Random excerpt of meg x norman smut that I'll try to actually finish
"What do you want to do?"
She panted out a little, she supposed it might have sounded coy but she spoke softly wanting to be sure he was absolutely comfortable with what they were doing. She held back slightly but struggled with it her fingers instinctively twisting into his shirt. He was too close to stay away from as she perched on the desk with his hips coming between her knees. His response came so fast she could barely respond, his words fell sloppily as he tried to steal another kiss no longer caring about shyness,
"Let me give you what you want."
His voice was breathless and wistful as his hands shakily but eagerly went to her thighs. He looked like he might be drunk as the words spilled with a lost daze. He meant that. Not just as bravado or trying to sound dirty he really wanted to make her happy in any way he could.
His words sent her reeling with desire as her sweet Norman was clearly so tied up for her. Seeing him in such need of her and wanting to give his all made her completely come undone. Falling into his chest she fawned actually sighing out loud and biting her lip as her hands slid up his chest and buried into his shirt so she could pull him closer.
He didn't have time to get flustered from the way she practically wrapped around him as her lips on his again and again silenced any of those thoughts away. Answering his question she let her knees touch his hips which was easy since he was much larger than her.
She sighed between heavy breaths and a hand smoothing up his shoulder and neck. Her fingers trailed into his hair making his scalp tingle.
"Make love to me."
That was enough for him to finally completely come undone which actually made him more composed. Composed enough to not just mindlessly lose himself in her, his hands suddenly gripped at her hips and with immense ease that he often kept hidden he lifted her eager to do exactly what she said.
The sudden uncharacteristic show of strength made her squeak in surprise and quickly bury into his neck to start kissing him there. They barely noticed the doorway or the journey to the room, too wrapped up in kissing each other feverishly to pay mind to where they were going. The only thing he managed to do was slam the door shut behind them sloppily with a kick then drop her onto the bed unceremoniously.
But she didn't mind the loud crashing and his sudden burst of strength being so attractive she actually mewled in delight biting her lip and holding her hands out for him to join her as quickly as possible. Quickly she grabbed her glasses and tossed them off to the nightstand so they wouldn't be in the way anymore just as he swooped down sitting at the edge of the bed and leaning over so he could wrap his arm around her waist and kiss her down into the mattress.

I just want fluff between Meg and Norman
-Meg smiling at him whenever they say goodbye and she just puts her hands together behind her and sways side to side sweetly waiting. He know what that means and gets sheepish and she just grins and slightly tilts her head up expectantly. It's a ritual of theirs. He leans down and plants a kiss on her lips which makes her hum happily, she pats his chest then bounces away before he can get too flustered.
-Meg is the one who flirts a lot more, often sweetly, but she can be direct when she wants to be. Even when they've been in a relationship for a while he still gets shy. Like if she was lounging in the tub and she senses him out the door about to peer in to ask her something, he realizes she's in the tub and practically bolts. Even if they've had sex he still respects her privacy. She giggles and calls out to him,
"I'd invite you in but I think you're too big Norman. We both couldn't fit!"
-Norman isn't very used to feeling like the big strong man, despite his size he doesn't really feel that way. He tends to be made to feel like a pole. But she adores his size and how much of him there is to hug and hold and that she doesn't have to worry about crushing him at all. At night her smaller frame is always spread across him clinging like a koala in cute pajamas sound asleep. She doesn't care if it's too hot or if he's a bit bony she thinks it's heaven and he loves falling asleep to the secure wonderful feeling of her weight nestled against him. Safe and sound he can feel like he's protecting her and offering his size as a comfort to her. Finally a positive for it.
-Meg would be considered not well mannered for a woman at the times because she speaks her mind and doesn't put up a fake air or facade of ladylike elegance. But to him that just makes her the most genuine person he'd ever met.
"I'll never be good enough either way I act cuz I'm a brown woman. So what should I care?"
He finds her very brave and aspires to be a little more like that.
-Norman hits his head a lot. Which has never been a problem before he's used to being tall. But when she's around he's much more distracted so it's pretty normal now for him to whack his head and immediately be pulled down by a concerned Meg who coos and cradles him making sure he doesn't have a bruise. He chuckles through it and gets embarrassed as he feels he should be the one comforting her, such a small young woman cradling a man his size is a sight. But she doesn't care and he can't complain when she kisses his head and rests his cheek on her chest.

