midnight-lightning

Hogwarts House Aesthetics

Gryffindor - thunderstorms, dancing in a rain storm, really close flashes of lightning, midnight conversations where you share secrets you never thought you’d share because you know they’ll never tell anyone, confrontation, the uncontrolled feeling of anger where you see red and your blood is hot in your veins, whispering during movies, loud bursts of laughter, voices gradually growing louder and louder in arguments, being a sore loser, adrenaline rushes, taking risks, goofing around, dancing like no one is watching, loud music and loud singing/yelling along, playfully insulting friends, over the top poses for photographs, being unable to keep a poker face, the sparks that fly off of fires, unbuttoned plaid shirts, talking back, everlasting incredibly fierce loyalty and love for their friends, the satisfaction that overrides all exhaustion after exercise, scraped knees, constantly covered in plasters, climbing trees, loud celebrations, giant hugs

Slytherin - tiny hidden tattoos, the cold but refreshing feeling of freezing wind hitting your face, resting bitch face, ripped jeans, being brutally honest with their friends when it’s needed without guilt, hoodies, the determination to prove themselves different to people’s ideas of them, an old teddy bear or knitted gift from their grandma they hide away but treasure, wary of too much affection, having only one or two really close friends and liking it that way, not wanting to share the things that bring them the most happiness because their favourite things belong to them, being able to find loopholes in everything and using it to their advantage, smug smiles when they know they’re right, the satisfaction of knowing someone is wrong and knowing they’re about to prove it, confidence, only ever respecting people if they prove they deserve it no matter how old the person may be, doing things just because people say they can’t, fierce protectors, swimming way underwater and pretending to be a mermaid, constantly cold hands

Ravenclaw - always getting the perfect present because they remember the smallest thing about you, messy smudges of paint on desks and skin, biting lips and tugging hair in concentration, the mixture of exhaustion and relief when they finally perfect their work, the sound of pencil against paper, saying they’re fine when they’re not because other things need to be focused on, always being ready to listen, giving great advice, elegance, the light shining through stained glass windows in churches, travelling to historic places, unfinished notebooks, unable to resist starting that new project even when they said they would take a break, knowing random bits of information that other people may find useless, classical music, listening to film soundtracks to concentrate, crumbling castles half hidden in fog, forgetting simple things but knowing everything about complicated stuff, realising the answer half way through a question and yelling it out, watching people pass by and trying to deduce their life

Hufflepuff - dungarees, flowers tucked into pockets, fairy lights, the feeling of warmth when you’re inside all cuddled up and there’s bad weather outside, blanket forts, decorating the walls with pictures of good memories, birthday cards filled with stick men and scribbles of inside jokes, oversized sweaters, decorating bags with badges, nicknames, not wanting to leave bed, wearing a blanket as a cape, laziness, swing sets and slides, the lovely feeling when a stranger is nice to you, the rush of happiness when you meet someone and just know they’re going to be a good friend, stickers all over their belongings, wind chimes, cottages in the country side, disney fairy tale movies, scented candles, singing christmas songs all year around and planning decorations in September, cheeks hurting from smiling so much, dressing up for halloween every year even if they’re just staying at home, lying on their friends laps, surprise presents even when there’s no occasion, collecting acorns, candy shops

Amidst the glitz and the glitter- A Tower of Terror AU

The year was 1937. The Hollywood Tower Hotel was bustling. On the twelfth floor, a party was in full swing, awaiting socialite Sara Lance, the guest of honor. Four other people climbed into the elevator with her–jazz singer Joe West and his daughter, Iris; Bartholomew Allen, the manager of the hotel; and Leonard Snart, not so secret leader of the Rogue’s gang. What happened next was an impossibility.

At exactly midnight, lightning struck the elevator, and everyone inside disappeared. 

Eighty years later, up and coming reporter, Kara Danvers, decides to write an investigative piece about the strange disappearances and what actually happened to the five poor souls inside the elevator. Cisco Ramon, the grandson of the caretaker, let’s her inside, but refuses to step foot into the lobby, swearing that the hotel is haunted. 

While wandering through the hotel, strange things begin happening around Kara. A vase throws itself off the table, a book snaps shut on the front desk, she swears that she sees someone dancing in the halls…

Then, she runs into Barry, who nearly gives her a heart attack. Barry explains that he lives in the area and likes to sneak in sometimes to try and solve the mystery. He shows Kara around, telling her the history of the hotel–including the owner, Eobard Thawne, who seemed pleasant, but was actually a dark, obsessive man who harassed the hotel manager until the day Allen disappeared. 

