ugh so long to wait now

What’s in your bag beard - Albus Dumbledore Edition

Dumbledore: I heard there was this new trend at my school, that everyone shows what they’re carrying around every day. Since I am the headmaster, I thought I should join in.

Dumbledore: They taste like liquid Sugar.

Dumbledore: Let’s go on.

Dumbledore: Another thing that’s very important to me:

Dumbledore: Music can be quite useful to ease up a tense situation.
I want to introduce you to someone.

Dumbledore: Obviously, a school as big as Hogwarts needs a lot of money, so it’s always good to have a Niffler or two with you.
Let me look for more.

Dumbledore: What the fuck is this?

Dumbledore: How could I forget about this?!


Bonus:

Dumbledore: Baby shoes. Not at all for nostalgic reasons

Dumbledore: Look how tiny they are!



((OOC: Dumbledore out.
In the usual Sami-style I’m late to the party. But you know? Save the best for last ;) Luckily my thread will probably not be the last of this series
Anyway special thanks to @kapitan5o​ for having this amazing idea! And my admiration to everyone who did this so far, y’all were incredibly creative!
Now I’ll shut up))

for the drabble thing: otayuri and 32?

#32: “I think I’m in love with you and I’m terrified.”

“I think I’m in love with you and I’m terrified.” Yuri blurted the words out before he could even process them. He hadn’t meant to tell Otabek, not yet. Not today, anyway. Yuri clasped a hand against his mouth as his eyes widened, unsure of what to do.

Otabek sat across the table from him. They were out on a not-date because Yuri obviously hadn’t deliberately chosen his outfit to be cat print free in order to seem cool to Otabek while they were out in St. Petersburg for Yuri’s birthday. It definitely wasn’t a date. It’s not like Otabek was wearing a nice cardigan and it wasn’t as if Otabek had flown all the way here so that he could spend time with Yuri for his birthday. It was one of the sweetest things someone had ever done for Yuri. And of course, it didn’t help the Russian’s growing feelings for the older teen.

Yuri wasn’t sure when he had started having… feelings for Otabek. It just kind of happened, as such things tend to do. All he knew was that somehow and somewhere in the past couple of months of daily video chats or phone calls, and of course the constant texting, Yuri fell. And boy, did he fall hard. Suddenly, he couldn’t get the sound of the Kazakh boy’s voice out of his head. Every time he closed his eyes, He saw Beka as if he was permanently burned into his eyes.

It wasn’t easy to figure out what was going on. Yuri’s heart kept skipping beats and he felt short of breath. Not to mention, he was distracted at practice. It wasn’t until Yuuri had pulled him aside to talk with him after practice one day that Yuri started to put the puzzle pieces together.

He was falling in love.

This couldn’t be happening to him, could it? No, it wasn’t happening. It was just a silly crush because Otabek was a couple years older than him and was super cool and was really attractive-

It was happening, and there was nothing that Yuri could do to stop it or fix it. Except for maybe tell the Kazakh teen, but that was too complicated. Then he had to worry about getting rejected entirely and left friendless once more, or worse. Yuri could get friendzoned and have to deal with all sorts of unrequited feelings. That would be horri-

“-ra? Yura, are you okay? You haven’t moved or said anything in two minutes.” Otabek spoke softly, worry creasing his brow.

Yuri blinked rapidly, realizing that he had gone into his own little world and slowly lowered his hand from his mouth slowly. He nodded once and mustered up the courage to speak, hoping his voice wouldn’t betray him. “Yeah, I’m… I’m fine. It’s just, that’s not what I wanted to say.”

Otabek cocked an eyebrow. “So you didn’t mean it?”

“No, no, no! I mean, yes? Ugh…” Yuri stumbled through his words, trying to recover before Beka thought he was lying to him. “I meant it! I just wasn’t expecting to tell you right now.”

“Oh.” He said softly, a gentle blush dusting his tanned cheeks.

“I’m sorry if I made things between us awkward…”

“Yuri.”

The sound of his actual name rather than a nickname startled the Russian. Beka almost always called him ‘Yura’, so what changed? What was wrong?

“As long as you have feelings for me and I have feelings for you, things could never be awkward between us.”

“Wait… You? You have feelings for me?” Yuri watched as Otabek nodded. “Really?”

His fears quickly dissipated as a smile appeared on Otabek’s face. “I’ve had the biggest crush on you since I saw you in Yakov’s training camp. I only realized that I was in love with you shortly after your exhibition skate.”

Yuri blushed. “And you’ve just been waiting to see if I returned those feelings this whole time?”

“I’ve known for a while, Yura. You weren’t exactly subtle about it once you realized that you had feelings for me. You got a lot more nervous when you talked to me, but it gradually disappeared and we were back to where we had been before you discovered your feelings. If anything, we started to actually flirt, though I don’t think either one of us really knew that we were.”

“So what does this mean for… Us?”

“I, for one, like the sound of ‘us’. Why don’t we start there?” Beka sat back in his chair, seemingly very content at how their not-date-turned-maybe-date was going.

“Like, boyfriends?”

“Yeah. Boyfriends.”

Yuri beamed. “Okay then.”

“So, are you going to be my boyfriend or not?” he smirked and it made Yuri melt.

“I think the answer to that is obvious, Beka. Of course I’ll be your boyfriend.” The younger teen rolled his eyes but had one of the biggest smiles Otabek had ever seen from him.

It was definitely a date.

A/N: sorry i took so long, like usual. been feeling unmotivated lately. but here you go! <3


You looked at the pocket knife in Burr’s hand, eyeing him suspiciously. He winked at you, twirling it around with his fingers. You were leaning on Madison’s arm, you head resting on his shoulder. He played with your fingers, not paying any mind to you and Burr.

“Why the hell are you spinning that pocket knife around? You’re going to poke your eye out,” Thomas said, moving away from his boyfriend. Burr looked up at Thomas, grinning.

“I have an idea.”

If It Means A Lot To You - Pietro Maximoff x Reader (April Song Challenge)

Words: 1930
Pairing: Pietro Maximoff x Reader
Featuring: Mentions Avengers
Warnings: ANGST ANGST ANGST
Summary: Based on the song If It Means A Lot To You by A Day To Remember, Pietro and you, a normal citizen, have been dating for two years. Recently, he is always away for his work, and it has been getting to you. Finally, someone reaches their breaking point.
Authors Note: APRIL SONG CHALLENGE! This month’s theme was I would write Angst…and Jadyn would write fluff. So yeah, it’s real angsty. But I love this song a lot…so heck yeah.

Pietro / Song Challenge / Full Masterlists

Ao3 / Jadyn’s Challenge


One would say it would be hard to be a normal person and date an Avenger, one that was enhanced as well. And while months ago you would have defended your stance, nights where you sat alone in your loft staring out into the city waiting for a call, you agreed with them.

Pietro and you had been dating for almost two years, and recently his place in the Avengers was becoming more needed. You weren’t anything like an Avenger, just a normal job and trying to get by. You started living together after a year, and had been living together for another year now. But living together was relative; he was gone majority of the time because of the duties of being a superhero.

He promised to call every other day, time depending on what he had going on. But you were worried, it had been three days with no sign that he was still alive. No calls from him or Wanda to alert you if anything happened, but you knew you couldn’t jump to conclusions. You read articles online to see if the Avengers were still fighting or if they were headed home, but there hadn’t been recent updates on the fight for days. No one had much idea what was going on with them.

You jumped when you heard your phone start to ring the Sonic themesong, indicating it was Pietro calling. “Finally!” You groaned and picked up the phone. “Hey!”

Hey darling,” Pietro said into the phone, a low and quiet voice, but you could hear the smile. “I hope you’re good tonight.

