Slip Through Your Lips (Seventeen Preference)
  • (AN: based off a request I got asking how Seventeen would sound in bed. pretty nsfw; it sucks that they won't let you put chats under a cut??? so smut warning and if you don't like, don't read. -Tanisha<3)
  • S.Coups/Seungcheol: When it comes to moans/whimpers/etc, S.Coups would actually be fairly quiet. He'd more of a giver than a taker, and when he is receiving, he is more just heavy breaths and the very occasional deep groan. He saves that groan for when he's coming, probably with your name, and if you can get him to make noise otherwise it's a huge accomplishment. That and he's also a big dirty talker. I mean, he's got a gorgeous deep voice and he just loves the way you react to it and he would just dirty talk even if it was for himself.
  • Jeonghan: He just makes the absolute best sex noises. I've read some fics about the boys singing during and actually whatever noises he made would be so beautiful sounding that you might mistake them for song. Like he's just so perfect that this would bleed into every aspect of life. Even when he's getting head and there's right or wrong way to do that, he was just look so gorgeous and sound ten thousand times better. And the sound of your name being moaned off his lips would actually almost kill you because it sounds so good.
  • Joshua/Jisoo: Just imagine being on your knees in front of him and you're giving him so much pleasure it's almost painful and he's just on the verge of cumming when his mouth hangs open and his voice cracks when he lets out a heavy "Jesus Christ". I love the irony and it actually really suits him (and now I just can't get that out of my head). He has such a sweet, small voice that hearing him mutter filthy things ("you like that, babygirl?" or "God, you look so good on my cock.") would be a contrast that you would never get over. And hearing him swear over and over in that sweet voice - it would wreck you. (Cause just the thought wrecks me but that's off topic.)
  • Jun: He would also be another quiet one. He's so concentrated on you and not blowing his load early that he gets pretty quiet during sex. And he's so athletic (with all the dance and the martial arts) that it would take a lot to getting him panting or breathing heavily. But this doesn't really bother you much.
  • Hoshi/Soonyoung: This kid won't shut up during sex. We all know he's like sex wrapped up in a cheesy sweatband and sex would be all or nothing with him and it's never nothing. So he groans, moans, whimpers, panting, huffing; any imaginable or unimaginable human noise to make during sex will come out of his mouth. He gets so into the head space of sex and really lets himself get lost in you that he never ever holds himself back vocally.
  • Wonwoo: I find him so hard to peg. He could either be very quiet or surprise you and burst out the worst/best kind of dirty talk you've ever heard and have the moans of a porn star. He would probably feel like his moans need to be a show for you, so he might exaggerate them a little. That's not even a bad thing. He wants to let you know you're doing a good job and turning him on and he can do that with his dirty words and dirty, dirty sounds.
  • Woozi/Jihoon: Whimpers; he has those shaky little whimpers, especially because he desperately tries to hold himself back. He can be kind of a grump and he's got this well-established thing about pride, but when that first, tiny little whimper escapes him you know you've broken him. Then they slowly get louder and more intense and some of them even become high pitched moans, all mixed in with gusting breaths. During sex he breaths like someone who's trying not to sound out of breath; and it's actually incredibly sexy.
  • DK/Seokmin: Loves to bit his lip and kiss you to mask his noises. He indulges himself much more in your moans and prefers not to have the attention on himself. If anything he lets out that epic, finishing moan when he's orgasming and it cracks his voice and shudders in the best way.
  • Mingyu: This motherfucker is a groaner. He groans full and deep and lets it rumble through his chest so you can see it and feel it and hear it so clear and just let it fuck you up. He doesn't shy away from making noise, and it's deep and manly and always serves to turn you on.
  • The8/Minghao: A giant puppy and kind of hard for me to imagine in terms of sex; if anything, he got gasps down pat. Whatever you do in bed either takes him by surprise or just leaves him breathless and this results in a lot of pitchy gasps, mixed with your name and maybe he would even surprise you with some swears. I feel like he'd also be a lip-biter, trying to hold his sounds back because he would shy of them.
  • Seungkwan: An amazing moaner; he has the most beautiful voice and when he really gets into holding music notes, it sounds like just pure sex moans. He moans so nicely during sex that he could make a living doing audio porn. All nice and low and raspy. Sometimes higher pitched, ending in gasps. And he's not really a dirty-talker, but he's incredibly bossy during sex, and not afraid to tell his partner what he wants from them and exactly how, and this just comes out sounding like the best dirty talk of the century. I mean the sounds he makes during sex are anybody's wet dream.
  • Vernon/Hansol: his moans are perfect. He's another one with a sex voice; and when he gets in the bedroom he lets lust takeover every inch of his body and his mind gets completely hazed over. This means he reacts to everything you do, moaning and saying your name and swearing (we all know how much he loves his swears) at each little move you make. His voice is usually pretty worn out after sex, and toward his orgasm he gets the best rasp in his voice that's the biggest turn-on for you. You work to make that rasp worse each time and sometimes even put him out of commission for rapping the next day.
  • Dino/Chan: A lot of panting. Even though he dances he still not quite used to the full exertion of sex but he's still there with you the whole time and eager and excited for it. He asks a lot of questions - he needs to know if he's doing this right (even if he done it once or twice before) and if you like it and what you're thinking because your pleasure is the most important thing. He lets the occasional moan slip through, when his mind gets lost, and it's really embarrassed. Most of the time his mind is just far too busy during sex to let his body make noise.

