pairings/characters: papasuke, sarada
summary: you’re nothing like your mother; everything like your mother
author’s note: sasuke has recently returned to konoha (permanently) and has begun to train with boruto. sarada is around 14 here and a chuunin. ps: feedback is always much appreciated:)

Sasuke Uchiha sits perched in a tree, high above the west side training grounds of Konoha, reserved for newly minted chuunin. He watches his daughter and her team train as Konohamaru Sarutobi shouts about them staying in formation. He asses the children and reasons that the team is well balanced; each child holds their own strengths and their weaknesses are counteracted by the abilities of their teammates.

Naruto’s dobe—son—tellingly, is the most gifted when it comes to chakra. He’s proficient in his taijutsu skills, unlike Naruto, thanks to Hiashi Hyuga who’d rather be damned than have his grandson be clueless as to even the most basic secrets of the gentle fist. In his time training with Sasuke, he’s been able to perfect his rasengan; it varies slightly in chakra nature from his father’s and the Fourth Hokage’s, but it’s powerful nonetheless, and he wields it with confidence as if he created the jutsu himself. Sasuke had to hand it to him, despite his cluelessness, recklessness and stupidity, Boruto was confident and brave—definitely his father’s son.

Mitsuki’s skill is slimy, gruesome and leaves even Sasuke with the slightest pang discomfort. How or when Oorchimaru taught his spawn the body distortion techniques he used so frequently (and frighteningly, Sasuke recalls), was beyond him. The blue haired boy was as precise as he was mysterious, and despite the vivid, raw memories of his old mentor flooding back to him with every move Mitsuki made, Sasuke couldn’t help but feel bad for the boy. He was clearly talented, but he couldn’t imagine how cautious others must have been of him—scary talent wasn’t always as cracked up as it seemed in the shinobi world.

Then there was Sarada, who, he’d never admit to, but, watched over a bit more carefully than the others. He watched as she trained with the diligence, poise and perfection expected of an Uchiha and wielded the same chakra control and fiery spirit of her mother. Fireballs flew from her lips with as much ease as the ground shattered below her fists. She threw shuriken with scary accuracy and spun her sharingan in a way that left Sasuke with no doubt that she had Itachi’s eyes. She weaved through training dummies with a chidori that chirped more violently than his own while her long, dark hair flew behind her.

And Sasuke smiled. He was full to the brim with a kind of pride he never thought he’d feel again—the kind when you’re so proud of your family that it leaves a visible smile that stains your heart forever. He hasn’t felt this way since Itachi was in his life, but he knows what he’s feeling now is even more abundant than the love and pride he felt as a genin baby brother, because Sarada is his daughter, his flesh and blood, and in the simplest of words, she’s incredible.

“Ready?” Lili asked.

I nodded my head with a yawn. “Yep let’s get this show on the road.”

Lili tapped the button on her Instagram page that started a live stream. The number in the top right corner started increasing rapidly.  “Hey what’s up guys? I’m here with my dear friend (Y/N) this morning and we are at the airport waiting for our plane to board.”

“It’s raging yo,” I added waving a peace sign.

“No guys but seriously this airport couldn’t be more dead. It is,” Lilli stopped talking and checked her watch. “6:07 am and our flight is scheduled to take off at 6:45. So we figured why not answer some questions while we sit and wait for the rest of the cast to show up.”

I nodded my head in agreement. “Yea so send us any questions you have for us and we’ll try to answer them. Also, why are there over a thousand people watching this right now? Go to bed guys there’s no need to be up this early on a Saturday.”

Chapter 6 (Part 1): The Ice Queen {Avengers x Fem!Reader}

~Part 1~ The Life of an Avenger

Prompt: War on the Helicarrier. After Hawkeye blows up the side of the ship, the Avengers finally see the real power of (Y/N).

Warnings: cursing

Steve heaved the door wide open to reveal a room overflowing with SHIELD intel, and motioned for (Y/N) to walk in.

“Ladies first.” He indicated.

“Such a goddamn gentlemen. The 40’s taught you well.” (Y/N) commented as she walked passed him.

Immediately overwhelmed by her curiosity, (Y/N) didn’t know where to look first. Millions upon billions of boxes filled to the brim with top-secret information that she wasn’t supposed to know. (‘Yep time to rip all these bitches apart.’) She almost keeled over from pure excitement.

