  • Literally everybody loves him, there isn’t a single person in town that doesn’t go heart eyes over him
  • He takes such good care of the town
  • He makes sure everyone is okay 24/7
  • Like no one is hungry, no one is unemployed if they want to work, they all have supplies for days
  • Once a month, he sends out the castle’s chefs to cook for the entire town and it’s one of his favorite days tbh
  • Everyone’s so :D and everyone’s laughing and chatting and they make new friends and reunite with old friends
  • He feels so happy and just walks around the “party” as the people call it
  • He makes sure everyone’s gotten enough food to eat and that everyone’s having fun
  • The kids get to do arts and crafts while their parents talk and you can always count on Tae being right by their side
  • That’s how he meets you
  • You were the newest teacher at the local school and you had signed up to help run the arts and crafts table
  • You’re like in shock as the prince just casually walks over to the table and all of the kids are just like “taetae!!”
  • All of them are grabbing his hands and pulling him here and there bc everybody wants to show him what they’ve made so far
  • You’re just kinda :) bc he’s really good with kids and it’s so endearing like he’s just as animated as they are and he plays along with everything they say
  • He notices you and he doesn’t recognize you so he comes over bc he likes knowing everyone
  • You turn lowkey !!! bc the prince is talking to you the other teachers told you he might make an appearance but that he normally focused on the kids
  • You’re covered in paint and your hair’s fallen out of the ponytail it had been in less than an hour ago and this isn’t exactly how you would’ve liked to meet the prince but honestly to him, it’s just another reason to like you
  • He’d seen you interacting with the kids and they all told him you were their favorite teacher bc you made classes fun and you always told them stories and you’d make funny voices for the characters so they all just adored you and you of course adored them
  • He starts talking to you and it’s all just questions about you like how long have you been teaching do you like it what’re your hobbies
  • You’d heard that he was just a lovely human being but you were still surprised at just how nice he is
  • The only thing that stops the conversation is when one of the lil girls is like come help me and he can never say no to the kids so he says goodbye and follows her back to her table
  • You can see him look over at you several times throughout the day, always smiling when you catch him instead of looking away
  • You two slowly but surely begin to spend more time together at the parties
  • He starts bringing you a flower from the castle’s garden every time he sees you
  • It’s always a different flower and it’s always just one (he does give you this cheesy line of “bc there’s only one you” when you ask him why)
  • You both end up at the same table so you decide to sit next to him and he just smiles at you but the kids notice
  • “Y/N and Taetae are dating!!!”
  • They all start to giggle amongst each other and Tae isn’t helping since he’s giggling with them and you’re just lowkey flustered bc what we just smiled at each other that doesn’t mean we’re dating
  • You do have to admit that he is pretty flirty but you’d assumed it was just the way he is until one of the other teachers told you she’d never seen him act like that around anyone else
  • His hand keeps brushing against yours whenever he grabs something and you realize it's no longer accidental
  • You’d assumed it was the first few times but by the fifth time you were beginning to suspect he was doing it on purpose (spoiler he was)
  • He stays behind after all of the kids leave to help clean up
  • He basically just sticks by your side and talks to you the entire time bc he’s been waiting an entire month for this he has a lot to tell you
  • “So we got this new puppy at the castle, you should come see him”
  • Yes that’s his way of lowkey asking you out
  • You don’t know until you get to the castle that he actually set up a lil dinner for just you two
  • It’s actually really nice bc you do get to play with the puppy but you also get to actually sit down and get to know the human puppy
  • You two drink hot cocoa and play with the lil pup and it’s honestly the best date you’ve ever been on bc it’s so innocent and cute and it’s just filled with laughter and asking each other random questions
  • “Would you rather live with a worm or an owl”
  • “Ice cream or cookies?”
  • “You can meet the author of your favorite book but you can’t say anything, would you still want to meet them?”
  • Before you leave, you get brave and decide to kiss his cheek and he just smiles s o wide
  • It takes him like a solid hour to calm down bc oh my god you just kissed his cheek you like him back this is great news everYONE MUST KNOW
  • And yes he does tell every single person he knows

Derek Meeting Your Parents

Author: Me!

