@sleepingupsidedown <- I blame you for this one
-First off let’s get one thing straight Pidge doesn’t drink because A. Underage and B. Doesn’t like the taste of alcohol so they are the DP (designated pilot)
-Hunk has the best alcohol tolerance and barely ever gets drunk but when he does the kindness skyrockets as if that’s even possible, more hugs, compliments, and he lets everyone know that Lance is his best friend/ brother, and the paladins are also his family but he and Lance are hella tight
-When Shiro gets drunk he becomes a stuttering mess who tries and fails to flirt with Allura, but no worries because he never remembers it in the morning, and he doesn’t really get that terrible of a hangover
-Allura is magnificent in many things but being able to tolerate alcohol is not one of them. She is known as the lightweight™, and she relaxes more and just has a good time with the fam
-Coran is just a mess, he can’t do proper English or any language for that matter (it’s also how the team learned that Coran speaks and reads about 25 different languages fluently and can speak another 5 but it’s slightly more broken and he’s working on it) but he also sobers up really quickly
-Lance and Keith are a different story altogether, it’s like they switch personalities while they’re drunk
-Keith becomes really outgoing, uses wonderful one liners that almost gets him layed many times(but he always says he can’t but thanks the people for offering) how the world may never know, he also becomes a shit post generator. So really when you think about it Keith has 3 levels of drunk and he never remembers anything in the morning
-Lance however gets hit hard by his homesickness, he stops making jokes, he wanders to the edge of the group, starts making excuses to leave in his head, and smiles falsely, hides his hurt whenever he sees Keith flirting with someone and succeeding, because he wishes he were in those alien’s position
-Lance is never able to forget those nights, and each time he grabs a drink he promises he won’t become introverted and every time he succeeds at first until he spots Keith with someone else then it’s game over
-One night while they’re at a neutral trade planet and everyone is enjoying themselves especially Pidge because the others are oh so amusing
-Allura is the first one to go down and starts to laugh openly more and more
-It keeps progressing until everyone but Pidge is drunk, and suddenly Keith suggest they start a game
-Whoever gets the no nonsense bartender to exchange numbers, names, and a promise to talk, will receive whatever they wish from one of the players
-Pidge is immediately determined the judge, and the game begins
-Coran goes first and all he receives is the bartender asking if he wants a shuttle called for him which offends Coran, so he walks away back to the table and claims he is din (read as done)
-Allura goes next and while she’s relaxed and happy, she and the bartender just don’t really click, they would defend one another and not insult the other because girls from every planet should have each other’s back, but that doesn’t mean you really need to be friends so Allura thanks her for her time
-When it’s Shiro’s turn, he’s doing really well until he takes one look at Allura and causing him to apologize to the bartender and telling her his heart belongs to another and he didn’t mean to lead her on
-Shiro decides that he WILL tell Allura about his feelings tomorrow, and writes it down (he does remember, and Allura gives him a dazzling smile and tells him she would love to be in a relationship with him)
-It’s Hunks turn but when he’s on his way to the bartender he gets distracted by this other girl and he just starts complimenting her make up because that obviously took time and girl the winged eyeliner is on point
-And then the girl and Hunk spend time discussing how she applied everything giving him tips Hunk prepared a shopping list in his brain because he’s down to try make up because damn that eyeliner tho
-With Hunk basically dropping out it’s up to Keith and Lance, Keith goes first
-Keith starts off by making jokes and flirting with the bartender which immediately obliterates any chance he had at winning, knowing when to cut his losses he returns to the group
-Lance had seen Keith flirting with the bartender and he found he could no longer hold the fake smile and he stopped making commentary about the game and just sat back dreading walking up to the stranger for the game, he considers dropping out but he doesn’t want to draw attention to himself
-Lance then goes up to her, and the first thing he does is apologize to the poor bartender for all the shenanigans
