@softkent ‘s 14 Days of Love fic-a-thon, day 6: ruined surprises!
It all started because Katya decided to have mercy on Eric and let him take morning classes this semester. WGSS120 was an amazing class, Professor Atley had the coolest stories about how postwar industrialization led to compulsive female domesticity, and his seatmate wasn’t the worst thing to see at 9:30 AM every Tuesday and Thursday. He would have almost been dreamy if he had the slightest knack for small talk. As it was, Eric didn’t even have a name to go on, just intent blue eyes and an ass that even the baggiest of shorts couldn’t mask.
One day, Eric decided to drop a hospitality bomb on the guy and see if he could coax a response out of him. They were both consistently early to class, so Eric budgeted ten minutes for a brief chat before class started and turned to Cute Guy with a winning smile on his face.
“So how about that reading, huh? I thought it was fascinating how cake mix became a prestige thing- everyone in my family bakes, and I don’t think we’ve used a box mix in forty years.”
“Yeah,” the guy said, “I think it had something to do with the scientific advancements they made in food preservation for the troops. Shelf stabilization wouldn’t have been nearly as achievable in earlier years.”
Miraculously, once you got onto a clear subject, Cute Guy was actually a decent conversationalist. Eric found himself losing track of time as they dissected last night’s chapters of Marling.
“And the American National Exhibition anecdote!” he giggled. “Who can even tell the difference between Russian and American Coke?”
“I bet it’s easier with all of the Soviet Union breathing down your back. ‘Da, cola of Mother Russia is vkusno!’”
“Nice accent,” Eric told Cute Guy.
“Really? Thanks, I’ll have to tell Geno. He’s always knocking my Russian. He’s, uh, a friend of my dad’s, and we both play hockey.”
“So that’s what your weird doodles are? Hockey plays?”
“Yeah, I’m captain of the hockey team here. We’re not half bad, if I say so myself.”
“Wow,” Eric enthused, “you must be a pretty good skater, then.”
“Yeah, I guess. I could teach you sometime, if you want. I’m Jack, by the way,’ Cute Guy said.
Tacky, cheap, ugly. The writers will regret the fuck out of this. If this was always the plan, it should have been done in S2, there was no need to fuck around with a wedding. They actually killed off the one person who’s absence would irrevocably alter the very foundation of the show & for what? A three second cheap twist that the audience will resent forever? Ended the best written relationship/marriage on TV right now so Jane can get back with her ex? Be miserable for two seconds before a time jump? Start from the beginning & redo the same things we’ve already seen for 3 seasons? OH, AND RUINED THE BEST BROMANCE TELEVISION HAS EVER SEEN?
Ahhhh. I can’t believe I thought Jane The Virgin was the one show that wasn’t infested with the usual CW stupidity & garbage tropes. You almost had me, fuckers.
REQUESTED BY @storyofmyotp: could you uh maybe do a
MishaxReader imagine? Maybe they have a panel at spn con along with J2? Lots of
fluff and cute PDA from Misha and the reader? If that’s not your thing then I
understand. Worth a shot to ask though lol. Love your writing❤
You put on your jacket and take the mike that is
handed to you. You look beside you, Jensen, Jared and Misha already ready to
get on stage.
Today is the most exciting event in the year: Convention.
You love doing panels, being able to see and learn more of the SPN Family.
Also, the panel is with Jared, Jensen and your boyfriend Misha.
You fell in love the second you met him. You
already seen him on TV, but in real life, it hit you right away. In the
show, you play Sam and Dean’s Winchester little sister, and Castiel’s soul
mate. You like to think that you are also soul mate in the normal world.
“Ready?” Misha asks you.
You look up at him, smiling widely and grab his
hand. A simple answer to say that you are.
“Please welcome Jensen Alckes! Jared Padalecki!
Misha Collins and (Y/N) (Y/L/N)!” Richard shouted out from the stage.
The four of you walk on the stage, smiles on your
faces and waving to the fans who are ecstatic.
“Hey guys!” Jared greeted.
The public shouts becomes louder.
Everyone greets the fans and finally start the panel.
After twenty minutes of panel, a surprise arrived
on stage: Jeffery Morgan and Samantha. Your fake parents, and it is amazing
that you are all gathered here.
“Hi” a nervous fan greeted you all
“my question is for Samantha and Jeffery: what do you think John and Mary
would think about their daughter having a relationship with an angel”.
At this question, both you and Misha burst into a
“Well” Jeffery started “John
wouldn’t believe in angels and then probably be angry and then threatened an angel
so that he won’t hurt her”.
