Aries: She was the epitome of a free spirit. Her blunt and aggressive personality wore on me at times, but she was a genuine person who struggled in her mind more than she let show. She could kick anyone’s ass, and she knew it.
Taurus: The first guy I hooked up with in college that was actually good. Short with broad shoulders, he was intimidating in public, but a vulnerable romantic in private. He was hard to connect with, but he continued to pop up here and there. I think he’s a newscaster now.
Gemini: My favorite teacher of all time. Junior English and Journalism, which I had back to back. She taught me the importance of writing through the blocks. We’re now good friends years later. She told me I changed her life as a student. She inspires me to this day.
Cancer: She’s obsessed with history, the moon, and nature. I met her on the first day of high school and we’ve been friends ever since. A Leslie Knope type. I consider her my family. A giant nerd with a lot of love to give. Crazy hair and wears her heart on her sleeve. She likes to dance on the roof with her cat.
Leo: He married one of my best friends, a redneck with a giant heart. He’s a ‘straight’ white male redneck from Virginia who loves drag race, admits everyone’s a little gay, and would literally do anything for his wife. He can fix anything, or will drive everyone crazy trying. One of the shyest guys I know at first.
Virgo: My momma. I’m biased, but everyone agree she’s probably the most selfless hard working person I know. Shes prone to disappear without warning, but she deserves it after spending every day helping people. She’d be happy living in a shack in the mountains as long as she could see her loved ones.
Libra: My first best friend, we spent every weekend together playing pretend and video games. He encouraged me to be myself and to do what I love. He was always taller than me, and had a new girlfriend every few months.
Scorpio: I met her my first night working at forever21. She was genuinely the most beautiful woman I’d ever met, and still is. Me and her would be stationed by the front doors to intimidate shoplifters with our Scorpio glare. She went on to be a fitness guru in California living the most aesthetic ass life ever.
Sagittarius: This is the bitch you want on your side in an argument. If Daria was done by Disney, she’d be it. Art ho and owns it. She’s an underrated fashion icon and scrapbooking addict. A walking contradiction, and I can relate to that. Just wants to hold tiny animals and talk shit about your enemies while watching YouTube poop.
Capricorn: One of my dearest friends who moved away. Prone to bad choices, she was born a rebel. She can pull of any look, and probably has. Most woke friend in the group. Covered in freckles. She has pet rabbits she treats better than herself and most people. Extremely difficult to read sometimes.
Aquarius: We go way back, and he is the wildest craziest fucker I’ve ever known. From sexual escapades, possibly not legal ventures, and his encyclopedia-like knowledge of film and music, he’s an enigma unlike any other being on earth. Tall and lanky with a perpetual baby face. Don’t pick up his phone call if you don’t have at least half an hour to lose.
Pisces: The best sex I’ve ever had, and one of the dreamiest souls ever. He keeps a lot to himself, but randomly his emotions and thoughts would pour out at 3am. He has a beautiful voice, and is really well liked. Works well with kids too! The ideal boyfriend on paper, but we both agreed that’s not in our cards. I was lying, but I don’t think he was. Hates social media, but loves social gatherings.

