What the Fandom: What is an OTP?

Short version: The source of precious fangirl tears.

The long version... is pretty darn long! Fanlore defines an OTP as an abbreviation of One True Pairing. That means that the shipper has one 'ship' that they're really invested in, though the term has changed a little over the years (if you're not familiar with shipping, check out this card). There are a lot of different things this can mean though, which I'll explore here.
I've really enjoyed making cards to explain the sometimes confusing terms for people new to fandom. You can see the rest of them here! You might already have an OTP and just not realize it!

Are you ready to find out?

One True Pairing

The Marvel fandom has a lot of these. An OTP can mean that there's one ship above all others that the shipper cares about. However, the term has come to mean something more all-encompassing as fans become more inclusive. Instead of having one OTP, many shippers have several.
Two major OTPs in the Marvel fandom right now are Stony and Stucky (pictured above). The first pairing (Steve Rogers and Tony Stark) was very popular before the MCU films because of the dynamic the characters had in the comics. After the release of Winter Soldier, fandom shifted and began shipping Steve Rogers with Bucky Barnes. These two ships are not essentially mutually exclusive. Though often not within the same fic or fanart, fans can and do ship both as an OTP.

Other popular OTPs...

Clintasha (Clint Barton and Natasha Romanoff) were extremely popular after the release of the first Avengers movie. The costume piece Scarlett Johannsen added to the character- the arrow necklace- was often cited as textual evidence of some sort of relationship beyond the Avengers. Fans also ship Clint x Coulson and Natasha x Bucky.
Science Bros (Tony Stark and Bruce Banner) also blossomed after the release of the first Avengers film. Fans adored the banter and rapport the two characters built up during the movie. Another OTP is Pepper x Tony, particularly post Iron Man 3.
Thorki (Thor and Loki) became popular after the first Thor movie. Fans responded to the strong emotional drama of the (adopted) brothers' struggles. The night and day dynamic they have has been fodder for OTPs for a long time; these shippers were carrying on the tradition. Though less popular, another OTP is Jane x Thor.

Spideypool (Wade Wilson and Peter Parker) is popular because of the dynamic the characters have in the comics. Deadpool even refers to the popularity of the ship, which is completely in tune with the metahumor the character is known for.
Charles-x-Erik (Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr) has been a popular OTP for several years, though the fandom got a boost after the release of Days of Future Past.

Are you ready for the next level?

OT3

Because the more the merrier! Similar to the term OTP, an OT3 can signify a shipper's One True Threesome, but often it is used to indicate a favorite ship, instead of an exclusive one.
The Marvel fandom has a multitude of OT3 ships including: Steve/Bucky/Peggy (pictured), Mystique/Charles/Xavier, Bruce/Tony/Pepper, Sam/Steve/Bucky, Deadpool/Spider-Man/Daredevil, Natasha/Clint/Coulson, and Bucky/Natasha/Steve.
(Fanart by vylla).

Are you ready for the NEXT level?

OT4s, OT5s, OT6s, and beyond...

Because Marvel is often telling an ensemble-based story, the fandom frequently has OTPairings that extend beyond two or three people. Though the OT+ terminology is still used to indicate a ship, the larger the group becomes the more often it is used as an indicator that the fan is invested in the group as a team, instead of as a romantically attracted group of people.

Here's a few examples of OT+ ships:

OT4: Steve, Natasha, Bucky, & Sam
OT5: Peter Quill, Gamora, Drax, Groot, & Rocket
OT6: Thor, Steve, Natasha, Bruce, Clint, & Tony
(Fanart by thewintertrash).

One thing to keep in mind: Someone's OTP is *very* important to them.

And OTP is an important part of being a fan for some.

It's how many fans express their love for the original media, either by reading and writing fanfiction, creating fanart and other fanworks, composing meta and theories about the pairing, or just chatting with other fans who are also invested in the ship. You're not required to like the ship, or agree with it, but it's considered extremely inappropriate to go into spaces dedicated to an OTP just to bash it. These spaces include tags, the comments on fic, and chatrooms dedicated to an OTP (this is not an exhaustive list).

Not feeling it? You're in luck!

