they have a lot more in common than they thought

8

I thought this city would be a perfect place where everyone got along and anyone could be anything. Turns out, life’s a little bit more complicated than a slogan on a bumper sticker. Real life is messy. We all have limitations. We all make mistakes. Which means, hey, glass half full, we all have a lot in common. And the more we try to understand one another, the more exceptional each of us will be. But we have to try. So no matter what kind of person you are, I implore you: Try. Try to make the world a better place.
                           Look inside yourself and recognize that change starts with you.

anonymous asked:

If you had control on ending snk, how would you end the story?

Well. I want Annie to get a fucking redeemption arc. Please god. Let her join the Eldians and be on the same team as Armin and Eren. 

But in general, like, a conclusion to the entire plot? 

The Marleyans and Eldians come to some kind of agreement where they stay on opposite sides of the world where they can live away from each other long enough to get over their generations of bitterness. 

They can’t settle their differences, fine, but I don’t want to see one side or the other get totally eliminated.

I want them to take a damn time out and try to share the damn world, and realistically, it would take a looong time to get over it. 

Christa lives a long and happy life as a queen and fucking, Isayama, give her a wife or so help me god….

Connie and Sasha are alive and well. They get married and work for the government, maybe in agriculture or management of food storage. 

Levi and Hanji are alive and they get married. They go on adventures together, even when they’re old. Hanji never loses that scientist’s spark and Levi would never leave his last remaining friend  and partner alone. 

Jean…well. I see him being some kind of politician or head in the military. But the military’s not fighting anymore, so he’s really in charge of helping people settle outside of the walls and adjust to the “Real” world. 

I see him getting married, but I don’t know if I see him getting married to Mikasa. He’s the jealous type. 

Mikasa, well.

I’d like to see her branch away from Eren and perhaps use her strength for other things. 

Since in this ending, the fighting is over, she’s now allowed to pursue other interests. 

She’s never cared about exploring, not as much as Eren and Armin. 

I see her…settling down somewhere, keeping to herself, maybe taking care of horses and animals on a farm. 

I don’t see her…chasing Eren and Armin.

Like I know she wants to “be by Eren’s side” but I feel like that’s only because it’s a dangerous world and she feels she needs to protect him. 

I feel like she would trust Eren’s safety with Armin.

Which brings me to my next and final dream snk ending.

Eren and Armin, if they can’t have a cure, go out on a last adventure together.

They know Eren will die.

Armin knows he’ll follow shortly after. 

But Armin wants to show Eren everything before he does.

They travel as far as they can in the time they have left, mapping lands and admiring the view and camping on all kinds of terrain.

They settle down when the time is near and Armin prepares for the end. 

And when Eren does die, he buries him out there, I imagine on a cliff overlooking the sea.

And Armin is alone now, but he’s still got a job to do. 

He writes the entire story, everything that had happened up until that point. 

He leaves it at Eren’s grave for someone to find.

He goes back home to Mikasa, tells her the news. They mourn together and Armin has to tell Mikasa that he doesn’t want her to be alone, to find other friends and family once he’s gone. 

Maybe Mikasa and Jean reconnect here, I don’t know.

I could see that, actually. Mikasa and Jean, old friends, reminiscing about the past and realizing that they’ve been through a lot together and they have more in common than they ever thought. 

Anyway.

When Armin dies, Mikasa has him cremated. 

She goes out, maybe with Jean, maybe with the entire surviving 104th squad, with Levi and Hange with them. 

They bring his ashes out to Eren’s grave and scatter them over the cliff and all of them pay their last respects. 

I don’t know if the book Armin wrote is still intact after years of weathering. 

But what remains of it is still there, near Eren’s grave, and Armin’s too. 

it’s the story of a boy who wanted to see the ocean. 

and the story of the friend who took his hand and lead him there. 

Correlations in rising sign appearance

These are just commonalities in the appearance of people with the same rising sign, of course you may have a Leo rising and not look exactly like any of the people portrayed in the post but that’s because 1) aspects to your ascendant and the rest of the chart effects appearance to! So this is mainly focusing on facial features because the 1st house rules the head. And 2) genetics :-P

Aries Rising: 

Aries risings seem to have very symmetrical faces, they have an eyebrow shape that can make them seem a bit angry or intimidating. They have small smiles, and piercing eyes like they have this pointed shape to them. One stands out here though, right? Well Shakira has Pluto opposing her ascendant, as I thought so she does appear a bit more Scorpionic than these other ladies.

Taurus Rising:

Now our beautiful Venusians. These ladies most notable commonality in their facial features is this strong facial bone structure. They also have these chins that poke out slightly. They also seem to have a face shape somewhere in between round and square.  They also seem to have a kind of earthy skin ton, even our pale Lana has some earthy undertones. 

Gemini Rising: 

Oh these Gems of ladies do appear to have a lot in common with their facial features! They seem to have longer faces, and longer noses. Wider set eyes also seem to be common. They also seem to have notable cheekbones, and a quirky sort of smile. 

Cancer Rising: 

These Cancer rising ladies all have very square and puffy faces, They also have very milky eyes and skin. They seem to also have full-ish lips.They have strong facial bone structure, as a cardinal rising should. And they have these really high cheekbones. They also seem to have thicker hair, and pursed lips.

Leo rising:

These Leonine women all seem to have rounder, softer faces. They also seem to have this skin that just… glows. Not to mention they have thicker hair. They have more leveled eyes. They have a similar width to their lips, and similar upper and lowe lip proportions. 

Virgo Rising:

It seems that these Virgoan women have a similar oval-ish face shape, a bit of a crooked smile, and similar long-ish rounded foreheads with a bit of a dent in them. They also seem to get this similar lines around their cheekbones when they smile.

Libra Rising: 

The first most noticeable commonality between these beautiful Venusian ladies is that there is a certain softness to their face, their’s no sharp features that point out or anything. Except for a slightly pointed out chin.  They also have similar, nice noses? They also have similar lips in that they are in-between thin and full lips. 

Scorpio Rising:

Well look at these beautiful Scorpionic ladies, they all have this obviously more round-ish faces. Their lips all also do this kind of pointed-folded thing when they smile, which idrk how to explain but just look at the pictures. Their cheekbones all also stand out a lot when they smile. They also all have this chin that points out a bit when they smile.

Sagittarius Rising: 

Beautiful Sagittarius risings seem to have longer faces, and smaller eyes that are a bit wider apart. They also have noticeably nice cheekbones. They also tend to have smaller foreheads, and a nose that stand out in a slightly hooked way. But they overall just have a very deer-like face tbh?? 

Capricorn Rising:

Similarly to Sagittarius rising, these gorgeous Capricorn rising have longer faces, but they also have longer noses. Their cheekbones are nice, but not all that initially prominent. They have a kind of pointed eye shape that causes them to have more so piercing eyes. Overall they just have decently symmetrical faces.

Aquarius Rising: 

Ah our uniquely beautiful Aquarian women! The most obvious commonality for Aquarius risings is a more square yet soft face. They also seem to have small foreheads, and wide cheeks. Big eyes also seem to be a commonality, and a nose that sticks out but isn’t hooked or anything. 

Pisces Rising:

Oh Pisces, these lovely ladies seem to all have an upper lip that curves down/in a bit. They also all have these round and soft yet noticeable cheekbones. Their faces in general are long yet soft. They also all have a very far away look in their eyes, as if they are of in their own imagination.

If Harry Potter had been sorted in Slytherin House.

