I’ve been noticing a sudden burst in red and blue girl/girl (or nb/nb) ships, so I made this handy guide to help people sort them out!

Not to be confused with their close cousin, the PinkxDarkish-purple girl/girl ship.

(for those who don’t recongize any, it’s Ruby/Sapphire from Steven Universe, Korra/Asami from Legend of Korra, Kyouko/Sayaka from Madoka Magica, and Groundon/Kyogre from Pokemon)

themusicalbookworm  asked:

“I’m sorry I yelled at you…”  Shiro started awkwardly, walking next to Lance through the castle halls.  


“It’s whatever man.”  Lance brushed off with none of his usual carefree tone.  


“It’s not.”  Shiro shook his head.  “You had a point when you said Keith was too hotheaded to go.  I should have listened to you.”


“See, it’s all well and good that you’re saying that Shiro, but I mean it’s not like you’re actually going to listen to me next time either so it’s whatever.”  Lance stated, glaring at the ground.  Shiro frowned.  He was trying to apologize, why was Lance making it so hard?


“What do you mean?”  He prompted.


“I mean you never listen to me.”  Lance huffed, hands coming up to gesture as he stopped walking and turned to face Shiro.  “Or Hunk.  You treat Hunk and me like some side characters while Pidge and Keith are the main event, who need your every second of attention and could do no wrong.”  He snapped.  “And I don’t think that’s about to change tomorrow so you’re apology is a big fat whatever to me right now Shiro.”  The Blue Paladin quickly turned away, storming into his room and leaving behind a confused Shiro.

The Petco Employees Recongize Me

This is so embarassing. My fish hobby is too out of control. Walked into my local Petco yesterday to buy some sand and silk plants to rescape my 20. The guy at the counter went “Welcome to Petco-oh…”

They probably think I’m some crazy fish lady. I can never show my face there again…

EXO reaction #1- Encountering Your Ex at a Party (ot9)

Minseok

 It was a new years party and you and your boyfriend Minseok were invited.  It was both of you guys’ understanding that it was going to be a small gathering with some close friends and that was it.  So you can imagine your shock when you received a tap on the shoulder and you turned around to be met with your ex.  

 “Hey, (Y/n)!  Long time no see.”

 “Uh…yeah….”  You answered awkwardly.  You and your ex weren’t exactly on good terms.  You two were just way too different.  And there was still some things about your past relationship that rubbed you the wrong way when it came to him.

 “So, I gotta ask, what is it like to be with a rich Kpop idol?  I’m sure your living the life, huh?”  Your ex asked with a undertone of fakeness as they smiled with that overly-cheesy grin on their face.

 “Um…E-excuse m-”

 “It’s great actually!  Thanks for asking!”  A sweet voice suddenly sounded beside you as a comforting arm wrapped around your shoulder.  

“Yah, don’t let them ruin this party for you jagi.”

Suho

  You were feeling good.  You looked great, your favorite man in the word was standing right next to you and all your friends surrounded you at this amazing party.  Nothing can get you down, right?  Wrong.  As you were heading to get you and your man a refill on your drinks, you suddenly bumped into someone who was all too familiar to you.  “Is that you (Y/n)?”  You chuckled awkwardly as you looked up at you ex who your relationship ended less than perfectly with.    “Yeah, um…How’s it going?”  you asked politely even though you didn’t really like the idea of having a full-blown conversation with them.  “Well, it’s been pretty okay I suppose.  Kinda lonely.  You look good though, really good.” They finished as their eyes looked up and down your figure while biting their lips.  Ugh, they were checking you out.“Hey jagi, what’s been taking so long?”

 Suho appeared beside you with a kind yet charming smile upon his face.  He then viewed you ex up and down and was able to realize the awkward atmosphere.  “And who might you be?”  Your boyfriend asked with a forceful nice tone.

 Intimidated, you ex just mumbled something about being an old friend before bowing and leaving the party all together.   

 “Aish, I can’t believe you dated such a weirdo.”

Lay

  It was just a small gathering in a form of a bonfire.  You had told Lay that it was okay if he wanted to stay home and just rest (you always thought he worked himself too hard anyway.) but your sweet boyfriend just insisted that he wanted to hang out with you and your friends.  So that was the story of how you ended up sitting around a fire, with your very own boyfriend neglecting you as he excitedly chatted to a guy about some sport you could care less about.

  Now you didn’t like being called clingy, but you also didn’t like your boyfriend ignoring you for about half an hour now when he just got back from China. 

  You sighed to yourself as you continued to roast your marshmellow.

  “Oh my god, I knew you looked familiar.  How you doing, (y/n)?”  A excited voice called out to you.  

  You looked up and saw your ex from three years ago.  Although you romantic relationship didn’t end up successful, you both agreed to remain good friends who could always trust each other.

  Soon a long conversation began and you soon forgot all about Lay and your earlier frustrations.  

  “Love, I’ve been looking for you for almost fifteen minutes now.  Where have you been?”  Lay asked as he approached you and your ex.

  “Sorry babe, I just saw my ex and we moved over here to catch up.”  You answered sweetly.

  Lay’s head tilted.

  “Ex?”  he asked.  You bursted out laughing as you explained how you two remained good friends since childhood.  To this, he seemingly calmed down but still made a point to pull you closer and kiss your cheek in front of your ex every two minutes or so.

“I really can’t let you out of my sight, huh?”

Baekhyun

  SM was putting together a party for their employees.  Being Baekhyun’s partner for a while now, your puppy-like boyfriend had no problem bringing you along as a date.  However what you didn’t know was that your ex was recently employed at the company as a manager of sorts and was actually attending the same party as you.  

  “Hey, do you mind if I step out for minute?”  You asked your boyfriend.  There was just so many people and you wanted to get some fresh air.

  “Yeah, sure.  You okay?”  Baekhyun asked.  You nodded and quickly excused yourself.  

  You were out, enjoying the fresh but chill air of Spring when you heard a voice sound behind you.

  “So that’s who you left me for:?  A kpop idol?”  A chill rang down you spine as you recongized the voice as you ex.

