they hated each other apparently

Submitted by @ lord-of-the-dark-realms 


So, I had this thought after reading several stories about humans giving birth and not having eggs.  What if aliens do not have ‘family units’ the same way humans do, but instead raise children in more of a group setting.


Captain H'roll'ah was excited to have hired on not just 1 but 3 humans, all of whom were extremely qualified for space travel.  Even better, they were all from the same clan and so there would be no rivalry or refusal to work together because of old scores to settle.

“Captain! Three humans just came in a have taken over the dining area! WHAT SHOULD WE DO?!?” Ensign Khralhen was out of breath and panicked, but his species was notoriously afraid of humans after it became public knowledge how dangerous they were.  Not that his own was much better, but H'roll'ah knew that these humans should be here and it was probably near a meal time for them.  How could such an evolutionary advanced and apated species not figure out a way to avoid needing 3 or meals a day was beyond H'roll'ah.

“It is fine, Ensign Khralhen.  These are likely the Humans that I just signed on to the crew.  They are from the same clan, so they should work at peak efficiency,” the Captain answered, trying to put as much calm and soothing into his voice as possible, “Let us go introduce ourselves and welcome them so that the ‘pack-bonding’ can begin.”


“Greetings, I am Captain H'roll'ah and this is Ensign Khralhen, our cook.”

“Nice ta meetcha! Cook, huh? Guess we best buddy up to you right quick then!” said the male.  He was average height for a human and perhaps a little on the heavy side, but H'roll'ah knew that it was likely muscle not fat.  After all, this human and one of his female companions were security personnel.

“Always thinking with you stomach, Thomas.  How about you buddy up to the Captain, so that we do not get kicked off this boat? Hmm?” said the smaller female, later identified as Samantha or “Sam” for ease.  "Small" being used only in comparison because she did not have the bulk of her clanmates.  She must be the medical officer.  H'roll'ah was worried that she would be distant from her clanmates but her body language suggested extreme comfort and trust, above what H'roll'ah felt for his own clanmates of different castes.  The third human, Laura if the captain remembered correctly, remained silent but was constantly looking around, as if expecting an attack at any moment, not that strange considering all that H'roll'ah had hear about Earth.

“Well then, please tell me what times that the three of you eat, and I will prepare food for you then.  Also, please tell me any dietary restrictions you have so that you do not have any medical incidents,” Khralhen said, realizing that the humans could be bribed with food as easily as a Con'valix could be bribed with fruits.


(3 Months Later)

Captain H'roll'ah was surprised at how well the humans worked together.  He thought that they might exceed standard human operating efficiency by 10%, but regularly they were 20-25% better than the reported average.  They barely needed to vocalize to communicate, and they were able to remember each other’s needs and the needs of the crew extremely well.  Captain H'roll'ah decided to ask them how they did it, and if it was a clan trait, where he could hire more humans of clan “Walker.”

“Thomas clan Walker, do you have a few minutes to talk about personal matters?” The captain asked, assuming that Thomas would, since he was off shift and relaxing in the lounge.

“Sure thing, hoss.  What can I do for you?  And I hope this isn’t about my or Laura’s tattoo’s, because we had to settle a bet on that a few days ago,” Thomas answered easily.  He was a bit flippant for the captain’s taste, but his results were impeccable and the other humans followed his lead, which spoke volumes for the man.  

“I was hoping that you could explain how you and your clanmates have achieved such a high efficiency rate.  You perform well above average, even for clanmates who grew up together.”

“Clanmates? Oh, that’s right! Sam mentioned that your species, and most species on this ship raise their young in a group setting and the kids hatch from eggs, right?”

“That is correct, and please do not remind me that human females carry their young in their bodies like a parasite.  The last time Sam explained that, it was enough to make all of us wonder how humans have managed to reproduce at all.” H'roll'ah still shuddered when he thought of it, and Khralhen wasn’t able to cook for 3 days after Sam had explained human reproduction.

“Fair enough, I think we reproduce more by accident that anything else, but yeah.  Me, Laura, and Sam are not clanmates like you think,” Thomas chuckled and shook his head, “We are siblings.”

“I do not know this word,” H'roll'ah answered uneasily.  In his experience, an unknown term from a human meant that something painful, gross, horrifying, or all 3 was about to be revealed.

“Sam could explain it better, and having Laura here only seems fair…” Thomas trailed off as he reached for his comm.  "Hey, brats (again with the casual disrespect), can you both get up to the lounge? Captain wants to know about siblings.“ H'roll'ah was always surprised that Thomas clan Walker could be disrespectful when asking for others to do something.

