning here to exchange vows,” Lexi replied. “Don’t tell me you don’t remember, Care? You were there when we met, although the margaritas might have affected your memory.”
“Very funny,” she scowled.
Of course she remembered that weekend. Bonnie had been dumped by her worthless, cheating boyfriend and Katherine had convinced the four girls to take a road trip. One that, unbeknownst to Caroline, would end in Nevada. Las Vegas to be exact. Katherine argued that had she told her their destination Caroline wouldn’t have come and she was right. Vegas just wasn’t her style she’d insisted, to which Katherine replied with an exaggerated eye roll.
Caroline wasn’t boring, well that’s what she told herself anyway. She’d always been too busy during college striving for the best grades for her future career and it had paid off. She was the newly-appointed director of a not-for-profit organisation and couldn’t think of a better or more fulfilling way to spend her time. In fact, she was due in Malawi next month to tour the much needed sanitation infrastructure they’d built in one of the poorest villages.
If she was being honest, the overt opulence of Vegas didn’t quite sit well with Caroline. But Lexi was one of her closest friends, so she’d never begrudge her a dream wedding. She’d always liked Matt and had to admit they made the perfect couple.
He was the star quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers and had been on a team trip when they’d met poolside. Their chemistry had been instantaneous and Caroline had never seen Lexi so happy and that look on Matt’s face when they were together was enough to convince Caroline he was equally as besotted.
Feelings aside, Caroline was determined to survive the weekend. She was one of four bridesmaids and knew she had to make this occasion perfect for Lexi.
“Seriously?” Katherine groaned. “What’s with the hold-up? I need to get to the spa pronto and combat this dry skin thanks to this stifling desert air.”
“It shouldn’t be a moment Miss,” the receptionist assured. “We just had an unexpected VIP guest check-in.”
“What are we, chopped liver?” She muttered under her breath.
“Who are you exactly?” Caroline teased, knowing the celebrity was Matt and his teammates, not them. He had a last minute practice session and so was arriving later that day.
“Well, that would explain the traffic madness outside,” Bonnie huffed, placing her bags on the ground with a bang. “Last time I checked I wasn’t your personal porter, Katherine. We’re only here for the weekend, what the hell do you have in here?”
“I need to be prepared for any occasion, Bon. So anyway, who’s this mystery VIP?” Katherine purred, leaning across the desk and exposing some extra cleavage on purpose. “Anyone we’d know?”
“My lips are sealed,” he uttered, his eyes reluctantly diverting from her cleavage. “Looks like your rooms are ready and our wedding planner has said she’ll come up shortly to finalise the details for tomorrow.”
“Hallelujah,” Anna sighed, joining them at the front desk. “I hope there’s going to be a nice goodies basket included too?”
“You practically ate like a three course meal on the drive over, Anna. Do you ever think about anything else?”
“Ah, no,” she grinned. “Come on ladies, let’s get this party started.”
Skyloft Suite - Two hours later
“These lights are bloody impressive,” Enzo whistled, taking in the view of the famous Las Vegas strip from the suite window as the sun slipped lazily over the horizon in streaks of bright oranges and pinks.
“Says the Vegas virgin,” Klaus smirked from his place in the hotel spa.
“We can’t all be Princes and travel the world,” he scoffed. “I’m just a lowly protective services agent who’s lucky to even get a vacation given your gruelling schedule of social events Romeo.”
“You’re welcome to take my place, Enzo.”
Although people liked to think he had the perfect life, Klaus hated all of the unwanted scrutiny and attention his position attracted. His siblings seemed to accept the responsibility far better than he ever had and Klaus was more than happy to let them do that while he enjoyed himself to the fullest, starting with July Fourth weekend in Vegas.
“I’m not sure you mind too much when it comes to protecting Rebekah,” Klaus responded, sending his body guard a knowing smile. Although not public knowledge, the attraction between Enzo and his younger sister and princess was well known amongst their entourage. It had been simmering for some time but the Queen didn’t look too kindly upon such an uneven match for obvious reasons.
“You know more than anyone else about my professionalism,” he responded tartly. It was true and Klaus wished his grandmother could see just what an honourable match he would be for the Princess, if she bothered to get to know him. “Which is why I’m going to tell you…”
“Please, enough with the lectures,” Klaus groaned.
“Well, I wouldn’t be doing my job if…”
“Last time I checked you’re my bodyguard, not my mother, mate.”
“Well, someone has to be, Klaus.”
“You’ve been around Rebekah too long,” Klaus shot back, sending his brother a dirty look. “Now, how about a whiskey? I’m absolutely parched.”
Morimoto Restaurant - Four hours later
“To the Bride and Groom,” Anna toasted, raising her champagne flute in the air.
Matt, Katherine’s brother and Anna’s boyfriend Jeremy and his NFL teammates Jesse and Tyler had arrived a few hours earlier and the bridal party was enjoying the rehearsal dinner at the famed Japanese restaurant at the MGM Grand.
The rest of the table repeated her sentiments, clinking their glasses together in celebration. Caroline felt the tension in her body slowing start to ebb away, finally beginning to relax. That massage at the spa earlier was just what she needed. Maybe a wedding in Vegas wasn’t going to be so bad.
It certainly wasn’t going to be your typical wedding, with only the bridal party attending and the small reception taking place at one of the private cabanas with July 4 themed fare. They wanted their wedding to resemble how they met after all.
“Does anyone know who this mysterious VIP is staying at the hotel?” Katherine asked the table, looking specifically in Matt’s direction. She’d been stalking the hallways hoping to find out who was staying at the MGM Grand but no luck so far. Caroline had to give her friend points for dogged determination and persistence.
“Why are you looking at me?” He baulked. “You know just because I’m a football player doesn’t mean I know every celebrity out there, Katherine.”
