Monsta X Drabble #2

Drabble: “Can you do a scenario with jinjin from astro or kihyun from monsta x where you’re not really good with romance, like you get awkward with it? Thanks dear!”
Pairing: Yoo Kihyun/Kihyun x Reader

“Why do you always shy away?”

“What?” You looked up from your book, your eyebrows furrowing in confusion as you looked to Kihyun. “I don’t know what you—”

“Come on, y/n,” Kihyun gave you a look as he flopped down on to the bed next to you, grabbing the book from your hands before he narrowed his eyes. “I mean, I want to know if your uncomfortable with it, but you never say anything so—”

“No!” You felt a blush rise to your cheeks, and you quickly shook your head as you looked away. “It’s not that I’m uncomfortable with it, I just…” Your voice trailed off at the end, a deeper red coloring your cheeks before you buried your face into your hands.

“Sorry, what was that?” Kihyun moved closer to you, and he leaned his face towards yours in order to hear your comment. “Y/n, I can’t hear what you’re saying.”

You sighed into your hands, and suddenly you jumped as Kihyun gently grabbed your hands, prying them away from your face. “S-sorry, its just that— I’m kinda… awkward when it gets to romance and stuff of the nature,” You said, gnawing gently on your bottom lip. “It’s not that I don’t love you, because I really do, I’m just… not.. experienced, I guess. It’s just awkward.”

“Oh,” A look of sudden realization flashed across Kihyuns face, and he nodded his head before he grabbed you, pulling your body on to his as he laid down on the bed, a smirk pulling up his lips. “Is that all?”

“I swear, if I hear teasing I will kick you.”

Boggart

The tall wardrobe rattled violently, thumping it’s solid legs against the floor with every jerk. The students around her gazed at it intently, as if the sole reason for the unpredictable movement was about to willingly present itself for all to see.

“Intriguing, yes? Would anyone like to venture a guess as to what’s inside?” Professor Lupin turned to face the class, his eyes finally landing on Dean Thomas after a moments hesitation.

“Is that a boggart, Sir?” Dean asked warily, never meeting the Professor’s eyes, a trait many of the students had apparently developed.

It was most probably because of Professor Lupin’s haggard appearance and lack of confidence that caused the students to shy away from conversing with him as they would with the other teachers, but Hermione wasn’t one for judging people by their looks, and she intended to give the Profesor the same treatment she gave to almost all the Professors at Hogwarts, her utmost respect.

“Excellent, Mr. Thomas. Now, can anyone describe to us what a Boggart looks like?” His eyes then settled on Hermione, who looked rather disheveled and out of place amongst the students.

“No one knows.” She nodded in affirmation at her own answer.

Ron turned to face her and jerked wildly as he noticed their proximity. He shakily pointed a finger at her. “When’d she get here?” He asked Harry, who shrugged in response.

“Boggarts are shape-shifters. They take the shape of whatever a particular person fears most. That’s what makes it so-” Hermione recited, as it was a familiar paragraph from one of the many books she had read over the summer until Lupin rather rudely interrupted.

“Terrifying, yes. Luckily, a very simple charm exists to repel a Boggart. Let’s practice it now, shall we? Without wands, please… Riddikulus!” He made a motion that resembled a conductor for an orchestra, a small smile on his face as the students called out ‘Riddikulus’ in unison. All except for Draco Malfoy and his gang.

“This class is ridiculous.” Draco muttered softly, yet still loud enough for the professor to hear.

“Excellent, Mr Malfoy has graciously volunteered to go first. But you see, the incantation alone is not enough. What really finishes a Boggart off is…laughter. You need to force it to assume a shape you find truly amusing.” Lupin gestured towards Malfoy, summoning him to the front of the class.

Malfoy apprehensively eyed the once again rattling wardrobe, ignoring the scoffs that came from the Gryffindor students. Hermione eyed him sceptically, what could Malfoy possibly be scared of except his precious Father saying no to an extra bedroom? He was a spoilt prat and silently, Hermione felt happy he was being made an example of in front of the whole class.

