never thought about it that way did you

At Annie’s, after coming out to the crew...

Bitty: Wait, you guys all knew? How?

Shitty: Well, Jack’s crush on you was pretty obvious.

Jack: What

Holster: You were not subtle about it, bro.

Ransom: The looks, the coffee dates, the smiles-

Lardo: THE PICTURES

Holster: OMG you can’t forget the pictures- His whole photography final was a shrine to Bitty!

Ransom: Kinda sad, but in a cute way?

Jack: …

Bitty: …He was obvious? I never noticed! What about my crush on Jack, did y’all see it coming miles away too?

(They all look at each other)

Shitty: …no? Not really? We all thought Jack was pining after you…

Ransom: We were preparing a Captain’s talk about not leading him on, he was having a hard enough time on the NHL…

Bitty: But- I was being SO obvious! I did all that too, the looks and the smiles and- and- and I was being super nice to Jack, feeding him pies and stuff!

Shitty: Bits, my dude. You do that with everybody.

Lardo: We were kinda surprised he managed to land you.

Ransom: You’re so out of his league.

Jack: They’re kinda right.

I fell in love with you not knowing what love really was. I stayed in love with you because no one else made me feel the way you did.I still fall in love with you everyday because there’s no one I picture my future with other than you
You’ll end up disappointed if you think people care for you the way you care for them, nobody has a heart like you do. The the best way to avoid disappointment is to not expect anything from anyone. Fall in love with actions, not words. Don’t fall in love with ideas and thoughts instead of reality, it will be the death of you. Don’t be that person to be nice and apologize when you did nothing wrong, never make unworthy people a priority in your life. You deserve someone who actually gives a fuck about you, because you’ve spent your whole like making other people happy when all they did was leave and nothing hurts more than being disappointed by the person you thought would never hurt you, it’s funny how we let 1 single person disappoint us 1000 times. It’s like we all have this perfect picture in our minds of how things are supposed to be and that’s why we all end up being disappointed.
—  I have to stop getting my hopes up for things that will never happen.

I forgive you.

you never apologized for everything that you ever put me through and you probably didn’t even notice any of it because people usually don’t notice things they dont care about, and thats what I was to you. I was just another person that existed, I was just another person that made you feel like you were worth something.

All you ever did was make me feel incomplete. I’d look at myself for hours until I could no longer recognize anything in trying to figure out why you don’t love me in the way I put love into you.
And even if you didn’t love me in that way, why couldn’t you at least be a good damn friend.

but you never gave me a thing. and I used to stay up at night trying to convince myself that you cared about me when I knew damn well you never did.
I always knew what I was to you but I tried to ignore it for so long, I convinced myself otherwise because when you know that the person that you love, does not even give a damn about you something inside you shuts off and I couldn’t deal with that and I didn’t want to accept that so I kept trying to see something that was never there.
I think thats what destroyed me in the end, knowing the reality of what we were but trying to look past that and find something that wasn’t there.
I was looking for so long, I got lost and forgot what I was looking for.
and I forgive you.
I forgive you for all of it, I forgive you for the nights I stayed up crying because you chose her. I forgive you for leaving and then coming back just so you could leave all over again. I forgive you for the things that you said when you and i both knew you didn’t mean them. and I forgive you for using me to try and fill the hole that she left in you. I forgive you for using me as a fix for your confidence because throughout everything all I ever saw was how great you are, and all you ever did was feed of that.

and now I forgive myself.
I forgive myself for everything that I put myself through. I forgive myself for letting myself believe that you really were the greatest part of me. I forgive myself for loving you when you weren’t worth a damn thought.

because after stepping away, I see it all so clearly now. After I accepted what I really was to you, everything else made more sense.
I destroyed myself in loving you and for that I am so sorry but when I say I forgive you, I mean I forgive myself, I forgive giving so much of myself to someone that didn’t care how my day was going. I forgive myself for all the hurt I endured.