deeppxblue  asked:

what about linny (ginny/luna)? you can honestly write it whichever way you want to but if you could write them as friends with sexual tension that would be fucking great. thank you xx

I always, always imagine Luna as ace and Ginny as demi, so I’m not sure I succeeded with the sexual tension (but I also failed at delivering this on time so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ) [AO3 Link]

  • Ginny watched, entranced, as sunlight danced through the golden strands of Luna’s hair, how it tiptoed through the curls and onto her face, lights and shadows playing in the curves of her face. 
  • Luna looked celestial, godly, other-worldly and a host of other words that meant beautiful in a surreal, larger than life kind of way.
  • She watched as Luna threw her head back, bare feet jumping slightly on the wet grass of the quidditch field and body undulating to the beat of the music Ginny was playing for her. 
  • The suddenly and abruptly changing music pulled Ginny out of her reverie, eyes going wide as The Weird Sisters’ Party Chamber changed to something…a little too close to home. 
  • “Lord almighty, I feel my temperature rising…”
  • “Ooh,” Luna gasped, grinning as she shimmied closer to where Ginny was sitting cross-legged on the ground. “What song is that? I don’t think I’ve ever heard it before.”
  • “Uh, it’s muggle. By a bloke called Elvis Presley,” Ginny confessed, ears and cheeks burning up in humiliation as Presley sang about kisses lifting him higher. 
  • “It’s brilliant,” Luna said, hips swaying in a way that made Ginny’s throat and mouth feel parched. “Come on, then. Dance with me.”
  • “Uhhhhhhh-”
  • Not waiting for a response, Luna held out her hands to Ginny and pulled her up, wand still grasped in one hand as it played the song. Luna twirled closer till their was nothing but an inch of empty space between them, and Ginny felt lightheaded all of a sudden. 
  • It’s coming closer, the flames are now licking my body…”
  • Ginny gulped hard, trying to calm her rabbiting heart, and placed shaking hands on Luna’s hips in a show of Gryffindor courage. Luna grinned easily at that, throwing her arms around Ginny’s neck and pulling her closer still. 
  • Feeling the soft press of Luna’s body against her own was enough to send Ginny into overdrive. Her entire body felt like it was about to melt right off her bones and her stomach was a mess of muted excitement.
  • Ginny abruptly pushed away from her friend to prevent herself from doing something stupid like kissing Luna and did the world’s most awkward moonwalk away, combined with random peace signs and head bobbing. 
  • Instead of laughing at her like most would, Luna copied her moves, somehow managing to look ridiculous and adorable at the same time. 
  • Ginny was so done. 
  • “I wonder when I stopped envying beautiful girls and startednfalling in love with them instead,” Ginny said introspectively, watching Hermione correct her potions essay. 
  • “First year,” Hermione said without looking up from the parchment spread out in front of her. 
  • “Huh?” she asked in confusion. She was pretty sure her first year had been spent deep in infatuation with Harry.
  • “Amanda from Slytherin,” Hermione stated simply. 
  • “Ahh,” Ginny said with a fond smile, remembering the dimpled girl who looked way too beautiful in her school robes. 
