Prologue: Letters from a Longtime Friend ♡
“Here mom, I got the mail!” “Thanks, can you put them on the table?” “Okay! I’m going to go to the park with dad!” “Okay, make sure you two don’t get lost on the way there~”
You looked the pile of mail and noticed the tinted blue letter on the bottom. You reached for it and pulled it out to only be greeted with the same handwriting you noticed from the past.
‘Oh, it’s been a while.’
You were 16 when you saw him, you were looking out the window that specific morning and noticed him getting caught by the dean who always made the late kids run around the track. He was running beautifully, with his perfect form and use of legs to put a decent distance between him and the other kids. Before long, he was already done with his run and bowed to the dean before heading to class. “Hello Mr. Ong, it’s nice to know you made it to the first day of class.” Teacher Lee stated as he motioned the bowing Seongwoo to his seat, which was next to yours. “Sorry, I had to bring my niece to her daycare.” “Yes yes, now please open up your textbook.” He leaned over to you, “I’m sorry, can we share your book…I forgot mine.”
You blushed at the sudden eye contact, his eyes seemed like the stars were residing in them when it wasn’t night time, and nodded, “Sure, we’re right here.” You pointed to the middle of the page. He flashed you a grin, “Thanks.”
“Hey Seongwoo, that’s my seat.” You shook the sleeping boy as he opened his eyes, rubbing them and yawning in the process. “Oh- my bad, I was looking out the window and I must have knocked out.” You laughed a little before giving him a water bottle, taking the seat in front of him. Jaehwan won’t mind if he doesn’t know. “Thanks,” he opened the water bottle and continued to look out the window, “So this is where you saw me huh?” He glanced at you. “W-what how did you know?” You managed to stutter before grabbing the water bottle from his hand and drink from it. “I saw you.” He laughed. “You kept staring at me while I run, I thought you were a stalker.”
You punched him, “I’m far from a stalker Ong, I’m your best friend.” You rolled your eyes and looked out the same window. It was silent for a while, until “We just had an indirect kiss y/n.” He snickered as you turned red.
A couple days later it was sports day and Seongwoo was participating on the 100-meter dash and the 200-meter dash. Of course, it was class against class, Mr. Lee’s class were colored blue while the Ms. Park’s were colored red. “Go blue! Go! Go, Ong! Go!” Daniel, who was also participating, pouted and said, “Hey, y/n cheer for me also!” “But you’re not in my team Daniel!”
Jisung, who heard the exchange, yelled, “Yah! Kang Daniel! Want me to cheer you on!” and began cheerleading pulling Sungwoon with him, who happily showed off his moves. “Ew! No, thank you!”
They were interrupted when the teacher said to get in position. When they fired the gun, everyone was cheering. Daniel and Seongwoo were head to head. You were hoping for Seongwoo, but Daniel outran him and won the race. The red team was cheering, while the blue team was crying in defeat. You went to Seongwoo and laid down next to him. “Don’t worry Ong Seongwoo, there’s still one more race.” “There’s no use in living anymore.” Seongwoo was extremely competitive. Especially around Daniel. They would always compete on test scores, ranking, and athletic abilities. But they were still best friends. Daniel came up to you guys and started rolling on you guys. “Yah! Kang Daniel! Stop It! You’re heavy!” Seongwoo got up and said, “Kang Daniel! It was a good match, but I bet you won’t outrun me in the next race!” and then ran away. “Yeah right!” and started to run after him. You yelled, “Yah! Wait for me, Ong Seongwoo! Kang Daniel!”
“Class! As many of you know, we have final exams soon, please make sure to get a good score and help set my reputation as the best teacher on this campus.” “But Teacher Lee, Ms. Park’s class had the better exam scores last year!” Jaehwan shouted. “Yes! That’s why we must beat her class!! Now study or you’re going to miss the fun of the summer!” The whole class groaned, “Boooooo!!!” “Hey y/n, let’s have a study group!” “Okay! Let’s invite Jaehwan as well~” “No- wait let’s just study together.” Seongwoo quickly grabbed your hand which was about to poke Jaehwan in front of you. Jaehwan turned back anyways, “Okay y/n~ Let’s study~” You laughed as Jaehwan smirked at Seongwoo’s glare.
Your class was able to get the better percentage this year, resulting to Mr. Lee cheering and treating everyone to dinner including Ms. Park’s class. “y/n! Come sit with us!” Minhyun patted the seat between him and Seongwoo. “Okay.” You sat down and smiled at Daniel who was seated across from you. “Guys, I think Mr. Lee likes Ms. Park,” JIsung whispered towards the group as he stacked meat onto your bowl. “Yea it’s pretty obvious Jisung.” Minhyun chuckled as he placed veggies on your plate. “Guys- I think you’re putting too much food for y/n,” Daniel stated as he took one of your meat, which Jisung glared but gave Daniel more meat. “Nah, y/n eats a lot. Like the yesterday we went to eat udon and she finished 3-” You slapped you hand over his mouth. “Ong Seongwoo, what were you going to say?” You eyed him, as he shook his head ‘nothing, I was going to say nothing.’
You let go of your hand.
“SHE FINISHED 3 X-LARGE BOWLS OF UDON.” “ONG SEONGWOO!!!!!”
The last days of high school were approaching, and Ong Seongwoo dropped the fact that he was going aboard. “Thanks for leaving me, idiot.” You always made sure to say that every single day until he goes. “Whatever stupid.” Was always his reply.
