you have the most handsome boss in all of creation, good luck.
first things first, kim seokjin is heir to one of the great business empires on his side of the planet.
for the moment though he’s just managing a few of the smaller branches as well as all the charities and his passion project, a moderately successful chain of restaurants.
you find work in one of these aforementioned branches, filling in as his secretary when his PA needs time off to care for their sick mother.
and he’s so stressed and busy he doesn’t even notice until around lunchtime when he bursts out of his office in a frenzy.
“assistant choi! you’re not assistant choi. where’s assistant choi?”
you remind him and he’s like “oops, i thought that was next week.”
because he can manage twelve charities and two businesses at once, he can clothe and feed himself because he’s a big boy, but he can’t organise anything. that’s what he needs you for.
also he can’t tie a tie properly.
he probably went to harvard business school, but he can’t tie a tie for shit. it’s always askew or crumpled or something, so you look knots up online because you’re just itching to fix it for him.
but you don’t actually approach him with the offer for a while, that would be inappropriate. instead you wait for him to tie it himself and ultimately fail, before you offer your help.
he accepts gratefully, and watches you concentrate in the agitating piece of cloth as if an angel just descended to save him from drowning.
later he admits that was when he knew he would fall in love with you.
and after that, whenever he has an important meeting to attend, you gotta fix his tie for him. it’s like ur lil ritual, and it helps him calm down and prepare.
sometimes he neglects to eat though.
like when he’s trying to stay on top of events and important paperwork and running back and forth between meetings and you start to wonder if you should be organising meals for him as well.
he works so hard you end up feeling like you can’t just leave him alone in his office even if the work day is technically over, so you sit around answering emails as you wait for him to dismiss you.
eventually you just Go For It and order a bunch of food in, not knowing what he likes, because you’re hungry too dangit.
so at like 7pm you knock softly and ask him is it okay if you bring him something to eat.
kim seokjin could cry at that moment, but also he’s like “wait, you’re still here? why are you still here?”
you recite him his dinner options and by the end he’s almost visibly drooling.
“that sound amazing, do i have to choose?”
“well, one of them was for me.”
“whichever you didn’t want.”
“can’t we just share all of it?”
and so you and your new boss end up sitting across from one another on his plush expensive carpet, and have a virtual take-out feast.
and you’re both exhausted so you know he’s killing it with the dad jokes and his windshield wiping laughter just makes everything ten times funnier. lbr you probably peed yourself a little.
it’s late when you finally leave, so he drives you home.
the drive is nice and quiet and before you know it you’ve fallen asleep.
also you don’t know this but he was parked outside your house for like ten minutes before he mustered up the courage to wake you, like “ok we’re here!!!! hahahaha,,ha,,,ha,,,,, ah”
weeks pass, and jin’s dad is constantly piling more responsibility on him, which means more branches, which means jin has to travel more, and he takes you with him because he’s useless without you.
and you two are just so comfortable around each other from the start ??
but more importantly you really enjoy one another’s company and are constantly drawn together.
so eventually, always eating room service together turns into always spending time in the same room, which turns into eventually only booking one room with separate beds.
because more money saved is more money to charity.
and guess what.
eventually the hotel fucks up, but everything is so hectic you don’t even notice until it’s too late and you come back from a conference at night to find you only have one bed.
honestly though you’re both so exhausted because you flew in early that morning, jin falls asleep with all his clothes on and you don’t even care and pass out beside him like two minutes later.
when you wake however, he has shrugged out of his blazer and you’re snuggled up to him, head tucked beneath his chin, cheek pressed against his chest.
to save you the embarrassment he pretends he’s still asleep while you untangle yourself. but breakfast is still awkward as heck to say the least, and he lowkey won’t stop smiling to himself the entire time.
and every time you attend a charity event with him everyone assumes you’re dating because you’re always laughing together and they’re used to seeing him with assistant choi.
and one time he mishears someone asking if you’re his date and he says yes so you run with it and link your arm through his and call him pet names and he goes sO red and stutters and it’s worth all the death glares he sends you the rest of the night.
after that he’s kinda tense and weird and you end up apologising for your behaviour because that was very unprofessional of you and you crossed a line and you really need this job please don’t fire me.
and as you arrive back at the hotel he’s like “yeah, it’s cool, whatever, i need a drink.”
and you’re like “idk about you but there’s a minibar in my room.”
and he just stares at you until you realise what you’ve said and when you die of embarrassment he’s like “now we’re even. goodnight.”
eventually, one fateful evening back at the office, jin completely buckles under the weight of it all and you find him with his head in his hands, papers all over the floor.
he confesses to you how it’s all too much and he doesn’t know how he’s supposed to keep everything together, especially as his responsibilities keep growing and without assistant choi around to help him out.
you spin his chair around to face you and sink down to his level, take his face in your hands and tell him firmly that he’s got this. it’s okay to doubt yourself and to crack under the pressure, but he’s got you and he’s got this and together you’re gonna kick this thing in the ass.
and he laughs and hold your hand, leans in a fraction but hesitates until you tell him he can also kiss you if he wants.
and he does.
he kisses you over and over and over until you have expensive carpet burns, wink wonk if you know what i mean.
anon do you have any idea what you’ve done. I hope you’re prepared for how many of these there are
he’s left handed
you think he’d Pump The Iron™ to get relieve stress but he actually goes for a long run
he’s always torn between “I consume nothing but protein shakes and chicken salads” and “I just downed a litre of dr pepper and I have a pizza in the oven and I’m going to eat the entire thing myself”
Cole says he can’t sing or dance but no one will ever convince me of that. He wouldn’t have been able to get into the Marty Oppenheimer if he couldn’t, so while he may not enjoy it he’s real frickin super talented at it
he is actually blind without glasses but won’t wear them so he wears contacts instead.
literally he got up to get a snack in the night but in his sleepy haze tripped over a table and almost broke the whole bounty. Lloyd came running through with both katanas and then tripped over the same table. Don’t scare him like that Cole.
he’s one of those guys who will literally always sit on his glasses. He can put them down for 0.56 seconds and still sit on them anyway, honestly it’s a talent how does he do it
“Cole for the love of all that is good in this world will you just wear your glasses” “I just can’t bear to look at you so get a new face and I’ll consider it”
Jay: I can’t believe Cole is dead Cole: I’m not dead!! Lloyd: Hey Cole can you help me with- Cole: I’m sorry Lloyd but unfortunately :// I am dead ://
in all seriousness he still has PTSD from being a ghost, he doesn’t entirely trust that water won’t kill him or at least hurt him, especially cause he still has his green scar, so he tries to avoid it as much as he can. He still flinches when something or someone touches him sometimes because he’s not used to it
when he figured out how to use his ghost body the first thing he did was visit his dad and hugged him for like 3 hours solid
honestly I have so many angsty ghost headcanons but I won’t do that to my boy I love him too much
he is everyone’s vent buddy. People go to Zane if they have a problem they need help with, but Cole is always the one they’ll go to if they have stuff they just wanna get off their chest
you hear it all the time but Jay is his best friend, he would do anything for him even if he calls him a loser or threatens to Spartan kick him over the side of the bounty.
they can communicate using only the word ‘bro’
Jay: hey Cole what do you think of this- Cole: *slaps him across the face* TAG, YOU’RE IT *runs away* Jay: ……….. nO I WAS AT BASE THAT’S NOT FAIR
This video: Jay is the one that walks into the lamppost and Cole is the one that’s like “yo that’s my bRO”
Jay when he can’t wake up Wu: WU’S BEEN FOUND DEAD IN THE BOUNTY Cole: *jumps up* IS HE OK Jay: HE’S ALRIGHT BUT HE’S DEAD
so Cole has really thick hair and one time it’s just so hot and he gets so mad that mid battle he marches into a hairdressers and shaves his head. He accidentally goes too far and regrets it afterwards when Jay keels over on the floor from laughing and all he can make out is the word “SHINY”
“watch me do a backflip” *falls on his face and almost breaks his neck*
one time Kai walks in on Cole laying sprawled out on the floor and he’s just like damn it Cole what is it now, and Cole just whispers “I dropped my steak pie” as a single tear rolls down his face
“do you think pigeons have feelings”
the boyo stress eats:
I know he was a ghost but when they were in Kryptarium but he literally ate an entire cake filled with tools that were supposed to break them out. He’s a stress eater. He has no idea what or how much he’s eating just as long as he eats!!! me too babe
OK so he loves musicals. He loves them. Les Mis is his fave. He made Zane learn all the songs and he’s not sorry
Cole as Zane walks past his room: Valjean, at last, we see each other plain, Monsieur, le mayor, you’ll wear a different chain… Zane: *sighs* bEFORE YOU SAY ANOTHER WORD, JAVERT
no but seriously he loves it, the only thing he was happy to do at school involving arts was the Les Mis musical, he played Gavroche.
on the way to the dark island to face Garmadon, Cole was stood at the front of the bounty singing ‘Stars‘ and everyone was like Cole pls, but by the end they were all stood with him singing it as loud as they could
one time they had a really close call in battle and Cole nearly died, and Zane was holding him so Cole tried to lighten the mood by singing a little fall of rain and Zane was like no stop that stop it right now. When Zane died he couldn’t listen to the song anymore.
“Cole you’re on the rota for cleaning the bounty today” *sigh* “… there is a castle on a cloud… I like to go there in my sleep… aren’t any floors for me to sweep… not in my castle on a cloud”
He gets himself involved in stupid bets with Kai involving fire or hot things that Kai will obviously win but Kai dared him too and he’ll be damned if he lets Kai think he’s gonna back out of a dare
Kai: Cole I dare you to eat that jar of chillies Cole: Kai no I’m not doing this again Kai: I bet you $50 I can eat more than you Cole: …. Goodbye taste buds I’m so sorry
Kai: Cole I dare you to put that flame out with your bare hands Cole: n- Kai: I double triple quadruple dare you nO TAKE BACKSIES Cole: DAMN IT KAI
when they first became a ninja gang Cole seemed quite serious to the rest of them, but he’s basically a walking pun. They way he delivers them make them the best puns ever. Doesn’t matter if Cole and Jay say the exact same thing, Cole’s is funnier. Cole would only make jokes in front of Jay though and it would drive him crazy because no one would believe him.
they suss him out when Kai makes a joke about “you wanna know how I got these scars” and Cole dead face goes “maybe he was born with it. Maybe it’s Maybelline” and Jay shrieks because finally his secret is out
have I ever mentioned that Cole is gay
“Cole I need your help” “I can’t I’m gay” “first you were dead and now you’re gay. The hell Cole, I think I preferred ‘I’m dead’ better” “first of all screw you I was actually dead, and second of all screw you even more I’ve always been gay”
he’s the type of guy to say “no homo but I would literally steal all the stars in the sky for you and I dream about waking up next to you for the rest of my life and you make me so happy I can’t even breathe sometimes and every time I think about you I smile and I’m so lucky to have you in my life. No homo though just bros.”
