tour of campus

letsbegoblingods  asked:

#28 for Amy?

What do you think a cupholder is for?

The first thing Amy said when he set his cup down on the mass of papers spread across the coffeetable was: “You do know there’s such a thing as a cupholder. Graduating a semester ahead was a big deal, especially for Amy, and to be accepted into Bludhaven University’s genetics program at such a young age and already have a spot saved to intern with Dr. Roquette was almost unheard of, but Amy’s biggest problem was housing.

Her parents (all four of them) didn’t really fight over who’s house she spent more time at anymore, but the fact remained, Bludhaven University was too far to commute from either house. Dick had gone with her one weekend to tour the campus and check out the dorms, and while Amy had loved the campus, she’d absolutely hated the dorms, so she was looking for an apartment.

“Why do you even want my opinion?” Dick inquired. “You’re the one that’s going to be living there, you and Artemis.”

Artemis had transferred to Bludhaven University last semester and one semester in the dorms had been enough for her. She’d suggested rooming together to Amy on patrol, because even though she loved Wally with all her heart, he had a full ride scholarship at his school and Bludhaven had the best program for Artemis, so they’d have to deal with being apart.

“Yeah, but you’re going to be coming up to see me all the time, baby blues, and you know,” Amy’s eyes shifted, “maybe you’ll want to move in with me after you graduate.”

A smile curled Dick’s lips. “So, you like the brownstone?”

Amy grinned widely.

minho in college
  • double major in primary education and history 
  • wants to teach elementary school!!!!
  • varsity soccer so he has the custom backpack that says CHOI and always wears something uni-related 
  • like seriously….. seeing him not in a some sort of three-quarter zip or sweater with the uni’s name emblazoned on it is shocking af (taemin: go away we haven’t gotten new shipment since the last time you were here which was yesterday you already own the ENTIRE store
  • he also owns uni socks which he unironically wears all the time and all the different types of shot glasses (onew’s broken at least three of them but minho just whips out extras, srsly they’re never ending) 
  • a literal walking, talking uni advertisement (key: pls let me take you shopping for something else / minho: i have other clothes / key: WHERE)
  • in theory he probably should work at the bookstore but he sees how much taemin hates his job and if he can just use his discount there’s no need~ 
  • was actually scouted to be a campus tour guide (literally someone came up to him and begged him to join bc he was perfect for the job) and he is ridiculously good at it 
  • also he could walk backwards well which is why onew did not make the cut
  • did so much extra research about the college so that he could be prepared for any questions and also to have fun facts on hand 
  • which also came in handy for boring his friends to submission with very dry versions of the history of each and every building and sometimes he just does it for shits and giggles 
  • once he came into the cafe during onew’s and jong’s shift and started reciting the history of the building they were in and the origin of the coffee bean and their faces were just pure panic bc they couldn’t even RUN AWAY and they can’t even fight their costumers even though they are being GIANT JERKS (jong: i will give you two coffees out of my own pocket for you to stop / minho: awww hyung you’re so sweet pls make them ventis) 
  • but he’s just SO enthusiastic about his school that many incoming students could attribute their decision to come here to choi minho, master tour guide 
  • he also volunteers at after-school programs in elementary schools and the students always scramble to him when they see him coming in 
  • helps them with their homework and reads to them and lets the lil ones tie tufts of his hair (minho: do i look pretty?? / kid: the prettiest!!) 
  • he’s so sweet with them and they always want to climb up on his shoulders and he lets them and holds their arms out like an airplane (and so that they won’t fall) and zooms around the room 
  • avid college sports fan 
  • no matter what the game, you can probably hear minho cheering loudly from the bleachers 
  • someone got this great snapshot of him with football stripes on his cheeks and yelling which was blown up to larger-than-life proportions and lives in the welcome center 
  • arguably his proudest achievement (”look mom i made it”)  
  • srsly the school should honestly give him free tuition for all the endorsement he does as the uni’s poster boy 
  • when studying he’s usually locked up with onew in the library but he’s also known to always keep his notes on him so he could study during breaks at soccer practice 
  • he always has bananas on him that he’ll totally just give to anyone who asks but it’s a lot of bananas 
  • also never skips breakfast no matter what so he’s seen a lot sprinting to class with a piece of toast in his mouth like an anime character 

i’m going into my junior year of high school, the time when many students are getting ready to apply for college. many of my friends and peers have been concerned about what, exactly, they should be doing to prepare this year, and when. so, we held a college information session. this may be geared towards my specific area/region, but hopefully everyone can take something out of this. here are some tips that we learned:

