He will never forget the first time he saw her. He was heading to the dorm after a dance practice when he heard somebody singing. It was pretty late but he still looked around to see if any of the fans were following him. Good. Tonight was quiet. He pulled his mask on and headed in the direction of the park. There was hardly anyone around, except for her. She was sitting on the bench. The first thing Taehyung thought was that her voice sounded like out of this world. He leaned on one of the trees and closed his eyes. Somehow her singing calmed him down. He was standing there for a few minutes when the singing ceased. He opened his eyes and noticed that she was staring in his direction. He looked around to see if anybody was behind him but to his surprise she was looking at him and smiled. This made him blush and he quickly left the park. Good thing he was wearing a mask or she would have noticed how red he became.

▲▼▲▼▲

A few nights later he couldn’t resist to go check out if she would be there again. He heard her voice from a distance and was once again drawn to it. It was starting to get warmer and this time she had a crowd around her. They all clapped loudly after each song, sometimes throwing some money into the bucket placed besides her.

“So she’s a street performer.” he thought. He waited there and listened to her till he was the only one left standing.

“It’s you.” she spoke.

“You know me?” Taehyung asked.

“Not yet. But I remember those eyes.” she smiled giving him a hand. “My name is Y/N.”

Her smile made him feel warm and he took and shaked her hand taking his mask off at the same time. He waited for some kind of reaction but she showed no signs of knowing him.

“What?” she asked.

“It’s strange. You really don’t know who I am?”

“Should I?” she chuckled.

“Ah no no, it’s just that-“ he started stuttering, embarrassed of his own question. “Of course. Not everyone is going to know about you.” he thought.

“I didn’t quite catch your name.”

“Oh it’s Taehyung, nice to meet you.” and just now he noticed that he was holding her hand the whole time. “I’m sorry.” he said quickly letting go of it.

“It’s okay.” she smiled again. “Do you like music?”

“Yeah! I love music! I’m a singer myself.” he blurted and then realized what he said. Somehow he didn’t yet want her to know that he belonged in a group. “But I just sing to myself and such, not like I’m a pro or anything, you know.” he tried to explain.

“That’s amazing!! We should definitely try singing together one day.”

“That would be great.” he said as he checked the time. “Oh shoot. I was supposed to be back 2 hours ago.” he thought.

“In a hurry?”

“Kind of. Will you be here tomorrow?”

“Where else.” she said but Taehyung didn’t take it into consideration that time and just quickly waved her goodbye and rushed back.

▲▼▲▼▲

He couldn’t stop thinking about her but their schedules became so packed that he couldn’t go see her for almost 2 weeks. Sad that he probably missed his chance, he still wandered into the park. Maybe. Just maybe she will be there.

He was more surprised not by the fact that she was there but because she was actually sleeping on the same bench he always saw her singing on. He then noticed she was wearing the same clothes from their last meeting. Concerned he approached. He took his jacket off and put it on her but as he was looking at her face she woke up.

“Taehyung!?” she gasped. “Oh gosh, this is embarrassing.”

“Y/N, are you okay? Why are you sleeping here? It’s already really late outside.”

“Because I don’t have where to go.” she said averting her gaze to the ground. She held onto Taehyung’s jacket and started crying.

Only then did he realize that the owner of this angelic voice was actually homeless. He had so many questions as to what happened because she looked about his age but decided to leave them for later and just sat down and took her in his arms.

“I’m sorry.” was all he could say but that was enough as she hugged him back and cried till there was nothing left. Her breathing slowed down and Taehyung noticed that she fell asleep.

“How cute.” he thought wiping the tears away from her face. “I can’t leave her here.” he told himself as he picked her up and put her on his back. “She can stay with me for as long as she wants.” he decided, heading in the direction of the dorm.

Warning: Violence, Reader Abuse


Harley’s blue eyes were focused on you as you straddled the Jokers lap. Your arms wrapped around his neck as you laughed, the smirk on your lips managing to make her even more jealous. He had thrown her aside and she wasn’t handling it well. Throwing herself into a spiral of drunken nights where she wanted nothing more then to go to him and beg him to take her back. It was killing her to see you with him.

anawinkaro  asked:

From the promt, number 12 "You need to stop.." With Connverse please<3

“Okay,” Steven said, picking up another flashcard, “what are the four lobes of the brain - ”

“Frontal, parietal, occipital, and temporal,” Connie answered before she even took a second to breathe. Meanwhile, her fingers rested on her temple.

She was leaning against her bed’s headboard while he rested by her feet, on his stomach. They were comfortable, relaxed in each other’s presence. It was hot for a spring day, and the Maheswaran household had a rule about using the AC before the summer months, so the pair wore their summer clothes: she wore running shorts and a tank top, while he still wore his iconic star shirt and shorts.

“That’s correct!” Steven said, thrilled and impressed, as he flipped over the flashcard.

Connie smiled as she watched him. “Thanks for helping me study for my final.” She took her AP Psychology final and her junior year of high school very seriously.

“You’re very welcome!” He said, straightening the cards in his hand. He looked up at her, smirking, “Though it doesn’t seem like you need my help.”

She smiled at his compliment but shook her head. “No, you’re really helping.”

“Okay, next question,” he looked down at the flashcard then back up at Connie to see if she was ready. She was holding both her temples.

“You okay?” He asked.

She looked surprised that he noticed, then she waved out her hand. “Just a headache. I’m fine.”

He set down the cards and propped up his body with his arms. “Maybe we should take a break.”

“No! Seriously, I’m fine.”

He pursed his lips. He propped himself to sit up. “I could help.”

She raised her eyebrows.

He pointed at his lips. “Healing spit.”

“Oh,” she said. She looked hesitant for a moment before nodding. 

He got on all fours. He moved quickly, too quickly to think or plan the most comfortable option; he set his arm by her hip to steady himself, then he leaned over her body to reach her forehead. But just as quickly as he moved in, he licked his lips, kissed her forehead, then moved back to sit on his legs.

Immediately, her head felt better. She put her hand to her forehead. “Thanks, Steven.”

She chuckled as a question popped into her head. “Are all your kisses magical?”

He looked up, pondering. “I’m not sure.”

Her eyebrows furrowed. “What if you kissed places that didn’t need healing? Would nothing happen, or would like some super-healing thing happen? Would they be invincible for like a week?”

He laughed. “I don’t know. I figure out the magical stuff on kind of a case-by-case basis.”

Her face felt hot before she even spoke up. She thought about how close he had just been, leaning over her, and how soft his kiss was. She dared herself to whisper, “We could find out.”

His body tensed. He spoke slowly. “What do you mean?”

She tried to choose her words carefully. Her eyes darted from his face to looking up as she weighed each word. “We could see what happens when you kiss places that aren’t necessarily hurt.”

He was still frozen, so she said, “An experiment. For science.”

“Right,” he said, blinking his eyes. “For science. Maybe - we fight some monsters someday, and I need to know if I can use my healing spit as armor for my comrades.”

“Or! If your healing spit can work like a vaccine that can keep people from getting sick before they even get in contact with any germs?”

“Yeah,” he said, licking his lips again, “for science, then.”

As she moved down from the headboard and down to rest her head on her pillow, she said back, “For science.”

After a pause, he fidgeted with his hands. “I…I guess I can start with your toes.”

She felt a slight panic go through her core. She felt this panic whenever she couldn’t predict an outcome - this felt like a gamble, a million dollar bet on the underdog, as she wasn’t sure what to expect - or what could happen to her friendship with Steven.

But if her training had taught her anything, it was courage, confidence, that she could make a decision and follow through with it. Her panic subsided, and his lips pressed against her big toe.

She closed her eyes and felt his kisses move from her foot to her ankle. He moved up slowly, following a straight line up her left leg. 

He took a breath at her knee, his nose touching her lower thigh.

She inhaled through her nose. She wondered what would happen now that he was moving to more sensitive skin, and his pause seemed to show he was wondering the same thing.

As he kissed up her thigh, the straight line curved: he found her inner thigh.

She breathed out. His kisses tickled her skin as his lips moved up her inner thigh.

He kissed at her lower stomach, just the visible skin where her shirt had ridden up. She pulled her shirt up a little, just enough to show her belly button, to give him more skin to kiss.

He moved from her stomach to her fingers that still rested on her shirt. He kissed up her wrist, up her forearm, her upperarm, and her shoulder.

He kissed her collar bone. “How does it feel?”

“Good,” she replied, nearly forgetting the hypothesis they were testing. She let out another breath as his lips moved up the side of her neck.

“Do you feel better? Any different?” He asked, sitting up.

She sat up, too, remembering the purpose now that she was out of the moment. “Oh. Well, honestly, I don’t feel much different. I mean,” she examined her fingers, “I did have this tiny scar on my thumb, and it looks like it might be gone. But, otherwise, I kinda just feel the same.”

“Oh,” he said then pursed his lips. “Well, I guess now we know, huh?”

“Yeah,” she said. Her eyes noticed his forearm, and she wondered what he felt like. She said quickly, before she could think of any consequences, “Or maybe we need a control.”

“Control?” He asked.

She leaned her weight on her arm, trying to look relaxed. “In an experiment, you need a control to show what something would look like normally, and then you have something to compare the experiment to.”

When he still didn’t look like he got where she was going with it, she said, “Maybe you could be the control. You know, just to see if maybe my kisses feel different from yours.”

He froze for a moment as his eyes widened. He then said, “Okay,” and flopped down on the bed.

She giggled, red rising in her cheeks, as she told him to move to the pillows. And when he was laying where she had laid during her turn, she kissed his ankle.

She moved quicker than he had, kissing the main parts of his body first: his shin, his knee, his lower thigh. She kissed his fingers, his hand, his forearm and upperarm, but she was more focused on moving upward.

She made sure to kiss every inch of his neck. He breathed out, and he put his hands on her back.

But as she continued, he began to giggle.

“You need to stop,” he chuckled.

“What?” She asked as she moved away from his neck. “Did I do something wrong?”

“No,” he said, rubbing her back, “it’s just tickling me.”

“Oh,” she said, blushing. “Well, before the tickling…how did it feel?”

“It felt good,” he said, then chuckled, “I mean, it doesn’t feel like gem magic or healing spit, so, uh, I think this experiment might have been a failure.”

“Not a complete failure,” she said. She stayed close to his face, ready to kiss him again if needed. “Now we know.”

He smirked. “Now we know.”

What’s My Name (part 2)

Young!Sirius Black x Reader

Plot: Part two of ‘What’s My Name?’ where the reader is scared because of the wizarding war, and Sirius is comforting her. 

Word count: 1555
Disclaimer: I don’t own anything recognisable.
Warning: Swearing


The book in her lap felt heavy against her skin, but it was nothing compared to the eyes following her; crushing her. She tried to focus on the people in front of her. James Potter and Sirius Black had officially become her friends one month ago, because of an accidental run in with the dark and mysterious boy from the house of Black. Not that he’s that mysterious once one gets to know him – way to talkative.

(Y/N) looked at the boys arguing over what colour a shrinking solution turns.

“I brewed one with Remus in fourth year, and it turned red,” Sirius claimed.

“Nah, that was a laugh-inducing potion, you wanker, shrinking solutions is blue,” James protested.

“Oh, shut up, Prongs, I know my potions,” Sirius laughed.

“If you did, you would know the answer is blue and not bloody red,” James closed the book, and the sound of the pages smacking together caused Madam Pince to eye them with care.

(Y/N) licked her lips, smiling amused at the Gryffindors, “Actually the right answer is green,” (Y/N) pointed out.

“Really?” Sirius asked.

“No, it’s blue.”

“No, it’s green.”

“I think she might be right, Jamesy,” Sirius took her side quickly, he usually did.

“Fine, I don’t really care, just never call me that again,” James pretended to shiver with disgust.

As she began to laugh at the ridiculous act, a small piece of paper shaped like a bird landed in front of her. She unfolded it cautiously. When she read the note, her head turned quickly. A pair of sixth-year students sat facing her. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary; they were just sending her short, seemingly innocent glances now and then. The note, on the other hand, told another story.

Mudblood. The word stung.

