Tripping Over the Blue Line (5/45)

It’s a transition. That’s what Emma’s calling it. She’s transitioning from one team to another, from one coast to another and she’s definitely not worried. Nope. She’s fine. Really. She’s promised Mary Margaret ten times already. So she got fired. Whatever. She’s fine, ready to settle into life with the New York Rangers. She’s got a job to do. And she doesn’t care about Killian Jones, captain of the New York Rangers. At all.

He’s done. One more season and he’s a free agent and he’s out. It’s win or nothing for Killian. He’s going to win a Stanley Cup and then he’s going to stop being the face of the franchise and he’s going to go play for some other garbage team where his name won’t be used as puns in New York Post headlines. That’s the plan. And Emma Swan, director of New York Rangers community relations isn’t going to change that. At all.

They are both horrible liars.

Hanging out on Ao3, FF.net and tag’ed up on Tumblr

She’d come up with the idea at some point in the middle of the night – somewhere between flipping onto her back and trying not to break her neck from leaning against the arm of Mary Margaret’s couch and resisting the urge to groan so loudly she’d definitely wake up both Mary Margaret and David because this was, hands down, the the most uncomfortable couch in the entire world.

It felt a bit like lightning.

Or whatever metaphor she wanted to use that didn’t sound quite as ridiculous as saying an idea felt like lightning.

Prompt: ”Okay, when you say love, do you mean love as in like loving pizza or as in love, love?”

You knew Peter was going through a stressful time with keeping the secret from Erik. He was torn and distraught, but he wasn’t ready to tell him the truth. So you decided to get his mind off things and surprise him with a fun filled day while having the entire school to yourself. 

“So tell me again why you wanted to stay behind and not go wit everyone to the museum?” He muttered, following you into the study room. 

You flashed him a smirk, and chuckled. “You’ll see. Just be patient.” 

Peter stopped in his steps, his lips pursed. “One thing I cant ever do is be patient. Remember, I’m quicksilver for a reason.” 

“Shut up Maximoff! Patient you will be, or else I will kick your ass.” You teased. 

Peter let out a soft giggle. He loved how sassy you were with him. Not taking any of his bullshit. You were real, and spoke your mind. Even when he didn’t ask for it. Which somehow made you grow closer. 

“Okay, you can open your eyes.” You exhaled.

 He did, and immediately he was taken back. Everything was different from the last time he saw the room. There was  PACMAN console by the wall, with a few other arcade games as well. You had pizza and drinks and even a boombox playing a few of his favorite tunes. 

His lips curved into a smile, as he looked at you. “What is this?” He asked. 

You walked further into the room, and motioned all around you. “Its for you.” 


“Yea, Professor Xavier let me use this room today. Jean and Hank helped with setting everything up.” You muttered. “Because I had no fucking clue what to do.” 

Peter chuckled, still amazed. 

“I know you’ve been having a hard time with–you know. So I wanted to help take your mind off things.” You stated. “You do like these games right? Because I remember that night we stayed up on the roof to watch the sunset, you told me about few of your favorite games and-”

“This is perfect.” He chuckled. “Seriously, thank you.” 

Seeing that smile light up his face, that was the whole purpose of everything. And you could stay there all day watching him smile. 

His brows scrunched. “Is this Sweet Dreams by Eurythmics?” He asked, his lips curving.

Your mouth shaped into an ‘O’ as you nodded, snapping back to reality. “Y-Yea! Yea, I uh–I actually made you a mixtape.” 

Walking over to the boombox, you took out the tape and tossed it over to Peter. As his eyes read the words that were written on it, he couldn’t help but chuckle. 

“God, I love you.” He blurted. 

You looked up at him, your stomach fluttering. For a moment, you were quiet, and you even thought you were hearing things. “Okay, when you say love, do you mean love as in like loving pizza or as in love, love?” You asked. 

Peter smiled at you, slowing walking over with the tape in his hand. It was weird seeing him walk at a normal pace. He only ever did that a few times. 

Your breath hitched to the back of your throat, as he was now just inches away. He looked deeply into you, creating chills to cover you completely. “I am in love with you.” he whispered. 

