Imagine: Eric and Four push you to your limits during initiation because they see your potential, your strength impresses Eric and he develops a lot of respect for you along with a small crush.

“Let’s go Y/L/N! Get your ass off the mat!” You hear Eric yell, your vision is blurred with sweat and blood, but you push yourself off the mat once again and face the monster of a boy that you’re fighting against. You take a deep breath and analyze your options while dodging yet another punch. Okay Y/N, Josh may be twice your size, but you’re a lot faster, what’s his weakness? Think Y/N, think! It finally hits you, you can’t aim for his stomach, he has it covered at all times, you can’t aim for his head because it’s too obvious, but you can aim for his neck. You kick him in the shin to act as a distraction, you take advantage of the split second that you have and you strike him on the side of the neck. You hit the perfect nerve and he’s instantly on the ground, out cold, “And we’re finished, get him to the infirmary, and you, Y/L/N, get yourself cleaned up.”

“Can I go to the infirmary Eric? This gash feels pretty deep,” You ask your trainer, pointing to your forehead.

“Man up initiate, there’s still a lot to do today, I can’t have all my initiates leaving in the middle of training!” This wasn’t the first time that Eric was pushing you harder than the rest of the initiates. No, every single training session was like this, Four and Eric were constantly on your case, ‘You can do better than that Y/L/N!’ or ‘You call that a throw?’ or, your personal favourite, ‘You’re the reason the saying, “You hit like a girl” exists!’. It was as if you were never good enough for them, you were the top of your year, yet they treated every other initiate better than you. You on the other hand weren’t one to back out of something, if they were going to try and break you, you wouldn’t let them.

“Earth to Y/N!” You quickly blink, snapping back to reality as your close friend, Jacob, waves his hand in front of your face, “You might want to get back to the punching bags, Eric is shooting daggers at you with his eyes.”

You look over your shoulder, “Yeah, yeah, whatever.”

“Why does he hate you so much?”

“I honestly have no idea,” You groan.

“Y/L/N! You’re not here to have a nice little chat, get back to training,” Four yells at you from the other side of the room. Without an argument, you go to the punching bags, and even though every muscle in your body is screaming at you in agony, you begin relentlessly throwing punches. Your surroundings disappear, it’s just you and this imaginary enemy in front of you, you attack it with every ounce of your strength.

“Y/N? Y/N!” The voice brings you out of your violent daze, and you see Four and Eric standing on either side of you.

“What are you still doing here initiate?” Eric asks, “Class was dismissed an hour ago.”

“Eric and I came back to discuss ranks and we saw you in here like this,” Four gestures up and down your body.

“I-I just lost track of time,” Your tiredness finally hits you, and you feel like you might throw up.

“Have you been punching that bag ever since we left?” Four asks, his voice is laced with worry.

“Um, I think so,” You honestly felt just as confused as the two instructors looked.

“You look extremely pale Y/L/N, get back to the dorms. Besides you’ll have to be up early tomorrow,” Eric says.

“I-yeah, I think you’re right,” You drawl, exhaustion fill every inch of your body, you can feel the corners of your vision getting darker but you ignore it and walk towards the door. Before you know what’s happening, you feel yourself fall, and everything goes dark.

Eric’s POV

I turn towards the papers that Four has spread out in front of him, suddenly we hear a thud, I look up and see Y/N on the ground, “Shit!”

Four and I rush up to her, attempting to shake her awake, but her eyes stayed shut, Four calls her name but she still doesn’t respond. Y/N was strong, the strongest in the batch of initiates, probably the strongest I’ve seen since I joined the faction, which is why we always pushed her so hard. We knew she could take it and we wanted to bring out the best in her, but maybe this time we may have gone too far, “You finish with the paperwork Four, I’ll take her to the infirmary.”

He nods at me, as I lift her into my arms and carry her to the infirmary, she asked me to let her go to the infirmary earlier, she never accepts defeat, she must have been really hurt, I should have let her go, I was so stupid! What was I thinking?!


I visit the infirmary the next morning before training and the nurse informs me that Y/N still isn’t awake, but she should be okay.

I make my way to the training room and begin the day as usual, my thoughts constantly wandering back to her.

“Any news on Y/N?” Four asks, coming up from behind me.

“She’s still unconscious, nurse says that she worked herself too hard, she should be alright though,” I say nonchalantly. There aren’t many people who are able to gain my respect in such a short period of time, but somehow Y/N did, she’s truly born to be a Dauntless.

“What did I miss?” A familiar, cheery voice snaps me out of my trance.

“Y/N?” Four calls out before I turn around, “What are you doing here?!”

