Considering the staggering amount of votes this one got, here you go!
ok so it’s my sweet sixteen and i took two of my closest friends paintballing. We started off alone with just the three of us. Me and this girl formed a truce so we could take out her brother. He found a building with a roof to shoot from so i was criss crossing and sliding behind shelters.
Long story short with this guy i snuck up behind his building and shot him point blank in the ass while he was climbing a ladder.
Except now his sister is my enemy and a much larger threat.
I criss cross my way back narrowly avoiding being shot. I skid to a stop behind this bush with a really gappy fence and go GOOD ENOUGH BRING IT ON and poke my muzzle through. I cant particularly see but I remembered seeing her in a little chapel window. I aim that general direction and open fire. I immediately hear HIT. When she comes out i see where i hit her. Right between the eyes like I couldnt do that again if I tried. Ill take it.
We’re back at the base ops and these massive dudes come over like “yo wanna join us we need more players” and we’re like “oh ya bud the more the merrier” so we go over and everyone is freaking massive and there’s us three tiny lil teenagers. I over hear they’re a military team and just sigh because i know im dead this is just my luck
Apparently they wanted us so that they could simulate having civilian to protect, who were also armed. (They did a piss poor job of this seriously wtf)
So the game starts and im seperated from my friends. They’re on the opposite team.
Im sticking near the leader and just generally trying not to die. He’s giving me orders as softly and nicely as he can, thinking Im scared. I mean really who wouldnt be?
I wasnt. I was ready to kick butt. When I am silent, be afraid, im planning something.
Next thing i know he’s gone. Shot, running, hiding i dont know and i dont care i gotta move there are way too many heavily armed men in these woods for me to be comfortable
Im trekking through this woodsy area keeping as low as possible because the other team has a freaking sniper and im not dealing with that no thanks im just a tiny teenager leave me alone ok
Im doing my thing and trying to find people to shoot because everyone is mia when i see people ahead.
Not my people.
And they havent seen me yet. Im looking around looking for some decent cover or somewhere to take them by surprise and there is nothing. The entire area is just thistle bushes with massive thorns. And then my idea hits. A wicked, mischievous idea. I grin behind my mask and get ready to lay my trap.
I plop myself down right in the middle of these thistles and army crawl to the path their taking and just lay still.
These guys dont see me.
They’re not expecting someone to be in these bushes cause who is that dumb.
The one dudes boot is an inch from my hand and i spring up and yell SURPRISE before shooting him right in the chest and then the two behind him. Three down, way too many to go. I ran away cackling like a witch
Dont die dont die dont die
I head out again and meet up with some more of my group. They stick me at the back to keep me out of harms way. A valiant, if ineffective effort
Enter enemy attack.
We get split up into two groups to flank them and i end up alone again. I moving slowly, spinning in a slow circled because I am EFFED
I’m a tiny lil sixteen year old girl, all alone, with about 15 guns pointed at me. I was completely surrounded. My comrades who had fled to live and fight another day are now making haste towards me like WHO LEFT THE KID BEHIND HELP HER and im like
hell no i got this
I went absolutely ape shit on their asses.
Shots are flying around me like crazy and everyone is screaming. One of the enemies shouts FALL BACK WHAT THE FU–
I hear one if my partners like HOLY SHIT SHE’S ALIVE
I barrel over one of the attackers and side arm his gun away. I break out from the Circle of Doom and make a mad dash for cover.
I leap into the air and spin to fave them. Im not getting shot in the back I an a WARRIOR
I just start spraying with a battle cry to rattle the heavens
I smack back down to earth and land in a crouch
Every single one of the attackers were shot, usually multiple times, and i didnt get shot once. Frankly no clue how i managed but I am NOT questioning it. Luck or skill I dont care
Eventually it was down to two people. Me and the other teams captain.
He’s a big, scary dude. He had a custom gun that could pop off a frankly alarming amount of shots per second.
The odds arent exactly in my favour.
We find each other right in the middle with trenches and tiny little metal fences for cover. Im walking through like plz dont shoot me i am small be nice
The dude pops up from a trench and starts firing. No mercy here.
I duck behind a fence and it is the most pathetic thing i have ever seen.
I have barely enough room to crouch behind it because it’s so small. The other dude finds a nice big trench and big fence the lucky lil jerk.
So we’re poppin up like weasels trying to get a shot in. I cant hit him, he cant hit me. Up and down and up and down. My fence angles down ever so slightly so im tucked in as tightly as I could. My fence is rattling as shot after shot after shot hits. The shots stop, i poke my muzzle over the edge amd lay down some fire.
And the cycle repeats
I get tired of this little exchange so the next time he goes down i lay on some cover fire and sprint like hell for a near by trench like i am just bookin it thinking dont shoot me dont shoot me imma kill you
i slide in and pop up just as he rises to take a shot. Except im not where he thought id be.
I shot him right in the side of his bald lil head.
