twin daughter

4

That morning he was acting mighty strange. I took him to the hospital and I had him checked out while I made my rounds. About an hour later I saw him sneaking out of Intensive Care, fully dressed. He turned and he looked at me and I saw that strange face again. I called out to him, he didn’t say a word. He just turned around and walked out.

Feyre and Rhys Children

Imagine if Feyre and Rhys didn’t just have a daughter

We all like to think that Rhys and Feyre have a daughter. I being one. Cause OVERPROTECTIVE COURT OF DREAMS !!!! But imagine if Rhys and Feyre have a set of twin boys before their daughter.

  • The boys were born 100 years after the battle with Hybern and everything that happened under the mountain. Feyre wanted time and she got that. She got time with the court of dreams uninterrupted, she got the the freedom she had never had before, she got to heal and become a strong amazing High Lady. But also, she got time to have Rhys all to herself. They are immortal so there is no rush.
  • But then Feyre finds herself pregnant. And she can feel two hearts beating within her and Rhys can hear them too when he puts his ear to her stomach.
  • At first it’s terror and fear for both of them. High Fae have trouble with pregnancies, and two babies at one time … this is going to be very hard. But together, they are ready.
  • When Feyre gives birth to her sons they are no more than 5 minuets apart.
    • The older one is named Faron
    • The younger one is named Florin
  • The boys are both Illyrians, wings and all. They are obviously powerful because of who their parents are but no one quite knows how that power will manifest itself.
  • The twins are almost identical. In looks both are more like Rhys, with the same tan skin and black hair like him. But one has Feyre’s eyes and the other has Rhys’s.
  • However it is their personalities that are the big difference.
    • The older one, Faron, is more talkative around strangers, but when around family he is more like Feyre. That is to say quiet, protective and strong in a less of a presence way but quiet power way.
    • The younger one, Florin, is more quiet around strangers. He can easily blend into the shadows, content with his twin doing all of the talking. But around family and friends, boy oh boy is he like Rhys. He is smug, arrogant and completely devoted to those he loves.
  • They grow up happy in Velaris. Learning to fight with Azriel and Cassian. Learning to winnow with Mor. Learning to be scary without even trying with Amren. Learning to paint and read with their mom and learning to fly with their dad.
  • But just like every young Illyrian, they go to a camp to learn how to train for battle.
  • Feyre goes with them, and stays in the house that Rhys’s mother stayed in when he was training. Rhys always comes for dinner and stays the night. The rest of the Court of Dreams stops by very regularly.
  • The twins are not given special treatment in the camps. They are treated the same, and even choose to sleep with their comrades. Making friend with a lot of them, their closest friends being three Irriyan females (cause yes Rhys fixed this) and two other males.
  • As they get older they grow into their powers more. And like their father, their powers cannot be tamed with syphon stones.
    • Faron inherits Rhys ability to mist and Feyre’s ability to light up and call upon water (sometimes he gets really jealous of his brother, but when Feyre shows him what water can really do … he is obviously very pleased)
    • Florin gets Rhys ability to control the darkness and shape shift from Feyre (he turns out to become more like Az- he is the quieter of the two)
    • Both can winnow and can read minds like Rhys and Feyre
  • When they become old enough and start the whole lusting after people (I like to think that the older one is Bi and the younger one is gay) Feyre does the same thing Rhys’s mother did with her ring. She gets two rings that Rhys had given her over the centuries and put it into the cottage of the weaver and told them that “Their future mate or bride/husband had better be able to get the pieces of jewelry or else they would never be able to survive staying with them for all eternity”
  • Now, with the Illyrians that they became super close with, the twins formed their own mini Court of Dreams, but instead called it Court of Stars
  • Rhys and Feyre decide not to step down once their sons meet the age of maturity. In fact when the twins do reach the age of maturity, neither know who should be made High Lord. (There is talk of making them both but ultimately it goes to their daughter who they have later - and no, not right after she reaches the age of maturity)
    • Faron becomes her second and Florin becomes her shadow singer
  • And like their father they get tattoos too, their first ones matching insignia’s of the Night Court on both their knees like their father. (They so look up to Rhys even if they don’t admit it). Eventually each of them adds onto their ink, sometimes the same thing, sometimes not. Sometimes it is in the same place and sometimes not.  
  • After another 50 years since they matured, Feyre gets pregnant again. And this time it is the baby girl.
    • Let’s just say she has two very protective, very scary older brothers and family

lord i’m so sorry…….i’ve been thinking about this since i first read stone ocean

a bioshock infinite crossover for my favorite dysfunctional father and daughter

Outlining your novel scene by scene (Part 1)

Did you ever feel bored midway writing a scene? Or lukewarm? Do you feel like readers will jump full chunks of text?

