what we do for the game we love

I find it

I find it funny how people are so up in arms about fans being angry that they were sold half a game.

Yes. We know what a mess the creation of the game was. We know what happened in development. We know that they were under a strict time schedule.

You know what that doesn’t change?

The fact is that we were sold an incomplete product. It doesn’t matter the who/what/when/where/why/how of it happening. We were sold half a game, and now have to wait for them to maybe release the rest of the game.

Do any of you know what brand loyalty is? It’s how willing the people who love your brand will be to your product. SE has been having an issue with retaining their fanbase because of their lackluster creations for a while. FFXV was created, in part, to bolster that loyalty. When people trust you, they are more willing to look past flaws.

Issue is, for SE, their fans have begun to waiver. People keep bringing up how we’re lucky that we’re getting new releases…. except that this directly ties into their sales. That free content may be free for customers, but it is acting like a very expensive bandaid to cover the festering wound that is fan trust.

They know they pissed off their customers. I just sat through a 20 minute anketto filling in a lot of how I felt about the game. They wouldn’t be putting out 20 minute surveys if they didn’t have problems.

This is their bottom line. If no one trusts that they can sell well, if the BoD sees interest waning… Final Fantasy as we know it may change significantly. Most of SE (and other Japanese companies) has been putting a lot of their resources into online games and mobile games. If there isn’t a demand, then…

It’s all in the sales. It’s all in future expectations.

You can pity B2 all day long, because god knows I do. They got the short end of the stick. I have been saying that we should blame Corporate this entire time. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t get to say something about it. As a customer who paid money for something that they knew was incomplete, SE should be ashamed of themselves. To try and pretend otherwise is ridiculous. If I went out and bought a burger and what I got was a half-cooked mess, as a consumer I am allowed to have a say in what my money was wasted on.

one time he and i were sitting in bed and i said “where do you feel stuff?” and he said “what do you mean” and i said, “here is anxiety” and pointed to my bottom left rib where the spiders start. he pointed to his throat. “it’s here for me.” 

i keep anger in my breastbone, he holds it in his hands. i feel sadness on my shoulders, he feels it in his lungs. 

we play this game until we come to love, and i realize that i am terrified (jugular vein) of what might come. what if it is not the same. what if he feels it somewhere else, what if it is just a flash fire, not the slow burn, what if it is congealing in one place instead of radiating, i try to change topics, flight response (sternum)

he takes my hands in his and puts them over his ribs and says, “everywhere, everywhere, like a sun is trying to escape me, like i am being consumed and you are filling up where used to be empty.” i say, “don’t be ridiculous humans are 99% empty space,” i nervous laugh (spiders down spine), he holds his gaze with me. 

“everywhere,” he repeats.

Study and Going Steady - Jeff Atkins Smut

Jeff Atkins x reader

Request: I was wondering if you could do a smut on Jeff Atkins about y/n coming to his house while his parents are away and we want to “Study” but things go another certain way

WARNINGS: Fluff, smut, cursing

Originally posted by knightlley

“I’m heading out now mom!” I scream as I head for the door.

“Okay hun, text me when you get to his house, love you!”

I say a quick love you too as I lock the door and jog to my car. I’m happy cause I’m staying the night at my boyfriend Jeff’s house. His first game can be next Friday if he passes his upcoming test so I promised him I will help him study before we binge watch cringy romance movies. As I pulled into his car, I noticed his parents car isn’t there. I forgot they went away on a business trip for the weekend. I knock on the door and as soon as it opens I’m welcomed by his lips.

“Hey beautiful” he smiles.

“Hello hunnybun” I joke as I walk into his living room.

“Oh gosh, let me stick to the cute names” he laughs as he jumps on the couch.

“Whatever you say boo bear” I smile as I sit down and put my legs on his lap. 

“Did you bring everything for the night?”

