oh how i wanted a fairy godmother when i was little

Stiles listens to his dad ask him the same question that comes up way too often, and gets lost counting the dark flecks that scatter across the white expanse of the all-too-familiar hospital ceiling. Here again, and ‘He’ll be fine,’ the doctor says.

His dad wants to hear it from Stiles’ lips, though. Is he okay?

Is he really okay?

His answer doesn’t come as easily as it used to, no quip or snap back like it’s easy come easy go. The feckless lie sticks in the back of his throat, burning away like a hot coal choking the life out of him.

I’m fine.

He’s said it more than a million times, and no super-hearing anybody has heard his heart skip a single beat. Or maybe they did, but that thought doesn’t make it any easier, because that means they’ve ignored it a million times, too. And it should be easy, he’s brilliant at lying straight to his father’s face these days. Stiles knows how to twist a definition to make it true, how to believe in nothing and make it something.

He’s fine.

Molehills out of mountains.
Tip of the iceberg.

Shrink it down until it’s just an ember, a single flicker of pain low in his chest. It burns enough to remind him that it’s there, but cool enough for him to force the words out.

He stops counting the tiny holes in the ceiling, and plasters a bright, brilliant lie across his face.

Harry Potter: Why It's Better as Children's Fiction and Why I Hate Albus Dumbledore

Normally, I don’t write HP meta… But following a conversation I had on Ao3 with a reader of my HP/IM cross over fic. I couldn’t help myself. And yet again, here we have a LONG POST.

The Potterverse is undoubtedly magical, and the world JK has created is fascinating. The problem is that it has more holes than a Swiss cheese factory. I believe that the issue stems from the fact that quite simply, it was originally meant to be a children’s series, a fairytale – and it changed.

We all know the first books/movies had an entirely different feel than the ones toward the end. We started out with the magical Sorcerer’s Stone, where the young boy savior was introduced to such a beautiful fascinating world.

We ended up in Deathly Hallows – which compared to SS, is so jaded and dark.

I know the regular explanation about it is that the book “grew” with its readers. I don’t really buy that. For one, it would defy the nature of readership – You don’t have to be 11 to read Harry Potter. Two, even if that had been the case, it was jarring transition. Granted, books change are affected by the lives of their authors. It was always going to happen, especially given that JK struggled with depression for some time. But that doesn’t mean the shift didn’t affect the coherence of the series.

By their nature, children’s fiction are stories that force us to suspend disbelief. The moment JK turned the series from a children’s story to a darker YA saga, it forced us to reevaluate everything that had already been set up before – and a lot of it doesn’t stand up to scrutiny.

I enjoyed Sorcerer’s Stone quite a lot – it was a straightforward, lovely story with a nice, clean cut, happy ending. But post-shift, you sit down and wonder why the hell those obstacles were so easy. And wasn’t it kind of shitty of Dumbledore to give the Slytherins the house cup, then snatch it away from them? And wait, hold up… Did Harry just… burn someone alive? Oh dear…

I enjoyed Chamber of Secrets. Because Harry and parseltongue, what’s not to like? (I have a thing for snakes). But post-shift, you wonder… How the hell did Dumbledore and a school-full of living portraits managed to miss a huge ass basilisk? How was Hermione the only one to figure out what it was? Did nobody really realize the truth about Slytherin’s monster for 50 freaking years?

I enjoyed PoA—and didn’t really think too much on why the hell Hermione would be given the ability to time travel for classes, but Dumbledore couldn’t have used a time turner at any other time to save Harry’s parents. Or why it isn’t be used to… I don’t know—investigate crimes so that people don’t get stuck in Azkaban for 12 years for no reason. Terrible things happen to wizards who meddle with time indeed.

I enjoyed Goblet – and didn’t really question how the hell a binding contract can be enacted between a minor who didn’t even want to engage in said contract and a magical artifact that is apparently sentient enough to be Confounded. Until obviously, I did. (Also, Rita, Hermione, bug jar. Nuff said).

To be fair, Goblet did mark a noticeable change in tune in the series from the beginning, but it truly became noticeable at the end, with the return of Lord Voldemort and Cedric’s death.

Prior to Goblet, in the other stories, Harry always somehow managed to save the day at the end. Not so in Goblet, and this is the moment when the series takes a truly dark note - with the useless death of an innocent school boy who was literally only collateral damage.

That being said, there are a huge number of other things that, taken out of the context of a fantasy fairytale, make no sense. But since I don’t want this post to get huge – I’ll only go into detail in two things. First on the list – child abuse and the Dursleys.

Oh, it’s raining.

The muted colors blurred against the back car window as they ran together in a mosaic fashion. Rain continued to pelt against the sleepy windshield as Mr. Weasley drove – flew rather, above the mountains and forests nearest to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He tapped his fingers against the old steering wheel, an unheard tune playing softly in the old wizards mettle.

In the backseat sat the lazy Y/N, eyes drooping low as the rain continued to compel her to sleep. Latched to her side was the tall weasley twin, George; His freckled cheek pressed dopely against her shoulder, his lanky arms crossed loosely around his chest, and his tall legs leaned daintily onto her own. Fred, on the other hand, had dozed off and left his head to rest against the window opposite to her own. Ron was snoring lightly in the front seat nearest to his father.

As thunder purred in the air above them, Y/N was brought back to her senses, stirring quietly and straightening herself slightly as not to disturb George. A warm smile spread across her heavenly features as she looked at the Boy. George and her had been friends since their first year and were now in their fifth together. Y/N had remembered the twin’s first impression on her as George had sauntered over to her, bent down to her eye level and simply inquired that she was “Rather short, did you know that?” Y/N had promptly twisted his foot and walked off.

George liked her instantly.

“ ‘m so pretty, i know…” George mumbled as he used one of his willowy hands to rub his eyes. He rubbed his cheek against Y/N’s shoulder as he spoke, unmoving. Y/N’s nose reddened as he spoke, embarrassed that he’d caught in her staring at him so creepily.

“Pretty annoying.” She added.

“Ha.Ha, little Y/N, always the comedic relief, yeah?” George slipped his lanky frame up the car seat, slouched down so far that his head almost touched the backseat. Y/N nodded her head in agreement.

“I like to think so, I mostly just wanted to let you know how ugly you are.” she joked.

George laughed mid yawn, coughing into an award laugh.

“So true, L/N. Sooo True.

Kate's Magical Lust (18+)

(note. Short story for @blueberryballoons contains breast and butt expansion, and suggestive themes)

“Humph.” Kate pouted as she sat down at the edge of her bed. She just came home after a long day of college classes. She stared straight ahead into the mirror in front of her that stood on top of her dresser. She eyed herself up and down, straightening her back and turning her head from side to side. She stood up from the bed and turned around in the mirror, bending over and trying every sexy pose she could think of. No matter what Kate did, she still wasn’t confident enough in her body. She didn’t think she was pretty, flawless, or gorgeous as her friends always told her she was. She sighed and flopped back onto the bed, staring up into the ceiling.

“I just wish my body would change, I’m so sick of the same old me. I want bigger boobs and a bigger ass like all the other girls I know. It’s not fair.” She groaned. Suddenly a low rumbling shook the room slightly, flickering the lights on and off. She looked around the room in fear, she’d never been in an earthquake before. She stood up and was about to run for the open doorframe when suddenly there was a loud crash. The double Windows to the left of her bed sprung open and a small purple glittery from came tumbling in through the air like a badly thrown football. It clattered to the ground and rolled a few times, letting out little polite “Ooh”-s and “Eek”-s as it spun.
“Oh dear, oh my, oh heavens.” The small little woman mumbled to herself as she stood to her feet brushing dust and paint and wood chips off of her glittery purple dress. She was no taller than 3 feet, had a face caked with makeup, silver gray hair pulled up into a bun, and carried a child’s plastic magic wand. Kate stood there leaning against the dresser, her hand over her heart with an expression of shock painted on her face.

“Why hello there darling!” The woman cheerfully chided. “Sorry for such a rude entrance, I’m still getting use to the new wings.” She giggled, pointing to the fluttering neon wings on her back. Kate still stood there frozen in disbelief.

“W-Who…” Kate whispered quietly, slowly recoiling from the shock and stepping closer to the magical woman.

“Now that’s no way to greet your fairy godmother!” The woman said playfully.

“M-My fairy wha?” Kate continued to mumble.

“Come give me a hug, darling!” She said so reassuringly that Kate began to step forward. She crouched down onto one knee as the fairy wrapped her small gloved hands around Kate and gave her a tight hug. “My, my, you feel so thin child. What are these people feeding you? Tsk tsk.” She said disapprovingly.

“So you’re my fairy godmother? Like in the movies?” Kate asked with childlike wonder, staring into the fairy’s eyes.