The fandom community has provided a term for fans to use when they encounter a ship they don't like: The NOTP. You can probably guess what it means. The NOTP is a pairing that you. Just. Don't. Like. This can be for any reason. Maybe you don't see the dynamic working like other fans do. Maybe you just don't like one of the characters involved. Maybe something about the pairing makes you uncomfortable because of the power exchange involved.

All your reasons are valid! Just remember:

So don't go hating on someone else's OTP.

It doesn't make for a healthy community!
Fandom can be a strange place if you're not familiar with the territory. Hopefully with this new understanding of the terminology you can safely traverse the world of fandom, and maybe pick up a few ships of your own (please do, we will have SO MUCH to talk about!).

Happy fangirling* everyone!

*boys can be fangirls too, don't worry ^_^

I love Clintasha! Best OTP ever!
@trin1991 ooooh I should look into that it sounds awesome!!
@shannonl5 i can't remember the name of the story but there is a stony one on fanfiction.net where the person is using the mummy but writing it with avengers characters and I'm pretty sure from the last chapter i read that the person isn't finished writing it yet but if you like the mummy you'll like it mixed with the avengers
@trin1991 ahhh gotcha, yeah a fic can really make or break a ship. I honestly wasn't sold on Stony until I found some really good fic for it and now of course I end up loving it hahaha
@shannonl5 I've read some too and that's why i don't personally like the ship or ship it myself.

After your walk you both headed to watch the sunset together. feeling sentimental you uploaded to your snapchat^^ you parted ways shortly after the sunset due to him needing rest before getting up way early to leave. the next morning RM sent you snapchat when you woke up and saw that you immediately smiled. babe I already miss you. good morning. have a safe flight you get about your day knowing you wont here a response back anytime soon. hours later you and rm text back and forth on his break. but It was an after he told you had to go to rehearsal that you receive a surprise text that sad thinking of you jagi and... then a moment later your snapchat notification goes off. what exactly do you want me to show you? my feet he resinds back in the way you knew he would babe that is why you love me because you always make me smile. now get back to work I need sleep. goodnight jagi. I love you too. days go by. you and Namjoon super busy but only send out simple texts of thinking of you and I miss yous texts. sprinkled in there are I loves yous. both your hearts earn to be near each other. You where having a particularly bad day and on the verge of tears when snapchat notification pops on your phone. You open it and see it's from your babe, the love of your ife, the light of your soul You start to sob even harder. you respond with I wish I was with you too a few minutes later after you pressed send your phone rings. You answer with a raspy voice "hello" immediately Namjoon can tell you where crying "baby, what's wrong?" the sound of his voice opens the dam inside you even more. He listens and his heart slowly breaks with the sound of crying and sobbing. He so desperately wants to be near you to wrap you in his embrace. he tells you this. he starts to sing to you. You begin to calm down. Once the sobs resided you begin to. tell him about your bad day. How everything seems to be going wrong how at work you keep making mistakes. How your coworkers are making a big deal out of everything and saying hurtful comments about you and your work and how you just really miss him and how you miss your family and that you feel so alone. After you unleashed on these emotions on him. you start to smile. "I didnt realize how much I needed to hear your voice babe. I really miss you and love you. I feel 70% better after unloading everything. Tell me about you." he chuckles and tells you hes glad that you feel better. Not to worry about work. That everyone has bad days even him. He had one yesterday. You asked why his day was bad yesterday. He explained he broke his phone case. He was having difficulty with a part of the choreo and that he really missed you and his family as well. You both exchange I love yous and hang up and get back to work. Before you head in you open the snapchat notification and see which made you smile brighter and filled your heart with so much warmth, love and confidence. The rest of day went better. You decided to shop a new phone case for him. Then you drop it off at BigHit and they stated they would ensure it gets in his hands. You were thinking he would get it once he came back from the tour. Though much to your pleasant surprise a week later you get a snapchat from Namjoon You smile brightly take a pic and send it back. weeks go by with phone calls,texts back and forth and you where counting down to the small break rm will have for about a two week period. on his break he sends you immediately call him. "hello jagi" "BABE! YOU ARE HERE. IM ON MY WAY!" he chuckles at your excitement. you spend two weeks with him before he leaves again. two weeks after he left you sent him a text saying you missed him and where ust having a hard day. he respond knowing that you need to see his face and then sends an additional text listening to our song and thinking of you before I head up on stage. love you you think to yourself how you deserve someone so beautiful and precious. after the tour was all finish, it was Namjoon that had to wait for you to come back from seeing your family in the states. You sent him a text message that your plane landed and that your all settled in your apartment. You where about to send another text when a Snapchat notification pops up. You chuckle of course I'll come over. Maybe we can cuddle too? of course baby cuddles can definitely fit in this night somewhere. bring clothes.

