despite the awkward

43! Please! <3 <3

43. falling in love with their best friend’s partner au

From the moment Benny walks in with his boyfriend, Dean knows he is screwed. Benny has been bragging about how handsome his new partner is and how he’d hit the jackpot for a while now- but Dean would never believe him. Until he sees him standing right there, Benny’s arm around the broad shoulders covered with a dark blue shirt and leather jacket. Dean almost drops his beer.

The guy’s hair is a deep, dark brown, almost black in this light and his body is a good example of perfect.

Dean never fights over people with Benny, they always had a good feeling about who was into which person and Dean has always been easy with letting it go and giving Benny what he wants. But he already feels the jealousy rising as he stands and watches. When Benny catches his glance, he waves and gestures to come over. Dean puts his empty beer away and approaches Benny and the guy, curling his shaking hands in a fist to calm them down.

“Hey brother,” Benny says and his hand slips from the guy’s shoulders. He pulls Dean into a hug and he hugs back, strong and short. When he pulls away, the other guy holds out his hand.

“I’m Castiel.” He says with a deep voice. Dean takes his hand a bit too fast and a bit too long as he says his name, but the guy doesn’t seem to mind. He shares a quick look with Benny and gestures. “Benny’s boyfriend.”

“Yeah, I’ve heard,” Dean admits and can’t help his eyes from wandering. “He told me a lot about you.”

“He did?” Castiel frowns and tilts his head to Benny, who shrugs and smiles.

“Only good things, Cas. I’ll get you a beer. Dean?”

Dean nods and suddenly he’s alone with Castiel.

“So, Dean,” Castiel says as he stands closer to let a few people pass. “This party is yours?”

“My brother’s, actually,” Dean says as he gets a hint of Castiel’s aftershave- sandalwood and something flowery, sweet but not too thick, a perfect balance, and he feels the blue eyes burn on his skin. “He’s turning eighteen, so he wanted something a little bigger.”

“Congratulations,” Castiel says politely. Dean smiles, dazzled by the way Cas loosely ruffles his hair as he looks for Benny. He appears a few moments later with three beer. They talk for a while, but Dean has a hard time keeping his eyes off Castiel. It gets to the point where he becomes agitated by himself, knowing that what he’s feeling is wrong and he walks away from them at last- too tense to act normal.

He doesn’t know if he should feel upset or thankful when Benny and Cas leave, but Castiel’s eyes stay with him until late that night.

Dean hoped that it would get less painful over time, seeing Benny and Castiel together. But the more they meet up or hang out together, the more it bothers Dean. Whenever he’s around Castiel he feels warmer, more comfortable despite it being awkward as well. It doesn’t help that Castiel shows interest in him as well- at least, they talk a lot, Cas laughs at his jokes, he started hugging him the third time they met and Cas doesn’t seem to be bothered by personal space.

Despite not being able to get enough of it, Dean feels wrong. Cas is Benny’s boyfriend, and though they aren’t a sappy couple, Dean can’t just flirt with Castiel like he wants to.  

So he goes home every night feeling empty and alone as he tries to ignore the image of Benny’s arm around Castiel’s waist and focus on Castiel’s hand on Dean’s shoulder before, but all it makes him feel is treacherous and an ass.

It’s one of those nights that he leaves alone again, feeling torn. Castiel had talked with him all night and Benny had mainly focused on Meg and Charlie. Dean and Cas had sat aside a little as Cas talked about the names of stars and Dean listened, quickly distracted by Castiel’s glistening eyes and the curve of his lips. Castiel had hugged him gently when they left, longer than normal.

“It was good to see you again, Dean.” He’d said, face close to Dean’s. “Until next time.”

Dean had stuttered something back and now he walks his way home, alone and miserable.

It feels like he’s cheating while he isn’t. Castiel isn’t cheating, he’s done nothing with Dean. Dean isn’t betraying Benny, but his feelings are. The problem is that it won’t stop, he knows that much.