So i won. My team legit carried me on their shoulders back to base ops
And that’s the time I, a sixteen year old girl, beat a team of militarily trained behemoths
some tips from your local depressed college student
cheap paper towels + hydrogen peroxide = acne treatment (just be careful not to bleach your eyebrows unless you’re into that idk)
use the acne face soap on your chest, upper back, and shoulders instead, since it doesn’t do shit for your face (or at least not mine)
no one is stopping you from bushing your teeth in the shower except yourself (just eliminating that extra step of going to the sink makes it so much easier for me)
did you know you’re actually supposed to put on stick deodorant at night??? It has time to absorb while u sleep or stare at the ceiling in dispair whichever works best for u
carrots and/or apples dipped in peanut butter = dinner (or just plain peanut butter but it helps to get a lil something extra if you can manage it)
if you give yourself an allowance of skip days (i’m talking like 3 or 4 max) then it can be easier to go to class if you remind yourself “i only have 2 skip days left, I’m gonna save them until I REALLY need them” (think of skip days like non-essential items in a video game - you could use them now, but what if you really need them during the final boss battle later on??)
the velveeta microwave dinners aren’t great but they’re cheap and better than some other options out there. the mac n cheese w/ meat ones can smell a bit like dog food but they still taste pretty good
if you like peppermint hot chocolate - save the after dinner mints you get at places like Chik Fil A and italian restaurants and such and then drop a couple in your mug before you put it in the microwave. boom.
if you’ve got a sore throat, just take a spoonful of honey (or squirt it directly from the bottle to your mouth if you’re a heathen like me) and go find a hot drink
for essays - highlight/number/circle/whatever you want to do to make ‘em stand out the quotes you want to use in your paper, then go take a shower or get something to eat or just watch like a 15-20 minute video on YouTube and then come back to your paper, pop those fuckin’ quotes in the right order, and write in the smart bullshit around them
okay actually the one thing that I will spend a little extra money on is cough drops bc i get a sore throat all the damn time and the only kind i will buy anymore is Halls Breezers they taste like candy instead of koala shit my personal favorite is cool berry but the orange creme ones are good too honestly these cough drops have saved my life at least six times now
coffee is gr9 but don’t forget to have some water every day too dehydration is NOT FUN (speaking from very painful personal experience)
Find Keeper of Streams and Waterfalls Min Yoongi (here) Find Keeper of Rabbits and Deer Jeon Jungkook (here) Find Keeper of Trees and Roots Park Jimin (here) Find Keeper of Birds and Raptors Kim Taehyung (here) Find Keeper of Wolves Kim Seokjin (here)
the only keeper who actively enjoys human interaction
all of the other keepers,,,especially seokjin and jungkook don’t understand,,,humans are hunters they come and destroy the forest and the creatures
but hoseok is always talking about those few who dont,,,the people who come and enjoy the flowers,,,,,lay in the meadows and draw or write,,,,and what about the young kids who have fun climbing trees or making daisy crowns
for hoseok,,,,there’s a good side to humans no matter how much the keepers insist that it’s better to keep away if anything
usually in the summer he walks around shirtless
and down his arms starting from the shoulders is a tattoo of ivy vines which when hoseok runs his fingers over the tattoo and chants an old spell the vines can grow out of the tattoo and he can extend them to help him get up trees or use as rope
another thing is that when he activates this ability his eyes glow green
a lot of the time he wears has seeds hanging off a small pouch on his waist and he’ll go around the forest planting new flowers
and he never picks flowers,,,,because that’d essentially be killing them,,,,but when some of the flowers fall to the forest floor he’ll collect them and either crush the petals to make paint,,,,use the leaves for tea,,,,or just decorate his hair with them
rumored to also have the ability to bring dying plants back to life with a touch of his hand
keeper jimin once added that hoseok’s smile seemed to have a radiance of life too but hoseok laughed it off
bugs like him a lot!! it’s common for him to have a butterfly sit on his shoulder or fireflies to help guide him through the forest at night
but hoseok himself is kinda scared of them so when something with more than four legs comes by he’s like,,,,,he’s like i gtg
even though he lives in a forest like bugs still make him shiver ,,,,, but also catch him lying in a fresh meadow comfortable in the grass like it’s ocean water,,,,he’s complex but i guess it is his job to take care of the plants
is showing up to keeper meetings with dirt on his hands and shirtless chest and jimin understands the struggle since he watches over the trees but namjoon is always like dudes,,,,go to yoongi’s waterfall and take a shower,,,,and yoongi is like HEY who said i wanted dirt in my water
hoseok always explains that FIRSTLY flowers live in “soil” not “dirt”
thinks every kind of plant is pretty,,,not just big vibrant flowers,,,,the small blades of grass are nice too
you,,,,,find yourself in the forest one night,,,desperately running toward the forest
the only thing you have with you is a lantern and a bag of food you’d managed to steal from the market that afternoon
and when you finally push through the bushes and into an open meadow you collapse into the soft grass and close your eyes
because well,,,,,,,,,you’re a thief
and it’s not like you want to be,,,,you just don’t have a choice because you can’t find a job in the village and you’re far away from your home,,,,so the last couple of summer nights have consisted of you trying to grab bread or vegetables when no one would see
but finally,,,,,you’d gotten caught and so you only know one place where you’d be safe: the forest
thankfully,,,,it’s that time of the year where it’s not cold and so you’ve been ok with spending your nights here,,,,in the wilderness
but also,,,,,every night the sound of wolves and birds,,,,,it,,,,it just made sleeping hard
and as you sit up,,,rummaging through your bag to pull out half a loaf of bread that when you bite into taste like nothing but paper
you hear a low growl from a bush nearby
and you freeze,,,,because,,,,,,what,,,,,,,is that,,,,
but the growl gets louder and and you stand up,,, body shaking in fear,,,,and right as the bush opens up u can see the eyes of,,,,some animal and the snarling mouth
but before it comes out so you can see it’s body,,,,,you see something appear
a man???? whose tall,,,,wearing what looks like far over his shoulders and he seems to say something that makes the animal retreat and then???? he’s gone to
and you almost pass out from shock but u just sit back into the grass and mumble “was,,,,was that a forest fairy-”
“you’re right, it was!”