ON COLLEGE VISITS

questions to ask:

  1. what is your freshman retention rate?
  2. what is the percentage of students that graduate in 4 years? (new statistic: ¾ of students don’t; the average student takes 5 ½ years to graduate)

make sure there is written documentation of your visit

when reviewing applications, colleges note “touch points”– these include things like taking an official tour, sending in those cards you get in the mail, or something as easy as emailing one of their admissions counselors with a simple question. they’ll keep your information, and it may give you an advantage over other students because you showed you’re seriously interested in their school. so, even if you’re taking an informal campus tour, make sure to stop in the admissions office and fill out one of those cards with your information. it’ll be added into their system as a touch point– and you’re already one step ahead!

TESTING

some things to remember:

  • the SAT and ACT are, for the most part, equally accepted by colleges.
  • certain schools may require an SAT subject test. make sure to check out programs you’re interested in so that you can prepare all of its requirements.
  • the SAT is a test of aptitude, while the ACT is more knowledge-based and straightforward. 
  • if you’re bright and a good test taker but maybe you don’t get the best grades, the SAT may be more fit for you.
  • if you’re more studious and focused on grades and retaining information you’ve learned in class, the ACT may be a better match. 
  • a guidance counselor recommends: take both tests once, and whichever you feel you performed better on, take it again. 
  • many colleges like to see growth in scores because it shows you’re really working towards something. this may change depending on the selectivity of the school, but consider this before only sending your best score. 
  • if you know what colleges you’re interested in, check and see what they prefer/require before taking the tests. most likely, you’ll save yourself a lot of time, effort, and money in the long run.

SO, WHEN SHOULD I BE DOING ALL OF THIS?

here’s a timeline of what was recommended for your junior year

October: 

  • take the PSAT again (this is the year that you can qualify for NMSQT). i’m not sure if this applies everywhere but i know where i live, this is a requirement.
  • if your school uses Naviance, make sure you have your login information. you should be using the tools it provides to research colleges and find out more about jobs you may be suited for.

November/December

  • take the ACT or SAT. if you’ve already taken the SAT, i suggest taking the ACT before doing the SAT again. 
  • this is around the time you should start visiting colleges if you haven’t already. if you can’t go to schools, look for information sessions and college fairs near you. if you’re on a college’s email list, they’ve likely sent you dates that they offer tours or perhaps are even hosting information sessions closer to you.

April/May/June

  • start asking for letters of recommendation!! many teachers give letters on a first-come-first-serve basis, so get ahead. usually you want to have 2-4 of these. think about programs and schools you may apply for, and think about what subject teachers may be most helpful in your application. also, check schools’ websites and see what they recommend/require. outside letters are also okay, if they’re from someone who knows you and your work ethic well. 
  • consider taking the SAT or ACT again. 
  • schedule your senior year. it’s no longer a time to slack off; colleges now look at your grades as late as third marking period. continue to challenge yourself, but also take electives that interest you to get a better idea of what careers you may want to pursue.
  • get the Common App essays from your guidance counselor. you should at least think about these over the summer to get an idea of what you’ll say in your application essays.

August

  • this is when the Common App is available for that year. many, but not all schools, use this. do your own research to decide if it’s a necessity for you.

MISC. TIPS

  • very few students partake in college interviews anymore. requesting and interview may set you apart from other students (touch point!), but it is definitely not required or even recommended by the vast majority of schools.
  • if you know you will be going to grad school or a higher ed program, think about where you want to concentrate your money. a cheaper but respected undergraduate school may be a great idea to save money for a great graduate school. (you probably don’t care where your doctor went for their undergrad, but where’d they go to med school?)
  • MAKE SURE YOU’RE MEETING YOUR SCHOOL’S GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS.
  • check to see what courses certain colleges recommend you take in high school. this may be a good way to plan the rest of your high school schedule, and also gauge whether or not you can achieve a college’s expectations.

*rises from a deep endless sleep wide eyed*

What if Bitty and Jack met when he came to do a tour of Samwell campus? Just like the frogs?

Maybe Coach’s team had a game not too far from there and he dropped Bitty at Samwell with intentions to pick him up later.

17 year old Bitty nervously and wide eyed walking around, already imagining himself in Samwell, when he turns around and realises he can’t see the group.

After some panicking he decided to head to the ice rink because he knows that will be part of the tour, and he can wait there till the other guys show up.

Practice is over at this point, but there’s somebody still taking shots at the net so Bitty sits out of the way and tries not to look too amazed by the skills the guy is showing.

