aries// it’s probably fairly easy to spot that aries. they’re the one that screams aggressively when their pottery project crumbles in their hands. the one that always wants to try ziplining or bungee jumping or skydiving.
in private - aries in private are one of those signs that are very similar to the way they are in general or in public. they don’t feel the need to have to cover up their emotions or their thoughts. if you’re with an aries in private, you will probably notice that they’re more chill than you thought they were, though. and not as angry as they seem.
flirting - the ones that subtly flirt but still seem to get their message across. flirts a lot too, though. anytime they can get close to their crush, they’re flirting.
features - they probably have like one really striking feature. like the most beautiful hair you’ve ever seen or really great natural eyebrows.

in private - taurus in private are probably sweeter than they are in public, especially if you’re close to them. many of them may also be a little more emotional than you’d think. sometimes they’ll talk for hours, sometimes they’ll barely say a single word.
flirting - you probably won’t even notice a taurus flirting. they’re quite subtle about it, because it makes them feel awkward. this doesn’t mean they’re bad at flirting though, usually they’re able to become good friends with their crush, and things may go from there.
features - soft features that all fit together really nicely. soft, rounded nose. cute eyes. not too strongly defined eyebrows.
gemini // ah, the gemini. it’s probably one of the popular girls in your class, or the guy who’s the class clown. they’re fun, energetic, and definitely quite talkative. they have a lot of nice things to say about people.
in private - at first, gemini seems just like they are in public. talkative, got a lot of stories up their sleeve, smiles a bunch. but pay attention to their words. they’re different. in private, they’re more comfortable with sharing a lot of gossip. they’re probably also a lot smarter than you thought they were. may react differently to the same thing than if they were in public.
flirting - a gemini is a pretty solid flirter. they’re good at never making their crush bored. they rarely tell the same story twice, even if in reality it’s the same story with a few tweaks here and there.
features - a gemini is just cute, man. beautiful smile. bright and alert eyes.
cancer // a cancer may be a little bit hard to spot. they’re either super shy and reserved, or pretty talkative and outgoing, but not much of an in-between. probably the ones that get a little offended by a joke, and can take criticism pretty personally and to the heart.
in private - a cancer is one of those people you want to know privately. like someone you want to spend one-on-one time with. they’re cuddly, cute, sweet, ad comforting. if you’re close, you’ll probably be able to notice the transition from being awkward in public to smooth af in private.
flirting - a cancer may not be the best flirter of all time. but, they may get their way. they probably clam up and sweat when being close to their crush. but hey, they’re cute and lovable so maybe it won’t be hard for their crush to notice them.
features - a cancer has soft features. they look really kind. the type of person that if you’re in a crowd and you have to ask someone for the time, you’d ask them because they seem like they won’t be too bothered by you and will be nice about it.
leo // not hard to spot a leo. usually loud and confident, but not usually in the cocky way. they’re always with a group of people, and probably the one that’s talking. super fun and adventurous. the kind of person to bring ten bags of marshmallows to the campfire.
in private - a leo in private may surprise you from the way they seem in public. probably one of the most different from in private to in public compared to all the other signs. they have insecurities hidden. they’re not always super happy. may get stressed out a lot. needs to know you’ll always be there for them.
flirting - leo is one of the best flirters hands down. their crush probably is already attracted to them anyways. good storytellers, pretty hilarious. can make their crush feel like them flirting is almost addictive. they’re also obvious with their flirting.
features - a leo is beautiful. could rock the catwalk or the red carpet. they may enjoy wearing a lot of makeup (not necessarily to ‘cover up’ but more so bc they just like to) but are just as glamorous without.
virgo // a virgo looks at the small details rather than the big picture. probably the perfectionist in the class, who has perfect handwriting and good grades. the one that makes good, smart decisions. knows what’s going on in the world.
in private - a virgo is more willing to try new things and will say things that surprise you when you first have one-on-one time with a virgo. even though they’re fairly entertainig themselves, they’ll always beg you to entertain them or tell them some good jokes.
flirting - a virgo is also a pretty subtle flirter, and seems like just a friend, which is okay because they may say some creepy things that would be super embarrassing if their crush knew they were flirting with them. you know like or “i love the neighborhood you live in”. don’t like leading people on.