“You really need to get over this weird scavenger hunt, Kat,” Caroline implored. “I mean who really cares about celebrities; you know present company excluded and all that.”
“I care,” she pouted. “What if it’s Chris Hemsworth or Brad Pitt?”
“Well, last time I checked Kitty Kat, Chris Hemsworth is happily married,” Bonnie observed. “And Brad Pitt is just all sorts of complicated right now and I never took you for the child friendly type and he’s got like a lot.”
“Plus, aren’t we good enough company for you?” Lexi asked, feigning annoyance.
They’d all laughed off her curiosity as dinner arrived. The girls were staying together overnight even though they had their own rooms. So, Caroline had ventured back to her suite to grab her pyjamas and some overnight supplies.
Given their room was only directly down the hall, Caroline decided to change there, putting on her pyjamas which consisted of a blue, fitted singlet and tiny, white shorts and tying back her blonde waves into a high ponytail. Grabbing her toiletries bag, she opened her room door not expecting the sight that met her in the corridor.
He was stark naked, well except for a cowboy hat placed strategically over his nether regions. Caroline wasn’t sure where to look. His toned physique was nothing short of impressive and those dark, blonde curls, crimson lips and stubble weren’t so bad either.
Would you write Everlark childhood best friend AU? Please!!!
Of course :)
Sorry it took so long :) Hope you’ll like it :)
All mistakes are mine, Unbeta-ed.
“Katniss! Come down! You know I can’t climb!”
The little girl with two braids shook her head. She was on the top of the monkey bars, knowing perfectly well the blonde boy wouldn’t climb up to meet her. He was too clumsy and afraid of heights.
More, she didn’t want to talk to him anymore. He had betrayed her.
“Katniss! Come down! I have cheese buns!”
He was playing dirty, she knew it, he knew it, and she knew he knew she knew it.
She was decided to not cave in this time, though.
“Kat…” she heard his voice, barely above a whisper, but didn’t indulge him a single look.
What came next was unexpected. A loud noise, followed by a shout of pain.
Katniss looked down, before rushing to the ground, where Peeta was laying, holding his right knee in his hand. She could see his eyes sparkling, could see the tears forming.
“Oh my god, Peeta, what happened? How are you?”
“I tried to climb”
“But you can’t climb!”
“I know, but you wouldn’t talk to me!” Peeta answered, harshly. He winced as he tried to stretch is leg, once, twice, before looking back at Katniss.
“Are you going up again now?” He asked, as she averted his gaze, looking instead at the monkey bars behind her.
“Kat, if you go up gain, I’ll follow you.”
“No Peeta-ing me. tell me what’s wrong.”
Katniss was looking at the sand beneath her when she felt his hand on her arm.
She couldn’t run away now even if she wanted to.
Not that she wanted to.
She took a deep breath.
“you’re going to marry Delly and leave me forever..”
If the moment hadn’t been so intense, Katniss would have been able to realize she had shut Peeta Mellark down completely.
Which never happened.
It took him several minuets to answer.
“What gives you that idea?”
Katniss started playing with the sand, grabbing handful of it before letting it pass through her fingers.
“She told Clove, who told Glimmer, who told Madge, who told me. You’ll want to play with her , now.”
Peeta shrugged before answering. “No. i’m not going to marry Delly. And certainly not leave you forever”. He took a deep breath, as Katniss shyly looked up, meeting his eyes. “You’re my best friend Kat. Bestest of the best.”
“Bestest of the best?” she smiled, remembering the time when they made their pinky swear - when they were barely 5 years old… five years ago.
She nodded before finally, finally caving in, launching herself in the comfort of his arms.
Request: I noticed that you don’t have any Kathryn x reader things and I was thinking about like her having a girls night sleepover thing with Amy where they gossip and do face masks and such but then male readers like “yo can I join?” Not in a weird way but like boys can enjoy that stuff too and you also haven’t written much with male readers so yeah sorry it’s not specific or just Kathryn x reader I just thought it’d be cute
Summary: Male!Reader wants to hang with Kathryn and Amy while they’re having a girls night.
A/N: Hey guys, I’m so sorry for my little hiatus I went on these past 2 weeks :( As you all probably know by now, my cousin got married! Then when I got back home I had finals! It was awful and I’m v sorry but I’m here now ready to not be a shitty person. Also I’m actually typing this all up on my phone in the tumblr app (yay for manually inputting the code 🙃) so pls bear with me if the formatting is a little off from how it usually is. Anyway, hope you guys enjoy this v short fic!
Wordcount: 333, this is probably my shortest fic ever IM SORRY
Teddy: You can’t see me. The flowers are my cover Victoire: You’re lucky you’re cute and I love you because now you look like an idiot Teddy: *goofy smile* You are marrying this idiot Victoire: *brillant smile* I’m starting to regret it Katerina: *rolling her eyes* Gosh you’re gonna give me a tooth ache
Victoire and Teddy looking for flowers for their upcoming wedding with Katerina as a consultant aka valorified third wheel
First impression: a dead baby, then a dead horse, and her reaction is to marry her partner and adopt four fucking orphans. your faves would never.
Impression now: still one of the most thoughtful, caring, tragic characters ever. the only good thing about being cancelled is it allowed me to pretend the entire world stopped being shit and she got to be genuinely happy for the rest of her life.
Favorite moment: my favorite ep of hers might be when the town found out she was native.
Idea for a story: a canon divergent au where she & jeremiah took the kids and split from the wagon train right after they became a new family.
Unpopular opinion: i’m drawing a blank
Favorite relationship: i love her with rebecca and isabelle equally
Favorite headcanon: she has always preferred dressing like a man. fuck dresses.
