You heard your colleague’s voice in the background. But you didn’t react to it. You were focused on something else. Rather someone else. Your boss, that was sitting on the other end of the table, twisting and twirling a pen between his long, slender fingers. He was completely staring at you, head cocked to one side in a rather smug attitude. He was young, not much older than you. Only by a year or two. It always amazed you how successful he was for his age, but with that charm - although he most of the time radiated arrogance… and that smile, his success did not surprise you.
You’d lie if you said you weren’t attracted to him. Hell, that man could have his way with you without you even questioning it, you wouldn’t mind at all. In fact, you wanted it. You wanted him to fuck you, and by judging the look he was giving you, you understood he knew that, too. What made your chest rise and your heartbeat increase, was the fact that he tugged on the collar of his shirt. Then, he gazed up at you again, and the look he was shooting you this time made you weak. He wanted it, too.
Warning: i have been adding to this headcanon for nearly a month so it is pretty long xD OOPS SORRY NOT SORRY (i did put a cut though, so, yeah) NO REGRETS
Marinette is a youtuber
Her channel consists of mostly sped up videos of her drawing designs and making her designs. Some have voice over, some have soothing and relaxing music.
Her channel blew up
Partially because, wow, she’s really talented for only being in high school
And people just really enjoyed watching her work, it’s very unique
Sometimes she’ll do simple tutorials on how to make a simple skirt, or get started on designing, but those are more rare videos
She has a second channel that is less professional than her main, where she posts a bunch of random vlogs that her and Alya take whenever they do something interesting, or even some random challenges. Most of these videos involve Alya, since she got Marinette to make a second channel for fun vlogs
Her international followers (#subtitles) find it very interesting anytime she talks about Ladybug and Chat Noir because there are legit superheroes in Paris and no other part of the world has seen that.
They vlog all sorts of things
going to the craft store for new fabrics, buttons, patterns, literally anything Marinette needs for her next project (or they’re just bored)
They record random things they see around Paris, cosplayers of LB and CN, pigeons being weird, aesthetics
Alya and Marinette have a weekly “review” which includes Alya buying something for Marinette to review- mostly themed around her favorite heroes
Sometimes just walking around the mall. Nino is spotted in many vlogs as well, but Adrien is rarely seen since he is already around so many cameras in his normal life Marinette is respecting his privacy
A lot more below the cut because I have been working on this headcanon for nearly a month!
Translation of YOI article from the newspaper “Le Monde”
A friend asked me a translation and I saw that on the original post, there were some curious too, so I’ve made a translation of this article (I took the most important part of it precisely)
“To be honest, a show about ice skating, we didn’t think it would create such a keen interest”. Olivier Fallaix is responsible of the french Crunchyroll development. It releases outside Asia the surprising big success from this past months : Yuri on Ice, an anime of 12 episodes only, broadcasted between October and December and created by Mappa, a little and young studio. “This is internationally our second biggest success of the year, after Re-zero. Sport animes are not really an universal genre, with big success. But the strenght of YOI is that it’s not only a sport anime”.
“Fans are not mistaken”
36 years old Ninou Cyrico, is a big fan of YOI, that she watched “five-six times”. As a writer, she even published a fanfiction of 200 pages about it, taking place few years after the end of the anime.
“YOI characters are wonderful, the story is written in a clever way, with an attention to detail very fabulous”, she says and insisting on the care to develop the secondary characters. “Even the less important characters have something that makes them more than being just the background” Fans are not mistaken : with the fanfics, and the doujinshis, they even have groups who wrote stories about them.
In October indeed, the fandom web (the fan community) have seen YOI taking a considerable importance. On Tumblr, their main characters have appeared on the list of the couples the most popular of 2016. On the fanfic website Archive of Our Own, there are at least 19000 stories published since then by fans.
And the most of those creations are focused on the relationship between Yuuri and Victor. In the anime, this love story is “implicit, never explicit, treated with modesty” according to Ninou Cyrico. “It’s clever, it doesn’t harm the story, that’s not about the romance but about Yuuri’s come-back”, and an ode to surpassing ourselves. Also, “a gay romance between a Russian and a Japanese, those days, and especially on the Russian side, it’s pretty cheeky”.
« There isn’t any homophobia »
For Garance Le Gall, an other fan of YOI and writer of a memoir on LGBT representation in comics, this anime appears like “a precious stone on the calendar of the story of anime”.
“In Occident, we don’t realize how much what they did is important : a mainstream sport anime, that isn’t yaoi or even shounen ai, with a homosexual couple. It’s a bit like what George Miller did with [Mad Max : Fury Road]. They introduced it like a big testosterone movie, but the audience went to watch a feminist movie instead”
Summary: You and Yoongi shared a loving relationship with one another until you both agreed to end things and pursue your separate careers. But two years later, Yoongi is a member of the ever growing Bangtan Boys, and you are a new makeup artist for their upcoming tour. Pairing: Yoongi | Reader Genre: Fluff/Angst/Smut; Idol & Makeup Artist AU Word Count: 5,848
Min Yoongi knew he was royally fucked as soon as he stepped through the doorframe into the dance studio—a time that seems so long ago, while in reality it’s barely been more than a week since the unthinkable happened.
The unthinkable, taking the form of hair he’s run his fingers through, a jacket he’s peeled off, skin he’s nipped at, shoes that led to daily departures, eyes that filled with tears, a heart that he’s broken, words that crushed his own.
It had been 2 years since he had last seen you or heard from you, and yet he responded so intensely to the mere sight of your backside that some people would have thought it had only been 2 weeks since you last saw each other. Or maybe even 2 hours, especially taking into consideration the way his heart lurched, the memories bubbling up so quickly across his consciousness as if they never truly had time to settle below the surface.
Just like the very first time he ever saw you during his street performances, the first time he talked to you to ask you out for coffee, the first date, the first kiss, the first time—they’ve all been moments in his life that made him feel like his heart had been set aflame, knocked him off his guard. Yet, they’ve all been moments in his life that consistently remained special and important to him, times that contradicted his initial belief that his existence would never matter to anyone. It was the first time someone had ever looked at him as if he had created the world and all its beauty within the confines of his own two hands. You made the time he wasn’t an idol, the time he spent longing and daydreaming and yearning for a better future, significant. You made his life mean something.
Until he abandoned you, so desperate to create a name for himself that he thought that belief would be enough to drive you out of his mind and therefore out of his life.
Yoongi has always loved you just as much as he loved his career—if not more.
And now you were back in his life, your physical presence haunting him even as you stood mere inches away from him, telling Bang Si-Hyuk that he didn’t need to worry about any sort of implication or possibility happening between the two of you, that the two of you were no longer under an qualms of being serious, that you had made the best of the life he left you behind with.
Thanks to a friend inviting me to their DnD group, I get to Skype-roleplay a chaotic good half-elf sorcerer with a slight drinking problem and a propensity to hit on everyone. Here’s a few things that have happened so far:
Me, hungover and meeting the Tiefling monk in my party: “Well that has to be the second horniest guy I’ve seen this week.” Him: “…okay that’s a reaction I haven’t gotten before.”
Me, out of character: “Now this vampire lord, would you describe him as attractive? On a scale of like, ‘Interview with a Vampire’ hot?” DM: “Hmm….Not Brad Pitt hot but around Tom Cruise hot.” Me, In-Character: “Oh crap, he’s hot.”
Me, drinking from a flask: “Fuck you I am refined as fuck.”
Me: “I say, ‘Allow me, Sir’ and cast Mending on the guard’s broken helmet. DM: “The guard can lift his visor easily now and says, ‘Wow, thanks! That sure is handy. You could give my wife a run for her money!’” Me: “Hun, you have no idea.” Party: *groans*
Me: “I cast levitate on the dire wolf.” *rolls* DM: “The dire wolf, having failed his saving throw, wiggles his paws impotently in the air as he floats up to the ceiling, unable to attack anyone.” Me: “Hang there for bit, pup, I’ll get back to you.” Party:*groans*
DM: “The vampire lord chuckles haughtily and glides backwards, vanishing into the darkness.” Me: “I cast middle finger at the darkness.”
Tiefling monk, regaining conscious: “What did I miss?” Me, pointing to the ceiling: “We have a pet wolf now.”
Me, sitting in front of a burning house full of screaming vampires, drinking from a flask: “You guys said we were going to a winery.”
Multistreaming was a huge success! I was pleasantly surprised by my youtube audience! This doodle is a bit messy and I’m not too proud of it but here it is. It was gonna be serious and sad but I just gotta keep the fluff levels up.
Culture Shock: Everything You Need To Know About The Beatles
From humble Liverpool beginnings to becoming the most iconic band of all time, the Fab Four has had a long and storied history. Here’s a primer on The Beatles, so you can sound like a bona fide expert if this paradigm-shifting band ever comes up in conversation.
There were originally seven members of The Beatles, but three of them got lost on their way to the Ed Sullivan stage and missed out on the opportunity of a lifetime: Unfortunately, for Craig, Wesley, and Chip, it just wasn’t meant to be. By the time the three bandmates navigated their way back from the bathroom to the Ed Sullivan stage, John, Paul, George, and Ringo were already halfway through “I Want To Hold Your Hand,” and The Beatles craze in America was well underway. The four members who took the stage decided it would have been far too much work to get the country accustomed to three more members moving forward, so they ended up just cutting them loose.
The Beatles were the first band to ever score a major endorsement deal, culminating in an ad where Ringo is held down in a tub of Coca-Cola for 90 seconds: While musicians commercializing their success is nothing surprising in today’s world, The Beatles were considered trailblazers when they teamed up with Coca-Cola to make a commercial where Ringo nearly drowns in a tub of their famous soda. Both Coke sales and Beatles album sales soared after the commercial aired, and it’s a formula that’s been repeated countless times since.
Every one of The Beatles’ 12 studio albums includes at least one song about trying to steal Elvis Presley’s wife: This is one that you’ll miss if you’re not paying attention. On every one of The Beatles’ albums, they were always sure to include a few songs about stealing the wife of their enemy, Elvis Presley. Whether it was with “Eleanor Rigby,” “Dear Prudence,” or the early “Please Please Me,” The Beatles did everything in their power to lure Elvis’ wife away from him, all to no avail. But at least it made for some grade-A tunes.
The Beatles were the first band to make a music video, which comprises almost entirely of footage of John Lennon screaming at George Harrison for messing with the thermostat: While music videos have become a necessary part of the music business, it wasn’t always that way. The Beatles certainly turned a few heads when they introduced the first-ever music video, which was just raw footage of the notoriously temperamental John Lennon really laying into George Harrison for changing the temperature in the studio while “Fool On The Hill” plays. Lip-reading superfans have been able to glean John shouting, “Just pick something and stick to it!” and “You are this close to losing thermostat privileges!” but some of Lennon’s more effusive reprimands remain a garbled mystery. The artistic gamble paid off big time, as The Beatles are now credited with changing the music game forever.
The Beatles spent so much time in India because no pilot could deal with their constant singing on the flight back to London, so they kept turning around to drop them back off: The Beatles famously spent long stretches of time meditating in India, and it was largely because no pilot had the patience to fly them all the way back to England as they relentlessly sang and yelped. By the time the plane got to the proper elevation, pilots were already so irritated with the incessant crooning coming from the back of the plane that they’d turn right around and drop The Beatles back off. If it weren’t for these annoyed pilots, The Beatles never would have spent their transformative songwriting month in India, and the world would never have the hits “Blackbird” or “Revolution.”