“Yes, yes! Of course. Every young girl has one. You can call me Bellinda.” She said with a smile on her kind, aged face. “Now, I heard you muttering some nonsense about your frame. I understand it’s causing you some distress. In my opinion you should love yourself no matter how you look, especially a girl as beautiful as you.” Bellinda smiled stroking Kate’s cheek with the back of her palm. Kate smiled back, her cheeks blushing. She stood up from her crouched position. Bellinda followed Kate, her wings flapping effortlessly like those of a hummingbird as she raised two feet in the air to match Kate’s height and just hovered there.

“Now you’re in luck little lady. You see fairies like me that have been around a while have the ability to grant one major wish every month or so. I’m ready, are you?” Bellinda asked.

“Uh, well I-” “Great! Now take that hoodie off, we wouldn’t want to damage it. All you’ll need is a plain white t-shirt and some bottoms you don’t care very much for.” Bellinda said sternly as she began to wave some kind of magic over the end of the wand. Kate stood there for a minute confused before she turned around and walked to her closet and changed.

Two minutes later Kate emerged in a baggy white t-shirt and some running shorts. She stood there in a cute, awkward way with her hands in her pockets waiting for Bellinda’s approval. The Fairy turned her head, “Oh! Perfect! Now come here dear.” Kate walked over to Bellinda. “Stand here in the middle of the room” She said “Yes, perfect.”

Bellinda began to wave her wand in the air, magic glitter and sparkles appearing around the end of the wand as she muttered some nonsense spell.

“Bippity…Boppity….BOOP!!” She yelled as a pink laser blast shot out of the end of the wand, sending Bellinda across the room. The beam shot directly into Kate’s belly before disappearing and encasing Kate in a pink aura that made her feel funny for a moment, like her whole body had fallen asleep, and then the aura faded. Kate stood there in the moonlight, the room filled with silence, looking down at her body for any noticeable changes.

“Nothing happ-” Kate stopped herself. A small muffled sound could be heard, like an inflated balloon slowly letting out air. She looked down as she felt a pressure around her chest. She looked down the collar of her loose shirt and saw her bra slowly begin to push out and rise, obscuring the view of her flat stomach.

“Oh my god.” Kate whispered. She gently placed her hands onto her tits, feeling them press out into her hand. They were filling with air like balloons! She was completely fascinated, feeling her boobs grow bigger, rounder, and perkier. And it was soon visible as her breasts surpassed a B cup, pressing out against the white fabric. She was amazed, watching her once small boobs grow bigger and bigger before her eyes and they showed no sign of stopping. A sudden feeling of arousal washed over her.

That feeling was quickly overridden by a new sensation. She felt the same pressure as before only around her backside. She tried to look over her shoulder left and right but couldn’t. She jogged over to the standing mirror, her new still-growing tits bouncing with each step. She turned to the side and arched her right leg. What she saw she couldn’t believe. Her once loose running shorts seemed to be shrinking in size. The loose cuffs began to ride up her thighs as they thickened and plumped up along with her butt. Her ass began to grow fatter and fatter, filling out the backside of the shorts. She spun around, seeing her perky bubble butt continue to grow along with her new thunder thighs. She was being flooded with this feeling of arousal. She’d never been turned on by her own body, and now she finally could.

Her ballooning tits had stretched and lifted the white t-shirt to the point that it looked like a white crop top displaying her entire stomach. Her shorts were now practically panties, completely wedged between her ass cheeks. The erotic feeling was intense. She had been completely bomb shelled and bimbo-ified. The waves of pleasure ran over her again, as she moaned and quivered. She had to act on this urge immediately. She closed her eyes and absent-mindedly crawled into bed entirely powered by pleasure. Under the covers she began to rip off her ruined clothing and appreciate her new ass.

“I’ll leave you alone for this part dear.” Chuckled Bellinda as she fluttered out the window, it closing behind her leaving a trail of purple glitter tinkling to the ground.

Summary:  The infamous New Girl- the one who was supposedly kicked out of her old school for doing something terrible- ends up not only resembling that of a Disney princess, she also ends up being Lena Luthor’s brand new friend, sort of. (Even if they were both kind of forced into it.)

When the rumors began about the incoming student, and how she’d supposedly gotten kicked out of her last school, Lena wasn’t exactly sure what she was expecting when she was informed that she’d have to show the new student around, but she did know that the doe-eyed blonde behind square glasses certainly wasn’t it.

Secrets in Time // Chapter 1

Characters: Kuro, Mahiru, Lily, Hyde, Licht
Ship: KuroMahi, LawLicht
Summary: Mahiru refuse to accept that his friend killed himself and goes to the Alicein Household to find the truth. He didn’t know what to expect from the residences or who to trust. But, with Kuro, they discover secrets hidden in the mansion. {Suspense AU}


Ch. 1 // Ch. 2 //

“Help! Someone help me!” Kuro followed the voice and was shocked to find a man hanging from the wall. At first, Kuro could only stare up at him in disbelief. He didn’t recognize the man so he knew he didn’t work for Alicein family. Kuro was employed to the family as a guard and often patrol around the gate surrounding the mansion.

But the man clinging to the wall was different from the other thieves he seen throughout his employment. Kuro sarcastically called up to the man. “Hey, do you know that you’re trespassing?”

“Oh, thank God!” Mahiru looked down and saw a man standing beneath him. It was raining heavily and he didn’t know how much longer he could hold onto the edge of the wall. He rushed to explain his situation.

“I’m not trespassing but I can understand why you thought that. My name’s Mahiru Shirota and I’m here for the appraiser position. I have an interview at five but the gatekeeper wouldn’t let me in. I didn’t want to be late so I tried to climb over the wall. I saw tree branches reaching over the wall so I thought there was a tree on the other side that I could use to climb down. Thinking simply, this should’ve worked.”

“What’s simple about that plan?” Kuro sighed to himself. The tree was too far for Mahiru to reach and the branches near the wall were too thin to support a man’s weight. “Just wait there and I’ll get a ladder to help you down. Don’t go anywhere.”

“Where do you think I’ll go?” Mahiru snapped back at him and Kuro chuckled to himself. “Please be quick! I don’t know how much long I can hang on.”

No sooner did he finished the sentence, did the rain became more powerful and the water loosened his grip on the wall. Mahiru desperately tried to catch onto something to save himself but his hand slipped and he fell. Kuro rushed to save him and reached out his arms to catch him. He fell into Kuro’s arms and his weight sent them both crashing to the ground.

They were both in shock so it took them a moment to recover from the fall. Mahiru opened his eyes hesitantly and he found himself sprawled across the man. With a flurry of apologies, Mahiru climbed off the man. He could feel heat creep up his cheeks but the man didn’t reveal any emotion on his face. “I’m sorry! But thank you for saving me.”

“Can’t deal. Hugh’s going to yell at me for getting dirty.” Kuro sighed and looked down at the mud coating his pants. “But are you okay?”

“Yeah, I’m fine. I probably look worst than I feel.” He gave him a reassuring smile and took the hand Kuro held out to him. Mahiru was certain that he looked like a wet dog because of the rain and wind. He took out a napkin from his pocket and held it out to Kuro. “You have some mud on your face. Let me get it for you.”

He didn’t wait for Kuro’s reply before he wiped the dirt from Kuro’s cheek. Mahiru had to stand on his toes to do so because Kuro was slightly taller than him. Kuro was surprised with the small gesture and stepped back. “You don’t need to do that. I’ll just go back to my room to clean up. Don’t you have an interview to go to?”

Mahiru looked at his watch and was relieved when he saw the time. “I still have some time. Hopefully, I can clean up a little bit to make myself presentable. I really need this job.”

“Unless you have a fairy godmother to clean you up, I don’t think there’s much you can do about this.” His hair was soaked and Kuro gently brushed away Mahiru’s hair from his eyes. He only meant it as a casual gesture but caught himself when his eyes locked with Mahiru’s.

“I’ll get one of the maids to get you a towel. Lily’s in charge of things like hiring people so I’ll tell him what happened. He’s a good guy so he’ll understand.” Kuro took his hand back quickly. He walked towards the entrance of the mansion and gestured for Mahiru to follow him.

“Thank you, Kuro!” Mahiru bowed to him quickly before following him. They walked side by side and Kuro watched him carefully. Kuro decided to trust Mahiru because his story was too outlandish to be a lie and Lily told him that he had an interview today but he still had to be cautious. The Alicein were a powerful family and others had tried to rob them in the past.

Kuro walked into the mansion and nodded to DoDo, silently telling him that Mahiru could be trusted. “He’s here for an interview with Lily but he got caught in the rain. Can you get him a towel and something to change into? I’m going to my room to change so just wait in that room, Mahiru.”

