spits thank you for the compliment too!!

Life Everlasting

Donovan, Elizabeth, James March x Reader

There was never a dull moment with your best friend Donovan and the love of his life, Elizabeth. She’s also referred to as “The Countess” by most. From the wildest parties to killing for blood, it was a unique friendship you shared.

1994 was when Donovan was turned. He went through a low phase of his life that resorted him to doing drugs and hanging around that blonde, frizzy-haired druggie, Sally McKenna. He couldn’t handle the dosage he injected, and luckily for him, The Countess was there to save his life and they’ve been together ever since.

When The Countess informed her brunette lover boy about being a blood sucker, he didn’t believe it at her first until she showed him her photos from every decade that she was lucky enough to be a part of as early as the 1920’s.

Of course, since Donovan was so infatuated with her, he wanted to be turned into what she is. And when he had a thirst he felt like he could never quench, she served him blood from her secret stash.

It didn’t take long for Donovan to tell you about his and Elizabeth’s nature. In fact, you wanted to become what they are because of the promise of “life everlasting”. Being able to live forever meant endless possibilities to you. Lucky for you, The Countess was more than willing to turn you since you’re her man candy’s best friend.


Rarely do you ever step foot inside of their residence, the Hotel Cortez because you were always out at parties and even traveling to all sorts of countries. But when you do step on the grounds of the hotel, it’s mainly you waiting in the lobby for Donovan and Elizabeth to come strutting out of the elevator.

You arrived earlier than usual today and you shot your best friend a text message about your arrival.

Donovan: “Just hopped in the tub. Feel free to come up if you want.”

Great. Knowing Donovan, he takes the longest baths and takes years doing his hair. You passed on his offer to be an occupant in his suite seeing that there’s a bar upstairs that you’d rather tend to. It was like a ghost town within these walls and the only sounds you hear is the music coming from the Blue Parrot Lounge. The lady tending the bar, Liz Taylor, isn’t a stranger to you as you know she’s been working this bar for many years.

“Well you’re a sight for sore eyes. How’ve you been?” Liz asked, sliding a napkin your way, knowing you’ll be ordering a drink.

“I’ve be great. I’m just, you know, waiting on my best friend who won’t be ready anytime soon.” You rolled your eyes at the thought of having to wait because you despise waiting on people.

“And what’s your poison for today, hmm?”

“I’ll take a Long Island, Liz.”

“Of course.”

All of a sudden, the air around you reaked of cigarettes. You no longer are the only customer of Liz Taylor seeing from the corner of your eye, someone sitting just 1 bar stool away from you. You couldn’t help but slightly turn your head to look and to your misfortune, it’s the one person you despise most in this world, Sally Fucking McKenna. When Donovan’s mom confessed that she was responsible for Sally’s death, all you could think was good riddance.

“Look what the cat dragged in.” You spat before taking a sip of your alcoholic beverage.

“Yeah. Surprised to see you in this dump.” She took a puff of her cigarette before insulting you. “Bitch.”

“Sally. You will treat this fine lady with respect.” The deep, male voice coming from behind you startled you. Sally responded by ashing her cigarette and leaving elsewhere.

“Thank you. Even though I had it under control.” You thanked the stranger who made his way to your view.

“Nonsense. It is I that values every guest that steps foot inside my hotel.” The man sat beside you. He was fair skinned, with a pencil thin mustache, groomed hair and wore a suit. Other than the tone of his voice similar to Clark Gable, the cigarette holder in between his teeth threw you off a little. It’s like this man used a time machine being fresh out of the ‘20s.

“You own this hotel?”

“Ah yes. Introductions are in order. My name is James Patrick March.” He said proudly as he gazed at the walls and light fixtures. Liz slid him a glass of whiskey and he took a sip, then brought his focus back to you.

“I’m Y/N.” You felt that an introduction of your last name was too old and formal for you.

“Might I ask, what brings you to my hotel?”

“Oh I’m just waiting for a friend.”

“I see. Do you care for a companion while you wait?”

“Of course of course. I enjoy making new friends.”

James shot you a grin before getting Liz’s attention. “Cleopatra, would you please get Y/N whatever it is she may need until she scurries off with her acquaintances.”

“What? No? I’m okay. I don’t mind paying for my drinks. Plus, it won’t be too long until my friends are ready.”

“No matter, dear. See to it that a stunning creature such as yourself deserves it.”

You almost choked on your own spit from James’s statement. No one as handsome as him has ever complimented you in that way and you couldn’t help but blush. You even crossed one leg over the other and straightened your back to look put together.

