but no one finds will until nico saves his ass
nico accidentally being hit by a bus or something and will already being at the scene and is like holy shit that’s the hot guy that saved me from a mugger or something

and then he juST HEALS HIM AND NICO’S LIKE WHAT THE FUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK
but nico doesnt tell will about the camp or whatever because he wants him to have a normal life

Walking into school, your eyes searched for someone in particular. You found him with his friends, leaning again his locker surrounded by his usual group of friends. He caught your eye, quickly looking away but a smile burst onto his face. You strode past him, moving to your own group of friends. You could feel a pair of eyes on you and you knew who they belonged to.
“Hey, Y/N’s here!” your best friend, Kat hollered.
Your other friends all turned and smiled at you. You returned it, but furrowed your eyebrows. They were acting odd.
“We have news” one of your other friends chorused.
“We think Jeff might be into you. You know the one on the baseball team? Hot Jeff?” another blurted.
You were stunned for a mere second before you regained your composure and laughed.
“Guys, there is no way Jeff Atkins is into me” you glanced at Kat, with a sly smile on your face.
Kat was the only one of your friends that knew about you and Jeff’s relationship. Kat tried to hide her smug smile,
“He’s been looking at for the past few weeks and you should’ve seen how he smiled when you walked in this morning”
You smacked her on the arm for feeding into this gossip and she put her hands up in surrender.
“Well, I guess I’ll have to do something about that then” you winked at them playfully, making all of your friends laugh, unaware of the truth.
“Oh, better act fast then because, Tracy’s on the same mission”
You turned around to see a girl leaning against his locker. They were laughing about something. She was pretty, prettier than you in your opinion. You trusted Jeff, you knew he wouldn’t do anything to hurt you but you couldn’t help the overwhelming feeling of envy as you watched him openly laugh with that girl. You two had agreed to keep your relationship a secret until he got his grades up since his parents thought a relationship would distract him. But seeing him talk to that girl so freely, laughing and joking, you realized that could’ve been you instead. But you were used to this feeling so you brushed it off.
“No but Tracy and Jeff would be kinda cute, I mean they’ve been working on a chemistry project together for the past weeks and they’re adorable in class” one of the girls in your circle, thought out loud.
“Have they now?” you muttered.
“Yeah and I reckon they would be a pretty good couple”
You glared in their direction,
“Hey Y/N, so I have this chem- ”
Jeff yelped as you
pulled him into your room by the front of his shirt, swiftly shutting the door
behind you with your foot. You pushed him into the wall next to the
door, pressing your body to his, trapping him between you and the wall. Jeff’s eyes widened at your position,
looking at you questioningly with big eyes.
“Y-Y/N what’s going on?”
You didn’t reply verbally, simply
pressing your lips to his instead. He instantly reacted to the kiss,
moving his hands to your waist, squeezing gently. You let your hand rest
on the back of his neck while another sat on his shoulder. He mumbled something incoherent and you ignored it. You shoved
your tongue into his mouth, but he pulled away as soon as you did.
“What’s up though?” he whispered, leaning his head back onto the wall.
You dodged the question, answering with another question.
“You’re okay with this aren’t you?” you responded.
“Well yeah of course…” Jeff stopped for a second, gathering his words but you had already taken that opportunity.
untangled yourself from him and lifted his shirt over his head, You smiled slyly at the sight of his bare body. You couldn’t help but smash your lips back onto his. He accepted you for a few heavenly
seconds before pulling away again.
“No seriously, what’s going on?” Jeff asked, worry in his eyes.
“Does it matter?” you panted, looking up into his eyes, getting restless.
“It does, I don’t want my girl- oh my god”
You had attacked his
neck with kisses, sucking a bit longer than necessary with each. You ran
your hand up the dips of his toned abs, getting a groan in return. You moved up to his jaw, pecking his lips before making a path down again. You hit just the right place, near the crook of his neck,
making Jeff moan in response.
You smirked at this,
trailing your hand down to his belt buckle. You pulled him closer to you
but before you could proceed to undoing it, Jeff pulled away for the
“I’m serious, what’s going on with you? You’re not like this normally…” he muttered, breathlessly.
took a deep breath, you didn’t want to tell him the real reason you
were all fired up. You hated being the typical jealous girlfriend. At
your silence, Jeff spoke again.
“Don’t get me wrong, it’s super hot but I just want to know if there’s anything wrong and I want to help if there is”
tucked a piece of hair behind your ear, looking at you with those
concerned eyes. Those adorable eyes that you fell in love with. Jeff was so different from the other jocks that he called his friends. A normal guy wouldn’t have questioned this but Jeff, being Jeff, was always thinking about your well being.
