This might seem like a joke but that’s what happened. I didn’t go to school on the 16th of January, I sat, unmoving, in front of my computer till 5 am and cried, then texted my irl friends who were also awake and crying and we just stayed home that day
as i missed day 1 (my housemates decided it was time to watch iron fist so i lost my evening) here’s day 1 (firsts) and 2 (growth and change) combined.
jesse as a freshfaced yound gangster kid ready to smarten himself up by joining overwatch, and the tired but hopeful gabriel who has already taken jesse under his wing
cut to two years later on new years and jesse is drunk as a skunk and head over heels for his commander. cue drunken new years kiss that jesse totally forgets (but gabriel remembers in vivid detail)
a year on from that, and while they’re both suffering under the pressure of blackwatch, they’ve been dating steadily for six months and finally go for it (i might actually properly line and colour that last image….)
Notes: I’d just like to give a big shout-out to @cryptidkeiths for editing this for me and another big thanks to @hunksheadbands for keeping me sane while I stressed over writing my first fic. i love you guys.

la douleur exquise- (n.) the heart-wrenching pain of wanting the affection of someone unattainable
“We can still be friends,” Barry says in a defeated tone. You stop walking and turn around to face him, “No we can’t. Everything’s gonna awkward now.”
“(Y/N), it’s just a small crush, this will all blow over, and we’ll forget about it in, like, two days tops.”
“Barry, I’ve liked you for two years! I wouldn’t necessarily call that a ‘small crush’!”
“Just drop it. Forget this all happened.” You stormed off down the street, leaving you frustrated and Barry without a best friend.
After storming out of Barry’s apartment, you ran as fast as your legs could take you. Street signs were passing out of your peripherals and people were striding through the busy Central City night life. With your heart racing, your head pounding, and your chest heaving, you eventually found yourself back at your apartment. You slammed the door closed and threw yourself on the couch.
The pain of heartbreak and rejection was consuming; consuming you like snow does to the lively outdoors in the winter. One phrase stayed in your mind while you laid on the couch in a heap of tears and pain.
la douleur exquise
You were told this phrase by adults in your life. “Oh, you’ll experience it sometime,” they all said. Everyone of them had a different experience, a different story, but, one thing in common was the shared heartbreak.
For you la douleur exquise felt almost impossible to overcome.
For weeks you didn’t show up to STAR Labs because the thought of having to see Barry terrified you into oblivion. Weeks then turned into months and you eventually resigned from your position on Team Flash. You didn’t cut the ties completely; you still kept in contact with Caitlin and Cisco and you would go see them when Barry wasn’t there.
After six lonely months, you finally made your presence in the dating world again. You went on many dates, most of them boring and drawn out, but, some could’ve had a promising future. No matter who you were on a date with, whether it was good or bad, something never felt right. All of the guys were perfect gentlemen, but, they weren’t him. They weren’t Barry and they never would be.
“I am over him. I know I am. He didn’t feel the same way and he never will,” you muttered to yourself every time before a date. It didn’t matter how many times you attempted to convince yourself of this, your heart never listened. It still longed for Barry’s attention and Barry’s love.
Today, you had another date planned. This was actually the third date that you have been on with this guy and you genuinely enjoyed the time you spent with him. Joshua made you forget about Barry, even though they had some similarities. Tall, intelligent, and awkward, but, maybe you had a type. When you were with Joshua, you could actually see a long relationship in the future and the thought made you happy for the first time in a long time. A knock on your door shook you out of your thoughts. You opened the door and there stood a giddy Joshua.
“(Y/N), a-are you ready,” Joshua stuttered as he ran his hand through his hair. You nodded and pressed a quick kiss to his cheek. His cheeks flushed red as he wrapped his arm around your waist and escorted you out of your apartment.
After a short car ride filled with loving looks and small talk, you arrived at Jitters. Joshua hesitantly grabbed your hand, still terrified that you would pull away in disgust. You offered him a loving smile and walked to an empty table. Sitting at the table with Joshua and making small talk made you think back to the possible future with him and you smiled. A few moments of silence had passed after that, leaving you in your thoughts until you were brought back to reality by Joshua’s hand grabbing yours. He looked into your eyes longingly but quickly looked away.
