Inch by Inch

[I got a request! Actually I got two requests in the same day, I couldn’t believe it. I’ll be working on the other one next, and I, ugh, I just hope their good. I picture it in my head and I can see it but I don’t know….But enjoy!]

“ – and after that he just wouldn’t stop laughing. I swear those boys are crazy, they have to get it from Will’s side of the family.”

You laughed, watching the screen of JJ’s phone as she showed a video of Henry making silly faces at Michael; the little toddler waving his chubby arms and squealing in delight with each contortion.  

“It’s so adorable, Henry was made to be a big brother. Thinking about having another one soon? Maybe a little girl this time so Garcia and I have someone to dress up and have tea parties with finally?”

You and Garcia had talked about that while JJ was pregnant with Michael. Both of you fantasizing over the clothes and toys you could buy for a baby girl. But with the bulge of shock coming from JJ’s eyes you knew that possibility was a ways away.

“I think I’m good for right now on the baby front. Maybe you two could just dress up each other. Right Spence?”


Glancing over next to you, Spencer blinked his eyes blearily. “Have you slept at all during this case?”

Child abductions had been happening in a small area of Wisconsin, and with no similarities between victims, Spencer had been the one to piece together that though they had no physical similarities, the children were all on the same medication. Leading them to the unsub which was the doctor that had prescribed them. But during that time you doubted the genius had used his bed even once, now beginning to nod in and out on the jet.

“I slept some. Just really tired now that it’s over.”

“Want a blanket?”

“No, no I’m good, thanks.”

JJ’s eyes crinkled. “Well, you need to be a little careful there, Spence, with the way you’re swaying you’re going to bop into Y/N’s skull.”

“Oh, hush, he’s fine. Go back to sleep, Spencer.”


“Oh, he’s gone.”

You laughed. “I’d say so. Hey, pass me some of those Cheetos.”

“You have three steps to the kitchen, get your own.”

“Don’t be like that, JJ, I always share with you. I’m only asking for a few – oh.”

During your debacle Spencer had decided to face plant onto your shoulder, and like JJ had predicted the thud of his skull had sent a sharp signal of pain up to you.

“How did he not wake up from that?”

“I have no clue. Should we wake him?”

You shook your head. “No harm in letting him lay there. Kind of feels nice if you discount the bruise I’ll have tomorrow.”

With that the two of you carried on your conversation, sneaking a few Cheetos from JJ’s bag while discussing where the next team dinner should be. Until you felt a Spencer moving next to you, in almost slow motion you watched as Spencer begin curling up against you, his body moving in closer to you.


“Want to move him now?”

Honestly, you didn’t. His chest pressed alongside your arm, his breath a millimeter from your ear, you could even feel his lips moving near it though nothing intelligible could be heard. He was warm, and he smelled nice, his hair somehow smelled spicy, woodsy.

Cinnamon. How the hell did he get his hair to smell like cinnamon?

Not unless one of the baristas attacked him with one of their seasonal flavors, it didn’t seem logical. But it fit him. It was nice and though JJ’s eyes stared at you in an incredulous amusement you pretended like nothing was out of the ordinary.

“So, I was thinking we’d spend Christmas Eve with the team and Christmas day with –“

And again, Spencer’s spastic motion cut you off. But this time…

“Oooh, I see Pretty Ricky copping a feel over there.”

Great, now Morgan knew what was going on. You huffed, carefully moving Spencer’s hand away from your chest only to have him flop it back in your lap.

“I think he like’s you, your body is like a magnet to him.”

Damn you and your baritone chuckle, Morgan.

JJ was covering her mouth to hide her smile. “I don’t think he’d be offended if you woke him.”

Before you could answer the hand began to shift and squeeze, tugging you closer to him.

“Hmmm, Y/N.”

With Morgan’s laughter the rest of the everyone’s attention was drawn to you, and you had no idea what to do.

“Tell you what Y/N, if you can last with him on you like that I’ll give you fifty bucks.”

Well, thanks Emily.

You still wouldn’t move him, not even out of liking it now. It was more of a point to make. It didn’t bother you, but them thinking it bothered you, bothered you. By the time you were getting ready to land Spencer had folded himself nearly across your lap, his face pressed into the thin fabric of your shirt, which you could feel a small wetness from what you guessed was him drooling. His arms encircled your waist fully now while one of his legs had tangled with yours. In short, the two of you looked like a mutant pretzel.

