Of course, because Neymar’s a fucking idiot, he can’t hide his surprise. Especially since Messi’s staring right at him. But at least this is a welcome distraction from Messi’s ass. “What favor?” Neymar asks, looking back wide-eyed at Messi. “I thought—It was made very clear to me that Dani took my favor,” he says, somehow keeping his voice level.
He remembers that feeling of betrayal very well.
Messi seems amused, pausing to lean against the wall. His dark hair sticks slightly against the cement but he doesn’t seem to mind. “Why would you question me owing you a favor?” His eyes flick over Neymar’s head, perhaps making sure they’re alone, before looking directly at him again. “I’ll deal with Alves. He’ll have to wait for Luis to heal a little before he gets what he wants. Even if patience was never something he was good at.” He tilts his head to the side, the motion pulling his hair from the wall. “This isn’t about Alves, in any case. It’s about you. And I repay my debts.”
AU where instead of going to Samwell, Jack starts a widely successful Publicly Broadcast show for children.
Jack learns that he is great with kids after coaching them for a little over two years. Moreover, kids are good with Jack. There is no pressure to be anything other than who he is.
It all starts with a local news program doing a fluff piece on Jack Zimmermann’s coaching ability. But then it turned into something completely different when Jack skated onto camera and started to introduce every single one of his kids and what was special about them. He was…really enchanting actually. He didn’t ever really talk down to them. Jack just treated them as a tiny friend.
They ARE his tiny friends, but that’s not the point.
The footage they got of “snack time” was really the best. Imagine a good 16 kids piled around this massive man teaching them the best way to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
It should have been obvious that a local channel would contact him. It still surprises Jack. They want him to host a show? Why? Everyone always teased him about how impersonable he was during interviews. Is it because he’s Jack Zimmermann’s son? Or Alicia’s?
Jack asks all of these questions to his mother and she just laughs. “You made a PB&J interesting to 16 kids just by being you”
Back to working loosely haha I enjoy it far too much 8]
He didn’t know when she started sitting there, every morning at eight, with a cup of coffee in her hands. He only knew when he started remembering her.
Sometimes she was with someone–a friend, he hoped–but most times, she was alone, sitting contentedly with her beverage, enjoying her own company.
He never could quite muster up the courage to go up to her–what was he going to say? “Hey, I’ve been watching you drink coffee every morning as I walk to work, how’s it going?” Yeah, that’s not a bit creepy.
So one day, when it was down-pouring, and he went his way to work, believing fully that perhaps today, he might not get to see her, he was surprised to find he was wrong. There she was, wearing a bright red raincoat–but no umbrella.
Some old doodles that I did last year uwu since you guys loved this au so much!
Some things to know about this au(aka: the parent trap au)
Lance and his girlfriend had the baby the last year of high school. Lance is the type of guy who wanted to wait for “the one” before having sex, so you can guess how in love he was about her. Sadly, the gf didn’t felt the same and the moment she had the baby she left him with her.
Adriana has ADHD just like her father
Lance is studying to become a pediatrician but also he has a part-time job in a store. His parents pay for his studies but he has to pay for his apartment and their everyday need.
He barely has time to spend with Adriana, so here comes cool uncle Hunk to help them out and be Adriana’s baby sitter whenever Lance needs it
Keith is Adriana’s favorite teacher, even if she hates math, he always helps her when she is lost (also he has a motorcycle! how cool is that!?)
Adriana has the looks of his father but the shape of her eyes are like her mother, she was of asian roots so Adriana has asian shaped eyes.
Lance and Keith knew each other from high school, but they never really talked before
Lance has a new girlfriend right now. she’s the first gf he had had since Adriana’s mother left him. Adriana hates her.
Normally is Hunk who goes to the parent meetings and to pick Adriana from school.
Adriana really loves his dad, she’s so proud of him and knows he’s doing his best.
Adriana is a very smart girl, her favorite classes are science and PE. She can’t seem to be still though, school is difficult some times when there’s too much written information.
In this au Lance, Keith and Hunk are 25y/o while Adriana is 7
Adriana stopped asking about her mother when she was 5y/o, she realized that it hurt her father and she left betrayed by her.
oKAY BUT everyone would be at least double as upset with him because Gracia is an unarmed housewifeand also Maes’ wife and everyone knows that they’re literally made for eachother and that she’d never kill him but Roy ‘burned her to death’ despite the few evidences there are and that’s just??? not to mention that he technically ‘turned Elicia into an orphan’
Iwaizumi is the Ruler of Night while Oikawa is the Ruler of Day.
They meet everyday twice, once when the day changes into the night and once when the night returns to the day.
Oikawa is fascinated with Iwaizumi, with the gentle halo glowing around him and the gracefulness he holds as he glides the day light under his cape so the night could fall.
Unfortunately for Oikawa, Iwaizumi seems unaware of Oikawa’s presence.
One day, Oikawa compresses a beam of light into a small ball and hides it in the dusk.
Iwaizumi finds it while gathering the day light and thinks it is something the Ruler of Day left by accident. Iwa hangs it among the night sky, where its shine reaches the farthest, so Oikawa would know where to get it.
Oikawa never takes it back and everyday Iwaizumi would find another light ball left in the dusk.
Soon, Iwaizumi finds himself being surrounded by dots and dots of light from the Ruler of Day even in the latest night. They are warm and beautiful and radiant, like their creator. But they are also shy, blinking sheepishly whenever Iwaizumi gets near them, just like their creator.
Next day, Iwaizumi leaves the light ball in the dusk untouched when he wraps up the day.
Oikawa ventures in the realm of night for the first time that day because he cannot bear to see any of his gifts for Iwaizumi being left alone in the dusk (alos because it’s one of the brightest he has ever created so “why doesn’t he like it?”)
Iwaizumi catches Oikawa when he tries to hang the light ball at the highest place and confronts his intention of the “gifts.”
Oikawa stutters out a confession and leaves happily that morning with a promise to spend more time together everyday to know each other more.
Oikawa over-stays the day that upcoming summer, making the days longer. In turn, Iwaizumi stays longer to make up the missing time of night that winter.
Eventually, they become lovers. They are so in love that sometimes they forget the time of the day and get all over each other, blocking the light from human eyes.
That’s how there are stars in the night sky, how the length of daylight changes throughout the seasons, and how eclipse sometimes happens to mess with people.
All because the Rulers of Night and Day are in love.