Just a little bit curious and let me ask^_^...Roboute Guilliman, Sanguinius, Leman Russ
*Starts intolerable Ugly Meltdown Crying*
WHY YOU ASK ME THIS?
Sanguinius. Just look at this super precious cinnamon roll of a Primarch and tell me you do NOT want to marry him. C’mon I DARE you. You look into those sweet angel eyes and shy, sexy smile and tell him to his face you don’t want to marry him. And dammit he’ll probably tell you its okay and then you feel guilty as if you ran over his kitty kat and stole cake from a starving orphan. Art by @toranekostudios
THIS IS WHERE IT GETS TRICKY…..
Russ: I knew it. The braids and fangs are too hard to resist. I don’t mind you don’t marry me because of your rationale earlier.
Me: Wait up now…you too Guilliman.
Rob: I can’t say I’m surprised but….
Leman: Well you can’t have both of us here, who are you going to kill?
Me: Patience is a virtue! So shaddup and let me think here.
Russ: Whyyyyy? I thought you want to fuck me.
Me: I absolutely do. But *cries while pulling out a bolter* Prospero man…how could you????
Rob: I would like to raise my objection to this killing act.
Also Roboute Guilliman.
Me: Don’t worry pumpkin, you’re next.
Rob: Whaaaat? What did I do?
Me: Plot device. Sorry. Blame it on Matt Ward.
Me: I have a better idea.
Russ: Make it quick.
Roboute: Don’t shoot her yet, Leman, let’s hear this.
Roboute: Just shoot her. It’s for the good of humanity.
Russ: For once I could not agree more with you brother.
A/N: Hey guys! I am super, super, SUPER sorry for such a late update. My muse for this chapter didn’t want to come out until about two hours ago. I am so sorry that you guys had to wait. I hate making you wait but I want to thank everyone who gave me such kind words of encouragement. You all are seriously amazing. That being said, this chapter is dedicated to each and every one of you <3
sat there frozen in front of him. Her heart was racing wildly and she
felt ice shoot through her veins. Married for real? Was Negan insane?
Did he really think she’d want to get married for real? Did he really
think even if they did, everything would just magically go back to
the way it was when they first started dating?
the fuck do you think about that, Doll?” He grinned at her, waiting
for her response.
mind was so jumbled together that she didn’t even think about the
words she was about to say.
smirk faltered slightly and the grip on her chin tightened.
swallowed the lump that had formed in her throat as she moved her
eyes to lock on Negan’s. She noted how dark and hard they were and it
made her heart race. She decided on telling him the truth. She was
tired of lying.
don’t want to get married.”
sucked his teeth.
why the fuck not?”
took a shaky breath in before slowly letting it out.
I don’t think it’ll fix anything.”
was silent for a few minutes before Negan surprisingly laughed.
I fucking get it, Doll.” Katherine slightly furrowed her eyebrows.
“Yea, yea I fucking get it. You want me to agree to fucking get rid
of the other women.” He laughed as Katherine’s eyes widened
slightly. “Jesus you drive a hard fucking bargain, Doll. But, I
guess I can fucking do that. God knows I don’t fucking need them
anymore since I’ve got my fucking Kitty Kat back.”
shook her head.
not what I meant.”
raised an eyebrow.
Then what the fuck did you mean?”
shook her head, looking down at her lap.
lifted her face back up.
Tell me. Now.”
let out another shaky breath.
killed my friends. Y-you tortured Daryl and my family. You had Olivia
killed and you killed Spencer. You even made me hurt Eugene.”
I had a reason for doing each and every one of those fucking things.
This is a different fucking world now, Katherine. I do what I fucking
have to to make sure everyone knows who is fucking in charge now. If
people would just fucking listen, maybe your friends would still be
fucking alive. Well…minus Spencer of course.” He smirked
maliciously at her.
shook her head as tears stung her eyes.
laughed and let go of her chin to pick up his drink.
you’re not the first fucking person to call me that and you certainly
won’t be the fucking last.” He took a sip of his scotch before
holding the glass in his lap.
just don’t think I want to actually get married.” She said again.
wasn’t fucking giving you an option, Katherine.”
felt her heart drop.
didn’t you fucking hear me? I said ‘you and I are gonna get fucking
married for real.’ There was no fucking question there. Fuck, maybe I
should have Carson check your fucking hearing.”
that’s not fair!”
not fucking fair. Consider it another fucking part of your
punishment.” He smirked, taking another sip of his drink.
shook her head.
can’t do that.”
Kitty Kat, I can do whatever the fuck I want. For example, if I
fucking wanted to, I could fucking to Alexandria right now, find
Daryl and fucking kill him for killing Fat Joseph and then I could
fucking kill anyone who got in my way.”
wasn’t stupid. He wasn’t just saying it as an example. He was saying
it as a threat.
happened to not making women do something they don’t want to?”
still stand by that. But like I fucking said, this is part of your
punishment. You get to be fucking stuck with me for the rest of our

calm her racing heart.

swallowed and shook her head.
won’t do it,” she whispered
lucky for me, I can be very fucking persuasive.”
wanted to cry but didn’t want to give him the satisfaction of seeing
I even get a say in this?”
course you fucking do!” He lent forward and cupped her cheeks in
his large hands. “You get to fucking pick if your family is there
or not. I know how girls always dream of their daddy walking them
down the fucking aisle. And let me fucking tell you, Doll, I think it
would be funny as shit to watch your father try and fucking control
himself when he hands you over to me.”
shook her head.
know.” He took another sip of his drink. “Why don’t you fucking
lay down. You look like you’re about to pass the fuck out.”
