he moves kind of like a pigeon

new to the ML fandom, obvi obsessed with cat noir

I’m new to the Ladybug & Cat Noir fandom, and I have to say, like everyone else, I just love Adrien Agreste. At first I was pretty frustrated with his character because Cat Noir is so confident and assertive, while Adrien seems to be a bit of a pushover at school. People always seem to be dragging him everywhere and he just goes along with it.

It wasn’t until I’d seen more episodes (and later the origin stories eps) that I realized it’s because he doesn’t know how to act at school around other kids his age. That plus his relationship with his father, paired with the disappearance of his mother, makes him such a complex and tragic character. I always have a soft spot for the tragic ones.

I feel like Cat Noir is his chance to be his true self, which is why he took to it so quickly, and I love the moments when that comes through. For example, in Mr. Pigeon when he and Ladybug are in the park and he suddenly just…busts some moves!? Ladybug says, “Act natural!” And he’s like, “I am acting natural.” I love that scene because he kind of took me by surprise? Like, Cat Noir hadn’t done anything like that at that point in the story. 

What I love even more is when these things begin coming through while he’s Adrien and not Cat Noir. Like during the Kung Food ep when he and Marinette actually have real conversations. Or when he asks Marinette to autograph his Jagged Stone cd. SO FREAKING CUTE. I just love him.

Good Vibes

(A/N: BIRTHDAY SURPRISES ARE MY FAVORITE- I’m not sure if this was exactly what you wanted, but I REALLY enjoyed writing this! You’re a doll, thank you! xx The ending is shit I’m sorry, I tried, but it’s really shitty. )


The first time you were away from your family on your birthday, it was difficult needless to say. The four of you were quite close, since really, you only had each other.

Your mother and father were the reason why you became an Auror in the first place being the fact that you never really had money growing up; thankfully they encouraged you day after day to go after your dreams.

Unfortunately for dreams to become a reality, sacrifices must be made. Leading up to your employment, you spent less and less time at home, often leaving  for days at a time. Eventually you were so caught up with work, you thought it best to move out.

It was around that time that you met Newt.

At first you found Newt to be quite silly, always carrying his briefcase in a pigeon toe like manner, but never really understanding why. It wasn’t until Newt showed you the wonders of his suitcase that you finally understood.

Meeting Newt’s creatures was when you started noticing the little things about him. You noticed whenever he would handle Pickett, his voice would soften just a little bit in comparison to his other creatures.

 That being said, you noticed that the creatures kind of made sense in a way- you understood very well that Newt was a big part of their lives as much as they were to him, they completed him in a sense and you thought that was beautiful. 

Newt was very puzzled that day that you met his creatures because you left in such haste. You remember him chasing after you and asking you very politely, “Why did you leave? Did my creatures upset you?”

 You remember shaking you head and checking your watch quickly. Your shift at the ministry started in ten minutes and you couldn’t be late. “No,” you had said, “I’m just really going to be late for work if I don’t leave- I’m sorry!”

Thankfully you weren’t late to work, but you did have a very difficult day full of paperwork, chases, and awkward social interactions with your superior. That night, Newt somehow met you in front of the Ministry entrance and held out his arm. “You look like you could use a hot meal,” he said with a soft smile, “my treat.”

 Your first dinner with Newt wasn’t something you could ever forget. At first it was difficult to get the conversation started, especially since you barely knew the man, but after, it was almost impossible to stop talking. 

When he asked you if you had any family in London, you grew sad and shook your head lightly. “I came here alone after getting my job.” you explained, “It’s really been my dream to be an Auror, so I can’t complain, but I miss my family a lot. It’s difficult to really see them since I’m so busy.”

 Newt furrowed his eyebrows in response and apologized wholeheartedly. You blushed furiously and shook your read, “It’s alright! Honest! Thing’s are much better now that I’ve met you and your creatures.” You sweared his smile could’ve put the sun to shame. 

Fast forward a few years later and you and Newt were closer than ever. A few people had even mentioned the word “Dating,” but the two of you would shake your head in response and laugh quietly. 

You really never saw each other as anything more than best friends. Your birthday was coming up and you swore that Newt was up to something, just like he was every year, but you couldn’t pinpoint what exactly.

 Last year, for example, Newt surprised you with a very rare amethyst necklace that you had been wanting for awhile now. He was never one for giving material things as presents but the Amethyst really held a special place in your heart: It was your mother’s birthstone. 

You remember him looking very smug as you opened your present and when you attacked him with a giant bear hug, he giggled in your ear and wrapped his arms around you as he said “You’re welcome.”

 Currently you were eyeing him with a curious look on your face as he placed food in a bucket for the Grindylow that was floating somewhere in his suitcase. 

“Why are you staring?” he asked suddenly, causing you to jump.

“I’m not staring.” 

“I can feel your eyes piercing my back (y/n),” Newt replied pointedly, “what’s wrong?”