features - a virgo likes to focus on their appearance. good fashion sense, perfect makeup, astounding hair.
libra // a libra is probably the one you automatically feel like is kind of “fake” as a first impression. they’re probably not “fake”, they just try too hard to cover up their real emotions and show different ones instead so they don’t seem detached. pretty intelligent and a good talker.
in private - a libra is another sign you want to know personally. you just always want to know what they have to say and their opinion on things. they can be either mature or childish depending on their mood. very peaceful. doesn’t like fighting with the ones they love.
flirting - a libra is pretty good at flirting. they can be the touchy type, so they’re probably not as subtle. they have such a natural charm to them and are so intriguing. easy to get along with.
features - a libra probably has gorgeous eyes. you can tell they’re thinking about something important all the time. probably very light (not in color, in terms of feeling ig).
scorpio // a scorpio is intense. they’re highly opinionated and good at arguing, and have clear emotions. they can be either loud or quiet. everyone is probably either aesthetically attracted to a scorpio, or attracted to their personality. they’re just cool.

flirting - a scorpio is definitely a touchy flirty, but they’re so good at flirting they can control whether their touching seems more friendly or more physical. it’s their presence that intrigues their crush more than their words. like a scorpio doesn’t have to say anything and their crush probably won’t even be bored.
features - a scorpio is sexy, fierce, and mysteriously beautiful. they’ve got that perfect smirk, pout, smile, etc. down.
sagittarius // a sagittarius could be a little hard to spot. they can be fairly stubborn, though many other signs can be too. they also usually feel like they’re right, and pretend to listen to your side. pretty outgoing, a little weird but in a way that makes you crave it.
in private - when it comes to humor- sags are underrated. they’re pretty damn funny. they’re also very opinionated. if you mean something to them though, they’ll protect you well and put your before themselves.
flirting - a sag is neither good nor bad at flirting. sometimes they try, sometimes they don’t. they believe that if it’s meant to happen, it’ll happen. with this in mind, they probably don’t flirt too much with strangers.
features - bold features all around. irresistible smile and eyes. strong nose.
capricorn // a capricorn always gets their work done- even if some of them procrastinate until the last minute. they’re only talkative around the people they’re comfortable with. is into more old-fashioned things. very nice, but stubborn and opinionated.

flirting - they don’t even flirt. they probably flirt with their eyes and admire from afar. depending on their crush (the kind of person they are) the aura they have may be really intriguing and attractive, or they may not even be noticed.
features - gorgeous hair. they’re so pretty but so underrated.
aquarius // idealistic. talks about the future and ignores the past. probably one of the smartest people you’ll talk to- not just academically but socially as well. may be a little weird but people love it. people just know them, they’re well known. they also know that they’re funny, but they don’t like taking the role of class clown. know that when receiving a compliment from them, it’s genuine and will make your day.
in private - an aquarius in private is someone you almost feel like you need to know personally. if they let you in, consider yourself lucky- but don’t think you’ve broken down their walls. they’ve got secrets. they’re so interesting that you never get bored, even if you’re talking about yourself, the way they look at you is heart-warming. can be both dreamy and realistic.
flirting - an aquarius may or may not be a good flirter. they tend to get better with practice. however, other people may not notice them flirting. they treat their crush like a friend and signals may be a bit messed up.
features - aquarians may have wonderful features that you miss if you don’t pay attention close enough. sweet smile and knowing eyes.
pisces // a pisces is that daydreamer. the one who speaks with “if” instead of “when”. very calm and sweet. a good person to befriend if you want someone loyal and adorable.
in private - a pisces in private is pretty much the same as when they’re in public. they love to listen to you and offer emotional support rather than giving advice. they tend to be pretty gullible. very loving and easy to love back.
flirting - a pisces is a touchy flirter, but an awkward touchy flirter. they’ll go to touch your shoulder but quickly retract as soon as their fingertips brush. it may be obvious when they’re flirting. they tend to ramble and maybe even stutter.
features - a pisces is just a big ol’ ball of cuteness. no specifics. just awesome.
