This was… odd for them. The gently shifting sunlight and warm, gentle breeze wasn’t out of place, Samwell was known for it’s extraordinarily beautiful campus and it was no surprise that it would be almost poetically gorgeous on an afternoon in late May, no, that was hardly the strange part. What was strange was that they were there, together, not fighting for once in their lives. It was a first date, and Derek was determined to make it as ‘chill’ as possible. No pressure, no fancy clothes or restaurants or high expectations: just them, together, together.
Omg, ok, bartender!au. I'm imagine what kind of bartender each of them are. Seokjin is the type that makes sure everyone has a ride home, and knows when to cut you off from your next shot. Every girl writes their number on the check when he serves them. Yoongi won't allow you to have a pity party. He tells you that you need to get off your ass and prove everyone wrong. He sounds harsh, but as you leave, motivated (probably through a bit of anger from his words), you don't see his proud glint in
his eyes. He actually can’t wait to see you come back, slamming your hand on the table and proving him that you’re better than everyone expected. He’s secretly hates seeing people coming in to get drunk. Hoseok is the type to listen to everything you have to say and his goal is to make you smile before you walk out that door. He’s attentive and secretly slowly dilutes your drink as you talk. He knows what to say to make you see that the world has not ended. Namjoon is the type of bartender that
will have deep talks with you even after closing and leave you drunk and maybe confused, but somehow extremely satisfying and you end up coming back for more. Taehyung is the type that makes you forget without the alcohol. He makes you laugh, makes you excited, gets you off that stool and go out and have fun. It’s not just to forget, but release your stress before you’re ready to get back out there. He makes sure that your smile is not fake and any tears welled up in your eyes are from laughing
too hard. Jimin is the type of bartender that takes good care of you. He might have indulged in your sadness as you demand for more and more before you’re so drunk, you think your ankles have turned to lead. He’s the type to watch out for you until closing and finds a way to take you home safely and securely, without others to disturb you. He’ll make sure you in the door, on your couch, with a blanket over you, and water and painkillers for the morning beside you with a note. He never thought to
take advantage of you. But you have to wonder, how the hell was he able to lock the door if he put your keys back on your coffee table? Obviously, he’s had to do this many many many times for many many many people. Jungkook is too shy to talk to you, but you’re super sad and pretty so he’s really upset that you’re upset. He watches over you. He secretly keeps guys away from you, he also slowly dilutes your drink, and he gets someone else to take over his shift when you walk out so he knows you
got home safe, or at least a friend came to take you home, or you got into a taxi. He also makes sure the bouncer will watch out for you the next time you come in. He’s not satisfied until the next time you come in is to have a good time. So tell me missy, which is your favorite type of bartender?!
OKAY FIRST OFF, HOW FUCKING DARE YOU???
SECOND, HOW DARE YOU???
THIRD, YOU DARED???
FOURTH, I LOVE ALL OF THEM ARE YOU KIDDING ME LIKE I HAD A SOFT SPOT FOR JIN, THEN I WANT TO RULE THE WORLD WITH YOONGI, THEN I WANT HOSEOK TO HOLD ME CLOSE AND JUST HUG ME BETTER, THEN I WANT NAMJOON TO TALK TO ME UNTIL I CAN’T TALK ANYMORE THEN I WANT TAEHYUNG TO MAKE ME LAUGH SO HARD I CAN’T BREATHE AND THEN JIMIN TO TAKE ME HOME AND CUDDLE ME TO SLEEP THEN I WANT JUNGKOOK TO MAKE SURE NOTHING HAPPENS TO ME LIKE
CAN I HAVE THEM ALL???
FIFTH, I’M GOING TO GET BACK AT YOU BY WRITING ALL OF THESE OUT INTO A BARTERNDER!BTS SERIES SO SCREW!!! YOU!!! (AND YOUR BEAUTIFUL MIND BUT I STILL LOVE HATE YOU!!!))
“How can you live for so long and still not get it? This self-obsession, it’s a waste of living that could be spent on surviving things, appreciating nature, nurturing kindness and friendship and dancing.“
This is Anna... (sorry I didn't text you back Anna...)
oh I'm sorry and DO YOU WANT ME TO BEAT HIM UP FOR YOU lol
I assumed you wouldn't say that
Uuugh ew I forgot about the conferences. I always hate them because they're so awkward and I'm just kind of like "Here is a test I did...Please stare at it...Because I am proud of it? And I am proud because...I...Am smart." I mean...What am I supposed to say? It has no point!
Ok so like I understand the whole culture of “12 year old me was so cringey” and all that
But what I don’t understand is bullying your past self for your past enjoyments in life? Tiny You was really truly happy indulging themselves in that thing, and drawing fan art and singing the songs even tho they didn’t have that much experience. It made them happy, made YOU happy, back then!
Why deny that happiness you had? Why not embrace the things that lead you to the things you currently enjoy so much?
Like listen; would you go out and deliberately attack a child because you think what they enjoy and create is “cringey”? … ok poor question, I know a heavy handful of you do that already.
But do you think those children will grow up happy and confident in what they love? How would that kind of harm have affected YOU?
Please at least stop negatively talking about your past work. It built you up into who you are today and you are somebody to be proud of!
Hanzo: Ok, I've come to accept that my brother is now a cyborg with an omnic boyfriend. It was rather weird at first, but Zenyatta's a kind person who has really helped Genji through a lot and- /Genji: Brother, here is my second boyfriend, Reaper. He wanted to kill us all for a while, but Zenyatta and I believe we can help him change! /Reaper: *glower* *brood* *glower* /Hanzo: ...The universe is testing me, isn't it? (Though I'm sure Hanzo'll be proud later of Genji's capacity for forgiveness)