the voice comes from behind you and you get so startled that your first reaction is to turn and throw a punch but the boy behind you dodges easily and smiles
and ur like ??!?!?!? wh???? who????what???
and hoseok grins even wider and is like “that was a forest fairy. seokjin. not the most talkative,,,,but i told him to calm the wolves down for you,,,they won’t bother you tonight!”
shaking your head to see if ur not like??? imagining this boy up you ask “who-who are you?? a fairy??”
with a nod of his head he puts his hand out and is like “jung hoseok, keeper of the flowers at your service!”
and ur like keeper- flowers - jung- hoseok?? and he’s like mhmm!!! anyway why are u,,,,a human,,,,,sleeping in this meadow
and u kind of try to figure out what to say but u basically just go “i don’t have a home.” and hoseok points to the bread u dropped and is like “is that dinner?”
and u kind of get embarrassed but nod slowly and hoseok tilts his head and he’s like “when humans eat here,,,they’re always eating more than that,,,,,,,” and you’re like “because they have money,,,,,i stole that bread”
and hoseok pouts n is like “stealing isn’t good,,,but,,,,,i can see that u dont mean harm.”
and you wonder what he means,,,,but hoseok is basically referring to the fact that you don’t pick flowers,,,,,,you don’t steal flowers from the forest like other people,,,,,but he knows it’d be hard to explain to you so instead he offers u his hand again to help you up and goes “come with me,,i know where we can get something more for you to eat!!”
and ,,,,,,something feels awfully strange about following a random boy into the deeper parts of the woods
but you see the vines tattooed on his arms,,,,,the rugged messy hair,,,,,the way fireflies flock around you to light the path
and you,,,,,,believe wholeheartedly this guy isn’t human
and after winding through trees and bushes hoseok stops infront of a large oak and pressing his hand against it the bark moves to create a doorway and down into the earth you follow hoseok
into a small,,,cozy den where u assume he lives
and it’s lit by candles with pressed flowers hanging upside down over the walls and pots stacked on top of pots,,,,barrels full of seeds,,,,a makeshift door of leaves woven together
and the furniture is all made of wood with carved designs and hoseok tells u to sit while he opens up some barrels and pulls out different fruit and vegetables
and you,,,,,feel you’re in a fairy tale,,,,,,,,,because,,,,,how is this real
and hoseok pulls a pail from a shelf and puts it on the table in front of you and is like ‘fresh rainwater!!!!” and ur like o,,,oh and he washes the fruits before giving them to you
and he’s like “hopefully they taste sweet,,,,i got the berries only a day ago and jungkook told me they’re quite fresh!!” and ur like whose jungkook but also as you take a bite,,,you can’t help but feel ur face light up because,,,,it’s been so long since you’ve eaten something so fresh
and hoseok grins because he sees ur expression change
and he offers that you can stay for the night or he can take you back to the meadow if that makes you feel uncomfortable
but,,,,,,you tell him you’d like somewhere inside to sleep for a night and hoseok says his beds all yours
and when he stands up you notice again the tattoos on his arms,,,,,(also the fact that his tan skin and gorgeous muscles are like right there. not the point) and u ask if all keepers have tattoos
and hoseok laughs and is like “would you like to see magic??” and ur like ,,,,i feel like ive seen a lot of magic already,,,,but hit me
and bring his left fingers over his right arm he traces up the tattoo and like,,,,,,,the vines grow upwards and extended toward you,,,,wrapping around your wrist
and u,,,,,,,,,are stuck between shock and fascination
and hoseok pulls the vines back and they settle back into his skin and ur just like “,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,holy shit”
and he laughs and is like it’s not creepy??? and ur like NO omg that’s so cool
and thats how ur first night ends and in the morning u leave to go back into the village and hoseok says that if anything,,,,u can come back to the meadow and he’ll find u and try to help
and a couple of days later,,,,that’s exactly where you find yourself
because ud tried to get a job at a local cafe but someone had claimed that ud stolen food again,,,and with ur history everyone had agreed u were still a thief
and once again u found urself,,,,,alone running back to the safest place,,,,the forest
and u don’t mean to cry,,,,but it happens because it feels like no matter what u do,,,,,,you fail,,,,,,you keep failing and getting worse
and you’ll never be able to live well again
so when you get to the meadow all you do is breakdown,,,,forgetting that hoseok said if u ever came back he’d be there for you
and ,,,, he is,,,,,,,,he appears in front of you
asking in worried tone if you’re ok and you just cry,,,,,stuttering out that you’re like a wilted flower,,,,,,,you can’t do anything to make your life better,,,,,,,,,
hoseok brings his hand out,,,,,finger thumbing at your cheek and the tear stains slowly start drying
and when you look up at him hoseok smiles and brings his other hand over to touch the grass and he’s like “look,,,,this one blade is brown and crippling but,,,,”
with one swipe of his palm over it,,,,the grass slowly becomes greener,,,,straightening up
and you look in wonder and hoseok is like “everyone can make their life better,,,,with help,,,,,,,so don’t give up.”
