I had the urge to draw Victuuri again! Originally, I thought of sketching them taking a shower together (since, well, shower in affection kept blasting in my mind), but it turned out to be a lazy morning instead, oof. 

I will do some more sketches of this lovely couple before this month ends. ^^

Dirty thunderstorm

A dirty thunderstorm (also volcanic lightning, thunder volcano) is a weather phenomenon that is related to the production of lightning in a volcanic plume.

A study in the journal Science indicated that electrical charges are generated when rock fragments, ash, and ice particles in a volcanic plume collide and produce static charges, just as ice particles collide in regular thunderstorms.

Volcanic eruptions are sometimes accompanied by flashes of lightning. However, this lightning doesn’t descend from storm clouds in the sky. It is generated within the ash cloud spewing from the volcano, in a process called charge separation.

Solar System: Things to Know This Week

Our solar system is a jewel box filled with a glittering variety of beautiful worlds–and not all of them are planets. This week, we present our solar system’s most marvelous moons.

1. Weird Weather: Titan

Saturn’s hazy moon Titan is larger than Mercury, but its size is not the only way it’s like a planet. Titan has a thick atmosphere, complete with its own “water cycle” – except that it’s way too cold on Titan for liquid water. Instead, rains of liquid hydrocarbons like ethane and methane fall onto icy mountains, run into rivers, and gather into great seas. Our Cassini spacecraft mapped the methane seas with radar, and its cameras even caught a glimpse of sunlight reflecting off the seas’ surface. Learn more about Titan: saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/science/titan/

2. Icy Giant: Ganymede

Jupiter’s moon Ganymede is the largest in the solar system. It’s bigger than Mercury and Pluto, and three-quarters the size of Mars. It’s also the only moon known to have its own magnetic field. Details: solarsystem.nasa.gov/planets/ganymede/indepth

3. Retrograde Rebel: Triton

Triton is Neptune’s largest moon, and the only one in the solar system to orbit in the opposite direction of its planet’s rotation, a retrograde orbit. It may have been captured from the Kuiper Belt, where Pluto orbits. Despite the frigid temperatures there, Triton has cryovolcanic activity – frozen nitrogen sometimes sublimates directly to gas and erupts from geysers on the surface. More on Triton: solarsystem.nasa.gov/planets/triton/indepth

4. Cold Faithful: Enceladus

The most famous geysers in our solar system (outside of those on Earth) belong to Saturn’s moon Enceladus. It’s a small, icy body, but Cassini revealed this world to be one of the solar system’s most scientifically interesting destinations. Geyser-like jets spew water vapor and ice particles from an underground ocean beneath the icy crust of Enceladus. With its global ocean, unique chemistry and internal heat, Enceladus has become a promising lead in our search for worlds where life could exist. Get the details: saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/science/enceladus/

5. Volcano World: Io

Jupiter’s moon Io is subjected to tremendous gravitational forces that cause its surface to bulge up and down by as much as 330 feet (100 m). The result? Io is the most volcanically active body in the Solar System, with hundreds of volcanoes, some erupting lava fountains dozens of miles high. More on Io’s volcanoes: solarsystem.nasa.gov/planets/io/indepth

6. Yin and Yang Moon: Iapetus

When Giovanni Cassini discovered Iapetus in 1671, he observed that one side of this moon of Saturn was bright and the other dark. He noted that he could only see Iapetus on the west side of Saturn, and correctly concluded that Iapetus had one side much darker than the other side. Why? Three centuries later, the Cassini spacecraft solved the puzzle. Dark, reddish dust in Iapetus’s orbital path is swept up and lands on the leading face of the moon. The dark areas absorb energy and become warmer, while uncontaminated areas remain cooler. Learn more: saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/news/2892/cassini-10-years-at-saturn-top-10-discoveries/#nine

7. A Double World: Charon and Pluto

At half the size of Pluto, Charon is the largest of Pluto’s moons and the largest known satellite relative to its parent body. The moon is so big compared to Pluto that Pluto and Charon are sometimes referred to as a double planet system. Charon’s orbit around Pluto takes 6.4 Earth days, and one Pluto rotation (a Pluto day) takes 6.4 Earth days. So from Pluto’s point of view Charon neither rises nor sets, but hovers over the same spot on Pluto’s surface, and the same side of Charon always faces Pluto. Get the details: www.nasa.gov/feature/pluto-and-charon-new-horizons-dynamic-duo

