i kinda make them to make it their banner or something idk

College!AU Hoseok
  • major: pre-veterinary 
  • minor: KSL/KSDSL (korean sign language minor: both ksl and ksdsl)
  • sports: swim team, also participates at rallies as a male cheerleader when they need him
  • clubs: big brother big sister (his little brother and sister are actually deaf and since he’s learning ksl he’s like a role model to them it’s super cute,,,)
  • hoseok has literally always been about helping others no matter what so his major was intended to be medical, like for humans, but after a while he decided he’d rather do pre-vet because he got inspired after learning about the importance of service animals especially to kids with disabilities
  • it’s also the reason he’s passionate about learning KSL. honestly, he would think it would be mandatory to learn by now (and he’s always trying to get the rest of his friends to learn it with him) because communication with everyone is important!!! it’s what builds friendships!!! 
  • and hoseok is pretty fluent in it, both KSL and KSDSL he’s taking the minor so he just improve his skills and also because he’s in the big brother big sister program with a local middle school and there’s these two twins who are deaf and he wants to be able to teach them and show them how to sign things correctly through KSDSL which is the manual translation of the korean alphabet and he just like he doesn’t want to make mistakes because he wants to keep being their role model but also KSL because it’s distnict and literally like learning a whole different language
  • and the twins /love/ him they just ADOre him especially since hoseok is studying to work with animals and is always telling them the coolest dog facts ever. also did you know dogs have 1,700 tastebuds anyway
  • and hoseok is also really athletic and has won medals for the campus swim team since he was a freshman. sometimes he dabbles in other sports teams unofficially with like the cheer leading squad if they’re short a person or even the dance team on campus with jimin and jungkook
  • and ofc whenever he has a met and the twins can make it they do and hoseok loves it when they hold up the little banners they make for him and honestly this dynamic of hoseok basically raising these two as his own siblings is so soft im crying while writing 
  • moving on though hoseok and you actually get to know each other because of the twins
  • see you’re doing work study as a way to help pay for your dorm and like usually the jobs you’re given are like library intern, filing for the administrations office, or even being a lab helper to some of the graduates but on your luck you got a job at the sports facility on campus taking stock of the equipment of the campus gym
  • and it’s like an easy job so you don’t complain (also all the campus athletes walking around shirtless is like a bonus BUT)
  •  and so it’s the day of a big swimming competition and since everyone’s at the pool you get to freely check the gym and locker rooms for the equipment but to your surprise you find two wandering kids and you’re like ??? 
  • and the girl sees you first and runs over holding the boys hand and you’re like hi!! are you lost?? and the girl kind of looks at you with wide eyes and you’re like??? and she’s like a bit panic struck now but she starts signing to the boy and he’s signing back and it clicks in your mind that oh ! that’s why she can’t understand you and you’re like ok ok think think 
  • and you look down at your clipboard in hand and flip over the page you were writing on and scribble down the question; “are you lost?” and squat down so you can show it to the girl
  • she reads and starts nodding and she reaches out and you hand her the clipboard and pen and she writes out “pool, hoseok?”
  • and you’re like ….hoseok ive heard that name before……….
  •  and then it comes to you – he’s the swimmer everyones excited for at todays meet and so you take the clipboard back and write down “I know where he is, follow me!” and the girl smiles and reaches up to take your hand with her free one and you’re like omf she’s so cute and her brother is so shy and it’s like you smile back and take them to where the pool is
  •  and it’s super packed, but you manage to squeeze your way into the front sections with the kids and there’s barely enough room but the girl just plops down in your lap and you’re like you know what im ok w this ive known these siblings for five minutes but honestly like how could you ever say no to cute kids
  •  but yeah she like takes a little banner out of her backpack and it says hoseok on it in kids handwriting and has little kitty faces drawn next to it and the boy, who you guess is her twin because they look so similar also has his little hoseok banner with puppy faces on it
  • and like you see hoseok, it’s kinda hard to miss him seeing as though he shines like the SUN both his smile and like his personality like he’s the one swimmer going around wishing everyone luck and patting everyone on the back and like
  • you know him from like seeing him on campus and his photos in the campus newspaper and stuff and like he’s incredibly handsome but now that you’re sitting here like watching him he just like
  • what’s a subtle way to say ‘fucking hot’ ????? yeah that’s hoseok
  •  but like you don’t focus too much on that you’re like dying because the two siblings are so cute, excitedly bouncing up and down and hoseok turns and he spots them and waves and they both like lean over the railing to wave back you have to like hold them steady you know how kids can be
