Garrett and Marian - Legacy Banters
  • Marian: Well... not quite how I imagined this family reunion going. I was envisioning more hugs and maybe some wine over dinner. Not attempted assassinations
  • Carver: Really? You think this is so abnormal for our family?
  • Marian: Well you got me there
  • ---
  • Bethany: What could our father have to do with this mess? The Carta have had more than enough time to try and find us
  • Garrett: I imagine that having two Champions of Kirkwall with the last name Hawke may have tipped them off
  • Bethany: But it's been three years since you and sis defeated the Arishok. Why wait that long?
  • Marian: Well I don't know about you, but if I was going to go after the people who killed an Arishok then I'd probably want to make a little time for planning, wouldn't you?
  • Carver: Do these morons strike you as the sensible type?
  • Marian: Two points in one day Carver? Don't tell me the Templars are actually drilling some wit into that skull of yours
  • Carver: *laughs* At least /my/ wit makes a point, dear sister
  • Bethany: Ooh, that had to hurt
  • Garrett: Do you need some healing for that one, Marian?
  • Marian: Oh shove off, all of you
  • ---
  • Garrett: And we're back in the Deep Roads
  • Marian: Oh it's not that bad. I mean... Look at all the... Ugh, no, you're right this is terrible. Let's all promise never to go to the Deep Roads after this. Three times is enough
  • Garrett: Three times? When was the second?
  • Marian: Um... well...
  • Carver and Bethany: *sing song voices* Somebody's in trouble
  • ---
  • Bethany: Varric wrote to me the other day
  • Garrett: Telling another of his stories, I bet. Was it the one about the high dragon, because that didn't really-
  • Bethany: No. He was giving me an update. On you, actually. I was... worried, so I wrote to him and asked
  • Garrett: I'm fine Beth. Really
  • Bethany: No you're not. Not yet. But I know you, and if anyone can get past it, you can
  • Garrett: Thank you
  • ---
  • Carver: You might want to be watch yourself, Garrett
  • Garrett: How come?
  • Carver: Ever since you sided with Orsino the other day, there's been... Rumours. Meredith isn't happy with you, and it's only because she allows it that you're still free
  • Garrett: So is she going to have me dragged to the Circle, or is she getting the Brand ready now?
  • Fenris: Don't say that
  • Carver: I would never let it get that far. But I thought I'd warn you, just in case you were thinking about making her mad
  • Garrett: I appreciate you telling me Carver. Don't worry. I'll be careful
  • ---
  • *after completing Malcolm's Will*
  • Marian: So... the stonework down here is... lovely, isn't it?
  • Carver: Not now, Mary
  • Marian: I was only... Alright
  • ---
  • Marian: Are you okay, Gary?
  • Garrett: I'm fine... Just...
  • Marian: He loved you. And Bethany. He'd be so proud of you
  • Garrett: You sound so sure of that
  • Marian: Of course I am. Because it's true. And don't let that nasty shit in your head tell you otherwise - it's a liar, remember
  • Garrett: *chuckles* Alright
  • Bethany: Be careful sister, people might think you've got a heart after all
  • Marian: *dramatically* Oh no! *clutches chest* I think... I think I'm getting feelings! Quick, someone beat them out of me!
  • Carver: *laughs* You be careful what you wish for sister
  • Isabela: I'd rather ride them out of you
  • Garrett: Ah, and there's the dirty line. I was starting to worry something was wrong Bela
  • Isabela: And you're as sweet as ever, Garrett
  • ---
  • Varric: Twenty silvers, that's my final offer. Take it or leave it Elf
  • Marian: What are you betting on, and why am I getting left out of it?
  • Varric: You want in? We're betting on what it'll take to get Junior and Waffles to hug
  • Garrett: *groans* You're not calling me 'Waffles' again, are you?
  • Varric: I have to. Every time I say 'Hawke' all four of you turn around. I'm being considerate
  • Carver: I bet there's /someone/ here who'd like to see him covered in syrup
  • Garrett: Carver!
  • Fenris: *embarrassed noises*
  • Isabela: Ooh, new friend-fiction idea!
  • Garrett: Don't you even dare!
  • Isabela: Too late, already dared. Can we make camp? I need to make notes
  • ---
  • Varric: Hey, Rivaini, I'm expecting royalties if that friend-fiction of yours gets published
  • Carver: When you didn't even come up with it?
