Beast!Adam x Reader

Prompt: What do you think of an imagine where the reader is Adam’s favorite character in a book, who he asks to see in the mirror at least once a day, slowly falling in love with her?

Note: Aaaaaaaah! <3 C U T E

Edit: I think I’m going to make this into a series? Someone please give me feedback? Thanks!

“It’s getting late, my little prince.” The kind queen chided her son as he sat upright in the bed. “I’m afraid it’s time for you to sleep now.”

“One more story! Please!” The young boy begged eagerly. After thinking for a long moment, the queen met the prince’s gaze. His eyes were sweet and blue, full on innocence. She sighed.

“All right, one more. And then, you must sleep. You have a big day ahead, you know.” Her smile was soft as she searched the small shelf in Adam’s room. What was there here that she hadn’t read to him yet? And then she found it.

It was an old book. One she hadn’t laid eyes on since she was at least a teenager. It had been a favorite of hers. The Girl Made of Starlight.

“Here’s one.” The queen sat down in the chair beside Adam’s bed. “I haven’t seen this book in a very long time.”

“Where was it?”

“Hiding, I suppose. Waiting for the right moment to make itself known. But nevertheless, the sooner we finish, the sooner you’ll be asleep.” She took a breath and opened the front cover. “Once, in the Kingdom of the Sun, there was a girl. To everyone around her, she appeared ordinary, boring and quaint. And as she grew up surrounded people who thought of her as nothing but standard, she began to believe that ordinary was all she ever was, all she could ever be. But that was not the case.”

“What was she?” Adam practically bounced with enthusiasm.

“Eager tonight, are we?” the queen smiled. “(Y/N) was truly more than just the daughter of the miller. She was a child of the stars.”

***

After reading a large portion of the book, the queen decided that it was getting far too late for her little prince to be awake given the events waiting for him the following day. So, despite his many, many protests, the queen placed a bookmark in her treasured favorite and put it on the shelf for another night.

But the queen never got to finish her story.

She soon fell to illness and became too sick to read. Soon after, she was gone. And as the kingdom grieved, the king became twisted. Her death was the end of him. And so was it the end of the Adam that was hopeful, the Adam that was kind.

Years later, when Adam had reached adulthood, came the curse that twisted him into an enormous, fearsome beast. The story of the star girl was long-forgotten. Adam spent years in isolation, wallowing in his misery. His selfishness had done this, his vanity. He had taken so much pride in his looks, in the beauty of the things he owned, and now that it was gone, he felt as though he had nothing.

As time passed, Adam ventured from his West Wing more and more. He didn’t want to gaze upon the cursed rose any more than he had to. It was only a reminder of his mistakes, of the grim deadline that hung over his head. The library became a refuge, a place where he could escape. The book the Enchantress had given him sat idle on his shelf, and instead, he found a home in literature. As he searched the shelf, something fell and hit the floor with a soft thud. He looked down, and there it was: The Girl Made of Starlight.

Adam slowly bent down and picked up the book with his massive paws. He brushed off the cover, and his blue eyes widened. Thoughts of his mother came rushing back to the surface. He was tempted to put the book back, to forget he had ever found it, but instead, he carried it over to the couch and began to read it.

Inside the pages of the book waited the story of (Y/N), the miller’s daughter, who was just about to discover she was not as normal as she had been raised to believe.

~Losing her mother had changed (Y/N). Every day, the glimmering star that hung around her neck only served as a reminder of the magnificent woman that had left her daughter behind. Her mother’s words were ingrained in her mind. With her last dying breaths, she had put the necklace around (Y/N)’s neck.

“Remember that there is light in everybody.” Her lips pulled into a frail smile as her husband and daughter sat beside her in tears. “And there is light in you. You don’t know it yet, but you will. No matter where you go, no matter how far you travel, I will always be with you.”

Iridessa squeezed (Y/N)’s hand as the life in her began to fade.

“You are a child of the stars. A beautiful girl with more power than you know.” She pressed a finger to the center of her chest and whispered a final goodbye as the life left her eyes. “I believe in you.”~

Adam took a deep breath and adjusted himself on the soft couch that sat beside the hearth. He had a feeling he would be there for a while.

