Fandom: DC (Legends of Tomorrow)
Pairing: Ray Palmer x Plus Sized Reader
Y/N joined Team Legend at the same time that Nate joined up.
Y/N and Ray had been dating pretty much since she joined the team. Ever since they started dating YN constantly questioned why Ray was with her. Well not out loud. Only in her head. Maybe it was just her being insecure about being bigger than most girls. Maybe she was being stupid. But she couldn’t help but be insecure.
Y/N’s insecurities got worse when she found out who Ray had previously dated. She was having a random conversation with Sara, when she brought up the topic of dating. And naturally Y/N asked the question of who Ray had previously dated. She found out that he had dated former team member Kendra, who Sara showed Y/N a picture of.
Y/N’s became even more insecure when she saw how gorgeous Kendra was.
Ever since then she had tried her best to avoid Ray as much as possible. Only talking to him when necessary. Only talking to him when the team was on a mission.
Ray was fed up of Y/N ignoring him, so one day after a mission he followed you back to your room on the Wave Rider.
“Y/N we need to talk.” He said shutting her bedroom door behind him.
“Can it wait? I’m exhausted, I really need to sleep.” Y/N said trying to make up an excuse so she wouldn’t have to speak to her boyfriend.
“No it can’t wait. Why have you been avoiding me?” Ray asked.
“I haven’t been ignoring you. I’ve just been busy.”
“Too busy to talk to your boyfriend?”
“Look I’m sorry Ray. But it’s for the best.”
“What are you talking about Y/N? What’s happened?” Ray asked slightly worried.
“I know you used to date Kendra. And I’ve seen pictures of her. She’s absolutely gorgeous. And look at me. I’m fat and ugly. Why would you go from dating someone as beautiful as her, to dating someone as ugly as me?”
“Don’t you dare say that!” Ray shouted making Y/N flinch.
Ray tried to walk closer to Y/N, but she just backed away from him.
“I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to shout at you. I just didn’t like the way you talked about yourself. Look Y/N. I love you for who you are. You may be bigger than some other girls, but that doesn’t make you any less beautiful. In fact I think you’re the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen. I love you so much, and I don’t want you to think any differently.”
Y/N stood there, not saying anything. She was stunned. Ray had said he loved her. The two of them were yet to say those 3 words.
“You love me?” She asked.
It wasn’t the response that Ray was hoping for.
“I do. I love you a lot Y/N. And I was hoping that you love me too, but I guess not.” Ray said, before turning to walk away.
But before Ray could even take a step to leave Y/N quickly said “I love you too.”
Ray turned around to look at Y/N.
“You do?” He asked.
“Of course I do you idiot. I’m sorry I didn’t say it back straight away. I was just shocked that’s all. No one’s. No one’s ever loved me.”
“Well I do. And I always will.” Ray said before kissing Y/N.