  •  and like you stay with them the whole met because you want to make sure they’re safe and don’t get lost again and when it’s over the girl tugs on your sleeve and points down to where hoseok’s team (that won ofc) is standing and you immediately know that she wants to go and see him so you set her down and take her hand and her brother and lead them out off the bleachers toward the back where the swimmers are passing through to get to the locker room
  •  and like the second hoseok comes out with the towel around his neck, hair wet and like looking Fine
  • his smile just hits you because it’s so bright and he opens his arms and the kids just fULL GALLOP toward him 
  •  and you like sheepishly stand there because like lmao should I go??? but hoseok comes over and he’s like holding the girl up in his hands and the boys like clinging to his leg
  •  but hoseok is like signing something with his free hand to the girl and she’s like signing back her answer and he like grins and turns to you and is like
  •  “she said you helped them when they were lost. she also says she thinks you’re very pretty”
  • and you’re like oh well yes im glad i found the- pretty??!?!?! and hoseok is like chuckling like “she wanted to sign something more complicated I think she was going for mesmerizing but she messed up a bit and went with pretty, it’s cute she’s learning.”
  •  and one you’re extremely touched because wow mesmerizing??? pretty?? all these sweet compliments but like the thing is that hoseok is looking at you and he’s like
  • “you know I agree, they are very pretty and im also glad they helped you two…” and then he signs the rest and is like “I told them they’re little rascals who keep getting themselves into trouble like this.” and you giggle like ahh not rascals, these two are cute small angels
  •  And like hoseok is like im gonna take these two to get lunch, wanna come? and the girl is signing to hoseok that she wants you to come with you guys but you’re like I wish I have to finish work,,,,I kinda slacked off by watching the competition and hoseok is like oh my god im sorry if I would have known I would have asked like jin to come over and stay with them asjlfw im sorry let me make it up to you another day
  •  and you’re like wAH no it’s ok really ;;;; but hoseok is already extending his hand and is like do you have your phone on you??? let me give you my number and you can call me if you ever need someone to buy you some free food hehe
  • and idk maybe it’s the fact that hoseok is breathlessly charming that you give in and he puts his contact info in and the girl takes the phone from his hands for a second and changes ‘hoseok’ in your phone to ‘hobi (four thousand heart emojis)’ and it’s cute hoseok is like hey! let me change it- but you’re like no no it’s fine
  • and so you say bye to hoseok and the twins and like the whole time you’re like taking count of the equipment like you were supposed to be doing you’re all giddy inside
  • and like you fret over actually calling hoseok like a week passes and you’re just tOO scared to call
  • but you end up not even having to because on your way to the library you feel someone wrap their small hands around your wrist and you’re like !!!! 
  • but you look down and see the girl and her brother and from behind it’s hoseok running up to catch you guys
  • and you’re like oH hi!! and you like bend down to like smile at the twins and hoseok is like signing to them and he’s like “hEY sorry i was scolding them for running off like that but when she saw you she just haD to run to you,,,,,,,,,,like i said small rascals”
  • but he’s also grinning from ear to ear and you’re like yeah ok rascals that own your heart but you’re like “it’s good to see them again, can you ……..sign that to them for me hehe” and hoseok’s like no prob! and it’s cute you all have a little conversation and then hoseok is like actually im dropping these two off to see their parents and he invites you to walk toward like the parking lot campus and you know you do
  • and when the twin’s parents come the dad gets out of the car and like talks to hoseok about the big brother big sister program and whatnot and then turns to you and is like 
  • “ah i see hoseok is finally dating! what a good surprise, take care of him well!” 
  • and you’re like awe-struck like uM SIr aCTUALLy and hoseok is turning like a very bright red and is like “um we aren’t a couple-” but the dad is just like “you aren’t a couple YET” and is like laughing like anyway gtg see you tomorrow hoseok
  • and when they leave and the twins wave out of the car it’s you and hoseok standing beside each other like both flushed messes it’s cute
  • and hoseok is like “um,,,,,,,,by the way you never called,,,,,i was ,,,,kinda upset,,,,,,okmaybealotupset……..”
  • and you’re like im sorry ;; i was just shy and hoseok’s like don’t be shy!! i really wanted to see you again to you know……..pay you back and thank you…………..
  • in reality he wanted you to call him so yall could go on a cute lil date BUT 
  • and you’re like well ahh i mean if you’re free now-
  • and hoseok is like yes. yes im free. as free as ever. completely and utterly free.
  •  he’s like i know this little cafe in the city if you want we could go now it’s open pretty late and you’re like ok frick the library im going with hoseok
