*slams head on keyboard* you surrendered.
hello sweets!! I was wondering if you've done apartment!au for bts??? It's a bit much so can you just do maknae line for now?? Pretty please with a 🍒 on top,?☺️ thank u~
sweet boy with a sweet smile and a sweet personality and wow did i mention the word sweet???
he’s a little clueless to his popularity in the neighborhood like sometimes he’ll find notes stuck to his apartment door from some of the highschoolers that live in the building and they’re like love confessions like “jimin,,,,,,i like you so much!! let’s walk down the flower road together xoxo ~ secret admirer from the 9th floor”
and jimin is like “my neighbors are so nice to me, look at this note namjoon” and namjoon is like “,,,,,,,,,i don’t think this is ‘nice neighbors’ i think this person has a crush on you” and jimin is like oN me??? why would they have a crush on me 0000:
everyone in a 10 mile radius: because you’re the cutest boy in the world what kind of question is that
and jimin loves bright colors,,,,i think he’d have lots of yellow in his house,,,,,,like yellow curtains in his kitchen and yellow slippers,,,,,idk why he just seems like he’d want to have a really lively aesthetic going on
and he’d be neat ,,,, and would love having people over like he’d meet someone and in a day be like “you should come over sometime ^^” like he’s just a nice open person,,,,,,,it’s so refreshing
but he’s also a little shy around those he likes romantically which is why jimin always gets stuttery around you when you see him in the mornings and you’re like “hi!!!” and he’s like “h,,,hello,,,” and you always think he must be scared of you or something because he isn’t as upbeat and as talkative with you as he is with the other neighbors
and that makes you a bit upset,,,,,so you decide that you’re gonna prove that you’re a good neighbor by baking him a cake,,,,,,,,,the only problem is: you cannot bake
and when you’re done, and you’re sure you followed the recipe correctly, you can’t help but look at the cake as it’s slowly falling apart and you’re like,,,,,,,,,,,,this isn’t going to work,,,he’s going to think i hate him or something wlrgjsa
so you go out and you buy a cake instead and you knock on his door and when jimin opens it he’s like ,,,,,very surprised to see you and you’re like
“i know we don’t talk much,,,,and that’s rude of me neighbors should get to know each other so i made this,,,,,,,as a welcoming gift???”
and jimin is like “ive,,,ive lived here for over a year” and you’re like i k NOW,,,,,,i just,,,,,,,here
and jimin takes it, his face gone completely red and he’s like thank,,,,,,thank,,,,,tha-thank you
and you’re like are you ok??? you’re redder than a lobster
and jimin is like iM FINE,,,,,,,,,,do,,,,,,do you wanna,,,,,,,,,,eat this with me,,,,,,
and you two end up sitting awkwardly at jimin’s dining table and jimin hands you a slice of cake with shakey hands and you’re like,,,,,,he seems so scared of me what do i do
and suddenly you’re like “im,,,,,,,im not mean” and jimin is like ????? and you’re like “i always think that you dislike me,,,,,but really im nice!! i think,,,,,,did i do something to scare you???” and jimin is like “nO,,,,,,nO,,,,,,it’s not that,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,”
and he looks down and tries to distract himself with eating cake but then he’s like “wait- is this,,,,,,,,,,,is this from,,,,,,the store down the block?” and you’re FRICK im caught and you’re like sorry i tried to bake one but,,,,,it came out bad so i bought one
and jimin is like you did all of this for me??? and you’re like YEAH i don’t want us to be neighbors that are cold with each other,,,,,,
and jimin kind of smiles sadly and he’s like “just neighbors,,,,right”
and you’re like wait,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,do you,,,,,,,,do you want something more
and jimin is like WHAT WHO SAID THAT UM THIS CAKE IS THE BEST MY FAVORITE FLAVOR OF CAKE YUM
and you’re looking at him,,,,,,realizing slowly that the redness in his face isn’t because he’s sick,,,,,,,,but omg park jimin has a c r u s h on you
the neighbor who you see at really odd hours of the night,,,,,like,,,,,,why is only getting home at 4 am???? is he ordering pizza at 8am???? what is his schedule
would own like 40 dogs but the building has a no pets policy and it’s killing taehyung,,,,,,,,,he literally has to go over to his friends houses who have pets to get his daily dose of cuddling puppies otherwise he’ll get depressed
the neighbors who have had a chance to speak with him all think he’s very,,,,,,,laidback and more than likely you’ll see him hanging around in the parking lot of the building skateboarding around or playing with strays that he feeds
