He looked anxious, the shadows under his eyes more pronounced. Kit wanted to go across the table and put his arms around Ty the way he had the night before, on the roof. He felt intensely protective of the other boy, in a way that was strange and unnerving. He’d cared about people before, mostly his father, but he’d never wanted to protect them. He wanted to kill anyone who would try to hurt Ty. It was a very peculiar feeling.

One of my favourite Swedish words is “rappakalja”

Why?

Because it is loanword from Finnish, which is quite rare, and also there is a funny story behind it. You see, once upon time there was a Finnish word “rapakalja” which meant “bad beer” (lit. mud beer). For some reasons Swedes liked it and it got adopted to Swedish… Only that now it got extra “p” and means “gibberish / nonsense”. And it really is a loan from Finnish, I checked from the official Swedish ordbok. 

I really wonder what happened that they came up with that. Maybe they got bad beer in Finland and things turned out to be confusing?

Anyway, Finnish stopped using the word rapakalja for some reason. It still exists in some dialects but honestly I have never heard anybody using it… Until somebody invented this funny game where the idea is to cheat others to believe in weird explanations. In Sweden, they decided to call the game “rappakalja”, because it is quite confusing and nonsense game.

Finland has this lovely habit of taking all the things from Sweden and pretty soon that game ended up there with the same name, and became quite popular. Rappakalja is still not official Finnish word, but it is sometimes understood as “confusing”.

So that is how Swedish once got a word from Finnish and then later sold it back with new shiny form.

Some Undertale Headcanons

I figured I’d post these and contribute something to this fandom. Some of these are from my brain and others were influenced by other posts or fan fics. Anyway these are a few of my headcanons for various undertale characters x reader.

Papyrus

-he’s actually pretty good at cooking spaghetti and when he cooks for you on a date he makes the spaghetti from scratch and it’s delicious.

-he always plans something really fun for a date and even if some of his ideas are a little childish or strange you always end up having a blast 

-he makes you shirts for your dates (like his “cool dude” shirt) that are very cute and while you were originally a bit embarrassed about wearing them you eventually end up wearing them all the time because they’re comfy and he always looks so happy when you wear them.

-in terms of intimacy he really wants to make you feel good and to make sure you’re comfortable. He spends a lot of time learning what he should do and then has a long conversation with you about what you like and what you need to make sure he does everything perfectly

Sans

-he flirts with you through his puns and enjoys saying really cute things that make you blush

-however he gets flustered VERY easily and just the smallest of sweet comments will make him go very blue and he’ll spend the next hour at Grillby’s underneath his hood blushing furiously because he can’t stop thinking about you

-once he realizes you’re flirting with him he has no idea how to handle it starts to act really nervous around you until you finally drag him to Grillby’s on a date because every time you’ve asked him out he’s just cracked jokes because he doesn’t know how to deal with his emotions

-the first time you kiss him he practically passes out

-He regularly tells you that you are the best thing to ever happen to him

W. D. Gaster

-the first time he rips through the void to see you it absolutely terrifies you and while you can see signs of his presence for the next few weeks (like late night dishes being clean in the morning and revisions on your essays) he doesn’t try to contact you again

-you start leaving him notes and cups of tea when you go to bed

-you still have to call out to him to get him to finally materialize which he is very scared to do because he doesn’t want to frighten you again

-he loves to talk to you about science and his eyes just light up when he gets going, even if you don’t understand what he’s talking about you still love when he talks about science stuff with you

-when he gets flustered he gets gloopy and starts to speak in wingdings until he calms down

-he thinks you are incredibly beautiful and doesn’t understand why you would like a messed up monster like him

-it takes forever for him to be comfortable with letting you get close to him physically, eventually he lets you get close to him and you start having cuddle sessions with him 

-because he can influence the form of his body he is the best. cuddler. ever.

Grillby

-very easily flustered and its super noticeable since he goes bright blue and you have almost too much fun making him blush

-he is very skilled at healing magic and when you fall victim to your own clumsiness he patches you up

-and lectures you on being more careful

-which you both know will have zero affect on your future actions

-his chuckle is the sound of a fire crackling

-however when he really laughs its a loud bellowing laugh as well as the crackling but to laugh like that he has to open his mouth which he rarely does as it looks quite monsterish and he’s super self-concious about it

-one day when hanging out at his place you tell a joke that makes him laugh very hard and its the first time you actually see his mouth, you think it is the coolest thing ever.

-he, however, is mortified and locks himself in the bathroom for half an hour while you call through the door to try and get him to come out, eventually when he realizes you haven’t run away he comes out blushing and the bathroom is filled with steam - which is his form of crying - and you reassure him that you aren’t afraid

-his biggest fear is that you will find something about him terrifying and it will scare you away

-he is incredibly worried about burning you so it takes a long time to get him comfortable with being physical with you

-he is also nervous about you being around any open flame, even a candle, which is mostly because burns are the one thing he can’t heal

Mettaton

-as flirty as he is, he doesn’t actually know much about relationships and is very nervous when he finds himself falling for you

-he doesn’t blush, but when he overheats his fans start whirring and the sound is very noticeable when its quiet, he also happens to be very embarrassed about it

-he doesn’t know how to handle it when you ask him about why his fans are always running and he begs Alphys to make them quieter which she says she can’t so the next time you fluster him he turns the fans off which causes him to get way too hot and glitchy and he eventually has to force shut down which terrifies you

-you take him to Alphys who figures out what happened rather quickly and when she gets his systems back online she yells at him for turning off his fans just because he likes you so much that he gets very flustered around you very fast and that’s how you find out he has a crush on you

-he loves to get you gifts but he really just wants to do what will make you happy, and if that’s movie night then that’s what you do

-that being said when he can get you out in public he does because he just adores showing you off to the world

-he marvels at your body, your softness, your curves, and he regularly tells you how beautiful you are

-he’s incredibly gentle and in terms of intimacy he is very vocal, asking you just what you want and he picks up on what you like an don’t like very quickly

BTS reacting to you surprising them for their 4-Year Anniversary

Jin:

Jin, who was already in his feels from being on stage with his members, enjoying the time with his fans, let a tear roll down his handsome, beautiful, symmetric, perfect, worldwide-handsome face. He felt so incredibly happy to see his beloved girlfriend standing behind stage, waiting for him with his favorite cake. He loved whenever you baked him this cake, and it just made him even happier to have you here with him during such an important milestone of his career. He ran up to you and wrapped you tightly in his arms, your head resting against his broad shoulders. He pressed his lips firmly against your forehead, whispering “Thank you for being here for me.”

Taurus and Aries:

Probably one of the most problematic pairings in the Zodiac, Aries and Taurus don’t have many differences but the ones they do have can be quite vital in the relationship. Aries in an incredibly independent sign, and likes to enjoy fun, light hearted relationships with the person they love whereas Taurus has a tendency to emotionally invest in a relationship with someone they really love.  Aries being a fiery, passionate sign can be very carefree with their relationships, often doing before thinking and this can really upset Taurus who tends to get quite jealous or possessive when they feel their relationship is threatened but this is only because they put so much thought and care into the relationship and they’ll be damned if something is going to mess it up. Taurus’ temper can match that of an Aries, sometimes even outdo it but as Aries’ let go of arguments as quickly as they arise, Taurus is one to hold onto that for a long time and can withdraw from their partner if trust and stability is broken. Aries love to win, and when they do they tend to rub their partners nose in it but when they lose, they pretend it never happened, this can anger Taurus since it’s not fair to them.

However with the right level of understanding, this pairing can create a comfortable yet exciting atmosphere. Taurus is the most passionate of the earth signs which appeals to Aries nature. Taurus is a very sensual sign, appreciating things like good food and massages regardless of how simple or it might be. They know just how to pamper Aries, which they enjoy as much an Aries does. They’re very good at handling Aries’ temper since they’re much slower to anger, it builds up over time, which is good for Aries because it means someone is keeping a firm grip and isn’t going to blow up back in their face right away. Aries can bring Taurus out of their comfort zone – for better or for worse- and should pay attention to Taurus’ limits if they want to avoid upsetting their partner greatly – Taurus’ need stability and nothing would break their heart more than their own partner to break it for them. This pairing needs a lot of work and a lot of communication, they need to learn to stay calm and patient but potentially this pairing could be very rewarding.

Taurus and Taurus:

As compatible as same sign pairings are, they all have their flaws, materialism and insensitivity are two big ones in this relationship. Taureans are very materialistic signs, the house and the car are a BIG part of commitment for them because it represents a comfortable, functional home, which is important to Taurus. Materialism can be good sometimes in that you end up with a nice home and a lot to show for it but the problem with it when in relationships is that, the flame can die out and at the end of the day, when asked “Why do you stay in the marriage if you’re not happy?” Taurus’ answer could be “Well there’s the house… and the car.” As for insensitivity, Taurus’ can be insensitive to one another which means emotional issues in the relationship could cause more disruption than they would in other pairings. What I’m trying to get across here is that Taurus’ determined, materialistic nature could lead to them seeing the relationship as more of a goal, something to be completed and by the time they realise that that’s not what relationships are about, their feelings for each other could’ve changed completely.

However this pairing is incredibly compatible despite the setbacks mentioned above! This is possibly the most secure pairing in the Zodiac. Both partners are very loyal and emotionally invested in the relationship. They have a mutual understanding on the importance of the relationship to each other meaning they’re more likely to make it work. Both signs have incredible patience which means fights are quite rare, they won’t fight about trivial things making the relationship a very peaceful one. Both partners are sensual and romantic, constantly pampering each other and making small romantic gestures. The reason this relationship is one of the safest is because both partners will tend to be quite dependent on each other and the chances of one of them getting cold feet and backing out is slim because they fall in love very carefully, making sure they’re certain of their love/attraction for this person. This pairing is one of the easiest if the two can manage to keep the creativity flowing and the flame glowing, this can be a lifelong love.

Taurus and Gemini:

Taurus and Gemini are generally not a very compatible pairing, mainly because Earth and Air signs don’t mix very well, but there are also characteristics exclusive to these signs as to why they’re not compatible. Taurus is quite a jealous lover, preferring to have their partner to themselves and getting quite upset if they feel their partner is straying whereas Gemini hates to be tied down by someone, they’re known as the sign who have trouble with staying faithful and this is a huge no-no for Taurus. Taurus’ safe and secure nature isn’t exciting or challenging enough for Gemini who is always full of new ideas and goals. Gemini always needs new things to keep them busy and Taurus might now be able to keep up, preferring the comfort of home and security. Gemini, being an impulsive liar can end up hurting and manipulating Taurus without noticing it, causing Taurus to build their wall and dig up their hatchet.