“Kuro, look at this meiping vase! This pattern is reminiscent of the Song dynasty.” Mahiru looked over his shoulder to Kuro, his eyes bright with fascination. Kuro remembered Mahiru mentioning that he was applying for a position as an appraiser. “It’s beautiful but it’s a shame that it’s not authentic. There are small hairs on the etching so this was probably made by a machine.”

“You have a good eye.” Mahiru jumped slightly when a voice spoke next to him. The tall man that stood next to him now appeared so quietly that it shocked Mahiru. But he gave Mahiru a kind smile. “My name’s Lily. We spoke over the phone and I’m glad you’re interested in the job. I know it’s rather short notice.”

“It’s no trouble at all. I’m just excited for the opportunity to be able appraise the Alicein’s legendary heirlooms.” Mahiru beamed. The Alicein family had many heirlooms that they were planning to donate to a museum and they wanted someone to appraise them before they were sent to a museum. But Mahiru wasn’t interest in the job or the heirlooms.

Mahiru only wanted to know the truth about what happened to his friend, Licht. Earlier that week, his friend took a job with the Alicein family as a pianist. From their conversations, he thought that Licht was happy so it was a complete shock when he was told that Licht had died. According to the police, Licht had jumped off a cliff located near the Alicein’s mansion.

But anyone who knew Licht would know that he would never kill himself. Mahiru tried many times to convince the police to reopen the case but refused to do so no matter how many times he asked them. He knew that if he wanted to find the truth, he would have to look for it himself. When he saw the job posting, Mahiru knew it was his opportunity.

Someone in this mansion killed his friend and Mahiru was determined to discover who.


“You want me to watch over him?” Kuro narrowed his eyes at Lily’s request.

“Yes. It’s just a safety precaution to prevent the heirlooms from being stolen. Mahiru seems like a very trustworthy and genuine person but it doesn’t hurt to be safe. You’ll be pardon from your duties as a guard and all you have to do is stay by Mahiru’s side. It’s an easy job, Kuro. Please do this for me, Kuro! There’s no one I trust more than you.”

“Fine.” Kuro sighed. Lily was his brother and worked with the Alicein family much longer than he had. The Alicein were like a second family to Lily and Kuro knew how important they were to him. So, Kuro couldn’t refuse his brother.

“Thank you, Kuro!” Lily hugged his brother. “He’ll be staying in your room to make the job easier for you.”

“Troublesome, I’m already regretting my decision.” Almost all of the employees lived in the Alicein’s mansion and had their own rooms. Most had no where to go and the Alicein provided them a home. “Can’t he just have a room next to mine or something? Sharing a room isn’t going to make my job easier.”

“I already had one of the maids move another bed into the room and Mahiru is already his things in so there’s no room for argument. Maybe you’ll actually become close with him.” Lily suggested.

“I doubt it.” Kuro had difficulty allowing himself to become close with people and could be distant so Lily hoped that interacting with people would help him. “That guy tried to climb a wall in a storm. Only a crazy person would do something like that. I wouldn’t do that no matter how much this job is paying.”

“Keep an open mind, Kuro. This should be an easy job for you. Just make sure that he doesn’t steal or damage anything. If he does anything strange, please tell the master.”

“Whatever,” Kuro sighed. “I’ll keep an eye on him.”

After they finished, Kuro walked back to his room. More specifically, he dragged his feet to his room. He liked his privacy and didn’t appreciate having to share his room with a stranger.  Kuro hoped that Mahiru would keep to himself while they were staying together. But his hopes were dashed when he opened the door to his room.

Kuro barely recognized his room. His room was now clean and organized. The curtains were drawn and light flooded his room. In the center of his room was Mahiru, sweeping. His hair was dry now and he had changed into fresh clothes.

Mahiru looked up when he heard the door open. He couldn’t stop himself from throwing a glare at Kuro. At first, he was grateful that his roommate was Kuro because he seemed to be a kind and dependable person. But seeing his mess of a room, Mahiru questioned his judgement.

“Lily told me you got the job.” Kuro said awkwardly and walked past him to his bed. “Congrats.”

“Thanks, but I want to talk to you. We’re going to be roommates so let’s set some ground rules. You may be comfortable living in a mess but I’m not. I cleaned our room for you this time but I won’t do it next time. I’m an appraiser, not a maid. You’re a grown man so you can clean up after yourself. You even left the TV on! You’re a guest in this house so it’s not polite to waste electricity like that.”

Mahiru chastised but he didn’t know if Kuro was listening to him since he only laid in his bed. “Can’t deal.”

“Look Kuro, we’re going to be roommates so we should get along.” Mahiru said and Kuro finally turned to face him. While Mahiru was angry when he saw the mess that was Kuro’s room, he didn’t want to antagonize the man. He wanted to have a few allies he could turn to when he was looking for Licht’s killer.

“Fine,” Kuro thought that it would be easier to give into Mahiru to argue with him. So, he held out his hand to Mahiru and he shook it with a smile.


The storm knocking on a window woke Licht but his vision was still blurry when he opened his eyes. The bed he was in was warm but felt foreign to him so Licht pushed himself into a sitting position. He looked around the small room and winced when he tried to remember how he came to the room. Whenever he tried to recall a memory, his head felt like it was splitting in two.

“You’re finally up!” Licht realized that there was someone else in the room. The blond man had been sleeping on the desk when he heard Licht wake. He looked relieve but Licht didn’t recognize him and narrowed his eyes. The man saw his expression and held up his hands in surrender. “Now, is that any way to treat the man that saved you?”

“Saved me?” Licht repeated but he couldn’t focus on a memory when his head was still spinning.

“You just woke up so everything must be a little fuzzy. You’re just lucky that I was exploring the caves at the base of the cliff. I was shocked to see an angel falling from the sky and I swam out to save you. If you want to thank me, my name’s Hyde.”

The man still looked confused and Hyde thought back to the night he saw Licht fall off the cliff. He had been when he heard a struggle from the top of the cliff. But when he ran out of the cave, the only thing he saw was Licht falling. He was already injured before he fell into the water and Hyde could only imagine what happened on that cliff.

But someone wanted the man dead so Hyde hesitated to take him to the hospital. He decided to take him home and treated his wounds. Licht developed a fever and Hyde was glad that he was awake now. But the man looked slightly lost as he stared down at his hands. “I fell? I don’t remember anything…”

“I told you, everything’s probably a little fuzzy but it’ll clear up in no time.” Hyde patted his shoulder. “I’ll get you something to eat and an aspirin. You willing to give me your name in trade?”

“… It’s Licht.”

“That’s a nice name.” Hyde started to stand but stopped when Licht grabbed his arm.

“My name’s Licht but that’s all I remember.” His eyes looked genuinely lost and panicked. “I don’t remember falling off a cliff or anything else. Who am I?”

The first time you both went through puberty

At the young age of fourteen years old, Jungkook was slowly getting hit by the reality that girls were something way more different than what he thought. After feeling that pit of rage in his stomach that caused him to experience jealousy, he was now starting to feel something new, strange and confusing. Something that made his body react with him. A new experience that made him uncomfortable about himself. A new feeling that was leading him to slowly take a distance from any living female form. He’d reassure himself and think it was you and not him. Being together with you since kindergarten was amazing and all but as much as he was changing, you were changing as well. Your sudden change brought him to react. He always avoided humans of the opposite sex since childhood and you were the only one close to him which brought him discomfort and awkwardness. How could he keep on being normal around you when he was slowly feeling weird with all of these changes?

‘’Why is it getting so hot in here?’’ jungkook would fan himself while slowly pulling on his tie

‘’Ooh~~ Jungkook-ah… What’s up with the sudden warmth? It’s snowing outside” Hoseok laughs

“Maybe he’s still going through some body changes” Yoongi comments with a subtle smirk

“What are you guys talking about?!” Jungkook glares at them

“You know… the usual changes…” hoseok taps his chin

“I really don’t see where you’re going with this, Jung Hoseok” Jungkook rolls his eyes as he slowly untied his tie “We just had P.E an hour ago”

“No need to act up, it’s all natural…” yoongi opens his textbook “…to feel some heat” he wiggle his eyebrows

“You crazy bastard” Hoseok chuckled “Are you talking about what I think you’re talking about?”

“I have no idea what you’re talking about” Jungkook shots

“Of course he’d pull out the clueless card” Yoongi chewed on his gum coolly

“Jungkook doesn’t pull the clueless card man, he’s actually clueless” Hoseok nudges Yoongi “Look at him. That shook face is anything but aware of what’s going on with those body changes.”

Jungkook decides to ignore his friends and pulls out his school supplies from his bag before sighing. God only knows why he befriended these two idiots. The only classes they shared were P.E and Biology yet they still stuck onto him like glue. Hoseok was absolutely thrilled when he learned that Jungkook his kindergarten classmate was attending the same middle school as him. Having Yoongi sticking to Hoseok all the time, the two of them became friends with Jungkook. The only difference between them was that jungkook would always be one step behind what’s going on. He wasn’t fast to catch on. It wasn’t his nature to be that way but he wanted to avoid anything new that’d throw him off the edge.