Mudblood. She’d heard it before. Of course, she had, it’s what she was after all, but she’d imagined her last year at Hogwarts to be different. Less judgemental.

“What’s that?” Sirius asked her once he noticed the paper in her hand.

“Nothing, just a reminder to hand in the potions book before eight tonight, you know how Madam Pince gets if a book goes missing,” (Y/N) lied. It was easier if they didn’t know, they had enough on their plates already.

“Yeah, she’s a bit off her trolly, right?” James snickered.

“Once, she hunted me down in the infirmary because I hadn’t handed in a book I borrowed,” Sirius told them.

“Padfoot..” James shook his head, “First of all, Peter was the one lying in the infirmary bed, and second, you stole the book from the forbidden section,” James rolled his eyes, exposing his best friend.

“Restricted section, there’s a difference. And I know that, Prongs, but (Y/N) over her, she didn’t know that, and now my story is not so exciting anymore.”

“Wasn’t that exciting to begin with, Sirius,” (Y/N) winked at him as his face turned into a pained expression.

xxx

“No,” the red-haired girl exclaimed angry, “No, they did not!”

(Y/N) hushed her, looking around the hallway to see if anyone heard them.

“Don’t talk so loud, Lily,” she didn’t mean for the words to come out as harsh as they did, but her anxiety took hold of her emotions.

“Nobody’s here, (Y/N),” Lily tried to reassure the Hufflepuff girl, but it didn’t work.

“This is Hogwarts, Lily; the walls could have ears for all we know,” she used her fingers to straighten out her hair as she spoke.

“Okay, sorry,” Lily said, but the apology was obviously quite half-hearted.

(Y/N) had a feeling Lily acted courageously because that was the only way her friends had ever seen her. She played pretend whenever the topic of rising muggleborn deaths was brought up, or when Voldemort covered the first page of The Daily Prophet. She couldn’t bring herself to be scared because it didn’t fit her strong image.

“I believe you’re overreacting, (Y/N), as you said, this is Hogwarts, nothing bad is going to happen to us here,” Lily touched the girl’s shoulder, squeezing tight.

(Y/N) shook her head, “But there’s a world outside of Hogwarts, Lily, and I want to live in it.”

Xxx

She moved quickly across the corridor. Blending into the shadows of the many lights that flickered beautifully, illuminating her skin. She passed a paper flowing magically through the hallway; it had names written in black ink on its white surface. (Y/N)’s name was the third name on the list. A list of all the muggleborn students at the school. Funny.

The professors had tried to take down the horrible list that some of the pureblood-supremacist students had hung up all over the school two weeks ago, but each time one disappeared, another paper replaced it.

When (Y/N) started her last year at Hogwarts, she had not been optimistic, rather the opposite, but nothing could prepare the muggleborn girl for a year like this. She was a decease trapped within the walls of this magical castle. And no one understood her constant fear.

After the war broke out it had been insufferable to be what (Y/N) was. Born with the wrong blood.

She tried her best to hide her fear, but the truth was that every day felt like it might be her last. Evil eyes followed her every move. The note she’d gotten was nothing compared to the constant feeling of being hunted.

“(Y/L/N)!” A boy with green robes stopped her in her tracks.

“Malfoy,” (Y/N) greeted him coldly.

“Where’s your Gryffindork gang when you need them, Mudblood?” the girl behind him asked, laughing in a high pitch.

“I don’t need anyone.”

“Ahh, you sure about that?” Bellatrix asked, drawing her wand from inside her robes. Quickly, a jet of red light blasted towards the Hufflepuff girl, and she barely managed to dodge the spell.

“Are you out of your mind?” She yelled at the Slytherin.

(Y/N) fished out her wand from her back pocket, casting a spell that hit the white-haired boy in the chest. He started to move uncontrollably around the corridor, a shocked expression on his face, turning angry.

Another jet of light zoomed towards her, and this time it hit her leg.

“(Y/N)!” someone yelled behind her as she tripped, crashing towards the floor.

The Slytherin students turned, running away as fast as the voices of (Y/N)’s friends could be heard behind the girl.

“I’m fine,” (Y/N) snapped at James as he tried to help her up.

“I can’t believe those cunts,” Sirius called out.

“They’re not getting away with this,” Peter looked at the girl, his voice upset.

“I said, I’m fine!” (Y/N) cut their banter off.

“(Y/N),” Sirius mumbled, his hand touching hers. She stepped back.

“It’s okay to be upset, but don’t take it out on the boys, they are only trying to help,” Sirius told her, trying to calm her down. Unfortunately, it did the opposite.

“You know what? Fuck James, and fuck you!”

“Um, what?” James looked confused at the girl.

“You both think you know what it’s like, because of what? You’re blood traitors? Is that it? You think you understand how it is to walk down the halls of this bloody awful school, people spitting at you because you’re different. Because you don’t share the same fucking blood as them?”

“We never meant to hurt you, (Y/N), but we’ve all got something you know, something that makes us targets in this war,” James began.

“No, you don’t get to play the victim card here, because it’s too fucking easy for you- you were both born with a safety net wrapped around you.” (Y/N) bit her lip frustrated.

None of the boys said anything; she didn’t know if it was out of anger, or because they understood what she meant through her heated shouting.

“Do you know what it feels like to have people be too afraid to look you in the eyes anymore? Because they are so scared for their lives, of what might happen to them if someone thinks they’ve picked a side?” She asked, looking into the eyes of the boy who’d been there for her for months now.

“I- I..” he tried to find the right words, but nothing came out.

“I’m sorry, (Y/N), but what do you want me to do about it?”

“I want you to..” (Y/N) started her sentence, but there was nothing she could say, nothing he could do.

As Sirius stepped closer to her, touching her upper arm, she rested her forehead against his hand.

“It’s unfair of me to want anything from you,” she confessed, “I’m just so scared, Sirius.”

“Me too,” he nodded, “and before you say anything, I know my situation isn’t anywhere near yours, my blood status is an advantage, but don’t you think for a second we’re not gonna fight for the right cause – the winning cause.”

“Always,” she agreed, “but, I think I should get back, it’s getting late,” it really wasn’t that late, but if (Y/N) stayed for one more second, she would burst out crying.

“I’ll follow you back,” Sirius said, “You know, just in case those arsehole Slytherins come back.”

“I don’t need you to defend me, Sirius,” she smiled.

“I never said you did, I just want to punch Malfoy in the face,” he laughed, wrapping his arm around her waist.

“Fair enough.”

But if you’re friends with Victor you have to be gay...

His eyes fluttered open, remembering the white ceiling he’s gotten used to. His hyung, he still called his professor to bring him to school and he would only go to her class but found himself talking to that girl again. Why was she around him? She was like him in a way, mysterious and teasing but even more interesting. It was a cat and mouse game, the same one he played with you but it was player against player. He was going to win, no matter what it took.

He went to the kitchen, scratching his hair and yawning while he rummaged through the fridge. It was surprisingly full, settling on an apple and sitting at the table. He heard his hyung coming out, the girl he saw the other day ran out crying in her own clothes. His hyung sighed as he opened the fridge, grabbing instant coffee and heating up a kettle.

“Did you sleep well?”

“You’re not funny, you little shit.”

“Then, why am I laughing? Seriously, hyung, are you alright?”

“No, I’m not, Gukkie.”

“You miss her, don’t you?”

“It doesn’t matter; she won’t come back to someone like me.”

“Hyung, you two were so in love with each other. You would see on the couch, cuddling and kissing each other. She made you smile which is rare. You looked so much better with her, you looked happier. All those chicks, they make you look like you’ve hit rock bottom.”

“Are you giving me a pep talk or trying to insult me?”

“Can’t it be both? She misses you, hyung.”

“Stick to eating apples, kid. Don’t you have class today?”

“If I say no, will you let me stay home?”

“No way, kid.” His hyung ruffled his hair, taking a sip of his coffee and sitting in front of him. He scoffed at him, taking a generous bite of his apple and looked at the clock.

“When do you do groceries?”

“I hope you realize I don’t live off coffee, Jeongguk. Hyun… she was worried about you and brought them.”

“She was worried about me or you?”

“Knock it off, kid.”

“She still likes you, why can’t you see it?”

“Even if she did, she won’t be okay with me and what I’ve done.”

“It’s not like you cheated on her.”

“I haven’t. I couldn’t.”

“Hyung.” He was interrupted by knocking; his hyung went to open the door as he finished the rest of his apple. He got up, tossing away the core and walking towards the door to see his hyung uncomfortably trying to talk to his professor with his hand scratching the back of his neck. He laughed at the two of them standing there with their hand behind their backs and he went to change his clothes. He wore his usual black beanie, a white shirt, blue jeans and his timberlands. He grabbed his earbuds, still listening to your favourite songs and saved the both of them from this strange standoff.

“I’m ready, Noona.”

“Jeongguk, she’s your professor. Show some respect.”

“It’s alright… Come on, Jeongguk.” She took a sigh of relief as did his hyung and he smiled to himself, moving past his hyung into the hallway with her

“Bye, hyung.”

“Bye, Gukkie and um… Hyun..”

“Bye–”

“God, this is so unbearable. Let’s go.” He pulled his professor along to her car, sitting in the passenger seat and she straightened out before sitting down. She cleared her throat and he smiled again, noticing how nervous she was.

“Noona?”

“Jeongguk.”

“Can’t you just drop me off at the mall or something? It’salongthe same way to the university.”

“I know you don’t go to first period, Mr. Han gives me so much crap about it. Why aren’t you going to class, Jeongguk?”

“It’s boring. He has nothing to tell me and you’ll tell hyung if I didn’t go to your class.”

“This kid, you’re so much trouble. Go to class.” She hit the back of his head, her bracelet hurting him more than her fist did.

“Noona, focus on driving, please. Ow.”

“So, you do feel pain.” He deadpanned; does everyone think that he’s emotionless? He scoffed, watching her park and hoping that Professor jackass won’t catch him his time. Hyun tried to call him back, he just kept walking and he felt a presence right next to him.

“Hey, stray cat. Running from Professor Kang, I see?”

“Why do you seem to know everything about me?”

“I told you, you’re more of an open book than you think you are, Jeongguk.”

“So, Ms. Know-it-all, do you at least have a name?”

“A name is an identity. Something that shapes a person. You don’t know me well enough.”

“I know you frustrate me to no end.”

“At least, you’re honest about your feelings to me. Why can’t you do the same for Y/N?”

“What are you?”

“I am you.”

“You’re so.” She had the same grin that he had when he tricked you or frustrated you. Why does everything about her remind him of you? He saw you coming down the hallway, talking with squid ink again. With his height and attitude, he was fit to be your purse dog and it made him sick. He gritted his teeth, feeling her hand holding his just as you noticed him. What’s the possibility that mystery girl always knew where and when Y/N was? He looked at her, she looked cute and innocent but she had so much underneath her.

He needs to know her.

“Hey, Y/N!”

“Oh, hey. Oh, and Jeongguk. How are you?”

“Great, Gukkie’s been pretty antsy this morning. Did you forget your morning coffee, darling?” How the hell did she know that?

“Yeah.”

“Oh, Jimin’s going to be late. I’ll talk to you later, bye you two.” She looked happier, Jimin kissing her cheek as they went. He balled his fist and let go of mystery girl’s hand, why was she smiling?

“What the hell is wrong with you?”

“Maybe you should ask that question to yourself?” He grabbed her wrist, this runaround game was fun for a while but he didn’t even play with you for that long. She followed him outside; sat with him without any resistance all while she wore that smug grin proudly.

“Ever since you decide to pop into my life, you’ve managed to make everything worse. You made Y/N think we’re dating; you chat with her as if you’re good friends while you play me as if I’m some stupid fiddle. Why the hell did you come into my life? Why the hell can’t I kick you out? Why the fuck are you still smiling at me?”

“You. You’re the only one that hasn’t noticed. I was always there, Jeongguk. Don’t you see it, you arrogant asshole? I’m one of you and I have been waiting for you to notice me.”

“One of me? You’re a girl.”

“Wow, you have a blockhead. Look at my ears.” She moved them. Like he could. She was in public with her eyes uncovered and he didn’t notice.

Why didn’t he notice…?

“Mira…”

“The one and only, Gukkie.”