—  I have to let go, and to do that I need to forgive.
To The Boy I Never Dated But Still Broke My Heart

Once upon a time you made me feel special. You gave me hope. For once I had self confidence. Just thinking someone as perfect as you would take time out of their day just to text me. I actually felt pretty for once. When you would tell me I looked cute or my outfit was cute I got butterflies. More than you could ever imagine. You, just being you, made me happy. I never thought of you just wanting me for my body, or anything like that. Mainly because of the way we talked. We talked like we were best friends that had known each forever. There was a few times where we had ran out of things to talk about but we always found something, even if it was the smallest thing. Like I said “once upon a time”. Well time always runs out eventually. When I noticed we were drifting I broke, I really did. I didn’t know I cared about you so much until you weren’t there as much. Whenever you started dating someone, I felt my heart break. I started crying, instead of making me happy you made me cry and break. I always act happy. I usually am. I just cared so much about you when you just kinda disappeared you took a piece of me with you.

I have written too much and too long about you hoping the words would bring you closer to me but they never did. I’m out of words now, I’m out of mind too. I forgot to think when the thoughts about you were coming to an end. Maybe loving you was the only thing I knew to do. Maybe writing about you was the only way I could continue breathing. Or maybe they were way to keep myself from moving on from you. I didn’t want to move on, to forget you but I did. I’m sorry but I don’t look for you anymore. I am finding myself now.
—  k.m

i feel sorry for you. i feel sorry that you lost someone who loved you so much, someone who would have burned themselves alive just to show you how bright they could shine for you - you will never find someone else who loves you that much. you can search the seven seas but there will never be anybody who will love you more than me.

you just realized it too late, that i was something worth keeping. you let your insecurities eat at you, thought you didn’t deserve someone as kind and loving as me. and if you were right about one thing, it would be that - you were never enough for me. you never made me feel completely fulfilled. you always destroyed me, never made me better, always made me worse.

and i will find someone who loves me more than you did. i will find someone who would go to the ends of the earth for me, the way i would have done for you. i will find someone who puts me first the way i put you first. i will find someone who treats me the way i treated you.

but you’ll never find someone who loves you more than me. and you lost me and that’s devastating.

—  i hope this breaks your heart

Length: 4607 words
Summary: Jungkook  wants to know what is your kink and he’s not backing up until you tell him.

DON’T FORGET TO SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS IN THE COMMENTS/REQUEST BOX~


Jungkook was soundly asleep like a child in the embrace of his mother with all of these fluffy white blankets wrapped around his toned body. This night and all the other ones have been keeping him restless with never ending requests and paper work to fill up. Coming back 3 AM or at dawn, Jungkook always got back at home around these unhealthy hours of the day. Slipping right next to you at night when he thought you wouldn’t notice his presence, yet you always did and you felt pained every time he sighed of tiredness. He wasn’t the type to openly complain about how hard it was becoming at some point. He might have been the hardworking type but looking at his dark circles, the way he gave you that tired smile, how he’d always ruffle your hair and tell everything was okay. You only felt like crying. Were you the one who made him like this? Was that tired sight of jungkook a result of marrying you? He could have been living dream of his life, up there on that stage yet he gave it up for his undying love towards you.

You rub your eyes before staring at the man right next you. His beautiful eyelashes shadowing his cheeks and the way his pink lips parted majestically to let out those cute whimpers and breaths. You may haven’t been able to see him much for a little while now but you still feel

“Jungkook…” you poke his arm

“T-Two…more…minutes…” He mumbles while pulling the blankets closer to his body

“Kookie-ah…” you pout at the sight of his pitiful sight “Are you that drained?” you sigh before brushing your fingers

“I love you” he mumbles

Your face soften up at those words.He may have been drained and tired with eye bags slowly reaching down his cheeks yet he’d still mention these three words. Did he loved you that much? Were you that worthy to be his? Were you worthy to be with a hardworking man like him? You couldn’t give him anything yet he was still there sleeping next to you. The only thought of it made harbor that pained expression on your face.

