Bryony Gordon was surprised to see who was dishing up chorizo sandwiches at her local street food market
To the nearby street food market – every town seems to have one now, serving paellas and exotic sausage rolls and strangely-sourced cheeses – where we popped for a bit of lunch on Saturday. The queue for the chorizo sandwiches seemed unusually long, even with their legendary local status, so naturally, I went to see what was going on. Were they handing out free manchego with every purchase, or olives, perhaps? That seemed thrilling to me - in south London, we are easily pleased. Imagine my surprise when I saw the cause of the fuss: the bloke who plays Jon Snow in Game of Thrones appeared to be doubling up as the chorizo flipper.

“Look,” I whispered to my husband. “There’s a celebrity cooking sausages!” He looked at me as if I were quite mad, and then looked at the celebrity cooking sausages, before nodding as if this were all completely normal. “Excuse me,” I said, when I got to the front of the queue, “but could I get a picture?” Jon Snow, who I later learnt is actually a man called Kit Harington, smiled sweetly and obliged. Apparently the bloke who runs the stand is a friend from college and he thought he’d help out during the busy lunch period, which seemed above and beyond the call of friendship duty to me. But then that’s celebrities for you. Clearly they’re not like the rest of us.
„Hey little girl. Are you ready? Uncle Tony and Aunt Pepper are waiting for you!“ Clint was smiling at his daughter and was holding her softly in his arms. The little girl with red hair opened her mouth and squeaked very happy. She shook her hands and wanted to grab Clints collar. The father laughed for a short moment, but then he was serious and worried. „Don´t be afraid. Mum and I must go to a mission, but it will be all okay. I take care of your mother. She will be fine, me too. And you will spend a great time with Tony and Pepper.“, he whispered very quiet.
Natasha came to her husband and their joint daughter. She petted the little girl´s hair and smiled sightly. „We must go. Fury doesn´t like to wait. You know him“, she aspirated with blame in her voice. „Sorry Tasha, but she doesn´t let me go!“, laughed Clint and saw at his daughter, who has clawed her hands in his top.
The Russian women twisted her eyes nerved, but she grinned big. „Excuse“, she coughed amused and fetched a tiny little bow, which was the favourite toy of her daughter. The little girl grabbed after this toy immediately and squeaked perfectly happy.
Clint smirked about his daughter and shaked his head. „Okay Nat, you have won!“ He laughed again, lowered his head, kissed his daughter of her hair and smiled. „We will back soon“, he whispered silently.
A/N: This is a request for the equally awkward couple trying to consummate their marriage, and having issues. - Fuckeree
Warnings: Uhh, they trying to get it on.
Marriage was something that you had dreamed of when you were little, but now, as you look down at the ring on your finger, it weighs on you that it’s not a dream anymore, it’s reality.
His fingers are gentle as he runs them across your cheek, and down onto your lips. “You’re beautiful” he whispers, pulling himself over top of you and ducking his head down, to press his lips softly to yours.
“You’re my husband” you whisper, your voice soft with the realization that life has become real, that love has become real, that you and he are real.
“I sure hope so” he teases, his hair dangling down and tickling your cheeks as it brushes on your face. You reach up and push it back, holding it there as he’s careful not to put his weight on you, and kisses you once more.
His hands are shaky, but careful, as he runs his right hand down the length of your side, and stops on your hip. He’s firm, but not painful, and he gnaws on your lower lip.
You grin, giving back the enthusiasm that he gives you, flipping him over and pressing yourself up against him. He chuckles as you brush back your hair and sit across his lap.
His fingertips pressed against your thighs, you know where this is going, and you like it.
Licking your lower lip, you lean back down and pepper kisses up his neck, stopping occasionally to leave marks, and across his jaw until your lips are crushed together again.
His hands can’t sit still, they’re all over your upper body, and you reach down to start unbuttoning his shirt.
“Are you okay with this?” he murmurs between kisses, and you nod your head furiously. “Of course, we’ve waited this long” it’s been that way since the beginning, nothing happened unless he was sure that you were okay.
He reaches around your back, and you can feel heat starting in your chest. You finish undoing his shirt, and go to start on his belt, when you realize he’s still fighting with your bra.
“You uh, you got it?” his face flushes more than it already is, and he shakes his head, biting his lip.