Reassuring Him

“I know you’ll do great,” she smiled, resurring him.

She reach forward and brushing a piece of grass off of from his shoulder.

He grinned down at her, watching her as she glanced around.

“Front row?”

“Front row,” she answered affirmatively. “You’ll see me. Cheering for you, even if I don’t wear any of your colours. You’ll see that t later.”

“Good.” He leaned over and pressed his lips to her forehead before pulling away with a smile.

“I’ll see you.”

She nodded, a small smile on her lips. “Later.”

As he jogged away to warm up with the rest of the team, she stayed by the sidelines, watching. After a moment, a member of the other team approached her, and she turned to greet him.

“Hi,” he grinned through his helmet, flashing white teeth.

she smiled politely. “Hi… Ron, you didn’t need to greet me I’m your friend.” she looked up at him expectantly, waiting for him to get to the point.

He tossed his lacrosse stick from hand to hand absently as he watched her. “I just noticed you over here and decided to come say hi.”

“Well hello, you just ignored what I just said and start to lamely flirt with me huh?” she replied, turning her body away. She thought about a way to push him away gracefully, who thought having Draco looking her way and see her best friend flirt.

“Good luck in the game, I look forward to seeing my boyfriend beat you.” Her voice was light, joking, but there was an undertone of seriousness.

He laughed, adjusting his helmet. “No offense, but his team is not going to beat us.”

She raised your eyebrows, turning back to face him straight on. “I don’t think so.”

He mimicked her, raising one eyebrow as he tilted his head to the side. He took a small step forward, moving closer to her slowly. He stopped when the front of his helmet was about an inch from her nose. She could see his eyes in detail now, the way they held a kind of confidence, like they never had before.

“I think so,” he replied softly, meeting her eyes.

It was as if she were locked into staring at him; there was something about him that made it so that she couldn’t look away, couldn’t move. Although she wanted to. Because she’s with Draco, not this cocky friend she knew from first year and in the other team, she was supposed to cheer for.

“No, I know he’ll win.” she mumbled, still searing into his eyes.

“Excuse me,” a voice came from behind her, and she immediately recognized it as Draco’s. “Can we help you with something?”

Ron leaned back in surprise, slightly startled by the sudden appearance. Draco’s arm snaked around her waist and tugged her back towards him, and she willingly melted into his side, wrapping an arm around his torso and letting her cheek rest on his green covered chest.

“We?” Ron asked, narrowing his eyes.

“Yes, we,” Draco answered, his voice cold and unappreciative. “She’s with me. Remember Weasley? You do remember right, you know in that tiny space of a brain you call in your head, that she’s going out with me, not you, me.”

She looked up at Ron with a small nod. She could tell that he was annoyed, having been turned away by her and called out by her boyfriend. He let out a small snort.

“Have something you want to say?” Draco asked, cocking his head at the red head.

She glanced up at him, shaking her head with a small motion as herr fingers tightened around his shirt.

“Draco, no,” she whispered.

Ron raised his eyebrows, leaning on his broom. “Oh, nothing, just wondering why a girl like her, in Gryffindor, smart and not a Pureblood would pick and date a guy like you.”

She could feel the way Draco bristled with anger, instinctively shifting forward. Her grip on his shirt tightened, and she let herself slide slightly more in front of him. She knew that if the redhead kept egging him on, this wasn’t going to end well.

“It’s because you let a beautiful, smart and kind woman go and slept with that flower girl, and I was there to pick up the pieces. Not you, but me. I would never treat her like what you did. And I don’t care if she’s Pureblood or not, I like her the way she is.”

“Aw and stop it,” she hissed at her boyfriend not wanting a fight between her friend and boyfriend start before the game, she then looked to Ron as he opened his mouth wanting to say something, but she interrupted him. “Get out of here.”

He shook his head with another cocky laugh before meandering back to his team. Draco’s shoulders heaved with angry breath, his cheeks pink on his pale face, she turned back to him, resting her palms on his chest as she rolled up onto her tiptoes so that she was eye level with him.

“Hey,” she whispered. “Look at me.”

He shifted his eyes from Ron back to her, and she nodded. “I’m not going anywhere, okay? I’m staying right here.”

“He was all up on you,” he huffed with irritation.

“I know, I know. But I’m all up on you,” she answered, moving closer until their chests touched.

“Got it?”

Draco’s eyes flickered down before meeting her eyes once more.

“I’m yours. And a dick of a Weasel isn’t going to change that. Even though he’s one of my best friends.” With that, she leaned forward, letting their lips brush over each others.

A low hum came from his chest and he tilted his chin up, connecting her lips. His hands slid to her waist as he kissed her with a claiming vengeance. When he pulled away, they were both smiling, and as he went back to the field, he knew her words had been true; she wasn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

At the other side of the green field, the dark haired boy, with round glasses talked with his friend as the redhead walked arrogantly to his teammates. “What were you doing, Ron?”

“Trying to get her back.”

“Can’t you see how happy she is?”

“Are you saying she wasn’t happy when we were going out?”

“She was. But you cheated on her with Lavender. You don’t deserve Hermione anymore, I don’t care if you’re my friend Ron. But Hermione is too, and I think Draco is perfect for her. She’s happy, and I’m happy for her.”

Ron huffed and walked out the field to the locker rooms, glaring at the couple on the right of him, as Draco Malfoy lets go of Hermione Granger to his team mates.

Luke:

Spotting the tall figure at the end of the hall, (y/n) ran with a smile tugging on her lips. She hadn’t seen Luke all morning, although the two walked to school that same day. He had disappeared right after they entered school, and had not attended their shared classes. Running towards him, she wrapped her arms around his waist from behind, whilst he was taking out his books from his locker.

“Hey! Where’ve you been?” she chirped, unwrapping her arms from his, failing however to notice how frigid his stature was.  “Nevermind, I have so much to tell you! You literally missed the best thing ever!”

(y/n) eagerly started pouring out how their Maths teacher pranked Jace, a fellow classmate who was sleeping in through the class, and then resulted into chewing him out. Her fast talking and overly excited attitude, which he usually found very up-lifting, was rather irritating at the moment.

“Will you just shut it?” he growled at her, his words coming out harsher than anything he has ever said to her. Her words got stuck in her throat upon hearing his cold dismissal, her eyes blinking at him in perplexity.

“Excuse me?” her voice came out weaker than she hoped, her whisper barely audible to him. She didn’t know what could’ve possibly triggered that reaction from him, only aware of how much it stung.

“Look, I’m not in the fucking mood to listen to this, so fucking drop it!” Luke turned to face her, the harsh slam of his locker mimicking the weight of his words. But whilst his first outburst had left her bewildered, his next words made her burn with fury.

“Don’t you dare swear at me like that! Especially since I haven’t done anything wrong to you!” she pointed her index finger at him, her eyes staring at him with so much ferocity he almost stumbled back.

Bumping his shoulder, she walked past him, rage laced with hurt radiating from her. The previous fire that burned with frustration was put out by her words, leaving behind ashes of distress and guilt as soon as he realised that he had lashed out on the wrong person. He had in no way intended to utter those words; he’d actually hoped that they’d both get to hang out during lunch, that being the only appealing thought that got him through the dreadful morning.

Taking a seat in the crowded cafeteria, she struggled to swallow her food. Her mind kept drifting to Luke, her mind quickly noting how he was no where to be seen although his friends were sat at their usual table. She knew for a fact that he didn’t get at chance to have breakfast because he slept in; being aware of that, she couldn’t eat in peace without feeling guilty that he wasn’t. Not that it was any of her fault, she reminded herself, yet the thought of him starving somewhere and feeling pissy didn’t really appeal to her. Gradually, culpability washed over her once she began questionning the whole situation, quickly understanding that there was something that bothered him enough to make him act the way he did. How could she not realize it as soon as she saw him? He had never let her suffer from the aftermath of his problems; so him doing that for the first time alarmed her in a way.

A few grumbled curses escaped Luke’s mouth as his stomach grumbled for the upteenth time. He mentally scolded himself for skipping lunch, but he knew that had he attended, he would’ve definitely taken his frustration either on his friends or on some innocent freshmen. And since he had already let it affect (y/n) that morning, he didn’t really want to add another one to that list.

Lying on the grass with closed eyes, Luke only looked up once he felt someone sit next to him. A smiling (y/n) was definitely not what he expected.

“Hey, grumpy neighbour!” she saluted him, earning a weary glance from him.  Why was she being nice? He was sure that she was very pissed last time he saw her. Before he could mutter any words, she handed him a plastic plate. He just then noticed that she was holding one in her hand as well. He looked down at the crap school burger she handed him, yet in his hungry state, it seemed like the best gift ever.

Luke took a huge bite of out the burger, the lump forming in the back of his throat making it harder for him to chew or swallow. He was overwhelmed by waves of emotion; the simple yet meaningful gesture making his heart swell as tears he refused to show stung his tired eyes. He wanted to scream out a thank you to her, he wanted to not only apologize for being a dickhead, but also because he knew just how much she endured for him. It wasn’t fair.

Instead, he diverted the subject once he was done with his food; “I can’t walk you home today, I’m not going home.” He sent her an apologetic look, even though it wasn’t the first time and surely not the last she’d be walking home on her own.

“Do you want me to tell your mom? In case she worries or…” (y/n) trailed off once she saw how Luke bit his lip and turned his face away, the actions declaring that she might have hit a nerve.

“No. Don’t worry though; I’ll be at Calum’s.” His response was simple, limited, brief. He hadn’t really informed Calum yet, but he knew that his house was always welcoming. He didn’t want to stay at Ashton’s to not bother his younger siblings, and quite frankly Michael’s mother scared him shitless.

He saw the look in (y/n)’s eyes; he saw the concern and the uneasiness, he saw her desire to ask him more, he noticed how she held herself back instead of doing as she wished. It wasn’t fair. Luke knew how much of a burden he was, the realisation flooding him with shame; he was conscious of the fact that he continuously drags her into his own issues yet never really tells her anything about it. And he was no doubtedly, exceptionally thankful for her sole presence in his life. She was the blinding sunshine to his rainy days. He didn’t want to leave her hanging without an explication; he didn’t want to cause her any more distress, but he didn’t really know where to start. Where do you begin telling a story with neither beginning nor an ending?

He ran a rough hand through his blond locks, an exasperate sigh leaving his parted lips. “I got held back by the principal this morning.” He confessed, and it was quite puzzling for (y/n). Not in the ‘Oh my god!” way, but rather in the “That’s it?” way. In all honesty, Luke getting in trouble with the principal wasn’t a first, why would it make him that pissed?

“That shithead called my mom in.” he added with a shake on his head, the story slowly becoming clearer to her. Luke carried on, a dark glare prominently showing in his ctystal blues “Some dumbass crashed Coach’s car, and somehow blaming me seemed easier than looking for the one who did it!”

Luke wanted to carry on, tell her how his mother believed that he was responsible for that, how he didn’t even fight to justify himself, how he refused to show his heartbreak as he slowly started to believe that he’d never stop making his mom feel disappointed.

“I don’t believe her though,” (y/n) broke him out of his self-pitying thoughts; her words making him raise a questionning eyebrow at her. Chuckling at the look he was giving her, “I know for a fact that if it were you, you’d proudly take the blame for it! I mean, crashing a car! You’d probably show it off in front of everyone!” Luke finally cracked a smile at her words; she was a gem.

 Having accomplished her goal, (y/n) lightly ruffled his hair with a fond smile, her very instincts ushering her to protect the boy at all costs. She wanted to take away all of the frustration she knew he felt, she wanted to provide the same comfort he provided for her, if not more. But at the moment, she could only feel grateful that, for the first time, Luke had opened up to her in a way she hadn’t expected. Maybe that meant something.

Calum:

“Babe, come on, just a second.” Calum whined like a child, lying on his stomach next to (y/n) on her bed. He had visited her in the unfortunate time she called doing homework, which by default meant she was not getting distracted by him. But it wasn’t just any homework; it was that stupid Litterature paper she had kept postponing until last minute.

So there she was, struggling to get it done as well as prepare for the next exam in that class. She had never hated a class that much, and it was draining her out.