“Dean already did that” Jensen said
raising his hand “Jensen too”.
“Oh come on” you laughed “you know
that even in real life he is an angel”.
“That’s cute” Misha teased stealing you
The public shouts as your lips connects and you
even hear some people shouting “ooooowwwn”.
“I did too!” Jared said “(Y/N) is
like a little sister to us”.
Misha takes a step away to speak “I wouldn’t
hurt her anyway. Also, if I want to stay alive, I have too. There’s a moose who
is very tall”.
The crowd screams.
“Also, I would beat your ass” you
pointed out “I learned a few tricks from (Y/TV/N)”.
“Like a total badass” Misha agreed.
You sit on the chair and Misha beside you and your
left, Jensen at your right.
“And I think that you two are cute” Samantha said “when
I saw that you were a couple in real life and in the show, I was very happy”.
“Thanks” you smiled.
Once again, you steal a kiss from Misha and once
again get the crowed to scream.
This is for those who love Spectacular Spider-man or wish to check out the show out of curiosity. Here’s where you can purchase and watch both seasons of Spectacular Spider-man. Tell me if the link doesn’t work and I might help.
But if you’ve already seen the show and know of the ending, and know that all those reviews citing this show as one of the greatest Spider-man shows ever created, then come and support this movement if you want the show to be revived.
Now, as much as I don’t care for Ultimate Spider-man, I’ll let the show run its course even if it unexpectedly gets another season, so I will be patient. No, we will all be patient. We won’t go around whining about Ultimate sucking and that Disney should go and bring back Spectacular Spider-man. It’s not like they didn’t try.
Note: after listening to a recent interview with Greg Weisman, I feel like I should correct the statement below about why the show was cancelled.
The show was cancelled NOT because of copyright problems, so Disney buying out Marvel had nothing to do with it. It was only cancelled because Sony was being… well, unwise with their decisions. But while Disney has the tv rights for Spidey, Sony has the essentials for Spectacular Spider-man, so chances for a revival are slim for now. But as we’ve witnessed from Captain America: Civil War, if Sony and Marvel can work together to bring Spider-man into the MCU, then they can do the same to bring back the show. Greg Weisman has even openly stated that he would happily return for Spectacular Spider-man should it get revived, so there’s no difficulty in asking him to come back afterwards. And here’s another interesting fact: Disney revived a show that used to be a Nickelodeon cartoon called Doug, and this was in the 90s. So it’s not truly impossible for Disney to do the same for Spectacular Spider-man. And in 2008, they bought back character rights from Universal, and it was Oswald The Lucky Rabbit, a character created long before Mickey Mouse by Disney himself.
True, the division that animated Spectacular Spider-man has closed down, but Disney can help out with the animation. After all, it is Disney. Besides, the show was intended to have 65 episodes, and so far 26 have been completed. 39 are left undone and there are so many unanswered questions that need to be answered.
But we can’t simply suggest to them to make a deal just like that. We’re going to have to persuade them into wanting to. How can you do that? Well… 1. You can suggest for Netflix to have it back on. If#KeepBingingYJ has taught me anything, it’s that a show will catch the producers’ attention once they see how many hits it’s making on Netflix. But make sure to be specific as last time they had it on Netflix, it was just the first season. A high demand for it will definitely help get it back on.
2. You can simply buy it on DVD/Blu-ray. They’re available on Amazon, but make sure it isn’t used. Or, as I posted above, you can purchase it on Google Play, or on iTunes if you’re in the US. Heck, you can simply go on IMDB and find episodes on demand there from Amazon Video. It’s that easy.
3. Fan art can help. I did my part here, too.
4. Spread this word around on social media to show your love and support, and that you would love for the show to be revived. You can also reblog this post around so that others can see how they can help out. Now let’s go and get #SpecSpidey4Netflix
Update: I am aware of the new Spider-man show coming out in 2017, but do know that I’m not going to give up on Spectacular. If the show is as good or even better than Spectacular Spider-man, I’ll check it out. But regardless of whether it’s good or bad, I will continue to show support for The Spectacular Spider-man no matter what. I will be surprised if it’s an actual sequel to Spectacular considering that Spidey’s design looks very similar, and happier if that’s what they’re going with.
I’ve seen Zero Hour on TV twice today already (not Disney XD on demand, I mean ON the actual live broadcast channel) ??????? I mean, I haven’t watched it yet cause I wanna watch it at the time I always do and also cause I’ve caught it nearly halfway done both times and I wanna see the whole thing, but?????? What’s going on????
