On Tuesday, Isabell Meggett Lucas, 87, visited the home where she was born in Edisto Island, South Carolina. Except she had to go visit it in Washington, D.C. That’s because Lucas’s childhood home was a slave cabin on display at the African-American History Museum.
According to local television station WRC, the Edisto Island slave cabin is the only one remaining of 10 such cabins that were built on a patch of land owned by Charles Bailey, who became wealthy through slavery.
Lucas told WRC that, though she was born there, she did not know it was a slave cabin when she was growing up. Read more. (4/13/2017 11:30 AM)
Summary: You’re a cold hearted, remorseless hunter who’s after a witch. When you unintentionally save Dean Winchester’s life, you shoot him. He finds out you’re staying at the same motel as him and Sam later that evening, and then you guys do..things.
wtf kind of summary is that
Request: hey! so i just saw the requests are open.. ive been thinking about some dean x reader smut/fluff stuff inspired by bad woman by motörhead, it just fits perfectly! if you find it inspiring aswell, id love to read a fic about it! youre amazing :) love!
Pairing: Dean x Reader
Warnings: SMUT, Oral (female and male receiving), over stimulation, vaginal fingering, anal fingering, language…I think that’s it?
“Sam?!” Dean whispered as he stalked around the old cabin. Sam and Dean had been separated outside by something, and Sam was out in the woods somewhere.
The cabin was dark, dank, and no one good had stayed there in years. This witch was supposedly here, but it was quiet, very quiet, and the witch was still nowhere to be found.
That was until Dean tripped a wire, and the witch burst through the doors, absolutely pissed that her home - if you could call it that - was being invaded. By a hunter nonetheless. The witch held out her arms, flinging Dean across the room. He hit the fireplace before hitting the floor.
“Bitch.” He groaned as he rolled around, trying to stand up. He held up his gun to shoot, but it wasn’t his gun that went off. He jumped at the sound of another gun shooting and the sight of the witch falling to the floor.
“Sam?” he stepped forward and looked around, thinking it must have been his brother that shot the witch. But as he rounded the corner, he was surprised to see you standing there.
“Hey, uh, thanks.” Dean said as he rubbed the back of his neck, taking you in. You were gorgeous. Long flowy y/h/c hair, striking y/e/c eyes, paired with skinny jeans, knee high boots, and a leather jacket zipped up just enough to give Dean a nice look at your cleavage.
“Don’t thank me,” you spat out, “I wasn’t trying to save you. That witch bitch just needed killing.”
Dean was taken aback at how cold your words were. He thought you must’ve been one of those mean, loner hunters him and Sam came across sometimes. But there was something different about you.
He looked you up and down, his eyes trailing across every curve on your body.
“Ugh, fuck you.” you spat out before you raised your gun and shot him, the bullet just grazing his arm and knocking him on his ass. You didn’t take well to being gawked at.
Your head throbbed as you began to wake from your slumber. Opening your eyes to the dark room you sat up and the room began to spin. While one hand propped you up, the other clutched your forehead wanting relief from from the discomfort. But as you looked down at the sheets it made you realize you weren’t in your room.
Your senses were on edge as you took in your surroundings. First you listened for any sign of movement outside the door. Was there someone else in this house with you? Or were you alone? Then you sniffed the air. The best way to describe the smell was musty. This didn’t surprise you at all. Wherever you were, it was old. You could tell even in the darkened room that the walls were worn out wooden panels.
Reggie Mantle x Reader:
PART SIX THE ARTIST & THE JOCK
is the last part of this imagine. I am pretty happy on how it turned out,
hopefully you guys like it too. I hope it lives up to your expectations. I also
didn’t want to drag this longer than it needed.
Shizz goes down, but you and Reggie make up.
You woke up early on Monday morning because you didn’t want to
face your parents since they gave you the weekend to think about the contract,
but you knew if you turned it down once again they’ll only find a way for you
to accept it. As much you as you wanted to be with Reggie this was not the way
to do it. He also seemed pretty busy the couple of days, he seemed happy with
Veronica and she was your friend and you couldn’t do this.
