take me to a bbq

This property is HOA-Free.

This is a long one, because it involves a growing escalation of actions. TLDR at the bottom. Some terms are translated because I don’t live in an English-speaking country.

We moved houses last year, to the ugliest in the street. The previous owners must have loved Mondriaan, because the front was red/blue/yellow in windowframes and door. One paintjob, many thankful neighbors and several months later, I get an invitation to a voluntary “Collective of inhabitants”, the terms read like an opt-in HOA that you can never leave. A long list of restrictions, and no benefits? No thanks.

Tumblr woes

A/N: This is my entry for @supernatural-jackles birthday challenge! Happy birthday & sorry that everything I write is angsty. I had the gif that you see below. I couldn’t decide how I wanted to wrap the fic up so it just kept going & going.

Warnings: Angst, accusations of cheating, fluff? (me? write fluff?)

Jensen x Daughter!Reader

You sat on your bed scrolling through Tumblr and couldn’t help the scowl that was overtaking your face. Your father and step mom always told you to stay away from the website, but you couldn’t help yourself; you were seventeen and thought you could take on the haters of Tumblr.

You were wrong.

After arguing with another person who ran a hate blog against your step mom you couldn’t take it anymore and slammed your laptop shut. These people thought they knew everything about your family’s life when in reality they only ever saw small glimpses of it.

So what if your family had a nanny? Most families have a nanny or babysitter.

So what if your family ordered dinner? The average American family eats out between four and five times a week.

Who cares if you have a cleaning lady? You can hire people on Craigslist to clean your house for twenty dollars.

However if your family does anything like this is all falls back on your step mom, Danneel, and how ‘terrible of a wife and mother’ she is; and you were sick of it.

