Sanvers in College: Alex Drunk Dials the Cute Girl from Bio Class

Based on this post: https://hazingblur.tumblr.com/post/160026282401/queercapwriting-wlwprompts-person-a-is-drunk @hazingblur

Original prompt from @wlwprompts : “Person A is drunk and decides to randomly call that cute girl from biology class to tell her she’s pretty”

@lesbapocalypse you also asked for this so like.


She’s drunk and she’s stolen Kara’s phone, because it’s finals week and all bets are off and that cute girl from biology class?

She’s 1000% sure that her name is Maggie – Maggie Sawyer – not that she paid attention.

Pfft.

No. Of course she didn’t.

And she’s 1000% sure that said Maggie Sawyer is the same Maggie that her little sister has befriended.

And therefore, that cute girl’s number – and when she says cute, she means it, but god, she also means blazingly sexy – must be in Kara’s phone.

So she swipes the phone from her sister’s bag while Kara laughs with James and Winn. Swipes it and chugs another gulp of illegal punch and she finds Maggie’s name – complete with a picture, god, a gorgeous picture, because damn, those dimples, that hair, those downcast eyes – in Kara’s contacts.

Finds the name, and tries once, twice, three times, to successfully hit the big green button that makes the phone dial.

She giggles and almost bounces on the balls of her feet as the phone rings, rings, rings.

“Hey Kara!”

Alex freezes at the sound of her voice – her voice that she’s used to hearing only asking the best questions, only giving the best answers, in bio lecture, in bio lab – and she contemplates hanging up and leaving it to her sister to explain the butt dial.

“Kara?”

But now Maggie sounds concerned, because she must hear the party in the background, and Alex has seen her smile, seen her nerdiness, but she’s also seen her motorcycle, her leather jacket, her gym bag. And she doesn’t want her to be concerned, to feel like she has to speed to the party to rescue Kara from whatever situation she might be in.

“Hey! No, nope, not Kara. I mean, of course you thought it was Kara, I took her phone, I mean, obviously you thought it was her – ”

“Danvers?”

“Not the blonde one!”

“Alex.”

“Hiiiii.”

There’s a pause and she thinks she hears Maggie shuffling something.

“Danvers, you drunk? Are you with people, drinking water?”

“Awww, Sawyer, you care about me!”

“Well I sure don’t want you passing out in your own vomit, Danvers. I’ve been there, it’s not pleasant.”

Her voice is pleasant, though, and Alex collapses drunkenly onto a half-occupied couch, completely oblivious to the couple that had been making out, who shoot her irritated looks as they get up to find a better spot to kiss.

Alex thinks she hears that shuffling again, and maybe some wind, but she’s drunk and everything is oh so slightly hazy, but pleasantly so – pleasant, because Maggie Sawyer is on the phone with her, Maggie Sawyer cares whether she throws up or not. Maggie Sawyer. God. How can anyone be that perfect?

“I’m finnneee. I just… it’s just, I know you’re Kara’s friend, but we’ve never really talked, and I… even if you weren’t Kara’s friend, I’d have noticed you, you know. I mean, how could I not notice you? Do you know we’re in the same bio class? You’re always so smartest. The smartest girl in the class. The smartest and the cutest. And my sister’s friend! What are the odds, huh? Maybe we can calculate it with genome mapping or something. But we’re more than our code, right, we have to be. You believe that, right, Maggie?”

“Hey, Danvers, I’m not cutting you off, but can you do me a favor?”

Alex preens. Her last name sounds so nice on Maggie’s tongue. She wonders what else would feel nice on Maggie’s tongue. Everything, probably.

She nods before she realizes vaguely that Maggie can’t see her.

“Mmhmm.”

“Remind me which house is throwing the party you all are at.”

Alex squints as she tries to remember. “The one across from the science building. Where we take bio. Together. But now term is ending and maybe we won’t do anything together again. Not even that we did anything in bio together, because I was too nervous to – ”

“Danvers, whoa whoa. Can you do me another favor, sweetie?”

Alex’s heart backflips and she almost careens off the couch, because she called her sweetie, she called her sweetie, she called her sweetie.

The sound of wind on the other line increases in her ear, but maybe that’s just a side effect from how hard she’s pressing the phone to her ear, like the closer she clutches it, the closer she’ll be to Maggie.