8. “Death Star” Moon: Mimas

Saturn’s moon Mimas has one feature that draws more attention than any other: the crater Herschel, which formed in an impact that nearly shattered the little world. Herschel gives Mimas a distinctive look that prompts an oft-repeated joke. But, yes, it’s a moon. More: olarsystem.nasa.gov/planets/mimas

9. Don’t Be Afraid, It’s Just Phobos

In mythology, Mars is a the god of war, so it’s fitting that its two small moons are called Phobos, “fear,” and Deimos, “terror.” Our Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter caught this look at Phobos, which is roughly 17 miles (27 km) wide. In recent years, NASA scientists have come to think that Phobos will be torn apart by its host planet’s gravity. Details: www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/phobos-is-falling-apart

Learn more about Phobos: solarsystem.nasa.gov/planets/phobos/indepth

10. The Moon We Know Best

Although decades have passed since astronauts last set foot on its surface, Earth’s moon is far from abandoned. Several robotic missions have continued the exploration. For example, this stunning view of the moon’s famous Tycho crater was captured by our Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, which continues to map the surface in fine detail today.

Poor snow person

This video comes from a just-published paper studying the dynamics of avalanches using detailed computer simulations of the physics of the snow. Turns out that, according to the authors, they started with code that was written by Disney for use in simulating snow for the movie Frozen, so this is science with an assist from Disney.

Flying With Fuel From Plants: The Eco-friendly Way to Go

We eat them. We make medicines out of them. Now we’re learning how to use plants as airplane fuel that helps the environment.

Using biofuels to help power jet engines reduces particle emissions in their exhaust by as much as 50 to 70 percent, according to a new study that bodes well for airline economics and Earth’s atmosphere.

The findings are the result of a cooperative international research program led by NASA and involving agencies from Germany and Canada, and are detailed in a study published in the journal Nature.

Our flight tests collected information about the effects of alternative fuels on engine performance, emissions and aircraft-generated contrails – essentially, human-made clouds - at altitudes flown by commercial airliners. 

The DC-8’s four engines burned either JP-8 jet fuel or a 50-50 blend of JP-8 and renewable alternative fuel of hydro processed esters and fatty acids produced from camelina plant oil. Credits: NASA/SSAI Edward Winstead

Contrails are produced by hot aircraft engine exhaust mixing with the cold air that is typical at cruise altitudes several miles above Earth’s surface, and are composed primarily of water in the form of ice crystals.

Researchers are interested in contrails because they create clouds that would not normally form in the atmosphere, and are believed to influence Earth’s environment. 

The alternative fuels tested reduced those emissions. That’s important because contrails have a larger impact on Earth’s atmosphere than all the aviation-related carbon dioxide emissions since the first powered flight by the Wright Brothers.

It shows the NASA HU-25C Guardian aircraft flying 250 meters behind NASA’s DC-8 aircraft before it descends into the DC-8’s exhaust plumes to sample ice particles and engine emissions.

Researchers plan on continuing these studies to understand the benefits of replacing current fuels in aircraft with biofuels.

words about snow in swedish

first a disclaimer about the swedish language

swedish can create compound words pretty freely, wherehas there is really no limit to words one create by compounding it with the swedish word for snow, “snö”. but i tried to use compounds that are commonly considered words in swedish. also, this list will list things that in general has to do snow and winter weather in scandinavia. so there is also, some compound words that use the swedish words for ice and hail among these.

the general words for ice, snow and hail

is - ice 

snö - snow

hagel - hail

different types of snow

kramsnö - snow one can build forexemple a snowman with. Kramsnö appear when it is around the melting point outside. around 0 celcius that is.

tösnö - the way snow is when the weather is around 0 celcius, and it has started to melt. can be a synonym för kramsnö.

nysnö - translates to “new snow”. nysnö is snow that has recently fallen and covered the ground.

pudersnö - translates to “powder snow”. snow that is covering the ground like a light powder.

skare - a snow layer which has started to melt, but then froze again. looks like snow, but is slipperly as ice. also got a layer of non - skare underneath it. the curse of anyone trying to walk around.

snöflinga - snowflake

upplega - snow collected on the top of tree - twigs. word used in forest industry.

spårsnö - snow with tracks from animals or humans

snökanon -  ocean-effect snow, a weather phenomena

words about hail

hagel - hail

snöhagel, trindsnö -  snow hail. different from hail. according to rumour. apperntly trindsnö has a different way to meet the ground than ice - hail. jaså.

ishagel - ice - hail.  wiki tells me there is an important difference. idk.

