thinking about doing this even though i'll probably just give up lol

anonymous asked:

what are your sexuality headcanons for the paladins?

Ehhhhhh, hmmmm, let’s see… I mean, I support all kinds of ships in the fandom that probably break my headcanons, so this in no way implies that I disagree with other ships. These are just my, personal, headcanons for sexuality and… other things. Because I went overboard, as usual -  

Lance - Bisexual (obv). Biromantic. I think he probably has some issues expressing his attraction to men, however. Not because he’s unaware of it, but because he has a “Han Solo” type image he wants to portray to those he wants to impress and so it’s easier to stick to only flirting with ladies. That is, until he’s confident and comfortable enough to express how he really feels to his new “family.” Lance is, in my opinion, a very, very secretive person that uses his typical attitude as a sort of smoke and mirrors idea to convince those he meets otherwise. Because insecurity. Also, I think Lance kind of shifts between being quite masculine and quite feminine when he feels comfortable in doing so. I don’t think he suffers from gender dysphoria, but I don’t think he allows his gender to dictate how he presents himself (again, once he feels comfortable enough with the people around him. Dat insecurity and desire to impress be gettin’ in the way). For example, back home with his family and in his neighborhood and where he’s most at ease, he’s more than happy to wear makeup. Or, say, during Cuban festivals like the Havana Carnival, you know damn well he’s wearing one of those more revealing getups with the fancy headdresses and all the beaded decorations and flashy sleeves and feathers, etc, etc. YOU CANNOT TAKE THIS HEADCANON AWAY FROM ME! GIVE ME HAVANA CARNIVAL LANCE! NOW! 

Keith - Gay. Super gay. As gay as they come. SO gay. Homoromantic. I also headcanon Keith as being somewhat hyper-romantic, meaning that he really, really desires a romantic relationship (far more so than anything sexual). Like, he’s the type that forms feelings hard and fast and without mercy, and so he tries really, really hard not to give in, but it never works. He’s more apt to keep such things bottled up tight than ever express them, however–too afraid of rejection. 

Pidge - Asexual. Aromantic. Pidge is far more interested in platonic bonds and values her family/friends more than anything. Which is why it’s so important that she find her family. I’d imagine she has a hard time making friends as well, so what strong bonds she does have are very, very important to her support system. She has anti-social tendencies, but is very dependent on the people she does love to be there and love her in return. I also imagine she suffers from gender dysphoria, and that–though it’s something that doesn’t really affect her position as part of Voltron any–it wears on her a bit. It’s clear from the space mall episode, when she couldn’t decide which bathroom to go in, that how she’s presenting herself–at least in public–is stressing her a bit. I think she’s comfortable enough with Team Voltron not to worry about it, but something inside her is uncertain. Whether this leads to her making a transition or identifying as gender fluid isn’t something I’ve decided yet, however.   

Hunk - Panromantic and asexual. I dunno why I love the idea of asexual Hunk so much–maybe because it’s interesting to headcanon both him and Pidge that way due to how different they are. I like the idea of romantically distant Pidge, who still needs all her platonic relationships, while Hunk loves romance and wants it and all the frills that come along with it. But he’s also patient and doesn’t really go looking for it? Like, he knows it’ll come someday and he’s just waiting for that perfect person(s). Until then, he’s more than happy to give cuddles and love to his friends. I also think Hunk would do very well with polyamorous relationships and would be more than willing to be in one/want one. And though he has no active interest in sex himself, he’d be more than happy to participate if it made his partner happy. He’s not sex-repulsed (as Pidge probably is), he just doesn’t care one way or another.   

Shiro - Demisexual and demiromantic. Shiro partially takes a while to warm up to people because of the trauma he’s been through, but also because he’s always been very focused elsewhere and so he’s never thinking about romance or sex at the forefront. When it does hit him, though, it’s deep and burning and certain. He’s the kind of person that loves someone his whole life, even if they don’t love him in return, and so even though he may not end up with that person, a flame for them will always exist inside him, even if it is subdued. That’s just how deeply he feels things–it leaves that much of an impact on him. But, like I said, it does take a special kind of person and a lot of time to get him to that point. 

Allura - Gray-sexual and demiromantic. Allura has a lot more important things to worry about than sex and relationships. I also kind of headcanon that sex wasn’t a huge part of Altean culture anyway. Allura feels sexual attraction sometimes, but it’s not hard for her to control, nor is it distracting. That doesn’t mean she can’t be a sexual person, just that it’s not something that’s overpowering unless she lets it overpower her at her own volition. I would also imagine that she takes a while to romantically warm up to people, even if she’s platonically very friendly. If she’s going to enter into a romantic relationship, it needs to be with someone she’s partners with–both romantically and otherwise. Someone she can work with, but who can also manage themselves and offer things productive to the relationship. Allura would need–I think above anything–an efficient relationship. Which is why this determination would have to be solidified before romance was introduced or even considered. 

Coran - I… don’t know, lol. I usually headcanon Coran as being very dedicated to the royal family and so his personal life wasn’t something he considered important. Which I guess would make him a kind of asexual and aromantic. But I also imagine that Alteans are very good at compartmentalizing, so even if he was attracted to someone/in love, he wouldn’t allow it to get in the way of his duties. Therefore, I consider Coran’s personal life to, well, be none of my business, hahahaha!

“Isn’t in kind of unrealistic, statistically, that all the Voltron members be part of the LGBTQ+ community?”

No. If it weren’t for the gender and sexual stereotypes that permeate human society, I theorize that diversity among such things would be far more wide-spread. Not only that, but each lion represents a different type of person and I think it’s perfectly reasonable, therefore, that each paladin show variances all over the spectrum, not just in their personalities. They are five pieces that come together to make a whole, so like they represent different races and personality types, other things about them should show differences as well. Which means that, yes, I do get slightly annoyed at the lack of female representation on the team. What little representation women have isn’t enough, and Hunk or Shiro would have made really good female characters without it altering the story one bit. 

ANYWAY! Hope that sums it up :D

hi how are you? first i jus wanna say i literally love your blog like ur writing is the definition of sof and warm literally warmau tbh one of my fav fav posts of yours was the bts going to a family wedding sometimes i'll jsu reread it nd my heart grows three sizes bigger but also melts at the same time? idk how that works tbh but it happens lol i was wondering if you could do the same w monsta x? whenver you can/want obv lol idk how to make requests i dont like telling ppl what to do sdjkndaskj

thank you!! and don’t worry,,,,ofc i can do this req~
org req: how would bts react if you asked them to be your date at someone else’s (like a family member’s) wedding? Like how would they act around your family, what would they do, any cute moments, etc.

Shownu: is effectively a doer and not a talker and so he’d do the most to impress your family. And by this I mean literally the most like pull the chairs out for all the women in your family, offer to carry anything heavy, if need be he will move an entire table from one end of the party hall to the other. Your family names it, Shownu will do it. And you’d probably have to make sure he doesn’t physically exert himself because you’re sure your family gets it - he’s strong and can be reliable. Although he might be a little awkward and quiet, he’ll make it known that he’s committed and ready to help you and your family - making him the perfect husband material (as one of your aunts will probably say).

Kihyun: will bond almost instantly with all the guests. He’s a natural born entertainer and he’ll have jokes and stories that’ll make everyone laugh and be put into a good mood. To be honest, by the end of the night he’ll probably have learned more of your family drama than you, telling you about it in the car back home. Usually at weddings couples stay together and mingle with other couples, but Kihyun will be swarmed by your family members and you’ll only laugh because that’s your boyfriends charm.

