Unseelie Bucky x Reader

Summary: Everybody knows to stay away from the forest, where the Seelie and Unseelie courts remain as a permanent danger to humans. But when the people in your village begin to starve and you face a dangerous journey to the land of the fae, you never think of the consequences it may bring… Until the Prince of Winter himself sets his eyes on you.

Warnings: Blood, death

Word count: 3827

A.N:  Consider me officially invested in this story. I almost couldn’t get this chapter out, but I think it turned our pretty well… Buckle up kids! You’re in for one hell of a ride. MWAHAHAHA!
As usual, this is dedicated to the beautiful Ella @buckysinthesinbin for being a ray of sunshine and helping me pull this through while also putting up with all my  whims and threats and exited texts at one in the morning. You’re the best <3

The small cottage is unusually silent when you wake up. The fire has stopped crackling, wooden logs turned black sitting idly in a heap on the fireplace. There’s no wind, and even the permanently broken window frame has ceased its constant tapping against the wall. A large layer of frost is covering the window now, seeping through the cracks in the glass, tiny ice crystals spreading over the wall next to your bed.

You’ve spent four days locked inside the house, always under the watchful eye of the other girls you share the cottage with, towering over you at all times of the day to make sure nothing strange is going on. Everyone’s been especially paranoid since you came back, not letting you out of their sight for a second, so the girl’s absence only serves to make you uneasy. They wouldn’t have left you unless something bad happened, not when the winter has every single person on edge, and dread builds in your gut when you find your iron tipped knives gone from the bedside table.

Something is wrong, you think, something is terribly, horribly wrong. And you can almost feel it in the air now, like static ready to snap at any second.

Good wood - quirky shapes and style in abundance make up this small wooden cabin in Quebec by Canadian studio YH2. ‘La Colombière’ features stairs without walls and elevated areas without protective railings just to mix it all up.

HAPPY SMUT SUNDAY! 

Daryl Dixon x Reader | Smut Warning | 18+ Only | NSFW |

Request: Hello, first I want to write is that your stories are awfully cute. (I have to admit that you’re doing the best for the Imagine Daryl). Well, I thought, since I’m not so much experience in TWD, because I was in the fifth series. I love stupid crap Merle. Brother Daryl. It occurred to me that the reader will have to suffer the stupid crap Merle and Daryl she stands up, well obviously, Smut. I do not know, it’s a proposal, but I think you would have to grapple with it, I believe you can do it.

Summary: Season 1 Era. Before the pilot and before Merle is left on the roof. Daryl and his brother Merle keep to the outskirts of the camp, Reader is interested in Daryl and starts to try and act friendly toward him, only to end up dealing with Merle constantly hitting on her and trying to grab on her. Daryl finally has enough and tells Merle off. Smut ensues. Daryl claims her. 

(Season 1 Daryl is so fun and Drunk Merle was also fun to write lol. Enjoy!)

Y/N stared across the way as she absent mindedly helped Carol and Andrea fold laundry. You had just pulled all the clean clothes of the line and were now going to work making sure everyone’s laundry was folded and given back to them. “Woman’s work”, as Lori would call it. You were never the type for, “woman’s work,” but you played along because you were grateful the group had taken you in after the end of the world.

Your eyes haze over as your hands work on their own and you focus in on the man who had your eye from the minute you had found these people, Daryl Dixon. He had piercing blue eyes and a glare that just about knocked the breath out of you every time he sent it your way.

You smile to yourself as your eyes run down his dirt covered rippling muscled arms, over to his big barrel chest that unfortunately was covered with a red and white cut off flannel shirt. You imagined yourself popping open each button until his full form was revealed in front of you. You looked down his legs and stared at the button of his jean. You bite your lip as you imagine popping it open, sliding them down, and setting free his cock. You rub your legs together imagining what it would feel like pushing into you making you cry out for more.

Your thoughts were interrupted by a throat clear. You snap eyes over and realize it is Carol’s voice. Carol and Andrea stand there grinning to themselves.

“Why don’t you go on over and say hello? You know you want to.” Carol nodded her knowing eyes your way.

“What about laundry duty?” You ask.

“We got it. You go. Have fun.” Andrea winks at you.

