Tony Stark was head over heels in love. He was so beyond in love with you, in his eyes you were perfect. You were the first woman that Tony saw after Pepper walked out on him. At first, the team was happy for Tony, you seemed to accept the fact that he was Iron Man and at times he would have to leave you for the job. But, within a matter of days, Tony came into the common room announcing to the rest of the team that he was in love with you and that he has already asked for you to move to the tower. The team was too dumbfounded to respond, and the next day they saw Tony carrying your stuff to his room. That’s when the team started to feel weary of you. Natasha was the first to voice her concerns, you seemed too perfect to her, and after running a thorough background check on you, she told the team that you were nothing more than a gold digger.
Captain was shocked at this conclusion and tried to reason with Natasha but once she laid out the proof it was convincing. You were a college dropout, who had been working at a small coffee shop on the outskirts of town getting harassed by loan collectors. You only had about a thousand dollars in your bank account before Tony and you had gotten together. After you moved in, your bank statement and living style completely changed. There was a steady income of 1000 dollars coming into your account every week, and the loans had been paid off as well. Though Bucky and Steve argued that you could have gotten a new job or something to explain the sudden rise of wealth, Nat pointed out that of the weeks you had been staying with them, you had only gone out for dates with Tony, or grocery shopping. On top of this, every time he would go off on missions Tony would come back with some sort of gift for you, it started off cheap and cheesy, but lately, they all noticed that Tony’s presents for you were getting more and more expensive. The avengers knew that the money he was spending on you wasn’t that much considering Tony was a multi-billionaire but it was the blind trust and love he had for you that concerned them. They never saw the two of you doing anything together, you would occasionally go on dates with him and you two shared a room. However, most of the time he was at the tower Tony was usually working in his lab, and you never came around to visit him or get him out of there.
They all tried in their own way to get Tony to realize that you weren’t in love with him, rather you were in love with the money and gifts he gave you, but nothing worked, he was too deep under your spell.
One morning Tony was preparing breakfast for himself, while the rest of the avengers were scattered throughout the kitchen. They had all just returned from a week-long mission in India shutting down a terrorist cell. “Tony,” you called out to him catching the attention of the rest of the team as well.
“Hello gorgeous,” he said, moving to place a kiss on your cheek. You hesitantly allowed him to kiss you, Tony’s love and your contradicting reaction flared the avengers hatred for you.
“Baby I saw this on the bedside, what is it?” you asked holding up an exquisite box.
“Oh, here,” he replied opening the box. Inside was a pair of bangles bejeweled with emeralds and rubies. “These bangles were last worn by the princess Mastani, they were a present from her husband Peshwa Bajirao. Their love story is one that is infamous in India, I saw them thought of you.”
Tony was expecting you to be ecstatic like you were for all the other presents he had got you. However, for the past few weeks, he noticed that you were becoming less and less excited at the presents he got you. Thinking it was because they weren’t special or expensive enough, he tried to up his game getting you presents, each one more expensive than the one before it. “Can you get them exchanged?” you asked. Disappointed as he was that you didn’t like what he got you, he just wanted you to love him back so with a sigh he chirpily responds, “Sure Pumpkin what can I get you?”
But before you could respond Natasha made a noise which was somewhere between a groan and a scream. Bruce looked like was trying hard not to turn into the Hulk, and the rest of the team looked at you with disgust. “That is enough,” she growled at you.
“Stand down Romanoff,” Tony joked, shielding you from everyone’s sight but Nat wouldn’t have any of it.
“Why are you so blind Tony? She is nothing but a gold digger, can’t you see that? She’s been using you to pay off debts, and fill her bank account! Don’t you dare argue back, I ran a background check on her, Tony. She’s a college dropout who was getting harassed by debt collectors. She only had a thousand dollars in her account and worked a small coffee shop. Then you come along, suddenly her bank account gets a thousand dollars every week, and her loans are paid off. She doesn’t work at that coffee shop anymore, frankly, she does nothing but still on her ass all day. Do you two even talk? Tony, she only comes out when you take her out on fancy dates. She can’t love you, Tony, she’s incapable of caring for you! Kick her out!” Nat screamed.
