The gifset of Dean giving himself that little pep talk from 7x04 inspired me to write this. Dean x Reader, Dean’s POV. Hope you like :)
For fuck’s sake, Dean, you’ve done this a thousand times. You can
charm a woman without even breaking a sweat. Why are you so damn
Because, dumbass, it’s Y/N. This time it’s not some random bar
chick that I’ll probably never lay eyes on again. And I don’t
want to mess things up. I don’t want to do something that’ll make
everything all awkward.
I just want… I just want to be with her. Whatever that means. And I
don’t even know how to say that without making things all fucking
Just tell her the truth. Well, the surface truth. Say you’re bored.
Take a chance.
She doesn’t need to know you hate being in a separate room from
her, that you miss being around her. That you feel not all there when
she’s not around, like a piece is missing. That you’re dying to
touch her. Like really touch her.
Okay. Here’s her door. Just heard a noise, so you know she’s
awake. So knock already.
The members are having a movie night with you at the dorm. You’re watching a horror movie. Imagine there is a couch with 4 seats and two armchairs.
- he’s sitting on the couch, on the left side with Hoseok on his right side - “y/n ! you choose the movie !” - brings all the snacks : popcorn, m&ms, etc… - looks at you from time to time to see if you’re having fun - isn’t really scared of the movie but he will sometimes do his “aaaah” sounds followed by his loud laugh when there’s a screamer - grabs your hand “by mistake” while you’re both reaching for some popcorn
- sitting on the couch, in between Jin and you. - screams and jumps every time there’s a screamer (gif) - “y/n why did you chose this movie ? what’s wrong with you ?!” - holds the popcorn on his laps and makes it fall on the floor when he jumps - is too scared to go alone in the kitchen to make some more popcorn. “y/n, can you come with me ? I’m too scared” - would grab your arm and hide his face when he’s scared
- sitting on the right side of the couch, with you on his left side - you are both sharing a blanket, he has his arm around your shoulder, you’re laying your head on his chest - laughs at you every time you get scared - you sometimes catch him staring a you, making him feel embarrassed - he focuses more on you than on the movie - you hide your face in his chest when you get scared “You’re so cute when you’re scared”, teases you while doing his bunny smile (gif) - plays with your hair or caresses your thigh
- he would sit on the floor, his back against the couch - gets jealous of Jungkook because he wants to be next to you - he tries to act brave and cocky in front of you but his still scared from time to time - hides his face when there’s too much blood (gif) - screams at the characters in the movie “RUN !”“DON’T GO THERE!” “YOU”RE GOING TO DIE IF YOU GO THERE” - turns around to laugh at you when you scream
- he’s sitting on the floor, his back against one of the armchairs where Namjoon is sitting - he would ask a ton of questions, “why is he going there ?”, “I don’t get it”, “wait, is she dead?” - he would easily get bored so he would throw a pillow at you, or food to tease you. He would also do it to the other members, especially Yoongi to annoy him. - he wouldn’t be scared while watching the movie but once its finish he would think about it and get scared. “What was that sound ? y/n can you sleep with me tonight ?”
- sitting on one of the armchairs - would laugh at how stupid the characters are. “ahah she’s so dumb, she’s going to die for sure” - would chuckle every time you got scared (gif) - “y/n, it’s not even that scary” - would already find out who the murderer is before the movie ends
- sitting on the other armchair - would fall asleep at the beginning of the movie - would wake up when you would scream - “ya, y/n, I’m going to murder you next time you wake me up” - would secretly find you cute when you were screaming or hiding your face in your hands - “Next time, I’ll sit next to you, you’ll scream less knowing you’re with me”
Okay but since Percy lives in New York, I can he and Annabeth taking a lot of trips into New York City, and whenever they go into the city Percy forces them into the M&M store so he can get all the different blue M&Ms, and Annabeth secretly thinks its adorable.
Noctis: He rents out the whole projection room, it doesn’t matter what it has to be the biggest and fanciest room too. He’s actually fine with whatever and not rent out the room but the people at the theater insist on doing it for him. He prefers to see the summer block buster the biggest action flicks and the best buddy cop films. He has a weak spot for the romantic comedies. Enjoys popcorn, soda and nachos with extra cheese.