A New Suga Fanfic coming soon..
would anyone be Interested in a reader/yoongi fanfic? It is going to based of an old country song that I adore... Strawberry Wine by Deanna Carter... The story is an AU fic but a coming of age story. You spend the summers at your grandparents farm with your best friend Taehyung. You aren't a stranger to the college boys that your grandpa hires in the summer to help out with the harvesting and the running of his farm. You grandpa has animals, and produce on his farm but you and Taehyung usually spend it in the Strawberry fields. Your grandpa also makes wine from the strawberries. What you didn't expect was two college boys helping with the strawberries and the wine making. The college kids your grandfather usually hires help with the animals and other functions on the farm. You spend your summer falling in love and not hoping for heartache come September? You naively fall hard but as you get older it becomes a fleeting thought across your mind... If interested in the story comment below. I'm looking forward to writing a story of summer love and first love... but also a story about growing up Suga's Genius' @VeronicaArtino @SugaKookieV @SweetDuella @jeonraeyoo Suga's starchildren @MelissaGarza @Starbell808 if you would like to be added to the official Suga cmty taglist comment below.

10 Secrets That Experts Of Dog Photography Don’t Want You To Know
Dog photography is a popular photographic medium nowadays. This might be a picture of your furry friend for your Instagram feed. Or a professional drawing at a dog show. Knowing how to photograph dogs is a great way to practice Photography in general. You don’t need your own dog photo studio to take great pictures. Read all the ten secrets information you need to do Photography. Focus Your Dog Character For Photography Taking Photography of dogs makes a lot of sense if you can focus/capture their behaviour in a photo. It’s fun to enjoy a popular activity, such as taking Photography of dogs in their favourite spots, tapping on the porch, or grabbing a Frisbee. To capture a dog’s character, ask yourself what is unique about your dog and try to capture that character in front of the camera. Use A Lens Fast For Dog Photography. Dogs don’t stay! Wink, you’ll miss their paradox, so it’s essential to use a faster lens and a faster shutter speed. My go-to lens is a 70-200mm f2.8 telephoto lens that is fast enough to freeze motion on that all-important shot, and you can zoom in and out quickly if needed. It also draws well in the background when taking photos. Base lenses are also great – 50mm or 85mm works well. Make sure you open your roller shutter. Of course, opening the shutter will give you faster shutter speeds and fantastic bokeh. But it can also obscure parts of your subject’s face. Use Dog Photography Natural Light. You don’t have to worry about flashes and complicated lighting settings when shooting dogs Photography. The best option is to use natural and constant light; this won’t scare them or make red eyes on your photos. https://www.clippingpathclient.com/dog-photography/ Whether you use ambient or studio lighting, the general rule is to choose bright, diffuse lighting that will help create a more pleasing portrait. If you’re in a slightly darker environment or your puppy doesn’t respond well to bright light, you can always increase the ISO for faster action shots, even in dark weather. High ISO, you can shoot quickly! When taking photos outdoors, sunny weather is ideal for balanced, diffused lighting. A sunny day is more challenging to take pictures than a sunny day, so don’t worry if the weather is sunny. Focus On The Dog’s Photography Eyes Your dog’s eyes should become the focus of your Photography. As humans, we are well connected with eye contact. Please focus on the dog’s eyes and use them to your advantage for dog photos. This, of course, draws the viewer’s attention to the subject. Focus on the eyes first, then reset focus as needed and apply the method again. The moving picture of a dog gets attention. It’s like a picture of a man. You can use your eyes to create depth, an unusual eye colour, or to create a sense of privacy. Use a wider aperture (f / 2.8 or less) to improve this feel! https://www.clippingpathclient.com/car-photography/ Add People To Dog Photography. The best photo of the dog alone or the owner is a classic photo. Use automatic lighting to prevent lightning from disturbing animals. The standard 50mm lens is ideal for this type of image. Shallow DOF (Depth of Field) focuses on the object in the centre of the frame, so keep your eyes focused. Remember to live fast when taking photos like this, as animals can quickly get into trouble if they take photos outdoors. Choose An Excellent Background For Dog Portrait Photography The background of the frame is as important as your content. Get a beautiful background in a different colour from the dog. Tree trunks, wood, gates, benches, bricks, and doors make beautiful backgrounds or frames for photographing dogs.