Moments. Chapter 7: Tag

Idea explained here

You can read all the parts here

(I’ve decided to put the prompts in the end from now on so it’s not like a spoiler or anything)


Chapter 7: Tag

She shook her head and rolled her eyes while she placed her phone on the bed. Noora was really wrong if she thought Sana was staying at home only so she could see Yousef. She wasn’t like that, she was a strong independent woman who needed no man and who could make her own choices. That didn’t mean she didn’t miss him, she kind of did. It was Tuesday and they hadn’t hanged out since Saturday. She had spent her Sunday studying for an exam she had on Wednesday and even though he had picked her up from school the previous day, like he did every Monday, they hadn’t have the chance to properly talk since she needed to be at home soon to study.

She heard them talking and laughing from her room, they were in the living room filming their new Hei Briskeby video. Maybe if she went downstairs she could see if they were finishing and they could hang out after that. Not like she couldn’t be without him, but it felt nice to be with him. That’s what boyfriends are for, right?

She applied some lipstick on and adjusted her hijab. She got out of her room and stopped by the living room door which was opened.

They were still filming. Elias, Mutta, Adam and Mikael were sitting on the couch while Yousef was sitting on the floor. She leaned on the door without making any sound, they didn’t even have to know that she was there, she could just stay for a little while and see what they were filming. But she wasn’t staring, and she still thought their videos were lame. She was just bored, that was all.

Yousef was looking at the camera while Elias explained to their public that they were trying to decide what they were going to do that day. Suddenly something caught his attention from the corner of his eye. Yousef looked at his right and saw Sana standing in the door looking at them. She seemed a little startled to see him looking at her, as if she had been caught doing something she didn’t want anyone to know. Yousef smiled widely at her and she muted a “hi” in response. When he didn’t look away from her she widened her eyes at him and titled her head trying to hide a smile. That only made him smile even wider.

“Yo, Yousef, Yousef” he heard Elias calling him “Yousef are you listening?”

“Huh?” Yousef said still looking at Sana

“What are you looking at…?” Elias asked following Yousef’s gaze “Oh, I see”

Sana blushed when she saw her brother looking at her. He chuckled and then looked at the camera.

“You see, my boy Yousef here is dating my sister. And she’s here right now so apparently he can’t stop looking at her” he explained

“Seriously, they’re disgustingly cute” Mikael said

“Every time they’re in the same room they look at each other as if they were alone” Mutta added

“No, we don’t!” Yousef protested

“Sana, sis, can you leave so he can concentrate?” Elias asked Sana

She nodded embarrassed and turned around to leave

“Wait!” Adam said “Why doesn’t she stay? She can be in the video, since we’re out of ideas anyway”

“Hmm, you’re right, we can do some boyfriend/girlfriend tag or something like that that people like” Elias agreed

“Not gonna happen” Sana said not caring if her voice was being recorded

“Oh come on Sana, now that you’re here you have to do it” Elias said

“Elias, I’m not appearing in one of your videos”

“Yousef, this is all your fault, convince her” Elias told his friend

“Come on Sana, it’ll be fun” Yousef said smiling

“No” she said shaking her head

“I’ll convince her” he said looking at the camera.

He stood up and walked towards her

“You’re not going to convince me” she said crossing her arms

“Sana please!”

“Yousef, I’m not going to do it”

“Oh babe, come on!” he almost begged

“Did you just call me babe?” Sana said shocked and amused at the same time

“No, I didn’t” Yousef said blushing

“Yes you did” she laughed “You’re so cute”

“I’m cute? I’m not the one that was staring at me from the door with this lovesick look”

“I was not staring” she said

“Yes you were, babe” he teased her

“Stop calling me babe” she said rolling her eyes

“Nah, I’m kind of liking it. I think I’m going to call you that from now on”

“Fine, then I’m calling you dork”

“Ha! Joke’s on you, you already call me that all of the time”

“You do realize that what you just said doesn’t make sense, right?” she said squinting.

“Whatever, you’re going to be in our video”

“I’m not”

“Please Sana, please, please, please, do this for me” he said taking her hands in his

It’s not going to work”

“Pleeeeease” he said pouting

“Fine. But no boyfriend/girlfriend tag”

 -x-

 

“Hey guys, so we managed to convince my sister to take part in today’s video and since she and Yousef are dating, we’re going to do the boyfriend/girlfriend tag” Elias explained to the camera

How had she ended like that? How had she let this happened? She was sitting on the floor next to Yousef. She looked at him, he was grinning like a kid. There was her answer, she was doing it for him.

“So here’s what we’re going to do. We’re going to ask you some questions about your relationship and about each other and you’ll have to answer at the same time to see if you agree. Understood?”

“It’s not that complicated, Elias” Sana said rolling her eyes

“My sister, a true sunshine” Elias said looking at the camera

“Okay, let’s start” Adam said “First question, how long have you two been dating?”

“Three weeks” both Yousef and Sana said

“Well, that was easy” Mikael said “Now, what is your song? 3,2,1 answer!”

“Kiss me by Ed Sheeran” they said

“Ugh, how can you be so cheesy?” Elias said acting disgusted

“It was the song that was sounding in a very special moment for us okay?” Yousef said

“It’s fine, we don’t need details” Adam said

“We were cooking Adam” Sana told him rolling her eyes

“Well, next question then. What were you cooking? 3, 2, 1, answer!” Mutta said

“Carrots” both of them said smiling at each other

“Wait, I know when that was” Elias said “I knew you were flirting with my sister!!”

“You totally interrupted us” Yousef said laughing “I hated you so bad in that moment”

“Next question is…who wins all your arguments? Wait, you don’t have to answer this, we all know is Sana” Mikael said

“Hey!” Yousef said offended while everyone laughed

“You know it’s true” Sana said

“Well you’re here filming with us, aren’t you?” he said raising his eyebrow

“Next question” Sana said glaring at him

“What pet names do you use for each other” Mutta asked

Sana and Yousef looked at each other for a couple of seconds before bursting into laughs.

“What…What’s going on?” Elias asked but they kept laughing nonstop “Whatever, you’re both stupidly in love, that’s clear. Okay people that’s all for today. We’ll see you in the next video. Subscribe, subscribe, subscribe!”

Prompts:

Hello I have a prompt! The first time they use petnames for each other, maybe something is happening and one of them just blurts a ‘babe’ (or something else really, could be any petname) and the other one is taken aback but pleased :)

Hey! I know you are quite occupied but I would really like to read something about Yousana being happily together and one day the boys are at the Bakkoush family filming a hey briskeby video, but all Yousef does is stare at someone behind the camera and that someone obviously is Sana, and Elias makes a joke about Yousef staring at his little sister, so the guys ask her if she wants to participate and after a little bit of convincing she accepts… thanks in advance!


Thanks for reading and I hope you’ve liked it

Meeting Robin ♥️ (Writing on mobile full of feels and happiness so might be a bit unstructured with pics and text lol)

Sooo I met Robin today at the Heroes & Villain Fan fest!! Aaaaaaaah! It was so amazing and he is a pure cupcake of kittens! As we know since before! Ugh. So me and my friend went right to his booth for the autograph! It took a long very worthy wait until he showed up ♥️♥️ And it felt so unreal to just see him IRL. Ugh he was so nice and cute. I came to the three first in line but then he had to go to photo op. And when he left from his chair we happened to make eye contact aaaah because he saw my shirt, the oswald’s club, and also my sidebar for like 2 years now heh, and he shined and said aaah I love your shirt! And gave me the cutest smile and a wink!! Omg! And i just got so hit by surprise and just heeeeh thank you so much!!! :333. So then we in line got these cupouns thing so we would get first in line when he would be back aftet op, so that was really nice! So then we went back a bit later and got to almost front. And so I took up my photo I wanted sign, one of my favs ever of Robin! And so his manager I think it was sat first to like structure stuffs and she was soo impressed by the pic haha like “woaaah that is an amazing pic where it’s from??” And I said it was one of my favs ever and she just yeaah it’s beautiful! THEN I got up to Robin aaaaah, and to get that eye contact was just so magical and he was smiling and shining like he always is uuuugh ♥️ So we said hii! and nice to meet you! And I told him here this is one of my absolute favorite pics of you!! Because it’s just so stunning and perfect aaaah. And he said it was a really nice picture! And asked my name and I told him so! And he smiled so nice and then we took the selfie and to get to just touch this amazing cupcake for a selfie hug, guess I was just a total blushing mess all throuh it lol. Then I said thank you so much and he said thank you and have a nice day and again how he thought my shirt was amazing :3.

