who even knows what genre they are

“So, where’s your LGBT fiction?”

It’s no big secret that a large portion of the LGBT fiction market is online. Many books aren’t even available in print, which I know frustrates some readers (and authors!) who would like to find books in bookstores, libraries, etc. And heck, some people just like paperbacks.

But they aren’t in bookstores. Not in significant numbers, anyway. Even as larger publishers branch out into LGBT, they’re sticking to ebooks.

After talking to publishers, agents, authors, and booksellers over the years, I’ve come to understand one of the primary reasons for this is, quite simply, that queer lit doesn’t sell in bookstores.

With that in mind, I went on a mission this week. I visited five bookstores around Seattle and Portland - Powell’s, Half Price Books, and Barnes & Noble - and I asked the same question: “Where would I find the LGBT fiction?”

Y’all.

Y’ALL.

This is the LGBT Fiction and Non-Fiction section at a Barnes & Noble. The entire section.

But you know what’s extra aggravating?

This is where I found it:

I mean, great. Glad it’s near LGBT & Gender Identity (Though it’s literally the bottom shelf. The top three are Native American and African American non-fiction, which apparently are part of Cultural Studies but don’t warrant a sign despite occupying ¾ of the space…? IDK.)

Signage weirdness notwithstanding, look what section I’m in. I mean, if you’re looking for LGBT Fiction, you’d expect to look…in the….fiction section, right?

No. It’s in the non-fiction section. This is the view of the fiction section from the LGBT section:

Those are Graphic Novels, followed by SFF, followed by Romance. So if you’re in the mood for Gay Romance, you’re not even in the right ZIP code if you start perusing the romance section.

And if I wander over to the fiction section and look toward the LGBT section…

That far wall? The shelf with the LGBT books is perpendicular to that.

See what I’m getting at? There are literally only three ways someone will find the LGBT fiction section at Barnes & Noble:

1. Ask. Which is fabulous for people who are closeted, kids who aren’t comfortable asking, and people who don’t even know the genre exists.

2. Stumble across it. Which you’re totally going to do if you’re looking for a novel because you’d absolutely wander out of the fiction section to find one.

3. Already know where it is.

Can’t imagine why LGBT fiction doesn’t sell.

At Powell’s, the situation wasn’t any better. Powell’s is enormous. It’s multi-level with color-coded rooms because it’s just….huge. I made a valiant attempt to find the LGBT Fiction on my own, but after a full hour of browsing, including scouring all the rooms containing fiction, I finally had to go ask.

There was a reason I couldn’t find it - it wasn’t in any of the rooms dominated by fiction.

It was in the room with all the history books, tucked back behind Military History. Because God knows that’s where I go looking when I want some LGBT fiction.

To their credit, Powell’s had an impressively large section, and it was decorated with a gigantic rainbow sign….but what good does that do anyone if they can’t find the section?

Finally, Half Price Books. Behold, the entire Gay & Lesbian Fiction section:

And yep, that’s the non-fiction section. The Gender Studies and Anthropology section. All the non-queer fiction was downstairs. Not even on the same floor.

So…you know…I think I might’ve figured out why LGBT Fiction “doesn’t sell very well in print,” and what a shock….it’s not because people don’t want to read it.

[Article] Inside the mind of Bang Si-hyuk, the man behind BTS :

Big Hit Entertainment CEO on the group’s appeal to global audiences and why the boys won’t be recording in English anytime soon

The most important name in K-pop these days is undoubtedly BTS. The boy group, which debuted in 2013, has performed across the globe, most recently at the American Music Awards just last month. The global spotlight has fallen on this boy band that many fans around the world have fallen in love with.

Helping the group shine behind the scenes is Bang Si-hyuk, founder and CEO of Big Hit Entertainment, home to BTS. He recently traveled to the United States with the group to accompany them as they made media appearances in an effort to become more familiar to American audiences. On Sunday, he met with media at a press conference before the group’s concert at Gocheok Sky Dome in Guro District, western Seoul.

“Since we started to take on the new theme of ‘Love Yourself’ in September, we want to talk more about universal and essential stories,” said Bang. “I think BTS was able to show some dynamic stories thanks to this theme and we want [fans] to continue watching the group’s journey as it unfolds in the coming days.”

While he delivered hopeful remarks, he refrained from saying that BTS has reached their peak.

“It is too early to talk about success, and it is difficult to share any secret to success as of now, but it felt like I was part of Team Korea wearing a Taegeukgi [Korea’s national flag] embroidered on my chest,” said Bang, sharing how he felt during his 10 days spent in the United States with the group.

“We confirmed that BTS has fans from around the globe at the Billboard Music Awards in the first half of this year, and at the American Music Awards, which places its value on popularity, we were able to see that Korean music can be competitive in the home of pop music.”

Bang said that the group has grown as its members continue to communicate with fans their age with music about their life stories, including painful moments. He even made an album series called “The Most Beautiful Moment in Life” after member Suga once said that he doesn’t want to be a grown-up.

“If they continue to go forward without losing their dreams, they can continue to be boys and that’s the basis of the stories of BTS,” he said.

Although Bang is the force that leads BTS, he doesn’t like to be called the “father” of the group.

“I don’t think any one can create artists,” said Bang. “The idea [of me being the father of BTS] makes the group an object, not the subject, and that’s against my philosophy. Also, I’m not married.”

Fans have contributed to making BTS expand its reach in the global community. Many fans watch the music videos online and then create their own recordings of themselves reacting to the group’s official videos. They voluntarily promoted not only the official videos but also their own creations, and that snowballed and created even more fans.

Even if fans want to hear more lyrics, BTS won’t be releasing songs in order to appeal to fans from particular cultural backgrounds or recording songs in English. Although the songs are written in Korean, many fans at American Music Awards sang along the group’s song “DNA.” Taking their global fandom into account, the group’s agency does take time to make BTS music more approachable, for example, by using Korean words that are easy to say.

“We will try to keep K-pop’s distinct characteristics that were set in the mid-1990s with visually aesthetic charms and powerful performances,” Bang said, adding that K-pop music can be familiar to those who don’t even know what K-pop music is, as K-pop is made up of elements of genres like hip-hop - something that most of the world knows well.

“If we teach English to singers and sign a contract with American companies to release albums, then that is no longer part of K-pop. It is like Asian singers making a debut onto the American market. That is not a sustainable model.”

Bang seems to understand what songs can go big in the market. The founder and CEO, worked as a chief producer for JYP Entertainment before starting his own company. He produced boy band g.o.d.’s “Sky Blue Balloon,” singer Rain’s “Bad Boy,” as well as singer Baek Ji-young’s “Like Being Hit by A Bullet” and “My Ear’s Candy” and more.

The producer whose interests range from animated movies to information technology takes inspiration from many elements of culture to create music.

“There is nothing new under the sun, [so I draw inspiration from things created throughout history],” said Bang. “So we put effort into researching cultural contents and look for ways to apply that into our music.”

Based on what BTS has been a part of in the United States, including being invited to American Music Awards, and elsewhere in the world, Bang hopes that K-pop continues to stay competitive and welcomed around the globe.

“I hope, with what BTS has achieved in the United States, I don’t miss the [chance] to create a well-made industrial model,” he said. “I hope the case people have seen with BTS is not just a one-time thing and more people to take it as an example. I want many to take that model and get inspiration or more ideas so that more K-pop singers can make their way to overseas markets.”

enjoying dark themes in media ≠ supporting dark themes in real life

Some thoughts I’ve been mulling over for a while...

SJM Haters: “No diversity!” *Shoving aside canonically black High Lords Tarquin and the bisexual Helion, Thesan, Nesryn, all of the Southern Continent, etc*

SJM Haters: “Everyone is white!” *Punching the non-white Illyrian races, not to mention about 90% of the Summer Court*

SJM Haters: “They’re all heterosexual!” *Throws Thesan, Mor, Aedion, the Blackbeak Matron, Thea and Kaya off of a cliff* (Actually, feel free to throw the Matron off a cliff lmao)

SJM Haters: “Rowan is abusive” *blatantly ignores the fact that Rowan was literally tied to a queen who forced him to do terrible things, and he still found it in himself to love Aelin unconditionally*

SJM Haters: “She doesn’t tackle any important issues!” *Stepping on Rhysand’s history of sexual abuse, not to mention Lysandra’s history of sexual abuse, oh and also Aedion, whose nickname was literally ‘Adarlan’s Whore,’ and the slave trade, and the treatment of ‘lesser faeries’ in comparison to ‘High Fae.’*

I’m not trying to say that the ACOTAR/TOG books aren’t without their flaws. Every book, every movie, every song, every piece of artwork that has ever been created has a flaw in some way. Often, there are multiple flaws. It is okay to acknowledge these flaws. It is okay to even criticize them. What is not okay is discrediting the immense amount of work that SJM puts into these books. She released two (2) fantasy novels longer than 200,000 words in a single year. I don’t pretend to know everything that goes on at Bloomsbury Publishing, but I honestly believe that she did that for her fans. She started writing Throne of Glass when she was 16; she got it published 11 years later. Books take time; lots of it. Ask George RR Martin, who also tackles the heavy genre of fantasy, but he’s been working on Winds of Winter for six years. Do you think SJM would have wanted to go over these books for another year or combed through them just one more time before she published them? Yeah, probably. Every author, writer, fanfiction writer, artist, or whomever, wants just a bit more time to add those final details, to keep chipping away (because let me tell you, even when it’s done, we don’t feel like it’s done). But you know what else? She’s probably damn proud of them, too. As well she should be. The amount of times I find myself laughing with these characters and crying and screeching, it says enough.

1D Rebranding and Eventual Reunion: GP vs. Fandom Perception

So I’m seeing a lot of tension an unrest over the way that the members of 1D, Harry in particular, are distancing themselves from the band as they embark upon their solo careers (ie, Harry, or whatever intern runs Harry’s sm scrubbing his twitter clean of 1D mentions). I know people are anxious about this, and I understand that anxiety, but I want to offer a different perspective: I think this could be a good thing, not just for their solo ventures, but for 1D as a whole. Hear me out on this one, sorry it’s long winded.

So. One of the things I notice a lot, especially from people who have been immersed in the fandom for three, four, even FIVE years, is that they don’t necessarily have the most comprehensive grasp of how the boys and the band are perceived outside of the fandom, and rightfully so, as they have not existed outside it in a long time. This makes it really difficult for some fans to envision a rebrand for 1D that would appeal to the GP.

