and when can a girl meet

Owning It

@tralatrala suggested men come up with a hashtag for when we’ve acted out of a place rooted in toxic masculinity.

There have been a lot with me, particularly before I turned 30. Not that 30 is a magical age circumstances and events just lead me to a more aware state.

One example I can recall from my late teen years. You see as I was going through puberty my entire family questioned my sexuality. It was always in response to me not fighting, not having lost my virginity, not being into sports (I was in theatre and into computer gaming).

One day I meet this girl and I was just smitten. I tell all my friends and word got around the neighborhood. One of the “cool kids” of the neighborhood met her and they hit it off.

I was crushed. How couldn’t she see he was an asshole junkie that wanted to just fuck her? How couldn’t she see that I was such a nice guy™ and would treat her right?

I talked to my dad about it and he made a comment that a real man would fight for what he wants.

So I did.

I met him in front of my best friend’s house and he thought it was funny I wanted to fight him. He thought I was kidding.

I let loose years of rage and I fucked this guy up pretty good. He was crying screaming “stop stop” when I slammed his face into the sidewalk. My friends pulled me off him and everyone is yelling “what the fuck man? What the hell is wrong with you?!”

It’s weird to look back at that 20 years later.

It’s weird to think that was ever me.

It’s weird to think that I went on to lose my virginity and decide that sex was the key to being a man. How much of a braggart I was without thinking and how many times I’ve called someone a “crazy bitch” when I was called out or didn’t get my way.

I engaged in all the awful behavior that got me laughs online .

Seriously I’m glad I’m not 18-24 anymore.

It wasn’t until I went to therapy for a lot of my issues and had to own them and face them and try and heal from them that I really started changing.

I look back and it’s just fucking insane.

I’ve made it a point to not fall into that behavior - you won’t hear me call women bitches, you won’t hear me talk about women being crazy, and I no longer use “rape” as something that happens if I lose a game.

Those are little things. They were things I was guilty of and could work on immediately.

It’s taken a lot of time, listening, study, and reflection to understand that this culture is toxic and fucking awful.

I remember early on in my career (22 or so) a woman went from tech support to the web design team. A position I really wanted. My first thought was that “she must have fucked someone to get there”.

Never once did I think she was more qualified or interviewed better.

I wasn’t the only one and she instantly went from being “one of the guys” to “that bitch that slept her way into a new position” on the tech support floor.

How fucking disgusting.

So yeah, I’m #owningit - I’m doing my best to improve and make it better for everyone around me. I will instill all that I’ve learned to my son, I will squash any shit I hear like that at work, and I always will listen to people when they say that they’ve been fucked over by toxic masculinity. It exists. It’s harmful.

I’m far from perfect but I’m a damn sight better that I was years ago.

It’s not bragging it’s just progress.

My behavior was both shameful and celebrated. What a weird and awful construct we live in.

Guys! Yesterday I met the girls, and they are unreal af, I was in shook when I saw them, it was so beautiful, oh and I also saw the galaxies of Lauren you know what I mean? And I definitely got lost, they’re so real and beautiful. Wow, I came out drooling at meet and greet. But I couldn’t hug them each for the short time they gave, so it was the most beautiful 10 seconds of my life (so far) but they are more beautiful than in photos. Wow I CAN’T BELIEVE. I don’t think I’ll ever get over it. 💕💕💕💕 and yeah that’s me, but I don’t care anymore

The Best Girlfriends of the Zodiac, Ranked Worst to Best
12. Scorpio

She comes in last. Beware of the Scorpio woman out of all the signs. She is the one you should be the most frightened of. You have to be prepared for the honesty of a Scorpio girlfriend. She will be very passionate, and she will show you that she loves you in ways you’ve never experienced before. But the moment that you make a big mistake, expect that she is going to be ruthless in bringing you down. When you are on her good side, she is the best you can get. Just remember that!

11. Virgo

The Virgo girlfriend may be critical about the relationship that you have with her. Insecurity can play a big role. Even though you try to reassure her your love, this won’t be sufficient at times.  She is usually the most insecure of the people that you meet, and she gets jealous easily. But you think that she is perfect in every way or at least, perfect for you.

10. Aries

A relationship with an Aries girl is in one word ‘intense’. Because she feels everything to the core. She frequently rushes into things so you may get intimidated in the beginning especially if you think you are still not ready for a new relationship.  Though, if she senses the smell of being unwanted she’ll be already out the door. If she included you in her world, she will do everything in her power to have fun and make your day a better one.

9. Taurus

Taurus women are very fond of their freedom. That is why relationships in the beginning can go very slow. She has to know you are worthy of her love. If you won her over she will be extremely loyal. She is your mother, your cook and your lover all at once. Don’t mess this up, you will not get a second chance.

8. Cancer

If you would like to be pampered and cared for, you need a Cancerian girlfriend. You can expect that she will be wearing her heart on her sleeve all the time. You know exactly how she is feeling. You do not want to upset her, but she tends to become upset easily over the smallest things. She is not very trusting, and it will take a long time for you to get her trust but just seconds to break it. She cares for you, but at times, she does not want to show it though it is evident. Her contradicting actions may seem confusing for you, but the moment that you get her, she will do her best not to break your heart.

7. Leo

If you are big on romance, Leo is your sign to date. Magical and enchanting romantic affairs the kinds of relationships you thought only exist in the movies. Not easy to uphold but this is everything she wants and she will fight you for it. Leo women like a ‘project’ as a partner or someone that need to be ‘saved’.

6. Aquarius

The perfect average girlfriend. She’s right there in the middle. She is very loyal and committed when it comes to relationships but also has a very eccentric aspect to her personality. She is very independent. She may also be considered weird because people do not understand her thoughts and actions. The moment that you get to know her better, you will begin to realize what she is trying to prove. And you will see how wonderful she is.

5. Gemini

A Gemini woman is a healthy mix of positives and negatives. You will have your fair share of fun and exciting times, but you will also go through your fair share of struggles. Most of the time, a Gemini woman is fun, adventurous, and easygoing. However, they also have a dark side about them that they reveal every once in a while.

4. Libra

You almost can never go wrong with dating a Libra girl. She is known to be one of the most genuinely kind people out of all the Zodiac signs. They tend to always portray a positive spirit and they always want the people around them to be happy. However, you have to be very careful with your words around a Libra woman. She has the tendency to get hurt fairly easily. She does not like having conflicts with the one she loves so even if she senses that something is wrong or even if you did something that she did not like, she would not say anything about it. If you are a jealous type you must know, a Libra woman tends to be very charismatic and social. She will be surrounded with quite some people.

3. Capricorn

A Capricorn woman is someone who will never come up short when it comes to effort. She is always going to give her 100% dedication and commitment to any relationship. Although she can be difficult to deal with because of her perfectionist ways, you will always end up thankful for having her in your life. You know that your life would be just way worse without her in it.

2. Pisces

While typically, a Pisces girl is always shy at first, she is most definitely going to be worth all the patience and effort in the world. She is incredibly trustworthy and you can always rely on her to take care of your heart. She is very skilled at figuring out how you’re feeling at any particular moment. She is also very sensitive and careful with both her words and actions.