“(Y/N), I know that this is our third date, but, I feel like I could see something happening between us in the future. And I know that this m-may seem a little quick, b-but, I was wondering if you would like to be my girlfriend? I mean, you don’t have to if you don’t want to,” he quickly stammered out. You looked at him in the eyes once again and smiled, “I would really enjoy that.“Joshua broke into a smile that ranged from ear to ear and he leaned over the table, planting a kiss on your lips. You broke the kiss and looked behind Joshua and saw him.
Of course he was here. The moment that he is not the one thing that you think about, he shows up again and ruins it. Barry saw you and looked at you in a shocked manner. He looks as if he had just seen a ghost. After Barry’s shocked state broke, he walked over to your table. Barry stands their awkwardly, glaring at Joshua before breaking the silence.
“H-How are you, (Y/N)? It’s been a while and w-who’s this?” Barry switched his weight between his feet and kept his hands in his pockets. You looked him in the eyes, still shocked that it has been six months since you had last seen him.
“Barry, I’ve been doing well and this-this is Joshua, my boyfriend.”
Barry glared at Joshua for the second time since arriving at the table. Joshua shrunk in his seat in attempt to escape the hostile glare. Once Barry sensed his fear, he smiled and looked at you once again.
“Well, it has been nice seeing you. Maybe, I’ll start seeing you at the lab again,” Barry winked. Could you start going back to lab? Things shouldn’t be as awkward since you have finally found someone. You nodded your head in agreement. Barry smiled and hugged you before walking away.
“It was meeting you Johnny,” Barry said as he was leaving.
Joshua straightened up in the chair and waved at Barry.
a/n- sorry for the weird spacing at the beginning. I hope everyone enjoys it :)
Harry returned about an hour later, laden with grocery bags- and didn’t get
two steps into his house before he froze, the immediate sense of something wrong
taking him by the throat. There was someone else there. Harry
was still for less than a second while he processed all that, got on his guard,
and was moving again as if he suspected nothing amiss. It was a pause
only someone who did that sort of thing for a living would have noticed at all.
Harry’s guest did do that sort of thing for a living. “Sorry,” he
said. “Didn’t mean to startle you.”
“Eggsy,” Harry said. He relaxed, flicked on the light, and saw Eggsy in the sitting room,
curled up in an armchair. Eggsy was blinking to adjust to the new
brightness; just how long had he been sitting there in the dark? “If I’d
known you would be back already I would’ve offered to pick you up.“
Eggsy’s mouth twisted and he shrugged.
Harry didn’t know if he had done something wrong. It made him feel
awkward. "I wasn’t sure if you would want to go home or not.”
“I did,” Eggsy said.
He didn’t elaborate further, and for a second Harry couldn’t have moved if
his life depended on it. He envisioned Eggsy thinking of this- of him-
as home and it made him weak, made him foolish. He normally tried to be upbeat
about all this, tried not to wallow in how desperately he wanted Eggsy and how much
it would hurt if it never did work out- but Eggsy’s abrupt departure had made him think and feel things he had meant to
put behind him. It was residual bitterness from that period, Harry told
himself, that made him so unreasonably angry for the no-doubt unintended double
meaning. Eggsy hadn’t been saying that.
Prometheus wins | By the end of this week’s emotionally and physically brutal hour, Prometheus (Josh Segarra) finally broke Oliver (Stephen Amell) down in one of the darkest moments of the series. He finally got Oliver to admit he didn’t kill for the greater good; he killed because he wanted to and he liked it. When Prometheus finally let Oliver go after six days of psychological and physical torture, Oliver showed up at the Arrow cave and told Diggle (David Ramsey) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) that he was done with their crusade after coming to that horrible realization about himself. “Prometheus’ plan was to show Oliver that all of his efforts are in vain and that everyone around him is going to be adversely affected by whatever ‘goodwill’ he has,” Ramsey tells THR. “That’s such an involved, intricate plan for a villain to have. The unraveling of Prometheus’ efforts and how it’s affecting Oliver will be the focus of the team for the rest of the season.”