“I got jealous” you muttered.
You knew from the surprised look on his face that he heard you. You never really got jealous. Girls always flirted with him and you didn’t blame them.
“What was that?"he asked with a cheeky grin.
"I got freaking jealous okay?!”
And then he burst out laughing. The nerve of him. You looked away, anger bubbling in you.
“Of who?” he got out in between fits of laughter.
“That girl you’re doing the chemistry thing with”
You finally looked back into his amused eyes.
“Worried that we had chemistry?”
slapped his chest at the terrible pun. That’s when you finally noticed
the red and purple marks all over his neck and collarbone. It was your
turn to laugh now.
“Well I won’t have to worry anymore” you smirked.
eyed you suspiciously before following your gaze. You watched as his
eyes widened dramatically and he looked to you like a gaping fish.
how the hell am I meant to cover this up? Everyone will notice!”
“Jeff, man it’s like 500 degrees out, take that scarf off” Jess groaned.
“Uh, no I’m okay” Jeff replied awkwardly.
“Well, I’m getting sick of it” Marcus stated, ripping it off Jeff’s neck before he could protest’
The whole group silenced. Why did Jeff have to wear a v-neck today?
“Oh look who got some last night” Bryce cheered.
“Aww, look at our little Jeffrey growing up. I thought you didn’t do one time things” Justin teased.
Jeff had turned a bright shade of red.
“Damn dude, do we know the girl? Because she’s pretty hardcore” Monty chuckled, eyeing the marks that covered a large portion of his neck and shoulder.
Jeff took a deep breath, playfully glaring at you from across courtyard. You caught his gaze, laughing and winked at him.
I am also a sucker for your top 10 worldbuilding posts so here's another one: top 10 times the media got some TMI on Victor and Yuuri's relationship (and does it include Victor drunkenly revealing they switch to tabloids and Chris' speech at the wedding about where they've done the nasty?)
The wedding was strictly family and friends only so Chris’
speech never got made public (Yuuri would have died if it did!) but there have
been several incidents where the media learned a lot more about Viktor and
Yuuri than they ever expected.
Top 10 Times The Media Got Some TMI On Victor and Yuuri’s Relationship:
10) Once - when Yuuri was competing in the Four Continents
and Viktor was on the side-lines to cheer him on - during the warm up Yuuri was
practicing his quad flip over and over to make sure he got it right while
Viktor was doing an interview at the side of the rink and the reporter sort of
offhandedly mentioned ‘oh, Katsuki has been doing jumps for a while now and he
doesn’t even look tired, I guess it must be true that he has really good
stamina’ and Viktor just went really dreamy eyed and said ‘yes’ while
completely ignoring the interviewer and gazing at Yuuri. And the reporter and
the camera man just ended up looking at each other like ‘should we finish the
interview or just let him keep daydreaming about his sex life?’
9) During the season after the end of chapter 14 Viktor’s
exhibition skate was the Stay Close To Me duet and afterwards one of the
reporters asked Yuuri ‘were you ever concerned about doing the lifts during the routine?
Were you sure Nikiforov was going to be able to hold your weight or were you
worried he might drop you?’. And Yuuri was just like ‘No, I had faith in him
and we already knew he could lift me up pretty easily anyway’ which he probably
would have gotten away with if he hadn’t proceeded to go bright red afterwards
when he realised what he’d said and everyone who watched it was like ‘we kind
of really want to know but at the same time we probably really don’t.’
8) After Viktor finally retired he was doing a joint
interview with Yuuri and one of the reporters asked him if he was concerned
about maintaining his physical condition now that he wasn’t competing anymore because
lots of athletes have a hard time adjusting once they stop such vigorous
training regimes. And Viktor was just like, ‘I’m sure it won’t be a problem, I’ll
still be getting some pretty intense regular exercise even if I’m not training
anymore’ and winked at Yuuri and Yuuri started blushing really badly while all
the reporters went into minor meltdowns
7) Once they ended up being caught by reporters a few days
after Viktor’s birthday when they were out taking the dogs for a walk and it
was mostly fine but one of the reporters asked Yuuri what he had given Viktor
as a birthday present and they both went bright red and Yuuri sort of mumbled a
hurried and fake sounding answer that probably wasn’t even in English and
practically sprinted off. No-one ever found out exactly what Viktor’s ‘present’
was but there was a lot of speculation and the general consensus became that
Yuuri Katsuki was probably a lot kinkier than anyone ever expected and Viktor
Nikiforov was a very lucky guy.