1. Sagittarius

She is always guarded but the moment that you can conquer her heart, you will be one of the few special people in her life. If you manage to land a Sagittarius girl, she is on an endless pursuit to always push you to become the best version of yourself. She is a very selfless and generous human being who always places the needs of others above her own.
They are always in the business of trying to make the people around them better. And that is why she has been declared as the best girlfriend.

asquidaliciousnerd  asked:

HC: Otabek is secretly the founding father of Yuri's Angels. He set up a fan page after first meeting Yuri when he was like 12 without realising how big it would become and then watched as it was taken over by hoards of fangirls over the years. All the Angels regard the mysterious 'girl' who started the fandom as their leader but nobody knows 'her' true identity. Now whenever Yuri is ambushed by screaming fans Otabek just sweats nervously and thinks 'Dear God, what have I created?'

lmao the whole yuri’s angels fanclub would implode if they ever found out it was otabek behind this

'Wayward Sisters': Get the first details on the 'Supernatural' spin-off
Samantha Highfill | October 13, 2017 at 9:55am EDT

In  June, The CW announced Wayward Sisters,
 a potential Supernatural spin-off — with a backdoor pilot set to air as Supernatural‘s first episode of 2018 — about a group of troubled women who’ve all been orphaned by supernatural tragedy. Led by the late Jimmy Novak’s daughter, Claire (Kathryn Love Newton), and under the training of sheriffs Jody Mills (Kim Rhodes) and Donna Hanscum (Briana Buckmaster), they’ll become a monster-fighting force. “This is an opportunity to do something in the world of Supernatural that has some of the sensibilities of Supernatural but addresses a lot of issues, scenarios, and characters that are very different,” executive producer Andrew Dabb says.

It all begins when Claire comes home. “Claire went out, she kicked ass on her own, but a crisis will occur that will force her back into the fold of the Wayward family,” EP Robert Berens explains. And though the show will have a similar feel to Supernatural — Kim Rhodes calls it a “perfect sibling” to the series — one of its biggest differences is location. While Supernatural is a road show, Wayward will be localized in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, a decision that Dabb says allows them to create a real community. “This is a place where romance can happen. Or rivalry,” he says.

Speaking of which, Claire arrives home to find that her caretaker, Jody, has taken in a new psychic named Patience (Clark Backo), the granddaughter of Missouri Moseley (Loretta Devine), and she won’t exactly be happy about it. “[Jody] is constantly saying, ‘My door is always open,’ and she does it again in episode 3 of this season where we meet Patience,” Rhodes says. Dabb adds that Patience will serve as the “eyes of the show” when she walks in as the new girl. “Everyone else is like, ‘Sometimes we do autopsies of monsters on the dinner table.’ She’s like, ‘That’s insane! That’s not a thing people do.’ She’s there to offer a little bit of perspective.”

Rounding out the family is Alex (Katherine Ramdeen), the first girl Jody took in and the closest thing she has to a daughter, and Kaia (Yadira Guevara-Prip), 
a new addition who has the ability to walk between worlds in her dreams. “Kaia has been on her own for a long time,” Dabb says. “She’s not sure who she can trust, but she starts to form certain bonds and relationships that make it clear that this is the place she needs to be.” One of those bonds will be with Claire, whom Kathryn Love Newton reveals saves Kaia’s life when they first come into contact. “She wants to keep Kaia safe,” Newton says. “It’s really important to her, and you’ll find out why.”

As for Kaia’s ability to walk between worlds, Newton says the story “does have a little more of a fantasy vibe” than Supernatural, though it still has what she calls the “core Supernatural dynamic.” As Berens puts it, they approached the spin-off with the attitude of: “What’s a show that’s like Supernatural but different?” And although one of the key differences is the fact that this show features women at its center, Rhodes says it’s not “Supernatural with girls.” Rather, as she puts it, “It’s Supernatural with heroes that happen to be female.”

But unlike Supernatural, Wayward features a much larger support system for the central characters, a key detail for the writers. “What is possible if you have more than just a sibling relationship to guide you through this process,” Berens says. “Could it be different? Could it be less psychologically and physically damaging than what we’ve seen Sam and Dean go through? That’s a really core question of the show.”

Speaking of Sam and Dean, there is a reason why they don’t just show up and help out. Rhodes promises, “It’s made very clear why this is happening without Sam and Dean, although there’s a beautiful opportunity for them to come visit.”

After all, Jody’s door is always open.

yall lesbos feel like every girl u meet that knows ur a lesbian is disgusted by your existence like just lookin at you makes them feel repulsed bc i do i am afraid i replicate the male gaze even though i know i dont i feel disgusting i love being a lesbian but it hurts so much sometimes when all youve been told is that youre disgusting and a monster

Is there a reasonable explation for this pic? Or is just me who find weird/out of nowhere a photographer ask two people to kiss? 

Put a legend that say “I asked them to kiss. I suppose love was in the air, and I was just lucky enough to be there”. is like REALLY??? 

You can make up something better than this, girl!

Yes, the pic was released when was right on time to make the fans excited for the new season when these characters were going to meet for the first time. But, back there when they were doing this photoshoot, what was the reason for Kit and Emilia’s kiss?

They were already thinking about making a Jon x Dany relationship’s hint to the public that it would only be released 4 years later? Did they know about Jon and Dany possible relationship for such long time? Could it be that Emilia and Kit happened to have such chemistry because they possibly were having a fling or something? Was it a Jon x Dany and/or Kit x Emilia hint?

“Love was in the air” only make it ridiculous…   

The fact that one (Emilia, Kit, HBO crew, interviewers, etc) talks about this makes me frustrated LOL

Unexpected Alliance

Request: “I have a request for Pennywise, lovely author! The reader was bullied by Bowers and his group, they accidentally killed her, and left under the Kissing Bridge. Pennywise helps her, because he feels her urge to have vengeance.on them. He’s happy about his insane, little girl. I want this to be pretty crazy and unstable, yet in their own way — lovely. Love your work! Keep it up, talented woman!🎈💝”

Pairing: Pennywise x Reader and slight Stan Uris x Reader

Warnings: Mentions of blood, death and violence

A/N: I currently have 9 requests in my inbox idk how many I will be able to complete today but since I get homework on weekdays for school I’ll probably only be able to post one imagine everyday throughout the week instead of 4 imagines in one day I’m sorry but I hope you all understand. 

You were beautiful to say the least and incredibly smart you had both beauty and brains. Every guy in Derry High School wanted to have you and every girl wanted to be you. For years ever since you were little you always rejected Henry Bowers, he wanted something with you but of course you didn’t. Over the years you had developed a crush on Stan Uris. 

Yes the Jewish handsome boy that sometimes got made fun of was the guy that had won your heart. You knew he also felt something for you because his friends would constantly tease him every time you were around him. They also confirmed that he was crushing on you and that Stan was just waiting for the right time to ask you out. Yay!