“So, Russian Roulette: choose a box.” She motioned to Steve. He took a long sweep with his blue eyes, then a specific box on the second floor caught his attention. And, like a fucking jungle cat, he catapulted from his spot to the top level. No effort, just ground to not ground. Although (Y/N) wasn’t a Super Soldier (despite those animals desiring her to become so), she could climb most anything. Over fences to evade cops after stealing food, into her friend’s five-story apartment in Berlin, or up a tree in Brazil after her group got lost in the Amazon jungle for an hour. Steve turned to expect (Y/N) far below him, but was shocked to find her gracefully making her way up to the second floor. He held out a hand to her, and she gladly accepted. Steve then led (Y/N) over to the box he had singled out, and opened it to reveal gas masks and other sorts of guns and weapons.

“Nice choice,” (Y/N) remarked, patting him on the shoulder. Steve thanked her with a smirk as he picked up a labeled diagram of the Tesseract’s power being absorbed by the weapon next to (Y/N)’s hand. She took a small step back, remembering her two incidents earlier that day.

“Looks like SHIELD’s been busy,” Steve noted, “And it doesn’t look like they’re going to stop anytime soon. I don’t know what these will be used for, but I’m not sure I really want to see them in action.”

"Agreed.” (Y/N) contended. Steve and (Y/N) then jumped from the second level of the room, and marched to the lab to show Bruce and Tony what they had found. But, even luckier, Fury had decided to show up to the tea party.

"What is phase 2?” Tony questioned Fury as Steve and (Y/N) walked in. Steve dropped the weapon on the table.

"Phase 2 is SHIELD uses the cube to make weapons. Sorry, the computer was moving too slow.” Steve announced. Nick tried explain away the whole situation, but nobody was having any if it.

"Last year, earth had a visitor from another planet who had a grudge match that leveled a small town. We learned that not only are we not alone, but we are hopelessly, hilariously, outgunned.”

"My people want nothing, but peace with your planet.” Thor answered sincerely.

"But you’re not the only people out there, are you? And, you’re not the only threat. The world’s filling up with people who can’t be matched, they can’t be controlled.” Fury asserted as he took a quick, shady glance at (Y/N).

"Yeah, yeah. Phil told me. You don’t want me here, because I don’t follow orders or play by the government’s rules or whatever. You can come out and say it instead of giving me shady glances.”

"This isn’t the government, (Y/N),” Fury responded, irritated.

“Sure seems like it. Trying to control anything and everything that breathes because they may cause a threat in the future. Well, guess what. They only pose a threat if you give them a cause to threaten you. If you fill up the world with ammunition, and prepare for a war, don’t be shocked when you get a goddamn war.” The room went silent for a moment, but Fury quickly broke it.

"We’re not trying to control anyone. This is a means of protection.”

"Really? Because I recall you controlling the cube very well, until you didn’t.” Steve argued. Everyone had Fury pegged, but he continued to attempt to argue his case anyway. At first, everyone seemed allied against Fury, but then things got ugly, and EVERYONE turned on each other. Banner vs Natasha. Thor vs Fury. Steve vs Tony. Tony vs Fury. Fury vs Steve. Steve vs Tony…again.

Then, there was (Y/N). The ego war was stupid, and she wasn’t having any of it. She found Tony’s unfinished bag of blueberries on one of the lab tables, then sat in a chair and watched, completely amused, as everyone ripped each other to shreds while popping the berries in her mouth like popcorn. (Y/N) even put her boots on the table in front of her and laughed a few times out loud. All were entertaining, but Steve vs Tony was her favorite program.

"Big man in a suit of armor. Take that off, what are you?” Steve challenged.

"Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist.” ‘With an ego the size of an SVU.’ (Y/N) added in her head. The tension continued to build, until Bruce admitted to a suicide attempt. That struck a cord with (Y/N). After “the accident” and “the incident,” she had some pretty dark thoughts, but never acted on them. She loved her mom and her brother too much for that.

"You know my secret, Agent Romanoff? You wanna know how I stay calm?” Then everyone reached for their weapons, and (Y/N) snapped out of her thoughts, instantly on high alert. Then she saw Bruce’s hand.

"Doctor Banner…put down the scepter.” Bruce looked down, shocked at his own actions, but quickly released it when a beeping started on one of the monitors.

"Sorry, kids. You don’t get to see my party trick after all.” (Y/N) thought the tension would’ve diffused, but no.

That didn’t happen.

Steve and Tony were about to get in the ring and take a few shots at each other, when Bruce whispered in disbelief, “Oh my god!”