In fact, now that Oliver declared that he was giving up, he’s going to contact the Bratva to get their help in taking down Prometheus in his place. That decision is not going to sit well with Dig and the rest of the team. “Diggle is probably the most evolved, righteous and stable member of the team,” Ramsey says. “He has a very clear view of how he feels about the Bratva. You just don’t get in bed with these guys. Oliver is a constantly evolving superhero and he doesn’t quite have those strong moral lines the way Diggle does. We’re going to have some major conflict. Diggle’s going to be talking to a wall when it comes to Oliver.”
Happier days ahead | This season has been the darkest yet, rivaling season one’s glory days. But executive producer Wendy Mericle promises that the back half of this season won’t be all dark. “There will be some levity coming up in some fun, surprising ways,” she tells THR. “There are some birthdays coming up that we’ve never celebrated on the show before that are going to finally be celebrated. It’s Oliver’s. Why not? It’s not going to be what you think it’s going to be, though, as is our standard.”
Felicity’s crossroads | While Oliver was getting dragged down by Prometheus, Felicity has slowly but surely been getting way in over her head with mysterious hacker group Helix. “She’s going to come out of this season as the most changed character,” Mericle says. “She’s never had to face this in a personal way and she’s now making decisions that are very akin to what Oliver was doing in season one. These are things that she would have judged pretty harshly in seasons past. But she has a new understanding of what everyone around her has been through and it’s going to give her a new appreciation for Diggle and Oliver.”
And Felicity’s illegal actions on behalf of Helix are going to get her in major trouble with her friends, leading to a Felicity vs. Team Arrow conflict. “There is going to be a major showdown with that,” Ramsey says. “Diggle has already warned her and appealed to her higher moral center, but it didn’t work. She’s going to get deeper into Helix and it’s all going to blow up when we come face-to-face. The team is going to be very divided when it needs to come together.”
his eyes from the paperwork on his desk for the first time in hours, Roman Reigns
looked up at his secretary. “No, that will be all. Thank you.”
Have a good night, Mr. Reigns.”
she shut the door behind her, Roman shook his head, chuckling quietly. He was
well aware of the attention his secretary had been giving him these past few
weeks. And not just her; there was a bunch of other women in the fray; fellow
colleagues, clients, family friends; most of them far less subtle about their
intentions than she was. When you were a very successful, newly single young
man, such was to be expected. But as flattered as he was, he had no plans for
another relationship, not so soon after his divorce.
sighed heavily as she came to his mind. Sabrina. The redheaded goddess. The
seductress. The Jezebel that nearly ruined his life.

‘Who’s that?’ Niall asked nonchalantly his eyes still fixed to the screen along with everyone else. Apart from Frankie, the girl Niall had been happily calling his girlfriend for around six months, not a single person looked up to her from the screen. Olivia caught Frankie’s eye as she was giving Niall her ‘are you serious’ look and they shared a knowing smile and eye roll before Olivia walked towards the door. She kicked her jogging bottoms down her ankles, the elastic had ridden up where she’d been sat cross legged and it rested uncomfortably as she walked. She took another bite of the pizza slice in her hand as she pulled the door open, expecting some telesales person that she could fob of with a confused a look and an ‘I don’t understand’ in some undeterminable accent.
‘Harry.’ Olivia spluttered with a mouthful of pizza - ever the lady. She cleared her throat and swallowed the pizza, half chewed and scratching her throat a little as it went down. ‘Thought you weren’t back until tomorrow?’ Olivia grinned widely at his surprise appearance. Harry had been away for three weeks, in America, some convention thing that he went to every year and every year came back with crazy training ideas. He was in typical Harry attire. Too skinny black jeans that didn’t leave anything to the imagination, a white t-shirt, a little see through, and brown scuffed boots. You wouldn’t think he’d recently been on an eleven hour flight or that he was a personal trainer.
so @aceryder was one of the recipients of my 100 follower fic giveaway and requested: ryder x liam where the two of them meet at in a bar in london before the arks leave for the milky way and really hit it off together. ao3 link.
and, well, here’s the story :~)
Summary: Two weeks before the arks leave for Andromeda, Liv Ryder meets a handsome man named Liam at the bar. Too bad they’ll never see each other again.