“sunrise exercise is homophobic.” “???” “I’m gay and it’s offending me”
once he looked his boyfriend in the eyes who he’d been dating for 3 years and went “babe… Uh, I hope this doesn’t change anything but… I’m gay ://” and he’s like “Cole we were literally making out 4 seconds ago why do you do these things”
Kai goes to Cole about fashion advice one time. Never again
“Oh typical, ask the gay guy about fashion. Not all gay guys are good at fashion, Kai.” “Jeez dude you told me you knew what you were talking about-” “Oh no I have a fantastic fashion sense. Those shoes are ugly and if you want the green in your eyes to stand out, wear something red. Like you usually do. Honestly I don’t know what you’re doing trying to change it up.”
Remember in season one when they all used the anchor of the bounty to drop to the ground where Lloyd and Pythor were at Darkley’s school? And it was like the least stealthy thing ever and Cole said “let’s agree to never do that again”? Well they do it again. Like, all the time. It becomes a competition as to who can get flung down faster. Every time Cole does it, he sings “chandelier”.
Jay is trying to teach Zane flirting™ and he’s just like “I don’t see the appeal” so Jay makes Cole come over and use a pick up line on Zane and he short circuits. He swears it was just a coincidence.
honestly I have so many more but this is long enough and I could talk about him for years
Summary: When Lucy agreed to go on a blind date she hadn’t been expecting, well, this. A valentine dedicated to my followers.
wasn’t what I planned on giving you for a valentine but the other one
started to turn a tad angsty and you all deserve some fluff from me
for once. ;D Hope everyone had a wonderful day full of love (whether
it be romantic, platonic, or even self).
evaluated her reflection in the store window thoughtfully. Not a
single blonde hair was out of place, but she found herself lightly
running her hands over the loosely curled strands just in case there
was any frizz she missed. Her make up was impeccable (as it should be
considering she spent over forty–five minutes agonizing over it),
and the little black halter dress she had finally decided on (another
hour long process) clung to her curvy body in all the right places.
looked good. Damn good.
smiled at the thought, but immediately sobered back into a fit of
nerves when she recalled exactly why she was dressed up in the first
place. Down the street, sitting innocently on the corner, was a busy
restaurant with a single man sitting at a table, waiting for her. A
man who she was apparently suppose to find from a white scarf.
had half a mind to just turn around and go back to her apartment.
This whole thing was completely ridiculous and she didn’t know why
she had ever listened to those twins Gem and Mini when it came to her
love life. Blind dates never turned out well for anyone. It was like
the unwritten rule in the dating world. So exactly why
she had spent hours on her appearance for a night that was ultimately
doomed to be a complete disaster was completely beyond her, but she
had a feeling that the twins insistence that the person they were
setting her up with was ‘perfect for her’ probably had something to
do with it.
sigh passed her glossed lips, fogging up the glass of the lovely shoe
display. Maybe she should just go shopping – those pink stilettos
in the corner there were incredibly cute. She could totally rock
course, then Gem and Mini would never let her hear the end of it.
thought of their echoed words of infinite frustration immediately had
her stepping away from the (oh so tempting) display and towards the
restaurant at the corner. One night of disaster would be better than
a lifetime of nagging from those two. Being that they were both
actors, they had the annoying habit of impersonating close friends,
especially when said friend had done something silly or stupid. It
was hilarious most of the time, their impersonations were always spot
on which made it even funnier, but the joke wasn’t quite so amusing
when it was her lack of dating prowess on front and center stage.
her phone before she stepped through the restaurant doors, she reread
the message Gem had sent her. 'He will be at Rainbow Sakura
Restaurant at 6pm wearing a white scarf and sitting at a table for
two. Have fuuuuuun!’ It was five after now (was fashionably late
still fashionable?) so if this mystery man had any kind of manners he
should be in there. Waiting for her.
tonight was going to be awful. She just knew it.
It never fails to
make me happy, that my husband thinks I am funny. Not just “ha ha you’re
adorable”, but in the way where I can render him gasping for breath
with tears streaming down his face Funny. And he tells people
too, at every given opportunity. He’s proud of me, immensely so, and it makes my little heart sing because I was always told this would never happen.
My mother always told me that boys don’t like funny
girls. They especially don’t like girls that are funnier than them.
Boys don’t like a lot of things, according to my mother. They don’t
like sluts but they also don’t like prudes, and they don’t marry bimbos,
but they also don’t want someone too clever either. Because
you’re life is supposed to be a supporting act. You can be funny, but
you are part of a duo. You are the cheap laugh to his comedic genius,
the assistant fluttering the feathers to distract everyone from his
slight of hand.
And it makes me sad because my father—a profoundly funny man—agrees with her. Oh women can be funny of course, but not because they are quick or witty, but because they are laughable. The fact that I work hard at my craft is irrelevant, explained away by an anomaly of chance and luck, and as he so often says with an buff of his nails on his imaginary lapels, genetics—empirical proof that some men will try to take credit for whatever you do, even if their last worthy contribution was sometime post utero, but mostly prior.
A sentiment many men in my life feel the need to reiterate as they comment on my facebook with things like “wow you sure are something” or “where did you get that line from” as though it could never have come from my own pretty little head.
Which is hurtful, to say the least. Insulting as middle ground and at worst a broken record stuck on repeat for the last thirty years of my life.
So the next time you think about sending me a message that says “wow you’re really funny for a woman” I would like you to reconsider your outlook on life, and whether or not it might be better improved by first removing your head from your arse.
The Hurting, The Healing, The Loving: Part I- The Hurting
“Boss or Toss kissing someone
you’re on tour with.”
“So this last beautiful girl that I am going to introduce has the most
beautiful emerald green eyes in all the world, and she has a wonderful mind and
she says smart and intelligent things and she’s my favorite, Lauren Jauregui.”
“Do you guys know who Camren is?”
“They call her Mila, I call her Camz.”
“I love Lern Jergi.”
Bright lights flashed against her
green ones and soon she found herself standing in front of thousands of people.
She blinked once or twice to see if all of this is happening and suddenly it
hit her. She was having of those flashbacks again. Groaning internally and
doing everything to not look like she was pissed at someone- which clearly was
herself to avoid misunderstanding, she just heaves out a breath out and looks
to her right and sees two of her members, Dinah and Normani who were getting
all cuddly cuddly. She takes a glance at Ally who looked like a mother looking
over her daughter who finally got the dream girl and when Normani met her set
of eyes she acted like how people wanted to see, like a proud bestfriend giving
a thumbs up, making sure everyone could see just so they could make about
things and theories about this one later on.
Giving the final bow, All of them
went back to the dressing room, changing into their party clothes and headed
off to the club for an after-party event located at the heart of the city. Even
before arriving they knew there’s going to be a lot of people which represented
mostly by the media hoping to snap something to post it later on their columns.
And although this people piss them off, they had to pose and look good because
that’s what people wanted to see. So like the management taught them to do,
they posed all for the flashing lights before leavinbg them wanting more.
Entering the club they greeted
some familiar faces and they also kissed some on the cheek. Immediately Ally
found her boyfriend and heads to him. Looking at the couple, the three of them
couldn’t help but feel jealous because if Ally had one thing in this world that
they would be jealous of, it was her boyfriend’s consistency to prove to Ally
that he’ll always be her number 1 fan.
Lauren’s heart was still melting
at the sight but a pair of arms wrapped around her waist shifted her attention
and she didn’t even need to turn around to see who this person was. The mixture
of weed and alcohol with a little bit of his favorite perfume and the signature
kiss on the shoulder brought a smile to her face.
“What’s up pretty face?”
She turned to look at her friends who nodded in understanding.
“Hey this is our twerk song
“You know I’m right wherever
you are babe.”
“You sure those two aren’t
lesbians?” He wrapped his arms around her tights and resting his chin on
She simply gave him an eyeroll
which wasn’t obvious in his eyes. “They can be whatever they want them to
be.” He should know by now she hates labels.
“Alright, no need to sweat.
Come and meet the family babe.”
Her co-members had a very neutral
reaction when she started seeing him. It started off as catching up with one
another up until the rapper started showing his intentions and she, the one who
tried to get things off of her mind accepted him and sooner she realized that
he wasn’t much of an ass, well most of the time especially when he’s on his
good side. When the girls heard it from her personally they didn’t acted too
negatively. They just nodded their hands and hoped that she’d be happy and he
would be responsible for it.
And she did in all honesty. It
was so cute to see this adorable sight of him and being so close to family was
one of the things that brought her into agreeing in dating this guy. He made
her happy, he made her feel loved and cared and that she deserves these
treatments. What did the management thought about it though? They thought to
make a big deal out of it spreaidng rumors one after the other and now it
blasted through the entire world and she wanted to say something about it. She
wanted to say that there’s nothing serious between them right now and that
they’re just testing the waters but just like how the management wanted her to
act, she said nothing and kept her mouth quiet. And for this, he took the hint
that they were in fact an item.
With his hands still around her
waist she was introduced to probably half of the people inside the club which
she would only probably memorize only 10 and she kept accepting drink after
drink offered to her by his friends or his co-workers and family. She didn’t
want to embarass him so being the good girlfriend that he wanted all of them to
see, she was approachable and understanding.