Paring: Derek Morgan X Reader

Warnings: None

Summary: A very nervous Derek meets you parents over dinner

Requested: Yes, ‘Hey! Would ypu write something about the 1st time your parents meet Spencer? Thank uuuuu 💗’ ‘Im sorry I just send u a request about your parents meeting your bf, could it possibly be about Derek instead? Thanks & sorry ❤😜’

Word Count: 783

First time you parents meet Derek…

It had taken months for you to convince Derek to meet your parents, but even before that it had taken months before your parents convinced you to invite Derek to meet them. You see you weren’t ashamed of Derek, if anything you where ashamed of your Mom, as you knew she would end up showing Derek some sort of photo/video or anything she could use to embarrass you, thats just the way she was. Your Dad on the other hand has always been quite protective of you, as you have always been ‘Daddy’s little girl’ therefore you where quite sceptical about the success this meeting would bring, as the last boyfriend you brought home proceeded to break up with you 2 days later because of how your Dad, ‘just scares him’. In the end you decided it would be easier to just accept your fate, and allow the meeting to proceed. Your parents were thrilled and planned a whole meal at your family home almost immediately, it was easy enough for you to convince Derek to go and that brought you to right now, where you were currently getting ready. “Do I look okay babe?” You hear Derek’s smooth voice ask from down the corridor pulling you from your thoughts, you poke your head out from the living room where you where putting your shoes on “Yes, perfect.” You reply, a small smile gracing your lips.

*At the house*

Derek’s breath quickened noticeably as you approached the front door, you grabbed his hand reassuringly and smiled at him before gently pressing the doorbell. Before you had even the time to take your finger off the button, your Mom had swung the door open, looking happy as ever. “You must be Derek!” She exclaims, “Please. Do come in.” As Derek walks through the door your mom shoots you a sly wink. “Dining room is just down the hall sweetie.” You Mom tells a lost looking Derek as you chuckle, she stops you before you have the time to follow after him, you turn to look at her, “He seems like a nice looking gentleman.” She whispers “MOM!”, "Okay, that’s all I had to say, off you go.” You smile at her once more as you make your way to the dining room, you see Derek talking to your Dad about something you assumed was gym related. You sit down next to Derek and join the conversation at parts. “Food.” is all your Mom says as she comes in with mountains of different dishes “Wow, this looks amazing Mrs (Y/L/N)” Derek compliments with a smile “Thank you! I cooked this myself, I used-“, you beat her to it, "Mom, I don’t think Derek wants to know about your cooking techniques.” “Actually I would, continue Miss (Y/L/N).” Derek says seeming generally interested as your Mom starts ranting about her food through half the whole dinner, not that your complaining as Derek is completely lovely, smiling and saying all the right things. Just as everyone is nearly finished your Dad decides to speak up, “So Derek, what do you do for a living?” He asks, voice slightly rough. Oh no, the dreaded questioning begins. After Derek explains what being a profiler is your Dad decides to pipe up again, “Surely, that is a dangerous job, i’m sure by living with (Y/N) it puts her in a lot of danger as well?” He questions, but to me it sounded more like a statement, and apparently Derek did to as I saw him tense beside me, panicked but he answers anyway “I protect (Y/N) as much as I can, I make sure she is always safe because I would never let anything happen to her. You do have a truly amazing daughter.” Derek says meaning every word, and winning over both your parents hearts instantaneously. Luckily that put an end to the questioning. As soon as everyone is done, and Derek takes out all the plates, your mom decides to whip out the photo albums. “Oh God.” You groan. This proceeds for the next hour before you and Derek decide it’s time to leave. (By you and Derek, that meant you and you were thoroughly unimpressed with the many. Many. Photo albums) "Thank you for this wonderful dinner Miss and Mr (Y/L/N).” Derek says as you walk through the door, “Please call me (Y/M/N)” Your Mom preens, “And me (Y/D/N)” finishes you Dad. And as he approaches the car, you were standing by, you see him do a little happy dance making you laugh. Oh how you loved that man.

