Whooo, it’s Friday Reads! My favorite moment of the week. I’m reading Neil Gaiman’s new Norse Mythology because I’m going to be doing an email Q&A with him next week – watch this space!

Mama Susan Stamberg is reading Ann Patchett’s Commonwealth.

Friend of the Desk Colin Dwyer is reading The Vegetarian, which he compares delightfully to Bartleby the Scrivener.

PCHH producer Jessica Reedy has Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk.

Code Switch’s Karen Grigsby Bates reports, “I’ve been reading Kathleen Collins’ posthumously-published collection of interrelated short stories, Whatever Happened To Interracial Love?  She was a playwright and filmmaker as well as an author, and these stories unfold like little movies of their own.  And they’re a vision of black life that isn’t seen often enough.  Makes you wonder what she would have done if she’d lived longer. (She died at 46, of breast cancer.)”

And Boss Lady Ellen is reading Get Well Soon: History’s Worst Plagues and the Heroes Who Fought Them.

How about you?

Fiction Friday #089

One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus by J.C. Geiger

SUMMARY

A New York Times bestseller

One of Us Is Lying is the story of what happens when five strangers walk into detention and only four walk out alive. Everyone is a suspect, and everyone has something to hide.

Pay close attention and you might solve this.

On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention.

Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule.

Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess.

Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing.

Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher.

And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High’s notorious gossip app.

Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention Simon’s dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose?

Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them. -GoodReads

Snippet #10

Gardner Island ~ July 2, 1937

I licked my lips, already drying from the heat and salty air. When was the last time I took a real swig of water?

But thinking about water right now would only make me miserable. Water was no longer—well, it hadn’t been a plentiful resource for Noonan and me for some time now. We often found ourselves running out of water far quicker than fuel. Now it was even more precious.

Noonan, in his usual way, interrupted my train of thought. “We need to find water.”

“I know that.”

“Take your hands off your hips, Miss Earhart. You’re not in charge anymore.”

I dug my fingers into my clothing, face already aglow, I was sure. “Why, pray tell, do you think—”

Honestly, Miss Earhart,” Noonan said, his tone changing into something akin to exasperation, “you can’t tell me you’re the more experienced or the more worthy of leading when you’ve never been in a survival situation.”

“I’m not worthy? Well, no, of course not. How could I be, when I never—no, wait, I was a Girl Scout, wasn’t I?”

This quieted Noonan for a moment. He pursed his lips. I could tell he was debating whether or not to get into a full-fledged argument with a lady such as myself. I, on the other hand, was more than ready.

Snippet #9

Gardner Island ~ July 2, 1937

I hissed his name two more times, and heard nothing in response. With nothing to distract me, I became all too familiar with the creature on the tree. It was a crab, to my relief, and not a demon sent from some underworld to collect me for its master. I wondered if it would—not could, as that question was already answered by the size of his claws—do me harm if it wanted to.

It moved. Just a few inches down the tree. Still two feet off the ground or so, but the agility it displayed froze my blood.

A twig snapped, leaves crunched, and the crab skittered down the tree and was out of sight in half a moment. Despite my pleas to my body to react, or at least turn around so I could face the predator about to eat me like a real woman, I was still paralyzed when a weight landing on my shoulder caused me to yelp.

“What’s the matter?” Noonan’s voice, a gruff mixture of caution, concern, and irritation, reached my ears.

A gust of air produced by unconsciously holding my breath escaped along with my words. “There was this crab on the tree—”

“I know, I saw it when I passed through here the first time.” Noonan grabbed my hand as I swayed. “Miss Earhart, are you alright?”

I wasn’t truthfully. I liked to think I kept my wits about me in dangerous situations. Even when we were set to fall out of the sky, I was thinking clearly enough to get us at least a bit further away from our time of death. But that crab was a bad omen, I was sure of it. It said, I will see your demise.

“Perfectly fine,” I muttered. “Now, where did you put our things?”

@marcstjamestwin: Ok. I love your blog and I was hoping to have any one shot of a Steve imagine where Tony is trying to make him admit his true feelings to you? Making him jealous kind of thing? Luv you!

TITLE: Jealous Steve
CHAPTER NO/ ONE SHOT: One shot
AUTHOR: Admin RCN
WORD COUNT: 1191
ORGINAL IMAGINE: N/A
NOTES/WARNINGS: Besides Tony and Steve, the Avengers are very… fan fictionie. But hey, this is a fan fiction so fuck it.