and his own apartment is full of second-hand furniture he got from his parents and friends and he has posters up of like classic horror movies that are like peeling off the wall
and he used to play music outloud,,,but people would complain so he switched to just playing it through his headphones and pretending to like air guitar on his sofa
and speaking of which,,,,,,he actually doesn’t have a bed because he was like what’s the point i can sleep on my couch or on my beanbag or on the floor,,,,,,,,taehyung literally doesn’t care is what im trying to say
his bedroom is just bookshelves (which are falling apart) full off old toys and cds and skateboards pilled up and baseball caps
but it somehow manages not to be messy,,,,just kind of like very down-to-earth like him
and you know taehyung likes animals you’ve seen him wear shirts with dog faces like one five different occasions also he once rescued a kitten that was getting picked on by younger kids
and so when the landlord says she’ll be coming around to chat with you in your apartment about your new air conditioner you’re like “i need to hide my baby,,,,my angel,,,,,,,,my cat,,,,,,Mr. Tubs”
and you knock on taehyungs door hoping he’ll answer and to your relief he does,,,,,,,and you’re pretty sure there’s a noddle stuck to his cheek but you’re like “hey hey i know we don’t talk much but the landlord is coming up in five minutes and i need you to hide Mr. Tubs for me”
and taehyung is like whose Mr. Tubs and you like hand him the duffel bag and your cats head peeks out and you’re like “qUICK go inside ill be back in half an hour to get him”
and taehyung is standing there with your cat in a bag as he watches you run off
and he looks down and he’s like “hey Mr. Tubs” and your cat is like,,,meow who are you jokes jokes
but yes after you talk with the landlord you’re back to see taehyung and when you knock on the door you realize it’s open and when you step inside you see taehyung sitting on the floor of his living room, Mr. Tubs peacefully napping in his lap and you’re like,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,my cat likes him better than he likes me is taehyung Magical
and you’re like “heY hope Mr. Tubs wasn’t too much!!!!” and taehyung is like “your cat is awesome” and you’re like thank,,,,,you
and taehyung is like “do you think you can let him stay here,,,,,while he naps,,,,,,he’s just so nice” and you’re like ok they really did bond in this half hour
and you’re like “sure,,,,,,,,,,um,,,,,ill,,,,,go?” and taehyung’s like “no, you can stay if you want we can play like monopoly or something”
and you pull out the old board game from under a pile of what looks like notebooks and stuff and you open it and like half the pieces are missing but it’s whatever you and taehyung have a good time anyway
and he makes you laugh??? and like he’s so comfortable to be around because he’s so easy going
and you’re like ‘you skate right??’ and he’s like not well but you’re like pfft please id love to learn and taehyung’s like “yo ill teach you”
and you kind of blush a bit because he smiles so wide and he’s actually really handsome??? and before you know it two hours has gone by and Mr. Tubs wakes up only to walk from taehyungs lap and plop down into yours
and you’re like “ill take this rascal back home now,,,,so he can sleep in his bed and not on my neighbors” and taehyung laughs but he’s like bring him over again anytime and hey,,,,,,,tomorrow at 7 are you free?
and you’re like pm??? and taehyung is like no am and you’re like what who wakes up that early tomorrow is sunday and taehyung is like “well it’s a good time for me to teach you how to skate ^^”
and gdi you’re actually agreeing to get up early on a weekday because hey,,,,,,,,,,he is really cute,,,,,,,,,,
don’t even try to argue with me on this: jungkook collects actions figures and anime figures and those little nintendo figures,,,,,,,,,you know what i mean
has them like displayed on a shelf above his computer and gets really excited about packages because you guessed it: it’s a new figure
like he doesn’t have a bunch, he just gets the ones that are like of his favorite characters and also,,,,,,,,he seems like the type to own the soundtracks from his favorite games
and other than that,,,,,,like nothing matters to him
like he’s got his computer for gaming, and his bed for sleeping what else is there to life
uses his living room as a closet really like the armchair has clothes piled up on it and comic books
he eats at a low table that he forgets to clean so when jin comes over he’s like “jungkook. look at this. look at these crumbs”
jin: “what did you say?”
