but no older than 13

Let it never be forgotten that my brother is 13 years older than me, and when he went off to college I was deeply entrenched in my “The Little Mermaid” obsession, and when he and a group of friends went out to a karaoke place, there was a group of girls having fun singing Disney songs and my brother got up and busted out a perfect rendition of “Under the Sea” and long story short I was the reason my brother met his wife.

The new Young American Tracking Poll (YATP) is a first-of-its-kind quarterly survey and report that focuses on the opinions and behaviors of Americans between the ages 13 and 25 on topics in politics, policy, and civic engagement.

From its annual surveying of young Americans conducted since 2013, DoSomething.org and TMI Strategy launched the YATP in order to elevate the voices of young people in discussions of national policies and priorities. The poll brings attention to the distinct ways young millennials and Gen Z participate in their civic communities, which often contrast from beliefs and actions found in the general adult population in America.

Most often, young people are defined as 18–29 and so thinly sampled that additional segmentation within the group is impossible. And for the voices of those under 18? Nothing.

Specifically, the YATP provides an alternative to the standard approaches taken by traditional polling towards young people. Most often, young people are defined as 18–29 and so thinly sampled that additional segmentation within the group is impossible. This approach mutes the nuances of youth experience and opinions. The circumstances of someone in her late teens are very different than someone in her late twenties. And even with more narrow age-bracketing, there are major differences between urban and rural youth, male and female, and so on.

And for the voices of those under 18? Nothing. Most national polls omit 13- to 18-year-olds entirely from sampling, thereby silencing millions of young people who disproportionately rely on and are impacted by policy decisions.

Summary of Key Findings

The YATP finds that young Americans overwhelmingly disapprove of Donald Trump and his policies. For all areas where a direct comparison is possible, youth disapproval of Trump exceeds that of the general population. Specifically, American youth disproportionately disagree with Trump’s actions regarding immigration and border security.

In the months since the election, young people significantly increased their participation in organized protests, their use of technology to take and promote positions on social issues, and their use of social networks to organize others to take action.

This strong disapproval of Trump corresponds with a perceptible increase in civic participation from young Americans. In the months since the election, young people significantly increased their participation in organized protests, their use of technology to take and promote positions on social issues, and their use of social networks to organize others to take action.

Self-identified young “liberals” — one third of all young people — are driving the increase in civic participation almost entirely. This group has been two to three times more likely to take action than self-identified “moderate” or “conservative” peers since the November election.

Additionally, across a broad set of issues and policy areas, America’s young people are increasingly taking sides. On nearly every issue/policy asked about in the YATP, the percent of young people with no opinion decreased following the election.

The biggest gains in agreement went almost exclusively towards traditionally liberal positions. On topics ranging from climate change, to immigration reform, to the legalization of marijuana, a new consensus is forming among young Americans.

On topics ranging from climate change, to immigration reform, to the legalization of marijuana, a new consensus is forming among young Americans.

On several issues and policy areas, young liberals diverge from young moderates and young conservatives. The Women’s March in Washington, D.C. and identification with feminism are resoundingly unpopular with young moderates and young conservatives but are popular with young liberals. On issues of religion and security, young moderates and young conservatives are noticeably more skeptical of refugees and concerned by terrorism than are their young liberal peers.

Blood (Batmom x Damian Wayne)

Originally posted by sixofclovers

Request:Hi! :D a Batmom request where Damian meets Batmom and doesn’t accept her motherly love towards him until some paparazzi commented something about how she feels knowing Damian isn’t her blood son and is Bruce’s blood son. Like Batmom says some inspirational stuff about blood doesn’t define family. I mean, she knows Bruce wasn’t in consent..but I’m sure the press doesn’t know that part of the story.

I totally stole that “family don’t end with blood” from Bobby Singer from Supernatural. Oops.

Tagging: @crazyfangirl1810


You had been dating Bruce for two months before you met his kids. 

It wasn’t on purpose, you’d just been visiting the manor to return Bruce’s coat to him. He’d lent it to you on a cold night on one of your dates.

Tim was on the couch with his laptop, drinking what was probably his 6th cup of coffee that day. Damian was in his room doing God knows what. Dick was visiting and he stood in front of Damian’s door, attempting to get him to play a video game with him.

