You walked all the way home and went straight to your room before you even looked at your phone. 9 missed calls from Betty. But 0 from Jughead. Why hadn’t he called? Whatever. You knew you’d have to deal with this on Monday anyways, so you might as well enjoy the rest of the weekend.

MONDAY

You went to your locker that morning, hoping to put your stuff away and go straight to class. Unfortunately, Betty had other plans. She was waiting for you at your locker. You tried to turn and leave, but she had already seen you.

She jogged over to you. “What the heck, [Y/N]? Why didn’t you answer my texts or calls this weekend? I didn’t mean to mess things up with you and -”

“Betty, I don’t want to talk about it.” You interrupted. You were annoyed that he hadn’t bothered to contact you at all. If he actually did care, wouldn’t he have done something?

“What’s wrong?” She could tell you were upset. “Didn’t he talk to you? After you left on Friday, we had a long talk about you two.”

You were a bit surprised. Jughead had talked to Betty about it but not you? “What did he say?” You asked, biting your lip. Whatever he said could make or break your relationship.

“It’s not my place. You should ask him.” The bell rang just as she finished her sentence. “I’ll see you later.” She walked off. You sighed. You’d have to take this into your own hands.

LUNCH

You were prepared to ambush him at lunch, but he was nowhere to be found. After 10 minutes of looking for him, you gave up and went to sit with Betty, Veronica, and Archie.

Betty looked surprised as you took the seat next to her. “Why aren’t you talking to him?” She leaned over to whisper so only you would hear.

“I can’t find him anywhere.” You rolled your eyes. You just wanted to focus on your lunch and spend some time not thinking about Jughead.

Of course, that moment was when Jughead decided to show up. He sat down next to Archie, across from you. You tried to give him an angry look, but he didn’t even bother to look your way.

“What’s up, Jug?” Archie turned to greet him.

Jughead turned to Archie and began chatting, as if everything was normal. How dare he just ignore you like that? You turned to Betty, shocked and angry. She gave you an apologetic look before turning to Jughead.

“Hey, Jughead, do you want to study with me and [Y/N] tonight for the next history quiz?” She asked politely.

“Not if she’s going to be there.” He finally looked at you, but he was glaring. What was he doing? Why was he acting like nothing had ever happened?

You clenched your jaw and your fist tightened around the plastic spoon you were holding. “No, you know what? I won’t be there.” You looked at Jughead. You wished you could burn a hole with your eyes.

“Yes, you will. You’ll both be there. At my house. 6 pm.” Betty’s voice was a bit more forceful than usual.

Jughead glanced at you again, his eyes narrow and dark. You continued to clench your fist and when you opened it again, you found you had split the plastic utensil in half. You threw it on your tray. “Whatever.” You said as you stood up and walked away.

AFTER SCHOOL

You really didn’t want to go to Betty’s but you knew that if you didn’t go today, she would push you to go tomorrow and then the next day until something actually happened. Might as well get it over with.

You showed up at Betty’s house around 6. She answered the door and led you to her room, where Jughead already was. He was sitting backwards in her vanity chair. You could feel his eyes on you as you walked past him to sit on the seat in front of the window. You immediately wished you hadn’t come. You sat, folding your arms in front of your chest and keeping your gaze straight so you wouldn’t be looking at him.

Betty sat on her bed and glanced back and forth between the two of you, waiting for one of you to start a conversation. When that didn’t happen, she spoke up. “So, why don’t we start with Jughead? Isn’t there something you wanted to say to [Y/N]?” He slouched in his chair and refused to speak.

You were tired of this game. You had to start this conversation, because obviously he wasn’t going to. “Damn it, Jughead! Why can’t you just say something to me? Why didn’t you call me this weekend? And why were you being a jerk at lunch today? Does none of this matter to you?”

“Of course this means something to me, [Y/N]! I was the one who kissed you first!” He turned to you. He was very angry. “Do you know how hard it was for me to decide what to do? I’ve hated you all my life and then somehow I liked you? It makes no sense!” He stood up quickly, knocking the chair to the floor.

“Jughead, calm down. It’s okay, we’re going to work this out.” Betty said, calmly.

“Betty, why does this even concern you?” He snapped at her.

