captains are better than everything else

I think I will only accept a lion shuffle if it’s literally everyone ends up with a different lion.

Like, oops, Allura was actually TOTALLY FUCKING WRONG about EVERYONE because she had literally just met them 20 minutes ago.

Black - Lance (sure okay why not let’s give it a shot I’m down to clown, develops leadership qualities, this is reminding me of the pirate captain from Stardust for some reason, ‘the heart of the team’, Will listen to everyone and make the right call (eventually))

Yellow - Keith (Really works with his impulsiveness tbh?, The yellow lion makes him slow down and think b/c he can’t just bolt in, Will pull back and make everyone think twice, Sees the Big Picture better than everyone else on the team, No your family/Allura are not more important than the rest of the entire universe guys)

Green - Hunk (nosy, interested in learning, wants to touch EVERYTHING, will steal and read your diary and go through your files, crazy smart and eager to question)

Red - Pidge (I’m gunna BREAK INTO THE GG and SIT AT YOUR COMPUTER AND READ YOUR FILES then SCREAM AT YOU, openly impulsive and quick to temper, often takes the bullheaded approach, Will do her own thing regardless of what others think)

Blue - Shiro (The one that keeps the group together and calm, Moral support and there to listen, Will encourage you and make you feel like you can do anything)

top 5 akaashi moments? 🌹

Top 5 Akaashi moments maybe? \( ^ . ^ )/

Oh yeah, let’s take some time to celebrate who is probably one of the most universally loved and fascinating characters in Haikyuu: the very much beautiful and utterly talented Akaashi Keiji! 

1. In Haikyuu we don’t say I love you, we say

and I think that’s beautiful

2. Two moments share the second place because petty Akaashi is my favorite Akaashi

3. I love this moment because it shows how much of a good strategist he is, how he has Bokuto’s best interest alwyas in mind…but mostly for the iconic PAIN-IN-THE-ASS-KUROO-SAN

4. TIME ELAPSED: 0,5 SECONDS. HONESTLY inside his head he doesn’t have a brain, he has The Room of Spirit and Time (yes, this is a Dragon Ball reference) (no wonder he’s the second most intelligent character of the series)

5. It doesn’t bug him if our enemy is strong. When everyone else on the team loses hope, he’s usually still pretty energetic. Despite everything, he’s pretty reliable”. His speech to Tsukishima tells everything you need to know about the person he really is. A loyal and supportive friend (*ahem*) who would rather die than saying a bad thing behind the back of his captain. Also, looking at this scene again I had the strong impression that Akaashi didn’t finish what he was saying to Tsukki, or better…we didn’t had to hear it all…

- bonus: when he saved Kageyama’s life during the summer training camp barbecue. LOOK AT THOSE REFLEX HE’S OUR SILENT HERO

anonymous asked:

curious, what is your opinion on someone else taking over the Cap mantle? as much as I love Sam/Bucky Cap (and Seb and Mackie), I feel like Chris' image is so tied to Cap that it may affect future Cap projects. thoughts?

I do not want Bucky as Cap. I just do not want it at all. Fundamentally I don’t want anyone but Chris as Cap, because you’re so right, he is that character. You couldn’t physically imagine anyone else playing Iron Man because Tony is Iron Man and Robert is that character, and it’s the same with Cap. Steve is Cap and Chris is the face and embodiment of that.

Having said this, if/when they do have someone else take on the mantle of Cap, it’s almost 100% going to be Bucky and I really really do not want that. And I’ll tell you as for why.

Bucky, mentally, is not in a good place at all. He doesn’t trust himself, he doesn’t see himself as good or decent or worth people’s help. He knows one person in this world and that person is Steve. He’s in the exact same position Steve was in when he woke up in 2011 and realised everyone and everything he knew, was gone. Difference is, Bucky has all of that, plus the knowledge that he was made murder innocent people for a terrorist organisation for 70 years. That is a depressed man. Sebastian has said that really, the knowledge that Steve was out there and then Steve actually being there is the only thing stopping Bucky from suicide. He is not a stable man. And this is with Steve alive. And Bucky adores Steve in the same way Steve adores Bucky. Bucky thinks that Steve is worth following into war, he thinks Steve is everything good. He thinks Steve is everything he thinks he himself is not.

So then, you kill Steve off, you take away that tether, you remove the one thing he knows and loves that is left on this world, and you’ve got an already depressed and unstable man, now dealing with extreme trauma and loss and heartache. Then going “Okay Buck, I know you hate yourself and you just lost everything, but what we’re gonna do is make you take on the identity of the most important person to you, that you just lost. How does that sound?”

Sounds fucking stupid is how it sounds. Bucky needs to see himself as a hero, as a good and decent man, just within himself, before he’s told “Be Cap, follow in the footsteps of Steve - the man you thought was everything, whilst you yourself feel like nothing”. It’s just not healthy. And to do that to him would be a massive disservice to the character, who frankly deserves so much better than what Marvel are giving him.

Sam however, Sam already knows he’s the shit. And yes, losing Steve would hurt Sam, they’re friends, there’s a love there, but it’s not nearly as soul deep as the connection between Steve and Bucky. So Sam would be hurt, he’d grieve and mourn, but he doesn’t also have a mountain load of self loathing and countless other problems to work through. So give Sam the shield, let a brother be Cap. It’d first of all be better storytelling for both of the characters, and second of all, a black man as the character that symbolises everything America should be? The values America should hold above all else? It would be fucking incredible, and quite frankly, ballsier than any other decision Marvel Studios have ever made. And also I wanna see little kids of colour hyped to dress up as Cap because like, Captain Freaking America looks like them. Make Sam Cap, it’s the better choice all round.