 “Nothing,” you said, sighing, “I just know you’re up to something for my birthday, I just can’t figure out what.” 

Turning around and walking up to you with the Grindylow bucket in hand and a big smile on his face, he shrugged, “you’ll never find out.” he said, “I promise you, you’ll love it though.”

You sighed and pouted, “Of course i’m going to love it!” you cried as he walked out, “You’re amazing at gift giving- just tell me what it is Newt!”

Newt continued grinning as he stepped out of the shed.


True to his word, Newt didn’t let off a single clue of your birthday surprise until the day of your actual birthday.

You woke up that day feeling awful about yourself- it was your twentieth birthday and you were missing your family more than ever.

You had expected them to have called you by now just like any of your other birthdays but it was already noon and not a single call was made. It worried you to no ends, but you tried not to let it bother you as you showered and dressed. Fortunately, the Ministry had given you the day off- which was a fist.

Newt arrived minutes after that with a massive grin on his face and and his suitcase in hand. “Happy Birthday (y/n)!” he called out, but when reached over to hug him, you noticed he looked a bit anxious.

“Thank you,” you replied with a smile on your face, your cheeks blushing, “it’s really not something to get excited over,” you said sadly, “I’m getting old and my family hasn’t called.”

Newt bit his lip and looked down, not daring to meet your eyes. “You’re not getting old,” he said, “you still look as beautiful as when I first met you.”

You nudged his shoulder, “thanks,” you replied, “you’re the best.”

The both of you were quiet for a moment before Newt looked up at you, distress shadowing his eyes, “I have something to tell you, (y/n.)” he said. “I-i tried to make today special for you- really special, but it was so hard.”

“You really didn’t have to.” you retorted, already knowing where this was going, “honestly Newt, you just spending the day with me is all I need.”

“N-no.” Newt stuttered, “i’m sorry, but let me finish. I tried to have your family visit.” he said, and you widened your eyes in shock.

“-But everything went wrong!” he cried, “At first I wanted to take you to them, and then I wanted them to visit you- but I know you’re always busy and i just- I just wanted to make this special for you.” he finished, his eyes sad.

“Aw Newt,” you sighed as you took his face in your hands. “Thank you so much for thinking of me, you’re the best and I will never be able to thank you for what you did- but although I do miss my family, you need to realize that I have-” but before you could finish, you saw a little creature step on your arm and squeak loudly.

“Hi Pickett,” you said, “I’m sorry, but I’m in the middle of a conversation with Newt, would you mind?”

In response Pickett blew you a raspberry, causing you to open your mouth in shock, “how rude!” you said, but again Pickett did the same.

Newt carefully placed Pickett back in his pocket, blushing furiously and said, “I’m so sorry- perhaps I should take him back home- come with me?” he asked.

You nodded your head once and took Newt’s suitcase from his hand and opened it, letting him walk down first before you. As the both of you walked down the stairs, you could hear Newt lightly scolding Picket. “That really wasn’t nice, we’ve talked about this Pickett-”

But as soon as you entered the center of his suitcase you heard a chorus of “SURPRISE,” causing you to jump lightly, your face bright red.

In the midst of all of Newt’s creatures, you recognized two familiar faces, “Mama! Papa!” you cried, running up to them like a child, swallowing them in a hug.

Warmness filled up your body as a chorus of “I love you,” and “I missed you so much,” came out of your mother and father’s mouths, In fact, you couldn’t help but let out a few tears.

“I told you you’d love it.”

based on/inspired by “eyes shut” by years & years, so if you want to get an idea of the vibe of this before you read, i’d look up the song or the lyrics, which i only recommend just because “eyes shut” (and years & years in general) is amazing. if you don’t though, just know that if you’re looking for 100% happy and cute and fluffy, this is probably not where you should be looking. listen to “eyes shut” and years & years anyway though. if no one likes this, i figure at least iamhalseys will so s/o to gabby. soz for fucking you up with that little bit i sent you. i promise i am not trying to kill you.

“I love you.”

Had they been uttered alone, you might not have thought much of those three words. Luke was your best friend and you were his. Of course he loved you. You told each other those three words all the time.

When they followed a laundry list of what exactly he loved about you, you found those three words harder to ignore, especially when you took note of his eyes – the blue hue looking as vibrant and bright and earnest as ever – and the smile on his face, that small one that you’d only ever seen him wear around you.

You’d be lying if you said that you hadn’t fallen into the age-old trap of falling in love with your best friend. Or if you said that you hadn’t daydreamed about him saying those words to you in a way that was more than just platonic. The moment was perfect.

Almost.

Ideally, you would’ve jumped headfirst, repeating those three words back to him and extending your relationship beyond just friendship. But you’d also be lying if you said that you hadn’t also fallen into the age-old trap of being afraid of ruining your friendship with Luke through the addition of romance. Though the possibility that he might not have meant those three words at all was what held you back the most.

