Can’t Get It Out Of My Head (Peter Quill x Reader)

In which you slow dance with the one and only Star-Lord. (insp.)


He so desperately wanted to be called Star-Lord, but everyone called him Quill. Except for you. You preferred to use Peter, and maybe that was why he fell in love so hard. Rarely did anyone address him without a tinge of sarcasm or playful banter in their voice—something he was very guilty of reciprocating—but when you spoke to him, he felt validated in ways he never knew he could. You gave him a sense of responsibility. A feeling of warmth and excitement. A drive in life, fueled not by a desire for the admiration of others, but rather, a need to make you feel the same way he did. Happy.

Your initial glimpse of Peter was the day of Ronan’s defeat. Hair disheveled. Clothes torn. Face scratched up. He was dancing to a song you’d never heard, and your entire body reacted. It tingled and shook from your toes, to your heart strings, up your throat, to your brain where the sensation settled, leaving only one thought. Shit.  You’d gone through life thinking love at first sight was nothing more than a myth. But there you were. In love. Or something like it. You were stubborn when it came to things like that, so you chalked it up to lust—somehow that felt more dignified.

There was alcohol involved in your first encounter. That was always how these things seemed to go. The big hero, off to celebrate at a local bar; you, the plain civilian, coincidentally at the same place, standing in a corner.  Music was playing, but the melodies were foreign, and you could only assume that they were his. Most of them were upbeat, but occasionally things would slow down a little, and that’s when he shined the brightest. He’d move about the room fluidly, pulling the other patrons close. Dipping them, spinning them, pressing his body against theirs. Leaving a trail of longing eyes in his wake. You couldn’t help but feel jealous, but at the same time, you were grateful. Unless you were alone in the safety of your room, dancing was not your forte. And so you nursed your drink and watched.

He moved closer and you got a better look at his face, confirming that he was the most unrealistically handsome man you’d ever seen in your life. It was the sort of thing that held a hypnotic element, capturing your eyes and refusing to let them free of his spell. The sappiness of it all was enough to make you inwardly wretch, but as the gap in proximity closed, it became harder to deny fact.

Luminescence

Anon asked:

“I hope I’m doing this right, I don’t know if you’d be ok with a poly relationship fic with Sope? I love those two boys so much. I’d really like to see a story with them sharing their love and friendship and lots of fluff and yoongi dying from how cute Hoseok and their significant other is and the other members just looking at them and being amazed how well their relationship is and admiring the cute. Sorry if this is weird 😭 and thank you.”

Yes, you are doing it right. VERY RIGHT BECAUSE WHO DOESN’T LOVE POLY!SOPE????? Why did I name it Luminescence? Because they are both the light of the Reader’s life, and the Reader is theirs. So cheesy, I know.  This is my first time writing a poly one shot. Hope you enjoy~ 2k words

Pairing: Min Yoongi x Reader x Jung Hoseok

Genre: Poly AU!, lots of fluff, implied sex (although I might actually write it separately fml, let me know if you would like that), College AU!

Yoongi was never fond of sharing, especially the person he considered as the love of his life – you. There were so many things that unexpectedly came out in his life, and one of them was that he ended up feeling for a openly happy, innocent girl like you; which highly contrasted his outward stoic personality. Not that he hated that – he loved you with all his heart, and you did too, just as much.

A Friendly Favour (M)

Warning: Smut. Semi-not really-kind of infidelity.

“Absolutely not.” You said sternly, pulling the dishcloth that hung from the string of your apron and swiping the crumbs from the counter into your palm, tossing them mindlessly into the trash bin.

“Why not?” Taehyung whined, one cheek bulging with unchewed French toast.

You squinted at him, your elbows supporting you on the countertop when you leaned closer to him, “Because I don’t want to have sex with you, Taehyung.”

