Make You Feel (Pietro Maximoff x Reader)

Prompt/Summary: You convince Pietro to smoke weed with you. Smut will occur, beautiful, beautiful, stoned smut.

Based on the song Make You Feel by Alina Baraz (which sounds amazing stoned, I highly recommend it for smoking playlists)

Warnings: 18+, Drug use (smoking pot), UNPROTECTED SEXY SEX

Word Count:  2171 (Oops haha)

IMPORTANT NOTES: This DOES include smoking pot, so please don’t bitch at me about weed, I am very pot friendly, and an avid smoker myself.

Thank you so much, NOW ONTO THE GOOD STUFF

 This is my first Pietro, so be nice por favor <3


“I’m not sure about this Y/N.” You grabbed the handle to your door, pushing it open. A reluctant Pietro following behind. You closed and locked the door before turning back to the blonde in a blue t shirt.

“Hey, do you trust me?” You walked towards your best friend, crossing your arms.

“Da.”

“You’ll be fine. Come on.” You grabbed Pietro by the arm and lead him towards your balcony. You were a college student at NYU, and for credits, you were interning at Stark Enterprise, specifically Tony’s office assistant. When you mentioned how annoyed you were with your roommate and everything to do with dorms, Tony being the sweetheart he was, offered to let you stay in the tower, which meant living with the FUCKING AVENGERS. You had become close with Steve and Wanda, but shared a very similar sense of humor with Pietro, making you two extremely close. You hung out whenever he wasn’t on missions or you at school or in the office.

A/N: I’m so so sorry it’s taken me so long to get this written, guys. I’m in my last semester of college and these last few weeks have been absolute hell. I’m slowly trying to catch up with life, while also trying to just make it through finals alive. Anyway, I’m not super thrilled with how this chapter came out, but I feel like I owe it to you guys to at least post it. I’m sorry if it’s not up to my usual standards, but I’m doing my best. Hopefully by the next chapter, I’ll be back to being my usual self.

“Y/N? Are you almost ready doll? We should get going. The appointment’s in an hour and you know how unpredictable traffic can be around this time,” Bucky smiled at you from the doorway, watching as you pulled on your shoes.

“Yup! Just let me grab my purse and I’ll be ready to go!” You nodded, blushing slightly as you felt his eyes trailing over your figure.

Actions speak louder than words.
Why do we say this when often it’s the words that have the most effect on us?
We can get over someone punching us in the face, you have a bruise for a while but it fades and you somehow move on when it goes.
But when someone says something to us that is hurtful, it lasts a lifetime.
The pain caused by simple sentences can never leave, it can eat away at someone, it can send someone insane. Words race round brains and corrupt self image. Someone says something about your appearance and you instantly want to hide away. Someone says something about your personality and you instantly shut everyone out. Someone says something about how you live your life and you instantly don’t want to be around. It’s time we realise that sometimes a word can destroy a person. Think before you speak, you don’t know what battle that person could be fighting.

  • jeon jungkook how do i even begin to describe jeon jungkook - jeon jungkook is flawless
  • under no circumstances do you wake him up, he is a grown man and can hear his sailor moon alarm tone just fine thank you very much
  • but if you hit snooze one time he is very disappointed in you like how could you waste such a beautiful day but you’re like jungkook it’s raining outside
  • he has absolutely no chill, whatever you do don’t challenge him to anything even if it’s just for fun, you will lose and he will win rather extravagantly
  • he takes things very seriously and his poker face is ridiculously on point and you will stare at him wondering if he’s trying to decide on what to have for dinner or if he’s seriously thinking about how many years are left until he’s the president of south korea
  • even though he is the golden manliest of all men, he really likes that you call him kookie, it warms his stone heart
  • there was a time that you bluntly told him that seeing him in those leather pants forced you to do a couple loads of laundry and he literally had no idea what you were talking about it was embarrassing
  • he wears the pants in this relationship, don’t kid yourself, and he always moves around you like he’s your personal shield though you’re thinking kookie ain’t nobody after me i should be protecting you from jimin
  • you busted your butt to get him a specially signed g-dragon album and he threw a fangirl fit and almost cried but when you bought couple rings for your anniversary he patted your head like a good girl but it’s g-dragon so you understand
  • this kid believes there is a time and place for affection and he usually must set aside a few hours on his schedule to devote to dates there is no spontaneity because he’s gotta perfect those dance moves don’t you know he carries bangtan on his shoulders
  • it drives you nuts that he can be so indifferent all the time, like you could be calling him crying your eyes out and he’s just like bro you gotta calm down i can’t understand a word you’re saying
  • but if you tell him there’s an emergency he will fly out the door without even bothering to put his shoes on to come find you he makes no sense at all
  • do not try to make any moves on him while watching a drama together, if he misses a crucial plot point the rest of the episodes will confuse him don’t do that to this precious baby
  • you tried to watch game of thrones together, a sex scene came on and he made you turn it off he don’t care that there are dragons later on, that shit defiled him how could you
  • when he’s in the mood and his schedule is clear you better grab a seat belt because he’s still learning how all this sexy time stuff works and you get to be his guinea pig and the golden maknae is a fast learner duh
  • he means what he says, it doesn’t matter how big or small it is, if he says he’ll meet you for a zumba class at six oclock he will be there five minutes early and will wear matching pink headbands with you
  • loves going to concerts with you and will cheer his little heart out and it’s so damn cute like this human is where you have laid all your affections
  • it’s like he doesn’t ever get stressed, and when he’s on tour and you’re at home absolutely miserable you call him up and his voice is all deep and husky while he tells you about his day and you’re thinking do you miss me at all you little brat
  • and then he suddenly mentions that he thought about the time you two went to the beach and you wore that hot two piece and do you still have that? and you’re thinking why isn’t this kid ever talking like this when he’s at home with me
  • there are times when you wonder how much you mean to him because he’s not vocal about it at all but then he sweeps you up for a quick vacation because he has the weekend off and you spend the entire night at the swimming pool
  • he let you ride on his back while he did the dog paddle, there were fireflies too kookie is adorable when he wants to be
  • and you both finally went all the way afterward so he’s like maybe we can give game of thrones another chance i wanna see the dragons
  • but in all seriousness he’s so mature and you never have to worry about a thing, if you need something he already has it ready before you even tell him it’s very strange but kookie is always prepared
  • he is not afraid to call you out or correct you if you’re wrong about something but he always does it very respectfully because you are his lady and he will punch himself in the face before he hurts you
  • and he is a total gentleman, like always holding hands, gives you the window seat, opens doors for you and holds your hair when you throw up because damn it he told you that was too much wine you lightweight
  • he strokes your hair while your head rests on his chest and he asks if you believe the two of you will make it and you admit that you do and he apologizes for not telling you he loves you enough
  • but you tell him you know he does because his actions speak louder than words and he kisses your forehead before crying a little bit because there is a heart of gold under all that manliness