  • and like you guys take the train and somehow it isn’t awkward at all considering you’ve only talked in the past for like ten minutes but hoseok just makes everything so easy and natural
  • and like you tell him about your major and you’re super surprised when hoseok is like “im pre-vet!” and you’re like what i thought you’d be like ,,,,,,,,,studying to be a teacher or something and hoseok is laughing like “right??? everyone says that!! but i got into being a vet because of the importance of service animals. i think a lot of people benefit from them in ways that not even medicine can help.”
  • and as laidback and sometimes even childish hoseok can come off in his loud laugh and his manner of speaking and just being so inviting, hoseok ends up telling you some things that are really interesting and deep
  • like when you learn he started self-teaching himself KSL/KSDSL because he saw the way kids with disabilities were ostracized around him and he told you that people are way too focused on always pitying these people instead of learning ways to engage with them
  • you were just like holy shit 
  • because he’s so thoughtful and intelligent but so so so selfless it’s amazing you’re like how are you h u m a n
  • but you get to the cafe and to your surprise (but also excITMENt) it’s a puppy cafe and you and hoseok in like less than a minute are surrounded by yapping fluffy baby pups 
  • and you’re like hoseok im in heaven and he’s like it’s gr8 right!!!!!
  • you two bond cutely over feeding pups doggie snacks and sharing a ‘wooftastic watermelon smoothie’ 
  • and like when hoseok and you are going hoseok is like id love to walk you to your dorm but i actually have a late night study group for our big exam tomorrow so i need to head toward the otherside of campus
  • and you’re like don’t sweat it,,,,,,,,,,,,today was nice and hoseok is like ^^ yeah it was really nice
  • and you two are like covered slightly in dog hair but honestly it’s like getting dark, the sun is setting, you guys are standing kinda close
  • and hoseok is like this,,,,,,,,feels like the ending to a first date
  • and you’re like blushing like y-y-yeah 
  • and hoseok swallows and shifts from foot to foot like ,,,um,,,,do,,,,d-o you kiss on the first date??
  • and you’re like hglsafjlwaw  usually,,,,,,no but this one time - 
  • and hoseok is like really?? and you’re like yes please kiss me
  • and he does and it’s a peck like super soft, nothing too big but it’s adORAB L E and the second you head inside to your dorm you plant your face into the wall trying not to squeal and hoseok like has to do a lap around campus from the happiness he is feeling rn
  • and after that hoseok actually calls you a couple times to join him and the twins out for like some fun activities that are part of his club duties as their older brother
  • and you all go volunteering or to the amusement park or like indoor ice-skating
  • and finally one day you march down to the bookstore in the city and buy a beginners guide to KSL and the minute hoseok spots you studying with the book in the cafe, trying to make the signs and form coherent sentences he’s like
  • “they’re the One. I’m in LOVE.”
  • hoseok and the twins try to teach you some of the basics, the twins don’t really teach they’re like the judges of how understandable your signing is 
  • and hoseok is just super proud of you for sticking with it and taking an interest in it because like it means a lot to him
  • and like you guys aren’t “officially” dating until the twins sign the word “significant other” about you to hoseok and he’s like stuck and he looks at you and is like “they want to know if you’re my significant other?” and you’re like “am i?” and hoseok’s like “wanna be?” and you turn to the twins and sign “yes.”
  • it’s cute the twins tease hoseok all the time when you’re not around and even if you are and like you turn they sign something cute to him about you and hoseok has to like frantically sign for them to stop
  • but all you see is him flailing his hands 
  • the people around you are like ? and you’re like oh don’t mind it,,,,,,,,
  • you were going to go out with hoseok after one of his labs and he comes out in the white overcoat and you’re like oooooOOOO fancy doctor jung OOOOOO and hoseok was like SHH and you’re like OOOO doctor jung~~~ for the rest of the week
  • it caught on and literally jin, namjoon, jungkook, jimin, yoongi, and taehyung refused to call him anything but that
  • “doctor jung pass the controller to the xbox!!” “doctor jung how was your test?” “doctor jung im sick take my temp-” “STOP calling me THAt also im training to be a veterinarian jungkook you’re not a dog.”
  • yoongi: “he’s pretty close to a dog though-” jungkook: “look whose talking, sloth.” yoongi: BOY
  • its adorable you like come to cheer him on when he’s swimming or even like cheerleading or dancing whatever he has on his schedule 
  • and hoseok is aLWAYS there for you
  • like it doesn’t matter what he’s got going on his care for you is so important to him that if you need him to run to you and like climb up the side of your dorm to deliver some ice cream or something like hoseok will do it
  • he’d literally stay up studying with you all night even if he had 6:00 am lab in the morning
  • and like you know he can overdo it with his care and you are always scared someone might use him because he’s so willing to help out and you’re like

