Context: The party has spent the past 3 months following a lead on an individual called Thorn. I am the DM and had detailed the backstories and secrets of all the characters. The half Dragon Ranger just found a soul powered computer.
RANGER: “How far has Thorn gone with his experiments”.
COMPUTER AI: “He’s progressed the knowledge of bloodlines and lineages of power by a lot. Testing his theories on “acquired” Dragons.“
RANGER: "Wait…is a white dragon among the acquired?”
Computer: “Titiana the Winter Scourge is the only white dragon in Thorns arsenal”.
RANGER OoC: “Wait… wait… did you… no… no you didn’t… please”.
ME: “You’re one of Thorns experiments, you just didn’t know until now”.
RANGER: NO, NO, NO, NOOOOO
Description - Tragedy strikes. (don’t want to spoil it) Song - Hold On by Chord Overstreet Warning - alcohol poisoning, swearing, EMOTIONS
You didn’t remember why everything crashed and fell that day. One second you were dancing in Corbyn’s arms in your living room and the next, you both are screaming and yelling at one another at the top of your lungs. All you can clearly remember is him walking out and slamming the door, not returning or calling back for an entire two weeks.
You sat on your living room floor with your back against your couch, a bottle of liquor in your lap and your phone on the carpet beside you. The screen is bright, Corbyn’s number ready to be clicked.
It’s been a crappy few days. Everything seemed to be crumbling beneath your feet and there wasn’t anything to do about it. None of the guys would answer their phones and you knew it was because of Corbyn.
All of your friends had ditched you because they were Corbyn’s originally and your parents had passed away years ago. You felt truly alone in the world, and it hurt tremendously.
How do you start talking to guys?!?? I want to release my inner hoe but I don't know how. I had boyfriends in high school but now I'm in college and don't know any of the guys or how to get to know them, please help!
Let me start by saying ‘I want to release my inner hoe’ made my day so thank you for that! But enough about me-
Talking to guys:
Don’t overthink it. If you see a guy you’re interested in just walk over, introduce yourself politely. If you start a conversation first, don’t forget to introduce yourself along the way.
Start a conversation based on what’s going on around you (ex. you’re leaving class, waiting in a line, contemplating if to try something different in the dining hall etc)
Asking for help when you need it or offering a legitimate compliment is always a great way to get just about anyone talking or getting to know them
Attending campus events are always a good way to become better acquainted with someone.
If you’ve captured their attention, try asking questions that require more thought than usual or give way to further discussion
Don’t forget your body language matters also. Smile, laugh but don’t overdo it, nod when you agree or in acknowledgement to show you still follow and most importantly, maintain a decent amount of eye contact.
Also, check out this post on how to hoe because it’s pretty good. Hope this helps!
“No…no, you can’t! Stop! Please don’t go away. Please? No one’s ever stuck with me so long before. And if you leave…I just, I remember things better with you. I do. Look, P. Sherman, 42…40…2…agh! I remember it, I do. It’s there, I know it is because when I look at you, I can feel it. And I, I look at you and…and I’m home. Please. I don’t want them to go away. I don’t want to forget.” - Finding Nemo, 2012.
Quick edit while we wait for the Philinda reunion, because @philinda‘s ask hurt me in my soul.
OC x Jungkook (waiter!au) Length: 2k of just.pure. fluff. insp: “you’re co-workers and he’s this idiot that gets all the girls swooning over him that you get grumpy in discrete thinking he doesn’t know but he actually does and he finds it so cute so one night when the both of you are closing down, you’re a bit cranky at him and he starts to fess up like ‘look i know you’re jealous at all those other girls but know they mean nothing because i only like you and holy fuck no did i just say that’ and ensue awkward confession and date asking.” - @an-exotic-writer (1/3 of waiter/waitress!au that has kicked me out of the house)
Leaning over the damp table with towel in hand, you’re no doubt unattractively bent over the surface as you clean it of any left over food when the familiar ding of the door notifies you of a new customer. Picking up the dirty plates in your hand and balancing the last one on the center of your forearm, you straighten and turn to greet the customer when the usual screech of,
“Kookie!” nearly makes you drop the aforementioned pieces of porcelain. Luckily the plates are safe, the only damage done was to the smile you painstakingly plastered on.