  To your displeasure, he continued to talk.

  “I thought you had more self-respect than some girly lip syncer who wears more makeup than you do.”  The harsh words caused the hurt that was intended.  

  “Or, maybe she just wanted a boyfriend who didn’t cheat on her?”  an angel’s voice joined in.  You finally turned around and met the sight of both your ex and current boyfriend.  

  “I never cheated!”  You ex exclaimed.  

  “Yeah, it must have been your evil twin who she walked in on with another woman.”  you boyfriend replied sassily while joining your side.  

  Fed up, your ex left the party and left you and your boyfriend alone on the balcony.

“The nerve of that guy.  Does he know how many times I had to comfort you after you guys broke up?”  



Chen

Being a social person, you usually loved parties.  That was until you saw your ex across the room.  

You gasped slightly and dropped to the floor in a army crawl to reach you boyfriend without having to be detected by the enemy.

  Chen was talking to an old friend of his when he suddenly felt a tug on his ankle.  He looked down and saw you on the floor desperately trying to get his attention.  

  “I’m going to skip ‘what?’ and just go straight to ‘why’?”  Chen told you.

  “Listen, drop down to a crawl right now.  Our position’s been compromised.”  You whisper yellled, ignoring the weird looks from fellow party goers.  

  “What the hell does that even mean?”  Chen asked while trying to kick you off his leg.

  “Oppa, my ex is here.”   And with that he stopped.

  “Your ex?  Which one?”

  “(Y/E/N).”  

Chen’s eyes got all wide.  

  “The annoying one?”  he asked.  You nodded.  It wasn’t that your ex was mean or anything.  But every time he saw you, he would approach you with a long conversation about literally the most boring things ever.  Chen has once witnessed this at the grocery store and has too been extra careful to avoid the overly- friendly person.

  You and Chen both left the party in a over dramatic army crawl.  

  “Yah, we’re gonna be known as the weird couple among our friends.  How do we explain why we are crawling out of the party?”

Chanyeol

  You trusted Chanyeol with every thing, and that included your past.  He knew about your ex and your guys’ less than perfect relationship.  He knew that your ex used to hit you and comforted you many times about it.  Because of this, Chanyeol was always sure to treat you as if you were made of glass, because he didn’t want to cause any further damage to such a gorgeous person.  

  Chanyeol was getting you a refill on your drink when he suddenly picked up on a conversation that was happening just a few feet from him.    

  “Hey, when will (Y/E/N) be here?”

   “They said they were on their way.”

  His blood ran cold.  He knew that name.  And not for good reasons either.  

  Forgetting the drink, Chanyeol searched you out and made an excuse about a family emergency to get you to leave with him.  He didn’t really want to tell you what he heard, he just wanted to get you out.  

  You two were in the car when you suddenly opened the door and made an attempt to get out.

  “Where you going?”  Chanyeol asked.

  “I forgot my phone up there.”  You replied, not seeing what the big deal was about going up and getting it real quick.

  “I’ll get it.”  Chanyeol said before pushing you back in and going back upstairs to the party.  

  He just found your phone on the coffee table and was about to leave when he was interupted.  

  “Hey, you (y/ns)’s boyfriend?”  

  “Yes, and who are you?”  

  “(Y/e/n).  I must say I didn’t think they would ever fall for some girly kpop idol.”

“I’m twice the man you will ever be.  A man doesn’t beat the one’s they love.  A man doesn’t treat their partner as if they’re anything other than perfect.  A real man puts food on the table and loves their partner unconditionally.”


The other exo member’s reactions will be posted shortly.

SO ANOTHER (voltron) THING

THEY HAVE AN IDENITY SCAN

LIKE

THE CASTLE SCANS THEM AND THEN DECIDES TO AWAKEN THE CASTLE SO CLEARLY IT RECONGIZES SOMEONE IN THE GROUP

EITHER ONE OF THEM (lance) IS ALTEAN OR ONE OF THEM IS RELATED/IS A KNOWN PALADIN AND THATS WHY THE CASTLES CALL WITH THEM JUST CRUISING ON IN

Yes, Hannibal has relentlessly fostered violence in Will, but I will tell you the honest truth and that is that is when Hannibal sees his beautiful, brilliant, brutal boy embrace the aspects of his nature which Hannibal feels shine most brightly and nonetheless maintain his capacity for gentle kindness, Hannibal recongizes that he has built better than he knew and the joy that brings him is immeasurable.

Hannibal’s heart races with excitement when Will displays the sharpness of his teeth but it aches when Will is kind towards some small thing to which there was no requirement that he be kind, and when Will is gentle with him Hannibal absolutely melts.

So I’ll just come right out and say it, because no one in the Ichihime fandom seems to be stepping up to the plate.


Whoever it is that feels the need to spam Ichiruki fans with the same asks needs to check themselves. Think real long and hard about what kind of person you are, maybe even try think about what you’re saying in the first place. It’s immature, and only makes you (and the rest of the fandom by reflection) look like a fucking moron. While I’ll admit part of me would like to think “Well, we have had IR fans pose as IH fans and do stuff like this in the past”, another part of me recongizes that both sides of the Bleach fandom has some pretty shit people in it. So it’s not outside the realm.


So, get your 12 year old ass off of Tumblr for a few weeks, go drink your apple juice in a corner, and come back when you’ve grown up. That goes for everyone who has ever done something so petty and stupid. On BOTH sides.


I’m done with the “fandom war” bullshit. EVERYONE is. All its done is ruin Bleach as a whole, and stop people from wanting to join the fandom entirely.


In the end, we all should have stepped up and stopped this sort of behavior. Maybe we would have gotten a more complete ending. Maybe the anime would have come back. Maybe Kubo wouldn’t have felt so shitty regarding something he put 15 years of his life into.


It’s a year late, but how about we all stop bitching and use our heads. Get along even if you gotta grit your teeth. Show that we DESERVE the data books, the movies, and the Anime we all (or most of us) want so badly.

