JIMIN: hobbies that I do are billiards, bowling and playing computer games all together at a house with friends. when we play, it’s different who wins, but it’s certain that I do the worst no matter what
SUGA: when it’s vacation time, I try to do things that people say are ordinary (to do). It’s important to me to go to a cafe alone or meet up with friends or just a casual every day routine. because it’s a vacation, I think it’s important to spend it relaxing, rather than planning to do something special
V: I listen to several types of music, regardless of genre… classic, jazz, opera, R&B, hip hop, EDM. right now my favourite is especially Hisaishi Joe’s ‘Summer’. dadadadan~(starts to sing) I want to listen to piano performance live one day
JIN: because Jungkook said that he’s going to learn the drums in his free time on the world tour, I started to play guitar too. but since he can’t carry the drum set around with him on tour, in the end it was just me who kept practicing from bringing the guitar (laughs) I play our songs like spring day and butterfly. one day I want to show it on stage
JHOPE: recently, my hobby is collecting figurines. nowadays, things that i’ve been collecting is called “deck of skate boards”. since there are a lot of colourful designs, it’s nice just looking that them. sadly there’s no way to ride them outside
RM: the thing that I’m consumes with right now is learning Japanese. I’m watching the drama “late night restaurants” as it’s easy to understand the dialogue. getting in touch with nature is one thing that is a way of changing the mood. I go for a walk in a park that’s close by or if i have time I go far until I reach the sea.
JK: recently, I enjoy playing FPS games. I spend about 3~4 hours every day playing so time flies in that moment (laughs) and I always listen to music. I listen to exciting music like future bass but more than that I like melodies that make my mind become calm and the and the quietness of the quite sad atmosphere.
2. favourite fashion and things in fashion you always uphold
JIMIN: once I find a fashion that I think is good, I’ll buy clothes similar to that for several months. right now I like simple fashion, such as shirts with slacks and white shirts and denim (jeans?). since I haven’t decided what fashion to do this summer…. I think I should shop and and think carefully because once I start to buy things, I tend to buy a lot of it (laughs)
SUGA: rather than having a lot of different types of clothing, I rather have an attachment to things I like and use them for a long time. I think that after debut, I’ve worn thousands of clothing that are expensive that are my preference. since I want to be a person hat looks special even just wearing ordinary things, I choose to wear simple clothes. other than that, because I don’t like to show my skin, I wear long sleeves in the summer too
V: the item I wear most often is shirts. I have several shirts that go from simple to unusual print designs. I like the Boston bag too that I bought from New York in spring. I will use it carefully!
JIN: I like neat and simple fashion. when I go to places where a lot of people see me, I try to wear as many things that I received as gifts as possible. because I think if i were them, i’d feel really happy to see precious person wearing something that I gave to them
JHOPE: I try to do styles that express me well, that are not too easy going, and not too loud either. I plan to deliver a fashion that looks cool this summer. but I haven’t been shopping since I purchased a street brand fur jacket last winter…
RM: I pick clothes that are a good style whilst having a comfortable feeling. I didn’t have confidence in my style since I didnt dress well skinny but after debuting everyone told me that my legs are pretty and long, so I challenged it. the person out of the members that dresses well, if it’s not me (laughs), is JHOPE. he’s good at matching items.
JK: I like big shapes (silhouette) like parkas, and I like the colour black. I wear similar clothes in the summer too. the genre is different but I think that RM and JHOPE dress cool
3. favourite scents?
JIMIN: the scent of flowers and meat is cooking. because I like the smell of nature more, I don’t really wear perfumes well. I currently use the scent of a diffuser that’s refreshing. but J-HOPE who is my roommate, prefers scents like this more than me
SUGA: I like perfumes that have a sweet smell but I don’t use just one kind of perfume since I only wear it occasionally, depending on the mood of that day. I like to drink coffee, when I smell the scent of it my mind becomes relaxed. coffee is like a substitute for water to me.
V: in many cases I select a refreshing scent or a scent that I relax to. I use several types to match the mood or fashion
JIN: I use sweet perfumes that linger softly. if I were to give an example, the soft feeling is like the texture of candy floss. but the smell isn’t candy floss itself (laughs)
JHOPE: since i’m very sensitive to smells, it’s only natural that I spray perfume. before I got to bed, I use a diffuser all the time that’s in our room with the sweet smell of body lotion. from our vacation in hawaii in april, i bought kona coffee powder but i tried using it as quadrant substitute
RM: smell of natural fabric softener. and I spoke with jungkook, and the smell of Japan buildings (laughs) especially the airport. when we got here we all said together “we’ve arrived in Japan!”
JK: the smell of green or the wind when spring arrives. one day in spring, I listened to music and rode a bike down the river together with RM and V, so when the distinctive air of spring arrives I feel happy and excited because of that day
4. Japanese movies, dramas, manga etc that have stuck in your memory?
JIMIN: I have seen almost all well-known manga and anime. recently I bought the novel “between calmness and passion” at the bookstore. I look forward to reading it!
SUGA: The best manga throughout my life is slam dunk! I must’ve read it over a hundred times since I read my favourite ones repeatedly. when I was young, most of the things that I watched were Japanese anime
V: recently I’ve watched all of 'we married as a job’! I like the scene where the protagonist gives a hug to the other guy who she has a marriage contract with, on every Tuesday. I remember seeing the male actor in somewhere else, I was surprised to find out that he was Hoshino Gen, an artist that I listen to often on a average day. I love the song 'every day life’ the most. I’m also practicing the love dance from the ending of the drama
JIN: I like Japanese anime’s a lot so when I was a trainee I watched one piece or bleach every week. recently I’ve been obsessed with the manga about high school volleyball called haikyuu, so I read that often
JHOPE: I really like Otsaku Ai’s 'Sakuranbo’. I listen to YUI’s song often too.
RM: I listen yo AK-69 or KOHH, Sakamoto Ryuichi, Yuhki Kuramoto’s music. I like movies that are directed by Hirokazu Koreeda. I became captivated by his calm outlook on the world that he films. If his movies screen in korea, I will certainly go.
JK: I like Japanese anime’s, I’m currently watching the same one as Jin too, haikyuu. and it’s helping me learn Japanese too!
I was at the Walmart in my po-dunk Tennessee town, and I just happened to stumble across this:
And I was like, hey, cool, cause ya know, Sherlock. Then I flip it over and
this beautiful bastard. So, yeah I spent US $13.99 and bought it (I would have spent $20 tbh) But I didn’t crack it open until I got home and
March 8. Hmmm, I thought. Let me get my tin foil hat out.
20/20= 40? maybe I’m reaching…But then
Um 27? These numbers seem unnecessary to these sentences or am I
seeing things things that aren’t there… [pictured above: ACD posing for “spirit photography” in 1922]
Then an article about ACD and his unlikely friendship with Houdini. They met when Doyle read his book, then went and saw him perform in New York where he made an ELEPHANT disappear, and ESCAPED FROM CHAINS UNDERWATER.
*cough cough* Mark and Darren Brown *cough cough*
So anyway, I may just have a blue car and then am seeing blue cars everywhere, or this magazine (which the earliest date I can see where it hit the stands was feb 8, 2017). New key? BONUS:
meta meta meta meta meta canon that ACD was King of All Meta. This magazine has condensed so much SH fun facts (a whole big piece about about ACD killing off SH) and it makes me happy to have more info I can obsess about.
You said your house was haunted by "parakeets and Amish Satan" EXPLAIN
…I don’t remember posting about that on here omfg how deep in my personal tag are you? 😂 Those are two different stories so this is probably gonna be long.
Alright, so I was always that freaky little ‘I see dead people’ shithead when I was a kid. You know, that asshole kid that gives detailed descriptions of relatives that died before they were born and says they see them on the ceiling or some shit? That was me. Important to the stories. I’ll start with the parakeets.
