Surprise

Edward Nygma x reader

Warnings: There shouldn’t be any

Let it be said that usually you didn’t keep any secrets from your partner. It was liberating not having any blurred lines in the relationship. Except for one that you’ve managed to keep for over a month. Though, you knew he was starting to suspect there was something off the past few weeks.

The problem was, you didn’t know how he would handle the situation. Normally he was easygoing and loving, but there would be times when something else took over.

Eddie had been upfront about what was happening inside his head. There was another version of him that took over from time to time and that was the only reason you were afraid to tell your secret. Ed and Eddie were polar opposites. Eddie was awkward, goofy, and wanted to make others happy. Ed on the other hand could care less of what others thought, oozed confidence, and, if you were completely honest, could probably kill a person.

Your stomach lurched at the thought and you spilt the contents of your meager breakfast into the toilet. Groaning, you stood and moved to wash your teeth. You looked absolutely miserable as you made your decision to tell Ed that he was going to be a father.

The two of you never spoke about children, hell now that you thought about it marriage wasn’t a topic either. Fuck, this was going to be a disaster. You ran a hand over your face. It had to be done, no matter the outcome. You could find something else if things with Eddie didn’t workout.

You started to search online for looking for ideas. Just in case things did work out, you wanted to make it a good memory. Nothing on the internet seemed to fit the both of you as a couple. His favorite thing, riddles, would have to be the way to go. Now that you thought of it, he did love coffee too.

That’s it! All you would need to do is find a replica of his mug and a riddle. Perfect! You headed out and straight to the gift shop that you got Eddie’s favorite coffee mug from. The shop owner chatted with you as he put decal inside the mug that read ‘You’re going to be a daddy!’

Henry, you had learned his name was, wished you luck. “Besides anyone that has you should be proud!” He added with his final goodbye.

You hoped that would be true as you made your way to the GCPD. Everyone knew you were with Nygma, so no one bothered to check in with you. “Hey Jim,” you greeted when he entered the break room.

“Hey,” he gave you a tight smile, it was easy to see his newest case wasn’t treating him well, “What brings you around here?”

You showed him the inside of the mug, “Special announcement, besides I told Edward that I’d come to see him.”

Jim chuckled as he saw the inside, “I’m glad, congratulations YN.” Before you spoke Harvey rushed in telling Jim about a lead. “Tell me how it goes. See you around.” Jim rushed after Harvey.

Something about telling Jim got you excited and you just couldn’t wait to tell Ed now. You made coffee just the way he liked and made your way down to forensics. “Hey, love!” You pressed a kiss to Ed’s cheek and passed him his coffee.

Eddie grinned at you, “Thank you,” he took a drink from it before setting it down, “What did the boy snake say to the girl snake?”

You crinkled your brow, unable to find an actual answer. “Come Slytherin to my bed?” You joked, looking at him expectantly for the true answer.

“Sorry, dear. Give me a hug and a hiss, honey,” he opened his arms up for you.

“I swear Eddie,” you shook your head but complied to his request. Kissing him was always nice and it did wonders to make you forget your worries. Suddenly, there was a shift in his kisses, he got rougher and he picked you up and sat you on the table.

You pulled away from his kiss and sure enough it wasn’t the usually sweet eyes looking into yours. “Hello, Ed,” you gave him a kiss on the cheek, starting to feel a bit sullen.

“What’s wrong? My kitten isn’t happy to see me?” He pouted, before rolling his eyes, “Come on, Eddie has been hogging up all of my time.”

“Here, you seem to be overly thirsty,” you handed him the mug, which he downed completely, impatient. “Besides,” you took his mug, before he saw the words, “I’ve got a riddle for the both of you.”

“Both of us can hear.”

That was no good for you, besides you needed Eddie to be in control. “You always need to suck me roll over your tongue to fill me all over in your mouth. Lick me again and again as it taste good to you,” you asked, biting your lip in just the right way to drive Ed mad.

Ed smirked at the dirty riddle, “Ice cream, but I’m sure my kitten has a different answer in mind.”

“I wouldn’t say ‘no’ to your other answer,” you replied coyly, leaning in to press a kiss to the base of his neck.

“What a good little kitty I have.” Ed pulled you closer, moving to press a lustful kiss to your lips.

You pulled away, “Not here..Lee could come in..”

He sighed, visibly annoyed. “Come on.” He took your hand and started leading you out of the lab. You made a quick grab for the mug without him noticing.

When he took you into the main hall at the GCPD you stopped in your tracks. Ed wouldn’t do anything now and anyways Eddie took control in public situations.

“What’s wrong, dear?” Eddie looked at you worried.

“I-I’ve got something to tell you..” You looked at the ground shyly, “I can be created by humans, But they cannot control me. I suck on wood, paper and flesh alike. I can be more of a hindrance than help at times. To my creators, I seem to be everywhere at once. What am I?”

His looked at you, confused at the sudden question. “You’re a child. YN, I thought riddles in awkward moments was my thing.”

“Look at this.” You showed him the mug.