As many of you know, I’m SUPER new to the fandom. May marks my fandom anniversary, and even than it took me a good three months or so to actually start listening to and enjoying their music, so I don’t actually consider myself to have been a full blown 1D fan until August of 2016. I came in post hiatus, and was VERY much a member of the general public in regards to my perceptions and understanding of 1D as a band AND as a brand before that. I cannot speak for the entire GP, as there are a variety of views and experiences, but this what it was like for me. (Not sure how much demographics matter, but I’m a 26 year old American born and raised in LA who was at college in Massachusetts during 2010-2013 when 1D was at the height of their popularity. I’m a huge fan of pop music, so I was aware of them and didn’t have an initial bias for their genre).

Before I got into 1D, and even AFTER I became initially interested in them via the Larrie fandom, I didn’t know SHIT. I also didn’t know a single 1D fan to give me liminal information about them, as I was in college when they formed and became popular and the majority of my peers were neither in the target audience, nor old enough to have kids who were. I thought 1D were an overrated, untalented, manufactured boyband created for children. I had NO IDEA they wrote their own music, that they had wonderful (queer, subversive) lyrics, that their later work spanned multiple genres, that they were fantastic song writers, that they were talented and diverse vocalists, or even that they were wonderful, charitable, observably passionate and COMPASSIONATE human beings. In America they were marketed as 5 Justin Beibers, and I knew Beiber was a jerk and I didn’t care for his music, so there was essentially no reason for me to look into 1D. As a member of the GP, I saw them as a kiddie band of asshole white boys, and there was essentially no visible marketing or PR efforts made to overturn this image. Harry was a womanizer, Zayn was an arrogant asshole, and they were the only two I ever saw in the tabloids or knew by name. That was the extent of the PR I witnessed for them as someone who enjoyed pop music and saw headlines, but wasn’t looking closer.

If I hadn’t gotten into them, I wouldn’t have known ANYTHING beyond that, and if they had come back from the hiatus as 1D before having solo careers and rebrands, I would HAVE CONTINUED TO SEE THEM AS A KIDDIE BAND OF ASSHOLE WHITE BOYS. And mind you, I’m someone who likes pop music, listens to pop music, and enjoys 90s boybands from my childhood. I’m not the type who’d be adverse to their music just based on elitism or principle. Basically, I’m trying to say as a former and recent member of the GP, that 1D does not just suffer from the USUAL amount of delegitimization and dismissal most pop music or music created for and by women suffers from in regards to the GP: it’s more deep-seated, more hostile. It’s very cool to hate 1D in the general public, EVEN if you exist in circles which don’t delegitimize pop music as a whole. I think it comes from the rise of hipster culture, where some pop music is considered appropriate to like ironically, (Justin Beiber and T Swift were examples of this when I was in college but I think it differs geographically), some is appropriate to like nostalgically (90s pop largely) and some is appropriate to like contrarily (i.e., everyone hates Nikki Menaj but she’s actually really cool!!!111! I’m enlightened for thinking so!!) and some is appropriate to like politically (Beyonce or Gaga, who are vocal about oppressed groups they support or belong to). 1D, in my experience, is not appropriate to like in any way, according to hipster culture. They’re much more popular to hate. Hipster sensibilities effect the way young people as a whole perceive popular culture, and it marks artists which are considered “interesting” enough to look into. 1D is just not one of these artists in my experience. 

Now, it feels so foreign to look back on how I used to feel about them knowing what I know now, and how purely and simply and wholly I love them. This fandom is so intense and devoted, but it’s also a bubble and I think it’s really easy to lose sight of how much 1D is disrespected by the GP, and how hard they’re going to have to work to come back as a band that’s taken seriously. I DO think they’re coming back and I DO think that’s one of their ultimate goals, but I think they want to come back not as the 1D they once were, but as a band that’s NOT cool to hate. I think they wan to build their new model and brand for longevity and accessibility, much like the Beatles (another band who was largely considered a manufactured pop act for teenage girls before they successfully rebranded, which people forget).

I think some people in this fandom want the validation and recognition they deserve for being fans of 1D and recognizing their musical worth even in spite of their horrible marketing and reputation, and I totally understand that. Like, it would be wonderful if the boys could be like, “1D ISN’T bad and we’ve always been talented and anyone who’s listened to us for long enough knows that! You’re not stupid for liking 1D! 1D, as we were and as we are, are real music!” This is part of where that desire for Harry to not distance himself from the former 1D image as he forges his solo brand on SM comes from. People want, (and deserve!) that validation, we don’t want to feel dismissed as 1D is dismissed. 

But it’s just not realistic. It’s something that only exists within the context of the fandom, and as wild and huge and passionate and powerful as we are, WE ARE NOT THE GENERAL PUBLIC. 1D want to come back, in my opinion, as the legitimized and respected rock group THEY DESERVE TO BE SEEN AS, and unfortunately their fandom and talent alone aren’t enough to do that. Music is the business and they NEED the approval or at least respect of the GP in order to succeed in that business venture.

This is why Harry (and to a certain extent, the rest of the boys) are rebranding in such away that distances themselves from that image. They NEED to do it, FOR THEMSELVES AND THEIR OWN CAREERS BUT ALSO FOR ANY FUTURE AND LASTING CAREER FOR 1D. Harry ESPECIALLY. He’s the most recognizable face and name from the band and I know from the fandom perspective it seems all positive, like he’s talked up by the GP and respected, but the truth is that I thought he was an ENORMOUS jerk before learning otherwise and I know a lot the GP does too. He was the most aggressively marketed to the GP, and the brand they marketed is easy to hate. The other boys need to make themselves more relevant to the GP and elevate their names in general,  but Harry needs to REWRITE HIS ENTIRE NARRATIVE and overturn the horrible reputation he has as a fuckboy serial womanizer who dresses like a shitty hipster (oh my god it kills me to say this, Harry I love you but this is what I thought he was, this was how he was sold to me). He NEEDS to rebrand as the Iconic Timeless Rockstar, not just to earn respect as a solo artist, but to CHANGE THE FACE OF 1D, SINCE HE’S BEEN MARKETED AND PUSHED AS SUCH FOR THE DURATION OF THEIR CAREER.

I think that every member of 1D needs to have a successful solo venture in order to rebrand as individuals, and ultimately the to alter the shitty GP perception of the band as a whole. When I think back to what it was like to be in the GP, one of the ONLY realistic things which would have successfully worked to pique my interest in a 1D reunion would have been if my initial biases and opinions of them had been ALREADY ALTERED by solo rebrands. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have looked twice. They need to have collaboration with other artists outside the 1D brand, they need to be viewed as legitimate artists in their own right.

I’m a big Justin Timberlake fan for example, and I dig NSYNC for nostalgia’s sake (Backstreet Boys for lyfe tho if we’re talking 90s), but I would have been ten times more interested in an NSYNC reunion if every member of that band had a solo career as successful as Justin’s. ESPECIALLY if those solo careers existed in different genres and styles of music they excelled at, ESPECIALLY if they routinely collaborated with artists I already like and respect like Justin regularly does.

But the thing is, the members of NSYNC WEREN’T ALL AS TALENTED AS JUSTIN. There could not have been five Justins. BUT EVERY MEMBER OF ONE DIRECTION IS!  They can do it, they can smash a solo career in a different genre, gain the respect and appeal of that fanbase, highlight their strengths, and change the GPs perception of the BAND when they inevitably reform.

But first, they have to shed the terrible brand they were saddled with during 1D’s early career. What I’m arguing is that it’s GOOD AND ULTIMATELY BENEFICIAL for each of them to distance themselves from that brand. Harry deleting the references to the band on his SM is, at least in the long term, a move towards the eventual longevity and success of 1D’s new brand. I know it sucks for us here in the fandom, and it feels in validating and confusing and scary, but we have to understand that they already HAVE our support, they have it no matter what they do or when they come back. What they DON’T HAVE is the support, respect, or even INTEREST of the GP, and they need that to come back. 1D was not originally built or marketed to last, but I believe when they return, they COULD BE. In short, they’re the greatest thing we’ve ever seen already,  BUT THEY COULD BE THE GREATEST THING THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN. They just have to take the necessary steps to get there, and this might be one of them.

thank you @cuethetommo for prompting me to write this! 

Dean Winchester’s eclectic taste in music, as shown in his (non-classic rock/heavy metal) FBI aliases

My whole thought process here started today with the famous Aaron scene, and the alias Dean uses while he shows his badge to his “gay thing”.

Yes, Marc Bolan was an openly bisexual celebrity (referenced here by BEN EDLUND, similar to 10x22, where ANDREW DABB references Freddy Mercury - another bisexual man - as one of the other aliases Dean chooses for himself). 

This is a telling reference in itself in the context of this scene, but as a huge T. Rex/Marc Bolan fan myself, this scene got me super excited also besides that. Like, super SUPER excited. Why, you ask?

BECAUSE IT MAKES TEXTUAL THE FACT THAT DEAN IS A GLAM ROCK FAN. Like, classic glam rock. Silk shirts, high heels, glitter eye-shadow glam-rock-fan. A one step away from David Bowie’s “Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars” glam-rock-fan. 

He is a fan of THIS:

He is enough of a fan to take Marc Bolan’s name as his alias while he usually chooses aliases based on classic hard rock musician’s/heavy metal band members that he likes/identifies with.

OR DOES HE?

Out of curiosity (and procrastination, because of course I should be doing something else right now) I checked the list of the music aliases Dean uses over the years (I assume that these aliases are Dean’s ideas since he is the brother more interested in music, after all.) As a result, I spent a great evening with a whole spectrum of music genres, based on Dean Winchester’s amazing and broad AF music taste.

It’s true that most of the aliases Dean chooses are heavy metal and classic rock bands (Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, ZZ Top, Kiss, Ted Nudgent, Styx, Rush, Warrant, Poison, Guns and Roses…)(I don’t blame him, these are great bands).

MOST, BUT NOT ALL OF THEM.

There are exclusively six writers who gave Dean a much more eclectic taste in music during the last seven seasons:

  • Andrew Dabb
  • Robert Berens
  • Ben Edlund
  • Robbie Thompson
  • and a writing duo Eric Charmelo & Nicole Snyder (season 10/11)

So, let’s look at what genres/bands broadens Dean’s iPod album collection, shall we?

