When history professor Lance McClain stumbles across a mysterious object, he has no idea it will lead him and his friends to a time ship crashed in the year 2016. But with this amazing discovery comes a dire message from the two future refugees onboard: Lance and his friends must become paladins, protectors of time itself. Now, they must struggle to preserve history all while preventing the rise of an immortal despot, bent on destroying everything in his path to conquer the future, including the paladins themselves.
The stranger’s hand shot out, grabbing Lance’s shoulder. It didn’t seem like much force was being exerted, but the man’s grip on his shoulder was unnaturally strong. Lance tried to wiggle out of its grasp, to no avail.
“Give. Me. The bayard.”
The hold on Lance’s shoulder tightened briefly and he let out a yelp of pain. Lance felt fairly certain he was bruised down to the bone now. He looked up and stiffened in fear, because, yep, the man’s eyes had definitely turned gold.
I could remember the way you smiled at me, the jokes you cracked in class, the way you smelled when you said you haven’t taken a bath for days because that’s what engineering students did. I could feel your hand touching mine as we sang “The Lord’s Prayer” when you and I went to church on a Sunday afternoon after I accompanied you on your Christmas shopping. I could even taste that buko pie from Laguna or Tagaytay that you bought for me on your way home from your field trip.
The random dates, oh! There were a lot. You would ask me out every time you were available, or should I say, every time you were in between relationships. I, on the other hand, also had a couple of legitimate boyfriends over the years. But never ever in those ten years were you really out of my mind.
Back in college, I told myself that I would find you once I graduated and got a stable job. But my jobs were not stable for three years. I moved from one company to another, trying to search for where I would fit in. And when I finally found the job that I loved, you had a serious relationship with someone else. And worse, you moved to another continent.
We still kept our communication lines open. You still maintained your original mobile number because of its sentimental value, like you said. But even when you broke up with your serious girlfriend, you NEVER pursued me.
We confessed our feelings to each other explicitly and implicitly countless of times. I waited. I thought to myself that maybe, you were still enjoying your bachelorhood. I waited for years. Though we would go out whenever you were on vacation in Manila, you never said a word about our status. You would just text me whenever you felt like going out on a date. And I would just say “yes" every time… until I could say yes no more.
I am sorry for not having waited a little longer for something that would or would not come. I am sorry for not being aggressive enough or vocal enough to tell you how much you meant to me when it could have still made a difference. But I am just like other girls who prefer being loved and pursued to loving one-sidedly.
There’s nothing I can do now. I won’t pursue you anymore. I won’t hold you back from loving other women. I won’t ask for your attention anymore or your time or for even just a short reply to my messages. I am letting you go. You may own a piece of my heart forever, but I won’t let you own all of me anymore. Not because I stopped loving you. I still do. It’s just that I got tired waiting for you to man up… so I married another man — a man who loved me back like you never did.
Any form of contact between Guardian Angels and their charges is
strictly forbidden, for obvious reasons. However, after Character A- a
rookie Guardian- accidentally reveals themself to Character B- a clumsy
human constantly in need of protecting- the human refuses to forget
about the angel, or the spark they obviously had. So, Character B puts
themself in increasingly dangerous situations in order to meet Character
“So this might be awkward, but I’ve noticed you following me around
quite a bit lately, and it’s kinda creepy, but you’re also really hot,
so maybe instead of stalking me you should just ask me out- what? No,
I’m not a prophet? No, seriously, I’m a writer and I talk to myself all
the time, that doesn’t make me a prophet, you don’t need to protect me
from Satan or whatever” AU
Angels and humans have been cohabitating Earth for years now, and they
were mostly over all that ‘Wings Not Welcome’ propaganda. It was the
67th century, for Pete’s sake. That’s why it comes as such a shock to
Character A- a human- to see Character B- an angel and their longtime
crush- getting pushed around and taunted by a group of human
supremacists. Character A has a few things to say to them, along with a
hurt angel to tend to- both physically and emotionally.
“The other week we were kind of cuddling and watching
Supernatural/some Tom Hanks movie and I thought you were finally gonna
make a move, but then the angel plot line started and you got super
offended and distant and I’m really confused? I thought we were having a
Character A – a wingless angel – was banished to Earth out of shame a
few years ago, and they’d only made one real friend in that time-
Character B, a snarky human with both protective and curious streaks,
which doesn’t bode well if Character A wants to keep their true identity
a secret. However, that becomes continuously difficult as the years
pass and Character B starts to notice how their best friend and possible
love of their life doesn’t seem to age.
“You’ve been my best friend for years and I’m completely in love with
you, but you just walked in while I was stretching my wings and you’re
probably freaking out, and I probably just ruined- wait, why are you
looking at my wings like that? Why are you coming closer and why are you
touching them- oh my gosh, that feels amazing, don’t stop whatever it
is you’re doing.”
Musing about being a POC and queer individual in the TMNT fandom:
I think the hardest part of being in the TMNT fandom for me is the fact that I am not white, am not straight, am not cis, or even neurotypical, and… I identify fairly hard with the turtles because of those things.