Once home, he lets himself fall down on the couch and turns on the TV. His mind keeps drifting. He doesn’t know how long he sits there and stares at the TV with no clue of what’s on. He hugs his knees close to his chest. His bare feet are cold and he rubs them warm, just as the doorbell rings. It’s almost midnight. The only person he can think of to come by at this hour is Sam when there’s something wrong, so he hurries to the door.

Dean has a moment to realize that it’s, in fact, Castiel standing in front of him, then his thoughts are shut off as Cas steps inside and kisses him full on his lips. It’s only for a few moments before Dean pulls away, the butterflies in his stomach pushed away by his confusion.

“What- what the- what about Benny?” He manages to stutter.

Castiel looks at him with those irresistible blue eyes and closes the door with his foot.

“We broke up. I… I couldn’t ignore what was happening between you and me and Benny felt like he was drifting away from me. We didn’t work out.” Cas looks down, embarrassed suddenly. “I should’ve… I’m sorry I kissed you, I just-” He takes a deep breath. “Benny is okay. He wanted me to find what I was looking for and I already knew that you-” He gives Dean a quick look. “You’re very special to me, Dean, and I want you to know that. I’ve never met someone like you, you make me feel things no one else ever made me feel and I couldn’t ignore that any longer.”

Cas is panting softly and Dean doesn’t know what he should say.

Benny is okay, he’s sure Castiel isn’t lying, and Castiel just confessed to him how he feels. The butterflies start fluttering again.

“Are you sure?” Dean whispers softly. “About Benny, about… us?”


Dean looks at Cas in silence as his mind tries to settle all the information. In a sudden movement, he grabs the collar of Castiel’s jacket and pushes him against the wall, kissing him for a second time. Cas leans in, eagerly, and runs his fingers through Dean’s hair with a soft, satisfied hum.

“I felt wrong for wanting this,” Cas mutters against his lips. “But it doesn’t feel wrong at all.”

Dean chuckles against Castiel’s lips, softly nudging him over to the living room.

“Me too,” he admits, trying to slip off Cas’ jacket and kissing him at the same time. “But if you’re sure and Benny is alright…”

“He is,” Castiel pulls away for a moment to focus his eyes on him. “I promise.”

Dean’s mind settles on the promise and he lets Cas’ lips trail kisses down his neck.

“Good,” he whispers.

Later, when they’re both lying comfortably under the sheets of Dean’s bed, legs tangled together and Cas’ steady breathing tickling his neck, Dean smiles and closes his eyes. As he drifts off, he squeezes Cas’ hand wrapped securely around his waist and can feel Castiel’s lips pressing a soft, tired kiss against his shoulder. 

Everything finally feels right.

Descriptions - MERCURY

Aries mercury:
-This individual will most likely voice their thoughts on a topic in a pushy (cardinal), confident (fire) and cold (masculine) manner.
-I would also think that these people would most likely become verbally aggressive (mars) if someone was to make fun of them, or if they got into a fight.
-I don’t know any Aries mercury, but I would think that they would be good if you couldn’t stand up for yourself when someone is attacking you and if they feel that you want to come back at the person.

Taurus mercury:
-The person would most likely express their opinion in a considerate (feminine), factual (earth) and caring (Venus) manner.
-I would also think that these people would be reasonably quiet and subtle with talking. Could be a bit stubborn if angered (fixed).
-I have heard that Taurus mercury makes someone’s voice sound aesthetically pleasing.

Gemini mercury:
-Individuals born under this placement would emphasise their statement in a intellectual (mutuable), cold (air) and factual (mercury) way.
-I would also consider these people to be the most academically smart, but probably the worst at working technology.
-My mother is a Gemini mercury, and she is someone who is extremely smart, but she doesn’t really believe it (could be the fact that her mercury is in her 12th house as well).

Cancer mercury:
-People who have this placement might communicate in a caring (moon), distant (water) and subtle (feminine) manner.
-I would also think of these people to be good potential motivators (cardinal).
-One of my cousins is a Cancer mercury, and when I was with her one day we had a really good conversation despite originally being kinda awkward, and she did also help me with my self esteem and she did tell me that I was right to have left the people I did leave.