Summary: You were beautiful, kind, and just perfect for him. Only problem was you were his best friend’s girlfriend.

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Jin sat down on the chair as he grabbed his phone, he texted your number in hopes of you answering him. Unfortunately, you were one step ahead as you had already disconnected your phone.

Jin sighed as he put his hands on his face, tears streaming down his face as he realized that you had not felt the same way for him. It was obvious when you didn’t even reply to his confession. And if it wasn’t obvious then, you leaving was. It was too soon. And now, his opportunity with you had all but diminished.

Jin swipes the glass of water off his table as he cursed.

“I’m a fucking idiot.” He muttered under his breath, “I shouldn’t have said anything… I shouldn’t have opened that fucking door.” Jin sobbed out.

As Jin cursed internally, he heard the faint sounds of someone knocking on his door. Jin’s heart soared as hope swelled within the depths of his chest. He rose up from his seat and ran towards the door, he swings it open and yelled, “Y/N!?”

But to his disappointment, it was Namjoon.

Jin grit his teeth at the sight of his best friend, he still loved Namjoon despite the damage he had unknowingly cost, but right now he couldn’t stand the sight of him.

“Y/N? Did she come by? Is she here? Where is she? Why would she be here?!” Namjoon asked, as anger rose at the last question.

“She left…” Jin muttered out.

“Where did she go?” Namjoon asked.

“I don’t know, but all I know is she’s not in Korea anymore.”

Jin practically thrusts the letter to Namjoon.

Namjoon fell on the ground from shock and exhaustion. Shock from the news that you had left Korea for good, and exhaustion from staying up all night worrying and crying over you.

Namjoon felt tears drip down his face, making Jin roll his eyes.

“Why are you crying? She’s the one suffering. Beside, if I don’t recall you wanted to break up with her in the first place.” Jin spits out.

Namjoon rose to his feet angrily and yanked Jin’s collar, “Why are you getting mad at me? She’s my girlfriend not yours!”

“Well, I fucking love her more than you and she deserved better than a cheating asshole!” Jin’s voice rings throughout the room. Namjoon’s lips parted from shock as his grip on Jin’s collar loosen, Jin gently pulls it away.

“W-what?”

“You heard me, now leave. I don’t want to look at you right now.”

“For how long?” Namjoon asked in a grim voice.

“Who cares? She’s gone now and it’s all your fault.” Jin muttered under his breath.

Namjoon backs away as Jin’s harsh words stabbed his heart. Jin only continued to lash out on his friend.

“If you didn’t want to be with her, why cheat? Why make her suffer, you bastard?” Jin sobbed out.

Namjoon’s shoulders tremble as the sorrow was getting too much for him, “I don’t know… I took her for granted.”

“Damn right, you did. I would’ve never let her go, if I were you.”

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

After Jin had basically thrown Namjoon out of his apartment, Jin sat down on the couch thinking about where you could’ve gone.

America? She always did wanted to go to New York and Los Angeles.

What if she’s not in America? Jin huffed out in frustration.

Where could’ve she gone?

Mexico? Sweden? Canada? Japan? Norway? Germany?

“Where could’ve she gone?” Jin yelled out, in frustartion.

Jin wanted so badly to find you, but he knew that the world was too big and you were too far away.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Two Years Later…

Y/N took a deep breath as she finally steps out of the crowded airplane. She stretched her limbs out before going inside the airport to receive her luggage.

It’s been two years since Y/N ran away from the shitstorm she was caught in.

Namjoon broke her heart and Jin, her best friend, confessed to her.

Y/n always regret not making things right with the both, and at one point she thought of returning to Korea to fix things up, but decided three months was too long for her to try to mend things.

It’s been two years since I last saw them, what’s the point of  trying to mend things anyways? I’ll probably never see them again. She thought as she rides the taxi to her friend’s home.

She was moving in with Yugyeom, her old college friend and the only person she kept in contact with from Korea. Y/N smiled at the sight of him standing in front of the building when she got out.

And as she steps out the cab, he literally knocks her off her feet by grabbing her by the waist and swinging her around happily.

“It’s so good to see you!” Yugyeom cheered.

“I know right! And oh my god, you got muscles now!” Y/n grabs his biceps, making Yugyeom blush.

“Thanks, my friend and I have been hitting the gym a lot lately. Speaking about him, I want you to meet him tomorrow night.” Yugyeom smiled.

“Tomorrow night?”

His smile fell at the sight of Y/n’s sudden change of mood.

“I think it would be nice, if you made new friends.” Yugyeom said sweetly.

He gave you puppy dog eyes that made you melt so of course naturally you said, “Okay.”

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

You didn’t know what possessed you to wear a sexy tight, black dress that hugged your curves and lifted your boobs; but here you were sitting next to Yugyeom at some dark club.

“You need to find a boyfriend so that’s why I took you here.” Yugyeom said with a shit-eating grin.

You only roll your eyes at him as you took a sip of your drink. Your eyes searched the club, before Yugyeom jumps up from his seat, jolting you back to reality.

“Jungkook!” He shouted. You froze at the sound of the younger man’s name.

Jeon Jungkook was a freshman when you last saw him and a friend of Jin and Namjoon. So, if he’s here…

“Namjoon and Jin came here today with their girlfriends so don’t hit on them like last time!” Jungkook teased Yugyeom, who only rolled his eyes.

“I didn’t know they were dating!” He argued back. You froze and tried to think of a way to escape, but it was too late you felt two pair of eyes staring deep into your soul. You look up to see Jin and Namjoon walking towards your table.

You felt yourself have an internal breakdown as you tried to make yourself small, but you stood out. Sighing, as you realize there’s no point of hiding, you take a large gulp of your drink. You hoped that if you get drunk enough to pass out they wouldn’t ask you questions.

Maybe they don’t recongize me? Or maybe they don’t care anymore? Either way, I’ll play dumb.

Jin and his girlfriend sat near you, making you shift away uncomfortably. You tried to ignore Jin’s piercing gaze and Namjoon’s gaping mouth along with his glaring girlfriend, but it wasn’t easy when you could practically feel their anger and confusion radiate off of them.