colie7700  asked:

Vergil is touch starved and he takes hot showers to satisfy his need. Because he takes so many showers, he constantly smells wonderful. Princy is jealous so he stalks anx to see how he smells so wonderful all the time, he gets confused as to why he takes so may showers so he asks and it leads to fluff!!!!!!

I just went crazy on this, but I do believe to turned out pretty good! It’s Roman’s pov cause I’ve always found him a challenge to write. Anyway hope you enjoy it!

—————————————————————–

Roman didn’t understand. He always made sure to have the latest and most beautifully smelling shampoo, as any good, handsome, prince should. Yet here came Virgil smelling like fresh dew covered grass, mixed with lavender and…bubble gum? Roman was….”passionately offended” by the fact Virgil always smelled this good. He didn’t say anything to Virgil at first, his pride wouldn’t let him. Until today when Virgil came into the kitchen smelling just like the ocean and cotton candy. Roman walked up to Virgil and cleared his throat earning his attention, “How do you do it?” His question flew over Virgil’s head and Roman mentally slapped himself, “I mean, ugh…how come you always smell…nice?” Virgil just stood frozen for a second before turning away looking through the cabinets for something to eat.

Roman crossed his arms and tapped his foot on the ground. He had asked politely enough and it wasn’t completely outlandish. There should be no reason to ignore him, how rude! As if reading his mind Virgil spoke softly, “I’m not ignoring you, it’s just…I like taking showers so I have a lot of different shampoo.” Virgil bit his lip nervously, Roman had talked with Virgil enough with the others to know he was hiding something. Roman knew when Virgil hid something from him and the others, it took quite a lot of energy to get him to talk about it. Making a decision Roman sighed and relaxed his shoulders, he’ll play with Virgil’s lie for now.

“Alright, I’ll take your word on it.” Virgil looked relieved until Roman stopped him by holding up a finger. “Bbbut, you have to show me what kind you have. A prince must always be presentable and handsome when saving damsels and fighting dragon-witches.” A wide smile spread across his face as Virgil sighed. And so later that day Virgil allowed him to enter his room to see his stash of scented wonders. Roman was a little nervous to say the least, he really did want to know what Virgil used, but now he just wanted to dig out the real reason. With the times Virgil hid things away from them, they had all caused some harm to Virgil. Let it be physically or mental, Virgil would hid it so the others wouldn’t be ‘bothered’ as he would put it. So his mission was to carefully get Virgil to open up, a prince saving a damsel in distress! With that thought Roman with extra determination entered Virgil’s room. It was the same dark creepy room as always, but it did feel different. Less guarded, having some calming factor underneath. Roman turned his head to the floor where Virgil was sitting surrounded by hundreds of bottles. “Wow, and you made fun of me for owning 101 posters.” Roman sat next to Virgil which made him flinch slightly, Roman made note of it in case it could help him later. “Although, I have to say I’m impressed. Seeing as there are no doubles, their all different scents.” Roman looked over the bottles finding, mint, maple, blueberry and Japanese cherry blossom? It was a large collection to say the least and most hadn’t even been touched yet.