“Sure, be right up,” Sam responded.  She was likely a floor up in the medical facilities and wanted to take a break.

“Grrhhrhhgg.” Laura clan Walker had been sleeping, then, and did not want to come.

“Thanks, ladies, you can both explain family better than me.”  Now the captain was worried again because there was a second new word being bandied around.


“So, captain, a family unit for humans is very small compared to yours of Ensign Khralhen’s,” Sam explained, “A family is usually made up of the mother and/or father or a surrogate who has assumed that role and the children.  It usually numbers no more than 4-7 individuals.”

“But…But…how do you grow or develop? And to place all that burden on only one or two adults, how do they do anything else?” spluttered K'roll'ah.  He was shocked to find out that humans in the region called ‘America’ did not have an open community.

“Well, children who share 1 or both parents are called “siblings”, and they develop together.  The adults are called “parents”, and yeah, there is a definite loss of freedom involved.“

“So then, you three are…siblings?” H'roll'ah asked.

“Yes, Thomas is the oldest, and Laura is the youngest, with me in the middle,” answered Sam, “and our father bailed on us after Laura was 3 years old, so Tom became the ‘man of the house’ at 7 years old.”

THAT explained Thomas clan Walker’s attitude! Captain H'roll'ah realized that Thomas clan Walker had been in a command position and not had a commander from a young age!

“So that is why you both follow him? He is the new leader”

“Kind of, he is just the best at leading.  He knows what to do and does it well.” Laura answered, which was rare; she was the most quiet of the three.

“And the reason for your peak efficiency?” Captain H'roll'ah asked, determined to get an answer to his question.

“Well, we have known each other all our lives and spent most of those lives in close proximity to each other.  We just understand each other from the long familiarity and exposure.”

“Ah, the same way a pilot becomes better from being on the same ship, just with a person instead.”

“Exactly! And if you are interested in hiring others we are familiar with, we have some cousins, children of our parents’ siblings, who we know very well and want to get into space.”

“Then I will look them up, thank you for answering my questions." 

Humans were a strange species.  Instead of focusing on a large community, they developed close bonds with only a few people who share familial ties with them.  Captain H'roll'ah did hire the 'cousins’ and they worked out very well.  The human guidebook was updated to notify captains that humans sharing close blood ties have the potential to perform at higher than normal efficiency.  


Now somebody write a story about a captain hiring siblings who hate/cannot stand each other!

Hey do you have more flirty rivals prompts?

1) “Well.” They stepped closer, trailing their hands down the other’s chest. “They do say you should know your enemies. And, believe me, before this week is out I’m going to learn everything there is to know about you. All your weaknesses, everything that makes you tick, all your sensitive little buttons.” 
“Now, now. You have to at least buy me dinner first. It can be your consolation prize for losing.”

2) “You have to get better, okay?” They kicked the side of the hospital bed. “It’s no fun when I can’t crush you.”
“That nearly sounds like concern.”
“It’s the medication, it’s giving you delusions.”

3) “You’re going down.” 
“On you? Let’s not pretend you could handle that without begging. We’re pretending you have dignity, remember?” 

4) “Anything you can do,” they sang in an annoying voice, “I can do better. I can do anything-” the kiss shut them up. Blanked their brain with the flare of want, of heat spreading through their chest. After a moment, they kissed back eagerly, only for their rival to pull back, teasing. Lips ghosting without satisfaction. “Can you kiss me better than that? Because oh my god the look on your face right now.” 
They pounced.

5) “You know, for people who apparently hate each other, you spend an awful lot of time getting up close and personal.”
“I don’t hate them, I hate losing to them. And everyone know closeness is used to establish physical dominance.”
“Yeah, yeah, sure. And what do the longing looks establish?”

hello hello, i am in desperate need of kyouhaba fic recs and i'm pretty sure i've read all the ones in all the other recs as well as the ones in the first five pages on ao3 when you sort by kudos, so if you could help me out i would be very much obliged

Yo anon! Such a daunting task you’ve requested, lmao. I actually had to think about whether or not to indulge this since 1) I have no idea if you’re serious, tbh, 2) I’m not sure if I’ll be able to link you fics that haven’t already been recommended somewhere else, 3) I have no idea which stories you’ve already read, 4) Like I said, this seems very daunting because there are LOTS of brilliant Kyouhaba fics out there. If I get really serious with this, by the time I’m done the list will look pretty overwhelming, lol.

That said, the request wouldn’t leave my mind and since I have free time now, I guess I’ll do it. I’ll go all the way too and treat this as an extensive Kyouhaba rec list for others (HQ/Kyouhaba beginners especially) who might want it, so take note of that if you see stories you’ve already read.

