A/N: This has to be one of my favourite things that I’ve ever written :) Please pay attention to the dates and times! It begins in the present, and then there are a series of flashbacks. They’re all in chronological order for ease of reading, but please pay attention to the timings if you’re unsure!
With a cream envelope held between your fingers, you can’t prevent the smile from spreading across your lips. A greying memory slips into your mind, your eyes fluttering to a close as you let yourself get taken away to the land of fantasies.
Valentine’s day, two years ago, 1pm
At the sound of your name, you looked up. You were in a park, sitting on a picnic blanket. Surrounding you were hundreds of tiny daisies, scattered amongst the green grass like a sprinkling of icing sugar.
“Hmm?” You looked across the blanket to see Calum, your boyfriend, with a wide smile spread across his face.
Summary: Victor comes down with the flu and is a fevered and miserable mess. Yuuri takes care of him until he gets better.
Set post-season 1. There will be no emeto because that squicks me tf out, even in fiction, but there is complaints of mild stomach issues and a bit of anxiety around that. It all turns out okay though, I promise! There will also be fevered dreams, all centred around Victor’s pov.
Choosing flu over cold because I’ve heard people say it comes on more quickly. Plus, cold is more prominent in fanfic (from what I’ve seen) so I thought this might be more refreshing.
Well, let’s see. Being an air moon, it constantly feels like a battle in between trying to voice my feelings and being only considerate of how others feel around me. Feeling guilty when I talk about myself or upset someone when no one asks, and the shattering feeling of knowing no one out here is really out for anyone else but themselves.
My heart yearns for romance, the feeling of love and oneness with another soul captivates my whole existence. Heartbreak and rejection are my weakness. I used to reject my need for love, I still somewhat do, as it doesn’t cooperate with the rest of the world and its needs.
Justice is my light at the end of the tunnel. I fight for it with every ounce of blood, sweat, and tears imaginable within me. I keep on climbing until I reach another goal. Patience is my gift, I was forced to learn it through my whole childhood. I’ve had to wait for everything, and I still do.
I am a people pleaser. I have had to be malleable in situations where I didn’t feel most comfortable being in, but I sacrifice my comfort for those around me. I must be graceful, thoughtful, considerate, and pleasant.
My strive for excellence and perfection lead me to hopeless idealism. I do everything with utmost diligence and potency. My thoughts lead me to a never ending spiral of imaginary situations. Day dreaming of what could be instead of what is.
Music is my peace of mind. My family told me I used to never sleep until there was music playing in the background. I find beauty in simplicity. Animals are my friends.
Summary - Part 2; Seth and Reader have been together for just over a year and it seemed they knew all about each other to every little detail. Seth had proven over time that he is true to his character portrayed on screen, ‘The Man’ however when he finds out some life-altering news, will he allow his old cowardly ways to take over.
My eyes slowly fluttered open instantly taking in the artificial looking white walls surrounding me along with the various chemical smells that filled my nostrils. My vision roamed the room, my brain already disoriented from the however long amount of time I was asleep. However, It wasn’t exactly long before I was able to distinguish a light, warm breath brush against my knuckles as my medically hooked up hand lay against the bed. In an instant, I shifted my focus to the figure leant against the bed; his forehead pressed against my hand and his leg bouncing up and down at a constant speed, a tell-tale sign that whatever was going on within his mind, it was causing him to be nothing less than in a pure state of panic. It seemed as though he sensed my change in movement as his head jolted upwards causing his chocolate eyes to instantly meet mine. My heart seemed to shudder even at the lone thought of him saying the slightest word- I mean not long before I was begging him to say something, say anything but now I just wish he’d say silent…. like always.
“I came.” He mumbled, reaching once again for my hand as I ripped my palms away from his touch- I couldn’t be in contact with him; not right now.
“You came!? Is that really all you can say Seth?” Anger seethed through my bloodstream; how dare he come here and have absolutely no response for the actions that left me in this position in the first place.
“What do you expect me to say? When you spring some news like that onto me how else was I supposed to react?” He began, his tone getting stronger by the second as sweat began to appear in droplets onto his forehead. “It all seemed kind of selfish to me-”
“Selfish!? Seth, are you even hearing the words coming out of your mouth right now? I seriously cannot believe you. This is our baby, our child and you’re saying I’m selfish for something that takes two fucking people to create.” Enough was enough. When it comes to Seth you’ve always had a soft side; no matter how bad of an argument you’d gotten into, you never fully managed to gain so much anger, so much hatred towards this one man. Today was an entirely different day, now you had not only yourself to defend for.
“Yes, slightly selfish the fact that you’d given me no warning at all. Not even one sign or doubt towards the situation. I worked my ass off to get us that match at Mania as I wasn’t expecting this to be the thing that gets in the way of our dream.” He stated with annoyance ever present in his words. His dark locks cascaded down the sides of his face as he released the band that held them loosely at the back of his head- He never let his hair down; only for two reasons, wrestling or because he was frustrated.
