No Scars To Your Beautiful (Negan x Plus Size Fem!Reader)

Requested by @mcrmy-for-life-2013 : could you do one where he saves a girl and she becomes one of his wives but she’s extremely self conscious about how she looks because she’s curvy and has tattoos and scars. And all he wants to do is prove to her that he thinks she’s beautiful. And she admits that she’s never had anyone actually make love to her and not just fuck her until they finished. And he shows her how a woman should be treated and she becomes his favorite. Can it be really smutty and fluffy?

A/N: I hope I did your request justice and that you’ll enjoy it. It’s my first time writing with a plus size reader, so I hope I don’t disappoint.

Warnings: Smut, Angst & Fluff, Self-Doubt, Body Confidence, Body Image, Caring & Loving Negan, Explicit Language, Swearing.

For most of your life you’ve been asking yourself the same question.

Who was this monster staring back at you in the mirror?

The various scars from the car accident you’d been in as a teenager was spread across your skin, and you’d been trying to cover them up with tattoos ever since. But one thing you couldn’t cover up how much you even tried was the curves on your body. Other girls had always said how much they envied your curves but you knew it had to be a lie. When all that stared back at you in the mirror was a lump of flesh and fat. When every guy you’d ever been with said you needed to lose weight. And you had tried. Both for them but mostly for yourself. Maybe you could finally be happy if you saw what you wanted to see in the mirror?

A perfect and flawless woman. But despite all of your efforts, the weight was still there. The curves were still there to taunt you every day.

But all of that was in the past. Now, in this post-apocalyptic world, there was no time to worry about the way one looked. And you hadn’t really. Until you met him. When Negan saved you from being eaten by a herd of biters.

I think my favorite way for Bi!Dean to become canon would be Sam and Dean at a diner and Dean checks out a dude VERRRRRY obviously (more so than in the past) and then Sam says, "Dean??" and Dean says, "What? Shut up." *insert gif of Sam doing that surprised and then "huh" face. you know the one*

I love this idea :)

I kinda have a headcanon that Mary herself would actually be bi (as she’s a big Dean mirror and Mary is Amara’s extension for exposing Dean’s feelings/inner self) because she was forced to love John, so why not, and we would get both of them checking out the same couple and some kinda ‘he’s hot’, well ‘she’s hot’ exchange lol.

Dean turns to Mary like:

JeanMarco Month Genre: Angst

H’okay. To start, I want to give my biggest apologies for coming into @jeanmarcomonth so late in the game. I’m working on one longer oneshot that will probably get posted the last week.

It’s been pure joy getting to see all of the content that everyone has contributed so far, and I don’t want to waste anymore time not being a part of it, so today I’m posting a couple of fics that I absolutely love.

A Different Song, by Quartetship“It’s hard waiting for things to change for the better when change is the only thing you’re really afraid of."A story about baseball, Broadway, the friends you make along the way, and becoming who you were meant to be.

ADS is fantastic. One of my favorite things about the way @quartetship writes is the way she balances raw vulnerability with strength of character. Jean and Marco aren’t perfect here, but they are perfect for each other, and the depth of their care for one another goes beyond whatever feelings are currently lingering on the surface.

A Little Faith, by FlecksofPoppy - Jean is a music snob at a record store; Marco is back in Trost after a nervous breakdown from an Ivy League. After being best friends at bible camp ten years before, they meet each other again. Jean swears a lot. Marco blushes. Reiner and Bertolt encourage Jean while also having fun. This fic has a lot of smut and a lot of feels.

I have reread Poppy’s fics more than anything else in this or any other fandom, and I will continue to do so until the end of time. I see this fic everywhere I go. Yes, part of it is the nineties vibe that I will forever be unapologetically entrenched in. Yes. But I cannot get over the relationships in this fic, and all of the side pieces that go with it. ALF-Verse is a place where the characters take life one obstacle at a time, and take care of each other while not apologizing for who they are. It’s a story about self-created family, and being there when your loved ones need you, even if in that moment they don’t want you there. It’s about celebrating love, owning up to your mistakes, making things right again, The Smiths, and Brittney Spears.