She looked up at him, shocked. You’d never seen Jughead this angry before and you bet that she hadn’t either. “Okay, Jughead. I’ll leave, but you two are going to fix this.” She sounded a bit hurt. She silently walked out of the room.

“Jughead what the hell? You just kicked Betty out of her own room!” You stood up, now as angry as he was. Being this rude to you was one thing, but being this rude to Betty? That’s where you drew the line.

Jughead sighed, rubbing a hand across his face. He seemed shocked himself at what he had just done. He instantly lowered his voice. “I know, I didn’t mean to…” He slowly sat down on the edge of the bed. You couldn’t stand to see him so upset with himself.

You walked over to him, gently sitting down so your right leg was touching his left. “It’s okay, Jughead. She just wants us to talk it over, so let’s do that.” You reached over to grab his left hand. “For Betty.” Your voice hardened a bit on those last words. You were still angry with him.

He glanced at you. You gave him a small smile, hoping to cheer up. He smiled back.

“Okay, here it all is.” He turned his gaze to the floor as he spoke. “I was still struggling with how felt about you after the party. I really liked the kiss and you seemed to, too, so I thought we might have a chance. But on Friday, when you left as soon as Betty showed up, it seemed like you were embarrassed to be seen with me. That’s also why I didn’t bother calling you. I was mean to you today because I thought that if I went back to acting how I used to act around you, maybe things would go back to normal and I would stop liking you.”

“Jughead…” You started. Your actions did sound pretty bad. You never meant to hurt him like that. “Jughead, look at me.” He looked up, looking into your eyes. You placed a hand on his cheek. His hand moved to cups yours. You loved the warmth of his hand on yours. “I didn’t mean to hurt your feelings when I left on Friday. I was confused, too. You told me that it was ‘too complicated,’ so I thought you didn’t want an actual relationship. When Betty showed up, I panicked and left because I thought you wouldn’t want anyone to know. I’m sorry if it seemed like I was embarrassed of you.”

He sighed. “I’m sorry that I was being so difficult about everything. I just wasn’t sure about what I felt or what I wanted.”

“Well do you know what you want now?”

“Yes.” He smiled. “I want you.”

You placed your other hand on his other cheek and pulled his face to yours. You pushed your lips to his. His hands moved to your waist, pulling you closer to him. Before the kiss could turn into anything deeper, you pulled away.

“Is something wrong?” Jughead asked worried.

“You need to go apologize to Betty.”

He sighed. “Yeah, I was a bit rough on her.” He stands up and heads for the door. As he opens the door, the two of you see Betty backing away from the door quickly. She flashes you a guilty smile. “Oh, have you guys worked everything out?”

“I think Betty was listening in on our conversation.” Jughead says, turning to smirk at you.

You fake gasp, making a shocked face. “Betty!” You jokingly scold her.

“Okay, maybe I was.” Betty laughed.

“Listen, Betty, I want to apologize for -” Jughead began, sounding worried.

“Don’t worry about it, Jug. I forgive you. I just wanted you guys to make up and you did, so I’m happy. Does this mean I can tell Veronica and Archie about you guys?”

“Uh, I don’t know… It might be weird given how we used to act around each other. They might tease us about it.” Jughead turned to you.

“Oh, they’ll definitely tease us. But it’s nothing we can’t handle.” You smirk at him.

THE NEXT DAY

“So does this mean you guys have been having anger sex the whole time?” Veronica asked at lunch the next day.

You sat next to Jughead, across from Veronica. Jughead looked at you with shocked eyes and a slightly red face.

“Very funny, Veronica.” You said, mockingly. You smirked and raised your eyebrows at her as if to say “yes.”

“I saw that.” Jughead said, causing everyone at the table to laugh.

I hope they don't drag BC. Until now I'm ok with the slow burn but this season something more has to happen, at least a confession. I'm not even talking as a shipper. Their relationship changes every season, they shouldn't stagnate. Rn it's obvious and if they hold them until s5, fans and casual viewers could lose interest and imo it would be too romantic. If this is about survival, put them together and then you can focus on their leadership, the end of the world and all those things

I don’t see them as dragging the relationship. I see them as pushing it to the brink until something has to happen. I see them as making Clarke and Bellamy ready.