Well, I used to feel that all the time.

I disliked outline with a passion. I thought it stole the magic away from creation. I thought it would trap my story in a box. Whenever I tried, I had no idea where to start, so I blamed outlining all over again. I would just write the first scene and allow my story to unfold itself. Although it is fun to let your story take the lead, it’s also chaotic.

I realized the importance of outlining on my third book. After months and months of hard work, my story turned out just… boring. Weak characters. A plot full of holes. No defined theme. Useless scenes. And a story that started with a goal, but changed so many times along the pages and accomplished almost nothing. Slow. Tedious. I was frustrated. I had to delete more than half to make it work. Even after rewriting, I wasn’t happy. That project was a major fail.

Originally posted by failworldblog

And failing was good, because, on my next project, I outlined. 

I listed all arcs and, within the arcs, all scenes. I was mad. I wanted control. I wanted power. And I only sat down to write when I knew exactly what was going to happen from start to finish. I never wrote something that fast and effortlessly in my life. It didn’t take away the magic of writing, it simply gave me a sense of direction.

Outline is a map. And when you have a map, you have a journey to make.

If, like me, you are a bit lost, here’s how you can create the map for your next novel, or how to outline your book scene by scene. I’ll share with you three techniques, but will divide them into three posts. This is the part one. Or the Map Technique.

I advice you to grab pen and paper, and move away from the computer. Find a comfortable spot, maybe a coffee shop, or by your window. And let’s work!

Originally posted by sashabloodsoup

Before outlining, write down your storyline in one phrase. I’ll be using an example to help you understand this technique. So, my storyline is:

Masked twins fight against a violent dictatorship.

Now, let’s start.

In every journey, we need a departure point and an arrival point. This is essential for a map. And, if it’s essential for a map, it’s essential for our outline. So, create the start (departure) and the end (arrival) of your story. With my example, it goes:

  • Twins have their lives destroyed by the government (departure)
  • They destroy the government (arrival)

Amazing!! Our map is taking form. 

What else a journey must have? Milestones. Without milestones, we don’t know how far we are from the arrival. They are essential as well. But how can we put milestones in an outline? Easy. Between departure and arrival, you will list every important arc (or event, or key scene, or plot point) that must happen in order to take the plot from start to end. More or less like this:

  • Twins have their lives destroyed by the government (departure)
    • Their family is destroyed
    • They are taken in by their uncle
    • Uncle and twins plan their revenge
    • Twins find their mask
    • Twins perform small acts of justice
    • They gain the respect of the citizens
    • Government sees them as threat
    • Government tries to erase them
    • Twins perform huge acts of justice
    • They are almost killed 
    • Uncle is killed
    • They perform one last act of justice by killing the dictator
    • Citizens claim for democracy
    • Democracy is installed
    • The twins destroy their masks 
  • They destroy the government (arrival)

All milestones are placed, nothing too fancy, just a description of what we’ll be seeing along the journey. Good. 

From milestone to milestone, we have roads, or sequences of roads. Between arcs, write down sequences of scenes that must happen to move the plot forward. For example: 

  • Twins have their lives destroyed by the government (departure)
    • Their family is destroyed
      • Twins live with their father (who is an important journalist)
      • Father is abducted by the government
      • Social worker takes them to lonely uncle
    • They are taken in by their uncle
      • Twins and uncle can’t adjust to new life
      • They are all filled with grief
      • Uncle comes up with revenge plan
    • Uncle and twins plan their revenge
      • Twins trains while uncle perfects his plan
      • Twins and uncle adjust to new life
      • They become a family
    • Twins find their mask
      • Getting ready for their first step
    • Twins perform small acts of justice
      • They destroy factory that uses slave force
      • They kill politician who closed hospitals
      • They kill a famous torturer for the government party
      • They find their father’s file
      • Discover that father was tortured and killed
    • They gain the respect of the citizens

We are almost there… 

Because, in every mile of the road, we have landscapes. Scenes are landscapes. And we need hundreds of different landscapes along the journey, beautiful ones, strange ones, unexpected ones… we need scenes. To every sequence, create as many scenes as you need:

