A/N: There are a lot of time jumps, so I apologize for that in advance. Also, I feel uncomfortable writing wedding scenes, especially when the character is a real person, so I am sorry for how terrible the last one is.
“So, Tom, I heard that you have a celebrity crush-” Ellen stopped herself to laugh at the embarrassed Tom. He ran his hand through his hair as his face became red, “Look at you! You’re all red and flustered.” She exclaimed. She placed her elbow on her armrest and leaned into Tom on it. “Would you look to tell the audience?”
“No, no, no. Please no.” Tom begged.
“Okay, well, then Tom from two weeks ago- was it?- can tell them.” She replied, pointing up to the screen and a clip from a different interview with Tom popped up.
“Who is your celebrity crush?” The interviewer asked. Almost immediately, Tom answered.
“Y/N Y/L/N, definitely her. She’s absolutely beautiful and she’s killing it right now with Divergent and Cinderella.” On-screen Tom eagerly replied as present day Tom hid his blushing face behind his hands.
“Aw, Tom, why are you embarrassed? It’s cute.” Ellen teased as the audience laughed and cheered, “Y/N even agrees.”
“What?” Tom asked, looking at her in confusion and slight excitement.
“Y/N was on the show yesterday and she said she thought you were cute.” She explained.
“There’s no way.” He replied in disbelief as a clip started to roll on the screen.
“So congratulations on Pirates. It’s a brilliant movie.” On-screen Ellen told you and you smiled.
“Tom Holland also agrees.” Ellen added and you laughed lightly.
“So I’ve heard.” You nodded.
“Have you now?”
“Well, when you’ve got a massive comic book fan as your best friend, you tend to know when the new Spider-Man actor admits he has a crush on you.”
“If Tom was to be watching this right now, what would you say to him?” Ellen asked. Tom’s focus was on the screen, on what you might say to him; his attention was anywhere but behind him, where you currently stood silently shushing the audience.
“Tom, I find you to be very cute and very talented. Good job on Civil War and good luck with Spider-Man.”
“Isn’t that nice?” Present day Ellen turned to Tom as the clip ended and he reached for his mug.
“Yeah, but, uh, it’s still embarrassing.” He replied, drinking some water.
“Oh well, you’re about to be even more embarrassed then.” She chuckled.
“Boo!” You exclaimed from behind him and he spit out his drink, bolting to his feet.
“Oh my God!” Tom shouted, covering his mouth.
“Hi.” You laughed.
“I told you, Tom. That was hilarious.” Ellen couldn’t help her laughter as a slow-mo replay of Tom’s actions was shown on the screen.
“It’s nice to finally meet you.” You smiled, holding your hand out to Tom.
“Y-yeah, I’m so sorry. My brain is trying to process all of this. Wow, you’re even more beautiful in person.” Tom said, making you laugh. As he shook your hand, he made eye contact with you and it quite literally felt like time had stopped for both of you.
“You’ll thank me one day.” Ellen said, breaking your trance and making both of you laugh.

You were doing press in London for your latest film and finally got a day off, which meant you could stay in your hotel room the whole day in nothing but jeans and a t-shirt with absolutely no need to get dolled up. Around lunchtime, you rang for room service and a few minutes later there was knock on your door.
“Coming!” You said, standing up from your couch and heading over to the door. You opened it and you were greeted with, instead of a hotel employee bearing your lunch, Tom. You yelped and shut the door quickly.
“Y/N, are you okay? It’s just me.” your boyfriend said.
“I know. What are you doing here? I thought you had to be in Atlanta.” you asked, trying to steady your breathing. The last time anyone had seen you like this was years ago and you were not prepared to let Tom see you in jeans with no makeup on.
“Laura had a scheduling conflict, so she had to back out. I got another few weeks off while they search for a replacement.” He explained, “Why aren’t you letting me in?”
“I-I’m not decent.” You stated.
“Yes, you are. Just let me in.” He knocked again and you sighed.You slowly opened the door and let him inside your room.