Katherine didn’t have to be told twice and slowly stood up before
making her way over to the door.
and Kitty Kat, after the fucking wedding you’re moving in here with
me so make sure your shit is packed.”
didn’t answer him as he laughed. She quickly exited the room and all
but ran to the wives quarters. When she opened the doors, she felt
five pairs of eyes all settle on her. She hadn’t seen any of the
girls since the night she had dinner with Negan.
and Amber both looked at her with concern but Katherine didn’t
acknowledge them. She kept her eyes on the ground and shut the doors
before passing all of them and heading to her room.
immediately collapsed onto her bed, curling up into a little ball and
letting the tears fall freely. She couldn’t help but blame herself
for the situation she was now in. Would this even be happening if she
hadn’t said anything about having a baby while down in the basement.
body shook hard with sobs. A knock sounded on her bedroom door.
Katherine looked up when it opened and Sherry and Amber poked their
they saw how upset she was, they both stepped in, shutting the door
“Where have you been?” Sherry asked as
Katherine sat up so the two could sit next to her.
guys don’t know?” Sherry and Amber shook their heads. Katherine
took a deep breath, trying to calm herself down.
we went to Alexandria a couple days ago, shit hit the fan. N-Negan
found out t-that I had been lying about my ex Spencer.”
one that was alive?” Katherine nodded at Amber as more tears fell.
N-Negan ended up cutting his stomach open and killed him.” She let
out a sob. Amber wrapped her arms around the girl as Sherry rubbed
her back. Sure they didn’t know each other but they had all become
somewhat close through their hatred of Negan.
happened?” Sherry asked. Katherine sighed.
was so mad. When we g-got back, he locked me in a cell downstairs. I
was down there three days before he came to get me.”
and Sherry’s eyes widened. They knew Negan had a temper but he never
took his anger out on his wives. He usually took it out on people
close to them.
then he made me whip one of my friends who he also took from
Alexandria. And now…” Katherine’s throat tightened. “Now he’s
making me marry him for real.”
and Amber’s eyes widened even more.
sniffled and nodded, pushing a lock of hair behind her ear.
about us?” Amber asked.
said he’d still give you guys the same perks but he wouldn’t sleep
with you. I don’t want to be married to him but he won’t take no as
like Negan.” Sherry said, rubbing the young girl’s back
that mean we can go back to our husbands?” Amber asked, her voice
sounding hopeful. Katherine shrugged.
don’t know. You’d have to ask him. I’m sure he’ll talk to you guys
about it.” She wiped the tears from her eyes. “What am I going to
girls sighed and wrapped their arms around her in a hug.
let him break you. You have to be strong.”
Katherine could do was nod but deep down, she knew it was easier said
couple days had passed and Katherine was constantly on edge. She
hadn’t seen Negan since the day he had basically told her they were
getting married whether she liked it or not.
knew Negan had talked to the other girls about what was going on.
Sherry had filled her in after Negan apparently all called them to
his office while she was sound asleep in her room. Katherine noticed
how most of the girls seemed relieved. Only one seemed upset and she
made sure to send daggers Katherine’s way any chance she got.
just ignored her. She had bigger things to worry about.
to try and get her mind off of things, she decided to head down to
the daycare they had in The Sanctuary. Dressing in a pair of jeans
and a plain black tank top, she made her way out of of the room.
was surprised to see she didn’t get lost on her way down. When she
got down there, she gently knocked on the door before walking in.
smiled seeing a a small group of toddlers sitting at a table drawing
while two women rocked babies to sleep. They looked up and smiled at
Sorry is this a bad time?”
no, the babies just fell asleep. Come in.”
gave a small smile and stepped inside, quietly shutting the door
you’re one of Negan’s wives.”
forced a small smile on her face and nodded.
Mandy and this is Grace.”
shook their hands.
nice to meet you. I was just wondering if I could come down and spend
some time with the kids. I used to be a daycare teacher and it’s nice
to have something fo familiar to how things used to be.”
nodded as they watched the toddlers.
course. Everyone is always welcomed here.”
smiled and nodded before walking over to fill out some paperwork and
Grace walked over to check on the babies. Katherine let out a soft
sigh and walked over to the table of toddlers.
guys. What’s up?”
drawing!” Katherine laughed at a little girl as she sat down in a
small chair at the table with them.
see that! What are you guys drawing?”
spent almost two hours downstairs with the kids. It was just what she
needed to cheer her up.
giggled as a little boy, Connor, showed her his dance moves.
Connor those are some moves!”
better save those for the fucking reception.” Katherine jumped and
turned around to see Negan behind her. He grinned at her. “Ain’t
this a blast from the fucking past, Doll.”
Mr. Negan.” Negan smirked and waved at the kids.
kids. You being good?” They all nodded their heads, making him
her bosses voice, Mandy came out from the back room where she was
hello Negan.” Negan smiled.
How are things fucking running down here?”
good. We’re starting to run low on some diapers though.” Negan
add it to the fucking list. You don’t mind if I fucking steal
Katherine here do you?”
no, not at all. Katherine, feel free to come by anytime.”
gave a small smile and slowly stood up.
was nice meeting you guys.”
Negan wrapped an arm around her waist and pulled her out of the room.
have fucking fun down there?”
Maybe I’ll let you go down there more fucking often. At least you
fucking smile down there.”
laughed and pulled her in closer as they climbed the stairs.
thought they were going to his bedroom but was surprised when he
pulled her down a hallway she had never been before.
are we going?”
smirked down at her.
got a surprise for you.”
felt her heart stop. A surprise? She wasn’t sure if she should be
scared or terrified.
laughed at the look on her face.
the fuck down, Doll. You’ll fucking love this.”
led her down the hallway and stopped in front of a wooden door.
swallowed hard as he opened the door and pushed her inside. She
stopped short, her eyes widening when she saw who was sitting there.
Kat, you fucking know our favorite creepy ass priest. Father…Fuck I
forgot your name.”