  • Twins have their lives destroyed by the government (departure)
    • Their family is destroyed
      • Twins live with their father (who is an important journalist)
        • Father receives a journalism award
        • Twins enjoy the party
        • It’s time to go
        • Father drives them home
      • Father is abducted by the government
        • In isolated street, the car is stoped
        • Two man attacks them and abducts their father
        • One of the twins receive a scar on their face
        • Twins are left alone in deserted street
      • Social worker takes them to lonely uncle
        • Social worker takes them from the hospital
        • Drives them to poor area
        • Leaves them with unknown uncle
    • They are taken in by their uncle
      • Twins and uncle can’t adjust to new life
        • Twins can’t eat
        • Twins won’t leave the house
        • Uncle tries to get information on what happened to his brother, but fails
        • It’s believed that their father died
      • They are all filled with grief
        • Uncle and twins have a sincere talk about father, they tell past stories, they laugh, they cry
        • For the first time, they have dinner together
      • Uncle comes up with revenge plan

You can almost see the story playing inside your head like a movie. That’s the magic of a scene by scene outline. :D

This last step is optional. But it’s a great exercise to trim the rough edges. Under each scene, catalog which character(s) you’ll need, what place(s) will be used, what does the scene accomplishes and ways it can unfold. Example:

  • Father receives a journalism award
    • Characters: Father, twins, father’s coworkers, VIPs
    • Place: Banquet hall 
    • Accomplishment: To show that father is a famous journalist that gives no chills for what the dictator says
    • Possibilities: 
      • Father is announced as the award winner
      • Speech against the dictator
      • Ends speech by showing his love for his son/daughter(s)
      • Twins are proud (and kind of embarrassed as well)
      • Applause, applause
      • Nice food
      • Beautiful dresses
      • It’s the twins birthday
      • Or it’s Christmas
      • Open hall with garden
      • Fireworks
      • Rich people

Takes time, but, now, you have the most detailed map a traveller can possess. It’s easy to depart, just take a seat and enjoy the ride.

Happily (n)ever after?

Request: Can i request OUAT fic in which reader is henry twin but she didn’t get adopted by regina? When emma and henry reunited, they decided they want to know u. But reader didn’t exactly get her best chance in life. She is not welcoming either. They took her to storybrooke. Regina n the charming tries to get to know her too.

You looked around, checking to see if anyone was watching.
“You alright, miss?” A security guard asked you, looking at you suspiciously.
“I’m waiting for my friend, she said she’d be here at half past.” You said, trying to look worried.
The guard checked his watch. “It’s only twenty past two.”
“Half past one.” You said, going onto your toes and looking around. “Maybe I’m in the wrong shop. Is there another one of these nearby? I’m not from around here.”
The guard shook his head. “No there’s not, sorry, but you can’t be waiting in here, I’m afraid. It looks like you’re trying to steal something. There’s a bench outside where you can wait.”
You nodded, thanking him, then left the shop, walking quickly. Once out of sight of the store, you started running. After a minute or two, you ducked into a quiet area and emptied out your pockets. You’d managed to grab an apple, and a few candy bars. You quickly ate them, knowing your foster brother would most likely eat most of your dinner once you got home.
A shadow fell over you, and you saw the face of your twin brother, Henry. He’d contacted you by email a while ago, telling you how you were related, and about your mother and saying that they wanted to get to know you, even including some pictures. You hadn’t responded.
“What are you doing here?” You demanded, quickly stuffing your candy back in your pocket.
“I wanted to show you this.” He said, handing you a few papers.
You suspiciously looked through them, a frown appearing and growing on your face as you realised what they were.
“Mum’s adopting you.” Henry smiled at you.
You huffed. “I have a family, I live with them.”
“They said it was okay. They signed it. Come on.” He held out his hand, which you didn’t take, walking stiffly beside him back to a yellow car with a blonde woman leaning against it. “Hey Y/N, I’m Emma.”
You folded your arms, trying your best to make it clear to her that you were angry. She opened the car door, and Henry smiled at you again. You decided that you hated him, and his smiling.
“Wanna sit in the front?” He offered.
You didn’t respond, climbing into the back of the car and folding your arms again. On the seat beside you was a suitcase, which you recognised as yours, full of your things, that you’d never unpacked.

