his arms going around her

anonymous asked:

Since you asked for prompts: The Enterprise crew blatantly making references to the Necklace Incident in front of Nyota, but of course she has no idea what they're talking about, with Spock being a panicky Vulcan :D

Nyota snags Jim’s sleeve and tugs until he turns.  “We’re going to head out.”

“Yeah.”  His arm falls heavy around her shoulders in a rough squeeze.  She eyes the liquid in his glass, the slosh of it nearly reaching the rim.  “We’ll find you two later.”

The grin he shoots at Spock isn’t abnormal, but the look Spock gives him in return is, a sharpness to it that he hasn’t had around Jim in so long now.  Ages, really.  But it’s gone before Nyota can really catch it and in the end she forgets to ask about it, her drink still bubbling through her and Spock’s hand warm in hers as they wind their way through the crowd of the party.

“Sorry,” she says and slips into the chair beside Scotty as quickly as she can, as if sitting down fast will make up for the fact that everyone else was seated at dinner long before she and Spock managed to arrive.

“No worries,” Scotty says and tips his glass towards her.  “We know how to locate you if you two hadn’t shown up.”

It’s enough to make her cheeks heat.  Of course the Yorktown’s computers would pinpoint them both in their quarters.  She just doesn’t need Scotty announcing it to the table.

Spock levels a look at Scotty that tells her he’s thinking the same thing as her, that nobody really needs to draw their attention to their tardiness, but instead of being cowed by the sternness written across Spock’s face, Scotty just grins at him and tips his glass towards Spock as well.

“Thank you for submitting this,” Commodore Paris says.  “Very thorough synopsis of the mission, Mr. Spock.  Down to the last detail.”

Spock’s nod is as crisp as ever.  “Of course.”

“And you must be Lieutenant Uhura.”  Nyota shakes the Commodore’s outstretched hand.  “Glad to have found you at last.”

“I’ve been here,” Nyota says to Spock when the Commodore has left.  “I think I might have even met her at Jim’s party.  Didn’t I?”

“Human memory is often faulty.”

“Be nice,” she says.  “And I do remember her now, she was-“

“-It is rather curious,” Spock says, his hand on her shoulder steering her away from where she’s watching the Commodore’s retreating back.

“Up for a run?” she asks Chekov, pushing away her work when she’s sure she’s not really reading it anymore.  “There’s a route I haven’t tried, out past the central square.”

“If you can’t remember your way back, we’ll find you,” Sulu says.

“Why wouldn’t I be able to find my way back?”

“You two get to chatting, the run goes a bit long.”  He shrugs.  He’s smiling right at Spock, who isn’t looking at him.  “We’ll get you, don’t worry.”

Now she’s watching Spock too, his focus slightly too intense for the padd in front of him.  “I’m not worried.”

Chekov is laughing as they head out, though even two miles in, he won’t say why.

“I have located you.  Commander Spock said you would be here.”  Jaylah gives a sharp, short nod.  “He would know.”

“Well, we spend a lot of time together,” Nyota says.  Though now that she thinks of it, she’s not sure that she told Spock she was going to stop by the station’s communications bay.  “He sent you here to find me?”

“The Academy requires I pass a Standard proficiency exam.”  Jaylah sits.  “Montgomery Scotty said that you would assist me.”

“Oh.”  Nyota blinks.  “Of course.  But did Commander Spock-“

“I am already proficient.”

“It’s only a formality.  But yes, I’d love to help you.”

“Tomorrow, then.  I will locate you.”

“You can just call my comm,” Nyota says but Jaylah has already walked away, leaving Nyota staring after her.

“That.”  McCoy taps at his own throat.  “Has to go.  No Vulcan wizardry around my biobeds, I just got these configured how I want them.”

“How’d you know it was Vulcan?” she asks as she takes the necklace off, leaving it in a pool of silver and turquoise on a tray near the door.

