The sauce train has reached the finale that is V Sunday on MM Valentine’s Week, the event hosted by @mysticmessimagines! WE MADE IT! OMGOSH I can go to bed now and sleep for a week XD Thank you so much for hosting this event. Originally I was only going to participate on the first day but then I thought, ‘Why not do all the days?? It would be good practice.” And it was. I felt myself improve a lot and I can now draw faster (a week ago something like this would take me a whole day but I even managed to do 3 crack posts, one of them being the infamous V chain lolol, as well as this V drawing) so I’m pretty proud of myself ^-^
Thank you everyone for liking, sharing and commenting in the tags about my art :3 It means a lot to me and I’m glad you enjoyed it. I have other stuff planned for drawing but first I’mma take a nice break with Baehee (on her route atm <3)
One of my favorite things about Mike and Eleven is that its realistic. Its not over-romantic and perfect. Its awkward. Super Awkward. He never knows what to say, and stutters his way through everything. Their kiss wasn’t perfect, it was probably the most awkward and 12 year old like kiss I’ve ever seen. Thats what makes it so adorable and innocent.
I love all of the “Humans are these weird Space Orcs” and “Earth is Space Australia” posts.
Now it got me thinking about how aliens would react to the number of people who do martial arts. Like, they’d get those who are in the military or police learning hand-to-hand combat, but what about those of us who train for fun? Plus, we have so many different types and styles of martial arts, so you could give a ridiculous variety of ability levels.
Alien: So your sister does the Human Fighting Style of Boxing?
Human: Yeah, and she got my brother into it. They do some MMA training too. They’re really good at getting people to the ground. My sister can get inside opponent’s guard pretty well and my brother has a longer reach for striking.
Alien: *cautiously* Do you do that in your combat training?
Human: Oh me? No. I do something we call Aikido. It’s more self-defensive than aggressive and it’s about using your opponent’s body and momentum against them. It’s physics really.
Alien: And you do this for fun?
Human: Yep. Also, we like talking to the military people we know and comparing notes on what’s useful in different situations we might realistically find ourselves in. Gotta be practical, right?
Alien: Remind me never to pick a fight with a Human!
Human: Oh, don’t worry. Not all of us train in hand-to-hand combat and martial arts when we want to work out.
ok um i'm trash but um can i have a fic where like michael is really protective of jeremy (for whatever reason) and just everyone is gay and it's great
Ay, back at it again with the late replies to asks I should have done ages ago (IM SORRY). Hope this will suffice, thank you for the prompt!
The plan was for Jeremy to get out of hospital, ask out Christine and live a normal high school life as a normal high school teenager - now with a few more friends. What Jeremy wasn’t anticipating was Michael’s change in attitude when he got back.
Michael, his best friend for twelve years, had suddenly become very… attached to Jeremy. He hadn’t noticed at first, focusing more on his plan to ask out Christine or catching up on any work that The Squip had previously deemed ‘uncool’ or ‘useless’. But as the days went by Jeremy began to notice Michael’s presence more and more. Sure, it wasn’t uncommon for Michael to have his bad days and follow Jeremy around for the majority of the school day but by the end of the week Jeremy couldn’t think of one instance where Michael had left his side.
When Monday came, Jeremy found Michael waiting outside his house to walk to school. The two stood side by side as Michael hopped along the pavement with his headphones around his neck, looking around as if he was expecting someone to pop out behind the passing houses. As he began to calm down, Jeremy took a closer look at his best friend. He noticed that his eyes were slightly more droopy than normal, little bags had begun to form underneath them. His hair was ruffled and he was wearing the wrong shoes, as if he was in a hurry to leave the house. Despite this, Michael still wore his generic giddy smile on his face, the look which made Jeremy’s heart melt slightly on the inside.
At lunch time, Rich and Jake approached the two, asking if they wanted to join them at their table in the far corner of the cafeteria. There sat the rest of the group - Brooke, Chloe, Jenna and Christine - eagerly waving at the best friends. Before Jeremy could reply with some cheap excuse as to why he wasn’t feeling well all of a sudden, Michael jumped in between them, turning to Jeremy.
“Come on dude, lets go sit with them! It’ll- It’ll be fun,” he stammered out the last past, suddenly dragging his best friend across the hall before he had a chance to protest. Under his breath, Jeremy heard him mutter “no harm done yeah? Yeah…”
Jeremy, naive Jeremy, brushed off the encounter as Michael just acting up as he sometimes did. But a few days later Jeremy was walking down the hallway on the way to his next class when he heard Michael catch up to him, skidding to a stop once he reached his best friend.
“How was math?” He small talked, slurping the remains of his slushie.
“It was fine, I guess. I wish Mr David would ease up on the homework though, I’m starting to get-” before Jeremy could continue, he was stopped in his tracks by Michael. He turned to see a mixture of anger and fright on his face, a look that really didn’t suit him. Jeremy tried to follow his line of sight but was cut off by Christine shouting his name from down the hallway. He looked back and waved, but when he returned to his best friend’s gaze it was gone, replaced with what looked to be a sympathetic smile as he saw Christine.