Suddenly, the lab was on fire, burning like the sun. (Y/N) didn’t hear it coming; actually, she couldn’t hear anything at all for a few extremely terrifying seconds. Everything was burning. She felt a shard of glass buried in her cheek, and pulled it out. It was larger in her hand than she thought it would’ve been, but (Y/N) didn’t care. Things like that didn’t bother her anymore. She felt someone’s hand on her arm, helping her as she tried to get up.

"Is Lady (Y/L/N) alright?” She looked up, a bit dazed, at him for a second, then shook it off.

"Fuck yeah. Lady (Y/L/N) is great. Unfortunately, I don’t think the ship could say the same thing. Ready to kick some ass?” (Y/N) declared.

"I am always ready for a fight.” Thor professed to (Y/N). She smirked back, and together, they sprinted out into the corridor towards the hangar. They were met with easy targets…ehem, Loki’s brainwashed men.* Thor and (Y/N) only fought to knock out the victims of Loki’s spell, not to kill them. The “fight” was unbelievably easy.

Until there was The Hulk.

OUAT Bosses Shed Some Light on Season 6's Big Mystery
Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowtiz break down the premiere of the new season of the ABC hit

Who. Kills. Emma?!

That’s the question on everyone’s mind after that shocking scene in the season premiere of Once Upon a Time that gave us a glimpse of the Savior’s eventual very unhappy ending, stabbed by a hooded figure in the middle of Storybrooke as her family look on in horror. And it’s certainly one that will be on Emma’s (Jennifer Morrison) mind as the season progresses. But could the show ever truly go through with killing her off? Co-creators Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz sure want you to think so.

“I would say that that is a question that we are posing,” Kitsis told reporters following a screening of the premiere episode. “And we have seen that I guess that’s what we’re going to explore this season.”

“I’d also add that the show remains a show about hope,” Horowitz cautioned.

As Kitsis explained it, the mystery surrounding Emma’s fate is a way for them to really dig into the complicated character this season. “I think what we really wanted to do was get inside Emma’s head,” he explained. “We’ve seen her grow and fight in all these travels, and we thought, well, what would happen if you really did all this? Is it fair to return the happy endings of everyone else and then be told yours doesn’t come? Would you still keep doing your job? Would you be doing it out of sake of duty or because you believe in it?”

And if you think you know when the show will reveal all based on the formula the show’s settled into over the past few seasons, think again. “This year’s going to be surprising because there are things that happen throughout that you don’t think because the pattern of the show usually is a villain comes to town and then we defeat Hyde in 10, and then the last thing, we show you what the next thing is, and we’re not doing that this year,” Kitsis said. “We are just telling the stories.”

Of course, Emma’s dark future was hardly the only major development in the premiere.

or, the fireman!Kara supercat AU ficlet that no one asked for, but I couldn’t get out of my head ever since @supergirltosavethegay​‘s complete unfair manip based on @kara-lesbihonest​ and @lishesque​‘s idea 

so thanks for that guys

When Cat came to, her head was pounding almost too much to bother opening her eyes.  Her body was lying awkwardly, flat against a hard, cold surface and her breathing was uneasy.  It took a moment before sound faded in, but when her ears got past the buzzing, they picked up a unexpected cacophony – sirens, cars zooming by, and the unmistakable clamor of bystanders. Cat’s least favorite kind of people.

She decided instantly that she was having far too much trouble remembering how she managed to get to that moment, so, savoring the peace of closed eyes for one last moment, she dragged her lids back, lips prepared to demand an explanation.

Her lips never made it that far. Before she could protest, a blonde woman swiftly leaned down over her and suddenly her lips were quite occupied.

Book review: Carry On

Author: Rainbow Rowell

Pages: 522

Published: 2015

Genre: fantasy

There’s a million things I want to say about this book, but the most important is that I LOVED IT WITH MY WHOLE HEART AND I’M OBSESSED WITH THIS WORLD AND THESE CHARACTERS.

I have to admit I had my doubts. In fact I wasn’t even planning on reading this, even though Rainbow Rowell is one of my favorite authors ever. I honestly thought I wasn’t going to like Carry On, because the Simon parts weren’t my favorite parts of Fangirl (I love Levi and Cath too much). But honestly being inside this world, seeing Simon and Baz trying to solve this mystery, reading all their shared story from all their years in Watford, I was completely sold.

In typical Rainbow Rowell fashion, this book is extremely hilarious, the drama is intense, you will fall in love with all the characters, and you will be immersed in the story head over heels. I dare you not to become obsessed with this book. It’s impossible not to, it’s THAT good.  

