I’m about to spam you all with The Mummy gifsets because my mom just told me that our mean, grumpy, ridiculous orange tabby that we’ve had for 15 years passed away last night.
Her name was Kitten because she was a tiny 3-day old kitten that I agreed to foster and we weren’t planning on keeping her. But she fell ill and we nursed her back to health and couldn’t give her up.
She was cantankerous but always let me cuddle her. She loved my dog, Maggie, and I can still picture her as an itty-bitty kitten sitting on my lap with her little paws on Maggie’s muzzle while Maggie gave her a good sniff.
Kitten came when she was called and she had MOXIE. Scores of it.
So…Mummy gifsets because I’m sad and I’m an ocean away from my mom who is also sad.
I wear sunshine on my lips and stars on my nails. My hair is a garden of roses that blossoms in a different color every morning. I drink galaxies for breakfast and use ribbons of moonbeams sprinkled with comets as laces for my shoes. My eyelids are the wings of hummingbirds and my skin, the velvet blackness of night seasoned with stardust. My breath is the scent of wildflowers and magic. And I wear music as jewelry around my neck.
You’ve known me as the dreamer who lives within you and the creativity you lost as you grew up. I helped you discover your imaginary friends and whispered in your ear to create your own world. I replaced your ordinary eyes with kaleidoscopic diamonds and your nightmares with dreams of flying. You still see me in children: the five-year-olds who pray to the Easter bunny and the eight-year-olds who wear rose-colored contact lens, viewing the world as a big bundle of joy where everyone is happy. You wish I’d never left you when your parents fought and got a divorce or when your first love broke your heart into pieces. You think I faded inside you little by little every time your teacher said you’d never amount to anything in life or during those sleepless nights when you felt unloved and believed you no longer belonged anywhere.
You wish you could trade all your ‘growing up’ for just one more day of staying a child. To feel my soft fluttering kiss on your salty, world-weary cheeks as I lead you once again into the world you created and then abandoned. And to help you rediscover the pirate ships and treasure chests hidden in scudding masses of clouds. To just be a child again, nothing else.
You think you outgrew me when your turned thirteen when all your friends seemed more interested in their own bodies than your fairytale stories about flying imps and green-skinned witches. You let the world turn you angry, cynical and disappointed. You learnt that not all people are good and that rainbows don’t really lead to leprechauns’ pots of gold. Growing up had changed you and you blamed me for letting you down.
With every day of disbelieving, I was vanishing within you until one day I was nowhere to be found. Your head full of dreams wilted as real-life responsibilities mounted on your shoulders and left you on your knees. Soon, I became just another tattered memory you remembered occasionally on bus rides back home and sighed at.
But one evening, you stop to look at the moon. It is deliciously glowing and hangs crescent in the sky. You casually envision a Siamese kitten sitting on the inner curve of the moon with its kinky tail waving at the stars. And just like that, you hear me laugh. That laugh you hadn’t heard for years; that laugh that still rang with innocent delight and childlike wonder.
I say to you, “Remember, I’m the dreamer within you. The bottle of rainbows in an ocean under a rainstorm. The sweet clusters of dew in a field of parched grass. You’ll never lose me, you just have to find me. But I’m always there.”
You then realize you’ve been wrong this whole time. It wasn’t me who had let you down, but yourself.
sports: star quarterback of the uni’s football team!!!
clubs: joined math club and at first everyone was like,,,,,are you in the right place??? but shownu was just like “i like math.” and opened up his stat textbook and started doing worksheets for fun. also it’s not a club, but he’s the RA of his dorm floor
first things first: everyone always gets the wrong impression of him. like,,,,,,,when they see him in the halls or walking on campus their first thought is like “oh. he’s totally an athlete.” which is correct,,,,but then they’re like “he got in on a sports scholarship,,,,,he probably isn’t that smart,,,,,,,doesn’t he rely only on his muscles?”