“I’ll… uh- catch up with you later Jer,” he mumbled before setting off in the opposite direction without letting Jeremy say a word.
Jeremy tried to give Christine a decent conversation but it was clear he was distracted by something else. He kept turning to look down the hallway in which Michael had seen something, making him stop dead in his tracks. He couldn’t help but wonder what he had seen. Jeremy briefly heard Christine asking if he was alright, to which he replied some rehearsed nonsense about being tired from schoolwork while he continued to focus on the hallway.
It wasn’t until Friday afternoon that he discovered what Michael had been so frightened of.
Jeremy had just finished play rehearsal with the gang and was making his way through the school hallways to go home. Just as the doors came into sight, he spotted a group of - maybe two or three - boys hanging around the doorway, blocking the entrance. They seemed to be waiting for someone, so Jeremy naturally assumed they were one of the many friends of Jake or Chloe. However, as he began to approach, one of the boys spotted him coming and alerted the other two of his arrival. Confused, Jeremy stopped walking and spoke up;
“Um hi… could I get past please? You’re kind of blocking the door,” he stuttered, trying not to mess up his wording in front of the intimidating boys. But neither moved an inch. Instead, the main boy came forward, speaking slowly and articulating his words so precisely it sent a shiver down Jeremy’s spine.
“That was kind of the point mate,” he chuckled and the other two joined in. “We were just waiting for someone…”
“Oh…” said Jeremy, slowly shifting his feet. “W-who?”
Deep down, he already knew the answer.
Now, Jeremy had dealt with bullies before, being a loser and all. He was used to the unoriginal insults and the occasional shove. But these guys were clearly not messing around, going out of their way to wait for him after school and everything. Jeremy took a step backwards in fear.
“You’re the guy that possessed my brother yeah?” The main boy snarled. Jeremy’s face twitched for a second, taking another step back.
“He told me bout it. Said some dude in his drama rehearsal tried to take over the whole cast. Course, the guy doesn’t care now. He’s way too forgiving for his own good my brother,” the boy continued, slowly inching forwards. His friends had now joined his march a few feet behind him. “Fortunately for you, I’m nothing like the guy. I’m a solid believer that you deserve what’s coming to you buddy.”
Jeremy wasn’t entirely sure what to do. He couldn’t keep retreating forever, the gang would eventually catch up to him, and there was no way he was going to slip past these three boys. Caught up in his thinking, he stopped retreating. Jeremy realised his mistake too late as he felt his whole body smash up against a locker. His head smacked the metal plating behind him, causing an immediate headache to rush into his head. He blinked and locked eyes with the bully.
“Or maybe, I just want an excuse to beat up a nerd,” he smirked, lifting his fist to the air. His two friends stood back, watching the whole ordeal go down without interfering. Jeremy shut his eyes closed and tensed up, preparing himself for a blow to the face at any moment.
Instead, he felt his body suddenly drop the ground as a loud grunt came from the boy. Confused, he peeled his eyes open to see the previously menacing boy sprawled across the floor with a bloody nose. His two friends had stepped back in fear at the cause of the punch. The guy responsible stepped forward and glared at the two, signalling - or warning - for them to leave. They did as instructed, picking up the brother and rushing out the door without saying a word.
Jeremy’s head had began to ease up just enough for him to start to process what had just happened when his arm was flown over a shoulder and he was heaved up onto his feat. The familiar smell of weed and slushie suddenly hit him and he knew exactly who had come to him rescue.
“Michael?” He spat out, turning to face the boy. Now that he was fully standing on his own, he could focus on the boy. Michael’s face was covered in sweat. His eyes glimmered with a hint of fear and relief at the sight of his best friend and a large bruise had begun to form on his knuckle from where he had punched the bully.
“Michael,” he said again, this time more definite. It was at that point where Michael’s intimidating persona faded as his eyes began to well up with tears. He flung himself onto Jeremy and dug his head in his neck as he began to sob.
“I’m- I’m sorry I just…” he muttered through his tears, “I heard them… when you came back to school- they were talking about what they were going to do to you- and I just… I just wanted to make sure that you were ok-”
“Thank you Michael,” was all Jeremy could muster before his eyes too began to fill up with tears. The boys sat there, in the school hallway, for about ten minutes silently crying until Jeremy sat up and pulled Michael up with him as they slowly made their way out of the building.
“Morning!” Jeremy greeted his friends by the school entrance. By his side was Michael with his bandaged knuckle and huge smile on his face.
“Morning bro!” Replied Jake. The group shared a quick conversation before entering the school and as they walked down the hallway Michael stood proudly by Jeremy’s side.
“Oh my gosh Michael,” exclaimed Christine as she noticed the white bandages across his hand, “what happened? Are you hurt?”
“Don’t worry Chris,” replied Jeremy, putting a hand on his best friend’s shoulder, “he’s got it under control.”
Just up ahead, a brief conversation between Rich and Jake could be heard.