Then it was the panel, which was lovely too and to see all the other casts too ♥️ But yas Robin is my fav as you might know heh. AND I CAN’T BELIEVE ALL THIS AND I FEEL SO HAPPY AND FUZZY INSIDE ♥️♥️He is the sweetest ♥️♥️

And yes that is an emoji on me, I prefer to stay lowkey faceanon :P But maybe some of you recognize me from my outfit anyway if you were there ;)

Ugh. the last thing I want to see right now is people making it seem like this fucking hug wasn’t disrespectful and awful.

Yes, I understand it might have been in character and it makes sense they hugged. But I don’t care, that is not the point. Making the first, and probably only hug, be like this is horrible.

Let people be upset about it without feeling guilty or stupid or irrational. Not everything is about rational analysis of scenes. Shipping is often about emotion. And after waiting so long for a hug, and being so disrespected by the show runners, we are allowed to be upset about this.

"Are we having twins?" (Grayson)

This wasn’t requested, but I got the idea, and thought it was cute. And I did one kinda like it with Ethan, so I figured I do this one with Gray. :)

————

You and Grayson had been together for about four years, and you were currently expecting. You’ve gone back and forth to the doctor’s, making sure that everything was okay and the baby was healthy. About the fourth time you went to visit your doctor, he told you that you were having twins.

“Oh my god, daddy is going to be so happy.” You said as you rubbed your belly. You decided to keep it a secret from Grayson until you knew the gender of the babies.

“Well, Ms. (Y/L/N), it looks like you’re having a boy and a girl.” Your doctor said during your next visit. “Congratulations.”

“Thank you.” You smiled. He handed you the ultrasound and you smiled down at it. You made your way back to your car and sat there for a minute, staring at your ultrasound, just smiling to yourself.

“I have the perfect idea of how I’m going to share this with Grayson.” You said. You drove to the nearest party supply store and picked up some balloons, five pink and five blue, a box big enough for them all to fit in, and a bunch of streamers and tissue paper.

“Hey, how much longer are you two gonna be out?” You text Ethan.

“About an hour or so. Why?” He asked.

“I have a surprise for Gray and just wanted to make sure I have enough time to set it up.” You replied. You explained everything to Ethan and he thought it’d be a good idea to record it for a video. You drove back to the apartment to set up Grayson’s surprise. You started by blowing up all the balloons and put them in. You threw the steamers and tissue paper to cover up the ballons, and wrapped the box in some gift wrap that you had in the apartment.

Just as you finished wrapping it up, you heard the door unlock and Ethan and Grayson walk in.

“Hey boys.” You said as they walked in.

“Hey (Y/N).” Ethan said hugging you.

“Hey baby.” Grayson said, giving you a kiss. “Hey my other baby.” He added, kissing your belly.

“I have something for you.” You said to Grayson. Ethan had returned to the living room with the camera and set it up.

“Oh, we’re gonna record it?” Grayson asked.

“Why not.” Ethan laughed.

“Here, sit down.” You said, taking him over to the dining room table. You pushed the box over to him and he gave you a confused look.

“What’s this?” He asked.

“Open it.” You said.

“‘To daddy, from baby Dolan,’ what is this?” He asked again.

“Grayson, just open it.” You said, annoyed.

“Sorry.” He laughed. He tore off the wrapping paper and opened up the box, throwing out all the tissue paper and the balloons floated out of the box, the blue ones first. “Oh my god, is it a boy?” He asked. You shook your head just as the pink ones started to come out. “Wait.” He said, giving you a look. “Why are there pink ones in there too?” He asked, getting excited.

“Why do you think?” You asked smiling.

“Oh my god. Are we having twins?” He asked. You smiled and nodded. “(Y/N)! WE’RE HAVING TWINS!” He cheered. He pulled you into his arms and hugged you tight. “Oh my god. We’re having twins.” He said, as he wiped tears from his eyes.

“We’re having twins.” You said with a smile. You handed him the ultrasound and he smiled wide.

“That’s them. Those are our little ones.” He smiled.

“Yep, those are our little ones.” You smiled.

“I can’t belive we’re having twins.” Grayson said.

“Yeah. More Dolan twins!” Ethan cheered. You and Grayson both laughed at him as he turned the camera off.

“How much longer do we have to wait till our little ones are here? I need them now.” Grayson said.

“Hopefully just four more months.” You said.

“Ugh, I don’t think I can wait that long.” Grayson whined.

* * *

Later that night, you and Grayson were in your room, getting ready for bed. You were laying down in bed, and Grayson came and laid down in the bed, his face by your belly.

“Hello my little ones, it’s your daddy. Your mommy and I can’t wait for you to get here, because we are so excited to meet you. We love you both, so much already. Good night babies.” He sad, kissing your belly.

“Gray, you’re so cute.” You said to him as he made himself comfortable next to you.

“You’re cuter.” He smiled, kissing you on the cheek. You both laid there, talking about babies until you both fell asleep.

Squad 4 barracks office.

After finishing her patrol of the Coordinated Relief Station, kotetsu Isane returned back to the squad barracks, “I’m back~!” she called out whilst opening the door of the office.

“Wel-come w-ack w-ig sis”

The younger sister Kiyone who was grappling with piled up paperwork on the tabletop lifted her face up and replied whilst her mouth remained stuffed with suzu castella*. (*Bell shaped Japanese sponge cake)

“Oh! Eating sweets during work again!”

“It’s fine! It’s only us! I need to consume enough sugar because I use my head for paperwork”

“You did that at the 13th division too right? Without eating sweets”

"No no, the amount of paperwork at the 4th division is different! I absolutely cannot do without eating this~”

Kiyone said whilst tossing the suzu castella up into the air, catching it with her mouth before eating it. She did not stop herself from eating even as Isane chided her “Ugh! Can you not spill any sugar on the documents?”

“Oh yeah, before coming here just now, I saw Kuchiki san and Abarai kun!”

“Hey, babygirl. How are you? Am I interrupting you from anything?” Gerald asks once I answer his call.
“Hey babe. I am fine, just checking some emails. You are not interrupting anything, don’t worry…” I giggle lightly, sitting back on my chair. I check on my agenda, seeing that I have just 10 minutes before my client’s press conference. I put my phone down and press the speaker button so I can pick up my stuff.
“Babe, you are on speaker. Don’t say anything weird. I don’t want people walking in hearing anything inappropriate…” I warn him and he laughs.
“Relax babygirl, I wasn’t planning to. I just wanted to ask if Ms. Bigshot has time tonight for her boyfriend.” He says, still laughing.
“Awww… Is my boyfriend complaining?” I ask him, laughing too.
“No, not at all. I know what happens when your clients complain and I don’t wanna risk my luck…” He replies. I chuckle and shake my head.
“Well, I always have time for you. What’s the plan for tonight?” I ask, grabbing my bag.
“I was thinking of a nice dinner at that place we went a few months back and we both loved. You know, the one with the amazing view…” He says and I smile.
“Yeah, I remember. The one that has that killer lasagna… Are we going to be just us 2?” I ask as I exit my office.
“Do we need more people to have fun, love?” He asks me, his voice sweet as honey.
“No, just us two, baby.” I reply and he chuckles.
“Ok then, I’ll make the reservation at 9? Does it sound good to you?”
“Yeap. I’ll probably be home at 7, so I have time to get pretty for you.”
“You are always pretty baby. ” He states and I blush.
“I am going to wear that dress you like, to be even prettier. ”
“I like all of your dresses. Which one are you talking about?” He laughs.
“It’s going to be a surprise. Babe, I gotta go, I have that press conference in a few minutes. See you tonight.”
“See you tonight babe…” He says before we hang up. I smile at the thought of finally spending some time alone with Gerald; with touring and promoting and my own hectic life, we barely ever have time together just for us. I mean, we are both so in love with each other, but we don’t have much time to spend together, just the 2 of us, in private.