“Pretty Boy! Rise and shine! Come greet us and look at the mess you’re in.”

The yelling and the jolt of the jet making contact with the ground was enough to get Spencer to open his eyes. Blinking slowly before becoming large when he realized his position.

“Sleep well, Spence?”

The jeers were enough to get you to roll your eyes, as you patted Spencer’s knee in attempt to tell him it was all right. Everyone filing out before the two of you.

“I guess, you won, Y/N.”

You glared up at Emily as she tossed a fifty in your lap. With the two of you remaining Spencer fidgeted with his hands as he looked to you.

“What did you win?”

“Not waking you up while you did your yoga poses on me.”

“I’m sorry, Y/N. Are you mad at me?”

“Not really. Though you do get that they’re going to find out about us pretty soon now.”

“Probably, is that a bad thing?”

“No, I don’t think so, I just wanted to tell them in a better way than you slobbering on me.”

“I do not –“

Giving him a pointed look his mouth clapped shut. “Fine, I just, I can’t help it, you know? Whenever you’re next to me, my body knows somehow that you’re near and wants to be close to you.”

Giving his cheek a kiss, you wrapped your arms around your boyfriend’s neck. “My body likes your body close, it’s the reason I didn’t throw you off.”

SERVAMP Festival Fanreport (2/5) (Night)

Take note this report contains only the night session. Noon session can be found HERE. And since it will be made into a DVD (that will be released on 28th June), it will be considered spoilers if you are intending to get the DVD so you don’t have to read it if you don’t want to! My report may or may not be a little Kimura Ryohei/Greed pair-centric since I unconsciously focus on them most of the time.

I should also mention that it might not be 100% accurate as it is based off from memory, so sorry if I mess up! I’ll only write what I can remember.
And also because I fail at English and suck at writing a report it probably turned out being messier than I thought it would be…….sorry.

※Also, just a light heads up that the night session contains quite a bit of ┌(┌^o^)┐ホモぉ… tension and fanservice (a lot of hugging too) so if you’re uncomfortable with things like that please read with care..(or skip it wholly if you just can’t stand it)

It’ll get pretty lengthy so I’m placing everything under a cut!! ↓↓

anonymous asked:

Thanks for being awesome about answering requests. Can I get a Mama Baird and son Ezekiel fic where Ezekiel gets really into a case and he massively overworks himself and Eve finds him like 3 days later and he hasn't eaten and he's exhausted and she has to mom him to get him to go to bed? Thanks so much.

This was such a cute idea so thank you! Also, thanks so much for your sweet words <3 constant reassurance that I’m doing at least okay keeps me going, lol ;) 

I really hope you enjoy!

I was trying to practice Tsuru-chan ^_^ I know I’m not good at drawing, my style is not very consistent as you can see, but the reason I made all of these was that I’m having some tough time and drawing helps to keep me distracted from stuff…
I chose Tsurugi as my subject because I found myself reciting the words from the spell a night ago, as a way to comfort myself I guess… thus I started to doodle in my new sketchbook and here’s the result! (why do I start drawing more beginning from 1-2 AM whyyy ???)

He is a precious little treasure and I really haven’t drawn him much and now I got the opportunity :) If you’re wondering who is that guy in the middle, it’s one of Tsuru’s prototype designs :D I was like, why not try him out too, so I also drew him like that. Hmmm…who knows, maybe his hair could have been white/lighter because that design didn’t had his hair colored black, so I left it like that too.
Uhhmm…so yeah, I could go on with criticizing my drawings, but I’ll stop now.
What do you guys think?

@anoasisinawasteland​‘s fic request “if you could do anything about Team Legends - being domestic/arguing on the ship… - going on a vacation and wrecking havoc, being the adorable, nerdy fuck ups. Time Mum and Dad being disappointed but also joining in on the fun. - Gideon’s pov over the team. Like a day in the life of Gideon and how she sees and reacts to the team” (LoT fandom)

i’m so sorry it took so long ! i’ve been swamped with work and stuff and i was hesitating between writing this and a gideon’s pov fic. - the latter will definitely happen at some point, because I absolutely love the idea.

hopefully you’ll like it! 

