Keith wasn’t sure how it happened, but at some point through the night he found his way into the children’s dancing circle. The children demanded that they dance around him in a circle, screaming at the top of their lungs, “Dance, Keith, dance!”
Now, keep in mind, Keith doesn’t consider himself the greatest dancer. He also hates dancing in front of other’s eyes (Especially in front of Abuelita, he could feel her glaring into his skull.)…Keith didn’t want to dance. But this was Mateo, and Keith would do anything for Mateo.

You had just gotten home from school. Today, was another weird day. Your long time friend, Peter (who you were also crushing on at the moment) was acting so weird lately, and today was no different. He wouldn’t hang out with you like he used to. Everyday after school something would come up and you wouldn’t see each other until school the next day. You missed the way it used to be. You two used to hang out everyday and do homework together, you two used to be inseparable, but as soon as he got that Stark internship, everything changed. Now you sit at your desk, getting ready to do homework… by yourself, the usual for you these days. You spotted the picture on your desk of you and Peter from last Christmas, when you spent the holiday with him and Aunt May. In the photo, you and Peter are wearing ugly sweaters and plush reindeer antler headbands (I LOVE headbands, guys. Animal headbands are the shit), mid laugh. It’s your favorite photo of you two, and you just couldn’t help but think about how cute he was. You were lost in thought when all of a sudden you hear a voice coming from right outside your window. You get up from your desk and walk over to the window to inspect the noise. You pull back the blinds and open the window to see… Spider-Man? “What the hell…” You mumbled under your breath. He didn’t seem to notice your presence because he kept on with his conversation over the phone. “I helped this lady with directions” He said, mask pulled up just far enough for his mouth to be exposed. “She was really nice and bought me a churro.” He held up his hand, referencing to the sweet treat, taking a bite right after. You stood there in shock until he finished his conversation and hung up the phone. That was when you climbed through your window and onto the fire escape, only this time he heard you. As soon as your feet hit the metal on the fire escape, his head whipped around to face you. His mouth hung open. “Y/N?!” He said shocked. You were confused as hell now. “How do you know my name?” You spoke cautiously. It’s in that moment that you hear a soft but frantic voice come from the hero in red and blue. “umm… I don’t. I mean…” His voice cracks slightly as he awkwardly attempts to cover up his mistake. He clears his throat and starts again, this time in a fake lower voice, placing his hands on his hips like a cheesy comic book hero. “Hello miss” He said. You made a sour facial expression at his attempt to cover up. “Umm… okay” You said, weirded out. “Let’s start over…” You reached your arm over, through your open window, and into your desk. You pulled out a letter opener and pointed it at Spider-Man, the unlikely intruder. You slowly walked over to him, never taking your eyes away from him. “A… letter opener…?” He laughed a fake hearty laugh, still trying to pull off the fake deep voice. “Silly citizen.” You narrowed your eyes at him “Okay cut the bullshit” You frowned slightly. “No one says that.” You said, irritated with his “macho” attitude. You threw your letter opener at him in hopes that it would make you look intimidating. It was actually pretty pathetic looking. Your attempt at spearing his arm with it ended up with you just hitting him on the forehead with the handle. His hands immediately left their place on his hips to cover his forehead where your letter opener just hit him. “Ouch.” He started talking normally again. “What the hell?!” He yelled, surprised at your sudden action. “No, what the hell to you!” You yelled back at him. “Why are you stalking me?” He seemed offended by your question. “I am NOT stalking you.” He said, defensively. “Umm… you’re sitting outside my room and you know my name so…” You trailed off, annoyed. “Okay, listen…” He held his breath. “I’m Spider-Man.” He said, letting out the breath he had been holding. You gave him a funny look. “Yeah… I kinda got that…” You said, raised your arms and gesturing to his suit. “Damn it…” He said. “Will you let me take off my mask first?” You held your hands up in defense. “My bad.” He pulled his mask up and your eyes widened at the sight in front of you. “Peter?!” You loudly exclaimed, shocked. “YOU’RE SPI-” Peter jumped and held his hand over your mouth to keep you from talking. “Shhhh. Y/N! Be quiet! You can’t tell anybody!” Peter stage whispered at you. You nodded your head at him and he removed his hand from your mouth. “So… you hang from ceilings and stuff right?” He nodded at you. “Show me” You said, smiling. “Y/N… I don’t know…” You gave Peter a ‘really?’ look. He gave you the same look back. “C'mon! Pleaseeeeee?” You put on your puppy face and your eyes welled with fake tears. Peter’s look softened and he gave in. “Okay fine!” He said finally. “Yay!” You said, excitedly, slightly fangirling. Peter shot a web up at the fire escape above you and held onto it, flipping to be upside down. You stared at him, bewildered, as he hung from the web, smiling over at you. “So what do you think?” He asked you. You smiled and walked over to him. “I think…” You moved your hands to hold the sides of his face. Peter’s expression turned hopeful and his mouth hung open slightly as if he was in a trance. “You,” You said, thumbs brushing along his face. You leaned in to Peter’s lips and kissed him. Peter kissed back as soon as he registered what was going on. The kiss wasn’t too long, but it was passionate. When you pulled away, you continued what you were saying to Peter. “You,” You repeated. “Should get your ass inside.” You started walking towards your window. Peter looked at you in shock, flipping down from his previous position. “Uh… w-what?” He couldn’t believe what was happening. You stopped and turned around to look at him. “Or stay out here in the storm.” Just as Peter looked up at the sky, a crackle of thunder was heard and he could see dark grey clouds rolling in from the distance. “But I prefer you come in here and keep me company.” Peter turned his eyes back to you as you said this. You smiled at him as he picked up his stuff and came inside after you. When you two came through the window, he awkwardly stood by it. You walked out of your room and came back with sweatpants and a t-shirt for Peter to wear. “Here, Peter.” You dropped the t-shirt and sweatpants into his hands. “That suit doesn’t look too comfortable to wear for a long time.” He looked at you. “Thanks, but… where should I change?” He asked. “You can change in here, I’ll just leave.” You told him. He shifted slightly and gave you an “okay” and you exited the room. You went over to the kitchen to look for some snacks for the two of you when you heard Peter actively struggling with what you assumed was his Spider-Man suit. You heard a loud groan of frustration followed by Peter yelling for your help. “Y/N?” You giggled at his defeated tone. “Yeah?” You yelled back, trying not to let him know you were giggling. “Can you help me get my suit off?” You smiled and went back to your room to help Peter. You walked over to Peter and helped him unzip the dang thing. “Thanks.” Peter said, cheeks tinted a light pink. You smiled at him. “No problem.” You blushed slightly at how cute he was. “If you need anything else, just holler.” Just as you were exiting, you turned around to look at Peter just at the moment that his suit came off. You nearly had a heart attack at the sight of Peter’s physique. “Holy shit!” You jumped up in surprise, hand quickly gripping back onto the door knob. Your mouth was gaping and the hand that wasn’t gripping the door knob, was over your heart. Your breath was taken away at the sight of your shirtless best friend turned crush. Peter’s head snapped up to look at you, thinking that something was wrong. “What! What happened?! Is everything okay?” Peter exclaimed in worry. You couldn’t take it anymore. There he was, shirtless in all his glory, and he liked you back. So, what were you waiting for? You ran across the room to where Peter was and thankfully, he caught on. He wrapped his arms around your waist as you jumped, wrapping your arms around his neck and latching your lips onto his. Peter wasn’t prepared for your fast approach, however, and your momentum caused both of you to fall onto your bed (ooh… saucy). Peter pulled away from the kiss, making you frown slightly. “Will you go out with me?” You looked down at Peter, smiling widely. “Yes! Duh! Oh my god!” You giggled. Peter smiled at you. “But…” Peter gave you a skeptical look. “I get to try on your suit.” His look softened and he chuckled slightly. “Okay.” “And I get to meet the Avengers…” You added. Peter’s head snapped towards you. “What? Y/N! What the hell?!” You laughed. “I’m just kidding…” You rolled off of Peter’s chest and he got up from the bed. Peter turned to look back at you as he picked up the t-shirt you gave him. You jumped up from the bed and snatched the shirt from his grip. “No!” Peter was taken aback by your sudden outburst. “I forbid you from putting a shirt on!” He gave you a look. “What? Why?” You shrugged at him. “Because…” You trail off. You continue, smirking. “Those abs are too delicious.” Peter looks shocked now. “And besides… You ditched me for months and didn’t tell me why until now. So I think you owe me this for all my suffering.” Peter’s cheeks tint pink and his lips curve up into a smirk. You smile at him sweetly and plant a kiss on his lips before walking out of the room, dragging your hand along his abs as you walk away from him.