“Uh nope, no I don’t” you stop, and stare down at him, as he throws his hands up. “I’ll get it” you can’t help but laugh, and he cracks up too, watching as you reach around your back and pull it free.
As he lifts your shirt up over your head, careful to grab your bra while he’s at it, you hear a thud, and then a crash, before you’re splattered with something.
“Spence.. What happened?” you pull your head free, and as you sit there topless, he shakes his head. “I sorta knocked over the bottle of wine” his pale skin is tinted red as the liquid pours over the both of you, and you can feel it drip from you onto his hips.
“That’s gonna be sticky” you mumble, leaning down and kissing it from his chest as you’re skin to skin with the drenched body underneath you.
It’s in his hair, and all over the two of you, and you don’t want to leave it to stain your skin and make you uncomfortable, so you pull your leg back over him and step off of the bed, trying not to slip on what’s ended up on the floor.
“We can’t just quit what we started, let’s go have a shower” you take him by the hand, and he pulls you to him as he stands, tossing a towel down over your mess, and following you to the bathroom.
He keeps his hands on your hips as you start the water, and wait for it to warm up.
You can’t imagine how the two of you ever ended up being so comfortable, when the first time was met with laughter, a bruise or two, and your hair being so knotted that it took weeks to brush out.
As you finish undressing, he steps in, letting the water run over his face, and down onto his chest. The water runs slightly pink, and he holds out his hand, helping you in and pulling you against him.
You put your head back and suck in a breath as he kisses your neck and chest, his hands in your hair.
“That feels incredible” you say quietly, leaning your head against his shoulder, and he runs his fingers along your back.
He’s gentle, and always so careful, and you lean back, taking in the high as the warmth of the water mixes with his fingers, and everything starts to run together.
“Can.. Can I?” he asks permission once more, and you nod again.
He starts to kneel down, but the one thing that would happen to you and he, and only you and he, happens.
As he falls, you can’t help but cover your mouth to try and stop from laughing. “Jesus Spence, we just can’t do this even if we try”. He shakes his head, rolling his eyes as he stares up at you from the bottom of the shower.
“Well we could keep trying, but I’m really not sure how it would end up” he flips his hair back out of his face, and you grin.
So many films out there at the moment are filled with doom and gloom about our futures. Infact before Tomorrowland we were treated to a trailver for San Andreas. As the trailer played I turned to my husband and whispered “Nothing like going to see a movie that tells you we’re all going to die.” At first Tomorrowland might feel the same, however there is one major theme throughout the film. Hope, there is hope that the future can be changed, hope that the world can be saved from the devestation we as the human race are expecting to come get us. I can’t remember the last time I came out of a film so inspired, filled with an infectious hope that there is still a lot of potential in our world.
But I digress, what did I think of the actual movie? In short I LOVED it. I had fears going in that the film would have too much action, that there wouldn’t be enough story to follow it all through. However I was wrong, the trailers were quite misleading in that fact. The thing that pulls the story together is the mystery of Tomorrowland. I agree when it says the less you know the better. As you follow Casey through the movie you can’t help but be drawn into the confusion and mystery that she is going through. Why is this happening? Why does the pin show her this amazing city? Why her? I was not disappointed by this film at all, it drew me in and left me filled with and infectious hope.
For the Hardcore Disney fans there are plenty of little tit bits to enjoy. At the start there is a massive nod to Walt Disney at the World fair, lots of Disney references in the collectors store, and of course Tomorrowland itself. However I went into the film wondering how they would reach out to Disneyland Paris fans and whether there would be something there for us. Instead of Tomorrowland, Disneyland Paris has Discoveryland which is based around Jules Verne and the age of Steam Punk Discovery. Needless to say I was not disappointed. There is a rather huge nod to Discoveryland, and many fans of the DLP Space Mountain will find a fitting reference to the original “La Lune de la Terre” ride.
Onto casting, I really think this film was perfectly cast. The leads were engaging and played their parts well. However I have to say I think the star of this film is Raffey Cassidy who plays Athena. I was in awe of her for the entire film. Her character was perfectly played and wasn’t the easiest of roles to pull off. However she did it perfectly and for me, she totally out shined the big names in the movie!