However, like with every pairing, this one has a lot of potential. Taurus has a love of the arts which can spark a real intellectual stimulation in Gemini which is what they really need, it might even bring out their creative side and encourage them to produce new ideas. You need quite a lot of patience to be able to put up with a Gemini, not particularly in a bad way, it’s just they’re constantly jumping from one thing to another. Luckily, Taurus has more than enough patience to tolerate this as long as Gemini is willing to meet some of their needs too. Both signs are insensitive to an extent so there’s mutual understanding when it comes to comforting and emotions etc. which can benefit especially Gemini. Taurus’ seem to lack imagination and creativity but when in partnership with Gemini, Taurus can be exposed to new ideas and may find interests they never knew they had. Both signs are quite humorous so a good friendship can make a good foundation. If Gemini can be careful with Taurus’ emotions and if Taurus allows Gemini to have their space, this pairing can work.

Taurus and Cancer:

This pairing is generally quite compatible but it’s not without its faults. Both signs are very possessive in their relationships. They don’t really mean to be, it’s just a defence mechanism more than anything, since both of these signs tend to root their emotional security in their relationships. Taurus’ possessive nature stems from their need for emotional stability and Cancers’ stems from deep seated insecurity. Because of this, there’s the possibility that the relationship could turn toxic, so they need to be cautious of that and make sure they don’t get too carried away and swept up in the relationship. Taurus’ can come off as insensitive which to sensitive Cancer can seem upsetting and hurtful, as if Taurus doesn’t care. Cancers are naturally very manipulative signs, they manipulate to keep themselves safe, sometimes without noticing. Taurus, who values loyalty and trust above all can feel cheated and betrayed if Cancer’s manipulative qualities shine through. This can cause Taurus to either lash out or shut down, either way holding resentment for Cancer, in turn hurting them.

However this pairing has been known to be quite successful due to the loyalty and nurture involved in the relationship. Both signs require and provide undying loyalty to each other which promises a strong, long lasting relationship. Both signs like to take care of each other in different ways, Taurus makes Cancer feel pampered and treated, while Cancer turns a house into a home which Taurus greatly appreciates. This pairing is the classic “settled couple” stereotype in that their relationship has solid foundations and can last a lifetime. Both signs are very involved and tuned in with one another since relationships are a big part of their lives. If Taurus can try to provide more empathy and sympathy, Cancer might be less inclined to let their manipulative side get the better of them.

Taurus and Leo:

Fire and Earth signs tend to be a tricky match and Taurus and Leo are no exception. Leo’s have a naturally flirty energy about them which Taurus can sometimes misunderstand as “flirting with other people”. This can annoy Leo since they don’t like other people to have a grip on them. Although Taurus’ enjoy equal partnership, they desire to be the breadwinner and “master of finance”, Leos however want absolute dominance because they prefer to be the centre of the relationship. This can lead to disagreements and although Taureans are patient signs, they’re also quite headstrong and when Leo challenges that with their own stubbornness, calmness will go out the window. Leo’s pride could end up getting wounded by Taurus’ possessiveness, as they need constant adoration of some form and if Taurus isn’t providing it, they’ll look for it somewhere else. In bad situations, this relationship could just deteriorate to a title.

As with any pairing, this one does have its upsides. Both signs are incredibly loyal to each other and nothing could prevent them from being faithful. Leos have a bright and exciting outlook on life, when Taurus is introduced to this perception, their love can become less heavy and dense. This way, the relationship is still loyal and trustworthy but not as heavy and daunting as earth sign’s love generally is. Taurus being an incredibly sensual sign, is excited by Leo’s passion for romance and sex. Leos are a sucker for those who can shamelessly proclaim their love for them and Taurus has absolutely no trouble doing so. Taurus loves to pamper and treat their lovers and Leo loves to receive that treatment. Another thing that ensures a long lasting between these two is that neither of them like change, if they have made a commitment with each other, it will take a lot for them to break it and create any inharmonious change.

Taurus and Virgo:

As compatible as earth signs are together they have their faults. Both signs are incredibly determined to make the relationship stable and long-lasting that without really noticing, the spark could go out and the relationship could go stale. Virgo, being the main perfectionist and neat freak of the zodiac, might unintentionally start nit-picking at Taurus which could irritate Taurus and maybe even hurt them a bit. If Taurus’ hidden rage and resentment becomes apparent to cool, passive aggressive Virgo, it can be incredibly repelling. As passive as Virgos are, they have a very sharp tongue and know just which words can make someone tick. If they use this against Taurus and cross any form of line, Taurus’ will hold onto it and never let it go, psychologically punishing Virgo in whatever way they see fit. Neither signs have much of a capacity for emotions which can make the emotional issues more difficult to deal with than usual.

However if the signs keep the relationship exciting this match can most definitely be successful. Both signs thrive in stable relationships and will combine Virgo’s rational-type-determination with Taurus’ romance oriented determination to create a secure, sensual relationship. Virgos generally have a very strong libido which can simultaneously be satisfied by and excite Taurus’ sensuality. Taurus has endless determination and patience which Virgo values and appreciates above most. Both signs are very humorous which means a good friendship between them can make a strong foundation for them to build on. Neither of these signs likes to be put too far out of their comfort sign which means both partners are quite content to keeps things the way they are. If these two can keep the relationship fun and stimulating, this pairing could be one for life.

Taurus and Libra:

Even though Taurus and Libra are the most compatible signs for each other, they do have their downsides. Libra being a very gentle and conflict-avoiding lover can be scared or thrown off my Taurus’ (hardly provoked yet terrifying) rage. Libra’s live and breathe love (whether it’s romantic or platonic) and have a flirtatious air about them. Taurus may confuse this for Libra being flirty with others and may take it very personally and hold resentment. Because of Libra’s hate for conflict and confrontation, they’ll often take the blame in relationships and apologise first to restore the relationship to its initial state of harmony. Taurus may use this to their disposal which can be quite unfair and upsetting to Libra. However Librans can be quite critical in their partnerships, in pursuit of the perfect partner. This may make Taurus feel self-conscious or insecure, making them retreat into themselves.

However, like I said, these signs are the most compatible signs for each other. Both signs LOVE partnership and value it equally but for different reasons which gives diversity to the relationship. Taurus is a very sensual partner, adding the spice to Libra’s love of romance to create a very dream-like relationship which can be a very relaxing aspect of their lives, the part where they can unwind and let loose. Both signs have a love for the arts, Taurus loves the arts that appeal to the senses (music, visual art, photography) and Libra loves the intellectual based arts (writing of all types, theatre). If Taurus isn’t too forceful with their stability, they can provide good grounding for Libra’s who sometimes tend to float from reality. If Taurus can learn to accept Libra’s flirty nature and not take it so seriously and Libra can ease up on the criticism, this match is very well suited for a long-term relationship.

Taurus and Scorpio:

These two signs are opposites, sister signs. As with any pairing that consists of opposites, it can either go really well or horribly wrong, depending on the amount of effort both signs are willing to put into it. Both of these signs are the most resentful, grudge-holding of the Zodiac which means that when they have a serious falling out, it will take them ages, if ever to restore harmony to the relationship. Both signs have a vicious temper when provoked which makes them a very dangerous couple if they’re aggressively inclined. Both signs are insensitive to each other’s emotions and since both feel things very deeply, this can lead to them getting very hurt. Taurus’ likes to have financial dominance in the relationship but Scorpio demands full control. Scorpios don’t enjoy being reliant and being relied on, and Taurus’ tend to be quite dependent in relationships.

However sister signs can be very compatible if they can understand their differences. Both signs expect nothing less than absolute loyalty from their partner and give it back in return, making a very stable foundation to build on. Scorpios need a lot of time for self-reflection and self-discovery in their lives and thus need a partner who will be patient and willing to let them grow. Patient Taureans are perfect for this. Taurus’ are very insensitive signs and might also have a problem communicating their emotions to their partner. Scorpios, being water signs, are very intuitive, and can tell when Taurus’ is having a hard time or is upset and can respond accordingly to avoid a big confrontation about it but at the same time comforting them. Scorpio can benefit from Taurus’ stability greatly since they need someone to keep them steady while they find themselves. Both signs are very emotionally resilient which promises a long lasting relationship. If these signs are willing to compromise, understand and accept each other’s differences, this can make a very promising relationship.

Taurus and Sagittarius:

Taurus and Sagittarius can be a very tricky match, as fire and earth signs generally are, but Sagittarius’ adventurous nature could compromise it even more. Sagittarius’ hate possessiveness, being the free-spirited learner of the Zodiac, Sagittarius needs freedom in a relationship if they’re going to make it work which means Taurus’ jealous nature could repel them. Taurus’ like to settle, to have a home type relationship but Sagittarius’ find it ridiculously hard to settle. Taurus’ craves structure and stability which Sagittarius doesn’t have, on the contrary, they can be quite irresponsible and tactless. Whereas Sagittarius’ are quite optimistic, Taureans are very rational and although Sagittarius can benefit from that, it could also bore them. Sagittarius’ have no time for grudges and resentment, and thus, if Taurus is going to try hold it over them, they will just back out.

This pairing can learn a lot from each other though if they are willing to compromise with one another. Taurus’ love for the arts and their sensual nature can appeal to Sagittarius a lot seeing as they love learning and experiencing things. Over time, as they get used to it, Sagittarians can find comfort in having stability and even find a way to make it exciting for both of them. Taurus can show the beauty of the home, romantic contentment and simplicity and Sagittarius can show Taurus the wonders of the outside world and things beyond their knowledge. This may scare Taurus but Sagittarius will be there to hold their hand. Basically, this relationship is one in which both partner s learn an awful lot about life, the world and themselves. If Taurus allows Sagittarius to satisfy their restlessness and Sagittarius makes an effort to commit to the relationship, this relationship will be a happy one.

Taurus and Capricorn:

Like other earth pairings, this one can be really good but also has its drawbacks. Capricorn is a very ambitious, work oriented sign and Taurus being a very home oriented yet ambitious sign, may feel challenged and neglected at the same time. They like to be financially dominant in the relationship and if their partner is outdoing them they may feel belittled. Capricorns are also very independent signs and need their own space, whereas Taurus’ who invest everything into their relationships can be quite dependent on their partner, sometimes overstepping boundaries. This can result in Capricorn feeling smothered and trying to back out. Capricorns can be quite pessimist which does effect the ending result of the relationship; whether or not it’ll work. Where Capricorn likes to be in control, Taurus can be possessive which can result in a power play between the two. If the two signs get caught up in just making the relationship last for the sake of the title, the relationship can grow stale.

However there is a lot to be said for this pairing, as earth signs are generally very successful in long-term relationships. Both enjoying stability and structure, the foundation of this relationship is very strong and sturdy. Taurus’ being the sign of comfort and sensuality loves to pamper and treat Capricorn who works hard and is quite self-sacrificial in their work (they tend to be stressed a lot). Capricorn notices Taurus’ practical potential and encourages them to be more disciplined and ambitious. A long-lasting relationship between these two will result in a very luxurious, materialistic home, since Taurus enjoys retail therapy and Capricorn can help make sure Taurus is being smart with their money. Capricorns buy things of high quality and longevity. If these signs can establish good boundaries, keep things interesting and meet each other half way, they can really work.