“This is a bad idea.”

 Jax shared an eye roll with Sara, both groaning loudly. From where he was leaning against Rip’s office doorframe, Ray frowned, miffed, while Nate pouted at his feet, his arms crossed in petulance. Amaya threw them a look before turning to Mick, the latter responding to her cocked eyebrow with a low grumble. Martin, unlike the others, didn’t seem undeterred nor peeved by the Time Master’s constant pessimism.

“Have a bit of faith, Captain,” Martin insisted, his grin hopeful. Rip responded by cocking an eyebrow, his expression unmoved, “We arse all responsible adults, aren’t we?”

“I beg to differ,” Rip muttered, gaze darting from one person to the other.

Under the Mistletoe: A Collection of Avengers Drabbles

Steve: You were caught on Christmas Eve after the team finally succeeded in getting you under the mistletoe together. Or rather, Nat shoved you and Bucky pushed Steve so that you collided and landed right under that damn plant. You were both understandably surprised as you were best friends, though both of you had been harboring a crush for the other for far too long (to everyone’s knowledge but your own). But then you’d given him a kiss on the cheek and smiled in that way you did just for him, and before he knew what he was doing, he pulled you down and brought your lips together. And from the look you shared after pulling away, you knew this was going to be the start of something special.

Bucky: It was hard to count the sprigs of mistletoe hidden around your home. Your husband was determined to make your first Christmas as a married couple special, and evidently that included excuses to make out whenever it was convenient. From above the kitchen sink and in the entryway to above the damn shower and over the chair in your bedroom, there was hardly anywhere you weren’t given reason to share a kiss. You had the last laugh when all the boxes he thought contained his gifts were instead stuffed with mistletoe!

Peter: You’d only been dating for a few months, and while you and Peter were very comfortable around each other, he was terrified you would get caught kissing under the mistletoe by your father. Any time you ended up there together, he kept the kisses short until you had enough. You called Peter from the living room to where you were making a snack. Unbeknownst to Peter, you had hung a bunch of mistletoe right above where you were standing, and so when Peter came over to you, you threw your arms around his neck and gave him a proper kiss… or multiple kisses, turning into a rather passionate make out session. During which your father walked into the room. Needless to say, Peter’s fear had come true, but it was kind of worth it.

T’Challa: He knew it was your favorite holiday, and he had tried his absolute hardest to get enough free time to spend a week or two with you, he really had. But there was a crisis in Wakanda, and how could he help from thousands of miles away? He was the king, for god’s sake. And so you were resigned to spend the holidays without him, hoping instead you could celebrate on your own time when the crisis was resolved. You were enjoying time with your family - chatting, eating, drinking, laughing - when there was a knock at the front door of your parents’ home. You went to get it, not knowing what to expect - everyone who was supposed to be there was in the living room. Opening the door, you let out a squeal of surprise before jumping into the arms of your beloved king. “You’re here!!” “Yes, and I could not be happier, my love.” You stepped inside, dragging him along with you until he tugged you back. Following his gaze upward, you grinned as you saw what he did. “Well you know what that means, your majesty.” “Oh indeed, I do.” He smirked devilishly as he leaned down to kiss you.

Tony: Tony decided to forgo having a holiday party this year, instead opting to spend the holidays alone with you on some beautiful island in the middle of nowhere. Though you had agreed on no gifts this year - you were going to a private island for god’s sake - you both broke the rules and got each other something - you just couldn’t resist! In your defense, though, they were very thoughtful. You had written Tony a stack of “open when” letters, along with a pair of mugs. Each mug had half a heart and one said “don’t go breakin’ my heart” while the other had “i couldn’t if i tried.” Meanwhile, Tony had given you a “passport to love.” But where most people planned out dates with the theme being from different countries around the world, Tony had actually planned long weekends away in those countries

Natasha: The pair of you were snuggled up together on the couch on Christmas morning, having already exchanged gifts with the other Avengers last night. You’d gotten up and made a pot of coffee before joining Nat in the living room to exchange presents with one another. As you were relaxing in the comfort of her arms, Nat pulled you to face her and said - ever so calmly - “Do you wanna get married?” “Are you asking?” She smiled slyly and told you to open the smallest box under the tree. Inside was a gorgeous, simple ring. Grinning widely, you put it on before looking up at the mistletoe you had hung above the couch earlier in the season. “It’s a yes from me,” you murmured as you leaned in to kiss your future wife.

