“The late King Taejo’s last words were that life is fleeting. It is all short and in vain. He said that life is so short. But I think that he was wrong. You and I are together like this, so how it could be in vain?”
“If we had met in another world and another time I was thinking how great that would have been. If only that could be… I wouldn’t fear anything. I could freely… Truly, I could freely love you all I wanted.”
Hi!! Do you think can do some aus/prompts about best friends to couples? Like how they start dating/ how they tell their other friends/ and possibly fights/ etc. thank you!! <3
Best friends to lovers prompts, coming right up!
1. “You found the poem I wrote about you, and now you know how I feel about you. Please don’t hate me.”
2. “You kept insisting that I tell you who I was interested in, so I finally caved, and admitted that I’ve loved you for years.”
3. “Our friends just told us that they thought we were dating this whole time, and suddenly, that doesn’t sound so bad to me.”
4. “I’ve been successfully hiding my feelings for you for years, but then, you kissed me as a joke, and I couldn’t hide it anymore.”
5. “I call you at 3 AM to talk about random stuff when I can’t sleep, and somewhere between ‘Do pandas like rock music’ and ‘Why can’t fish dance,” I ended up admitting that I love you.”
6. “You keep trying to set me up with people, because you want me to be happy, and I end up blurting that the only person I want to be happy with is you.”
7. “When we were in third grade, you gave me a ring pop, and told me we were married. Today, you found out that I still have it.”
Telling Their Friends-
1. “We were just going to wait and see who noticed first, but it’s been a month, and NO ONE realizes that anything is different?”
2. “We didn’t really have to tell anyone, because one of our friends caught us kissing and posted it on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter.”
3. “We sat everyone down for a serious discussion, but when we told them, they were all confused. ‘Haven’t you guys been dating for, like, three years now?’”
4. “We changed our relationship statuses to ‘In a relationship’ with each other, and everyone is commenting ‘Lol’, ‘Good one,’ and ‘Yeah, right’ on them, so we posted a picture of us kissing. No one is laughing now.”
1. “Your ex is back in town, and I know it shouldn’t bother me, but I remember you talking to me for hours about how amazing they were, while my heart shattered each time. No, I’m not thrilled about you having dinner with them, even if it is just for business.”
2. “I don’t want everyone to know yet, and you want to shout it to the world that we’re together.”
3. “My parents were never even a fan of our friendship. Now that we’re dating, it’s ten times worse.”
1. “We still refer to each other as “best friends,” and everyone is confused by that, but dating doesn’t mean we aren’t still friends.”
2. “Literally no one is surprised that we’re dating.”
3. “Your sibling’s kids have been calling me aunt/uncle since before we were dating, and they don’t really see what all the fuss is about.”
How Percy had managed to find himself hiding in one of the most highly guarded museums in the dead of night was beyond him. Aside from the looming possibility that they were ultimately going to fail, he had a surprising amount confidence that things might actually turn out fine.
“You can have Manhattan, the one we used to share…The one where we were laughing, drunk on just being there…” Annabeth gets a job offer in Athens, but Percy wants her to stay with him, in Manhattan. But, sadly, people don’t always get what they want.
Three months before his sixteenth birthday, Percy Jackson reads the prophecy that foretells his death. Scared and with nowhere to go, he drags best friend Grover on a road trip across the states looking for solace. As they get lost in America, Percy discovers himself again in friendship, a quietly building love (for the world and a girl), and a journey he’ll never forget.
He rubbed slow circles on her back and murmured sweet nothings into her hair. “I’m sorry,” he kept saying, over and over. “I’m so sorry.” “Why are you apologizing to me?” she croaked. “You’re the one who’s -” “Dying,” he finished for her. “I’m dying, and that’s why I’m sorry.”
At seventeen, Percy never assumed that his life would be consumed of anything other than swimming and late night study sessions locked in his room. However, his entire view changes once the world seems to turn against the human race and disease, famine, and chaos engulf the country. But Percy’s not one to give up so easily, and apparently neither is the blonde girl he teams up with. So when the opportunity survive announces itself to Percy and Annabeth, they don’t hesitate to take it.
Piper McLean is the princess, and soon to be ruler, of the country Lehpid. But when King Jupiter from the country Snathe calls war on her father over an eleven year long rivalry, Piper takes it upon herself to solve it.
Okay so this is the coolest royalty au ever and you should all go take the time to thank ijeoma for writing this beautiful story
From: Jason (9:33) Haven’t heard from you in a while. Is everything ok?
To: Jason (9:36) Demeter is here and I have to pretend to be straight, the power has gone out, and Hazel has just suggested we play Disney Monopoly, which we have for some reason. So what do you think?
Will goes to meet Nico’s father, and it doesn’t exactly turn out the way they had planned.
Will hated winter. Okay, 'hated’ might be over exaggerating it a bit; maybe ‘was mildly inconvenienced by’ would be better suited. Will was mildly inconvenienced by winter, and it was starting to annoy him.