-And he’s sorry he will be wasting her time and then the next thing he knows is telling he everything, from his homesickness to his feelings for the man who never remembered his name, and how even though he know he has everyone he can’t help but feel alone at times, like he has no one to talk to
-By the time he realized what he’s done he starts apologizing to the bartender surprised to find her smiling at him
-She then proceeds to tell him that it’s okay, her favorite part of her job is to hear people’s stories
-She let’s him know her name is Mel, she asks to exchange numbers because he is not alone, she will be there for him and beside she wants to her updates about the group’s antics and his possible relationship with Keith
-Next thing Lance knows he has a new friend/confidant and he has won the silly game
-So he puts on his fake smile and announces he won, receiving cheers from his friends
-Lance finds it to be too much and excuses himself to go to the bathroom, once he is washing his hands Keith walks in and claims that he always knew Lance was going to win the game
-He had felt it in his bones because who wouldn’t like Lance, Keith then claimed he tried, but ended up falling for Lance
-Lance is too shocked to react and Keith just casually walks out as if what he said was casual and normal
-When they ask Lance what he wants since he won the challenge he looks panicked for a second, which prompts Pidge to jump in and tell the group they should wait for tomorrow when they’re all sober, that way Lance can make a sound decision
The next day
-Somehow Lance manages to wake up before everyone else, only to find Pidge tinkering away with their computer
-Pidge straight up attacks Lance with questions about what happened last night
-Because Lance knows he owes Pidge for saving him yesterday he told them about Mel and then the confession from Keith if you even call it that especially since Keith becomes a big flirt with everyone and maybe he didn’t mean the falling for someone in the same way as others seeing as he doesn’t usually get things that aren’t literal
-Pidge slaps Lance in the face
-Tells him how the pinning has been going on for months and Keith never said anything because he felt guilty for not being able to remember Lance
-And how sure Keith flirted but he never went through with it and it was mostly just harmless, so go get your man™
-Later when Lance finally feels confident enough to talk to Keith about it he goes looking for Keith
-Once he finds Keith, Lance wonders if he should tell Keith and Keith asks him if he knows what his price will be for winning the game (Pidge told Keith about the game and NOTHING ELSE because that’s up to Lance)
- So Lance then decides what he’s going to do
-He asks Keith if he meant it, did he mean it when he told Lance he’d fallen for him and if by the he meant romantically
-Keith gets so red and flustered but he unmistakably says yes how could I not fall for you
-Lance then grabs Keith and starts kissing him only to stop when they hear the others cheering
P.S. Mel totally sent an audio message of her squealing when Lance told her
I struggled with who could be the immigrant hero for a second, and then went, “Duh, obvious choice.” So, yet ANOTHER first. Kind of a total disaster that colours sort of saved because it says “writing pens” on the box so it’s totally ink.
You walked down the stairs, a delicious smell instantly coming to your senses.
The smell led you to the kitchen, where there was a beautiful breakfast made.
Sitting beside the counter was Jin. He was eating while doing something on his phone.
Was he still mad at you?
“Good morning, Jin-oppa.” You spoke, mentally cringing. You remembered that one day last week, Jin told you that in Korea, girls call their older brother oppa. You didn’t really want to call him that, but you thought that in this situation, it would make him less mad (if he was still mad at you).
He looked up at you while chewing his food. “Morning.” He spoke, mouth half full. “There’s your plate.” He pointed to a plate of pancakes and bacon that was beside him.
“Thanks.” You said, sitting next to him so you could eat. Sitting next to him now felt awkward, so you decided to make small talk.
“Did Ji-yeon make this?” You asked.
Jin shook his head before swallowing the food that was in his mouth and speaking. “I made it.”
“Really? Well, it tastes really good.” You slightly smiled, complimenting him.
Jin hummed in response before continuing to eat.
The room was quiet, once again.
“Did they go to work? Dad and Ji-yeon?” You ask, trying to fight the silence.
Jin nodded. You thought he wouldn’t say anything after that, so you gave up on trying to make a conversation. But Jin did speak.
“Don’t worry. I didn’t tell them about what happened at the party.” He says, not making eye contact with you and just eating his food.