Two hours later she finds herself
getting full of the conversation. At first yeah she was liking how the flow of
the conversation went but then onen of his friends made fun of women and it
angered her. It angered her knowing that all of the guys agreed while they look
at women like some piece of meat and how he invited some hookers in their
table. Well, high-class hookers but nevertheless, she saw how much disrespect
his friend showed to them and what angered her the most was he never said
nothing about it. He just kept on flipping his long ass dreadlocks, laughing
and agreeing to everything that comes from these low, imbecile people. She
wanted to rant, but she also didn’t want to cause the scene. So like how her
date wanted her to act, she excused herself politely and made her way towards
Surprisingly, she sees her best
friend there with heels on the other hand nd eyes up above. She normally sees
the latter inside the club twerking her heart out or jamming to every song
played by the DJ or drinking higher than her usual tolerance but she smiled at
at the sight, slowly walked towards her. She just stopped right beside and
neither of them said a thing. It was silent but it was a comfortable one and
she felt thankful for that with their lifestyle, sometimes it’s hard to find
“I like looking up at the
stars sometimes. They’re so still it makes me feel that time stopped and if I
focused enough, I could hear the busy street noises fading out and everything
else. In times like this I feel that I am Normani. No awards under my name, no
bullshit nor I am a member of a worldwide girl band, it’s just Normani…
Normani Kordei Hamilton, the 20 year old girl from Houston.” She smiled
still her eyes were on the sparkling tiny dots in the sky. “It’s worth the
pain in the neck.”
Lauren smiled. “I think I
like that too Mani.”
“But your eyes aren’t on the
stars Laur, you keep looking at the moon.” She says. “It still
reminds you of her isn’t it?”
Instead of giving an honest
answer, Lauren built up her walls and shrugged. “Sometimes I guess.”
She should’ve known better that
her bestfriend could see right through her. Still being the bestfriend that she
is, she just shakes her head. “How do you do it?”
“How do you look at her and
tell the public otherwise?”
“Uh, it’s because the
management told us that I should be the one who should be vocal about it. I had
to maintain my image who didn’t take anybody’s bullshit about me while she had
to remain the sweetheart that everyone wants her to be.”
“Does it hurt? Whenever you
“More of like she’s the one
hurting. She told me that my words were too realistic that it was hard to draw
the line sometimes.” She answered. “She got used to it as the time
passed by, what’s the purpose of indirects anyway.”
Normani nods her head. “I
Lauren furrowed her eyebrows. She
knew about the new set up of the management since they needed to spice things
up, they thought it would be better if it was Normani and Dinah’s turn to be
the one who everyone shipped. She was there when the management proposed the
idea and she saw how comfortable the two were the idea, and they even banter
about who was going to get jealous first and then laugh it off. It was nice to
know that things weren’t awkward between them unlike when the management told
her and the other one act to be an item to boost their popularity up.
But now looking at her
bestfriend, she knew something was up and she was going to find out by the end
“Mani you know-”
“I am just like you Laur.” She was confused by her friend’s statement. “I am a
unicorn who fell in love with a dragon…” She trails off and looked at
her with tears threatening to fall from her eyes. “And mother will never approve.”
Instantly she pushed forward the
dark-skinned beauty inside her arms just how quickly Normani cried her eyes
out. She sobbed and Lauren could feel her top getting wetter every second and
how Normani poured her heart out tonight. She knows how painful it must be for
the other girl to finally recognize her feelings to the person who’s inside
probably dancing until she passes out with some guy she’d forget about the next
day. Funny how Dinah couldn’t notice that she was breaking a heart of someone
without her noticing it.
What she even finds funnier is
that she couldn’t help but imagine that this was her years before when she was
still here with them, and her crying figure wrapped around her bestfriend just
like how she was hugging Normani now. Pathetic, she couldn’t hate Dinah even if
she wanted to, she was Dinah years ago too.
“How can she call me babe
and ask me to be fine with it? I mean did you see her tweet? When she called me
her girl? Fuck, I fucking lost it or how she posted the screenshot and how she
is in her normal way I knew I was a goner. I am a goner for her Laur.” She
continued to cry.
“Shhh just let it all
“I didn’t planned to be like
this, man I never imagined because we always talked about boys and now it’s
just- goddamnit now all I could think about is her, no matter how hard I try to
fall for some guy, she would always creep my thoughts and managed to stir my
feelings up.This was supposed to be just an act and now I find it very hard on
what to believe…” She paused for a moment. “So tell me Laur, how do
you do it? How do you get over these stupid feelings?”
“You never get over them
Mani. You just let time pass you by and hope that tomorrow, it won’t hurt like
today.” She said. “You just continue to hope babe and one day it’s
“Thanks Laur, I really
appreciate you being here and I don’t know if I would’ve bottled this entire
“Is this your first time
coming out because-”
“My family knows and my
mother expected it to happen sometimes soon. She kinda felt it when I brought
Dinah for Christmas and then I went to celebrate New Year with hers.”
“Not even dating yet you
celebrated the holidays together? I am offended!”
“Barbara on the other was a
little in denial at first but she finally got over it. She even told me that if
Dinah and I won’t be together by the end of this year she’ll disown me.”
Lauren chuckled. “Wow, talk
about pressure huh?”
Normani laughed along too.
After the laughter died, Lauren
cleared up her throat. “You know what Mani? I actually regretted something
this entire time.” Her best friend looked at her while waiting for her
answer. “It was when I never told her that I love her, even when I knew I
“What are you talking about
you guys say I love you to each other every time.”
“But she was the one who
always initiated it, it was never me… I always said I love you ‘too’ and it
probably made her feel that I was just agreeing with her, like I was just
saying I love you because she loves me and now thinking about it, I should’ve
said I love you to her more.” She fixes her friend’s hair. “So if she
doesn’t know, then let her.”
Before Normani could answer, the
door opened and it revealed Dinah looking at them with a non-expressive face
and when she spotted the two Lauren could see the Polynesian girl wasn’t even
trying to hide her frown and it was only then she saw their current position
in. Normani probably noticed the position too as the DWTS star immediately
created distance between them.
Lauren immediately chuckles
mentally as she saw who’s the whipped one
before the relationship could even start.
“What’s going on? Am I missing
something?” Lauren wanted to laugh, Dinah was really the worst when it comes to
“Oh nothing, we were just
Dinah raised both of her eyebrows
in amusement. “That’s some way of catching up.”
“You know how close Mani and I
are DJ, it’s not like you’re not used to us being all so cutesy. She’s my Manibear after all. Ain’t that right BABE?” That earned her a playfully shove
“Yeah I can see that now.” The
Latina couldn’t hold it any longer so she lets out a laugh. “What’s so funny
“Nothing, I just remembered I
left him behind his egotistic friends and how he’s probably so pissed at me which
means I should go. Great talk babe, we should do this more often. You guys are
taking the Norminah shit way too real my heart can’t take it anymore.” She
Laurent left the two of them and
she could hear her other member asking her why was she out here and how she
noticed that she was crying and demanded for a reason why. She turned back to take a glimpse of them and
she sees Dinah placing a kiss on Normani’s forehead and hugged her and by that
she knows that it’ll only be a matter of time before they could admit their
feelings for one another.
She really didn’t feel like going
back inside the club as she feels that she was draining from the concert and so
she gives him a quick message and continued walking on the streets just taking
her time as her hotel was a walking distance from the club. She actually felt
happy because people was just passing her by not harassing her or even
demanding something from her and it’s not that she gets to experience this
every single day. Normani was right, it felt nice to sometimes feel normal.
She stops as the pedestrian and
waited for the signal so she could cross and get inside the hotel. While
waiting, she remembered her member saying how she kept her eyes on the moon and
tonight was no difference. Looking up, she saw the moon sharing its light down
on her. She smiles and pulls out her phone tweeting-
Eyes on the moon
And she crosses the street,
enters her hotel room and let the sleep take over her body.
How does Lauren Michelle Jauregui
spend her Saturday Nights?
Well it’s either she’s home with
the family, chilling out on their Miami home with boxes of pizza as their
cheered on their favorite team on various sports or just screaming their hearts
out for a movie marathon. She could also be on a plane towards another state or
another country while trying to catch up with some jet lags or being notified
on their schedule. She could also be at the recording studio messing around
with words or melody or at her room with Leo on her side, a book on her hand and
a cup of her favorite tea on her desk. Depends really…
But tonight she was doing neither
because this Saturday night she’s killing her red dress and heels with his arms
wrapped around her waist as they were bombarded with paparazzi when they were
entering the club for he was invited by Pharell, who was celebrating his
“You alright there?”
She takes a look at him. “Yeah
sorry I dozed off for a minute were you saying something?”
“Is there something wrong? You
know we could leave if you’re really not up for it.”
Now she feels guilty. “It’s not
that, I just zoned out for a minute but I really want to be here with you.
Also, I haven’t been out for a while so it’s nice to have some fun tonight.”
“Okay cool. Now let’s go find him
I mean if we ever do cause this place is huge.”
“Don’t worry, it’s not really
impossible not to find him. I only know a few people that could rock this type
of hat.” She chuckles. “We’ll find him eventually but let’s just enjoy the
He smiled and kissed her
forehead. “I like that.”
Lauren could also feel that
there’s something wrong. You know the feeling that you know there’s something
bound to happen but you just couldn’t describe what time of event would that be
and although it’s at the end of your tongue and you really wanna say it you
just couldn’t and it frustrates the shit out of you? Well that perfect
describes Lauren’s feelings right now.
So when she wants to distract
herself from thinking things she doesn’t even want to, she usually goes to
places like these and enjoy the night out by being high or wasted or neither.
She just wanted to have fun and basically that’s what they did tonight. The
couple danced the night away while meeting with some friends. She even got to
meet Halsey, a good friend of hers and both of them agreed on doing a song very
After all the sweating, Lauren
chilled out at the bar, grabbing a drink first and looking at the people. She
smiled to herself as she was successful blocking certain things off of her
mind. But reality bites like a bitch, especially to someone who has been trying
to run away from it when Lauren felt everything slow down as her eyes landed on
a certain brown-eyed girl who she hasn’t seen in a while.
“What the fuck?”
Lauren couldn’t describe the
situation even better. She just didn’t see Camila Cabello for the first time in
probably a long time but she sees Camila dancing with someone else and distance
between them was hardly seen. The second thing that matched Lauren’s words was
how close those two were and something inside of her stirred when she knew that
the younger latina was dancing with another
“Lauren I don’t understand, I thought we were-“
“We never were! We were just two people forced to act as if we were one
because the fucking management wanted to spice things up!”