jungkook: “nothing i said i was gonna go get napkins to clean off the crumbs,,,,,,,”
and the neighbors all think he’s cute and some1 once asked him if he was still in high school and jungkook was like,,,,,no,,,,,,,,,i graduated and the person was like oh my i thought you were 16
and jungkook wasn’t sure if he should be flattered or,,,,,,,
but also he kind of keeps to himself so he doesn’t have a lot of close friends in his building and you and him don’t really speak but one day,,,,you end up with a strange package at your door
and at first you think it’s that rice cooker you bought but when you open it you pull out this figure and you’re like wtf is a sasuke uchiha
and then you’re like,,,,,,,,,,,wait this isn’t mine
and you see jungkooks name on the box and you’re like SHIT I OPENED MY NEIGHBORS MAIL THAT’S A CRIME
so you quickly try to put some tape on it and make it look untouched but it’s so obvious you ripped it open but you’re like maybe,,,,,,maybe he won’t be mad he seems like a nice dude
so you take the package and you ring his doorbell and jungkooks like ??? and you’re like “this is,,,,,,,,yours,,,,,,,,i accidentally opened it but,,,,,,,,,,,,,i swear i didn’t break anything!!!!! sasuke is alright!!!”
and jungkook is like “god bless sasuke is alright” and you’re like “he looks cool is he from a game?”
and wow you know when you ask people who are super passionate about something and their eyes light up WELL
and before you know it you’re standing there listening to the subplot of naruto and sasuke’s rivalry and you’re like,,,,,,what is happening but
jungkook looks so adorable listing off his favorite episodes that you’re like you know what whatever let’s talk about this
and jungkook asks you if you’re into any games/movies/shows and you’re like YEAH i have a few favorites
and you two are totally bonding in the hallway over geeky stuff but then you’re also like
“you’ve been holding that box up for like the last 45 minutes doesn’t your hand hurt??”
and jungkook is like “nah, i work out look!”
and he rolls up his sleeve innocently to show you his muscles and you’re like WOAH WHAT
and jungkook is like teehee my hyungs call me the ‘hulk’ isn’t that cute?? and you’re like ,,,,,,,,,,,ok he’s adorable but he’s also strong but he’s also funny but he’s also swole,,,,,,,,huh,,,,,,perfect dare i say,,,,,,,,,bf material
first date: binge-watching your favorite shows while getting to know each other better by playing 20 questions LOL
So we all know the college board is an actual piece of shit right? They overcharge for exams, to send CSS profiles to colleges, to send exam scores to colleges (and of course the colleges already have our scores because that’s why you keep getting mail saying omg your sat is so high pls apply), and they don’t even fucking give us a breakdown of our scores after we spend a couple hours taking their awful tests that are often designed so we fail them.
Anyways, it’s time to do something about it. AFTER we all get our AP scores this year, let’s ALL give the college board a piece of our minds. They won’t be able to do anything to us anymore - we’re done with their crap. We might not change anything, but at least we can annoy the fuck out of them.
So please reblog this and spread the word. Seniors, we’re gonna show the college board what we’re made of 👊🖕
i know that waking up in the morning can be such a chore ;; it’s always so tempting to sleep til noon and constantly press “snooze.” however, mornings are a nice and quiet bit of the day to enjoy!! here are a few tips to maximize your mornings.
there’s so much more time to be productive
if you finish up your work in the morning, you can relax in the evening
early mornings are really peaceful and calm
you can catch a glimpse of the sunrise
you feel happier and healthier
go to sleep earlier
getting adequate sleep will help you wake up early for the next day! i know, it seems like a better idea to stay up really late to finish that one last assignment. but!! i’d recommend that you sleep earlier and wake up earlier to finish it in the morning. you’ll feel less tired and stressed!
wake up earlier than you normally do
idk about you, but if i wake up after 8 or 9 am, i just feel so so sluggish and feel like i lost some precious hours of the morning. i personally like waking up around 6 to 6:30, but other people like waking up around 7.
open up your blinds / curtains
let all the natural light fill your room!! it makes your room brighter and i swear, almost everything looks prettier with natural light. also, natural light is fantastic for taking those studyspo pictures :-))))
drink a glass of water
your body hasn’t had any water for the past 8 or so hours that you’ve been asleep!! drinking a large glass of water after you wake up will fire up your metabolism, rehydrate your brain, help your body flush out toxins, and help you feel refreshed as well.
