I used to rule the world,
Seas would rise when I gave the word.
Now in the morning I sleep alone,
Sweep the streets I used to own..

Spotlights and camera flashes were all over you when you entered Park Hyatt Seoul’s grand architectural lobby with the paparazzi following you around like hungry wolves. Of course, being the way that you are, you loved the spotlight yourself, you turned around and flaunted your half-million dollar worth Designer Armani Collezioni low V-neck Diamond Sequined Chiffon Champagne Cocktail Dress. It is expensive so, of course, the name is that long. It fitted the worth of the carefully made designer gown.
You made sure you looked like you’re going to own the night.

You flashed the media a high wattage smile as your least favorite reporter cornered you and started asking annoying questions.

“(Y/N)! You look fab! How was Italy? The industry is in an uproar since you came back! Also, you go long way back with Chairman Han’s eldest son, right? Is he single?? Do you now permit him to date anyone?” The female news anchor laughed in a high pitched tone. “Oh gosh! The Han siblings are so gorgeous! No wonder where they got their genes!”
Fake B. And who cares about knowing where they got their genes?
But you can play along.

And what the hell? That dude is probably dating his cat.

“Oh, my~ Long time no see! Well, of course, you can certainly see the Italy effect on me, yes?” You graced them with a soft grin, showing your perfect whites. “I believe all those years that involved myself studying abroad, culturing my skills and falling in love with Italy itself was truly beneficial for my beauty.”

You two laughed like troubled teenagers who’re fighting for the Queen B spot.
If she’s fake, you can fake it better.
After all, these greedy minions only want a scoop to tell the world. You’re not going to give them the liberty of prying your life.

“I can see the change! Your skin is certainly glowing,” She gushed, scanning you from head to foot. Your braided floral crown hairstyle bobbed against your movements, your gold accent hair accessories shining every time the lights flashed through it. Your smile grew wider when she perfectly pointed out how gorgeous you’ve been despite the years that passed that you weren’t inside the country.

Olympic!AU Headcanons

I really love the Olympics, and I’m watching a lot of them atm, so this just kind of happened. @kurtwxgners, @jubilationlxee thx for listening to my thirst for Alex Summers in a speedo.

A/N: I’m just putting them all on the same team bc they’re my fave squad and it would hurt my heart to split them up. Also, everyone’s human, bc I can’t see the Olympic committee letting someone with a mutation for super speed compete in track events etc.