Prompto: He is a movie buff, arrives early stays until the credits has ended. Prompto sees all the major block busters and the random indie ones that made it big at Sundance. He’s more for story line than famous actors in the movies. Since he goes to the movies a lot he goes to the morning matinee to save money though certain movies he goes for the midnight showing for the ambiance. Totally dresses up for major events and plays trivia while waiting. Red vines, blue raspberry icee, popcorn, non-parils, m&ms all the candies.
Gladiolus: He’s big on seeing them on days off specially late at night. Scary movies, action flicks, comedies and war flicks are his things. He laughs the loudest when things are funny, watches the credits to make sure it’s the actor he thought it was, sings to all the songs he knows in the movies. Don’t go see a action flick with him, he talks during the fight scenes to tell you what is inaccurate and he talks loudly. “That would have broken all of his ribs right there!” Popcorn, water, smuggled in beer and gummy worms.
Ignis: Premiere night only, sees all the broadcasts of the Broadway shows done in the cinema, writes theater as “theatre” and calls it the cinema instead of movies. Enjoys romantic dramas, biopics, history films and guilty pleasure of slap stick comedies. Buys wine from the bar, popcorn and andes mints.
Ravus: Goes to the movies a lot and only during matinee times because it’s generally quiet. Comedies, thrillers, anime specials, indie, horror flicks, he likes movies. They know him at the theater as “that bishie” (Though some mishear and think “that bitch”) he shows up early doesn’t talk to anyone they just know his order at the concession stand. Popcorn, cherry icee, junior mints, non-parils and m&ms. He has a frequent user card but generally forgets it. (they remember his phone number and just key it in.) Ravus has a special spot to sit at every room all according to how well the room is for the perfect sound and good viewing ability. If you are nice and stuck behind him and can’t see he might move but without giving you a sneer, if you off him a red vine he will move.
Cor: Goes to the movies like once every other month doesn’t have time for it so he goes to whatever showing available when he’s available. So it can either be super crowded or dead empty. Cor just gets water and popcorn with a lot of butter on it and a giant handful of napkins. Eats the majority of popcorn during the previews. Has fallen asleep in the movies. Goes to see whatever is reccommended to him so it’s generally action flicks and “based on true events” stories. Has a secret love for musicals. (Has a slight passion for There Will Be Blood, Matthew Mercer I’ll will never let you live down the wonderful There Will Be Brawl series!)
Nyx: Has gone to the theater to watch porn. Like Cor he goes whenever he has free time so there is no set time though he prefers nighttime showings. Loves horror films, comedies and a guilty pleasure of sappy chick flicks. (HE DID NOT CRY DURING THE NOTEBOOK!) Smuggles in all the foods, goes to the Dollar Store and buys all the cheap candies, soda and hits up the grocery store to get the popcorn they pop there. Talks during the movie about other random stuff that he thought about from that previous scene. Laughs at all the jokes really loudly.
So this is for @winchesters-favorite-girl 1 year celebration. I chose the prompt. “You’ll always have me.” And i know its not great but im just happy i finally managed to get something out. And Happy one year to you Katie!
JJ just has to reach a little bit farther to reach the monkey bar. Hanging from one arm she reaches to grab the other monkey bar, missing it she falls to the sand covered ground of the park. Wiping her hands off on her shorts she feels someone poke her in the shoulder.
“You’re it.” Turning around she sees one of her best friends, Olivia smiling at her.
“That isn’t fair, you sneaked up on me,” She grumbles.
“Is to fair. I can tag anyone that isn’t on the playground.”
They continue to argue, until they hear their teacher Mrs. Jones call the kids back into class for lunch. Grabbing their lunch boxes they sit down at their favorite table with their other friends.
“What do you have for lunch JJ?” Olivia asked, looking into her lunch box.