“I know you’re scared because there’s Lucy and-“
“Damn right I’m scared! Fuck why do you have to come in and ruined
“It wasn’t my fucking fault when the two of you didn’t grow up some
balls to fix things!”
“No fuck you. We’re done and-“
“You don’t mean that! You always say that but you always end up coming
back to me!”
“No this time I’m done, whatever this is, is done, I am growing up some
balls and fix things with my girlfriend. So fuck off, fuck your feelings and
good bye Camila. It’s better if you would’ve left.”
Lauren tries to shake off the
memory that hit her like a bitch. Her mind was immediately brought back when
the song changed into I Got You and
her eyes immediately landed on those two figures who were dancing intimately.
She hated the fact that this woman sang the lyrics I can see you hurting, I’ve been through the same thing baby don’t you
worry I got you.
Who the fuck she think she is? And why does she smiles at her as she
leans onto her more? This is fucking bullshit! And why the hell am I seeing
this now? There were a lot of questions that were going through her mind
but she never wanted to know the answers. She swallowed her drink in one go
while dialing a number and waiting for the other person to pick up the phone.
“What’s up Lauser?”
“Dinah do you know something that
“Whatchu talkin’ ‘bout girl? Mani
I swear to God give me my fucking pizza back or I’mma poly beat down your ass.”
“Dinah focus! Do you know something
that I don’t?” She said sternly this time.
“How am I suppose to know when you
keep talking to me-“
“Do you know that Camila’s seeing
someone right now?” The person on the other line went silent and she groaned. “Dinah
just answer my fucking question!”
“Yes I know and I don’t know how
the hell did you found out but you weren’t supposed to.”
“I wasn’t supposed to? The fuck
does that mean?” And then she could hear the two conversing on the other phone
and something clicked inside her. “Does Mani know? Does Ally know too?”
“Wow, so much for trying to keep
me up with everything.” She immediately hanged up and ordered another shot
while the bartender looked at her weirdly. “Well? Are you going to grab my
drink or not?”
“Y-y-yeah. I’ll be back.” She
sighed, she didn’t mean to snap at the poor guy.
Pharell immediately got up on the
stage and people cheered for him and they sang the happy birthday song altogether.
He said thanks to all the people who were here tonight and he expressed his
gratitude and said the most cliché lines which was- drinks is on me! As the crowd laughed and Lauren would’ve laughed
too but she was just beyond pissed. From afar she could see Camila picking up
her phone and she saw how the younger one tensed up and began searching
throughout the entire bar.
And after what felt like an
eternity, a pair of chocolate-brown eyes finally looked at the pair of eyes
which had bright emerald in color. It brought back so many memories to both of
them. Back then, they liked talking to one another through their eyes and some
videos have become proof of it and right now, Camila was telling Lauren to
follow her out of the club and being the Lauren who wanted immediate answers,
she gave the other one a small nod before seeing her whispering something at
the person who danced a while ago with her woman before giving Camila a small
nod and turning back her attention towards the music. My woman? Pathetic. Lauren mumbles to herself as she follows the
Cuban out on the club towards the underground exit and there was this big guy
who nodded at Camila and opened the door of an SUV before leaving them there.
This was it-
Tonight will be the night where
all of Lauren’s questions will be answered, by hook, or by crook.
She enters the SUV and then she
was met by silence. It was so silent that you could hear the air condition
making sound and it the physical movements like shifting sitting positions,
licking of the lips, the playing of the nails and two bodies breathing so
cautiously. Lauren felt Camila was looking at her and hearing the latter one
sigh, she knew that the other one would be starting the conversation.
“I’m sorry you had to find it out
Lauren scoffed, “As if I was ever
going to find it out… As if someone will eventually tell me what’s going on
because clearly, you were stopping them.”
“I wasn’t and I just told them
that there’s no need for you to find it because it’s not like you would care
anyways. You have your own life, I’ve got mine.”
“You’ve kept them updated so I
couldn’t see why you couldn’t update me as well.” Lauren defends. “You’re
right, I don’t give a shit so why hide? You think I would be so damn jealous of
your new thing?”
“Why? Aren’t you being jealous
right now? ‘Cause if you really weren’t, you wouldn’t call Dinah and if you don’t
give a shit, then don’t look at me that way.” Camila says sternly.
“How am I looking at you now
then?” She challenges.
“You’re looking at me as if you
give a shit.” That caught Lauren off guard. “You’re looking at me as if it
hurts you to see me be with someone else. You’re looking at me as if I am still
yours when clearly you told me months ago I was never yours and you were never
mine, that we were just used by the management to spice things up and that I
was the one to blame because I stepped in your life and things got fucking
“Stop going back to the past, it
all means nothing to me now.”
“Well then you can get the hell
out of my car, we’re done here. I’ve done my part explaining.”
Camila couldn’t take it anymore
so she just made her way outside the car and back at the club when she hear
Lauren say- “What does she have anyway? Who the fuck she think she is to dance
so intimately with you? Fuck her! She shouldn’t be-“
“No fuck you! She can dance with
me whatever way she wants because someone I really care about and I want to
actually be happy this time!”
“What the hell are you talking about!? Weren’t you happy!?”
“NO!” She bursts out. “I wasn’t
happy because you took it from me!” She walks back to the older Latina. “I used
to be so happy in your arms, made me feel like everything is real, that we were
real, that what you’re feeling for me was real until you fucking destroyed it
all for me when you chose her over me. When you chose HIM over ME.”
“So this is what it’s all about
huh?” Lauren paused. “You want revenge on me on what I’ve done to you years
Camila stared at her with great
disbelief. “Are you even for real now? I just told you, I want to be happy this
time around and that’s me putting my happiness in my own hands because when I
placed my heart in yours you fucking squeezed the life out of it. Not
everything about my life is about you Lauren, not anymore because I actually
realize that I need to put myself first.”
“You put yourself first way too
much because you fucking left the group who was with you through thick and thin
for 5 years.”
“You’re impossible to talk.” She
shakes her head. “I am not doing this with you and your mindset right now.” She
started walking away again.
“Yeah go ahead Camila, fucking
run. That’s you alright, you fucking run away when you know you’re about to
lose and when you’re too afraid to admit something!” She chases Camila and
grabs her by her arm. “You’re running away from me because you know deep down,
it’s still me you’re in love with.”
She removes herself from Lauren’s
grasp. “Yes, I am running away from you. I am running away from you because I
know if I stayed I would let your words get to me and if I stayed I would be
the same 15-year old Camila Cabello who, no matter how hard she fucking tries,
she always find herself loving the 21-year old Lauren Jauregui just like how
she loved her when she was 20, 19, 18 and even for the very first time we met.
I am running away because I cam choosing myself, because I am so done to be
continuously be broken by you.” She already has tears in her eyes but still she
continued with her talk. “I am running away from you because I am done staying
in your life like I was okay with everything. You know how I felt for you then,
EVERYONE knew how much I love you and yet you kept coming back to her and when
she breaks you, I let myself break for you just to see you smile again. I let
you be in my arms tonight only to find you back in hers the next morning and I
have to act like everything’s okay. Well a little heads up, it’s not and I am
never going to be okay with the fact that we didn’t even got the chance to be
together because you were too scared to realize the fact that everyday you’re
with me, you find yourself falling out of love for her.”
“That is non-sense!” Lauren
defends. “I love Lucy, you and I both know that, which is why I chose her over
“Oh yeah? So why did you guys
decided to stay friends then? If you were so sure about her, then why would you
always push me away every time we would talk about what we are?! You keep running back to her because she was
safe. You chose her over me because you know for a fact that she won’t hurt you
like I will and you keep on choosing her over because you’re a fucking coward
and this is the same reason why you chose him over me because up until now
Lauren, you’re the only one running away from the truth that no matter what you
do, no matter how hard you try, and whoever you’re with now, it’s still me-
Camilla Cabello that you’re still in love with.”
Lauren can’t even formulate a
proper sentence nor a word for the speech that came out from Camila’s mouth.
For sure she already knew that this conversation was going to get heated but
she never expected for Camila to not hold back anymore and lay all her feelings
there out on the field. She looked over her and she saw how she was panting,
tears flowing in her eyes and all she could see in those brown orbs were pain
and sadness. Lauren backed away her stare and looked on the ground and remained
Camila sniffed and wiped her
tears before composing herself. She started walking towards back to the club
when she stopped and Lauren waited for her to say something.
“I have a song about us and I
hope you can listen to it one day.” She says. “And when you do, I hope it hits
you like a fucking train just so you can understand the half of the pain that I
was going through.”
So this is the first one or the other half of the chapter. I’ll release the other half tomorrow. Let me know on how you think about this one! This is my first time writing about Camren so please be gentle lol, bye see u tomorrow :)
Tony’s parties were always extravagant and seemingly wild. But a secret that you, and most of the other staff working tonight knew, was how meticulously organised the affair was.
7:00 - General party guests arrive. 7:30 - Avengers (assemble) arrive. -keep track of how many drinks each partygoer consumes. -any partygoer over 10 drinks is discreetly tested and, if over a predetermined limit, set by Mr Stark, are to be sent home. 11:30 - general party guests transport arrives. -Avengers relax -All bartenders leave except finishing bartender (Robert).
I hadn’t been the finishing bartender before and after Robert quit because of his panic attacks (wonder what caused those), I was next in the firing line.
Request: I have a request for Jin!!
May I request a scenario where it’s the first time he’s meeting the readers
family but instead of the family meeting him at like a dinner it ends up being
a day trip to a park with the readers family? I hope that made sense omg. Thank
you so much if you write this scenario ❤️❤️❤️❤️
The sun was
shining bright and proud on the pitch blue sky, the air was warm, the day
couldn’t be better, yet, with each passing second Jin’s hands were growing
increasingly cold. He held Jjanggu’s leash a little tighter for dear life and
tried to swallow down his nerves.
–At least I
got you for moral support – he said, looking down at his dog perfectly groomed
for the occasion, with his navy blue collar on and sitting serenely by Jin’s
side, looking impassive and composed and every single thing that Jin was not.
Jjanggu observed him silently with his head tilted to the side and Seokjin felt
as if he was somehow reproaching him.
