lmao there is a clear marked difference between how white people are taking reactions to magnus’ cutting remark to alec (‘don’t praise magnus’) versus people of color who are hyped up at an asian man getting to be messy instead of the all accepting boyfriend
idk there’s a lot of pearl clutching about the jokes and i feel like there’s a racial divide to it 🤔
Thank you for your lovely comments, darlings!!! I hope you like what I did with your prompts!! Enjoy!!! <3
Warning: Hot make-outs, smutty mentions, cute Bughead galore and just me fawning over the bae that is Cole Sprouse.
“We have to go.” Kiss
“Hmm, in a second.” Kiss
“One day – kiss –
we’ll get caught – kiss – and they’ll
definitely expel us.” HardKiss.
“Oh, I’d love to see you, Betty Cooper – kiss – getting expelled over a steamy
make out.” Bite.
Betty just let a breathless laugh, alternating the
angle of her head and dropped her arms to his shoulders, crossing them by the
wrists behind his head. Jughead’s smile grew more in delight against her lips
and he dove in again, pecking her lips hard. They were in one of the dusty
storage rooms of their high school, the smallest one and the one with no
windows, exploring this new-found feeling of being in love and being a couple,
mist old broken chairs and random school supplies. Betty was perched up on an
unused desk that lay against the wall, dressed for her cheerleading practice in
her usual white and yellow t-shirt and dark blue shorts, while her boyfriend
was standing deliciously between her gorgeous legs, school bag, denim jacket
and beanie abandoned somewhere on the floor, kissing her like there was no
tomorrow for God knows how long now.
That was basically they daily routine. Ever since the
two of them overcame their irrational fears of rejection and possible
heartbreak and talked with each other about that kiss that held all of
Jughead’s suppressed emotions all those years, they couldn’t overlook their
mutual feeling of desiring to be together. Three weeks had passed since that
day and, despite of the new challenges they were faced with every day,
regarding their unconventional families and the amorality that seemed to emerge
every once in a while of the core of their small town, the two teens were basking
in the afterglow of their romance with affectionate gestures and heated make
outs. The only cloud shading their Romeo and Juliet fairytale was that
everything was being done in shadows, like a good, concealed secret.
They wanted to tell people; and they would do it. They
weren’t afraid or ashamed, both emotions equally unfair to the
wonderful union that it was them. They just wanted to do it in their own terms,
without excited friends or controlling parents getting in their way, without having
to explain themselves or put labels and boundaries in something that came and
kept growing natural to them. So, janitor’s closets and storage rooms it was.
ahh your kang daniel au was so cute, i absolutely adore all of your university au's anxiwmxomw 😭 if you wouldn't mind, could you maybe do one for ong seongwoo as well? thank you so much, angel, have a great day!! 💖
like ten people asked for ong,,,so here’s his mini college au~~ find kang daniel (here) ^^
major: interior design
sports: did football team with daniel for like a week,,,,dropped it and picked up swimming instead LOL
when people first meet him they all think he’s a serious like physics major who wants to be an engineer or a doctor,,,,,like he’s handsome and smart,,,,straight from a webcomic kinda boy
bUT jokes on them he’s into interior design and likes looking at textiles and getting excited over his new ikea catalogue coming in the mail
actually despises the fact that you need to take college algebra for the major because like ugh maTH
tried to bribe daehwi into doing his homework for him but daehwi was like 50 bucks or i suddenly cant do simple addition and seongwoo was like im bROKE
and daehwi was like hmmm too bad ask daniel or something
is bestfriends and roommates with daniel which is really funny because one side of the room is covered in drawings and designs with messy canvas bags full of fabric samples and sketchbooks ,,,,,, while the other side is strung up with posters on medical safety procedures and daniels leaning tower of paramedic course books
but their friendship is super cute seongwoo keeps going like “bro if we’re both sad and alone at 40 lets just adopt a dog together or something-” and daniel is like “that sounds good but no dog. 12 cats.”