He swallowed the large bite of food with effort, “Do it for me,” he begged around the straw of his milk tea, “I am going on my third date with Yura this weekend and she’s been hinting at some stuff. I don’t wanna go in and make a fool of myself.”

“So, the only way to ensure that doesn’t happen is if I sleep with you, right?” You deadpanned.

“You’re one of my closest friends!”

“So?” You scoffed.

“So,” Taehyung continued, “You’re the only girl I’m close enough to that I would trust with something like this. And…” He started, but instantly clamped his mouth shut, looking away from you to focus on stirring his drink.

“And?” You pressed.

“And…” He trailed off, bringing the straw to his lips, but you reached out and snatched the glass from him, giving him an expectant glare.

“And Yoongi’s said some things…” He muttered in a rush.

“What things?” Your voice rose louder than you intended, earning you several glances from different patrons and a few of the waiting staff. You cleared your throat, ducking your head closer to Taehyung to try and hide the blush that no doubt coloured your cheeks.

Taehyung fidgeted in his seat, his fingers tapping the edge of the countertop, “Okay, don’t be mad.”

You just looked at him, and he nodded in understanding before continuing, “I was talking to him like a week ago, and I was asking him about what to do, you know, if things with Yura escalated. And he made references to when you two were together…”

“Oh my God.” You groaned, your hand coming up to cradle your face.

“It wasn’t anything bad!” He waved his arms frantically, as if to lessen the blow, “He just gave me some advice, and he said you were really, um, good?”

“Please stop talking.” You peeked at him through your fingers.

Taehyung nodded again, his lips pressing into a thin line and he watched his fingers. You admired him for a second, your smile hidden behind your hand because he looked positively dejected and completely adorable. You were almost contemplating agreeing with his proposal and you wanted to smack yourself to come back to your senses.

Seconds ticked by; Taehyung remaining silent as you just watched him. Your mind was teetering back and forth, arguing with yourself on whether this was a harmless request, or if it was just going too far. On the one hand, you didn’t want to create any awkwardness between the two of you, you valued your friendship with him too much. On the other hand, he was very obviously attractive, and he only made it sound like it was a one time thing. Another small part of you also may have been thinking about getting back at your ex-boyfriend for gossiping about something as personal as your sex life.

“Okay, I have some conditions,” You said finally, dropping your hand to the counter with a thud. Taehyung perked up instantly, his eyes wide with excitement. “This happens once, okay. That’s it. You don’t get to tell anyone about it. And lastly, after this happens, everything goes back to normal.”

“YesOkayWhatever!” Taehyung cheered in a rush, rising out of his seat so quickly that the stool skidded behind him. He threw his arms around you over the counter, peppering kisses to your cheek.

You struggled in his hold, trying to wedge your hands between your bodies to pry him off of you, but it was no use. Finally, with a particularly firm jab to his ribs with your two fingers, he released you with a grunt.

“So,” He started, his hand rubbing against his sore spot as he looked at any point in the restaurant that wasn’t your face, “When do we do this?”

You shrugged a shoulder, “When’s your date?”

“Tomorrow,” He blinked, eyes finally settling on you.

Your eyes narrowed before slipping closed, tipping your head back with a long sigh, “Then I guess it would have to be tonight.”

“Someone’s eager, hm?” He taunted, waggling his eyebrows suggestively.

You balled the dishcloth in your hand and flung it at him, hitting him square in the face. Taehyung swatted the cloth away, throwing it to the ground and almost knocking over his drink in the process. “Rude.” He grumbled.

You flashed a quick smile that didn’t meet your eyes, “I’ll be by your place at seven. Get out of here before I change my mind.”

smoothie klance au?? i guess

you would not guess how many half-written AUs i have in my drafts that become WAY TOO LONG for me to ever consider publishing in a text post. yes this is a short one.

