Notes: angst, mentions of abuse, swearing, flirting, fluff, Bucky is a hopeless romantic.
A/N: Second date with heartfelt conversations.
“So, you didn’t tell her where you’re taking her? Or should I say, how?” Steve snickers and rolls his eyes when he sees Bucky’s mischievous grin.
“How I’m taking her? Really, the mouth on you, Rogers..” Bucky grins triumphantly when Steve’s cheeks turn pink and he rolls his eyes again.
“You know what I mean, jerk”
“Yeah, yeah, punk” Bucky snickers. “No, I haven’t told her that I’m picking her up on my motorcycle. But I told her to not bother with her hair and I texted her earlier to wear pants, just in case she was planning to wear a skirt or somethin’”
Steve snorts when Bucky makes a disappointed sigh.
“What?” he chuckles and takes a sip of his own drink, “I like her in skirts”

A/N: Tags are closed. Cue the drama. PS - some of your comments on the last chapter had me screeching, I love ‘em!
You jumped as your boyfriend’s head appeared above your shoulder, hovering over you and surveying your spread of polish and paper towels on the coffee table. You turned and threw a smile in his direction. “Painting my nails.”
Dean scrunched up his face and leaned down to pick up a bottle of metallic, dusty rose nail polish, spinning it in his fingers thoughtfully. “Why? You’re a hunter, you know it’s just gonna get messed up.”
“I know, but I like it. It relaxes me.”
Dean threw himself down behind you at that, settling his legs on either side of your hips and pressing his chest to your back. “I thought I relaxed you,” Dean whispered, breath brushing your ear as his rough hand slid down your arm.
Your eyes fluttered shut and you leaned back into Dean, savoring your boyfriend’s touch and getting lost in his sent. Then you got hit with a whiff of that oh so chemically nail polish smell and managed to snap yourself out of your Dean-induced daze. “You do,” you said in hushed tones, “but I still wanna finish this, so stop distracting me!”
The hand on your arm rescinded and wound around your waist instead, Dean’s chin resting on your shoulder as he watched the delicate strokes of your brush, coating your bare nails in the same color he’d picked up earlier – that is, until he decided he wanted to do it himself.
“Hey … can I try that?” Dean asked.
You didn’t even look up from what you were doing. “… Try what, hun?”
“Painting your nails, can I try it?”
This time you straightened and turned. “What?” you asked, confusion clear in your voice. “Why do you wanna do that?”
“I don’t know, you said it relaxes you and it just looks so … smooth, and inviting.”
You cocked an eyebrow. “Smooth and inviting?”
“I don’t know, okay!” Dean looked flustered and maybe a little embarrassed. “I just wanna try. So can I, or not?”
You smiled and closed your hand around his, squeezing reassuringly. “You painting my nails or yours?” Dean leveled a glare at you. You held up your hands in mock surrender, a small laugh escaping your lips. “My nails, got it.”
You tried to stand up so you could sit facing Dean, giving him a better angle to work with, but he held you in place and pulled you further into his chest, reaching around you instead and caging you in with his arms. “Are you sure you don’t want me to … ?”
“Sit still,” Dean mumbled, “the master is working.”
You rolled your eyes and smiled, settling into Dean’s right side and giving him a better view of your unpainted left hand. His free arm tightened around your waist as he brought the shaky, too saturated polish brush to your waiting nail with his other.
“Dean, you’re doing it backwards - you’re supposed to go towards the tip, not from it.”
“Shh …” He dropped a giant glob of pink on your skin. “Master. Working. Silence.”
This time you stifled your laugh as Dean dragged the paint across your nail – and cuticle, and skin – and simply watched the man you loved. Watched the hard lines of concentration on his face, watched the way his tongue darted out from between his lips whenever he would start a new nail. He was beautiful - and loving, and deserved more simple moments like this. Deserved far more than he ever got. So when he finished his lumpy, misshapen masterpiece and asked you how he did, you simply pulled him down to your level and pressed a sweet kiss to his lips.
“I love you.”

Recently, 1000Toys shipped my 1/6 Synthetic Human to me. He took 7 months from placing the order to arriving at my doorstep - but I don’t care! He’s awesome!!
The completion and shipping of the Synthetic Humans kept getting pushed back for quality purposes and also an earthquake that had rattled the factory in Japan. It was disappointing to have to wait longer and longer, but I’m familiar with the pre-order patience game. In the end, he feels 100% worth it.
The first thing I noticed about him is his subtle weathering.
To be honest I couldn’t tell you if this is just a paint flub or not, but its consistent along the edges of all his parts - and I rather like it!