After a full day at work, I barely have the energy to drive myself home. My feet hurt from my high heels and my head is throbbing from the headache that I got after running all day.
As I enter the house, I feel a sudden relief. Finally, I can get in my pjs and chill on my couch.
“Hello love!” G cheers once I enter the living room. I stare at him for a minute, taking in his looks; he looks polished and he is dressed so fucking nice, with his black skinny jeans and white fitting shirt, with the sleeves rolled up.
“Hey babe. You look nice…” I comment, plopping on the couch and kicking off my high heels.
“Thank you. I had to look nice, you know since I am going to go out with this goddamn goddess…. ” He replies smiling. He kisses my forehead and I bite my lip, feeling like a complete idiot for forgetting our plans for tonight.
“Shit, I forgot we are going out tonight…” I mumble, jumping up from my seat.
“Seriously? ” G asks a bit mad.
“Don’t get mad. I had so many thinks in my head. ” I exclaim.
“I am not mad. I am just a bit disappointed. I mean, you remember everything your clients have to do in a day, but you forgot about our date, which I told you about just a couple of hours ago. ” G says, frustrated.
“I know baby, I know. I am so sorry. I’ll go get ready now, ok babe?” I ask, pecking on his neck. He sighs and nods.
“Fine… I’ll wait here.” He says and sits back on the couch.

I run upstairs, quickly planning in my head the next moves. I reach the bedroom and go directly to the bathroom. I put my hair in a bun and pop an Advil to help me with my headache.
After I am done showering, I dry off and start with my makeup. After 30 minutes, I am ready and walking down the stairs.

“I don’t think I’ve ever gotten ready quicker than today. ” I comment, entering the living room.
“You look so good, I almost forgive you for forgeting our plans for tonight. Let’s go now, they are waiting for us. "He says, placing his hand on the bottom of my back as we begin walking to the frontdoor.

The restaurant is prettier than I remember, probably because it’s summer and everything is prettier in the summer. 

"Here’s to our summer…” I cheer, clinging my glass with Gerald’s.
“Here’s to us.” He replies before we both take a sip.
“How was work today?” He asks me after a while.
“Ugh, so tiring. I was running around all day long. I had one of the busiest if not the busiest day of this month… How was your day? Did you relax as you promised you would do after the tour?”
“Well, I run some errands and talked with my mom, but mainly I worked on our date… You know, try to make it perfect…” He replies, smiling from ear to ear.
“And you did. I feel so bad that you had to do it by yourself. I promise I am going t organize our next date, and it’s going to be epic."I promise.
"I really don’t mind. I just want to spend time with you.” He replies, rubbing my knuckles with his thumb. The waiter brings us our food, smiling at the two of us.
“Uh, I can’t wait to dig into that lasagna…” I moan, already salivating at the sight of my plate. Before I can even take a bite of my food, my phone rings with a notification.
“Excuse me. ” I say before I dig in my purse for my phone.
“Ummm, this is a bit important. Do you mind if I make a phone call?” I ask, a bit hesitantly. G sighs and motions me to go ahead.

The call took longer than I expected. Gerald looks unamused and his plate is already empty. He looks mad at me.
“Eat your food and let’s go.” He commands, motioning the waiter to come over. His voice is cold and he looks really angry.
“Gerald, I am sorry about the call. I didn’t mean to talk that long. But I don’t think that this should be the reason we ruin our night. I mean, we haven’t have time for us for a long time.” I apologize.
“Yeah, and we are not having time for us right now either. ” He replies, picking up the tab. He puts the money inside the small black tab and hands it to the waiter.
“You know what… I am not hungry.” I say getting up.

(Gerald’s POV)
The ride back home is quiet. She sits on her seat, being silent but looking mad. Her jaw is clenched and she is not even looking at me. I should be the one being that mad, my plans were those that got ruined by her work.
Before I even park the car, she is already unlocking the door. I stomp behind her the moment she is about to go upstairs. I grab her by the wrist and pull her close to me.
“Don’t you think you owe me an apology?” I ask her and she rolls her eyes.
“Don’t you think you should fuck off?” She asks me back.
“Your work ruined our date, not mine.” I reply.
“ It was a call. A fucking call. If you could just forgive that and move on with our date, we wouldn’t have to do this conversation now. ”
“I have forgiven you and your work so many times. ”
“Do you know how many times I did? How many times I had to deal with you and your fans while I sit back, on our dates? How many nights I wanted you here with me and you were miles away on tour? If you can’t forgive, one small phone call that happened once, I…. I don’t know if we can work this out. ” She says back, her eyes brimming with tears.
“(Y/N), what are… what are you talking about?” I ask her, my voice softer now. My stomach hurts.
“I don’t know Gerald. In a relationship, both partners should be willing to compromise. I knew well what I signed up for when I got in this relationship with you. You did too. You knew that I would have to work until late at nights and that I would have to pick up my phone 24/7. Yet, we both agreed to do this. I still want to be with you. Even now that you are touring for almost half a year. I don’t know about you though. You don’t seem so willing to deal with all of this. ” She says and I gulp.
“You know what. Maybe we should take some time apart. Take some time to reconsider our relationship. I am going to stay at (Y/B/F/N). She’ll come to pick up my stuff tomorrow. Take as much time you need before to come find me.”
“(Y/N)..”
“Gerald, no. I don’t need to hear anything from you right now. Take care of yourself. ” She says before she kisses my cheek and walk towards the door, still in her date-night outfit.

I watch her walk away, I watch her walk out of the door. I watch her shut the door, and still I can’t move my feet and go after her. I want to. But my feet stay glued to the floor. I am a coward. I am a dumbass. I watched the woman of my life walk away from me, maybe permanently. And I still didn’t do anything. I fucked up.
Something inside me breaks. I just want to go after her, grab her by the waist, kiss her to eternity. And I just stand there.
But something inside me is broken. What the fuck am I supposed to do with this engagement ring?

anonymous asked:

ugh so much drake last chapter and now maxwell in this one...when will we get to see hana again?

this right here. this is the biggest, most eternal, most relatable mood of all time.

see, i’m hoping and praying that the beaumont bash next chapter will be our chance to finally, finally kiss hana, because i’m all for the emotional aspects of a relationship but i have been waiting so. long. and i have evidence, too! check it out:

  • in this week’s chapter we had the option to kiss drake/confess our feelings in a more humble setting. from what i’ve seen (i didn’t spend diamonds on it, but there are plenty of screenshots around), it felt very natural to drake’s character and the nature of his relationship with mc.
  • so, by extension, i think our epiphany with hana will come next chapter. think about it: this entire time, we’ve seen how hana’s been trained to define herself by courtly life. it may not be of her own volition, but she’s most in her element during these grand social situations, where she can utilize her knowledge of etiquette and measure her actions and reactions very carefully.
    • i don’t mean to get angsty here, but of the three obvious lis, hana tends to open up the least. i’d argue she represses even more than drake, because you can very clearly see when he’s trying not to feel something, but hana so artfully disguises her true feelings by being sweet and polite and, yes, passive. one of the first instances we got of her breaking out of her shell was the scene where she told off her mother. and even then, that didn’t involve mc, it involved a long-standing conflict with her parents that she’s had plenty of time to struggle with.
  • anyway! we’ve already been beaten around the head with the fact that the beaumont bash is the last big event of the season… before the coronation. the ladies will all be in peak form, vying desperately for the prince’s attention, dressed in their finest attire. (exhibit a: the somewhat garish ballgown. it’s a finale outfit if i’ve ever seen one.) and lady hana lee will be pulling out all the stops, because why wouldn’t she? it’s what she’s been groomed for. it’s what she’s here for.
  • and then she defies the court, cordonia, and the world, breaks all etiquette and protocol, and realizes she’s been falling for a beautiful girl who’s supported her every step of the way. it’s exactly what her parents would never have wanted. it’s the polar opposite of the perfect life she’s been pushed to obtain. but hell if it doesn’t make her happy.
  • and if that isn’t poetic justice, i don’t know what is.