Clint: You were doing couple-y things together, as you normally did, when Clint would be oh-so-clever and pull out a sprig of mistletoe. One time you were cuddling on the couch and he got this downright devious look in his eye. Before you could question him, he was holding a bunch of mistletoe over your heads and grinning. Of course, you weren’t really about to complain. That is until he tried to pull the stunt at the park, and the grocery store, and at the coffee shop. But you still indulged him anyway.

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to all of you lovely people! Stay safe, enjoy yourselves, and be happy. I hope you enjoyed this little collection of drabbles. :) also I know there’s no mistletoe in Tony’s but I think it’s cute enough without it! (also I totally forgot to include it lmao)

Let me know if you’d like to be tagged or untagged!

I Choose Setlist - Oshima Yuko version

Next up is Yuko’s setlist. There are some things in here that are quite interestingly creative from Yuko.

M01. Sakura no Hanabiratachi (AKB48) - Takamina, Mariko, Haachan, Harugon + 14 members who were born in the spring season

M02. Ponytail to Shushu (AKB48) - Acchan, Sae, Sayaka, Yukirin, Yuttan + 13 members who were born in the summer season

M03. Yuuhi wo Miteiru ga? (AKB48) - 18 members who were born in the fall season

M04. Anata to Christmas Eve (Team A 1st Stage) - 18 members who were born in the winter season

(The first four songs are meant to represent each of the 4 seasons. Get it?)

M05. Chance no Junban - Ucchi, solo

M06. Dreamin’ Girls - Mariko, Sayaka, Kojiharu, Yuko, Umechan 

(The members Yuko chose for this song are what she calls the ‘Nenchosa Senbatsu’, or the Elder Selection. She includes that if possible, she’ll also include Hana, Hiichan and Yukarin from SDN48 in this song as well.)

M07. Zannen Shoujo - Sasshi, solo (Because Sasshi is literally a ‘zannen/unfortunate’ girl, as stated by Yuko. Good one there Yuko. XD)

M08. Sasae - Nontii, solo

M09. Shonichi - Acchan, solo

M10. Sakura ki ni Narou

EN01. Ikiru tte subarashii

EN02. Mokugekisha

‘Nenchosa Senbatsu’ for Dreamin’ Girls huh? That’d be fun. Aw but it’s too bad that song is very short though. XDD

I like how she selected members by season for the first 4 songs.

‘Wonder Woman’ is a weird feminist rewrite of Genesis

Where God created Adam but forgot to give him a mate, and when the Serpent convinced him to eat from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, THEN God remembered, oh yeah, this world could use an Eve, so he created her and stuck her in a special Garden all her own with the vague idea that her unfallenness will counterbalance Adam’s fallenness by providing him with some sort of, again vague, moral guidance. Instead of putting them together to facilitate that moral transformation, though, He waits a couple thousand years until, thanks to some wacky but tangential shenanigans from the Serpent (who is now roaming the world giving peeps Bad Ideas), Adam happens to stumble into the Garden of Paradise (which he was never really expelled from in the first place, it kind of came into existence after he fell, but w/e) and meets Eve. Eve then leaves Paradise with Adam, and he has to spend the rest of the movie convincing her that Original Sin exists. Eve doesn’t believe in Original Sin, she thinks the Serpent literally just makes you eat from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, and if she kills him everyone will cut it out with that shit. 

In the end the Serpent tries to convince Eve to team up with him in letting Adam destroy himself so they can bring back a world-wide Garden of Paradise (so I guess there was a big garden and then God made the sub garden for Eve?), and she decides that in spite of Man’s Fallen Nature (which at this point Adam has convinced her of), he’s still worth protecting, so she slays Satan, knowing full well that Adam still has free will and might make shitty decisions from time to time, but hopefully she’ll provide a good example to him in future.

