United passenger David Dao is getting an undisclosed settlement after dragging incident

Meanwhile, United Airlines flights are noticeably cheaper now, for some reason

  • According to Scott Keyes, founder of the website Scott’s Cheap Flights, United Airlines is offering flights for much less than their usual value.
  • “Since the incident on United 3411, there’s been a noticeable drop in United’s fares,” Keyes told Travel and Leisure on Wednesday, adding “I’m not privy to United’s internal numbers, but whatever drop in bookings they were seeing must have scared them enough to slash prices.” Read more (4/27/17)
[MAGAZINE INTERVIEW] 170420 WINNER for HIGH CUT May Issue

WINNER’s beginning was different from the start as they were born through a reality program, “WIN: Who Is Next”. In the first week of their debut, they won three #1 crowns on music shows with their title track “Empty” and swept up all the rookie awards that year. The public fixed their eyes on the monster rookie that had skills, visuals, and the star quality and WINNER always put out results that met expectations. But a long hiatus followed which was unprecedented for a rookie group. A sudden piece of news that fans received during the hiatus was not about their comeback but about a member leaving the group. They became 4 members from 5 and they changed the formation of their choreographies and they adjusted the vocalist parts and they had to work hard to fill up the one empty spot. The result of this came in the form of their single album “FATE NUMBER FOR”, which was released on April 4th, 1 year and 2 months after their previous comeback. The moment the album was released, it recorded first place on iTunes Charts in 21 different countries and was featured in Apple Music’s “Best of the Week”. The fact that the public’s response to “REALLY REALLY” and “FOOL”, which are total opposites of each other, are addicting is just a bonus. WINNER is at their peak.

KANG SEUNGYOON

The response for “REALLY REALLY” is very hot. Do you feel how popular it is?

I’ve been told by people but I can’t really feel it myself. Just like it has always been, we just perform onstage and meet our fans and move according to our schedules.

During WINNER’s hiatus, with Nam Taehyun’s leave, the group became 4 from the original 5. Didn’t you feel like your responsibility as the leader was heavier with this comeback?

Of course I felt responsible. But I didn’t think things like, “I need to lead WINNER better so we can go to a higher place.” (laughs) I felt like I needed to do things instead of staying still.

I heard that you weren’t able to properly rest or travel for leisure during the hiatus.

Yes. When I didn’t have plans on making music, I was at home. Home and company. That was it. It was because I didn’t want to just rest. Even when I didn’t have any songs to work on, I went to the company. I felt more comfortable staying at the company, eating with my composer hyungs, and talking to them.

I heard you made “REALLY REALLY” and “FOOL” very quickly.

Composing for both songs came easy to me. For “REALLY REALLY”, I finished composing the melody and writing the lyrics while lying in bed in 4 hours. But I couldn’t figure out the best melody progression for the bridge part so I asked Mino to help me.

As a member who composed the songs, which member do you want to praise the most?

Jinwoo-hyung. I don’t force directions to the rappers. They have always done well with their individual styles and they know how to show off their own colors. But I was really surprised at how much Jinwoo-hyung’s singing improved while recording for this single album. The time it took to record decreased greatly. It took 30 minutes when it usually takes 2 hours.

Jinwoo told me earlier that the songs suited him so well that he was very comfortable with them.

Whenever I make WINNER songs, I compose so that it suits the members. It’s only possible since I’ve known them for almost 10 years now, ever since we were trainees. This means I probably can’t make songs for other singers.

I feel like you received a lot of stress to achieve such good results.

I feel like I don’t get stressed much but my body keeps hurting in places. (laughs) I still get migraines.

How do you relieve stress?

These days I reform clothes with Mino as a hobby. I usually relieve stress by going outside and walking under the sunlight. But I need to wear a face mask and a hoodie so people don’t recognize me. I wear black clothes to not draw attention to myself at night. (laughs)

How do you reform clothes?