  • keith makes smoothies for a living. it isnt a big deal until it is.
  • one night, this dude comes in. who cares about build-up, we all know its lance, and he looks frazzled. he sits at the counter and orders the fruitiest smoothie on the menu. keith makes it and doesnt think much of it, except to note that something about this kid is just… weird?
  • 1: hes coming in alone, which people their age usually dont. 2: hes dressed pretty nicely. 3: hes just sitting there??? drinking a smoothie??? not even scrolling on his phone or anything, just looking around and slurping. okay weirdo. 4: he seems off. keith does not use the word “aura” on a regular basis but lance has an aura. (which does not make sense to keith, who barely understands his own emotions, let alone someone else’s.)
  • lance thanks keith, and leaves like thirty minutes later. hes certainly not the weirdest customer keith has ever served, but for some reason that random, singular dude sticks out in his mind.
  • but the shifts come and go, and gradually keith forgets about lance.
  • until he comes back in again.

Nobody’s but Mine

Nobody’s but Mine

Request 4: Do you do norman fics? If so then can you write one where your best friends and you fall in love when norman gets jealous and realises he wants to own you 😏😘

Summary: (This one turned out a little different than originally planned, this is the end result. Hope the anon who requested this likes how it turned out.) Norman and the reader have been friends for over a year. Norman always hits on her but, she always turns him down because they have such a close friendship. One night she slips and they end up sleeping together. They become friends with benefits, until one night Norman gets jealous and tell the reader he only wants her. Setting is NYC.

—–

You laughed out loud, as loud as you had in a long time, as you continued to listen to the latest one of Norman’s conquest adventure stories. 

“So, then I told her, ‘Look, baby you can stay here until check out time. But, I have to be getting back to Georgia. The show doesn’t make itself.” His cocky head jutted up and his lips smirked as he thought back to yet another woman who just couldn’t get enough of him.

You rolled your eyes and busted out laughing as you slammed the rest of your drink and hit it down onto the table for emphasis, “Oh, please! No one is stupid enough to fall for that!” You exclaimed, more and more shocked with every story he told you how gullible women could be.

Norman to a swig of his double shot of whiskey in front of him and chuckled, “You’d be surprised.”

He took another swig of his drink and swirled it around in his hand, slowly turning his gaze over to you. He let his eyes roam your body and they came back to yours. He smirked when he saw you start to blush, but quickly contain yourself.

You hated when he did this to you. Truth be told you were just like every other red-blooded woman who found him attractive. But, you had learned, one too many times, what falling for men like him was like. And conquest after conquest had shown you that Norman was no different. You two had become friends instead. It had been over a year now since you two had been nearly inseparable. But you had promised yourself you would never go down that road with him, your friendship was too important and you didn’t want him breaking your heart like all the others. You focused on the drink in your hand, swirling it around, trying to ignore his eyes on you.

“You… You’re different though.” He slammed the rest of his drink down his throat. He hit the glass back onto the wooden bar, and stood up from his bar stool.

He walked behind you and put both hands on your bare shoulders, “I used all my powers of persuasion on you and they never did the trick.” He whispered into your ear.

You fought every urge you had to lean back into him and give in, like you wanted to. You forced your body forward and leaned your elbows onto the bar, and your body further away from him. You took a swig of your drink and looked back at him smirking, “Guess you’re not as smooth as you think there, cowboy.”

He laughed and smiled his real, relaxed, dazzling smile, stumbling backwards a little as the alcohol rushed through him. He really loved that you could hold your own with him, hell he loved nearly everything about you. He had never been able to get along and be so relaxed and laid back with a woman before.

He punched you in the arm, a little too harshly, but you took it with a grin.

“That’s what I like about you, Y/N. Ya always keep a man guessing.” He shook his head and laughed again, before walking away toward the bathroom.

“I’m gonna hit the head.” He said, his back turned to you, as he raised up a peace sign to you.

You laughed, your smile wide and happy, as you watched him walk away.