“Dehydrated.  And your blood pressure’s slightly elevated.  Of course, mine would be too, all that time around Spock.”  A tendon appears in McCoy’s neck, accompanying his grimace.  “I’ll see you back here in two weeks for another physical.  Can’t have you and the rest of the crew out of commission when we’re finally ready to leave this plastic ball.  And don’t think about skipping it just because you’re feeling ok.”  McCoy waves his tricorder towards her.  “Otherwise I’ll have that Commander of yours track you down again.”

“Again?” she asks, not yet pushing herself down from his exam bed.  “When did he track me down the first time?”

But McCoy doesn’t answer, his head shaking and that tendon still tight, so she grabs her necklace and gets out of there before he can launch into the diatribe she’s sure is coming.

“There she is.”  The smile Jim gives her nearly takes her aback.  It’s one she hasn’t seen in too long now and it occurs to her how much she’s missed it.

Beside him, Spock isn’t exactly smiling, but he’s not exactly not smiling either.  

“You happy to be heading out again soon?” she asks.

“Just happy to have found you,” Jim says, though when he wags his eyebrows at Spock, Spock looks away.

Nyota crosses her arms.  “What’s going on?”

“I’m happy to see you,” Jim says, though it sounds far more like a question.  He turns towards Spock again.  “We are happy.  Right?”

“What do you mean you found me?”

“You know.” He waves to the corridor and then to her.  “You’re here.”

“I know I’m here.”

Jim grins again.  “And Spock knows that too.”

“What is this?” she asks, though when she tries to catch his eye, Spock won’t quite look at her.

Jim’s brows knit and his lower lip sticks out.  If he didn’t look so innocent, she’d take his confusion for something entirely more playful.  “You really don’t know?”

“Know what?”

“Your-“ Jim points at her neck and her hand closes over it, but all that’s there is the collar of her uniform and the familiar weight of her necklace beneath it.  “How do you think we found you?  And Sulu and the crew?”

“A scan?”  She resists patting at her throat as if there might be something else there.  “Triangulating our transmission?”

“Uhura,” Jim says.  “Spock basically put a homing beacon on you.”

She blinks.  Jim raises both eyebrows.  Spock studies a spot just past her left shoulder.  “You found us with-“ She taps at her neck.  “This?”

“It’s radioactive too,” Jim says.

“Insignificantly so,” Spock says.

“Still.”  Jim holds up both hands, palms out.  “It’s kind of cool.”

“My necklace is a homing beacon?”

“More like a tracking device.”  Jim claps Spock on the shoulder.  “I’ll let you handle the rest of this.”

“I don’t know if that’s sweet or slightly creepy.”  Spock isn’t blinking, even with Jim gone.  “The entire crew knows?”

“Admittedly, it was rather convenient.”  

“Convenient,” she repeats.  She traces over the shape of the pendant and then she sighs.  “I’ll go with sweet.  But I might have to come up with something of my own, you know.”

“Is that so?” he asks and can’t quite mask the measure of relief that colors his words.

When she curves her hand into his, he squeezes back.  “Don’t worry.  It’ll be something nice.”  She runs her thumb over those long fingers of his.  “I have some ideas already.”

Niall Horan is pictured looking VERY cosy with Belgian student
He tends to keep his love life fairly under wraps - but One Direction star Niall Horan has been pictured looking cosy with a very stunning new girl.

He tends to keep his love life fairly under wraps - but One Direction star Niall Horan has been pictured looking cosy with a very stunning new girl.

The 22-year-old was pictured with a flame-haired beauty Belgian student called Celine Helene Vandycke at Mumford and Sons’ gig at the British Summer Time festival in London on Friday.

But a source told MailOnline: ‘They are not dating, nor are they boyfriend and girlfriend.’

However, The Sun has obtained images of the pair who appeared to be enjoying one another’s company very much.

A source told the publication: 'Niall never let Celine out of his sight and looked infatuated.He had his arm around her throughout the evening and kept going in to peck her on the cheek while they watched the gig.

'They seemed incredibly happy in each other’s company, laughing and giggling loads.

'At one point Niall kissed her in front of everyone and obviously didn’t care that people were watching.’