Oh Captain! // Steve Rogers x Reader (P1)

Pairing: Steve Rogers x POC Reader, Nat x Bucky (WinterWidow)
Word Count: 2k+
Warning: Language, Fluff, Smut, ‘Captain’ kink. This is a bit of a slow burn. I’m not sorry. 

Summary: How is Steve supposed to resist you when you call him Captain like that? How is anyone supposed to resist those god-forsakenly beautiful thighs? Naturally you both have to fuck it out; your only choice really. WinterWidow makes a brief appearance. Bonus: Tony Stark’s seal of approval.

A/N: Idk why my fics keep starting in the gym, maybe it’s a sneaky way of telling myself I need to work out more. Lmao, ignore me. I’m so sorry. This was supposed to me a short 500 or so word one shot but I’m a goddamn wordy ass ho with no self-control and a shitty understanding of the word ‘short’. Happy New Year everyone

I really want to know more about Hogwarts quidditch culture!!! We obviously know that they had a quidditch comp and each team had their own practices, but what about everything else!!

I want older students organising ‘second string’ teams where houses and year level don’t matter as long as you can play. And all the house teams know that Friday afternoons are for these friendly games, and they aren’t to book their practices sessions then. The various captains use these matches to scout out players for their next season.

I want to know about those who didn’t make the team forming practice sessions that go on all year, so next year they’re better than ever. I want to know about midnight matches being played in secret (McGonagall knows, she was the one that started them back in her day). 

I want to know more about Madame Hooch, does she do out of class flying lessons for students who never learnt to fly? Does she help captains draw up plans and discuss stratergies?

And what about Teacher/Student matches? I want to see McGonagall and Hooch absolutely dominating the student team, while the school watches in awe. 

And what about rough “”prison rules”” games played by 5th year up above only, where rules are out the window, anyone can catch the snitch and fouls aren’t a thing. I want post-exam free-for-all matches where the quidditch pitch is filled with hundreds of celebrating students.

I want more than just ‘each house plays each other once till we have a winner’ matches!!

I Hate You - Oliver Wood Imagine

A/N: hey, dearies! I got another Oliver Wood request! hope you like it lovies! :D

Anonymous said: Last Oliver Wood imagine was amazing. Could you write an other for me. (It’s ok if you don’t. I love you anyways ♡♥). Where Oliver always ignores her and treats her rudely but deep down he is mad for her. 

here we go! :D

Disclaimer: I don’t own Harry Potter! :D

Your name: submit What is this?

I Hate You!

“You’re doing it wrong!”

“I am not doing it wrong!” (Y/N) snapped frustrated.

(Y/N) rolled her eyes holding back an annoyed groan. She didn’t want to be Oliver’s partner. Why? You ask. Well, he hated her. The worst part was; she didn’t even know why. At first, he would always just ignore her but over the years he became a real ass to her. He was always looking for ways to taunt her and insult her and she was sick of it. She honestly didn’t know what she had done to make him hate her so much. But still, here she was making Volubilis Potion with him; or trying at least.

“Yes, you are!” Oliver said grabbing the jar of Syrup of Hellebore from her hand but she didn’t let it go.

“No! Give it!” she said pulling it towards her.

“Ugh! You stuck up, know-it-all drag!”

“Take that back you pompous Quidditch nut!”

Professor Snape came towards them but they both ignored him.  “Mr. Wood, Miss-”

“(Y/N)! Give it!”




Oliver wasn’t prepared for (Y/N) to let it go and he ended up dropping the whole thing on the cauldron making it explode all over Professor Snape’s face. The two students slowly turned to see their teachers face covered in soot. They both waited nervously for his reaction.

“You two. Detention. Tonight. My office” Professor Snape said; the pair resisting with everything they could to not laugh at the change of his voice. “And 50 points off Gryffindor” he said before walking to his desk again.

“Thanks a lot” Oliver snapped at her.

“Me? You’re blaming me? You dropped it!”

“Only because you wouldn’t let it go!”

“Enough!” they heard Professor Snape from the front of the class. “Out of my classroom” he said standing up. “NOW!”

“See what you did?” Oliver said once they were outside.

“UGH! You’re impossible!” (Y/N) snapped before walking away from him.

A/N: Two things to say:

1. All the love the first chapter recieved was so surprising. It’s the most notes I’ve ever had in a post, so THANK YOU!! <3

2. I honestly don’t know if I should pair reader with T’Challa or Bucky so any feedback would be appreciated. Please!! <3


It was the middle of winter in New York when Y/L waited in line to get coffee, “It’s that you? Miss, Y/L/N?” a voice came from behind.

She turned around to find a tall man, old, with his white hair combed to the side, “Doctor Brennan!” she greeted, “How have you been?”

“Same as always, but tell me about you, how’s your life after graduation?”

“A bit slow, I have to admit. Few jobs here and there, but nothing that sticks.”

“Well, that’s too bad, you’ve are one of the smartest students I’ve ever had,” he said with a smile, “matter of fact, I’m working with this company and I think you would be a great addition.”

She smiled at the prospect of a job, “Really, what company?”

“Oh, one that’s stood the test of time, are you interested?”

Y/L woke up, slowly. She opened and closed her eyes trying to adjust them to the light. She was still in the jet, only now strapped to one of the seats and hands handcuffed, “what the hell?” she asked disoriented. Last thing she heard was the soldier’s voice before everything went black, but now he was nowhere to be seen, she was sitting alone to one of the seats, and for what she could gather, the jet had taken off.