Olivia will never get used to the feeling of solid ground under her boots. She’s a spacer, through-and-through. Before Mom had taken her final turn for the worst and she and her brother and her dad had all relocated to Earth, she doesn’t recall a time when she’d ever spent more than three months planet-side at a time. Now, it’s going on six, Mom’s dead, and the final preparations for the Andromeda Initiative have been set. Two more weeks, and it’s bye-bye Milky Way, hello, new home.
She can’t lie to herself, though. She knows they’re really just running away from something. Might even be the same thing, in the end.
After days of complaining about pains in your stomach, you had finally got round to going to the doctors. Being six months pregnant, and having stomach pains was something that frightened both you and John. After around a year of trying to get pregnant, you couldn’t believe that there was a chance it could all be taken away from you.
“I’m coming with you.” John said, as he helped you down the stairs.
“No you aren’t. I’ll be fine on my own.” You groaned, grabbing your stomach in pain. “It’s probably nothing.”
“It’s obviously not just ‘nothing’. I am coming with you, whether you like it or not.”
“I don’t like it.” You mumbled. “I know what you are like.”
Steve wouldn’t exactly ask you directly. His apartment did kind of get destroyed during the whole infiltration pickle. So, he’d probably be living between Sam’s place and the base, but his stuff would slowly be moving into your place. It’d start by just a few shirts, but then it would go to him having half the wardrobe and even helping you choose new furniture when you needed it. Then one day he just changed his official address on his SHIELD file from ‘undecided’ to your apartment, but you never actually had any official conversation. It just sort of happened.
Tony Stark/Iron Man
You guys probably would’ve started out as friends, so you would’ve spent loads of time at the tower anyways. He’d give you your own level for when you stayed over, and when you began dating you moved in properly, because it was technically only living in the same building. Then as your relationship grew, you eventually just moved all your stuff into the fancy ass penthouse on the top. But you can’t forget the houses he has in London, Paris, the Hampton’s, Miami and Toronto. You have access to them too.
Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier
He’d be quite a traditional guy - He’d ask you properly, but also casually. Like ‘hey, do you wanna get a place together?’ and because your place was probably only suited for a single, full-time working person, you’d choose a newer, bigger space. Bucky’d probably want something far away from the stress of SHIELD but still pretty near, so he’d go for a place near central park where he can go for runs.
Before he met you, Clint would’ve had a dinky ass place in the back of the Bronx which he only used for showers, despite the fact it had no proper hot water, because he either spent his time in the tower, at the helicarrier or on a mission. SHIELD was his life before he met you. One night, maybe three of four dates into your relationship, he took you back to his because you lost your keys. You were mildly horrified by the state of the place, and you made him cancel the rent and stay at the tower, until you felt you were ready to live together, which happened about six months into dating. You’d move into a pretty big place, probably right in the middle of the city.
After moving back from India after what happened in Manhattan, he would’ve been living in the tower since. You were dating for about a year before you moved in together. You’d do a trial sort of thing at the tower before getting a place together, and after six months of it going really well, you finally bought a house together in Brooklyn, far away from the busy city but still close to your work and friends, and it was perfect.
It would be hard for him, being royalty and all. But you’d come to an agreement, where he’d split his time between Asgard and Earth. You’d spent time there with him too, but when it came to your home on Earth, he’d start crashing at your place pretty early into the relationship. Your sofa at first, and then eventually your bed. As soon as you realised it was a long-term thing, you would get a much bigger place in Manhattan, right across from the Tower. Sadly, still too far away for Tony to read the rude messages you wrote in the window.