“Yep textbooks, pencils, pajamas, charger, hair ties, underw-”

“You don’t have to tell me everything babe” he laughs

“Yeah yeah when do you want to start studying?”

“Uh how about you go upstairs change into your pjs while I get us some food then we can start.”

 I nod my head and take my bag to his room. He has such a modest, but boyish room. I change into my clothes, purposely bringing the tight shorts and tank top Jeff loves so much. I throw my hair in a messy ponytail and get our books out.

“So I brought some classic chips and popco-”

He stopped and made no effort to hide the fact that he was staring right at my ass. That made me blush as I tried to pull down the already revealing shorts.

“And y-you expect us to study with you wearing that?”

“Wearing what?” I ask innocently as I turn away from him to put the rest of the books on the bed. I then felt his breath behind me as he grabbed my waist and pulled my back towards him. 

“This” He said and started kissing my neck and went from my waist to my breast, knowing I don’t wear a bra to bed. A light moan escaped my mouth as I put my hands over his. I felt him smirk on my neck and I almost forgot what we were suppose to do.

“Babe babe babe” I squirm from his grip as I turn to face him and peck his lip. 

“I love you, but we really need to study so I can cheer you on at Friday’s game”

he sighed, but he knew I was right. “Fine fine, but your missing out” he jokes as he slaps my butt. 

_____________________________________________________________

“Jeff pay attention!”

“I am babe I swear”

“Which president wrote the Declaration of Independence then?”

“Um.. Abraham Jefferson?”

“Yeah, no this studying is over, I hope your going to enjoy watching the game on the bleachers with me.” I start closing our books and Jeff grabbed my hands.

“I’m sorry babe, I just can’t stop looking at you that’s all, it’s easy for Jensen to tutor me because he isn’t my hot girlfriend.”

“Shall I dress up like Clay then?”

“No no no” he laughs.

“Then what do you want to do?”

he bits his lip and looks at me up and down as he climbs on top of me. he leans down to my ear and kisses it, “you” he whispers.

I can’t help but moan at how sexy that sounded and push him down onto the bed. I attack his mouth, not that he had a problem. He grab my thighs and squeeze them. I wrap my arms around his neck to deepen the kiss. his hands travel to my butt as his slides his hands inside my shorts. I rub against his pants and start to feel his bulge coming on. He starts groaning and I smile against his lips. He stops kissing only to remove our shirts and turn me over. He starts to slowly kiss my neck, knowing I hate it.

“Jeff stop teasing” I wine.

“Sorry baby” he smirks.

He started to harshly suck on my sweet spot and I moan into his neck. He then goes to one of my breast and starts sucking on my nipple while massaging the other and then switching. I squirm under him, grabbing his brown hair just wanting to feel him already.

“Babe, I want you already” I wine

“In just a second” he smiles as his kisses travel to my thighs. he pulls my shorts down painfully slow, making me a groaning mess. he laughs at my reaction and comes back up to kiss me. I feel vulnerable being completely naked under him so I tug on his sweats so he gets the idea which he does. He pulls them down and went back to sweetly kissing me. I then feel his hands go in between my legs and I suck in my breathe. He circles his fingers around my clit and I try hard not to moan.

“Oh my go- Jeff!”

he bits his lip as he watches me come undone under him. I buckle my hips into his fingers and just need to feel him. 

“Jeff please..” I whimper with my eyes a shut. 

He doesn’t make me ask again as he grabs one of his condoms from inside his nightstand and slide it on. I can’t help but stare at his huge member and grab it in my hand, knowing he likes me to put it towards my entrance. He groans from my touch and kisses me passionately. He positions himself and stops kissing to look at me.

“Are you ready babe?”

I smile at him for always asking before he did anything. I nod my head and he slowly pushes himself into me. I moan and grab his arm as he stretches me. When he’s all the way in, he stops so I can adjust to him. He starts to slowly thrust into me and I wrap my arms around his neck.