In the first year, Harry Potter decides to shake Draco Malfoy’s hand when he first offered to be friends. Even though he doesn’t like to admit it, it is Voldemort that spoke for him at that moment. Immediately after, he’s sorted with the blond in Slytherin. They team up quickly and Harry convinces Malfoy that Snape is not the nice guy. Harry discovers how Draco Malfoy was raised by a racist family and fights a lot with Malfoy and his nasty comments because he knows what it is like to be rejected for something you have no control on. Harry (and Draco, though he doesn’t want to admit it) becomes friends with Ron and Hermione when they find Ron, by himself, looking for Hermione at Halloween. Draco and Harry were sneaking out, trying to find the troll for the lols of it and Ron was doing according to the canon storyline. The four of them don’t completely get along first, mostly because Draco cannot stand the mudblood, but after heated arguments and a deal on the quidditch field (”If I catch the snitch, and I will, before you make a single goal, Malfoy, you stop calling Hermione a mudblood.”) he finally accepts to keep his mouth shut and roll his eyes a minimum when they hang out with the Gryffindors. The four of them goes in the trap for the philosopher stone. Draco helps Hermione carrying Ron to the infirmary.

In the second year, by having a true friend, Draco jerk attitude gradually fainted. Harry and him, both understand each other without words ever needed. They also hang a lot with Ron and Hermione. Draco is always quiet when they are with them. He’s too busy rolling his eyes. Harry tells Draco about Dobby and Draco forces Dobby to stop trying to kill his friend and tell them about the Chamber of Secrets. They practice Quidditch together all the time. Draco complains about his dad a lot. They use polyjuice to spy on the teachers to learn more about the chamber of secrets, instead, all they learn is about McGonnagall’s wife. Draco and Ron are both with Harry in the Chamber of Secrets but are separated when Lockhart uses Ron’s wand. They let Harry go find Ginny and stay quiet for a bit. After a couple of minutes, they start talking and recognise that they have a lot more in common than they thought. They start arguing about their collection of chocolate toads cards.

In the third year, Draco was with Harry, in the train, when the dementors strike. He says a sassy comment when Harry wakes up after fainting, yet he did hear a woman screaming. It was his mum. Screaming at his dad. They always fight. He’s jealous that Harry spends time with Lupin. He feels lonely. He hates the other Slytherins. Especially, Pansy Parkinson. She’s always following him around. He finds himself spending more time with Ron and Hermione in order to avoid her. They talk about how shitty is Divination class. Pansy Parkinson is the one that gets hit by Buckbeak. She wants to impress Draco. She’s the first one to notice that Draco is hypnotised by Harry Potter. She hates it. Draco is the one that falls off his broom. He cannot participate in the saving of Buckbeak nor Sirius because he’s in the infirmary for a long time (don’t worry Harry visits him often).

By the fourth year, we get to see both of characters to evolve together, tease each other, flirt with each other under sassy comments. Draco helps Harry getting ready for the Triwizard Tournament. Harry finds Draco tied up in the lake; he’s the person he cares the most about. Harry tells Hermione about how if he was a girl he would invite Draco to the Yule Ball. Draco invites Pansy (because he knows she’ll accept) to make Harry jealous. Harry goes with Parvati to convince himself he doesn’t have feelings for Draco. He promptly realises he’s been lying to himself when he sees Draco holding Pansy tightly. Draco starts going out with her. Lots of drama. The third task happens. It kills Draco to see Harry so devastated after Cedric’s death. If finds him in Maugrey’s office with Dumbledore and Co. Harry is angry at Draco because he saw his dad that night. Their dads. Draco is petrified, struck for the first time of the horrors his father took a part to. Maybe even is mother. Reconciliation. Draco’s character development of the end of the seventh book happens.

By the fifth year, Harry sassy comments to Draco’s father made Draco realise that his home is not at the Malfoy’s manor. Narcissa, loyal confident of her son, offers that he moves definitely with Andromeda after a torrid fight she has with her son about their link with Voldemort. She knows he will be happier there. She also knows Voldemort plans and she wants to distance her precious son from this toxic household. Andromeda’s house is also very close to the Dursleys. Draco teams up with Harry for the Dumbledore Army. They also team up with Fred and George to prank Umbridge, a lot. Harry and Draco kiss for the first time at a meeting everyone forgot except them. Harry tells Hermione. Draco tells Ron. Draco goes to the Christmas party at 12 Grimmauld place. Harry tells clumsily Sirius about his bisexuality. Sirius is moved by Harry’s confidence and tells him about how James and Lily would be proud of their son. How he is proud of the man he became. Harry and Draco cuddle secretly and it helps Harry with his nightmares. Draco freezes at the fight of the ministry. What if his father or his mother are there? He cannot risk hurting them. He holds Harry when Sirius dies. He holds Harry after Voldemort’s fight. His parents learn about it. Narcissa knew. Lucius is infuriated, goes to Andromeda’s to talk his son out of the noxious relation he shares with Harry Potter. Draco stands up for the first time against his father.

In the sixth year, they accept their affection for each other and team up with Ron and Hermione to destroy Voldemort. The whole Halfblood Prince thing isn’t happening nor is Draco plotting against Dumbledore, Snape is charged to kill Dumbledore and he’s the one that lets the Death Eaters into the castle. Draco is constantly haunted by the face of disgust of his father when he looked at him the last time they met. He accepts to help Harry but makes him understand he won’t be able to fight Death Eaters if they meet any. 

It all goes according to canon until they are at the Malfoy’s manor and Bellatrix tortures Draco for having betrayed his family and his blood. The scars he gets replaces the one left by Sectum Sempra in canon. Narcissa is at Andromeda’s when it happens. When she learns about it, she breathes in painfully and promises to herself to help Harry when the time comes. Lucius tells her when she comes back in order to win back her trust. She’s so angry at Bellatrix but she hides it impeccably, she volunteers to do extra work for Voldemort to conceal her rage. It makes her gain even more his trust for when the Moment comes. Everything goes as canon, except that it is Pansy Parkinson that goes hysteric in the Room of Requirements and set fire to it. Draco was the one that went in the Chamber of Secrets because he always hears his boyfriend talk in Parseltongue in his sleep. Draco has a breakdown when he sees Harry in the arms of Hagrid and Narcissa, helpless, by his side. When Harry moves, he automatically runs to him and throws his wand at him. He then runs into the castle to find another wand but ends up helping Sybil Trelawney with an injured student. He understands that even if he despised her classes, she’s a good person and is worth respect.

The epilogue is that after the war they both become professors at Hogwarts; Harry is the D.A.D.A. teacher and Draco is the potions teacher. They adopt Teddy Lupin and it makes them want to adopt more children: James, Scorpius, Neville and Lily. All is well.

Sansa, Smart

So. Sansa. I hear some people think she’s not very clever. This is a view shared by several characters in the books.

But there’s no reason the readership should share those views. Sansa is a very clever individual who makes increasingly good use of several skills she started the series with, and develops greatly as an observer and an actor over the course of the story.

Putting everything under a cut, for reasons of four books of brainpower.

Life is great when you know you have at least one loyal best friend. It’s better than having 10 okay friends. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better to have entered my life and that was my best friend, Jeff Atkins.

We in actual fact met because of our parents since we’re both neighbours and was new to the neighbourhood at the time, Jeff’s parents had invited us over to his house for dinner. I was shy to speak to someone who was as handsome as Jeff, I wasn’t one to speak to boys in a hurry and where I came from was an all girls school. Knowing that I’m going to the same school as him also had given me the chills, who knows what’s in stored for me. Though that night Jeff had gotten me to show my bubbly and loud side - we had a lot in common.

Jeff introduced me to his friends which I was glad they were all easy to make conversations with but I didn’t believe they were being genuine about who they say they were.

Through time, I started to have feelings for Jeff as more than a friend. This really did scare me because I didn’t want to lose the friendship we had. Worst case scenario is me telling him that I love him and have been in love with him since the start, all he would say is nothing and probably laugh at me like everyone else.

I thought to myself that I should set my feelings for him aside and just worry about our friendship. Problem is that he has a girlfriend named Jazmin for a while now. He seems to be head over heels for her and well I can’t change that. She was the new girl at our school, Jeff couldn’t stop talking about her and since Clay was her buddy, it was a bonus for Jeff so he had an excuse to talk to her. They’ve been dating for a good 6 months.

