Imagine Keith and Lance in a wonderful established relationship in which they share a room and everything.
They have this tradition of saying “I love you” to each other before going to sleep every. single. night. They don’t know how it started but it’s a thing now and they can’t sleep without it. It’s natural to do it now.
But of course they’re Keith and Lance so they have to fight. And one day they have this huge fight and in the end Keith says something really, really hurtful to Lance and then Lance says something equally hurtful back to him and then they just completely stop talking and ignore each other. It’s not like the fights they used to have earlier. This one is extra horrible. They’re both extremely angry at each other. They fucked up bad this time.
So when that night it’s time to go to bed, they’re still not talking to each other. But they share the same room so they obviously have to sleep together.
So, Keith is just lying in bed with the lights off, not waiting, but still waiting for Lance. Lance comes in about an hour later. He just quietly slips in, not even turning on the light. He’s expecting Keith to be asleep. But we know Keith is not.
Keith is of course, lying still, pretending to be asleep, but following Lance’s every movement. After Lance has settled down in the bed, they both try to fall asleep but they both can’t (ofc).
This awkward, uncomfortable silence goes on for about 10 minutes.
They’re both restless, both itching to say something, but not wanting to be the first one to break. Keith, no matter how much he tries to stop himself, softly blurts out an “I love you”.
He hears nothing in return for some time and it feels like an eternity because his heart is beating so fast and he’s so scared thinking that if Lance doesn’t reply this time, Keith has really, really messed this up.
But after a few moments he hears Lance quietly reply “I love you, too”. And all at once, he can breathe again. The relief washing over him like a tidal wave. He didn’t even realise how worked up he was until now.
And yes, they both know that this is far from a resolution. And yes, they’re both still really pissed at the other. They still have to talk so much out, maybe even fight some more. They know that they will both have to try to understand the other, they will both have to compromise and change themselves.
They know that they still have a very long way to go. Relationships are hard work, after all. But now they also know they have that security that no matter what, they’ll always love each other. Nothing is ever going to change that fact. And for now, that’s enough. That’s all they need. The rest will work itself out, eventually.
And with that reassurance, they both slowly drift off to sleep.
DMing a home brew game that I’ve set in Egypt, where my party will have random encounters with Egyptian gods disguised as humans in need of favors. Party is currently in a bar and one player (Water Nymph Mage - who has proclaimed her character is an athiest) takes notice of two rather attractive NPCs.
Mage: I walk over to (NPC name) and (NPC name) and start flirting with them.
DM: Roll seduction.
DM: Both are immediately enthralled by you and offer to let you share their room with them for the night.
Mage: *laughing* I accept.
DM: I’m leaving the nights…activities, to your fucked up perverted imagination. Anyway, the next morning arises and you wake to find both are gone, and you have a nasty headache. Upon entering the bathroom to search for painkillers, you notice two things. One, you are still shirtless, and two, because you are still shirtless you can see two, very distinctly different, tattoos now inked onto either side of your hips.
Mage: *confused* What happened-
DM: Role a history check.
DM: You quickly realize that these new tattoos are in fact, the religious runes that represent the gods Anubis and Set, respectively. Congratulations, you just had a Threesome with Gods.
Before Niall played Flicker for the first time, he talked a little about how much the song meant to him, about how much the producers and session band loved it when he first performed it to them. He talked about how the song meant the most to him lyrically, how it was his favourite song on the album, and how natural it was for him to call these gigs the Flicker Sessions. Then he played the song, and the room fell completely silent. For a song that is relatively calm and quiet, and a perfect opportunity to proclaim your love for Niall, there was hardly a scream at all. Once it was over, the room erupted into the loudest cheers of the whole night so far and you could see on Niall’s face just how proud he was to have played this song and to have received such a response. His face lit up, he turned to his band mates, and everyone in the room shared that moment. Knowing that he was appreciated as an artist, and that his favourite song would soon become a favourite for many others. That was the best part of the entire night.
Things I will never get sick of reading in 8th year fics…
Harry giving Draco his wand back, their fingers lingering at the hand off
8th year shared common room
Harry and Draco being assigned as roommates
And at first its so awkward and strained but then they realize if they stop fighting about everything they actually get along fairly well
that moment Harry sees Draco in his pajamas for the first time; its early morning and Draco’s hair is falling around his face in soft looking wisps, there are pillow lines on his cheek and he looks younger, softer somehow, and its the first time Harry has ever seen him without any facade. It makes him question everything he thinks he knows about the other boy.