Taurus and Aquarius:

Earth and Air combinations are always quite an unusual pairing, Taurus and Aquarius are no exception to that. Aquarius loves freedom and individuality above all else. They do not care if their partner is jealous and they also won’t care if their partner is trying to make them jealous, seeing as they don’t have a jealous bone in their body. They really won’t appreciate Taurus’ jealous/possessive streak. The defence mechanism of an Aquarius is generally to pull away the more their partner pushes and since Taurus (out of desperation most likely because of their emotional investment) will push to try to make things right, Aquarius will keep pulling away. Both signs here are very opinionated and may clash on certain subjects (some may be quite important to either of them). Taurus craves intimacy and sensuality whereas Aquarius is more interested in a meeting of the minds and isn’t quite bothered with romance.

However these two can also be the pairing to move mountains. Aquarius is a very unconventional thinker and likes to come up with philosophies and ideas. Taurus comes across very strong and has the means to make these ideas and philosophies really sit with people. Working together, these two are a very influential couple. Although they don’t admit it, Aquarius’ needs routine, they may not like it, but they need it, Taurus naturally provides this for Aquarius without any confrontation that Aquarius may find embarrassing. Both signs value and desire and equal relationship, team work. Taurus provides unlimited patience while Aquarius deals with their own mind which can often kick up a storm when on the verge of a new idea. Aquarius can show Taurus all the benefits of intellectual stimulation, and show them new ideas that will really make them think and question. If Taurus can learn how to control their possessiveness and Aquarius can extend some intimacy, this pairing makes the perfect team.

Taurus and Pisces:

Earth and water signs tend to go quite well with one another, mainly because water is fluid and can change to suit the situation. However Pisces is a sensitive soul and can be scared of Taurus’ rage if they ever crossed them enough. Pisces don’t like conflict and will normally hold more of a passive aggressive stance in relationships. When Taurus isn’t getting the reaction they want, they’ll only go further, forcing Pisces to possibly shut down the emotional part of their psyche as a defence. Pisces can also be manipulative at the best of times when they want something. If Taurus catches on to this they can be greatly upset and hold onto it throughout the relationship. Taurus might be too overbearing in the relationship and Pisces as a very mutable sign likes to be able to flirt with other possibilities. Both signs can be quite delusional when it comes to their relationships, refusing to see something if they’re not happy with it. This can turn the relationship dangerous if they’re not careful.

However this pairing is also a very understanding one. Both tend to invest their emotions in their relationships so they both treat it with care and there isn’t a case of one person being more involved than the other, which is normally a problem for Taurus. Both of them hold the same values in the relationship; harmony and stability, which means there’s rarely any misunderstanding in the relationship or any kind of “what are we?” type questioning. Pisces being a very spiritual and transcendent sign can make the relationship a very awakening experience, mixed with Taurus’ sensuality, the energy between the two is very intense. Pisces’ intuition allows them to sense when something is wrong with Taurus and will do whatever they can to make them feel better. Pisces and Taurus relationships are usually very empathic in an unspoken way. Taurus doesn’t like to take risks which makes Pisces feel secure and safe while they dream away. With enough discipline on Pisces part, and self –control on Taurus’, this partnership is incredibly successful.

FRED WEASLEY X READER (AMORTENTIA)

word count: 2751

Y/N was the brightest witch of her age. There was no one like her, not in her house, not even in Hogwarts. She was in Gryffindor, although sometimes she thinks she should have been sorted in Ravenclaw. But the Sorting Hat never makes mistakes.

Anyways, she was the best in her classes. Even better than Hermione, which is something very rare, quite frankly. She knows how to do any potion and more spells that she should know at her age of sixteen. However, there was something she couldn’t achieve.

“Y/N, you’re staring again,” said your friend, Katie Bell. You were in potions class, daydreaming again. Again. “You know, you should just tell him.”

“What?” you ask, snapping out of your trance. “What do you mean? I was just staring into blank space,” you try to shrug it off.

“Can’t fool me. I know you fancy Fred, Y/N,” she says, rather loudly.

“Shut up!” you hiss at her. “Just because you know it doesn’t mean every one in this class has to!” you whisper yell at her and then sigh. “I don’t just fancy him, Katie. It’s been three years.”

Katie wanted to say something but Snape anounced that class was dismissed. You quickly got up, took your things and hurried to catch up with your two bestfriends, Fred and George. They were one year older than you, but that didn’t matter to neither of you, regardless of what people might think or say.

“Hello, Gred and Forge,” you say as you smile briskly.

“Hi, Y/N,” they say in unison. “Heard what Snape said today about that stupid Amortenta potion? Rubbish.” George rolls his eyes. “You can’t make someone love you just with some potion.”

“It’s Amortentia, and yes, you can. Although only for a certain amount of time,” you say confidently.

“Is that so, Y/N?” Fred asks, raising a ginger eyebrow and looking at you. “Bet you don’t have the guts to use it on Malfoy to fall in love with George,” he winks. You both burst out laughing, but George rolls his eyes.

“Maybe you could use it on Y/N, you complain you don’t have anyone to cuddle with anyway,” George says, as Fred blushed furiously.

And then it clicked. You stopped laughing. It just happened that you had the most brilliant idea ever.

***

“Katie! Katie! I have a brilliant idea!” you run to her, already panting.

“What is it?” she asks bewildered.

“You know Amortentia, right?” you ask as she nods. “Well, I could use it on Fred, you know, and since I can make it only last one day, I can just… for one day, feel like he loves me back,” you smile sadly, looking down.

“A-are you sure it’s a good idea?” Katie seemed worried. You kind of understood her worry; it’s not quite ideal to use a love potion on a close person, or any person. If it’s not meant to be, then it’s not meant to be.

“I mean, what could go wrong? He won’t remember anything the next day… and I’ll be happy with him for just one day…”

Katie sighs. “If you weren’t that good of a witch I wouldn’t even let you think about it.”

Hours passed and you tried to finalise the love potion. You made sure everything was put in the right order at least twenty times, just to be sure Fred won’t get hurt or anything. When you were done, you sat on the chair, staring at your potion and thinking: is it really worth to do all of this, just to have one day with Fred as your boyfriend? After tomorrow, you’ll be even more in love with him, you’ll be more hurt that he doesn’t love you back. You’ll be even more heartbroken. But if this meant only one day of happiness, you were ready to risk it.

You put five drops of potion in a cake you bought.

It was night, so tomorrow he was going to be madly in love with you.

You put the cake on a plate and went towards the Gryffindor common room. You took a deep breath before entering, only to find Fred, Katie and George on the couch.

“Hi, guys, I-I brought some cake,” you say, bringing all the attention on you and you blush. You were, indeed, a bit shy, especially when it came to Fred.

Katie looks at you with hope in her eyes and smiles in a mysterious way. “I’m not really hungry, I’m just gonna go to bed. George, are you coming?” she said.

“We shall let the birds alone,” he says and they both disappear, but not before they both send you a wink.

You sit down next to Fred, but not too close. “Want some?” you ask as you cut a piece for yourself and one for him.

You both ate and talked about different and random things. You couldn’t help but notice he was also acting a bit strange and you started to wonder if you had read the instructions wrong and the potion was starting to take effect now, but that thought washed away as he somehow got back to his funny self. You were impatient and excited, but also felt a bit guilty that you practically were using him as a toy to yourself. But regardless, you couldn’t wait for tomorrow, so tiredness took over you and Fred very easily, so you went to bed not so short after.

The next day

You woke up, feeling slightly strange, knowing that you took Amortentia as well, but it didn’t have any emotional effect on you since you already love Fred, but it sure did affect you physically, because you threw up two times before going to get breakfast.

You hesitantly walked into the Great Hall, knowing that the potion had already did its job, but you were a bit scared. You didn’t know what to do if the others would notice that suddenly, Fred was going to be affectionate with you. They’d find it odd. Katie was the only one who knew.

You saw the twins’ ginger heads from the entrance and Katie next to George, and you walked up to them and sat next to Fred. “Good morning,” you say quietly.

Fred was the first to turn to you and a big smile spread across his face. “Good morning, love,” he put and arm around your shoulders and kissed you on the cheek. You widened your eyes and blushed furiously. Clearly, it was all worth it.

You looked at Katie and George and they were abstaining from laughing, because let’s face it, your reaction was priceless. You looked shocked that Fred Weasely himself, was flirting with you. You thought about it a little, then decided to give in to it. It’s just one day, anyway.

As his hand was on your shoulders, you intertwined your fingers with his and leaned your head on his shoulder. The amount of butterflies you had in your stomach was huge, but you enjoyed it very much. As Katie and George got into a conversation, Fred turned to face you. “How are you, Y/N?”

“I’m… hungry, actually. I threw up twice this morning,” you just now notice all the food on the table. You let go of Fred’s hand (even though you didn’t want to) and started eating.

He chuckles. “You’re cute,” he says and you blush. Why do you keep blushing? “I actualy threw up too this morning.”

“Was it because of the cake? I’m sorry.” you look at him whilst having roasted chicken in your mouth.

“No, it’s okay, love.” He looked at you, smiling

It drove you absolutely insane when he called you love.

Breakfast ended and you both got to class, but not after getting a smirk from Katie. You had Charms with him, so you sat next to each other and to be quite honest, he couldn’t keep his hands to himself. He was either holding your hand and intertwining your fingers, holding your waist or having his arm around your shoulders. Plus, he kept kissing you on the cheek or forehead. All you wanted was a kiss on the lips. But it was class, you had to be concentrated to what the professor had to say.

After four hours of not keeping your hands to yourself (both of you), you went in the Gryffindor common room and sat on the couch.

“What time is it, Y/N?” Fred asked you.

“Five o'clock.” you rest your head in the crook of his neck. “Why?”

“Wanted to know how much time we have to cuddle,” he says softly. Oh, what you’d do to have this every single day.

“I’ve always wanted this,” you look at him in the eyes, although you couldn’t keep them there for much long, as they moved to his lips.

“Me too,” he says and leans in, suddenly kissing you. You gasp, taken by surprise, which only gives him perimission to slide his tongue in your mouth. You kiss him back and you put your arms around his neck, leaving no space between you two.

You pulled away breathlessly, looking into each other’s eyes with lust and passion.

“Can I ask you a question, babe?” he whispers.

“Of course.”

“Why me? I mean… George and I are identical, why didn’t you choose to fall for him?” he doesn’t break eye contact.

“You’re not identical. You’re similar, but not identical, Fred. You have similar personalities, but not identical. You’re not the same person. I guess I fell for you because… because you make me laugh more. You make me blush when you look at me and we both know you’re the good looking twin…” I joke. He laughs.

“I… love you,” he says hesitantly. You looked at him sadly. You were happy he felt the same… but it was fake. Everything was fake. It was just some stupid potion. Tomorrow, he won’t remember a damn thing and you were angry. You messed with your own feelings.