Katherine whispered, in shock. How had Negan’s men actually gotten
him? Gabriel locked eyes with her, silently trying to ask her what
was going on.
that’s fucking it. Well anyways, Father, I need a fucking favor from
you.” He walked over and placed his hands on Katherine’s
shoulder’s, squeezing tightly.
fucking need you to marry us.” He looked down at Katherine and
Because I do NOT have the time to write a Kat surrogate story multi chapter fic right now, this little scene wouldn’t leave me.
Kat peered at the plate sitting on the kitchen table with distaste. “What is that supposed to be?” she asked.
“Vegetables,” Robert said, as if it was obvious. “Kale, spinach and…”
“No, absolutely not,” she said. “I’m starving, I’m not going to eat rabbit food! I thought you invited me to dinner?” she asked Aaron. He looked at Robert with a married I told you so kind of glance. “I’m not eating that.”
“Kat, it’s good for you,” Robert said indignantly.
“Oh, like hell it is,” she snapped. “You mean it’s good for the baby. I tell you what, I’ll eat that mess when he does,” she added, pointing her finger at Aaron.
“Eh?” he said, looking oblivious, fork halfway to his mouth as he was about to tuck into his steak and chips with gusto. “Wait, why?!”
“This isn’t my baby, I shouldn’t be the only one suffering.” Kat sat down with dignity, glaring at Aaron as if daring him to say anything to contradict her.
“I’ve been working all day,” Aaron said. “Stripping three cars, I need more than rabbit food to keep me going.”
“Exactly,” Kat said with a sweet smile. “I’ll have steak please.” Robert looked at the pair of them, realised he was being ganged up against and sighed.
Then he looked to Aaron. “There’s no chance you’re going to…?” Robert started, looking at the unappetising plate of veg.
“Not a chance in hell,” Aaron said bluntly. “Give her steak.”
“Fine,” Robert said, now annoyed. She smiled at Aaron, eyes glinting and glad he’d backed her up. He grinned back.
Kat, my family kind of got me down today. Most of my cousins are getting married or are in serious relationships (even the super young ones) and I've never had a boyfriend or anything and I'm 21 and they were telling me that I'm getting old and need to find someone sooner rather than later. Idk it made me sad because I want to focus on school first and now I'm paranoid that I'm never gonna meet someone or they won't like me because I'm older and have no experience. It's stupid but I'm still sad
I’m (maybe???) dating someone for the first time in my entire life and I’m 26 years old. It won’t be too late. People are surprisingly chill about these things, and if they aren’t then they aren’t worth it. But I get the feeling, and it’s hard to look past it and be like “yeah okay there’s someone out there for me if I want them” because of societal constructs and pressure from literally everywhere. But don’t give in! Live your life at your speed the way you want and don’t let societal pressures get you down! (Even though it’s way harder than it sounds.)
‘Congratulations man! You did not even tell me that you are going to get married,’ Steve said as he hugged James with his right arm.
‘Yeah, I know. Sorry about that, I should have told you.’
‘What is wrong Bucky? You have a face that seems you have just seen a ghost. Do not tell me you do not want to get marry now?’
'I do not know what I want, Steve. These weeks have been weird for me,’ James wanted to keep talking but he did not know how to say the words; it was hard to say the words he was about to spill out even when he was talking to his best friend. 'I- I don’t think Amanda is the right person pal.’
'What?! After these years… well, this is not an easy situation, for sure. But I am happy for you if you realize she is not the one.’ Steve did not say anything for a few seconds and then he continued, 'if it is not Amanda, who is the one then?’
James turned around and looked at the inside of the party room. Steve followed Bucky’s glance and he saw the photographer, you.
“…I will call you Ruby, and you will be Bob, her knight in neon green armor,” Lila mutters contentedly as she picks up two of her dolls. “Ruby, you want to kiss Bob so you can get fat and pop out babies, but Bob, you are in love with Princess Periwinkle. She thinks you’re kinda cute too, but last week her stepmother, the evil queen Kit Kat, tricked her into marrying the Mushroom Man! Okay, now Bob, let’s go over here to visit Ru-”
“Lila Grace!” Theodore snaps without taking his eyes off the computer screen. “If you’re going to play up here, you must keep it down. I cannot possibly get my work done with all that racket!”
The child visibly deflates at his scolding. “Please don’t make me go to my room,” she whispers. “I promise I’ll be quiet.”
Theo grunts in acknowledgement and continues pounding away at his keyboard, seemingly oblivious to his daughter’s sudden despondency, but Lila Grace doesn’t feel much like playing anymore. Setting down her toys, she takes a deep breath and tries to hold in the knot of sadness building in her chest, but she can feel the warm tears spill down her cheeks anyway. She hates disappointing her dad.
I had still not seen Kit, after I even started working at the diner. “Hey, Bea. Does that greaser boy still work there?” She looked up at the garage. She nodded and took a drag off her cigarette. “His dad died of a heart attack last year, it was so sad. He was such a good man. So, he took over the business. He comes in every so often.” She said sslightly smiling at me then continuing her work. His dad… was dead? I felt sick to my stomach, and tried to suck it up to keep working. I went out back to take a break, trying to collect my feelings. Not even 5 minutes later, Jerry the chef burst through the door. “What are you doing? You have like a group of 6 people in your bay, get back in there now,” I ran back in hurrying to take the orders before hurrying to take a guy who was sitting alone’s order. “Hey!” What can I get ya?“ I asked kind of breathy. “Catch your breath there?” He asked with a laugh he looked up at me, and I looked down at him. And we both went silent. The smile on his face dropping, I shook my head and put my hand over my mouth, taking a deep breath, swallowing. “What can I get you?” I said keeping my eyes on the notepad. He gently pulled it down “Kat?” He asked; I looked at him “What can I get you?” I said having to clear my throat after. He pressed his brows together and gave me a confused look. “Kat, don’t you know who I am?” He asked me with a nervous chuckle “What can I get for you?” I asked, this time my voice cracking. He just stared at me, his eyes watering and his bottom lip quivering. He looked like… a man. He was more masculine than before. His body more toned, his face was thinner, but he still had a baby face. “W-what,” I had to pause a minute to regain my composure. “Can I get for you?” I said in almost a whisper. Trying my hardest to fight back the tears that were filling in my eyes. He stood up in front of me, breathing heavily, I backed up, thinking he would walk out. Just leave and not say anything. He then grabbed me, and hugged me tightly. “I thought I’d never see you again,” He said holding me there for so long, I hugged him back, feeling the familiar warmth he had, wrap itself around me.