A very loud “GO AWAY GRAYSON” startled you as you walked through the door. It probably wasn’t a good idea to come here uninvited. 

Alfred had been the one to open the door but he quickly walked off after excusing himself. By the delicious smell that wafted through the manor, you assumed he was cooking.

“Uh, excuse me?” You said timidly. Tim looked up for the first time and he gaped like a fish. If you weren’t so nervous you would have laughed at his face. 

“You… You’re not a slut?” He whispered, but you still heard. You were confused and unsure if you should be insulted. A loud TT startled you and you looked behind you to find a young boy, no older than 13.

You assumed it was Damian and smiled lightly. “Don’t be so quick to assume, Drake.” He said cockily. “She could still be a whore.”

You were flabbergasted at his language and rudeness. Had the 13-year-old son of the most amazing man you’d ever dated just call you a whore? 

You stood there, shocked. An older man who stood beside the boy nervously chuckled. You assumed he was Dick.

“I’m terribly sorry. Damian has.. well, no filter.” He said quickly. You brushed it off, not wanting to make a bad impression. Too late, you thought bitterly.

“It.. It’s okay.” You managed. Dick gave you a dazzling smile and charm radiated off of him. “I’m Dick, this is Damian and Tim,” He said, pointing at respective persons. 

Damian just scoffed. “What are you doing here, harlot?”  

You nearly fell over from shock. This kid seriously had issues.

“I-I’m here for Bruce. I wanted to return his coat.” You lifted it up as proof.

Bruce finally arrived after you stuttered that out. “Apologies, I was in my study.” He rushed toward you. “Y/N, these are my kids.” He smiled.

You stood there shell-shocked for a moment before smiling lightly. “We met.” You say, a bit of an offended tone to your voice.

You seem to remember what you came for and lifted up his coat. “I, uh, brought your coat,” You let out a shy, cute smile. You handed it to him and said your goodbyes quickly, ignoring Damian’s glare as you said goodbye to him.

After that, you made it your mission to get Damian to like you.

You tried everything. You made him breakfast, which he threw into the trash immediately because he “doesn’t like blueberry pancakes”. You tried to get into what he liked, which was swordplay apparently. You studied for weeks, and he had you beaten in seconds. He insulted you and pointed out your flaws. You were embarrassed, but you didn’t give up.

Bruce offered to speak to him about his behavior but you declined. He’d never like you if you had Bruce talk to him.

It had been 3 months after you met and still, nothing changed.

Until one night. You were attending an auction with Bruce and he had brought Damian along.

Bruce had been answering some questions and you were getting desperate for a drink. You walked over to Damian, hopeful. “Hi, Damian.” You greeted brightly. 

He didn’t answer, he just looked away. At least he didn’t call you a harlot.

You didn’t give up. “Come get a drink. Non-alcoholic, of course.” 

He looked back at you, rolling his eyes. “You’re lucky I’m thirsty.”

You nearly jumped for joy but instead smiled and made your way toward the bar. You were interrupted by a reporter. 

“Y/N, you’re dating the Bruce Wayne, aren’t you?” She questioned quickly. You smiled nervously, not prepared. “Yes, I am.” 

“What’s it like? How do you feel about his children?” 

You were growing uncomfortable but answered anyway. “It’s amazing. He is a perfect gentleman. His children are wonderful.” 

Damian was growing annoyed. “Is that all?” He snapped. The reporter looked at him as if she just realized he was there. 

An idea popped into her head and she smiled cockily. “How do you feel about Damian? After all, he isn’t your blood child but he is Bruce’s.” 

Damian nearly started to verbally attack the woman but you answered. “I think of Damian as a son. He might not be my blood, but blood doesn’t make family.” 

You continued, “Family doesn’t end with blood. Family’s got your back, even when it hurts. That’s family. And I consider the Wayne’s to be my family.”

Damian and the reporter looked at you, shocked. Bruce, who was lurking, smiled. You really were perfect.

“Well, I think we should get going.” Bruce smiled at the reporter as he guided you and Damian out of the building.

When you got to the manor Bruce excused himself, leaving you and Damian alone.