The publication reports that Celine has just completed a degree in law at the University of Exeter.

Niall has previously been linked to Ellie Goulding and Selena Gomez and model Melissa Whitelaw, who he split from in March 2015.

Meanwhile, it recently emerged that fellow One Direction star Harry Styles has reportedly signed a record deal worth $80million.

Harry is already said to be worth a cool $23million, but he is set to quadruple his fortune after signing the deal.

The star turned down offers from a number of other labels to work with Columbia Records on three solo albums.

But fans eager to hear Styles’ new music may have to wait a while, as there has been no indication on when the records will be released.

But Niall recently got to appear solo on the cover of Golfer magazine.

He told the publication: 'When I was on the road with One Direction it allowed me to escape the hotel for a few hours and relax.’

skyswords  asked:

Perhaps 26 & 71 from the prompts? Also I adore your writings so very very much! <3

26. “I’m sorry.  I didn’t mean to.”

Allura always knew that the Paladins of Voltron would lead lives full of danger and risk. She just hadn’t realized at the time of finding the new Paladins it would be so heartwrenching to watch them risk their lives. Her heart was still pounding in her chest as the Lions landed and the Paladins disembarked. All of them were exhausted, bruised and battered, but her heart leapt to her throat when she saw Shiro with his arm wrapped around his side, the white uniform stained by blood. 

She immediately rushed to him, prying his hand away. “How did this happen?” she demanded, her voice laced with fear.

“Before we got in the lions,” he mumbled, his eyes unfocused. He looked like he was going to pass out. She slung his arm around her shoulders to support his weight. “Got a scrape.” 

“That’s some scrape!” Coran remarked, worriedly stroking his mustache. “He needs to get to the infirmary, stat!” 

It didn’t take Shiro that long to heal, and after a few hours in the healing pod he was released with strict orders for bed rest. Seeing their leader was alright, and knowing they had other things to attend to (checking their lions for damages, among other things) the other Paladins headed out. Shiro would be far more likely to relax if he knew they were all doing their jobs properly, after all. 

Coran patted Shiro lightly on the back. “Glad to have you back, Shiro.” He glanced at Allura’s stony expression, and hesitated. “Well, I suppose I’ll leave you two alone.”

Allura waited until he was gone to speak, her usually expressive face blank. “Do you have any idea how worried I was?” she said softly.

Shiro’s brow furrowed in concern. “I’m sorry princess, I didn’t mean to―”

“I thought I was going to lose you.” She swallowed hard. “I can’t―the universe cannot afford to lose you.” She reverted back into a professional tone, a prim and proper princess, and hardly one that would form unprofessional attachments to a Paladin. No matter how kind or brave or handsome he was.

Shiro smiled, with an almost knowing look in his eye. “Of course not.” He pushed himself to his feet and walked over to her.  Her eyes widened as their proximity grew smaller and smaller, until he was less than an arm’s reach away from her. “Although I have a different problem: I can’t afford to lose you, because you are my universe.” He leaned in, emboldened, and pressed his lips briefly to her cheek. “Good night, princess.” 

“Good night, Shiro,” she said faintly, reaching up to touch her burning cheek as he walked away, her heart pounding. Maybe she’d be brave enough to tell him the truth before he wound up in the infirmary again. 

71. “No reason.”

Because I want everyone’s damn mothers to suddenly appear, and it can’t be easy getting a job when you’re a teenager whose main skills are shooting and sass.

I don’t think I’ve ever posted a comic before because what is consistency??!

She knows his side of the bed is empty even before she opens her eyes because she knows just how the bed should feel - just how she should feel and he should feel with his arms around her - if he were in bed. They did go to bed together, that much she knew, it wasn’t like he had still been i the office when she had gone to bed - something that was happening a lot recently with all the demands of his job. But she still opens her eyes and rolls over to make sure, and of course, his side is empty, covers messy, pillow half off the bed and she quickly scans the room, eyes glancing towards the bathroom door but he isn’t there.

