i'm crying i had never seen these before

so today my professor told us how she found her 8 year old neighbor crying on his way home from school last week and when she asked what happened, he told her that while he was at hockey tryouts these white boys called him the N word and told him that black people couldn’t play hockey. she felt so bad for him because she said he was always sweet and well mannered to her. she convinced her brother to give up his tickets to see the Flyers vs Habs game so she could give it to her neighbor. somehow he ended up meeting Wayne Simmonds and the boy’s father told him what happened.

apparently Wayne had a really sad look on his face after he heard what happened but he told the kid to not give up even though people’s words can hurt. and when Wayne told the kid that he believed in him and that he could be the greatest hockey player in the world and maybe even play for the Flyers one day if he didn’t give up, the kid started to cry. later Wayne gave the boy his email address and said that if those boys ever messed with him again, that he was to email him and that he would have his back.

after the boy and father thanked Wayne, he had a big smile on his face and just said, “us handsome fellas gotta stick together, eh?”

Steve finding a letter addressed to him from Peggy after her funeral telling him how proud she was of him and how she would always love him and to never give up hope. Steve crying halfway through because there goes another piece of his heart and wishing Bucky had gotten to see her before she died. He finally gets the last paragraph in which she tells him to “take care of James, he and I always did have so much in common”. Turns out Bucky had indeed seen her. She was the one who suggested keeping the notebooks, she had some experience with keeping track of a faulty memory after all.

anonymous asked:

Kondou was overly worried about Souji ever since he got ill and despite his busy schedule, he wouldn't rest until he had seen his precious, to him; son, before laying his eyes to rest. With a bowl of self-made soup, he peeked from behind the door and see if Souji was awake, ' Souji--' He whispered, hoping not to wake him up if he was asleep but if not; I've got soup for you. How much he adored that boy!

[剣] – Kondou was never any good at sneaking up on the captain. It wasn’t because the commander wasn’t stealthy when he wanted to be, but Souji seemed to always be attuned to the presence of the man he considered his foster father—the only father he ever really knew. He knows he could recognize the man even if he were blind, by smell, or touch alone; he would know him by the way his breaths came and his feet struck the earth. Kondou was more than just a parental figure to Souji, he was his savior. 

He sits up the moment he hears Kondou’s footfalls against the wooden floors, a smile already curving the captain’s lips. Just knowing that the older man had taken the time to visit him made his heart soar.

The scent of the steaming broth wafts through the air—and was that green onions in it as well? Ugh… though Souji doesn’t allow for the distaste he has for the vegetable to show, his smile never faltering as he calls out to the other. “Ohayou Kondou-san!~ I’m awake. That soup smells delicious, is it for me?!~”

I may have gotten incredibly bored and written some Troyler fanfic....

I’ve never written fanfic before so I’m sorry that it’s shit…

Troyler finally announce that they’re dating, and they’ve now been together for two and a half years. Tyler is vlogging a day out with Troye…

——————–

As Tyler and I walked through the park, I looked around. It was virtually empty, no viewers that could ruin what I was about to do. I reached for Tyler’s hand and dragged him over to sit underneath a tree with me. Tyler got out his camera, once again.

‘HEEEEEEEYYYYYY. So Troye and I are just chilling in the park, having an amazing time. Just because we can. And if this vlog annoys you then I’m sorry but you can fuck off. I spent over a year keeping this little munchkin quiet so now I want to share every single moment with him, with you. Well. Not every moment….’ He winked at me and I rolled my eyes. 'Though seriously, obviously we don’t share everything, so please don’t think that we do. But we just wanted to share a nice chilled day with you!’

'Speaking of sharing’ I piped up. 'I want to do something now and I want Ty to film it. He can choose whether he wants to upload it afterwards.’ I leant forward and kissed his cheek.

'Wait, babe, what are you gonna do?’ Tyler asked me, looking confused.

I smiled. 'I’m going to sing to you. It’s an old time classic of mine, 'We’re My OTP’, with a couuuuuuuple of changes.’ I took a deep breath. 'You ready?’

'Let me just set up the camera.’ Tyler replied.

Come on Tyler! I was nervous enough as it was. Was I really going to do this?

Tyler had balanced his camera on the bench next to us so that it was the perfect height. 'Okay, ready.’ He said.

'Okay.’ I smiled. And then I started singing.

'Valentines day is creeping up on me,
Still staring at you on my computer screen,
Trying to skype you in the middle of the night,
You’re gonna pick up, right?’

Tyler giggled, and I smiled back at him, before continuing.

'Long distance won’t work, the peasant cries,
Shut the fuck up bitch, do you wanna die?
And I’ve told you before, can you hear?
I’ve fallen in love with a youtuber…’

I looked over at Tyler and he was welling up. And so was I.

'Fuck I’m so emotional’ he muttered.

'OTP, we’re my OTP,
Baby you and me, we are so sexy, oh
OTP, we’re my OTP,
Baby you and me, we are so sexy, oh

We worked real hard to keep Troyler quiet,
We tried to say we’re friends but our people didn’t buy it,
Well now we’re public I can say how I feel,
I love you so much and it doesn’t seem real,

I love you always, I love you 5ever,
I love you even more than I love Nutella

(That’s a lot)’

Tyler was now full on crying. I swallowed and blinked back tears before carrying on with the song.

'OTP, we’re my OTP,
Baby you and me, we are so sexy, oh
OTP, we’re my OTP,
Baby you and me, we are so sexy, oh

OTP, we’re my OTP,
Baby you and me, we are so sexy, oh
OTP, we’re my OTP,
Baby you and me, we are so sexy…’

I paused. This is it. I’m really going to do it.

'No, literally the only thing that’s stopping us from getting married is that… Oh wait… There’s no reason.’ I pulled the ring out of my pocket. 'Tyler Oakley, will you marry me?’

'What the fuck are you doing to me Troye Sivan?!’ I’d never seen Tyler cry so much. 'Of course I’ll marry you, you romantic idiot.’ He leant forward and we kissed passionately, before I broke away and said 'we’re still recording…’

Tyler shrugged and said 'I’ll edit it out…’

I nodded, then said 'and we’re in a public place…’

’…oh yeah.’

'Now stop fucking crying and we’ll talk to the camera properly. Oh, and put the fucking ring on’ I laughed.