Leo mercury:
-This person most likely talks in an egotistical (sun), obvious (fire) and harsh (fixed) manner.
-They may also be the types of people to become very defensive when someone gives you their opinion on you that is not kissing your arse.
-My dad does have this placement and he does get very VERY defensive when he does not get his daily compliments.

Virgo mercury:
-Individuals with this placement have a tendency to voice in a smart (mercury), grounded (earth) and innocent (mutuable) manner.
-would also likely be the types of people to correct every little thing you say that is incorrect.
-I do not know any people with this placement, but I would think of them to be the types of people to have good intentions, but may come across as an inconsiderate person.

Libra mercury:
-People with this placement may be social (venus), smart (air) and controlling (cardinal) when they speak to people.
-These people do also think that they are always the ones that think correctly, but they might also be indecisive (masculine) in which choice they go for.
-I have known several Libra mercuries, and all of them had no spine – they social climb. These people are really underdeveloped, however.

Scorpio mercury:
-Those who have this placement will be complex (Pluto), caring (water) and social (fixed).
-I would think of these people to also be the types of people to be laid back in their arguments (feminine).
-I don’t know any Scorpio mercuries, but I’d probably see them to be reserved in some ways and very social in other ways.

Sagittarius mercury:
-People that have this mercury as a part of their chart are the types of people to be loud (Jupiter), optimistic (fire) and adventurous (mutuable).
-These people could also be the types of people to come across to be too ‘jokey’.
-My brother has this placement, and I do find that he does laugh a lot when it’s inappropriate, but he is also the type of person to be able to talk anyone out of their negative thought. He has this aura of innocence that gets anyone to trust him tbh.

Capricorn mercury:
-Individuals under this placement will talk in a professional (Saturn), leader-esque (cardinal) and realistic (earth) manner.
-These people may also have a LOT of negative thoughts inside of them that they release to be jokes, again from Saturnian energy.
-I have this placement, and I do have to say that I do have a bad habit of getting myself into negative thoughts, but I have been able to hold these back from friends (unless I am feeling that I simply have to tell someone about it).

Aquarius mercury:
-People with this mercury will voice their opinions in a stubborn (fixed),smart (air) and strange (Uranus) manner.
-These people do also have that accent to their voices that isn’t easy to pin point – almost as if they have that kind of accent from Aquarian energy.
-I do know a few Aquarius mercuries, and they do tend to have this sort of robotic voice to them, and I do also see their humour to be different from other peoples humour.

Pisces mercury:
-A person with this placement will speak in a dreamy (Neptune), concerned (water) and spiritual (mutuable) manner.
-These people do also have this aura to them that I can’t really describe in any way other than friendly yet intimidating to an extent.
-I know a few Pisces mercuries, and I do find that they do love speaking to people – even for 5 minutes. They love knowing how someone truly feels about their lives.

Fantastic Beasts Headcanon:

Newt would have made an excellent Slytherin.

There are countless reasons why our favorite Magizoologist is perfect for Hufflepuff house.  However, I think it would have been almost as easy to place him in Slytherin. 

Yes, he is unconditionally kind and gentle, but he will also bend most rules to get what he wants.  He’s ambitious to the extreme- willing to go to new countries and continents, and break countless laws just to set one creature free.  Despite his social awkwardness, he has no problem lying about his case to muggles and wizards alike to keep his beasts safe from harm.  He’s cunning, despite his outward appearance.

When Graves confronts Tina in the Wand Permit Office and asks to see inside Newt’s case for a look at the creature she brought him in for, we see that little side glance from Newt.  It looks like nerves.  But let’s back up a bit.

This is the case that Newton Scamander has spent his entire career on.  Every creature he adores is inside of it.  Does it really seem plausible that he wouldn’t realize it had been switched for another?  No.


Newt knew that Jacob had taken the wrong case when he escaped.  Newt made to follow, but was apprehended by Tina.  When he realized just what he was being taken in for, it made much more sense to follow along quietly, pretend the muggle’s case had been his all along, and track down Jacob later rather than admit to having an entire menagerie of dangerous creatures on his person. 