“Fu-Jeff- my god” I moan. He takes my moans as his que to go faster. He takes my legs and wraps them around his waist as he starts quickly thrusting to me. I start to lose air from his speed. I dig my nails to his back and come close to almost screaming.

“Jeeeeeff! Fuck! my gosh!!” He puts one off my legs on his shoulder to deepen himself and goes faster. I moan with every pound he gives me. He’s a groaning mess as he whispers curse words with sweat coming down his forehead. His grip on my waist tightens as his thrust become more sloppy. 

“Babe I-I’m about to-”

I moan over his words as his thrust still didn’t slow down, but only got faster. I felt my stomach tighten as now both of my legs are over Jeff’s shoulders, feeling all of him. 

“Je- I c-can’t” before I can finish I came undone under him.

“Fuck y/n” his thrusts got sloppier as he rode out his high, putting my legs down and kissing my forehead. he slid out of me and collapsed onto the bed next to me. Both of us breathing hard, he turned over so that he was facing towards me and wrapped his arms around my bare torso. He started tracing small circles on my side and pecked my lips.

“If this is whats gonna happen every time we study, I don’t mind sitting on the bleachers” he lazily smiles.

“Well I’m not, your playing next game so text Clay”

“Fine, later” he sighs. 

He looks in my eyes and smiles “I love you babe”

“I love you too munchkin” I smile

“What did I say with the names!”

1. Don’t date a boy who cancels plans last minute. Especially if he’s canceling for someone else. You are not a second choice. You are not a third choice. You are a first choice or you are nothing to him.
Do you understand me, baby? You are worth so much more than that, don’t let him push you around.

2. If he’s rude to you, drop him. I don’t care how many times he says “just kidding” or “baby, I didn’t mean it” you keep your head up, your shoulders straight, your chin high and you demand to be treated as the goddess you are.

3. If he doesn’t hold your hand in front of his friends or wrap his arms around you when you’re with his family then he isn’t worth it. Date someone who can’t keep their hands off of you. Date someone who aches with the need to feel your skin on theirs.

4. Make sure he has goals, aspirations, dreams. Make sure he has a plan of some sort. If he doesn’t have any of those what are you guys supposed to talk about? What are your 2 AM conversations going to look like?

5. Find out his hobbies and interests and make sure they’re similar to yours. If you want to travel, date someone who will drop what they’re doing just to take you on a random adventure. You don’t want to be stuck with someone who’s idea of a good night is sitting on his futon with cheesy Dorito fingers while you watch him play video games.

6. If your brother doesn’t like him or if he rubs your sister the wrong way, trust their instinct. There’s probably a reason. I can guarantee you, darling, if you bring him home and we can see in his eyes that you light up his entire world than we will love him just as much as you do. 

7. Baby, if he ever lays a finger on you, you fucking leave him. Don’t think twice, don’t look back and don’t you dare accept his apology two days later. 

8. If you can’t trust him you shouldn’t be dating him. If you have to go through his phone to sleep better at night he’s not the one for you.

9. You’re going to fight, you’re going to argue, that is all part of a relationship. But baby, if he is contradicting everything you say solely for the sake of an argument, just walk away.

10. I’ve seen anger and rage in your grandfather’s eyes. I saw it everyday for 17 years, baby. If losing a football game makes him so mad as to not want to speak to you, than you are giving yourself to the wrong boy. He’s going to grow, and he’s going to get meaner, and he’s going to hurt you. Leave now.  

11. If his laugh doesn’t claw it’s way into your memory and his smile doesn’t make you feel like the entire universe is right in front of you than you are wasting your time.

[Press Start] by kaizuka, Gen, 17k (WIP)
Yuuri wakes up one day to find himself thrown into an otome game-like reality, where his love interests seem to consist of figure skaters from the Grand Prix, and many of his actions are dictated by one of three choices that pop up in a text box that only he can see. And, as he’s quick to find out, the only way out of the game is to choose a love interest and see the blossoming romance through till the end! Thumbs up!