“You’re awake,” said a man walking towards her,  he took the seat opposite Y/N and strapping himself to the seat. He was tall, deep skin, and big brown eyes. His face was serious and he had a slight accent. She took a while, but recognized him as the king of Wakanda. The one that was fighting alongside Stark. Which made her wonder why would he be hanging with Captain America now.

Hey there, friends! People ask me all the time what they should read in the Marvel Universe. I figured this was a question a lot of new comic fans might have, so I’m gonna do my best to put together a little primer.

  • Book: Er, depends on the context. Can mean a single comic, can also mean the entirety of a title.
  • Trade: a collection of several comic books in one volume, like a graphic novel. Trades usually collect 6 books in a single volume, so Black Widow Volume 1: A Finely Tangled Web is Black Widow #1-6. They’re a way to read and own comics after the weekly (or biweekly or monthly or whatever) paper comics are unavailable.
  • Event: An event in comics is a major storyline that involves multiple, usually separate, titles. Events are big and have lasting repercussions on the entirety of a comic universe. Examples of events are Civil War and the upcoming Secret Wars/”Battleworld” books.
  • Crossover: A crossover in comics is just like a crossover in fanfic; it’s when two separate titles have the same storyline or appear in each other’s books.

Okay, got that down? Awesome! Here’s some suggestions on what you should read based on your favorite character. Well, er, the six main characters, because this got MAD LONG and I can’t even imagine doing everybody else who’s relevant in Ultron. Jesus.

ANYWAY. If your favorite character is…

  • and you also love Bucky: The Heroic Age will be fun for you, featuring Commander Rogers and Captain Barnes. Try the Avengers run from this era, written by Brian Michael Bendis. The Super Solider run is kinda weird but fun, too, like virtually everything Brubaker wrote. The art in Super Soldier and Secret Avengers during the Heroic Age is significantly better than the art in Brubaker’s previous runs imo.
  • and you want to know why people ship Steve/Tony: friend, read literally any Avengers run where Iron Man and Captain America are on the same team. But if you’re specifically wondering this, it’s time. It’s time for you to read Civil War and cry.
  • You can probably skip: I’m gonna get murdered for this, but Brubaker’s Captain America and Winter Soldier runs are fun to read for understanding the MCU and if you want a more comprehensive understanding of each character’s backstory, and some weird AF arcs like Bucky fighting a bear with pecs in a gulag while shirtless. BUT. The art is so aggressively Jean Claude Van Damme 90s it’s hard to look at (for me). If you hate that style, you’re probably fine Wiki-ing.
  • and you just want to read about Natasha: As much as I want Black Widow’s title to be written by a woman, honestly, her current run – written by Nathan Edmonson, with art by Phil Noto – is one of my favorites. The art is stunning and it’s chock full of fun cameos. Highly recommend. Two trades are available pretty much anywhere you can buy graphic novels, because she’s so popular.
  • and you want to understand why people ship Nat/Bucky: Welcome to the world of Ed Brubaker’s Winter Soldier, but be aware that the art is (sometimes) the kind of art where even if you can’t see Natasha’s face, you know exactly where both of her nipples are at all times. Also she spends a lot of this run being kind of a fighting fucktoy and advancing Bucky’s character development. Comics historically have not been written with ladies in mind, y’all. And yet there are a lot of good reasons to adore this comic, and there’s a reason it’s a classic.
  • You can probably skip: Literally anything Greg Rucka worked on. Ugh.
  • Update! Someone has informed me that Greg Rucka did not just work on this pornified nonsense (which admittedly is a different Black Widow, but new fans might not know that) but also worked on a title with Devin Grayson and J.G. Jones that I’ve never read that is apparently amazing. So now I’m gonna read it, and maybe you’d like to also. (Also, a bunch of you have asked why I don’t like Greg Rucka. I really like Greg Rucka! I just don’t like the shit in that first link.)
  • and you want to know what all the fuss is about because Renner’s Clint is kinda eh and you don’t really get why people are so into Clint: All the fuss is about Matt Fraction’s Hawkeye run with art by David Aja, which starts with a trade volume called My Life As A Weapon and also is an excellent introduction to Kate Bishop, who is also Hawkeye. People ADORE Clint largely because of Fraction’s run, honestly; there’s some other good Hawkeye stuff, but this one is the best.
  • and you want to see him make some use of himself as an Avenger: The Avengers West Coast run that started in the 80′s is pretty fun, tbh. There are two volumes of an omnibus of all West Coast Avengers stuff, and also some trade volumes. Plus you get a bunch of Wanda Maximoff!
  • Bonus: If you want something shorter and fun, try Widowmaker. It’s got Clint, Mockingbird, and Black Widow, and the art is pretty. (David Lopez, one of the pencillers, is currently working on Kelly Sue Deconnick’s Captain Marvel title.)
  • and you’re into something people have very divided opinions about: Planet Hulk is the kind of thing people love or hate, but it’s been rumored that the movies are going in this direction, so it might be worth checking out.
  • and you wanna see the Hulk destroy some stuff/are really into weird storylines: Yo, World War Hulk is a continuation of Planet Hulk and involves the Illuminati. It’s a crossover event as well, so there’s some fun extra X-Men stuff.
  • and you just want to get your Avengers fix: Avengers Assemble is great for anybody who wants the familiarity of the film characters, but in comic form. It’s funny, fun, and you get an intro to some other characters but it doesn’t feel overwhelming.
  • and you suspect he has a drinking problem: You’re right, and the arc where he confronts it is pretty damn good. It’s called Demon in a Bottle and it ran in 1979.
  • and you want to know more about Good Guy Tony: I hate to break it to you, but as Tony is one of my fave characters I can tell you this for sure: Tony Stark is a complicated, fucked up, deeply flawed person; he’s an enormous asshole; he’s selfish and egocentric and narcissistic. But also he has a bunch of Good Guy Tony moments. They are most notable, imo, in the Heroic Age immediately following Civil War, when he beats himself up constantly for being a dick. The Stark Resilient arc, written by Matt Fraction, is super duper good, collected in Invincible Iron Man volumes 5 and 6.
  • and the thing he was trying to do with his suit in IM3 was interesting to you, like what even was that: Totally read Extremis. It’s the arc that establishes Iron Man’s modern image.
  • but you also would like to support a book about a female character: The current Thor title has lady Thor. Dude-Thor makes several appearances. Also, it’s super good.
  • and you want to read more about Thor’s face-off with Thanos: That you can find in Jurgens’ Thor run, starting in Volume 1 and ending just before the events of Civil War.
  • and you want to know how this character came to be: Read Journey Into Mystery, which started as a horror comic and is just as delightful and pulpy as could be expected.


