Lesson 11: Cosmic Witchcraft 101

By: Teacher Nova

Live class date and time: 1/19/2017 at 7:00pm CST

Cosmic witchcraft involves bonding with and utilizing celestial or planetary energy in your practice. You may choose to work with one celestial body or a multitude of them, calling upon their energy depending on your intent. In this lesson, we will discuss terminology associated with cosmic magick, and the correspondences associated with various celestial bodies.

What is a cosmic witch?

  • A cosmic witch, by my own definition, is a witch who utilizes planetary and celestial energy in their practice. While some witches tend to feel a connection with elements like earth, air, fire, and water, cosmic witches feel this connection with celestial bodies instead.
  • Some practitioners who practice planetary magick focus on the seven classic “planets” (I know the sun and moon aren’t planets but: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn), whereas a cosmic witch includes the planets Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto as well.
  • A cosmic witch also includes the energy of other celestial bodies when appropriate, such as comets, asteroids, meteors, supernovas, stars/star clusters, galaxies, black holes, etc. We may not be able to see these specific occurrences with the naked eye (most of the time), but we know they exist and harness energy from them when we see fit.
  • A cosmic witch not only uses astrology in their practice, but also astronomy. The big difference here is that astrology is basically a form of divination using the placement of celestial bodies to analyze our emotions and behaviors. Astronomy, on the other hand, is a science that examines the positions, motions, and properties of these celestial bodies.
  • Astrology may be a cosmic witch’s preferred form of divination, but other mediums can be used. I like to use an oracle deck whose meanings are based on astrology, but I also enjoy using Elder Futhark runes and tarot cards. Perhaps a cosmic witch with a strong affinity for Lunar or Neptunian energy might take up water scrying; a cosmic witch who connects with Jupiter may want to use a pair of dice or playing cards; a cosmic witch who connects with Plutonian energy may utilize reading bones as a form of divination, etc.
  • Cosmic witches may worship deities and call upon them for assistance, the most common and relatable being those of Greco-Roman origin considering the planets were named after Roman and Greek Gods, but it is not required and we are not bound by religion. I personally worship the planets themselves, with a focus on Saturn.
  • Aside from deities, the belief in alien beings is totally plausible in the same way that some witches believe in fae or angels.
  • Cosmic witches are not limited to what kind of items they use in their practice: herbs, crystals, incense, sigils, charged water, and other things can be used to utilize and represent celestial energy.
  • The timing used for spells can be based on a variety of things, such as planetary positions/alignments, lunar cycles, days of the week as they correspond to the planet the day was named for, or planetary hours.
  • Astral travel is useful for cosmic witches if they decide to travel within the cosmos, being able to “visit” and visualize the different celestial bodies in their own way.
  • Cosmic witches may use celestial energy to ground, center, and cleanse themselves (and other objects), instead of “earth grounding” or other common methods.

Not That Bad

(A/N): Hello y'all, this is my first imagine and imma just warn you now, this real shitty, so I’m eternally sorry in advance haha. Other than that, enjoy!

Word count: 1,170

Summary: You’re one of Josie’s Pussycats and instead of attending at Cheryl’s party after performing at the dance, you head to Pop’s where you formally meet Jughead Jones for the first time.

Josie McCoy was one of your absolute best friends. When you first moved to Riverdale back in the third grade you became friends almost instantaneously. Her, Valerie and Melody had been singing No Scrubs by TLC when you first met. You were out on the playground looking for someone to play with when you heard them singing.  When you decided to take a little leap of faith and start singing with them - at least for an eight year old it was a leap of faith - you became inseparable.

    So inseparable that Josie wanted you to join her band, and after a long long few years of trying to convince you to join anytime the possibility of a band was brought up, you finally joined. When you did, you had a faint realization that now, you had an actual status and reputation to keep. Being one of the Pussycats™ automatically meant you were one of Riverdale High’s golden girls. I mean, your lead was the mayor’s daughter and one her closest friends was Cheryl Blossom, that meant there were a certain set of unspoken rules you had to follow. But did you follow those rules? Of course not.