“You’re pregnant!” His eyes lit up and his sudden shout made everyone stare at the both of you.

“Nygma actually knocked up a girl,” you heard one of the officers remark.

“You’re serious?” He asked, looking down at you lovingly.

You smiled at him, “We’re having a baby!”

Eddie started pressing kisses to your stomach before coming up to kiss you. “Tell me sooner, next time.”

“Next time?” You giggled, pressing a kiss to his cheek.

“Of course, I plan to spend my life with you,” his eyes sending warmth through you, “Each day with you makes me happier.”

“I love you, so much,” you said, hugging him and hiding your face against his neck.

The two of you spent the rest of your visit, talking about the future with a child. Eddie, of course, was already planning to read the unborn child his favorite books, Hawking included. The both of you marveled at how brilliant your child would become. After an hour it was time to head home, Eddie would still need to work for another four hours. He didn’t allow you to leave until he got to tell the baby goodbye and made sure you would rest for the day. You didn’t notice the glare that took over once you turned to leave.

Ed was not happy.

(graphic set) of THE BLOODY CHAMBER AND OTHER STORIES written by angela carter

“Then the girl began to melt. Soon there was nothing left of her but a feather a bird might have dropped; a bloodstain, like the trace of a fox’s kill on the snow.” - The Snow Child  

“Nothing about her is human except that she is not a wolf; it is as if the fur she thought she wore had melted into her skin and become part of it, although it does not exist. Like the wild beasts, she lives without a future. She inhabits only the present tense, a fugue of the continuous, a world of sensual immediacy as without hope as it is without despair.” - Wolf-Alice

albvsxscorpy  asked:

Hi! I just wanted to let you know I LOVE YOUR BLOG! Your art is fabulous! You're so talented and you've inspired me to start drawing again :) I would love to see an inktober doodle of Scorpius and Albus who drifted off together during a study (cuddle) session in the common room with books and parchment scattered all around them :) Anyways if this inspires you I would be super happy to see it, if not I'm sure all your inktober art will be great and I can't wait to see all of it :) Thank you!

[ Inktober 2016.10.23 - Scorbus study snoozes ]

@bloodyginny asked: Hi!!! Love your blog to bits and I was just wondering if you can draw Albus making tea for Scorpius while he’s studying late at night? Thank you so much and have a nice day!!!:3

+ I also have an older ask from @damnyoumoffattttt regarding tea and snuggles, so I thought I’d pile all three prompts into one drawing! I really love doing backgrounds and creating nice warm atmospheres so common room doodles are my favorite to draw. Throw in some tea and your best friend by your side, and you’ve got heaven :D

Wonder Woman Imagine [Crash Landing] Part ii

Story: “Wonder Woman x Reader where instead of a man crash landing on Themyscira its a girl who Diana finds to be breathtakingly beautiful. “How do you wield such sword, my expertiece lies with guns”

Part i

A/N: There will be a part three

Even after being healed, Diana kept you in bed for three days. It would be hard to forget her smile, her constant need of knowing about the “man’s world” which you answered happily. You enjoyed the woman’s company.

You asked her about her island, Themycira, she was gladly to help you out of bed to show you her home. Cautiously helping out of bed, even though you told her you were fine, holding, squeezing your hand the entire time she showed you the libraries, where she showed you her favorite books as a child as well the many scribbly notes she left in the books;

the gardens where she continued to hold your hand, swinging as you both walked. At moments you both would look at each at the same time and just smile;

lastly the sparring grounds where many women warriors trained themselves with swords and shields, bows and arrows on the greenest grass you’d ever scene. Watching them spar was as if you had gone back in time in ancient Greece. “Why do your warriors fight with…swords? And arrows?”

“They are strong and accessible.” She chuckles, leaving to run to grab a sword then bringing you to a more isolated area to practice. She handed you the weapon and stood close behind you, guiding you with her hand.

“It’s much heavier than I’m used to.” You state. “More of a heavy pistol and an AK kind of gal.”

“Pis-tal? A-K?”

“My firearms.” She gave you an even more confused look. “The weapons on my plan.”

“Oh! Our scribes studided them. They are very lethal compared to our archers.”

You shrugged playfully, letting Diana continue your lesson on how to wield with the sword.

Over the next few weeks, the women of Themycira treated you with such respect and kindness, asking you just as many questions as Diana did. You consumed fruit that wasn’t common back where you from and you grew fond of Diana. Very fond. It was obvious that she was fond of you due to the constant touching, hand holding, and hugging. Her want of seeing you and asking if you were okay. Not to mention, her sleeping in bed a few nights with you.

“But I have to leave.” You say to her, her usual smile turned into an immediate frown. “I have to get back home.” She impulsivly held your hand again.

“Home? Do you not like Themysica?”

“I love it! It’s just that I have to go back, no doubt people are asking about me. I’ve been gone for weeks now.”

“Someone you love?” She asked.

“Yeah.” you nodded,bluntly answering.

“They are …special to you?”

“Very.” You didn’t question her upset expression.

