Summary: Bookstores have always lured you in with the promise of the quiet, the serene, and, most recently, him. Pairing: Jimin | Reader Genre: Fluff Word Count: 2,644 Author’s Note: This story was on one of my old Tumblr writing accounts that I just deleted, but it was one of my favorite stories and didn’t want it to collect dust in my drive.
You’ve always had an endless fascination with books and novels of various different shapes, sizes, and lengths. The way someone could paint an entirely different world with the mixture of just 26 letters, whisk the mind away from reality, stir emotions inside someone—emotions of laughter or sadness or one of complete contentment. The influence a simple novel could have on a person’s viewpoint has always fascinated you.
During your younger years, you would find yourself trekking to the nearest bookstore, if only to simply run your fingers along the spines of all the latest releases. You would open a random novel, just to skim the first sentence, allowing the words of a complete stranger to fill you with familiarity.
Not much has changed in the years following your childhood. Something about corner bookstores have always lured you with the promise of peace and quiet, an escape from the harsh reality you occupied yourself with. You constantly looked forward to the days you could run away and hide within the shelves of the shop, no matter rain or shine, sleet or snow, 30 pages of homework to get done during the night, you always made an effort to visit at least once or twice a week as soon as you entered college.
Today is no exception to the rule. With midterms rapidly approaching, you’re already drowning in papers, projects, and upcoming tests, the stress practically eating you alive. But still, instead of returning to your apartment, you find yourself turning down the familiar sidewalk in the opposite direction. The rain overhead is steadily pouring down today, serving as little warning bells that perhaps making the trip to the bookstore might not be the best option.
Judging from the gray clouds, it’s clear that the weather has other plans for the remainder of the day—the lightning that suddenly shoots across the sky is a clear indication of that—but you find yourself not minding much. The heels of your boots clash gently against the sidewalk, your hair curling slightly as the water comes in contact with it, but all those worries and annoyances dissipate off your skin like steam as the familiar shop comes into view. With the lights on inside, the place looks like a beacon of hope, allowing the smile to spread itself across your face as you quicken your pace to shoulder open the door.
The bell rings overhead as you gently shut the door close, running your hand through your hair quickly to rid some of the water trapped in your locks. After exchanging a smile with the familiar cashier at the counter, you make your way deeper in the store. Like usual, there isn’t anything in particular you’re seeking, but just being surrounded by text, aisles and aisles of hardcovers and paperbacks fills you with comfort.
You’re just starting the turn into contemporary novels, when one particular black, hardcover spine catches your attention, causing you to stop dead in your tracks, eyes widening with recognition as you distinctly remember this particular novel being one of the very few you’ve wanted in your own personal collection of books: John Green’s Looking For Alaska.
Your lips curl up into a smile, momentarily unfazed by the fact that the book had been placed on the highest shelf, towering a few inches above you, even as you stand on your tippy toes, even as your fingers barely manage to graze the book you want. It takes five times before you plant both feet firmly back on the ground with a gentle huff, considering the next movement to grab the book.
You’re just about to consider getting a running start between the two shelves, before a slightly amused voice cuts in through your concentration: “Need some help?”
A/N: Based on anon request: What if reader gets injured or sick in some way and Bones has to treat them but he’s mad that they’re hurt (because he hates to see them hurt) and he’s kind of rude about it? And reader is anxious and doesn’t like doctors/being yelled at and he goes to apologize after but reader isn’t ready to accept and says they need some time to think about it?? Surprisingly not as angsty as I originally intended, but I hope you still enjoy it!!
“Told you so,” Bones gloated, running a dermal regenerator over the burns of your hand.
“I wouldn't’ve gotten hurt if Keenser could’ve held his sneeze two more goddamn minutes,” you grumbled. “‘It’s the last time you’ll see me for a week. Promise.”
do you have any good star trek novel recommendations? (tos please!!)