Wonho: is shy and easily embarrassed by the questions and comments from your family. More than anything he’ll stick to your side and under his breath ask you who’s who again and what he should and shouldn’t bring up like for instance don’t bring up disney world with one of your cousins because things happened on a family vacation that we would like to forget. But other than that he’d be the perfect date and would take care of you in ways he thinks is subtle but has everyone else swooning about how lucky you are to have him.

Hyungwon: knows that your family is important to you and therefore you might expect him to not be enthusiastic or active, but to your surprise he will be. When there are serious matters, Hyungwon can act really mature and will probably vibe really well with some of the older members of your family. He’ll show that he’s not just a visual boyfriend, but that he’s insightful and smart and you’ll actually be really proud of him by the end of it because someone will mention that he’s much more than a pretty face - he is pretty intelligent too. 

Minhyuk: is going to be a hit with the kids. Literally they’re all going to flock to him like little chicks and you’ll notice him on the dancefloor, a niece or nephew of yours in his hands as he spins them around and a circle of other kids all tugging at his pant leg wanting to be spun around too. Minhyuk will probably end up sweating and tired, crayon scribbles on his arms and his hair a mess from where the kids played with it, but it’ll be cute and you’ll hear comment on what great of a dad he’ll be.

Jooheon: will take a while to warm up to the party scene and your family members but he’d also surprise everyone with a really meaningful toast. Jooheon writes lyrics and music, so even though he can act like a kid and be really shy, he ultimately has a way with words and is secretly a super big romantic. So when he delivers his speech, it’ll touch everyone in the room and the couple getting married might legit cry. Jooheon will just sit down, pink cheeks and you’ll be like oh my god and someone from your family will be like “He should be a poet……”

Changkyun: his nervousness to be around your family and try to give off a good impression will manifest into his dorky personality. Unlike Kihyun who knows how to work a crowd with jokes and whatnot, it’s Changkyun’s little mishaps that’ll make him come off endearing to everyone at the wedding. Like when he trips over some ribbons trying to get to his seat at the party, when he accidentally stumbles over the names of your distant relatives, when he admits that he’s become a fool that only looks at you. It’ll seem like he’s clumsy, but in cute tiny ways that your family thinks are adorable and will probably tease him about in the future. 

Title: First Fight
Pairing: Analogical
A/N: i’m…not confident about this one lol hopefully it doesn’t suck and hopefully it’s not complete and total garbage like I think it issss @undertakershairline

It’d been about twenty minutes since Virgil left, and Logan was starting to wonder what happened.  When the anxious side had stormed off, they’d simply been talking about a few of Virgil’s concerns.  Logan, never the one to quite understand Virgil’s immediate emotional reaction to certain things, tossed out the concerns and reminded Virgil how irrational the thought process was.

Which was when Virgil stormed off.  Logan sighed and sunk out to find his boyfriend, having a good idea to where he might have run off.

Sure enough, at the end of the hallway upstairs was a window seat. And that window seat was covered up by a large dark sheet with what looked like phone light being the only thing to shine through.  “Virgil?” Logan called as he pushed open the makeshift curtain.

The anxious side sat in a ball, the stuffed bear he loved so much kept balanced on his calves.  As he locked eyes with Logan, Virgil clicked his phone to sleep and put it down at his side, flipping his hood up and burying his face in his knees.

“Virgil, what are you doing?” Logan asked as he sat down, letting the curtain fall back against them.

Virgil huffed and mumbled into his knees just quiet enough that Logan couldn’t make out what he said.

“What was that?” Logan asked, leaning in just a bit closer.

Which was when Virgil threw his hood off and got to his feet, shoving the curtain away and tearing it down.  “Being irrational, apparently!” Virgil shouted as he stormed off towards the commons room.

Logan sat frozen, unsure of what to make of the situation at first.  What in the world was Virgil talking about?!  As he went after Virgil, he found him once again curled up, this time on the sofa.

Aysel! ^^ I hope this is not a bother to you, but could you write about RFA+V+Saeran unintentionally say something insensitive to fem!MC? My friends actually did this today and I feel kinda down about it. I know they mean well, though. If you don't wanna, you don't need to write about this, I'll probably be fine lol. If you do, though, thank you in advance! --Yuu who idolizes your writing <3

Hello! I know this is late, but I hope you’re alright now^^ 

This… got super long, lol. Some of these things have been said to me in the past and it really hurt to hear it, especially since some of these were said by close friends and relatives. Just remember that there are plenty of people who love you and would never want to hurt your feelings!

I hope you enjoy this request! I don’t think I make total sense in some of them, but I really hope the meaning I’m trying to convey comes across!


·         You would often feel ill since you had anxiety. It wasn’t anything serious, just stomach aches and headaches were the norm. You had already told Yoosung that you had anxiety, and he was very supportive of you. You assumed that he knew that you feeling sick was a side effect of it.

·         However, you became aware that he didn’t know in one of the worst ways possible.

·         He had just finished a raid on LOLOL and was waiting for some more players to join him, but because of his high rank in the server it usually took a while. So, you absentmindedly said that you felt ill, figuring he would at least give you a hug or tell you that he wished for you to get better soon. But, he did neither of those things.

·         All he said was, “You always seem to be ill, ____!”

·         The words hit you like having a bucket of ice cold water being dunked on you. He laughed, but with a sympathetic look, yet you felt so hurt. How could he say that, especially when he knew the reason why you felt sick?

·         You really wanted to cry, the hurt biting at your heart, but you were determined not to. You kept a brave face, biting your lip as you said it would probably go away soon.

·         He noticed that your voice sounded a little weird, but he assumed it was because you felt sick. Soon, you ended up excusing yourself to your room because you couldn’t hold back the tears. His words hurt way too much and you hated it. Even when you cried, you kept super quiet so he wouldn’t hear. You didn’t want to be such a bother to him anymore.

·         After a few hours, you came out of the room. Even though you were barely able to stop your tears, you had sort of composed yourself. If he didn’t look at you… Or didn’t pay attention to how you sounded… He wouldn’t notice you had been crying.

·         However, you didn’t realise he was cooking, so when you sat on the couch the smell of food began to immediately make you feel sick again. You grabbed a blanket and wrapped it around yourself, trying to hide your face in it.

·         He noticed your presence and greeted you cheerfully, but you could care less. All you could do was reply with yeahs and noises of agreement.

·         It wasn’t until he sat next to you that you could feel newfound tears well up in your eyes, but you hid your face as best as you could. Yet you could feel his gaze bore into you, wondering why you were acting so… different.

·         “Are you okay?”

·         It was those three words that tipped you over the edge, and as the tears trickled down your cheeks, you tried to stifle your noises. But Yoosung wasn’t dumb.

·         He could feel his heart break when he saw you trying to hide your tears. He immediately stopped cooking and threw himself at you, embracing you super tightly. He asks you why you’re crying, like was it something he said?

·         Yes it was, Yoosung.

·         When he realises it was because he made an off-hand remark about you being ill often, he instantly starts apologising. He feels like an utter jerk and is so devastated that he hurt your feelings! And when you tell him why what he said hurt you so badly… his heart sinks. He didn’t know it was a side effect of anxiety, but he feels so bad for not noticing it sooner!

·         His apologies are a mixture of “I’m so sorry!”, “I didn’t mean to hurt your feelings!”, and “I didn’t realise that was the reason!”. He sounds and looks like he’s about to cry any minute, and you can genuinely tell he didn’t mean to hurt you.

·         Honestly, he’s said sorry so many times that the word sounds weird to him now.