Not bothering to meet her gaze—she doesn’t want you to serve her anyways— you shuffle through the white double doors towards the back. Rushing inside the kitchen with a huff, you dump the plates into the dirty bins with a crash and hunt down the boy who is the root cause of your daily suffering.
“Yah, Jungkook.” you grumble towards the figure bent over the ice machine, “your daily is here and I’m not about to piss her off so you go greet her.”
He straightens with a smirk, bringing the bucket of ice with him and easily filling the soda machine as you watch his muscles flex under this black dress shirt. You throw his apron towards him and waits as he plucks it out of the air and ties it wordlessly around his waist as he makes his way out of the swinging double doors with a wink.
Please stop returning items as soon as we open!! We don't have all the money in the world in our register, it just leaves me with an empty drawer and having to wait for a manager to get more cash for me. -.-
I’ve stopped being sorry for all my soft. I won’t apologise because I miss you, or because I said it, or because I text you first, or again. I think everyone spends too much time trying to close themselves off. I don’t want to be cool or indifferent, I want to be honest. If I love you at 5AM, I’d damn well rather that you know I felt it. If I love you two hours later, I’ll tell you then too. Listen, I won’t wait double the time it takes for you to text me back because I don’t want to. I don’t care enough to be patient with you. I’m happy, you made me feel that way, don’t you want to know? So that’s how it’s going to be. I’m going to leave myself as open as a church door. And I’m going to wake you up before the crack of dawn to tell you that I’m fucking joyful, no pretending, not from me, not ever. Would you like some coffee, would you please kiss me? Here, these are my hands, this is my mouth, it is all yours.
Cause I believe Kimberly is scared of making Trini hate her as well
(giggling) Oh what you mean like that time you tore open your shirt in gym cause you shoved too many Dodge balls up there.
Zack (in the background):
Wait what. Please Kim, tell me this story.
(now annoyed) thanks Kim, now he's never gonna let this go, I asked you not to tell anyone. Christ, you can be really annoying sometimes, you know that?
(face falling) oh-oh right. I-I'm sorry. I didn't realise how- I'll just go.
Kimberly stands up, grabbing her things. Trini notices her bottom lip trembling, Kimberly obviously trying to mask her pain.
Trini (suddenly feeling very guilty):
shit Kim. I didn't mean it like that. Don't go.
no. No it's fine, I'll leave. I'm the one who should be sorry. I promised I wouldn't tell anyone and I broke that trust.
Trini (grabbing Kimberly's wrist, speaking softly) Kim. I'm not Amanda, I don't hate you. I was just annoyed, and you didn't betray me. You don't have to go.
you don't have to say that cause you feel guilty.
Trini (pulling Kimberly down next to her, Zack noticing this and leaving, giving the duo some privacy):
I'm not. I say things I don't mean when I get annoyed or angry. I wasn't angry at you, I was annoyed cause I knew Zack would use it against me in some way. I didn't mean to make you think I hated you.
Kimberly (struggling to keep the tears from falling):
it's just... After what I did to Amanda. I'm so scared everyone's going to hate me and leave when you all realise how much of a bitch I am. I'm scared you're going to leave me and I-I... I can't lose you too.
Trini (quickly pulling Kimberly into a tight hug, the Pink Ranger's body shaking as she sobbed into the Yellow Ranger's shirt):
we're never leaving you Kim. I'm never leaving you. You're stuck with me.
you say that like it's a bad thing.
to most people it is.
Kimberly (she murmured, leaning slowly up to the Yellow Ranger):
I'm not most people.
Trini (her voice breathy):
Kim. W-what- what are you doing?
something I've wanted to do since we jumped off the cliff.
you mean when you dragged me down with you.
Kimberly (giggling slightly):
eh. Tomato tomato.
Before Trini could retort with a sarcastic comment, Kimberly softly pressed her lips to Trini's. The shorter girl tasting the soft tears on Kimberly's lips.
Trini (after pulling away, causing Kimberly to whine):
I take back what I said earlier. You are definitely not annoying.
if that's what you think after I kissed you, maybe I should do it a bit more.
maybe you should.
Before they could though, they heard Zack cheering in the background.
I swear, if he watched all of that, I'll use him as my personal piñata.
She watched as the shorter Ranger chased Zack, hearing his screams as he ran out of the room, Kimberly wiped away her tears, all previous fears leaving as she gently touched her lips.
Kimberly (whispering to herself):
yeah I'm definitely fucking bi. Without a doubt.
