how to do prom on a budget

Because not everyone can afford to spend a ridiculous amount of money on one high school dance, but that absolutely does not mean that you can’t enjoy your evening to the fullest. 

  • Your prom dress definitely does not have to cost several hundred dollars. has some really nice formal dresses, and most of them are in the $50-100 range! (I know there are other websites specifically for discount prom dresses, but in my experience Amazon has better quality and lower prices. Plus prime shipping can be a lifesaver if you’re in a rush.)
  • And if fifty bucks is still out of your price range (and I know that it is for a lot of people), check your local thrift stores. Second-hand prom dresses sell for a fraction of their original price, and they’ve usually only been worn once or twice. Seriously, I got my first prom dress at a thrift store; it was a very pretty, very well-made dress, and I payed $15 for it. Check. Thrift. Stores. 
  • Or, if you just don’t like second-hand clothes or if you couldn’t find anything good in the thrift stores, check Ross or a similar store. (Ross is just what we have in my hometown.) They usually stock some formal dresses around prom season, and they’re almost all in the $20-30 range. I’ve gone to formal events in dresses from Ross before, and they hold up really well and look great in pictures.
  • All of the stores I just mentioned are also really good places to get shoes, jewelry, ect. to go with your dress. Even stores like Walmart and Target might be good places to look for shoes, bags, and other accessories. And definitely check your own wardrobe – you might already own stuff that will look good with your dress. (I’ve worn the same pair of heels to, like, three different proms at this point tbh.) 
  • Get a dress that fits you well without alterations. Seriously, tailors are so pricey – you’ll probably end up paying several times more for alterations than you did for the dress itself. You’ll save yourself a lot of money if you just buy a dress that already fits and looks good. 
  • Do your own hair and makeup. There are approximately two billion “prom hair and makeup” tutorials on YouTube – find one that you like and practice it a couple of times before the big night. 
  • And if you aren’t confident enough to do it yourself, call in a friend for help. I’m totally useless when it comes to hair, but my best friend is a hair genius. We would always get ready for dances together, and we’d do a trade-off; she’d do my hair for me, and I’d help her with her makeup, and then we’d both go to the dance looking amazing. It’s a good system, and makes getting ready a lot more fun.
  • Or, if you don’t want to do your own makeup and don’t have a friend you can ask, a lot of department stores that have makeup counters (Macy’s, Belk, ect.) will do free makeovers, even if you don’t buy any of the products! I had a friend in high school who always got her makeup done at Belk for school dances. I don’t like trusting a stranger to do my makeup, but it is an option if you want to get it done professionally without spending a lot of money. (MAC and Sephora both do “free” makeovers, but only if you make a $50 purchase first, so probably not the best option if you’re trying to save money. Always make sure that the makeover service really is free before you sit down in the makeup chair.)
  • Also, you absolutely do not have to wear dramatic makeup or complicated hairstyles to prom if you don’t want to. If bold makeup isn’t your thing, you can just do mascara and a little bit of lip gloss. If you don’t want to spend two hours on your hair, just wear it down, or pin it up in a really simple bun, or whatever works for you. You don’t even have to wear a dress if you don’t want to – if renting a tux is more your speed, then rent a tux. Feeling comfortable and confident in how you look is more important than following trends. 
It’s Hopeless - Sebastian Stan Imagine

warnings: angst, fluff, Chris!Best Friend,  

request: The reader is best friends with Chris, but in love with Sebastian. She goes to Chris for advice on how to let Seb know how she feels. - @ theimpossibleg1rl

words: 1700+


“What the fuck are you doin’ here!” You ran towards your best friend at full speed, knowing he can take your impact easily.

“Chris! I missed you!” Your voice was muffled by the neck of his Cap suit.

Chris kissed your hair, holding it flat with his large palm. His arm was wrapped around your waist, keeping you lifted off the ground, and stuck in his arms.  

“I missed you too, Honeypot.”  

You had flown down to surprise Chris while he shot Civil War in Atlanta. He’d been moaning for months about how he was so bored and homesick that you decided to shut him up. For a little bit, at least.