Roman had grabbed a bottle only to find his hand landing on another hand. Virgil had quickly pulled away, making Roman feel as if he made a mistake until he heard Virgil speak quietly. “S-sorry” It wasn’t too often Virgil apologized and maybe it was the room but Roman’s worry skyrocketed. Roman carefully placed a hand on Virgil’s shoulder giving him a chance to move away. When he didn’t and only shivered, Roman gave a reassuring squeeze before speaking,” Virgil? Something’s wrong, don’t say that it isn’t because we both already know it won’t work.” Virgil’s eyes were glued to the floor as he mumbled something inaudible. “Hun, you’re going to have to speak louder than that.”

Suddenly, Virgil gave a glare before blurting out, “ I’m just not use to it!” Roman released the boy’s shoulder giving a look of surprise. “I’m not…use to being…touched.” Virgil looked again at Roman before sighing and hiding behind his bangs before continuing to explain. “That’s why I always smell “good”as you put it, hot showers help with….it” Virgil’s arms had wrapped themselves around his waist as if to protect himself.

“…You’ve been touch-starved this whole time? You haven’t even bothered to ask for help?” Roman was starting to see red. He always did this thinking he’s a bother, it frustrated Roman. But what frustrated him more was how he never noticed. Never questioned why Virgil seemed uncomfortable when Patton gave hugs to the others and not him or even when brushing past someone. “You always do this! Why?!” Virgil was shaking slightly and Roman dropped all anger knowing this would just hurt Virgil even more, “I want to help you. It hurts me, you know?” Roman had moved in front of Virgil and laid his hands out for him to hold, which he did slowly. “It hurts to see you in pain. I vowed to help you but,” Tears had found their way under Roman’s eyes as he looked up at Virgil whose face was covered in tears. “How am I supposed to protect you when…..when you won’t let me in?” At that Virgil broke sobbing and squeezing Roman’s hands. Roman squeezed back and slowly lead Virgil onto his chest to cry on. Virgil was shaking and small words of apologies and whimpers leaked out with every breath. Roman was shushing him while combing his hair and rubbing circles on his back. Roman’s own tears and sobbing were drowned out by him singing softly to Virgil. As they relaxed and Virgil was able to breath again, Roman lifted Virgil’s head towards him. He smiled down at him as he whispered so softly Virgil could barely hear him, “I promise, I’ll always be your knight in your time of need.” As Virgil was still reeling from the confession Roman carefully grabbed his face and kissed his forehead.

A couple weeks later and his promise still stood strong. Helping Virgil was extremely slow in reality. Their first hug going easy only because of the overflowing emotions at the time. They started small, simple hand touches and hand holding. Getting use to high fives and arm resting on shoulders, and finally hugs. They had become Virgil’s favorite thing in the world, especially if Roman gave them. Virgil would always feel safe, like while the world burns he was safe because Roman was holding him. Roman was overjoyed to say the least, he would spend every chance he had fawning over his boyfriend, giving small kisses and warm hugs while watching some Disney marathon or just waking up to see his face. Sure they still bickered and fought, but at the end of the day they could never stay mad. It was a roller-coaster, but Roman wouldn’t have it any other way.

Kisses and Confessions

I’m kinda hesitant to ask coz I’m pretty sure you won’t do it since it’s repetitive but if you do then can you make a similar story to the one you wrote with Sehun it’s called “teach me to kiss” except the roles are reversed and you are the one teaching xD I ADORE YOUR BLOG BTW

You glanced at Sehun, eyebrow raised in attempt to mock his lack of kissing experience. You knew he’d never been romantically involved with anyone before, the two of you know each other better than anyone else after being friends for the past several years, but to hear this aloud gave you some kind of amusement as you teased him.

Unsure of his own emotions, his cheeks began to turn rosy as he shoved you in the side half heartedly. “Shut up, I’m not a slut like you.”

You laughed, the charm of your smile lighting up your eyes brighter than the greatest star in the sky. You shuffled closer to him, the apples of your cheeks prominently standing out sweetly, emphasising the beauty in the way you smile.

“Why don’t I be your first?”

He opened your mouth to counter the comment, but words couldn’t arrange themselves as his mind swirled in a mixture of confusion and embarrassment. He closed your mouth again, looking away as you giggled at how you’d managed to stun him to being completely speechless.

“Aww, are you shy?” You teased.

“No, I’m not!” He snapped, “I just… I don’t know what I’m doing so-”

“Well that’s the point. First kisses can be nerve wracking and awkward, but if I teach you how to do it now, then you’ll save yourself the worry.”

“I’m not worried” He persisted, eyes looking down as his lips drew to an adorable pout. It was hard not to press your lips against his there and then.

“Then how come everytime I ask you about getting a girl, your excuse is, I don’t know how to kiss and that’s embarrassing because it’s not manly” You ended the last part in a exaggerated mocking of his voice, causing him to roll your eyes as a smile tugged at the corner of his lips.