“I love you, too,” you said.

You both fell asleep on the couch, cuddled.

Next day

You woke up with two strong arms wrapped around you, holding you tight. You rubbed your eyes to make your vision become clear again and looked at the person next to you; Fred. Fred! You fell askeep cuddled! If he wakes up you’d have to explain why you two were hugging! You tried to take his arms off of you as gentle as possible and sneak back to your room.

“Y/N? Love, where are you going?” he said in a raspy voice, which you found extremely attractive. Love?

“What?” you whisper. No response. He fell asleep again. You kissed him on the lips shortly and smiled sadly. It was over. You went back to your room quickly, before he gets the chance to wake up again.

Fred and you slept more than you should have, which went to the question: why did neither of you woke up when students started walking around the common room? They saw both of you cuddled! And you were sure they’d tease you a lot about it… especially George.

You decided that there was no point in going to breakfast in the Great Hall anyway, so you skipped it and ate a chocolate bar you had from yesterday. You also didn’t want to face Fred, although he didn’t remember anything, you still did.

After half an hour or so, you decided you had to go to your first class (not that you had a choice), gathered your things and went to Charms. You entered the class just in time, the teacher was about to start the lesson, so you quickly got in your seat, ignoring Fred’s stare on youーor so you tried, because halfway through the class, you glanced for a second at him, but he was still watching you. Did he remember? Or was he just confused about why I was not present at breakfast? Did George tell him he found us cuddled on the couch?

Class ended, and so did your thoughts, until your name was called.

“Y/N!” Fred called after you. You took in a deep breath. Today he’s my friend. Just like any other day, you thought.

“Yes, Fred?”

“Why didn’t you come to breakfast, love? I was worried about you,” he said, a frown forming on his face. What? Love?

You looked at him confused, but shook your head immediately after. It’s just a nickname, it could be used on friends, as well. Very close friends. Best friends.

“I just didn’t feel well, that’s all,” you wave it off, trying to sound as convincing as possible. By the look on his face, you succeeded.

“Well, next time tell me. Don’t forget we can prank people by sitting in bed,” he winked at you, as he threw an arm around your shoulder. “I’ve gotta go, George said he has a big prank plan going on and wants some help, see you later, babe.” he kisses you on the corner of your mouth as he leaves, living you more confused than you were ever in your life. The looks on students’ faces around you weren’t helping, either.

Did you do something wrong with the potion? You were pretty sure you did everything correct, so why was he still treating you like his lover?

You decided that George could wait, so you ran after him, catching him entering in a classroom, probably meeting George. You entered after him. They were talking about something you weren’t interested in
right now.

“Fred, can we talk?” you ask, completely emotionless.

“Sure,” he says softly, as George gets the clue and leaves. “What is it, Y/N?” he smiles.

“Do you, um… do you remember anything from two days ago?”

“Do you mean when you gave me cake with Amortentia in it? Yes, I do, very vividly, actually,” he says, rather amused.

“W-what?” a blush spreads on your entire face. “You knew? I’m sorry, Fred, I just-” you stop yourself from speaking. “Wait, if you knew, why’d you let it affect you?”

“It didn’t,” he smiles.

“What do you mean it didn’t? You-you were being sweet and affectionate and-” you gesticulate with your hands, trying to explain. “W-was it all an act?” you say sadly, feeling tears in the corners of your eyes.

“Amortentia has no effect on someone who already feels something towards the person giving it, regardless of its ingredients,” he quotes the book.

“W-what?”

“When Katie told me, I was shocked at first. I didn’t know you felt the same as I do towards you, but then I came back to my senses. I had two options: after you gave me the cake, you could’ve saw the next day that I wasn’t acting any different and I could’ve told you then about my feelings, and two, I could’ve acted as your boyfriend for a day. The second one sounded more pleasing for me, frankly,” he explains, as he takes a step closer. “It never affected me. It wasn’t an act, either. I was what I wanted to be for a long timeーwith you. I told you that day that I threw up too, just like you did, from the potion. But you didn’t get the hint.” he chuckled. “You thought that today I wasn’t going to remember anything, but Merlin, the confused look on your face was priceless,” he laughs loudly, taking one more step towards you.

“B-but why did you let me give you the cake if you knew?” you ask, looking somehow confused at him, as he was very close to you, your faces almost touching.

“Where’s the fun in that?,” he smiles. You still didn’t smile, kept the worried expression on your face and he sighs. “I had liked you for so long, Y/N, I couldn’t not take the chance.”

He lifts up your chin with two fingers and looks at your lips.

“Was it real? The kiss we had in the common room last night?” you ask hesitantly.

“Everything was real, love,” he says as he leans in and presses his lips against yours softly and you respond almost instantly. He cups your cheek and caress it gently with his thimb.

“At least we don’t need any potion to be in love,” you chuckle as you two pull away.

“I guess not,” you said, smiling up at him.

Prompt: from @outside-the-government - SO JO. What about the Enterprise is docked at Yorktown for a while for routine maintenance or something, and in that time, Starfleet wants to do an outreach program to the youth on the base, so they’re invited to come aboard and tour through the departments, do a day of like… shadowing around someone in the division they’re interested in. Reader and Bones are in charge of impressionable young minds in the med bay.
Word Count: 2106
Author’s Note: Bones wanted nothing to do with those kids, and only wanted to get into the reader’s knickers. Redirecting him was nearly impossible.


“Are you out of your corn-fed mind?” Leonard’s voice exploded across the MedBay. You glanced up, knowing Captain Kirk had said or done something to set him off. “No. Absolutely not! It’s a violation of privacy to my patients, and these are medical professionals, not babysitters. Let the rugrats clutter up the bridge, I’m not having them in my Medbay!”

You perked up, intrigued. If your Leonard McCoy translation guide was working properly, it sounded like Kirk was trying to add MedBay to the Yorktown student’s open house on the Enterprise. Without much success. “They aren’t rugrats, Bones. They’re all nearly finished school, and are considering their options. They need exposure to medical personnel. How else will the Medical Corp continue to grow?” Kirk’s voice had that persuasive tone that Leonard rarely was able to deny.

“It’s a privacy violation, Jim, plain and -”

“Each student signs a confidentiality agreement, just like the staff do. They’ve done this on the Pasteur for years,” Kirk interrupted. “Without any problems.”

“If I didn’t have a choice, why did you even ask?” Leonard grumbled. Kirk clapped him on the shoulder and winked in your direction. You quickly looked back down at your charting, trying to look like you hadn’t been eavesdropping.

“I knew you’d see to reason, Bones,” Kirk laughed. “This is a good looking medical crew, you know. You’ll probably recruit quite a few if you just smile a little.” You looked back up and caught Captain Kirk watching you. He winked again and you felt the colour rise in your cheeks. “Get Y/L/N to help you plan it, that will pull in a few more.”

You threw a roll of cling at Kirk as he headed out of MedBay, leaving you with Leonard.

“We could kill him, you know, and no one would ever know,” Leonard grumbled. “He’s allergic to damn near everything.”

“Sweet of him to suggest we’ll recruit people based on our looks though,” you laughed. “You, I understand. Had I not already been med-track, I would have considered a switch after taking one look at you.”

Leonard raised an eyebrow, but you had the pleasure of watching him flush a little. You enjoyed working with McCoy. He was dry, witty, and probably the best doctor you’d ever had the pleasure of working under. The fact that he was also a little hesitant around women was endearing in the extreme, and you loved to tease him by flirting. He never quite knew how to take your comments, which gave you the rare joy of seeing him without an clever retort.

“You’re the goddamn poster child for the ‘fleet, Y/N,” he shot back. “You make those damn impractical uniforms look incredible.”

It was your turn to be speechless, but only for a moment. He wanted to play a game, he would get a game. “Not as incredible as your ass in those pants,” you retorted before you realized what was coming out of your mouth. You felt your face heat up and broke eye contact with him before he started laughing. “Shit, I will, uh, be over in the clean hold. Doing inventory. Do you think I could strangle myself if I wove cling into a rope?”

“You’re even prettier when you’re flustered,” he laughed as you retreated. Using the same practiced defense tactic you’d used with Kirk, you lobbed a roll of cling at him as you retreated.

anonymous asked:

What is the weirdest thing you find attractive in a person?

Ah, this is quite a tough question. Normally, when I am attracted to a particular someone (which is quite rare), I am only attracted to them which means, I see no other than them. So no matter what they do, I find it all attractive. Is that weird now?

Don’t Leave Me

AN: Everyone knew Suga was in love with her. He just didn’t want to say it, that was- until she was going to leave. 

Y/N was nearing the end of her time at BigHit as BTS’ personal assistant. She shared her job with a noona, and they split the band between them. Y/N was in charge of Yoongi, Namjoon and Jimin’s schedule whilst noona took care of the others. 

Y/N was feeling optimistic about leaving, she was going to go to college to study English Literature after taking a year out to figure what she really wanted to do. During that time, she was mostly running after Min Yoongi who couldn’t get his but out of bed to get to interviews, or seemed to pester her with the most obscure requests. She was his PA, but his requests were the most obscure things anyone could ever come up with. The other guys weren’t like that, and it seemed that he took fun in specifically getting her to do these things. Sometimes he could be the sweetest person ever to exist for her too, which often meant he was hot or cold. His mood changed like rapid seasons around her. 

He also seemed to like teasing her, sometimes it went over board and Y/N ended up on the verge of tears not too long ago.

Flashback

“Is he cute?” Noona PA asked, as Y/N let it out that she had a date tonight set up with a mutual friend of theirs during lunch. But now, whilst the guys were getting their hair and makeup done did noona PA decide to ask her about it out of the blue. 

Y/N blushed. 

“Ah, young love! What are you going to wear? Sexy, cute, preppy, vintag-” Noona PA asked, too loudly for Y/N’s liking. It got J-Hope’s attention. 

“Y/N whose the lucky guy?!” He semi asked-yelled. 

“I feel bad, this is all happening and you didn’t tell us.” J-Hope play pouted. 

“Yah, Y/N I think you should go for cute-sexy. If it were me, I would be captured and wanting to know more. “ Namjoon offered his thoughts on how she should dress for her date. He explained it with his hands, like she was some sort of concept. 

“Namjoon, If it was you, you’d spend most of the time going on about some theory that no one knows about.” Y/N teased back. 

“Aish. Whatever, just know that guys like cute-sexy.” He said.

Y/N rolled her eyes. 

“Who has a date? Y/N?” Suga asked, in a blunt voice that bluffed up. 

Y/N never knew how to react around him. He was sometimes hot and cold. Today, it seemed like cold. 

“Suga- hyung, what’s your opinion on what Y/N should wear on her date?” Jimin asked, smirking. 

Suga contemplated his answer. He wanted to say that she should wear that baseball top with the number 3 on it, paired with her black ripped skinny jeans and nike sneakers when he would pick her up to go and get pizza. 

“Nothing really makes a difference. Plain is plain.” He said nonchalantly. 