Jack, eventually notices him and approaches to get him to leave, Bitty explains he is there waiting for the group and Jack tells him the group already passed through the building.

“Wait,” Jack says when he realises what this means, “are you applying to Samwell? To play… hockey?”

Bitty awkwardly shrugs, “I already got in with a scholarship I just wanted to see the campus.”

Jack is horrified and demands that Bitty puts some skates and joins him on the ice. Thankfully Bitty had his skates with him and they play and Jack is a little annoyed because Bitty managed to score on him once, Jack scored 3 times which is actually not bad on the rookie.

He asks for Bitty’s email address.

“I’m sending you a workout program and a diet plan, you need to bulk up before the season, I want you to keep me updated on your progress and send me your stats, actually send them to Ransom he keeps track of that…”

Bitty wide eyed just nods along, trying not to cough a lung out.

“The checking is going to be an issue, we’ll think of something…”

Jack here sees Bitty and sees potential, he has a few months before Bitty will join them so he is determined to get him up to his standards by then.

And that’s how Bitty ends up becoming long distance friends with the Samwell group. Ransom and Holster keep track of his stats and give him tips on all the stuff he should do before coming to college, Shitty writes a long essay about how he hopes Bitty isn’t some dickhead from the south and then goes into weird tangents about feminism and social justice.

Jack messages him all the time asking if he’s eating enough protein, if he did the latest workout he sent and if he studied for his math exam.

Bitty replies to all the emails a little weirded out but happy he sort of will know people when he arrives, and also he sends pies, a lot of pies.

Ransom and Holster send a lot of emojis in gratitude, Shitty somehow finds his phone number and calls him to tell him what a magnificent person he is, and Jack calls to remind him to eat more protein.

And I don’t know where this is going besides this, I was just intrigued by the idea they could have met Bitty before he joined Samwell, feel free to take it from here :)

Lydia is going to drive Stiles from California to Washington, DC. According to Google it takes 41 hours to drive that distance. 41 fucking hours of Stiles and Lydia in a car together. 41 hours of arguing over who gets radio control. 41 hours of having to stop because Stiles has to pee. 41 hours of “Seriously, you’ve never seen Star Wars either?”, 41 hours of Lydia having to listen to Stiles on the phone with Scott because they’ve never been so far apart.

And then they get to the university and she helps him with his dorm. She meets his roommate. She complains about his choice of bedsheets. He gives her a campus tour but of course he gets them lost. They go get dinner before he forces her to watch the original Star Wars trilogy and she spends the night in his dorm.

The next morning she goes to leave and sets out on the road to MIT (which is another 7 hours) only to find that he has made her enough playlists to last the trip.

They do four way video chats with Scott and Malia. They try and see each other on weekends. He calls her when he can’t sleep because he is worried Liam has set Beacon Hills on fire. She calls him to complain about classes. He laughs and reminds her that she could teach the class.

THEY LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER

DONT FUCK ME OVER JEFF DAVIS

anonymous asked:

Could you please do a Friends to Lovers for Ten? I really love the way you write NCT and I feel like you should write more for them! Love you mom, thanks bye!!!

it’s been some time since ive written for nct,,,but ten’s solo is amazing!!! here is some cute friends-to-lovers ten!!!!