As you rushed out of your house wind in your hair, headphones
placed in your ears as the music distracted you in the humid morning. You
focused your eyes on the ground where the dew droplets resided in the grass. As
much as you were avoiding him, you needed to speak with Reggie about this whole
You walked in the coffee shop and ordered your usual and kept
your slow pace in no rush to get to school.
As you were there early you decided to go straight to the art
room and paint or draw something to calm your nerves.
You thought about how on Saturday afternoon Reggie ignored
your comment about him only telling you how he felt to please his parents and
get you to accept that stupid contract. About how Veronica was so happy with
him, probably thinking you set them up; but all you wanted was for them to
separate. You hated how you thought this. You couldn’t let your smile come up
when you thought about Reggie being a bit jealous of Jughead, but that smile
faded quickly as you were interrupted by you art teacher telling you the bell
rang and it was time to get ready for your first class.
You made your way swiftly to your locker to collect your
textbook, and he was there leaning on it and as much as you wanted to clear
things up, you couldn’t face him. You stared right at him and your stomach went
crazy, it was an attack of butterflies.
You walked up to your locker and nothing came out of your
lips, it’s like you were in a trance.
Until your trance was broken by his mouth as he spoke “Hey, um
can we talk?” as he moved so you could open your locker and take out your
“Not right now Reg” you claimed.
“Then when, you can’t ignore me forever (Y/N)” he reasoned
with a desperate look in his brown eyes.
“I know that, but, not here” you signed soon distracted by the
bell and you rushed out of there to your first class.
The day went by and lunch was finally here and you made your
way to your usual table with Jughead, Betty, Archie, Kevin and Veronica.
All you wanted was your old life back where Reggie was just a
friend, where your parents did as much work to ignore you and you were the
neutral ground. But that you was gone after this whether you made a decision or
not, you were no longer the girl who did everything to please everyone. All you
wanted was to suppress your feelings for Reggie, you wanted your old Riverdale
back when it was just a happy town. You
were also tired of doing everything for everyone.
You took your seat next to Jughead, hoping your friends would
distract you from your thoughts.
That was until everything caught up with you and you wished it
never happened, and that you didn’t have to hide it from your friends.
“Hey Reggie” the beautiful raven haired girl cheered while
showing off her pearls as he appeared at your table.
“Hey Ron, umm, can we talk?” Reggie directed towards you and
you stood up because you might as well get this over with.
“OH MY GOD! (Y/N)” the red haired bombshell squealed as you
turned confused as to why she was so cheery and she took you and Reggie into a
hug and all your friends gave her puzzled looks.
“Why didn’t you tell me?!” Cheryl continued.
“What are you talking about?” you questioned looking over your
shoulders to Reggie and your friends.
“Oh, come on you tell them, but not me? How dare you?!” she
kept on questioning and your brain was so slow it didn’t catch on to what she
was referring to.
“What? What didn’t she tell you?” Kevin added.
“Seriously they’re all in on it, well whatever, I know now and
I’m so happy for you” she raged.
“About what? What did I do?” you were still oblivious to what
she was asking and you wished you hadn’t pushed the answer once she revealed it.
“You and Reggie of course, my parents told me all about it,
well I overheard your moms telling my mom this morning. You guys make a cute
couple. I’m so happy for you!” you stood there frozen, you wanted to run but
your feet stood still and the next sequence of events happened to fast.
“What?!?!” Veronica screeched and the whole table gasped.
“No Ron, I- I- it’s not-” was that came out of your mouth as
she stood up and planted a slap on your cheeks and Reggie pushed her away.
“Come on” Reggie spoke softly as tears started to surface on
your face and he grabbed your hand to walk away.
“No!” you retorted as you let go and Jughead stood up to get
you out of there.
“Let’s go” Jughead spoke as he started to take you away and
put his arm around you.
“Norman Bates, mind your own business this is between us”
Reggie claimed as he removed Jughead’s arm off you and pushed him.
Jughead hated the way
Reggie was sometimes so he pushed him back and they started to fight as you and
Archie went up to them to separate them.
“I need time” you spoke to Reggie and walked away with
You left school early trying to get away from all of the mess,
and you were so happy that your parents weren’t home.
they do this? Did Reggie know again and is that why he wanted to talk to you?
“This is all my fault” you proclaimed as you got a snack for
Jughead since lunch was kind of eventful.
