also this was right after she said she recognized me

Watching a Stranger Watch a Movie - Tom Holland x Fem(Reader)

Summary: Tom Holland goes to the movie theater to surprise people seeing his movie. He goes to sit in the back of a theater, to be recognized by a beautiful stranger.

Warnings: Spoilers. Curse words. Nothing else I don’t think…besides aN ADORABLE TOM HOLLAND


Tom pulled the hood over his head and glanced around with a small smile at the mildly crowded theater.

He was exited. Surprising fans and making people happy was the best part about his job.

Slowly making his way up the rows of seats, he shoved his popcorn under his arm so her could make his way around a girl who sat alone, staring in anticipation and excitement at the screen.

But as if in slow motion, his popcorn slid through his arm and sprayed all over the poor girl.

She gasped softly, and Tom froze, and quickly rushed out a “Oh my gosh I’m so sorry, I’m a bloody idiot.”

She awkwardly brushed the popcorn spewed all over as well as she could off of her (Your skin color) skin. Then she glanced up at a guilty Tom Holland, whose hood has slid off of his head.

Her eyes widened for a moment, but then she shook her head and stared at the ground for a moment before looking back at Tom and answering with a melodic “You’re fine. Accidents happen.”

Toms eyebrow raised slightly as he stared at the girl who he guessed knew who he was.

“Do you-Do you know-?” Tom questioned her carefully.

“Yes I know who you are.” The girl replied softly.


“Huh?” The girl laughed. “What does that mean?”

“You just-reacted strangely.”

People were giving Tom weird looks for standing for so long without taking a seat, so he asked the girl if he could sit down. She paused before nodding her head.

“What do you mean? ‘Reacted Strangely’?” The girl resumed their conversation.

“Well most people who recognize me scream or-or I don’t know. They freak out. Usually.” Tom stuttered.

“Well should I scream to the heavens and alert everyone to the superstar in the room?” She raised her eyebrow.

“Um no. Please do not do that.”

“Exactly. I figured you had that hood up for a reason. By the way, might want to put that back up.”

“Uh-Right.” Tom slid the hold back up. “Also, thanks for not freaking out. I’m trying to surprise the theater after the movie.”

“That’s pretty cool.” She said simply, sucking on the straw of her drink.

“So what’s your name?”

“Y/N L/N.” She replied, and Tom found himself smiling at the her, for he liked the name. “Also, um, it’s really really nice to meet you.”

“Nice to meet you to.” Tom grinned.

“I’m exited for the movie. I’ve loved Spiderman since I was a kid.” She smiled, soaking in her own nostalgia. She brushed a strand of Y/H/C hair out of her face.

“Really? Same here.” And she giggled.

“I didn’t notice.” She said sarcastically, and her smile was beautiful as she smiled at him. “But yeah. One year I managed to convince my mom to let me dress up as Spiderman. Even though it was a 'boys outfit’ or whatever the hell that means.”

Tom laughed at her sarcastic and kinda badass vibe. It was attractive.

The screen dimmed and Y/N sat up excitedly in her seat, eyes wide and animated. But Toms eyes still laid on her. Which actually confused him, because no one had ever enchanted him quite like she had.

The movie went underway and Tom found himself looking at her over and over again. She was beautiful. She was dressed simply, and she didn’t have any heavy makeup on, but her aura attracted him in a way that he was unfamiliar to.

“Do you want some?” She asked Tom, offering her small popcorn.

“Thanks.” He chuckled, still guilty about his popcorn spill.

“No problem. I figured you need to have that nice angelic popcorn breath when you meet everyone.” She replied slyly.

“Very funny.” Tom said jokingly.

They continued to watch the movie, and her hands started to shake as Peter parker screamed the famous “C'mon Spiderman.”

Tom stared at her as her eyes widened at the boy caught under the rubble on the screen. She seemed truly worried for Peter, and she licked her lips as the superhero dug himself out of the rubble and his pain.

She reached her hand at the same time as Tom and in the most cliche way possible they bumped hands. She quickly pulled her hand out and shyly put her hands on her lap. Tom smiled at her adorableness.

The movie came to a close, and she let out a huge breath.

“Wow.” She said.

“Did you like it?” Tom asked.

“Wow!” She repeated. “That was amazing! Your acting and you accent was beautifully put into action. The whole story was so engaging and I felt true worry for you-for Peter.”

“Thank you.” Tom beamed.

They both stared at each other. Unspoken things passing between them. Their shared but short experience of the movie theater feeling so long.

“You uh probably need to get going to meet all those people. I’m sorry for holding you back.” She broke the silence.

Y/N stood up and grabbed her purse and looked around stalling for time as she clenched her hands on her sweater.