but again they’re both like heartthrobs on campus,,,,there’s a fanclub dedicated to gushing over seongwoo when he’s in the library studying just because everyone wants to see that handsome side profile tbh
little do they know that virtually every close friend of his has like 3943 photos of seongwoo doing the ugLIEST faces on snapchat and shit for the Memes
jisung and him are in an ongoing rivalry for who has the superior shocked face they have contests like every time they meet up LOL
you’re actually friends with seongwoo through a class you take together,,,that dreaded college algebra,,,, and one day seongwoo tells you that he likes to drum
which is ,,,,,,like a dream of yours,,,,,you’ve always wanted to learn how to play and you practically beG him to teach you
and seongwoo being seongwoo is like ,,,,,,,, give me the answers to this weeks homework and i will
and ur like FINE but ,,,,idk if the answers will be write and seongwoo shrugs like it doesn’t matter as long as i don’t need to look @ numbers,,,,im good
so you agree to meet up in the music department later like at 8 and when you get there thankfully the drum set for the college band is free
and you sit down eagerly,,,,trying to do a flip of the sticks before seongwoo takes them away and you’re like HEY and he’s like “first things first - cool drummers dont flip their sticks in the air like fools”
and ur like -____- fine whatever where do we start then
and for a couple of weeks you and seongwoo meet up in the evenings so he can teach you
and at first it’s super casual and fun,,,you guys talk about how much you hate college algebra,,,how you keep seeing minki’s face on flyers for student government elections,,,,,how the lights in all the dorms flicker for like a good three minutes before actually turning off
like the usual,,,and then one day you’re sitting,,,,trying out a technique seongwoo showed you but you keep skipping a part
so he comes over,,,,,putting his arms around you from behind and settling them on your wrists so e can guide your hands
and for the first time,,,,,you’re hyper aware of how,,,,,close seongwoo is
how he smells like fresh laundry,,,,how the vein running up his arm looks,,,,and when you make the mistake of turning your face to see him
,,,,,,you highlight the sharp curve of his jaw,,,his dark and alluring eyes,,,,the perfect slope of his nose,,,,and his neck,,,,,
the warmth of his body makes you suddenly freeze up and when seongwoo notices how tense your arm has gotten he lets go,,,,
and for a second neither of you say anything
seongwoo opens his mouth but you just shake your head before he can speak
and you’re like “no, i know. don’t say it,,,i know you,,,,aren’t interested,,,,and i made it awkward,,,,,im sorry- im going to go-”
and seongwoo seems like he wants to grab you before you can go but you escape his outstretched arm just in time to run out
seongwoo left standing in the room,,,,,,confused and hurt as you make your way toward the dorms telling yourself over and over
that you ruined it,,,,a good friendship,,,,,with the sudden realization that you didn’t want just friendship at all did you,,,,
and it’s not like you skip college algebra because of seongwoo noooo haha you totally got sick and had to not come
but,,,,,,you know sooner or later you’re going to have to see him but you really r e a l l y dont want too
unfortunately,,,, it comes even sooner because someone knocks on your dorm and you think it’s your roommate,,,but when you open it
seongwoo is there,,,,
and you’re like “w-what is it?” and he’s like looking down but when he meets your eyes he gives you that smile,,,,the one with the dimple and it makes your heart hurt but he waves the textbook he brought with him and he’s like “since you were sick,,,,i thought i should come and help you catch up?”
and you know seongwoo hates that class,,,that he’d never tutor someone else in it,,,,,let alone you so you want to shut the door and tell him you’re still sick
but seongwoo pulls a mask out of his pocket and is like ‘i can wear this so you don’t cough on me!!’ and you cant tell if he’s being silly or if he really just wants to talk to you
so you end up sitting beside each other on your bed and it’s,,,,,awkward until seongwoo finally takes a deep breath and turns to you
“you said you knew i wasn’t interested,,,,,but how could you say that?”
you kind of frown and you’re like,,,because we ,,,,,are just friends? you’ve never made any moves and you’re swarmed by people liking you all the time what is there-”
but seongwoo puts up his hand and is like “ok, but do i devote my time to those people? to teach them to play drums? to laugh with them in class? outside of class? do you know i blew of daniel for you,,,,,that’s a lot coming from me that dudes my soulmate”
and ur like ?????? wait so is it daniel or - and seongwoo is like nO like my bro soulmate but you,,,,,,it’s different i,,,,
he seems to suddenly get shy,,,,scratching at his cheek and you’re like ??? and he’s like “when i was,,,,,teaching you,,,with my hands on yours,,,,,,,i wanted to,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,it’s hard to say this but i wanted to pull you closer,,,,,,,,god this is embarrassing,,,,,”
and you’ve never seen seongwoo blush until now and like,,,,,it’s so fREAKING cute that you just need to scoot closer
and seongwoo is like !
