Ok here it is, everyone: the best photo of the entire con akshsnjdjdj 😢 🙏 💛 I’m so happy that kalaely came up and asked for a photo together, they are so sweet and so insanely perfect as Emily I cryyyyy. ;u; 💕
A GREAT NIGHT YALL BAMBAM DEFS MY BIAS WRECKER NOW
We joined the line around 8 and were like probably 100th-170th in line for gold. We met amazing people in line, made our experience so good.
I was slightly disappointed because it was randomly chosen wristbands for hi touch or photo op we were given no choice. I got hi touch. Purple ones I’m assuming means photo op,
the people we lined up with mega babes:
So we found out no merch for Sydney. The merch truck came so late so I missed out on getting a light stick :( the crowd was dark without them. At 4 the line started moving bit by bit as everyone stood up so tension was high. When it hit 6pm Luna park closes so everyone in gold suddenly started running it was literally a stampede of people. Security didn’t have it handled well as line order just went into chaos
and I was crushed literally I had not been prepared for that this is how wild the line got no order what so ever people who camped out were greatly disadvantaged.
We ended up waiting so long to get in it was 7 already before they let us in but I slightly snaked my way into the right doors.
AND SPRINTED FOR MY LIFE so I ended up soooo close to the stage about 5 heads back but I was next to people who camped out. There were a lot of fansites which was quite annoying bc cameras were resting on me or they kept a pulling down my hand smh.
The curtain dropped and they performed Q I stood in shock for a whole minute bc their beauty is out of this world.
They are very real and amazing I literally was a gaping fish I had an out of body experience. You can hear me go off
in this video. After that they were doing games I’m sure you all heard how annoying the MC and translator were ion wanna talk about it.
BUT it was the moments I got noticed by 4/6 of GOT7 now lemme tell you.Emily and I were literally hyping them up bc our centre section of gold was fansites so it was quiet so we had to go off. The first person we hyped was Jinyoung we were like bouncing our arms chanting his name yknow like so. He imitated our hand movements and laughed so brightly covering his mouth WIG FLEW!
MARK NEXT we were hyping him going “YEAHHHH MARK” and he responded and
did that puckered surprised lips face and then laughed at us. Me and em looked at each other ‘passed out’ and looked back at Mark and he was cracking up at our reactions RIP.
Yugyeom is so cute he was on the right side of us so we really couldn’t
see him much but he did walk towards centre and I caught his eye.
And when that happens you gotta do something so I did a little hit the folks and he did it back and giggled wtf.
A video I recorded of like the games they played and some questions they did: Jackson.
OK SO BAMBAM NOTICED AND INTERACTED WITH ME NOT ONCE NOT TWICE BUT FIVE TIMES!
Every time I interacted with Bambam everyone around me was shook and had mouths wide open DID THAT. First time me and em were doing our little hype hand sign chanting double b and he pointed and laughed at it then imitated. I did a really fucking cringy dab when we made eye contact and Bambam dead-ass laughed with his head back. I’m black so I dab like so.
Now it went back to performances and they performed fly. They performed sky way next the vid was too long for me to post but I’ll try again later. Next was hard carry emily and I went off and just danced the whole time. Hard Carry performance.
They then did the giveaway which was the signed letters and Bambams mic was working so I got eye contact with him AGAIN.
His microphone wasn’t working when he got back on stage and I was like
“LET BAMBAM SPEAK” and then he was like me?? And I was mouthing to him “is your mic on we can’t hear you?” And he was like scrunching his face confused and tapped his mic and I just showed my ear to him then shrugged and he laughed then he had to pay attention to the MC again FUCKING WIG MAN.
My best friend Emily was hyping Bambamup to dab and I joined her to get his attention:
Bambam was wiping his face with a towel and I was like shid I want that so I gestured to him that I wanted it. He looked up at me and was acting dumb acting like he didn’t know what
the towel was and just dropped it on the floor and walked off.
At this point I was like a head or two away from barricade I was ready to swoop in but I gotta be patient.
Got7 performned NEVER EVER, sorry for messy camera work Yugyeom really got CLOSE
They then said their goodbyes you know the go like this has been got7 :(
and then there was an open space on the barricade but low and behold a Yugyeom fansite really was anti and didn’t want me on barricade. So somehow I ended up on barricade and I was like “oh word true shit?”
but the Yugyeom fansite had her elbows up on the barricade.
And it was just before encore so I was like I wanna see this but she would not move with her camera legit glaring at me.
So encore starts and I’m all good at barricade because she snapping Yugyeom
but its barricade so pushing starts AND YOU CAN’T DO ANYTHING WHEN
YOU’RE AT THE FRONT so she flips her shit and starts swearing at me in Korean while I’m jamming out to ‘out’ and then I turn to her like “we are not doing this right now” and I was like they’re pushing
and as I said pushing it blew her ear BC PUSHING GOT THAT PU sound and
she went off more and elbowed me hard, security did nothing
but karma to her because Yugyeom did not look her way even once while I got interaction with him so..
They came out for encore and I was on barricade and was so shook like I never dreamed this was gonna happen.
Me on the barricade during encore lol to the people that camped out! I arrived at 8am.
I had an out of body experience when this happenedJB was sooooo close
I was looking through my videos JB really was staying in the centre so was Bambam
JB and Jinyoung looking in my camera:
Bambam teased me AGAIN when I asked for his towel during encore and I-
I was that girl asking him for a towel 3 times lmfao he’s a tease
HE ENDED UP THROWING IT TO A RANDOM SPOT I WAS SO PRESSED.
Go higher was next encore song and girl I went deaf it was so hype I recorded like tiny bits went off during the rest.
I WAS BOUNCING WITH THEM IT WAS AMAZING I GOT HYPE.
This concluded the concert then it was hi touch AND BEST BELIEVE I GOT MY BLOTTING PAPER AND EYEBROW PENCIL OUT
#GOT7inSydney : hi touch experience
I’m the girl with the braids.(and brown bag) Order was Mark, yugyeom, bambam, jinyoung, jaebum, Jackson. Their hands were big wide and so soft and they were taller than me I was shook bc I’m 5'7 (170cm) and was wearing platform boots.
I remember marks bright smile he was the first face I saw and I said “thank you” he’s honestly so gorgeous. Yugyeom is so beautiful I said thankyou to him too and hi fived him quickly.
BamBam remembered me and I told him “you were so lit” and held his hand
then pointed at him and he pointed back and said “you too”
jinyoung i hi fived and he gave me the cutest smile his eye smile heals lives I love those wrinkles honestly.
I had tunnel vision for jaebum he was all I could see I was in shock.
His forehead is so big and like shiny and flawless and clear and his face omg.
He has like a lil dimple on the side of his face his hand is so big and he’s PALE you guys.His hair was wavy and had red orange hues i was in sooo deep and his earring are so nice where to cop???
I leaned into him as you see in the vid so I could see his eyes and I stared into his eyes and said
“I love you so much” and he did that wide closed lipped smile and his
eye smile AND HIS EYE MOLES WTF I HELD HIS HAND LIKE REAL TIGHT
AND SQUEEZED IT I really am whipped.
Jackson did a little squirtle smile and then did a big smile with teeth and CRINKLEY EYES WITH IT AS I SAID
“thank you so much for coming PLEASE come back please!!” Then I walked off the stage and
he yelled back “OKAY” I was like in shock so I didn’t hear him afbksnsl BUT HELD HIS HAND REALLY HARD TOO
This is a lesbian semi rapid pregnancy fluff story. I love rapid
pregnancy stories but I only like fluffy, sweet stories where the growth
is noticeable, but not violent or taking place over the span of a few
seconds. I also like set up and some sweet character interactions. This
is my first short story like this so I hope everyone enjoys, but please
leave criticism if you feel like it is needed.