“T-thank you.”

The next few minutes led to you asking a handful of questions about James’s beloved hotel seeing that it makes him happy talking about it. He even listened in on your babbling about the extravagant parties you’ve attended in the past. But not yet have you informed him about your nature of being a blood sucker in order to survive.

You were too caught up in this bubble with James that you didn’t even notice your friends appearing behind you. And this time around, you wanted them to take their time because you wanted to get to know James more and more. After all, he is very charming and also good looking.

“James.” Elizabeth spat.

“Elizabeth.” James spat back, standing up to show his height compared to hers. You narrowed your eyes at the two in confusion for the sound of hatred for each other.

“All ready to go, love?” Elizabeth asked, gazing at you with those eyes covered in well blended eyeshadow and sharp, winged eyeliner.

“Huh?” You snapped yourself out of it. “Oh yeah let’s go.” Just as you were about to gesture your hand to shake James’s hand, he acquires your fingers, lifting it so that he could plant a kiss on your knuckles. Elizabeth scoffed at his gesture but you didn’t even noticed.

“Pleasure meeting you, Y/N.” James slowly let’s go of your fingers in his grasp as if it was a delicate object.

“Nice meeting you too James. I’ll see you around.”

As you were walking closer to the entrance and further away from James, you couldn’t help but glance behind you to take one last good look at him. There he was, his hands behind his back, still standing in same spot you said your goodbyes at, just watching you as you leave.

Once you passed through the doors of the Hotel Cortez with Donovan and Elizabeth by his side, you could already hear a car honking from a distance being it’s normal to hear every 5 minutes in Los Angeles.

James also didn’t leave your mind just yet and you couldn’t help but burden Elizabeth with your question. “How do you and James know each other?”

“Oh, just an old friend, sweetheart. We go way back.” Elizabeth shot you a quick elevator look, then brought her view back to the traffic as the three of you wait for your limo. “But, I see he’s taken an interest in you.”

“Are you serious? You’re kidding.” You crossed your arms in front of you in disbelief as you stifled a smile. The Countess has to be lying. But then again, when has she ever lied to you? She’s always been a very straightforward person with you.

“Really best friend?” Donovan scoffed playfully. “Only a fool wouldn’t notice.”

Wow. At first you thought James was just being friendly to you only because you’re in his hotel. But, finding out that he views you more than just that, even though this is the first time meeting him, brings butterflies in your stomach.

And now you want to find the soonest excuse to come back to the hotel Cortez so that you can resume your conversation with Mr. March.

  • (Scene: Keith and Lance are in the training room taking a break after a sparring match. They have been dating for one week)
  • Keith, internally: Okay Keith, you can do this. Just compliment Lance. You’ve already swapped spit with him, this shouldn’t be too hard.
  • Keith, externally: Hey, Lance.
  • (Lance glances over as he wipes sweat off his face with the bottom of his shirt, exposing his abs)
  • Lance: What's up, Keith?
  • Keith, internally: FUCK, I'M SO GAY.
  • Keith, externally: Um... You- You fight good.
  • Keith, internally: Nailed it.
  • Lance, internally: Was... that a compliment? A terrible, awful, Keith-version of a compliment? Oh, wow. ... Get a grip, Lance! This is no time for blushing, he's waiting for a response!
  • Lance, externally: (Leans over and punches Keith in the arm) Thanks, buddy!
hot date

Anon: Dan Howell smut where you are coming home from being out with friends and Dan has been teasing you all night :) and you finally make him “pay”. Thanks :)

Might make a part two, but for now, here you go! -Miranda

Oh and outfit <——-

“Dan, come on we’re late!” I yell up the stairs to my always late, procrastinating boyfriend. I loved him to death, but he could not be on time to save his life.

Dan invited me to some fancy restaurant somewhere in downtown to meet some of his YouTube friends. The only one I’ve met before was Phil, and to be quiet honest, I was scared shitless. I wanted to impress them in anyway possible, and already being late didn’t help my case.

EXO’s reaction to falling in love with an American/Approaching an American

Anonymous said: If your requests are open, can you do the boys falling in love with an American? Pleeeeeaaasssseeee <3

Thank you for the request! I’m gonna guess that you meant it with language barriers and such! :) 

But I’m gonna have to make a twist to it, since “falling in love” is a long process! I will do “the meeting” part, but if you aren’t satisfied with it, then please message me again and I can do a part 2? <3

FOR THIS REASON, IT WILL BE QUITE LONG! SORRY ABOUT THAT.
__________________________________

Baekhyun: He’s at a bar with some of the other guys in America, as a small break from performing and such. He would approach you after some time of looking at you. “Hello I’m baekhyun!” he would say in a friendly voice, with quite a lot of accent. He would start a conversation with you in his broken english, but he would try his best. You would smile to him and try your best to understand what he says. “You drink want?” he would ask and gesture to the drinks. You understand him but giggle because of his bad english. He knows it’s bad so he chuckles awkwardly. “Sorry, not America person” he says flusteredly.