As his friends were having some strange discussion he refused to take part in, he notices your presence. He tilts his head to the side as he watches you making your way to enter the classroom. Your gorgeous hair complimenting your feminine face and soft features as your school uniform only made you look prettier. That dress shirt tucked in your skirt seemed to have some weird effect on Jungkook, some unknown magic or some sorcery that’d make him a little flustered.

“Don’t you see the words innocence slowly vanishing from his face at the time we’re talking?” Hoseok shook his head while eyeing jungkook staring at you

“What are you staring at?” Jimin drops his bag on the floor and takes the seat behind jungkook

“N-Nothing.” Jungkook sighs before turning around to look at his friend “I was contemplating whether I should enroll for soccer or climbing” he stares at his hands

“Ooh~ you have some interest in doing more sports?”Jimin replies sweetly “You’re already taking taekwondo aren’t you?”

“Y-Yeah but I mean… it’s not bad to try out something new” jungkook was caught off guard

“Try out something new, my butt” Jimin chuckled before shocking jungkook with his low creepy voice “I know you were basically ogling at Y/N. No need to hide it from your buddies, buddy” he’d punch jungkook’s arm while the latter rubs his sensitive arm in response

“That hurts. AND NO I-I WASN’T STARING”

“Sure you were staring at the door or the desk next to her” Jimin sighs

“Y/N just looks different lately …” Jungkook comments to jimin in a low tone

“Oh yeah?” Jimin flips the page of his book before adjusting his alluring glasses “Different? Hm. I wonder. “He taps his chin “Maybe you’re the one who sees her under a new light. I got to admit she’s pretty cute…” he smiles softly as he watches you talking with your other friend

“Yeah I guess she’s cute” Jungkook raises an annoyed brow at how jimin just called you cute.

“Yeah, super CUTE” Jimin smirks while lowering his glasses, making sure to break a nerve on jungkook’s face by pissing him off.

“I don’t even blame you, she’s so cute I can’t even keep my eyes off her” Jungkook replied shooting daggers from his eyes

“Yeah, so cute I almost want to ask her out” jimin’s smug facial expression grew bigger

He knew exactly where to push the buttons to make jungkook angered. Jimin found this sight of his friend so entertaining. He was aware of everything since childhood thanks to his very good observation skills . He saw Jungkook growing and getting redder by the day. Jimin knew everything and decided to keep it to himself while playing along with his friend in order to make him realize that you were more than mere childhood friend.

“PARDON?” Jungkook stands up and hits his fist on his desk

“Shit back down Romeo and don’t make a scene “Jimin stared at jungkook before chuckling “You may not know it, but I’m your fairy god mother”

“Have you finally reached the end of crazy, Park Jimin?” Jungkook scoffed “First you talk about dating Y/N and then you bring up Fairy godmothers. Did Yoongi punched you that bad for you to be spouting this non sense?”

“Yoongi broke his wrist because of that” Jimin commented “We were boxing, I never expected him to get hurt when I was the one who got punched in the face”

“Yeah. Thank you Jimin for breaking my wrist again. I wasn’t forced to run ten laps with the group in P.E this morning” Yoongi stares at jimin

“Yoongi are you a Masochist? Do you enjoy torture? Or maybe you like Jimin hurting you” Hoseok asks in a scandalized tone

“Who cares about getting hurt, I still got exempted from the ten laps run this morning, so I’m still happy. I don’t want to waste my stamina on such a waste of time” Yoongi rolled his eyes

“What stamina is even residing inside your body?” Hoseok scoffed

“The one I use to make diss tracks against you”

“I’m TELLING YOUR MOTHER.” Hoseok points at Yoongi

“DON’T TELL MY MOTHER” Yoongi eyes shot open“ I HAVE PIANO LESSONS TONIGHT. DO YOU WANT BOTH OF US TO DIE???!!”

“You still haven’t told your mom about your love for rap?” Hoseok blinks

“I-I just can’t ….” Yoongi sighs before rubbing his sensitive wrist “Oww… I don’t even know if I’ll be able to play tonight with my wrist being like this. Let’s hope the lesson gets canceled.”

“Your face must be like a rock to hurt Yoongi like this. You hard headed shorty.” Jungkook stares at Jimin

“Not as much as you. You only gained in height and nothing else” Jimin fires back

“Oh you want to start it?!” Jungkook glares back at jimin

What jimin said next was unexpected and brought jungkook completely off the hook.

“Spill it. What bothers you this time?” Jimin sighs before supporting his face with his fist on his cheek “Is it the way she smiles? How her hair looks different? How girly are fingers are? Or maybe…Oh I get it. Is it the length of her skirt that is bothering you?” Jimin nodded “Sure, I can tell that her skirt might look shorter than the usual” he sticks out his tongue

Jungkook could feel that sudden blood rush through his veins and his cheeks turning a slight shade of red. He was busted again. Jimin knew everything and it wasn’t the first time that Jungkook shared his distress over you with the boy. Everyday he’d end up talking to jimin about how something looks or seems different. What he didn’t knew was that the problem wasn’t you, but him. He was the one changing and having you gradually changing just like him brought him so much confusion.

Jungkook’s Jungshook thoughts were processing through his brain before he got the shock of his life thanks to his other friend.

“What are you talking ABOUT, MY YOUNG EVOLVING MALE SPECIES!!!!??” Taehyung randomly pops out of nowhere as he slings his arms around the boys’ necks “Ooh~~~ what is this heavy tension here…?”

“What’s with the sudden ‘male specie’?” Jimin looked perplexed and on the verge to laugh “Why am I a Specie? I need some explanations bruh. You can’t call me like that and expect me to—“

“BUT PARK JIMIN. DIDN’T YOU HEAR ABOUT IT???!!” Taehyung shouted

“About what?” Jimin lifts his head in interest “Did you find a girl who’s willing to kiss you with that remaining chocolate on your face?” Jimin chuckled “You ate a cake before coming to class didn’t you?”

“How did you know?” Taehyung blinked innocently  

“Wipe off your face dude, you have chocolate everywhere from your lips to your cheeks” Jungkook laughed while throwing his handkerchief at Taehyung

“Oh… maybe that’s why Jennie was laughing when she saw me” Taehyung’s eyes rounded in shame

“Did you just embarrass yourself in front of Jennie?!! For real?” Jimin burst in laughter “Jennie the cute one with the nice smile?” he replies in his busan accent

“Who’s Jennie?” Jungkook asks

“You don’t know Jennie? WHERE DO YOU LIVE? WHAT ARE YOU.HOW DO YOU KEEP UP WITH LIFE?” Hoseok shouts from the background

“Don’t blame the kid, he refuses to socialize with females since kindergarten” jimin replies

“You still haven’t replied to my question” Jungkook frowns “Who’s Jennie? And why are you making a fuss over her?”

“I’ll tell you one thing or two my little jungkookie” Hoseok puts his arm around jungkook’s shoulder “Jennie Kim is the queen who steals your heart with a smile and never gives it back. “

“Do you like her?” jungkook asks innocently while Hoseok chokes on his water

“ More like he’s low key obsessed with her but he’s too shy to even go see her” Jimin chuckles

“Who’s shy?!!!I’m not shy!” Hoseok scowled

“Tsk tsk tsk…. And Taehyung embarrassed himself in front of her, way to go kim Tae” jimin comments

“It’s okay, I still love chocolate more than girls. Food before girls.” Taehyung makes a thumbs up

“ Jennie is way out of your league Tae, even if you wanted her she wouldn’t even glance at you” Jimin commented

“I actually second that one, Tae, Let’s pick food no matter what” jungkook extends his hand for a bro fist with taehyung

“Yeah maybe if you look at food, you won’t look at Y/N differently” Jimin stares into space before a smirk creeps up his lips “Or maybe you won’t be able to get her off your head while looking at food”

“What?” Jungkook blinks

Jimin was implying something but seeing that his friend was too oblivious and innocent to catch on the hidden message, he decided to shrug it off and do as if he didn’t said anything.

“No nothing” Jimin shook his head “So what’s up Tae? Didn’t you had some high key super exciting news to announce?”

“OMG YES! TODAY WE’RE LEARNING HOW BABIES ARE MADE” Taehyung giggled

And with that Jungkook’s jaw dropped ten floors down threatening to dislocate his jaw. Of course, he’d never pay attention to lectures as the usual but this time it was different. Whether he wanted it or not, he’d end up paying attention to this lecture because it was way more than just a lecture.