    Which brings us to the night of the dance Cheryl was holding in honor of Jason. Of course you and the girls performed and hung out a little, but after the dance when Josie, Valerie and Melody decided to go to Cheryl’s party, you told them you were going to head home. On the way you stopped at Pop’s to get some food.

    You walked in and made your way to the counter, ordering a cheeseburger, onion rings, fries, and a vanilla milkshake. You looked around for an empty booth, which wasn’t hard, it was 10:15 no one was here. No one save for a boy with dark hair typing away at a laptop in front of him. You recognized him from your AP Creative Writing class, the Jones kid. You were 97% curious as to what he was writing about so you decided to make your way over to him.

    The clicking of your heels started as you walked away from the counter and stopped when you got to the boy’s table. You stood there for a second, contemplating what to say, and as you were about to open your mouth, you found that the Jones kid beat you to it.

    “Can I help you?” he said flatly. You froze, a little surprised he had spoken to you.

    After a moment’s hesitation you said “What are you writing about?”. You stood there for a few seconds before the boy answered.

    “This town,” he said. He could tell you were a little confused when he looked up at your face. “More specifically, the whole thing with Jason Blossom.”

    “Oh,” you stood for a few more seconds. “Mind if I sit?”

    “Sure,” he said shrugging. Things were quiet after you sat down. Like, painfully-awkward-silence type quiet. The boy across from you continued to type as if you weren’t there until your food came. He looked down at everything you ordered. You gonna eat all of that?” he asked you, an eyebrow quirked up.

    “Most definitely.” you stated. The corners of his mouth turned up a little as you took a big bite of your burger before he went back to typing. “Jughead, right?” you asked. He nodded. “(y/n)” you introduced yourself with a mouth full of burger.

    “I know,” he said, not looking up from his laptop. “We’re in the same-”

    “Creative Writing class, I know.”

    “Yeah, and you’re the newest addition to Josie the Pussycats.” he stated. “Which makes me curious as to why you’re talking to me. Not to be rude or anything, but don’t you have a reputation to uphold?”

    That caught you off guard. You didn’t know what to say for a second. “There are a,” you paused. “Certain set of rules I should be following, but the rules were never formally spoken out loud so to answer your question, no, I don’t have a reputation to uphold.” Jughead just shook his head, the ghost of smirk on his face. “So, tell me more about the ‘whole thing with Jason Blossom’ you’re writing about.” you said.

    He raised a dark eyebrow at you before asking you “What do you think happened to Jason Blossom that morning of July 4th?”

    “Well, Cheryl said he drowned right?” you asked him, popping a fry covered in vanilla milkshake into your mouth. “Guess he drowned.” you stated simply.

    “Common, he was the captain of the water polo team, he can’t just drown.”

    “True, but” you say pointing a fry at him. “He could’ve gotten caught in something under the water, or hit his head or something, you never know.”

    “I guess you’re right,” he said. “But i still think it’s foul play, just my opinion. Things like this just don’t happen here.”

    The rest of the night was spent talking about what really happened to Jason Blossom and debating whether or not you could get diabetes if you ordered more food. That is until Archie walked in. You immediately recognized him from last year when Josie’s mom ran for mayor, he had helped you guys campaign.

    Archie saw the two of you and he walked over, sat down, and had a small conversation with Jughead, he bid the both of you good night and threw a small smile your way. Once he left you looked at Jughead with a questioning look to which he shook his head as if to say “don’t ask”.  

    After an awkward silence you could no longer stand, you broke the silence with “Yeah, no, I don’t care if this food gives me diabetes and clogged arteries, I’m ordering some more to go.” you stated as you got up and went to the counter, ordering the same thing you had ordered when you came in. After you ordered you made your way back to the booth and sat down again.

    “So,” you said awkwardly.

    “So,” the strange boy across from you said.

    “Thank for letting me sit with you and stuff.”

    A small barely noticeable smile appeared on Jughead’s face. “Well thanks for being good company.” he paused. “And stuff.”

    “I was good company?” you asked, slightly proud of yourself.

    Jughead shrugged. “Not too bad for your first try.”