Setting you back on Earth, he bared a grin when whilst holding you away from his body. He was looking for any change to your appearance since he’d last saw you, which was five months ago. A lot can happen in five months, and Chris was always so diligent in knowing every detail of your face and appearance. He could spot your hair cut an inch shorter, or you wore a new outfit. It was nice to have a best friend who took notice in the effort you put into looking presentable.

“Well, what are you fuckin’ doin’ here? When’d you get in?” Chris slung one arm over your shoulder and guided you towards the crafts table, where a selection of decorous food was lying.

“Lisa ringed me the other week beggin’ me to take spring vacation to come visit you! I guess I was the only one fit to shut up your whining and begging.” Chris chuckled and nodded in acknowledgment. He knew he had been on the, rather, complaining side in his tone for the last few months. He just missed his family so much. He missed seeing Miles, Lucy, and Noah. He missed not being able to go to his parent’s house on Thursdays for spaghetti dinner.

“Like always, she was right. You are the only human being beside her that could make me feel like I’m home with just your presence.”

You felt so much love for your best friend, and now you felt even more. He was so sweet and benevolent in nature. He’d been that way since the day you met him, 26 years ago. He was just a scrawny 9 years old, terrified to go down the slide on the playground. You were an adventurous 8-year-old and told Chris he could hold your hand while going down the slide together. He agreed and ever since then you two have held each other’s hands through the worst of times and the best of times.

“It can’t be! No way!” Booming from across the lot, you saw Mackie waving his hands frantically at you while jogging over. There had been a companion with him, a brunette you had only heard about before. The brunette didn’t join Mackie when he ran over to you, though. He just set foot in a slow pace walk, almost looking uneager to meet the mysterious best friend of Chris’.

Anthony pulled you into a big hug when he finally reached you and Chris, both pigging out at the table of goodies. “Big Mack! How goes it?”

He shrugged nonchalantly, “Not too bad. Livin’ good down in A.T.L., aren’t we Evans?”

“You are, Mr. Life of The Party.” Anthony gawked at Chris and slapped his shoulder. “Don’t try and pretend that you ain’t out at the clubs, talkin’ to the ladies, now. We don’t wanna be tellin’ lies to our friends now do we?” You giggled at shook your head, turning back towards the donuts.

You held a chocolate glazed one to your mouth when you heard an unfamiliar voice from behind.

“I wouldn’t if I were you. Those have been baking in the sun for a good fifteen hours.”

Sebastian had his blue eyes cast towards you, with a warm smile upon his lips. Chuckling nervously, you agreed and laid the donut back on the tray.

“Thank you. Wouldn’t have wanted to catch food poisoning my first day here.” Sebastian just broadened his grin that, swear to god, was twinkling in the sunlight. He stuck out his hand and you met him halfway.


“Y/N. Chris’ best friend.”

Ever since that moment, you had been hooked to Sebastian Stan. Hopelessly, carelessly devoted to a man who didn’t even know you felt so much towards.

RFA+S’s ideal MCs

I have this headcanon that each RFA member has a specific kind of MC.

Not like how MC4 is Yoosung’s or MC2 is Zen’s.  That gives me the heebie-jeebies.  (It’s just their faces!  You know nothing about the girl behind the face!  Pairing one of the RFA members with a profile pic makes no sense, to me…it’s literally judging them by their appearance.)

I mean like how they each have a type, and depending on what route you’re on, your responses are different.  (Minor spoilers ahead!)

For example:  Jaehee’s MC would never get a good ending if she were on Jumin’s route.  She too assertive.  Too independ.  No go.

Saeyoung’s MC would never truly be happy with Zen.  Zen’s kind of square.  And MC is too quirky.  It wouldn’t last.

Jumin’s MC would get run over by Yoosung insisting that she’s “like Rika.”  Yoosung wouldn’t be able to read her like Jumin could.  And she would just go along with what Yoosung says, because she wants him to be happy.

Zen’s MC on Jaehee’s route is Jaehee’s first bad ending.  #truestory

So, my headcanons on what each RFA member’s “ideal MC” is like!

bughead fam - get to know all!

it’s pretty simple! just list your name, where you’re from, and three simple facts about yourself. I’d really like to get to know you all! 

