Summary: You complain to Tom about how people don’t really go dancing anymore and how planetariums are your favorite place in the world. Tom decides to plan a perfect date for your anniversary.
A/N: I saw La La Land last night and it was incredible and while I was watching it I got really angry about how people don’t go like dancing anymore the way the used to its always grinding and twerking now and I hate it and it also reminded me about how much I love planetariums and that’s how this was born okay bye
“No, you don’t get it, Tom! I know people go dancing still but it’s like ‘oh you’re hot so I’m gonna rub my ass on your crotch and then we’ll go and fuck.’ And its stupid. Completely stupid and I hate it! Why can’t people still go dancing like the did in the '40s or something.”
“Because it’s 2017, that’s why.”
“Fine. Then we’ll build a space ship and fly far away.”
“And how do you plan on doing that?”
“I don’t know. Maybe I’ll just go to the planetarium and pretend that one of those tiny stars is a planet where there’s a girl just like me going dancing with her famous boyfriend who plays Bee-Man and is having the time of her life!”
“Well I was gonna say Ant-Man but he actually exists so I had to think fast!”
Tom chuckled and pulled me into his chest. One of his hands ran through my hair while the other was being held by my two smaller ones.
“Can you believe it’s almost Valentine’s Day?”
“Yeah… that’d make it, what? 3 years? Cause you’re a cheeseball and made me wait 3 months before you made it official on Valentine’s Day?”
“Hey! I was trying to be romantic!”
“If we had started seeing each other in late January, then yes, it would have been reasonable to wait till Valentine’s Day but we started dating in November, honey. You were lucky you’re cute or else I would’ve been long gone.”
Tom laughed and kissed the top of my head.
“At one point I thought about asking you at 11:59 on February 13th as a joke but then Harrison informed that that would result in me with an ice cream in my face.”
“Yeah, you got that right.”
Tom and I turned our attention back to the TV that was playing Endless Love. We both disliked this movie but it was the one he had taken me to see when he asked me to be his girlfriend so we made an exception to watch it only when it was on TV… until Harrison thought that we actually liked it and bought it for us. Now we watch it on February 4th. Exactly 10 days before our anniversary because 10 is Tom’s lucky number.
I snuggled into his chest and closed me eyes, drifting off into a peaceful sleep.
“So do you know what you’re gonna do for her on Valentine’s Day?” Zendaya asked over brunch with her, Jacob, Harrison and Laura.
“Yeah, I think I do…”
“Okay, she kinda spilled a lot to me while we were cuddling the other night and I kinda wanna do it all for her but I don’t exactly know how…”
“Well, what did she say?”
“That she misses dancing… like, not clubbing, but actual dancing the way the did in the '40s and '50s. And she also said that she loves planetariums because she likes to look at the stars and imagine what’s going on over there.”
“So, take her to the planetarium and then take her dancing!” Harrison suggested.
“No, this needs to be more magical. I mean it is their 3 year anniversary.” Laura said.
“Yeah… OH! I’ve got it! So, I’m really good friends with the owner of the planetarium in LA! He’s an old family friend! I’ll call him up! He’s usually closed on Valentine’s Day to spend time with his wife and so maybe I can get him to let you and Y/N use it for the night! You can take her dancing IN the stars!” Zendaya yelled.
“Oh my god, that’s perfect! Please call him!”
“Doing it right now!”
I was humming while dancing around in the kitchen of Tom and I’s apartment. I jumped when I felt a pair of arms slide around my waist and lift me up.
“Good morning, beautiful.” Tom whispered in my ear.
“Good morning to you, too, sleepy head.”
Tom smiled before he leaned down and kissed me.
“Go pack a bag for 1 day and 2 nights. We leave in a few hours.”
“What? What do you mean? Our anniversary is tomorrow we can’t be leaving town! What about our reservations!?”
“Yes we can. I already cancelled them. This is your present. Now run along and get packed.”
“Where are we going?”
“It’s a surprise. Pack stuff to sleep in, clothes for warm weather and a nice dress.”
“LA, Tom?! You’ve taken me to LA!?”
“Yes… is that okay?”
“More than okay! The cold weather was driving me insane! Now come on, we have to get to our hotel!”
Tom had called an Uber to pick us up from the airport and it drove us to a beautiful hotel.
“Oh, Tom! This is amazing!”
“Thank you, beautiful. Now let’s go inside, order room service and then cuddle for the rest of the night. Tomorrow is a big day!”
Tom and I spent the night shoving our faces with pizza and watching Friends on TV. I eventually fell sleep while laying in his lap. I was briefly brought back into consciousness when I felt arms pick me up and place me onto our bed. I felt Tom slide in next to me and press a kiss to my temple.
“I do hope tomorrow goes as planned.” I hear him whisper before he snuggles his face in the crook of my neck and falls asleep.
“Tom, this food is delicious! How did you even get reservations to this place on Valentine’s Day!? And so quickly!?”
“Uh, hello? I’m Spider-Man. Far better and superior to Bee-Man.”
I laughed and felt Tom grab my hand across the table.
“We better hurry up and finish. I still have one surprise left for you.”
I smiled over at Tom as he pointed to his watch that I had given him this morning. He had been wanting it for a while. His parents told me they were getting it for him for Christmas so I didn’t buy it for him but then they accidentally ordered the wrong one. So, I bought him the right one for our anniversary.
Tom paid the bill and grabbed my hand. He drug me out the door and down the street.
“Where are we going!?”
After about 20 minutes of walking, we were met with a cab at the bottom of a giant hill. Tom opened the door for me and I got inside. Tom came in next to me and the cab began to drive. The drive up the hill was beautiful.
When we reached the top, I was met with a beautiful white building.
“Tom, what is this place?”
“You ask too many questions. Just follow me.”
Tom held my hand as he walked up to the door.
“And this is where I blindfold you.”
I was cut off by Tom shushing me and placing a piece of cloth over my eyes and tying it. Tom grabbed my hand and led me inside. He guided me through the building very well but still managed to bump into a few things causing both of us to laugh. Finally, I heard a door open and close.
“You can take it off, now.”
I slid the blindfold off my eyes and gasped at what I saw.
Tom and I were standing in a giant black room, surrounded by stars and tiny planets.
“Welcome to the City of Stars.” Tom whispered in my ear before a soft piano sound started playing. Tom circled around me and held his hand out.
As soon as I took it, he pulled me into his chest and placed my hand on his shoulder before he placed his on my lower back.
Tom began to lead me around the the floor, spinning me, dipping me, and lifting me to the sound of the music.
As we danced, I looked around at all the stars and planets that seemed to be dancing with us. I was so caught up in my thoughts that I hadn’t even noticed that Tom had stopped dancing.
“Which one do you think Bee-Man and his slightly less beautiful version of you live on?”
I smiled at Tom and left his side to walk around the planetarium. I scanned over every star before one in particular stood out.
“That one.” I said, as I pointed to it.
I felt Tom slide his arms around my waist from behind as we looked at the star.
“Well, then that one’s yours.” Tom said as he held a certificate out to me.
“Yup. All we have to do is right down its location, give it a name and sign this document and then it’s yours. So, what do you want to name this shinning star in the Pegasus constellation?”
“The City of Stars.”
Tom smiled and pulled me into a passionate kiss as the piano music came to and end around us.