“If I had known you were coming, I would have looked better.” You spoke as he closed the door behind him.
“You look beautiful.” Tom said in awe, pushing a loose strand of hair behind your ear.
“Yes, really.” He stated, planting a quick kiss on your lips, “How has the press tour been?”
“Busy and today’s my day off. How did you know where to find me?” You asked, sitting on the couch and he sat beside you.
“I have your manager’s number.” Tom replied, “I would have called you, but I wanted it to be a surprise.”
“So Laura is gone? How will you find a replacement?”
“Well…” He trailed off, “I kind of told Marvel I knew a famous actress who’s schedule would be open soon and who would be willing to play my love interest.” Tom smiled at you hopefully, “So what do you say? After you finish up promo here in London, do you want to come back to Atlanta with me and be my Liz?”
“Did you ask my manager about that too?” You asked.
“Maybe.” He shrugged, making you giggle.’
“I’d love to be your Liz.” You smiled, kissing him.
(A couple weeks later)
The day you and Tom would be shooting the scene in which Peter goes to Liz’s house before Homecoming came around and Jon Watts believed the scene would be even more realistic if Tom hadn’t seen you at all that day or in your Homecoming look. Thus, you hadn’t seen Tom since the night before and he had no clue what your Homecoming dress would be like. You nervously stood behind the door, mentally rehearsing your lines, as you waited for Jon to call action.
“And action!” He announced. You opened the door and walked onto the kitchen set.
“Wow, doesn’t she look beautiful, Pete?” Your ‘dad’ asked Tom. Tom turned around to face you and he was speechless.
“Y-yeah, she does.” Tom nodded. Forcing himself to stick with the script, he turned back around to face your ‘father’.
“Good answer, kid.”
“Dad, don’t embarrass me.” You said, smoothing out your pink dress as you walked to stand beside Tom.
“Let’s get this show on the road.” Your ‘dad’ announced.
“Wait, wait, pictures first!” Your ‘mom’ said, pulling out a camera for the two of you.
Jon called cut and Tom turned to you in awe.
“You really do look beautiful.” He said and you blushed.
“Thank you.” You replied, kissing him quickly.
“Y/N! Peter can’t have Liz’s lipgloss on him.” The makeup artist stated, making you laugh as she gave Tom a napkin.
(Two years later)
You were nervous, you’ve never been this nervous. ‘Don’t fall, don’t fall’ you reminded yourself as your clutched the flowers in your hand.
“Y/N, are you ready?” Your best friend and maid of honor asked.
“Let’s do this.” You let out a shaky breath and she smiled at you. You watched as she left the room and you followed her. It was silent, all you could hear was your heart beating and the soft music. You slowly rounded the corner. Your eyes went up the aisle and straight to Tom’s. He smiled brightly at you. Everyone stood and watched as you walked past them.
You came to a halt at the altar, standing in front of Tom. You handed your bouquet off to your maid of honor and your hands fell into Tom’s…
“Mrs. Y/N Holland. I like the sound of that.” Tom whispered in your ear during your first dance.
“I quite like the sound of it too.” You replied with a laugh.
“You look so incredibly beautiful in this dress.”
“You say I look beautiful in anything.”
“Because you are beautiful. I’ve never seen anything quite like you. I love you so much, my wife.”
“And I love you too, my husband.”

What are your favorites parts of all the books? Those parts that you usually re-read? I'm totally in love with the part when Claire gets shot and all the Jamie's POV. Also, I really love when at the end of the third book Claire falls from the ship and breaks her leg and jamie jump after her and hold her for hours. Sorry if you've been asked this before, I've just discovered your blog and I really like your answers and the way you think :)
anon 2 asked: What was your favorite chapter or happening from each book?
Hi anons - thanks for your ask, and for your kind words!
Here are my favorite quotes/scenes/passages/chapters from each Book:
Outlander: When Claire chooses Jamie at Craig Na Dun. Because it’s where their story - where their marriage - truly begins.