A few hours later, Emma parked the car on the street, and the three of you got out, Emma carrying your bag for you. You went up some steps and into an apartment. “I’m renting this place for a while.” She explained. “Henry lives with Regina, who adopted him.”
“And ten years later, you decided to adopt me.” You muttered, looking around. “What changed your mind?”
“Hey, she gave you up to give you your best chance!” Henry argued.
You spun to face him. “Did she tell you that crap? Or was it your loving mom, Regina?”
He glared at you. “Neither of them did! I know because it was the same reason Emma was abandoned. You should just be glad!”
“Henry, enough!” Emma snapped. “Why don’t you go order us some food in Granny’s? And you can find the others, I’m sure they want to meet Y/N.” She softened slightly.
Henry nodded, taking the money Emma offered, then left the apartment.
“Maybe Y/N doesn’t want to meet the others.” You muttered, folding your arms.
Emma sighed and sat down, gesturing for you to sit too. “How bad was it?” She asked softly.
You frowned, still standing. “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“I have a superpower kiddo, I can tell when people are lying.” She gave you a gentle smile, but you turned away.
“Listen, Y/N, I heard about some of the other places you stayed. I’m a bail bonds person, I know what I’m doing. I can promise you that here is not going to be like any of those places, but if you don’t believe me, that’s okay. Just give me some time. The adoption papers kind of mean you’re stuck with me.” She stood up and walked past you, opening the door and smiling at you. “Let’s go meet the others, okay?”
You nodded reluctantly, following her out of the apartment and into a diner. She gave you a gentle push towards a booth where Henry was sitting with some food. “Go eat, I’m sure you’re hungry.”
You nodded and sat opposite Henry while Emma went to talk to some more people.
“This is for you.” Henry said, pushing a mug of hot cocoa to you, along with a slice of apple pie. “So is this. You seemed to really enjoy the apple you had earlier, so I thought you might like some more.”
“Thanks.” You mumbled, sipping the cocoa, then frowning as you tried to place the mystery ingredient that made it really yummy.
“Cinnamon.” Henry smiled. “It makes it much nicer, doesn’t it?”
You nodded. “Yeah, I never thought of doing that.”
“Well I’m sure you had other things to think about.” A woman with dark hair said, sitting beside Henry. “I’m Regina, Henry’s mom.” She smiled at you.
You nodded. “Hi. i’m Henry’s twin. I don’t have a mom.” You sipped your cocoa, and then started eating your slice of pie, making sure to eat it slowly so that you didn’t have to talk.

A few days passed, and you warmed up to Henry, a bit, but you still weren’t friendly. You were on your way home from school when Mary Margaret caught up to you.
“Y/N, Emma just called me. We’re all going to be spending the night at Regina’s.” She smiled.
“Why?” You demanded.
“The Wicked Witch is threatening our family. Regina has a protection spell around her home. Come on, let’s go.” She gestured to you to follow her.
“Do I have time to get my stuff?” You sighed, having decided to feign disinterest in all the magic stuff, even though you loved it.
“No, come on, it’ll be fun, I promise.” She started walking towards Regina’s house, which was really more of a manor to you.

A few hours later, and you were sitting on a couch in Regina’s living room, your hood over your head, pretending to be asleep.
You felt the couch move as someone sat next to you, and you put a little more effort into pretending to be asleep.
“You know,” Regina began, “Henry thought I was the Evil Queen. At least your adopted mother is the Saviour.”
“I’ve been in enough foster homes to know that after a while, the nice stops.” You muttered.
Regina rested her arm around you. “Y/N, I know this is difficult for you, and you’re scared in case you get hurt again, but is there anything we can do to show you that we’re different?”
You shook your head stubbornly, which made Regina sigh, and then she smiled. “Do you like reading?”
You nodded slightly, and moments later, you were sitting in the middle of a magnificent library. Regina gestured around. “You can read whatever you want, but if you’re using the ladder, please be careful. That door leads to the hallway.” She patted you on the back, and then left through the door she’d pointed out.
Much as you wanted to, you were determined not to give in and read the books, so you sat there, arms folded stubbornly, for hours, until the door opened and Prince Charming came in.
“Go away.” You ordered, and heard him sigh.
“Nope. Come on.”
When you didn’t move, he simply picked you up and carried you out of the library, into the back garden. It looked to be around eight or nine in the evening. He put you down and then stood opposite you.
“Unfortunately, this town seems to be a target for attacks, so if you’re gonna stay here, I’d prefer if you knew how to look after yourself.” He picked up two sticks, tossing one to you. “Ever been in a sword fight?”
You grinned, despite yourself. “Not exactly, but I have been in ordinary fights. And sticks help.” With that, you jumped forward, hitting him in the stomach with your stick. As he let out a groan, a genuine smile rose to your lips, maybe it wouldn’t be so bad here after all, because if they were teaching you to look after yourself, it meant that they couldn’t do anything to you, so maybe they really were the good guys, your ‘happy ending’, if you were to put it into Henry’s words.