  • They all meet at the Olympic flagship training facility for their country, and become good friends despite competing in very different events, because they’ve all been forced into the same high pressure environment and it brings them together
  • They’ve all been there for varying amounts of time but they bond over their overpowering drive to succeed and their love of their sport
  • Kurt competes in Gymnastics
    • He’s a pretty good all-rounder but his best apparatus is definitely rings
    • He competes in rings, vault, horizontal and parallel bars and the team event, and he’s really well liked by basically everyone on the team because he’s such a sweetheart
    • It’s his first Olympics but he’s been considered an up and coming in the gymnastics scene for a while
    • He and Jubilee are the darlings of the team because everyone thinks they’re super, super sweet
    • He loves the sportsmanship of the games, and he really wants to become an ambassador for the sport to children from unprivileged families when he stops competing
    • When he first arrives at the Olympic training complex, he’s really, really nervous, and doesn’t think he’s good enough to deserve to be there but everyone makes sure he gets lots of positive reinforcement to feed his confidence because he wouldn’t be there if he didn’t deserve to be
  • Jubilee is the newest member of the female Gymnastics team
    • She’s the youngest on the team, and an absolute sweetheart and the entire world loves her. She’s the media darling of the entire Olympic team
    • She has explosive strength and excels in the floor events, but competes in all categories
    • She’s a power gymnast, favouring shows of strength and athleticism over artistry but she’s remarkably graceful for a power gymnast and always picks up a lot of points for connections between elements, no matter what apparatus she’s competing on
    • She’s the queen of the team’s social media, coordinating cute selfies, or Q&As with the athletes and she’s so cute and nice about it that everyone goes along with it without complaining
    • She’s famous for never saying anything negative about any of the other competitors, and always says really wonderful things about them in her post competition interviews
    • Her street clothes are the envy of the entire team
  • Peter is a middle distance track runner
    • He’s a relative newcomer, and this is his first Olympics and his first time anywhere near the national team at all, so he’s something of a newcomer to the track and field scene
    • He made waves in the track world by almost beating out an old national favourite for 1st in a national track meet
    • He jumped from regional level coaching to international standard training in the course of about a month and he’s now considered a wild card and someone to watch during the games
    • His strongest event is the 800m, but he also competes the 400m and is frequently a part of the men’s 4x400m relay team
    • He didn’t start formal training till later than most Olympians do, but he’s been running his entire life as a way for him to relax and not think about his problems, so as soon as he figured out he was good enough to go pro, he did
    • His post and pre competition interviews are legendary because he talks A LOT of shit about just about everything
  • Scott is a rower, and his main event is the single scull, but he’s also two seat in the mens 8
    • He tried swimming like Alex when he was young, but it wasn’t for him.
    • He signed up for rowing one year and when he got in the boat so many things just sort of clicked into place for him
    • Something about the structured, repetitive nature of the technique required really helps him focus and relax
    • He always excelled at single scull but once he figured out more about himself and matured a little and learned to work better in a team he became an invaluable member of the mens 8
    • He’s the youngest rower in the 8 but has some of the best technique on the team
    • He has this insane drive and motivation to succeed in his field that translates really well into his sport, pushing him up the world rankings at a remarkable pace
    • Rowing gave him the best ass anyone’s ever seen bar none
  • Jean competes in both steeplechase and hurdles because she’s just really hardcore that way  
    • Her focus and precision is absolutely unmatched in the rest of the track team, but she’s been working at it longest, having started running track when she was pretty young
    • She competes in 3000m Steeplechase and sometimes the 400m hurdles (she likes steeplechase best)
    • She’s basically all leg, and seemingly flies over the obstacles in her path
    • She used to run middle distance and some hurdles, but then in a fit of contrarianism, she decided to take up steeplechase and she was astoundingly good at it
    • She and Ororo are best friends because they’ve been training in and around the Olympic complex for longest and they’re both ambassadors for the same brand.
    • When people see them together at formal events, everyone is intimidated because they’re so powerful and beautiful
    • She’s basically the team’s unofficial mum, mentoring and supporting all the younger team members and making sure everyone gets to the right place on time when they’re overseas
  • Ororo is a judoka and she’s considered one of the strongest gold medalling potentials for this year’s games
    • Her focus and discipline are insane, and she’s the captain of the entire Olympic team
    • Once one of the male judokas made a scathing remark about how she was ‘really good, for a girl’ and she dislocated his elbow
    • She’s been training at the Olympic complex for the longest, having headed to the main training centre when she qualified for the junior Olympics for judo, and she’s basically been training there ever since
    • She and Jean are best friends and have been running in Olympic circles for years, so even though they’re in entirely different events, they see each other all the time
    • The two of them are also sponsored athletes for the same brand, so they get to hang out together for events like that
    • Everyone on the team is in awe of/a little bit terrified of her because she’s so charismatic and intensely focused, and everyone thinks she should go to law school because arguing with her is basically impossible and she’d make one hell of a lawyer
  • Alex is a swimmer
    • He started when he was younger, and the measurable improvement in the pool and the way he could track his progress was therapeutic for him, becoming a way for him to control his anger
    • He likes controlled, technical aspects of the stroke as well as the speed at which he can move and being in the water makes him feel weightless and at peace
    • He’s been swimming his whole life, and he’s always been considered someone to watch in the butterfly events, but lately he’s taken on a freestyle event and not doing too badly in that
    • His best event is the 200m butterfly, but he also competes the 100m butterfly and the 400m freestyle
    • He swims the butterfly length on the mens medley relay teams
    • Everyone in the world immediately wants to jump his bones when they see him on TV in his first big televised meet, because he’s tall and angular and ripped as hell and the defined muscles in his broad shoulders are just b e g g i n g for someone to trace them with their tongue
  • Warren is a pole vaulter
    • The team calls him angel, because goddam can that boy soar. He rolls his eyes at the nickname but secretly loves it because he takes great pride in his pole vaulting abilities
    • He has a ‘bad boy’ rep because of his turbulent past and his propensity to trash talk the other competitors
    • Everyone is highkey in love with him because goddaMN HAVE YOU SEEN HIM
    • He used to do high jump as well, but dropped it before he moved from regional to national level because he liked pole vault better
    • He started the sport because the school guidance councellor told him that if he didn’t start putting all his restless, angry energy someplace productive he’d end up expelled or in juvie so he started competing and got really good
  • Warren, Peter and Jean are an unofficial squad because they all compete track and field events so they train together sometimes
    • The three of them became an internet sensation when Warren posted a vine of Peter trying to do some of Jean’s steeplechase hurdles and running into all of them with Jean losing her shit on the side of the track because Peter looks so ridiculous
    • They all go and support each other at their events if they’re not competing or training at the same time
    • There’s another vine out there somewhere that Warren took of Jean saying ‘hurdles is running with thinking involved’ and then Peter tackles her before the video cuts out
  • Everyone on the team absolutely loves Jubilee and Kurt, because they’re both such sweethearts to everyone else
    • Where possible, everyone gets out to watch their gymnastics competitions because there’s an unspoken team agreement about nurturing and supporting the youngest and most adorable members of the team
    • Also they’re incredible to watch in motion, and everyone on the team can appreciate the strength and athleticism required to perform the elements involved in gymnastics
  • Alex and Warren are the oldest on the team, but Ororo is the team captain because of her focus, discipline and accomplishments in her field
    • She’s been a part of the team for longest, and she’s the best at motivating the others
    • She also hosts a big movie night for the team a few days before they all fly out to the games
    • Alex and Warren are both really protective of the younger members of the team, becoming sort of unofficial parents/mentors to everyone 
    • They’re also really close friends, and they bond over their difficult upbringings and their anger issues, as well as the way they channel their anger into their sport
  • Peter and Scott get along really well, and they kind of take Kurt under their wing, taking it upon themselves to make him get out more
    • The three of them always make a point of sightseeing whenever they’re all someplace international for a competition of some kind 
    • They go out on weekends together when everyone’s at the training facility during the off season for their various sports 
  • It’s almost a religious experience for all of them as they step out into the stadium during the opening ceremony, because so many of them have fractured pasts or never really believed in themselves, but they’re here and they made it and all the time and effort and tears they poured into their sport paid off because they’re actually competing at the Olympics.
A Bet; Sherlock x Reader x John

