anonymous asked:

i know you've done a few tomco weddings but was wondering can you please write a janstar wedding

Yes I can! I really liked writing this and had a fun time! I hope you like it and I hope it makes sense. This is my first time writing about Buff Frog, I think he’s more of an ally now, and I think by this time he will be! He warned Star and they watched his kids and all, I think he’s a friend.


Star smoothed out her big dress and took a deep breath. This one was her real wedding, so it was a lot more nerve wracking. To clarify, Star and Janna agreed to have one real wedding, and one wedding on Mewni in front of all the citizens. It gave Star what she wanted, her own fairy tale wedding. And it also helped Moon and the citizens. It was customary for them to see the new queen wed, nobody had to know that it meant nothing. Star looked crazy in the ceremonial dress, and Janna had to wear a knight suit for whatever reason, it didn’t feel like their wedding, more like a costume party. But now it was the real one, and it was going to be amazing.

“Star! You look amazing!” Marco cried, stepping in through the door. Star jumped and ran to Marco, giving him a big hug.

“I was starting to get nervous, wondering where you were!” She exclaimed.

“There was cake drama.” Marco laughed. “Me and Tom had to pick it up from across town, we didn’t know the bakery was so far away. If we did we would have left sooner.” He giggled. Star smiled and gave Marco a kiss on the head.

“I’m so happy you’re here!” She grinned. “Mostly because you need to help me put on my shoes, I can’t really bend down in this dress.” She explained. Marco laughed and helped Star sit down in the chair, he then helped her put on her shoes. “My mom came by and helped me put on my dress, and she gave me all this wonderful jewelry to wear. I thought she would be angry about us doing a whole other wedding away from Mewni… but she was so happy that I was happy!” Star smiled.

“I’m so happy for you, Star.” Marco grinned. He helped Star up and she spun around. “I didn’t think the Mewni wedding was that bad, me and Tom had fun watching the Warnicorns run around the ballroom.” He giggled. River had wanted to let them out for a ceremonial stampede, as he called it, and Mon’s protests turned to be true when they all ran loose in the castle.

“It was chaotic…” Star smiled. “That’s why I want this wedding to be perfect. No drama.” She told Marco. Marco tilted his head confused.

“You, Star Butterfly, don’t want drama and chaos?” He asked. Star nodded.

“Janna is an Earth girl! I want her to have an Earth girl wedding. So I’m leaving it up to you! To make sure this wedding go smoothly, nothing out of place, nothing chaotic and intense.” She instructed. Marco shrugged, this was weird, but it was Star’s wedding.

“Whatever you want.” He assured her.

——————————————————————————————————————————–

“Jan, you look great!” Tom grinned. Janna was in a well-fitting wedding dress, it didn’t puff out so much like Star’s, it seemed a bit more like a white tuxedo, only with a skirt attached.

“You think?” She asked, smiling. “Marco told me I remind him of a business princess.” She giuggled. Tom laughed a shrugged.

“Well that doesn’t mean you don’t look beautiful.” He smiled. Janna made a happy face and gave Tom a hug. Tom grumbled. “Okay, okay, enough of that.” He muttered, but the affection from a dear friend was loved. “When is the wedding starting anyway? You’re almost ready.” Tom pointed out.

“Yeah, but you aren’t.” Janna responded. Tom tilted his head, looking down at his black tux. He looked pretty ready.

“Uh, why?” He asked.

“Because I have a job for you.” Janna told Tom. “We all remember the Warnicorn incident at the Mewni wedding.” Janna reminded. “So that’s why I want this wedding to be perfect, no drama.” She added. Tom looked confused.

“You, Janna Ordonia, don’t want drama and chaos?” Tom asked. Janna shook her head.

“Star is a princess, she deserves a princess wedding. Perfect, everything to be perfect!” She cried. “So I’m leaving it up to you! To make sure this wedding go smoothly, nothing out of place, nothing chaotic and intense.” She told him. Tom rubbed the back of his head and shrugged.

“I’ll… do my best.”

——————————————————————————————————————————–

The ceremony went smoothly… for the most part. Tom and Marco were both on edge the whole time, looking out to make sure nothing would fall over, nothing would catch on fire, and nothing would explode. This seemed overkill, but for them it was normal. After the ceremony everyone was making their way to the hotel for the wedding reception.