for a second you don’t say anything,,,,but the warmth in his voice and his smile,,,,,you can’t help it
you throw yourself into his arms and hoseok teters backwards into the grass but closes his arms tightly around you
and you stay there,,,,,and hoseok doesn’t let you go,,,,,,,,
because unlike any other human he’s seen,,,,you’re hurting,,,,,but you’re not hurting over something wrong,,,,you genuinely are good and hoseok knows that he has to help you
so in the morning he asks jungkook for help who seems wary of you
but grows slightly more fond when the rabbits he looks after curiously hop over to sniff you and the deer don’t mind ur presence
and hoseok pulls you over,,,arm around your shoulder and he’s like “don’t worry,,,,this human is good!! look,,,how could such a pretty face be bad??”
and junkook is like that’s,,,,,and ur like ghodfljskd hoseok,,,,
plus being pulled into him makes u blush because,,,,shirtless,,,,what,,,
but basically jungkook agrees to help and leads you to the berry bushes deep in the woods and some other places where you can get fruits that you can bring back to the village and sell
and hoseok even manages to get taehyung to help by teaching you how to find feathers on the forest floor that you can also sell
and ,,,,somehow,,,,,hoseok convinces all the keepers that you’re special,,,,,you need their help
and a ever so reluctant seokjin even says that if anything,,,,he can give you some wolves teeth he’s collected over the years,,,,those usually make big money in villages
and everyone is being so nice and you don’t know why,,,,if it’s just because hoseok has vouched for you or something
but also when u return one afternoon,,,,running straight toward the meadow u see hoseok there,,,,holding a flower in his hands and he smiles when u greet him and u jump up and down and tell him u FINALLY made enough money to rent a small place in the village
and,,,,,,,,,u don’t know but hoseok’s smile falters
and u ask what the flower is for and hoseok gently puts it behind your ear and he says,,,,,now that you’ve done it,,,,you won’t need his help anymore-
but you just furrow ur eyebrows and ur like hoseok,,,,,don’t think that just because i have a home now that i wont came back
and hoseoks eyes slightly widen and he’s like,,,,,,,u,,,,u will??
and u laugh and ur like of COURSe,,,i love this place,,,,,,,i love all the keepers that are my friends now and most of all
hoseok doesn’t know why but it feels like the magic he usually uses to activate his vines is acitng up
but u look at him and ur like “most of all,,,i love you”
and,,,,,without even touching his arm the vines grow and wrap around you to pull you close into hoseok and ur like “oh!” but the moment of shock fades when hoseok leans his head to the side and presses his lips to yours
and the vines aren’t tight but hoseoks arms manage to pull you close and u wrap ur arms around his neck
and when you pull back you let out another gasp and hoseok is like ????
and ur like “your eyes,,,,,they’re green???”
and hoseok jolts a bit and is like “they,,,only do that when im using my magic,,,,” and ur like “is it because of the vines???”
and hoseok brings his hand over his chest and is like
“my magic comes from my heart,,,,,it cultivates my love,,,,,i don’t think it’s the vines this time, it’s you.”
Sophia isn’t a Saint. Jesse isn’t a Saint. So please, stop acting like one of them is perfect while the other is the bad guy. Breaking news, there is no bad guy; they simply didnt work out as a couple. This doesn’t give you the right to hate on one of them. We don’t know them and we surely don’t know what happened between them. And we never will. What they had was great and I’m sure none of them regret it. They lived their couple life the way they wanted, and it obviously made them happy for a while and that’s the part we should all remember.
Bottom line is that they both have flaws but are still BOTH amazing individual human beings. Hating on them or throwing shade at one of them is simply childish and ridiculous. So please be better and be happy that they are doing well and living their life the way they want with who the hell they want to. Happiness is what truly matters here.
A fan who adores them both and wish them nothing but the best. 💚
Ok I’m gonna speak on this once & once only lol people are asking me about Soph’s exit from CPD & her changing her bio.
She contractually can’t say anything to ‘confirm’ things herself, however, many sources have confirmed she is leaving the show. Whatever happened between her & producers is between them, but she still has to follow her contract.
We all know she’s not coming back, she knows that we know that. She’s allowed to change her bio & should. Her not coming straight out & saying anything isn’t her ‘dissing’ fans or ‘turning her back on Erin,’ she’s not denying a character she poured her heart & soul into for the last 4 years. It’s not like she keeps ‘Brooke Davis on One Tree Hill’ in her bio. This is/was her job. Everyone should take that into consideration. And take into consideration how hard this transition has to be for her. She gave us four years of her life. Four years away from her family & friends & dogs to give us & shape this character.
To the people attacking her & tagging her in hateful things on social media, please stop. It’s not going to change anything & if anything it’s going to distance her from the fans. People hate on her, then complain that she’s not as active on social media or as interactive with her fans. Sorry guys, can’t have your cake and eat it too. Just try to understand that she’s a person. She’s allowed to move on and do whats best for her & as her fans we should respect that.
This wasn’t requested by anyone but I saw a prompt on tumblr and I thought it would be cute to write about. So whoever posted the prompt thank you for the idea! @tvshows-obsessed all done!
Madi had been out adventuring as Clarke liked to call it, she’d left Clarke to fetch the fresh water. Madi knew Clarke didn’t mind collecting the water alone because she’d take a moment to radio her friends on the Ark. Madi knew almost everything about them now, Clarke would tell her stories every night before bed and sometimes Madi envied Clarke, she wanted to have as many adventures as her mother-figure, Clarke had been teaching her all she knew but she was eager to explore the scorched Earth. It was something she was unable to do when her parents were alive, her father would forbid her to leave her village, it was too dangerous they would say. Granted they were right, she was a night-blood and if someone had found out they would’ve dragged her to Polis.