The group of friends decided to celebrate one last time before Seongwoo leaves, thus having a party at a barbeque place. “To Seongwoo! For his better life and education in Europe!” Sungwoon toasted as he lifted his glass of cola. “To Seongwoo!” Everyone else lifted their cups of beverages. The party was going well, with chit chats everywhere and laughter at stories and recalled memories. Until you felt someone hugging you, blushing at the sudden contact, “D-daniel? Are you okay? What happened?” His face was flushed as he looked sleepy.
“Who gave him alcohol??” “Oh, I forgot to mention his drink contained 48% alcohol-” “Oh… y/n… you look so beautiful today…” He was drifting to sleep, but not before you heard him whimper, “…i like you y/n.” Seongwoo and you exchanged glances before Seongwoo got him off and put Daniel in the corner to sleep in peace.
It wasn’t until the day finally came when you were at the airport crying your eyes out, “t-thank for l-leaving me….eeee IDIOT.” He sighed before pulling you into a hug, “Stupid, I’ll make sure to send you lots of postcards and letters. Now stop crying or else I’m going to cry too.” He dabbed his eye, “and I don’t want to look like an ugly mess when I step out of the airport of England.” He pulled out of the hug and started to walk towards the door for passengers.
‘It’s now or never. Go. You can do this y/n. This chance won’t come again.’
“Seongwoo…” He turned around and you looked into his eyes, how is it possible that those eyes can hold stars, it’s like looking into the night sky. “I like you.” You saw his eyes widen before they drop into a pained look, “…..I’m sorry y/n…” He walked towards you and gives you one last hug. “I have to go.” He whispers and kisses your forehead as he walked away.
The first postcard came after a week since he’s been gone. It was a beautiful picture of the clock tower and on the back : “Hey y/n! It’s really cool here!!”
The second one came a month after. It was a small letter with a polaroid of him posing in front of the Eiffel tower. “Woooahhh, the tower is huge!”
The tinted colored letters and beautiful postcards kept coming, at least 15 per year. How does he get the money- It was safe to say you had a box full of his mail, pictures, and gifts.
You were 22 when you got the letter that made you stay in your room for 3 days until Daniel convinced you to get out and come with him to a cat cafe. While you were getting ready, Daniel noticed the letter on your kitchen table and read it. Frowning as he looked at the pic of Seongwoo holding hands with another girl. “Y/n, I think I found the love of my life.”
After that letter, you got less and less mail from Seongwoo. It just decreased year after year.
You were 24 when Daniel decided to step up his game and finally gather the guts to confess to you. You rejected him and told him that you were still in love with Seongwoo, but Daniel insisted that he will wait. As time progressed, you realized Daniel was always there for you and he made you happy when you were saddened, he became your pillar and you began to slowly fall for him.
When you were 27, Daniel proposed. You said yes because hell you were in love with him now. He was perfect. You should have had a camera to take the pictures of his smile that night. Oh hey, you have a phone!!! That night you and Daniel agreed to send Seongwoo the news. Thus you guys took a picture of you and Daniel holding hands and smiling while Daniel kisses your left hand and later printed it out and wrote on the back. “We’re getting married.”
Back to the present! You’re now 32 years old with a 4-year-old who’s currently at the park with Daniel, mostly going to bring you back a melted ice cream cone. You giggle as you already know the conversation between them.
“Daddy! Hurry! Mommy’s ice cream is melting!” “AHH! Okay! Let’s go go go!” and they would try to run home.
You looked back at the letter and slowly opened it.
“Hello y/n, it’s been a while. How are you and Daniel doing? I hope your family is doing fine. I’m sorry for not writing for 5 years, I just couldn’t bring myself to write you something to congratulate your wedding. But I did send you guys wrist watches from Europe! Anyway, I want to mention that the point of this letter is because this would be the last I will send to you. I want to thank you, our friendship will forever be a part of my life and I appreciate every moment we spent together. The times we had together made me super happy and I will treasure those moments with my life. Since this would be the last letter, I’m guessing you would want some answers. When we were at the airport when you confessed to me. I never really got to answer, but I also loved you back then. I just wasn’t able to confess to you even at the end. During my time in Europe, you were always on my mind. I would send you anything that reminds me of you. And I met her when I was looking at the hats to give to you. I don’t how to explain, but she was just the one for me. I’m sorry. I wish you and Daniel will forever be happy, I wish your family will continue to blossom, and I wish this letter won’t bring you tears, rather I hope this letter gives you a push to continue your life with me as a memory of the past.
Your long time friend,
unedited. 2043 words. this one hurt, but hey daniel is here :) thank you for reading! ♡
PRODUCE101 – How the perfect boy group would look like
Only one day left, and I literally can’t wait to know who’s gonna make it into Produce 101 Season 2′s final boy group. However, I know that not all of my favorites will make it. To be honest, I wish they would just debut with 20 members – but that’s not going to happen. But hey… that’s how survival programs work.
Still… a girl can dream, right? That’s why I’m going to show you which 11 trainees of Produce 101 would form the perfect boy group (in my opinion of course).
For me, a member of a boyband has to fulfill his role. However, these days members of boy and girl groups have much more roles to take than just rapper, dancer, vocalist, leader and face.
THE GORGEOUS FACE:
The face is the one that inherits automatically the center position, which leads to acting as the signature member of the group. A perfect example is Sungjae who is (not the visual but) the face of CUBE’s BtoB.