After I had gotten off work, Kit waited for ne outside. I came out and gave him an angry look. “Why didn’t you ever write me? Or- or call me, or tell me why you didn’t want to write or call me. I waited for you, I waited for all 4 of those years. Hoping, hoping so much for you to not forget me,” I said with fury in my voice. He rolled his tongue in his cheek. “I’m sorry… I tried. I really did.” He opened his jacket, to reveal a bundle of letters. “I wrote you every day for months, and then suddenly all of them were sent back to me. The mail man saying that the address wasn’t… a good address, I tried to call the number, it didn’t work… I… I tried. This is proof I tried. Your dad refused to give me a real means of contacting you. I wouldn’t just not write you.,” He said holding the out to me. I stared at them in disbelief. “So, did you wait for me?” I asked him, hoping to god he would embrace me, then kiss me. Then we can live like we wanted to. “I met a girl, Kat… I married her.” And just like that. My heart shattered. It felt like he took out a gun and shot me in the stomach. I clentched my stomach, trying to hide how much it hurt me to hear that. “What did you expect me to do?” “Wait, because you told me you would. It’s not like I willingly went… I loved you, I wanted to be with you forever, I wanted you to wait for me.” I said holding back my emotions as well as I could. “Well, I just.. Don’t know what to say now.” He said fighting back tears too. He sighed “I never… Wanted this to happen, I met her at the time I was really bent out of shape with my dad dying, and you not being around, and she helped get me through it.” I shrugged “I am going to go home now, I am sorry about your dad,” I said as I walked past him. “Kat, please wait!” He said trying to keep up with me “Don’t turn your back on me, please.” “You already turned yours to me,” I said through tears. “You were gone 4 years, you didn’t talk to me for 4 years!” He yelled “I was forced to!” I yelled back at him. Turning around to face him. He grabbed my shoulders “I will always love you, Kit Walker,” I said kissing his cheek. He closed his eyes and sighed. I didn’t say anything as we looked at each other for a long time, before I walked away. This time, Kit didn’t follow. I got inside of my room and jumped on my bed. Screaming into my pillow, I wanted to die, I could not handle this pain. This pain! It was awful! I sobbed uncontrollably, trying to get it out of me. He married someone else. He fucking married someone else. My dad then burst into my room. “Stop being so loud!” He yelled at me. I turned away from him as he lingered in the door way. “Are you crying? Did you hear that Walker boy married a negro girl? I told you boys are all the same,” He said down by me. “ I tried to warn you; and you let him in between your legs.” He hissed. His breath smelled strongly of booze. “Get out of here, you’re drunk,” I said in an annoyed tone. “Give daddy a kiss first, I missed you. You’ve grown into such a beautiful woman,” He said touching my bare inner thigh “Get the hell away from me!” I said pushing his hand away from me. He got angry, over powering me. He laid on top of me, using his weight to me there. He separated my legs with his, and I screamed out as loud as I could for someone to hear. He got pissed and hit me with all his force in my jaw. “Shut the fuck up, you little whore. I know this is what you want, daddy loves his girl,” He said forcing a kiss on my mouth. I protested against it, immediately infuritated. I could hear the little girl in my head, crying, trying to fight off my dad. Something me snapped in that moment as I heard his buckle on his belt come undone. I kneed him between his legs as hard as I could. He let out a yell, and fell onto the floor. “You ruined my life!” I screamed kicking him in the ribs, “YOU TOOK ME AWAY FROM KIT! NOW HE’S MARRIED!” I screamed, kicking him again. “You raped me when I was too small to even know what was happening. There is no one I hate more than I hate you! You piece of fucking shit!” I yelled. I grabbed my trophy, made of pure metal.