Mom's boyfriend Brent:
Ahh, not too fond of the male gender huh?
Relax kid, I'm not here to judge like a homophobic asshole. However, I'm probably a horrible dad since I placed bets on whether my daughter had a girlfriend or not. When she came out I told her about it, but boy was her reaction priceless! Totally worth it.
We're okay with this, but I don't need your younger siblings and cousins to be watching these videos just yet. There's no doubt that they're constantly curious and will click on anything that piques their interests.
But the gay side of YouTube is the best side of YouTube. Tyler Oakley is the best person ever! So is Troye, Connor, Joey, and everyone else.
Stevie & Ally are way too cute! Also the Gay Women Channel are hilarious!
In my defense, I didn't tell them about these people or encourage them whatsoever to watch them.
*Sighs and shakes head*
A lot of Anna Kendrick and Brittany Snow videos are popping up. I will never be able to watch those Pitch Perfect movies ever again without my Bechloe goggles on.
I like you.
If you like me now, you'll love me soon enough. Your mom told me that you're obsessed with that lesbian vampire web series. Well since she says she doesn't have the time to watch it. How about we binge watch it right now?
You my friend, are going to regret this.
I sat down and watched all of Faking It for my daughter's sake. I'm sure I can handle 72 episodes that are less than 6 minutes long.
Well actually 84 episodes because there's season 1, 2, and 0.
What does this fandom do with their lives?
Don't ask that question or else I'll be dragging you down this garbage chute with me.
Sin. That's all that fandom ever does.
“None of you are listening!” Kara yelled at the assembled women trying to save the world. “You know what? If you don’t need my ideas, you’re welcome to go fight the Daxamites by yourself.” She zipped across the room fast enough to blur, almost tearing the door to the fire exit off its hinges in her temper.
Alex moved to follow, but Cat waved her off.
“Agent Scully, keep an eye on Norma Bates here,” Cat nodded towards Lillian. “Supergirl and I are due for a catchup.” Her heels clicked across the floor as she followed in Kara’s wake. Those would have to be changed out for flats if she really would be expected to venture out in the field with them. That suggestion had been the reason for Kara’s outburst, or at least the last straw across her unbreakable back.
“Go away, Alex,” Kara grumbled, landing blows on a cleaner than average dumpster.
“Last I checked your sister wasn’t wearing Gianvitto Rossi heels. Need that superhearing checked?”
“I’m not going to allow it, so don’t start with me, Cat.”
“Allow?” Cat stepped in closer, wrinkling her nose at the mess in the alley. She made exceptions for Kara all the time, but really. “That chucklehead from Dixon has really done a number on you, if you think a grown woman has to be allowed to do any damn thing she wants. I’ll be a decoy if I’m needed, Kara.”
Aries: She was the epitome of a free spirit. Her blunt and aggressive personality wore on me at times, but she was a genuine person who struggled in her mind more than she let show. She could kick anyone’s ass, and she knew it.
Taurus: The first guy I hooked up with in college that was actually good. Short with broad shoulders, he was intimidating in public, but a vulnerable romantic in private. He was hard to connect with, but he continued to pop up here and there. I think he’s a newscaster now.
I would give the shirt off my back just to know how you’d look in it.

toast and talking to her friend Marlene when they come traipsing into the Great
Hall like a scene from a Muggle film. Judging by the dark circles under all of
their eyes, none of them got any sleep last night. It doesn’t make them any

handsome face, has always been one of the most beautiful people she has ever
seen; even when they were eleven and weren’t exactly on the best terms there was no denying his ethereal beauty. Remus, all rugged and scarred and
managing to look somehow both seventeen and eighty at the same time – it’s that
haunted look in his eyes, she thinks – comes alive with the grin that his
friends bring to his face. Peter, who has always been nothing but eager smiles
and quick, witty one-liners and blue eyes in a boyishly charming face, is
shorter and far less impressive to look at than his friends, but manages to fit
in seamlessly all the same. Finally, there’s James Potter, the tallest of the
bunch, arguably less handsome than Sirius but still with his fair share of
admirers thanks to the easy grin, the effortless humor, the contagious
laughter, the eager, open, friendliness that he exudes, the perpetually messy
hair and deep, soft, charming hazel eyes that draw focus to a pleasant face.

straight for her. The playful grin turns boyish and eager when their eyes meet and she has to look away before she bites her lip and gives it all away.
He is wedged between Sirius and Peter, an arm draped over each of them, but he
wrenches himself away from them and drops into the empty seat on her left,
tossing an arm over her shoulders.
Lily. Marlene,” he says with a nod for the blonde to her right.
James.” Marlene smirks at him as Sirius, Remus, and Peter take up three spots
across the table from them. “Boys.”

table even as he loads up his plate with bacon and eggs.

her silky, wavy blonde hair, vibrant blue eyes, and curvy build, she is no
stranger to boys like Sirius Black hitting on her. Still, Sirius is one of the
few boys who manages to makes those comments and walk away unscathed. She
claims it’s because their respective best friends are dating and it would be
awkward to face him day after day knowing that she had all but hexed his balls
off, but Lily suspects it’s more than that.
flicking her hair over her shoulder, Marlene turns her attention away from Sirius,
fixes a charming smile on her face, and leans toward Remus across the table.
When she speaks, her voice is high-pitched and just slightly breathy. “Hey, did
you finish that Defense essay yet?”

just oblivious to female interest, but actively tries to avoid it and therefore
will not be seduced into helping Marlene with anything.

fixes him a heaping serving of the sausages sitting in front of her. “You want
my notes, don’t you?”
I’m in completely over my head here,” Marlene drops the seductive tone and
hands his loaded plate back.
I don’t actually take notes in Defense.” He cracks a rueful smile when she

it and throws it back at him.

both of them happily ignoring Remus’s scowl.

you hit me, Black, you’re a dead man,” Lily says darkly. He eyes her for a
moment, takes note of her wand sitting next to her hand on the table, and
wisely drops the jam.