“Now that I think about it, my bro was acting a little strange last night. He came home with a broken nose and started ranting on about this dude in a hoodie.”
“No way!” Rich cried, “your bro got beat up by some kid in a jacket?”
“Yeah yeash,” replied Jake who appeared to be pondering the thought. “He said someone about him being utterly terrifying, looming over him and protecting his lanky best-”
Slowly, the two boys locked eyes and turned to find Michael’s hand bruised after Christine insisted on changing the bandage. He looked up to see the boys staring and smirked. Turning to Jeremy, he flew an arm around his shoulder and paraded forward, passing the two as he went. Turning round, Michael brought his damaged hand up to his eyes and returned the glare, signalling NOT to touch his best friend in case they also wanted a piece of what he could do.
Deep down, Michael just wanted his hand to heal quicker. He couldn’t press the buttons on the controller properly with a bruised knuckle, but the image of being a type of bodyguard for Jeremy - it made it all worthwhile.
Like, I’m not particularily pretty, I want to have a sophisticated and cool fashion style but I end up dressing pretty blandly because I can’t accessorise for shit and every time I try on clothes that look cool they just look out of place on me.
I know stuff but I feel like there are always people know more about that subjects I’m passionate about that I do (namely video games, animes and stuff, I feel pretty illegitimate) or stuff that I want to know about but don’t really have the time or money to do so, like … makeup ? D&D ? Musicals and plays ?
Heck, even if I write stuff for my blog (and I’m pretty proud of whate I write) I always find someone whose better, more analytical, smarter in what they say, more documented, EVERYTHING.
I just feel mediocre most of the time, and I guess there’s nothing wrong with that, but it gets me down really fast.
Author’s Note: thank you everyone who has been so nice and encouraging to me as a writer. I love writing and I love Ethan and all of you have made this this a fun little safe haven for me. I can’t say thank you enough. Drop me a message or an ask. I love talking with you! Now here’s a little Coachella Ethan, kinda, sorta.
“Remember when Ethan gave you fake flowers for Easter?” Cameron spoke dryly, knowing fully well Ethan was only a few feet behind her, leaning against the doorframe and nibbling on a plate of pancakes. You were sitting in front of a mirror curling your hair.
You looked at her through the reflection, a smile stretching at your lips. You went to speak, but were cut off by your obnoxious boyfriend who still spoke with his mouth full no matter how many times you told him it was rude and unbecoming of him.
That new Shifted update gave me all the Da Jamie feels. I would love to see how Jamie acts during wee William's birth since Bree's was so hard. :)
Hello Gotham! I’m not sure if you’re still taking prompts for Shifted
but here is mine just in case!!! I would love to read anything to do
with Fergus, I think he’s such a vital part of Jamie and Claire family
in s2 and I wonder what’s his “role” in your amazing story. Thank you!
For the next few weeks I’ll be writing one-shots in the Shifted
universe, filling in the blanks that we don’t see in the main story,
before we resume the main action with Part 7 - The Visitor.
If there is a particular scene you’d like to see, send me an ask and I’ll see what I can do!
In Shifted, the premise is simple - what if Claire had gotten pregnant with
Brianna a month or two earlier in the story, and she and Jamie had
re-evaluated their priorities and decided that the cause was lost, and
they were able to slip away from the army and quietly return to
Jamie wiped his sweaty brow on his damp shirtsleeve,
frowning at the furrows neatly dug along about half of the field.
“Hold up!” he yelled to Murtagh, who was industriously
hacking at the earth with his spade. His godfather paused, squinting in the
rare spring sunshine, chest heaving with exertion.
“Ian!” Jamie called to his brother-in-law, who couldn’t
participate in the digging but supervised from the edge of the field. “Ye’re
sure we can space the potatos so closely together? We didna do that the last
time – ”
“Yes, we can.” Ian shifted a bit as the peg of his wooden
leg caught in a patch of softer soil. “I was reading Sir Walter’s book again
last night, and it didna say anything about whether three inches instead of
four wouldna be good for the plants.”
“One of the MacNabs was telling me the other day that
they’d tried the three inches up at their croft,” Murtagh interjected, nudging
Jamie with the handle of his spade. “And it didna seem to have an ill effect on
Ian hobbled closer to Jamie and Murtagh.
“Aye, but the soil is a bit boggier over at those crofts,”
Jamie reasoned. “It can hold more moisture than ours can. I just want to make
sure if we’re going through all the effort, we’ll still get as much as we can.”
“But if we dig three inches apart, we can add an extra
row for the whole field. That’s worth the effort, no?”
Jamie pursed his lips, remembering how he and Ian had
stayed up late the night before drawing out a map of the field and calculating
exactly how to dig the furrows. The winter barley crop had been poor – so they
needed to grow more food. And potatos were the easiest solution.
He’d finally slipped into bed close to midnight – Claire had
gone upstairs long before, the weight of the bairn in her belly making her much
more tired these days. She knew her time was coming, but had assured him just
this morning that it would be a few weeks yet.
And that was why Jamie was being so conservative about
the potatos. Claire had to eat. Brianna had to eat. Jenny and her army of
bairns had to eat. And Murtagh, and Fergus, and the tenants.
