from out of the blue

Beginning of the End

Part 3

In the final chapter, Steve suffers a devastating loss.  Steve and Tony make plans to find Rumlow once and for all.

Steve Rogers x Joanna (oc), Tony Stark, T’challa, Secretary of State Ross, The Avengers
Loss, angst, heartbreak, drama, revenge

Steve sat in the waiting room, leaning forward in the chair, staring down at the floor rubbing tears away occasionally.  Tony stood at the window looking outside, his expression heartbroken.  Neither man spoke or acknowledged each other.

T’challa walked up the hallway toward Steve, his guards around him, “Captain, I am very sorry for your loss.”

sedimentarydearwatson  asked:

What do you actually make of Eris' out-of-the-blue pal? Friend from before the Pit?

I’m really undecided on whether to look at him from primarily an in-universe perspective (how /does/ he know Eris?) or an out-of-universe perspective (why introduce a brand new character at the very end of her D1 story?) But either way, I do think his being a friend of hers from before the Pit is plausible enough. She calls him “old friend,” but as we know, years are extremely relative in Destiny terms. She could have identified with someone else who had been permanently hurt by their enemy, or he could have been hurt while she was in the Pit, or etc.

I really love the idea of Altean!Lance especially when paired with BoM-suit-Galra!Keith yes hello sign me the fuck up but I think I prefer him with his normal hair colour rather than white.

Blue and white is my aesthetic! 💕 I love studying history, i could study history 24/7 (*i’m not jk*)


Kaiba thinks his dragons are better than Yami’s dragons. They aren’t allowed to play with each other :( The Blue Eyes fam is really curious though.

In a world where Yami missed the boat to spirit land (more like something went wrong but nvm) and he gets his own body I would imagine he would try to separate his and Yugi’s identities.  I feel that he’d be a bit more conservative than Yugi and also wouldn’t wear a billion belts. more on this when I finish something just for this topic. Main point is for this picture, i couldn’t deside weather he looked better with  or not so here’s both versions


make sure you come back alive, all right?

So, I watched a Nintendo video and I shit you not one of the things they said was basically this:

“We didn’t originally plan on having a blue and red joycon Switch from the beginning. But, while testing out which colors would work ie blue-blue, red-red, etc, some bitch ass tester picked up a random blue joycon and a random red joycon and herp-a-derped it onto the Switch and we all stared in awe as the inspirational lights of Nintendo heaven’s angels looked upon it and said ‘yes. this is good’.”

There was a massive game of capture the flag, in a big city and with 50 people on either side. The red team managed to take our flag so we chased them down and almost got to them, but then they jumped into a helicopter from a rooftop. Me and a few others managed to jump onto it and climb inside as the helicopter climbed higher into the sky. The red guys kicked my other team mates out but I grabbed the flag from them and jumped out; falling to the pavement with the our blue flag. I got up and put our flag back where it belonged just as more of my team mates returned with the red flag. Go blue team.

Literally just as I was starting my shift at work today, I had the greatest idea for an AU ever and I had to suffer through my entire shift with this beautiful AU consuming my mind, so here, have a Victuuri rivals!au:

  • At twenty years old, Victor Nikiforov has been at the top of the figure skating world for four straight years, ever since his senior debut, and he is bored out of his skull. Everything is just so easy and there are no worthy rivals to push him to be better, so he’s just kind of standing, stagnant, at the top.
  • And then, in his fifth season, a dark horse appears from Japan, and his name is Yuri Katsuki. He appears from completely out of the blue, with no amateur or junior division experience under his belt, and he sweeps through the ranks at a terrifying pace, snatching the gold medal right from under Victor’s nose at the Grand Prix finals that year.
  • Victor is left stunned and frustrated, and most importantly, excited. Here is a man to push him to be better, to give him inspiration, to be the rival he’s so desperately yearned for these past four years. Victor can no longer afford to stay stagnant if he wants to keep his position at the top.
  • The two rivals fight neck and neck, always vying back and forth for first place. They’re so evenly matched that many in the industry consider them both tied for first place as the most talented figure skaters in the world, despite which of them has the gold that year.
  • The media just loves playing up their rivalry, especially since Victor and Yuri’s encounters always end with chilly stares and barbed taunts thrown at each other with sickeningly sweet false smiles plastered on both their faces. They seem to absolutely loathe each other.
  • The truth is though, Yuri absolutely worships the ground Victor walks on, because Victor had been his role model and his inspiration when he had first started skating, and he was so excited to be able to compete against him when he finally broke into the senior division. But he was so nervous when he met Victor for the first time that he accidentally came off as aloof and downright asshole-ish, and Victor had replied in kind and then the media blew the situation up, declaring that Yuri hated his rival, and so now Yuri feels compelled to pretend like he hates Victor so whenever they meet he puts up this facade, and he’s pretty sure by now that Victor completely hates him.
  • Victor, on the other hand, is sad that his rival hates him because he actually admires Yuri a lot, because Yuri is the only person Victor has acknowledged as being as talented as him, and he is Victor’s inspiration.
  • Then suddenly, Yuri is 23. He makes it to the Grand Prix finals, as expected. And he’s just so excited to face off against his rival and idol again. But just before he’s supposed to perform his free skate program, he gets a call from home. His beloved dog, Vicchan, has died. The news absolutely destroys him. He makes a few too many mistakes in his free skate program. And his stellar performance in the short program the day before can only take him so far. He ends up finishing in fourth, without a medal for the first time in his career. He’s crushed.
  • That year, Victor doesn’t smile as he is presented his gold medal. Because he is angry and disappointed, and the victory leaves a bitter taste in his mouth, without Yuri at his side accepting silver.
  • The two run into each other as they’re leaving to head back to their respective homes, and they get into a one-sided argument that is actually just Victor yelling at Yuri for messing up, for not taking the competition seriously, and Yuri just standing quietly, taking it all. This only makes Victor angrier. Why can’t Yuri just say something? Why won’t he just defend himself?
  • A few months later, rumours start emerging that Katsuki Yuri has retired, and Victor is having absolutely none of that. He books a plane ticket to Japan, shows up at his rival’s home, and ends up being naked for their first ever conversation outside of a competitive setting.
  • Yuri refuses to return to competitive skating, and Victor refuses to go home until Yuri has agreed to not retire.
  • As a result, Victor stays at Yu-topia for something like a week. During that week, he and Yuri get to know each other, and he realizes that his cute rival actually doesn’t hate him and that he actually idolizes him. And that makes Victor really fucking happy. Because, now that they both know they don’t hate each other, obviously that means they’re automatic best friends, right? Yuri is a little hesitant, but eventually he gives in and lets Victor befriend him.
  • Victor also finds out that the reason Yuri did so badly on his free skate program is because he found out that his dog had died, and Victor understands. Because he knows how absolutely heartbreaking it is to lose a dog. And he knows he’d probably have reacted similarly if he’d suddenly found out something had happened to Maccachin.
  • After a long heart-to-heart, and a surprise appearance from a very angry little Yurio, Victor is finally able to convince Yuri not to retire from ice skating.
  • But now, that begs the question. How the hell is Yuri going to find a coach on such short notice? He’d already cut off ties with Celestino, and while he’s sure the man would understand, Yuri is still too ashamed to face him.
  • Victor has the Best Idea Ever™.
  • Yuri is convinced it’s actually a terrible idea. But with Victor assuring him that everything’s going to be okay Yuri-kun, just trust me, he decides to take the leap.
  • And basically, that’s the story of how Yakov gets to his rink one day to find that his top skater, after a week and a half disappearance off the face of the Earth, has dragged home a little Japanese stray.
  • After a few hours of yelling, Yakov agrees to coach Yuri for the upcoming season.

“Yesterday at work this white lady cut an entire line of people.

I told her to get to the back of the line and I would help her when it’s her turn.

She spoke with my manger, he really didn’t give a fuck.

She didn’t like that so she waited until the rush was over and tried to confront me herself 😂

She got emotional and said she was hurt "who do YOU even think you are to be treating me this way?”

Me: are you going to buy something or nah? Ok no then we have nothing to talk about.“

*pulls out tucked necklace from inside shirt*

My poor coworker had to listen to her for an hour rant about how much I hurt her feelings, welp.“

As emotionally distraught and sad I am, I understand the writers’ move? Don’t get me wrong, I love Michael a lot, and I want him to be alive, but man that was some brilliant stuff because of how realistic it was. 
Thanks to a friend, I had realized Michael was probably gonna die, but I didn’t think it’d be this soon. I mean, throughout the episode I was suspicious just because everything was so happy, but I thought (until the test came back negative), that the “sad thing” would be a miscarriage. Obviously I was wrong. I thought there’d be a bigger build up to Michael’s death, but there wasn’t. It just happened, out of the blue, with only subtle hints from the narrator. But even those hints weren’t necessarily hinting to that particular episode. Or at least they didn’t have to me. Michael’s death was brilliantly done for the simple fact of that’s how life is. In the real world we don’t get buildups or immediate foreshadowing (I say immediate to exclude that “Until his dying breath line”) or tropes. Death comes out of the blue while people are on their way to greatness or better things, when they’re just starting to reinvent themselves or make something out of their lives.  

Anyway, if you love Michael, and want someone to talk about how amazing he was without trashing the writers and the show, feel free to come to me. I won’t be doing much other than crying and watching that final scene over and over again. So. There’s that. 

Takes place after Lance’s moment of self deprecation, because his helmet comm system was probably on the whole time. I’m on such a roll. 

Season Two Voltron Spoilers Ahead

“Hey Lance?”

Lance barely looked up from underneath Blue’s foot, where he was busy greasing some of her canons that had gotten dull during their fighting. “What’s up, Pidgeotto?”

Pidge rolled her eyes at the name but didn’t protest it, shifting from foot to foot and glancing off to the side, fingers nervously twisting around each other. “Um…I wanted…I wanted to apologize.”

A “thunk!” rang from underneath Blue as Lance sat straight up without thinking. He cursed in Altean, something the whole group was picking up quickly, and rolled out from under Blue, rubbing his forehead. “What?”