Later today our whole school was invited to Jess’ house party. As much as I didn’t want to go Jeff insisted that I come with and of course Jazmin was going to tag along. No hate to her, she’s really sweet and pretty - everything that I’m not - we both had become acquaintances.

It was currently 3pm and the party was at 6pm. I was busy studying and decided on getting ready at 5 since Jess’ house is literally 5 minutes away from mine. As I was just about to get back to studying my notifications went off, it was a message from Hannah asking if I was going. I replied back saying yes and hoped to see her there. I left my phone aside and was finishing off my summaries. My phone was ringing this time, I groaned in annoyance, we’re all going to see each other later today anyway so I don’t see what’s the need for the messages and phone calls.

It was a call from Jeff. “Hello” I answered plainly. “Sup bestie” Jeff enthused. “Busy studying well was until you interrupted me. How about you ?” I asked. “Oh my bad Miss. Y/L/N looks like the next time I shouldn’t bother to phone you at all” he said sarcastically. “That’s fine by me” I giggled. “Anyways I just wanted to know if you need a ride ? I’m just on my way to fetch Jazmin and thought I can pop by to pick you up” he said. “Nah it’s okay, thanks for the offer, though I’ll walk” I said. “Are you kidding me ? Do you know how dangerous it is for you to walk alone at night ? I’m coming to pick you up. No buts. See you in a bit” he said lastly and ended this call. Gosh this boy.

I left my work as it was on my study table and started looking through my closet for an outfit. I finally picked out a cropped black lace off the shoulder top with denim short shorts paired with adidas original superstars. I left my hair as its natural wavy state with subtle make up on. I sprayed on some perfume, grabbed my phone and decided to sit on my front porch whilst I waited. 2 minutes later Jeff parks in front, I jumped in the back “Hey” I smiled. “Heya” they replied back. “I love your outfit” she said as she looked at me through the rear mirror. “Aww thanks, I love yours too” I said and turned to look at her in the passenger seat. I felt Jeff look at me through the rear mirror but he didn’t say anything.

We got to the party and as soon as we got there we 3 had dispersed. Well, I was on my own and I’m sure they’re somewhere here together. I walked into Jess’ house and taking in my surroundings, as close as Jess and I may stay we aren’t the bestest of friends though we’re good enough acquaintances.

I spotted Clay and Hannah talking by the couch. “Aww well if it ain’t my favourite people” I cooed. They’re so cute honestly get married already. “Oh hey Y/N it’s good to see you here other than worrying about your books” Clay said and pulled me in for a hug. “Look who’s talking, this isn’t my first party Jensen. I’m the one shocked to see you here that goes for you too Han” I said. “I thought I should try something different” Clay said. “Same here” Hannah added. “I can tell you both did, loving the hair by the way Hannah" I said lastly and faded off into the kitchen.

All I need right now was a drink though I’m not talking about alcohol. Alcohol is not always the option when you’re sad. I poured myself a cup of Coca Cola and walked back to where Clay, and Hannah was. “You guys want a drink ?” I asked. “Nah we’re good” Hannah smiled and shook the cup in her hand. I thought I might as well sit next to them on the couch but then Jess and Justin beat me to it. They were both clearly pissed drunk but it was more evident on Jess. “Hey Y/N” she waved. “Hii” I waved back at them. She then moved her attention to the suck and blow game happening in front of them. “Hey ! We want to play too” Jess whined. I took a quick look at all the participants and surprise surprise, Jeff and Jazmin were playing too. Can I even stand to watch this ?

The card started from Zach to Sheri, to Monty to another blonde, to Jeff. I don’t even know his this boy couldn’t hold onto that card for a few seconds longer. It fell from his lips and he was quick to connect his with Jazmin. “Excuse me” I told Clay and Hannah. They know. I walked out to the front yard and sat on the staircase, I tried not to cry from the pain but I was weak. A tear dropped onto my thigh, I quickly wiped away my tears in hopes that no one sees me crying - I don’t want to cause a scene - their was a hand placed on my shoulder. I looked back to the person and it was Zach. “Hey are you okay ?”

PLOTS THAT I NEVER KNEW I NEEDED TILL NOW — *

                                                                PLOT #1 

muse a is what they call “the wall”. no matter how well you may think you know them, no matter how well you may make them smile or laugh, you’ll never truly know the real them, due to the wall they have up. muse a has always been closed off when it came to relationships — they didn’t believe anyone could actually see themselves with muse a in the long run, even if they had every single trait they had been looking for. after failed attempts of relationships, muse a had began to get better and better at going from the dumpee to the dumper. like clockwork, muse a just got out of another relationship, one to where it lasted far too long and they bump into muse b, a free-spirited and loving character who never settles, who never gets into relationships and for some odd reason, muse a wants a relationship with muse b in someway and somehow, they were determined to have it — whether it meant risking being hurt once again but, how can you hurt when you’ve become numb to it, right? 

                                                                PLOT #2

the question that everyone has regarding a break up, is can exes really just be friends after a break up? muse a and muse b had dated for years, knowing every little detail and every habit they had about one another. muse a was this driven and perfectionist of a person, but they always knew how to have a good time — whereas with muse b was always getting in some type of trouble. despite the odd pair, their relationship never went through the ups and downs, they barely ever argued and overall, the two always mentioned how well their relationship has always been — it wasn’t until muse a began to feel like muse b was going into a horrible route in their life with almost getting arrested, talking to people disrespectfully, getting drunk every other day. they were turning into someone muse a didn’t really know anymore and it didn’t make muse a feel any better or safer being with muse b, which ultimately led the two to break up. however, due to their long status of their relationship, muse b has been reaching out, asking and hoping for muse a to at least give them a chance at friendship, but — muse a is now that person asking, can the two really just be friends?

                                                               PLOT #3

being in an on and off relationship, muse a had always been wrapped around muse b’s finger. the two would fight, break up, make up and repeat and everyone knew the routine of the couple. muse a would fall for muse b’s flashing smile and their heartfelt words that led to them getting back together, even though muse a knew they didn’t actually mean a single word. wanting their relationship to work, muse a tries and has tried everything there is but, muse b makes it clear they could careless of the effort. after looking back at all the fights and all the tears that muse a had to deal with thanks to muse b, it’s a surprise to everyone and to muse b, when muse a finally puts their foot down and begins to worry about themselves again, they start ignoring muse b’s phone calls, home visits and eventually drives muse b over the edge and makes them reevaluate what’s truly happening and tries everything to get muse a’s attention again. 

                                                              PLOT #4

muse a and muse b had always been the best of friends. the two always were together and nobody or anything could get the two apart. it wasn’t until muse b was offered a job somewhere across the country, and without much thinking, muse a begged them to not go — finally admitting their feelings, muse b agreed to not leave, and without thinking turned down a job that could have changed their life forever but, like every cliche movie, they were blinded by a confess they believed would end happily. after a few months, the two began to fight more often, which led to random outbursts, or one leaving without speaking a word or trying to fix things. the sexual connectivity was there and sadly, it was the only thing keeping the two together. muse a started to feel emotionally disconnected while muse b could only blame muse a for dragging them behind and keeping them from their dream. it was a best friends gone lovers turned into strangers, and that was something they had always wanted to avoid, no matter what may had caused the two to start feeling disconnected to one another.  

                                                   PLOT #5

muse b is the big shot around campus, known for their charm, their families’ fortune and of course, their player antics. not only are they top of their class, but they are also a top athlete. instead of the cliche, shy muse a falling for the popular muse b, how about muse a is a transfer to said college, and not only are they also known for their charismatic and outgoing personality, but they are also a top athlete. with being said, the two are introduced during class, muse b is up to their old little habits, answering each and every question that the professor throws at them, until they get one wrong and is out shined by muse a, who frankly is, smirking and making it seem like they are taunting muse b for their mistake. it turns into a feud almost, who can answer more questions, who can drink the most beers, who can out fuck the other — little did they know, they have a lot more in common than they truly thought when muse a finally asks muse b on a coffee date, which is where the real tension begins to show.