“Hey-you know what?” Tom announced. “Can I give you my number?”

“Y-Yes!” She grinned and Tom did the same in reply as her beautiful face lit up.

“Great. Because I really liked talking to you. Well we didn’t really talk, but I feel like if we talk more, I’d really enjoy your company-” He rambled. But then shut up and gave her the number awkwardly.

“I really hope I see you again.” Y/N said bashfully.

“Same here.” Tom said, and turned around to go surprise the crowd, but paused before turning and saying “Nice meeting you Y/N.”


A/N Hope you all enjoyed!

New Info

Hello everyone! A week or so ago I received a message here on Tumblr from a person who claimed to know information about a certain model and her involvement in bearding/secret gay relationships. After exchanging some emails, this person shared all of their information with me but asked that I used code names so that no one gets in trouble (as they believe much of this could be traced back to them or others mentioned). If you have any questions about code names please feel free to message me privately and I will be happy to share a little more with those who ask nicely. I would just like to be respectful of this person’s wishes.

This info concerns a model we all know (Model 1) and her past relationship with another model we all know even better (Model 2). It was requested that I simply copy and paste the information in full. The person who sent me the info didn’t disclose their identity so I’m unsure how trustworthy they are. However, my impression was that the info wasn’t outrageous enough to change anything we don’t already know so I am leaning towards trusting this person. It is up to you to make up your own mind. 

“You must know something about me:  i have a very very good & detailed memory (since i was a child) i always remember what people don’t, + very specific dates & conversations + the little things.My doctor says that it’s certainly unusual but it does not completely fit as idetic memory per say (i’m considered smart+ but not a genius).I tell you this because it’s very important in this story, it will help you understand why i remember so many details and things :) (even though i had to check a few things up with my 2 friends before writing this to you, just to be 100% sure)

