composure

From an early age, Andrew has learned that nothing good ever came from emotions. Caring for someone was exhausting when in a few months’ time, maybe even a few weeks, he would be off to the next foster home. So Andrew stopped. He stopped caring for people who would only disappoint him. He stopped caring for himself when it was easier to forget the pain that way. He stopped caring for life itself when it proved that it was not going to get better. It was what made Andrew not only a good goalie, but a great one. He cut nanoseconds off his reaction time by skipping the shock and excitement when a ball is lobbed his way.

But then Neil Josten came along and Andrew was drawn to him like fly to a honey trap. His scattered thoughts jumped around but kept on landing on Neil Josten, dangerous. Neil Josten, the boy who didn’t add up. Neil Josten, where it didn’t matter if he swung or not, as long as he was close, as long as he was protected from the nightmares chasing him. That was enough.

Then Neil went to the nest. To protect him. ‘If it means losing you, then no.’ Those words reverberated through his head on an endless loop. Andrew did not have friends. Not like that. Not someone who would willingly go through hell, no matter how pointless, just for him. The signals weren’t so clear anymore. When Neil asked that one question, Andrew decided he would finally spell it out loud and clear. ‘That doesn’t mean I wouldn’t blow you.’ And it finally got across to Neil.

Andrew watched as Neil recalculated the world like he was prone to do. He checked the exits out of habit and then he locked eyes with him and Andrew saw something that made his heart beat a little faster, his hands become a little sweaty, his face twitch minutely in a semblance of a real smile.

And then it was gone. Because hope wasn’t something he believed in. Hope was a construct of fools and of people who disliked words for their sound and connotation and not for their life experiences.

When Neil was standing in front of him asking what he was afraid of ‘heights’ came out, but another fear was there bubbling up from the depths. A fear that had blue eyes, auburn hair, and a reckless personality.

And when Neil was on the roof and Andrew leaned in and Neil wasn’t moving and their lips touched and Neil still was not moving to stop him, his heart felt like exploding. But like a tire with slow leak, it deflated and he pushed Neil away.

But Neil kept on coming back and back and back. Until he was gone. And Andrew realized that he was a fool. He made a mistake. He let someone in. He knew better. After Aaron. After Cass. After he was seven and please no longer meant being polite. His emotions were out of hand. He didn’t realize the control he had learned over the course of his life was gone, slipping away slowly until it hit the ground and shattered into a million pieces.

Imagine Texting Justin At One AM

Originally posted by ljaureguis

You tried to muffle your giggle as you sent your boyfriend another meme. He hated when you did this so you make sure to send him stupid ones to annoy him.

Jus Jus: haha good one, can you sense the sarcasm? 

You laughed out loud when he sent you a picture of him with a straight face. It was like one of those ‘when you take a picture on the front facing camera’ pictures but he still looked adorable.

You look adorkable. ; )

You chewed on your lip as you watched the texting bubble icon pop up. It was nights like these that you enjoyed the most. With Justin, your walls were instantly broken down. You didn’t have to be someone else for him, you could just be yourself.

Jus Jus: don’t I always? And you should go to sleep. seriously, do you see the time?

Your eyes traveled up to the top of your screen. It was 1:09 AM but you could've sworn it was 11:56 just five minutes ago. Did you guys really talk that long?

Aww, am I no fun?

Jus Jus: oh no, trust me, you’re fun babe, but it’s a school night

You scoffed as your thumbs made quick work on the keyboard.

You should be the last one telling me anything about a ‘school night’ Justin.

Almost instantly, a picture of him rolling his eyes sent through and you had to hold in your laugh as to not wake up your parents. Text bubbles appeared one after the other as Justin told you that ‘you need to get 8 hours of sleep to properly function in the morning’ and all that crap. 

Justin was a dork and all even though he would never admit it. You sighed in defeat when a yawn escaped your lips. Normally, you would’ve put up a fight but after a day of hanging out with the idiot you called your boyfriend, you were pretty tired

Alright, dad.

Jus Jus: don’t you mean daddy ; )

A few seconds passed before your phone dinged with another message.