So much responsibility – and times were still lean, seven
years after Culloden. Things had been worse, to be sure – but they were a long
way from being better.
He’d risen early – Claire had slept restlessly, it was so
difficult for her to find a position that would remain comfortable. She dozed
off right after dawn, so he had quietly untangled her from his arms, kissed the
reassuring roundness of her belly, whispered “I love you,” and prepared for the
Ian pursed his lips. “How about we try it half wi’ the
three inches and half wi’ the four? That way we can still have the extra row – ”
Jamie whirled to see seventeen-year-old Fergus cresting
“Papa! Quick! You must come!”
“Soldiers?” Murtagh raised his spade, ready.
Fergus stopped in his tracks – right at the edge of the
field – and bent over, panting.
“No – no. Not that. It’s – Maman. La petite bairn – it is
Jamie dropped his rake and shot off, racing back to the
“Truly?” Ian hobbled across an untilled section of the
field. “Is the bairn on its way?”
Fergus straightened up, still winded. “Yes – yes. The
midwife just arrived. It is very, very quick this time. Tante Jenny thought she’d
have to deliver it on her own. I told her I could help – but no, she sent me to
Murtagh clapped a solid hand on Fergus’ shoulder – the lad
had grown to be taller than him, but he was still very slight of build. “That’s
verra brave of ye, lad. Now let’s get back – the tatties can wait, aye?”
Fergus had left the front door open – and Jamie almost
crashed into Mrs. Crook in the entryway.
“Upstairs,” was all she said.
Jamie bolted through the sitting room, taking the stairs
two at a time.
Six-year-old Brianna Fraser – banished from the upstairs to
a quiet corner of the sitting room – turned to her cousin Maggie.
“Why do ye think he’s so worrit? Everything will be fine.”
“Ye ken that Grannie Ellen died having a bairn?” Maggie focused
on changing her rag doll’s dress. “He’s probably worrit because of that.”
“I didna ken that,” Brianna replied softly. Then – “Do ye
think my Mam is going to die? I dinna think Da would let that happen.”
Brianna frowned, lay her doll down, and folded her
fingers in her lap. Trying not to think about what was happening upstairs.
Ten stairs – then the turn. Then another ten – then the
landing. Then six strides to their bedroom –
And Jamie almost ripped the door off its hinges.
His heart tore in two at the sight on the bed. Claire –
naked, legs bent at the knees, stomach heaving along with her shallow breaths, face
contorted in pain. Jenny and the midwife – the same sour-faced woman who had
delivered Brianna and all the Murray bairns – standing on either side of the
bed, alternately soothing and encouraging Claire.
Jenny looked over her shoulder – and he immediately saw
“Jamie’s here, Claire.” Her voice was a bit loud, almost
as if she were speaking to a child.
But Jamie was already at Claire’s side, enfolding her as
best as he could into his arms.
“Jamie?” Claire’s voice was weak – far away. Lost.
“Aye, Claire. I’m here.” He kicked off his boots and
settled against the headboard, cradling her back to his front. Just as he had
when she was delivering Brianna.
“When did it start?”
“Just about an hour ago.” Jenny gently kneaded the arch
of Claire’s foot. “Claire wasn’t feeling too well after breakfast – ”
“Those – bloody – fucking – onions did it,” Claire
panted. “Never should – have them with – breakfast…”
Then she curled against Jamie, body going rigid as
another pain rippled through her middle –
“Oh, God. I have to push,” she groaned.
The midwife pulled back Claire’s leg and reached down. “Aye
– ye’re open and ready, Claire. Push.”
It was awful – and there was a lot of blood – and Claire’s
blunt nails drew stinging pain where she clutched Jamie’s arms. But he didn’t
feel a thing – encouraging her, whispering to her, holding her as she drew from
somewhere deep inside herself to push and push and push.
All was forgotten when Claire’s body released the final
tension – and the midwife held up their blood-smeared, screaming, absolutely
“Born in the middle of the day – he’ll always have lunch
on his mind, poor lad.”
Claire held the baby’s head tighter in the crook of her
elbow. Jamie darted one hand to wrap the blanket tighter around the baby’s
impossibly tiny shoulders, gently touching the bitty chin and nose with the pad
of one finger.
“Born early, too – means he’ll always be waiting on other
people. Puir lad.”
“I can’t believe how easy that was, compared to the last
time.” Claire settled back a bit against Jamie, oblivious to Jenny and the
midwife sorting the soiled linens and tossing bloody water out the window.
“It didna look easy from *my* perspective,” he smiled, absolutely
hypnotized by his son’s sleeping face.
“And I was so worried, too. But Jamie, when my water
broke and you weren’t there – ”
“Hush. It doesna matter. Though Fergus told me he
volunteered to stay behind and help ye?”
“He told me he’d helped with a birth before – at the
brothel. I don’t even want to begin to imagine what that must have been like.”