  • ill have fun with this cause jaebum is my warm father whom i love and would go to war for
  • also bambam is in this one :D
  • speaking of fathers, jaebum basically is one
  • instead of haunting a house per se, he haunts a whole neighborhood, the one where he grew up
  • the way jaebum died was fucked up bc he was with his brother kunpimook one halloween night, trick or treating
  • jaebum had thought it’d be fun to go down to the more closed off part of the neighborhood where people rarely put up decorations or did anything in the holiday spirit
  • he had only meant to spook his brother, to maybe disappear behind a tree and jump out at him later
  • but then these assholes playing around with some knives try to freak them out
  • well, one of these assholes in particular got too close to jaebum’s little bro and to protect him jaebum got up in that dude’s face and shoved him away
  • the asshole didn’t like that
  • jaebum noticed that the demeanor changed from just teasing to something serious bc these guys really thought they were something, and here jb was, “threatening them”
  • jb told kunpimook to run back home to his parents bc he didn’t want him to get hurt and kunpimook did run off, but bc he was too afraid for his brother, he hid behind a tree to watch
  • one of the guys lunged at jb and he dodged, but there were four against one and he was steadily losing
  • then out of nowhere one came up behind him and kunpimook yelled his brother’s name to warn him
  • jaebum whipped around too fast
  • the knife was already hilt deep in jaebum’s midsection by then
  • when the other guys realized what happened, they panicked and ran off and kunpimook ran over to his brother, grabbing him before he could fall onto the cold gravel
  • “i thought i told you to run” jaebum coughed, his mouth filling with blood
  • kunpimook was freaking out like he didn’t want to leave jaebum there, he wanted to pull the knife out but he knew it would just make it worse, and there was no way he could get anyone’s attention fast enough from where they were
  • still, it didn’t stop him from yelling for help
  • his voice broke with every second that passed and the colder jaebum’s hand began to feel his voice turned hysteric
  • “run, bam. go get mom. everything will be alright” jaebum tried to reassure his brother, but kunpimook was already bawling his eyes out bc nothing was going to be alright. jb was dying and he knew it
  • “no it won’t. not without you”
  • jaebum just smiles as best as he can, his chest heaving for air as the world starts to daze away
  • before he dies though, he feels his brother close his hand around his, whispering things like “stay awake okay? you promised you were gonna take me to get really good bbq, after i graduate high school school remember?” “we can go home and watch all your favorite movies, even the boring ones” “i’ll even lend you my comic collection” “please don’t leave me, jaebum”
  • just made myself cry wtf
  • it’s only a few weeks after his funeral when jaebum suddenly finds himself in the neighborhood where he died, standing outside his parents’ house
  • kunpimook is helping his family pack up their things, and when jaebum realizes what’s going on he panics
  • “bam!! bam it’s me!” he yells, running in front of his brother to get his attention, but kunpimook only flinches, grasping at the box in his small hands a little tighter before walking right through jb
  • bc ever since jb’s death he’s been having nightmares, seeing jb in the corner of his eye even though he knows he’s not there
  • jaebum is losing his mind trying to comprehend what’s happening, trying to understand why no one could see him, why his brother just walked through him like he was a-
  • ghost. he was a ghost now.
  • the realization is so painful for jaebum that all he can do is sit in the driveway, screaming and crying and wishing his family could hear him
  • they don’t
  • they’ve packed their car to the roof and they’re pulling out of the driveway and the last thing jaebum sees is kunpimook peeking out of the window, his eyes wet with tears as he stares at the house and jaebum thinks for just a minute that his brother sees him but by then they’re already down the street and out of sight
  • turns out, kunpimook did see him
  • everyday since then, kunpimook thought of ways to explain what he’d seen, trying to reassure himself that he hadn’t seen his big brother crying in the driveway when he’d been there to see them lower his lifeless body into the ground
  • to cope, he starts researching ghosts
  • he knows everything about them, how they inhabit, how they are sometimes unable to move on, and he thinks that maybe jb hadn’t moved on yet either
  • determined, he dedicates his time to research and promises himself that he’ll go back to his old house one day and basically that’s what he does
  • in comes you, a medium
  • ever since you were a kid, you had always been really in tune with spirits and the like and no one knew why, but you decided to make a living out of it
  • your speciality was communicating with spirits and helping them talk to their loved ones before helping them cross over
  • you also happen to live in the same neighborhood bam and jb did
  • one day you get a call from a young man explaining that he needed to speak to his older brother, and believed he was still walking the neighborhood he died in, so you set up an appointment to meet 
  • when you met bam, you were immediately taken aback bc hey, this kid is super young
  • not super young but you know,,, you’ve got some years on him
  • anywho he’s very polite and tells you to call him bambam bc he doesn’t want the meeting between you two to be so stiff but you can tell by the shake in his hands that he’s nervous beyond hiding so you just give him a reassuring smile like “it’ll be alright, communicating with those who’ve passed can be intimidating but I believe we can do it together”
  • kunpimook can’t help but feel like that comforting tone of voice is familiar, but he can’t place it just yet
  • you two end up visiting his house, which hasn’t been sold since the Im family moved out due to the rumors about the family’s son’s death
  • you had been a bit older than bam when the news first came out, and while you had never met the Im family, they seemed so nice
  • your parents wouldn’t shut up about their dead son for so long that you swore you started seeing him in your dreams, asking you for help
  • which is partly why you took the job when you realized who was on the other line
  • “jaebum right?” you ask kunpimook, who just nods with his hands stuffed deep in his pockets “im going to call on him okay? don’t be alarmed if things start flying or the temperature drops” 
  • kunpimook stands in the corner, watching as you begin to feel around for energy, your eyes shut tight
  • slowly, you call jaebum’s name
  • to your shock, you feel freezing all of a sudden
  • you reach up to warm yourself when your hand hits something hard, and your eyes immediately fly open, staring face to chest with none other than jaebum himself
  • immediately you fly back in surprise, bam runs up to you, grabbing your arms to steady you with a “are you okay? what’s wrong?” 
  • and you just stare at him like “can’t you see?”
  • for a minute, he surveys the area and his eyes pass over jaebum’s stoic figure a few times before he looks back down at you, shaking his head
  • at this, you hear a suppressed sob, and look back over to where jaebum is, now turned away from the both of you with his hand over his mouth
  • gently, you tell bam to stand outside for a minute, and reluctantly he agrees
  • as soon as he’s gone, you whisper “jaebum? that’s you, right?”