Whenever anyone in the town of Riverdale thought of Jughead Jones, they always thought back to Y/N L/N. The pair of teens were always seen together. They’re connected to the hip, and have been ever since they met. Pop’s was always one of the go-to places that they went to when you wanted to hang out. 

So, one day at the beloved diner, the moody writer sat in front of the most beautiful girl he had ever seen, or his best friend Y/N, typing away at his laptop as she did her homework. Jughead paused from writing his novel and stared at her, thinking of ways he could confess his love for her when her phone suddenly vibrated against the table.

 He looked down to look at her phone, but all he could register was a picture of the two of them. It was a picture of him with one of his arms around her waist. The girl of my dreams has a picture of me as her lockscreen, the boy thought as Y/N grabbed her phone to check the text message. She gazed up at Jughead after replying to the message, only to catch the greenish-blue eyes of her best friend. She smiled and looked down at her phone before locking it and putting it back on the old shiny table. “What are you staring at, Jug?” Y/N asked somewhat sarcastically as she looked at him, not losing that beautiful smile.

 Jughead didn’t know what to say. All he did was glance at the computer screen in front of him, for a split second, before moving his hands from the keys closing his laptop to give Y/N his attention. “Y/N, why do you have me as your lockscreen?” He asked curiously, sipping the straw of his milkshake. Y/N blushed and looked at her phone again. “ Because you’re my best friend Juggie. You keep me grounded and you know me better than I know myself. I have no idea what I would do without you.” She replied with love in her eyes and sincerity lacing her voice. It’s now or never.

 "Y/N I-I have to tell you something.“ He said before clearing his throat. Y/N reached across the table to hold his hands with hers, looking into his eyes. “You know you can tell me anything right?” She said as she lightly squeezed his hands. Jughead sighed, wanting to tell her the inevitable in a simple, and subtle other than ‘I love you’. “I like you Y/N. I really like you, more than a friend and I was wondering if you want to go to the Drive-In together sometime? Like, on a date. Maybe?” He asked, looking at their laced hands. 

Y/N blushed as a small smile appeared on her face. “Will there be snacks? I’ll only go if there are snacks.” She asked jokingly, her smile growing. Jughead laughed. “Can’t imagine not bringing any.” Y/N thought about it, mockingly, bringing one of her hands to hold her chin as she looked at the ceiling from the corner of her eyes. “Than I’ll have to say yes, Jughead Jones the third.” She finally answered. “But only for the snacks.” She said with a small smirk.

There were three things that clued you into the fact that it would be a bad night. The first was the fact that the Rangers were losing to their number one rivals, the Devils, by a score of 4-1 in the third. That was something that could easily be changed, you reassured yourself. Yes, it was the third, but Jimmy was a part of a good, agile team that could easily come back from these sorts of deficits. This was something that, if occurring by itself, would not make for a completely terrible night.

The second reason that the night had suddenly turned south had to do with Jimmy himself. Your sweet boyfriend, who had never had more than two penalty minutes in a game, had eight in this game. Sure, he wasn’t the smallest guy on the team, and he normally played a pretty scrappy game, but not scrappy enough to get two roughing minors and a high stick major. Although you’re not the best at math, you know that less playing time plus an angry coach equals one unhappy Jimmy. Even with these two unfortunate events, this sort of bad night could easily be cured with a little alcohol and ‘sexy time.’

It was the third event that let you know that this was going to be a terrible night.

Unintentional (C.B)

Request - Can you do a Corbyn imagine where the reader like him a lot but he’s doesn’t realize it and always has girls over and it hurts the reader a lot so she cuts herself off from all of them and then Corbyn finally realizes?
Warnings: swearing, angst, Corbyn being a headass
(A/N - didn’t add the cutting part, sozz)


It’s been two hours. Two hours spent sitting in a chair with a book in your lap as you wait for Corbyn to arrive.

You felt the urge to leave thirty minutes after him not showing up, but part of you felt obliged to stay and wait it out. He hasn’t even sent a brief text explaining why he’s late.