“He’s a braw lad.” Jamie bent to kiss Claire’s shoulder. “We’re
lucky that our wee boy will have such a good brother to look up to.”
The baby stirred, but then settled.
“Is he our William, then?” Claire asked softly. They had
decided on the name as a tribute to Jamie’s beloved elder brother – but now
that the baby was actually here…
“Aye. No’ Willie – that was my brother. No’ Will – that’s
too English. William. A good, strong name.”
“Yes. Yes it is.”
Claire turned over her shoulder to face Jamie. “I do love
you, Jamie. Thank you.”
He smiled – heart full to bursting with love and joy and
“For what? I didna do any of the work.”
“For giving him to me. For being here with me. For – for this
He bridged the gap between them in a long, long kiss.
“I love you.”
He butted his nose with hers.
“Can you get Brianna?”
He smiled even wider, kissed her forehead, and sprang off
the bed and down the hall.
Not even a minute later, Brianna shyly poked her red
curls around the doorframe.
“Come here, love,” Claire gently encouraged. “Come meet
Then Jamie was there, guiding her around Jenny and the
midwife and toward the bed.
Brianna gingerly stepped to Claire’s side and peered down
at the swaddled bundle. The baby dreamed, quiet.
She furrowed her red brows and didn’t say anything for a
Jamie opened his mouth to speak, but at a firm look from
Claire thought twice about it.
So they waited. And waited –
“Hallo, wee William,” Brianna finally said, voice
impossibly soft. “I’m your big sister. I’ll take care of ye.”
Hanzo probably looks vaguely uncomfortable/guilty every time Genji hangs around him and makes brotherly gestures now bc he’s still riding the “oh my god i tried to kill my baby brother i cannot be forgiven for that” train that returned with a vengeance when Genji reappeared.
Hanzo has a lot of stuff to work through. Genji’s had 10(?) years to look back on the event and what happened and who he is now and come to terms with it and forgive. Hanzo was basically hit with a feels truck + paradigm shift when Genji reappeared into his life so he’s pro ba b ly reliving the consequences of what he did pretty hard all over again.
Anyways, I’m p sure Genji just aggressively wants his big brother to be his big brother again
My 5 year old brother and I were talking about cosplay and I asked him if he wanted me to make him a Steven shirt so he could dress up too. He replied with “but I want to dress up like Pearl because she’s my favourite and I have blue eyes like her”
MAGNIFICENT CENTURY MEME: [4/5] characters — Gevherhan Sultan
For the first time I wanted something for myself. I wanted to live in this world, for my branches to turn green, and for flowers to bloom. You didn’t allow it. Your anger has not only blinded your eyes, but also your heart. When did you lose your conscience and your justice, Murad? What did you do to my brother?
Request: I was wondering if you requests are open? It’s my birthday tomorrow and I was wondering if I could get dad! Ubbe fic? Like really fluffy ? Pls?
Happy belated birthday, nony!
Note: I’m not sure if this one is any good. It was kind of hard to write because I was struggling with a bad writers block. Plus, for some reason it was really hard for me to include Ivar in an imagine in which the reader is with Ubbe. I know, I’m a weirdo.
You were standing at the dock,
watching the ships grow bigger and bigger as they travelled down the fjord
towards the town. Your feelings were torn between happiness and anxiety. It had
been month since that army had left, and with them your husband. You were more
than happy to see them come back home but you also knew that not all of them
would be returning. Although you knew Ubbe was a skilled warrior and surely
could take care of himself you couldn’t help but worry, especially when he was
gone for so long. You had prayed to Odin and Tyr for his save return and hoped
that they had heard you. The dock was crowded with people, all of them hoping
for their loved ones to return to them but you knew that some of them would be
You felt a light tug on your dress
and looked down with a warm smile.
“Is father on one of these ships?”
“I’m sure he is, love.” You said and
ruffled your daughter’s hair. “It’s time for him to come home and meet your
brother.” You added, more speaking to yourself than to the three years old.
You carefully brought the little
bundle in your arms closer to your chest as you watched the first boats arrive
at the docks. The men didn’t waist much time and jumped to the dock,
immediately being surrounded by their lovers or families. You held your breath
and watched, your eyes searching every landing boat for a glimpse at your
husband. Your heart skipped a beat and you let out a relieved sigh when you
finally saw him. Ubbe was standing at the front of one of the approaching
boats, looking totally majestic with a white fur around his shoulders and his
cloak floating in the breeze. You felt a huge smile grow on your face. Now it wouldn’t
be long until you could finally wrap him in your arms again. A few minutes
later the boat had landed and Ubbe stepped onto the dock.
You leaned down to your daughter.
“Do you see who is here?”
You didn’t even get to end that
sentence before she took off running.
“Father!” The little girl shrieked
and Ubbe knelt down and opened his arms for her.
A genuine feeling of happiness
spread though you as you watched him pick up his daughter and spin her around.
“Where’s your mother? Have you not
brought her with you?”
The little girl giggled and pointed
in your direction and Ubbe’s eyes met yours. He smiled at you and a tingly
warmth spread through your body. He hurried over to you with long steps and
wrapped one arm around you, pulling you to his chest.