grabbed one of his black turtlenecks.

had already been two long years since he dropped you off at that station. The
last time either of you saw each other– in person at least. You both still
made time to webcam, text, and call each other whenever possible. But it was
difficult to romance through the screen and the need to hold you and kiss you
was becoming more and more unbearable for him each day.
promised, you had graduated with the highest honors in your university, even
winning the spot of commencement speaker and making it to the news with your
eloquent and inspiring speech. The nation was astounded by the woman who came
from a humble background and ended up rising to the status of CEO, cultivating
one of the strongest branches in a world-renowned company. To Yoongi’s dismay,
you received a nomination to be a Director of the Board and became one of the
candidates for Chair along with him and one other.
while you accomplished a lot already, you still hadn’t been able to see each
other. The Chairman forbid both of you from attending meetings in person at the
same time, so more or less, one of you would be on webcam during conferences. There
were no traces or connections between you two, other than the fact that you
both had once worked together as boss and secretary. As the Chairman wanted,
you kept your relationship the utmost secret from the world, until you two were
able to stand on your own.
Yoongi had fulfilled his duty just as excellently as you did. Although he woke
up late almost every day, he still made it to work on time. And even without
you and Jimin, he continued to advance the Daegu branch without troubles,
winning many mergers and partnerships with large companies. He even expanded
his own franchise outside of the company, wanting to test his own skills
without the help of his family name and not being restricted to just what was
good for the company. It was a business run by himself, for himself. The Board
of Directors took notice of his progression and seriousness, keeping a close
eye on him for the past two years, since he was, in fact, the rightful heir to

acknowledge the people bowing deeply as he passed. He really hated how
unnecessary all of these rules were that his grandfather was still instating. You
both had kept your end of the promise already. Why couldn’t you see each other
grumbled as he fixed his suit in front of the conference room. After checking
that he had all his notes and files in hand, he took a deep breath and pushed
the door open. He was ready to do this. But what he saw as soon as he walked
in, he was not prepared for, and it froze him in his spot almost immediately.
grinned as everyone stood up respectfully when Yoongi arrived. Your eyes locked
with each other upon entrance and you saw him freeze in shock. You tried to
fight back your laughter at your successful surprise. You subtly gestured for
him to take his seat at the head of the table and he coughed to compose
Have a seat.“ he stated amiably, but he couldn’t stop beaming brightly.