6) This one came in a series of tweets from a fan who was in
an upmarket hotel bar which basically consisted of, ‘oh my god Viktor Nikiforov
is in the same bar as I am what should I do?’ ‘He’s sitting alone do you think
I should go and talk to him? Would it be weird to ask for his autograph?’ ‘I
wonder why Katsuki isn’t with him, it’s the off season I thought they’d be
together’ ‘Oh my god I just noticed he isn’t wearing his ring what does this
mean?’ ‘He just started to talk to a guy who sat down next to him and he’s
being really flirty oh my god.’ ‘Is Viktor Nikiforov having an affair????’ ‘Help,
red alert I’ve just seen Viktor Nikiforov in a bar chatting up some random guy
without his ring on what do I do?’ ‘Oh wait a minute the guy he was talking to
just turned around and it turns out it was actually Katsuki after all. Panic
over.’ ‘Wait a minute Katsuki isn’t wearing his ring either, they can’t have
both lost them at the same time can they?’ ‘They’re acting really weirdly
though and they’re dressed differently too I’m confused but I don’t want to interrupt’
*several minutes pause* ‘Well something I definitely didn’t expect to happen
tonight was finding out that Katsuki and Nikiforov are apparently into role
play but you learn something new every day.’
5) After being apart for a long time during the skating
season they finally reunited at an airport and it was all very dramatic and
Viktor ended up kissing Yuuri really passionately for a really long time. And
when they broke away Yuuri was like ‘that reminded me of our first kiss, after
the competition in Saitama.’ And Viktor was like ‘I did a lot more than just kiss
you then solnyshko’ being all sly and flirty and then they both sort of froze
as they realised that A) they were in a very public airport which is not a good
place to be heavily flirting even if you have been apart for several months and
B ) Several people were not so discreetly filming them. And that was how the
world learned exactly when and where Viktor and Yuuri got it on for the first
4) During the
four continents after they first got together Viktor ended up doing the thing
in he did in the anime where he tied Yuuri’s laces and kissed his skates while
being there to support him. And at that point their public relationship was
still only a few months old so while the reaction was mainly positive there
were still some assholes who were salty about the whole thing including one trashy
tabloid reporter who cornered Yuuri after his skate who was obviously a die-hard
Viktor fan and didn’t like him or their relationship at all. And while Yuuri is
usually quiet and shy and likes to keep as much about their relationship
private as he can because he doesn’t want the world butting in, he also is
absolutely savage when he wants to be and after going through so much to
finally get together with Viktor he is not willing to take any shit from
anyone. So the reporter was being really bitchy and asking questions like ‘don’t
you think it’s a bit degrading to make Viktor Nikiforov get down on his knees
for you?’ and Yuuri just really calmly said ‘not really, he likes it too much’,
smiled and walked away. The video clip of it happening has several million
3) At one point Viktor and Yuuri were on the beach at
Hasetsu and Viktor took a picture of Yuuri in his boxers (they had forgotten
their swimming stuff but got too hot and went to cool off in the sea) and
nothing else while laughing on the beach. And while 99.9% of the comments were
all along the lines of ‘goddamn’, ‘please step on me’ and ‘Yuuri Katsuki with his
shirt off is a gift to humanity’ there were a couple off assholes who were
commenting on the stretch marks on Yuuri’s thighs. Because he was a naturally
chubby kid with a lot of puppy fat and went from that to a lean athletic
teenager in a very short space of time so he has them although they’re not that
noticeable. And Viktor doesn’t usually care when people are rude to him online
because there are always a few shitty people out there but it really pisses him
off when someone insults Yuuri. So when someone tweeted him like ‘you’re really
hot, why do you bother with someone with ugly stretch marks like Katsuki?’ he responds
with ‘I love every part of my boyfriend including his marks. I especially like
to kiss them every night when his thighs are wrapped round my head.’ which
pretty much shut all the haters up there and then. Yuuri hit him with a pillow
for it afterwards but he was secretly kind of pleased.
2) The day after one of the major competitions Yuuri was
giving an interview and the interviewer asked ‘now that the competition is over
has the tiredness set in yet and are you ready to go home or are you still
riding high on the adrenaline from last night?’ and Chris, who happened to be
walking past at that moment, was just like ‘well he was certainly riding
something last night but it wasn’t the adrenaline.’ Yuuri’s expression after he
said it became a popular reaction picture for when someone looks like they
physically want to die of embarrassment.
1) The incident I mentioned in a previous ask where a tipsy
Viktor ends up getting interviewed by a tabloid reporter when his tongue is
looser than usual so when she asks ‘are you the top or the bottom in your
relationship’ aka the question everyone else wanted to ask but was way too
polite and respectful to, he just winked and said ‘why pick just one.’ And that
was how the world found out that Viktor and Yuuri switch.
Can you tell us about the Empires propaganda machine?