Your face turns a little read and you smile sheepishly for a moment, before taking a deep breath of confidence, turning your heels and walking quickly across the camp. You made a beeline for Daryl and Merle’s setup which was all the way across the camp and way to the back, a few yards away from everyone else. They had two tents set up side by side, with their own fire pit in front of it and an old broken down car to block potential random walkers who could come out of the woods behind the camp.

You dig your heels harder into the dirt as you walk toward him. You smile when you see him hard at work chopping wood, sweat glistening on his skin, radiating him in the bright sunlight. Merle was drinking a beer watching his brother work away, not even offering to help. You scoffed at Merle, you really didn’t like him. He was always so rude and always trying to hit on Andrea when she clearly hated him. He was one of those men you knew all too well back in the real world. Seems that those were the only kind of men who survived now, but not Daryl; Daryl was different.

You watch as Daryl’s toned arms lifted over his head, as he squared his feet, wiggling his hips a little, before slamming the blade down into the wood below. The wood split swiftly in two and dropped to the ground on either side of the big wooden stump. He breathed heavily as he reached down, grabbed another log, and repeated his actions. He grabbed another log and was about to raise his arms in the air to swing again, when he noticed you approaching their camp.

His harsh eyes looked up your body, slower than usual, making them to yours and piercing into your soul, “What is it, sunshine?” He asked with attitude.

Good wood - another awesome log cabin, this one was designed by Manhattan studio JacobsChang in upstate New York and built on a shoestring. Love the contrast between the blackened timber exterior and the cool, calming, minimalist white interior.

DAY 3317

Jalsa, Mumbai               Apr 27,  2017               Thu 11:53 pm






Motionless .. still .. eyes shut in perpetuity .. a form on wooden logs .. covered .. flames about .. and a life turned to ashes ..





I first saw him entering the Ajanta Arts office in Bandra, of Sunil Dutt, where I was making my way to seek a job .. a most good looking handsome young man .. a body in elegant frame ..  a swagger in his walk .. and a gentle smile as he looked towards me .. it was 1969 .. he was working in the Ajanta Arts film, ‘Man ka Meet’ .. I was struggling to get a role, any role, anywhere ..

In time we met again within the same precincts .. he and I were working in the same film of Dutt Saheb, ‘Reshma aur Shera’ .. look trials in the office of the film .. travel and sittings on the story .. Thapa saheb, Ali Raza, Sukhdev and those all night meets, most novel for me .. my first brush with the way the film industry functioned .. the time for the shoot and the excitement of travel on a location in Jaisalmer .. the months we spent together and after .. driving in the scorching heat of the deserts of Rajasthan to the location, Pochina, in the sands of nowhere near civilisation .. living under one tent - Vinod, Ranjit, Thapa Saheb, Ali Raza saheb about seven of us in the same tent .. then similar number at a make shift residence in the city of Jaisalmer - Amrish Puri joining us in that room filled with all of us, living laughing, working .. carefree days .. the rigors of that location and its environs ..

On return from the location his continued connect with me .. he a big star .. but always most humble with selfless concern for others .. the rides he would take me on, in his recently acquired Beetle VolksWagen, yellow in color .. his generosity in smuggling me into the only Disco Club in the city at the Taj, where he was a member, and I not even remotely in any state to become one .. his marriage to Geetanjali, whom he and we all fondly called Gitly .. the birth of his sons, Rahul and Akshay, whom he often brought on to the sets of AAA ..

That incident at a restaurant in SoBo, where someone made a snide remark, and he took him on, getting knifed in the arm during the scuffle, but being victorious .. 

The sudden passing of his Father soon after our work together in ‘Reshma’ .. I being with him in his hour of grief .. and then .. the amazing chemistry of the several historic films that we did together .. an association that was so loveable and considerate .. spending time in each others make up rooms, sharing our lunch, just biding time and talking of all kinds of talk .. the late shoot pack ups and the beyond midnight drives to Juhu Beach, to just sit with our directors and he to have a drink, and I mine ( I used to in those days ) .. 

