a beautiful stranger tall and fair

anonymous asked:

you slipped on a patch of ice and i happened to be walking behind you and you fell into my arms wow you’re really attractive au - Holsom please :) :)

Adam Birkholtz has decided that he is a very lucky man.

He is lucky because he is very large. He is lucky because he is very strong. He is lucky because he has quick reflexes. He is lucky because he was all three of those things at the same time when a stranger walking in front of him slipped backwards on the ice, and Holster managed to catch him easily.

But mostly, Holster thinks, he is lucky because that stranger he caught was hot.

“Oh my God, I am, so, so sorry, dude,” the stranger had sputtered as Holster gently placed him back on his feet. “I wasn’t paying attention to where I was going, and I didn’t mean at all to–”

Holster laughed. “Chill, bro, it’s fine. No harm, no foul.” And that’s when he really looks at this guy, and he knows his poor bisexual heart has stopped dead.

He’s fucking beautiful is what he is. Jaw that could probably cut glass, short black hair and flawless dark skin, eyes that make Holster want to do corny shit like write poems about eyes. He’s tall, almost as tall as Holster is, and he’s built. And, Holster realizes as he watches the stranger bite his lip and stutter out an apology, he’s fucking adorable, too.

It’s not even fair.

Holster finally collects himself and stops staring, making himself focus on what Hot Stranger is actually saying. Something about coffee, and ruining his shoes, and that’s when he glances down at realizes that yeah, his beat-up gray sneakers have been soaked and are turning brown. Holster had been so distracted, he hadn’t even felt it. Hot Stranger is still apologizing.

“Seriously, I feel so awful, I should have been more careful, I can pay for a new pair, really, I swear–”

Holster cuts him off. “Dude, you are not paying for a pair of shoes. These were old as hell anyway, this’ll just give me, like, the incentive to actually go shopping for new ones.”

Hot Stranger frowns. “Still, please, there’s gotta be something I can do…”

Holster makes a lightning-quick calculation. He feels his face turning red, but he figures now is his best shot. “Well, um, maybe you can’t pay for a new pair of shoes, but I wouldn’t say no to coffee sometime?”

Hot Stranger’s eyes widen, and for a moment Holster is afraid he’s made a terrible mistake, but Hot Stranger speaks first. “Oh, wow, I mean…yeah, no, that’d be…that’d be really great, actually. Um. I could give you my number?”

Holster grins as he unlocks his phone and passes it over. “Yeah, sounds good, man.”

Hot Stranger’s fingers fly over the keyboard, entering his number, and after a few seconds he hands the phone back over. “I kinda have to get to class now. I’m in med school, actually, and they really, really don’t like it if you’re late. But, uh, it was really good meeting you! Catch you later. Well, I guess you actually, uh. Caught me already. I mean, literally. Um. See you later.”

Holster keeps grinning, even though he knows it probably looks dumb at this point. “You, too.”

Hot Stranger smiles nervously and turns around to finally go to class, and Holster knows that today is going to be a good day.

(Several feet down the sidewalk, Justin Oluransi has decided that he is a very lucky man.)

“I suddenly see him standing there, a beautiful stranger tall and fair.”

So there is the same kind of post I’ve seen where people like to compare the Kristanna meeting to the idealised meeting Anna has when meeting her prince. And as much as I absolutely love all of those gif sets and love relating different parts of the movie together, sadly this analysis is going to be going against those beautiful interpretations.

Kristanna is definitely my favorite Disney couple. Like ever. And that’s because they are so real. And yes sorry Tangled fans, even though pairing up a theif and a princess was a pretty big step for Disney, a real relationship takes everything to the next level.

Kristoff and Anna don’t meet in the usual cliche way (love at first sight) or even any kind of cliche way. They just meet in a small shop, like how anyone could meet anyone in a small conveniant store. And they don’t hate eachother at first sight either like some of those romantic comedies, they are just confused by one another. Kristoff one one hand is huge, and completely covered in snow, not to mention that he looks like a big scary snow monster. Anna, on the other hand, is dressed in a summer royal dress. Why would a royal want to travel this far in only her summer dress? They just don’t understand eachother. They don’t really talk to eachother much either. It’s just like someone telling you to move over because there is something they want to get behind you. It’s really typical stuff.

And that is why this meeting is special. It’s not a huge pivotal moment, it’s not magical, it doesn’t have any sparks. And that is why it’s freaking brilliant. Because it’s so normal. So casual. It’s basically telling you that you don’t have to fall on a guy to meet your true love, you don’t have to see him and love him at first sight. Your true love could be that guy who told you to move over because you were blocking the milk cartons at the grocery store.

And that is why I don’t think that the creators wanted us to match Anna’s idealisations and this scene together. Because this scene is meant to show us and her that you don’t have to meet him in the most romantic way. You maybe won’t be fetchingly draped against the wall, or suddenly see him standing there. And maybe you won’t laugh and talk that evening.

Because what really matters isn’t how you meet someone, what matters, is what you feel towards that someone in the future.

Credits to sorryblondie for the gifs and annaandkristoffbjorgman for being so sweet to post some other gifs even though I didn’t use them. I may have just gotten an idea for those ones so don’t worry, they’ll be showing up soon.