, weighing almost 20 pounds I was in a trance almost, as I sat on top of him. “Look at my face, Dad. I want you to look at me. ” I said, holding it over my head. He looked at me, putting his hands in his face “Put that down, put it down!” That’s when I began to smash his head with it, screaming as I did it, he screamed in agony, trying to beg me to stop. Just going and going, until he was unrecognizable as a human being. His head completely smashed in. Brain matter, skull pieces, and blood all over me, and the whole room. I exhaled deeply, sitting on top my dead dad, at peace that he was finally dead. Relieved. I heard my mom scream then, not releasing she had walked in. I slowly looked at her, my face covered in blood. I then darted after her, grabbing her by the hair and pulling her in the room. “Look, look at him. You let this piece of FILTH rape me, and Deavon. You let him,” “I didn’t know I swear!” She sobbed “Fucking lying, god damn, bitch! I saw you, I saw you watching. You knew! You knew what he was doing, fucking your daughter. Your 5 year old daughter? Clear until she was 17? He tried to rape me again, I know you knew, you were just too drunk to care. You are just as much to blame as he is.” I said in her ear. My mom then head butted me, breaking my nose with a loud crunch, blood immediately squirting from my nostrils. She head butted me a second time, this time causing me to bite through my bottom lip. I let go in reflex, and she ran up the stairs. I went after her, not feeling the pain. She screamed for Deavon to help her as he approached the stairs. Deavon looked at her for a moment, then just walked away. My mom pleaded for him to come back. She fought like hell, until I was able to get my hands on the trophy, and I slammed it into the back of her head. She screamed and some how managed to break free again, running up the stairs. Screaming for my brother to call 911. I ran after her, grabbing the biggest double edged knife I could find in the kitchen, then began to search for her. “Mom?” I asked peaking around a corner, the corners of my mouth curling into an insideous smile. I opened the living room closet to find her there, she screamed as I stabbed her in the chest. She fell to the ground, and I sat on her back. Stabbing her over, and over, and over, and over… At least 100 times. Until all that came out of her was a gurgling sound, as she grabbed at her throat, her body convulsing, as she struggled to breath through the blood filling her mouth. I kissed my fingers, and put them on her lips before throwing the knife down, and looking down at her. She looked into my eyes, as she drowned in her own fluids, the intense fear and confusion in her eyes burned into me. I picked up the phone calling 911, while she was still alive and staring at me. “Hello, I just murdered my parents,” I spoke softly. My mom shaking her head, tears coming out of her eyes, her reaching out to me, before taking her last few breaths. Finally, I was at peace. No matter what happened to me. I knew they were fucking gone. “Kat, what will happen to me?” I heard from my brother ask. I hugged him “You’ll be okay, you’ll live with grandma I bet.” I could hear the sirens in the background. I hugged him, he was pretty much taller than me. “They can’t hurt you anymore,” I said with a smile. The police bursted down the door, and it felt like slow motion, as they held guns at me, telling me to put my hands at the back of my head, and walk backwards to them. “You’ll be fine, Deavon. You’ll be better now, I love you,” “I love you, Kat.” He said. I could see the relief in his eyes, that our horrible rapist parents, were executed for their crimes by me. But now, I may meet the same fate.
The court trial was fast. The daughter who murdered her beloved catholic family, I was painted as a monster before the entire town. I didn’t care, as long I knew and my brother knew, who spoke in my defense know that I smudged out 2 evil, heartless, pieces of shit. I was deemed to have had temporary insanity due to “hysteria.” And was sent to live out my days, at Briarcliff Manor.
After learning she is about to be deported to her native Canada after violating the terms of her work visa, Darcy Lewis, polarizing executive editor in chief of Foster’s Publishing House, persuades her long-suffering assistant Steve Rogers to marry her in a last ditch effort to remain in the United States. Steve agrees to the charade, but imposes a few conditions of his own- including whisking her to his hometown in Alaska to meet his eccentric family- in order to get closer to his own dream of becoming an editor. With an impromptu wedding in the works and a suspicious immigration official always lurking nearby, Darcy and Steve reluctantly vow to stick to the plan despite the precarious consequences.
“Three days ago, I loathed you. I used to dream about you getting hit by a cab. Then we had our little adventure up in Alaska and things started to change. Things changed when we kissed. And when you told me about your tattoo. Even when you checked me out when we were naked. But I didn’t realize any of this, until I was standing alone… in a barn… wifeless. Now, you could imagine my disappointment when it suddenly dawned on me that the woman I love is about to be kicked out of the country. So Darcy, marry me, because I’d like to date you.”

You had to leave yesterday, and as I sat in the tube riding back to my flat, I might have cried. I’m sorry I was so nervous when you got here, I just didn’t know what to do. We had been talking so much over fuzzy Skype calls it was amazing to see you in person. On The Eye I was dying inside because I liked you and really hoped you liked me too and when you kissed me my heart felt like it flipped over and it had never done that before. I miss you already and its only been 12 hours. Yes I have been counting, and I regret nothing. Please come back soon so we can sit on my couch with ice-cream and watch spirited away or totaro over and over again. Or not watch the movies, if you get what im saying XD.
I miss you bear

I have my own flat here in Manchester, as you know, and even if you just wanted to stay for a week to see what its like I’m ok with that! I was looking through our Skype call logs earlier today and noticed that we spent 11 hours and 39 minutes talking last monday. Thats most of the day! Time really flies when I’m talking to you I hope you know that, and I really hope you say yes to moving in with me so I can hear your voice all day long. I hope you can come down soon bear.
I miss you so much.

April 22, 2010
YOU SAID YES TO MOVING IN WITH ME!!!! This is probably the greatest day of my whole life. I spent all week getting the house ready for you! I even cleaned the bathroom, and I haven’t done that since, well, I moved in. I cant wait till were staying up till 3, laying on my couch, maybe cuddling, watching attack on titan whenever we want. 2 More days bear, 2 more days.
December 9th, 2011
I havent written to you in a while have I? I have something to confess, I am falling deeply in love with you, and i never told you till just now. The fans are starting to suspect, well, they’ve suspected this whole time, and I feel like I’ve been lying to them this whole time by not telling them. I know you want to keep it a secret, but its hard not to grab your hand in public, or kiss you while we wait on the platform for the train back to my parents house for the holidays. I mean, I dont think telling our parents is enough sometimes. I want to tell the world how much I love you, but I’m to scared to tell you. I feel like I’m rambling on about nothing, but I also feel like this is very important. I don’t know anymore.
Well, I love you bear.
September 22, 2012
You stormed out today. I didn’t mean to upload the valentines video from so long ago, I didn’t even hover over it for christ sake. I went to upload a new video that I spent all day editing and youtube glitched and uploaded that one to the public. I promise I didn’t mean to. Please don’t leave me Bear. You are my world and I couldn’t deal with losing you, because of some stupid mistake that technology made. I love you more than anything in this world and I hope you know that.
