Birthday Surprise - Sirius Black x Reader

Warnings: I wrote this in a rush so if it’s not very good I apologise in advance.

Requested from anonymous: Today is Ben Barnes’ birthday!! I’m so excited! So in honour of his birthday can I request a Sirius Black x Reader imagine where it’s Sirius’ birthday and the reader with the Marauders prepare him a surprise? Thank you!

Sirius woke up with a strange feeling this morning. Oh yeah. It is his birthday today. He didn’t expect anything from his friends. Perhaps they don’t even know what else it is today, than a simple Sunday. Little did he know that this exact moment his best friends, the Marauders and Y/N, were down at the common room trying to prepare his surprise.

“No! No! No!”

“Come on Y/N you didn’t like anything we suggested.” protested James while eyeing Remus to defend him.

“She’s right you know, Prongs. We can’t scream ‘BARKY BIRTHDAY’ the moment he comes down.”

“Why not?” he whispered-yelled, not taking it anymore. “I think it is a brilliant idea! You guys know that 'Barky’ is the word he would have chosen to say as a joke. He’s Padfoot after all. We know him pretty well.”

“Yes, James, exactly. That’s why we can’t do this. We don’t want to do something he would have done and said on his own. We want to catch him off guard. Besides, he doesn’t even know we know it is his birthday today.”

“You’re so annoying today!” James exclaimed trying to control his anger for his best mate’s sake.

Y/N wasn’t annoying in real life, but today she wanted to make something special for Sirius’ birthday. Sirius never really celebrated his birthday and he never talked about it. In fact, he never told anyone when his birthday is. All she could think about was a way to make him feel loved. She loved him, yes, but that didn’t affect anything. She would have surprised him anyway. These feelings, though, made her work harder and try to do more thinks that just to yell 'Barky Birthday’.

“Y/N!!” Remus almost screamed while waving his hands in front of her face.

“Sorry I drifted away.” she apologised. “What were you saying?” she asked with an innocent smile on her face.

“I asked how did you manage to learn when his birthday is.”

“I just bought some candies to Regulus and gave him some advice for a girl he fancies, in exchange for Sirius’ birthday date.” she replied feeling proud of herself for doing so.

“Amazing” said Remus admiring his friend for her cleverness.

“We still don’t know what to do with his surprise guys! We’re wasting time right now.” James joined them reminding them that in any moment Sirius will come down.

“I say we do something spontaneous. Something he never saw us doing before. So we will catch him off guard and each of us will do what we think it’s best.” Y/N suggested.

“All right. Remus and I will scream 'BARKY BIRTHDAY’. No objections!” James said turning to Remus who was ready to protest. Remus just rolled his eyes.

“Y/N? What will you do?” they boys asked her.

“I have something in mind. But let me do it first and then you can scream your wish as many times as you want.”

“Why?” James asked her impatiently.

Sirius appeared at the top of the staircase but nobody noticed him. They were deep in conversation and he couldn’t help but wonder what they were talking about with so much passion.

“Be patient. You’ll see.”

“He’ll see what?”

Everybody froze immediately and turned towards the staircase to find Sirius looking back at them. He took a few steps and soon enough he was standing at the end of the stairs leading to the boy’s dormitories. He stared at his friends waiting for an answer.

“What do we do now?” whispered James.

“Watch” Y/N told them with determination. She stood up.

“It is now or never.”

“Now or never wh-hmpf”

Sirius couldn’t finish his question. Y/N ran across the common room and towards him. She jumped and fell in his embrace. Luckily Sirius caught her and put his hands on her lower back while she placed her lips upon his like her life depended on that kiss. He kissed her back with the same passion. Their lips moved in sync proving that they were perfectly made for each other and expressing the feelings the two teenagers felt for the other. They parted only when they felt the necessity to breathe. Y/N looked down at Sirius and grinned widely. Sirius smiled too and let her down on her feet.

“Happy Birthday, Pads” she said satisfied with how her plan went.