For me there’s only one that would be able to pull this role of, and it is without any doubt MMO’s Kang Daniel. He has the personality, the charisma, the skills, the sex appeal, the body, the stage presence and of course the face to take over the center position. Yeah… it should be illegal to be this perfect.
If you need a detailed explanation why I would love to see him as center (and why I have serious ovary issues), check this out.
THE IDEAL LEADER:
Every bunch of half-crazy boys needs an exemplary leader who is able to keep everything and everyone under control. A popular example would be B1A4′s Jinyoung.
Assigning this role might be the easiest, right? PLEDIS’ Kim Jonghyun proofed so many times that he’s perfectly capable of motivating and guiding others. No one would make a better leader than him – who already has enough leading experience thanks to NU’EST.
Again, if you want to know a detailed explanation, why I love this sexy fella so much, read this.
THE ANGEL VOICE:
A boyband without a main vocalist? No way! Every group needs at least one singer that is able to hit high notes and breaks listeners’ hearts with his voice. One of my favorite main vocalists of all time is for example Block B’s Taeil.
Under the last twenty Produce 101 trainees are two I would love see as main vocalists. But there can only be one – and it breaks my heart to make the decision between Starship’s Jung Sewoon and individual trainee Kim Jaehwan. I’ve tried to be as objective as possible, and chose Jaehwan as my dream main vocalist of my dream Produce 101 boy group.
As much as I like Sewoon’s voice and personality, I can’t deny that I prefer Jaehwan’s skills a little bit more. His range is incredible, and he would make more than just a solid main vocalist.
THE PASSIONATE DANCER:
If I would be in a girl group, I would definitely be at least lead dancer – yes, we are talking about my usual favorite position. However, in this Produce 101 group we need a main dancer that is able to inspire others with his sick moves like SHINee’s Taemin.
My original dancer pick for the Produce 101 boy group has been someone who already got eliminated (Yes, it was Taehyun). So I decided to go with the sweet and extremely talented Kim Samuel from Brave Entertainment.
You can’t deny it: he’s more than just passionate about dancing. He masters choreographies as easy as freestyle. Yes, this kid got the moves! And that’s why he should be able to dance the shit out of this project.
THE ANNOYING MAKNAE:
Sometimes all those hyungs need a precious baby boy to take care of. However, this can be quite nerve-wracking since some of our most popular K-Pop maknaes are from time to time wicked brats. The probably most popular example for an annoying and evil maknae is Jungkook from BTS.
After watching last week’s Produce 101 episode, I’ve finally found my perfect maknae. Even though CUBE’s Yoo Seonho is only eleven days younger than Samuel, he has all the – let’s say – qualities to be Produce 101′s ideal maknae.
On stage he tries to be sexy as fuck, but among his hyungs he acts like the cutest little brat that actually annoys the shit out of everyone. All this skin ship, all this bromance… How can Seonho be such a perfect maknae?
THE FIERCE RAPPER:
Almost every single boyband has its rapper – sometimes even more than just one. There are some extraordinary main rappers that support their group with their insane skills – like iKON’s Bobby.
In Produce 101 Season 2 are many trainees who call themselves rappers. Well, I’ve already mentioned two of them. But my number one should be Brand New Music’s Park Woojin.
Although he took part as a dancer in the position evaluation, he’s still the one I would definitely choose as rapper for this group. His super deep and husky voice combined with his badass expression is what a boy group’s main rapper definitely needs.
THE PRETTY VISUAL:
I’ve already mentioned it before, but the face isn’t automatically the group’s visual. However, Infinite’s L is actually both. No wonder with that face.
When it comes to my favorite visual member, some of you might disagree with my choice. But this is just my personal preference, so deal with it. Anyway, I think there is not a single trainee that is able to keep up with Choi Minki’s visuals.
He looks more like a fairy than an actual human being. Some of the younger K-Pop fans might not know this, but when NU’EST debuted, the community went completely crazy because of Minki’s aka Ren’s feminine look. And you guys cannot imagine how many hilarious memes were created just because of his absolutely unbelievable pretty face. Yes, he is indeed the perfect visual.
THE HANDSOME GENTLEMAN:
Besides all those usual positions I’ve mentioned, there can be other roles for additional members of a boy group. One of my personal favorites is the respective role of the handsome gentleman. Sometimes this gentleman is someone who is actually a little bit older, and looks freaking hot in a suit – like Yunho from TVXQ.
There’s only one candidate of Produce 101 I can think of as the perfect gentleman – and that’s obviously PLEDIS’ extremely good-looking trainee Hwang Minhyun.
The term asshole is not meant to insult anyone – it means this member is just savage as fuck and doesn’t give a shit about anything or anyone while mentioning all the time how perfect he is. I think I just described Super Junior’s Heechul pretty well.
And come on… you already know who I picked. There’s only one trainee that would fit perfectly for this kind of role – and that’s Fantagio’s Ong Seongwoo.
After over a decade of being Hallyu infected, I’ve realized that there are so many boy groups who have a member that appears super bad boy-ish on the outside, but is actually all cotton candy sweet on the inside – like my SF9 bias Zuho.
To complete the PLEDIS family, I obviously chose our sexy bandit Kang Dongho as sweet bad boy – because we all know that he just looks like a wild beast, but is actually the softest and cutest little puppy you’ve ever seen.