You and your wife Sarah are dropped off by the
taxi, and you unload your bags. The sunrise has just started, the sky
is a light purple that the orange is just starting to fade in. The salty
beach air rushes by you; it has been 7 years since your honeymoon you
went to the beach. You’re here over the 4 day weekend at The Agency for
Parenthood. You saw advertised that over the span of 4 days all the
proper arrangements can be made to where you can go home with a healthy
baby. Over the phone there wasn’t information given, just the travel
arrangements were made. You and your wife had always wanted to raise a
family, but it is harder to do so naturally being a lesbian couple. But
in only 4 days? Maybe it’s an adoption agency where you meet with the
expectant mother and get matched over the weekend. They figured they
would go along, it was a beach resort and if they didn’t like it they
could get a hotel and just have a relaxing weekend together away from
the bustling city. You see other couples getting their stuff together to
An employee rushes over and helps to gather your
belongings. Your items are taken to the suite where you will be staying
in, you have been instructed to go to the auditorium to await further
instructions. The facility is top notch, 5 stars. The building was
alabaster white, marble floors, and wide windows facing the glistening,
emerald green ocean and sandy shores. Immediately upon entering you
smell savory food, assuming an open buffet must be nearby. This place
looks fantastic! You do see several pregnant women waddling around in
various stages of pregnancy. Some are in their swimsuits, their swollen,
glowing bodies are barely contained by the fabric, leaving through the
glass large doors to enjoy the beach. You whisper to Sarah how exciting
it will be to get to know these ladies and hopefully be matched. You
brought a scrapbook with photos of their life at home just in case they
needed to present themselves.
You both find your seats in the
auditorium, there is about 50 or so seats. Other couples find their way
in and after an hour the room is filled with small chatter. The doors
close, the lights dim, and just the small stage has light. After a few
moments a middle aged woman, walks into the stage, wearing a large white
lab coat over her black pants suit.
“Good morning everyone! I am
Dr. Abagail Harris, founder of The Agency of Parenthood. I hope you find
our accommodations acceptable during your stay here.” She continues to
go over some basic rules of the facility, like where certain locations
are on the campus, services provided, and emergency protocol. The
audience grows restless.
“Now, the question you all have: how does
all over this work? You all have one thing in common, you all want to
start a family.” You and the audience start to quiet down to listen
“You might think upon seeing our other clients here
that this is an adoption agency. That is not the case, your children
will be biologically yours. The medical technology I have here is highly
coveted by certain unscrupulous groups, so please understand the
secrecy up to this point.” While there was background chatter during the
other parts of the presentation, the audience is now deathly quiet,
awaiting to hear what will happen.
Dr. Harris pauses for dramatic
effect, smiling wide. “I know we have several same sex couples here,
and the child will be biological from both of you as well” Sarah
squeezes your hand, you look over and she has a grin as big as the
moment you proposed to her all those years ago. You squeeze back,
feeling the engagement ring on her finger you gave her and continue to
“This is a type of fertility treatment we have here. But
we know a lot of you are busy business men and women. You have planes to
catch, meetings to secure multi million dollar deals across the globe
next week. Do not fear, your busy lives will not be on hold the next 9
months. You can leave with a biological child of your own in 4 days. I
have pioneered technology to expedite the pregnancy, to better
accommodate the lifestyle of the 21st century family.” You and the
audience gasps in awe at the news.
Dr. Harris starts to giggle a
little bit. “Don’t worry, it is completely safe. You saw our other
clients as you entered, they are enjoying the sugar sand beaches,
splashing in the cool ocean. We have only the best doctors medical staff
the world has to offer. If there was a medical emergency, which hasn’t
happened in the 10 years we have been open…” She knocks on a wooden
support beam for the stage for comedic effect “…we do have a full
operatory room that our staff is trained to handle any emergency. In
fact, our first patient is yours truely.” Behind her on the projection
screen is a collage of photos, a younger Dr. Harris in various stages of
pregnancy, then a group photo of her family that includes 6 children.
“I did not open this facility until I had proof of the technology. I
found out I was infertile when I first got married and I feared I could
never have a family. My lifes work has been bringing children into the
world that otherwise could not be here. No medical condition can hold
you back from having a family.”
The audience is now beyond
excited, you can hear all the couples whispering to each other, smiles
across the audience. You give Sarah a peck on the cheek. You feel her
cheek wet from tears of joy. You wrap your arm around her shoulders,
holding her firm.
“My staff will answer more specific questions
you may have during the medical exam, which is where you will be going
next. It’s going to be a busy next few days, so no time to waste!“ She
waved to the audience and the back doors opened on cue.
presentation the white lab coat seemed to unbutton. As she was walking
off stage, the jacket swept to her sides and behind her. You notice the
pale skin of her round stomach peek out from under her black blouse,
obviously not meant as a maternity shirt. She hurriedly tucked it back
down a few moments later when she realized it. You giggle to yourself,
it seems that Dr. Harris isn’t even done adding to her family. You hold
Sarah hand as you make your way out.
As everyone leaves the
auditorium, there are medical staff with signs each having a different
surname on them. You find your family name and are greeted by Mary, your
personal nurse and guide over the weekend. She is young, no older than
25. She is just about your height, 5'1”. Her black, long hair and dark
skin contrasts with the white lab coat she is wearing. She walks the
both of you into a small medical room down a branching hallway and
begins to go over each of your health history.
As she concludes
the basic medical exam, Mary starts going over the fertility treatment:
DNA will be collected from the couple and a zygote will be created using
the medical technology at hand. She continues “…and as both of you are
women, you have an unique situation. If you want, you can have twins
that each of you carry.” You look at Sarahs big brown eyes in
excitement. You both have always wanted to have the experience of
pregnancy. “The advantage of this is that you can carry one of the twins
without the additional bodily stresses that having multiples cause.”
That also sounded good.
You have a twin brother and you did always
hope to replicate the experience of being a twin with your own child.
After some discussion, you both decide that this might be the only time
you will be able to do this and agree to each carry a child.
like Dr. Harris said, this is completely safe.” Mary pulls out her cell
phone and shows you photos of her heavily pregnant, the photo dated
just last weekend! The next photo she shows is of her 3 beautiful
children, one of them a little girl only a few days old. “Each and every
medical staff member is required to have completed the treatment as
well, so we can best answer your questions. And yes, my lovely little
Emily there was brought into the world last week!” You would of never
guessed that she would recover physically so quickly. But then again Dr.
Harris is working on child number 7, the process must be easy.
continues “Each of the 40 weeks of pregnancy have been reduced to 40
hours. Within 2 days the fertilized egg will form into a fully formed
baby. The 3rd day must stay at the last stage of pregnancy, this stage
helps decelerate the fetal growth so they don’t continue to grow rapidly
after they are born. The final day here after birth is preparing for
the journey home and making vital purchases for the new family member.
We will provide what you will need for the first month. Tomorrow
morning you will have an ultrasound to determine the gender of the
children, then you will meet with our nursery specialists to have a
fully stocked nursery installed in your home while you are here…well…”
Mary pats at her currently slim stomach. “…becoming fully stocked
yourself.” You all giggle at the joke, but it is also a little nervous
sounding as the two of you are slowly taking in the reality of the
There are two medical exam tables in this room. Mary
instructs you both to get on one after you disrobe. She leaves the room
gather equipment. You both start to take off your clothes and place them
in the basket provided. You take an extra long glance at Sarah, she is
just as beautiful as the day you met 10 years ago. She is about 4 inches
taller than you and is dark as midnight. People tease that the two of
you are like night and day since you look polar opposites. The bright
lights from the lamps reflect off her skin like shooting stars across
the night sky. Sarah has always been a little self conscious of carrying
an extra 20 pounds than what she would like, but you find her curves
soft and lovely. You have been jealous, yourself always small and
petite, always struggling to keep weight on. You try to imagine her with
child; her chubby belly that you love to play with, instead full and
tight, her belly button popped out from the growing child. Her breasts
swelling past their modest handful, you imagine them spilling out the
sides of your hands as you gently tease her enlarged, even darker
nipples. You then realize that you too would be full figured in every
way soon, no longer small and frail. Your heart races, you cannot
control your imagination. Firm, swollen round bellys rubbing against
each other as you try to hug each other. The only thing that snaps you
out of it is the knock on the door. Mary is announcing her return to
start the process. You look at Sarah and she seems flustered too,
“It seems we were having simular thoughts…” She walks
over to you and gives you a gentle kiss as she helps you finish
undressing, slipping the loose jeggings and tank top off. She slowly
rubs your bare stomach, then kisses you on the cheek. Sarah and you hop
on the tables and cover yourself with the thin paper blankets provides.