Kirito is that one guy who plays pokemon competitively and writes Smogon reviews. Every time a new pokemon game comes out he is pulling hairs trying to figure out the new meta. “my mewtwo is fucking useless now asuna”, he explains. “kirito it’s 4AM can you please come back to bed”

Agil and Klein are genwunners who cannot believe that there are like, over 1000 Pokémon in 2025. “Kids did you know that back on my day we only had 150 Pokémon?”, they say, rocking on their chair. “and we were grateful for it kids we were grateful

Asuna and Sinon never managed to finish a Pokemon game. Sinon likes the cool final evolution designs but she can never get behind the silly plotlines. All Asuna ever did was catch a Butterfree and name it “Lowfat” on Kirito’s file

Suguha only picks Pokémon she finds cute for her team. She names hers after people she cares about and her Honedge is named “Brother”

Lisbeth names hers stuff like “Dongermeister69″ and “egg”. Her team is a mix of Cutesy Pink Pokemon and Giant Beasts of Destruction. She loves every single one of them and will passionately defend her Tropius, humbly named “ヽ༼ຈل͜ຈ༽ノ” from any of Kirito’s shittalking abouts its stats

Silica is pretty casual about most games EXCEPT Pokémon. She is a goddamn beast when it comes to that. Fully shiny, 6 perfect EVs team, pokedex completed in every game she ever played, over 1000 hours logged in any of the titles. She’ll play pokemon while logged in ALO, she doesn’t give a fuck. she has a Salamance named Pina who she says it’s her baby. Kirito runs a cold sweat every time she brings a DS to one of the gang’s meetings

crazyraid  asked:

What would each member of the ESP use as their main on OverWatch?

  • Elsword: Genji. Chances are you can hear him cheering if he lands his ult.
  • Aisha: Mei, god spare anyone on the enemy team
  • Rena: Depending on what the team needs, Widowmaker or Ana. The salt is strong with this one.
  • Raven: Reaper. Just… Reaper.
  • Eve: D.Va. She insists it’s not because of her cute skins.
  • Chung: Reinhardt. Matches with him and Eve on opposite teams get tense.
  • Ara: Jack of all trades. She’ll play whoever’s needed, and she’s oddly good at it.
  • Elesis: Junkrat. No one is safe.
  • Add: Either Bastion or Sombra, because he’s a little shit.
  • Lu: Roadhog.
  • Ciel: Pharah or Tracer. 
  • Ain: Symmetra or Mercy. He’s having one hell of a time keeping all the kiddos alive.
Alone Together (Christmas)

In honor of Christmas here is a little bit of James Barnes fluff.

James Barnes x Reader

Christmas time in the Avengers Tower was something new for you. You had only joined them a little over a year ago and had only lived in the tower for the past 6 months. Natasha was the one that finally convinced you, saying that she needed another person to pull pranks with when Clint wasn’t there. You also had just got tired of paying the rent. Living in New York was still expensive, even when you were a super hero.

The tree was over 10 feet tall and decorated to perfection. The soft lights wrapped around the tree mixed in beautifully with the variety of colored ornaments. Each of the avengers also had their own specific ornament on the tree to represent them. For Tony, Steve, Thor, Bruce, Clint and even Natasha, it wasn’t  hard to find an ornament they liked from the department store. You and Wanda were nowhere to be found anywhere, so you two took it onto yourselves to make your own. Wanda had painted hers in shade of red and then wrote her name in white in fancy cursive. You filled a clear glass with paint and then let the paint settle around, leaving a mess of colors.

You had left yours drying on the window sill of your room, the paint had taken a little longer to dry then you expected. It was Christmas Eve and the team were all downstairs hanging out, waiting until midnight to tear into all of the presents. As you walked down into the living room you smiled as you saw everyone hanging out. It was always nice to see everyone happy and together since it didn’t happen very often.

“Hey guys, Merry Christmas!” you called. The sound of the music and their own conversations apparently made them ignore you, however unintentional it was.
You added your ornament on the tree and made your way over to get a drink.

You stood there sipping on whatever fancy champagne that Tony had ordered for the party and watching everyone else. They all looked so happy. Each member of the team came over and talked to you for bit throughout the night. James Barnes was the last one to come to you. He gave a very quick Merry Christmas before disappearing again as quickly as he appeared.

