A/N: This is my submission for the lovely wonderful talented @bladebarnes’ 2k Celebration Challenge. My prompt was 35. quote: “Say that again.” I saw Baby Driver recently and couldn’t get the diner thing out of my head.
I mean, generally speaking, holding hands is barely something to get this excited over right? (or as my friend so eloquently put it, “It’s freaking Game of Thrones and you’re excited about people holding hands???”). To which, my answer is:
I’m not just excited about them holding hands (although I’m crazily obsessed with it, and have watched that scene a couple million times already). It’s the fact that Jon ‘You-know-nothing’ Snow, clueless Jon, naive Jon who despite being told this:
Still didn’t make the first move. Who’s always had that ‘I’m adorable but I don’t know it’ aura around him. Who’s always been so reserved and so..just so unsure about himself nearly always.
The thing which made me go crazy about the Jonerys hand holding was Jon making the move y’all!!
Jon!!!, our Jon!!, reaching out!!, grabbing her hand!!!, not letting go!!!
I can watch this forever and still not get tired, because this shows Jon Snow reaching out for something that matters to him, Jon Snow holding on and not letting go because he wanted this. He wanted someone for the first time in forever and he went for it and he didn’t want to let go!
And this, this, is why the Jonerys handhold will always be the most romantic thing I’ve ever seen on GoT, because we have a vulnerable hesitant Dany, and a ‘dammit all, I’m going for this’ Jon, and that was the most beautiful scene I had seen in a really long time!
Ok but I’m still not over this after a week. Yes boatsex was amazing but JON SNOW.
This is the man who isn’t afraid to head into battle, and is willing to die for his people if needed. He is a trained soldier. He has already died. What is there left to fear or be wary of?
Here are a few examples of Jon Snow casually facing his own death without hesitation:
Here, he’s going solo against Ramsay WITHOUT EVEN A WEAPON.
And let’s not forget his first encounter with a white walker. Let alone the countless other times.
And yet. And yet.
When it comes to the Dragon Queen, it’s a completely different story.
He can’t even look her in the eye, knowing that he’s let her down.
Look at him. He looks like a kid who knows he’s about to be scolded. He’s faced DEATH and ICE ZOMBIES and BLOODTHIRSTY WILDLINGS and yet it’s his Queen’s disappointment that he can’t handle.
And yet watch how he softens when she smiles.
Look at how anxious he is about knocking on his Queen’s door. He has to visibly take deep breaths to muster the courage as he knows this will change everything.
And even when he readies his hand to knock, there is STILL some hesitation. THIS is what frightens him. Potential rejection by Daenerys. The consequences of a romance. The love that he feels for her.
And that little dip of his head after he knocks? It’s a moment of Ok, it’s done, it’s happening, now I wait. And you can still see how anxious he is.
And then when he gets what he wants and they get intimate, he has to lean back a moment, just to process that this is actually happening. That she hasn’t rejected him. That she wants him too. This moment is real. She is real. That they’re connected beyond just a successful military alliance. And it floors him.
And these are only a couple of gifs from the last episode. I could sit here and put up all the gifs of the way he has looked at her this season and just stare at them for the next 3 days.
Jon Snow is so totally whipped and love. Antis who say there is no chemistry, or that it’s clear that he’s manipulating her need to stop drinking that Kool-Aid. This is not a man who loves another. Or does not care for her. This is a man who values his Queen, respects her and cares about her opinion. Not one who is playing her.
So let’s just continue to laugh at the antis who can continue to cry and attempt to ruin Jon’s character.
Let me start out first by wishing you all a very Happy Halloween, this post is my Halloween gift to you all. I will be attempting to analyze the now infamous “Dog Semen” comic strip. This is commonly considered to be Jim Davis’s “Cow Tools” strip, a strip that’s audience interpretation became far removed from the CREATORs intent. Considering the current controversy around this particular comic strip, I thought it would be a great idea to try and give an explanation to this piece and end the controversy once and for all. I’ll be putting it all under the break, hope you take th/ time to read /t..
twyin lannister once said, “any man who must say ‘I am the king’ is no true king at all.” this could be applied to dany too. she was angered bc jon didn’t call her his queen and she noticed that he wasn’t intimidated by her at all. if things as small as this annoys her what makes people believe she isn’t falling on the road to her father? this is a example of a bad ruler, no true queen. a true queen is never offended that someone beneath her does not refer to her as such. a true queen is able to accept that not everyone will view her as a important figure, that everyone will not crawl in fear bc of dragons. this is the same game that the targaryens has always played and dany is falling under the trap. i call this targaryen entitlement. jon isn’t threatened at all which gives him more claim to the true hope.