  • “So, now that you’ve actually admitted that you swing for literally everyone,” Hermione said, giving Ginny her homework back, “what are you going to do about that little crush you have on Luna?”
  • Ginny sighed in frustration, starfishing out on her bed. “Nothing,” she said. “I proper courted Harry, and look how that turned out.”
  • “Luna’s not Harry, though,” Hermione pointed out. 
  • That had Ginny grinning at the ceiling. “No, she’s not.” 
  • The next day found Ginny sweating profusely as she checked out her reflection in a spoon before she marched to the Ravenclaw table in the Great Hall with purpose. 
  • Plopping down next to Luna, she gave her a grin that was probably a little too manic. “Hey, Luna,” she said. “How are you on this fine morning?”
  • “Not too good,” Luna replied with a smile. “I’m quite certain my dorm is invested with nargles because I can’t find half my books.” 
  • Ginny sat up straighter in excitement. For once, things were working her way! 
  • “Wow, that’s just perfect,” she said, pulling out a bottle of Nah-Nargles that had taken her a week to brew after diligently following every step in The Quibbler. “I made some Nah-Nargles for you.” 
  • Luna’s eyes widened in surprise and happiness as she grabbed the bottle from Ginny. “You did? Oh, that is the sweetest thing anyone has ever done for me!” 
  • Ginny’s whole face was burning with a pleased blush when Luna leaned forward to press a soothingly cold kiss to her cheek. 
  • “Thank you so much,” Luna whispered, eyes on the tiny blue bottle in her hands and cheeks a beautiful rosy pink, completely oblivious to the fact that Ginny’s soul had just transcended her mortal body.
  • “Ginny,” Luna said in that quiet voice that made every muscle unclench in Ginny’s body. She raised a pale hand to Ginny’s face, brushing away the hair itching her face. “You have beautiful eyes.” 
  • Ginny swallowed hard, breath stuttering at how close Luna was. “Y-Your eyes are much prettier than mine, though,” she choked out. 
  • Luna rolled her eyes, something she had definitely learnt from Ginny. “It’s not a competition,” she said. “You know what else I find really beautiful? Your name. Ginevra,” she pronounced carefully as if it was spell. “It’s a name befitting such a beautiful person.” 
  • “Uh,” Ginny replied eloquently but Luna just smiled. 
  • “So do we kiss now?” Luna asked innocently. 
  • Ginny choked on air once again, eyes wide in surprise and confusion. “Wh-aaat?” she drawled, voice scarily high pitched. “Wh-I mean-what do you-can you read minds? What is going on?” 
  • “Isn’t that what we’re supposed to do now?” Luna continued, raising her small hands to cup Ginny’s face. “You’ve been courting me and I’ve been courting you. Aren’t we supposed to kiss now that we’ve made our intentions clear and complimented each other?” 
  • “Kissing isn’t something you’re supposed to do, Luna,” Ginny said, a little uncomfortable. No matter how much she longer to kiss Luna, she didn’t want to be kissed out of an obligation. “It’s something you feel like doing because you really lo-like someone.” 
  • Luna’s grin just widened. “Well, I definitely love you. Do you love me too?”
  • This part was easy. Ginny had never been afraid of her feelings. 
  • She smiled, placing her hands on top of Luna’s. “Of course I do,” she replied. “I’ve loved you for quite a long time.” 
  • “So you want to kiss me too?” 
  • Ginny grinned, leaning forward to rub their noses together. “I’ve been wanting to kiss you for quite a long time.” 