My name is Nicole and I’m from a small town in Ontario, Canada. My favourite colour is aquamarine or teal, my most listened to song right now is “Scars To Your Beautiful” by Alessia Cara, and I am currently enrolled in the Broadcasting Television and Communications Media program in college! 


You know that scene in ROTJ when Luke asks Leia if she remembers her mother, and Leia replies that she was “very beautiful, kind, but… sad.” Those words often echo in my mind when I look at Diego. Despite his famously sunny personality, his eyes carry a tinge of sadness. Always beautiful, of course, often kind and compassionate, yes… but there’s some sorrow in that gaze, too. It’s just a small part of what makes him so utterly bewitching, I think, at least to me. There is nothing simple about this man.

A/N: I wrote this a long time ago. It was probably one of the first fics I’ve ever written. I hope you all enjoy this! Feedback is welcomed and appreciated! I love you all so much! <3 <3

You stood in the elevator of NCIS, your headphones in your ears as you listened to music.  It made the commute to work less stressful and put you in a better mood.  You swayed your hips slightly in the elevator as you waited for the ding.  In a few seconds you heard the ding that lead you to the squad room floor.  Tony and McGee were already chatting away, Tony smiling when he saw you.

You walked up to both of the agents, “good morning McGee, and DiNozzo,” you said cheerfully, taking out one of your earbuds.

“What is our fellow Agent [Y/N] [Y/L/N] listening to this morning,” Tony asked, walking over to you and taking the earbud you had taken out.  He listened for a few seconds before his face lit up like a Christmas tree.  “No way,” he exclaimed.  “You listen to Sinatra?”

Okay y'all. Here's the thing.

Stop whatever you are doing.

Pause the movie or tv show or homework or whatever.

If you’re in public, attempt to go somewhere private.

If you’re with people, see above.

If you can’t, then do this in your head, BUT ONLY AS A LAST RESORT.

Here’s what you’re going to do:
If you are near a mirror, go stand in front of it. If you have your phone, turn on the camera to selfie. If you have a reflective surface near you, go look at yourself. Even if it’s looking at your reflection in a spoon.

Next, look at yourself. I know that sometimes it’s really hard to do so, but just look at yourself.

You know something? That person in the mirror is amazing. That person is beautiful. That person can overcome any obstacle they want. That person can kick the ass of whatever is holding them back or down.


That person in the mirror? They have the most beautiful smile in the world. You want proof you say? Simple.


Go ahead. Do it. Look at that uniquely you smile. That smile is gorgeous.
You know something else?
So. Are. You.

If you’re standing in front of the mirror and negative thoughts keep coming into your mind, please, and say this outloud if you can (more emphasis that way) tell those negative thoughts to f*ck off. Tell them that they’re liars and that they’re vile little nasties that should be buried six feet under.

Next thing, or if you don’t want to tell off your negative thoughts, look at yourself in the mirror and compliment yourself. A good rule of thumb is two compliments for every negative thought. That way, the positive overpowers the negative, plus, if you do have a negative thought in the future and you don’t have time to or remember to replace the negative with a positive, you’ll have some in the bank.

Now, if all you did was scroll past this and/or not really believe it about yourself, go back up to the top and start over. Please.

And remember. You are so loved. You are so worth it. And you are so indescribable and uniquely you.

Thank you for requesting! 💋


  • He’s like a real geanie come true! “Name it, and I’ll get it for you.” 
  • He’ll be so so sweet. Like, tell you how beautiful you are, how much he loves you, and all that from time to time (like about every 30 minutes, but it doesn’t really sound creepy cause he knows his way with words)
  • Wanna go to Paris? “Go and start packing.”
  • Whoever this lad dates, they are one lucky person. Cause with Akashi, your birthday for him is birthweek (literally celebrates your birthday the whole week)
  • He’ll be so considerate about it. You’re a simple person? Then he’ll dodge all the fancy stuff and just spend time with you. You’re an outgoing type? Then you’ll be flying to Europe in no time. He’ll be spending your birthday with you depending on your likes and personality!

