Warnings: angst, a little twist at the end of this one
Summary: It had been years since you had last since Jimmy. The two of you were highschool sweethearts, until you parted ways. After a horrible breakup with your two timing ex-fiance, you transfer to the U.S.S Enterprise. Finally coming face to face with the boy you left behind. Can the two of you work alongside each other in peace? Or will the past come back to haunt you?
Summary: in this chapter, you try to convince jim that gigolette is a word.
As beta shift faded into gamma, the medbay was quiet as per usual for such an hour. There weren’t many scheduled appointments and the non-alpha shift red shirts seemed to get the memo about working carefully so as to prevent injury. The only sounds were the soft beeps emitting from each of the occupied biobeds, the rhythmic nature of said beeps an indication that all was well.
You sighed and sat back against Leonard’s cushiony chair, adjusting the lumbar setting— not because you needed to, but because you had a strong desire to watch him attempt to fix it with that scowl and wrinkle between his eyebrows he usually got when he grew frustrated.
You narrowed your eyes at the screen of his PADD only to widen them a moment later, narrowing them once more. The words had slowly begun to look as if they were in a language you had no ability to read, and that was only getting worse by the second.
You set the PADD down and pulled your legs onto the large chair, careful not to teeter onto the floor. You set your elbows atop the desk and dug the heels of your hands into your shut eyes. Your exhale was heavy and hummed, your voice tired as you groaned out, “I’m going to die here.”
“I’d sure as fuck hope not.”
You jumped, your hands flat against the table as you looked up with wide eyes. You told yourself the beating in your chest, heavy and painful, was due to fear— nothing else. “What the fuck, Jim? You can’t just walk in here when the door is— It was open, wasn’t it?”
He smiled and nodded. “It was.”
You groaned loudly once more, drumming your fingers. You watched as he walked from the doorway to the seat across the desk, your gaze following the sleep so clearly drooping his features to the cotton clothes he’d changed into. “I’d ask what I can help you with but we’re still in the middle of another favor I’m doing for you.”
He slouched in the seat, his hands folded to sit on his stomach. “It’s so pleasant speaking to you.”
You hummed, resting your chin on your propped up hand and switching the PADD back on. “I’m aware that I’m a real gift from above.” You sighed and glanced at him once you retrieved the chart you’d given up on. “Did you actually need something? It’s late.”
He shook his head. “Nothing. Bones told me you’d be stuck here all night and I felt bad.”
@trashyemonerd requested: I sent a request like 24 hours ago
but I wanna send one again. Can you please write a Kj imagine where Kj will be
staying out of NZ for months to film Riverdale and his career like blows up so
he’s doing tons of projects and decides to stay in the US. And the reader, his
gf, is left in NZ to study but then surprises Kj that she’ll study in a Uni
near him? Omg. Im getting the feels from this haha bc Im having a uni interview
tomorrow. Ahh ty
A/N: This is rather late, I apologize for that but I hope
you did a good job on your university interview. I hope I did an alright job as
I’ve never really been anywhere outside of the U.S but I’d love to travel and
visit other places, especially Italy or Japan. I did do a little research on
universities in NZ and the States / Canada so there we go. You, the reader are
from Massey University (NZ) to U/N which is University Name since I’ll let you
decide where you want to go to school as originally I was going to have you in
VSAA (Vancouver School of Arts & Academics) but decided to change and let
you do the picking. I decided to change up the parents a little so please don’t
hate me, just change it to ‘dad’ or something if you don’t like having two
moms. I’m trying to be more diverse with my writing and if you forgot, YN/N is
your nickname. This does mention the whole KJ liking a comment that is fat
shaming people which really has been blown up and I really don’t mean to offend
anyone out there by mentioning it. Also this turned out rather long by
accident, oops. Posted from my library near my apartment so yeah. . Ships are closed for the time being and requests are open
unless stated otherwise by me!
Relationship(s): KJ Apa & Reader
You remember when you had to say goodbye to KJ when he was
picked to play Archie Andrews for the new show called Riverdale, it was a big
chance for him and you wanted to be supportive. Even if that meant you would be
stuck in New Zealand while he was going to the States and Canada as you never
have had left your home country. You were still studying at the Massey University
in Wellington before and after he left. It was okay for the first few months
while you stayed and watched Riverdale which was surprisingly becoming one of
your favorite shows, totally not being biased or maybe you were a little. But
it did make you miss him a little more than you thought even texting and
skyping was a difficult due to the wacky time zones and KJ’s schedule not being
in his favor. You decided to do probably the biggest choice you’d make in your
life, well one of them anyway and you decided to ask your parents about it.