1) 80′S HAIR METAL BANDS (GLAM METAL)

Yes, Dean was sneering at Vince Vincente and his spiked codpiece (and a rainbow wig that I am completely sure Dean imagined, because even google can’t find me one band who used that as a prop), but that was all Performing!Dean talking, obviously. How do we know? Because as far as real-life parallels to the fictional band Ladyheart go, this is what Dean hates so much:

Yes, Dean is completely disgusted by leather pants, huge wigs and studded codpieces, here visualized by Mötley Crüe. Dean said so IN TEXT.

(I am pretty sure Ladyheart is supposed to be Mötley Crüe since their next album was to be named “Theatre of Mercy” - mirroring Mötley Crüe’s album “Theatre of Pain”. Also, “Rock Never Dies” was written by ROBERT BERENS, who named another one of his episodes “Girls, Girls, Girls” - after a Mötley Crüe  song and album.)

Originally posted by perilsofrocknrolldecadence

And yet, in episode 8.02. “What’s up, Tiger Mommy?” (written by ANDREW DABB), Dean introduces himself and Sam as Agents Neil and Sixx, two members of MÖTLEY CRÜE. Which means Dean is a Mötley Crüe fan, and he doesn’t seem to mind huge wigs and studded codpieces that much in their case. (Bam, LAWYERED!)

The name LADYHEART (called into existence by my above mentioned personal god Bobo Berens) reminds me of the British band LADYTRON (playing synth pop/new wave/electronic combo), and named after the super famous ROXY MUSIC synth pop/glam rock song.

Originally posted by letthewiresrock

So, yeah, Dean is a fan of studded codpieces, big wigs and hair metal. He is also a fan of a long list of different music genres (real Dean behind the cut):

2) 90′S GRUNGE

In episode 10x13 “Halt and Catch Fire” (written by ERIC CHARMELO & NICOLE SNYDER), Sam and Dean use aliases “Grohl and Cobain”, as in DAVE GROHL and KURT COBAIN from NIRVANA.

3) BRITISH 1970′S/1980′S PUNK ROCK

In episode 11x13 “Love Hurts” (also written by ERIC CHARMELO & NICOLE SNYDER) Dean uses alias “agent Weller”, as in PAUL WELLER from the classic British punk rock band THE JAM.

Originally posted by rockinnreelin

4) POWER POP

In episode 10x19 “The Werther Project” (written by ROBERT BERENS) Dean pretends to be a Neighbourhood Watch member by the name of Dwight Twilley.

DWIGHT TWILLEY is a power pop singer from the 1980s.

5) POP ROCK/ART POP/BLUES ROCK (with female vocals)

In episode 9x14 “Captives” (written by ROBERT BERENS), Sam and Dean take aliases of “agents Nicks and McVie”.

STEVIE NICKS and CHRISTINE MCVIE are members of the legendary soft rock/art pop/blues band FLEETWOOD MAC. THEY ARE ALSO BOTH FEMALES!!!

Originally posted by witchstevie

6) POST PUNK/INDIE ROCK (with female vocals)

In episode 10x14 “The Executioner’s Song” (written again by ROBERT BERENS) Sam and Dean take names “Moore and Ranaldo”.

THURSTON MOORE and LEE RANALDO are members of the legendary indie rock band SONIC YOUTH, with famous vocals of KIM GORDON.

7) PROGRESSIVE POP ROCK/SYNTH POP of 1970s/1980s

In episode 8x17 “Goodbye Stranger” (written by the one and only ROBBIE THOMPSON), Sam and Dean use names “agents Tandy and Lynne”.

RICHARD TANDY and JEFF LYNDE are members of ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA, a band that combines pop-rock, synth pop, electronic music and elements of disco.

In episode 8x08, “Hunteri Heroici” (written by ANDREW DABB), Team Free Will pose as agents “Nash, Crosby, and Stills”.

DAVID CROSBY, STEPHEN STILLS, GRAHAM NASH (and occasionally NEIL YOUNG) were a folk-rock supergroup started in 1968.

10) COUNTRY ROCK/SOFT ROCK

In episode 11x04 “Baby” (written by ROBBIE THOMPSON), Dean uses name “agent Walsh” as in JOE WALSH from THE EAGLES, a soft rock band of “Hotel California” fame.

Dean’s taste in music, reflected here in the names of musicians he chooses as his personas, alongside his most favourite rockstars, shows how broad Dean is in his tastes - Dean practically is a fan of anything that sounds good to him, regardless of genre (as shown with his liking for Taylor Swift and Broadway musicals, for example). It’s a shame that this wonderful music taste is still hidden in the subtext, and all I can do is hope that our new Dean will be allowed to play some of his favourite bands in his car next season, especially since both Dabb and Berens seem to be the keepers of Dean’s super eclectic, infinite playlist. Please Dabb, make it happen!

  • what they say: I'm fine
  • what they mean: Why is there so little Vampire Chronicles fan activity or content? Where is the fanbase? I understand that it's older but the appeal is still massive. This is something that you can like for years and years and not get over. Why is it there aren't hoards of new fans every year? What can you want more than beautiful bisexual vampires? I mean Anne Rice practically invented the modern vampire genre. There's dozens of shows and book series that owe their creative careers to her. She is one of the bestselling writers of all time!!! The fact that there isn't a bigger active fanbase especially since Prince Lestat's release kind of blows my mind. I mean there was even a blockbuster motion picture with an allstar cast. How are there not more new young fans? How do we get more? Like I know so many people who have seen and enjoyed the movie but where is the huge cult following behind the film and the books?

“I want to curl your hair. Like in the Lucky One teasers, it was all curled and cute and blonde, let me do it.” You pouted at him and ran your fingers through his dark hair. “It’d look so cute with dark hair.” Jongin pulled you closer to him until you sat on his lap, your hands immediately moving to his hair. You ran your fingers through the soft locks and he smiled at you.

“Will curling my hair make you happy?” He asked you. You nodded, withdrawing your fingers from his hair.

Hiphop Unit || Through Their Eyes

TITLE || Through Their Eyes

GENRE || Fluff

WHO? || Seventeen’s Hiphop Unit

SUMMARY || Here’s what you don’t see.

A/N || I don’t know. There’s no context whatsoever. Just thought it’d be cute haha.

S T A R T

  • SEUNGCHEOL

He’d know that it was you everytime he felt someone press against his back as his vision was blocked by a pair of small hands. You were up to your childish antics once again, and even though he knew it was you every single time, he’d just chuckle and play along albeit your terrible voice impersonations. At times like this, Seungcheol would simply enjoy the way your body leaned into him slightly, your breath tickling the nape of his neck. The sweet smell of your shampoo will hit his nose, and your face would just automatically appear in his head. When you finally release him, the boy will turn around at the speed of light and hold you captive, loving the way you felt in his arms. He missed you. Taking his time, he will stare at you, as if trying to burn yet another image of you into his brain. And then at time intervals of a few seconds, he will kiss you lightly, on your forehead, your eyes, your nose, your cheeks, your lips… because he really did miss you.

  • WONWOO

Holding you in his arms as he relishes in the comfortable silence that exists between the two of you, Wonwoo would let his dark eyes trail over your features, with you laying on his chest. The both of you would be tired, but in hopes of enjoying the presence of each other — even for just a bit more — you’d both try, and struggle, to keep your eyes from closing. You’d probably fail anyway, but Wonwoo wouldn’t mind. He thought you looked adorable trying to stay awake. As he gently strokes your head, he hums lowly so as to not disturb you. He would take notice of the way light gets caught in your messy hair, weaving in and out of the strands that smelt faintly of your favourite conditioner. And then, a smile will grace his lips as he brushes your hair out of your face, revealing the face that he’d come to love so much. His dark orbs will observe the slight flutter of your eyelashes, the occasional parting of your lips as you breathed and also the way your hand grabbed onto his shirt like a child. In the quiet serenity with you by his side, he’d be at peace with himself.

  • MINGYU

Staring at you as you leaned against the kitchen counter, Mingyu would observe the mischievous glint dancing across your eyes — the way they always did before you pulled him down for a kiss. He’d catch his lower lip between his teeth in anticipation, because no matter how many times you had kissed him, he’d still get butterflies around you. He felt like he was still in the puppy love phase, no matter how much time has passed. And just as he had thought, you’d pull down the tall boy for a cheeky peck on the lips, but he would cage you between his arms, longing for more than just a peck. Dinner can wait when what was in front of him looked far more appetising than anything he could cook up. His breath will hitch when you laugh at how childish he was being, because everytime you laughed, Mingyu swore he could hear the wedding bells chime. He’d notice the way your eyes crinkled in the corners, and how despite your significantly shorter height, you’d still attempt to tiptoe in hopes of getting closer to him, even just for a little bit. So to give you what you wished for, he’d close the distance between you two once again.

  • VERNON

The most beautiful person he has ever laid eyes on. He’d watch you intently as you focused on trying to get his part of the rap down, because you had made some snarky remark about being equally as good as he was in rapping. Vernon wouldn’t even concentrate on your rap, because he’d be too distracted by the way your nose scrunched up when you made a mistake, or the way your brows drew together everytime you were determined to do something. He thought you looked adorable when you were trying your hardest. His heart would swell when you look up at him through your lashes, falling in love with you all over again each time you smiled at him. He’d suddenly blurt out that you were beautiful, and his cheeks would tint a rosy pink before he kisses you gently to stop you from rapping. He couldn’t help it. The way you turned red and hesitate before kissing him back shyly would only make him love you more. He’d be aware of every little movement that you make — wrapping your arms around his neck, shifting slightly to a more comfortable position, and jumping slightly each time he pulled you closer. How did he ever get so lucky?

Unusual Taste Manga

Recently, I’ve been into “not-so-much-of-a-typical-manga” manga. I know, I know, is that even a real thing you might ask. These manga does categorize into common genres (fantasy, romance, horror, etc.) but I just thought they are much more than just a comedy read or a shoujo type, you know. Of course, there are other trillion of manga that is “different” to you (depends on one’s personal preferences), so just considered as a good recommendation. With this, I will also be hunting for more, so wait for the update! Enjoy!  

Gleipnir

Not so much of a human boy (What you would call a boy who can transform into a beast and have an incredible sense of smell?).  As if he though he can hide his true identity forever, he met a girl. Well, you know the rest. His new destiny started from there.

Ran to Haiiro no Sekai

Weird family. That’s all I can say. And we looking through the youngest sister everyday misadventure. A good and relax yet weirdly read for a calm afternoon. 