“Thanks.” You say. “Yeah. I mean, telling them would’ve been the right thing to do, but I didn’t. I’m sure they’d love to know about how you got drunk and grinded on some boy you just met.” He spoke, like it was no big deal.
Wow, Jin is really good at throwing shade, but you didn’t like that it was directed towards you.
The memories of the night of the party made you upset. You looked at your brother. “I don’t like it when you’re mad at me.”
“And I don’t like it when you do stupid things.” He says.
“Well, that’s what having siblings is like, right? They get mad at you for doing something stupid, but it’s fine because they’re your siblings and you love them anyways, right?” You spoke with hope, hoping that Jin would magically stop being mad at you.
Without saying a word, Jin stood up and placed his empty dish in the sink. He was about to walk away and you started talking.
“I’m sorry. I really don’t want you to be mad at me, Jin.” You spoke.
He kept walking until you spoke once again.
“I messed up badly, I know. And now you hate me. I disappointed the brother that I’ve only known for two weeks.” You sighed.
Jin stopped in his tracks and turned around.
“Hey, don’t say that.” He said. His eyes softened once he saw tears streaming down your face. “I don’t hate you. I could never hate you, y/n. You’re my sister.”
“Stop saying cliche stuff.” You told him, wiping your tears away, even though they kept coming.
“I don’t hate you, y/n. Yes, you messed up, but I don’t hate you. Yes, I’m mad at you, but I don’t hate you.” He tells you.
“Are you sure? By the way you were yelling at me yesterday, it really doesn’t seem like you like me.” You stood up, putting your dish in the sink.
“Yes, I’m sure. I only yelled at you because I was worried. Do you know what could’ve happen if that picture leaked? If people found out that you’re my sister, my imagine would be ruined. The boy’s images would be ruined.” He says.
You rolled your eyes before wiping the tears away once again. “So you only care about your image?” You asked him. “Do you even want people to find out that I’m your sister? Do you even want me to be your sister? Or are you too ashamed of me?”
“I never said that.” He answers. “Answer the question.” You say, looking up at him.
“If you’re just going to act like this, then why would I want people to know that you’re my sister? Why would I want you to be my sister?” He asks. After the words left his mouth, his eyes widened. He looked like he regretted everything he just said, but you didn’t care. The damage was done. “Oh my gosh. I didn't—” he started, but you spoke over him.
“You’re right. Your image could be ruined because of me. Maybe I shouldn’t be here anymore. Maybe I should just go back home.” You say, looking down at your feet, not wanting to look him in the eyes. “Maybe it’s best that people don’t find out that I’m your sister. You wouldn’t want your image to be ruined, right?”
“Y/n,” Jin sighed. You didn’t give him a chance to speak before rushing upstairs to your room and locking the door.
You laid on your bed, crying into a pillow.
What were you supposed to do now? Pack up and go home?
As much as you felt like you needed to get away, in this moment, you couldn’t bring yourself to get up and pack your bags. You didn’t want to. How were you going to let this one mistake ruin something that you’ve been waiting for your whole life?
After about 10 minutes, you heard soft knocks on your door. “Y/n.” Jin called you. “Open the door.”
You sat up, but you didn’t go to open the door. “Leave me alone.”
“Y/n, please. We need to have a talk. A brother-sister talk.” He says.
You just sat there, not getting up. “It’s obvious that you don’t want me as a sister, so what’s the point?” You clutched onto the pillow that was in your arms.
“Y/n, I didn’t mean to say that. You know that I didn’t mean to say that.” He spoke. “I don’t know anything.” You say.
You heard him take a deep breath. “Y/n, open the door. Please.”
You sighed and stood up, finally opening the door before returning to your seat on the bed. You looked down at the carpeted floor, not wanting to look at him.
He entered the room and closed your door, sitting beside you.
“I’m sorry.” He said almost immediately as he sat down. “I didn’t mean to say that. I didn’t mean it at all. I really do want you as my sister y/n. I love the fact that you’re my sister. I love you.”