Yes! I do! I’ve been meaning to make a post about this for…so long, whoops, but I’ll answer this ask instead! (might still make the post someday, idk tbh. I probably should though because since I have so many Trek books I haven’t read yet, I might like more enough to rec them, haha.) Okay, anyway… (By TOS I assume you mean the original Enterprise crew, I hope it’s okay that not all of these actually take place during TOS, aka the five year mission.)
Sarek by A. C. Crispin You might have seen me mention this one the other day on my blog; I really love it. It takes place post TUC, Amanda is dying and Sarek is uncovering a plot that’s way bigger than anyone realizes at first… Also there’s some stuff about Jim’s nephew Peter (from the episode with the farting flying pancake aliens? lol.) and yeah, it’s a great read. All the parts with Sarek and Amanda are lovely and sad and the plot is interesting and it’s just all around enjoyable.Definitely recommend.
Collision Course by William Shatner This is the other one I mentioned on my blog already, and this one is probably my favorite Trek novel. Spock is nineteen and Jim is seventeen when they first meet, and they’re both too smart for their own good and get into trouble and…well, all the things you expect from Jim and Spock. It was originally supposed to be the first in a series, but for various reasons, there probably won’t be any more (CRIES) but this one is so good. And it doesn’t end on a cliffhanger so it’s okay. I especially enjoyed tbh how Bill appreciates what an effect Tarsus would have had on Jim (this is only three years later, after all) and it’s still very visible on lil’ Jim. Not a spoiler, bc a reference is made to Tarsus on…literally the very first page. Lol. Anyway, this one is really fun and sometimes sad (bc Tarsus) and just really great! Also, at least one of the plot twists genuinely surprised me, which is rare… I normally see them coming a mile off in Trek novels. ;) (Which doesn’t usually take away from my enjoyment, tbh!) But I really appreciate when they can surprise me.
Star Trek: The Motion Picture (novelization) by Gene Roddenberry You knew this was coming. This is an absolute must read if you’re a Spirk fan, tbh. I’m not all the way through with it so far, about halfway done, but I can tell you it’s a much better way of telling the story of TMP than TMP. Lol. The movie has this simple feeling and Jim rushing to Spock on the bridge and saying his name like a prayer and other things, but it also has all those dreadful special effect sequences. And the novel has its own gay to offer. I don’t necessarily agree with the way Gene wrote Jim (in fact, it’s been forever since I picked it up but I distinctly remember being bothered by it), but…yeah, at least borrow a copy from someone and witness the gay parts for yourself, haha.
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (novelization) by Vonda McIntyre I’m going to go ahead and say right now that if you’re going to read the novelizations, go for the ones by Ms. (Mrs? idk) McIntyre. She wrote 2, 3, and 4. I haven’t read 3 yet, but I have read 2 and 4 and I like that she actually adds in scenes and stuff that weren’t in the movies. It makes me feel like I’m actually getting something additional for my time even though I’m reading a novelization of a movie I’ve already seen. I like this one, because there was quite a bit that wasn’t in the movie (I have a hunch the extra scenes, at least some of them, might be based on the script? because the scene with Sulu’s great….something or other grandfather as a child meeting Sulu is in the book, and I know they tried to put that in the movie but never managed to. anyway.) But yeah, there’s actual stuff in there that’s not in the movie! that’s the way it should be. Also…she ships Saavik/David pretty clearly. :P Like I said, haven’t read TSS novel yet, but I know she was working it into 2, and it’s mentioned in 4 as a thing. Anyway…good stuff! This is the one where the whole “Vulcans get drunk on chocolate” thing comes from btw :))) (Avoid the novelizations by JM Dillard! Avoid!!! I’ve read them and they’re not good.) (Oh and pretty much everything I’ve read by Vonda McIntyre I’ve enjoyed, she’s a good Trek writer.)