Requested by Anon: Hello! Could you please do a sherlock x reader where Sherlock and John fight over your affection and you end up (unknowingly) choosing sherlock. And John is sad until he bumps into Mary and meets her on the street. (Sorry that it’s kind of out of sync.) can you also make it rather long? Thank you!😘😘😘


“Alright boys, I’m headed out. Try to behave I don’t want to visit the hospital again so soon,” you told Sherlock and John as you grabbed your coat.

“No guarantees,” Sherlock said from his chair thinking about a recent case he had just solved.

“John?” you called as a last resort.

“We’ll be fine. In case you’ve forgotten we are two fully grown men,” John relayed with a classic Watson smile.

“Well… you sometimes have self-destructive tendencies and Sherlock’s a sociopath but… sure, fully grown men,” you reassured yourself before walking out the door.

Nickel Ashmead, Usain Bolt, Asafa Powell & Yohan Blake win Gold in the Mens 4x100m Athletics Relay. It is Jamaica’s 3rd consecutive Olympic Gold in this event.

Usain Bolt did the “triple triple”, winning the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay at 3 Olympics Games (Beijing 2008, London 2012, and now Rio 2016). This gives him a total of 9 Olympic Gold medals, placing him equal-second behind Michael Phelps as the most-awarded Gold medalist ever.