                                    Let Me Live in Your City

Some people never say those words
I love you
It’s not their style to be so bold
Some people never say those words
I love you
But like a child, they’re longing to be told

-Paul Simon


A mantra of kiss me kiss me kiss me thrummed in her brain. The air surrounding them was growing thicker by the second. Chloe felt hot and breathless like there was someone clenching her lungs in their fists. She had to get out before she did something horrifically stupid like kiss Niall on his dumb mouth.

“You’re all set, I’m just gonna step out and get some air,” her voice was quiet and high pitched as she let out a breath she didn’t realize she was holding. Turning on her heel she flung herself through the kitchen, out the back door, and onto the porch heaving in breaths of the rapidly cooling night air.

Fuck. Moments like these had become less frequent in the past month; moments where it took everything in Chloe not to push Niall to the ground, crawl on top of him and kiss him till they were both laughing and breathless. They spent almost all their free time together now, sometimes with the others but more often than not it was just the two of them. At times it seemed like they existed separate from the others,  like they were the only two celestial beings orbiting each other through space. Chloe found it strange that it only took four weeks to forget what life was like before she’d met Niall, four weeks to make the best friend she’d ever had. But, lying just below the surface of her skin buzzing like electricity was that attraction she couldn’t stamp out. It was always there beating painfully, steadily,  screaming to be let out.

The previous night they had gone out to grab some takeaway, running to the crowded tube in the rain, both of them too lazy to cook. In the train car they were standing close enough to feel the heat radiating off each other’s bodies. Chloe’s eyes were fixed on his hand next to hers on the pole steadying himself  as they rode past countless stations to the best curry in London. She was transfixed on the veins in his hands, the pale skin white and red around the knuckles. How easy it would be, she’d thought, to reach up and run her mouth along the back of his hand. She wanted to press her fingers into the muscles and veins there, she wanted to leave her fingerprints on his skin. If they were other people they’d run through the rain back home, he would catch her arm and pull her under a shop’s awning and they’d kiss. If they were other people they’d be in love.

Sometimes she felt so obviously transparent. He had to know on some base level how she felt. Right? Like when she looked at him the way she had just now, eyes sharp and focused, red faced and stuttering. How could he not?  Each time raw panic would snap her back into reality. She’d quickly slam the door on her desire before daring look into his eyes knowing she’d only see kind rejection. Chloe vowed each time her feelings spilled over like this to get a better handle on them. It embarrassed her how often she found herself pacing back and forth just behind that line. A line that once crossed would rip through their friendship like wildfire.

……….

Will be a multi-chaptered AU

Theme Song:  Long Drive by Jason Mraz (seriously listen to this song, it’s so perfect)

Request: seremedyxiii asked - Hello there I was wondering if you could write a one shot about dean teaching the reader to drive using the impala. Lots of fluff please! thank you :)

Your name: submit What is this?

———————————-

“Alright, you two going to take that junker back into town?” you asked as you packed your gun into the Impala’s trunk. Sam was standing by the Dodge Challenger he’d ridden in to meet you for the hunt, having been a town over questioning a witness when you and Dean had gotten an unexpected lead on where the vampire nest was. Sam had ‘borrowed’ the first car he’d found and rushed to meet the two of you and Cas to clean the place out.

“Yeah, we’ll get it back, best thing to do,” Sam replied, tossing his own bag into the back.

“I would rather not ride in the car. It’s very tedious. I’ll meet you back in town,” Cas said and disappeared without saying anything else.

The pigeons in this city, they’re kind of like some people here. They don’t exactly have the best reputation. They get kicked, looked down on, most have to fight to survive. Most wouldn’t be too sad if they woke up one day and found them all gone.

I saw a man in the park the other day. His sleeves were ripped, his hair was long. He had life all over his face and some might think he’d seen better days. Most gave him a sideways look and moved on. He was surrounded by birds of every size, like something out of a Disney movie. The birds tend not to trust people around here, but they were all around him, on him, perched on his shoulders, sitting on his head, kissing his face. By god, I never thought I’d see a New York City pigeon show a person love. And his face lit up, like they understood him. He touched them, hugged them, spoke to them, his face changing from ear-splitting smiles to heartbreaking sadness. He said his name is Larry the Bird Man.

I was editing these photos and trying to find some music that somehow fit this moment I was having. Something heard me, I think, because this song came on. I’d never heard it before. I played it about forty times in a row while looking at him. Give it a listen while looking at his face and tell me you don’t feel it too.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0IfIRq3-N8

As if that wasn’t enough, I had a feeling there was something else, something about him that I was missing, so I did a Google. Here are his words:

“I went to prison for twenty years because two guys broke into my house and murdered my wife and kid on December 20, 1986. I caught them in my house and handcuffed them to my front yard, worked them over with a blackjack, and worked them from their ankles to their neck. And then I chopped their heads off with a steak knife… I’m not violent anymore… The birds help keep me normal…”

Like the song says, “Maybe someday I’ll fly with you.”
