Anonymous said to buckykingofmemes: Ok but talking about salsa and swing I gotta ask if Steve’s done any dance sketches, it is in my contract as a social dance nerd
steve actually has a ton of dance sketches. he used to come with me when i wanted to go dancing and use it as life drawing practice. said it helped him get the unusual poses better.
anyway, this sketch is a really old one, from back before the war. that lovely lady im dancing with is my baby sister becca. becca and i used to do swing competitions together, and we were an unstoppable team, since we’d been dancing together since before she could walk. we danced with other people a lot, but when it came to competitions becca and i were pure magic. i was a pretty big guy and she was always tiny, so i could whip her through steps and lifts like lightning. and she always trusted me to catch her, since id been tossing her in the air for as long as she could remember, and never once let her drop. the two of us would invent lifts nobody else in brooklyn would dare to try.
sometimes we roped stevie into helping, because he wasnt much bigger than becca, and we didnt have mirrors to practice with. so if we wanted to see how a move looked, we’d teach stevie becca’s lift and she’d watch and figure out what needed changing. steve had no rhythm at all, but he was usually game for the lifts. later, in the star spangled show, they tried to make use of some of those, but he still didnt have the steps down, so it never worked out.
after i got drafted, becca kept dancing. by the time she was thirty, she held the title of brooklyns longest-running swing queen, with fifteen consecutive wins.
Sometimes I wonder if they’ve taken after the two sides of me: goofy but introspective. Luna begings reading, and I’m engrossed, not even realizing i’ve eaten my whole Pop-Tart until I try to shove an invisible piece in my mouth. “Zhora forgot her ray gun and fluffy mallows on the hovercraft,” Luna reads loudly, “and she needed to hurry. Dash was waiting.” Kinney scrunches her her nose. “Where are the ghosts or the trolls? Is there a witch at least?” “Just aliens.” Luna taps Kinney’s nose. “Beep, beep.” Kinney barely flinches. She says matter-of-factly. “Ghosts are better than aliens.” Luna shrugs and flips a page in her journal. “Everyones likes different sorts of things.” She glances at me, and when she starts smiling, I realize that I’ve been beaming at my eight-year-old like she’s the empress of an intergalactic universe– and i’m just a little astronaut floating by, witnessing this beauty. Luna Hale might not have any friends outside of relatives, but she has more confidence at eight-years-old than I did hen I was twenty. Never ashamed. My daughter is never ashamed. “You made mommy cry,” Kinney says and starts drying my tears with her Darth Vader pajama shirt. “Happy tears,” I tell them, wiping at my wet eyes, tears overflowing. Luna touches her Hulk slipper to my Thor slipper and singsongs, “Fan fiction.” She makes a smooching noise, Hulk kissing Thor.
“Great, ten past twelve at Euston station. All I wanted when the train we were booked on left exactly one minute ago,” Eden looked at her companion, blame written all over her face.
“Shower,” he reminded her.
“Look,” Harry began to walk to find the ticket office. “We’ll ask to see if we can just exchange them for the next train and if not then we just pay up and live off beans on toast when we come back after New Year, not like we haven’t struggled before.”
Hi! Big fan! I was wondering if you can do a story about Newt x reader as in how they met in Hogwarts, the development of their relationship (from friendship to lovers), how he was going to propose to her but she gets killed by Grindelwald’s followers in order to protect Newt. He is knocked out and when he wakes up, he’s completely destroyed. However, later on the readers ghost comes to visit and tells him everything will be ok and so will he. I just need a angsty yet beautiful story please 😭
❤ This is going to be a multiple part story! Hope you don’t mind, anon! ^_^
◘ I had some time this morning before work to do some writing and I was super eager to start this one! So here ya go! Part ooonneee!
Sliding down on to the couch in the Hufflepuff common room, you let out a sigh of relief. You had finally finished your assignments and were so ready to relax for the weekend.
It was your first year at Hogwarts and though you had made friends, most of them weren’t exactly the kind of people you’d hang out with a lot. Most days you spent your time in the library or walking around the grounds near the lake enjoying the scenery while you sat beneath your favorite tree reading any book you could find about magical creatures.
yes, can you please recommend some multiple chapfter fics? i'm really focused right now for some reason and i want to read! thank you!
For reference, I’ve bolded the fic title and I’ve also linked the writers’ masterlists so just find part one and go from there. Feel free to yell about your feels to me with any of these because I understand. It’s a lot.
Most of these are are Lin x Reader because I read them the most. A little searching and you’ll find some for every other character/cast because this community is so talented and generates so much content, it’s crazy.
@letsgiggletogetherAs The Radio Plays will also make you question your emotions about everything. I have a desire for someone to write me love letters even more because of this. (Part 2 responsible for @teamgtnw) (I’ve linked part 4 here but Part 1 is linked at the top of the post, I’m not sure why but Cass’ masterlist confuses me a lot - maybe it’s just desktop? I don’t know technology is hard.)