♥︎ KISE:

  • Will be the one to wake you up on your special day by planting kisses on your face and being jumpy and adorable and all that
  • He’ll sure wake you up early, cause the first stop, no surprise, is the MALL
  • Will so buy you everything you lay your eyes on for 5 seconds
  • So. Many. Photos. Taken.
  • Will be extra sweet and cuddly
  • Once night drops in, you’re the boss! (Because seriously, he’s been dragging you around the mall the whole day)


  • You’re one lucky person then. Waking up to the smell of your favourite food cooked and prepared by Himuro himself
  • May be a bit cliché about it, like buying you a beautiful necklace!
  • You’ve got the whole day planned in your hands. all you have to do is listen to him sing a song he wrote for you
  • Plan things like: dinner dates, ice skating, amusement parks; so be ready if you have nothing planned for your special day cause he has everything sorted out


  • Will so be the type to act like he forgot your birthday but actually prepared a birthday party for you
  • Will apologize about his lack of attention towards you on your actual birthday, so expect him to make up top you the next day
  • Will prepare so many pick-up lines and crack 5 of them every 30 minutes
  • Wrote you love letters numbered according to how old you are, each of them written about what he loves about you
  • Would want to try something new and fun with you on your birthday- scuba diving? Sky diving? Paragliding? You name it. Something unforgettable and epic!
Mystic Messenger Analysis: V’s role in the story.


I wanted to write another Mystic Messenger post after my analysis on the timeline regarding Mint Eye and the RFA (which I suggest you read if you haven’t!) and I came across cool artist @zoecam37‘s analysis of V’s character in the story

In all honesty I respectfully disagree with them in every single way conceivable so replying to their post and their views on V is a good excuse for me to write a bit on what I’ve been meaning to! @zoecam37 I hope you don’t mind I made a new post for it!

This got LONG but it’s divided by small sections where I address five different issues concerning V.

sorry if this is a really weird question lmao but?? i just wanted to know if it's awkward/cringey of a white person to approach a poc (black girl specifically) to compliment their hair? i saw a girl with the most absolutely beautiful braids today but im too shy and i don't want to come off as like weird abt it idk lmao.

Ye, it’s fine. Don’t qualify your compliment (”… pretty for a [insert specification here]”) or attempt to touch their hair without permission. A simple “Your hair is beautiful!” will suffice, without the receiver reading motive from your gesture.

The heat of the early morning sun rise danced across the back of your exposed thighs. Humming in pure bliss from a very good night’s rest, your hands reached out to stretch as it welcomed the sun’s bright rays warming your skin. That was one thing you always liked about Jaebum’s bedroom, he had the best room in the house for the sun rise to hit perfectly in the center of his bed. It was ‘an essential’ he had told the interior decorator when the mansion was being built.

