53rd-Street

56th Street - Peter Parker

request -  Hey, could you do a story where the reader (who doesn’t really know Peter but maybe they go to the same school?) finds one of Peter’s backpacks that he left behind and tries to find him to give it back to him? And maybe that happens more than one time and reader tries to solve this backpack mystery? Hope you can work with this messy idea, your blog’s name somehow gave me the idea.

a/n - this idea made me so happy!!!! (for obvious reasons LMAO) i tried to show his more dorky side in this fic and i’m sorry if it failed, but don’t forget to request a peter parker/spider-man fic if you’d like and follow!

I was walking down 53rd street, headphones in and heading home straight from work. I decided to take the short way home through a small alleyway, but was stopped when I almost tripped over something.

What the hell-” I thought to myself, looking down to see a small backpack. It seemed as if it was left here since the sun was going down and everyone was starting to head home for the day. My eyes then caught onto the zipper was broken from the side down.

Parker.” I huffed in my mind, recognizing the faulty zipper. This had marked the third time that I’ve found his backpack within the last month. Peter and I had never spoken to one another outside of Chemistry, and I never understood why he would be rushing out of school so quickly. Every time I found his backpack it would also be in the same place too, which I found odd.

I zipped his backpack up and looked at the tag on one of its straps.

20 Ingram Street.” I typed into my phone, slinging the backpack around my shoulder and following the directions that radiated off of the screen, luckily not being longer than a 10 minute walk.

You like Steve Rogers because he’s sweet and kind and doesn’t look at you like a piece of meat. Steve likes you because you treat him like anyone else, make him feel confident, and look at him like he’s just as tall as all the other guys.

The Ring part 2

PART ONE is here.


The sight that greeted Kara as soon as she stepped foot inside the Grant penthouse was almost scary enough to cause her to turn around and walk right back out, consequences be damned.

Cat was in full intimidation mode. She stood completely rigid in the foyer with her arms crossed and foot tapping against the floor. Her posture of doom was enhanced by narrowed eyes and thinly pressed lips. And her quirked brow? Well, that was the cherry on top.

All in all, the effect was quite terrifying, but Kara forced her leaden feet to move forward until she was just inches from Cat. Leaning forward, she pressed a soft kiss to her lips and relaxed when she felt Cat soften just a bit.

“Hey,” she said as she pulled back. She was determined to act like nothing was wrong. Fake it ‘til you make it, as they say. Or, in Kara’s case, fake it until you find the ring, so she smiled at Cat like all was right with the world.

“Would you care to tell me what happened?”

1970 Citroën DS 21 

Speaking of design triumphs, the iconic DS is nothing if not one of the best designs in automotive history. This handsome example was parked conspicuously outside the Baccarat Hotel on West 53rd Street. It sports two-tone paint, gold badges and a whimsical “Louis XV” vanity tag, and was not among those Dee Esses that gathered for the French car rally we covered back in 2011.