JoJo was getting ready in her quiet, peaceful home, getting ready to go see Dean Ambrose. Who she made plans with to watch Breaking Bad. She had seen the TV series already and knew it like the back of her hand, but as soon as hers and Dean’s friendship was growing over the past few weeks she wanted to share her love for the show with him, like she always has in the past with several friends. JoJo only really ever wore minimal make-up on a daily bases, so she painted a light coat of foundation on her face, added mascara and a nude lipstick to her lips, and she was ready to go.
She picked her leather jacket up along with her keys and was ready for her journeys to Dean’s house. She pulled up her conversation with Dean on her phone from a few hours ago and put his address into her sat-nav that he had sent her previously. She was nervous as to if he was going to like the TV show that she suggested for him to try, but either way she was grateful that he was going to take time out of his day to at least try it.
After a twenty to thirty minute drive, she arrived outside the house of Dean’s. She took a deep breath while her hands were still clutched onto the steering wheel even after the engine was turned off. She was glancing at his outside from the front window of her car, obviously not having to lean very far to glance because of the height of her. This was a new experience to JoJo, she had never been to Dean’s or had much conversation with him apart from these few weeks and it was very much so out of her comfort zone, which she didn’t leave very often, but she was always up for trying to try new things. She was an excited with a mixed of nervous at the same time but she knew it wouldn’t be long until the nervousness would fade. She muttered to herself ‘This is stupid.’, laughed to herself then hopped out of the car to walk up the path that lead to his front door and knocked loudly enough for him to her.
“I’m going to throw up” Rhiannon tells me as I put the car in park in front of my dad’s house.
“My family isn’t that bad” I joke but I realize that’s she’s a little green in the face and she’s been biting her lip for the whole ride over.
“ I just want your mom, dad, and brother and sister to like me” she says before putting her face in her hands.
“They already like you babe, they’ve seen you on tv and Jaxon listens to your album way more than mine the little traitor” this gets a laugh from my girl and she pulls her hands off her face to look at me.
“I’ve never had a boyfriend before-”
“which still confuses me to the ends of the earth but continue,” I had to interrupt because whenever she first hit me with that line I was sure it was a joke.
“ I’ve never had a boyfriend before so i’ve never done the whole ‘ meet the family’ spiel” she explains and I nod before leaning over the car console to peck her forehead. I step out of the car, adjust my simple outfit of Nike sweats
and a tshirt and walk over to her side of the car to help her out. She looks stunning as per usual in a tshirt dress. Her hair, now a dirty blonde, set in these big waves that frame her cute little face.
“ Always the gentleman” she admonishes before kissing me sweetly on the lips. I take the opportunity to dip her and we’re making out for a good couple of minutes before Jeremy Bieber shouts,
“ Attaboy!” Causing Rhiannon to push away from me and stand up straight to fix her slightly mused clothing.
Rhiannon, Stratford, 2013
I’ve hit it off with everyone in Justin’s family except for Jazmyn. Pattie made dinner and I had offered to help her when Justin and Jeremy insisted that there was a hockey game on that could not be missed. I’m drying a plate when I get the feeling that I’m being watched. I look up from my duty and see Jazmyn, glaring at me with an impressive amount of hate for a girl so small. She continues to glare and I swear I see her lips curl up into a snarl.
“I feel like I know you Rhiannon, Justin calls me everyday and talks about you so much that I call our talks the ‘ guess what Rhiannon did today show’” I blush and hand her a cleaned dish.
“Justin’s told me everything about you as well, you’re even kinder and sweeter than he mentioned” she bumps me with her hip and I bump back before making the decision that she and I would be close. I look back at Jazmyn who is still glaring at me but this time she’s joined by her brother Jaxon who stares at me with a dopey expression. I turn back to the sink and whisper to Pattie,
“ I don’t think that Jazmyn likes me too much” and to this Pattie giggles and looks back at the children.
“She’s jealous” Pattie says simply and I sneak a peek at the blonde headed child. When I make a look of confusion Pattie turns around and calls her attention “Jazzy. Come over here and help us dear” she says sweetly and the little girl hops off of the barstool and stomps over to us.
“Now,” Patties says moving Jazmyn so she’s in between the both of us her glare more intense and a little scary as she looks up at me.