Harvest Full Moon (18+)
Plot: Once upon a night the stars shined so bright, that even on a camp night, you were fooled to believe beautiful amber eyes were that of your best friend. Little did you know he was so much more… in more ways than one. Cast: You & Jackson Wang 18+ : Language, sensual content ______________________________________________ “Jiejie!~” I was hiking through the forest with my friends, and absentmindedly was becoming lost in the beauty of nature, until my best friend grabbed my arm. “Jiejie, didn’t you hear me calling you?” I blinked at him as he just crocked an eyebrow and gave me his sweet smile. I swear it only lets me see his true self. His smile was always so genuine when it was directed to me. Others only got a percentage of it, but I got the full thing. “Yah! Come on guys, we need to pick a campsite soon, it’s a full moon. Who knows what crazy shit will happen?” One of our friends said as they call out to us. I rested my hand on his shoulder, before breaking my arm free from his soft grasp. “Sorry for spacing, it's just so beautiful out here, but they are right, let’s help find a good campground.” Jackson nodded his head, before taking my hand from his shoulder and interlocking his fingers with mine. “Alright, but I’m holding this hand to make sure you don’t wander off like that again.” I giggled at his comment before we rejoin the group. Soon enough, around Dusk, we found out campgrounds, and set up our tents, and started a fire. I was setting up my tent best when Jackson barged inside with his sleeping bag. “Mind if I crash in your tent tonight?” I just sighed and shook my head, before snatching his sleeping bag away and setting it up. “You know I won’t say no to you. You’re like my guard puppy.” I smirked, before turning towards him and petting his head. He playfully pretended to the nipple at me, but I swore his eyes turn from their beautiful chocolate drops to a golden amber for a moment. “You know how I feel about you calling me a puppy.” I just stuck my tongue at him, before rejoining the group once again. We all had fun, roasting marshmallows, eating food we prep in a cooler, and drinking. We even started to telling ghost stories. When it was Jackson's turn, we were all pretty much wasted. So we would most likely believe anything at that moment. He told us a tail about how during a harvest moon, a wolf would roam the forest, in search of his pack, only after finding his mate. So that he would be able to return to them as a true Alpha. If he doesn’t, the pack would slater all those that he came within the forest. It sounded more like a fairy tale than a ghost story to me. Everyone started to talk about something else, as I got distracted once again by the beauty of nature. My site landed the massive orange full moon that dominated over the night sky, hiding behind the trees. I felt someone touch my hand and saw that it was one of the guys that I didn’t know because he was a friend of a friend. “The moon is very beautiful, but I think it’s nothing compared to you.” Chills ran down my spine when he gave me a creepy smile. Didn’t help that he smelt like booze either. I was about to pull away when someone yanked my free hand and pulled me up onto my feet. They then spun me around so smoothly that I landed softly into their chest. “Sorry man, but this sunshine is actually with me.” I realized the person that saves me from the creep was Jackson, making me smile to myself. I closed my eyes and relaxed while taking in his scent. He always smelt like cinnamon, apples, and amber wood. It was always so damn calming for me. I swear I was developing a crush on him, but I didn’t want to lose him, so I would never confess. I was snapped out of my trance though when I felt Jackson’s chest rumble a bit. “It’s all cool man, didn’t know you two were a thing. I heard you call her ‘Jeijei’, and since that’s mandarin for older sister, I thought you were family.” I turned to look at the creep, backing away with his hands held up in defense, yet his beer still in hand. “I call her that, because we’re childhood friends, didn’t think that would be a crime.” His body shook a bit as he chuckled. I looked up in time to see his eyes flash amber again. Jackson looked down at me, and smiled so warmly, before petting my head. “How about we go for