  • and you’re even reading this section:  READ HOUSE OF M, IT WILL CHANGE YOU, feel free to Google for context everyone does it
  • and you want to see her as an Avenger: Wanda was part of the West Coast Avengers for most of her time as an Avenger; start there. If you’ve already got that down because I also suggested it under Hawkeye, please feel free to read Uncanny Avengers.
  • A-Force is an upcoming title that will be written by G. Willow Wilson and Maguerite Bennet with art by Jorge Molina, and will feature an all-female Avengers team.
  • Captain America and the Mighty Avengers is fun as HECK and has Sam Wilson as Captain America, so go revel in that.
  • Captain Marvel by Kelly Sue Deconnick; Carol Danvers is a BAMF and there’s a GOTG cameo; several trade volumes are available
  • Ms. Marvel by G. Willow Wilson; yo I love this comic so much words can’t even do it justice; two trades are available with the third coming 6/23
  • Young Avengers by Jamie McKelvie and Kieron Gillan; this is for you if you’re constantly asking yourself who Kate Bishop is, or want more teen superheroes in your life; there’s an omnibus available and several trades
  • She-Hulk by Charles Soule; MY QUEEEEEEN; a few trade volumes are available, and to the best of my knowledge this arc is coming to a close very soon and will be available in total in trades

That’s it! That’s all I got! Remember that there is absolutely no shame in Googling the characters you like to figure out what you want to read, and wiki-ing the rest. Anybody who tells you that you can’t is a dick. Don’t listen to them!!


We met in a bar, as happened so many times to me. We hooked up in the bathroom, but it turned into something deeper. Days after the first hookup, I couldn’t get him out of my mind. So I texted him. 

“Let’s get dinner,” I wrote. He didn’t write me back for 3 days, but finally he agreed. 

I have never connected to someone that I hooked up with. We had everything in common: our high school, same major at the university (although I hadn’t finished mine), and we lived a block apart. It was so strange that we never had met before. 

I knew better than to have unprotected sex. In high school, my fertile sperm had gotten the captain of the football team pregnant and he had to have an abortion. The doctor told me I had fertile semen syndrome, which meant I could impregnate women who weren’t ovulating and any one else, even if they weren’t fertile themselves. 

His name was Gavin. After dinner that night, we had sex and we just laid together in the bed. 

“Can I tell you a secret?”

“Sure,” I said sleepily.

“I really want to get pregnant.”

Suddenly, I was wide awake and my cock was standing straight up as he rubbed it with his soft hands. I kissed him and kissed him. He sat on my cock, this time completely bareback, and the thought of making him pregnant made me shoot the biggest load into his dripping pussy. 

In the next few months, I loved watching his belly expand out and his nipples grow and become more sensitive. And of course, I loved fucking him.

title: a place for getting lost (and for getting found)

summary: When Alliance Intelligence is hacked and Rebel spies across the galaxy are killed and more threatened to be compromised, Cassian Andor is left adrift of the only life he’s known and cut off from everyone. Now, with his life hanging in the balance of the people that ruined everything, he must prove that he’s loyal. But to who? (Rating: M, Word Count: 22,108)

notes: This is heavily inspired by the season seven Burn Notice episode, “Psychological Warfare,” and if that title tells you anything, it’s that this fic is one hell of a ride. Some warnings that need to be said: psychological torture, drug-induced hallucinations, interrogation, childhood trauma, flashbacks, and probably more. So no, this isn’t the most cheerful of fanfics, but I had an incredible time writing this and delving into Cassian’s character and past more. There is some Rebelcaptain in this, but it’s not the center. I wanted the focus to be right on Cassian, his relationship with the Rebellion, and everything he’s had to sacrifice in this war.

“It doesn’t matter how many times you leave,
it will always hurt to come back
and remember what you once had and who you once were.
Then it will hurt just as much to leave again,
and so it goes over and over again.
Once you’ve started to leave, you will run your whole life.”

― Charlotte Eriksson

They’re going to kill you.

The black bag hanging over his head was ripped off and Cassian’s eyes snapped open. He was kneeling in the middle of a very bright, crisp, white cell, his hands no longer tied and completely uninjured. Two men stepped through a door on the other side and shut it behind them, locking him inside. He was alone in the silence and made no attempts to move or try to escape. There wasn’t a point.