“The nurse said I was okay to leave,” She shrugs.

“You shouldn’t be here Y/N, you should have just gone back to the dorms,” I say to her.

“I can’t afford to miss a training session,” This girl is truly crazy, and frankly, I really like it.

“Well if that’s wha-”

“No Eric, she needs to get some rest.”

“Four, she can do whatever the hell she wants. If she feels alright enough to train then let her train,” I say.

“Thank you Eric!” She says clapping me on the shoulder before walking towards the bags.

She sure is something special, I catch myself slightly smiling, but I quickly wipe it away, this girl better become a leader after initiation.

No More Hiding - Four Imagine

Fandom: Divergent

Pairing: Four x Reader


I wake up early in the morning so I can set up all the things that are needed for today’s initiation training. I decide to wear black shorts, crop top, leather jacket and black converse. After my daily routine I exit my room and head towards the training room. I put the knives on the table, take the gloves out for boxers and did something more before the initiates came with Four and Eric. 

“Good morning Y/N.” Four smiles and I resist the urge to run to him and kiss him. You see, Four is my secret boyfriend of three months and I wish so badly that we don’t have to hide our relationship, but we do because of my brother. My brother is one and only Eric. I’m the leader just like him and I’m well respected among everyone, I’m not as strict as Eric is but I do ask hard work from everyone.

“Morning sis.” Eric says shooting me a smile. I’m the only person he smiles at or laugh or anything. 

“Good morning Four, Eric and good morning initiates. I hope you slept well because today you are going to work hard. The end of this stage is slowly approaching so you must work harder than ever.” I raise my voice a little and everyone listens to me, “Now start your warm ups, you have 15 minutes.” 

“You know sometimes even I am scared of the tone of your voice.” Four grins when I came to stand next to him. I grin back and look at the initiates.

“They have nothing to worry about as long as they are doing what I tell them. If they respect what we say I’ll even defend them from Eric.” I say and Four nods.

“You know that’s actually why they love you. You are brave and strong enough to show them what to do and not just talk, you push them to work harder because that’s the only way they will make it out here and you stand up for them.” My boyfriend says and I smile.

“That’s also why you love me.” I whisper adding a wink at the end and he smirks.

————

“Alright. Peter and Tris on the mat.” I yell and they step up. 

“You really think she can take him?” Eric asks me standing next to me.

“She can try.” I say crossing my arms. I put Tris with Peter because I believe she can beat him, because I see potential in her and I want to show her that she has it in herself, she just needs to let it out.

“She’s weak.” Eric says and I glare at him.

“No she’s not.” I hiss and he turns to look at the mat, me doing the same. They start fighting after I signaled. For now Tris is loosing, she’s not paying attention on Peter’s moves and his weaknesses. Then Peter hits Tris right in the head and she looses balance falling down, hitting her head on the mat again. She’s unconscious but Peter keeps kicking her.

“Stop! STOP!” I yell and he turns around to look at me, along with everyone else, “What the fuck do you think you are doing?” I kneel next to Tris quickly, feeling her pulse. 

“Take her to the hospital now.” I say to the first person I saw and he does as I told him. I get up and look at Peter angrily.

“Y/N..” Eric tries to say something obviously seeing my anger but I cut him off.

“You think you are so strong now do you? You think you are our favorite because you are at the top? You think killing someone who’s on the training is your mission?” I yell at Peter and he winces.

“Eric said we need to go till the end.” He says and I take my jacket off throwing it on the floor.

“Well maybe you need someone to teach you a lesson, till the end. You’re fighting me now.” I take the position and he hesitantly does the same, seeing that there’s no exit from here.

“Y/N maybe this is not such a good idea. Just come down and we’ll give him some sort of punishment.” I hear Four and I look at him.

“The only punishment he can get is this.” I say looking from Four to my brother as they stand next to each other.

“Then I’ll fight him. Just come down.” My boyfriend says and I know he doesn’t want me to get hurt. Both of us know that Peter is strong, but I am too. I see my brother give Four a strange look but I just shrug it off.

“Eric signal.” I say and Four sighs. Eric signals us and we start fighting.

Peter throws a punch and I duck hitting him in the stomach. He steps back and I attack him, he hardly blocks my punches before he grabs my arm and twist it. I grit my teeth and kick him in the knee with my leg. The next thing I know is that he’s lying down, face in the mat, me holding his arms behind his back.

“I saw it in your eyes that you thought you could beat me. You can’t and you’ll never be able to. I didn’t even used my best moves on you. So you better watch what you are doing in the future.” I say letting him go and jumping down from the mat. I pick up my jacket as everyone claps and I exit the training room. 