Okay, so when I was like…Maybe 5 or 6, I really wanted to get a pet. We had a dog, but I was not the dog’s favorite person, and I was in that whole ‘I wanna prove I’m responsible’ stage of childhood, so I ambushed my parents with the pet question when we were out to dinner. (Which was a strategic move, as I knew all the waiters at the restaurant liked me and would maybe throw in a pity “Aww, get the girl a pet” comment as a guilt trip if they over heard the conversation. It totally worked lmao)
So, after a long debate about animals, my parents decided to get me parakeets. Which, I had not been aiming for (I wanted something cuddly, and I like birds in theory, not in practice) but I was not in a position for arguing when I was about to get a pet, so I agreed and we headed off to PetSmart and got two birds.
Now, over the course of my childhood, I only had three birds- Blueberry, Banana, and Snowcap. You can probably figure out what they looked like, I was not the most creative child. So, in our old house, which was, frankly, a better house, they had a great life! We kept them in the living room, right next to the huge glass doors that lead to the backyard so they got a lot of sunlight and fresh air, we were great about cleaning up their feathers, they didn’t feel attention starved so they weren’t too loud or annoying. It was great.
Then we moved to our current house, and that’s where it starts getting complicated.
See, my mom and I were both on a depression battle, and if you know anything about that, it made it very hard for us to do things. Energy wasn’t there. So while we were obviously still feeding the birds and everything, we definitely let the cage get messy and stopped cleaning up feathers. We had them on the bay window in my living room, so it looked like a mess, which really pissed my Aunt Gail off. Gail was a psycho bitch, for reference, but she had moved in with us to help pay bills and insisted the birds were taken out of the living room, which I wasn’t really down with, but I also wasn’t down with her locking me in a closet, so I listened to her. So Blueberry and Snowcap got banished to the computer room, where there was very little light, always loud music playing, and barely any attention for them. I remember they’d get so loud and we’d just throw a sheet over the cage or turn the lights off or yell for them to shut up. As it stands now, I realize we definitely ended up mistreating the birds, and I feel incredibly guilty about that, but as a little kid with very little patience and a fear of birds, who was mostly following her mother and aunt’s actions, I didn’t understand. I got pretty detached from them because of where I was mentally, and I remember when they both died (separately- Blueberry held on for a while, so she was sadly alone for a while), I like, forced all emotion about it away and just didn’t focus on it. Do you know what I mean? I was pretending like I wasn’t effected, like it was a non-issue, and like tbh I didn’t even let myself focus on how effed up that is until a couple years ago. But that was just the headspace I was in.
Okay, so anyway, birds: I always hear them outside my window during the day, chirping up a storm, but at night? It’s usually dead silent, with the occasional hoot from an owl who’s literally only there to make me think about the movie “The Fourth Kind” in the middle of the night. Fuck that owl, I don’t want to think about that movie.
Sometimes, though, when I’m having an Insomniac Episode ™ , I’ll be in the computer room (there’s no wifi in my house, we’re still in the 90′s) late at night, messing around, and for a short amount of time I’ll hear birds, like, screeching. And I never really thought much about it, because like, nature can do whatever it wants, but it started getting a little odd. Like, I’d leave the computer room to go downstairs for a bit, and I’d hear absolutely nothing. Dead silence, even though the kitchen is directly below it and thus has the same trees, or even if I leave the door open, it’s just quiet. But the second I step off the step and into the room, it starts back up. Weird, right? I started feeling really eerie about it, and started purposefully leaving the computer room whenever it started up.
And then, that lead me to noticing when it started up…It was always at 3:00am to 4:00 am. Which is, you know, The Witching Hour. The Ghost Hour. The Demon Hour. Plenty of names, but all the same concept. Any self-respecting paranormal fucker knows that things get weird at 3:00 am. The veil’s a little thinner then.
And that in itself freaked me out, but I always feel pretty freaked out at that time anyway, because as mentioned, I’m That Asshole Kid who hears disembodied voices and sees things out of the corner of my eye and always feels like something is right behind me. That’s only gotten better and worse with age in different ways- but anyway, while the bird stuff was freaking me out, I had yet to put together what it was, because frankly I’m just a wimp and I thought it was overall anxiety making me hear things.
So then, a little under a year ago, I’m watching some show about the paranormal and animals, and some dude is recounting a story about a ghost cat or something, and I remember being like…what the fuck, animals can be ghosts? What? Because that’s not something that ever occurred to me before, and not something I had heard of. And the guy went on to say something like if the animals were mistreated in life, they have as much chance to come back as a person-ghost who died tragically or something. And I just like, had a flash, of realizing how we had definitely mistreated the birds, and how I only hear screaming birds in their room, at 3:00 am, and it was just sort of an “everything clicked together moment”, and I was like, shit. I’m being haunted by my old pet parakeets.
I still hear them all the time, but I mean, I’m not turning out lights or telling them to shut up anymore, because honestly? They definitely have a reason to complain and make their voices heard over that. Like, if they need to let out frustration from beyond the grave, they definitely have my attention.
Okay, on to Amish Satan.
So in…Fifth grade, my class took a field trip to Lancaster, to tour some old coal mines and see some donkeys and stuff. It was nothing special, honestly, but it was a fun trip. So anyway, they had a little gift shop the let us go into because what’s a field trip without souvenirs? And they were mostly selling coal related stuff- I’ve got a little statue of a mouse made out of coal on my nightstand that I got there. But they were also selling these little Amish dolls, right? So as a young girl with a great love for dolls (I used to have a huge collection of all kinds), obviously I had to get one.
So I picked out a guy doll because I loved the shade of blue they used for his shirt, he had little black suspenders and a black hat, it was cute. Paid the store owner, got on the bus with my new little friend to head home.
(Completely unrelated to the story, but back then I was anime trash and decided to name this poor thing Kiyo after the main character from Zatch Bell lmao)
So anyway, on the bus home, I started getting slightly…unsettled by the fact he didn’t have a face. Like, it didn’t bother me when I bought him, but now it was starting to really freak me out. I kept asking the teachers why Amish dolls didn’t have faces, but no one had answers for me, which was frustrating, because I thought if I could understand the reasoning, it wouldn’t freak me out as much.
I was starting to regret buying it, but when we got back to school, my friend Rachel whipped out a sharpie and said “It’s yours anyway, just give him a face yourself!” which sounded like a relatively good idea. I drew the least intimidating face I could- two simple big eyes, point for a nose, big goofy smile with his tongue sticking out. It’s cute and dumb. Seriously, I still have the doll, you don’t look at this thing and think “Satan” at all.
So, me and my friends played with this doll all the time. We’d use to make him do tricks and flip him around and stuff- I remember one year we accidentally got him stuck on the Christmas tree and left him up there with all the decorations because we thought it was the funniest thing ever. This was like our go-to doll. We loved the thing. And sure, I’d have a weird experience every now and then, but I had absolutely no reason to think it was connected to the doll, because the things weren’t that out-of-ordinary for me.
So, in sixth grade, I had to start going to this free children’s hospital in the city called Shriners, and there were always a lot of Amish people there, because it was free and they have higher risks for birth defects and problems. And I was a super shy child, but at the same time I didn’t want to sit quietly in a waiting room for a millions years, so I’d usually quietly bond with a kid over some of the toys the waiting room had out, or if I was just reading I’d still make a point to smile politely at everyone I made eye contact with. The adults always seemed suspicious of me, but I figured it was just a whole ‘Amish vs The English’ thing, or because my health problems were a lot less physically obvious than their children’s and they were upset about that. It made me feel uncomfortable, but it was nothing serious.