Aku no Hana

Typical high school shoujo. Or is it? Well, maybe there is some twist and turn in this plot. The main character whom to me is some obsessive over his crush, the blackmail attempts, and the strange third girl. Oh, drama, drama. 

Mahou Tsukai no Yome  

Can of like those type of manga where the “slave” will become the bride of rich man through an auction or contest. But this time, her “owner” is not some typical master you can found. (Since I also think this genre is pretty rare, so I will probably do another list of recommendation with manga like this)

External image
 

Somali to Mori no Kami-sama  

Ok, so this is probably my favorite one out of all. The main character is so adorable, I just wanna pinch her little face >.<!! Anyway, it’s about a world full of spirits and strange creatures. One day, a golem met this human girl. And this is a story about their adventures. Such a cute manga~

External image

Kujira no Kora wa Sajou ni Utau  

The plot sort of confused me at first. But after sticking through it, I find it’s really fascinating. The story focused on Chakuro, the main, and his friends travel across islands to islands to find a human trace. Until they spotted a girl…

External image

Sakamoto Desu ga?  

Ok, I might said earlier that I’ve already pick a favorite. But honestly, Sakamoto Desu ga? had always been one of my top read before I made this list so… (I just wanna give some room of love for the others uk T.T) Anyway, as for the plot, this is basically a life of the “isn’t just cool” but the “coolest!” Sakamoto who just can’t stop attracting everyone’s attention. Everything he do is just simply perfect. Is he even a human? Bonus fact, this manga had already have an anime so PLZ watch it. You never know what you missing out.

So that’s all my current list for now. Just bunch of random recommended read but really worthy of your time and interest. Stay tune for more! <3

Only You (M)

Pairing: Jimin x Reader
Genre: ¼ cup of angst, ¼ cup of fluff, and a whole lot of smut
Summary: After another woman kisses Jimin, he tries to convince you that he’s faithful with make-up sex

A/N: I’m not too fond of angst and I’m terrible at writing it but I couldn’t get this idea out of my head so I just went for it. Since I’m a sucker for happy endings I added fluff to balance it out.

—-

You didn’t know how, if it even happened, and you didn’t know who, but you did know what. You sat there unmoving as your best friend told you what she saw. You and her had gone jogging and were passing through the park when you saw Jimin with another girl. This didn’t bother you at first because Jimin was allowed to have other female friends, just like you were allowed to have other guy friends. You aren’t the jealous type so you didn’t question what they were doing or why he was alone with her in the park. Your friend saw them at about the same time that you did and you kept running, not giving it a second thought, but her sudden gasp made you swiftly whirl your head around to see what she saw. A tree was blocking your view, but all you could see was a blushing Jimin walking away from the girl and wiping his mouth. You asked her why she gasped and all she could do was shake her head and urge you to keep running.

Now you were at her house, sitting in a dinning chair listening to her describe the scene that just played out.

“I’m not making any assumptions here, I’m just telling you what I saw ok?”

You nodded, preparing yourself for the entire story this time instead of her broad statement of “they kissed”.

“Well, they were walking. And probably talking. And then she grabbed his hands and they kissed. On the lips. It wasn’t a long kiss but it definitely happened.” This she was sure of.

“And then he just casually walked away?” You asked her, wanting to know if there were any missing pieces between that and what you saw.

She nodded solemnly. You closed your eyes. There was nothing in particular running through your head, just a mix of emotions that honestly just made you feel empty and dizzy.

“I almost cried when I saw it and he’s not even {my boyfriend!! I couldn’t say anything to you because I was still in shock and I didn’t want you to go over there and have to fight someone. But just so you know, if you did need to fight someone, I would be right there beside you.” This is why you loved her. She would never lie to you and she always had your back. She would despise someone she’s never even met if you said you didn’t like them and she would defend you in every argument, no matter how wrong or right you were. She never hid anything from you and she seemed to know what was best in most situations, very wise for her age. These are the reasons she was your best friend and exactly why you never questioned what she saw. She was your eyes when you weren’t looking, or when you refused to look and you believed her as though you had seen it with your own two eyes.

You sat in silence and ran a hand through your sweaty hair. Your brain was still trying to figure out what emotions you were feeling so at the moment you were still in shock. You didn’t dare ask her to repeat the story, you knew what happened and you honestly didn’t want to hear it again. Standing up, you turned toward her and took a deep breath. The words were in your head, but nothing was coming out so she spoke first.

“Hey, don’t be mad at him yet. I know I just told you what I saw but there is always another side to the story. Ask him what happened, but wait to see if he tells you on his own first. Then you’ll know if he’s honest or not. I’m still rooting for you guys. I still think you guys are going to get married someday and have a house full of my adorable little godchildren, so don’t give up on him yet. Don’t make any assumptions until you’ve heard the full story. Remember, everyone is innocent until proven guilty.”

You stared blankly at her, her words breaking through the numbness and catching your heart with its teeth. Your eyes filled with tears, threatening to spill over and she reached to hug you. You blinked the tears away, not letting yourself get upset yet and you said a small thank you to her and headed out of the door.

You came home to an empty house, a bit colder than you remembered. You looked at the pictures that you and Jimin have hung up on the walls from various dates and when you two travelled for vacations. You tried your hardest to have faith in that Jimin, the one in the pictures, who would never hurt you or be dishonest or unfaithful to you. The first thing your brain told you was that you needed a shower. Not only because you were sticky and stinky from your run, but because the shower was a place to clear your head and wash away some of the stress and worry of the day. A shower with Jimin was always the best way to de-stress, but really you just wanted to be alone.

Your head hurt from thinking about today, so you turned on your speaker and played some music, hoping it would take your mind off things. It helped in a way, but there was still an aching in your heart that told you that you should be worried. But you ignored it. After your shower, while you were getting dressed, you heard the front door open and your heartbeat immediately sped up. Jimin didn’t need to ask if you were home, he saw your car, so he just walked in silently and you could hear his footsteps as he roamed the house. The steamy bathroom seemed to get hotter and you wiped away the sweat that was forming on your forehead, desperately wanting to leave the stuffy room, but dreading seeing Jimin. You weren’t ready. But then you realized that you would never be ready, this was as ready as you were going to get, so building up your courage you opened the door.

He wasn’t in the bedroom, which was a relief, but you could hear him in the kitchen opening and closing the refrigerator door. After walking around your room doing random things to stall, you decided that it was best to get it over with. You stepped out of your bedroom and made your way to the stairs quietly, not making a sound as you dreaded each step. When you reached the bottom, you paused. Innocent until proven guilty. You didn’t want to be angry yet, so you replayed the pep talk your best friend had given you in your head and gathered the courage to go into the kitchen.

You didn’t mean to sneak up on Jimin, but your silence made it seem like you were trying to creep up on him and he jumped when you opened the refrigerator, alerting him of your presence. He gulped and avoided making eye contact with you.

“Hey.” You managed to get out, not really in the mood for proper greetings.

“Hi.” Silence. “I, um, I have something to tell you.” Jimin has never been shy around you. Even when he confessed to you, his best friend at the time, he seemed to hold a subtle confidence that showed in his words. He was always respectful and polite in the way he spoke, but he was also bold and straightforward when addressing something. The way he was acting right now unnerved you. You felt like you were going to cry, not because of the pitiable guilt present on your boyfriend’s face, but because of the fact that this look was confirmation of all that happened today. You swallowed the lump that was growing in your throat.

“What?” Was all you could manage to get out. You couldn’t find the strength to form a real sentence, so you kept your answers short.

“I- Today I went to the park with Gaeul and she-” He struggled with himself. “She kissed me.” Straight to the point, just like you expected. Jimin couldn’t bring himself to look you in the eyes, but you were staring through him. All of the blood in your body felt like it rushed to your face and suddenly you felt burning hot, burning tears stinging the corners of your eyes. There was a long silence between you two, Jimin waiting for you to move, to say something, to {do anything}, as you processed his words and tried to remember how to speak.

She kissed you?” You asked, the first thing to pop into your head. He nodded. “Did you kiss back?” You said this softer, somewhat hoping that he wouldn’t hear you or just wouldn’t answer because, truthfully, you didn’t want to know the answer.

“No, of course not!” His head shot up and for the first time, your eyes met. He could see the slight pink of your eyes and the redness of your face, knowing that you were holding back your emotions and it only made him feel worse.

You were surprised to see that he seemed slightly offended by your question, as if you could put it past him even in this situation, but you had to ask. Once again, his eyes dropped to the floor.

“What happened after that?” You dared to push farther, needing to know everything before you made your mind up. He raised his eyes but never looked all the way up at you, focusing on something on the counter.

“We were walking and she stopped and said something, but I didn’t hear her. When I turned to ask her what she said, she stopped walking, grabbed my hands and kissed me. I pushed her off me immediately and I asked what she was doing. She had this innocent look on her face and tried to act like I did something wrong. Her excuse was that she ‘always wanted to do that’ even though she knows I’m dating you.” He cringed at the memory of the kiss. His face crinkling ever so slightly in disgust. “I walked away from her after that. I couldn’t stop wiping my mouth and I just felt so dirty I- I’m sorry.”

The story was believable and it matched up with what you and your best friend had witnessed. Relief washed over you as you put together the entire story. You took a step toward Jimin who still refused to look directly at you and you stood in front of him.

“I was there. Me and Jiyeon were jogging in the park and we saw it, well parts of it.” Your voice grew weaker with every word, it was hard for you to address him because even though you had established that it wasn’t his fault, it still happened and you were upset about it. He looked shocked by your confession, but remained silent. You took another step closer to him and he looked uncomfortable in the close proximity. “I believe you.” You said, chocking up just a bit as you grabbed his cheeks gently to turn his head toward you and kiss him.

Jimin expected you to yell at him and possibly smack him, so he was completely shocked when you reacted in the opposite way. But regardless of his surprise, he kissed back. The kiss was an apologetic one that seemed to release the built up tension, but at the same time it held a bit of doubt from his end. He pulled away first.

“What..?” Jimin was at a loss for words, confused by your reaction.

“You didn’t kiss back.” Was your answer. “You didn’t kiss her back and that’s all that matters. I trust you completely and I can’t live without you, so I don’t blame you.” Tears began to swell in your eyes. “I choose not to blame you.”