“Alright, the next pair…” I hear Eric shouts before I exit and then I hear footsteps running after me.

“I’m fine Four.” I say turning the corner to the hospital.

“Let me see your knee.” He says and I sigh.

“Seriously, I’m fine. I’m headed to the hospital so I can see Tris.” Right after I said this Four pinned to the wall and I hiss.

“Don’t move.” He says and looks down at my knee, “You need to clean this. You’re still bleeding.” 

“It’s just a scratch. It’s not my first nor my last.” I try to leave but a muscular arm stops me.

“You could’ve seriously gotten hurt.” He says and I look up at him, my eyes softening.

“But I didn’t right? I know you are worried about me but you need to understand that I can take care of myself. Also don’t forget who was on the top of our class.” I joke and he grins. Four wraps his arms around my waist gently and I lean into him.

“I just love you way too much to see you getting hurt. I would literally do anything for you and it kills me that I can’t show everyone that you are mine and that I can’t protect you as mush as I would like to. Every time one of them look at you the wrong way I just want to show them to who you belong to, especially when you wear shorts like these.” He says quietly, slipping his hand down my back at the end and I smile wrapping my arms around his neck.

“I’m all yours and you know it. You’re the one I love.” I say leaning my forehead on his. Four closes the gap between us and we share a passionate kiss. 

“WHAT THE HELL?!” We jump away from each other as we hear a way too familiar voice of my brother.

“Eric I..we..” I want to say something but I just can’t find any words.

“What do you think you are doing with my sister?” He points his finger at Four angrily approaching.

“Eric calm down..” I try to tell him something but there’s no point.

“You shut up, you’ve done enough.” He says and I grit my teeth.

“Don’t talk to her like that.” Four defends me and Eric looks back at him. Instead of saying something he hits my boyfriend.

“Eric!” I yell immediately running to get him off of Four, “Let him go!” I yell again but they keep fighting. I stand in between them and take a punch in the face from Eric that was meant to hit Four. I fall down on the ground and hear both of them shout my name. I put a hand on my nose and feel blood. I look up at Eric furiously, not because he hit me but because of attacking Four, I slowly stand up denying Four’s help.

“Y/N are you alright?” Four asks me worriedly but my eyes are set on Eric.

“I don’t give a damn about what you think of Four and me dating. We are together for three months and I love him with my whole heart. There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for him, he makes me happy and he’s always there for me. I know he will protect me from anything and that he will always take care of me. I’m always going to be there for him because I love him, and nothing and no one is going to change that, you hear me? You can accept our relationship and be happy for me, or not. Your choice.” I say wiping blood from my nose. Eric looks at me shocked and I wait for his answer.

“Alright. I’m sorry. I’ll try to be happy for you.” My brother sighs and I smile a little, “But you better take care of her.” He tells Four and I look at him.

“Always.” He replies simply and I hug him.

“Thanks Eric.” I say and he nods turning to leave. I look up at Four with a smile and he smiles back.

“And Y/N..” Eric stops and I look at him again, “I’m sorry for punching you, you know I would never do that on purpose.” 

“I know, it’s alright.” I say and he leaves.

“I love you so much.” Four says and I stand on my tip toes to kiss him.

“I love you too, and I’m really happy we don’t have to hide anymore.” I say, my eyes sparkling with happiness.

“Me too my love, but I think we should get you to hospital, you’re still bleeding.” He says and I laugh. I even forgot about my broken nose.

“Let’s go.” I say taking his hand in mine.

Request: Here again😂 Can you write one that Eric because likes you he spies you and goes wherever you go and come with you in every patrol and tried tell you that he wants be his girlfriend?! (Sorry for my English)

A/N: I want to thank @book-boys-are-my-guilty-pleasure​ for helping me write this.


“Alright initiates! You’re dismissed for today!” I say.

The initiates all file out of the room, leaving me alone with Eric. He walked in to observe my training right after class started today. Being a leader, it’s his job, and I completely understand that, but I don’t understand why he has to observe me every single day. It’s a little suspicious if you ask me. I don’t question it though, I’m sure Eric has his reasons.

“Okay, Eric. I’m gonna go back to my apartment. See you tomorrow.” I tell him, while grabbing my stuff.

“Night, Y/N.” He responds.

The next day, Eric came in to watch me train. And he came the day after that. And now, we’re on the train, heading down to the pier to play capture the flag, and can you guess what? Eric’s here.

This is really starting to drive me insane. I’ve had a word with Max about it, and he agreed with me about the fact that Eric shouldn’t be coming in every day. Still, I hadn’t confronted Eric about it. I was considering it though.