Marlene, who is now watching them with wide eyes. He may be her boyfriend, and
she may be the only person in the world who finds him more attractive than

tongue to the roof of his mouth.

as ever that James is staring at her. It’s a bit difficult to ignore someone
staring at you when said person is sitting barely two inches away, but she
gives it her best effort, chatting with Marlene, Remus, and Peter in between
bites of her breakfast. Next to Remus, Sirius is clearly taking advantage of
James’s inattention, doing something with his wand under the table. She has a
brief moment of pity for her boyfriend before she remembers that he definitely probably deserves whatever Sirius has in

a silly thing to lie about. It’s his favorite shirt in the world. He’s worn it
just about daily since his parents gave it to him for Christmas three years ago
and he would know it anywhere. There’s a telltale stain just below her left
breast where Sirius spilled Doxy venom on him back in fifth year – he still has
the scar on his chest to prove it – and a hole the size of a knut where the
too-long sleeve bunches up at her right wrist.
it is. That’s my Puddlemere United shirt.” He reaches towards her as if he
wants to rip it off of her but seems to think better of it and merely brushes
the back of his bruised hand along the navy blue material covering her arm. If
it were one of the boys caught wearing his shirt, she is sure he wouldn’t
hesitate to rip it off them regardless of the number of onlookers.

shoulder and his mouth at her ear. “It looks really fucking good on you.”
turns her face towards him, undeniably affected by his hot breath on her and
his gravelly tone in her ear. Still, when he leans in to kiss her, she places a
hand on his chest to still him less than an inch from her lips. “I missed you
sorry,” he says, and tries to kiss her again.
“We had plans. You ditched me,” she reminds him.
“I… It was Sirius’s fault!”
pardon?” Sirius says around a mouthful of bacon.
you hadn’t got tickets to see the Chudley Cannons play Lancashire!” James
exclaims. “They’re both shit teams anyway!”
they’re such shit teams, why did you ditch your girlfriend to watch them?”
Remus asks slyly.
why did you cheer harder than anyone else there when Rookwell made that goal?”
Peter adds with a soft, amused snort.
James brandishes his empty fork across the table at his friends.

fork. “He didn’t force you to do anything.”

her attention on her breakfast.
don’t blame me,” Sirius says.
looking away from Lily, James throws a greasy sausage at Sirius, hitting him on
the nose and ignoring his protests.
Quidditch! I have poor impulse control when presented with Quidditch! You knew
that and decided to love me anyway!”
you admit it’s your fault,” Lily prompts.
all my fault. I’m stupid and I chose Quidditch over you and it wasn’t even
worth it, even if Rookwell did make that spectacular goal. Anyway, not
important. Still not better than spending an evening with you.” He leans in
close again, presses a quick kiss to her neck before she can stop him. One hand
tangles in her hair and the other creeps slowly up her thigh beneath the table.
“Or a morning, an hour, a few minutes.”
few minutes? You need to work on that, mate,” Sirius laughs.
perhaps he has, and a few minutes is all they need,” Marlene counters, sparing
Sirius an unimpressed glance as she reaches across the table for a strip of
bacon. “Something you should work on, maybe.”
gapes at her. Before he has a chance to get his thoughts in order enough to
retort, Lily’s wand is in her hand and pointing at him. He chokes, grabs his
mouth, and glares at her with his tongue firmly plastered to the roof of his
mouth. She smiles at him and turns her attention back to her boyfriend, who
only looks ever more turned on now that she has hexed his best friend.
heated gaze is her undoing, but she tries to hide it with a lofty sigh as she
studies him thoughtfully. “You do look rather pitiful.”
not entirely true. What he looks is desperate
with his wet, pink lips and dark, round, wide eyes. It makes her feel desperate.
She leans in close to him, feels him take a deep breath, either steadying
himself or breathing her in, she’s never too certain. His fingers drum a tattoo
high on her thigh under the fabric of her skirt. She hums in delight.
you can make it up to me.” She is sure to keep her tone husky, a bit raspy, the
way she knows he can’t resist.
from her, Sirius watches with one arched brow, a knowing smirk playing on his lips,
all insult and injury forgotten. Remus rolls his eyes and looks away pointedly,
the corners of his moth upturned just slightly while Peter laughs openly at the
wide-eyed stare James is giving her. Marlene just grins at them, not that
either of them notice what any of their friends are up to.