shownu is incredibly smart and when people ask what his major is, expecting to hear him say something like “undecided” shownu very calmly and clearly goes “statistics. mathematics is thrilling to me.” with the most serious expression
that if you didn’t know him all that well you’d think he was like??? mocking uptight math majors???? but he’s not,,,,,,,,,,he really actually loves math
and he’s so naturally gifted at it that he ended up having to do an independent study on probable theory because,,,,,probably theory I and II were too easy for him,,,,,,,
the stat teachers absolutely love him because he’s so forward and realistic about everything, he like,,,,,,,,he embodies math
i know that sounds funny to say given that he towers over everyone in his class, has shoulders as broad as the ocean, and can probably lift three desks up in one hand
but the way he does things, methodically and without error,,,,,almost robotic,,,,,,is very,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Math
but don’t get me wrong, shownu has his charms
he’s actually super,,,,,like,,,,,,fatherly like he’s the parent friend of his group because he’s so realistic
but it can also be kind of funny because wonho and minhyuk will be talking about a party the sociology majors want to throw and shownu will be like “as long as everyone is back at the dorm by 11.”
and maybe it’s the RA in him speaking but minhyuk is just like “shownu,,,,,it’s a party,,,,,,it starts at 11 not ends at 11″ and shownu is like “that isn’t a good idea if you have morning class. don’t you have morning class minhyuk? i would recommend you not go to the party, you get grouchy with no sleep.”
and he means it with the best intentions but he sounds like a dad from a movie policing his young son and minhyuk is like I DO NOT GET GROUCHY and wonho is laughing his ass off like minhyuk,,,,,,shownu’s right you’ll just throw a fit in the morning and minhyuk is like no wonho not you too what are you my parenTS
it’s also really cute that shownu loves to like,,,,do housework. he’s pretty good at cooking (he calls his mom when he needs a recipe or hyungwon bothers him enough to get him to cook something specific) and he likes keeping things clean
sometimes people find him with his glasses on, studying a cookbook that’s called like ‘housewives homey hotpot recipes’ wearing an apron he got as a gift from jooheon and it’s just,,,,,,,endearing
because under that he’s got like sweats on with a fitted t-shirt and there’s his muscles,,,,,,you know Being Big
one of the football players on the team joked that shownu should bake some cookies for them if they won the nationals and when they did shownu actually baked a whole bunch of them
and they were really good
even the coach complimented them
and like no offense but whoever said boys can’t be athletic but also adorable-y good at frosting cookies into the shape of little footballs was a liar. shownu exists
most often, when no one is looking, shownu can let himself go a little and like im not saying he breaks out into song in the middle of his dorm dancing to shakira’s hips don’t lie like there’s no tomorrow
but if ioi’s pick me comes up on the TV and no one is around to watch like,,,,,,,,,,perhaps he does the choreography JUST A BIT
shownu doing the pick me dance while flipping pancakes though anyWAY
he’s an all-around amazing student, athlete, and friend. like he can juggle practicing for a game, data analysis homework, and making sure changkyun doesn’t bring anything from lab into his dorm all at once,,,,,,,,we should all strive to be students like him
calls his mom every weekend and tells her everything he did to the last detail like,,,,,,,,,what an actual big soft teddy bear
but yes you,,,,,,,,,don’t know shownu at all really. like the mathematics department is far from your department and you’ve never really crossed paths with him
you have seen his photo all over the school website, seeing as though he’s always there in some article about football
and you don’t really care, even though every one of your friends is always going on about how dreamy of man the star quarterback of the uni really is
but you don’t have much time, you’ve been juggling a whole bunch of schoolwork and whatnot that dating,,,,,,,,like,,,,,,,,,,,what,,,,,,,,,,,is that,,,,
plus big guys into sports were always loud and too self confident (from what you saw in movies) so you weren’t exactly interested in getting to know more about him
speaking of juggling a lot,,,,,you also had another worry on your mind aside from school work and that happened to be the stray kitten you’d found outside the uni’s library over a week ago
luckily the weather had been nice and clear so you’d been able to safely sneak over to feed the little kitten during the night
always apologizing to it that you couldn’t take it inside with you, your RA would have your neck if you got caught with an animal
but see,,,,,,,this weekend it was supposed to rain. like,,,,,,really hard
there was a weather alert on all the roadways and people with saturday classes were all whining about how they’d have to make a dash through the storm to get across campus for class
but all your mind fixated on was,,,,,,,,the kitten in that little flimsy cardboard box wouldn’t last out in such heavy rain
so even if your RA found out,,,,you were sure that maybe MAYBE you could smuggle the little guy in through your hoodie and keep him inside until the rain passed. then you planned on putting up posters to see if anyone had lost him
so, on the evening before the big weekend storm you threw on the biggest hoodie you can find, take some canned cat food as bait, and go out to collect the little guy
thankfully when you got there it looked like no one had yet found him,,,, you could hear his little mewing from the box and you were like hey!!! im glad you’re ok, taking out the food and opening it up
but before you could put the can into the box you felt someone behind you, their shadow towering over yours and you froze
“what are you doing?”