Dwellers In The Crucible by Margaret Wander Bonnano Margaret Bonnano is another writer I just generally recommend bc I like all the stuff by her that I’ve read, too. Anyway… okay so let me say that this book’s main characters are not Jim and Spock. I know, I know. But wait!! It’s so worth a read!! Jim and Spock are in it, not much, but when they are they’re literally so married and explicitly confirmed to be t’hy’la… :)) it’s great. okay anyway. The main characters are a human named Cleante and a Vulcan named T’Shael. They are ladies. THEY ARE GAY AF. OKAY. THAT ALONE MAKES IT WORTH A READ. it’s so glorious.I mean the book only says they’re friends but…in the same way Jim and Spock are friends in canon. they’re super freaking gay. and also there are like a thousand incredibly obvious parallels between our human and vulcan lady and Jim and Spock. it’s fun. also Sulu goes undercover as a Romulan. :D yeah, just…read it. it’s great. (it made me angry at one point. I’m still angry. but I recommend it.)
Ishmael by Barbara Hambly This one was, for me at least, just a genuinely good read. I really enjoyed the plot. So…Spock goes back in time to 1867, not willingly I don’t think. And he gets amnesia. So right there are two tropes I ADORE (time travel and amnesia, I don’t care, I LOVE THEM.) He lands in North America, in Seattle if I remember correctly. And that’s the plot pretty much. Haha…okay, there’s a Klingon plot, the Enterprise crew searching for Spock, Spock trying to adapt and hide he’s an alien while bonding with the members of the community he lands in. Also Jim and Spock’s reunion is a bit gay. (Warning for spoilers if you click that? it’s pictures of when they find him near the end, so. Yeah.) I just really enjoyed the book in itself, the plot and everything. Fun!
Enterprise: The First Adventure by Vonda McIntyre In light of the tv series called Enterprise, the title of this one might be a little confusing… But it’s most definitely TOS and has nothing to do with Enterprise, haha. The premise is that it’s the first voyage of the Enterprise with Jim as the captain. And the mission is…to transport a theater troupe. It’s ridiculous and so silly, I know, but it’s really fun. There’s a winged horse, a really un-Vulcan Vulcan (I think he’s Spock’s cousin? I don’t really remember tbh), Spock heckling the theater troop, Uhura being a good friend to Janice…that’s all I remember off the top of my head, but I remember really enjoying it when I read it!
Unspoken Truth by Margaret Wander Bonanno Remember what I said about those two writers? Lol. Okay so this is a Saavik-centric book. I really love Saavik, okay? So, as you might know, Saavik is half Vulcan, half Romulan. Well in this book (actually, in a bunch of books, by at least three different writers, it seems to be her accepted backstory in the novels) she was the result of a terrible experiment by Romulans, and when it didn’t work out, she and a bunch of other children were abandoned on a planet called Hellguard, and…some really horrible things happen. Anyway, Spock saves her, mentors her, and Amanda and Sarek basically adopt her (literally, she calls them mother and father, IT’S MY FAVE), well anyway, years later, either after or during TVH, she learns things are happening to the survivors of Hellguard…and the story goes from there. This was really good! Intense tbh. I loved it, but then, I love Saavik. If you don’t like her… But if you do, you’ll enjoy this one!!!!
Doctor’s Orders by Diane Duane Diane Duane is another must read author. All her books are excellent. In all honestly, I don’t remember too much about the plot of this one, but I know I liked it! Dr. McCoy is like “you can’t make me take command on the bridge” and Jim is like “uh actually I CAN” so he does and of course on McCoy’s very first day watching over the bridge Jim goes AWOL and shit starts going down. Poor Bones. Also, there’s some crazy aliens in this one, but they’re interesting!
The Vulcan Academy Murders by Jean Lorrah This one has such misleading cover art, lmaooo. At least, the version I have. There might be others… Anyway. Patients at a hospital on Vulcan keep dying and stuff, and then Amanda is in trouble. Lots of Sarek and Spock and Jim and Bones interaction. It’s a good one. (It’s been soo long since I read this one, too, sorry. But again, I know I enjoyed it!)