“Seth! My dream has always been to marry you and to have children with you because you were the only man I’d envisioned to do that with. From the moment I saw you back in FCW I knew you were the one for me and ever since we’ve been dating I’ve known I want to spend the rest of my life with you; now you’re making me doubt myself Seth.” I proclaimed, already fresh tears welling up in the corners of my eyes and ultimately blurring my vision yet still anyone could see the picture of a broken man; his head lowered and rested in the palms of his hands. “Seth, that’s always been my dream, I thought this was both of our dreams. Now I don’t think we’re picturing the same future, we aren’t visioning the same dreams anymore.”
Wiping the stray tears that escaped my eyes with my thumbs I desperately tried to avoid any eye contact with the man sitting beside me; unsure whether to call him the man I loved anymore. He wasn’t the same anymore, it just isn’t the same person I knew a month ago.
“You always told me your dream was for us to wrestle together. You’re acting like I don’t care about you. I’m here, I came and I found you y/n.” He spoke in some sincerity but I wasn’t buying it; not this time at least. I couldn’t lower myself to that.
“You came too late. You found me in a hospital bed because Dean had to tell you. He and Renee had to bring me here because you weren’t man enough to pick up the damn phone Seth. Guess you fooled the whole universe with your whole ‘I’m the Man’ gimmick but you’re not fooling me Seth.” How did it get this way… how did it ever end up like this? I couldn’t even think clearly anymore, it was just his clogging up every thinking passage left, right and centre. It wasn’t even like I was scared of him, he would never do anything but still the lone fact that I felt the need to place a hand delicately across my stomach in some sort of self-defense was enough to leave my heart shattered and broken into way more than a million fragments.
“Well that doesn’t have to matter-” He started to utter words to redeem himself, clearly knowing that through his words he’d completely fractured me.
The slow creek of a door redirected my thoughts seeing the pure white coat of the door enter the room, immediately blending with the clean, sterile looking wall behind him. “Mrs y/l/n, you bruised your hip slightly in the fall obviously adding to your previous complications but we advise that as long as you use your crutches as much as possible, it should heal pretty quickly.”
“It’s Miss…” I uttered, glancing over at Seth in the corners of my eyes before returning my vision to the tall man stood at the end of the bed and consequently my arm which was still rested lightly on the main worries I had right now. “What about the baby?”
“Well we’d like to run some tests now on the baby.” He exclaimed and with those few words I’d never felt the world become so small in my entire life. Never could I ever dream for this to end in misery; not even in these circumstances… That’s when I felt a set of fingers intertwine with mine. Knowing saying something would start a fuss, I opted to remain silent but as soon as the doctor said he’d be back and exited the room, I snapped.
“What do you think you’re doing? Seth now isn’t the time for this. I think you should go…” Even saying those words send my emotions into a downwards spiral- I mean how did I even get to this point with him. Was it my fault or his?
“No, I’ll stay. You even said it, this baby is mine as well so I’m staying right here.” He muttered. I had to admit it; it felt good hearing those words for him in that very moment but once it had settled in, it all just seemed to be one big cover-up to shield the man that I didn’t expect him to be. He couldn’t win that easily.
“Seth why don’t you just get it. I want you to leave. Please.” Already I felt the tears threatening to spill and it wouldn’t be long before they did but before that Seth had to go. He couldn’t see me vulnerable- I won’t let him. With those few words I’d mumbled it was a mere matter of seconds before he rose from his seat and left, not turning back once to my relief. I don’t think I’d cope seeing his face anymore.
As soon as I heard that door click to a close, my head immediately pressed into the pillow and my hands reached my face as loud sobs escaped my lips, unable to be contained anymore. I couldn’t help but just think this was the end… the end for the trust we’d built up over the course of an entire year, the end of us. I guess not all stories end with a happy family after all…
A/N - Damn these Seth imagines are killing my heart like seriously! Anyways hope this part lives up to the last and you all enjoyed it even if we’re all dying slightly. Have so much planned for this! And as always your responses and thought on the part mean so much to me! Thank you guys! xo ~ Nikkii
Ok, never in my wildest dreams did I think we would end up with all of these bakeries and crumbs when we started noticing Sprousehart’s (or Lilicole as they were called then) twitter banter and sneaky adventures whilst eating leaves in a forest. Ah remember that? Thank god for all of you dudes and for the two dorkiest, loveliest sunflowers around.
Every. Single. Day. Of last week till today has truly been a blessing I'm also wondering how we are still alive. I just I'm so shook. Damn I want the wedding now.