    You smiled at him. “Well maybe we could do this again, it was…” you took a second to search for the right word. “Interesting.”

    “A second try wouldn’t be too bad.” he said looking up at you. “Why not?” he said.

    You smiled at him one more time before your take out bag was dropped off. You thanked the waitress and got up from your seat and headed for the exit. “Night Jones.” you said as you left.

    “Night.” he whispered with a small smile as watched your now retreating form walk down the street. The only thought on his mind being maybe not all people are that bad.

Ok

There’s this new show on the CW called Riverdale. It’s got all the characters from Archie. The show revolves around the disappearance/murder of Jason Blossom. On the morning that Jason Blossom was murdered, Archie and Ms. Grundy were gettin’ it on by the lakeside and heard the gunshot…..Archie wanted to tell the police what they heard but Ms. Grundy didn’t want him to, because it would mean everyone finding out that they were ~together~. So basically she was like “no Archie what we have is real and I want to protect it, I want to protect Us" oh also Archie is supposed to be a sophomore

compiled from my personal grimoire

All my Victuuri wedding headcanons

Because season 2 is gonna come out and ruin this anyway:

-They get married in Hasetsu the spring after Victor retires, it’s a pretty small, friends and family type event

-Phichit officiates/is Yuuri’s best man/acts as unofficial wedding photographer (”Yuuri, I switched to the 7s because it has the best camera and I have 32 gigs of space I am PREPARED”)

-The fic “One night to blow” is literally how the night before the wedding goes and you straight up can’t tell me differently.

-Everyone coming from out of town stays at Yu-topia

-They get married outside in the late morning as the cherry blossoms are falling

-Phichit leads the parties out separately (with the help of the triplets via cellphone, walkie-talkie style) and has Victor turn away and covers Yuuri’s eyes while they’re approaching so the grooms can do First Looks

-They’re both stunned silent when they see each other and just stand there smiling for a long second, before Phichit pops up behind them as says “Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to witness the union of our two good friends, Yuuri and Victor. But first, the selfie that will break the internet!” *snaps a selfie with the grooms and the wedding party in the background.*

-Yurio tears up

-Yakov REALLY tears up (”Vitya, somehow that boy still wants to marry you and I’m just so happy”)

-Makkachin is the ring bearer

-First pair skate instead of first dance

-At the reception back at the inn, Yurio tells Mama Katsuki about his Grandpa’s Katsudon Piroshki. She asks for the recipe and later adds it to the inn’s menu, thinking it’s a wonderful symbolic meeting of Russian and Japanese cultures. It becomes a local favorite.

Painful *part 1* (Percival G. x Reader)

Request: hi!!! can u do an imagine where Percival and the reader have a “big” age gap (she is younger ) and he’s scared of what people could think if they find out about their relation and broke up with her because of that ? but he realize that people don’t mind about this kind of thing and they end together ? you can do it in 2 or 3 part maybe? (that’s totally strange i know and sorry for my english 😂)

It’s finally up! I’m so sorry it took so long, but I was on vacation and had no time to do it then.

—————————————————————————————

You smiled as you left Jacob’s Bakery. You really felt like today was a good day! After being let off early from work, you walked over to Jacob’s Bakery and bought a dozen cupcakes for you and Percival to eat together. As you left the bakery, you thought of how nice it’d finally be to spend some time with your boyfriend after barely being able to be together because of the long hours he’d spend at MACUSA.

Percival and you had been dating for three months now. Your relationship really began to bloom when the two of you realized you lived in the same apartment building. Everyday you would end up walking by each other, and soon enough you began walking together to work each morning. Those small conversations blossomed into long nights spent together by the fireplace and late night walks around the city. Both of you had feelings for each other, however it took time for Percival to get used to the large age gap between the two of you. Once you began dating, he opened up to you about his worries on the age gap, but you were insistent that you two could work through it.

Arriving at your apartment building, you walked to your apartment and made your way inside. After you set down the cupcakes on a nearby table, you picked up the phone and left a message for Percival to meet you after work at your apartment. 

Knowing that he wouldn’t be able to leave work until 8:00, you plopped down onto your couch and settled into a blissful nap.


