#I’m at the start of a migraine rn help
melancholy-pal · a month ago
Text
I have no idea what should I do in my life
I’m 22 next week. My whole life I struggled with anxiety and depression even before knowing what that means. Was unlucky to develop an eating disorder. Endless amount of panic attacks during my school years. I had to drop out of uni because of my mental health, I found a job after that and thought I’ll work on my issues and got back but I was so wrong. I quit that one and then the next again because of my mental issues and during that time I started struggling with my physical health.
I’d faint so much, I’m dizzy almost every day, I have ear ringing and migraines, it affects my vision a lot and no one knows why it’s happening because I’m so young. I get really bad body pains, especially in my arms and back that spread to legs. I went to so many doctors but they seem to be confused.
I hate my childhood and not being able to remember stuff. I can think only of bad things that happened. I know that my parents hate me, they remind me this almost every week. I don’t have a job rn because of pandemic. I took some nail classes because that what I liked, I was going to have a job at my mom’s friends salon but suddenly she ghosted me, later I found out why and it made me so sad.
I’ve been so much more stressed lately. I struggle a lot tbh. I don’t even have anyone to talk to anymore. I accidentally ghost my friends because I have no motivation to do anything. I’m really confused about my relationship with my bf because of some stuff we deal with. I feel like I just need a hug.
I have no idea what I’m doing, I constantly feel like i’m being too late and others are more successful. Most of my childhood friends either have really nice jobs, cars, apartments or they’re married already. And I know most of them get help from their parents with everything, that’s really sweet actually. But knowing that mine trying to kick me out at least once a month, when I do all the housework and cooking, I buy groceries but just don’t have a job.
I’m so tired.

i’m not sure if you’ve gotten this request before (feel free to ignore if u have loll) but could i request how hq boys would help u when ur hungover.... cause i am big time rn LMAO please and thanks <33
Tumblr media
✗ HQ BOYS WHEN YOU’RE HUNGOVER ✗
Tumblr media
the way i ran to my drafts to start writing this omg 🏃🏻‍♀️ ngl it almost made me miss being hungover <\33 anyways- hope you’ll feel better v soon and are taking care of your poor hungover self 😽
Tumblr media
-> timeskip! kita, kuroo, tsukishima, suna, oikawa
-> warnings : mentions of alcohol (for obvious reasons), mentions of throwing up and mentions of food
Tumblr media
— KITA
• this man knows how to handle a hangover better than anyone
• he’s a moderate drinker, but his grandmother’s books contain the cure to everything and he’s more than willing to make you benefit from his knowledge
• he will make you drink these three bottles of water, that bowl of tomato soup and that banana milkshake with a tablespoon of honey. dehydration ? he doesn’t know her
• but kita also knows how important it is to not stay in bed all day, so he’ll insist on having you spend at least thirty minutes outside in the fresh air, most probably in your backyard
• you can refuse, of course. but he’ll take away your cuddle privilege immediately, so~ your choice
• also expect a lot a few disapproving looks,,, because as much as he loves to pamper you, he can’t help but remember the dozens of times he told you you’d had enough to drink last night. obviously you didn’t listen
• i think would disapprovingly care : like- lecturing you under his breath as he sprays essential oils on your bedsheets or tests the temperature of the bath water before letting you in
• remember the cuddle privilege i talked about? yeah, that’s going to be your reward at the end of the day for not being stubborn and docilely following his instructions
• with freshly perfumed bedsheets and his natural body warmth, you’re likely to fall asleep in five second tops. but that doesn’t mean he’s going to leave you, quite the contrary. no, this man will continue to take care of you in your sleep
• and by that i mean belly rubs to make sure your nausea is gone when you wake up, or gentle head massages to make your migraine go away. he might even brush your hair so that you won’t wake up with knots
• he doesn’t even expect you to thank him, because « isn’t that what all husbands are supposed to do ? »
— KUROO
• he’s probably hungover too because he had to finish half of your drinks,,, yet it still wasn’t enough to prevent you from waking up with the biggest headache
• in other words : dimmed lights all day. he might not even open the blinds. and to be honest he likes these kind of vibes
• sure, it feels like your brains are about to explode, and every single part of your body is aching (eyelashes included), but it’s cozy and your minds are too fogged to worry about anything other than getting better- so it’s self care and self care only today
• it’s likely that none of you will feel like eating something, but kuroo’s an athlete : he knows better than to skip a meal, especially when you both feel so weak
• so he’ll sacrifice himself and make the grueling effort of leaving the bed to cook you a little something, nothing extravagant but still enough to reinvigorate the two of you
• and since you don’t have anything better to do, you guys decide to watch the videos you took during the party,,, and slowly come to the realization that you have very few memories of what happened
• « is that you dancing on that table ? » you ask him, pointing at the man who is just a second away from tripping on a napkin
• lifting his shorts, kuroo glances at the bruise on the upper part of his thigh : « ohh- well that explains a lot »
• chances are that, because of his built, kuroo will feel better before you. so the true pampering will come later in the evening
• he’s got vitamins, ibuprofens, blankets, and his arms ready for you. you’re in for the deepest sleep of your life
— TSUKISHIMA
• « i told you so »™️
• you would wake up feeling like absolute crap and he would be eyeing you, standing next to the bed with his arms crossed and eyebrows raised : « how are we feeling ? », even though the answer is pretty obvious
• but he knows that sarcasm won’t get him anywhere so he tries to tone it down (try to)
• you might think he’s not going to do much, but as soon as you step out of the shower he forced you to take (even though you were exhausted), you realize that he did do much
• the clothes you wore last night are already in the washing machine, your new ones (most probably his) are neatly folded on your bed, waiting for you, and he’s cooking an anti-hungover meal that he looked up on the internet
• if he has to study while you’re getting some rest in the bedroom he will put reminders on his phone every 15mn to come and check on you
• and he never leaves the room without lifting the covers up to your shoulders to make sure you won’t get cold
• he also wets a towel and gives it to you to place over your eyes if they’re sore
• but as soon as he’s done studying, he joins you in bed with greatest pleasure. and it’s a good thing that tsukki loves comfortable silences, because neither of you feel like saying anything
• you’re just laying there, letting him keep track of time since you’re too busy enjoying being pampered that much
— SUNA
• blackmail material for YEARS (in addition to the videos and pictures he took of you during the party)
• he turns this into a vlog, you could be half-asleep on the couch and hear him talk to the camera from the kitchen like « so here i am making pasta for this lightweight who threw up all night... i’m still waiting for my boyfriend of the year’s award... »
• but really, he’s just being dramatic. deep down he loves to take care of you when you’re hungover because you get much clingier,,, so he allows himself to be clingier too
• as much as he loves to lay down on top of you, the roles are reversed this time. because being crushed by a 6’3 tall man while you’re hungover is probably not a very good idea
• but before these lazy cuddles, he wants to make sure you’re comfortable : so he’ll remove your makeup (if you wore any) and give you his clothes because he knows you like how oversize they are
• so yes, naps and water are definitely the keywords of the day, but tell him once that you crave one specific food and he’ll immediately go get it for you
• he’s also surprisingly careful with any possible headache, so he’ll keep his earphones on while scrolling on his phone to make sure you can rest in complete silence
• however, at some point he will hand you his phone and have you record a video for your future self. something along the lines of : « hi y/n, this is you from the past. i feel like absolute shit right now so please be more reasonable next time... and don’t let rin get more embarrassing pictures of us »
• and you can be sure that he’ll use this video as a threat next time you’re partying. he would just have to point at his phone from the other side of the room and you would understand what he means
— OIKAWA
• he’s not the person to call if you want to be talked out of partying ever again
• because not only does he spend the entire day praising you highly for the way you looked yesterday, but you also realize that he loves your drunk self (as long as he’s here to watch over you)
• he doesn’t mind you complaining because he’s had a few hangovers of his own,, so feel free to whine about your stomachache/headache all you want
• and if you throw up ? it’s ok, he’s got you. and he’s not leaving your side unless you ask him to
• literally, he spends the entire day babying you. you’re feeling too tired to brush your teeth ? no problem, he’ll have you sit on the edge of the bathtub and do it for you
• same goes for washing your hair or getting dressed : there’s nothing he’ll refuse
• if your head doesn’t hurt too much, he’ll offer to watch a stupid tv show in front of which you can fall asleep without missing anything important
• and he’ll make sure to get the right cuddle position right away because he knows you’ll probably fall asleep very quickly and he doesn’t want to wake you up by fidgeting under you
• also: expect many many scalp massages. and his hands are the softest so they feel absolutely divine
• i think oikawa knows a lot about hydration so he’ll probably make you drink something like sugary water to give you a little boost. and if you don’t trust this drink, he’ll try again with another one until you’re completely hydrated
• and as i said, he’s very supportive,, almost too much : « you finished your glass ! i’m proud of you baby! »

Happy FFWF! What's the first thing you do when a new fic idea pops into your head?
If I'm already listening to music I take the headphones out. Open my computer. Pray for no migraines. Open google docs and discord so I have my collaborators on my server to help flesh out ideas and start typing the gist of the story down.
Characters. What I want to happen. And a couple plot points I want to see in the middle. Then I start talking with my server members if I get stuck on how to make something happen or which direction to take because often I'll have two or more paths that could work for one story but not at the same time.
For example I had an idea for a fic (which I'm writing rn called runaway love) where penny ran away after everyone was brought back. The idea was inspired by the run of penny parker. But then I also had the idea of her trying to run and hide in Europe. Now. I could have done one plot idea or the other but not both because for one of the ideas it involved her home from Richard and Mary and safety deposit boxes. The other was on a different continent.
So I talked to my server members to figure out which I should do first.
Then came the idea of should I keep Penny but I decided I wanted to gender bend a gender bend fic. And how to make it work.
There was the idea of how to title the chapters, I had multiple ideas for and I left it up to a vote.
Runaway Love isn't as plotted out as my main fic. What I have so far was all plotted, I had more plotted before I got hit with the plot bunny curse and someone had to encourage the bunnies. So that story is no longer really plotted out and I need to kill a few story rabbits before it's plotted again. So, too many plot bunnies turned that story from plotted to semi plotted.

i have a migraine rn could you write about spencer giving you forehead kisses and cuddling with you while reading you a story because your head hurts and it’s become a common thing so as soon as he sees you wince and hold your temple, he gets up and grabs a book and drags you under the covers.
(also??? asking him to kiss the pain away and then telling you that sex might help the pain go away so he goes down on u 🙈)
summary: Fem!Reader has a headache and Spencer knows just the way to help.
content warnings: oral (female receiving), implied sex.
i’m sorry you have a migraine, love! he would be so good about caring for you, especially with his own experiences ugh. 
you’ve been having the migraines for a while, now. they started as short, pulse-like pains in the front of your skull, but it’s become consistently unbearable. Spencer was able to figure you out without you saying a word, however: winces and the way you press your fingertips to your temple are pretty obvious. 
the first time it happened, he cited dopamine and chemical rushes as the reason for his remedy of forehead kisses. you’re accustomed to that comfort, now. when you make a face one night while reading in bed, Spencer glances over. 
“hey,” he frowns. you try to clear the pain from your expression when you meet his eyes, but it’s no use. he lifts the edge of the blanket. “come here.”
wordlessly, you let him wrap his arms around you and drag you closer. he smells so comforting, the familiarity easing the edges of the pain while you nuzzle into his chest. the book you were reading lies abandoned in your lap, and he reaches quickly to pick it up and open it to your spot. 
Spencer’s voice is honey smooth, low and clear as he enunciates every word. you like that he sometimes emphasizes weird syllables, makes pauses, has his own way of slowing down despite his brain’s naturally fast processing. 
you love that you didn’t even need to say anything, that he remembers. of course he remembers. he reads for a while and you focus your thoughts on the rhythm of his breathing. the sound of his voice in his chest. he’s everything you want. 
“Spencer?” you murmur as soon as he’s finished reading two chapters. he presses a kiss to the top of your head. 
“yes?”
“can we kiss?” you peer up at him with needy eyes. he smiles softly. 
“sure.” he traces the contour of your cheek before leaning down to meet your lips with his. you turn slightly to deepen the contact until the pain starts to subside. you know it’s only temporary, but any release at this point helps.
“y’know what might actually make you feel even better?” his voice is gravelly. you nudge his cheek with your nose. 
“what?”
“orgasms are proven to help with pain, too,” his fingertips begin to run over your stomach, reaching below your shirt and touching the soft skin. “it might keep the pain away for longer.” 
you swallow at the thought. when you look up and nod, he smiles and gently untangles himself, lays your head down on the pillow and crawls down the length of the bed. he pushes your legs apart. 
“is this okay?” he slides his hands under the waistband of your sleep shorts. you nod. the sensation of his skin on yours, accompanied by the longing, tender look in his eyes, makes you feel instantly ready for him. 
Spencer starts by kissing the inside of your thighs, his lips gentle while they work their way up to where you need him most. you watch in a daze until he finally finds your entrance. he kisses your clit. 
“Spence!” you buck your hips and whine. the sounds of your excitement urge him on and you dig your heels into the mattress as he starts to lick a long, slow strip up your slit. 
he holds your gaze with his own and prays you don’t break it. he loves to watch your irises darken with desire, and the way you pull your bottom lip between your teeth to stifle the moans his tongue is causing. 
as he begins to lap at the wetness between your thighs, you moan softly and grind against his face. his nose is pressed to your bundle of nerves as he dips his tongue inside, feels as far as he can while humming with satisfaction. 
“fuck, Spencer, that’s so good.” you tug his hair to hold him right where he is. your thighs are gripped in his hands to pull you closer to his face. he devours you like it’s the last thing he’s ever going to taste. 
the high-pitched sounds falling from your lips turn him and signal just how close you are to your orgasm. you can feel it approaching ever closer as you arch your back and grab your own tits. 
Spencer pushes your shirt up so that he can see your body while he eats your pussy out, his own hips rutting into the bed with an eagerness. 
“I’m so close...” you whimper, the sound mingling with the breath caught in your throat. he moans loudly against your clit and the vibration, combined with the impassioned eyes he gives your writhing figure, causes you to fall over the edge. 
“shit, shit, shit!” you squeal, panting and working to draw out the waves of absolute pleasure rolling over your senses. Spencer continues to lick and flick his tongue against your most sensitive spot. he’s careful but dedicated, down to the moment when you push his face away in order to recover. 
“oh my god.” you sigh, running your fingers over your temples and relaxing against the bed. he crawls back up next to you and snuggles into your neck. 
“hi.” he greets happily. you can feel his erection pressing into your thigh, but he doesn’t ask you to do anything about it. 
“thanks.” you boop his nose. 
“no need to thank me.” 
“you’re so good at it, though.” 
“thanks.” at this, he blushes. you know Spencer loves being praised, especially for stuff like this. all he wants to do is make you feel good, constantly. 
which is why, once you two fall into a comfortable silence, you rub your hand over the bulge in his pants. he groans softly, bucks into your hand. 
“you don’t need to do that.” he’s breathing differently. 
“I know,” you smile. “but I want to.” 
he’s in for the night of his life.

The April Fools
I spent too much time on this.
Word count- 2177
Tsuzuru says pog, also some swearing
It had started out a normal day. Well, relatively normal, as it was April fools day and of course, pranks were on the rise.
Izumi stood in the kitchen, drinking coffee, hoping that mischief would wait a little while longer.
She could hear the door open and the person make their way to the kitchen. Izumi doesn’t look up though, she could hardly even keep her eyes open. The night before she helped at a nearby theater, which went longer than expected.
“Good morning, Director.”
“Morning…”
“Are you okay? You seem tired.”
“I had a long night last night.” She rubbed her eyes. Looking up she saw that she was talking to… “Kazunari?”
“Yeah?” He looked a little confused.
She thought for a moment. “Oh I get it.”
“Get what?”
“The joke. It’s funny, you got me.”
“I’m not joking though?”
“Come on, the bit’s over.”
“What bit?” He grew exasperated.
Before the back and forth could continue, Masumi entered the kitchen.
“Izumi, he’s acting weird.”
“Who?”
“Tsuzuru. He’s even more annoying.”
As if on cue, Tsuzuru stepped in.
“Hey, Zumi!”
Kazunari sighed. “Good morning, Minagi.”
Masumi looked between the two. 
Izumi began laughing, catching all three of them off guard.
“Oh, okay. That was good. Great dedication.”
“She’s doing it again…” Kazunari said.
“I’m not really getting it…”
“Come on, Usu,” Tsuzuru gave him a light punch on the arm. “She’s having a good time. That’s pogs, right?”
“Stop calling me that.”
“It’s pogs.” He said quietly.
“What’s with all the noise in here?!” Sakyo yelled.
“I’m not entirely sure.” Kazunari answered.
“Kazunari and Tsuzuru are giving a great April fools performance.”
“Huh? I haven’t even gotten to my jokes yet.” Tsuzuru said.
“It has been fun, boys, but you’re not tricking me.” She walked out of the room, still laughing.
“Right, well, if you’re going to be pranking or whatever, do it quietly.”
“Got it, Saki!” Tsuzuru gave double finger gun.
“... what?”
“I’ll be quiet. No cap.” He gave a goofy grin
“What does that mean?”
“It means he’s not lying.” Kazunari translated. “You could’ve just said that.”
“Come on, Kinari-iro.”
Sakyo sighed and left, feeling the oncoming migraine.
Citron and Sakuya passed him, talking about something or another.
“Good morning, guys!” Sakuya greeted.
“Hello! Sweep well?”
“Sleep, Citron.” Kazunari corrected.