He had called two days ago requesting an outing to the mall and of course, you were down. The blue-eyed blonde is your best friend and you haven’t hung out with him in a while for various reasons, all of them containing sorts of a female other than you.

Indie Film

The town I grew up in had a total of three attractions: the bar, church, and the movie theater.

When you’re twelve years old, you’re too young to drink and the last place you want to be is church on those wooden pews that make your butt ache. So every dime I found inbetween the couch cushions, every dollar I got for allowance, they went into the ‘movie theater fund’. The ‘fund’ was just a giant glass jar on my desk, but it was the best I had.

Unfortunately I had something my friends didn’t.

Hwang Minhyun as your boyfriend

Wanna One Boyfriend ღ 8/11

So you’ve known Minhyun since you two were young and you always thought of him as the weird quiet scary kid in your class

But your mom and his mom became friends and introduced you two each other formally (aka tried to force you to become friends)
So when you two formally met, he tried to keep up his cool guy facade

his mom: “Stop putting on a facade Minhyun!”
*his personality changes 180 (or 360 in seongwoo’s case)* “Hi, I’m Minhyun”

You were surprised how different he actually was but that made it easier for you to befriend him and soon you and him became really good friends.
“(Y/N)!!”

You were the only one that Minhyun felt comfortable enough to show you his dorky sides
like one time you tripped and you expected him to chuckle and walk away but instead he knelt down to your level and asked
“How many fingers am I holding?”

“Minhyun I tripped not fall into a concussion!!”
*innocently* “Aren’t they the same thing?”

However, there are times when you’ll trip and he’ll be like

You’re the only person he will act cute for when you ask 
(that’s because he has been slowly falling for you oops)

So, Minhyun couldn’t deny his feelings for you anymore and was scheming on how to ask you to be his

Finally he asked you out (even though he was crazy nervous)
“Will you go out with me (Y/N)?”

You were so taken aback that you said “no” which also took Minhyun by surprise

“Minhyun, are you okay?”
“Yeah, don’t worry about. Just act like this never happened,okay?” Minhyun would smile despite his heart breaking bc he didn’t want you to feel bad

You and Minhyun decided to act like his confession never happened and continued to be best friends 
However, there were times when you two would be hanging out he ended up taking a nap and would talk in his sleep that made it hard for you
“why…… doesn’t (Y/N)……. love me?”
“did I do……… something…… wrong?”

You two continued as friends and you started dating someone else and Minhyun was the least bit of happy about that
“Minhyun, Youngmin and I are dating now~”

However, your relationship with Youngmin didn’t last long and he ended up breaking your heart
Minhyun couldn’t help but feel relieved when he heard about the break up

A few weeks later he tried again in asking you out
“Will you go out with me (Y/N)?”

You couldn’t help giggle at the cheesiness of his confession and realized you should have said ‘yes’ to him all those years ago. This time you didn’t hesitate in saying “YES!” and he was like this at first 

but once the reality sunk in he is like

(okay now for the fluffy stuff)

dating Minhyun means that you automatically become Wanna One’s mom

Minhyun gets so shy when the boys comment on how cute “mom and dad” are

hanging out with the boys, you couldn’t help but pick up little quirks from Jaehwan making Minhyun be like
*sigh* “why…”

Also you thought that you needed to keep Jaehwan away from Minhyun

But really, do you?

you also thought that you needed to keep an eye out for Seonho

But Minhyun has it all under control

he always needs his pamper session after a long day with dealing with the boys
“They’re going to give me premature wrinkles i swear”

He still gets so shy whenever you catch him looking at you
“I- I wasn’t staring”

One time his mom sent you this

And you showed him while laughing like crazy (cue Jaehwan’s psyho laugh)
“Don’t talk to me ever”

Sometimes you come home to this and you couldn’t be anymore grateful
“(Y/N)! Look at what I made with just tape and 20 straws!”