  • Varric: You wouldn't have brought up syrup if I didn't call him Waffles
  • Garrett: Maker save me...
  • Bethany: And me...
  • Marian: Usually I like dirty things... But this is too far, even for me
  • Isabela: Are you saying you wouldn't like it if /I/ were covered in syrup?
  • Marian: Oh I'm sorry. I didn't realise you were my very hairy twin brother, Bela
  • Isabela: Well when you put it that way...
  • ---
  • Isabela: I always thought we were the loud ones, you know
  • Fenris: What?
  • Marian: I know right. Maybe they're just less shy about it now
  • Garrett: Do I want to know?
  • Isabela: You already know. Or did you deafen yourself?
  • Marian: To think, they don't need us shouting encouragement through the wall anymore. I'm so proud
  • Isabela: Our boys are growing up so fast. Maybe next they'll master foreplay
  • Carver: Oh Maker, I do not want to hear this
  • Bethany: Neither do I
  • Garrett: *loudly* And I would be very happy if we could stop talking about this. Right now
  • Isabela: Yeah, see. That kind of loud
  • Fenris: *deadpan* If you're so fascinated by Garrett being loud, then you must not be doing a very good job at making Marian scream, Isabela
  • Marian: Oooooooo
  • Isabela: Oh, you snarky little shit
  • Bethany: *loudly* If we could stop discussing my older brother's and sister's sex lives, I would appreciate it
  • Carver: *loudly* Oh look, more darkspawn. Let's kill them so we can stop talking about this
  • ---
  • Marian: So our choices are the nice, Tainted madman, or the mage who wants to let a darkspawn magister out of his hole in the ground? Why can we never make nice decisions, like what kind of wine to have with dinner?
  • Fenris: I agree. It is the only decision worth making
  • Marian: When you're not throwing it at the walls, I assume?
  • Fenris: That was six years ago
  • Marian: And you never offered me a glass
  • Fenris: You are recycling jokes now? Has the great Marian Hawke's wit finally lost it's edge?
  • Marian: Ooh, you are just asking for it now
  • ---
  • Varric: You okay Garrett? You've been a bit quiet since-
  • Garrett: I'm fine Varric. There's more important things to be worried about right now
  • Varric: It's not easy to realise that someone you looked up to wasn't quite what you imagined. You ever need to talk, you know where my suite is
  • ---
  • Isabela: So... is no one going to bring up the fact that Varric called Garrett by his name earlier?
  • Varric: What are you talking about Rivaini? Waffles and I were just having a friendly chat
  • Isabela: Don't bullshit me. You called him Garrett. I heard you
  • Varric: That doesn't sound like me, Rivaini
  • Marian: He called you by your name when Velasco carted you off to Castillon
  • Isabela: What?! No fair, I didn't get to hear!
  • ---
  • Bethany: Are you sure about this, brother?
  • Garrett: It has to be done
  • Bethany: I could do it. I am a Hawke after all, and a mage. You don't need to-
  • Garrett: No, Bethany
  • Bethany: But-!
  • Garrett: Bethy, if I let you use blood magic, I'd never be able to live with myself
  • Bethany: And if you do it, will you be able to live with it?
  • Garrett: I'd rather it be me than you
  • ---
  • Varric: If he pulls a dragon out of his ass, I'm leaving!
  • Marian: Oh great, and now he's almost certain to pull a dragon out of his arse! Way to go Varric
  • ---
  • Bethany: Here, you didn't get a chance to close that wound earlier
  • Garrett: Thank you
  • Fenris: I just hope it was worth it
  • Marian: Well we /did/ just kill a darkspawn magister. I can't wait to hear how Varric tells this one
  • Varric: Well I doubt I'll have to exaggerate a damn thing, considering how weird this shit is
  • Fenris: That isn't what I meant...
  • Garrett: I'd have avoided it if I could, but someone had to. And if it meant sparing my little sister from that...
  • Fenris: I understand. But... Please, just be more careful from now on
  • Garrett: I will, I promise
  • Isabela: You two are so sappy... It's actually rather cute
GrimmFuture!Crew meeting with their volume 1 counterparts to exchange advice! (Sent by anon)
  • Grimmfuture!Ruby, harshly: Kill Cinder Fall. As soon as possible.
  • Ruby, shaking from shock: Wh....what? Kill someone?? And why do you have Uncle Qrow's scythe? What's going on with your eye? What's that mark on your waist? What /happens/ in the future!?!