Home Before Midnight

Prompt: Donatello x reader where it’s like a backwards Cinderella? Don finds a way to turn himself human until midnight so he can go partying like what he assumes normal people do. He ends up meeting the reader and having a good time but runs away before his watch hits midnight. Reader tries to follow him, but loses him in an alley. All that was left behind of him was his glasses that got knocked away in his frenzy to leave.

Note: Aaaaaaaaaaah! This is like the cutest thing ever.

Warnings: None??

Word Count: 1158

It was 8 pm. Donnie had four hours as a human, if his calculations were correct. As long as he was home by midnight, he was home free. It was foolproof.

“So what are you going to do tonight?” April asked. She looked over the boys as they took in their new human form. It was unbelievable. Just because it was temporary didn’t mean they couldn’t have fun while it lasted.

“I have no idea,” Donatello stated. “We have until midnight.”

“My nieces are throwing a party.” Casey shrugged. “You should drop by. Tell them Casey sent you.”

“Aw yeah, bro! Party time!” Mikey certainly seemed excited. Donatello on the other hand…Parties weren’t exactly his scene. Or at least, judging by all of the movies and shows he had seen, parties probably weren’t for him.

“I-I’m not so sure…”

“Oh come on, Don, how many times are we gonna get the opportunity to go to a human party?” Raph asked. “Even Leo is down for it. Right, Leo?”

“Raph and Mikey have a point. It’s once in a lifetime.” Leo smiled a little, secretly excited. But of course, he couldn’t let his brothers know that.

“Alright, fine.” Donnie gave in. “Let’s go to a party.”

***

The music in your apartment was so loud you could barely hear yourself think. You weren’t much of a party animal, but your sister sure was. You sat in the middle of the living room, book in hand as you tried to drown out the noise. It was an impossible task to say the very least.

There was a knock at the door. A very loud one at that. You got up and opened it, revealing four guys you had never seen. And by the looks of them, none of them had ever been to a party, or at least, not one like this. Their faces were full of awe and wonder as they looked around.

“Can I help you?”

“We’re here for the party, brah!” A short blond boy wearing an orange shirt exclaimed.

“We’re friends of your Uncle Casey.” Explained a brunette in a blue shirt. “I hope it’s not too much trouble. We can always-”

“Come on in. We’ve already got fifty kids here, four more aren’t going to hurt.” You jabbed a thumb behind you. “Pizza and drinks are in the kitchen, the bathroom is down the hall.”

“Thank you.” Said the one in the blue shirt.

“Don’t mention it.”

You returned to your spot by the window and cracked open your book once again. It was a few minutes later that you noticed you weren’t alone anymore. The boy in the purple shirt had taken a seat beside you.

“A kindred spirit?” You asked, slipping your bookmark into the pages.

“Yeah. Not much for parties.” He smiled shyly and pushed his glasses up his nose.

“Me either, but my sister is a party animal.”

“I think she’s over there dancing with my brother.”

“Yeah, looks like it.” You looked over to the dance floor, where the boy in the orange shirt was dancing with your party-girl sister. “Why my parents ever leave us home alone is a mystery to me.”

“But your uncle knew about the party.”

“Who do you think buys the pizza?” You laughed. “God, and he calls himself a cop…”

The two of you chatted most of the night, talking about your favorite books and movies, and it turned out that the two of you had a lot more in common than you would have thought. You told him about the book club you belonged to and the writing club you had found at the library. He was kind and funny and the look in his brown eyes sent your heart racing.

Four hours seemed to fly by.

At 11:55, his watch beeped, and he looked down at it, eyes wide.

“I-I have to go.” He fumbled to get up.

“Really? It’s only-”

“Help me find my brothers.” Donnie looked around the room. Leo was already on his way over with Raph in tow. “Where’s Mikey?”

“MIKEY!” Leo shouted. The short blond jogged over to the group.

“Do we have to leave? The party’s just getting started!” He whined.

“Let’s go. Now, Mikey.” Leo ordered. You watched Donnie with sad eyes. He waved apologetically before making his way out the door with the others. Once they were gone, you went back to your spot. It was then that you noticed the glasses sitting on the chair. He had left them here. You grabbed them and ran to the door and then to the end of the hallway, but it appeared the boys were already long gone.

Now you had an excuse to find him…

***

Donnie was scrolling through social media the next day, monitoring as he usually did when he came across a picture of glasses that looked just like his…the ones he had lost last night.

It read: Seeking My Dork in Shining Armor. He left his glasses at my house last night. He’s got brown eyes, super tall, has legs for days, and he’s the smartest guy you’ll ever meet. If found, please contact me. Thanks!

Donnie’s heart did a back flip. And then a front flip. And then he slammed his laptop shut, earning a look from Mikey across the couch.

“What’s the matter, bro?”

“I need to call Casey.”

Casey came over within the hour.

“What’s the matter, Donnie? What’s wrong?”

“Look.” He showed Casey the post, waiting for him to finish reading with wide eyes.

“What’s the problem? Sounds like (Y/N) likes you.”

“I’m a TURTLE, Casey! That’s the problem!”

“Is it a problem? Is it really?”

“YES! I can’t just go get my glasses back. I can’t just be her boyfriend! She’d see me and run for the hills!”

“I don’t think so.”

“How do you know?”

“Because she’s right there and she hasn’t screamed yet.” Casey pointed to where you were standing in the doorway of Donnie’s lab. “Saw her little ad this morning and decided to bring her by to return them.”

Donnie looked at you. And then at Casey. And then back at you. How had this happened?

“Oh my God,” you took a few steps closer and looked up at the tall terrapin. “You’re even taller like this.”

“W-well, yes, I suppose I…am…That’s all you have to say about all of this?”

“Oh, my bad, here are your glasses.” You held them out to him. He was shocked. You hadn’t screamed, you hadn’t run, and the only thing that seemed to faze you was his height. He could get used to this. “If you’re waiting for some big reaction, it isn’t coming. The whole turtle thing doesn’t bug me.”

“It doesn’t.”

“No, it doesn’t. I still like you.”

“Y-you like me.”

“I thought that much was obvious.” You smiled.

“I-I like you too. A lot.”

“Perfect. Do you have anything planned this afternoon?”

“Not anymore.”

Your Parents Likely Didn’t Do As Good Of A Job As They Think They Did

So it’s fairly common for parents of disabled children to have an attitude of something along the lines of “I did everything right, why didn’t they turn out right.”  This can have different tones and intensities of course. 

Now as said child, it’s very easy to pick up on this (sometimes its unsaid) and feel shame because of it. 

Now, while that’s the natural response, it’s silly.

First off, you’re parents likely didn’t do nearly as good of a job as they thought they did.  They’re idea of “good parenting” was likely buy you shit and take you to extracurriculars.  A combination of giving you the things they really missed out on as kids, and programming by companies trying to sell them shit. 

The thing is, of course, children need a lot more.  There are now studies showing that controlling, emotionally distant parents are the most common cause of anxiety in children.  Seeing as autism generally runs in families, your parents likely had trouble expressing emotion.  The more recent generations of parents have also been far more controlling than past generations, in the sense that they don’t let children go out and make mistakes, because they’re afraid.  This is often compounded when they start believing all the bullshit about having a disabled child. 

Also, there’s all kinds of new studies showing that feeling socially disconnected is the quickest way to fuck someone up.  Many parents and “professionals” will focus on “what’s wrong” with the child, continually trying to get them to improve.

The problem is of course, the child may not be able to improve, and telling someone again and again to do something (usually in a way that implies it should be easy) is of course going to make them feel like a useless piece of shit, which is going to make them feel like they don’t belong. 

Also, you have a disability, and as far as we can tell, you were born with it. It’s going to cause issues.  

None of this is intentional of course, but you don’t have to feel like it’s all your fault, cause it’s not.

Beauty and the Beast - M u s k e t e e r s ! A U

Belle is a Lady serving in the Queen’s court ever since her father painted the acclaimed portrait of the newly wedded King and Queen. Smart beyond her time and adventurous, Belle feels trapped in the restrictions of life at court.