“BARKY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, PADFOOT!!” screamed James, while Remus rolled once again his eyes and clasped Sirius’ shoulder wishing him 'Happy Birthday’ with a warm smile.

Sirius couldn’t believe his ears. They knew. They knew and they had surprised him. They actually cared about him. If he were anyone else, he would have wanted to know how they found out. Sirius Black, though, couldn’t care less. All he cared about right now was the girl with the beautiful smile in front of him. His first love had actually kissed him. He’s never been kissed like that before. And he couldn’t help but admire this little angel looking him in his eyes. He cupped her cheek and brushed her cheekbone with his thumb. She closed her eyes savoring the moment. He leaned in and pressed his lips upon hers softly, like she was fragile and she would break at any moment. When the kiss ended she asked eagerly like a little child:

“Ready for your presents?”

“I thought you were my present” he replied and kissed her forehead, being happy for once on his birthday.


Summary: Draco has one person in mind for the yule ball.  One person who makes his insides flip upside down, his palms sweaty and his knees weak.  The one person he can’t talk to.  Guess what?  Y/N does too.

Word Count: just over 2400

Draco’s Journal – December 7, 1994

There’s going to be a stupid ball on Christmas Day.  Father will probably make me go with some daft bimbo.  I’ll have to get dressed up.  I’ll have to dance.  I’ll have to look at all the ridiculous couples act all lovey dovey on the dance floor.

It’ll be awful.

Draco’s Journal – December 9, 1994

Father said I could pick someone to go with.  He gave me a few suggestions but Mother made sure I knew that I could ask anyone.

Maybe I’ll ask her.

No.  That’s ridiculous.

I barely know her. She would never go to a ball with me.

I’ll have to look at the suggestions.  I’ll take whoever is the prettiest.  Yeah.  That’s the plan.

I need to forget about her.

Draco’s Journal – December 12, 1994

I did not forget about her.

I saw her in the Great Hall and nearly asked her right then and there.  She just looked so perfect talking and laughing with her friends.

No.  I need to get it together.

I’m asking Pansy Parkinson.

“I’m coming over for cuddles and kisses.” (Ethan)

You were laying in bed one afternoon, trying to ease the pain of your cramps when your boyfriend, Ethan, called you.

“Baby, what are you up to?” He said when you answered.

“Nothing, just wallowing in pain.” You replied.

“What? Why? What’s wrong?” He asked.

“It’s my time of the month.” You replied.

“Awe, baby I’m sorry. I’m coming over so I can take care of you.” 

“Ethan, you don’t need to-”

“(Y/N),” He interrupted, “I know I don’t need to, but I want to. Because I love you.” He said.

“Ethan, you are literally the best boyfriend a girl could ever ask for. I love you.” You said.

“I love you too. I’ll see you in a bit.” He said.

“Okay baby, bye.” You said and hung up. You put your phone back on the charger, and after a while, you heard the doorbell ring. When you answered it, Ethan was standing on the porch with shopping bags in his hands. 

“What’s all this?” You asked as you took some of the bags from him and lead him back up to your room.

“I stopped at the drugstore and bought some chips, candy, and a couple of movies. Also, there’s some Midol in there, I don’t know if it’s the one you use, but it said something about relief for bloating, so I got it. Oh, and I ordered a pizza. It’s on it’s way.” He said smiling. You couldn’t help but smile. 

“You’re the absolute best, you know that?” You asked as you kissed him.

“I try.” He said smiling and kissed you again. Once the pizza got there, you put on one of the movies and made your self comfortable in bed with Ethan. You were sitting up against the head board and Ethan laid his head against your chest, massaging your belly, trying to ease your pain. You took your phone off of your night stand and opened up Snapchat. You took a picture of the back of Ethan’s head and made sure to get all of your food and the tv in the background. You captioned it “my view 😍” and posted it to your story. Once the movie ended, you looked down at Ethan and saw that he was sleeping. You carefully rolled him off so you could move the pizza box off of the bed. You laid back down and cuddled back into his chest. He wrapped his arms tightly around you and kissed your forehead.

