i love how ever looks in this cap

Hate Myself

Based losely off of this:

Person A: You can’t love someone unless you love yourself first

Person B: Bullshit. I have never loved myself but her, oh God, I love her so much that i forget what hating myself feels like


Steve and Tony are sitting on a blanket in Central Park while Y/N, Clint, and Bucky play with Clint’s dog, Lucky, a short distance away. Tony and Steve had stopped fighting so much, and had even become good friends ever since Tony started dating Y/N.

“I really love her, you know?” Tony whispered, watching his girlfriend as she threw her head back in laughter

Steve sighed, “Are you sure that you can really love her?”

Tony looks at Steve sharply, “What’s that supposed to mean?”

Steve straightens out and turns more toward Tony still keeping Y/N, Bucky, and Clint in his peripheral vision. “You can’t love someone unless you love yourself first, Tony”

“Bullshit” Tony snapped

The response is almost automatic, “Language” Steve sighed, “I didn’t’ mean anything bad by it, Tony. All I’m saying is that it might be difficult to really love her is you hate yourself”

“Are you alright, babe?” Y/N calls, noticing the tension in Tony’s shoulders

His eyes immediately soften when they meet Y/N’s, “Yeah, sweetheart, I’m fine. Don’t worry about me”

Y/N nods, giving Tony one last concerned smile, before turning back and throwing the ball for Lucky.

Tony whips back around to face Steve, “You listen to me, Cap. Don’t you ever question my feelings for Y/N, ever”

“Tony, I was just saying …”

“No” Tony interrupts, “I have never loved myself, but Y/N, God, I love her so much that I forget what hating myself feels like” Tony looks over to where Y/N is watching Bucky and Clint wrestle, “My feelings for her are so strong that sometimes it scares me”

“I didn’t know you felt that strongly”

A soft smile graces Tony’s face, “Her love for me makes me forget how much of a fuck up I am, how much she deserves more than me”

Suddenly a shadow falls over Tony’s face, “Are you being self-deprecating again? Saying how much you don’t deserve me?” Y/n chuckles and plops down right in Tony’s lap

He nuzzles into her hair, “You know me too well, love”

“I know that look, is what I know. I also know that I love you and hate it when you get yourself in a bad mood” Y/N narrows her eyes at Steve, “So make sure he doesn’t get in a bad mood”

Steve lets out a deep chuckle, “As you wish, Y/N”

Clint bounds over and grabs Y/N’s had, “Come on, Y/N! Tony gets your attention all the time! Lucky’s starting to miss you!”

Y/N laughs but allows herself to be pulled up, “Oh, he’s the only one who misses me?” she teases, but doesn’t fight being dragged back to where Bucky and Lucky are waiting.

Steve turns back to Tony, “I suppose you really can love someone and not necessarily love yourself”

“Yeah, Capsicle. You really can”

Guys I just finished reading Demigods and magicians. I thought these short stories took place after the original series so I was surprised. I never really cared about it before because I thought it was sort of like the Demigod files but when I read that it’s actually three new stories that take place after Heroes of Olympus I was intrigued and ordered the book.

My first question is; why doesn’t anyone talk more about these short stories? They were so cute! I was never a big fan of the Kane Chronicles but I did love the characters so see them mixed with Percy and Annabeth was just great! 

- We get to read from Percy’s POV again! It’s been too long and I’ve missed his voice.

- Percy looking at Sadie and thinking that if he and Annabeth ever had a daughter she would probably be a lot like her. Since she looked like a young Annabeth and behaved a lot like Percy. I mean, how sweet is that? He has an entire paragraph just thinking about it. 

- Annabeth (kinda) gets her weapons back! I had no idea this happened. She gets a new bronze knife but more than that, her cap is working again! 

- Just reading their banter again was delightful. “Percy, explaining things to you is like lecturing a gerbil.” “Hey, Wise girl, don’t start with me.” “Whatever, Seaweed brain.” 