·         Even if you’ve forgiven him, he feels like his words weren’t enough – he’ll go out and buy you your favourite sweets, and make you your favourite meal (even if it was different to what he was originally making!). If you aren’t in the mood to eat, he’ll make you a delicious hot chocolate topped with whipped cream and marshmallows (it’s not even the instant stuff – he follows this recipe online to make sure it’s super sweet and delicious!)

·         If you’re up for it, he’ll play video games with you, and it doesn’t have to be LOLOL! But if you aren’t in the mood, he’s happy to put on a movie and snuggle with you under a blanket. Just… No horror movies… It’s not like he’s scared, you know!

·         After this incident, he does a whole lot more research on anxiety and pays close attention to what your triggers are. He makes sure he’s much more careful with what he says because he doesn’t want to ever hurt you like that again!

·         Tbh it takes him like a week to stop feeling bad for what he said.


·         You hadn’t been looking forward to this day. Ever since you got a letter saying that you needed some injection you were pretty sure you’d had in the past, you had been dreading this day. You had wanted to push the day back, until they gave up and didn’t want to give you the injection.

·         However, you forced yourself to go ahead with it. The sooner you got it done, the sooner you wouldn’t have to deal with it again. You were pretty sure Zen would support you – he was always encouraging and super supportive towards you in the past, after all

·         However, when you told him how you felt, you weren’t expecting his reaction – he thought you were joking!

·         “They’re just needles, ____! They won’t hurt you!”

·         Sure, you could have forgiven him and explained your fear to him, but it was the fact he had the audacity to laugh. All you could do is glare at him and bite your cheek, now facing the prospect of having to deal with your fear alone. However, it was difficult, and the current state you were in definitely did not help.

·         You become more distressed by the minute, the thought of needles and all the bad experiences you’ve had with them on your mind. You feel your heart beating faster, your breaths becoming more laboured, and tears welling at your eyes as you struggle to cope with the thoughts you’re having.

·         Zen sees you panicking and he immediately works on calming you down, using techniques he’s learned from acting and watching his castmates have panic attacks. He’s quick to calm you down, and when you recover he wipes your tears away.

·         He gives you a tight hug and tells you over and over that he’s sorry and has been a bad boyfriend for making light of your fear. He lets you explain your fear and talk about anything else on your mind, all the while holding you and stroking your hair, occasionally placing kisses on your forehead.

·         He feels like he’s been slapped in the face when you tell him how much your fear affects you. He couldn’t believe he had the audacity to laugh it off, even if he wasn’t aware of it beforehand.

·         While you’re waiting for the nurse to call you in, he’ll play with your hair and offer you a ton of encouragement. He’ll talk about random stuff just to take your mind off what’s to come. He doesn’t even mind singing a song for you and offering a show for everyone else in the waiting room if you want it.

·         When you get the injection, he lets you squeeze his hand super tight, even if it’s hard enough to cause bruises. He watches them put the needle in, and he realises why you’re so scared – he hasn’t had an injection in years, so he doesn’t know how it feels, but it looks painful!

·         After the injection, he’ll treat you like a princess afterwards. He’ll kiss where you were injected and let you rest for the remainder of the day.

·         The next day he’ll surprise you with flowers and your favourite sweets, again apologising for acting like a jerk about something you were terrified of. If you ever need another injection, he’s going to remember this moment so he knows not to say something insensitive like that again.


·         It was just another ordinary evening at her house. You had been staying with her for some time because you had been suffering with some mental health issues, and she wanted to be by your side and look after you. You hadn’t been out for days and the thought of even taking a step outside was too much for you to bear.

·         She had asked you if you wanted to go out, but you shook your head. You would rather stay inside, where you felt comfort, where nobody was watching. You expected her to be fine with it and suggest doing something to cheer you up, but you were totally unprepared for her words.

·         “Don’t you ever get bored of staying inside?”

·         Her words stung. She knew you would’ve loved to go outside, but couldn’t bring yourself to. It wasn’t even like she said it sympathetically either, she said it so casually and sounding slightly irritated… You felt hurt. She had been so accepting about your mental health disorder, but now it felt like she was throwing it back in your face.

·         You hadn’t noticed the tears well up in your eyes until you felt them threatening to spill out of your eyes. You didn’t want Jaehee to see how weak you were, but you couldn’t make them go away. They fell, and you couldn’t suppress the sniffles that followed. You feel so pathetic and childish, but you can’t stop the tears from falling. You covered your face with your hands, trying to ensure Jaehee wouldn’t see… But it only made it more obvious you were crying.

·         Seeing you break down into tears like that makes her feel awful. She could see how much her words had hurt you, and she never intended them to be so malicious. She bit her cheek, trying to stay rational and focus on calming you down.

·         She makes you a cup of tea and some tissues, letting you cry it out. If you want a hug, she’ll oblige, holding you close and letting you cry on her shoulder.

·         When you’re calmer, she’ll give you a sincere apology. She really never meant to hurt your feelings and she feels a pang in her heart seeing you look so defeated and upset. She wishes she hadn’t been so blunt with her words.

·         She suggests watching a movie, and for once she’ll let you choose the film – she won’t mind if it isn’t a Zen musical! She’ll make some snacks and dim the lights, wrapping the two of you in a blanket.

·         After this, she wants to talk to you about your problems. Even if she can’t solve them all, she wants to be by your side and support you through difficult times. She knows how daunting it can be when you can’t bear to face the world; she’s felt like that when she’s been through rough patches working at C&R. She wants to be someone who can help you and build your confidence up.


·         You hadn’t been feeling hungry for the past few days. You often went through periods where you didn’t want to eat and felt fine without food, and now was just another time. Even if you’d tried to hide this fact from Jumin by eating small portions, today you just couldn’t do it. You felt like if you ate, you would burst. You just weren’t in the mood to eat.

·         The problem was, you didn’t know how to tell him you didn’t want to eat. Even if you two were accepting of each other… You didn’t know how he would react to you not wanting to eat. You were kind of terrified that he would force feed you or tell you that you were ungrateful, but you knew it was better to tell him sooner rather than later.

·         As you were thinking of the right words to say to him, you hadn’t noticed that you had been served your food by the chef. In fact, you had been spacing out, so worried about what to say, that it took Jumin to snap you out of it. You would have appreciated it, but the words were the ones you didn’t want to hear, especially now.

·         “Aren’t you going to eat?”

·         Sure, these were relatively harmless words, but hearing them now felt like a slap to the face. You couldn’t even respond or move; his words had caused you to stop functioning altogether.

·         Jumin immediately knew something was wrong. He tried to ask you if you were okay, but now you started to tense up as you thought horrible things about yourself. How you were so unappreciative, how you were a disgusting pig, and how you were just a waste of space. You struggled to meet his gaze, and instead excused yourself from the table, not even bringing yourself to meet his gaze.

·         Jumin normally doesn’t worry, but seeing you look so upset and trying to remain calm… As well as not touching your food… He’s worried now. He completely ignored his meal and followed you, wanting to know why you seemed so upset.

·         Really, you just wanted to lock yourself away and cry alone, but you knew he wasn’t going to let it go, no matter how hard you tried to brush it off.

·         Even though it takes you a while, since you’re so insistent that you won’t cry, you reluctantly tell him why you’re upset. You tell him how insensitive his words were and how they made you feel. How you had those periods of not wanting to eat, and how you were nervous about telling him, all the while he listened intently with a tightness in his chest as he realised he said the wrong thing.

·         “I should have been more careful with my words. I’m sorry.”