Prompt/au: Single dad // non idol producer au

Genre: Fluff after all that background info I swear
A/N: Literally no one asked for this I’m just really self-indulgent today after cutting and dying my hair again lol

  • Jihoon has a little girl named Soobin and she is literally his whole entire world 
  • Truth be told, when she was first born he was kind of a mess 
  • He didn’t expect to be doing this all alone, and while he had the boys and his mother whenever she came to visit from Busan,, he still figured that he’d have a s/o by his side,,, and now he had this little baby and no one to be by his side and help,,,
  • It was his first child and he was left to kind of just try and figure things out and balance all his old and new responsibilities,,, 
  • He had his mother, his pediatrician, and the boys who also had kids on speed dial for the longest time and was calling them every five seconds for every. little. damn. thing.
  • Listen he likes to think of himself as a calm guy and he’s not really known for freaking out,,,
  • But now he had this tiny little life who couldn’t tell him what was wrong and every small sneeze or long nap made him panic
  • There was one time his anxieties were justified,, 
  • Soobin had caught a cold when she was only a couple months and her fever spiked really late at night
  • And she was crying and coughing a lot and Jihoon was panicking because all these home remedies his mother and the internet had recommended weren’t working and his car had broken down two days ago and was still in the shop
  • It just,,, wasn’t looking good and Jihoon felt like he was going to throw up because he couldn’t do anything to make it better
  • Seungcheol swears that one of the scariest moments of his life was when Jihoon called him at 3 am, his voice visibly strained and breaking with emotion as he begged for a ride to the hospital
  • He was just,,, terrified of losing his daughter, and quite literally cried out of sheer relief when the doctor told him and Cheol that it was going to be fine and that she just had to rest in the hospital with the doctors on standby until her fever broke 
  • Cheol deadass had to like hold Jihoon in the waiting room because he was a complete mess and even called his mom for him because it was clear this boy needed some rest
  • After that disaster, he began working slowly on calming his fears about being a single parent but he hovered around his daughter A LOT 
  • Took an insane amount of personal days off work the first year of her life because even though he trusted Joshua as a babysitter he was still a worry wart 
  • The boys swear that having a kid softened Jihoon by like a million times and honestly,,, they’re right
  • Because from the moment he held that little girl in his hands, he knew he had to be a better person for her (even though he was already pretty damn great to begin with)
  • He knew he had to take better care of himself too, which meant sleeping as much as possible and eating better and little things that he didn’t tend to do 
  • Plus Jihoon holding his baby was so??? soft,, like he always got the sweetest look in his eyes when he was looking down at her
  • Although it meant a lot of late nights and stress,, he really did love that baby stage 
  • Soobin was just?? The cutest damn baby. She didn’t look exactly like him but there was definitely some similarities 
  • Literally a daddy’s girl from day one 
  • She always turned her head when she heard his voice and Joshua and anyone else who hung around her when Woozi had to work or go to an appointment swears up and down that she wouldn’t smile for that first year unless her dad was around 
  • Jihoon read parenting books and blogs a lot, often with her in one arm while his other hand held the book, her head on his chest while she napped and lowkey drooled on his shirt a little bit
  • Literally picture that for a moment,,, Jihoon with his black undercut and a book in one hand and his little baby in the other,,, what a good image
  • She was so easily entertained when it came to her dad?? Literally he’d made a face at her and she would react 
  • She LOVED peekaboo when she was that little, and literally Hoshi has so many pictures of Jihoon and baby Soobin smiling at each other while playing it and he pulls them out whenever he denies that fatherhood has softened him 
  • Wooz took pictures of as many milestones as he could tbh
  • The first time she held her head up on her own, when she started sitting up, all sorts of things
  • He has like 20 videos of her in this little infant swing he bought her and she’s just positively delighted in the damn thing
  • Whenever he needed to work from home he could put her in that and make sure she was close enough for him to be able to get to her quickly and she’d be perfectly fine for hours so long as he was in view
  • He sang to her a lot (and still does)
  • He discovered the song “Light” by Sleeping at Last via Joshua and literally it became her lullaby 
  • He sings her lots of goofy songs and more lighthearted ones as well
  • It’s so cute too like,,, Jihoon’s in a messy apron with a black t-shirt underneath, his hair in disarray as he stands in front of her high chair and singing little nursery rhymes with his stingray smile to make her relax and laugh enough to let him feed her some baby food