“Yeah.” She thinks her voice might be higher, might be breathier, than it normally is, but that’s alright, because Maggie Sawyer called her sweetie.

“I know you have things you feel like you want to tell me right now, and I want to hear them, but only if you still want to tell me when you’re sober, okay?”

Alex blinks and furrows her brow at the phone, because – maybe she’s more drunk than she thought – Maggie’s voice seems to be coming from two places, now. One, through the phone, and one, less static-y, closer to her body.

She looks up from the couch and she startles, because Maggie is standing over her, crouching down next to her as she hangs up her phone, all basketball shorts and hoodie and flip flops and hair hastily tied back into a messy ponytail.

She’s grinning softly, but she’s breathing kind of heavily, like she’d just sprinted from her dorm room. Because, Alex realizes dimly, that’s exactly what she just did.

“Hey Alex,” she says as Alex splutters, as Alex fumbles to sit up straight, to fix her hair, to hang up Kara’s phone without dropping it.

Alex thinks she may be imagining it, but Maggie’s voice is softer, now, more breakable, now, more vulnerable, now, than it had been when they’d been on the phone. When Maggie had been on a search-and-give-water-to-the-drunk-girl mission.

But now that she’s arrived, water bottle she must have grabbed on the way out of her dorm in hand, her voice is shy, and her eyes are shy, and her eyes are something that look a little scared.

“Hi Maggie,” Alex whispers, and then giggles because she’s not sure why she’s whispering.

Maggie grins, and it’s the sweetest sight Alex has ever seen. She made Maggie Sawyer smile.

“Why did you come all the way here? You didn’t have to come all the way here, I – ”

“Well, clearly your sister doesn’t know what you’re up to or how drunk you are, because if she did I would have heard her in the background telling you to think before you dial and all that stuff.”

Alex covers her face with hands made clumsy by alcohol.

“Ugh, I’m sorry, you’re right, I shouldn’t have – I ruined your night, I embarrassed myself, I’m sorry, Maggie, I – ”

“Hey, hey, no, that’s not what I meant.” Maggie gets up from her crouch to sit on the couch next to Alex, and she opens the water bottle for her and presses it gently into her hands.

“Drink. Please?”

“I’m not that drunk.”

Maggie just nods, and Alex does as she’s told.

She finishes the entire bottle in one chug, and Maggie just watches her with cautious but glistening eyes.

“Okay, come on. Kara!” she calls across the room, and Kara seems to materialize next to them instantly.

“Maggie! I thought you weren’t in the mood to party toni – Alex? Are you okay? What – ”

“Here. Your phone.”

“How did you – ”

“Tell you in the morning. Right now, I’m gonna take your sister back to my room – no funny business, I promise – and help her sober up a little. Okay?”

Kara glances between Maggie’s disheveled appearance and Alex’s drunken one, and she kisses Alex’s cheek.

“Don’t give her a hard time, okay, Alex?” she teases, and Alex giggles as she stands unsteadily, both Kara and Maggie stabilizing her.

“When do I give anyone a hard time?”

Kara just kisses her again, just thanks Maggie, doesn’t object to their arrangement, because she trusts Maggie not to take advantage of her sister, and she knows that her sister would like nothing more than to get to know Maggie better. She just wishes she’d have had the courage to reach out sober. But they’ll work on that. The three of them.

Alex leans on Maggie, who’s wrapped her arm around Alex’s waist, and revels in the contact.

As they walk, she rambles about the chemical structure of alcohol. About its impacts on the brain. Maggie listens and Maggie smiles and Maggie nods in all the right places, and Maggie lets her talk, lets her talk, because she’s focused on making sure she doesn’t let the taller girl stumble and fall.

When Maggie shoves her dorm door open, Alex freezes.

“You know I’ve wanted this since like, the first time I saw you. For you to take me back to your room. To…” Her eyes flit down to Maggie’s lips.

“To kiss you.”

Maggie gulps and slips away from her, taking care to keep her hands on Alex’s arms to help her stabilize.

“Go pee.”

“What?”

“You’re this drunk? You for sure need to pee. Bathroom’s right there. Can you make it on your own?”