Sarah shouts that you both are ready for her to enter.
wheels in various equipment and about 3 other medical staff follow
behind. Mary is starting up the equipment as she proceeds to discuss the
next steps. “For this part of proceedure you must be placed under
general anesthesia for the next 6 hours, the DNA samples can be
uncomfortable to gather. Once we place the fertilized eggs in your womb,
any movement can disrupt impregnation since this is such a delicate
process. You will awaken when we confirm that impregnation was
successful. At that point you can proceed to enjoy the next 3 days at
your leasure.” You see various other medical equipment being wheeled all
around you, the staff placing the sensors on you and Sarah. You feel
the pinches of multiple needles being placed in your arms, attached to
multiple IV bags. Your heart is now racing from being nervous. This is
happening. You see Sarah hand reach out to hold yours, also connected to
IV bags. You grasp her hand firmly, feeling with her engagement ring
again. Mary starts counting backwards as you both go under.
love you Sarah.” You say shakily. You look into her eyes, wet from tears
of excitement. Her full lips start to open to respond but the darkness
of sleep pulls you under before you can hear her response.
awaken slowly, blinking in and out on consciousness for what seems
forever. The bright lights are like staring into the sun, you rub your
eyes as you come to. You gain enough awareness to look around for Sarah.
She is putting on her sundress, appearing to have awoken much sooner
than you. You see that the IV needles are gone, replaced with band aids.
You notice a watch on your left wrist. It says 4:41, but that can’t be
right if you were under for 6 hours…
Mary speaks from behind you.
“Good evening! Everything was a stunning success!” You struggle to sit
up, but manage to do so with help from Mary. You look down at your
belly, still flat. You then realize the paper blanket has been removed
and you curl up, embarrassed from being stark naked.
worry about that, we see naked women all the time. But I understand how
you feel.” She reaches for the clothes basket and hands you the floral
tank top and denim jeggings you wore in. She turns around to let you
clothe yourself. She continues to explain while turned around.
both have been pregnant for 4 hours at this point. So this is just like
the fourth week of pregnancy. You each have a watch, timed to the exact
moment when the pregnancy started.” You look at the watch just after
slipping on your tank top and just as she said, it says 4:42. Makes
sense now. The tank top has a built in bra shelf that for your small,
just barely there breasts fit into. Honestly if anything it’s still too
big and the shirt is an extra small already. “This will count up to 40
hours, when gestation will suspend for a whole day to stop the
accellerated growth. Wouldn’t want your bouncing babies to grow up too
fast, they already do at a natural pace!”
You finish zipping up
your jeans, which you do notice are a tiny little tighter than usual.
Before if anything stuck out it was your hip bones. Now the hip bones
are hidden away like you have always wanted them to be. You do finally
realize that you are absolutely famished! You hear Sarah stomach growl
from the other side of the room. Laughing, you walk over and reach for
your wife’s hand. You both are grinning from ear to ear.
will be growing at an unnatural pace, so I would recommend heading up
to your rooms and slipping into something more..accommodating. The
buffet is open 24/7, so feel free to eat up! The typical week that you
start to show is around 12, so around 2 in the morning is when you’ll
actually start filling out in the middle. You’ll be a whole different
person when you wake up tomorrow morning!”
Mary opens the door
and gives you your room key, room 245. She gives you directions on how
to get there, the resort being so huge. Hand in hand, you both walk out
and enter the main lobby area where people are heading for dinner. It
smells so wonderful, your mouth starts to fill with saliva.
our room is at the other end of the resort, let’s go ahead and grab
some chow!” Sarah pats her soft tummy “Afterall, we are eating for 4
You enter the dining room and immediately taken back at the
sheer amount of food. A huge buffet line with every kind of food you can
think of, staff restocking the popular items. You see all around
couples having dinner. The women early in their pregnancy are all along
the buffet line getting their food, while you see all the women very
full with child sitting down at the tables, their husbands and not
pregnant spouses getting them probably their third plate of food. You
look over at each others bodies and realize this will be us in just a
day! You both make your way to the buffet line and fill up your plates.
find a table with a couple you sat next to during the presentation.
They wave you down and you both take a seat. As you are seated, your
jeans dig into your sides and stomach. You do your best to adjust them
to make yourself comfortable.
You spend hours talking and eating
with the couple. Their names are Justin and Darlene, a husband and wife
CEO team for a business software company. Over the years they could
never concieve a child naturally, but 2 years ago they had their first
child thanks to The Agency for Parenthood. They hired a babysitter for
their son and they hope for a daughter to complete their family. Sarah,
being the more social one, fills them in on your story. You add in
important details as needed, but between the bites you gaze on Sarah and
are reminded of why beyond her beauty you fell in love with her; her
ability to start a conversation with anyone is how she met you. You wish
you had the gift of the gab like her, but you also just love the melody
of her voice as she spins tales of their adventurous early years of
The hours passes by, eating plate and plate of
delicious food: mac and cheese, glazed ham, steak, biscuts, nearly
everything at least once! You wish you thought ahead like Sarah and worn
a dress, your pants are just aching to be off at this point, you feel
the b pants digging in. You try to adjust them and now there is a quite
noticeable, but small still, fat spilling out all around the belt of
jeggings. You reach your hand feel your skin over your belt line, its
soft, just fat; not the firm, small round belly you hope to be sporting
when you wake up tomorrow morning. But this is the most you ever filled
out any item of clothing. You guess you might actually fit a size 1
currently instead of the 00 you typical have to wear. After laughs and
sharing stories, photos on your phone of your pets and family, it is
nearly 9pm and you both figure it is time to get ready for bed. You both
ate so much food, your body is busy digesting it and is begging for
sleep. You all give hugs and look forward to seeing them on campus
tomorrow, excited to share upcoming baby bumps!
You leave the
dining hall and make it to your room. It’s a solid 10 minute walk, you
paid extra for a suite that overlooks the ocean, but with that comes
extra walking to get such a remote room. You hold your wife’s hand and
head down the hallways. You pass by some night owl couples who prefer
moonlight to sunlight and making their way out now. You see one couple,
both of them probably 30 hours into their pregnancies, heading out to
the beach, hand on the smalls of their back for support, for what little
of a moonlight beach waddle they can do. Their swimsuits can barely
contain their newly formed bodies, breasts overflowing the bikini tops,
the bottoms barely covering the nessary parts, being stretched as their
hips obviously has widened signifigantly to house their evergrowing
children. Their sway backwards to accomodate the new center of gravity
matches the palm trees against the ocean wind, bending back as well.