Calum was definitely not helping, his sole presence too much of a distraction for her, his touch and words making her lose concentration. The puppy eyes he kept giving her almost made her give in, his fingers playing with the ends of her hair momentarily making her stop working. “You can’t ignore me forever darling, just take a little break for me?”

This time, he had gone further, lying on top of her papers in order to gain her attention. That last straw finally earning him a reaction; just not the one he had hoped for.

“Fucking hell Calum! You’re being a royal pain right now so cut it!” she hissed at him, eyes closed in rage, not noticing how she was releasing her stress on him. Calum calmly got up from the bed, exiting her room in utter silence.

Trying to get back to work, she was thankful for the new found silence, yet couldn’t think of anything besides the guilt that was filling up her edges. She couldn’t help overthinking about his slience; overall, his whole composure scared her. “Focus!”  She yelled at herself, growing more and more exasperate due to her lack of concentration. She knew that she wouldn’t be able to get any work done, not as long as Calum was mad at her, not as long as she didn’t know where he was.

Hopping off her bed with a thud, she ran out of room determined to chase after him, to apologize for her unfairness. What she didn’t expect was to find him sitting on the couch in the living room, eyes fixed on the TV. Slumping her shoulders in relief, she walked towards him, plopping next to him.

“Hey” she whispered to him, her eyes scanning over his face. No response. (y/n) looked down at her lap, her heart sinking once she didn’t get an answer from him.

“I’m sorry for snapping at you. I’m struggling with homework, and you were distracting me, and I know it’s not an excu-“

“I’m not mad cause you snapped at me.” Calum stopped her rambling, his head whipping around to face her, his expression unreadable.

“Why are you mad then?” she looked up to meet his eyes, a frown etched upon her face. Calum reached out to lace his fingers with hers, his eyes diverting towards their intertwined hands.

“You’re supposed to come to me if something’s bothering you. I know nothing about this whole relationship thing, but I do know that a good boyfriend should do that much.” (y/n)’s heart fluttered at his nervous words, the boy in front of her never ceasing to amaze her.

“Cal, you are a good boyfriend.” She cooed at him, the word ‘boyfriend’ still making her giddy as she spoke it. They were still new to the whole thing, both of them caring deeply about eachother enough to want it to work. “I should’ve told you, I’m sorry” she smiled sheepishly at him, him mimicking her instantly.

“How about I let you study in peace, but once you’re done I get to have your undevided attention?” he bargained, his face leaning in. Dodging his lips and pecking his nose instead, (y/n) nodded her head, chuckling at his adorable pout.

Surely, he had let her work her homework in peace, before dragging her back to the couch in order to watch some random movie he picked.

Michael:

“I worked really hard for that stupid test! It’s not fair for her to grade it that way!” (y/n) sat next to Michael by her locker, she couldn’t stop complaining about the latest test they took. She reeked of disappointment and anger, their English teacher being the subject of her threats. She had worked hard through her endless chifts at the Café and managed to prepare for it despite the amount of schoolwork she was drowning in, so no, getting a C+ wasn’t satisfying enough for her, not when she was aware of her hard work.

Michael rolled his eyes at her, his eyes turning dangerously dark as he faced her. “Oh, for fuck’s sake (y/n)! You messed up a test, you’ll be able to make it up later on so will you stop it with your complaining? It’s been hours!” he blurted out, his hand throwing his backpack over his shoulder as he turned around to leave.

Back at her locker, she was left with her mouth wide open, heart beating against her ribcage in the most painful way ever. Michael. Michael had never said such a thing to her, not after they became friends, not after she opened up to him. True, she has been complaining for a while, but Michael seemed to listen. Besides, he has never really stopped her when she was talking, knowing how that made her feel.

Michael’s mood was making him more aggravated than usual, even the simplest thing managed to get him off. But only upon hearing the shaky breath (y/n) took in had he realized what he had done. How could he have said those things to her? It wasn’t right to make her a victim of his low mood, nor was it acceptable to tell her that when he had witenessed just how hard she worked.

Abrubtly turning on his heels, he turned back towards her choking out his words “Look, I’m sorry. I’m sorry for saying what I did, I honestly didn’t mean it. But my mind’s a bloody mess right now, and things are just not right…” Michael rambled, his eyes betraying the inner hurricane he was trying to supress.

(y/n) gingerly took Michael’s hand in her, offering him a little smile before pulling him towards the exit. But she hadn’t even taken two steps before he abruptly planted his feet on the groud, stopping her from moving. He tugged he back, his eyes silently questionning her. She sighed, moving closer to him; “You’re in a bad mood. Being in school will only make it worse, so… Why don’t we just get out?” she hinted with a sly smile on her face.

“You? Are asking me? To skip?” Michael’s smirk grew wider, the thought her skipping with him making him a little surprised since she had declined the offer every single time he mentionned it. (y/n) hummed in response, her hands tugging his, urging him to start moving.

And he almost does. He almost allows himself to follow her until his mind brings up the one thing he was scared shitless of; he didn’t to add her to the list of things his touch ruined.

Admittedly, he had asked her himself to do so before, but having her actually say yes to the offer wasn’t as satisfying as he thought it’d be; he wouldn’t bare the thought of corrupting her, fearing that he’d turn her into the Fuckup he somehow convinced himself he was.

“Wait! Wait… Why are you doing this? You never skip; I’m not letting you skip because of me.” Michael did not however miss the exaggerated eye roll he received from her “Mikey, you’re not making me do anything. I want to do it, ok? So are you coming or what?” she raised a daring eyebrow at Michael, walking backwards away from him, a tempting smile on her face. Chuckling to himself, Michael finally obliged.

“You don’t even know what’s wrong.” Michael broke the silence they were walking in, the question he wanted to ask her ever since they walked out of school coming out.

(y/n) shrugged, her teeth biting down on her lower lip, “I don’t. But I can guess.” She mumbled, second guessing whether she should’ve said it. Did she want him to know that she noticed? That she noticed more things about him than she let out on.

Michael was quiet for a while, wondering if it’s safe to open up the already ajar door. “What might that guess be?” he spoke at last, taking a seat at a bench. Joining him, (y/n) looked at him cautiously before answering him.

“Trouble at home?” Michael let out a breathy laugh, but to her ears it sounded like his loudest cry. “It’s suffocating.” Were the only words he spoke, his eyes never looking up from the ground.

As soon as he spoke, he felt (y/n) drape her arms around him, her head resting on his shoulder. It was the only consolation she was able to offer him at the moment, her previous doubts coming to life. And maybe that wasn’t enough to solve all of his problems or fix a thing, but it was enough to make him feel better; her hand tightly clasping his anchoring him, her arms around him sheltering him in a way.

Ashton:

Running a hand roughly through her hair, (y/n) groaned at the agonizing headache she was trying so hard to forget about. Chemistry class was dragging slower than usual, the minutes left til the bell rang getting longer and longer. She silently cursed at the drumming on the table, caused by none other than her lab partner.

“Ash, can you stop please?” she asked him through closed eyes, her head resting against her forearm. Humming as a response, Ashton’s hands stopped banging on the table only to start a couple minutes after on his thighs. Sighing loudly for him to hear, (y/n) put her hand on top of his, silently shushing him. She felt bad for stopping him, especially since she knew how boring the class was, but the pounding in her head was only getting worse due to the noise.

Just as the turbulence decreased, making her pain more bearable, the drumming started once more. Ashton wasn’t even aware of his fingers mindlessly tapping the table to the beat stuck in his head, not until his partner lifted her head up with so much force he was startled.

“Would you freaking stop that! I asked you twice already, so please! Knock it off.” Ashton only then noticed the dark half moons resting beneath her eyes. The silent following her outburst was getting suffocating, not only because Ashton had instantly diverted his eyes from her, but also because it alarmed her that the whole class had seen it. Everyone was holding their breath, waiting for the idiotic girl to receive what she was looking for by playing with the big bad wolf. With eyes wide open, they all followed the scene, curiosity bubbling inside. How could she be brave enough to yell at him? Wasn’t she aware of who he was? Maybe they all knew that she was different than the rest, that she was an exception for him, that they’d never witness the downfall they were all waiting for; nonetheless, they still waited.

“Ashton, please stop!” (y/n) tried to catch up with the long-legged giant. The remorse becoming insupportable as he didn’t even bother her during class as he used to, he didn’t even attempt to crack any jokes. She chased after him right after they exited the classroom, knowing that an explanation was needed.

“Asht-“ She stopped as she almost bumped into him due to his abrupt stop. Exhaling a finally, she eyed him as he stood cross-armed in front of her as if asking her what?

“I’m sorry for yelling at you during class, I have this terrible headache and you were being noisy and I just couldn-“ (y/n) closed her mouth once she felt Ashton’s cold hand making contact with her forehead, a sigh leaving his lips.

“You also have a fever.” He concluded, stepping back to examine her face furthermore. “Why did you come to school in this state? And why didn’t you tell me that you were sick?” he scolded her, his hazel eyes however showing the utmost concern.

“Am I suppost to tell you when I’m feeling sick?” she chuckled lightly, the buzzing in her head still not dissipating.

Ashton however did not laugh, still feeling uneasy about her state, “Yes! You’re supposed to tell me so I don’t end up being a complete dumbass and make it worse!” (y/n) instanly smiled at his words, his obvious concern for her making her feel blissful.

Wrapping her arms around his torso, (y/n) rested her head against his chest, enjoying the warmth and the security his embrace provided, giving her something else to think about beside her pounding head.

“Come on, baby girl, I’ll drive you home.” Ashton mumbled into her ear, mindful to keep his voice as low as possible, not wanting to aggravate her state even more.

� ��"T� �

In the Quiet

Sometimes they just watch each other, exchanging small smiles and unspoken statements, and it’s just desperately, beautifully, blissfully quiet. He can’t remember the last time he had that. She doesn’t think she ever has.


i. The team calls him Barnes and they skitter around him with weary smiles and tense shoulders. The team calls him Barnes and it feels just as unfamiliar and impersonal and harsh as Soldier - a gruff bark buried somewhere in the mess of his memories, an accented greeting of good morning and a steady reply

Good morning, soldier

Ready to comply

Soldier

Soldier

Most of the time, Soldier feels more comfortable than Barnes, but he doesn’t want to say so - that would just disappoint Steve, and Steve tries so hard. He reads newspapers with him and calls him Bucky and tries to remind him of their childhood but it all washes over him, like a dream he can’t remember upon waking. 

Wanda, though. The girl. The pale shadow in the corner. 

She looks at him and she knows.

She looks at him and sees right through him, and he wonders how that could be when he doesn’t even know who he is. 

ii. He catches her eye in the field one day. That’s really the extent of their overall interaction. Of course, he’s seen her around the compound, but Wanda’s quiet like him, and they don’t really let her go out, whereas he prefers to walk around New York City, aimlessly, as if trying to find something, anything, to give him some kind of meaning. 

But when they do cross each other, they catalogue looks, exchange glances, watch each other with this semblance of earnestness that neither knew they were still capable of. Sometimes they’ll smile once in a while, but he always feels awkward doing it: he doesn’t remember how these conversations - or lack of thereof - are supposed to go. Bucky Barnes was all manners and boyish charm, but then, he’s not really Bucky Barnes anymore. 

He knows about her, her power, her abilities, but he can’t say he’s ever felt her sifting through his mind. Of course, he probably wouldn’t know - he knows so little about not only her but the extent of her powers. She could have scrambled his brains and he’d never know the difference, but her eyes are kind and her scarlet dances softly and somehow he doubts she would ever have intruded as such. Besides, there seems somehow more than just knowingness whenever he turns to her and catches her already looking. Sympathy. No. Empathy. Understanding

So he catches her eye in the field one day, and she’s standing on a building out of the action as she usually is, manipulating from the outskirts. She’s watching him with something like curiosity.  

He turns his gaze away. 


iii. She finds him hunched over a bowl of cereal at three in the morning one night.

Can’t sleep?  She asks lightly, sliding opposite him, and he shakes his head. He doesn’t elaborate more than that, but she recognizes that look in his eyes, as she has for the past few months. It’s a look she’s seen so many times in her own reflection. Worn, darkened, stamped with black and blue. 

