you: man, why aren’t there any out lgbt professional hockey players? wouldn’t that be so cool? also, watching nhl games on tv costs so much money! i can’t afford to buy an expensive cable plan, but i don’t want to watch games illegally… and gosh, the nhl really sucks in terms of racial diversity…. everyone is so white… i wish there was a way i could enjoy hockey without having to deal with all the problematic issues associated with the nhl…
me, an intellectual:
Now that I’ve used memes to get your attention….
1. The NWHL is super gay!!!
The NWHL is partnered with You Can Play, Kourtney Kunichika has a fiancée, and Harrison Browne is the first transgender athlete to play in a professional American sports league! And that’s not even all of them!!
2. Every nwhl game is streamed online completely free! no costs!!! legally!!! the NWHL youtube channel live streams all the games!!
3. Blake Bolden and Kaliya Johnson are both African-American women playing in the NWHL. There are also several Asian-Americans (Kourtney Kunichika included) and the top draft pick from the 2016 draft was a woman of color named Kelsey Koelzer.
Sorry about the delay, I wanted to watch episode 8 (I don’t have cable but I have canadian netflix) before I wrote this prompt. Thank you for the prompt, I always appreciate it! This is not entirely Jughead and Betty. I felt like I needed an interaction between Jughead and Joaquin because of that last episode.
It was a
Thursday afternoon and four people sat in a circle in the student lounge of
Riverdale High. Kevin Keller, sat in a chair, staring at his phone and texting
rapidly and giving his phone a goofy grin. In the chair next to him Archie Andrews, sat holding his guitar, but
not playing, while staring at a wall on the other side of the room. Betty
Cooper sat on the sofa, face buried in her Chemistry textbook, occasionally
blowing loose strands of honey hair out of her face with frustration, while her
boyfriend, Jughead Jones, sprawled with his long legs over her lap, reread To Kill a Mockingbird for probably the
millionth time. Their silence was interrupted by a single loud clap. The sound came from a classy, perfectly coiffed, midnight haired girl in designer clothes. Veronica Lodge had arrived.
Veronica placed a perfectly
manicured hand on her slim hip, surveying each of her friends closely.
going to the beach on Saturday.” She declared. Archie looked at her and
know if I’m up for it.” He sighed
Archiekins, it was a statement not a choice. You’ve been brooding for so long you’re
about to put Jughead out of business. You’re not going to get over Valerie by
moping all the time.”
slightly. Valerie had broken up with him two weeks ago, she had said she needed
to focus on her music.
“V, I have
to study, exams are next week!” Betty objected, Veronica turned to face her,
rolling her dark eyes, in a way that was somehow still classy.
been studying basically nonstop since September, you can take a day off. And
that day off is going to be Saturday.” She turned her body to face the redhead
who had started to pack up his guitar “Archiekins, you’re driving.”
“I don’t do
beaches.” she whirled around to the raven haired boy who had finally spoken, he
quirked an eyebrow at her.
Holden Caulfield, did you miss when I said it wasn’t a choice?”
turned to face the only person who hadn’t spoken. Kevin simply raised his hands
in mock surrender. Veronica turned on her heel to walk to her next class,
before tossing her dark hair over her shoulder to look back and say one last
bring lover boy if you want.”
finally came and everyone piled into Veronica’s Rover, Archie behind the wheel.
Everyone had gotten a chuckle out of Joaquin, who showed up in his leather jacket
and a pair of neon green swim trunks. Veronica was in charge of the playlist,
causing Jughead to roll his eyes on more than one occasion, but he couldn’t be
too upset with Betty in a swimsuit curled at his side. Way too many bass heavy dance songs later, they had finally arrived. Veronica set up the umbrella, emblazoned with images of watermelon that Veronica had defended as “very summer!” Archie the towels and blankets, and Joaquin the cooler, as Kevin and Betty dragged
Jughead into the water. Betty stopped suddenly, popping onto her toes to tug off Jughead’s beanie and toss it at Archie. He mumbled in mild discomfort before she grabbed him by the hand and tugged him into the lukewarm ocean. Veronica and Archie soon followed, Veronica testing out the water as Archie barreled in, diving headfirst. Jughead chuckled at the scene before he felt a torrent of water smack his chest.
splash me on purpose, Elizabeth Cooper?” Jughead mock glared at her.
“What if I
did, Forsythe?” she said innocently, with a glint in her eye.
you’re going DOWN!” Jughead scooped up his girlfriend and began to wade deeper
into the water, his girlfriend clutching at him and squealing. After they
reached a point where the water was past Jughead’s navel, he flung his
girlfriend into the water.
playing a dangerous game, Mr. Jones” Betty said mischievously, wading towards
him. He was trying desperately not to drool at the sight of her beautiful body
in that tiny blue swimsuit. He smirked at her, only to suddenly have a face
full of water.
war? Really, Bets?”
war ensued for several minutes, progressively getting closer and closer to
their friends, Veronica screeching as she got splashed, Archie laughing at her
misfortune only seconds before getting a face full of salt water himself.
Jughead dove under the water as Betty tried to splash him again, coming up
nearly pressed against her. Instead of splashing her, he wrapped his arms
around her waist, smiling down at the giggling, out of breath woman before him.
She wrapped her arms around his neck and bounced onto her tippy toes, creating
ripples in the water around them as they kissed. Kevin let out a wolf whistle
as Betty pulled back. Jughead’s pupils had blown and his hair was a mess. Betty couldn’t get enough of the sight. After a few moments of staring intensely, Betty broke the silence,
“At least I’m
not the one ruining our moment this time.” They both chuckled.