Kara tells him that the popular theory for the elevator disappearance is that Leonard Snart’s gang kidnapped them all off of one of the other floors to hold for ransom, but something went wrong. Barry, though, disagrees, saying that Leonard was a good man and as much a victim as the others. 

Kara leaves with a lot to think about. The next day, she gets a message from a man named Harrison Wells, the owner of the hotel property. Wells asks that she keeps him in the loop with the investigation, which she agrees. When she comes back to the hotel, Cisco is waiting outside. He tells her he found some old pictures and clippings about the hotel, and her heart nearly stops.

One of the pictures is of the hotel staff, taken in 1935. Barry is in the center. 

When she goes back inside, Barry is waiting for her, dressed like the same as the picture, with a guilty expression. Then, a young woman appears. Then, an older man. A lavishly dressed blonde woman appears next, followed lastly by a man she recognized from the clippings–Leonard Snart. 

The group explains that they were cursed by Eobard Thawne, the owner of the hotel, after Barry rejected his advances because he and Len are in love. Their souls are trapped in the hotel, and can’t move on until they take the elevator to the top floor for the party. Kara decides to help them break the curse by getting Cisco and her friend, Winn, to fix the elevator and help them to the party. 

What they don’t know is that Eobard Thawne is still alive, hiding under the name Harrison Wells, determined to make sure that Barry Allen suffers for eternity…

I think I solved the "why'd Lightning call mater and not Sally?" Mystery. He mentions to mater how late it is (which means it's REALLY late where Lightning is, remember maters in Arizona and "burning the midnight oil", lightnings somewhere in the Carolinas, at least three hours ahead.). Perhaps he's assuming Sally's already gone to bed, and knows mater tends to stay up late and dang it, he needs to talk to SOMEONE, and maters pretty good at perking him up... just a thought.

Summary:  Winter was the sound of his engine in the distance, getting louder as he approached your house. It was the warmth of his car, the half-empty fast food restaurants at midnight, with pale white lightning. It was the cozy jumper that was wrapped around his torso, disappearing into his black jeans.

For months it was just the two of you.

You slept during the day, and learned how to love at night.

Chapter 8: What Doesn’t Kill You

The storm that night was loud, violent, and terrifying. Many people did not get much sleep that night, since it was almost nigh impossible with the howling wind and the pounding rain that turned into hail sometime around midnight. Lightning and thunder were abundant, giving sight and voice to the storm. It also brought with it a chill that seeped through the walls with curling fingers. The trees outside twisted and bended, creaking as their foundations were pushed to the limits. For some trees it proved to be too much. The world had turned angry, taking shape and coming to life from the rage of the storm. The most anybody could do was try to block out the sounds and sights that seemed to come straight out of a nightmare.

Playful Banter by tobebulletproof - Jungkook likes to flirt, but Taehyung’s a little shy.

I Won’t Fall (in love with you) by taeharem - “You have to promise not to fall in love with me.”

Learning To Love by RainyDays26 - After an encounter with his favourite singer Jungkook, Taehyung is left with a crushed heart and cynical attitude. But when Jungkook loses everything, by some twist of fate, Taehyung is the only one who can help him. Begrudgingly, Taehyung helps Jungkook and he soon learns that sometimes the only one who can fix your heart is the person who broke it in the first place.

Even When The World Collapses Upon Us by chinesepickles - Third Prince of Baekje, Kim Taehyung, falls in love with a Sillan merchant he has come to know of as Jungkook. General Jeon of Silla trips heart-first for an errand boy in Baekje with the name of Taehyung.

Blooms of the Pomegranate Tree by merelypretty - Taehyung was born into nature. As the God of spring, he is destined to give life back to the earth, spending his days making the flowers bloom and the meadows flourish. All his life, he’s been convinced that the Gods of the underworld can only mean disaster; they bring death in their wake, which completely contradicts the work he puts forth in order to keep things alive. Still, he finds no reason that he can’t get along with Jeongguk, who is nice despite the deadly world he was born into.Your origins don’t define you - this is what Taehyung believes. It’d be so much easier if their parents thought the same.(Or: The Persephone/Hades!au that no one asked for)

The most beautiful moment in life by taleofatub - Taehyung is a lost college student. He falls in love with the radio DJ on Cool FM who comes on at midnight every day.

there’s lightning in your eyes i can’t deny by lilacflowers - taehyung films, jungkook is camera shy.