  • you guys grew up as best friends in your highschool but when college came around,,,,ten moved to another city for university 
  • and like you know that that uni is his DREAM school and so ofc you did nothing but support him,,,,,,,,but the fear of becoming distant did kind of haunt you,,,,,
  • luckily tho ten would always text you and snapchat you and one weekend even invited you to come up and visit him on campus!!! which you agreed to because in all honesty you missed seeing ten in person
  • with his shining smile,,, vibrant personality,,,,you just missed being around his positive aura
  • and when you got to his dorm you quickly realized aLOT of people fell the same way
  • like ten had told you he’d take you on a tour of the campus (after hugging you for a straight 15 minutes and maybe JUST MAYBE shedding a tear or two) but the second you stepped out of his room
  • like five people greeted him??? the random person in the elevator did a handshake with him???? you guys weren’t even halfway through the quad and someone came up to ten to invite him to a party while another person told him they’d love to have him audition for this role in an upcoming play
  • and you could understand his popularity easily,,,,,,ten is an amazing person
  • but with every new friend that came up to him,,,,,,,,subconsciously you began to worry your best friend,,,,,,,might find someone better than you at this uni
  • but when ten turns to you, big smile on his face and he’s like “i really like it here!!!! the only thing that’s missing is that you’re not here with me!!!”
  • you can only grin back and go “yeah!! im happy for you, i really am!!”
  • and for the rest of the day you two hangout,,,, people coming and going to talk to ten and sometimes,,,it kind of felt like you were the odd one out,,,,,,
  • which is why when ten introduces you to his roommate johnny and says he needs to run out real quick to go get some notes from another person
  • you sit there in ten’s dorm, toying with the bracelet on your hand that ten gave you when he left,,,,,,,
  • when suddenly johnny clears his throat and you look up and he’s like “is everything ok??” and you shrug and you’re like “yeah,,,,,it’s fine,,,,,”
  • but johnny doesn’t seem to be buying it and he’s like “you know,,,,,,ten talks about you a lot. you probably feel awkward with me because you don’t know me at all,,,,,,,but ten has blabbed about you so much i feel like i personally know you???”
  • and you kind of sit up and you’re like ??? oh what has he said???
  • and johnny is like “well i know you guys both like the same music, apparently you met when you dance battled to a shinee song, you were there when ten got his 3rd ear piercing and then all the other ones, and you once helped him get noodles out of his hair after he fell asleep with his face in a bowl of ramen?”
  • and you can’t help but laugh because,,,,,,all of those are memories of you and ten,,,,,,,,dear memories that you always remember,,,,,and hearing that ten remembers too,,,,,,
  • it just makes you feel good
  • but johnny kind of shifts on his own bed and is like “not to be,,,,,,,noisy but can i ask you something?”
  • and you’re like sure??? and johnny is like “well im wondering,,,,,,,are you guys really just friends? the way ten talks about you,,,,,,,is special.”
  • and you’re taken back because?? special??? you ask johnny what he means and he’s like “sometimes when ten tells me about you,,,,,he gets really caught up in describing you,,,,,i think he’s told me that you’ve got eyes prettier than the stars like three hundred times and tbh friends don’t usually talk like that about other friends.”
  • and you’re at a loss for words because,,,,,,ten,,,,,ten talks about you like that,,,,,,,
  • but before you can ask johnny again ten comes back and jokingly goes “you didn’t tell them anything crazy right johnny???” and johnny grins but you’re sitting there,,,looking down at your hands,,,,,
  • and ten asks if everything is good and you force yourself to smile and nod
  • but that night,,,,,as you’re getting ready to head back home and ten is trying to pester you into staying overnight,,,,,,even saying he’ll sacrifice himself and sleep on the floor so you can have his bed
  • you look at ten’s hands that are holding yours,,,,,holding yours comfortably because you guys are best friends,,,,,,this is normal
  • but whys your heart beating??? and why can’t you think straight when you look at his face because instead of his words you can only focus on his pretty lips????
  • and you know once you leave you might not see ten for a long time so you suddenly drop your hands from his and ten stops talking and you swallow your fear and go “ten,,,,before i leave,,,,,,i want to know ,,,,are we just friends?”
  • and ten blinks, looking at you and he’s like “,,,,,,,we’re best friends?” and you’re like “is,,,,is that it?” and ten’s cheery, bright face suddenly turns serious and you look up into his dark eyes and he goes “do you want to be something more?”
  • and you’ve never asked yourself that,,,,,,do you want to be something more to ten,,,,,,but you two have been through so much and maybe the thought of him finding a new best friend was really just a cover up for him falling in love,,,,,,,and not with you
  • and you nod slowly,,,,,because you do want to be something more and suddenly ten’s warm palm is on your cheek and he’s leaning in and you can smell the familiar scent that always lingers from ten
  • and with a small whisper he says “me too.” and then you can’t believe it,,,,but ten is kissing you,,,,,,your best friend is kissing you,,,,,,
  • and it’s a kiss that makes you melt at your knees and you want to live in this moment forever because,,,,,you’ve waited so long for it
  • and when you pull back, ten’s hands pulling you toward him by the waist, smiling as he fixes your hair and you don’t even have to ask him because ten goes 
  • “you’re the only one for me. even if we’re apart, it’s always going to be you.” 

braveten  asked:

Victor, Yuuri, and Yurio are looking at colleges when Victor sees a sign for a marathon and decides to join it with Yurio. Yuuri is holding a sign labeled 'kiss me i'm a skater' on the sidelines and Victor gets very distracted during the race.