I just fold them and stick them together and sew things together and cut things. I’m bad at sewing. When I have things I need to sew, I put them aside and when my mother comes to Seoul, I make her do it… (laughs) She enjoys it though! I’m usually really blunt around her so when I ask her to do things like this for me she thinks we’re playing together.

In the end, all the clothes you’re reforming are made by your mother.

No, that’s not it. I design the clothes and my mother sews the clothes. Designers don’t sew clothes themselves. Their assistants do it. (laughs)

You’re receiving good results after a long hiatus. Is there something you want to challenge yourself in in the future?

I want to hear people say, “This is what WINNER-like music is” even when we make music we want to make and not bother with trends. To make that happen, we need to become more known and further develop our careers. I think it’s possible with time. Personally, once WINNER becomes properly stabilized as a group, I want to release a solo album but I want to include all genres of music into that one album. When people think about the music Kang Seungyoon makes, they assume it’s only folk or rock music. I want to break that preconceived notion and put in dance, hip-hop, R&B, and even trot songs into the album. I’m just sharing my thoughts. (laughs)

SONG MINO

You’ve succeeded in the variety scene. You received your nickname “Song Dumb” through “New Journey to the West” and you’ve become famous enough among the older generation that they ask for your autograph. Was it your wish to appear on a variety show?

Yes, I wanted to. Other than music shows, we weren’t able to have complete promotions and as time passed, the image of the group WINNER solidified into being a group that is hard to approach and classy. (laughs) I don’t mind that kind of image and vibe but I wanted us to promote more and become more known. In that timing, I received the offer from “New Journey to the West” and I had lots of fun filming it but I didn’t expect to be shown like that… (laughs)

You’re honestly worried as a rapper, right?

At first I was worried that my image would cover my music activities. But when I thought about it, what was shown on TV is my true self and it’s separate from the music I make so there is no need to forcefully hide myself. I’ll show myself as I am and I can show my music as it is.

In a separate interview you said that you worked hard to show rapping that overflows with energy without covering the melody. Maybe because of this I feel like your vocalization changed.

My vocalization changed during “Show Me The Money”. It’s actually a change that all singers and rappers go through. It’s how we find the voice we’re most comfortable with. When I first started rapping, I made up a voice and rapped in that voice. When I listen to the songs I made when I was in high school, my voice sounds like I swallowed stones. (laughs) Back then, I thought that was cool. But gradually, I’m finding the voice I’m comfortable with.

When you promote as WINNER, rapping is a component that makes up the vibe of the song. You must want to work on your own music since you don’t rap as much compared to when you promote individually.

Yes. The rapping I do as WINNER is one part of the song so the importance lies in the overall concept. But my rap style is made up of word plays and I pour in a lot of fun elements and enjoy my music so when I get the opportunity to work on my solo music, I’m going to do whatever I want. I want to go hard in my rapping.

Do you perhaps remember the first rap you made?

I don’t remember the lyrics but I remember what happened. The first ever music I made was when I was in my 6th year of elementary school. I went to my friend’s house and wrote my first lyrics and recorded myself on a cassette tape with my friend. I didn’t know anything when I was writing those lyrics. I just scribbled something and said, “Hey, but let’s still record it” and I recorded it on a cassette tape. I wonder where that cassette tape is now.

Out of all the raps you’ve made, which one gave you the hardest time?

The song that I had the hardest time making was “Shoot” for “Infinite Challenge: Great Legacy”. The overall concept was already set in place. The larger theme was history and the smaller theme was General Lee Soonshin. And the project was about becoming aware by looking back into the past and looking at the present. It was difficult to express myself within a fixed boundary. Fortunately, the end result turned out well.

You’ve had the name WINNER for 4 years now. Is there a time when you think you have some spare time now?

I don’t think we’re at that level yet. But the chemistry between us members is really good. We’ve been living together for a long time now so I think we know pretty much everything about each other. I know what my members are thinking just by looking at their faces. The member who is in the best mood today is… Seunghoon-hyung. That hyung has severe mood swings but I think he’s pretty happy today. (laughs)

Is there a specific key point you want listeners to focus on for “REALLY REALLY”?

