you know, you don’t need to diminish the value of one character in order to justify liking another one. it’s okay to like morally wrong or less ~pure~ characters (and believe they can change) without having to knock down other characters, who lets face it, haven’t done anything wrong comparatively
Barry’s only serious slip up was the whole proposal issue, and even then he was misguided in his desperation to protect her.
That boy bends over backward to make sure she’s safe & happy & feels loved. He supports her in her career & never ceases gushing abt how much he loves her & how amazing she is. He does things like turning their kitchen into iHop & making her name in flowers & speeding them out to a romantic dinner in a gazebo on the waterfront.
That boy KNOWS he’s lucky to have her. He worships the ground she walks on. His one desire when leaving her to go into the SF was to keep living her life, keep being the amazing, fierce ray of sunshine that she is & keep RUNNING.
Iris is a saint & that whole proposal business was screwy, but he’s MORE than made up for it since then. Let’s not pretend like Iris isn’t just as lucky to have Barry as he is to have her. Barry is more than his screw ups, and he’s made up for them every time. Devoting his year to saving her life and then sacrificing the life they’d hoped to have together to save the world and her??? You can’t get much more selfless than that.
Plz stop hating on Barry for being human in the face of tragedy. Not everyone can be as perfect as Iris West.
hi y’all it’s been about 3 weeks if i remember right and i have hit 250 followers that i don’t deserve. thank you all for being so supportive of my bruce and so patient with slow replies. they do come, but when i’m free and i’ve always tried my best to make it onto the dash just to reblog something if i’m not actually fit to write drafts. i do have many many trials and tribulations and it is not easy at all to find the time to come onto the dash. thank you for embracing bruce with wide open arms as mine are mere noodles. there are a couple of people to specifically thank who’ve made the beginning of this journey exciting.
THE JUSTICE LEAGUE (omg i actually have a justice league dsfdsasda):
@americanasitgets dang son, thank u for supporting me since i was born. or from my joker blog basically, which is where i remember meeting you from — we had those times where everyone started writing about how small joker’s dick must be. now i know it’s because bruce wayne’s dick is bigger. i do have a lot more to say about your love and portrayal of supes and how long you’ve stuck, but even words couldn’t craft the picture m8.
@fowllplay can you please just stop being so perfect. i’ve followed oswald from my gotham blog and i think you’ve been around for way longer. you’re a veteran and the show will always live on in my heart in the au version that you imagine, because the writers have obviously fucked everything up. your writing is just amazing and encompasses all of oswald. your passion for him shines through and i’d like you to continue writing him in the way you see fit. i’ll support u
@rvnsaway wow your barry really– i’m speechless. he’s so ic and he makes me laugh and he tests bruce so much that he rethinks recruiting him but he needs barry to be around. you’re just writing him so well and effortlessly and i hope we can continue their development and go through the jl movie coming and going together because i’m sure our hcs will be fresh
@atlantisking m8 you are so passionate about your character and i just love looking at your reblogs and your development or arthur even though he hasn’t seen screentime yet. don’t worry jl is coming soon and we can all cry in the cinema from raw awesomeness. hope you get to see them at the premiere!
@catburglr thank you for being around and choosing to write cat and give her a life outside of those comic pages. it has been fun watching you explore her facets and your fc is flawless. your crops are so nice and something i could never do myself. your portrayal has been so good and wonderful and for all intents and purposes, you should have way more recognition just for your writing alone bc that’s your merit.
@aboutwinning (& @faxwhispering ) harvey is the most important thing in your life and it’s been so nice talking to you and discussing things. you /are/ harvey specter and you are basically living his life. you act and sound like him and you’re also nice lol! your writing gives me life and i’m sure it gives your other rp partners life too.
IMPORTANT NINJAS I WISH I COULD GET TO KNOW BETTER there should be 3 tiers - ppl from my previous blogs, ppl i rp with here, and those i haven’t - but if i do that i’ll actually miss people out. ppl from gotham - you know who u are! i love ALL of you!
summary:Bucky x reader College AU. Now that you and Bucky are on the same page you just need to figure out how to make your relationship work.
word count: 648
warnings: fluff, angst (sorry)
a/n: when you try to write pure fluff, but you can’t help the angst…
“If we want to make this relationship work we have to…” You are searching for the right word.
“Communicate?”, Bucky suggests.
“Yes! We have to talk about our feelings and not…”
“Ignore each other?” Bucky smiles slightly.
“So basically the opposite of what I was doing…” He bites his lips and looks down, hands braced on his knees.
“Hey.” You wrap your arms around him, lay your head on his shoulder and give him a light squeeze. “All that matters now is where we go from here.”
He lifts his head and stares into your eyes.
Bucky’s blue eyes are shining, but all you can see is the love in his expression and the way he opens himself up for you, even though it is so hard for him.
You take his face in your hands and place a light kiss on his lips.
You start to let go, but he pulls you into his lap. You curl your fingers into the front of his shirt as he leans in for another kiss.
“Wow. I get that you just admitted your love to each other and all that, but can you stop being a fucking perfect couple for one second?”, Steve says as he closes the door.
“Heeey Steve.” You giggle as you slide off of Bucky and onto the couch, your legs splayed out on his lap.
Steve rolls his eyes and plops down next to Bucky.
“Where were you anyway, Steve?”, you ask, raising one brow.
Instantly Steve’s cheeks turn a deep red color.
“Aha.” You nod and point at Steve. “Yet here you are, complaining about us.”
Steve mumbles something uncomprehensive as he gets up and moves to the kitchen.
“You guys leave any food?”, he yells.
“There should still be some of Y/N’s lasagne.”
Under his breath Steve says something that sounds a lot like: “At least she’s good for something.”
You gasp audibly, clutching your chest. “Well, you won’t be enjoying my cooking skills for long.” You wink at Steve.
Now it’s on Steve to gasp. He stares at Bucky. “You’re not moving out, are you?”
Bucky laughs. “Nah, she’s just messing with ya.” He attacks your feet, tickling them relentlessly.
“Nooo! Stop!”, you giggle, squirming, legs kicking around.
Steve sits back down on the sofa and Bucky moves on to massaging your feet, which is definitely more enjoyable on your part.
Grabbing the remote Steve asks: “What do you want to watch?”
“Uh! See if Agent Carter is on!” You clap excitedly.
It’s late, Bucky is already asleep, but you are wide awake.
You are in his bed and he’s clutching you to his chest. Like he never wants to let you go.
Yet you cannot stop the doubt from crawling into your thoughts.
Is this going to last?
You have had good times before. Times were you were the ever loving couple, annoying Steve with your cuteness.
You should talk to Bucky about your feelings. Communicate.
But you don’t want to make him feel any worse than he already does. Make him feel like you blame him.
You feel stupid. You should be happy. This is what you wanted.
Yet you cannot stop the tears from falling.
And now you’re shaking and a loud, too loud, sob escapes your lips.
“What’s wrong baby?” Bucky begins to stirr beside you.
“Nothing, go back to sleep.” You try to keep your voice steady, but it is obvious that you have been crying.
“No, please don’t cry.” Bucky turns you in his arms so you are facing him and wipes away your tears.
“It’s just… what if this doesn’t last?” Another sob comes out.
“Hey,” He places his hands on your cheeks, making sure you are looking him in the eyes.
“I want to you. I need you. I am not letting you go. I am here with you, now and forever.”