they asked slowly and you were like shit ,,,,,,,shit is it an RA??? slowly you turned and in the slight darkness you couldn’t see exactly who it was
but then the person was leaning over, their big hand going toward the box with the kitten
and you grabbed their hand, trying to wrench it away but,,,,,,,,,,,,,you literally couldn’t it was like grabbing a wall why heck were they so strong??
but they weren’t shaking you off either and when you locked eyes with this huge, strong person you were like wait -
and the boy looking back at you,,,,,,you’d seen that face before but where,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,oh,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,SHOWNU???
and he blinks, looking down at your hand still around his wrist and you’re like UM and you drop it and you’re like “plEASe,,,,,,don’t take the kitten away the storm tomorrow is coming and i just want to keep it safe please don’t hu,,,,,,hurt it,,,,,”
and shownu tilts his head and he’s like “hurt it? i was going to take it back to my dorm.”
and you’re like ??????? excuse me no I was going to take it back to my dorm
but you’re not about to say that to this tall, muscular man
and you’re like “o-oh,,,,,,,,well i,,,,i also,,,,,want,,,,,,wanted,,,,,to take it,,,,,,um,,,,,,,”
and you kind of shuffle a bit, feeling uncomfortable because again : you’re alone with this person who could overpower you and it’s just natural to be afraid
but then you see shownu carefully pick up the kitten, sitting back on his knees and holding it against his chest
and it’s so tiny,,,,,,,,it fits into his palm
and he’s like “i didn’t know someone else knew about him” and you’re like,,,,,oh ive known for a week,,,,,,but i didn’t know if i should bring him to a shelter or if someone lost him so,,,,,
and shownu nods and he’s like “would it be better if i took him or you” and you’re like “how much of an micromanager is your RA?” and shownu is “im the RA of my floor”
and you’re like WELL THEN YOU WIN MY RA WOULD MURDER ME FOR HAVING A PET
and shownu can tell by the look on your face when he gets up is one that clearly says ‘i don’t want to part ways with this adorable kitten’
and so he puts out his hand and he’s like “,,,,,,,,wanna hold him a bit”
and you’re like,,,,,,,yes,,,,and you cuddle the little guy up to your chest and you’re like “oh, take this!” and you use your free hand to pass shownu the cat food you’d brought along and you’re like “that way you don’t have to buy another one for tomorrow ^^”
and since it’s dark and you’re cooing at the kitten you don’t see how shownu holds the can, looking up at you rather softly because of how sweet that was of you
but when you pass him the kitten back you sigh and you’re like “ill trust you with him, but after the storm,,,,,,,i was thinking of making lost flyers for him or something,,,,”
shownu doesn’t say anything, but he nods.
opening up his hoodie, you see that he’s got a white sleeveless tank under it and once again there are those damn muscles everyone always drooling about
,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,and they do look nice,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
and he like puts the kitten in the pocket of the tank and you’re like it’s so small it fits or maybe it’s because the shirt is large because shownu is large???? whatever he’s the math major here
and you’re like “,,,,,,,,,ill be going then”
and shownu is like “,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,after the storm,,,,,you’ll see him again”
and you don’t know if he’s like offering for you to come and see the kitten or if he’s just making a statement but suddenly some of the fear and nervousness you had about him and his ,,,, largeness,,,,, is gone
like,,,,,,,,,,,you can’t believe this but is shownu,,,,,,,the shownu from the football team who you’d assume would be cocky and mean,,,,,,,,is actually a Softie
(ding ding ding HE IS A SOFTIE)
and although you spend the weekend trying to finish up an essay and a project proposal ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,shownu holding that small kitten in his arms keeps flashing through your memory
and on monday you can’t help but subconsciously look for him everywhere, even making a purposeful trip toward the math department
when suddenly, just as you’re about to give up and head to dorms you feel someones hand on your shoulder
and you nEARLY juMP out of your skin with shock but then you hear a familiar, slightly monotone voice go
“the kitten is ok, do you want to see him?”