She sleepily gets out of bed and goes in search of him. She knows it is isn’t something urgent that got him out because he would have woken her up too - at least if it was work related. She drags her feet on the wood floor, the blanket she wraps herself with dragging behind her, and she rubs her eyes with the back of hand as she makes her way down the hallway from their bedroom to the living room.

“Kurt?” she mumbles when she makes his figure in front of the laptop, the only source of light, at the kitchen counter.

He turns at the sound of her voice, his face lit by the white light, screen reflecting off his glasses. She smiles, not often getting the chance to see him in his glasses. “I’m sorry,” he whispers, “did I wake you?” 

She closes the distance between them and stands next to him. “You not being in bed woke me up,” she says sleepily, “if that’s what you mean.”

He smiles gently, “I’m sorry,” he says, “but I got an email from the director of the LA office and had to reply.”

“At two in the morning?” she wonders, resting her cheek against her shoulder and shutting her eyes briefly.

“Well, it’s still eleven there,” he tries to rationalize his actions.

“Is it urgent?” she mumbles, pulling the blanket tighter around her, with her head still against his shoulder.

He almost says it is but then she wraps one arm around him and mumbles something against his neck.

“No, it isn’t,” he admits.

“Then come back to bed,” she says, lifting her head up, “please?” Her free hand clutches his and she tries to pull him up. He chuckles at her sleepy attempt and gets up. He puts an arm around her and she leans into him, half asleep, she lets him lead them back.

“I don’t like it when you’re not in bed,” she mumbles in her sleepy state.

“I’m sorry,” he apologizes softly.

“Don’t do it again,” she says as he turns them into the bedroom.

“I won’t,” he says.

“That’s what you said last time,” she reminds him as she settles in bed and he gets in as well.

He reaches for her and pulls her towards him, taking her in his arms, “I know, I’m sorry,” he whispers into her hair, “I promise to try better.”

“Mmmm,” she sighs, almost fully asleep now, “good… because I’d have to handcuff you to the bed otherwise, and it won’t be as fun as that other time.”

deviliciious  asked:

‘Mmmf! <3 sweet revenge

send ‘Mmmf!’ for your muse to straight up kiss mine

Well this was hardly something she did not see coming. Harribel knew the demon was a devious one. As their playful back and forth would surely amount to him getting revenge, or pay back. She would feel soft and demanding lips press up against her own, gladly accepting the contact as arms would go to wrap around his neck. Pulling Sebastian closer to her.  “Does this mean I win?” She would utter, pulling away as teeth would pull on his lower lip. “Because I believe my teasings have finally earned me my victory.”

chats-little-ladybug  asked:

To say Ladybug was sidetracked on tonight's patrol was an understatement, the heroine lagging behind Firefox and Chat as she had her phone out. There was a Vulpix near by! And that meant that she should be able to find it soon. Granted crashing into her boyfriend's back had been unexpected, same with the feel of his arms going around her waist to give her stability as he chuckled. She was hot on the trail and he was speaking to her, but goodness if she heard the first time, she wanted that rare.

• 🎨 •

Firefox sighed as his girlfriend ran into him.

“Ladybug come on we’re watching for akumas…”

She didnt reply.

“Babe hop on my back before I pick you up cause I swear you’re just gonna end up falling off the roof.”

TBH they looked OK together at Wimbledon,he looked relaxed enough,no PissyBatch,they were talking,he had his arm around her.Even spotted her going for his hand when they were standing up and the camera went to Cameron when he was getting all the boos.It’s certainly not the story he’s tried to sell but maybe they have “settled” for each other and he still gets his freedom to work and be alone if he wants.Maybe they have worked out *something* that works for whatever they want it to work for ?? He still looks way older than his age though and that’s only since Nov 14.The greased back hair ages him ++++++

hurtbywhisperedmuses  asked:

“We’re far from perfect. But we are good.”

meme || status: accepting !!