“My daddy is home, so he packed me lunch.” Pulling out a bag of chips, a yogurt tube, m&ms, a fruit juice, a cookie and a PB&J cut to look like a horse. “That means all good stuff.” The kids at her table stare in jealousy at the food she had, most of them having some type of sandwich (not shaped like a horse) a fruit box and some kind of fruit.
“Wow I wish my Dad would give me food like that.” Matt said as he reached for her m&ms. All the kids agreeing with Matt.
“Yeah my dad’s pretty cool, I just wish he was around more so he could always make me lunches.” She muttered as she grabbed her food from Matt.
“Hey JJ do you think we could have a sleepover party tomorrow? My momma said we could if yours said yes.” Olivia asked hoping to cheer her friend up a bit, from thinking about her dad. JJ nodded her head in agreement, the two of them had been friends since the first ever day of school, often spending night over at each others houses.
Daneel Ackles was one of the best moms out there, JJ knew that she wouldn’t have a problem with letting her go over to her friends house. Arriving home JJ runs into the living room, looking for her mom. “Momma, Olivia ask me if i could sleep at her house tomorrow. Can I please?” She asks jumping up on the couch with her mom.
“Of course you can. Me or Dad can take you over after your sister’s party.”
JJ grabs onto her mom’s arms as she lifts her up. “Party? What for, is it like my birthday party?”
Daneel chuckles, “No it’s for your sister because she’s got into the college she wanted.”
Three months ago you had applied to five different colleges, but there was one in particular that you wanted to go to more than the rest. Then last week you had opened the mailbox to see a letter from the college, you spent ten minutes trying to gather the courage to open it. Finally your mom and dad helped you open it up, skipping right to the bottom to see if you got in. You danced around with them, your dad picked you up and spun you around while your mom went to go check on the twins.
Daneel had wanted to do a party for you, as a congratulations and as a going away party. You had told JJ that you had gotten into the college you wanted when she walked into the kitchen to see you all dancing. Assuming that she understood what that meant. The only problem with the college is that it was in a different state, meaning you had to move into a dorm and you wouldn’t be able to see them every day.
“Are you talking about your favorite sister.” You said, as you walked into the house. JJ squirmed in Daneel’s arms wanting to go over to you. You laughed as she collided into your legs, wrapping her arms around them.
“Oh wow I see, no one cares about dad hugh.” Jensen said as he walked in behind you.
JJ giggled at her Dad, “I love you Daddy,” Daneel awed. “Just not as much as Y/n” You snorted trying to hold in your laughter, one look at your dad though made you double over with laughter.
“I taught you well, youngling.” Picking her up, you headed to your bedroom with her. “Come on you can help me with some homework.” Turning around you stuck your tongue out at him.
As you were leaving the room you heard your dad say, “My two oldest have turned against me.”
Running down the stairs in her party dress, JJ headed straight for the cake table. Reaching for a plate she felt someone pick her up. “What do you think you’re doing huh. Who said you could have cake?” You laughed as she struggled trying to get some cake.
“I said i could have cake,” she crossed her arms, pretending to be mad.
“Well i guess since you said you could have cake,” Putting her down, you grabbed her a plate and a fork. “There you go, just make sure you don’t get it all over your dress.” She nodded her head, already shoving spoonfuls in her mouth.
“Come on JJ, we gotta go now if we want to get to your friends house before dark.” Jensen yelled from across the room. JJ walked over to him, eating her last bit of cake. “Do you have all your stuff.”
“Momma put it in the car.”
“Alright let’s go then.”
Jensen walked JJ to the front door, Olivia’s mom opens the door for them.
“I’ll be back tomorrow morning to pick her up, if you need me to come get her before then just call.” Jensen says, giving Olivia’s mom JJ’s sleeping bag. Kneeling down to JJ he tells her to be good and not cause any trouble, before watching her run into the house looking for Olivia.
Even though they saw each other at school a few hours ago, they were still bouncy and giggly when they saw each other. Heading into Olivia’s room they grabbed as many dolls and action figures as they could find, before continuing the game they played last sleepover. An hour later Olivia’s Mom calls them to come eat. “Well JJ don’t you look adorable in your dress.”