quickly, and turns to walk from the Great Hall without looking back. He trips
over shoelaces suddenly tied together – Sirius’s sneaky doing earlier, no doubt
– and she hears him hit the ground cursing unreservedly, followed by the
laughter of several nearby students.
never does take much teasing to get him going. When he catches up to her
seconds later, a blazing look in his eye, and takes her hand to pull her along
at a faster pace, she knows she’s in for a real treat.
hey mom and dad (my coming out letter to my parents)
I debated sharing this on tumblr for a while, but figured if someone is struggling coming out to their conservative parents, there’s a chance this could help. I wrote a letter as not to put them on the spot, to allow them their own time to process it, and to give them a tangible part of myself so they could not dismiss it in conversation.
Please feel free to message me if you have questions or want advice in talking to your parents. I’m more than happy to share more of my story with you.
“As you both know, I’m much better at expressing myself through writing than in person. So even though we talked about some important things at dinner the other night, the topic that was intended to be covered was not. I was already feeling tense and nervous and had put a lot of pressure on myself, and for sharing something this personal I didn’t want the energy to be negative. There was also a lot of anticipation from everyone at the table and I didn’t want that to add to the possible ‘shock factor’ or put anyone on the spot.
The more I learn about human patterns and behavior, the more I learn about how willing people are to conform to social norms, conscious or not. Sometimes things that seem petty can be so influential on a person’s identity and sense of self without them even realizing it. I think it’s apparent that I have grown to the point of critically analyzing the way things are instead of accepting them at face value. I’m still making progress in this area, but being aware that the world’s expectations of me are not always who I am has helped me learn some things about myself that never seemed like viable options.
You have both witnessed the boys I have dated growing up and I know you weren’t all that crazy about any of them. Honestly neither was I- but I’m sure that was pretty apparent. I’d never experienced the heartbreak that I saw [my sister] experience with her relationships. I never really went through the typical teenage-girl “boy crazy” phase. Mom, you’ve told me with every boyfriend that I’m a heartbreaker because of my apathy in the relationship. The most I’ve been hurt by other people is when friendships end- not when romantic relationships have ended. Of course, many things are factors of my lack of caring when it comes to boyfriends, but I think one of the main ones is just that I don’t want to date boys. And I don’t know if I ever really have, or if that was a reflection of me trying to find my place in society- conforming to what the world expects from me.
Then I met [my best friend, a man], who is essentially everything I thought I wanted in a boyfriend at the time. And yet I still could not bring myself to date him. There was still something missing aside from our personal compatibility. I value how close my friendship with him is and I want the best for him, but I have no desire to be his girlfriend or to have him as my boyfriend, or to have a boyfriend. I don’t know if you know where this is going yet, or if you are surprised at all by this statement, but I don’t want to date men. I want to date women (want to, lol. I’m still alone). That is who I am.
I’m the same person I was before you read this- the only thing that has changed is me deciding it’s time to open up to you. I love and appreciate you and the support you have shown me through the years and I hope you can still see me as me and not as a label. The only difference you can expect is for me to be more comfortable in being myself around you and not feeling like I have to hide a part of myself from you.”
side note: I left this letter in their room then left the country for a week where I had no service. not even sorry lol
(A/N) Hey again! So, this time I started writing something about Eric from Divergent. I used the Eric from the movies sind I haven’t read the books. I hope you enjoy it and as always, I’m open for feedback!
Warnings: I don’t think there are any warnings…
four years since I chose to chance my life. I left Erudite and joined
Dauntless, the best decision I ever made for sure. The only downside? I had to
leave her. No, not my girlfriend. But my best friend, the only person that ever
put up with. The only one that was always able to put a smile on my face.
Still, I chose to leave and swore to never look back.
Every time I see her, I start to regret it. The joy in her eyes I was used to,
slowly left. Her rosy, full cheeks became hallow and her smile completely
I knew the problems she had, I was the only one who knew and I still had enough
selfishness within me to leave her. Enough selfishness to never talk to her
again or come to the pit when she visited me on visiting day. So I guess that’s