to stare at Namjoon.

room. You and Namjoon glanced at each other amused then both turned your
attention towards Yoongi.

avoid his lingering eyes.
do it, Mr. Min!” Jimin cheered, earning a scolding nudge from Hoseok.
meeting progressed smoothly. You were extremely impressed by how Yoongi handled
it. He passed out outlines for everyone at the beginning in order to direct the
flow of conversation and to make sure every important topic was discussed
thoroughly. You couldn’t help but smile proudly as you watched him leading the
conference confidently and knowledgeably, like a true CEO.

reached over and pinched Jimin’s cheeks harshly. "And you’re still
annoying, Park Jimin.”
snorted as he continued writing down notes.

two sat up straight, embarrassed at being caught.

smirked. “Why yes, Mr. Min. I have a few things I want to bring up to the
we go.“ Jimin muttered and you kicked him under the table as you took out
your own handouts and charts to show off.
the meeting ended, the CEOs mingled around for a few minutes before making
their way to the complimentary luncheon. Some people approached Yoongi and
Namjoon to speak to them directly and introduce themselves to the possible
Chairs of the company.
though you’re nominated, people don’t believe you’ll take the Chairwoman
position.” Jimin shrugged as he sat on the table nonchalantly. “You
should just take it and get a big laugh at everyone’s face.”
chuckled. “I’d rather not just sit on my butt all day and not do

changed the subject.
shook his head. "Yes, very busy.”
no.“ You rolled your eyes. "I’m afraid to ask what he was busy
with…or with who more so.”
Jimin huffed. "It’s not bad! Well it was bad at first, but I’ll have you
know that I’m finally in a stable relationship.”
gawked at him. “Are you serious?”
glanced at Hoseok for confirmation.

you had feelings for??“ You gushed.
That’s exactly the one.” Hoseok shook his head.

rubbed the back of his neck sheepishly. “It’s a pretty long story.”
no matter. The result is what’s important. I can’t believe you’re taken.“
You clapped. "We all have to get together one day with our significant
others. We’ll come to you guys in Seoul for the next meeting!”

congrats to you too, Hoseok. I heard from the grapevine about you and Silver

“I’m so happy for you two.”

rolled your eyes and let go of their hands. The other two chuckled.
this the thanks I get for helping you out, Jimin?”
laughed, “She grabbed me, Mr. Min. I’m innocent. I would never betray you,
but this one is trouble. You have to keep an eye on her.”

of meetings. What about you?! I had no idea you worked here too! When I saw
your speech on the news, I was stunned. Then I knew our paths would cross soon

looked at the two of you with apparent disgust.
shall we go to the complimentary lunch?” Namjoon gestured.
You smiled as you followed him to the door, enjoying taunting Yoongi.
Yoongi called dangerously.
glanced between the two of you and the situation seemed to dawn on him.
“Ahh, I’ll go on ahead then.”
chuckled gratefully and he winked at you before shutting the door behind him.

his lips against yours hungrily.

with his hair gently.

snorted. "Why is Namjoon your arch nemesis? Cause of the Chairman

chuckled and shook your head. "As I said, I’m sure it’s a one-sided

it sounds like you’re good friends then.”

chuckled and rolled your eyes at his ultimatum. “I’m pretty sure this is
abusing your power.”
abusing my love for you.“ he pouted cutely. "I just want you to be
where I can see you, where I can be with you.”
laughed as you squeezed his cheeks. “I was going to accept it anyway. I
just need to act like I was in contemplation. I still have pride in my branch,
you know. It’s like my child.”
grinned then scrunched his face.
I’ll wait then.“
pecked his lips lightly. "Thank you.”
are you staying tonight?“ he questioned.
I was hoping I still had a room at a certain apartment complex.” You
chuckled. “I was hoping you’d say that.”
that day, you found yourself curled up in Yoongi’s couch once again. He lay on
your lap, relaxing while you carded your fingers through his hair.

"Ah! Gosh! Okay!
It’s not a dream. Sheesh. I need all my hair for goodness sake!”
you should stop dye-ing it so often, hm?“ You hummed. "It looks like
you infected Jimin with your habit.”
grinned. “He’s the one that asked me to dye it with him.”
right, what happened between you two? You helped him out or something?“
at first, I asked him for a favor for a week or two, since the influx of work
increased in the Daegu branch. But then, he ended up begging me to have him stay

thing at night, but…
I’m worried about my family. My little sisters, Tae, Jin.“
chuckled lightly. "I told you not to worry about them, didn’t I? I took
care of them while you were away.”
furrowed your brows angrily. “Speaking of which, none of them will tell me
what they’ve been up to! I know you helped my sister cover the rest of her
university tuition because I bribed it out of her! And I heard Jin disappeared

no idea what he’s doing or where?”
lips curled up.
“Hyung?” Tae called as he found
Yoongi sitting on the couch in the middle of the night, the place where you
used to sleep.
Yoongi smiled sadly.
"You miss her, huh?“ Tae
smiled as he sat beside him.
"Yeah, a lot.”
"It’s okay, hyung. This is her
dream. It’s no one’s fault.“ Tae squeezed Yoongi’s hand."She decided
Yoongi glanced at the younger,
“You know, you matured a bit.”
Tae grinned. “When I think of
how hard Y/N has been working for us and for herself, it makes me wonder if
I’ll ever get close to my dream like she has.”
Yoongi stared at Tae, “Do you
still want to go to Seoul, Tae?”
Tae smiled and nodded. “Very
"Good.“ Yoongi’s grin
widened. "Because there’s an opening for a part-time job at one of the top
vet hospitals there, and I’ve already put in a good word for you since I have a
connection in there. And they’d like you to come in for an interview
Tae gasped, his eyes widening.
Yoongi laughed and nodded.
"Oh my gosh, hyung!“ Tae
flung his arms around Yoongi excitedly. "Seriously? I have a chance to be
a vet in Seoul??”
"I wrote you a stunning
recommendation letter and asked your boss at your current hospital to do so
too. It’s all up to you now.“
Tae’s eyes watered happily.
"Thank you, hyung. I don’t how to thank you.”
"While you’re there, would you
like to make some cash on the side?“ Yoongi’s lips curled up.
"Huh?” Tae blinked.
"I want to hire you to keep an
eye on the new business I’m starting up in Seoul.“
Yoongi nodded. “I trust you. Plus
I think you’ll like the place. It won’t be a boring job. You’ll get to meet all
sorts of people, and there’ll be music and performances every day. What do you