“Alright fine.” He finally agreed, looking slightly exasperated and embarrassed all in one. “Just do it and get it over with, I can’t cope with you teasing me about it any longer.”

You giggled, and his cheeks glowed hotter. You stood up, softly pulling at his hand in motion for him to join you. As he rose to his feet, you guided his hands on your hips before moving your own to his broad shoulders, you could feel his toned collarbones even through his cotton white tee-shirt as your fingertips traced circles.

You looked up, catching his eyes. He looked unsettled, but a hint of excitement laced in his stare. You tilted your head to the side before carefully moving in, but it was him that pushed his lips against your first.

His lips were hesitant and unsure, but with each brush of your lips against his brought him confidence.

Considering he’d never kissed anyone in his life, it felt better than amazing, more magical than magic itself. After a few moments, he pulled away, gathering a sharp intake of breath before smiling at you sheepishly.

Time seemed to stop somehow as you watched each other closely, and it wasn’t until you felt his warm breath sweeping across your lips that you realised the two of you were subconsciously moving in again. Your eyes fluttered to another close, and then his lips were touching yours again.

This time it was harder, more positive and cool. His grip tightened, gripping your sides tighter before deciding there wasn’t enough contact and snaked his arms around your waist, dragging you expertly into his chest as though he’d done it a million times before. You could feel the atmosphere changing as you wrapped your own arms around his neck.

He pulled away again, this time not looking so self-conscious, this time le looked assured.

“I think I’ve got this kissing thing, you know, it isn’t as hard as I thought.”

“I’m glad to hear that.” You smiled at him, but inside your heart was sinking. Now, he was going to let go, and that kiss he’d given you would be taken to someone else, to love them. Your lips ached in loveless agony that could only be cured by his lips gracing yours again.

“{y/n}, I know I’ve never kissed anyone before but when I kissed you… I felt, I don’t know… chemistry? Is that supposed to happen.”

“What do you mean by chemistry?” You asked him, tilting your head to the side.

“I mean, my heart was beating really fast, and I could feel myself blushing. And now, even though I know we’re just friends, all I want to do is kiss you again.”

“Is that a confession, Oh Sehun?” You winked at him, making him tut.

“Aish, I don’t know…” He looked unsure, then, he smiled. “They say actions speak louder than words, right?”

The question must have been rhetorical, because before you had chance to respond, his lips were back on yours.

Was this his confession?

You took that as a rightful ‘yes.’

Agony

Summary: Set after 2x12, somewhere in 2x13 as Alec is named Head of the Institute. Skipping the whole downworlder DNA request, Magnus and Alec haven’t spoken since the night Magnus asked for space after returning to his body. After a meeting with the queen of mermaids, Alec starts to feel strange. Soon he’s experiencing a similar trauma as the night of Max’s party when they were cursed by Iris.

Alec strolled down the hall of the Institute, shaking his head a little at the fogginess that was lingering in his mind. He had just gotten back from meeting with a few authoritative mermaids and he was grateful that he had left unscathed. It hadn’t been a trip he necessarily wanted to go on alone, but with Jace and Clary on an important mission to track down some lost Shadowhunters and Isabelle assisting Raphael and Simon with some vampire drama, he didn’t really trust anyone at the Institute the same way he did them so it was pointless to drag someone along. Plus the queen of the mermaid clan he was meeting with had requested he come alone and mermaids were not the type you’d want to insult. They could be tricky, sly and manipulative.

Thankfully, Alec was feeling pretty good about the exchange. Being Head of the New York Institute was what he had always secretly hoped for for himself, but the reality of it was a lot of pressure. He enjoyed it though, felt as though now he had the opportunity to make a change, and that was what he had wanted for a long time.

Checking his phone, he had no new messages, and he sighed as he headed to his room to change. Training would be his next task to keep him occupied.

It had been days since he had seen Magnus, something that, since they started dating, was almost unheard of. Unless one or both of them had business to attend to that took multiple days, they saw each other frequently, even for short visits, or at the very least spoke on the phone and exchanged messages. But Magnus had asked for space as he dealt with the horrors of his past, horrors that he had relived when he was trapped in Valentine’s body.

Alec could only imagine what tragedies Magnus had experienced in his long, long life, but he wished he could be there for the man he loved. He wanted Magnus to confide in him, let him help him heal, but Alec had suspicions that Magnus needed space from him too. After all, Alec hadn’t believed him when he was in Valentine’s body, and it nearly cost Magnus his life. Something Alec would have to live with for the rest of his life.

He had wanted to believe him of course. And he suspected things were off with Magnus when he saw him at the loft. And Valentine knowing intimate details of Magnus and Alec’s dating life was more than a little suspicious. But seeing the man who he had been raised to fear and disbelieve, no matter what, was a hard thing to shake. Years of drilling that the man was manipulative, selfish, and only out for himself made Alec distrustful. And it nearly ended tragically for many.