Say You Will (Or That You Wish You Could), by FriedcheesemoguBookstore AU. At Survey Books, 27 year old Marco Bodt is lucky enough to be friends with everyone he works with, until grade-A jerk Jean Kirchstein transfers from another store, and in spite of his bad attitude, Marco can’t seem to help but fall for him. Too bad Jean is oblivious and/or just plain stubborn, and everyone else thinks this is Marco’s worst idea ever. But in retail, you end up spending a lot of time with your coworkers regardless of what you want, and Marco will do his best to make every interaction with Jean count until they get somewhere. Or at least until Jean gets less awful.

We don’t have time to count all of the reasons I adore @friedcheesemogu’s story. But to make some honorable mentions, let’s start with the fact that this story has my favorite Marco out of all of the Marcos I have ever read. He’s so palpable that I kind of forget that I can’t just text him to ask about what his favorite part is in “Where The Red Fern Grows” and things like that. I adore the way he approaches Jean, and how he both loves him but doesn’t cater to his bull. I love how delighted Jean can be when he lets go of his worries long enough to breathe and work with what is all around him.

I found out about SYW at Otakon a few years ago, when Amber had a booth in Artist Alley, complete with a little sign that said, “Ask me about JeanMarco.” I’m pretty sure my adoration and desire to connect with Amber is the only thing in my life that’s prompted me to leave novel-length reviews via iphone as I read her story on the eight hour drive back home.

The Tale of Smokin’ Gun Kirschstein, by PilindielBefore Smokin’ Gun Kirschstein became a robber, before Smokin’ Gun Kirschstein became a killer, before Smokin’ Gun Kirschstein burned cigarettes into dead people’s skin, he was a young man named Jean. A schoolteacher who fell for a onion farmer in a small town by a lake.A story of lovers star-crossed and lovers lost.

The JeanMarco Holes AU I never knew I needed until @pilindiel came crashing into and tearing up my heart. It was so exciting the first time I read this, because I love Holes, and there was so much anticipation of how Pil was going to handle this story, and she did it so beautifully. The language she writes with helps you to settle into and feel at home within the story, as if you belong there and are just as affected by the goings-on as Jean is. I can’t help but range from giddy, to angry, to overly emotional while reading this; Marco’s unabashed charm, and Jean’s good-willed frustration come through loud and clear, and it’s just delicious.

Wisteria, by ButterflychansanModern AU where Marco Bodt is 26, the proud owner of a flower shop in New York City, perfectly content by himself having discussions with his flowers, when the man who broke his heart six years earlier walks through the front door.

I regularly allow this story to wreck me time and time again. I love it. It’s raw, unpretty, and full of fear, love, cowardice, and bravery. I latched onto Wisteria and everything that comes with it to the point that I’ve gone through all of @butterflychansan’s tumblr archives in order to read the headcanon scraps and little OC stories she’s invested into this modern AU. It’s such a complete world, and the journeys that each character take are just that fascinating to me.

I would not be a true Norman fan if I didn’t appreciate his relationship with Melissa. Holy crap those two will be the death of me one day! They are the epitome of a very strong friendship built over time. They praise each other constantly and respect each other, and their crazy banter is so much fun to watch. 

Here’s one of my favorite quote of Norman talking about Melissa: 

“It’s crazy because me, Norman, and Melissa are very close. We know each other really well. To do scenes like that, it can’t help but become personal. The first time we did that scene we started crying. Andy [Lincoln] and I have that too. We’ve seen each other go through these things for seven years. There are bonds that are real. She and I have that real connection. Steven [Yeun] and I had that connection.“

I finished my Voltron: Legendary Defender set!! I will have prints available at Fanime and Animazement this weekend! Voltron has become one of my all-time favorite shows and I’ve been really excited to share these with everyone~

If I have leftover prints after this weekend I will put them up on my Etsy.

I was introduced to Over The Garden Wall in 2015 by Jin, and I loved it. It’s become one of my favorite cartoons.

Never did I imagine that years later, I’d be doing a cover for the official comic by BOOM! Studios. It will be released this September. The solicitation may be found here:

This time around, my art is going to be on the main cover! And it feels surreal that the creator, Patrick McHale, saw my work. As a fan of the show, I’m very honored to have been given this chance.