“I love you Ethan.” You said.

“I love you too (Y/N).” He mumbled. You nuzzled your face into his chest and slowly drifted off to sleep.



(this was sucha good idea bless)



It was just another summer night of you wandering around town aimlessly, until you decided to catch a movie or two at the “Nightly Double”. You didn’t drive so you sat in the rows of seats by the bathrooms and snack bar. The movie was actually kind of boring, so you looked around at the other sights happening at the movies. You happened to catch a cute  chestnut brown-haired  boy staring at you. He winked at you.

You rolled your eyes and tried to refocus on the movie but your thoughts were only about that certain boy. You heard a shuffling in the crowd but ignored it as the climax reached the movie Not until a strong arm wrapped around your shoulders did you realize what had happened.  The boy who winked at you was now sitting right next to you with his arm around you.

“C-Can I help you?” you stammered. 

“Depends” Dallas teased.

“On?” you asked.

“Whether you like me or not” Dallas stated simply.

“Well looks like I can’t help you then” you said, roughly placing hims arm back in his lap.

“Is this how its gonna be?”  he chuckled.

“Depends” you grinned.

“Well aren’t you a quick one!” Dallas complimented.

“I’m really not… maybe your just slow” you laughed. People began to shush the two of you.

“Whaddaya say we get out of here?” he asked taking your hand.

“Only if you let go of me” you said sweetly with a fake smile plastered on your face.

You both left the nightly double and headed into town.

“I’m Dallas by the way” he added.

“Y/n” you sighed.

“So where are we going?” you asked in all seriousness.

“Wherever you want, doll” Dallas replied.

“Well my house is that way and anywhere would be better than here” you laughed.

“Oh come on! Wait wait just gimme a chance y/n. I’ll show you a good time” he pleaded as he winked>

“Alright fine” you groaned.

He took you to some run-down drugstore on fourth street and bought you some candy. When you refused to share he pretended  to be hurt and offended which made you giggle. After that, he took you to the park. 

“A swing set!” you sang like a kid.

“Could you push me Dallas?” you pleaded. 

“Only because your pushin’ me dollface” he smiled.

You laughed so hard it made your stomach hurt. Dallas had pushed you up so high you thought you were going to go around the top bar. You half laughed half screamed for him to stop you. You got off the swing and tripped only for Dallas to catch you.

“Could you get any smoother?” You gasped.

“I don’t know but it looks like your falling for me” Dallas flirted.

You nearly wheezed at that statement. You looked around and tagged him out of the blue.  You broke into a full on sprint into an empty grass field. Dallas chortled lightly and ran after you.

You giggled while he chased you (I do that so much I don’t know why). You honestly tried your best to outrun him, but he caught you puling his arms around your waist.

You yelped and panted as you tuned to him. His eyes never left yours as he leaned in and closed his eyes. You put your pointer finger on his puckered lips.

“Whoa whoa big boy, at least take me to dinner first!” You laughed as he awkwardly opened his eyes and pulled back.


 Dallas pouted.

“You heard me” you smirked.

“Does that mean you’ll go out with me?” Dallas said returning the smirk

“Depends” you whispered in his ear.

anonymous asked:

Mind me requesting Fatgum with a really sweet Fem S/o who really is mom material like when ever she sees him with his sidekicks she will baby those teens, and she'd tend to bring Fatgum lunch everyday and basically be the sweetest person ever. Sorry I wanted some fluff with Fatgum, Tamaki, and Kirishima. If you don't mind of course!

Awww! This is so cute im ded

“Ooh, hey, Tamaki-san, it’s Fat’s gf!” Kirishima exclaims, drawing both Fatgum and Tamaki’s attention towards a small bargain store across the street. Sure enough, it actually was her, inspecting a dish set and smiling. “Man Fat, you’re such a lucky man, I wish she was my girlfriend…” Kirishima laughs as Fatgum knocks him against the head. The rowdiness of the pro hero and his apprentices catches her attention, and she sets down the dish set to run over excitedly.