You were about to go upstairs when Damian spoke up. “Did you mean that? About family.” 

You turned and smiled at him lightly. “Every word.” 

He nodded, walking away and going up the stairs to his room.

The next morning you were making breakfast, humming along to a song you had in your head. Damian walked toward the kitchen counter and huffed loudly.

You turned your head and smiled. “Good morning, Damian.” His cheeks had a red tint to them and he coughed. “I had a particularly hard training session today. I request blueberry pancakes.” 

You grinned and started cooking.

When they finished, you and Damian sat eating breakfast together. You started to truly feel like a family.

After all, family don’t end with blood.

-The Playground-

Reasons why my grandmother is absolutely precious

- gasped when my mum used the dimmer to lower the lights and called it witchcraft
- took my cousins, my brother and me to see ice age 2 when it came out, didn’t like it and cried because “the animals were in danger!”
- calls the App Store “the market”
- cried for half an hour after I told her I was trans because she was devastated by the thought of me suffering in silence for years
- thought my mum’s friend’s boyfriend was the pizza delivery guy (because he picked up our pizza on the way over) and was completely chill thinking that we just invited some random pizza delivery guy in to have dinner with us.
- asked said boyfriend if the other pizzas in his car wouldn’t get cold.
- thinks frank iero is a random buddy of mine who just happens to be good at playing guitar.
- told me to tell him she says hi.
- was completely delighted when I told her he said hi back.
- asked if I had a crush on him and when I said kinda yeah she told me to try and get in his pants
- tried to give me tips on how to seduce him.
- reacted to “he’s 13 years older than me and married” with “age is just a number, you’re all adults and maybe his wife is into that”
- asks me how he’s doing every time I see her
- still won’t recognise him in photos and thinks every photo of frank is a photo of me.

- when my greatgrandfather wouldn’t pay for their wedding dinner she sneakily handed my grandpa money under the table so he could pay for it and wouldn’t be embarrassed (fucking 60’s) because my grandfather had to give everything he earned to his parents (who wouldn’t pay for dinner)
- tried to save my father from my mum (her daughter) multiple times because she was scared he’d get hurt

The ultimate Steven Universe conspiracy: 

In Greg the Babysitter, Vidalia’s babysitter can’t work because of a “death in the family” (which is revealed to be a hamster).

Vidalia also mentions that this babysitter is 12 years old at the time, which means they’re about 12-13 years older than Sour Cream. If Sour Cream is currently somewhere between 15-18, this would mean the babysitter is currently in their late 20s, early 30s. Most people in the show are either “parent age” (Greg, Vidalia, Mayor Dewey), “teen age” (Sadie, Cool Kids, Ronaldo), or “kids age” (Connie, Onion, Petey). This leaves but one option:

Which leads me to the most important fact in the entire show: Jamie the Mailman used to have a hamster.

This is the original story I’ve been planning for…guess what…11 YEARS!

Synopsis: In the democratic empire of Siaron, the majority race (Siari) are masters, the minority race (Oriens) are slaves. Many of the Oriens have tried to escape to no avail - they are kept in perpetual servitude by a mysterious addictive drug administered by force. Yet there is a seed of rebellion amongst the oppressed. Those who yearn to roam free hide in the darkness, waiting for a saviour to unite and deliver them. A exodus-like tale of racism, freedom, genius and our capacity to love the unlovable

Title: A Genius Bows to None

Format: Light novel with several drawings each chapter. 1 chapter released every fortnight! (When I’m ready haha). All content will be free.

Genre: Fantasy, Adventure, Slash (safe for work)

*************************************************************************************************

Vivo: A slave boy serving the household of the Caliph (King). He is actually a genius, a youth with a mind so brilliant that he will one day lead armies, conquer nations and lead his people to freedom. 

Cair: A prince of sorts, son of the Caliph. He is gentle, strong and kind - the people’s favourite. Through unlikely circumstances, he befriends the slave boy Vivo. Together, they embark on an epic and dangerous journey to change their world. His hair is red.

Hansa: Vivo’s younger twin. Also a slave of the household - a young woman so brave that she can bend her own destiny. Mischievous, outspoken and strangely elegant, she will become a beacon of hope for the oppressed. 