Adam de  Villeneuve is the snobby, arrogant son of a noble, who fell from grace and ultimately lost all lands and titles as well as his head after his involvement in an assassination plot against the King got exposed. The King however couldn’t bare to see Adam, whom he grew up with, ending up begging in the dirty, dangerous streets of Paris. So he gave his childhood friend commission to serve with his Musketeers. To say Adam’s ego hasn’t quite caught up with his new living situation might be a slight understatement. His hot temper isn’t helping either.

When the kind young woman and the brash Musketeer first meet, it’s not exactly love at first sight. Quite the opposite, really. But when Belle stumbles upon a sinister plot by the Cardinal that puts the life of her Queen and all of France in grave danger they reluctantly work together. And along the way find that maybe they have a lot more in common than they thought…

The Night We Met

Dean x Reader

Summary:  A bar, two strangers, the beginning of something new…

Warnings:  Mention of suicide, angst.

Theme Song: The Night We Met - Cover by The Running Mates

Word Count: 1200+

The ice cubes were melting into your empty glass, the second of the night; a dull sight to many, but boredom was the last thing on your mind. So you kept staring at their inevitable doom, happening right there within your hand. A song was playing in the background, but you could barely hear it, too focused on the past, on a memory that kept replaying itself. A sweater in your hand - a smile - a door closing.

“Tough night?”

His voice came from nowhere, pausing the past, but you didn’t move, not even glanced his way.

After some time, you replied. “Yeah…”

“I’ve had a few of those,” he said. And then, “It gets better.”

If Only

Nesta waited until everyone was asleep to sneak out of her bedroom window. The house was quiet, and as she opened the window, welcoming a cool breeze into her bedroom, it made a slight squeak from the hinges, but otherwise it was silent.

She did this every night—waited exactly one hour after she heard her father go to bed to leave. If he ever caught her, she was dead.

But she had to. She had to see him, and it wasn’t possible while her father was watching her.

Nesta slowly stepped across the roof outside her window and made her way towards the tall tree that was just big enough for her to grab and climb down. She kept quiet as she hopped to the ground and wiped her dirty knees off. At this time of night, no one else was awake, or so she hoped.

Prompt: Friends to lovers au (part of a requested set)
Member: Joshua (svt)
Genre: Fluff with a lil bit of lowkey angst
A/N: Finally done with this set!! I can’t believe it took me this long to finish but I kept getting carried away and making them at least eight or nine pages long ffs,, I may have written half of this while lowkey partially asleep and it’s probably riddled with typos but I’m still kinda proud of it

