A/N: I’M BAAAACK!! It’s the 2 month anniversary of this account and we’re a squad of 523… a number I never thought I’d reach let alone reach in 2 months so thank you my lovelies xx I thought I’d greet this 2 month hiatus return with a hella long imagine x so enjoy reading and send me imagine requests (i’m only answering ships every thurs) xx
“Sirius wins.” You announced, standing up from your leaning position on the wall.
“No way!” James protested, panting.
“I have an unfair advantage. You see these cheekbones? Aerodynamically suited for speed.” Sirius said, somehow he said it seriously. ‘Well those cheekbones are sharp’, you found yourself thinking.
You rolled your eyes and started walking around the sofa, spotting Lily as you did so. “Hey Lils.” You smiled.
“Hey, oh sit, I want to ask you something.”
You winked at James who was practically drooling over Lily and sat down. Eventually, you’d satisfactorily answered her question and you were free to go.
“How do you do it?” James asked immediately as you sat down.
“Well, you see, I bend my knees and let gravity pull me to my seat. It’s-”
“Shut up, you know what I mean.”
Remus had started sniggering at his friend’s stupidity. James shot Remus a threatening glare, stopping him immediately and went back to his book.
You giggled slightly and continued chatting, “Just talk to her like she’s a normal person.”
“I’ve been trying!” He groaned. In all the years you had known James, you’d never seen him act like this about a girl- ‘if only Sirius felt like this about me’ you thought.
Sirius came back from his shower shortly after, shooing Remus further over the sofa so he could sit in his favourite spot that, coincidentally, was next to you.
At around 11, you finally felt your eyes grow heavy and flutter shut, falling asleep next to Sirius.
Sirius admired you as you slept, unaware of his surroundings, he loved everything about you and you just seemed more beautiful lit by the fire: your eyelashes cast soft shadows over your cheekbones, your lips were slightly parted and your brows slightly furrowed.
And James watched as his best friend admired another, both so painfully obviously in love yet so blind to it.
You stirred slightly, breaking both boys reverie, Sirius shot up and announced he was going to bed. You waved him good night sleepily and was about to go to bed yourself when James pounced a question on you.
“Does Lily like me?”
“You know she does you twat. She just doesn’t want to give in, she has no reason to, you’re always available to her.”
James looked as though he was going to defend himself but thought better of it.
A familiar look spread across his tanned face and you straightened up, “Potter, I know that look, stop, no.”
“You like Sirius.” you spluttered from shock but James merely continued, “I like Lily. They like us back. We need to make them jealous.”
“Fuck off.” You whinged, not in the mood for a ‘Potter Plan’ as you and Eudaimonia called them.
“Nah, hear me out. We pretend to date, they get jealous and boom, love is in the air.” James looked at you triumphantly, the look not faltering when you glared back.
“Ew, gross, no. You’re like my brother.”
“Calm down, it’s not like I’d ever date you.”
“Doing great, dear.”
“You know what I mean.”
You paused, pondering the idea, and took a deep breath, “Until Friday.”
This post is late af but yesterday was one of my friend’s birthday (Happy Birthday Nicki!) and my chocolate cupcake, Jada, decided to accompany me to the turn up 😘 I say we cleaned up pretty well for two girls who usually don’t 😂
Jae: my favorite drink….water? I kinda like some other soft drinks and stuff like that, but lately I’ve been trying to, you know, stay off that because it makes me jittery. I used to have a can before I go up on stage but then it makes me like super nervous so I’m trying to avoid that. As for my favorite food, since you [person who sent in the question] said you’re from Japan, I’m really craving ramen. You’re so lucky man. [bc the Japanese person can eat it frequently in japan]
[basically they were talking about obsessions]
Jae: I am currently O B S E S S E D, I am literally obsessed with 2k [basketball video game]. I can’t get off MyCareer [game option on 2k] to save my life. I find myself going late to band practice because of that. I find myself waking up late and staying up later because of that game. I will destroy anyone that comes at me, so…come at me.