·         Letting the chef take away your food, he takes you to the bedroom and holds you close to him, reassuring you that he doesn’t think of you any differently for your eating habits. If you can’t hold back your tears, he’ll let you cry them all out until you’re satisfied. If Elizabeth joins you two, he’ll let you snuggle her as long as you want. He wants to comfort you and make you feel better, since he felt appalled that he would say something so hurtful to you, especially since you were the one who untangled his threads.

·         Honestly, he drops his work for the rest of the day to comfort you and remind you how much he loves you.

·         After this, he’ll make sure you see a doctor, just to make sure it isn’t anything super serious. But, he’ll treat you like luxury for a very long time afterwards, even if he does already; he’ll buy you countless gifts every day, to remind you how much he loves you.

·         It’s now his top priority for you to be comfortable with telling him about any problems you have. He’d never judge you for anything, and he wants you to know that.


·         You were getting ready for a date with Seven. He had arrived earlier than you expected, so he was waiting for you while you finished putting on your makeup. You were super insecure about your appearance, and putting on a lot of makeup made you feel better – it acted as a sort of mask, so no one could judge you for how you looked.

·         However, when you were finished, Seven had a different reaction than you were expecting. Sure, you weren’t expecting him to sing your praises about how you looked, but…

·         “I can’t believe it takes you so long to get ready!”

·         You weren’t expecting that reaction. Maybe it was because you hadn’t been feeling good recently, or the fact that you’d had a shitty week, but his words hurt.

·         Even as you got into his car and he started driving towards your date location, you were having horrible thoughts about yourself. He had never even said the things you thought in your head, but your current mood made you think words that he would never say. And it felt so bad.

·         You tried for so long to not cry, to steel your heart and keep it all in until this date was over. But it was so difficult not to, especially when they were clouding your vision and making it impossible to see.

·         You let a few tears fall, staring at the floor so he wouldn’t see you cry. You would feel so weak and pathetic if he saw you now… Except he kind of noticed.

·         “Are you crying?”

·         You shake your head, trying to brush it off as the rain, but he sees through your lie. You’re in the car and he can hear you trying to control your breathing. And then suddenly, you let it all out, unable to hold back your sadness.

·         Through your tears you told him how ugly you felt, how you hated wearing a ‘mask’ even around him, but it was the only way you truly felt confident. All your life you had been told you weren’t ‘pretty enough’ or looked horrible.

·         You sob into his shirt, neither of you caring that there would be makeup stains left behind. He embraced you, playing with your hair and whispering that it would be okay, that everything was going to be all right.

·         He’ll give you a sincere apology; he feels awful that he hurt your feelings without realising it. You deserve better than his thoughtless words, after all. He even understands how you feel, because he often feels ugly and insecure about his appearance too.

·         When you feel a little better, he’ll cup your face and give you a passionate kiss, wiping your tears away with the pads of his thumbs. And when he pulls away, he’ll giggle and push your cheeks to make you smile, even if it looks weird. He’ll focus on trying to make you laugh too, and honestly it works because this guy is the master of puns and jokes.

·         He’ll even give you his jacket for comfort while he drives, too.

·         Honestly, you two were probably planning on a date at the planetarium but now he’s pulling up to the nearest McDonalds because he knows junk food cheers you up. You’re in a beautiful red dress, makeup done to perfection (asides from the black lines that make you look like the Marionette from FNAF), and hair coiffed as best as you could make it… But you’re eating chicken nuggets and fries, not giving a damn how out of place you look in the food court.

·         When you get home, he’ll show you how beautiful you really are <3

·         After this, he makes sure to tell you how beautiful you are every day. He’s probably gone into your phone and set you random, cute alarms, reminding you that you’re beautiful. He’ll even send you feel good texts throughout the day, even if the two of you are in the same room. He’ll shower you in so many compliments that if each one was a droplet of water, you would be having a bath.


·         You hadn’t had the greatest week. It hadn’t been going well, and you felt stressed. V already knew. He suggested taking photos to relieve your stress and it had been working.

·         You were taking random photos of his cactus, and thought you had found the perfect shot. You were eager to show him, to see what he’d say!

·         However, when he looked at your photo… His reaction didn’t seem to change. And you were confused – could he not see it well enough? Did you show him the wrong picture? Had the camera died?

·         You expected some sort of criticism and were ready to accept it, but you didn’t expect it to be so… harsh.

·         “It’d be better if you made the focus of the photo more central, lowered the brightness…”

·         He started listing his critiques, and it felt horrible. On any other day this would be bearable, but today, when you felt like shit, it hurt a lot. It felt like he was tearing your work to shreds and no matter what you did to improve, it would never be good enough.

·         It hurt even more because he was so nice, and his critiques weren’t like normal. He would normally point out some things that were good about the photo, but he had said nothing of the sort right now.

·         When he was finished with his critique, you couldn’t even say a single word. This man, this kind man, had made you speechless. You muttered a quiet thank you, taking the camera from his hands and ignoring the hurt in your chest. All you wanted to do was go to your bed and cry.

·         However, V could sense something was amiss. He knew his words had affected you. Before you’re even out of the door he asks you if he was too harsh.

·         There was no point in lying about it, and you knew you wouldn’t be able to bottle this up anyway, so you reluctantly nodded and tried to speak with a wobbly voice.

·         Yeah… It really hurt…

·         You let out a ragged exhale, biting your lip as you tried to hold back tears. V seemed to pause, as if weighing your words, before telling you that he’s sorry.

·         He felt so bad for making you feel upset, when that wasn’t his intent. He knew he shouldn’t have been so harsh with his words, and he wishes he could take them back. He tells you that he’s sorry, that he never meant to hurt your feelings like that. You make his entire world and he doesn’t ever want to make you cry because of something he said before he thought about it.

·         You two end up lying on your bed as he pets your hair soothingly, talking to you in that calming voice he knows you love. He holds you close, close enough so you can hear his heartbeat. He does his best to take care of you for the rest of the day - as best as a blind man can – but his efforts don’t go unappreciated, nevertheless.

·         After this incident, he’ll help you take the perfect photo. And when you’ve done it, he’ll frame it above the mantelpiece.  


·         You hadn’t been feeling good recently. You couldn’t tell why, but every day you felt so down and weren’t as cheerful as you usually were. You had tried to hide this from Saeran, feigning happiness when in reality you were hurting on the inside. Although, despite your best efforts, Saeran had seen through your façade. You had sort of expected it, and anticipated him to be blunt with his response, but no amount of anticipation could prepare you for his words.

·         “I wish you weren’t so sad.”

·         You attempted to continue being fine, despite how much the words hurt you, but you just felt ashamed for feeling so sad. You never complained about his moods, but now it felt like you were being criticised for not being as happy as he wanted you to be. You instinctively curled up, as if using your body as a shield against his words, but the damage had been done.

·         He sees you curling up and asks you if you’re hurt by what he said. You try to tell him that you’re fine, but he calls you out on your bullshit. He’s not dumb, and he’s learned the body language you use when you’re sad. He knows your every habit, and he knows how you act when you’re sad.

·         Knowing that you can’t hide your feelings from him, you let it out. You feel ashamed, when this is nothing in comparison to the trauma he’s been through, but it’s like you’re unleashing a waterfall and can’t stop yourself.

·         He tries his best to cheer you up, but to be honest he has such little experience in dealing with other people’s emotions that he isn’t sure of what to do. He’ll give up his dignity and try to tell some stupid jokes that he’s heard Seven say, and if they don’t work… He’ll do impressions. He feels really stupid, but because it’s for you, he doesn’t mind. Just… So long as Seven doesn’t see him like this, he’s okay, because he would never hear the end of it otherwise.