And just like that, Peter slipped his hand under your chin and crashed his thin lips against yours. For a moment, your mind went blank. As it felt like something had ignited in you. 

Your hand clasped behind his neck, pulling him in closer. Not wanting this moment to end. 

But needing to catch a breathe, Peter pressed his head against yours, meeting your gaze. “Well, your plan worked.” He muttered. “You definitely took my mind off things.”

I have been watching Jack’s channel for… a while now (Years?? Since 2013 I think?  Don’t quote me on that.  Idk it’s been a long ass time) and I just wanted to post a few of my favorite spooky games that he has played since I’ve been watching because… well… I want to. 

Anyway, these aren’t in any specific order or anything, it’s just a random list for people who might want my opinion (not likely but meh)  

Side note: I’m sorry if anything is spelled incorrectly or the grammar is off, I have like 10 minutes to make this, then it’s back to work.  Please do not be angry I am a sensitive Star.  

1)  Gone Home   Yeah it’s old, I know, but this was one of the very first games that I had ever watched anyone do a play through of and I suppose it holds a special place with me because of that.  I was still new to Youtube at the time and Jack was the first one I found to be playing a horror game so I suppose you could say that this play through was what led me to subscribe in the first place. 

2) Outlast     I had such a love for Outcast and really wanted to play it, but was too chicken, so I just watched Jack play it instead.  Granted, I think EVERYONE AND THEIR GRANDMOTHER was playing it, but I still exclusively watched Jack because watching him play was like watching a friend play.

3)  Outlast 2  I’m not even going to explain.  I mean, with this Outlast, I actually played first and then went back and watched Jack so I could get something like a second opinion (also he explored a few things that I didn’t so new info) also LOOK AT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO OUTLAST PLAYLISTS I’M GROWING OLD. 

4) Neverending Nightmares   Holy shit this game is unsettling and horrifying and I love it so much.  Not for the weak of heart though.  Or weak of stomach.  This was a game that I wasn’t sure I wanted to get until I saw how good it was.  Really though, some disturbing shit in there. 

5) Fran Bow  Again, lots of gore and unsettling imagery and weird things and drug abuse and just all around fun for the whole family. 

6) Until Dawn  Everyone was playing this one too, but I love it all the same.  After watching Jack play it I actually went out and bought it.  I have played it so many times that I’ve memorized the cheesy character lines and I can’t even hear the name “Josh” without crying on the inside at least a little bit.  No idea why I love this game so much, probably the same reason I love cheesy horror films tho. 

7)  Night in the Woods   Isn’t really scary or unsettling or anything but it IS a fan-fucking-tastic game with excellent characters and gorgeous art.  If you haven’t played it yourself (I’ve played it so many times it’s not even funny, I know every little detail I sear) you should watch Jack play it.  Also the more you dig into the game the more everyone is sad.  Just a warning.  

8)  Little Nightmares    Imagine all of your childhood fears.  Like the dark or huge monsters or loud noises but big and scary and I love this game just watch.


1)  Jazzpunk    oh my God I love this fucking game I love the humor I love the style I just fucking love this game and someone else needs to either play it or watch it because omg

2)  Valiant Hearts: The Great War  I love the story, the art, the characters, everything about this game is a hit to me.  The only draw back is that this damn game makes me cry every single time.  Seriously.  At least watch a play through, you’ll thank me when you’re done crying.

pairing: Hyungwon X Reader
request:  Hi there! May I request for a MX scenario (wh or hw or kh) where they see their crush at an arcade playing a bunch of games to win tickets and then buying themselves the largest stuffed animal please? Thanks!!!

Okay so here’s my very first post here, quite excited and a bit nervous as well ! I want to thank again the person who requested me this and I’m apologizing if there’s any typos or errors, English is not my mother tongue so I’m trying my best !
Hope you’ll like it~

It was a saturday night, around 8PM. Hyungwon was laying on the old couch of his apartment’s dark living room. He had been watching TV for about 30 minutes now but he was already sick of it, and during these 30 minutes, it’s not like he really focused on what was going on on the bright screen. The empty bowl of ramen he ate an hour ago was still on the little table that was separating him from the TV.