In fact, Newt displays most of the tributes Salazar Slytherin himself valued most in students- cleverness, resourcefulness, and a large disregard for rules.  I definitely think that Newt belongs in Hufflepuff, but when you look at it from a different angle, it isn’t so hard to see why one of his closest friends from Hogwarts was very likely a Slytherin herself.   

You know, we see a lot of cisswap aus for Disney, but can we have more role reversals pls?

I want to see Jasmine as the sly street rat, enchanting passersby with a bat of her eyelashes and the swing of her hips - before robbing them blind and disappearing over a rooftop before they even know what’s hit them.

Flynn as the sheltered prince bored out of his skull, ready to jump out of his tower if only to sate his restlessness. Then in comes the small and spunky Rapunzel, long, wispy blond hair braided in a thick rope down her back, arms wrapped in lean muscle and a white palace horse following her like a lovesick puppy, despite her being a known criminal.

Big, burly Kristoff, so shy and awkward despite his stature. Kristoff who adores his big sister to the ends of the Earth, who desperately longs for the days of closeness they used to share when they were younger. Kristoff who always thought it was his duty to protect his petite, delicate little big sister, with her soft pale skin like fine white lace, her dainty fingers and gentle smile. Kristoff who blames himself for not being able to protect her when she accidentally freezes her entire country in an eternal winter. Kristoff who is enchanted by Anna and somewhat terrifying reindeer, Sven. Anna who is strong and capable, but still ditzy enough to make Kristoff toss and turn at night with worry for his airheaded new friend.

Tarzan as the cultured, eloquent young man, on a study trip with his eccentric mother to learn more about the gorillas. Tarzan meeting the mysterious, half-feral Jane, draped in animal skins and hair cut short and choppy around her face, lest it get snagged on tree branches or tugged out by ferocious predators as she flies through the forest on her vines.

Phillip as the naive, sheltered young prince raised as a simple village boy, meeting the alluring Aurora and her horse in the woods one day as they hunt for game. Her long golden hair is tied back in a neat knot high on her head to keep it out of the way, her fingers sure and unflinching as she strings up her prey. Aurora facing the dragon to save her prince charming; befriending the poor creature, soothing her ferocious rage borne of pain love - the rage of a mother separated from her hatchlings. Aurora promising the dragon to help find her babies, if only she can first be let through to save her prince charming.

🏘 Texting next door neighbor Jungkook [part 4] 🏘

[part 1] [part 2] [part 3] [part 5] [part 6]

Rolling your eyes while dropping your phone onto the bed, you got up to open the door for the one who was consistently blowing up your phone. Although you already knew it was him at the door, you peered out the side panel window just to see him swaying from side to side as he stood in place. Maybe it was the annoyed look on his face from him being impatient or maybe it was his getup of the gag present bunny ears you had given to him for his birthday last year. Either way, you couldn’t help but let out a hearty laugh as you opened the door for him.

“Took you long enough.” It wasn’t long until he had pulled you into his arms in a tight embrace, sticking to his words from a few minutes ago. “I mean I already figured out you are small, but I didn’t know you were slow too.”

“If you’re looking to have kids in the future I suggest you shut up.” You teased with a light chuckle. “My small stature is the perfect height to hit you where you don’t want to be hit.”

Silence had taken over as you continued to stand in each other’s hold. You weren’t sure about how he felt, most likely the opposite of what you were experiencing, and maybe it was all in your head, but things felt weird for you. Of course you knew it was coming, that was the reasoning for his visit in the first place, and it’s not like you were newly acquainted friends, seeing as the both of you have been neighbours since the early years of your childhood. Perhaps it was the fact that he had propped his chin atop your head, or the way his hands had splayed themselves widely across your back, or if may even be how his cologne was filling your senses, making you realize just how closely he was holding you. But despite the awkward tension you were feeling, you couldn’t help but let out yet another laugh as he let you go. The imagine of him with the bunny ears perched on his head was one you hoped you would never forget in the distant future.