Before i tell you this story, i want to make something very clear: i do not know Model 2, i’ve never met her.i’ve met Model 1 only once, in early 2013 in Paris, it was before she started to “date” that Famous Actor.
Both girls are not from my “models generation” (i’m 38, French, i worked as a model from 96 to 2000, no big covers but some very high profile fashion shows in haute couture & prêt-à-porter in Paris & Milan), it was still the golden age, with all of the worldwide famous supermodels around).
Anyway, this is important because of someone i have worked with a few times back in the day, who now is a well known Actress (& a good one), we are not friends, we haven’t seen each other in a few years, but we still have 2 good mutual and trustworthy friends: i’ll explain later).
i won’t give you photographs of our past works together, even if i quit modeling a long time ago, i don’t want to be identified, i hope you’ll understand.On the other hand, i’m pretty sure if some specific people read this story, eventually they’ll find out who my 2 friends are (but they’re both ok with this, they don’t really care).
Ok, so my good friend is under 35, also French, she recently retired as a model, she was never famous but she has had a few high profile campaign in Europe, but was never a VS model.(i don’t want to give more details about her).
She’s bi, (i’m a lesbian by the way), and we’re both the lipstick kind.
The only female model she’s dated was Model 1, it didn’t last (just for a few weeks), it was a rebound, for both of them.She introduced her to me in Paris in early 2013. we had diner together (with a few other people).i didn’t know who she was, i remember thinking “her face looks familiar” i thought she was gorgeous, natural, surprising not too shallow, nice & kind of shy.During diner my friend mentioned that Model 1 was walking for Victoria’s Secret, and it hit me “of course, ok now i know where i saw you before, got it”
Before meeting with her, my friend had told me on the phone, that Model 1 had recently ended a long & complicated relationship with another model, Basically, the break up was mutual but they remained good friends.My friend didn’t name the other model or said anything specific about her (but it was a “her” for sure).i remember asking her “are you ok with her still being so close to her ex ? ” she answered: “i don’t care, after what she said about their relationship, it’s ok”
Anyway, a couple of weeks after that diner, my friend called and said it was was never serious, just a fling, so no big deal.
A few months later, i was checking a french tabloid magazine at my doctor’s office, and saw this article about that Famous Actor’s apparently new girlfriend and i clearly recognized Model1.I called my friend right after, i remember asking her: “ what the hell ?? that’s Model 1 with Famous Actor, right ? she said "yes, i saw the pics yesterday too, a bit of a shock to be honest, Z & Y (2 friends who were with us at that diner) also called about it” i asked: “so she’s bi ? sounds weird to me”(after the diner i was pretty sure she wasn’t bi, but maybe i had understood it wrong, you never know (and to be honest my female gaydar is not always perfect ;)she had a little laugh: “you’re kidding ?? she’s as straight as jodie foster” (her exact words, i swear, it made me laugh)“ok, so….. bearding contract ?” i askedshe answered: “looks like it to me,i think there’s no way she’d sleep with a guy, even for publicity”
i have to explain that beardings contracts were already very much known & used during “my time”, it was also a good boost for a model’s career…So it didn’t shock me when she agreed it was highly probably that, and it didn’t shock me about Famous Actor either: there were already very big rumors about him back when i was modeling, so…
part 2:Some time ago, we talked about it again (we were with a longtime friend of ours: (let’s call him B), who is a quite well known in Paris, he works on many fashion week shows, he’s gay and super cute (he dated a famous Male Singer in the late 90s/ it still makes us laugh because back then, we’d tell our friends that the Famous Singer was gay, but no one’d believe us !! (who’s laughing now ;)
All of a sudden, B asked my friend if she was still in contact with Model 1, she said “no"we both asked him :"why? have you seen her recently, how’s she doing ?"he said "oh, yes, i worked with her a few months ago; she’s doing fine” and that was it…it was strange because he always has something else to say about people (whether it’s nice, bad or funny, always an anecdote,especially with famous people in the fashion industry)
We both asked him “and ?? that’s it ?? does she have a new boyfriend ? (winking at him)he laughed, and he hesitated, and after a few seconds said: "well, let me tell you something ladies, between us, she must have been asked to shut up recently”
My friend & i asked him what he was talking about, B said “well, last time i worked with her, i asked her how things were going between her & her friend, because of what she had said at X’s birthday diner party (i won’t use the real initials for privacy) we were both at, the year before” he continued: “because she had been acting strangely that night & talking about some stuff"he said: "her reaction was very weird, she tried to convince me that she was sick & because she had had a few drinks that evening, her medication had made her say crazy things that weren’t real”
i told him “well maybe it was about Famous Actor ? did she reveal stuff about the beard thing” (it made sense to me) & my friend agreed.he replied with a little smile: “oh no no, she wasn’t talking about Famous Actor that evening”…
To explain:
A bit more than a year earlier (which is about 2 & a half years ago), they were both at X’s birthday diner party in Paris (a french designer, not very famous to people outside the industry, but quite known, also someone my friend and i had worked with in the past: + our friend (B) is good friends with)he said: “ At some point in the evening, she was clearly tipsy & was chatty in a weird way about someone"i told him "so what ? Did she say mean stuff about someone ?"he said "no, more like she wanted to talk about something, without directly talking about it, because she couldn’t or somethnig like that”.My friend and i looked at each other, with the “what?” look on our faces “what are you talking about ? we don’t understand”
He added: “at the end of this diner party, just a few of us stayed (that’s where the former model well known Actress comes back), he said "M was there by the way (the actress, i won’t use her real initials either), (he mentioned her to us, because he knows i like her and that i have worked with her a few times back in the day)
Apparently there were 7-8 people, a few of them (including the Actress) were on their phones while chatting, and started to make comments about Famous Actor’s new "girlfriend”…Model 1 had left the party earlier (i must precise).
He continues: “ We were talking about how f***ing pathetic & crazy the whole bearding situation had become, we couldn’t believe that after all this time,tabloids were still selling that shit to the public…”,  M said “yep,but a straight relationship sells more & studios would lose a lot of money if people knew about some very closeted stars…the more famous,the higher is the risk for them to lose their career over it”…“but it brings good paychecks to a few models, so.. you know , win-win”
He continued: “someone added (another person): "yep, look at Model 1, it works for her"M said "i know right ?” then he said M added “and what was wrong with her tonight ?”, the other person answered “apparently she knows stuff and she’s struggling not to talk about it, because it’s huge”..that person continues “i tried to make her talk,but it didn’t work, then she left”
Then B said to my friend & i : “Most of all thought that night that it was about another famous closeted actor she knew about, but i found out a few weeks later that it was in fact about a very famous closeted singer she has direct connexion with”
we said “are you sure ?? for real ??"he confirmed it, but he didn’t say male or female though.we asked him a few times, we really begged him to tell us..
but he just said "no ladies, not this time, this is way too hush hush for now, i’ll tell you in a few years, if it’s not out yet..ok ?”
That’s the end of my story.
The reason why i talk about it only now: i didn’t really give it much thought after that conversation, not knowing who that was anyway (or not knowing about the connexion), it wouldn’t change my life, i like gossip like anyone, but i’m not the detective type, i didn’t really care to be honest; i just felt bad for that person and for Famous Actor for being closeted, wondering if they were really happy that way.+ i had to take care of other things in my life, that were way more important..
BUT, a few weeks ago, the 14 years old daughter of a friend of mine and her best friend were having a loud argument in the next room, while we were having diner.My friend’s wife asked the girls what the problem was : the friend said “she thinks the kaylors are right and i think she’s an idiot to believe it"We laughed because none of us had any idea what they were talking about, then my friend’s daughter explained briefly the "kaylor thing” to us….i laughed but i was intrigued (my gay curiosity was picked i guess), so after diner, i asked her to show me the proofs she had..She showed me a bunch of stuff on tumblr, including the detailed time line while explaining things to me at the same time, she showed me a few interviews and videos…she was very excited.i’ll admitt i was intrigued.To be honest i vaguely remembered Model 2 from her VS years, but nothing more, and i didn’t know much about Female Singer (except for her many boyfriends reputation, her 2-3 big hit songs and her few cat videos on IG that i find funny (loving cats as well), and i definitely didn’t know about the gay or beard rumors.
But when she also showed me the various elements about Model 1 & Model 2 , within 10 minutes pieces of the puzzle started to fit together, and i thought about meeting Model 1 that evening, and of course about everything my 2 friends had said….i asked her to show me about the time line, to see it the dates could fit, and they did, + she also showed me the little saab video of them together, and my gaydar really buzzed (i showed it to my girlfriend, and her gaydar also buzzed)i was mind blown, i couldn’t believe it, i laughed, thinking “holy shit, if the other thing’s real too, now i get it why he didn’t tell us”.
i didn’t say anything to my friend’s daughter though….i told her i believed there were indeed very interesting elements, but that she couldn’t be sure until it was confirmed (i know i feel bad, but what was i supposed to tell her ??)
The day after, i called my friend,and asked her if Model 1’s ex back then was Model 2…she said she didn’t want to talk about it, that it was the past, and that she didn’t care about that anymore…i didn’t insist, but the way she said it, i’m pretty sure (knowing her for so long) that it was her way to somehow confirm it…
As a conclusion, i do believe that you Kaylors are probably right,(knowing Model 1 & Model 2’s “close friendship” was right, why not the rest ?) but i have no direct proof that Model 2 & Female Singer are actually dating.
All i know is things that can not be proven directly unless my friends & i are called in to testify.i hope i won’t get sued over this :(
Anyway, i wanted to share this with you because after all the hard work and research some of you apprently did, i felt that at least you deserved to know what i know :) “

