Pairing: Bucky Barnes X Avenger!Reader

Prompt: Tony has made a bet to see who could end up with the most fans, out of the Avengers, by the end of the month. Bucky takes it just to piss Sam off and Reader really wants to prove that she isn’t the least popular. Bucky and Reader team up to be a fake couple in order to beat the other Avengers, agreeing to split the prize at the end. Will it all work out?

A/N: I really don’t know why I picked Clint, but I swear I don’t have him. He’s just very…fitting for the following scenarios. Enjoy that Serious Bucky™ gif.

Warnings: It’s fluffy until it’s suddenly not. Clint gets the short end of the stick.

Clint’s Bad Day

Trouble brewing in Avengers Tower? Our undercover team caught never before seen exclusive shots from the photoshoot the team had just a week back. What the cameras didn’t show was the drama that was happening between superstar couple Bucky Barnes and Y/N L/N behind the scenes! Our photographers first caught Bucky making eyes at another girl on set. Experts and theorists both agree that this could mean signs of an affair.

 Either way, this did not sit well with his girlfriend. Y/N was quick to see that her boyfriend was not paying her the fullest of attention. Jealous much? Not soon after, the two quickly started arguing. As seen in the photos, arguing began not long after the end of Bucky’s shoot. He seems to be going on the defense but quickly takes the offense after Y/N pushed a few wrong buttons. It looks like these two are just a few stops away from Splitsville…

Distance is only a test to see how far love can actually travel. But the distance gets tough when you not only live a whole country away, but your boyfriend is also an idol. Not forgetting to mention, you’ve never met him in person.

The Sims 4: New Game Patch (May 25th, 2017)

Update: 05/25/2017 – PC Version 1.30.103.1010 / Mac Version 1.30.103.1210

Hello Simmers,

Welcome to the base game release for Parenthood! Which is all about those quiet family moments. Taking time to enjoy when things settle down. When all becomes quiet, and you can just take it all in, reflecting upon life…

..er, wait sorry. That’s like 20-30 years after parenthood begins (results may vary).

I meant to say, this is a hectic time. A time of crazy, noise filled chaos, where the concept of quiet exists for only 3 hours between 2 and 5 am. And where tension is worn like a badge of honor! So wear yours with pride, and let’s start with just a little bit of what’s new in this release…

Dear Book Thieves...

This is a copy of a post I made earlier this morning. In it, I included a screen cap of the conversation that sparked off the post, which I have since removed, following an apology by one of the people concerned.

I didn’t remove it because of any of the misguided or abusive comments I’ve received on Tumblr, suggesting that posting screen caps was wrong, or that I had an obligation to blur out names and hide identities. Anyone who is willing to admit online, and in a public forum, to downloading books illegally, is running the risk of people knowing their names.

However, a sincere apology deserves respect.

The text of my post (and the sentiments) remain unchanged.

Dear Book Thieves,

I don’t know you, except from Twitter, where I came across the above conversation this morning. I don’t wish you ill, nor am I trying to encourage anyone to harass or shame you. There are a lot of people out there doing exactly what you are doing, and the fact that you should all be ashamed, and clearly are not, means to me that you haven’t really thought about the consequences of what you’re doing. No-one need be ashamed of ignorance - but ignorance can be remedied.

Let me try to explain. 

It takes a lot of people to bring a book into print. (I’m not talking about self-published books here, which obey slightly different rules, and which are sometimes offered for free, to build an online readership, or legitimate free downloads, which are often used as a marketing tool).

No, I’m talking about people who make their living creating, writing and selling books; people like editors, PRs, reps, copy-editors, booksellers, cover designers and artists.  There people rely on a monthly salary to look after their families, buy food, pay their mortgages. These are the people losing their jobs, right now, all over the world, and why? Because publishers, squeezed on all sides by companies like Amazon, are having to cut costs where they can. 

Of course, authors don’t get salaries. Authors get what is known as an advance on sales. This can sometimes be very large (J.K. Rowling-large) or very small (£5000 or so), depending on how many sales the publishers expect to make.

The advance is subject to tax, of course, like any other income, plus agents’ fees, and it usually has to last the author till the next book. So an advance of £10,000 or so (fairly typical for a first-timer) would have to stretch a pretty long way.

There are also royalties, which means that the author gets a certain percentage (usually between 7% and 12% of the sale price of the book -let’s call it 10%, which is generous).

But, the author only receives royalties when the advance from the publisher has been paid back - which means that, if your advance is £10,000, with a royalty of 10% per book priced at £10 (again, a generous estimate), you would have to have sold at least 10,000 copies (and in light of discounts from supermarkets and Amazon, usually a lot more) your publisher breaks even and you start to get royalties. 

Some authors sell more than that. Other authors never will. And these are the authors who suffer most from online book piracy. Because if an author doesn’t make money for their publisher via royalties, sooner or later the publisher (who is not a charity for authors), will stop publishing those books. The author will be out of a job. 

It’s happening right now; mid-list authors with a decent (if not an enormous) readership are being dropped by their publishers in favour of the big names who will sell millions. In the same way, editors, copy-editors, proof-readers, reps, printers, booksellers, designers and all the other people who contribute to the making of a book are losing their jobs. Last year my publisher made 30 people redundant (I don’t know how many authors they dropped). This year it’s happening again.

Who’s responsible? Well, you are, actually. People who download books illegally from torrent sites without paying for them, and those people who “share” the books, under the mistaken belief that they are doing the world a favour. They’re not. They’re killing the publishing industry. They’re killing mid-list authors by reducing their sales to the point where publishers no longer believe in them. They’re making it impossible for publishers to invest in new writers, niche writers, writers you’ve never heard of - and never will, thanks to people like you.

I know books are expensive. They’re expensive for a reason. It takes a lot of work to make a book (and not just the writer’s work). Some people genuinely can’t afford to buy the books they want to read. 

However, there’s a great way of reading books for free. The library. It’s free, it’s legal, it’s a tremendous community resource, and guess what? Book piracy is killing libraries, too.

Still thinking of downloading that book?

Now’s the time to feel ashamed.

Happy reading.