“I have missed you so much.” He
You looked up to meet his eyes
again. “You’ve been gone for much too long.”
“I know.” He said, setting your
daughter down so he could wrap both his arms around you.
When he pulled you closer to him you
put a hand to his chest, keeping him at distance. He gave you a confused look
and you smiled at him, revealing the little bundle you had hidden under your
cloak. His eyes grew wide.
“I think you should meet your son.”
You announced with a grin.
“I… I didn’t know…” He stuttered. “Oh
Y/N, I’m so sorry I wasn’t there.”
“Well, I didn’t know I was with
child when you left, so how could you?” You gave him a wink. “I told you that
you‘ve been gone for too long.”
“This is… I can’t… a son?” He still
wasn’t able to form a complete sentence.
He looked at you for a long moment
with glassy eyes before he pulled you into a tender kiss. You closed your eyes
and enjoyed the feeling of his lips on yours, which you had missed for such a
long time. When you broke the kiss, Ubbe’s hands travelled from your face down
your sides and around your waist, he pulled you to him again, careful this time
to leave enough room for your son. You rested your head against his shoulder
and breathed in his scent, feeling more happy than you had in a long long time.
“Let’s go home.” You said after a
while. “You must be tired. And I want to hear all about the raid.”
He smirked at you. “It was quite
boring without you.”
Then he picked up your daughter and
wrapped one arm around your shoulders as you walked towards your house.
Back home you made yourself
comfortable in front of the fireplace. You handed your babyboy over to Ubbe and
watched his eyes glow with pride as he held his son for the first time.
“Have you already given him a name?”
“His name is Sigurd.”
He looked at you, surprised at
first, but then he nodded approvingly. “Thank you.” He whispered.
“Father, can you tell us a story
about your journey?” Your daughter pleaded, looking up to her father with her
big shining eyes, you knew he could never resist.
You were almost as eager to hear
about what had happened during the raid as the little girl and leaned your head
against Ubbe’s shoulder as he started to speak. But you weren’t granted much
time alone with your little family. Not long after Ubbe had started to tell
about his adventures the door flew open and Hvitserk stepped in, followed by
“Here you are. We’ve been looking for
you. We heard you have a son?” You could hear the excitement in Hvitserk’s
Ubbe turned in his seat so that his
brothers could see the baby sleeping in his arms. Hvitserk rushed to his
brother’s side to get a better view on the newborn. So you went to greet Ivar
first. As you bend down to him he embraced you in a strong hug.
“Always good to see you, Y/N.” He
said. “I see you keep making gifts to my brother he doesn’t deserve.”
You just laughed. “It’s good to see
“Can I hold him?” You heard Hvitserk
ask behind you.
Ubbe turned to look at you and as
you gave him a small nod, he handed his son over to his brother. You went to
get some chairs for Hvitserk and Ivar and as you came back and placed them
around the fireplace, Hvitserk looked at you with big eyes, as if he had just
“Oh Y/N, sorry.” He said, hugging
you with one arm.
“Don’t worry, it’s fine. When it
comes to attention, babies always win.”
You poured everyone a horn of mead
and while the others were already settled around the fireplace.
“He has your eyes, brother.”
Hvitserk announced, holding out his finger for the baby to wrap his tiny hand
“And I was hoping for his sake that
he would turn out more like his mother.” Ivar teased and Ubbe grabbed a wooden
spoon from the table behind him and threw it at his brother.
Ivar ducked under the spoon. “Hvitserk,
you’ve had him long enough.” He decided. “Now give him to me.”
For a moment Hvitserk looked as if
he wanted to argue but then he handed the baby over to Ivar. You would have
sworn to see some concern flash through your husbands face but it was gone as
fast as it had appeared. Ivar eyed your son curiously and then looked up at
“What is his name?”
Your blood froze in your veins. You
hadn’t thought about that. How could you have been so stupid? You had meant it
well, choosing the name of your husband’s dead brother, but you hadn’t thought
about the trouble it might cause.
“His name is Sigurd.” Ubbe said in
your place, sounding completely calm while looking his younger brother in the
Ivar stared back at him and you
could see his jaw clench. You knew Ivar’s anger could release a thunderstorm
and you were ready to jump up and fetch your son from his arms at any second. Hvitserk
looked completely frozen as if by not moving at all he could somehow vanish. You
felt like the temperature in the room had just dropped several degrees and
couldn’t suppress a shiver. That moment little Sigurd started to wriggle in
Ivar’s arms, drawing his attention to him. You were surprised to see Ivar’s
tense features relaxe entirely as he tried to soothe his nephew and even more
when he succeeded and the baby peacefully drifted back to sleep.
“I think it’s better if you take him
back now.” Ivar said to you, seeming completely calm now.
The tension that had been building
in the room just moments ago had vanished faster than you could have ever
imagined and you could see Ubbe let out a relieved breath he seemingly had been
holding the entire time.