IKR!?!? That entire week I was like
I cannot believe how amazing they’ve been to us. Like you said, every single day. And it’s not stopping. I bet we’ll get little things here and there for the rest of this week too. And then next week and of course the wedding. I’m in heaven right now.
yo just want to say that having sex dreams is normal, even when you’re in a relationship and the person in your dream isn’t your partner. It’s not cheating, it’s not sneaky or bad, it’s just a dream. please don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
The cruelest part of his imprisonment was that he was not restrained.
He could roam his own home freely, Grindelwald didn’t live there, and as such he could destroy it as his temper lashed out, as his desperation grew, and Grindelwald could come in, gleefully surveying the physical evidence of his prisoner’s frustration, the destruction wrought upon Percival Graves’ expensive flat and all the personal items therein.

Getting this out first, I loved every single change they made to the show. There are a lot of little changes and some big ones. But they all worked out for the better. I’m listing the songs from the Broadway production below and basically the changes. Posting Act 2 in a separate post
A/n : I love this movie. Oh my,, Anyway I got this idea from @mysmegifscenarios who gave me a match up with Zen using GIFS from this scene and an idea formed!
All those days watching from the windows All those years outside looking in You always despised cutesy relationships. Them always holding hands, and cute pet names, they always just rubbed you the wrong way. You walked past a window of a restaurant, there was an older couple sitting there. They weren’t talking or touching each other in some way, they were just looking at each other, smiling. You felt yourself smile with them, thinking you always seemed to be on this side of the glass. For once, you wanted to find someone that you had to worry about, someone that occupied your every waking and sleeping thoughts. Then came the RFA… All that time never even knowing Just how blind I’ve been You spent so far of your adulthood hating relationships, and avoiding them. Then came the fateful day you met Zen. Of course at first, you were scared and annoyed at his blunt flirting. However, he grew on you. You became close, and you developed a crush. You ended up brushing it off as, you had a crush on the idea of him. So when you got the opportunity to see him, you took it. Now I’m here blinking in the starlight After talking and hanging around Zen for the day, your crush was no longer of the idea of him. When you went to the roof with him, you both stood watching the stars and the skyline. When he started talking about his family, your heart broke. You wanted to be there for him now, and support him when he felt no one would. The purple and blues in the dark sky contrasted with the yellow lights of the roof. Making Zen glow more then usual. Now I’m here suddenly I see Standing here it’s all so clear I’m where I’m meant to be Looking away from the sky to look back at Zen to find him already looking at you. You looked at him and it was clear. People don’t chose to fall in love, it just trips you. Zen was staring at you intently, as if contemplating something. He wrapped his arms around you, you closed your eyes and wrapped your hands around his neck. Then it hit you, as clear as glass, where ever Zen was is where you were meant to be. And it’s warm and real and bright And the world has somehow shifted Finally you found someone, finally your was warm and had a new light to it. The sun seemed less annoying, the birds less loud, and the world was less dull. Your world had just changed, and you had no idea what is was or what to about it All at once everything looks different Now that I see you As you went home all the couples you saw, were just happy. They were something you wanted to be with Zen. Yes, it may have been a childish fantasy at this moment, yet your logical side couldn’t out rule it.
(Zen POV) All those days chasing down a daydream Sitting on the roof always made me think. The thought tonight was, everyday I’ve had since I ran away has been based on a daydream, and it could end at anytime. I always am running to what I think is the life I want. Yet, since she showed up all that changed. Every time In my dream I never new where I ended up, but now? I end up in her arms. All those years living in a blur Before joining the RFA it was a blur, I barely got by, living on the last cent everyday. I flirted with women, but I never really Noticed them. All that time never truly seeing Things, the way they were I always saw couples and I was jealous. I could never picture who that person was with. I never truly saw the world as though someone truly loved me for more then just an idol, or a pretty face. Then came her, it was sudden, but I new it was something. Now she’s here shining in the starlight Now she was here with me, standing on the roof. Looking at the stars like I often do. The stars and lights reflecting in her eyes, making them glow. She was beside me, she was real. She didn’t like just my face, she liked even the broken pieces I had, and even started helping me clean them up. Now she’s here suddenly I know If she’s here it’s crystal clear Now that she’s with me I’ve realized something. Its as clear as he glasses that Jerk probably drinks out of. If she’s here…I’m where I’m meant to go….. And at last I see the light And it’s like the fog has lifted And at last I see the light And it’s like the sky is new At last I feel what it’s like to be more then a pretty face. I finally know what it’s like to be truly cared for and loved. I see the world in a new light, and the fog of difficulty and pain is gone. It’s like the stars I see every night are drastically different then everything I had ever seen before. And it’s warm and real and bright And the world has somehow shifted All at once everything is different Now that I see you The isolated cold I felt before is gone. I feel as though I finally found the warm fire after a cold winters day. My world is different in everyway. My acting will be for her, my every waking and sleeping breath will be fore her. All after seeing who i can be, with her by my side.