I could now tell you why this sexy bad boy is actually the cutest daddy among the Produce 101 trainees. But I already did. Feel free to check it out.
THE DORKY GOOFBALL:
Last but not least, the perfect boy group needs someone who makes everyone laugh. This is usually the member that is – because of his hilarious kind of humor – perfect for variety shows. A wonderful example makes of course ZE:A’s Kwanghee.
And there’s only one that brightens my mood every single time he appears on screen: MMO’s Yoon Jiseong. Some hate him, some love him – I simply adore this honest and emotional human being. However, it is a matter of fact that he is number one pick among your favorite Produce 101 trainees. They want him in the group, I want him in the group. Just deal with it!
Besides being number one pick, he’s the oldest trainee right now. And yes, he should debut to give old bitches like me the opportunity to stop finally creeping on baby idols.
With Kang Daniel, Kim Jonghyun, Kim Jaehwan, Kim Samuel, Yoo Seonho, Park Woojin, Choi Minki, Hwang Minhyun, Ong Seongwoo, Kang Dongho and Yoon Jiseong, Mnet would form the perfect boy group – for me.
Countless of you might think – Where the hell is Daehwi? What did you do to Jinyoung? And why the fuck is Jihoon not on this list?
Please, look at most of Produce 101′s trainees. A cute concept with this group wouldn’t work. There are way too many manly, sexy and older contestants. Although I really really like them – in my opinion, there is no place for someone like Daehwi or Jihoon or any other trainee that looks like grade schoolers.
Maybe I’m a little bit biased because I’m way older than any of these guys. Yeah, it kinda sucks to be in this community for so long. Idols get younger, and the groups you – let’s say – grew up with, start to disband one after another. That’s not a joke. I’ve experienced Music Bank live once. And the only girlband I’ve seen there that hasn’t disbanded yet is SNSD.
So yes… I want these eleven boys to debut together. BUT IT WON’T HAPPEN! Because the majority of votes comes from teens who prefer a cute and pretty image over fucking sex appeal and charisma. And that’s okay! You can’t make it right for every single one out there.
I just want to let you guys know that I am really looking forward to this future boy group – although there won’t be all of my favorites. And I can’t wait to watch tomorrow’s final episode.
Prepare some tissues, ladies! We are going to cry rivers!
Jake loves Rich's lisp and Rich is like "WTF you actually like this it is literally my biggest insecurity" and Jake's like "It's hot as fuck dude" and Rich's heart melts because he has been blessed with the perfect man
YES i talk about this all the time!! after rich’s squip goes away his lisp becomes a lot more obvious and jake just absolutely falls in love with it. rich tries to hide it for a while but jake eventually just tells him “rich. you dont have to hide your lisp. i love it, please dont change anything. honestly its really hot to me” and rich just c r i e s hes a happy boy
*Requested* Imagine Kai having weird feelings he doesn’t understand around you, his best friend, and having to go to your brothers, Stefan and Damon, to learn what it means (that he’s fallen in love with you).
( Wow there´s a lot of dialogue in this one, but that´s good right? :D I do hope you enjoy this one and I would love to know what you think. Now happy reading my lovelies!)
It´s a lovely and warm day in Mystic Falls as Kai strolls along the driveway of the Boarding house, humming the theme song of his beloved TV series Baywatch. He stops at the door and uses the doorknocker to let the Salvatore´s know he´s here. The door opens a few seconds later, revealing an surprised yet annoyed Damon.
Damon: “Oh no.”
He rolls his eyes and closes the door but Kai stops it casually with the classic foot in the door.
Damon: “What do you want? Y/N is not here.”
Kai: “I know. I’m not here for Y/N.”
Suddenly Stefan appears and looks over Damon’s shoulder equally annoyed.
Stefan: “What the hell does he want?”
Damon: “I have no idea.”
Kai: “If you two would let me in I could explain.”
Damon looks over to Stefan who just shrugs before he hesitantly opens the door to let Kai in, who casually walks into the living room. He throws himself on the couch, resting his feet on the expensive table before him.
AU: Sebastian abducts Clary in order to rattle the shadowhunters and takes her to one of his secret houses. However, the more time she spends with him, the more she realizes how very alike they actually are.. And somehow he makes her heart sing in the worst way, willing her to just give in. Give in to him, and to this, and to everything they could be, because they’re the last Morgenstern and they belong to each other. And for the first time in her life, Clary feels free and light and powerful - thanks to him. And she loves it, no matter how much her better judgment tells her otherwise. Maybe it’s time for her to get rid of the guilt, the doubt and the shame and embrace the ruthlessness in her bones. Maybe it’s time for her to finally be free of all her previous prejudices and just be herself - a sister, a lover, a ruler, a fighter - anything she wants to be. Because she is, after all, a Morgenstern.
Just curious..how is it misogyny? As far as I'm aware, Niall stans never disliked any of the girls for being women? I've never seen anything misogynistic from them. Like it's not because they were girls that people didn't like them, so how is that akin to misogyny - like say in the way that L*rries hate any WOMAN connected to their ship simply for a woman in the way? Again, just curious!
Anon, I don’t know where you got your notion of misogyny, but it’s a lot more complicated than just “disliking girls for being girls.”
And now prejudice, because knowledge never hurt anyone (but quite the opposite:)
Regarding women, prejudice presents itself under a lot of different shapes. Double standards, holding women to impossible standards (created by men,) hurtful stereotypes (again, created by men,) and even simply expecting the worst from them. That’s the Lady MacBeth I referred to in a previous ask about the matter, which is, wait for it… yes, a male construction.