On ICE!!! by Watermelonsmellinfellon, Mature, 23k (WIP)
The first time Katsuki Yuuri saw Victor Nikiforov perform, he realized he had a great desire to see figure skating in a video game. In fifteen years, his dream is realized. Little does he know that Victor’s attention has been caught by the very game he unknowingly inspired. Love!

Pixelated Reality by chibilysis (xyrilyn), Teen, 9.1k (WIP)
Yuuri Katsuki is a Level 230 Arch Mage - the top ranking Arch Mage in Code Regius Online (CRO) - the world’s #1 Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game.Victor Nikiforov is a Level 190 Master Swordsman and Guildmaster of Fimbulwinter - a pirate/PK-killer guild. Strip away their online personas, however, Yuuri and Victor are but just two people trying to find their own place in the world.

all the dragons we have slain by brighter, Mature, 9.6k
This is why Yuuri loves gaming—the victory of it, the easy camaraderie amongst his guild, the sense that he’s part of something greater.Victor tells him, “you were incredible,” and maybe he loves that a little, too. Definitely recommend!

 Shall We Date? Let’s Skate! by Sakhyu, Teen, 4.5k (WIP)
“Shall We Date? Let’s Skate!” was the hottest dating sim game on the market … and it is also the video game one Yuuri Katsuki suddenly wakes up in. Now, Yuuri has to battle floating screens, pesky Quests, and … wait, what do you mean he’s now the main character?! Featuring poor, poor Gamer!Yuuri.

much ado about ADO by Vitali (exocara), Teen, 7.4k (WIP)
Yuuri’s first quest in the relatively popular VRMMORPG, Angels&Demons Online (ADO), was to seduce an NPC. He was trying to figure out just how to differentiate between NPCs and player characters, when he saw an angel with long silver hair and gorgeous blue eyes and thought to himself: That man is way too beautiful to be a player character.

Otome on Ice by Ethril, Teen, 9.9k (WIP)
Yuri K is a famous independent game tester that has a reputation for finding bugs and glitches that no one else can. He works mostly online through the pseudonym Eros and only gives his real name when hired to test games.Victor is the CEO of a major gaming company in Russia. Currently his top team is working on an Otome style game that they hope to turn into a RPG MMO in the near future, but first they need to do some serious testing. Christophe suggests they bring in the game tester Eros, whom they have worked with in the past, in order to test the new game “Otome On Ice”. Awesome fic so far!

Yuuri Katsuki Secret Route Walkthrough/FAQ by Metis_Ink, Gen, 2.2k
The otome community uncovers the mysteries of the Nikiforov-Katsuki Route, one of the most difficult and overly-complicated routes in a game supposedly just about ice skating. Rec’d by a follower!

  • Literally Everyone In This Fucking Game: Ciri is important, her blood possesses untold power and she's the heir to one of the most powerful kingdoms in the world. We have to make sure we can control her and use her power to its fullest potential.

the realm. do you know what the realm is? it’s the thousand blades of aegon’s enemies, a story we agree to tell each other over and over, until we forget that it’s a lie. but what do we have left, once we abandon the lie? chaos? a gaping pit waiting to swallow us all. chaos isn’t a pit. chaos is a ladder. many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. the fall breaks them. and some, are given a chance to climb. they refuse, they cling to the realm or the gods or love. illusions. only the ladder is real. the climb is all there is.

Regarding what platforms #SaveTheLight will be available for: we’re sorry for the vagueness on this so far. All we can say is that the game is *not* exclusive to one console. CN will be announcing the specific platforms, pretty soon I believe, and until they do we aren’t at liberty to provide any more details on that ourselves.

But otherwise: thank you SO much to everyone for all the interest and love for #SaveTheLight!! Our team (plus CN and crewniverse!) have been working so hard on it, and it’s no fun keeping secrets for so long – so it’s been awesome to finally reveal it and share in all the excitement :)

Masterlist

I implore you, read this.