“THAT’S ENOUGH NATASHA!” Tony screamed, a staring contest ensued between Tony and her.
“You paid off my loans?” you asked quietly. Your voice was broken and for the first time since the screaming session started everyone’s eyes turned to you. You were in tears, hugging yourself to keep the shaking to a minimum.
Tony thought about lying, but once he saw your broken form sighed, shoulders slumping as he said, “Yes.”
“DAMMIT TONY!! HOW MANY TIMES MUST I TELL YOU I DON’T NEED YOUR MONEY!!!” you screamed, frustrated turning away from him.
“I’m sorry baby I just wanted to help you out. You’re doing so well with your writing and making money from that. I wanted you to just be focused on getting better at that rather than worrying about paying off your debts,” Tony stated, moving towards you to try and calm you down.
You moved away from him, still angry, “Do you hear what your friends think of me, Tony? They think that I’m a gold digger. Tony this is why I said I didn’t want your money, this is why I refused to go out with you for months. Oh and by the way, what I want in exchange of these bangles is JUST TWO DAMN HOURS OF YOUR TIME! You buy all these expensive gifts for me, and go on for hours telling anything and everything that will listen that you love me but you don’t have time to just be with me! You’re always in that lab of yours, for weeks I just let you be there thinking you need your time, and that you would come around soon enough. But no, you stay there, coming to bed way after I’ve fallen asleep, getting up before I wake up. I LOVE YOU TONY! NOT THE PRESENTS YOU GET ME AND THE MONEY YOU COULD GIVE ME! I LOVE YOU, AND NO PRESENT, NO MATTER HOW PRICELESS WILL EVER EQUVILATE TO GETTING TO SPEND TIME WITH YOU!” You stormed away, tears flowing down your cheeks leaving a bunch of avengers heavily confused.
Realizing her mistake, Natasha speaks up, “I’m sorry Tony.”
A sarcastic laugh escaped his mouth, “I’m not the one you should say that to.”
“We were just worried that she was using you for money. You can’t blame us for thinking like that Tony, she moved in a week after you announced you were dating her,” Steve tried to reason.
“So, what you ran a background check on her? Why couldn’t you just trust my decision?” Looking around at the sorry faces of the team he sighed. “I’ve known her since I was a kid. We kinda drifted apart as I went off to college. I found her working at the coffee shop by chance. When we were teens, I had a huge crush on her but couldn’t really tell her, because she was the only true friend I had, and I didn’t want to lose that. She looked so miserable working at the shop, and when we got talking she told me that her family died leading her to drop out of college, not having anyone to help her. She wanted to be a writer, when we were kids that’s all the girl could do. She used to write constantly, so I got her introduced to a publisher who fell in love with her work. She’s been working on different projects, that’s where the 1000 dollars per week comes from. It took me months to convince her to go out with me, we’ve both been in love with the other since we were 15, and I didn’t want to lose any more time. That’s why she moved in so quickly. I should have explained all this to you guys before,” Tony explained.
The team looked around at the each other, they all felt guilty for judging you instead of finding out more information. Tony made his way to his and your room, knowing that he gave you enough time to cool down. Upon entering, he saw your curled-up figure on the bed facing away from him, his heart wrenched within its cavity to know that, although unintentionally, he hurt you. He climbed in underneath the covers and pulled you close to his chest, hiding his face on the crook of your neck and inhaling your scent. “I’m sorry I yelled babe,” you quietly said as you moved to face him. Tony looked at you as if he was seeing you for the first time.
“I am so lucky to have you, you know that? I’m the one who should be sorry. I should have spent more time with you, please don’t leave me,” Tony desperately clung on to you.
“Tony Stark, I’ve put up with you since I was 5. It’s safe to assume that I will never leave you,” you laugh and pull him into a kiss.
“I love you(Y/N/N). So much. Now, how about we cook something together, and then have a horror movie marathon,” Tony exclaimed pulling you off the bed with him.
As you entered the kitchen you noticed the team huddled together. “Not coming up with a way to throw me out of the Tower I hope,” you sass. They immediately stood up straight, all with the same guilt-ridden expression about them.