***

Over the course of the week Adam had read the book at least twice a day, only taking brief breaks for meals and sleep. He was a man obsessed. He didn’t know why, but of all of the books in the library, this one had captured his attention better than anything he had ever read.

After finishing it for the tenth time, a strange idea occurred to him as he brushed past the enchanted rose that had doomed him to this fate, the wretched timer, an eternal reminder that his day was coming. Then, he would be stuck like this forever. Beside the rose sat the Enchantress’ mirror. The moment his eyes settled on it, he reached out for it.

He took a deep breath. This was stupid. This was a dumb idea. It would never work.

But what if?

“Show me…show me the girl made of starlight.”  

The surface of the mirror rippled, and then there she was, just as the book had described. Her hair had flooded with white, and her silver eyes shone like stars. Her cloak of the sky was wrapped around her shoulders, and the necklace her mother had given her hung around her neck.

She was running. From what, he didn’t know, but at the sight of her, after watching her and realizing she was real…or at least, she was real somewhere, he almost dropped the mirror. He took a long, labored breath. She was real. She was actually real. And she needed help.

***

Days passed. Adam tried not to watch her too often, but it was hard not to. She was real. She existed, and he couldn’t shake the feeling that there was someone or something after her. She always seemed to be rushed. She had quick meals in little taverns, and took cautious sleeps at haphazard inns. She carried very little and showed her face to very few, most often keeping hidden in her large cloak of the sky.

With her, she kept very few things. Aside from her cloak and necklace, all she had with her was a map, a worn leather book of stories, and a pouch of coins. There was something about the book with her. Adam knew it was important to her, but he didn’t know why.

Perhaps it was why someone was chasing her.

Again, I kind of want to do a series on this, so feedback would be awesome. I love you guys <3 

Do what makes you happy. Take care of yourself. Be carefree. We’re not going to live forever, and when you really think about it, it’s really not that long in the grand scheme of things. So live gracefully. Stop chasing towards material things and being someone that you’re not. Life is far too short to be anyone but yourself and to be doing anything that you’re not completely in love with.

jonghyun: i never saw someone close to their noona like i am. a few days ago my noona put on some make up and i said: “oh! what! oh, do you have something important?! going out so beautiful like that?!” i’m very used to say she’s beautiful that, even if she isn’t, if i think that today her look isn’t particularly good, words that she’s beautiful just come out naturally for me. 

i feel like lesbian love is always a dance…i’ve been thinking about how i view love lately and it is so much to think about. the idea of loving someone who is not viewed by culture as a complete person and of meeting them when you yourself aren’t a complete person either…i think people who aren’t lesbians don’t understand the trauma of having to constantly make a case for a life without men. and then beyond that even just of knowing a woman, that’s a beautiful thing and the most intense feeling on earth i think? women carry so much pain literally all of the time…i found a notebook the other day from forever ago where i wrote “loving you is heavy, girl, but not because you are too heavy” and i think that kinda sums up the constant exchange of comforting someone who is viewed as Less and giving yourself what you need and also accepting someone else’s life into your own…yeah. it is 9am and being a lesbian is a lot. 

“I think for me, beauty is sincerity. I think that there are so many different ways that someone can be beautiful. You know, someone so funny that it makes them beautiful no matter how they look, because they’re sincere in it. Or somebody who’s really emotional, and moody and thoughtful and stoic, but that makes them beautiful because that’s sincerely who they are. Or you look out into the crowd and you see someone so happy that they’re smiling from ear to ear, and that sincerity comes through. I think that’s what makes somebody beautiful. And I’ve never felt like there’s just one way to be beautiful, you know, tall or short, straight hair or curly, or whatever some people have their definitions of “their types.” You know, for me I think that when I meet someone and there’s that magical thing about them that makes them unforgettable, that they’re sincere and honest in whoever they are, be that funny, happy, sad, going through a rough time, sarcastic. I think that these personality traits that come through when somebody is really sincere is what makes them beautiful.”

Rap Monster: He knew that you felt insecure about your thighs because of your stretch marks, but he actually loved them. He thought they were beautiful and make you even more special, and he would always remind you about how much he loved them.

“Y/N, you are really beautiful. Who cares if your thighs have stretch marks? They are beautiful to me.”

