memorizing him was as easy

anonymous asked:

College!AU GOM, Nijimura, Himuro, and Hanamiya Headcanons if s/o went to the same university as them?

Kuroko

  • still with a low presence, it’s more often than not that he has to find you in a crowd rather than the other way around
    • the two of you have started to designate certain meeting spots all around campus for this purpose
  • he will sometimes sit in your classes during his free time

Kise

  • he made the mistake of choosing some of his classes just so he could be in the same ones as you his first semester
    • that was when the both of you found out you have wildly different interests
  • now he just bases his breaks around yours, trying to match them up

Aomine

  • he’s almost never in his dorm room, always sleeping over in yours and getting in trouble with your RA
    • your both pretty sure your roommate knows him better than his own
  • the two of you start investing early on to get your own apartment together near the college

Midorima

  • dates are often spent in the college library where the both of your have your noses buried in books
    • late night study sessions that last into the early hours of the morning become a regular thing for you two
  • by now he has your coffee order memorized, so he just shows up with it

Murasakibara

  • it’s easy to find him no matter the time of day because he chose all his classes based on how close together they were distance-wise
    • that and he still manages to be the tallest out of most students
  • you two always make it a habit to each lunch together, even if that means having it really early or really late

Himuro

  • the two of you have a small, cheap apartment together just off campus
    • he likes to joke with you that living there is just practice for when you two finally own a real home together
  • though you’re in different majors, the two of you try to have at least one elective together each semester

Akashi

  • it’s still rare for you to see him around campus because of your drastically different class schedules
    • the most you get during the day is a passing wave as you two walk to your next class
  • to remedy that problem, you live together off campus in a home he has

Nijimura

  • for now he’s only a part-time students, using his other day hours at a job he uses to pay for college
    • it’s because of this that you two normally can’t see each other
  • on his days off, he spends his free hours joining you in your classes that he’s allowed to sit in

Hanamiya

  • actually going to lecture is a waste of time in his opinion, so you have to physically drag him there if you want him to join you in class
    • you two are polar opposites, him being the student to only show up for exams and you being the one to never miss a day
  • the only days you miss are the rare ones where he convinces you to stay

Listening again to Taylor Swift’s Red, picked up something I hadn’t - “memorize” used in two different songs

In Stay Stay Stay,

you took the time to memorize me
my fears my hopes and dreams
I just like hanging out with you
all the time

and then in Red,

memorizing him was as easy as knowing all the words to your old favorite song

and I thought on it and realize this downright sapiosexual knowledge-as-intimacy theme is pretty important in Tayswift, it’s the load-bearing element of YBWM

I’m the one who makes you laugh
when you know you’re ‘bout to cry
I know your favorite songs
and you tell me bout your dreams
think I know where you belong
think I know it’s with me
can’t you see I’m the one who understands you
been here all along so why can’t you see
you belong with me

it’s even important in negative (which is how interrogators tease personality from pretense) in Red,

forgetting him was like trying to know someone you never met

thinking about that, and also remembering when her transparent brand strategy was accessibility and fans chosen to meet her would gush about her casually referencing something they mentioned on their tumblr long ago, and it’s like

AWW, she really IS just like us, in that her real output is multilayered invocations of accreted culture but she charms incidental humans by studying up on whatever incidental shit they happen to be and mirroring it back at them

I just want to know you better
know you better
know you better now
I just want to know you
know you
know you

Morning + Wesper?

sunlight cut open the slats of the blinds, glinting off the sharp cut bones of jesper’s face. wylan reached out to trace the line of freckles beneath his left eye across the bridge of his nose—freckles his deep brown skin made near impossible to distinguish except in the morning light when they glowed—and sleeping beside him made it easy for wylan to memorize the placement anyway. jesper’s voice, groggy with sleep groaned, “again, merchling?” as he blinked hazy stupor away and revealed his bright gray eyes full of endearment. meeting the lustrous gaze made wylan’s breath catch, hand suspended in place, blush starting at his neck before bleeding its way into his cheeks. he croaked, “good morning”. and jesper answered with a mumbled “good morning” against lips as he kissed him. most mornings were spent that way, sleepy kisses and soft hands against warm skin. freckles counted and kissed, golden curls tickling dark brown skin, and ceaseless serenity.

Summary: Maybe they had always been working up to this moment. This moment, now, is just a culmination of all that hard work. Maybe it’s impossible to fall in love with someone all at once. It takes time. It takes weeks and months and late nights and early mornings and traipsing out of the rink, grinning and euphoric and leaning on each other. They say it takes a lot. But, if he’s being honest, now it just sort of feels like the easiest thing in the world.
It’s the easiest thing to stand, to move forward, to watch the fight drain out of Bittle’s shoulders and now he just seems tired. Jack wonders how long Bittle’s been in love with him and why haven’t they been doing this for longer and what a waste of time and oh–
Bittle’s looking at him and he must see something that gives it away, because he smiles up at Jack and Jack is helpless to smile back. Bittle is incandescent, always has been, but Jack is not afraid anymore.

Most memorable line: It stuns him sometimes, how easy it is. How easy it was to fall; how quickly it happened.