“Hey (Y/N/N), we’re really sorry. It was wrong of us to spy on you in the first place, but it was even more wrong of us to judge you based on the little information we had on you,” Steve started.
“I apologize too, (Y/N/N). I called you things and I regret it,” Natasha said not even able to look at you.
“Forgive us,” Bucky added.
“Guys, it’s okay. All you knew about me was my bank statement that seemed to drastically change as soon as I started to date your friend. You were just looking out for him. I understand, if I was in your shoes I probably would have done the same thing,” you reassured. At your statement, they all let out a breath of relief making you giggle.
“She’s great isn’t she?” Tony bragged as he wrapped his arms around your waist hugging you from the back.
“Yeah, she is. Don’t screw this up Stark,” Sam said.
“Don’t plan on it, Birdman,” Tony responded picking you up and bringing you the bedroom, earning a squeal from you. “Screw cooking together, let’s just stay in bed.” Which is what you guys ended up doing, Tony showed you how much you meant to him, in several different ways. You were sure that you wouldn’t be able to walk for the next few days, but you wouldn’t have it any other way.
*hugs my mom* mom…you are the best mother ever but remember when you made me throw all of my weed down the toilet that was NOT cool, but I get it. You care about my well being, which means you love me, I think…happy mothers day *gives her a present That my dad bought*
((I can’t believe this is the only Tsuburaba gif in existence… a crime))
This boy… is a good boy. He doesn’t make a big deal about his birthday and gets embarrassed when people sing to him even though he belts it out on anyone else’s birthday
Will jokingly ask for a kiss as his present. Will have a seizure if you give it to him.
Kinda not a huge cake person? Like there’s just so much frosting and it all gets to be a bit much. Get cookies or ice cream or something and he’s a happy dude
(on a side note, Tsuburaba absolutely eats your ice cream when you’re not looking)
Being around Monoma, his mortal enemy, at all times, Tsuburaba has learned to become wary when something mysterious is given to him. He’s absolutely shocked when Monoma gets him something thoughtful and nice, and Kodai gets him a joke gift. He’s on the floor, his heart has stopped. Goodbye, wind boy.
it’s Valentine’ Day and you know what that means!! Victor and Yuuri will be wrapped in each other’s arms pretty much all day except for when they break off to make Valentine’s chocolate together and give each other adorable presents while saying i love you over and over. truly beautiful
I tried translating this the other day for Tandem, but I thought some of you guys would want this too!
YEAH SO I’m!! Not at all fluent in Japanese, I’m self-taught so like. Some of these might be wrong/inaccurate and a fewwww stuff I p much skipped AND also I got pretty lazy towards the end lmao, please forgive me
ANYWAY!! I’ll be putting this under a cut for length! Sorry @ mobile users if the read more doesn’t work hfjsf
You know what else I’d love to randomly see? Ladybug and Chat Noir heading into an akuma battle during an ongoing argument. The whole time they’re working together they’re just bickering about something stupid and completely ignoring the poor akuma victim’s rage.
Chat Noir: *dodging attacks* And I’m saying we SHOULD be allowed to give each other Christmas presents. Honestly buginette, I love you, but do you really think we’re going to figure each other’s identities out by some cheap gift?
Ladybug: Okay, first of all, you are NOT getting me a cheap gift, because I wouldn’t get YOU a cheap gift. *launches Chat at the victim to get their possessed item* Second of all we should be ruling out even the smallest thing that could give each other away!
Chat Noir: *is knocked away by the akuma victim* So you’re saying that if I gave you a nondescript diamond necklace you’d be able to figure out who I am?
Ladybug: HOW is a diamond necklace nondescript, Chat Noir?? How many people can afford a diamond necklace???
Chat Noir: More people than you think, Ladybug!
Akuma Victim: EXCUSE YOU I’M TRYING TO MONOLOGUE HERE
Ladybug and Chat Noir: SHUT UP!
Akuma Victim: *cowers*
Ladybug: *snatches the item herself and breaks it over her knee* And another thing—!