Shinee as boyfriends
  • Requested by anonymous
  • Onew: Really frickin adorable. He would be so sweet to you and would make you feel like the most beautiful and loved person in the world. He'd buy you gifts at random times, just to show how much he cares about you. He would love to go on simple dates with you, a picnic being one of his favourites. He would also love to cuddle, and would be really good at it too. Jinki would love to hold you in his arms, and know that you're safe there with him. He would also like to rest his head in your lap, and love it when you run your fingers through his hair. He'd honestly be so sweet and caring, and he would always be there to listen to you and vice-versa. He be so much fun to be with too, and he'd always know how to make you laugh. Whether it was because he told a joke or he was being clumsy, you'd be guaranteed to have a good laugh when you're with him.
  • Key: He'd be so much fun to have as a boyfriend! He would joke around with, and there'd never be a dull moment with him. He would love to take you out on fun dates, something that'd be enjoyable for the both of you. I also feel like he'd really like going on spontaneous dates, where he'd just be waiting for you outside your work/school and he'd take you somewhere nice but simple, like your favourite café. He would also just randomly come over, sometimes to talk or just enjoy your company. He would like to cuddle too, for some reason you guys never really cuddled often. Just saying, but I also feel like he'd be great at making out. I also think he would like to cook for you, and tbh I think kibum would be pretty good at cooking.
  • Minho: He would be really protective of you. I don't really think he'd get necessarily jealous, but the minute someone even threatens to lay a finger on you it would not be pretty. I think he could be really romantic at times, and would love to take you out to expensive restaurants and buy you nice things. He'd want you to know how much you mean to him. I think he would love to buy you flowers, for no real reason except that he wanted to. He would be so cuddly too. I think he'd like to hold you and also be held, he wouldn't really have a preference. More often than not though you'd wake up to him snuggled up to you though, his head nuzzled into your neck. He would also be such a dork though. He would try to show off and look cool at something like soccer, and chances are he'd fail miserably. I also think that Minho would blush easily, like you could say that his hair looked really good today or something along those lines and there's a huge chance that he blush a little bit. Even though he'd try to act tough in front of you he's actually a totally sweetheart. I also think he'd love to give you back hugs.
  • Taemin: He would be really sweet, but I feel like when you first start dating he could be kind of awkward too. He'd want to sweep you off your feet with some smooth line, but end up messing up halfway through. He would be the type of boyfriend to see something at the store and buy it because it reminded him of you. I feel like he'd also be really clingy. Whenever you're together he'd always have an arm around you, or he'd be holding your hand. When you guys are watching a movie or something, I feel like he'd be the one to curl up to you, and that he'd would just enjoy the thought of being held. As for dates, I think Taemin would love to go somewhere like an amusement park! He would go on all the rides with you, and would try to win a stuffed animal for you at one of the games. Although I think he'd be a little shy with PDA, sometimes he would just randomly kiss you. He would try really hard to be a great boyfriend.
  • Jonghyun: If you want someone romantic, he's the one. He would shower you with love. Jonghyun would love to take you out to fancy places, or somewhere meaningful. For an anniversary he'd take you to the place where you had your first date, stuff like that. I also think he would love to buy you jewelry. He would be such a good listener, and you knew you could trust him with anything. He'd also like to joke around a lot too, it wouldn't always be serious with him. I feel like he would love to play pranks on you tbh. He would also love cuddling, and he'd be great at it! I think he would like to be the little spoon more, because it would make him feel more safe. He would give you the world and more if he could.

Hi. Could you do rfa + v and saeran with mc who has cold personality (I mean like she doesnt joke, prank ppl nor laugh that much, but smiles)

Please feel free to send me a feedback, if this is NOT what you wanted, I’ll do it again in no time!
Any mistakes, report to me


  • Well…Sometimes he thinks you don’t like him.
  • He tries to be funny or something and you look at him with the same face.
  • And you don’t even make a single joke!
  • Even Jumin makes jokes!
  • The good part is that you’re not going to prank him!
  • You have a cold personality, you look grumpy to him…
  • But that’s alright!
  • He loves you the same way, and if he sees you smile on some joke
  • Or anything funny that he says
  • He’ll be happy about it, that means you liked it!
  • And he’ll mess up the omelette just so you can laugh at it


  • Mc…? He made a joke.
  • Laugh!
  • He’s beautiful, strong and FUNNY
  • Hey…Look at this selfie, beautiful? 
  • Hey…I’ll dance the cutie pie song
  • Sometimes a little smile comes to your face, but this is not what he wants!
  • He’s now concerned…Maybe you don’t like him anymore?
  • This is possible?
  • When he demands an explanation, you told him about your cold personality
  • He’s feeling like a douchebag
  • Sorry MC, your smile is now enough for me!


  • Well…She has a cold personality.
  • You two doesn’t even laugh at Seven’s pranks.
  • Or jokes.
  • Or anything.
  • But Jaehee is concerned, she starts to think that something is bugging you 
  • “MC…Are you alright?”
  • “I’m good, and you Jaehee?”
  • Oh, what she’s doing?
  • Judging you for something she does?
  • This time, you two laughed. 
  • Strange, Jaehee laughed.
  • I never heard her laugh before.
  • Strange, MC laughed
  • I never heard her laugh before.