Voyager: The reunion at the printshop - and later, the reunion of another kind in the room at the brothel
Drums of Autumn: All of chapter 16, “The First Law of Thermodynamics” - especially the strawberries scene
The Fiery Cross: Jocasta’s wedding - especially the scenes of Jamie admiring/lusting after Claire from afar
A Breath of Snow and Ashes: Just any of the wonderful domestic scenes of day-to-day life on Fraser’s Ridge. I especially like the part where Jamie teaches Jem how to swim, and Jem kisses Jamie’s scars to make them better
An Echo In The Bone: When Jamie and Claire return to Lallybroch, and he shows her his cave
Written In My Own Heart’s Blood: The last few chapters - the return to Fraser’s Ridge, what Jamie actually does on his “hunting trip,” the achingly beautiful words that Jamie and Claire say to each other about the depth of their love (“Sassenach—I am the true home of your heart, and I know that…I have loved others, and I do love many, Sassenach—but you alone hold all my heart, whole in your hands…and you know that”) and the wonderful, wonderful closing paragraphs of the book
My parents have started watching Outlander recently (they're on ep.6 so far), and so far my father's called Blackjack "basura", "garca" and other nice Spanish insults. I didn't think he'd like the show that much, tbh. Could change though in the later episodes considering how... explicit they are. Especially the prison scenes. Did they bother your father?
Haha, yeah, The Wedding will be an interesting one to get their reactions to, I’d wager. I’ve been so excited to see how much my dad has enjoyed both the books and the show (he’s even recommended them to a few people and there’s someone he works with, “she watches it at midnight like you do”).
My dad doesn’t care for gore more than violence (especially bone injuries) so what he had the hardest time with in the last two episodes was Jamie’s hand injury (the initial damage and Claire’s healing of it). I don’t recall too much more of his commentary on them than that but I’m about 95% sure he hasn’t gone back and rewatched them.
But my father had also read the book before he watched the show so he had a head’s up that it was coming. If your parents are going in blind, you might want to consider warning them or giving them hints about the content before they get there. That’s something where I personally feel that any time to prepare mentally is helpful.
so when are you going to do a pjo office au? Hm? HMMMMMM?
you know what though
Percy is such a Jim, all of the staring into the camera, playing pranks, flirting with the cute receptionist - *COUGH* Annabeth - because he is so completely in love with her despite the fact that she has a fiance - minor detail he’ll work it out.
and - you can thank Jane for this - Jason as the Ryan who Micheal is obsessed with because he’s so hot and smart and less of an asshole than ryan actually is. but he has this on-again-off-again thing with Piper who is Kelly but less annoying
i’m picturing Frank as Stanley because DID I STUTTER? but then again, Hazel as prudish angela with the love triangle thing cracks me up
Hawaii was one of Elvis’ favorite places to vacation. We went out there many times during the years. He loved going back and back to the Coco Palms Hotel because he stayed there while he was making Blue Hawaii. Behind the hotel was a row of royal Hawaiian huts. Over the beds were crossed ceremonial spears. Each of the huts had its own indoor bath along with an outdoor bath carved out of lava stone. They were shielded from prying eyes by high bamboo fences. Sometimes they caught girls trying to climb the fence behind Elvis’ hut. Still the huts gave you the feeling of being native. Royal native.
“We’ll take the whole row of ‘em,” Elvis said. “It will take that many to put us all up.” Joe and Joanie took the first hut. Elvis and Priscilla took the second. Lisa Marie and her nurse took the third one. Then came Patsy and Gee Gee. I moved into the last hut in the row. You can see Elvis’ hut in the background of some of the Blue Hawaii scenes, especially the wedding barge scene. The hotel’s restaurant and lounge were on opposite sides of the entrance. Both opened onto a little stream running past the hotel. You could sit inside and pitch bread crumbs and cracker bits to the fish. You had to walk across a little bridge to get to the huts.