Their free hand is rubbing each other’s swollen tummys. Even though it
is night, those women are glowing like the sun. You smile and make a
mental note to take Sarah out on a night walk while here.
notice as you walk that there is a little bit more of jiggle to your
breasts as you take your steps. Your breasts before were barely a size A
cup, not even enough to jiggle even if you jumped. The built in bra for
your top is struggling to support your breasts, now easily large enough
where they have their own independent movement. You have never
experienced this before and now understand why large breasted women are
always complaining about bras with no support. As you walk, the skin of
your swollen breasts tug down slightly with each step, causing some
discomfort. Not as uncomfortable as the jeans though, they have to get
off the moment you enter the room! All the buttered crab legs and thick
lobster bisque you ate is finding their place on your body quicker than
you expected. Your free hand goes to your hips; you now have what they
jokingly call a muffin top. As you walk your breasts jiggle with your
new expanded waist.
Your room is finally found and you enter.
Sarah barely closes the door behind her before you take off your top.
You feel the bounce of your breasts as the bra frees them, you feel them
move for a small moment before they settle. You start to unbutton your
pants and work your fingers to the zipper, but immediately forces itself
open before you could even begin. You let out a sigh of relief. You
brushed against your belly while your hand was undoing the button. Is it
just you or does your belly already feel a bit firmer, a little more
rounded? Can’t be, you look a your watch and it’s only hour 7, way
sooner than the typical week you start to show. Sarah walks over to help
you undress, she rubs her fingers along the red imprints from where
your jeans were digging in.
“Hmm, you always thought you were too
skinny, now you know how I feel after pizza night! I always
thought…you….are just perfect…but you might be a different kind of
perfect like this…” She gently rubs the indention lines, using them to
guide her fingers. She continues to explore your expanding hips and
beyond, slightly pressing on your tummy to see if it feels different. It
is a little firmer, gives more resistance when she presses. You both
notice and exchange smiles. Sarah leans over, gives your belly button a
kiss and helps to remove the rest of the pants. She leans over in a way
that purposefully shows her cleavage. Her breasts slightly overfilled
the top of her bra, she is obviously going though the same changes as
you are. You feel warm, you cannot wait to get her to the bed. You start
to unbutton her dress when you both are caught off guard by your jeans.
This was the only pair of jeans you owned that you didn’t need a belt
to keep them up, even with that the extra fabric in the legs previously
swished when walking. Sarah is having to tug rather hard on your jeans
to remove them. Your breasts and midsection were not the only thing that
has grown, but your legs have additional weight on them too.
need you to get on the bed so I can help get these off of you, you have
grown so much already!” You lay down, noticing your breasts flattening
out and to the side a bit as they do when they are of a larger cup size.
With Sarahs help you shimmy the jeggings off. You lean back on the bed
with relief when they finally let loose of your legs. The uncomfortable
pressure of the waist band digging into your sides must have prevented
you from noticing how tight the legs were. You see on your pale legs
more red indention marks from where the pant seems were pressing against
your growing thighs, but as you rub the indention marks you also feel
other lines…you see them almost purple and along your hips and inside of
your thighs, the most growth so far. Stretch marks. You are 31 but you
finally got them! Sarah proceeds to quickly unbutton her dress and
tosses it and your pants next to the luggage the staff left by the door.
She jumps on bed with you, you and your new bodies all bounce with the
bed springs up and down. You both hug and kiss each other, rolling on
the bed, skin touching skin. You don’t notice as much changes on Sarah
other than her slightly larger breasts, but you know that will come. You
caress her breast with one hand, the other placing the other nipple to
your lips, kissing them softly. She sharply gasps and moans, the sudden
sensitivity freezing her in pure pleasure. The new changes to each of
your bodies has opened a new world for sexual exploration. At this point
you both planned on circumnavigating the expanding globes that are your
tummys and elsewhere, leaving no area of skin untouched.
night is simply magical, even better than your honeymoon 7 years ago, if
that was possible. The hours pass and you both eventually fall asleep,
her spooning you, a hand absently on your new breast, sending shivers
over your bidy when her fingertips brush against your enlarged nipple.
You realize this is the first time it can actually be cupped a little
bit by hand, something Sarah especially made her aware of tonight. You
curl up, your favorite sleeping position, and you feel a definite bulge
from your swelling tummy when you bring your thighs up close to your
body, it being called the fetal position just being ironic in this case.
You bring your hand to feel it, and now you have a definate pregnant
belly, firm and warm as you rub it slowly. You see is the watch on your
wrist, reading hour 10 of the pregnancy.
Your dreams are of your
new family: 4 toddler aged children running around playing tag. In your
dream you look over to Sarah on your porch swing, heavily pregnant,
swollen breasts resting on top of her belly that has spread her legs so
wide apart. She has a shirt on, but it barely covers her enlarged popped
out belly button that stretches the shirt to its limit. She white skirt
she is wearing is nearly hidden by her belly that extends to the middle
of her dark thighs. You are holding the small of your back, taking
your time to lean back into the swing, as to not fall over due to your
own even larger belly that when you finally seat almost extends to your
knees, breasts bounce and then settle to the sides of your firm, almost
oblong shaped stomach under a loose sundress. The dream ends with the
two of you hopelessly squeezed together, each of your thighs pressing
and taking up the empty space under arm rest of the swing. The two
person swing didn’t take into account women carrying each a set of
twins, making it 6 people. Sarah, you and your four children laughs as
they struggle to help you both out of the swing. While dreaming you hold
the small swell of your growing child with your hand.
sleeping hours pass, it taking up more and more of your hand. You wake
up once in the middle of the night due to something pushing against the
small of your back, tickling as it creeps up your spine. As you turn
over to get more comfortable, sleep still in your eyes, the moonlight
reflects off of Sarahs now noticable baby bump, her soft belly you love
now taught, the softness that was once there now have been used for your
child. You start to find a new comfortable position, but not before you
notice Sarahs hand move to her tummy, rubbing it now in her sleep too.
You end up sleeping on your back, enjoying the weight you feel between
your hips as your belly takes on more of a dome shape against the moon
light. You cup one hand under your enlarged bump, the other on Sarahs
firm and very warm belly.
It’s incredible how we always end up with these two.
Just like Booth and Brennan, they are the center. And they had to hold. For everything to work, they’d have to hold.
And they worked everyday. So hard. To give us the best. To have the best work environment. To have this show.
So different people, these two, with such completely different backgrounds and professional situations when they landed on this little show. Yet. They made it work everyday. Through their inside jokes, through their laughs, through hard times, against everything and everybody that didn’t believe this show actually could. They built this amazing friendship.
And the feeling, this friendship that flourished leaves me? Peace. Happiness. Because it’s so pure in so many ways. It’s David and Emily, those two so different that built their bridges together for Booth and Brennan, for Bones. You see it in every smile and photo and moment. There’s a real, deep connection. I’ll hold them so dear to me in my heart forever. I love them.
Thank you David and Emily, for giving me my life as I know it today.
a/n: another shitty title. But the italics in this are a flashback. Hope you enjoy. feel free to request. they’re always open.
Just another chill day with the guys. That’s how I spent
most of my days, with the squad. We all became friends when I first moved to Omaha,
in my sophomore year.
I had like 4 classes with Johnson and Gilinksy. So we
immediately became friends. And then they introduced me to their friend Sammy
and Nate, who were a year older.
Gilinsky had drug me to one of their games. Nate Sammy and
Johnson starting varsity. It was a lot of fun. Me and G sat there and cheered
for them. I mostly screamed for Johnson, since I didn’t know Nate and Sammy too
well at that point. I had just been in school for like 3 months, and only knew
Nate and Sammy for like a month, so I still felt a bit weird around them.
And then I started varsity for the girls team. Starting
point guard. And you best believe every single game, G and Johnson were sitting
in the front row screaming for me. After like the fourth game, Nate and Sammy
started coming with them, and we had a tradition to go out to eat after the
And I think that’s when I started to talk to Sammy more. It
actually started after a game. We had just lost by 1 point. A buzzer beater in
over time. I was so pissed, and it actually was my worst game I had all that
year. But I was just so bummed about that game.