Madi clambered up a tree to get a good view of the dead trees, the entire land except where Clarke and her had taken care of the land, was dark. It reminded her of her nightmares, a place where only demons lie but yet it intrigued her. Clarke had told her when she turned fifteen she’d take her to explore the world. So far they only been to Polis, most of the rivers and lakes near by, they’d searched for supplies that survived Priamfaya, the rover being amongst the things they found. Clarke had taught her to drive, although Clarke wasn’t exactly an expert herself. She said it was just a precaution just in case something happened to Clarke, Madi couldn’t imagine life without Clarke anymore. She’d found her and taken care of her as her own when she was fragile and still slightly sick from the radiation. Clarke had still been covered in boils herself, but she pushed herself to take care of the pair of them. Madi had found Clarke crying most nights, she didn’t open up for weeks but when she did Madi crept into Clarke’s bed to sleep beside her. It only helped her nightmares slightly but she didn’t mind them so much now.
A snap of a twig caught Madi’s attention, she almost slipped out of the tree when she saw a large metal object landing in the rotten trees, crushing them and landing softly on the ground. She’d never seen anything like it. She remembered Clarke had told her that her friends had gone up in a rocket–a metal object much like this one–but she wasn’t sure if this was what a rocket looked like.
She was quick to climb down from the tree–climbing was her strong suit. And she landed with a thud on the floor, leaves crunching beneath her feet. She hesitated on whether to go rush to get Clarke but it was far and she was worried these people would leave if she left. Madi warily took a step forward, the ship was just ahead, behind a bunch of bushes. She heard a clank and a bunch of voices they sounded slightly echoed, like something was covering their mouths like a mask.
When she stopped behind the bushes her eyes were fixed on the suited humans, there were three women and by the looks of it three men. Madi flickered back in her memories, Clarke always named six people other than her mum but she had told her her mother was in the bunker. Madi stepped out of the bushes, she had to take a risk. This was for Clarke. She’d want to know if her friends were finally home. The sound of her muffled movements made the seven spin to face the little girl fast, almost startling her but she stood her ground, hands raised when one of the boys, one quite small pointed a gun at her. She and Clarke had ones familiar to it and she knew the harm it could do. But she remained still. One of the men in the suits stepped forward, pushing the other mans gun down.
“Monty, she’s just a kid.” The deep voice scolded, Madi liked whoever it was already. But when she heard the voice she smiled, she’d found them. Clarke would be over the moon. The tallest man looked towards her, eyes meeting her, eyebrows furrowed in confusion. “How are you here? Are you from the bunker?”
Madi lowered her hands and shook her head. “I’m a night-blood. The bunkers been unreachable since Praimfaya,” Her words made most of their eyes widen, confused on how she knew about the contact with the bunker. “The air is safe, it’s been safe for a year now. Clarke’s been waiting.”
The name made the tall male perk up against, one of the woman too. The girl pulled off her helmet and stepped closer to Madi, Madi didn’t step back, from Clarke’s story these were good people.
“Clarke’s here? She’s alive?” The brunette spoke, her face filled with disbelief. The tall one had now gone silent, the others seemed to be intrigued now, all listening to her. Madi nodded.
“You’re Raven, right? Clarke’s best friend?” Madi questioned, she was trying to decipher who was who but it was hard with the glare of the mask. But seem as Raven had removed hers she could tell by the characteristics. Raven glanced down at the floor then back up at Madi, her defense shield going up as she moved angrily closer to Madi. This time Madi backed up, she knew an angry face when she saw one.
“Raven, hey! Stop!” Another voice broke out, lurching forward to grab Raven’s arm keeping the brunette away from Madi. One by one they took of their masks, within seconds Madi identified them. Bellamy had been the tallest one, the one with the tattoo over her face was Emori, Murphy had been the one holding Raven back and Monty was the small male who’d been stood closely beside a girl of medium height which she guessed could only be Harper and the final female could only be Echo.
“Where is she? Clarke?” Bellamy asked, he didn’t meet the child’s eyes but his voice was telling her he was eager to see her, to see for himself that the blonde was alive. Madi had heard about him most and she remembered Clarke’s drawings, she drew him perfectly, getting the freckles too. Madi glanced at Raven anxiously but she stood straight and smiled.
“She went out to collect water, but she’d probably be back home soon. She’s been talking to you everyday, waiting ever since she found me six years ago.” Madi gestured for Bellamy to follow her and he stepped forward but Echo spoke up her voice wary and sharp.
“What if she’s lying? This could be a trap, Bellamy and your just about to walk into it.”
“Are you lying?” Bellamy asked Madi, Madi shook her head. Bellamy nodded, giving her a gentle smile and placing a hand on Madi’s shoulder. “Then let’s go.”
The others were hesitant but they trusted Bellamy’s judgement and followed.
They reached the cave and everyone but Madi seemed exhausted, she figured they weren’t used to climbing and walking so much seem as they’d been up in space for six years. The cave was seemingly empty but the others didn’t seem to panic, they just nonchalantly sat down against the wall to take a breather. Except Bellamy, Madi could feel his anxiety radiating off of him and she gave him a reassuring smile when he glanced over at her.
“She’ll be home soon, I promise.”
Bellamy simply nodded, still holding doubt. “How did you two meet?”