and you turn to see shownu, dressed up in a suit, hair slicked back and a briefcase in his other hand and you’re like,,,,,,,?????????
and you can’t help but be like “a-are you going to work?”
and he’s like “my minor is business management. there was a mock interview today.”
and you’re like OH,,,,,,fancy,,,,,,but also why is that suit so fitted ok not the point the kitten THE KITTEN
and you’re like “where is he? did you put him back near the library?”
and shownu shakes his head and motions for you to follow him and you figure out quite quickly that you’re going over to the dorms and you’re like ??? “is the kitten still in your room”
and shownu, who heads for the stairs of his building nods and you’re like gdi the elevators work fine but ok
and when you get to his room, the door is open and you’re surprised to see that the room is really clean,,,,,,,,,like way cleaner than your dorm
and shownu sets down the briefcase and takes off the jacket, rolling up the sleeves of his white button down
and you’re like,,,trying not to stare, looking at everything else except him
and he pulls the little cardboard box off his desk and into his lap and picks the kitten up and you can see that the little guy is happy
meowing out loud and nuzzling its tiny face against shownu’s hand
and shownu holds it out and he’s like “here”
and you take the kitten, sitting down on the bed beside him and you’re like “it looks like he’s gaining weight!!! im so happy he’s healthy,,,,,”
and you see from the corner of your eye, a small smile tug at shownu’s lips
and then you see how the corners of his eyes crinkle just a bit along with the happy expression on his face
and wow ok everything you said before about not finding him adorable ,,,,,, weLL ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
but you’re startled when you hear someone come in and another boy is like “oh hyung, am i interrupting something?”
and shownu gets up and he’s like “jooheon, this is the other person who took care of the stray with me”
and you put down the kitten to introduce yourself to jooheon who looks you up and down and then shifts his eyes to shownu
and he’s like quiet for a moment before going “,,,,,,,,,,,,are you two a thing?”
and you’re like WHAT and shownu, with no change in expression is like “what do you mean?”
and jooheon looks to you for an answer (since his hyung is really so damn dense) and you’re like “n-n-n-no we just met on friday,,,,im just here to see the kitten,,,,,,”
and jooheon, who seemingly has a sparkle in his eye is like “huh, so how do you like shownu?” and you’re like ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,he’s??????/nice
and shownu is like why are you asking them that
and jooheon just shrugs, shoving his hands into his pockets and he’s like “that kitten is lucky to have two caring parents like you”
and you’re like PARENTS and shownu is like “kittens can’t have human parents”
and jooheon is like i gtg see minhyuk and kihyun right now immediately and you’re like who???? and jooheon is already gone as shownu sits back down on the bed and is like “he’s going to go gossip, ignore it”
and you’re like gossip???? about????/ us???????? oh my g OD??
but shownu is back to mindlessly playing with the kitten and tbh who cares about anything when there is a kitten involved
and somehow at the end of this, you find yourself with shownu’s number in your phone and you guys agree on planning someway to get this kitten back to their owners or to a good shelter
and you find yourself texting him,,,,,,,,,,about other things as well
maybe it’s because one day he asks ‘have you eaten’ and you end up asking about his mock interviews and stat homework
and shownu isn’t much of a talker, his texts are rather short and to the point too
but ,,,,,,,,,,,,, shownu is an extremely good caretaker
like whenever you’re over to see the kitten and work on making flyers with him
shownu makes sure you’re not hungry or too cold or too hot and if he plays music he keeps the volume low so as to not disturb you and he’s always telling you to sit at his desk and work on a flyer while he takes the uncomfortable floor
and he even starts to pick up on your habits like,,,,,you always forget your phone under your bag before you leave and he’s gotten into routine of picking it up off the desk and slipping it into your bag before you go
and he tells you that he bought the same brand of cat food you get for the kitten since you always bring it over
and then he tells you to work hard for your test coming up that you told him like a week ago
and shownu,,,,,before he even knows it himself jooheon is sitting with him in the dorm one night as shownu is finishing up the last flyer of his
and jooheon is like “you really like them right?”