“Have a great summer Stan.” You smiled as you walked out of the school with him. It was finally summer break!

“Thanks you too I hope I’ll see you around?” He asked.

“Of course I’d love that.” You smiled.

“Would you like me to walk you home?” Stan asked.

As much as you wanted him to you noticed his friends all staring at him from across the street waiting on him or trying to read your lips to know what you were talking about. Who knows.

“No don’t worry about it go with your friends they’ve made it pretty obvious that they have a lot to talk to you about.” You giggled.

You were referring to the insane amount of questions the boys would ask him. What were you guys talking about? Did you ask her out yet? Are you going on a date? Will you be hanging out together over the summer? The list goes on. 

“No no it’s fine I can hang with them all later.” Stan said.

“Stan.” You said placing your hand on his shoulder before continuing to talk. “It’s okay don’t worry I can handle myself I’ll be fine.” You smiled.

Stan looked at you with a concerned look before he finally said, “Alright just please be safe and careful I’ll see you later?” He asked.

“Don’t worry I will and definitely.” You kissed his cheek and grinned like a cat when you noticed he was blushing like madly.

You winked at him before going down the school steps and making your way home. Not before glancing at Stan’s friends and saw that they were smirking at what had just went down, you giggled silently while shaking your head.

Unfortunately your excitement didn’t last long your wide smile faded when you heard Henry Bowers’ car make a loud screech sound as he stopped the car. You took off running as he stepped out of his car.

“Get over here you bitch!” He exclaimed as he took off running after you.

Your running didn’t last long because he tackled you to the ground before throwing you over his shoulder. You kicked and punched him trying to get him to let go of you. Fortunately he did. Unfortunately he threw you into the back of his car, the trunk more specifically and took off driving. What the hell.

You tried lifting the hood of the trunk but obviously it was no use. You whimpered in fear not knowing what he was going to do to you. Finally the car came to a stop, you heard Henry’s footsteps approach the trunk. He opened it and pulled you out of it grabbing your arm and your hair with his hand.

“Hurry up bitch let’s go!” He said angrily as he led you to the kissing bridge.

He pressed you up against the fence and pulled out his knife clicking it out of it’s case.

“Do you know why we’re here?” He asked.

“No.” You whimpered, 

“Well I’ll tell you why. You have been rejecting me for years constantly over and over again but then when little Stanley comes into the picture you FALL FOR HIM IMMEDIATELY AND GIVE HIM THE ATTENTION THAT I WANTED!” Henry exclaimed as he pressed the knife up against your neck.

“Because he’s more of a gentleman than you’ll ever be. He doesn’t terrorize kids or leads a gang full of assholes and morons. I’d rather be with him then you anyother day.” 

Henry raised his arm and slapped you across your face. You whimpered in pain as you grabbed your cheek you could feel a large bruise forming already.

“You’re going to fucking pay for that you bitch. If I can’t have you then no one can.” Henry raised the knife over his head. Oh hell no you weren’t about to die like this.

“No!” You exclaimed.

You raised your legs up to kick Henry causing him to fall on his back. Unfortunately for you the impact was so hard that you flipped over the wooden fence and tumbled down a large steep hill. You could feel the leaves, rocks, and wooden objects hitting your body as you continued to roll down. Once you finally came to a stop you were unconscious. 

Noticing this Henry ran inside of his car and took off leaving you to die all by yourself. Well that’s what he thought, far away but close enough to hear the dialogue that you and Henry had exchanged was heard by a clown. He made his way over to your unconscious body picking you up.

“Although your unconscious I can feel your anger raiding off of you. I’ll bring you back so you can finish him and his little friends off.” Pennywise smirked.

He went over to the small stream with running water, he set your body down and placed his hand on your chest trying to get your heart to pump. It took several tries but finally he did it. You gasped as you opened your eyes and flailed in the water. You stopped once you noticed who was looking at you, a clown. You backed off in fear walking backwards.

“It’s okay I’m not going to eat you.” He reassured.

“I know who you are why should I believe you!” You exclaimed.

“Because even though you died I didn’t eat you I could’ve but I didn’t okay.” Pennywise said.

“Well no one told you to revive me but here we are.” You said crossing your arms.

“A simple thank you could’ve been great. Now I’m starting to regret not eating you.” Pennywise huffed.

“Thank you there I said it now why did you save me?” You asked as you sat down on a large rock as you squeezed your hair trying to get the water out of your locks.

“I saw what that jerk Henry Bowers tried to do and did to you I could feel your anger so I was thinking I’d spare your life so you could get back at him.” Pennywise explained.

“So you want me to get back and him and maybe his friends as well so you can have your little all-you-can-eat buffet then go hibernate again?” You asked.

“Mhmm and that way I won’t have to feast on innocent little kids I can feast on the morons who don’t deserve to live.” He smiled.

“I think I’m going insane I’m actually thinking about accepting the offer.” You said shaking you head. 

“Well then accept it, he could’ve killed you and you would’ve never been with your precious Stanley Boy if I hadn’t saved you. You’re alive because of me so go and teach that Henry Bowers a lesson. You wouldn’t have been able to do that if he killed you.” Pennywise said as he placed his hands on your shoulders and whispered into your ear.

“Okay fine deal. I’ll take him and his little friends out then they’ll be all yours.” You stated.

“But what if his friends try to protect him?” Pennywise asked.

“If they try and protect him then we kill them.” 

“I like the sound of that who knew you had this in you.” Pennywise was fascinated he never knew that a sweet and gentle girl like you could have such a dark. mysterious and disturbing side. 

“Looks can be deceiving.” You smirked. “Now I better get going.” You continued.

“Leaving so soon?” Pennywise asked.

 “I’m supposed to meet up with Stan he is not going to be happy when he sees this.” You huffed.

“Okay partner I’ll see you around.” Pennywise said as he waved.

“Definitely.” You smirked as you walked away.

here are a bunch of great fics I’ve enjoyed and loved reading throughout the month of september. I recommend that you read these great fics in october, if you haven’t already!! also check out the MITAM Fic Fest and the HL Historical Exchange!

(all fics with a star are my favorites and if there are two stars then it was a favorite favorite)


1. The World Still Turns 21k **

They had their eyes on the stars.

Harry and Louis have known each other since they were tiny little boys, both wildly obsessed with airplanes, space, and the stars. More than twenty years later, Harry plans to propose to Louis, but when he wakes up, Louis is gone.

2. Sink Into Tomorrow 13k

For the past five years, she’s been tiptoeing carefully around the subject, steadfastly refusing to talk about the possibility, and putting up a front to hide what she was always terrified of feeling. Maybe it’s been a long time coming. Maybe Louis was just the final push she needed. She tries to see this less as a death sentence and more as an opportunity to tell the truth for once.

Harry is the new (supposedly heterosexual) freshman who gets convinced by pretty blue eyes and soft skin to join a club about body positivity and self-image. Louis is the definitely-not-male upperclassman who makes her come to terms with some things she’s been denying.

3. A Few Very Good Mistakes 12k

He almost wishes there were a better story.