But then… they’re drawn or written as all of those things probably 90% of the time when people are humanizing them, and its just. so hard. to let that go, even though those people have no idea they’re affecting some random person across the internet. Compared to the hundreds of others who don’t feel this way, my personal opinion doesn’t really matter.
I don’t hold it against anyone for their headcanons, and I have never a day in my life sent hate to a person for having those headcanons, since I know those depend almost entirely on the personal life and experiences of those individuals.
They still bother me though, since I feel like it erases a large part of what the turtles’ identities are, which is being a minority among minorities.
They’re the only four of their kind, and pretty much utterly isolated from the rest of the world. They’ve never fit in, and never will, because they are inherently different from the rest of society. They are, in a phrase, freaks of nature.
My circumstances aren’t as extreme, not even close, but I know that feeling on a personal level regardless. Having them portrayed as the socially acceptable norm, it erases a large part of what makes them so interesting; which would be their sheer alien-ness from the rest of us. By making them ordinary cis white straight etc etc in humanized headcanons, I feel it takes away from their original characterization as a minority.
And it just really bothers me, as a single individual in the fandom, to have characters I identify with so strongly become pretty much the complete opposite of who and what I am, and thusly become no longer relatable. It’s just a difficult thing to deal with sometimes, especially since I have no power to change it other than ignoring the content I don’t like.
I hope no one takes this as an insult to their personal headcanons about the series; its just the words from someone who’s never fit correctly to any box, and found a strong connection to four characters who I felt were similar to me in that sense.
do you have any harumichi fan fiction recommendations? maybe some korrasami too ?
ok first I’m gunna be shameless and plug my own shit because ahaha please read my stuff and tell me to write more: this series, this, Thisthis and this (which are all various levels of smut I’m sorry), and finally this which honestly might be one of my favorite things that I’ve written so there you go.
Second, Imma be honest and say that it’s been a while since I’ve read HaruMichi fanfic. I’ve not been as active in the Circle as I was a couple years ago so I dunno what’s been written nowadays. Some of my recs might be old/you’ve already read them but that’s the catch of an old fandom with only recently new content but I can definitely point you to some of my favorites!
Literally anything by @fortythousandth like I’m not kidding he writes the best smut stuff and is pretty much responsible for my Haruka Tenoh!gender feelings but specifically read this (although read everything in this series) this and this
talk about their friendship :) it's a bit banal tho
Oh trust me my dear anon this won’t be boring!
First i want to start with the fact that kihyun and wonho are the longest trainee since they arrived in starship before other members,so there is already this long term friendship going on.
The main important reason why i ship kiho is because of the way they supported each other in no.mercy! Kihyun and Wonho were together since 3rd mission until the very last mission they were always in the same team and from that i noticed how much kihyun took care of wonho as hyung and how much wonho look after kihyun as a dongsaeng!
When wonho was practicing for his solo mission kihyun came up to him and cheered him before he leave.
I don’t know if you know but they showed 2 sec of kihyun literally sitting on wonho’s thighs while wonho was doing his sit up :)
^^(this is from ep 3 btw if you are curious). I mean you have to be pretty comfortable with each other to be able to do this. (gosh this ss always gives me extreme feels but i should move on)
In no mercy when they go out they were always next to each other and sit next to each other! After they went to k.will concert wonho talked about how he first met kihyun and acted out how kihyun was like when they first met. I found this really sweet and wonho is always teasing kihyun just to make him laugh!.
this was when wonho was cheering on segyero and when wonho forgot to introduce the segyero team kihyun was there to remind him about it.
When kihyun was nervous wonho cheered him by saying “show them what a main vocalist can do”.
hugging after their last mission together.
when wonho’s name was announced as a member of monsta x kihyun willingly put his hand out to hold wonho’s hand probably to show that he is happy and glad and appreciate that after so long they are finally in a team together!
Now that was just short no.mercy friendship kiho that i have in mind rn. after debut,i see fancams where wonho would tease kihyun and tickle him. there was a show champion backstage video where wonho said he wasn’t sure how his performance turn out well and kihyun told him he did well and in the same video they were sweating and wonho wiped kihyun’s neck with a tissue and etc.
On kihyun’s birthday last year they had a fansign and mind you kihyun have his own jacket on and wonho gave his jacket to kihyun to show that he care. action speaks more than words right?
so kihyun ended up with two jackets
there is a fancam where shownu accidentally hit kihyun’s lips with his elbow during a fansign and wonho came screaming at shownu for hurting him and asked kihyun if he was bleeding.
These little moments where they take special care of each other and how they always support each other is what makes me love kiho so much as an otp and i love their friendship so much i can’t explain it in words. They are not touchy obvious otpbut they stay a distance from each other while supporting each other and i just have a weak heart for them two being sweet to each other.
WOW ok this is longer than i expected but i shall stop here. Please appreciate kiho and their friendship :)
Picked up some mini prints today!!
They would have looked a lot better if I had the versions of the book that I based the colour schemes on and also if the people who work at Staples understood the concept of using bleed when printing images.
something along the lines of : chikara - ‘how come your bike keeps breaking down?’ tanaka - ‘i dunno, the dude must’ve sold me a crappy one’ chikara - ‘uh huh’ chikara ain’t no fool