He blinked placidly as he searched the room with his eyes. No handle or keycode panel on the inside. No windows on the walls. Six strategically placed speakers, perhaps so he could be spoken to by his captors. But why so many? There was one camera as well high up in the corner, trained on him, like an ever-watching eye. The room was almost deadly silent, but if he focused, he could feel the gentle movements of the ship that he was on as it cruised through space, so he knew they hadn’t landed on planet or gone to their base.

As far as anyone outside of here was concerned, he’d vanished, a blip off the radar.

Suddenly, piercing warning sirens began scream through the speakers. He pressed the heels of his palms to his ears to block out the sound, but it could only dull them marginally. It wasn’t long before the sirens drilled their way into his head and the light became too bright. All he could do was close his eyes, kneel in place, and hold his ears, as if removing any of his senses might help with the pain, but it was always there. The sirens, the lights, the hard metal against his knees.

Every time he tried to force his mind to drift, the sirens would either pull him back or his eyes would flicker open briefly and he’d snap back into the room. The light washed out everything. The two mixed together until the light was screaming and the sirens were burning. He lost track of time without meaning to and everything began to crumble.

But he didn’t move and he didn’t flinch. His only consolation was that they hadn’t started physical torture. Of course, the fact that he didn’t know if or when it would happen hung over him like a threat. This, he told himself, he could handle. He’d gone through it before; he’d done it to others before. The surest way to break someone was not with the body but through the mind. For men like him, his mind was his greatest weapon and worst liability.

Maybe they would kill him, but they wouldn’t break him. He wouldn’t allow it.

Ribbons... Part 2/?

Growing up in this universe could be a little tricky. Well not for someone that cared not one bit about their ribbon. Jim Kirk would be one of those people. When he was placed in his mothers arms after he was born she let out a sigh seeing the color of his ribbon. It was so close to his fathers and she just knew he would be the same as him. To say Jim was reckless as a child would be an understatement. There was one time he didn’t like the way his step father was treating his older brother Sam and him that he tried to set his socks on fire while he was passed out on the sofa. Good thing his brother walked in or he would still be in jail or worse for attempted murder. That being said when Christopher Pike saw his ribbon while he was helping him recover from a bar brawl go wrong, he knew he was destined for greatness. He knew that color band anywhere. He’d seen it in so many photos of the late George Kirk he could pick it out of a crowd anywhere.

Flashback to the present. “Jim? You ok man?” He barely heard in the background over his ever escalating heartrate. Leonard clapped him on the shoulder again to try to shake him from his stupor. Jim startled and looked over to his friend then back down to Y/N’s wrist. He jumped up knocking his chair over gathering the attention of practically everyone in the mess hall. He mumbled his apologies and that he forgot that he needed to have a meeting with Spock before Alpha shift and from what everyone could describe bolted out of the mess. Leonard just looked at you and shrugged his shoulders and took off after him. You sat there wondering what it was that you had said or done to make the captain react like that. By then you realized that everyone was staring at you and you looked around, picked up your tray and left quickly as well.

Running through the halls Jim knew exactly where he was going. If he could just make it there without running into anyone he was golden. Finally he made it to the observation deck on one of the lower levels. He took quick breaths trying to slow his panic and his heart rate down so he could process what he just saw. Golden… yellow… The same color as his shirt, almost the same color of his hair, he has seen this yellow before. In old photographs of his father and mother, in Pike’s dissertation, and every single day of his life. He looked down to his wrist. Slowly moving his hand to raise the long sleeve of his tunic up he noticed his ribbon for the first time since he had come on the Enterprise. No truly noticed it, inspected it, rubbed it, and even tried to scrub it off.

By this time Leonard had made it to the door of the observation deck he knew the captain would be at when he acted this way. In his mind he seemed like a caged animal needing to escape. And where did Jim Kirk need to escape when everything was closing in? The stars. He knew his friend better than anyone else, that’s why he knew he would be here. He slowly walked over to where Jim was standing at the big window watching the stars pass by absentmindedly. If Jim wanted to talk he would be here for him. Silence. And heavy breathing, that’s all that could be heard in the room. It went on for about 5 minutes when Jim inhaled like he was about to say something. Leonard turned expectantly to help in anyway he could. Jim turned to him and showed him his wrist. “Why?” That was all that was said. Leonard took his wrist in his hand just as he had yours, and turned it over to see his golden yellow band mixing and swirling with your beautiful purple to become 2 halves of one whole. He sighed and let his wrist drop and quietly said, “ No one knows Jim.”

Captain (Y/N) (Y/L/N). The living legend who had pulled stunts that were well known to all rebels, all over the galaxy. Over time, and partially due to your constant proximity to Cassian both during and after missions and assignments, you had become his closest and only true friend, asides from K-2SO, of course. The two of you spent many an hour talking about everything and anything, whether it was about your favourite colours or your pasts, which you knew pained Cassian immensely but he still spoke about. You two had gotten to know each other better than any other pair of rebels, and everybody else had noticed your friendship and admired it.