“Well what do you think? I promise to stay in school and not
be like that crazy college kid who just drinks and parties. Plus I’ve gotten
such good grades during my first year at the university.” You say with pleading
eyes to your parents who kept looking either you, each other, or your little
PowerPoint you even made for extra brownie points. It was happening so fast for
your parents that you wanted to go out of the country, let alone study aboard
in a different country. Even though your parents did house some foreign
exchange students while you were in high school. Eventually they agreed as long
as the school board was okay with transferring your existing credits to the
school you already picked out, U/N. Which so far has worked out smoothly as you
stopped to see your parents whom came with you at the airport as you moved the
strap of your carry on bag to hug them more comfortably.
“Remember we expect you to call when arrive safely, okay
Y/N?” Your birth mother says with a serious facial expression on her face, “I
don’t want anything bad to happen to you.” She says as she gave you a hug
before went to hug your stepmom whom was very excited to see you go study
aboard since she did it herself when she was younger.
“Be good okay? Remember I packed a camera in your bag so be
sure to send plenty of pictures, I can’t wait to see your adventures out there.
Oh! Don’t forget to say hello for us when you see KJ.” She says as she presses
a kiss on your forehead while you nod before waving goodbye to them as your
plane was calling your passengers.
time skip due to long and boring flight across the pacific ocean . }
You remember telling KJ that you were just visiting but you
didn’t quite tell him that were actually studying abroad as you looked around
being noticing a familiar face that you missed so much. He seemed to have
noticed as well while you both ran up to hug each other after it seemed like
forever. You let out a squeak as he picked up you just a little before you let
go. He didn’t look much different well, excluding his hair that was still in
that noticeable Archie Andrews auburn ginger. “Gosh, it feels weird not being
New Zealand anymore. But I miss you, you big goof.” You say as you nudge him in
the forearm before walking along side to get a move on with the crowds of
people in airport, not noticing that cameras were on you.
“I miss you too, YN/N. It’s been crazy since Riverdale
really took off on CW, I didn’t expect it to suddenly give me such big projects
or popularity. Or the scandal that’s going that I’m sure you’ve heard of me
liking a comment that was very inappropriate and shame on my part. I guess
people are hating me but like you said Y/N. ‘You can’t expect everyone to love
you, some will hate you and try to bring you down’ right?” He says while
absently rubbing the back of his neck, “And you know, I haven’t mentioned you
yet to the public because I’m scared that they’ll start turning to you and
spread all sorts of mean things.” KJ mutters as you gave him a one armed hug
while you remember that before picking up your suitcases from baggage claim.
The former burnet furrows his eyebrows at your bags in confusion, “I thought
you would pack less for what you said you were coming here for.”
You brought up a mischievous grin on your face, “That’s
because I wanted to surprise you. I’m going to start studying at U/N now so
we’ll have a more time together with your crazy schedule, plus New Zealand
isn’t the same without you.” You say as you start chuckling at KJ’s shocked
face and you elbowed him once more, “You look like some gaping bird waiting for
a worm. Oh and my moms say hello. I need to call them soon to let them know I
arrived safe.” You snicker as the other just shook his head at you while you
“You are full of one too many surprises YN/N for your own
good you know?”
Summary: in this chapter, the lollipop flavor debacle is settled.
A/N: happy 1 day late star trek day, friends :))
You were staring at each other. Lying on your sides, face one another, your eyes just focusing on the irises of the other. He was smiling, just a little in that small, sweet way that always made you feel heard, made you feel cared for. You hoped the smile you wore wasn’t too much, wasn’t too revealing of the hammering in your chest and the utter disarray in your head.
He lifted his hand, his fingers centimeters from your jaw before he paused. When you glanced up, he closed the distance and let his fingertips trace your jaw, the curve of your ear, the rise of your cheekbone, the slope of your nose. He sighed as he stared at you, letting his fingers tangle through your hair. “I hate orange lollipops.”
You turned your face to laugh into the pillow. “What?”
“Yeah,” he continued, smiling wider when you turned your head only enough to let one eye meet his. “Partial to green apple, sometimes lime. Anything green.”
“Except vegetables,” he agreed with a single nod, sighing out when he saw both of your eyes.
“Why did you keep taking the orange ones?” you asked, pushing at his shoulder and ignoring the feeling in your stomach the moment his fingers wrapped around your wrist and pulled you closer. “It’s not like you had to. It was a bribe for your benefit.”
“I didn’t need a bribe.”
“I’m a difficult patient, I know that,” he interjected, struggling against a frown when you took your hand from his. “I hate hypos, and physicals, and getting my blood drawn. Bedside manner doesn’t come naturally to Bones, he needs the aid of unnecessarily sugary things. He had run through every flavor by the time you transferred on board, except orange. Had a full set of jars of orange.”
“You couldn’t have said something?”
He shook his head. “Like I said, I didn’t need a bribe— you’ve got good bedside manner. And I’d take any flavor of lollipop if it was you giving it to me.”
You snorted, pushing at his bare chest before turning onto your back. “Stop flirting with me, I already had sex with you.”
“Four times,” he added, smirking.
“Fourtimes,” you sighed out, your eyes shutting for a second as if you could relive the toe-curling, hair-raising, moan-inducing blissful feeling.