the reason I was so nervous while waiting on the rooftop for the new Initiates.
Nervous she could be one of them.
But, what are the chances? She can choose from five factions, why should she
I really chose
Dauntless, huh? With two drops of blood I left Erudite and joined Dauntless,
the worst decision I ever made for sure. I mean, okay, I’m not all too bad at
running and I have good reflexes. But he is probably going to be there. He, the
one that left me alone when I needed him the most. The one that knew of all my
troubles and still chose to leave. Well, it’s too late to regret it, I was
already on my way to my new home…at least I hope it is going to become one.
I leaned against a wall of the train that brought us to the Dauntless compound.
All around me were other teens, a lot of them from Dauntless, seven from
Candor, five, inclusive me, from Erudite, two from Amity and one from
Abnegation. Most of them were boys, only six of us were girls.
“Get ready to jump!” one of the Dauntless born yelled and everyone from the
other factions looked utterly confused.
We all stood up and walked to the doors. I stretched my head out and saw people
jumping out of the train from the other carts. They landed on a roof, some with
more elegance, some with less.
“They can’t expect us to jump! We will fall!” the girl from Abnegation tried to
reason with the boy from Amity. “The first step for us to prove we are worthy.”
I murmured to myself and walked back to the wall opposite of the door. As soon
as I saw the roof, I started to run and leaped across the space between the
tracks and the edge of the rooftop.
I fell to my knees while landing and I could feel the burning pain. Well done! Scraping your knees and you’re
not even in the compound! Well, that’s just my luck.
“Initiates! Come here!” A tall guy yelled and the others walked over to him.
Me? I seriously considered to jump down from the roof. After all, I knew the
voice…too well. Of course I had to see him before anyone else. There, again, my
I joined the others while trying to keep my head low. Still, I could see him,
and he changed. A lot.
His blonde hair was now in a short military cut, he gained a lot of muscles and
had one or two (or thirty for that matter) tattoos. Like every other Dauntless,
he wore all black. It suited him. The piercing above his eyebrow seemed to
match him so well, I got the feeling it’s always been there. Dauntless, through
Initiates! This is the only way to Dauntless. Don’t even bother asking! If
you want to know, you’ll have to jump.” Eric jumped down from the ledge and
walked up and down in front of the group of sixteen year old teenagers. “Who’s
going to jump first?” As soon as this question left his mouth, the group
parted. It was as if Mosses parted the red sea and I was the only one who
didn’t get the memo. So I just stood there and Eric’s eyes instantly found
mine. If you looked closely you could see the exact moment realisation hit him.
His eyes widened, if only for a fraction of a second. I only noticed it because
I was looking for it.
He swallowed and cleared his throat. “What about you, Initiate?” Eric nodded towards
the ledge and silently asked me to come forward.
He was never one to not listen, so I just did as I was asked and stepped
“Need help, princess?” Eric stretched out his hand, as if he would like to help
me, but I ignored it and climbed up onto the ledge. “Whenever you’re ready,
Darling!” I rolled my eyes, took a deep breath and stepped forward.
Since we saw Juggie punch someone in the promo, could you write a fic where Juggie gets in a fight and Betty heals his wounds?
I’ll give it a go sure thing!
His knuckles were bleeding and he could hardly see out of his left eye, the swelling making it difficult to even blink. He had nowhere to go,The party still carrying on at Archie’s, and Pops already closed for the night. He continued to wander the streets of Riverdale, Glancing at his phone, it read 1:43, his birthday was over and his heart felt heavy.
It had been a nice gesture and it had all started out harmless enough, the blue and gold themed birthday party Betty had thrown him was thoughtful and quiet, he could still remember her softly singing him Happy Birthday as she held up the Hamburger shaped birthday cake, his new and old friends watching and clapping as he blew out the candles.
Then it all went to shit. And it was all thanks to Cheryl Blossom, the red headed child of Satan. no one asked her to come, no one asked her to invite the entire Riverdale Sophomore class and absolutely no one asked her to invite Chuck Clayton, resident asshole and douchebag to all. Jughead had plans to ignore the prick, that was until he started in on Ethel.
Ethel Muggs family was going through similar hardships Jughead had experienced just years ago and he genuinely felt for her. Chuck Clayton however, did not. Chuck had been vial, calling her homeless trash, a cowards daughter. One thing led to another and Jughead had Chucks blood on his hands and the dark skinned boys knuckle indents on his face.
Betty had tried to break up the fight, innocent and tipsy she had screamed at Chuck and attempted to defend her boyfriend, Jughead was far too gone for that though, he winced at his memories, he could really be an idiot sometimes.