Alex nods with tears in her eyes, and Maggie hates herself a little bit, but she’d hate herself a lot more if she let this conversation continue.

The bathroom door shuts and the water flushes and the sink runs for a long, long, long moment.

When Alex stumbles out, it’s with confusion and the shadows of hurt in her eyes.

“Did I do something wrong? I don’t have to stay here, you didn’t have to – I just thought – you ran to… to rescue me, and you gave me water, and you took me home, and I thought that meant you like me as much as I like you, and I –

"Alex. Alex, Alex, look… We can talk about all this when you’re sober. If you still want to talk about it. I promise. But right now? Right now, we can talk biology. Or astrophysics, or about the dessication and revival of tardigrades, whatever you want. Just not us. Not now. And certainly no kissing. Okay?”

Alex slumps down onto Maggie’s bed without asking, and Maggie just grins and kneels to help take Alex’s boots off.

“Why not?”

“Because you’re drunk, Danvers,” Maggie giggles like it’s the most obvious thing in the world.

“It’s never mattered to any guy,” Alex almost whispers, and Maggie stiffens, and her nostrils flare, and her eyes are more serious, more full of rage, than Alex has ever seen them.

“Well, it matters to me. Okay? Come on.”

She helps Alex swing her legs up onto the bed, holds her up to take in one more glass of water, hastily poured, and she kicks off her flip flops and grabs a pillow from the other side of her bed.

“You’re not gonna come to bed?”

“The floor’s perfectly fine for me, Danvers.”

“But – ”

“When you’re sober. If you still want to. I promise, Alex. Okay?”

“You promise?”

“Yeah, Danvers. Yeah. I promise.”

But Alex is asleep, a small smile on her face, before Maggie even finishes her promise. Her promise to her best friend’s big sister, who she’s been trying to gather the courage to ask out for months now.

She snuggles down onto the floor and – eventually – falls asleep with a smile on her own face, too.

There’s straight couples and then there’s Straight Couples™. and like straight couples are chill w/e I don’t care do ya thing 

But then there’s Straight Couples and they’re like attached at the hip and have like 1000 pet names that are all embarrassing and gross and they’re so far up each others asses they’re oblivious to everything like

Straight Couples are fuckin gross i never wanna see another straight couple again

merrycanaries  asked:

I haven't seen s:hc yet because I can't afford it but your trans Peter headcanons give me life!

thank you!! I hope you get the chance to see the movie soon but here have some more headcanons in the meantime:

- peter chose his own name, making the significance of him choosing benjamin as his middle name 1000% more significant. he chose to name himself after ben - and he learned what a man should be from his uncle

peter: is it okay with you if I have ben as my middle name? it’s okay if it’s not, I just- you’re the type of man I want to be, uncle ben.

ben: *choked up* t-that’d be fine, son

- peter’s two biggest models for masculinity when he was realizing he was trans is ben and ned, so like, toxic masculinity whom? peter is so comfortable in his masculinity, because ben told him that being a man wasn’t anything biological, it was who you chose to be and always doing the right thing. and ned is just an endless source of comfort & support, “hey ned is cuddling masculine?” “hell yeah it is, come over here buddy”

- so like, ned used to borrow peter clothes when he was first transitioning, because ned’s clothes were loose and baggy on peter and even now ned keeps a spare t shirt in his locker for if peter feels dysphoric at school. it happens less and less now, but peter always feels such a sense of comfort wearing ned’s clothes, and probably sleeps in one of ned’s old shirts as pajamas.

- aunt may re-stitched name tags into all of peter’s clothes with his new name after he told her that he was a boy, and they all say ‘peter parker’ and he loves it

- MJ only ever knew peter as peter, because she moved to the area after his transition, so he’s actually really nervous to tell her that he’s trans because he likes her, he like-likes her, and he works himself into a nervous caffeine-felled jitter trying to tell her and ask her out -

to which MJ laughs and replies, “Oh, you’re telling me that you’re trans? I thought you were finally going to tell me that you’re spider-man. Come on, peter, did you really think I’d care?”

“You don’t?”

“You’re Peter Parker. That’s who you are to me. my friend, and the only hero that matters around here, and the guy who’s gonna pick me up on friday night at 8:30, okay?”

“y-yeah.”