So much for not recongizing me.

Yugyeom smiled and holds you by the  waist as he proudly introduces you,  "Hey, Jungkook! This is my best friend, Y/N! I met her in college!“

Jungkook’s mouth fell open at the sight of you and you bit your lip nervously.

Before Jungkook can speak, you stood up quickly.

If they recongize you, then there’s only one way to escape… Running away.

"I just remember I had to do something for work real quick!”

Yugyeom frowned.

“You’re being rude, Y/n.”

You shake your head, “Sorry, but I have to go somewhere real quick!”

As you were about to leave the table, someone grabbed your arm. You look up to see Namjoon.

“Aren’t you being too harsh to your old friends, Y/n?” Namjoon said with a coy smirk.

You sighed, “I guess you’re right. I just didn’t want to meet you guys like this.” Trying to play along with Namjoon.

“Well, then how would you like to meet us? Not at all, right?” Jin asked, bitterly.

You swallowed nervously and Yugyeom felt the tension in the air as he looked at his friends and at you. Namjoon lets go to your relief as he noticed his girlfriend’s heated look.

“I don’t want to bore you guys with my past and stories, so I best get going home.” You said, as you tried to escape once more, but this time it was Jin’s grip on your arm.

“No, we really want to hear what you did after you abandoned your friends.” Jin said, with slight venom in his voice.

Yugyeom got up slowly and pulled you away from Jin. He grabs you by the waist again and whispered into your ear, “Is he  the one who broke your heart?” Yugyeom points towards Namjoon, you nodded.

Yugyeom felt daggers on the side of his head and as he slightly cocked his head to the right, he sees Jin glaring at him and at  the way Yugyeom was too close to him.

“And is that the man who’s in love with you?”

“Used to be.”

“No, I think he still does.”

You felt your heart skip a beat as Yugyeom whispered the last words in your ear.

“But, it’s been two years… How can someone still be in love with a person who has never returned their feelings?”

Yugyeom scoffed, “You’ll be surprised.”

“And besides, he has a girlfriend.” You whispered back.

“So?” You felt anger surge through you as you smacked his arm, making him wince.

“Never take love lightly.”

He only rolled his eyes, dimissing your words, he said, “Well, either way you need to fix the mess the three of you have, otherwise no one will be able to move on.”

You rolled your eyes as you grabbed your purse, “Whatever, I’m leaving.” And with that you left, and this time no one stopped you.

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

It’s been a week since you reunited with the two men and you thought you were very lucky to not have run into them anymore. However, you jinxed yourself when you see Jungkook and Namjoon walk inside your apartment. You almost dropped the glass of water you were drinking when you saw Namjoon standing in front of you.

Your eyes widen at the sight of your cheating ex-boyfriend in front you.

You thought that seeing Namjoon this close to you would make you angry and wrathful even. But, it’s been two years and the feelings of betrayal and hurt had died a long time ago. That didn’t certianly mean you forgave him, but rather that you decided to let go of the negative emotions.

Namjoon stepped closer to you quietly and sat down on a chair near your side. He stared at you for the longest time and you avoided his stare, not knowing what to do.

You thought you were going to die from the painful silence until Namjoon spoke up, “I’m sorry.”

You stared at him as you see his dark brown eyes staring back at you, they were remorseful and sad- it was almost like looking at a lost soul. You sighed and stared at the white wall that hung a picture of you and Yugyeom.

“For what Namjoon?

"For not being a good boyfriend.”

“It was two years ago, Namjoon. Don’t worry about it.”

“But, still… I broke your trust and your heart.”

You chuckled bitterly, surprised that old feelings were starting to resurface.

“Don’t bother, Namjoon. I’ll forget anything that happen between us but I won’t forgive you. Besides, what’s the point of apologizing to me?”

“I was hoping we could be friends…” Namjoon spoke quietly.

Your lips parted as you stared at Namjoon in shock and he only stared at you with determination.

“Why?”

“Why what?”

“Why do you want to be friends?”

“I enjoyed your company and I like you as a person.” Namjoon spoke quietly.

You kept silent as thoughts poured through your mind and you started to shake your head, “Your girlfriend might not like us hanging out together with our past and stuff. Let’s just go our separate ways, Namjoon.”

“I can’t.”

“Why not? It was easy for me.” Your eyes widen from the harshness of your own wordings and even Namjoon swallowed painfully as he got up from his seat. He walked towards you and you felt yourself shrink from his intimidating height.

“I can’t go our separate ways because I still love you after all these years.” He was near you by then. His large hands laid on your hips, rubbing them up and down slightly as his forhead rested on yours. You only stared at the ground, tears hitting the floor.

“I don’t love her, I love you.” He said, you felt his breath hit your lips and it was at that moment you snapped back to reality. You put your hand on his chest, pushing him away from you and his hands fell from your hips.

“No.”

Namjoon bit his lips nervously as your fists ball up.

“Never again.”

“Just give me one more chance.”

“No, Kim Namjoon.”

Namjoon stiffened at the sound of you saying his full name.

“I can’t and I won’t. You have a girlfriend so cherish and love her right, so you don’t make the same mistake!” Namjoon sighed.

“I love you not her.”

“I don’t care. You can’t do this to me and I won’t let you. You had your chance and you blew it so please respect my choice and move on. Besides, I don’t love you anymore.”

“Then, why are you crying?”

You froze and as your fingertips touched your tears, you felt angry that he still affected you in some way. You didn’t love him anymore, but it still hurts to have this conversation with him.

The conversation you should have a long time ago.

Closure.

You took a shaky breath and tried to keep your voice stable.

“I’m crying because I want to move on from the past, but you won’t let me! It’s so frustrating. I just want us to go our separate ways and if not, at least move on from the past!”

Your eyes were casted on the ground as you spoke quietly, “I’m sorry, Namjoon. I can’t and won’t go back to you so please move on and live a happy life with your girlfriend.”