How does this work in the context of an entertainment fandom such as 1D’s or Niall’s, mainly composed by women? The situation becomes even more appalling, because it’s women throwing all these prejudices upon other women (they don’t even know,) sometimes even not being aware of it, and hurting themselves in the process.
Of course you have groups like tinhatters that literally come up with proper conspiracy theories to be able to rationalize their hate. But you also have people that go out and look for receipts to be able to sanction that a man (a man that you know,if it’s not a minor, is a in privileged position to look after himself) should be “protected” from the said woman. Do you see the Niall fandom doing this “research” (that would probably lead to a witch hunt, yes) when Niall is pictured with a random male? It might happen to a certain degree because curiosity is a thing, but it’s not the “we gotta find something on this one” mindset we see when the company is a woman. If we read between the lines we get: 1) Woman = danger, 2) SHE’s got to have some dirty laundry. So sometimes stans find nothing and just have to vague tag their contempt, but when they think they are onto something, like it happened with Melissa, they’ll hold on to that like a burning nail til the end of Times. Because Melissa is long gone, but in fandom it’s as if a single minute had happened.
Women have been used as a weapon against the men associated with them (read this great article about Briana’s alleged sex-tape.) Women have been disqualified for their decisions (sometimes questionable, yes, because you know, no one’s perfect, and otherwise “he that is without sin among you, let him firstcast a stone”) when men involved in the situation haven’t, and even people decided they were so good they needed to be rescued from these evil Lady Macbeths that clearly had tricked them to do unspeakable stuff they wouldn’t do if there weren’t dirty females involved. Because you didn’t see anyone wondering why Niall would agree to cheat on the other fooled-by-Melissa guy. He’s as much responsible as she is. Because you need two to tango. But when was a man called home-wrecker? When was a man called attention-seeker? When was a man called gold-digger? When was a man shamed for sleeping around a lot? It only happens to Harry Styles, but that’s another proof that the shame comes when it happens with women.
Hating celebs wives and girlfriends has a long tradition, but fandom, due to the way it networks and its capacity to normalize certain behaviors, is certainly the epitome of it.
it took like five hundred years and like numerous pep-talks from jeonghan and the rest of seventeen to get him to build the courage to ask you out on a date but like thankfully one day he was just like ok gotta do this cant chicken out alright hong jisoo you can do th I S
is still teased to this day by hoshi about how joshua apparently said “you’re just so beautiful that it’s intimidating to approach you” as an excuse as to why he couldn’t ask you out
skinship makes him super shy like in the beginning he couldn’t even look at you for more than ten seconds without turning so red you thought he was going to overheat
now he actually really likes holding your hand when you two are in public he finds it to be the most endearing type of skinship especially when you lace your fingers together (although it took like two months to get to that stage)
surprisingly enough though when you tell joshua you’re cold or something he has no problem initating skinship for the benefit of your health
literally would wrap you up in his arms and press you close to his chest and whisper against your ear if you’re warm and enough and you’d be like ????? hong jisoo is this really you??? since when were you so…….soft and touchy…… and he’d just be like nonononono this isn’t romantic skinship it’s skinship for survival but too bad you’re already blushing and your heart is racing even quicker than before
joshua of course is oblivious to that
on the first date you told him what your favorite song was and he remembered it so he could learn how to play it on the guitar for you
when he finally got it perfect, he surprised you by playing it for you on your 100th day celebration
while performing he looked so calm and collected and smooth and you were literally swooning because good lord jisoo you look so handsome but once the song was over his cheeks went pink and he hide his face in his hands for like an hour
“was it really ok? oh god it was embarrassing wasn’t it? im sorry if i ruined your favorite song…..”
cooks for you sometimes but gets flustered to see you try his food
keeps underestimating himself in everything so you’re always like look at me joshua you are talented and amazing and such a great person!! i love and support you no matter what!!
of course when you say this he gets speechless and stutters and cant process any words but just happy sounds god what a cutie amiright
sometimes when you’re being really cute or he’s distracted with something you’re doing he’ll start switching between korean and english and mixing up words and just being like “im sorry oh my god it’s just you make my head spin because you’re so cute…..did i say that outloud? did i say that in korean? i need to sit down….”
when you fell asleep on him while you two were having an adventure time marathon he literally froze in place because he was too scared to wake you and woozi came in to check on u two only to see joshua sitting stiffly on the couch and woozi was like bro…..at least cover them with a blanket……
once seungkwan caught you singing to ‘20′ and so he recorded it and sent it to joshua with a joking text like “hey hyung make this your ringtone!” and guess what…..
joshua did it. he made your cute singing voice his frekaing ringtone…..
the background of his phone is actually a photo of you that he managed to take when you weren’t looking because you were focused on trying to help him tune his guitar and he thinks you looked really serene but like….he didn’t even notice he took the photo like it just happened… and for a while he was too embarrassed to own up to it but it was too nice to delete so he made it his background….
when you teasingly asked him why he took it he couldn’t give you an answer and was like “um uh oh look at the time i gtg”
you once walked in on him dancing to ‘jam jam’ and he begged you to never tell any of the members but like……you had to….you had to tell………joshua has yet to forgive u for that
your first kiss is initiated by you because like you’d be in the perfect moment but joshua would obviously keep hesitating and you’d be like “well……..” and he’d be like “well…here we are….” and you’d just roll your eyes and pull him down by the collar like just kiss me hong jisoo we do not have the time for this
after a while though you learn that joshua takes everything slowly when it comes to kissing, from pulling you close and shyly placing kisses up your neck to your mouth and then holding your gaze for a bit before leaning in to capture your lips.