Iskorn - the ice particles in hail, if they are of a particle smallish size.

diamantstoft, isnålar - snow which falls from a clear sky, and has very small particles.


melting snow and ice

dagsmeja - during late winter and early spring, when the sun makes the snow melt, despite it still being below freezing outside. during dagsmeja this melting stops when the sun is no longer hitting the now directly.

töar - verb. when snow is melting

tö, töväder - name for when snow is melting, and also describes the general weather type when snow starts melting one might say “det är töväder idag” [=it is tö - weather today].

slask - the mix of snow and water that appear when it is “töar” aka the snow is melting.

and many many more words

there are like…. so many words. feel free to list more swedish words related to snow, ice, hail and the cold season!

could you do a bad boy calum cause oh my lord I live for bad boy calum xx

why u gotta fuck me up like this anon ?? THANK U I HAD SO MUCH FUN WRITING THIS SORRY IF IT’S LAME

There he stood - the stupidly handsome Calum Hood. A cigarette in hand, occasionally bringing it up to his lips to take a long drag in hopes it would kill him a little faster. Most people avoided him, and he preferred it like that. The way he walked, talked, and acted was enough to say that you should stay far, far away from him; but you weren’t going to deny your aching heart the chance to sneak a look at him every once in a while. You couldn’t deny the fact that the mop of black curls that sat on his head made your heart leap, or that his brown eyes made you swoon. You also couldn’t deny the fact that you despised smoking, and yet, seeing him standing by his motorbike, helmet under his arm with the cigarette resting between his plump lips was a sight that you could never get used to. You looked at him intermittently from the bench sitting a fair distance away. You were mesmerized by the way he breathed out the toxic smoke and how it mingled with the morning fog that blanketed the river ahead of you. You brought your coffee close to your lips and sniffed in the scent of the brewed beverage, letting out a heavy sigh, watching your own breath turn into minuscule ice particles. You were thankful you had such a warm object cupped in your hands, and you feared if you didn’t the tips of your fingers might have fallen off. It was then that you wished you hadn’t worn finger-less gloves.

3. Into the Vortex

A new device called the vortex coronagraph was recently installed inside NIRC2 (Near Infrared Camera 2) at the W.M. Keck Observatory in Hawaii and has delivered its first images, showing a ring of planet-forming dust around a star, and separately, a cool, star-like body, called a brown dwarf, lying near its companion star.

4. Enceladus: Cassini Cracks the Code of the Icy Moon

A puzzling sensor reading transformed our Cassini Saturn mission and created a new target in the search for habitable worlds beyond Earth, when on Feb. 17, 2005, Cassini made the first-ever close pass over Saturn’s moon. Since our two Voyager spacecraft made their distant flybys of Enceladus about 20 years prior, scientists had anticipated the little moon would be an interesting place to visit. Enceladus is bright white – the most reflective object in the solar system, in fact – and it orbits in the middle of a faint ring of dust-sized ice particles known as Saturn’s E ring. Scientists speculated ice dust was being kicked off its surface somehow. But they presumed it would be, essentially, a dead, airless ball of ice.

What Cassini saw didn’t look like a frozen, airless body. Instead, it looked something like a comet that was actively emitting gas. The magnetometer detected that Saturn’s magnetic field, which envelops Enceladus, was perturbed above the moon’s south pole in a way that didn’t make sense for an inactive world. Could it be that the moon was actively replenishing gases it was breathing into space? Watch the video.