  • Joshua and you became friends in your second year of college, thanks to plenty of shared classes
  • It was one of those friendships that started because you needed to partner up on a project one day, and neither of you really knew anyone in the class but you guys had seen each other around
  • So you both just silently agreed to work together and he moved his seat to the empty one next to yours and you exchanged numbers 
  • And from there a friendship blossomed through a mutual desire to not interact with other human beings 
  • But it was actually a pretty awesome friendship
  • It began with the two of you poured over textbooks and tablet screens in his dorm room, his roommate out at some party while the two of you worked on the project
  • Only to have it turn to a procrastination session when you notice he has a poster on his wall relating to your favorite TV show
  • Instead of listening to the sound of pencils scratching on notebook paper, you two wound up listening to each other rant about your favorite characters long into the night
  • You only left when the man he shared his room with (a boy you would later know as Seokmin) was dragged in by a few of his friends, drunk off his ass
  • But even then, after you had settled into your pajamas and Joshua had gotten his roommate to sleep, you found yourself curled up under your blankets as you rapidly typed responses to his messages about the newer episodes 
  • The two of you went from project partners to season finale buddies to just plain best friends 
  • Joshua is such a sweetheart, but that doesn’t mean he’s not a total goofball
  • Like one minute he’s holding the door out for you and the next minute he’s waiting for you to take a sip of your drink before making some meme pun that makes you almost snort milk tea out of your nose 
  • He always listens to you and asks questions and never makes you feel ignored or misunderstood 
  • Plus he always heeds your every recommendation, be it for a new mystery show to a freshly-debuted band to a tiny hole-in-the-wall restaurant 
  • He’s just,, such a good guy 
  • You would be lying if you hadn’t said that you had moments where you wondered if you two could ever be more than friends
  • You’d have to be crazy to not have those kinds of thoughts about someone who made you feel as supported and happy as Joshua did 
  • Plus there was no denying that he was attractive,,, hell he was more than attractive the boy was STUNNING
  • But honestly you pushed your romantic feelings far away for several reasons 
  • For one thing, you and Joshua made a great pair!! But like,, as friends!! There was always a worry that you guys could potentially mess up your friendship if you dated
  • You knew it was a pretty common worry and that a lot of the time when friends began to date they would stay together,, but you also knew that a lot of the time it just felt too weird or a messy breakup would happen or something like that would cause both the relationship and friendship to end 
  • You also just didn’t think that Joshua liked you??
  • He didn’t treat you especially different from his other friends,, and he had a lot of them,,
  • There was never any flirting or anything of the sort, and although he would on occasion hug you or anything, there was nothing necessarily romantic about his touches
  • Thirdly,,, you just weren’t looking for a serious relationship
  • You felt like Joshua would be the kind of guy where if you dated him and it worked out, he would be the person to settle in with for the long haul 
  • He’d be the kind of person where if a relationship didn’t end up awkward because you were friends before, you just wouldn’t break up with unless something seriously bad happened
  • And that’s just not what you were looking for right now?? 
  • Like,,, it’s college!! A lot of people have serious relationships during that time yeah but a lot of people don’t and you were choosing to belong to that second category
  • Uni doesn’t have to be where you start dating your soulmate,, it can also be about just having fun and dating lots of different kinds of people and experiencing new things and studying and hanging out with friends and just,,, not worrying about that kind of commitment 
  • The only long-term commitment you wanted to think about working on right now was your major lmao 
  • You enjoyed going on blind and group dates and going out to clubs to occasionally find a one night stand or just new people to hang out with for the night 
  • Casual relationships that didn’t last long were easy and fun and neither party felt any hard feelings when they ended 
  • Plus they didn’t distract you from your studies or any of your friends?? And they didn’t prevent you from making any decisions about your future or trying new things in the name of “I don’t want to be away from my S/O” or “I don’t think my S/O would like that and I don’t want to make them sad/uncomfortable/whatever” 
  • Lots of your friends outside of The Noisy Boys (aka Seventeen) were the same as you,, hell it’s college a LOT of people were doing the same thing as you 
  • To sum it up: you thought that if you dated Joshua, you wouldn’t want it to be a casual fling that ended quickly, and you just didn’t want a serious relationship at the moment
  • It wasn’t that you intentionally wanted to put him on the backburner or save him or anything like that, not in the slightest!!
  • You just didn’t want to ruin your relationship with Josh because it was really important to you 
  • So you dodged any possibilities of a crush forming on Joshua
  • Sometimes you felt that yes, you were probably just denying your feelings,,, but honestly you weren’t ready to confront them so you brushed off that thought too
  • But on Joshua’s end,, he had long since realized his feelings for you
  • They hadn’t developed the instant he saw you, it wasn’t some cheesy “love at first sight” kind of deal
  • Like you were cute yeah there was no doubting that
  • But he fell for you through late night study sessions, your face illuminated by the dull glow of his shitty Ikea desk lamp, a concentrated look decorating it as your lips pressed together and your eyebrows furrowed as you thought hard about an answer 
  • Through afternoon milk tea runs, the two of you finally finding the perfect cafe near campus after many failed attempts with others that served crappy boba, the sun shining outside despite the chill to their as you two sat in the adorable little building that played pleasant indie music
  • Through bakery visits where you persuaded him to pay for you, him acting like he didn’t want to when deep down he knew there was no way in hell he was going to let you pay for those soft and fluffy bread buns you loved so much when they made your face get that happy little smile it always did when you took a bite and also made you do that happy little wiggle in your chair 
  • Through late night conversations through texts and calls that lasted way too late and ended with the two of you nagging each other to just go to sleep already, him being acutely aware that he wouldn’t stay up that late for anyone else
  • There were a million reasons and ways that his feelings for you developed,, 
  • They didn’t happen in an instant, they happened in a way that was slow and comfortable until he realized that they ran much deeper than he expected, that you were the first thing on his mind when the sun tugged him away from the land of the dead in the morning, and that he didn’t quite mind those feelings
  • He knew you didn’t want a serious relationship, and he had a feeling your romantic feelings for him only extended so far as “maybe someday, but not today”
  • So he didn’t pressure you, he didn’t make it clear he liked you, he didn’t do anything of the sort 
  • He kept his feelings to himself and focused on just enjoying your company and being near you
  • It didn’t make him exactly happy when he saw you walking around with someone else, even if your relationships didn’t last long
  • And it certainly wasn’t enjoyable for him when you told him you couldn’t hang out because you were going on a date
  • But he was at your side, and when you gave him a winning smile, or snort-laughed at one of his jokes, or leaned on him during long subway rides back to campus at one in the morning, or opened up to him about something that was bothering you, he found that it was all worth it to him
  • He knew that someday it was going to be too much for him, that he was going to need a definite answer from you 
  • Because holding his feelings in seemed like a feat meant for a demigod sometimes, and whenever he watched you getting ready for a date, all he wanted to do was wrap his arms around your waist and press his chest against your back and be able to call you his, because you had life in your eyes and your name engraved into his heart and at the end of the day, you were everything he wanted 
  • But for now, he just hoped that the day would come when you were ready for it to, and he enjoyed every moment he got with you
  • Time passed by like this, you avoiding your own feelings and any possible complications that could come with them, and Joshua taking a vow of silence when it came to his own 
  • It wasn’t until you guys were in your fourth year that things began to change for you 
  • Things weren’t well in your family,, your aunt was rather sick and her son (your cousin) lived overseas and couldn’t afford to move back and take care of her
  • No one else really could either, everyone had jobs and schooling that they were working on desperately in order to keep themselves and her afloat 
  • Your family found themselves working harder so they could help pay her medical bills but,, that left her alone during the day 
  • You were almost done with your credits and trying hard to work something out with the university so you could go back home for a while to take care of her 
  • After all you really loved your aunt,, she had always been a big part of your life, from looking after you while your parents worked as a kid to being one of the main supporters of your life goal that you were working towards in uni
  • Joshua found the two of you spending less time having TV marathons and study sessions and visiting parties with friends and more nights where you would stay up just,,, talking
  • He could see that you were tired and stressed, going from the happy and carefree college student who was just having fun in between classes and studying to someone who was anxious about what was going to happen in your family and stayed up late trying to persuade the university to give you wiggle room while studying 
  • He found himself holding you close when you began to fall apart at the seams, moments of being overwhelmed more common with every passing day 
  • You stayed at his apartment (one he had snagged halfway through his third year and shared with a couple of the boys) more often than not, looking to him for comfort at the end of the day and being too tired to go home when you finally felt better
  • It was November when the university finally relented and agreed to let you finish your schooling up in your hometown starting in December 
  • You had nearly cried in relief, thanking the administrators (or whomever) a million times with tears in your eyes before dashing off to tell Josh the great news
  • Only to stop short when he answered the door, realization that this meant you would have to part with him for the first time in years hitting you square in the chest
  • And with this realization came the feelings you had been pushing back for years
  • After all,,, who had been the one who had supported you the most the past years? 
  • Who had been the one you ran to at the end of the day when you needed a warm embrace to hold you close? Who had been the one who made sure you ate despite all the stress going on in your life? 
  • Who had been the one who had read your feelings with ease and seemed to know what you needed before you could even think to say it? Who had been the one to help you write those emails to the university to make sure you had the most persuasive sounding argument that you could form? 
  • Who had been the one who had been there since the day you heard about your aunt? Who had been there the days before that one too? Who had always picked up the phone when you needed him? Who had let you lean on him for support when you got a bit too tipsy? Who had listened to all your problems and made sure your worries were kept to a minimum so you could continue to relish in your youth as much as possible? Who had helped you study countless times?
  • It had always been Joshua, the boy who was looking at you with a tilted head and concerned eyes after seeing how red and glassy your own were and how disheveled your sweater looked
  • He pulled you inside, his hand on your wrist gentle and sending tingles that went up your arm and straight to your chest, and sat you down on the couch
  • You took a deep breath before explaining that the university had at last agreed to you finishing up your studies back home and that it meant you were going to leave
  • But Joshua just smiled and told you that he was happy that it was finally happening, only to look a bit surprised when you replied “But I don’t want to leave you”