every morning. But today, instead of boring articles about stock markets, and
businesses crashing, pictures of you and Yoongi were scattered throughout every
news site and all over his social media. The headline read “BREAKING NEWS:
DAEGU ROYALTY, MIN YOONGI, DATING DAEGU’S VERY OWN CINDERELLA, Y/N!”. He
chuckled as he scanned through the pictures of you two boldly holding hands on
the street, openly dating, beaming at each other. He plugged one earphone in
and played the news video.
“Women all over the world are gushing
over the news. Folks, it is real! This has never happened before in the history
of the nation. No longer is it just a fairytale, but it’s become reality.
Someone from humble birth – a farm girl from the Daegu countryside to be
exact– has in fact, snatched herself a man of wealth and status. And it isn’t
just recently either, the couple has in fact been together for almost three
years! Talk about a BIG surprise!
While there are mixed opinions about
this unprecedented relationship, there isn’t much to be said about why these
two can’t be together. She certainly has proven herself to be worthy of such a
status and has shown the world that no matter where you come from, you can be
whoever you want to be through hard work. Alternatively, CEO Min Yoongi has
stated that he has never intended to date or marry for wealth, but for
happiness and love.” The reporter spoke.

“When we asked the Chairman, CEO Min’s grandfather, about his opinion on the
matter, he also expressed his support and approval for this relationship. Many
of the wealthy are absolutely shaken up, but for all of us normal folks, it is
a sliver of hope to break down the economic barriers. The couple has accepted
many exclusive interviews and has stated that all of their broadcasting fees
will be donated to an organization. What an inspiration! We’ll be keeping
everyone updated on this truly modern day fairytale so stay tuned.”

