It’s the last day of the @laurahale-appreciation week and today it’s the Dealer’s Choice, and because I can’t resist a chance to remind fandom of Neckz’N’Throats and how there totally should be more Neckz’N’Throats fic, have almost 2k of Neckz’N’Throats fic with matchmaking CEO Laura (and Sterek of course). Happy reading!
Laura loves her job.
She’s one of the youngest CEO’s in the country, possibly even the whole world. She runs one of the most successful werewolf magazine - and yes, some might call Neckz’N’Throats a skin mag, but it really is so much more than that and Laura has worked tirelessly to get it recognised as a respectable piece of journalism. Sure, the name still says it all - they show a lot of necks and throats, tastefully photographed to the maximum enjoyment of their mostly werewolf audience, but Laura takes pains to ensure that the pages of her magazine are not filled with blank faces and dead eyes. Her models are paid adequately, with all the insurances and securities necessary, and if there’s even the slightest hint that someone is not there just because they enjoy being photographed, Laura steps in and tries to figure out an arrangement that’s beneficial to both parties. It has worked well enough so far and has given her a reputation of being a fair and respectful employer that she’s proud of and strives to keep up.
Neckz’N’Throats did start out with just what it says on the tin: vulnerable necks and throats on display, meant to titillate and excite, but Laura has dared to branch out from that. She has introduced models from all kinds of backgrounds, aiming for diversity in all aspects, be it size, colour, or species. Then she started shooting couples - mated ones tend to be more popular, that special connection even shining through the glossy pages of a spread. Her most popular pair so far are Lydia Martin and Jackson Whittemore. Lydia started shooting for Neckz’N’Throats first, her lily white neck ticking every box on most hot blooded werewolves.
Not that Laura would know, being ace has both its advantages and disadvantages when heading a skin mag. On the one hand she still doesn’t quite get what “sexy” is even supposed to mean though she’s fared well enough in that respect by hiring models because of aesthetics and charisma - and employing actual hot blooded werewolves to advise her. On the other hand she is never ever tempted to leer at her employees creepily - and sadly enough that still seems to be a stand alone feature in her profession.
I know that Halloween is over, but I’ve waist my time on this crappy gif, so I’m posting it. I’ve never tried making pixel gifs before so that was quite an interesting experience of mine… Yet I’m not really satisfied with the result…meh
Omg i'm so happy!! So how about scenario of Aomine meet his ex gf somewhere, when he approaches her Ushijima come and put his hand on her fat tummy? (She's pregnant with Ushi's child!!) Thanks
YAY this is my first crossover omg i hope you like it! (▰˘◡˘▰)
it hurt my heart and soul to make my baby suffer but i had to
It’s been a year since Aomine have seen you. He missed you. Quite a lot in fact, but the two of you are over now, and though he knows it, it didn’t make him miss you any less.
He really doesn’t know what actually went wrong between the two of you, all he remembers is that call he got from you.
“Aomine, I’m sorry but we’re over. I don’t love you anymore. Goodbye.”
Those were the last words he ever heard from you, and the last time he’ve ever heard of you. He didn’t know where you went or what you were doing, you just disappeared.
Or so he thought.
He was on his way to meet some friends when he saw you.
After an entire year, you finally showed up. You were sitting on a park bench, alone.
Though he was standing a little far, he still saw how beautiful you looked. You looked even more beautiful than he remembered. He didn’t know why or how but it was like you were glowing.
You looked really well. He can see that you’ve been eating well, and taking good care of yourself. His heart felt at ease upon that.
Of course he was worried about you all this time, even though you made it clear to him you don’t love him anymore. He couldn’t help it.
Sure, the two of you ended, but he couldn’t forget all the times you had so easily. You were his everything once, how can he forget?
He was just about to approach you and say something when he halted.
You suddenly stood up and waved at someone, but it wasn’t at him. You were smiling. You looked really happy to see this person, your eyes lit up the minute you saw him, and it was none other than Ushijima.
Ushijima hugged you, and then he knelt down. He started caressing your stomach and talking to it, as if a baby was in there, and there was.
You were pregnant.
You laughed, and put your hands through Ushijima’s hair. You played with it while he talked to the baby inside you. Yours and Ushijima’s baby.
Aomine didn’t feel like saying something anymore, nor did he feel like meeting anyone anymore so he head home.
What he felt right now was unfathomable. The person who he was once so happy with, the person who he once loved so much, the person who he once imagined an entire future with, is now everything but his.
Though he wouldn’t admit it, he actually was hoping you’d come back to him. That somehow the two of you would find your way back to each other, but he was wrong.
You looked a lot happier now than when you ever did with him, and it pained him.
Of course you’d choose Ushijima over him, he was nicer, he was more mature, and he was better at showing just how much he truly loves you.
Unlike him. Even though he loved you, he never really was the best at showing it, and it finally came back to bite him.
“People fall out of the world sometimes, but they always leave traces. Little things we can’t quite account for. Faces in photographs. Luggage. Half-eaten meals. Rings. Nothing is ever forgotten—not completely. And if something can be remembered, it can come back.”
This is a really REALLY late birthday gift for my dear friend @hereforbiclara — I’m sorry this took forever, but I hope you like it :)