However, what nobody knew was that you had an immense crush on Captain Cassian Andor, to the point where you had realised it wasn’t simply a crush. It was love, something you had been terrified of for most of your life, seeing as every person you had loved had died or left. But now, it had become a huge part of your life. You couldn’t ignore the way your heart leapt in your throat whenever somebody mentioned Cassian’s name, let alone whenever he was actually in the same room as you or talking to you. You were undeniably and utterly in love.

this prompt! so, it’s a chubby!Tony prompt, with all the good stuff ❤ hope you like it!! (pls don’t pay attention to the title, I just wrote the first thing that came to my mind)


Delicious comfort

Tony was hunched over on the couch, gripping his hair with both hands. He couldn’t believe that. How could he mess up so much? It wasn’t like he took over the company yesterday, and yet he made a rookie mistake. A stupid, idiotic mistake which caused an investor to withdraw his money, causing a– Tony didn’t want to think about how much money slipped through his fingers.

With a sigh, Tony leaned to the back, tilting his head and staring at the ceiling with tired eyes. Yes, it was his fault. He thought that he could handle it all, but sometimes, being a head of the Stark Industries, Iron Man, SHIELD’s consultant, spokesman for the Avengers team, was too much.. Details were slipping past him.

Bellarke AU: Life on the Ice

Clarkes a figure skater, and Bellamy is a hockey captain that both fight over who has the rink on a dailey basis.

“Princess!” Bellamy calls, interrupting Clarkes routine on the ice. Two months ago, she would have most likely stumbled at his booming voice, but ever since Mount Weather High School started remodeling their rink, all the activities that took place there had moved to Ark States Private School, her school.

They said that it would be done in at least 6 months, 4 more months of seeing Bellamy and his pack of hyenas demanding for more rink time, rink time she can’t afford to lose. And apparently, either could they.

(Share the rink they said, it shouldn’t be a problem they said, bullshit is what Clarke says.)

Clarke turned to see a dark brunette with messy curls, and hard brown eyes skating onto the ice, Bellamy Blake of course. She could recognize his disheveled hair and cocky demeanor a mile away. 'Wolverines’ was spread across his dark red jersey, his hockey stick locked in his grip. He had his notorious stride and scowl present, as always. So confident, so arrogant, perfect ideal hockey captain.

The rest of his team stood at the entrance, awaiting how this battle would play out; as usual.

Clarke was sure to keep up her own confidence as she rested her hands on her hips skating towards him as well her blue eyes glaring into him, knowing just what was about to follow.

I am so, so glad that Ford didn’t get a “pride goeth before the fall” narrative 

Like, I know I described him as having pride in my big analysis post thing before, but that was more because he needed to believe he could handle everything on his own or he wouldn’t be able to function

It’s really different from a “look down on everyone around you, I’m the greatest thing in the world” brand of arrogance

Ford never needed his ego to be broken because that is literally the last thing he needs. The more broken he believes he is the more determinedly he will push everyone away and try to do everything on his own, because the man is incapable of giving up

He needed his walls to be broken so he could be not alone finally

And Ford’s story is not about an Icarus who flew too close to the sun, it’s about a man with an unstable sense of self-worth who wanted to do great things and got manipulated and betrayed. He didn’t get in over his head because he thought he was better than everyone else, it was because he was desperate.

And afterwards his motivation isn’t just a Captain Ahab-like obsession, it’s also guilt and a real desire to make things right

Like, I know that everyone knows this by now and this is not news, but according to my experiences so many stories about a scientist who accidentally unleashes hell or whatever is because they “too ambitious” or “obsessed” or "too arrogant” or any other two-dimensional motivation you want

But they made Ford so completely irrefutably human

And this means so much to me. I am so glad. Thank you, GF team.

                Sometimes Bucky longed for a time where things were simpler and sometimes he just longed for a freedom he didn’t always known was attainable. Most of the time it was some mixture of the two, things that made him think his brain was playing tricks on him. In all fairness, his brain usually was, it never quite being his own. No matter how many times he wished it was his own and he couldn’t understand where exactly it all went wrong. Of course, that made him feel more like a child than anything else and well, his childhood wasn’t exactly a place he always wanted to go back to. Even if said childhood had Steve, who arguably made everything better.

                       Growing up that kid in Brooklyn who tried to keep out of trouble and tried to keep Steve out of trouble, especially during the war, made him wonder how things spiraled as much as they did. Steve was god dan Captain America and he ws, well, the Winter Soldier wasn’t exactly a name people thought positively over. The point was that they were both these larger than life versions of themselves and no two kids from Brooklyn could ever really predict that. Not that he predicted cryo was going to be any part of his life either.

             He really hated that stuff. Even when it was better he still hated it. To feel as if he wasn’t even really. Most of the time he felt that way. His name might have been James Barnes but he could have been Jordan Smith and it would all be the same. The only real piece of his life was Steve and as he found himself unfrozen again he was surprisingly the person he wanted to see, but didn’t want to see. It was an odd state of affairs. But when he did see him, there was a smile he couldn’t keep, a sense of the only person who ever really knew him making him feel…better.

shtuff4avacadoes  asked:

Was a movie made recently about Fanu's novel Carmilla? I saw that you tagged a gif set with "Carmilla" and I got VERY excited. It was a landmark of a novel that is so under-appreciated.

Hello friend,

OH MAN, MY TIME HAS COME. *prepares to introduce you to the best thing ever*


Let me tell you, friend, it is SO WONDERFUL. This webseries found here is everything that novel did right and made it even better imo. It’s a modern adaptation of it that just finished it’s first (AND NOT LAST BC SEASON 2) season and takes place at basically the university equivalent of Sunnydale High School in Buffy—Silas University—(supernatural shit happens here). It’s amazing for many reasons…

Because you’ve got Laura Hollis:

aka Tiny Gay Laura played by the AMAZING, gorgeous, adorable Elise Bauman - an utterly dorky, adorable, in-over-her-head, insatiably curious college student who begins making a series of videos documenting her investigation of the disappearance of her roommate. 