As Betty was defending Jughead he was screaming at the blonde, publically breaking up with her, telling her she wasn’t who he thought she was, calling her a poser, a drunk. God he was an idiot, he freaked out, tensed up under the pressure. He could just call her, go back to the party, sneak her away into a room. Talk about it, that’s what they did. Talk. But no, he was the coward. He didn’t want to see the hurt in her eyes.
He froze in his spot. Holy shit.
“Jughead?! Where are you?” The familiar voice called again from somewhere behind him.
Whipping around and rounding the corner, he came face to face with a tear stained, messy ponytail Betty Cooper. She stopped abruptly, her hands clutching some small black bag.
“Jughead” she whispered, her shoulders slumping in relief. Grabbing his wrist quickly she pulled him over to sit on one of the park benches it was directly underneath a harsh street lamp.
“Betty?” He asked as she dug in the little black bag. She didn’t look up just continued digging before pulling out a cue tip and some form of clear cream, suddenly she was pressing down gently on his eye, the stinging making him wince
“I’m sorry” she whispered, placing two slender fingers on the bruise. She then moved on to his knuckles, she finally glanced up at him quickly
“This is going to hurt the most.”
He nodded slowly.
She dabbed his hand with the alcohol wipe and he hissed audibly, quickly she grabbed his hand and blew gently
“I had to disinfect it, I know it stings.” As she wrapped his knuckles with the white gauze he cleared his throat
She cut him off, her voice tired and weak
“I get it Jughead, okay? You don’t have to tell me again, I’m not what you want. It’s okay.”
He saw the lone tear drop on his pant leg.
He didn’t know you could physically feel your heart break until today, Jughead slowly gripped her chin, bringing her face to his as she finished taping his knuckles with her shaky fingers.
“I’m an idiot, the biggest idiot in the world. I didn’t mean what I said, any of it.”
Betty opened her mouth to argue, but he shook his head and continued
“I was angry, at everyone. My adrenaline, I don’t know, it’s no excuse but I need you to know, I didn’t mean any of it. You were the last person I should have taken my anger out on, after everything you did. You’re amazing, the best girlfriend, and I… I don’t want to lose you. You’re everything I want.” He felt his own voice grow thick with emotion at the thought of losing her.
Betty looked hesitant but nodded slowly, her hand dropping to hold his, she winced slightly. ever observant, Jughead noticed and pulled her fiery red palm to his face
“Woah, what happened here.” He questioned sigh concern. Betty blushed slightly
“I may have slapped Chuck, it’s a long story. It’s my turn to apologize. I got too caught up in it all. Caught up in Veronica, in Archie. It was your birthday, I should’ve been there for you. I’m so sorry Juggie. She dropped her forehead to his.
Shaking his head Jughead pulled her in for a quick kiss
“Have you heard of the after birthday, birthday?” He whispered close to her ear. He felt her smile against him and shake her head. “Oh it’s an age old tradition, the day after someone’s birthday the birthday boy, which is me, gets to pick someone to lay around, watch Netflix and eat burgers with, you’ve really never heard of it?” He pulled away and acted mock shocked.
Betty giggled shaking her head exaggeratedly
“What does one have to do to get this honor bestowed upon them?” She asked in a serious tone.
Jughead grabbed the little first aid kit and tucked her hand into his.
“She simply has to be Betty Cooper, worlds best girlfriend.”
Request: hey I love your blog can i request an NCT 127 reaction to when their girlfriend brings them food on a busy schedule thankss
Yah sure thanks for the request hope you like it - Em
Taeil: You walked into the dance studio and Taeil had just stopped dancing and was standing with his head between his knees. He looked up and saw you carrying a bag filled with his favourite foods. Despite being really tired he immediately smiled and ran over. “Omg babe thank you so much,” He would be so happy but really sad that he didn’t have a lot of time tp eat with you. “Even when I can’t be with you, you think of me. I don’t know what I ever did to find such an amazing girlfriend.” He said giving you a quick peck on the cheek.
Johnny: You showed up to the dorm holding a pizza. It was 2 am but Johnny was always awake so late as he was so busy. You knocked at the door quietly one of the boys was up and let you in. You snuck into Johnny’s room where he was watching some tv. He looked up surprised when you greeted him. “Y/n your here! You have Pizza! I haven’t had pizza in so long. I’m going to die this is great. I love you so much, you have pizza, you’re the best.”
Taeyong: Once you handed him the food you had brought Taeyong would give you a hug and then eat quietly. He felt bad that you had to be the one to surprise him and he didn’t have time to do special things for you. “You didn’t need to do this for me. But I’m really glad you are here. I can hardly ever see you and it’s the worst.” He would sit right next to you to make the most of the short time you had to eat together.