All dinner I was quiet. But that night, Sammy just happened
to sit next to me in the booth and that’s when I think our friendship started.
“why so quiet?” he
“I’m just annoyed.” I
replied, playing with my straw in my water.
“why?” he asked.
Looking at me, even though I wasn’t looking up.
“the game.” I mumbled.
“you serious?” he
laughed, and that made me look at him.
“yeah I’m serious. I’ve
never played so bad before.”
“you didn’t do that
bad even. It was the rest of your teammates for not helping you out.”
“no, I should have
been able to handle it.”
“(y/n) you didn’t do
“I had at least 14
turnovers.” I huffed, annoyed with how bad I played.
“they triple teamed
“I shouldn’t have had
14 turnovers still. Regardless of the triple team and traps.”
“it was 6.” He said,
no longer looking at me, instead taking a sip from his water and looking straight
“what?” I asked,
looking at him. He turned and looked at me.
“you had 6 turnovers.
15 assists. 8 steals and 26 points.”
And that was the conversation that started me and Sammy’s
friendship. Every game after that, we would sit next to each other at dinner
and talk stats. And then at his games I would keep track of his stats.
Whenever he made a three, he would do the little 3 sign that
looked like an okay symbol by his eye and then point at me. Every time.
It was in the middle of halftime at one of his games that he
took the mic and asked me to prom. With balloons and flowers. I of course said
yes. Why not. He was literally like my best friend by this point.
Now here we are, 3 years later. Out in LA. I lived by
myself, and I did photography for the guys. They all did music and stuff and I
went touring with them and took photos for them. They all did photoshoots for
I lived in a little house like right down the block. I
practically stayed over at the boys place though. Or they stayed over at mine.
We were currently at the boys’ place. They had a bunch of
people over. Like Nash, Hayes, Jake, the usual gang. And then Emily and Madison
were there too. We were all kinda just doing our own thing. I was laying out by
the pool, drinking a beer. Emily and Madison were laying out with me too.
The three of us were all really good friends. I loved those
two like sisters, and Emily practically was. She always hoped that me and Sammy
would get together, but we were just such good friends. Best friends, anything
more than that seemed so weird to even think about.
Yeah we complimented each other all the time and play
flirted, never taking each other serious. Like when I came out in my bikini he
said “mmmm you look good ma, the things I would do to you.” As he licked his
lips and looked me up and down.
Everyone wanted us to get together. Half of them actually
thought we were already hooking up behind their backs. But that’s just how we
were with each other. Touchy, flirty, protective.
Like Sammy brought home this one girl one time and she was
all over him at the club but the second we got home she literally clung onto
Nate like the whole time. Nate didn’t pay much attention to it, to stoned to
care, but I could tell Sammy was bummed, so I called her a hoe and told her to
And then Sammy this one time nearly beat the shit out of
this random guy out on the street. We were all going out to lunch and I was
running late. He tried to get me to come home with him and when I wouldn’t he
called me a bitch, which I didn’t mind, then he called me a hoe and slut once
he saw me sit down with all the guys. Sammy got up and nearly beat the shit out
of him right there and then but G and Nate held him back.
So yeah, everyone thought we were a thing, but the truth is
we are just best friends. I mean, yeah, he’s hot. And sure, I might have a
little bit of feelings for him. It’s hard not to feel something towards him
when I spend so much time with him.
But we had our own hookups. He wasn’t the cuffing type, and
me on the other hand. I normally would talk to a guy for a month or two before calling
quits, simply cause things with him just didn’t seem right.
Like I was talking to this guy Matt. He was super sweet and
hilarious. We’ve went out like 8 times. Dinner. Clubbing. Out to the beach.
Just little things. And yeah, we’ve had sex, it happens.
I was currently texting him, or uh, sexting him I guess. We
always did this shit. It seemed like we were both constantly horny, but we also
always managed to joke around. Sammy’s met Matt once when we all went out, and
he didn’t like him at all. I don’t know why, but idk, things with Matt feel so
different than with all the other guys.
I was in the middle of texting him back, when someone
blocked my sun. I looked up to see Sammy. Quickly sending my message to Matt
and locking my phone I looked up at Sammy, folding my arms over my chest.
“can I help you?” I asked, with a bit of attitude, cause let’s
be honest, I always have one.
“oh yeah, I’ve got a few things you can do for me.” He bites
“seriously Sam, can’t you keep it in your pants in front of
your own sister.” Emily chimes in.
“sorry sis, she just turns me on so much.” He says, sliding
in and sitting next to you, Emily and Madison looking at both of us.
“just admit you two are hooking up, for heavens sake.”
Madison says, throwing up her arms.
“we’re not.” Me and Sammy said in sync.
“yeah, she’s got that one little fuck.” Sammy kept speaking.
“I’m just saying. I don’t like him.” He spoke, us going off
into our own conversation, everyone that was close paying attention.
“I know you don’t. you make it so fucking obvious.”
“well I’m not gonna act like I like him for your sake. He’s
a shit and you know it.”
“he treats me nice, shouldn’t that be the only thing that
matters? Shouldn’t you be happy for me?”
“I would be, if he wasn’t such a fucker.”
“whatever.” I rolled my eyes. He always did this. Every time
I talked to a new guy he had some unknown reason as to why he’s ‘a fucker.’ It
was so annoying.
I went home that night. Matt was out of town, and I was just
really sexually frustrated. Matt had been sending suggestive messages all day,
and it definitely turned me on.
We decided we were gonna send pictures. It’s not like he
hasn’t seen it before. And yeah. I was texting him and Sammy. Sammy texted me
when I got home and apologized for earlier, and then we started talking since
I took the picture and just sent it. And then I went to read
the message Sammy had just sent me, except my only unread message was from
Matt. I clicked on our thread and saw that the last message was his picture,
and then another very very explicit message.
I replied to his message, and then checked Sammy’s thread to
see that he was currently in the middle of typing, according to the little
bubble in the bottom. I looked to see what I said last and my jaw dropped.
There’s no way I just sent my best friend my fucking nudes.
You’ve gotta be kidding me. And the message I sent with it. Oh god. I just sent
my best friend my nudes and then told him I wanted him to bend me over the
couch and pound into me while I call him daddy. Seriously fml.
I sat there, pacing in my kitchen actually, waiting for Sammy
to reply. And a minute later I got a text notification. I sat there and stared
at my phone, nervous to open it. I mean, what’s the worst that could happen? I
mean, I just text him and tell him it was an accident. I was drunk. Something.
But he was my best friend. How awkward would things be now? I mean, he’s seen
me naked, digitally. But it’s still the same.
I decided to just take a bottle of wine and head up to the Jacuzzi
tub for a bubble bath. That should help clear my mind right? Just to relax. I
took my phone and played some music. Avoiding my messages.
I got another text notification, and saw that it was Sammy
again. I ignored it. Still not drunk enough to have the balls to look at the
Then I got a phone call from Emily. I picked it up on the
first ring, needing some sort of advice. And yeah sure it was her little
brother, but she should be able to help. Hell she’s seen me naked before. Like when
she comes over and we get ready and stuff. We just change in front of each
other and shit, so she should be able to help me somehow.
“hey Em, I need help.” I spoke immediately.
“um yeah. What the hell.”
“look it was an accident. I meant to send it to Matt. I don’t
know what the fuck to do.” I sighed.
“well uh, did you read his messages?”
“no, I’m trying to avoid this situation.”
“okay, well uh, I hope you know he’s on his way over.”
“are you seri-“ I started, but was cut off by my doorbell
going off. “Emily, what the hell”
“good luck girl.” She said before hanging up.
The doorbell went off, but I just ignored it, turning my music
up and drinking more out of my wine bottle. About half left.