- I especially love reading about the part when they spoke about Percy turning down immortality. Somehow I’ve always wanted him to acknowledge it again. Like did he ever regret it? In this short story they do mention it a lot. Percy says that he doesn’t want to be a god and he has not changed his mind about it. Which is always comforting to hear. 

Idk, I just enjoyed these short stories a lot and like I said, I’m surprised that I don’t hear people discuss them more. What do you think of them? 

anonymous asked:

Just curious-- what makes the 2009 Emma adaptation a work of art?

*cracks knuckles* *pulls out color coded binder* I’m so glad you asked.

I’ve seen a lot of Emma adaptations: Clueless, Emma (1996), Aisha, the other BBC series (the one with Kate Beckinsdale and Mark Strong), Emma Approved, and of course, the 2009 BBC Miniseries. The 2009 version is my favorite, it always has been, and it always will be. Most of that comes down to characterization, but it is also about the way it captures Austen’s story magnificently though language, set design, costuming, and music.

I fell in love with you when you weren’t looking.
From the way your body twitched every night as you fell asleep to the way you pulled me closer in the groggy mornings.
With the way you genuinely belly giggled when you were truly comfortable in a place or with a person.
And how you would absent-mindedly scratch my head while we watched countless Adam Sandler movies in bed on Saturday afternoons.
When it was just us two and you couldn’t help but sing a little everytime your favorite song came on the radio.
With the way you wore a baseball cap backwards and how you looked from my spot in the passenger seat.

But mostly, I fell in love with how you loved me when I wasn’t looking. @needumost

I don’t know how I feel about this one yet, but here it is…

Happier Without Me?

Request from @isabela-claire​: hiya! could i request an imagine please with bucky? could you do one based off the song “happier” by ed sheeran? that would be totally amazing, it’s just so great. but if you don’t mind i’d love a happy ending, sad endings make me cry. & i really don’t wanna cry. thanks so much!!! have a wonderful day!

Note: Song based fics aren’t my biggest strength but I enjoyed writing this one so I hope it proves to be just as enjoyable to read <3

Walking down 29th and Park
I saw you in another’s arms
Only a month we’ve been apart
You look happier.

This was the fifth time he had seen you over the course of the past two weeks; despite the rest of the team telling him to leave it he just couldn’t. He needed to talk to you but every single time he spotted you in the city you were always with him. It was the same guy each and every time….his arm wrapped around you protectively.  The very thing Bucky himself should have been doing – instead he had hurt you and now he was facing the consequences.

He never heard the words you spoke to each other as he would only ever get close enough to see you….never to hear that beautiful voice of yours, he didn’t want you to know that he was suffering because he knew he deserved it.

Hi! Sorry it’s long, but could I get a Pietro x reader where (Y/N) Stark is a key asset to the avengers. When she runs into Pietro for the first time they both catch the others eye even though they’re "enemies”. It becomes a teasing match between them every time they encounter one another. In Sokovia, Pietro asks (Y/N) to marry him only after knowing her a few days, she says maybe, but wants to say yes. After the fight is over and (Y/N) finds out that Pietro is dead, she is unconsolable.
A/n: I’m sorry there are so many time skips but I had to do that for it to be able to fit in multiple days. Pretty sure I was able to keep this one gender neutral- so that’s always good! :)

"What are you waiting for? Go!” Steve yelled to you.

You started to run to your next target. That was, until you saw a flash of blue run past you. You stopped moving to see if you could figure out what it was that passed you. Next thing you knew, you were being flicked multiple times on your head.

“What the…?” You mumbled to yourself.

Then, you were spun around. “You didn’t see that comi- woah.” The blue streak turned out to be a boy, who seemed to be around your age, and had an accent.

“What was that, Starkling?” Clint asked.

You didn’t reply to Clint but stared at the boy who spun you around. He was definitely attractive, but was on the wrong team.

“Y/n!” Your brother called. “What was that?” Tony snapped you out of your daydream.

