and maybe a few beautiful aliens

Where’s My Daddy (Fic Request)

Request for @imthegnome I sincerely hope I got this one spot on for you. I’ve crossed it slightly with my own story (‘Together’) so I can get some Poets of the Fall music in for you. 

Thorin finds a little girl in the halls of Erebor, frightened and searching for her father. While taking her back to her father, Thorin sings one of his wife’s favourite songs to the girl and tells her stories of how he met the Queen. (Includes lyrics from ‘Children of the Sun’ by Poets of the Fall.) 


Where’s My Daddy?

Thorin was alerted to sobbing as he ascended the stone steps towards his bed chamber. He had been in council all afternoon with his Queen, Leah, who left early in order to put their children, Thrain and Rachel to bed. He searched for where the sound was coming from and then saw a little girl sat in the corner just beneath the steps.

Thorin stepped closer to the girl, watching her large eyes study him. “Where’s my Daddy?” she asked, in a frightened and high pitched voice. “I was napping and had a bad dream, and couldn’t find him.”

“Come from there,” Thorin said, smiling at the child. “What’s your name?”

“Freya,” the girl replied, sniffing away the lingering tears. “Are you the King?” Her blue eyes studied his crown, widening even further at the sight of the polished gold sitting on Thorin’s hair.

“I am,” Thorin replied.

“I have to be an extra good girl, then?”

Thorin couldn’t help but smile, Freya reminding him so much of his daughter, Rachel. He took the girl’s hand and guided her out from beneath the stairway, but as they began to walk up the steps, Thorin noticed the girl yawn. “Could you sing to me?” she asked. “Just until I find Daddy?”

Without even consciously thinking on which song the child would like, he began singing one of Leah’s favourites. His wife and Queen was from a world called Earth, and so had introduced a lot of the songs and stories from that world to Thorin and their children. Most nights she would sing to Rachel and Thrain, singing beautiful words that Thorin still found quite alien, but enchanting all the same. One song in particular Thorin knew well as Leah would sing it not only to their twins, but when she was getting dressed or tidying the bed chamber.

And I’ll be singing you

Songs of tomorrow
And then dawn will follow
And our sorrows all undone

Thorin’s deep voice echoed around the stone halls as he carried Freya towards one of the main halls where he knew his guards would be. Maybe one of them knew whose daughter she was. In the hallways which split off towards the bed chambers, very few guards ventured. They were mostly stationed in the halls, council rooms and the front gates leading into Erebor.


When you’re done with all the strife
When they echo the minds in the streets
You know your heart beats
A solitary call
For a change in the tone of it all
You’ll be scaling that wall
And the higher you climb
The more you can see of this life
On the edge of that knife
You hold on to me
Hold on to me

“What is that?” Freya asked, looking up at Thorin from the warmth of his robe that she had tucked her head and neck into. “I like it very much.”

“It is a song that the Queen sings to me and our little ones,” Thorin said, holding Freya close to him, almost forgetting himself for a moment and thinking it was Rachel or Thrain he was embracing.

“How did you meet the Queen?” Freya asked.

Thorin chuckled. “Why so many questions, young one?”

“Tell me,” she insisted, giggling. “I like hearing about how Mommy and Daddy met, so tell me about you and the Queen.”

“Very well,” Thorin replied, chuckling again at her enthusiasm. “I met her while I was on a journey, coming back to Erebor to be King.”

Freya laughed, grabbing the neck of Thorin’s robe, twisting it playfully. “Oooh, you fell in love.”

“We did.”

“Lots of kissy kissy.”

“Now you’re being cheeky,” Thorin said, tapping the tip of her small nose with his finger.

Freya laughed again and pushed her head inside Thorin’s robe.

By now Thorin had made his way towards the main hall and was just approaching the large, wooden doors which led inside. “Can you tell me more about the Queen?” Freya asked as Thorin stopped outside the doors.

“Apart from being a very brave lady whom I love very much, what else would you like to know?”

“Is she a good Mommy?”

Thorin sighed at the thought of his Leah playing with their twins, singing to them, telling them stories and taking them walking through the trees which surrounded Erebor’s entrance. “She is the best I have ever seen, and I am proud that she is my children’s mother. I think she would like to meet you.”

“I bet she is very beautiful!” Freya said loudly. “All Queens are.”

Suddenly the wooden doors opened sharply and a guard appeared, still dressed in his leather tunic and accompanying armour for duty. “Freya!” he called. “Thank you, my Lord!” The guard dashed to Thorin and took his daughter from the King’s arms. “My wife came to find me, frantic, as Freya had ventured out of bed again trying to find me.”

“Daddy!” Freya shouted, jumping into the guards arms.

“Oh, my dearest!” the guard exclaimed.