After a few hours of napping, you awoke to the sound of soft knocks at your door. You drowsily sat up from your position on the couch and walked over to it. You opened the door and were greeted by a very tired looking Percival Graves. 

Smiling, you took him into your arms for a big hug. “I missed you! Come on in so we can have some cupcakes.” You detached yourself from Percy and turned around to send him a flirtatious wink before walking back into your apartment. 

As you neared the cupcakes on your table you noticed that Percival hadn’t moved from his position by the door. You looked a little closer at him and saw how tired he was. He had bags under his eyes and there was a frown deeply set onto his face.

Your eyes softened when you thought of how much work he must’ve done today. He probably just wanted some sleep. 

“I’m sorry if you’re tired babe. If you want you can go back to your apartment and sleep. We can just eat the cupcakes tomorrow.” You smiled and began to walk towards him to kiss him goodbye before he stopped you.

“No, no. I’m fine. I just need to talk to you about something.” He brushed past you and walked over to the couch to sit down.

Now it was your turn to frown. Did you do something wrong?

As if reading your mind, Percival looked at you and beckoned you to come over. 

“You did nothing wrong, we just need to talk.”

Nodding, you silently moved over to sit next to him. You thought of all the worst situations in your head. The anticipation for what he was about to say was eating away at you.

“We need to talk about the age gap between us. I know you want to work through it, but I think you… would be better off looking for someone more close to your age, sweetheart.”

You frowned and looked at Percival. “Are you breaking up with me?”

Several seconds of silence followed after you asked that daunting question. Percival didn’t want to do this, but he couldn’t risk people finding out he was dating someone years and years younger than him. His subordinates may not think as highly of him if they knew.

After a while, Percival looked at you and nodded. In an effort of comforting you, he reached out and put his hand on top of yours, rubbing his thumb in circles on the back of your hand. 

You recoiled at his touch. Was he ashamed of dating you? Was it just his pride that got into the way? 

“Percival I… we can work through this. I really don’t think age matters, if we can make this work, then we can make it work.”

“I know what you’re saying, but there’s too many risks here. If the people at MACUSA find out, they may not respect me as much as they do now.”

A wave of anger rushed through you. So this was only because of his pride! 

“Why would they not respect you if they knew you were dating me? Is there something about me you don’t like?”

“There is nothing about you that I dislike, but like I said before, there are too many risks. I’m sorry-”

“There are too many risks my ass! You’re just making all of this up. It’s only because of your pride.”

“Y/N. I know you want to work through this, but we can’t. The age gap is too big and I would rather you found someone younger than me to be with you.”

You didn’t even realize you were crying until Percival pulled you into a hug, telling you to not cry and that everything would be find. 

You shoved yourself away from him as if he burned you. Furiously wiping at your tears, you stood up and faced him with all of the strength you had left. 

“Get out. If you’re so ashamed of having me as your girlfriend, then I’m ashamed I even allowed you into my life. Leave.”

Percival nodded in acceptance and swiftly made his way to the door, closing it behind him.

At that moment you broke down. There were so many hopes and memories you had in that relationship, but his pride got into the way and he couldn’t even stand to stay with you. You wondered if it was your fault that this happened. You even wondered if he found someone else to love instead of you.

Sobs racked your body at the thought of that. 

Percival was also hurting inside. Once he made it back to his apartment, he walked to his room and lied down on his bed, thinking over the past event and hoping that you would understand why he did what he did. He hated to see you cry, his heart broke once he saw what his words were doing to you. What you had said last was burned into his mind, and he couldn’t help but feel like he was already missing something in his life. But in his mind, this had to be done. The Graves family was built on respect and power, and he wasn’t willing to lose that just yet.

Peter shuffled in his bed trying to find a comfortable position. He was exhausted but he couldn’t sleep, he had so much going through his head at that time. What would you say tomorrow morning? Were you telling the truth when you said you liked him? or was it the alcohol in your system speaking?