Uhura’s Song by Janet Hagan I love the alien species in this one. They’re like giant cats, and I love cats. When I read it, I got really into the planet and the species and their culture. The plot is that an old friend of Uhura’s is from this planet, and they “exchanged songs”…songs are a big deal in their culture. Anyway, there’s a plague threatening everyone on the planet and humans, too, and they think a song might hold the key to curing the disease, so they all go down on the planet to try and find it.
Strangers From The Sky by Margaret Wander Bonanno The plot to this one is…kind of hard to describe. Okay. So the parts with Jim and Spock go back and forth in time, part of the time being like, post-all the movies (I think) where they’re old friends (and really married, they’re just like. Margaret Bonanno has this way of inserting this really easy, casual intimacy they have with each other, and calling it friendship when OBVIOUSLY they’re married af, but either way I love it) and part of the time being very early on when Jim hasn’t been in command for long and he and Spock didn’t care much for each other (I mean personally I think they liked each other quite well from the start, but I’ll let it go, lol)… And then there’s a book. In the book. That everyone is reading and obsessed with and Jim starts reading it… It sounds weird, I know, but the book in the book is the story of the first time Vulcans came in contact with humans, long before the OFFICIAL first contact, it was when Vulcans crash landed on Earth and were discovered by some humans… I fucking love Vulcans, so that is obviously a great point of interest for me. Lol. Anyway when Jim reads the book he has nightmares, but then he discovers Spock has those nightmares, too, and it’s more than ‘just’ a book. Probably sounds bizarre but I really enjoyed it. ….and doesn’t every Trek plot EVER sound bizarre af when you try to describe it?
That’s all I’ve got right now!! This got so long I’M SO SORRY TBH BUT I HAD TO BE THOROUGH.
In “Home” (S4E03) the Enterprise crew takes some time for R&R after the events of the Xindi arc and the finale of the Temporal Cold War. Trip and T’Pol take advantage of that time to visit T’Pol’s family on Vulcan. So take some time and plan a vacation to visit Vulcan yourself!
Hello, I think I clicked the wrong button but here I go ^^ so I wondering how would kuroo, oikawa, bokuto, and akaashi reacted if they found out their S/o turned out to be a magical girl like miraculous ladybug or such. Please and Thank you ~!
no, no you got the right button ^0^ I haven’t seen Miraculous Ladybug yet but I’m hope to soon! I’ve heard nothing but good things <3
Kuroo would have the angriest initial reaction of the four. he’d grab you by the wrist and call you reckless and thoughtless and selfish, and you’re about to bite back but you see the tears burning in his eyes. he needs to let you go now, though, because you need to save those people you’re the only one who can get to them.
he’s really just worried and the misdirected anger is initially at himself. for not realizing the burdens and the secrets you’ve had to shoulder all by yourself.
when the fighting is done, you’re a little injured and your costume is a little torn and you’re making the long trek home by yourself and just when you realize you can’t make it and you start to tumble forward, someone catches you. it’s Kuroo and there are tears in your eyes because you didn’t think he’d still be there for you, not after lying—
you realize you’ve said as much out loud when he corrects you and tells you it’s not your fault at all he’s just sad you thought you had to lie just to protect him when it really was just hurting both of you. he piggy backs you back to your apartment where he cleans up your wounds and he makes you a hot comforting beverage.
the two of you end up cuddling and and talking about all the worries and things you’ve kept from each other since you first started fighting crime as a magical hero.
you’re at a shopping mall looking for a Christmas gift for Oikawa when a baddie decides to terrorize all the holiday shoppers. you clear out the mall not realizing that Oikawa couldn’t get out. he’s hiding behind a pillar! and you’re hiding behind one, too, across from where he is. and he’s about to call out to you, but before he can, you complete your transformation.
he claps a hand over his mouth not wanting to reveal your secret identity or to distract you and watches the whole time, enamored with you. (he was also shopping for your Christmas gift lol, which he still ends up giving to you but he probably later adds like. things that’ll help you in your fight against evil!)