Yes, I know, Nah-Nargles is lame af but I have a shit sense of humour and no ability to name things. We gon roll this way. 

anonymous asked:

Do you have any rwby singing headcannons? I have one where team rwby found out that yang could sing country really well when she was singing in the shower while everyone else was coming back from class.

Well obviously Weiss can sing. Not just sing but like…she could make a career out of it if she wanted to. Except she doesn’t really enjoy it - mostly because it’s something that was kind of forced on her a lot. She was trotted out by her father to impress and showcase. The talented daughter of Jacques Schnee. Singing for Weiss was never for her and because of that she’s really reserved about it. Ruby would love to hear her sing, but picked up very early on that it wasn’t anything to ask about and she never would.

Speaking of Ruby, she LOVES to sing. She’s just too darn squeaky and it sounds terrible. More so than that, Ruby loves to dance while she’s singing and sing so loud that everyone hears her. She makes the mistake one day of singing a song of Weiss’ and that caused a whole thing because Weiss found out that Ruby looked her up online and found video from a formal Schnee event. They eventually worked it out and that’s the first time Ruby ever managed to get Weiss to sing for her. Ruby told her it was beautiful and now Weiss doesn’t hate it quite as much. 

Blake can’t sing at all, and never tries, but she is the most music savvy of the entire group. Blake strikes me as a person who goes all in. If there’s something she loves she wants to know everything about it and surround herself with it. Reading was her first love but music was a close second and the combination of the two is her safe place. She also knows everything. She can tell you the names of band members and release dates on albums or exactly what live concert a certain recording was from. Blake is incredibly passionate about her music. 

As for Yang, I completely agree - she can sing and I derive this from the few times I’ve heard Barbara sing on her various social media platforms. It’s more quiet though, she whisper sings and it’s something she likes to do for her significant other - in this case Blake. She’ll record a little soft something and send it to Blake at random moments. Blake will be in the middle of class, get a message to her scroll and suddenly Yang’s softly singing and Blake has to quickly turn it off. Still, Blake loves it and Yang loves doing it but it’s only for people she cares about. It’s a talent she discovered when she was little singing lullabies for Ruby before bed because Summer (who had a beautiful voice that Yang hears every night before bed) wasn’t around to do it anymore.

You’d managed most of Catfish’s tours over the last two years. After the first one, after meeting Van, it was a given at the label and through management that you’d be there. Van said he’d not felt more comfortable around someone since he first started hanging with Larry as a kid. You were best friends, and when the tour was over you still spent a lot of time together. When he went to the U.S. to record The Ride you felt completely alone, and there was an emptiness in your life. Your friends laughed, and said that you deserved it for abandoning them all for him, but they forgave you and you began to socialise again.

You’d started to date Jackson about a month before the touring kicked off again. Back on the bus and around the boys, you felt like you’d come home. Telling them, telling Van, about Jackson didn’t seem important at first. It’s not like they ever hit on you; most of them had girlfriends, and they were all too respectful for that. Sometimes, when you’d pass out on Van’s hotel bed and felt his arm curl around you, you wondered if the line had been crossed. Your line was probably marked in a different place to other people’s, though. Van was your best friend, and you’d cuddle up with Bec or Tegan, so what was the difference with doing it with Van? You called Jackson every day, and he seemed okay with you being confined to small spaces with a bunch of boys. It was all okay.

One of my favorite things about the whole SKAM experience is the incredible music I've discovered thanks to this show. Like, I haven't stopped listening to Highasakite's "Lover, where do you live?" since I watched season 1 and it's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard in my life. And I'm not even gonna go into Gabrielle and "O Helga Natt"...

I couldn’t help but ask
For you to say it all again.
I tried to write it down
But I could never find a pen.
I’d give anything to hear
You say it one more time,
That the universe was made
Just to be seen by my eyes.

With shortness of breath, I’ll explain the infinite
How rare and beautiful it truly is that we exist.