  • You were quick to add “Of course I want to go take care of my aunt, and of course I’m going to do it, but,,, we haven’t been apart since we met. Yeah we’ve gone to visit family and stuff, but you were always close and were never away from me for long”
  • Joshua’s eyes filled with understanding and a bittersweet feeling as he took a deep breath, hugging you close 
  • Your hands grabbed the back of his shirt tightly, not ready to let go, and that was when Joshua knew that he had to finally tell you 
  • “Listen,, (Y/N),,,” he began and met your eyes when you pulled back just enough to look at him “I know this isn’t the best time, and I’m really not expecting anything to happen, especially right now but… I have feelings for you”
  • You could feel your heart swell up his words, a wave of happiness surging in you before it was followed by slight disappointment 
  • “I like you too Joshua, even if I tried to push those feelings away for a long time, but…”
  • Joshua sighed and pushed his forehead against yours, holding it there as he continued looking into your eyes
  • “You have to go back home and focus on your family right now, not date me,” he murmured and you nodded a little, a troubled look on your face
  • But Joshua cupped your cheek in one hand and rubbed under your eye, as if he was trying to rub away the unhappy expression resting on your face 
  • “It’s okay (Y/N), I understand, I just wanted to make things clear before you left,” he stated and pressed a gentle kiss to your forehead before continuing. “Go focus on helping your family and finish up school in your hometown, maybe find a steady job for a while. We can text and call whenever you’re free okay?”
  • “Okay,” you agreed, lacing one hand in his. “When things are better, promise me that we’ll find each other again”
  • “I promise,” he nods
  • You guys spend that night pressed together in bed, soft words of affection and gentle kisses being exchanged
  • He tells you that whenever you got ready for a date in front of him, he had always longed to have you be his, and you tell him that you hadn’t been ready to date him but you always at least somewhat knew that you liked him
  • You both reminisce on some of your favorite memories, and find that a lot of them aren’t from times when you went to nearly once-in-a-lifetime concerts or had to fake-date for a day to ward off a girl who liked him at the end of second year, but were just simple little moments where you two were comfortable and alone together 
  • It’s a really sweet night, the two of you acting like a couple for the night only
  • In the weeks that follow, you focus on setting things up with various teachers and packing up and spending every free moment with either Joshua, your friends, and/or the boys 
  • When you two were alone together, you would sometimes find you or Joshua stealing kisses from one another, but you tried to avoid doing too many couple things as much as possible to make it easier once you had to leave 
  • When December came, Joshua helped you move into your aunt’s spare room, and the two of you exchanged a long kiss and agreed to talk whenever it wasn’t too hard to do so, and he was gone
  • You hadn’t wanted him to stay very long or have a drawn-out goodbye with him, worried that something like that would just make it hard to leave him behind 
  • December became a busy month for you to say the very least 
  • For one thing, you had to find a part time job that would take some of the pressure off the rest of the family in terms of paying for things, but that would also leave you with plenty of time to care of your aunt and do your schoolwork
  • Your aunt’s house wasn’t in the best of shape too,,, so you found yourself watching videos and googling repairs that you had to make, not wanting to spend money on a repairman or plumber if you could help it
  • You also had to cook a lot of meals for you and your aunt, and a lot of the you found yourself cooking meals in advance for when you knew you were going to have a busy couple of days
  • December also brought snow, which meant you had to clear snow out of pathways and the like to make it easy when your aunt had to go to a doctor’s appointment, and you had to find cheap ways to make the house a little warmer so the heater would run all the time and jack up the bills
  • It was a month that required a lot of your attention and patience, trying to find a pattern that worked 
  • It wasn’t until mid-January that you finally had the right routine set up, and you found yourself realizing you had barely texted Joshua since you had moved back home
  • And as time continued forward, although you talked to him a bit more, it still wasn’t for very long and it didn’t happen very frequently either
  • Because yes you had a routine down, but it was a busy one, and left you feel too tired to keep your eyes open for very long when the moon appeared in the sky and your aunt was safely tucked into her own bed
  • Joshua was more than understanding though, and you couldn’t help but feel grateful every time you found yourself looking at a text asking if you had eaten yet or giving you encouragement to make it through a particularly rough day or telling you not to worry about talking to him because he just wanted you to get some rest
  • He wanted to talk to you yes, and (though he wasn’t going to tell you because he didn’t want you to feel guilty) he felt terribly lonely without the level of attention he used to get from you 
  • He knew you were working hard and had a million responsibilities, and that this was something you needed to do 
  • When graduation came around, you both had hoped you would be able to return to campus for the ceremony
  • But sadly, your aunt’s condition briefly got worse right around that time
  • So instead of you going, you had to stay behind and admit her into a hospital 
  • It wasn’t for very long though, just a few days and she was feeling better again and you were able to bring her home
  • She had insisted she was fine and that you should go back, but you could hear her coughing late at night and could see how much pain she was in, so you refused, unwilling to leave her alone in this state
  • You had called him to tell him about it, and that’s when he decided to surprise you with a visit 
  • It was only a couple days after your graduation, the air warmer than it had been in a while when you were called from your place where you were cooking lunch to the door, where you had heard knocks being rapped against it 
  • You opened the door only to gasp in surprise at the familiar face smiling back at you 
  • Before you could gather your wits again and ask what he was doing there, Joshua placed a graduation cap snugly on your head, a fond look in his eyes as he spoke
  • “Congratulations on your graduation (Y/N). You’ve worked hard.”
  • You felt tears spring up into your eyes at his words, touched by the gesture and longing to touch him again
  • You launched yourself into his arms,making him laugh a little but he hugged you tight all the same 
  • You stayed like that for a long time until your aunt cleared her throat from her bedroom doorway, a sly look on her face as she raised her eyebrow
  • You introduced Joshua to her again, the two only having met momentarily when you had initially moved in there
  • Joshua stayed in your room that night, the two of you overwhelmed with joy at the fact that you could finally hold each other again 
  • You couldn’t help the feeling of love that squeezed at your heart when you opened your eyes in the morning to see his gentle features facing you, bathed in morning sunlight as he dozed
  • He was more than happy to be woken by you pressing a million and a half kisses to his face 
  • The two of you weren’t really able to go far from the house, the town pretty small as it was and you not feeling comfortable with the idea of leaving your aunt alone for too long 
  • But you showed him your favorite little cafe/bakery combo, the place small and owned by an old woman and her granddaughter, the latter of the two a few months pregnant and both very friendly and kind 
  • And you showed him a playground you had spent a lot time in as a kid and your childhood house that you had grown up in before your parents moved to the city for better job opportunities when you went off to college 
  • When the two of you were at the house, he spent a lot of time getting to know your aunt, his kind and gentlemanly personality winning her over in an instant 
  • She often found herself watching from the other room as the two of you stood in the kitchen cooking or cleaning together, him flicking water at you or making a teasing comment that had you giggling, and smiling to herself at how well you two seemed to suit each other
  • Needless to say she approved of the relationship LOL
  • It was only four days into his visit when he dropped the bomb
  • “I want to move here” he told you, and you nearly dropped the wooden spoon you were using to stir the soup with in surprise 
  • He was quick to continue “I don’t want to be apart from you ever again. I can find a job, it’s not a big deal. It’ll be easier if you have someone else to help you, and we’ve both graduated so we don’t have to worry about college and we can just focus on helping your aunt. When she’s better, we can move in together or something, I don’t know, I just know I don’t want to leave your side anymore, it’s too hard”
  • He looked at you with hopeful, desperate eyes and you felt yourself melt at the look he was giving you
  • You felt the same way though, you really didn’t want to be separated from him anymore, especially now that you had been enjoying life by his side again the past four days 
  • So after a conversation with your aunt, Joshua found himself spending the next two weeks travelling from your town to your old university town and back to move his things in 
  • Having Joshua around really did make things better 
  • You didn’t have to worry about leaving your aunt alone anymore because of work or errands, you weren’t the only one working on crappy diy repairs that only lasted like a month at the most or trying to pull income into the household, you had someone who was happy to help you in any way possible
  • Joshua found a job that wasn’t super glamorous, but paid well considering he was a recent college graduate boy with minimal experience and needed to be home often to help you out 
  • When December rolled around, it wasn’t as hectic as it had been the previous year, and you found yourself having a few laughs as you taught Joshua the ropes of dealing with the house in the winter 
  • Joshua just became a,, positive force
  • You two weren’t able to to do things like go on lots of dates or have cheesy anniversary celebrations (Joshua told you he considered the day he showed up on your doorstep with the graduation cap the first day of your relationship and you couldn’t help but agree)
  • But you were still together, you still laughed and kissed and held hands, you still fell asleep pressed closed together every night, you still had in-house movie dates using your laptop in bed, you still got milk tea together once a week
  • You were just,, happy with him,, like yes you still had the stress of worrying about your aunt and about what you were going to do after you were able to move out, but Joshua was always there with a calming touch and whispers of encouragement
  • When March rolled around, your aunt’s condition began to improve rapidly, much to you, your family, and Joshua’s relief
  • She began to get stronger and smile more often, though she insisted that last part was because the love between you and Joshua was so infectious that it made her happy too
  • Cheesy grandma
  • Not only that, but she was able to leave the house more often, and went on walks and sometimes even helped you run errands in less than a month
  • She made fast progress, complaining that she had been resting for two damn years, even before you had shown up to help her, and she was tired of having you care for her 
  • It was early June when the doctor’s declared that she was out of the woods and could officially start living on her own again
  • You and Joshua wound up staying for another month, just in case, but she spent the entire time nagging at the two of you to just find your own place already 
  • You two did wind up finding an apartment in a small city not far from your hometown, close enough to be able to visit often but far enough away to be independant 
  • And as the two of you build a blanket nest on your first night in the new place, you found yourselves looking at each other with a sort of overwhelming feeling of bliss
  • It seemed like so long ago that the two of you were pairing up for a project together because you had recognized no one else in the class, and it felt as though so much had happened
  • But now you two were together, living together on your own with your hands clasped together tightly, confident that this thing that you both had was forever
  • And as you whispered that you loved him, feeling him smile and whisper the words back against your lips before you kissed, you were certain that you would never have it any other way 
The Story of Miss Black//Part One