“Don’t be sad…” He mumbles once again without opening his eyes

He felt you would be pained like this. It’s not like he needed to open his eyes to know that you were hurting. He was your other half and he could feel you.

“I’m n-n-not!” you wipe that tear on the crease of your eyes

“I’ll always be by your side, so you shouldn’t cry” he makes himself more comfortable with his blankets before peeking out his hand out of the giant wrapping of blankets around his body

He holds out his larger hand to hold out his pinky and wrapping it around your own pinky.

“We promised to stay forever that day on the aisle and I’m never letting you go” he slowly opens his eyes to stare at you with the look of true love ( A/N: KILL ME I DID NOT JUST WRITE THIS ASDFGHJJKL)

You looked at him for a few seconds before that pained expression on your face turned a little more joyful as you stared back onto his eyes. The man closes his eyes to drift back to sleep and you smile. It wasn’t long before you analyzed him from head to toe. Jungkook may have been unaware of it, but he managed to make you smile even if he didn’t try. The way he looked like some sort of gigantic worm who appropriated all the blankets to itself almost made you laugh out loud. He looked so cuddly and fluffy like a gigantic neck pillow. You clamp a hand around your mouth because this sight of him is too cute and you can’t resist but giggle. You take out your phone and snap a few pictures.

“My giant little worm” you chuckled at yourself before you tap his cute nose

“Are you having that much fun?” his tired face stretches slightly into a smile as he keeps his eyes closed

“Yeah, you’re super cute” you give him a thumbs up before snapping more pictures “AND SO SQUISHY!!!!!” you poke the blankets

Jungkook wraps the blankets around his body tighter with a little grunt due to tiredness. He clenches his eyes shut tightly to keep on sleeping without getting disturbed. This action only made him look more like a little worm. You chuckled at this sight

“What’s so funny” he opens up his eyes to stare at you with a little resentful look

“You’re just so….” You struggle to keep yourself composed

“Stop laughing at me” he pouts before wrapping the blankets tighter around himself “I’m not talking to you anymore”

“Hey” you push him and his blankets with a smug look on your face “Why so serious?”

Your sudden little strength makes Jungkook rolls to the side of the bed. If it wasn’t for the last strength he had left in his body he would have fell on the floor.

“Why are you pushing me?” He turns around to give you that look of disbelief “Are you picking a fight? “His eyes shot open

“Yeah” you nod cutely

“Yeah??????” he tilts his head “Why fight first thing in the morning?” he makes that meme face before crouching his shoulders “Can’t we just cuddle or do something that requires less body strength” he kicks the blankets as he sits next to you “ And STOP LOOKING AT ME WITH THOSE EYES”

“What?” you blink

“Don’t feign innocence!” he pokes you “You obviously want something out of this!” he scoffs

“Am I being that obvious?” you hide your face in your hands

“Look at you being all shy” his eyes rounded “Was I scammed while getting into this?” he tilts his head while chuckling

“I’m not a scammer” you roll your eyes “You fell for the trap” you smirked “You got yourself into this, Jeon Jungkook” you whisper in his ear

“This girl” he shakes his head while chuckling “The marriage terms were that we’d stay together for the better to the worse huh?”

“I’m sure I can win against you” you cross your arms around your chest

“I’d like to believe that you’re a scam Y/N, but you’re way too innocent for this” he pulls on your cheek

“So what??! I still managed to GET YOU IN THE END” you stick out your tongue

“ Oh so you were that eager to get me in the end?” he tilts his head playfully “Seems like you were quite smitten over me” he pulls on the side of his collar in a sexy motion “ I mean….who wouldn’t ?” he gives you that seductive gaze before bursting into laughter

You blush a few shades before you scoff at his sudden behavior.