Um… What a difficult question. (Song Mino mulled over the question for a long time. Lee Seunghoon, who had finished earlier came and suggested, “Didn’t you say you worked hard to change your tone? Tell her about that.”) The change in my tone can just be heard. I don’t need to specifically tell that to people… I just want people to listen to it comfortably. Comfortably. (laughs)

LEE SEUNGHOON

I heard CEO Yang praised you for making the choreography for “FOOL” in 5 hours.

I was able to make it quickly because I thought about the flow of movements. “FOOL” didn’t need complicated dancing. It’s a song that is close to the ballad genre so it wasn’t necessary to dance powerfully and put in a key point dance. The first thing I thought about was how I could make us look cool.

I’m curious about your process in making choreographies.

First, I close my eyes while listening to the song and draw a picture in my head. I imagine an overall picture while thinking about the mood of the performance that people would find cool watching us. After I imagine that, I make a large outline of how the members should move. After that, I make the detailed dance movements. “FOOL” didn’t need lots of movements but the formation had to change because we became 4 members from 5.

You’ve started promoting after a long hiatus. I heard you thought a lot about what kind of fanservice you would do for the fans.

The ground-breaking invention of Naver V App is helping many people other than ourselves, I think. I really want to tell Naver that I love them. (laughs) I’ve always liked making and planning ideas and content. I’ve had interest in making videos from when I was young. So I have fun and I like communicating with our fans through V App.

I feel like you’ve been overflowing with ideas from when you were on “K-Pop Star”. I guess you’re not nicknamed “Deputy Lee of YG Planning Team” for nothing.

I enjoy producing ideas. When I get told they’re fun, I get really excited. Usually, other artists go to the YG office building to work out or go to the recording studio on the 3rd floor and they don’t really go to where the staff members work. But I always go to those staff members’ offices. So when they see me on TV, they say that I look unfamiliar and that it feels strange. They say things like, “Why is our Deputy who’s always scruffy appearing on TV like that”. (laughs)

You have good fashion sense. You’ve collaborated with fashion brands too.

Let me just tell you that good-looking people like Jinwoo-hyung never get interested in fashion. That’s because they look good no matter what they wear. (laughs) I enjoyed going around used-goods markets and looking for clothes with my friends. Since I debuted and am earning money, I can buy expensive clothes now, right? I used to not have money so I couldn’t buy expensive clothes but I suddenly realised that the ultimate end to fashion was to personally create a style of clothes I like. So later on, when I have the opportunity, I want to create my own clothing brand, like Tyler, the Creator who made “Golf Wang”.

You’re a jack-of-all-trades. I was surprised when I saw your poem called “Flower Boat” that you wrote for your fans.

I just imitated something like a poem. I feel like my fans like it so much because what I feel for my fans can be felt from that poem. I’m not good at writing and I’m not talented.

What are you talking about? Your fans say that the lyrics you write are the best parts of the songs. Were you proud when you listened to the completed recordings of the new songs?

Yes, I liked them. Seungyoon is the type to listen to the music he makes a thousand times before the release but I don’t listen to our songs often. I say things like, “Why listen to them already when we’re going to keep listening to them after they’re released?” (laughs) But I was satisfied. I worked hard to make a rap that middle school girls could imitate easily.

How did you do that?

I made sure my enunciation wasn’t hard to imitate and the speed wasn’t too fast. And most importantly, I put in many breaks between the beats where you can rest. I imagined how people would sing and rap along. (laughs)

KIM JINWOO

You’re famous among your fans for being very diligent. What kind of effort did you put in for this single album?

I kept receiving lessons while we recorded. I also learned contemporary dancing and thanks to that I became very confident. I used to sing quietly when we recorded but now I actively try singing this way and that. My singing hasn’t changed but my attitude has.

As the group became 4 members, your singing parts increased too. Were you not burdened?

