How to Tell The Signs Like You

Aries: Lots of hugs.  They will often challenge you, whether this is challenging your beliefs or trying to prove their worth by winning a game.  They get jealous easily and may come off as harsh when they see you flirting with or giving attention to someone else.  They will think about you more than they like to admit.  They will want to be updated with what’s going on in your life, and will actually show interest in your routines/interactions with others.  There is a good chance these guys will just tell you how they feel.

Taurus: They’ll ask for your opinions on things and will try to hold stimulating conversations with you. All of your quirks and bad habits will become cute to them.  They will look at you like you are this special human being who must be protected at all costs.  Sometimes they’ll make fun of you, but all good natured.  You will consume their thoughts.  They will compliment you on things they admire about you in an almost-manipulative way of letting you know who they want you to be. All earth signs are somewhat manipulative.  Taurus’ are just so sweet when they like someone, please don’t hurt them, they constantly fear that once they open up, they’ll be misunderstood or rejected, so don’t be discouraged by a more reserved presence. This is why they want to know so much about you.

Gemini: Witty and talkative.  You may think they are always this way, but if they like you, you’ll see it in their eyes.  They can be absolutely weird when talking to their crush.  They let their guard down.  They’ll try to treat you like just another friends if they don’t want to be too obvious about it, but still they’ll pay more attention to what you have to say.  They can be touchy, similar to Leos, but more spontaneous.  Be careful with Geminis, they look at love as an experience/adventure; they are most likely to lead someone on for the thrill of it.  They’ll also be really supportive and encourage you to go after what you want.  They want the best for you.

Cancer: Shy and so sweet.  All of their friends are 100% aware that they like you.  You can probably know more about how a cancer feels about you by observing how their friends act around you.  They are not exactly coy, but more cautious.  Lots of soft eyes and smiles.  They won’t hesitate to ask if you’re okay or how you’re doing, unless they doubt themselves.  If you see them looking at you, they are trying to figure out what to say to you or a way to subtly interact with you. They fear rejection, so they are probably least likely to make the first move.

Leo: They’ll probably flat out tell you that they like you.  Everyone within earshot will know it. They get really touchy feely and will play games with you.  Footsies under the table.  They will say some things and you’ll be like what the fuck are you talking about, but forgive them, it’s their way of being nervous, even if they don’t know it.  They’ll want to be around you. They will make more eye contact than they typically would with other people.  If they really like you, they’ll adopt this special “voice” which they will only talk to you in.  It’s often softer, sweeter, and really irresistible.  They can be SO protective (it’s adorable)!! They also try to impress you and it may come off as arrogant, but it’s actually so cute ‘cause they just want you to see how great they are.

Virgo:  They will challenge you, but not in the same way that Aries does.  Virgos tend to display their more negative qualities (sometimes on accident) to see if you are worth their time.  They tend to be very insecure, so they need to know that you will stand by them at their worst.  They will certainly pick out your flaws if they like you and may be harder on you because they want you to be the best you that you can be.  They may tag along with your friend group to be around you.  They often misinterpret feelings so they may share the “hot and cold” nature that Capricorns have because they are paranoid.  They’ll open up to you just a bit more than they would with others.  They want to make sure you stimulate them intellectually before they get too serious, this is important to them.

Libra: This is a toughy because Libras are generally very charming and likable people.  A good way to determine whether they like you is by asking around- if a Libra likes you, they will never say no when asked by others if they like you (unless they have good reason).  They will try to be around you frequently and will try to show you their best side.  They will treat you differently than other people if they like you, so watch out for any soft voices or loving eyes that they save for only a special someone.  

Scorpio: If they give you any special attention at all, this is a good sign.  Scorpios are typically indifferent to people who do not interest/benefit them in the slightest.  Scorpios are known for their impulsive wit and charm, but can be a bit more awkward (in a cute way) and less witty around their crush.  EYES EYES EYES. Expect intense eye contact and lots of “subtle” staring from a smitten Scorpio.  They are very protective, sometimes even possessive over their crush.  Their eyes will light up with curiosity or lust at the mention of you.

Sagittarius: They try extra hard to make you laugh.  They can be very childish and just want you to see the adventure in everything.  They will try to impress you with their random acquired skills, which can range from being able to identify every bird in sight to the capability of balancing a pencil on their nose for several minutes.  Sometimes they stutter or are more shy around the person they like, which is a telltale because Sags are nearly always outgoing or at least projective of what’s going on with them.  They will compliment you a lot.  They will try to be what they think you want<—-Capricorns do this too, but they merely deduce your personality and accentuate the features they think you’ll appreciate. While Sags think they are doing what Capricorns do so well, they really need to find someone who will accept them for who they are.

Capricorn: They will be very hot and cold.  One day, they can be outrageous and flirty and coy, but you can bet your life that they will go home and overthink it and the next day they will give their utmost effort to avoid you or seem indifferent towards you.  This is because Capricorns have a superiority complex, and sometimes a crush makes them feel weak; they are afraid of getting hurt so they will never act too smitten for too long.  This is why most Capricorns will not admit to their feelings until they are secure in the fact that you feel the same way.  A Capricorn will also try to help you and give you advice, not because they think you are wrong or in need of actual help, but because they care about your well being and want you to live the best life you can.  They will try to impress you with their unique talents or philosophies.  They can be very coy and charming.  Intense eye contact (they honestly believe they can seduce you with their eyes).  They are chivalrous regardless of gender; they love holding doors for their crush (like literally all of them do this).  Side note: they will never forget a single thing you say or do.  Ever.