“What would you say is the thing that frightens you most?” The Professor asked, Draco’s eyes never lifted from the floor in front of him.

“I’m not scared of anything.” Draco muttered, his heart raced at the thought of his worst fears being shown to the class, his inferiors and his enemies. He shrugged it off, before fixing his gaze on the mirrored doors.

“Well, I highly doubt that. Don’t worry, Malfoy, you’re with friends and classmates here, nothing to be embarrassed about.” Lupin spoke softly, flashing a small, genuine smile in the boys direction.

'Friends? Not bloody likely.’ Draco thought.

“Right then, Mr Malfoy. Wand at the ready. One. Two. Three!” Lupin pointed his wand at the wardrobe, and as if on cue, sparks flew from the tip of his wand, striking the doorknob until the door swung open.

A tall man, with long pale blonde hair stepped out of the cupboard. His eyes were narrowed at the boy who shrunk considerably before him.

Draco took a step back, his eyes never wavering from his father’s vicious scowl. Draco began to tremble, it had been a while since his father had looked so deranged with rage, usually triggered by too much fire whiskey and Draco’s cheeky remarks. His mother, Narcissa had almost always taken the blame for Draco’s mistakes, allowing him to escape to his bedroom momentarily whilst his Father screamed horrible insults at the poor woman until he passed out.

He was seven when he first laid eyes on his mother’s hollowed cheeks and sunken eyes. She looked far older than he had ever seen her, not that he spoke that thought aloud. He had learnt from experience never to talk about things which did not concern him, such as his father’s abusive habits and his alcohol abuse, or his mother’s reluctance to leave him and save herself and her son.

Draco didn’t blame his mother, not in the slightest. She was, after all, a woman blinded by publicity, power, and all the gold in the Malfoy vault at Gringotts, which was apparantly worth far more than a few bruises and cuts.

“Think, Malfoy. Think!” Lupin urged him, standing idly beside the wardrobe.

“R-r-riddikulus!” Malfoy stammered as Lucius raised his palm into the air. He flicked his wand and with a crack and a flash of light, his father stumbled back, now donning a ridiculously frilly, pink dress and a pair of bubble gum pink high heels.

The rest of the class roared with laughter as Draco turned his back on his father and stood at the back of the classroom, separated from his fellow Slytherins who refused to look in his direction. Hermione turned to look at him as he slumped defeatedly against the stone wall. She instantly felt a wave of empathy for the boy, as she could only imagine what he had to endure all his life with that small glimpse into his home life.

It was no wonder that Malfoy had became a bully, it’s what his father would have taught him, a family tradition. Although it felt awfully invasive, seeing one of Malfoy’s weaknesses along with the rest of the class, she couldn’t help but wonder why Draco was so scared of the man who always hid behind.

anonymous asked:

Sasuke not shying away from Sakura, and kissing her palm is everything I needed on this fine day- thank you. You're the freaking best!

I was worried that might seem a little OOC…then I thought, you know what? He’s got a hella lot of oxytocin flooding his brain right now. He probably doesn’t even know he’s been a marshmallow…

children we are blessed

Literally just all the sexual things Alexander Hamilton sent to John Laurens


“I love you.”

This one is pretty self explanatory. Men were much more intimate back in the 1700′s, forming bonds that seem very ~gay~ in today’s light. Homosexuality wasn’t a very understood thing back then because rigid moral codes and censured education prevented people from learning more about sexuality.

 But Alexander Hamilton knew.

 He grew up on an island where ‘Sodomites’ (gay people) were dumped and  allowed to mingle with the island population. Alex knew that there was a certain zone of interactions between men that went from being merely friendly to sexual. He clearly steps into the bounds of sexual while fully realizing it.

“In drawing my picture, you will no doubt be civil to your friend; mind you do justice to the length of my nose and don’t forget, that I [- - - - - -].”

Ahhhhhhhhh my son Alex, could you be more explicit? Alex here is obviously referring to his something else (you know) with the knowledge that John Lauren’s knows the size. This sentence right here is basically just one long ;).

 “Your friend” seems to be written teasingly, as if they both know how far from friends they are.