“What’s so funny?” he questioned, furrowing his brows together.

“Don’t worry about it.” You dismissed. “You got your hug. You need anything else?”

“Yes, some cocoa would be great right about now.” He stated as he toed off his shoes and made his way past me towards the kitchen.

“That wasn’t part of the deal.” You protested. “Make it yourself, you know where everything is anyways.”

“As just your so-called neighbour, wouldn’t that be intrusive to you things? ” he placed emphasis on the word neighbour, jutting out his bottom lip to get his dislike for the title across to you.

“You’ve gotta be kidding me. Are you seriously gonna be like this today?” You already knew what he wanted you to say, to hear it from you to confirm his thoughts and so that he could soothe his hurt pride. “We both know you’re my friend. Is it really that important for you to hear it all the time?”

Instead of replying, he simply grinned at you, the bunny ears dropping forward a little bit, before reaching for the kettle and the jar of cocoa. “Do you want some?”

The tortoise and the hare; what a great duo.

But imagine greek!jason and annabeth meeting roman!piper and percy and thinking at first glance that they're in a relationship but nah they're just best bros and imagine how awkward will be jason

all four of them would just assume things about the other two and act accordingly without actually confirming because they are All awkward babies

though i THINK because piper would be a child of venus, she’d still have that ability to sense?? relationships between people? so she doesn’t think jason/annabeth are dating–just thinks they are literally related. and her and percy are defs the kind of friends to have entire conversations w/ nothing but the word ‘bro’ and very expressive eyebrow signals, so, it would really confuse jason/annabeth on that front. 

like jason’s just “you two aren’t a conventional couple, are you” when percy/piper high five each other after a long-ish separation. and they just freeze mid-high five and laugh like “a couple?? US?? why would i date THIS loser omg” 

also: jason being a TEEEENY TINY bit jealous of roman!pipercy tho. imagine. just a tiny little bit jealous bc piper is Cute As Fuck and percy can just casually put an arm around her like it’s no big deal, but jason has yet to say two words to her that don’t involve him completely losing his train of thought every time she sMIRKS at him. annabeth is forever just rolling her eyes at this bc jason is Hopeless

So I was just sitting around and thinkin’ about Shane (as you do) when I thought of something, and turned it into something more. I just have a lot of feelings my dudes, I gotta let them out.

When the farmer needs to be cheered the heck-a-rooney up (bachelors only):

Alex - He will scoop you up in his arms, hold and squeeze you for as long as you need. When you’re feeling a little better, he’ll drag you (and doggo if you’d like) out for some fresh air on a walk to the beach and, if sunny, a refreshing dip in the sea. How can you be sad when the man you love is grinning widely as he playfully splashes you, and howling with laughter as you move drenched hair out of your eyes, pretending to be mad before you do the same to him? You can’t.

Elliott - He will whisper sweet nothings in your ear, reminding you how special you are, how amazing and important you are, and, of course, how beautiful and/or handsome you are. The more he continues, the less serious and more ridiculous the compliments get. He won’t stop until you’re blushing furiously, laughing and begging him to stop.

Harvey - He will be a little unsure the first time he sees you like this, but quickly snaps out of his hesitation to help you. This man will sit you down, and immediately start rubbing your back, relaxing your muscles and relieving tension. He’ll also sneak in some neck, shoulder and back kisses as his hands do the work. He’s there to listen if you need to let it all out, he would never complain, he hates the thought of you bottling everything up inside. 

Sam - He will hold you as you rest in his arms, and softly sing to you. Eventually, when you’re feeling better, he will be sat on the bed, back against the headboard, and you between his legs, with his chin on your shoulder as you play guitar together, his hands over yours, plucking the strings together. If it’s a more low-key sadness, he’d probably show you dumb memes he finds funny, or he’d send you this

Sebastian - “hey wanna see this cat video?” … but if the sadness is beyond cat videos, he will do his best to comfort you, despite feeling a little awkward, unsure of how to handle your emotions, he does his best, listening to everything you need to say. He might even take you out on his motorbike, taking a spontaneous trip to just about anywhere. The sharp and familiar wind flowing through your hair as you two sped down the road is enough to ease your troubles.