“Good morning, Sakun! Hey Kankitsu, do you think we could do a Citrun act today?”
“That would be fun, yes!”
“Stop encouraging him.” Masumi said.
“Well, this has been weird, but I’ve got homework to do.” Kazunari excused himself from the kitchen.
“Seeya, Kinari-iro!”
Citron pulled the other two to the side. “Somethings going on with them.”
“What gave you that idea?”
“What do you think’s going on?”
“Izumi said that it’s just a prank.”
“What’re you guys talking about?” Chikage startled the three of them.
“Tsuzuru’s been more annoying than usual.”
They looked over at him, taking selfies.
“He does seem to be acting strangely.”
“He didn’t even correct me when I messed up earlier.”
“Yeah, Kazunari did.”
“Kage!” Tsuzuru walked up to him and gave him a strong pat on the back. “Didn’t even see you come in! What’s up?”
“Oh, nothing much. Itaru said he wanted to see you.”
“Really? What for?”
“Something about that isekai harem what's-it you guys talked about during the KotR play, I think.”
Tsuzuru laughed. “Right, that. Brb!”
“He did?” Sakuya asked.
“No, it would just be a little hard to talk about him behind his back if he’s in the room. So did he hit his head or something?”
“I don’t think so. He just started saying weird things when he woke up.” Masumi looked at the door leading out to the dorms. “Izumi said it’s a prank,”
“I’m not sure, though,” Sakuya interjected. “He was keeping it up even when we weren’t looking.”
“Maybe it’s a long con.” Chikage suggested.
“Tsuzuru can’t keep a straight face on something like this to save his life.” Masumi said. “Have you seen him off-stage?”
Chikage thought for a moment. “I have an idea.”
~~~
Kazunari had just left the kitchen and headed straight up to his room.
“Good morning, Kazunari.” Muku greeted.
“Good morning, Muku.”
“W-what?”
“I said good morning.”
“Are you mad at me? Did I upset you? I’m sorry if I did.”
“What? No, I’m not mad at all, let alone at you.”
“A pathetic piece of dirt like me doesn’t have the right to put emotional strain on anyone!”
“Whoa, Muku, calm down.” He placed his hand on the quivering boy’s shoulder. “I’m not mad, why would you think that?”
“Because you always call me Mukkun, and I don’t know why you’d stop unless you’re mad at me!”
“What?”
“I’m sorry, I’ll just go so I don’t upset you with my crummy presence.” He quickly left the room, Kazunari watched.
“People are acting so weird today.”
Muku ran out to the courtyard and bumped into Kumon and Juza.
“Muku, what happened?!” Kumon asked as Juza rubbed his back.
“K-kazunari he-” He can hardly form a sentence.
“Kazunari?”
“Did he hurt you?” Juza asked, looking a little angry.
“No, no… it’s my fault. He’s mad at me!”
“What for?”
“I don’t know…”
“How do you know it’s your fault?”
“Why wouldn’t it be my fault?”
“Hey, Uku, what’s wrong?” Tsuzuru knelt down to the crying boy.
“Kazunari’s mad at me…”
“I’m sure he’s not mad at you, he may just be having an… off day.”
“Wait Tsuzuru, what was that?” Kumon asked.
“He’s having an off day...?”
“No, before that, what’d you call Muku?”
“Uku.” He said with a smile.
Muku’s tears grew in intensity. “It’s really cute. Thank you.”
Tsuzuru didn’t entirely understand, but he sounded happier, so he didn’t say anything.
“How ‘bout we get something to eat.” Juza suggested.
Muku nodded and the three of them stood up and slowly walked to the kitchen, comforting Muku the whole time.
Tsuzuru got up and knocked on Itaru’s door.
“I’m busy!” He yelled. A few minutes passed before anything else. “Damn.” He opened the door. “What is it?”
“Kage said you wanted to talk to me.”
“Ka… what?”
“Yeah, about the script you wanted.”
“Well, I didn’t.”
“Oh.”
“Is that all?”
“Yeah.”
“Well then,” Itaru closed the door.
“Seeya, Takai!”
After a moment, Itaru opened the door. “What?”
“I said seeya! Maybe you and Kumo need to get your hearing checked.”
“... give me a minute.”
Itaru looked up to the sky.
“What’re you doing?”
“I’m trying to see if there’s an apocalypse.”
“No, but it has been a little strange today.”
“You’re telling me.” He thought for a moment. “I see what’s happening here.”
“What?”
“You’re fucking with me.”
“No, I-”
“It’s April first. You’re just messing with me. Good job, I will be getting back at you though.”
“Zumi said something like that, too. Is this some big prank you guys orchestrated and me and Kinari-iro are the targets?”
Itaru took in a deep breath.
“Fuck it.” Itaru marched to the kitchen, where he saw the rest of the spring troupe, Muku, Kumon, and Juza.
“Hello, Itaru.” Chikage greeted. “I take it you’ve spoken with Tsuzuru?”
“Yeah, what the hell’s up with him?”
“We aren’t sure yet.” Sakuya said.
“He and Kazunari are acting wired.”
“Weird.” Masumi corrected.
“Kazunari?”
“Yeah,”
Itaru paused, as he had a realization.
“Personality swap.”
“What?”
“They swapped personalities or whatever.”
“So that’s why Tsuzuru’s giving everyone nicknames?” Chikage asked
“And Kazunari has been using our names?” Sakuya continued.
“Seems like it.”
“So Kazunari’s not mad at me?”
“Uh probably not, no.”
“Whatever it is, they’ve gone too far.” Juza said. “He hurt Muku, they shoulda dropped it when they saw that.”
“I’m not sure this is a prank.” Itaru thought out loud. “Like you said, it hurt someone but also, Tsuzuru seemed way too adamant for it to be a prank.”
“There’s one way to find out.” Chikage walked to the door and saw Tsuzuru, taking more selfies by the flowers. “Tsuzuru, could you come here for a minute?”
“What’s up, Kage?” He asked as he strolled up to the door.
“I just wanted to see how things were going.” He gives him a strong pat on the back.
“The lighting’s sups good rn, so I thought I could get some pics.”
“That’s good. Sorry to interrupt that, I just wanted to chat.”
“Cool, I’ve gotta go now! Bye!”
They said their goodbyes and Sakuya moved to Chikage’s side.
“What’s the plan?”
“I planted a bug on him. If he talks like that when he’s alone, we’ll know it isn’t a joke.”
“What do you mean?” Kumon asked this time.
“We act for an audience,” Chikage took out a strange device and started messing with it. “If there’s no audience, there’s no need to act. There.” He set it on the table.
“Kuru!” Tsuzuru greeted Yuki. 
“What is it, Villager C?” He said, not noticing the nickname.
“I wanted to see how you’re doing, Kuru!”
“What?”
“Well, you’re here, so I thought I’d ask.”
“What’re you doing? What’s your game here?”
“No game, dude, just wanted to say hey.”
“Give me a minute.” Yuki entered the common area. “The fucks up with Villager C?”
“That’s what we’re trying to figure out.” Chikage stared at the device.
“Hey Kinari-iro, whassup?” Rang out from the speaker.
“I’m a little busy right now.”
“Uku was kinda really sad earlier. He said you’re upset with him.”
“Oh, really? I should apologize then, huh?”
“Are you?”
“No, I don’t know why he thought that.”
Their talk went on for a little while before it was interrupted by Misumi and Hisoka breaking in through the windows and Chikage at the door. They grabbed the confused men.
“Hey!” Tsuzuru yelped.
“Alright, now it’s time to find out what the hell’s up with them.” Chikage said to Itaru.
“Us?!” Kazunari yelled.
“Yeah, you were acting really weird.” Masumi said.
Kazunari looked flabbergasted, he attempted to gesture around the room to the people who just burst in and grabbed them. There was some struggle on account of the fact that Hisoka had him by the wrists.
“Yeah, not to be judgy, but you guys are the ones being weird if anyone is.” Tsuzuru said, encaptured in what could only be described as a bear hug by Misumi.
“God that’s weird.” Banri muttered from the door.
Izumi walked into the room, sighing.
“You two have been acting atypical all morning.”
“No… I’d say this is pretty standard.” Kazunari said.
“I’d have to disagree…” Tasuku commented.
“So, what, are you saying me and Minagi suddenly became different people?”
“Stranger things have happened!” Misumi said, lifting Tsuzuru a little.
“And we’re supposed to just believe that? It’s absurd!”
“I never thought I’d see the day Kazunari called something absurd.” Tenma said.
“I can’t believe it.” Kazunari looked at his troupemates. “I can see them trying to pull this weird- whatever this is- but you guys?”
“Listen Friendly McExtravert, we’re all as confused as you.”
“I don’t mind it all that much. Mitsu is a really good hugger.”
“Thank you! I love the nickname!”
“I thought you would. You’re so based.”
“Based?” Tsumugi mumbled.
“Please make him stop using internet lingo.” Yuki said.
“And could we do it quickly? I’m tired.” Hisoka said.
“You’re always tired.” Tasuku shot back.
“If you wait a little while longer, I’ll get you some fancy marshmallows.” Homare offered.
“So how do we get them back to normal?” Muku asked. “Or is it impossible, and we’ll have to continue our lives with what are strangers in friends’ faces? How much will change?”
“Muku, you’re spiraling.” Juza said.
“But how do we go about this?” Azuma asked.
“It’s likely that whatever method was used to make them this way, we can work backwards to put them back to normal.” Guy suggested.
“But what made them like this?” Izumi asked. “Masumi, did Tsuzuru do something weird yesterday?”
“No. He went to bed and when I woke up he was talking like that.”
“Anyone else?”
It was the same story, nothing unusual happened the prior day. Izumi thought for a moment.
“What if it happened in their sleep or something?”
“Like what?”
“I dunno. Magic or something. Stranger things have happened.”
“You’re so smart…”
“Magic? Director, I think your imagination is getting a little too wild.”
“I mean, it’s not the first time someone temporarily changed into a completely different person for a strange reason. Remember when Banri put that talisman on Taichi?” Omi said.
“I don’t…” Taichi muttered.
“What happened?” Azami asked. Taichi wasn’t the only one not there for it.
“He was possessed or some shit.” Banri answered. “He was kinda a dick.”
“Sakyo beat him up afterwards.” Juza said.
“That part I remember…”
“Anyway!” Izumi clapped her hands together. “Maybe they’ll be back to normal tomorrow.”
“Well, what do we do until then?” Kazunari asked, finally getting his arms back from Hisoka.
“I don’t know about them, but I’m getting as much footage of Tsuzuru like this as possible.” Itaru whispered.
“Great for blackmail.” Chikage responded.
“Yep.”

The Persuasion Machine (My Hero Academia)
Lee!Bakugou / Ler!Class 1A Girls ⚠️PLATONIC⚠️
(A sequel to “Pure Gold”: read that first!)
Tumblr media
A/N : sorry it took me a while to get this one out! school has been terrible and i’ve been sick with migraines for days but hopefully this is good enough! i’m working on another mha fic rn so hopefully i don’t quit on it lmaoo. hope u enjoy!
Summary : Bakugou begrudgingly attends the girls sleepover Mina has invited him to so she doesn’t blackmail him with incriminating material. When he doesn’t answer one of their gossipy questions the way they wanted, they decide to use a little persuasion to guide him their own way (leading to some interesting results).
Word Count : 3461
REBLOGS ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED!! MWAH <33
-
Bakugou had been dreading today from the moment he agreed to attend this stupid ass sleepover in the first place. Since when did he start caving so easily to puppy-dog eyes of all things?! His friends were starting to make him go soft, and this is NOT something he needs hanging over his head while trying to become the world's number one hero. Especially not from someone who now knows his deepest, darkest secret; he absolutely loves romance anime.
He couldn’t help it, the stories were always so compelling and they drew him in every single time without fail. Sometimes he’d catch himself getting emotional at the worst of the worst shoujos out there, but dammit if he didn’t love a good confession scene, alright?! There’s just something so satisfying about the build-up, the angst, the tension, all of it is just enough to make the stone-cold, stoic future pro-hero shed a few happy tears. He really couldn’t help it. Especially considering he’s been having feelings of his own for someone recently, so that mixed with those heart wrenching scenes..it’s impossible not to cry, okay?!
But now that he’s got someone else who knows this secret about him, he can’t allow it to get out there in the world. Mina is one of his most trustworthy friends, but she’s also the most inclined to gossip. She’s not one to turn away from good blackmail material, and now that she was lying on this pot of gold there was nothing that could turn her away from it, not even good old-fashioned tickle torture like he had already tried. It seemed Bakugou’s real, true, only option at this point was to attend that dumb fucking sleepover and get this shit over with once and for all.
So that’s what he did. Even though he tried his best to ignore the nagging dread building up as the day slowly dragged on, the moment he heard that excited knock on his door at 6 that evening, he knew there was really no escape. He was being forced against his will to have...fun.
With an exasperated sigh, Bakugou trudged from his bed over to his dorm door, throwing it open only to be attacked in a vicious hug by a flash of bright pink. The girl held his arms tightly against his sides as his eyes drooped in annoyance, Mina letting out an excited little squeal as she tired bouncing the boy up and down in her hug.
“Eeeee! I’m so excited, Blasty, you have no idea! Tonight’s gonna be the best night ever!” She giggled giddily, finally letting him go before grabbing his wrist and quickly leading him out into the hall towards her room. He growled at the contact, though didn’t put up any resistance. Better to just get this shit over with and let the little nuisance have her fun, Bakugou thought as they finally reached the door to her room. He could hear chatter from the inside, assuming the girls had been hanging out for a few hours before Mina had decided it was time for her little guest star to arrive. She placed him a little ways away from the door, standing in front of it and facing him with a wide grin. He was taller than the girl, having to look down to her in order to see the bright smile that seemed to be plastered onto her face at all times.
“Okay, so, here are the rules for tonight: don’t be mean. This is a FUN night, I don’t want you ruining it for the rest of the girls, got it?” She pointed an accusatory finger up towards his face. Bakugou only lowered his eyelids in response, obviously annoyed. She sighed, rolling her eyes. “Okay, fine, you can be a little mean, but only because we find it kinda funny sometimes. Just no making anyone cry!”
Bakugou huffed, crossing his arms over his chest and throwing his eyes towards the ceiling. “Fine. No one will cry.”
“Good. Next: actually try to have fun with us! Don’t just sit there all mopey like you’ve done during dorm game nights. Actually try!” Mina entangled her fingers together and held them up to her cheek, giving Bakugou the biggest, most pathetic little puppy eyes the explosive teen had ever seen. “Pretty pleeeeease?~”
“Good god, Pinky, I get the fuckin’ idea! I’ll try, alright?! But if you show that video to ANYONE, so help me god you’ll never see another sleepover for the rest of your damn life!” Bakugou shouted, and though his screams would be terrifying to anyone else, Mina only chuckled in response, throwing up a thumbs up towards her taller counterpart.
“Get ready, Blasty, cause this is gonna be great.”
-
Bakugou couldn’t help it. He was stiff when he first arrived, feeling awkward and out of place. This wasn’t his territory, wasn’t his environment. He was surrounded by giggly girls who wanted him to play their little games and gossip, and it just felt...wrong at first.
And it just kept getting worse.
“Soo...Hagakure...any new interesting developments with Ojiro?” Mina grinned towards the floating pair of pink pajamas rested on a purple bean bag. The other girls all giggled, Tsu even shoving at Mina playfully with a funny scowl on her face. Bakugou knew what they were talking about, and he was not interested in this conversation at fucking all, and for more reasons than just general annoyance.
“I mean, just the same old same old I guess. Not that that’s a bad thing! I’m loving how we are right now, he’s just so sweet and loving and...yeah. It’s going good,” the invisible girl shifted in her seat, and though they couldn’t see her, the smile on her face was blatantly evident in her voice. “Have you guys got any crushes you wanna discuss?”
Jirou’s face turned bright red, though she remained silent and frozen in place. Mina spoke up first. “Nope! Not for me, at least. Still waiting for the day I’m a pro and can finally try to win some with Hawks. God, that’ll be the fuckin’ day,” Mina sighed happily, and Ochacco just giggled and punched her shoulder playfully.
“You won’t get within two feet of the guy before he files a restraining order,” Uraraka said snidely, making the girls laugh. Even Bakugou had to stifle a small chuckle behind his palm.
“Hawks, huh?” Bakugou finally spoke up, leaning his back against the wall and crossing his legs on the bed. He decided the best way to speed tonight along was to engage in their conversation. It couldn’t be that bad, right?
“Ohoho yeah. What, you tellin’ me you don’t think he’s hot?” Mina chided, looking up towards Bakugou from her place on the floor.
“Didn’t say that. And I didn’t say I was shocked either. ‘Course you picked a pro to crush on and not anyone you actually know,” Bakugou said mockingly, but it only prompted a sadistic grin to appear on Mina’s face.
The pink girl quickly popped from her spot on the ground and up onto the bed with Bakugou, Momo, and Jirou, leaving barely any room on the space. “Hey, what the f-!” Bakugou started, before Mina plopped herself cross-legged right in front of his face, and evil look glinting from her eyes.
“Who do you have a crush on then, Blasty?” Mina’s grin was face-splitting, and the look in Bakugou’s eyes gave her everything she ever could have wanted.
“Crush?! Why would I of all people have a fucking crush!? I don’t like people!” Bakugou shouted, though from how close Mina was to his face right now, it was impossible for her to miss the small tinge of blush on his cheeks. She was striking gold again already.