Then you’ve got Carmilla Karnstein:

aka Broody Gay Carmilla played by the too-gorgeous-to-actually-be-real Natasha Negovanlis - a 200+ years old vampire who walks in snark and sarcasm and the object of suspicion in Laura’s investigation. She’s got a ton of issues, let’s say, but she’s actually much more vulnerable than she looks and is a complete goner for Laura because look at them

Then there’s Danny Lawrence:

aka Very Tall Gay Danny played by gorgeous af-I-wish-I-knew-her-IRL and adorable Sharon Belle - Laura’s Lit TA who’s insanely awesome and tough and brave and part of the Summer Society which sounds amazing ngl and very very protective, especially of Laura.

Then there’s Lafontaine:

aka Very Gay Laf played by amazing, HILARIOUS Kaitlyn Alexander - Lafontaine/Laf is non-binary and an absolutely amazing character. They’re insanely brave and literally always figuring shit out and they say some of the best lines in the whole show. 

Then there’s Lola Perry: 

aka Only Gay for Laf Perry played by seriously talented, perfect everything Annie Briggs - Perry is the floor don and honestly adorable and forever trying to keep everything under control, which is basically impossible at this school. She’s the mother hen of the group and she’s best friends (and totally in love) with Lafontaine and the two of them are basically married

This show has amazing writing, casting, acting and each episode is anywhere from 2-7 minutes long so you can finish the whole thing in like 2 and a half hours so watch it now  and it’s absolutely hilarious, but also really romantic and suspenseful and you’ll fall in love with it so fast. It’s so important for representation reasons and almost every character is gay and it’s not even questioned or an issue, it just is and not made to be this big dramatic thing and that’s wonderful. 

Also, because it’s a webseries and we’re to believe this world shown us in the webseries is real, the characters have twitter and/or tumblr which actually expands the show in a really cool way. 

Even better than that, the cast and crew and basically everyone involved in this series is super passionate about it and they interact with their fans through tumblr and twitter. They’re big fans of the show they star in/write/direct or whatever and it’s absolutely fantastic. 

I’d be remiss not to mention the Captain here, because Kaitlyn Alexander (kbearluna on tumblr) who plays Laf is the captain of everything and ships Laferry (Perry/Laf) like no one else. They love this show, they brings cast members on their youtube channel for gin-terviews (the greatest things ever fyi…the whole channel is freaking great because Kaitlyn) in which they let people from tumblr ask questions, they interact with fans and have done meet-ups (forever hoping I’m one of those fans one day) and loves this show so much and basically you can’t not love Kaitlyn.

Basically, the show is AMAZING, and there’s so much more beyond just the show itself, so you should watch it immediately.

Briste |  Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3, Chapter 4, Chapter 5, Chapter 6, Chapter 7

Laoghaire sat at the conference table proudly, arms crossed and a smirk planted on her face, her face still glowed red with a clearly defined handprint, but not from my slap. The print was on the wrong cheek. Either someone else took a swing at her, or she’s fabricated the mark to make my assault appear greater than it was. I was the one who was attacked more viciously than she.

I had to shake the feeling of vitriol from my mind. If I wanted to come out of this relatively unscathed, I needed to keep my calm. When I sat down, a hand covered my own. Joe was sitting beside me, ready to risk his own reputation for my own. I couldn’t help the feeling of relief that washed over me.

“Doctor Claire E. Beauchamp,” The portly, rodent-faced man sneered in greeting. “You’ve been called in for a disciplinary hearing due to the violent altercation that happened at approximately 17:00 yesterday evening with a one Nurse Laoghaire G. MacKenzie. Nurse MacKenzie has provided a fully detailed account of the altercation. During said alteration she has documented and show physical proof of you striking her person hard enough to leave marks to last nearly twenty-four hours and that you defamed her reputation by calling her a series of derogatory slurs, most of which were aimed directly at her nationality as Scottish. Do you deny these allegations and proof of the strike?”

I opened my mouth to speak, but was cut off by none other than Laoghaire herself. “Of course she’ll bloody deny the allegations! She’s only out for everything to further herself. How else would a 27 year old become a surgeon? Why would she get to tend to one of the most famous patients in the hospital if not for her sleeping her way through the ranks to get a better assignment?” Laoghaire stared down each of the five board members present. “You know she was also seen entering Captain James A.M. Fraser’s room while he was unconscious. What other reason that to pleasure herself or to assault the man would she have to going in there when she’s not needed?”

The board members eyebrows simultaneously rose in shock. My cheeks flamed. I had gone in there. For the solitude, and because he brought a sense of peace to me. I could talk to my Scot unlike anyone else. I would read to him, or simply talk to him. Even though he couldn’t hear or respond to me, I still felt at ease and safe with him. When I spoke occasionally he would twitch or move, teasing me into believing he was about to wake, or if I lightly touched his skin a small smile would crease lips. I never inappropriately touched the man, nor would I have belittled him by pleasuring myself in his room to his unconscious form!

“Members of the board,” I spoke with clarity and strength over Laoghaire’s next rant. “I do deny the allegations that are being laid upon me, as well as the new information that Nurse MacKenzie has just said. I deny ever calling her anything derogatory especially towards her nationality. I also deny having hit her hard enough that there is still a mark on her face. What I will not deny, is that I did indeed strike Nurse MacKenzie.”

The rodent-faced man smirked, and he began to open his mouth, I held up a hand. “Please let me continue.”

The woman to the rodent-faced man’s side nodded.