a walk to sober up, y/n.” I was a bit stun to hear him say my name so informal for once, that all I could be nod my head. He removed his arm from around me and interlocked our fingers again. He led the way, as we walked into the dark forest. To my surprised, it wasn’t as dark as I expected, but that was thanks to the full moon. “I honestly thought I was going to have to punch that asshole.” I looked from the moon, to see Jackson being serious. He seems different and very angry, which was rare. He was always so happy around me, came to me when sad for comfort, but hide when anger. “He knew I was always by your side, yet he dares try to hit on you. So glad I’m staying in your tent. He creeps me out.” Jackson sighed heavily and ran his fingers through his hair after taking his cap off. “I’m glad too, for the same reason.” He instantly looked my way when I spoke up. He seems surprised I agreed so heavily with him. “My instincts told me something was wrong when he touches my hand.” I held up our laced fingers and smiled sweetly towards him. “This is the only hand that allows to touch me because you’re the only one I feel safe to be around right now.” Jackson’s eyes flashed away as his smile lite up his face. “Hey Jackson, can I asked you something?” His smile faded as his eyebrow raised, showing a confused expression. “Yeah, you can ask me anything always.” I pointed towards his eyes but then shook my head and looked away. “Never mind, I think the alcohol is playing with my vision.” I pulled my hand free and walked a little farther until I made it to a riverbank. “No, it’s not. There is something I actually need to tell you, Jeijei.” I turned around to see him hanging his head and his hand balled into a fist. “That story I told you is actually true.” He looked up and his eyes were glowing amber and staying like that. “Werewolves are real, and I am an Alpha’s son. I’m not allowed to return to my pack until I find my mate. The full moon actually does affect us because it makes the wolf side stronger. Resulting in being harder to hide that side.” He pushed his hair back, as he slowly took a step closer. I was lost in those amazing amber eyes to even take a step away from him. I was drunk enough to believe he was telling the truth. “I would rather be sober for me to say this, but this is the last chance I will have to rejoin my pack. Since I’m 26 now, and my father would have to pick a new hire if I fail again.” Jackson reached out to brush a loose strain of my hair behind my ear. “At first, I just wanted to be free, and grow my career, but I can’t deny it anymore. I found my soul mate a long time ago, just hid it from the world.” I closed my eyes and rested my cheek into his hand. “Are you even listening to my confession?” He chuckled, making me look up at him to see that wonderful smile. “Yes, you’re telling me you’re a werewolf, and I’m your soulmate. This has to be that dream I’ve been having on repeat though. Cause it’s the only time you confess to me, and know I love you like a woman loves a man.” I whimpered in pain when Jackson moved his hand to pinch my cheek. When I stop wincing, he lean in forward and smirked. “You love me? Why didn’t you say so sooner? I would of show you this side sooner and made you mine permanently.” I went into shock as sober from realizing this was real. His smirk show his teeth had become sharper too. “Give me permission to make you mine, you already know how loyal I am. Plus, my mother raised me to treat my mate as the queen that she is.” I finally took a step back as I looked around us. Jackson started to strip in front me, shocking me back into frozen mode. “I’ll even prove it, since I’m already unconditionally loyal to you.” His body heat radiated off his skin in smoke before hair rapidly grew out and bones cracked. Soon enough a giant wolf on two free stood before me. I stumble backwards, and nearly fell into the river, until a paw caught me, and rested on my back. His eyes were back to chocolate drops, and his breath was so warm against my skin. He started to sniff at me, making me giggle at how much it tickled. Jackson’s jet-black wolf form pulled in close to his soft fur covered body, after licking my cheek. He felt so warm and soft that I couldn’t help being relax into his embrace. Which I did until I felt something hard and warm pressing against my stomach. I squeaked and jump out of his arms when I noticed it was his hard member. My hands cover my mouth as I stared at him in awe. It was huge which made me wonder how he worked it. Jackson seem to have become shy and try to turn around, but I grabbed his arm lightly and stopped him. “So are you hard like that, because