Its strongest quality was the world building. Watford is AMAZING! Though it’s obviously inspired by Hogwarts, it feels different, especially considering the magic system. In the World of Mages there’s an elected leader that guides a council of magical families. Also, to do spells, you access magic, like magic was actually an element or power inside you. There are places that were sucked or dried of magic, so you can’t access your magic there, you’re defenseless and weak. This definition of magic reminded of the ancient earth magic, that you accessed through the elements of nature. But it has its own twist, considering the Humdrum. Also, the spells are really cool, because they allow the characters to manipulate abilities and situations, depending on the words. They can be hilarious, as Queen songs, or eerie as children’s lullabies. It’s just a great system. Also Watford as a boarding school has a lot of unique, really interesting and cool elements of its own: the Anathema, the Crucible, the catacombs, the chapel, the nursery.

One of the things I liked the most was the multiple POVs. There were so many interesting characters and it was such a great idea to explore them all, not just Simon being the Chosen One. In the beginning I liked them because there were similar to many beloved characters in Harry Potter (Baz and Penelope especially since Draco and Hermione are my favorites, also Ebb being a Hagrid figure, the Mage being similar to Dumbledore, but darker, crazier, more power-hungry, which was, as we know, one of younger-Dumbledore’s biggest flaws). But then they started developing in their own way and they had their uniqueness and character growth completely aside from the similarities of any HP character. How much we got to know and see and understand these characters, their stories, their desires, their thoughts, and their pains, was one of the strongest parts of the book. You can’t help but love them, or hate them, either way you get attached to them and you crave more of their stories.

Take Agatha for example. At first I really disliked her for being so indecisive. Then I worried I was being too judgmental especially since it’s common in male-focused stories to make the girls indecisive or weak or whiny. So now I think she chose her own destiny, instead of the destiny it was chosen for her (Simon’s girlfriend, the golden sweet perfect beautiful girl, rich magical socialite). She made the best choice to achieve her happiness. Not choosing magic or Simon or her mom’s club it’s actually a great message, she became her own person with her own path, even if it wasn’t what the rest of the characters, or we as readers, liked. 

Baz. My dear, precious, arrogant, tortured Baz. How much I adored him, how much I felt his pain over his circumstances, his love for Simon, his self-hate, his need to understand what happened to his mom and to himself. He’s such a great character, because it’s undeniable he’s meant to be the antagonist, he’s a vampire, he’s arrogant and rich and old blood, and he’s fought with Simon since they first met. But throughout the book, and the discoveries they make, and his POV chapters, despite his “evil” nature and family’s pressure and his need to avenge his mom, he grows so much, and actually becomes the reassuring one, he helps Simon, he calms him down, he becomes a hero. I honestly could write an essay on how Rainbow Rowell took all Draco’s best and worst traits and created an incredible character that stands on its own, without being a carbon copy. He’s amazing. Also, him and Simon are completely adorable and amazing, and they gave me the biggest feels ever, I literally squealed when they got together.

I also loved how Rainbow Rowell took the Chosen One trope and turned it around. Simon is literally prophesied to be the greatest, most powerful magician ever and he’s meant to stop the greatest threat to magic ever known. But throughout the book we see the consequences of Simon’s power. It’s not like Harry’s, whose reason to sacrifice himself is bravery and love and caring, Simon’s is actually dangerous, his power is so unsurmountable he’s a threat to everyone around him and magic itself. That’s one of the greatest elements of this book, how explosive Simon is, the Chosen Ones are supposed to be good and sacrificial and steady, oh no, Simon is a bomb, and that poses a complication in his battle with the Humdrum and the saving of the World of Mages. Also the final battle and the resolution to the conflict? EPIC! That’s all I’m going to say, I didn’t see that coming, and it was as mind-blowing as the battle and ending in Deathly Hallows.

The mysteries and stories they uncover in the book were incredible. The complicated twists and tragedies they discovered were worthy of JK Rowling herself. The past before Baz and Simon was crazy good; Nicodemus, Lucy, Ebb, Davy, seeing their stories made me cry, made me gasp, that was probably one of the parts that reminded me the most of Harry Potter. Because it’s exactly the kind of tragic backstory Harry would have to uncover to understand what was happening with him. It not only helps Penny and Simon and Baz join all the pieces of the puzzle, but it shows how love is stronger that power.

I’m going to stop this essay now. Needlessly to say, I adore this book just as much as Fangirl, and I didn’t think that was possible, considering that’s my favorite book EVER. But Carry On is just as good.