Jus Jus:: I love you, don’t let the bedbugs bite

You raised your thumb up to reply but your eyelids were already half-way closed and sleep was taking over. All you had managed to do was mumble out an incoherent “I love you, too” as you fell into a deep slumber with a small smile on your face.

Justin Foley is such a dork.

ONCE UPON A TIME : the reboot
by drew and menelaos

season 5, episode 10 : A Stitch in Time

past : Mary Margaret and Emma return to Misthaven and learn that in their absence, High King Stefan fell ill and died and Phillip and Aurora have already been crowned king and queen. As they give their final goodbyes, Aurora whispers with glee to Mary Margaret that she is pregnant. Emma and Mary Margaret enact the time-jump using Emma’s swan necklace, and they begin to bump their way through the timeline. They witness Snow White’s birth, Mordred’s deceit, Arthur’s death, and Morgan le Fay taking him on a boat to Avalon. They see Regina crowned queen next to King Richard, Red as a young girl visiting her grandmother in the forest, young Snow witnessing her mother’s death, and Regina crowned queen again, this time next to Phillip. They begin to flash faster and faster: Snow and Charming’s famous kiss, the Dark Curse taking over the lands, Emma’s arrival in Storybrooke, Emma kissing Henry’s forehead and restoring the memories, the moment Emma and Mary Margaret jump into the time portal, and then suddenly they come to a screeching halt in the present, where they are discovered at Henry’s playground castle by park ranger Ambrose Geoffrey.

present : Cynthia and Ruby finally go on their first date, much to the delight of Granny. Evelyn, emotionally devastated by the events in the cottage, resigns her position as mayor. Regina and David make amends and bond as they reminisce over Henry’s growth – but Emma and Mary Margaret’s return interrupts the moment, and all thoughts of Regina fall away from Henry when he is reunited with his birth mother and grandmother once again. Regina is exasperated, watching everything slip from her fingers once again, and confronts the only other person who is as broken as she is: Mr. Gold. Both former villains seem to have lost their vigor and their conversation reveals that they intend to take vastly different paths in order to find it again…

[ previously on once upon a time ]

The tales of the earth masterlist.

Myths and legends surround us and our history for all time, and yet it has become so easy to forget what is real and what has been forgotten in the past. Yet now here is an opportunity to travel to the darkest and lightest places up for offer, and explore the shaded edges of imagination. Fantasy au, different scenario for each member.


Jungkook; The Monster

“A castle lies on the edge of the world, quiet and devoid of hope in it’s lonely companionship. And yet it seems to you, that no matter the time the walls seem to have eyes that seem so sad, the air seems to drip with stories of woe that you could never understand. But you intend to find out.”

Taehyung; The Siren

“For centuries it has been said that the water was home to the most cruel of creatures, one that had not an ounce of kindness in its cold body. Children have disappeared, like mist in the night at the hands of such a monster. Yet when it is your time to travel down to the cove, you cannot find the malicious spirit you were told about among the sobbing cries and desperate embraces.”

→  ♥ ϟ  ✖︎ | Coming soon

Jimin; The dreamer

“Every year you weep for the lost months and days of your childhood, bound within the walls you are forced to call your home. And one night, it seemed that your pleas were answered in the form of a shadow curling its hand into yours and herding you into the night with whispers of curiosity.”

→  ♥ ϟ  ✖︎ | Coming soon

Namjoon; The Fighter

“Who could put themselves above gods and ever hope to fly? Dreams and aspirations are cast aside so easily when war beckons its finger, and despite the ache in his heart he was forced to give up his will. And yet soon it seemed that he was high above the clouds, your arms being the only thing that could possibly keep him to the ground where his wishes lay. After all, it would seem that his wings were made of wax, and the sun was happy to loom ever closer.”

→  ♥ ϟ  ✖︎ | Coming soon

Hoseok; The Hider

“The house that you move into is warped and moulded by age, the walls hung with memories you could never hope to understand and life scattered like lost ghosts into the floors.Yet when you are made privy to the world that thrums with life nestled into the meadow that sings every night, you find yourself being dragged into the hold of burning eyes and untold whispers that pulled you to the dark of the night with whispers of truth. And he is the first to catch you in your fall.”