Madi smiled at the question. “Praimfaya had swept over my village, it killed everyone. Except me, I guess. Clarke had came to me village looking for things that had survived and she found me instead. She’s been like my mum ever since.” Bellamy was looking at her now, a genuine smile plastered on his face.
“I didn’t know the princess had it in her,” Bellamy smiled softly, “And there are no other night-bloods?”
“No, just me and Clarke.” She answered, twiddling her hair with her fingers, eyes dropping to her lap. She almost forgot the others were there but a voice spoke up and she looked at the others.
“How old are you?” It sounded like the question had come from Harper.
“Eleven.” Madi smiled, she found it weird thinking she was only five when Clarke discovered her, she remembered being frightened, terrified and knees to chest in the corner of her fathers shop, her mother inches from her boils and blood covering her body. She blocked out the memory when she heard Clarke’s humming and she was on her feet and darted to the entrance of the cave to greet the blonde. Clarke stopped humming and smiled at Madi. She loved it when the young girl ran to greet her.
“Hello my little night-blood,” Clarke beamed, “I thought you’d still be out exploring.”
“I found something, you’ll love it.” Madi told her, wanting to surprise her. Madi quickly took the water out of Clarke’s hands using both hands seem as it was really heavy and place it to the side and snatching Clarke’s hand pulling her excitedly.
“You didn’t bring home another two-headed bunny, did you?” Clarke muttered, but when she was pulled into the flame lit cave and her eyes landed on the seven people all stood, eyes on her. She froze, Madi squeezed Clarke’s hand with a squeal.
“I found them, Clarke!” She exclaimed happily, she couldn’t tell if Clarke was going to tell her something because her mouth had fallen open, eyes scanning the room over and over again as though it was a dream. But her eyes were looking for a particular person.
“You’re really here…” A low voice rang out throughout the cave, Raven had snapped out of her shock and she stepped aside, she knew Bellamy had been waiting for this moment for six years. Clarke felt as though her feet were stuck to the floor when she saw him, his shaggy hair only a couple inches longer and slight stubble growing on his face, but he had the exact same burning brown eyes, ones perfectly matched to hers. She felt herself hold Madi’s hand tighter for support but she was careful not to hurt the child. “I thought I’d never see you again.”
Before she could do anything Bellamy was before her and his arms had wound around her middle like he’d never left, his arms returning the safe, happy feeling to her body. His familiar warmth unfreezing her and she wrapped her free arm around Bellamy’s neck whilst her hand remained in Madi’s hold. Clarke practically melted in Bellamy’s hold, tears brimming in her eyes until she could no longer fight holding them back and her hand slipped out of Madi’s so she could fully wrap her body around Bellamy until there was no space left between them.
“I was wondering if you’d ever come down,” Clarke said but it sounded like a mumble in his shoulder, choking out a laugh. Madi had stepped aside now, letting the two have some space as they reunited. The others had been watching the two, smiling at the pair. But patiently waiting for their chance to greet their old friend. Clarke pulled out of the hug, her hand cradling Bellamy’s jaw, her eyes tracing every inch of his face although she had already memorised it, her thumb brushed his own wet cheek, swiping the tears away and smiling through watery eyes at him, letting her forehead press against his head before bumping noses with him to press her lips against his. Reveling in the feeling. She’d been waiting longer than she could remember to do this, she’d promised herself if she saw him again that she wouldn’t hold back not anymore, not when they always get separated. “I love you so, so much.”
Bellamy had made a promise similar to hers and hearing her words, he planted a quick kiss on her lips once more, a grin smeared across his lips. “I love you just as much, Clarke, I can’t believe you’re alive, you’re actually here.”
“I’m really here.” Clarke let out a laugh, her hands still holding either side of his face. Madi cleared her throat, knowing the others wanted to see her too but Clarke’s eyes snapped away from Bellamy, her hands falling to her sides and cheeks running red when she realised the young girl had seen the kiss. “Sorry, um, I see you’ve already met Madi.”
Clarke ran her hand through Madi’s hair before tugging the girl gently into her side, a smile on her face as she looked down at the small brunette. Bellamy smiled, the child reminded him of Octavia when she was small, Bellamy knelt down to Madi’s height which wasn’t exactly small and held out his hand.
“Time we officially met then,” Bellamy grinned as Clarke beamed at the pair before moving to greet Raven, colliding with the girl in a bundle of laughs, they were happy to be together again, Clarke had missed all of their companies. “Bellamy Blake.”
“Madi or as Clarke likes to call me, Little Nightblood.” Madi grinned straightening her beanie before extending a hand with a friendly smile. “It’s good to finally meet you after all this time.”
“It’s good to meet you too, Madi.” Bellamy said with a light chuckle. He liked her already.

Fighting the Galra and following distress beacons rarely leaves the Paladins with free days so when they have the opportunity, they take it relaxing to the fullest. There’s Coran who checks in on the ship’s status, Allura and Shiro finally stopped beating around the bush, They were somewhere making lovey dovey faces at each other and In one of the common rooms the rest of the Paladins gathered trying to make heads and tales of a new game Lance had created. In the middle of his animated explanation something low in his stomach lurches stilling his movements. He was doing something, what was he doing? The room swims dizzily and,Why. Can’t. He . Just. Focus? Then there’s a buzzing in his ear.
“Lance, Lance!” “Huh?” he turns and the world tilts on its axis. “Lance are you ok?” He frowns was he? “I don’t- I don’t feel so well.” he stands takes a step stumbling into Keith. “Lance what the hell?” Keith catches him a hand brushing against his neck and Lance’s legs buckle. Keith looks down at the Blue Paladin he’s surprised to see him staring wide eyed at him.