They were building the tension until Clarke made a movie after The List, and Bellamy freaked and ran. And yet the next episode, where they were separated for most of it, served, to a large degree, to show that Clarke Griffin loved Bellamy Blake more than anyone, being willing to sacrifice her own people for him. And yet, the next episode had her with someone else? This is laughably transparent. But not to Bellamy, who goes cold with her, and has more distance between them in the following episode than at any time in the entire show, despite his fears that she had been killed and his relief that she was saved, and even despite her attempting to comfort him over troubles with his sister. And yet they end the episode apart, Clarke accidentally revealing a measure of her feelings for him while refusing to let him say good bye and admit his feelings for her. 

This leaves Clarke, separated from him, to long for love and support, and get to enjoy a few good things in life, while Bellamy, in full action mode, comes to realize that he cannot save anyone who doesn’t want to be saved nor is he responsible for everyone, which is something that has been weighing too heavily upon him. The next episode has Bellamy letting go of his responsibility and claiming something for himself, something nice, because he deserves to live, while Clarke recognizing the value of her people, love, and not incidentally Bellamy’s idea that we save who we can save right now, takes on his role of sacrificing himself for his people. 

Sorry. I don’t see the relationship stagnating. I see that they pushed it to the limits that the characters were ready to face, then separated the characters and had them individually work on those limits, making them ready for whatever happens in their relationship when they meet again. 

They’re working very hard to make sure that both Clarke and Bellamy are full, whole characters, before they get them together. They don’t need each other to fix something that is missing in themselves, they need each other because they love each other and support each other and want each other. 

It isn’t a first love fairytale romance. It isn’t the story of one person longing for the other and finally winning their reward. It isn’t the story of two hot people with instant passion who dive right in off the bat and hope it works out. It isn’t the story of being with someone because you think it’s time to be with them. It’s the story of two equals joining together because they want to. Something IS happening. Right now. It’s not stagnating, it’s growing, even when they are apart.

Alister hadn’t ever been used to real consequences to her actions. Pushing and pushing until something happened. With Wood, that was very real. She pushed him every chance she got in their relationship, and each time there was a consequence. 

Maybe it was more frequent after her incident. She didn’t feel like she could trust anyone, even the man who saved her from certain death. Now here she was, alone in her empty apartment with nothing heard but the fan next to her bed. Maybe it was the loneliness that made her grab her coat and head down to the train station for a two-way ticket to Detroit. 

As she showed up at his front door, she put out her cigarette under her heel and knocked on the door.

Crossroads

She finds her phylactery in Denerim, long after the Circle at Kinloch Hold has been dissolved. She lifts it with shaking hands. The glass is frosted and cold, an unnatural steam rising from it, and suddenly she’s nineteen again, standing in the phylactery chamber and waiting for Jowan to destroy the small, fragile vial. She inhales, the sound harsh and shaking in the silence. She only allows herself a moment; she shuts her eyes and then opens them again, needing to be fully aware for this.

“Morgana?”

Kiss meme: adoribull, 18?

[underwater kiss.  au.  i plan on doing something more with this in the future. :x]

When Dorian Pavus, renowned monstrumologist, had agree to travel across the Waking Sea to speak at a symposium on the supposed existence of the Fallow Mire wendigo, he had done so under duress.  Not a fan of sea travel, he’d been avoiding accepting the invitation for as long as possible when Lady Cassandra Pentaghast had written him herself, threatening him with bodily harm “the likes of which you cannot even begin to comprehend, Dorian, I swear” if he did not attend.

And so he’d written back, agreeing to speak—though he doubted they’d like what he had to say; the wendigo was clearly imaginary, and everyone else was delusional (what do you expect in a place with “mire” in the name, Maker preserve him).

Now he clutches the railing on the starboard side of the vessel, trying not to vomit his meager breakfast—it was all his stomach could handle—into the sea.

“You’ll get your sea legs eventually,” the captain, a woman by the name of Isabela, tells him as she walks by.  She looks him up and down out of the corner of her eye.  “Eventually.”

He frowns at her, and holds on, tries not to look down into the waves that lap against the hull.

Summary: The last thing Elliott expected when he bumped into a stranger at a coffee shop was to know who it was.Never one to question his luck, he decides it’s a sign to make things right.