“Thank you Mrs. Olivia’s mom. We had a party for my sissy, cause she got into the collage.”
“Oh really how exciting.” She replies, before the girls grab their dinner and head into the dining room.
“I remember when my brother got to go to college, he didn’t come back for ever. I missed him really bad, but he came for christmas and my birthday.”
JJ looked puzzled, “What do you mean, he didn’t come back?”
“Last year he moved out and lived at college, he only came during the holidays. But the good thing I got to put toys in his room. I’m gonna get juice.” Olivia left leaving JJ to wonder why her sister was leaving.
The rest of the night JJ couldn’t find it in herself to be happy, she couldn’t stop thinking about the fact that her sister was leaving.
In the morning you decided to pick up JJ, letting your parents sleep in. Mrs. Porter opened up the door for you letting you in. “The girls should be down in a minute, they were up late last night. So i heard you got into college.”
“Yup I leave in two weeks.”
“That will be such a good experience, i remember how Matt was when he moved out.”
Olivia and JJ walk into the kitchen where you were talking to Mrs. Porter. “Got everything JJ?” She nodded her head, not meeting your eyes. “Alright let’s get going i have some stuff i have to get done, thank you for letting her stay over.” Walking out of the house JJ walked a couple feet behind, scuffing her shoes against the ground.
Pulling into the garage you turn off the car, JJ gets out of the car before you could turn around to talk to her. “What in the world.” you mumble to yourself, wondering what could have made her act like that. Ever since she was born you two had been best friends, even though you were thirteen years older than her.
“Hey did you see JJ come in?” You ask your dad as you lock the door behind you.
“Yea, she went up to her room. She okay, she looked angry.”
“I don’t know, she hasn’t said a word to me since the party last night.” Concerned that something had happened to her at her friend’s house you headed upstairs to check on her. Knocking on the door, you opened it slowly. “Hey you in here?” Noticing a lump on her bed you sat down next to it.
“Go away.” She moved as far away as she could get from you.
“Hey, what’s wrong? You don’t get to be angry at me, and then tell me to go away.” Trying to pull down the covers she grabbed on to them, not allowing them to move. “Did something happen at the sleepover? JJ you know you can tell me anything.” Finally she ripped the covers down.
“Why are you leaving me?” She cried out.
“Leaving you? JJ what do you mean?” She sat up, crossing her arms and glaring at you.
“Olivia said her brother left because of collage. And you’re going to collage, meaning you’re gonna leave too. And we had a party for you. Why are you leaving me.” This whole time you assumed that JJ understood that you were leaving, and that she was fine with it. Now you realized how wrong you were, her confession breaking your heart.
“Oh JJ I’m so sorry.” You said pulling her into your arms. “I thought you knew, i guess i never told you though. Baby just because I’m going to college doesn’t mean that we can’t talk everyday.”
She looks up at you, “What do you mean?”
“Well we can skype everyday, and i promise i will come back to visit as many times as i can. And just think every time i visit i’ll bring you a present.” She smiles at the mention of presents. “JJ i know it’s hard because we won’t be living in the same house anymore, but i promise you’ll always have me.” Reaching up she wraps her arms around your neck, hugging you tight.
“You promise.” Patting her on her back you say, “I promise, now why don’t you head downstairs, I hear that there’s a ton of leftover cake.” Bouncing out off the bed and out of the room, you follow behind her.
“That was sweet.” Your dad stood by the twins room. “I was checking on them when i heard you two talking.” Walking over to you he leaned down and pulled you into a hug. “And i think it’s something i needed to hear too.”
Pulling away you stare at him, “What do you mean?”
“It’s just hard knowing that soon you’ll be a couple states away, living by yourself. I mean just yesterday you were the same age as JJ, and now. And in no time JJ will be gone too.”
“Dad…” You didn’t know how to respond to that, because he was gone most of the year you figured it would be like any other day. “It’s alright, like i told JJ i’ll be back as much as i can.”
He nods and sniffles, “Alright no chick flick moments.” You chuckle at that. “Now did i hear something about cake?”