Chat Noir: *throws arms in the air as she purifies the butterfly*
Hawk Moth: …wtf just happened?
Adrinette Bonus Round
Adrien: Hey Marinette, can I ask you something?
Adrien: Would you call a diamond necklace nondescript? Marinette: *scowls* NO, I WOULDN’T. *stomps off*
Adrien: What the heck is her problem?? *annoyed*

Author’s Note: HEY GUYS so I finally got my new laptop and this is the first imagine I’d have written on it;) so anyways, here is a short and completely unrelated to my E2 barry series requested imagine and I hope that you guys will like it:)
It was the day before the wedding.
The day before your entire life would change. For the better. It was the last day before you would be called Y/N Allen, and you were ready. You were so ready to spend the rest of your life with the one you loved.
In honor of the last day as Y/N Y/L/N, you had just spent the day as an unmarried woman with your girlfriends. They threw you a small bachelorette party, allowing you to have gone into more spas and massages in the last couple of hours than you had in your entire life.
Now, tradition was that the bride and groom weren’t allowed to see each other on the day of the wedding which is why Barry and you wanted to have one last moment together before the big day.
You had decided to give each other presents to represent the new chapter of your lives with each other. Cliche, yes, but you thought it was a good way to start the next step of your life. Anyways, you loved to give presents to another person. And, of course, receiving them too.
It was a struggle to decide what to give Barry, but in the end, you were excited and content with what you had come up with. You smiled as you put the final touches on your present. After a long day with the girls, it was nice to just sit in the quiet of your apartment with your future husband. Even if the manicure you had just gotten was pretty nice too.
When you finished, you waited a little bit for Barry to arrive. You had finished early and now you were sitting on the couch, hoping that you chose the right thing to give him.
Just then, the doorbell rang.
You jumped in excitement and basically almost ran to the door. A few days without Barry and you were already missing him.
“Barry!” you greeted. His eyes sparkled behind his round glasses as his grand smile erupted. “You’re here!”
He chuckled as he wrapped his arms around your waist. “Of course, Y/N. Where else would I be?”
You kissed him lightly on the lips before dragging him by the arm into the living room where you had your present. Honestly, you were kind of proud of your present. It might’ve not been the prettiest thing, exactly, but you put a lot of your time and work into it and you had a gut feeling that Barry would love it.
“C’mon, I want to give you my present!” you said happily. Barry smiled at you as you shook your leg in an act of being slightly impatient.
“Alright, alright, Y/N. I’ll open it,” Barry said, grabbing the box that you were handing him. It was wrapped in a plain green wrapping paper with a small silver heart stuck on the right top corner.
He raised an eyebrow at the simplicity of the box. You smiled, and then shrugged.
“I heard that green symbolizes new beginnings,” you said. Barry chuckled before slowly unwrapping it. His gentleness was always one your favorite things, but right now, it was making you almost jump in your seat.
Barry slowly opened the box and pulled something out.
He stared at it for a few moments as you scanned his face for any emotions.
Barry pushed up his glasses slightly before making eye contact with you. Glancing at the present, he gave you an uncertain smile.
“Um, t-thanks for the…uh…gift?” he said, the sentence ending in a question. Your smile grew larger. Honestly, you knew that this would happen.
Barry Allen was a smart person; he was the CSI technician for CCPD, of course he was smart. But sometimes, he was just so clueless, it was so cute.
“Do you like it?” you asked, messing with him. “Do you know what it means?”
Barry stared at your present, trying to figure out exactly what it was so that he could tell you what it meant to him. But he couldn’t decipher what it was for the life of him.
After a minute or so passed, he gave up and sighed with a soft smile.
“I’m sorry, Y/N,” he chuckled. “But, I have,” he glanced back at the present, “…no clue what this is supposed to be.”
You laughed before grabbing the present from his hands.
“It’s because you’re holding it upside down, idiot,” you said. You turned the present upright before giving it back to him. It took him a second to analyze exactly what it was before he began to smile again.
With him, your smile also enlarged in size.
The present was a crocheted figurine of you and Barry holding hands.