and you’re like “,,,,,i,,,,,wanted you to hold me closer too.”
with a small smile he turns his body toward you,,,opening his arms and he’s like “well,,,,i can still do that. come here.”
and you can’t believe it but you and seongwoo fall back onto your bed,,,,you in his arms laughing at how silly this is
and seongwoo leans down,,,,brushing your hair from your face and he’s about to kiss you when the doorknob turns and you’re like mY ROOMMATE
and you throw him a bit and soengwoo ends up on the floor,,,hair a mess and eyes wide and you’re like sitting on the bed and ur roommate is just like oh,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,ill come back in twenty bye
and with that you and seongwoo let out a sigh but he climbs back up on the bed and starts tickling you because oW thrOWING HIM OFF WAS thaT NECESSARY
dating college!seongwoo: he totally misplaces everything like he cant even find his own notebook so you’d probably have to be the one to be like seongwoo no no your laptop is under the desk drawer and your sketch book is on the shelf no no not the bottom shelf babe listen to me-, he looks extra fluffy in the mornings when he’s still got his hair uncombed and his eyes are sleepy but he’s also super soft because his voice gets lower and he just wants to cuddle, like seriously seongwoo just always wants to cuddle and hold hands, you could both be sweltering out in the sun on the quad and no matter how sweaty your palms get he’ll be like no we need to hold onto each other i need everyone to know you’re with me, pretends to not know that he’s being sexy when he’s laying down and his shirt is pulled up a little and he keeps pocking his tongue out to run across his lips and ur like seongwoo dont do that i need to study and he’s like do what~ and ur like oh my god,,,,,sends you random close ups of parts of his face and is like am i handsome~ do u still love me~, is a lil jealous that you and daniel get along so well but also is really happy because whenever you guys hangout together it’s a blast, does the occasional corny thing like buys you a big teddy bear that he names after himself or does a dance to try get you to give him extra kisses but it’s all worth it because he’s adorable, wants matching sweaters soooo bad and keeps dropping hints, likes when you sit in his lap and he plays with your hair while you read outloud to him, whenever you’re a little upset or scared he sings gently against your ear and it calms you down, when you can you take baths together and he keeps trying to get you to make him a bubble beard LOL
Pairing: Steve Rogers x Reader Rating: Mature - 18+ only Summary: Steve and Reader train together until things get heated between them and for the sake of every member of the Avengers team. Word Count: 2.4k Genre: NSFW/SMUT Warnings: what you can expect in a softcore smutty fic, but safe: sexual tension, swearing, dry humping and safe sex. Author’s Note: The beginning is a rewriting of a training scene in AoS, season 3.
“Steve, I’m not gonna fight you… again.” You panted heavily in the late evening as you finished thirty minutes of hard training with the super soldier, after a quick workout session with the rest of the team.
“It’s not fighting, it’s training.” He ran a hand through his hair, brushing the locks out of his forehead.
“The last time we trained alone, I had to stop my powers because you were too sweet,” you made your best puppy eyes, and he chuckled as he drank some water.
“You won’t hurt me, Y/N because you won’t use your abilities,” he came back to the mats, ready to fight. “And I can be dark sometimes.”
“We finally found a night off in three weeks, and this is what you want to do?” You threw your hands in the air dramatically as you exposed your annoyance. “We could be lounging or binge watching some show. Or…”
“I need to blow off some steam, and you said training was the core of a partnership when you worked with S.H.I.E.L.D. So, that’s what we are doing.”
“You’re such a workaholic, you know that?”
“I miss you too,” he smiled and you mimicked. “I know, a friend shouldn’t be away for this long, so you can hit me,” he quipped, yet he wished it wasn’t true and you were his girlfriend.