RETIRED 5-TIME WORLD FIGURE SKATING CHAMPION TO ENTER 2018 ST LIDWINA MARATHON
Viktor Nikiforov, retired 5-time consecutive World Champion of Men’s Figure Skating, has recently announced that he will be participating in the 2018 St Lidwina Marathon on April 16. Nikiforov reportedly has taken up long-distance running as a hobby alongside coaching his husband, 2017 World Champion and Grand Prix Winner Yuuri Katsuki as well as 2016 Grand Prix Winner Yuri Plisetsky. Plisetsky is also running the marathon alongside Nikiforov, while Katsuki will be cheering at the halfway mark on the St Lidwina University campus. [MORE]


The screaming at the St Lidwina University Thunder Tunnel is, for lack of a better word, thunderous. 

Yurio had been looking at the university as a prospective applicant, and they’d lined up the visit so that they could get a campus tour and attend an admissions info session alongside participating in the marathon the next day. They were even staying at a small Airbnb just off-campus, tucked above a cosy little cafe called Charlotte’s Corner. St Lidwina was a sweet little New England college town already beginning to be warmed by spring, and Yurio had loved it.

Well, at least, he was scowling a lot less than usual. Puberty had hit Yurio like a truck, and as a consequence he liked to act extra surly to compensate for his sudden lack of grace on the ice. But when the blond had looked up at the red-brick and marble-pillar majesty that was Founders Hall, the admissions and administrative building of the liberal arts college at the university, none of that surliness had been on his face.

That had been yesterday. Today, a different sort of energy hums in the air. Yuuri is convinced most of the students piled up on the metal barriers by the main road are already well on their way to drunk if not already there. Their screams are deafening, and the bright colours of their signs flash wildly in the mid-morning sun.

Viktor and Yurio would be coming by in one of the middle groups, Yuuri knows, so they’ll be here sooner or later. He elbows his way into the crowds gathered at the barrier until he’s managed to squeeze himself up against the metal, between a girl holding a sign that says “Live Long and Prosper” and a boy with a sign that says “Kiss Me, I’m from Texas”. 

Yuuri has his own sign, of course, and he has it up just as another wave of runners begin to appear around the bend.

The screaming gets louder

Yuuri almost drops his sign in an attempt to cover his ears. Had he ever been this loud while at Wayne State? Maybe he should have had something to drink before coming out here. The girl next to him is jumping up and down now, offering high-fives to the marathon runners as they go by. Someone has come by and planted a solid smooch on the cheek of the boy from Texas. 

Yuuri himself offers a couple high-fives to passing runners who recognise him. He shouts some encouragement to them as they go past, but his voice feels oddly drowned out in the overwhelming sound.

And then he sees them both rounding the bend, and his heart picks up a little at the sight.

Yuri is wearing a loose black tank and short leopard-print shorts, his hair tied up and his expression determined. He high-fives a couple people, and offers a quick peck to a girl waving a sign that says “Kiss Me, I’m a Cat Person”. But for the most part he’s focused on the road ahead.

Viktor, on the other hand, is craning his head every which way for a sign of Yuuri. And he’s running shirtless, the white t-shirt he’d started with now uselessly draped over his shoulders. His hair is clipped out of his face and he seems to be covered in sweat, but there’s an intoxicating flush in his cheeks that has a lot of people surrounding Yuuri clamouring for him to come over and kiss them.

And Yuuri’s not about to let that happen.

Viktor!” he shouts, waving his sign. Viktor looks over, his expression lighting up at the sight as he jogs by. 

“Yuuri!” he breathes. He looks like he wants to say more, but is too exhausted to do anything else other than grab Yuuri by the back of his head and bring him in for the hottest, sweatiest, and most disgusting kiss they’ve ever shared in their life. The world falls away all the same, all the noise and screaming around them narrowing into a tunnel of sound surrounding the two of them.

Viktor’s shirt tugs a little. Yurio is dragging him away. Yuuri is dimly aware that he’s now halfway over the barrier. His sign has dropped away somewhere.

“You should go,” he breathes absently against Viktor’s lips.

“Don’t wanna,” mutters Viktor.

“You need to finish the race,” Yuuri says. “We can pick this up later.”

“Promise?” asks Viktor.

Yuuri nods. His fingers linger a moment longer on Viktor’s cheek after he’s pulled back, and then his husband is racing away, sunlight glinting off his ring. Just before he fades from view, Viktor turns back and blows him a kiss, and Yuuri catches it with a grin.

“Wow.” He hears it just to his left, and turns to see the girl staring at him, wide-eyed. He can feel the eyes of everyone nearby on him, now, striking a match to the fire spreading rapidly across his cheeks. 

“That was adorable,” someone remarks. “Can’t wait to see it break the internet.”

And then they return to the screaming, and Yuuri hopes (in vain, he knows) that Phichit won’t find any videos of him and Viktor by the end of the hour.


