Sugar Pt. 3 (Luke)



“I wrote the lyrics in Chicago. I was with my dad, and we were listening to the old music where they’d always say ‘sugar’ and ‘honey’ - stuff like that. I was like, ‘Why doesn’t anyone do that anymore?’ - Pete Wentz


“Smells delightful, sugar.”

The soulful scent of fresh herbs wafts through your kitchen, slices of potatoes marinating in a sizzling pan. Warm pieces of bread are sandwiched in their slots on the counter, the slow timer ticking its soft metronome. The early morning  earthly smell of coffee follow its course through a dilapidated kitchen window , its weary hinges rusty with age. You smile when you realise its none of these scents he’s referring to, his nose buried deep in the skin of your exposed neck.

“Luke…” You warn, feeling his mouth leave wet kisses in a string to your collarbone, the soft press of his hands lifting up his knee-length shirt you’d grown so accustomed to wearing in bed.

Luke merely hums in response, licking his way back up to your waiting mouth, your head tilted at an odd angle to meet his eager lips.

“Luke…” You warn again as his tongue pushes past and bumps sloppily with your own, his sporadic moans as sweet and filling as spoonfuls of honey. His hands inch higher this time, nimble fingers prancing excitedly along the lace of your underwear, your thighs pricked with bumps from the cold feel of his palms. “Isabelle is bound to walk in.”

“Nonsense.” He purrs, slipping a finger inside and running it teasingly over the length of your folds. His voice is nothing but rushes of air, silent whispers of lust against your skin. “No offence sweetheart, but based from what I’m feeling, I don’t think you seem to care.”

about julian2′s suspension/thoughts

 Okay, first off, I’m not even in the community anymore. I’m sick of this stupid drama involving teenagers playing a children’s game. I’m not fond of the fact that they profit off of their videos/streams either. Not to be harsh, but I couldn’t care less about any conflict in the game, but it has come to my attention that Julian, or Julian2, was suspended for a… foolish reason. 

If you’re not aware of what’s happening, Julian simply made a video about topiary in the game looking like they were mating. 

Because he made this video, he was suspended two weeks later with zero explanation of when he was able to return, removed from Animal Jam’s banner on their official YouTube channel, and forced out of the AJ Youtuber group chat. 

My friend Bella direct messaged Animal Jam HQ about the issue. This is what they said: 

“While we do have some teenage Jammers, the vast majority of our audience is under 13. It is that demographic that we have a duty to protect, and we cannot feature a Jambassador who posts a sexually explicit den scene, even if his intentions were innocent.” 

They do have a point— Julian did upload a video referencing sex and is a bannable offense. But according to him, it was only a clip, yet he was practically forced out of the community. Says Julian, “I refuse to be treated as an asset to be disposed of at any moment which I don’t fall perfectly in line with the company’s agenda.” 

(Also, animals mating is completely normal. It’s how they reproduce. I don’t know why people flip their shit over this.) 

Do you agree? Honestly, it’s tragic that a multi-national company uses its power to practically crush a child’s dream based on a childish act. He apologized, yet he was publicly removed from Animal Jam’s banner and debarred from a group he said that he enjoyed working with. Are they really teaching him a lesson by trying to get rid of everything he’s worked for? It seems like they’re crushing his faith instead. 

What do you guys think?

Colourism in South and South-East Asia

By Radha Wahyuwidayat

The first time I visited my family in Indonesia, I was 13, and I was told by an uncle that my skin was considered ‘traditional’. To clarify, this was meant as an insult. In my family’s house, whitening products sat tellingly on nearly every surface, and I struggled to find products that did not contain chemical-filled, carcinogenic bleach.

Once when I went into a store looking for moisturiser (“without whitening”, I stressed), the woman behind the counter proceeded to laugh at me. More pronounced than the amusement in her voice was the genuine confusion in her eyes: my request made no sense. The idea that I would actively choose not to whiten my skin was incomprehensible.

Whitening products constitute a multi-million dollar industry in Asian countries. Colourism, or social and economic discrimination based on skin tone, is entrenched in cultures across South and South-East Asia, with products to match.  Colourism differs from racism in that it can fester among people of the same racial group, against those of certain ethnicities and castes. The woman who laughed at me from across the counter no doubt learnt from a young age that light skinned women married more easily, had better job prospects and generally fared better in society. Like my uncle, she was conditioned to view my skin as ugly. Like my female relatives, the social and economic burdens of dark skin led her to seek refuge in a tub of noxious bleaching cream.

Hey so, uh, fuck off with shaming that old woman. It's a FACT that we ALL know veterinary care is EXPENSIVE, and this is a harsh economic climate. She was literally trying her best to help her pet, because she knew veterinary care was expensive and she most likely lived on a fixed budget. How about you either: 1. Lower the cost of your services, or 2. Aggressively advertise how cheap it is to use preventative pet care. This is a no-brainer. You kinda fucking suck for shaming her.

I assume you’re talking about this post, you eloquent individual:

I don’t believe I shamed that woman. I felt nothing but the deepest sympathy and rage on her behalf.