They sit there in comfortable silence, until finally, Wanda, do you ever go inside my head?

Not if I can help it. I try not to intrude with anyone. It’s just… some thoughts are louder than others. And yours… they howl. 

He sucks in a breath sharply, thinks about this a few seconds. I don’t mind if you look. If it’s easier to listen in than… block it out. You can. I just…  He chuckles dryly. My memories scare me. I wouldn’t wish to inflict them upon anyone. It might… it’s not… I don’t sleep, It’s… I can’t…  it’s so dark in there and I don’t know if maybe you’re right to not want to… 

She smiles sadly, Do not think me frail, Sergeant Barnes. I grew up in a third world country ripped apart by civil war, you forget, and he swallows hard. The Winter Soldier was in Sokovia, and he remembers. He remembers everything. And Sokovia was probably the most brutal, violent place he’d ever seen. A fragment flashes through his brains of small children running through the wartorn ghettos, scavenging and begging with wide, sunken eyes, offering anything for a scrap of food. Work. Possessions. Their bodies. He feels ill to think that was how Wanda grew up. He feels ill to think of her as a HYDRA pet, just like him. He notices how her hands shake, the violence of the tremors pulsing out tiny strands of scarlet. He lays his arm out on the table - the one of flesh - so they she may see how they too tremble. 

She is quiet a moment before continuing. It’s all mostly images, you know, dreamscapes. Not exact thoughts or memories or… I’m still working on that. I’m not… it’s still so new to me. I don’t know how to do that yet. I’m… I’m never in control. They’re right, what they all say about me, out there. I’m unstable.

She looks so small right then it stirs something inside him he doesn’t recognize, this fierce, protective instinct that feels so foreign to him that his eyes just fix on her, searching. Of course he knows she’s beautiful, objectively. Maybe she was the type of girl he would have once asked on a date. But that was another lifetime.

Why are you looking at me like that?  She mumbles, and he reminds himself to look away. It’s rude to stare, a woman’s voice echoes from the shadows of his mind. His mother, maybe. No. Bucky Barnes’ mother.

Nothing. I just… know what you mean. To feel like that. Uh. Unstable. 

Her mouth twitches. Yes. I suppose you do.

iv. They mirror each other almost unconsciously. He speaks softly, as she does. She walks with her shoulders hunched, as he does. They sit beside each other, perfectly still, only moving when the other does. He starts spending more time in the compound, feeling a little more tethered. He enjoys her company. Sometimes they sit in silence, and sometimes he tells knock knock jokes and sometimes she reads him her favorite poets and sometimes, when he feels himself slipping into old protocol, she’ll be awake and join him as he patrols the tower, checks for bugs, cleans the guns. The Winter Soldier has no commands, after all.
Sometimes they just watch each other, exchanging small smiles and unspoken statements, and it’s just desperately, beautifully, blissfully quiet. He can’t remember the last time he had that. She doesn’t think she ever has.


v. Steve teased him about it once, the strange tie they shared, the way they moved in perfect synchrony, accompanied one another everywhere, sat shoulder to shoulder, two souls out of time. He shakes his head, says they’re just friends, but the word feels wrong in his mouth. Friend. It didn’t fit. She wasn’t his friend.She wasn’t exactly more, she wasn’t exactly less, but she… she looked a lot like forgiveness. He could use some help with that.

Steve didn’t bring it up again, and he didn’t really think about it again. Friends, more than friends, not friends… the two of them didn’t fit into such moulds. They just…. were.


vi. Their late night conversations are almost routine, and she’s surprised to find him one day lying on the couch, asleep, watching an old black and white film. She watches him, filled with something almost joyful to see him, calm, features unlined and unstrained and peaceful and it’s so rare and so vulnerable that she almost wants to cry, but then he starts to twitch and shake and quiver, his hands curling into fists and she wakes him, shaking him. It’s not real. None of it is real. It’s not real. 

His eyes widen, his whole body poised for attack. It is. It is all real. 

No. No. You’re safe. You are safe here. You are safe. They don’t own you anymore.

He is quiet. Who are you? 

She grasps his hand tightly. It takes him about an hour to come back fully, fragments reappearing fuzzily and slowly, but when it’s all still just a disjointed puzzle he can’t put together, all he knows is this girl who is all sincerity and softness and slim wrists, eyes filled with such concern, speaking as much as they see. Wanda, he says eventually.

Bucky, she echoes. 

I’m not him. Bucky Barnes. 

I know. 

He was a hero. 

Yes.

I can’t be.

I know. 

Silence.

In the end, it is just a name. You may choose whichever one you wish. You do not have to be the Bucky Barnes to just be… Bucky.

Yes, he relents. He likes the way she says it. She says it without expectation. She says it like it’s a gift she has given him. She says it like he deserves a name, one that does not objectify him.

They remain quiet a little while longer, before she glances up, searching his face. He understands what she’s saying. He doesn’t object.

So she slips into his mind.

Wanda sees everything. She sees it all, in half-cast shadows and nightmarish abstractions of his mind. She sees cruelty in labcoats, heavy chains and blood, maniacal smiles and sharp teeth and pain, just pain, searing and burning and neverending and the tiny, broken animal, wounded and crying and reaching for a light, any light, any relief, make it end please god make it stop make it stop, and faces, so many faces, faces of all the people he has killed screaming and screaming and Bucky keeps shrinking and shrinking and it’s all a mess, it doesn’t make sense, and Wanda’s trying so hard to tame them, make them go away, but she can’t. She’s not there yet. She relents, come back to herself, unaware that she’s left her fingerprints on every memory, every corner of his mind, every stone she has thus far turned over.

Shame colours his cheeks. She doesn’t say anything.

Sleep takes them both eventually. The nightmares come, scalpels and orders and electricity for him and bombs and gunfire and corpses for her, but there is something new in each of their dreams – something in their subconscious, an unseen figure, standing watchful and calm, a guardian. Lithe and graceful and kind for him and sturdy and hunched and tentative for her.  
They lie, side by side, in the light of the black and white film, not touching except for the tips of their fingers.

When the sun comes up, they’re both covered in sweat, and they’re both shaking and they’re both terrified of having to face another day carrying around what they carry. But she’s next to him and he’s next to her and they understand and he asks her what she wants for breakfast.


vii. She watches from overhead, as another Winter Soldier grabs Bucky, twisting him and crushing him into the ground, over and over and over and spitting in words in a language she doesn’t recognize, but she’s overcome by such ferocity and fear of losing him and fear of anyone hurting him any more than he’s already been hurt that she finds herself surging forward, through the city and through the people and the rest of the team and she’s rolling the scarlet between her palms, pulling it and tearing as the Winter Soldier, suspended above ground, screeches in pain as she rips the very limbs from his body.

Go, he splutters, rubbing the blood and spit from his mouth. Get out of here. Get out of here now.

But he squeezes her hand roughly, eyes burning. 


viii. She puts on Billie Holliday one night after dinner, and there are noises of complaint and objection but he just sits in silence, and something tight and sad twinges in his chest at the familiar croon, the trumpets, and when everyone leaves he says flatly I used to dance to this song. She looks at him, even if he doesn’t meet her eyes, Is that an invitation? It wasn’t - but his lips twinge slightly and he makes his way to her and takes her hand – such a familiar gesture to them both – and takes her in his arms. He’s not sure he remember how to dance and she never has, so they just hold each other, swaying gently.


ix. He loves her. He loves the way she tilts her head, he loves her self-conscious snark and the way she pulls on her sleeves, her terrible guitar playing and the way she understands. Everything about her is hesitant and gentle, her laugh is just like windchimes and he wishes she’d do it more often, and sometimes she floats away and disconnects from reality and she’s so weird and she’s so thrilling and he’s so in love with her and he’s probably always known. He just didn’t realize it until now. It’s not that he hides it from her – but she’s his favorite thing about himself and he doesn’t want to taint it by all the years had stolen from him. He doesn’t tell her.


x. She knocks on the door twice at the sound of the first thump. Bucky? There’s merely a groan in response, and she feels the pull in her chest and pushes the door open tentatively. He’s in the corner, curled up with his head in his hands, rocking back and forth mumbling incoherently too fast in too many languages. His head snaps around, eyes wild and desperate and darkened, but there’s a flash of recognition and he chokes out get out of here, girl but she remains planted. Every instinct within her lurches, telling her to run, get out, he doesn’t know her really, and she’s afraid. She’s so afraid, afraid like she was all those years ago in her apartment with her brother waiting to die, waiting for the bomb reading Stark Industries to blow up and kill them. She was waiting for it to explode. And she is waiting for Bucky to explode. A time-bomb.

She sits next to him as he trembles. He keeps telling her to leave, begging her, and at some point he starts spluttering the same sound over and over, the same sound and she can’t make it out but it gets louder and louder and she realizes he’s saying wandawandawandawandawanda and he’s crying and she’s crying and she reaches out to touch him but he can’t stop flinching and she lets herself in his head, pushes through the thorns and glass and barbed wire, all the faces of the dead and the living and the cruel all rushing towards him, replays all the people he killed over and over again, and she tries to take some of the burden, tries to change it, but again, she can’t. She never can.

The tremors stop eventually.

You don’t have to go in my head, Wanda, he tells her. He can feel her when she’s there now. I know it makes you sad.

She’s quiet for a moment. I’m sorry.

I don’t mind. But you carry around so much pain with you already, I don’t need you to carry mine.

I can’t help it. Even if I didn’t, I still carry your pain, she tells him pointedly. As you carry mine.

He grunts in agreement.

But, she begins, tears springing to her eyes, What I meant was… I’m sorry I can never fix it.


xi. They are just blood and bones and shrapnel, having used the remaining strength in their battered bodies to save each other one last time. The sky splinters through the cloud of dust, and he clasps her hand with such fierceness it almost makes the pain from her wounds go away. Almost. He tries to splutter some kind of goodbye, something that will have made this all mean something, how it had been she, the girl with the trembling hands that contained so much power, she, the patient gardener and protector of dreams, she who had been the only one to have seen his ruined, bloody heart and still look at it the same way in the morning. But the air is getting thicker and the blood in his throat holds him choked and all that comes out are a series of desperate, indecipherable whimpers. Bombs are falling. There’s fire everywhere. And she’s crying and telling him “I was practising. I was practising. I was going to get better with my powers… I was going to try and take away the nightmares… I…. I just wanted for you… to sleep.” And then he’s crying, because maybe they are all just blood and bones and shrapnel and maybe none of this meant anything, they never meant anything, and right before she goes under he says, “I love you,” and everything goes quiet, the same kind of quiet that being near him always bought her, that blissful, impossible silence that he never got to hold onto until her, and it’s precious and it’s kind and it’s finite and she turns her head and says, “I know,” and the last thing Bucky hears before the blackness comes is Wanda’s voice over and over, “Whatever comes next, whatever happens, I love you. I love you. I love you, I love you, I lov-”

Bucky had never been particularly religious - not even before the war. Once Hydra had turned him into the Winter Soldier he was sure that something like a god couldn’t exist.

He didn’t think that he was an especially good person, but even someone like him didn’t deserve being turned into a killer – for the sake of himself and the many lives he took.

No there wasn’t a single being watching out for him. He was sure of it after having prayed for help for years.

Heaven was just a dream and nothing more.

It took him months to slowly become Bucky Barnes again with Steve’s help. When Steve mentioned an agent coming back from an 8-months mission he didn’t really care. He still tried to stay away from most people except Steve and he didn’t expect it to be different with this one agent. What Steve failed to mention was who or what this agent was exactly.

Three days later Bucky entered the kitchen after his morning training when Tony’s voice reached his ears.

“Good to have you back, Feathers.”

“I told you not to call me that, Anthony.” A soft voice answered

After taking a bottle of water from the fridge Bucky slowly made his way into the living area.

Tony had his arm slung around the shoulders of a young woman. Feeling slightly awkward staring at them Bucky cleared his throat. Tony and the woman turned around, facing him. While Tony was smirking the woman innocently blinked up at him.

“Hey Snowflake, you haven’t met Feathers here yet, right?” Tony asked, lazily gesturing from her to Bucky, Tony added, “Feathers Snowflake. Snowflake Feathers.”