Loki would be less fond of staying on Asgard after everything, and things on Earth just seemed much simpler with you. You were adamant at first about getting a place together, especially in New York, but after finding an amazing rowhouse in Manhattan, you were convinced.
Out of all the Avengers and their living situations, Sam would probably be the most normal. Just a nice apartment, in a building overlooking the Hudson. You’d spend a lot of time there from the beginning of your relationship until one day you just realised everything you owned was there and that you may as well pay half the rent.
Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow
Natasha would have a hard time settling down, but for some reason she would really like your apartment. She’d spent a lot of time there before deciding she wanted to live there, and rather than asking, she simply announced ‘I live here now, by the way.’
Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch
You guys would have an entire level to yourselves at the Tower. It’d be hard for you to have an actual apartment since Wanda needs a lot of space and bigger New York apartments cost you an arm and a leg, so your spacious apartment would be perfect with the large living areas and lack of rent to pay.
Pietro would want to have found himself the perfect place - affordable, near a gym and a park, with enough room to run around and also for a dog. The only issue? A place like that didn’t exist, at least not one that you could afford. Ever. At-least not on his own. But with your wages and some Christmas money from your parents and Tony, you managed to get the place together, and it couldn’t have

So Iris, like the rest of the team Flash, has to reintroduce herself to you. Will you fall for her all over again or is that possibility lost forever?

He almost can’t believe his eyes, the sudden shock to his system rendering him completely incapable to move as he stands with his hands at his side and the breath catching in his throat. He grows numb from dismay, from a flood of emotions, and he can’t even begin to think about what kind of fear, apprehension, regret, love would be dancing behind his eyes at the same moment.
He had been stupid to think that after all this time, after all these seconds, minutes, hours, weeks away from you would have been good for him. Especially given all the shit you’ve both been through, it should have been easy to let go of you, easy to push you to the back of his mind and busy himself with the real stuff, the important stuff. So what if he’s spent far too long trying to stop being so hung up over you? You were his first girlfriend, his first love, and everything else in between. He had created a whole new perspective, a whole newfound respect for his life—one that became undeniably brighter with you in it.
And then you had to go and stomp over all that hard work, all that care and effort and love. He should have hated you, despised you even, for turning him into something he almost couldn’t recognize anymore.
But however, in spite of everything, in spite of the passiveness, the awkward glances and the silence that felt more like heavy tons weighing on his shoulder, his heart still beat for you. The sight of you elicited fire in his nerves, making him feel alive for the first time since you walked away, since he let you go.
It had been six months since he last saw you, that final sunny morning in June—you, in a sundress, eyes full of tears, him leaving your apartment, shattering the last remains of trust that could have possibly been lingering in the atmosphere.
But now, 3 weeks before Christmas, dressed in a navy blue winter coat, beanie, black jeans, boots, and a smile, arms filled with carefully wrapped presents, the love and attention clearly shown, long hair decorated with the falling snow outside, standing in the door frame as Seokjin opens it wider to make it easier to step through—!
“It’s a combination of two runes. One on the top, the other on the bottom.” Starstone? Everblaze? Neverseen? A million compound words were flooding into Sophie’s head. “What are the words? What does it mean?” “It means Nightfall.”
Sophie Foster has been ready to fight back for months. Now the fight has finally been brought to her. The Neverseen are growing bolder. They’ve kidnapped a host of people related to the Black Swan and have begun raiding elvin and human cities alike. A new, powerful elf has risen to power in their dark ranks. And to top it all off, the Lost Cities have been plunged into war against the ogres.
Everyone thinks that Sophie’s sister Amy holds the final clue to beating the Neverseen. Physic has faith in Amy’s purpose, as do Prentice and Sophie herself. But as tensions rise, families are torn apart, and loyalties are questioned, Sophie has to ask herself which side the Black Swan is really on.
In a prediction of the sixth installment of Shannon Messenger’s bestselling Keeper of the Lost Cities series, Sophie and her friends must each choose their own side in the inevitable war. The lines between good and evil have been blurred, and one of them will have to make the ultimate sacrifice to save their world.