Elvis loved all the Hawaiian ceremonies and pageantry at dinner time. To announce dinner, the hotel set signal fires among the trees. They cooked pigs and fruits and vegetables wrapped in palm leaves in outdoor pits heated with hot coals. “All this place needs is the Peabody ducks,” Elvis said. The ducks were known around the world for playing in the fountain of the Hotel Peabody lobby in downtown Memphis.
After we would finish dinner, the Hawaiian band would move back across the foyer and into the hotel lounge to play for dancing. Elvis would get up from the table and walk out in the foyer and sign autographs for people who had been waiting on him out there. Then we would all go over to the lounge for a while.
Elvis enjoyed sitting and listening to the Hawaiian songs the men sang with their high voices and beautiful harmonies. Nobody in our group would be dancing so I would get up and ask Priscilla to dance. Just to break the ice. I’d come back with her and take Patsy out on the floor. Then I’d dance with Joanie.
Finally, the guys would get up the nerve to dance. When a slow number began, Elvis would get up and ask Priscilla to dance with him. Then, pretty soon, he’d say, “Cilla, I guess we better go see how the baby is getting along and put her to bed.”
The other hotel guests sitting around in the lounge would usually hold back to see how Elvis and the guys did on the dance floor. Then they’d come out and join them, even try to start conversations with them. The Memphis Mafia couldn’t scare you with their dancing.
Lisa Marie of course, would be getting along just fine. She had her own royal hut to play around in. She had her own maid. She was treated like an island princess.
But Priscilla would nod when Elvis suggested they take a look. She would get up. “I think you’re right.”
Let’s talk about the contrast between real!Connie and dream!Connie.
Dream!Connie is just that–a fantasy. Other people are never quite real in your fantasies, even–and, honestly, especially–sweet little cute things like imagining a wedding scene. They lack the things that make them them, and while there’s nothing wrong with enjoying a little self-centered fantasy once in a while, it’s important to keep a distinction between those and what’s real.
And…what’s real about Connie is everything Steven loves about her.
She is clever. She is independent. She is imaginative. She is assertive. She is his equal–not his inferior or superior, just different–and because she isn’t some pining waif who orbits him, he loves her all the more. Their relationship is a celebration of everything two people can bring to love; different perspectives, different hopes, different dreams and talents and ideas that all mesh together into one beautiful whole. While imagining Connie in a wedding dress is cute, she’s far more likely to show up to the ceremony in full battle regalia, and that’s one of the things Steven loves about her.
Seeing her take on her insubstantial fantasy double is going to be awesome.
Yes! This is what I love most about Joker x Harleen. This man, this murdering psychopathic loveless (until Harley) man. This is the same man that gets his happiness from guns, destruction, and murder, and it’s the same man who touches her so gently and kisses her so softly. Until he doesn’t. But the thing is, Joker is aggressive with everyone and with Harley but the ONLY person he’s soft with is Harley. And that speaks so so much.
BUT OMG THE WAY HE TOUCHES AND KISSES HER ESPECIALLY IN THE CHEMICAL WEDDING SCENE IS JUST SO JHJXJKNDSDNOIEVVBEIVB
It's very upsetting to see malec fans try and portray Magnus as someone who would purposely out Alec, or force him to do something he doesn't want to do? I think it's incredibly insulting to both characters. Especially since this wedding scene has come up, people are coming up with ridiculous theories that always end with Magnus as the 'bad guy' in the situation. Magnus is there, giving Alec a choice; and it's Alec who will make that choice on his own.. no one is forcing him to do anything?
THANK YOU! I’m so sick of people attacking Magnus.
“I waited too long and you fell in love with Eddie.”
LOOK AT HER FACE!
She’s in love with Barry! But she doesn’t tell him because she knows he needs to go save his mom, and telling him how she truly feels, would probably change his mind. He’d stay for her. Because he’s so in love with her. She can’t do that. She lets him go. Love is selfless. And Iris acted selflessly in this moment. But she’s in love with Barry. You could tell the entire episode. Especially during their scenes and during the wedding when she looks at Eddie with such an uncertainty that you know the only future she can see, is with Barry.