Chanyeol: He would try to make himself noticeable by purposely bumping into you slightly, and laughing extra loudly. He later concludes that that tactic doesn’t work on Americans (or at least not on you xD) so he decides that he wants to approach you. He goes to Kris to ask him how to say “hello” and such. *In Korean* “Yifan, how do you say hello my name is chanyeol, I saw you and thought you were pretty. I’m from South Korea so sorry about the bad english!” he would ask him eagerly. Kris then translates and Chanyeol tries to memorize it. He takes a deep breath and walks towards you. He taps your shoulder and you turn around. “Hello, my name Chanyeol, I think you are pretty and I see you. I from South Korea so sorry about engrish!” he would spit out because he’s nervous as heck. You giggle and answer him by telling him your name and thanking him for the compliment. He smiles and understands most of what you said. He keeps the conversation going the best he can by asking you random things.

Chen: He doesn’t think about it for too long and just goes up to you and catches your eyes. He bows a little and smiles charmingly. “Hello! I’m Chen!” he says in a high pitched tone and waits for you to answer. “Well hello Chen! I’m YN.” you say with a smile, having noticed his cute accent. He then smiles more and tries to continue, trying to talk english the best he can. “I give you drink?” he asks and points to the drinks at the bar. You nod happily. He takes your wrist gently and leads you to the bar where he buys a drink for you, also with funny english. While waiting for the drink he smiles a lot and says things he has heard on TV. “You are pretty!” he says and you blush. You keep talking for a long time and end up exchanging numbers.

D.O: He would have noticed you in the crowd but decided not to approach you, just because he didn’t want to get embarrassed. He would sit casually in between some of the other guys drinking a beer when someone taps his shoulder. He turns around and smiles, and sees you. “Hello, I was wondering if you maybe wanted to get a drink with me?” you would say, not knowing that he doesn’t speak fluent english. He would look confusedly at you, but still with happy eyes. You slowly realize that he didn’t understand and you get flustered and blush. He can see that you got embarrassed by the situation and quickly stands up and looks at you and shakes your hand, trying to fit in in American culture. “Hello, I’m Kyungsoo! I’m from South Korea. I not so good at english!” he says, trying to seem calm. You smile, still blushing. “I drink with you?” he asks, gesturing drinking with his hands. You nod and he nods back, smiling cutely.

Kai: He would notice you from afar and immediately wave to you and try to get your attention. You wave back and smile. He then disappears again and asks Suho for help with english. When he’s confident he walks over to you, smiling like an idiot. You see him coming and turn to him, and smile. “Hi!” you say expecting a “hi” back, but he freezes, and becomes unsure of his english. He stands still for a while just looking at you, and then suddenly turns around and hurries over to Suho and repeats the sentence to make sure it’s correct. Suho approves and Kai quickly walks back to you, who is standing in the same position as before. “Hi!” he tries and smiles. “You are cute, can I get number?” he says, not knowing it might sound a little progressive. You get flustered by the sudden request for your number, but you nod and take your phone up. “Where are you from?” you ask and he somehow understands. “Korea!” he says in a Korean style way. “Oh cool!” you say and find your number on your phone. He smiles and is proud of himself for being able to talk, and then goes up behind you and looks over your shoulder. “Number?” he asks and you nod again. “Yes, this is my number!” and he gets your number and then quickly disappears again. Later on the night he then texts you in broken english, having gotten help from all the guys to form a correct sentence. … (to be continued? haha)

Kris: Since he is fluent in english, this request doesn’t really fit on him…  Sorry! (Here, take my random gif as an apology! xD)

Lay: He would be super respectful and calmly approach you, using very short and simple sentences. He would be able to make sense, but he doesn’t understand a lot of what you’re saying. “Hello my name is Lay!” he says cutely and smiles, showing off his adorable dimples. “Hello Lay, I’m Y/N.” you answer and he smiles even more, knowing that he made himself understandable. He keeps eye contact with you while gesturing towards a table a little further away from all the others. You nod and smile brightly. “Yes?” he asks with a high pitched tone. “Yes!” you say and start to walk towards the table. He pulls out the chair for you, being a real gentleman. He then sits down himself and smiles to you again. “So, Lay? Where are you from?” you ask him since he doesn’t start the conversation. He listens carefully and nods slightly. “China!” he then says when he understands. He then thinks for a little bit and tries asking you some things. You understand and answer. The conversation goes on for long and you really click well!