1. “You’re So Vain,” Carly Simon, 1972
It was the shot heard ‘round the world that left everyone debating and wondering, “Which famous ex-lover did she write it about?” I’ve felt the ripples of that blaring public curiosity affect my own lyrics. I was a poetry-obsessed preteen the first time I heard that incredibly gen-ius kiss-off, “You’re so vain, you probably think this song is about you.” After hearing that, it was like a key had just unlocked this forbidden area of storytelling for me. You can say exactly what you feel, even if it’s bitter and brazen! Almost 10 years later, I sat in my dressing room in Boston. Carly Simon had just performed “You’re So Vain” with me in front of 65,000 fans. She leaned over and whispered to me who the song was written about — me, the one person who hadn’t asked her.

2. “This Kiss,” Faith Hill, 1998
I sang this song for my fourth-grade chorus audition. I think it changed the way I saw country music and music in general. Everyone loved “This Kiss,” not just country fans. Pop and rock fans loved it too. I guess you could say that theme rubbed off on me.

3. “Lego House,” Ed Sheeran, 2011
I was so intrigued by this song that I reached out to Ed to write for my album Red. I loved the cadence of the pre-chorus, “And it’s dark in a cold December, but I got you to keep me waa-arm.” We wrote in a Phoenix hotel room, ate In-N-Out burgers and essentially became a permanent fixture in each other’s lives.

4. “Blood Bank,” Bon Iver, 2009
I think this is one of the most beautiful love songs I’ve ever heard, because of the conversational lyrics. It’s so detailed, but in a sporadic way – just like a memory. My favorite lines: “That secret that we know, that we don’t know how to tell/I’m in love with your honor/I’m in love with your cheeks.” It’s dark, but feels romantic. I think I like this song because it reminds me of how love actually feels.

5. “The Middle,” Jimmy Eat World, 2001
I remember listening to this on the bus to school. I felt comforted by it, because I never felt like I really fit perfectly into any clique at school. I wish every kid who goes through those same feelings of loneliness could hear how Jim Adkins sings, “Don’t you worry what they tell themselves when you’re away.”

6. “Hands Down,” Dashboard Confessional, 2003
My high school experience was marked by memories of house-party singalongs of “Hands Down” and driving around with my best friend screaming the words to it. It’s the best recounting of an unforgettable first date I’ve ever heard.

7. “Backseat Freestyle,” Kendrick Lamar, 2012
This past year I moved to New York, and for the first time, I was dealing with dozens of paparazzi outside my place every day. At first, I got really anxious every time I’d be about to open the car door. They’d crowd around me and yell. Then one day I put my iPhone on shuffle, and “Backseat Freestyle” came on. Something about Kendrick’s voice and the beat made me feel safe. It was pretty much all I listened to that summer.

— PART 1 —

You were woken up by the sound of your cell phone ringing. You groaned as you reached for it and noticed the incoming call was from a number you didn’t recognize. Swearing under your breath, you answered the call, trying your hardest to make it sound like you hadn’t just been asleep.  

“Hello?” You felt your eyes drooping closed as you laid back against your pillows. Inwardly you prayed it was a wrong number so that you could go back to sleep.

“Yes, hi, is this (Y/N)?” The voice on the other end was masculine and unfamiliar.

“Yeah, it is.” You sat up in bed, trying to hide your disappointment that whoever it was actually meant to call you. “Who’s this?”

“My name is John Feldmann. I’m calling in response to one of your flyers. Are you still available to offer your services as a nanny?”

geekybones  asked:

... The quickest source (and also most direct) I can cite is the 1899 "The Nightless City", which details the Yoshiwara. Though the author uses the terms Oiran as wells as Tayuu, it more refers to pre-Edo top tier courtesans and is sometimes used to refer to Tayuu as well. However, throughout the entirety of the text, Tayuu are specifically the highest tier yuujo working in the Yoshiwara. Is this a bad source? Like I said, I've read EVERYWHERE that Tayuu were sex workers. Please elaborate! C:

I really hate to say it, but texts prior to the 1960s were really, really sexist and one sided (some still are), especially when it came to translations. “The Nightless City” is a text that’s written from a man’s point of view with no input on the subject from the women themselves. Also, it’s very unlikely that this man ever got to actually attend an ozashiki with a tayū, so he added their information from stuff that he heard from his friends (most likely). The biggest issue with the misconceptions behind tayū are:

-Besides being super, super exclusive, their patrons were all of the highest classes of society. Money could not buy your way into seeing a tayū, which is why most people never got to see one outside of a dochu. Many people confuse “class” with “money” back in the Edo Period because, while the majority of the wealth was centered in the very low merchant class, there was a very strict hierarchy and class system in place.