Bucky glared at Tony, but the woman already had stepped forward, offering her hand to him. Just now he noticed how tiny she is. Carefully he took her delicate hand in his, squeezing it softly.

“Bucky,” he mumbled, dropping her hand again.

“I’m y/n, an angel of the lord.”

“Angels don’t exist”, was Bucky’s immediate response.

She didn’t seem offended, only tilting her head a fraction. “They do.”

Tony snorted, “I didn’t believe it at first, but she’s telling the truth. Y/n is our own little Avengers angel.”

That couldn’t be true. Angels don’t exist. Not in this world.

“H-How?” Bucky stuttered. The scratchy sound of his voice surprising himself.

Her innocent expression changed into something he couldn’t pinpoint.

“I fell.”

Bucky raised an eyebrow and she added, “from heaven.”


Confused you looked after the man who introduced himself as Bucky after he fled from the room. Tony placed a hand on your shoulder, giving it a comforting squeeze.

“Did I upset him?” You asked Tony, wondering if you messed up some human custom again.

“Don’t worry about it, y/n. You just told him that you’re an angel, it’s not easy for most of us to accept something like that.”

You dropped your head a bit, but Tony was quick to add, “Hey, you wanna check out my new suit?”

No one saw Bucky while the rest of the team came to welcome you back. You glanced around the room a few times for Bucky, but decided to give him time. Maybe you would be able to talk to him the next day after everything calmed down a bit.


After everyone had gone to bed and Bucky still didn’t show up Steve went looking for him. After asking JARVIS about Bucky’s whereabouts Steve found him in one of the training rooms.

Bucky looked up when he heard the door open, but shifted his focus back on the punching bag once he realized that it only was Steve.

“Why haven’t you come up, Bucky? I wanted to introduce y/n to you.” Steve asked.

“You didn’t tell me that she’s an angel! A real fucking angel!” The punching bag swung violently after an especially hard hit from Bucky, his breathing growing more erratic.

“I don’t get why you’re getting so worked up about it. Sure, it’s surprising, but doesn’t it give you hope that there’s a heaven up there?”

Bucky let out a humorless laugh, “As if. If there’s a god he must fucking hate me.”

Steve shook his head, “It’s not that easy Bucky. At least give y/n a chance…”

Bucky grunted when he threw another punch, “Maybe. I just don’t know what I’m supposed to think. I don’t even know what to say to her. She’s an angel while I’m a killer. We couldn’t be more different.”

           First time he saw her, he thought she was the most beautiful woman ever walking this earth. Her polka-dots sundress was moving with her every time she scribbled something on the black board and her Y/H/C hair were tied into a ponytail that jumped happily with each movement. Her beautiful smart eyes were looking at the classroom full of mesmerised children with a smile that could light up even the darkest of nights.

             She was beautiful. He didn’t really know what she was teaching them, but she did it with such passion, that everyone was listening. Not one child was misbehaving, nobody was talking, all of them were drinking the words spilling from her mouth.

             When he and Joe entered the classroom quietly, none of the kids looked in their direction. She momentarily looked at them, gracing them with polite smile and finished the thought.

‘Remember to think about how we could improve the Flash’s speed! We’ll talk about it on the next lesson, so I expect all of you to have some input okay?’ she said and to him her voice was a the  most wonderful sound.

             He wouldn’t mind listening to her voice always. He wasn’t the only one. Children nodded, taking their bag packs and leaving saying their goodbyes to Miss Y/L/N. After the classroom was empty, she turned to them and Barry could finally see her whole. If he thought she was beautiful from the window, now he knew that for certain.

‘Joe!’ Her eyes lightened up and she approached them, her pony tail bouncing with each step. ‘And Barry, I suppose.’

             She extended her perfectly manicured hand in his direction. He was staring at it for few seconds, thinking about that perfection and then took it, realising how silly he was being. Her hand was soft and he blushed only by looking at her face.

‘How did you know?’ he asked and mentally kicked himself.

‘I used to work in your lab, when you were in a coma’ she said, smiling lightly not letting go of his hand ‘And Joe here told me all about his boy’

             Barry blushed violently once again and she laughed. Joe told him about a girl that was subbing for him as a lab rat before, but he never expected her to be so pretty.

‘I’m Y/N, by the way’ she said ‘What brings you gentlemen to my classroom?’


             Second time he saw her; she was getting coffee from Jitters. Her hair was down and she had a different sundress, this time floral one. She was making small talk with the barista, laughing at something she said. He forgot that her laugh sounded like bells.

             She was waiting for a coffee, still smiling when she saw him. Her eyes flashed with excitement and she waved at him.

‘Barry Allen! Fancy meeting you here’ she said ‘How is your case going?’

‘It’s actually solved’ he said, returning a smile. ‘How is helping the Flash with his speed going?’

             He wanted to ask her out. He didn’t really know why, but she seemed so pure and kind. And the way she treated her children, the passion in her eyes when she was teaching… It called to him. He wanted to be a part of her life so badly and he still didn’t know why. She had this magnetism in her that just spoke to him.

‘Well, the kids had some quite good ideas’ she laughed ‘But I thought that him running naked wasn’t the best option.’

             Despite himself, he blushed again. He was doing that a lot when it came to her. He wasn’t sure why.

‘Anyway, I have a class in twenty minutes and I need to get those kids excited about science.’ She said looking at him.

             He saw hesitation in her eyes and after a moment she looked like she made up her mind. She reached into her purse taking out a small card with something printed on it. She passed it to him with a smile.

‘You can use it, if you want to’ she said, turned around and left Jitters.

             Barry looked after her for few seconds and then looked at the small cardboard with the shining letters.

             Y/N Y/L/N, Physicist and her number underneath. He smiled to himself and had to contain his need to dance.

*

             Third time he saw her, was when he was picking her up for their first date. Her hair was up, and she was wearing green evening dress. She smiled at him in his suit and took his inviting arm.

             For the whole evening there was no silence and not once the smile crawled from his face. He felt his heart expanding whenever she would tell him a joke or small secret about herself. He found out that she always had passion for science, but at the same time she wanted to give back to society. To school future generations, excite people about science, since so many of them found it boring or difficult.

‘That’s why I decided to go with the Flash’ she said, sipping the wine ‘He’s a hero. He is their hero. So I used him to explain speed, velocity and acceleration… You wouldn’t believe how excited they were about learning.’

             Barry looked her in the eyes and saw how happy and safe her life was. What was he doing? Why did he invite her for a date? Why did he want to destroy that girls’ life by simply being in it?

‘Is something wrong?’ she asked, laying her hand on top of his ‘I’m sorry, I know I’m rambling. I just get really excited…’

‘No! No, Y/N, it’s not your fault I just got lost in my thoughts’ he said, noticing how warm her hand was ‘But yeah, I agree with you. I mean my science teachers are the reason why I’m doing what I’m doing today. It’s amazing what they can do. They are really underappreciated, but the truth is teachers are the real heroes. They shape the way we think. They shape our direction… And I think that’s amazing.’

             Her cheeks reddened at his words. They laughed and talked deep into the evening until the waitress told them that the restaurant was closing. They left hand in hand, not letting each other go. Barry’s thoughts gone from his mind as quickly as they appeared.

             Once they found themselves outside her apartment, he thought he didn’t want her to go. He realised that he didn’t want the night to end. It was so perfect.

‘I had fun tonight, Barry’ she whispered, looking up into his eyes ‘I’m glad we did this.’

             He nodded looking into her wonderful eyes and feeling the need to do just one more thing before they parted ways. Their lips connected, softly, shyly at the beginning. He deepened the kiss, feeling her hands connecting at the nape of his neck pushing him closer. His arms enveloped her, bringing her body closer to his. Few seconds later they had to come up for air, their foreheads touching.

‘I did too, Y/N’ he whispered, not wanting to let her go.

*

             The next few times he saw her; he was being a creepy stalker. He visited her in his flash suit, not really wanting her to notice him. He wanted to make sure she was safe and happy.

             Each time she would take out her phone and frown at the lack of messages from him, would bring back the guilt in his stomach, but he knew that it was for the best. He knew what being the hero meant and he decided to not put anyone else at risk. She was lovely, hell, she was perfect, as Iris would describe her, she came from the rare breed of adorable nerds.

             He felt so happy in her presence and he knew she felt happy in his. He just couldn’t bring himself to be selfish enough to risk her life. He was pretty sure, he was falling for her after just three meetings and he wanted to save his and her heart from even more pain.

             Joe saw right through him. He noticed that one night he came back all happy and then his mood was slowly deteriorating. He tried putting some sense into Barry’s head, but to no avail. That’s when he decided to take matters into his own hands.

             Joe saw the interest in their eyes the moment they’ve met. Once Barry told him about their date, he started to ship them. He wanted his son to be happy and of course he knew that Y/N was perfect for him. Not to mention that he orchestrated their meeting perfectly. He could’ve taken anyone to go and meet her the first time, but he decided to take Barry. He was so frustrated once Barry decided to go and mess everything up.

             He brought the phone to his ear and called Y/N.

*

             The day was grey and Barry was tired. He looked for the hundredth time at the file and still couldn’t come up with a correlation between two cases he was working on. He was getting frustrated and that was not a good thing. It was his job, god damn it. And he was supposed to be good at it. Before he could throw some stuff around, a shy knock brought him back from his self-pity party.

             He looked up to see Y/N, her smile tight, never reaching her eyes. She looked amazing in green sweater, with the white collar from shirt sticking out from underneath it and black jeans.

‘Um, hi…’ she said her voice cold ‘Joe said that you could use some help with that.’

             Barry looked at her and cursed Joe in his mind. He knew well what he was trying to do and he didn’t like it one bit. Well, maybe he did. He was so happy to see her, his heart jumping in his chest. He wanted to take her into his arms and never let go.

‘Yeah…’ he said, his hand awkwardly massaging the back of his head ‘I can’t find the correlation between those two crime scenes…’

             She approached him slowly, trying to avoid any eye contact. She seemed embarrassed and that hurt him. He didn’t want to make her feel that way. She probably thought that he didn’t want to be with her, because of something she did. But that wasn’t the case, that could never be the case. She was perfect, she was perfect for him and it fucking hurt him that he couldn’t be with her.

             She took the file, sitting in the chair next to him. Her eyes running through the sentences, her brows furrowing in concentration. She was quiet for few minutes, drawing shapes on the piece of paper. He admired how beautiful she looked when she was trying to find the solution. He lived for the small sounds she made when she was thinking and he fallen hard the moment her lips turned up in the triumphant smile.

             She explained the solution slowly, trying to contain excitement in her voice. She was so proud of herself and that made him smile. He was amazed at how quickly she managed to find the correlation and he couldn’t contain the proudness he felt.

‘You are a genius!’ he said taking her hand.

             Before he could think about what he was doing, she took her hand from his, frowning and standing up. He realised how many mixed signals he was sending her way and felt stupid.

‘Sometimes you just need a pair of fresh eyes’ she said quietly, turning to go.  

‘Y/N…’ he started.

             She turned around sending him a sad smile. His heart broke right then.

‘I get it, Barry’ she said quietly ‘I just got more invested than you did.’

             She turned and left his lab, taking his heart along with her.


*

             He thought about her non-stop after their short conversation in the lab. He couldn’t get her out of his head and realised that he really didn’t want to. Y/N was a girl he wanted to be with. He wanted to make her laugh, listen to her rambles and share his fun science facts with. He wanted to take her out for dinners and coffees and eventually wake up next to her. He knew he was being selfish but he decided to do everything in his power to get her back. That decision took too much time to make and he had to somehow undo what he’s done for the past weeks.

             He was on his way to talk to her when he saw her in the dark alley. Her yellow dress stained by dirt and torn, her eyes wide in shock and tears flowing down her cheeks. She stood over a man who was cursing and crying out. Another man was standing few feet away, looking at her with murder written all over his face. He grabbed her arm violently and tried to bring her closer to him. She was fighting trying to get him off of her, shouting.

             Barry without a second thought ran to him at a full speed and punched him in the face knocking him down. Y/N looked at him with wide eyes, understanding flashing in them.