“I don’t believe you~” Mina sung, her two index fingers wiggling at his chest in teasing mockery. “C’mon, Bakugou, you’re so easy to see through! Just tell us and noooo one has to suffer!”
“The fuck are you talking about?! I don’t like anyone, end of discussion, okay?!” Bakugou shoved Mina away from him (not too forcefully, of course, just enough to shove her towards Momo sitting on the pillows). Mina sighed with a smile, shaking her head with tuts of disappointment.
“Y’know, I didn’t want it to have to come to this, Katsuki Bakugou, but you really leave me no choice,” Mina looked around at her friends with a knowing but evil shine in her eyes, and they all perked up with understood smiles, and Bakugou couldn’t help the tinge of fear he felt shiver down his spine. “Girls...I think it’s about time we introduce our guest to the ‘Persuasion Machine.’”
“The fucking what-!? -hey! The hell do you think you’re doing! GET THE FUCK OFF ME!” Bakugou shouted as all the girls pounced on him at once, all grabbing at him for an arm. Tsu, Uraraka, and Hagakure all took his left arm, while Jirou and Momo prompted for his right, each of them holding onto his limbs back tightly enough where he was restrained. Mina plopped herself down on his outstretched thighs, now uncomfortably close to his face.
Mina wiggled her fingers out in front of the boy’s face, and all at once Bakugou understood what was about to happen. This wasn’t just persuasion. This was revenge for last night.
“You’ve got one last chance to talk, Katsuki. Who do you have a crush on?” Mina spoke in a low interrogator voice that would usually be amusing to Bakugou if it weren’t for the fact he was very obviously about to be tortured by tickles.
“NO ONE, PEA FOR BRAINS! LET GO!” Bakugou pulled at his arms, but in all honesty...he chose not to put up that much of a fight. He wouldn’t let the girls know this, of course, but...if he’s here to let them have fun, then dammit he’s gonna let them have their fun, even if that means sacrificing his dignity even just a little. At least it’s these girls and not anyone who’d actually judge him.
“Fine. Have it your way,” Mina smirked, looking towards her friends restraining Bakugou on both sides. “Girls, pin him.”
Before Bakugou could even blink, the girls had him pinned on his back against the bed, now sitting on his arms.He tried to move them, really move them that time and...nothing. Shit. Oh shit. He was actually restrained now. He really couldn’t move at all.
Fuck.
“Pinky, I swear to god if you fucking touch mE-” Bakugou grunted, locking his jaw together when he felt those evil, evil acrylics scribble on his belly. He squeezed his eyes shut tight, tossing his head to the side trying desperately to distract himself from those skittering fingers that never relented.
“Ooh, little ticklish, Bakugou?~” Mina teased, pushing his black tank top up just slightly to reveal his toned but quivering belly. She scratched her nails along his sides, making him grunt out a giggle much to his dismay.
“NO! I’m nohot!” Bakugou giggled as her index finger scratched right below his belly button, his face twisting up in a smile he absolutely despised. “FUCKIHIHING QUIT IHIHIT!”
“Wow, he must be really ticklish. He broke pretty fast,” Tsu spoke bluntly, and though she was only rationalizing the situation, her words somehow felt so teasing to him in the moment, making his giggles go even higher pitched than before.
“Right? Mina’s barely touched him and he’s already giggling,” Jirou chuckled from her side, her eyes never leaving the giggling boy below her. “Can’t wait to see how he reacts when she really gets going.”
Without warning, Mina began kneading her thumbs into the sides of Bakugou’s belly. The explosive teen threw his head back in mirth, cackling and just barely kicking his legs out behind her.
“NAHAHA! STAHAHAP! FUHUHUCK YOHOHOU!” Bakugou spat out between his cackles, prompting Mina to gasp in mock shock.
“Well I never, Bakugou! Is that really how you would speak to your bestest friend in the whole wide world?” Mina moved her fingers up towards the bottoms of his ribs, sending him into a whole new wave of giggles and cackles, digging his heels into the bedsheets. “Aww, are your ribs sensitive, Blasty? You real ticklish here?~” Mina pinched at his bottom ribs quickly, and Bakugou was hysterical.
“GAHAHAHA! NOHOHO! I’M NOHOHOT! QUIT IHIHIT!!” Bakugou laughed, tugging at his arms restrained by the girls on top of him. “MINAHAHAHA!”
“Oh my god! He never calls me by my actual name! We’re actually getting through to him!” Mina shouted in excitement, slowing her tickles til she was just resting her nails on his ribs in teasing warning. He breathed heavily at the relief, but his cheeks were flushed in embarrassment and he only opened one eye to look up at his interrogator. “You ready to talk yet? Cause I know there’s gotta be a love interest in that mean little head of yours somewhere!”
Bakugou growled up at her through bared teeth, still breathing harder than he wanted to be. “Fuck...you…” He grumbled at his interrogator, clenching his fists in anticipation as he felt those nails just barely start to move again. They moved at an agonizingly slow rate, making him squirm but not yet giggle.
“Maybe we’re not being mean enough. Jirou?” Mina looked up towards the grinning purple-headed girl in front of her, who already knew what she had to do.
“With pleasure, Mina,” Jirou chuckled, extending her earphone jacks down towards Bakugou’s exposed armpits, just barely letting them touch the bare space. Bakugou’s eyes widened in excited fear at the sensation, his body jerking involuntarily.
“NO! Fuck, no, wait!-”
“You wanna talk?” Mina asked, nodding her head at Jirou, alerting the girl to begin moving her jacks in his underarms. She just barely tickled the area teasingly, but he was a puddle of giggles in no time. His teeth were clenched shut and eyes screwed tightly closed, but the high-pitched, breathy giggles that made his chest shake were unmistakable.
He shook his head in answer to her question, before barking with loud laughter as Mina dug into his upper ribs right below where Jirou continued her teasing onslaught of tickles.
“NAHAHAHA! STAHAHAH-” Bakugou cackled, his words getting lost in the mess of laughs and shrieks as the girls continued their torment on his sensitive body.
“Aww, he’s so ticklish! I really didn’t expect this from him to be honest,” Uraraka cooed, using one of her free hands to scribble one nail down his exposed neck on her side. Bakugou let out a surprised squeal, scrunching his head down to shoulders, effectively trapping her finger in the terribly sensitive area.
“GAHAHAHA FUHUHUCK! QUHUHUIT! I SWHEHEAR!” Bakugou screamed with his own aggressive form of pleading, kicking his legs out in playful agony.
“All you have to do is say one little name, Bakugou~” Mina teased, her right hand staying to squeeze at the hypersensitive spot on his ribs, while moving her left to down to vibrate her index fingers into his very lower rib, the exact spot and method he had used on her the night before.
Bakugou lost his mind.
“FUHUHUCK NO PLEHEHEASE! STAHAHAP IHIHIT! GAHAHA SHIT NOT THEHEHERE! NOT THAHAHAT!” Bakugou screamed, bringing his knees up towards Mina’s back in a desperate attempt to curl up, before resorting back to his hysterical kicking like before.
“Tickle tickle, Blasty~” Mina cooed, turning the cackling boy beneath her a bright shade of red.
“Oh, he’s blushing!” Momo awed excitedly, pointing down at the boy’s face.
“NO I’M NOHOHOT!” Bakugou howled, squeaking when the finger Momo used to point began wiggling in his pit along with Jirou’s jack. He threw his head back in mirth, shrieking and cackling at the overwhelmingly ticklish sensations on his body.
“Somebody can’t handle being teased, huh?~” Hagakure pointed out.
“Nope. Poor thing’s gonna break in a minute, I promise you,” Mina spoke as if Bakugou wasn’t even there to listen, which only added fuel to his flustering fire. “So you ready for a break, Explosion Boy?”
“YEHEHES! GOD FUCK PLEHEHEASE!” Bakugou pleaded, gasping for air when all the ticklish sensations stopped at once. Tired, breathy giggles tumbled from his lips, his chest rising and falling in giddy exhaustion. “Fuhucking hell…”
“Crush, Bakugou. C’mon,” Mina crossed her arms, only resulting in Bakugou to roll his eyes.
“Is it that big of a fucking deal?!” Bakugou groaned, jumping with a yelp when he felt a single finger poke his belly button, “FUCK OKAY, OKAY! NO MORE! I’LL FUCKING TALK!”
“Finally,” Jirou muttered, chuckling when she saw Bakugou slightly blush from his spot under them.
“Just...this can’t...this can’t leave this damn room, you got that shitfaces?!” Bakugou’s insult wasn’t laced with his usual fiery aggression, and the girls knew he was serious.
“Bakugou, you would be surprised by the extensive list of secrets that have yet to leave these sleepovers,” Momo placed a non-tickly hand on his shoulder comfortingly, and she could feel the boy deflate relaxingly under her touch.
“Seriously! Nothing leaves this room, Blasty,” Mina gently grabbed Bakugou’s chin, turning his head to face her. His eyes finally met hers, and she nodded. “Nothing.”
Bakugou rolled his eyes, again refusing to make any eye contact with the girls. “Fucking fine...but not because I want to…” he sighed roughly, shutting his eyes tightly before lowering his voice into a whisper that was just audible enough for the girls to hear. “It’s Kirish-”
“YES! I KNEW IT!” Mina threw her hands in the air with an excited screech, making Bakugou jump a little from surprise.
“I kinda thought the same thing, kero. Just wasn’t positive,” Tsu spoke with a finger on her chin before gently climbing off the boy. The other girls followed, and once he was finally free he pushed himself back to his spot against the wall, bringing his knees to his chest to lay his arms on top.
“So fucking stupid...why did you wanna know that shit so bad anyways, huh?!” Bakugou still couldn’t make complete eye contact with any of the girls out of embarrassment.
“Just thought it would be cute!” Mina smiled widely, before turning to face all the girls again. “So, anybody up for Just Dance?”
-
“Aw, really? You’re turning in already?” Mina whined up at Bakugou who was already making his way towards the door.
“Pinky, it’s 1 in the goddamn morning. I’ve already been tickled to death, played Just Dance, painted Kermit’s fucking nails, watched a shitty-ass horror movie, AND told you my who my stupid fucking crush is; I think I’ve got the whole damn sleepover experience,” Bakugou grunted before turning his body back towards the door before pausing his hand on the knob. “Actually, uh...come out here a minute, Horns. Gotta ask you something.”
“Already told you once, Blasty, they aren’t horns!” Mina said as she got up from her spot on the floor and over towards the door with Bakugou. “I’ll be back guys!”
“Alright. Night Bakugou!” Uraraka waved at the pair with a wide smile. All the other girls said their goodnights as well, Bakugou only nodding in response.
The pair made their way into the dark, quiet hallway together, shutting the door behind them. “So what’s up?” Mina asked in a whisper.
Bakugou pinched the bridge of his nose with a sigh. “How...how did you know?”
Mina’s brow quirked. “What?”
“You said you knew I liked him...how?”
Mina couldn’t help but smile. She shrugged. “Pretty obvious, Blasty. He’s the only one you tolerate. I used to think it was just cause you respected him, but when I found you watching that romance last night, it all just kinda made sense,” Mina chuckled, enjoying the slightly embarrassed silence Bakugou gave her in response. That was before Mina gasped suddenly.
“Oh goodness, I completely forgot! I’ll delete it right now, promise!” Mina took out her phone, when Bakugou made a small confused noise.
“Huh? Delete what?” the boy asked.
“The video I took of you. Y’know, the whole reason you came here tonight?” Mina turned her phone around to show Bakugou the clip of him crying at the screen of a romance anime, which made the boy blush in the dark.
“Oh, yeah,” Bakugou huffed. “You, uh...you do that.”
Mina just giggled before deleting the video for good. “Goodnight, Bakugou.”
“Yeah, whatever,” Bakugou rolled his eyes with a small hint of a smile, poking her once in the tummy. “Night.”
Mina watched as Bakugou trekked his way back to his room, and couldn’t help but smile. She knew, without a doubt, that that explosive kid with no friends…was definitely her friend.

Tumblr media
full masterlist // part two
“Guys, I really shouldn’t,” Hoseok laments.
“Why not?” Jimin whines from his sprawled out position on Hoseok’s aging leather sofa. “It’s been weeks since you’ve come out with us.”
Hoseok shrugs. “I’ve just been… busy,” he finishes lamely.
“Doing what?” Jungkook challenges from the kitchen, his voice barely carrying over the low hum of the open refrigerator.
“Okay, I guess I haven’t been doing too much. I just haven’t been in the mood? Life is just a lot right now,” Hoseok says as he picks at the fraying carpet on the floor. He really should get a new one.
“So, let us help you feel better!” Jimin rolls off the sofa, narrowly missing Hoseok’s head with his legs and keeping his leather pants intact. “A night out dancing with your best friends. Maybe a few drinks. You don’t even have to bring anyone home if you don’t want to.”
Hoseok is still iffy on Jimin’s proposal. Usually, he’d be the one encouraging his friends to enjoy a night out on the town but starting his new job at the architectural firm downtown a few weeks ago had really taken its toll. He knew that he’d have a lot to learn when he started but he didn’t think it’d be this much, the new programming and drawing systems much more sophisticated than what he’d remembered during his undergraduate matriculation. Hoseok spent much of his free time practicing his skills, exhausting himself late into the night. All he wanted to do was rest but it was proving to be challenging after his friends showed up on his doorstep tonight, demanding he join them.
“I don’t know, Jimin.”
“You don’t have to know anything. Look, if you aren’t having a good time by midnight, I’ll call you a cab home myself,” Jimin offers. “And Jungkook will buy you your first three drinks,” he tacks on after seeing Hoseok’s unwavering expression.
“Hey!” Jungkook exclaims from the entryway.
“It’s the least you could do, Jungkook. You’re literally eating him out of house and home right now,” Jimin says, pointing to the roll of kimbap Jungkook has in his hands.
“You can’t drink on an empty stomach,” the younger one counters.
“You ate an hour ago.”
“Fair enough,” Jungkook concedes. “Get dressed, Hobi. Drinks are on me,” he finishes around a mouthful of food. Jimin beams, turning to Hoseok.
Sighing, Hoseok reluctantly drags himself to his feet. “Fine. But you’re buying me drinks and dinner. Nope. I don’t want to hear it,” he says, holding up a finger. “Give me ten minutes.”
“Yes!” Jimin cheers as Hoseok heads to his room.
Twenty five minutes later, the three young men arrive at Antarri’s. Known for its strong drinks and booming bass, Antarri’s had become their regular stomping ground. It was safe to say a few other patrons recognized them in the dark; the trio’s dance reputation preceded them. On any given weekend the establishment would be flooded with young people ready to let loose their frustrations. The proximity of the city’s two major universities being just over a stone’s throw away may also help.
“Okay! Shots first!” Jimin yells over the incessant chatter. Hoseok shakes his head but follows his friend deeper into the club.
“What should we get?”
“Nothing too crazy -” Hoseok starts.
“Tequila!” Jungkook interrupts, waving his arm frantically for the bartender’s attention. Both Jimin and Hoseok blanch at the suggestion. “What? I’m buying. I should get to choose.”
Jimin shrugs. “He is buying.”
Hoseok rubs his forehead, already feeling the splitting migraine he’d have tomorrow morning. Alcohol never seemed to agree with him and he’d learned many times what pushing his limit did to him. Still, he doesn’t protest when Jungkook orders, “Your finest shots of tequila, my good sir.”
Maybe the night would pass by faster this way.
“Okay guys. What’s the game plan?” Jungkook asks around a mouthful of lime.
“Just have fun. If you’re leaving, send a text will you? I don’t want another repeat of last time,” Jimin huffs and sets his shot glass down on the counter.
“I wasn’t even gone for that long!”
“You came back the following evening missing your shirt and a shoe, Jungkook,” Jimin frowns.
“Okay but -“
“Guys,” Hoseok interjects. “Not the time.”
“Right. This is about you, Hobi. We’re going to have a great time. And you -“ Jimin points his finger at Jungkook.
“Yeah, yeah, yeah. I’ll text the chat that I’m alive. Let’s go!” Jungkook says, pushing off the stool and heading into the crowd.
Hoseok shakes his head at his younger friend. He worried about his safety sometimes.
“You sure you’re up for this?” Jimin checks in.
“Yeah, yeah. Go have fun. I’ll see you in there,” Hoseok responds. Nodding, Jimin pats him on the arm before setting off.
“Remember, I’ll call you a cab if you aren’t having fun,” he calls over his shoulder and then disappears.
Moving over to a less crowded part of the bar, Hoseok leans against the wall. Already his shirt is starting to stick to his skin. The music blares at an obscene level he feels in his bones and he welcomes the feeling.
Though an architect by trade, Hoseok knew his way around a dance floor. He wasn’t captain of the university’s dance team for no reason. Music was a language Hoseok translated with his body, each syllable corresponding to a particular movement as he listened to each rhythm and rhyme. Closing his eyes, he lets it speak it to him.
It doesn’t take long for him to get lost in the feeling. Limbs moving freely, Hoseok glides across the floor easily. He’s not concerned with the curious onlookers as he grooves to one of Billboard’s latest bangers. A small crowd has started to form around him but Hoseok ignores them as he spins through a move. Then, he sees you.
His body sputters through the movement until he slows to a gentle rock, eyes trying to focus on you through the pockets between people’s heads. You aren’t looking at him. Too engrossed in your own movement as you vibe with the music. Hoseok almost feels as though he’s watching himself dance. Intrigued, he moves closer.