⬆ Lord of the Rings moves to No. 4 after Viggo revealed he was almost in The Hobbit. ☆ Summer is finally ending. Maybe that’s why Frozen (No. 8) came back with a vengeance. ⬆ As excitement grows around the live-action Beauty and the Beast (No. 11), so does its ranking.
Music: Mind the gap as we enter Music.
⬆ Taylor Swift lost her relationship, but gained the No. 2 spot. Hm. ☆ All about that 🔑 change, Lady Gaga’s new single earns her No. 4. ☆ All eyes on Sia. Her single with Kendrick Lamar boosted her to No. 6.
Celebrities: A quick stop in Hollywood.
⬆ Tom Hiddleston lost his relationship, but gained the No. 3 spot. Funny how this works. ☆ Alycia Debnam-Carey just shows up to NYFW and pulls a thirteen spot jump to No. 5 ⬇︎ Rebecca Sugar is at a sweet No. 13 after talking about how queer-positive Steven Universe is.

Maria Campos-Pons, Spoken Softly with Mama, 1997, Multimedia Installation
I will display two pieces by the Afro-Cuban artist Maria Campos-Pons, both of which examine Afro-Cuban female identity and provide artistic commentary on feminism, racism, and their intersectionality within Cuban culture. This first piece exhibited by the artist is Spoken Softly with Mama, which was first exhibited in New York in 1998, and it places a “strong emphasis on modes of expression rooted in Santeria practices at the center of the project”. (12) The projected video in the multi-media installation piece captures the image of a familial scene involving a young girl and her mother. Their conversation is soft and whispered, showing close intimacy between the characters. This work is a nod to her Afro-Cuban female family members, who were all descendants of Nigerian slaves forced to the island of Cuba. Her mother, grandmother, sisters, and aunts are all featured from afar are shown exchanging stories and trinkets. The multi-media exhibit features embroidered silk and organza on top of ironing boards with photographic transfers, cast glass irons, cotton sheets, and projected video tracks like the one discussed previously. Spoken Softly with Mama is a symbol of the Afro-Cuban woman’s experience on the island and integrates personal memory and experience to represent this. Like La Familia, it places women at the forefront of the artistic piece which is a mode of empowerment for Afro-Cuban women.
^^ i couldn’t find a good pic of Steve so here’s is a pretty gif of rain :)
Pairing: Steve x Reader
Summary: You and Steve fail to have a baby.
Disclaimer!: This is fiction. I am not an expert on pregnancies and labor, so please don’t be offended or send hate and all that yucky stuff :)
Warnings: Involves stillbirth! YOU’VE BEEN WARNED
This idea came to me in the car, while listening to “Hello” by Adele on repeat. If you guys want the full effect, listen to that song (if you dare). Or listen to “End of the Line” from the Captain America: The Winter Soldier if you are really bold :O
"Oh god—Steve!“ you cried as you clutched onto your swollen stomach.
“Hang in there darling,” Steve urged as he squeezed your sweaty palm. The nurse behind you wheeled you quickly through the hospital and into the delivery room. You let out a cry of pain as the next contraction came stabbing through.
this is the first im hearing about hydra kate bishop…?? what on earth is that about.
A very unpopular and ill-advised decision, that’s what :D
In the Ultimates Spider-man comic, where Miles was Spider-man in a non-616 universe, Kate Bishop showed up as a student at Miles’ high school. They started dating and she was almost immediately revealed (to the reader) to be a lifelong member of Hydra – ie, her parents were Hydra and she was raised in the culture. Her father ultimately tried to flip Miles to Hydra, which, LOL, and then Battleworld happened and the whole thing was rendered moot anyway. But because part of the goal of Battleworld was to seamlessly integrate what remained of the Ultimates line into 616, they obviously couldn’t bring a duplicate Kate Bishop with racist totalitarian politics along when they transferred Miles’ boarding school and BFFs and parents to the 616. So apparently his relationship with Kate now never happened.
I can’t wait until he meets Kate in this universe (it’s bound to happen sooner or later). I hope whoever writes it is aware of what happened and makes a huge injoke out of it.
what the FUCK is up with hawkeye’s wierd mask/face thing in Ults? Scared the crap out of me
That is the mask he chose to wear after someone posing as Steve Rogers slaughtered his wife and children. (Yay Ults *finger twirl*) If it’s any consolation, it’s totally meant to be double-plus creepy. For a while there was a subplot to the main comics where basically Clint disappeared into Hawkeye as a way of coping with the death of his family. Then quite suddenly he appears to have forgotten he ever had one and returns to normal.
Sidebar: I am 100% certain that the existence of Clint’s surprise family in the MCU was based on Ults and that Joss Whedon, who has a creepy raging boner for Ults, left the MCU after Disney let him introduce the family and then told him that no, he couldn’t murder an entire family in a PG-13 film because it would be “cool”.