I know her!“ Jimin’s girlfriend appeared behind the counter, peeking at

nodded, his eyes twinkling with unspoken happiness.
giggled and held your left hand up next to his, showing off your matching rings.
I GOT THREE OF THESE ALREADY. Oh my original love, so glad people are still here for it.
Who said “I love you” first?
Shiro. Matt mostly doesn’t say it outright still, because he’s a little shit. He’d much rather call Shiro ‘Starshine’ and doodle on his natural arm and leave him sticky notes telling him his butt looks good in his armor. Same thing, right? Totally.
(He does say it, but it’s in the quiet of the night, when the lights are off and everything feels muffled and slightly unreal. Then Matt can say it without fear. The rest of the time he makes do)
Who would have the other’s picture as their phone background?
Matt. They are all terrible pictures, and he will NOT let Shiro at his phone, because he would delete them. It’s damn hard to get a properly ugly picture of Shiro, and but Matt’s perfected the art.
Currently, it’s a picture of him first thing in the morning. He’d been telling Matt to stop chattering before he was awake enough to respond, and he started to sneeze right as Matt took the picture. It’s his pride and joy.
Who leaves notes written in fog on the bathroom mirror?
Shiro. It’s only on occasion, and it’s a toss-up if it’s something sweet or something ridiculous. One time it wasn’t intentional: a thought had occurred to him about a calculation he’d been doing for flying one of the little escape jets on board. In an effort to get it out of his head, Shiro started to write the equations out on the mirror. About two thirds of the way through, he stopped to go get a pad and pen since it was starting to face, and found Matt finishing it up in his absence.
Who buys the other cheesy gifts?
Matt. He’ll get anything he thinks will make Shiro pause. Now Shiro has a bunch of novelty items and kitsch memorabilia. This goes double if the item in question is ugly. There’s a lot of cross-eyed figurines in awful outfits. Shiro keeps them, but they’re all turned to face the wall instead of his bed. It’s a problem to wake up to their stares.
Who initiated the first kiss?
Shiro. Matt wouldn’t stop talking to let him get a word in edgewise, and was working himself into a lather about no, he knows Shiro doesn’t feel the same, he’s not going to make it weird, it’s been the whole times so- wait, no it hasn’t, shut up, forget I said that, it’s fine, it’s just a crush-
So Shiro kissed him on the nose to startle him. Then he asked if he could kiss him for real, because he’d wanted to do that for a long time now.
Who kisses the other awake in the morning?
Shiro. Matt would, except he never, ever wakes up before Shiro. Because he doesn’t wake up at 6 in the goddamn morning like certain assholes.
Who starts tickle fights?
Matt. To be fair, Shiro is asking for it when he’s being all reserved and stoic and acting like he’s above human needs like wanting to fool around and relaxing. So Matt tickles him until Shiro’s smiling too hard to keep up the Black Paladin Seriousness and then kisses him until he agrees to take a break.
Who asks who if they can join the other in the shower?
Matt. He has a very effective seduction technique that involves nearly slipping and falling on his face, holding onto Shiro and then trying to play it off as smooth. It always earns him a laugh and kisses, and usually something after, so he’s going to count it as a successful seduction.
Who surprises the other in the middle of the day at work with lunch?
They eat together with everyone else, but Shiro brings Matt meals when he forgets them, and they eat together. This happens less these days, but he’ll sitll occasionally lose track of time and haze out for a bit, and Shiro will stay with him until he’s fully back to himself.
Who was nervous and shy about the first date?
Matt didn’t act like it, but he was. By this point, Shiro was pretty calm about the whole thing. They’d basically been dating for months already, so what was the difference except titles?
Who kills/takes out the spiders?
Shiro. Matt would climb the walls to get away from a spider. It doesn’t help.
Who loudly proclaims their love when they’re drunk?
Shiro. Mind, he’s the one who would loudly proclaim their love anyway, but a drunken Shiro is one that clings to Matt’s side and starts telling him how gorgeous and adorable and smart he is, and then gets distracted with a very empirical study on the effects of kissing on Matt’s neck.
This would not be that strange, except he did it in front of Sam, who hasn’t let them live it down.
how would fukuzawa, yosano, dazai, atsushi, chuuya, akutagawa, and koyou react if they are suddenly 'attacked' by their s/o, who jumps at them and starts peppering them with kisses?
Never in a million years can you sneak up on Fukuzawa, no matter how hard you try. From the moment he comes within fifteen feet of you, he’ll notice you tucked away in your hiding spot, waiting for him. He’s puzzled, and doesn’t quite know if he should call you out or not, so he simply stares at you quizzically until you decide to strike.
When you spring at him, Fukuzawa’s even more confused. A single eyebrow rises as you mount your attack, and he watches you, unsure if he should even as what you’re up to. When you reach him, though, and begin assaulting him with kisses he immediately catches on to your purpose. A satisfied smile stretches across his face as you speckle his skin, lips trailing every inch of his face. After a few moments he lets out a laugh.
Without warning, Fukuzawa suddenly flips the tables and sweeps you up into his arms, squishing you in a gigantic, tight hug. He chuckles as you squirm in his grip, but holds firm. Fukuzawa plants a few kisses of his own across your cheeks before setting you down, satisfied. He would never say something so dreadfully cliche out loud, but he’s thankful that he managed to find someone as energetic as you. You spirit helps him feel as though he doesn’t have quite so many years hanging heavy on his shoulders (he may not be all that old yet, but some days, he definitely feels like it).
After you’re safely on the ground again, Fukuzawa captures your chin between his thumb and forefinger and tugs you into a deep kiss. Slowly, he massages your lips with his own, pulling you into pure bliss with his teeth and tongue. Where kissing’s involved, Fukuzawa’s hard to beat, and it’s going to take a lot more than a simple surprise attack to one-up him.
If there’s anyone that gets wrapped up in their work, it’s Yosano Akiko. Sneaking up on her is no big task, especially if she’s engrossed in paperwork, or perhaps a novel she’s been reading lately. All you need to do is lie in wait until she’s focused on something, and you’re practically guaranteed a successful surprise attack.
After you’ve pounced on her, Yosano simply laughs, setting aside whatever was occupying her to fully concentrate on you. Once you’ve pulled her away from something, there’s no escaping her notice; she’s 100%, completely focused on you now. You can’t slip away from Yosano even if you want to.
Yosano wraps her arms around you, looping them underneath yours so that your hands still have free range as she holds you. She plants one chaste peck on your lips before pulling back in a silent command to proceed. Yosano remains in your grips, basking in the affection you’re showering her with. No kisses will ever be enough to satiate her voracious appetite for your love, but as long as your lips keep ghosting across her skin, she’s temporarily satisfied. Giggles bubble out of her chest as she threads her hands through your hair, tugging you closer to her skin if she thinks you’re not keeping a fast enough fast.
When you’re through, pulling back in an attempt to halt the kiss attack, Yosano immediate grabs for you, tugging your face to be about a breath from hers. “I didn’t say you could stop,” she points out, voice somewhere between a purr and a whine. Be prepared to be showering Yosano with kissses for hours, if you ambush her; she won’t let you go free until she’s satisfied, and that may take a long time.
If you think you can surprise Dazai, you’ve got another thing coming. From the moment the idea entered your head to attack the man, he’s had an inkling that a plot’s spinning around in your head. While Dazai’s curiosity prods him to confront you, he also wants the surprise to be genuine. Thus, even though he expects some kind of trick from you, Dazai still lets your sneaking around carry on uninterrupted.
Dazai’s nothing if not an actor; even though he knew something was up, he acts completely surprised when you pounce on him. Flailing wildly, Dazai yelps, pretending like he’s stuck in a life-or-death battle. “Kunikida, Atsushi, someone!” He cries out, grin spread wide across his face as he lets you blanket his skin in kisses. “Help me! I’ve been trapped by a wily vixen!” Dazai falls to the ground, laughter bubbling out as you sprinkle kisses all over his cheeks.
“I won’t go down without a fight!” Dazai proclaims. Suddenly, his fingers dive into your sides, tickling furiously. It’s not the first time he’s used such dirty tactics, and it probably won’t be the last! Dazai tickles you mercilessly until you’re both rolling on the floor, tears leaking out from all the laughter.