He sighed. He didn’t do anything all day and it was getting on his nerves at some point.

He quickly got up and grabbed his jacket before going out of his apartment. It was the end of July and at this time of the day, a soft breeze would start cooling down the hot air that subsisted through the whole day. The sky was tinted in orange and pink as the sun was slowly going down over the city.

As he walked, he suddenly got an idea.

It had been a while since he last went there, so he headed to the arcade that was a few streets away from his building. He arrived accompanying the sun’s disappearance. He entered the arcade, it was quite dark, as usual, with the colorful lights of the various games creating moving shadows on the walls and ceiling. Hyungwon enjoyed the place. It was in the dark but it still felt as if it was a place that never sleeps, a little glimpse of constant life in the middle of the city’s nights.

He played a few of his favorite games, also trying some he never tried before. He spent an hour there when he started to feel tired, his eyelids getting heavy. He was making his way out of the arcade when he saw her. He saw her. She was sitting there, in front of a game, her eyes sparkling, the blue and red lights of the screen embracing her figure in the dark.

Hyungwon suddenly felt a sweet warmness spreading through his chest. Everytime he almost forgots how happy she makes him feel just by being around, she appears as she was sent to him by some kind of invisible power, just to remind him.

But she didn’t know. Hyungwon never gathered enough courage to open up his heart to her. Whenever he was able to see her, he automatically felt like crap. Like he wasn’t enough, for her and for anyone, and will never be.

Eventually, he was still uncontrollably attracted to her. It was like gravity between the planets that are pushed away yet attracted by each other.

Yo do people know it’s Rhythm Heaven’s birthday? I sure hope so! Literally one of my favorite video game series of all time, up their with Kirby. If you haven’t played it, please please please pick up Megamix on the 3DS. Everyone should enjoy this series. These are just a few of my favorite rhythm games, but they are all good. Rhythm Heaven is good for so many reasons. Challenge, fun, music, visuals, and overall quality.

final fantasy ix dialogue - 1/∞

Tonight I saw an 11/12 year old girl reading Alex Morgan’s book when I was out having dinner with a friend. Her Mom told her to put it away and participate in the family discussion (there were three older girls at the table with her - her sisters). I couldn’t help it, I leaned over and said, “She’s one of my favorite players too.”

The girl lit up, just positively beaming with excitement, and she said she couldn’t decide between Alex Morgan or Hope Solo being her favorite. I told her they were both amazing players and not to worry about picking a favorite. The Mom seemed happy and surprised that I was talking to her daughter about this. I asked the girl if she would be watching the upcoming matches in February. She said she didn’t know there were any, but that she had been watching the Victory Tour. She asked me if I saw those games and I said “Of course! But oh my gosh the last game made me so mad!” She nodded very seriously and said, “They were trying to do something nice.” I told her I agreed.

The Mom jumped in at that point and asked me when they would be playing again. (My friend was rolling her eyes and dying of boredom at this point, but I kicked her.) I explained to the Mom they would be preparing for the Olympics, Olympic qualifiers, etc and told her when the matches would start again (starting with Ireland, Jan. 23rd and then all through February.) Even how ESPN2 and FS1 are usually the ones that broadcast the matches. I had finished my dinner at this point and we’d paid the check, so I left after that. But as I walked away, I heard the family talking excitedly about watching the next game.

Spread the USWNT love! Spread the USWNT knowledge! If they won’t advertise the games well enough, word of mouth will have to do until then. People want to watch, they want to be fans, they just don’t know how or when. So jump in! That’s one more family that will be tuning into the match on January 23rd! And more in February!

I was grinning ear to ear for a while after that. My friend told me I was a dork. Fair enough. But I hope that girl got a little validation for her love of soccer tonight. :)

My favorite little killer, Arya, really stepped up her game this latest episode of Game of Bones and I feel the need to celebrate it with some art. 

Also sorry I haven’t posted in a week, been busy with a secret project.