That guilt ridden incident when I had to fling a glass in a scene towards him and it accidentally hitting his chin, cutting him open right through to his teeth .. the remorse regret and guilt within me to date for that unforgiving accident .. rushing him to his doctor, late at night, getting stitched up, driving with him to his house to settle him in and to just keep apologising for this horrific accidental slip ..

The sudden brush with him as he ran up the stairs in Breach Candy Hospital, where I had gone to visit a friend, and his anger and grave faced expression - he learning of the accident of his close relative on a motorbike, and him wanting to be with her as she struggled for her life .. 

His friendly gesture of appearing in a film of mine ‘Zameer’ .. the times we spent on it at various locations .. the most rigorous being action sequences shot in the interiors of Udaipur, well into the night and dawn, with that most respected Action Coordinator Khanna Saheb .. after the sequence was filmed, Khanna Saheb sitting with us in the early hours of the morning and emotionally expressing his great joy in working with the two of us .. 

“give me these two artists in an action drama and I shall extract the best ever seen” .. he would commend us  ..

The Hotel in Udaipur and our rooms distanced .. me away in one lonely corner and he in another .. I call him in the middle of the night and express the loneliness .. he inviting me over and saying to stay with him in his room .. for a newcomer you cannot imagine what this meant to me to be treated like this by a star ..

His confident charm was infectious .. there was always an optimistic swagger about him .. a smile .. a laugh .. a casualness .. nothing seemed to disturb him one felt .. the relaxed ‘cool’ of today’s times .. 

The jigs we would invent on set .. impromptu songs .. when 5 Librans working together in the same film at the same scene would break into - Shammi Kapoor ji, Amjad, Kader Khan, Vinod and I - our little ditty, on the sets of ManMohan Desai’s “Parvarish”  ..

‘We are crazy Librans .. **%#@!! up this film” .. !!! 

And the uproarious laughter that followed each shot that we gave together ..


And then one day his sudden decision to the following of Rajneesh .. his passion and the strength of his belief .. his sincerity in his following, right to California where Rajneesh had shifted .. I met him in Los Angeles during this period on a stray visit, and he spent hours at a common friend’s place explaining to me what the movement meant not just to him, but to the World in general ..

And this afternoon that association of 48 years came to an end .. 

This man .. this body of enthused energy and giving .. this friend .. this colleague .. this ever smiling swagger infested individual, lay motionless ..

No one walked the way he did .. no one had the presence he had in a crowded room .. no one could lighten up the surroundings he was in, like him .. no one ..

the signs as good experiences

Aries: Laying in a brown tinted room with your partner, your legs on theirs while the tv plays in the background. Smoke fills the air from your recent cigarette and your both sit down drinking alcohol and admiring each others tattoos. You’re in love

Taurus: It’s mid July, school is out, you’re 9 years old hanging out with your friends. You run down the bright green field near a park with waterguns, the sound of children screaming as the ice cold water collides with them fills the air. The sun is shining, everyone’s happy.

Gemini: Your makeup looks good, you walk into the party side and side with your best friend and everyone is in awe of you. Music is loud and everyone is laughing having a good time. Neon lights appear in the air and for those few hours, you forget reality and just let loose.

Cancer: The flowers have bloomed and it’s late afternoon. Everyone has left your group apart from you and her. You sit down watching the sun in a field of daisies discussing future plans. She wants to spend her future with you. You lay down hand in hand and look at each other while she puts flowers in your hair and you admire her freckles.

Leo: The sky is a shade of peach and you can hear the birds chirping. The autumn leaves are scattered on the ground, each one of them waiting to be crunched in contact with your doc martens. Nobody is awake yet, it’s just you and you alone.

Virgo: Everything is the freshest shade of white, you can see your mousy brown hair and beaming smile in the reflection of the counter. Your new house is ready. As your partner wraps their hands around your waist, it’s hit you. Your life is coming into place and everything is good in the world. 

Libra: You’ve been meaning to tell her this for a long time and today is the day. The sound of people screaming on rides fills the air and the smell of popcorn tickles your senses. As you get closer in the line to your ride with her you take her hand and smile. You’ve never been this nervous. Once on top of the ride, you look her deep in the eyes and say ‘’I love you’’ before you drop down in excited screams.