Luhan: He would overrate his own ability to speak english and just go for it, but you doesn’t understand what he says at all and he gets super embarrassed and leaves without saying anything. Even though he messed up, you manage to get an impression of him and you think he’s cute. Therefore you decide to try to talk to him again, and this time he is much more humble and quiet. “Hello again, uhh I thought you were quite cute just now… Where are you from?” you ask, hoping he will understand. A big smile forms on his lips because he understood you. “I think you cute also! But I’m manly, not cute!” he says and laughs, a little hurt by being called cute (LOL, sorry not sorry). You also laugh and nod. “I china.” he says and smile to you. He hums and thinks for a bit to work up the courage to ask for your number. “Hmm, I can have phone?” he asks, not sure if he did well, and takes his phone out of his back pocket and points at it. Even though what he said didn’t completely make sense, you nod and take out your phone and show him your number so he can do his thing. When he is done writing down your number he smiles. “I will write you?” he says and waits for an answer. You nod, and he nods back. Then you separate and the next day he writes to you…

Sehun: He would have spotted you sitting with your girlfriends, and he would tap Suho’s shoulder and get really excited about seeing a pretty girl like you. *In korean* “Have you seen her? She’s so beautiful!” he would say, freaking out. *GIF* “I wanna talk to her! What do I say??” he ask Suho. Suho answers with something like: “Hello I’m Sehun, can I get you a drink?” and Sehun practices the sentence for about half an hour before he goes over to you. He smiles awkwardly at you and says his sentence, begging to dear god that he said it correctly. Even though he has a thick accent, you understand and smile to him. “Hi Sehun? Yes of course!” you say and stand up, signaling to your friends that you’re gonna go with him. He blushes when all your friends look at him and giggle. “I Korean are, so my english not good.” he says while walking, being serious and trying to be calm. You nod and smile at him. “Ohh okay! Cool!” you say and sound very enthusiastic to encourage him. He buys you the drink you want with difficulty but he ends up managing to get you the right one. He smiles to you and you smile back. You talk for the rest of the night, starting to understand each other by using lots of hand gestures and simple words.

Suho: When he sees you sitting all alone and looking sad by a table he quickly decides to go over and talk to you. He puts his head in front of yours and smiles brightly. “Hello, I’m Suho can I get you a drink?” he says with a cute accent. You smile, happy that someone is talking to you. You blush and look down, and he just keeps smiling sweetly. “Yes please” you say, and smile to him, still quite flustered. He then puts his hand out for you to take and bows slightly. You take his hand and get off your chair and follow him to the bar. He looks back at you and smiles again. When you reach the bar he helps you up on the bar chair and also gets up on one himself. “Two ‘Original Mai Tai’s please” he would say confidently to the Bartender, while resting his arms on the counter. His accent would be noticeable but you wouldn’t say anything about it since he had used the correct grammar and words up until now. Then he would ask you some stuff and keep the conversation going, though making a few mistakes. At the end of the night he would ask for your number and you would nod happily.

Tao: (Tao has gotten a lot better at English since being in America, but I will do this reaction using his “old” skills - meaning that he is not very good at english in this one c:) He would approach you confidently, kinda forgetting that he’s not so great at speaking english. He pokes your shoulder and smiles to you. “I’m Tao, what are you?” he would ask, not knowing that it didn’t mean exactly what he thought. You laugh a little and smile to him. “Sorry, what do you mean ‘what am I’?” you ask and look curiously at him. He doesn’t understand what you say so he just ends up staring confusedly at you.

Xiumin: He would be kinda scared to approach you because of the language barrier, but he would man up and go over to you. “Hi, I’m Minseok!” he would say with his high pitched tone, smiling nervously. You smile back at him not noticing any accent so you think he’s fluent. “Hello ~ I’m Y/N!” you say and he understands. “Can I ask you to have drink?” he then says, and that’s when you notice a quite strong accent and also not very perfect english. You smile anyways and nod to him. He nods back and goes to the bar alone. He later comes back with two drinks and sits down across from you. He starts a conversation by asking you basic questions like what your favorite color is. You talk together for quite a long time, and he definitely struggles with explaining what he means, but you somehow understand anyways.