He couldn’t blame Magnus for being upset with him. If the roles were reversed, Alec knew he’d feel betrayed and hurt too. But it still ate at him, gnawed at his insides that he had hurt Magnus so badly. He wanted to make it up to him. He hoped he’d give him the chance.

For now, since he was determined to give Magnus what he asked for even if the space hurt, Alec turned his efforts over to training. The more training he got in, the more he’d be ready for whenever they had to face the next big bad, and he knew the stakes were higher for him now that he was the leader of such a large group. There wasn’t room for the kind of mistakes he had made in the past.

The training room was empty, a rare luxury, and Alec figured his shooting was still on point thanks to his recent vanquish of Azazel, so his hand-on-hand combat skills were more of a priority. Prepping the dummy, he visualized an opponent and moved into action.

Swift kicks, elbow jabs, and targeted punches hitting the figurine sounded throughout the room amongst his grunts of exertion. Picturing Valentine helped him to focus, to use the extent of his strength and stamina to win the imaginary fight.

“You didn’t believe him.” suddenly whispered in his head, and Alec stopped short, turning around. The room was still empty.

He was breathing hard, trying to piece together what he just heard. It sounded as if someone had said it to him directly, but also like it echoed only in his mind. It was a weird sensation.

The mermaids couldn’t have cursed him—he knew they were tricky and manipulative, but they didn’t have the magic the Fairfolk had or other downworlders. They were more similar to Seelies in their mind-tricking ways.

So was it just his guilt speaking louder than before?

Heart is Open

This is a super short fic because @a-heart-of-kyber had to put a song in my head.

They barely spoke as they climbed the stairs to the loft. The physical and emotional exhaustion sat heavy in her limbs. But she didn’t want to tell him to go. Something told her that the only reason she was still on her feet was Oliver’s presence right next to her.

He followed her inside, letting the door fall close behind him. And she figured it was time so say something.

“Thank you, for walking me up.” There was still a charge between them. She’d felt it all night, exploding at all the wrong moments.

“I just wanted to make sure…” But he trailed off his eyes trained on her so intently. She knew what he was saying. She could feel it as easy as her own heartbeat. They had both come too close to losing the other over the course of the evening.

“Well calling Paul was a genius idea,” she mused, folding her arms around herself. “Might have been a tad awkward for Curtis, but he did help with PT after–” But she couldn’t say the words. She could barely let her mind flash to that Christmas.  

“I’m sure Curtis and Paul just need time. And a few hundred conversations.”

“I hope so.” But she wasn’t talking about her friends. Not really. For the first time in a year she allowed herself to picture them, moving forward, together. And it was enough to knock the breath right out of her.

“Felicity,” he took a step forward, and she could see the hesitation, the fear, as he spoke. “I know that one night can’t fix what broke between us. I know that it’s going to take time and many more talks. But I want you to know that I’m willing to keep talking to you, but only if that’s what you want.”

His words rolled over her, doing their best to cave right into her soul. Twelve hours ago they stood on opposite sides of a line she had drawn between them, she’d chosen to risk everything with that line. And it was time she faced the reason why.

“I don’t want to talk,” she said, and she could see the pain spread across his face. But she wouldn’t let it sit there long. Instead she stepped towards him, laying a hand against his cheek. “That didn’t come out how I meant it.”

“Fel–”

“There’s so many things rushing through my head, Oliver.” she took a shaking breath, but forced her eyes to his. “But tonight, when I thought I lost you, again. I begged you to wake up, and I promised myself that if you did, if you just opened your eyes and looked into mine, then the rest could wait.”

His hands slipped around her waist, holding her in place. He gaze burned in the best ways possible, and she had missed the feel of his fingers against her.

“I don’t think we should ignore things.”

“I don’t either,” she said giving him a smile. “But sometimes actions speak louder than words.”

It was the only invitation Oliver needed before his lips were on hers, lifting her up as much as could on his bad knee. But it was like every kiss, every touch, was working to heal the wounds they shared. And this time she would let it. Because there was no force on the earth that was strong enough to pull Oliver Queen from her arms ever again. She wasn’t strong enough to bear it.

This sweet, sweet boy.. To be honest, he doesn’t mention it as much as you’d originally thought. However, one time you were having dinner with all of the family, all the boys were there; chatting away. Then Chanyeol spoke up, saying that your eyes really are that green in person, he never realized it. 
What do you mean, you’re surprised?”
Well, Jongin talks about you all the time, mentioning how beautiful your eyes are and he’ll show us photos but I never thought they were that green.”
He brags about you. :3

Chanyeol:
Every once and a while he’ll say they’re pretty but sometimes, okay… A lot of times, he’ll tease you about it. It’s all in good fun, you tease him right back. However if you don’t tease him back, he knows to apologize and shower you in love, saying everything about you is beautiful, he only loves to tease you.
Your eyes are green, sooo weird, jagi. Do you see in green?”
Your ears are so far out, so large, does that mean you hear better, baby?~”

D.O:
He stares, a lot. Like you’ll be talking about your day during dinner and he’s just intently staring at you. After a little while without any nods, ‘hmms’ or any form of response you call his name, dragging him back to reality. Kyungsoo quickly became Squishysoo realizing you caught him in this little “stare-at-your-beautiful-eyes-till-we’re-finished” moment. 