As the person mentioned at the end, they were really quite impressed with us and the amount of diligent research on Kaylor and other fake relationships we have collectively gathered.  Again, feel free to message me with any questions and take this all with a grain of salt for now. I am only a vessel for the info this person was willing to share.

Read the Open Letter to the CEO of Yelp thing. Also, the reactions to it.

It’s hilarious to me, how this now works.

“You should’ve expected to be fired for this.” Yeah. She did. But after months of starving herself and recognizing she will never claw her way out of this hole, she at least wants to say something. Of course, low wage employees should be silent and grateful for their gruel, right? How dare they talk back or have emotions.

“You complained about the snacks!” Complained? No, she said that the snacks provided at work are literally her only meal, the only food she can afford outside a bowl of rice every day. The only way to interpret what she said as “complaining about the snacks,” is in the context of “I am complaining that all I can afford to eat are snacks and am slowly starving.”

“What did you expect, living in an expensive area like the Bay Area?”

Counter question: Why is this never asked to the employers? So lets actually humor these chucklefucks and say that Yelp, one of the most well known and used websites, literally cannot afford to pay their employees a living wage… because its the Bay Area.

Why are they located there, then? Why are they not located in a more reasonable location that frees them up to pay a living wage? They’re the ones who picked that location and you want to tell me they have zero responsibility in this? No sale.

I mean, sure, if they moved to a less fancy area, they’d have to give up some local conveniences and networking opportunities and some of their favorite eateries, but hey, you have to make sacrifices when your new to the working world. That’s what it takes to “live within your means,” right?

“More whiny, entitled Millennials.”

Uh huh. The world will be a marginally better place when people who sneer at “millennials” finally fucking die.

Power to Talia Jane, and fuck Yelp.

once more with feeling

He was the king of Cops and Robbers (although he would start decrying monarchical systems of government in about ten years or so). No one could escape his cunning strategies or run faster than him— at least, until the girls insisted that they wanted to join in the games, too. He soon found himself dethroned by none other than her. She was a black-haired blur on the playground, running after him on spry summer-brown legs, slipping from his grasp with strong teeth that didn’t hesitate to bite and sharp elbows that weren’t at all shy to dig into his ribs.

More often than not, they would end up wrestling in the grass, pulling at each other’s clothes in an age when those actions were still innocent. First grade for him was a haze of sun and sweat, her dark eyes flashing in gleeful defiance. Sometimes he was the cop and she was the robber, and sometimes it was the other way around, but they always ended up chasing each other, no matter what.