You froze at his words. You felt your eyes getting watery again, so you pressed the pillow against your face, not wanting him to see you.
Jin chuckled at your actions, putting his hand on your back. “Yes, you messed up, but I love you. You’re my sister and I love you. If those pictures did leak, I wouldn’t hate you. I could never hate you. Yes, I would be really mad, but I wouldn’t hate you.”
He suddenly removed the pillow from your face, tossing it on the bed and hugging you.
You rested your head on his chest, wiping your tears.
“I should’ve never yelled at you before. I shouldn’t have made you feel like I hate you, because I don’t.” He tells you.
“I’m sorry for being such an idiot. It wasn’t Jungkook’s fault. I know he was supposed to be watching me, but I told him that I’d be fine. It’s my fault, not his.” You say.
“I don’t care who’s fault it is. I just don’t want this to happen again, okay?” He asked.
“Okay.” You nodded, looking at him. “So you’re not mad at me anymore, right?”
“No.” He shook his head.
“Good because I really want to go to the mall, but I need someone to drive me.” You smile.
Jin playfully rolled his eyes, removing his arms from around you and standing up.
“Well, we’re having a brother-sister day, so you can’t go ditch me with Jungkook again.” Jin laughed as you two entered the same store that you went into the first time you came to the mall.
As soon as the words left Jin’s mouth, someone spoke. “Hyung!” Someone called. You both turned around to the direction of the voice to see Jimin, Taehyung and Jungkook.
They were in the same store as you guys.
“What are you guys doing here?” Jin asked as the boys walked up to you.
“What does it look like? We’re shopping, duh.” Taehyung speaks, earning a hit on the arm from Jin. “Ouch.” He says, rubbing his arm.
“Since you’re here,” Jin starts, looking at Jungkook. “Don’t ditch me with my sister again, okay.”
“I can’t make any promise.” Jungkook says, smiling at you. You shyly smiled back, not knowing why you felt something funny in your stomach when he smiled at you.
Jin shook his head and chuckled.
“Ah, y/n. Starbucks has this really cool drink that we should try.” Jungkook tells you. “Then we should go get it.” You responded, looking at Jin to make sure you had permission.
Jin nodded and smiled and with that, you and Jungkook were off to Starbucks.
Two security guards followed you once again.
You two got to Starbucks and got your drinks before leaving and walking around the mall.
“So you and Jin made up?” He asked as you sipped your drink. “Yep. I swear I will never get that drunk ever again.” You tell him.
He nods before sipping his drink. “About that night at the party,” Jungkook stopped walking and you stopped and looked at him.
“What? Did something else happen?” You asked.
“Well,” he starts. “when you were drunk, like really drunk, you kind of—” He was cut off by someone calling his name.
“Jungkook!” It sounded like a teenage girl.
Turning your head to look at where the sound was coming from, you saw tons of fans coming at you guys.
A security guard pulled you and Jungkook away while another security guard tried to hold back the crowd.
“Does this happen every single time you guys come here?” You asked while the security guard led you two somewhere else.
“Yeah.” Jungkook shrugged.
What was it that he was going to tell you? Was it something embarrassing? You’d hate to find out another stupid thing that you did while you were drunk.
“Jungkook!” A girl yelled. Her yell seemed closer than the other ones. You turned to look at the source of the voice, but you were suddenly pushed away.
You tripped, luckily, you didn’t fall. You looked to see that a fan had escaped the crowd and rushed to Jungkook. On the way to him, she pushed you out of the way.
“Y/n!” Jungkook says, grabbing your hand as security guards got the girl away from the two of you.
You heard screams and cameras flashing constantly. You still wondered how these boys dealt with it.
“Are you okay?” Jungkook asks you. You nodded. “I’m fine.”
He intertwined his fingers with yours as you walked back to he store that the boys were in.
Once you got there, the security guards stood in front and you two walked in, almost immediately finding Taehyung.
“Oh my gosh, that looks so good.” The boy says, looking at the drinks you and Jungkook held.