After that the conversation got more
pleasant, as the brothers started to tell you about the raid and about the
treasures they had brought home. Your daughter had fallen asleep in Ubbe’s lap
and he himself looked pretty tired as well.
As Ivar and Hvitserk left a couple of hours later, all you wanted to do was
curl up in bed with your husband and enjoy his warmth.
So many requests for fluffy family imagines! The next thing I’ll write will have to be bloody and violent, just for me to keep the balance.
Heyy! I love your fics❤ I thought about A prompt : Sana takes a punch during the fight, she is hurt, Elias and yousef reaction and also boy + balloon squad.
Hiii! Thank you so much for trusting me with your idea!!
I’m sorry for keeping you waiting but the week has only started and I’m already very busy.
I hope you like what I wrote, I focused mainly on Elias and Yousef’s reaction to be honest, hope you don’t mind.
I really really hope you like it and that I don’t disappoint you
(also, the hideous kiss between Noora and Yousef doesn’t exist here)
“Sana, Elias is in trouble”
She looked at Yousef in shock. What did that
mean? What happened to her brother? Flashbacks from the previous Friday when
they had to carry Elias to Noora’s because he was too drunk to even walk came
to her mind.
She heard Yousef saying something else but
honestly, she wasn’t paying attention. Her mind and her eyes were on the door,
she had to get to the door. She felt her feet moving, her arms pushing people
out of the way. She heard someone calling her name, probably Yousef telling her
to wait for him, but she couldn’t, it was her brother, she needed to know what
was going on.
When she got out of the club she had to take a
moment to process the scene in front of her eyes. Her brother and his friends
were fighting against her friends. Elias had his hand on Mahdi’s neck and
Mikael was pushing Jonas. Magnus, Adam and Mutta were trying to stop the fight
while Even and Isak were nowhere to be seen, not that she was really looking
for them in that moment. She was more focused on thinking how to stop the
fight. She decided to take the plunge and get in the middle of it.
“Elias! Elias stop!” she yelled while she tried to get
his brother away from Mahdi “Elias please stop!”
She kept pushing him but it was like he wasn’t
“Elias what are you doing? Stop!!” She grabbed his arms trying to make
him back off while Magnus did the same with Mahdi. “Elias st…”
She didn’t see it coming. One moment she was
yelling at her brother and the next she was bent forward, a hand covering her
sore mouth. She tried not to scream nor cry but the hit had been strong and she
could feel her fingers getting wet from the blood that was coming from her lip.
“Oh my god Sana, I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry. I
didn’t mean to, I was trying to stop them. Please Sana forgive, I’m sorry” she heard Magnus saying.
“Did you hit my sister?!” Elias yelled “What the fuck?”
She looked up in time to see her brother
launching himself to Magnus who tried to cover himself with his arms.
“Elias stop!” she yelled but he didn’t listen.
“Elias!” Yousef, who had just come out of the club
after having to push his way out of it, yelled.
Sana turned around to look at him and she could
see the exact moment when he noticed that she had been hurt. He widened his
eyes, his hands turned into fist and in less than one second he was next to her
having forgotten the fight at all.
“Sana! What happened to you?” he said panicking
“I’m fine, stop him!”she said wiping away the blood from
“Sana…” Yousef raised his hand as if he was about to
touch her wound
“Stop him” she almost begged making him stop.
Yousef nodded quickly and went to help the rest
of his friends. They were all trying to keep Elias away from Magnus. Finally it
was Yousef who got in between the two boys.
“Elias stop!” he yelled pushing his friend away. He turned
around to look at Magnus “are you okay?”
“Don’t ask him if he’s okay. He fucking hit
spat while being held back by Adam and Mutta
Again Yousef’s hands turned into fist and he
took a step forward to Magnus
“It was an accident, I was trying to stop the
fight and my elbow hit her. I’m sorry, I’m really sorry”
Yousef took one more step forward.
“Yousef”Sana called him.
He looked at her, again pain in his eyes when
he saw the blood still coming out of her lip. She shook her head no.
“Go” Yousef said closing his eyes
“Sana I’m really sorry, please, I didn’t mean
“I know Magnus, just go” she said trying to smile to him. Then
she looked at Isak, who was looking at her really worried, and realized he was
bleeding too “And take Isak to the emergency room”
“What? You’re not leaving!” Elias said
“Go” Yousef repeated.
The boys didn’t second think it, they turned
around a left as fast as they could. Once they were out of sight Adam and
Mutasim released Elias.
“Are you okay?” he said approaching his sister
“Am I okay? Are you Elias? What’s going on with
you? You’re not like this!”
“He hit you!”
“It was an accident. He wouldn’t have hit me if
you hadn’t been in a fight in the first place”
“Okay, calm down both of you” Yousef said stepping between them. “Sana
you’re bleeding, you should see a doctor”
“No you’re not!” Elias said
“Elias, why don’t you go for a walk and try
to calm down? You’re not helping here” Yousef said turning to him
“I’m not leaving my sister alone”
“I’ll stay with her. She’s nervous enough, please
go, calm down and then you come back”
“Elias, please” Sana said
“Elias, I’m fine. I just want you to calm down
because you’re going to have a heart attack. Please.”