  • you got better at signing and he signs to you like “these losers are jealous cuz you’re so cute and you’re all mine” and you’re like hoseok shush,,,,,,,,,but TRUE
  • and one day after he has another swimming competition and the twins had to go because it ended close to 10 pm and all the swimmers are like bye hoseok we’re gonna go home because rip this was so long

Dating Leonard Snart Questions


Dating Peter Maximoff Questions

diamondblueuniverse  asked:

Excuse me. I was wondering what type of story telling methods you use? I noticed you have quite an intricate way of telling stories. I was wondering what comes to mind or what you apply to a story you make up.

I don’t know if I have a method, actually?  Hahaha.  I’d be interested to know what you think is intricate though, hahshdfh.

Generally speaking you can use the Three-Act Structure as a good basis for telling a coherent story, but obviously there are other ways to do it.

I have a tag called #important film stuff where I’ve been reblogging posts about film and storytelling and junk.  You might wanna’ check that out too!

The closest thing I have to a method involves this:

1. Introduce main character/characters in a way that is entertaining, active, and catches people’s attention.  Don’t start on something boring and overdone like a morning routine, unless you’re specifically setting out to deconstruct that trope.

2.  Let that character have a few moments of acting.  People like to see characters with personality, flaws, quirks, habits.  It makes them interesting and relatable.  

3.  Don’t bore people with exposition.  If you have to drop an exposition bomb, at least find an interesting way to do it.  Maybe you get the information you need from a newscaster on TV in the background, or a banner hanging on a wall.  (I’m actually really bad at this.  Half of W2H is just Mephistopheles standing there explaining shit.)