“Oh! Uh, there’s an enhanced.” You spoke quietly, and the man ran off when he heard you speak.

can we talk about shawn’s hair?

it’s so soft and bouncy and just looks like i could honestly live in it forever. 

like he’d definitely let you do stupid stuff with it and try and put it in little baby pigtails or something because he secretly just loves when you play with his hair. but when you’d try to take a pic of your work, he’d cover up his face and whine about how “i look dumb” and make you delete any photo evidence that it ever happened. 

his HATS LETS TALK ABOUT HIS HATS. the beanies kill me but seeing him in a beanie is so rare that i haven’t been able to fully develop my obsession. but the dad hats… the dad hats are another story.

Louis and his Sweatshirts

the wonderful webetterofftogether requested a louis’ hoodies masterpost and lifechangeing and i basically have been challenging each other with finding the best louis photos and rather than making our huge long post even longer, we decided we should do separate posts as themes, so this is my attempt to take care of two at once!

at first i was trying to find photos of the different hoodies and sweatshirts that louis wore…but it kinda evolved into a post of louis just wearing sweatshirts, i hope you don’t mind.  i figure any collection of louis photos can’t go wrong.  so without any further ado, here we go!

I just started laughing to myself because last Halloween I got really into crafting DIY decor, most of which happened to be witchy aesthetics - including tiny bottles mimicking magickal ingredients and like
Obviously this means I can give it a go again - but actually fill the suckers with real items
Ive been worried like “oh no how ever will i be a closet witch in this house” but I oughta just slap myself because??? Im not sure anyone would even question me at this point as long as I make a point to make it look aesthetically pleasing
If anything my parents would just think like, “ok thats weird but shes weird and i accept that” lmao 

full version of my slavemark post: for anon

here u go anon! i also fixed some typos that were in the original post and i didnt notice, and took out the parts that were aimed at the mutuals on my main djsgasrk

ok ok ok can i talk about my current hyperfixation for a little bit? im reading the how to train your dragon books but i started them when i was younger and never finished them despite how much i liked them, and im finishing them now and i just finished the 7th book and dear god

the main character, hiccup horrendous haddock iii (who is VERY, VERY different from the one in the movies btw) had been kidnapped, and found out that the people who had kidnapped him had 190 slaves on their boat. all of them were native people from the area they were at. hiccup promised to get them out, and in order to make sure he kept this promise, the slaves gave him the slavemark that they all had. now, this mark is something that puts hiccup in a lot danger, it could get him exiled from the tribe he’s supposed to rule, it could get him killed

but, like every other httyd book thus far, the epilogue is a message from hiccup to the readers, and this is what he says about the slavemark:

“the slavemark has been quite the burden to bear, and made my task [to create a new, better world at home] much harder. but thor was right to give me the slavemark. […] maybe all kings should be given the slavemark, to remind them that they are slaves to their people, not the other way around. and to help them never forget what it feels like to be a child… to be small, and weak, and helpless. perhaps my vision does not seem as revolutionary to readers of the future. […]”

but F*CK, guys, in a way, it IS still revolutionary!! because our rulers today (or at least, the rulers of the u.s.) are NOT working for the greater good, do NOT remember what it feels like to be small, and weak, and helpless.

it’s INCREDIBLE and SAD that a character in a children’s book can be wiser than the people of power in our world today!!!

and f*ck, man, i get so defensive over these books when they’re compared to the movies, i always say the books are better. this is why!!! not only do the books have amazing story lines, loveable and brilliant characters, and are VERY VERY funny at times, but they teach amazing lessons to kids!! lessons that even the smallest, most uninteresting people (or dragons, for that matter) can be great heroes, and that the more-fortunate should ALWAYS help those in need and i love it so so much these books have changed my life holy f*ck

anyway hey thanks to anyone who read this, and please, PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD read these books if you haven’t they’re so good

hey,I adore your imagines!could you maybe write one where reader and Piet have been dating for some time& after the battle in sokovia, he’s dead &u take out ur anger on Clint because you blame him for it (reader is his niece). u can finish however xx
A/n: (I’m glad you like my imagines :D ) I wasn’t planning on the imagine to be this long, but I ended up having more ideas for this than I thought. ALSO, OMG, 300 FOLLOWERS! WOWZA! *love heart* I’m just so glad people actually like my writing ^-^

Part Two

You really didn’t like the sound of going on a Sokovia mission. You knew who was there, and what they were capable of, and you really didn’t want to have him see you there and have him making assumptions.