He came with three pairs of hands…
Fists, weapon grip, and relaxed.
His wrist pegs are hardy, and switching hands is super easy.
So let’s show some poses!
Yeah! weird poses!
Because he’s a total boss at posing. I just… just look at him.
He’s also slightly more petite for a 1/6 male figure.
Here he is between a Glitch Network Seraphim (more standard 30cm 1/6 dude size) and a 27cm Volks fashion doll. So he’s a bit shorter, and in my opinion, narrower than your average 1/6 dude.
Did I mention his entire head comes apart?
He has an outer mask, and his skull comes apart so you can pose his eyes!
He feels like a good quality figure, his posing is solid and smooth, and he just looks so darn cool. For $150usd shipped and all - he was 100% worth the price AND the wait.
I'm not the same anon but I'd love to hear your thoughts on yoonseok my heart beats for them
Finally getting around to answering this sorry TT okay so, yoonseok. i like to call this ship the original gays because people somehow seem to think that they’ve surfaced recently but the truth is that they’ve been shippable since the dawn of time.
I think the keyword with this ship is Mutual Respect. They’re such a SOLID, dependable ship. In the same way you can ALWAYS count on Jungkook to be staring at Jimin, you can pretty much always count on Yoongi to be looking at and paying attention to Hoseok. Yoongi really looks at Hoseok like he’s the sun y’know?
I love this ship because they’re so genuinely wholesome. They support each other and understand each other, and they make each other feel comfortable. Whatever the other needs they’re likely to give to one another. Say Hoseok looks like he’s feeling self conscious or uncomfortable? Yoongi is about to be right there at his side, a soft palm pressed against his back or an elbow to his side saying something or smiling and trying to make Hoseok fall back to Earth again. Say Yoongi looks tired and distracted and worn out. Hoseok is gonna be there, rattling off jokes, helping Yoongi to surface back into the world and stop detatching where he can get lost in his thoughts.
The truth is, there’s so much concern and understanding with this ship. Easily one of the most healthy, pure dynamics I think I’ve ever seen.
I live for watching Yoongi pick Hoseok first in games and questionnaires and, everything tbh. You can almost count on it, 98% of the time, Yoongi will choose Hoseok first if he has to pick. Because he said he likes partnering with Hoseok (”With Hoseok maybe I’d have a bit more motivation.’) I live for seeing Yoongi draw attention to Hoseok WHEREVER he can so that Hoseok NEVER has to feel small, unimportant or forgotten. Like he KNOWS that Hoseok wants that attention and praise, even if Hoseok will always divert the attention away again or get flustered and just :’D.
And Hoseok ALWAYS has Yoongi’s back. Deadass Hoseok would probably move an ocean for Yoongi. Hoseok just seems to read Yoongi very well. Their energies are accommodating, there’s this push and pull with their energy that you can read SO easily if you just pay attention to them. For a day, for an hour, flip through some random vids and look for just Hoseok and Yoongi. Their energy is so refreshing and smooth and easy going. The way the interact and look at each other is so positive and comfortable. You can ALWAYS read the respect on Yoongi’s expression, and he laughs ALL of the time with Hoseok. and with Hoseok, he drifts casually to Yoongi side SO often.
idk, i just love yoonseok because they’re so positive and wholesome. I like to call them the ‘we get eachother’ couple. Because…well…i think it speaks for itself. :’) I love Yoonseok. So, very, much.
Some screencap paintovers to make her look extra pretty, and also slightly more like a 22-year-old than a 35-year-old. I mean, she still doesn’t look remotely 22, but that’s okay, I love my flippant awkward daughter.
And now it is time for our hope, our angel, the other half of sope who is looking really cute with his super blonde hair like he had kinda blonde hair before but now it’s bl o nd e and it’s super cute I’m excited to see how long he keeps it like if he’ll perform with it or if he just bleached his hair to dye it another color, I’m content either way, Jung Hoseok aka J-Hope aka hobi
This AU is gonna be about what I think would happen if the reader
was the idol and BTS were the fans, you can also think about this like a
general celebrity post, I’m gonna be basing this off of kpop idols bc
it’s easier for me to write with just one focus instead of being all the
over place with it but if you wanted to see this as an actor!reader or a
non-kpop singer!reader post, you could easily do that (and of course
this is all still gender neutral)
Another series with idol!reader is my idol couple series (hobi’s post is here) where both the reader and BTS are idols
Gonna throw in some youtuber!hobi (here) to sum it up, he’s part of the One Million dance studio crew
Okay but hobi is s u c h a hype fan
Like you know how in performances, there’s almost always that one fan that’s screaming at the top of their lungs and can be heard above everyone else (remember that one time this one girl screamed “J-Hope” and he’s was literally :O bc my fave) that’s hobi
Hobi’s a loud kid it’s just part of his charm it’s one of the reasons we love him so much so when he gets excited he’s gonna be !!!!