*************************************************************************************************

It’s really tough starting an original - if you love it, a signal boost will really help me! :) 

Of course there’re many more characters, and I’ll be taking this story quite seriously from now. I’ve started on this since I was 13 and watched these characters grow from older than me to younger than me! I’ve just turned 24, and I’m ready to bring this story to life! It’s my voice to speak about everything I care about - racism, equality of love, Asian culture, law and human nature. There’s a wonderful and massive world I want to share with you - see you on the road! :)

Do you have trivia on Izaya?

I decided to do this just because. Got some help from Ruka and sloppily threw this together. WARNING FOR SPOILERS FROM NOVEL 13 AND BEYOND.

  • Izaya has called Kadota “Dotachin” since high school [source]
  • Izaya got ‘noticed’ in high school by Kine as someone who could work for awakusu (although he didn’t start really working for them until after).
  • In regards to the awakusu, Izaya is hired more as a third party by Shiki who believes in the power of information over brawn
  • According to Shinra, Izaya has a very brittle heart. Which is why he avoids getting it hurt by instead choosing to love ‘all of humanity’.
  • Mikado seems to be the only character from Durarara!! that Izaya regrets/wishes to get into contact with again after the events of Durarara 13. [source]
  • Izaya is younger than Shinra but older than Shizuo and Kadota [source]
  • Izaya explains in volume three that the girls who follow him were abused by either their families or their lovers. (Girls such as Saki)
  • When asked if there was meaning behind Izaya’s rings and jacket Narita joked that ‘there may be meaning! or none at all! I haven’t decided yet!’ [source]
  • It’s been said time and time again but Narita has specifically said that although Izaya loves all humans equally, in terms of sexual desire he is ‘normal’. Translators think this was Narita’s nice way of saying he is heterosexual. [source]
  • In Izaya’s novel it is implied that Izaya refuses to seek rehabilitation for his broken body because it is his way of accepting the fact that he ‘lost against Shizuo. In contrast Shizuo doesn’t think either of them won or lost because both of them lived. [source]
  • In Izaya’s novel, the boy pushes Izaya in his wheelchair while Izaya drinks Barley tea out of a wine glass. [source]
  • In volume 13 Izaya was prepared to die to prove what a monster Shizuo  is. 
  • At the end of Durarara and into Izaya’s novel it is implied that he has become traumatized by his fight with Shizuo [source]
  • Izaya pays Namie 260k a year [source]
  • Izaya is ‘repelled’ from Aoba due to their similarities [source]
  • When he met Aoba Izaya was pretending to be his cram school tutor [source]
  • When asked if Izaya has any love experience, Narita said that was a spoiler which fans believe was a reference to mikage. [source]
  • Orihara isn’t an uncommon surname. Narita chose it to stress Izaya’s ordinary origins. [source]
  • Izaya, however, is a very unusual name. While it was meant to be related the prophet Isiah there is a lot more complications to it. I’d suggest reading up on it here
  • In volume 6 Izaya was stabbed on his birthday [source]
  • Izaya hates dead fish eyes [source]
  • Izaya likes any food that can tell him about the personality of the person who made it [source]
  • He dislikes compressed/canned/junk food [source]
  • Narita has said that Izaya loves food and eats out often. [source]
  • In elementary school Izaya was a straight A honor roll student [volume 9 iirc]
  • His family members are: his grandparents Orihara Torakichi and Natsu, his parents Orihara Shirou and Kyouko, and the twins. [source]
  • His parents worked for a trading company and were overseas frequently and for long periods of time. It is noted that his parents work wasn’t a factor in the formation of who Izaya is, but that lack of contact with them might have helped in that formation. [source]
  • Izaya is the reason why the twins turned out like they are [volume 9]
  • Izaya’s record is spotless save for a corrective guidance due to ‘stabbing Shinra’ in middle school. Corrective guidance being not juvenile delinquency but something more like a ‘plan’ to prevent it from happening again [source]
  • Izaya’s cover for his information brokering is that he is a Financial planner [source, also Durarara SH]
  • While most information brokers get information from the source (night club workers, etc) Izaya has done better by instead using other information brokers as his sources/network. [source]
  • Izaya gets alot of his information from Shinichi Tsukumoya.
  • Shishizaki-senpai was the only person who could catch Izaya.
  • He was viewed as a loner in elementary school. But whenever people realized he was left out they’d often fight over him. [source]
  • Izaya initially thought ‘Shizu-chan’ was a girl. He later adopted that nickname and used it when he met Shizuo. [source]
  • When he is using a fake name Izaya always claims he is 21.  [source]
  • On Izaya’s anime driver’s license it says he wears glasses. I don’t know how much I believe this though since the name on the license was ‘Nakura’.
  • Izaya fears death more than anyone and reveres heaven more than anyone. But he’d rather spend eternity in hell rather than to become ‘nothing’ [volume 2? or 3 iirc]
  • Izaya doesn’t deny his involvement in causing the ruin of other people. He acknowledges that he pushes people knowing what they will do but chooses to do so in order to see if they will exceed his expectations. [Volume 3 and later to Akabayashi]
  • Izaya weighs himself after every daily shower [volume 9]
  • Both Shiki and Namie refer to Izaya as ‘Loki’ at different points