Hello! Could you do a hoseok mermaid au please? I just really find that concept real cute :)) and and i just wanna say i love your bloggg !
really felt like writing some hoseok,,,,so here you go!!!
is a merman,,,,but his lower part is smooth and not scaley,,,it’s more similar to a shark than to a fish
he has double fins near his hips and some scars around them because he’s always trying to get up close to new coral and new fish that he hasn’t seen before and his friends jin and yoongi always tell him to watch himself,,,,,but hoseok kind of lives for adventure and never listens so,,,
his skin is a golden tan but once you get to the gills near his neck it turns slightly blue like his tail with small speckles running from below his jaw up into his cheekbones
wears shark teeth earrings that taehyung made him
when he smiles it’s like ,,,,,,there’s sunshine underwater????? rumor has it it reflects up into the sky???
but also when he smiles u can see that some of his teeth are super duper sharp compared to a normal mermaids
you actually work at a small seaside cafe during the summers that sits right on the boardwalk to the ocean
and on some mornings the owners trust u with opening up the place but,,,,that’s like super early around 5am,,,,,and some people are out mostly those who jog on the boardwalk and all that
but the beach is practically vacant but one day ur sure u can see the figure of someone sitting in the rocks close to underneath one of the boardwalks bridges
and u think,,,,,for a moment,,,,,that u have to be hallucinating,,,or maybe the person ur seeing spent the night there????
worried u grab some food from the cafe,,,,and head out to see if the person might be hungry in case they’re homeless or something
but as ur climbing over the sharp rocks you accidentally scrape your arm which somehow makes the boy a couple yards away react
(maybe it has something to do with a sharks keen sense of smell,,,esp for blood)
but he turns and for a moment u just freeze because,,,,he’s too far to hear u??? right??? but u wave awkwardly either way,,,wincing when u realize ur hand has started to bleed
but you just clutch your fingers into a fist and try to make ur way over and the boy,,,,,once ur only three feet away,,,,is still looking at your hand
and u notice how handsome he is,,,,but theres some kind of discoloration in his face,,,,and u see something that looks like fins on his neck and ur like wha-
but he reaches out before u can say anything and takes ur hand thats still in a fist, gently prying it open and then?????? bringing it to his lips
and ur like ?!?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?1? UM but when he pulls back he smiles and u see his teeth and ur like even more confused but he just keeps grinning and goes
“u should wrap the cut with seaweed, it’ll stop ur bleeding” and ur like caught between being at a loss for words because did this stranger lick your wound? why does he have gills? his eyes are such a pretty sparkling brown? what is going on?
and hoseok suddenly splashes his tail which diverts ur attention and ur like OH MY GOD MERMAID
and hoseok bursts into laughter and is like “yep!!! sometimes people say sharkmaid,,,,sharkman,,,,but yeah!! my names hoseok by the way!!”
and he sticks his hand out like it’s the mOST casuaL Thing
but the only words u can blurt out are “people know about you?” and hoseok blinks a bit and laughs again and is like “not really!!!! but i realized u were hurt so i couldnt just slip away into the water.”
his smile settles on his face again and ur still standing there pretty sure ur in bed dreaming rn
when hoseok points at the bag and is like “for me???” and ur like “y-y-yeah but it’s a- a- -t–tuna–tuna- s-sand-sandwhich i-so-sorry-didn’t know-kn -know u wer-e a m-mermaid-shark-sharkmaid-mer—me–merma”
and hoseok seems a little shocked by your shaking voice and he takes the bag anyway and thanks u and asks if u wanna sit beside him he’s going to leave soon since people are going to start coming out but since u already know he’s here ^^
and u do,,,knees basically giving out because ur still looking at him like this- what-
and up close u can see his gills better and the long,,,blue fins near his waist and where his ears should be,,,the shark teeth swaying from them every time he tilts his head to give u a smile
and u dont know what to even ask or say all u can think of is “are u,,,,a prince?? like in little mermaid she’s a princess so-” and this cracks hoseok up again
and he’s like no no im normal,,,,just like you
and you’re like no no no u have a.,,,,,,tail,,,,,,,,a shark tail,,,,,,i just have legs
and hoseok is like this is true but hey we both have eyes and a nose and look ur cute!!! i cute too!!!
