College!AU Minghao
  • major: environmental science 
  • minor: marine biology 
  • sports: fencing
  • clubs: oceanography club, volunteer at the aquarium, and part time chinese language tutor 
  • minghao is the kind of person that everyone knows by name but beyond that he’s a mystery??? 
  • like no one really knows anything personal about him aside from the fact that he likes animals and takes like 327093 bio courses for his major
  • when some1 asked him what grade he got for a lab minghao just smiled at them and left like that was his response and the person was like,,,,,,,what does that mean and jun (official minghao translator) was like “it means you dont ask people about their grades. esp not a genius like minghao” 
  • tbh minghao just didn’t hear him because he was thinking about what snack to get from the vending machine but jun likes being dramatic and minghao doesn’t have the energy to stop him
  • sooooo why environmental science and marine biology?? well minghao has always admired animals, but after getting a volunteering job @ the aquariums gift shop in high school he got to spend time looking at all the different animals that exist in the water and he was just like holy shit
  • minghao “seals? basically water dogs. sharks? also basically water dogs except like maybe not as playful….angry water dogs there we go.”
  • he still volunteers at the aquarium but instead of just working in the shop he actually gets to help out the trainers and he’s even got to do the feeding show with the penguins and it’s adorable he just has the biggest smile on when he’s around all the animals
  • mingyu: “so like …. you know those sardines that you feed the penguins and seals like could a human also eat-” 
  • minghao: “never speak to me again”
  • minghao’s interest and love for the animals is like very subtle, like you’d look at him and he’s standing there listening to music and he’s lean and handsome and you’re like ‘wow, he looks like he’d be a model or……a dancer’
  • but then he pulls out his textbook on the ocean and you’re like what and minghao’s phone case has jellyfish on it. it’s adorable. its like what you see is not what you get with him. its BETTER
  • he got into fencing after he found out dance team wasnt like an official sport and tbh he got recruited by captain jackson wang because he saw minghao tutoring in chinese @ the library and he was like wow cool another native chinese speaker!! so he went over to make friends and when minghao stood up jackson was like ‘you’re tall’ and minghao was like hmmmm??? and jackson was like ‘join fencing club’
  • at first minghao was like nah but dance team meet on the same days as he volunteers so he was like maybe fencing wont be that bad,,,, (also jackson wouldn’t stop chasing him around campus to join)
  • minghao in the fencing uniform with his hair pulled back with like a band ,,,,, imagine ,,,,,,
  • im also thinking like minghao whose wearing like khakis and like a windbreaker when he’s out in the field doing research but like on campus he’s pretty stylish like he has those grey sweatpants and street brand name sneakers and also
  • minghao with a helix + graduate lobe piercings…….one of the studs on his ears is a little starfish….ok anyway
  • so you’re always in the library because your roommate is …. to put is nicely……extremely social
  • as in they always have people over and you’ve got essays and tests coming up and you don’t want to try to be studying with the sound of laughter and other people yelling and so basically your dorm is the library
  • and every monday + thursday minghao sits at the table next to yours and tutors in chinese. a lot of the time though, no one shows up and so you kind of just see him sitting there with his notebook open, twirling his pen around his fingers and dozing off
  • and like a lot of people you just know him by name and it’s not like you really really really find him interesting, it’s just you two always see each other and you know at some point it becomes just common courtesy to at least smile at each other
  • but that’s all it is, smiles. 
  • except is it? like u start noticing the smallest, cutest things he does. like the way he runs his fingers over lips when he’s thinking really hard about something, or the way his voice changes when he starts speaking chinese, the way he rolls his eyes when mingyu stop to visit just to bother him about food or something and the way he laughs and covers it with his hand when seokmin sees him and makes a joke
  • and oh god you tell yourself: do not develop a crush on minghao. it’s futile 
  • but minghao notices you too.
  • he might look like he’s reading up on biohazardous chemicals affecting sea life  but from the corner of his eye he sees the way your cardigan is slipping off your shoulder. the way you toy with the keychain on your bag. the way you hold you coffee with both hands
  • you two have caught each other looking but all you could do is just….smile. like oh it’s an accident, we didn’t meet eyes because we were staring…..
  • and then the ghost incident happens
  • and by that i mean, you’re staying late in the library once again because this time your roommate has a significant other over and they’re texting you like “sock is on the dorm doorknob if You know WhaT I  m e an (((((;” and you’re like oh my god 
  • but you had two 3 hours lectures today and your eyes are fogging up and you rest your head on your bag for a second and all you see is the outline of the person at the table next to you and before you know you’re lights out. zZZZZZZZ
  • when you wake up tho…….it’s quiet……like more quiet and you look up to see that the lights are dim and that the tables are all empty
  • and you’re like wth what time is it and when you check your phone it’s like at 3% because iTS LIKE TEN O CL Ock the LIBRARy CLSOED an hour ago
  • and you’re like holyshit no no no n o and you get up in a panic but then stop because…..there’s a person
  • also asleep……………at the table next to yours
  • and it takes you a second but you see the hair,,,,and the starfish earring and you’re like 
  • “minghao???”
  • carefully you go over and see that he’s laying on a textbook with candy wrappers near his hand and you’re like ?? he was here when i was first falling asleep,,,why’d he stay so long
  • but you gently shake his shoulder and he comes to and he’s like huh hmm??? and it’s cute he has his hair a bit messy and there’s a piece of candy stuck to his lip and you’re like !!!!! “hey,,,,we both fell asleep and i think we might be locked….in here…”
  • minghao wakes up instantly and he stands up and is like ???? seriously and you two walk over to the front where the librarian usually sits and ofc she’s not there and minghao checks the doors which are ofc locked and you both are like: we’re fucked
  •  and you’re like “at least it isn’t dark-”
  • but just as you finish your sentences the lights go out and you’re like ARE YOU KIDDING and minghao is like the whole school has automatic lighting that stops at 10:30 …. the gym also has this,,, and you’re like o h 
  • and minghao’s like “let me use my phone’s flashlight” and he turns it on and you both make your way back to the tables you were at and like it’s awkward for a moment until you’re like 
  • “when did you fall asleep,,,,because i think i saw you before i - like….knocked out..”