And we can only guess how dirty Alex got in those last six  CUT OUT words.

“Dear Boy” [sent by John Laurens]

John laurens calls his wife his ‘dear girl’, and here he calls Alex his ‘dear boy’.  Moreover, Laurens did not call any other man he ever wrote to as his ‘dear boy’. Laurens seems to see Alex as on the same level, if not higher, as his own wife.

“Did I mean to show my wit? If I did, I am sure I have missed my aim. Did I only intend to [frisk]? In this I have succeeded, but I have done more. I have gratified my feelings, by lengthening out the only kind of intercourse now in my power with my friend.”

This phrase right here I unfortunately do not see a lot when people talk about Alex and John’s letters. This, to me, is one of the most explicit. “Wit” also mean one’s you know what (here I give a nod to the Ravenclaw moto), so Hamilton’s saying he was pretty much just messing around with John the last letter he sent. This is the only sort of “intercourse” he is able to have with John, as they are both so far apart. He is incapable of ‘sexual’ intercourse because of their distance, so he feels he must, in the 18th century way, sext.

“I would invite you after the fall to Albany to be witness to the final consummation.”

As you might have already guessed, Alex is inviting John to a threesome on his wedding night. The idea that Alex feels so at ease inviting John to a threesome with his wife suggests they have already had something going for a long time now. 

“But like a jealous lover, when I thought you slighted my caresses, my affection was alarmed and my vanity piqued. I had almost resolved to lavish no more of them upon you and to reject you as an inconstant and an ungrateful –”

Here Alex compares himself to John’s lover, and a jealous one at that. John seems to be shying away from Alex’s bawdiness, as if realizing how strange their relationships is in retrospect. Alex is scrambling to hang on to him, even though he knows well what are and what happens to Sodomites. He would do anything for John while knowing the consequences. And John is too afraid to join him. And who the hell knows what the last word was.

“And believe me, I am lover in earnest,”

*cough cough* looks like John knows exactly what happens when Alex’s feeling frisky.

“She [Eliza] loves you a l'americaine not a la francoise.”

The French were renowned for their relaxed stance on extramarital love affairs, while Americans were more Puritan-minding and thought love affairs only should happen in church-sanctioned marriages. Thus Eliza has an a l’americaine love of John Laurens, rather than an a la francoise.

“You will be pleased to recollect in your negotiations that I have no invincible antipathy to the maidenly beauties & that I am willing to take the trouble of them upon myself.”

*cough* this sentence is a bit confusing, and could be taken a few ways. What I infer from this is that Alexander Hamilton is willing, and John knows this, to assume an air of femininity because he finds no fault with it. It was commonly noted by people who wrote of Hamilton that he was very feminine in comparison with other men of his day. Alex’s femininity seems to please John, the topic even having been discussed between the two in ‘negotiations’.

“My ravings are for your own bosom” Alex desperately misses Laurens’ intimate contact in a way that, in my opinion, could never be mistaken as simply friendship. Alex literally wants to be held by John. How fucking heartbreaking is that.

“Yrs for ever”

Ok, this one isn’t sexual, but I had to add it because it is so heartbreaking. This was Alex’s last farewell note to John. That is, if he even received it. He died shortly after Alex sent the letter; whether he read the farewell or not is all lost to history. Alex loved John so much, despite the fact that both already had a wife. He would have always loved him, even if they had grown apart…

That’s it folks: time for me to cry.

What’s been going on in this house isn’t just some affair. No. No, it isn’t.

Manchester attacks

You know what pisses me off about the Manchester attacks?

It was children that were the victims.

Innocent children’s lives were taken that night.

Imagine how excited they must have been coming home from primary and their parents getting them ready for the concert.

Imagine the students that had just finished their English exam or geography exam just enjoying the music hopeful to meet their idol that night.

Or the people who travelled all over the country because it was the closest place they could book to see Ariana.

Just imagine the sheer fucking terror that they must have felt in that moment. The uncertainty that they might not see their families again. It sickens me.