But alas, there was no getting out of this one. You had to go. Steve really wanted you there to make sure things went according to plan. And with your skills with a bow, you would be a great help.

Your uncle also thought it would have been a good idea for you to go with the team. You hadn’t been out on many missions and he wanted you to show everyone what they’re up against. It was the one time Clint would admit that someone could be better at him with a bow- and that’s rare.

You were stressing about landing in Sokovia, up until the jet actually took off. That’s when you realized that there was no going back.

You did as you were told and stayed near the forest and started to take out some Hydra agents. Then you saw it. Him.

Draga? What are you doing here?” He asked you. “It is dangerous! How did you even get here?” He started to speak quickly and he walked towards you. “Come on, let me get you out of here.”

“What was that?” Rang through your ear.

“What?” You said under your breath, trying to make it seem like there was nothing there.

A conversation about the 4th Wall in Marvel Comics
  • Deadpool: Hey everybody. It's your favorite merc with a mouth here to talk to you about the fourth wall in comics. I know how much you love when I talk to the readers and interact with those caption bubbles. It's something that hasn't been done in the Marvel Universe before.
  • She Hulk: (Walks in and slaps Deadpool on the back.) Hey Wade, whatcha doin'?
  • Deadpool: I'm talking to the readers like all the cool kids do. You wouldn't understand.
  • She Hulk: I'm sure I have no idea what you're doing. Who's writing this issue anyway? It isn't Byrne is it? Any chance Renee's your editor.
  • Deadpool: What are you talking about?
  • She Hulk: You mean they let you know you're in a comic book, but you don't get to talk to the creative team at all? You got ripped off, kid.
  • Deadpool: I did not. I've got one of the best selling comics out there. What did you get?
  • She Hulk: OK, you've got me there. That reminds me, a bunch of nerds out there owe me their X-men comics.
  • Deadpool: You have to let that go.
  • She Hulk: I know. I know. Hey at least I had a good run. I got to meet Stan Lee, Santa Clause, and jump rope naked for an entire issue.
  • Deadpool: I read that issue. It was all a lie.
  • She Hulk: Can't blame a girl for trying.
  • Deadpool: So I guess we're it for now, and I'm glad about that. Don't need too much competition.
  • Voice: I think you forgot somebody.
  • Deadpool: Who's that?
  • Cap: It's me, Captain America.
  • She Hulk: When did you ever break the fourth wall?
  • Cap: I've been breaking the wall for the last 75 years.
  • Deadpool: How do you figure that, grandpa.
  • Cap: You know how they have those thought bubbles that let you know what characters think?
  • She Hulk: I love those. Gives everything away.
  • Deadpool: And they give you lots of material to bribe people. Did you ever hear about what Wolverine hides under his bed?
  • She Hulk: I don't want to know, thank you very much.
  • Cap: Don't you want to know how I broke the fourth wall all these years?
  • Deadpool: Will it shut you up?
  • She Hulk: It can't be that impressive, Cap. Not to put you down or anything.
  • Cap: Go back and look at all my thought bubbles over the last 75 years. Did you ever see one where I had a single thought about being a secret agent of Hydra?
  • She Hulk: No, because the whole story line is stupid.
  • Deadpool: (whispers) I was going to say that, thank you very much.
  • Cap: 75 years and I never gave any indication I was a bad guy. Never a single thought out of place. The readers were clueless.
  • She Hulk: (storms off) Byrne! Is this your fault? I wouldn't put it past you. Get over here and fix this right now.
  • Cap: What is she doing?
  • Deadpool: Doing something worthwhile with her fourth wall breaking skills. See you later gramps. don't let the plot holes hit you in the ass on your way out.
  • Cap: I don't think that was necessary at all.