You would imagine Minhyun cooking for you to be like this

When really… this boy be struggling

One time the boys caught him sleep talking and recorded it for you to see later
“I…. jeongmal…. jeongmal…jinja… real…. daebak… heol…. wanjeon… love (Y/N)..”
“That’s my line!”
“Seongwoo shut up!”

Likes to tease you whenever you make him something
“(Y/N), you know I don’t like chicken”
“I- I’m sorry…”
“Just kidding” *smirks before eating*

Imagine waking up to this squish every morning

Dating Minhyun is going to be a roller coaster of emotions at first but once you two get into the groove of it, you will compliment each other so well. Your weakness will be his strengths and vice versa. Although he may seem cold and unapproachable, he is such a softie for you. He never stops smiling around you. Sometimes his emotions may seem unreadable or he won’t tell you what’s on his mind bc he doesn’t want to burden you. Communication and reassurance is key when dating Minhyun. Minhyun is soft angel who will love you endlessly so please do the same for him :)

*Gifs are not mine. Credit to the gif makers*

A/N: I didn’t mean for the beginning to be so long and angsty. If you would like a more fluffier Minhyun one please send a request and I will gladly make a second more fluffier one :)

A Promise I Intend To Keep

Castiel x Reader

Word Count: 1.2K

Warnings: None, just loads of fluff

Written By: Kace

A/N: This is for @katymacsupernatural’s “Wish Upon A Star” Challenge. I chose a Beauty and the Beast quote, because Belle is my favorite princess and Cas is adorable so yeah… Hope you like it!

Quote: “Well, there’s the usual things: flowers, chocolates, promises you don’t intend to keep…”

I didn’t completely understand it. Every time Y/N was near I began feeling a plethora of unusual things. I felt like I had bugs crawling in my vessel’s abdomen and my hands would begin to feel cold and clammy. Even my heart would clench when I nonchalantly stared into her captivating Y/E/C eyes.

It was peculiar. I simply couldn’t wrap my head around it. My tongue would feel as if it were tied in a knot and I couldn’t speak whenever she would say something to me.

Dean realized something was off when we were celebrating a win after a vampire hunt one night and we all went to a local bar. I was quiet, because Y/N was around, but that wasn’t what made Dean notice something was different.

The Garrison is full to the rafters with Peaky Blinders tonight and somehow we’ve ended up sat at the Shelby table. I wouldn’t even be here if Marie hadn’t dragged me out claiming she needed a drink after a ‘hard week’ at work.

“If I didn’t know you better I’d say you’d planned this,” I whisper to her.

“Now why would I do that?” she replies, her hand on her chest to feign innocence. She gives me a quick smile and a little wink before turning her attention back to John who’s sat next to her, his arm slung over the back of her chair.

“What were you saying?” she asks John.

“I was saying how desperate I was for a night away from the little’uns, they’re doing my fucking nut in,” he replies.

“Well the ladies love a guy who’s good with kids,” Marie says and the way she lowers her voice to make herself sound all sultry is the final straw.

“Excuse me,” I mumble, pushing myself from the table.

Don’t Turn Around (Part 2/2) (Steve Rogers x reader)

Request: Hi! I really love your stories, they’re amazing and very suspenseful. I was wondering, can you do a one shot where the reader is a mutant taken in by the Avengers after a freak accident. She has feelings for Steve, but she’s scared of her powers and thinks that he’ll never love her? It’s okay if you can’t get to it, but have a good day!

Part One

In the next month that followed after your rescue and return to the compound, you kept a low profile and had yet to return to duty with the team.  It wasn’t purely by your choice alone, as Steve wouldn’t allow it even if you had wanted to.  You had been effective at clearing the memories from his mind that had left him riddled with guilt before your rescue, but the man knew you too well; despite your best efforts to act as normally as you could when he was nearby, he couldn’t shake the feeling that something more was going on with you and he was keeping you grounded until he could figure it out.