I know some people claim that Izaya’s favorite fruit? Is a red apple? I have never seen a source for this (and trust me, I’ve looked) so yeah I don’t believe that whatsoever. (Not gonna say it is bs but unless someone shows me a source it doesn’t sound reliable). But I think that is pretty much all I have/can think of from the top of my head in regards to Izaya. Read volume 9 for more!! (No seriously, if you’re an izaya fan you need to read volume 9 if you haven’t already)

Has anyone written something where Sportacus and Robbie have the same age difference as Magnus and Stefán?

Like it’s Robbie’s first birthday since Sport came to town and he’s so upset cause he’s turning 30.

Then, Sportacus is all like, ‘It’s okay Robbie. I just turned 43 my last birthday.’

Then, Robbie is conflicted between (1) being younger, and therefore in his mind sexier, (2) the fact that a man 13 years older is in way better shape than him, and (3) Sport already being a teenager when he was born.

when ???? stevidot ???? shippers???? complain ???? about???? su ???? critical????????? u literally ship a pedophilic relationship quit trying to act high and mighty ok thx

So if McCree is only five years older than Pharah who’s likely around 12 or 13 in that picture (maximum 16) then it kinda stands to reason that McCree’s origin story of “former criminal offered a choice between Overwatch and Jail by Reyes” sound a lot more like “juvenile offender whose life was turned around by Gabriel Reyes who who decided helping him do good in the world was a better idea than just sending him to jail”

roseworks  asked:

I wonder what Sans and Papyrus whould be like if they were raised by the fires? And Gaster stopped looking after them.

Ohhh that’s a fun little thought exercise

Papyrus and Fuku are best besties and Twins even though Fuku ages far slower than Papyrus does -leaving him aging about half as older. (13, her 7) Papyrus himself isn’t too different, although he’s more popular with snowdin kids being a local from the start, and into music instead of fine arts.

Papyrus doesn’t really become curious about his biological father until he’s a little older, having only heard stories from Sans. This makes him all the more mysterious to Papyrus. Grillby and Ember worry how Papyrus will react upon learning more, but soon learn that Papyrus has zero desires to live with Gaster. He’s Papyrus Fire, after all! His home is in snowdin.

Sans (who wears the glasses to look more like grillby) wouldn’t be as close with Papyrus, and having left snowdin for a several years to pursue science and having 2 very active parents care for his sibs. He eventually decided to quit and become Grillby’s apprentice.

While in college, Gaster and Sans briefly meet. The meeting was happenstance, and horribly awkward. Soon after, Gaster’s health began to fall and Sans took it upon himself to leave school to care for him.

The two cleared up a lot of misunderstandings and hurt feelings, mourning the loss of the years taken from them. Gaster chooses to never meet Papyrus -much to Papyrus’ disappointment. When Gaster passes away, Sans changes his mind about science and went back to snowdin.

Kind of a mixed-bag of a timeline, really.

anonymous asked:

Can you do a Jason Todd x reader where Jason sleeps over for the first time

You are the best thing I ever dreamed about [Jason Todd]

I am not sure if this what you wanted but here it goes. 