Shane - He would either lay in bed with you, your head on his chest whilst he lazily draws circles and traces the small details/marks/scars on your body he loves so much. Or he would carry you to the chicken coop and childishly play around with you, giving the chickens voices and telling stories about them. “This one time, Mr. Cluck-a-thon escaped the pen and robbed a bank, no lie”.

Dating Peter Parker Would Involve:

  • Honestly, it’d take him ages to muster up the courage to ask you out. Even then, he didn’t really ask you out, not in the traditional way, at least.
  • “I, uh—I like,” he coughs, avoiding all eye-contact, “Like, I like—like, you.”
  • In the end, you took pity on him. “I like you, too, Peter,” you confess, struggling to maintain a straight face to show you’re serious, you promise, despite Peter’s awkward (albeit adorable) shuffling.
  • For the first month of your relationship, he’d be super nervous. About everything. 
  • Half the time, it took May’s kind words of encouragement to even give him the confidence he needed to take you on a date.
  • Sometimes, you swore he forgot you both even went out, like it was some sort of dream for him.
  • He eventually relaxed, though, especially after you discovered he was Spiderman.
  • You’d both came up with a plan to figure out what was wrong with him. 
  • May, of course, blamed Tony Stark’s internship, which lead to regular discussions about the billionaire between you two (which quickly got rerouted to Pepper Potts and her brilliance; May has a celebrity crush on her, you’re sure of it).
  • After a brief period of utter panic, you’d become quite fond of Peter’s alter ego. It served as a reminder of his heroic nature. Plus, it made you laugh at Flash’s insistence that Peter didn’t know Spiderman.
  • “You know, technically, he’s right,” you say, smiling as Flash prepares himself for another long-winded rant. “You don’t know Spiderman.”
  • You both do the Spiderman kiss—or try, at least. You’re hellbent on it being as romantic as possible, despite Peter’s lax attitude towards it.
  • When Peter lost his suit, you tried to help him sew a new one. You probably should have told him you can’t sew for shit, but it was more fun to have him coddle over your various pin prick wounds.
  • It’s not that you and Ned don’t respect Peter’s wishes, it’s just that they’re the Avengers, Peter, did you even get an autograph?
  • You and Ned steal his suit all the time. 
  • Tony blames you two for Happy’s deteriorating health and constant state of panic.
  • “Peter? Peter, the suit? Where’s the suit? I swear, if you’ve lost it—look, that’s a really expensive suit, I can’t afford to—wait, is that Ned? Why is Ned hanging from the window?! Do you know how expensive the lawsuit will be—”
  • You direct MJ to Happy, since she likes drawing people in turmoil so much. You don’t think you’ve ever seen her sketchpad fill up so quickly.
  • Study dates. All the time. So you both can ‘study’. Aunt May is still confused when you get detentions for not having done your homework, despite your ‘study sessions’.
  • He’s not big on PDA—like, at all—but he loves handholding. 
  • “I larb you, Peter.”
  • “Did Aunt May tell you—I don’t even know—”
  • “Peter, no! You have to say it back.”
  • He gives a resigned sigh. “I…I larb you, too.”

would you go with me to the capital? the proposal slides forward, almost slipping between lexa’s lips, as she watches clarke.

no, it’s still doesn’t sound as it should. too trite and desperate. lexa wants to say exactly the right thing when she lets clarke know she wants to show her polis. show her the marketplace that teems with life, the throne room where she’s spent so much of her time as a young adult, the magnificence of the stars from the highest levels of the tower. clarke should know the beauty of these things – lexa has a feeling she’s one of the only people who would appreciate them as much as her.

you should come with me to the capital.

that’s better. it lacks the open-ended nature and ambiguity of a question, but is still not a demand. it’s a simple statement of feeling that leaves clarke the freedom to choose.

yet lexa still doesn’t allow the words to tumble from her mouth, remembering the kiss they shared and the way clarke had pulled away. needing time…what if she needed space, as well?

she almost laughs at herself as she imagines telling her generals that, though she barely bats an eye at the prospect of war, the great heda is rendered faint-feeling and dry-throated at the prospect of asking a cute woman to travel with her.

they wouldn’t understand that bearing her heart to clarke griffin is the scariest challenge she will ever face.