Here it is, the legendary autograph. I was such a nervous wreck as the line inched closer to that red door, the pit in my stomach worsening. When I stepped into that room and saw him-this man’s work being responsible for a huge part of who I am today and how incredibly humble he is-I started to cry. I sniffed as I told his assistant to tell him that I’ve been following his work since I was nine years old and that he continues to be an inspiration for me. I also pointed out my little brother who came all the way to see him! Having Masashi Kishimoto personally sign and give this to me is the greatest honor. I don’t know what I did to deserve such good karma, but I wish you all luck, those who are trying to get his autograph, anyway. It’s such an overwhelming and fulfilling experience, meeting your favorite author and the man responsible for your childhood hero. You don’t realize how big a deal it is until it’s over. Bless Kishi. ❤️❤️❤️

What it’s like when you accidentally meet your fav author.

4/4 You Meet His Parents/He Meets Your Parents

Requested: Ye

Author: Brit


  • I’m sorry I combined both of these bc I’m a lazy fuck
  • Ashton’s is super sappy, I’m sorry I couldn’t help myself
  • Luke’s is really long, I’m sorry I couldn’t help myself


“So what are we doing today?” You asked Ashton with eagerness and wide eyes, “What’s the surprise?”

Your boyfriend kept his eyes on the road, hands on the wheel, and smirked. “You’ll see when we get there,” He taunted. You groaned and threw your head back on the car seat. He forced you to throw on a casual dress and helped you bake cookies. “I think you’ll like it.”

You settled back into the seat with a smile on your face form Ashton’s reassurance. Your eyes were glued to the window as the trees sped by you. He pulled off the highway and was now cruising down some town roads. The little shops began to get sparse and soon only trees and dirt roads were around you. He drove into the driveway of a small house with balloons hanging on the mailbox. “Ash?” You said suspiciously.

“Ok, before you get mad,” He started, automatically making you nervous, “Just know that I love you lots and that’s why I’m doing this.” You raised an eyebrow and he sighed, “It’s my mom’s birthday barbeque and when she invited me, she told me to bring you.”

“What?” You shrieked, “I can’t meet your family! I’m so inadequate.”

“No, you’re not,” Ashton brought you close and kissed your lips gently. You looked up at him for certainty. He Brushed your hair out of your face and said, “They’re gonna love you, I promise.”

You nodded and took a deep breath, “Shall we go in, then?”

Your boyfriend’s face lit up, “Yes, we shall!” He jumped out of the car and opened the door for you. He took your hand and led you to the door. Inside, there were a bunch of family members and friends, socializing and having a great time. You spotted a blonde woman with a party hat and noticed the resemblance to Ashton. “Mom!” He called towards the woman and got her attention. Her face lit up as she saw the two of us. “Mom,” Ash said as he hugged her, “This is Y/N.”

“Happy Birthday, Mrs. Irwin,” You smiled and blushed, trying to make a good impression.

She pulled you into a hug and planted a kiss on the top of your head, “Thank you for coming. It means a lot to me. Ashton’s never brought a girl home to us before?”

You looked at him, “Really?” He nodded as his cheeks tinted pink.

Mrs. Irwin pulled you into the kitchen where Ash couldn’t hear you. “Y/N,” She cooed as she ran her palm along your cheek, “You are the love of his life. Every time he calls me al he wants to do is talk about you. He’s wanted to bring you here for a little while now. It just makes me so happy that you broke down his walls. Thank you.”

“Wow,” You let out a deep breath, “I don’t even know what to say.”

Before you could finish your thought, Ashton’s siblings ran in. “Is this her, Mum?” Harry squealed and stood directly in front of you, “She’s too pretty for Ashy.”

“Y/N, can we go shopping together?” Lauren asked eagerly.

As you bonded with the Irwin family, Ashton watched from afar. He crossed his arms and smiled at the floor, thinking about how lucky he was to have you.


You and your boyfriend were sitting on the couch, wrapped up in blankets, drinking hot chocolate, and staring at the fire in front of you. Your legs were thrown over his lap with his hands running up and down your thighs. “Hey, Y/N,” Calum whispered, afraid to ask the question that had been bothering him for a while. You looked at him and nodded. “Why don’t you ever talk about your parents?”

“I don’t want to go over this again,” You mumbled and lifted your legs off him, swinging them to hang over the couch. You stood up and went to your bedroom, shutting the door behind you. Calum was left wide-eyed and regretful.