The rest of the guys rolled their eyes or silently huffed. They knew Suga had a thing going on for Y/N. He couldn’t express his feelings, or even try and convey it to her he had some feeling in general. 

J-Hope shot him a dirty look. He signalled that what he said was uncalled for. 

Y/N on the other hand, was on the verge of tears. She had to keep it together, since she was working. She tried her best, but felt her eyes about to pour out. Stripping it back by looking up, she willed herself to stay composed. Y/N didn’t know why his words sometimes cut through to her. 

“I think we should keep our personal lives, personal. Now, Namjoon- you have an interview for 4 today.” Y/N said diverting the topic. 

Suga was an asshole to her. Later that night, when Y/N was about to file their scripts from todays interview, she was surprised to see Suga standing in the doorway. 

“Can I help yo-” She was cut off by him. 

“Who is he?” 

“I’m sorry. I’m your PA. My life isn’t that interesting or necc-” She was cut off again.

“Answer my question. “ Yoongi said, taking a step towards her. 

“Why are you wearing that?” He asked, looking at the red ensemble she was in, paired with black stillettos. She looked enthralling. Yoongi wanted to be the only one to see her legs. Not whatever frat boy she’d be going to see tonight after work.

Scrap that, Yoongi thought to himself. There was no way in hell he was letting her out of his sight, dressed like that for someone else. 

“I need you to help me tonight.” Yoongi said, about to lower himself to a last resort.

“Please, Yoongi I really want to go out tonight.” Y/N half way begged. She couldn’t stand his how petty he was being. It was clear he was trying to mess up her night off. 

“Too bad. I call my monthly negotiation today.” Yoongi said, smirking. A monthly negotiation was when he could chose one day a month where his PA could be asked to stay with him to help beyond the hours they normally worked. 

Today was that day for Yoongi. 

“UGH. I hate you.”  

Even though Y/N didn’t end up on her date, Yoongi got her to order in pizza and made her sit down with him eating. To anyone else, it looked like they were having a date night in probably. Weirdly, she enjoyed herself even though she shouldn’t considering she was on the verge of tears not too long ago. Yoongi had this weird ability to make her feel like that, something was up; but Y/N didn’t want to think about it too much. It would complicate things. 

End of flash back 

“She looks like she’s seen herself in the mirror lately.” Think of the Devil and the devil shall appear, Y/N said to herself as none other than the guy who took over her nightmares said walking past her into his dressing room chair. 

The rest of the boys just huffed, annoyed at Yoongi’s blunt rudeness whenever he was around Y/N. Namjoon just wished he’d confess his feelings already, considering he spends so much time usually just talking about how ‘weird’ she is or asking about her to the other members. 

Y/N was now a bit more use to his random requests and bluntness, although he was polite to the other PA noona. 

She rolled her eyes and went back to the chart she was looking at to organise their schedules. 

“Yah, how am I going to live without Y/N when she goes to college?” Jimin huffed. 

“Why, someone finally let her in?” Suga asked, blunt as ever again. 

Jimin ignored him and Y/N usually just rolled her eyes, but no one doubted her intelligence.

“All five accepted me, including two USA ivy leagues.” The Ivy leagues were thanks to Namjoon’s helping when he could in preparation for the tests, but still- Yoongi just tried to make her seen incompetent. 

“So you don’t think BTS are good enough for you, is that why your’re leaving?” Yoongi asked, aggressively getting up from the chair he was about to sit on. 

“Nice to know you’ll miss me.” Y/N said without looking up from her sheet of schedules. 

“Get me the lyrics I left on the desk on the third floor from the other day.” Yoongi said, trying to seem unaffected. This was an example of the weird requests he had, which Y/N had no option but to do. She tried to be sassy about it at first, but now she was close to giving up. 

“Yes, your majesty.” She said under hear breath as she tried to find where an obscure bit of paper would now be in this giant building. 

Later that week 

“That’s the last of your things? I’m going to miss you.” Noona PA said, seeing Y/N pack the last of her things from her office into a big box. 

“I’ll be back this summer, we’ll go to Han River and watch fireworks. I promise.” Y/N said, knowing she’d be back from the US this summer once she got over all her exams. 

She couldn’t help but feel emotional saying goodbye. She had also said bye to the boys apart from Suga, who didn’t even bother looking at her. She bought all of them cupcakes that she made and was met with goodbye gifts from each of them. She said they’d go far, and it would be a matter of time before she’d wake up one morning in New York hearing BTS on Capital FM. 

Jungkook and J-Hope had let some tears loose, so she broke down saying her final goodbyes with them. They had become friends without her even realising, they all spoke about how it didn’t feel like Y/N was a member of staff to them, but like a sister.

“I’ll go check if your cars ready.” Noona PA said, excusing herself from the office. 

“Oh, Suga…” Y/N heard Noona PA say as she was about to leave. Noona PA looked back and forth between Y/N and Suga, deciding it was best to leave them. Noona PA wasn’t dumb, she knew Suga probably liked her, because he picked on her like a boy would pick on a girl he liked. 

“What is this?” Suga asked, stepping closer to Y/N and pointing at her two boxes. 

Y/N figured this was his weird way of saying good bye, so she got the spare cupcake she had made for him out. 

“Here. I know you don’t like me, but I just want you to know that I wish you the best. And-”

Y/N should have expected how he would cut her off by now.

“You’re not leaving.” He said, as-a-matter-of-fact like it was obvious. 

Y/N furrowed her eyebrows. 

“Okay…” She rolled her eyes, before it clicked he might pull another negotiation trick on her.

“Hey! No more negotiations, I’ve formally quit.” She warned.

“Quit?! How dare you! You can’t quit.” He yelled, which was rare. Suga’s voice going up octaves wasn’t something people usually saw or heard. Y/N nearly flinched. 

She was confused, his behaviour was ice cold at the moment.

“Aren’t BTS good enough for you? Is that why?” He took more steps towards her, closing in on her against a wall. 

“Why, Suga? Why do you care?” She asked, trying to keep composed. She wanted answers, this guy who seemed like he could spit on the ground she walked on was now looking at her like she was the focal point of his world. 

He laughed, which did something to Y/N she didn’t want to admit. 

“Aish. I can’t do this.” He said, pushing his head back and running his palm over his face. 

“Suga…” Y/N didn’t know what came over her, but she reached out to touch him. 

“Don’t go.” Suga said, in a low voice. 

“Why? You have to tell me why…” Y/N said in a quiet voice. There had to be a reason why he was acting like this.

“I like you”. He said, their bodies so close they could be one person. 

Y/N’s eyes widened. 

“What?!”  

“All this time, you treated me like absolute shit, you nearly made me, no in fact- made me cry on-” Classic Yoongi, cutting her off. This time, he took her into his arms and pressed a surprise kiss that Y/N warmed up to in seconds. 

Shut up. I was in love with you, you idiot”. Yoongi thought out aloud in the midst of his heated kiss. Y/N had gripped his shirt and was overcome with an unexpected need to be as close to him as possible. His gentle, calm, teasing kiss made her feel light headed. 

“I’m so confused by you Min Yoongi, we need to go through what’s going on in that head of yours.” Y/N said, forcing herself to break off. She had no clue why she kissed the guy who made her cry and feel like shit for months. In repressing how she thought Yoongi was attractive, suddenly she let herself feel what she felt towards him. 

Y/N felt like she had missed so much, like how he had a lop sided grin right now, like all that hatred that was bottled up had finally deflated. 

It was like looking at a new person, or the real Min Yoongi. 

He had said he was in love with her, which Y/N couldn’t get her head around. Yet, any fool who looked at his expression now could tell he looked like someone who was in love.

“From when you walked in to that room a year ago and introduced yourself, I thought you were cute. I watched you joke around with my hyungs, and saw you thoughtful you were. I saw how you helped people when you didn’t have to, but most of all- when you spoke to me. I realised that getting you riled up had become a past time of mine, but there was more, I-”

This time, Y/N cut Suga off for once. She could tell it wasn’t easy for him to pour his heart and soul out like that.

“It’s okay. I know.” She said, trying to make him feel better. 

Little did she know, that’s what people who are in love do. 

Soul Mate AU Where Anything The Person Draws On Themselves- Including Things Like Runes- With The Shadowhunters Characters

Clary wonders why she starts getting these black marks on her body when she gets to about ten or so. Jocelyn tries not to make a big deal about it, but is low-key super worried about what they mean. Clary colours them in sometimes, and doodles on her hands and arms a lot anyway, both out of habit and in the hopes of making her soul mate smile.

Jace isn’t sure why his extra runes never seem to come in, but after a while he stops thinking about it. He just wants to know who keeps colouring in his runes. He does appreciate the drawings, though.

Simon also wants to know why he keeps getting black marks, though his don’t start coming in until he’s about twelve. He wonders what they’re supposed to do, more than anything else.

Isabelle also wonders when her second set of runes are coming in. None of the Lightwood siblings get a full second set, actually, for obvious reasons. Clary never gets a complete first set of runes, Simon and Magnus can’t get runes- at least, they can’t get any of their own- and Max… well, we all know why Max never got all of his. What Isabelle does get are notes that sometimes appear on her palm, that she supposes are reminders that her soul mate leaves himself. Or herself, she’s not fussed either way.

Alec fully expected that he would get a second set of runes. Jace’s runes, to be specific. Needless to say, he was very disappointed when no extra runes started to appear. What did start to happen, however, was that after his rune ceremony, drawings appeared on his hands and arms. It was like his soul mate, now aware of his existence, was almost communicating with him. He’d wake up to see a little sun and the words Good morning on the back of his hand, and wonder who was drawing them. Sometimes he’d write little messages back, but neither of them ever swapped names or numbers or anything. The anonymity was part of the fun.

Magnus always thought there was something wrong with him, since he never got any markings, despite all the times he’s fallen in love. By the time the nineteenth century rolled around, he kind of accepted it. Aside from anything else, he was so low at that point that he might have been more concerned if he did have a soul mate- he wouldn’t want to burden them. For most of the Infernal Devices timeline, he rolled his eyes at Tessa’s inability to work out whether she had Will’s or Jem’s runes- really, she had a little of both, and nobody noticed. Which was strange; having two soul mates is quite rare- meanwhile not questioning why Camille refuses to draw on her arms, nor acknowledge any of the things he draws on his hands for her. It was a long time before he realised that they weren’t showing up on her at all. Cut to the twenty first century, and suddenly an Angelic Power rune appears on his arm. Now it’s Tessa’s turn to roll her eyes and explain that his soul mate does exist, but he or she is a Shadowhunter. Thus begins the anonymous exchange of doodles with his unknown soul mate.

Luke is the first to notice that he’s getting Jocelyn’s runes. However, he hides them, by any means necessary, from both Valentine and Jocelyn. He cares about the two of them too much to ruin their relationship by revealing himself as Jocelyn’s actual soul mate. Nowadays, though, he doesn’t bother hiding them. Even more so now that Jocelyn’s gone. He keeps her runes- though his are basically invisible now- as a way of keeping a part of her with him forever.