“Lance?” His breath quickens as his face heats. “Alpha.” The Alpha growls possessively his hand already coming to grip his neck. Lance feels his body go limp and his head falls back as he bares his neck. The beginnings of the sweet scent of slick floats through the air. From somewhere on his left Keith hears his name and another growl rumbles in his chest. The Omega in his arms squirms lazily pawing at his clothes. “Keith!” The realization that Lance was going into heat and he was only egging it on sobered him up. “I can’t” he gasps as he lets go of Lance forgetting that his legs had turned to Jelly. Lance yelps, the rejection cutting deeper than the floor. Breathing hard he pushes off the ground. Keith already clear to the door leaves trying to forget the devastated look in Lance’s face.
Hunk places a steadying hand on Lance. “You ok?” Lance takes a moment to answer still slightly lost in the haze, and Keith’s scent clinging to his clothes aren’t helping. He was far from Ok but he wasn’t going to tell Hunk that.
He clears his throat “Yeah, I guess it’s just an off day,” he pats Hunk’s hand in thanks “I’m gonna go lie down maybe that’ll help”
The walk to his room has him insanely agitated not in the angry way but the way the leaves a bad taste in his mouth and the feeling of bugs crawling under his skin. Pair this up with the worst feeling of rejection and embarrassment you could muster and you had Lance.The action of Keith pushing him away broke something in him. They’ve been on the way to dating still butting heads occasionally,but now he doesn’t know where they stand. It’s like all their connections have been severed. If he had actually paid attention to the Garrison’s Pack Behavior course, he would have realized it was essentially due to his status in their little pack.
Prompt: “I was getting over you, why did you have to come back?” or it’s been a year since you and Steve broke up. He’s moved on, you haven’t.

A/N: this is the first fic i’ve posted on tumblr. please leave comments! let me know if you want to be tagged in the coming parts. i’m actually really into this story and seeing where it’ll go.
A Year. That’s all it had been. And your insides still ached when you heard his name, when you saw an article about him, or his face on the news. You supposed that was the problem with dating someone so high profile. The newspaper on the stand in the corner was an example of that. There he was, the front page. You silently cursed the writer. Why as it always the front page? You knew though. He was nothing short of front page material. Not with his strong jaw, his blue eyes, and his chiseled muscles…
Can you not? You don’t know what is actually happening. And blowing up her twitter won’t change anything, other than the fact that you’re so insecure about your own life you need to bother her about hers. Please let the woman live. Thanks.
I’m not kidding, out of hundreds of little papers inside a pencil case that’s what came out today. Isn’t that appropriate as fuck!?
And so I drew Jocelyne from Dumbing of Age today, I almost drew Carla again because why the fuck not? But I thought then about drawing Jocelyne out, and it was settled. I’d like to think Joyce picked out her clothes but she’d probably have a better fashion sense than me. It might be obvious by now, but I like Dumbing of Age
Now, today is the Day of Trans Visibility, and I thought of a way to, uh, “commemorate”… Well, not really. I’m just gonna stop beating around the bush about something here.
Well, this blog is run by a trans person. A girl. A girl who’s so in the closet irl she’s the goddamn queen of Narnia. So, yeah, I’m not sending any photos today, but I’m leaving this here so it’s clear for anyone who reads it
Coincidentally with all this, today sorta really sucked. So I’m ending writing this right here.
So this part picks up directly after the last part and there’s very little of the reader in this, mainly just Steve and Bucky talking about (y/n), Hope y’all like!
THANK YOU TO MY FRIEND FOR EDITING THIS, IT WAS SHIT BEFORE!
I’m such an ass, Bucky thinks as he stares at the closed door in front of him. He knows he shouldn’t have said it, but he was just so angry. Clair was originally supposed to be a little fling until (y/n) was ready to admit her feelings but now three years had passed, he was still with Clair and (y/n) decided to bury down her feelings even further. Bucky first learned of (y/n)’s feelings after a night of drinking a few years back. Because of the serum, Bucky couldn’t get drunk but (y/n) was pretty hammered. That night, he couldn’t miss the look of complete adoration that masked (y/n)’s eyes or the declaration of her love she made as she propped herself up on his shoulder.
That night as Bucky carried (y/n) to her room, he couldn’t help but smile, She actually likes me, he thought, She actually likes me!
The next morning, he waited for her to say it again, but she didn’t. Bucky waited a month before he got tired of it and found something to pass the time until (y/n) confessed. Her name was Clair, and she was nice enough, but she was no (y/n). Bucky couldn’t deny that he developed feelings for her over the years, but she could never take up the space that (y/n) held in his heart.
Bucky knew after the years of knowing (y/n) that there was no use in talking to her until she calmed down. He starts making the trek back up to the living room slowly, using the time it took to pity himself and the situation.
He hops in the elevator and waits for it to arrive, (y/n)’s room was right under the Communal living room so it didn’t take long to get there. He gets to the communal floor and slips out as the doors open. He walks down the hallway to find everyone on the living room couches. It was strangely quiet. Natasha looks up at Bucky with distaste in her eyes, as did most of the other avengers except for Steve who looks at him with pity. Bucky looks over to see the windows were open just like (y/n)’s was, they all had heard everything said.
Sam awkwardly coughs into his hand then says, “Uh, so. You and (y/n) huh?”. Everyone looks at him with the same bewildered expressions.