“Hey, it’s not your fault (Y/N)” Jughead reassured you.
“No, it is. I do everything for my parents to make them happy,
so they could be proud of me, but no matter how I do it will never be enough. I
want everyone happy that I don’t even think about my own happiness. This was so
easy, no matter what I chose my parents knew if they did something about it I
would accept it, I am such a pushover.” You ranted
“What do mean whatever you chose? Your parents want you with
Reggie? Isn’t that a good thing you like him.” Jughead asked as he furrowed his
eyebrow and you knew there was no way out of this one, so you told him the
“Just talk to him, I know I’m not his biggest fan, but I’ll
deal for you. Also you are going to need to talk to Veronica, I’m sure she’ll
understand” Jughead pointed out as he left you.
You texted and called Veronica so you could talk to her and
explain the situation, but she didn’t answer.
You were soon distracted by the knock on your window which
revealed the tall handsome Reggie as you opened your window.
“That used to be easier” he chuckled trying to break the
tension entering your bedroom.
“I like what you’ve done with the pla-” he stated as you
interrupted him. Your body took over as you placed one of your hands behind his
neck and pressed your lips on his and he moved his hands to your waist.
The kiss was passionate and slow and you didn’t want it to
“I’m sorry about this whole mess, I didn’t think it would get
this bad” he confessed as you both moved to your bed and sat there.
“Do you actually like me? Or did you just tell me all that
stuff because of the contract?” you mentioned.
“If I didn’t like you, I wouldn’t have kissed you like that. I
promise my feelings for you are 100% real” he added as he put his arm around
your waist and you laid your head on his shoulder
“What about Veronica?” you questioned him.
“Nothing happened, I promise you. Not one kiss. I like you,
yes I was stupid to call her after the dinner I just wanted to forget about
being rejected from the only girl I ever cared about” he chimed in as he kissed
“I didn’t reject you, I was just confused. You’re the one that
left me, your chose your popularity after you promised you would be there for
me and I promised you the same. I kept my promise, whenever you called I was
there.” You confirmed as he grabbed your hand.
“No words will ever be enough to show you how sorry I am. You
started hanging out with Archie and them, especially Wednesday Addams I- I just
assumed you preferred him, and I don’t make the best decisions” Reggie sighed.
“It’s Jughead, and he is just my best friend, if you want
anything to do with me you’re going to have to deal with Jughead” You countered
as he smiled.
“So you’re saying we can like be a thing? For real, like
you’re going to be my girlfriend? I’m going to be your boyfriend?” he said with
a smile on his face and you smiled back.
“Yours, no contract, and we have to talk to Veronica and our
parents” you explained as you pecked his lips once more.
“For you, anything babe” he concluded as he kissed your hand.
talked to Veronica, not expecting her to be so understanding, but once you told
her the truth she embraced you in a tight hug and apologized for slapping you.
talked to your parents at yet another dinner, and they were quite happy of
course. Although to get under their skin you and Reggie somehow always forgot
when their events and banquets took place and sometimes you would take drives
to the old cabin and revisit the tree where your initials were carved inside a
heart and just be together.
You can't leave Vietnam AU like that, we need to know the resst ;)

lectern of St. Bride Church. “Let us rejoice and be glad.”
sat up a bit straighter at the end of the front pew, twining his fingers
through Claire’s, exchanging a small smile with his godfather.
as long as anyone could remember, every Sunday morning the Fraser-Murray clan
had attended eight o’clock Mass at the church their forefathers had built at
the turn of the nineteenth century. Just a ten minute drive from the Big House,
it had originally served just the family and tenants of the Fraser estate.