“Fucked up pop star ends five day bender by wandering into a dive bar alone and passing out in public.” That would’ve generated press, he thinks, and if there’s one thing that’s constantly on his mind (or more accurately, on the mind of everyone else around him) it’s that all press is good press, and good press is good press but bad press is great press.

Besides, he’s 25 and trying to do the whole transition from boyband to solo pop star. He’s pretty sure a press-fueled meltdown is, like, a right of passage. The truth, alas, is a whole lot more boring.

Louis falls asleep in Harry’s bar. Harry takes him home to hang out.

single dad!jack meets pig-owning neighbor!bitty

<<Papa, look, a pig!>>

Jack straightened up from setting down the stack of moving boxes and followed Chloe’s line of sight. <<Is that…a leash?>> He asked, bewildered. Because, yes, in fact, the large, snorting pig was being walked down the sidewalk by a rather handsome man in a dirt-covered shirt and pants.

<<Can I pet it?>> Chloe asked, tugging at Jack’s shirt harder than he would have expected from a eight-year-old. She was, however, a Zimmermann, and thus could be moved to great feats of strength when properly motivated. <<Please?>>

“Alright,” Jack relented, taking her hand before she could dash across the street. “But you have to ask the man for permission–and introduce yourself. I know your mother taught you better manners than that.”

So imagine if Neil had a sibling he didn’t know existed. Just hear me out okay.

((this post seriously got away from me but I am definitely 100% not sorry))

He’s kidnapped and dragged to his dads house and they’re standing there ready to hack him piece from piece and Nathan calls for his guard upstairs and down comes this 10 year old with Lola’s hair and Nathan’s eyes and a set of bruises on her face and Neil just FREEZES.

(It could be a brother but I’m sticking with sister- you’ll see why)

And Neil doesn’t know WHY Nathan is bringing this kid - that looks like him- downstairs to watch a gruesome murder but she looks completely unsettled when she sees Neil and his half destroyed face. And she looks like she wants to step forward but the guard holds her back.

Nathan is rambling about her watching because she needs to know what would happen if she crosses him and Neil is so angry he can’t listen. He just keeps staring at her hoping that his expression is doing anything to tell her it’s okay, it’s okay, don’t be afraid, it’s okay. She starts crying as soon as Nathan is telling Neil what Lola is going to do to him.

baby fever - dad!tom

Summary: Tom reaaaaally wants to have a baby.

-when you and Tom got married, you planned on taking a year or two to enjoy married life together before you began thinking about starting a family

-it’s been 9 months tho and Tom has been hinting that it’s something he wants sooner rather than later

-just little things like always pointing out cute babies to you and saying things like “I can’t wait to do that with our kids”

-it gets worse at Christmas, spent in London this year, when you meet Tom’s cousin’s 10 week old baby girl for the first time

-his cousin and her husband are staying at a hotel nearby Tom’s parents’ house and they come over christmas eve along with all Tom’s family nearby

-everyone has already met the baby except for Tom and you so his cousin is holding her and saying, “these are your cousins, Tom and (y/n)” and Tom says “can I hold her?” and picks the baby up under her arms being really careful and making sure her head/neck is supported and saying “hiii babyyy” in that coo-ey baby voice as he settles her against his shoulder

-Tom was smitten he held that baby so much over the three days that his cousins were around

-after presents are opened he lays on the floor next to her while she’s just laying under one of those pack n play mat things kickin around at the little dangly things in her face and he’s just watching her with this wistful smile and you just know he wants a baby asap

-his cousin says something to you like “Tom looks right at home in dad mode. have you two thought about when you’ll start a family?” and you’re like “we’ve talked about it as something in the near future but I’m pretty sure after this weekend he’s gonna be on my case about it” bc look at him he’s like in love

-at one point you’re holding the baby and she falls asleep and you’re thinking okay she is freaking adorable but anyways Tom’s watching you fondly for a while and then comes over and puts a hand on your back and whispers in your ear, “you holding a baby is kind of turning me on” and you’re like “Tom” widening your eyes at him to tell him to shush

-when you guys leave after the holiday his dad says “start working on my grandchildren soon, will ya?” and his mom elbows him and is like “Dom, leave them alone” and turns to you guys and is like “don’t let him pressure you, take your time” and you just like laugh awkwardly

-and on the way to the airport Tom’s like “so what my dad said…maybe we should start thinking about it” and you turn to him and teasingly are like, “oh, I know you’ve been thinking about it already, baby whisperer”

-you visit your family back home over new year’s and your extended family has already left so you’re like phew just the parents and siblings no babies but then at one point during the weekend your sister goes “you know what this family could really use?” and you’re like “what” and she’s like “a baby” and she’s staring at you deadass and you’re like “thanks for the hint pal” and Tom’s just sitting there looking at you like see everyone agrees with me

-like two weeks later one of your best friends has her first baby and you go down to visit in the hospital and you text Tom a picture of the cutie and he responds “let’s have one”

-so when you get back home you’re telling Tom all about the new baby and after Tom’s like “I was serious when I said we should have one”

-and you’re like “now?” and he’s like “why not?” and so you have a looong conversation about life and careers and how you could make it work in the next year and half or so and the pressure you’re feeling from everyone to have a baby and whether or not you feel ready but at the end of it all you call and schedule an appointment to have your IUD removed in two weeks

-he’s with you when you call and he’s just like all smiley as you hang up the phone with your gyno’s office

-later that night you guys have some really great sex and afterwards he’s looking at you all dreamy-eyed and says “i can’t wait to have a baby with you” awW

-so you get your IUD removed and you’re keeping it to yourselves that you’re trying to get pregnant

-and all the trying-to-make-a-baby sex is like, really hot tbh, like it just has this greater purpose and makes you feel so connected and just mmm yeah it’s real good and you’re not stressin even though it’s not happening right away because you know it takes your body a bit to get back on track after all the years of birth control so you’re just enjoying the ride ya know

-like 3 months after you start trying, Tom’s parents and uncle are in town and you all go to dinner and the uncle is Dom’s brother, the one whose daughter had the cute baby who you met at Christmas, and Uncle Mike starts talking about his granddaughter and Tom just squeezes your knee under the table

-after a while Mike is like “Dom, are you bitter I got a grandchild before you did?” bc Mike is Dom’s younger brother and they had this race going in their heads I guess and Dom laughs but half seriously turns to you guys and says, “yep, still waiting”

-Tom without thinking goes “we’re working on it, Dad, relax” and his mom is like “you are?!” all happy and excited and you give him a lil side eye like dammit TOm 

-but they’re very happy to hear that you guys are trying and bc you know Tom’s mom will tell your mom if you don’t,  you casually slip it into a conversation with your mom over the phone the next day that you and Tom are trying to get pregnant and she’s so so happy too and starts gushing about how great a dad Tom will be and it makes you smile


dad!tom dad!tom dad!tom dad!tom ahhhhhhh sorry if this is a tease bc he’s not technically a dad yet in this but STILL its STARTING

also like we said earlier this is not the end of boyfriend!tom we still have lots of ideas and things to post we’re just skipping all around the timeline bc that’s how we like to do things

Okay but imagine a ModernAU!ATLA...