“I would never hurt you, or do anything to break your trust.” He said looking deeply into your eyes. His were also pink and it broke your heart to see him so guilty about this, even after you had forgiven him. You just barely nodded your head, but that was answer enough for him. This time he initiated the kiss, gently pressing his lips to yours almost cautiously, as if still asking for forgiveness. When your arms wrapped around his neck he finally relaxed, melting into your lips and bringing his hands to your waist, pulling you closer to him. His tongue swiped across your bottom lip and you gladly granted him entry into your mouth, deepening the kiss.

This kiss felt different from all the other ones. It held more emotion and it said a lot more than any other kiss that you have ever had. It was a kiss of relief, apologies, forgiveness, regret, love, and so much more that words could never express.

Your bodies pulled away before you could register, the lack of oxygen taking top priority and you found yourselves panting. He pressed his forehead against yours and looked into your eyes as you regained your breath.

“You know I love you, right? You and only you, no matter what.” His words were whispered but you heard them loud and clear. You nodded and pecked his lips, but as soon as your lips connected you knew that you wouldn’t be able to pull away. Jimin’s hands traveled from your waist down to your butt, cupping your cheeks and lifting you up onto the counter. Your legs immediately opened to let him settle his body between them. There was a sudden burning desire in the pit of your stomach that made you feel hot all over. His touch on your skin felt like fire as he moved his fingertips along your waist and legs, lips still locked in a passionate kiss. His fingers traveled up your thighs to the waistband of your thin pajama shorts and snuck under it, kneading the flesh of your ass.

Your bodies pressed together and you could now feel his bulge poking at your core through the layers of clothes. Jimin let out a low groan, almost a growl, when you grinded up against him. He released your lips and reached for your shirt, lifting it over your head to expose your breasts. You reached for his and he quickly pulled it off of his body to join your shirt on the floor. His hands found your breasts and he kneaded them in his soft hands as his lips found your neck. Arching into his touch, you gently ran your fingers through his hair, massaging his scalp. His lips traveled lower until they met his hands and he latched on to one of your perked nipples. A quiet moan sounded from your lips and encouraged him to go on, and he did, playing a little rougher as he bit the other nipple, smirking at your reaction.

His hands once again moved to your ass, but they slid under you and with one swift motion, Jimin lifted you up. Your legs wrapped around him instinctively as he carried you out of the kitchen as though you weighted nothing. He walked up the stairs with ease and you couldn’t help but marvel at how strong he was, you got tired going upstairs with just your own body weight. In the meantime, you preoccupied yourself with kissing the sweet spots on his neck. You kissed his moles, grinning silently to yourself at how cute they were before moving on to places you knew would turn him on. Should I leave marks? You asked yourself when Jimin reached the top of the staircase. Fuck it. Nibbling on his sensitive skin may not have been the best idea because it made him weak in the knees and he had to stop walking to control himself again. You giggled in his ear as he resumed walking with more urgency and you looked down at him, satisfied with the new mark you had made that he would have trouble hiding later. That’ll show her. He’s mine. Kissing his hot skin right where you could feel his quickening pulse made him groan. He pulled you harder into him, allowing his clothed erection to grind into your core, causing both of you to let out strained moans as he burst through your bedroom door, laying you on the sheets and instantly connecting lips with you.

Finally reaching your destination, you both made haste losing the rest of the clothing items that covered your hot bodies, littering the floor with them instead. Jimin hovered above you, pressing kisses to the tops of your breasts and making his way south. When he reached your hip bones he grasped your thighs and pushed them apart to settle himself in between. Your eyes followed his every movement as he kissed your inner thighs and sucked gently on the skin closest to your core, taking in the fresh fragrance of your body wash and moist heat.

A whine left your swollen lips when he exhaled onto your core after taking a deep breath of your scent. His lips grazed your soft outer lips and you couldn’t help but impatiently buck your hips toward him, encouraging him to taste you. Jimin took your suggestion and darted his tongue out to lick a long strip through your folds, ending at your throbbing clit only to trace its steps back down your slit. A shiver went up your spine and you bit your lip in pleasure. Two of his digits moved to spread your lower lips and your sensitive pink pearl was revealed to him, the bundle of nerves swallowing at his hungry gaze. Jimin’s eyes then flicked up to yours to find you propped up on your elbows, watching him intently as you waited for him to please you. With a quick smirk Jimin’s head dipped down and he touched your clit with the tip of his tongue, letting his saliva drip onto it as lubrication. You gasped at the gentle touch but whined at him for teasing you. He sunk his entire mouth down on your core in apology and your arms gave out underneath you. One of your hands flew to his head while the other one gripped one of your breasts, making Jimin growl at the sight.

His tongue pushed through your folds, putting delicious pressure on your clit. He flicked his tongue rapidly across the button making your toes curl at the sensation. Everything Jimin did felt amazing to you and you couldn’t tell if it was his skills, the emotional connection you shared, or both, but you didn’t care. Only he could make you this hot and you both knew it. Sucking gently on the bud, Jimin locked eyes with you and for a moment you held his gaze, until you felt his fingers slip into your dripping hole and your eyes snapped shut. Two of them eased past your tight ring of muscles, making you moan loudly. Jimin enjoyed watching your reactions, the furrow of your eyebrows and the assault of your bottom lip by your desperate teeth encouraging him to continue. He dipped his tongue into you alongside his fingers to gather the liquid seeping out of your body, a taste that he knew well and had practically become addicted to. Once he decided that you were wet enough, he pulled his mouth away while leaving his fingers to slowly pump you as he made his way up to your face.

The loss of his heat made you open your eyes to focus on his face which was a mere few centimeters away from yours. He smirked at your expression, your facial muscles twitching in delight when he curled his fingers into your spot. You let out a shaky breath that was barely a moan and Jimin couldn’t resist kissing your lips.

“I’ll never eat anyone else out like this because no one tastes as sweet as you.” Jimin whispered to you as he removed his fingers and sucked on the wet digits right in front of your face. The sight made you crave him more and your legs wrapped around his waist to hint at what you wanted. He giggled at your eagerness and bent down to peck your lips once before leaning back on his knees and positioning himself at your entrance.

“I love you.” You told Jimin right before he pushed his solid length into you. “Oh fuck, I love you.” You moaned as he stretched you out with one hard thrust. He rocked his hips gently while you adjusted, bending down to capture your lips in a sweet kiss. He ground his hips against yours a little harder with every passing thrust until he had built up a steady pace and was completely sunken into your cavern. A puff of air left you as the breath was knocked out of your lungs when Jimin snapped his hips and reached a spot deep within you. You wanted to say something to him, maybe about how good he felt inside you, but your brain was currently incapacitated, completely unable to form words because of the pleasure he was giving you.

“I’ll never fuck anyone else because no one will be as tight and wet for me like you always are.” Your boyfriend nuzzled his face into the crook of your neck and left a few marks of his own along your jawline and collarbone. You knew you wouldn’t be able to hide them easily, but at least you’ll match with him, letting the world know that you belonged to each other. A hand crept up the expanse of Jimin’s muscular back and latched on to his soft locks at the back of his head. Whimpers left you as he managed to somehow push himself deeper into you without picking up his speed, clearly enjoying the slow pace that he had fallen into.

This was something you had never experienced with anyone before. Sure you had fucked Jimin before, as well as a few others whose names you didn’t care to remember, but this was different from all the other times. This time he took the time to praise you, whispering sweet nothings into your ear that meant everything to you. It was intimate and emotional and slow, which was a change from the usual sex that you had with him. Your bodies stayed close the entire time and you craved the contact. You wanted to feel every part of him and you wanted more so you used your free hand to find his and intertwined your fingers together. He gave your palm a little squeeze when you tightened around him and a sexy growl came from his throat, prompting you to do it again. This was all new to you. Jimin wasn’t fucking you this time. You were making love, and that fact alone heightened your pleasure immensely.

“Ah, right there.” The words left you in a breath as your lover’s swollen tip brushed a sensitive spot inside you. He could feel you clench when he did it again and increased the power of his thrusts, angling his hips so he could reach that spot easier. His free hand moved your left leg higher, granting him more access and therefore allowing him to assault your g-spot more directly. You gasped as he continued to hit it. Your head was thrown back and your eyes were squeezed shut, but you could feel him looking at you, soaking in the sight of you nearing the edge, eager to bring you over.

“Cum for me, baby girl. You look so beautiful when you cum on my cock.”

His voice was husky and his eyes were trained on you as he continued to prod your insides with his throbbing member, licking and biting his bottom lip to contain the moans caught in his throat. Bringing a hand between your bodies he pressed his fingers to your clit, rubbing hard circles against it in time with his thrusts. Toe curling pleasure shot through you as your back arched off the bed, chest pressing into Jimin’s while your mouth hung open in a silent scream. White spots flashed behind your eyelids and your nails dug into Jimin’s muscular back and shoulders while you tightened uncontrollably around his thick member that was still pumping into your core. Finally the sounds broke free from your voice box and you let out a string of shaky moans, throat vibrating against the lips pressed to the skin, sucking gently to heighten your pleasure. The pull of your orgasm was slow and drawn out, Jimin’s tempered thrusts dragging it out and adding to its intensity.

Before your high had subsided, you were flipped onto your stomach quickly. You glanced back to find Jimin climbing back over your body, nudging your legs apart with his knees as he ascended. Grabbing your hips, he gently lifted them to slide a pillow underneath so that you were propped up for him. With your bottom now exposed, Jimin spread your ass cheeks apart and rubbed his tip along your folds. The sensation caused you to whine from sensitivity but you wanted to help him reach his climax too so you tried your best not to wiggle away. After a few seconds of watching your reactions, Jimin decided you had calmed down enough to take him again and reentered you slowly from behind. He groaned at the feeling of your tightness around him and you could feel his cock throbbing as he held back. You sunk your teeth into your lip, attempting to ignore the way your walls spasmed in their hypersensitive state.

Through your quiet whimpers you could hear Jimin grunting softly above you, moving at a faster pace than before with sloppier thrusts. He was close and you could feel it. His hand traced the dip of your spine, the gentle touch sending shivers throughout your body. Leaning over you slowly, Jimin pressed soft kisses to your skin trailing up your back to your shoulders and neck. As his lips moved higher he gently eased his weight onto you, supporting himself on his muscular arms until he was laying completely on top of you, body pressing into yours as his sinful hips continued to work against you. You welcomed his heaviness on top of you, the weight restricting you while also feeling comforting. You could feel the clenching of his abs every time he pushed into you, the friction of his sweaty body against your back oddly arousing.