at the end of the battle, he comes out of his hiding spot and swoops you into his arms. you’re still running on some adrenaline so you kinda punch him in the gut but realize it’s him by the squawking noise he makes and you’re like “OMG TOORU I’M SO SORRY I’M SO—“ and you backtrack so fast you’re like I MEAN kind handsome civilian I’m so sorry omg
he winces but is like “no, no, it’s alright,” and through the pain, he winks at you. you get all flustered and actually kind of mad like he’s flirting with someone who isn’t you!! and you’re like “h-how dare you!”
he’s a smart good boy and he’s like “no no!! I know it’s you, no! I’m not—!” and he realizes he’s digging a bigger hole for himself so he just thrusts the now crumpled shopping bag with your Christmas gift toward you. you open the bag and tear up at the sweet gift, transform back into your normal clothes, and hug Oikawa and pepper his face with kisses.
you find the gift you bought a few feet away, equally if not more crumpled
he would think you’re SO COOL!! he’d walk into your room mid-transformation because you’re practicing and checking out how your body fills out the magical outfit. it’s really cute actually - you’re transforming then un-transforming then transforming over and over again in different poses, practicing catch phrases and stuff.
he’d SQUAWK - and I mean definitely squawk - and you freeze, mid-transformation like “I!! Can explain!!” so you’re half-magical outfit, half-normal clothes.
contrary to his noise of surprise, he’s quite enamored. he’s absolutely over the moon. he’s heard about you in locker room gossip and seen you in brief glimpses on the news. he always thought you were super cool, but even more so now that he knows the hero he admires is also his s/o!!
he does do a complete 180 though when he realizes how much danger you put yourself in on a regular basis. not surprisingly, he’s even MORE distressed when he recalls there’s a handsome masked hero who the public frequently cites as flirting with your magical alter ego.
“don’t worry,” you say. you finish the transformation and wrap Bokuto in your arms. “I’ve only got the hoots for one guy!~”
Akaashi is getting a little distant because you’ve had to cancel on dates or leave midway through a couple of them, and it’s just increasing as time goes by. you have to leave in the middle of one date because of a threat in the downtown area where you guys are, and Akaashi waits for a little bit before gathering his things and leaving.
however, before he can get out safely, he’s caught in the crossfire! as you’re magical alter ego, you swoop in and rescue your damsel in distress of a boyfriend. you’re holding him in your arms as you’re moving away from the danger zone to put him down when he says your name. “______?”
you falter, and you’re like “w-what? I m-mean, who??” and Akaashi repeats your name like, “is that you?!” and you put him down and you’re like “Look, I can explain—“
and he’s like “no, I don’t wanna hear it.” and your expression falls and you clench your fists. you think he’s gonna break up with you but he pulls you into his chest and he finishes his sentence: “not until you’ve done your job.”
tears spring to your eyes and he pulls back only to kiss you on the forehead and wish you safety. you kiss him again but this time on the lips and you’re even more determined to do your job. knowing your bf is watching you, you put a little more flair and magic in your moves.
~ You were feeling really bad about yourself; no one seemed to notice you at all. No one except your favorite angel…~
Reader x Castiel, Dean, Sam
Warnings: Reader has very low self-esteem. Mild Angst (?), Curses and F Bombs. Fluff to finish. SFW.
A/N: Not great, but I need a little love. so here, have some Cas love with me :::sigh:::
You weren’t asking for much, just a little acknowledgement, maybe a kind word thrown your way. Maybe a little “Hey, looking good Y/N.” But no, you got nothing. Dean barely looked at you and Sam was as oblivious as always. It’s not like you got dressed up for either one of them, but still they could have said something.
Every day you bummed around the bunker in sweats and old t-shirts, hair pulled back in messy buns or ponytails. On hunts you dressed much like the Winchesters: heavy, unflattering jeans, tees, bulky jacket and boots. It’s not like you didn’t like being girly, you just seldom had the chance.
