Summary: Danny was in love with you. You were in love with him. Neither knew the other’s feelings. Not till you were hurt by Danny's best friend in K'un Lun. (The relationship he had with Colleen Wing has been nullified in this imagine. They were simply close, never had romantic feelings for each other. I love her, btw.)
It had been 17 years since the Rand Family had died in the plane crash. 2 years since Danny Rand came back to life. Along with Harold Meachum. 1 and a half year since you met Danny Rand. And 1 year since you fell in love with him.
He had a certain pureness in him which the other Defenders didn’t have. He was younger than them, but he had faced troubles just as much as them. That pureness, that light within him is what attracted you to him in the first place. And you knew for a fact that he wasn’t attracted to you. At all.
What was attractive about you?
You didn’t have any superpowers. You didn’t have any heightened senses. You could not control your chi. Heck, you didn’t even know how to stitch any wound. You just always stood aside, helpless, watching Claire take care of them.
“What’s wrong?” Jessica walked towards you as you let out a huge sigh. You noticed the bottle in her hand that she was attempting to hide.
“Jessica,” you groaned. “You can’t drink that much. I know that you have superhuman strength and you don’t get drunk, but you just can’t drink that much. You are actually drunk!”
Jessica looked ashamed. Surprisingly, she had warmed up to your presence; you were as important as Trish.
“You know what? I’ll stop when you tell Danny boy you like him.”
“Wow. A: that’s stupid. B: you have to stop drinking. And C: that’s ridiculous. I don’t like him. I mean I do like him, but I don’t like like him.”
“Yeah right. You love him.” Jessica smirked triumphantly and waved Matt to come to you guys.
“Murdock. Tell me. Does Y/N like Rand?”
“Oh c'mon Jessica!” You whined.
“What’s happening here?”
Luke sauntered towards you guys along with Claire and Colleen.
“Kill me already.” You whispered.
“Y/N. Do you like Rand?” Jessica smirked.
Everyone present looked at you expectantly. They all knew you liked him. They all noticed the lingering touches, the forehead kisses, the bubbling jealousy.
“Y/N, your heart rate spiked. I know that you aren’t telling the truth.”
You scoffed in response.
“Hey guys. I ordered pizza.”
Danny came into the room holding 10 pizza boxes. He looked at everyone suspiciously.
“What’s going on?”
“I was just telling Y/N that we need to visit the place where Davos has just been to,” Matt answered.
Danny nodded in response, and gave 9 boxes of pizzas to Luke. He sat next to you, one box in his hand.
“All that for me?” You chuckled while rubbing your palms together, licking you lips.
“Yeah. Some of it for me. Obviously.”
You gave a huge smile, before ravenously gobbling the pizza. Danny snorted, a small smile gracing his lips.
You all ate silently; everyone was looking at you and Danny. Neither of you spoke a word, but there was a lot of emotion between the two of you.
After pizza, all of you headed towards the building opposite the Avengers tower. You thought that Davos had balls to come here, right opposite the Avengers, earth’s mightiest heroes, and do something fucked up.
Before you could enter the building, an arrow shot through you. Your eyes widened in shock, but no sound left your lips. You fell down, slowly feeling the pain traveling through your body.
In an instant, the defenders surrounded you. Danny hovered over you, paralysed by fear. Strong arms lifted you up, taking you inside the building.
“Davos,” Claire answered the question that everyone had on their mind.
“Jessica, you need to apply pressure to the wound. Matt, how bad is it?” Claire asked.
“The arrow was laced with poison. It’s running through her veins. It’s spreading rapidly.”
Still in shock, Danny walked towards your body.
“I need you to do your Iron thingy. The Iron healing that you did for Colleen. Davos used the same poison as The Hand.”
“Davos joined The Hand?” You whispered.
“No, last time I heard, he is not part of The Hand, but he is taking help from Gao. Moron should call his cult The Asshole.” Claire muttered.
A weak chuckle escaped your lips. Your eyes tried to look for Danny, but they couldn’t focus on anything concrete.
“Hey Danny?” You whispered, hoping that he would come to you.
A silhouette approached you.
“I don’t think i’ll be alive much longer.”
“Don’t say that!”
“Time to face the facts Danny. I just want to say that I love you. Have been loving you for a year. I just wish that I had more time with you.”
Suddenly, a searing pain shot through your whole body. Something was burning inside you. You screamed, loudly.
Your eyes widened in pain, and suddenly, everything was focused.
“What the fuck?” You looked around.
Danny was next to you, his palm resting on your stomach, glowing.
His eyes slowly made way to your eyes. The minute they connected, he leapt forward, placing a long, lingering kiss on your lips. He held your face as though you were a porcelain doll.
You pulled apart.
“Does that mean you like me too?” You mumbled.
“Oh yes!” He said, while leaning forward for another kiss. From the corner of your eyes, you saw Jessica taking money from Matt.
Summary: You and Danny are enjoying some private time together (Mini sequel to I Love You)
You sat on the couch, watching The Incident that you bought from a kid in Harlem. Eyes glued to the screen, you failed to notice your boyfriend enter with a box of pizza.
“Hey, Y/N,” Danny greeted you, seating himself beside you and giving you a small kiss on the lips.
“Hey, baby. I have a question. Would you be able to punch that robotic worm and make it useless? Will you be able to fight the Hulk? What about Thor?”
Danny chuckled and mumbled a faint, “I have no clue, won’t know unless I try it.”
Your eyes drifted to the box on Danny’s lap. A smile made way onto your face, and you squealed in joy.
“YOU GOT PIZZA!”
Danny chuckled and handed over the box to you. Without wasting a second, you grabbed onto a slice. Before you could take a bite, Danny took it away.
“Dannyyyy,” you whined, trying to take it from him. Unfortunately for you, Danny was wayy taller than you and it was almost impossible to take it back from him. Fortunately, Danny kissed you everytime you tried to grab it.
Deciding to get a little bold, you gave up trying to get the slice back, and instead focused on pecking Danny’s lips. It took him a while, but he soon understood what you were doing. Slowly, he left the slice in the box, and grabbed your waist, and kissing you back. A small smile crept into your face.
Danny's hands started roaming your body, trying to feel you all at once. He left your lips, and started peppering kisses down your neck, making you let out a small sigh.
“Stop me whenever you feel uncomfortable. I’ll stop.”
You nodded, afraid that words will spoil the moment. Danny’s hand drifted under your shirt when suddenly, a voice spoke up.
“I’d tell you to get a room, but you are already in a room. So, I’ll have to tell you to lock the door.”
Immediately, his hands were away and he looked at Jessica, annoyed, as you put your head on his chest, mortified at getting caught.
Jessica went out of the room, smirking.
That’s it, the moment was gone. You looked at Danny in the eye for a second, before you both burst out laughing.
“I’ll remember to lock the door next time,” Danny said, as you say on the couch, eating the pizza.
no offense but mindy and danny eating pizza to a rayland baxter song as the camera fades out is the rudest thing mindy kaling has ever done to me and I just want to ask her why she did it and that she do more of it
Ah, yeah. October, Goth-tober to quote RebelTaxi. An homage to all those cartoon goth girls out there. I’d like to put my Siouxsie in their Banshee. I’d like to put some Autumn in their Emily. (That didn’t make sense).