wash your face with cold water
idk about you but i literally feel half-asleep on my feet when i wake up and i just want to crawl back into my bed and never see the morning light again. washing my face with cold water really wakes me up and makes me feel super refreshed and ready to tackle the day! i also like to brush my teeth too bc morning breath is gross ;;
eating a healthy breakfast gives you energy to use for the day, improves your memory and mood, improves concentration and productivity, and is good for your overall health bc it reduces risk of type 2 diabetes + obesity (reduces chances of excessive, unhealthy snacking).
lately, i’ve been eating a small bowl of oatmeal with honey, peanut butter, and a little bit of fruit on the side. it’s so so good omg :’) i also make myself a cup of tea to give me a little “kick” in the morning.
turn on some music
idk why but turning on some nice music in the morning instantly sets a nice sort of atmosphere? i like playing studio ghibli music bc it’s calming and happy!
plan out your day
figure out what you’re going to do with all of the time that you have now! i like jotting down my tasks in my bullet journal, but you can just write up a to-do list, use an app, a planner, or your own bullet journal.
get to work!
take advantage of the time you have now to get started on your assignments + projects + studying!
I said to Sergi Roberto: ‘You used to score for the youth team, why do you never do it for the first team?’ And then, what the hell, he goes and gets that goal tonight. I am delighted for him. I have a lot of trust and affection for him.
hi can i ask how do you make time to create so many gifs? i barely have time to make one gifset in a week :(
Short answer, I’m really fast and I have a very fast computer!
Instead of giving a long answer though, I thought I’d give a few tips on how I do it, since this is a question I’m asked quite often, so what the hell, I’m gonna share my wisdom :)
The following tips are very useful and will 100% cut your time on photoshop of a significant amount… Though I want to stress on the fact that it’s having a lot of RAM on your computer that’s going to make the real difference on how fast you can be.
How to be faster when you gif:
I’m not sure how important it is to other people, but I’m very organized. When I’m making a gifset, I put the screencaps in different folders for how many gifs I’m making. That’s helpful for several reasons (it’ll be relevant a couple of points down too), but also cause I know how many more scenes I need to capture to complete my gifset, and I directly have a general idea of what the gifset is going to look like.
Related to that, I usually keep on my computer, on a pendrive and on a HDD the screencaps of some of the scene I use the most/I can possibly use in the future. They’re all in different folders, some named by character, some by fandom, some by episode, some by colour. This is very useful cause I don’t have to go and capture them again and again, wasting time. (Say, I gif Tony Stark quite a lot, I have most of his scenes already saved. It saves me A LOT of time!)
I use potplayer for capturing frames. Using that, or whatever app you have (I had kmplayer before) is way faster than using photoshop to do it.
I always capture the screencaps before I open photoshop. I usually keep the 2 phases separated. It’s mostly habit by now, cause my old pc was much slower than the one I have now, and this is especially helpful if you don’t have much RAM, cause as you know, ps runs on RAM, and will eat as much as you give to it. If you have other stuff open at the same time while using ps, it’s gonna make your pc and the whole process really really slow.
Following that, you can actually up the amount of RAM you can dedicate to photoshop! Go on Edit -> Preferences -> Performance! Remember not to overdo it though, especially if you plan on using other apps while you work on pc! I keep mine at 70% (so I have 10gb of ram dedicated to ps, now you see why I’m fast.)
Uploading screencaps as multiple DICOM files is much faster than loading files into stack! The main difference is that you can’t pick and choose which files to load, but you can only load folders (hence my putting everything into folders I said above!)
Now, the best advice that I can give you, the one that will change everything and really make everything so much faster: make actions, use actions!
Seriously! I’m the laziest person you’ll ever going to meet, so I made myself an action for literally EVERYTHING. Why? Cause a lot of the work we do on ps is repetitive and we end up doing the same things over and over for 8, 10, 20 gifs. Making frames from layers, setting the animation delay, resizing, sharpening…. It’s always the same things, but we waste so much time to input all those commands!
I made myself an action for making frames and setting the delay. I have several other actions for resizing in the dimensions I use the most (like I have an action for 268p x 140p, one for 268p x 170p and so on). I have another action for sharpening. That means that the only thing I need to do is hit play and that’s it. In a couple of seconds everything is done and I have the gif ready so I can start the fun part: colouring it.