He took in a deep breath and stared at the ceiling. He pulled up his covers and then kicked them aside again. He never had such feelings for someone. He did have crushes but with you… it was so different, something so deep and new, something so lovely. You were unique and beautiful. You were harsh but so tender. His smile dropped when he realized something. How much would it hurt to lose you when you turned him down? he puffed his chest, turned to his side and strutted his eyes.

The next morning, he woke up before the alarm and sighed as he sat up on his bed. He hadn’t felt such anxiety and stress before. Love did hurt. He took a shower, dressed up in his best clothes and entered the kitchen. Aunt May greeted him with a bright smile but he couldn’t return it. there was so much on his mind.

‘what is it, peter? You look so blue.’ A crease of tension formed on her forehead.

‘nothing.’ He gave her a tight smile and ate his cereal.

‘I know it when you lie. Stop bottling it up, speak up.’ She stood in front of him.

‘I am very stressed. I-I am afraid I might fail in this, uhm, thing I have to do today. I don’t know what I would do if I lose this thing I am trying to get.’ He said while keeping his gaze fixed on the bowl.

‘peter parker, you are a winner. You shouldn’t be afraid of losing, whatever is it you are trying to get, will be yours if you want it with all your heart.’ She smiled at him. the corners of his mouth twitched in a smile and he stood up.

‘thanks, aunt may.’ He hugged her. ‘I needed this.’ He said before leaving.

He was walking in the facility taking in sharp breaths and thinking a thousand thoughts. He rubbed his face and groaned internally. This was so hard.Peter stood there for a while before his phone buzzed. He took it out and was both delighted and dismayed to see your message.

‘gym area. Right now. We need to talk. Don’t keep me waiting.’ The message read.

He felt a wave of anxiety again, you never texted without using emojis nor by being dead serious. He took in a deep breath and headed to the gym area He walked fast paced, but his footsteps felt heavy, his heart was pounding, his jaw was clenched and so were his fists.

He was about to enter the gym before he was grabbed and pinned against a wall in some dark corner. With wide eyes, he looked at the face of his attacker. He felt a mixture of emotion on seeing your brightly smiling face. Your face had a dewy glow, your lips rosy, your hair down and your beautiful eyes had a glint he couldn’t read. You looked as beautiful as morning flower, blossoming in its full glory. He tensed again when he realised it all could be taken from him at that very moment.

‘top of the morning to you, sugar.’ You smiled and winked. He didn’t speak anything just stood there staring. ‘okay, so it’s the only place there isn’t any camera and where they won’t look for us.’ You ran your eyes behind you too look if anyone was approaching. ‘so let’s get straight to the point. I like you.’ you smiled.

 He let go of a breath he didn’t know he was holding. A great relief washed over him as he heard those words. He grinned like an idiot and cupped your face. ‘what?’ he asked.

‘I like you, a lot.’ You wrapped your arms around him. he couldn’t hold back and kissed you. you smiled into the kiss before moving your lips in sync.

‘cherry?’ he quirked one brow when he pulled back and you nodded. ‘I love it.’ he said before kissing you again. You pulled back but he didn’t let go of you. he felt the need to hold you close.

‘it was my first kiss.’ A blush crept to your cheeks.

‘really?’ he furrowed his brows. ‘you seemed like you had a lot of practice. I mean you were so good.’ He said.

‘I am come with many surprises, sugar.’ You grinned.

‘stop that.’ He mumbled.

‘what?’ you asked in an adorable manner.

‘calling me sugar. It makes me wanna do,’ he tightened his grip and jerked you forwards. ‘things to you.’ he said and you chuckled. ‘that’s why I like you so much, you are unique in so many ways.’ He brushed some stray hair locks out of your face. you couldn’t stop smiling but you realised something and it faded away.

‘Pete?’ you asked and he hummed in response. ‘how are we going to hide it from them?’ you asked with wide eyes.

‘Bucky and Natasha.’ He said.

  ‘tony.’ You said.

‘oh no.’ you said in unison.

‘we’ll figure something out, let’s go out somewhere, somewhere they won’t find us.’ You offered.

‘that’s my girl.’ He smiled and held your hand.

‘uh-uh, PDA, sweetheart. It’s the key.’ You retrieved your hand.

