Temeraire Series: In His Majesty’s Service - [Part 2]

“If you would like to have your ship back,” Temeraire said, “I will let someone else ride me. Not him, because he says things that are not true; but I will not make you stay.”

Laurence stood motionless for a moment, his hands still on Temeraire’s head, with the dragon’s warm breath curling around him.

“No, my dear,” he said at last, softly, knowing it was only the truth. “I would rather have you than any ship in the Navy.”

-His Majesty’s Dragon by Naomi Novik

Party Girl ~ Shawn Mendes Imagine

I don’t know how I feel about this, so if it really sucks I am sorry I have just had a lot going on.

For most people, not seeing there boyfriend lasted only a few hours before they were in each other’s arms again.  But, this was not the case for you.  You had to wait months, maybe even a year sometimes before your boyfriend Shawn came back to you.  You did know this when you started talking to him, he told you it would be hard and if you did not want to be with his he totally understood.  This did not faze you, granted you have never had a relationship where the other person was not in reach to be with but the love you had for Shawn was something you thought would be able to get through anything. So, you continued to be with him.

But, that was at the beginning and having been with Shawn 2 years and only have spent 6 months of that time together did take a lot out of you.  He was once again on a tour, something he never seems to be off and if he was it was mainly spent getting ready for the next one.  You had tried your hardest, trying to cope with not having him there with you.  But, you couldn’t help but go back to your bad habit for rest bite from all that was happening in your head.  

Before you met Shawn, you were rarely sober, this was mainly because you were in college which led to you being invited to a lot of house parties.  This meant you rarely had a day away from drink of any kind.  This was until you met Shawn and all your time was focused on being with him.  Now having him being away from tour these cravings came back up.  You needed the sour but also sweet taste of burning alcohol down your throat and luckily for you it was not hard to find a house party, considering you were friends with a lot of people that either knew people who had them or had them themselves you were able to use this to your advantage.

You could not remember a night that Shawn had been away that you were sober, and you would not have had this any other way.  The pain you had before from not having Shawn with you had not passed your being for several weeks.  Your friends had worried for you, but knowing how you usually were when Shawn wasn’t here discarded it.  If you looked healthy they did not mind.  

So, like many days before you.  You were now in front of your bedroom mirror with a new dress on and ready for the new strangers that you were yet to meet.  Your dress a lot shorter than it should be for someone that was in a relationship, it was almost inviting which you did not mind.  You would never cheat on Shawn, knowing that would hurt you more than anything.  But, you did enjoy the looks men gave you, it was a good confidence boost.  Which you did need after being slatted by many news outlets.  

You collected your boots from your wardrobe and slowly slid them up your legs.  They were dark red, which complimented your complexion.  You grabbed your side bag and phone off charge before making your way towards the front door, making sure to grab your flat keys before heading out to the taxi which was waiting for you.  You did not even want to think of how much you had spent on taxis, knowing it would have been a small fortune.

The journey was not if you anticipated, and you were stepping out into the blistering cold.  You pulled your small jacket around you more before rushing up to the stairs and stepping in to the house.  You were shocked at how many people were here, when you got told it was a small gathering you did not expect to see what seemed like over a hundred people here.  Never-the-less you discarded your jacket in the pantry, and quickly making your way into the kitchen.  “Just what I need” you said aloud as you began pouring the vodka out into a red solo cup, you had not been to one party that hadn’t had these at.  Typical!

You took advantage of the free alcohol by filling your cup up a few more times before deciding to see if your friends had arrived.  You made your way into the living room taking in everyone’s faces, trying to see if there was anyone you recognised.  There was one, and you had mixed feelings on seeing him here.  You quickly moved to the garden for some air.  “Why is he here? When did he come back?  This honestly can’t be happening.”  All these thoughts ran through your head.  You knew you should be excited to see Shawn home, but not like this.  He knew about your past and you did not want him to see you and feel disappointed. You sat down on the only available chair and placed your drink down on the table which was associated in front of you.

You debated what to do, before deciding it was best if you left.  You did not want Shawn to see you.  He thought you had changed and the fact that all it takes is him to leave for tour for you to come back here.  It would just make him feel even worse for leaving you, better yet it would make you feel bad for taking him through this again.  You quickly booked your taxi and began to make your way to the front of the house.  He probably already knew you were here, he was probably thinking of ways to break up with you as we speak.  

These thoughts made you completely numb, a life without having Shawn with you is not one you want to think about.  And even thinking that you could have blew it by just coming to a stupid party made you feel sick.  “Y/N?” Shawn’s voice called from behind you calling you out of your other thinking.  You slowly turned around, silently praying that he would not be there when you had finally turned around.  Maybe the alcohol was playing mind tricks with you?  

You were very wrong, and as you cached a glimpse of Shawn’s face it was not a pleasant sight.  It was as though it was unreadable, and having been with Shawn this long you knew every look his perfectly structured face placed. But this one.  This one you had not had the displeasure of meeting.  “Y/N, what the fuck are you doing here?”  This shocked you, Shawn had rearly ever swore at you.  