I don’t know why but it always takes me way less when I use actions than when I have to input those commands by hand. A+++, best thing I ever started doing, would totally recommend you try it!
I don’t have much time myself, love, that’s why I keep everything organized and ready to go, so I can gif on my breaks, and I don’t have to be more frustrated than necessary (and god knows how frustrating colouring can be!)
I have the advantage of having a pc and not a mac, so I can use potplayer directly and not waste any time converting my videos in acceptable formats that quicktime can read (kudos to mac users who spend so much time on that omg how do you do it!)
*deeply inhales* OMG I love your art so much, I'm just in love with it. I'm not very new here, but I don't know why I'm waiting so long to show how much I like your art. I kinda want to draw on the computer and stuff, but I have no idea what art tools I should get? What program should I use to draw? Which tablet do I choose? Are you gonna do more Undertale art dumps? How does one draw characters like you do? Sorry if this is a lot of questions, but I'm just so ... (/◕ヮ◕)/ happy
I definitely recommend saving up for a drawing tablet, I use a Wacom tablet, the one I’m using is a bit expensive but I’m sure any of their tablets are good, they have a few different names.
As for drawing programs, I use photoshop, it’s also a bit costly but if you can spare the money it can really be a nice software to use. There’s also a free one called Gimp but I don’t use it so I don’t know how good it is.
drawing characters? I used the sprites and some of my favourite fan arts for reference so I could develop my own look for them and then proceed to draw them a million times. As you can see, style can change quite a bit.
first ever drawing of Sans and Frisk I did last February
Guess what! I got rid of my Daddy who wasn't a Daddy.
I cannot even express how much I smiled when I read this ask….
Having personally counselled this little myself about the issues she was facing, I can tell you this was a monumental step in forward progress that was extremely difficult for her to do… but I can also tell you how incredibly proud I am of her for having done it.
With that… I present to you…
Misters guide to leaving your daddy properly, and how to give yourself aftercare when you do.
Leaving an abusive, neglectful, or otherwise bad relationship can be difficult. Often times littles will end up going back.. and this is for a number of reasons.
The “daddy” was a manipulative abuser who will try to get you back. He will say and do things.. make promises.. or even turn the tables and make you feel like it was your fault for leaving. He will grind you into the ground until you agree to come back, and then begin the cycle of abuse all over again.
So you fall for it.. thinking that over 7 billion people dont exist in the rest of the world and hes the only one youll have inside of the bubble hes forced you into.
So how do you overcome this repetitive behavior?
The first step is to block him. and do not discuss it with him… just do it. He uses his words to hurt you and destroy you, and if you try to justify or tell him why and how and when youre going to leave, that just gives him another chance to ring you in even more.
Its kind of like using the 1-2-3 counting method on a disobedient child… all you are doing is giving them 3 extra seconds to be a twirp. But in this case, hes going to mentally grab you by the throat and force you to stay.
After blocking him… you may feel a burst of freedom and joy and OMG I CANT BELIEVE I DID IT. I AM SO AWESOME…
This will be followed with remorse and feelings and thoughts of wrong doing… its going to tempt you to think you did something bad, and that you need to grovel back and apologize.. and of course hes happy to continue making you a victim.
Realize your worth so much more than being a doormat or a dumpster for some weak and impotent adult childs shortcomings and inferiority complex.
Take note: I believe in you. I really do. And I want you to succeed.
so do this….
On a piece of paper write exactly these things:
“I believe in you and you are awesome. You are a strong and confident person and you can get through this. You are special and worthy of only the best, and no one can tell you otherwise. Your submission is a precious gift to only be given to those who deserve it… and no one is allowed to just take it from you.
You are beautiful and adorable, and you are a prized possession for the one that someday will earn the right to be called your daddy. So stay strong and remember that you are loved by me and so many other littles out there. You are an inspiration for your choice… and you should be proud of yourself.”
And then when you have done this… sign it “Mister”
then fold it up, and keep it with you always.
And then everytime the fear and doubt monsters come.. every time it gets hard… every time its a struggle… you open it up and read it and know that I mean it. No matter who you are, if you are reading this right now… and you have the absolute courage and strength that this little did…. you do this and keep it with you always. BECAUSE I BELIEVE IN YOU AND YOU ARE AWESOME.