“Yet, I thought…” She stammered, letting go of your hand. “We … Excuse me, but I thought we were special.” You gave her an confused look.

“We are…? But I have to let my parents know I’m okay.”

“Oh…” She now looked relaxed then chuckled. “I thought –” you cut her off by bringing her close to peck her.

You are special, Diana. But I must go home.” She sighed and smiled at you.

“Then let’s get you home.”

Bloom (5/?)

Here’s another chapter of Bloom! Sorry for the delay in posting. I’ve been busy wrapping up my CSBB. But after this weekend, I will be mostly free! Once again, many thanks to @unfolded73

In this chapter, Regina and Snow throw Emma a shower, and Emma has a heart-to-heart with Zelena.

[Ch.1][Ch.2][Ch.3][Ch. 4]

You can also read on AO3!

Chapter 5: Daughters

Her mother’s farmhouse could only be described as a rainbow explosion. Multi-colored streamers hung from the ceiling, the cupcakes were iced in a variety of bright colors – hot pinks, yellows, oranges, and blue. Snow and Regina had really outdone themselves with the baby shower. Not only were the decorations wonderful, but so was the food – cupcakes, donuts, mini grilled cheese sandwiches – basically everything Emma could want.

Emma only had one rule regarding the shower. Well, two. The first was not to have any weird or gross games, which Regina had thankfully backed her up on. The second rule was to avoid an over-abundance of pink. It wasn’t as if she was opposed to her daughter wearing pink or dresses, she just didn’t want that to be the only option for her.

So far, both of her requirements were being met.

Happy Mothers Day.

The original sized pic is 16 X 20 inches, that I had went and got printed for my mother, it also contained a quote from her favorite children’s book that she use to read to me as a child, as well as a message from me below Cyrus.

But that version is just for her.
So here is a smaller version of just Cyrus and Bast enjoying a lovely mothers day.
Go out and give your mother a hug, or a phone call, whatever. And if you’re British and your mother’s day has already happened, do it anyway.
I’m sure she’d appreciate hearing from you.

BTS rappers as parents - when their child can’t sleep

Namjoon

  • He’s the parent that just patiently indulges every question his kid has. 
  • His kid would probably be the one that lies awake thinking about everything, contemplating how it is that they are able to think from their mind and not someone else’s. 
  • They have a lot of questions, but Namjoon is so patient. He just sits back with their head on his lap and strokes their hair or face while he answers their every whim.
  • Tbh he has to control himself when he answers so he doesn’t nerd out too much bc he’s trying to get them to sleep, not to ask more questions
  • When they finally fall asleep he can’t bring himself to get up just yet
  • Ends up falling asleep with them still in his lap and you have to justify waking him up to yourself so you don’t feel bad about ruining the moment
  • Keeps his phone next to his head at night when he’s away on tour because, without fail, they’ll always call to ask at least one question before they go to sleep at night
  • “How much do you love me dad?”
  • “I love you more than the number of stars in the universe, kiddo. Don’t tell mom though she’ll get jealous”

  • He had just fallen asleep when your toddler comes into your room at 3am and wakes him up
  • A little grumpy at first but he has a soft spot for this kid so he isn’t mad
  • Tries his best to resolve the problem without getting up but this kid doesn’t let up. He ends up carrying them back to their room.
  • A very serious yet calming parent. His kid has so many doubts and worries and he listens to them all and softly explains why they’re illogical
  • Forehead kisses once they’re finally asleep
  • You’re certain at one point your kid just wakes him up because they want to hear his voice and not because they’re actually upset about anything in particular
  • He records a sound file of himself softly reading his favorite book as a child for them to listen to when he’s away on tour
  • Even when he’s away he calls every night to say goodnight before their bedtime bc he’s so attached to this kid. He’s more subtle about it than Hoseok is but you can tell when he misses them.
  • “Kaep jjang, kiddo” to which they enthusiastically reply, “Kaep jjang!” like it’s their own special language

Hoseok

  • The most affectionate father in all of South Korea
  • Reads to them every night before bed but this kid just doesn’t want to sleep so they end up making him stay longer if they’re not tired
  • Traces shapes on their face and strokes their hair to get them to relax while he makes up short stories and talks in his signature Story Voice - the slightly high pitched aegyo voice Hobi loves to use on his fans, he also uses on his own child
  • Sometimes you wonder who is the parent and who is the child bc half the time they end up falling asleep because he wore them out 
  • Tries to speak softly when he’s telling his stories but sometimes he gets really into it and you start to hear giggles coming from their room that are getting louder and louder
  • “Jagi, you were supposed to put them to sleep an hour ago. What on earth are you doing?”
  • The first day of every new tour when they start travelling he always calls every hour bc he can’t handle being away from them
  • They made their own storybook together in an empty journal and you read it to your kid when he’s away
  • “You’re not doing it right! You have to use the same voice daddy uses” So you try to use Hoseok’s Story Voice and then you’re interrupted again
  • “You have to play with my hair like daddy does or else I can’t sleep” -mental note to kick Hoseok in the butt when he gets back for giving this kid such high standards