Before he could go, Marco got a hug from Star. “The ceremony went perfectly!” She grinned. “Nothing bad happened at all!” She smiled.

“I know, I’ve been on edge the whole time.” Marco laughed. Star smiled.

“Well now you have the reception to keep in line, remember, no drama.” Star instructed. She then got sort of a bored look on her face. “Just a dull party…”

Meanwhile, Tom was having a similar conversation with Janna, only Janna was more vocal about her boredom. “Well, at least Star looks happy.” Janna smiled, and walked off to meet up with her new wife of fifteen minutes. Tom just stood there as Marco approached him.

“You too?” He asked. Tom nodded.

“Well if it’s any consolation, Star is bored out of her mind with this ‘no drama no chaos’ wedding.” He laughed. Tom stopped and turned to face the human.

“Wait, what? Janna is ready to die, she’s so bored!” Tom exclaimed. Marco sighed.

“What can I say, they both love adventurous experiences, but want to make the other one happy.” Marco shared. “I just want them to enjoy their wedding.” Marco shared. “They clearly love these chaotic adventures, it’s how they fell in love.”

“I think I have an idea.” Tom grinned.

——————————————————————————————————————————–

Star and Janna danced at their wedding, although they seemed content with each other, both of them had that tired look after six dances. Just dancing to the same type of song, with the same room, in the hotel. Of course they loved each other, more than anything! But they were BORED! And neither wanted to say anything, afraid they would hurt the other’s feelings.

But the boys got that covered.

“STAR BUTTERFLY!” A voice boomed. Everyone in the ballroom turned and saw Buff Frog in the doorway. “I AM HERE TO FINISH OUR FIGHT!” He cried. Star tied her dress up, not even thinking to question why a newly found semi-ally was here to fight. She wielded her wand and motioned to Janna. The girls charged at him and the fight raged for a long while. Star ended it when she casted an Emerald Snake Strike, and blasted the frog out of the room.

“Janna! We did it!” She grinned. Everyone in the room cheered and the newlyweds hugged. “That was so awesome!” Star jumped.

“I know!” Janna cried. “I… I didn’t want to say anything… but I love my warrior princess, I guess a casual wedding wasn’t for us.” Janna joked. Star giggled and pulled her down into a kiss.

Tom and Marco ran out of the ballroom and helped Buff Frog up. “We are so sorry! She wasn’t supposed to hurt you that bad.” Marco stressed.

“It’s fine, it’s fine.” He assured. “You promise you watch my kids, anytime I need, no pay?” He asked. Tom sighed.

“Yeah, we promise.” He assured. Buff Frog smiled.

“Good, I have few more jobs coming that I need babysitter for.” He cut open a portal, but before vanishing he stopped. “Oh and, after party, you tell Star that I was not actually attacking. I don’t want her to re-think of me as villain. We are friends now, da?” He asked.

Tom gave a thumbs up. “Yup, we good pal.” He grinned.

“Thanks again Buff Frog!” Marco waved and the monster disappeared. “A good old, wedding monster battle.”

I still encourage anyone who feels at all compelled to write to do so. I just try to warn people who hope to get published that publication is not all it is cracked up to be. But writing is. Writing has so much to give, so much to teach, so many surprises. That thing you had to force yourself to do—the actual act of writing—turns out to be the best part. It’s like discovering that while you thought you needed the tea ceremony for the caffeine, what you really needed was the tea ceremony. The act of writing turns out to be its own reward.

Ashton Imagine: He Surprises You at Graduation After You Two Fight

Author: Julie

-

Your senior year was coming to an end, which meant your mother was sending out cards to all your closest relatives to tell them about your graduation. Finally getting a set date for when your graduation would be also meant you could call your boyfriend, Ashton, to ask him to come. You knew he’d be excited about going, as he’d promised to attend no matter what he had going on.

It only took a few rings until Ashton picked up. You could barely hold back the excitement when you heard his voice and didn’t even respond to his greeting before telling him the news. “Babe, I finally know the date of my graduation ceremony!”