Love ur writing bro!!! How do u think the pack finds out about theo and liam when they finally get together
Fucking Theo is how.
Theo may be an evil genius but he’s also about a subtle as a bullhorn and the kind of lucked out with the OG pack going off to college just before they started hooking up so they didn’t really have to worry about them.
Mason and Corey find out as soon as Liam and Theo get together. Mainly because Liam and Theo walk over one day and Theo’s grinning despite blood dripping from his nose and Liam’s still blushing and when they ask what happened Liam replies “He kissed me so I punched him.”
“We’re going on a date on friday.” Theo says proudly.
“The way you flirt scares me.” Corey says.
By the time the OG pack’s back for Christmas the two have been officially dating for just over three months.Theo blames it on Corey and Mason not having super hearing. He’d grown used to being able to say whatever he wanted in Liam’s ear without other people being able to hear. To people not being able to sense the emotions coiling through them so when everyone’s at Scott and Stiles puts a stupid pair of reindeer antlers on Liam’s head and Liam refuses to take them off for the rest of the evening Theo thinks nothing of it when he slides up behind Liam and muttering “If you think I’ll let you fuck me in those you’re dumber than you look”
That is until Scott drops his glass and Malia lets out a sound that’s somewhere between a scream and a laugh.
It only gets worse when Stiles demands to know why Scott looks like he’s about to faint and Malia actually repeats it for all in the room, including Melissa McCall to hear.
After that it’s pretty common knowledge that Liam and Theo are dating. Scott’s still too embarrassed to actually ask any questions. Stiles however never shuts up about it.
Liam may have forgiven Theo for a lot but having to face Melissa McCall after a statement like that is too much for even him to forgive.
Theo thinks it’s hilarious once he realises no one wants to kill him for shacking up with the ‘baby’ of the group.
Jungkook is young and he is more acquainted with confusion and poor-decision-making than he’d like to admit. Despite being only 19 years old, he sometimes argues that he’s been through and seen some shit. He is never sure where he’s going to end up and he’s not entirely sure what kind of future is waiting for him. He is often not sure of a lot but he is certain—absolutely certain—that he’s not gay.
Alternatively, a story in which Jungkook meets Park Jimin and doesn’t like him whatsoever. There’s just something about him… there’s just so much about him. Jungkook really can’t stand him. In fact, he can’t stand him so much he can’t quite seem to get him off of his mind.
Prompt: “Jungkook likes his coworker Jimin but doesn’t do anything about it, but Jimin comes to the company holiday dressed up as a reindeer with little antlers and a collar with BELLS on it and the bells drive Jungkook nuts.
Jimin started recording himself when he got a boyfriend who had a thing for recording them while they were fucking. It was also at that time when he made a blog on tumblr and started posting short videos, gifs and pictures of himself. His followers loved his big ass, big perky lips, thick cock and chubby fingers. He even became friends with another guy who also owned a gay porn blog on tumblr and frequently posted videos of himself. Jimin wasn’t very into internet romance but the the guy was exactly his type - he was tall, muscular and had a big thick cock that Jimin would absolutely pay to suck.
The Good Doctor by snarcsics (ok this one is really illegal and definitely a guilty pleasure but i have read it so many times)
Jungkook’s your basic sex addict. Troubled, distant, angry, and somewhat cocky, however Jimin suspects that was there long before Jungkook became an addict.
Jimin has been going through a dry spell. Taehyung decides the best way for him to get laid is dressing as a sexy cat for Halloween. Jimin meets Jungkook, a guy armed with bad cat puns who definitely approves of the costume.
Admittedly, Jimin knew he was being over the top. As far as he was concerned, literal eons passed since Jungkook let loose. He missed that. And, seriously, Jungkook was just so good-looking. So, there’s that.