→  ♥ ϟ  ✖︎ | Coming soon

Yoongi; The Hunter

“The village you lived in was plagued by fear, the howls of a monster so terrifyingly near that it was hard to ever let your eyes close, accustomed to glancing behind your back. And when a hunter arrives to offer up his services, you cannot help but feel panic seep into you for a secret that you could never keep.”

→  ♥ ϟ  ✖︎ | Coming soon

Seokjin; The Noble

“Who knew of the man who lay in his castle, draped in golden robes as he watched his people lead through their lives with well placed boredom? There was not a soul that remembered where he came from, or what his intentions were- save for you, who’s eyes were cast wide open and heart racing through the walls when a shadow fell over your slumber.

Coming this summer

Naaah I don’t need help, I am just obsessed, There is no problem in that.

alright, so i’ve got a favorite liminal space that i never see anyone bring up. i’ve only ever found a couple, and i don’t know that they’re very common, so that’s probably why.

scattered around, there exist very nice strip malls in the middle of nowhere. some of them are closer to somewhere than others, but it always feels like they’re the only civilization around for miles in any direction. there’s a feeling like they were put there in anticipation of sprawling suburbs surrounding them. you can’t tell how old the buildings are, but they could be anywhere from a year to a decade old.

a couple of general features:

-the shops sell anything you want, and nothing you need to actually live there

-they are within a convenient distance of major highways, and nothing else

-there are usually more people parked there than traffic on the highway or the amount of people in the stores would suggest possible

-it is always bright and sunny with scattered, idyllic clouds, and yet a little too cold to be comfortable outside, regardless of the time of year

-they may contain stores and food chains that you could have sworn went out of business or weren’t in that part of the country

-they are likely removed from time, in that stopping there doesn’t seem to effect your travel time

-i’ve always wondered how people end up working there, because i’m mostly confident you can’t reach them unless you’re traveling, though to be clear, they’re not intended as rest stops

there’s one i’ve managed to stop at twice while in either pennsylvania or upstate new york. i took pictures because it’s surrounded by nothing but mountains and forests. i thought i saved them somewhere, but i’m not surprised that i can’t find them now.

these places are almost certainly shrines to modern gods. i can’t figure out any other reason for them to exist. they’re inconvenient and don’t sustain life but are exceedingly pleasant. they contain things that you thought were lost. the timestream there doesn’t seem to quite sync up with the rest of the world. it’s the best explanation i’ve got, at least.

  • What she says: I'm fine
  • What she means: Dear Marshall, I know this is a strange way to apologize, but I’m sorry I let Carl name your drink after me. Why didn’t I say something? Gosh, I guess that goes back to my childhood. Did you know that for the first two years of my life, my dad treated me like a cat? Seriously. I wasn’t permitted on the furniture, I had to bathe myself, and I was only allowed to poop in a box. Ironic that this all comes out in a bathroom. A place that for so long I yearned to be. This tiled prison that eluded my saddened grasp was a haven. The unreachable. When I finally did demand a bathroom visit, my dad applauded my moxie. And that’s the only time my father ever said he was proud of me. Maybe that’s why I stole credit for your drink. Maybe that’s why I needed to pour my heart out like this, maybe I wrote this so you’d be in here long enough for a lady to walk in, causing you to freak out and hide in the stall. GOTCHA!! love, Robin (creator of the Robin Scherbatsky)

popotum  asked:

Imagine your immortal!OTP

Imagine person A is a time traveller and person B is immortal. In year 1678 they met the first time and fell in love, though person A knew they couldn’t stay for someone who’d die anyway and person B couldn’t let someone mortal have their heart. Knowing this, B still gave A a silver bracelet, a gift symbolising their love and formed bond. Two month after that, A disappeared because they feared to watch B die, though they would come over every two years, watching B from afar and after 20 years B moved away. A believed them dead by then.
After nearly a century A and B meet again when they bumped in each other on the street. Both are speechless because they thought that their loved ones were already under the earth. Not believing that A is A, B tries to flee, but A grabs their arm and shows them the silver bracelet.