Or the first time Draco sees Harry asleep, and of course he’s used to seeing Harry casual and relaxed so its not even the sight of him curled in his bed in just a pair of pajama pants and a worn Chudley Canons shirt that throws him off kilter, it’s just that he’s not used to seeing him so open. It does something to Draco, watching Harry’s face as he sleeps, hes so exposed laying there without the brave face he puts on for everyone else. It makes something inside of him break.
MIDNIGHT SEEKERS GAMES
which ofc lead to each one of them trying not to notice what the other one looks like with flushed cheeks and windswept hair; what they look like when they’re really free and happy and how much it shocks them to realize that they want to be able to make the other one look that happy too
Party Games Trope need I say more
Harry helping Draco learn how to cast a Patronus
Harry and Draco comforting each other from nightmares because its so much easier to talk about it in the middle of the night when no one can see you, as if the darkness protects you from your truths
EVERYTHING. Seriously give me every damn thing about 8th year and Harry and Draco growing and healing and finally being free to be teenagers and have fun and be silly and goof around and discover themselves and find love and finally, fucking finally, find happiness; to find each other.

I know I am late, but I had to point this out. There had been a lot of speculations about dnp sharing a room. The original idea was vegasphan’s. I just decided to put it all together with some dates. If you want more proof or the measurements of Phil’s room or some other information, got to their blog
One of the biggest points was tweet posted by Phil on the 18th of June, 2017. The tweet wrote, “Just saw a centipede scuttle under my bed so I guess it’s time to move to antarctica.” A picture of the said centipede caught in a jar was tweeted, with the headline, “I just got in a glass,” on the same day. This wouldn’t be anything significant, except the flooring looked very similar to the one in Dan’s room. Some people, however, denied it by saying that dnp might have the same flooring. That couldn’t be the case because on May 7th, 2017, Phil posted a video ‘Do I Have ASMR?’ in his new bedroom, in the video you can see white flooring to the right of Phil’s bed. If this a carpet, then it was obviously well measured, since the carpet touches the wall and there are no gaps or bumps. We can assume that this carpet covers the whole floor because it was so well measured, if it was a half carpet or a carpet that covers only the middle of the room, it wouldn’t be touching the wall. Otherwise it wouldn’t be symmetrical. Dan has showed us in his recent stream, called ‘am i STILL an emo??’, that at least half of his room has a brown flooring that looks like the flooring in Phil’s tweet. That means that Phil’s tweet was about Dan’s bed, and he called it his own bed. The centipede couldn’t have run off to Dan’s bedroom, before being caught because despite being clumsy Phil could catch a centipede, before it travelled up the stairs into another room. Especially since the first tweet was made at 6:10 am and the second at 6:17 am.
Another clue was Dan’s reluctance to show us his bedroom in his recent stream. He brushed off a request, saying that his room was not aesthetic enough. He talked about not having decoration, but he seemed fine showing one half of the room. His biggest reason was not having any plants because they died from never seeing the sun, as he never opened the curtains. This should have also been a problem with his old room but he had no problem with sharing it with the internet. Unless Dan got a habit of not opening curtains recently, he shouldn’t have had any problem with showing us his bedroom. All of his decoration moved to their new flat so his bedroom couldn’t be that different unless their is someone sharing his bedroom. Phil has packed all of his decorations, and his bedroom looks almost exactly the same, logically so should Dan’s, unless they are sharing the bigger room. Some people could argue that he just hasn’t finished unpacking, but we haven’t seen any boxes in their recent streams and videos, and on half of his room, we saw, was furnishes and decorated. They announced on Phil’s channel that they would be moving on the 25th of April, 2017. Phil made his first video in his new furnished room on the 18th of June, 2017. Dan’s stream in which he refused to show his room was made on the 25th of July. More than a month after Phil’s showed his room with decorations and furniture, and more than 3 month after their moving out announcement. If this isn’t enough proof, there is more.
Some other points were the fact that Dan’s room is quite large while Phil’s isn’t, from what we have seen in their videos.
There also seemed to be some of Phil’s items in Dan’s room. Phil’s mirror was the one that was the most obvious. It was in Dan’s room which was quite weird, since it couldn’t be a gift. Dan has 2 mirror, already. The other item were, Phil’s grey shoes. Dan, as far as we know, doesn’t have grey shoes, but during the stream, grey shoes were seen on the shoe rack. Dan could have bought grey shoes or had some that he just never wore, but this is one point out of several.