Scorpio: It’s you and her, skin on skin. It’s currently 3am and life couldn’t be better. She climbs on top of you and kisses you passionately before she climbs off and points to the stars from the rooftop you’re on. ‘’You see them two starts next to each other? It’s me and you’’ she says with a happy sigh

Sagittarius: It’s the last day of school, both happy and sad cries are all around as people sign each others yearbooks. You won’t miss this place, truthfully, this is probably the best day of you life. But there’s one thing missing, her. Since you started this school all you’ve wanted to do was speak to her and get to know her, and even call her yours, but it never happened. Opening your yearbook you read the back with all the messages. ‘’Hey (y/n) We never spoke much but I’d like to get to know you over the summer! Here’s my number (h/n) xox- (H/N)

Capricorn: It’s mid October and school is going well. Your grades are high and you’re fairly like by your peers. You step out onto your front porch with your journal and copic markers and start doodling everything around you, the scattered orange leaves on the ground, the house with the broken window next to you. Your mousy brown short hair in the wind. The guy on the bike that just waved at you. Life couldn’t get any better.

Aquarius: The snow is falling down and school has been cancelled. You plan on a netflix marathon of your favourite show all day until there’s a knock at the door. It’s him. ‘’I have something to show you’’ he says. After about 10 minutes of walking in the freezing cold, you enter a forest, inside the forest there is a fire burning and all of your friends are sitting on wooden logs roasting marshmallows. He grabs you buy the face and kisses you while everybody ooh and aww.

Pisces: It’s a 3am pit stop on your road trip. You’re with your 4 closest friends as you exit the car and walk into a local supermarket. You grab and pay for a buttload of snacks before heading back into the car. The sound of neck deep blasts through the car stereo and everybody is having a blast singing along and dancing. You lean your head on his shoulder and he kisses your forehead. There’s 5 hours until your destination and you never want this night to end,

{Reaction} EXO using their powers around you for the first time.

Park Chanyeol

Originally posted by exo-daydreams

Chanyeol didn’t mean to show you his power, it slipped out, causing you both shock. You had been on a camping trip out on the coastline on a beautiful beach. But as the sun went down, the air began to turn cold, and Chanyeol panicked as he saw you visibly shaking.

Chanyeol: “Aish {y/n}. You’re cold as ice”

{y/n}: “I’m alright, really.”

Chanyeol: *sets the wooden logs aflame before your eyes*

His eyes suddenly widened in realization, looking at your that mirrored the expression he pulled. He chuckled sheepishly as he started to manipulate the flame he had made to turn into love heart shapes to turn the situation more romantic to ease your shock.

Chanyeol: “So… I’m guessing this is a good time to tell you I have the ability of fire?”


Do Kyungsoo/ D.O.

Originally posted by missdyoo

Unlike Chanyeol, the use of Kyungsoo’s power had been completely intentional. The two of you had been arguing about a guy you had been seeing. Kyungsoo was pissed off. The only reason you liked this guy was only because of the love he gave you in the bedroom.

Kyungsoo: “That’s a stupid reason to like him! If you dated me, I’d give you the best of both love and lust. You know, like a real relationship” He spoke suddenly in a burst of anger, only realising he had confessed his feelings after he said those words, and watches as your cheeks burned with redness.

{y/n}: “Y-you like me?”

Kyungsoo nodded. He had nothing to lose now he had confessed everything he had been hiding. He pushed you back onto the bed, using all his strength to keep you underneath him.

Kyungsoo: “So you like a man with dominance, huh? I can give you that sweetheart.”


Byun Baekhyun

Originally posted by littlebyuns

Baekhyun had used his power for the greater good {almost} to win over your heart. He had purposefully taken you out on a date in the evening, knowing your fear of darkness.

{y/n}: “Baekhyun, I don’t like the dark. We should just go back-”

Baekhyun: *Creates a ball of light in one hand while he uses his other arm to pull you close* “Don’t worry my beautiful Jagiya, I’ll protect you.”


Oh Sehun

Originally posted by kai-tastrophe

Sehun is one of the smarter members in this aspect. He wouldn’t use his power unless he knew it was completely safe to and that it would go unnoticed, he’d just pull a few simple tricks here and there. But the first time he used it around you made him the happiest.