5.  Your conflict can come from an internal force or an external force, or both.  Sock’s conflict is internal.  I think having an internal conflict makes characters more relatable and enjoyable, so even if I’m using both, I like to focus more on the internal conflict.  I’d never write a story that was exclusively external conflict.  Not saying it can’t be done, or done WELL, I’m just saying that I’m not particularly interested in writing them.  
(Side note: One of my favorite movies is Cloverfield, don’t laugh.  It’s a disaster movie, so the conflict is external, but the thing that drives the story isn’t the giant monster attacking the town; it’s the characters actively deciding to go back for their friend rather than run for their lives.  The last line of boring teenage partying before the monster attacks is literally “you gotta learn to say ‘fuck the world’, and hang on tight to the people you love”.  And that’s precisely how the movie ends, the world collapsing around two people in love.  That’s literally all it takes to get me to give a shit about a disaster movie. Simple stuff.)

6.  This is kind of a follow up, but characters should have relatively clear motives.  You can definitely write a character who’s motives are intentionally unclear, but it would have to be for a specific reason; either they’re the villain, or they’re an anti-hero, or their identity is actually a secret and you’ll reveal it later. You shouldn’t just have a character do something aimlessly.  Even a character who’s whole shtick is wandering aimlessly and having wacky adventures has a motive: living life to it’s fullest.  Don’t let characters just be plot devices!  I think this is especially handy for writing good villains; why do they want to take over the world?  No one just wants to take over the world for no reason.  The only exception for a character just being evil for the sake of being evil is MAAAAYBE, maybe if they’re the Devil.  (And even then, idk, I put probably more thought into Mephistopheles’ backstory than I have any other character.  No excuses!)  Bottom line:  If you’re writing a character-heavy story, let the characters drive the plot.  

7.  This one isn’t mine, this is actually something Matt Stone and Trey Parker said, but I think it’s good:  When you’re writing a story, write out a little summary or a chart of what happens, chronologically.  If you find yourself putting mostly “and then”, “and then”, “and then”, between plot points, go back and start over.  You should be able to put “BUT then”, and “therefore” between most of your plot points.  Characters actions should have a clear cause and effect on the story.  Otherwise it’s just a bunch of random shit happening.

8.  This is probably kind of pandering and horrible, and it’s definitely one of my biggest self-critiques, but I tend to write characters with the knowledge that I’m giving the audience a little bit of shipping fuel, and that’s going to help them care about their relationship.  I mean, I’d obviously draw the line at deliberate queer-baiting or whatever, but if your story DEPENDS on establishing characters’ feelings for each other, sometimes all it takes is a smile or a laugh or a blushu.  They don’t even need to share ~a moment~, it can be something really stupid and simple.  Audiences will pick that shit up, even if it’s subtle.  The kind of audiences who are THIRSTY for it will pick it up and run with it and never let it go.  (This can probably work with any relationship.  It doesn’t need to be romantic.)

9.  Plants and Payoffs!!  You can drop something early on in the story and then have it sprout up again towards the end.  Maybe a character learns a piece of information and then uses it towards the climax, or maybe it’s something simple like a joke or a conversation between two characters that one of them experiences first hand later on.  Little ways to tie the elements of the story together!  (In W2H, you might consider Meph’s puns a plant and payoff, though not a very satisfying one.  Sock gets used to hearing him make dumb jokes, so he assumes Meph’s always joking.  At the end, he wasn’t.)

10.  I like endings that aren’t 100% happy?  I like endings that have a little bit of compromise, or leave you wanting more, or leave you FEELING a THING, really strongly.  That thing doesn’t necessarily have to be a sparkly happy thing though.  BUT!! It also kinda depends on the story?  I liked Warm Bodies because it was basically the reverse of that; they took the bleak zombie apocalypse movie that I’m getting super bored with and turned it into a charming thing with a positive outlook.  It’s still apocalyptic and spooky but it’s also fucking adorable???  Idk.  It’s just nice to be surprised and caught off guard every now and then.