Namjoon stared at you for the longest time as he sits down on the chair. He clutched his hands together as he felt the aching in his chest get stronger. He tries to swallow the pain as he looks into your eyes with his own tearful ones. He swallows the painful lump in his throat as he forced himself to stay strong for what was about to happen next.

“You’re right.” He said with a sad smile.

“I got to own up to my mistakes, but it’s going to be so hard… Y/N, you were the best part of me.”

Namjoon held your hand and you allowed him.

This was his Goodbye.

You teared up as Namjoon held your hand tightly, desparate to never let go. Namjoon allows himself to cherish your small, and soft hand for the last time. The hand that had reached out to him and saved him, the hand that he smacked away in the end. He smiled down at the hand that had meant so much to him and the one that he must let go, in order for you to be happy.

He loves you, but your happiness was more important to him so if he had to let you go, then he must say goodbye properly at least.

“Thank you for being there for me when we were together. For loving me and for being yourself. I’m sorry I let this happen to us.”

You smiled, tearfully. The boulder that had been weighting down your shoulders from the unspoken words the two of you spoke was finally lifted. You felt light like a feather and as you stared into Kim Namjoon’s beautiful eyes again, you said, “Goodbye, Joonie.”

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Namjoon didn’t take the rejection to heart, but the both of you had managed to move on peacefully without argument and resentment. An improval from the last past two years. He hugged you one last time before walking out of your life. You felt relieved yet sad to see him go and as you sat down next to Yugyeom and Jungkook, they placed their arms around your shoulder.

“One down, one more to go.”  You raised an eyebrow.

“You thought Namjoon coming in here was a coincidence? You wrong, baby. This is your time to make up for lost time and your path to moving on.”

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

You didn’t know why but you were more nervous to see Jin, then Namjoon. Maybe because at one point, you were actually developing feelings for the man, but you always pushed them back because of Namjoon. Or it could be the fact that you had abandoned him when he confessed to you.

You didn’t know how to face the man who helped you the most during your worst parts of your life, the one who held you when Namjoon stepped on your heart, and the one who came to your defense whenver Namjoon picked fights with you. Either way, Jin was someone important to you and his feelings were just as equally important to you.

But, your biggest regret was that you took his feelings lightly and ripped his heart apart. You wouldn’t be surprised if Jin didn’t forgive you and you felt your heart ache at the thought of it.

You wouldn’t be surprised if Jin told you off and left your life for good. And the thought of it pained you so much, but you couldn’t play victim when that was exactly what you have done to him.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

“I don’t want to do this.” You whined, as you fiddle with your hands.

“Well, Jin already agreed to it so don’t ditch him again.” Jungkook said, annoyed.

You cringed at his harsh words,  but couldn’t agree more with Jungkook.

You have made him wait too long for answers.

He deserves to know why you left and why you hadn’t replied to his confession.
……..

You sat nervously on the stool as you waited for Jin. You bit your lip nervously as time passes.

He was ten minutes late, maybe he was getting back at you for leaving him. You wouldn’t blame him if he did.

You sighed, as you ordered a drink.

If he’s not coming, I might as well drink something at the bar.

As you were at your second glass, the doors open and you look up to see Jin.

You swallowed harshly at the sight of the handsome man. His hair was light brown, with side bangs above his eye. He was wearing a long, brown coat with a black sweater underneath with tight black ripped jeans.  He looked very handsome. It was almost like he was that ex who’s trying to show you what you’re missing out on.

You shake your head quickly before looking around him to see if Yugyeom or Jungkook had came with him, but to your dismay they had not. You felt nervous as Jin looked around the room for you and as he finally meets your eye, your heart skips a beat. It was as though time has frozen and you can’t move, and only Jin was the moving force of this time illusion.

You finally break eye contact as the bartender hands you the third drink, you quickly turn around to take quick sips to calm your frantic beating heart. Jin finally sits down next to you without a single greeting, the only thing you hear from him is a rough, “I would like some soju, please.”

As Jin was looking at you, you stared at your thighs, you were too ashamed to look him in the eyes. Guilt burned away at the pit of your stomach as if it were acid. You felt ashamed for abandoning your best friend especially when he had confessed to you.

“Y/n.” Jin’s voice was quiet, yet it felt as though he seemed to talk over the whole club as he spoke your name. You froze and as you finally raised your head, you met his blank stare.

You swallowed nervously as you felt your chest tighten from his cold behavior towards you. What were you expecting? For him to forgive you on the spot?

“How are you?” He asked, all of the sudden. His smile was warm, making you feel unsettled.

“I’m doing fine, and you?”

“Good. I see you met my girlfriend,  Ara, the other night.”

You felt something dark in your heart twitch, “She’s really pretty, how long have you two been dating?”

“A year.” Jin spoke softly with a small smile.

“She’s amazing and I would like you to meet her tomorrow for dinner with the boys.”

You froze and stared at Jin, in shock. Why would he invite you, of all people, to meet his girlfriend?

And it was after catching a mischievous glint in his eyes that you realized something.

He wanted to get back at you by showing you that he was no longer in love with you.

You shouldn’t care because before you left two years ago, your feelings for him wasn’t that strong. But here you were, gritting your teeth as you forced yourself to pretend that it didn’t bother you.

You hated the fact that his stupid plan was working. His plan to show you that he was better off without you, after all.

You pushed all angry and confused thoughts off your mind as you stare deep into his chestnut brown eyes.

You forced a smile on your face, “I would love too.”

Jin smiled at you and after he paid the bartender, he turned to you and said goodbye.

You sat in the stool, frozen.

Jin had just confused the hell out of you. Instead of lashing out on you or demanding for explanations, he simply acted as if you had never left in the first place or practically ignored his feelings. Instead, he invited you to what is supposed to be a pleasant dinner, but you knew better. You sighed as you rubbed your eyes.

Maybe I’m overreacting? But why didn’t he ask why I left?

Maybe he understood what I going through or maybe he just doesn’t care.

As you took a sip of your drink, you chuckled.

The world doesn’t revolve around me.
For all I know, this is his way of forgiving me or moving on.

Either way, tomorrow you were going to find out.