  • Grimmfuture!Ruby, glaring down to her own waist, flexing her shoulders to allow her cloak to envelop her: Just get rid of Cinder. Then none of this will happen.
  • ~~~
  • Grimmfuture!Weiss, a small chuckle: Get used to your teammates quicker.
  • Weiss, with a pout: Well if they were competent I'd have no issue!
  • Grimmfuture!Weiss, shaking her head with a sigh, looking over to GF!Blake with a small smile: Believe me...you'll grow to love them more than you think.
  • Grimmfuture!Weiss, clearing her throat: Ahem. But, you need to get along with your team, the Headmistress of Beacon can NOT be so difficult to work with. Understand?
  • Weiss, her eyes widening in amazement: H...Headmistress?
  • ~~~
  • Grimmfuture!Blake, placing a gentle hand on Vol1!Blake's shoulders: Your team will accept and love you for who you are...I promise.
  • Blake, stiffling back tears, trying to keep her voice from shaking: R-Right...
  • Grimmfuture!Blake, her tone saddening, avoiding Vol1!Blake's eyes: There are some things though...that you won't enjoy doing...but you have to. Only /you/ can completely eradicate the White Fang.
  • Blake, stepping back in shock, panicked: E-Eradicate!?!
  • ~~~~
  • Yang, her eyes rapidly scanning her older counterpart: Your arm...and that...weird sword? Is that...is that mom's?
  • Grimmfuture!Yang, glancing over her shoulder, looking at the hilt of her mother's sword, nods: Yeah. Yeah it is. She isn't dead, at least I don't think so. As for the arm...uhh, try your best to keep it out of harms way. Maybe you can hold onto it.
  • ~~~
  • Jaune, sitting on the ground after being knocked down, through gritted teeth: Wh-what was that for!?!
  • Grimmfuture!Jaune, glaring down at his younger self, a burning hatred in his eyes: Your...MY...cowardice and incompetence is the reason /she's/ dead. Get yourself in high gear. You might have a sliver of a chance to save her if you shut up and get down to work right now.
  • Grimmfuture!Jaune, jabbing his cane into the gut of his younger self: You might even be able to save your leg too while you're at it.
  • ~~~
  • Grimmfuture!Nora, sheepishly: I...I remember when I was still as lively as you are...just...promise me, err, yourself something.
  • Nora, uncharacteristically quiet: Yeah? What is it?
  • Grimmfuture!Nora, almost reluctantly, holding back sobs, beginning to visibly shake: Try to...try not to take loss so hard...that's the life of a Huntress after all...loss.
  • Nora, remaining silent, her face pointing down to the ground: ....
  • ~~~~
  • Pyrrha, looking around, a worried expression upon her face: Maybe...maybe the older me got lost...she...she's around here somewhere? Right?
  • Pyrrha, fearful tears building up in her eyes, her voice cracking: R-Right?
  • ~~~~
  • Grimmfuture!Ren, bowing to his younger self: You've already dedicated so much of your life to her. And she's made you happy, she's made you smile countless times.
  • Ren, quietly, glancing over to the two Noras: ....Nora?
  • Grimmfuture!Ren, placing his hands on Vol1!Ren's shoulders, snapping him back into reality, a broken-hearted look on his face: However...if your lives come to the point of ours...it will then be your turn to put the smile on her face...the happiness in her heart. She will be broken, and you will be the only one to hold the pieces tight.
  • Ren, his lip trembling, but he quickly gets a hold of himself, looking into the eyes of his older self, and nods, determined: Of course. Of course.
  • ~~~~
  • Coco, grabbing onto her older self's shirt collar, her voice shaking with fury: WH-WHAT DO YOU MEAN SHE'S GONE!? WHO DID IT!?
  • Grimmfuture!Coco, her sunken and bloodshot eyes sadly look herself up and down, lazily bringing a flask up to her lips: You...really don't want the answer to that.
  • ~~~~
  • Fox, silently sitting alone: ....
  • Velvet, slowly sitting beside Fox, her calm look being betrayed by the worry in her voice: Mine...mine didn't come either.
  • ~~~~
  • Grimmfuture!Yatsuhashi, stroking his chin: You will see pain my young friend, however you must be able to warp this pain, and turn it to peace. For the violence and anger towards the actions of fate shall only bring more misery.
  • Yatsuhashi: I...I am not sure I understand.
  • Grimmfuture!Yatsuhashi, nodding: Only time will clear your mind. With time you shall find the answer. With time you shall make your decision. I pray you feel it as the correct one to make.