Whether you win this battle or not all depends on if you keep kissing Dazai. If you dodge his wiggling fingers enough to keep peppering his face, or if you start tickling him back, he’ll cave within five minutes. “I’ve been vanquished…” Dazai laments, sitting up to plant a kiss of his own on your nose. “I’m truly no match for you, my darling __________.”
If Atsushi’s wrapped in what he’s doing, slipping into your hiding place and springing out on him is nearly effortless. He’s completely oblivious to your presence until your arms suddenly twist around him, mischief in your eyes and a grin spread across your face. He’s nearly thrown off balance and almost topples to the ground, but Atsushi doesn’t care. He’s already smiling (albeit a bit nervously) before you even plant your lips on him.
The moment you start spreading kisses here-there-and-everywhere all over Atsushi’s face, a crayon-pink blush explodes across his cheeks under your lips. He explodes into a fit of adorable giggles, throwing his arms out before wrapping them around you in a tight hug. Atsushi squirms under the volley of smooches; he’s ridiculously ticklish, and the fact that you’re simply not letting up isn’t helping anything!
As long as nobody else is watching you, Atsushi inevitably catches your kissing bug and soon returns a few pecks of his own. His arms playfully tighten around you so that you’re trapped, and then he starts lightly peppering kisses along your cheekbones in between the little smooches from you. Soon a competition’s raging between you; who can kiss the other the most without being interrupted by a kiss?
If anyone else is around, Atsushi soon grows too embarrassed by your little shower of affection and buries his face in your neck, laughing. He giggles out a breathless “Stop! Truce, truce, I submit!”. Honestly, though, Atsushi doesn’t really want you to knock it off. He’s perfectly content if you ignore his pleas, and go on splattering kisses across his skin.
Catching Chuuya unawares is a truly difficult task, but if you’re truly commited, you can sneak up on him if he’s on the middle of some important paperwork or something of that nature. He sees you coming before you reach him, naturally, but he stays still, letting you pounce on him without a fuss, even if he’s a bit confused.
As soon as your lips start hitting his skin in light little kisses, Chuuya’s face breaks out in a grin as his arms wrap around you. You’re just so cute, he can’t handle it! A laugh rumbles out of Chuuya’s chest as he stands still for a few beats, just appreciating this sudden burst of affection.
Chuuya, though, is never one to be outdone, even by you. He doesn’t let you smother his skin for long before his arms shift and he’s suddenly sweeping you off your feet, his strong arms capturing you so that you can’t resist. As soon as you’re pinned in his grasp, comfortably encircled in his arms, Chuuya turns the tables.
Chuuya peppers you with kisses instead, a grin plastered against his face as his lips travel all over your skin, attacking here and there until you’re a blushing, giggling mess. He does relish affection, to be sure; but with things like this, why receive when you can give? Chuuya loves to get your face flushed and laughter bubbling from your chest, and he’ll do anything to make you smile.
For how guarded Akutagawa is, pouncing on him from the shadows in a sneak attack is surprisingly easy. Dealing with him afterward is the tricky part. When your arms clasp around him, intending to pull him into sweet little kisses, he immediately tenses. Akutagawa’s attack mode flips on instantly, and it’s a good thing you’re planting your lips on the back of his neck, because otherwise Rashomon might’ve skewered you. The only thing that saves you from a self-defending smack is the fact that Akutagawa recognizes you’re the only person that would dare kiss him.
Sighing, Akutagawa turns to face you, the tiniest of carnation pink blushes blooming across his face as you lean to splatter kisses across his cheeks. After you’ve thoroughly covered his face, he sends you a glare (there’s no real heat in it, of course; Akutagawa’s just upset that you could’ve been hurt by catching him off guard). “You know I don’t appreciate surprises,” he grumps, though he doesn’t push you away. He immediately panics when he notices your face fall, obviously hurt by his words. “I suppose, though, this one’s fine…” Akutagawa trails off before deciding he can’t just leave you crestfallen and without kisses.
Tipping your face to his, Akutagawa sweeps his lips over yours, settling once you’re firmly comfortable in his arms. He lavishes affection across your mouth, teeth and tongue slowly working against yours as you melt into his grip. Akutagawa cuts it off when you’re both out of breath and have entirely forgotten his less-than-thrilling reaction to your surprise kiss attack. “Next time,” he requests, planting a tiny kiss on your nose for good measure, “warn me, and I promise I’ll enjoy every kiss you give.” With that, Akutagawa’s back to his business like nothing ever happened.
Nobody sneaks up on Kouyou; no matter how hard you try, you’ll never be able to spring a surprise attack on this woman. From the moment you get positioned, Kouyou’s entirely aware where you are. She knows you’re up to something, even if she’s not sure what. Kouyou won’t call you out; your antics intruige her too much for her to ask you just what you’re up to. She simply waits, side-eyeing you, until you make your move.
“My, you’re excitable today,” Kouyou chuckles as you spring your attack, peppering kisses up and down her skin. Usually, she’s not one for bubbly displays of affection, but when you’re wound up, she can’t help but catch a bit of your vivacity.
Kouyou lets you smother her in light kisses for awhile, leaning into you. Gently wrapping her arms around your waist, she simply basks in your presence, a tiny smile flirting with the edges of her lips.
Eventually, Kouyou grows restless with your sweet display. Catching your chin between her thumb and forefinger, she halts you mid-kiss. “Now, my dear, you know you shouldn’t be so teasing for such a long time,” she purrs, tugging you flush against her. Pulling your face to hers, Kouyou plants her soft lips gently against yours, slowing shifting against your skin. Slowly but surely, she takes control of the kiss, letting her tongue slip out to taunt your mouth. Kouyou doesn’t mind sweetness, and she’ll accept any affection from you; just don’t be surprised when she pulls you down into something deeper, shifting the mood from lighthearted to sensual in a few expert moves.
Most of these are taken from my Wattpad account! (Twtrash01)
Send me requests for the following Fandoms: Teenwolf, Vampire Diaries, Dolantwins, OUAT(Peter Pan, Robbie Kay, Supernatural, Suicide Squad, The 100. Basically I’ll write for any fandom. I’ll write non-smut as well. Be specific in what you want!
Can you write something where the girl is in Scotts pack and then theo comes along like at the start of s5 and the pack is always way to overprotective of her because she’s human so she’s kinda angry and disappointed with them. She needs someone to vent to and sees theo in the library. They see each other a lot after that and theo kinda changes her mind about the pack and tries to take the pack down with her? If that even makes any sense for you.
MCU CANONSSECTION: Why Steve is the Shield he wields
(Canonssection is where I take canon, open it, tear it into pieces, see all the gears and fine tuning then try to put some part together as to explain a part of the overall narrative great picture and why that part in particular is not only necessary and revealing but relevant)
During TFA, Steve, after having been given the command of a small task force, is taken apart by Howard Stark in order for him to choose a weapon with which to conduct his mission. On the table lots of experimental arm but the one that caught Steve’s eye is a shield. Not any shield either but a vibranium one, which absorb all force exerted upon it and nullify it and is as such a literal unmovable object.
This choice is interesting because this is not what one would think of at first when talking about weapon. Indeed a shield is primarily a defensive object and while Steve mastered the art of throwing it at improbable trajectories and make it magically come back, it doesn’t change the fact that it is still a clumsy weapon at best and bullets would be more efficient.
This choice is usually analyzed as the pinnacle of Steve’s character and I do agree with this conclusion but not for the reasons most would think of. This shield is always used to reflect Steve’s primary instinct to protect and never instigate, he will defend those that need it when needed. In my opinion only the “when needed” portion of this is relevant when discussing Steve’s (in the MCU at least) personality. In truth, this shield is the ultimate proof that once set in a way Steve is rigid and unyielding, he will go at something with bull-headed doggedness but on the flip side of this if he is unsure of what course of action to take Steve won’t move of his own volition and instead wait for external circumstances to make the choice for him.