The two of you had been walking on a mountainside and you had decided to climb up on a tall rock. Sehun manipulated a gust of wind, hitting you square in the back which was enough to make you trip and fall. But of course, Sehun was there to catch you.

Sehun: “don’t be reckless Jagi, honestly”

{y/n}: “but the wind! It-”

Sehun: *smirking* “yeah, yeah, excuses, excuses.” *places a kiss on your lips with you still in his arms*


Zhang Yixing/ Lay

Originally posted by secrethideoutme

You and Yixing has been walking home one evening after a date when you came across an injured hedgehog on the side of the road. You knelt down, looking at Yixing and asking him if you should ring a vet.

Yixing: “There’s nothing they can do… But I might be able to.” *kneels down next to you and uses his healing power*

{y/n}: “That’s incredible…”

Needless to say, the hedgehog became your first pet.


Kim Minseok/ Xiumin

Originally posted by secrethideoutme

You and Minseok were out on a cold wintery day where the air was ice cold and the ground was scattered with soft snow. The two of you held hands, trying to keep each other warm. But the cold wasn’t too much of an issue, the happiness of the moment made up for it.

{y/n}: “it would be really cool if we could go ice skating right now.”

Minseok: “why wait, let’s do it right now” *freezes over a nearby pond and pulls you towards it, smirking* “Don’t worry if you get cold right now, I’ll warm you up later.”


Kim Jongdae/ Chen

Originally posted by daenso

Jongdae had attempted to use his power of lightening discreetly while you were over at his apartment. He had caused a lightning and thunderstorm outside, only to find out you had a phobia of lightning.

{y/n}: “Aish… I feel so stupid. It’s just scared me ever since I was a child.”

Jongdae: *happier you feel this way because now he gets to cuddle and comfort you.* “Its okay Jagiya, I’ll look after you.”


Huang Zitao/ Tao

Originally posted by babypandaztao

Tao is clever about the use of his ability, not just around you, but in general. Time manipulation can be a very dangerous thing, which is why he is so careful about using it. Except one time, his blood boiling and his knuckles going white from clenching his fists too hard, time stopped around him. He looked over at a frozen in time {y/n} and a producer on set she was flirting with.

Tao walked over, his touch unfreezing her.

{y/n}: “what’s happening… Why is everyone stopped?”

Tao: *kisses you against the lips roughly before pulling away, leaving you breathless.* “You’re mine, Jagi.” He grabbed her hand as he unfroze time and dragged her to the closest private room to give her a lesson or two on why she should never let him get jealous*


Kim Junmyeon/ Suho

Originally posted by parkchny

Suho admitted his powers to you from the first day, but never actually showed his ability to you until you pestered him enough to force him into it.

{y/n}: “I’ll only believe it if I see it, Jagi.”

Suho: *opens up his later bottle and starts manipulating shapes, doesn’t stop for ages because he loves the fascinated look on your expression* “Maybe you’re right, I should have shown you this sooner.”


Luhan

Originally posted by moncide

It was his turn to do the dishes, but as you walked through the front door an hour earlier than you usually would since you were let off work early you got to experience why Luhan was so good at doing all his chores on time.

Pots and pans were being cleaned almost by magic as objects moved on their own.

Suddenly, they dropped, and you turned to see a mouth gaping open on Luhan’s expression.

Luhan: “I uh- I can explain”


Kim Jongin/ Kai

Originally posted by kairamelo

Kai grinned as the two of you sat on the sofa in your apartment, you were talking about how you wished you could go to Norway to see the northern lights as it had been your dream since you were a child.

Kai: “Go and get ready then?”

{y/n}: “Get ready? why?”

Kai: “I’m going to take you.”


Wu Yifan/ Kris

Originally posted by qrishan


The first time Kris used his power in front of you was when he was painting the new living room. He levitated up the the ceiling and painted with the aid of his ability, not even phased when you walked in looking at him as if he had grown two more heads.

{y/n}: “Kris… What are you… Doing?”

Kris: “I can fly, {y/n} remember?

{y/n}: “I see… Well I’m just going to sort stuff out upstairs.”

Kris: “Okay Jagi, just be careful going up that flight of stairs” *thinks he’s funny*