Jason Todd x Reader
Red hood is having the first sleepover at readers house.
[loosely follows the events of ‘Red Hood and Arsenal’]

Mentions Joker’s daughter
Requested

Nightmares were the main reason that you started having sleepless nights. Sleepless nights lead to sleepless months and sleepless month in no time turned into insomnia. You lived on coffee, at times you wondered if you had more coffee in our veins than blood if someone came and told you that you have more coffee than blood you would not be surprised.
You lay in your bed because there is nothing else you can think of doing. Your mom used to say count sheep that night. You try to do at everyone in a while but it doesn’t work, you try to count but all you can think of are reasons not to sleep. Your eyes feel heavy and your head hurts, it has been a few day and you have been feeling under the weather. It was at this moment that you heard a knock on your window, you groaned before getting up. In your balcony stood Jason Todd with his red hood helmet in his hand. His jacket stained with blood and there seemed to be a bullet in his left shoulder. You knew why he came here, to get treatment, this wasn’t the first time. You just didn’t know that why he came to you and reveal his secret identity.
“Come on in.” You say as you open the window. He drags himself into your room, you make him sit on your bed.
“Did you drink a lot of coffee again?” He asks you, his voice dry and coarse. You pick up water from your nightstand and pour it into a glass.
“I am insomniac. I don’t think that coffee had a lot of roles in it.” You say as you help him drink water. After he drank water, you help him take off his jacket then vest and shirt. It doesn’t matter how many times you see him shirtless, it always takes your breath away. He winces when you pull his shirt from his wound.
“Rough night?” You like talking to Jason and you never really met beyond the little medical visits that he made when he was heavily wounded. One time, you saw him in the cafe near your old medical school- you went there to give a guest lecture, you were filling out for a professor there. You realized that Jason was there with one of your students, i.e. Tim Drake and a little boy who could not be older than 13 years. Jason called him demon spawn in the coffee shop. You never asked him because you were sure that he didn’t see you.
“It was nothing you should have seen the other guy.” Jason starts taking about his night, “There was a hostage situation, it was difficult this time, not because of the kidnapper, they were easy peasy once we got Joker’s daughter get to follow the orders.” You almost jabbed the needle in his shoulder when you heard ‘joker’s daughter’. It wasn’t like you were jealous of her or anything, it was just she pissed you and you have never even met her. Jason talked about her a lot and you didn’t know how it made you feel. He talked about Joker’s daughter as much as Arsenal and if Jason had made himself clear that he was straight you would have believed that he was in love with Arsenal. He once brought Arsenal too but you had no idea what his real name was. Jason said that reviling his identity was his decision and he is not going to make that decision for Arsenal, you wanted to ask why did he reveal his identity in the first place but Arsenal needed tending and you thought that your curiosity could wait.
“Ugh, you still are with Joker’s daughter? I thought that she might have betrayed you by now.” You try to comment cooly, although you did she see the slight smile playing on his lips and you made a point to make next stitch harshly. He did wince slightly the next stitch and now, it was your turn to smile.
“Well, Arsenal thought that too but she has been a great help so far.”
“That makes it a trio. I hope that you are not thinking about making it into a team because I am moving away and I am not going to stitch you guys up anymore.” You inform him as you finish stitching up. When you look at him he looks truly shocked.
“You are moving away.” He asks.
“Yeah,” You say as you sit next to him on your bed, “My sister is shifting to Bludhaven and I am going to be living with her for a year and I am also offered a job as a professor there.” You inform him.
“You know Nightwing doesn’t do a job a good job. I do a better job.” You laugh.
“You know what, Jason it almost sounded like you wanted me for a second there.” You smile, slightly before picking up his bloody clothes. You had some of [Your Guy Best friends name] clothes that you offered him and he raised his eyebrow.
“I don’t want your boyfriend’s clothes,” Jason said. He looks the other way.
“These are not my boyfriend’s clothes. These are my guy best friends clothes and he is happily in a relationship.” You say to Jason as you shake the head at him and laugh.
“What made you think that I had a relationship?” You ask. He for some reason blushes and you know for sure that he blushes.