I was thinking about the kids from U.A. and what would happen if they were to have licenses, here was the result-
Was the first to get his license because he wanted to show off
Has the absolute worst road rage in the entire class, he keeps his windows down to yell at people and honks his horn a lot
At first, he drove like a madman and left people clutching their seats, but he has gradually gotten better
He drives a manual, which took a hell of a long time to learn how to do
He actually doesn’t speed (most the time) and somewhat obeys the rules of the road
He’ll drive Deku around when he asks because Deku is useless and doesn’t have a license yet, but when anyone else asks for a ride he asks for gas money and will fight whoever brings Deku in the conversation
He’ll purposely swerve to scare (Deku) his passengers
Usually has the radio turned up loud and will smack your hand and scowl at you if you try to turn it down or change the station
He wasn’t planning on getting a license since he prefers to walk, but his mom insisted he get one so he did
He’ll give rides to whoever needs one, but he’s glad not many ask since the students already have their license
Izuku was the last one amongst his class to get a license
He gets really nervous when driving and tends to avoid it when possible
His driving is really stiff, sometimes he stops too fast or turns too suddenly and scares whoever is with him, which he apologizes after
He never drives at night or in the rain, he doesn’t trust himself enough
He uses his mom’s car as he didn’t want her to have to buy something he wouldn’t really use (he did however put an All Might sticker on one of the windows which his mom doesn’t mind)
He doesn’t get road rage, instead he gets extremely scared because oh god did he just scratch his mom’s car??
He drives SO SLOW, like, 5x less than the actual speed limit
Obeys every single rule and sign, obviously, but if you’re in the car with him it will get tedious after awhile depending on your patience
Surprisingly, he gets road rage often but he isn’t as bad as Katsuki, he’ll just talk to himself or rant to whoever is (unfortunately) in the car with him
He has a soccer mom car big enough to fit 5 or more people
He’s super helpful and will pull over if he sees someone that needs assistance with their car on the side of the road
He doesn’t allow anyone eating in his car, he likes to keep it nice and clean, but he usually doesn’t buy fast food anyway because he says it’s unhealthy
Not many people ask him for rides, which he doesn’t understand why and makes him slightly upset
Treats his car like his baby and takes really good care of it
He drives with friends a lot, he enjoys the company and won’t ask for gas money afterwards
He has a car without a hood since he likes to feel the wind in his hair, it makes him feel free, but he gets super bummed out when it rains
Of course his car is red, and of course it matches his hair
He’s a pretty smooth driver and has never been in any accident
He doesn’t get road rage very easily, unless someone almost crashes into his car while he has a friend with him, that’s when he gets super pissed and protective as he wouldn’t be able to forgive himself if someone was hurt in his car
He got a car that he can start himself with his quirk
Has a hula girl hanging from the mirror as well as some other incenses
There’s a black lightning bolt on the side of his car (much like the one on his hair)
Most likely when you ask for a ride he’ll have to clean out the passenger’s side since it’s probably messy with trash he hasn’t thrown away (he’s a hero he isn’t going to litter)
He decorates the outside of his car depending on the season (small reindeer antlers for Christmas, rabbit ears for easter, etc.)
His driving isn’t bad, but it’s not good either, sometimes he follows the speed limits and other times he’ll just forget.
He almost never gets road rage, he’s got plenty of patience on the road and usually brushes off small things
She got her license not long after Katuski got his, and only because her parents wanted her to be able to go out on her own
She has a cute little beetle car that’s black with a white stripe down the middle, her parents picked it out for her
The windows of her car are decorated in stickers of stars and planets, one of them is a sticker of the hero 13
Her driving is pretty calm and skilled, she doesn’t speed but she also isn’t too slow, another plus is that she knows how to keep up a conversation, making rides with her really enjoyable
Her car is kept clean even though she or her friends will eat in there sometimes
Seeing road rage from her is extremely rare but also extremely terrifying
She knows how to fix her car in case it breaks down, her parents had taught her everything she needs to know
For Anon! My ask box is open again :) Enjoy! (You + Kim Jaehwan)
It was your freshman year at college, and you were attending one relatively far from your family. You were slightly anxious about starting meeting people and professors from scratch, but you were looking forward to making new friends and learning regardless
You arrived on the college campus for orientation completely clueless, but hey that’s okay
When you first moved in, you did that thing where you be friendly to pretty much anyone, to try to find some friends/people to hang out with
You were put in a four-year dorm, meaning that freshmen up to seniors were all in the same dorm: this made you somewhat anxious but you thought you’d be fine