“Really? That’s great! Go on, then, tell me when it is,” His tone instantly got cheerier and had no trace of the grogginess that he had when he first picked up. You probably woke him up, but you couldn’t think of that, not when there’d be a reason for Ashton to come visit you relatively soon.

“It’s June 12th, so in a couple weeks,” You chirped, the smile you wore since that morning not fading one bit. You were met with only silence, so you repeated the date before continuing on. “You’ll come, right?”

“Uh, I – (Y/N) I’m sorry, babe, but I don’t think I can make it then,” His voice instantly dropped down into a solemn tone you weren’t used to hearing often.  “We start touring the 10th again and I don’t think we’d be able to – ”

“But, you said you’d be able to come,” You said slowly, your mind taking its time to work out that Ashton wouldn’t be coming, mostly because you didn’t want it to be true. “Is this some sort of joke?”

Of course it wasn’t a joke. If it were, he wouldn’t have sounded so serious. That phone call ended with some loud words exchanged that left you feeling the worst you ever have in a long time. It’s not that you wanted him to stop everything that had to deal with his band just for you, but you hadn’t seen him in so long and graduating was so important to you that you thought he’d be able to attend.

-

Sitting through long speeches from various staff members and the Valedictorian wasn’t what you’d call the best part of the ceremony. If you were being honest, not much of anything you’d been doing lately made you feel any better. You and Ashton hadn’t talked since that phone call, and while you smiled for the photos your mom made you take with visiting aunts and uncles, none of the smiles were actually genuine.

You hadn’t noticed that they were starting to call people up to receive their diplomas. As a student got called up, a few cheers emitted from somewhere in the crowd to indicate that’s where their family were sitting. Your mom had told you nearly a dozen times to make sure to look to the left so that she could take a million pictures of you with your diploma in hand.

Your name was called, and you could hear the cheering of your mom from the audience along with a couple of ‘whoop’s from a few friends in their seats as you made your way out of the aisle and to the stage. After shaking hands with the Principal – a man you only saw at spirit assemblies and occasionally in the front office – you were directed to where you’d exit the stage. As promised, you looked to your left to where you could tell your family would be, and among their smiling faces, you saw a familiar one you hadn’t seen in so long. Just the sight of it nearly made you stop in your tracks.

Ashton.

He apologized endlessly after the ceremony, saying how he actually had a day off and could’ve made it but he didn’t want to cut it too close. You admitted you, too, were in the wrong for getting angry at him over something you couldn’t change.  He told you he could only stay for the night before he had to be on a plane back to Italy for their next show, which you didn’t mind one bit because he was there with you now and nothing was better than seeing his face after so long.

“Blaine! Blainey! Blainey!”

Blaine turned around, letting go of Kurt’s hand just in time to catch his mother as she stumbled from Puck’s arms. “Mom,” he said brightly. “Are you having a good time?”

“Your friend Puck is such a good dancer,” she beamed. “And quite handsome too. Did you know he’s in the Air Force?”

“Yep, I was vaguely aware of that,” Blaine chuckled. “You’ve met Puck before, remember? We went to McKinley together?”

“I cleaned your gutters,” Puck supplied.

Kurt jerked around, his eyes wide. “You did what to Blaine’s mom?”

Leigh had been a very long term friend of Loki. When Leigh was 6 and his parents tried to kill him Loki took his armies and retook the throne of hell for Leigh killing Leigh’s parents.

Loki tried to train Leigh but was soon over taken by Leigh’s skill. Leigh was widely known for being the most powerful thing to ever exist and one of the most skillful, ever since then Leigh and Loki had been great allies.

It was approaching the ceremony of the ever chosen, where the greatest warriors from all the realms would be chosen by the king himself and made into Praetorian guard, and Leigh’s royal vizier, the person who would serve him for eternity.

Leigh rode with his men to the last location on their trip, Asgard. He rode deep into the city and dismounted when he saw Loki.

He approached his old friend. “Loki.” He smiled. “Good to see you… I trust you have your best warriors in the halls? It is time for the challenges.” Part of the ceremony was a 1 on 1 duel with the king to try and impress him.

Leigh may of only been 15 but he was 6 foot 9’ and his armor along with height made him very formidable.