I love you all…. and your progress and growth is my number one passion. Never give up… and never give in… because you are not alone.
<b>Baz:</b> I do.<p/><b>Simon:</b> You 'do' what? Are you plotting again? You are, aren't you? Omg Baz, this better not be another one of your plots-<p/><b>Baz:</b> Simon. We are at our fucking wedding. Can you not accuse me of plotting something for 5 seconds?????<p/><b>Simon:</b> Maaaaaaaaaybe ;)<p/></p>
Hiii! I'm the Anon who wrote that long message with the prompt request. Can I get 77 w/ Jungkook? Thx -Anon Gears (can I become a regular Anon??)
No Refunds (JungshOOK x Reader Fluff)
Prompt request: “Um…somebody broke that.”
Summary: The first time you meet Jungkook, he ruins a display you spent hours making. But he’s cute and adorably embarrassed, so you make the most out of the situation.
Word count: 1.3k words
You stared at the messy, unorganized space around you, wishing your shift would just end faster. The quaint art supply shop you worked in was rarely busy, let alone on a Wednesday afternoon. You took the job because you needed to fund your university career, plus you supported small businesses.
But your boss was scatterbrained and failed to inventory the store properly, leaving most of the mess to you. Plus, he always insisted on having beautiful window displays, so for the majority of your shift today, you slaved over creating a hanging paper sculpture.
A wave of origami pieces were suspended midair using fishing wire. The colours were pastel to match the spring weather outside. The whole thing was beautiful and terribly decorated, so you shouldn’t have been surprised when the display was immediately destroyed.
Two boys around your age burst into the store, barely sparing you a glance from where you stood behind the cash register, as they chattered excitedly. You observed them openly, since you had nothing better to do. The one standing nearest to you was tall and well built, but had a babyish face–dramatically round eyes and pouty lips. His friend was even taller, and had surprisingly similar facial features.
“Dude, why are we even here? Can you even do art?” the taller one asked as he followed his friend through the tiny, messy aisles.
“The fuck, Yugyeom?” the other boy replied indignantly. “Haven’t you seen me draw before? I am the Art God.”
“Ok, buddy,” Yugyeom scoffed. “If you’re gonna buy something, hurry up. I have class in like, fifteen minutes.”
The two boys rounded the store, approaching the front once again. You held your breath as they neared the window display. The artist friend browsed through a marker display, testing a few on the sample pad below.
“Bro, these Copic markers cost more than me,” the boy sighed.
“There’s a pack here on sale,” his tall friend pointed out from a few feet away.
“No way!” he replied, spinning around excitedly.
Time seemed to pass in slow motion as you watched the disaster unfold.
The boy whipped around, searching for the discounted pack of markers a few feet away from him. As he turned, he stepped back to get a better view of the aisle, completely disregarding the delicate display inches away from where he stood. His backpack got caught on several of the strings and origami sculptures. And as he turned quickly, he ripped them away, sending some of the paper sculptures flying across the store.
The pressure from the boy’s spin also caused the mount every single origami sculpture to collapse. You stared, oddly detached, as you watched your labour tumble to the ground with a loud crash.
The two boys froze, and the store was silent, save for the radio playing softly in the background.
Eventually, you stepped away from the cash register and approached the two boys, who both were staring wide-eyed at the broken display.
“Jungkook, you idiot,” Yugyeom hissed, his eyes darting in between you and the broken window display. “You fucker.”
“So, what happened here?” you asked pleasantly, trying to dispel the burning rage inside you.
“Um…somebody broke that,” Jungkook replied in a tight voice, a fiery blush blooming over his cheeks as he turned to look at you.
“I can see that,” you smiled.
“I’m so, so sorry,” Jungkook blurted out, his eyes still comically wide. “Like I’m so sorry. I’ll pay–no I don’t have any money. I’ll help you fix it!”
You raised an eyebrow at this suggestion. “It took me five and a half hours to make that.”
“You made that!? Holy shit!” Jungkook explained, his expression worsening. “Fuck, I’m so sorry! I’ll do anything. I’m not–I don’t–fuck! Just tell me what I can do.”
“It’s okay, I guess,” you shrugged. “I still have a few hours left of my shift. I’ll just try to…repair what’s left.”