“In other words, we’re learning reproduction” yoongi commented

“R-REPRODUCTION??!!” Jungkook gasped as cold sweats formed on his neck

“Look at Jungkook getting all red and bothered” Hoseok burst out laughing

“I didn’t hear about this?” Jimin furrowed his brows

“Me neither” yoongi blinked

“Are you guys that ignorant?! Seriously??!!!! It was my first time to ever listen in class” taehyung replies  “I can’t believe you don’t pay attention to class.”

“Are you for real? I’m the only one who takes notes in this squad of dumb idiots. There’s no way I missed such an important detail” Jimin shook his head

“Missing which details?”

The sudden tone of your girly voice shut all the guys off from the conversation they were having. Yoongi pretended to be asleep, Hoseok was randomly petting yoongi’s hair while Jungkook was freezing on his seat stiffly .Jimin simply smiled softly at you and Taehyung was ready to throw himself on you with excitement, like the usual.

“Y/n!!! You won’t BELIEVE IT!!!” Taehyung grabbed your hands gently in his bigger ones

“What is it? “You smiled brightly “You’re so smiley smiley” you laughed at your friend

Jungkook and Jimin both shared a look with each other before jimin nodded and decided to take the matter in his hands

“Hey… Taehyung sit back down on your seat will you” Jimin pulled taehyung by the back of his collar to make him sit beside him “And BE QUIET”

“Why?! I was just going to share the good news with Y/N!” Taehyung pouts

“Good news?” You ask

“THERE’S NO GOOD NEWS! I don’t know why you call this good news but it definitely sounds like anything but good to me” Jungkook shook his head while his eyes were slowly getting larger from the shock he just got

“What is it?” You poke Jimin’s shoulder “Tell me!”

“I don’t think it’s something you need or want to know” Jimin rolled his eyes

“Wow, so you’re going to keep this for yourselves and leave me in ignorance?” you scoff “It’s a guy thing again?” you frown

“I promise you Y/N, It’s nothing you’d be thrilled about” Jimin sighed “Taehyung is just being dumb again”

“Y/N, THEY’RE BULLYING ME AGAIN” taehyung points at jimin before sticking his tongue out

“Leave him alone” You pull taehyung to your side and ruffle his hair lovingly

“He copies everything you do girl, how can you bear with him?” Hosoek tilts his head “Are you sisters or something?” he chuckles

“Shut up Jung Hoseok and give me a massage” Yoongi order Hoseok who proceeds with giving a shoulder massage to yoongi

Jungkook tenses as he looks at you interacting with Taehyung as closely as he had that side glare ready to cut a bitch. He wasn’t feeling the way you were ruffling Taehyung’s hair today. There’s was too much action between your fingers and Taehyung’s scalp for jungkook to not feel envious.

“Jeon Jungkookiieeeee~~~~” you turn around to look at a bothered jungkook

He had all those thoughts flying through his head back and forth. The way you touched Taehyung’s hair was bothering him again yet it was only natural for you to make such a gesture towards your friend. He knew in fact that all of this was abnormal and friends shouldn’t get jealous over things like these.

“Hey…” you poke his shoulder “are you okay?” You furrow your brows while looking at jungkook’s focused gaze

“Where were you?” Jungkook asks without looking at you and opening up his book

“Oh, I was with Lisa” You smiled at him awkwardly “You know that new transferred student from Thailand? She’s super sweet! I just had to make her visit the school”

“Lisa” jungkook nodded his head along as if he knew who you were talking about

“You don’t know her right?” You chuckled “She’s that student with blonde hair and caramel highlights .She’s so pretty”

“Yeah, I guess she’s good” Jungkook nodded uninterested

“She’s just good? Jungkook-ah… Lisa is a goddess” Taehyung replies dreamily “She blessed our school with her presence”

“Oh god, jungkook doesn’t know who Lisa is? Are you SERIOUS?!”Hoseok  blinked

“Exactly what I’m saying. You can’t miss Lalisa and her swag~” Taehyung replies dreamily “And she smells so good”

“Does she?” Yoongi raises a brow “Did you sniff her?”

“Y-You’re ridiculous! I just lent her a hoodie yesterday and she gave it back that’s all!” Taehyung blinked

“Okay?” Jungkook raised a brow “So you like her?” he asked again

“Why does jungkook asks us this question every time a girl is involved” Hoseok blushes “You’re making me all flustered”

“I don’t know man, you just seem too enthusiastic about it” Jungkook comments

“what IS WRONG WITH YOUR PANTS JUNGKOOK?! THIS IS LISA WE’RE TALKING ABOUT. LISA IS LIKE A NUCLEAR BOMB. SHE MADE MY HEART EXPLODE” Hoseok shouts from the background

“Ew hoseok “you stare at Hoseok “What’s with the sudden pants talk” you nudged his arm

“That’s because pants talks are a must in middle school” Hoseok nodded

“What is he saying” you shook your head “That’s gross and pants talk are definitely not of your age”

“He’s basically trying to tell you subtly that we’re having sex-ed today for the first time” yoongi reply nonchalantly

“Oh well the secret is out of the bag now “jungkook face palmed “Why Did you felt the need to tell her such an unnecessary detail??!” he scowls at yoongi

“Someone had to voice it out and it’s only natural that someone with swag said it first” yoongi smirked

“Oh, so that’s why you were all acting weird ” you stared at them

“Weird? Who’s weird? I’m not acting weird…” jungkook’s eyes widen as he gulps on his saliva

“Who even talked about you” You stared at jungkook “Why? Do you feel concerned?” you nudge his shoulder and he tenses up

“N-Not at all?!” he stares at the ceiling “You’re the one acting up all strange”

“I don’t see why I’d be acting weird. Sex is something natural” you reply

“Oh well shit, how COME THIS WORD COME OUT OF YOU WITH NO SHAME??!!” Hoseok blushes a third shade of red

“Because there’s nothing to be ashamed of?” you raise a brow “You guys are overreacting over nothing “

“Overreact? “ Jungkook lifts up his face to meet eyes with yours “It may seem easy for you, but it’s different for us”

“What is easy? How different is it” you prop yourself to sit on Jungkook’s desk as it’s a habit you got used to.

As Jungkook senses your presence sitting on his desk he immediately turns his head the other way. He gulps on his saliva and his palms get sweaty as soon as his gaze falls on the soft skin of your thighs. Jimin may have been right in a certain way, your skirt was bothering him because it brought too much attention to your soft legs. The way you crossed your legs and how he had a perfect side vision of you.

“I don’t know. I don’t want to talk about this” jungkook makes a face before untying the side of his tie and loosening up his shirt

The Long Dark - Part 2

 Part 1 | Part 2 |  Part 3 | Part 4Part 5 | Part 6

Characters: Thorin, Company, Reader, assorted dwarves.
Setting:
Erebor after BOTFA (fix-it, Durins live AU).
Synopsis:
As the rebuilding of Erebor begins, Thorin and his Company take on the new responsibilities their station demands, leaving you to find a place in the city on your own. Isolated and lacking the skills to make a living in a city of craftsmen, your situation seems hopeless. So while Dwalin and Bofur make unlikely fairy godmothers, you can’t afford to be choosy. And then the king gets involved, changing your life in ways that are as exciting as they are scary. (Incorporates “imagine helping with the clean-up of Erebor” from imaginexhobbit.)
Warnings:
Eventually NSFW. Angst. Fluff. Slow burn of sorts. Excessive cluelessness on the part of the main couple.
Notes:
Thanks a bunch to my lovely beta, @oakenshieldgisborneandwinchester, who made this fit for public consumption. All remaining mistakes are mine alone.
Words:
5870




The next day you felt a little better. You wandered Erebor again, observing the pattern of its breathing, pulsing life. It was becoming a well oiled machine, and yet you still wondered where you might fit in. But if there was no place for you in the fabric of old patterns and routines, maybe you could carve out something new that was just yours.

Bofur was right. You could start writing down all you could remember about indoor plumbing, for one. The common privies were only one step removed from a hole in the ground, and water still had to be collected at a number of interior wells. If you could do anything about that, it would be a much more valuable service than polishing a stupid sword. Then, there was the food. Erebor had ample food stores, but no way to grow anything, which struck you as singularly unwise given the still strained relationship with its neighbors. Perhaps you could think of something…

Already you felt lighter. Except for the fact that you didn’t remember very much about cultivating veggies or how indoor plumbing actually worked, you were set. Bouncing happily, you procured some parchment, a quill, ink and a wide candle from a puzzled dwarf, then retreated to your room to sketch.

Hours later, a decisive knock at your door made you look up from your work. You winced as the cramped muscles in your neck protested the sudden motion.

The knocking came again, louder now. If it was possible for a knock to sound impatient, this one did.

You looked around you at your pitiful accommodations, then down at your too-large dress. Dwarrowdams were built a lot sturdier than you, and you hadn’t been able to find clothes that fit you in the whole of Erebor. As you didn’t have enough money left to have something made, you only had two sets of clothes — one that fit and had seen you through most of the quest, and one that you had procured here. At the moment you wore the latter, a dress which hung around your frame like a potato sack. You only put it on when you didn’t plan on going out. Well. Whoever wanted to visit would have to bear it.