–What? – He
asked, even if he knew Jjanggu wasn’t answering. His little dog did a little
jump and barked a couple times startling him and Jin sighed.
alright, I’m going… – Jin straightened his shoulders and took a deep breath. If
anything, this day hadn’t started the way he had hoped. –You’re supposed to be
on my side… – Jin murmured with a strained voice, feeling a drop of sweat going
down his right temple.
supposed to meet your family for the first time and that thought alone made his
nerves way too noticeable for his liking. He still remembered agreeing with you
on this, saying that yes, he was absolutely and one hundred percent sure it was
about time to meet your parents, and he also remembered the way you’d kissed
him after that. He smiled lightly with that thought, he was doing this for the
both of you and he only had to man up. The thing was that he wasn’t meeting
only your parents, but also half of your family and he was already late, only
because he was too nervous the night before and didn’t sleep well, which resulted
in him sleeping through his alarm and not being able to go with you and your
parents in the same car. He could only hope his first impression wasn’t
affected by that, but he knew it most probably would.
to the park on his own with only Jjanggu to accompany him, Jin tried to
remember all the little warnings you’d given him, just advice before hand, as
you defined it, while Jjanggu led the way inside the park. You’d talked about
your father believing he was funnier than he truly was, about your mom’s never
ending curiosity, and alright, he could have expected that. There was also the
crazy aunt that invited herself to the trip and well, didn’t every family have
one? You spoke about some of your cousins, mostly to say they were a little nosy
and hyperactive. Jin was half confident with that part, life had given him some
friends like that and maybe he could manage to not turn this meeting in a total
suddenly tugged at the leash and ran forward, dragging Jin along with him, he
recognized your voice sounding at the distance and then you weren’t so distant
anymore because Jin was bumping against you and Jjanggu’s leash got entangled around
–Jin! – you giggled and held onto his arms,
doing your best to get away from the knot of limbs and kissing his cheek before
crouching to caress Jjanggu behind his ears.
–Hi babe – he
smiled, but that smile lasted about a second because then he noticed all the
eyes fixed on him, your entire family scanning him from head to toe like the outsider
he was and then your father spoke, spiky fork in hand with which he was tending
the grill, cheshire cat like smile spreading across his lips.
sleeping boy has arrived – he said and Jin laughed breathlessly.
choked a little and tried not to look like he wanted to run the other way
robert sugden arrives home to emmerdale in a whirlwind of magic and arrogance, determined to become head of the sugden family. aaron doesn’t exactly expect robert to make him feel the way he does from the moment he arrives, curious, and excited - and magicial
after years of letting his magic go dormant and unused, aaron is swept up in the wonderful world of robert the great and powerful.
otherwise known as the magic au i won’t stop talking about.
“What’s everyone so fussed about today?” Aaron asked as he strolled into the pub. The atmosphere in the village had been odd all day long, the air practically crackling with anticipation.
Anticipation for what, he didn’t know. It had felt like just another day in Emmerdale when he’d woken up, but judging by the look on his mother’s face, that was clearly wrong assumption to have made.
“It’s that Sugden lot.” Chas slammed a pint down in front of him, looking flustered. “Diane and Victoria have taken off, leaving me completely in the lurch. I’ve been rushed off my feet all afternoon!”
“Why?” Aaron settled himself at the bar, curious. The Sugden’s were the most powerful magical family in the village, and when something was up with them, they’d definitely cause havoc.
He still laughed about the time Victoria had found out Adam had slept with Vanessa, and she’d turned every single piece of clothing Adam owned into dust. It was funnier for him, he supposed - but it only went to prove how mad things could get around these parts when a Sugden started to hold a grudge.
“Robert’s back, apparently.” Chas sighed, leaning over so she could speak quietly, clearly not wanting to be hear. “You know how Andy’s been acting as head of the family, since their father died? Well, it should have been Robert, but he left, and now he’s back and determined to ruin everyone’s life.”
Aaron raised an eyebrow, his pint halfway to his mouth. “Bit dramatic, mum.”
He didn’t know much about the mysterious Sugden brother. He’d left the village long before Aaron had arrived, and Victoria didn’t talk about him much, only mentioning him and the apparently exciting life he led every now and then.
“He’s dangerous, Aaron.” Chas warned. “Stay away from him.”
“I’ve not met him yet, calm down!”
Before their conversation could continue, Aaron felt something in the air change, as though the atmosphere had just been charged with electricity. Looking up, he noticed an unfamiliar blonde man walk through from the back room, closely followed by Victoria and Andy.
Robert, he assumed.
He couldn’t help but notice how stupidly gorgeous Robert was, all blonde hair and freckles, wearing a tight fitting suit that only served to accentuate every good looking thing about his body.
It was more than that, though.
Robert carried himself in a way that made you think he was powerful. Andy didn’t exactly give off the impression of being the head of a magical family, but Robert, standing in the middle of a country pub, looked completely powerful, and in control, like he was the one in charge.
A/N: high school au, first mysme imagine lmao sorry if it’s really bad it probably is
Your eyes followed your teacher as she paced herself table to table, sliding a piece of paper to each student. The clicks of her thick-heeled, black pumps got louder and louder as she made her way closer to you. You absent-mindedly clicked your pen as you waited.
Today marked the new unit in AP Chemistry, a unit entirely weighted on a three-week project. The small slip of paper, which would inform you of your partner, could possibly determine whether you would ace it or fail it. You weren’t too picky with who you would be paired up with, as long as it wasn’t some slacker. Considering this was an AP course, there weren’t very many.
There were several small celebrations or annoyed groans as your classmates peered at their paper. Some simply didn’t react. You were one of them as you opened the folded sheet carefully handed to you by your teacher.
A/N : Hey guys hope you enjoy it, let me know if I should do a part two or sequel ? Be sure to follow and like for more. Also feel free to request one for yourself. Much love .xx
You and Justin have been fake dating for 4 months. It’s still something you can’t take in and well we can say neither can he. You’re probably questioning as to why is it something he can’t take in ? Well, Justin was expecting a model or famous type of girlfriend in which that definitely wasn’t you. You both had met by Hailey, after seeing years later since highschool and you moving. Who would have thought you would meet up again on a plane. Everyone loved you, as in Scooter, Za, Ryan and the rest of Justin’s friends along with his family. I guess your bubbly personality worked the charm on everyone except for Justin.
It was a hot sunny day out in LA. It was the perfect day for non other than a swim had I thought as I was interrupted from my daydreaming by my phone ringing. Surprisingly it was Ryan. He only calls me unless it’s something serious because other than that matter we speak everyday so this must be important. “Hey Ryan” I said happily. “Hey Y/N, I have something important to tell you so listen up” he said. “Thought as much. Go ahead” I said getting curious by the minute.
“Okay since I’m your best friend and I thought I should tell you this because it would be even funnier. Justin is on his way and he intends to prank you” He said excitedly. “Go on..” i said wanting to hear more. “So play it cool when he comes and backfire his prank” he said. “Consider it game on. I’m so going to post this on my channel. I have to go set up. Thanks for telling me Ryan aha you’re the best” I said as I quickly hung up.
I went to my room to grab 2 cameras in which I setted up in the house in order to catch footage of our prank. I didn’t forget the thought of wanting to swim. I grabbed my neon pink triangl bikini, threw on my floral kimono and headed to the pool with my phone to keep me occupied along with my sunglasses.
I layed down on the sunbed in the partial shade area and checked my instagram. 10 minutes later, guess who drops by…?
I didn’t dare turn my gaze towards him and instead pretended his presence wasn’t here. “Hey Y/N” I turned around to see that Ryan had tagged along with Justin. I guess he’s going to witness this go down. Justin rarely spoke to me because well I’m his fake girlfriend and the only time we talk is when were forced to. In which does hurt me because even though I may be acting for him, deep down I’m actually in love with him though I doubt he’d feel the same.
“Oh hey Ryan. It’s so good to see you” i said as I stood up to hug him. I swear I could see a sting of jealousy in Justin, probably because I’m just in this bikini or maybe… Nah I don’t think so. “Same here” he said. He then winked at me as I sat down and he sat next to me on my left. My gaze had then met Justin’s presence and in which shall I say I was thankful that I was wearing sunglasses so he could barely see me look at him because he was shirtless in just joggers and nike high tops. That was enough to kill me.
“Uhh hey Y/N can we talk” he asked as he rubbed the back of his neck. Game on. “Yeah sure” I said as I locked my phone and sat upwards to face him sitting on the sunbed on my right. “Okay so I have no idea how to say this but..” he trailed. “But what Justin ?” I asked curiously as to what was his idea of pranking me. “Okay just here me out alright? ” he said playing it as if he did something wrong. Ain’t working babe thanks to Ryan. “Okay so 2 weeks ago remember when we went out for my birthday to that new club ?” he said. “Yeah…What about it ?” I trailed. “Well, uhh I got drunk and I guess so was Hailey.. We ended up doing it and now she think she’s pregnant” he said trying to sound serious. Really ? Of all people he uses Hailey ? That too of all things saying she’s pregnant ?
“Are you fricking serious ?” I questioned. Time for my backfire. He nodded his head as he looked down. “OMG. Okay good than I don’t have to feel bad. We’re even now” I said smiling at my remark as i let out a sigh of relief as I stood up to head to the kitchen. Footsteps were following me and so the fun begins.
“Wait. What do you mean even ? What did you do ?” He asked getting pissed and curious at the same time. I opened the fridge to get myself a bottle of water as I turned to him. “Well my stories a bit similar. Anyways remember like last week or so I told you I went to Cameron and Nash’s apartment to film a video for my channel ?” I asked. “Yeah…” he trailed. “Well while Cameron and I started making the video like towards the end or so we didn’t actually complete the video though uhh instead we may have had a makeout session and uhh we also did it” I said plainly trying not to laugh.
“And ?” He questioned. “Justin. I think I may be pregnant” I said serious. “Are you being serious right now ?” He questioned tensed. “Yeah Justin. I’m so sorry. I know we’re dating and everything, we both screwed up but I’m sure we can work this out” I said trying to convince him into the prank. “No we can’t Y/N. What the fuck man ? This was all supposed to be a prank and you’re telling me you’re fucking pregnant with some shitty Youtubers kid ?” He said with jealousy clear in his voice. Ryan must so be enjoying the front row watch. Justin then walked off running his fingers through his hair roughly. Oh my gosh even when he’s mad he looks hot.