“I swear I can help!” Jungkook cried–although it sounded more like a wail. “I feel so bad about this!”
Normally, you wouldn’t really consider making a customer stay back and help clean up the mess they made. But this customer–Jungkook, apparently–seemed legitimately apologetic and inappropriately guilty. Plus, you just realized he was incredibly good looking and didn’t want to turn down the company.
“Well, if you insist,” you replied. “Let me grab the origami paper. Better prepare for an incredibly boring next two hours.”
“You two have fun,” Yugyeom said, slowly backing away from the mess. “I have class. Jungkook, don’t fuck up more than you already have.”
“Amen,” you muttered, as you walked down a few aisles to locate the cheapest origami paper pack you had.
“How many times can I say I’m sorry!” Jungkook cried, watching his friend who slipped out of the store as quickly as he could. Soon, the store was quiet again, the atmosphere tense. When you returned with your hands full, Jungkook was staring at the ground, his cheeks still flushed.
You tossed him a pack of origami paper, which he fumbled to catch. His eyes darted back up.
“Look,” he began, pausing to peer at your name tag. “Y/N. I’m really, really sorry. I feel really bad about destroying your art.”
“Honestly, I don’t really have any emotional attachment to a window display I made in two minutes’ notice,” you laughed. “Just help me make a few origami sculptures, and we’ll be even.”
So, for the rest of your shift, you and Jungkook hunched over the cash, deftly folding origami paper into pretty little shapes. Surprisingly, Jungkook was quite skilled and didn’t need any instructions. While you worked, you exchanged little tidbits of information about each other.
Turns out, you both attended the same university. Jungkook was a year under you–studying business–and roomed with a few friends nearby.
He sang along quietly to the radio while you worked (“You have a beautiful voice,” you had said to him. After spluttering and blushing terribly, he replied, “Thank you. I’m minoring in music, actually.”).
When the next employee came to take over, they eyed the impromptu workstation you had set up suspiciously.
“This kid destroyed the display, so he’s helping rebuild it,” you explained. “But I’m done here, and so is he. So I’ll leave the rest to you.”
And so you shed your smock and your name tag and promptly scurried out of the store with Jungkook on your heels.
“Is it okay to leave the display like that?” he asked, concern lacing his voice.
“It’s fine. Plus that guy was late to his shift last week, and I had to stay behind for an extra hour,” you said, feeling a little petty. “Thanks for your help, Jungkook. I’ll see you around, I guess.”
“Yeah, see you,” he said, sending you an adorable smile that revealed his bunny teeth. And so you parted ways.
You were working the following Wednesday. And like every other Wednesday afternoon, the store was empty. But a few hours before your shift ended, the door chimed as a customer walked in. Your head shot up–you definitely weren’t dozing off–and your eyes widened at the sight of Jungkook waltzing into the store.
“Hi,” he said with a small smile. Jungkook walked right up the cash and leaned against the edge of the counter. The muscles of his arms bulged as he did so, and you were fairly certain that it was on purpose. “I was wondering if you could help me with something.”
“Yeah, sure,” you replied, your curiosity piquing.
“I was looking for something, and I think you have it. I want a date,” Jungkook said, blushing faintly, “with you. You and me–a date. Yeah?”
“Yeah, I think I can do that,” you smiled. “No refunds or exchanges. This is final sale.”
“I’ll take it,” Jungkook laughed, his face illuminated with a wide smile.
These days, Jungkook helped you make the window displays for fun. Turned out, he actually did have a knack for art. Your boss was seriously considering hiring Jungkook, but you dissuaded him from doing it. After all, you’d rather have Jungkook all to yourself.

Subtitled: In Which Betty Realizes She Really, Really REALLY Wants the D. Like Yesterday
Okay, Betty…..slip your fingers up his thigh a bit further…..cause I don’t care if Juggie had a 6 episode/6 month/6 year plan to “get” me, I am gonna be tapping this boy’s sweet ass and finding out if things are as rock hard everywhere as they seem to be in a 6 DAY or less plan!!!
Where’s my other, pregnant daughter you young hooligans???? BETTY!!! Why is your hand almost in “Jug” “Head’s” crotch????