“When I am with him, smoking or talking quietly ahead, or whatever it maybe, I see, beyond my own happiness the intimacy, occasional glimpses of the happiness of 1000s of others whose names I shall never hear, and know that there is a great unrecorded history.”

- E.M. Forster (1879-1970) about his Egyptian lover, Mohammed el-Adl. 

What dating Jooheon would be like
  • im so soft for this man i swear
  • like he’s not even my bias but still
  • ok leggo


  • this boy has the biggest noona kink ever to exist in this universe
  • like he would call you noona 24/8  - more often than your name actually (even if you weren’t older than him; it doesn’t matter)


  • also holy fuck he loves cold fingers
  • like not necessarily cold hands?
  • but just the thought of your grazing your cold fingers over his thighs gets him harder than my exams
  • ok do not even get me started on those thighsss (he knows u love ok. das why hes such a fuckin tease about them)
  • and because he knows you probably could get off just by staring at those meaty gifts from heaven, he likes to pretty much base your sex life on them
  • he asks for you to sit on his lap all day every day
  • thigh riding
  • sitting blowjobs (so u can grab on and better see those legs (⌐□_□) )
  • you got it all
  • the cutest thing is that he even likes to include them in aftercare?
  • like he loves to hugs your legs with his own
  • also
  • pet names are 1000% his thang (i know yall thinkin abt daddy and oppa n wtv nasties)
  • but for you, he loves like disgustingly sweet nicknames lol


  • he loves to smile during sex?? 
  • like you just fucking and he just realises “holy shit Y/N is the cutest lil thing i am so lucky wow how tf did this happen did i won the partner lottery or smth”
  • then you can see his gorgeous dimples
  • oh god his dimples are life
  • but believe me
  • his face isn’t the only place where he has dimples
  • jooheon isn’t a fan of his back dimples (but ofc you love them BC THEYRE SO CAYOOT)
  • also
  • imagine him just coming out of the shower with his back still wet
  • and little droplets of water getting stuck on his back dimples ayayaya


  • his favorite part of you is probably your waist or your cheeks
  • he would pinch your cheeks ever so lightly before kissing you omg
  • while walking downtown or something, his fav form of PDA would definetely be more verbal than physical?
  • like he would just adore to whisper something really dirty and watch your face turn bright red just before he looks into your eyes and give you that signature dimpled smile
  • what a lil shit
  • Is Lee Jooheon a sub or dom?”
  • I ask myself that quite a lot - and althought im  a complete softie for sub Joohonie, I really feel like he would like to switch between one and the other
  • like he would have his sub days and dom days, I feel.

Overall, I feel like he would be pretty flirty and playfull on the outside -  he would love to let others know that you’re his, and his only - he would often show it in more intimate moments. But he would also show his more caring and softer side, especially in the aftercare and such.

A Writing Help Masterpost Made From Other Masterposts

So, in celebration of reaching 100 followers (actually by the time I posted this, I had 123) I decided to make what I can only call a “Roundup of Writing”. Anyway, hope you all enjoy!

Completely Objective Ranking of Planets And Other Such Significant Objects in the SOLAR SYSTEM

1) THE SUN: Puts the Solar in Solar System. Appreciate ur mother and protector. All of this shit? Nothing without Sol. It’s called the solar system for a reason baby. Will one day expand and destroy the very life on Earth it helped create. Very Poetic.

2) JUPITER: The Biggest Boy. Has a permanent earth sized storm (The Great Red Spot) that’s visible from space, 63 moons and Massive Gravitational Pull. 63 Moons!!! Four of those moons are the Gallilean Moons, the largest non planet objects in the solar system. Includes Io, which has a collapsing atmosphere and Europa, the number one contender for harbouring extraterrestrial life.

3) SATURN: Really Good Rings. Density low enough that in a theoretcial scenario where you have enough water to fill a solar system, it would float. Has amazing planetary rings and 62 moons. Moons of note include Titan, which has lakes of methane, and Enceladus, which just fuckin blasts jets of ice into space every now and then and is #2 contender for extraterrestrial life. 

4) MARS: Rusty Boy. Absolutely covered in Iron Oxide (III) aka Rust. Second Wettest Planet. Contains the biggest mountain in the Solar System and is entirely populated by robots. Just all round extremely cool. #1 destination for extraterrestrial expansion. Lets all move there. 