I just recorded the songs comfortably. When Seungyoon makes a song, he thinks about our tones and the rappers’ tendencies. We record many songs and there are times when there are good results and there are times when there are bad results but when Seungyoon is the one who made the song, I never struggle. I didn’t put in any extra effort. I don’t need to because he makes songs that suit me perfectly.

When were you most excited while recording the songs?

I was just happy the entire time we were recording. I feel like learning how to physically express myself in a given situation through contemporary dancing made me change a lot internally. If I have the time, I want to continue learning contemporary dance.

Fans know that you’re a homebody. Do you still always stay home?

I don’t spend my spare time outdoors. I watch TV at home or I lie in bed and play with my phone. I used to play lots of phone games but I’ve stopped that now. Playing so many phone games made me spend too much money. (laughs) I stopped because I realised that if I kept it up, I would go broke. (laughs)

You must’ve watched a lot of TV during the hiatus.

I’ve watched many dramas recently. I especially enjoyed watching “Defendant”.

Who is your favorite actor?

Kimura Takuya. I love it when people tell me I look like how Kimura Takuya looked like when he was young. (laughs)

Who is your favorite Korean actor?

Jisung-sunbaenim who acted in “Defendant”. Did you watch that drama? You didn’t? You really should. I really love Choi Jinsil-sunbaenim. I didn’t know that I would fall in love with another actor besides her. Jisung-sunbaenim acted his character who would never let go of his deep sadness even in a happy situation and… Wow… Seriously…

You’ve acted in a webdrama before, right? I can feel that you’re greedy for acting.

Yes, I’m always interested in acting. I’ve acted in a couple of webdramas but I think they didn’t really suit me. I want to try acting a deep and heavy character instead of a light character. Of course, I am still very lacking.

But you’re the icon of effort. All the other members picked you as the member who improved the most.

Not just me, all of us worked really hard in making this single album. If you ask me what people should focus on when listening to our song, I want to say “all of it”. There is really no part that didn’t require hard work.

Then when is the best timing to listen to “REALLY REALLY”?

When you’re in a flirting relationship with someone. Or at the beginning of a romantic relationship, when the love is fresh. If I were to compare that feeling to a season, it would be Spring, which is right now.

When do you think Spring will start in your love life? I heard what your ideal type is on the radio. You said that you want to date someone who looks like you, right? A women with big eyes, a slender face, and is 165cm tall. Do these characteristics still hold?

Firstly, I don’t mind what kind of hairstyle she has now. But I would like it if she is shorter than me. Other than that, the general descriptions haven’t changed. But right now I will concentrate on WINNER promotions. (laughs)

It is an early example of neoclassicism, with a façade modeled on the Pantheon in Rome, surmounted by a dome that owes some of its character to Bramante’s “Tempietto”. Located in the 5th arrondissement on the Montagne Sainte-Geneviève, the Panthéon looks out over all of Paris. Designer Jacques-Germain Soufflot had the intention of combining the lightness and brightness of the gothic cathedral with classical principles, but its role as a mausoleum required the great Gothic windows to be blocked. wiki

This is Paris!

anonymous asked:

Ignis and his s/o having sex in a tent while the others are sleeping?

My gosh nonnie you know how to make me blush. I feel like I need a cold shower after writing this! 😂 Eh but I love it.

Heavy NSFW BELOW!

When you get Ignis going… well, RIP you. 

The heavy snores of your camp mates reverberated in your skull, causing you to grit your teeth. It was fine for all of them, they were fast asleep within minutes of their heads hitting their pillows. You on the other hand, were finding it rather difficult to join them in the land of nod. It didn’t help that you were so cold. The tent and your sleeping bag seemed to be doing nothing to keep out the chill of the night air, and you just couldn’t get comfortable enough to drift off.

Huffing and sighing, you rolled over in your sleeping bag, and came face to face with your boyfriend Iggy. Surprisingly, his eyes were open.

Probably heard me sighing my head off. You thought guiltily, but all the negativity disappeared as the tawny haired man smiled warmly at you. That smile just melted your heart.