“Initiates! Gather round!” I yell over their talking and the loud sound of the wind from outside the train.

I continue to explain the rules of the game and what the objective is. Then, we proceed to pick teams, with Eric and I as the team leaders.

When we reached the pier, my team jumped off first. I started to run to the place where my team from last year went. I was an initiate then, in Four’s class. He would be helping me train, but he wanted to take this year off for some reason. So that left me in charge of the 16 year olds.

Anyway, we ran towards the carousal, and gathered into a circle.

“Alright, I want to hear ideas people. You are the ones that are gonna come up with the plan not me. This is the one time where you get to boss me around. Unless I think that your plan is going to fail, then, then I will help.” I say.

“We could hide it in a tree. Then we could have some people guard it while the rest of the team goes out and scout for the other team’s flag.” One says.

“A tree is not a very good place to hide the flag. The rest of the plan sounds good. We should hide it in that abandoned building over there.” Another says, pointing to a structure that looks very unstable.

I was looking around, making sure that nobody was going to come out and ambush us. All of a sudden, I see movement in the distance. It wasn’t very close, so that’s good. If it’s somebody from Eric’s team, they might not know that we’re here yet. But I still wanted to go check it out.

“Hey guys, I’m gonna go do some scouting. It’s up to you guys to hide this flag. I’m counting on you.” I say.

“But you said that this was the one time that we can boss you around. You going to scout isn’t part of the plan yet.” One of them tells me.

“I know what I said. I saw movement and I want to go check it out. Besides, you guys done even have a plan.”

I ran over to the ferris wheel, and ducked down. Peering around the side of one of the compartments, I didn’t see anything. Suspicious, I stand up, and stealthily jog into one of the buildings. It has stairs, thank goodness. Now I could get I higher view of the pier.

Climbing up the stairs, I hear footsteps following me. I spin around and point my gun at the person. I’m about to shoot, but then I see who the person is. Can you guess who it is? That’s right! It’s Eric!

“What are you doing?!” I whisper yell.

“What am I doing? What are you doing?” He whisper yells back at me.

“I’m trying to get a better view of the pier. Shouldn’t you be with your team?” I ask.

“I could ask you the same question.”

I stare at him for just a moment. I’m getting very frustrated because I can’t seem to figure out why he is almost always around me.

I decide to Dauntless up and ask. “Why are you always following me?”

“I don’t ever follow you.”

“You know what I mean. You come in every day to watch me train the initiates, you’re always near me when I’m at a party, and now, your following me while we’re playing capture the flag. Why?”

He hesitates for a moment. I can see it in his eyes that he’s debating on whether or not to tell me. He keeps opening and closing his mouth, trying to find the right words to say.

“I just want to make sure that you’ll be safe.” He finally says,

“I can take care of myself.”

“I’m fully aware of that. But it makes me feel better when I see that you’re safe.”

“Why do you even care?”

“I don’t want anything to happen to you. I don’t know why.  I just can’t stand the thought of you getting hurt.” He looks down as if embarrassed.

“Well, I appreciate that. I really do. But all I do is train initiates and go to parties. And I only go to parties maybe three times a month. This is the most dangerous thing that I have done since initiation.” I laugh.

He lets out a little chuckle. “Yeah. You’re right.”

“So will you please stop watching out for me?”

“Absolutely not. I mean, I’ll let you have more space, but that doesn’t meant that I’m going to completely stop checking on you.”

“Fine.” I say.” Now. Back to business. You are going down. Just like my team beat you last year.”

So this is reverb 2.5 for 2016, a SoMa Star Trek AU inspired by the adorable art of @chaoticlivi.

Thanks go to @bendandcurl, @therewithasmile, @ilarual, and my awesome artist partner livi again for being clutch with the betaing and helping make this so much better.

Summary:  Maka Albarn and Soul Evans, recent graduates from Starfleet Academy, have both been assigned to the new flagship Resonance. Expecting to learn the ropes, they get more than they bargained for when the terrorist group Arachnophobia targets the ship on its maiden voyage. As everything falls apart around them, can two rookies really make a difference?

Word Count: 12K

Pairings: Soul x Maka

Read on FFN or AO3.

Art by @chaoticlivi can be found here.



She feels nervous, which is both strange and undeniable. Why should she be nervous? Taking a shuttle craft is nothing new–she had toured the ship months ago as it was being worked on–she’s about to be reunited with her closest friend. That part gives her butterflies, though, fluttering wildly in her middle like she’s ten again and watching her mama go off on yet another mission, which is just silly. She’s a fully vested member of Starfleet now, top of her class out of the academy, assistant to the Chief Tactical Officer of the new fleet flagship Resonance. She is Ensign Maka Albarn and she does not get butterflies.

