the road to heaven


Taipei, home to 2.7 million people and the capital of Taiwan, has a rather large bicycle secret hidden among the tight streets and winding alleyways. It can be best described as an unbelievable, jaw dropping treasure trove. The private collection of Asahi Chang contains more than 600 professional track and road bikes. It is the largest of it’s kind in the world, unavailable for public viewing. The location is a very well kept secret. We were lucky enough to have a peek inside the collection that has been nick named, “单车书房” - Bicycle Heaven.

So unless it’s got a dirt road, leading down to a fishing hole,
With a little piece of moonlight, a couple cans of Bud Light.
Where I can cuddle with my baby and I can pull her real close
I don’t wanna go unless heaven’s got a dirt road.

Raphael Santiago x Reader | Haven

summary; : the reader is Raphael’s haven; a specific shadowhunter finds that out.

words ; 1202

pairing ; reader x raphael Santiago ; platonic!jace x raphael


“ Where do you think you’re going ?” an angry voice yelled the second Raphael stepped outside of the hotel DuMort.

“ I’m having a night walk, got a problem with that?” he hissed at the blonde shadowhunter that stood behind him.

“ Actually, yes. You can’t leave the hotel, remember ? Until the whole Camille problem is solved. ”

The vampire frowned , before he showed his fangs.

“ You don’t get to tell me what to do, shadowhunter. ”

“ Oh, but I do. ” he said grabbing his seraph blade

“ Don’t get too cocky, Wayland. ” the brunette smirked

Before Jace, the shadowhunter, could’ve attacked , ten more vampires jumped on him, knocking him out.

“ You don’t get to drink one drop of his blood , you understand ?!” Raphael shouted; the others lowered their heads, going back inside of the hotel.

Before continuing his way, Raphael dragged Jace to his apartment, to make sure he won’t be the meal for someone.

“ At least I didn’t leave him out there.” he sighed, before closing the door.

Raphael continued his way, to the only place that felt like true home for him. He put his hands in the jacket’s pockets and he hurried to the destination; he didn’t mind to look around, he had the route clearly in his mind; even if it has been some time, he won’t forget the road the lead to his personal heaven if that was even possible, considering he was
nothing more but a demon.

(Y/N) was trying to fall asleep, when she heard a click coming from her window; the girl didn’t bother to go check, she knew it was only one person that would come into her house , through her window, in the middle if the night.

She smiled as she heard Raphael taking off his shoes and jacket; he always made her happy, even since they’ve met - about 10 years ago, in the Pandemonium club; she got herself so drunk that couldn’t make it home, not until her knight showed up; Raphael, despite everything he was thought since he was turned into a vampire, he still helped the girl, if he wouldn’t have , she could’ve been dead by now.

Despite his vampire instincts he never bite her, instead they’ve become friends. Weird friends that only saw each other at night, but (Y/N) never questioned him about his weird behavior. He was glad,knowing that even if she couldn’t understand him , she still accepted him anyway; rare for a ‘mundane’ to do so.

“ You’re awake ?” he murmured while getting under the blanket, hugging the girl from behind.

“ No. ” she replied, turning to face him.

Hola, hermosa.

” Hi, Raph. “ she smiled

” I’ve missed you. “

” Of course you did, mi rey . “ she giggled ” I’ve missed you too. “

” No hay nada mejor que un abrazo de un ser querido para relajarte. “

(Y/N) smiled, putting her arms around his neck; she knew he had a lot of problems in his life, or at least that’s what she thought from all the vague stories Raphael told her; he tried his best to inform her about his life, but he omitted some things, like being a vampire and fighting demons or shadowhunters .

” Rough day?“ she asked at some point

” Mhmm.“ he sighed

(Y/N) moved her head closer to his, placing a gentle kiss on his cold cheek.

” It’s all better now, since I’m with you, mi cielito.

” You’re such a romantic. “

” Only when it comes to you. “

She wrapped her arms tighter around him; he was the only person able to make her stomach full of butterflies.

” (Y/N) ? “

” Hm?“

” I know that you might have a lot of questions about me - my behavior. “

” Stop. “

” What?“ he looked confused into her eyes

” You’ll tell me when you want to; you have a rough life, cariño. I don’t wan to push you into telling me what’s going on. I can wait. “ she smiled

” You’re my heaven, (Y/N). “

The girl smiled sweetly before reaching for his lips; he pulled in gently, kissing her for a few seconds.