“Would you like to tell me why you’ve been looking at Rhiannon like she eats Teletubbies?” Jazmyn’s eyes widen and I am quick to assure her that, no, I do not eat Teletubbies. Jazmyn doesn’t answer so Pattie asks another question,
“ Jazzy, is it nice to look at people in a mean way?” She probes and Jazmyn bows her tiny head
“ no Ms.Pat Pat”’ she says ashamedly and I do a puckered frown at how cute she is.
“You know Jazmyn, Justin told me that you like the color pink like, a lot is that true?” I ask her bending down to her level and noticing that she has the same soulful brown eyes as her older brother. She promptly sticks a thumb in her mouth and continues to stare.
“Babies suck their thumbs Jazzy. You aren’t a baby are you?” Pattie goads and the conflict that happens in her eyes is pretty comical. The thumb is removed and she answers me,
“pink is my favorite color I like purple, like Jussie, but I like pink way more” she explains and I can feel the tension between the two of us melt away.
“Pink is my favorite color too, in fact a few months ago I had pink hair” her jaw drops and I fish around in my pocket for my phone and pull up a picture to show her. She examines the picture to make sure I’m not a phony and then looks at me again.
“You’re pretty Rhinnninon” she says stumbling over my name and I tug on a little blonde curl that’s fallen onto her forehead
“you’re pretty too Jazmyn” I say truthfully and I’m once again mulling over how gorgeous all of the Bieber’s are, including Pattie of course.
“Do you want to see my room?” Jazmyn asks and I nod and look at Pattie who throws a wink.
“Go ahead sweetheart I can handle the dishes” Jazmyn takes my hand and leads me up the stairs to a room that is covered in all things pink.
“Jussie bought me this guitar and I can play it really good” she says demonstrating a few chords that sound surprisingly wonderful and I begin to think that music just runs in tis family’s blood.
“Do you like to play guitar Rhinnninon?” She asks my name giving her a pretty hard time.
“I love to play guitar Jazmyn” I tell her and she sits next to me on her castle shaped bed.
“You can call me Jazzy,” she says matter o factly and I smile at her and rejoice in the fact that she doesn’t hate me anymore,
“and you can call me Nonnie” she claps excitedly and hands me her little Daisy Rock guitar. It’s dusted in pink Swavorski crystals and it’s pretty weighty. I play her a few of my songs and when I start to play Justin’s ‘One Time’ she squeals and giggles.
“Look at my girls” Justin says from the doorway Jaxon on his hip I flash them both a smile and he walks into the room.
“I love Nonnie Jussie! I love her! Do you love her?” My heart speeds up and I look at Justin as he sets Jaxon onto the floor. We’d never said the ‘L’ word to each other and I was just as curious as Jazzy.
“I love her very much” Justin says his eyes never leaving mine and I can’t stop the idiotic grin that takes over my face.
“Nonnie do you love Jussie too?” Jazzy prys and Justin mocks me with a raised eyebrow and crossed arms,
“yeah Nonnie, do you love Jussie?” He mimics and I look at Jazzy before answering,
“I love him alot” Jazzy claps and reaches for the guitar
“aw man,” Jaxon says quietly his eyes set in a glare as he looks at his brother Justin bends down and pushes the fringe out of his brother’s eyes,
“what’s wrong bud?” Justin asks and Jaxon looks at me with reddened cheeks
“I want Rhiannon to be my girlfriend” he admits and my jaw drops at how freaking cute he’s being.
“Aw bud… Rhiannon is my girlfriend but-” I interrupt Justin and walk over to pick up Jaxon and wrap him in a tight hug.
“I’ll be your girlfriend Jax!” He giggles in delight and wraps his arms around my neck Justin pouts
“Stealing my woman at a young age there Jax” Jaxon grips me tighter and I can’t help the laugh that bubbles in my throat.
Justin, Stratford, 2013
Mom had left to go to her house and my dad was letting Rhiannon and I crash in one of the guest rooms. She had just gotten out of the shower and her hair lay in wet, stringy curls around her shoulders.
“I can’t believe that you dumped me for my brother,” I tell her jokingly as she hops onto the bed and straddles my waist.
“Sorry but he’s the cuter Bieber what was I supposed to do?” I pretend to look completely offended but her lips ruin my plan.
“Mmmm. I love you” I mumble against her lips and she smiles and buries her face into my neck before taking a deep breath.
“I love you too” she says happily and before long the flight, our drive, and a day with the kids catches up with her and she’s fast asleep in my arms. I pull out my phone and open up the ‘notes’ app and title a blank memo ‘Journals’ beneath it I write ‘All that Matters’ and with a look at Rhiannon I begin to write.