Except today, apparently, she does.

And why, because of Soul? Soul of all people? Soul, who she’s known since they started together at the academy years ago? Soul, who she had loathed for months on sheer principle before getting stuck as his partner? Soul, who had managed to worm his way underneath her unrelenting drive to become her closest friend? Soul, who she knows better than she knows herself? Soul, who she has missed like a phantom limb these past months, desperately and achingly?

Soul.

Such questions do nothing to quell the rampant butterflies.

The characteristic clang and jolt of the craft docking pulls Maka from her thoughts. As she collects herself to disembark, she idly wonders how long it will take to see the Concensio. It is a question as silly as her increasing butterflies; Maka might have known that she would see an unmistakable mop of white amidst the crowd, might have predicted the wide grin he quickly, futilely tries to stifle.

She throws herself into his arms before she even knows she means to, protocol be damned, basking in his warmth as he returns the hug.

Imagine: Eric surprising you on Valentine’s Day!

You and Eric had been dating for 6 month now, and tomorrow was your first Valentine’s Day together, but of course, Eric wasn’t having it. You sat across from him in the cafeteria and he just kept rolling his eyes and groaning at the cute couples who surrounded you, “Fuck this shit, why is this even a holiday, all this lovie dovie crap makes me want to puke.”

You let out a fake giggle, in reality it kind of hurt that Eric would never treat you like all the other guys treat their girlfriends on holidays like this; he just wasn’t the type of person to do so. You unintentionally let out a sigh and Eric looks up at you, “Is everything okay Y/N? You look kind of upset.”

“It’s nothing, I’m just tired,” Of course I’m upset you idiot!

“Alright then let’s go back to the apartment,” You nod at him and the two of you walk to your shared apartment.


Eric left for work a little early that morning, so you joined your friends,Tris, Christina, and Will, for breakfast. Soon enough, Will and Christina’s Valentine’s Day cuteness became too much for you to handle, and you tried to start up a conversation with Tris, but that didn’t last very long either, because Four showed up behind her with a bouquet of roses. Great, what’s next, is everybody gonna start slow dancing in the cafeteria now?

You watched them for another minute or two, hoping that Four would leave or that Christina and Will would stop devouring each other and focus on their food instead, but when that didn’t happen, you just got up and left. You went to work early that day, you worked in the control room alongside Uriah and his brother Zeke. As you walk in Zeke asks, “Was the scene in the cafeteria too much for you to handle?”

You roll your eyes and sit down next to Uriah who says, “You’re just jealous that Eric didn’t bring you roses.”

“Way to add salt to the wound Uri,” You gently punch him in the shoulder, you knows he’s only kidding but it hurts because it’s true.

“It’s okay Y/N, at least you can get a boyfriend, unlike Uri over here,” Zeke laughs and you smile at him.

That day goes by slowly, the screens constantly showing footage of people making out on the streets or in the hallways, you feel sick by the end of it.

You look at the clock, 8:00pm; you should probably get going now. You say goodbye to Zeke and Uriah, and leave the control room, walking back to your apartment.

When you open the door, you see that the lights are dim. What the hell? You look down and see rose petals scattered all over the floor making a trail towards the dining room. Did Eric actually do this? You follow the rose petals and walk into the dining room, you see Eric standing by the table wearing a black button up shirt and black jeans. Damn he cleans up nice. He walks up to you and hands you a single rose.

“Happy Valentine’s Day Y/N,” He says gently.

“I thought you hated Valentine’s Day?” You say, not being able to wipe the stupid grin off your face.

“I might hate Valentine’s, but I do love you. I saw how upset you looked yesterday when I was talking about how much I hate it, so I thought I’d surprise you.” He smiles.

You hug him, “Thank you Eric. I love you too!”

“Now let’s eat dinner,” Eric says pulling a chair out for you.

“Damn Eric, did you make this?” You gush.

“Yeah I did, I took a cooking class back in Erudite,” The two of you talk and eat until you’re stuffed.

You both get up and take the dishes to the counter and he smirks at you, “Now, let’s take this to the bedroom.”

You roll your eyes and he winks, picking you up bridal style and carrying you away.

A/N: I’ll leave the rest to your imagination ;) Anyways I know this is a day after Valentine’s but I got this request this morning. I decided to do this before the other pending requests I have because I didn’t want the Valentine’s Day imagine to be like 10 days late. Ilysm