(Not my picture. Kudos to the artist Nymre because it looks amazing!)

…where Zuko and Azula are the popular kids with a cruel business man tycoon as they’re dad. Their parents are divorced and their dad won full custody of the kids (there was probably the bribing of a judge in there). Everyone thinks the siblings are just so cool and badass that they don’t even bother to actually talk to them in order to know that Azula and Zuko aren’t alike in any way.

Azula is Miss Queen Bee. She’s a black-belt in her after-school Martial Arts program and is known for never going easy on an opponent, not even beginners. She’s best friends with Cheer Captain Ty Lee and the apathetic Mai who isn’t in any clubs because that’s “too mainstream and boring.” Mai is also “dating” Zuko (a case of a childhood crush becoming a real relationship).

Many girls envy Azula for her money and her beauty. Others hate her for her being a grade A bitch. No one, except for maybe her brother, actually knows that she lacks in social skills. When she was young, she tried to gain her mother’s attention by practicing martial arts vigorously. She had no time for friends. Mai and Ty Lee are the kids of other wealthy business families, so it was only expected that they be friends. Azula is a teenager now. She wants to date but has no skills in talking to others and getting them to like her whatsoever.

Zuko was abused by their dad so he doesn’t bother going home. Instead he lives with his Uncle Iroh and works at the tea shop his uncle owns below their apartment. He complains all the time about working at a tea shop but he would never even consider quitting.

He also practices Martial Arts with his uncle in one of his uncle’s Martial Arts studio for free (“He’s a member of the White Lotus!”). When his uncle is not with him, he practices with dual swords. It all helps him with his anger management and his bad memories.

In school, he doesn’t talk to anyone (basically a Lone Wolf). People automatically associate him with his sister. He wishes they didn’t. He doesn’t do anything out of the required studies. He’s not in any clubs. He doesn’t kiss up to the teachers. He doesn’t hang out with friends. Honestly, he’s lonely but he would never admit it. Just like how he’ll never admit that he actually likes that annoyingly bubbly and hyper underclassman Aang who seems to have made it a ritual to visit Zuko in the library during the elder’s free period to talk to him bug him.

Aang is that underclassman that everyone likes. The cheerleaders keep trying to recruit him to their squad because he’s so bubbly and loud and nice (and he’s seriously considering joining because cheerleading doesn’t sound too bad). He always wears that hooded vest jacket with a blue arrow running down the back and on the hood and it gets on his friend Katara’s nerves because “Do you even wash it?!”

He is best friends with siblings Katara and Sokka, Sokka’s girlfriend Suki, and even Toph, the tough tsundere tomboy in his grade who always gets in trouble with the teachers because she takes off her shoes in the middle of class (“Shoes are weird-feeling!”). He wears a bison necklace around his neck, and if anyone asks about it, he says he’s family’s symbol is a bison and he’s just showing family pride. He has a pet monkey too (nobody bothers to ask why). He lives with his parents but hangs out more with his godfather Gyatso, who is a family friend and a hardcore Buddhist. He wears matching beaded bracelets with Gyatso to showcase their close bond.

Toph is the blind daughter of a wealthy family who wants to treat her as a fragile doll. She hates that, which is probably why she became friends with Aang. Aang was the first person to treat her as a person and not a blind little girl or a rude classmate. She used to have a crush on Sokka but got over it when he started dating Suki because they actually go good together. Instead she settles for teasing the couple to no end. Toph will just randomly show up at her friends’ place because she’s “bored” (usually she actually just doesn’t want to go home to her parents but she’ll never say so). She gets her kicks off of teasing others (no one is safe).

Katara and Sokka come from a middle-low class family but they don’t mind it. They have a great father and grandmother. Their mom died when they were little so Katara wears their mom’s necklace to remember her by.

Sokka is on the soccer team. He thinks he’s just so cool but actually he’s just a dork. His first love was a girl named Yue. Sadly Yue died years ago from cancer. Sokka misses her, sure, but he doesn’t let it keep him from living his life. He was a ladies’ man for a while before meeting his match in the form of Suki, the girls lacrosse team’s Captain. They started dating after a month or two. Since then, they’ve been attached at the hip (that grossly cute couple that everyone is lowkey jealous of).

Katara is the “mom” of their friend group. She’s always worrying about her friends and do things for them even though they tell her not to. She knits them things in her free time. She’s a member of the swim team. She can also be oblivious when it comes to guys. Many of their guy friends like her, including Aang. She only dated one guy, though; Jet. He was a jerk and has basically made her weary of dating anyone else.

At one point, Aang manages to add Zuko into their friend group by bringing (dragging) the elder with him to one of their hang outs. Katara couldn’t believe it because Zuko was the only guy Katara gave a glance to (she kind of thought he was cute). But Katara didn’t bother trying to flirt because Zuko is “dating” Mai (honestly the couple has been growing apart for a while).

The group bothers visits Zuko on his shifts at his Uncle Iroh’s place. Uncle Iroh and Toph become good friends (she now often goes there by herself to talk to Iroh when she doesn’t want to go home). Uncle Iroh and one of the tea shop’s regulars, June, ship Zutara hard. It doesn’t help that the two involved are starting to like each other.

Eventually Zutara does become cannon (like it should have in the show but whatever, not like I’m salty or anything). At first Mai was angry but she got over it. After a while she started dating Ty Lee and revealed to everyone that she was bisexual.

(That’s all I got so far, but can you imagine it?)

It’s been so long since we’ve left each other, how I miss the taste of your warm smile. I realized how much I loved you when I let you go. As I try reassuring myself that I will meet you again I look through cheesy love quotes, the kind that can warm a girls heart on a bitter winter night. I come across something that tells me “If you love somebody, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours. And if they don’t, they never were.” I started thinking about all the times that my thoughts swirled around my delicate mind like candy, the candy that was addictive, you felt that you could never let go of. The same way I felt like I could never let you go but I did, so I let you live on in my mind.

The ticking of the clock is the only sound in the grey hall where Magnus and Alec sit in uncomfortable plastic chairs. The place vaguely reminds Magnus of an Institute - it’s bland and almost dreary in its neutral tones, where the smallest noise is expected to have an echo. Someone has made an effort to brighten up the place by setting out a couple bouquets of cheap flowers, now dusted over and looking even more miserable.

Magnus glances down at his loosely twined hands, the rings on his fingers reflecting the bright halogen lights from above. They haven’t been waiting for that long, maybe twenty or so minutes, but it feels like much more. Magnus has learned patience over his years, so he sits calmly, takes off an invisible piece of lint from his grey suit pants.

Alec, on the other hand, is visibly anxious. He sits for a moment only to stand back up, his right hand shaking like he’s trying to get the anxiety off of him, sticky and unrelenting. Magnus’ eyes follow him as he wanders over to the sad flowers to pick up a leaflet with some smiling face on the cover. Without opening it, he sets it back down, crosses his arms, uncrosses them again, sighs.