Indeed, Steve Rogers is first introduced to us as someone that has one idea and won’t budge from it, he want to enlist and fight on the frontlines. Nevermind all the refusal he got nor his own physical limitations nothing, not even his best friend will make back off from his goal. He gets his chance and the super soldier serum but that’s where things go sideways. He is the only trace left of Erskine’s formula and the only guy in his corner is dead so he can’t go and fight in the war anymore. Faced with the prospect of spending the rest of his days as a lab rat he tries to find another solution and someone gives him one: being a propaganda tool. He accepts.
Even as he seems not to like this that much (at least by the time he gets to the frontlines) he follows without complaints because now that he is a soldier he doesn’t know what to do next and takes the first option he is provided with.
Then comes the decisive moment of Bucky’s capture that once again spurrs him into action by giving him a purpose AND a personal motivation to achieve his goal. He goes into enemy territory gun blazing without a plan out of sheer stubbornness to refuse to believe Bucky’s dead until every stone stands unturned. The mission is a surprising success and he gets a team and missions as a reward. Once again with his personal motivation gone of the equation he is content to just follow orders and take part of the war effort his way. Then Bucky dies before his eyes and once again Steve resolves to personally destroy the Red Skull and Hydra and nothing will deter him from that.
That’s why even after having won the battle and proceeding to sink the war plane into the ice he refuses to consider any option that could save his life (such as jumping a hundred mile above the sea, which he WOULD survive) because he needs to be sure without any shred of doubt that his mission has been carried to completion, even if it costs him his life.
Thus the origin story of Steve Rogers proved to us how zero to 100 he is as a person like his shield when used unstoppable but the rest of the time purely reactive. The next movies he appears in only underlines this concept.
Indeed in the Avengers he is first seen as someone who’s lost all purpose in life and is content with living in the limbo in between the life he used to have and the time he woke up to. When Fury comes to recruit him even if he is bone-tired and weary he takes little convincing to join up as he is once agin given a purpose and this is better than brooding over all that he has lost. During the whole first half of the movie he is a model soldier following orders and respecting Fury’s authority.
He only takes initiative after Tony’s needling, allowing him to find the phase two weapons. When the Helicarrier is under attack he follows Tony’s lead and orders through everything and post himself as a guard. Once again Tony is the one that unfold Loki’s plan and moves ahead leaving Steve to go and fetch Widow and Hawkeye. Once they arrive and are all assembled for the first time Steve doesn’t take the initiative, at that pointhe knows Tony’s was right about Fury, about Banner coming and about Loki’s plan. Only at Tony’s prompting (“Call it, Cap) does he take the lead and starts giving out orders.
Once his leadership is established we find back the Captain, the one giving orders, stubbornly fighting to the bitter end and making the hard choices (closing the portal on Tony).
The Winter Soldier also shows this pattern of Steve’s behavior. Once again at the beginning he works for SHIELD because this is the easy thing to do and not because of any personal desire to be there. He dodges all personal inquiries of Sam revealing that he is content to just go working and then come back home chilling alone and refuse all attempts Natasha makes to try and make him socialize more.
His mission is botched because of Fury and he confronts him on that and then on the Project Insight which he finds morally wrong. But he doesn’t go further than words and never really consider leaving SHIELD as is revealed during his talk with Peggy. He thinks the Project is wrong, doesn’t especially like working for SHIELD and doesn’t trust Fury, yet he refuses to take action since he doesn’t know what to do next (“I just want to do what’s right, I guess I’m not sure what that is anymore”).
Fury is the one that puts him on the path to resist SHIELD when he comes over after being attacked. And once again even as he doesn’t trust him, Steve follows since he doesn’t know what to do. Then the revelation: it was Hydra all along and while it destroys Natasha to learn this it brings Steve peace as he finally is given a clear enemy and goal with a bonus personal stakes that are only upped when the Bucky revelation comes.
That’s how we have the Steve that confronts Fury once again but this time doesn’t take no for an answer and impose his course of action, the one that rejects all attempts made by his allies to consider the possibility of having to neutralize Bucky and the one’s that refuses to fight once the Insight’s threat is over because he’s sure he can reach Bucky.
TL;DR: Steve’s a reactive person at his core and is content to be coasting through life without any real initiative most of the time. Then when something makes his way into his head he becomes an unmovable force that will power through everything or die trying and is focused on how to achieve his goal and not what comes after. In both modes Steve never worries about “after” and straight up refuses to consider it, he is the living embodiment of “crossing that bridge when it comes to it”. For him the future is at the bottom of his priority list. Like his shield always finds his way back to his hand, Steve’s always reverts to a reactive mindset when a goal his achieved.
That’s why he is so angry at Tony for Ultron because it crosses his inner psyche deeply, this is more him lashing out because he is profoundly unsettled than because of any true conviction on his part about lying. For Steve putting the future before anything is endangering the present and he refuses to take any decision that could results in unwanted consequences if he has not the insurance of an instant reward.
That’s whyhe dresses down Tony for Ultron but brushes off Lagos, as Lagos was an overall success despite the losses of life while Ultron was a failure with nothing to show for it except from Vision which seems like a meagre consolation for the destruction caused.
That’s why he refuses to consider any collateral damages as a fault of his own that can be corrected because if he stops for one second to consider the potential repercussion of his actions he’ll be unable to move or take a decision in battle again (“if you start running you’ll never stop”, rings any bell?).
That’s whyhe rejects the Sokovia Accords because they are not to his satisfaction, not caring about Natasha and Tony’s POV that we should take this deal instead of risking being given a harsher hand. For him if the Sokovia Accords failed then it was a victory and if something else is done he’ll fight it as well, he prefers to risk a more bitter loss to secure a victory instead of taking a mild loss without any reward.
That’s why the only moment he considered signing the Accords were when he was given a concrete instant bonus for it, ie. pardon for him, Sam and Bucky and care given to Bucky.
The Battle of Fort St. George (or Fort George) was the culmination of a Continental Army raiding expedition led by Benjamin Tallmadge against a fortified Loyalist outpost and storage depot at the Manor St. George on the south coast of Long Island on November 23, 1780, during the American Revolutionary War. Tallmadge’s raid was successful; the garrison was surprised, and many provisions and prisoners were taken. (x)
Big Bang reactions to their crush not knowing they are famous
[GIFs not mine]
T.O.P He was trying to impress you the whole week while you were in Germany. He was staying at the same hotel and you just started talking. He had a ‘thing’ for you and you noticed how nervously he was talking so that made you laugh. You agreed to go out with him and you thought it was adorable and romantic to have a dinner on the rooftop restaurant alone. You thought he was just in Germany because of work or something like that, but when he started talking about how awesome his next movie will be and how he will have a tour next year, you just stared at him for a moment. He saw at the beginning you had no idea he was famous. That’s why he liked you more. But since he couldn’t just say nothing about it. He was glad you surprised how successful he is. He laughed about your reaction the whole evening and promised you he’ll get you a ticket for their upcoming concert. “Yeah…We have a tour starting next week… We have a few concerts here too. Will you still be here?” * came dressed like that*