5. Descent Into a Frozen Underworld

Our planet’s southernmost active volcano reaches 12,448 feet (3,794 meters) above Ross Island in Antarctica. It’s a good stand-in for a frozen alien world, the kind we want to send robots to someday. Learn more: solarsystem.nasa.gov/news/2017/02/13/descent-into-a-frozen-underworld

Hehehe! Headcanons of RFA trying to win a prize for mc at the carnival by throwing a ball at a target, but it bounces off and hits her in the face! Giving her a black eye >:3

Hehe, funny scenario XD Enjoy~


Zen:

  • He thought it would be romantic to win you one of those stuffed animals
  • He had complete confidence in his aim
  • But he miscalculated his strength
  • He hit the target with the ball, but it came bouncing back and hitting you right in the eye
  • Immediately, he cradles your head and covers your eye with his hand
  • Now you’re half suffocated and had a growing black eye
  • The vendor felt so bad, he gave you two of those huge stuffed animals
  • Meanwhile, Zen feels horrible
  • You notice he can’t meet your eyes and he’s more mopey
  • He didn’t start cheering up until you reassured him it was just an accident–for the fiftieth time
  • He was kind enough not to take pictures for the rest of the day…

Yoosung:

  • He sees you eying this big panda hanging at one of those games
  • So he determines to win it for you
  • He drags you over and starts
  • His first try ended up with the ball on the ground
  • The second ended up missing
  • By the last attempt, he was really frustrated so he put all his force into it
  • Bad idea, since it bounced back and hit you right in the eye
  • He panics and rushes you away to a bench
  • He disappears, but when he comes back, he’s carrying ice, some goggles, and the panda you wanted
  • He bought it, since he felt so bad and didn’t want to play it to get it again
  • He placed the goggles ontop of the stuffed animal and handed it to you
  • “The goggles are to shield you from another clumsy stunt. Because I’m a monster.”
  • You start giggling and telling him he’s not a monster, all while patting his arm comfortingly
  • Thankfully, he’s not upset too long once he sees you laughing and being your normal self

Jaehee:

  • You were trying to get her to try the game
  • But she protested until near the end of the day
  • When she tried the game, she won on her first try
  • She was so ecstatic, but felt bad about saying no earlier
  • So, she said she was going to win you one of the big stuffed bears
  • Her aim wasn’t just slightly off this time
  • The ball bounced back and hit you hard in the eye
  • She was in shock
  • She stared at the ball…then her hands…then at you
  • A few other people were also staring at you in shock
  • Even the vendor was just gaping
  • “I need some ice,” you exasperate when nearly three minutes had passed
  • Jaehee jumps into action after that
  • She feels bad, but makes up for it by pampering you and helping you with the black eye

Jumin:

  • It was one of those things that he hadn’t tried before
  • So you encouraged him to do it for the prize of a big stuffed cat
  • He agreed…but he was horrible at it
  • You guys were there for quite awhile
  • He bought more attempts to throw the ball than the stuffed animal was actually worth
  • But he was determined to hit the target at least once
  • At that point, you weren’t even paying attention, so you didn’t see when it bounced off the target and went straight towards your eye
  • Unfortunately, neither did Jumin
  • He smiles widely as he realizes he hit the target, and then turns to you to cheer
  • But he sees you clutching your eye
  • “What happened? Who did this?” until he realizes it was him
  • You try to reassure him that it’s fine, but he sees your black eye and he’s super upset 
  • “I said I would never hurt you–and now look.”

Seven:

  • He hadn’t exactly had much past experience in dating
  • But he did remember seeing it in a show once, so he pulls you over to a stand and says he’s going to win you a stuffed animal
  • It was once those things where you shoot a ball into the hoop
  • Seven, trying to impress you, starts explaining how it was an easy shot and using all these physics terms
  • The guy running the ride was getting annoyed…so he looks Seven dead in the eye and pulls a lever
  • The hoops suddenly starts moving in rapid circles
  • Seven still tries to make the shot, but something goes wrong and the ball hits the rim and bounces straight into your face
  • Seven goes into full on panic mode when he sees your eye start bruising
  • Not thinking, he drags you to the nearest icee stand, scoops a snow cone into a cup, and presses it against your eye
  • Now your eye is fine, but you have ice particles dropping all over your face and down your shirt
  • Seven keeps asking “are you okay?” every two seconds until you reassure him in a high squeaky voice that you’re fine

This speculator photo of Polar Stratospheric Clouds (PSC’s) were captured over NASA’s Radome at McMurdo Station in Antarctica in September 2013.