of me?” I pointed down towards his shaft, as he licked my cheek and nuzzled my cheek, making it his way of saying yes. I reached out to glaze my fingers over the tip, earning a soft growl from him. That one single noise along as me feeling weak in the knees. Jackson turned human, and was not standing in front me, naked, whilst holding me close to him. “Don’t touch unless you want to be mine, missy.” I just gawked at the naked and well-built young man before me, that I call my best friend. My shock finally faded as I realized something. All of this was LEGIT. Jackson was standing naked in front of me, after becoming a wolf man. Not only that he was confessing to me. So if the story he told was true… I looked down at me feet as I process all of this finally. A howl from near by caught both our attention. I wonder if that was from his pack he mention, and when I glanced at him, I could see his sad facial expression. I turned to face him and tilt my head to the side. “Words Jackson. I can read your emotions yes, but not your mind.” I crossed my arms, as he looked up at me with sadden eyes. “Wolves call their soulmates just simply mate, and my pack just heard me say that I found you.” Jackson rubbed the back of his head and looked away as he explain the situation. “They just reported it to the Alpha, and my father is going to make me force you into being mine in front of the pack. That’s something I’m not comfort doing since you’re someone dear to me.” He looked back at me, as I just blinked at him. “Force me? How?” Jackson moved to at least put his boxers back on, before coming to stand closer. “Unless you agree to be my girlfriend right now and allow me to leave my wolf mark on you. Which is more painless” Jackson looked around before speaking, again. “Alpha, aka Dad, will come here with the rest of the pack, and use his Alpha word to make me force my self on you. Since I haven’t taken power, that will work on me, and I don’t want to force you into having sex with me to distract you from my mark.” My jaw dropped from what he just said. I wasn’t a virgin, since well I accidently already head my first time with Jackson on a heavily drunk night. Yet, they would go to that extreme. “So what really happens if I say yes?” A spark seem to have appear before he smile as bright as the moon light. “If you say yes, I will how say in how we go about the marking.” He brushed my hair off my shoulder, exposing the nape of my neck that he was eyeing. “I will slowly leave my mark on you until my fangs each the bonding pressure point, right about here.” His fingers traced up the nape of my neck, before resting behind my head. Our eyes were lock and I swear I could see the passion and love he had in them. “Then when you were ready at a later date, we can complete the bond at our own pace and alone.” My body moved on its own, as my arms wrapped around his neck. “Jackson? When did you really know I was your ‘mate'. ” I did quotation finger gesture behind his head when a spoke. I hick though, when his warm and soft hands rested on my hips. “Since the day I met you at that house party. Its why I was secretly fighting off guys, and resulted in our hot and heavy first night.” Jackson winked at me before pressing our foreheads together. “I’m really glad you’re not freaking out over this.” He had closed his eyes as a soft smile remain on his relaxed expression. “It makes more sense this way.” Jackson’s eyes shot open and raised an eyebrow. I just giggled at his reaction and ran my fingers through is hair. “You love it when I play with your hair. You eyes always seem to change color and now I know its not me losing it or being exhausted. Plus you’re always over heating body wise.” It was Jackson’s turn to laugh before he peck my nose. “Okay all of that did give it away it seems but playing with someone’s hair shouldn’t count. You love it when I return the favor too.” I couldn’t deny that because I really did love when he play with my hair. Heck he even volunteer to brush and braid it once. I place my hands on his face and pulled him into a soft kiss. He growl, shaking his entire being, when I kissed him. His grip on my hips tighten and pushed me away. Jackson shook his head before leaving it to hang. Howling from a far was closing in, making him sigh heavily. “Jackson, I don’t want to lose you, that’s why I didn’t tell you, my feelings for you are mutual.” I grabbed his forearms and moved in closer, as his eyes got bigger. “Please, mark me. I can’t see my world without you. I don’t want to lose you ever.” It felt like I release Jackson’s collar, before his eyes instantly became right amber, and he smoothly knocked me down onto the