  • Cardin, with a snarl: What?
  • Grimmfuture!Cardin, on his knees practically begging: Please...just make sure your team knows how much you really appreciate them. They need it. You need it. You need /them/.
  • Cardin, brushing it off, though the look in his eyes proves his worry: My team is strong. No way they'd lose to anything.
  • Grimmfuture!Cardin, slowly standing up straight, solemnly: You're going to change a lot over the years...just.
  • Grimmfuture!Cardin, almost choking up: Try to get home to your family on time everyday...a lot can happen when you're thirty minutes late...
  • ~~~~
  • Cinder, slightly interested: So...Ruby Rose is really worth all that effort?
  • Grimmfuture!Cinder, a smirk spreading across her face, a look of absolute lunacy: Indeed...she's such a special little toy...

anonymous asked:

Don't feel pressured to fill this ask because you're great and I wouldn't want you to write something you don't like. But what about a fic where Tony is perfectly capable of defending himself but the Guardians are still way overprotective. And then somehow the Guardians get captured but Tony is able to break them out, smirking because he knows he's proved himself perfectly capable. I'd rather there be no angst.

first let me say thank you for those kind words! :3 of course i’ll write you that, because its such a cute idea! ( i hope there is no angst :O)

________

“Alright are you all ready?” asks Peter when their ship lands on the planet. It seems uninhabited but they don’t know for sure.

“Born ready.” says Rocket and grins up at Peter. He has already two guns on his belt and another big one in his… uh paws.

“I wanna use my new knife. I hope its not really uninhabited.” says Gamora and she is smiling. Peter likes that about his team. Always ready for another adventure.

“What about me?” asks Tony and his voice sounds a bit off, because he is wearing his new armor. Peter turns around.

“You are coming with us. Need your ability to scan the walls of the old castle.” says Peter and Tony groans.

“I wanna fight, too! I mean i don’t want to boast, but my new repulsers are awesome.” Peter can’t see it but he knows that Tony grins at his words.

“Well… yeah. But you team up with Drax and Rocket.” says Peter finally and takes Groot on his shoulder.

Its not that they don’t trust Tony or think that he’s weak but… you know… only human. Well Peter is, too. But you know.

“Fine. But i’ll get any shiny things that we’ll find.” says Tony and Rockets looks up at him.

“No way Ironhead. But maybe i share it with you.” says Rocket and Tony holds his hand for him out.

“Deal, Raccoon.”

Peter is not sure why. But when Tony says Raccoon Rocket isn’t angry at all. He seems to like it, when it is Tony, who calls him that.

“So Gamora i want you on the right side. Me and Groot take the left. Rocket give Drax a jetpack. And you go from the air with Tony.” explains Peter and everybody nods.

Not Drax. He already complains about the jetpack. (you will know why when you see GOTG2 :D)

“ATTACK!” yells Drax a moment later and Peter wants to strangle him for that.

The planet is not uninhabited.

Those residents looks a bit weird. That is the first thought that Peter has. A moment later one of them shoots something sticky at him. It feels like a net. But its so tacky, that Peter can’t move is right leg anymore.