CHECK OUT THIS ADORABLE COUPLE AT THE 2018 ST LIDWINA MARATHON!
Rick Martin for BuzzFeed

Viktor Nikiforov and Yuuri Katsuki continue to be #relationshipgoals as Katsuki was spotted giving out some, ahem, encouragement as a spectator of the St Lidwina Marathon this past Monday.

The St Lidwina University Thunder Tunnel is a longstanding tradition of the Marathon, being located at the halfway point on the route. It offers runners a significant milestone as well as encouragement to continue the route. Katsuki was spotted at the Thunder Tunnel at around 11:30AM holding a sign that says ‘Kiss Me, I’m a Figure Skater’ and offering high-fives and encouragement to the runners that passed by.

Well, until his husband, retired five-time consecutive World Champion Viktor Nikiforov showed up with their son (in all but name) Yuri Plisetsky.

Nikiforov clearly read Katsuki’s sign and decided to take him up on the offer.

Very enthusiastically.

And of course Katsuki was very enthusiastically reciprocating.

I mean, can we blame them? Nikiforov was running shirtless by that point in the race. #thethirstisrealfolks

Eventually Plisetsky pulled Nikiforov back to the marathon at hand, and the two managed to complete with the rest of the runners.

Nikiforov repeatedly beat his personal best time by six minutes despite having been distracted by his husband along the way.

We’re sure they celebrated this little victory in their own little way afterwards. 

Black and White - Chapter 3

Characters: Baekhyun x Reader

Genre: Bad Boy AU // University AU // Fluff

Word Count: 3931 words

Plot: Baekhyun is the typical heartthrob that always gets what he wants.. until you came along.

Black and White: Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3, Chapter 4, Chapter 5, Chapter 6, Chapter 7, Chapter 8, Chapter 9 (M), Chapter 10 (M), Chapter 11

Baekhyun remained unbothered as he stood with the left side of his body leaning against a door. He was mindlessly scrolling through some posts on his phone, his countenance flashing a stoic expression.

“Move over, kiddo.” 

A voice gibed from behind him. The rude tone possessing no hint of politeness in any way as the unknown person shoved Baekhyun by the shoulders.

Well, that did it.

Baekhyun didn’t move from his position for a few seconds. Tensing his jaw, he locked his phone, shoved it into his back pocket and indolently turned 180 degrees on his heels to face his disturbance.

He was met with a man that appeared to be around the same age as Baekhyun. The man’s eyes widened slightly upon seeing Baekhyun’s face appear in his view, as if finally realizing who he was messing with. He attained a height approximately similar to Baekhyun but Baekhyun wasn’t affected by it one bit.

“Who do you think you’re talking to?” Baekhyun countered threateningly.

  • professors love him enough to let him reschedule tho
  • if he hasn’t tutored you, has probably tutored someone you know at some point

Tutor! Kang Daniel

Masterlist can be found (here) 

Based off: Cyn’s crush LOL
Genre: college! au + tutor! au 
A/N: Wrote this after seeing @wannasseu‘s post on her crush in her korean class which is rly cute btw;;; I DEMAND UPDATES!!! I hope you guys like my new theme! Both on mobile & comp :)

“Daydreaming in the midst of the night; you brush my thoughts and sweep my sleep away.”