……………………………………………………………………..

You wore a white blouse and a black skirt with black pump heels. You had on minimal makeup.

You frowned at the mirror. You look like you work at a office and as Jungkook walked by, he smirked, “You look sexy.” And then Yugyeom appears in the view of the mirror with a chuckle, “You look like you’re dressed for a funeral.”

“Fuck off, Yugyeom.”

“Just saying.”

You rolled your eyes and grabbed your purse, ignoring Yugyeom.

“If hyung doesn’t date you, I will take you out on a date myself.” Jungkook said, sweetly.

“Jungkook, he has a girlfriend so I’ll say yes to that date!” You teased.

Jungkook chuckles, “I don’t know about that.”

Before you can ask what he meant, Yugyeom pulls you by the arm, “Stop talking and let’s go, we’re gonna be late!”

……………………………………………………….

The restaurant was elegant yet casual, the purpose was for no one to feel too uncomfortable or pay too much for the food. It was just perfect.

“Y/N, sit next to me!” Jungkook whined as he pulled you down with him. Your eyes widen from his sudden clingness, not that you were complaining because Jungkook was incredibly handsome.

You felt eyes on you and you look up to see Namjoon sitting next to his girlfriend, he smiled sweetly at you to which you return.

“Y/N.” You hear the soft voice again, the one that makes your heart flutter.

You turn around to see Jin standing next to his tall and beautfiul girlfriend.

Shit, she’s so pretty my own heart is fluttering at the sight of her.

As you were admiring Jin’s girlfriend, he was admiring you.

He admired the way your legs looked in the black skirt, showing off your thighs and calves, and the way your white blouse shaped your breasts and hugged your cute waist.  Your makeup was light, but it showed off your beauty, making your lips desirable and eyes bright. Your hair was styled neatly to show off your facial features. He was smitten by your beauty, he gaped at you before his girlfriend, Ara, grabbed his arm.

“We met a year ago at the cafe!”

Y/n smiled brightly at his girlfriend’s chatter, his heart ached as it seemed you were not affected by him dating.

You on the other hand, was incredibly jealous of Ara, she had won Jin’s heart. A man with a heart of gold.

You never admitted it to Jin, but he was perfect in your eyes. Even if he was your best friend, you always believed him to be your ideal man, but of course you never said that for you were dating Namjoon at the time.

Jin is a kind, patient, loving man. A man who was not afraid to be himself. Something you always found attractive in a man. You felt your heart tug as Ara recounts the tale on how Jin had bought her coffee and took her out on a date soon afterwards.

You stared at Jin, who was smiling at his girlfriend cutely.

You felt your stomach sink as you noticed that he was looking at her the same way he used to look at you. You bit your lip as you came to a haunting realization.

You felt like such a fool.

What sucks about life is you don’t realize or feel so deeply for something until it was too late.

You had taken Jin for granted and his love. You had fallen for him and that was probably why you had hoped for Namjoon to dump you once upon a time ago. Everything made sense now, but what was the point? If he’s with someone else now.

You took a deep breath, as you tried to not to stare at him longingly. To distract yourself from the pain, your eyes shifted around the table.

You see Jungkook arguing with Jimin and Taehyung, Yoongi eating his food, Hoseok telling jokes to Namjoon, who was laughing his ass off. You were surprised he even showed up, but then again just because the both of you are no longer together in any way, doesn’t mean he can’t hang out with his friends either. Ypu stared at his pretty girlfriend, who was texting someone.

You then shift your eyes to Yugyeom, who was on his phone, texting boredly next to you. Ara stopped talking as Jin catches her attention.

“You’re so cute, Ara!” Jin says as he grabs his girlfriend’s cheeks, you only roll your eyes as the couple get lovey dovey.

“Hey.” You hear a whisper, you turn around to see Yugyeom smirking eviliy.

“He’s trying to make you jealous.”

“Yeah, right.” You mumbled, as you drink your beer.

“Two can play at that game.”

“What are you even t-? Ah!” You squeak, as Yugyeom quickly nuzzles his face on your neck, making you giggle.

“Yugyeom, stop! You know that’s my weak spot.” You chuckled out, oblivious by the pairs of eyes on you.

“I’ll only stop if you kiss me!” Yugyeom teased you.

Your cheeks redden as he stared at you playfully.

You were about to respond when someone cleared their throat, you see Jungkook glaring at you both as he directed his gaze at an annoyed Jin and Namjoon, both then turned around when you catch their stares. Yugyeom only shrugs as he hugs your waist. He whispered in your ear, “Jin seems occupied with Ara, but it seems like he didn’t care about you leaving and Namjoon has already cleared up things with you so how about we go home?”

You stared at Yugyeom and at the boys at your table who were doing their own thing. Jin was talking to his girlfriend and as you turned around to see Yugyeom, you fail to notice Jin peering over Ara to stare at you.

The dinner was boring, no one was talking to you both, and the food is taking forever. You whispered in Yugyeom’s ear, “What will I get if I leave with you?”

“We’ll get pizza and watch Netflix all fucking day.” He smirks, the boy knew you could never turn down these offers.

“Sounds lit, let’s do it.” You grabbed your purse, catching Jungkook’s and Jin’s attention.

“Sorry, guys. I have to leave for something important with Yugyeom.”

Yugyeom grins like a little kid as he grabbed your arm, “Yeah, we got work to do.” He winks at you and you giggle. Just as you both were about to leave, a voice halts you, “At least wait for dinner to arrive.” You turn around to see Jin narrowing his eyes at you.

“We’ll have dinner at home, don’t worry about us.”

“This is our reunion party, and you’re our guest of honor so don’t try to ditch us again like two years ago.”

The room fell silent as Jin’s low blow hit home. Yugyeom’s grip on your arm tighten and as he was about to say something, but you cover his mouth.

“Fine.”

Yugyeom sighed, but sits down next to you boredly.

It seemed like years when dinner finally did arrived and as you all ate, you felt eyes on you.

Jin kept serving you heated looks, and that’s when you realized he was not in fact over what you have done to him.