Painful, yes (well, to Starco shippers, at least), but also important. While the parallelism robs the development of their relationship of some subtleness, it’s also going to allow us to see how different people who wanted the same thing (even if at different times, and I can just pray Star deep down still would like it) are going to react and behave.
Star was (is?) super good at running away from things, so she could just close her eyes and pretend things were not there for a while.
But Marco? His “blindness” mostly came from his tendency to focus too much on one thing at a time: first his crush on Jackie, then the sadness he attributed to his recent breakup. But now that he’s painfully aware about what’s truly eating at him (and possibly, retroactively, at what he felt in other occasions as well, from Scent Of A Hoodie, to possibly, Blood Moon Ball).
So… what is he going to do? Last time he was faced with a life changing realization, in Sophomore Slump, he was quick to turn his life around and go to Mewni, because the dork has a hell of a hard time with change, but once it happens he’s not one to wait around, and usually determined to give his best (from getting his red belt to being a good squire to Star). So what is he going to do now that he realized that he likes Star, and that staying around her might just end up hurting him? I don’t think he’s going to be able to pretend everything is okay until something big happens.
This also gave him, and possibly us viewers, a new perspective on Star’s actions in Lint Catcher (I don’t think it’s going to be addressed, though, since it doesn’t really need to be spelt out): she didn’t want him back at first not because she doesn’t enjoy his presence, and probably not even because she doesn’t like him anymore, but because she was scared about his return in her life undoing all the efforts she put in getting her life back on tracks, there on Mewni, after all the pain she had to suffer ever since she became aware of her impossible crush.
getting out of bed as soon as you wake up - no more chilling on your phone for an hour while you should have been doing your homework (me rn)
did a mistake? did something you shouldnt have done ? accept you did this mistake but try and stop blaming yourself and critisizing so much: accept that its okay to do mistakes and it happens, by changing into a pozitive attitude there are much more chances to not do that again
have a few days/ weeks for a project? work !! on !! it !! seriously dont let it all in the last day the stress is much higher and it probably wont turn out that good because you’re hurrying up
eat breakfast !! seriously ok
pick an outfit the night before: so much time saved up
reading a book? get a highlighter and highlight unknown words ( especially if you’re not reading in your native language ) . at the end of the chapter/ your reading time search them all or maybe even write them down ? ( i struggle with this so much tbh but i believe it pays back knowing much more than before )
do a little bit at least of something you enjoy daily: even if you’re busy af find just half an hour in which you draw, read, play with your cat etc etc
achieve a morning and night routine: honestly it can be the most simple things but if you do them like straight as soon as you wake up then you’re more likely to be productive while if you just stay on your phone for half an hour then brush your teeth, you’re basically wasting time.
talk to people ! ok listen up i know its scary to just go and talk to people but if you know for example you have a common interest its very likely they will be excited about it and you might even become friends !
you’re afraid of doing something? lets say public speaking. i am completely terrified of it . this is exactly why i signed up for debate, to get over this fear. the only way you can solve your problem with a fear for something like this is to face it straight on . yes it will give you anxiety probably it might stress you but you’re being so brave and slowly you’ll most likely overcome it
have a crush? you know they’re single and a very chill person ? talk to them. like seriously the best thing to do when you have a crush is chill down for a bit and realize its not the end of the world if they dont like you back and the only way even to make that happen is to talk to them ! like become their friend and maybe hint at them that you like them and you never know??¿
okay listen here i know you’re probably thinking im the most peaceful perfect person ever because i do all these things but the thing is : i dont , i barely do any of them . however , i would really like to change that and i really believe these little habits will help me ( and you ! ) in life in general.
I still can’t believe I was Straight™ for like fourteen years, I look back on it and just ??? How??? Child, did you never see a girl? And nonbinary folks are like legit ethereal deities, how did you survive not knowing you were pansexual how
imagine abusers going thru what you’ve gone thru, i bet they would be completely pathetic and react so much worse than you did and then they’d prolly do it to someone else too just to feel like it’s all justified, god, abusers suck
If you’ve offered any tarot readings to the general public in your life, you know this question well. “What does “X” think of me?“ "How does "Y” feel about me?“ "How does "Z” see me?“
It’s become a pretty polarized topic recently, with a lot of pushback from readers who don’t want to pry or don’t think it’s a productive question. For me - well, humans are weird and complicated. There’s all sorts of rules about what things mean (She touched her hair a lot, she’s totally into you…) and sometimes open communication is just weird and unproductive ("Hey bud, if you’re getting a crush on me, can you just … not?” “Um vain much I don’t even like you!”)… Point being, sometimes a bit of extra knowledge is appreciated before things get wierd, and I for one am totally ok with seeing if that extra knowledge is available!