“Oh come on Justy. We can work this out” I said as I wrapped my arms around him which was a first of me in which he was probably shocked of my actions. “No we can’t Y/N. You have no idea how fucked this is right now. This was all supposed to be a prank” he said as he left my embrace and walked back to the pool area where he last sat.
“Okay Justin” I said as I sat in front of him trying to gain his attention. I then did my next unexpected move and sat on his lap which was also another first for me. “Justin. Listen to me. I have something else important to tell you ?” I said as I lifted his chin. “Can this get any worse ?” He asked as he made eye contact with me. “I think it may..” i said as I lowered my head. “Okay just tell me what is it ?” He said sadly. “Justin..You’ve just been pranked by your own girlfriend” I shouted in his face as I got up to high five Ryan. “Thanks Ry” I said as we both turned to Justin to see his reaction. “Remind me again as to what made me all of a sudden fall for you ?” He murmured to himself.
“ Hi little sis” Lyssander cheerfully greets me when I step into the ship.
“I’m only three minutes younger, and get a shirt for god’s sake.” I tell him throwing him the first thing I see that looks like clothing.
“It’s early, thought you would be with Harry downstairs. Hey what’s wrong?” He asks me worried.
“ Do you ever dreamt of what life would be if we were in Wonderland? If father was here? If we weren't…. Us?” I ask looking at Auradon, my elbows on the wet wood of the ship.
“Yeah sometimes. More of what could have happened. How would we be? But it’s stupid to wonder about things that won’t happen, so I forget about it. Why has the king told you anything?”
“No, just… well he did mention a chance to get out here but… you know I want more than this. More than this ship, more than Uma’s crew, more than the Isle!”
“ I know you do, we all want something more than this. But we can’t. We are here because we don’t fit into this society they all created. Different is bad I guess.” He says looking at the peaceful sea.
“ They treated us like garbage, that’s all we are for them right? Sometimes it’s hard to not feel like it being here. I’ll talk to you later, I’m off to Harry’s.” I kiss his cheek and make my way down the chambers, only Una and Harry have private rooms and we share them with them.
“Hello love. Had fun last night with the king?” The blue eyed boy ask sitting on the bed.
“Would have been funnier with you, but he was nice. We talked, it wasn’t too boring. How was your night?” I ask sitting on his lap.
“Bored, cold. Didn’t have you near. I missed ya.” He grins on my neck starting to leave kisses up and down. “What did he tell you?”
“Talked about Mal, about his relationship, how the king life was. He talked about bringing more villain kids to Auradon, to let us free.” Harry stops kissing my neck to stare at me with a serious look.
“Auradon is not freedom. It’s control over us. They don’t want us, and neither do we.” He says going back to his business.
“I know, but he wasn’t talking about Auradon, he was talking about Wonderland.”
“You know I’ve always wondered how it is there. We’re native from Wonderland yet we can’t remember anything. Lyssander and I… we like it here, it’s our home but…”
“But you prefer there.” He finishes pushing back. He always gets moody when I talk about Wonderland, he doesn’t understand why I miss it if I’ve never been actually there.
“Wouldn’t you want to go to Neverland of you had the chance? Your family is from there, you must be a little curious.”
“ You want to prove something to your father, I don’t need to prove him shit. Why can’t you just be happy with us and stay here?!”
“Oh please, you’re the one telling me that I want to prove shit? You live your life to honour him either you like it or no!” I tell him getting up, his head snaps at me. “ I want more Harry, I know you do too. Everyone wants to get our of here, even Uma! This is a prison, not our home, not where we’re supposed to be. Can’t you see it?”
“First of, don’t talk to me like that, love. What do you think it’s going to happen then? We kidnapped the king, Kat, you really think he’s going to let us free for the grace of his heart?” He says mocking me.
“He already offered me a free pass.”
“What did you say?”
“He offered me to finish my education in Auradon. And then let me go to Wonderland.”
“No. You’re not going. Forget it.” He says shaking his head.
“You don’t decide for me Hook.” I tell him. I knew I wasn’t going to, I know better than trust poeole but my head was too invested in the argument, as always.
“So what? You suddenly wanna go? Wanna be a princess, have a prince and live happily ever after? Yeah well I bloody wonder how long will take for them to reject you, after all you’re from Wonderland right? Only mad people. Wouldn’t be the first or second time, would it love?”
Silence falls between us, only our heavy breathing can be heard. I feel tears start to form on my eyes but I refuse to let him see that he hurt me. He said that. He fucking said that. His eyes widen as he realises what he said, the weight of his words, the pain.
“Katerina wait…” I shake my head cutting him, his icy blue eyed connecting with mine.
“Fuck you Hook.” I say before disappearing.
Only seconds after I’m in the roof of the old orphanage. I used to come here all the time when I was a kid. You have a perfect view of the Isle and it’s always deadly silent. Not being able to repress it anymore I let a scream as my knees give up starting to let the tears fall down.
I decided to do a different take on this one. I got this idea, and I thought it would be super fun to write. Don’t worry- Hunk and Pidge are still the primary focus.
“Hey! Can I get everyone’s attention?”
No one seemed to notice as
Matthew Holt looked over the crowd from the head table. Of course, he could
almost hear his little sister groan despite the chatter as everyone ate.
Frankly, he never pictured this day would come. Not that he ever had any faith
in Pidge or believed she was undeserving of love, but she had the knack of
rubbing people the wrong way at times.
But everyone else stayed,
refused to leave.
He would have to admit that
it was beautiful, though. Among the sea of white, pops of sunshine yellow and
lilac could be seen throughout the vicinity of the outdoor reception to add to
the otherwise light and airy feel- the bright green of the late April flora
only helped tie everything together. It wasn’t just to tie the green in some way
but having it outdoors if at all possible was a tribute to them being the Green
and Yellow Paladins: Forest and Earth. They had gotten creative as far as
assigning colors, not just wanting to stick to one side or the other or even
single anyone out. Pidge, her family, and all the groomsmen had lilac while
Hunk, his family, and the bridesmaids were all assigned yellow. It was
undoubtedly a good mix. Totally unexpected since Pidge wasn’t exactly that kind
of person, but she always had the habit of surprising others, for better or
Speaking of which-
God, this was going
dreadfully according to plan. These stupid speeches were supposed to be
memorable and embarrassing, particularly to the bride and/or groom… depending
on the relation to them. Yet, the elder Holt sibling was practically
embarrassing himself up here.
Definitely not according to plan.
A strange sound caught Matt’s
attention, and the young man whirled around to find Shiro giving Lance a
reprimanding glare, hand clamped over the Cuban’s mouth. It was either some
smart remark or some obnoxious noise, but he didn’t want to find out what. But
all the Paladins were sniggering in response, each earning an offended glare
from Lance himself.
Deep breath, Holt. This is
fine. You’ve practiced this. You could recite it in your sleep like the
So… Maybe not the best
“Okay, so if I could have your
“HEY EVERYONE! MY BIG BRO
OBVIOUSLY WANTS TO SAY SOMETHING, SO I WOULD LISTEN IF I WERE YOU!”
Matt nearly tripped over the
chair legs in surprise, straightening out the lilac bow tie as he looked back
over at the head table for what must have been the thousandth time in the span
of a 90 minutes. Though his mother wasn’t entirely pleased with Pidge’s
outburst, she couldn’t help but smile as everyone else erupted into laughter.
Leave it to the bride to get
everyone’s attention for the best man’s speech. Everyone who knew Pidge and
knew her well knew she didn’t take shit from anyone.
Looks like he was the
“Ah! Er- thanks, Katie…” he
mumbled, crossing to take the nearby microphone. “Well, looks like the tables
have turned on the embarrassment, huh?”
Laughter continued through
the crowd, allowing Matt to loosen up and relax a bit more.
“I mean I was totally planning
on embarrassing our lovely bride here, but it looks like she already beat me
More laughter. The family and
friends that knew them well found it funnier than the rest, but it was a good
laugh all the same.
“But seriously, though. I
could go on for days about how awesome my little sister is. I mean, not only is
she a tech genius, but also one of the best pilots the universe has ever
known.” Matt beamed. “Advanced Alien tech? No problem! It’s all the same to
Pidge. I mean, rewiring some drone on the spot with technology she’s unfamiliar
with? Sounds like a genius to me.”
He looked over, watching as
Pidge and Hunk smiled fondly over the little drone in question. Rover had
followed Pidge everywhere before his sacrifice and had even taken a liking to
Hunk as well. Though Matt had never met him, the two of them would talk for
hours about the repurposed Galra drone with his own spunky personality.
“So, story time. Ever since
Pidge was little, she had always wanted to fly up into space and explore. Even
as a teenager she wanted nothing more than to go out on missions like Dad and I
did. Of course, Dad reassured her, having the hunch she would someday and be a
part of something greater than just collecting ice samples. Well, guess who
became one of the defenders of the universe not even a year and a half later?!”
Laughter sprinkled through
the crowd. Most were just laughing at the irony of it all, but the group of
Paladins couldn’t help but grin, exchanging glances as they recalled being blasted off into space with Lance at the helm of the Blue Lion.
“Yeah, that was a thing we
did once.” Shiro piped up, causing the Paladins to erupt into laughter. Because
face it- ‘once’ was about 10,000 times.
Matt couldn’t help but grin.
“Pidge had literally scoured the universe to find me, and that was no
exaggeration. She went through every file she could get her little gremlin
hands on with a fine-tooth comb to pinpoint my location. And when I met up with
her again, I couldn’t believe how much she had grown. Okay, so maybe I’M the
one who had gotten a little taller-”
“Okay, a lot taller.
But I could tell Pidge had changed so much, and it wasn’t just the haircut.” He
corrected. “Granted, my little sister had always been a tech genius. Runs in
the family as many of you know. She’s loud, eager, and ready to dive into
things head first. And it wasn’t until she brought me back that I figured out
why… even if Pidge hadn’t figured it out herself. It wasn’t until I had met
everyone that I discovered that Pidge had real friends, and maybe something
more than that. Of course, SOMEONE had to point it out later, resulting in
Pidge, Hunk, and Matt
immediately turned to give Sam Holt a pointed look. However, the commander was
completely unphased by it all. “What? That was how your mother and I met.” He
laughed. “You really think I don’t know? I call it as I see it.”