“Shit.” he growls into his comm.

“What?” is the answer from Gamora, Rocket and Tony.

“Don’t know he hit me with something. Drax? Get Tony out of here.”

Peter doesn’t think much about his words. It’s just that Tony is always the first one on his mind. And he wants to protect him.

He gets shot another time and now he lays on the ground. The sticky net around him. Even Groot is captured with him.

“Oh no.” he hears a moment later and he knows its Rocket. And he also knows Rocket got struck, too.

“Gamora?” he asks because he can’t move and the bad guys are coming closer.

“Not a chance. I can’t move.” is her answer and Peter sighs. Great. He hopes Drax got Tony out.

*

“Dude! That hurts?!” says Peter when the alien throws him in a prison cell. Meh.

“I don’t think he cares.” answers Gamora who sits already on a bench. Her hands are tied behind her back with the same sticky material. Peter is tied up, too.

“Okay anybody hurt?” asks Peter because he may has a scratch but nothing else. Gamora shakes her head.

“I am Groot.” says Groot and sits down. His whole body is surrounded by the sticky gear.

“I still don’t know what you mean.” says Peter at that and Rocket groans.

“He said no. He is alright. They didn’t do anything beside tie us.” says Rocket then and Peter nods.

“Alright. Good. So i hope Drax got Tony out and they can…” Peter starts and then looks to his right.

“Hello Peter my friend.” says Drax, also tied up. Peter groans.

“I told you to protect Tony?” says Peter and Drax shrugs. Or he tries to shrug. Its hard with the sticky gear.

“He said he would save us.” answers Drax and Peter sighs. How is he gonna do that?

Peter rolls to his other side. Maybe he could get to Gamoras sword and…

“Missed me?” says a robotic voice and Peter sees Tony still in his armor on the other side of the bars.

“What the?” says Rocket and Tony lifts the faceplate.

“Hi.” says Tony softly and the smile he sends them is really cute.

“How did you do that?” asks Peter and Tony waves with his hand.

“Told you my new repulsers are pretty awesome.” answers Tony and then shows Peter how awesome they are. Because first he burns the bars down. Then carefully the sticky gear.

“And why are they awesome?” asks Rocket and holds his hand up. Tony high-fives him.

“Because you helped me.” answers Tony and grins back.

“Very sweet. Now we need to leave.” says Gamora and Peter agrees with her.

The way out is easy. Tony really knocked the bad guys out and Peter has to say he is really impressed.

“Good work.” says Drax and he pats Tony on the back. Even though Tony wears his armor he still trembles a bit under his hand.

“Thanks.” says Tony and because of his still open faceplate Peter can see the tiny blush.

When they discover that there isn’t anything to steal, they go back to the milano.

“Peter can i talk to you?” says Tony when the others are already inside. Peter nods.

“So uhm… why did you told Rocket and Drax to go with me and you know protect me?” asks Tony and now its Peters turn to blush.

“I just…i didn’t want you to get hurt.” mumbles Peter then and Tony nudges him with his elbow.

“You know that i’m Iron man right? I’m made out of iron.” grins Tony and Peter laughs.

“Okay okay i get it. You can protect yourself. Next mission you can pick a partner or be on your own if you genius have a better idea than my plan is.” answers Peter and Tony nods.

“Thank you. That means a lot.” says Tony and Peter smiles back at him.

He can’t help it. He knows how strong Tony is but he still likes it when he is protected.

“And Peter?” asks Tony and then trips on the ladder towards the ship.

Peter literally jumps forward and catches Tony in his arms. He breathes hard. Dude. That was really dangerous.

“Sometimes i still like it that you protect me.” grins Tony up at him and before Peter can do anything Tony kisses him right on the mouth.

Oh.