Btw, I’ll just do a shortcut when it comes to authors with multiple Kyouhaba stories and take you to their main AO3 page instead of linking each of their stories. Believe me, these authors are brilliant and there’s no use sifting through their Kyouhaba stories to see what’s good and what’s not. They’re ALL amazing. 

Btw, I used AO3′s tag filter to take you to their Kyouhaba stories only since that’s what you asked for (and what this blog is for).

Meta: DRRR, Shizaya, and Monstrous Romance

Alright. Shizaya. I should begin this by saying a couple of things: first of all, in the interests of time, much of this will be freeform more than pulling up specific examples from canon or screenshots or quotes or the like. Shizaya is one of my very top OTPs and I’ve spent a lot (possibly too much) time thinking about their dynamic, so a lot of this is built upon conclusions built on conclusions built on conclusions. It’s meta all the way down, folks. Also please note that much of this will be heavily colored by my own perspective here; I’m not trying to be unbiased or objective as much as to ramble for some extended period about my own take on one of my favorite ships. So take several grains of salt with you before we embark on this. It’s also going to be a mess. I’ll try to break it out into more-or-less cohesive sections, but I have a lot to say and I’m not sure even where to start so I’m just going to give it to you all at once. Hopefully it’s more fun than overwhelming.

With that I’ll jump right in!

Mrs. Taylor smiled. “It was great! I paired up all my students for my annual project, and I purposely put a certain pair together, because I just know they’ll become a couple before the semester ends.”

Mr. Taylor sighed. “Honey, you can’t play Cupid with your students.”

“I don’t remember reading that in my contract when I got hired.” Mrs. Taylor grabbed her grade book out of her book bag. “Besides, I didn’t set them up on a blind date. I just paired them up for a project.”

“Of course, just like all your other set ups. Who are the lucky kids this semester?” Mr. Taylor stood next to his wife and looked down at her opened grade book. Her freshly manicured nail pointed at one name.

“Derek Hale,” Mr. Taylor read and followed his wife’s finger to the second name. “And Y/N Y/L/N.”

Swifthaal/Gyllenswift Timeline 2010

Following the modifications of the Buzzfeed article about Taylor last week, I decided to make a timeline of Taylor and Jake Gyllenhaal’s relationship. (Might be helpful for the newbies, you got to understand the PR side of her short-lived ‘relationships’.)

Do I think that it was a real relationship? No, I believe that it was purely a PR stunt, though somewhat more believable than Connor, Harry, Calvin and Tom (IMO). Now, this brings State of Grace, All Too Well, WANGBT, The Moment I Knew, and other songs on the table. Did she write those songs about him? Who knows; she wrote them, not me. Anyway, I’ll explain more after the timeline (at the bottom).

Please tell me we didn’t have sex last night (2/4)

You can read the first part hereThank you so much for all of your likes/comments/reblogs, it really means a lot x

Abby doesn’t know how long she’s been hunched over the toilet bowl, but after what feels a lifetime, her stomach is finally starting to settle down. After taking several deep breaths, she slowly releases her death grip on the bowl before settling down on her bum. Letting out a miserable groan, Abby resolutely tries to ignore the fact that Marcus is still crouching next to her on the ground. He has stopped stroking her back, but he’s still sitting rather close.    

“Do you want me to get you something?”, Marcus asks softly, breaking the awkward silence that had descended over them.

Abby weakly shakes her head, “No, I think I’m-”, she starts to reply, but another wave of nausea hits her and she’s doubled over the toilet bowl once more. 

Marcus quickly gathers her hair again, but fortunately this time her nausea only lasts for a couple of seconds. As Abby leans back, she gratefully accepts the piece of toilet paper he offers her before wiping her mouth with it.

“Ugh. I’m sorry you had to see this”, she murmurs, feeling her cheeks flush from embarrassment.

lapidot interpretation rankings

Bottom Tier: Thinking they should both hate each other, argue all the time, and never get along because apparently two characters aren’t allowed to grow and understand each other better

Middle Tier: Assuming that they never stop bickering, but you find the idea of them bickering to be Funny Roommate Banter as opposed to sheer hatred

High Tier: Coming to the conclusion that even if they don’t see eye to eye on everything, they’ve still grown close and enjoy each other’s company and friendship and can get along just fine despite their differences because at the end of the day, they genuinely do like and care for each other