It’s even worse that people are trying to use it as an excuse to justify their beliefs about people who are islamic.

The religion isn’t barrbaric and the people who practice their faith just like any other person across the world who are entitled to practice their faith isn’t the reason why this terrible event happened.

The people who take the beliefs of others and bend it to fit their own agenda are the barrbaric ones. In any religion you will find people willing to go far enough to bend the teachings of a religion to commit such vile acts so they feel justified.

What happened last night was earth breaking for everyone across the UK and I (as well as many of you) hope that this doesn’t make us weaker and that we finally stand up for ourselves and not shy away from this bullshit that is commited everyday.

Thank you to everyone that helped save everyone in that horrendous situation and to the people of Manchester willing to open their own homes and car doors to complete strangers to make sure they’re safe and that they will be reunited with their family this is an awful event and I hate to have seen too many innocent lives lost in just one night.

The same thing can be said for the terrorism that was seen in Marawi, Bangkok, and Syria.

(Boi I am so mad and so upset for everyone involved I can’t even get everything I want to say down)

i am so incredibly proud of jimin, like i can’t even begin to put it into words. this kid has been so self concious about his singing for a long time, to the point where he hasn’t even put out a full cover by himself, and to see him sit there and sing a whole song by himself without shying away or getting flustered, is a huge step forward in his career and in his confidence. i really hope to see more of this confidence soon, and actually have him put out a cover so that all of BTS & ARMY can praise him like he deserves, because honestly his singing is one of the most angelic things i’ve ever heard.

Girls that the houses don't talk about
  • Slytherin Girls: Telling the boys over and over that ambition doesn't equal the need to look perfect. Walking to breakfast with sleep still in their eyes and wearing baggy jumpers under their robes. When asked why they don't "act more like Slytherins," they tell people that cunning doesn't require aesthetic.
  • Gryffindor girls: Shying away from loud noises, afraid of getting in trouble, of the vicious stares of the older students. Never raising their hand in class, or speaking out of turn. When asked why they don't "act more like Gryffindors" they reply that Chivalry doesn't require you to be boisterous.
  • Hufflepuff girls: with gaunt, hollow cheeks and tired eyes. That never go into the kitchens with the others. Who wear clothes three sizes too big. With sharp tongues and eyes that glare at those who criticise them. When asked why they don't "Act more like Hufflepuffs" they reply that Dedication does not require extroversion.
  • Ravenclaw Girls: Who cry when they're set more homework, that catch themselves holding their breath in the girl's bathroom so that no one will hear their sobs. That Try to spend hours in the library, but can't make the information sink in. That spend too much time worrying, and not enough time preparing for exams. When asked why they don't "Act more like Ravenclaws" they reply that a love of knowledge does not always require academic success.
Let me tell y'all punks something about ACOWAR (spoiler FREE I promise)

I LOVED this book for one glaring reason (that goes beyond how much more Azriel we got, but I digress).

That reason is the gray area. There is SO. MUCH. moral gray area in ACOWAR. Characters that I admittedly thought were PERFECT and could do no wrong did wrong. Characters I thought were pure evil did right.

SJM portrayed a beautiful picture of humanity in a fantastical world. Not one of us is morally right or morally wrong, point blank. We are MESSY, and so was every character in ACOWAR. MESSY. And she didn’t shy away from portraying them as such. The characters moved all over the spectrum of right and wrong and that’s just LIFE.

The gray area is a GOOD THING. Now is it going to incite a million and one arguments on this platform concerning the age old argument of “oh so and so did this when they should have done this because I say so and since they didn’t they’re A PURE EVIL ABUSER SATAN WORSHIPPER BLAH BLAH BLAH.” And that part sucks. But real people are messy and all over the spectrum. And so is ACOWAR and I LOVE IT.

That clip. You have no idea what it meant to people who have somehow broken up with the religion they grew up in. None whatsoever.
I had that exact same conversation with my mother. “You don’t think I can be a good person without praying 5 times a day?” I’m mindblown.

The fact that Julie did that. The fact that she has given me a character that I can relate to so deeply. Wow.

I have no words.