Can I ask about Cuban Kevin? Like idk just infodump about him please I would love

OKAY OKAY GUESS WHO IS FINALLY DOING THIS

•u bet he says go to penis bc when he was young and he first found out carajo also meant penis, instead of saying go to hell (vete al carajo) he says go to penis (same thing)

•he has that rlly good pan con mantequilla everyday for breakfast, the one with the flat and “crunchy” bread and melted butter

•la culebra from beny more is his BOP, no one else can sing or dance along to that song without his permission

•he and naba always dance with each other when a celia cruz song comes on the radio

•you bet he loses his m i n d whenever someone says “che! viva la revolución!” and/or they’re totally misinformed ab cuba

•sometimes he does the thing where he’s walking and he sUDDENLY HAS TO MOVE HIS HIPS SIDE TO SIDE WHILE HUMMING A SONG (i can only describe it as The Hip Phenomenon)

•he definitely curses like a sailor in cuban when no one is around, but he taught the other elders replacement curses like “me cago en la madre de los tomates” (even tho tomates didn’t replace the curse, it’s suddenly better?? that’s always stumped me tbh)

•HE IS A MASTER OF THROWING LA CHANCLA

•again, he loses his absolute mind when people only think about russia when someone mentions communist countries (news flash: cuba is a communist country too and it is not👏good)

•he forgives people though, because they may just be uninformed since literally no one ever talks about cuba (the cuba tag on here is made up of like 30 posts, the town where my family is from has about 3)

•he absolutely d e v o u r s arroz con pollo and picadillo

•i think i already said this but, arnold learned spanish by watching all the star wars movies in spanish over and over again (he already memorized them in english so it was pretty easy for him)

•connor knows french, so they know 2 of the romance languages, and the rest of the elders’ bilingual capabilities are basically what u heard in that one part of hello

•kevin is quite possible the proudest cuban u will ever see (sometimes instead of saying “hi, i’m kevin” he’ll say “hi, i’m cuban” and he doesn’t bother correcting himself bc they’re both true statements)

hhhhhh i love cuban kevin with all of my soul aaaaa

“Loving him is like trying to change your mind
Once you’re already flying through the free fall
Like the colors in autumn
So bright just before they lose it all
Losing him was blue like I’d never known
Missing him was dark grey all alone
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you’ve never met
But loving him was red
Loving him was red
Touching him is like realizing all you ever wanted was right there in front of you
Memorizing him was as easy as knowing all the words to your old favorite song
Fighting with him was like trying to solve a crossword and realizing there’s no right answer
Regretting him was like wishing you never found out love could be that strong”

JoJonium 4 - Hirohiko Araki Speaks About Character Creation - Jo

TL note: Sorry for the huge delay between the second and third installment (it was and is still convention season). It’s hard to fully convey how jovial Araki writes in these blurbs but it’s pretty funny so see him talking about serial killers in his usual playful tone. 

Viz announced a domestic release of Jojonium at AX this year (first volume should be out in February 2015!) I highly recommend buying them when they come out because they will have all the color pictures and will possibly even be hardcover!

Passionate As Sin (l.h.)

inspired by “red” - taylor swift || all pieces from the tsinspired!5sos night here ● all my personal tsinspired!5sos pieces here

wc: 5385 || +masterlist

I. Touching him was like realizing all you ever wanted was right there in front of you.

The clock ticked on the wall hung by your front door, the minute hand scarcely moving a hair despite the amount of times you casted your eyes to it; waiting. It wasn’t often you found yourself caught up in counting the seconds to occupy yourself but you were (hopelessly) trying to ignore the rustling of your boyfriend in his bedroom, adjacent to the living room couch of his you were sat on. A few days prior, after a night spent with friends bar hopping, you’d succumbed to Luke’s whinings about helping him pack for the tour he was set to embark on in less than thirteen hours. However, you’d come to regret your decision as you sat with sweaty hands twiddling in your lap while the blonde stuffed a random assortment of things into his suitcase, dwelling on how you were going to deal with him being gone for five months.

Though this wasn’t the first tour you and Luke had been together for, it was the first in which you and the blonde were official. You’d dance around each other for ages, blatant flirting and innocent-almost-mistaken-for-accidental touches carrying on for the better part of a year. This time though, the promise of a future shared with the guitarist was clear and nearly tangible considering your lease with your current roommate was up at almost the exact time that Luke would be returning home and you’d already picked out an apartment with him. He’d taken you to meet his family multiple times, his mother your biggest fan, and his face was squished somewhere in the confines of a picture frame in your parent’s house with your younger cousins hanging off his back at your family’s most recent reunion. You had a designated coffee mug at his place while he had a blue toothbrush sat next to a green one at yours.

The castle is full of corridors, hidden or otherwise. Most of them are long, puzzling ones, large portraits decorating the passing walls and a tasseled carpet constantly rolled out. But in an amusing contrast, the hidden passages are the least decorated, and the most straightforward. Mikleo finds sense in such construction - they’re supposed to be emergency exits for harsher, crueler times.

But the kingdom is moving steadily towards a peaceful, perhaps permanently blissful era - and so these secret paths are merely that, maybe to become little heirlooms for his future descendants, long down the road. Leaving them to become dust and moth covered, however, is not a part of that - and with little thought and much glee, he makes use of the hidden corridors as much as possible.
