The Egregiously Overlooked Underappreciated Individuals:

Jennifer Ann Agutter (1952-)

“You just don’t go on doing things that don’t make you happy. I don’t feel that life’s got to be really lovely, really wonderful all the time. For me, if life’s good, it’s good - but it’s not going to be good every minute.”

I think I found you most adorable when you were trying out the floating orb for telecommunication. Something about mages trying out new things for the more simpler ways of life just seems so nice. I wanna be a mage.

“Yes! Being a mage is wonderful! You should come to Dalaran, our library is excellent.”

Today’s excellent character of the day is Harley Quinn from DC Comics!!!

Now over on AO3!

Author’s Note: You all are so good to me! Thank you so, so much for the continued love this story gets. And now it’s been nominated for Best College AU over at the Bellarke Fanfiction Awards. Feel free to vote, if you think about it. But just know I am forever grateful just to be nominated so thank you so, so much! This chapter was fun to write, I have to say. But, like always, I’m nervous. I hope it meets your expectations. Enjoy!

Night Seventy-Four: A Walk of Shame

“You can’t avoid her forever, man.”

And he knew it was the truth, but avoidance seemed much more appealing than confronting his embarrassing display of drunken immaturity.  Bellamy rubbed the back of his neck as he listened to Miller harp at him as he crunched the numbers at his desk.  He couldn’t believe what he was actually attempting to do: call in “sick”. Call in anything in order not to face Clarke again.

Again being the key word.

Because the day after his wonderful display of excellent friendship — or whatever the fuck they were dancing around — he’d come into the bar for his shift and she’d all but murdered him in cold blood and the worst part was probably everyone they knew would help hide the body instead of condone her for the act.  Hell, he’d probably help to if it weren’t his body.

Of course, after her initial “talk to me and I’ll cut your fucking face off” blowup at him there had been complete and total radio silence on her end. And he’d let it go.  At least initially, because he deserved it and she needed her space.  But on the second night he’d figured the white flags would come up and they’d be able to actually have a conversation about it.  He’d been wrong.  In fact, every time he even tried to speak with her she’d simply look at him like he’s sprouted horns and then turn and walk away.

Clarke Griffin was good at a lot of things, but she was a fucking professional at giving the cold shoulder.  And every time he saw her he wanted to explain himself while simultaneously screaming at her for being such a stubborn brat.  So now, nearly a week after his birthday party he was pleading in Miller’s office to cover his shift because he was sure he couldn’t stand another night of cold glares and nearly nonexistent conversation.

been moonin’ over you – star_twxrking

Words: 5,683

The first time Bucky sees Steve, it’s the last day before the semester really begins and classes start up. Rain bounces off the ground around them, causing puddles to form in the dips in the pavement and Bucky’s view to be obscured as he squints across the courtyard. He’s watching the smallest kid he’s ever seen lug the biggest collection of sketch books he’s ever seen towards the blocks of dormitories, skinny arms wrapped around them, trying to shield them from the rain and hold them all together as he half-runs half-walks towards the door.

It’s when Bucky sees the sketch books begin to slip that he decides to intervene.

Words: 6,957

“You’re willing to die for her?” the vampire finally asks, his eyebrows creasing together again.
“I’d do anything to protect a friend.”
The Winter Soldier scoffs, and looks at Steve like he expects him to laugh too, to break this façade he’s keeping up. Steve doesn’t so much as twitch. The Winter Soldier’s face drops. “Friends?” he repeats, but it sounds more like a statement than a question. As if he doesn’t understand the very concept of friendship.
“Yes,” Steve says, sternly.

X Politics and Animals – Kryptaria, rayvanfox

Words: 73,924

It all started on a quiet Brooklyn street. Sure, putting the Veterans Administration clinic next to a funeral parlor was probably the universe’s idea of a joke, but it had a coffee shop right across the street. And the old church next to the coffee shop had a new sign over the doors: Howling Commandos.

When Steve Rogers, the new Team Lead at the VA, first looked across the street and spotted the gorgeous guy with the cute dog, he never planned on becoming emotionally invested. It was just supposed to be a no-strings night of pleasure.