OH, TO BE ALONE WITH YOU (PT. 1)

Pairing: Stenbrough with minor Reddie on the side

Word Count: 3,986

Prompt: Stan Uris moves to Derry, Maine following the death of his father and gets a job babysitting a little boy named Georgie who just so happens to have a very attractive older brother. (Modern High School AU)

Warnings: Mention of death, depression (not a major theme), anti-Semitism, struggles with faith

Link to part two: https://jamespottev.tumblr.com/post/166443144647/how-would-you-feel-if-i-told-you-i-love-you

__________

Sometimes, Stanley Uris didn’t know what was up and what was down. Sometimes, it felt like the world was moving but he was stuck in the same position, day after day. And it sucked. His mother thought that a new start would be good for them, that it would help them move on.

Stan wanted to scream. He wanted to call bullshit on her logic. It wasn’t that he didn’t mind moving. He wasn’t exactly popular back at his old high school in Bangor ( once upon a time, his father had asked him if it was because of them being Jewish – but it wasn’t an anti-Semitic thing, aside from the occasional, always unfunny, holocaust joke, it was more so the depression thing and the OCD thing and the gay thing that drove people away) so it wasn’t like he was going to be all that missed. Even his Jewish friends didn’t seem like they were gonna miss him that much. And it bothered Stan how little he cared about it.

But after his dad died, everything just seemed so… pointless. His father, a man who had never smoked a day in his life, ended up dying of lung cancer. It made Stan furious. At the world. At God. At everything. After watching his father shrivel up into a shell of what he had once been, Stan’s already complicated relationship with religion had turned sour. It infuriated him that his father could be dying and still praising that almighty presence above. Stan wasn’t even sure if he believed anymore.

“Stanley,” his mother’s voice called. “Come on, you’re going to be late!”

Gulping, Stan gave himself a once over and straightened the collar of his shirt before grabbing his backpack. As he left his room and shut the door, he found himself cringing. So, he went back, turned the bedroom light on and then off before shutting his door. Stan repeated that three more times before he was satisfied. It made him feel sick, wrong.

“I think you should start going back to therapy,” his mother told him on the ride to school.

“Mom—”

“No arguments, Stanley,” she said, her voice sharp like the cracking of a whip. “I know you, I know my son. You’re not okay, sweetheart. All I want is for you to be happy. I don’t want to send you off to college in two years with you…”

She trailed off and sighed. Stan could tell that if she hadn’t been driving she would’ve pressed a small kiss to the top of his forehead and hugged him tightly. Stan licked his lips and closed his eyes. He hated how unhappy his mother was. He despised that part of it was caused by him.

“I’ll see you tonight, yeah?” Andrea Uris said, looking at her pale, skinny son.

“Yeah,” Stan agreed, nodding.

“We can talk about you getting that job. How’s that sound?”

Stan smiled at that. Since his freshman year of high school, he had been begging for a job. He liked the idea of working – the responsibility, the experience, the money that he could save up to buy all the books he’d ever want to read. Stan just really wanted a job. He wanted something to do with his life.

And he also needed to start saving up for college. His father had been a Rabbi and his mother was a kindergarten teacher, so it wasn’t like there was a lot of money in either of those professions. If he didn’t want to leave college with an obscene amount of debt, Stan would have to save money while working his ass off for good grade.

“Hi, I’m Stan Uris,” Stan said in a quiet voice to the lady sitting at the receptionist desk.

“Oh, the new boy!” the receptionist said in a too-loud, too-cheerful voice.

Stan winced a little and smiled.

“Here’s your schedule, and your student guide will be down any minute to take you around!”

The receptionist had an odd accent that Stan wasn’t very fond of, and when she snapped her gum he thought his head might explode.

A minute later, a very clean cut looking black boy with broad shoulders, short hair, and a wide smile walked into the office.

“Hey, you must be Stan,” he said, walking straight over to Stan and offering his hand to shake. “I’m Mike.”

“Hi,” Stan said, shaking Mike’s hand. “It’s nice to meet you.”

As it turned out, Stan and Mike had all the same classes which was why Mike was chosen to give Stan the school tour. Within five minutes, Stan had decided that he liked Mike a lot. Mike was soft spoken, intelligent, and kind. He might have looked like all the football players at Stan’s old school that gave him hell for being gay, but Mike was nothing like that.

So, maybe Derry wouldn’t be that bad.

At lunch, Mike led Stan past the table filled with boys wearing the same kind of jacket as Mike and towards a different table in the corner of the room. At that table sat a very pretty girl with freckles spattered across every bit of visible skin and short cropped red hair. Beside her was a broad boy with dark blonde hair and a shy smile. Another boy sat across from them, lanky and thinly muscled with thick glasses and rather gorgeous dark hair. His arm was slung around the shoulders of a shorter boy with neatly combed chocolate curls. It was a ragtag bunch, but as they greeted Mike with wide smiles Stan could tell that they all loved each other a lot.

“Hey guys,” Mike said, sitting down and gesturing at the empty chair for Stan. “This is Stan, he’s new. Stan, this is Bev, Ben, Eddie, and Richie— where’s Bill?”

“Out sick,” Richie, the boy with glasses, snorted, ducking his face into the crook of Eddie’s neck.

Richie’s body convulsed with laughter Stan didn’t really understand. He stayed silent and began unpacking his lunch.

“What did you do to him?” Mike sighed, looking towards Bev.

“Hey, he agreed to drink with us,” Bev said defensively.

“They’re ridiculous,” Mike murmured to Stan, drawing a small smile from the new boy. “Don’t hold them against me?”

__

“So, I found a job for you,” Andrea told Stan that night after setting out dinner.

“Yeah?” Stan asked.

He held his breath for a moment, unsure if he was willing to trust his mother’s judgement on this.

“Yes. A woman named Sharon at my work was saying how she needs a babysitter for her son Georgie on Thursdays and Fridays,” Andrea said, stabbing her fork into her salad.

“Babysitting?” Stan asked, trying his best to hide his annoyance. “Mom. I don’t want to babysit.”

“It’s fifteen dollars an hour, Stanley,” Andrea said. “Sharon said it would be for at least five hours each night, so that’s at least a hundred and fifty dollars every week.”

Stan quickly did the math. If he kept fifty dollars every week for himself ( though, he didn’t have friends or much of a social life so why would he really need fifty dollars a week to do things? Well, Mike and his friends had been welcoming enough… maybe he’d finally have some friends… ) he could put away a hundred bucks each week. If he kept that consistent for two years ( and who knew what this kid’s parents would need over school breaks and the summer ) Stan could have a significant amount of money saved when he needed to get to college.

Suddenly, babysitting didn’t seem like such a bad idea.

“So, when do I start?” Stan asked.

Andrea beamed at her son.

“I have her number written down. You can call her after dinner and ask.”

__

As it turned out, Sharon Denbrough needed Stan to start ASAP. And tomorrow was Friday, meaning that Stan would be babysitting ten-year-old Georgie from 5:00 to 11:00.