The day before classes started, your dorm all met up together to do introductions and awkward icebreakers
It was the first time you were meeting any upperclassmen, but from the beginning one person stood out
This person, whose name you would later find out to be Kim Jaehwan, was undoubtedly the life of the party
He was constantly joking around and screaming “OKAY OKAY” every couple of minutes, but nobody was annoyed by him – in fact, the RAs in charge of the dorm seemed to be completely used to his antics
He even had this really strange sounding scream-laugh that escaped his mouth at times, but all it did was make other people start giggling along with him: he was contagious and you personally thought it was incredibly charming
Needless to say, he was, even if it was unintentional, incredibly well-liked by people older and younger than him
And this popularity made him seem… unapproachable, like he was on a pedestal, at least to you
Where in reality, he was probably… definitely willing to talk with anyone
From that first encounter with the group, you had developed an innocent crush on the guy
He was incredibly funny and likable not to mention really attractive
Anyway you didn’t share many classes with him, since he was 2 years ahead of you in school, a junior
And that was fine, you weren’t looking really to make a relationship out of this, you just thought he was a cute guy lol
But during all the dorm activities, you got so distracted because of him
There would be game nights and group dinners and movie marathons and you (and your friends, to your dismay) frequently caught you wistfully staring at him or laughing a little too hard at his jokes
You thought you were subtle about it, but if someone hung around you at the same time Jaehwan was in the room, it really wasn’t that hard to tell where you mind and heart were lol
Despite all this (and pressure from your friends), you never approached him, because like, how?
Well before the first semester ended, you actually happened to have one interaction with him
You usually didn’t attend any of the dorm parties, because you are extremely physically irritated by loud noises and music, and so far most of the parties had been the “turn up” type, not many of the chiller hangouts, so you pretty much stayed in your room doing quiet things with your friends like games or internet browsing
But at the end of the semester, there was this one winter holidays party that “everyone” attended, as your friends and dorm-mates told you, so you decided why not, to just check it out for a bit
You didn’t think you would be there for too long, so you didn’t dress up too much: you wore red sweatpants and a green shirt to embody the “holiday spirit”
When you got to the party, you realized why people said it was much more extravagant than the other ones
This one seemed to have a much larger budget, and there were beautiful decorations everywhere, with balloons and Christmas trees and pretty holiday lights
And to your pleasant surprise, the music wasn’t super loud or anything, in fact it was just the regular old holiday music lol
Everyone was dressed up way more than you were, but you felt comfortable, much more than you thought you would when you first heard about the idea
Trying new things isn’t so bad, (Y/N), you instructed yourself, content with the experience so far (even though you hadn’t talked to anyone yet lol)
You didn’t know how to dance to Christmas songs, so you headed to kitchen to grab some good food yuss
Surprisingly, the kitchen was completely empty when you entered: the perfect time to steal all foods ! ! ! !
Unable to hold back the evil smile that was starting to cover your face, you stacked snacks on your plate, growing happier and happier as your plate filled up to the edges
You were so glad you had come to the party LOL
Satisfied with your collection, you headed over to the drinks, where there was various bowls of questionable substances
What are these even… there wasn’t a label or anything
As you scratched your neck and bended down to smell the liquids, you didn’t notice another person entering the room
Yes you guessed it
It was the one and only Kim Jaehwan, and you failed to notice his eyes boring into the top of your head, as he stood on the opposite side of the food counter
Multiple things about this first meeting:
1. Jaehwan already knew who you were. lol. and he also knew about your crush. also lol. word spreads pretty quickly through the dorm, and you were unaware of that! congrats !
2. There are two people now in this room: you and him,,, and you have your nose hovering above a bowl of punch or something
GREAT FUCKN JOB (Y/N) TRULY INNOVATIVE
Anyway yes you were smelling the punch because you didn’t want to consume any sketchy alcohol at this party (you hadn’t drank before anyway, and you didn’t want the conditions of your first time to be mystery fluid)
“Is this alcoholic…” you mumbled to yourself, before your eyes flicked up to meet Jaehwan’s, making you gasp and stand up straight in surprise, almost tripping over your own feet, making Jaehwan laugh at your reaction
Nice one, real nice, (Y/N)…
He looked too good for words, his brown hair looking messy but perfect at the same time, in his own pair of sweats and a long t-shirt, with an adorable reindeer antler headband on his head
“I’m pretty sure the red one has alcohol, and the peach one just has some sodas, punch, and ice cream.”