  • and minghao looks down and is like um,,,,idk maybe at 8 i was just tired from practice or whatever (actually this is a lie and ull find out as we go in hehe)
  • and you’re like oh!! you’re on a sports team and minhao’s like yeah fencing and you’re like wOW thats cool i know jackson is the captain and minghao laughs because ofc everyone knows jackson
  • and its hard to initate conversation because u two have literally never talked and finally minghao is like “whats,,,whats your name? im sorry, i don’t know it..” and you tell him and he repeats it and then,,, say something in chinese??? and you’re like huh and he’s like “i was just translating it,,,i do that i just wanted to hear how it would sound.”
  • and ok your heart doesnt skip a beat because thats adorable except duh ofc it does
  • and then you’re like “oh, what if the library ghost comes out?” and minghao is like ???? and you’re like
  • “the library ghost! you know the one everyone talks about at freshmen orientation???” and minghao is like shaking his head because he’s like im a transfer i dont know,,,,but tell me
  • and you’re like OH well,,, there’s this story that there was a kid here in the 90s who used to get bullied in the non-fiction section by some mean upperclassmen and that one day he vanished and no one knows where,,,,but everyone says that he sits in that section and cries all night long because of the bullies!!! 
  • and as you’re saying this minghao is like ……..really? and he just laughs at the end because ghosts aren’t real
  • and you’re like heY you don’t know that!! and minghao’s like “nah, there’s no way, scientifically it’s impossible.”
  • and you’re like,,,,,,,,but ghosts defy science and minghao’s like nothing defies science 
  • and you get up and you’re like “let’s go check it out then!” and minghao looks up at you and he’s like ???? you mean go to that section and you’re like yeah…..ARe you SCAREd???? and minghao gets up like What NO
  • and its cute his all defensive voice and so you’re like ok!!! let’s go 
  • and so the two of you venture through the aisles of books to the non-fiction corner and you sit down and you pat the spot next to you and
  • minghao looks a lil uneasy but he sits down
  • and you’re like hehe if anything happens he’ll freak out and i won-
  • but then like his shoulder touches yours because your so close and you’re like 
  • ,…….I ….D I d………not….think this…through……..
  • because now you’re confined in this little corner with this tall handsome boy and its dark and you start like short-circuiting because ohgodohogodohogohdo
  • and minghao feels you try to scoot away and he’s like nervous too he keeps fumbling with his phone and then suddenly there’s this loud screeching sound and you’re like
  • THE GHOST 
  • and minghao’s like WHAT
  • and you two jump up and you grab his hand and you two jsut start running
  • but then you hear the screeching sound again and you instinctively jump in fear and thats when you feel minghao pull you back into his arms 
  • and your back is against his warm chest and he’s like whispering in your ear that it’s not a ghost, it can’t be but it might be someone else and you two need to get out of there
  • and you’re like ,,,, honestly you didn’t expect anything to happen so  you just agree and let minghao let you go and grab your hand and run
  • and the screeching happens again and you’re like what The he LLL i  S that
  • and minghao’s like,,, he sees the door to the library office is still open so he pulls you inside and shuts the door and is like GET dOWn if its a murderer he cant see us ok 
  • and you duck under a desk and minghao is like leaning against the door
  • and the screeching noise gets louder and louder AND LOUDER and then the door starts being knocked on and you’re like oh my god im going to die. we are going to die
  • and minghao tries to hold it back but you hear keys and minghao pulls back and runs over to you under the desk 
  • and when it opens…………..
  • the lights turned on the maintenance guy is like what the heck are you two doing here
  • and you and minghao are staring at him with wide eyes and when the maintence guy pulls the garbage can into the room the wheels screech against the floor
  • and you and minghao are like
  • oh my god …. we’re idiots
  • and the maintenance guy is like -_____- you kids are crazy how could you do something like that in the library, that’s inappropriate!! 
  • and you get what the guy thinks happened because minghao is still clutching you against his chest and you’re like AHEM and minghao lets go
  • and you’re like no, sir we were locked in and we thought that you were a murderer-
  • and the guy is like ME???? a MURDERER??? 
  • and you’re like ThaTs not what I M ENA
  • and minghao gets up and he’s like ,,,,we’re sorry we’ll leave and pretend this didnt happen
  • and the maintenance guy like grumbles but flicks his arm and minghao grabs you before you can say anything and pulls you out back to the table to get your stuff
  • and once you’re out like its dark and cold and you’re shivering because this damn cardigan is thing and minghao shrugs off his sweatshirt and hands it to you and you’re like UM and he’s like “the walk to the dorm is going to be far.”
  • and you’re like yes but you don’t have to- and minghao is like “i have to.”
  • and so you put the sweatshirt on and its long and you giggle and minghao is like,,, that screeching back there sounded like an orca whale…and you’re like what an interesting way to describe a sound and minghao blushes but you cant see it
  • and you and minghao decide that if either one of you starts sleeping in the library the other person should wake them up because we do not need this episode to happen again
  • and when you go home, you can remember being pulled against minghao’s chest and you can smell him on the clothes and you’re like
  • wow. crush on minghao? me? you fuckingfjgof BET
  • and when you’re back in the library on monday you want to give minghao his sweater back
  • but when he walks in mingyu is there and you feel a little shy but you go over and you’re like “thanks for letting me borrow this-” and you pass it over to minghao
  • and mingyu is wiggling his eyebrows and minghao is literally like shut up and mingyu is like WhaT  i didnt even say anything,,,,
  • before you turn back minghao’s like oh! here- and he passes you a couple of candies in red wrappers and you’re like ???
  • and he’s like “they’re from china, my mom sends me a bag every month. i know you stay here till closing, so remember to eat.”
  • mingyu voice: smooth moves man
  • you and minghao: blushing, except minghao is about to put mingyu into a chokehold and ur like gtg
  • and for a while it goes back to just smiling at each other and it hurts because you really,,,,really,,,,,,really like him now
  • and then one day you’re napping in the library again because your roommmates like dont come home if u dont wanna see something explicit 
  • when you feel someone gently brush your hair from your face and slowly opening your eyes you see minghao leaning over you and you’re like hmmm
  • and he’s like OH you’re ….. you’re awake,,,, um……its just we promised we’d wake each other up if we fell asleep but i just-
  • and you smile at him and minghao decides that you know,,if he’s going to wake you up he might as well do it properly