“Mmmm, baby girl, you feel so good.” Jimin growled into your ear, biting the lobe softly. His hips began to pick up speed gradually and the heat between your bodies increased.

“Ahh… Jiminnie~” You whimpered, unable to form a proper reply.

“How- fuck- how are you always this tight?” He practically whispered as he allowed his head to rest in the junction between your neck and your shoulder. His hands traveled up your sides and up the length of your bent arms until they reached your hands and intertwined with your fingers. You allowed his body to mold with yours as he got lost in the feeling of you. Moans and whimpers left your lips as another orgasm built up in your core, your noises mixing with Jimin’s groans and the creak of the bed beneath you.

Jimin’s sounds grew louder as he thrust full force into you, the pace intensifying quickly. You couldn’t help but moan when he sucked on the sensitive skin of your neck, adding to the galaxy of bruises that colored your skin. His member was throbbing inside of you, aching for release and nearing its limit every time it sunk into your wetness. But Jimin wanted you to let go before him, he wanted to feel you squirm beneath him as you came, hear his name desperately leave your lips repeatedly, so he held back.

“Baby, are you close?” He panted into your shoulder, his breath fanning across your skin, making you even hotter.

“Yes, yes! I’m so fucking close.” You squeezed your eyes shut and focused on reaching your high. “Please make me cum Jimin, it feels so good. I love the way your cock stretches me out. Please don’t stop!” Your words had an effect on both of you and you could feel your walls beginning to clench around Jimin. With the added tightness, he realized that he wouldn’t be able to last longer than you.

“Together, baby girl.” He barely managed to get the words out as his hips moved spastically against yours, the pace so fast that it was hard for him to keep up, but he wouldn’t dream of slowing down. “Cum with me.” He breathed.

The way he was pounding into you allowed the pillow beneath you to rub against your clit. You tried to move your hips as much as possible under him to increase the feeling and you groaned loudly when you were successful. Shortly after, you felt yourself losing control and your walls spasmed around his girth, moments away from your second orgasm.

“J-Jimin I’m cumming!!” You called, voice projecting louder than you expected but you didn’t care.

Shit, me too,” He rasped, burying his face deeper into your neck and squeezing your hands tighter. “Let it go, (Y/n).” You felt your orgasm rip through you in waves, causing your legs to quiver and your body to go limp. Your walls convulsed around Jimin’s thick, pulsating cock as he released inside of you, hips stuttering as he moaned your name, finishing with a wispy fuck breathed into your ear. He laid weakly on top of you, his weight pressing you into the mattress, the heat radiating from his sweaty skin making you slightly uncomfortable, but you were too drained to complain. He released your hands to wrap his arms around your waist before he rolled to his side until he was spooning you.

It took about 10 minutes for you both to recover and calm down completely. You were more out of breath than you thought you should be, considering that you hadn’t been the one doing all of the work, yet you still felt exhausted and weak. Jimin’s breathing calmed eventually and you were both left laying on the messy sheets, not wanting to move. Your back was pressed tightly against his chest and you could feel his heartbeat syncing up with yours as you became more relaxed.

Jimin nuzzled his face into your hair before breaking the heavy silence. “I’m sorry about what happened today.” He sighed, his words muffled slightly. “But I really need you to know that I would never cheat on you or purposely hurt you. I love you and only you.” A kiss was pressed to the crown of your head. You stayed silent for a little while after he said those words and Jimin started to think you had fallen asleep until you replied.

“I know.” You wanted to say more, but you didn’t know what else to say. The silence made it seem like you were still upset, even though your anger had long passed, so Jimin continued to gush to you.

“If you don’t believe me then I’ll prove it. I’ll get you a promise ring as a place holder for the real thing because I want to spend the rest of my life with you, (Y/n).” This made you smile to yourself, releasing pleasant butterflies in the pit of your stomach.

“A promise ring?”

“Yup, until we’re ready for the real deal. That is, if you want it.” You laughed at his remark.

“Of course I want it.” Jimin breathed a sigh of relief. “But I need you to make another promise to me.”

“Anything.”

“Promise me you won’t hang out with Gaeul anymore. At least not alone, she can’t be trusted.” Your jealousy shone through and you both giggled before Jimin agreed and sealed the promise with a kiss.

A/N: I really don’t know where this came from… I think I watched too many Kdramas before writing this. Fun fact- Gaeul means autumn in Korean :D

why i adore the front bottoms

im in a decent mood rn and im listening to elvis depressedly, so im gonna write about why i care so much about the front bottoms for anyone who’ll read it.

* They make me happy. Happier than I’ve ever been my entire life. I’m not depressed and I don’t consider myself a sad person, but Jesus, it’s like I don’t even know what sadness is when I’m listening to them. 

* I can only describe it as finally “finding my place” when it comes to music. As someone who is constantly surrounded by rap/trap music, and has never been into that type of music, it took a real long time for me to find a genre of music I relate too. It was never trap music, or pop music, I liked screamo for a few years but eventually I stopped that too. And it’s like I finally found something that I understand

* I consider them my “happy place”. I never understood what people meant by a band changing their lives, because, you know, it’s a freaking band, you never met them, they don’t know you.. How can it become anything more than thinking: “Wow, I really love this song”. But it can and it’s a really lovely feeling. 


*  They introduced me to other bands who make me happy. Without them I don’t even know where I’d be right now. I literally have no idea. Probably going downhill hella fast considering my anxiety has been acting up lately for reasons I don’t even know. I’d have to start seeing someone again. It’d be awful. I’m not saying my anxiety goes away 100% when I listen to them and I’m magically all better again, that’s not how it works (for me at least). But it helps quite a lot. And the other bands they introduced me too do the same thing; if tfb isn’t working for me that night I switch to Modern Baseball, etc. 

*I just get this feeling of rightness every time I hear Brian’s voice or I watch Mat drumming, and my stomach and heart get all fluttery and everything is so right, you know? And I’ve never felt that before. 

Making a “Cliche” Romance Story Stand Out.

Anonymous asked (paraphrased/redacted by me):

I want to do a series of vampire books following five different characters, which a final book that ties each story together. My first book is a romance between a werewolf/vampire hunter and a vampire prince.

My main concern is that vampires, werewolves, and romance are so super overdone. I don’t want my first book to be considered just another supernatural teen romance when it’s going to be part of a much bigger story arc. I don’t know how to keep from falling into stereotypes of this genre and how to make my book stand out. Do you have any tips for this?

1. Focus on the non-romance aspects of the book when you market.

Now, I hate misleading marketing as much as the next person, but if you’re planning a story in a huge world where other books in the same series will have various focuses, even the romance focused books should be more then simply romance. 

What else is part of this “cliche” romance? Is there action? Mystery? Politics? Suspense? What are these two character doing while they fall in love? If the story has a strong plot during which the romance happens, you can market that aspect of the book in tandem with the romance aspect.

2. Give the world a twist. 

Your vampires and werewolves and supernatural creatures make the base of your story, but maybe you can let go of another part of your world in order to make the series as a whole more original. Switch things up a bit. Give the readers the “cliche” romance in a brand new setting.

Steampunk Vampires. Vampires on spaceships. Cowboy vampires. Vampires with airships in a post-apocalyptic desert world. Vampires in a futuristic society with androids and laser guns. The options are endless.

3. Promote the characters over the romance.

Most readers love the story for the characters, whether they be part of a unique and entirely original world, or something a little more cliche. Make your characters likable and interesting, and convey these aspects to potential readers at every chance you get.

Who are your main couple? What makes you (and subsequently, your readers) love them? In what ways do they stand out? What do they want to achieve and what do they need to learn over the course of the story? 

You want to know these things by heart, and work them into every blurb you have, and very heavily into your first chapter. Prove to your readers that even though the story itself might be “cliche,” the characters who go through those “cliche” motions are intriguing and worth sticking with.

4. Keep everything as it is: Paranormal romance (as well as other types of romance, and “overdone” genres) have been done a lot because they have a huge audience. 

A lot of this audience hasn’t stopped loving it just because it’s been “overdone.” Personally, I still jump at a well done paranormal romance, because vampires and werewolves are a part of my youth and (when written well) they won’t ever get old. 

Even if the end result of all your work gives you something that looks exactly like all the other “cliche” paranormal romances, a huge amount of people will still eat it up. There is a large, lingering audience for “cliche” genres, and flat out marketing towards that audience may just be the best thing you can do for your series.

5. To my anon friend: Why does this book have to be the first book in your series? To other “cliche” book writers: Why are you writing this book to begin with?

In your case, anon, you plan to write five or so books, each focusing on its own set of characters in the world. Does your timeline restrict you into having the paranormal romance be the first book in the series? If it doesn’t match the genre of the other books, can it be a side story, an additional book which goes with the series but isn’t the start of it?

In the case of anyone who feels they’re working on a “cliche” book: Why are you writing this book to begin with? What made you fall in love with this “cliche” idea? Chances are, if you fell in love with it then someone else will too, no matter how cliche you feel the story is.

anonymous asked:

Hey, do you have any tips for how to write the first chapter or at least the beginning of a chapter? I'm just so bad at this. The rest would come to me If I just know how to begin

Hi, love!  Thanks for your question and for your patience :)

So writing a first chapter is basically a two-party process: brainstorming a few different ideas, and deciding which suit the purpose of introducing your story.  The second part is the one that always gets me – because no matter how many possibilities there are, I worry about which one is the best for the purpose.

So that’s what I’m going to outline here.  What should be the criteria for a first chapter?