They were the first words he had spoken to you, and you wished you were capable of acting completely normally but you were too much of a spAZ to do that
“Oh, okay, thank you, I-I’ll get the red one then,” you sputtered out
“You want the alcoholic one? Oh, I thought you were under the impression you didn’t, with the way you were sniffing those bowls, haha”
“Oh, no I meant the non alcoholic one, gah” you corrected, mentally kicking yourself for literally saying gah like out loud
“Nah you’re good, these parties are pretty confusing at first, I totally get it. I came for the food too,” Jaehwan said with his gorgeous laugh
“Oh, you did? Come for just the food, you mean?”
“I mean, look at me,” Jaehwan said, pointing to his outfit. “This is my sleep outfit, and I have fully planned to fall into a food coma today.”
You couldn’t stop your blush from rising to your cheeks in reaction to his joke, before you asked without thinking, “you sleep with those antlers on?”
Jaehwan seemed slightly caught off guard for a split second, before he smoothly responded, gasping and clutching his chest
“(Y/N), I am so offended, the antlers aren’t a costume, its a serious physical defect, I can’t believe you don’t have the sense to not talk about that to me,” he cried out
You couldn’t keep up the joke and started giggling, before you realized… did he just say my name? How does he know my name…
But guess what? Your thoughts had unknowingly slipped out of your mind, and he heard you ask him that, out loud, you only realizing you had done that when you looked up to see Jaehwan staring at him, his cheeks turning a shade of red that matched your pants
“Ah, of course I know the name of my fellow dorm-mate, we’ve been living in the same place for the past couple months,” he saved, looking less confident than you had ever seen him
Just then, another freshman from your dorm walked in, and with some confidence you had unknowingly conjured up, you challenged Jaehwan out of nowhere
“Okay, so what’s their name?” you asked, as Jaehwan coughed randomly into the air, claiming that your game was completely unfair to him
“I bet this person isn’t even from our dorm and just snuck in here, please,” he replied with some fake arrogance
“Fine, then do the next person that enters,” you said, enjoying his misery
And the two of you just stood there in the kitchen, leaning on the countertop, staring at everyone who came in, for the next 30 minutes, stuffing food into your mouths
Turns out, Jaehwan barely knew any of the freshmen or sophomores in the dorm, leading to a lot of laughter from the both of you as he made up random names on the spot
After some time of this, when the kitchen emptied out again, you let the question that had been lingering on your subconscious slip out
“So why did you only know my name?” you laughed, before stopping instantly, realizing what you had said
And you were met with… silence
Your nervously looked up at Jaehwan, and saw him staring at his feet, which were bending over on the ground uncomfortably, a drastic change from his usual psycho demeanor
“Uh, well, I sorta heard thatyoulikeme…” he quickly said, the volume of his voice trailing off
And just like that, you could have sworn you heard your heart drop
Oh my gosh, this is so embarrassing, your cheeks pinking for a different reason than they had been the rest of this evening
“Oh,” was all you managed to get out, standing up straight, subconsciously starting to move away from him, your head turning to face a different direction
“Wait, no, (Y/N), I’m not talking to you just because of that,” Jaehwan said, placing a soft hand on your shoulder, holding you back, making you hesitantly look back at him
“I mean,” he said, starting to awkwardly laugh, “a lot of people knew about it, although I didn’t realize how much you enjoyed looking at me until one of my friends told me,”
“Ugh I get it, I’m totally obvious, I have a huge crush on you, big deal,” you replied, disheartened, moving Jaehwan’s hand on your shoulder with one of your own, but he took advantage of the contact and took your hand
“Wait, no, I’m sorry, I don’t think I’m explaining this properly, I heard you liked me and I didn’t know who you were, but I found out soon after that, and I sorta noticed you were really cute and you always laughed at my jokes and seem really nice and I want to get to know you better because I kinda like you too,” he hurriedly confessed
You were totally overwhelmed at the past minute of new information, staring blankly at Jaehwan, as he looked back at you, waiting for a response
Jaehwan smirked at you, making your heartbeat rise; seeing you get all flustered at his words made him incredibly satisfied
“So do you want to get to know each other better?” he asked, poking your nose
You finally let a smile break free onto your face, nodding enthusiastically
“What? I can’t hear you,” Jaehwan teased
“Okey okey!” you exclaimed, making Jaehwan lose his cockiness and pull you into a hug
“OKEY OKEY!” he screamed, and you kicked him in response, your physical reaction being completely different from your rapidly beating heart but who cares hahhahahaha
You two just chatted and ate for the rest of the party, sometimes going out to stare at the people dancing, the both of you proclaiming that you weren’t “dancing people” (Jaehwan demonstrated some of his… questionable dancing moves to demonstrate his point)
Anyway when your friends heard this news, they were all relieved, claiming that they thought it would never happen (GEE THANKS)
(Jaehwan’s friends were equally happy, having been annoyed for the past couple months of him staring at you and asking them if you had laughed at his attempts to be funny)
You two still didn’t share many classes, but met a lot in the dorm, and activities were actually able to be enjoyed by you after this because not all your attention was on him!!! Wowza!