I’ve tried to find curate a list that have some finished works and some still in progress! Let me know when you need more (because there’s so many more)! :)
This post is purely speculative and I am aware that it is highly unlikely to happen but I did want to share the results of a massive Crowdfunding Meta:
I was discussing the discovery of the “Season Save” for each Season and when it occurred and we realized that the answer to the Season’s problem is never put into play until the Season Finale, but the way to save the Season is typically hinted at/foreshadowed episodes before:
In S1, they used hydrazine to create a Ring of Fire in Episode 113, but hydrazine and it’s explosive capabilities are first introduced in 109.
In S2, they irradiated Mt. Weather with Clarke and Bellamy pulling the lever, but Clarke pulling a lever (and introducing radiation to the Mountain) is foreshadowed in 201, Clarke put her hand on a lever and Jasper said if she pulled the lever everyone would die.
In S3, Clarke unites the Flame and the City of Light chip to destroy ALIE and the CoL, but ALIE 2.0 (the Flame) is hinted at in 306 with Raven asking ALIE why there’s a second version of her code and Murphy’s discovering of the wall art detailing Becca’s return to Earth.
In trying to find the Season Save for S3, however, I actually hit on a conversation between Jaha and Murphy in episode 301:
Murphy: “She’s the one who ended the world!”
Jaha: “Wrong. She didn’t end the world, she saved it.“
Jaha also says later: "With the added power, A.L.I.E. Was able to complete the work she began with her creator a hundred years ago.”
Which made me think:
Was the City of Light always the plan? Because the above sentence from Jaha clearly states that ALIE completed work, so perhaps when Jaha says ALIE saved the world maybe he meant it literally? She saved the world? In digitalform?
And that ^^^ made me think about ALIE’s original purpose. What was it? We know her core command was to “Make Life Better”. But what was the actual problem she was trying to solve? ALIE identified the problem as “too many people”, but this is obviously not what Becca intended. So then I began to think was Becca using ALIE to create a map of the world (i.e. the City of Light) that could be used as what was essentially the Matrix, and if so why did she even think that was necessary?
Because Becca and ALIE had almost completed their work on the City of Light before Becca locked her away and she didn’t expect ALIE to launch the nuclear missiles when the began working on the City of Light.
So Sam raised the question of when creation of the City of Light began. And that’s when Cadogen entered the equation.
We already know that Becca and Cadogen were connected. Maybe Becca was a part of his doomsday cult? We know that The 100 has a fascination with the numbers “13″ and “12″, with 13 typically being an unlucky number, 12 Space Stations-One blown out of the sky, 12 Clans-Arkadia being the 13th, etc. What if there is a “13th” level to Cadogan’s cult.
What if that 13th level is where the Cryo Chambers (this speculation was original @rosymamacita‘s) are located, and what if the the 13th level isn’t just Cryo chambers, it’s Cryo Chambers AND the City of Light chip combined. Therefore when people were in the Cryo Chambers and sleeping they could still interact with one another in the City of Light.
I hit a brief roadblock when thinking about the fact that Cadogen seemed to be anti-tech in the Second Dawn video Bellamy, Jaha and Clarke watched in 403, but that doesn’t really seem to be possible when one considers that his symbol is found on Becca’s microscope in her lab and even in the bunker that serves as her crypt.
Which led me to the idea that perhaps Cadogen was “anti-tech” for the purpose of raising money. He used fear-mongering to create the anti-tech hype in order to get more money to fund Becca’s work, in the articles Sam and Gina pulled from 403 people were paying up to 10,000,000 dollars to unlock the 12th seal.
And that thought led to another thought:
What if Abby’s line about Becca using the radiation chamber to test cures for cancer wasn’t a throwaway line? Remember, in the City of Light you can get rid of all of your deformities? Why build that into its programming without a reason? What if the Cryo/CoL situation was initially being used to save cancer patients who might have been getting close to death?
Which prompted the following in Sam: Maybe the City of Light was the original “make life better” plan, because it was a place to go to get rid of deformities and pain. When Becca asks ALIE how she plans to fix the root problem, she’s EXPECTING her to say virtual reality, instead she says “too many people” and so the CoL never gets finished because Becca locks ALIE away.
Perhaps it was meant to be “make life better for people suffering from ailments" not just “make life better”.
More from Sam on this line of thinking: What if the CoL was originally something you could visit? Like if you had loved ones stored in there, you could spend a couple hours with them before returning to the real world? But ALIE decided that the CoL was better than the real world so when she developed it without Becca, she made the chip unremovable.
Chris (Becca’s boyfriend) had to have been working with Becca and Cadogen. When his friends find him (the ones who were there when ALIE showed Becca her new avatar coincidentally) they say: “I knew it. The news was wrong. It wasn’t China. The stupid son of a bitch let A.L.I.E. out.” What if Cadogen’s followers were getting antsy because they were funneling money and not seeing any results? Cadogen gave his anti-tech speech only 2 weeks before ALIE launched the nukes, what if Cadogen released ALIE and only planned to launch one nuke to show his followers that the threat was real and so they should keep paying?
Either way I know we haven’t seen the end of Cadogen and I suspect we’re going to be seeing more of Becca as well