“Hi you guys! Out patrolling again today??” She asks, smiling like the sun, bright and blinding. Tamaki feels like he’s going to explode. Fatgum feels like he’s fallen in love all over again. “Oh– Kirshima-kun, Amajiki-kun! I bought you guys some candy at the sweets store! I was looking at these, and thought that you’d both like them!” She digs through her purse to pull out a few handfuls of candies, wrapped in the sweetest little bows.

“Wow, Thanks ___-san!” Kirishima bows, and Tamaki follows. She giggles, and ruffles their hair up. 

“No need to thank me! I just wanna see you guys happy, is all. Gummy, you forgot your lunch on the kitchen counter so I was gonna drop by and leave it at the office for you. I’m glad I ran into you here, though!” She hands Fatgum a paper bag, and Fatgum wants to turn back and pop Kirishima again– hearing him crack up over his nickname.

“Thanks, hon. I was going to die in a moment if I didn’t have food!” He thanks her, leaning down to press a kiss to her cheek. She squealed in delight. Tamaki wants to walk away, this was gross.

“Oh, and you forgot to feed the cat before you left!! I’m not too happy about that, Gummy– you know it’s your job!!” She scolds, pouting cutely. Fat laughs sheepishly, rubbing at the back of his head while she knocks at his chest.

Kirishima and Tamaki end up following behind the couple as they go through their romantic banter. They feel like Fat’s girlfriend is their mom. Every time she spots them, she has a new gift to give them. With her being a secretary at Best Jeanist’s agency, she’s close enough to visit them at the office nearly every day. She takes care of them, giving them advice, and just listening. They’ve basically made a best friend out of her. And it was plain to see why Fat liked her so much. She was basically an angel on the face of the earth.

Kirishima and Tamaki end up sulking over the fact that they’ll probably never find a lover as cute as her. Fat’s super lucky.

You and Tom talked to each other everyday. You knew everything about him and he knew everything about you. Suddenly, one day, you stop sending messages at him and he gets confused. He messages you in Skype, tumblr, instagram and every other social media you gave him. He calls you every one hour expecting you to talk to him again. 

Since you sent him your home address in case someday he decided to visit you.
He immediately buys a flight to your country/state and starts packing his clothes and bought some candies and food that you loved for you two to lay on bed and watch movies. 

He thinks, ‘Did I do something wrong? Maybe she’s mad at me because of the nicknames I give to her but she never tells me that she was bothered by them.’ 

He gets really worried for the rest of the day. He urges to call you one more time to see if you actually answer the phone but instead the mailbox sounds.

“Hey Y/N! Maybe you won’t answer this but I have a surprise for you so, yeah haha call me tomorrow morning at 10am please.” he pauses for a second. “Please. Please, answer me, Y/N.”

He hungs up, disappointed that you were ignoring his calls and messages. He was so worried about you.
He takes the flight from London to your country/state and takes a taxi when he landed. He tells the taxi driver to send him to your apartment and then he arrives.

He knocks at your apartment door, with his bag full of your favorite sweets but instead the door cracks open.
He enters the room, “Y/N? Hey, it’s me Tom! I was coming through here to…” 

He finds you laying on your bed. He thinks you’re sleeping and lets out a relieved breath until he gets closer and finds a big circle of blood in your right side and a bullet in the floor. 

He’s petrified.

autumn leaves (reddie) chapter one

Eddie hasn’t seen the trees change colors since he was a kid, so Richie deems that the two of them should take a road trip back to Derry and see the trees change colors. Cue lots of bad car karaoke, too much coffee, and Eddie absolutely losing his mind over the gorgeous reds, oranges, and yellows of the fall leaves.

Or the one in which Eddie hates Richie, of course, until he falls in love with him.

9:30 am…74 degrees

“Hey, babe? Did you see they are having a massive power outage in New York?” Rick chuckled. “They talk about us not being able to handle snow in the South, but it seems like every summer the power gets overloaded and goes out and you see a mass of people walking over the Brooklyn Bridge to get home cause the subway is down. Talking about our infrastructure can’t handle the cold, well theirs can’t handle the heat.”