“Look at you going?” you scoff “you SEDUCED ME!” you cupped your cheeks in embarrassment

“Let me dig through this and figure out why you’re acting up this morning” he shifts closer before staring at you from head to toe

His large eyes looked at you innocently at first. Analyzing that messy hair and that bare face before he broke into a smile. It wasn’t long before his eyes travelled to the way that strap from your camisole fell on the side of your shoulder. He gulped before suppressing a low grunt that left his sinful lips at your delicious sight. His eyes travelled lower eyeing the way you were wearing only one of your favorite fuzzy socks, god only knows where the other was. Jungkook stares at you while being completely perplexed by this before voicing out his inner thought about what’s going on. He was feeling stuck in between lust and adoration.

“Did you woke me up to fight me?” he gives you that meme face

“No” you shake your head to the sides and that strap only fells lower from your shoulder

“You want a kiss this early in the morning?” He raises his brow before suddenly pulling your waist closer to collide against his sturdy body

“No it’s not that” you press your face on his shoulder to hide yourself

“What is it then?” he licks his bottom lip while trying to look at the ceiling and avoid any form of eye contact with your bare shoulder

You try figuring out an excuse to give him because you don’t want to sound too cheesy by telling him how much you yearned and missed him for the past few weeks. It was never your style to try surrender to jungkook and admitting things like these.

“I like picking on you” you stare up at him cutely

His reaction was different than what you expected.

“You like bullying me?” he blinks at you before that smirk reached his lips soon enough “Is that the birth of a new kink that I’m seeing?” he tilts his head playfully

“N-NO WAY!!!” you cover your face in shame at the word kink

“Finally! AFTER MONTHS OF MARRIAGE I FINALLY FIGURED OUT SOMETHING YOU WANT” he brings his fist up in a celebratory motion

“Hey!!! WHAT ARE YOU SAYING” panic shots through you as you punch his arm “Stop saying nonsense!!!!?Who said I want this???!!” you turn a few shades of red

“Oh MY god….” He stops to stare at you “Babe….” He gasps while staring at the arm you just punched

“W-What?” you stuttered

“ I always thought of him as my own personal hero. You know, like how some girls think of their dads. Except I never felt that way about ours since he’s…well, our father. When things got rough, though, I could always rely on Xander. And, it’s true, he always smiled then, and he used to laugh so much. But sometimes people have to change to become who they’re destined to be. He’s had to shoulder so much…there’s no way he could stay the boy he was. And if he did, he wouldn’t be the man we needed to lead us. ” ( — Elise to Arthur )

At first, my reaction was that I was bummed for myself. But the more I thought about it, I was like, “Wes! F—-n’ Wes, man! The poor guy! This is too much!” That’s what started to get me down. Tragedy upon tragedy. When you list it all like you just did, it’s like, “What the hell? Come on!” I mean, he never caught a break, did he? He was with Laurel, and that was so good for him. He was edging closer to that happy ending he was chasing. I think he did find happiness in a way, but that’s reality, you’re never really out of the woods, are you?

Dating websites and apps had become your best friend recently. Specially an app called Tinder. You create a profile, maybe lie about your age and then it’s only a matter of which way you swipe. It was pathetic really, but your friends has convinced you to make a profile. They said you could use some action. You thought the idea was ludacris, but now, you were kinda glad you did.

You had met a guy. You were a tad bit scared, to be honest, as you’ve never actually met up with a guy like this before. You knew there were many creeps on those sites, but something in you, and also your friends, told you to meet this guy. You had a good feeling about this, but you were also nervous, butterflies fluttered in your tummy.

The guy’s profile said his name was James, a very sweet name, you thought. He also had a picture of him on the app. The picture threw you off at first. It was a black and white photograph of him, presumably, in military clothes? The picture was cropped below the shoulders but you could still see the sharp edges of his outfit. Your grandfather was a Sargeant back in the day and you had seen pictures of him in his uniform, so you recognized one when you saw it. But the more you looked at the picture, the more in love you fell with it. You concluded that maybe it was just a picture taken at a costume party.