“My mom is better than yours” - Batmom x Damian Wayne
Summary : The Kent family have invited your family over for dinner, and of course, as usual, Damian and Jon don’t quite…behave.
I just wanted to write a short little cute fic with Damian and his mama because I just love the idea of Damian being super proud of his Batmom and blahblahblah maybe it’s a bit too long sorry. I hope you will like it :
Bruce thought it was extremely cute, how Damian’s eyes always seem to shine when looking at you. How his face brightens. Even how ashamed he is when you scold him when he’s too cocky, or simply being a plain brat.
The kid thought you were just the best damn thing on this planet.
He admired everything you did…
The Batman had to admit it, sometimes, he was a bit jealous.
But mostly, he just thought it was really cute, to see his boy completely accepting you as his mother. Hell, he was even calling you “Mama” (damn period dramas) now !
You were the one he considered his mom (Talia actually tried to kill you a few times because of that, jealous beyond everything of you and the love “her” son seemed to have for you…She tried harder when Damian told her that she was “never his mom”, that you showed him what a real mother was, and also, when she realized how in love Bruce was with you, while she had to drug him to get him to sleep with her…Yeah, pretty jealous. You always pulled through though, mostly thanks to your boys, husband and superfriends).
Well, to be honest, he never doubted the fact that you’d get along with him. You had a special effect on people. If you really put your mind to it, you can convince anyone to do what you want, you can win anyone’s heart in a little flutter of your damn beautiful eyelashes…
When Damian first met you, he was most disagreeable, and you…grounded him. “Young man, in your room, no dessert for you tonight”, and he was so stunned that he did it, though he didn’t even listen to his father at the time, and thought he knew everything better than everyone ! He knew you only for a few minutes, and he already had more respect for you than for anyone else.
Sometimes, Bruce suspected that you might be a meta-human, because the power you could have over people with your magnificent aura was…something. But he tested you in every way possible, and he had to admit that, you were just like him. A simple human. A simple human with incredible abilities.
Yes. Bruce always thought it was extremely cute the way his son, your son to the both of you, almost worshipped you.
Well, your older kids did too. Again, there was just a way about you…
You started dating Bruce when he first took young Richard Grayson in, about twelve years ago (right after Talia drugged him actually), when he was barely 8 years old and heartbroken because of his parents’ death…And though you were merely twenty, quite younger than Bruce really, you took your job as a surrogate mother for Dick very seriously. Quickly, the boy asked you if he could call you mom, if his own mother would be mad and…well, the hug you gave him was answer enough. Though he was twenty and had his own flat in Bludhaven now, Dick was still quite the momma’s boy.
It was pretty much the same with Jason. You winked at him and told him it was pretty cool and brave to try and steal the batmobile’s wheels, and boom, you had him wrapped around your little fingers. He lived for your bedtime stories and cuddle when he had trouble sleeping.
Tim was even easier to treat you like his mom. After only a few months he was already introducing you as his mother, and that was that. Just natural. Unlike Jason and Dick, his birth mother wasn’t exactly…the best, and you gave him a chance to have a real mom. One that would die for her son, do anything for him, even if it meant staying up all night to sing him soothing songs while he had the flu, putting ridiculous costumes to go trick or treating with him, or, more recently, since he was now 15 (already ?!), gaming with him until you’d both pass out out of exhaustion.
Quite like Tim, Damian never had the love of a “real” mother. How it should be. The mom taking care of her son, no matter what. Not letting him do whatever he wants, but making sure he’s happy…and so, just like his older brothers before him, he came to simply adore you.
And you can read all about it in that Entertainment Weekly article I just linked to! I’m super excited for this, and so stoked he was able to come on board. The issue - #26, out next month - is about Doreen making all her superpowered friends write comics for a zine she’s pulling together. And Jim Davis is making Galactus’s OWN AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL COMICS come to life.
Here’s an excerpt from the article!
“When you look at the Silver Surfer, he’s 75 percent of the way there anyway with Jon, all we had to do is give him the big eyes. That was a natural. John kind of hangs around Garfield anyway, he’s the straight man to Garfield’s gags and has to get him food. He’s like Garfield’s herald. Galactus was tougher. We were throwing stuff back and forth, and the initial sketches just weren’t working for Galactus. I said okay, we gotta make him fat. The guy eats planets, for god’s sake! Once we do that, it’s a little less Galactus but certainly a lot more Garfield. It looked more natural. Obviously, Galactus has put on a few mega-tons for this strip.”