Written because of this still from Frenemies, and the agreement that Elliott has a fondness for clothes Adam might wear. My mind took it strange places. Not canon compliant, despite where the still came from.

Kelly, do you have any Drew + May getting sick headcanons?

Drew doesn’t get sick easily, and when he does, he’s the type to push through it and overexert himself as if he’s fine. It can cause his sickness to build up and come back to bite him, so if people such as May or Solidad catch hints that he might be getting sick they make sure to get all “mom” on him and have him take care of himself properly. Often times he brushes aside their worries, until something happens where he’s just too sick to push on, and May scolds him and Drew stay put because he certainly didn’t mean to worry her and burden her. She insists on taking care of him despite his protests, but May doesn’t leave him much room to argue. May’s pretty on top of those sorts of things, a certain brothers of her also being rather stubborn when sick. Nevertheless, Drew appreciates her concern and care, never really having anyone take care of him much when he was sick before. It’s a little awkward to him at first, but he eases into it slowly.

May’s more prone to sickness, getting sick if she’s out in the rain too long or if she fell in a river or from eating something she shouldn’t have. She whines a lot and uses it as an excuse not to move–she likes being tended to. Of course, there are times when she’s on her own traveling that she’ll feel the need to prove she can take care of herself and insist she’s fine (particularly when certain people tell her otherwise when they see she’s getting sick, even if they’re showing genuine concern) as Drew spectates her crash and burn with an “I told you so” at the end of it all. Drew doesn’t baby May like May tends to do for him, but he makes sure she has everything she needs. If she’s being whiney and he thinks she can get up herself to get a water, though, he won’t hesitate to just tease her of how dependent she’s getting of him until she becomes flustered enough to drop the act and get up to get her own water.

Drew rarely gets sick, but once he and May start dating, May will get flustered when she gets sick and Drew usually doesn’t catch it. At first she’ll want him to stay away from her which of course he won’t, but then when he doesn’t get sick and he teases about it, she tries to be close to him more to get back at him–but it usually never works and it just means more cuddles for Drew.

So, what do you think of frosthsea's idea? I'm talking about Gray realizing his feelings until he's about to lose Juvia in a battle. I think it's highly possible to happen knowing he's confused and his dessire of keeping her safe. And also I don't think Mashima would make Gray sacrifice himself again.

I agree with frosthsea completely. It’s something I myself have mentioned before, and other prominent Gruvia bloggers have all speculated as well. 

I don’t think so much that Gray is confused as he is misguided in how he protects what he cares about. Dying for Juvia was a shock for him– because it’s exactly what all of his loved ones have done for him. They didn’t get a second chance, but he did. Now he has to figure out how to balance that, and that puts him in a position where he is between pushing her away and keeping her close. The more he pushes her away, the more he ends up drawing her back.

In Tartaros, he moves to use a magic that will end his life– and he apologizes to her, because he knows he’s going to hurt her in a way he he has been hurt before. Then he remembers Ultear, who’s sacrifice gave him another chance to keep Juvia safe, and he changes his course.

Living with her for 6 months is a testament to this. Lets remember that while he was taking missions on his own and dismissing her concerns, he still came back home to her. When Erza proposed he assist her with Avatar, he had every intention of telling Juvia where he was. It was Erza who talked him out of it in order to– get this– keep Juvia safe. And when he sees Juvia on the battlefield, his first concern isn’t that she is there but how she found him– because he made sure she couldn’t follow him, to keep her safe

Remember, Ur followed him. And she ended up dying. 

I’m sure after abandoning her for 6 months, he isn’t really sure where they stand himself. All he knows is that now he is facing off another strong enemy, and Juvia is in the middle of it. So he’s pushing her away again, because leaving her behind doesn’t seem to help.

We’ll continue to get this push-and-pull with Gruvia until something finally happens that breaks Gray. He has always been able to appear just in time to protect her, and has never had to witness her truly protecting him. Gray needs to see that someone can LIVE for him, not die for him. And he needs to have the fear of having lost/losing Juvia in his mind before he can truly release how he feels. Gray will push her away until both of those things happen, because he is misguided in believing that is how he keeps her safe. 

It’s a defense mechanism. One that I am dying to see played out already. I love me some angst. :)