  • leo:
  • i've never been able to understand the way that you look at me like you are going to swallow me whole between sips of your coffee so sometimes/always i try to remind you that i'm poisonous and i always try to remind you that i'm defective and you always kiss me hard in the middle of my forehead and i think that's why i'll never stop loving you
  • virgo:
  • let's make a bet that in ten years i'll still be sleeping next to you every night and if you win and i'm not sleeping next to you every night then you get to break into my tastefully large and likely extremely expensive house and curl up beside me because you know i still save the left side of the bed for you and if i win and i'm still sleeping next to you every night then we'll call it even because i already have everything i've ever wanted

  • every time that you touch me i feel my skin go translucent under your finger tips and i remember what it is like to feel skin against my skin and i know that you can see right through me and i know that you know what I'm thinking but it doesn't really matter because i felt your skin against my skin and i know that nothing will feel real until you touch me again
  • Scorpio:
  • the last time that i saw you was in a dream and for some reason i thought that if i could talk to dream you then maybe dream you could give real you a message from me and i was just wondering if it worked and if it did then why haven't i heard from you so just in case it didn't work i told dream you to tell real you that i haven't forgotten us
  • Sagittarius:
  • have you ever wondered what would have happened if we had never met do you think that we would be okay like do you think that we would find happiness without each other because i was thinking about it and i think that i would still feel like something was missing even if i didn't know that it was my most important something
  • Capricorn:
  • So I'm sitting on the curb nursing another twisted knee and i realise that even though i know that you could leave me broken i will still follow you to the ends of the earth and through every stitched cut and relocated shoulder that would have never been dislocated if we had just stayed on the path like i had suggested i'll remember our first night when you taught me to nurse my wounds and fade old scars and it will be worth it
  • Aquarius:
  • sometimes i wish that i could burrow through your iris to the part of your skull where you feel all of the secrets and regrets slowly spilling into the stomach acid that you pretend you aren't choking on and i'm hoping that you'll find relief if i take some of the pressure but you have to let me in because i promise your demons don't scare me
  • Pisces:
  • you've always made the decisions when it comes to what we are going to eat or who's bed we're going to sleep in and i guess it's because i'm never really sure of anything and sometimes i'm afraid of what might happen if i make the wrong choice but with you i feel safe and i want you to know that even though i'm never really sure of anything i'm completely sure of this so maybe just trust me this time

caststone  asked:

I'm not very familiar with prompt etiquette so I hope this is ok! I'm a giant sucker for Jane Austen AUs/fusions so if you could do a Les Mis ExR ficlet with those two as Pride and Prejudice's Darcy and Elizabeth I'd just be over the moon about it! Background femslash pairings of any variety totally welcome! The old timey setting of the original book isn't necessary if you don't like it - a modern adaption would still be totally appreciated. <3

A scene each from the beginning, the middle, and the end. (I’m sure any P&P readers can make an educated guess.)


“You could dance with Grantaire.”

Grantaire is fully aware that eavesdropping never does anyone any good, but he can’t help tuning in at the sound of his name, vaguely recognizing the voice as Courfeyrac, who’s been flirting pretty shamelessly with both Marius and Cosette tonight.

“I don’t want to dance with Grantaire.”

And that’s Enjolras, and proof positive that eavesdroppers never hear any good of themselves. Grantaire knows precisely three things about Enjolras, and one of them is that he doesn’t want to dance with Grantaire (the other two being that he’s ridiculously gorgeous and some kind of cutthroat lawyer), and he doesn’t know what he’s done to earn that much vehemence.

dangercupcakemurdericing  asked:

Sasil prompts: Sally Ann introduces Hasil to the wonders of cinema, she seems like she'd have interesting taste in movies, she needs the escapism. I figure they'd have to to netflix or redbox it up, I don't imagine that town has a movie theater. Or if you wanted to write something where Sally Ann actually gets through to him about racism being a thing that she has to deal with, I'd love that, but it's harder/less fun to write things like that than fluff.

Sally-Ann crept past the treeline, stepping carefully under the green canopy of leaves as silently as she could manage. She could see him up ahead, about fifty yards or so, sitting on the overturned tree trunk, but he hadn’t noticed her yet. That was good: she had made it one of her goals to one day successfully sneak up on him and catch him by surprise. It hadn’t happened yet – he seemed to have an almost preternatural sense of hearing – but maybe today would be the day. 