He’s pretty sure he’s never seen you here before. Granted he doesn’t remember every face he sees but Hoseok is positive he would remember you because of the way you move. Blinking, he feels like he’s in a trance as he watches you turn, your hips swaying in time with the beat. Hoseok realizes he’s not the only one watching you. A few other guys have gathered but you ignore their presence, favoring to dance alone. Hoseok chews his lip. Did he even have a chance?
The music changes and Hoseok watches you change your movement to match the tempo seamlessly. He smiles. He would do exactly the same. Smooth RnB filters out over the sound system and Hoseok calms his beating heart, finding his own rhythm again as he slips back into his translation. When he turns, he makes eye contact with you, a small smile on your lips as you regard him. He’s pretty sure it’s the alcohol that makes him bold enough to take a step towards you.
Though you don’t move closer, your eyes don’t leave Hoseok’s. A silent exchange happens between you as you continue dancing and Hoseok matches your movements while maintaining his distance. Hoseok nearly holds his breath as you tentatively step closer. If he were to reach out, he’d surely be able to touch you. He doesn’t though. The two of you continue to dance in front of one another, though not with each other as the song changes.
When you turn - back towards him and continue dancing - Hoseok isn’t too sure of what to do. He doesn’t want to impose and ruin your night but he sure as hell would love to dance with you. He takes another tentative step forward, the space between you what chaperones at prom would call encroaching on dangerous territory. Still, he doesn’t touch you though he’s sure you can feel his breath dance across your skin.
It’s you who makes the final move.
He feels your fingertips brush against the outside of his thigh until your fingers wrap around his and place them on your hip. Jeans slung low on your waist, Hoseok’s thumb rests against your bare skin. He lets his other hand settle on the outside of your thigh, his touch light so not to scare you.
Chest against your back, Hoseok matches his hips with yours, the swell of your ass pressed tightly to his crotch. When you curl your arm around the back of his neck, fingers splayed in the hairs at his nape, Hoseok squeezes you in reflex. The heat of Antarri’s only grows worse as you continue to dance and another small crowd gathers to watch you.
Hoseok has never felt so at ease dancing with another human being. He feels like you’ve been partners since you were three and took classical ballroom together for eighteen years. You read his movements and he reads yours as you trade the role of leader and follower back and forth. In all honesty, Hoseok doesn’t want the night to end, especially when you hit a particularly dangerous move - bending at the waist with your hands on your knees, the push back firm as his hand ghosts your back. He has to stifle a groan at the sight, more than a few ungentlemanly thoughts surfacing in response.
Spinning you around, Hoseok gazes down at you as he slots one of his legs between yours. A gentle smile crosses your face and you rest your hands loosely around his neck. Hoseok gently brushes your damp hair from your forehead. You don’t look away as his hand comes to rest under your jaw. He watches your tongue swipe against your bottom lip as he wraps his arm around -
“Y/N!”
The moment is broken at the scream of what Hoseok assumes is your name.
“Y/N, come on! We have to go! Code Blue!” Hoseok loosens his hold on you as you step away. Before either of you can utter a word, your friend is pulling you through the crowd and away from him. Over the din of the music, he faintly hears you call a “Sorry!” as you disappear.
Stunned, Hoseok stands in the middle of the crowd as your figure slowly becomes lost in the sea of swaying bodies. He feels like he’s just stepped out of a sauna, the trance you placed him in lifting as people start to fill in the space around him now that the show is over. Hoseok rubs his face in frustration. How could he have let you leave like that? How was he supposed to find you?
“Hobi! Hey Hobi!” Hoseok turns at the sound of his name to see Jimin elbowing his way through the crowd. “Hey, are you okay?”
Sighing, Hoseok nods.
“Okay,” Jimin says wearily. “Do you want to leave?”
“No, it’s okay. Jungkook still owes me two more shots. I gotta collect.”
Jimin grins. “That’s the spirit! Come on, let’s go.”
Tossing one last longing look to what was supposed to be a promising night, Hoseok follows his friend to the bar to forget what could have happened.

in regards to what you pointed out a few posts ago, ngl one of my least favorite fandom things is when they make Kaminari the Har Har Stupid Joking ADHD Bi Playboy Who Is Never Serious Trope. like, he's very smart, 'worst in ___ area of a UA course' is very impressive and I don't remember if it even said that or just that he was studying with some other students, worried about his grades overall, calls himself stupid with implied insecurities about it, and didn't think he was very smart compared to the other people in the course. quirk overuse makes him loopy, incoherent, and think everything's funny. and yeah, he's a bit of a flirt and made a few perverted comments and actions that he clearly didn't think through that well. I'm pretty sure he's not ever stated to be bi in the manga because it was written by a coward, so I think people should think more about why they're associating and pairing together the idea of "hot flirty playboy who if legally able would sleep with everyone he meets" with emphasis or joke in the captions of whatever the content is on him being bi. I don't think this is inherently bad, even put together, but the execution feels kind of :/ and shallow. and I mainly just wish they'd pause to consider if there's any reason (subconscious or intentional) why one of those makes them think about the other, and at the very least lean back to see if they're blatantly making those traits centric around each other and tweak how they're showing them a little. Part of this is also because it's basically his fanon sexuality, but then they stick together "oh he's bi and everyone thinks that" and "he's made flirty or perverted comments and actions in canon at some point" and then mentally exaggerate and have this Canon Image of him as *waves hand at above* and I don't think that's happening consciously in most cases but. again. Cookiecutter Bi Party Playboy Who's Made a Date Offer to Everyone In The Building. not a flirty Person or a Playboy who is bi and flirts with more than one genders
I myself headcanon him as adhd and while the exact sexuality depends on my mood I think of/have him as bi in a lot of my content, but it's the same thing with why non adhd people see how he acts and label "adhd!" Especially about comprehension speed and derpy acting and intelligence and attention span jokes/tropes. Again, not bad in and of itself, but the specific parts of his behavior that make them think he's adhd, or that they start making jokes about or Ha Ha ADHD'ing, or that they think is why we project ADHD on him, (which they aren't necessarily wrong about, but like right in a really disrespectful look at how funny this is oh look squirrel way that's only funny when adhd people are doing it and it isn't all mocking like that) when they see other people calling him adhd, are the wrong ones, I think, and it shows in their characterization of him.
I'm not saying that any of those traits are bad in a character, but as a queer adhd girl with very high annual test scores and Gifted Kid Intelligence but extremely poor grades, focus, and brain damage (admittedly nothing like his, it was a longterm passive thing that mainly just made me have a Lot of Really Bad headaches, and closest thing it did to me was make me sluggish and emotional on bad days and also techincally have the potential kill my language bit if left untreated or the surgery messed up, which it didn't, and it won't be a problem again. but even after explaining that it wasn't cancer or any sort of tumor, and after seeing it do very little at all to affect my behavior outside of irritability and performance, because y'know, constant migraines, gone after the surgery but this was before that, Certain People I Was Vaguely Kind Of Acquaintances With started to treat my like I was a fragile glass thing going to to drop dead and revive myself speaking like a comic relief cartoon crazy person at any moment which was. patronizing.) I've since had surgery for, the way the fandom combines them into stereotypes and portrays them really just rubs me the wrong way- "Flirty Bi(tm) Playboy" "Har Har ADHD Can't Focus Or Get Things After They're Explained To Him, He's Still Confused And An Idiot" "Stupid Person With Brain Damage Who Can't Take Care Of Or Think For Themself And Acts Stupid And Funny For People To Laugh At" which tbh is super ableist even and especially when people irl do fit that description, and also reminds me of the Autistic Person Freaking Out And Being Dramatic sense of humor. And I know it's not helped by canon, because it done for comic relief and to limit his powers, but explored more I think it as a limitation could have been used way more interestingly than canon did and also call me biased but that quirk induced brain frying sounds at least as concerning as Izuku's quirk's backlash.
And it's a shame!! Because he's so much more interesting than that! Instead, the fandom gives me the Cookicutter Funny Bi ADHD Flirt Who's An Idiot and I am sad about it.
tbh it reminds me of what happened to percy jackson, esp with the ADHD Idiot Trope thing. which sucks because apparently it originated in the author making up stories around characters like his adhd and dyslexic kid inspired by Greek myths to tell him after running out of actual myths because it was his special interest and he wanted more. and then the series got kind of all over the place and the fandom processed that the adhd and dyslexic main character who does dumb things sometimes but is very combat smart and great at strategizing and leading gets bad grades and has trouble focusing and has, y'know, adhd, and made him the ADHD Idiot and erased his Gifted Kid girl friend's traits and ADHD and dyslexia into No Nonsense Calls Him an Idiot And Thinks He's Stupid And Has To Tell Him What To Do And Manage His Life For Him and honestly that just kind of sucks and it reminds me of what happened to fandom Kaminari. and now that I think of it people have jirou like that around him a lot too.
im fine with you answering this publicly if you want or have something to add but probably tag as ableism and maybe a biphobia mention content warning for people who don't have the energy to deal with thinking about those kinds of negative things rn because I kind of Went Off About It
I love this! Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and experiences 💚(and double thank you for tag suggestions)💚
I couldn’t agree more that a lot of fandom has messed up Kami’s character, which is why I’ve kinda been posting more about him cause he’s just stuck in my head.
I think a lot of fandoms have trouble with characters like this, people have a hard time with duality in characters and fast/fun posts are easier to make if you flatten a character down.
The did it to Kami, they did it to Percy, they did it to Ron Weasley, they do it to Thor, the list goes on. If being the Smart One ™️ isn’t your thing and you can be goofy than you get pigeonholed into the idiot trope.
I feel for Kami a lot(probably because I have adhd/brain damage too)
It sucks when you’re smart but it’s not the traditional, measurable kind of smart(even if by national comparison Kami technically is).
I got terrible grades growing up, and I pretty much got the absolute lowest gpa you can get and still graduate. But absolutely no one would have known if I didn’t tell them, because I’m not dumb.
(It’s okay if you are “dumb”, I love me a head empty just vibes friend. You’re 100% valid, stil worthy of joining discussions, and should be listened to and taken seriously. This just isn’t about that tho)
I joke sometimes that I’m clever and witty but not smart, because that’s exactly what it feels like.
I have lots of thoughts and ideas that I think I articulate pretty well, I am excellent at finding the humor in things and expressing it in a way that’s funny to others too, and there is almost zero problems I can’t find a work around. And the people in my life love it, and they love to use it.
But eventually everyone in my life finds out that I’m not smart. They see the way I have to pause to Google how to calculate a tip, that I don’t know the name of all 50 states or even where to find them on a map, or I legitimately just can not spell (if you ever see a post where it looks like I used a weird word choice it’s probably because I tried 4 times and autocorrect+Google couldn’t help me and voice to text wasn’t an option)
No one ever questions my intelligence until they find out about my adhd and/or catch me struggling with it. After the mask comes off it’s like they can’t even hear me anymore, nothing I say could be true or matter because I’m now just the goofy accident prone spacy girl. My family literally calls me Spacy
And ya know what sometimes I just let people think that because it’s easier, it’s easier than explaining that I’m dyslexic and that I didn’t have a single geography/history clas until 10th grade and shocker the capital of Iowa doesn’t come up much by then. And it’s easier for me to laugh off losing my keys again than dwell on the fact that sometimes it feels like I’m losing my marbles.
And I wouldn’t be at all surprised if after this post I get a lot more “fact checkers” and push back on anything else I post.(not talking about people who want to genuinely engage,y’all are always welcome, I’m talking those people who don’t wanna look it up themselves but no longer trust me to know what I’m talking about)
Kami is a sweet brilliant boy. He’s in a nationally high ranking school, he loves the weather channel, he’s careful about his quirk that could easily hurt his friends in combat, he has a very high emotional intelligence level, he wears dorky shirts with electricity puns on them, and he pays attention to his friends and remembers a lot of little things about them.
He wants to be a hero and he takes that seriously, and the series has tried time and time again to tell y’all that smiling and laughter are an important part of that. Kami excels at this part! So what if his history grades don’t rival the top of the class, the top 5 students would struggle hard to do what Kami does.
Iida can’t relax, Momos rather shy, Todo struggles with social cues, Midoriya is canonically not funny, and jfc where to even begin with Katsuki. I’m certain they’ll all grow up to be excellent heros in their own right, but none of them are going to bring the level of joy and camaraderie that Denki can. You can’t test that into someone.
Kami also just notices people differently and has any easy way of joining in with them, he doesn’t struggle approaching Katsuki or Shinso. Sure he doesn’t hit the the nail on the head the same way Deku does but he’s the only one who has the guts and skills to try. Also he’s not that kinda friend, he’s not looking to a save these guys but pal around with them
I think Kami 100% realizes what a special case and tough nut to crack Bakugo is, I don’t think he’s just careless or too dumb realize his life’s at stake or whatever.
I think he’s purposely testing Bakugos boundaries all while trying to not be a threat to Katsukis actual ego and calling Bakugo out when he needs it in a way that not to serious. Kami knows how to be just goofy enough that he’s approachable. He’s also keyed in that the way to Bakugo is through Deku, meanwhile everyone else is stuck believing the opposite.
Kami also realized how important music is to Jiro and saw an opportunity to let her display her skills and combin the two worlds she lives, and he wasn’t afraid to get some back lash from her for it.
Like Deku Kami isn’t afraid to be uncomfortable. You really can’t teach that level of social ease, you can teach the posture and feed people a couple of lines but it’ll never hit the same. Funny approachable people have spent a lifetime learning the craft, usually out of necessity.
It’s actually what gives me the biggest adhd vibes from him, because adhd is (speculated to be) a dopamine deficiency disorder. People with adhd are constantly trying to raise their dopamine levels, and that means looking for praise and reward and nothing makes the human brain light up faster than postative human connections.
Adhd children struggle a lot with connecting with peers and often find making people laugh a fast way into people’s circles and makes it more likely people will overlook being interrupted or spaced out on.
Also adhd people are pretty much forced by their own brain structures to be genuine in all they do, low dopamine levels make it very hard to do things you don’t enjoy because there no promise of dopamine from the activity and you don’t have enough to spare, plus impulsiveness makes it really hard to not show when you do or don’t enjoy something.
I agree that Kami is also painted as overly perverted at times, he’s a little flirty but in a fun casual way but it’s not the foundation of his personality and it’s really mellowed out over the course of the series.
And while I subscribe to the bi hc from his interactions with Jiro and Shinso, we should all be very mindful that we don’t lump these characteristics together. The are separate facets of his personality that are not dependent on each other in anyway.
Kami deserves all the respect and love, I can’t wait to see our electric king again 🖤⚡️🖤

Chapter List
a/n: sorry for taking so long, school is a bitch and my mental and physical heslth is shit rn
Likes/Reblogs/Comments are appreciated!
The scorching heat from the sun made working unbearable, especially when the work was hard labor. Mina grumbled a bunch of angry nonsense under her breath, Jack and Tommy shot each other a look. “Should we try to cheer her up?” 
Tommy dropped the logs in his arms, raising his eyebrows up at Jack, “Go ahead, you might not live long enough to do so.” 
Jack, seeing this as a challenge, confidently brushed off his hands and strolled over to the woman. Before he could speak, Mina already met his gaze with a sharp glare, a warning sign if anything. Jack swallowed down the lump that appeared in his throat, “So, nice weather we’re having today?”
“Fuck off, Jack.” 
Jack’s mouth hung open then clamped shut, Mina refocused on the construction at hand, acting as if that interaction never happened. 
Tommy bit his tongue when Jack scurried back to his post, the boy proceeded to shoot looks at him continuously, rubbing salt in the wound. “Stop it, Tommy.” 
“I told you.”
“I know, Tommy.”
“I just think it’s really funny how-”
“Get back to work, Tommy.”
“Oh c’mon! You aren’t really going to get all serious now are ya Jack?” Tommy teased while picking up a piece of stone. 
“Hm? No, I just think we should get back to work. If we work hard enough then we should finish by the end of today.”
Mina made a sound, agreeing with Jack. “Exactly, no time to rest for us.” 
Tommy puffed out his cheeks in annoyance, going back to work in the loud silence. He occasionally shot looks at his sister who was working diligently, so concentrated, clearly deep in thought. 
Her brow was angled down, her lip drew into a tight line. “Mina?” As if she didn’t hear, she kept hammering. Tommy frowned and returned to his own work.
Off in his home, Wilbur sat at his desk while reading over numerous papers. If he had known how stressful being a leader was, maybe he wouldn’t have declared himself as one.
Tubbo gently wrapped his knuckles against the dark oak door, drawing Wilbur’s attention away from the document in front of him. “Come in, Tubbo.” The brunet walked in with his hands folded anxiously in front of him. “What’s wrong?”
Suddenly alert, he rapidly shook his head, his light brown hair bounced side to side with each shake. “No, no, nothing’s wrong. I just- I just wanted to tell you that Niki and I finished expanding the garden!” 
Wilbur gave Tubbo a tired smile, “Good work you two, get some rest now.” Tubbo nodded, still standing in the exact same spot. Wilbur immediately pushed aside his document and gestured to the stool in front of his desk. “Clearly there is something else on your mind, might as well say it.” 
Tubbo perched on the edge of the stool and focused on the wooden desk, Wilbur sighed and leaned forward, forcing himself into Tubbo’s sight. “You can tell me anything, Tubbo, I’m here to listen.”
“Don’t you think it’s unfair that Mina is doing so much work for L'Manberg?” He blurted out, “I mean, she said she is only here as a minor helping hand yet she has still done so much for us.”
Wilbur leaned his head on his hands, a small smile on his face. “It’s her choice, she can back out any time she wants to.”
Tubbo, unsatisfied with the response he got, huffed out, “Do you think she would though? She’s doing so much because she cares for you and Tommy and you’re just using her!” 