Baekhyun:
Boi is jealous. Constantly mentions how why do you get these naturally beautiful, unique eyes and he has brown.
Jagiya, I  have to wear contacts *whine* why can’t I have eyes like yours?” 

Lay:
He is the absolute sweetest when it comes to you, whether it’s your little mannerisms or things you say. During your little outings, whether it be a walk or picking some food up, you two will be talking and being a sweet angel, he always tries to teach you things in his native language. The one thing have memorized, other than ‘I love you’ is him saying that your eyes are beautiful.

Chen:
Happy ball of fluff about them. All happy sighs and ‘wows’ whenever he looks into your eyes for a tad too long. You always catch him and tease him about it, it’s really cute his reaction.
But they’re just so… so… Green.. So pretty and..” 

Xiumin: 
Minseok is a quiet man, more listening than talking. So whenever you two might be cuddled up on the couch, him lightly stroking your hair, holding you to his chest as you gaze up at him and talk about random things; from your day to ‘if I had a super power, it would be..’ Other than his small acknowledgements, he just listened to you, except every once and awhile he’d speak up.
Have I ever told you your eyes are really pretty?”  

Sehun:
He doesn’t say it outright a lot, maybe after you have a bad day or a comment got to you; and when he starts to name everything he loves about you, without just saying all of you. But in day to day, it’s the little things that he does. You two could be reading on the couch with Vivi in your lap and all of a sudden, he reaches over and tucks your hair behind your ear, his finger tips lingering on your skin before he goes back to doing what he was doing before. 
His actions speak louder than his words.

OT12

Kris:
Everybody knows. When he introduces you to everyone, he says your name and then he goes: 
Do you see her eyes, aren’t they such a beautiful green colour?”

Luhan:
He goes between being normal and chatting away or doing something with you and then he’ll just look into your eyes so deeply, it’s as if he’s just trying to get even more lost in them than he already is. Then after a few seconds, he’s back to normal and smiles, chuckling softly. You know that he thinks they’re beautiful. It’s the little things with Luhan.

Tao:
He honestly has tried to get you to pair Gucci with your green eyes. This boy, amirite? Sometimes he’ll bring it up randomly.
What’s gucci, (Y/N)? Your eyes, that’s for sure.” 
;)

Every other night she comes to me. She lays next to me, sometimes she calms right away, sometimes it takes a while for her to stop shaking and breathing heavily. My nightmares have subsided ever since she and I became so close, and strangely, it’s because hers keep coming back that we’ve become so close.

anonymous asked:

I love your imagines, especially your TFA Blackarachnia scenarios! She's a character who definitely needs more love in the fandom! Can you do a scenario with Blackarachnia's reaction to her normally shy and quiet human s/o defending her from someone (like Sentinel) calling her a freak?

Thank you so much! I get quite a few Blackarachnia requests, but I hardly see them elsewhere, it’s weird. X3

Blackarachnia was finished. She knew that. Sentinel had her backed up against a rock, gun pointed right at her helm. Her human couldn’t do anything. She knew that, too. She just didn’t want to accept that it was over for her. Her life was through. Sentinel’s voice stung her audio receptors,

“It’s over Blackarachnia! Your reign of terror is finally done!”

“Calling it a ‘reign of terror’ is a bit over dramatic, don’t you think?”

“Shut up, freak!”

Her optics narrowed. That pissed her off. But what could she do about it? That’s when you surprised her. From your place on the rock above her, you spoke louder than she’d ever heard you speak before,

Hey, assclown! Welcome to Earth!” 

Sentinel lowered his gun in fear and alarm. He hadn’t seen you there.

“As far as we’re concerned, you're more of a freak than she is!” You climbed down from your rock, and scampered over to his pede. 

“N-no! Don’t touch me! Filthy organic!” You touched his pede, and he shrieked. Sentinel ran away, yelling about a decontamination shower. Blackarachnia picked you up from behind, held you to her faceplate, and kissed you softly.

“Thanks, sugar.”

The Silent Problem of darkSpyro (I would not recommend joining)

DarkSpyro.net. A big Skylanders/Spyro the Dragon website that is steadily growing by the day.

While the forum does have some neat information on Skylanders and old Spyro the Dragon games, what members don’t know is that there is more than just fancy walkthrough pages and galleries. There is the communication and the enjoyment fans gain by talking with others about the Skylanders and Spyro games. Or it can be about topics related to silliness and standard real world discussions.  There is also the forum moderation. It can help make your time on the forum fun, or it can make your time there difficult.