Taking a steadying breath, I continued. “I struck Nurse MacKenzie on the other cheek, not the one that is currently glowing a bright red as though she had only just been struck. The reason I did so is unacceptable, and I do understand that, I lost my temper. Nurse MacKenzie had taken it upon herself to say multiple vicious and derogatory racial slurs against Doctor Joseph Abernathy, whom I consider a mentor and friend in this establishment. She also spoke against my own character and bullied my own circumstances. The strike was made after no less than ten minutes of constant belittlement.

“Another reason Nurse MacKenzie pushed my temper beyond it’s limits was that she withheld vital information on a patient that I was assigned. The same Captain James. A.M. Fraser, whom for the past month, we have been calling the Scottish Soldier. We had anyone who may recognize him to speak up, we also sent off blood tests and photographs to the military to help us identify this man. Only yesterday did we discover that his name is, in fact, James Fraser. His sister, a Mrs. Jenny Murray, visited and informed us of his true identity.

“Yesterday I confronted Nurse MacKenzie and asked why she did not reveal who the young man was so that we may have contacted his family sooner, and her response was, to quote her directly, ‘I’ve known James Fraser my whole life and I’d know the look of him anywhere. The stupid Yank kept me away from his case, away from my lo– away from him. So I kept something from all of you.’”

I turned to Laoghaire, her face had gone white in either shock or rage.

“You can’t prove anything!” She hissed through her teeth.

Joe cleared his throat, “Actually Nurse MacKenzie, she can. Ladies and gentlemen of the board,” he addressed turning to look at them, then slowly stood. “If you would please follow me to the security room I would like to show you some very enlightening tapes.”

*chanting* swim team au swim team au

Free! Otonokizaka Swim Club

Eli: captain of the swim team and specializes in backstroke, tho she’s basically great at everything else too. she’s really graceful in the water and speedy too, so she’s basically like the ultimate cool swimming senpai bc of how proficient she is. but secretly, Eli’s more passionate about dancing which she does as a side hobby. swimming’s just something she’s naturally A+ at and doesn’t make a big deal out of it. cool swimming senpai indeed.

Nozomi: well ofc it’s gonna be breaststroke what else would it be?? this leads to lots of lewd jokes (all made by Nozomom) which everyone else kinda learns to ignore. Nozomi originally joined the swim club just so she could hang out with a bunch of cute girls in swimsuits lol. she actually wanted to be club manager at first, but that role was already taken and then she found out she’s actually p good at breaststroke (and…. stroking breasts, as Nozomi would put it. sigh.) 

Nico: club manager/coach! she’s the one who yells at everyone and shit. Nico’s small and doesn’t have a lot of muscle, and her stamina is shitty, but she’s extremely knowledgable in swimming and actually has the best forms/technique for all the strokes out of everyone (on par with Eli’s, even). if her endurance were better and she got swole, Nico could probably match up to Eli in races. now that’s a scary thought. but as she is right now she can barely even go four laps. 

Rin: SHE ONLY SWIMS FREE actually she likes to swim every stroke but her strength is in freestyle. she has the fastest times out of everyone and can swim for kms, gurl is cray. Rin would be the best swimmer in the team, even better than Eli, if she refined her form just a bit more. people call her Otonokizaka’s Sailfish because of how fast she is. she likes to goof off during practices a lot so Nico ends up yelling at her and/or diving in to smack Rin around. also races Eli, swimming senpai/kouhai awawa. 

Maki: Eli and Rin were the ones to rope her into the swim club while Maki was being indecisive and huffy about choosing a club to join. she’s really, really awful at breaststroke and freestyle but she’s got a killer butterfly stroke and her backstroke isn’t half bad either. she spends her free time arguing with Nico about forms and techniques or racing Rin and losing. such is life. she’s p intense about gitting gud enough to one day beat Rin but ha ha no one can beat Rin’s freestyle. butterfly, on the other hand…  

Hanayo: this egg actually didn’t know how to swim beyond flailing around and paddling in the water doggystyle but Rin was super insistent about teaching Pana how to swim, and subsequently pulled her into the swim club once Hanayo got the basics down. Hanayo’s best at breaststroke (which leads to Nozo offering to teach her how to stroke breasts properly dameeeee) and probably has the worst times, but she tries!! under Nozomom’s tutelage Hanayo is actually getting really good at breaststroke and steadily increasing her stamina. 

Honoka: the only stroke she can’t really do is butterfly but everything else is a go. after the third years graduate Honoka takes over the role of captain. aside from butterfly, she’s a well-rounded swimmer and has better form than Rin but still isn’t as fast as her. she usually goes for backstroke but then ends up smashing her head against the wall when she gets distracted watching clouds when she swims and doesn’t flip on time hhahaha bye honk. 

Kotori: similar to Nico in that she has nearly impeccable form but she runs out of breath p easily. she prefers backstroke though she’s not nearly as amazing as Eli or Honoka. kind of an average swimmer but there’s not really anything she’s bad at, and has the second best butterfly stroke in the team behind Maki. everyone thinks that Kotori should focus on butterfly instead of backstroke but that’s just what she prefers for some reason.

Umi: QUEEN OF THE SEA!! she’s up there with Eli and Rin as best swimmers in the team. she likes to train by swimming in the ocean’s choppy waters between islands (hence why other schoolmates started calling her Queen of the Sea much to her embarrassment) and has the best diving form. she prefers freestyle, like Rin, though Umi focuses on technique rather than speed. even Nico can’t find many faults with Umi’s swimming, amazing.