Dean was getting restless; it had been about a week since your last case and there was nothing for him to do. Finally, he decided he was going into town for a change of scenery and some drinks and you and Sam were coming with him. He didn’t let either of you protest, but you were fairly sure you wouldn’t have anyway - going out sounded amazing.
Hello hello ^^, I would love to have a Zombie au! Bts reaction where they see you taking on a horde of zombies really well with only a gun. If that's too much to ask I'm sorry!
— I have to admit that I am not confident in my writing skills when it comes to fantasy or science fiction reactions like this. However, I wanted to try my very best for you and I hope you like my take on it because I’ve never really written something like this before! Thank you so much for requesting and enjoy!
Seokjin had felt extremely secure leaving you alone an hour ago. You’d both been staying in the same secluded cave for the past few days and you hadn’t seen a single soul since. Jin figured it would be completely safe for him to raid the pharmacy you’d passed on the way there and try to stock back up on medicine before relocating again. He knew it was better to be prepared for a quick escape if necessary - but he didn’t realize you’d have to make one so soon. He could hear dead leaves and branches crunching unforgivingly as he neared closer to your hideout, but he immediately took off in your direction as he heard gunshots and painful groans echoing towards him. As he turned the corner, he noticed the impressive number of bodies motionless beside you, but cut off his admiring to help you kill the undead creatures still moving in your direction. “I could’ve handled them on my own,” you huffed out in his direction, bangs flying out of your face as you boredly put a bullet through the last zombie’s skull. Jin siezed the short moment to kiss the middle of your forehead in a silent agreement. He knew you were strong enough to handle your own - but that didn’t mean he’d ever let you fight alone.
Yoongi jolts awake violently, his eyes trying to focus on anything familiar in the pitch blackness of the night. The sound of a single bullet rings in his ear as his vision dazes blankly at the pale moonlight peering through the ajar fabric of the tent you’d found shelter in. Yoongi unwillingly moves to close the tent tightly - not wanting you to get sick once again. However, it’s as he’s tying the entrance shut with a final knot when the sleepiness washes away with an icy panic and his gaze shoots back to your very empty sleeping bag. It’s at that moment that another dozen shots start ringing out when he grabs his own gun and starts running in your direction, mentally scolding you for sneaking out for food even though he insisted he’d do it himself in the safe daylight. He ignores the blood painting the soles of his shoes as he sees a single zombie still inching towards you. But just as he shouts your name in worry and raises his gun to his eye level, a single bullet from your own weapon violently finishes off the last of the group. Yoongi looks paler than ever as you approach him, blood spattered upon your triumphant face as you proudly say, “I told you this spare gun would come in handy one day.”
Hoseok had never been more livid and frightened in his entire life as he helplessly watched you take on an entire group of rabid zombies in front of him. You both were only supposed to be going out for food and finding sturdier hunting arrows down by the river. He never ever expected that he would end up twisting his ankle on the way back to camp. You had been in the middle of wrapping his sprain when the ambush approached and now you were fighting on your own. Hoseok had stumbled to fight alongside you as best as he could - and when he fell to the ground as pain jolted through him from the pressure, he showered the hoard with every last bullet that he had. He even sacrificed the few arrows that you’d gathered earlier in the day in a vain attempt to take down any of the rabid monsters headed towards you. He knew you were more than capable of defending yourself, but he still shook with regret and anger at himself until the very last zombie shrieked before toppling over with a dreadful last breath. The barrel of your gun still smoking, you rushed back over to Hoseok to assess if there had been any further damage, not failing to notice the fear yet intense pride beaming from him because of you.