Jamie, Jenny, and Murtagh were the only Frasers remaining in the area – most of
the extended family had moved to Asheville or Raleigh after World War II – but those
three stubborn Frasers had held strong.
and Jenny’s parents had been married at St. Bride’s. The three Fraser children –
including the eldest child, Willie, who had died of smallpox when Jamie was
small – had been baptized there. Murtagh – who lived in his own cottage on the
estate with his wife Suzette, who he had brought home from France after landing
on the beaches of Normandy – ran the lector program. Jenny and Ian had been
married there, and Young Jamie and Maggie in turn had been baptized there.
as Claire rose with Jamie, watching Father Kenneth kiss the Word of God, smile
out at the congregation, and begin reading from the Gospel of Luke – she saw
herself and Jamie standing before the priest at the altar. And standing off to
the side below the gorgeous stained glass window of Michael the Archangel, just
behind the baptismal font, gently holding a fussy newborn while reciting the
baptismal promises. And exchanging proud smiles with Jamie as a beautiful
red-haired girl received her First Communion. And holding Jamie’s trembling
hand as they watched a handsome red-haired boy be confirmed.

on it, and maybe bring back a bottle or two for dinner?”
chewed thoughtfully on his pancakes. “I haven’t been up there since the fall –
would be good to make sure it’s gone through the winter without any major
damage. Take note of what would need a repair, all right?”
nodded her thanks as Suzette poured another cup of steaming coffee. “What’s the
the house that was built before this one – on the highest part of the Ridge.”
Jenny wiped maple syrup off Young Jamie’s face with the corner of her
blue-and-white striped napkin. “It’s just a few rooms – we haven’t updated it
much over the years, except added a generator for electricity.”
stay there overnight sometimes when there’s a lot to do in the whisky caves,”
Jamie added, serving Claire another slice of Mrs. Crook’s excellent bacon
before nibbling on one himself. “It’s where we let the bottles age. We only
take them out once a year, to sell them to the restaurants and bars in town –
but I want to find a good one for us to enjoy tonight.”
you’ve got Jamie smiling again, Claire,” Ian said quietly from across the
table. “And Lord knows, Jenny and Murtagh and Suzette and I have been trying to
do that since he got back from ‘Nam.”

gentle hand on her knee, squeezing softly.

had been about two hours since they’d left the house – Jamie toting a backpack
full of snacks from Mrs. Crook, Claire wearing Jenny’s pre-pregnancy jeans and
hiking boots. They hadn’t spoken very much on their journey – both lost in
their thoughts, both afraid to pierce the quiet with the sound of their voices.

flashed a brilliant smile. “My father started taking Jenny and Willie and I
hiking in these woods as soon as I could walk. He’d take me up to the caves and
let me play with the spare pieces of wood while he and Murtagh and my grandfather
Simon sorted the bottles. Believe it or not, there are plenty of landmarks
along the way – trees and rocks that you’ll recognize in time.”

immediately clear why the first Frasers had chosen to build there – for the ground
in front of the cabin gently sloped into a grassy clearing.

A private place where you can be alone with your thoughts.”

his hair like fire.
you’re OK taking me here? To your private place?”
sighed and settled his hands on her hips, turning her to face him. Licked his
lips, and burned his eyes into hers.

Anonymous said: Hi! I’m so in love with your writing omg! I was wondering if you could do jugheadxreader where they are dating and the reader is really into investigating Jason’s death and she finds out who the killer is but right as she’s calling to tell jug the killer hurts her to shut her up and jughead saves her and sits by her side in the hospital and angst and fluff. sorry it’s long, if it’s too much you don’t have to do it! Thanks again, LOVE YOUR WRITING
A/N: I loved the prompt idea! Thanks for the kind words and the idea anon!
You were close. You knew you were. You were just pacing back and forth in your room connecting the dots. You knew this meant something. Then it clicked. “He lied to Betty in the diner”, the words escaped your mouth. “That’s why it didn’t make sense”. You grabbed your phone to send a message.
Y/N - Hey, I think I know who it is.
J - Who “who” is?
Y/N - The Killer Juggie. Meet me at Pops.
J -Y/N, I told you not to do this without me.
Y/N - It’s fine, just meet me at the diner in 15.
It was a cold brisk night into the first week of December. At this point everyone had been a suspect. Even Jughead by Sheriff Keller.
You knew you were missing something until you overheard them outside the locker room. It all made sense now.
Your head was still racing as you were just trying to make it to Pop’s.
You were so engrossed in your thoughts you hadn’t paid attention to your surroundings.
J - Hey, are you coming?
Y/N - Yeah, I’ll be there soon sweetheart.
J - I hate it when you do that.
Y/N - Do what?