“Yeah but you might want to hurry, I think JJ might have eaten all by now.”
You laugh as he bolts down the stairs, before realizing that there would be no cake for you once he got down there.
Nico had been living with Will for three and a bit weeks and in that time Will had never invited anyone one else round to their home. It was therefore a surprise when he woke up one morning and found a stranger in the kitchen. The stranger was wildly attractive, even with sleep messed hair. He was also shirtless.
Nico stared at the stranger. The stranger stared back.
“What up,” the stranger said by way of greeting.
Nico, not always rude but also definitely not a morning person, continued staring blankly in total incomprehension.
Will came out of his room then, thankfully not shirtless because Nico definitely would not have been able to deal with that, but looking incredibly rumpled and not at all with it. Will stopped and looked between Nico and the stranger. For some reason he seemed mildly alarmed. He must have thrown on clothes very quickly because his sweatpants were inside out and his tshirt was back to front. His hair was a complete mess too, more so than usual like he’d been running his hands through -
And finally it dawned on Nico what was going on and he couldn’t believe he had been so slow but he at least managed to stop himself blurting oh my god out loud.
After the war, Locus ends up spending his days on Hawaii, where he meets Kai and Grif. Nothing will ever be the same.
I had a lot of Grif feelings after this season, and his dynamic with Locus was INCREDIBLE. So I threw around an AU where Locus got redeemed pre-Chorus through the power of Kai and Grif being a family. I got a shocking amount of support for it, but put it in a drawer because I had too much going on. Fastforward to now, add in a very encouraging @sroloc–elbisivni, and well. Here we are.
Locus doesn’t like this city. It’s loud, cramped, and swamped with
tourists. Most are civilian tourists, but others are like Locus. He sees
uniforms out of the corner of his eye, recognizes the postures and scars on
others. Some are on leave. Those ones tend to gather in groups.
And a few are like
him. No home to go to after their tours ended, so when asked to be dropped off,
they picked somewhere unlike the war. Somewhere bright and sunny and beautiful.
Hawaii had been
Felix’s idea, when they had gone their separate ways. For a moment, Locus had
thought that Felix was going to suggest they return to their old ways, to the
bounty circuit. But Siris wasn’t interested, and without Siris, there was no
reason for them to stay together. Siris had gone home, to Megan and his
children. Felix had things to take care of. Locus had nothing.
Here ya go! I hope you enjoy it! (Also thank you this is one of my fav ships of all time)
It was the end of the month, and both Evan and Tyler were excited. The two had started a tradition of watching a movie together at the end of every month, and so far, they had loved everytime.
Tyler stood outside of Evan’s door, waiting for Evan to hurry up.
“If you don’t get your ass out here, I’m gonna leave without you!” Tyler joked.
“I’m coming, I’m coming,” came Evan’s muffled voice. He opened the door and smiled at Tyler. “Ready?”
“Are you seriously asking me after it took a week for you to get ready?”
“Shut up, it was only like, a minute or two. Now come on, let’s go.” Tyler rolled his eyes before dragging Evan out of his apartment and to his car.
“What movie are we watching?” Evan asked as they got to the theater.
“I was thinking the John Wick movie. That good with you?” Evan nodded, and they got their tickets. Evan grabbed their seats as Tyler got the snacks: one large popcorn with extra butter, two medium drinks and a bag of m&ms for Evan’s sweet tooth.
“I swear, your teeth are gonna rot out of your head if you keep eating those,” Tyler said as he handed the bag to Evan.
“Says the guy who orders extra butter on his popcorn.”
“Hey, I paid for it, so shut up.”
They both laughed and settled down, making fun of the commercials before the movie actually started.
Surprisingly, there weren’t as many people as they thought there would be. There were a couple of other people on the other side of the theater and a couple that sat a few rows in front of them.
Half way through the movie, half of the popcorn was gone and all of M&Ms were eaten.
The couple a few rows in front of them had obviously gotten bored with the movie, as they were now busy with each other. Evan and Tyler were now very annoyed with them, as they couldn’t focus on the movie with the moans of the couple.