Yuta: “I love food, this is so great babe.” Yuta would be really excited for the food. He would keep thanking you for buying it. “I will pay you back, no wait I will buy you teddies to make up. When this schedule ends I will take you to buy as much food as you want. That’s works out well for both of us. You are the best y/n, even better than this food. And that is saying something.”
Doyoung: Doyoung would play cool but on the inside, he would be happier than a small kid on Christmas. “This is pretty awesome of you, I know I don’t have time to talk to you for real much, your smart to fit lunch into this. I would say this is almost the best part of my day, maybe second to when Haechan didn’t insult me at breakfast. Just joking.” He would be cocky and give you a kiss on the lips before running away back to practise.
Jaehyun: “I’m proud that you know food is the answer. I’m so tired and you have made my week four times better.” Jaehyun would be really happy that you knew all his favourite foods and that he got to see you. “You know they boys have let Mark try and cook a bit recently. You have no idea how thankful I am for this baby.”
Winwin: Winwin would be all smiles. He would give you a hug and fuss asking if there was anything he could do in return. “Thank you so much baobei, if you ever need anything just tell me. It may take me a while to do it for you because I have no time but I will always do it. Just remember I love you more than Taeyong loves me,”
Mark: Mark would be all shy and blushy he wouldn’t have expected you to do something so nice for him especially as he had no time to hang out with you because he was so caught up in schedules. “You didn’t need to do this for me y/n. It’s almost embarrassing how perfect you are compared to me. I actual must be the worst boyfriend ever.” You would probably need to reassure him with lots of hugs that he was the most talented person you knew. “Apart from Haechan.” You said with a smirk. Mark would probably just go jump in a well at that point. (Lmao same)
Haechan: He would become the ultimate little kid. “Thank you!!!” He would shout giving you a bear hug. “This is the best day ever. I have food to eat that is my favourite and it was brought by the only person in this world who is better looking than me. The only one. And that one is you, my epic girlfriend. We will rule the world with our chicken, ice cream and beautiful faces.”
with you i’ve learned that i don’t have to degrade myself so that you can shine.
i’ve learned that i don’t have to hold back when it comes to my passions and interests just because you don’t enjoy them as much as i do.
i’ve learned that i don’t have to be quiet and nice for you to love me. with you i can be loud, crazy, wild and even angry when i need to.
you have shown me what good love is.
and good love makes you blossom.
good love won’t ever make you wilt.
e.s. // a good love.
Sometimes you don’t even notice that your partner is suppressing you. But let me tell you, love is supposed to bring out the best in you and make you become the best person you can be. It won’t ever try to steal your light or turn you into something less.
request: Can I request a Reggie Mantle imagine maybe where the reader is his gf and friend with the og 4 and they keep talking bad about him but she always defends him and then one day he like sits with them at lunch and they realize he isn’t really that bad of a guy
requested by: anonymous
A/N: I AM THE WORST!!! I am so sorry it took so long. I really really hope you love this. xx, aubree.
Reggie Mantle. Tall, handsome as hell, and one of the most misunderstood people in all of Riverdale. There was only one person he ever opened up to. His best friend turned girlfriend, Y/N Y/L/N. She saw the side of him that he hid from the world. To everyone else, Reggie was the douchebag jock who was a little too full of himself. To Y/N, he was the boy who was pressured by his father to be perfect; to be someone he wasn’t.
This is my first time submitting but hi there I’m Shalise ( @tired-insomniac )and that beautiful girl next to me in all the photos is Kaylee ( @mimosaseveryday ). I wanted to submit because I wanted to share our story and why it’s so important to me.
We met on tumblr which is funny because my ex before her is the one who told me to get a tumblr (and little did I know I would eventually find the love of my life.) but she followed me back in December of 2016 and of course I saw how beautiful she was and I immediately followed her back. No less than a few minutes later she messaged me and we haven’t stopped talking ever since 😌. But the reason this is so important is because before we met on tumblr I had reached a very low point in my life and it had gotten so bad my family and friends made me get professional help for what I was going through.. I had just gotten out of a relationship that I wasn’t happy in and it was beginning to become toxic for both of us. I had just lost my two cats and I had to give them away. I was doing really bad in