all his kisses are drawn out and long and he’s never harsh or rough with you.
his hands always hold your waist or the small of your back and you don’t know if he knows it but he always holds you in a very protective manner like he doesn’t want to let you go ever
joshua has a hard time with jealousy because he’s not a very bold person so if someone is hitting on you or something he might panic and not be sure what to do
he’d actually sort of not notice it until someone else points it out or it begins to get physically but by that point joshua figures out that he has to step in to protect you so he’d just weave his way into the conversation and like step in between you and the person and just swallow his shyness and be like “can i help you? if not, we’ll be going now.”
he’d be a real gentlemen about it hehe
what he’s not a gentlemen about is when someone or something intends to hurt you. the people he loves and cares for are the things he holds closes so if he ever saw you in a dangerous situation he’d lose that calm and collected image and even lash out in a way you wouldn’t expect from him
this side won’t come out unless provoked of course
but anyway because he’s such a sweet, polite person by nature your family and friends all adore him but he still get shaky like “do you REALLY think they’ll like me?” and ofc they do they always do
he turns into a real geek when it comes to watching anime and he talks all the while explaining the characters and backstories and he gets all passionate and excited and it makes you giggle because jisoo stop you’re being TOO cute to handle rn
when you get him cute merch from his favorite animes he literally just glows with happiness because yes this is perfect you know him so well he doesnt dESERve you
seungcheol was jokingly asking joshua if he’s ever used you as a muse for a song on the guitar and joshua got super defensive and shy and now you think maybe he’s composing something just for you but you’re not sure (answer: he is but he’s saving it up for a special time)
in the mornings he’s a little drowsy so when he leans in to maybe get a kiss on the cheek from you, he misses and keeps bumping the edge of his mouth against yours and it’s like joshua sweety wake up om g……..
also when you try to wake him and he’s still in bed he has this habit of like pulling you down and murmuring that he just wants to hold you because you’re warm and when you flick his forehead and he comes to the realization of what happening he just becomes this mess of apologizes……
once cuddling becomes a day to day thing you notice that joshua likes to cuddle while facing each other
although he’s a nervous wreck with skinship sometimes, when you two are alone he feels like having your foreheads close and just looking into each others eyes is really romantic and relaxing
he’d want to just close his eyes and listen to your breathing and have you maybe run your fingers through his hair. The best time for you two to be like this is right in the morning, with the sun just coming up so you and him are still too tired to really talk….
took you out to play soccer with him outside and when you scored a goal on him he said it was because he ‘let you win’ but in reality he’s just too embarrassed and flustered to admit u beat him and now he owes you a piggyback ride back to the dorm
likes staying up with you on the phone because your voice brings him comfort
he misses america sometimes and he tells you that and you see that his family and being so far from them has really taken a toll and so when you take his hands in yours and promise that one day you’ll go there together you don’t even know how much those words mean to him
he wears lots of cardigans and when you borrow one one day because you’re cold and he sees you wearing it with your cute sweater paws and all he literally zooms out of the room because the image is too cute……too much….heart is not beating…….
“joshua, do you want to get married in korea or in america?” “m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-ma-r-marr-maRRIED !!!!!!1
hoshi in another room: “i think you broke him”
for joshua its hard to ask someone for help, but in you he sees someone who is there to not judge him no matter what he is going through so sometimes he spills out a lot and it’s all genuine, raw feeling and when he can’t find a way to say it, you still understand what he’s feeling and that enough shows him that you care
on the other hand when you’re upset, joshua can get frazzled and worried easily, but he keeps a collected face because he doesn’t want to burden you further. he always listens first and offers advice later. he always reminds you that no matter what - a situation can be positive and there’s always a way to grow from it. sometimes he doesn’t even know it, but just his presence brings a sense of hope with it for you at least
when you two have lazy walks around the park he’ll secretly pick a flower to put in your hair but he’ll keep it behind his back for too long because he wouldn’t be able to find the perfect moment to tuck it behind your ear
thankfully you tuck one behind his ear and he finally has the ability to do the same to you
likes it when you read him fairytales or stories out loud. again, your voice really enchants him
when you ask him to go on rollercoasters with you or anything extreme like that he sort of swallows and just shakes his head like “no……i love you but…..no………”
his scared face is really cute you always tease him for it
you have this little tradition that whenever you travel you’ll bring him back a guitar pic from the place you went to and whenever he travels he’ll get you a set of pretty postcards
once mingyu gave you and joshua matching hairstyles and when you two looked at each other you couldn’t help but laugh so hard you lost all your breath
likes sitting around with you late at night eating pizza and talking and listening to 2BiC and other favorite artists of yours
is a worry wart about your health so always makes sure you have a scarf when it’s cold or sunglasses when it’s hot
wrapped his scarf around you once in the winter and hoshi refers to that moment as you and joshua’s “drama-like romance”. joshua keeps telling him to stop. hoshi doesn’t.
saying “i love you” is important to joshua. it’s not something he takes lightly. it takes time for him to say it but when he does you know he means it because he’s looking at you and he’s holding your hand in his and the night sky is twinkling and hong jisoo’s voice isn’t wavering. not even a little bit.
when he’s happy his whole face literally gets bright and you love that about it him and when you tell him he gets embarrassed but it’s nice he admits, to have someone tell him that he’s bright especially someone who he thinks is literally always glowing
when you two are together people say you’re just a positive couple that gives off a caring and calming feel.
joshua is one hundred percent flustered around you no matter what but he’s flustered because you’re cute and hey guess what - he also totally really truly loves you

Person A is really shy about proposing so they just slip the ring on while Person B is asleep. Characters: Steve Rogers, Natasha Romanoff & Tony Stark
reposted cause Tumblr fucked up my shit.