The “prying into someone’s thoughts when they aren’t here” concern is definitely valid, but for me? I’m an empath. Thing get dumped on me all the time. I’ve gotten to a point where I can filter people’s public info from their private info when they are near me, to try to minimize that prying. The technique I’m going to share here is an extension of that - the cards themselves will filter public from private feelings of the party who isn’t present. If the third party is closed off in any way, all this reading will show is the energy of the relationship between them and the querent. If there is anything publicly accessible in their energy, this reading will pick up on that and allow it to be shared. I’ve described this before like facebook stalking a stranger - they have private posts, friends-only posts and public posts. This technique only picks up on the public posts. It fits within my moral code, but if it doesn’t yours, that’s cool. If it does, feel free to adopt it within your own practice!
With all that preamble done, lets get to business. The technique is basically a three card spread, with Court Cards and other chosen signifiers making the magic happen.
So, to start off, you’re going to pick yourself a couple of signifiers - a card to represent you, and a card to represent the other person. In my case, I’ve chosen The High Priestess & the King of Swords. This is actually just a mental choice though - leave the cards in the deck for now. These signifiers will basically be used as reference points and to add in a bit of depth later on.
Shuffle and lay out 3 cards.
The general gist of the technique is the first card represents you & your energy, the 2nd and 3rd potentially are the other party - but ONLY if a Court Card or personally chosen signifier for them shows up there. If no Courts/Signifiers show up in the 2nd or 3rd spots, you’re being told that you’re sticking your nose where it’s not wanted. Read the cards only as a “general energy of the relationship” spread and let it be. You can throw your chosen signifiers down on either side of the spread at this point if that helps you understand the interplay of the cards - just remember that even if you do, the thoughts and feelings of the other person STILL aren’t being shown directly. It’ll always be a “general energy of the relationship” reading when there are no courts in spot 2 or 3.
In my example here though, I got a Court!
In this case, the first card is showing you - if it’s a Court/Signifier, it’s how they see you (here’s where you can use the signifiers you chose - place the signifier for yourself behind the one that showed up. How does how you see yourself compare with how they see you?). If it’s not a Court/Signifier, it’s what they see you bringing to the table. In this example, the Court representing them is in the third spot. This shows how they see themselves in regards to the relationship (and again, you could dig out the signifier you chose for them to see how you see them compares to how they see themselves!) The middle card is their thoughts & feelings on what’s going on between the two of you.
The next thing that could happen is you get a Court or Signifier card in the 2nd slot, like above (I also threw in the original chosen signifiers to show how they intermingle). I find this layout ONLY shows up when there are hidden feelings that are very important for the querent to know about. The third card will show weight being carried by the third party, or where their energy is focussed if not in the relationship itself, or feelings about the relationship that they are having trouble expressing. IF another Court Card shows up here, there is someone else in the picture - it could be something like heavy parental expectations about their love life, it’s also shown up for other people the person could be interested in. I’ve even seen it representing their boss if they are super-invested in work and trying to impress someone for a raise. Keep those situations in mind - it isn’t always cheating! Oh and if it’s a minor, not a Court/Signifier in the first position, then just read it as their thoughts/feelings about the relationship, and not direct thoughts about the querent, basically…
And that really covers it - that’s a brief run down of my convoluted method of reading for third parties, while leaving room for my deck spirits to slam the door in my face if I’m not meant to pry! I’m hoping it’s clear enough, but feel free to ask if anything didn’t make sense! I was trying to not tl;dr while still being clear soooo yeah lol. If ya like the method, feel free to adopt it, if it’s still pushing boundaries for ya, that’s cool! Feel free to chat me up about your thoughts and experiences if you try this out!