The next day, you decided it was best if you put your small fit behind you. Calum was in the kitchen, cooking dinner for you. He was actually a really good chef. He learned it from his mother. You were relaxed on the couch, reading a book as Cal sang Usher songs to himself. The scents traveled from the oven over to your nose. You got up and snaked your arms around Calum’s waist, resting your chin on his shoulder. You looked and saw the amount of food he was making. “Why are you cooking so much?” You chuckled, “This is almost enough to feed Luke!”

Suddenly, the doorbell rang. You let go of your boyfriend. “Who’s that?” You asked, but he stayed silent, “Cal, what did you do?” Still no answer. You went to the door and opened it. Standing in front of you were two people you weren’t exactly excited to see. “Mom? Dad?” You whispered in shock.

“Hello, Mr. and Mrs. Y/L/N,” Cal rushed to the door and shook each of their hands, “It’s so nice to meet you. Thank you for joining us for dinner.”

“Thank you for inviting us, Calum,” Your mom smiled, though weary of your reaction. Your boyfriend led them into the house and sat them at the dining room table.

Your dad spoke with eloquence, “This is lovely, thank you.”

You scoffed and rolled your eyes. You couldn’t believe Calum went behind your back to do this. Your mom was about to say something to you, but you didn’t stick around to hear it. You stormed out of your apartment altogether and sat outside in the hallway, face in your hands.

“I’ll go check on her, I’ll be right back,” You heard Cal’s voice from inside. Sure enough, he ended up right beside you. “Y/N,” His voice was comforting, “Talk to me.”

“You had no right to do this,” You spat. Calum looked down, feeling guilty. “You wanna know why I didn’t want to see them?” You asked, ready to spill, “When I was younger, they kicked my older brother out of the house, just cut him off. He was my best friend. I was so mad; I didn’t even know why they did it, Cal. I went off to live with my aunt and uncle. I haven’t talked to my parents in years. I didn’t want to tell you because you come from such a perfect family.”

Your boyfriend stayed silent for a couple of seconds. “I know,” he finally said, causing you to look up in shock. “Your parents told me everything when we talked on the phone the other day. They’re so sorry, Y/N. Like you said, it’s been years. Don’t you think it’s time to hear them out?” You sighed and nodded. Then let’s go in,” He said, taking you hand. It was time to face your parents.


“What about this one?” Michael held up a piece of paper with a light shade of red covering it. You stuck out your tongue and scrunched up your nose. “Alright,” He laughed, “This one?” This time he showed you one with a deep green.

You shook your head, “Michael, no, this is our bedroom. Don’t you want our wall to be soothing? I don’t wanna feel like I’m being screamed at every morning!” You and your boyfriend were moving in together and were shopping for colors to paint the rooms.

“Mike?” A man’s voice from behind you called. You turned around to see a man and woman with uncanny resemblance to your boyfriend.

His face lit up as he ran to the couple. He threw his arms around both of them at once. “Mum! Dad!” He cheered and gave them each a smooch on the cheek. You laughed at his giddiness, which caused all three of them to turn and look at you.

“Hi,” You squeaked in beyond quiet voice.

“Mikey, who’s this?” His mom asked with a smile on her face.

Michael took your hand and forced you over. “Dad, Mum,” He gleamed, “This is my girlfriend, Y/N.”

“Oh! Y/N!” Mrs. Clifford grabbed both of your hands, “Michael has told us so much about you!”

“The four of us have got to go to lunch together,” His dad exclaimed, “There’s a great little café right down the street.”

Your boyfriend turned to you and ran his fingers through your hair. “Are you up for that, love?” He asked, “I know you didn’t ask to meet my parents today, so it’s ok if you don’t wanna.”

You took the hand running through your hair and kissed his knuckles. “Let’s do it,” You grinned, excited to get to know the Clifford’s, also just knowing it would make Michael happy.

The four of you walked to the café and sat down for a nice lunch. “So what were you kids doing out and about today?” Mr. Clifford asked.

“Well,” Mikey said slowly, “Y/N and bought a flat together. We were picking out colors to paint our bedroom since neither of us liked the yellow that was already there.”