By far the worst thing my ex did post-breakup was make me feel guilty for blocking her on social media.
If someone makes you uncomfortable, block them. If you don’t want them to see your posts, block them. If it makes you sleep better at night, block them. There’s no threshold for what someone has to do for you to block them. The beautiful thing about the internet is you can cultivate your own spaces and if you don’t want someone to be a part of that they don’t have to be. Put your happiness and comfort above the feelings of someone who doesn’t deserve your time. You’re allowed to do that.

“What?” She asked, tucking a piece of her hair behind her ear like she might have done if she were still on the Ark, talking to someone she liked.

“It’s nothing.”

“No— tell me.” She cupped his cheek.

“I like the sound of your laugh.” He said simply. “Before our wedding, I didn’t think you knew how to— and maybe I had forgotten how to myself. But it’s… it’s beautiful, Clarke. I just… if I can continue to make you laugh, then all that other shit doesn’t seem so bad anymore.”

She watched his wall come down piece by piece with every word and suddenly her own wall didn’t seem so sturdy.

I could love him.

anonymous asked:

i always get very insecure when i see the beautiful female idols and girl group members because i know i can never look like them and idk. i'm too emotional tonight

awww love please don’t!!! trust me i felt like that too a couple months ago… it got so bad i started starving myself and my mom found out… and it turned into this really big thing… since then i have learned a lot :) 

NEVER EVER DO THAT YOU ARE PERFECT AND I LOVE YOU!!!!

YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL AND GORGEOUS IN YOUR OWN WAY! DON’T LET ANYONE MAKE YOU FEEL UGLY B/C YOU ARE PERFECT JUST THE WAY YOU ARE! Never think less of yourself. Don’t ever wish to be or look like someone else. Stop comparing yourself to others.Stop worrying so much about what other people think. We all have our strengths and weaknesses. One day you will realize how beautiful you are. Why not make that day today? It’s only when you accept yourself that you will truly be free.

I HECKING LOVE YOU!

“You know..I’ve never really gotten to know how truly lovely those ruby hued optics are.
Zen, why do you look so nervous? Does me being this close make you afraid? Or does it make you too excited to move and give me a worried like facade..? Tch. I could remove that silly little frown right off your face now if I wanted, but I won’t. Someone as beautiful as you deserves a proper greeting by someone as truly handsome as me.
I can’t say that I hate this cute face of yours anymore, even if you do insult my precious Eliza..but I suppose I’ll let that slide right now. What are you thinking about?
You’re so cute when you’re shy, Hyun..”
Jumin leaned forward, kissing the other tenderly. He couldn’t believe he was doing this, especially to the person who’s been his enemy from the start, but he just didn’t care any longer.

“You deserve someone who loves you with every single beat of his heart, someone who thinks about you constantly, someone who spends every minute of every day just wondering what you’re doing, where you are, who you’re with and if you’re OK. You need someone who can help you reach your dreams and who can protect you from your fears. You need someone who will treat you with respect, love every part of you, especially your flaws. You should be with someone who can make you happy, really happy, dancing-on-air happy.”

She’s the breath of fresh air when you’re drowning.
She’s the light in a room full of darkness, guiding you in the right direction
She’s the one that motivates you to be a better person.

Her soul is pure and unique, untouched and waiting to be touched by someone who only understands it completely.
Thats all she deserves.

Her mind is mysterious, but so beautiful.
Easy to read, but difficult to grasp, making me crave more of her.

Her heart is out of this world, so good that you’d never think she belonged in this generation.
Putting others before herself is something truly special.
So special that I makes you question why you settled for anything less in the past.

She is what you deserve.
She is your world, your life, and your constant.
The one who you know isn’t going to give up on you, even when times get tough.
She is willing to hold your hand through your battles without any intention of changing who you are.
She loves you for who you are, your imperfections and your countless perfections.

There is no such thing as flaws with her,
I see her like a piece of art.
Something that belongs in a museum.
Something priceless.
No amount of money could satisfy her worth.

People like her don’t show up often in your life and you’d be god damn silly to give someone like her up.
She’s the one you’d never put yourself in a position to lose.
You want to keep her close and safe.
You want to protect her from the big, scary world out there and keep her close in your arms because that’s where her home is.

You question your previous love life when this person shows up in your life.
She’s worth fighting for.
Fairytales and fantasies didn’t exist before her.
She is your dream come true.