I… have absolutely no idea why I wrote this but uhhh did anyone order some Hux giving extremely unsettling dirty talk?
(Warnings for mentions of genital harm but nothing actually happens. At worst, there’s some very mild CBT)
Kylo trembled under Hux’s skilled hand, those slim fingers curled into a fist and working his cock steadily and intently. There was a glint in Hux’s eyes, locked on his own, that probably should have been unnerving but Kylo just found it arousing. It looked like Hux was going to eat him.
“You know,” Hux said conversationally, his hand slowing to more of a tease, “you’re rather vulnerable right now.”
Kylo resisted the urge to snort. He was, he supposed, though it wasn’t as if he didn’t still have the Force on his side. He wasn’t tied down either; his hands remained by his head bound only by Hux’s command. Still, even if he had been chained to the bed, as much as he enjoyed the illusion of helplessness, he could leave anytime he chose. He didn’t want to, but it was the principle of the thing.
“An interesting fact for you,” Hux continued, looking just a touch feral as his hand moved down to toy with Kylo’s balls. “It only takes a few kilograms of pressure to internally castrate someone.”
Hux’s grip suddenly tightened, pulling on him. It wasn’t too much, but just on the edge of it, a hint of pain to keep him in the moment. Kylo let out a choked noise.
“And yet here you are, giving all of your most sensitive areas to me to do with what I wish.” Hux paused to lick a stripe up the underside of Kylo’s cock, still gently tugging on his balls.
Kylo couldn’t help a whimper, both from the stimulation and then the lack of it as well as Hux’s words. It shouldn’t have turned him on and yet his cock was already throbbing. Still, though, his hands remained where they were, no matter how much the twin urges to push Hux down and push him away screamed at him to move them.
“And all that isn’t even mentioning what I could to with my teeth.” Hux gave him a sharp, unhinged grin before swallowing him whole as if he didn’t have a gag reflex.
Kylo moaned loudly, his hips moving of their own accord as Hux gave a few bobs of his head, but the hand that was clamped around his balls tightened in warning, forcing him to still. Hux pulled off with hollowed cheeks, leaving Kylo panting as the pressure moved over the head of his cock and then off of him entirely. He whined, no longer caring about pride. Hux brought his free hand back up and started stroking again.
“One sharp bite,” Hux snapped his teeth together with an audible clack that made Kylo shiver, “and you’d be dismembered.“
As Hux’s hand sped up, the slick sound of his fist echoing in the room, Kylo tried to formulate some response to the comment (and the admittedly unsettling pun), but all that came out was another loud cry. Hux rolled his testicles with the hand not occupied with stripping his cock and Kylo could feel his orgasm approaching already, his body reacting to both the stimulus and Hux’s words. The Force was there, coiling on the periphery of his senses, reaching out for it an automatic response, but he pushed it away.
“You could pull me off, of course. Shove me away with the Force. Even kill me with it,” Hux said, starting to sound just a touch breathless himself. “But you know you’d never be able to stop me in time. By the time you realized what I was doing, it’d be too late.”
Before Kylo could react, Hux held his cock at the base between a finger and a thumb and moved his own head down to sheath Kylo in his throat again. Hux swallowed around him and Kylo moaned, and then he felt just the hint of teeth right at the bottom of his shaft, just the slightest clenching of Hux’s jaw. Kylo was suddenly coming with a shout, his hips thrusting up without any control and Hux didn’t stop him this time, just worked him through with firm sweeps of his tongue and hard sucks until Kylo was oversensitive and twitching. Kylo stared at the ceiling, overwhelmed and trying to process that such a threat was what had brought him over the edge.
Hux was already moving, though, pulling off and grabbing the lube from the bedside table. Kylo shuddered at the thought of any more stimulation, but he also knew he loved it when Hux fucked him like this. If he was lucky, he’d even come again.
“Good boy. Now roll over,” he said, eyes glittering dangerously as he grabbed Kylo by the hips and pulled to encourage him to do so, “and I’ll tell you about all the things I could do to that lovely little hole of yours.”