Packed lunch? Check.

Sobbing child, clinging on to your leg, who didn’t want to start school? Check.

Sense of guilt that sobbing child hadn’t been able to meet her new teacher when all the other kids had, because you couldn’t get the time off work to attend the open day, and there’s no other parent around to take her? Oh yes, check.

Usual sense of guilt at being a single parent, assuaged by adding an extra chocolate biscuit to lunch bag? Check. Sigh.

Additional guilt at attempting to overcome first guilt with bribery and food. *Deep breath*. Yeah, got that one covered.

Overwhelming urge to turn to drink even though it’s not yet 9am? Check and CHECK.

Happy Easter!

So since it’s Easter and I go back to school tomorrow (ugh) I decided to, make a short one shot for my favorite fan artist on here… @bunny-yams ! Hope this doesn’t seem odd I just love your art! 

~~~~~

Nights at the office lately have been long and almost never ending for Alex. Course, to him, it was worth it, saying as he now had Sunday and Monday off to spend with his family. He had arrived home a bit late last night, seeing Thomas asleep on the couch.

He had waited till Pip had gone to sleep, hiding some colorful plastic eggs inside and outside of their house. Alex almost stepped on one, narrowly avoiding it as he placed his case down.

The TV was on quiet, a big purple basket sat on the opposite couch, coloring books, pencils, paper, chocolates and a new little pair of converse in it. A small stuffed puppy sat in front, paws crossed and eyes staring innocently.

Alex smiled at his husband, running a hand through his hair softly, placing a kiss on his forehead. Thomas stirred, eyes peering sleepily at Alex.

“Hey baby,” He sat up, smiling at his husband.

“Hey,” Alex crawled onto the couch, Thomas laying back down as he pulled the shorter of the two onto his chest, wrapping his arms around his waist.

“How early do you think he’ll be up?” Thomas’ voice was muffled, face buried into Alex’s hair.

Alex snorted, “Crack of down? Maybe earlier.” 

Thomas nodded, letting his head lay down on the pillow, Alex’s laying between his collar bones, eyes shutting slowly, the soft sounds of Moulin Rogue playing on the TV.

~     ~     ~

“DADDY! PAPA!” Alex and Thomas jumped, Alex’s head hitting Thomas’ chin, both men wincing as they tried not to fall off the couch in vein.

The two, tangled in the back blanket, sat up, Alex between Thomas’ legs as Philip ran downstairs, giant grin plastered on his face.

“Daddy! Papa! Look! The easter bunny came!” 

Alex smiled, Philip jumping into his arms, curls bouncing around wildly. “I see Pip, look, what did he put in your basket?” 

Looking curiously where Alex was pointing, his eyes lit up and he rushed forward, immediately grabbing the stuffed puppy and holding it to his chest. “I’m naming them Burp!”

Thomas snorted and Alex raised his eyebrow. “Burp?”

Philip nodded eagerly, setting the puppy down carefully to go through his basket. “Ooo! More paper and pencils! Daddy! I can make more drawings for you and - and Uncle Jemmy!”

“That you can darlin’.”

“Chocolate!”

“For dessert Philip!” He pouted, placing all the items in a neat pile. He sat on the couch, bouncing up and down.

“Am I allowed to find eggs now?”

Alex smiled, standing up and stretching, Thomas following suit. “Do you not want breakfast first?” Philip shook his head, determined look on his face.

Thomas laughed, “At least let Papa and I have some coffee.” Philip growled softly under his breath, and Alex laughed.

“My little tiger, it won’t be longer than five minutes.”

“Five minutes is too long! I could find a billion eggs in five minutes!”

“A billion? You think the easter bunny hid a billion eggs!” Philip considered then shrugged.

Thomas and Alex shared an amused look before Thomas gave in. “Alright darlin’, we can go easter egg hunting first, then breakfast and coffee.”

“Yes!” He fist pumped, diving behind the couch to grab his basket, running out already having a pink egg in his Batman basket.

“Daddy! Papa! Let’s go! More candy! And money!” He ran around the living room, missing a few but after Alex and Thomas “subtly” hinted at them. By the time he collected all eight from the living room he’d run into the kitchen.

“Did you put money in any of them?” Alex whispered to Thomas, who shrugged in return.

“Some change, a few ones, maybe a five? C’mon baby, what’s a six year old going to do with money?”

Alex rolled his eyes, following as Philip raced out of the house, running to search in their garden.

“Do you think he buried any?” Philip questioned, voice innocent as he grabbed one off of his swing.

“Um, I doubt it.” Alex brushed it off.

Philip’s eyes widened, “But we don’t know for sure!”

Alex said nothing as he sat back up a few decorations Philip bumped into, turning around when Thomas yelled at Philip.

“What is - “ He cut himself off, laugh busting out of him.

Philip had - in the two seconds Alex had been turned - begun digging in their small flower area, face smudged with dirt, hands filthy as he stared innocently at his dads.

“What?” He wiped under his nose, leaving a smudge of dirt, “We didn’t know if they planted an egg here!”

Alex covered his mouth to keep from laughing as Thomas tried to come up with a way to explain why he knew without giving away the truth. “Um, well I know he didn’t.”

“Yeah but how?”

“Well, the easter bunny, along with Santa and the Tooth Fairy are friends with parents. They tell them what they got the kids and where they hid eggs so the parents didn’t accidentally do the same thing.”

Philip nodded in understanding, standing up and brushing a tiny bit of dirt from him. “Okay! Um, sorry about your garden Papa…”

“It’s okay Pip,” Alex laughed, “Let’s just go finish finding the eggs.”

Hope that was cute! Anyway, I have a few more requests I will get to work on soon!

Also, hope you liked it @bunny-yams sorry it’s not the best (I’m no Lin with words lol)

Tasmanian Devil

fridges-of-neverland said:

I have returned! The first imagine I requested was AMAZEBALLS and, because of that, I would like to request a new imagine! Can I please have an imagine where the reader lives in Australia and has a pet Tasmanian Devil which she raised since it was shunned by its mother and, when she shadow takes the reader to Neverland, Pan discovers the TD, which is really aggressive to strangers, and the reader explains why she has a TD and lots and lots of Fluffy McFluffface? That would be amazing! Thank you!

 

Warning/s: idk really. carnivorous animal

Requested

summary: you have wild pet that reminds you of Pan

“C’mere buddy” you called out to your pet from across the room. He was eating something that looked like a rat? Well, you weren’t surprised. He is a Tasmanian Devil and Tasmanian Devils are carnivorous. They have really pointy teeth so they’re dangerous. But why do you have it as a pet?

~flashback~

Y/N was walking in the park with her friend when she heard a cry coming from a nearby forest. “You heard that?” Y/N asked her friend. “Yeah sounds like an animal dying” Y/N’s friend laughed. Y/N glared at her friend and started walking towards the direction where the crying was heard from.”Woah, wait! Where are you going?”Y/N’s friend asked.”I’m gonna see if that animal is okay.” Y/N said. “But that animal could be dangerous, Y/N!” Y/N’s friend warned. Y/N shrugged in response and just kept walking.”Okay ugh, well, I’ll just wait here” Y/N’s friend called out.

Y/N followed the cries of the poor animal and found a small creature crying. It looks like a newborn and no doubt, his mother left him there. Y/N felt sad because she knows what it feels like to be left. She herself was left by her mother. Her father left them for another woman a long time ago so she has no one now. She’s just living by herself because she doesn’t want to be put in an orphan. She picked the crying creature up and cooed it. Immediately, the creature stopped crying and pressed itself against Y/N’s hands. Y/N smiled. “Don’t worry. I got you.”

 ~flashback over~

The Tasmanian Devil crawled over to you and hopped on your hands. It was a cute little thing but it can be dangerous as hell. You continued to play with Axel, the Tasmanian Devil, when the glass on your window crashed and made a loud sound. You quickly hid Axel in your pocket and stood up to see what or who destroyed your window.