  • He’s serious too.
  • Jumin laugh? Smile?
  • People think this is a myth, but you saw his smile a lot of times.
  • When he tells you that “jokes” and you don’t laugh, he thinks about taking some classes on how to be funny.
  • But he realizes that you don’t even laugh at comedians, just give a little smile.
  • What does this mean? Oh, wait.
  • He knows.
  • He gives this same smile, you’re no different from him.
  • Realizing that made him smile, giving a little laugh because of how concerned he was about this simple thing.
  • When he heard you laugh because of Elizabeth, he wants to make you laugh again.
  • That was beautiful, he needs to record it.


  • This is a challenge.
  • MC doesn’t laugh, don’t pranks, don’t joke.
  • She’s a robot!
  • Yeah, this is just a conspiracy theory.
  • Maybe not…
  • But now the goal in his life, it’s to make you laugh
  • He doesn’t want a smile
  • He knows now about your cold personality, but he doesn’t care
  • He will do everything to make you laugh
  • And when he accomplishes it, he’ll be the happiest man in the earth
  • The smile will not go away from his face


  • Sometimes he made a joke here…There
  • You don’t laugh.
  • You don’t even make a joke, he can’t remember a single time.
  • But if you’re like this, it’s not a problem.
  • It’s your personality, but he needs to listen to your laugh.
  • So he always makes a joke here or there.
  • Always try to be a dork.
  • When he heard you laugh, he’s surprised…
  • He needs to listen to it again...
  • Take a picture of you laughing
  • Now this is the mission of his life!


  • Same.
  • Let’s be grumpy together.
  • Saeyoung made a joke?Prank?Anything.
  • Yeah, take that Saeyoung
  • Get out of here!
  • Can you guys be a punk couple now? The badass couple?
  • Saeran, stop with this idea.
  • In a miracle, you two laughed at the same thing, at the same time
  • In your minds, you two thought “That was cute…”
  • Saeran wants you to laugh more, he’ll even ask for Saeyoung for some jokes.
  • Really? You’re at the bottom of your life now.

I feel as though Master Depa Billaba isn't talked or drawn enough, she is such a wonderful person and even knows herself (like Qui-Gon) that the Jedi Order was wrong. So because of such I've always found the image in my head rather beautiful: it's a simple image really. It's just of Billaba, as a Force Ghost finally seeing her young Padawan again and Kanan (blind and all) simply bows to her and says that he missed her and Billaba puts her hands on his shoulders and smiles. What do you think?

There are a lot of characters in SW that unfortunately don’t get a lot of attention. I’m very fond of Depa, along with many of the prequel era Jedi. That’s a very sweet scene! All the Depa-Kanan reunion scenes! ;A;

I love your art and just you as a person! Also, you will forever be impressive to me if not of one thing: you seem to create art so quickly. Posted a detailed and beautiful comic two days ago? Now you have done a bunch of amazing stand alone pictures that may or may not make me question life as a whole (fishmob), or even simple drawings with evocative meaning behind them. Either way, you are an awesome person and I felt like telling you. :)

haha thank you so much!! gosh I just get tunnel vision when I have a good source of inspiration and I draw no matter what’s going on in my life. it’s not that I draw quick or anything anyone whos been to one of my streams know this I just dont know when to stop heh 

anonymous asked:

I don't know you. I just know you for your blog. I'd say I love you but you'd turn it down. I'd ask why you are sad, but you'd reject my help, I'd rant about your self loathing, but that would bring you down. I'd give you a hug, but I can't from here. I'd call you beautiful, but I don't know your appearance. I'd give a person the world if it made them happier; but we all know that's not what they long for. You long for something simple. Yet it's so hard to grasp. But Ima still say it. I care.

I care. I don’t want you to say anything tbh. I don’t want you to even thank me. I just want you to read. And know that a person gets you. That a person knows. Because I know. I care Nnochu.

i cant believe someone gets it… someone gets me

Once Upon a Dream - part 2

Part 1

Felicity stared up at the ceiling and pressed a breath of frustrated air through her clenched teeth. She struggled to hold back the tears; wiped each one that fell away angrily. This was going to be impossible. She didn’t have it in her; she was already exhausted. But Barry had been clear. “If you want the future to happen, don’t change the past.”