  • A feel of the setting.  As soon as a reader opens the first page, they need to be immersed in your world, no matter how significant the setting is to the story.  If you’re bouncing between ideas, pick a setting with strong imagery and sensory details.  It helps to take the primary emotion of the scene (e.g. if a character is being chased, the primary emotion would be fear) and use it to color the scenery (wind/rain/thunder, darkness) and sensations (flashes of color, conversations blurring together, heart pounding, panting).  These will tie your theme together and draw your reader in, as well as inspiring empathy for the POV character.
  • Information about the main character.  Don’t see this and jump to infodumping, though – no one cares about your character’s MBTI at chapter one.  But they do want something to let them know who they’re dealing with.  Take a predominant trait and let us see it and feel it throughout that first chapter, so we feel like we’ve learned something.  It’s like when you meet someone at a party!  If they share too much, you’re uncomfortable; if they share too little, they’re just “that person whose name I forgot.”  But, if they’re that guy with the big hat, or that girl who kept shouting “You communist!”, then it’s a lot easier to remember their name is Sam.
  • Something obscured from the reader’s view.  Your first chapter risks functioning as a short story, or “that interesting book I started but forgot about,” if there isn’t incentive to keep reading.  You need to answer a lot of questions, of course, but you have to leave a few unanswered.  Take the mystery of your plot (and if you don’t have one, that’s another ask entirely) and drop us right into it – even if it’s something small.
  • A taste of what the story will be.  The first chapter should be interesting, exciting, yes – but it should represent what the story is, so think about the whole story for a minute.  What’s the genre?  Who are the key characters?  What’s the arc and the plot that we need to look for?  It’s like a first date – you want to look good, of course, but if you misrepresent yourself, the relationship won’t last. Let the readers hear your author’s voice, loud and clear, and let them know what to expect from here out.
  • Stakes, stakes, and more stakes.  Mystery is one thing.  Not knowing what might get you is one very good thing.  But knowing for certain that something is out there – something bad is going to happen and it’s only a matter of time – will turn pages for you.  Even if we don’t know exactly who the character is or what they’re facing, let us feel that nervousness of, “What if she does this?  “What if he doesn’t get there in time?”  “What if he never breaks up with that girl?”  Otherwise, you’re advertising a merry-go-round, and that’s never as popular as a rollercoaster.  I know that from Rollercoaster Tycoon too.  Seriously, merry-go-rounds make garbage money.

So when planning your first chapter, consider these aspects and narrow down your ideas.  That way, when you know you’ve planned well, you can feel confident to get started!

If this doesn’t answer your question, be sure to let us know!  I hope this helps :)

If you need advice on general writing or fanfiction, you should maybe ask us!

Interest Check: Homestuck Harlequin Challenge

This is an interest check for a potential fanwork challenge! After some discussion within the Discord, a few of us are interested in running a Harlequin challenge.

What is a Harlequin challenge?

The name of the game is Harlequin AUs, in which your faves are transplanted into a ridiculous romance novel, the type that only comes in paperback from lines like Harlequin and Mills & Boon. Extravagant drama, a forest-worth of pining, agonized proclamations of love, making out in the rain– all your favorite and dreaded romance tropes, shovel them in!

Shorthand: the kind of stories that Karkat Vantas would love to read.

Rose moving to a small town to escape her Tragic Past and meeting a lovely horned fashion designer, and falling in love! Karkat writing the Next Great Novel and finding inspiration in his muse, a mysterious nighttime DJ he listens to, and falling in love! Jake needing to get married to appease his old gran and stay in her will, and his best bro Dirk volunteering to tie the knot with him, and them falling in love! John weathering his first job as a paralegal for terrifying hotshot lawyer Terezi, and falling in love!

Sensing the trend?

Is this for writers or for artists?

Potentially both. This is what the interest check is meant to ascertain: the structure of the challenge. There are a few options– a straight up fanfic challenge, a more loose “make whatever you want” fic/art/other fest, or a Big Bang.

A Big Bang structure sort of requires us to have about the same number of writers to pair with artists and fanmixers and graphic folks. We’ll only go with this direction if the numbers are right.

What timeframe are you looking at?

Tentatively, a two-month period with a check in halfway through to make sure things are going smoothly.

I’m interested in participating, but don’t know much about Harlequin-style work. Can I get a prompt?

Again, tentatively there is a plan to handle this.

For people who know how this works and know what they wanna make, you’ll have a basic guideline of what to create, just some thematic stuff to keep you skewed close to the challenge. Everything else is up to you.

For people who want a little more guidance, we can offer a list of commonplace tropes and narratives for this genre, or even a sampling of book-style summaries that you can use as your basic plot.

Any restrictions? Pairings? NSFW?

In the event of a challenge that isn’t pairing people up, we probably will let you create whatever you like. For a Big Bang-style challenge or similar, we’ll ask for your age and what pairing you think you’ll be doing so we can pair you up with similarly-minded folks.

All of this is subject to change. Right now, we simply want to know if anyone is interested in doing this, and if so, what they would like the make.

To that end, if you are interested, please:

1. Reblog this post.
2. Tag it with what you are interested in doing. Let us know if you want to write fic or art something up or make a fanmix/soundtrack for a fic, or anything else.
(Or, you can just signal boost it, that is very helpful too!)
3. If you want updates, please follow @hsharlequin, where we will be sharing info as it becomes available, including organizational news.

Masterlist

Warnings/Genre: Smut, Threesome

Pairing: Taehyung x Reader, Jimin x Reader, Taehyung x Jimin ?

Word count: 3576


You made your way through the crowd heading back to the bar. Your skin was now glistening from dancing.You definitely needed a break from the dance floor. You ordered yourself a drink, then looked back at your friends. They were still on the dance floor grinding against god knows who crotch. This is definitely what you needed a girls night out.

You had been in a slump needless to say. Your boyfriend that you swore you would marry, ending up breaking up with you. The two of you were in two different relationships is what it felt like. And eventually you saw it coming, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t hurt any less.

That was almost 8 months ago, and you had yet to go out on one date. That didn’t mean your friends didn’t try setting you up every chance they got. Because they did, even your co-workers tried too. You turned down every one of their offers. If you weren’t ready you weren’t ready.

At this point though you were ready to meet someone. Not necessarily date, but you were definitely ready for a hookup. It had been way too long since someone actually touched you in that way. Probably a year actually. Being that towards the end of your relationship with your ex you both grew distant. Which meant you weren’t having any sex.

Therefore you were extremely horny, and in desperate need to have sex. A shameless one nightstand is what you needed. That’s why you had agreed to let your friends take you out tonight in the first place. So far though you weren’t having any luck. You were though having a great time with your friends, but no one had seemed to catch your eye.

You sat there for a moment giggling to yourself at how your friends were dancing. When you noticed him. You hadn’t seen all night. You’re not sure even how you missed him, he was so handsome. He was tall with tanned skin, that seemed to glow when the strobe lights hit him. You couldn’t help, but stare. He was dancing in between two girls and a guy. The guy was probably his friend or something.

You must have been staring for almost a minute when he finally noticed you staring at him. You quickly looked away, your cheeks now flushed. It had been too long because here you were staring at this guy, like you’ve never seen a man before.

You quickly glanced back over at him, thinking he had to have looked away by now. But instead, you were met with his eyes staring back at you. All while the girl he probably came with, had her arms now wrapped around his neck. As she pressed her body against his whispering something into his ear. Still, he was gaze was on you.

Finally, you brought yourself out of whatever trance you were in. And turned around finishing off your drink. You weren’t going to waste your time or embarrass yourself anymore. Even though he was extremely attractive. He was dancing with a girl that was pretty much pushing herself onto him. While he just stood there practically eye fucking you. Yeah, that’s not what you were looking for. You ordered yourself another drink. Accepting the fact that you weren’t getting any tonight.


You sat there for awhile. A few guys had come and gone trying to chat you up. None though seemed to spark your interest. You sighed deciding you should probably call it a night. Your friends had long disappeared by now. Probably finding their guy that they’re going to go home with.

You pulled out your phone, getting ready to text one of your girlfriends to let them know you were leaving. When you heard a rather deep voice asking if you wanted another drink.

You looked up to see that same handsome stranger, that you were practically drooling over earlier. “No thanks,” you shook your head. “I’m actually just leaving.”

“But I just sat down,” he pouted. “I’m sorry, but weren’t you with some girl? Maybe she can come keep you company.” You came off harsher than you intended it to be.

“Actually if you must know I’ve been desperately trying to get away from her all night.” He said shaking his head. “C’mon let me buy you a drink, just stay for one more drink.” He flashed you his boxy smile, trying to convince you.

That smile just about melted you. “Ok, I’ll have whatever you’re having.” you smiled back at him. His face instantly lit up. He gestured for the bartender. 

One drink wasn’t going to hurt. Just one more drink for the road you told yourself.

Once he ordered the drinks, he turned back to you. “Taehyung,” he extended his arm out to you. You were a little taken back by his formalities all of the sudden. But you went along with it. 

“Y/n,” you said as you shook his hand.


One drink turned into 3 others. The both of you sat there chatting away. He was too charming, he knew all the right things to say to you. He listened intently when you spoke, always making eye contact. He laughed at all your jokes and your sarcasm. You were actually enjoying yourself. So when he asked you to dance, you agreed.


The dance floor was less crowded now. You began moving your hips to the beat of the song. While Taehyung started inching closer and closer to you. Your bodies were now touching as you danced against him. Your moves began slower and more sensual. And Taehyung’s face was so close to you now, you could feel his breath on you.

Your eyes traced the outline of his lips. He seemed to notice and licked his lips. You were about to lean and kiss him. When suddenly he was moving away from you. You recognized the guy that he was with earlier, grabbing his shoulder and telling him something. You couldn’t quite make it out though. Taehyung just nodded his head in response and turned back to you.

“This is my friend Jimin” he looked back at his friend and, then back at you. You leaned in closer so he could hear you, and introduce yourself. Now that you were closer, you noticed how attractive he was too. His body was fit, his legs were muscular and well defined. You guessed he was a dancer of some sort.

Taehyung leaned in closer to you asked if he could join you. He said something along the lines of the girl he was with bailed and now he was all alone. You nodded in agreement.

You were actually kind of disappointed. You thought the night was turning around. That maybe just maybe, you were actually going to get laid tonight. But hey at least you were dancing in between two attractive guys.

Though Jimin had joined you, Taehyung was still dancing with his body pressed against yours. You even forgot Jimin was there when Taehyung started pressing kisses on your jawline. You started pushing yourself against him. Feeling yourself getting more turned on as you danced against him.

You felt you Jimin’s hands come out from behind you, and you caress your hips. But you didn’t push him away. Instead, you backed into him. Grinding your ass into his crotch. All while Taehyung pushed his knee in between your legs. Letting it brush against your core.

You weren’t sure what it was. Maybe it was the drinks you had or the fact that you haven’t had sex in so long. But the thought of going home with Jimin and Taehyung sounded very appealing to you.

As if Taehyung read your mind, he moved his lips to your ear. Sticking his tongue out, and licking a stripe on your earlobe. Before asking if you wanted to head back to his. His breath tickling the shell of your ear. Sending shivers straight down to your core. You practically moaned yes. The alcohol in your system helped you feel a little less embarrassed at your eagerness.