  • It was really fun when some of the boys came over too because they would all just sing and do little skits and doofy things for her and she’d laugh a sweet little toddler laugh and they would all just m e l t 
  • Soobin literally had them all in the palm of her tiny hand
  • He’s very good at ensuring her early development is good and within no time she’s taking shaky steps and starting to talk
  • Sometimes it’s hard to understand her but Jihoon understands what she means most of the time
  • Like one time she tried to talk to Chan and he was just “what” and Jihoon poked his head out of his office like “she wants you to play dolls with her” 
  • By the time she was two, Jihoon had the parenting thing down for the most part, and even nagged the other dads in svt about stuff 
  • He still asked for advice whenever he felt he needed to, and Soobin was never lacking in surprises, but fatherhood came much easier to him now 
  • It was also helpful that she was able to walk and talk now too lmao 
  • She always always always wants to find ways to help her daddy and she gets all excited whenever he says she can help him work
  • He doesn’t have her do too much, just press buttons or fetch something or give a listen to a track he’s working on, but she’s happy all the same and he thinks it’s fucking adorable so he goes along with it
  • He wants to be the best dad possible for his little girl, and as a result he asks the other members of what I like to call dadteen (I’m not funny I’ll excuse myself)
  • Jeonghan has twin 8 year old daughters (and also a baby boy) and is a hair EXPERT so he had him teach him how to do lots of hairstyles for Soobin
  • He always does her hair in the mornings when she’s sitting at the table like half asleep still and slowly chewing on her breakfast 
  • And he’s always so gentle like she only complains about it hurting once in a blue moon
  • He also made Mingyu (who has the LOUDEST son ever) teach him a bunch of recipes that are healthy but also things that she’ll like
  • It took him a few tries but he got it down, and purchased a million and a half cookbooks recommended by friends and other parents 
  • Has Joshua babysit a lot still, but as she’s gotten older he’s also recruited BooSeokSoon to help out as well because she thinks they’re funny 
  • One of Wonwoo’s younger kids is a little girl around the same age as her and they’re certified BFFs who like to garden and adventure together 
  • She LOVES going to the zoo and names all the animals she sees there after her uncles, aka the noisy boys in svt
  • She named a sloth after Wonu and Jihoon couldn’t stop laughing because that was his nickname in college
  • Named the giraffe Mingyu and he high fived her for that one
  • Although Woozi comes off as a rather serious guy, Soobin comes off as an animated and cheerful little girl 
  • She liked to run ahead of him a lot and he increased his stamina pretty damn quickly because he had to run up to her and remind her to hold his hand all the time 
  • She also is now in charge of all his hairstyle decisions and has made it so Jihoon has experienced a wide array of colors, from normals ones like blonde and brown to more outrageous ones like pink and tangerine 
  • He absolutely joined a single dad advice forum 
  • Soobin imitates him a lot like Woozi will be like “Soobin eat your peas” and she’ll puff out her cheeks and stick her hands on her hips and go crosseyed and in this fake deep voice go “Soobin eat your peas”
  • And he stares at her all sternly but she just laughs and spoons peas into her mouth but whoops she was laughing too hard and fucking launched like three across the room nice one Soobin 
  • You meet Woozi when she’s age four, rapidly going on five
  • You’re at a grocery store nearby your new apartment and just shopping for some general stuff cause yanno when you move all you’re gonna have in your kitchen is like a thing of salt, some cheap ramen, and a few spice containers you’re pretty sure have been in your cupboard for like 5 years 
  • You had moved from a pretty far place so like,, there were so many brands that you didn’t recognize and you were just debating between these two kinds of cereal that both had bizarre names 
  • You didn’t really register the rapid footsteps and child laughter until something smacked into your legs
  • You looked down to see a little girl stumble back and rub her forehead from where it had collided with your knee, her hair in pigtails and decorated with silver hair ties and a little moon clip
  • Instantly you were like oh shit and put the cereal down to crouch in front of her and ask “hey little girl, are you okay???”
  • And instead of getting all upset like some kids would, she just beams and in a polite tone goes “yes, I’m fine!! I was just running away from my dad because he makes a grumpy face when I do, and it’s funny”
  • You laugh when she tells you and hesitate before putting a hand on her head, checking for a bump as you say “well it certainly sounds funny when you say it like that, but he’s probably worried so why don’t we go find him??”
  • Soobin agrees and you stand up again and are a little surprised when she takes your hand, but she just leads you forward while chatting up a storm about how her uncle Mingyu is really tall and although he drinks the same kind of milk as the one you have in your cart, she prefers melon milk 