The evening had to go perfectly for what Steve had planned, it should do since he had planned it to the very last detail, and he had made all the arrangements for this to be the perfect night for you. He would be taking you to your favourite restaurant; it was small Italian place just around the corner from your apartment.
He even got Natasha to go out and buy a dress for you, it was simple and elegant, and you had smiled when you saw it and kissed him for the present. Now everything else had to go perfectly like it did this morning. He was too busy going over the schedule that he didn’t have time to relax, to allow nervousness to settle in like it should, nope he was making sure the car was picking you both up at the right time.
He pulled on his shoes, glancing at the clock and tapping his foot on the wooden flooring, he then heard you coming down the stairs his smiling lightening up instantly; your lilac heart-neck-line dress, flowed prettily out just above your knees, you twirled happily and he beckoned you over.
“You look so beautiful,” he muttered leaning down to capture your pink stained lips, the kiss was short lived when a car horn honked outside, he pulled away instantly; grabbing your hand and tugging you out the door in your white strappy heels.
Even the restaurant being a few blocks away the traffic was nightmare and Steve beginning to get frustrated, you frowned and grabbed his hand, rubbing small comforting circles into the back of it. Once the car pulled up, Steve jumped out and opened the door for you, smiling you take his hand once more and walk inside; you didn’t know exactly why Steve was treating you but it was nice.
You both walked in, “Reservation under Rogers,” Steve muttered as he wrapped and arm around your waist instead, smiling down at you as you wait to be taken to your table.
“Sorry but even with a reservation it’s a ten minute wait for a table, sir,” the women spoke, Steve sighed and had picked the least busy night and yet, you were still being told to wait “there’s a bar over there, someone will call you as soon as the available table arrives.”
You gently pull Steve towards the bar, “it’s okay, we’ll wait, thank you.” You call and the young smile as Steve locks his jaw, he wanted and needed things to run smoothly, so far traffic and waiting for a table it’s things running smoothly.
You both ordered drinks and sat down in two comfy chairs at the back of the bar area, Steve keeping an eagle eye on any waiter that comes in the area, a hawk ear for his last name also.
“Why are so keyed up?” you asked as he looked at you, you sipped a small glass of white wine and raised an eyebrow in question “what’s got you so tense, Stevie?”
Truth is he wanted to propose to you and he knew it didn’t matter how just as long as you said yes but he needed it to be perfect because you are so perfect to him. He wanted things to run smoothly because they should, this was his big moment, the big one.
“I just wanted to treat you to a nice date,” he smiles offering a hand over the small table, you gladly accept and grin at him “we’ve both been so busy that I just wanted this to be perfect.”
“Oh, you, it already is because you are with me” he blushed at your words, causing you to smile with achievement, you lived to make this man blush and he knew it “I love you.” You simply stated as you sipped your wine.
Those three words always made his heart pound with excitement, “I love you too” only repeating them never seemed to fully be enough for Steve, they never really expressed how he really felt about you, he didn’t think there will ever be enough words in the whole of time to explain the emotions he gets around you.
His name was called and you were shown to your seats, were upon Steve ordered you both a bottle of champagne, much to your disagreeing eyes but he simply shrugged as it was poured into tall flute glasses. You both skimmed the menus but you always got the same here, no matter what, you liked what you liked and that wouldn’t change.
Now that you were both sat and all that was left to do was ask question Steve felt the nerves settling in, they were always there but his mind too preoccupied to even register the butterflies and pins and needles feeling in the tips of his fingers. He could feel the weight of the small red velvet box in his pocket; it was heavy and felt bigger than a simple engagement ring box.
He was sweating under the mood lightening the restaurant had set plus all the candles, the quiet voices of others were louder to him than your own and you were right in front of him, he rubbed the palms of his hands on his legs and smiled as best he could at you. About to start talking when.-
“Y/N?” someone asked, both yourself and Steve turned and you see a couple walking to you, Steve looked at you as you frowned for a moment before smiling brightly.
“Joe?” you asked standing up, he nodded and Steve watched as you hugged this other man, a few years older than you and the women on his arm was younger than him and you “Oh, Joe this is Steve my boyfriend and Steve this is Joe, my boyfriend from college” Steve nodded and gave an awkward wave.
He was tall, not as tall himself but only a few inches shorter. Dirty blonde hair, dark brown eyes and tanned skin, his tan looked fake and his teeth were bright against his skin. He looked like the definition of the word ‘douche’ that Sam uses a lot. The women beside him is smiley, clinging to him like an accessory piece, he felt almost bad cause honestly, she deserved to stand against better.
“Nice to meet you, Steve, this is Gwen my girlfriend” he gestured to the women beside him, you nodded and smiled kindly at her, “we must catch up, let’s all eat together.” You glanced at Steve, who looked as though he was about to snap someone in half for that suggestion.
