to save face in front of the media

Best Friend Jeno

this is for @jfcwhatevenismylifeanymore , thanks for requesting love 💜

  • i miss this sunshine so much honestly
  • and i see some of y'all sleeping on him so im not gonna allow that
  • kidding dont smack me im smol
  • okay let’s start !!

  • you’d known him since you were kids because y'all were in the same kindergarden

  • even when he was younger , he was so goodlooking and cute you lowkey had a small crush/infatuation with him once
  • but all that faded away when one day in primary/elementary school y'all got partnered to do a math project
  • jeno being the sweetheart , he contributed a lot to the project and did like at most 80% of the work
  • but he still credited you and told the teacher ,
  • “ Y/N did most of the work !! please give her good marks ”
  • and like that you were touched and the both of you started to hang out even more ,
  • from joining each other during break time
  • and visiting each others’ houses when you had the time to
  • and you realised that both of you had the same interests and likings , everything instantly clicked
  • fast forward to now , y'all are still in the same school , same class
  • the thought that both of you were actually long lost siblings actually did cross your mind once ,
  • since the both of your personalities fitted each other and y'all could hardly ever be seperated
  • most of the time he just laughs and smiles a lot at the things you say ,
  • making small comments like
  • “ you’re so stupid haha ”
  • “ why are we friends ”
  • “ i can’t believe i’ve known you for more than 10 years already ”
  • the next moment he’s posting on social media how thankful he is for you
  • he saved your contact name as ’ tomato face 🍅 “ because he keeps teasing and reminding you of the time where you got all embarrassed in front of the whole class as you were told to present alone , and you were blushing like mad , when you were like 8
  • and you saved his as ’ unnecessary eyesmiles 🌙 ’
  • lowkey suggested by donghyuck
  • but also because he’s always smiling with his eyes even when there isn’t a need to
  • but again he looks cute whenever he does so you don’t say anything
  • honestly the type of best friend to help you no matter what
  • one time one other guy was harrassing and getting too close to you ,
  • jeno noticed and ran straight up to you , his arms slinging around your shoulders,
  • ” let’s go babe “
  • and when you stare at him in confusion , he’d nudge you
  • ” y-yeah let’s go jeno oppa “
  • and right after he acts like a mom & asks you if you’re fine
  • but after he laughs it off and teases you about the face you made when you were shocked previously
  • and after that incident people around the school started speculating and making rumours that both of you were a couple
  • and some even said that y'all had been sweethearts since young
  • like one junior suddenly came up to the both of you one day and mentioned about how much she supported the relationship
  • and both you and jeno would just be there staring at each other confused and awkwardly
  • it became such a huge matter your parents had to personally go down to the school to prove that y'all were just best friends
  • because the teachers heard from one student that he saw both of you making out in school one day
  • what is with these people y'all two are just smol kids im-
  • he loves disturbing and teasing you when you’re busy doing something ,
  • because he doesn’t like it when you get too focused and gets stressed
  • so he uses this as a way to cheer you up
  • and he’d purposely keep your stationery away from you when you were doing your homework ,
  • as he giggled and flashed you his eyesmile again
  • for once you thought he was innocent from those eyes
  • he’s so supportive of your decisions ,
  • like when you told him you found out you had feelings for mark ,
  • he got excited with/for you and literally wrote a long list on mark’s likes/dislikes all for you , so you were able to know him better
  • and with the help of donghyuck , he managed to save your number into mark’s phone and he also texted you with it ,
  • ” hey ? “
  • ” oh im sorry , who’s this ? “
  • ” it’s mark here “
  • and you’d stare at your phone screen in horror ,
  • but another text comes in
  • ” i don’t remember saving this in my phone but it says ’ qt tomato 🍅 ’ , may i know who this is ? “
  • and when you yelled at jeno to complain , he’d just laugh it off and apologise
  • but thanks to him you slowly got closer to mark and according to jeno too ,
  • he said that mark had feelings for you also
  • he wouldn’t mind skinship at all but he knows his boundaries ,
  • and he didn’t get too close to you as he was afraid the rumours would start again , and that it’ll only affect you and mark’s relationship
  • hugs and linking arms are normal though
  • and he loves to play with your hair when he’s bored too
  • when he’s in a good mood he treats you to meals ,
  • and would also treat you like he’s your older brother ,
  • getting you things want
  • at the end of the day he’s always grateful to have you as a bestfriend ,
  • just as much as you are
  • he’s such an innocent and fun person to be with , who wouldn’t want to be best friends with him tbh
  • i miss lee jeno
  • i hope y'all enjoyed this !!
His mother spoke often in capitals after the war. “Put the School Feud behind you and focus on Mending Fences,” she advised. “He Testified in your trial — and mine — surely that means he’s willing to put the Past behind him.”

It only meant that Potter was a self-righteous bastard intent on Doing Good, Draco thought, but he didn’t reply to his mother and just stared in the middle distance, not really taking in the white and gold drawing room of their London house, a house drowning in silence, a house that got no visitors except for some insistent journalists that rang the bell asking for an “exclusive of his side of the War” as if Draco was an idiot and didn’t know it was a recipe for disaster, selling your soul to the media. His mother sighed, possibly remembering glorious days of dinner parties that this house held just a few years ago. “We need all the help we can get These Days.”

But Draco had no inclination to mend fences. He’d do anything to help his family, except approach Potter. Even though he knew he’d been wrong, or perhaps because he’d been horribly wrong in so many things, Draco could never willingly face Potter again, could never stand in front of someone he’d treated so badly and who ended up saving his life and say what? Be my friend? Draco knew how that story went, he’d known since he was eleven.

ON WHAT SHE’S LOOKING FORWARD TO AFTER LEAVING THE WHITE HOUSE

“My hopes are to recapture some of the everydayness, some anonymity. And we know that will take some time. But I always joke that I dream of opening up my front door and walking out without any notification, without any security.“

“….and it will be nice to open up the paper, look at the front page, and know that you’re not responsible for every headline… It’s sort of like, It’s not my job.”

ON THE OBSTACLES YOUNG WOMEN FACE AROUND THE WORLD

“…there are places in the world where families don’t believe that girls are worthy of an education. They’ll save money and send their sons to school, but they believe that it’s more important for their girls to stay home, get married early, care for the chickens, cook, and clean.”

ON THE STRATEGY BEHIND HER SOCIAL MEDIA USE

“We can fool ourselves into thinking that everybody is still watching the evening news, but I live with Generation Z, and I know that their habits, the way they take in information in, is so different. And they’ve changed… We’ve got to meet our constituents where they are, and they’re on Snapchat.”

I want to see myself more than the image that I see whenever I look in front of the mirror or the pictures that are saved on my phone or the ones uploaded in my social-media accounts. I want to see myself from someone else’s eyes. I want to know how I look like every time I am so engrossed with the book I am currently reading or whenever I am so serious writing my thoughts down my journal. I want to see how my smile looks whenever I give it to a certain stranger or how ridiculous my face is each time I share my silliness with my friends by telling a crazy joke. I want to watch myself on a peaceful sleep as I dream a dream that I would not even remember when I wake up. I want to see myself during those moments when I am so vulnerable, when I don’t care about the world, when I don’t think anyone is watching me. I want to see myself the way I see everyone else; maybe then I’d learn to love myself the way I did to anyone else.