“Jungkook let me try it.” Taehyung says. Jungkook gave him his drink and Taehyung sipped the drink before walking away with it.
“Tae!” Jungkook groaned. Taehyung walked down one of the aisles of the store and Jungkook just let him go.
You looked at Jungkook and laughed. “Ha. Ha. Very funny.” He says before taking your drink out of your hand and drinking it.
“Jungkook!” You whined. “Now you know how it feels.” He said.
You tried to take your drink away from him, but he held it up high so you couldn’t reach it. So, you just gave up trying and watched as he sipped your drink.
You started walking through the store, dragging Jungkook along. “What was it that you needed to tell me before?” You asked him as you looked at a cute shirt.
“It—uh—it was nothing. Forget it.” Jungkook stutters. You knew he was lying. “Stop lying. What were you going to tell me?” You looked at him.
“I-I was going to tell you that when we were in my car going to the hotel, you started singing really loudly and it was kind of annoying.” He speaks.
“Oh,” you giggled. “I’m sorry. Did anything else happen?”
“Hyung!” Jungkook calls, looking in a different direction and ignoring your question.
You looked to see Jimin and Jin walking up to you.
As Jin approached the two of you, he looked down and saw that your fingers were intertwined. Jin raised and eyebrow at this cleared his throat. You pulled your hand away from Jungkook’s once you saw how Jin was reacting.
“Do you want anything?” Jin asks you. You gave him the shirt that you had previously been looking at. “That’s it?” He asked and you nodded.
Jin left to go pay for your shirt and everything that he was buying, leaving you alone with Jungkook and Jimin.
“Jungkook, did you tell her? Is that why you two were holding hands? Aww that’s so—” Jimin what cut off by Jungkook hitting him in the stomach.
You raised an eyebrow, confused.
“Ah, so he didn’t tell you?” Jimin chuckled.
“Tell me what?”
“Nothing. Don’t listen to him y/n.” Jungkook tells you. “Jungkookie, why are you such a coward? Just tell her. It’s not like it didn’t happen.” Jimin tells his friend.
“Jimin-hyung, leave me alone.” Jungkook groans and Jimin just laughs.
“What does he mean?” You asked, looking up at Jungkook. “It’s nothing, y/n.”
“Jungkook, you’re going to have to tell her eventually.” Jimin smiles.
“Jimin—” Jungkook starts.
“Y/n, when you were drunk, you kissed Jungkook.” Jimin admits. “See? It wasn’t hard to say at all.” He says to his friend.
Your eyes widened. “I did what?” You say, turning back to Jungkook. “Y/n,” he starts.
“Why didn’t you tell me earlier? Oh my gosh.” You ran your fingers through your hair.
You were so embarrassed! How could you kiss Jungkook while you were drunk?
“I was going to tell you, I just—” he says, but you cut him of. “Forget it. Don’t worry about it, okay? I’m sorry.” You apologized.
“You don’t have to—” he started once again. “I-I’m gonna g-go find Jin.” You stuttered, embarrassed.
You walked away from the two boys and waited outside of the checkout line for Jin to finish.
“Hey, why do you look like you’ve just seen a ghost?” Jin chuckles as he walked up to you. “Do I?” You giggled awkwardly. “I just don’t feel good. Maybe we should leave.”
“Don’t you want to say goodbye to the boys first?” Jin asks you.
Say goodbye to them? You didn’t even want to talk to Jungkook right now. How could you embarrass yourself like that?
“No, it’s okay. I’m sure I’ll see them soon anyways.” You tell him.
Jin shrugged and you two left the store.
All you could think about on the way home is the fact that you kissed Jungkook.
It was your fault. You were drunk. It didn’t mean anything, did it?
Did you like Jungkook?
“Oh my gosh.” You said to yourself.
“What is it? Are you okay?” Jin asks, looking at you for a few seconds before looking back at the road.
“I just—I think—” You stuttered. You didn’t know what to say. “I just need to get home. I have a really bad headache.” You lied.