Michonne glanced up from her magazine as Rick came into the living room. “You’re getting a real kick out of this, aren’t you?”

“Yes. I get sick of hearing them play ‘Deliverance’ every time they show a car stuck in a few inches of snow back home. Back home we need to start running these stories from up here and playing something like ‘Ice Ice Baby.’ That would—“

Rick’s sentence was interrupted by a loud pop that was immediately followed by the power going out.

Bus Rides- Chapter 19

Fic Masterlist! 

Word Count: 1233

A/N: Yes I’m including the American Independence Day even though these stories really should take place in England but this way there are fireworks so don’t attack me pls I’m smol

PS: There’s a little reference in here to earlier in the story. Props to you if you get it, superfan! 

Dan spent the month of June in his room, only coming out for food and the toilet. He didn’t see the point of leaving if he couldn’t see Phil. He could tell his parents were starting to worry about him, but Dan didn’t care. He simply ignored his surroundings and moved on with his days. 

His only happy moments were those when he was texting Phil. From Phil, he got every type of comfort he could possibly need. Sometimes they would have philosophical discussions at 1:00 in the morning. Other times they would flirt their day away. This time, they spent their evening sending random emojis back and forth. Dan didn’t know what half of them were, and neither did Phil. But as long as they were at least interacting, it brightened Dan’s day. 

It was the longest month of Dan’s life, but eventually July came around. Band camp would start in a week. He just had to make it through the week of the 4th of July. Of course, that would be the worst challenge of all. 

Dan’s parents insisted that he go outside and come with them to the 4th of July fireworks. He wanted to stay home and text Phil, but he wasn’t responding anyway, so Dan decided he might as well just go. His parents would make him despite his wishes. What was the point of wasting his energy fighting? 

He strolled the high school parking lot trying to find a place to connect to the school wifi. Leave it to his school to have wifi bad enough so that it doesn’t even reach ten feet outside. And who has fireworks at a high school anyway? Dan rolled his eyes, deciding to go get some cotton candy. Maybe sugar would make him hyper enough to trick him into being happy. He didn’t quite understand that thought, but he did it anyway. 

He walked by an ice cream cart and heard a familiar voice. “One rainbow swirl cone, please.” Dan turned to see a tall, ebony-headed boy ordering an ice cream cone. 

“Phil!” The boy’s head turned, and Dan stared into his blue-green eyes. The eyes widened, showing off their tints of yellow. Dan couldn’t see the yellow from a distance, but he could tell it was there.

“Dan!” He ran over to Dan, taking him in his arms and squeezing him as tight as he could without spilling his ice cream all over him. Phil finally let go as the ice cream started to melt on his hand in the sweltering summer heat. “It’s been so long since I’ve seen you… I’m so happy you’re here.” 

Dan thought of his original reluctance to going outside. “For once, me too.” 

The two strolled around, enjoying the festivities. Finally, they came across inflatable bouncy houses and slides. “Are we going to?” Dan asked. 

“Of course we are.” Phil was already taking off his shoes. Dan struggled to catch up, then took off after Phil, who was running for the obstacle course inflatable. 

Catching his breath, Dan glared at Phil. “You’re kidding me, right?” 

“No. Why?” 

“You’re obviously going to beat me.” 

“Come on! It’s just for fun.” Phil smiled, lining himself up so he could go with Dan. They waited their turns, the tallest in the line of mostly elementary schoolers. They were definitely out of place, getting looks from children, adults, and even their own peers. But they didn’t seem to mind. When they reached the front of the line, they took off into the bouncy course. Dan immediately attempted to dive through the group of inflatable bars blocking his way, but simply hit his head, getting crushed by Phil, who jumped over. 

Eventually, Dan made it through, but then got knocked over by another obstacle. He was pushed to the side of the inflatable, struggling to get up. Suddenly, he found himself in the grass. He sat up, looking at the inflatable. Sure enough, there was a space in the protective side that he managed to squeeze right through. Dan didn’t just lose the race. He fell out of it.