We’ve already seen fanboy!hobi in action, when there’s a song out that he loves, he’ll have the dance memorized and will be ready to dance it at every turn and he’ll be singing it all the time and it’s so cute bc he’s a precious bub
He’s the number one fan that knows all the songs, watches all the interviews bc he just gets really really happy watching your videos or listening to your music
He’s s o supportive like anytime you release a song/album, he’s running straight for Jimin’s house to tell him about it and then chim tells Tae who tells kook who tells Jin who tells joon who tells yoon it’s full circle
Sometimes he’ll just walk into a room and start the fan chants and by this point, the boys all know every word so they join in and it’s really funny to watch bc they go from 0 to 100 within 0.2 seconds we’ve all seen how long it takes for one of the boys to get the rest hyped up you blink and you miss it
Hobi’s reactions all depend on what’s happening, if there’s a dance break going on you can see him get s o hyped up he pretty much bounces out of his seat
But if it’s singing or rapping, he’ll sing along and just kinda appreciate the performance and you can tell he’s enjoying it and he’ll dance a lil bit in his seat and it’s s o cute to watch bc he’s such a cutie pie I love hobi
Okay so you know how some of the dancers at 1M have artists they dance to a lot, like Bongyoung has Justin Bieber and a ton of the dancers dance to Jay Park
Well head canon that you’re hobi’s artist, people can pretty much guarantee that when you release a new song, hobi will have a dance to it within two weeks if not less
His dances are always so niCe like he’s such an amazing dancer like when he gets into that zone he really gets into it and it’s breathtaking and it’s just w o w
Another head canon that he does a live stream with Jimin and kook (who are also part of the 1M studio in this AU)
You know those Hope on the Street lives he did where it was a mix of dancing and just chatting and joking around, that’s what their live streams are, sometimes they take requests sometimes they just freestyle or dance battle it out
And the boys start teasing hobi about his crush on you when his face lights up when someone requests your song and he’s got this shy smile on his face and a tiny hint of a blush and he starts calling them out on their crushes to help get the attention of him and his blushy cheeks but it doesn’t work for the viewers
Everyone started screaming about how cute the relationship would be bc they were already <3 for you and hobi since he’s been doing your dances since the start of the channel and it’s pretty obvious he’s a huge fan
The next step for them is getting you to notice him so everyone starts linking you to his channel with jikook or the dances he did to your songs and after seeing it pop up on your feed oh so many times you get curious about this “hobi” that people are telling you to watch
You pretty much instantly fall in love with his dancing, it’s got this laid back vibe that just screams experience like his dancing isn’t something you just learn with a few classes, it’s something you gotta feel in your heart and it takes practice and you really have to love what you’re doing
You binge watch all of his dances and then everyone starts tweeting that he’s doing another live stream and that you should watch it and get to know his personality too bc if you think hobi is cute visually, wait until you see his personality
It takes you about 2 seconds to develop a crush on him bc he’s so cute and his laugh is contagious and he’s got this really genuine friendship with Jikook so they’re all teasing each other and bickering, which makes them laugh even more which makes you laugh even more
And then they start dancing and your jaw is just on the floor bc hobi makes the smallest movements look so smooth and easy like he’s one of those people that makes the hardest moves look so casual and easy like fuck yeah I can do that too type of shit
You decide to tweet out a screen cap of the live stream just to let people know that you’re watching it and that makes everyone lose their shit and then they start telling hobi immediately of course
He doesn’t know how to react when he sees all of the messages saying you’re watching like does he scream does he play it cool does he flirt what does one do in this situation
He kinda screams a bit and looks at Jikook and he’s whispering to them asking what to do and they, being some of his best friends, gotta bring up the crush again and then it’s your turn to wonder what to do bc there are so many options
You call the studio the next day and figure out how to arrange a dance class with hobi (like Jay Park danced with the 1M crew that type of class) and he’s screaming and bouncing around when he finds out and Jikook are just smirking
“You should be thanking us”
“Why would I thank you”
“Your future children are gonna be born bc we said you have a crush, you’re welcome”
“It’s just one class together”
“We all know this is gonna go further than a class, just let us be the best men at the wedding”