You had decided to take up crochet just because you loved the idea of making something. It had taken you a while, but with the help of the internet, you figured out how to make little characters by crocheting it.
You crocheted Barry with his round glasses, the brown hair, the vest and slacks, and the infamous bow tie. The most difficult part was intertwining your hands together. Once you got that down, you made yourself wearing your favorite outfit.
You had spent a lot of time on it, and although it wasn’t perfect, you thought it represented you two’s relationship perfectly.
Barry smiled and turned to you. “I love it,” he whispered. Barry put the dolls gently back into the box and grabbed your head, kissing you softly against your lips.
“Let’s go see your present,” he mumbled against your lips.
“Go?” you asked, pulling away slightly. Barry smiled.
“Yes, go. C’mon.” He grabbed your hand and dragged you off your couch, out of the apartment, and onto the elevator where he hit the top floor button. Still holding your hand, Barry walked fast out of the elevator when its doors opened and pulled you out onto the rooftop.
There, was the most breathtaking thing that you’ve seen in your life so far.
It literally took your breath away. Stunned, you stared at the lit up dinner setting that laid in front of you.
The small table was covered with two plate settings with a bottle of wine in the middle along with one candle. Dim lights hung from the wires that hung above you which somehow made the stars in the dark sky shine brighter. You could see the streets far below you; the cars driving by mutely and the moon illuminating its light so close to you.
“Isn’t it beautiful?” Barry asked you as he stared at the stars. Barry guided you to the table, biting his lip, waiting for your approval.
“I love it, Barry,” you responded, still awestruck at the romantic dinner.
It was one right out of the movies.
You smiled as he lived the silver covering, revealing your favorite dish.
“It’s fairly simple,” Barry started, “But I think it’s a nice way to start our new life together.” He placed the dolls next to the ice can where the wine was sitting in, making sure that they could sit down without falling over.
You smiled at the gentleness that he handled them with and the perfect night that he had given you.
“It’s amazing. I-It takes my breath away,” you said. Barry grabbed your hand from across the table.
“I love you, Y/N. And I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you,” Barry whispered, kissing the top of your hand softly.
Tears built up in your eyes. Bartholomew Allen. Cute, nerdy, amazing, Barry Allen was sweeping you off your feet and you had no problem with it at all. He was the one. The one that you didn’t even know that you’d been waiting for. He was your knight in shining armor, even if you weren’t a damsel in distress.
Barry was the one that made you understand why you were here on this Earth in the first place.
“I love you too, Barry,” you breathed. One tear fell slowly down your cheek. He swiped it away with his thumb and smiled at you.
“Let’s eat, Y/N. Before the food gets cold,” Barry told you. You nodded gratefully, picking up a fork.
The night ended with a romantic dinner and crocheted dolls whose hands were sewed together forever.
And it was the most perfect night to welcome the next day that was too come.

My name is Montse, 20 years old and I live in México. Yaaaay! I´m currently in College, getting my degree in International Trade and Business, I´m fluent in English, Spanish and I know a little German and French.
I´ve always wanted to have a pen pal! Ever since I can remember, but never really had the chance because idk, I was way too busy being a trouble child. I´m looking for someone to talk about anything and everything! Someone as passionate as I am who loves to talk about what they love and what they hate. I like to hear people ranting on and on about things lol. Someone who is willing to form some long-lasting friendships and yeah c: I would like to snail mail, but if you don’t want to, that’s fine… tho it would be nice, don´t you think? I’d send you lots of things like candy and cute little things I find interesting and lil paintings I’d do for you. Maybe even books!! I just love to give other people presents.
My interests include:
-Poetry, above all (I´m really into contemporary poetry)
-Music (I know a loooot of bands and artists so I could make you a few playlists if you´d like)
-Playing guitar and piano
-Learning new things about everything
-Writing (Especially letters. Trust me, a letter is the greatest gift you could ever give me. I’m most likely to save it forever!!)
I’m not a picky person, I basically get along with everyone as long as they are not racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic and stuff. I strongly believe in loving everyone for who they are.
Anyways, I’d love to hear about you and your life c: Sharing stories about how boring our cities can be and how big our dreams are.