  • “why can’t he see me?” is all he can repeat, dropping his head against the wall across from you
  • you’ve never heard such a sad, hopeless voice before and immediately your heart breaks
  • “he’s just not used to it. i’m sure if we try again-” “he saw me when he moved away, and now he can’t see me at all”
  • gently, you reach out, and when your hand makes contact with jaebum’s shoulder, he gasps
  • “y-you can touch me?” he sounds so surprised that he’s momentarily distracted from his grief
  • “i’ve always been able to touch spirits. just as i’ve always been able to see them. bambam called me to help find you, you know.”
  • jb’s so overwhelmed bc you!! someone is touching him!! someone can really touch him and if you’re here, then maybe he can talk to his brother
  • you’re able to slowly get him to open up, asking him questions about his life, checking to see how much he remembers and what he’s been doing since he died
  • turns out, jaebum has been protecting the children of the neighborhood
  • he tells you stories about how ever since the night he died, he’s become fiercely loyal to the other children that might be in danger 
  • every halloween, and really every other day, jaebum watches over the kids and makes sure they get home safely, protects them from bullies, and scares off robbers and predators alike
  • he’s basically become the unsung hero to the neighborhood, and bc of this, there hasn’t been an incident like jaebum’s in years
  • finally, jaebum asks if there’s a way bambam can see him, and you tell him that you’ll try your best
  • bringing bambam back in, you tell him to focus on his memories of his brother and tell jaebum to focus on being seen
  • for a while, it seems like it’s not working, but then bambam stumbles upon a rather strong memory of his brother and him as children, playing in the pool in the summer heat, and when he smiles, he makes eye contact with his brother
  • almost immediately, bambam collapses into his arms and hugs him close, his tears free flowing bc he’s finally in his brother’s arms again. they’re colder, and they’re not as strong as they used to be, but they’re his brother’s and they make him feel safe
  • the two stay like that for a long time, holding each other and speaking about how much they miss the other, and when you’re just about to leave, thinking it’s time you give them some space, jaebum calls for you and with the biggest smile you’ve ever seen, he thanks you
  • after that day, you can’t seem to stay away
  • bambam comes down to the house with you every weekend when he’s out of school, and the two of you summon jb to talk for hours
  • at first, it was really just bam talking to jb about all the things he’d missed but slowly jb becomes curious of you, and you tell them all the stories of spirits that you’ve encountered as a medium
  • you tell them funny tales of demons trapped in ouija boards and all the funny celebrities you’ve called back to life to talk to you when you were bored
  • you even find yourself going to the house without bam just to talk and jaebum doesn’t seem to mind at all
  • you find out jaebum has an affinity for mind games
  • you bring him things like puzzles, sudoku, mahjong, and he just plays them with you for hours
  • tells you about how popular he was amongst the ladies when he was alive 
  • “i had so many girls you could call me a nunnery” “please never speak to me again”
  • jaebum asks you to summon michael jackson once but it doesn’t work
  • whenever bam is telling stories about his time in college, he has to be v v careful about what he says
  • one time he was like twenty minutes into a really funny story about how his friend got arrested for streaking on campus and he was about to mention how he had gotten blackout drunk but jaebum just gives him this look. you know the one. the dad one
  • bambam decides he won’t finish the story
  • on actual halloween, you and bam follow jaebum around the neighborhood and help him keep an eye out for the lil kiddies and you swoon whenever he looks at them and smiles bc he looks so fond of them all and it’s so sweet how protective he is
  • “you would’ve been a great father” you tell him once, and you swear you see a flash of sadness in his eyes for a moment before he laughs it off with “bambam’s already been enough to take care of in the first place”
  • cue an offended high pitched “hey!!1!”
  • tries to catch onto the latest #memes but bam always shows him outdated ones on purpose just to make fun of him
  • when jaebum brings up you guys possibly trying the cinnamon challenge you know bam has to be stopped
  • of course bam teaches him how to dab
  • now whenever you guys summon jb he immediately dabs in unison with bam
  • you: i want to strangle both of you to death
  • bam: heh, but jb’s already dead *finger guns*
  • jb: *finger guns*
  • once jb finds out how to appear in your house, he does it all the time
  • showering? jb is scolding you about cleaning your shower tiles more
  • cooking? jb has a lot to say abt the amount of junk food you consume
  • watching a drama? “back in my day, dramas were a lot less cliche” “back in your day the cameras they used to film dramas captured like four pixels so piss off”
  • tries to style his hair like the male leads you like in the drama but whenever you ask him if he’s imitating them he claims that he’s always looked like that
  • one day bam has the gall to say that if jb was still alive, he might’ve made a move on you
  • to your surprise jb doesn’t even deny it
  • he just shrugs like “prolly still will tbh”
  • when bam spills that jb used to sing him to sleep, you summon jb to your room one night and ask him to sing you to sleep as well
  • jaebum acts like it bothers him but he really doesn’t mind, slipping in next to you under the covers and absentmindedly carding his fingers through your hair like he used to do bam
  • you blush when he leans in a little more, complaining about how “small” your bed is before he begins to sing softly into your ear, his mouth inches away from your ear
  • despite being flustered by his proximity, you fall asleep very quickly, and jb watches with a warm smile, gently pressing a protective kiss to your temple before he whispers back “sleep tight, sweetheart”
  • jaebum is reluctant to admit it, but you’ve strangely become someone he wants to protect too
  • he thinks in another world, had that night never happened, he might’ve liked to be with you
  • bc you’re everything he’d want in someone tbh
  • you and bam get along like brother and sister, you understand him so well, and you’re kind and empathetic
  • you make him feel alive
  • jb knows he doesn’t have a chance bc honestly, he’s dead, there isn’t much he can do for you
  • and he knows one day you’ll find someone for you that can actually take care of you and it scares him, in a different way than it would if bam found someone bc of course bambam would always come back to jb no matter what, that’s his brother, but you don’t have any ties to him. if bam didn’t need your help anymore you might’ve moved on with your life already
  • still, when he hears your laugh, or he sees you smile, or he feels your hand ghost along his skin, he forgets that
  • even if just for a little bit
  • sometimes you catch him when he’s thinking like this, eyes focused on a part of your body, usually your lips, while you’re telling him about something going on in your life
  • “jae? are you okay? you look like you’re thinking about something heavy” you ask him, frowning as he slowly comes back to reality
  • “yeah, sorry, i was just… don’t worry, keep talking.” because even if he never tells you, you’ll always be his favorite “if only”