You can read the whole thing here, and included are some sneak peeks at but some of the GALACTUS COMICS we made, as well as unlettered Kraven art from Michael Cho, Spider-Man comics by @rahzzah, Tippy art by Rico Renzi (our colourist!), and Howard art by @zdarsky, whose story is written by @ericafailsatlife (our artist!)! It’s going to be a RIDICULOUSLY FUN ISSUE and I can’t wait for y’all to read it. Thank you Jim for being down for this and thank you all for supporting the book so much that we get to do crazy things like this!!
Prompts: 50. “I don’t think you’re ever too old for
trick-or-treating.” And 51. “We’re dressing up for Halloween this year and
that’s final.” With Jonathan Byers.
Pairing: Jonathan Byers x Reader
Warnings: Slight spoilers for episode 2 of season 2.

A/N: I’m feeling Halloweeny and just binged five episodes of
the new Stranger Things season and got serious Jonathan feels so here is a
Halloween imagine. I will probably do a part 2 of the morning after . Requests
are open!!! Especially for Stranger Things. I will also do a few characters
from IT if you want.
It was no secret that Y/N loved Halloween. Every year she
would dress up and this year was going to be no exception; even if Jonathan had
other ideas. The pair had been inseparable ever since Will had disappeared and
Y/N had almost been taken by the creature as well. When her best friend Nancy
said she saw it too they had tried to figure it out. Jonathan had gotten
involved somewhere along the way and the rest was history.
“We’re dressing up for Halloween this year and that’s
final.” Y/N said sternly from her position on the Byers sofa as Jonathan was
sat on the floor trying to organise his recent photos.
“I don’t understand why? It’s not like we are doing anything
other than chaperoning Will.” Jonathan replied, looking up briefly to the girl
who was sprawled on his sofa with her science homework. “There’s no point. Plus,
we are a little too old for trick or treating.”
Y/N shot him a pointed look. “I don’t think you’re ever too
old for trick-or-treating. Please Jon. Pretty please.” She battered her
eyelashes and bit her lip at him and Jonathan thought he was going to have a
“F-Fine. I suppose
but I’m picking the costumes.” Jonathan agreed. She screamed in delight and
attack hugged him. God, she was going to be the death of him.
“So, you hit T to zoom in, and W zooms back out.” Bob, who
was dressed as Dracula, told Jonathan as he taught the teen to use the video
camera. Jonathan was dressed as Ash and Y/N was dressed as Linda from Evil Dead.
Both of them loved the film and so Y/N was ecstatic at Jonathan’s choice. “See?
Easy peesy. Just make sure you turn off the power to save energy. There.” Bob
pointed to the powers button.
Jonathan swung round and focused the camera on Y/N. “What do
She laughed. “I don’t think the camera goes with your
costume.” He joined her laughing and turned the camera off and threw a casual
arm over her shoulders. A friendly gesture but it made her blush slightly.
“Are you ready, Bud?” Jonathan questioned Will.
“Yeah.” Will replied with a big smile.
“Be safe!” Joyce called the trio as they walked out the
“We will.” Y/N called back with a smile. Joyce was really
happy when Y/N had started hanging out with Jonathan. She believed the girl was
exactly what he needed.
“I hope it doesn’t suck.” Bob said in an imitation of
The trio smiled as they got into the car; Jonathan driving,
Y/N shotgun and Will in the back.
“I just don’t get what she sees in him.” Jonathan said
snapping both Will and Y/N out of their own worlds.
“What?” They both said in unison.
“Bob” Jonathan drew out each letter.
“At least he doesn’t treat me different.” Will muttered. “I
mean I can’t even go trick or treating by myself. It’s lame.”
“What you think we’re lame?” Jonathan asked with a slight
“No. But… It’s not like Nancy’s coming to watch over Mike,
Jonathan and Y/N shared a look as they pulled up outside the
Wheeler’s. Will’s friends were walking towards them. Y/N nodded to Jonathan.
“Hey, listen.” Jonathan turned around to look at Will as
Will pulled on his proton pack.
“Yeah.” Will queried pausing his progress.
“If, we let you go on your own, do you promise to stay in
the neighbourhood.” Jonathan said.
The smile on Will’s face grew. “Yeah! Yeah totally.”
“And be back at Mike’s by 9:00.”
“9:30?” Will tried.
“9:00.” Jonathan emphasised.
“Deal.” Jonathan held out his hand and will shook it.
“Deal.” Will said getting out of the car.
“All right.” Jonathan said as Y/N rolled down the window and
passed Will the camera. “Hey, Will. Don’t let any of your spazzy friends use
that, all right?”