·         He normally doesn’t like being touched by other people or having his personal space invaded, but he’ll give you a hug and tell you that he didn’t mean it in a degrading way; he meant that he wanted you to be happy and felt bad seeing you so down. He misses your positivity and how you would encourage him to do his best.

·         When you feel calmer, he thinks of the ways you comfort him after he has a PTSD attack. He decides to put on a movie that both of you like, and he builds a pillow fort (goddammit, Seven’s rubbing off on him!). He’ll get some ice cream and he’ll let you share some with him… And in that moment, you know his attempts are genuine, because he never shares his ice cream, and certainly not this generously.

·         Afterwards, he’ll do something that he struggles to do. He’ll tell you how much he loves you. He normally feels so embarrassed about saying stuff like that, but since the moment feels right and he knows for certain you aren’t going to judge him, he says it. Even really cheesy stuff he would normally cringe at.

·         He wants to work on expressing himself more nicely, since he hates how blunt he is. It’s certainly difficult for him, but with you by his side, he can at least try his best and rely on you to call him out when he says something insensitive.

Everyone quiets when you enter Tina’s kitchen, trundling in with a giant bag.

“What’s this about a lead?”

Newt jumps to answer. “Nothing that should concern you, love.”

You drop the bag full of groceries you’d bought onto the counter and spin around, leaning back and crossing your arms. “And yet, it does.”

He shifts from foot to foot before he sighs. “There are rumors that Grindelwald was spotted in Kentucky. We aren’t sure, so there’s no need to come along.”

“I want to.”

An awkward silence stretches one minute, then two as everyone looks at everyone else. Only you and Newt maintain any sort of eye contact. You are not going to let him leave you behind.

He rubs the back of his neck, aware of your stubborn side. “Could we speak in another room?” Without waiting for an answer, he steps forward and links his fingers with yours. You follow him down the hall and into his room. He shuts the door and faces you, taking in your slight frown.

“I know you want to come along-”

You don’t let Newt finish his excuse. “Did they find signs of Grindelwald?”

He takes a deep breath. “Yes.”

“Then I’m coming.”

Crazy Together


When Lucas, although clumsily, asks Max to dance, Will hides a smile for his friend. Max accepts teasingly, and the two head off to the dance floor together. Mike, Dustin and Will stand there for only a moment, eyes lingering on their friends as they dance, when a girl from their Science class, Ava, walks up to them.

“Hey,” she says, looking straight on Will. “Do you wanna dance?”

“Uh, um, I don’t, I mean” Will stutters while he instinctively looks to Mike, who for a moment looks as shocked as Will feels. Much to Will’s disappointment though, Mike does not relieve him, but gives him an encouraging nod, urging him to respond. Will looks away, meets Ava’s eyes awkwardly. “I mean, yeah, sure.”

jeemyjamz  asked:

I was wondering if you could write a fic (inspired by the Extra gum commercial) where for every momentous event that happened in their life (First meet, first kiss, etc), Jughead writes about his feelings about her and he compiles all his little notes until the end where he gives it to Betty before proposing to her Ps. if you could have it where Jughead includes his proposal note for Betty to read before he actually proposes to her, I'll probably die from the feels

Ah! Sorry this took so long, I loved the idea so much but I wasn’t sure how I wanted to execute it so I hope it does this amazing request justice!

A/N: I wasn’t sure of when they first met in canon, so I just made something up. Sorry if it’s totally wrong lol. Also, I referenced a fic I wrote about their first date so you can find that here. Hope you like it @jeemyjamz!!!

Betty stepped into Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe expecting to find Jughead waiting for her in the same booth they had been meeting at since they were kids. Instead, she found the entire restaurant decorated the way it had been on their first date nearly ten years ago, twinkle lights and candles illuminating the entire room in a beautiful white light that made everything glow.

“Juggie?” Betty called out to the empty restaurant, scanning the room from one end to the other for any sign of him and realizing that he was nowhere to be found. In fact, it looked as though there was no one working in the kitchen or behind the counter either. She was completely alone. And it was starting to make her nervous.

“Okay, don’t freak out, you’re fine,” Betty muttered to herself, shrugging off her jacket and tossing it into a booth next to her. But instead of landing in the booth, the long black coat missed the seat completely and landed into a heap on the floor. Frustrated, Betty bent down to retrieve it when she noticed markings on the tile that hadn’t been there the previous day. “What’s this?”

Betty leaned forward to find that a line of arrows were drawn in thick black marker all along the tiled floor. Curious, Betty followed their lead until she ended up standing in front of the same booth she had thought she would find Jughead when she first entered the restaurant. But instead of her boyfriend, she found a thick, leather-bound journal waiting for her on the table. Picking it up, she noticed the sticky note stuck to the cover and smiled to herself, reading the words slowly as she took in the familiar slant of Jughead’s handwriting.

“Betty Cooper, if you weren’t such as grade-A super sleuth, I wouldn’t have trusted you to find this - but luckily for me, you’re a much better detective than I ever was so I suspect you have found the journal and are reading this note right now. I guess I should tell you that I’m giving this to you because I’ve been writing in this book since I was ten-years-old and every single entry is a memory of our time together. I’ve marked the ones of the most interest and am hoping that you will read them and not think less of me. Once you’ve reached the last page and you have followed the directions, you will find me waiting for you. Have fun traveling down memory lane. See you on the other side.”

Taking a deep breath, Betty opened to the first marked page and began to read. 

The First Day of Kindergarten (Age 5)

This is the day I first met you. I saw your parents dropping you off in the classroom and remember thinking that you had the shiniest blonde hair I had ever seen. All I could think about the entire day - during nap time and recess and snack - was running up to you and pulling on that curly blonde ponytail of yours. So I did. And while most of the girls in our class would have cried or screamed or thrown blocks at my head, you simply turned around, smiled that sweet smile of yours, and said, “Hi. I’m Betty Cooper. If you want, you can sit with me on the carpet during circle time. I’ll even let you touch my ponytail. All you have to do is ask.” I couldn’t believe it. A five-year-old with better manners than most of the adults in my life. My mind couldn’t fully grasp it, and I knew, even if I didn’t fully understand it at the time, that my entire world was about to change. So once I learned how to write in complete sentences without fully botching the grammar - that’s when I started this journal for you. A journal of all the times you changed my life. A journal of how my world continues to change everyday because of you.

Betty flipped to the next page and immediately noticed that the handwriting had changed. These were the entries that he had written when he was a kid. And they were addressed to her.

The Day You Let Me Sit On Your Swing Set (Age 10)

I spent most of the day crying. My dad’s drinking again. He’s so angry at mom and Jellybean is scared and I just needed to get away from them. So I took Jellybean and we just kept walking until we found ourselves in front of your house. You saw us and without saying a word, you led us into your backyard. You got Jellybean a popsicle because you saw that she was sad, and then we just sat on your swing set thinking of silly names to call the birds landing in your yard until your mom came home. It made be feel a little better. That was really nice of you and I’ll never forget it.