………………………………………………………………………………

After dinner,  Yugyeom and you fell on the couch. As he started to doze off, you felt your phone vibrate.


You felt nervous yet excited to meet up with Jin, you didn’t know what will happen, but maybe the both of you will finally resolve this two-year long bitterness.

Jin was clutching his phone angrily as he read your texts. He hated that after two years, you still managed to fuel something within him. You were dangerous, you were the match ready to ignite the fire in him. And the worse part is he’s still willing to put fuel over himself.

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Jin sat on the stool as he scrolled through his phone, anxiety builds up on his stomach as minutes passed by. Just as he was about to give up on you, he sees you enter the building.

He sits up straight as he ordered two drinks. You sit down next to him quietly, you take a sip of your drink. Minutes passed as the both of you kept silent, and as you felt the silence get too overbearing you snapped.

“Why did you want to meet up with me?”

“Can’t two friends have a drink?”

“Jin, we both know that we are far from friends now.”

Jin swallowed the last contents of his drink as he order his final glass.

“And whose fault is that?” He snapped bitterly.

“Did you call me here to argue or to make up?”

You sipped the last of your alcohol before asking for another glass.

“A little bit of both.”

You snorted and Jin smirks in return.

“Does your girlfriend even know you’re here with me?”

“No.”

You stared at him in annoyance.

“Won’t she be jealous?”

“I don’t care.”

You choked on your drink from his annoyed tone, he pats your back gently and you only swipe his arm away from him.

“You should care about your girlfriend’s feelings, you ass.”

“I don’t want to hear that from you.”

You grabbed your purse and got up, alerting Jin, who also got up.

“Look, I know I fucked you over two years ago, and I really am sorry, but if you really want to talk about it, stop pretending it didn’t happen by acting bitter all the time or shut up and leave me alone.”

Jin snorted, “You have no right to be mad! You left me when I bared my feelings to you!”

“I had my heart broken! I was not in my right mind! And even, if I had feelings for you back then, I still would’ve rejected you because Namjoon had broken my heart! How can I love someone else when I have just been hurt?! Yeah, I was selfish to have not answered you and to abandoned you, but this isn’t helping! I want to apologize to you properly and I want to make it up to you, but now I see that you want nothing to do with me.” You whispered out the last part, you felt tears drip down your face.

Jin froze at the sight of your guilt-ridden face, he wanted to kiss your tears away but the angry side of him refused.

You let out some sniffles before walking away, “Goodbye, Jin.”

Jin’s heart stops as he realized if he lets you go now, you will really be gone from his life forever. Without warning, he quickly grabs your arm and pulls you to his chest.

“I did not just find you after these two years, just to let you go again.”

His grip on you tighten as you let your sobs rack your body, Jin’s hand rubs smooth circles on your back and as the waiter shoots the both of you an annoyed look, he walks you out of the bar with him.

As the both of you stand in the deserted parking lot, clutching onto each other, you wailed out, “I’m so sorry, Jin. I never wanted to hurt you. I’m sorry for not thinking about your feelings too.”

Jin sniffled as well, “I’m sorry for not thinking about yours either. I should’ve known it was too soon, I felt like I pushed you further away from us.”

“No, Jin. It’s not your fault.” You clutched on the back of his jacket, feelilng his hard chest against yours.

“Y/n…” you raised your head to see his eyes.

They use to look so empty yet when he stares at you, they seem to hold the stars of the galaxy.

He opened his mouth to say something, but closed it. He didn’t want to ruin the moment.

“Let’s have coffee over at my place and smooth it out. I don’t think Ara is home right now.”

At the sound of Ara’s name, your heart ached but you nodded.

He doesn’t love you anymore.

……………………………………………………………

You arrived at Jin’s apartment and as you went inside, you noticed there were no drastic changes.

You were surprised to see that Ara’s things weren’t invading his comfy home either.

“Sit down on the couch, if you’ll like.”

You sat down on the couch and as you admired his home decor, you noticed there were no pictures of Ara and Jin.

Just as you were about to question him, Jin sat down next to you and hands you a mug.

“Careful, it’s hot.”

As you placed your lips on the mug, the hot liquid burns your lip causing you to jolt and spill some on your shirt.

“Y/N! ” Jin gets up and quickly wipes your shirt frantically. After wiping the stain away, Jin leaves to get you a shirt.

“Here, wear this.” You shake your head, but Jin insists.

“It’s okay, I need to go home anyways.”

“It’s too dark, just stay here.”

“What about Ara?”

“I don’t think she’ll mind.”

“Are you sure?”

Jin nods and as you felt yourself get tired, Jin hands you a blanket and pillow. You laid down on his couch and as your eyelids get heavier, you see Jin smiling fondly at you.

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

You were startled by the sound of loud whispers.

“Shh… You’ll wake her.”

“I don’t give a shit!” Ara whispered back.

“What is she doing on our couch?!”

“My couch and she’s staying the night. It’s too dark for her to be walking around.”

“Oh, but you have no problem sending me home around this time!”

“Jin, seriously though? Why are you so obsessed with her? Don’t you remember she broke your fucking heart! And I was the one to pick the pieces up!”

Jin fell silent and Ara took the cue to continue, “Since we been dating, you never shut up about her and you’re always looking around the streets as if you were looking for someone, especially when we left Korea. I’m not an idiot, you still love her!”

You opened your eyes slightly to see Jin and Ara standing in the hallway arguing. Jin had his head down.

“I had enough… Now, tell me, who are you going to pick? Me or her?”

Jin snapped his head up and stared at Ara for the longest time, and what he said next shocked you to the bone.

You had almost shot up from the couch and ran off, but you had to pretend you were sleeping.

You couldn’t believe his answer.

After everything that had happened in the past two years, he chose

My Recovery

∆∆

   The beating sun was torturous, just drowning the electrolytes and water out of everyone’s system the instant they walked outside the cool air conditioning. Let’s also not forget the awesome humidity that follows around this time of the year in this god forgiving state. 41% of humidity. Yeah no.