J - Call me sweetheart.
Y/N - Ah but that’s what you are Forsythe.
J - I love you but please don’t use that name.
Y/N - Love you back. Be there in a minute.
You could see the glowing sign of Pop’s in your view. Suddenly you heard footsteps stopping in their tracks.
It was fine - you thought to yourself. You heard a shuffle of noise again, you looked behind you but didn’t see anyone. You turned back around and *wham*.
I was pacing back and forth outside the booth. Where was she? She said she was close 10 minutes ago….that’s it. I’m going to look for her.
I started to walk the route to her house until I saw it. Her phone on the ground, screen partially cracked. I saw a couple drops of fresh blood on the pavement. I didn’t see anyone or a car anywhere near.
“Kev? Hey. Tell your Dad he needs to get to Y/N’s house now”.
I raced towards her house hoping that she left a clue to what she found in her room on her own “murder wall”.
You started to get your sight back slowly. Your head throbbed in pain. You tried to touch the pulsating wound when you realized your hands were tied.
“I knew you followed me to the locker room. You figured it all out huh?”, the voice was familiar.
“Yeah I figured out that Jason wasn’t selling those drugs alone. And when you found out he was taking all the money with him as well, you killed him”, you didn’t have to make a guess anymore, you knew who it was in front of you.
“All from just giving Reggie that bag huh?”, Trev finally came into view closer to your body that seemed to be in some sort of chair.
“Yeah well you slipped up”, you were just trying to keep him talking at this point.
“When?”, his walk became slower as he also seemed a bit nervous in his words.
“Your “date” with Betty. You said you weren’t friends with Jason anymore after he started dealing. That you stayed away from him when he was doing that”, you winced in the small pain of your head while struggling with the ties around your hands.
“Ah. And when Reggie said he knew Jason had a friend to help but wasn’t sure who…”
“Yeah it all clicked. It’s why you left the football team too. You didn’t do it because of the playbook, you just didn’t want someone to ask you more questions. I have one though”. Again, just keep him talking - was all you thought.
“If Jason didn’t tell you his plan for Polly and him, how’d you know where to find him?” Your curiosity was in the back of your mind while you also hoped Jughead was looking for you.
“Something no one’s seemed to figure out yet. You know that old crazy kook Blossom? They never looked into her properties. She had an old cabin in the woods outside of Sweetwater. When I figured out that Cheryl was lying about Jason’s dissapaerence, I went looking for him. It’s where we originally had our stash”. You could see Trev reaching for something in back of him.
You were still struggling with the rope around your wrists but they were getting looser.
“What about the car?”, just keep him talking.
“Everyone assumed I was at the show watching my sister. It was a good cover especially since I knew what song they were going to play. But I followed Jones, Betty and you. Waited for you to leave and then had some help with the car”. He grabbed his gun out.
You were trying not to panic just yet, “FP and the Serpents?”
“Yeah I knew those bums would be on the Sheriff’s list and they needed to pay me back for pushing their product better than them. It was all perfect until today”. He opened the barrel making sure he had bullets inside.
“If you kill me, they’ll all figure it out. They’ll know I was close to something”, you were trying to convince him to do something other than what his nerves were telling him. You could tell he was contemplating his next move as he was pacing with his gun in hand.
“No. No they won’t. You didn’t get to tell anyone. I know you didn’t even tell your boyfriend. I looked at your phone before I dropped it there”, his pace was becoming heavier.
Good though. That meant Juggie had the phone, he just needed to figure it out.
“You really shouldn’t…”
“Don’t tell me what to do!”
Your head still throbbed, but once again you were regaining your sight. You could hear a slight beep happening every other second or so. You looked at your arm and despite the rope burn on your wrists you had a small tube sticking out of it.
“Mom? Juggie?”, your eyes looked to see your mom sleeping in a chair passed out while Jughead’s ears perked up to your voice.
He was sitting right next to you holding your hand.
“Y/N!”, Jughead came to your head to kiss the top of it.
Your mom woke up to your name, “honey!” She grasped your other hand for a second. “I’m going to get the doctor, okay?” She gave a nod to Juggie and left to the door.
You tried sitting up a little as you felt a slight bandage on the side of your head. “What happened?”