Freya hugged her father tightly and laughed. “I had a bad dream and I couldn’t find you. You always fight the monsters away. And the King found me. I think he’s a good Daddy, too, but not as a good as you.”

Title: Someone Who’ll Be A Good Mother

Prompt: Mon-El is there to comfort Kara when she feels anxious about having a baby.

Also posted on AO3.

Requested by @lostin-the-desert. Thank you so so so much for this amazing prompt, as you see it didn’t take me long to write it because I liked it so much that writing came easy lol :) I hope this was what you wanted.

Enjoy!


Kara didn’t know how long she’d been gazing into the mirror, her hand on her stomach, her fingers gently drawing circles. However, the turmoil of emotions inside her was definitely not soft or gentle.

She couldn’t do it. How could she ever think that she could? Yes, she might be Supergirl, one of the strongest aliens on the face of earth: She could smash a brick wall without breaking a sweat, carry a truck on her shoulders without even feeling the weight of it, catch bullets and even deflect them with her bulletproof skin, but taking care of a baby…? That she couldn’t do.

Taking deep breaths, she grabbed the edge of the sink, trying to keep the contents of her breakfast inside. It wouldn’t help if she threw up in the toilet again. She hadn’t really gotten sick ever since she landed on earth, and oh, she definitely did not like it. Her chest was still burning because of the last time.

She lifted her eyes to look at her reflection again, realizing that her eyes were wide, there were huge bags under them, and her cheeks were pale. She looked tired and frightened all over, making her mutter a string of earth and Kryptonian curses under her breath.

Maybe deciding to take a day off from CatCo was a bad idea. She desperately needed a distraction from…her desperation over the baby growing in her stomach. And there’s only four months left, she thought anxiously, biting her lip. When she removed her hands from the sink, she realized there were dents wherever she put her fingers, which didn’t help with her anxiety at all.

Night at Purgatory

Prompt from anon: Cas sees Dean bloody Winchester at a gay club? What in the world is the school’s “lady man” doing here?? and why is he wearing cowboy getup?

`

“Purgatory?” Castiel lifted his eyes up and read the neon lights again over and over in his mind. It sounded like the worst name in the world for a gay bar.

“I swear, it is bitchin’.” His best friend Balthazar grinned from ear to ear and already winked at a few attractive guys making their way past the bouncer. “It is the best place to get you out of your guy slumber.”

“I am not in a slumber.” Cas muttered as he let his eyes fall to the concrete and fumbled with his hands. “And I definitely don’t need to go into a place called ‘Purgatory’.”

Balthazar rolled his eyes and clapped a hand to Cas’ shoulder. “If you don’t have a good time in there, then you can sit me down and make me watch Titanic for an entire day straight. You know how much I loathe that movie.”

anonymous asked:

Hi! I'm fairly new to the fandom! I was wondering if you could enlighten me on some inside jokes the ARMY has! That most of the ARMY knows about and jokes about a lot. Thanks!

Oh, hello! Welcome to the ARMY! <3

There are way too many to name them all, but I’ll name off a the most popular! 

  • The Push-Push Dance

Well, this one is a bit older, but it’s one of the funniest in my opinion. J-Hope decided to…do his little push-push dance and influence the maknae line…and now, they can’t seem to stop. The ARMY fandom jokes about the push-push dance a lot because…well…yeah. Way to go Hoseok

  • J-Hope’s High Note

Okay, if you’re part of the ARMY, you know about the random high note. It’s crucial that you know about this beautiful Trot version of N.O. The ARMY jokes about Hoseok’s random high note because it was just really, really random. And beautiful. Don’t forget beautiful. 

  • V and the toilet. 

This is a very, very popular inside joke with the ARMY. The jokes still go strong, and there honestly isn’t a day when you aren’t reminded of the time Taehyung decided to miss the red carpet because he was using the toilet. 

  • Dance Monster

Basically this: It’s R.A.P Monster, not D.A.N.C.E Monster. But the ARMY knows Namjoon can dance

  • J-Horse

Again, another very popular joke with the ARMY. There are various jokes about Hoseok and his secret life as a horse. 

  • Pink Princess

The entire ARMY knows about the Pink Princess. Seokjin is the queen of divas. He’s truly the most elegant princess out there. Get on his level

  • Alien V

Well, basically, Taehyung is an alien

  • Jin x Mario

Literally the newest fandom joke. And when I mean new, I literally mean the video came out less than a few hours ago. But…I mean…Seokjin’s love for Mario…it’s beautiful

  • Swagger

Min Yoongi has more swag than you. 

Alright! There you have it! 

There are so many more, but it would take way too long to name them all. So we’ll keep it at this for now. Maybe in the near future, I’ll collab with some friends and make a huge masterlist! 

I hope you enjoy!