“Enter,” you called.

The door swung open to reveal a scowling Thorin.

You jumped up. Your stool toppled to the ground with a clatter. Your heart seized that moment to give a vicious lurch and started fluttering like a crazed thing.

Member: Joshua
Genre: Fluff
Word Count: 2,152


The first time you realized you had utterly fallen for Joshua, it was when you had woken up from a nap. You hadn’t even realized you had fallen asleep, but once you had awakened you could only focus on the sleeping boy next to you. Joshua had a look of sleepy content as he laid next to you, the rhythmic rise and fall of his chest creating the only noise between you.

You wished you could have slept there forever, turned to dust in the arms of Joshua. You wished you could have spent eternity with your face inches apart from Joshua. His legs wrapped around one of your own softly but with a grip somehow so tight because even in his sleep he was afraid to let you go. You had wished like a child praying to a shooting star that one day he would feel such feelings as you did.

Son of the Park’s (Part 5)

Jinyoung has been a great help around the house. He cleaned with you and did dishes too after every meal. It was another evening after dinner and he was alongside you by the sink. He’d play sneaky and purposely splash water at you, but you leave it. You’d push him aside with your hips only for him to push back.

“Ah, this feels like a perfect home now.” Mrs. Hwang interrupted from behind in her wheelchair. “You two kids are a joy to have around. It puts me at ease.”

Eva-centric POV. Slow-burn Chris/Eva.

A Family We Chose For Ourselves

Chapter 2: Penetrators (3122 words)
The girls make paper mâché sex toy decorations for the Christmas tree and Chris is missing.

The Penetrators and Yakuza rivalry run much deeper and more dangerous than anyone thought possible, until one of them ends up paying a heavy price. Chris was on his way to the Kose group Christmas party that night.

He never made it there.

Canon relationships. Ensemble cast. Friendships all round. Whump-Hurt/Comfort holy trinity. Injured Chris. Worried William. Worried Eva.

[ch1 / ao3]


“So you and Chris, huh?”

The question comes as an eerie déjà vu, but instead of the guilt she felt when she heard it the first time, Eva has to physically supress the sheepish grin threatening to emerge. She remembers the same voice telling her not to long ago to break up with her boyfriend and hook up with Chris. She’d been taken aback and offended at the time, angry even. Like who did this person think she was, telling her to do something like that? But Sana had been straightforward and factual in her argument and despite feeling slightly insulted by the suggestion, Eva really could find no fault in Sana’s reasoning.

  • like seriously this is the cutest thing in the entire world I hope I can convey all the cuteness !!
  • like usual I’m gonna start with the build up
  • okay so I personally consider taehyung to be a very traditional kid and even though I’m sure he would be all for having fun while dating, if he ever wanted to consider kids he would want the two of you to be married first
  • like he definitely definitely definitely would want kids and I think he wouldn’t want to wait very long to have them but he would want to make sure you two were married
  • he’s just very traditional and in Korea still I’m p sure, most people get married then have kids
  • that’s also what his parents and family would expect, and he definitely wouldn’t want to upset them in any sort of way
  • once the two of you were married though he would be like alright time for babies
  • I mean if you weren’t ready he wouldn’t push you at all he’s very respectful and considerate
  • but he definitely loves children with all of his heart and he wouldn’t want to wait for very long to have his own mini tae running around the house
  • and so he would totally be about bugging you every day
  • I know in that one interview he said he wanted five if he had the time // was good at it (whatever that means???)
  • and that obviously means you would have to start kinda early?
  • I could see him settling down and getting married while Bangtan was still active
  • definitely less active and when they’re all somewhat older but still
  • to be very honest with you if you were totally okay with it, I think baby number one would end up being a honeymoon baby
  • and you guys get back from the honeymoon and you’re not feeling the greatest
  • you’re kind of light headed and dizzy and you feel nauseous
  • and taehyung, God bless his soul, loves you very much but is kind of oblivious to it
  • like he realizes you’re not feeling your best but he rides it off as jet lag
  • and you kinda assume that too?? like we just got back from halfway across the world I’m probably still in vacation time
  • but it doesn’t go away
  • your husband is busy with his promotions cause he was gone for a bit on your honeymoon and so he’s not home very much in the beginning of the pregnancy
  • like in the beginning you lay on the couch and mope and watch psych or something cause you’re really not feeling your best
  • you’re kind of worried that maybe you got sick overseas like maybe there was something in the water??
  • but then you stop and think about it
  • “I’ve puked five times in the last week, I hate orange juice, I’ve been dizzy and frazzled for no reason”
  • and you just blink and peek down at your belly “oh shIT”
  • even though at this point in the game you’re not showing it’s way too early for that
  • and so you’re off running best you can to the pharmacy place and you just slam the pregnancy test down on the counter
  • and the lady just gives you a small smile and she rings you up and she kinda whispers “good luck”
  • and you smile and thank her and you’re running back to check this bad boy out
  • and obviously it comes back positive and you’re just !!!
  • and you know Tae is gonna be more like !!!!!!!!
  • and you really want to make it special for him, you want to make the whole reveal something really memorable
  • you know this is like his biggest dream in the entire world, to be a father
  • and so you begin to plan
  • but every idea you come up isn’t good enough for him??
  • “okay but a cake is the stupidest idea in the world why would I even do that”
  • “puns? really? that’s the best you can do?!”
  • and you’re so busy stressing and planning that you end up crashing on the kitchen table
  • meanwhile taehyung is panicking
  • he was at practice the entire day and he knows you haven’t been feeling the best
  • but whenever he would text you, he would get no reply
  • and he started to call you during his breaks and you wouldn’t pick up then and he was stressed to no extreme
  • he thought maybe you were mad at something?
  • or maybe you had passed out from being so sick and he feels awful that he didn’t pay more attention to your symptoms
  • he asks if he can leave practice early and they let him because they understand this seems like an emergency
  • and he races home and he’s shaking and panicking and he’s calling your name and he opens the door and he sees you right away, snoring at the kitchen table
  • and he sprints over to you and he just shakes you and when you’re somewhat awake he pulls you into a giant bear hug
  • but then he looks down
  • just a little bit
  • just enough to see where you’ve scrawled out all your ideas on how to tell taehyung about your pregnancy
  • and you’re still groggy and half-asleep so you don’t really pay much mind when he picks the notebook up and starts to read from it
  • and his eyes get wide as saucers and he kinda stares down at you??
  • “jagiya…?”
  • and you kinda freeze cause you did not want him to find out like this
  • this was supposed to be the most special surprise of his life and you made it so dull and unimportant?
  • but he squeezes you half to death and he’s squealing and screaming and he’s kissing you all over and he actually picks you up and spins you around
  • and he’s laughing and smiling and he’s tearing up as well and he’s so excited???
  • and he immediately leans down on puts his hands on your nonexistent baby bump and there are tears streaming down his face and they’re happy tears of course
  • and he kisses your belly and he’s whispering
  • “hi baby… I’m your dad!! and you’re my little baby! I can’t wait to hold you and kiss your face all over”
  • throughout the pregnancy he is constantly talking to your stomach
  • every single morning before he gets ready for work he kisses your belly and says hello to the baby
  • “hello mini me how’s it going in there is it comfy are you feeling good?? is it warm enough let me get you a blanket!!”
  • okay let’s talk about the first kick though cause that’s important right??
  • I think it’ll be like you’re watching anime cause he’s trying to expose his child to as many languages as possible from the get go (or that’s what he says anyway)
  • and his hand is just casually on your baby bump like it always is and he’s rubbing like circles there cause that’s cute right?
  • and then the baby kicks boom boom
  • and taehyung is ??? what was that did you move babe??
  • and you just !! taehyung no that was the baby that was the baby !!!
  • and you both start squealing and the baby kicks again and both of you start screaming louder
  • and taehyung is like we need to record this moMENT
  • and he hugs your belly and rubs his face against your shirt so he can get closer to his little baby and he’s like “oh my god jagiya they’re kicking again I can feel the baby kicks right against my cheek”
  • I think taehyung wouldn’t want to find out the gender of his kid but then he wouldn’t be able to handle the suspense at all like he would be such an excitable puppy and he would be like okay we’re finding out let’s gO
  • and you ask the nurse to just tell you so you can make the gender reveal more creative than the actual pregnancy reveal
  • the first time he sees the baby though, like on the ultrasound, he breaks down in tears and he squeezes your hand
  • “jagi, look, look at their little hands! oh my god look at their little feet, the little belly oh my god I’m in love…”
  • and he takes the pictures down to the studio and he hangs them up everywhere for all the other boys to see and yoongi mentions the “alien pics” and taehyung literally whoops his ass
  • anyway gender reveal party !!
  • this is basic (idk a lot cause not thinking about kids rn!!) but you would do the balloon thing! and have everyone over and they have to wear the colors of the gender they think it’s going to be
  • and taehyung is decked out in all blue and so are you honestly the two of you have matching blue on
  • namjoon is wearing blue as well, same with jeongguk and jimin
  • hoseok and yoongi have pink on
  • but seokjin is no place to be found??? like he’s nearly thirty minutes late??
  • but then he shows up at the door in a pink shirt and pink jeans and pink sunglasses with a pink boa and a pink fairy wand too
  • “hello the fairy godmother for this baby has arrived”
  • out of the group I see taehyung having kids first so all the boys are really into this entire thing cause uncles!!!
  • and you guys have lots of cake and cookies and it’s a lot of fun and you have his parents skype calling you for most of the day so they can be part of it!! and his grandparents are on the screen too and they’re all tearing up and sniffling cause their baby is having a baby!!
  • and then it’s finally time and you have this huge huge box and your parent(s) or whoever did the balloons for you so now all you have to do is open it
  • and you count down
  • three
  • two
  • one
  • and flying out come these large blue balloons
  • you and taehyung hold each other and kiss all gushy while jin cries and slams his sunglasses to the ground
  • after that you two now know what clothes to buy and stuff like that!!
  • you end painting the nursery yellow cause baby number two could be a boy !!
  • but he gets so excited about the baby clothes and he has some cute hats for her and lots of pretty dresses and baby shoes for her oh my god !!
  • and his parents ship him the family bassinet all the way from Korea so his little girl can use it too
  • he cries when it comes in the mail and you guys set it up in your room and !!
  • the month the baby is due taehyung is like “sorry you guys aren’t getting me to come into work, my wife could have this child any day now and I’m going to be there for her the moment everything starts happening”
  • I think the first Kim baby would end up being a little early
  • like taehyung insists it’s because the baby can’t wait to finally meet him
  • not like anything unhealthy like not premature baby but the due date ends up being like December 16 and the baby comes like December 9
  • you guys would be sitting at home and tae almost has you bubble wrapped in bubble paper so you don’t hurt yourself
  • and it’s nothing extreme but you don’t expect it
  • taehyung is not okay though like you tell him your water breaks and he’s freaking the hell out he’s running around and trying to find the bag and trying to help you up but he’s wearing himself thin
  • and you kinda push yourself up and give him a look “car now before you die”
  • his hand is on your tummy the entire car ride and he almost gets pulled over for speeding but hello this is his chiLD
  • he stays in the room the entire time there’s no way he’s leaving you
  • during the actual birth he’s calmed a lot more than you thought he would be and he’s holding your hand and sometimes he’ll sing your fave song and sometimes he’ll talk about your favorite memories together to help distract you
  • he’s really supportive and calming and he’s so good at distracting you
  • and then the lil baby finally comes!!
  • and they wash him off and he’s so tiny and taehyung actually sobs it’s not tears or sniffling he sobs as he stares down at his son
  • he gets a little uneasy when the nurse takes him away for the checkup part like he wants his baby in his arms
  • and he kisses you over and over and tells you how proud and happy he is
  • and you get to hold the baby obviously and you guys confirm the name
  • and all the boys are in the waiting room and they all flip when they see the tiny baby boy and they’re so in love from first look !!
  • taehyung would be the best dad out there honestly he would be so wonderful
  • like little man is sobbing one night? he gets up every single time to go calm him down so you can get some rest
  • he loves to sit in the rocking chair and sing lullabies to the baby boy
  • as the baby grows he has Tae’s eyes and nose, but your smile and ears, and a mix of your hair (dark hair is dominant though so his hair would probably be dark right??)
  • and the baby is really giggly like this baby is always laughing and Tae loves to make your son laugh he’s always pulling faces or singing really high pitched !!!
  • he loves to sit down and watch like baby Einstein with the kid like all these educational videos so the baby can learn
  • he loves holding him like if baby falls asleep in Tae’s arm well he’s not putting him in the crib he’s keeping the baby in his arms
  • he loves feeding his baby too like once the kid can eat baby food he likes does the whole airplane thing like open way for the airplane vrooOOOOM
  • he loves shopping for little man and he wants to have somewhat matching family clothes
  • the first word baby says is “appa” or some variant of it and taehyung cries at that and he calls all the boys even though it’s like early in the morning !!!
  • the first steps are a lot later at first taehyung panics cause why isn’t our child walking yet?!?
  • but it’s like you’re sitting there all chill and happy and taehyung has ice cream and he’s eating out of the tub and baby boy is playing with his stuffie on the floor and he takes one look at the ice cream and he pushes himself up and starts waddling over
  • taehyung ends up crying again at this one
  • he has pictures of the kid all up in the studio, even on yoongi’s laptop like pictures are there every time you turn your head
  • he loves going on walks with the two of you down to the park and little baby is in the stroller and he’s singing and pointing out things to the little kid “hey mini me, that’s a butterfly, see butterfly!!”
  • he likes to keep the kid on his chest and read to him with all these funny voices and kiss his nose all the time and be cute !!
  • baby has a lot of daddy’s boy onesies and stuff like that
  • you are always video chatting his parents and showing off your baby
  • and always playing together
  • and I’m gonna continue this post okay like part two cause this is very long