Lines of Love and War

Here is the first chapter of the Mulan inspired Nessian fic! It takes place in the ACOTAR realm, but with slight variations to fit the storyline. Nesta meets with the town’s matchmaker and discovers that her potential husband is tied in with a war that is about to unfold against Hybern. It is up to Nesta to join the ranks of fae and human alike to save not only her sister, but all of Prythian. 

Lines of Love and War : Chapter 1

The twittering of maids about the drawing room put Nesta in a state of disinterest that shifted to annoyance. One of the maids was brushing her hair in an attempt to control the golden brown locks. The regal and untamable air Nesta held about her made many compare her to a lioness with a personality to match as well.

A sharp tug of the brush made Nesta almost emit a snarl. Her inner wildcat itched to be free from this conventional ritual of preparing her for a visit to the town’s matchmaker.

The very thought of it made Nesta sick with worry. Not because she was anxious that she wouldn’t find a match. No, she feared that the matchmaker would pair her with one of the men in town.

More like savage brutes. Nesta thought as she glared at herself in the mirror.

Her makeup was done in an attempt to make her look more warm and welcoming. Nesta almost laughed at the maid’s efforts. No amount of makeup could ever take away her cold and serious demeanor. Her blue-grey eyes were a brewing storm beneath rose gold eye shadow and a thin line of kohl.

The makeup was better suited for sweet Elain. Of course all this primping and glamouring was all for the sake of her little sister. Nesta had already lost one sister. She couldn’t bear to lose Elain either. If Nesta could secure a marriage then Elain would be free to not be forced into one.

“It is time,” Mrs. Laurent said. The older woman stood waiting in the doorway with Elain looking on with a smile lighting her face.

“You look so beautiful Nesta!” Elain took in the efforts that the maids put forth.

Nesta stood from her chair. A queen rising from a throne. Her lavender gown trailed the floorboards with sheer folds that resembled smoke following her every step. Her hair was undone except for a few intricate braids that were pulled up to resemble a bun.

“There’s just one thing missing,” Elain trailed off and brought forth a gold bracelet inlaid with one small diamond. It was their mother’s bracelet. Elain delicately slipped the bracelet on her elder sister’s wrist.

It felt like a shackle to Nesta. The thin gold band mocked her in the gleaming morning light that streamed in the window. It seemed as though Nesta would be forever caged to duty and suffocation of the customs expected of her.

“Thank you Elain,” Nesta murmured for what else could she offer her sister. Her slight breathless tone not caused by awe of the gift, but by how tight her corset fitted her body. Still Elain’s actions were good in intent. Nesta could not fault her sister in that regard.

“Let’s not dally any longer,” Mrs. Laurent broke in rather abruptly. “We must head to town immediately. With any luck you will be matched with a husband by the end of the day.”

As they walked out the doorway Nesta heard one of the maids whisper that they had all better pray to the gods if they ever hoped that Nesta Archeron would tempt a husband.

Nesta held back a string of words. She was not one to take gossip and insults at face value. So long as the people she loved most truly understood her, then that was all that mattered. And Nesta could not care less for meddling maids.

Nesta, Elain and Mrs. Laurent boarded a carriage that took them to the matchmaker’s home. Nesta stepped out of the carriage with a ceremonial candle that must remain lit during the procession ladies conducted outside of the matchmaker’s home.

It was ridiculous in Nesta’s mind how a woman seeking a match would have to wait another month if her candle flickered out during the turn about the property. A gust of wind could blow out the flame as anyone walked the path leading to the doors of the home.

She was half tempted to blow out the candle herself, but after having done so three times already in the previous ceremonies was starting to bring shame to her family. If she couldn’t even handle keeping a tiny flame from going out how was she to be expected to take care of a husband and household? 

Townspeople already spread rumors about Nesta. She couldn’t care less, but then those rumors turned toward her family. That was the moment when Nesta decided to see this day through without a problem. Or at the very least try. Still she felt that she was going to need a lot more assistance to get through this day that would test her patience.

Gods hear my plea. Nesta thought silently. I ask only one thing. Please protect my family. Whether it’s at the cost of my happiness or my chance to be free.

She would give anything so long as her family was safe. No matter the price she would pay it.

And so it began. Nesta followed a line of girls making her the fifth and last to walk down the cobbled path toward their destination. The townspeople followed not far behind. Elain and Mrs. Laurent watched from within the crowd with their hopes set high for a good match for the eldest Archeron sister.

Elain could only hope that her sister found a suitable partner that would truly love Nesta.

The flame of Nesta’s candle danced as she treaded down the stones. It was amusing to watch. It seemingly begged for attention and its small warmth was the only comfort on Nesta’s walk. Her lips revealed the smallest of smiles at the small glowing fire.

Too soon the group arrived at the doors of the matchmaker. They kneeled on the small colorful rugs laid out for them so that their dresses would not get dirty. No sooner had they reached the ground the doors clamored opened revealing a woman holding a notebook and quill pen.

“Nesta Archeron,” The matchmaker called with her quill poised on paper.

Nesta rose and in a neutral tone announced her presence.

The matchmaker made a noise of disappointment and marked something in the notebook. “Speaking without permission…”

Annoyance flared in Nesta as she trudged up the steps to follow the matchmaker inside. The doors banged shut behind her.

“Have a seat,” the woman directed to a small table with two chairs and tea set.

Nesta sat down in front of the matchmaker and placed the still lit candle on the table. She found her gaze occasionally straying to the flame during the questions and tasks that the matchmaker asked her.

Pour the tea. Speak only when first spoken too. Use a demure tone of voice.

The matchmaker paused in making her notes after drinking a bit of tea Nesta had poured for her. From the disappointed look on the matchmaker’s face Nesta could only assume that her marks were not satisfactory.

“Let us presume with the readings,” the matchmaker unfurled Nesta’s birth chart with circles, numbers and symbols. Her fingers began skimming the paper. Pausing on certain marks and making notes to the side of the paper.

Nesta watched intently. She wondered how a suitable partner could be found with such charts. Apparently readers could determine many things based on these symbols and overlapping patterns that Nesta could not understand.

“Oh my…” the reader stopped and looked back and forth between three symbols.

“Am I to forever be a spinster,” Nesta joked lazily. “Or maybe it says I am to meet my end while walking down the steps to my home.”

The matchmaker looked up at Nesta. Panic seizing her eyes before blinking to contain her concern.

“Your chart mostly consists of lines that overlap so closely together that they almost form one joined path, which itself is quite rare. Those lines denote inner power of control and the ability to shroud your intentions, but they are such thick lines that it represents a vast amount of strength.”

Nesta didn’t say anything. Many knew she was closed off and was not a person who formed many friendships. Still…the woman’s claim was too close to the truth. The truth that she and her sisters descended from a mother who was fae. And that Nesta’s ability did involve a form of a mental shroud from those who would seek to read her thoughts or alter her perception of the mind.

The matchmaker paused. “Your family line meets with two lines…one of love and the other of war…and those two lines actually brush against each other.” She pointed at the pink and red lines that did indeed touch, but never crossed.

“They are not overlapping yet they still connect,” the matchmaker explained a bit perplexed. “This means that you will meet your husband due to some event related to your family from some sort of battle. Whether that be internal or external is impossible to decide.”

“So that means my husband is a soldier perhaps?” Nesta quirked a brow. There was talk of an impending war. The fae and human lands knew that Hybern was becoming a threat they could no longer dismiss. Maybe a regiment would come through town and Nesta would be proposed to by some poor soul who was going to war to face monsters that could only be dreamed up in nightmares.

“Your line of love and war directly connects your birth sign with a sign across the chart,” the matchmaker pointed out Nesta’s swirl shaped birth symbol linked with one resembled a sun with a dot in the middle. “That sign,” the matchmaker tapped the sun, “is your…significant other.”

On the table the candle’s flame flared brightly and swayed back and forth excitedly. Yet no wind stirred in the home.

Nesta and the matchmaker watched the flame in awe and shock. Nesta personally felt spell bounded by the display. Too soon the flame calmed, but the smell of earth, sweat and spice filled the air. Distantly Nesta thought she heard a clang of metal along with a deep laugh.

“Strange,” muttered the matchmaker toward the flame. “Although this would make sense considering your potential husband is a fire sign.”

“Great,” Nesta said sarcastically. “That means he’s more than likely loud, rambunctious and out of control.”

The matchmaker shrugged slightly as if it wasn’t her problem before turning back to the chart. “There is another line though that grabs my attention.”

“You say it as if it means something terrible,” Nesta pointed out the nervous halting words the matchmaker spoke.

“That is because I see that your line of death crosses the ones of war and love,” the matchmaker admitted cautiously. “And it is tethered between the start of your war and love lines leading through the section of ascendance and between two birth symbols.”

“Which means?” Nesta implored.

“Death can mean many things beside the literal term, but either way your path to it starts the same time that you will begin the path of love and war. With it running into the ascendance that means sacrifice on your part. And the catalyst of your death is strangely pointing directly in the middle between two signs. So your death could be the cause of two people or –”

The matchmaker sucked in a breath. As if a fright overtook her.

Nesta sat at the edge of her seat. The hairs on her neck rose. Foreboding filled the air.

“Or what?” Nesta breathed.

The matchmaker looked up at Nesta. Fear clear in her eyes.

“Or something inhuman. Something that is best to be avoided.” The matchmaker stood up suddenly. “I believe you should leave at once. Your session is over.”

“Can you not tell me more?” Nesta questioned. Something about her chart set her on edge. She wasn’t one to believe in such things, but her feelings did not sit well at the moment after the latest reveal.

“No,” the matchmaker began pushing Nesta to the door. “And do not ask me again.”

“But –” Nesta tried to question the woman more, but the doors opened and the matchmaker all but tossed her out.

“Do not return!” The matchmaker wildly exclaimed. Loud enough that the townspeople heard and gasped in shock at the sight before them. The doors closed and Nesta was standing there perplexed beyond anything until the whispering of the townspeople stirred her to move.

She walked pass them all with her head held high. Elain weaved through the crowd and clutched her elbow.

“Nesta?” Elain worriedly looked up at her eldest sister. Confused at the matchmaker’s apparent distressed actions.

Mrs. Laurent stepped in front of them before Nesta could say anything. “To the carriage. Now.” Her face was unhappy and disappointed. It was obvious that a match had not been made for Nesta to be married.

Nesta didn’t argue and neither did Elain. Soon they boarded their carriage back to the manor. It’s green roof and gardens planted by Elain gave Nesta a sense of ease. But she knew something was coming. A storm brewed violently and Nesta knew she had to act.

When they arrived home Nesta went to her room to remove the makeup and hairpins. No sooner had she pulled out the last pin a maid knocked on her door and entered at Nesta’s reply to enter.