Take Me To Church [8/?]

A/N: Alright, as stated before the BBQ was suppose to be in one chapter but rambling fairy muses decided it needed to be a two parter. So I give you part one which I have spent the last few days cursing because… well, it’s just been a pain. 


Emma Swan returned to her southern hometown of Storybrooke to pick up the pieces of her last shattered relationship, determined to rebuild her life in the one place she swore she’d never return to. What she didn’t expect was the new priest and the journey of passion, love, and redemption he would take her on. [Priest!Killian Modern AU]

Pushing the couple of strands of hair that were always falling onto his forehead away, Killian adjusted his sunglasses and turned onto Fairytale Lane with Poison’s Every Rose Has It’s Thorn playing through his headphones, his left hand subconsciously tapping along to the beat against his thigh as he walked.

Not that the smooth harmony of Bret Michaels and an 80’s guitar beat could calm his swirling thoughts.

I went to the beach this weekend! 🐶💦
It was just me and human dad… We had a boys trip to the beach 👊🙌
I worked on my surf lifesaving skills, then we went home and I had a snooze 😴
The only downside of going to the beach is that it means I get a bath afterwards 😐
I decided to have the bath though because human dad said he would take me with him to a BBQ! 😋
A beagle has to look his best when going to a BBQ! 🙊🙈