[out of the 2 options, he has to pick which one he is more obsessed with]
1: music charts or my appearance
Jae: music charts. That’s what important man. Music.
2: if my girlfriend does not answer my call, I will call her again and again. Yes or no?
Jae: it’s been so long, I don’t know if I’ve changed. It’s been like SO long. Should we just do like, what it used to be like or what I think I would do now? [answer: what you would do now]. Oh okay. No. I used to. I remember like back in college like…[weird voice] I was crazy! It was just hard for me back then. Especially cause like, in college is that whole party scene and everyone’s always partying all the time. It’s like, if she doesn’t pick up her phone on Saturday night at like 1am, I’m just like…what’s going on? Driving me [weird voice] crazy. Makes me CRAZY! I’m just like a super insecure dude, man. I think that’s the thing. I’M UGLY OKAY! I know it! I know!
3: I like a girl who is obsessed with me [yes or no]
Jae: I like a girl who is obsessed with me. [changed his answer after thinking]. Actually, I would rather be the one obsessing. I can’t relate to that anymore because I don’t remember how it feels. My emotions are dead. Love isn’t real.
Question: do you have any inferiority complexes?
Jae: [before Bernard even finished the question] YES. I have a lot. My small eyes, my vocal ability, my long torso, [bernard: your long torso?] DON’T GET ME STARTED MAN! DON’T GET ME STARTED MAN! I’VE GOT A COMPLEX BRO!
Question: do you have any fans that stick out to you? Do you have any stalker fans?
Jae: I mean all of our fans stick out. And we don’t have any stalker fans. But we do have this one fan, he’s a guy, and he comes to our concerts and his lung capacity is crazy. Everyone’s screaming but you can just hear his tone. Everyone’s like “ahh oppa!” he’s like [deep loud voice] “oooOOOHHH!” We’re just like “dang boy okay!” But yeah he’s super cool man, he supports us hella good so we appreciate it.

I’m doing @modernwitchesdaily‘s witchy art challenge with @amethystcallingwoot woot! For week 1, this is my witchsona and her sentient familiar, my irl typewriter Alma (yes I named her she also has a brother called Fred. They are my children. Do not disparage them). I basically just drew myself and added a hat, but hey.
Y/N had never really been to a party, let alone one held at
a mansion as expensive as this. There wasn’t as many people as she anticipated,
but that wasn’t a problem at all. Whoever owned this house must’ve had some
sort of trust fund – marble floors with columns holding up the second floor
paired with an east and west wing.
There was even an indoor – and heated – swimming pool in the
back. Some people had gone to the back to drink and wade in the water. Y/N had
been dragged to this party by her group of friends, but at the same time, she
wanted to experience a nice house party at least once in her life.
It was obvious who ran this party – they all wore similar
styles of clothing and everyone seemed to fawn over them. Y/N could only
recognize a few, like the blond boy named Mark and his friend Johnny. It was
rare to see the group of boys ever separate. The lights were dimmed and the
music was loud, the crowd of people in the first floor just swaying and
mingling. The signature red Solo cup was in almost everyone’s hands – everyone
Part V – “But we’re still sleeping like we’re lovers”
I stood there, transfixed by the overwhelming
feeling of her in my arms, unbelievingly real against the paleness of my tired
memories. I didn’t know what had happened to her – clearly something had happened – but was only glad I had
found her, right in the moment when my arms seemed to be so needed to hold her.
“Will ye tell me?” I murmured against her hair –
fragrant like a freshly squeezed lemon, like a garden after pouring rain -, my
hands rubbing her back in soothing circles. “What happened?”
“I will.” She tilted her chin, allowing our
eyes to meet – hers were dry but glassy, as if her body was wrecked with fever.
“I want to tell you.”
“Good.” I attempted a calming smile, but felt
the muscles of my face stiff from concern. “Do ye want to sit down?”
