Laurent bends his legs, pulling his ankles out of direct sunlight and back into the shade of the poolside umbrella. He’s had sunburned feet once in his life, and never plans to repeat it. He throws an annoyed glance at Damen, who is stretched out on the adjacent lounge chair. Damen has spent the last three days turning steadily browner while being very lax about sunscreen.
The villa they’ve rented on the west coast of Santorini has its own pool as well as its own tiny courtyard complete with mosaic floor and fountain. Sunshine off white stone and white paint makes it feel overbright and otherworldly during the day, shimmering with heat and light. Laurent tried for an hour this morning to go over his notes on the Theran eruption and the formation of the caldera, but the heat snuck into his brain, and he can’t make himself mind. He feels looser, and happier, than he ever imagined he could.
The ratings for the show’s finale were unprecedented. With the story of Erasmus and Kallias under their belts, the finale was marketed as an even more shocking twist, and Laurent and Damen have become the new faces of unexpected romance. They’ve been asked to present at the Logies, and to appear on every morning show in the country.
Laurent has never been a celebrity in his own right, nor wanted to. He’s… adjusting.
The most obvious benefit is that Damen’s stock in the eyes of his PR department has shot way, way up, and his father has–after a long talk with both Damen and Laurent, which left Laurent feeling like he’d run a marathon–agreed that Damen will assume control of the company as planned. Theomedes looked like a man who’d already planned the first three years of his luxury retirement and had one impatient foot out the door; he was ready to throw Damen the reins immediately.
Damen promptly turned around and declared that he was leaving the company in the care of his brother Kastor for six months, extending the leave of absence he’d taken to come on the show.
“To do what?” Theomedes demanded.
“This and that,” said Damen, eyes dancing at Laurent. “Expand my horizons. Travel.”

I’m getting real sick of people bashing on Floriana. Like I understand being upset that she’s gotten roles intended for Latinx people (btw Maggie Sawyer is not one such role. The producers assumed SHE was Latina but the role wasn’t specified for somebody of Latinx origin so quit that shit rn) because I AM Latina (Mexican) and it bugs me a little too but she’s doing well in her role as Maggie and she doesn’t deserve the hate that she’s getting so kindly fuck off with that bullshit. It’s annoying af.
if people in my life had decided to shorten my first name Jonathan with John like every normal person does, then in combination with my second name Alexander I would be Lams and i feel like i missed out on something great there…
Yoongi assumes and you make him a deal. He agrees.
Pairing: Yoongi x Reader
A/N it’s smut, my first smut wow. so ye it’s pretty vanilla, since it’s my first i gotta play it safe. but yeah i’ve been wanting to write smut for a while and here it finally is (if I’m gonna post this) and it’s with Yoongi… duh. and ofc it ends with fluff bc who doesn’t love fluff. so, uhm, have fun reading and tell me what you thought of it? It’s my first pls be soft on me lol.btw use protection kids!
You lean into your boyfriend’s chest when the after credits appear on the screen of your television. It’s a friday night and you and Yoongi are sitting in your living room in your apartment, snuzzy snuggled against each other. He came to your house earlier because you had texted him you felt lonely. Not 30 minutes later he was already knocking on your door smiling at you as you open the door. He probably had something else in mind, though, something more heated. Because when he arrived, he had a surprised look on his face seeing you holding multiple DVD cases. It seemed he had assumed wrong and it appeared you just wanted to watch a movie with him. When you heard he hadn’t seen your favourite movie yet, as it was one of the DVDs you were holding, you gasped. You quickly grabbed his hand to drag him to the couch to watch it. He struggled - of course he did - but when you told him you had a proposition he quieted down.
“I promise we’ll do what you assumed I wanted after, but first you’re going to sit still and watch this with me. We got a deal here?” you had asked and Yoongi agreed disgruntledly making you grin and peck his cheek. You knew you had power over him. Your friends never cease to tell you that he’s obviously weak for you. You’ll never deny that you’re proud of it, because you are. Yoongi may look unapproachable to people but he’s actually the softest being. Well, to you at least. To others he could be a jerk, but never to you. You grin to yourself at the thought.
“Did you like it?” you mutter as you lay with your head on his chest and you can hear the calming sound of his heart. He hums a “yeah” and kisses the top of your head lazily. You smile in satisfaction and move your body slightly to be able to softly kiss him on his lips. You rest your forehead against his’, smiling at him softly.
“So, what were you expecting when you got here after I texted you?” You ask him teasingly. He grabs your hips and pulls you onto his lap making you straddle him. You giggle and automatically place your arms around his neck.
“Something more, you know, sexual?” Yoongi offers with a snort and you laugh. Of course he did.
*His pupils roll across his skull as his tolerance began to run short. Joey closes his eyes, massaging the bridge of his nose to remove some of the tension* Bendy. *He firmly spoke, one of his eyes opening to stare down at the clearly pissed off demon* In through one ear and out the other as usual, repeating yourself to expect results. This is all typical behavior from you.
I’m really disappointed in Supergirl right now. I was watching Season 1 last night with my wife and it was just so much better.
I’ll let Cat Grant explain how I’m feeling.
Citizens of National City, this is Cat Grant, live from Catco Plaza. As you all know, I have been Supergirl’s most outspoken champion. So, you can imagine how difficult it is for me to tell you that I and Catco can no longer stand behind Supergirl. I made you trust her. I gave you my word that she was safe, a friend. I was wrong. Supergirl has changed. She is unstable and extremely dangerous. She threw me off of a building last night and threatened my life and… Who knows what else she is capable of? It’s not easy being let down by our idols. Having someone who embodies our heroic ideals helps us believe that we can be heroes, too. Sometimes heroes fall. So, please, for your own safety, stay away from Supergirl. Okay, that’s enough. Turn it off. Play it on a loop. Everyone needs to know.