“He called it.” Pidge
mumbled, glancing over to her father. “He literally called it back when we
were arguing about modulations and how to re-configure a gendocam.” She would
never forget that day. The disbelief, the embarrassment of her dad calling them out in
front of each other. But, just like everything else- especially about her
having her own crew and doing something special- Samuel Holt was always
Hunk couldn’t help but smile,
wrapping a strong arm around the shorter. “And look where we are now.” He murmured.
The Yellow Paladin leaned in, lightly pecking his new bride on the cheek. Even
though it caused her to blush, even now, Pidge could only return the smile-
moving in to counter her husband as their lips met.
Matt grinned, turning to look over at the couple as they gazed at each other in soft adoration. However, the definition of perfect bliss had quickly ended when Hunk decided to throw in the kicker.
“Even though it’s a waste of a button press.”
Pidge looked up at him in a mix of shock, horror, and pure offense before the engineer quickly pecked her on the cheek once more- leaving the techie utterly speechless. “Love you.”
Very few would understand the difference between single and double modulation, but it was apparently a part of their story as well as some petty spat that often resulted in some friendly gloating.
little sister has always wanted to explore space, but she had found so much
more. Since meeting you, she has become surer of herself and adapted a sense of
humility. You have instilled a new sense of confidence in her as well as fueled
her undying love for science and technology. You have given her someone she can
trust without hesitation and someone to keep an eye on things when her projects
tend to take over her schedule. And never have I seen Pidge smile so much than
when she’s with you. I cannot think of anyone more perfect to not only call a
friend who fits in perfectly with this sappy, nerdy family, but someone who is
now my brother- and most importantly, Katie’s partner for life. Welcome to the
There was a thunderous round
of applause from everyone in the room as Matt put the microphone back on the
stand, turning to cross over to the pair. However, Pidge had already beaten him
to it- having gotten out of her seat to hug her big brother. The techie was
never a typical girl, but Matt just couldn’t believe how stunning his baby
sister looked in her wedding dress- satin lilac sash around her waist and her
hair pulled back with soft curls framing her face in all the right places. He wrapped
his arms around her, keeping her close like he did when she was little. Except
she wasn’t any more. Pidge was a stunning young woman with so many
accomplishments- her greatest now being married to the love of her life.
“Pidge, I love you. But I swear
I will disown you if you do anything to hurt this precious ray of sunlight that
happens to be your husband.” He threatened, keeping his voice low for only his
sister to hear.
Pidge grinned, pulling back
just enough to look up at her brother with a laugh. “I wouldn’t put it past
you.” She mused.
They had both turned to look
over at Hunk, who had only moved in to give the elder Holt sibling one of his
universe-renowned hugs. Like the man himself, they just made everything
“Thanks, man.” He answered,
pulling back only to keep Pidge close. “And I promise I’ll take good care
of her. Ever since I met you and the rest of your crazy family, I knew without
a doubt that should any kind of relationship happen that I would fit in just
Matt couldn’t help but
laugh. “You sure do.” He assured. “Don’t you worry- I know you will.
Not because I’m the ‘threatening big brother’ or anything, but because you
actually will. I’ve seen it. I speak for Dad and everyone else that the two of
you could not have found anyone more perfect for each other.”
As one song faded out into
another, it wasn’t long before all three of them had crowded onto the dance
floor (Pidge having long since ditched the heels she referred to as ‘demon
shoes’), tripping over themselves with anyone else who cared to join as
the ‘Cha Cha Slide” blared over the sound systems. Granted, most of those
who cared to join consisted of the other Paladins, but just being in the center
with those they have loved and fought with was an absolute riot.
Of course, there were a few
more classics in the mix, including the ‘Electric Slide’, the ‘Cupid
Shuffle’, and even the famed ‘Mambo No.5′- the group laughing and giggling
as they yelled out substitute names instead (mainly their own and others that
they knew). But as the reception went on, slower songs began to play more
frequently as the soft glow from the lights and lanterns contrasted with the
late evening sky. And as the sun dipped down behind the trees, Pidge and Hunk
had found themselves in each other’s arms- not planning to let go any time
Author’s Note: This was a request and I hope you all enjoy this! Just a quick warning I proofread this twice but it was longer than my other ones so I might have missed a couple of mistakes. If you want you can let me know and I’ll be happy to fix them c: Enjoy!
Darry assigns everyone a job to help out. He’s nervous that you’ll figure out what he’s been planning since the first time you asked him if you would see him on your birthday it took him a minute to come up with something so you had your suspicions but still when you walked into that room with all your friends just for you you were taken aback. It was way better than what you had imagined in your head.
Darry and you sat side by side on the couch. He had his arm around your waist and you were eating your cake, giving him a few bites along the way.
“You’re sure you were surprised?” he asked you for the fifth time that night causing you to roll your eyes fondly.
“Yes I was, Dar, now stop worrying.” You demanded and gave him another bite. You stayed in that position for a while, even after the cake was gone, just watching the boys messing around and playing cheesy party games. “You know this is the best birthday I’ve ever had.” you told him.
“Yea,” you grinned “My hero.” you said before kissing him lightly.
Sodapop: Sodapop’s been buzzing with excitement ever since they started getting ready for the party. He’ll lay up at night talking to Ponyboy if he’s awake making sure that they’ve remembered everything. He even practiced for a week to make sure he could neatly write your name on the cake in frosting.
Ponyboy was chatting to you about nothing as you parked out front of the Curtis’s house. It was Friday night the day before your birthday and Sodapop asked if you would bring Ponyboy to a doctors appointment out of town because he and Darry had to work. The appointment was in the morning but Ponyboy had begged you to stay out a little bit insisting that you pick out your birthday present there for him to buy you since the shops were better. You insisted that he didn’t have to get his brothers girlfriend a gift but he smiled and told you that you were like his sister and he wanted to. So for a while he walked you around until it was finally time to go. You pulled up to the house and were surprised to see the cars there.
“Didn’t Soda say he had to close tonight?” You asked Ponyboy who just shrugged.
“Come in and ask him yourself.” He said and so you got out of the car and walked up to the front door. You gave Ponyboy a funny look as he held the door open for you but you went inside and immediately your eyes found your boyfriend who was standing there holding a chocolate cake with your name and ‘Happy Birthday’ written in pink frosting. Suddenly you saw everyone else at the time that they all yelled ‘Surprise’.
Immediately you grinned and looked around at everyone. They all rushed up to hug you and you thanked them when all the excitement died down you made your way over to Sodapop to kiss him softly. He had set the cake down but after you pulled away you swiped a bit of frosting to taste. “You’re the best.” you said to him and he immediately hugged you close.
Ponyboy: Ponyboy is all about the decorations for this. He takes whatever he can get his hands on and tries to turn it into something he can hang up around the house. It’s not everyday they throw parties and he wanted it to be as big as possible. There are streamers covering every inch of the walls and everything was perfect until the day before your birthday when he went to your house after you didn’t show up for school and only to find out that you were sick. Ponyboy was absolutely heartbroken when he got home and his brothers were shocked when they got home from work that night to see everything been taken down. They tried to cheer him up but nothing worked until the next day when he got an idea. With the help of the gang Ponyboy gathered as much as he could from the party and made his way to your house. If you couldn’t come to the party he was determined to bring the party to you. He got sick a couple of days later but for him it was worth it.
You were a bit grumpy the morning of your birthday when you still woke up with a sore throat and a fever. You were even more annoyed when your mom made you get ready for the day anyways. All you had wanted to do was spend the day in bed so you could hopefully be well enough by night time to enjoy your birthday for a couple of hours. When you finally came downstairs dressed your jaw dropped open as you saw the streamers, balloons, and group of guys standing in your living room.
“Surprise.” they all said and immediately you ran up to Ponyboy to give him a huge hug.
“You didn’t have to do this.” you said as he held you close.
“It was my pleasure.” he replied.
The others didn’t stay to long but Ponyboy did. You and him sat on your couch watching cartoons. He rubbed your back while you slept and even gave you a quick kiss when it was time for him to go.
“You’re gonna get sick.” You teased and he just shook his head.
“Happy Birthday, Y/N.”
Two-Bit: Two-Bit threw a party for his little sister a couple of months before and so he had been wanting to throw another party for a while since that one was so fun. He used the left over decorations from his sisters for yours and it wasn’t much but to him decorations didn’t matter all that much. It was all about the food and the people. You play games all night. Even after everyone left you and Two-Bit stay up until morning playing card games with each other and it’s the most fun you can ever remember having.
“Jeez,” you said when a glare of sun hit your eyes from the window behind Two-Bit. “We stayed up all night. The sun is rising.”
Two-Bit turned to look.”Hell I ain’t even tired.” he grinned.
“Me either,” You murmur and started dealing a new game. “Thank you by the way. It was the best night ever.”
“Well I’m glad you enjoyed it. I expect the same thing on my birthday.” he joked and picked up his cards with one hand while his other hand reach out to take yours. “Happy Birthday, baby.”
Dally: You had befriended the gang a few weeks after moving into town and you soon began developing feelings for Dally. You two had a couple of dates and your birthday was coming up so Dally decided to help you celebrate with a party. He was secretly nervous that you would hate it so he tried not to let the boys in on how much he wanted to get it perfect. He had never had a birthday party or even gone to one before so he planned on just bringing you all to Buck’s but Ponyboy made some small suggestions to him about what would be better than that. On the day that they all got together to decorate they all expected Dallas not to show up but he did and when the other boys slacked off he would get angry with them for not taking this seriously.
Dally was standing up on a chair as he pinned streamers up onto the wall. Behind him Two-Bit, Steve, and Sodapop were all sitting on the living room floor sucking the helium out of a balloon. They were all laughing hard as Two-Bit told them a joke, although they found his voice funnier than what he was saying. Dally turned around to glare at them.
“Will you knock it off? Those things ain’t cheap.” he snapped and swore at them before turning back to what he was doing. Their laughing took a few minutes to finally be able to die off and once it did Two-Bit stood to stand by Dally.
“Jeez, Dal, party’s are supposed to be fun why are you taking this so serious? What are you in love or something?”
“Shut up.” Dally frowned then swore loudly as he stabbed himself with the pin he had been using to hang up a streamer. “I’m allowed to care about someone. Jeez, man, be serious will you?”
