what she means: turns out today wasn’t an amazing day after all, this isn’t going to be an amazing week or an amazing year cause…cause why would it be? oh i know because there’s zoe and all my hope is pinned on zoe who i don’t even know and who doesn’t know me but, you know, maybe if i did, maybe if i could just talk to her then maybe…maybe then nothing would be different at all. i wish everything was different. i wish that anything i said mattered to anyone. i mean, face it, would anyone even notice if i just disappeared tomorrow?
Owen convinces Claire to dance with him to "bring it on home to me" and tells her that the song reminds him of her (prompted by the starmora scene I can't get out of my head 😭) ❤
I knew that scene would translate to Claire and Owen sooner or later. Frankly, they don’t dance enough in fics… We gotta fix that!
Owen’s hand curled
around Claire’s wrist, stopping her in her tracks, the echo of her heels on the
parking lot pavement coming to an abrupt halt.
“Dance with me,” he
purred, pulling her toward him.
arched, a smile tugging at the corners of her mouth as she looked up at him,
trying to read him in the pale light of the streetlamps lining the sidewalk
some twenty feet away from them. However, his featured were hidden in the
shadows, and the smirk she knew was there was something she felt rather than
“Here?” She asked,
glancing around the mostly empty parking lot, their car being one of only three
occupying the space, the dark shop windows staring back at her, long closed until
The night was warm,
the breeze blowing from the ocean a few blocks away tasting of salt, and the
air was filled with the gentle whisper of the waves lapping the wet sand, swallowing
the cries of the seagulls. The breeze ruffled her hair, throwing stray wisps in
her face and tugging at the skirt of her dress. Above them, the sky was an
endless black canvas, and handful of stars sprinkled over it glimmered like
diamonds on velvet.
“There’s no place
like here, no time like now,” Owen said, snugging her against his chest, one
hand on the small of her back, leading her in slow circles.
following him without missing a beat. “What’s gotten into you? You hate
“Not with you, I
don’t.” His hand closed around hers resting on his chest, and he brushed a light
kiss to her temple. “This song reminds me of you, Claire,” he whispered, his
breath soft on her cheek as they fell into an easy step.
There was music
streaming from the open windows of the restaurant they’d just left, but it was
only when Owen mentioned it that she recognized Sam Cooke’s Bring it On Home To Me, her smile
widening by the moment, her mind flooded with the memories from so long ago
they felt like they were from some other life.
It had been years,
decades even, since she’d last heard that song, but her father used to love Sam
Cooke. He owned most of his albums on vinyl, and many a Sunday started for
Claire with watching him put one on, his face transforming, a dreamy expression
clouding his expression, pushing away every other care in the world. She
remembered her mother laughing as he twirled her around the living room,
remembered watching them, contented and happy, until she and Karen were
dancing, too, to the sweet sound of the low husk of Sam Cooke’s voice filling
every corner of the house.
She allowed her
eyes to flutter shut and rested her cheek on his shoulder, surrendering to the flow
of the melody that seemed to have seeped right into her skin and was running in
her bloodstream now. She could feel the warmth of his body through the thin
cotton of his shirt, her heartbeat thumping against her chest, reverberating
through her entire body, all the way from the top of her head to the tips of
her toes, mixing with the rhythm of the song until she wouldn’t tell them
“How is it about
me?” She asked, tucking her face into the crook of his neck, and maybe they
looked entirely ridiculous, dancing in the middle of the parking lot of a Friday
night, and a small part of her was somewhat self-conscious about it, but the
bigger part of her was so happy, so at peace in this moment that she wouldn’t want
to stop even if the whole world was watching.
“Well, you are here
and you’re my home,” he replied, giving her a sudden spin and then dipped her
back so low the ends of her hair almost touched the ground, making her dizzy
and knocking all wind out of her, before gathering her up and against his body
She gasped, and
Owen’s smile grew wider.
“You’re full of
surprises, Mr. Grady,” Claire teased him breathlessly, lightheaded with exhilaration,
feeling like she could soar right into the sky.
He settled them
into a slow sway, arm wrapped firmly around her, holding her close, their feet
barely moving, and his hand roaming lazily over her back as Sam Cooke’s vice
continued to float into the night. “Oh, you have no idea,” he murmured in half-promise
She lifted her
face, found his eyes, willing the music to never stop. “Show me.”
His hand let go of
her hand, his knuckles sliding under her chin and his mouth hovering over hers,“Hm,
where do I start?”
I understand that you have your own opinions and you have every right to voice them. But that does not make spamming me or anyone else on here with hateful messages telling us to kill ourselves okay on any level. I wouldn’t have spoken up if it was just this once, but it has been happening almost consistently now.
I am a Christian. I’m sorry if that offends anyone, but I mean no disrespect or hate toward you. This is merely a place where I put my art and I intend to keep it safe and wholesome for everyone. Please, if you don’t like me or my content, then you can easily unfollow me.