For example,,, movie nights turned from staring at each other from across the room to cuddling under a blanket AHHH
(well that might not be the best example… as his presence next to you was tbh still pretty incredible for a little bit haH)
You two raided parties solely for the food, becoming infamous for creepily staring at people while the both of you munched on snacks
As you loosened up around him and became more comfortable with your dorm group as a whole, you actually found that you had a psycho laugh as well (some people said yours sounded like a hyena mixed with a squeaky door)
Who needs a power couple when you can have a psycho couple
Steve and Natasha having the best time together pranking the other Avengers over Christmas
“This is NOT April Fool’s Day!”
The shout echoes down the lab halls.
Natasha smirks and high-fives Steve.
“You were so right.” She peers over Steve’s phone while they
walk. “The shiny snowman wrapping paper
was definitely the one to use.”
The peer at the screen of
his phone in the elevator, watching Tony unwrap all of his lab supplies, (Each.
And. Every. Item.)
“When do you think he
“If I may, Captain
Rogers.” came JARVIS’ voice. The screen
in the elevator above the buttons flickered to life. Tony was trying to move the six-foot stuffed
teddy bear wearing a pair of reindeer antlers without success.
“Oh my God, you guys suck.” Came the crystal-clear shout over
the audio a minute and a half later when the ‘bear’ hadn’t so much as budged. Tony went searching for an as-yet-unwrapped
pair of scissors or knife to cut Dum-E out of his Reindeer Teddy hiding
“Ok, we have an hour
before Bucky gets back. We have just
enough time to get the palm tree from the lobby and stick it in his
bathroom. Clint has the bags of sand for the floor and JARVIS is ready with Don’t
Worry, Be Happy when Bucky turns the light on.”
Steve grinned. “Perfect.
A Caribbean vacation for Christmas he’ll get.”
The vast territory of North and Central Asia represents a poorly understood region in the prehistoric era, despite intensive excavations that have been conducted during the past century. The earliest human occupation in this region probably began sometime around 40,000 years ago. Small groups of big-game hunters likely migrated into this region from lands to the south and southwest, confronting a harsh climate and long, dry winters. By about 20,000 B.C.E., two principal cultural traditions had developed in Siberia and northeastern Asia: the Mal’ta and the Afontova Gora-Oshurkovo.
The Mal’ta tradition is known from a vast area spanning west of Lake Baikal and the Yenisey River. The site of Mal’ta, for which the culture is named, is composed of a series of subterranean houses made of large animal bones and reindeer antler which had likely been covered with animal skins and sod to protect inhabitants from the severe, prevailing northerly winds.
Among the artistic accomplishments evident at Mal’ta are portable art – not murals, as is more common in Europe. The remains of expertly carved bone, ivory, and antler objects have been found at many Mal'ta sites. Figurines of birds and human females are the most commonly found items. Some of the most well known examples are the so-called Venus figurines.
Taking the Ring Road through the northern highlands, I kept a sharp eye out for reindeer, but at the tail end of hunting season, they proved scarce.
That night, we camped at Skoldolfsstadir, which proved to be a center for reindeer hunting. It was a fascinating spot, if not as spectacular as other campsites.
Not least fascinating was this smoke hut, the kitchen area for the campsite, but also a curing shed for reindeer hides.
I’m from Montana, so I’m no stranger to rough log cabins, but this felt different, older somehow. The scent of the curing hides, the smell of smoke and wood chips which had become part of the beams, the light filtering through the ragged hides around the top of the hut… stepping through those doors felt like stepping into a different world.