Today I saw something that made me sick to my stomach. I saw a post about an anon who was bragging about sending another user hate with the intention to get them to deactivate. It makes me sick that people are like this. I will not disclose who this user is in any way. What do you gain from doing this to them? Why does this kind of stuff bring people joy and satisfaction. It’s sick. 

We are all simblr siblings, irregardless of which game we play, what we create, whether or not we use CC or not, we are all unified by our love for the sims games. It sickens me that people in our community get enjoyment out of hurting others in some fashion. 

No one deserves to get hate in any form, especially from people that are too weak and scared to say these things to your face. Lions don’t lose sleep over the opinions of sheep. I believe in this 100%. You should not value the opinions of hateful people, especially those too scared of coming forward without hiding their identity. I value these people about as much as a dog turd. Maybe even less. And so should you. 

And in the event you get anon hate, do not respond with “I have depression, anxiety, threaten to leave, pull downloads etc.” They will not feel sorry for you, it’s merely ammo to use against you and you’re giving them exactly what they want; a reaction” If someone calls you out privately or publicly, for something you said/did/posted, do not delete the post. It makes you look guilty. And while you may be ashamed of it, own it. Apologize and own it. I can guarantee the chances of having a positive reaction will increase tremendously if you own up to your mistakes. And it gives people less ammo to use against you. They can’t make you feel bad about something you’ve already apologized and owned up to. And honestly, you’ll feel so much better mentally by doing this. There’s a relief in owning up to the things you’ve done. If @cupidjuice can make the comeback of the century, then so can you. All they want from you is a reaction, for you to blow up and feel affected by their words. Don’t give in to this.

I refuse to be part of a community where people are scared of expressing themselves and doing things they enjoy out of fear of getting hate for it. While I can’t stop hateful people from being around, you can change how they react to you and how they treat you. If you don’t give them the reaction they crave, they have no motivation or reason to bother you. Don’t let them bother you. 

If you agree or would like others to see this, please reblog it for me.

I love you all. Be kind and stay safe.

A clown, cop, and kobold walk into a bar...

Context: We are playing a homebrew DnD/Urealms style game. I’m playing a humanoid avian clown, and the others are playing a kobold bard and a humanoid avian venomancer. The kobold is on a search for a “thiccc” avian of his dreams and our party is currently searching in an abandoned building.

DM: So, the guards are now unconscious. What do you do.
My character: Can we stab them now?
The venomancer and bard: NO.

DM: Kaiiko (the clown) hears a squeak under the floorboards.
Me: I roll to shoot it.
[I roll a 5.]
Everyone, again: STOP.

It turned out to be an irondwarf child. The venomancer ended up adopting her, but the discussion of her name deserves to be noted:
“She doesn’t give you a name.”
“Hmm… what should we name her?”
“Balloon! We came in here to find a balloon, so now we have one!”
“She’s… made of iron. She can’t even float.”
“She might turn into a balloon if we name her balloon!”

'But some people can't go vegan because of allergies and intolerances!'

You’re absolutely right!
And how do we fix that?
A higher variety of vegan food.

What do we need to get a higher variety of vegan food?
A higher demand for vegan food.

How can you help to help create a higher demand for vegan food?

BY GOING VEGAN.

STEP.

i find you can lose yourself in an acting sense in a fight far more easily than you can in a dialogue scene, and i love that about it. we try as actors all the time: we strive just to completely sort of lose ourselves in the moment, and we never quite get there, but in a fight, you can do it in seconds; that is what i love about it.

Boyfriend Tag - Jeff Atkins

Request: Reader is a youtuber who is doing the boyfriend tag with her boyfriend, Jeff, when he decides to pop the question 

A/N: The reader is in BOLD || Jeff is in Italics || They were friends for 2 years and have been dating for the last 5, just for clarification.