As most other readers noted, I was trying to shame the internet advice givers who never see the consequences of their actions. It was they that told her that vets are evil and expensive, that she should buy some natural product instead, and are in my opinion responsible for the preventable death of that cat.

I suggest you read it again. And if you are the sort of person who likes to give unqualified veterinary advice, especially the kind that recommend people DON’T seek veterinary attention, then have a good hard look at yourself before stepping on a lego. It’s you I was trying to shame.

A $6 to $12 treatment would have saved that cat. She spent more on essential oils and garlic to do nothing.

She came to us when it was too late because of fear mongers telling her how evil and expensive we would be. If she’d come earlier, we would even have given the tablet for her (she had a weak right arm after surgery). She was trying, but the folks on the internet got it severely wrong, and will never see the consequence of their bad advice.

We are a small business and our costs are as low as we can go. You know who can go lower? Bulk buying multi-location chains like pet stores. We have no advertising budget, but they do. Those pet stores and pharmaceutical companies do advertise their products, but will never change the mind of people like you.

Which is why I suspect you’ve tried to shift the blame. That’s why you’ve had an interpretation that nobody else had, and seem to think it’s my fault for not aggressively advertising to fix this perception, when multi-national pharmaceutical companies haven’t even achieved that.

Do you know how expensive it is to run advertising?

Do you know what’s not expensive? Blogging on tumblr.

The marketing industry at and strapping within this specific brilliance is absolutely reorganized and upgraded headed for fit the needs and demands about public at this time.

First class honours from a shit uni. And it's not just the department ranking that's important, the ranking of the uni itself matters an awful lot, especially when it comes to graduate employment. I got all As at A level (not that hard when compared to the IB), I'm currently at one of the country's best unis and not even half way through my degree, I'm being sponsored by GSK, with whom I'm guaranteed a job once I graduate. Work hard, get the grades, go to a good uni, make something of yourself

Oh well, when I go into work tomorrow morning at the multi-national and globally accredited company that chose to offer me a graduate job I’ll be sure to let them know they made the wrong decision because an anonymous person said so.

You and Jin had agreed to go on a date to your favourite restaurant. You hadn’t been out in ages and thought would be a chance for him to get out and do something instead of him always cooking or watching TV.

Your food finally arrived. Spaghetti and Meatballs, with a side of Garlic bread. And his Steak and Chips. He took one look at the food and you could see his skin pale. “Are you okay babe?” you questioned him. His face becoming paler than you’ve ever seen it.

“I…I’m fffine” he reached to grab your outstretched hand, he got just past his glass of wine, when he hissed and brought his hand back, clutching it to his chest. He gave you a small smile. You took in his features. His pointy fangs, his long nails, his pale complexion. Within an instant you realized you weren’t dating a human, you were dating a vampire. It made you happy, knowing that he was unique and knowing he’s going to rely on you more than he hoped.

“Come on; let’s go home, we can have food there” standing up and grabbing his hand.

“What about our date?” he questioned with his cute puppy face.

“I have priorities to sort out, dates can come later” you winked. Dragging him along, paying for your uneaten meal and got into your car to go home.


Today was yours and Suga’s 6 month anniversary. You had decided to go to his apartment and watch movies and cuddle all day. When you arrived at his apartment, you couldn’t hear the blaring of his remixes like usual. You knocked on his apartment door. No answer. You carried on knocking for over five minutes so you decided to use the spare key.

Once you opened the door, you took your shoes off and headed to the living room. Once inside, you caught a glimpse of a figure under the coffee table. You crouched down and peered underneath it. There was your boyfriend huddled in a ball.

“What you doing under there?”


“I can see that… from what though?”

“The sun”

“Are you a vampire or something?” you laugh uncontrollably.


“You’re not” Regaining your composure.

“I might be…”

“God dammit Yoongi, why didn’t you tell me sooner, was going to book theme park tickets for your birthday?”

“Sorry…” you closed all the curtains and he got out from under the table.

“Why didn’t you shut the curtains babo?” you gave him a tight, brushing some of burnt pieces of clothing off him.

“I was tired and I thought I would have been up earlier to close them”

“You should have phoned, I would have been over earlier and I bet you’re hungry. I’ll go and make us some food.”


You were one of Hoseok’s secretary’s at the multi-national company. For the past few nights, you noticed him becoming paler and weaker. He looked as if he was dieting. But you didn’t understand why he’d diet. He was slim enough anyway. You knocked his door and entered. He had his head on the desk and was shaking uncontrollably. You rushed near his side. “You need to stop this diet Hobi” you were the only one he allowed to call him that. “You’re getting more ill and you’ll end up missing the meeting in Japan”

“H-How did you k-know I was o-on a diet? I made sure no one knew?”

“I know you better than you think! Tell me what you’re cutting out. I’ll then order some food in for you?”

“Blood” he whispered

“Did you just say blood?” He hummed his response. “Drink mine” you stuck your arm out to him. He shook his head. “Just drink it! You’re going to become worse and I’ve had my blood drunk by a vampire before, it won’t affect me.” He hesitated he got his mouth in line with forearm. He saw very faint fang marks.