James Barnes was still a mystery to you. He had been living at the tower not long before you had arrived. From what you observed, he mostly stuck around Steve, Natasha and sometimes Sam when he would come by. Other than that, you two hardly interacted. You understood he had been through more than anyone should ever be forced into, but you also wanted to be at least somewhat friends with him. You were both pleasant on missions together but that was the extent of the relationship you shared.

Soon enough you were back on your own again, standing against the wall with another glass in hand. You couldn’t help but feel slightly out of place. Sure everyone here was your friend, but they had all known each other much longer than they had known you. You weren’t sad or upset, but you did feel alone, almost like you were there just to watch. You set down your glass and decided to get some air.

You headed up to the top of the tower where the jets usually landed and opened the hanger doors. You let the cold night air hit you, and were grateful it wasn’t snowing at the moment. You could see the entire city from up here and decided to take a seat and the end of the landing spot. You let your feet dangle, feeling no fear since you could teleport. A couple times you hand even jumped from the top only to make yourself reappear back at the top of the tower. The first time Steve had seen this he nearly had a heart attack because he thought you had just jumped to your death.

You heard the doors behind you begin to open again and quickly teleported into one of the letters of the tower above to avoid whoever had come out. You leaned out slightly saw none other than James Barnes making his way outside. You were confused because you thought he would be inside with the rest of the team. If he didn’t want to hang out with them he would usual go to his room.

“(Y/N) I know you’re up there,” he called out, not even looking up from where he had stopped.

You teleported in front of him, now that your hiding place had been found. “Why are you out here?” you asked.

“I could ask you the same thing,” he replied.

“I needed some air,” you replied, the cold weather making your breath fog out in front of you.

“Can I join you?” he asked. You nodded and went back to sit on the edge of the building. It took him a moment but he followed and sat down. He sat further back, not letting his feet dangle over the edge like you. You both sat there, looking out to the city, seeing all the lights twinkle in front of you both.

“It feels like you don’t belong down there with them right?” you asked.

“What?” he responded.

“They all know each other better than they know us. They have more time together. When you’re new it always feels like you don’t belong with the rest of the group. It’s like you are just there watching,” you explained.

“I’ve never had a holiday with them. Christmas is so cheery and everything you said,” he explained, his voice, much softer than you had realized before this moment.

You were quiet for a moment, coming to terms with the fact that maybe you did have someone who understood you. It would be nice to have someone who knew how you felt so nearby.

“We should go back down, they will be wondering about us,” you said and got up. You walked past him, intending to walk back alone but stopped and made your way back to him.

“Come with me,” you said with a smile and took your hand out for him to take. “It’s Christmas, and if we have to be alone, let’s be alone together.”

You saw a small smile form on his lips. “I’d like to be alone with you for this Christmas.”

And with that, you made your way back inside, and what would eventually be the first night of a string of many alone with James Barnes.

This is my YJ Secret Santa gift for @bun-bun-bum! Dah-dah-dah-daaahhhh! I was your secret santa! (You were actually also my secret santa too! Hilarious, right?) I had a huge amount of fun writing this, and I really hope you like it. Anyway, merry Christmas! 

“Jaime, what’s this?”

“An ornament, Bart.”


“Hey Jaime, what’s this?”

“That’s a candy cane.”

Jaime was exhausted by now, having been dealing with Bart for hours and explaining every little detail about Christmas to him.

Now it was Christmas Eve, and the team had just finished decorating the cave living room. They had set up the tree and everything, and Bart was completely ecstatic. Despite the slight irritation, Jaime couldn’t help noticing how cute Bart’s excitement was. It reminded Jaime of when he was a kid and he would be so happy during Christmas time.

In the future Bart came from, nobody really celebrated holidays anymore. He’d heard about the major ones like Christmas, Halloween, and Easter of course, but he’d never actually experienced them for himself. That’s why he was so excited for his first Christmas at the cave, and why he didn’t hesitate to force everyone else to have as much fun as he was having. Even if most of them were resistant to participating in the festivities.

Jaime, however, was one of the small few who went along with Bart’s happiness at experiencing Christmas. If only he’d known earlier that it would lead to him running after Bart all day while Bart freaks out over every wonderful new thing he encounters.