WARNING: MENTIONS OF SELF HARM, BLOOD, AND A PICTURE OF SCARS

Y/N Black was seen as flawless, but if you looked closer, you could see her breaking. The problem was, nobody looked close enough. Not until it was too late. I suppose you could say that it was many things that caused her to do what she did. Everyone thought that the death of her mother was the main contributor. I don’t think anyone really knows the exact reason. Only Y/N herself. Not even Teddy Lupin, her best friend knew what was going on.

Slytherin House had just won their first match of the season, and every member of the house was elated but at the Ravenclaws expense. Y/N, the seeker, had caught the snitch within the first half an hour of the game, which was great considering how cold and damp it was outside. Y/N followed her cheering team mates to the changing rooms where she showered and changed into warm, dry clothes. It was lunchtime, but Y/N wasn’t hungry. She never was as of late. With a frown on her face, she made her way back to her Common Room in the dungeons, hoping she wouldn’t run into anyone that would care where she was going. Especially not Teddy. Luckily, she didn’t.

#The Slytherin Common Room was empty. Everyone was in the Great Hall eating. Y/N went up to her dorm room and perched herself on the edge of her pristine bed. Why does everything have to be so hard, even when it’s easy? She had thoughts like this more often than she cared to admit, and it usually resulted in a lot of salty tears and blood-stained sheets. Y/N stood up and went over to her trunk. After sorting through clothes, books, and many other miscellaneous objects she found what she was looking for. The little wooden box that contained her contraband. She opened it and took out the cold, metal razor blades that she had bought with her from home and took them into the bathroom. Y/N sat where she always did; the edge of the claw-footed bath tub. With tears already streaming down her face she rolled up the sleeve of her jumper and put the blade against her skin in a place that was free of scars. Not that there were many left on her forearm now. Her skin was littered with scars. Battle wounds, she liked to call them. The skin finally broke, just like another part of her. A drop of blood dripped down her arm and onto the white tile. Not that Y/N noticed. She was too immersed in memories of much happier times. The pain started to ease off so she took the blade to her arm again, just below her newest cut and made another, much deeper one. That, she thought bitterly, is just what you deserve.

T H E  N E X T  M O R N I N G
Y/N Black sat in her usual seat at the Slytherin table. Her coffee was black and her toast was dry. And you know what else? Her arm was stinging. Not that she felt it. Every other emotion was taking over instead, distracting her from the pain. Like when you’re trying to save someone and the adrenaline in your body is so high that you don’t even notice you’ve been wounded. That was the perfect description of how she felt.

If you looked at her you wouldn’t even think that something was wrong. That was the whole point. She didn’t want people to notice how she was feeling because then she’d have to dump it all on them. It had gotten to the point where she had started ignoring her letters from her father Sirius, and then ignoring the ones from Hermione, Ginny, and even Remus, who were all worried about her. Y/N was just about to refill her goblet when Teddy came and plonked himself onto the empty seat next to her.

“Black,” He said with a curious expression, “I just got a letter from my dad asking if you were okay. Apparently, you’ve ignored every single letter from London.”
I looked at Teddy with a stony expression.
“You should change your hair back to blue,” She said while standing up, “It looks shit when it’s pink. And tell everyone to leave me alone.”
And with the retort, she sashayed out of the Great Hall leaving the last shred of hope she had for herself behind along with her best friend and her half finished cup of coffee.

Y/N was sitting on the bank next to the Black Lake. When she first sat down three hours ago, there was no rain. Just clouds and mist. Now the skies had opened up and the rain was falling like there would be no tomorrow. For Y/N, this was the ideal way to spend a Sunday. Alone. Just her and her thoughts. Her thoughts were a little dangerous.
What if I drowned in that lake.
Would anyone care?
What if I ran away and started over somewhere new. In a place that nobody knew my name.
Y/N stood up around five hours later. It was dark now and if she got caught outside she would be in detention for a month. She decided to take a bath when she got back to warm herself up. She always took baths in the prefect’s bathroom, putting a spell on the door so she could be alone. It was one of the only things left that truely made her happy. That and rain.
Once back inside the castle, she began making her way back to her Common Room to get a towel and some pajamas. She turned a corner and ran came face to face with Professor McGonagall. She looked very distressed indeed.

“Miss Black!” She hissed, “We’ve been looking for you for hours! Why on earth are you dripping wet? Come to my office,” She said, “You can dry off, have a hot drink, and then tell me and your visitors why you haven’t spoken to them since the first of September.”

Oh shit, was not nearly a good enough phrase to describe how Y/N felt as she as marched through the halls of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Sirius Black and Remus Lupin were stood in McGonagall’s office worried sick. The door suddenly burst open causing them both to jump a little. When Sirius saw his daughter he rushed forward and pulled her into a tight hug. Remus Lupin’s shoulders relaxed a little when he saw her.

“Bloody hell Y/N!” He took his daughter by the shoulder and looked her in the eyes. “Why haven’t you answered any of our letters? What’s going on?”
“Dad,” Y/N whispered, “I don’t want to be here anymore.”

A flicker of hurt flashed across Sirius’ face which then turned to confusion. He led his daughter over to a couch and sat her down. Remus sat next to Sirius and turned so he was looking at Y/N. McGonagall sat behind her desk wondering why on earth such a talented young witch was so upset.

“What do you mean darling?” Sirius asked softly. “Is someone bullying you? Because if they are I swear in Godric’s name-”
“Padfoot.” Remus interjected, “Calm down.” He diverted his gaze to his best friend’s daughter whom he had come to love as his own. “If someone isn’t being very nice to you then you should tell us and we can help.”
“It’s not that.” Y/N said looking at the carpet. “I just haven’t been very happy, that’s all.”
“But why?” Sirius was getting very worried now.
“I can’t explain it to you. It’s like trying to explain music to someone who is deaf. And if I told you one thing, I’d have to tell you everything, and that would be nothing but horrible for everyone.”
“You can’t say something like that and expect me to just forget about it and go home. We’re not leaving until you tell us why you’ve been ignoring us for months.”
“Do you even care? Honestly?”
Remus looked shocked. “Of course we care! We’re family. All of us. We love you and don’t want to see you hurting.”
“Well, it’s too late for that. I’ve been hurting for months and months. It’s all just been building up. All these thoughts and emotions. I’ve been carrying them on my back and I don’t even know if it’s all mine to carry. Nothing feels right anymore.”

Y/N was crying and her dad didn’t know why or what to say to make her stop. Remus stood up and knelt in front of her, lifting her chin with his hands.

“Y/N,” Moony said, “When I was your age this was exactly how I felt. Every day was just like another mountain I had to climb. I hated myself and who I was and I felt like I was a burden to everyone around me.” Remus rolled up on of his jumper sleeves, revealing lots of scars. They looked self-inflicted. After all, Y/N would know. “Your dad and I need you to know that you aren’t alone in this.”

A tear escaped Sirius Black’s eye as Y/N rolled up her robe sleeve to reveal many scars and cuts. Some old and some new. There were a fair few, let’s just say that.

“Y/N.” Sirius choked, “Why didn’t you come to me with this? Why did you let yourself go through this alone?”
“Because going through this alone was the only way to keep everyone around me happy.”
“But you weren’t happy.” Remus said, “And your happiness matters too.”
“Does it?” She asked
“Of course it does!” Sirius said, “It’s the only thing that matters. You’re beautiful and we all love you more than words can say. You don’t have to tell us everything right away but we’re here for you. Everyone is. And Minnie will always be here to talk.”
“Your father and Remus are right Y/N.” Professor McGonagall said, “We’re all here for you. You shouldn’t have had to feel this way.”
“And Teddy,” Remus said with a smile. “He loves you more than all of us put together, so you should talk to him. Okay?”
“Okay.”

Remus and Sirius embraced Y/N, telling her how loved she was. Obviously, this wouldn’t all be over yet. She knew that. She knew that she’d have to sit and tell someone everything eventually and that someone would have to be watching her to make sure it didn’t happen again. Y/N said goodbye to Moony and Padfoot and went to find Teddy. There would be a meeting between the adults now to talk about how to proceed, but for now, at least, some of the weight had been lifted from Miss Black’s shoulders.

Teddy and Y/N had fallen asleep wrapped up in each other’s embrace. The pair had cried as Y/N told her best friend the story of how she had been living her life over the past couple of months, and after many cups of hot chocolate, a plate of cookies, and a good talk, they fell asleep.

Little did anyone know, this was only the beginning of Y/N Black’s story, and in the coming months, things would only get harder.

A/N: The reason I wanted to write this fic is that recently this same exact thing has happened to me and I needed to express how I felt through my writing, and honestly, I feel like a lot of others need this too. There will be another part to this, maybe even two, and feedback would be greatly appreciated.