Sorry to bother you T.T Youngjae has so many types of styles. And I love them all and I need ideas for my outfits. So can you give me a spam of youngjae in his own style.
Phew, you give me such a hard time for this one since I had to back track all the way to 2014 but nothing sweeter than being able to look at my Youngjae’s photos since debut till now. Anyway I didn’t include many stage outfits since those outfits are most probably chosen by the coordi noona for him. I tried my best to include all styles but I had to limit them since they are so many. Anyway, I hope you can get ideas for your outfits ^^
p/s: these are also my favorite style of Youngjae especially him with snapback and sunglasses looking so hot and handsome..ouch…kekeke
As we all know that our Youngjae loves wearing clothes that give him warmth and comfort so that why we see him wears hoodie most of the time
Other than hoodie, Youngjae also loves wearing big long jacket especially during cold season
Other times, when Youngjae wanted to feel comfortable and feel laid back he would wear shirt with jeans or loose pants. As we know Youngjae is all about comfortable clothing especially during casual outing like to the airport or before the shows and during summer.
Though Youngjae preferred comfortable clothing, there are times where we see him dressing fancily and I think that depends on his mood like what type of outfits he wants to wear. So, it’s nice sometimes looking at Youngjae in a nice and sophisticated outfit. He often complete his look with snapback or fedora and sunglasses
Sometimes, we see Youngjae instead of hoodie on top he wears dress shirt and a T-shirt inside.
Long coat is also one of Youngjae’s favorite which I think he looked nice in it^^
These are some other types of styles that Youngjae dress in. ^^
Youngjae in jean jacket with snapback and sunglasses. Looking very hot to me ^^
Youngjae with his favorite loose shirt and pants…
or in just very loose long sleeves shirt…which made him look adorable ^^
Definitely my favorite, when he wears short pants as his thigh and legs are to die for..he should show them more…kekeke
Out all of these, my favorite would be him with wearing comfortable clothes like shirt or hoodie with snapback and sunglasses. I just miss Youngjae with his sunglasses and snapback…and simply Youngjae in his comfy clothes

Holy moly I literally have not been here in AGES. So long, in fact, I thought about deleting this account.
I’ve been a LOT more active on Instagram and twitter as far as updates and what I’ve been up to but EHHHHHH. Why not huh??
I doubt any of you guys went to SWCO or saw me, but ever since the convention? I’ve been down and restless. It was the most AMAZING Star Wars experience I’ve ever had and I miss everyone SO MUCH. I’d like to post a lot of the pics I took but I dunno if anyone wants to see that kind of Tumblr picture dump xD
Orlando was amazing and I’ve been to a lot of thing since Celebration and I’m about to head to AnimeFest Dallas next weekend! Doubt any of you go there either. Been busy with the cosplay crunch xD AGHN! Should have even more pics to dump here after next weekend if I get ambitious BUT if not… there’s always Instagram and twitter!
Hope everyone’s been doing ok. I’ve also been thinking about trying to put art on red bubbles and society 6… just haven’t xD I also want to design some enamel pins and maybe buttons to sell. Could really use a little extra income to pay off my Celebration debt xD dear lord.
Take care and sorry in advance for pic spamming if I get ambitious xD
As I’m strolling through my dash I don’t think there is enough PCap for my viewing pleasure. So what does a lady do to remedy that….well start a PCap spam. Time for some spamming My Dear Followers if PCap isn’t your cup of tea, I’m sorry in advance.
I think I will start with all the wonderful documentaries that PCap has been in. They are a beauty for the eyes.
I chose the day Sasuke left the village as my saddest moment. There definitely were a lot of heart wrenching moments in the series, but I picked this moment because, not only did Sakura confess her love to Sasuke for the first time, but this moment also showed how hard it actually was for Sasuke to leave the village.
Sasuke called Sakura annoying and tried to push her away emotionally in order to leave without feeling any attachment or hesitation in his decision. But when Sakura wouldn’t budge, he saw just how much she was willing to do for him, how much she actually loved him, and he expressed his gratitude to her for the first time by thanking her.
It’s also the moment Sakura seems to hold to the most dear to her heart as well, as shown at the end of the war arc when she thought about Sasuke’s departure as she, once again, declared her love for him.
(Sorry to any of my followers who may not be big SasuSaku fans. I don’t mean to be spamming your feed with too much SasuSaku content, but I am just so happy to participate in SasuSaku week!!)
So I have probably liked 3/4 posts on this blog... I'm terribly sorry for that note spam. I just wanted to tell you dear admin, how much I absolutely LOVE this au! One of the best so far. Really creative, smart, a lot of angst and heh... Other character developments ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) But seriously, I love you, I love this au, I love every single post here... I'm truly happy that I found out about this blog. I can't remeber when was the last time I giggled out loud like here. Thank you for this 💚
Ahh oh my god you’re so so sweet!! This means so much to me and I’m so glad that this means so much to you too! Feel free to message me any time, I love talking to you guys!! ❤️❤️❤️