“Hey guys, it’s (y/n) and today I’m doing the boyfriend tag with my boyfriend, Jeff!”

“I’m very nervous for this.” Jeff said, letting out a chuckle.

“You shouldn’t be, the questions are fairly simple. Okay, so I have a list of the questions on my phone. There’s 30 questions but we aren’t doing all of them. We’re only doing 17, since we’ve known each other since we were 17.”

“Alright, so you’re going to read a few and then I’ll read a few?”

“Yep! Besides some of them are for me and some of them are for you.”

“What’s the first question?”

“First question is…when and where did we meet?”

“Oh, that’s easy. We met the beginning freshman year in high school in biology class.” You smiled at the fact that he remembered. The last 7 years with him had been magical and scary, but you had never been happier with anyone else.

“Wow, I’m impressed you remembered the class. Nicely done.” Jeff smiled, looking down at his hands. You were lucky. “Okay, next one. When and where was our first kiss?”

“We had our first kiss after we won the championship game for baseball. I think it was the end of junior year.”

“I remember that day like it was yesterday. You hit the home run that made you guys win. You and two other guys scored.” You tell him, kissing him quickly. “Question three: When did you meet my parents?”

“I met your parents right after we started dating junior year. Your mom loved me and your dad talked to me about baseball.”

“I met your parents at the championship game actually. That’s when you told them we were dating.” You looked up into his crystal blue eyes, grinning at him. You considered yourself lucky that he survived his accident during his senior year, you never took anything for granted ever, but you really made sure to be grateful everyday. “Question number four: what is the first thing I do in the morning?”

“You roll away from the window and pull all the blankets with you.” You laugh, slapping his arm playfully. “But if we’re being serious, she usually gets out of bed and makes coffee.”

“When the alarm goes off, you groan and roll over. Once you actually get up, you make breakfast while I pour you coffee.”

“I don’t want to sound cocky, but I do make pretty good waffles.”

“That’s so true. They could be chocolate chip, banana, blueberry, and they all taste amazing!”

“Time for question number five. Who is my BFF?”  You couldn’t help to burst out into laughter. “What’s so funny?”

“You sounded like a girl.” Explaining it to him made you laugh even more.

“Okay, let me rephrase the question. Who is my best friend that isn’t you?”

“Probably Clay. He tutored you in high school, he helped you get me. I think you guys have a lot of history together. What about me?”

“I think Hannah. She was there for you the entire time I was in the hospital after my accident. She was there when I couldn’t be. I think that that’s an important quality in a friend.”

“Aw, Jeff you’re not supposed to make me cry.” He looked down at you as you looked up at him. His arm wrapped around you tightly, pulling you into his side before he gently kisses the top of your head. The questions continued for several minutes and consisted of very different questions like your favorite animal or his favorite food. Eventually you reached the 16th question. “Okay, question number sixteen. Complete this sentence: My girlfriend is __________”

“My girlfriend is…my everything.” You grab his hand and intertwine his fingers with yours.

“My boyfriend is…the one person who completely understands me.” Jeff looks down at your hand and squeezes it lightly.

“I’m making up the last question. I promise it’ll be a good one.”

“Go ahead, Atkins. I trust you.”

“Okay,” He stood up before getting on one knee, pulling the ring from his back pocket of his jeans. “My question is…will you marry me?”

Loki Laufeyson needing cuddles during a thunderstorm would include...

Requested by anon
“Loki is in need of some cuddles during a thunderstorm”

and here we are

i relate to loki. thunderstorms scare the shit out of me. Especially in the middle of the night.

Let’s say this is the setting: before Thor 1 so Loki wasn’t evil and everyone was still friends. Takes place in Asgard. 