“We can’t talk here.” Claire told me, finally stepping
back, away from the comfort of my body – I felt the loss of her warmth as acutely
as I would miss a limb. Phantom pain, permanent and excruciating, constructed
by the mind to deal with unbearable loss. “This is Geillis place – she is a close
friend – and she’ll be arriving shortly from work. I thought she had forgotten
her keys when you knocked.”
“Ye can come to my house.” I offered, almost
biting my tongue in eagerness. The image of Claire in my home - the tips of her
fingers brushing the book spines in the shelf, her lips drinking from one of my
glasses - a kiss shared through the marks we’d both leave there – made my heart
swell to the point of bursting. “I mean, we can have a conversation there
without being disturbed or interrupted.” I babbled, struggling to explain
myself over a bout of flushing cheeks.
“Alright.” She nodded in agreement – trusting
me implicitly. Naturally. “Let me
just feed Adso and grab my coat.” The feline meowed in agreement and rubbed
against Claire’s legs, sleek and charming, as if he had been waiting to be acknowledged.
We made our way through the pleasant streets of
Edinburgh, headed towards my house, located just a few blocks away. We traded
some words, but were mostly immersed in our thoughts – preparing what we would
say and do, when we finally could expose ourselves in a safe haven. As we
walked, we didn’t touch – not even our arms bumped into each other, in that
casual way of shared movement. We were both consciously avoiding to touch,
keeping a safe distance, even if acutely aware of each other.
“It isna a big house.” I apologized in a
jumbled way as we entered my apartment, collecting unmatched socks and forgotten
papers along the way.
“I love it!” Claire smiled in a reassuring way,
admiring the big flat screen and black speakers. Her butterscotch eyes covered
my pictures and books, the quilt thrown over the back of the sofa, the
magazines and pamphlets I had sorted inside a little basket next to the
bookcase. “I can tell you live here – it’s warm and alive. It’s a real home.”
I grinned in content – almost purring in
satisfaction -, as she took off her coat. She wandered around, touching objects
with a respectful hand and clicking her tongue in appreciation of my book
collection. Eventually she talked again, her back turned to me.
“Where is your bedroom?” She asked in a rough
voice, unhinged – and then, predicting my puzzlement, she added in a low and
hesitant tone, as if talking to herself. “I haven’t been sleeping much – I didn’t
want to close my eyes and let my mind roam freely. I can barely stand on my
feet, to be honest. Besides,” Claire turned and glanced at me, fumbling again
with her sleeves. “I think it would be easier to talk if we touched.”
“Aye.” I breathed deeply, walking towards my
room. “Whatever ye need.”
I watched as she laid down on my bed, above the
plaid that meant home to me – taking off her boots and socks in the process.
Her movements were slow and calculated, as if she wished to cause minimal
impact with her presence, so that I would carry on with my life after her
departure. Claire rolled to her side, curled like an unborn child, safe and
peaceful in the womb.
I came around the bed and managed to lay down –
silent and precise as a thief in the night -, leaving an empty space between
us, as I faced her. She seemed tired beyond her years and utterly broken.
Without a word she slid her hand to the middle
of the bed, where I could reach out and touch it – I did so, softly playing
with her fingers until she relaxed and our hands were entwined.
“Why are ye here?” I asked, my voice husky. Her
face was a duality of shadows and bursts of light, coming from the window to
dance on her features. “In Scotland?”
“I had to come.” Claire adjusted her face on
the pillow, caressing the nail of my thumb with her fingers, her golden wedding
ring cold like a fetch between us. “I couldn’t be in Boston right now – I needed
time to think. This is the one place that has been home to me.”
“Are ye still married?” I risked, watching in anguish
as she winced in pain. She sighed – but the movements of my hand in hers seemed
to calm her enough to go on.
“Separated.” She licked her quivering bottom
lip, avoiding my eyes. “It turns out Frank wasn’t the man I thought he was. He wanted to own me.” Claire pursed her lips
in anger. “And when he couldn’t own me, I wasn’t enough. Everyday became a war
between us. A long and tiresome war.”
I gulped, taking in the shrapnel of her destruction.