When her “hallucinations” had persisted, she’d called Barry. When he’d explained timelines and butterfly effects and the ins and outs of time travel she’d almost laughed out loud at how ridiculous it all sounded! This wasn’t a science fiction novel, this was her life!! But he’d been deadly serious when he’d warned her about how changing anything, ANYTHING, could produce a whole different future than the one she was seeing in her visions. Now she wasn’t just sleep deprived and overly emotional, she was terrified! Terrified to make one wrong move. She couldn’t live like that!  He had been hesitant to tell her the truth and was insistent that she not tell anyone else. Including Oliver. She would bear this burden alone.

Turning her head to the right, she sighed at the bright green 3:12 a.m. blinking back at her from the bedside clock. She turned to her side, flipped her pillow to the cold side and willed her mind and body to quiet. She couldn’t mess anything up by sleeping… Right? She’d just about gotten herself somewhat relaxed when a knock at the door sent her heart racing again. Who the –??

“Felicity?” A muffled voice filtered through the door.


No, no, no. She wasn’t ready for this. For him.

“Are you awake? Felicity? Can you let me in? I need to talk to you.”

No, no, no… Nope, no, no… Even as she repeated this mantra in her head, her feet starting moving towards the door of their own volition, her hand reached up to smooth her ponytail, then down to straighten her t-shirt. She watched that same hand reach out to unlock the door. “Traitor,” she thought. No.. No… N– “Hey,” he said softly when the door opened. Looking into his eyes, she felt her body fully and finally relax, her mind quiet. She almost cried with how peaceful she suddenly felt.  She had been physically fighting with her body’s need to be close to him for days on end and having him within arms reach, she was certain she was about to lose the battle.  Before she could even register what she should or shouldn’t do, she had walked into his arms.  He didn’t seem surprised or uncertain, in fact, he may have met her halfway.  Their bodies came together with more force than she’d intended; more a lovers embrace than that between friends.  In the past, she’d always hugged him by pulling her arms up over his shoulders and then around his neck, but not this time. Her arms were around his torso, her face buried in his chest. He surrounded her and she was desperate for the feeling of home his embrace inspired in her.

“Felicity…” He breathed, his arms tightening. She synchronized her breaths to the rise and fall of his chest against her cheek.  She took comfort in the somehow familiar beat of his heart thumping steadily under her ear. She may never let go.

“Don’t let go.” His reply told her she’d spoken her last thought out loud, but she was experiencing way too many emotions to add embarrassment to the list.  He walked her backwards into the apartment and pushed the door closed with his foot.

“Felicity… “ He ran his hand down her ponytail.  Grasping the end, he gently tugged, coaxing her to tip her head back and meet his eyes.  “What’s happening?”  He looked at her without expectation and she realized he didn’t think she’d have the answer.  He’d just come to speculate together; with the one person he’d hoped would understand.  If his visions had been anything like hers, he was drawn here… drawn to her.  “I know what it’s like to think you’re a beautiful woman… to imagine what it would be like to kiss you… to -”

“You do?” She interrupted, surprised despite what she now knew the future held for them.  Surprised that this Oliver, at this moment in time, had imagined kissing her. 

“Felicity…” he whispered her name gruffly; 4 simple syllables filled with so much emotion.  “Of course I do.  I think about-”  he sighed “but this is different.  These don’t feel like dreams or fantasies.”  Her face heated at the word fantasies… her body was still lined up with his, his fingers still in her hair and he was talking about having fantasies… about her.  This was so surreal.  It felt so weird and so right at the same time.  She tried to stay focused on what he was saying.

“These are so real… I can taste the red wine on your lips when we kiss.  I can feel the softness of your skin under my fingertips” his eyes had shifted to her lips, his fingers were absentmindedly stroking her back… and she might be hyperventilating.  Her looked back into her eyes.  “I hear your laugh so clearly, I’ve looked around to make sure I’m the only one.”  She chuckled at that and he smiled.  “I love your laugh…”  She swallowed and felt her body move against his as her breath sped up.  “They feel like memories.  They feel so real.  I want them to be real.”  He looked into her eyes so intensely she was afraid the next way her body would betray her was by depriving her of breath altogether.  “In one of these visions… I’ve never… I couldn’t remember the last time I…”

“Usually I’m the one talking in sentence fragments.”  She smiled and he huffed out a laugh.