You were loving each other’s company. Being friends was great but being a couple was something else. It was difficult to steal kisses when you were around the avengers but it was one adventure you both loved. You had even made a few games based on how many kisses or hugs one could steal, the loser had to do whatever the winner wanted.

Peter was waiting for you and Bucky to stop fighting so that he could go out with you. tony entered the common area and sighed witnessing what he was seeing. Steve was trying to separate you both while you refused to give Bucky his phone.

‘you won’t text her!’ you tumbled down the couch and ran away from Bucky. ‘she isn’t good enough.’ You shouted.

‘that’s none of your business! And I am not going out with her again!’ he tackled you to the ground.

  ‘Bucky get off her!! you are going to crush her!’ Steve shouted and pulled him away.

Tony and peter were watching it all. Tony turned away but noticed something and stopped. He moved closer to peter and noticed a side of his lip had a bright red mark.

‘why the hell do you have a bite mark on you lip!?’ tony questioned and peter struggled with an explanation.

The three of you stopped fighting and moved to their side. You slid the phone in your jacket’s false pocket and Bucky shot you a glare.

‘what’s the matter?’ Steve asked.

‘peter has a girlfriend he never told us about!’ tony said.

‘so what? It’s his personal life.’ You tried to change the topic.

‘well, you are his mentor, what do you expect?’ Bucky said. ‘I am proud of you. you are not as wild as the kids these days.’ Bucky kept an arm around your shoulder. Only if he knew….

 ‘I don’t owe you any explanation, I am leaving.’ Peter said and stomped out of the room.

You were sparing with Natasha; it had been two rounds and you both were even at this point. She didn’t tell you but she was proud of how much you had learned from her. You punched her in the side which she dodged with ease.

‘concentrate, chip.’ She warned.

‘can you stop calling me weird nicknames?’ you complained.

‘shut up and focus, red!’ Bucky shouted as he entered the gym with Steve.

You groaned and kicked Natasha in the shin. She fell and you got her in a choke, she tapped and you let go of her.

‘good work.’ She smiled and you grinned. you tilted your head in the other direction as you were getting up but she grabbed your arm.

‘is that a..’ she moved the neck of your t-shirt downwards. ‘IS THAT A HICKEY?!’ she said out loud and Bucky looked at you with wide eyes.

‘what!?’ both Steve and Bucky said in unison. They both paced towards you.

‘what hickey?!’ Bucky examined your neck. You slapped his hand away.

‘for god’s sake!’ you said and he moved backwards. ‘you too!’ you said to Natasha.

  ‘how – who gave it to you?!’ Bucky asked getting angrier every minute.

  ‘no one! I hit myself with the case of my sword.’ You lied perfectly.

‘wait a minute,’ Natasha said and looked down trying to remember something ‘you are dating peter?!’ she exclaimed.

‘no!’ you got up.

‘so it was a onetime thing!?!’ Bucky said furiously.

 ‘no! there is nothing like that!’ you tried to explain them.

‘I am going to find stark.’ Steve the only calm one said.

‘I am going to get peter.’ Natasha and Bucky said in unison.

You were running around the base until you found peter in Tony’s lab.

‘holy shit!’ you cursed and ran to get peter.

‘hey! Babe,’ peter got up as he saw you.

‘peter, just run!’ you said trying to push him out of a window.

‘the hell you going, punk?!’ Bucky entered the room with Natasha. Natasha didn’t look that angry but Bucky was blowing off steam.

‘no!’ you put up a protective shield over you both.

‘the hell did I tell you about fooling around with her?!’ Bucky said.

‘who told-‘ you nudged him in the ribs.

‘they already know, dumbass! Shut up!’ you said. ‘okay, I know you guys are angry- ‘you said calmly.

‘(y/n)! peter! What am I hearing!?’ tony entered the room.

‘oh god,’ you whined. ‘everyone calm the fuck down! and let’s talk about it in the common room, okay?!’ you said.

‘fine by me.’ Tony said.

‘come on, Barnes.’ Natasha kept a hand Bucky’s shoulder and led him out.