  • You go to this tutoring academy for language classes
  • It’s actually pretty fun and it’s mixed with people of all ages and races since the classes are based on your level rather your age
  • Most of them were in high school and you guys are a pretty tight group like there’s even a group chat for all the gossips
  • Park Jihoon is dating someone???? Brand New Boys is debuting??
  • But you tend to pay extra attention to the really cute guy sitting in the back row rather than focus in class
  • That was Kang Daniel and honestly, you never dared to approach him
  • You were always intimidated by him and his group of friends who basically towered the class since they were so tall and the fact that he was a year older than you
  • Except for that one time you two paired up for a worksheet and you still can’t over how sweet he was in guiding you
  • You were new to the class back then and was super shy but like he tried his best to make you comfortable and explained most of the things
  • Due to that incident, you and your friends like to fangirl over him from time to time since you guys don’t belong to the same school
  • But then again, probably half the girls in the tutoring centre had a crush on him as he was so friendly and approachable
  • Like Daniel was downright gorgeous and extremely charming with his voice that sounds like it was dripping with honey and that sweet smile of his
  • He always looked effortlessly good in his buttons down and ripped jeans while a pair of glasses rest on the bridge of his nose
  • So one day, your best friend, Jennie, told you excitingly that Daniel will be transferring to your school as your senior
  • It was apparently because he was offered a full scholarship for winning some kind of award??
  • Regardless of that, you were ecstatic because maybe,,, this was another chance for you to speak to him
  • You were about to approach him at the end of the class, perhaps offering him a tour around the campus until your teacher stepped in
  • You nearly cursed at how bad the timing was until she handed you a stack of papers and said
  • “Daniel, can you help her to give it out?”
  • Your heart literally stopped when he nodded and gave you one of his soft smiles as he adjusted his glasses
  • Someone please teach me how to breathe again,,,,, 
  • “I heard you are transferring to my school?”
  • You asked hesitatingly, praying the conversation will carry out as planned
  • “Yeah, well it’s definitely nice to see you more than once a week.”
  • For a moment, you were stunned
  • You were going to ask him what was he implying when he took his bag and slipped out of the room while leaving you still trying to process things
  • LIKE WHAT GAME WAS HE PLAYING
  • Your questions were still left unanswered when you saw Daniel the next Monday morning in the school’s hallway
  • More like you bumped into someone and a catastrophe happened
  • You were rushing to your class since well, being late one of your forte when you knocked heads right into another person, leading your books and theirs to be scattered all over the place
  • “Da…niel?”
  • You gazed into his warm chocolate brown eyes and gave a nervous chuckle as you helped him to gather his notes
  • Not forgetting to apologize but you froze when you saw him looking at one  of the quizzes you had gotten back recently
  • It was a test for a subject you had been doing absolutely miserable in and it was embarrassing for you to even look at the score
  • “Hey do you want me to tutor me? I’m in the advanced class.”
  • “I don’t want to waste your time since I know I’m absolutely hopeless in this subject. I already planned to drop it next year ……”
  • You didn’t want to be a bother and looking at the advanced textbook he had in his hand, you wondered if he was going to think you were stupid for not scoring well at one of the easiest levels
  • “Come on let’s give it a try, meet me in the library at 4pm.”
  • Just like before, he placed your books into your arms and walked off to his next class
  • You can’t be sure what was happening,,,, because did Kang Daniel really just offered to tutor you?
  • You planned to be in the library a bit earlier to reserve a place since it was usually very crowded
  • However, your last period teacher decided it was the perfect time to introduced a new topic that took way longer than the allocated 40 minutes
  • But you didn’t have to worry when you went to the library cause Daniel was already there and it was obvious the chair next to him was yours as he had his school blazer over the chair
  • He was startled at your sudden appearance but he shifted his things and took out a few textbook that he thought would be useful
  • You wondered how good of a tutor he claimed to be able to help someone who was pretty much doomed from the start
  • Yet when he opens his mouth and starts explaining things based on the notes you had taken in the past classes,,,,, everything made sense
  • His handwriting was so neat when he wrote down the specific keywords you needed to know and like before, you were again captivated by his smooth and languid voice
  • You could tell that he made everything a lot simpler for you as he showed you a few mind maps on his laptop
  • Things started to click in your head and the dots connected
  • When you still got confused and asked Daniel to explain again, he did grin and went over it again without fail
  • It was obvious he enjoyed the subject
  • After all, how could he not be annoyed by your constant confusion and the fact that he was not getting extra credit or being paid for this??
  • “Okay! I think that’s enough for the day.”
  • He handed you his old notebook while reminding you to text him if you have any questions
  • At the end of the first session, you just feel so much more relieved and think of Daniel as your saving grace
  • As he continued to tutor you, you definitely had a lot of fun as you learned a lot of new things
  • Honestly? You were probably also falling a lot harder for him unlike that platonic crush back in your tutoring academy
  • Even at the academy, everyone could tell you two were a lot closer as he did partner up with you for projects and there were even a few classmates who asked if you two were perhaps dating
  • After the 6th session and you could tell your tutoring session with Daniel paid off
  • You had gotten a 30/30 for your latest quiz and suddenly your teacher didn’t seem like he was sprouting random information in class
  • Your heart skipped a beat when you texted him about it before the tutoring session the next afternoon and he replied
  • “I’m so happy for you.”
  • You were expecting to see him in the library not OUT of it the next day
  • But looking at his grinning figure and his bag slung at his shoulders, you knew something was up   
  • “You’ve been working hard, so as your tutor, let me reward you. My treat of course!”
  • So half an hour later and a subway ride, you found yourself in an amusement park with him
  • There’s a lot of fun rides and you have the time of your life as you let your worries slip at the back of your mind
  • Not until Daniel challenged you to enter the haunted house
  • You were not one to deal with scary things like you couldn’t even watch a horror movie without having a nightmare but you didn’t like backing down from a bet
  • So here you were screaming at the dark room and the random ghosts until you felt a hand squeezing yours, giving you warmth and the comfort you needed
  • But you could feel him trembling and realized he was probably putting a manly front for you
  • You giggled when you thought of him being scared and appreciated his effort
  • Somehow, you two managed to make it out alive and in one piece
  • However, your hands were still slipped in his,,, and it felt so  natural that you didn’t want to let go
  • Daniel continued to move quickly, slipping past people as he brought you to the last ride
  • You were sad that it was going to be over since it will be back to studying,,,,,, back to you and Daniel being just friends
  • Looking at how your fingers were entwined, you sighed as you stepped into the ferris wheel
  • You kept your eyes on the view below you, unaware that Daniel’s gaze was on you the whole time
  • But your eyes locked with his when he called out your name and he held out the hand which interweave with yours
  • “I was offered to move up a class in the academy but guess what? I told the teacher that I wanted to go up with you.”
  • You were surprised as shock covered your face but you managed to mumble a ‘why?’
  • “I will be straightforward about this …. I really like you right from the start and tutoring you made me realized how I didn’t want to let you go …”
  • You felt a lump in your throat as you gulped and questioned ‘really?’
  • Like it was still hard to believe
  • “Yes, so do feel the same? Or do I let go of your hand?”
  • You look at him, the smiling boy who had been spending so much of his time tutoring you, who did go through the hassle to find his old notes so you could do better and you smiled at him while squeezing his hand
  • Your instinct was telling you there was nothing to lose in putting your faint in this smart yet terribly attractive boy