God Tier: Realizing that from the start, the entire basis of their relationship has been trying new things Together, which has resulted in them forming a bond that - in a show chock-full of meaningful relationships - still manages to be unique and refreshing because you take these two gems that are so different and highlight the one thing that they have in common, which is adjusting to life in a new world full of new possibilities. Then you have them take on these new possibilities side by side so they can help each other learn, heal, support, encourage, and just peacefully exist on a planet they both once tried so hard to get away from, but now they’ve made it their home and they’ve done so together with the help of one another. And that shit’s fuckin beautiful

You know, I used to think antis were desperate, but now I'm conviced they're actually just stupid. There's a post going around with the screenshot of a fan edited passage on Rey's page in the fandom powered Disney Wiki website saying how much Rey and Kylo hate each other and wanted to kill each other. Apparently this means that Disney hates Reylo.


OMG I found it and it’s hilarious. I’m amazed that they could be so gullible, but I guess they’re seizing upon it out of desperation - official sources simply aren’t feeding into the anti narrative (if anything, they’re feeding into the Reylo narrative) so they have to literally make up their own news. It’s very sad, but it’s actually so intensely sad that it transcends its own cringyness in order to become magnificently funny. 

2 Hours and 9 Minutes

A Yuri on Ice Fanfic
Written for @seungchuchuweek

It’s past 2 am and he has training in five hours. Four hours and fifty-two minutes to be exact. He went to bed and turned the lights off two hours and eight minutes ago… Two hours and nine minutes now…

He has just spent two hours and nine minutes scrolling through the pictures on Phichit Chulanont’s sns account. To be fair, considering it has taken him that long, it says something about how often the other posts. (Way too much) It also says something about how far gone he is on his fellow skater that he finds it adorable. (2091 pictures? Really?)

Seung Gil is not good at this sort of thing. Has always believed getting involved with someone at this point in his career would only prove to be a distraction. Hadn’t even sought out friendship with the other international skaters because what was the point? They were competitors after the same prize. Would proclamations of friendship really withstand that competition? 1.09 points between a place on the podium and going home empty handed? Wouldn’t they hate each other two events later?

Apparently some people can’t take a hint, though. He’s actually grateful for that right about now. Even if part of the outcome is how a casual comment about him needing to check out his sns by Phichit has him up at some ridiculous hour of the morning. Because he obviously didn’t have any self control when it comes to hundreds of selfies of his one-sided crush.

Battle cry- Jeffmads- Pirate au- Chapter one

only visible in darkness, so consider this your darkness, you just gotta look for the stars.” He said softly and James rolled his eyes.“Is this how you make up for all the blood on your hands?” He asked lowly and Thomas tensed.“Your father has more blood on one hand than Alexander and I combined.” “I’m not my father.”
“That’s obvious.” Thomas replied, getting up and grabbing a key. “Try not to burn down the ship.” With that the door locked and he heard the click of the lock and he was locked inside the purple room, staring at the maps of the stars, his eyes stinging with tears as he was left with his thoughts.  The crown was heavy on the prince’s head as he stared at the palm of his hand, willing for the fire to  come. He may have been the crown prince, but he was also half fae, and while most halflings didn’t have powers, he had proven at a young age he did. James had started a forest fire, one that only his mother could stop, when he was the age of five. It was the same now, he could only summon when he was angry, and then he would lose control. James gritted his teeth, his eyes narrowing as his palm remained the same, then a small flicker, before a tiny flame danced in the hand of his palm. James beamed, closing his fist, extinguishing the flame. A lazy smile trailed over his lips as he walked out of the training room, hoping to avoid his father. He was lucky enough to make it up the spiraling  staircase,  and down the hall into his large room, pulling off his crown, then quickly changing into more casual clothes, a silky tunic and trousers. He looked noble, but not royal and that was exactly what he was hoping for. He sighed, exiting the room silently and  closing the door, hurriedly running down the staircase, creeping past the throne room and dining room, then finally running out the large doors to the stables.

After a few minutes he was riding through the forest, humming to himself, watching the scenery go by. Then he saw an object in the middle of the ground and he quickly halted his horse, staring at it.  It almost looked like a flash bomb, but those were only used by the arm- before he could even finish his thought there was a large flash of light, startling the horse enough that it bucked James off and ran off, leaving James winded, gasping on the ground, rubbing at his eyes.
“By the gods” He  started, standing up and reaching for his dagger, trying, trying, to summon a ring of fire, but nothing happened. A cold  chuckle filled the air, followed by a mocking laugh.

“The gods can’t help you now, hun.” A voice that sounded as if it came from the south taunted, and James looked around, yet the voice seemed to come from nowhere and everywhere. James shivered as a different voice began to speak.