Hey guys, it’s been awhile but I’ve been so busy with cosplay and college I haven’t had the time to do much. But, I did manage to finish my newest custom Disney doll: Ariel in her seafoam dress from the ending of The Little Mermaid. I really wanted her to look like the ocean had formed around her when the dress was made, so to start the dress is made from three layers of metallic blue fabric, a sea blue organza, and a powder blue organza to create a look like water. The dress is beaded in holographic sequins and seaglass beads, cascading down in a pattern reminiscent of ripples in a pool. The scoop neckline is finished with string beads, and the dress ends in concentrated rhinestones like a wave coming to shore. Her look is finished with starfish earrings and a zipper in the back. I hope you guys like her!

Chapter Three

     By the time you had unpacked and finally got settled in, it was the middle of August. School started in September and you honestly weren’t ready to go back to school yet. You hadn’t seen Luke alone since that night, but you guys had friendly text conversations every now and then.

8 and 12 are stranded on a boat on the sea. Who shoves the other one overboard first?

Damara and Spades Slick are stranded on a boat on the sea. Who shoves the other one overboard first?

It’s a race, but only Slick is actually trying to get anyone overboard.  Damara is either trying to murder him and cannibalize the corpse or initiate a tryst—it’s not exactly clear.  Also of note: they were trying to kill each other before it was even apparent they were in any danger.  They don’t even have any supplies in the boat to fight over.  To an outside observer, this situation would look really stupid, except everything has been censored to protect the viewing audience.

Slick winds up stealing all the life jackets and taking his chances overboard.  Damara follows him into the water.  She clings to him like a terrifying, pointy-clawed starfish, grinning from ear to ear.

They kill a bunch of sharks.

what I don’t need: boys telling me that i’m pretty

what I do need: the starfish earrings from aquamarine whispering compliments in my ear telling me what a beautiful/smart/overall amazing person I am