“Having trouble sleeping?” He whispered, reaching a hand out of his sleeping back to gently push your hair out of your face. You leaned into his touch automatically, feeling your irritation just… dissolve away…

“How could you tell?”

“You seem to be sighing and groaning an awful lot.” He teased, but hey he was right.

“I just can’t get to sleep. It’s alright for this lot, out like lights the lot of them. I’m pretty sure Noctis only needs to look at his pillow and he’s gone.”

A snort came from said sleepy boy, the only thing signalling that he was still alive. Man, he slept like a stone once he was out. You had all also had a tiring day, fighting quite a few beasts for food rations so everyone was shattered come night time. But you still hadn’t managed to sleep a wink.

“And it doesn’t help that I’m freezing.” You hissed, clutching your sleeping bag even closer.

“Well, I think I have a solution for that.” Iggy whispered, unzipping his own sleeping bag and holding it out to you. You could feel his body heat radiating off him, and in an instant without even thinking about it, you were out of your sleeping bag and curled up in his in no time. Letting out a sigh of contentment, you snuggled up to your boyfriend, warming up instantly. Your head fit perfectly in the crook of his neck, your legs entwined with his and his strong arms wrapped around you protectively.

“Perfect.” You whispered in satisfaction.

“I’m extremely inclined to agree.” Ignis uttered, and you could feel the smile on his lips as he pressed a kiss to your forehead, pulling you closer to him. You wanted to kiss him back, but snuggled up as you were there was no way you could get to his lips. So you settled for kissing his throat, the easiest place you could get to. As your lips made contact with the hollow of his throat, his leg gave a slight twitch.

Hmm, that’s odd…

Curious, you kissed him again, opening your mouth to cover slightly more skin. You heard a sharp intake of breath as his hand resting on your arm tightened its grip slightly. Biting your lip to keep from smiling, you realised that you’d found one of Ignis’ sweet spots. You loved his reactions, and you wanted to see what else you could make him do… Cautiously, you pressed your lips to the same spot once more, but this time you let the tip of your tongue run over his skin ever so gently…

“[N-name]!” He whispered harshly, his fingers leaving imprints in your skin.

She was driving him crazy, in under five minutes she’s found a sweet spot that when she kissed, sent shivers straight up his spine. And gods above when she used her tongue

“Yes?” Came her reply, innocently enough.

She cannot be serious. She must know what she’s doing to me.

“What are you doing?” He was embarrassed to hear that his voice sounded strained.

“I’m just kissing you.” She whispered back, ever so sweetly, as once more she kissed and nipped at that spot…

You could feel Iggy’s jaw tighten, and a feeling of euphoria washed over you.

I’m making him do this. His harsh breaths and sharp gasps were like music to your ears.

“Come off it [Name], you know exactly what you’re doing to me.”

“Hmmm… no, I don’t think I do…”

He had to stop himself from groaning in frustration. If they had been alone right now, he’d have put an end to this teasing in a way that had her biting her lip from pleasure. But they weren’t alone. They had three other people sleeping around them in a tiny tent.

Oh what you do to me [Name]…

But even as he thought this, Ignis couldn’t deny the want that surged through him in powerful waves. She was such a tease, but she was his tease… and by the gods did he want to take her right now.

Damn it Ignis, you need to stop. He willed himself to think rationally. It wasn’t gentlemanly of him to want such things right now, and he had to stop before she noticed-

“Oh, well I think I have an idea now.” She almost giggled, and Ignis couldn’t stop the blush from entering his cheeks even if he tried. As close as they were, it was almost impossible to hide his growing arousal. All his composure had gone out the window, all at the mere thought of her.

“I…I’m sorry.” He stuttered, feeling mortified at his lack of self-control. That was, until she pushed herself against his body, her hands sliding around his waist.

“Don’t be…” She shuffled in the sleeping bag until they were finally eye to eye. The look in her eyes had him gulping. It reflected his wants perfectly.