I think the top notch in SU cr/itici/sm ain’t even the color palette discourse or the “characters having more than one character trait is equal to bad writing” but the time that EVERYONE wanted to demonize Lauren so fucking much that they actually believed in a bunch of 4C/ha/n screenshots. 

I thought they hated each other but apparently if it is to drag someone down and portray them as the worse its actually good to believe in 4Ch/an unsourced lies… 

Soukoku Rant

So I just needed to get this out there.  This won’t have any references (although I will try to direct to where I saw a thing) so sorry, but I just need to blab about this thought in my head. THIS TURNED OUT TO BE SO LONG SO HERE’S A CUT.

A big part of the BSD fandom is Soukoku.  Don’t get me wrong, I love Soukoku (Nakahara Chuuya and Dazai Osamu).  I don’t ship them but I love them, and especially love them separately (Chuuya is my favorite, and he’s still taller than me). ANYWAY something that always comes up is Soukoku’s relationship and I think the fandom in general is pretty spot on about how their dynamic is complicated and complex.  It is stated in the both the manga and anime by the characters themselves and in the manga character sheets that they hate each other.  Like to the point that Chuuya’s only dislike is Dazai. Not even Atsushi and Akutagawa have each other listed as dislikes (granted that’s pretty obvious and is a main story arc with Shin Soukoku, but I digress).  And they do apparently hate each other.  However, we all saw in both the manga and the anime how, when Dazai was smacked by Lovecraft and actually pretty hurt, Chuuya was concerned.  And in the opening art of Chapter 31 (Double Black/Soukoku)  of the manga little Chuuya and Dazai looking at each other as they walk away.  This all leads (pretty obviously) that their dynamic is more complex than just ‘they hate each other’. 

What I’ve been thinking about is this - there are two ways their relationship has played out. But there is something to keep in mind here before I ramble more: 1. the main ‘pairing’ of the story isn’t Soukoku (at least the main story of Bungou Stray Dogs); that belongs to Shin Soukoku. Atsushi IS the listed main protagonist and the manga has this goal in mind.  BSD is about Shin Soukoku not Soukoku. 2. We are getting an original movie that the poster featured Soukoku; so there might be hope for more Soukoku past but I don’t know anything and all my info has to be translated because I’m lame and don’t speak Japanese. So all this could be for naught. But do keep in mind, the movie is a Bones production and I have no idea how much say Asagiri is having (could be writing the whole thing, again I don’t speak Japanese and I have no idea). 

Now, the two ways Soukoku relationship could play out.  Let’s start with the optimistic one first. They were probably raised somewhat together in the Mafia and were friends once upon a time. They were partners after all, and while one could make an argument for putting them together for the compatibility of their strengths alone it was probably a little more than just that.  But they are SUPER compatible.  Chuuya is strong, and not just because his ability is fucking gravity manipulation; he is the lead martial artist of the Mafia.  Dazai is ‘the demonic prodigy’ and while he does have some hand-to-hand combat training and is good with it his real strength is his strategic mind.  They are very much a brains and brawn combo.  Not saying Chuuya isn’t smart, he is; Dazai is just smarter.  And this is where the hatred probably started.  They are listed as being the same age (both 22 in present day BSD) yet Dazai is the one known as the Demonic Prodigy, the one with the title of ‘Youngest Mafia Executive’.  Not Chuuya. We don’t know when Chuuya became an Executive (or at least I don’t) but we can assume it was after Dazai became one. And we know Dazai used to give Chuuya shit all the time when they were partners - Chuuya says Dazai used to spite him and insult him during Episode 10 (and the correlating manga chapter) when they were partners all the time.  Do we think Dazai is above rubbing something like that in Chuuya’s face? Chuuya is big on loyalty and the Mafia hierarchy, and Dazai being an Executive and Chuuya not would cause some problems for Chuuya with being his partner.  But is Dazai about being petty? Absolutely not.  Especially ESPECIALLY Mafia-Dazai. And Dazai toward Chuuya in general; he admits he was captured and came to Mafia headquarters ‘mostly for Atsushi’ with the rest of his reason being to spite and goad Chuuya.  EVEN AFTER FOUR YEARS OF NOT SEEING EACH OTHER DAZAI IS STILL A LITTLE SHIT TO CHUUYA. So let’s think about this; Chuuya as we know is an extremely hard worker, loyal to a fault to the Mafia, and cares deeply (as shown when he is looking at the deaths from Q’s curse).  Dazai (especially Mafia-Dazai and yes we must separate them) cares little for others, loves to prank his partners, and while he works hard everything is easy for him because he is so smart.  The hatred could have started, at least on Chuuya’s side, from a sense of jealousy and that’s WHY anytime Dazai is brought up and praised he still gets upset (that wine scene with Kouyou, Mori, and Chuuya post Shin Soukoku fighting Fitzgerald). And another thing - Chuuya is dependent on Dazai for Corruption. Completely dependent and at Dazai’s whim.  Soukoku is powerful and became Soukoku because of Corruption (as stated in the manga); Corruption being CHUUYA’S ability yet Chuuya’s life is in Dazai’s bandaged hands. And yet, Dazai seems to get the most praise.  Now why does Dazai hate Chuuya? (We know he does, it’s stated and he is much less reactionary toward Chuuya than the other way around). Not sure, Dazai is always hard to read.  But I would theorize that they were friends at one point, probably partners for a long time, and it was jealousy and conflicting personalities that made them drift apart.  But it’s hard to let go of in-grained habits, like caring for your partner and knowing their habits and attacks; remember it was 4 years from when Dazai left the Mafia and they still remember their old maneuvers.  And caring for the one person that could save your life if you have to use your suicidal yet super strong true ability. Looking at you, handsome ginger. 

