can you imagine nct as teens in the 80′s riding bikes down the street like neighborhood kids, playing with ouija boards in cemeteries at midnight, buying soda glasses with a few coins and chilling under the shade of a big oak tree, flashing the light from flashlights into each others’ windows to wake up in the middle of the night, dirty scuffed up sneakers and taking trips down to the lake for a dip in the summer
When El finally comes home, Mike is eager to get her a supercom of her own so they can constantly keep in touch, even when Nancy is on the phone with Steve or Jonathan for hours on end or his father is on a business call.
He bikes to Radio Shack one afternoon following school and picks out the newest model, his saved up allowance just enough to afford it. With the little money he has left over, Mike figures he’ll buy El her favourite chocolate bar from the General Store next door. But, once he’s there, Kit-Kat in hand, he notices something even more perfect to add to her present.
That evening, while she’s over for dinner, El is thrilled to unwrap her new radio and test it out—Mike bounding to the basement and speaking to her through the small black box in her hand. She’s excited all over again when Mike presents her a package of sparkly pink stickers. So you can decorate it, Mike says, And make it your own.

In which Marco is the worst vampire ever. Just. The Worst.
Following many jokes on twitter about Marco the vampire who is mentally stuck in the fifties and kind of grossed out by the concept of biting people…I found my self doing this in an attempt to break my writers block. It’s choppy and awkwardly paced and kind of generic, but hey, it’s complete and about 5000 words, and hopefully having something out there in the world will make working on commissions a little less like pulling teeth. Here ya go guys! Enjooyy.
God what a dork.
(Mild content warning, a little blood and sooort of blood play, I guess? He’s a vampire, you know what you’re getting in to)