Making Fun a Priority

For Ash’s 2k Writing Challenge. My prompt was Negan’s birthday. Never really done anything like this before (talking about prompts and Negan fics, I’ve written smut before), so be nice, ‘kay?? :):)

@flames-bring-a-ton-of-ash

@negans-network

Summary: As much as she thought today would be like any other day, Brandi was wrong. Completely wrong. Today her job was taking her places she’d never been before. Today she was going to find herself face to face with the one and only, Negan. Today was Negan’s birthday. Today he was in a giving mood.

Warnings: Smut and language.

Bamby

Life was good. Considering the world was falling apart and people were dying but not staying dead, life was good. It had been about two, maybe three years since the dead began to walk and the living began to run. Two years since I’d found myself happier than ever before.

I hadn’t had the best life before. Abuse, depression. Violence, anxiety. I’d worked as a waitress for a sleazy, greasy boss. I’d lived with my alcoholic mother and her pervy boyfriend. I was a student at college, where I had no friends and was a constant target for bullying.

To say the end of the world was a blessing for me, would be an understatement. I thrived in this world. I’d finally found my place. I belonged somewhere. I was… Happy.

Pulling myself out of bed, I moved over to my dresser and grabbed my brush before running it through my hair as I looked at myself in the mirror before me.

There was nothing special about me. I was simple. Plain Jane. Thick, wavy, strawberry blonde hair. Thin pink lips. Large hazel eyes framed by round glasses. Fair skin littered with freckles. A small, pointed nose.

I was thin, too- so much so, you could see some of my bones. But seeing as I was a hard worker and didn’t eat much- a problem caused by my past- that was to be expected. Yet despite my frail body, I was strong, and had some curves- nothing too fancy though.

None of that mattered to me. I liked myself, which was important. I didn’t love myself, but I was working on it. That’s all I cared about. How I saw myself was more important than how others saw me.

Well, actually… I cared about what Negan thought of me.

Negan. He’s the boss around here. Keeps the place running. Makes the rules. Protects everyone. He leads us through the chaos of the world today, while trying to keep some order from the world before. He was smart, and brave, and strong. Cruel, yet kind. Gentle, yet tough. He was the most complex person I’d ever met and I was in love with him.

I was hopelessly and completely in love with the man, and he didn’t even know my name…

Shaking my head- now finished brushing my hair- I put my brush down on the dresser before pulling my hair into a quick bun. Grabbing some clothes from my drawers, I got dressed in a pair of faded jeans and a grey top. Moving over to my bed again, I sat and pulled on my tattered pair of dirty white sneakers.

Now ready for the day ahead, I started for my door, ready to get to work.

anonymous asked:

I wish you would write a fic with Sam as a fairy and Steve as a down on his luck artist who kind of stumbles into a world of magic and they go on adventures trying to get Steve back home thinking he's the chosen one when all along it was Sam who was chosen and they fall in love and everything is magical and great!

Whoa holy shit!!! Idk anything about mythological creatures BUT LISTEN UP!!!!