“Miss there is a…fae man outside requesting an audience with the head of household,” the maid wrung her hands nervously.

Since Nesta’s father was away on trade business in a neighboring country that left Nesta in charge.

“I will be down momentarily,” Nesta replied still seated on the vanity seat and removing the last piece of jewelry from her body. The maid left to go back downstairs to notify the fae of Nesta’s soon arrival.

It was a matter of importance that Nesta rid the fae from their property. Enough fae folk had ruined the Archerons. She did not intend for any to linger and cause more trouble for her family.

Just thinking about the time when Feyre was stolen away by the High Lord of Spring made Nesta clench her fists into her dress. It had been months since Nesta had last seen Feyre. She was a changed being. Literally.

But so too was Nesta and Elain after all these years. The three Archeron sisters gifted with fae powers.

Nesta glided down the stairs and toward the front entrance. Outside there was indeed a thin looking fae male. He wore glasses and dressed more like a scholar compared to the two fae guards that accompanied him.

“I presume you are the eldest Archeron?” The male asked.

Nesta stood firm just outside the doorway. She closed the door so that the conversation was private from the ears of the prying staff.

“I am,” Nesta replied. “What business do you have with us?”

The male pulled out a parchment. “We seek soldiers for the upcoming war with Hybern. It was agreed between both the human queens and the high lords and ladies of the fae lands that each family must have one member volunteer for the armies.”

“But my father is away on business and my sister and I are the only ones here,” Nesta supplied. “Do you expect families to offer soldiers when no member is suited for battle? What of the families with younger children? Would you take their fathers from them for this war?”

“If we do not have soldiers then those children will have much more to worry about then being fatherless,” the male admitted. He handed her the rolled up parchment. “You or your sister must join the ranks. If not then the paper will enact a curse upon your household and randomly select one of you to be chosen.”

“You wouldn’t dare,” Nesta growled clenching the paper tight. “I will die before letting Elain anywhere near a battlefield.”

“Then I suggest you make your decision by nightfall,” the male pointed toward the paper. “Use your blood and thumbprint as a signature on the contract. Once that is completed you will be magically transported to one of Prythian’s forces where you will be trained.”

“Which army will I be selected for?” Nesta knew Prythian had seven courts. Each had an army of it’s own.

“The magic will take you to the one that you are destined for,” the male eerily replied.

Nesta stared the male down. Hating the fae even more for jeopardizing Elain. They had already taken Feyre from them. She wasn’t about to lose another sister.

“If there is nothing else for you to say then our business is done,” Nesta concluded stonily. A clear sign the fae were to leave at once.

The three males didn’t say farewell as they walked back down the road from which they came. Nesta imagined that once they hit the tree line they would whisk away with magic.

Upon returning inside Nesta met Elain as she walked in from the dining room.

“Who was at the door?” Elain asked with a tray of tea in hand.

The war contract felt heavy in Nesta’s hand. Discreetly she stuffed the paper into the folds of her dress making it impossible for Elain to see.

“Men who had lost their way and needed directions,” Nesta lied. “They have left now so we need not worry about them.”

“Oh.” Elain cocked her head to the side. “Well I suppose we could have tea together in the study perhaps? I’m sure you want to finish the book you’re reading right now. And maybe we can talk about what happened in the matchmaker’s home?”

Nesta would tell Elain that her potential husband was a fire sign, but the other details would have to be left out. She wouldn’t worry Elain about the death and war lines that were crossed.

Instead Nesta put on a rare smile solely reserved for her sister. One in which she removed her indifferent mask and revealed a more gentler side that few had ever seen.

“I wish you could have seen the matchmaker’s face when she saw my love line,” Nesta said. “Or the horrid fact that it connects with someone with a fire sign.”

Elain giggled. “Only someone of fire could handle you Nesta. It will be exciting to finally meet him! Especially after you broke off the courtship with Thomas.”

Nesta’s throat lodged at the mention of Thomas. That monster had left horrible memories. The sound of her dress ripping. His fingers gripping her wrist so tightly that bruises marked her skin. Luckily she escaped before it went any further, but the fear of his name still lingered.

The sisters entered the study with Elain softly humming a tune that was secretly known to help flowers blossom. The roses on the small table proved that point when their color turned a more vibrant healthy shade of red.

Perhaps one day Elain could live in a place where she didn’t need to hide her abilities. A haven where she could flourish like the plants she helped thrive. Nesta too wondered if there would be a place for her as well. But her powers brought destruction. Not life like her sister.

Even Feyre had shown promise in her abilities before being taken by the High Lord of Spring. But it was too late to change the past. And now Nesta focused on ensuring a safer future for Elain.

Hours later the Archeron estate was silent in the middle of the night. A thunderstorm could be heard rumbling in the distance. Nesta sat alone in her room in front of the unlit fireplace using the light of the moon to read the papers that would bind her as a soldier in the war against Hybern.

She read over each line carefully. Scrutinizing the words until she could practically recite them back from memorization. Then the noises of the night quieted. Dead silence filled the air and Nesta looked up from the paper.

“Hello human,” a voice spoke out from the room’s shadows. Nesta startled. She rose from her chair and snatched a letter opener from the table.

“No need for that,” the voice said. It sounded old and young, beautiful and grotesque. “Your meager weapon would be no match against my kind.”

My kind.

“What are you,” Nesta questioned in a ragged breath wondering what sort of monster lurked in her room.

“You’re not asking the right questions.” Click, click, click. Its fingernails tapped against something in the dark.

“What are you,” Nesta demanded again.

Quiet. Then a scratchy release of breath that reminded Nesta of an annoyed sigh.

“I am a creature of no Court and older than the bones of this world.”

Nesta’s heart pounded in her chest. “Then you’re a fae from Prythian?”

A rasping laugh from the darkness sent Nesta’s skin crawling.

“My kind are called Suriel, but I had expected that the eldest Archeron would ask better inquiries. It’s no fun if you don’t play.”

“You think this is a game,” Nesta took a step forward brandishing the letter opener. “I have read about your species. Do not think you can toy with me and give riddles for answers.”

“So you are smart for a human,” the Suriel said. “But then again you’re not entirely human.”

Nesta froze. She stared deep into the obscured corner of the room where the Suriel waited. Slowly the shadows of the room stretched out. But those were not shadows. Dark tattered robes moved into the moonlight. A tall, thin veiled figure appeared with spindly arms sticking out from the sleeves.

The urge to run flooded Nesta. Flee and warn Elain to escape from this frightening faerie. Run and keep running and never look back.

“Now,” a lipless mouth spoke around too-long teeth. “Ask me the question.” Milky white eyes of death and sickness watched Nesta deliberate the statement she just heard.

“Why are you here?” Nesta asked quietly.

“To assist you on your journey,” the Suriel replied. “For you have potential.”

“You speak about the war.” It was not a question. What other journey would Nesta dare to take with the threat of her sister being taken in her place if she didn’t? “And how do you propose that a wraith should be beneficial?”

The Suriel placed a long yellowed nail to the corner of its mouth. It tsked in disappointment. “Have we not established I am a Suriel? It would seem obvious what I can offer in times where you are confused and in need of answers.”

“So you’ll just come at my beck and call?” Nesta snorted in disbelief. “I very much doubt that and I don’t intend to have a debt hanging over my shoulder for your assistance.”

“My presence will come forth when I choose so and a form of payment will be made upon my answers given to your questions,” the Suriel agreed. “Most of the time I prefer coats, but lately I’ve been desiring socks.”

Nesta considered the words. Having the Suriel as an ally would be an incredible asset. “Fine. But I leave tonight for war.”

The Suriel gave one nod with a sharp smile. “But of course. I already knew that.”

Without a second thought Nesta tossed one of her crocheted scarves at the creature. “That is your payment for tonight. Next time I expect clear-cut answers. No toying around with words. And no damned answers with hidden meanings.”

“Oh, but we shouldn’t make promises that can’t be kept,” the Suriel sprung across the floor in a flash and darted out the open window. It was all but a dark blur in the moonlight as it escaped to the Wall bordering human and fae lands.

Nesta heaved a sigh of relief and closed the window. Her gaze returned to the parchment on her writing desk. It would be midnight soon. Her time to be spirited away to one of the Courts was drawing nearer.

With her remaining time left Nesta wrote a letter. One that explained to Elain that she was going to be away to help the fae and humans fight against Prythian. She asked Elain not to follow her, but instead look to safety in case the war did not end in their favor. She apologized to her sister. Wishing things were more peaceful and that their home was whole and full of love that had been taken from them years ago.

A shuddering choked sob caught in Nesta’s throat as she signed her name along with her hope to see Elain in the future again. Softly Nesta crept out of her room and down the hall to Elain’s room where she placed the note and their mother’s bracelet on the bedside table.

As the final hour of the day was about to draw to a close, Nesta used her sharpened letter opener to make a small cut on her thumb. The blood welled on the skin before enough had been drawn out.  Steadily Nesta brought her thumb down on the paper. Immediately she felt magic thrumming after she had sealed her life to battle.

Her own magic swelled from within the deep trenches she kept it buried. It coursed through her veins in a matter of seconds before suddenly the ground disappeared beneath her. Nesta tumbled in darkness. Panic rushing in her stomach as she fell into nothingness.

Then her body collided on something hard and cold. Nesta sucked in air with a gasp as she stared up into darkness. No. There was something bright shining above her in a sea of darkness.

Stars.

Nesta was alive looking at a night sky filled with stars. She sat up and rubbed her back which took the brunt of her landing.

“Damn fae magic,” Nesta grumbled thinking it was quite a ridiculous way to transport people to and fro. She couldn’t imagine how the humans dealt with such an abrupt method of travel.

She turned her body around at the sound of deep laughter and male voices in the near distance. A camp of sorts was set-up a little over 100 yards from her. Large fires pits illuminated the area filled with crude tents that were constructed a safe distance around the burning flames. Along the tree line a dozen buildings of gray mountain stone stood tall as smoke puffed from the chimneys.

Nesta shivered in her attire. She had worn a long nightdress to bed with boots for her journey, but this cold seeped deep into her bones. Wind howled like wolves across the bare rock and mud that Nesta walked on. Her feet carried her closer to the camp. Each step closing the distance between her and a fate that danced with war and love.

And Nesta’s gait did not falter in the face of what was to come.

So there are 12 different bookmarks to choose from. I’m going to sell them next week on a convention and I don’t know if I will have any left after that, so if you want one, pls send me an e-mail to kampfkewob@gmail.com, so I can put them aside beforehand. But I will limit them to 2 per picture per person. I don’t have _that_ many afterall. 

Shipping wouldn’t be a problem, I will ship from Germany to wherever you are. The shipping costs depend on in which country you reside, but I think it would be a max of about 4€ for international shipping. I will ship them around the end of March or early April when I’m home again.

anonymous asked:

I don't know if you've done it before but do you happen to know any myths about asexuals ?

Wow, it’s such an interesting question!