What I have learned is that one day, if someone loves me as much as I love you, I will hold on and never let them go. If one day someone stays by my side through every bump in the road the way I did for you, I will appreciate them and thank them and love them. If one day someone gives their all to me, the way I gave everything to you, I will give them everything in return. If one day someone looks at me like I am the only thing on this earth, I won’t look past them like you did to me. If one day someone loves me the way I love you, oh boy, I will finally understand why fate didn’t choose us. Because maybe, even if i would’ve settled for you, I will realize I deserved so much more.
Being a gay lil’ hufflepuff still in the closet and calling all the other puff girls “lovely” as a pet name or other cute things like “love” or “peaches” in the hopes that they will respond with the same cutesy nicknames and therefore you could start a relationship with them (or at the very least be good friends).
Baking things and giving them some every time you see your crush even if it means staying up all night to bake something just for them. Having no clue how to know if another girl is into girls so you just do cutesy things and be extra nice to the girls you have a crush on (probably many crushes at the same time) in the hopes they will do the same back or sense your gay ness so you can have a happily ever after. Daydreaming about that beautiful girl in herbology with the grey hair but the next class she has blue hair and it’s always in some elaborate style but you like it best when she has it down and it’s always beautiful but you never have the courage to tell her…aside from today you promised yourself you would give a stranger a compliment (even if she isn’t a stranger because she always says hi and is nice to you…it still counts!) but you chicken out and just daydream about how the conversation would have gone and of course it ended in hugs and a date.
Okay but I just… really love the idea of Pidge having a dumb
baby crush on Lance.
She’s so embarrassed by this.
“Why HIM?” She whines,
burying her face into Hunk’s shoulder. “Oh my god, he walked into a glass
door yesterday. He put his elbow in the fondue fountain talking to a cute girl.
He squeed over new moisturizer. He is the source of half the secondhand
embarrassment I feel.” "Is the other half Coran?” “Mostly.” “That’s fair.”
“MATT, I HAVE FEELINGS, AND
BUTTERFLIES, WHAT DO I DO?” “C O N S U M E T H E M.” “What
the fuck.” "No, seriously, who do you have feelings for?” “What the fuck Matt what was that.”
See, and she also starts to get
really self conscious about all the jokes and jabs she makes at him for his
goof behavior. “Is the reason I joke about his terrible pick up lines that
they’re terrible, or is it that I’m jealous?” (It’s not jealousy, he’s a cheesy
shit she just thinks that’s cute) but she gets super self conscious about
criticizing him because she doesn’t want to be an ass
Lance picks up on the fact that
she’s being nicer and just
“Hunk, Hunk, what did she
do?” “What?” "Did she accidentally delete all my music or trap
my room or plan a mean prank or–” “WHAT?” “PIDGE IS BEING
NICE AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT MEANS.”
Someone save these two.
Pidge is awkward, Lance is
oblivious, everyone is watching them spiral.
“What do I do does she hate
me now” “Why would her not calling you a dipshit mean she hates
you" “That’s our THING we have a THING I act like an idiot and she
calls me on it it’s our THING!”
Lance actually finds there
dynamic to be incredibly special? He cares about Pidge a lot (Even if it’s not
a Red kind of emotion yet) and doesn’t know what he did to mess this up?
One day, during lunch. Pidge:
Ugh, Lance, why. Why are you like this? Lance: Love you too, gremlin! Pidge: I
hate you. Allura: Wait, was Hunk lying about what a crush is, then? Pidge:
*slowly turns to look at Allura with a dead stare*
He does, especially for all the
Shit Pidge gave him when he had crushes on people
Anyway, long story short, Pidge crushing on Lance is adorable whether he returns her feelings or not. It’s cute. Let her be cute. Let her have silly puppy love crushes on her friends and try to figure out how feelings work. Let Pidge be a normal teenager trying to hide a blush when the guy she likes says something funny. Let her have her normal teen girl moments in between all the war.
Oh! And let her crush on one of the guys she knows won’t give her shit for being trans.

Taking a deep breath, Katalina walked into the chemistry lab and already sat in her assigned seat. She didn’t even bother to greet anyone, too embarrassed on how much she spent the night thinking about and missing Stiles. It made her annoyed and so confused, she just couldn’t take it anymore. And, so, with everything she had in her, Katalina tried to push it all down.