“Well for starters, you scared the hell out of me”, Jughead’s voice wasn’t angry but rather just happy to see you were there. “Y/N, never do something like that without me!”
“Hey now, I didn’t know he followed me. Now what happened with Trev?”, your eye still twitched a little from the pain in your head.
“You almost got killed Y/N! He was about to shoot you when Keller found you. You were bleeding so much I thought he had already…” his words went silent.
“Hey hey, I’m okay Juggie really. I knew I just had to keep him talking as long as I could”, you grabbed Jughead’s other hand now.
“How’d you know?”, his hands were rubbing yours.
“He said he left my phone there. I knew you’d look at it and see that I recorded him, that it was one of my tabs”, your eyes watered a little bit as you saw that Jughead’s eyes were beating red.
“You’re lucky I’m smart”, he kissed you lightly on your lips.
“So what happened with Trev?”, your curiosity got the better of you.
“He’s in jail. They’re booking him on kidnapping and endangering you as well as Jason’s murder that he fessed up to. Kev’s dad shot him in the shoulder when he saw he was about to…” his words trailed again.
“I’m okay Juggie really. Alright sweetheart?”, your hands went to his face and you made sure his eyes looked to yours.
“I thought I almost lost you. I thought you weren’t ever going to even say “sweetheart” again. I love you Y/N”, his face was close to yours, as he was holding back tears.
“Hey, you’ve got me now and I’m not going anywhere. I love you too.” you dived in for a kiss. It was long and full of so much meaning, the soft subtle lips of Jughead’s trying to linger on your lips longer until he let them part.
“Okay but two things”, he gave a smile while now grasping on your chin. “Never ever scare me like that again”, he gave you a small peck, “and keep calling me Sweetheart”.
You smiled, and dived in for one more kiss. “I can do that”.

Of all the places you’d traveled, Cape Caem was probably one of your favourites. It was calm and peaceful. And after the Empire attack on Insomnia and the death of Jared, that was definitely something that you needed.
You were wandering around the lighthouse, taking in the view along the horizon. From your perch, you spotted a patch of wild flowers growing down closer to the road. You wandered over, looking at them with awe.
There were so many colours–pinks, purples, yellows. They were so beautiful, you figured you’d pick a few and find a makeshift vase to brighten up the house. Once you’d picked a sizeable bouquet, you made your way back to the old cabin to keep them fresh.
As you were searching the kitchen for a vase or a pot, you heard a throat clearing behind you. You turned to see Gladio standing by the threshold, arms crossed, an amused smirk on his face.
“What are you doing?”
“What’s it look like?” you replied cheekily. “If I don’t find something for the flowers, they’ll wilt.”
He nodded and meandered over. “What kind of flowers are those?”
You shrugged. “A few pansies, some lilies, and look–” you grinned. “Even a gladiolus.”
He rolled his eyes as you winked at him. And then you got a great idea.
“Can I put it in your hair?”
He did a small double take. “What?”
You pouted, giving your best puppy-dog-eyes impression. “Please, babe? Don’t you love me?”
He rolled his eyes even harder this time and lowered his head so that it was easier for you to reach. You clapped excitedly and took the flower, gently placing the stem behind his ear so it sat right at his temple.
“You look beautiful,” you gave him a genuine smile, cradling his face in your hands. He surged forward and kissed you, and you felt his lips curve upwards against yours. He pulled away, leaving you breathless.
“I love you, you dork. You know that?”
You blushed, feeling the heat creep up your neck. “I love you too, big guy.” Your eyes briefly wandered around to the other rooms of the house. “I wonder where Prompto is. I wonder if I can steal his camera. This can’t go undocumented.”
Gladio playfully groaned, but then suddenly you were swept off your feet and hauled over his shoulder. You shrieked, and he swatted your ass as he easily carried you upstairs.
“You can find him later,” he said dismissively. “You’ve had your fun, and now it’s my turn.”
You giggled. “Fine. But you have to keep the flower in your hair.”
She thought about the old rule of Aphrodite’s cabin: that to be recognized as a daughter of the love goddess, you had to break someone’s heart. Piper had long ago decided to change that rule…You should have to make someone’s heart whole; that was a much better test.”