But Bucky Barnes turns out to be far more complicated than Steve ever expected, and at every turn, it seems like Bucky’s past, his family, and his stalker are all conspiring against them. Is it even worth the effort?

(Note: as with everything these two write, I loved this fic and eagerly awaited each update. Unfortunately it ends pretty abruptly, and leaves quite a bit unanswered, so I can only hope that they will someday choose to come back and write more for this universe)

X the poem which I do not write – viverella

Words: 15,863

See, here’s the thing: Steve has a problem.

His problem is embodied in almost six feet of cocky smiles and toned muscles and tattoos and it starts three weeks into the school year when his life drawing professor announces that they’re finally moving onto studying the human form and says, “This is James. He’s going to be our first model.”

And the guy steps up onto the platform in the middle of the room and undresses without a lick of self-consciousness, smirking all the while, and Steve thinks, Oh, hell.

OR: Steve is an art student and Bucky is a figure model and a lot of pining happens.

(Note: LET ME JUST TELL YOU A LITTLE THING ABOUT THIS FIC OKAY, THIS FIC IS LONGER THAN THE LONGEST HARRY POTTER BOOK [OOTP] BUT I DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED THIS FIC JUST FUCKING SNAGGED ME AND I DEVOURED IT IN ABOUT 2 DAYS.

The characterization is perfect, and all of the backstories blend seamlessly. I’m very emotionally invested in this universe okay?!)

“Oh! She is magical, that woman. Not only does she do an excellent job in playing her role, Kate Beckett, but she does an excellent job in being warm and wonderful on the set with everyone. We have such a great “Castle” family with our crew, cast… And i think it has a lot to do with Stana and Nathan. Both putting forth that like look. We don’t have any divas here. We are not gonna have any divas, we’re gonna be a family, and we do things for each other, and we just have a special relationship. She is an amazing woman. No drama honey! Just love”.

Bleach characters, the big bad of Bleach has been Misato this whole time! Your reactions?


As requested by anon. :)


What if it turned out that Ichigo’s teacher, Misato, has been the big bad of Bleach this whole time? How would everybody react? 


Ichigo: W-what?


Ichigo: My TEACHER is the big bad?


Ichigo:
 The same teacher who showed like no interest in ANY of her students, least of all me?


Ichigo: How can she be some sort of evil mastermind??


Chad: She did always let us leave class, Ichigo.


Chad: And she never asked questions.


Chad: She just let it go on.


Ichigo: Yeah, because she didn’t care!


Chad: Or because she cared too much.


Chad: About you. Being her pawn.


Ichigo: …


Chad: It would be an excellent cover.


Keigo: N-no wonder she never let me leave class with the rest of you!!


Keigo: I knew it was favoritism!


Keigo: I just didn’t realize it was favoritism for those useful for her plans.


Shinji: Huh. And I thought I just did a really good job of acting like a real transfer student.


Shinji: I guess that wasn’t the case.


Shinji: Bummer.


Rukia: [gasp]


Rukia: It’s probably the same for me as well - she wasn’t impressed with my acting; she just knew I was a shinigami!


Rukia: Well at least Ichigo’s dad was super taken in by my excellent acting skills!


Ichigo: …


Rukia: What?


Gin: So, Captain Aizen, when you came to real Karakura Town and spent your time chasing around a bunch of scared teenagers instead of the big bad, that was on purpose…right?


Aizen: Yes.


Gin: I don’t know what answer I expected.


Orihime: But guys….why is she doing this?


Ishida: That is an excellent question, Inoue! Also what is she - Quincy? Fullbringer? Shinigami?


Misato: ….human?


Ishida: Wait, seriously?


Ishida: You don’t have any powers?


Misato: Uh, unless you count the power to have successfully manipulated you all this whole time without powers!


Ishida: Um….Kurosaki is going to own you in the face.


Misato: Nah, I’m pretty sure he won’t murder a woman who doesn’t even have powers.


Ishida: But that’s -


Ishida: …


Ishida: Fiendishly clever, actually.


Misato: It’s what I do.