Now for the more pessimistic reason they hate each other - because Asagiri wanted a parallel to Shin Soukoku. That’s it. Because the author wanted a parallel.  And this only works as the parallel to Shin Soukoku because Dazai is officially part of the Agency and Chuuya is a Mafia Executive.  It would make sense for there to be an original Soukoku if the end-game is Shin Soukoku with Atsushi and Akutagawa.  It makes Shin Soukoku more believable and gives them room to grow and makes them front and center if and when they become more powerful than Soukoku.  Now yes, Chuuya and Dazai were dubbed Soukoku back when they were in the Mafia together, but WE DON’T SEE THAT which is what is important.  We don’t see Soukoku originally, we see Soukoku as Asagiri (this is an intentional fallacy but imma do it anyway) intended for us to see them - as one member from the Agency and one member from the Mafia working together. Giving us an original Soukoku with a backstory that makes it believable makes the idea of Shin Soukoku more appealing and more believable especially since Akutagawa spends SO MUCH TIME trying to kill Atsushi. Them working together without a previous basis of reliability, of an example of ‘oh hey two people from opposite sides who hate each other working together can work cool’ would be hard to sell.  Now this isn’t the first time things have been twisted to suit the narrative in BSD.  Very first episode, very first chapter - when we find out Atsushi is the tiger and we see Dazai’s No Longer Human nullification for the first time, for some reason Atsushi’s arm doesn’t return to normal.  Which, by all accounts and all instances we see of No Longer Human later, it should have.  So why this first time does Atsushi’s arm remain a tiger paw? Dramatic effect. So Atsushi can find out in a slightly humorous manner he is the tiger and he is a gifted individual.  Dazai says “My nullification ability is absolute” in Double Black when fighting Lovecraft.  If it’s absolute, as we have seen it to be, this first interaction of No Longer Human on Atsushi makes no sense - except as a twist made by the author for the narrative.  And the narrative is Atsushi, as the main protagonist, joining the Armed Detective Agency and later becoming part of Shin Soukoku. Side/Last note, Soukoku isn’t the only Mafia/Agency duo OH NO we find out Mori and Fukuzawa were an unofficial Soukoku back in the day.  Chapter 50 we discover THIS LITTLE TIDBIT and it was hinted they had interacted before during the Guild Arc. 

All in all? It is probably some combination of the two.  There is probably a back story to Chuuya and Dazai’s hatred of each other we are not privy to. But this is a chance it is not detailed because it isn’t necessary for the main story.  Now, if the movie does prequel to our BSD universe and gives us the truth of Soukoku? I’m down. 

The purpose of this? I’ve been thinking about this every god-damned day for like a week and I needed to get it out. Sorry for the ramble.

Mary Howell eyed his son’s car that he had parked in front of the house without telling anybody that he was home.

 It was pitch black outside, but bright light flooded through the windows of both our childhood homes. We had just walked out of the forest that held so many memories, returning from our first date. His mother could only see our dark silhouettes. One tall dark frame and a slightly shorter one walking next to each other.

As soon as we reached his old house and the yellow light revealed our faces his mother wrapped her arms tightly around her son, welcoming him back home. One could tell that she had missed him by the way she held him close for more than a minute.

“What are you doing here, Daniel. It’s late, shouldn’t you be at uni?” she asked still hugging him. Although she had usually intended to sound reproachful, she couldn’t hide the fact that she was actually happy to see her son again. Mrs. Howell had the same eye and hair colour as Dan, but the shape of her face was completely different than his.