“[Name]… we shouldn’t, not right now…” Credit to the man, he tried to stop himself, he really did. But his protest was feeble and weak, and you knew he wanted you bad.

“Shouldn’t… but we could.” You bit your lip, smiling cheekily at your suggestion. The one gesture disarmed Ignis completely, he just found you so irresistible.

It took him all of about three seconds to answer.

Fuck it.” He hissed and brought his lips down to yours in one swift movement. Your body sang at the contact, your heart racing at what you agreed to do. One hand wound itself in your hair, the other skimmed down your stomach, over your waist to rest on your lower back as he pulled you against him in one sharp move.

You groaned softly against his mouth, two pieces of flimsy fabric the only thing stopping you from fully feeling his arousal. His lips were rough against yours, needy as he ran his tongue over your bottom lip.

He wanted her, needed her.

This is what you do to me.

You gasped as he gently tugged at your bottom lip, which caused him to pull back slightly. It reminded you of where you were, the heavy breathing of the fast-asleep boys suddenly becoming apparent.

“Shhhh, kitten.” He hushed you quietly, drifting his fingertips down your jawline lovingly. “As much as I love to hear you, you must be quiet.” His usual bright, emerald eyes were dark, and hooded with want. It made you gulp. All you could do was nod in reply.

“Good girl.” And with that his lips were at your throat, eager to repay your favour. He kissed down your jawline, your neck right down to your collar bone, and leisurely travelled back up, his tongue swirling across your skin teasingly every now and then.

Your fingers curled in his hair as he kissed you, struggling to stay quiet. Ignis loved the feel of your little fingers tugging at his hair, scratching against his scalp. He could feel your chest rise and fall with each pant, urging him on, when an idea struck him.

Leaving one last kiss at the base of your throat, Ignis pulled away from you, elated to see the disappointment in your eyes.

“Roll over.” He whispered to you, but you did as he asked immediately, desperate to feel his touch again. His hand snaked around your waist and pulled you taught against his body, your back pressed against is chest. His lips were against your ear, which he gave a quick kiss before whispering into.

“Now, you have to stay quiet.” He told you again, and before you could answer his hand skimmed across your lower stomach, his fingertips brushing ever so lightly against the very sensitive skin. You squirmed underneath his palm, earning a low chuckle.

“Hard, isn’t it?” You can hear the smirk in his voice, and at once you knew this was going to be payback for earlier. His fingers played with the waistband of your underwear, so close but just not enough.

Ignis…” You breathed, frustrated at his teasing touches.

Well, two could play at that game.

You pushed back into Ignis, your ass rubbing against his erection to which you heard him gasp. You smiled into the darkness, happy to have caused such a reaction.

Suddenly a loud crinkling sound could be heard as one of the boys rolled over in their sleeping bag. You and Ignis froze, not daring to move a muscle. But nothing happened, and you relaxed again, hearing the soft breathing return to the sleeper.

“That was close.” You whispered, your heart racing.

“Indeed.” Ignis agreed, but fluttered his fingers just underneath the elastic of your panties.

It took all you had not to gasp, but your hips flexed forward in an automatic reaction, seeking the contact you’d been dying for.

“No fair.” You uttered at his dirty tack ticks, but Ignis just grinned. He wasn’t through with you yet.

“Remember kitten, quiet.” He whispered in your ear again, and finally his fingers dipped under the flimsy fabric and came into contact with your wet warmth. You bit down hard on your bottom lip, anything to stop the moans you were dying to make as his fingers worked quickly over your most sensitive spot. Your hips rocked into his hand, but Ignis warned you to be quiet again so you stopped. But man, it felt good.

“You are so adorable.” He uttered, his voice low and husky. But you daren’t open your mouth to answer, in case you moaned something loud enough to wake even Noctis.

Thank the gods above that they are heavy sleepers.

Soon you felt a build-up in your lower stomach, and you knew you were going to let go soon.

Ignis.” You dared to warn him and he understood, lifting his free hand to your mouth so you could bite around his fingers as you came as quietly as you could. Ignis finally withdrew his fingers from your underwear and kissed your cheek, breathing slightly heavily himself.