G-Dragon You met each other on a fashion show in Paris and you just though he must be someone’s rich son and nothing big. You found him interesting and approached him. At the beginning, he just stared at you but then he introduced himself and you started talking. He invited you to go to a gallery with him and you thought he must be trying hard to impress you with money. After you talked with him for a while and agreed to go on a date with him you realized even tho he has money he is very nice and well manured. When he told you about his work you were very surprised. But good surprised. He didn’t seem like a business person and he made a really good impression on you. He was happy you liked his personality and not his money. He appreciated that the most. He even thanked you for the wonderful evening. “Thank you, let’s meet again soon.”
Taeyang When he arrived at the airport in Italy, you were hired to pick him up and drive him to the hotel since he was here because of your father’s fashion show. You didn’t know who he was, your father just gave you a picture of how he looks and his name. You had some problem pronouncing that but he found you. He was amazed just by the style you were dressed. Your big white coat standing out. He kissed your hand and you thought he was just kissing up to you. You drove him to a hotel and when he met you next time you were still harsh on him because you had no idea who he was. He introduced himself formal now and told you about his occupation. You wanted to see the truth and he showed you his solo song 'Eyes, nose, lips’ and you were impressed how amazing his voice was. He loved your reaction and how you just stared at him for a couple minutes after hearing that. “Kekekeke…. Yeah, that’s me. I’m singing that… kkekke”
Daesung You came to South Korea because your father’s company was having an international meeting there and you had to be there. You also went in some famous clubs. One of them happened to be Seungri’s and he invited you to a party since he knew your father. You met Daesung there and you just thought he was hilarious and you couldn’t stop giggling at his cute faces. You couldn’t stop talking with him and he was constantly talking with you too. You thanked Seungri for the invitation and asked him for a favor For Daesung’s number since you were too shy to ask him yourself. He laughed and gave you his number and promised you Daesung will call you first to ask you out. You weren’t surprised to get a text the next morning. He asked you out on a dinner. You went and he finally introduced himself as D-lite and Daesung from BIGBANG. He loved when you said you don’t mind if he’s a rich man or an average man because you fell for his personality. “THAT. WAS. THE. SWEETEST. THING. SOMEONE. EVER. SAID. TO ME.”
Seungri He was in one of his famous clubs in England when he met you. You were just out with you friends and you were drunk af so you just talked to him because you saw him watching you. The next morning you woke up to seeing all unread messages from him. You luckily remembered him and wanted to apologize. He wanted to meet you anyways so you met on a lunch. He prepared a really fancy restaurant for you to eat and when you saw the prices you just wanted to apologize and go. Since he really wanted to eat there you did. You got to know each other and of course, the first thing he said about himself was BIGBANG. When he saw you were interested he showed you their music videos and songs. He was very happy when you started dancing. He was sure you were a nice girl so while he was here he invited you out more and promised you’ll go to his concert this year. “Okay. But you’ll come backstage too, right? I CAN’T WAIT OMG YEEEEY!”
Aelin awoke as the morning light streamed in through the curtains. Music still wound its way through her head, she couldn’t banish it. She didn’t want to. Laying there looking at the ceiling she thought about how her friends and family had done this wonderful thing for her, for her realm. Tears started pooling in her eyes and she took a shuddering breath. Despite her tears Aelin felt lighter. Less weary in her soul. A way she hadn’t felt in so long.
She heard a shifting of bedsheets beside her and before she could stop it from happening she was tucked in tight flush against Rowan’s chest. Aelin felt him nuzzle into her loose hair about her neck.
“Morning Aelin,” Rowan mumbled into her hair, pulling her impossibly closer.
“Good morning,” Aelin replied as she held onto the arm that encased her.
Rowan sighed and his breath tickled at Aelin’s neck and she let out a small laugh. Almost a giggle. A playful girlish giggle. The last time she had done that… well, she couldn’t remember. Sure she had laughed, but again, it felt lighter. Aelin rolled over Rowan arms still around her and stretched out. That was when the weight of the day fell on her and all the music in her head vanished. Meetings upon meetings filled up her day, another day where she would barely a moment to herself. Or a moment with her husband.
As if reading her thoughts Rowan propped himself up an elbow and said, “We have now, Fireheart.”
His kiss was soft and it soothed her aching soul. He was what she needed. Her mate who knew and accepted every part of her and didn’t baulk at the darkness that was still inside. So Aelin lost herself in that kiss, she lost herself in Rowan as his hands began to wander and her own became tangled in his hair.
Rowan watched as Aelin walked away, standing straighter and more confident than he had seen in a long time. Aelin had told him as she dressed how she had woken with the music in her head and how it had made her feel lighter. She affirmed that she was still slightly annoyed that he had kept the music hall a secret, but she was also eternally grateful. To everyone who had taken part and given anything towards it. But Rowan did not miss how Aelin’s features darkened when it was time to start the day. The ruling of the kingdom was a heavy burden to bear and he, Aedion, Lysandra, Elide, they all helped where they could. But still Aelin was the Queen, and there were some things only the Queen could attend to. Rowan did not have long before his own day started. But he had a letter he needed to write to a friend. A friend who demanded to know how the surprise had gone because he could not be present. And a friend Rowan needed to ask another favour of.
A few weeks passed since the first performance at the music hall, but sadly Rowan had not been able to get Aelin to another. There had only been one since the first, but still he knew how much it meant to Aelin and how it made her feel. And with the way these Lords were frustrating Aelin, Rowan wanted her to go. If only for an escape and release. They sat around the breakfast table now, Aedion and Lysandra with them. And soon enough Fenrys, Connall and Vaughn joined them as well.
Fenrys looked as though the soft morning light was much too bright for him and he was practically cringing at every sound.
“Rough night, Fenrys?” Aelin asked.
Fenrys barely looked in her direction and just groaned. Aelin gave him a sweet smile before picking up her fork and then let it clatter onto her empty plate. Fenrys groaned again and covered his face with his hands, everyone else at the table was either smirking or sniggering.
“Now that’s so way to speak to your Queen,” Aelin said lifting her knife this time. “What adventures did you get up to?”
Fenrys eyed the knife that was poised for dropping, then the wicked smile on Aelin’s face. Rowan suppressed the chuckle he felt building. Aelin would do it if Fenrys didn’t answer. They would play this game until it likely came to blows in the training yard, ending with them both laughing and unable to do anything.
Luckily for Fenrys he was saved from answering by the arrival of the messenger who then drew the attention of the Queen.
“Letters from Adarlan Majesties,” the messenger addressed both Aelin and Rowan and bowed.
Aelin smiled, but that smile fell when the messenger handed Rowan the letters instead, and with a bow, left the room. Rowan looked down at the letters in his hand then back to Aelin who had a surprised and expectant look on her face. Rowan hopefully knew what was in these letters and he didn’t want Aelin knowing. He got uncharacteristically nervous and everyone noticed.
Rowan cleared his throat, “Dorian just wanted to know how the concert went.”
“That requires two letters?” Aedion asked, smiling into his cup. Rowan sent him a cutting look.
“We all know Rowan and Dorian have been dedicated pen pals since the witch attack,” Fenrys supplied, piling food on his plate. “Looks like one letter wasn’t enough to convey the needed sentiments.”
Rowan was going to break him later in training. Aedion too, in fact. The two tactless idiots were going to ruin him if they didn’t keep their mouths shut. Rowan glanced back to Aelin who was still watching him. Before his resolve snapped Rowan stood and placed a kiss on Aelin’s head.
“I need to start my day.” Then Rowan looked over Aedion and Fenrys, “training yard. One hour.”
Fenrys visible paled while Aedion managed to keep his bravado.
Once out of sight and sound Rowan ripped into the first letter. It was from Dorian. Rowan skimmed over the pleasantries and congratulations of the success of the surprise, then at the end there it was. Rowan ripped into the second letter, this one from a craftsmen. They asked for any specifications, a date and a quote for funds needed and Rowan gave a canine bearing grin to the letter. He would be in Dorian’s debt for a long while.