“Keep your eyes open, don’t close them. If you become tired and faint, stop me. It may hurt a bit.” With that he stuck his fangs in and began to drink. There was slight pain but nothing you weren’t used to. You kept your eyes open like he said and after forty seconds you started to become tired. You nudged his shoulder. He looked up and stopped. You fell immediately against him. He helped you lay down.

“You better get me a souvenir from Japan now” he laughed and you fell asleep.

Rap Monster:

Your best friend had invited you to the studio, he was stuck writing a song and had no inspiration. He always called you in situations like these. Once you arrived his manger brought you up, taking the food you brought for them away and into the other room where the others are. You creeped into the studio.  You put your hands over his eyes, “Guess who?” He shot up from his seat and brought you into his embrace.

“Thank god you’re here, this is driving me insane”

“No wonder you can’t think, you’re drinking wine, can I have a sip, and I’m dying from walking here” before he could even stop you, you brought your lips to the glass and drunk a bit and spat it right back out. “This isn’t wine, it’s too thick. WHY DID YOU MAKE ME DRINK BLOOD?”

“Shh… keep your voice down. I was going to stop you but you bet me to it by drinking it.”

“Well thank you Mr Vampire, I have blood on my new converse, looks like you’re going to have to buy me a new pair” you winked at him, turning around walking over to the acoustic guitar you always played. “By the way, I always knew what you were, this is just conformation, don’t worry I’ll keep your secret”.

“Hey, you gotta tell me who you like now that I’ve let one of my secrets slip”

“Nope, not my problem you’re not clever enough to hide it”


You and Jimin were project partners on a field trip. Your lectures weren’t too bothered when you went out or where to. Being the night owls you and Jimin were, you decided to get your project done at night.

You were out in town, laughing with Jimin whilst eating food he brought. It started to get lighter out, signifying to go back to the hotel. Jimin started walking faster, leaving you behind. “Jimin wait, you’re walking too fast for me to catch up and I don’t know my way back?”

“Come on” he takes a hold of your wrist and drags you along. You started to smell something burning. You looked up and Jimin’s clothes had burnt into hole and his skin was becoming red. You decided to take a risk and pull Jimin into the shade. “Hey were going to be late what are you doing!” you ignored is protests. Getting the water from your bag along with tissues and dabbing it on to his skin. He hissed. “You’re one of them aren’t you? That’s why you wanted to pair with me, knowing full well I don’t sleep at night?”

“Y/N I di…”

“You should have told me. I thought we were friends. I would have kept an eye on you more. Here have my jacket. Cover you head, we’ll get to the hotel. Don’t worry” You took off your jacket and handed it to him.

“Thank you, and I’m sorry, I thought you would have avoided me” he gave you a hug. With that you left for the hotel.


You and Taehyung were childhood sweethearts. Joined at the hip since you were in nursery. So when he asked you to be his girlfriend you instantly agreed. He’d been acting weird lately and he hadn’t been going to school. You were starting to worry about him and asked to meet. He agreed and said to meet him at 10pm and that you could stop at his for the night.

10pm came and you were waiting for your boyfriend to arrive. “Sorry I’m late Y/N, was getting the stuff down from the loft so you had stuff to sleep with. How’s my baby girl?” he stated whilst cuddling you.

“I’m fine, missed you loads, but are you okay? You’re really cold”

“I’m… ACHOO” he sneezed and suddenly he was gone out of your arms and replaced with a hovering bat. “God dammit I thought I had this under control” you heard the bat speak. You realised instantly it was Taehyung.

“Is there something you’re forgetting to tell me Tae?”  I asked earning a sigh from his bat form.

“I’m a Vampire Y/N, never knew until the other day when I turned into this and earnt a squeal of excitement off my mother. That’s why I’ve been off, trying to get this under control. You’re not going to leave me are you?” Tae asked sitting on your shoulder rubbing his head against your cheek.

“Of course not babo, I love you too much. Now let’s get home so your mom can help you”


Jungkook, your annoying but sweet boyfriend, decided to take up potion making. You haven’t got a clue why, just another thing for him to excel in you guess. But you left him be and enjoy the potions he makes. Them being successful of course.

Today he decided he wanted to make a potion to find out if his band mates were any sort of creature. He had uncertainties about his leader being a vampire, and he wanted to find out. He brewed two cauldrons, just in case he ran out or needed it in the future. You sat in your room, reading a book, you couldn’t be bothered for potion making today so he left you be. He decided to try it out before he gave it them. He had one sip of the contents. He never tasted the juice but instead, heard a crashing of a glass and noticed he was hovering in mid-air. He panicked and flew to your bedroom; you left your door open luckily. He flew in and landed on your shoulder. You looked down and sighed. You thought you got rid of all the bats from this place.

“Kookie, I don’t think we got rid of all the bats” you shouted out for him. The bat rubbed its self on you. You though this maybe were your boyfriend. “Is that you babe?” the head of the bat shook a yes. You sighed, relieved that your heart was right. He was a vampire; he just never noticed the signs, but you being one as well made it more fun. You turned into your bat form “I’ll race you the potions room, last one there have to tidy the stuff up”. And with that you flew away.