I’VE HAD THIS OPEN FOR LIKE … 2 OR 3 DAYS??? I keep coming back to write more and I could probably keep going but I’m gonna’ stop.  Idk if this helps, like, LITERALLy at all.  But there you have it!  Those are some things that I think are good to know about storytelling.  It’s definitely not a rulebook and it’s definitely not thorough, but I hope it helps!

So this is kinda specific to history since I’ve only taken textbook notes for history?? and I’ve only used this system with 1 textbook so idk how it works with other ones??

Finding the system that works for you is really just a ton of experimenting. This system is 1 ½ years of changing and a lot of using the wrong pen. 

  • Color Code: 
    • Pink=Dates
    • Blue=People
    • Red=Main Header
    • Black=Sub-Header
    • For AP Euro we had People&Terms we had to know (and were supposed to be tested on but my teacher sucked) so I highlighted that in Green
    • I also put banners around headers 
    • I do this bc I legit cannot look at a whole page of text without  my eyes zoning out on their own plus I’m a visual learner and aesthetically pleasing notes motivates me to actually use them to study and wanting to do this makes it so that I can actually read them
  • I usually read over a paragraph and then make a summary sentence as a main bullet point and any important details as sub bullet        
  • So I use the Cornell Method and after a year I finally found a way to properly use the side bar
    • Notes of things to look up so that you don’t lose focus 
    • Connections to other events
      • how this event lead/caused another event or was caused by a past event
    • Why it’s important/the significance 
    • Questions that will help you study
    • Things that will help you remember it
      • Like mnemonic  devices or writing down the part in the History of Japan meme about WWI (and yes I really did that and I would have also done WWII but I didn’t get that far in the notes and my teacher didn’t even get to that unit b4 the AP test but more importantly if you haven’t seen it go watch it on youtube pls)
    • If your teacher actually teaches at all then they’ll at least go over something in the textbook and if they do you can add it in the sidebar 

coloringpencils  asked:

Headcanons of Izzy roping Jace, Clary, Simon and Lydia into trying to plan the perfect wedding for Magnus and Alec (because I know she woud probs try and do it herself, and they all want to surprise the two of them)

you got it!

  • Clary makes a rune especially for Alec and Magnus one that Magnus can bear kinda like the binding rune in city of Glass. 
  • Izzy completly takes charge and spends days just yelling orders at everyone
  • She’s super organised and everyone has a set job and everything has a set time and if it’s not done on time iz can get pretty scary
  • Clary, Izzy and Lydia sneaking off to go cake tasting for a whole day even though Alec and Magnus said they werent allowed to make those decisions, they just went to eat cake and shop for bridesmaid dresses 
  • Meanwhile the boys were left at home licking envelopes
  • Clary hand paints banners and makes the figurines for the cake so they look like Magnus and Alec, Simon helps
  • Clary does calligraphy on all the invitations and has to spend hours at it, the others try to help her but she ends up being like “omg you’re so bad at this! is that supposed to be an O? it looks like a boob, ugh get out I’d rather stay up all night doing this than put my name on that
  • Alec’s like “can I not just wear the suit I wore to my first wedding” and Lydia’s like “…..no and don’t call it your first wedding you literally left me at the alter to make go out with your boyfriend, you’re getting a new suit”
  • Jace and Simon helping Alec with his new suit
  • Clary wanting to add in some mundane traditions and covincing izzy to add something old, new, borrowed and blue into the decor.
  • something old = Magnus something new = Alec
  • Instead of seperate bachelor parties they surprises them with a big joint party with all their friends, Alec may or may not have gotten a bit drunk and gave Magnus a lapdance.
  • Jace and Simon write best men speeches but Jace forbids simon from adding anything nerdy because he saw his fanboying at the branwood wedding. Simon fanboys anyway
  • Magnus tried to get involved with organising but Izzy would not allow that. “If I let you organise it you would blow our whole budget on glitter and alcohol”
  • he does collaborate with Izzy on the decorations a little bit though and makes sure to incorporate Alec’s style in as well as his own, but he doesnt tell him anything because he wants it to be a surprise
  • Everyone rushing around in the morning, Lydia doing everyones hair, Izzy doing makeup. Jace and Simon make breakfast. Clary is still on strike after spending days writing those fricking invitations
  • Magnus and Alec write their own vows and everyone cries. Especially Simon
  • JEM AKA BROTHER ZACHARIAH MARRIES THEM I mean he’s just like “its has to be me guys”