Date Me by flywithtaetae - Taehyung flirts with the cute high school boy and relishes in the flustered reaction he gets for almost an entire year. But when the following year comes along, he finds himself choking on his own words.

change my world (you’re the sunlight in my universe) by yururin -Jungkook is an artist who likes drawing on the cafe’s freedom wall. Taehyung sees his drawings, and falls in love. Featuring Jimin as the 100% done wingman, Yoongi as the possessive boyfriend, and Seokjin as the sassy mom.

Pity My Kiss (That You Won’t Take) by littleheichou - Part of the 100 Writing Prompts Challenge - No.4 “Salt”. Jungkook keeps coming back because the food’s convenient and it’s quiet there. And to talk to the pretty waiter.

Scrambled Eggs by LanLanLu - Someone behind him began to tap their foot, causing even more embarrassment in the young boy. After a few seconds, he managed to procure several tickets, and shoved all of them at Taehyung’s hand at once before bolting past him and onto the ride. “You only needed to give me one!” He yelled aimlessly as the boy disappeared. Or, four times Jungkook tried to ask out the cute boy at the fair, and the one time he did.

pick me up, buttercup by vppa - AU where your soulmate’s first words to you will be tattooed on your wrist when you meet. Which freakin sucks, because Jungkook’s forearm will now forever read “Hey baby, if you were a booger, I’d pick you first.” What the fuck, universe.

Freak like you by taleofatub - Taehyung changes his hair colour like he changes clothes. He won’t leave Jungkook alone and Jungkook thinks his new neighbour’s weird as fuck.

i’ll be a man (of you, you, you, babe) by monsterplaza (aesthesiae) - Dates are cool. Dates with straight-laced family friends arranged by your mother are not. Thank goodness Jeon Jeongguk has his trusty best friend Kim Taehyung close by to bail him out of any dire situations.

Of Photographs and Heated Stares by taekookmusings - Jimin convinces Jungkook to pose nude for a senior’s photography project.

11:58:30 by Batman - Reviewing the entirety of your rocket science course in twelve hours is not actually rocket science, but falling in love might just be. Alternatively, boy meets boy at the longest party of the year.

Alabama Corps of Cadets Call to Battle

University of Alabama-Tuscaloosa, April 3rd, 1865

It was the twilight of the Confederacy in the spring of 1865. Federal armies were tramping throughout the southern states, burning, pillaging, and destroying anything of value, with little resistance from the remnants of the Confederate army. In late March of 1865 Union General John T. Croxton was given orders to take his cavalry force of 1500 troopers to Tuscaloosa and “destroy the bridge, factories, mills, university, and whatever else may be of benefit to the rebel cause.” Three hundred young men from the Alabama Corps of Cadets ranging in ages from 15 to 20 years old were all that stood before the invading force.

At the start of the war the University of Alabama converted to a military form of governance, with it’s primary duty to produce new officers for the Confederate Army. The university soon became the “West Point of the South,” supplying Confederate armies with 7 generals, 25 colonels, 14 lieutenant colonels, 21 majors, 125 captains, 273 staff and other commissioned officers and 294 private soldiers.

Near midnight, as lightning illuminated the stormy skies of April 3rd, the Commandant of the Corps of Cadets James T. Murfee called to battle his remaining 300 cadets with drummers at the guard house pounding out the “long roll”. Excited young cadets quickly gathered into their formations next to the guard house and Rotunda. The President of the University Landon Cabell Garland supervised the cadets on his white horse.

Once formed, the Corps of Cadets marched down University Boulevard and met the Federal Sixth Kentucky Cavalry just east of the intersection of University Boulevard and Greensboro Avenue. The Cadets formed a defensive line of battle in the street where a heavy exchange of fire ensued. But it was immediately clear that the Cadets were outmatched against the large Federal force. Bravely the Cadets held their ground until ordered to withdraw, going back to the University to gather supplies and leave Tuscaloosa heading south on the Huntsville Road. The night of April 3rd had been the Alabama Corps of Cadets last call to battle.

Just For a Second (Trixya) - Eve

AN: Hello! Eve here, taking a short break from Dress Up in You (the next chapter should be up before 2017) to write a smutty oneshot for NYE! This is based IRL and they’re both boys (mostly) but pronoun-wise, I went with male for Trixie and female for Katya cause that just feels right somehow. Drag names used because two Brians = too many Brians.

Summary: It’s New Years’ Eve, and Katya and Trixie are having a night in.

Warnings: Swearing and explicit sex, vague allusions to infidelity, vague mention of alcoholism