The girl you'll never get over

Don’t be friends with her
After you’ve broken up and walked away
Its better that you leave her there
In that moment when everything went astray

Because if you take her with you
You’ll keep looking for her face in every girl you meet
No laugh will ever be as joyful as hers
And nobody will make your soul sing the way she did

You let her go without a fight
Now she’s gone
And with her went everything that was bright
You didn’t look back then
Hurtful and proud
And she wasn’t the one to beg
But her teary eyes were screaming so loud

Now you remember how her kisses made you feel
How tenderly she touched your scars and all the hurt began to heal
But you’ve moved on now
With someone who looks nothing like her

So it’s better to leave her there
In memories that can be cherished forever
If it’s meant to be you’ll meet again
And this time you’ll treat her better
But deep down you’ll always remember
As the girl you’ll never get over

Staring at the ceiling
He sighs,
Thinking about how
He let her slip away
With tears in his eyes
And regret in his heart
He realizes no one could ever love him
The way she did.

Q: How can you be so heartbroken over someone you never even dated?

A: Because you never even dated. Because they never even gave you the chance. Because every argument, they threw “we’re not even dating” in your face like clockwork and you didn’t have anything to combat their words with. Because they left so easily and you couldn’t even complain. Because they didn’t give you the chance to be angry, to ask questions, to show pain; they didn’t want to hold your emotions in their palms; they made you hold them alone because they didn’t want you. And that’s what hurts so badly about people you never even dated: they wanted your body or your funny jokes or their name in hearts on your notebooks or the way your hair fell in your face so perfectly, it flashed light in their pupils when the sun came out, but they didn’t want all of you. And you thought they did. You told yourself a million times that you shouldn’t be feeling these things, that you’re not even dating, that you are silly for falling for them. But you fell for them over and over again, every time following the times you told yourself not to. And you thought maybe they were falling for you too.

Q: How can you be so heartbroken over someone you never even dated?

A: Because you are asking me that question. Because my feelings have been invalidated over and over again just because we weren’t dating. Because now it’s summer and he up and left and I’m not even allowed to be upset.

—  How can you be so heartbroken over someone you never even dated?

imagine keith seeing a sad lance and having the desire of comforting him without knowing how to properly do it, so he resolves in shooting random compliments he never thought he could personally say out loud.

“listen i think you’re really great. like…super great. like….awesome. did i say great already? but i mean it. really. I love you—-r way of handling things. for real. you’re really pretty—-GOOD AT FIGHTING! yeah that’s about it….I like you—-r personality a lot….ahah….did i…fucking stutter”

lance looks at him and chuckles because he’s really happy keith made an effort to cheer him up even if he’s kinda left wondering Keith meant more to what He was saying

We were children engulfed in our innocence.
We never measured risks, never thought about a future we were never fully ready to commit to.
I loved you at a time where love was the only thing I knew how to harvest hope in.
I placed too many dreams in your empty hands, too many expectations for the things I wished we’d become.
We never did become.
You went on with your life as best as you could and in my own ways I did too.
Sometimes I still think of you.
The war we fought with the world for something we both knew wouldn’t last.
The battlefield we stood on opposite sides of and how much of our saving came from the disassembling of everything good that we were.
I took your innocence.
Somewhere you are still running with mine.
We could never get back who we were then.
No matter how hard we’ve both tried.
I look at you and your walls are higher than the last time I ran hurdles over them.
I don’t speak openly about love anymore.
Sometimes I still think of you.
I hope you know that there is still a thousand things that drag me next to you.

A Fond Farewell

                                       Elliott Smith – A Fond Farewell


Something changed in Dean the day you met Lucifer. The shift was almost imperceptible, the subtle gleam of sadness in his eyes when he looked at you, the way he stared when he thought you weren’t looking, as if trying to memorize tiny aspects of you that he worried he was already forgetting. Anyone who didn’t know Dean intimately wouldn’t have caught the signs, but you did, and you suspected Sam did as well, though the two of you never spoke of it.