The thing is, myths have usually a simple narration. They don’t delve into the psychological details. There are a lot of myths with celibate heroes. Are they asexual? I can’t remember seeing a character when we can be sure. But it’s very easy to see.

So, I will try and tell a few myth characters who are celibate and could very well be asexual.

In Greek Myth:

  • Hestia, goddess of the hearth, is very much celibate. No romance is known for her, no sexual encounter (which is quite rare for Greek Gods). She’s known for being the sister of some of the most important gods, and for her cult
  • There are two other Greek goddesses known for refusing men’s company and being eternally virgins: Artemis and Athena. Of course, the concept of “virginity” being what it is, some people would argue they were actually lesbians. 
  • For Athena, she could have been in love with Pallas, a young nymph she accidentally killed. But friendship, or romantic asexual love works too.
  • Artemis is well-known for having a lot of nymph friends and expecting total chastity from them. She also seems rather sex-repulsed. Here again, it doesn’t preclude romantic asexual lesbian relationship.
  • @lifeisyetfair noticed that Hippolytus, Theseus’s son, refused relationships with women and was devout to Artemis. So it’s not only a goddess thing. :-)

It gets more complicated with religions - and the associated myths - which value celibacy a lot. A lots of mythical saints are totally celibate, but when nothing is told about potential temptations, it doesn’t say whether they were actually asexual or just very devoted.

  • Here is an article (in French, I don’t know if you read French) about some saints who married but did not consummate their marriage (with the wife consenting, or even being very much in favor)
  • And of course there is Jesus. Not everyone will agree about it, but I mean, it’s a really plausible interpretation.
  • The Buddhism has similar positivity towards celibacy, and a lot of celibate heroes and divinities. One of my favorite is Kuan-Yin, goddess of compassion.

Another type of myth where I read asexuality and aromanticism very easily is the one of the girl who doesn’t want to marry. She’s expected to, but refuses, and it’s not a story about her changing her mind.

  • One of my favorites is the origin story of the Iuvet people (in French again, sorry). A girl is abandoned by her father because she refuses to marry. She’s expected to die, but she survives, thinking she’s a bad girl. She travels, and manages to create humans, and a village without ever bearing children, only with magic. At the end, she takes revenge on her father, and the story insists that what she created was actually good.
  • Sedna, the Inuit goddess of the sea, was a human woman once, and one of these girl who didn’t want to marry. In some stories, she’s seduced by a spirit, but in most of them, it’s a forced marriage by her father. Anyway, she escapes him, but as he tries to stop her she falls into the cold ocean, and her father cuts her hands. She becomes a lone and powerful goddess. (Some legends give her a girlfriend, but I think they’re modern ones)
  • In some versions of the myth, Mulan is one of those girls and actually refuses the emperor’s son (and not for another man).

But I hope I’m wrong. Does someone know myths that more explicitly express asexuality?

SoC headcanon

(seriously, I have so many headcanons for this book, it’s kind of ridiculous!)

Anyway, I was thinking about what the Six of Crows characters would be like when they were drunk and this is what I came up with:

-Nina starts making really rude jokes, she turns everything into an innuendo and it really pisses of Kaz (Nina, when I said I was going to pick his locks, I literally meant I was going to pick the locks to his house, NOT anything else!)

-Her and Jesper are really loud, they stagger around together singing songs and knocking things over and just generally making a scene

-It makes everyone anxious because they’re both Grisha but when they’re drunk they have very little control over their own actions

-No ones too worried about what Jesper will do, he’s a Fabrikator with no training, the worst he’ll do is accidently destroy a handrail and fall into a canal, or disintegrate a lamppost and it fall on his head

-But Ninas a different story, she’s a powerful heartrender, if she dosent have control of her actions, she could accidently kill someone, so Matthias always keeps a special eye on her (Jesper volunteered to but they all knew that would end badly)

-Jesper also becomes even more clingy than normal when he’s drunk, he compliments everyone (even Matthias) constantly

-He also becomes super protective of Wylan (one time he picked a fight with a tree because he thought it was flirting with Wylan)

-It takes very little to get Wylan drunk. Half a glass of beer and he’s a bright red giggly mess (which Jesper thinks is the most adorable thing ever)

- He finds everything cute when he’s drunk (Jesper, come look at this, its the sweetest thing ever. (Wylan, that’s a rat, and its dead)

-Surprisingly, Matthias also gets weirdly giggly when he’s drunk, he laughs at everything (though it takes a lot to get the alcohol to have any affect on him) (for some reason he has an abnormally high alcohol tolerance, even higher than Kaz, and nobody knows why)

- The first time everyone saw Matthias get drunk, they expected him to be able to control Nina’s drunken rudeness, instead he encouraged her (though he strongly denies it when he’s sober)

-Inej gets drunk the least out of the six of them. If this were a modern au, she would be the designated driver. She’s the one who gets them all sorted and makes sure they all get back to the Slat safely after they’ve been drinking. She’s the only one who can keep Jesper from doing anything too stupid when he’s drunk (not even Wylan can do that, mostly because the stupid things Jesper does when he’s drunk are too show off to Wylan) She clears up the vomit and stops Kaz picking too many fights

- However, on the rare occasion when Inej does get a bit drunk, she starts asking really deep philosophical questions and will believe anything anyone says in response (“Nina, what’s the meaning of life?” “I don’t know, cake?” “Really??! I always thought it was whether or not you made a difference when you were alive and if the people around you would miss you when you died, to think, I’ve been wrong this whole time…”)

- When Kaz gets drunk (which is quite rarely) he gets an absolutely wicked sense of humour

- But his mood can change incredibly quickly and one moment he will be laughing with everyone else and the next he will be standing over the cowering body of someone whose annoyed him with his gloves covered in blood

-The only person who can calm him down is Inej (of course)

- Kaz also gets strangely protective of the rest of the six when he’s drunk, like, he will tease them all himself, but if anyone else dares to, well, they’ll end up being the person whose cowering on the floor at his feet

This is all I’ve got for this headcanon for now, though if I think of anything else, I’ll add it! As always, feel free to add anything to this if you want!

DenNor & SuFin Omegaverse Headcanon

Okay, so, don’t get me wrong but I crave for some real deal A/B/O verse with good dose of angst and drama but also with healthy amount of fluff and smut. Not your typical porn without plot, more like plot with porn. So hear me out:

  • This perfect society is structured and lead by Alphas, carried (or co-lead) by Betas but what nobody wants to acknowledge in this utopian society is that Omegas are in fact subjects of slavery and ownership
  • When one discovers that he or she is Omega (which is quite rare but happens whatsoever) the individual is taken away from their family and friends by the government’s organization
  • The Omega then loses everything (freedom, possessions and identity) and is then sold to the highest bidder to be used for reproduction but mostly it ends as a sex toy and salve in a rich household
  • Since the number of Omegas is quite small compared to Betas and Alphas (and since they are oppressed by the leading two) Omegas can’t fight for their freedom and rights and others don’t seem to find their enslavement as a problem
  • In fact, Alphas and Betas don’t even see it and represent it as slavery but as means of reproduction for their race
  • Mathias, Berwald and Lukas are childhood friends razed in wealthy families
  • They all grow up believing and fantasizing they will become Alphas
  • Mathias is the first of the trio to discover his nature and quickly after him Berwald turns out to be Alpha, too
  • Lukas then becomes a bit worried since he still doesn’t know his true nature but everyone is ensuring him that he’s just a late bloomer and that there’s no need to worry, the worst it can happen to him now is that he turns out to be Beta
  • However, everything comes crashing down when Lukas goes into heat one day while casually having fun with Berwald and Mathias
  • All three of them are terrified and don’t know what’s happening, the two Alphas want to help Lukas but his smell is now making them go crazy with want and need
  • When they figure out that Lukas just got his first heat and that he’s in fact Omega, they are all shocked; Mathias wants to help Lukas but Berwald is torn between helping them and informing the government of the new Omega (don’t blame him, he’s just doing what society wants him to do!)
  • Mathias and Berwald fight because of it and Berwald leaves them with a bloody nose and broken glasses
  • Mathias then hides Lukas where he thinks nobody will find him and gives everyone excuses that Lukas and him are doing a sleepover so nobody would be suspicious of anything
  • Although Mathias doesn’t know what to do with Lukas, he does his best to help his friend: he researches everything he can find to know more about Omegas while trying not to bring any suspicion on him; he brings Lukas food, he brings him fresh blankets and pillows every day, he tries to calm him down, meanwhile he’s extremely turned on by squirming and helpless Lukas
  • Mathias barely holds himself from jumping on Lukas and is grateful when his heat is over since he doesn’t want to force his best friend into anything both of them might regret later; in his research he finds out that Omega’s first time will cement the bond between the Omega and partner and will last for life
  • Since there were no government people coming and inspecting anything while Lukas was in his heat, they figured Berwald didn’t report them
  • Both Lukas and Mathias know how dangerous is what they’re doing and they are both afraid to be found out so Mathias decides to run away together with Lukas so nobody will find them and take Lukas away
  • With news of Lukas and Mathias disappearing, Berwald is left alone, with no real friends
  • Berwald only thinks about Lukas and how he betrayed both him and Mathias, still he’s keeping everything a secret from everyone; he is blaming himself for Lukas and Mathias running away
  • His parents are heartbroken that their son is so sad and alone so they decide to buy him an Omega to keep him company; little did they know that was the worst thing they could have done
  • The little blond Omega is everything a perfect Omega should be: obedient, submissive, quiet and silent and eager to please; it all makes Bewrald go crazy since he can only see his best friend in the little Omega his parents bought him
  • Berwald hates how perfect this Omega is, or to put it better, how perfectly trained he is; it makes him uneasy to imagine Lukas being taken away from them and being trained and broken to become this “perfect”
  • After Berwald hears his Omega crying at night, he can’t take it anymore and he decides to go against the society and rules and do whatever he needs to do to help him (since he still feels guilty for not helping Lukas when he needed him the most)
  • He starts getting closer to the Omega, he learns his true name, about his past life and the reason why he cries every night
  • Berwald tells him everything about Lukas and Mathias and Tino, Berwald learns his real name, is terrified and in shock
  • Tino then tells Brewald everything what happens after he was taken by the government; how mercilessly they trained him to become an obedient slave and how horrible they punished everyone who tried to rebel; Tino warns Berwald that if Mathias and Lukas were ever to be found, they will surely be executed
  • When Berwald learns the truth about the Omega’s trainings and slavery and what might happen to Lukas and Mathias he decides to find them and help them alongside with Tino

I imagine both couples on the run, trying to save each other while saving themselves and running away from the people who want to separate them… All the while they are deeply falling for one another and realizing how wrong the society is treating Omegas. Do Tino and Berwald reach Lukas and Mathias in time? Do they catch and take any of them away? Do they show everyone the truth about Omegas being slaves and end it once and for all or do they escape and find peace somewhere where nobody will ever find them? The rest is up to you! Hope you liked it!