“Hey, partner.” A smiling Scott McCall greeted her when she sat next to him at their lab table.
“Hi.” Katalina cleared her throat, her voice a little rough from not using it until now. “Good morning, partner.”
“Good morning.” Scott chuckled, opening his chemistry notebook to get ready for class. “Did you sleep well?”
Katalina sighed at the question, the memories of her constant thinking and nostalgia over her ex had her up the entire night, tossing and turning in her bed. She tried everything she could to sleep. She listened to classical music, she tried reading to tire her eyes out and she even counted sheep, but none of them actually worked. Thank God for Lydia Martin, however, and all of the makeup classes she has ruthlessly given her. Because of her red headed best friend, Katalina was able to cover all of her dark circles with just the right amount of concealer.
“Yeah.” Katalina forced a smile and before she can ask him the same question, the chemistry teacher began teaching his class.
Katalina could feel his gaze on her and it made her skin tingle. He didn’t even try to hide the fact that he was staring at her, Stiles Stilinski has no boundaries and he certainly isn’t ashamed of that. Theo, on the other hand, was also watching her like a hawk. Well, her and Stiles that is. Katalina wasn’t a werewolf or anything supernatural, and yet, she could still sense the jealousy coming off of her boyfriend.
After giving a boring explanation, the teacher handed out an assignment to do and she and Scott immediately got to work. It had something to do with mixing chemicals and Katalina was very thankful that Scott had actually been paying attention, the girl too focused on the stares she was getting from two different people at the same time.
“So, why’d you leave the party so early last night?” Scott asked nonchalantly as he poured a green liquid into another empty test tube.
“Oh, uh, I just felt like going home.” Katalina answered and the werewolf scoffed at her answer.
“Even if I wasn’t a werewolf and could hear your heartbeat increase, I would still know that that lame excuse is clearly a lie.”
“Okay, you know I really hate that you’re always one step ahead of the rest of us, right?” She chuckled, accepting the fact that she just got caught like a deer in headlights.
“I do.” Scott laughed and she laughed along with him before a comfortable silence took over.
The Alpha werewolf cleared his throat and turned to look her straight in the eye with a look of protectiveness and care. Two characteristics Scott always has on and she admired him for that.
“Was it because of Stiles?” He asked, his voice soft and careful not to possibly hurt her.
Katalina just nodded, not really trusting her voice to verbally respond. Scott knows about everything that happened better than anyone else. He knows just how much Stiles truly hurt her and he was the greatest friend Katalina could have at that moment. Scott listened to every word her wounded heart had to say and gave her some of the best advice she had ever heard in her life.
“Did you know that he asks me about you everyday?”
“He does?” Katalina asked, her voice more perky than she expected.
“Yeah, he does.” Scott nodded, giving her a weak smile. “Stiles cares so much about you.”
Katalina’s eyes fell to the floor with that small and, yet, painful statement.
“Yeah, well, someone who cares about you doesn’t use you for their own personal interests.” Katalina scoffed, focusing on her terrible handwriting in their notebook.
“He made a mistake-”
“Scott, we’ve been over this way too many times.” She stated with an exhausted voice, looking back up at him. “How about we just drop it?”
“Okay.” The werewolf swallowed, agreeing with her terms. He didn’t want to push her and make her feel worse than she already did.
Class ended soon after Scott finally finished the experiment perfectly. Katalina helped with what she could, but he did most of it. Scott was focusing on his grades more lately, finally knowing how to balance the supernatural with school. It made Katalina proud and happy to see him so invested in his future and not just on the threats that surrounded them all the time.
Once the bell rang, indicating that the students were finally dismissed, Theo immediately made his way towards his girlfriend. He didn’t want Stiles anywhere near her and would do everything in his power to prevent it. The anger on Stiles’ face was so obvious that it wasn’t even necessary to glance at him to know just how furious he was. Theo could smell the chemo signals coming off of the human and he smiled, pleased with himself for causing that.