before wading to the beach. He winced as his feet hit the hot sand. He noticed
Joaquin was still sitting on the beach, texting.
grabbed a bottle of water out of the cooler, chugging a few gulps before
flopping down on the green beach towel under the umbrella.
nice.” He commented, looking at the other boy. Joaquin didn’t look up from his
phone as he responded,
“I’m not a
big swimmer.” Jughead shrugged,
awkward silence ensued. Jughead took a few more sips of the cool water before
trying again. He stared at the scene in the water, Veronica on Archie’s
shoulders and Betty on Kevin’s, both trying to push each other into the water,
all four laughing.
“Kevin is a
good dude.” Joaquin looked up at his phone finally, taking in Jughead for a
moment before nodding slowly. Jughead continued.

“What if I
don’t want out?” The response made Jughead shake his head. As he stood, he
looked at Joaquin one more time,
really care about Kev, you’ll at least consider it. I know what that life does
to people. He deserves better, and I don’t know you, but you deserve better
too. Everyone does. Just think about it, ok? You know where to find me.”
Jughead dropped his empty water bottle into the trashbag and returned to the
waiting arms of his girlfriend.
that about?” Bety’s hand rose to gently caress his face, concern in her
family stuff. It’s all good.” He kissed
her forehead, before running and tackling Archie to dunk him under the water.
A few hours
later, after a small fire had been made, Betty and Jughead walked hand in hand
down the beach, away from their chattering friends.
Joaquin an out.” Betty stopped, turning in front of her boyfriend to face him.
take it?” she asked tentatively, worried that he might suddenly clam up.
Talking about the Serpents still wasn’t easy for him, even after she had met
exactly. I told him to think about it.” Jughead paused, taking a deep breath
before continuing. “I don’t want him to wind up like my dad. Kevin deserves
better than the life my mom had.”

He whispered into her hair.

I’ve mentioned this to @woodface and I’ll put it here too:
If Man of Steel can have a TV show spinoff, Krypton, as a prequel then surely there can be a miniseries about pre-Themysciran Amazons and how Hippolyta Spartacus’d the Amazons from slavery with Antiope, Philippus, and Menalippe and got the gods to fight for them and even got a daughter and a protected Island paradise to boot!
I decided I needed a project to work on while watching tv and I wanted to try out some cool cable patterns I found so I made a sleeve for my laptop. I’m pretty happy with how it came out and continue to be in love with interlace designs.
Alright so this is how it's gonna go down. Or maybe not. But it'd be cool if it did.
*at the end of Deadpool 2 about to go to the future in a grand self-sacrificing manner like he always does*
Don't. Don't say 'thank you'. Don't say 'I'm proud of you'. Don't say 'goodbye'.
... You're zipper is down.
*looks down like a schmuck*
*uses the distraction to just fucking swoop in and kiss Wade. Its your typically movie kiss, swelling music and lights dancing in the background and it's cliche as shit but it's also fucking glorious.*
Made you look.
*flustered at being caught off guard and that cable actually fucking kissed him (!!!) but trying to play it off*
You are so immature.
*they break off and Cable goes to the whatever mcguffin that'll take him to the future*
*while leaving* Thank you. Im proud of you. Goodbye.
Then we could have a flash of blue light and a thing (that would hint the plot of deadpool 3) could pop out of nowhere with a note that says "a gift from the future xoxo"