and ur like kjsdhfgfds oh,,,,yes,,,u are cute,,,,,but im n-
and hoseok puts his finger to ur lips and is like “nope! ur cute. ive seen some humans before,,,,,none as cute as you”
and the compliment makes u flush and u look down at the water
and hoseok thinks to himself that are all humans this shy,,,,,it’s even more endearing than he thought,,,,
when suddenly a boats horn passes by and hoseok slips into the water off the rocks and it startles u
but he pocks his head up above the water and is like “thanks for the,,,,,,sandwich u said??? i liked meeting u!!! let’s see each other again!!”
and u get up and lean over a bit so u can be closer to hear him
when hoseok takes off his earring and outstretches his hand to u and is like “here!! so u can remember me cute human!!”
and with that he smiles one last time,,,,the sharp teeth don’t even bother u because u feel like that smile ,,,,,is somehow the warmest smile u have ever seen
and disappears into the ocean
and u stand there,,,,holding the shark tooth earring,,,,wondering if ull see him again,,,,,,,,,,,or if ur seriously still dreaming
A/N: I went bowling the other day and I couldn’t stop thinking what It would be like going with Jungkook lmao. Basically just a short PWP :) Also I didn’t know how to name this soooooooo idk enjoy.
“C’mon y/n don’t be like that”
“I’ve already told you that I don’t
want to!” You said for the 100 time to your persistent boyfriend, if there was
something you knew about Jungkook was that he was the most stubborn man you
have ever known, he didn’t take a no for an answer, but this time you were
determined to not let him break your resolution, he couldn’t always have what
he wants and he had to learn that.
“It will be fun!” he whined while
pouting and simulating that he was crying, you swear to god sometimes you
thought he was a little kid inside the body of a grown up man, a very sexy at
“You know I don’t like it” you said
to Jungkook who was now sitting in the couch of the apartment the both of you
“How come you know you don’t like it
if you have never tried it before, huh?” he asked you.
He got you at that but before he
could said something else you rushed to answer “Do I have to try trash to know
that I won’t like eating it?”
He rolled his eyes as he crossed his
arms, he looked cute when he couldn’t get what he wanted, you would admit.
“Don’t compare bowling to trash.”
@broken-roses- I finally did it, say hi to my disastrous take on the hanahaki disease inspired by this post. It turned out way longer than intended but I hope it’s still fine.
Lance missed the Earth, and it was no secret. He missed it the same way he missed his family, the two realities blurring and mingling together in a dull nostalgia most of the time. He missed the ocean and the shore, the glimmering sand under the sun, the hot white pebbles along the road, the birds chirping shrilly in the branches shook by the breeze… to the pretty flowers blossoming here and there, he had to admit, he never gave much thought. And yet, if asked, he would have loved to be given the opportunity of seeing even those again. So he thought at least, but in truth, what were the odds of him somehow finding earth flowers here in space? As unexpected as it was, Lance did end up seeing earth flowers again, and the same small, light blue ones that grew between the cracks of his front door steps at that. It was just petals at first. So small, so frail, the very firsts must have gone unnoticed.
Summary: The reader has a secret and tries to protect Sam and Dean from it.
Word Count: 4223
Warnings: Sexual situation, Angst, Dying
A/N: A long time ago @thing-you-do-with-that-thing me this ask: I wish you would write a fic that starts with the reader sneaking out of the Bunker at odd hours of the night. Dean confronts her about it but she makes up excuses so one night he follows her and…..
I’d like to issue a formal apology to Kari about the angst.
As always, feedback is welcomed and appreciated. Tags are at the bottom.
Dean wakes when he hears muffled footsteps in the bunker hallway. Fumbling in the dark, he reaches for the pistol in the top drawer of his nightstand. It’s highly unlikely that there’s an intruder in the bunker, but it never hurts to be careful.
Cautiously making his way down the hall, he pauses and opens Sam’s door quietly. Sam is out like a light, snoring softly. The next door is (Y/N)’s. Silently he twists the knob and peeks in. (Y/N) is not in her bed.
Moving a little more rapidly, he makes it to the library just in time to hear the outside door open. The door is heavy and groans loudly in protest. It slams shut as Dean makes his way up the stairs, two at a time.
He makes it out the door just in time to see the taillights of (Y/N)’s disappearing down the drive.