” I love you too, Raphael. “

Even if he never said exactly those three words , (Y/N) understood him enough, to know exactly what he meant every time he looked at her with those "love-sick-puppy-eyes”.

Slowly the girl fell asleep in his arms; he smiled; thinking he would love to stay with her like this for an eternity.

However, the moment was ruined when Raphael smelled angel blood; carefully he let the girl in the bed, without waking her and he looked out the window, seeing a confused Jace waiting for him to get out.

Raphael sighed as he turned to look at his own angel who was sleeping peacefully; he wrapped the blanket around her small body then he exited the room the same way he entered - using the window.

“ What do you want, shadowhunter ? I didn’t let you knocked out surrounded by thirsty vampires. You should be thankful. ” he said passing by the blonde guy

Jace narrowed his eyebrows.

“ Thanks. ” he said sarcastically

“ Now , tell me, vampire, what were you doing in that house? I saw you. Who is she ?” he spitted out angrily

“ None of your business. ”

“ You either tell me or I’ll tell the Clave you work with Camille. ”

“ You’re a real pain in my ass, aren’t you?” he hissed

Jace just rolled his eyes and crossed his arms to his chest.

“ So?”

“ She’s my friend. ”

“ She’s a mundane. ” Jace questioned
“ While you’re a blood-sucking demon, remember?”

“ Back off, Wayland. ” Raphael hissed

“ What’s that? That little spark in your black eyes? Love ?” the shadowhunter said amused

“ Shut up! ”

Jace was shocked by his reply, most of the times Raphael had a sassy line or something , but this time it seemed like he was defending himself.

“ Oh my god.” Jace gasped “ It is love.” he said placing a hand over his, now wide open, mouth.

“ You’re that shocked?” Raphael gesticulated

“ I never thought I’d see you in love with anyone except yourself. ”

Raphael’s anger faded away slowly;
whispering he said “ there’s a lot you don’t know about me, idiota . ”

“ For how long you know her?”

“ Ten years, I assume. Now, look at me shadowhunter, she’s the only person that keeps me going, you tell someone about her I hurt you; no one knows about her , just like how she doesn’t know about this damn shadow world, got it? ”

“ She appears to be your weakness. ”

Raphael scoffed, laughing he showed his fangs.

“ No, dear. I’m not you. The woman I love it is not my weakness she’s my heaven ; trust me when I say I’ll do anything for her. So, -” Raphael paused for a second before he continued, spelling each word slowly “ Stay. The. Hell. Away. From. Her. ”

And with that being said the vampire vanished , since the sun was almost up.

Jace looked at the place where the downworlder used to be and laughed.

“ I guess even demons have their own heavens. ”

Klaus Mikaelson | Imagine

A/N: Combining two requests because they were similar. Change of perspectives because I tried something. 

Content: Reader had some feelings for Klaus while he was in Mystic Falls but because being in a relationship, they never admitted. 5 years later, (Y/N), a witch, needs the Mikaelsons’ help.

Warnings: none 

It has been years of silence since the last incident. Many people put their lifes on the line and eventually lost it. So many fights, so many tears. 

Odd, (Y/N) thought as you walked down the streets of Mystic Falls. This town was probably cursed from its very beginning, but after he had left, everything turned upside down completely. 

A smile crept its way on the young female’s face as her thoughts wandered to the time half a decade ago. 

“(Y/N)”, a voice reached the witches ears which automatically lead to an eyeroll. She walked past him, without giving more reaction and went straight for the counter.

“Matt, I’m starving.” You declared simply with a pout. You were sure the kitchen was closed since it was late but you tried anyways. “You’re fifteen minutes too late, (Y/N).” “Enough time to turn a blind eye?” You asked with a charming smile.

He scolded you further, not taking any compelling. “Sorry.” He poured some liquid in some glasses while speaking. “Why are you late this time?” You groaned and sighed in resignation. You’ve lost. 

“I had business to do. I-” You two were interrupted, when another person sat next to you. 

“What an awful service”, he almost immediately stated, “when a charming girl like you asks for a dinner, she should get a three-courses menu, don’t you think?” You tried to ignore the original vampire next to you, but his stare seemed to burn your skin, looking right through you.

When your gaze met his, you saw it for the first time. A genuine, but cheeky smile and for a brief moment, you forget that he had a short temper and murderous tendencies. 

“How about dinner somewhere else, love?”