The Day of the Middle School Dance (Age 13)

I hate participating in school sanctioned-activities. I would rather stick a dozen pins in my eyes and beat them down with a hammer than be seen in a ridiculous suit and tie, parading through the cheaply-decorated school gym like I’m oblivious to the way everyone is looking at me like I’m the scum of the Earth but talk to me anyway because I’m friends with Archie. But anyway, I saw you sitting on the curb outside of the school, looking down at your shoes like there was a piece of gum stuck on the bottom. (But there wasn’t, I remember checking when you lifted your feet off the ground so Reggie wouldn’t run over them with his skateboard). So I sat next to you and asked you why you were sad. You said you didn’t want to talk about it, but I could see you staring at Archie from across the parking lot and I knew you were sad he didn’t ask you to the dance. I knew how badly you wanted to go. So I asked you to come to the dance with me instead. To my surprise you said yes. And we had a good time. And I think that if you wanted me to ask you to another dance, I would do it. Because I think you look really pretty in a dress. (Well, I always think you look pretty). But seeing you in a dress was different somehow. It made my heart beat really fast. And I think I liked how that felt.

The Day of Our First Kiss (Age 16)

Something has changed between us. Something I could never put into words. Something that, if I even tried to say it out loud, I would never be able to explain it in a way that would do it justice. So I climbed into your bedroom to see if you were alright after visiting Polly and I wanted to make you feel like everything was going to be okay. I wanted you to know that things had changed and you could count on me to be there for you. So I kissed you. And it was like a weight being lifted off my chest and I could finally breathe again. It felt so natural. It felt like I was meant to kiss you like that everyday for the rest of forever. And who knows, maybe I will. Although, let’s face it - we both know I’m not lucky enough to deserve that - to deserve you. I never have been.

The Day I Told You I Loved You (Age 17)

Today was the best and worst day of my life. My father’s funeral felt like it lasted an entire lifetime. It was cold and wet and gave every indication that it was recreated from a scene straight out of a Poe novel. But you were right by my side the entire time and it made it (almost) bearable to be standing there watching him get lowered into the ground. You held me when I cried. You pulled me away when I let my anger get the better of me and punched my hand through the stained glass window of the church. And when you were wrapping the bandage around my wound I felt this voice screaming at me - you have to tell her. You have to tell her before it’s too late because too late might be tomorrow and life is just too short to waste any moments. So I told you. I told you and you smiled and you said it back. And I cried again because I didn’t think anyone could ever love me like that. But you do. And I know I don’t deserve it, but I will never take it for granted.

The Day You Left Riverdale (Age 19)

I should hate you. I should be glad you’re gone and hope you never step foot on this godforsaken town’s soil ever again. I should want to wish the worst for you and hope you never succeed in anything you do. But I’m not the person I would have been if I had never met you. You changed me. So I can’t hate you. I’m too in love with you to hate you. And it kills me to write this so bluntly, but there’s no other way to put it - This sucks. And it’s you’re fault.

The Day You Came Back (Age 23)

The moment you stepped into my office, I knew I had to be having one of those hallucinations one gets when they’re stuck in the desert for days without food or water. You couldn’t be real. You couldn’t be walking towards me with your hair pulled back and your face even more beautiful than I remembered. But there you were. You were you. And I was me. And I had so much to say. So much you needed to know. But instead, I took a step towards you, and you looked at me with those beautiful blue eyes and I realized that I couldn’t stand another second of not touching you. So I took your face in my hands and I kissed you and suddenly we didn’t need words. We just needed each other. And that was enough.

Betty wiped the tears from her eyes and turned to the next page. “Flip to the last page and close your eyes,” the words read, causing Betty’s head to swim with so many thoughts and emotions she couldn’t even begin to comprehend.

Doing as the journal instructed, she skipped to the very last page and shut her eyes before she could read what was written. She could hear faint footsteps coming towards her and her palms began to sweat as she clutched the journal with both hands.

“Open your eyes and look at the journal.” Jughead’s voice made her heart skip a beat as she slowly did as she was told and lifted the book to read the title of the last journal entry.

The Day I asked You To Marry Me (Age 25)

…To Be Continued

Betty’s heart stopped as she dropped the journal onto the floor and looked down to see the boy she had loved for so many years, kneeling before her with a velvet ring box in his hand.

“Bets, there are a thousand eloquent speeches I could have written to express how much you mean to me, but I don’t think we need the fancy words or heartfelt soliloquies anymore,” Jughead began, his hand shaking ever so slightly as he held the box out in front of him for her to see. “I think that all I need to say to you is this. I’ve been in love with you since the very first entry in that journal. I didn’t know what it meant at the time, but I think the fact that I felt the need to start it in the first place is proof enough. You’re my world, Betty Cooper, and I want to be able to fill a hundred more journals just like this one with every memory that we share together for the rest of time. Will you marry me?”

In that moment, every memory she had of Jughead flashed across her mind just like the pages in his journal. The boy who loved playing with her ponytail, the boy who needed a swing to swing on and a friend to watch birds with when he was feeling sad, the boy who could tell when she was sad and needed someone to go to the dance with, the boy who lit up her world like twinkle lights and decorative candles illuminating Pop’s. She had spent most of her life with this boy - this man - kneeling in front of her and she wanted to spend everyday that came next, right by his side.

Without a word, Betty took the journal from his hands and lunged for the pen on the counter, her hand shaking as she wrote furiously in the journal. Jughead’s throat closed up as he watched in anticipation, waiting for the girl he loved to answer the most important question he had ever asked in his entire life. Betty turned the journal so he could read it and he stood from his kneeling position to scoop her up into his arms, tossing the journal onto the floor so that it slid across the tile and revealed Betty’s words to the empty diner.

She said yes.

Hello Kel, and welcome to this wonderful of headcanons! ^^ What about the RFA+Minor Trio reacting to a "i'm pregnant"? Idk, i like this headcanon so much, and i always ask for it lol :v thank you so much ;3; ~i don't know your work very well but the notifications are on! and i'll probably send you a lot of asks sorry not sorry

Thank you! I hope you like this.

Sort of got stuck on what to do with Jumin so I apologize if it’s not that great. Also, I didn’t include Jaehee, but if you want, I can do one where it’s adoption or something. 


  • “Could you repeat that please, MC.”
  • Takes him a few moments to process this information
  • Probably asks something like if you’re pregnant with a baby.
  • Like what else would you be pregnant with????
  • Once his brain wraps around the idea he’s super excited.
  • Gives you a giant hug
  • Then worries he might squish the baby and pulls away freaked out
  • But he calms down once you assure him he can’t squish the baby
  • And then he panics again because omg you need a crib and diapers and toys and doctors and so many things. There is such a long list!
  • And he needs to tell everyone!
  • He’s rambling on about everything that needs to be done as though it needs to be done now
  • “Yoosung, the baby won’t come for six more months. We have time. Calm down.”
  • Okay. So buying the crib can wait
  • But he still needs to tell everyone.
  • By the end of the night, the RFA, your families combined, his entire LOLOL guild, and probably the rest of the world knows you are pregnant.


You hadn’t decided how to tell him yet but it sort of just slipped out

  • The two of you were discussing a job he had been offered that would require him to travel for about a month
  • The month being the same one you would be due.
  • Normally you would have been ecstatic and encouraging him to take it, so when you were obviously reluctant, he knew something was up.
  • “Zen, I’m pregnant. I’ll be due that month.”
  • Not exactly how you wanted to tell him, but it worked.
  • His eyes went wide and a big grin appeared on his face.
  • Forget the job, he was going to be a father??!
  • “Pregnant? We’re having a child?”
  • “Yes.”
  • He screams and pulls you into a hug.
  • Asks a bunch of questions, most of which you can’t answer.
  • “I just found out, Zen. I don’t know the gender yet.”