I hope you guys like it <3

If Jane Austen wrote Star Trek:

Spock, the first officer whose advice was always effectual, possessed a strength of understanding, and coolness of judgement, which qualified him to be the counselor of the ship’s captain, and enabled him frequently to counteract, to the advantage of them all, that eagerness of mind in Captain Kirk which must generally have lead to imprudence. Spock had an excellent heart, positioned somewhere near his kidneys; his feelings were strong, but he knew how to govern them: it was a knowledge which his captain had yet to learn, and which one of his fellow crew members had resolved never to learn.

Dr. Leonard McCoy’s abilities were, in many respects, equal to Spock’s. He was sensible and clever; but eager in every thing; his sorrows, his joys, could have no moderation. He was generous, amiably cynical, interesting: he was everything but logical.


Professor McGonagall sat down behind her desk, frowning at Harry. Then she said:
‘Have a biscuit, Potter.’
'Have – what?’
'Have a biscuit,’ she repeated impatiently, indicating a tartan tin lying on top of one of the piles of papers on her desk. 'And sit down.'” (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix)

McGonagall was the first one who strongly believed Harry Potter would become an Auror, so here she is in my series of sketches :)

K-Pop Group BTS Reveals Its Biggest Beauty Secrets for Glowing Skin

Last month, BTS, a K-Pop group from Seoul, cemented itself in American pop culture by winning the Top Social Artist Award at the Billboard Music Awards. The second the boy band hit the magenta red carpet, thousands were exposed to the wonders of K-Pop. Since then, people have been quick to call BTS, which is short for Bangtan Sonyeondan (or Bulletproof Boy Scouts in English), the One Direction of South Korea. However, that’s just an easy way to give them some context. In reality, BTS is actually completely different. Why? The seven-piece group’s performances are complete with flawless choreography, expert rapping, high-fashion looks, and insanely catchy vocals. Oh yeah, and they look damn good while doing so.

No matter where BTS is, their skin is forever smooth and has an enviable glow to it. Their eyes are typically adorned with a subtle smoky eye look, which both Jin and Jimin told me is their favorite part of wearing makeup. Their lips always have that popsicle-stained look that everyone’s been craving lately. Their hair colors are constantly changing, too. In 2017 alone, Jimin’s hair has been bubblegum pink, silver, platinum blonde, sandy blonde, and caramel brown. If they had to choose just one shade, though, Rap Monster tells Allure that he prefers “ash gray and ash blue because these complement my skin tone well.” Agreed. Also, Suga added that his favorite hair color is blonde because “I just need to de-color and that’s it.”

The beauty aspect of BTS’s fame alone separates them from the likes of One Direction, the Jonas Brothers, and the Backstreet Boys. And their legions of fans, lovingly called A.R.M.Y., live for it. YouTube is filled with makeup tutorials inspired by looks from BTS’s music videos. A whole Tumblr account called Dewy Bangtan is even devoted to tracking down the beauty products BTS uses based on screenshots from behind-the-scenes videos.

If the names I mentioned above didn’t ring any bells, let me give you a quick summary of each of the seven members of BTS.


At 24, Jin is the oldest member of BTS, but he doesn’t act like it. He has a very specific skin care-related reason for that. In a recent video, he said, “I have a motto of my life, ‘If you behave young, your face becomes young, too.’” Noted. His good looks went viral after the Billboard Awards. On Twitter, he was called the “third one from the left”, accompanied by dozens of heart-eye emojis. His response? He’s “worldwide handsome.”


Many will identify with Suga, one of the group’s rappers, on a spiritual level, as I do. When he isn’t working his ass off producing, writing, and composing songs, he just likes to lay. Same. Just as his hair color preference suggests, he’s the most low-maintenance of the Bangtan Boys as far as beauty routines goes. He’s basically a granddad trapped in a 24-year-old’s body.


V’s interests lie in the finer things in life like Gucci, Van Gogh, and photography. The 21-year-old also makes some of the most hilarious facial expressions and has the most velvety voice in BTS. Some consider him to be the most handsome in the group, but I’ll let you decide.