They weren’t all that far from town, really – just a minute or two walk into the trees beyond the tiny parking lot of the Rev n’ Bev – but they had decided this would be their spot to meet when they could find the time to be together, on the days when Hasil could slip down from the mountain and Sally-Ann was finished up with work. And on those days, when James asked her when she would be home, she always gave him a time at least an hour or two past when she was actually scheduled to finish. This was their stolen time, a time that didn’t seem to really exist within the confined space of the real world. 

She was about twenty yards away now, and for a second, it seemed like he might have glimpsed her. So she tucked herself behind a tree, the rough bark biting through her cotton t-shirt, and then turned her head to sneak a quick glance at where he was sitting. 

But Hasil Farrell was nowhere to be seen. 

Suddenly against her side she felt the press of a warm palm and before she could turn around and scream, it pulled across her waist and she heard a whisper in her ear. 

“Hey, there…” She knew the voice immediately, his drawl soft and low, hitting her in all the right places. 

“Damn it, Hasil, you scared me,” she said, letting out a tiny sigh as she turned towards him. “How’d you know I was there, anyway?”

He gave her a half-grin as he pulled his hand away, his eyes bright with amusement. 

“I been huntin’ a long time, yeah? I know how to track somethin’ that’s followin’ me.”

“Fine, then,” she replied, feeling her cheeks growing warm in response to the way he was looking at her. “You tracked me. What’re you gonna do now?”

“Not sure yet. Gotta think ‘bout it…” She watched as his face shifted, like he was trying to figure out something. “In the meantime, can I ask ya a question?”

“‘Course,” she replied. “‘Bout what?”

“Well, see, I just come from my friend Butch’s place, and right ‘fore I left, he said he and his girl were plannin’ to Netflix an’ chill once I was gone. I didn’t really wan’ to ask ‘im what that meant – seems foolish, I know – but I thought I’d ask ya… So, uh, what’s that mean?”

She would have answered him more quickly, but it was hard with her hand pressed up against her mouth, as she tried to keep herself from laughing. She sometimes forgot that there was so much he didn’t know about the world – all those little things she took for granted – but she found it charming anyway, and for the most part she had enjoyed playing the role of his guide and instructor. He found such delight in everything – the first taste of the french fries from McDonald’s she had bought him, the videos and photos she had saved on her phone – and even with things that were harder to explain – 9/11, Black Lives Matter – he listened intently, doing his best to make sense of it in the ways he knew how. 

But how was she going to explain this one? Netflix and chill, indeed.

“Um, well, Netflix is a place you can watch movies…”

“Movin’ pictures?”

“Right, movin’ pictures,” she repeated, trying not to laugh again. “But you watch ‘em on a screen… a computer screen, in your house.”

“Ya watch movin’ pictures in your house?” he asked in confusion. “On a computer…?”

“Yeah, it’s…” She stopped, not knowing how to help him understand. “Look, why don’t I just show you?”

He nodded his agreement, and before long they had made their way up the hill to her house, the only place she could think of that was private and had decent WiFi. Luckily, James was gone all afternoon at a job fair in Pineville, and the place would be empty for a fair amount of time. She grabbed her old laptop from her room and found a seat next to Hasil on the couch, their bodies grazing as they settled against the cushions. 

She tried to think of what to show him – she didn’t want to overwhelm him with things that were too loud or had too many explosions, and anything too recent might talk about things he wouldn’t really understand. Quickly glancing over her “Continue Watching” list, she saw something she thought would probably work, one of her favorites, something she always watched when she wanted to escape from her life for a while. 

“Here, I think you’ll like this,” she said, hitting the play button. “It’s a classic. It’s from the 1960s.”

“They had movin’ pictures in the 1960s?” he asked, incredulous.

“Yeah, they’ve been ‘round a long time… Look, just watch, okay?” 

As the movie began, the title credits first appeared, and knowing that he had no idea what it said, she read it to him. 

“It’s called Vertigo. The director – the man who made it – his name was Alfred Hitchcock. Here…” she said, pointing at the screen. “Watch this beginning part. It’s good.” 