“I’ve seen that one too… He was… I was so nervous to ask you out.  I don’t know how I made it to the point where I thought I actually deserved to have the answer be yes.” 

“Oliver… “

“I know,” he interrupted.  “I don’t how and I don’t know why… but I know.”

After looking at each other for what should have been an uncomfortably long amount of time, but felt nothing but right, her eyes fluttered downwards and she finally pulled away.  She slid her arm from around his waist and after a slight tightening of his arms, he allowed her the distance.  But she just took his hand and led him to the couch.  They sat close and their fingers remained intertwined.  However, just the small amount of space had helped to clear her head and the calm she had felt with his presence, in his arms, was slowly fading… panic was incrementally taking it’s place.  So far, he’d done most of the talking… which was definitely not par for the course, but had kept her from having to lie to him.  She wasn’t sure she could do it.  No, she could.  She would.  If it meant securing their future together, she could do it.  Right?  She needed to buy herself more time…

“What was the vision?”

“Hmm?” he said, he was looking down at their hands, watching his thumb stroke her skin.  “I expected it to be different… like how reality is never quite as good as the fantasy… but your skin is just as soft as I remember.”  His voice was so soft, lost in his thoughts… lost in the sensation.  Her skin broke out in emotional goosebumps at his words and his touch.  She watched his mouth turn up into the kind of smile that she shouldn’t yet have the intimate knowledge of, but did…  “You always get goosebumps when you’re feeling -”

She pulled her hand away, stopping his line of speech.  She rubbed her hand where his touch still burned her skin.  He was still smiling when he said, “Sorry.  It’s hard to separate what’s true now from what I’ve been seeing.”

“I know.”  She replied softly.  “Trust me, I understand.”  He opened his mouth and she imagined her response was too much of a segue into questions about what was happening to them.  She had to get him off that track


“Tell me about your vision,”  she interrupted quickly.  “The one that made you talk in sentence fragments.”  She smiled.

His eyes focused on her intently.  “That one… It was before we were together, but I think it’s when I knew.  I’ve never felt so… certain.  I don’t know what was happening… but there were tears in your eyes, blood on your face.  Looking at you, I wanted nothing more than to turn back time… “ she flinched slightly at his words.  “It felt like the world was coming down around us… and all I wanted was to protect you from the fall out.  But you pulled yourself together before me.  You used your loud voice,” he smiled then grew serious again “and told me I wasn’t done fighting… then you told me I wasn’t alone, but I still felt like everything was on my shoulders… “ he paused to wipe away a tear that was silently cascading down her cheek.  “But then you said -”

“and I believe in you.”

“Yeah.  And I believed you.  When you put your arms around me… I didn’t feel alone anymore.  I knew I could trust you.  That you were with me.  That I could rely on you.  My partner.”

“I trust you too.”  She squared her shoulders, took a deep breath and reached for his hand.”  “Oliver… I have to tell you something.”

You’d look down at your phone every once and awhile, on a normal day. More often than not if you were in a situation surrounded by people you didn’t know. You’d look at a few articles on news websites, check out your social media, scan your surroundings and repeat. You would have texted Barry. Would have. But, the dark haired male was one to rarely jump onto his feet to answer his phone, or at least it seemed that way now-a-days. You hadn’t felt your phone vibrate from a text or phone call from him in over two weeks, and worry ridiculed inside of your mind. What if something happened to him? Thoughts would run wild, and consequently, you’d being concocting the worst case scenarios.

What if? Swallowing softly, you tilted your head and flipped your phone idly in your hands. You didn’t know anyone, because Barry had kept his life surprisingly private other than the personal things he felt comfortable with sharing, who could tell you if he was hurt, or if he was missing. Thus, the worry and anxiety would come over you like a wave when you put your mind to it. Which happened to be more often than not, as your mind wandered to the sharpy beautiful Barry Allen a lot during the day.