“I don’t think they have a table big enough for us-“ you began but was cut off.
“Nonsense, I’ll have the waiters put two tables together for us” and just like that, you were sat with two tables combined and listening to Joe talk about himself, what he was doing and talking about the lads from college and how successful they were; they all went on to major league baseball, but somehow Gregg is with an opposing team, and Dylan broke his wrist and can’t play for upcoming games. Stuff Steve didn’t fucking care about but yet he knew all of it.
“What about you, Y/N, what you been up to?” he grinned at you, something of a flicker in his eyes as he drank you and Steve chewed his food with eyes ablaze.
“Not a lot, I work for Stark Industries, specifically with Stark himself,” you tell him and he raises his eyebrows, “it’s how I met Steve,” you place a fond on your boyfriends bicep as Joe looks at Steve.
Yeah, I’m still here buddy, “I work alongside Stark, extremely close friends” you chuckle “part of the Avengers, we sometimes save the world.” He shrugged that peaked Joe’s ‘girlfriend’ interest.
“Oh, really? An Avenger that must be time consuming,” Joe frowned thoughtfully and Steve wanted to snap his neck.
“Not really, we don’t have the usual office hours; besides sometimes I get the weekend off” you nudge his shoulder with a chuckle, “what is tennis hours like?”
“Baseball” Joe corrects with a snap “they’re fine, training takes up some time but like you said, not office hours” Steve narrowed his eyes.
It’s silent as Steve has a stare down with Joe as he eats Crème Brule, it would have been funny to you if you weren’t worried for Joe’s safety, and the glare he was receiving was like no other. After the awkward who would pay the bill, Steve eventually snapped and slapped his card on the table, causing the glasses to shake as he challenged Joe who pretended to chuckle and put his wallet away with amusement.
The car drove you home in silence, you glanced over at Steve who was glaring sulkily out of the window, although he still managed to open your door and help your coat off once inside your apartment. It remains silent as you both get ready for bed, this isn’t how Steve imagined undressing, and it featured a lot more of you and less him unbuttoning his shirt.
He crawled into bed before you, laying on his back as you climbed in also, kissing his cheek and turning your bedside lamp off, Steve followed suit but laid with his eyes open as you eventually drifted knowing you wouldn’t be talking or anything with Steve before bed. It’s silent in your bedroom, deadly silent and he glances down at you, sleeping curled against his arm.
He pulls the ring out from the bedside draw; he always keeps it near him, no matter what. He gave another look to you, turning to face you gently and taking your left hand in his; he pulled the ring from the box and delicately put it on the ring finger. His smile coming onto his face, he was too shy to ask you before and then Joe ruined the rest of the night, so he had nothing to lose with this.
*MORNING – AT WORK*
“So, Rogers actually asked last night?” Tony asked with a joyous but amused grin for his friend, you frowned softly at your friend and boss, he pointed to your hand “that beautiful, vintage inspired, Tony helped find ring, ring.”
You pulled your left hand to your face, sure enough there sat a gorgeous, vintage ring on your finger not on any finger, your ring finger! You frowned, Steve never asked last night but it explains his behaviour last night and this morning.
Before Tony question you, you were running out and down to the training area where Steve would be with Nat, training new recruits. You burst through the door, Steve and Nat turned with a frown, the recruits also giving you a weird look and all you did was hold up your hand in mild shock and slight affection for the man before you.
“Oh, yeah, that” he pointed and you nodded, “I don’t know how to explain myself just that the night was ruined, I had this whole speech but I got all nervous, then Joe with his stupid tennis job showed up- I know it’s baseball Nat, shut up! – and then I sort of just put it on your finger and decided I had nothing to lose at this point.” He shrugged slightly embarrassed with the audience of people watching.
“You are the biggest idiot I know and love,” you sighed happily and he grinned in hope “I actually love how you done it, you didn’t even need to ask me, you should know I’d have said yes.”
He rolled his clear, blue eyes and leaned down for you to kiss his cheek, still not big on PDA despite how long you’ve been together. You grab his face in both hands, pulling him down to kiss you properly, shocked at first he eventually kissed back. Your arms wrapping around his neck as he settled his hands on your waist, kissing you with only slight tongue cause even consumed by happiness and you, he still wasn’t fond on PDA.
“I love you,” you pulled away with a grin, pecking his lips as he blushed.
“I love you too,” he leaned down and kissed you again, this time it was short and when you pulled away, you hugged Nat before saying you had to leave otherwise Stark would die without coffee.
Steve watched you leave with a dopey face on before turning back to the recruits, slightly dazed and puzzled with what he was talking about before, he shrugged and just went, “that was my finance, isn’t she gorgeous” sparking a whole lot of young males to nod in agreement, Steve had picked the first ones to train.
(Sorry, Tumblr for some reason didn;t like the first post of this and made it all one paragraph, which annoyed me. So, hopefully, this works. I’d tag but I don’t have time to do so, sorry. - Rosalee)
Thanks to last night I now finally have a headcanon fancast for Peter Grant!
I mean, who knew that that cute little boy who played Dean Thomas grew into an astonishingly good-looking 25 year old? I didn’t. Damn, son. And apart from being gorgeous, he’s also got something fairly happy-looking about him that makes it a great fit for Peter. Perfection, I say!
So now I have a Peter Grant (who is conveniently shirtless for your viewing pleasure):