With a swift movement of my spare hand, I rolled up the sleeve of her sweater,
revealing bruises the colour of mustard and moss, screaming against her marble white
skin – marks of resentful fingers, forceful enough to break vessels and
spirits. A lonely tear streamed down her cheek.
“He hurt ye!” I hissed furiously between
clenched teeth, fighting the urge to maim the husband who had so recklessly
broke the vow to protect her – to love
her. She needed my restraint and I could offer it to her – not another
display of bad temper by a man she had trusted. I hesitantly touched the
bruises, wishing to erase them with kisses, to heal them with the adoration I
would bestow upon her.
“I hurt him back.” Claire assured me, a look of
shame crossing her face – as if I could pay witness to the degradations
inflicted by both during their marriage. “He didn’t want me to leave. Frank
said he still loves me.”
“Does he?” I asked with gentleness, battling
the urge to ask her if she still loved him.
“I don’t know.” The tear track on her face
glistened like a dry river, leaving thirst in its wake. “His love didn’t hurt
like this, before.”
I wanted to ask her details on her failed marriage
– her unhappiness was patent and unbearable – but restrained myself. She must
have spent hours replaying the film of her derailed life, echoing words meant
to harm – there was no cure to be found in saying them once more. I wished only
to placate her pain – to take it all into myself, if I could. I longed to be
the bringer of her smiles and not of her tears.
“I called ye.” I suddenly revealed, half
embarrassed. “I waited too long – ye were gone by then. Maybe if I did…things
would have been different.”
“Perhaps.” Claire agreed, haltingly. “But you
were right – I shouldn’t have settled for less.”
I risked to brush her hair – silky and curly,
so elementally Claire that took my breath away – and she closed her eyes in
enjoyment of the intimate touch.
“What will ye do?” I asked, so afraid of the
answer I could die. I wished for nothing more than to have her in my bed, lying
so close to me as I memorized her, for the rest of my days. And yet I knew I
had no guarantee of intimacy, of another conversation, of another touch – I savoured
them all as a gift, for they were precious and not promised.
“I have to go back to Boston.” Claire
explained, gripping my hand with strength. “I have a life there – a nursing
job, medical school, friends and - .” She stopped, her eyes wide open.
I swallowed hard, fighting against myself to offer her an encouraging smile. “Ye
are still married to him.”
“Yes.” She closed her eyes, almost sobbing. I
brought her hand closer to my mouth and kissed her knuckles.
“I won’t tell ye what to do – that is for ye to
decide, mo nighean donn. But I need
ye to know something, Claire.” I touched her chin with tenderness, urging her
to open her eyes. “Ye alone hold all my heart – even before I knew yer name, ye
meant light to me. I’ll wait for ye
my whole live – and gladly so, even if it means that I’ll watch ye from afar,
happy and fulfilled with another man, worthy of ye.”
“Jamie, I – “ Claire started, but I kissed her
hand again and brought her against my chest, where my heart kept pounding,
speaking enough to silence her.
“I’d rather ye dinna make promises ye may not
wish to keep afterwards, when yer heart is less sore. When – if - ye mean them,
I’ll be here.” I pleaded, staring into her eyes – she held my gaze for a while
and nodded back. “Rest now, mo nighean
donn. Let me watch over ye as ye sleep. Let me see ye safe.”
“I’m always safe with you.” She whispered.
I cherished her and held her hand until she
fell asleep – finding new reasons to love her while she dreamt. She felt safe
and protected with me – and, for that moment, it was enough.
Even when night came and we were left in
complete darkness, I listened to her breathing, absorbing the symphony of the lover I craved. Once in a while I closed my eyes, making sure I could remember her perfectly
– opening them again to correct a small detail, to drink another drop of her,
afraid I would forget. Tormented I wouldn’t.
In the wee hours of night, I fought against
sleep. I felt raw and tender, heart and body aching, calling me irresistibly to
I must have surrendered at some point. I had
the vague recollection of a chaste kiss against my lips – timid, yet burning.