I’m sure this has been done before but I’ve been wondering about it for some time.

So the Radch originally/technically refers to an isolationist Dyson sphere and the Radch we know is a buffer zone protecting it from the outside.

Gloves are almost as synonymous with Radchaii culture as tea and bloody conquest, but at one point Sphene scornfully mentions something about wearing gloves being a laughable attempt at maintaining purity when outside the Actual Radch.

We know Radchaii religion of course places a great stress on purity and ritual cleanliness, about what you’ve touched, washing your hands etc. Does this mean that Original Flavour Radchaii don’t wear gloves at all times?


Let me help.

A/n: This was meant to be posted last week but I was on holiday and didn’t have any wifi, and I have only just got home, but I wrote an extra 200 words for this in that time so there’s that!

(Also unrelated but I’m overwhelmed af by all the stuff coming out of the Disney thingy, it’s so late in the UK and I need to sleep so I’m going to post this and then log tf out!)

If you’re not over 18 please don’t read.

Proof read by way of a text-speech device

Pairing: Bucky Barnes/Reader (Female)

Word count: 2174

Warnings: Smut. Swearing. Dirty talk? I’m not really sure if what I wrote counts but just in case… 

I would say use a condom but they did, and also go to the toilet after sex (I learnt that from smut!) but I kinda suggested Y/N did. Nothing graphic! Just can be interpreted that way.

Again I would like to apologise for the last line, it’s overly soppy I know but I’m keeping it anyway!

Summary: Not much plot, basically just Bucky helps Y/N do something about the lack of action in her life, of which he may be the cause…


Here’s your problem. You are out of breath, your heart is racing, and a slight sweat is breaking out all over your skin, but you’ve not started working out yet. No, this is just your bodies usual reaction to being in the same room as Bucky. More specifically, a half naked, very flushed, making-stupidly-attractive-noises-every-time-he-pushes-the-weight-bar-back-up, Bucky.

rogers’ swan (AO3)

G, 1900 words

“Maybe he’s a bit mad, finding more pleasure in speaking to a bird than with people. It’s not as if she speaks back to him. But she doesn’t walk away and that’s better than he can say for most humans he’s known in his life.”

(a.k.a the fic i wrote as follow-up to this post… IT’D BE CUTE RIGHT? anyway this isn’t spec, just wishful thinking on my part to explain Emma’s absence in the S7 curse)

Officer Rogers considers himself a kind enough person. He may not be good at socializing, and he certainly has no idea how to act around women, but it’s not as if there’s much he can do about it. It’s just not who he is; though, oftentimes he has to wonder if his true self is resting somewhere deep inside, waiting for some grand change in circumstances that might awaken him.

It’s a foolish thought. He knows well enough it’s just because he doesn’t try hard enough to be normal, to fit in. At least, that’s what his father would say if he were still around. But he also knows that despite his awkward nature, it’s really no excuse for how often his coworkers seem to talk about him behind his back.

This was the fifth time that he could remember hearing them planning an after-work trip to the pub down the street in the past month.

Don’t invite Rogers. He’ll just bring us all down.”

“Good idea. He’d just make a mess of things, clumsy bastard.”

“The guy doesn’t know the meaning of a good time.”

For whispering, they were all rather loud. He showed no outward signs he’d heard them, taking his outcast status with as much grace as he could. Suffice it to say, he’d never been invited. He’s certain he never will be.

But no matter, he forces himself to think. It’s not as if I’d enjoy their company, anyway.

Instead of lingering on the fantasy of what he’d do if he had been asked to join them ­– come out of his shell; be charming and sociable; make lifelong friends for his cheerful and upbeat attitude (what a joke) – he changes out of his poorly fitted uniform and into his jeans, t-shirt, and hoodie.