  • She asks you if you like flavored milk and you’re like “Um, yeah it’s pretty good!! But I just moved in so I’m only getting like,,, normal stuff right now”
  • “Moved in?” she tilts her head up at you and you nod and tell her you moved here from a far away place 
  • And she’s about to answer when you hear someone shouting her name and she goes “That’s my dad!!” 
  • So you both follow the voice and she calls him name when she sees him and he looks over with these wide eyes and jogs over
  • And he’s apologizing to you over and over but his eyes are on Soobin as he alternates between saying sorry and scolding her for running off 
  • And you’re like “Oh!! It’s,,, it’s okay,,,” but you’re a little taken aback because woah this dude looks young and like,,, really handsome 
  • “Soobin seriously you can’t keep running off like that,” Jihoon sighs as he crouches down in front of her, round glasses perched on the tip of his nose and his daughter uses the hand that’s not clutching your to push them back off
  • “But I made a new friend daddy!” she tells him and for the first time, Woozi looks at you fully 
  • And he’s immediately stunned by how,,, cute,,, you are and immediately stands up, clearing his throat nervously 
  • “Ah… sorry again, thank you for bringing her back to me,” he says quickly and you smile at him and tell him it was no problem
  • He introduces himself as Lee Jihoon and his daughter as Lee Soobin and you tell him your name and Soobin all matter of factly tells her dad that you’re new in town and insists that you shop with them
  • She tells you that his friends call him “Woozi” all the time and he’s like “Soobin Do Not”
  • And she just does her puffy-cheeked, hands-on-hips, fake-deep-voice impression of him and goes “Soobin Do Not” and it makes you and her both laugh
  • And it’s really cute because while Wooz is a bit shy to talk to you, his daughter as no problem keeping the conversation alive and asks you a million questions
  • But they’re all typical little kid questions like “What’s your favorite color?” and “What’s your favorite dog?” and “What’s your job?”
  • Every time you answer, she tells you her favorite, as well as Jihoon’s favorite too and like,,, she knows her dad so well it’s so cute,,,
  • When she tells you her dad is a “Pronumsher” and he gently corrects her and says it’s “Producer” you tell them both that it’s a very impressive career
  • And his ears turn a bit red as he looks away with a small smile and goes “ah,,, not really but thank you,,,” 
  • And after a few more questions Soobin is hmmmmming loudly as she tries to think of another one before she finally almost shouts “Ah! What’s your boyfriend’s name?”
  • You laugh a bit at her expression because it looks like she just had a revelation and kindly tell her you don’t have a boy or girlfriend and you don’t notice Jihoon side-eye you subtly when you say that
  • And after you finish your shopping and are saying goodbye, Soobin suddenly grabs your hand again and goes “I wanna play with you again!!” 
  • You look up at Jihoon a bit flustered and he hesitates before saying “Maybe,, since you’re new and all,,, we could give you a tour or something soon?” 
  • So you exchange numbers with Woozi and you go home and although you think about him from time to time the next couple days because he really was pretty cute you try to focus on unpacking
  • Besides,,, you doubted he was single and even if he was, he sounded busy,,, like a producer with a young daughter probably isn’t the guy looking looking for someone to date 
  • But after about a week, you see a text from him appear on your phone saying that he has a free day this weekend if you wanted him and Soobin to show you around
  • You paused for a moment, biting your lip and debating if you wanted to go through with it when you were certain you would just wind up forming a crush on the guy,,, but you agreed finally and worked out the details on where you guys were going to meet 
  • He lived in a small house about a block away from yours and you agreed to go meet him there the next day 
  • It was a sleepy kind of day, the sky gray (but you had checked three times to make sure it wasn’t going to left) and fog lingering in the hills, and you couldn’t help but feel nervous when you stood on Jihoon’s porch
  • You took a deep breath and knocked, smiling a little when you heard Soobin shout your name from the other side
  • Jihoon opened the door with Soobin clinging to his leg, a smile on her face as she looked up at you 
  • You greeted them both and stepped aside when Jihoon motioned for you to come in, and couldn’t help but grin a little when you saw the living room
  • It was clear that there was plenty of Jihoon’s personality in the room, a fireplace with the mantle decorated in photos and little statuettes, a TV hanging above that, little plants and ferns spread around to make the room smell a bit nicer, comfortable couches and a marble coffee table, big bookshelves lined with thick novels, a keyboard in the corner  a nice rug under all the furniture,,,