I just found this screen cap on google and I just love the look of mirrored concern in both Astrid and Valka’s face.

What struck me is: this is the first time they have ever seen each other properly.
Valka might not have even known of Astrid’s existence. Valka has no idea how big a part Astrid is, in Hiccup’s life and the Haddock family for that matter.

I just think it’s so nice that they just accept each other and support Hiccup together.

What do other people think about Astrid and Valka?

Jadyn is at Disneyland again and this is the last time she's going for a while

So of course the first thing I did was go on the gotg ride (twice) and then I went to go meet Spiderman. He was adorable (as usual) and then he got really sad because my ears only had THOR and captain America on them, and I didn’t have anything else on me with him on it.
Then he looked at my arc reactor necklace and was like, “Oh, man! You even have a Tony stark necklace? That’s really cool! But you have nothing with me!” And he put his hand on his head and was all sad before he exclaimed, “wait! I know how to fix this! What if you got like a pin with my face on it? They have a really big one with my face! Or you could get like a bracelet, how bout that?”

I was like, “Yeah! Sure, I’ll look! Don’t worry though, you’re my favorite.”

He put his hands on his cheeks and was like, “Awe! Gosh, you are making me blush.”

Then we took a picture (which I’m sharing later) and I ran to go find a pin… which I found and bought, and I met him again as he was leaving. He loved it and I got a video (which I’m also sharing later), but can I just say spiderman is the most adorable thing ever? If y'all ever get the chance to come to Disneyland, go meet him, Thor, and Cap! They are all sweet, and funny and they all make fun of each other… it’s great.


25 Things I Wish I Would've Known

No one can mentally prepare themselves enough for their first child. No matter what age you are you are never fully ready for what is about to come. Here is my list of 25 things I didn’t know, but wish I knew about a new baby and being a new mom.

1. Unconditional love has never looked so sweet.

2. You will never have the “perfect” sleep ever again. Or at least until your child has moved out. Say goodbye to those zzz’s!

3. Sometimes, you’ll need to leave baby in a safe place and take a step out of the room to gather your sanity. Unless you have the patience of a dead man, this one is inevitable.

4. Breast feeding is HARD! Don’t give up, you’ll regret it after awhile.

5. They say you shed weight from breast feeding? I doubt that. I think you shed weight from never being able to sit down and eat a decent meal.

6. Sometimes. Peeing while holding your baby just has to happen… You’re not the worst mother in the world, I promise.

7. Baby’s two month vaccinations are hard on mom too, it’s okay to cry.

8. Babies can NOT be spoiled at three months, that is a crock of poo and studies stand with me on that. Don’t listen to your grandmother.

9. Hemorrhoids can happen after birth too. They suck.

10. There’s nothing more mind settling knowing that your baby is asleep, and now you can rest too.

11. It’s okay to call over a family member or friend to watch baby so you can have a shower. It’s probably needed anyways.

12. You go ahead, and you look at that baby, and you cry! You made that! You’re a superhero!

13. Your poor, poor nipples… They won’t ever be the same.

14. You really don’t NEED that change table. It’ll probably just get used for clutter anyways.

15. Babies smell lovely. Soak that up.

16. You’re allowed to bed share, you’re allowed to co sleep, you’ll allowed to put them in the crib. Whatever works best for YOU momma!

17. You rock that 5 day old pony tail, don’t let anybody tell you different.

18. No matter what the nurses say you don’t HAVE to look down there two weeks postpartum.

19. Cradle cap sucks and I have yet to figure out how to get rid of it faster.

20. Newborns aren’t known for their flawless skin let me tell you that much.

21. They grow fast, don’t spend all your time wishing they could walk, or talk, or crawl. Live in the moment now.

22. Swaddle. That is my only true advice. Unless you want your babe to be woken up by his own arm smacking him in the face.

23. Welcome all advice, take in what works best for you.

24. Don’t cheap out on a decent stroller. You’ll be using it for the next two to three years.

25. Love every minute of this precious life you have in front of you. Time goes all too fast in this world.