His eyes flicked over to the screen and she couldn’t help but watch him, his clear enchantment with the moving images never once appearing to fade. He seemed to be following the story line pretty well, only stopping to ask her questions once or twice along the way. It was only when they got to the part where the private investigator was driving across different parts of the city that she felt compelled to explain further.

“That’s San Francisco, Hasil,” she said. “It’s in California.”

“California?” he exclaimed. “I got a cousin that’s lived there. He don’t talk ‘bout it much, though. Ya ever been there?”

“No,” she answered. “I’ve never been outta Kentucky.”

He leaned his head back against the couch cushion, turning his face towards her, and he smiled sweetly.

“We’ll go one day, me an’ you. We’ll go to San Francisco. An’ we’ll walk on the beach an’ see the ocean.” 

He looked so sincere, and she wanted to believe him. She wanted to believe that somehow, simply through the power of his own faith in the two of them, they could be together – not hiding from his family or from hers, not afraid of being caught all the time, but free to find themselves in each other, free to love and be loved without any pretense or restraint. That feeling – that wanting – was so real, and it expanded so rapidly across her chest that she had little notion of what to do with it. So she did the only thing she thought might help: she leaned towards him and pressed her mouth against his. He responded quickly, instinctively, and it was only when she momentarily pulled back that he spoke.

“Whatcha doin’, Sally-Ann?” he asked slowly, his voice laced with heat.

“This is the ‘chill’ part of Netflix and chill, Hasil,” as she pushed his hair back and her mouth found the space between his neck and jaw, right below his earlobe.

“But… uh… what’s it gotta do with the movie?”

“Nothin’,” she replied, pulling away a little so he just felt the warmth of her breath on his skin. “You want me to stop?”

“Nah, it’s a’right,” he said, angling himself so he could grasp her waist in his hands, his mouth now searching for hers. “I think I may like this part the best…”

  • Twelve: [sees armies of Daleks flying out of a hole in the sky; starts opening every door in the apartment] CLARAAAA??

  • Clara: [still distant] Whaaat???
  • Twelve: Where. Is. My. TARDIS??
  • Clara: [looks up from stove] I, uh, parked it somewhere else.
  • Twelve: [goes around looking for it] WHERE?!
  • Clara: [goes back to cooking] Why do you need to know?!?
  • Twelve: [pokes head into the kitchen] I NEED IT! [goes off looking again]
  • Clara: Uh-uh! Don't you think about running off doing no daring-do. We've been planing this dinner for TWO MONTHS!
  • Twelve: [still looking for TARDIS] ALL OF TIME AND SPACE IS IN DANGER!
  • Clara: My evening's in danger.
  • Twelve: [frowning eyebrows] You tell me where my TARDIS is, IMPOSSIBLE GIRL! [eyebrows settle down] We are talking about the GREATER GOOD!
  • Clara: [comes out of the kitchen]"GREATER GOOD?" I'M YOUR WIFE! I'm the greatest good you're EVER gonna get. [sees Daleks in the sky] OH!
  • Twelve: [looks at Clara] Right. YOU actually said that!
  • Clara: You never mention that again. And, uh, I parked the TARDIS at the park. [Twelve glares at her] Oi, don't give me that face. I thought you'd run of and return at a different time, AGAIN.
  • [Pulls out his TARDIS key from her pocket. He glares at her again. The TARDIS materials and off these idiots go to save all of time and space for the greater good!]

anonymous asked:

Why don't you show your face? I mean, it's kinda interesting. Every other YouTuber I know has shown their face at least once, and yet you are a complete entity among them. I guess, like... I wouldn't really mind if you showed your face or not, because your videos and personality are great still, but I'd like to know the reason either way.

I guess a unique thing about the Internet I like is the ability to be formless. There is no “me”, there’s only a voice that laughs at video games. Well, also a couple of hands that show up every now and then. I like having that ability, and once you show yourself on camera, you can’t get it back. There’s never been a reason for me to appear, so I haven’t.

Not to mention, it’s something that I would need to save for my final video, where I point a webcam at myself, and you gasp as you see your own face on the screen! You look around yourself, and realize that you’re surrounded by a microphone, video game systems, and a video capture PC. How did you never notice it before. YOU WERE ME THE WHOLE TIME.