  • But there was definitely a child living here too, made obvious by the fact that the bottom two shelves on every bookshelf was full of children’s books, CDS, and movies, the photos of him and Soobin and some unfamiliar boys everywhere, the fact the one branch on both the ferns had a pink ribbon tied to it, the parenting books that took up an entire shelf, the toys on the floor, the princess blanket thrown on the couch, the stickers on the keyboard legs, the cluster of notebooks and dolls on the coffee table,,, it was too cute dammit 
  • “Sorry for the mess,” Jihoon apologizes and you wave it away
  • “You apologize to me too much, Jihoon,” you teased and found yourself completely charmed by the pink that formed on his cheeks. “Besides, I have friends who have kids too, this is clean compared to their houses”
  • He laughed a bit at that and told Soobin to go grab her coat from her room while he showed you the house
  • Just like the living room, although all the rooms showcased nice furniture and plenty of glimpses into Jihoon’s personality, it was still obvious that he was a dedicated father with a bright and enthusiastic daughter 
  • Soobin ran out with her red jacket on and took one of your hands and one of Jihoon’s and announced that she was ready to go and both you and him melted a bit at that 
  • With Soobin chatting up a storm again and demanding answers from the both of you, you and Woozi found that the air between you guys was much more comfortable that it was before 
  • Although you both turned bright red when a couple of older ladies complimented what a cute family the three of you made,,
  • But overall the day was just,,, so much fun 
  • You guys walked around downtown so he could point out all the good shops and restaurants, and Soobin insisted that you guys stop inside the bookstore so she could pick one out and she made you crouch down next to her as she stared at the bottom row of books because she wanted your opinion on what one to get
  • And when you all stopped to get some frozen yogurt she got a little on your nose and you wiped it off with a napkin and cleaned her hands up too and Jihoon felt himself soften at the sight 
  • When you went to the park, you and Jihoon were able to watch from a bench and get to know each other a little, and he told you about his tight knit group of friends that Soobin called her uncles and about his job
  • He casually mentioned “Typically one of them will watch them when I’m busy because they know being a single parent is hard” and you were like oh :) so :) he’s :) single :) huh :)
  • But you sympathized with him and he started asking about your job and where you moved from 
  • You two only stopped talking when Soobin called for you guys to look at her and when she finally ran up to you and grabbed onto your knees and said she was ready to go 
  • And when she was holding both your hands again, the three of you were off
  • After a long day of exploring, you guys decided to head back to Jihoon’s house, him offering you inside for dinner, and when Soobin gave you a hopeful look,,, you couldn’t say no
  • It helped that you really wanted to keep talking to Woozi too,,, he was just such an interesting person?? And so nice to you??? And really sweet with his daughter like,,,
  • When you arrived at Jihoon’s, Soobin sat in your lap and watched TV with you as Jihoon began to cook dinner, and it was clear she was starting to get a bit tired as she leaned her head against her shoulder
  • You caught Woozi looking over at the two of you with a smile from time to time and you always gave him a smile back, your heart fluttering a bit at the sight of him 
  • When he called that the food was done, you carried the sleepy Soobin to the table and smiled when she tried to wake herself up a bit to eat by shaking her head rapidly 
  • You and Jihoon did most of the talking during dinner, Soobin too tired and too busy eating to chime in very much
  • After dinner, Jihoon asked if you would stick around and wait while he put her to bed, and you agreed, returning to the couch to scroll through your phone and wait 
  • Jihoon returned once Soobin was asleep with juice boxes, saying he didn’t keep any wine in the house unless it was a brand meant for cooking so this would have to do instead
  • But instead of being annoyed, you laughed and tapped boxes with him while saying a small “cheers” and he found himself smiling to himself as you sipped from the outrageously tiny drink 
  • You guys talked for a long time after that, about anything and everything that came into mind, trying to keep quiet so as to not wake his daughter 
  • It wasn’t until the clock hit ten that either of you realized how late it was and you figured you should probably head home
  • As you were putting your coat on, you could see the hesitation in Jihoon’s face and asked him what he was thinking about
  • “Listen, (y/n)…” he said, taking a deep breath and you tilted your head. “I know we didn’t meet that long ago, and that me having a daughter complicates things for a lot of people I’m interested in, but I think you’re a really great person and I was wondering if you want to go on a date sometime?”
  • What else could you do but smile and eagerly say yes?

A/N: Let me know if you guys wanna see more single dad Jihoon, or anything else really because my requests are currently open!!
