“Some instinct made her lift her hand and cup his cheek with her fingers. The room was too dark for her to see him, but she could feel the stickiness of the blood, and a wetness that was not blood. ‘Little bird,’ he said once more, his voice raw and harsh as steel on stone.”
Here are 3 of my favorite WestAllen scenes as requested by @backtothestart02. (I know you probably wanted more, but this was really hard! I’m sure I’ll post more on it later though because I made a whole list :D)
The rooftop scene in 1.05 - I started watching this show right after season one was over at the request of my brother, who thought I’d like it. He was wrong, I ended up loving it for various reasons. The WestAllen scene in the pilot (the jump-hug) is for sure one of my favorite moments because it played out all movie-epic-like. Upon first viewing I thought it was sweet and knew this was the direction the writers wanted to go. It was so obvious. But the rooftop scene in 1.05 though, that’s when I was like “yup, I’m now 110% sold.” Just look at the gif above, can you not just SEE and FEEL the chemistry oozing between them? The scene is simultaneously hot and sweet because it was mysterious and sexy, but Iris’ request that The Flash help her save Barry was so noble and genuine.
The loft scene in 3.09 - This is hands down one of THE most romantic scenes in the show. Everything from Grant and Candice’s chemistry, to the dialogue, to the setting was all so beautifully done. Look at how longingly they kiss each other! All of the aforementioned, paired with their first official “I love yous” that we know for sure weren’t erased, the snow falling in the background and that gorgeous shot of them wrapped up in each other’s arms before the camera cuts away (too quickly), makes it one of the best and most heartfelt and touching scenes between them.
Jitters meet-cute in 3.01 - There aren’t enough words in the English language to describe how much I adore this scene. It’s the definition of cute and if dictionary definitions had gifs next to them, this scene would be there. What I love most about this scene is it gave us a romcom-style meet-cute. With WestAllen’s history being that of best friends-turned lovers, it was assumed we’d never get this kind of thing on the show, but I love being wrong. It gave us some elementary school backstory, fumbling/bumbling Barry, and blushing Barry and Iris. It also reiterated the fact that Iris would have fallen for Barry regardless (just like she did on Earth-2, etc) because their love is THAT powerful. Basically, this scene brings me immense joy.

Outsider boy: Ponyboy
Prompt: #20, “Ponyboy will see the movie with me, won’t you Pony?”
“What do you mean we’re leaving?” you inquired, staring at the rest of the gang.
You all had only just arrived at the drive-in and, after one conversation with Tim Shepard, the guys have now decided to ditch. You had been waiting to see this movie all week and found it completely unfair for them to bail last minute.
“Look, Y/N,” Dally tried to explain, “we’re all going to the poker game at the Shepards’ place. Just watch the movie by yourself.”
“Are you crazy?” Soda asked rhetorically. “She’ll get jumped for sure. How about you and Pony just go on home and we’ll take you tomorrow night.”
“Wait, Pony, you’re not going?” you questioned.
Ponyboy shook his head as Steve replied, “Yeah, only guys 16 and up. Tough break, kid.”
“Well, that’s kinda perfect,” you stated. “Ponyboy will see the movie with me, won’t you Pony?”
He nodded, “Yeah, I’ll see it with you.”
“He’ll also try to stop his boner—”
“Two-Bit!” Soda scolded his friend.
“Sorry,” Two-Bit murmured.
As the gang left, you heard Johnny mumble a “tell me how it goes, man” to Ponyboy. Once they had all gone, you gestured for Ponyboy to follow you to the plastic seats toward the front.
“Wanna get some popcorn and sodas first?” Ponyboy asked. “I’ll pay.” You smiled and nodded, letting him lead you to the concession stand.
“I’m so excited to see this movie,” you told him in line. “The trailer made it look really good.”
“Yeah, the book was phenomenal,” Ponyboy informed you.
“I didn’t know there was a book,” you stated. “How did it end?”
Ponyboy grinned, “I ain’t gonna spoil it for you, Y/N.”
You giggled, moving down the line with him, “Yeah, alright, fair enough. Well, just tell me one scene you liked. It probably won’t even be in the movie.”
He stared at you for a second, internally contemplating whether or not to tell you. Finally, he sighed with a smile and remarked, “Well, okay. My favorite scene had to be the one where the main boy and girl are together alone, well kinda. They’re out at the movies together.”
“No kidding,” he agreed with a smirk. “The thing is, the boy and girl had been friends since they were little kids and the boy had a humongous crush on her.”
“Does the girl like him back?” you inquired curiously.
“Well, at this point,” Ponyboy explained, “the reader doesn’t know. The story’s told in first person by the boy. We only know that the boy likes her lot because she’s all he can think about.”
“Awe, that’s probably the sweetest thing I’ve ever heard,” you gushed.
“Yeah, I think so too,” he chuckled awkwardly. “So, in this scene, the boy plucks up the courage to kiss the girl and tell her how he feels… in that order.”
“And what does she say?”
“I don’t know yet.”
You furrowed your eyebrows, “What do you mean you don’t know? Didn’t you finish the—”
Suddenly, Ponyboy pressed his soft lips against yours and held your face with his warm hands. The kiss only lasted about four seconds but it felt like hours. It had been gentle, romantic, and utterly perfect.
When Ponyboy pulled away, he grinned at your wide eyes and shy smile, saying, “Y/N, you aren’t going to believe this, but I’ve liked you a lot for a really long time. You wanna be my girl?”
You didn’t reply. All you did was grab his face closer to yours and kissed him again.