He rushed over to the end of the course, where Phil was sliding down. “How did you get here? I haven’t seen you since we entered! Quite frankly, I was getting a bit worried.” 

“I fell out.” Phil burst out laughing. “I’m serious.” 

Still laughing, Phil sputtered out a few words. “How is that even possible?” He led Phil to the hole he fell out of, pointing it out to him. “That’s one hell of a safety hazard.” 

“Mhm.” Dan rolled his eyes as they headed back up towards the food. “How about some cotton candy?” Despite finding Phil, he still had been having a craving for cotton candy since he thought about getting some earlier. They went to the stand and bought some cotton candy, walking away from the stand and going to stand against the building and get some rest. 

“Hey, Dan. I have an idea.” Dan looked at Phil, questioning whether or not his idea would be completely stupid. “If we go around the school, we can watch the sunset.” 

Dan thought of the last time they watched the sunset together. It was one of the best nights of his life. “Sure.” He smiled, and Phil took off, leaving Dan in the dust. “Hey, wait up!” He chased Phil around the block, and they found themselves behind the school, where the sports fields were. Phil climbed the football bleachers and sat down. Dan, however, headed to the far right corner of the stands. “Come over here!” he yelled. 

Phil followed him, sitting down at his side. “Why are we over here, exactly?” 

Dan smiled. “This is where you’ll be spending your Friday nights this fall. The band section of the bleachers.” 

“It’s nice up here.” At this, Dan chuckled. “What?” 

“Well, you’ll be down there.” Dan pointed at a clearing at the bottom of the bleachers. “There’s no bleacher space for the pit.” 

“You mean we have to stand the entire game?” Dan nodded. “Man, you set me up good.”

Dan laughed. “I’ll let you sit with me whenever you can get away.” He winked, smiling. 

“Good. I don’t do standing.” Dan’s laughing intensified. 

“Who does?” They both smiled, looking forward as the sunset lit up the sky. There were shades of pink and purple tinting the dark orange sky. “Beautiful.” Dan admired the setting sun that he hadn’t gone outside to see in over a month. 

“Like you.” Dan smiled, resting his head on Phil’s shoulder as they watched the sun retreat into the hills. As darkness fell over them, they heard a loud bang. Turning to the right, they saw fireworks. Rockets whizzed through the air, booming into huge displays of fireworks. Dan smiled as he cuddled up to Phil, watching the show. They oohed and ahhed together, pointing at particularly interesting or big fireworks. Dan’s eyes darted around the sky as he attempted to follow the grand finale. When the last of the fireworks were gone, he smiled. 

“Those were the best fireworks ever.” 

“Really?” Phil asked, leaning in and pressing his lips to Dan’s. The younger boy returned the kiss, his body pressed against the railing of the bleachers. Dan wrapped his hands around the back of Phil’s neck, sparks igniting inside him. Fireworks. Phil broke the connection, smirking. “Still the best?” 

“Nowhere near it.” 

Ive been thinking abt all the weird things that have happened working at a grocery store so far so here is this:

* someone left a blood trail in the bathroom after snorting cocaine

* someone asked me to help them find “baseball seeds,” which are, I suppose, “the seeds you eat when you watch baseball” (sunflower seeds)

* young man came in tripping balls and doing fighting moves by himself in a closed checkout lane. I helped him find the open register next to him, and he bought some oreos and three candy bars. Told me undercover cops were after him. Had to yell to him that he dropped a candy bar on his way out. He picked it up and put it under his oreos, stared off into space a minute, then asked me where his third candy bar went.

* kid shat on the floor

* a lady whispered to me in the parking lot that someone in a truck behind me was watching her, but not to look. Before I could reply, she went into the store. There was nobody in the truck

* woman bought only 2 things: a bunch of corn cobs and a cheap erotic novel

* middle aged man wearing a shirt that said “donkey kong is my spirit animal”

It’s been like, a month