school and in sport. I was detached from my family and I didn’t really have close friends. I felt alone and it was draining me emotionally. I got to a point in my life where I was done trying to keep up the fake smile and the fake life where I was trying to make everyone else happy but myself. I was ready to give it all up.. but on the 12th of December that all changed. I had no idea that my life would take a 180 turn. Everyday we would message each other and just talk to each other. It wasn’t ever intimate or anything more than friends at that time but she was someone I knew I could go to everyday and I could talk about anything with her without feeling I couldn’t be myself. I felt so good inside, it was strange because although I had never met her I had this feeling that she was someone I needed to keep around. I had an overwhelming feeling to make sure I never lost this or lost the friendship we had built up even though it was virtual. I realized that the strange but good feeling I had was a form of love. I cared for her in a way that I couldn’t explain but it was like I wanted to keep her safe and made sure she was okay. I felt the need to always keep her close to my heart and during that time she was always on my mind. I would catch myself thinking about her and imagining what it would be like to have her in my life. Like how much more intense this feeling would burn if we could physically see each other and just feel each other’s presence…
Kaylee didn’t know it at the time but she saved my life. The simple knowledge of knowing that someone who didn’t even know me was there for me everyday and made sure that I was going to be okay without even knowing the effect she had on me. She brought me out of a dark place that no one else could get me out of, not even myself. I was relieved and I felt like I was a better person the more we talked and got to know each other. I was falling for her everyday. And I didn’t want to stop. We finally built up the courage to meet in real life and I can honestly say that the moment I saw her standing outside under a tree outside of my apartment I knew it was her. It was going to be her and I. We were gonna take on the world, together. She struck something so deep in my heart that made me realize that everyone before her was a mistake or a lesson that needed to be learned before I could be the best person for her. Ever since then we have been inseparable.
I finally asked her to be my girlfriend on July 7th which is the best date ever because it’s 7/7/17! She said yes and I have been the happiest in my entire life! I wanted to submit this because I want people to see that there is light at the end of the tunnel and even when your life feels like it’s in a dark hole or you feel like you can’t get out just know it gets better and you will get better! Someone is out there and they will love you for exactly who you are and they will make you feel like you can take over the world!
I love you Kaylee and I can’t wait to see where life takes us from here 🖤💚
Okay op, I doubt this is what you wanted but here we go.
“CHLOE WHY WON’T YOU JUST SHUT UP?!”
Look, no matter what some people (aka everybody) said about Marinette she wasn’t hot-headed. Seriously, she wasn’t! It was just quick reacting. Yeah, totally quick reacting. Marinette was generally a very patient person, thank you very much. But there were times when Chloe was too much. The blonde huffed and put a hand on her hip while gesticulating wildly with the other while still holding a pair of pink panties.
“Well, excuse me for trying to give you fashion advice.”
“Why in the world are you giving me fashion advice on my underwear? Also, you insulted my favourite matching pink one with the black lace, so I won’t give you any sweets for the rest of the week.”
“Seriously, why are you so into lace and why is almost everything in here pink, Mari, sweetheart I love you, but… what did you just say?”
“No sweets,” Marinette announced calmly while scrolling through her phone and feigning disinterest. “For the rest of the week. Because you apparently seem to hate every piece of underwear I own.”
Chloe immediately threw the pink panties behind her back and leaned against the wall in a pose that was supposed to be seductive. Supposed being the key word.
“You know why I did that?” Marinette finally turned her attention to her and raised an eyebrow. “Because I prefer you in nothing, babe.”
Chloe gave an awkward smile as Marinette’s expression changed into something between entirely unimpressed and about to give the longest sigh ever. Fuck. She should have known better than take flirting advice from Adrien.
Marinette sighed. “Remind me, why am I dating you?”
“Um, because we are two individuals who love and trust each other, have complementing personalities, are very sassy and serve the best burns ever together and also have some insane sexual tension because of our still present rivalry?”
Marinette got up from her chair and gave Chloe a honest smile. “That’s true.”
She went to put her phone to charge between turning to her girlfriend and giving her a quick kiss on the lips.
“You are still not getting any sweets for the rest of the week.”