“See, we have very limited people Tubbo, we take whatever labor we can get, even if it seems wrong.”
The door swung open, ending the conversation as quickly as it started. Wilbur sighed again, rubbing his temple as Tommy and Jack stormed in, dirt footprints covered the floor as well as sawdust and small pebbles. “Are you two fucking serious?” 
“We’re done!” Jack declared, a look of relief spread over his face, “We are finally fucking done that stupid build, took us two whole days! Our payment best be good, Wil.”
“Your pay is getting to live here,” Wilbur replied obviously, scowling at the mess his office had become in a matter of seconds. “you are also going to mop the damn floor after cleaning yourselves up.” 
The three bickered while Tubbo sat in awkward silence, noticing a missing presence. “Guys- guys! Where is Mina?” The fighting came to a stop as they looked around the office.
“Who cares, she’s probably outside or something.” Tommy shrugged.
Mina swept the floor meticulously, running over each corner numerous times to confirm it’s cleanliness. Niki knocked on the ajar door, peeking in. “Mina, is it just you in there?”
“Yeah, just me,” Niki came in with her hands hidden behind her back with her usual friendly bright smile on her face. “Be careful, it’s still quite dirty.”
“Oh, the dirt isn’t something that bothers me,” She admired the build, uttering a distant ‘wow’. “How did you guys do this in two days? It looks so cool!”
“Well, none of us really slept or took too many breaks.” Mina said, leaning the broom against the wall then glancing over at Niki, “Not too sound rude but what are you doing in here?” 
“Oh, that’s right,” she brought her arms out from behind her back and handed Mina a brown paper bag, “this is for all the hard work you’ve done for L’Manberg!” Mina stared at the bag in Niki's hand with a flustered gaze. "Here, take it." Niki made Mina take the item, grinning widely.
"I-...uh...wow, uh thank you." Inside the bag was a small cardboard box with half a dozen muffins. Mina could feel Niki’s eyes staring directly at her face, now under a decent amount of pressure, she lowered her gaze while saying ‘thank you’. 
“I wasn’t too sure what exactly you liked so I decided to make two different types, I tried asking Wil but he didn’t know..”
“I appreciate it, thanks Niki.” The girls blue eyes twinkled at the cute reaction, to protect their possible friendship she bit her tongue and simply continued to smile. “Uh, anyways, I-I uh, I need to finish cleaning up and whatever, we can talk later if you want to.” Niki nodded, leaving as quickly as she appeared.
Mina waited for the crunch of gravel to become distance before resting her head against the oak wall, exhaling loudly. "Why do you have to be such a moron? Acting so tough when you could be making a friend."
That sound she recognized, the sound of gravel crunching under someone’s feet alerted her and she pushed herself away from the wall, reaching for the broom as if nothing happened. "Oh hey Mina, there you are, we were just wondering what happened to you." Jack picked up the second broom and tossed it at Tommy.
Mina nodded gently, eyeing Jack who was now leaning against the wall as Tommy started sweeping. Since when was Tommy so willing to do what he is told? "Hey Jack, I actually think you should be helping Tommy. Here, you can use the broom I have," She forced it into his hand and to prevent him from returning it, she stuffed her hands in her pockets, "also remember to wash the windows and maybe the floor if it doesn't seem clean enough, wouldn't want future citizens to be unhappy now, would you?"
Without waiting for a single ounce of protest, Mina walked out of the house and ignored Jack's raising voice. "M-Mina? Come on, this isn't fair!" To further rub it in, Mina turned around and waved at the two guys.
"What a bitch!" Jack exclaimed.
Tommy flicked the broom at him causing dust to rise around them and dirty both of them even more, "Oh shut up Manifold, it's just a bit of cleaning."
"You seriously don't care that she just ditched us like it was nothing?"
He shrugged his shoulders and swept his small dirt pile out of the door, "Not particularly," Jack's eyebrow rose at the response, Tommy seen this and sighed, "stop bitching and just do the work, it won't take much longer anyways."
"What the hell's gotten into you, huh? Never took you as the type to submit so easily."
Tommy focused his attention on the chore, trying to ignore what Jack said, but the more he let it sit in his head the more it annoyed him. Ten minutes passed of the boy's brow being creased in thought yet he still couldn't come up with a reply. Then it dawned on him, Jack was right, why wasn't he upset? He and Jack had worked just as hard as she did so why were they doing the rest?!
Because she doesn't owe you anything.
"That's it, it's because she doesn't owe us anything." Tommy muttered under his breath.
"What the hell are you mumbling about?"
"Nothing, nothing, don't worry about it."
Wilbur frowned at the product presented to him, the farm expansion was barely big enough to sustain their current population and as things were growing, it wouldn't sustain even a dozen more people. "Is this it?"
Tubbo flinched, doubt growing with hearing the man's tone, "Yeah, m-me and Niki thought it looked good!"
Unsatisfied, Wilbur's eyes narrowed. "It's not enough, expand it by a couple more yards." Tubbo's face fell and his eyes ran over the field, "Tubbo, we have a growing population, this will only feed what we have now, in a few months it will only feed about half."
"Right, I apologize, we'll start on it immediately."
"Good."
Wilbur could sense his migraine growing, each appearing problem contributing to the pounds of stress that rest on his shoulders. Chatter sounded from the marketplace, new booths lining what was formerly an empty road. “This place is such a mess, why would anyone want to live here?” His attention was brought to the small family, the oldest woman, the mother was frowning. 
“We don’t have much of a choice honey, all the other places are charging far more and we can’t afford it.”
“Ugh, I know.”
Wilbur kept walking and didn’t stop till he got to his house. Fundy sat on the front lawn playing with a wooden sword. “Dad!” The fox boy cheered, dashing over immediately. He feigned a smile as he pat his boy’s head.
“I’m feeling a bit tired son, mind staying quiet while a take a quick rest?” Fundy’s ears lowered as his disappointment grew apparent.
“Okay.”
 Mina knocked on the librarians door, waiting patiently for any sign of life. After a couple of seconds the oak door creaked open, an old man peeked through the crack. “What do you want?” He grumbled.
“I need to find a book or two, I won’t cause too much of a ruckus.” The old man gave her a once over before opening the door wider, welcoming her into the ancient building. The history section was in the far right corner, the furthest from the entrance.
“If you take anything just don’t let me see, I don’t care.”
She scanned each book spine, searching for any kind of book that would be of use. “Gotcha.” She grinned in victory as she found the book titled ‘Potions Through The Ages’
Mina didn’t want too much, just information on that one potion. She was unfamiliar with that one given to her, and with each page flip she grew even more concerned. Till it caught her eye. “Potion of healing?” ‘This potion has the ability to immediately heal the user of any physical wound, in extreme situations it will only leave a faint scar. However, it is now impossible to brew such a potion as the ingredient “Dragon’s Breath” is unattainable..’
Her free hand touched the location of where the wound had been, “This is it, there’s no other potion that does the same so how did he have one?” Instead of putting too much thought into it, she pocketed the book and continued scanning the shelves. Upon realizing how little interest everything gave her, she went to leave.
Another book caught her eye, one titled ‘The Life System.’
“Fiction in the non-fiction area? Tsk.”
The large book slipped out of her grasp, landing on it’s back. Every page was lined with gold flakes and the writing was written by hand. “Maybe not..” The pages were frail from age, gold flakes were falling off with each movement and she feared that the entire thing would fall out from it’s cover. So she pocketed that one too.
The old man ignored her when she passed by his desk and out the door, clearly waiting for her to leave. 
It was certainly risky to walk into Somnium territory as a friend of L’Manberg, those she passed by made that obvious with their whispers and stairs. Mina did make it quite obvious who she sided with, the red fabric tied around her left thigh gave it away. 
Most shops and street vendors started refusing those who appeared to associate with L’Manberg, while this was barely an inconvenience to the others, it meant that she could no longer freely travel as she once had before. 
Just a bit ahead, Mina squinted to see the trio. Dream, Sapnap, and Punz stood in the middle of the pathway, seemingly discussing amongst themselves. Her eyebrows furrowed a sigh fell from her lips, "The long way it is."
She wasn't prepared to fight all three of them and that was obvious. Clearly, though, they didn't care.
Punz yanked her back by her shoulder, trapping her in between the three of them. "Well well well, look what we've caught boys, a little L'Manberg rat." Mina glared at the blond, slowly rotating to consider possible exits. There were none. Well, none that would get her out alive.
Each of them stood tall and confident, mocking grins spread across their faces. “Mind telling us what you’re doing outside that cage of yours?” Sapnap brought his face closer to hers and grabbed hold of her chin. “All the way out here...where you could be caught.” Mina swatted his hand away and licked at the back of her teeth. At this point, she was fucked.
“What do you want?” She snapped back in retaliation, the men collectively awed. “if you came here to kill me just get it over with, I have things to do.” It was not the best idea to challenge them and yet, she couldn’t stop the words from flowing out of her mouth. 
Punz and Sapnap both glanced back at Dream who stepped forward, the corners of his mouth turned up as he drew closer with each footstep. “Now why would we kill you?” Her eyes grew wide as his face grew closer to her own. “Why, why would I kill you?” 
“Then why do you have me surrounded?”
Sapnap clicked his tongue, “Are we not allowed to say hello?”
“Yeah, do you not appreciate us taking time to talk to you?”
Mina scowled and remained silent, hoping for a miracle. Sapnap nudged Punz and looked towards Dream, “What do you say we send those L’Manberg morons a message?” Dream’s eyebrows raised and he motioned for Sapnap to continue, “Let’s take one of her lives away.” 
Dream hummed in thought, “Not yet, that won’t help us for now.” Her eyes went round, the man in green tilted her chin upwards, leaning over to whisper, “You owe me, Mina, don’t forget this.” He backed away, waving at his friends, “Let’s go, we’re just wasting our time here.”
Sapnap whined out a string of pleas, dragging his sword behind him. “C’mon, just let me at her! Not like she’s important or anything!” 
Mina sighed out in relief, content with the temporary freedom. Then it hit her. He said yet. Don’t kill her..yet.
“you owe me.” 
“Fuck.” She whispered.
Tommy and Wilbur stood face to face as Wilbur told Tommy his new plan. Tommy grinned and nodded, agreeing with his older brother. Mina opened the door without warning, feeling the tension in the air rise. “Oh, sorry, did I interrupt something?”  
Tommy, unsure, waited for Wilbur to answer. “No, actually I think it’s good that you’re here.” He closed the door behind her, returning to his former position. “Tommy and I are going to hold an election.” 
“What?” Mina exclaimed, “What the hell made you decide to do that?”
“My people aren’t listening to me, Mina, they don’t show respect. I believe it will help us gain more power without violence.”
Mina rolled her eyes, “What do you even need power for in the first place? You said yourself that L’Manberg is a free nation yet here you are treating it otherwise!”
“I know you don’t understand, Mina, I just wanted you to know since this election will bring more people-”
“More people who won’t listen to you,” silence filled the room, Tommy awkwardly fiddled off to the side and anxiously chewed on his lip. “-Listen, Wilbur, you can do whatever you want but I do hope you consider the possibilities of problems that will likely arise from this.” 
"Like what, Mina? Care to tell me what problems may arise?"
"You may gain a political opponent, has that not occured to you?"
"Really now? Who do you think is going to run against me?"
"Anybody can and likely will, you can't just have an election with one party."
Tommy grew impatient hearing his two siblings fight, their raising voices made his head hurt. "Can you two shut the fuck up for once? We're going through with the election anyways so what's the point in arguing?"
Mina's arms crossed under her chest, "Right, whatever you say Tommy." Her eyes glossed over with a fiery emotion, "You're on your own now Wilbur."

happy valentines day!!!! here’s some (hopefully) sweet headcanons because i’m heinous and can’t finish asks without taking four weeks!!!
+ steve drinks an abhorrent amount of coke. like he buys those 24 pack bricks they sell and it’s gone within the week. it honestly shocks billy that he hasn’t like gotten scurvy from his diet, but the coke thing is genuinely the most surprising. steve’ll chug like two cans in an hour and billy is forced to watch like “drink water. plz drink some water”
+ steve started out NOT being a cuddler. he’s a stomach sleeper at heart, faced away from the other side of the bed and toward the nightstand bcuz that’s where his alarm clock would be. but then he adapts for a multitude of reasons, first one being he unconsciously seeks out more heat in the winter. second was that he’d start out the night, before he even fell asleep, being the big spoon maybe after a lonely/kinda bad day. just wants to hide his face somewhere so he doesn’t gotta look at anything. billy never rlly has been a touchy-feely guy either, and kinda still isn’t, but he doesn’t shy away when it’s given to him. deadass like “affection and tenderness is all new to me but i accept it in all forms apparently. thank u and goodnight zzzzzz”
+ first time steve ever sees billy cry in a modern au is when they’re watching dumbo. he’s finally using his disney+ account and he’s been meaning to go back and watch all the stuff from when he was a kid just for some nostalgia or smth. baby mine part comes on and billy starts doin that silent angry cry, leans forward and presses the heels of his palms into his eyes trying to get it to stop. he didn’t think it would be too big of a deal, like he’s never actually seen dumbo before so he didn’t know about the goddamn mom elephant being taken away from the kid and also doesn’t help that he’s been called dumbo before when he was in like third grade. so he’s sitting there all pissed about being sad like “fuck this stupid fucking elephant movie” and steve is patting his back like “yeah fuck it :’)” 
+ steve buys those horrible graphic tees with such specific and confusing quotes/jokes on them. will come up to billy with his dopey grin like “hey.....hey guess what i bought :)” 
+ billy gets sick their first valentines day. they’d been dating for like seven months at that point, and billy had NEVER celebrated valentines, really only saw it as a holiday he had to babysit max while neil and susan go out on a date or something, he tried not to think about what they got up to. but then he’s in indiana with steve for a bf and it’s still really wintery. he’s not rlly built for the cold so he gets a runny nose and sore throat, and the pressure in his head gives him kinda bad migraines. neil and susan still go out, max is spending the day with her friends, so billy just stays in bed, sleeps so he doesn’t have to sit through a massive head pain. late into the afternoon steve’s knocking on the door and it rlly takes an act of herculean strength to answer it. billy doesn’t even say hello just opens the door and stares and steve is pouting like “u didn’t come over :(” and billy goes “no shit” and it comes out all congested. this leads to steve ushering him back inside, finding him pain killers, laying him back down. billy is p high with the pain rn like delirious but he registers steve laying down w him so he’s mumbling “u gotta be gone ‘fore my dad gets home” and steve is like “ikik go to sleep” 
+ billy’s fever makes him run rlly warm tho. steve ends up falling asleep but luckily max is the one to find them hours before neil and susan come home. she has a hard time letting billy live it down because the state she found them in - all puppy-piled together with blankets everywhere, billy’s head tucked under steve’s chin - is admittedly uncharacteristically sweet for her older brother. he tries to act all cool and intimidating and she rolls her eyes, thinking smth like “shut up, little spoon” 
+ when they move out and get pets, billy is the one who talks to them like they’re real people, mostly for jokes. like they get a vocal puppy who gets pissy that it’s not getting fed, so it yips very pointedly and billy stops what he’s doing to look at the dog like “who the FUCK do you think you’re talking to???” steve is the baby voice pet owner, does the “oh, whos a good boy? who’s a good boy YOU you’re the good boy :))))” and billy straight up chats with the dog. it gets up on the couch next to him and he’s like “what’s up kid” and the dog lays down and does that heavy sigh bcuz being a dog is rough and billy just kinda nods like “yeah i feel that, man”

some random headcanons //
( just some random hcs i thought of !! this can b revised at any point it’s mainly just here for me to jot some ideas down bc i can’t write rn )
hwiyoung:
after asking yeonmi out he’s a little bit terrified he’s going to mess things up so he’s been constantly walking on eggshells when it comes to anything ~romantic~. he’s hesitant to even hold hands with her yet
that being said, personality wise he hasn’t changed at all, though he no longer views her as a pest and actually really adores her even if he can’t quite put that into words. he’s incredibly thankful for not only her friendship but the fact she put up with him being a petty thief as well as dragging her to mcdonalds at least once a week
he’s still a petty thief though, don’t get me wrong. he has barely any money to his name and he’s too prideful to ask for help and would rather find ways to make things work on his own
he’s definitely stopped lying as much, mainly because now that he’s close with yeonmi he feels like he doesn’t have as much to hide, but he’ll be tight lipped around pretty much anyone else still especially when it comes to his past
he always checks his phone first thing when he wakes up and he’s hopeful he has at least one text waiting for him. even if he doesn’t, he’ll text yeonmi first thing no matter what. usually something annoying followed by ‘good morning!! ☆(◒‿◒)☆’ or something similar
he doesn’t have many friends but he has plenty of acquaintances, most are from when he was a bit younger so they’re not incredibly close especially since most of them followed a much different path than he did
doesn’t even think of going to school at all but if pressed or given the opportunity he would because he knows it’d be helpful in the long run. if given the chance, he’d study psychology, but considering he can’t afford it, it’s the last thing on his mind
filters through the same several outfits all the time. his closet is relatively empty and he doesn’t have too much interest in fashion to begin with. if he does, he just asks yeonmi’s opinion and goes with whatever she suggests
his hair is currently long mainly because he’s too lazy to keep up with constant trims. he thinks about going back to platinum often because he thinks it looks cool but doesn’t want to deal with the upkeep either. it’s slightly curly naturally and currently a nice brown
has terrible handwriting. he likes to write yeonmi stupid notes from time with little doodles just because
still keeps a small collection of various items in his room but the size of it has gone down considerably in the past two years. his apartment is also much cleaner now and he has more decorations overall. now it looks like a home rather than a shell he was just living in
despite being nicer overall than he used to be, he can still come off rather rude to strangers because he doesn’t exactly hold back and can be somewhat cold
baekhyun:
absolutely enamored with yerin, the coffee shop girl. finally got the guts to talk to through after constant pep talks from his friends. luckily, for him, she thought the way he tripped over all his words and turned as red as a tomato was endearing
speaking of coffee, he hates it. but he drinks it anyway because he needs the caffeine. he will only order super sugary drinks otherwise he’ll probably spat it out and whine
since time has passed, he’s upgraded from only doing housework to actually taking on tasks some may consider superhero worthy, except they’re still not to the level he’d like to be. that being said, his imagination still plays up absolutely everything he does so helping an old lady cross the road makes him feel super accomplished
back to yerin: she’s actually on the complete opposite end of the scale, her family is a line of supervillains, but she hasn’t quite revealed herself (nor does she want to for obvious reasons) but inevitably this will come to a head as baekhyun continues to grow as a hero and she, too, grows as a villain
still an absolute MESS when it comes to fashion and hair. he can’t put together an outfit to save his life and his hair can maybe be considered a nicely styled bedhead (think: get you alone mv). bright, obnoxious colors and clashing patterns are his favorite
as a side hobby baekhyun got into fps shooters. he’s terrible at them. somehow he’s garnered a small following from streaming nonetheless (really it’s because despite being an idiot he’s quite funny) he eventually wants to move on to other games too
still hates working out. sieun if you’re out there... i’m so sorry
still has a small desire to go back to school, but he’s too caught up in all his other hobbies and work that he hasn’t had the time to look into it. in reality, he’s just really distracted, but he does spend most of his time doing his ‘superhero duties’ so he blames it on that if his friends call him out on the fact he still hasn’t called 
incredibly clumsy unless he’s in the zone. constantly covered in bruises and scratches and broke his arm a year ago trying to do a backflip to show off to his friends. he did not land well, nor did he complete the backflip
anzu:
recently picked up ballet classes again to work on her balance and form. she finds it’s one of the few places she can fully relax and zone out for an hour or two besides when she practices gymnastic routines
a small part of her wishes she could still compete in gymnastics, but she knows getting back into it would be incredibly difficult. it’s been something she’s been playing with in her mind a lot lately, especially due to the fact she has the time, but her own nervousness holds her back
as of lately, her nightmares have grown much worse and she hasn’t been able to sleep. she’s irritable most days as well as distracted and not fully there
she’s attempting to open up more about her own emotions as she’s beginning to realize keeping everything bottled up is only making things worse. that being said, there’s few people she trusts with this information as she doesn’t want to bother anybody as well as the fact that she’s always anxious talking about her feelings will change people’s perspectives about her to be more negative
generally has pretty low self esteem. does not believe it when people compliment her, but usually she’ll accept it to be polite
surprisingly argumentative with certain people and sometimes it shocks even herself
still terrible at darts and not very into movies as she can’t sit down and focus through the whole thing to save her life
video games are still a major stress reliever for her, though lately she finds it difficult to get into them
despite the fact she’s relatively close with her aunt and uncle, lately she hasn’t spoken to them much either. she’s pulled away from most things due to her terrible mood and only really goes out for work or if a friend pries her from her apartment. secretly, she’s grateful, but she’ll whine until she’s actually out at which point she’ll actually enjoy herself
music wise she’s been listening to a lot of classical. it calms her. she doesn’t know the names of any of the songs she likes, though, and would be hard pressed to name anybody besides the most well known composers
she’s been playing around with the idea of going to school finally and her aunt and uncle would support her financially (through her parents, of course) but as she has no idea what she’d like to study she still holds off on this
wants to travel more of the world but she never has a lot of money because she makes so many impulsive purchases and she’d never ask her aunt and uncle for help unless it were an emergency situation
most of her bad mood comes from conflicting memories that are starting to sprout up, but she doesn’t quite understand what’s going on yet. her migraines (and headaches in general) have gotten much worse and more frequent, as well
her aunt/uncle have gently pressed for her to go back to therapy but she refuses assuring them nothing is wrong. she has a weird idea of it thanks to her prior visits and is just generally distrustful of the whole idea now unfortunately 
she’s so down in the dumps rn i want to fight her. that’s a hc too. thank u

Izuku just wanted to watch an all might movie... But faith said no❤️
(kinda bkdk lmao idk)
Izuku was walking down the street to the 3-A dorms.