About 5 minutes later, I thought he had left, but boy was I
wrong. When the bathroom door barged open I almost peed myself. I screamed and
looked at who it was and I just wanted to drown myself there as Sammy stood in
front of me.
“what the fuck (y/n) do you not know how to answer your
phone? Or the fucking door?” he asked, standing in the doorway, obviously
“sorry, if you couldn’t tell I’m a little busy right now.” I
said, motioning to the tub.
“you could still pick up your fucking phone.”
“whatever.” I said, rolling my eyes and leaning my head
“so are you just gonna act like that didn’t happen?” he
“I’m trying to.”
“well I’d like to talk about this actually.”
“why Sammy. What the fuck is there to possibly talk about. I
accidently sent you a nude and some explicit messages.” I rolled my eyes, even
though I have yet to make eye contact with him.
“(y/n) look at me.” He said, and it was the desperation in
his voice that made me look up at him. His eyes were soft as he leaned against
“do you remember when we first met? For the very first time?”
“yeah, when Johnson and G invited you and Nate over one time
when I was there and you guys played fifa for like 3 hours.”
“yeah.” He smiled, moving over and sitting on the toilet
seat, the lid down of course. He looked back up at me and had the same smile he
had when he was high.
“I thought you were the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen.”
He confessed. This was news to me.
“yeah, you weren’t too bad yourself.” I kinda laughed,
taking another sip of wine. He just looked up at me then dropped his head and
“you know, I still think you are.”
“are what? What are we thinking?” I asked.
“the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen, after my momma of
“oh come on, cut the shit. You have girls literally throwing
themselves at you. The girls in your videos are like models. Way more prettier
“no you don’t get it. You’re the most beautiful girl I’ve
ever laid my eyes on. All those other girls don’t even compete to your beauty
“what is all this Sammy?”
“listen. You know we always joked around. That’s how it all
started. Ever since that dinner after the game you sucked ass in.”
“hey you said I didn’t even do that bad.” I defended.
“we weren’t that close then. I couldn’t be a dick to you
then.” He laughed.
“but then, after that dinner, we talked more and then prom.
Prom you literally took my breath away. You looked so stunning. And I was such
a punk back then. I wasn’t gonna come out and tell you all this sappy shit.” He
took a deep breath and looked down at his feet again.
“so Prom, that’s when it all started. We started to joke
around more. Then the accusations of us flirting. I mean, hell yeah, I
definitely would have tapped that.” Both of us laughing now. “but as we got
older, you definitely developed.” He raised his brows at me, knowingly as he
nodded at my chest.
“so what are you even saying sammy?”
“I’m getting there dammit.” He laughed “anyway, I don’t
know, after we all moved out here, I guess I got caught up in it. The money.
Fame. Girls. All of it. But then you started going out. Guys. Clubbing every
weekend, in those outfits that I always wanted to rip right off.” He laughed.
“okay, what’s your point Sammy?” I asked. I was all so
confused by this.
“I’m just saying. I don’t know. I guess, getting those
messages you meant for Matt just really set me off. And I just, couldn’t help but
imagine you and me like that.”
“Sammy.” I gasped.
“come on (y/n) tell me you haven’t thought of it before.”
I stayed quiet. Truth be told I have. I’ve had dreams before
that involved him. Never would I have told him that.
“okay tell me. Tell me you don’t feel anything, and I’ll
leave right now.”
Again I stayed quiet. I looked away from him. I couldn’t
look at him. Of course I felt something for him. I couldn’t tell you what, but
it was a feeling I’ve never had before.
“can we order a pizza and talk about us?” Sammy asked.
“yeah.” I smiled.
“alright, let’s go order the pizza.” He said getting up then
stopping at the doorframe. “you coming?”
“yeah, once you leave. In case you haven’t noticed I’m
“yeah. Your point?”
“I’m just waiting till you leave so I can get out of the tub.”
“why?” he asked, and I just looked at him like ‘duhhhh’
“because I’m naked.”
“it’s not like I haven’t already seen it.” He smirked,
shaking his phone in his hand and leaving me there with my jaw open and eyes
trendhunter: i literally discovered this website about an hour ago. it seems to work really well to find fashion editorials and photoshoots, all you need is to type a theme of what you want and it’ll give you a list of articles. just be aware of the low quality of the pictures, though it does seem to give a link to a better quality along with the source.
fashiongonerogue: a lot of people i know on tumblr use this website and tbh it’s probably because it has a lot of great editorials in it with high quality photos.
doyouspeakfrench (aka fanny latour lambert): i’m always browsing her archives on tumblr for inspiration. probably my favorite photographer ever.
petra collins:the best photographer when it comes to “the boredom of teenage girls” and 80′s-ish stuff.
brian ziff:i’ve always loved his flowerly gothic work and tbh i needed to check his stuff again cause it had been at least a year since i last saw it and god, it’s looking super great.
there’s probably more but that’s all i can remember now. but if you need more especific help don’t be afraid to ask me, i love helping with that kind of stuff since i barely get any help myself lol and well, about stealing someone’s photo: it’s complicated indeed but i think if you just
pay attention to every source and if they mind or not if you use the
pictures (or if the picture has no source it’s most likely it won’t even
be a problem) it’s already a lot easier for you to make your edits
without too much worry. and let’s face it, with the amount of people
that use images without asking the owner for permission, it becomes quite hard for anyone to be sued or even
to keep track of it lmao. but then that’s a bit of my opinion anyway…
Summary: An AU where Overwatch and the omnic crisis never happened, Jack suffers from PTSD after coming home from a different war. Only he is plagued by visions of a war that never happened, and of a different life than his own. Good thing he has a family to pull him back in.
Pairing: Just a dad76 fic (if you squint there’s some mercy76)
Jack awoke with a sudden start, a cold sweat covering his body. His heart hammered in his chest so loudly he could feel it in his head. While his senses were poised for action, the his brain was still trying to process what was around him. The first thing he realized was that he was in:
He was in bed. His head throbbed almost painfully. Dark blue eyes swiveled around the room in search of answers or a hidden foe. Though the room was clear of any apparent threats his heart still hammered in his chest, adrenaline coursing through his body. He was just in a losing battle, a losing war, and now he was in bed? A bed that seemed familiar, in a room that held nostalgia to it. Something was off, something was missing but his mind couldn’t quite place it-
With a creak the door opened startling the already startled soldier further. The once incessant beating of his heart seemed to come to a sudden halt in his chest as that missing piece walked into the room.
“Mercy, no, Angela-” He stammered holding the limp body closer. A shaking hand came up to brush away the bangs from her face, “I told you to get out of here. That it was dangerous.” His voice was cracking, his whole body shaking, his heart feeling as though it had been torn in half because it’s other half lay limp in his arms. There wasn’t a light quite as bright as her, no smile could hope to compare to her smile, there was no one more generous, nor as beautiful. She was an angel who willingly flew into a hell like battlefield. All she wanted was to save lives, to live in peace yet she still fought this war alongside him. Despite being able to resurrect the dead, there was no one to resurrect her-
Yet there she stood before him, looming in the doorway almost as startled as he was. “Jack. Dear, are you okay?” Her voice was so sweet he was certain he was dreaming, “I was just coming to wake you. You slept in awfully late. Breakfast is waiting in the kitchen.” All he could do was swallow thickly and try to decipher what had happened. He was so certain she had been dead, yet she stood before him alive and beautiful. “Jack.” The bed dipped as she sat next to him, eyes narrowing into the cool concerned stare of any practicing doctor. “Did you have another one of those nightmares?” One of her hands came up to touch his cheek before slipping down to rest on top of one of his hands, a glittering gold ring on her delicate finger caught his eye, “You didn’t take your medicine last night did you?” There was more than doctorly concern in her eyes, she gave him a small sigh deciding to drop the subject, “We can talk about this later, breakfast is getting cold-” She stood up and moved towards the doorway, his hand missing the feeling of hers but the matching gold ring adorning his finger somehow made him feel better.