So Sam is a fairy godmother (father?) instead of a guardian angel. They have an entire society where they get assigned to deserving people and can grant them some wishes until they’re in a better place in life. He gets assigned to little Steve Rogers, the struggling artist who’s sick and really behind on his bills and in DEEP DEEP shit. Sam figures the guy will wish for fame and fortune and that will be that.
But this is Steve we’re talking about here, so he just declines any help at all and asks Sam if he wants to come in for dinner.
Sam’s suffering, because he can’t go home until he helps Steve. He’s also suffering because Steve is just so inherently good that it kills him to see the guy in such deep trouble.
Steve is a little annoyed that his vibe is messed up since he now has a fairy following him around but Sam’s a pretty cool guy. He makes Steve laugh, he’s good company. He’s also stunning. He’s glowing, his skin giving off a gold shimmer, his wings (which can be hidden if they’re in public) shimmer gold and silver. I bet Sam glitters and if he’s not careful and lets his guard down, he’ll leave gold glitter wherever he just was.

Steve starts to paint him then without his knowledge, because how can he not? He’s finishing up his latest work at a coffee shop when someone taps his shoulder, famed art dealer Pepper Potts. Steve doesn’t want to part with the painting, since it’s his Sam. His fairy. His beautiful guide, but he does and pays his water bill on his walk home with Pepper’s card in his pocket.

“You gotta let me do something for you,” Sam begs. Steve’s wheezing, too broke to buy a new inhaler. “Please.” Sam strokes the side of his face and watches as Steve’s cheek gets covered in gold shimmers. “This.. this goes beyond the job for me.”

“Let me paint you,” Steve asks, quiet. “An entire series.”

It’s against the rules maybe but he does. Steve sells every painting. The two of them fall helplessly in love with each other.

Maybe, if Steve never fulfills his wishes, Sam never has to leave

I’ve been focusing on writing Autumn Thorn for a while and ran into some plot issues which I’m currently fixing. I’m just uploading this quick Steve one-shot in between so you guys don’t think I died or something. ;) 
I’ll be honest, it’s kind of a darker version of Cinderella. Cinderogers. I’m going to get that on a t-shirt. Princess Cinderogers. Enjoy, my darlings!

“Midnight”

Steve’s head hit the mat with a sickening crack.
“Pinned you.” You laughed and he let a disgruntled frown grace his lips. Using his feet, he kicked you off of him and then lunged at you. After rolling around a little more, you flattened him onto his back once again.
“Pinned you again. You’re getting slower old man.” You chuckled.

You pulled yourself off of him and helped Steve to his feet.
“I’m not getting slower, you’re just getting faster.” He chuckled lightly.
“Well that tends to happen when you can manipulate time.” You muttered and he widened his eyes.
“Were you cheating again?”
“Absolutely not.” You said, winking before escaping out of the training room door.

How To: Have a Great Meet-and-Greet

As a Character Attendant, I’ve seen my fair share of awful meet-and-greets, as well as a ton of “Magical Moments.” But Alice can’t ride the Teacups with EVERY family, so how are you supposed to guarantee those special memories on your Disney vacation? Well, there’s not foolproof way to do it, but if you follow these suggestions, you’ll find that your interactions with characters becomes a lot more memorable and fun for you and the character!

1. Have a Conversation Piece

I can not tell you how many times I have had to watch a character interaction between a princess and a little girl where the little girl does not say a word. That leaves the princess with very few options when it comes to conversation starting. Most of the time, it revolves around what the little girl is wearing: Florals? Punzie can TALK about flowers. Tiara? Cindy will ask the girl who her fairy godmother is. Ice queen dress? “Queen Elsa! I wasn’t expecting you today!” It is magical for the little girls, but to the princesses, the story is stale. So this is where you spice it up.

 a. Wear something loud

It may be a band t-shirt, a character t-shirt, a flower crown, or just your favorite outfit. If you’re rocking it, they’ll likely turn it into a conversation piece. Jasmine may ask you a few questions about this One Direction that these five four boys are headed in, or Buzz Lightyear may have some deep hidden love for the Ninja Turtles (true story). If you look like the Tremaines or Sleeping Beauty’s Fairies, then the characters are going to say something about it. It gives them a chance to talk about new things, and often times, they have fun with it.

b. Bring something to give them

This usually works better with little kids, but I’ve seen it done with older kids too. Bringing a drawing you did or a small gift is a fun way for the characters to gush about YOUR skill or YOUR taste. It’s also really fun for the characters to have something to look forward to eating/enjoying/putting on their wall when they head back to Neverland, Wonderland, Arendelle, or the Enchanted Forest.

I once was with Cinderella in the castle and this little girl gave Cindy a music box. Cindy opened the music box an found a smooth, blue stone. She took it out and said, “Oh how lovely!” Then looks at the little girl and says, “Is this a magical wishing rock?” Confused, the little girl looks at Cindy and says, “No. It’s just a rock.” Cindy was still laughing about it all the way up to her room. The characters love gifts.

Ideas include drawings, letters, fake flowers, pins, stones, small merch, candy, etc. Just remember, if it’s worth more than $10 they have to deny it 3 times before excepting the gift.

c. Bring something to show them

This is my personal favorite. I have a book of Grimm’s Fairytales with pages that I’ve painted. Each painted page corresponds with a different princess. I love showing characters my art and then having them sign it. They talk about how talented I am (which is laughable, but I digress), and love flipping through the rest of the book for the pages that aren’t theirs. I’ve seen people do similar things with THEIR art and every time, the characters get really excited. Some will even try to commission you to paint portraits for them. I’m supposed to be painting a giant mural on the side of the castle for the Tremaines in May. We’ll see.

Another great thing I’ve seen is props. My friend once brought Yorick, the skull of the jester from Hamlet, around to meet all the princesses. It was an absolute riot and she got some great pictures. I’ve seen people do similar things with stuffed animals, tsum-tsums, dolls. I’ve seen people bring Flounder to Ariel, Pascal to Rapunzel, and Olaf to Anna and Elsa. It’s fun for the characters to interact with other friends from their stories. I’ve also had the privilege of seeing a girl who brought a frying pan with her to see Rapunzel. I have never heard Punzie squeal so loud.

d. Actually start a conversation

They may be princesses and pirates, but they’re people too. Tell them a funny thing that happened to you today. Talk to them about your favorite rides in the park. Let them know you’re planning on taking over their kingdom. They’ll have fun with any story you want to tell them.

2. “Yes, and…”

This simple rule of improv helps you get the most out of your meet and greet. You take the characters story, and add to it. I once went to see Rapunzel with my St. Patrick’s Day shirt on and we talked about her plans to go down to the Snuggly Duckling and have a St. Patty’s Day celebration with the Ruffians. I suggested green leprechaun party hats, she suggested green streamers, I told her our family tradition of dying the toilet water green and telling my sister the leprechauns had forgotten to flush, and pretty soon, we had planned the whole party.

The “Yes, And..” Rule can get you some pretty crazy pictures, too. Don’t ask me how these pictures happened. I don’t even know.

3. Get a good pose

There are three ways to do this: have one in mind, ask your attendant, or ask a character. Tell your Photopass Photographer if you want more than one pose and/or how many individuals you want. This lets them know that you’re not done after the first picture. 

When thinking up your own pose, ask yourself a few questions. Is this appropriate? No lewd gestures. No gang signs. No sexually suggestive body placement. Can the character do this? Characters can’t make sorority or frat signs. They can’t pick up children (or anyone for that matter). Would the character be willing to do this? They aren’t going to lay on the ground in most cases (and Andy is not coming. Neither is Bonnie.) Some characters aren’t comfortable with kissing poses. And for Pete’s sake, Pan, Wendy, and Alice are 12. Jasmine is 15. Ariel is 16. 

I went to see Woody and Buzz in Hollywood Studios the other day and my friend and I told the boys that we worked at a magical kingdom down the road and we were used to working with princesses all day. We asked them if they wouldn’t mind posing like princesses with us. The result was hilarious. Buzz channeled Rapunzel, I had a mean Aurora, my friend made a great Snow, and Woody had Cindy down pat. 

Asking your characters or attendants for poses can be pretty fun. Minnie has posed my friend like a poodle, Daisy and I have gone full diva. Often the characters will have you copy their pose or have you take their arm. They know what looks good and they’ll let you know where to stand for the best pictures. just ask.

4. Go with the Flow

There is a rhythm and a flow to every meet-and-greet… and it’s no accident. Disney has a thing called Pass Show Flow and everyone tries to stick to it. The flow is typically a greeting, an activity or story, signing, and finishing with the picture. It’s really frustrating for attendants when a family spends a long time taking pictures and THEN the family takes out 8 autograph books. Photos are the last part of your meet-and-greet, so get the paperwork out of the way before hand.

And boom. Memories. 

I actually had a blast looking through all these pictures, finding the ones I wanted to use for this post. It brought up a lot of memories from the last few months that I wouldn’t have had without using these tips. The most fun meet and greets I‘ve had were with friends (clearly), but I’ve had my most memorable by myself (usually with Fairy Godmother, but I’m biased). I hope you enjoyed this post and found it useful in some way. or maybe you just got a kick out of my silly photos. Either way, I hope you can use these tips to make the most out of your time meeting characters at Disney.