for: @hurtbywhisperedmuses

“Of course we are,” he said with a small smile and a nod. She had a point. They had their moments, they fought a lot. They didn’t always see eye to eye and there were times when she misunderstood him, yes. But he loved her and things always worked out. He wrapped his arms around her and kissed her gently. “Nothing is going to change that. We don’t have to be perfect. Perfection doesn’t exactly exist anyways,” he mused, “if perfect existed life would be boring.”

continued from this 

Mark understood that she was scared, but just because she was scared didn’t mean she was going to be a shitty mom. His arms wrapped around her waist as he rubbed her back a bit and placed a kiss to the top of her head. It was a huge step in their relationship, having kids and settling down, and he understood if she wasn’t ready for that just yet. “You wouldn’t be a shitty mom.” He muttered into her hair as he continued to hold her against his chest. “Sure you might have to turn in your motorcycle for a minivan but…” Mark was trying to lighten the mood a bit and he just hoped that it was working. His eyes caught hers for a moment as she cuddled closer to his chest. “I just hope… you’ll think about it. Maybe not tomorrow, hell maybe not even years from now, bust just think about it sometime.” He muttered as he continued to rub her back. The two of them just laid there in his, well it seemed like their bed since she had been over so many times. “And as cheesy as this sounds, I wouldn’t be talking about kids if I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life with you and only you.”  @indiemuseblr

The One Direction hunk treaded through the mud at Glastonbury festival, suited up for the tennis at Wimbledon and slipped into his football kit with Louis Tomlinson for Soccer Aid recently and at all of these public events he seemed very much single.

But when the Irishman watched Mumford & Sons at BST Hyde Park on Friday he was spotted canoodling with a mystery brunette.

It’s been revealed that her name is Celine Helene Vandycke and she hails from Belgium. She’s reportedly just graduated with a degree in law from the University of Exeter.

Not much else is known about Celine or how she met the 22-year-old star, but they only had eyes for each other at the music event.

A source said: “Niall never let Celine out of his sight and looked infatuated. He had his arm around her throughout the evening and kept going in to peck her on the cheek while they watched the gig.”

They added to The Sun newspaper: “They seemed incredibly happy in each other’s company, laughing and giggling loads. At one point Niall kissed her in front of everyone and obviously didn’t care that people were watching.”

Meanwhile, the Irish hunk was spotted leaving London’s Tileyard Studios where it is believed he is working on his first solo album since One Direction announced their hiatus last year.  He’s also a keen golfer and set up Modest Golf Management who nurture new talent in the sport.

rennali  asked:

💓

“Rennali..” Her name sounded rich when he spoke his native tongue. When his eyes locked in on her, he had a sensation to kiss her. He had to time this right. This wasn’t going to be a ‘all teeth’ kiss. No. It needed to be true – from the heart. His arms went around her waist, going in for a kiss. When he felt his lips touch hers, he lightly pressed them on hers then parted from it. “Sorry.. I..” He mumbled gibberish after that. 

bloodyrosehunterzerokiryu  asked:

“Please, don’t leave Eiri.”Zero whispers so quietly that if he weren't right by her hear she wouldn't have heard him "Don't go to 'him' he doesn't care about you" he adds wrapping his arms around her from behind not wanting to let her go.

— {˙ღƸ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒღ˙} —— “That doesn’t matter, right?” She murmurs, finding more comfort in Zero’s embrace than she cares to admit. “I don’t care about him either. Using each other and being used… It’s perfect like this, the perfect arrangement.”

inionnaforaoise  asked:

"Even if Irunya thinks yer garbage (which ye are) ye're me garbage cinnamon roll mate and I still like ye." She's just going to wrap her arm around his neck and bring him down to her level. He's too damn tall okay?

@inionnaforaoise


[ He can be a good kid, alright? It just takes some time and learning to fully recognize that. ]

“Aw, that’s real kind of you to say.” [ …Garbage cinnamon roll? Was that some sort of generic term? ] “I’m content with being a roll of cinnamon.”

He saw her in the waiting room of the hospital, her back to him. With a grin he walked over to her and wrapped one of his arms around her waist, his lips going to her neck. “Can I help you gorgeous?”