Except one day, I was making small talk with one family and the little girl had a doll out, and I just said something like “Oh I have one of those dolls! It has a face on it though.” And her mother got all wide eyed and dragged her kids to the other side of the room while talking in their language (I don’t know the name of it) and I was just like???? Oh shit what did I do??? Like it was strange omg.
So anyway, time goes on. I get older, I stop playing with dolls, and actually end up selling or trashing most of them. I kept the Amish doll around though, but it wasn’t like me and my friends were playing with him every day anymore. He was just there. Something inside of me couldn’t bear to get rid of him, but I wasn’t doing anything with him either.
And after a while, it started to feel weird. Like…uncomfortable. Sort of a ‘why don’t you play with me anymore’ vibe, which sounded so stupid, because I was in high school at this point, I could not justify thinking an old toy was sad. This isn’t fucking Toy Story, you know? (Incidentally, while I love the Toy Story films, they’re also lowkey my worst nightmares).
I remember edging around him. Like, he still has the same dumb, cutesy face drawn on, but something was making me uncomfortable to be around him. I felt watched and guilty and nervous. At some point he ended up on the staircase leading to my computer room, just laying there for a couple years. Neither me or my mom ever bothered to touch him.
Okay, so then I go away for my only semester of college, and one day I was in the group chat with my friends and we were talking about creepy things that have happened to us. And I brought up this doll, and they were kinda interested and I remember saying “Watch me come home for break and he’s not gonna be wear I left him” as a joke.
I get home from break…Guess who’s not fucking on the steps like he’d been for the past 3 years?
I was cracking up, I remember texting my friend Zoe who started freaking out, but I was like “Okay, creepy coincidence, but obviously my mom must’ve just moved him or thrown him out”.
…Except my mom had no idea what I was talking about. She had no memory of this doll, let alone walking past it all the time for three years while it sat on the steps. She swore she didn’t move it.
So I was like…okay,
So then I’m back home officially and I still can’t find it. I searched everywhere- not even because I wanted the doll, just because not knowing where it was was making me feel even more nervous and anxious than having to tip-toe around it. I had random scary thoughts pop up in my head of it appearing in my room suddenly, or moving on it’s own. I was really freaking myself out- being paranoid is what I’m best at.
Okay, at some point down the line, one day I’m on my couch just flicking through channels, and I come across a marathon of a show called “Amish Haunting” (Honestly, check it out if you like ghost shows, it’s pretty cool). The episode that happens to be playing is feature a segment called “The Faceless Doll” and the paranormal experience that family had when an English neighbor gave their young daughter a doll with a face. Shit got fucked up for this family. Real shit guys.
They explained within the episode that the reason for faceless dolls is because the Amish believe that fake faces- like on dolls, in photographs, what have you- are an invitation for the Devil into your home. They believe he can use the fake eyes to see into your life and watch you and grow stronger and mess you up, basically. So, when 10 year old Molly drew that face on, not only was she accidentally disrespecting the Amish’s beliefs, she was basically unwittingly inviting Satan into her house, and then using him as a best play mate with her two other Catholic School Girl friends. Iconic.
I have since found the doll- mind you, in a place where he literally never should have been- but things seem…Calmer? I do occasionally feel a little watched, but honestly I feel like now that I’m aware my doll is potentially housing Satan, we’re on better terms? Allegedly a couple of my friends have had weird experiences after insulting him, but I wasn’t around so I can’t confirm or deny. Like, I definitely still get creeped out by him, but not as much, and I don’t feel a weird sad aura around the doll anymore.
So, now I’m just kinda hoping we stay on these chill mutual grounds and I don’t, like, get possessed or anything. But yeah, that’s the story of Amish Satan, you just gotta be a little respectful with him.
Gotta love when everything you have on is bought from fags. Nike shoes (for you fags to clean) , new Northface jacket i got today, new jeans i didnt pay for, Calvin Kleins, Dom watch, and oakley hat haha. This is the type of shit that makes me happy. Keep it coming fags! Haha
Watch this episode of Barstool’s “The Life” before reading. It’ll help you understand the imagine much better :)
scrambled around my new 7,000 square foot house trying to get rid of any moving
boxes, and any signs of actual living. I had bought a new home in Dallas a few
months ago, but still wasn’t completely settled. And today, of all days, was my
second “The Life” house tour with Barstool Sports, and the infamous Sophie
Julia. When she and her cameraman came to my last house, she flirted with me
relentlessly throughout the entire tour. I shut her down as much as humanly
possible, and I can barely watch the entire episode back without cringing.
finished “cleaning” the house, I threw on a t-shirt, black workout shorts, and
a camouflage hat, backwards. I groaned as I saw Sophie walk up the driveway,
and hid myself in the kitchen so she couldn’t see me as she was on her way to
the front door.
guys! How are you?” I asked with a fake smile as I opened the door.
Long time no see!” Sophia said in her high pitched, valley girl voice as she
pulled me in for a hug. “Why didn’t you ever follow me back on Instagram?” She
questioned as she pulled away.
Because I have a girlfriend now,
and I also don’t really like you. I thought in my head.
follow me? Sorry I didn’t even see it.” I lied.
we’ll film our intro outside and then we’ll get started, if that’s alright.”
The cameraman said.
thing. Didn’t catch your name?” I asked, extending my right hand.
He said with a nod.
Okay, just come on back in when you’re ready to get started.” I said with a
as the front door shut, I took my phone out of my pocket and called the only
girl I wanted in my house.
She whispered into the phone.
Are you still in class?” I asked.
were having mock court today. I already litigated but some of my classmates are
finishing up right now. I’ll be over there soon. Are they there yet?” She
they are filming outside right now. Please get here soon!” I begged.
babe I’ll be there soon! I promise.”
you.” I smiled into the phone.
you, too.” She whispered, and hung up.
Sophie was going to hate her.
clockwork, when I pressed the red circle on my phone, Sophia and Mike barged
are just going to ring the doorbell and I’ll start filming, and we’ll go from
there.” Mike said, stepping back out onto the brick stoop near the front door.
and shut the door, not keen on the whole “acting” bit. They rang the doorbell
and the camera was rolling, so we went through the whole “hey how are you”
thing once more.
this place is beautiful! So, when did you move in?” Sophia questioned as she
walked through my foyer, peering at the rooms surrounding it.
four months ago. Just needed something a little bigger from my last home.” I
of getting more dogs?” She asked, running her hand down my arm.
No, I’m thinking of marrying my
girlfriend and having kids. Stop touching me. I thought in my head.
tattoo’s?” She asked, still grabbing at my arm. Her fake acrylic nails dug into
said quickly, swatting her arm away.
here is my office. I’ve actually been spending some time in this one, working
on my brand and what not.” I explained as she looked around at the various
photos I had hung on the wall.
nice. Take me to the kitchen, your last one was beautiful.” She said as she
walked out of the room.
not doing much cooking for the random girls?” Sophia asked as she stepped into
my all white kitchen and opened my fridge.
actually cook a ton for a girl these days.” I answered with a smirk.
Wow, for someone who follows my
Instagram so closely, you’d think she wouldn’t have missed all the photos I
post of Y/N, and I.
Girlfriend?” She questioned, suddenly very interested in what I had to say.
Almost a year now.” I answered as she rummaged through my pantry.
she is,” I said as my smile grew genuine. There Y/N was, waltzing down the back
staircase leading into the kitchen. She was wearing a tight, navy blue knee
length dress, black heels, and her glasses. Her short brown hair was
straightened and just touching her shoulders. She looked like a sexy librarian….
Even though she was a law student.
babe!” She said as she walked over to me, kissing me on the cheek. I grabbed
her waist and pulled her tightly in close to me, my hand resting on her ass.
the back door?” I asked.
nodded as her head rested on my chest. “So, you must be Julia.”