  • He’s at work when you find out
  • Eager to tell him, you call him
  • He’s in a meeting but he takes the call anyway. He always takes your calls.
  • As soon as he hears the news, meeting canceled
  • You’re pretty sure Driver Kim was ordered to speed considering how fast he gets home
  • And how did he have time to grab flowers??
  • He picks you up and gives you a tight hug while planting kisses all over your head.
  • He’s listing off all the things you need to do, all the people that need to be called, etc, etc
  • But you don’t pay much mind to that
  • You’re just happy he’s happy.



  • He wasn’t as excited as you expected.
  • He smiled and hugged you but it felt forced?
  • You thought maybe he was just distracted. You had interrupted him during his work.
  • But the rest of the day he was oddly quiet.
  • Of course, you’re worried.
  • It was one thing not getting the reaction you expected earlier, but now he was acting strange.
  • Quiet and distant like you did something wrong.
  • Maybe he doesn’t want a child.
  • Should have worn a condom then…
  • Maybe he’s just having one of his days?
  • You decide to confront him.
  • “Are you unhappy that I’m pregnant?”
  • “What! No!” He looks upset that you would even think that.
  • Asks you why.
  • When you tell him, he sighs and pulls you onto his lap and holds you close.
  • “I’m happy. I want to have a child with you. But…”
  • “But?” but what?
  • He explains he’s just worried about your safety and the childs safety and whether he can be a good parent since he never had a good example.
  • And he’s just stressed from dealing with his brother lately too.
  • But he is happy. He does want this child.
  • And he is sorry he acted weird.
  • Of course, you give him reassurances and tell him it will be okay.
  • By the next day, he’s the picture of excitement about it.
  • Already talking about how to make a really cool crib that flys.
  • No. Saeyoung. No flying cribs.


  • He’s not sure how to take this news.
  • How does one react to this? He hasn’t got a clue.
  • Probably should be happy.
  • But ya know…edgelord and all
  • No jumping up and down with joy here
  • Sort of shrugs at it.
  • Like. Okay. That’s cool.
  • Goes back to whatever he was doing.
  • Well, you sort of expected that.
  • Later he’ll ask some questions though.
  • Probably get nervous about it.
  • Curious about the process and maybe throws out some names.
  • Don’t worry, he’ll get excited with time.


  • The smile on his face couldn’t possible get any wider when you tell him the good news.
  • He’s practically glowing.
  • He pulls you in for a hug and gives you tons of kisses
  • Later that night, he approaches you with a very serious look and asks if he can talk to you about something.
  • He tells you he’s been thinking about the surgery again.
  • He wants to go through with it. He wants to be there for you and the child and that will be hard if he is blind.
  • And he wants to see his child
  • Of course, you’re on board 100%
  • The two of you meet with Jumin the next day and the surgery is scheduled as soon as possible.
  • Be prepared for lots of pregnancy photos!!


  • I feel like the first thing out of their mouth would be a curse word.
  • No smiling.
  • Like Seven, they are instantly worried.
  • Given their past, they’re always afraid something will happen to you because of them
  • Now a child might be in danger to….
  • Luckily, you expected this reaction.
  • You sit them down on the couch and hold their hands
  • Lots of reassurances and kisses
  • You tell them you want to keep the child. You want a family. Even if it’s dangerous. Life is dangerous.
  • They’re reluctant, but your determination sways them
  • By the end of your talk, they’re not exactly excited, but they do smile.
  • If this is what you want, they will make it happen

the-nerd-bird  asked:

Hello Julia! Your blog is such a great resource and you seem like a super nice person. I just finished my bachelor's degree and start on a master's in biology this fall. I'm very nervous and know I have a lot to learn about how grad school works, in addition to what I'll actually learn in classes. What's your advice for making the transition from undergrad to grad school as smooth as possible?

Hello! welcome! and congratulations on starting your masters! 

So i think that master and PhD programs can vary a little bit, and though i do know a bit about master programs from friends and classmates, my experience is wholly in PhD programs, so some of my advice may not apply. 

But it’s always a good idea to do these things the summer before you start:

  • Understand the requirements. This can pertain to lab rotations (if applicable), finding a thesis lab, when and how to sign up for a student ID and register for classes, orientation dates, other major deadlines/program requirements, etc. Review and remember. You will most likely have an orientation though, where they go over the necessary things like registering for classes. Feel free to ask any and all questions, and jot down contact information in case things happen. 
  • And speaking of lab rotations if applicable, contact labs of interest right now. You may even be able to start rotations a few weeks earlier to give yourself more time to figure out if that lab’s right for you. Also, summer’s usually the best time to get trained, as current lab members tend to have more time then. 
  • Get back into the swing of academia. This may be easier for you as you just finished college, but it’s nice to get back to the routine of reading textbooks/papers. A good way to start is by reading the papers of labs you’re interested in.
  • Figure out all the nitty gritty stuff of your program/position, such as health insurance, anything related to money (either stipends or fellowships or tuition), parking and/or transportation passes, etc etc. 
  • Get to know your classmates. I don’t know how tight-knit cohorts are in Masters programs, but when I started my PhD, an email thread was sent to all of us over the summer to let us introduce each other. Then someone created a Google group (or whatever it’s called; do those even exist anymore) so we could all learn about each other/find roommates/etc. It was definitely nice and took away a lot of that “first day of school” anxiety of not knowing anyone. 
  • Have your supplies ready. And by supplies I mean things like making sure your laptop/computer/tablet is ready to go (like if you need something fixed/upgraded, now is probably the best time to do it), a good data back-up system (be it an external hard-drive or cloud). Things like that. 
  • Aaaand take the time now to relax! A lot of people will agree that one of the most relaxing times ever is that summer before you start a new academic program. You don’t have the stress of homework/studying/projects yet, but you have the assurance that your next step is covered. So take a breather and make sure you’re recharged and ready to go!

Brad/Ray; DADT Repeal

If Ray weren’t so certain that he was dating an emotionless robot with a giant horse cock and an affinity for military-grade weaponry, he’d almost think Brad was trying to be romantic, flying all the way out to Nevada, Missouri, a week after the DADT repeal. As it is, Ray’s the one paying for dinner because Brad wouldn’t stop bitching about having to shell out three hundred bucks for the plane ticket, so romance is off the table.

Ray thinks that gives him a bit of leeway when it comes to fucking with Brad about their big gay love.

“So are we gonna talk about how we can fuck in public now without you getting arrested?” Ray asks around a mouthful of spaghetti. He’s not twirling it on his fork or anything that would classify him as having manners, but Brad doesn’t seem to care. Brad never cares when Ray’s being an idiot.

“I’m pretty confident that’s not what it means,” Brad tells him, and he’s doing that thing where he deflects just so he can seem cool and suave. He’s not, though; Ray’s got his number.

“Whatever, homes,” Ray says. “The world is missing out.”

As usual: P l e a s e take note that I’m comparing their planet positions and while they do help a lot with understanding how these two work together, it’s not exactly a Synastry. I don’t have their birth times, so this is mostly speculation since I can’t place their planets in actual houses, knowing exatcly what they stand for, and therefore cannot do a proper Synastry.

If you already did this and i just didn't see it, pls ignore this lol. If you don't want to do it, i'll understand. I love your tumblr and i hope you stay atound for a while😊 have a good day/night.

BTS Reaction To Their Biracial S/O Freaking Out About Other People’s Comments On Their Looks

Prompt: The two of you decided to go for a stroll around town, since it was such a nice day and it was rare for the two of you to both be free at the same time, so you wanted to take advantage of this time and enjoy a relaxing day. When the two of you happened to walk past a group of kids who immediately stopped chatting and looked you over and whispered you couldn’t help, but feel a little insecure about your appearance and hid behind him trying to not be seen. “What’s the matter jagi?” he’d say looking over at the group “they’re probably saying something about,right? Because I look like this…”


He’d take your hand moving you from behind him, smiling at you he’d nod his head which would make you shock for a second until he spoke up. “They probably are, you know why, because you’re the prettiest woman in all of Seoul” he’d chuckle placing a kiss upon your hand.