Everyone was sat in the common room. everyone had varying expressions on their faces. Thor, wand and Pietro were happy, Bruce, Clint, Sam and vision didn’t care much and were okay with it. Steve, Bucky, Natasha and tony were however angry. You both were standing with each other’s supporting parties.

‘its all your fault.’ Bucky turned to tony. ‘you let your ‘kid arachnid’ go to that party alone with my (y/n)!’

  ‘my fault! I am the one who should be worried about my spider son! (y/n) calls you two,’ he pointed at Natasha and Bucky. ‘her family, what if she can’t control her powers, when they’re-‘

‘don’t say it!’ Steve interrupted. ‘and stop fighting! It’s no one’s fault.’ He sighed and leaned against the table.

‘I won’t allow them to date.’ Natasha said. ‘(y/n,)’ she turned to you. ‘It’s not safe.’

  ‘the kid shoots webbings out of his arms for fuck’s sake!’ Bucky pointed at him. ‘who could know it better than me, I was stuck in that shit once.’

‘that was at the airport and he was only doing what was right!’ tony shot back. ‘and she’s deadly too,’ he looked at him and then at you. ‘no offence, (y/n). I love you and all but, like tin man, I’ve had a bad experience with you too. You once almost strangled me thinking I was some invader.’

‘I said I was sorry!’ you shot back.

‘would you guys relax,’ Wanda stood up. ‘I have heard peter’s thoughts and I can assure you he’s good for her. And (y/n)? she could use her powers and change your minds in a matter of seconds.’

‘let them have some normalcy, they are out there saving the world at such young age. If they find comfort in each other, then what’s wrong?’ Sam said.

‘I second this.’ Bruce said and Clint nodded in agreement.

‘Nat?’ Clint looked at her. ‘let the kids be.’ He said.

‘fine.’ She sighed. ‘but I know where you live.’ She pointed at peter.

‘tony,’ Steve faced him.

‘alright capsicle,’ he sat down. ‘I never really had much problem, to be honest.’ He leaned back. ‘maybe I was hungry and sleep deprived so overreacted.’ He muttered.

‘Bucky?’ you turned to face him. ‘trust me? He makes me too happy. He makes feel normal and I feel like I belong. Do I have to give you this ‘dad I love him’ shit? Can’t you just see?’ you half smiled.

‘you win, red.’ He ruffled your hair. ‘if you are happy, so am I.’ shrugged. He turned to peter and hardened his expression again. ‘take good care of her. Hurt her and I’ll kill you.’

‘yes, sir.’ Peter smiled. you hugged him and kissed his cheek.

‘before you go any further, let’s set some ground rules.’ Steve said.

‘yeah, that’s important.’ Bruce said.

  ‘keep the PDA at minimal.’ Bucky said.

‘no cute nicknames around me.’ Tony added. ‘

you could’ve said a plain no.’ peter said.

‘are you being-‘Natasha was interrupted mid- sentence by you.

‘let me just clear it all up, we didn’t ‘do it’ and we made out multiple times. One time with my shirt off but that doesn’t matter. Okay, bye!’ you said everything way to quick before running off with peter.

‘did she say ‘shirt off’?’ Bucky asked and Steve nodded. ‘I’m going to beat him up.’ He set off to find you.

Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms,
In fields and villages
As far as you can see.
Is it a mist, or clouds?
Fragrant in the morning sun.
Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms,
Flowers in full bloom.

Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms,
Across the spring sky,
As far as you can see.
Is it a mist, or clouds?
Fragrant in the air.
Come now, come now,
Let’s look, at last!

My Promise |Baekhyun Scenario

A fluffy date on Baekhyun’s day off. 

(there are hints of smut but nothing more than pg-13ish and a sentence or 2 that implies more than pg-13 actions) 



It was finally the end of EXO’s restless weeks of promotions and Baekhyun wanted to spend every moment of his one day off with me. He told me to meet him at a coffee shop at midnight so that we could have all 24 hours just bfor us.

I arrived around 11:45 and there was a worker there to let me in, but as soon as I sat down at a table that was decorated with sunset roses and 2 cups of what smelled like red velvet hot chocolate, he disappeared into the back room never to reappear again this evening.