PSC’s form at an altitude of between 15,000 and 25,000 metres (49,000-82,000 ft) where temperatures of around -85ºC are reached. The clouds are comprised of ice particles around 10 µm across and it is these ice crystals which set the stage for the characteristic bright iridescent colours. The crystals diffract and interfere sunlight when it is low on the horizon; between 1 and 6 degrees.

While these clouds are undoubtedly beautiful, they are also implicated in the formation of ozone holes. Some PSC’s are more exotic in their ingredients and may contain nitric or sulphuric acid. As a result, their surfaces can then act as catalysts which convert chlorine into active free radicals. During the return of spring sunlight these radicals destroy many ozone molecules in a series of chain reactions.

Fresh Tiger Stripes on Saturn’s Enceladus

Do underground oceans vent through the tiger stripes on Saturn’s moon Enceladus? Long features dubbed tiger stripes are known to be spewing ice from the moon’s icy interior into space, creating a cloud of fine ice particles over the moon’s South Pole and creating Saturn’s mysterious E-ring. Evidence for this has come from the robot Cassini spacecraft that orbited Saturn from 2004 to 2017. Pictured here, a high resolution image of Enceladus is shown from a close flyby. The unusual surface features dubbed tiger stripes are visible in false-color blue. Why Enceladusis active remains a mystery, as the neighboring moon Mimas,approximately the same size, appears quite dead. A recent analysis of ejected ice grains has yielded evidence that complex organic molecules exist inside Enceladus. These large carbon-rich molecules bolster – but do not prove – that oceans under Enceladus’ surface couldcontain life.

Title: Until then, Alola.

A/N: I can’t believe this, my first Imagine. It was supposed to be a short one. A sentence to get you thinking. Needless to say, it got out of hand FAST.

Pairing: Gladion x Reader or Gladion x Sun/Moon if you prefer.

Y/N is Your Name.

You are chatting with Rotom when you hear the familiar chirp of footsteps up the stairs leading to your Champion Room. It’s the middle of the day and the sun is shining brightly against the minerals embedded in the walls, ricocheting over the glass and creating a rainbow effect. It’s just the kind of time you expect Hau to come in and challenge you again or for Acerola to come and chat about when you’d go visit Kanto to see Lillie. You’d tell her to say hi to Lillie for you of course, because you’re the Champion now and she’s an Elite Four member and you can’t take a leave of absence at the same time.

What shocks you out of your now tangential train of thought is the fact that it’s not Hau standing in front of your Champion’s seat.

Instead of your sunny and energetic friend, it’s the sullen, determined, oddly endearing Team Skull member, Lillie’s brother, and not friend but not enemy, Gladion.

Part Four: The Birth of Planets

Last time, we talked about how when a nebula–a cloud of gas and dust in space–gets moving, the center starts to burn, thus birthing a star. While all that’s happening, the nebula is swirling, and in a way similar to how the air currents of your house push dust and particles together to form dust bunnies, so too do bits and pieces within the nebula start to bump into each other, forming globs that get bigger as they travel around the central star. And of course, as they get bigger, these clumps begin to weigh more, drawing in other clumps around it, and eventually you get the beginnings of a planet.

Now, if you might recall, the star at the center of the nebula is burning and what’s it’s fuel? Gas! Usually hydrogen. This, in addition to the heat being let off by the star, results in the center portions of the dust cloud to mostly be bits of rock and dust–the star has accumulated most of the gas around itself, and burned off any of the ice particles. Further out in the disc, however, the gases and ice chunks remain.

So as planets begin to form, generally the pattern that emerges is that the closer to the star a planet is, the more rocky it is, and the further out it is, the more gas and/or ice it’s likely to have. Not only that, but following the logic that the star has accumulated quite a bit already, the planets forming closer to the star have less to scoop up–less gases, less ice, just… less. So the planets forming in the outer portion of the nebula are more likely to be larger (not necessarily more weight, remember. A cloud is quite large, and paperclip isn’t, but the paperclip has more weight than the cloud; it is more massive.).