“Fine, but I’ll be back, okay? Don’t go
anywhere. And Yousef do not leave her alone”
Elias looked at his sister one last time and
left with Mutta, Adam and Mikael.
“You’re still bleeding” Yousef said approaching Sana
“Wait here, I’m going to find something to
clean the wound and stop the bleeding”
“Yousef, I’m fine. You don’t have to do that”
“Sana, let me take care of you, okay?” he said looking into her eyes.
She looked back at him and nodded trying to
hide the smile that was trying to show up in her lips. He turned around and got
into the club coming out in not more than 5 minutes with a clean cloth and a
bottle of something that look like some kind of disinfectant.
“Let’s sit on that bench” Yousef said leading the way.
Sana followed him and sat down expecting him to
do the same. Instead of that he crouched in front of her so his eyes were at
her mouth’s level.
“May I?” he asked soaking the cloth with disinfectant.
“You really don’t have to” she whispered
“I want to, but only if you’re comfortable with
She thought for a few seconds and then nodded.
Yousef brought the cloth to Sana’s lip, gently wiping away the blood from the
wound. Sana focused on him, he looked so concentrated, his eyes never leaving
her lips as he pressed the cloth against them trying to stop the bleeding. Her mind
went back to his expression when he had realized she had gotten hurt, and with
that to the fight, her brother against her friends. The worst thing was that
she felt like it had been her fault. If she hadn’t invited them, no one would’ve
got hurt. She tried to contain the tears but she couldn’t help but sniffle a
little bit, catching Yousef’s attention.
“Hey, hey, hey. What’s wrong? Am I hurting you?” he asked worried
“No…it’s just…this is all my fault” she said embarrassed
He frowned and stood up to then sit by her side
on the bench.
“What are you talking about?”
“I invited you here knowing that Even was
coming. I thought…I thought maybe if you all talked…I’m sorry. If it weren’t
for me the fight wouldn’t have happened” she said looking at the floor
“Sana, listen to me” he said. “Look at me Sana”
She did as she was told and looked at him in
“Okay, listen to me very carefully. This is not
your fault. It’s nobody’s fault. The fight, it was all a misunderstanding.
Everything will be fine, okay?”
She bit her bottom lip and nodded.
“I want to hear you say it.”
“Okay, everything will be fine” she said rolling her eyes but
He smiled back at her but it faded when he
“You’re bleeding again. Let me help with that”
Once again he crouched in front of her and
pressed the cloth gently against her lips. This time he wasn’t looking at her
mouth but at her eyes just as she was doing.
Neither of them knew how much time they had
spent in the same position until they heard someone talking to them.
“Am I interrupting?”
Yousef looked at Elias who was standing in
front of them looking a lot calmer now and stood up.
“I was trying to stop the bleeding.” He said “I think you’ll be okay, as long
as you try to contain that beautiful smile of yours for a little bit until the
Sana’s eyebrows rose as much as it was humanly
possible. Yousef closed his eyes and bit his lip in embarrassment when he
realized what he had said. He could here Elias softly chuckling.
“I think I better go and leave you two alone.
You know where to find me if you need me” Yousef told Sana
“Yes. Thank you Yousef, for everything” she said
“No worries” he said smiling.
He nodded at Elias as a way to say goodbye and
turned around to leave.
“Beautiful smile, huh?” Elias teased his sister once his
“Shut up” she said rolling her eyes “You’re not allowed to make fun
of me, not after today”
“I’m sorry” he said sitting next to her “I’m
sorry for the way I acted, I know I scared you. It’s just…there’s some stuff
going on with me right now and sometimes I don’t deal with it the way I should”
“Elias, I’m here. You can talk to me. If
something is bothering you, you can tell me, I can help”
“You don’t have to worry about it, Sana”
“Believe me, I’m fine. Just, please forgive me”
“I do, you know I do. I don’t have any other
choice. You’re my brother”
“And I’ll apologize to Even and his friends too, I promise”
“Good” she nodded
“But hey, not everything was bad. Yousef and
you were giving each other hearteyes over there and he said you have a
he said smiling
“Yup, still not allowed to tease me” she said standing up and starting
her way back home.
Elias stood up and followed her, laughing as he
matched his steps to hers. There was a long way home ahead of them and he was planning
on spending it teasing his sister. And he hadn’t even started with Yousef. He
was rooting for those two so badly.
So this is it
I hope you’ve liked it
I wanted to say some things
1st I have nothing against Magnus, I picked him to be the one punching Sana (by accident) because I had to pick one
2nd I’m not trying to portray Elias as someone violent but I think that that would be his reaction if he saw Sana getting hurt. Also we know or at least I think that something is going on with Elias, something is bothering him and even though I didn’t want to get into it I felt like I needed to mention it
I really hope you’ve liked it!
I have 6 more prompts to write so as I said before I’m not taking prompts right now, not until I’m done with the ones I have to write ‘cause I want to dedicate them the time they deserve, I’m really sorry.