When Stan shuffled into school, head down, he went straight to his locker. The girl to his left and her friends shot him a weird look, though Stan wasn’t all that sure why. He wasn’t that weird looking.

“Stan!” Mike’s voice boomed cheerfully.

Stan looked up and smiled at the approaching boy. Mike was walking with Ben and a boy Stan didn’t meet yesterday. But, boy, did he wish he had. The stranger was tall ( probably a little over six-feet, which definitely didn’t make Stan a little weak in the knees — no siree! ) and had light brown hair combed and styled very neatly. And his eyes—they were the bluest blue Stan had ever seen.

“Hi Mike, Ben,” Stan said in his typical quiet fashion, quickly glancing at the other boy before shifting his eyes down to the textbook in his arms.

“Stan, this is Bill. He was sick yesterday,” Ben said. “Richie mentioned you and Bill was anxious to meet the new kid on the block.”

Both Bill and Mike snorted quietly as Ben’s mouth lifted into a small smirk. Stan didn’t get the joke.

“It’s nice to meet you, Stan,” Bill said.

His words were slow and deliberate, and Stan really liked that.

“You too, Bill,” Stan replied, hoping that he wasn’t blushing.

If he was, no one said anything.

At lunch time, Richie clapped Stan on the shoulder and loudly proclaimed that his algebra teacher was a homophobic piece of shit.

“Why is he homophobic, Rich?” Bev asked, smirking at the boy.

“He told me I would never accomplish anything in life and is making me serve detention on Monday! This is gay oppression!” Richie exclaimed, flabbergasted.

Stan chuckled quietly.

“So, Stan, do you want to see Kingsman with us tonight?”

Stan’s heart bloomed within his chest, filling him with a warmness he had never felt before. He sighed, silently cursing his need for a job.

“I can’t,” Stan said, scratching behind his ear. “I have to babysit tonight.”

The rest of the group shut up about the movies after that. Stan realized that they were doing it for him—so he wouldn’t feel bad about missing out. The thought made him smile.

As a matter of fact, he was still smiling about it as he walked to Georgie Denbrough’s house.

“You must be Stan,” a tall, handsome man said with a warm smile as he opened the door. “It’s nice to meet you, son. I’m Zack Denbrough, Georgie’s dad.”

“It’s nice to meet you as well, sir,” Stan said politely, shaking his hand.

“Georgie!” Zack yelled up the stairs. “Come down, please!”

Seconds later, a small boy was sprinting down the stairs with a manic smile on his face, laughing as a tall, slightly muscled, shirtless boy ( Georgie’s brother, Stan assumed ) chased after him. Stan froze when he saw that the boy was Bill from school.

“Georgie, g-give me my sh-shirt!” Bill yelled.

Georgie was laughing still, loudly. The laughter was echoing around the house. Georgie and Bill sprinted past Stan without sparing him a second glance. A moment later, there was a loud scream followed by laughter as Bill, while laughing, called Georgie a twerp.

“My sons are rather… hyperactive,” Zack told Stan with an apologetic glance. “Once Bill leaves, Georgie will calm down, though. The two rile each other up.”

Stan swallowed thickly and nodded. His throat felt very dry, and his hands were beginning to itch. Slowly and deliberately, he dragged his blunt nails up and down the material of jeans that covered the outside of his thighs.

“Georgie, come meet your babysitter,” Zack said, walking out of the entrance hall and into the kitchen. “And, Bill, for God’s sake, put on a shirt.”

After a second’s deliberation when Stan seriously considered booking it out of the Denbrough house, he made his way into the kitchen. He caught Bill’s eyes and gulped.

“Stan! Hey!” Bill exclaimed happily, pulling a black t-shirt over his head. “When you said you had to babysit, I didn’t realize you’d be babysitting Georgie. I thought you had a younger brother or sister.”

“No,” Stan said, shaking his head and trying to remember not to stare at Bill. “I’m an only child.”

“Ooh, I wish,” Bill chuckled, sticking his tongue out at Georgie who reciprocated the motion.

Stan laughed dryly.

It wasn’t long before Zack and Sharon left for their date night, letting Stan know that they left forty dollars on the counter for him to order food and that he was welcome to keep the change. Bill was still there when his parents left.

While Georgie was showering, Stan took his opportunity to talk to Bill.

“So, uh, why aren’t you babysitting your brother?” Stan asked.

Really, Stan?’ he thought to himself. ‘What a stupid fucking question.’

Bill’s face went a little pink and he began to rub the back of his neck.

“Yeah, I’m not really allowed to do that anymore,” Bill said, his words paired with an awkward laugh. “Last time I babysat Georgie, it was pouring r-ruh-rain and I let him go outside, and he ended up getting wicked sick. My p—parents were really angry with me.”

Stan hadn’t noticed Bill’s stutter earlier. He didn’t say anything about it, though. Instead, he merely smiled a little.

“Well, if I’m ever babysitting Georgie and it rains, I’ll make sure not to let him go out.”

Bill threw his head back and laughed loudly. As his laughter died down, he bumped his shoulder softly against Stan’s and bit down on his lip. Yet again, Stan was gulping because of Bill Denbrough.

“I should get going,” Bill said, a look of regret crossing over his face. He stood up and patted Stan on the shoulder, but his hand lingered for a moment. “I’ll catch you later, Stan. I’ll probably be home before my parents.”

Georgie was a cute kid, and very sweet. He made a lot of meme jokes, which he told Stan he had learned from Richie. One time this past summer, Georgie told Stan, he ran into Bill’s room and dabbed with two fidget spinners in his hands. When Bill found out that Richie had been the one to tell Georgie to do it, Bill didn’t speak to Richie for a day and blocked him on all forms of social media.

At 9:00, Stan had to put Georgie to bed. After that, he had two hours to spare before he got to leave. And considering he was in someone else’s home, he had no idea what to do. So, he just grabbed a book from his bag and sat down in their living room to read.

Bill came home at 9:30, and when he saw Stan curled up on his couch reading a book on birds ( of all things ), he couldn’t help but laugh a little.

“What?” Stan asked, a little defensively.

“Nothing,” Bill assured him, sitting down next to him on the couch. “It’s just— well, a book on birds?”

“I happen to like birds,” Stan said, eyes narrowed. “They’re interesting.”

“Yeah? How so?” Bill asked, genuinely curious.

And so, for the next hour and a half, Stan talked to Bill about all different kinds of birds and the best places in Maine to go bird watching. And Bill seemed really interested too, he was asking questions and just looked completely earnest. By the time Sharon and Zack came back home, Stan hadn’t even realized that it was 11:00.

“I noticed you didn’t drive here,” Bill said, sneaking up on Stan as he put his coat and shoes on. “D-do you want me to drive you h-h-home?”

Stan almost protested, but he was feeling selfish. He wanted to spend more time with Bill, even if it was only for a ten-minute car ride.

“Thanks, Bill,” Stan murmured once Bill pulled into his driveway. “I’ll see you Monday.”

“Wait,” Bill exclaimed, grabbing Stan’s wrist. “Give me your number.”