Later, after, in all the holonews segments and all the long ‘net articles furnishing further analysis, they—and here ‘they’ is vaguely defined, reporting is is too scattershot in a galaxy marked by lightyears and hyperlanes—will not be able to pinpoint the place where they went wrong. Where it was all tipped from earnest republican v. separatist reporting to laying the groundwork for imperial v. everyone else. When they stopped, or when their blades met with armor they couldn’t pierce, or—
But by then it’s too late. It’s too late, the Empire is already wound itself through every word spoken and every reference made; it’s in everything, a dark undercurrent of emotion and justification—don’t you love the Republic? don’t you care about other galactic citizens? don’t you want to follow the laws and reward those who have justified their existence as you have justified yours? you have worked so hard, the day is long and the rewards few, why would you give those to others? why would you share?
(’Sharing’ is a dirty word, under the Empire. To each according to his strength, that is the Imperial motto. But ‘strength’ is a narrow gate, and it cuts many off at the knees, the ankles, those unguarded places—)
There is no question that human beings are afraid of difference they have been afraid of that since whatever primordial swamp they crawled out of but—they have always put it aside, they have always at least pretended to the idea of recognizing other species, the claim of xenos to homeworlds. the equal right of existence. Et cetera. Never mistake how hard human beings will try, when confronted with tentacles, if there is profit or benefit in ignoring any difference.
But humans also reproduce like orburs in spring, and they colonize, multiply out into the galaxy like a plague. Like a—spore. Like something biological and not, because nothing in nature moves without regard to the animus they generate. And they are a tetchy species, measuring everything in relative value. It doesn’t matter if—
Luke does not stop to question the holoradio adverts he hears, the faded propos papering the Toshe public hall, saying ‘JOIN THE EMPIRE TODAY! FLY FOR THE EMPIRE! BE BRAVE BE TRUE BE STALWART!’ Anywhere is better than here, right? Get closer to that bright center and anything is better—
(It is still hard to find that bright line between the Republic under the tyranny of the Clone Wars and the perpetual state the Empire embodies. That is just how these things go.)
Leia is on the first line of defense for the Rebellion, she watches propos and listens to senators argue, quoting lines from holodramas—ironically, but also as illustrations. (She learns very young that a well-told story, even fictional, has quicker legs than one badly told and true. She disapproves, but that is the way of things.) It is amazing how many late Republicans would have supported he Empire despite explicitly stating they did not support the Empire, its agents, or any move toward a less democratic structure of government. It is amazing how weak it makes them seem, given what she knows about the inner workings of the capitol. It is—
Han is good at finding cantinas where, if the Imperial propos cut into he grav-ball match, everyone groans aloud. He smiles a little against the curve of the mug as everyone curses out the poor bastard who has to—
(Han always feels a little bad for him. Her. Whoever—he knows what it’s like to have your neck under someone’s boot, to know you don’t really have choice in this. At least he’s busy smuggling, can’t be much a spokesperson that way.)
The Resistance does not have the access the Empire does, but the Rebellion has feed hackers, holonet ‘ware corrupters. The Alliance blasts every inbox with public reveals of complaints, salaries, donations. Saw Guerra’s people de-encrypt transmissions, and release them to the ‘net in vicious anarchic fashion. (Make of it what you will, that Tarkin sent a transmission to Krennic saying ‘stop being so gentle on your workforce,’ after Krennic’s 12-hour days resulted in its first overworked, dehydrated, malnourished death.)
Regional reporters dump their findings onto the holonet, saying, look at what the governor is doing, we buried the jedi but we found, we—
look, they say in unison. look at this. you are not alone. you are not crazy. something has shifted, something significant has changed and you are not alone in thinking this. We are here, together, and this is dangerous, this is—
you are not alone. you are right, your perception of the world is—there is an objective reality, and they depart from it. you are right. you are sane. it is the galaxy that has gone insane in the interim.
“Senator?” the holonet reporter asks, when Mon Mothma falls silent, and she is smiling down at the podium. “Senator, if you could—”
“According to the study conducted by the Galactic Agency for—” she begins, and the briefing room falls so quiet she is afraid she has lost them. But there is a holonet reporter in the first row who has pressed her hand to her mouth, even as her eyes are wide, fixed on Mon’s face; and out of the corner of her eye, Mon can see Leia Organa (so much Bail and Breha’s daughter, even now) pressing her lips together, her eyes shut. And this is good. They are good, they are better. Here is the study. Here is the definition. Here is the closest she knows how to get to objective reality.
She justifies. From the root word, meaning justice. Meaning to make right. Meaning, more than what is what is available on the surface, more than what is unquestioned. More.