“Very quiet, well done.” He whispered teasingly, smiling into the crook of your neck as he pulled you close for a tight hug. Your heart pounded underneath the palm of his hand as you came down from cloud nine, the sounds of the sleeping boys once again sounding loud in your ears as you returned to earth. Carefully you rolled over once more, back to facing your boyfriend who welcomed you with a loving smile and a gentle, chaste kiss.

“That’s not it, is it?” You asked, smiling coyly. This guy was actually just going to satisfy you and ignore his own needs? No way, not on your watch.

“What do you mean?” He asked, confused. His fingers were now leisurely trailing up and down your back, calming and comforting.

“Ignis, I want you. Like, now.” You told him, watching with slight amusement as his eyes went wide with the realisation.

“Are you sure?” He uttered.

Yes.” Your hands went to remove him of his underwear hastily, leaving no time for him to overthink it. He stifled a moan as you finally freed his erection, and he hurried to rid you of your underwear too. There wasn’t a fibre of his being that could resist her now. As quietly as he could, he rolled on top of her, leaning on his elbows and looking down into her [e/c] eyes in wonder and amusement.

Only she could get me to do something like this.

“Sure?” He whispered again to make sure, but you just nodded and looped your arms around his neck. Spurred on by the look in your eyes, he aligned himself and slowly pushed his hips forward into you, filling you easily. His breathing was ragged and he couldn’t stop the moan escaping his lips. It was your turn to shush him.

“Shhh Iggy!” You whispered, but wrapped your legs around him as best you could in the confines of the sleeping bag.

“I apologise…” He whispered into your ear. “But you feel so fucking good.”

It was so unlike Ignis to swear, but you loved it. It was like only you could make him come undone like this.

Slowly he began to rock his hips, thrusting into you with ease, picking up the speed when he could no longer help himself. His head dropped to your neck, biting into your flesh to stop the groans of satisfaction he knew would surely wake the others.

“Mmm, just like that.” You encouraged him, once again tugging at his hair as he slid in and out of you with ease.

Suddenly you heard a sound.

“Shhh shh!” You gasped, and Ignis stopped at once, both of you freezing once again. But when nothing happened, you couldn’t help but giggle.

“I swear to the gods…” Ignis groaned, but continued to rock his hips desperately into yours. He’d been craving you for a while now, but hadn’t said anything due to the time not being right in his eyes. It hardly was right now, but you made him just not care about those things as much, he was just focused on how much he wanted and needed you right now.

“[Name], I… I can’t last much longer.” He stuttered, panting in your ear. You were both probably being louder than you should right now, but neither of you could care, wrapped in your own little bubble of pleasure.

“Do it.” You gasped, also feeling the familiar coil of pressure.

Ignis thrusts became erratic and desperate, and at last he buried his face in your neck and moaned as he came, riding out his orgasm. You let go around him, pushed over the edge by his last few thrusts.

Ignis collapsed on top of you, his chest rising and falling, his breathing heavy. You were both sweaty now – at least you were no longer cold. As you lay there together, catching your breath and slowing your heart, the silence in the tent sounded deafening.

I can’t believe we just did that… You marvelled at your risky behaviour. The fact that you got Ignis to join in was a major feat in itself. It was so worth it.

Finally, Ignis slowly pulled out of you and laid down by your side, pulling you in close for a hug, back to where you were before it started. He shook his head in bewilderment.

“What?” You asked, and he smiled and shook his head again.

“Only you could get me worked up enough to do something like that.” He chuckled, running a hand through your hair lovingly.

You smiled to yourself, pleased. And as the soft breathing and snoring continued around you, you knew in an instant you’d want to do it again if ever the mood took you.

“It was so good though.” You giggled into his chest.

“Indeed, you were divine. But now my love, you should sleep.”

And just like that, wrapped safely in his arms and feeling sleepier than you had all night, you shut your eyes and drifted away.