I’d like to say I was stoic about the whole thing, stiff upper lip and all that. I thought I was made of sterner stock, but I just parked the car at the end of a long, dusty road and sobbed. For hours. Sobbed until I couldn’t breathe. Until my ribs hurt and my lungs felt like they were going to explode.
My heart aches as if it’s splitting into little shards of glass, splintering and fracturing, tiny lines cracking through it.
I am not strong enough for this.
I am terrified.
The sun is just breaking over the horizon when I pull up in front of the bunker. Pinks and oranges wash over the clouds, the rays of the sun promising a warm and sunny day.
Despite the weariness in my bones, or maybe in spite of it, I take a moment to appreciate it’s stunning beauty. I close my eyes and imagine for a moment that the sun is melting away all my pain and fear.
But I open my eyes and the dream fades and disappears.
requested: please can you do imagine where y/n is on tour with shawn and he proposed to her and then before the Q&A it’s cute and fluffy and shawn goes to Q&A and fans ask about y/n so she goes to shawn and fans see ring and ask about it and shawn is talking about it and y/n says something like “you told it first. you owe me a dinner cute ass” bc they made a deal about who spills the tea about proposal 😊 also sorry for my English bc I’m from Poland 😊
AHH THIS IS SUPA CUTE I LOVE LOVE LOVE
also teen mendes helped me out again 😂😂😂 what would i do without her
“y/n!” shawn burst through the doors of the tour bus. you were laying across the small couch, not really having much to do while shawn was at sound check before his q&a. “come with me m'lady.”
he stretched his hand out to help you off the couch as you giggled at his cheesiness.
“where are you taking me?” you asked, following him out of the now empty tour bus. he led you away from the venue he was due to perform at in 2 hours, and into a small park area.
“let’s take a walk or something, i feel bad i have to perform on your birthday.” he apologized, again. you knew deciding to join him on tour would mean he would be performing on your birthday, and you were okay with it.
“shawn, its fine honestly. as long as i get to see you, i’m fine with it.”
he shook is head, “well i’m not fine with it. it’s your birthday y/n, it only comes around once a year! we’re gonna take a walk.”
you just nodded, interlocking your hands and letting shawn pull you along. thankfully it was a nice day here in new york, the sun was shining as you walked along the deserted pathway.
you loved that even with his busy schedule, shawn always tried to take some time in the day to spend with you. no matter what he was doing.
“i love you,” you sighed, thinking out loud.
he chuckled, “that was random but i love you too,” he kissed your temple.
you admired the scenery around you, the trees were decorated with little fairy lights for when it got dark and there were many gardens full of flowers as you walked along the path. you decided that this place must be busier at night.
in the distance, there was a lady walking her dog coming your way. even from afar, you could tell the dog wasn’t on a leash. shawn noticed too, hoping the dog wouldn’t run to him or else his allergies would act up.
“shawn! that dog is adorable!” you exclaimed, “i so hope it comes here.”
as if on cue, the dog runs towards you barking happily.
“hi!” you crouched down, meeting the small dog. it jumped on you multiple times, excited to see someone new. “aren’t you a cutie?”
the owner of the dog soon caught up to her runway dog, “i’m so sorry, she likes to escape sometimes. there’s usually nobody here at this time so i bring her without the leash.”
you were too busy playing with the puppy to answer, but shawn was quick to answer the elderly woman.
“oh no worries, as you can tell my girlfriend loves dogs. we don’t mind.” he said, smiling down at you and the dog.
“oh it’s very clear, she’s adorable. so what brings you to this path at this time of day? it’s normally empty.” the lady tried making small talk with shawn while you were pre occupied. he told the lady why he brought you here, speaking in a low voice so you wouldn’t hear him.
“okay girl, its time to go.” the woman called to the dog. “this cute couple needs some alone time.” she picked the dog up from your hands as it whimpered, not wanting to leave. you didn’t want it to leave either.
“bye! thanks for letting me play with your adorable dog.” you said as the lady continued in the opposite direction of the two of you.
as you walked along the path, shawn shoved his free hand in his pack pocked. sighing in relief seconds after.
“everything okay?” you asked, raising an eyebrow.