“I was just coming to see some friends Shawn” you did not want to be the centre of attention at the party knowing if Shawn was any louder you would be. You turned back around towards the road hoping the taxi would turn up so you were able to continue this away from prying eyes.

There as silence for a few moments you thought Shawn had walked away from you.  That was until you heard a scoff behind you.  “Really Y/N?  Do you think I’m stupid or something?  You are so full of shit.”

This is what finally made you snap, you knew you had done wrong.  You knew Shawn should be upset with you.  But, to continuously undermine you was over the line.  “Shawn, do you not realise that I get it?!  I get that you should be upset, but it’s hard.  It’s hard not having you here for me and I am soooo sorry that me drinking to finally loose the feeling of missing you is that pathetic.  But, we aren’t a normal couple Shawn.  And that means you leave me, alone for months.  This is the only way that I forget how it feels to not have you here.  Not having you hurts Shawn.”  Tears began to fill up in your eyes as everything you had been trying to push away welled up inside you.  Everything was beginning to be too much.  This really was not how you wanted to spend Shawn’s first day back., but nothing ever goes your way it seems.

Your taxi pulled up behind you, which you slowly made your way towards until Shawn grabbed your arm and turned you back around.  You collided with his chest.  “I am so sorry Y/N.  I was being selfish and I did not think about your feelings.  But, baby you don’t need drink to make you feel whole without me. I am always here for you.  Always” Shawn wiped the remaining tears away from your cheeks as you hugged him tight.  Not wanting this to be a bad nightmare.  

As you both collected yourself you made your way home, somewhere that never felt like it without Shawn.  This night was never mentioned again, and you have never looked at alcohol again.  Not even without Shawn in your arms.  

The I.C. was a coordinated product from three agencies; CIA, NSA, and the FBI not all 17 components of the intelligence community. Those three under the aegis of my former office. Following an extensive intelligence reporting about many Russian efforts to collect on and influence the outcome of the presidential election, President Obama asked us to do this in early December and have it completed before the end of his term.

The two dozen or so analysts for this task were hand-picked, seasoned experts from each of the contributing agencies. They were given complete, unfettered mutual access to all sensitive raw intelligence data, and importantly, complete independence to reach their findings. They found that the Russian government pursued a multifaceted influence campaign in the run-up to the election, including aggressive use of cyber capabilities.

The Russians used cyber operations against both political parties, including hacking into servers used by the Democratic National Committee and releasing stolen data to WikiLeaks and other media outlets. Russia also collected on certain Republican Party- affiliated targets, but did not release any Republican-related data. The Intelligence Community Assessment concluded first that President Putin directed and influenced campaign to erode the faith and confidence of the American people in our presidential election process. Second, that he did so to demean Secretary Clinton, and third, that he sought to advantage Mr. Trump. These conclusions were reached based on the richness of the information gathered and analyzed and were thoroughly vetted and then approved by the directors of the three agencies and me.

Character switch Au I think it's called? Where two or more charters trade places in the story line. (My English is awful, I hope at least made a little seance.)

Project G, the first project, was deemed a success. Hojo was unhappy with that, but Hollander proved himself to be…inadequate as head of the science department. Hojo took it over. His own specimen Sephiroth was healthy and viable, but ShinRa only wanted one. Since Genesis worked out, Sephiroth was put up for adoption. Hojo made it a closed adoption, and considered the matter over with. 

Genesis seemed to flourish physically as the Project G and SOLDIER Project specimen. Mentally, however, he had a horrid temper at the best of times. He was a being of destruction at the worst. Hojo eventually had to give the child a creative outlet and Genesis collected quite a bit of poetry and books to amuse himself. Sometimes he wrote a little himself, but usually tossed it away. Hojo never read them. Genesis seemed to like the idea of being a hero and it helped with his behavior when he was reminded of the ideal. 

Sephiroth was always a quiet child. He never would make friends easily in Banora. A lot of the locals thought he was strange, but kind. Spoiled, but also capable of being generous. Angeal Hewley befriended him anyway. They never talked about their class differences, that Angeal’s family struggled to provide while Sephiroth seemed to get what he wanted all the time. Nevertheless, Angeal often wandered home with things he needed after briefly mentioning it in Sephiroth’s presence. 

Sephiroth always suspected his parents were…disappointed in him. That they wanted someone more boisterous or a natural leader. That was probably why he ran off to join the military with Angeal. He didn’t expect to excel there. He and Angeal were fast risers, well-liked among their peers, and great fighters. They soon ranked as high as the Great Genesis in status. Genesis didn’t know what that meant. He snapped once at Sephiroth…and blinked when Angeal came straight to Sephiroth’s defence. Despite a rough start, the three of them did become good friends, though Genesis was always a bit jealous of how close Angeal and Sephiroth already were. 

Hojo didn’t know who Sephiroth was at first. It was after some testing that some matches came up. He realized these Hewley and Rhapsodos boys were the discarded specimens from the J Project days. They had come back after all this time after all. He watched them for a while, Sephiroth a little more. It was an odd feeling, knowing one of them was probably his biological son. Still…the scientist in him was curious. How would these boys react to the mixture Genesis got nowadays. 

It wouldn’t hurt…right?