and shownu is like “they’re a kind person”
and jooheon rolls his eyes and is like “yes, but you like them,,,,,,,a lot.”
and shownu stops coloring and he’s like “no i don’t.”
and jooheon nearly drops his phone on his face laughing and he’s like “hyung, you’re literally drawing cartoon kittens for this person and you even bought snacks that they like for when they come over. you like them.”
shownu kind of just looks down at the coloring pencil in his hand. ‘lost cat’ written in bold letters, clumsy kitten faces he’s been trying to get better at drawing scribbled across the paper
and he’s like,,,,,,,,,,oh
and you don’t want to admit it to yourself but god you even find yourself looking over at the football field as you’re walking past it to get off campus and go into the city to hang up flyers
and you can hear the coach yell from so far away and,,,,,,you can see him. shownu,,,,,in his uniform running across the field
and he looks amazing in the uniform and you’re like “Get IT TOGETHER” @ yourself
and you focus on putting up the flyers
but that night you get a text for shownu and it’s like “were you ok today?”
and you’re like yeah!! i put up a lot of flyers but there’s some more left over that i want to put around campus too
and shownu texts back that he’ll help you and that you guys should meet at 1 tomorrow
and you get up immediately because right. you need to wear something nice,,,,,,,or do you,,,,,,,,,,,it’s just shownu,,,,,,,,,,,,but,,,,,
and you get back into bed and you’re like it’s nothing. you two are just hanging out because of this kitten that’s it
but when you see shownu waiting for you, leaning against the wall of the library in casual ripped up jeans, white t-shirt and bedhead hair you’re like oooooohhhhh here we go again with my heart skipping a beat and whatnot
and you go around campus with him and people are doing doubletakes, but shownu seems used to the attention and you get the remaining flyers up when suddenly shownu is like “we should put one up there at the top of the bulletin but i can’t reach”
and you’re like well if you can’t reach neither can i
and shownu is like “get on my shoulders.”
and you’re like,,,,,,,,,,,,,,hold up
and he’s like crouching down and patting his back and you’re turning a bit red
and you’re like “i,,,,,,don’t think-”
but he’s seriously not getting back up and you’re like, taking a breath and you’re like ok. it’ll be fast,,,,,
but wow ok getting on his shoulders and feeling his strong arms lock around you safely like GOD dammit why is he a perfect strong person
and you tape up the flyer and shownu lets you down so gently
and you’re just so embarrassed and flustered and shownu is like “we’re all done.”
and you’re like,,,,,,,,,, “th–thank you for,,,,,,,all your help” and shownu is like “we found him together, we should take care of him together”
and you’re like TO g,,,,ether,,,,but you’re also like yeah!!!! but in your head you’re like after we find his owner though,,,,won’t that together not be important anymore??
but shownu puts down his head suddenly and he’s like “jooheon told me something funny.”
and you’re like ??? “like a joke?” and shownu is still not looking up at you and he’s like
“,,,,,,,,he told me i liked you”
and you’re like OH,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,um do you?
and shownu, running his hand through his hair picks up his head and is like ,,,,,,,,,,, “would that be alright?”
and he looks like a little shy kitten himself, his shy smile, his usually hard to read expression soft and his voice shaking just ever so slightly even though it’s usually deep and clear
and you want to be like is it alright????? it’s great????? it’s the best thing in the WORLD
but you’re also like i need to compose myself and you’re like “of course, is it,,,,,,alright if i like you too?”