So is this movie for everyone? Although I loved every second of the film and would happily watch it again I can say that some people will not feel the same way. I went to see the film with my husband, and though he enjoyed it I could see that for him some parts of the film just dragged on a little too long. A massive part of the movie is the actual getting to Tomorrowland, very little time is actually spent there. Also People expecting in your face Disney references the whole way through will also be disappointed. Whilst they are definately there, they are very subtle (except from at the start) and they have taken precautions to not detract from the story by shoving obvious references in our faces through out the film. This might disapoint some, but for me it was perfect and worked.
So my final thoughts, I loved the film and it’s very strong messages. There is hope, the future can be changed if we believe in ourselves. It is a great movie that leaves you filled with infectious hope and awe. I would say it is must see for every Disney fan, and even for those that aren’t!
“I’ll wait for you,” Levy whispered, holding her husband in a tight hug. Deployment day just came so fast, she wasn’t ready to let him go.
“I’ll be back soon,” he mumbled into her hair, “If our baby is born while I’m gone please give him a hug for me.”
“I will Gajeel.”
They let go of each other, “Natsu keep an eye on Levy for me will ya?”
“Of course I will…Keep yourself safe Gajeel.”
He nodded his head, turning away from his friends walking towards his plane, not daring to look back, he could hear Levy sobbing he wanted to remember her smiling face while he was gone, not the look of pain he was causing her.
As the pages of my life go by
“I’ll wait for you,” Levy whispered to the Moon, hoping somehow Gajeel could hear her overseas.
She rocked back and forth on her rocking chair, hands resting on her rather large stomach.
“Levy-chan are you alright,” Lucy asked from the doorway.
“Yea, just thinking.”
Lucy gave her a sad smile, “Anything I can do?”
She shook her head, “Not unless you know the cure to a sad heart.”
“Chocolate always helps,” Lucy suggested.
“Mmm sounds good.”
She watched Lucy walk away, knowing she knew when she lied to her.
“Come home soon Gajeel…I miss you.”
I’m so desperate just to see your face
Meet me in this broken place
“Here’s your little boy ma’am,” a nurse said sweetly, handing the newborn over to her.
She held the baby, gently caressing his small face lovingly.
“Hi little guy,” she whispered softly, “Your father wants to name you Deadpool or Batman but you look like a Nash to me.”
Hold me now
I need to feel you
Show me how
To make it new again
There’s no one I can run to
And nothing I could ever do
When Gajeel came back home, he and Levy held each other for what seemed like hours.
“Lucy, Nash is getting heavy when-”
“Shut up Natsu,” quickly shouted, jabbing him in the side.
“Nash?” Gajeel questioned.
“Yep meet your son Nash,” Natsu grinned holding the 4 month old out to him.
Gajeel smiled, taking a hold of the child, “I’m really a dad.”
Grinning up at him, ‘We’re really a family now….Please don’t ever go back…”
“I don’t know if I have a choice..But I’ll do my best.”
“I’m nowhere if I’m here without you,” she whispered.
~~Happy Birthday James Spencer aka Lancelot 1.0 ~~
Our precious little Snowflake. Of course Percival is going to throw a giant Party for him. There will be lots of cake (and alcohol of course ). First, they getting really drunk, which ends in a wild make out session on the sofa, and then James receives his special present ( •¢• )
At the end of the day, both of them end up dancing in their living room, a really cheesy song is playing in the background and Percival will kiss his beloved Husband, whispering “Happy Birthday, James.” Into saids ear. (×-×)
“Oh….” She cooed softly, seeing her husband upon the chaise lounge with their newborn asleep in his arms. After his birth, Madame Chauvelin had just recently gained back her strength enough to look for her little family. Walking with gentle steps, she wrapped her shawl around herself before sitting at his side, resting her head on his shoulder as she smiled down at their son.
“We still need to name him..” Marguerite whispered softly against her husbands coat.
“Kids, huh?” Meadow glanced over, his face falling when he noticed the expressions of both Lionhearts.
Crystal leaned over to her husband, whispering something in his ear with a look of concern, and his frown deepened. He muttered something back to her, and then reached into his pocket, pulling out a phone that definitely hadn’t been ringing. “Hello?” He held it to his ear, “Ah… yes, of course. We’ll be right there. Sorry for the trouble.”
I just wanted to submit a link. There is a youtuber by the name of Alexander Stream. He has a video talking about intergenerational relationships and in some videos (like the whisper challenge video or blind taste test) he has his older husband included as well.