You’d joined the boys on a hunt, despite their protests at how you were far too calm about the idea of coming face to face with Lucifer. While you should have been terrified beyond measure, the mere thought of him oddly possessed a calming quality to it, one that had you far too curious to leave unexplored. The moment your eyes fell upon him, his tattered wings hanging around his frame, glowing like the vestiges of a fire about to burn out, you wept. You crumpled to your knees, staring at him with an ache in your heart that you couldn’t explain. Everyone around you was too stunned to react, though Lucifer was perhaps the most perplexed of all. He watched you, faint traces of sadness, surprise, anger, and curiosity flexed over his face before he vanished, leaving you to deal with the Winchesters onslaught of questions as they had to drag you back out to the car.

Trying to explain yourself after that was next to impossible. The day after the incident, Dean was withdrawn, quieter than normal and when Sam remarked his surprise at his brother’s supposed lack of care towards your reaction, he seemed to piece together that something was amiss. You dodged Sam’s questions, not understanding the reaction yourself, but as the days passed, it all started to come together.

Now here you were again with Sam and Dean, only now Lucifer was at your guard, standing behind you and ready to intercede should he feel the need to. You’d previously heard little of angels and their soulmates, but now that you knew the full power of what that entailed, you knew that you had little choice in the matter. Even if you did, this was unequivocally the choice you would have made.

Dean had put on a brave face, but it was faltering quickly, the cracks in his rough exterior letting his emotions trickle out in a sorrowful stream. You hurt him, and though it wasn’t intended, you knew where you needed to be, and that was beside Lucifer.

“You take care of yourself, alright?” Dean said gruffly, trying to smile through the torment he was putting himself through. You knew Dean blamed himself, blamed himself for bringing you before the Devil in the first place, only to ultimately lose you to him.

You nodded, searching his gaze for something, anything you could possibly say to ease the pain you were putting him through, but there was nothing.

“I’ll be okay, Dean” you reassured, wishing you could reach out and touch him, but thought better of it.

Thoughts danced behind his eyes, a look that told you he had something to say but didn’t want to. You knew what it was and you nodded, urging him to speak the words that perhaps hurt him the most as you bit back the sob in your throat.

“You be good” he said, and though the phrase may have sounded innocent and caring, with his half smile and saddened eyes, you knew the meaning behind it.

Dean was a hunter, one dedicated to his job and if that meant saving the world from any threat, he was up for it. With you at Lucifer’s side, you might be that threat. Lucifer’s hand rested on your shoulder and you smiled warily at Dean. Your will broke and you pulled him into a hug, feeling Lucifer stiffen slightly behind you. Dean’s arms wrapped tightly around you, squeezing you as if you satisfy the fact that he would likely never get the chance to hold you again.

“You hurt her, in any way, and I’ll come for you. I’ll fucking kill you” he said over your shoulder to Lucifer, his jaw tensing as rage began to prickle through him.

Lucifer huffed a short, humorless laugh as you released Dean, stepping back and away from him as your fingers found Lucifer’s and laced through them.

You’d wanted to tell him that you hoped to see him around, but in reality, if you did, it was likely not going to be on good terms, so instead you kept quiet, silently promising that you would be okay and everything was fine.

“Goodbye, Dean” was the only words that came to you, tears dripping from your eyes, hating yourself for hurting him.

I used to be pretty, when you thought I was,
I’m not pretty anymore because you never compliment me,
I’m not good anymore because you don’t talk to me as often.
I’m sorry and I’m sorry..
It’s not as if things are going horribly;
I could go either way any minute, and I was trying so hard to be healthy until I heard you were back on drugs and I decided I didn’t care about life anymore I just want to relapse and I did,
I was trying to beat my eating disorder because you said I wasn’t healthy, but then I heard
you liked skinny girls
I wanted to wake up to see the sun rise and stay up to see it set until I saw you slept most of the day away
I was going to get a GED until you went to college
I was good before you said you liked bad.
I was bad until you said I was good. I’m so sorry.