and shownu straightens up, nodding slowly and you’re like WELL,,,,,that’s good it’s alright for both of us that’s,,,,a+,,,,,
but then you feel shownu’s hand against your cheek and you’re like oh what is he- is he going to kiss-
but before he can even lean in he stops and is like “no no no we shouldn’t in public”
and you stop for a second before bursting into giggles because fkhdsd how is he so shy and proper ,,,, it’s college everyone’s practically in each others pants all the time but,,,,,,,,it’s nice
and when shownu and you get back to his dorm, shownu announces that he’s going to kiss you for real this time
and you’re like you don’t have to say it,,,,you can just do it and he’s like im sorry i just wanted to check and you’re like ksdhgjfs how are you SO CUTE
and you feel so safe and protected when he pulls you into his arms by your waist and nuzzles his nose against yours before softly pressing his lips to your own
and you’re like,,,,,,,wow,,,,,,,,,he’s so,,,,,,,,careful with how he kisses it’s like he doesn’t want to break you
and you literally have to be the one to take the lead and shownu when he pulls back has got wide eyes and you’re like “too much??” but he just shakes his head and leans in again
jooheon walks in on you two basically making out and he’s like “i KNEW IT” and you want to say something but shownu is too busy telling jooheon to get out while also trying to pull your shirt back down
and it’s a mess
but do believe the entire campus knows two seconds later that you and shownu are an Item
mostly because jooheon looked so giddy that kihyun was just like “oh shownu is dating now?” and jooheon was like HOW DID YOU KNOW I DIDNT EVEN SAY ANYTHING
and kihyun was like ur face gave it away loser
and you get a flurry of texts from literally everyone you know on campus demanding you tell them the story of how you met and how in the world you scored THE QUARTERBACK of the uni’s basketball team
and you’re like “we meet,,,,,,,because we’re both good people also yes he’s the quarterback but did you know he’s a stat major and also a pretty ok cook he’s actually a lot more than just a buff dude appreciate my MAN”
and you both still concentrate on hoping to find the owner of the lost kitten,,,,and it’s only after you get a call from a very VERY happy mother saying she’d been looking for her daughters kitten who managed to escape only days after they’d brought her home
do you and shownu succeed in your mission to save the kitten and celebrate with a cute date to the nearby diner were you sit beside him, his arm around your shoulder and you feed him fries and you guys look through the pictures you’d taken of the kitten before you gave him back to the mom
and shownu has a lot of games thanks to how popular the uni’s football team is and even though you’ve never been a big fan of the sport - you go whenever you can and watch shownu intently, getting worked up when he falls over or gets tackled
and when you see him after, you practically push through the crowds to get to him
and when you do, he has to literally catch you because you’re like “are you hurt???? im so worried that tackle looked so painful???”
and shownu just smiles, kissing your forehead and telling you he’s fine
but shownu does the same with you,,,,,tbh if he doesn’t see you for a week and you finally meetup just to cuddle under the blankets and study for your classes you hear him whisper against your hair
that you’re so important, and that not having you near him makes him feel like he can’t be completely calm
that you relax him, with kisses to his lips that remind him that you’re ok
and it’s minhyuk who remembers you and shownu’s 100th day and he gets everyone together to throw you guys a surprise party
and you and shownu both have no clue until you walk into the common room and the lights come up and there’s wonho in a party hat, kihyun throwing confetti in your face and hyungwon holding a cake. jooheon puts headbands with hearts on them on your head and changkyun puts on some sappy love song and everyone is chanting that you two kiss
and you’re both like “we forgot today was our 100th dat” and minhyuk is like LMAO BUT I DIDNT NOW KISS wonho get the camera ready
and it’s cute you and shownu kiss, getting embarrassed because it’s infront of everyone while jooheon is like “they didn’t look that embarrassed when i walked in on the- ok hyung please don’t kill mE”
and you guys are supposed to cut the cake but you get some icing on shownu’s cheek and he puts some on your nose
and you guys even up with a mess
but it’s fun, all your friends and his friends are there supporting you
and, like the good RA he is, shownu ends the party before midnight and minhyuk is like “dammit i wanted to karoke love will go on for you two but whatever”
and once everyone is gone jooheon ‘casually’ lets shownu know that he’ll be staying over at minhyuk’s place tonight
and shownu is holding you as you’re together in his dorm,,,,and you’re like “a good RA should tell me i can’t be here,,,,,,,,” and shownu is like “i don’t want to be a good RA, right now”
and tbh,,,,,,shownu is strong and looks like he could break wood with his hand but his touch is literally the most tender,,,,,,compassionate,,,,,feeling
and his lips over yours makes you feel that he’s kissing a treasure, something so sacred and important
and you really feel connected to him because shownu never lets your hand go
and after he’s kissing up your jaw, pushing your hair back from your sweaty forehead
and you just can’t with how amazing he is you literally get on top and start kissing him again and shownu is like!!!!!!!!!!! but he isn’t going to say no,,,,,,,he really loves your enthusiasm
and you wear shownu’s jersey as a joke one day but shownu seriously gets addicted to the sight and keeps trying to get you to wear it again
and you guys aren’t a PDA, loud couple you’re just subtle and caring and shownu prioritizes you like the angelic boyfriend he is
and you’ll be like “oh i really crave korean food” and shownu will be like “korean food it is” and changkyun is like “i want burger-” and shownu is like “korean food changkyun, korean. food.”