ground. Making sure my head didn’t hit the ground at all as he tower me. “I will give you only one last chance to back out…” I cut him off by crushing my lips on his own. He growl again, making his body tremble, but this time he didn’t hold back. Jackson finally return the kiss, slipping his tongue into my mouth to deepen the kiss and start a tongue war. My fingers interlaced themselves in Jackson’s hair, as his hands explored all my curves and edges. I gasped through when one hand found its way under my bra, and the other in my panties. A whimper escape my lips when his fingers started to play with my sensitive nubs. He broke the kiss to have his lips travel towards my neck, leaving me in a mental cloud of ecstasy. I ended up holding my breath for a moment when I felt something sharp gliding along my skin on my shoulder. I just took a deep breath to relax once I felt his tongue glide around my shoulder. When I was able to look down at us, I had no idea he already practically stripped me from my clothes. The fog of pleasure was still in charge, but it was a bit sober to see I was in only my underwear. My shorts around my ankles and my shirt over my breast. I used my other hand to press my fingers into his back, earning a growl-like groan from him. Feel the animalic vibrates from him against my body just made me want him even more. I moved my hips against him and was greeted by his rock-hard member, that broke free from his boxers. My anxiety triggered from the thought of us making love out in the open, and I swear he felt it too. Cause he stop kissing my body, pulled back, and petted my head softly. “Shhh, this is why I have you still somewhat cloth. To give you some kind of comfort.” I started to calm down, as he glided two fingers along my womanhood. “I was gentle last time, right? I’ll be gentle this time too.” I couldn’t help but smile, before he kissed me again to distract me from him and I becoming one once again, but more sober. I closed my eyes and enjoy the sensation of him deep inside of me. It felt so damn right that I didn’t care if it was wrong. Something sharp glided along my shoulder once again, but for some reason, I didn’t feel panic from the idea of pain. Jackson really was doing his best to be gentle with me. I just play with his hair, as he started to move his hip, sending small waves of pleasure through my body, before he pierced my skin with his teeth. His hand moved fast and covered my mouth, as the wave of burning pain instantly replaced the pleasure. I scream into his hand in agony, confused as to why my entire body was on fire. Once his tongue rolled over where he sank his teeth, turning the pain into pleasure in a matter of seconds. My body was on fire for a whole different reason now. We looked into each other’s eyes before Jackson pecked my lips and started to move in and out a bit harder. It was as if he could read what my body wanted. He even found my soft spot, and kept working it, until my back was arch, and my screams were moans of pure pleasure. Jackson never stop kissing me all over, even after we hit both our climaxes. He held me close in his arms as he kissed me all over my face. “I’m sorry.” He whisper softly before pulling out and covering me in more kisses. Once he was done, he pulled back to look at my shoulder. “I didn’t mean to hurt you, I just wanted to please you, and make you mine completely.” I looked over at my shoulder and saw my faint marks that looked like teeth. “It’s how an Alpha’s mark their mate. It’s like a wolf marriage.” I blinked at him a for a bit before I realized he said marriage. “Wait… So we’re married now?” Jackson nodded and kissed my head, before helping me fix my bra and shirt. “In a way, yes. To my pack, we are married, but to the world, we’re just boyfriend and girlfriend.” He smiled softly making me melt underneath him. When I looked into his eyes this time, the amber was gone and was replaced with a rich red. “My sweet Alpha.” I brushed my fingers along his cheek and peck his nose. “I am proud to be your wolfy wife.” We both chuckle at my comment before we got fully dressed. I froze when I noticed we were surrounded by massive wolves. They all howl to the full moon, then seem to bow towards us. “Y/N noona, meet my pack.” He wrapped his arms around me from behind, to give me a back hug. “Everyone I will bring her by after we are done camping without friends. For now, thank you for the welcome.” They all nodded before heading back towards the deep woods. I looked up at him and peck his cheek. “Can we go back to the others now?” Jackson nodded his head before we took each other’s hands and went back to the campground to get some sleep.