Idk if this is what you really wanted lmao but i hope you like it! Also big thank you to my fave and saviour @mustafaisaiah for helping me out with some of these (specifically 1/6/13/15/18) and for inspiring me

Requested by Anonymous: Hi! I was wondering if you could do a StevexReader where reader works with Tony and Bruce in the lab and is kinda intimidated by Steve bc idk he’s tall and just great and she feels like he could really make her feel small and horrible and she’s just kinda scared of that. But Steve notices her and always says hi to her and stuff but she’s kinda jittery and just acts like a scared rabbit like all the time and then one day Steve confronts her. (going to continue this bc submitting is scary idk) After some prodding, reader is honest with Steve, and he kinda feels bad because he kinda knows what it’s like to feel the way that reader feels. And then he just reassures her that he wouldn’t put her down or be mean to her. And yeah, fluff. Sorry if that’s really weird and confusing.

Pairing: Platonic Steve Rogers x Reader

Words: 1809

It started on your first day working with the Avengers. Your father has always been a fan of Captain America, him being the World’s First Superhero. You were raised in a Captain America household. You read your father’s comic books, and he would tell you stories about the star spangled man with a plan. You knew that you would never be as good as Captain America.

When your father got you a job in SHIELD, you were ecstatic. You were always a fan of science, but when facing college, you didn’t know what you wanted to do. You decided to major in physics, and in physics, the lesson about electrical engineering came to you with ease. So when you were done with that, you went into electrical engineering.

That is why a job in SHIELD was perfect for you. You were just an average worker in the science department, and you did your job so well. And that’s when you caught the attention of one Tony Stark.

You were so surprised that it happened that you were just waiting for someone to wake you up. But it has been two months, and you were still in this marvelous dream.

You got to know the team really well, connecting with each and every one of them. Everyone, except Steve. You wanted to get to know his so badly. Your father made you into the crazy fan you are today. You wanted to ask about his experiences in WWII with his times with the Howling Commandos. You wanted to comfort him with his loss of Bucky Barnes, Peggy Carter, and his youth.

You longed for these long conversations, but you couldn’t even hold a single small-talk conservation. One look of him, and you freeze. Inside, you are fangirling so hard. Even though, it’s been months of being a co-worker of his.

anonymous asked:

Can I ask for a Marvel AU? ;_; Who would their superhero alter egos be? You can include headcanons or anything as well! (GoM + Kagami + Takao + Imayoshi + Haizaki)

i didn’t know i needed this until you sent it in damnn

rest under a read more bc it’s a bit long

Akashi: ‘Absolute’ (not sorry) - can fly and see into the future (through his dreams). His precognition also extends to predicting his opponents moves. He can predict moves much better than he can see into the future in terms of dreams, which are often unreliable and/or ambiguous. Thinks he looks good in all red that matches his hair but he doesn’t really.

Aomine: ‘Black Panther’ - super speed and agility with heightened reflexes! He’s also stronger than the average guy, although he doesn’t have enhanced strength. His suit is midnight blue all over and he’s known to sit in front of a mirror, admiring himself. Regularly gets into fights with Kagami about everything, from whose superpower is better to who can beat up the most baddies.

Imayoshi: he’s the guy that no one actually trusts because they think he’s actually working for the enemy. Wears a mask 102% of the time and trusts no one. Doesn’t actually stick to one side, floats around - he’s there one second and gone the next. People call him ‘Ghost’ or ‘The Drifter’ but he doesn’t actually have a proper alias. Has telekinesis, is super smart and relies on body language to tell what one is thinking. Can fight pretty well, too.