anonymous asked:

I really love your blog! Could you do Shinee as college students or their study habits?

hi anon! i love YOU

onew: 

  • everyone automatically assumed he was an upperclassman even as a freshman 
  • looks serious and pensive when he wears his glasses, still a dork tho
  • always in sweats bc he likes to be comfy 
  • never has meals??? someone pls swipe him 
  • never on campus bc naptime 
  • can catch him in the library tho he’s that kid trying to unwrap and eat a granola bar in the quiet part of the lib 
  • he would be embarrassed but otherwise his stomach will make whale mating calls and a crinkling wrapper is the lesser evil by far 

jonghyun: 

  • sick of hearing “working at starbucks” jokes bc he’s liberal arts
  • actually is part-time barista at starbucks on campus tho
  • always has at least two essays to write at all times but always chilling until deadlines 
  • around finals: “can you snort coffee”
  • so sleep deprived that he is on another plane of existence (”i can hear my heartbeat and i don’t think that’s something that should be happening”)
  • wears sunglasses everywhere and people think it’s because he’s just constantly hungover but no sometimes he just closes his eyes to nap for a few secs without anyone noticing 
  • go to every single event where they bring puppies to campus for stress relief 

key:

  • has a blanket and does work/read outside when the weather’s warm 
  • will turn down going out to finish homework….. and actually do homework
  • but also bingewatches netflix like it’s his job 
  • does not realize that sometimes he looks at the prof too intensely and like won’t blink??? for a really long time and they are sweating 
  • always featured in the uni brochure looking fly as hell (he keeps all of them and posts them on his wall but in an aesthetic way)
  • meticulous color coded notes!!! is he a person or a typewriter 
  • sticks out his tongue when he’s concentrating on studying 

minho: 

  • is always wearing some kind of school merch srsly the bookstore gets most of their money from choi sales 
  • also has a lot of other university merch bc he traded with friends 
  • a campus tour guide 
  • he knows all the history behind the buildings and when they were built and just wants the incoming students to feel welcome 
  • there is a GIANT blown up picture of him in the welcome center of him screaming at one of the football games 
  • he’s very proud of it and has taken a pic in front of it imitating himself (it’s his pro pic he’s never going to change it) 

taemin: 

  • always looks a little harassed bc he is once again late it’s just who he is as a person
  • can never remember where his classes are and it’s the end of the semester omg 
  • his phone background is his schedule 
  • eats an obscene amount in dining halls 
  • never raises his hand but when the prof calls on him bc they don’t think he’s paying attention he has really profound answers
  • when he was a frosh he had a legit map bc he was trying to find his building and a senior actually stopped and asked him if he was lost and helped him like he looked that helpless and sometimes he flashbacks to that moment randomly and it’ll probably haunt him for the rest of his life

since a lot of people are requesting college AUs i’m thinking of maybe doing a more extended version for each member later on!