Most of you may know me from the forums, and I have been around since 2008. Back then, the darkSpyro forums was just about Spyro games, solely operated by dark52.

Besides posting walkthroughs, managing  and creating news posts on the Spyro games, dark52 was mostly on top of rule-breakers and trolls and would ban them from the forums as soon as they ignore their first few warnings. Sometimes though, trolls would come on when the admin was asleep, and it would take hours later until he would come online to clean up the mess. But other than that, darkSpyro was a pleasant place to talk and chat with other Spyro fans.

Until the time came when dark52 decided to follow Skylanders and made the site a part Spyro part Skylanders division. As time went on, more and more members joined due to the audience of Skylanders, and it became too much for the admin.

Some of us suggested to dark52 that he should appoint moderators so he wouldn’t feel so overwhelmed. But dark refused to accept help and believed that he could handle the forum on his own like he always had.

Big mistake.

At one point, a troll posted inappropriate images on the forum that lasted for 6 hours until dark52 finally woke up and deleted them all. I can’t even imagine how many kids late at night or in the morning were possibly scarred by those pictures all because of dark’s stubbornness. Even after all of that, he was STILL convinced that he didn’t need any moderators. Completely ignorant to the fact that he doesn’t do anything when something obviously bad is happening. Can you believe it??


Sometime after the horrible incident, the admin allowed trolls to get away with harassing users. They broke the forum rules on multiple occassions, drove away older members, and the trolls even had the nerve to start speaking on the admin’s behalf just to belittle others. In short, dark52 basically just sat back and watched the rule breaking scenario all happen. And this lasted about a few years and it could’ve lasted a LOT longer.

I was one of the main victims of the trolling, and I can tell you, it was the worst experience I’ve ever endured on any forum. Imagine being harassed and trolled on for months or longer, being the target of an upcoming war started by a troll who was in the process of tricking an entire forum section of children to be against you. And the admin knowing fully well what’s going on but refused to do anything about it. All just to update forum news and making posts about Skylanders. Like the concerns of his userbase don’t matter to him at all.

It can drive you extremely fustrated, crazy even. Honestly it drove me insane that I wondered WHY I was still on that forum.

After some time during all of the chaos, dark52 FINALLY gave in and went on to appoint moderators after 8 long years of solo moderation. At least he admitted that he neglected his duties. Although he never did apologize to the users, including myself, who were harassed constantly by the trolls thanks to him. But even with mods, dark didn’t do much moderation himself sometime afterwards, besides removing the occasional spambot or inappropriate picture troll.

Nowadays, there is a 10% chance you will get a private message response from dark52, regardless of your question, request or in need of intervention. The other 90% is him updating the forum polls on Skylanders, getting news on Skylanders, and making the site look prettier. He rarely communicates with the forum members and his fellow moderators, keeping most rule changes and decisions to himself until he feels like revealing them at the last minute. You will very likely see him talk about Skylanders, than responding forum issues that aren’t worth his time to talk about.

In addition, dark52 has shown some severe signs of neglecting his admin duties. Such as:

  • Causing an harassment war to nearly happen
  • Allowing a kid to post his private information more than three times (and we’re talking about family names, home address, email that kind of private information that should be kept your self)
  • Allowing scenarios to escalate out of porportion until he feels like dealing with it. 

He has even shown signs of being incredibly biased towards other users. Such as spoiling one user to the point that that very user became a disruptive egomaniac who is willing to belittle and even dox you just to be superior. This is a direct result of being pampered by the admin.

If you have a logical issue about dark52 and his way of moderation, he will simply disregard your topic subject at hand altogether and will respond to an-off topic comment on popup ads instead. Or he will simply say: “I care about the community and its members” at the hopes that phrase will get users off his back.

As a former longtime member of the forum, I WOULD NOT recommend darkSpyro.net unless you are used to an admin who doesn’t take his job as site owner very seriously. You might become stressed or unwanted, a victim of trolling caused by returning rule-breakers and egomaniacs. All of this happening to you, with dark52 not doing anything about it. And normally, he would leave the moderators to do most of the work for him.

An admin should learn from his or her mistakes. But dark52 is one admin who apparently WILL NEVER learn from his. And even if dark52 changes his ways now or after this post is released, chances are he will go right back to being a recluse and sit quietly while watching rule-breakers run amok until he FEELS like stepping in.

The admin will also repeatedly claim that he still “cares” about his community, something his white knights want to hear and prove others of how “wrong” they are about the admin. 

But in the end, ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS

And dark52′s actions have shown that he does NOT care: if you are harassed or not, what his moderators think about certain scenarios AND their inputs, unless it’s regarding the very thing that is keeping his forum going: Skylanders.

I’ve been on darkSpyro for ages, and it’s hard to leave a place where I grew up going to after a day’s work. But with the way things are on the forum, and the admin STILL showing no signs of improvement on his moderation AND being biased, I’ve had no choice but to move on.

So I ask you, users. Would you want to join a nice looking forum like darkSpyro.net, but with a reclusive, extrememly biased and ignorant admin like dark52

I wouldn’t. 