“We’re married.” His mind was in disbelief but his heart didn’t care, he was married to the woman of his dreams. She was alive and well. All she cared about was his well-being yet he was still brooding on what had to have been an awful nightmare. Still, the old soldier within him didn’t want to accept this dream as reality just yet…
“Oh!” Angela turned on her heel, struck by a sudden thought causing Jack to snap out of his own musings. Her lovely pink lips created a near perfect “O”, her countenance painted with such excitement that it had his utmost attention. “Gabriel called. He wanted to know if him and the kids can still come over?”
“Gabriel Reyes? The kids?”
His once most trusted friend, a man that Jack would have died for. Gabriel Reyes had tried to make Jack do just that: Die. All Gabe wanted was to be Commander of Overwatch and when that didn’t happen…. They damn near killed each other. As far as the world was concerned they did. From the ashes and rubble of Overwatch came two monsters that were once heroes together. Yet now they were at each other’s throats. Soldier 76 a lone super soldier, and a monstrosity simply known as Reaper. Neither could die, not without killing the other first-
“Yes. Do you know any other Gabriel’s? You think you would remember the man who saved your life in the war.” That comment alone was enough to have Jack’s jaw drop but the next nearly had him choking, “Gabe was going to come visit with Jesse and Sombra since we haven’t seen their family in a while.” Jesse? Sombra? Jack was trying to wrap his head around that when suddenly Mercy, no Angela, or rather his wife had switched right back into concerned doctor mode.
“Are you feeling okay Jack? You’re a little pale. They don’t have to come over today if you’re feeling unwell.”
“…No, no! It’s fine they can come over.”
“Hmmmm…. If you say so. Go splash some water on your face dear.”
That was a good idea. Maybe a bit of cold water would help him wake from this curiously pleasant dream, or at least help him understand just what reality he had stepped into. Getting out of bed Jack moved toward the bathroom, flipping the light on only to be taken aback a few moments later. Their bathroom was nice, nothing spectacular but like most there was a large mirror adorning the wall. The mirror itself was nothing to be concerned about but the man reflected was. Reflected in the mirror was Jack but also…. Not Jack….At least not the Jack he was used to seeing in the mirror.
He was an old worn down soldier. Most would describe him as grumpy and gruff. His hair had gone white, wrinkles forming on his forehead from years of scowling. Most prominent was the scars that littered his face. Remnants of his battle with Gabriel, the one that had almost killed him, not this strange Gabriel that had apparently saved his life. That was supposed to be what he looked like… But the man reflected in the mirror was not him… Yet it was him?
Reflected in the mirror was Jack Morrison, the golden boy. The strike-commander of Overwatch rather than the worn Soldier 76. His hair was still blonde and had not yet started receding though there were some gray hairs beginning to show. His face had no scars and only the faint beginning of wrinkles. Instinctively he knew he wasn’t quite as young as he was when he took over Overwatch but he wasn’t exactly old either… At least late thirties…? Maybe early forties but that was pushing it… Splashing the cool water on his face did little to help with his muddled head. “Damnit…” He couldn’t wrap his head around the situation at hand, everything was so perfect it had to have been a dream. Deciding that hiding in the bathroom and staring at his reflection wasn’t going to get him answers, nor would it help stop the growling of his stomach Jack had no choice but to leave.
With the scent of breakfast to guide him, Jack left his room and entered the hallway. Pictures adorned the wall. They immediately caught his attention. A wedding photo of him and Angela? A few photos over was them cradling a newborn. Memories captured by camera adorned the walls and they helped piece together a perfect life that he couldn’t quite remember. There were so many of them on the wall he wanted to look at each and every photo and cherish it but he couldn’t. Someone else was demanding his attention:
“Dad!” Came a chipper voice, that immediately had him turning his head. Before he could react arms were thrown about him and he was wrapped in a tight embrace. For a moment all he saw was a head of spiky brown hair but he didn’t have to see her face to know who she was. That still didn’t stop him from being in shock when he saw the face of Tracer… No, Lena staring up at him. “What’s that look for dad? Surprised I’m home so early? I wanted to surprise you and mum after my last track competition.” She laughed releasing him from her embrace, “It was a tough one but I’m sure I’ll qualify for the Olympics this time around.” His mind flickered back to the photos, to a young girl holding up gold medals for track and field competitions… Lena was going to the olympics?
“I’m back… I-I don’t know for how long.” Her voice was panicked, body faint and already slipping to another timeline. She was too young, they never should have sent her in that plane. She was the best pilot they had, she had a bright future ahead of her… Would she be cursed to always slip through time? “C-Commander please tell Emily that I love her… And I’m sorry if I can’t make it back home…” Lena Oxton their chipper pilot, was crying… It broke his heart to see her this way, and their best scientists were trying to fix her problem but what could their solution possibly be?
There was no chronal accelerator visible upon this Lena, she seemed to be healthy, more than just healthy. His mind tried to wrap around how and why but he supposed he didn’t need one. He almost wanted to warn her against being a pilot but at the moment she seemed to have her heart set on the olympics, which she told him chipperly as she lead him to the dining room. “I was thinking about what you were saying dad.” Solider 76 had once yelled at Tracer for jokingly calling him dad, but right now all Jack felt was warmth swell in his chest, “I think that the training with the weights might be to excessive, I don’t want to strain any muscles especially right now before the next big competition.” All Jack could do was nod unsure of what conversation she was referencing but her logic seemed fine, “Thanks Dad! Thanks for always pushing my so hard, I don’t think I would have made it here without you pushing me so much. Although cool it on coming to every meet. It’s embarrassing when you’re cheering the loudest at practice dad!” As they turned to enter the kitchen, the smell of breakfast making him salivate, another familiar voice chimed in.
“Aw C'mon Sonic! Dad just wants to be supportive!” Warm, happy, and charismatic he knew who’s voice that was as well. Sitting in their dining room, one arm curled over his chair and shooting his sister a smile was… Lucio? Headphones were looped around his neck, and he was dressed in soccer gear. He wasn’t wearing his roller blades or any of the stolen gear from Viskhar. Nor did he seem like he was international superstar but judging from the music that pumped through his headphones, Jack would’t doubt it if this Lucio was destined for fame as well.
“Listen! Aw c'mon Soldier!” He laughed holding up his headphones towards the gruff old man, “It is the sound of my country, of my people. Of the struggles and hardships we faced. I want you to hear it.” With a sigh Soldier 76 took the headphones. “You asked me why a popstar would fight?” Lucio began, eyes staring out in the distance, “I don’t want to be just a popstar. I want to make a change. I don’t want others to suffer anymore.” He was hopeful, more of a hero than Soldier 76 ever was. He knew hardships and pushed through them…
Jack watched as Lena and Lucio playfully bickered, taking his seat at the head of the table out of instinct. He heard Angela laugh, finally taking notice of her at the stove, but his attention was once more drawn to the two bickering siblings. Somehow he found himself smiling.
“Don’t be silly Dad comes to all your games and cheers just as loud. You totally get embarrassed.”
“Only when he’s hassling me to be better than Sombra.” Lucio laughed before playfully giving his father a kick under the table, “I mean c'mon dad we’re not even in the same division. She plays women’s soccer. Can’t she be the best at women’s soccer, and I’ll be the best at men’s?”
“Your father just gets to be a little competitive with Uncle Gabe.” Angela chimed in as she neared the table with a hefty plate of scrambled eggs, “But-” She gave him a teasing glare, “Last I checked someone promised me that he’d stop being so competitive with our children…” Jack scratched at the back of his head in response to her words. He didn’t need to have memories to know that he was probably being too competitive with Gabe… The two were always butting heads in Overwatch…"But I’m sure he’ll stop now right?“ Again she gave him a smile that hinted at the world of pain he’d be receiving if he didn't… Her features eventually softened as a sudden thought struck her, "Dear, could you go wake up Hana?”