The Habitable Zone:

Now, assuming your star can exist long enough to life to develop on its planets, and assuming that we actually have any understanding of what’s required for life to exist, your planet needs to be in the Habitable Zone. We currently work under the assumption that habitability of a planet requires liquid water to be available year round. Whether that’s a truth for all life in the universe is a different question that I can’t answer, but for now, that’s our definition of a habitable planet. This also assumes that we’re talking about planets on which life develops on its own, rather than planets where life can be brought and find ways to exist.

The distance from the star at which liquid water is available for the duration of the planet’s orbit depends on the life stage of the star. Remember that older stars, burning red, are starting to exhaust their fuel supply. They burn cooler, so in order for a planet to stay within a comfortable range of the star where it would be neither too hot nor too cold, a planet would need to be closer than if it were orbiting a young, hot, bright star. Take a look:

In this diagram, you can see what I’m talking about. Earth sits comfortably within the habitable zone for our yellow sun, but when our sun begins to die, the habitable zone will shift.Venus and Mercury may eventually come to land smack-dab in the middle of that zone. If the star remains stable in that temperature/age range for long enough (billions of years), then it’s possible that the planet in the adjusted habitable zone, now that it has better conditions, might be able to spark its own life–maybe. Of course, the planet that was in the habitable zone before, has already died a painful and freezing death.

One more illustration. This one shows the habitable zone as the green ring, with blue being too cold and red being too warm.

What Does All This Mean For a Writer?

It’s unlikely that creatures or life forms would be able to evolve into anything on planets outside the habitable zone. Those places too close to and too far from the star aren’t going to be harboring life. Make sure that you’re placing your planet at an appropriate distance for the type of star you have. If your star is red, your planet needs to be closer, with the star large on the horizon. If your star is blue, your planet needs to be further out with the star smaller on the horizon.

One more thing, which is mostly hypothetical. Throughout the lifetime of your star, the planets that had life on them could conceivably have been farther from the star, with life possible on planets closer to the star as the star continues to age and cool off. Who cares, though, right?

Well, if your race is space-faring, there’s a possibility that remnants of life could be in evidence on planets further from the sun. Of course, this depends entirely on what kind of core the planet has and what “life” and “remnants of life” your characters are looking for. There’s not likely to be the foundations of houses on gaseous stars, since life forms of a gaseous star would need to exist in a very different way than, say, humans. But places like Mars, that used to be in the habitable zone and are also rocky places? Who knows. I’m just saying maybe, and if there were books written with that, I wouldn’t throw it out a window.

Next up: More than one star!

#582.5 - Vanillite are born from icicles bathing in energy from the morning sun; wishing not to melt, these Pokemon were formed instead. Vanillite need to remain cold in order to keep from melting, and will sleep buried in snow. The cold air they exhale is -58 degrees Fahrenheit, which they use to create snow crystals. As they age, they gain better control over their icy breath, and will cool down the surrounding air to hide in a swath of ice particles, or to attack and freeze their foes.

#583.5 - Vanillish live in snowy mountains, though they can sometimes be seen further south, though these individuals are smaller than average Vanillish. Hot days cause their bodies to melt, which leaves them vulnerable and weak until they can refreeze. A Vanilluxe is born when two Vanillish, half-melted by the day’s light, stick to each other and freeze together in the cold return of night. The two Vanillish will learn to work together to survive, blasting powerful blizzards from their two mouths.

Helping Hand

You sat at your desk, currently immersed in the project you were currently working on for biology. Unfortunately for you, you were left with a useless partner… again.

You held the pen angrily in your hand, almost wanting to just destroy this project so your so called partner will get a zero. But that wasn’t an option, it was a joined grade so if he failed unfortunately so did you. 

*knock, knock* 

You were too busy focusing on your current formula to notice the faint knock at your bedroom window. Pushing the glasses further up your nose, you crossed out a few equations that wouldn’t work and decided to make a new one, but this time you weren’t just going to find a solution to the problem, you were going to figure out how to prevent the problem from even happening in the first place.