  • You have been friends with Thor and Loki since you were kids
  • because let’s say your parents were close with Odin and Frigga because of some like royal connection or whatever just roll with it
  • So, naturally, you lived in the palace
  • And after years and years, you and Loki started to date
  • You’ve been dating for a few months now but still have separate rooms
  • but #sleepovers
  • ok onto the full prompt
  • Loki may be the (adopted) (does he even know that yet?) brother of the god of thunder, but Asgard gets terrible storms.
  • So it’s been raining for a while now
  • and everyone has been ok because it’s just rain
  • but it’s the middle of the night and everyone is supposed to be a sleep when it turns into a thunderstorm
  • Loki cannot sleep
  • He is freaking out
  • Just because his brother loves thunder does not mean he does
  • He detests it
  • It scares him and he hates it
  • But he couldn’t tell anyone that when he was little, he would have been made fun of!
  • So he’s suffered through the fright for who-knows-how-many years, rocking in his room, unable to sleep, trying to block out the noise
  • Loki is sitting on his bed with his knees up to his chest, balancing a pillow on them with his head pushed against it
  • He’s so insanely tired, but cannot sleep at a time like this
  • You wake up to the loud thunder and decide: well, since you’re awake with little hope of falling back asleep until hours pass, you go to the bathroom and then to get something to drink
  • Which you pass by Loki’s room a few times
  • The first time you see his light on and decide the storm probably woke him up as well and he would go back to sleep soon enough
  • But when you pass by again there is a green light coming from the door
  • He doesn’t use his tricks a lot- especially at night when no one is around. He typically uses them when he helps Thor fight or is playing jokes on everyone else, but it was strange to see this
  • You knocked on the door and he was hesitant to reply
  • So you went inside
    • “Loki? What’s going on?”
    • *things off shelves flying around the room and he has a pillow stuffed in his face*
    • “Loki, what’s wrong?”
    • “Dear- It’s…it’s nothing.”
    • “Please don’t lie to me. I’m here for whatever you need.”
  • Loki slowly tells you his fear of thunderstorms. You, being the best, didn’t make fun of him like he thought you would. Instead, you gave him a hug.
    • “You’re not…laughing?”
    • “Of course not. Why would I? Plenty of people have fears, that should not be laughed at.”
    • “Because I’m the god of thunder’s brother.”
    • “So? You and Thor are completely different people. Who knows, maybe he’s scared of tricks.”
  • Loki was actually smiling after you said that
  • He, sadly, was not prepared for this amount of love to come from spilling his biggest fear
  • He was kind of happy you knew…now he could have someone to comfort him if he needed it when there were storms
  • And you had to agree with him, the storms in Asgard get pretty intense
    • You asked him how long he’s had this fear
    • “I don’t know…ever since I was a kid?”
    • “LOKI!”
    • he’s confused why you’re upset
    • “We were best friends as kids! We grew up together! And you never told anyone? Does your father even know?”
    • “Only you, my dear. I was afraid it would give everyone a reason to laugh.”
  • You proceeded to slap Loki
  • Looking outside, it did not appear that the storm would be stopping anytime soon
    • “Well, looks like neither of us will be getting sleep with this storm, Loki, what should we do?”
    • “We could cuddle.”
    • Silence and a smirk from you- “Did the trickster just propose we cuddle?”
    • “Well, unless you don’t-”
    • “OF COURSE I DO SHUSH”
  • Tada
  • You and Loki cuddle through the storm, playing word games and talking about anything that came across your minds
  • He plays with your hair, you play with his
  • He shows you how he’s learned new things with his magic, like drawing with green in the air
  • He draws a heart
  • While his heart is beating fast
  • fuckkkkkk, I think I love yn.
  • fuckkkkkk, I think I love loki.
  • But no one says anything
  • and both of you are slowly drifting off
  • Blinks are becoming longer as you listen to the sounds of rain and thunder
  • Words becoming less understandable as you both begin to fall asleep
  • Loki wakes up before you the next morning with you in his arms, a smile instantly coming across his face when he is reminded that you did not laugh at him, and that he loves you
  • he loves you
  • and shit, he is in deep.