“I should be at university mum, but I thought my date is more important than-” before he could even end his sentence his mother noticed me. I thought she’d be surprised or confused to see me, but instead she let out a high pitched squeal of excitement. She warmly smiled at me as if I were her long lost daughter. It actually felt good to see her again. Since I had spent at least half of my childhood at the Howell’s we knew each other quite well and I could always ask her for advice.

“Dear God, finally! I missed seeing you and Dan together, Rosie.” she joyfully smiled and gave me a bone crushing hug.

 We decided to skip our classes the following day and just stayed in our home town over night. After Dan’s mum had greeted me she immediately scurried over to my house to tell my mum the news.

“We should have made a bet, Linda.” I heard her say to my mum and we spent the rest of the late evening catching up on things and me and Dan had to obviously tell everyone how we got together. Everybody including me was totally delighted about his first date idea and nobody seemed to even remember that me and Dan had a major fight in high school and hated each other for at least two years. Apparently everybody but us had already known that we’d end up together one day.

“Should we watch a movie, baby?” I asked my boyfriend of over a month as I walked into his apartment’s living room, carrying drinks for both of us. Phil was at a party with Caleb so me and Dan had their flat to ourselves.

“I’d rather just make out.” Dan grinned, sounding is if he was joking although he obviously wasn’t.

He was sprawled out on the couch, taking up all the space. His hair was a bit messy but still looked perfect. He wore dark sweatpants and a black t-shirt. What a surprise, right? His pink lips turned into a cheeky smirk as he noticed that I was checking him out.

“Are you just going to stand there and stare?” he asked me while playfully rising his eyebrows. The teasing sparked a little fire in the pit of my stomach, causing me to swiftly walk over to where he lied. Before Dan could even realize what was happening I was already straddling his lap. His eyes widened at my sudden braveness and at the feeling of my crotch pressed against his. 

Dan swallowed hard, his gaze focused on my lips. Suddenly the room was filled with sexual tension. I had the craving desire to kiss him, as if his lips were air and I was out of breath. I could feel my cheeks heat up with excitement as I bent down to lean in. My lips lightly brushed his, sending chills down my spine. My whole body started tingling as we finally kissed. We had made out a lot of times before, but I was still not used to getting to kiss Dan Howell whenever I wanted to. No matter how often I got to kiss him the butterflies never left. We moved our lips in perfect sync, like an experienced team. He carefully but not too lightly bit my bottom lip, asking for entrance that I gladly granted him. We explored each other’s mouths. I could still taste the chocolate we had earlier on his tongue. Since I was that close to him I could smell his sweet cologne. Although I was used to it, it still dazed all my senses. My hands were pressed against Dan’s broad chest for support while has large hands stabilized me by holding my waist. I left open mouth kisses on his sensitive neck while he sensually ran his hands up and down my back. Every spot on my body he touched started to tingle. His eyes were pressed close as I left a trail of love bites along his collarbone. I could tell by the look on his face that he was trying to hold back his moans, but I couldn’t let that happen. Dan’s moans were supposed to be heard. I started to explore his upper body by running my fingers along his chest and strong biceps. Since his shirt had short sleeves I had access to a little bit of naked skin. As I traced his defined arms I suddenly had the urgent desire to take his shirt off to feel his bare chest. I tugged at the dark fabric before I slightly pushed it up to reveal a little part of his stomach and happy trial. After fully removing his shirt I left wet kisses all over his broad upper body, making a silent whimper escape his lips.

“You are so beautiful.” I whispered, causing Dan’s cheeks to turn a deep shade of pink. His hands had by now wandered to my bum. I decided that it would only be fair to take off my shirt as well so I pulled it over my head and carelessly threw it over my shoulder. I was glad that I remembered to change into a sexy bra before a came here and I could tell that Dan was pretty glad too because he couldn’t take his eyes off my chest. It seemed like his eyes had grown ten times bigger as he stared at my breasts almost drooling.

“Fuck.” He gulped and reached around my back to unclasp my bra. I quickly pulled the straps off my shoulders and let the fabric fall down, revealing my naked boobs. My nipples had already grown hard and were demanding Dan’s touch. Within a second he had cupped my breasts and teased my nipples with his thumb. I felt the wetness form between my thighs and started needily rocking against Dan’s crotch to ease the burning desire. The sudden movement finally made a moan escape his perfectly shaped lips. His fingers dug into the skin around my hipbones and I could feel his length grow harder underneath me by the second. Dan left kisses all over my body and his hands were exploring every centimetre of my skin. I was still rubbing my crotch against his, knowing that my juices were already staining my panties.