*knock*

This one was louder so you heard it pretty clearly. You spun your head around to see a guy in a red and blue spandex… not again.

You shake your head and get up, walking over to your bedroom window and flip over the switch. You lived in a set of apartment blocks so to even get to your windows you had to climb the fire escape 20 stories up. 

You opened the window, noticing that ‘Bug Boy’ was again… injured. 

“What am I going to do with you…”

~Few months back

To say that walking this late at night back home wasn’t at least a little bit terrifying would be a lie. Though you have done this many times, it still wasn’t safe. This was Queens in New York city but still you were in the city, the crime rate at least being 60% higher than surrounding suburbs. 

You hugged your black coat closer around your body, it was just the beginning of winter which meant the winds suddenly felt like ice particles scraping against your skin. How can it seriously get so cold so quick? Global warming probably. 

You rounded the corner, with a little hop in your step you saw your apartment block just at the end of the road. 

“Help! Please someone help!” You halted. You glanced left and right, wondering were the shouting.. screaming was coming from. 

“HELP!” This time you started to move, closer and closer to the source of the sound. Pretty stupid idea isn’t it? Call the cops and let them handle this? 

So that’s exactly what you did. You reached inside your pocket for your iphone and began to dial 911. 

“Drop it” You froze, you could feel cool metal pressed against the side of your head. Gulping nervously you began to let the phone slip through your fingers. 

“Hello 911, What’s your emerge-” The sound of your phone being crashed into a million pieces. Sure enough the guy to your right had stomped on your phone causing it to shatter. 

What were you to do in this situation? You’ve done what he says now what? 

“Move” wow this guys vocabulary is so extensive. 

Without hesitation you did as he said, you began to walk slowly. 

“For fucks sake” You could feel the cool metal pressed against your head replaced by a firm grip on your upper right arm, he was literally now dragging you along with him. To say it hurt would be an understatement this man had an iron grip but you weren’t going to complain. Not unless you wanted a bullet planted inside your skull. 

He pushed you forward into a dark alleyway where you could see a women being held by her throat against the wall. You took a deep breath, not wanting the reality for your situation to sink through. This is just a dream, this isn’t real, you can wake up now Y/N.

Without realizing it you’ve stopped moving, causing the guy to become more irritated with you. 

The girl or… woman who was held again the wall turned her head slightly to face you, tears streaming down her face along with blood which seemed to be from the wounds across her face.

“Keep it moving Missy” Your eyes began to become blurry with tears and it wasn’t until now your heart was starting to beat at an alarming rate. You were too in shock to notice you were literally in a life and death situation. 

“W-what’s happenin-n-ng” You stuttered out. 

You were patiently waiting for a response from the guy holding onto your arm- wait a minute. You glanced to your right to see that the guy that was holding you was now in fact gone.

“What the hell!” You turned in the opposite direction to see the guy now.. tapped? across the wall. Wait tape doesn’t look like that. 

You heard a grunt and turned around again, seeing the guy that was holding up the lady in a choke hold now lying on the ground in pain. Without thinking about it you walked closer over to the woman, making sure she was alright. You helped her back up to her feet, while letting your eyes rapidly search the alleyway for who just saved your life. 

“Y-y-your h-i-i-im” Once you had your arm firmly wrapped around the woman’s waist you looked up to the guy who originally held you at gun point stutter. 

It wasn’t till now that you saw who your savior was.

“Spiderman”

~Present

After that he used his webs as mode of transport to take the lady from your arms and swung her back to safety. 

“Stay here and don’t move” All you did was nod.

Sooner than later he in fact came back, making sure you were alright and wanted to take you home. You shook your head saying to him you only lived down the road and instead of replying he just lead the way. You guessed he was taking you home. 

Ever since that night you thought you would never see him again or at least kinda hopped… seeing you didn’t feel like being in a life death situation ever again. 

Though not two nights later you found him at your bedroom window, the one he took you in so you didn’t have to wake your parents and explain what had happened. 

You were surprised to say the least but didn’t hesitate to open the window. 

“You wouldn’t happen to have a first aid kit on you by a chance?” He spoke out through heavy breathing, obviously in pain. 

Little did you know this would be the start of your guys little rendezvous.