he had bought a very interesting necklace from an antique shop down town.
He saw the necklace from outside of the store whenever he walked by to go to the mall, he never really had been interested in old things but the necklace had caught his eye for a while.
So he bought it.
He didn't knew what to do with it after the old lady sold it to him, it was just a simple necklace, with a few beads and sharp looking teeth hanging from the front, nothing special, it was probably fake, yet he bought it anyways.
He sighed, contemplating whether if he wants to give it to someone or just keep it in his room drawer and probably forget about it for a few months. He looked at the necklace at his hands, he decided to try it on and see what he would look like.
He wrapped the necklace on his neck and looked at his refection on the window from the shop in front of him.
Hah, just as he expected. I look ridiculous.
Izuku looked like those weird Vikings from his history books who worn their kills around their neck. He sighed, why did I buy this again.
He took off the necklace and placed it within his pocket and walked off towards the dorms. His phone buzzed, Uraraka send him a text.
From URA URA URARAKA: Hey Izuku! Are we still doing our movie night? Tenya and Shouto are gonna come a lil later, they r still making out in the bathroom LMAO, Where are you rn???
He quickly walked faster towards the dorms, he texted back.
to URA URA URARAKA: I'm almost there! Just had to buy something.
to URA URA URARAKA: OH!! Btw tell Tsu I still have her history notes! I kinda forgot to give it to her (。ŏ﹏ŏ) and I'm still not done with my homework. Hope she's not mad haha
from URA URA URARAKA: she said no worries! But you better hurry Izuku! Or else we're going to start the movie without you (✿^‿^)
to URA URA URARAKA: Noooooo Chakooo 。:゚(;´∩`;)゚:。 Don't do this to meeee!!
to URA URA URARAKA: I really want to see the new All might movieee! Plz wait for meeee!!!!
From URA URA URARAKA: hahahahaha I'm just kidding Izuku, we're still waiting for Sho and Tenten to come back so you still have plenty of time.
From URA URA URARAKA: oh! And can you buy some snacks???
From URA URA URARAKA: we're running out of chips (人 •͈ᴗ•͈).
Izuku narrowed his eyes.
to URA URA URARAKA: do you really think it would be easy to make me buy you some chips after you threaten to start an ALL MIGHT MOVIE without me?
From URA URA URARAKA: yes because you are an amazing person who doesn't like to make your friend starve to death (◍•ᴗ•◍)
Izuku pouted.
to URA URA URARAKA: I hate you.
URA URA URARAKA: oh hush you love me.
to URA URA URARAKA: ...
to URA URA URARAKA: sigh
to URA URA URARAKA: what brand?
From URA URA URARAKA: YAY, me want the Cheetos. Hahaha love you Izuku <3 no homo ( ˘ ³˘)<3
to URA URA URARAKA: I really really hate you.
Izuku sigh and put his phone away, he went to the nearest 7/11 store and bought a couple of Cheetos and other junk food. Might as well make today cheat day.
He walked out of the store and headed towards the dorms again. He really need to start not being nice to his friends who threaten to start an ALL MIGHT movie without h—
"WATCH OUT!"
Izuku turned his head to the sound of a panicked voice and saw a light beam aiming towards him.
He got hit by the beam, he suddenly felt dizzy, he dropped his chips and fell to the ground. "Oh no! Kid are you ok?!" A person's voice beside him could be heard, He couldn't respond, he was so close to being unconscious.
"Hey! Oh my God this is all my fault—"
The person was still freaking out beside him. He felt something in his pocket, with the last of his strength, he looked down to see his pocket glowing before his consciousness slip.
•=•
Chirp chirp
"Ughhh........"
Izuku woke up with a groan and a growing migraine.
" My head hurts..."
Izuku rubbed his head, he seemed to passed out after getting hit with a beam. He looked at his surroundings and saw trees.
Wait, Trees?
He blinked a couple more times, making sure he isn't hallucinating, there were lots of trees, he must've teleported in a forest. Someone might have hit him a teleportation quirk.
He stands up groaning, he seems to have everything still, he kept his guard up if there's a potential villain near by. He looked to the ground.
The chips were nowhere to be found.
He checked his pockets for his phone and pulled it out. he looked at the GPS and saw he was—
Not near UA or the dorms. He can't seem to find out where he was. Panicked, he tried to message Uraraka but he saw his phone had no signal.
He sighed. Welp there goes calling for help. He looked around the forest again, trying to find an exit of some sort, or a camping ground at least. He might be near a park somewhere. He didn't know.
He groaned and put his phone back in his pocket and felt the necklace still there, he pulled it out and looked at it again, it looked... New? It looked like it's been recently made, the beads were really shiny. But that wasn't his main problem right now. He needs to get out of the forest.
He put it inside his pockets again and walked through the forest, it's seems much more prettier and... Greener. Like there were no trash anywhere or signs that people have walked through these woods. He groaned again.
It was either abandoned or people never found this place just yet. He contemplate on wether he should activate his quirk to make him go faster but ultimately decides against it. He'd rather not have anything's attention on him. Or worse he might attract trouble.
But it's seems trouble keeps finding him wherever he goes. Because he has set foot on a cage trap of some sort. A sound of a rope snapped when he stepped on— something, making a large cage drop on him, he yelled, caught off guard as the large cage dropped on him.
His heart beating so fast, he looked around, it won't be long till the person who made this trap find him, but he got confused, this trap was way to big for him, it was bigger than a bear too, it almost seems like it was made for a—
"WE FINALLY CAUGHT A DRAGON!"
He hears footsteps becoming louder, coming towards him. He didn't know what to do, he had to think fast, the bars of the cage are small enough for him to squeeze himself out of there, he did exactly just that.
As he went out he tried climbed the nearest tree he could find. Key word : tried.
He decided to hide into the bushes instead for dear life as he could hear the footsteps so close to the cage until he saw a pair of boots between the leaves.
"Aw man. Damn lizards."
"seems like our trap didn't work, dude."
"course it didn't work, it didn't even catch anything! Why didn't it at least catch a pig." A voice sighed.
He hears two different voice talking, wait— lizards? How could lizards be that big? The cage is the size of a boulder! Or even bigger than that!!
Don't tell me I traveled into some alternate dimension where lizards are the size of whales.
"We really shouldn't have used a stick as a trap holder kami, anything could step on it."
"Yeah you're right, that was pretty stupid. Bakugou is gonna be pissed." One of them said.
"Let's try to make it better this time again! At least it's working right!" A cheery voice exclaimed.
"True! But if Bakugou finds out, he's not gonna take anymore brilliant ideas from us."
"Aw c'mon bro don't be like tha—"
SNAP
The two unidentified people stopped talking, Izuku cursed himself inwardly for squirming around too much, the twigs and leaves of the bush itches so much. And he was trying to listen to the conversation of the two, closer.
There was silence again. Izuku was too scared to move, he didn't knew what they'd do if they find him.
Suddenly he was pulled up by the hem of his t-shirt out of the bushes. He screamed, surprised. Then a person's face that was way to close for comfort was in front of him. He froze.
"Who are you?" The person in front of him asked. "Are you the one who set foot in our trap!?" The person in front of him started to yell. Izuku was still to shock to respond.
"Hey man, calm down, the guy was probably lost and he obviously doesn't belong here, just look at his clothes." The other one pipes in.
The raven haired in front of him took a moment to look up and down on what he was wearing. Izuku blushed, not being used to people looking at him intensely, his eyes where sharp and it made Izuku feel naked.
"Are you a trespasser? Your clothes don't match any of the villages or tribes near by." The brunet stated.
Villages? Tribes? Did that quirk send him back in time or something!? Izuku didn't know how to respond. Still tongue tied from being caught in the bushes, were they hunters? Warriors of some sort? Barbarians? Their clothes looked as if they had gotten them from a bear, and they had swords strapped on their hips, they did say that they were at least hoping to have caught a pig, probably tribe people then?
"Heyyy. Earth to stranger? Uh, are you okay man?" The blonde with a black lighting bolt asked.
"I-I... You're right, I'm not, from h-here.. I-I think I-I'm lost..? I-I don't know where I-I am, I just woke up being here in t-these woods." Izuku stuttered, the brunet was still holding him by the hem of his shirt, dangling from it like a lion cub being picked by it's parent. It was embarrassing.
The brunet hummed. Putting Izuku down and started to pat his chest and hips. Izuku squeaked, face becoming red once more.
"Hm, you don't seem to have any weapons with you, so I'll believe you for now." The person hummed again, retracted his arms from Izuku. "How did you even end up in the woods. Unconscious no less?"
"Were you robbed?" The blonde asked from the side.
"I-I think, I think got hit by a beam that made me passed out." Izuku confessed. It wasn't a lie, he didn't know if they knew what quirks work in this time period. Or dimension.
The guy with the lightning bolt's jaw dropped.
"Dude, I think you might've been hit by a Gurngklenite's beam!"
A what.
"A-A G-Gurng— uh c-come again?"
"A Gurngklenite! Dude don't tell me you didn't know that kind of dragon that is? The scaley-winged-lizards are rare as hell! They come from the mountains, It's beam must've made you transport here!" The brunet exclaimed.
Dragons? DRAGONS EXIST HERE?!? ok so it isn't lizards, that a relief, but DRAGONS?? Now that is something you don't see everyday— except for dragon quirks of course, but actual DRAGONS!
"Did you at least kill the Dragon before the beam hitted you?" The brunet asked.
That question made Izuku froze, Kill? Do these people kill dragons? Wait hold on, this is starting to sound like the HTTYD plot.
"Uh.. I didn't had any weapons with me, I was... carrying food, I just heard someone screaming and the next thing I knew was I was hit with a beam." Izuku explain, not the truth but not a lie either.
"Oh man, that sucks." The blonde said. "Hey, if you don't know where you're going right now, you could come with us in our village."
Izuku blinked, he did not expect that. He didn't know where he was right now and he doesn't seem like they were bad people.
"Uh. I-If it's not to much, trouble." Izuku said.
"Not at all man!" The red head smiled "you don't seem like someone dangerous, we need to ask the Chief first though, but don't worry, I'm sure the Chief would allow you to stay!"
"T-Thank you." Izuku really hoped his gut is correct.
•=•
"Soooo, what's your name stranger?" The blonde asked.
Izuku flinched in surprise by the question. Should he answer it? Would his name sound weird? He didn't know.
"O-Oh! I-I'm..uh Deku." Well the kanji in his name could be pronounced like that, it's also his Hero name. People tend to assume that's his name whenever they read it. It's not his real name but At least it won't give his identity away. They didn't know he wasn't from this time period, or dimension. (He still haven't come to the conclusion in which one is correct)
"Dude, why would your parents name you Useless?"
"H-Huh? W-What do you mean?" He asked, confused.
"Deku means Useless in our language! Are you foreign? Your skin is really pale." The brunet wondered out loud, both of them were really tan compared to Izuku, he was really pale, most people do tend to comment on his skin being milky white most of the time. He doesn't go out much and they usually work out in UA grounds with a large glass barrier that only shines the light and without heat.
"A-Ah yeah, I don't go out much haha." Izuku scratched the back of his head. "What about you guys? Y-Your names, I mean." He clarified.
"Oh! Sorry about that man, I'm Kaminari Denki!" The blonde—Denki puffed his chest out.
"And I'm Kirishima Eijiro!" The brunet smiled— wow he has really sharp teeth.
Izuku giggles, "nice to meet both of you!" They were really an enthusiastic duo.
Both hunters(? Izuku still didn't know what they are) froze up and Izuku started to sweat.
Was there something wrong? Did he say anything offensive? Is it because he laughed? People usually say that his laugh was similar to a girl's, oh no, is it bad to laugh? Is it because of his teeth? Kirishima's teeth were sharp, maybe Kaminari's are too and they are weirded out by is flat teeth—
"Dude... That was so cute." Kirishima said in an awe tone
Eh?
Denki laughed, "nah man! Eijiro is the only one with really sharp teeth in our village! I have plain flat teeth too! Wow, didn't know you were a mumblebug, that was adorable."
Eeeeeeh????
"I-I—I'm s-sorry?" The blood went back to his cheeks again for the third time that day. He mumbled again! He tried really hard to break that habit whenever he's nervous but it keeps coming back! Damn old habits.
"Dude you also have like, dots on your cheeks! I didn't even notice! Tiny little moles! Wow, your past lovers from your previous life must really love to kiss you all over your face to have this many marks. You must be a really lovable person." Kaminari squished his cheeks to inspect him closer. Wait does he mean the freckles from his cheeks? Those aren't moles!
"T-They aren't moles! I-I, T-They are freckles! I have them all over my body! It's a mix from m-my father's side. A-And, W-What do you mean about marking? Past lovers?" Izuku stuttered embarrassingly, it's obvious that they had some sort of cultural beliefs, but moles? Really? It's embarrassing enough to have his name translates to Useless.
"Hey Denki! Look at his hair! It's green!" Kirishima exclaimed, patting Izuku's hair.
U-Uhm— Y-You guys—,"
"Oh wow! That's so cool! I didn't even realized! And his eyes! Look at them! They're like emeralds!!"