“Oh my god, you are blushing Jason. If I didn’t know you ant better, I would think that you had a crush on me.” You say as you try and straighten up your bed.
“What if I did?” He says and it shocks. You just sat down.
“I would be, well, speechless.” You say and Jason next you.
“And then?”
“well, then you go and wash my face just to make sure that I am awake.”
“Do you dream about me?” He asks. You do dream about him but there is not much talking involved in your dreams.
“Well, I may or may not have dreams in which you may or may not have made an appearance.” You say. You hardly ever dream but when you dream it is usually nightmares or about Jason. Dreams about Jason are surprisingly soothing.
“Well, I can tell you now, I usually dream about you,” There is a brief pause and Jason licks his lip, “But there isn’t much talking there usually.” This time you don’t hold back and you just kiss him. Kissing him is like a battle scene. He tastes like blood and mint. There is a something new and it burns every part of you. His lips are sweet and cold, he bites your bottom lip and you moan. You continue kissing for a while when winces because of his injury. You laugh.
“I forgot that I just stitched you up. You need to rest.” You say. He pouts. “I am serious, Jason.” This time laughs. He starts to wear [Your guy best friend’s name]’s clothes.
“Should I come back tomorrow?” Jason asks as he picks up his helmet.
“Yeah, sure but I think that you should stay here tonight.” You say as you nervously bite your lip.
“I was hoping you would say that my apartment is way too far,” Jason says as he kisses you again. This time he tastes like roses and you cup his face too. When you both lay in bed and you trace his lips.
“You know that I am still moving to Bludhaven right?” You say and smile drops from his face.
“I know. Can’t you sister move here?” He asks.
“I wish she could. She says that she isn’t me.” Jason raised his eyebrows.
“What does this mean?”
“Well, My parents died here in a car accident. I and My sister were in the car. She says that she walk on these roads and not think about it. Batman was fighting some huge supervillain, I still don’t know what his name was.” You stop for a second before continuing. He threw an electric pole at the car. It crushed the front of the car, my dad died instantly and my mother died two days later after we put her through the ventilator. My sister was in a coma for two months after that. I was 18 and all alone. None of the relatives were ready to take care of me. So, it was just me and my parent’s left a really good amount with money. I never really had time to mourn about my parents was always busy figuring out the adult stuff.” You turn away as you realize that you started crying. You don’t really like crying in front of people. You just wipe your tears and Jason rubs circles in your back. Give you time calm down.
“I think that you really brave and I am glad that I came to know you.” You, finally turn towards him and give him a small smile.
“You so fucking beautiful.” He says as he removes your hair out of your face.
“You know, this first time in a long time that I am sharing my bed with somebody.” Jason actually looks surprised when you tell him this.
“Well, what? Why?” You giggle at him.
“Yeah, I always make excuses not to share the bed. I really don’t like people invading my personal space.” You start tracing his face. You start from his cheekbone and then to his lips, you are distracted due to the beautiful boy in front of you.
“Then why am I allowed to share the bed?” He asks, smiling at you.
“You make me feel, well, a lot of things and I read somewhere you should sleep next to people who make you feel peaceful, it helps you sleep.” You said, slightly dozing off.
“You know that I am vigilante and freelancer, right?” You lick your lips before saying in a sleepy state.
“No, you are Jason Todd. You are the most beautiful guy whom I ever laid eyes on and you like to call your little brother Devil’s spawn. You are Jason Todd, the guy who will keep me safe because he likes to dream about me…” You trail off.
“If I am honest, You are the best thing I ever dreamed about,” Jason tells your sleeping figure.

Soulmate AU: Soulmates Get Reincarnated with Their Memories Usually Intact

P/N = Previous Life’s Name


The images were usually very fragmented and fuzzy for you but if you focused hard enough and just long enough, you could make them out.

It was the 70s, you were in a hospital bed, and you could see his silhouette. He was tall yet the furthest thing from intimidating, even as he stood over you, saying something. You could never really make out exactly what the words were, but judging by the tone of concern that surrounded them, you could tell that they were words of worry. Maybe even a light scolding. You felt his hands cup your face and his lips pressed to your forehead. If you looked down, you’d see that your leg was in a large cast.