And you are?” Julia asked, kind of defensive.
my girlfriend, Y/N.” I said, trying to step in before things got too petty.
nice to finally meet you!” Y/N exclaimed, subtle sarcasm in her tone. “Babe, your
brand manager just sent an email that he needs you to approve designs that have
to finalized today. You need to call him ASAP. So I can finish the tour.” She said,
staring at Julia.
shit, yeah I have to go take care of that. Is that cool, guys?” I asked as I
began stepping away.
Mike said, as a disappointed look came over Julia’s face.
rushed out of the room, a large smile growing on my face after I knew I was out
of sight. I quickly scrolled through my emails and found nothing from my brand
Well played, babe.
you like Tyler’s assistant as well as his girlfriend? I mean, if you’re getting
his emails…” Sophie began.
cut her off. “I’m about to graduate from law school, so I just take a look at
all of the branding stuff and contracts to make sure everything is on the up
and up as far as legal stuff goes. I help out with the designs sometimes, too.”
Sophie said, staring down at the floor.
to see the upstairs?” I offered, borderline feeling bad that I had been so
harsh with her.
said, motioning for Mike to follow us upstairs.
this is our bedroom.” I said, walking into the large master bedroom.
in the process of moving in. Over here we have the his and hers closets. And
no, the ‘hers’ one isn’t filled with sweatpants he lets girls steal from him.”
I said coldly.
cute dresses you have!” Sophia said as she flipped through the dresses hanging
in my closet, trying to redeem herself.
answered, leading her to the other bedrooms upstairs.
continued through the other rooms of the house that were finished, and finally
made our way outside, where Tyler was sitting by the pool with Marshal and
you like the upstairs?” Tyler asked as he stood up and walked over to us.
Sophie said. “So, any romance rooms out at this pool?”
one right over there.” Tyler said, pointing the structure in the distance that
was not quite finished.
continued to show her around the pool area as I took his spot on the pool chair
and sat with the dogs.
that’s really all there is to it.” I heard him say.
Well, thanks for letting us come by. Can we get out this way?” Sophie asked,
pointing to the gate.
said as he waved goodbye to her and shook Mike’s hand.
too bitchy?” I asked as Tyler came to sit down next to me, putting his arm
not. Had to mark your territory. It was pretty hot, not going to lie.” He said
as he trailed kisses up my neck and to my lips.
I whispered, leaning into his kiss.
said quietly into my neck. “Swim?” He asked, looking up at me.
getting kind of hot in this dress.” I said, standing up and peeling it off.
hot without it.” Tyler said, standing up next to me and pushing me in the pool.
yelled as I came up from under the water. “I hate you!”
me.” He said with a smile as he took off his shirt.
I got my friend Katie to take some shots of my Taako cosplay with my phone 👌🏻It’s heavily inspired by @goknights and @hackedmotionart
since I fell in love with their Taako designs and that’s what finally got me to listen to The Adventure Zone after my friends were trying to get me to do so for years.
💎I made the coat a few years ago just because I needed a new coat. When I was a chef I occasionally left it in the break room & my coworkers started calling it “the wizard coat”, so it seemed pretty appropriate for Taako.
💎I wanted the braid on my wig to be more robust so I bought a clearance jumbo braid in alloy from Arda and wetfted it into an old white wig bc I thought the colors would look neat together.
💎I made the hat out of scraps from my remnants bin & whatever craft supplies I had lying around.
💎I ordered the umbrella off of ebay & then hand-painted it.
💎The belt accessory-holder-things were also made out of stuff lying around my apartment.
💎The jewelry & accessories are all things that I already owned (a couple borrowed from @scandalous-calves), some from years of going to ren faires and saying “I should get a nice wand because I’m inevitably going to need it for a cosplay someday”.
When i went to college, i moved 4 hours away from my small tiny farming community home town to the big city, leaving behing literally everything id ever known. I had no friends or family in the area, and i wasnt staying in dorms or student housing so i wasnt even sure id have people my age or interests around me at all.
So small quiet anxious me decided that it was the perfect timw to reinvent myself. No more quiet introverted withdrawn me! I was gonna be a new person! No longer would i fade into the background or go unnoticed!
So i? Bought? A ton of hats?
And my brand new me with the outgoing personality was actually just the same quiet anxious mess With a Hat and no one realy knew my name i was just “the one with the hats” butni successfully upgraded from “who?” So i guess it was a success
At UFC Fight Night 107: London, Brad Pickett made his final walk to the octagon, as he was set to retire following his bout against Marlon Vera.
Pickett made his professional MMA debut in 2004, and is one of the pioneers of the light weight-classes and their rise to the big stages such as the UFC and other big combat organizations.
Debuting for Cage Rage and essentially fighting for just the competition aspect, Picket made his rise and gained a wide following during his stay with WEC before being bought out by the UFC, in which provided the cage for his farewell fight, and countless new fans from all over the world.
The England native fell defeat in his last bout, getting knocked out by a head kick in the 3rd round. Pickett stated: “When I was younger, I would have eaten that kick and continued on”, showing why it was time to hang the gloves up, or in his case, take the hat off.
Pickett left every fight in the cage, and dedicated his body for entertainment and fun competition. A true warrior, and pioneer of this sport.
Storks AU; In which children are delivered by a stork to their proper parents, or in this case, not their proper parent
A story where Tendou Satori, is fully prepared to be a single father and writes a letter to finally get his own baby, and the Stork ends up delivering it to the wrong house and the women that lives there tries to find the man it really belongs too
Dear Stork (s),
I would finally like a baby, the gender I honestly don’t mind. It could be a girl or a boy and to me it wouldn’t make a difference. I do however want the baby to have red hair and red eyes just like myself. I would also like the child to have some kind of interest in the arts. Drawing, painting, singing, dancing anything would be good. Maybe some interest in a sport, volleyball, preferably but I won’t complain if they end up liking tennis or soccer. I’ve come to a point in my life where I am able to fully support a child and would really like one, so thank you in advance. - Tendou Satori
Tendou sighed rereading over his letter and folding it up, his heart was beating out of his chest as he sealed his letter. He placed the respectful amount of stamps on as well as both addresses. He stood from his spot at the table and opened his door placing the letter in his mailbox outside. He looked out at his lawn full of hope and excitement that was yet to come.
“Soon.” He whispered to himself, a small smile playing on his lips. “Soon.” He repeated, hands turning into phists of excitement as he walked off to his spare room.
His head filled with things that it could be filled of for his child, yet he knew he couldn’t go too overboard with it. Yet tomorrow around this time he would have his own baby and planning was one thing he did have to do.
His feet rushed for his shoes and jacket as he left his home. Walking down the sidewalk to the train station. He knew that the outlets that had the store just for children was in the outskirts of the city where he lived. Yet he didn’t want to take a forty minute walk just to get to the store and then have to walk all the way back with the new things he had bought.
So taking the train was his best bet. Once at the store he grabbed a cart and started filling it with all of the essentials for a baby. A crib, a stroller, some toys, bottles, pacifiers, diapers, and food. But lastly he stopped at the clothing.
“What are you getting?” A women asked him and he shrugged.
“I don’t know, I didn’t ask for a specific gender.” He said picking out a packet of cute blue and pink hats throwing them in the cart. He was just picking out things he thought were cute. He was studying the onsies as a worker approached him.
“You getting a girl huh?” He asked as Tendou started to reach for the pink onesies.
“Don’t know.” He responded putting the clothing in the cart.
“But that’s for girls, it’s pink.” The workers say and Tendou has a blank expression on his face as he turns to face the male worker.