“oh what? yeah,” he said. “i was just checking to make sure i had my phone.”
you nodded, knowing fully well his phone was on the bus still, but you said nothing of it. it was probably nothing.
shawn released his grip on your hand, suddenly stopping a few feet behind you. you hadn’t noticed at first, you were to engrossed in the scenery around you.
“y/n,” he called, you barely heard him his voice was so soft. you turned around, greeted with shawn on one knew in front of you. you covered your mouth with your right hand, tears already welling up in your eyes. he grabbed your free hand quickly before beginning to talk.
“i was gonna do this tonight on stage but i couldn’t wait another minute. y/n when i first saw you at geoff’s birthday party i was left speechless because you were beyond gorgeous. i asked you out that night and lucky for me you said yes and i will never forget that. you gave me a chance and showed me beautiful things i never would’ve seen without you, when i fell in love with you it felt like magic and i want to make you feel the same now will you give me another chance but to let me show you unimaginable things this time and marry me?”
you simply nodded, not being able to form proper words or sentences right now. you held your left hand out for him to slip the beautiful ring on, as he did. both your smiles were probably the widest they have ever been.
“i love you,” you finally managed to get out, smashing your lips onto his. once you pulled away, he pulled you into him, kissing the top of your head multiple times. you stayed in his embrace for what seemed like hours until your phone started ringing.
sighing, you pulled away from shawn to check the caller ID. it was andrew, most likely looking for shawn. you put it on speaker before it connected.
“y/n where is shawn?” andrew asked, “he needs to be at the q and a in 30 minutes!”
shawn’s eyes widened, completely forgetting about the q&a.
“sorry andrew, we’ll be there. we just took a walk for a bit.”
andrew sighed, saying goodbye and hanging up the phone. you stuffed your phone into your back pocket and reconnected your hand with shawn’s.
as you walked, you admired the ring that now had a permanent place on your left hand. it was stunning, it was exactly what you wanted.
“do you like it?” shawn asked, noticing you admiring it. “if you don’t we can change it.”
“no,” you smiled, shaking your head. “it’s perfect. i love it, it’s exactly how i pictured it to be. i’m glad you didn’t wait until later to do this.”
“me too,” he smiled. “but are we gonna announce it right away?”
“well everyone on the team is going to see it, but maybe we could have a little fun with announcing it.” you smirked.
“oh yeah? like what?”
“well,” you grinned, a plan was already forming. “whoever spills about the engagement first before announcing it, owes the other person a dinner.”
“oh you’re on!” shawn exclaimed.
you arrived at the venue quicker than expected, the two of you entering through the back and finding your way to shawn’s dressing room.
“sorry i’m late!” shawn said as the two of you burst through the doors. “we got a little distracted.”
you blushed, smiling at the ground.
“i’ll say,” geoff interrupted. “y/n is that new?” he motioned to the ring shawn had placed on your finger only minutes ago.
shawn nodded, “i couldn’t wait until later, she was playing with this dog and i just had to do it.
the crew in the dressing room congratulated the two of you multiple times. you told them you weren’t announcing it right away when they tried to take videos of you for instagram and snapchat.
“i hate to break this up,” andrew interrupted. “but shawn you have to go to the q&a.”
he nodded, quickly kissing you before exiting the room with the rest of his team leaving you alone in the dressing room.
not even 10 minutes later, geoff appeared at the door, letting you know shawn wanted you to come out there. apparently the fans had asked about you.
you followed him to the small room where the q&a was being held, the room erupted in screams once you walked in.
you shyly waved, unfortunately you already forgot about the ring and you waved with your left hand.
“hey, a few of them wanted to say happy birthday.” shawn said, wrapping his arm around you as you stood next to the table where he sat.
“thank you.” you blushed, not enjoying having this much attention plus almost 100 cameras on you.
shawn picked a girl near the front to ask a question.
“this one is actually for y/n,” she said. “is that an engagement ring on your finger?”
you looked at shawn, hoping he would answer. mostly because you didn’t like to talk in front of so many people, but you also wanted a free dinner.
“it actually is,” he beamed as the crowed erupted in cheers yet again. you listened as he told them the details of what happened, so much for keeping it a secret.
“also shawn,” you butted in once he finished the story. “you told first.”
his eyes widened, “oh shit, so much for that.”
“tough luck,” you patted his chest. “you owe me a dinner babe.”