“Alright alright.” Two-Bit said and backed off. The boys all went back to helping and soon everything was done.
Dally was the one to go and pick you up to bring you to the party and you were genuinely surprised when you walked in. The party was still going on at two in the morning but Dally and you snuck out onto the front porch for a moment.
“Sorry I didn’t get you a real present, doll.” He told you looking briefly apologetic as he lit a cigarette.
“This party was the best present I could have asked for.” You replied smiling as you both sat down on the steps. “Thank you.”
“Yea well I was thinking that maybe you could start wearing my ring,” Dally said casually. “You know like go steady, babe.”
“I would love that,” You grinned and he wrapped an arm around you to keep you warm after he handed you the ring. “Best birthday ever.” you stated, putting it on.
Steve: You showed up to the DX one day on your way to work and heard him and Sodapop talking about balloons. When they saw that you heard he had to tell you that they were planning the surprise for Ponyboy since your birthdays were close. You were excited and asked for a job so they put you in charge of keeping Ponyboy away they day of the party while they set everything up. You didn’t expect a thing and so when you showed up to the Curtis house with Ponyboy and they all shouted your name you started crying.
You were completely overwhelmed when you saw everyone jump out and yell surprise at you that the tears immediately started flowing. You didn’t even realize it until Steve came over to hug you tightly.
“I’m sorry, baby. Do you hate it?” He asked.
“No!” You cried and hugged him tightly. “I’m just surprised.”
“Yea well that’s kinda the point.” he teased and you shoved him lightly though you smiled up at him. He reached his hand to wipe your tears away. “Happy Birthday, babe.”
Johnny: Johnny was proud when the idea came to him. He didn’t want anything to make it huge. He wanted all of his money put towards the best present he could save up for-which he had been ever since you started dating. The boys helped him out with a cake and some other small things and a few of your friends came over. When you walked inside and everyone yelled surprise you laughed and kissed Johnny hard. It was a nice night just talking with all of your friends and Johnny gave you your present on the walk home. It was an old charm bracelet from a second hand store in town. He felt bad that the metal looked a bit old but you absolutely loved it.
“You threw me a party, Johnny Cade, you did not have to buy me anything.” You said in surprise as your boyfriend handed you a small, messily wrapped, box.
“Just open it, okay?” he asked, slouching a bit nervously and so you did. You stopped walking as you pulled the bracelet from the box.
“I know it ain’t that fancy. And it’s kind of dirty but in couple weeks I’ll have saved up enough to get it cleaned for you.”
“They said if you don’t like it they’ll take it back and you can pick out something else.”
You lean forward to kiss him quickly and stop his ramblings. “Will you help me put it on?” you smile at him and so he did.
“You don’t mind it?”
“Don’t mind it? Johnny, this is the nicest thing I have. It’s the best thing in the world and I love it and I love you.” You rush out. Hearing your confirmation made Johnny stand up straight again more confident. He took your hand in his and both of you smiled at the feeling of the bracelet on your wrist.
i’m proud of you. let’s just start off with that. you’ve truly blossomed within the last year and i’ve noticed it more and more lately. you have climbed out of bad places on your own. you wanted to relapse but you didn’t. you’ve been talking more too lately, pushing your social anxiety aside and panic attacks down. and you’ve gotten a good response out of it. people talk to you more because they realize you’re not a snobby bitch. that’s so nice, isn’t it? when someone turns to say something to you instead of the family member you’re with, when they don’t completely ignore your existence? it’s a nice realization that everyone doesn’t immediately hate you but your quietness just comes off as not approachable. you’re working on that. please don’t slip back into that recluse. i like this side of you better. i don’t know how you’re keeping yourself calm but you are, and that’s what matters.
you’re happy. you’re really and truly happy, you know? and you need to continue to be happy without worrying about the bad that is sure to come. let’s get it out of our heads that there is only ever a calm before a storm. let’s get it out of our heads that with every high there will be a hard fall. you’re too much like your dad - he said it himself. he’s never allowed himself to get his hopes up too high. you got his sarcasm and his metabolism and his sense of humor but you also got his mentality. it isn’t too late to change that. learn from his mistakes. he told you to, didn’t he?
you have to stop being so afraid of not finding love. a relationship isn’t everything. you of all people know this. i know that you crush on most of the strangers you come in contact with. you’re just so full of love. that isn’t a bad thing. but you need to figure out how to channel that. and you need to stop giving so much more love than you receive. don’t give your all to someone that doesn’t give you anything. don’t wish so desperately for things to turn out one certain way. have an open mind.
i know you are terrified that someone will never fall for you and that if they do, it won’t be a mutual feeling. i know that you have a bad track record of losing people and pushing them away even if it isn’t intentional. but someone is going to stay through that. someone is going to refuse to budge. someone is going to love you.
and you deserve that. you have your bouts of insecurity and you think there are so many people out there that are better than you. prettier than you. funnier than you. less awkward than you. but you know what?
you are kind. you are selfless. your heart is so big and maybe everyone doesn’t understand it but they don’t have to. because i do. you’re beautiful when you’re laughing, really laughing, not hiding your mouth or stopping any sound from passing through your lips. when you’re laughing so hard that you can’t catch your breath and you’re bowed over. when you’re laughing softly under your breath and looking away. you’re beautiful when you’re with animals. you light up when you see dogs. you’re a very likable person when you’re around dogs. cats too. ferrets. all furry creatures. you scoop them up and kiss them and hug them and pet them and feed them and the whole rest of the world blurs. you’re beautiful when you’re waving at babies and making faces at them when their moms aren’t looking just to make them giggle.
you’re beautiful when you’re picking at your nails and lost in thought. you’re beautiful when you’re staring at the window, watching everything pass by and listening to music, completely at peace. you’re beautiful when you’re swinging and your hair is blowing in the wind and you’re going faster and faster and you’re smiling. you’re beautiful when you’re swimming and you become one with the water and wish that you were a mermaid. you’re beautiful when you’re screaming at your favorite characters on tv and banging your fist on the arm of the chair when they don’t listen. you’re beautiful when you get excited about something and you go on, loud and confident and you don’t catch yourself and stop talking because you think no one is interested.
you’re beautiful when you make stupid puns that crack you up while everyone else just rolls their eyes at you. you’re beautiful when your favorite songs come on the radio and you shush people that are talking and turn the volume up. you’re beautiful when people are singing happy birthday to you and you don’t know where to look or what to do with your hands or how to sit. you’re beautiful when you’re drawing and it’s turning out bad but you keep trying to get the idea down. you’re beautiful when you’re taking a picture and you walk around the subject twenty times just trying to get the image to look the way it is in your head. you could fill your camera roll full of nearly identical pictures until you get the perfect focus, perfect lighting, perfect angle and it shows how passionate you are.
you’re beautiful when you can’t figure out what words you’re looking for and you’re stammering and getting frustrated because the sentence won’t come out. you’re beautiful when you’re writing and you keep going over the same paragraph because something is missing and you have to figure it out before you can move on. you’re beautiful when you are singing and you sound bad but you don’t care because you feel good. you’re beautiful when you’re sharing your food and getting your shirt caught on your head trying to take it off and glaring at your reflection as you comb your hair because it should not get so knotted after sleeping on it for just two hours.
you are beautiful. you are. not just outside. but inside too. your personality shines through in those moments. and those are things that other people will notice about you. they’ll notice how you pop your knuckles way too often and how you leave calendars up two years past the time they were supposed to be changed and how you refuse to eat soup with a spoon and they will love you for all of those silly little things. because those are the things that make you, you.
you’ve been going through an identity crisis since you were like eight years old, trying to figure out what kind of person you were and trying to be someone that other people liked and trying to not change. but you’ll be twenty next week and you’ve pretty much said to yourself “fuck it, what does it matter if i know who i am, why don’t i just be whoever that is and not think about it” and i hope you keep thinking that way. you get so caught up in trying to be the right person and not be like everyone else and not be too original that you get lost in the process and you deserve to be seen. you deserve to be heard. so don’t feel so terrible about talking too much or not talking enough or making eye contact or not making eye contact. just do what you do. and keep going. don’t dwell so much. don’t worry so much.
life is good and you are really starting to grasp that. don’t let it go. don’t slip back into that sadness. we have came too fucking far for that, okay?
A birthday gift for the wonderful @mykindofcontent who asked for a fake dating Taakitz fic, I had fun throwing some secret twin angst and future Taakitz fluff into here I hope it’s worthy of one of the most amazing people in the universe! Happy birthday!
Day 3: “My friend bet me 20 bucks that I wouldn’t walk up to a random underclassman and ask them to senior prom and I’m about to be 20 dollars richer and, no, that doesn’t invalidate the question, you’re actually really cute”
What if I like you?
Luna usually tries to study before the test. Like earlier than fifteen minutes before. She’s pretty fucked, but let’s be real, has any of you guys never forgotten about quiz? Luna did this for the first time and she’s lucky she has all the notes. There’s not much material to remember, yet studying while panicking isn’t any help in revision. At least there’s that it’s lunch break, she can ignore Jim and Yam, sitting by the table with them and Nina, so this might actually work and let Luna pass this shit.
She’s by the second topic already, feeling really successful when someone taps her arm softly.
“Whoever you are, go away, please,” Luna murmurs not taking her eyes off her notebook. There’s something wrong, because she’s not able to hear any sound, any noise around her and Nina kicks her ankle under the table. Luna sighs leaving her notebook as she turns her head back and chokes.
This is very typical reaction when you turn around just to see very confident and very smug Matteo Balsano.
This was supposed to be a quickie but somehow ended up around 2000 words. Oops. Anyhow another RoyAi baby Maes Mustang adventure based on these pieces of fanart: @theysangastheyslew ‘s piece and this other one.
“Dad? Can I have this?”
Roy looked over at his son rifling
through the laundry on the floor and knew he shouldn’t have delegated
the task to the kid. Maes was supposed to be helping him sort the
colors and whites and not using it as his own personal thrift store.
Still, the boy looked so excited to claim his old academy hoodie
that he it was going to be hard to deny him. “It’s a little big
for you, isn’t it?”
“Who are you calling small?” Maes
quipped and clutched the hoodie in his arms and frowned.