But in the end it’s your choice. You may like the forum just because of how fancy it looks or it’s the only popular place to see new Spyro or Skylanders info. But remember that in the end, it is run by a user - a user whose actions can either make your time on darkSpyro fun or outright miserable and unenjoyable.

The egotistical white knights of dark52 have already posted about this on the forum somewhere, in which dark52 responded with his repeated phrase that he “cares about the community” and all that. But don’t fall for his false claims and lies. As I said before, actions speak louder than words. And dark52 rarely communicates with users anyways.

Sungjin

Originally posted by yugyuumy

To say that you were stressed about the acne that popped up all over your face would be an understatement. You were nervous about seeing Sungjin, and when you finally met up with him, you tried to keep your face somewhat covered. Once he realized what was going on, he was quick to comfort you, and told you that you look amazing, acne or no acne.

“It happens to everyone, so don’t stress about it. It’s not even a big deal, so uncover that pretty face of yours so I can see your smile.”

Wonpil

Originally posted by helloday6

When Wonpil looks at you, he pretty much looks exactly like the heart eyes emoji. He’s whipped in every sense of the word. Finding the stretch marks hiding under your clothes wasn’t a big deal to him at all, he thinks they’re just one more thing to love about you. No matter what you think about them, Wonpil is always more than happy to sit down and tell you how much he loves you and your body.

“Those marks make you so much more real, Y/N. Nobody is perfect, and I don’t want “perfect”. I want what I love, and that’s you, from head to toe.“

Dowoon

Originally posted by youngk

You often complained about the stretch marks on your thighs and tummy, which always made Dowoon really upset. One day, while you were standing in front of a mirror and sighing, he broke. He told you how much he loved your body, and how every single inch of you was beautiful to him. It made him feel awful to hear you tearing yourself down, especially because he sees every mark on your body as perfection.

“You’re so beautiful Y/N, don’t say those things. I don’t care if you hate the marks, they’re a part of you and you’re perfect the way you are.”

Jae

Originally posted by fyeahparkjaehyung

While you were busy worrying about a breakout on your forehead, Jae was busy appreciating how good you looked. In his mind, none of those little things matter, and you could probably show up to a date in sweatpants and a baggy shirt and he would still see an angel. Your “flaws” (they’re not actually flaws though) just made you more loveable to him.

“All these things that you stress about, do you think they make me love you any less? They don’t, and if anyone says otherwise then they’re lying.”

Young K

Originally posted by helloday6

When you first wore something semi-revealing in front of Young K, you were honestly terrified. No one has the perfect body, but you were still scared he would judge you. Young K could tell you were worried, so he took an “actions speak louder than words” approach and just smiled at you for a bit before grabbing you and kissing you.

“You look so good, Y/N. I’m so lucky that I get to be with you, you’re like a solid 100/10. Everyone is gonna be so jealous of me when I walk with you.”

Mishas POV

When I opened the message, just a few minutes after it got in, I felt guilty when I only read the introduction. It was wrong, I wasn’t called Dmitri, yeah I was given that name but I don’t use it anymore. I sat on my bed and stared at my phone. I regretted not telling her my real name, of course it was a risk on the first moment, but she wouldn’t think that I would really be on tumblr, nobody knows that and by the amount of family-members there were surely some other Mishas. But now? If I told her now she will certainly get the relation of those two names I told her. I had to play Dmitri for a while, even if I felt bad with it.

Washington’s Rules of Civility & Decent Behaviour In Company and Conversation (part 1)

Here we are, after a ridiculous result on the election. The times to come will be hard and complicated, and most probably there will be people with a total lack of respect for others since the chosen president shows that about half of the USA supports being disrespectful, racist and intolerant.

But not us. No, sir! We all know that this is the very right time to behave like real ladies and gentlemen, and treat all people as equals in the most civil ways. So here are the 110 rules that the 16 year-old George Washington copied by hand from Francis Hawkins’ “Youths Behavior, or Decency in Conversation Amongst Men” (published in 1640, and taken from the French Jesuits composition from 1595), and they are still as universal now as they were in the 18th century, even if they sound a little outdated. I’ve added some notes taken from the Foundations Magazine” to some key rules for all of us to follow and divided the rules in two parts so we’ll have two long posts and not one super-long post XD.

A: Now I’m aware not everyone is happy about the results of this election, and those who aren’t might have been asking themselves, “what’s in this for me?” Well, I assure you that I know a position like mine must be earned, and I intend to do that. For all citizens, I want to set up a new channel on TV and on BerryTube, updating people about current projects and political situations, as well as documentaries explaining political procedures for more transparency. From now on, a trained team will also go through every one of your petitions and criticism you explicitly send me on social media, forwarding the unique and serious ones to me.

But I know what numerous wise people have said before about promises…”actions speak louder than words”. So I will end with this, determined to let my actions speak for me in the next few years. Thank you.