“What? I wanted to know and I know you all did too, I just said it.” he said, taking a sip out of the beer that was set next to the coffee table beside him.
Steve hops up off of the couch and grabs a hold of Bucky’s arm. “Come on, punk, you look like you could use a drink.”
“Every word, Buck. Loud and clear.” Steve said to Bucky. The two were currently working on their second pint of beer, discussing the events of the night at their favorite bar.
“It’s not like I meant to, I just got so angry! First I find Clair cheating on me then (y/n) wouldn’t stop beating around the bush! God, all I wanted was for her to finally say something about us but instead we got into a fight…” Bucky trails off.
“Bucky, be honest with me; do you still actually love Clair?” Steve asks.
“I don’t know, but I know that she doesn’t love me. Does (y/n) still care about me at all? It’s been 3 years, Steve. For all I know, she could have found someone else,” Bucky says glumly, putting his head in his arms.
“Bucky. Both you and I know that isn’t true. I heard just as much of that argument as you did, quit being so pig headed and think. Who’s always waiting for you after missions?” Steve questions.
“(y/n),” Bucky answers.
“Who taught you how to use your phone so you could call them after nightmares?”
“Who was the first person to befriend you when you joined the Avengers?”
“(y/n), but Steve-”
“No. Bucky, listen. She has been there for you at times where even I have failed. She loves you more than you know. You need to open your eyes and search your heart because dragging both of these girls along is not only unfair, but it’s ruining quite possibly the best relationship you’ve ever had with someone other than me,” Steve said. As much as he loves Bucky, he couldn’t stand by and watch his friend ruin his chance at true happiness.
A silence hangs in the air as Bucky processes what Steve has told him. Steve was right, of course, but was it too late? Why would (y/n) forgive him after what he’s said? He was such a jerk to her. He knew finally that him and Clair were over for good. It was better for both of them to move on instead of carrying on a dead relationship. But still, how could he win (y/n)?
“You’re right. You’re always right, but I’ve screwed up so bad, Steve. How could I possibly win her back? She probably won’t even want to see me,” Bucky groans.
“You know that isn’t true. Stop feeling sorry for yourself and think. (y/n) has always been a hot head, fast to a temper but also fast to calm down. Give her a day or two then go at it full force. Not just apologies, you have to show her that you actually can pull your head out of your own ass and be the man she knows you to be! Fight for your gal, Buck!” Steve exclaims with excitement.
Saw a gif ((which I will tag later, I am currently on mobile)) and this is what happened….
CANT YOU SEE IT ! like steve keeps trying to play flirt with tony and he shuts it down or gives negative feedback every time
Steve: Looking good today Tony ;)
Tony: I guess so
Steve: So Tony, are we ever going to stop beating around the bush and go on a date?
Tony: Maybe if you got a job that supplies an actual paycheck i would consider it..
Like actual fuck boy Steve and Tony honestly doesn’t have time for this bullshit
Steve: You never hang out with me anymore.
Tony: Yeah i know.
Steve: Well why not?
Tony: Cause your not on my list of priorities
Tony texts Steve about an Avengers meeting and later they start bickering and Steve’s all ‘well you obviously missed me since you messaged me…’
Tony just looks at him like he’s stupid and then deletes his number so when Steve texts him later he texts back
Steve: “hahah Tony, it’s me.”
Tony: still don’t know who 'me’ is…
Steve is all “your not that funny.”
and Tony sends him a screen shot with “Sorry i don’t memorize every random number that texts my phone.”
“ITS STEVE , why dont you have my number saved!?”
Tony: oh i was deleting unimportant numbers the other day ..
THIS WOULD BE PERFECT FOR A SOULMATE AU
Tony and Steve are soulmates and neither new until after Steve fucked up too many times and so Tony’s like fuck this guy im not staying with him if he only likes me because of some fate bullshit
and Steve is all trying to convince Tony that they are MADE for each other and Tony is like “huh , there must of been a defect or something.”
Steve causally puts his hand on Tony’s shoulder and Tony looks down at it like “why are you touching me?”
Steve awkwardly laughs, “Come on Tony, were soulmates.”
“……i dont see how thats related to this situation.” He moves away, “Don’t touch me.”
“Why do you keep acting like this Tony!”
“Cause i Dont like you Rogers. Case and Point.”
“What’s it going to take for you to stop this childishness!?”
“If i bother you so much, why do you keep coming back?”
“BECAUSE WE’RE SOULMATES!”
“You’re starting to sound like a broken record.”
Sam and Bucky are talking with Steve and Steve mentions the whole Tony situation.
Steve: It’s fine, he’ll come around…
Tony enters the room and snorts when he heard their conversation, “Actually, he or should i say that i have a date tonight.”
Steve: where are we going?
Tony: im not sure where you are going but im going out with a new outfit on to impress my hot date.
Sam: what are you talking about?
Tony: well today i ran into an old college classmate and he asked me to dinner, im single so i figured 'why the hell not?’
Steve: like hell your going out with someone who isnt me!
Tony: im sorry father did i not ask for your permission, was this before or after you neglected to tell me your old war body murdered you… oh thats right , silly me , you aren’t my dad your just the guy that fate thought would be a good idea to pair me up with …. guess they should have double checked theyre list twice like santa clause caused they missed Bucky Barnes by a few hundred thousand souls…..
Side note: I do NOT hate Steve, like at all. But sometimes when I think about CACW I feel like I wanna be petty.