Bruce Wayne headcanons:

-is forever socially awkward

-had a lot of “dates” but Selina was always his one true love and he respected that she didn’t want to be in the billionaire spotlight

-didn’t know how to interact with Dick at first because he had never had any friends as a child or siblings

-has a very good memory and is attentive to details

-followed Alfred around everywhere when he was learning to crawl and crawled after him wherever he went

-followed him around as a toddler too

-while Alfred cooked, Bruce would sit up on the counter and watch him when he was very small

-helped Alfred cook standing on a chair until he was tall enough to see over the stove/counter

-loses his virginity to Selina Kyle (naturally)

-truly bonded with Dick after he found Dick crying in the living room late at night after patrolling. Dick had been crying often but was too shy/awkward to come to Bruce or Alfred about it

-didn’t know how to interact with Jason at first because Jason was a lot like him and didn’t like being coddled

-is more like Jason than any of his children (this is why they butt heads)

-is a much better and disciplined fighter than all of his children (including Damian who was trained by the same person, but didn’t have the early training from Alfred)

- was trained to fight by Selina, Alfred, and Ra’s Al Ghul which gives him a much more complex mixture of hand to hand combat

- considers Alfred his father (even though he loved Thomas, but the older he gets the less he remembers about him) but also has a fatherly bond with Jim Gordon and Lucius Fox

- gives Oswald Cobblepot more leeway than other villains because of their history (Cobblepot has no real malice towards Bruce Wayne)

- bonded more easily with Tim than Dick and Jason at the start of their relationship

-tends to baby Tim more than his brothers, even though Tim is more mature

-is very smart and enjoys math, science, and history

-views Barbara Gordon as family because of his history with Jim Gordon

-knows how to cook, clean, sew, and dance thanks to Alfred

-legally adopts Dick and Tim and was in the process of finalizing the adoption of Jason before he was killed by the Joker

-is very supportive of Tim being gay, but wary of Kon because of how much stronger he is than Tim

-is not supportive of Tim quit college his first year

-pretends not to be supportive of Dick being a cop, but is secretly proud

-secretly adds money to Jason’s bank account every now and then

-is horrified (like Hank Hill level horrified) when he finds Stephanie’s underwear or feminine hygiene products in one of the bathrooms

-while getting ready for big public swanky events, Dick and Tim often end up redressing Bruce and fussing over his hair and cologne

-enjoys working out with Dick more than any of the others. It’s their bonding thing

-enjoys doing research with Tim more than any of the others. It’s  their boding thing

-despite being Batman, Bruce is incredibly awkward, sweet, and caring. When he asks someone “how are you” he genuinely wants to know they’re okay

-will forever be Alfred’s baby, no matter how old he gets

-keeps all of the boys’ first Robin uniforms. It is the Batman equivalent of keeping baby teeth

-loves it when all the kids are home and checks on them when they’re asleep in their rooms as if they were still little

-has difficulty bonding with Damian because Dick took over the fatherly role in his absence so Damian is more attached to Dick

-bonds easily with Helena because she is the one and only child he knows from birth

-picks Helena’s middle name “Martha”

-has a fairly decent relationship with Oswald Cobblepot (as Bruce Wayne)

-chooses Tim as his heir to Wayne Enterprise because he knows it would interest him more than Dick or Jason

-has only seriously fought two of his children-Dick and Jason, when they were becoming out of control teenagers

-enjoys having a large family and lots of children because he was a lonely, only child

-does not visit his parents’ grave until Dick is in his care. Before that, he was too scared he wouldn’t be able to handle it

-over the course of their relationship, asks Selina to marry him numerous times

-Selina says yes when Helena is already four

-because Selina hates the spotlight, the marriage is done through the court and only a small reception is held at the manor. Bruce’s sons are his groomsmen and Dick is his best man

-Despite being socially awkward, Bruce is a suave SOB when it comes to women, but he only has eyes for one