‘Barry…’ she started, not really knowing what to say.

‘Give me two seconds’ he whispered, taking both offenders to jail.

             He came back and looked at her, trying to find any signs of injury. She was okay. He thanked all the beings he knew and brought her into his arms. She grabbed him with all the strength she had in her and he felt her shuddering.

             He picked her up, bridal style and ran her to her home. He sat her down on her couch and sat next to her. Without a second thought, she crawled on his lap and cuddled into him. He felt her tears staining his shirt and the anger he felt towards two men was indescribable. His arms enveloped her tightly and he let her cry.

‘You are safe now’ he whispered into her hair ‘Nobody will ever hurt you again, I promise.’

             After few minutes she passed out, all adrenaline leaving her body. She was tired and beaten up. He laid a small kiss on her forehead letting her rest.

             Now she knew his secret. And it was already too late for his heart.


*

‘Hello, sunshine’ she said, her voice lightening up his day already.

             She laid a small kiss on his lips and sat down opposite him in Jitters. They were dating for few weeks now and they couldn’t be happier. After their encounter that night, Y/N finding out his secret and him saving her, they were inseparable. They were going out on dates, spending nights together and overall being the happiest couple around. She met his friends in S.T.A.R labs and was slowly becoming an essential addition to their team.

             She was using her degree to help Barry and was quickly figuring out the speed equation, which would eventually help him go even faster.

‘Hi, Y/N’ he said, admiring her, no longer from a distance.

             He realised that he could be happy. He could be selfish for once in his life and just be happy. And Y/N was the one thing that did just that. She was a sunshine on the cloudiest day always smiling and always bringing him up. When he thought about her, he didn’t see her as a weakness, he saw her as his strength. His will to fight and do good. For her and for all the people of the Central City.

             Barry Allen was happy and there was nobody that could take that away from him.

Requests are still opeeen! My Masterlist. And Prompts

So there I was rewatching my Kabby playlist on YouTube (because I miss them and yeah) and I realized MARCUS CLEARLY HAS HIS HAND OVER ABBY’S

AM I THE ONLY ONE THAT NEVER REALIZED/CAUGHT ON TO THE FACT THAT HE IS REASSURING HER AS THEY PLUMMET TO EARTH?!

WHAT THE HELL HAPPENS BETWEEN THE TIME THAT HE FINDS HER IN THAT AIRLOCK AND THESE SCENES HOW DID THEY GET HERE

HIS HAND. ON HER HAND. I NEED TO KNOW EVERYTHING.

Six times

Here is a prompt fill for pinklipstick-and-greenarrows it was a ton of fun to fill! Hope you enjoy it hun!

A quick summary of the prompt is “I recently read an article, that stated that the average person has sex in a car six times in their life. What if Felicity also read this article? What if she decided to jump Oliver in the car because of this article several times, and he finally figures out what is going on?

Six Times

Work Text:

They had been together for 3 months, 8 days, and 6 hours. Not that she was keeping track or anything. After all that they had been through to get to this point, it was definitely worth the wait. Everything was amazing, aside from the usual disagreements between the pair, but hey, on the bright side, they could now work out their frustrations with each other with amazing sex. That was always a plus. And Oliver always made up for his daily, yes his daily, mistakes, with Felicity by showing her exactly how sorry he was.

Although, something still bothered Felicity. She would never tell Oliver of her insecurities with him, but she knew of his history with women. Hell the whole world knew of his history. And while hers wasn’t innocent, by any means, her experience wasn’t nearly as vast as his. She always has this nagging doubt in the back of her mind of whether or not she would be enough to keep his interest for the long haul.

Then she saw it. That stupid article, from that stupid magazine. Now she has this blasted image that won’t leave her over-analyzing brain alone! It stated that the average person has sex in a car at least six times in their life. Six! What the hell was that? She has never even done that once! I mean there was that one make-out session with Scott in his old Pinto back in high school, but she ended up getting her shirt tangled up in his stick. And by stick, she means his stick shift. Then upon trying to untangle herself, she proceeded to headbutt him in the nose. He had then angrily called her a nerd and kicked her out of his car. She shuddered at the memory. That had been all kinds of awkward.

So back to the issue at hand, this damn article. Well, she was just going to have to do something about this. The problem was figuring out the logistics of it all. He was always riding that blasted motorcycle, and as hot as THAT particular thought was, it didn’t exactly count, did it? And her car, well as Oliver liked to call it "her clown car”, wasn’t exactly suited for the kind of activities she was hoping for. So she came up with a plan.

The next evening

“You ready to go?” Oliver asks her softly while he gently places a hand on her shoulder. He knows she has been preoccupied all day, but she won’t tell him what’s going on. It almost seems like she’s nervous about something.

“Umm, yeah, just let me shut everything down.” She says to him, turning in her chair to face her computers again.

“Hey Oliver? Why don’t you leave your bike here tonight and ride with me? That is, if you were planning on staying at my place, which you don’t have to. I wasn’t assuming that you were or anything. I mean if you need some time alone or something, I totally understand. I don’t want to…”

“Felicity” Oliver softly interrupted her rant. “What’s going on with you? Of course I want to be with you tonight. What would make you think otherwise? Is everything okay?” Oliver is beginning to worry now.

“Yeah, sure, everything’s fine! Why wouldn’t it be? So do you want to ride with me tonight? I mean I know you hate my car, but it’s actually in the shop this week. I have a rental. Something about a busted radiator. They said it will take a week or so to fix, and the rental car is much roomier, so I just figured that maybe we could ride together?”

Oliver smiled at her. He could tell, that for whatever reason, this was important to her, so he agreed with a slight nod of his head.

“I’ll go get my things while you finish up here.” He told her.

As they made their way to the sleek, black, four door, Audi sedan, Oliver let out a low whistle as Felicity tossed him the keys.

“Now this is a car I can fit in.” He told her, looking at her over the roof with a smug grin in place.

“Are you making a dig at my car? Because if you are mister, I will have you know that I happen to love my car!”

“I wouldn’t dream of making fun of your shoebox Felicity” Oliver chuckled

Feliciry climbed into the pass anger seat. “Ugh! That’s not funny Oliver!” She replied exasperatedly, as she leaned over and mock punched him. “Keep that up and I won’t show you exactly what I planned on doing to you in this very car.” She tells him with all of the confidence she can muster.

“Oh? And pre-tell, what exactly are these plans miss Smoak?” He asks her, trying to play along.

Felicity then catches him by surprise as she reaches between the console and grabs the lapels of his jacket bringing his lips crashing into hers. She kisses him with a force that he has never felt from her before and he would be lying if he said it didn’t both shock and completely turn him on. As his jeans were beginning to get uncomfortably tight, Felicity begins to climb over the console to attempt to straddle his lap.

“Felicity” he whispers to her. She just groans and takes it as an invitation to continue her ministrations. “Mmm Felicity, wait.” He gently puts his hands on her waist and holds her off of him, mid climb. “If we don’t stop now, I won’t be able to.” Oliver tells her.

“That’s kind of the point Oliver.” She grumbles in his ear, as she sucks on that point in his neck right where his shoulder and neck meet. She smiles when she feels his chest rumble with a low growl.

“Not here. Let’s go home. Then I will have my wicked way with you.” He tells her. Felicity then returns to her seat with a somewhat deflated and hurt, but seemingly frustrated look on her face. Oliver notices, but chooses not to comment, instead, he just takes her hand and brings it to his lips with a gentle kiss of reassurance as he pulls out of the parking lot.

Next Day

Ok so day one did not go as planned! Felicity is sitting at her computers thinking to herself that she will just have to up her game. Although she has to admit, lasts night’s sex was definitely supercharged and raw. It was totally worth it, just not in the particular place she wanted it to be! Hmm, she was going to have to give Oliver Queen something he couldn’t resist tonight.

Later that Evening

As they were preparing to leave the lair, Oliver couldn’t help but notice that something was off with his girl. On the surface, everything seemed fine, and if he didn’t know her as well as he did, he would actually believe it was, but he does know her. He can’t quite put his finger on it, but something’s definitely off.

“I’m just going to run to the bathroom real quick then we can head out. Are you riding with me again tonight?” Felicity asked him with hopeful eyes. Who was he to deny her? If something that simple brought her pleasure, then he would gladly do it.

“Sure. We can stop and pick up some Chinese on the way home. I’ll call an order for us while you get ready.” Home he thought. The word didn’t scare him when he thought of her with it. In fact it did the opposite. It made him feel warm and happy and somehow strangely complete.

“Okay! Don’t forget my sweet and sour chicken!” She calls out to him on her way to the bathroom. Chuckling to himself, Oliver takes out his phone and begins to dial the number for their favorite take out.

Fifteen minutes later, Felicity emerges from the bathroom. She has her long black coat on and her purse slung over her shoulders. She actually wore her hair down today, so it sat over her shoulders in loose waves. He knows in his head that she has her pink shirt and black skirt on under that coat, but Oliver’s imagination begins to wander. Her damn coat swallowed any clue of what was underneath. Shit this was going to be a long drive. He can’t believe the things this woman does to him, all the while he thinks half of the time she is completely clueless about it!

“You ready to go?” She asks him, as she once again tosses him the keys. She knows he likes to drive, because it gives him a semblance of control. That he could appreciate. It amazed him how well she knew him too, even by showing it with such simple gestures. Still he couldn’t shake the nagging feeling that something was wrong. Oliver knew he should trust his instinct, but also knew better than to push.

“Yup! Let’s get going. It’s been a long day.” He replied with ease as he gently guided her out of the door and to the car. Ever the gentleman, Oliver opened her door for her, and helped her in. His breath caught in his throat as he took in the long expanse of her legs complete with those blasted strappy heels that made them seem even longer. Felicity seemed to pick up on his reaction and decided to push her luck some.

“Like what you see Mr. Queen?”

“Felicity, you are gonna be the death of me.” He growled out as he closed her door and made his way around.

Unbeknownst to him, as he made his way around to the driver’s side, his little minx was currently enforcing plan B.

As Oliver opened the driver’s side door, and sat down, he put the keys in the ignition. As he went to crank up the car he said “So, what movie…” He was effectively cut off as his mouth went dry. Holy hell, what was she trying to do to him?

There sat Felicity, leaning against the door with her coat open, facing him. Every single scenario his imagination thought up, did not compare to this. Not one bit. His eyes travelled down from her dark green lace bra, that barely covered anything, to her flat stomach. Shit, she has an arrow belly ring? He knew she had the piercing, but he had never actually seen her wear a ring there. Damn if it wasn’t the sexiest thing he had ever seen. His eyes then slowly travelled down to her see through dark green lace boy shorts. She was wearing his color, his symbol, and was waiting. One leg tucked beneath the other as she sat sideways on the seat looking at him.

“Shit Felicity. Are you trying to kill me?” He asks her as he realizes just how tight his pants now are. She just looks at him with this sweet smile of hers and it is his undoing. Oliver practically jumps across the center console to her. Her takes her face in his hands possessively. Like a man on a mission, determined to claim what is rightfully his. His mouth slants over hers with a fierce passion. Tongue pushing, begging for entrance. With a deep moan, Felicity gladly opens up to him. His hands begin roaming down, further, until they circle her tiny waist and easily pull her over the car into his lap. With a small squeak, Felicity settles herself across his knees. Oliver’s hands are now on her hips as she grinds into him.

“Felicity wait!” Oliver puts a sudden halt to their activities.

“What’s wrong?” She asks him.

“Not here. Let’s go home, but this, you and I? We are not done with this.”

“Why not?” He can hear her very quietly ask, almost inaudibly, as she looks down at her hands resting between them on his chest.

“Hey. What’s wrong?” Oliver softly asks her. Genuine concern is now written all over his features. He gently crooks his index finger under her chin to lift her eyes to meet his. It is then that he can see the full extent of the hurt in them. He is scared. He can’t understand what he could have possibly done to hurt her so badly, but whatever it is he will make it right.

“Why won’t you have sex with me in a car? I mean I know you have probably done it at least six times or more. Just never with me. What’s wrong with me? I know you are probably used to more adventurous girls, I want to be that for you, but you won’t let me, I don’t understand why. I don’t know what’s wrong with me.” She finishes her ramble on a whisper with a tear rolling down her cheek.