and you’re like im sorry to changkyun as shownu takes your hand and changkyun is just like,,,,,,,we’re not shownu’s number ones anymore sniffles
even if you don’t do sports you got a matching tracksuit with shownu and he would most definitely be like “let’s start working out together”
except his routine could kill any normal person and so you’re like “please spare me, but i will try my best”
shownu really loves going to the beach but everytime you guys go as a group he’s like “wear a hoodie”
and you’re like “it’s 90 degrees out”
and shownu is like,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, “still. put a towel over yourself” and you’re like oh my god
studies his stat homework in his sleep and you’re like ,,,,,,,,,,, shownu please shush
the kind of boyfriend where even if you burnt all the food you made him he’d eat it with a smile and ask for more and you’re his absolute everything. you’re his warmth
(literally called you the warmth of his heart and hyungwon was like bro,,,,,that’s so poetic,,,,,,,,,,,i never knew you had it in you)
There was some tension in the sewing circle today. Susan told me that my burlap creations are making the rest of the group “uncomfortable” and to please stitch something more “pleasant” for my next project. Upset that my artistic methods were being called into question, I lashed out in a fit of anger. I hotly informed Susan that I’d overheard our fellow circle members Agatha and Carol making fun of her favorite sweater, the pink one with a bedazzled collar and an image of a kitten sitting inside a teacup printed across the chest.
This was a lie. It was I who had secretly mocked the sweater.
Now Agatha and Carol have been dismissed from our group, which is unfortunate because Carol always brought cucumber sandwiches. Sigh. I can’t help but feel that this is somehow all Batman’s fault.
Hoseok Genre: Smut Word Count: 3430-ish When faced with Jung Hoseok, how could you not be a tease? Just a little?
A/N: There might definitely be a second part. Involving that goddam dancer’s body. I’ve been struck and killed by the Hobi train, along with @yoongis-sass, and it is to be war between us. A fic war. Oops.
You loved all the boys. They were your closest friends and brothers, and even if you didn’t get to spend as much time with them as you would other friends, they were really the only friends you needed.
Especially Hoseok. But in a different way. You were, without a doubt, 300% in love with Hoseok. His smiles, his laughter, his warm hugs and unfailing kindness. His unintentional and incredible sexiness. Just to begin with.
And when faced with Jung Hoseok, you couldn’t help but be a tease. Just a little.
Just a bit fluff for today. AU where Sherlock finds a kitten and John is a
veterinarian :) I hope you like it!
One day Sherlock found a kitten.
Or the kitten found him.
It was a stormy day in April, and Sherlock was on his way home. He ran down the street, his shoulders raised against the strong wind, and then he heard it.
A barely audible meowing coming from a car.
Frowning, he stopped and squinted, as he heard the sound again.
Hesitantly, he bent down and glanced under the car.
Out of the shadows, two wide open eyes flashed towards him, and he heard another, this time clearly frightened, moew. There was a small, shaggy kitten sitting there, huddled under the car.
“Oh,” Sherlock said quietly and went to his knees. “What are you doing down there?”