-They were/are artisans who basically spent their entire lives learning the fine arts that the court aristocrats learned, but to an even finer degree because that’s all they did. Hence why they were seen as being “equal” to the nobility. It’s really, really hard to actually say what “class” tayū were in, but we know that it was high enough for them to have access to the imperial court. There was a system within a system as to who could actually attend court, with the highest ranking being closest to the emperor and the lowest ranking, while still stupidly powerful, basically having access to the palace itself. Tayū were members of the 5th rank (technically the lowest), but this still gave them access to the court itself. In order to denote themselves as someone worthy of entering the palace they folded their collars inward on one side to show the red underneath on their juban, which was restricted to the nobility only.

-Tayū only existed in Kyoto, and with good reason. If you’re going to entertain the most powerful aristocrats in the country then you need to be close to where they’re gathered: the imperial palace in Kyoto. Shimabara is usually called a “red light district” and the name is deservedly so as prostitutes and other “peddlers of worldly goods” did work there once. All women in the quarters were licensed so that the government could collect taxes, but obviously there were different licenses for different jobs. The tayū share a classification very close to that of a geisha: they were allowed to entertain guests only and were not allowed to sell sex. To be caught doing otherwise would result in immediate banishment and revocation of their of license, basically leaving a woman on the street with just the kimono she’s wearing. With such a severe punishment the women tended to keep to the rules.

-Because of being located and working in the same district, tayū and oiran existed side-by-side, just as geisha and yūjo did. This only adds to more confusion since people back then were likely of the mindset of “gaudy attire = prostitute”, which is understandable given that tayu were far more elusive than the oiran. If you look at the famous ukiyo-e prints of the time you’ll notice that the vast majority of women were those who the public, and the artists themselves, had regular access to: the oiran, the yūjo, and the geisha. Tayū don’t actually appear too often in those prints because the artists were likely restricted to seeing them only while they were travelling or possibly at a memorial service. It’s a bit hard to get someone’s likeness onto paper when they move by so quickly. Plus, even if they made prints of tayū, the public wouldn’t really know their names like they knew the names of the oiran. The most beautiful oiran were known across the country and their popularity and fame was spread via ukiyo-e.

-The issue on tayū and sex is the same with geisha and sex: yes, sometimes stuff happened between closed doors that it technically shouldn’t have because it wasn’t in the official job description. With the tayū they would have been consorts of the nobility and were seen as a perfectly reputable match to be the mistress of a nobleman. Since the shogunate didn’t have too much control (or care really) over the palace, they kinda let the nobles write poetry and sing songs in relative peace. So, if tayū were doing “sexy stuff” on the side it would have likely been kept a sworn secret to those within the palace (’cause no one wants their “sexy stuff” taken away). When the nobility was all but completely dismantled after World War II this specifically forced tayū into their current role of keepers of tradition, but allowed for non-nobility to engage with them. It’s still stupidly hard to get an audience with a tayū today though since everyone who does have access once gained it decades ago through someone who was nobility.

Sherlocks waltz is one of the saddest (and most beautiful) pieces of music I've ever heard. I think it'd be interesting to survey people who have never seen the show and have no idea what the waltz is for and ask them if they think the person writing it was feeling happy, sad, anything in between.

Yeah, definitely, I would love to know what people think of this song without ANY context and NO title, just tell them “What do you think when you hear this song?”

I’m sure as hell betting it won’t be “happy marriage waltz someone’s best bro wrote for them”.