Yeah, bye.” Will said before running over to his friends.
“Sorry I just ruined your night.” Jonathan muttered looking
up at the girl next to him.
“You didn’t. But I suppose we could go to this.” Y/N handed
him an orange flyer that said ‘˜Tina’s Halloween Bash’. “Nancy’s been trying to
get me to go. You wanna check it out?”
“Yeah sure.” He smiled before setting off driving. Y/N
pulled out her Halloween mixtape the pair had been listening to on the way to
school and put it in the car. Jonathan looked across at her and smiled.
They pulled up to the house just as a guy in a floral bed
sheet toga was throwing up the content of his stomach. Jonathan glanced at Y/N
with uncertainty. She just laughed and hopped out of the car. He got out as
well and she grabbed his hand and pulled him inside. He blushed furiously as
they walked into the crowded house. Several times she had to step backwards because
of someone and Jonathan had to put an arm around her waist as she hit his chest
to stop them both falling.
This caused her to blush as well as him and she quickly made
a beeline for Nancy and Steve who were dressed as Lana and Joel from Risky Business.
Nancy, who was pretty drunk, quickly dragged Y/n to the punch bowl as Steve and
Jonathan stood awkwardly.
“Plucked up the courage to ask Y/N out yet?” Steve asked. He
was only slightly intoxicated compared to Nancy.
“She’d never say yes.” Jonathan looked at his shoes.
“You don’t know that until you try.” Steve said wiggling his
It was getting close to time to leave and get Will but Jonathan
was having a hard time trying to locate Y/N. He had looked pretty much
everywhere and was close to giving up when she pretty much fell on him.
“Why, hello there, sweet cheeks.” She slurred and pinched
“What have you had to drink?” Jonathan asked, dumbfounded,
as he slipped an arm around her waist to keep her upright.
“Some punch. It was very strong.” She giggled as Jonathan
led her back to his car.
He was suddenly glad she had agreed to stay at his house; he
didn’t want to explain this to her parents. “Okay, let’s go get Will.” He said
as he buckled her into the car and then got in himself.
Will was waiting outside the Wheeler’s with Mike as Jonathan
pulled up. Will said goodbye and climbed in the back.
“Hey.” He said.
“Hey, ghost fighter.” Y/N said before giggling again.
Will stared at Jonathan in shock. “What happened?”
“We went to a party.” Jonathan explained as he set off.
“The punch was good. We should have brought some for Will.” Y/N exclaimed, her hand landing on Jonathan.s arm.
“I don’t think that would have been a good idea.” Jonathan
muttered as Will laughed.
They pulled up in the Byers driveway and Y/N had pretty much
“How exactly are you going to explain this one to mom?” Will
asked with a laugh.
“Hopefully, if she stays asleep, I won’t have to.” Jonathan
replied as he got out and walked around to Y/N’s side. He slipped one arm under
her legs and another under her back; even while half asleep she wrapped an arm
around his shoulders and buried her face in the crook of his neck. He picked
her up and Will shut the car door. They walked up to the front door and Will
held it open.
“Hey, how’d it go?” Joyce said rather loudly.
Both the boys immediately shushed her and she noticed Y/N
asleep in Jonathan’s arms.
“Fine, but I think it wore Y/N out.” Jonathan said quietly with a chuckle. “I’m
going to put her to bed.”
Jonathan walked into his room as Will showed Joyce and Bob
his haul. He laid her down on the bed and the pulled her shoes and jacket off.
He pulled the covers over her and went to walk out but she caught his hand and
pulled him into the bed with her.
“Stay.” She mumbled.
“Okay.” Jonathan whispered and kicked his shoes off and
pulled his jacket off.
“Night, Jon. I love you.” She muttered in a slight slur and Jonathan nearly
choked on air.
“What?” He asked, his voice shaking violently. But she was
You don’t believe him. I understand that, it sounds like nonsense. But if destiny has brought Daenerys Targaryen back to our shores, it has also made Jon Snow King in the North. You were the first to bring Dothraki to Westeros? He is the first to make allies of wildlings and Northmen. He was named Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, he was named King in the North. Not because of his birthright. He has no birthright, he’s a damn bastard. All thosehard sons of bitches chose him as their leader because they believe in him. All those things you don’t believe in,he faced those things. He fought those things for the good of his people. He risked his life for his people. He took a knife in the heart for his people. He gave his own… If we don’t put aside our enmities and band together, we will die. And then it doesn't matter whose skeleton sits on the Iron Throne.