“Colors that represent a certain gender are a social construct. If I want my baby in pink and it’s a boy, who cares. It’s my child anyway, and he or she can wear whatever they want.” Tendou explains rolling his eyes and walking away from the slightly shocked worker.
Tendou huffs as he goes to ring up all of his belongings. This is going to cost me so much money. He thought as the grand total of 45,086.00 yen popped up on the screen.
“You should have bought things gradually, costs the same but not all one big hit.” The cashier smiles as Tendou gets out his wallet.
“Of course, you’re right.” He sighs handing them his card. The money was basically going to be sucked dry from it and he had just gotten paid. “All worth it.” He muttered, mostly to himself before taking all of the bags and putting them back into the cart.
“You can take the cart if you need too. I won’t tell anyone.” The cashier says giving him a wink and Tendou couldn’t help but chuckle as he walked out of the store. Maybe taking the train wasn’t the best of idea’s.
“Eita!” Tendou shouted and the male looks up from his car keys.
“Satori?” The other male asks and Tendou rushed over to him.
“Hey! Can you give me a ride home.” Tendou exclaims and Semi looks down at Tendou’s cart. His eyes widened as he looks back at his red haired friend.
“Satori, are you getting a baby?” He asks and Tendou nods happily.
“I am yeah, isn’t it exciting! I’m finally going to be a dad!” Tendou exclaims yet little did he know the heart ace that he was going to receive the following day.
The red haired man waited, and waited and waited yet nothing ever happened. His baby never came to him and he only feared for the worst. Yet on the flip side (Y/N)’s world just flipped around.
Hearing her doorbell ring, she got up from her floor and opened the door. Seeing the stork who gently placed the baby in her arms and flew away. Her eyes widened as she looked down at the giggling child. It had fiery red hair that stuck up straight and matching colored eyes.
“Wait!” She yelled after the stork but it was too far gone to hear her calls. (Y/N)’s panic mode was quickly turned on as the baby grabbed at her glasses. Quickly falling to the floor and carefully placing the baby down and unwrapping it from the cloth. Seeing that the tracker that was along in the cloth wasn’t meant for her address but one for Japan. “Oh my god.” She muttered.
“Hey (Y/N) what’s all of the commotion?” Her roommate asked and her eyes widened. “Why didn’t you tell me you wrote a letter for the baby?” Lou exclaimed and (Y/N) quickly stood to her feet.
“This isn’t my baby! This baby belongs to someone in Japan by the name of Satori Tendou. They sent it to the wrong person!” She yelled picking up the baby and Lou held up her hands.
“We live in England how did that even happen?” Lou asks and the flustered girl shrugged.
“I’m going to have to deliver it to him.” She said softly and Lou’s eyes widened at her friend’s words.
“What about your job?” Lou asked her voice turning into nothing but worry.
“Right now this is way more important. I know I was saving up money for a trip to california but this is much more important.” She says holding the baby in her arms. “Much more important.” She repeated and stood tall. (Y/N) was going to do this no matter how long or tedious the trip to find the Satori man may be. She was going to do it.
Conquering fashion and crushing tech, Karlie Kloss is just getting started
Taking an Australian to an Australian restaurant is a very Karlie Kloss thing to do.
recommending dishes (green goddess salad! Avocado toast!) and knowing
everyone who works at the joint (Two Hands in N.Y.C.’s TriBeCa
neighborhood) is also très Karlie Kloss. Almost 10 years in, her
modeling career has encompassed more runways than JFK, more covers than
a … cover band, and more campaigns than some presidents (Swarovski,
Express, L’Oréal, Adidas). But the St. Louis–raised Kloss remains a
Midwestern girl who was brought up right. She’s two years into Kode with
Klossy, her 10-city (and growing) program to inspire young girls to
learn coding and enter the tech world, and over a year into her feminist
studies at NYU (complemented handily by today’s look: a Dior T-shirt
that says “We Should All Be Feminists”). But right now she’s just going
to extend her illegally long legs under the table for a chat.
LAURA BROWN: At
the British Fashion Awards in London last December, you were posing
away on the red carpet in a sparkly Swarovski thing, and it was
freezing. I just thought, “How does she keep turning up and doing that?”
KARLIE KLOSS: First
of all, I’m a Leo, so when I need to turn it on, I do. I enjoy the
adrenaline—not just when I’m walking the red carpet but also when I’m on
set or in a runway show or even in the small film things I’ve done. I
don’t know; I’m going to throw it to being a Leo because I have no other
explanation! But I also know the feeling of being spent.
What happens when you’re spent?
book myself out. I take time. I shut off. I don’t post to social media
for a couple of days, and I find that to be really rewarding and
healthy. It actually reenergizes me to be able to turn it back on and
have fun. We’re multitasking women; we all have a lot going on. But you
also have to protect yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally and
give yourself time.
“Book yourself out”: I know that’s a model term, but metaphorically, it’s a good idea too.
Yeah. Because you know what? It’s not a matter of being lazy—the
returns are tenfold: You’ll be able to show up with more energy, more
drive, more focus. It’ll pay off.
Are you type A?
I don’t know if I’m type A. I’m super-driven, but I’m not a perfectionist.
always told we can have it all, but acknowledging your limitations is a
wonderful thing too. There’s a beauty in knowing what you can’t do.
There’s also a beauty in not trying to figure it all out. Things like
Kode with Klossy happened because after graduating from high school, I
was fully focusing on my modeling career but at a certain point was
uninspired. That’s why I started taking a coding class.
When you sat down for that first coding class, did it feel like, “Oh, great!” or “Oh, s—!”?
only got myself into that first coding class because I was genuinely
curious about it and I met someone who started the Flatiron School … I
am someone who if you tell me I have to do something, I’m less inclined
to do it, but I took that class because I was really interested in how
all this works. It’s how the world is actually built. Code is the secret
language that builds all the digital architecture of everything that we
rely on. And pretty much a fraction of people know about it, yet we all
use it. I’ve always been intrigued by the direction nobody else is
going in. Not following the herd.
If anything, the herd is following you, especially when you’re, like, 7 feet in heels.
I never owned a pair of heels until I became a model. I remember buying
a pair of black high heels from Target in St. Louis because I had to
practice learning how to walk in them.
OK, set the scene for me, please.
had just turned 15—now 18 is the minimum age to model—and started high
school on a Monday, and by Friday I was on a plane to New York for a
casting call. I thought, “There’s no way anyone is going to book me for
New York Fashion Week, but it’s good to go and see people.” I had my
high heels from Target and a little black dress from Macy’s that my mom
bought me. It became my lucky little black dress that I continued to
wear again and again. That was the outfit I was wearing when I walked
into Calvin Klein in 2008 and got cast in the show that launched my
career. I look back at photos, and I’m like, “How and why did anybody
book me?” I was a child! But I was a very tall child. I’ve always been
kind of an old soul, I guess.
You’ve always read older. I’m still surprised at how young you are. I really loved those years.
And it was so different. The whole digital situation was different.
Do you think social media makes it harder or easier to succeed?
think it’s a different ball game. You have to have a strong presence on
the runway, schlep around the world to build a book for editorial, work
with the right people, and be in the right campaigns. You also have to
have a digital presence and brand yourself. Maybe it’s easier to break
through now because it’s democratized. It’s not like there are three
important people in the fashion industry who are going to say, “Yes,
you’re going to be successful.”
It’s the people’s choice.
and that’s what’s really interesting. Something can become successful
if it’s a good idea or if it’s going against the grain. It’s hard to
It’s important to have constants in all this, right? How do you manage a
relationship with all your travel and everything else? [Kloss dates
venture capitalist and health-care entrepreneur Joshua Kushner.]
You make it work. We’ve been together almost five years. Time flies. It’s crazy. He’s a super-solid dude.