Namjoon had insisted over and over again that you didn’t need to accompany him while he went out hunting for food. He tried to get you to stay behind so you could gather up your energy again - there was no need to waste it by joining him on a task that he could perform perfectly well on his own. However, he realized he lost the argument as you started slipping on your boots and loading your gun while simultaneously ignoring all of his reasonings. This is how you’d found yourself trekking alongside your boyfriend as you headed towards the more desolate corner of the forest. When you insisted on splitting up to cover more ground, Namjoon tried to reason against you again. However, all of his worries were quickly dismissed by you with a subtle wave of your gun and your hips swaying in triumph as you parted ways with him regardless. Less than ten minutes had passed when he heard a gunshot from your direction. Assuming you’d found something large enough that needed a bullet, he gave up his own hunt and made his way towards you. However, as the sound of a shower of bullets and ear-splitting cries came from your direction, he started sprinting to you as nimbly as he could. His gun drawn the moment he caught sight of you, he paused as he realized you were completely at ease shooting left and right, acting as if you were skipping stones instead of kicking major ass. His sigh of relief as the final zombie fell caught your attention and you shyly smiled in his direction, begrudgingly admitting that maybe you should stick together next time.
Jimin wants to protect you from absolutely everything that he can considering the post-apocalyptic circumstances at hand. You’ve tried to explain to him time and time again that you’re both going to need to pull your own weight if you want to survive and you have to be able to defend yourself at a moment’s notice. He doesn’t feel comfortable with the idea of you ever having to protect yourself in case he’s not around, but he has to admit he’s a bit more at ease when he watches you practicing day and night with the guns you’d manage to scavenge. He knows you’ve perfected your skill and have your defense attack down to a two second point-and-shoot with deadly precision. But that doesn’t make him any less frantic when he awakes to gunshots right outside your tent and jolts outside just in time to see you annihilating a pack of zombies slowly inching closer to the tent Jimin had been naively sleeping in just moments earlier. The loud thud of the final body slamming against the dirt startles Jimin from his fearful awe as he looks up to you, gulping as you wipe the sweat from your forehead before turning back to the open flames and continuing to cook breakfast like nothing had ever happened.
Taehyung knew he should’ve been more prepared when you guys decided to relocate earlier that day. He knew he didn’t have enough ammo if you were ambushed - knew he would have to stock back up when you got back into town - but he ventured out with the hope that nothing would happen in the few hours before then. Unfortunately, luck wasn’t on his side as you guys stumbled over the mountain line to find a hoard of undead creatures waiting below. Before he could push you backwards to reroute another way, the aching loud snap of a twig beneath your foot alerted the crowd below and they mercilessly headed in your direction with only bloodlust in their eyes. Taehyung cursed under his breath, dropping all of his belongings to the ground and hazily searching for his gun, knowing he only had a few bullets to use before you’d have to run. Just as his hands were fumbling with the safety lock, he heard the familiar ringing of shots echoing past him and he looked up in time to see you ravaging through the men in front of you. Your boyfriend sat back helplessly, logically knowing you were going to be okay but emotionally on edge the entire time. The final body dropping with an unapologetic thud, you turned back to Taehyung with a nod, shushing him before he could utter out any regret and hurried him back to his feet so you could get moving again.
Jungkook has insisted many times that you don’t have to worry about fending for yourself. He wants to prove to you that he’s a gentleman even in dire circumstances and he can protect you from anything that tries to tear you apart from him. While he’s been able to keep that promise for quite some time, he can’t deny that he is absolutely outnumbered as he tries to fight off the seemingly endless zombies gravitating towards you. It seems like every time he feels like he can breathe and finally reload his ammo, even more of them are coming out of nowhere to keep him on his toes. He can’t deny the intense amount of adrenaline running through his body from pure terror. The sound of multiple gunshots drives him into panic mode as he realizes you’ve started shooting beside him. “I can handle it! Go back to your hiding spot!,” he bellows out, barely concealing the shakiness of his voice as the image of you not making it out alive drives him into shooting abruptly at anything and everything in front of him. He quirks his eyebrow up in confusion as he notices the intense drop in creatures coming from your side, but doesn’t have time to verbalize this before you aim your gun in the direction of the group still trudging towards Jungkook and swiftly kill every last one of them.