Jimin is the king of selfies. BTS’s Twitter is filled with evidence of this statement. In their music videos, you can pick him out by his sharp dance moves. In a group photos, you can pick him out by his seriously adorable baby face. Don’t let it fool you — he’s not the youngest. He’s 21. And if anyone was wondering, he’s what K-Pop fans call my “bias,” aka my favorite. His pink hair sealed the deal for me.


Ok, now it’s time to talk about the youngest member of BTS. Jungkook, 19, is a classic, hard-working millennial. He can do everything, including sing (in English), dance, and rap, and do it all incredibly well. When not suited-up in a dress shirt or velvet bomber jacket on stage, you can catch him wearing a white T-shirt and Timberlands.

Rap Monster

Meet the leader of the group. BTS was literally built around the 22-year-old. As you probably could have guessed, Rap Monster, well, raps. He’s also BTS’s mouthpiece. Fluent in English, he usually takes the lead in stateside interviews. (Watching Friends helped him learn the language.) He has a habit of winking in photo shoot and making people across the world melt. Cringe-worthy hairstyles from BTS’s debut in 2013 aside, Rap Monster has some of the best looks of BTS.


I’m convinced J-Hope’s ever-positive personality is the true secret behind his glowing skin. (More on his actual secrets later.) Also 22, he’s like BTS’s portable charger, giving them (and fans) the energy and encouragement. Watching him dance will give you strength, too. Trust. He’s s-o g-o-o-d.

Now that we’re all on the same page, here’s the best part: BTS took a break from their massive world tour, which has made stops in the US, Australia, and Brazil, to chat with me about their skin care routines. Yup, you’re about to find out some of their secrets.

Why is it important to you to take good care of your skin?

Jin: “Skin is what completes my appearance. I value my looks very much, so it’s equally important to take good care of my skin — that’s a pivotal part of my face.”

J-Hope: “Taking good care of your skin is the No.1 rule for all celebs. I get to meet a lot of fans face-to-face at fan meetings and similar events, and I’d like to look my best for them.”

What’s your biggest skin concern?

Rap Monster: “My skin is dry most of the time, and my biggest concern is keeping it [moisturized]. I get zits from time to time and that concerns me as well.”

Jungkook: “I get pimples sometimes, and it’s very stressful.”

You guys travel a lot. Do you do any skin-care treatments while you’re on the plane to keep your skin from freaking out?

V: “On the plane, I dampen cotton pads with toner and put on lotion twice as much.”

Jimin: “I don’t really do anything extra special for my skin on the plane, but I try to drink as much water as possible.”

What are some of your favorite beauty products?

V: “I’ve been looking for my absolute favorite beauty product for a long time because my skin becomes dry and oily relatively fast. I haven’t found the right one, but I’m not giving up! Any recommendations?”

What is your skin routine like?

J-Hope: “[In the morning, I use] toner and face cream. [At night, the steps are] toner, essence, acne care, lotion, cream.”

Jungkook: “Toner and cream for night and morning routine.”

A lot of people find skin care routines to be a form of self care. Do you agree?

Rap Monster: “I totally agree. My favorite brand is Mediheal, and it has a variety of sheet masks you can choose from after a long day of work.”

Jimin: “I do agree because I try to clear my mind by cleansing my face after performances.”

Do you have any bad skin care habits?

Suga: “My bad habit is that I don’t take care of my skin.”

V: “I don’t particularly have a bad habit, but I’m worried about my skin having lack of elasticity. How can I prevent this?”

Are there any Korean beauty trends that you particularly love?

Jin: “I love sheet masks. I try to put them on whenever I feel my skin is dry and exposed too much to the sun. They help me make up for lost moisture and brighten my skin.”

Do you have any go-to skin care tips for clear, glowing skin?

J-Hope: “I try to go to the dermatologist when I have some free time after work.”

Jungkook: “I wish I had one! Let me know, and I’ll try.”

NEW VIDEO: “Becoming A Drag Queen” ft. Miss Fame - One of my favorite corners of queer culture is drag. There are so many ways to do drag, and there are so many reasons it’s so important to the LGBTQ+ world. While being transformed by the legendary Miss Fame, we explore the art of drag, what it means to people, and by the end, I’m ready for my Drag Race debut! Just kidding, those queens are TALENTED… but really though, I have so much respect for drag queens & what they do. THIS WAS SO FUN.