You looked down to see nothing. You raised an eyebrow in confusion. ‘What the hell?’ you thought. When you were about to walk away and find something to cover your window up, something touched you. You looked back to the window just to be faced with a black shadow with glowing yellow eyes. You sucked in a breath. “Jesus Christ! The hell are ya?” You yelled. The shadow ignored you and began pulling you out the window. “Bloody hell mate!” you yelled and tried pulling your hand back. It was no use though, because soon, the shadow had you in his tight grip and is flying towards the sky.


When the shadow dropped Y/N’s body in the middle of the jungle, Y/N grunted and stood up, looking up at the retreating shadow. She looked around her and just saw a bunch of trees. She sighed. She jumped in surprise when a voice was heard from behind her. “I see we’ve got a girl”. Y/N turned around and saw a boy, not older than her, standing there. “Who’re ya?” you asked, your Australian accent clearly noticeable. The boy smirked at her accent.

“Oh I’m Peter. Peter Pan. And you are?” Peter asked. Y/N laughed. “I’m Y/N and are ya drunk’r somethin?” Y/N asked. Peter frowned. “No. Why would I be drunk?” Peter asked. “Because ya think you’re Peter Pan. And what? We’re on Neverland?” Y/N laughed. He smirked. “Yes. Yes we are.” and then he blew something on Y/N’s face which made her feel dizzy and sleepy causing her to fall and Peter catching her just in time.


You groaned and sat up from your bed. Or so you thought. You looked around and noticed that it wasn’t your bedroom. And then you remembered Peter. You sighed and felt your pocket. Axel wasn’t there. You stood up in panic and looked for him. You climbed down the tree house you were in and found a bunch of boys running away from something. Axel. “Axel!” you called. He snapped his head towards you and ran towards you. You caught him in your arms and hugged him. The lost boys looked at the both of you in confusion. “What?” you asked. Peter appeared in front of them and looked at you. “How did you do that?” he asked. “Do what?” you replied. He pointed at Axel. “That creature basically took one finger each from my lost boys and when you called for it… It just skipped over to you.” Peter said in amusement. You looked at Axel and smiled. “He’s my friend. You guys basically kidnapped me. Axel was just trying to protect me” you looked back at Peter. He raised an eyebrow and reached for Axel. Axel showed his pointy teeth and growled at him. Peter withdrew his hand and you laughed at his expression. “Don’t provoke it if you still want your fingers on your hands.” He looked at you “Why is it so aggressive?” he asked. You shrugged “He’s just protective, I guess” He just nodded in response.


After a while, you got closer to Peter. You knew more about him and he knew more about you. You walked over to him and sat beside him. You got Axel on your lap and you brush your hands against his head while he slept. “Well he’s nice when he’s sleeping” Peter scoffed. You laughed. “You two are exactly similar so stop complaining about him being all..” You trailed off. “How are we similar?” he scoffed. “OH you know.. He’s cute but he’s dangerous. He fools others into thinking he’s this innocent cute little creature but he’s really deadly. But not everything about him is bad. He’s protective. He protects those who are important to him and has a soft spot for them. You know? He’s different to certain people. For example, he’s different to me because I took care of him and so I earned his soft spot.” you spattered out things. Peter looked at you in astonishment. “You think I’m cute?” he smirked. Your eyes widened as your cheeks turned red. “I ugh.. No.. I mean.. I’m not saying you’re not cute but.. ughh.” Peter laughed at your flustered face. “You’re cute when you’re all flustered. Actually, you’re cute in general” he smiled. You looked at him and you stared at his eyes. “You’re right” he said. “We are similar. Almost too similar because you earned my soft spot too.” he chuckled and kissed the tip of your nose.

Noah: Ugh, Eliana I feel like such a dirt bag… Why wait so long to tell me? I could have help…
Eliana: How? There really was nothing for you to do Noah… I didn’t know until much later on and then the last few weeks I’ve been trying to figure out how to tell you. I thought you would be mad…
Noah: Ha! What? Mad? Why would I be mad? Eliana… I’m surprised. I’m not mad. And I’m wondering what you want to do now?
Eliana: It’s your decision too…
Noah: A little, I guess. I want whatever you want Eliana. 

Trolls thing I'm writing

Ok so I’ve finished the first chapter of a Trolls thing I’m writing which I’m calling “Night and Day” (vague title I know), I plan on unloading it to Archive, I just haven’t yet. This literally takes place right after the movie.. Like right after. Bare with me, I’m not a writer. Grammer is my enemy and words aren’t good friends of mine either. Oh and it typed this on my phone so I’m now realizing the “thought italics” aren’t showing up on tumblr so I apologize if some sentences don’t come off as thoughts, but here’s the first chapter of “Night and Day”.

Giggling.

Yes, Branch was sure “giggling” was the appropriate word to describe the loud strange hiccup like laughs currently escaping his mouth. It’s not that he’d never heard a giggle before, knowing Poppy all his life made that an impossibility. This, however, was the first time he could remember hearing himself do it. This felt foreign to him. Absurd even. But he just couldn’t help it…nor did he seem to care. From high up on their elevated mushroom platform, Branch now gripped his sides as the laughter overtook him, transferring a giddy energy to his rhythmic feet as they watched their weird new moment-ruining cloud friend plummet to a fate unknown, the product of being tandem high fived out of the sky by the two trolls.

He’ll be fine. He’s a cloud after all.

“I still don’t get the whole socks with no shoes thing.” He smirked. Poppy looked at him quizzically, and then down in the direction the cloud guy fell, genuinely pondering the statement for a moment. “Well, if you’re up in the sky most of the time… Why would you need shoes?“ she quipped with a smirk. A quiet “Huh.” was all he could muster, a tad baffled by the unexpected logic in the joke, to which he really had no argument for. “I guess when you put it like that…” he mused, cracking a half smile. With a comforting new sense of relief and contentment, he allowed a few more precious chuckles with the newly crowned queen. What was the harm anyway? Unless Smidge dropped them of course… Naw, this is probably just another day at the gym for her. He could let his guard down, for once. They were safe from the Bergens.

… For now. he allowed the troubled thought, but only for a moment, he was too preoccupied by his current reality to let his old survivalist paranoia fully take hold, all while blissfully unaware that their laughter was shifting dangerously close to silence. Too close. Too late.

They were alone again.

Holy hair, how long can Smidge keep this up? This is craz… wait. Why is it so quiet…? Uh oh… Oh no-oh no-oh-oh no!! Uh-uh-uh.. C’mon Say something to her, sticks for brains! Ugh! You’ve only spent THE LAST FEW DAYS ALONE WITH HER and had no problem talking to her then. Aaaaahhhh…

While Branch’s mind was about to spontaneously combust, it was Poppy who finally broke the prolonged silence. “I can’t believe I finally got to hear your laugh.” she paused, smiling off in the distance before turning to meet his gaze. “You have a nice one.” She concluded. Letting those electric candy eyes linger on serene sky ones for a moment.

I do?… She thinks- His eyes widened in shock, his mouth tightened. Heat engulfed him as the dark violet blush that flooded his face suddenly, seemed to set off the few glittering freckles he had, like a chain reaction of tiny firecrackers across his cheeks.

Well now you have to say something.

Tourmaline eyes came back for another visit, paralyzing his in the process.

Silence.

