He wouldn’t let you feel embarrassed because you couldn’t swim. He would sit with you and do whatever you wanted to do because he wouldn’t want you to do something that you didn’t feel comfortable with.

“Come on y/n join us!!” Minhyuk tried to drag you into the pool. You tried to stop him from dragging you. “I can’t swim Minhyuk” you told him. “Oh” he replied and immediately let go of your hand. “Its okay. You don’t have to go in. I can stay here with you and we can talk” he smiled. “You don’t have to Minhyuk. Go have fun” you urged him. “But I want to talk. You know how much I love it” he winked with both eyes like a kid. So the both of you sat on beach chairs by the pool and talked abut everything and anything attracting the attention of those in the pool with your loud laughs and bright smiles.


I think Kihyun would be very practical about the whole situation. He wouldn’t be too surprised. In fact I don’t think he would give much of a reaction at all because lots of people cant swim and there is nothing new about that. However he would say something along the lines of not be embarrassed by it.

“Why are you embarrassed that you can’t swim?” He asked you with a curious expression on his face. “I don’t know, because most people do, and I am terrified of stepping in the water because of it” you shrugged and pressed your lips together. He sighed. “I’ll teach you how to swim and then you won’t be embarrassed” he declared. “Ki.. Thank you” you smiled at him. Corners of his eyes crinkled and his smile reached his eyes. When you tried to apologize he stopped you by putting his index finger on your lips. “Stop being so formal and its not a sin. If you are scared then you are scared. Its nothing to be ashamed of y/n” he said in the earnest.


Hyungwon would be really sweet about you being scared to enter the pool. He would find it very endearing how you got scared but he wouldn’t force it upon you and understand your fear.

“Really?” He asked you when you told him why you didn’t want to enter the pool. You covered your face with your hands which he snickered at. He wouldn’t be able to to contain the smile that broke out on his face as he uncovered your face. “Y/n you don’t have to feel embarrassed by it in the slightest. If you don’t want to go in the pool you don’t have to” he assured you as he could see you feeling tense. “Dont tell anyone about it” you requested. He nodded his head but he couldn’t help but laugh at how cute it was. “ Ok. I won’t" he put his index finger on his lips. “Its our secret” he whispered while trying oi control his giddiness.


I am sure this boy himself might be scared to enter into the pool. But either way he would try to comfort you if the others forced you to go into the pool, or if you simply didn’t want to.

“Changkyunie stop, if she doesn’t want to go” jooheon lightly scolded him as he tried to drag you into the pool. I.M threw his hands up in the air and jumped into the pool with a splash leaving you wet in the process. “Are you okay?” He asked you as your dried yourself off. You nod. “Dont worry about it. It doesn’t really matter. There are more things out there than knowing how to swim” he patted your shoulder. “We can go somewhere else if you want. We don’t have to stay here” he offered. You could sense the sincerity in his voice so you gave him a small hug at which his cheeks went pink and his head hung low because he couldn’t stop smiling like an idiot.


He might tease you playfully because you didn’t know how to swim, but he wouldn’t mean it. Like Kihyun though he would also not not make a big deal about it because its nothing out of the ordinary.

“Wow the perfect y/n doesn’t know how to swim? Tsk tsk tsk” he shook his head. You slapped his upside on the head. “I am kidding. Chill” he screamed. “Dont” you said in a threatening tone. “Its not a big deal that you are scared of going into the pool. It’s normal. So stop being sensitive about it loser” he teased you. You couldn’t help but smile, although you should have gotten mad at him for calling you a loser. “If you feel scared you can always hold on to me” he offered feeling flustered himself. So he led you into the pool while letting you clutch to him as if your life depended on it. But for him it was a way for him to get you to feel closer to him so you would notice his big crush on you.


Wonho would understand you. He wouldn’t judge you for it because he has his own share of fears. I feel he would encourage you to not feel embarrassed or shy because you couldn’t swim.

When you adamantly refused to enter the pool the rest of the boys gave up. Except for Wonho. He took a seat next to you. Seeing your red cheeks made him chuckle lighty. “Cant swim?” he asked. Your eyes widened and you looked at him. “I just guessed” he smiled. “Dont be embarrassed by it y/n. I am afraid of heights, and I don’t go on rides. We all have something that scares us. Besides you can always learn how to swim. Its not an impossible thing to do” he smiled. He then held up an inflatable ring buoy in front of you. He placed it over your head until it reached your waist. “This will keep you safe” he winked and led you to the pool. (OMFG THIS GIF IS SO CUTE SOMEONE PLEASE HELP)


He would be surprised that you didn’t know how to swim but being the teddy bear that he is, he would try to help you out. Specially he would have a crush on you, he would try his best to get you to feel comfortable. He would be very sweet about it too.

You and the rest of the boys were at the pool. They were all having fun while you watched them splash water at each other from the sidelines. Shownu came up to to you and asked you to join them. When you told him you didn’t know how to swim he chuckled. “Is that it y/n?” You nodded. “Okay come on” he extended his hand towards you. You wrapped your hand in his and he led you towards the pool. You stopped mid way and started shaking your head. “Its not the deep end. The water will barely reach your waist” he squeezed your hand. He led you in further all the while holding your hand. “Thanks Shownu” you smiled up at him thankfully and returned the smile just as brightly.

dubiousculturalartifact’s post made me curious, and I decided to look up the actual Sharkey’s.  (Simultaneously laughing and sad about that name given the loan shark thing.)  It’s about as nautical as you would expect.  They kept the buoys and fishing apparatus and the ring buoy, which as obsessionisaperfume noted forums a halo behind Cas at one point.

Also I feel obliged to note that Claire is drinking soda and not water.  At that point their relationship is strictly instrumental.  She just wanted to escape the child prison, and Cas simultaneously feels guilty and (I think) is looking to fill the road trip buddy-shaped void in his life that Hannah left behind.