“She was up late playing games again.” Lucio groaned, “I could hear her from my room.”
“Like you’re one to talk! I could hear your music in my sleep.”
“All I’m hearing is a bunch of children up way past their bedtimes.”
“Sooooorrrry Mum.” Both Lucio and Lena apologized together lest the incur the fabled wrath of their mother. Their dad could be scary when angry, but he was always a little scary anyways. Having their sweet, patient mother get angry? It was like watching an angel turn into a devil. Their mother gave them a smile, and turned that same smile to Jack as if telling him to get on with it.
Slowly he stood up, taking one last look at the trio before him. Half afraid that if he left this room his make-believe dream family would be torn away from him. That he’d be thrown back to the real world where he had lost so many, where they all had suffered more than they deserved. With his last look at them he turned and went back down the hallway. He didn’t truly know where he was going but his body lead him in the right direction. Now that Lena wasn’t there he took his time to look at every picture on the wall. Of the day Lena was born, of her first day of school, her first competition she won, her prom date with Emily, and of her graduation. He looked at the day they brought Lucio home, of his first time rollerblading, of his first goal in soccer, of his face on christmas when they bought him his first pair of headphones. Then there was the pictures of little Hana, of her as a baby, her chasing after young Lucio and Lena, her with her favorite stuffed animal, and of her getting her first video game system. The family pictures of all of them together brought a tear to his eye, even the ones with Gabe, Jesse and Sombra included in the pictures.
Eventually, pictures gave way to bedroom doors that told just as much of a story as the photographs had. The first door had Lena’s name on it and a variety of pictures, and of places she wanted to visit. The next was Lucio’s, band stickers plastered all over the door, cute stickers of frogs, and music could be faintly heard coming from within the room. The last door at the end was Hana’s decorated in pink and purple stickers, cute rabbits adorning the door. Carefully, he entered, the inside of the room dark compared to the rest of the house. Hana liked to keep her room dark because the sun bothered her eyes after a long night of gaming, the Hana in Overwatch was the same way. From his spot in the doorway he could barely make out her sleeping form. As his eyes adjusted to the darkness he could clearly see her features. Slowly so as not to disturb her sleep, he knelt next to the bed to tuck a stray strand of hair behind her ear.
“Are you sure life isn’t a game Soldier 76?” She infuriated him more than any other recruit ever had before. She was cocky and young, just like how he used to be. Barely eighteen she had no business fighting in a war. She should be going to school and making friends, not piloting a mech and getting shot at. It didn’t help that she was reckless… Just like him. Headstrong just like him. He tried to look out for her, to teach her so that she didn’t end up like him. He looked at all of the young heroes as children, wanting to guide them so they didn’t make the same mistakes as him but… Hana was… the daughter he never had or would have. She was like him and not like him. Which made it all the more heart-wrenching to see her get hurt. To hold her hand as she struggled not to cry. To lie to her and tell her that she’d be fine, that they’d get help. In that painful moment he watched his little hero turn back into a little girl that had no business fighting a war, his war, his fault-
“Dad what are you doing?” Her voice was groggy and sleep filled, dark eyes just barely starting to open, “Are you crying?” Sleep gave way to concern as she sat up. When the tears had started falling Jack couldn’t say for sure but it was embarrassing. Furiously he rubbed at his eyes to hide the evidence of his weakness. “Dad did you not take your pills?” Her voice was barely above a whisper, “Geez you should take better care of yourself. You always tell me to stop gaming so much and you can’t even remember to take your medicine!” Before he could stop her she pulled him into a hug, “Don’t worry Dad, the war’s over. You don’t have to fight anymore. No one else wants to say anything Mom, Lena, Luce but… You’re home now Dad. I don’t know what you saw in the war but you’re with us now, you’re home….” She repeated again, and suddenly she was rubbing at her eyes too. Like Father like daughter.
She released him from her embrace rather quickly, before slipping out of bed. “Don’t even dream about telling mom or the others about that. I’ll never hear the end of it.” She huffed, pushing him out of her room, “I’ll come to breakfast in a minute.” She was embarrassed, not usually one to express such emotions. She preferred to tease and joke, and to infuriate others. Consoling, comforting, and crying wasn’t exactly a Hana thing. In that aspect Jack was the same, he wasn’t one for sensitive emotions. Sparing him one last glance, Hana rushed off already yelling at the others to save her some food.
Jack stayed still for a moment contemplating her words. Memories of a war and memories of this perfect life crashed in his head. Which was real? No it wasn’t a matter of which was real. He knew which one to be true. Those other memories, they were stressed induced hallucinations of a war that never happened, his worst fears come to life because he couldn’t handle the actual war he fought in. It was time he come to face reality:
Edited to merge this post with @judymulder and @virgidearie’s.
Belle’s… completely non-faked travelling pics from the finale have certainly caught our attention, haven’t them? So we had ideas for two similar-yet-different events we could do with them.
The First Event, from the minds of @judymulder and @virgidearie, is a homage to Emilie de Ravin and this is how they explain it: We will make a photobook for Em with lots of photos of Belle in different places around the world. The idea is that you get to have Belle in your hometown, or in a place you always wanted for Belle to go. Besides each photo we also want to include a small fic drabble related to that place (no more than half a page) or any personal message you want to write for Em.
We will try our best to give this photobook to Em during the Happy Endings Paris Con (18-19th June). If you want to participate please send me your submission no later than Monday, June 5th to firstname.lastname@example.org General instructions: We are including below some transparents you can use for this (no need to know photoshop!). You basically can use these in PowerPoint adding any background you want. If you are a photoshop savvy you are welcome to use more complex manips like the ones that we already have out there (example1, example 2).
If you are having problems with figuring out how to use the transparents or you can’t come up with something you really like, @virgidearie will take requests from you guys. Just send her the background you want to use. You can put your text inside the pic if it is small (one sentence). If it is larger than that or a drabble, please send that to me as part of your email text. @barpurplewrites is taking prompts for small drabbles. Do not forget to include your twitter and/or tumblr nickname when you send me your work. Of course, we encourage you to post your submissions, so people get an idea of what they can make. To make these posts easier to find we suggest using the tag #Belletravelstheworld Please let me know or @virgidearie if you have any questions or suggestions.
The Second Event, which could happen at the same time as the first, is more humorous and kinda aims more at making fun of the OUAT production team, though I’m sure EDR would also appreciate these pics too and can be included in the photobook if you want!
So, basically, people who want to participate create the most outrageous and obviously fake photoshop pics of Belle in her travels. And in the end we can make a category in next year’s TEAs to pic a best pic to celebrate who was the most creative/funny. This is brilliant because you don’t really need to be talented at photoshop to participate, but rather creative (though I imagine talented photoshop artists will come up with lots of great stuff).
We post them all on twitter with the hashtag “Bellestravels” and tag A&E, ABC and so on in them. For that we’d have to pick a date (or we can make it a week, and add something of the like to the hashtag).
All Rumbellers and Gold Family fans who are going to Paris to see Emilie de Ravin, Robert Carlyle, Michael Raymond James AND Giles Matthey: I HATE YOU ALL. YOU SUCK.
HAVE THE ABSOLUTE BEST TIME. I am praying for your safe travels and your families and for the connections you will be making at the convention. I hope you hug wonderful friends you have only known online, meet your faves, ask the actors questions, and take lots of photos. And I hope you get out and enjoy Paris, too. It’s a magical, breathtaking place.
This is such an incredible once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so savor every moment. Be blessed.