“I swear, if they keep at it, I’m going to shoot myself,” Tyler groaned. Evan nodded and looked at Tyler’s popcorn.
“Can I see that for a second?” Tyler handed him the popcorn silently. Evan grabbed a piece and threw it at the couple. Evan frowned when they didn’t stop and grabbed a handful before throwing it at the couple.
Tyler covered his mouth and held back a laugh. The couple stopped for a second before returning to what they were doing previously. Tyler took back the popcorn, grabbed a handful of popcorn before throwing the entire bucket down there. The girl screeched, getting up and getting the popcorn out of her hair.
Evan and Tyler burst out laughing, holding onto each other to keep themselves up. The couple left quickly after that. By the time Evan and Tyler had calmed down, the movie had ended. They left the theater, still laughing about the whole ordeal. “I was, I was not expecting you to throw the entire bucket, oh my god,” Evan said in between giggles.
“You started it by throwing the first piece,” Tyler shot out, laughing afterwards.
“I’m surprised they didn’t kick us out,” Evan replied as they left the theater.
“I’m glad they didn’t though,” Tyler said as they got into the car.
“Yeah… I don’t think we can ever top this visit,” Evan chuckled.
“Probably not,” Tyler agreed, “but either way, that was awesome and I can’t wait until next month.” Evan laughed, and they continued to talk about the movie until they got home.
When they did, they just ended up playing video games together until they passed out on the couch and on top of each other.
Here’s this, finally, sorry this took so long! I’ve been catching up on stuff lately. I have one more long scenario, three au’s (one of which is Minghao), and another Day6 reaction before I’m opening up requests, and I’m going to try and get most of it done tonight (I’m very ambitious), BUT ANYWAYS, here’s the thing :3
You sighed happily as you stood there in Minghao’s arms for
“I missed you.” You mumbled against his chest.
“Missed you too, baobei. Ready for the movie?” He leaned
back to smile at you.
“Yep, got the snacks.” You reply, brandishing grocery bag
filled with goodies of both sweet and salty varieties. The two of you waddled
on into the living room and you curled up on the couch as he grabbed the remote
from the coffee table and then sunk back into the cushions to sling his arm
over your shoulder. Once the play button had been pressed, you two hunkered
down under a cozy blanket with some popcorn and m&ms. All through the
movie, you leaned on his shoulder and focused as well as you could. But you’d
already seen this movie twice before, so while you enjoyed it, the late time
and the tiring day you’d had started to sink in, causing you to sink further
and further into drowsiness as the movie neared its end. By the time the
credits started rolling. Minghao was laying down on his side against the back
of the couch and you were laying in front of him while his arm rested over your
side and his chin rested against the top of your head. Neither of you moved to
turn off the dvd player, and by the time it went into sleep mode on its own,
you were both still just lying there, enjoying each other’s company. You had
closed your eyes a little while ago, and were just beginning to doze off.
“Hmm” He hummed lazily. You could feel the sound vibrating
against your head through his chin and it made you chuckle.
“Can you sing something?”
He was silent for a moment, and you could practically feel
him start to blush a little.
“Hmmm” You mumbled questioningly, wondering what was wrong.
“I don’t know..”
“Why not? I love your voice.”
“You’ve only ever heard it on our finished songs.”
“Yeah, and it’s so sweet. I love it.” You chirped quietly in
“But it’s different in real life, it’s not autotuned.”
“I’m sure I’ll love it.”
“How do you know?”
“Because I love you, silly.” With that, you turned around to
face him and kissed his cheek before you nuzzled into his chest and closed your
eyes again. “Please?”
He chuckled at your cuteness and caved to your request,
though the pink tint to his cheeks remained. So, he started to gently hum the
opening notes to I’m with You by Brother Su. At the beginning, his voice was
very tentative, but as it continued and you snuggled closer into him, enjoying
the sound and the rumbling you could feel in his chest, he became more sure of
himself and worked up to a gentle, soothing rhythm of the sweet melody carried
by his equally sweet voice. As he approached the final chorus, you leaned up to
kiss right under his jaw before snuggling back into his arms and dozing off
once again. The final note blended in with the sound of your breathing, and he
looked down as he felt your chest rise and fall as you napped. He smiled down
at you, and murmured gently into your hair.