Stiles grabbed his things and left without even bothering to say a word, his patience too thin to spend any second longer in the same room as Theo Raeken. Katalina watched as he angrily trudged out of the classroom and felt slightly hurt. She just wished things could be like how they used to. She wants to be his friend again and to have him in her life, but everytime she tries to fix things between them, Katalina remembers how he just used her to get to the real girl he had a crush on and it pains her everytime.
“Ready for lunch?” Theo asked his girlfriend, glad Stiles was finally out of the picture.
“Yeah.” She sighed, looking back at him and getting her backpack. “Let’s go.”
The cafeteria was already full of students getting their meals when she and Theo had arrived. They would’ve gotten there earlier, but Theo wanted some alone time with her. Katalina’s pink lipstick smudged on his lips as evidence on just what they were doing before getting there.
Once they got their lunches and sat down at a cafeteria table with their friends, Theo immediately settled his hand on her thigh. She turned to look at him with a confused expression when he rubbed small circles on her bare skin.
Katalina gazed at him with a confused expression, but Theo was too busy looking elsewhere. She didn’t understand why he was being so straight forward, sure they’re very passionate with one another, but they never really show any public displays of affection. It made Katalina nervous and Theo didn’t like to make her uncomfortable in any way.
Her breath hitched in her throat when he slid his hand higher and under the fabric of her skirt. Anxiety rushed through the blood in her veins and she didn’t know whether or not she wanted him to stop. However, the second Theo’s finger lightly touched her over her panties, she knew she wanted him to keep going.
That’s when she noticed just where he was staring at and everything, finally, made sense. Theo was cockily smirking at her ex-boyfriend as Stiles angrily glared back. Everyone sitting at the table didn’t even seem to notice what was going on since they were too focused in their own conversations, but the moment Katalina realized just what Theo was doing, her entire body boiled with rage. It made her so upset that Theo would do such a childish thing just to spark some anger from Stiles.
The tension between the three of them was strong and once Scott, finally, noticed what was going on, Katalina had enough. She roughly grabbed his hand and urgently ripped it away from her body, Theo’s head immediately snapping towards her. Katalina didn’t say anything, she just watched as Stiles smirked to himself and focused on the meal before him.
“Are you okay?” Her boyfriend whispered in a hushed tone into her ear, his breath sending shivers down her body and she cleared her throat before answering.
“Just stop, Theo.”
Katalina groaned at his attempts of being innocent and it made her angry just how hard Theo always tries to be the victim and never the one doing the wrong thing.
“Stop trying to make Stiles jealous!” Katalina shouted a little too loudly and everyone snapped their attentions towards the couple. Her cheeks flushed in embarrassment as they watched in awe.
“I’m not trying to make Stiles jealous.” Theo lied right through his teeth and her ex-boyfriend scoffed from across the table. “Well, it was working until you took my hand off your thigh!”
“You’re such a child, Theo.” Katalina shook her head, annoyed at her unbelievable boyfriend.
“And it definitely wasn’t working.” Stiles stated, pushing a spoonful of food into his mouth.
“Please, Stiles.” Theo chuckled, the sound making Katalina cringe. “I can smell your jealousy from over here.”
“Yeah, for me to be jealous would require me actually liking Katalina.” Stiles answered with his mouth full.
The response was something she already knew, but still stung a small pang of hurt in her heart. It’s not like she has any feelings for him either, but ever since last night all she can feel is nostalgia clouding her mind. And it was stupid of her to think that things could ever go back to the way they used to be, yet she couldn’t help but feel the smallest bit hopeful. It was reckless and she knew that. Katalina can’t take back what he did and their relationship can never return to the peaceful state it used to be.
Enzo Amore/OC (smut): Despite his constant playful flirtations, you and Enzo have never been anything more than friends. After a drunken night at the club, and a questionable morning after, you learn how he really feels about you.
(This is my first fic on here, I’m so nervous but I hope you all really enjoy it! It ended up waaaay longer than I anticipated.)
It all started last year in grade nine. You had your schedule mailed to you a month before, you had purchased your uniform in advance, and you even knew a few friends from your elementary school attending your high school as well. Your locker was on the first floor in the science wing, your teachers were all impeccably nice, and you were on your best behaviour. You made two friends, and went home smiling, and said for the first time ever that you loved school. Everything went surprisingly smooth, except for one fine detail.