I tugged my finger under the hem of Dan’s sweatpants, but just as I was about to free him from his trousers he made me stop.          

“Rose what are you doing?” Dan chocked out. His cheeks were a really deep shade of red. He nervously scratched the back of his head while he tried to not stare at my boobs.

I suddenly started to feel uncomfortable as I noticed that my boyfriend seemed like he wanted to push me off his body.

“We have the flat to ourselves. So I thought we could you know…” I whispered embarrassed and covered my naked chest.

Dan swallowed hard.

“Well, I uhm.. I have a really important game tomorrow. I don’t think it would be clever to do that on a night before a game.” He babbled while avoiding my gaze.

 Dan and I had been together for over a month. We met in kindergarten and he was my neighbour and best friend for most of my childhood. When we started dating I thought we’d have sex after one week since I was well aware of Dan’s fuckboy reputation. But I was wrong. We made out, we had taken each other’s shirts off, but never had we gone further than that. I wasn’t the one holding us back, he was. I had tried to make a move a couple of times but every time Dan had a reason why not to do it. And after nearly a month and a half of us being in a relationship he used his Football game tomorrow as an excuse to not have sex with me.

 “If you don’t want to have sex with me just tell me, Dan!” I loudly snarled at him. I searched the room for my bra and shirt so I could cover myself and stop feeling like an idiot.

“Rose that’s not-“ he tried to defend himself, but I was faster.

“Am I not sexy and slutty enough for you to have sex with me? Am I not good enough for you?” I asked him, my voice shaking.

“You literally bang every single girl you can find, but you won’t sleep with your girlfriend?” I shouted and bitterly laughed. Honestly I felt humiliated and hurt. The biggest fuckboy in the history of fuckboys won’t fuck me although I was already trying to take his pants off. Great, just great. Another blow to my self esteem.

 “Of course you are good enough, Rose!” Dan assured me while pleadingly looking at me. He tried to calm me down by rubbing my left thigh, but considering the fact that I was actually insanely turned on it just made everything worse.

 “Why won’t you have sex with me then?!” I shouted angrily.

“Because I’m afraid of ruining everything if I do!” he shouted back. I could tell that his confession took him a lot of strength and I finally calmed down after his words.

“Why would that ruin things?” I asked and scooted closer to where Dan was sat.

“I have never been in a relationship before. I know how to fuck around, but I don’t know how to ‘make love’ or something like that. I just wanted to be careful with you, cause I’m really afraid of losing you. I also told you that I’d stop being a fuckboy and fucking you wouldn’t really prove that I have stopped right. And yes, I may also be a bit nervous.”

 “Babe, I’m sorry. You don’t have to feel like that. As long as we are together nothing can go wrong.” I gently played with a strand of his brown hair and softly kissed him.

“I do want you Rose. I want you all the damn time.” Dan whispered cupping my left cheek.

MAN ok so I’ve backed way off the discourse side of things. But like, this recent drama blowup is just all kinds of gross and hitting close to home as a NB, queer ace person who grew up in the homophobic south

The queer community has a long long history of fighting among itself about Who Is Queer Enough and Who Is Legit and it’s a contest nobody wins and everyone loses, and every single time homophobic people shriek in glee that we apparently hate each other just as much as they hate us. This cycle repeats over and over and it’s so goddamn idiotic.

There are far far more important things to focus on than who you personally think should be queer, it really feels like watered down TERF ideology to try and exclude the A from LGBTQIA

Anyway that’s my quarterly discourse post, we’ll be back to aesthetic posts and snappers shortly

Hi Admins, there was a good jikook fix I read but I can't remember the name of. The story starts off with Jimin and Jungkook waking up for having sex. I remember that Jimin and Jungkook hate each other but apparently got engaged when they were drunk. I also remember that Jimin and Jungkook are heirs to big companies.I would really appreciate if you could tell me the name of this fic. Thanks and have a great rest of the week!

The fic you’re looking for is

Flashing Lights (You’ve Got Me Faded) by bonnia on AO3 (3/? | 17,878 | E)

getting married to the heir of his father’s rival company, multi-billionaire-playboy-sexgod jeon jungkook in a bout of drunken insanity and consequently being forced into a fake relationship with said asshole, is Very Low on jimin’s bucket list. (actually, it doesn’t even make the list.)

but, jimin would grudgingly admit, at least the sex is good.

(actually, the sex is better than good. but you didn’t hear that from him.)