He bit down harder on his lip, trying not to think about how rosy Leo’s cheeks were, or how his hair glowed like a halo in the light of the lamp, and how just the sight of Leo lying on his bed was enough to make him shiver.
Jason was wrecked, honestly. Apparently, he’s not as straight as he thought he was.
It’s Christmas day, and Leo is spending it exactly opposite of where he pictured himself to be - serving food to grumps in an old folk’s home. This year, things seem pretty bleak, but he still finds joy in a few things - namely his friend Piper and his not-so-subtle crush and coworker, Jason Grace. Oh, and the fact that Drew Tanaka had to kiss an old guy under some mistletoe.
I have a lot of favorite fictional romances and ships (both canon and non-canon), but we’d be here all day if I tried talking about them all. So I decided to instead look at the combinations of types that showed up most frequently in my list of OTPs/Romances, and check out the results:
Here’s the top 5:
1. INTP & ENFP
Maybe it’s because I’m an INTP and always get along swimmingly with the ENFPs I know. Whatever the reason, I like this particular pairing a lot. I have a large number of ships and canon romances with this pairing I just adore. Probably the best known of this combination is Romeo and Juliet themselves (ENFP boy, INTP girl), but among my other OTPs of this type are Andy and April on Parks and Recreation (I nicknamed them ‘Ludwyer’; don’t know why this portmanteau hasn’t caught on) and Spider-Man/Mary Jane Watson (Comics version, movie and animated versions are other types).
Another sort of “opposites attract” pairing. I don’t know anyone of this combo IRL, but fictional pairs of this sort are just wonderful to me. Superman and Lois Lane (Smallville versions are definitely this pairing, others may vary) are probably the best known pairing of these types, archetypal in many ways. And then there’s the OTP I used for the picture, Korra & Asami Sato from The Legend of Korra, who are kind of archetypal for this sort of relationship: Start off assuming things about the other, and discover the hidden depths in each other as time goes on.
On going through my various OTPs, I sorted by functions as well as types, and out of all of them, the combo of Fe/Ti/Ni/Se (in any one of its four types) and Te/Fi/Ni/Se (also, any one) is the combination of functions I ship the most. Anyway, INFJ & ENTJ: A pairing that spins beautiful dreams from the fabric of imagination into a startling reality. Partners in crime. The types of my ultimate OTP, Daphne Moon & Niles Crane from Frasier (pictured above). Talk about true NJs (the cautious and patient kind, anyway); it takes them seven years to even get around to admitting they like each other! But boy are they charming, every single time.
I like shipping various combinations of the four Artisan types (SP). They all use Se strongly, which can often=wild decisions and impulsive actions. I’m kind of including all of the various SP character pairings I love in the back of my mind here (The Princess Bride’s ISTP/ISFP, Harry and Ginny ESTP/ISFP) but ISTP/ESFP was the one with the highest number. The pairing pictured above is from the James Bond movie On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, featuring my favorite Bond Girl Tracy diVicenzo (ESFP) and Bond himself (ISTP). This pairing has a sharp appeal for me, similar to the iNTP/ENFP pairing above - Ti dom matched with the type that’s dominant in their auxiliary function. But let’s not get too technical. Let me instead sigh over that film’s deeply tragic ending (we have all the time in the world…)
Similar in functions to my #1, but instead pairing two Guardian types. I think of this one as the business partners romance. People who get to know each other in a day-to-day setting, and slowly come to appreciate each other. My favorite pairing in this one is Cangel (Cordelia Chase/Angel), from the Buffy-verse (though mostly on the spinoff, Angel). I guess I’ve mostly featured my more tragic OTPs here; I don’t usually go as much for the tragic love story, I prefer the one with the happy ending, but that’s just the ones I ended up featuring. Again, another sigh, and a muttered “Curse you Joss Whedon and your ability to write brilliant romances and then rip our collective hearts out by ending them tragically!”
So lately i’ve seen some posts of people fighting over their ships claiming everything thats wrong with canon (NH/SS) and on the other hand how delusional are other ships
I’m a sasunaru blog, i get how y'all are not happy with the end cause i’m not either but i don’t think we’ll get anywhere fighting each other.
In my personal case, its not the couples itself that bothers me but how badly developed their relationships were written, but this is just me.
In spite of the above, i try not to bash on them bc i know they are some people’s otps and i respect that
Respecting is different from agreeing, and i wasn’t like that in the begining, but im much happier now that i am
My point is, we can have endless arguments about which couples makes more sense, OR we can use our time and energy into creating our own endings, something that can make you and others happy. I like this option better. I mean, i love seeing your oc’s, who cares about whats canon or not, its still fiction! thats the magic of fictional worlds isn’t it???
Lets all be respectful of other’s ships and have a good time 🐸
maybe the worst is behind // Lost and found, through thick and thin; a playlist for Wash and Tucker, two dorks in love.