“But Michael’s being stupid about the colors,” You groaned.

Mrs. Clifford chuckled and said, “Let me see the choices. Mother knows best.” You laid out three colors. Michael’s red and green, and a light blue-gray one that you chose on your own. “Oh, this is a no-brainer!” She threw her hands up, “These two are absolutely hideous!” She declared, tossing away Michael’s.

“Yes!” You cheered.

“Mum!” He whined.

She shrugged her shoulders, “What? Your girlfriend has good taste. You need to keep her around.”

You laughed, “Agreed!”

Michael nudged you and smirked, “I think I’ll keep you around a little longer.”


The alarm clock screamed at you to wake up. Your eyes shot open and you sat up straight. Your boyfriend was asleep next to you. His face was shoved into the pillow, not bothering to get up. You turned your clock off. “Luke,” You tried to wake him up, “Luke, let’s go. We have to get ready.” You only received moaning in response. “Luke!” You hit him over the head with a pillow.

He rolled over, turning his back towards you. He sniffed and seemed to melt out of bed. He sluggishly made his way to the bathroom and started blasting music. You hopped out of bed too and picked out your outfit. You slid a dress on over your head and brushed your hair. You banged on the bathroom door, “Luke, hurry up, I have to put on my face!” The music cut off and the door swung open. A very pale Luke stepped forward. “Babe!” You exclaimed, “You look awful!”

“I’m fine,” He muttered and cleared his throat.

“Come here,” You ordered and grabbed his chin. You put a hand on his forehead and flinched. “You’re burning up, get back in bed.” He hesitantly crawled back under the blankets. You sighed, as you knew you had to cancel your plans. You went into the bathroom and washed your face. Your eyes moved along the sink and noticed that the hair dryer was plugged in and warm. You growled. You knew Luke was nervous to meet your parents, but you didn’t expect him to fake sick in order to get out of it. Luckily, you had a few tricks up your sleeve.

You went back into you bedroom where Luke was moaning and groaning galore. “I’m sorry you had to cancel, babe,” He coughed, “I was really looking forward to meeting the people who brought an angel into the world.”

“Yeah, it sucks,” You sighed again, trying not to smile. About half an hour later, the doorbell rang and you jumped to get it. You let your parents in, all three of you trying not to laugh. “Lukey!” You called as you entered the room with your parents trailing close behind, “Look who’s here?”

He sat up with wide eyes. “Oh!” He reached into a drawer and pulled a shirt over his head. “You must be Mr. and Mrs. Y/L/N,” He cleared his throat and started to get out of bed, “Uh, I’m uh, Michael, Y/N’s girlfriend,” He stuttered nervously.

“No, no, honey,” You pushed him back in bed, “You’re Luke and you’re my boyfriend.” You turned to your parents and winked, “The fever must be getting to his head.”

You mom chirped, “Well, that won’t do! Luckily, Mr. Y/L/N and I made our special soup,” She pulled out a giant tub of it.

“The secret ingredient is snail,” Your dad whispered, “It’s a French thing.”

Luke gulped and smiled, “Thank you.”

“They also brought a movie to make you feel better!” You stroked his cheek, “It always made me feel better when I was sick.”

“It’s the taping of Y/N’s birth!” Your mom giggled.

“Oh!” Luke panicked, a bead of sweat dripping down his forehead.

Your dad shook his head, “Oh dear, it looks like your fever is getting higher. Y/N, get the thermometer. We gotta stick it up his caboose to get the temp at highest accuracy.”

Luke jumped out of the bed and pressed his back against the wall. “Whoa! Whoa! Wait!” He shouted, “I’m not sick! I lied because I was afraid of meeting you guys. I’m a big mess of shyness and anxiety. I was afraid you wouldn’t like me.”

“I knew it!” You cheered and kissed his cheek, “Babe, I’m so sorry to put you through this, but you have to understand that you can’t run away from this.”

“Besides,” Your mom cooed, “We’re very loving people. We’ll accept you even if you are a big mess of shyness and anxiety.”

“Really?” Luke asked.

“Really,” Your dad put a hand on his shoulder, “Now how about the four of us go out to brunch, like we originally planned?”

“I’d love that.“