This is weird. I don’t like this. UGH… Just say it. He took a moment and swallowed. “I can’t take all the credit, I learned from the best.” He said, holding her gaze. Then, immediately elbowing her to drive his point home, followed by that sarcastic smirk, that could only belong to Branch.

“Awwww! That’s so sweet.” she exclaimed briefly, before regaining her composure. “but nice try!” She shot up an eyebrow. “You can’t just teach someone how to laugh… It’s just something that’s already inside them.” she said, reaching up to ruffle the front part of his recently taller, not to mention more colorful, hair.

The sudden sensation of fingers through his locks, and momentarily touching his scalp, caused Branch to freeze.

Does she like my hair? He beamed, cheeks darkening a bit more at the thought. Nah, she’s probably just as weirded out by it as I am. He scoffed. Maybe she’s checking to see if it’s real.

He got his bearings again. “Well, either way, it wouldn’t be possible… w-without you.” He managed, eyes darting away from her, sheepishly looking off in the distance, before eventually finding the courage to turn back to her again. The pink fire in her eyes still blazing.

I wonder if I should… Does she want me to…

“Wow.” she said, sounding truly in awe.

“Hmm?” he put his previous thought away, wondering and fearing how this moment could get any more perfect.

“I just can’t wrap my hair around it,” she started, eyes on his, and yet somewhere off in ‘cupcakes and rainbows’ land as well. “It’s all just so… surreal I guess.” He listened intently, a patient, albeit perplexed look on his face as she continued. “Like wow!… You’re just soooo genuinely nice, and I just… I just can’t believe, I-I mean… after all this time…”
She leaned a bit into his space, causing him to flinch slightly.

What’s.. happening?! Is she-

“that you’d end up being…” her cheeks flushed, and she gently took his hand, pulling him even closer. Branch’s eyes widened.

OH MY GAH!!

Poppy’s smile grew wider “… like the greatest friend I could ever have!!” she all but yelled before pulling him into a bone crushing, and almost as equally, soul crushing bear hug.

His breath was lost… for more reasons than one, maybe forever for all he knew.

Friend.

The moment it took for Branch to pick up the pieces of his heart, felt like an eternity, but eventually, he slowly brought his arms up returning the hug, with understandably less enthusiasm and strength than his captor.

A single word relentlessly looping in his head.

“I… uh.. I.. yeah.” he cleared his throat, brushing it off as best he could. “W-who’d have thought?” he let out a small, strained laugh, doing his best to hide the fact that it was completely forced.

…Too good to be true… friend… of course just friends. … Stupid. How could you be so STUPID? Why in the world would you think you’d be something more? No! You don’t deserve that… her.. not after how you’ve treated her, what you’ve done. Hugs and pretty new colors don’t right all those wrongs.

This… this is for the best. You’d probably end up hurting her somehow. You’re cursed.

He steeled, bracing himself for whatever this new hell had to offer. Wanting desperately to just get as far away as possible, but… she was so close to him now, and he found it impossible to pull away.

Not just yet.

Hell can wait.

For the moment, he brought his queen closer, hugged a little tighter, savoring paradise for as long as he could. Defying inevitability, if only for now. Being so close allowed Branch an opportunity he did not pass up. With great stealth, he turned his head toward hers, his nose nestling in magenta hair before greedily inhaling her scent. Whether or not she noticed this, she made no mention.

Why does she have to smell so good? Like, if roses were candy…

“This is nice.” Poppy hummed and squeezed tighter.

You have no idea.

“Seeeee, Hugs aren’t so bad.” she teased, eventually breaking the hug, much to his dismay. “Heh, I never said they were.” he said flatly. She deadpanned. Well, as best she could anyway, that smile always betrayed her. “Well you suuure fooled me.” She sassed, unconvinced. His ears started to droop a bit with guilt.

She has a point.

“It’s uh.. it’s just hard to explain.” He sighed, unable to come up with any other words to help him out. Her expression softened. “Weeell.. maybe you can try explaining it me sometime.” She offered, earning a smile from him. “Besides, it’s not like you can go running off to your bunker like always, not at the moment anyway.” She pointed out. Realization widened Branch’s eyes.

Oh. Yeah.

He paled, fear, panic and anxiety threatening to rear their ugly heads. His old friends. Always interrupting his life like uninvited guests. He wondered if he’d ever be rid of them. Probably not. One thing was certain though: He had to get outta here!!

His gaze traveled downward and landed on the giant mushroom on which they stood, absentmindedly tracing it’s colorful designs with his eyes. A troll, momentarily forgotten, now resurfacing in his thoughts.

Smidge.

“Y-yeah.” He fretted, scratching the back of his head. “You know, Smidge is probably starting to get tired.” He deflected “Plus I’m getting kinda dizzy, I think it’s time to head down.. bud.”

Did I just call her bud?

“Y-uh.. Yeah! I mean this is Smidge we’re talkin’ about here.. but yeah, we should probably go back.” She agreed, the slightest hint of reluctance in her voice. She stared at him for a moment, a playful smirk stretching across her face.

“What?” he questioned, confused.

“Are you suuure you didn’t think hugs were bad? Cuz you use to duck ‘em like they were poisonous snakes.” she smirked. “Like, there were times when we’d pretend to be like.. a Frankenstein version of you, runnin’ around shouting ‘HUGS BAD!’ grrrr ‘SINGING, DANCING BAD!’ grrr.” She finished in her best monster voice to emphasize the joke.

“Geeee… good to know.” he huffed, rolling his eyes, that familiar sarcastic edge to his words. Poppy’s smile faltered, filling Branch with instant regret.

“Branch, I’m sorry!” she blurted out. “I didn’t mean-“

“No.. I get it.” he interrupted. “I know what I am… Was… Whatever.” he sighed. “Alright, brace yourself.” he advised suddenly before loudly stomping down on the mushroom platform three times, figuring that was the best to alert Smidge to start lowering them. He wondered why she even bothered with the gesture in the first place, it’s not like they needed alone time. Why did she do it? She couldn’t be as blind as him.. right?

Poppy just stood there, seemingly ignoring his instructions. A sympathetic look on her face. “Branch, don’t be so hard on yourself.” she comforted, lightly placing her hand on his arm. He pulled up a confident smile for her sake. “It’s cool, I’m fine.” He lied.

“WOA- AHH!” he yelped as the platform jerked abruptly, unsteadying them. Instinctively, he grabbed her hand. “Poppy, you okay?” he asked, crouching a bit as the platform started lowering slowly. “All good here! Smidge does this sort of thing a lot.” she laughed.

He chuckled in agreement, postponing the arduous task of trying to piece his life back together after losing everything.

Again.

‘GRANDMAAAAA!!!’

‘BRAAAAACNH!!!’

He winced as voices from his past taunted him. Ghosts haunting his mind. Luckily her sugared voice snapped him out of it. “Hey, so.. uh, being that we’re trolls and all… there’s probably gonna be a party tonight, or some form of celebration…” she hinted.

“Riiight…” he drawled out, confused. “Weeell.. are you gonna come to this one?” she pleaded. He arched an eyebrow, “I suppooose… if it would please ‘Her Majesty’.” he smirked. Poppy grimaced, her adorable features scrunching up in disgust. “OOOH NO! NOPE-NOPE-NOPE! I am puttin’ a stop to that RIGHT NOW!” she threatened as Branch snorted at her lack of an assertive tone. “And yes,” she composed herself. “yes it would please me.” she admitted. “Then I’ll be there.” he returned, with a wink.

She stared dumbfounded for a second before shrieking with joy, causing him to cup his sensitive ears.

Ugh. This was going to be a looong night.

The platform jerked again suddenly as the speed increased, causing Poppy to stumble completely… only to land in Branch’s already prepared arms. She looked up, surprised eyes meeting each other.

Or was it?

Yeah, maybe it wouldn’t sooo bad, he considered as his arms were suddenly cradling the pink queen. It was a nice feeling. That is until that stupid platform jerked once more.

“AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!” he screamed as they plummeted due to the downward speed rapidly picking up in pace. Poppy seemed to be taking it with a little more grace than him as they held on to the edges… and each other, trying to endure the rest of their.. now very direct route back to the ground.

“DAAAAAMMIIIT SMIIIIIIIIIDGE!!” he yelled, he was gonna be sick.

Please don’t throw up on Poppy. Please don’t throw up on Poppy. Please don’t throw up on Poppy.

Rev squad, all eating icecream together (I forgot the prompt number)

(Rev Squad 14) “I found you–Ordering ice cream for us both, and spilling yours”

Alexander didn’t know peace of mind even if he was to be put in a coma. Spring Break had come full swing and well other high schoolers were going away for vacation, having parties, getting LAID he was at home. Working on school work, why? Because reality just hit Hamilton last summer. Fun was fun but fun didn’t get him money. Fun didn’t get him noticed or success…of course he loved his pool of friends but he was out to make his future.

“Alex…” John peeked over his shoulder and glanced at the smaller teen in the back seat. His body shaking around as the car wiggled over potholes along the road. It was Spring Break and his friends had to nearly break into his home and drag him out by the binder. Alex didn’t respond to John, he sat there with his nose in his work. “Glad to see you’re hanging out with us, since, ya know, Spring break is almost over” John smiled but there was a sourness to his voice.

“Uh huh, that’s nice John.” Alex mumbled only catching some of what his best friend had said.

“Truly, you’ve been a joy this whole car ride. I’m starting to think the binder is part of your face.”

“Whatever you say, John.” He mumbled again, scribbling as he swayed with the car. John’s eyes narrowed as he glared at Alex’s reflection through Herc’s rearview mirror. Beside Alexander, the tall and muscular arm of their Frenchman friend wrapped around Alex’s slender, studious shoulders.

“Don’t be too hard on him John” Laf gave John an easy smile staring up at the mirror; he placed his chin on the top of Alex’s head. “He’s working hard, we should be more supportive, no?” he mused as their fiery little friend had a side to him that was almost obsessive. He obsessed over work and what he had to get done. It worried his friends, his very close, friends.

John didn’t ease up, the entire spring break session Alex had spent it cooped up in his house doing work. He missed him, they all missed him. It wasn’t fair but for the sake of not ruining their day while it had just begun he changed tunes. “Are we almost there, Herc?” John bounced in the passenger seat. “Are we? Are we?”

The hulking driver chuckled a bit, “almost, just sit tight.” He shook his head taking another long turn. The turn forced Alex to shift too far and his pen rolled off the paper. He watched as a line now stretched from one corner of his paper to the other ruining the sentence he had just finished. “A-Ah whoops” Hercules smiled weakly while John cackled in his seat.

With a resound and defeated, “ugh” Alex slammed his binder shut and tucked the pen behind his ear. “So, where exactly are you all dragging me to that couldn’t wait until I was done?” He frowned realizing just then they weren’t in the city.

John nearly did a 180, his body shifting out of his seat and turned all the way around to face Alex with a glowing smile. He missed that smile of John’s. “The ice cream place out of town opened up for the season today! Best ice cream in ALL THE LAND” John howled out the open window. His curls flopping around as the wind through his words back at him.

Alex exchanged French words with Lafayette, “seriously, you dragged me out here for ice cream? We could have gone to Dairy Queen.”

Lafayette’s naturally bedroomy, half lidded eyes softened. Alex felt warm staring into them so he focused on something else. John’s sunny smile? No that also made Alex feel too uncomfortably warm. Perhaps Hercules’s robust and bountiful laughter? Nope, there was no escape other than the window and the image of greens as they sped past trees. “We’ve just missed you is all, sweet lion.” He rubbed his chin against the stop of Hamilton’s hand. “Alexandre, when did you last take a bath?” Laf teased noting his hair was on the greasier side.

“Shut up” Alex hissed turning back to English. John eyed the back seat just in time to watch Hamilton swat Laf’s smirking face away from him.

The car stopped into a small parking lot of a tiny ice cream stand who’s sign had recently taken down as they were open for the season. “YESS” John sprung out of the car and immediately went to the list of flavors and toppings.

“Kid has been waiting for this all year.” Hercules chuckled, hanging back with Hamilton who was strangely sluggish. “We come here all the time.”

“I know why is it so important we come here just as it opens for the spring?”

“You know this is John’s last spring with us, Ham…” Mulligan mumbled a bit. “I know that’s why you’ve been stuck up in your room, working the pain away.”

“Oh please, John moving is not painful! We’ll still talk!” Hamilton hissed, he felt his stomach churn a bit. The idea of John leaving left nothing but a vacant spot in his chest. He pursed his lips trying to keep his mood in check as he approached the ice cream counter. Lafayette decided to go with the American classic banana split and Hercules indulged in Rocky Road. “Why don’t you let me get yours, Jackie?”

John smiled a little, it was hard to be annoyed at Alexander. First off, he was John’s best friend and second Jackie was his loving nickname for John. “Alllright then, I’ll go sit down.”

Hamilton figured if he did something nice the emptiness would fade and the others would leave him alone more or less for the remainder of the spring break. Alexander ordered two ice creams; he held both cones in one hand as he tried to count the change properly.

“Alex you should hold those with two hands…” Mulligan warned watching one cone sway a little too much.

“I’m fine, I have to check my change, I think he did it wron—“ He watched as one of the ice creams fell on the ground. John’s eyes followed it too and before anyone could say a word, Alex jerked the remaining cone to John before taking a seat. “Whatever, I don’t care” He had just ordered ice cream for the both of them, and now he spilled his. He couldn’t wait to go back home and focus on something else.

“Aww don’t be like that, Ham” John smiled; he took a lick of ice cream and then motioned for Alex to try some. “Come on~ say ahh for Jackie” John purred rubbing the melting treat against Alexander’s lips. Reluctantly Alexander stuck out his tongue and took a lick where John had started licking from. “Feeling better?”

“Nope.” Alex licked his lips only to have his face jerked around by Laf who held his chin with one hand and had a spoonful of ice cream in the other.

“Open, Alexandre~” Laf leaned in sliding the spoon into Alexander’s unexpecting mouth. Alex swallowed slowly, licking his lips again much slower. “I think he likes mine more”

“Tch, no way” John narrowed his eyes, Alexander felt his chest tighten as he was caught between an ice cream love-rivalry. “He likes mine the best, Alex take another lick”

“Actually I like—..”He turned looked straight ahead and found Mulligan’s towering body, leaning over the table. He didn’t say a word, his eyes said them all and Alex immediately opened his mouth and welcomed more ice cream. “mm” He licked his lips. All three of them took turns feeding Alex, swapping ice creams. It was nice being showered with attention, Alex forgot how good his friends were to him.

“You got a lil something on your face” John smirked, “right here.” He leaned in and kissed Alex’s cheek.

Laf eyed down Mulligan and they started honing on Alexander as well, “yes and here” Laf kissed his other cheek.

“And here.” Mulligan kissed the top of his head.

Finally Alex released a small bubble of laughter. The joy of being around his affectionate friends and having the sugar from all the different treats was finally working on him. “Alright, alright I admit it…a little time away from homework is pretty nice…”