5)  VENUS: Murder Death Planet. It’s clouds are made of sulphuric acid, which means it rains literal face melting acid daily! It also has no magnetic field so is regularly bombarded by lethal doses of radiation. As well as this whole surface is actively volcanic and is often reshaped by lava flows. Everything about this planet wants you to die horribly. As the closest and most visible planet from Earth, the greenhouse gas laden atmosphere and utterly barren lifeless surface serve as a nice reminder of the way our own dear blue planet is heading.

6)  EARTH: Home of Honduran White Bats and Sea Turtles. Contains all other known life too so that’s cool i guess. #1 Wettest Planet. Orbited by 1 Moon and like 1000 tonnes of junk. Named after dirt.

7) NEPTUNE: Icy Boy. Furthest planet from the Sun (what about pluto? - fuck pluto). 14 moons. Also has a planet sized permanent storm but this one is Edgier: The Great Dark Spot. The other storms on Neptune can also reach nearly supersonic speeds. Weirdly it’s atmosphere contains cyanide.

8) MERCURY: The Icarus of Planets. The sun only sets there once every 176 earth days. Gravity too weak to keep an atmosphere. Any atmosphere it does have gets literally ripped apart by solar winds direct from the sun which also blasts everything on its surface with ionic radiation.

9) URANUS: St Georges Planet if u wanna be posh. This wild bitch spins sideways and no one knows why. Nice rings, 27 moons. Name lends itself to puns.

10) THE OORT CLOUD: Oort is really fun to say. A weird collection of space dust, asteroids comets and dwarf planetoids. Sometimes spits out new comets which is always nice to see.

11) THE ASTEROID BELT: Space Rocks. Yeah think the Oort cloud but smaller and objectively worse. Just rocks sitting between mars and jupiter. Occasionally flings extinction level asteroids into the inner planets. Kind of a dick move really.

12) PLUTO: Dwarf Planetoid. Can’t clear it’s own area, tidally locked with it’s shitty moon, cold, dark, shitty weird orbit. Redeeming features: named by an 11 year old girl and has a crater that looks a bit like a heart. Just disappointing all round really.

im just gonna start making up shit about millennials and write articles because you know that all those baby boomers out there are gonna read them just so they can complain about it and ill make a fortune in ad revenue. “millennials dont lick envelopes anymore and here’s why” or “73% of millennials press the crosswalk button multiple times” and after 1000 comments from men named Harold i’ll be rolling in cash

1000 FOLLOWERS CELEBRATION POST!

Originally posted by asdarknessfell

A while ago, @thecrownedrose and I discovered that we had been chasing each other in follower numbers for a while, so we decided that if we hit 1000 followers within a week of each other, we would join together to do a big celebration. We did it, and so, quite a lot later, this is that celebration! 

HERE’S WHAT WE’RE DOING: 

While I was posting Cherchez la Femme, I discovered that my wifey was really, really good at making moodboards, unlike myself. She’s the one that made the moodboard for each post of CLF. So we decided to combine drabbles and moodboards. She does the moodboards and writes the majority of the fluff, and I write all of the angst and smut, and all the Winterboneless fluff, more on that later. 

THIS WILL BE GOING ON FOR TWO WEEKS. Saturday, September 2–Saturday, September 16.

Sound good so far?

HERE ARE THE RULES: 

1. If you request a drabble OR a moodboard, you may have up to three (3).

2. If you request a drabble AND a moodboard, you may have up to two (2)

3. Lucy and I will be in communication for the whole celebration, so you can request it on either blog and we’ll share with each other.

4. PLEASE stick to the limit. Lucy teaches small humans for a living and I am currently working part time and trying to find a better job, so we’re busy. That’s why this is going on for two weeks instead of just one. That, and 99% of the time, I have absolutely terrible wifi. 

5. NO MINORS IF YOU WANT SMUT. DO NOT GO ON ANON AND REQUEST SMUT IF YOU ARE A MINOR. IT IS ILLEGAL AND WE WILL NOT DO IT. 

6. Everything will be posted (or reblogged) on both blogs. I will be tagging each drabble/moodboard as “1000″ and with the name of the character most prominently featured. So if you request a moodboard and a drabble with Winterboneless, the tag will read “1000 Winterboneless”.

