We’ve All Got Scars - El Diablo x Reader one-shot - SMUT

Request:

Can you write a El Diablo NSFW? Maybe something like reader is Flag’s lil sis and she’s younger than Diablo so he’s scared he’ll hurt her at first but he ends up being rough? 🔥

 a/n: I hope this is what you had in mind. I wound up listening to Shakira’s “Empire” while writing this one and found it really inspiring. Thanks for requesting it! Keep sending me requests, guys! I need to write!

Rating: M (language and smut. Oral, male and female receiving, fingering, NSFW Gifs, and a whole lot of sexy times)

We’ve All Got Scars

You watched Diablo as he stared out the window at the street below. You’d been asked by Waller to accompany him on this mission since it was the first one he’d ever done solo. Flag had demanded to be allowed to come too, but Waller had refused.

“She’s not just your baby sister, Flag. She’s one of my agents. My agents don’t need handlers.” Waller had said.

The mission had been a success and you and Diablo were now just waiting for Waller to send a helicopter to take you home.

Your phone rang and you stepped out into the hall to take it.

“Agent Flag,” Waller’s voice pierced through the phone. “The bird we sent to lift the two of you has been compromised. We need you to lay low for the night. We’ll get you out of there first thing in the morning.”

“Yes Ma’am.” You say before hanging up the phone.

You didn’t mind having to wait; it gave you more time with Diablo. You’d never admit it to Rick, but you’d had a bit of a thing for the pyrokinetic since you first met him a few years earlier. This was the first time you two were to be alone for a period of time without having to worry about work. You planned to take advantage of it.

Today Yemeni bodega and restaurant owners across the five boroughs closed up shop in protest. My little corner of Brooklyn has many Arab and Muslim-owned businesses—especially Syrian, Lebanese, and Yemeni (shout-out to my beloved Damascus Bakery!)—so I wasn’t surprised to see several of them shut today, including the one I go to most frequently.

But the streets in my neighborhood were bustling this afternoon: I passed big groups of people holding flags and signs and heading towards Borough Hall, where a solidarity rally would be held this evening. I showed up before the official start time and hundreds of people were already there, packing the steps of Borough Hall and waving American flags. I saw someone say later that they’d never seen so many American flags at a protest, and I’d say the same. It was an endless sea of red, white, and blue.

I’ve always had the privilege to scoff at flag-waving patriotism. Two generations removed from immigration to this country, it’s something I could always take for granted. But I’m hard-pressed to remember a moment where I’ve watched people chant “USA! USA!” and wave American flags and felt so moved. It doesn’t take much for me to cry these days, but still. To embrace a country whose government is actively trying to reject you—to cheer for it wholeheartedly—takes an extraordinary amount of courage.

A man held a sign that said: “Brooklyn my home. Brooklynites my family. United we stand.” Fellow New Yorkers: let’s make sure we fight like hell to let him know that we feel the same way about him.

A Town to Avoid

Just the other day, I got an anonymous tip about a town so problematic, I can’t believe it actually exists. 

It’s a themed town called Germany, filled with antisemitism and Nazi propaganda. Yes, you read that right.

I’ve put the Dream Address and a bunch of screencaps under the cut, because I checked it out so you don’t have to.

Please SIGNAL BOOST to let others know not to visit this awful town.

Hogwarts Thoughts


After the battle, everyone would start to realise the danger of discrimination and anger. Pride month would be celebrated and it would be celebrated hard. Harry marching through the halls wearing a bi flag as a cape, dragging a disgruntled but secretly pleased Draco behind him. Ginny and Luna laughing and hugging as they throw rainbow confetti down the stairs. Dean and Seamus walking round hand in hand cheering as more and more first years slowly start walking behind them. Hermione and Pansy swapping scarves and dancing through the halls.