It seems like they weren't listening to him at all, too engrossed inspecting his face. Izuku blushed again, he's surprised that he hadn't passed out again for having too many blood circulations all over his face.
"Rosey cheeks too, look!"
"Denki, bro."
Kaminari looked at Kirishima questionably.
"Do you think... He's the skönhet?"
Kaminari gasped, turning his head back to Izuku then to Kirishima then back to Izuku again, Izuku started sweating, is this another cultural belief?? what do they mean about him being 'the skönhet?' what does that even mean?
"Dude... You think?"
" 'Skin white as snow, kisses of morning dew drops around, hair weaves like fine silk, eyes shown like diamonds under the moon, looks like the embodiment of reincarnated nature itself'... Bro..."
Both looked at each other, as if they had a telepathic conversation, before both of them nodded. Izuku doesn't like this one bit.
" Uh.. guys?"
Kirishima grabbed his shoulders and smiled "you are definitely coming with us to meet the Chief!" Eyes sparkling.
"W-What do you mean a-about the w-whole 'embodiment of r-reincarnated nature' thing???" Izuku asked nervously.
Denki smiled wide, eyes twinked with glee. "You're the one who our little prince has been waiting for."
Izuku gulped. He really just wanted to watch the new all might movie.
•=•
After the whole conversation, both of them started to speak in another language which Izuku didn't understand. They don't seem like bad people, but the way that they said about being the one their 'prince' had been waiting for sure gives Izuku a weird feeling in his tummy.
They continued walking down the path until they reached a clearing. Izuku had to blink his eyes to adjust to the light, the trees didn't really had enough of them from the forest.
But what he saw truly amazed him.
There were lot's of people who are dressed like Vikings! houses made out of metal and wood in odd shapes, people buzzing all around, their boats were crafted into colorful designs, a sheep herd on the edges, everything was loud and joyous.
"Amazing right?" Izuku turned his head to look at Kirishima "Welcome to our village!" He grinned wide, Izuku smiled back too.
"It surely is." Turning back to look in awe once more.
"Alright, we really gotta go to the capital and introduce you to our Chief!" Denki patted Izuku's back making him flinch, he didn't notice.
"Alright let's go!" Kirishima grabbed Izuku's arm. "W-Wait—" Izuku got dragged towards the village, as they were walking Izuku could feel the people's stare and whispers at him.
"huh what strange clothin'."
"Ye mean what strange hair. Look a' em."
"ya think it's a he 'r a she?"
"No matter, their beauty is simply... Exotic don't ya think so."
"They are quite fetching."
"Do yeh think he's thee skönhet?"
"Oh that would be splendid ay!"
Izuku blushed, not use to the compliments at all, being called a beauty seems so far fetched. He's not even half as pretty as anyone back at his world, he's just plain old Izuku, they'd probably just call him that because he looks so much different from them, still, what's a skönhet?
The two kept dragging him to a very large house, not as big as the dorms back in his world but it was really tall and sturdy.
Denki turned to look at him, mischief colored his eyes, making Izuku nervous.
"Are you ready skönhet?"
-•-
Clanking of metals could be heard from inside the building, people running around trying to do their chores, yelling and laughing could be heard echoing from the walls.
Izuku walked with his head low, trying to be as not noticable as possible. But it's kinda failing because everyone keeps greeting Kaminari and Kirishima and then their eyes land on him.
They kept walking until they were face to face with a big door, Kaminari went somewhere to the side and pulled a lever, making the door automatically open in front of them.
Inside there were a thrownroom of some sort. burning wood and weapons could be seen hanging from the walls, 3 chairs in the middle with a dragon's head mounted in the wall, it gave Izuku shivers.
"Bakubrooooo!! Are you here??" Kirishima shouted, startling Izuku in the process.
"WE FOUND SOMEONE WE THINK YOU SHOULD TOTALLY MEET!!!" Kaminari screamed louder.
There was a loud curse that could be heard from a door in the side, and the door opened with a loud thud, revealing a shirtless handsome angry blonde.
Wait handsome?
"What do you idiots want?" The blonde questioned irritatingly, crossing his arms and puffing his chest like a lion, showing it's prowess. It made Izuku shrink at the back.
"Well~ big man, we found someone in the woods—," Kaminari was cutted off but the blonde.
"You brought a stranger here, in out terf, that could be potentially a spy or a theif. Inside our territory." The blonde suddenly stated.
"Bro, hear us out! They were hit by a Gurngklenite's beam! They must be scared waking up in a place they didn't know!" Kirishima exclaimed, doing a very good (?) Impression of Puppy dog eyes.
"Tch, I don't wanna hear that excuse, for all you idiots know, this fucker could be lying." Suddenly the blonde looked at Izuku.
Red eyes met green.
Izuku squeaked and hunched more. The the blonde was silent. Suddenly he went forward towards Izuku.
He grabbed Izuku by his cheeks with his hand, examining him closer.
"what the fuck?" The blonde muttered. He had a small blush dusting his cheeks as he examine Izuku.
Izuku couldn't help but also blush for the hundredth time that day, his heart was beating out of his chest really fast.
Both Kaminari and Kirishima were standing behind them with shit eating grins on their faces.
Oh well, this was such a great day. But he still hadn't watch that All might movie.

Sorry this is so long! I can’t figure out how to make an undercut for this. This site is such a disaster but such a safe haven! Now I don’t have to deal with the character limit! I love tea so much! I can’t drink sweet tea. Sweet things cause migraines like almost everything else. Iced tea is so good! I love when it’s been a long day and I can get some iced tea. Do you drink Pure Leaf? Their iced tea is amazing! Hot tea is amazing when I’m getting close to or had an anxiety attack. And migraines. It is so good.
I’m glad you and your sister are getting along now! Yeah they’re super close in age. They’re 13 months apart and very similar in personality. When they were younger (like preschool I think) people would think they were twins! Ikr? Like I was the one doing the work and being forced to sit in a small room close to other children who were forced to be there. Sometimes I’d just ask if she could keep a snack for me in the car that wasn’t nuts or some type of weird protein thing she tried to get me to eat cos she thought it was healthy. I’d say no cos it looked gross and sketchy and she’d get all offended and lecture me on how I was being rude. Most of the time I tuned her out. Wow I just realized I’ve been tuning out my parents for like 10 years. Anyways Like it was food. Idk what her problem was. Probably cos I refuse to conform to her standards.  We do deserve way better. Thankfully we have a safe haven like tumblr and other things. You’re so strong and amazing! 
How did that teacher keep their job? It’s so scary and my mom is kinda tall too so like tall people are very scary cos I expect them to yell and get in my face and then I think they’re gonna hit me cos why wouldn’t they? (They didn’t). Yelling is scary in general. Even if I’m not the one getting yelled at I get scared. That’s super valid. I cry when people yell at me too. It is super scary. Loud noises have always scared me too.
Ikr? She enjoyed talking to the other moms so it was fun for her. She didn’t care at all that I was hurt Now she acts all surprised when I get too scared to ask for help in s grocery store and she puts me on the spot too. And I have to try to to cry cos I get so scared and upset. I will tell my mom it’s fine we can buy the ramen on amazon but no. Honesty I’ve considered running out of the store and finding a place to hide to breathe but I don’t cos I’d get in trouble even though I’m 18. Aww thank you so much that really means a lot! You’re so amazing and deserve all the kindness in the world too! We really shouldn’t and I hope we grow too! We can unlearn it; it’s just hard and going to take a very long time!
It is terrifying to unpack anything at all. You are making progress and people usually don’t notice and that hurts. But you are making so much progress even on hard days you are doing better and it is so hard! You are making progress and doing amazing! I’m glad I make your day! It’s really nice to know that I’m making you smile! Therapy can be scary but it is so helpful with the right person. With the wrong person it is completely useless. Thanks for your support! You so deserve all the kindness in the world. It is a very long and hard process.
Eartha is so happy to get treats! oh strawberries are so good! And raspberries! 
You and Kurapika are so perfect for each other! Kurapika just kisses your head and tells you that he loves you, all of you. No matter what cos you are his world and he will do anything for you. He’s going to help however he can, his first instinct is to hold you and then talk it out if you can. He’ll rock back and forth with you in his arms and play with your hair. He will remind you that you’re his person and nothing will change that. He will always tell you how much he loves you! Kurapika will hold you as long as you need. No problem and he loves you too! Aww he loves to spend time with you and thinks it’s cute about how interested you are in learning! It is so cute! Killua will tease the two of you as he gives you guys tips! Kurapika looks so cute with his hair up! He loves when you’re just chilling in his lap and poking his face. The boy knows he needs to relax and is happy you help him with it! Kurapika is so happy you let him calm down at his own pace. It helps him realize that it’s okay to take his time to breathe and reset. He loves the reassurance you give him while holding him helps him so much. He doesn’t like the intensity of his emotions, it scares him cos it’s so much all at once and he’s completely overwhelmed. He melts when you’re so gentle with him and just let him calm down. Emotions are exhausting and he really likes that you take the time to listen to him and understand him. He might ask you to make him a soup his mom used to make him. He loves that you’re taking such good care of him and while you cook he’s still holding you but also making sure you’re safe. He’s so precious and needs your love! Aww he will just curl close to you and eat a little bit. He knows it’s bad if he doesn’t eat but he also doesn’t feel hungry so he just eats what he can. He loves your cooking so he always finishes at least half of the soup and desert. Kurapika will be falling asleep in your arms and just nods as you reassure him. It means so much! Aww it so cute when you two sleep all curled up! Yes! sappy nighttime cuddles are so amazing cos he’s just so loving. He’ll just wipe your tears and be so sweet. Aww the blanket pics are so cute! Leorio def asks for some! Kurapika will wrap you with him! You two are just the most precious! 
It is so stressful but I’ll adjust. Me too! I’ll submit a post of one of the horses! It was fun but tiring cos all the stalls were so muddy! It’s no problem at all! I enjoy writing Campika content! Yay! I’m so happy it helps! Kurapika is always ready to talk about how much he loves you. and how much you make him happy and just everything! Sounds like a drag but it’s over and you got Boba yesterday! Have you heard of these popsicles that are brown sugar and Boba? They’re so good and only at Asian markets and stuff. Also sold out most of the time, the taste amazing. That sounds like so much fun! And way too long to go without seeing your friends but the world is a mess rn so it can’t be helped. I’m glad you had fun! I bet Kurapika did too. He loves to see you happy! Wow this was way longer than expected lol. Hope you and Kurapika slept well! 🥀
Omg no worries about the length, I’ll just continue to put my responses under cut!!!
OMG RIGHT!!! I get so frustrated with it but also it’s my fav place ever like I be on Tumblr more than ANYTHING else haha. Ahh oh no I’m sorry sweet things like that trigger migraines, that sucks :( I honestly can only drink my tea ungodly sweet so I’m not sure how I’d drink tea if that happened to me lol. OOOOO YES SAME HERE!!! It’s always just so good!! Do you like green tea as well? That is always soooo good, especially when sick. OOO I have had Pure leaf before!!! It’s super good!!! OO and I’ve never thought to have hot tea before/during an anxiety attack I may have to try that to see if it helps!!! Aww thank you haha. She is 4 and a half years younger than me so she use to be super annoying when I was like an angsty teen HAHAHAH but now she is more grown up and so funny we always have loads of fun together. OH WOW that is super close in age!!! Are they your only siblings?? EXACTLY YOU WERE THE ONE DOING THE EXHAUSTING WORK!! AT SUCH A YOUNG AGE TOO!! God that’s so annoying omg moms really always think you’re being rude for the smallest things ugggggh that is just such a headache. Oh damn :/ honestly I’ve been doing the same with my parents for as long as I can remember. Especially bc they are always yelling at each other so I just am like “I do not hear.” EXACTLY LIKE YOU JUST WERE ASKING FOR FOOOD AHHH that’s just so annoying!! WE TRULY DO!!<33 True!! We have a place to come get love and support that we deserve!! AWWW THANK YOU SO MUCH<333 HAHA IKR idk I guess bc he was the baseball coach. He got a lot better my senior year though so I guess he was just going through some shit my freshman year. Not that it excuses his actions but at least he got more tolerable. Oh god yeah that sounds terrifying :(( I’m so sorry!! I hate that they’ve mad you feel so unsafe like that’s just so shitty, and I really hope once you move out you can feel more safety and such in your environment. AHH YELLING IS THE ABSOLUTE WORST!!! Anytime I mess up I expect to be yelled at so I just either don’t tell anyone or beat myself up over it  so I can be numb once I get yelled at :/ It’s bad too when I’m like having a really bad depressive episode my thoughts get so amplified it feels like I’m being yelled at even if I’m not ahhh it’s scary every time :( OMG I TOTALLY GET THAT!! AHHH THAT’S SO ANNOYING AND SHITTY SHE TURNED THAT TIME INTO HER SOCIAL HOUR WHY YOU WERE SO UPSET!!!! UGGHHH!!! God. all that is just so shitty, I’m so sorry :( Yeah it would be so simple and helpful to order online that’s just so rude she doesn’t listen to you at all!! Omg and I get that with being old yet your parents will still get you in trouble for doing something that can protect your mental health. UGH !!!! AWW THANK YOU<333 YOU’RE SO RIGHT!!! We deserve love and to let love into our lives!! It’s gonna be a whole process but will be worth it and we can do it!!! Ahh it fr is so scary I just have most these memories locked away so remembering them is exhausting. AWWWW THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! That makes me so happy to hear tbh<3 That’s so true!! And it can take so long to actually start building a connection with the therapist but when it’s the right one it’s just so good. I may try returning to therapy once I move out and don’t have to tell my parents LOL bc I do want to try getting better at talking my shit out. OMG OF COURSE YOU ALWAYS HAVE ALL MY LOVE AND SUPPORT!!!!! AWW THANK YOUU<333 EE YESSS EARTHA !!!! THE QUEEN SHE DESERVES ALL THE TREATS !!!!! OOO YESSS RASPBERRIES !!! Omg I also love grapes so much haha. 
AWWWWWW OMMMFG THANK YOU EEEE THAT MAKES ME SO HAPPY<333  EEEEE OMMG THAT’S SO SWEET!!!! Honestly I just really wanna be held like that by him when I’m having an episode like it get so hard to talk and I get so scared just knowing I’m not alone is really calming and knowing he’d be so gentle and understanding is just <3333 the best thing I could ever ask for. AWWWW I’M HIS PERSON EEEEEEEE THE WAY I’M SMILING !!!!!! Hearing that just ahhh my heart is SOARING !!!! I JUST LOVE HIM SOOOO MUCH!!! He’s so loving and understanding ahhhhhh he’s the best!! EEEEE that’s so cute!! Haha omg Killua SO will and he pretends to get so annoyed with us when we get off into our own little world together haha. Gon may join as well just for the extra training and fun!! OMG HE DOES LOOK SO CUTE I JUST LOVE HIM IN A LITTLE PONYTAIL!!!! HE’S SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!! AWWWW HE IS PRECIOUS!!!! Awww yay, I’m always sure to make sure he knows to take it slow so he doesn’t overwork himself. Emotions are A LOT so I just want him to be able to regain control at his own pace so he doesn’t get more overwhelmed. AWWW that makes me so happy he does!! Imma always give him so much loving reassurance to make sure he knows I’m here and love him and that we don’t have to rush anything. Omg I totally get that, I’m the same way when it comes to my emotions!!! So ofc Imma help him as much as I possible can!!! I will always listen to all he’s saying and going through in order to help him however I can and just be someone he can lean on. I’ll give him some soft little kisses too to help ground him and relax him!! He always kisses my hands and wrists when I’m having an episode, so when he’s having one I like to kiss his hands then forehead. AWWW omg yess I’ll def make him that soup!! It’s good comfort food and I’ll always have the ingredients on hand to be prepared. I’ll hum one his fav songs too as I’m cooking and he’s holding him to keep helping him relax as I’m moving around to make the soup. I’ll let him taste test it too to make sure it’s as close to his mom’s version as possible!! And I’ll def feed him once the soup is done too just to hear him giggle. We both go into such PROTECTIVE modes when the other is feeling bad emotionally or physically, and it always makes the one being taken care of smile and giggle. Whatever he doesn’t eat, I tell him we can just finish later so I’ll just go freeze it before we head back to bed to nap. I just love having him in my arms!!!! I’ll run my fingers through his hair as he snuggles up against me, falling asleep so fast as he is able to just fully relax with me. It makes me so happy seeing him get rest, and reminds me to get rest myself so I always fall right asleep with him. AWWW YESS SAPPY NIGHTS ARE THE BEST!!!!! AWWWW I’m like imaging him kissing away the tears which will just make me. MELT I think that’s so cute he’s so full of love and knowing he loves me so much just makes me feel so good. Like so many insecurities fade when he pours his heart out for me I just feel so happy!!! And pour may heart out right back at him to make sure he feels just as loved BC I LOVE HIM WITH MY ENTIRE HEART!!!! <3333 Omg yessss haha I’ll def send some to Leorio, but gotta keep it on the dl so Kurapika doesn’t get embarrassed haha.

Fic Writer Interview!
Thank you to the amazing @carryonsimoncarryonbaz and @bazzybelle for tagging me, you peeps are awesome!
Name: Theo [ridiculously Irish last name]
Fandoms: Carry On, obviously haha. Rn I’m very invested in MDZS/The Untamed, been reading fics nonstop! In general, I like Raven Cycle, Red, White and Royal Blue, DC comics, Locke & Key, and A LOT of web comics. Seriously, it’s a comical amount.