“Well if this is what happens when I sing, maybe I should do
it more often.”
Uh, I may have been a little to excited about this; because I literally finished my fic challenge like two days after it was posted. This is for @narisjournal-blog and her 300 follower challenge!
My prompt was #317, which will be bold in the story.
Summary: You and Rob only meant to get back at your friends for the years of jokes and teasing they put you through. When you agreed to help Rob, you didn’t realize he’d take it this far.
Word Count: 7272
No pairing, just Rob x Reader centered
Warnings: swearing, minor injury
Note:I feel like this might be set up weird. You’re basically starting with a conversation on Sunday to get the basic set up of the story; then going back to the beginning of the weekend. The story will end up on Sunday Afternoon following the Sunday morning discussion. Hopefully that makes sense.LOL! Also, titles are not my forte.
“Before I started this, you told me you would have my back - no matter what,” Rob said in a hushed voice.
“I know and I’m sorry. But this is getting out of hand and I just can’t do this anymore.”
“You don’t get to walk out on me now, that’s not how this works. I won’t let you.” Rob said firmly. He placed a hand over yours, trying to calm you as he could probably sense your anxiety in the moment.
“P-please, Rob. We can’t keep doing this. This isn’t what I agreed to.”
“You agreed to help me, no matter what. We agreed to help each other.”
“But, not to this extent. I didn’t know it was all going to turn into this!” You freed your hand from his, waving both arms about wildly to emphasize the complete and utter disaster you were both finding yourselves in.
“Regardless of what you expected, this is where we are. There’s no turning back now.”
“We’re going to get caught, you know that, right? They’ll all know it was us.” You tried to make him realize that eventually, all of this was going to catch up with you. There were a handful of your fellow actors and friends at this convention, it would only be a matter of time before they began to weed each other out as the suspects, leaving you and Rob as the only possible answer to the chaos that was now rapidly unfolding.
“We’re too far in this to back out now,” he reminded you.
“You told me it was just going to be one day,” you sputtered, “one day and then we’d stop. What is wrong with you? How did I let you talk me into this?”
“It was only supposed to be one day, but I am so tired of how much they all mess with me. I’m always the butt of the joke, the one they pick on. Don’t tell me that you don’t get sick of it too.”
“Sure, I do… but don’t you think we’re handling this all wrong? Don’t you think this has gone too far?”
“No.” Rob stated, face red out of what was almost something like anger. You hadn’t realized until now how deeply offended Rob had been by the constant joking and pranks that the others had put him through this weekend. For some reason, they had gotten worse, leaving Rob in a constant state of panic over every little thing. You assumed it had a lot to do with Halloween coming just around the corner; the usual practical jokes and teasing had increased in the green room and on stage, almost all of those being aimed directly at Rob and yourself. You had already endured multiple embarrassments on Thursday; fake spiders in your bag, cheese still wrapped in plastic in your sandwich at lunch, even Skittles mixed in with your bowl of M&Ms. All of it had been cruel; but you knew that Rob received even worse. You actually had to stop him when he began to tell you that someone had managed to get into his hotel room and covered the toilet bowl with plastic wrap.
All of this was your own faults really. The two of you had always been picked on; on set and at conventions. It was as if you were just easy targets and everyone knew it. You hated how gullible you were, and you were sure Rob hated that about himself as well.
“Rob…” you trailed off for a moment, thinking hard about the situation that the two of you had gotten yourself into, “I’m afraid we’ll get caught. When we do, they’re going to be even worse to us.”
“They haven’t caught us yet, especially since we’ve pitted them against each other,” Rob replied. He turned to you, giving you a sly look, those blue eyes sparkling with anticipation.
“Rob, we can’t. This one is just… too advanced for us. We’ll never get away with it.”
“We’ve got to try.”