Yoongi would look at you with his mouth open for a moment ‘is she serious?!’ he’d think before blinking closing his mouth. “Don’t stress over those things Y/N, who cares what other people think, but between us they’re probably just jealous of your beautiful mixed genes” he’d give that adorable gummy smile, letting you know everything is alright.

Rap Monster:

“You just look too good Y/N that’s why they’re all looking at you” he’d look at the group seeing a few of guys look you up and down. “I just hope none of them try to sweep you away from me” he’d laugh holding your cheek in his hand “after all you’re mine and mine alone”


“Of course you attract stares Y/N it’s not often people get to witness such a perfect sunshine couple like us” he’d give you many kisses “in all seriousness though really jagi you shouldn’t worry they only stare because you truly are spectacular”. Hearing such words would definitely boost your spirits.


“I doubt that’s what they’re talking about jagi, but rather it’s bad or good things, shouldn’t bother you, only thing that matters is that your comfortable with yourself, I know I am, I love you, all of you” he’d make a heart with his hands before hugging you tight “don’t forget that, love yourself jagi”


At first he wouldn’t understand why you would think other people are talking about just because of the way you look. “I don’t see the problem here Y/N, clearly the others just don’t recognize someone with your beauty, luckily for me, I got you before anyone else did” cupping your face he’d give you a big kiss. Mwuah~💋


He’d be a little dramatic. “What would they even have to talk about?” he’d look at you for a few seconds before leaning against the wall letting out a sigh “oh my god jagi your beauty is blinding, that must be the reason, they just had to stop and stare at this shining star here” he’d wink, making you laugh nonetheless though feeling better about yourself.

Oh, neat. I got tagged by @mochamonsterhouse for a thing!

Hey, thanks for tagging me! I’m pretty sick right now, so this gave me something to do other than whine about how miserable and ill I am lol  

The rulez: Answer the questions and tag 20 some blogs you want to get to know better!

Time right now: 11:42 am

Last thing you googled: “talent bob ross gif” I was looking for this to send to someone

Favorite music artist: I guess I don’t really have a single favorite music artist. I go through genre phases, and I have favorite songs but I can’t think of one band or singer whose music I would choose to listen to exclusively.    

Song stuck in my head:  Shake it Off by Taylor Swift. Don’t look at me with your judgey eyes.

anonymous asked:

I've realised, a bit too late, that my ex-gf is the love of my life, meaning I'll probably never love anyone as much as I've loved her, romantically. I'm ok with this because there's some beauty in this realisation even though she's over me and she lives far away now. My problem is I'm afraid I'll be alone, and lonely, for a very long time because there are few lesbian/bi women where I live and I don't feel attraction easily. I feel depressed and overwhelmed by unmet needs, idk what to do

Hey, anon, let’s talk about this.

I think it’s normal to still feel for our exes, at least for a certain amount of time, and depending on the relationship and how it unfolded and ended, we do feel from time to time that we’ve just let “the love of our life” slip away. But I also feel like this narrative of having a One And Only, of having One Soulmate and whatnot can cause us some damage as well. I used to believe it too, when I was younger, and I, personally, do think there are some people we’re “destined” to meet, one way or another, but… There are over seven billion human beings on planet Earth. Of course we’re going to grow affectionate of a handful of them and of course the levels of affection will vary (or do we not love our friends? Do we not also feel intense connections to them that nobody can explain?), but to imagine that, in this pool of billions of human beings, if we screw up with a single one, we’ll have screwed up for the rest of our lives… Seems a bit unreasonable on our part.

But I get it, obviously. When we’re in love, our eyes fall only on that one woman who’s won our heart and to meddle with those feelings by means of reason can “ruin” it. When we think we’ve met the love of our life, losing her might come as a bit of a devastating blow. And that’s just the thing, isn’t it? You’ve said you’re afraid you’ll be alone for a long time and that you think you’ll never love anyone as much as you loved your ex-girlfriend. We’ve all been there. And not to cut her short, or any of the women any of us have been involved with in the past (or present!), but I have to tell you that it’s more of a feeling than a certainty. Just the fact of hanging on to it (”I will never love thus again”) can create an obstacle for yourself that will ensure you live up to that. Maybe you meet someone new whom you love deeply and,if you keep thinking “I shall never love as much as I already have”, will that aid or hinder you in this new relationship?

The fact of the matter is that, while being with someone does bring great joy, we cannot allow it to be the very centre of our lives, we cannot deposit all of our happiness and hope on a single human being and expect things never to change. We have to know that life is made of change, whether gradual or sudden, and the love we feel for someone can and will be subjected to that rule.

I’m going on and on here, I know, but I want you to know, anon, that you’re gonna be fine. Whether or not your ex truly is the love of your life is something I can’t say, though I wonder if such a title wouldn’t warrant, then, continuity? Which isn’t to say “go get her back”, but to ignite the question, “well, if that is true, why didn’t it work out?” and the answer will not be tied to anyone being a failure or anything of the sort. Sometimes that’s just how it is. Life will surprise us in more ways than we can count.

I don’t know how long it’s been since you’ve broken up. This is the sort of thing that usually comes into mind when it’s still fresh, but of course it can come back at any moment, I suppose. Especially when there are few available women close to us, yes, and even more so when we’re not the kind to fall in love with just about anyone (though I wonder how many of us do fall in love so easily). But hey, listen, low odds doesn’t mean no odds. I know that getting to know other women is always hard, we’re always a bit lost as to where we should start, but that doesn’t mean you won’t meet anyone or that you won’t feel attracted to them. Give yourself some time, enjoy your own company, don’t let yourself grow desperate or depressed out of solitude. Things are gonna turn out alright, you’ll see.

As for “unmet needs”, I won’t presume to know precisely what you’re referring to (though, obviously, I have an idea, lol), but that’s a bit of frustration you’ll also get over eventually. Be careful of the expectations you place on other people, though, just in case. We’re all merely human, too. As I’ve said, you can take this opportunity to spend some time with yourself, examine what you’re feeling, do things that bring you joy. If you still feel as if you aren’t going to love another woman as much as you loved your ex, I wouldn’t recommend diving head-first into another relationship right now – trust me, it’s not fair to anyone involved. So breathe a little. Take a walk, meditate, do something creative, listen to invigorating music, anything, and let your heart rest for a while. You’ll find it will be able to welcome someone else inside in time :)

After this torrent of words, I wish you all the best, anon. Things will work out for you, you’ll see!

"I'd ask you to stay, but I don't like you" for hoperai, please? ✨

royal!AU tag

Back when she’d been in the Corps, struggling to survive, Lightning had never really given much thought to history or relations with other kingdoms. Not only was that the old royal family’s business to worry about, but it was Serah’s department as a future teacher.

Now, Lightning wished that she could take a slice of that knowledge, just on the off chance it would get Sazh off her back.

“Seriously, have you even looked at those documents I’ve been givin’ you? At all? Even just a stern glance?”

“I’ve been busy,” Lightning muttered, which wasn’t too far from the truth - she’d just been busy avoiding any thought of diplomatic relations at her introduction ball. She hadn’t been the crown princess of the kingdom of Eden for too long and had mostly avoided the public eye. This ball would be her first real moment in the spotlight.

Which was why she was busy being terrified.