Steve sat in the living room, watching you like you were the only one left of your kind. As if you were the most beautiful thing he had ever seen. All you were doing was reading a book whilst being curled up on the arm chair but Steve still thought you looked lovely.

Originally posted by rogers-room

You didn’t notice the way Steve looked at you but Tony had. Tony noticed how whenever you were all in a briefing, Steve would always take your opinion as gospel. How when you and Steve had a conversation, he would stutter slightly or his cheeks would turn a little red. His body may be a super soldier, but he still behaved like the skinny dork Steve around woman.

“Y/N, I need to talk to you about something.” Tony said after knocking on your bedroom door and walking in. You got uncomfortable on the arm chair and moved to your room.

“What’s wrong?” You asked worriedly, putting your book to the side. He sat down on the end of your bed and looked at you seriously.

“It’s about Steve.” You sat up straight, worried at what could have happened to your best friend. “He likes you.”

“I should hope so.” You laughed, not understanding what he meant. “He’s one of my best friends.”

“No, I mean… like like.” He said, rolling his eyes at the childish phrase. You raised your eyebrows and did a nervous chuckle. “I have a plan.”

“Go on…” You said cautiously.

“We are going to make that old man jealous.”


“Good morning.” Tony said as he walked into the kitchen wearing only pyjama bottoms. He walked up to you who was sitting at the breakfast bar with Steve and Natasha and kissed you on the cheek. You bit your cheek to stop yourself smirking as you watched Steve look anywhere but at the two of you. Thankfully everyone in the Tower knew yours and Tony’s plan so there were no weird looks from Natasha.  Tony grabbed himself a croissant and sat down beside you at the bar, with Natasha and Steve opposite you.

“What are your plans for today?” Natasha said, quickly taking a bite from her food to stop her smiling.

“Got some work to do but then I’m taking this,” Tony nudged your shoulder. “out for romantic meal.” Steve dropped his spoon into his bowl and leant back in his chair, an annoyed look on his face but he said nothing.

“I’ll see you guys later.” You said, throwing your plate into the sink. You had to admit, you were a little disappointed Steve said nothing.


You were in the training room, hitting the punching bag when you heard an awkward cough from behind you. Turning around, you saw Steve wearing his workout clothes.

“So, how long have you and Tony been a couple?” Steve asked, looking anywhere besides at you.

“He asked me out last night.” You turned away so Steve wouldn’t see your smirk. Was he already jealous?

“Ah.” Was all he managed to say before Tony and Thor walked in.

“There she is.” Tony beamed, holding you around the waist and giving you a quick kiss. You glanced quickly at Steve and noticed his death glare towards Tony. “I’ve booked us a table for eight. Then I was thinking tomorrow we go out for lunch then catch a movie?”

Originally posted by fanfic-natic

“Actually I was thinking me and Y/N could do some training together tomorrow.” Steve blurted out. Tony, Thor and you looked over and you nodded at him in agreement.


“Say ah.” Tony laughed as he tried to feed you a slice of water melon. You two were always close and you weren’t even trying to make Steve jealous at this moment – it just happened to be the point that Steve lost it. He walked in as Tony managed to squash watermelon on your cheek and, upon seeing Steve enter, licked it off.

“Do you have to do that out here.” Steve snapped.

“Someone’s a little touchy today.” You laughed. Tony winked at you before getting up and leaving without another word. “What’s wrong with my Steve?” You said in a childish voice.”

“Nothing.” He replied blankly whilst leaning against the wall.

“You can tell me.” You said. You joined him against the wall and you both stood in silence. You got bored of waiting so pushed the topic. “You weren’t like this until me and Tony got together.” Steve snorted at this. He looked at you and for the first time in your life, you saw it. You saw how lovingly he looked at you. But he did nor said anything. Instead, his eyes just stayed locked onto yours. You were bored of waiting. “Oh for goodness sake. Kiss me already!” You groaned. Steve looked shocked and began stuttering, his cheeks turning red.

“But Tony-“

“Tony and I were trying to make you jealous. Which worked.” Steve looked taken back but after opening and closing his mouth a couple times, he finally stuttered.

“Does that mean I can take you out tomorrow night?”