Is it nice to know someone’s there?
I’ve always been super-close with my family. They are my rock. There’s
so much uncertainty in every direction, like, “Are you gonna get this
job?” So having a solid crew, whether it’s your family or a partner,
that’s a big part of being able to function.
What does being a feminist mean to you?
I’m taking a feminism class at NYU right now. It’s about the political
history of feminism, really, since the ’60s and ’70s. The term
“feminism” means different things to different people; a lot of people
throw it around without really understanding the weight of it because it
is layered. Two women can identify as feminists and have wildly
different ways of living their lives. I love what Maria Grazia [Chiuri]
is doing at Dior. She’s such a powerhouse. Having women in leadership
positions is so important. Hopefully it will happen in the White House
Would you ever consider making a run for the White House?
Never say never, right?
So, we did a superhero shoot together for InStyle. Who’s your real-life superhero?
mom, for sure. She battled really aggressive breast cancer when my
three sisters and I were young. She survived by the skin of her teeth.
I’ve grown up completely idolizing her. She’s so strong.
Were you ever into superheroes?
Woman, of course! First of all, she’s got great style, hair, and
accessories. And I love that she’s fearless. She doesn’t need a man.
She’s so independent.
Where would you go if you could fly an invisible jet?
I would love to be able to fly, period. Being invisible would be
amazing. I’m 6'2", so it’s hard to be invisible, but at times I love
just being a people-watcher, whether it’s in a café or the places I
Do you have days when you’re not recognized?
I put on a baseball hat and jeans and a T-shirt and nobody pays attention to me. It’s great. I hope that never changes.
Maybe when you hit 25 and get real old.
Hopefully I’ll start shrinking too!
When was the moment you knew you’d made it in your
I haven’t hit that moment yet, but when I bought my apartment in New York six years ago, that felt like a major milestone.
So you had a mortgage at 18?
Yeah. All my friends were, like, just getting their driver’s licenses.
What do you spend your money on?
I am very ambitious as an entrepreneur and as a businesswoman, but it
doesn’t matter how much money I make. I am frugal. I spend money on
experiences. I like to take amazing vacations with my loved ones. I like
property. I just bought a beautiful home in St. Louis.
That must be wonderful—coming back home with such success.
know what’s crazy? I bought the house I used to babysit in. My only job
before modeling was a $6-an-hour babysitting gig, which, by the way,
was great. I feel like I have this Cinderella story, and I’m really
grateful for it. It was not the path I was anticipating. Anyway, it’s
come full circle for me. I always loved that house.
What’s something you do every day that would surprise people?
Indulge in chocolate in some form. Chocolate is my weakness. It’s my Kryptonite.
If you’re really on a bender, what do you do? What’s your “f— it bucket”?
Top ice cream. It’s lower in calories. I’ll smash a whole pint. I have a
sweet tooth. That’s how Karlie’s Kookies happened, because I love
You’re super-diligent about working out. Do you try to keep it to a certain time every day?
I like to work out in the morning and get it out of the way because it
changes how I function the rest of the day. I feel more awake and am
more aware of what I eat. Since I’m always traveling and in a different
place, I started running. I love running in Paris and upstate New York. I
also love strength training. If I work out, it doesn’t immediately
change my body, but it changes my clarity, focus, and emotions. My job
right now is reliant on my body, but that’s genuinely not why I work
What’s your favorite thing to do? Do you cook a lot at home?
I love to cook. I love going to the market and getting fresh stuff and just getting creative.
How ambitious are you?
I want Kode with Klossy to grow. Last summer we had three camps with 20
girls in each one. This summer we have 15 camps in 10 cities and 20 to
25 girls in each class.
All of this and you’re not type A?
I’m grateful that I’m successful at 24 in a way that I never imagined I
would be. I feel lucky I started working at 15—it’s been almost 10
years. I feel like a geezer!
What was the last thing you bought for yourself?
I bought this sick handpainted Gucci leather jacket. It was from a
special collaboration. My frugal self broke the bank on that one. And
also the house. [Laughs]
What’s your favorite thing that you’ve worn out lately?
It was this cute little Dior sleeveless dress that was just way sexy and athletic. I loved it.
Most important, where are the Target shoes now?
My mom has the first crayon drawing I ever made, so I’m sure those shoes are in a box somewhere in the Kloss attic. (x)
At first I thought… Damon’s going all Che Guevara with his new hat.
But then I read he said he bought it for Gorillaz tour and I remembered that Russel pic.
A Black Panthers/Sandinista hat maybe?
Hallelujah Money et Vive la révolution 👊🏽
Loved your HC about sleep talking MC. Could you do one with the RFA +V & Saeran about an MC who crochets things for them like blankets, hats, scarfs, even stuffed animals? Thanks!

° it was physically impossible to do so no really ?
° you made up your mind and decided it was time to make something else
° you worked day and night on your new project
° in the end you made a cute little doll from a LOLOL character (*≧▽≦)
° the things you made were never bad or ugly but this one….
° it was a masterpiece!
° of course there weren’t many details, it was more like a chibi Version
° big head and eyes, small body, on one word: cute
° so perfect for Yoosung
° cute and cute mix well right?
° he came home late because of his club activities
° you patiently waited for his return
° when he arrived you rushed to the door and greeted him with a hug
° “Did something happen MC? You seem very cheerful today.”
° “I made something for you.”
° his face was saying: please not a scarf again!!
° “What did you made this time?” (・_・ヾ
° he was a Little scared but you overheard the this in his voice and dragged him to his Computer desk
° “Look, it´s a little figurine. I thought you have enough scarfs by now.”
° at first he was relived, at least not another scarf thank god!!
° but when he took a closer look he saw it was the character he always played in LOLOL
° “OH MY GOD!!!! MC this is just perfect!!” o(〃＾▽＾〃)o
° you were really glad he liked it, all of your hrd work payed of, finally
° “I´m glad you like it Yoosung.”
° you were happy that you could give him something he seemed to like very much, so you were pleased with yourself
° as a thank you, he went on the most romantic date you could imagine
° so in the end, everyone was happy yay o(≧∇≦o)
° you kept yourself occupied with handwork whenever Jaehee was away, which was often but that´s nothing new ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
° soon there were new blankets and pillows all over the house
° at first she didn´t notice them but after a few weeks it clicked
° “MC, did you bought a new blanket again?”
° by the Looks of it, they were handmade and very expensive because of the good Quality
° “I didn´t bought anything.”
° “But where are all these things from? Blankets, pillows and even tablelothes…”
° “These? I made them.”
° you got up from your place on the Couch and set the new hat you were working on aside
° Jaehee looked like she didn´t believe you
° as a proof you showed her the work in Progress
° she couldn´t believe her eyes… （＊〇□〇）
° she never knew you were so talented
° suprise Jaehee!
° as she saw your talent she asked you to make a few things for her
° scarfs, hats, a Poncho, gloves, and even a stuffed toy from Zen
° you had nothing to do anyway so you agreed
° as the weeks passed you got more and more work to do
° soon everybody from the RFA wanted to have something and you happyily made it
° Jaehee then had a brillinat idea, you could open your own online-shop
° with a little help from Seven, you made him a PhD Pepper-can-plushie in return, your website went online
° more and more requests arrived each day and your Hobby soon becae your fulltime Job
° on some days you were as busy as Jaehee but you never gave up on making little things for her (●♡∀♡)
° you first had the idea to crotch something for him as a present for succesfully performing his new Play
° it was a small pillow and it said congrats for rocking the theatre
° super cute, right? o(^▽^)o
° he never noticed on what you were working all the time but he saw that you did something
° he was confused why you always kept it a secret from him
° but hey, he understood that everybody has their secrets
° so you finished just in time for the first Performance of his new Play
° but you were a Little shy and didn´t gave it to him directly (*´∀`*)
° you decided to throw it onto the stage llike other fans did it with flowers and candy
° I wish someone would throw candy at me…
° your crotching skills may were quite well, your throwing skills weren´t
° which resulted in the pillow landing directly on his face
° he looked irritated and then Kind of passive-aggressive （；¬＿¬)
° you knew you did something wrong, but was it your fault that you weren´t good at throwing pillows??