“[In the final scene of the series], Rin as usual is eager for a race, but Haruka smiles when he looks at Rin. All we really see is that, but I believe that’s a shot that illustrates their new relationship as they walk down the same path of professional swimming together.” - Utsumi
“Anna?” Our foreheads touch. “Yes?” “Will you please tell me you love me? I’m dying here.” And then we’re laughing. And then I’m in his arms, and we’re kissing, at first quickly—to make up for lost time—and then slowly, because we have all the time in the world. And his lips are soft and honey sweet, and the careful, passionate way he moves them against my own says that he savors the way I taste, too. And in between kisses, I tell him I love him. Again and again and again.”
I've been shipping for years and usually it ends with unconfirmed/sunk ships, but this ONE ship, from ONE SHOW, cleanses all the bad feelings, to the point I'm not sure it's real? There's a movie about how the two got together? A whole arc about other characters getting them wedding presents? An entire series about their children? Is this all real? The world of shipping isn't this kind
ahhhh. it’s amazing right!
you know what. i’ve had (still have) many many ships, most have turned out okay-ish thankfully. but i’ve shipped naruhina since 2007, dropped naruto, started watching again in 2012, came back to the fandom officially in mid 2014, decided naruhina was my otp of otp’s at a time where even though the things we got were wonderful they were not frequent so the fandom was kinda like “we’ll take what we can get :)” and then at the end of 2014 somehow EVERYTHING CAME AT ONCE AT FULL SPEED and we were like WHAT IS GOING ON
fast forward to 2017 we’re still being blessed what did i ever do to deserve this. most of my ships have nowhere near as much canon content and this is a shonen. somehow nh has everything you could ever possibly want: development since children, confessions from both sides, a kiss, dates, marriage with the wedding shown, adorable kids, support from friends, loving extended family. the ship itself is 100% healthy but still entertaining because they’re so dorky and sweet
the hostility from certain fandom communities can never ruin that like who cares i’ll be here all day chillin with all these gifts wooooo blessed ship
One of Sha Lin’s biggest things he wants to do is take Kinessa to see the world. He’s currently stashing away all his pay from being a Paladin for that day they finally retire or get a long holiday to just sweep Kinessa off onto a plane and go travelling. He hasn’t told her yet of course, it’s supposed to be a surprise! She has asked a few times why he doesn’t really spend his money, but he always insists he likes to travel light.
But I have to take a moment to spread some “Mary is a special, talented snowflake” love.
You guys know how much I simply adore Mary McDonnell. She’s my precious snowflake for so many reasons, but her immense talent is what I respect about her the most. It’s just such a gift. If anyone doubts her abilities, then they need look no further than her role as Laura Roslin on BSG. It’s probably my favorite performance by any actor ever. It actually moves me, and not just because of the story and what her character endures throughout, but her actual performance strikes an emotional cord with me because it’s just so beautiful. I could devote an entire blog to various moments (big and small) that illustrate this point, but I just wanted to mention one that has been on my mind lately (I blame all the Roslin/Adama on my dash).
There is a very understated moment at the end of “Blood on the Scales” (4x14) where Laura returns to the Galactica and sees Bill for the first time after being told that he was dead. If memory serves, she had already known by this point that he was alive, but there’s just something about seeing that for yourself. She climbs down the ladder and turns to see him standing across the way unharmed. As much as I love a good “run and hug your man” and all the passion and romance that goes along with that, this moment was so much more powerful. She makes this intake of breath that devolves into a sob, and it’s just absolutely beautiful and gut-wrenchingly real. I just don’t think anyone else could have pulled off all the emotion of that scene with a single sob the way Mary does. That one little sob moment/scene is one of my favorite acting moments of all time.
Yeah maybe Darvey wasn't the original idea of the show, maybe when they wrote the pilot that wasn't the idea, but does it really matter at this point?
I hate when I read people saying Darvey is fanservice. YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT FANSERVICE MEANS. I’ve watched Suits since 2013. Donna and Harvey were loved even then, when we only had s1-s2, but we weren’t a lot. We weren’t one of those BIG fandoms that make things happens (there are a lot of fandoms like this), the fandom is bigger and bigger now. And you know why? Because the show wanted to. I get if you don’t like Darvey, I do, it’s impossible to have all people agree on one single thing, but the fandom is like this because of the show. Not the other way around. The show decided to go there. They saw this amazing chemistry and this potential and they’ve worked on that. I’ve been there since s3 started. I’ve waited for Donna and Harvey every single hiatus, I’ve watched Donna and Harvey every single week, and I hate when people say that it’s something out of nowhere. Fanservice? The show added depth to this story. The first time they met. All the history. All the hints. Everything is there since season 1. If you look at the show now, you see that everything makes sense. “Because you can never go back.” “Feelings just go away.. Eventually.” “Do you love Harvey Specter?” “About that time…” “Is this about you?” Oh… This is all until s2. I could go all day, honestly. So, i get if you’re disappointed, if you don’t like them, if you don’t want it to happen, but they’ve always been there. And Darvey fans have waited since forever. With all the patience in the world. Just let us enjoy our moment. We deserve it.