DW, Mrs. Cooper….Gossip Ghey (that’s me) says they’re now “boyfriend and girlfriend” and your daughter really wants Juggie’s D
Thanks for all your “help” Kevin!!! And dammit, Mom….now my 6 day plan is at least 7 days and I’m really not sure I’m gonna last that long!
Juggie: massive erection??…WHAT massive erection? I’m totally not ridiculously aroused, like 24/7…My arm’s just here cause I like it that way….now….how do I get Betty to go to that closet under the stairs with me….and will she be disappointed?? I mean, I kinda feel like I don’t know what I’m doing and I kinda want it all to be massively incredible for her. But I’m also jacking off non-stop cause I’m soooooo turned on I can’t even….
IDGAF. Just here for the bby…..
Juggie…I see your pants getting tighter and trust me, I don’t think you’ll be “disappointing” me when I finally get you alone and tear your clothes off….Oh, BTW, I’m gonna leave my hand in your lap for now…yep….I don’t anticipate any problems….
Betty, why is your hand under the table? Is this part of that “new thing” you guys won’t let me do with you? Oh, BTW, Betty….since you apparently now love Juggie, I want you! And sorry, Juggie, we’ll still be BFFs, riiigghttt??? Even after I’m an even bigger douche to you!
Oh don’t worry, Ronnie…once I’ve broken up their very happy and almost spiritually loving connection/bond thing, I’ll be shortly bored of Betty here and dump her ass….and then you’ll get ANOTHER 7 minutes in heaven with Archiekins!!! But ya know, there’s only so much of me to go around, amirite, ladies???
Why am I interested in this ginger jackass again? And how am I not cold?
Betty, now neither of them can sit with us. And yes, that’s MY hand in YOUR lap, returning the favor…<3333333….do you like closets under stairs? Or do you think your parents might go away any time soon????
Remember when we used to be friends, Alice?
Before we started fighting over that wrinkly contractor who looks like a monkey and is dumber than one, I became a trophy wife and stole your daughter? Maybe we can fix that….
OMG!!! My bby!!! Let’s make up and have the awesomest day EVER!!! No drama, riiiigghttt???
Surprise, bitches!!! Per usual, my attire is more suited to a cocktail party and I’ve brought my twin’s spawn a baby hearse carriage, in a style out of use for over 40 years!!!
Uhhhh…..Hi Mrs. Blossom….I see you share your daughter’s inappropriate fashion sense. I’d think a fancee rich society lady would know red with black accents isn’t really “done” at baby showers…
She’s right, mother. And if I wasn’t judging someone else, I’d totally be judging you, rn—-look at how much wine our hostess needs already
Oh, Polly, dear….glad to see you have the ring!!! Shall I tell you how I actually murdered Jason because A) he’s Fred’s kid, not my son’s and B) even still, no fucking way was any Blossom EVER gonna marry any Cooper….but I’m not a baby killer, so you were off the table? And too difficult to get to, anyway? Yes…..Sheriff Roscoe helped me….cause I’m the REAL Boss Hogg around here!
Ohhh….mannnnn…..I wasn’t sure about being the only dude at this super girly shit…but this is aaammaaazzinnggg….cupcakes and other snacks, cat fights to entertain, that creepy old bag outing herself as Jason’s murderer….making out with my wife in front of everyone…..soooooo happpeeeee…..
Well, here I am to show my ass and ruin the day for ya, Jughead!!!
Archie, can you NOT???? Every time my hair is down and I look super pretty, you have to go and wreck it all. We all know I love Juggie and this will only serve to bring us closer, so can you please stop interrupting us when we’re “doing stuff that people who have gone through what we have do”????
YUCKYUCKYUCK WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO REMUS?? OMG HE LOOKS EVEN WORSE THAN PETER OMG STOP STPPPP PLEASE DONT DO IT AGAIN PLEASDEEEE MAKE US A FAVORRRRRRRRR !!!!@@!!!
(( OOC: Thank you for the feedback! Constructive criticism is always welcome on this blog. You clearly have a lot of passion for the hp rp community. Hey, why don’t you start rp-ing yourself? Then you could play Remus how you like, instead of expecting me to fulfil your ideal head canon for you? I think you’d do a great job.
Oh, and if you ever need any roleplaying tips, just ask. I’m an old hand at this now :) ))
> please stop crying.
> Omg I’m so nervous.

> ugh, I can’t see what I’m doing now!