° now it seemed like he startedto cry, your sense of fault was bugging you even more…
° but he eventually saw from who the pillow was thrown and his mood changed immediately
° the look on his face said that you´ll have to talk about that after the Show
° the Show was a bid succes (what else?) and you went to Zen´s Dressing room
° he was already there, with the pillow in his arms
° “This was you MC, wasn´t it?”
° you looked down, embarassed and nervous
° “Yes, it was me. I wanted to give you a suprise but it ended up hitting you. I´m sorry Zen.” (⌣_⌣”)
° “Why should I be angry at you? You´re not the first Person to throw somrthing at my face and you´ll surely won´t be the last.”
° he came towards you and kissed you
° “More importantly, I´m honored and very happy that you made me something so Special. I´m moved and I almost cried tears of joy.”
° so that´s why he cried…
° “I´m happy when you´re happy Zen. I just wanted to give you something since you´ve been practising so hard These past few weeks.”
° “So you mean if I Keep practising hard you´ll make more for me?”
° he looked like a Little child on Christmas morning o(≧∇≦o)
° “Sure, if you want that I can make more for you.”
° he picked you up and spun you around while you screamed in shock
° “Zen out me down, if I knew you´d be happy about this Kind of Thing I would have made something sooner.”
° from this day on you had to make something for every new Play he acted in
° oh, and the Foto from Zen who was crying came in the newspaper by the way XD
° face reality, you didn´t had anything to do in his huge Penthouse
° exept for Petting Elisabeth and waiting for Jumin´s return of Course
° so you made up your mind and decided to find yourself a Hobby
° first you tried teaching Elisabeth some tricks, failed

° then there were all of these pillows
° they didn´t look bad and fit into the living room well, so why bother saying anything?¯\_(ツ)_/¯
° but he started to get a bit confused when the blankets started to appear all over the Couch
° “MC, where do all these crotched things come from? Not that they look bad but there are more by each day.”
° he didn´t sound angry or like he would ask you to throw them away, just confused
° “I started crotching and made all these things. If you don´t like them I can put them away or give to someone.”
° you didn´t mind if they disappeared, it was only a hobby to kill time to begin with anyway
° “No, don´t take them away, I like them and I think you hold a Special Talent for crotching.”
° you were pleased with yourself and kept crotching, now for Jumin
° he was more than happy to receive the small presents you made especially for him
° it only got a bit embarassing when he wore a pink scarf to work XD
° anyone who looked weird at him got fired
° some People are good with Computers, some have amazing cooking skills
° you had neither

° Seven sat infront of his Computer the whole day and sometimes the night too
° he had a good chair but even a high Quality object gets uncomfortable sometimes

° just a few minuites before his present was almost finished he took the Courage to confront you with his Feelings
° “MC, why do you make all These Things for the RFA?” (*ﾟｰﾟ)ゞ
° you heard that he sounded a bitt nervous and quickly catched on with what was going on

But anyway, I really hope you like it and that it makes up a tiny bit for taking so Long <3
Tony Stark knew on an intellectual level he had no impulse control. He knew because almost everyone he’d ever met had told him so, Pepper, Rhodey, Steve oh god so much Steve, Happy, the 12 assistance before Pepper, Xavier and the waitress at John’s Pizzeria off 43rd ave. He’d heard it all before, But nothing compared to the moment he realized it for himself.
To be real he probably should have noticed in every moment leading up to the big one. He should have seen that swiping Thor’s stash of Asgardian mead with Darcy was a bad idea. He should have known better than to have a marathon of broiler makers with the mouthy intern using the ale instead of whiskey was a bad idea.
He probably should have known if he was swaying that they shouldn’t have gone out, but Darcy had said she hadn’t seen the city yet and Steve and Bucky kept teasing her about it.
Happy hadn’t even needed to hide his eye rolling because Tony was to focused on the crisp fall air on his flushed face. Darcy was beside him bubbling with laughter ignoring Happy’s cries that they should both sit down and get out of the sun roof. They headed to Times Square and bought an entire vender out of cheesy “I love New York” hoodies and in Tony’s case a hat to sort of disguise himself. They pulled on their hats and sweatshirts and Happy directed the rest to be sent to the tower. Tony slipped the bemused man a hundred and patted the man’s hand like a grandma before turning back to his sidekick.
“This is what all the superhero’s are wearing!” He proclaimed proudly gesturing to his heinous green ball cap with “Hulk Smash” stitched in purple on the front. He didn’t care at the time but the selfies of him and Darcy in Times Square were cringe worthy. They briefly dropped by John’s and said hello to Tony’s waitress. She shook her head and sent them on their way with glasses of water and sympathetic looks for Happy.
“Come on We’ve got a few more stops!” Tony gestured over his shoulder into the streets at the car. Apparently however Darcy’s eyes had not stopped at the car but landed on a street performer dressed as the Statue of Liberty.
“Oh can we please go see Her?” Her hand covered her heart and she gestured like a child to the woman with the other. Happy checked his watch and frowned.
“The fairy’s closed down this time of day.” He told Tony. Tony nodded in agreement. “We could go see Conney Island if you promise to sit completely in the car before we go home for the night.”
“Ohh Steve said it’s awesome!! We can go to the Lady tomorrow! I want to sing her the National Anthem and don’t know if I could get all the key changes right now” She giggled “We could take Steve and have the most patriotic photo shoot. Phil would love it!” and with that she held her arm out to Happy agreeably. And all that would have been fine if it hadn’t been for traffic.
Happy pulled up to the curb and Tony rolled down his window with a frown. The park was closed. Darcy hadn’t noticed yet as she was making quick work of Tony’s mini bar but she tended to be a weepy drunk the fall out was going to be Niagara worthy.
“Oh man, no Lady and no cyclone? Why’s time ruining my fun Tony?” Darcy’s lower lip quivered. Immediate action was required. Mayday!
“Hey, hey No! No tears, what’s the use in being obscenely rich if I can’t bribe someone with my money!” He gave an encouraging grin. Happy’s heavy sigh was not lost on him. “I’ll go ask if we can ride the cyclone and maybe win us a bear okay no tears” He quickly backed out of the car leaving Happy to handle the teary eyed twenty something.
The door shut and it sounded sharper to Tony somehow as he walked toward the gate. A memory that was faded and liquored up played at the edges of his mind, huge blue eyes watering slightly in a perfect pout. His own voice murky in time “Hey what’s the use in being obscenely rich if I can’t…” and then it was gone. He frowned and waved over the gate man.
A few charming smiles and a probably too fat check later and he turned to tell Darcy the good news. She was resting her chin on the window smiling lazily at him. She wiggled her fingers and Tony grinned back before a similar smile brushed his mind again. He shook his head to clear away some of the haze. It’d been almost two hours he wasn’t as drunk as before but there was still a layer of fuzz on his mind.
“Race ya!” She grinned and bounded off toward the ride. Tony gave a bark of laughter and let the memories rest before jogging slowly after her. They tossed ratty baseballs and weighted milk bottles before the attendant an exhausted looking man in his late thirties gave them a wane smile and asked which prize they wanted. Darcy got the Bucky Bear. Tony shorted and got the Captain America one just for laughs. They took a shaky selfie with the attendee before thanking him and heading toward their goal.