“Felicity where is this coming from?” He asks he as he gently wipes her tear away with his thumb.

“I read this article the other day that said that the average person has sex in a car at least six times in their life. I started thinking that I haven’t even done that once! Not even once Oliver! What’s wrong with me? You have probably done it a thousand times! Well not a thousand, but a lot. Not saying that you were a man whore or anything, but you kinda were. That’s besides the point. The point is that I set all of this up to show you I could be more adventurous, but you keep stopping it. Every single time. What’s so wrong with me that you don’t want just take me in the front, or back seat of a car?”

“Is that what you think? That there is something wrong with you? Felicity, you are right. The old me was with a lot of women, and yes, that did include the seats of cars.” At this he noticed her eyes fell downcast. Oliver reached up and cradled her face in both of his hands.

“Those women? Not a damn one of them meant anything to me. They were flings. Meaningless sex, a means to an end. That’s why we had sex in a car, not because of adventure, but because I didn’t care where we did, because I had no respect for them. I was a young, arrogant, selfish prick. I treated those women like yesterday’s trash. YOU Felicity Meghan Smoak, are different. You mean everything to me. You are my light, my beacon, my best friend. I would never want to disrespect you by taking you on the seat of a rental car parked in a dark parking lot. Where any random stranger, at any moment could lay his eyes on you. Call me selfish, but this?” He ran his hands gently down the sides of her body to rest on her hips. “This, is for my eyes only. Do you understand? Felicity as you have pointed out, I may have been with a lot of women, but I can tell you that NONE of them, not a single one, could ever hold a candle to you.”

“Oh” was her only response.

“Felicity Smoak speechless? Well, here’s a plan, I call the Chinese place, use some Queen charm and have them deliver, while we go straight home. Because right now I can think of one think I would much rather eat, and you will say much, much more than oh.” Oliver told her with a smug grin on his face.

“Yup.” Felicity said, popping the “p” “ I’m good with that plan” as she climbed off of his lap and settled into the passenger seat.

“Hey Oliver?”

“Hmm?” He responded, intertwining their fingers

“I love you too”

Oliver just grinned like a fool and squeezed her hand, because once again, this remarkable woman, amazed him.

Hey, look! Another silly bit of SoMa fluff I wrote!

Coffee# 1

Maka had always thought huge, big-name coffee chains were pretty ridiculous. Why pay five dollars for a coffee when she could make it herself in her new coffee pot for a fraction of the cost? Perhaps “new” wasn’t the right word to describe it, but the man at the yard sale had called it “old but reliable”, and when she bought it, his guarantee had been good enough for her…

“Old but reliable” my ass, Maka thought begrudgingly as she walked into the overpriced DeathBucks establishment down the street from her apartment one afternoon after sadly watching the coffee pot make a wheezing noise and begin to spark. Normally, she would just buy coffee from the machine at the university, but the whole reason she had bought the damn garage-sale-coffee pot in the first place was because the machine had been removed.

She waited impatiently in the annoyingly long line up in front of the counter. She was grumpy and tired from attending her early lecture (she had the good fortune of being saddled with all morning classes), and she knew if she didn’t get some caffeine in her she just might break down.

“Coffee. Black,” Maka said before she’d even stepped right up to the counter. She hadn’t bothered hiding the disgust in her voice or covering the scowl on her face, but her bitterness faltered she looked up at the barista. The very unique looking, very hot young man behind the counter raised a pale eyebrow.

“Bad day?” he asked.

Her words tumbled out of her before she could even think. “Well, yes, as a matter of fact. My coffee machine broke, so until I can buy a new one I have to get my coffee from a money guzzling store where the lines are way too long and… Are you the only one back there?” she asked in disbelief, peering around the cappuccino machine. “That’s unbelievable! I have work to do!” She hadn’t noticed how her volume had steadily been rising until she was all but screeching in the man’s face.

“I’m sorry, Pigtails. I know the world normally revolves around you, but as the guy who has to work this shift by himself, I gotta say it’s pretty damn uncool to yell at me over things I can’t do anything about,” he said coldly, his red eyes bearing into her like a drill. Maka gawked at him, severely taken aback. Sure, maybe she shouldn’t have directed her anger at him, but he was still being an ass about it.

She slapped down five dollars on the counter, snatched her change from him, and stomped off to wait for her order, cracking open her book for some reading on genetic anomalies. A minute later, the young man’s deep voice called out loudly “Pigtails. Your coffee.”

Coffee #2

There were fewer people in line next day, but still, only the, white haired, annoyingly gorgeous guy was working.

“Pigtails,” he regarded her dryly.

“I could get you fired, you know,” she told him bitterly. “Black coffee.”

He wrote “Pigtails” on her cup.

Coffee #4

“What are you always reading?” he asked, leaning across the counter.

“Books.”

“What kind of books?”

She noticed his name tag for the first time, partially because since that first day, she hadn’t let herself look right at him for too long. Soul. Odd name.

“Books for school,” she responded.

“What are you studying?” he asked.

Maka looked at him and pursed her lips. “Why are you so interested?” He shrugged. “Shouldn’t you be filling orders?” Maka asked him.

“Kilik’s got it,” he said, gesturing to the other worker behind him. For the first time that she had been at the cafe, there was another person working behind the counter. He had greeted Maka with a good-natured “Hi, may I take your order?”, which was a huge leap from Soul calling her Pigtails, and passed the order off to Soul, who was on drink duty. Maybe they realized he’s too insociable to work the cash, Maka thought coldly, though she didn’t entirely mean it.

Coffee #5

Maka opened her mouth to place her usual order, but Soul had already punched it into the register.

“Normally, I don’t trust guys to order for me,” Maka said. He smiled. He had sharp teeth, but Maka barely noticed them; she was too busy looking at his eyes. Although his lips were drawn back in an almost crude smirk, his eyes crinkled at the corners and filled with life. She paid, retrieved the steaming hot drink from Kilik, and sat down in her usual spot.

The red chair and small circular table she had claimed as her workspace was right beside a keyboard that sat untouched in the corner of the warm cafe and gave her a clear view of Soul as he moved around behind the counter.

Coffee #8

“Pigtails,” he regarded her, nodding his head slightly. All traces of any negativity surrounding the name had vanished.

“Soul,” she said, nodding back and fishing her money out of her wallet. Maka hoped she would still be able to afford her daily fix before the next week was over.

“What’s your name?” he asked suddenly. She looked up at him, confused, then realized that, thanks to his nickname for her, he’d never bothered to actually learn her name. She contemplated whether or not she should tell him.

“Maka,” she said after a beat. He smiled. Maka turned away, hoping he hadn’t seen the blush that had risen to her cheeks.

Coffee#13

In addition to her change, Soul handed Maka a red, plastic card with the DeathBucks logo on it and the words “Welove our loyal friends” written in gold cursive letters.

“What’s this?” she asked, turning the card over in her hands.

“Rewards card. Employees can give them out to frequent customers,” Soul responded. He was blushing, and so was Maka, but neither of them noticed the redness on the other’s cheeks.

“Thanks, Soul.”

“Hey, I work here too!” Liz, the other worker besides Kilik who seemed to share Soul’s shift protested. Maka rolled her eyes slightly and thanked her, too.

Coffee #15

Maka was having trouble focusing. Her work load hadn’t been too heavy lately, so she felt disinclined to power through it. Not to mention, she found herself constantly being distracted by the way’s Soul’s fingers drummed methodically on the counter as he took orders. She noticed how he would rake a hand through his hair when he was trying to figure out how to spell a customer’s name, and how the scowl that rested on his face dropped for a split second when they made eye contact across the room.

When there was no line up, Maka pushed herself up from her chair and walked over to where Soul was leaning on the counter, looking bored as hell.

“Why do you always work this shift?” Maka asked. He blinked a few times, as if he couldn’t fully register the question.

“Cause I’m always available this shift,” he shrugged. “Why do you always come here during my shift?”

“Touché,” Maka said approvingly.

They talked for a long time, only taking pauses whenever a new customer came in to order something until Maka left to meet Tsu.

Coffee #17

Maka had spoken too soon about having a light workload. Not three days had passed and she had been hit with three upcoming tests and a quiz, all scheduled over the same two days. She was so engulfed in her studying from the moment she sat down, Soul had to actually come out from behind the counter to set her coffee down on her table, causing her to look up at him.

“It was getting cold,” he told her, peering at the papers and books that were crammed onto the small table in front of her. She noticed for the first time how tall he was.

“Thanks,” she said, smiling gratefully. He shrugged and returned to his post.

Coffee#18

“How’d the first test go?” Soul asked.

“Ok, I think. I’ll let you know when we get the marks back,” Maka responded, holding out her money to him.

“I’m sure you did well. You were studying like crazy yesterday,” he said assuringly. Maka’s stomach did a flip-flop at his smiling eyes.

That day, she hung around longer than usual. A lot longer. Soul nearly spilt three different orders because he was so distracted by the adorable way Pigtails frowned when she had to double back and check something in her notes.

When his shift ended, Soul said good-bye to Liz, who had picked up a double shift for that day, and entered to the door marked “EMPLOYEES ONLY” to stow his red apron in his employee-issued-locker and grab his sweater and phone before his second job started up.

Maka was still there when sat down at the piano. He didn’t notice her at first, and he was almost thankful for that, because he didn’t think he could start playing with those gorgeous green eyes watching him.

When he finished playing his first song, and the music released its hold on him, he noticed her watching him. She had a dreamy, far away look on her face. When she realized he was looking back, she reddened and looked down at her books again. Why did she have to sit so close to the piano? More importantly, why did she have to be sogoddamned distracting?

Coffee #19

“You play really well,” Maka blurted out. Soul looked up at her, seeming somewhat dazed for a moment, then smiled a little.

“Thanks,” he said, sliding her cup across the counter at her.

“Do you play every day?” she asked. She started shaking as she tried to fit the cap so it clicked softly on the lip of the cup.

“No,” he said. “Just Monday, Thursday, and Saturday.” He must have noticed her fidgety hands. “You okay, Pigtails? You look… kind of nervous,” he remarked. She nodded and bit her lip.

“So, you get off at four normally, then?” she asked. He nodded, red eyes looking slightly unsure. Maka took a deep breath.

Just ask him, she thought. Now, do it now. Don’t just stand their with your mouth open. Say something!

“Bye!” she squeaked out, then rushed out of the store entirely.

Coffee#20

After three days of avoiding every DeathBucks in the city and building up her courage, Maka walked into her usual cafe and slammed her hands down on the counter, making Soul look up in alarm.

“Uh, hey,” he said, eyes wide. “Coffee?” He turned to pour the hot drink into one of the cardboard cups. Maka dropped her money on the counter. As she waited for her drink, hands busying themselves with the ends of her sleeves, she faintly heard Soul humming to himself. He pulled the cap off his sharpie and glanced back at Maka, his cheeks holding a pink tinge, then scribbled something down on the cup. When he turned back around and placed the coffee on the counter, Maka burst.

“Date. Today. You and me.” Her words came out harsh and demanding. Her entire face was burning red. Soul stared at her and said nothing. After a few moments of silence, she deflated and stepped back. “Okay. Guess not. Sorry.” No matter how hard she tried she couldn’t string together a full sentence. “Bye.”

She was halfway down the block when she heard a familiar voice calling down the street.

“HEY, MAKA!” she turned around to see Soul jogging after her, a cup in his hand. He reached her, a huge grin on his face, and held out the cup directly in front of her face. “You forgot your coffee.” Maka stared at him for a moment, then looked at the cup. Written in thick black Sharpie was the word “Pigtails” with an arrow towards the opposite side of the cup. Hesitantly, Maka took the cup from him and turned it around to read “Date?”

But how much time did Gendry spend analysing Arya’s hands?He isn’t that kind of guy that refers to anybody’s hands as ‘soft little things’ on a daily basis. Did he get to hold her hand at some point and noticed how small and soft they were in comparation with his? Did he just notice her hands a lot and wanted to hold them to see if they are as soft as they look? Why did he pay attention to her hands in detail, anyway?

I need answers!