Where you post: Here on the Hellsite and on AO3. I used to post on FF but I stopped using that account a long time ago. The web design is garbage and the small text made my eyes hurt. No thank you!
Most popular one-shot: To my legit surprise, it’s “Love, Snow”! It’s not that this fic is bad, I actually really like it, but I though it would be “Just a Friend Date” or the Watford Cove sequel. Love, Snow was a weird af idea I had that I didn’t expect to get attention, but apparently people like it! So yay!
Most popular multi-chapter: Oh, definitely “Straight Boy.” I was also kinda surprised by how popular that one ended up being. I legit wrote it on a whim cause I thought a reddit post was funny, and in my self critical opinion, it’s not that well written, but people really liked it so yay again!
Fic you were nervous to post: Every. Single. One. I shit you not, I go through multiple rounds of anxiety before I post anything. Then afterwards I’m filled with even MORE anxiety and constantly read fics over to make sure I don’t have huge spelling/grammatical errors. I’m happy to put my work out there but it is def very nerve wracking every time.
How do you choose your titles: Usually I just think of them or I use song lyrics. If I’m completely stumped, I usually ask @carryonmylovelies for help, and she always has great ideas. (Btw none of my writing would exist without her. She usually gives me at least one suggestion for all my stories. There’s a reason I thank her in almost every fic.lol)
Do you outline: Hahahahaha fuck no! I’m a chaotic probably ADHD mess, I don’t have the patience for outlines. I do have a sort of vague idea when I start out, and I usually rant about it/run it by @carryonmylovelies before I actually write it. The middle is usually the most vague and I figure that out as I go then edit it later. It can take longer but if I write it out of order I rarely finish it.
Do you take prompts: I used to do a lot of prompts! Early followers might remember me doing an insane number of requests over the summer. The majority of my fics are from requests. However, as my health has declined, I’ve had to stop taking any prompts and sadly give up on the ones I had left. TL;DR I had two nervous breakdowns in less than a year and went on psychiatric meds. (Been on them for over a year now, I’m okay, dw.) Good part: I’m not in a constant state of crippling anxiety anymore! Bad part: I don’t have the insane energy I used to. Add that to my chronic migraines getting worse, and I can’t think of ideas or churn out fics as quickly as before, which makes prompts too stressful. Now I just do what I want when I can, which means my stuff isn’t as popular anymore as I don’t post very often. It’s a bit of ego stomp lol but imo it’s better for my health to take things slow. Huge apology to all the people whose prompts I never did btw, I’m really really sorry! Unfortunately my shitty body will not cooperate anymore. I hope you’ll still want to read anything else I put out in the future!
Complete: All my Carry On fics are complete. I write the entire thing in advance because I’m a perfectionist when it comes to continuity and plot. Spelling, grammar, and punctuation tho? Not so much lol
In progress: Rn I’m seriously working on an AU based on the old crime drama show “Medium.” Essentially you’ve got Simon, a slightly short fused psychic who ends up having to deal with problems, both from the living and the dead. And you’ve got Baz, his intelligent, fascinated, supportive but more practical normal bf who sometimes helps with psychic shit. Hijinks ensue!
Idk who to tag but here are the people I can think of off the top of my head!
@carryonmylovelies @the-lincyclopedia @annabellelux @vkelleyart @basic-banshee (sorry sorry my brain is fried I can’t think of anyone else! if you wanna do it, then do it!)

I went to bed at 9:30 with a migraine and have been up for the last hour as the migraine has mostly dissipated and my sleep schedule is now me staying up until 1 am nightly because hanging up the phone is damn near impossible. My stomach is still a disaster but I should be fine come morning.
I still have to study for and take my last final. Since I have a 48 hour window to take it I may as well open it this morning and just read up on what it’s about versus studying everything. Hopefully my migraine hangover takes it easy on me. [Yes, we usually have open book finals in my program. No, it does not really make them any easier.]
This Christmas is a shitshow. Literally have decorated nothing, got a few gifts for the littles, and will probably be giving Noah cash. No plans to celebrate with family, which is fine with me, but I should probably plan something fun to eat.
I think I need to start planning a post-pandemic vacation or something, to have something to at least daydream about that is possibly doable. There is so much up in the air about the next year of my life that it feels like there’s nothing concrete (other than finishing school) to look forward to. Wanting to move out of state and having no real idea what my work life will look like post-graduation is exciting but also stressful. My brain wants something concrete to cling to in the future, but I guess that would all just be a facade anyway as I have no control over the future. It’ll all shake out but woof in the meantime. Also, adding a partner into the mix is 🥰🤯.
It’s almost tax season, which I love. And I got my year end review and compensation update today which was the same as always, no surprise. I’m simultaneously socking away as much as I can in savings (partially because I’ve never truly had savings and partially because it would cost me around $10k to open my own firm) and giving to as many places as I can rn because this year has been incredibly difficult financially on so many people. I reserve the right to bitch about my job, however, I am still very grateful I have one and am cognizant of the fact that I am in a good position in comparison with others. The looming evictions and lack of care for its people shown by our government make me absolutely sick and all I can do about that is help where I’m able financially and do my part as a CHAP volunteer.
Anyway, this has been a middle of the night sort of post-migraine brain dump.

Hi Cam! I’m so looking forward to break cos once his week ends I can go to the ranch way more during break! Kurapika loves to cuddle with you and will gladly do so all day long!im happy my leg is doing better too it was so annoying that I couldn’t do everything by myself. Had fought start to the day with my parents screaming at eachother about my glasses. The lenses are super dark cos I’m hypersensitive to light and without them light causes physical pain. And my dad hates them. He only (1/?) 🥀
Thinks about himself and what he likes! It’s so annoying. Most of the time I completely tune him out but when my parents talk about me I listen so I can hear what they’re saying. Last night they were whispering about how they don’t like how quiet I am. I talk to people f they talk to me but I don’t start conversations face to face because it scares me. My glasses help my migraines immensely and some anxiety coz it takes longer for the sensory overload to set in. I’ve considered getting 2/? 🥀
Contact version of my glasses just so people shut up and leave me alone. I’m super uncomfortable with the idea of sticking something in my eye and leaving it there but I also don’t think I can take family members asking me to take of my glasses that I need to fucking see and not have a migraine and potential anxiety attack just cos they like to see my eyes. It feels like I’m not good enough as I am and that I can’t be me. They don’t like how I dress cos I usually try to wear gothic stuff 3/? 🥀
And they don’t like that it’s almost always all black. It’s like I can’t be who I am and I just need to leave soon. I can’t wait to move out so I can get away from them. I want to go low contact only cos my sister is going to be there and she will get all the criticism because my brother is the favorite. Sorry for unloading all of this on you! I just can’t process why this is happening and why I’m not good enough as myself. I hope you have a wonderful day you deserve it! Kurapika loves you!5/5🥀
Am I missing one message by chance? If so I’m sorry this was all that was in my ask box!! 
OOOO YAYY IM EXCITED FOR YOU TO HAVE MORE TIME AT THE RANCH!!! THATS GONNA BE SO MUCH YOU DESERVE THE GOOD TIMES!!! AWWWWW KURAPIKA EEEEE THE LOVE OF MY LIFE AHHH I JUST WANT ALL HIS CUDDLES I AM SLEEEPY HEHE <3
Oh no ahhh love I’m so sorry to hear all this :( First off LET ME SEND YOU SOME HUGS!!!! You are such a wonderful human I just love you and I’m sorry your family can't see just how wonderful you are!! You deserve the whole world. I promise you are enough, even if you don’t feel it rn because of your parents. Honestly parents can be the worst I’ve had my parents tell me such hurtful things and like they didn’t even realize it hurt me. But it did and stuck with me and I am still working towards unlearning it. So really all I can advise is for you to keep your chin up and keep working towards finding your worth. Because you are truly amazing. You have such a big and kind heart!! Your passions are so lovely and I know you just ROCK that gothic style eeee that style is so pretty!!! You’re just the best ever and know even if you don't see it or your family dont, others do and love you soo much!! You are enough and even more I promise!!! I hope you’re able to get out of their soon because you deserve such a more loving environment where you can grow and bloom into the person you are!!! YOU ARE JUST WONDERFUL!!! I know my words can only reach so far but I mean them with my whole heart!!! 
Also on the glasses topic, I would keep trying to keep those glasses. They help you and you need them. Is there any family member (even distance) that could possibly help stick up for you? Contacts scare me so I understand your fear surrounding them and hate thinking you’d have to go through that!!
I hope your days start getting better<3 Just think soon you will be at the ranch and getting to relax and feel comforted!! SENDING LOVE<33 And know I’m always here and you never have t apologize for venting to me!!

Author Interview Game
Ahh thanks for the tag @pandora15 and @giggles-and-freckles!
Name: Kasey
Fandoms: primarily Star Wars right now! Of course there’s been others I’ve dabbled in over the years, but Star Wars is my steadfast ride or die lol.
Where you post: I post my longer, more involved fics to ao3, and my short stuff from prompts on tumblr. I feel like I consider my ao3 as a portfolio of the fics I put the most time and effort into, and tumblr is just for fun and fulfilling prompts.
Most popular oneshot: Shelter!
Which cracks me up, because while I totally loved writing it, it’s so self-indulgent and kind of plotless lol—basically some classic sickfic, where Obi-Wan and Anakin are trapped in the briefing room while Obi-Wan has a migraine. I’m glad people like it!
Most popular multichap: Roots is my only multichapter fic lol, so it’s the most popular by default. But yikes there are some things about Roots that make me bigtime cringe now (mostly my misguided thoughts about what ‘attachment’ was before I got on tumblr lol, and my stilted pacing and clunky metaphors), even though it’s only been a few months since I wrote it—but hey, such is growth lol
Favorite story you’ve written: Ooh probably In Memoriam. It was the hardest one to write I think, and I remember having to really work for the pacing because there’s so much tension—like how Anakin gets more and more upset, and Obi-Wan is feeling sick but also wants to keep it together to figure out what’s bothering Anakin, etc etc. So trying to figure out the peaks and valleys and all that was a fun challenge.
I also have a lot of love for the fics @katierosefun and I wrote together, like loose stitches—that’s just been such an awesome thing to do, and they all have a special place in my heart!
Fic you were nervous to post: Some Things You Just Can’t Speak About! I’d never written Bail Organa before so I was worried about getting his voice right, and I was worried the Council scene was gonna be flat and boring, and I was scared of making Obi-Wan come across as too fragile, or the Council as cold and unfeeling.
How you choose your titles: they usually come from a line in the fic that points to the theme somehow. I almost always “find” my title as I’m writing—like there’s usually a moment where I write a line and go OH there it is—there’s the title! Either that, or an appropriate Taylor swift lyric lol.
Do you outline? Yup, almost always! I find it helps me beat writer’s block—my outlines are often almost like a really shitty first draft, like the whole story is there in detail, dialogue and all, it’s just super poorly written lol. But somehow it’s a loophole to my perfectionism, cause my brain goes “ah! It’s bullet points! So we’re allowed to write trash!” But gOD FORBID I try to write the first draft without bullet points or brain shuts off and threatens to never let me write anything ever again—
Complete: I have 27 fics on ao3, and I’ve posted somewhere around 24 just on tumblr. So technically 51 total, since I started posting stuff in April. (There’s also the tomb of my unpublished fic from before this year, when I just wrote for myself and didn’t share it, but I feel like those don’t count lol)
In progress: i just started working on a post-Geonosis fic where Obi-Wan as Anakin are both grieving in different ways and over different things. Anakin is helping Obi-Wan cut his hair when it turns into an argument which turns into a breakdown, which turns into some comfort and hugs and happier things :))) I’m also doing some requests, and a fic where Obi-Wan is having dizzy spells, but doesn’t tell anyone about them until everyone finds out in the most dramatic way possible lol
Coming soon/not yet started: waaaaay too many. I have a doc called “sw brainstorm and ideas” and it’s 15 pages of nothing but fic ideas lol. But the few I’ll probably get to soonest are here in this post :)
Prompts: I love taking prompts! Rn I have sooooooo many unanswered in my inbox. I was trying to write 2 per day this week, but I kinda got thrown off yesterday—things just got a little messier in the mental health department, and I needed to take a break from them to help myself feel better. I’m hoping to get back to them soon when I’m feeling a bit more myself, which I’m definitely starting to :)
Upcoming Work You’re Most Excited About: I’ve outlined a continuation of this fic, which I’m calling “Burial,” and it’s a 5+1 things of all the times Obi-Wan buried someone or something important. Also hype for this fic about Anakin giving Obi-Wan a haircut, and a surprise one involving....lit nerd Obi-Wan, my fave
No pressure tags: @lightasthesun @katierosefun @soplantyourownflowers @obirain @tessiete and any other writers who wanna jump on this!

I’m 23 and I physically can’t get pregnant rn. I’m on medications to help with my anxiety and insomnia and migraines. Also I smoke weed. So like I have to be clean for at least six months before I plan to start trying to have a baby. I was brown and raised catholic, but I definitely have more liberal opinions on things. If I were to get pregnant within the next few months, more likely years, I couldn’t raise a child. I can barely take care of myself.
This!!! Bc I don’t want people to think the whole abortion not being able to take care of a kid applies to just teens. It applies to any woman at any age.

How do you stay on track when cravings hit?
How do you stay on track when cravings hit? Is it harder to lose weight after pregnancy? And can you break your sugar addiction without a keto diet?
These questions are answered this week by our food-addiction expert, Bitten Jonsson, RN:
How do I stay on track when cravings hit?
Dear Bitten,
You have been a true inspiration, and your videos on going through a sugar detox have been so motivating. They have helped me a lot and the tips are very effective.
However, this last week, I’ve had more cravings for fruits and potatoes. I’m very worried that this can be the start of a relapse. I’ve been on a sugar detox for the last 51 days and would love to continue. Would appreciate your tips on how to stay on track.
Many thanks! Rosherman
Dear Rosherman,
I’m grateful to hear that my knowledge and experience is of help to you. And I know very well that we all have periods of more cravings and it feels tough to stray on track. Sometimes it’s just being bored with our food plan and our addictive illness wants us to have our ‘drug’ back. This happens to all of us.
First, I give you one of my favorite tools. Take it one day at a time. Make a commitment every morning to stick to your food plan just for today. That takes some of the pressure off.
Then we need many more tools to deal with our sugar addiction and life in general. I advise you to read an old but great book called Staying Sober by the late Terence T Gorski. That book has helped me more than any other book. Just switch out the word alcohol for ‘sugar’.
Look over if there are any risk situations. Usually, they’re stress factors, but don’t have to be. Sometimes cravings come out of the blue.
We also need support from others who are on the same journey as we are. It’s very important to have some people to talk to and ask, “If this were your problem, what would you do?” Listen to the answers you get. The cravings can fog our brain, it can be like a dull pain attack where we don’t see the most obvious solution ourselves. If you need, I have several professionals in my team that can help you get over this hurdle. Just send an email to bitten.jonsson@bittensaddiction.com and I’ll answer. I like to send you a huge congratulation to 51 days off sugar.
Warm regards, Bitten
Is it harder to lose weight after pregnancy?
Hi there,
I’ve been successful on keto and lost 88 pounds (40 kilos) in one year prior to my pregnancy. But I went off keto during my pregnancy and gained all the lost weight back. Now I’m six and a half months postpartum, and I’ve been on keto (with a couple of cheat days) in the last three to four months and I cannot lose weight.
I do 16:8 intermittent fasting. I do everything the same way as I did prior to my pregnancy, but somehow it doesn’t work this time. Does pregnancy change things in a way that stops keto from working? I obviously sleep less and I’m more stressed, but I don’t breastfeed anymore.
Kamilla
Kamilla,
Yes, pregnancy does change a lot of things. Our female bodies are amazing in that we can become pregnant and give birth. But if you’re a sugar addict (it sounds like you are) who’s relapsed during pregnancy, it will be much tougher to get your body back in shape. It will take time.
My advice is to contact one of my specially trained counselors to help you. There is a lot of information you need to get back on track. Email me, bitten.jonsson@bittensaddiction.com, and I will get you in touch with one.
Warm regards, Bitten
Can I break my sugar addiction without keto?
I’ve done the keto diet three times before, for two, four, and seven days respectively. I always end up with heart palpitations and weakness, and it feels like eating so few carbs doesn’t work for my body. Can I heal my sugar addiction without doing keto? And how would I do that?
Tina
Dear Tina,
When you’re dealing with sugar addiction, it can be very tough for your sensitive body and brain to go from high carb to keto, and consequently, you experience many withdrawal symptoms (listed below).
My experience is that keto is the best food plan for us in the long run, we just need to adapt slowly. I recommend my clients to learn about the addicted brain and Food Junkies by Dr. Vera Tarman is a great book to start. Knowledge is power.
Detoxing can be very tough and you need to be kind to yourself. I recommend you start with a liberal low-carb diet and that you do that until you feel stable.
Then, gradually lower the carbs. For us sugar addicts, it’s often important to stay away from all dairy products except for butter and ghee. When this way of eating feels stable you can slowly proceed to a keto diet.
Don’t forget to give yourself time and patience. Many of us are too harsh on our bodies, and we forget that it took a long time to become sick and that it will take some time to become healthy again.
It’s also very important for us sugar addicts to know that changing what we’re eating is only the first step. We need many new tools in order to change and maintain our new lifestyle.
Relapse prevention is one of the most important tools for us to learn. We also need the support of likeminded people who understand what it’s like to suffer from sugar addiction. So please join our group on Facebook. And we have many very skilled counselors worldwide today that you might want to contact.