“We should snap them with the bears and hashtag it wish you were hear but you’re not because you’re lame and had meeting and responsibilities” Darcy placed her Bucky in her lap and was readying her phone before Tony agreed.
“We also, you know, didn’t invite them” He pointed out. She made a dismissive sound and tucked her head close to his giving her phone a goofy face. Tony hid most of his face behind Bear Steve and widened his eyes comically. The younger brunette seemed satisfied and put away her phone allowing the impatient teen running the cyclone to push the lap bar down over her Tony Bear Bucky and Steve.
The ride began a slow spin and before it had even reached half way Tony regretted buying this time. The teenager seemed irked he had to stay for Tony and what the kid probably figured was a one nighter and so the ride was hurtling toward a break neck pace only irritating Tony’s stomach further. Darcy however threw her hands up Bucky Bear’s paw firmly gripped in one and whooped. Tony swung between needing to vomit all over the place and watching the manic yet somehow beautiful looks on Darcy’s face. She brought her bear back down and buried her nose in it’s fur. The ride began to slow and she opened her eyes unfocused and bloodshot. Windswept and Content.
It ended up being Darcy and not Tony who shot off the attraction to the nearest garbage can to Ralph. Tony followed close behind and pulled her hair back into his fist and out of the danger zone. He leaned heavily on the can and grimaced at the sounds.
When she at last paused in her litany of puke she turned her head to look up at him simultaneously green and mischievous.
“Don’t tell the boys” She asked. Tony’s heart stopped as he looked at her. He nodded once unable to find words. Satisfied with this she fell face first into him. Mostly into his armpit but she smiled against him. Tony let got of her hair and gently held her to him stroking her dark locks and thinking unburdened by alcohol of a busty blond who’d rocked his world with a practically identical grin. Darcy’s breath flowed steadily on his neck as she repositioned herself in his arms.
“Thanks for holding my hair.” She murmured. Tony hummed in response.
As much as Tony was wildly incapable of controlling himself he was incredibly careful with secrets. They could hurt, he knew from his experiences with Stane. His almost ending the thing with Pepper. Infuriating his teammates and elected officials. So he was in something of a quandary.
As soon as they’d returned to the tower Tony had deposited a snoozing Darcy in her bed with Bucky bear on one side of her and Steve on the other. He of course took a picture of her drooling into Bucky’s fur and then hesitated. It was too similar to ignore. If he didn’t do this he’d spend the rest of his life wondering until he got answers. So he plucked a hair off her pillow and turned tail and run back to his lab.
Jarvis had had to repeat his name four times when he finally knew. Tony tried to put the memories together more solidly but he only recalled the blond laughing and waving much like Darcy did. He remembered holding her hair back while she emptied her stomach off the balcony of the Palms, She had turned to him with an almost identical grin and snatched his heart out of his chest. Tony closed his eyes and felt the brush of skin on skin hot greedy kisses and waking up the next morning alone. He’d figured she’d been embarrassed or maybe had someone waiting at home. He’d been disappointed but she’d made her choice so he’d let her walk.
“Oh Kate” He looked forlornly as the Vegas police report of her car accident and her daughter no one had come to claim. “Katie” He groaned as he realized he could have saved the little girl a world of grief that followed. Foster home after Foster home until she aged out.
Well now he knew. but what do do. Who to tell? Pepper? Eventually. Rhody was always a good option but Tony’s thumb hovered over calling him for a solid minute before deciding someone else. Eventually he’d dialed before his decision had been fully processed.
“How did you get this number? I know I didn’t give it to you” was the first thing the voice said and Tony felt a calm fill him. A good choice.
“I’m in a quandary. It needs handling it’s that what you do Agent?” He stalled. The other end of the line was silent. “I may have discovered I’m a father” There was an even heavier pause.
“and I’m the first person you wanted to tell? I don’t think Pepper” He began.
“No It’s not Pep. I’ve been a father for a while apparently.” Tony cut across. “Like 23 years”
“Yea 100 percent. Do I tell her? What if she doesn’t want me? She’s been alone for a long time now she doesn’t need me.” Tony felt a panic rise in his chest. Oh God, she’d never forgive him.
“You need to take a deep breath.” Tony inhaled threw his nostrils. “If she doesn’t know she deserves to at least know. just be honest with her Tony. Honesty will get your farther than you think”
Tony gave a noncommittal grunt and rested his head on hands.
“For what its worth Tony, You’ll be a great father” Tony’s breath caught.
“Enough with the feelings Agent Agent Thanks for picking up.”
“I’m contractually obligated” He deadpanned. Tony laughed and killed the call.
Tony was going to handle this well. Maybe take her to lunch and talk it out like adults. He was excited and nervous and had yet to sleep. He was currently fixing coffee from the enormous demonic espresso machine he’d had fitted in the common room when he invited everyone to live with them when people began filling in for breakfast.
Steve and Bucky both coming in from their morning run and apparently showers. They nodded curiously at the billionaire before pulling down pots and pans. Bruce wondered in next and gave him a scathing look for his ball cap which he had neglected to take off. That explained the looks Tony placed it carefully on the counter.
“So what did we learn?” Jane’s voice carried into the room ahead of her and the others looked up. Darcy entered holding her stomach and shuffling pitifully. Jane followed looking much less hungover.
“Don’t drink with Tony.” Darcy grunted and began to pour her own cup of coffee. Tony didn’t speak, not trusting himself to yet. His eyes watched hungrily as she stirred her drink for signs of what he knew. Her unbrushed wild brunette hair, the shape of her eyes, the hangover slouch yea he could see it. Then Katie’s beautiful blue eyes and pouty mouth, her heart snatching laugh. It seemed so obvious
“What?” Darcy glowered at him. Oh yea he had that grumpy face sometimes.
“Darcy threw up on the cyclone!” He blurted. Her eyes widened.
“TONY!” She shrieked.
“And she’s my daughter!” His shouting matched hers in pitch but was far more excited. Darcy’s eyes widened if possible further and then narrowed looking at him critically.
The supers were paused mid bite. Jane gaped and Bruce eyed the pair wearily.
“Okay I can see that” She finally said with a shrug. Tony barked a laugh not exactly how he’d pictured her taking the news. Then again he hadn’t thought he’d shout it at her over breakfast in the common room either.
Such was life when you had no impulse control. But looking at the beautiful girl across from him he thought he rather liked this life.
I’d appreciate a signal boost on this if you can, because anything helps.
I am a professional author. I don’t make very much money. Authors generally don’t. I am also legally disabled. I have severe BPD II, ADD, and assorted anxiety disorders which makes holding down a 9 to 5 job impossible, which means I receive a very small check from the government. My total annual income is less than 15k.
After ten years of very little change in my life, I am starting to make a good existence for myself. I bought a car and learned to drive. I am making my way as an author and slowly expanding my catalogue of books. I am traveling more often. I recently married the love of my life and am knee deep in the very, very expensive and stressful task of immigration so that I can be with her.
Unfortunately, all of this costs more money than cowering in a basement. Oh, and did I mention that the second I move across the border, I lose that disability stipend?
I’m bad at this. I just wrote a whole paragraph about the bad month I had financially and then deleted it. I catch myself thinking things like “well you just bought some new clothes on clearance the other day, that means you’re fine.” But I just went to go get groceries and realized I didn’t have any money. And was, in fact, 50 dollars over my credit limit.
So I’m standing here, hat in hands. I’m a good fandom queer lady who could really use whatever you can give me to get over this hump. Even now I want to just delete this entire message, but then I think that damn, if even one person funnels two dollars my way, that would be… really, really, really nice.
If you want to be that angel with the two dollars, please feel free to paypal it to me at rosaaquafire[at]gmail[dot]com.