Okay but what about reincarnation au? :'3
Meg and Norman can't be together for so many reasons but also because interracial dating at the time just wasn't easy. Then they get tragically split apart and she dies awfully. Memories of nights just holding each other and wishing things could be different. That the world could be different. That was all they had. Him getting locked away made certain they never saw each other again.
But then in present day a young woman with short hair and a perky glow looks up from her book in a library to a tall and puzzled looking man who's trying to find a book and offers him a kind smile.
"You need help?"
He spins around a bit caught off guard and fumbles with a book. He catches it and chuckles awkwardly which makes her smile.
"Hm? Oh uh hi."

i Quelli (1968)
Two years ago, among the successful bands, the Quelli suddenly entered: their first album ("La bambolina che fa no no no”, the Italian version of Michel Polnareff's hit) made them known and appreciated by all young Italian audiences. What struck most of their musical style was the truly astounding "grit". On the waves of that success they recorded “Per vivere insieme" and this record also went strong. Now, it can be said that the magic moment of this group has passed, but the five boys have not lost heart (they also participated this year in the "Disc for the summer" with “Mi sentivo strano”) and continue to play together waiting for some other lucky song to bring them back to the truly sensational successes of their first appearance.
Even those, like any other self-respecting group, have changed lineup several times: this is the last.
Pino Favaloro: rhythm guitar, 22 years old. He is the tallest of the ensemble (1.86 meters tall), Therefore they have nicknamed him “K2”. Being the eldest of the group, he is somewhat of a spiritual leader. He has always believed in the possibilities of the group.
Alberto Radius: lead guitar, 23 years old. They call him “Sudari”, which is none other than the anagram of Radius. He is a veteran in terms of groups: in fact he has already changed several, but finally it seems that he has perfectly blended with the Quelli.
Giorgio Piazza: bass guitar and singer, 21 years old. They nicknamed him “Fico” for his softness and laziness. He does not like work because he fears that, by struggling, the "fico" line, to which he is very attached, may be affected.
Franz De Ciccio: singer and drums, 21 years old. They call him “Pazzia [t/n: Madness]” for his strange conception of life and for the chain jokes he combines. He has a lot of fun telling that he owns a huge villa to rent out to friends. He is the founder of the group.
Flavio Premoli: organist, 21 years old. He was born in Varese. He is a bit of the “Calandrino” of the group as it is the sign of countless pranks for which Flavio laughs with his companions.
I need to stop getting Meg x Norman angst ideas before I've even seen the movie I'm charging my tablet rn
But imma brainstorm anyways
Meg met Norman when she went on the run from an extremely abusive partner. He found her and offered shelter to the bruised and exhausted young woman. He ended up staying by her side as she slept which never gave a chance for mother to slip in. He feels extreme pity to her and a strong want to protect her. They end up forming a deep genuine bond and quickly fall deeply in love.
She comes and goes trying to set up her things and life stuff so she can fully leave but she worries for her sisters safety. She eventually comes back badly beaten. Knowing their feelings and how he's also unhappy with his mothers she asks Norman to run away with her. He asks for time to think and she goes to get her sister.
Unfortunately she doesn't come back and the plot of the first film happens. When she finally does return after escaping her ex she tries to find Norman. Her ex had followed her and tells her he was going to kill her sister. Meg finally snaps and attacks him nearly killing him.
Norman finds what happened seeing her bloody and terrified and quickly finishes the job killing him. After the shock it's a rush to hide his body. They declare their love for each other and she says once her things are in order she'll come back so they can leave. When she leaves though the plot of the first film happens. He takes the fall for the murder of her ex and denies ever knowing her.
She tries to see him and plea a case for him but authorities and families of the victims never let her see him again. She never sees him again.
Coming onto the plot of Psycho 2 which I've only seen the trailer for
Meg never saw Norman again despite trying and eventually she gets killed in a completely random hit and run. Being a native woman isn't fun. He waits for her but knows after over 20 years she's probably off and had a family.
But a bitter family member of one of the victims finds out and tells him the awful truth. She's dead and he wasn't there to stop it. After that truth crushes him and his mother starts haunting him again the ghostly memories of Meg plague him with guilt.
"Oh Norman. You came back! You came back for me?"
"O-of course Meg's- I'm okay now I swear. We can be together now everything will be alright."
"Oh Norman... I'm so happy...I wish that was true."
"Norman I'm so scared. Don't leave me. Where are you? I thought you loved me??"
"Meg's?? Meg's please! Please come back!! Meg's where are you?? I'm sorry! Oh god I'm so sorry-"
"I love you Norman."
"Psicosis" - Alfred Hitchcock (1960) Siempre será mi film favorito de Hitchcock. Me alucina esa sensación de nerviosismo que me atenaza desde el primer plano (un edificio, sin más). En todo momento sabes que algo va mal, y que va a ir peor.