He cautiously reached out for the small bundle of fur. The kitten back a little, away from his fingers, and meowed miserably.
“It’s all fine,” whispered Sherlock. “I won’t hurt you.”
The kitten continued to gaze at him with wide-open eyes.
“Come here.” Sherlock stretched further under the car, and finally, the kitten cautiously sniffed his fingers. “That’s it, I’m not going to hurt you,” Sherlock said softly, stretching his second arm under the car too. When he took the kitten, it squealed, but didn’t try to run away. Sherlock pulled it out and frowned.
Bright, blue eyes looked at him from a dirty, grey face. The animal was very thin and ruffled. Sherlock could see blood on one leg. He sighed. “What am I going to do with you, huh?”
The kitten meowed softly and fidgeted with its paws. “No, no, none of that,” Sherlock muttered, pressing the animal carefully against his chest. He got up and looked around the street, uncertain. The next moment he saw a sign with “veterinarian this way” and he sighed with relief. “Let’s have you checked out, hm?"
John Watson had just treated his last patient - a bulldog with a heavy cold - as his assistant pooped into the room.
"There’s another one, doctor.”
John frowned. “Wasn’t that the last appointment for today?”
“Yes, the young man in the waiting room says it’s an emergency. Found a kitten on the street. ”
“Oh,” John nodded. “Call him in.”
The man, who stormed into the treatment room a few seconds later, took John’s breath away. He was tall and slim. Dark curls hung wildly into his pale face, from which bright blue - no silver - or green? - eyes beamed. He had prominent cheekbones and full lips. In his arms, he had a gray bundle of fur, that he passed over to John immediately. “Here.”
John blinked, completely puzzled, and cleared his throat. “Uhm, good evening, Mister …”
“Sherlock Holmes,” said the man impatiently. “Sherlock is enough.”
“Sherlock. You found the kitten … ”
“It was under a car. I heard it meowing.”
“It was very nice of you to bring the kitten here,” John said as he gently took the small gray kitten from Sherlock. “Not everyone cares for a lonely, hurt animal on the street.” Sherlock glared at him, then shrugged. He seemed a bit embarrassed. “I … well, I thought it was just the logical decision to bring it here. Because, if it dies down there, it might attract flies.” He wrinkled his nose. “And … other vermin.”
“Sure.” John nodded and smiled. He didn’t believe for a second that the man didn’t care about the life of the tiny creature.
He weighed the kitten and did some basic examinations. It was a girl. Unhealthy, a little chilled and an injured leg. Fortunately, the wound was not inflamed. John disinfected it and bandaged it carefully. He also gave the cat the basic vaccinations she surely didn’t have.Then he smiled at Sherlock, who had watched the whole procedure silently.
“She’s not that badly off. She desperately needs something to eat and drink. I’ll give you antibiotics for the wound. ”
“I … Wait a minute, I can’t …” Sherlock looked puzzled and shook his head hastily. “I can’t keep her,” he muttered, looking aside.
“Why not? She seems to like you very much,” said John, laughing as the kitten clumsily marched on Sherlock and meowed emphatically. “You see? It seems to me that you have been chosen.”
Sherlock looked down at the kitten and frowned. “I don’t know if … my landlady … and …”
John laughed and picked up the kitten. He placed it back into Sherlock’s arms, who looked down into the
small bundle of fur, who was beginning to snuggle up and comfortably
closed her eyes. He swallowed.
“I’ll give you a carrier,” John explained. “And at the front desk you can get the medication.”
“I … thank you.” Sherlock lowered his head and smiled crookedly as the kitten rubbed her head against his chest.
For a moment, it was quiet.
For a moment, they were just standing there.
Then, John suddenly felt that he had to say something before it was too late. Before he let a chance pass, which might never come back. That he had to do something.
Before he actually realized it, the words were already out of his mouth.
“Would you like to have dinner tomorrow? I know a good Chinese … ”
Sherlock looked at him. With big, astonished eyes.
John swallowed. Great, Watson. Now you have screwed it up again …
John was so puzzled that he squeezed out a “what?”.
“Yes,” Sherlock repeated. “I’d like to have dinner with you.” And he smiled gently.