   Last Monday Night Raw before the first ever Paper per view Great Balls of Fire on Sunday. Today also was the young woman’s first day back to work in over a month. Her sparkling blue green eyes scanned over the Talking Stick Resort Arena, downtown Phoenix.

   Monday night raw and Tuesday night Smackdown were here in Phoenix, Arizona. It’d give the woman a couple of hours to let loose in town, and she couldn’t wait. With a deep breath, her anxiety settled in realizing all eyes would be on her.

   ‘Gotta go in sooner or later.’ She told herself before she extended her suitcase holding it in her right hand as her left stroke her wheelchair wheel and pushed it forward to the back of the resort arena gain access backstage.

   On her way there, her hands and arms grew tired, indicting how much she wasn’t use to being in a wheel chair and how weak her upper body strength was. It was very frustrating for her, she wasn’t use to any of it, and was just learning as she went.

   “Ma'am, ID please.“ The two security guards were posted at the back door of the stadium where the talent and WWE staff would enter through.

  Pulling the backpack that was squished between her back and her seat, pulling out her employee ID from her wallet getting the okay as they opened the door for her, and quietly tell her to have a goodnight. Sliding her ID back in her wallet, she entered backstage wondering who’d she run into.

   “Is that Miss Carter I’m seeing?!” She could recongize that voice from anywhere. WWE Veteran wrestler R-Truth (real name Ronnie Killings), who had this excited smile on his face seeing it was indeed one of favorite people I’m the company “It is you Miss Carter! My god girl! Look at you! I’m digging this.“

   He moved his hand up and down refering to her wheelchair making her smile tug at the corner of her lips. R-Truth was the best making even the most sad and negative things, and bringing the positive out of it. Isabella knew her accident could have been worse, so why making it all depressing and a sob story?

   “I do too. At least I can bump into people with my wheelchair and pull the innocent card.”

   The male wrestler burst out in laughter relieved she could joke a bit with everything right now.

   “See! A blessin’!“ Um, she guessed. “Where you headin’? Creative meeting?”

   Giving him a nod, he said “I’ll take you there,” Hooking her suitcase on her handles behind her seat, he gently pushed her as he was heading to the direction of catering. “I’m meeting up with Gold and the Hardy Boyz in catering. Just admire the dessert, torture ourselves.“

   A small smile was on her lips as they appeared in front of the door with a piece of paper that posted CREATIVE TEAM, indicting the two needed to say goodbye, for now. “Well, tell them I said hello, and thank you for accompanying me.”

  “Don’t thank me! See you later girl!”

From the end of s2

Welp I said their would be a part 3

This is more a prediction on what will happen in the coming seasons rather than a headcanon on Lance.

To be blunt, I think Lance will be given the offer to betray his team and join the galra.

The reason I reckon this will happen is not because I think the galra will see Lance as a weak link or anything but rather I reckon they (Lotor probably) will be the only ones to recongize how insecure Lance is feeling because no one else seems to notice these things.  When Lance was upset about mising his family Coran was the only one to come to him.  When Lance is insecure about his skills he talks about it to a pet yepper and that probably made him feel worse considering.  

And that whole new nickname screamed insercure but no one commented on it.


If Lotor is also 10,000 years old (and i don’t see why he won’t be like when else was Zarkon going to procreate except before he became evil) and Lance is the orignal Blue Paladin it’s likely the two knew each other before the world went to shit (it’s likely Allura knew Lotor too).  

In that situation I reckon Lotor will be the only one to recongize Lance for who he is (maybe Zarkon noticed it when he tried to take over Voltron and felt the familar connection and he told Haggar who told Lotor or maybe Lotor just isn’t fooled by the human disguise) and knows how insecure Lance has always been so offers him a place in the galra empire were he’ll be treated with respected and valued for all his done.

Or perhaps Lance gets captured and Lotor convinces him that his friends aren’t coming and the tiny part of him that says he’s a valued member of Voltron leaves him.  


Now, I’m not suggesting Lance turns evil.  Lance is much to loyal to actually betray his friends and much to kind to hurt people but I think it’s completely possible he’ll either forget that for a moment, he’ll be incredily injured because he refuses.

Or he’ll pull an aqualad.

And by that I mean he’ll seem to the others as though he’s betrayed them and he’ll work for/with Lotor but really he’s searching for Shiro.


Like I said more of a prediction than a headcanon and really it’s less a prediction and more a ‘wouldn’t it be cool if’ but I had to write it out so I can shout ‘CALLED IT’ if it does happen, you know?

A Welcome Mat at Death’s Door

Llors’ Grim Dog AU is why I get up in the morning just saying. Here’s an almost-fluffy fic about a very fluffy death omen.


Sunrise broke through the kitchen window of the Mystery Shack. It washed oranges and pinks across the sink, the tile, the fridge—now decorated with two dozen photos of Soos, Melody, and the Pines family. Ford sat at the table, one leg crossed, and sipped from a warm porcelain mug. It was quiet, save for the birds, the rustle of his newspaper and—

–an ominous, bleak, pulsating dread, like veins of ice in his chest. Ford shivered, then sighed, and looked around for—yup, standing in the doorway, smoky tail wagging. The Grim stuck its snout in the air, sniffed twice, then returned to panting.

“I haven’t seen Stan around, Grim. You should perhaps check his bedroom.” Ford took a gulp of coffee in an attempt to replace the ice in his stomach. He wasn’t certain the thing could understand speech. He’d never been dumb enough to try pursing a Grim to study.

“Nah don’t worry Ford I’m here. It’s with me.” Stan appeared in the same doorway then, buttoning up the collar of his shirt. Not quite his Mister Mystery get up—that’d been passed along to Soos at the end of last summer—but it was still nicer than his usual tanktop and boxers.

“The clothes are a bit unusual. As well as the hour. I’m not used to seeing you awake before noon. Plans?”

“First—uncalled for, also screw off, I’m allowed to enjoy sleep in my old age. Second—I’m taking the Grim out for some air.”

“And that requires nice clothes?”

“Well I aint taking it to the dog park, Ford.”