I cant lose you Bear
December 25, 2013
I’m writing this to you after you have gone to bed. I finally said those 3 words I’ve been scared to say for so long. Daniel James Howell, I love you more than anything on this earth. And you know what made me the happiest when I said those 3 little words with such an important meaning? You grabbed my face and kissed me and whispered onto my lips, “I’ve been waiting to hear those words since the say I got off the train platform”
I don’t know why I was so afraid to say it, I guess i thought you would leave. Well if id known id get this reaction i would of said it earlier. You are my life.
Sleep well bear
July 19, 2014
While I was at Tesco a girl came up
to me and pointed out I was wearing your jacket. She then continued to start shaking and made a noise like a mouse or something. I think she said “phan is real” as she walked off, but I’m not 100% sure. More and more people are suspecting us Bear, and its not gonna be long before we are caught doing that will out us to the world.
Well, what ever, i love you bear.
March 23, 2015
I want to marry you. I mean hell (sorry) we’ve been together for 6 years, and I’m 28 years old. I think I’m ready, and I hope you are too. I’ve been thinking about it for a while now and I want you to know that I love you more than I love myself. Daniel James Howell, you are my everything, and my only.
Please say yes Bear
June 26th, 2016
Daniel James Howell (and in a few months, Howell-Lester)
YOU SAID YES. I know I decided I wanted to marry you so long ago, but I only got the guts to ask you today. Sitting out on the same fountain as we did that Halloween in 2009, I was physically shaking, and I could tell that you noticed. And when Louise sent Darcy out you looked so surprised and confused, I almost laughed, but the nerves prevented me from do just that. Oh and little Darcy, she did so good! She ran up to you and yelled “Uncle Dan!” and gave you a big hug, then handed you the little box, and ran right back to Louise and Matt, just like she was supposed to. You looked at me with tears in your eyes, and you knew exactly what was coming. I stumbled as I got on one knee, and you chuckled, while I blushed uncontrollably. You hadn’t even opened the box, and you said yes. You didn’t even let me stutter through the 4 short, but life changing words, you impatient bastard. This is the happiest I’ve been in a while.
We are forever, Bear
December 7, 2023
Katherine Elizabeth Howell-Lester. Our own baby girl. Our child to take care of and protect from the boys that will break her fragile little heart when she’s older, our own child to cradle when she has a bad dream at 4 am, our own child to walk down the isle when she meets her perfect match. Our own child to teach not to be a huge ass to people of other race, religion, or beliefs. You’re gonna have to cut down on the cursing though, I mean she’s 3, and you know how kids that age repeat everything. She’s so perfect Dan, just like you.
We have a little Bear cub now I guess.
Phil thought he had been carful when hiding the letters he never sent, but obviously not careful enough, because when Dan was packing up the flat when they moved out of the city, he found the little box that was hidden under the mattress. When Phil went to open the box again, to relive some memories, he found a little note on top of the rest, the scrawl not matching his own.
February 26th, 2025
All of these years I have loved you more than anything, excluding Kat. When we weren’t together, back in 2009, I hated not seeing you. All these years later, finding that you’ve had these letters you never gave me fills me with so much love and hope. Hope for us, for Kat, for everything we’ve been through together. If I had known you had loved me for so long, I would of married you sooner. It kinda upsets me that we didn’t come out to YouTube sooner, I mean, they were so supportive of us! And now that our baby is in school, and now that we have so many friends, I’m genuinely the happiest I’ve ever been. Thank you for everything, and I love you so much. Nothing in the world compares to the love I have for you and out “bear cub”.
I wish you had shown these to me sooner, Lion.
Summary:after 8 years of marriage, Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are in the middle of a divorce being closely watched by the media. Between protecting their kids from the attention and moving on with the divorce, life (and truths) can be tougher than expected for these two superstars.
a/n: I’m so sorry this is late af, but yesterday I had to go to a funeral in another town (it was very sad and I cried) and I got home at 2 a.m. asleep on my feet. Here it is, though. Hope you like it :) and yes,
the ob-gyn’s name is Addison because I miss her so much on Grey’s, so here’s my
sincere tribute. And I know I said the kids were home schooled, but to follow
my plot they have to go to school.
imagine if one christmas stiles decided to make mix cds for everyone and put messages inside of them (on scott's he put all these cheesy best friend songs, allison's all of these songs about being a badass lady, lydia's songs about moving on) (he didn't make one for derek because he doesn't think the guy even has a cd player) and then he sees isaac and he has his cd in his back pocket, he's kind of nervous about giving it to him but eventually he just runs up to him, shoves it at him and then
runs away, and isaac opens it and reads the message (it says: i’m going to not try and make this too long and emotional, but pretty much i really like you and these songs pretty much sum up how i feel about you. warning: there’s one direction on there) and isaac listens to it and there’s songs on there like falling for you by the 1975 and i wanna be yours by the arctic monkeys (there’s a total of three 1D songs on there, and isaac loves stiles for it) and so isaac goes to stiles house and is like you better not be fucking with me you little shit bc i’m kind of in love with you and if i wasn’t already i definitely am now and then they make out and are really happy together yay (that cd is playing when they first have sex) (and at their wedding) (falling for you plays during their first dance together and everyone cries) (especially scott) (and so do stiles and isaac but they’ll deny it if anyone asks)
Ok so Story Time~ I am at a restaurant right now, my family and I had to share a table with a married couple of old people.
While eating and talking with mom and my cousin, the old man looked at me and said “Hey, you look like a charm lil kid, have you ever went to a waterpark?” I answered ‘em that yeah but with my school, he smiled at me and gave me a fucking Gift Card and said “well, you can go now for free” AND I SMILED LIKE AN IDIOT LIKE OMFG I ALMOST HUG HIM THAT IS SUCH A SWEET DETAIL I AM DYING.