Aquarius: They will want to hang around you.  They tend to be more reserved emotionally, but will mess around with you to cope.  Like gemini, they will encourage you to go after what they think is best for you.  If you are currently interested in someone else, a crushing Aquarius will not be too fond of said person and try to convince you that you “deserve better.” They will not let conversations die.  Aquarians don’t have the greatest attention span so they definitely admire you in some way if they hold convos with you, especially over text.  Lots of laughter too!! Lots of staring, they probably won’t even look away when you make eye contact with them.  Actually, they may just laugh out loud. They are often more courteous of you than they are with others.

Pisces: Think coy and giggly. They are the ultimate dreamers and will utterly want to share these dreams and desires with you.  They can be pretty awkward, but it’s cute.  They’ll try to look their best around you.  They get a bit shy, but are almost always in a flirty mood.  Lots of poking and material stealing and cute doodles.  They are the epitome of a “middle school crush” if you get what I mean.  The boys tend to be this way more than the girls because sometimes the girls consider it childish.  Sometimes.  They are most likely to stalk you on social media.  Pisces flirt immensely through technology, and are great at sending cute texts or messages.  This is often because they stutter or withdraw in real life.  If they are single and ready to mingle, you’ll know, with frequent sighs and several exclamations of “no one likes me” followed by insecure laughter.  Basically, they’re cute.

Your back was starting to ache from this angle and you couldn’t tell if your butt hurt or it was just numb. You’d been sitting in this tree sketching a robin’s nest for the past hour. You were severely regretting not taking a picture to sketch from. It was too late now. You were already up here.

You tapped the pencil against your lips. You looked back at the nest and decided you saw its likeness. In one motion, you lost your pencil and your balance stupidly trying to catch it. You watched it tumble through the air and hit an unexpected target. The pencil bounced off his hair and into the grass.

He bent down to examine what had just cause him a minor pain. You held back a laugh at his confusion, but instead focused on his jacket. South Side Serpents. How curious? You were going to let him wonder about where the pencil had come from, but you couldn’t resist a jest.

“So, were they fresh out of T Bird jackets at the Halloween shop?”

Jughead smirked as he came back up. He twiddled the pencil between his fingers and looked for his assailant.

“Ha ha. You’re hilarious.” His eyes moved around.

Request: Mayor Damien confesses his love for the reader under stress from Mark’s murder. @line-viper

Genre: fluff



You started off as Damien’s secretary, showing up at City Hall to schedule meetings for the mayor and assist on brunches with politicians, all while doing so in a pencil skirt and balancing twenty files in your hands. There was always the threat of an office romance, and you brushed every single one of them off before falling into the arms of your employer.

Damien’s good looks weren’t the only reason you slept with him, but months of late night dinners over work, inside jokes and awkward flirting, and he was as charming and kind as any gentleman was expected to be. Your secret fling went undiscovered, and you and Damien pretended like that office Christmas party never even happened.

anonymous asked:

Could you do a Kylo x reader where the reader is a super prestigious and serious First Order officer and Kylo catches her doing some quirky shit like holding a pen between her nose and and upper lip or spinning around in a spin by chair when she thinks no one is watching

Requests open! (Holla at ya girl with Obi-wan and Anakin requests!) 


Being in the First Order was hard. Not only were you a high standing officer, you were known around the base to be kind of an asshole to all your underlings and even some of your superiors. 

You had been training under the eye of Hux and were next in line if he was unable to attend a meeting or the sort but you were also someone who went out on mission when you were able to. Not many knew how you got such a special position but you did. 

The work hour was nearing down and it was almost time to switch shifts with those who worked at night. You had finished the paperwork that Hux had given you and were just waiting for the day to end. That usually meant Hux coming in and telling you that you were done for the day. 

Just as you got up to put everything away, you noticed the pencil about to fall from the desk and quickly grabbed it. It had been a while since you had done this stupid balancing on your lip thing but you used to do it all the time back at home. 

You had sat down and laid the pencil on your lip. You had zoned out a lot as a kid and this was 90% of the reason why your teachers and parents yelled at you so that why you were as strict as you were. 

“Officer, Hux wanted me to inform-”

“Ren, don’t you know how to knock on a door! What if I had been changing or doing something in private,” You said as your face went red with embarrassment. 

“Officer, we all know that these offices are always being watched. Secondly, were you trying to balance a pencil on your face?” He asked with a hint of a smirk on his face. 

Just as you wanted to punch him for the comment, you couldn’t help but laugh at your stupid and childish behavior. Just as you started laughing, Kylo started to laugh right a long with you. His long dark hair covering his red stricken face.

It’ll Get Easier

After a particularly nasty fight with Ronan, Adam finds himself standing alone in his tiny apartment.


His hands are shaking with the effort to not turn around and go back to the Barns, and he almost wants to laugh at how afraid he is of this new thing between them coming to an end. It’s unreasonable to think that way, really. Adam knows they both care about each other too much to let a fight be the reason they call it quits. Their friendship has always been filled with arguments, some stupid and some not; and despite that, Ronan had still chosen him. On the small bed of his childhood bedroom, with a kiss as confession, he’d chosen Adam.