You knew exactly what he was insinuating. Of course, this was something you had never done before. But you weren’t necessarily against it. They way you were dancing in between them made your head spin. All you knew was this felt good. You wanted this.

With that, the three of you were off. Quickly heaving in and out of the crowd. Making it towards the exit and catching a cab.

The cab ride to Taehyung’s flat was silent. You were actually starting to wonder if this was their plan all along. Have they done this before? Was this something that they did often? Would that change anything? Probably not. This is what you wanted, a one night stand. Not necessarily a threesome, but this was definitely better than going home alone.


Once the three of you were at Taehyung’s flat, he led you straight into his bedroom. With Jimin following behind closely. Taehyung started kissing you, while Jimin sat at the edge of the bed and watched. It felt strange at first having someone watch you whilst you made out with someone.

Was this how this was going to be the whole time? You’re not really sure how threesomes work. You only knew of what you watched on porn. You pushed those thoughts out of your head and let Taehyung kiss you. 

Taehyung started pulling at your dress. Helping you get out of it. His lips never leaving yours. All while guiding you backward towards the bed. Jimin’s hands reached out for you taking you out of Taehyung’s grasp. Letting Taehyung undress.

Jimin was already shirtless when you turned around. His skin looked soft and inviting. His chest and stomach defined. You instantly lowered yourself, placing kisses all over his chest. And running your hands over his torso. Letting one of your hands drop lower. Skimming the fabric that covered his bulge. Eliciting a soft grunt from Jimin. That was enough to send you into overdrive.

It had been so long since you’ve had a man react to you touching them. You wanted more. You quickly stood up pulling Jimin up with you. Jimin and Taehyung were both shirtless now, standing side by side. You studied them for a bit. Bringing hands to each of their chests. And slowly running your fingers down to their abdomen, and back up.

Taehyung was a bit taller than Jimin. His skin was darker in comparison to Jimin. Though his body was still defined, Jimin definitely had more muscle. Taehyung took initiative more than Jimin. He was the one that got you here. He was the one that got you undressed. And now he was the one reaching out to you. Cupping your breast, kneading the soft flesh in his large hands. Running the pads of his fingers over your nipple. Then lightly tugging them, causing you to part your lips. All the while Jimin watched, studying your reaction as Taehyung touched you.

Suddenly you remembered why you stood up. Making them both stand in front of you. You wanted to feel them, taste them, make them feel good. There was nothing more that turned on, than hearing the noises a guy made when you touched them. And now you had to gorgeous men in front of you. Willing to do anything you asked. Even though there hadn’t been much talking between the three of you. You could tell they were both willing to submit.

You leaned in, pushing your lips against Jimin’s. Kissing him while Taehyung’s hands started to roam your body. You wanted to taste both of them at the same time. You slightly turned your head. Grabbing onto to the back of Taehyung’s head, as you guided his lips to yours.

The three of you sloppily kissed each other. Tongues and teeth clashing. Their hands were both on you, grouping any part of you, they could. Jimin was gaining more confidence to touch you as he grew more aroused.

You moaned into their mouths. It felt so good. You had never kissed two people at the same time before. It was messy, but something about it was so hot. You wanted to explore more. Reluctantly you pulled away and dropped to your knees. They looked down at you with anticipation and lust filled eyes.


You palmed both of them over their jeans. Feeling them start to stiffen under your touch. Without having to say anything Taehyung and Jimin were quickly undoing their pants. You helped by pulling them down along with their underwear.

You took both of their members in each hand. Giving them a few pumps before leaning down and swirling your tongue the tip of Jimin’s dick. Jimin hissed as you swirled your tongue over his slit. Tasting his bitter precum, all while you pumped Taehyung in your other hand. You switched over to Taehyung giving him the same treatment.

“Please y/n, give us more,” Taehyung asked. “We want to feel that pretty little mouth of yours don’t we Jimin?” Jimin looked down at you quickly nodding his head.

You thought about ignoring him. And continuing to tease them, by giving them little kitten licks. But instead, you had a better idea. You’ve watched it before in some porn, and you remembered just how much it turned you on and how hard you came whilst watching it.

“Kiss.” You said looking up at them while still slowly stroking their erections. Taehyung and Jimin looked at each other then looked at you with wide eyes.

“Uh— what do you mean kiss? Kiss you?” Taehyung said absolutely confused and hoping you weren’t actually meaning what he thought you meant.

“Kiss each other, then I’ll suck you both.” You weren’t exactly sure where all this confidence that you got came from. Sure you were never really afraid to ask for what you wanted during sex. But this was completely different than that. This was a fantasy that you never thought would ever actually happen.

“No— sorry that’s not happening, their ” Taehyung said shaking his head no.

“Please,” you said in almost a childlike whine. “It’s so hot, seeing you two do it will get me so wet, enough the thought of it has me almost dripping.” You weren’t lying. You could feel your arousal already sticking to your underwear. And you had barely just started.

You lowered your mouth, sucking the head of Taehyung’s dick lightly. And then pulling him out of your mouth with a lewd pop. You did the same to Jimin.They both groaned at the action.

You weren’t actually sure if they were going to do it now. But to your surprise, Jimin leaned into Taehyung. You expected Taehyung to move away, but he didn’t. Instead, they stayed there for a second. Staring at each other, as if they were mentally having a conversation on whether they should do it or not.

Your core throbbed at the thought that they were so close to doing it. You spit on each of their erections. Then smoothing out your saliva over their dicks. You Squeezed them a little harder and started pumping them a little faster.

Jimin moaned at the sensation, deciding enough was enough. He closed the gap between him and Taehyung, and kissed him. You moaned at the sight of them kissing. Your pussy clenched around nothing.

You quickly lowered your head taking Taehyung’s dick in your mouth first, and then Jimin’s. You looked back up at them to find that their lips were still pressed against one another’s. You moaned against Jimin’s dick. Desperately trying to take more of him into your mouth. While pumped Taehyung’s erection faster.

You were turned on beyond belief. You squeezed your thighs tight together, rubbing them to get any friction possible. Taehyung and Jimin didn’t stop kissing. Their kisses got more passionate. When Jimin parted his lips to moan, Taehyung took the opportunity to put his tongue into Jimin’s mouth. You felt like you could pass out right then and there.

But there was no time for that. You needed something anything to soothe the ache between your legs. You released both of their erections and stood up. Taehyung and Jimin stopped kissing once they realized you stopped.

“Fuck me.” Was all you could say.

Taehyung smirked. “With pleasure,” he said. And then he kissing you, pushing you back towards his bed. Helping you pull down your underwear. Letting it fall down to your ankles. You kicked off the lacy material.

He laid on the bed first, with his back to the mattress and his feet planted on the ground. He signaled you to climbed on top of him.

“I want you to ride me while you suck Jimin off.” He ordered you nodded quickly getting onto the bed. Taehyung extended his hands out towards your hips. Helping you situate yourself on his thighs, while your back faced him.

“Jimin will you get me a condom out of the top drawer?” Taehyung asked, and Jimin did as he was asked. Handing the foil packet to you.

You ripped the packet open, taking out the condom. You lifted your hips and grabbed Taehyung’s member. Giving him a couple pumps before rolling it on. 

You lined the tip at your entrance. Slowly sinking down on his cock. You gasped at the stretch. You knew you were wet enough, but it’s been too long since you’ve been stretched out like this.

You kept your hips still while you adjusted to the size. You looked over at Jimin who was now standing in front of you. His dick in his hand as he slowly stroked himself while he watched you. You motioned him to come closer.You took him into your hand, with your other hand pressed against Taehyung’s thigh for support.

You leaned down taking Jimin into your mouth. You took as much of him in as you could. Bobbing your head up and down coating his dick with your saliva. He groaned, tossing his head back relishing in the feeling of your warm wet tongue. And having your mouth all to himself.

“Fuck,” Taehyung said under his breath. The sight of you sucking of Jimin, and the feeling of you clenching around him was driving him crazy. He held onto your hips, thrusting his hips upwards.

You took the hint and started grinding your hips back and forth, while Taehyung thrust up into you. You moaned around Jimin’s dick trying to keep up. But it was hard, you were quickly losing yourself in the feeling of having Taehyung inside of you.

You pulled Jimin’s cock out of your mouth, no longer being able to concentrate on sucking him. Jimin quickly stroked himself as he watched you ride Taehyung. You used both hands to grab onto Taehyung’s thighs for support. You finally raised your hips up before slamming them back down, bouncing on Taehyung’s cock.

You were going to come embarrassedly fast, with the way Taehyung dick rubbed against your walls. But you couldn’t seem to care. You were watching Jimin pull on his cock as hard as he could. While he watched you ride Taehyung.

Taehyung’s thrust became harder and faster. And you cried out in pleasure as his balls kept slamming against your clit. Your orgasm was coming fast. Your body began to tremble and your toes curled. You squeezed your eyes shut seeing all white. As spurts of electricity shot through your body.

You were panting and moaning mess now. Taehyung kept thrusting upwards, letting you ride out your high. Until finally you slumped forward. You opened your eyes just in time to see Jimin’s face contort. As white ribbons of his cum shot out covering his hand.

Taehyung wrapped his arm around your waist, flipping you both over. So now your chest was pressed against the mattress. He continued thrusting into you from behind. His hips slamming into your ass, as you laid there. His thrusts became more sporadic as he reached his end. Grunting your name as his cum spilled into the condom.

He collapsed onto you, panting heavily trying to catch his breath. After a moment he pulled out of you and rolled over onto his back. Just then Jimin was walking back into the room, and handing you a cloth to clean yourself up. You didn’t even notice that he had left the room. He was now cleaned up with his boxers now on.

You wiped yourself off a bit then tossed the rag somewhere on the floor. You turned over to see Taehyung cleaning himself off too and then climbing back into bed with you.

“That was fucking amazing,” Taehyung said as he pulled the covers over the both of you. “ I think I’m going to sleep like a baby tonight.”

You laughed and nuzzled in closer to him. You were so exhausted, your eyelids were starting to grow heavy. Before you let yourself fall asleep you looked around for Jimin. He was gone, you were going to mention something to Taehyung. But when you turned to face him, he was sound asleep, his chest rising and falling.

You giggled to yourself at how fast he had fallen asleep. You closed your eyes figuring you should sleep now too. You would just ask about Jimin tomorrow. With, that you drifted off into dreamland.