I sat waiting for Baekhyun, but midnight came and went. I was all alone and it was almost 12:30 when I heard a sound coming from somewhere in the coffee shop.

The voice was faint, but I knew exactly who it was. His distinctive smooth vocals that would caress the air as he sang while the light taps of his feet on the rustic wooden floors set a slow and relaxing tempo. He wasn’t that close, but I knew he was here.

I heard the gentle steps approaching as the voice grew louder and the words more distinct. I smiled, not looking away from the now luke-warm hot chocolate, since I knew that the second I did, I would be attacked with one of the worst tickle fights of my life since that was our usual greeting. I would normally just let it happen, but I would rather, in this moment, just let his voice serenade me instead.

As the chorus was coming to an end, he slowly moved to lean on the table across from me, trying to pull my gaze up from my drink. I snuck a glance and blushed as I caught a glimpse of the man who was all mine. His dark silk shirt was unbuttoned at the top and he had on tight black jeans that accented his newly dyed hair. His eyeliner only enticed me to glance up again to admire his beauty and talent for a moment longer.

Baekhyun was giving me a slightly amused smile as he continued to sing softly acapella. I noticed that the song was almost over.

I glanced through the window just behind him, only to notice that the snow has slowly began to fall gracefully from the sky. I smiled softly and looked away from the window to the love of my life as the last words of the song were sung.

As he finished, the lights in the café dimmed to the point of barely being on and Baekhyun pulled out a box of matches and lit the few candles that were scattered on the table, illuminating his features.

“Hi,” He said softly as he pulled his chair closer to mine.

“Hi,” I responded with some bewilderment at the effort his put into the night already. I saw him admiring the smile that had crept upon my face as he grabbed my hand and gently kissed it.

“Can I get a real kiss now?” I asked as he shifted to wind his arms around my waist.

“That depends,” He said in his playful tone as a mischievous smirk found its way onto his face.

“On what?” I asked as I slowly moved my lips closer to his.

“Is that extra hot chocolate for me?” he erupted into his contagiously boisterous laughter.

“I can’t imagine it belongs to anyone else.” I responded as I closed the gap between us.  

Baekhyun immediately responded to the kiss and I savored the moments like these where we could get lost in each other with no interruptions.

His hands roamed from my waist to my thighs and he was venturing into territory that should only be encroached on in a much more private place than a coffee shop, even if we were alone.

“Baek-“ I breathlessly moaned as I broke away from his lips, “we can’t…not here…”  His lips moved to my jaw and then along my neck until he found that one spot that always makes me melt into his touch. “Later….I promise…but not here…” I barely got my words out before Baekhyun took hold of my bottom lip with his teeth and lightly tugged.

“If that’s a promise, then we can continue on with our date and come back to this later,” he seductively answered.

He moved my head into his lap and began telling me the stories of his travels abroad: The fights between Kyungsoo and Chanyeol, the crazy amount of money Suho spent to keep everyone happy, and the crazy new choreography that both Sehun and Jongin almost broke their necks trying to perfect.

We talked through the night, and before I realized it, the sun began to rise outside of the café.

Moments like these with Baekhyun were my favorite. We were laying in the early rays of the morning, letting the light caress our faces as he gently played with my hair. He combed his fingers through my soft curls as we watched the colors of the morning blossom.

“I know I promised you a whole day,” Baekhyun began with sadness creeping into his usually warm smile, “But we have to leave to go back to China this afternoon.”

He leaned down and gently kissed my forehead. “I’m sorry.”

I sat up and pulled him towards me for a passionate kiss.

“Then I guess we should head back to your place so I can help you pack…” I said softly on his lips as I pulled ever so slightly away.

“Is that all you want to do?” He asked softly as his lips found their was to the corner of my mouth.

“Well…If I recall…” I began as I unbuttoned a few more of the buttons on his shirt, “I have a promise to keep…and we don’t want to turn me into someone who doesn’t keep her promises, now do we?”

Baekhyun kissed me fiercely as he pulled me outside to hail a taxi.

This day together might be cut short, but I was going to make sure it was one where we could never forget a single moment.