Bill wiggled his phone in front of Stan’s face, blue eyes wide. Stan thought his face was going to split in two from how big his smile was. Eagerly ( maybe a little too eagerly, but Stan didn’t know much about this kind of thing ), Stan punched his number into Bill’s phone. If he was a more confident kid, he might have put some kind of witty, suggestive emoji next to his contact name… but Stan wasn’t like that.

“So, who’s the boy?” Andrea asked with a coy smirk on her face, watching as her blushing son stumbled his way backwards into the house, waving goodbye to the boy who was sitting in his car.

“There— there’s no boy. What are you talking about?” Stan blustered.

Andrea rolled her eyes.

“Stan, I’m your mother. You’re supposed to tell me these things.”

Stan sighed and relented, rolling his eyes.

“His name’s Bill,” Stan said.

“Do you like him?”

“I met him this morning, Mom!”

“Okay. So, what?”

Stan groaned, rubbing his eyes.

“He’s Georgie’s older brother and offered to drive me home because I don’t have a car. That’s all.”

Andrea hummed suspiciously, but didn’t press Stan further.

“My brother thinks you’re hot.”

Georgie’s statement was so bluntly presented that Stan choked on the slice of pizza he was eating.

“I heard him talking with Bev and Mike about it the other day,” Georgie added, grinning at Stan.

“Oh,” Stan said in a high, uneven voice. “That’s nice.”

“Do you think he’s hot?”

Stan’s face was burning.

“Georgie—”

“What?” Georgie asked, putting on his best angel face.

“I’m not talking about your brother with you,” Stan snorted. “And you’re ten, which is just— no.”

“I’m gonna be eleven next month,” Georgie whined.

Stan wasn’t amused.

“Eat your pizza, Georgie.”

__

“Do you think he’s hot yet?”

“Georgie, you need to go to bed!” Stan exclaimed, trying his best not to laugh at Georgie’s persistence.

All night, he had been pestering Stan about his thoughts on Bill. Like, yeah, Stan thought Bill was hot. But he wasn’t about to tell Georgie that. If he said anything, Georgie would definitely repeat it back to Bill ( Stan wasn’t ignorant to Georgie’s hero-worship of his brother ) and then Bill would think Stan was weird. Though, Georgie did say that Bill thought he was hot.

“Did he really say— agh! Never mind! Go to bed!”

Stan seriously considered throwing himself in front of a bus then and there. Was he seriously just about to ask a ten-year old about that? UGH!

Georgie laughed.

Bill arrived home not long after that, grinning. Georgie shut his mouth about Stan finding Bill hot.

__

Three weeks after Georgie asked Stan if he thought Bill was hot, Stan had the weekend off. Bill’s parents were going away for a few nights for their anniversary and Georgie was going to stay with Sharon’s sister in the next town over. That meant Bill had the house to himself.

If Bill was a different kid, he would’ve been instantly sending out invites to a party. But Bill was Bill, and he wasn’t like that. Instead, he invited Stan over for a movie night.

Andrea drove Stan over to Bill’s house and quickly lectured Stan on practicing safe sex. Stan wanted to die.

“Mom! Holy, crap!” Stan exclaimed, his face beet red. “It’s not— we’re not— no! Anyways, the rest of our friends are gonna be there!”

The rest of their friends ( ‘The Losers Club’ they were often referred to by a senior named Henry Bowers and his gang of asshole friends, but Stan didn’t pay them much attention ) were, in fact, not there.

“I didn’t realize it would be just us,” Stan muttered, glancing around Bill’s dark house.

“Oh,” Bill said, rubbing his neck. “I didn’t— are you upset?”

“No,” Stan said, smiling. “I just thought— you know what? It’s not important.”

Bill smiled that breathtaking smile of his and Stan found himself wishing for a puff of Eddie’s inhaler.

“Richie was saying I should throw a party this weekend,” Bill snorted. “And Bev was saying we should utilize my empty house and my father’s never ending liquor supply and get drunk.”

Stan didn’t think that sounded too awful. Well, the getting drunk part at least… so long it was only their group of seven. He wouldn’t want other people around. Just the seven of them… ‘the lucky seven’ had Mike called them a couple weeks ago. The thought made Stan smile a bit.

“Would getting drunk be that bad?” Stan asked Bill, a smile on his face.

“Not if it was just the two of us,” Bill replied easily in his slow deliberate voice.

The voice that made Stan’s knees go weak and stomach tie in knots.

Not if it was just the two of us… Stan flushed a deep red.

“So, I ordered us pizza,” Bill said, gesturing to a box on the table. “Normally I go with pepperoni or barbeque chicken, but I know it’s not kosher for Jewish people to eat pig or meat and cheese — that’s the right word, right? Kosher?”

Stan had barely thought about his faith in months. It had seemed so insignificant, so unreal for him after his dad died. And when it came to eating kosher— well, that had been the way he lived his life for the past sixteen years so he never even really thought about it. But Bill had thought about it.

Stan suddenly felt the urge to kiss Bill, but he had enough will power to stop himself.

“Is regular cheese fine?”

Bill was being so casual, acting as if nothing was wrong. Well, not that anything was wrong… but he had just made a significant impact on Stan and was acting as if nothing had happened.

“Cheese is perfect,” Stan said softly.

Bill beamed and Stan felt like his heart was going to explode out of his chest.

Stan really wanted to kiss Bill. But he didn’t.

After they ate their pizza, Bill suggested they watch something. And by something, Stan knew that Bill meant Game of Thrones. Bill was a die-hard Thrones fan and nearly had an aneurism when he found out that Stan didn’t watch it. Last week, he finally convinced Stan to start watching it. Stan was already on season three.

Bill sat down next to Stan, but in an unnecessarily close way. Stan sat curled against the arm of the couch and Bill sat right down beside him. There was only a small inch or so of space between them. Stan said nothing because he didn’t want Bill to move away.

“You know, I feel bad for Theon,” Stan confessed.

Bill didn’t say anything.

“I mean, I understand why he did what he did. He just wanted his father’s approval. I don’t agree with his actions, but I understand the motive. You know? And, wow, he really does not deserve… that.”

“You’re cute.”

Stan’s eyes went wide, and so did Bill’s. From how red Bill’s face was, Stan could tell he most definitely did not mean to say that out loud.

“Thanks,” Stan found himself saying. “You too.”

And then he kissed Bill. Holy shit. He was kissing Bill. And Bill was kissing him back.

WOW! WOW! WOW!

Even for a first kiss, it was pretty awesome. Stan had no idea what he was doing with his mouth, but Bill seemed to have some experience so he took charge. His right hand went around the back of Stan’s neck, while the other propped himself up against the arm of the couch that Stan’s back was pressed against.

Stan was in paradise, his hands wrapped around Bill and digging into Bill’s soft hair.

When Bill pulled away, they were both panting, gasping for air. Bill’s eyes were peering into Stan’s, and both boys smiled before Stan pulled Bill’s face down, crushing his lips to Bill’s once more.