7. WE WILL NOT REPEAT REQUESTS.

7. DO NOT REPOST THE DRABBLES OR THE MOODBOARDS. PLEASE CREDIT US, ESPECIALLY IF YOU USE THEM IN A LARGER FIC. It’s fine if you do, just say “made by” or “inspired by” and tag us. No big deal–we’ll love it.

CHARACTERS WE CAN DO:

1. Bucky Barnes (MCU)

2. Chase Collins (The Covenant)

3. Carter Baizen (Gossip Girl)

4. Lance Tucker (The Bronze)

5. Chris Beck (The Martian)

6. All of the Avengers (MCU)–THIS INCLUDES T’CHALLA AND SAM

7. Guardians of the Galaxy (MCU)

8. Ivar (Vikings)

*If you see a character that’s not on this list, run it by either of us and we’ll see what we can do.

A NOTE ON WINTERBONELESS:

We are aware that we are going to be getting A LOT of requests for Winterboneless because it seems to be Tumblr’s new pet pairing. We are begging you, PLEASE try to remember that this is not the only pairing we can do. Winterboneless is basically the reason rule 7 exists (there are so many people that like it, there are definitely going to be a few repeats, and we will not do the same request twice!). PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, give us variety. We have lots of characters to play with here.

We love every single one of you and we’re both hoping to give back! OUR FOLLOWERS ARE AWESOME! 

Are they a cat or dog person?

Just my own little headcanon about the boys~

Akira:

  • Doesn’t really have a preference honestly 
  • Enjoys dogs for their energy and loyalty 
  • Likes cats for their independence and (usually) quiet nature 
  • When he finally gets his own place he’d prolly get a cat 
  • He’d be a busy man and would want a pet that would be okay with being alone for a bit
  • When he isn’t busy though he spoils the cat like it’s his baby 
  • Doesn’t let anyone know that the cat has him wrapped around its paw
  • Later on in life he would definitely get a dog when he is able to give them the proper amount of attention they need 
  • Probably a bully breed ‘cause he knows all too well how it feels to be judged unfairly 
  • Pupper would also be a rescue dog 
  • Because Akira is an A+ guy and is too good for this world
  • Him and S/O would go for evening walks with the pupper
  • Wearing matching outfits including one for the dog while they powerwalk around the neighborhood

Ryuji:

  • Dogs all the way (before the Phantom Thieves) 
  • And not little yippy dogs 
  • Huskies, German Shepards, Great Danes, Mastiffs… 
  • Manly dogs because Ryuji is manly and tough
  • Also likes Greyhounds 
  • Would want to get a dog that could be his running partner once Akira moves away 
  • The dog would most likely 1000% be named Doggo or something just as silly 
  • After the Phantom Thieves, he finds himself tolerating cats a lot more than he used to 
  • Thinks Maine coons and hairless cats are pretty cool 
  • Would only have a cat in his future home if his S/O asked for one 
  • Because how could he possibly say no to them?
  • He’d pretend like it’s a huge annoyance
  • But is secretly excited that S/O would be happy about the addition to their little family
  • He’d start looking for a kitten for them ASAP

Yusuke:

  • More of a cat person than a dog person
  • They’re graceful, intelligent, mysterious, elegant…
  • “No wonder the Egyptians worshiped these creatures.”
  • Has a soft spot for strays
  • Left out bowls of food at night for the neighborhood cats when he lived with Madarame
  • May have kept a stray or two hidden in his room during the harsh winters
  • Named his first cat Da Vinci since it couldn’t be his code name for the Phantom Thieves
  • Lets the cat sleep in his bed and on his pillow because they just look so comfortable in that spot and he doesn’t want to disturb them
  • Would be the person to sit in the same spot for an hour because a cat fell asleep on his lap 
  • He would introduce S/O to his cat right away to make sure they loved them just as much as he did
  • Has a few sketches of S/O holding the cat because they’re the most beautiful things in his life
  • Would be slightly reluctant to bring another cat in the house
  • Da Vinci is the king of the house and Yusuke wouldn’t want him to feel threatened
  • Relents after much pleading from S/O on the condition that the new cat be named Mona Lisa
