in pretty cute on the news

anonymous asked:

did you seriously just say we should let pandas go extinct to save other animals or am i misinterpreting because that is a very questionable judgement

ALRIGHT MY FRIEND I have received about six messages in this vein since yesterday, but I worked for thirteen hours today and I have no time for this nonsense. Short answer: YES. 

I’m gonna summarize some salient points on why pandas are awful from a conservation standpoint:

  • PANDAS LITERALLY CANNOT MATE IN CAPTIVITY. IT’S UNBELIEVABLE
  • Artificial insemination and hand-rearing of cubs are basically standard practice, and still they usually die. At what point is it reasonable to give up because I think we hit it DECADES AGO
  • In 35 years, only 90 cubs have been born in captivity outside of China
  • Wild panda numbers have increased a bare (bear?) 200 individuals in 10 years, despite literal billions of dollars being poured into conservation
  • NO OTHER AREA OF ANIMAL CONSERVATION EVEN COMES CLOSE TO THE MONEY BEING POURED INTO PANDAS. NONE
  • And yet we’ve managed to literally rebuild populations of black-footed ferrets, oryx, and California condors with exponentially less money
  • Despite all of this, only 10 pandas have been released since the 80s, and all but two died
  • I bet you wouldn’t have guessed that it’s because their habitat is destroyed and fragmentary and barely protected!!!!!! 
  • The only good thing about panda conservation is that protecting their range is also protecting tons of other species. Which would be great, if more of their range was being protected effectively.
  • There is way more money in keeping captive pandas captive than in releasing them!! surprise!!!!!!
  • Zoos pay a lot of money to get pandas on loan because people just LOVE looking at pandas and they can’t afford to house and care for their other animals without people coming to visit! Or do any kind of conservation whatsoever!! Panda-economics! (this is kind of a pro as opposed to a con but its the kind of pro that makes me feel like I need a shower)
  • Pandas are endangered and sort of have a role in spreading bamboo seeds around, so they get billions of dollars. Every shark ever is MORE endangered, and without them the entire ocean ecosystem would collapse, but that’s fine they don’t need money (I’m not bitter) ((I am bitter))

I’m gonna be frank with you. We are in the middle of a mass extinction event, caused by us. Not to be a downer (jk, I’m gonna) but we’re already driving so many species to extinction that we cannot afford to save them all with the money and interest that is in conservation right now. 

Instead, we have to do some kind of awful extinction triage and assess which animals will do the most good to work to conserve - and getting into keystone species, ecosystem engineers, and other truly integral species is a whole other can of worms I’m not gonna touch on - but there are animals that are “more important” in a certain sense than others, in that they can support or affect a much wider range of other species than another

People only care about big, cute, fluffy animals - a common lament heard from conservationists, but it’s so true. There are thousands, if not millions of species that don’t fit this mold that conservation work would benefit eons more than pandas. It’s like fixing a pretty, stained-glass window in a house whose foundations are collapsing and thinking you’re helping. 

Pandas have always been the face of conservation, and they continue to be one of the biggest and most expensive ongoing failures.

                                         Reasons I love AvAc! Stony

1. The first conversation that Tony and Steve ever have, they admit they like each other. Steve is just recruited and he wants to run for class president. Tony suggests he just take it but Steve says, “I like you Tony, but don’t ever disrespect the election process.” And Tony smiles and replies, “I like you too Cap, but by now you should know that I pretty much disrespect everything.” Then Tony campaigns for Cap anyway ;)

2. During the Civil War event, Tony made a Capsuit to put on a show for Steve. It was a cute ordeal more than anything, and Tony asks for a hug from Steve. Steve says no, and Tony apparently has a simulator where he’s hugging Steve in it. After, there’s a picture during the news announcement of Steve and Tony side hugging, smiling, and Tony is giving Steve bunny ears. (X

3. Once Tony told Steve that he was his “favorite field commander.” (X)

4. Steve is talking to Natasha about Tony and Natasha tells him, “You two should just get married.” (X)

5. When Ronan came to the Academy for the first GoTG event, Steve said, “I got your back, Tony.”

6. Once Tony told Steve, “What if I told you the internet thought we were the perfect couple?”

7. Tony offers to upgrades Steve’s shield to make it lighter, stronger, and capable of firing energy blasts and Steve replies with, “Thanks, but I think you’re fancy enough for the both of us.” While smiling happily and Tony is shocked.

8. During the Halloween event, Tony had to do a last minute cardboard Iron Man costume because Baron Zemo bought the last Captain America costume. He was going to be Cap! And he’s mentioned dressing up as Cap as a kid more than once. (X)

9. Tony said once, “I mock because I love. Ask Cap, I’ve been mocking him for months.” So….he’s loved him for months.

10. Tony asked Steve for girl advice, and said he was absurdly handsome. So they go working out together at the gym…clearly showing off for each other, and not a girl. Tony thinks he did a good workout, which Steve took as a joke. So he went to the gym with Tony again…I wonder why… (X)

11. They bicker like a married couple.

12. Tony always goes to Cap at the beginning of an event to plan out how to protect the Academy (because they’re leaders and work best together).

13. When recruiting Mockingbird Tony tells her she can trust Steve. Once she tells Steve that, he looks shocked and SO happy about it. (X)

14. Tony makes a blacksmith Iron Man outfit that is pretty revealing, which leaves Steve speechless. Once Tony says he’s a blacksmith, Steve tells him that was his second guess. Steve, what was your first guess you naughty guy? (X)

15. When you get Pepper she asks Steve, “will you keep an eye on Tony?” To which Steve smiles and replies, “I always do.” (X)

16. Tony Stark is such a Cap fanboy. He’s dressed up as Cap, he had Cap action figures, and he even had Jarvis make him Capcakes for breakfast as a kid. (X) (X)

17. When Ultron attacked, who has the mind of Tony, the first thing he did was make a Captain America robot and he calls the Capbot his greatest creation. (X)

18. When Tony finds out about RoboCap he’s shocked and disappointed he didn’t think to make a RoboCap first. (X)

19. When Ultron attacks Tony thinks Steve is going to blame him, but Steve doesn’t. He just encourages Tony and says they’ll defeat him together. (X)

20. During the Ultron event Tony mocks Steve by trying to do an impression of him and he says, “I told you not to build those robots, Tony. We should have been teaching bald eagles how to do the Charleston while balancing apple pies on our bulging biceps.” So Tony was checking Steve and his biceps out. Steve takes it as a joke and says just reassures Tony that they can fix the problem. (X)

21. Tony makes Cap an energy shield but when Steve uses it, it turns into a giant energy ball where Steve runs around in it. Steve knows Tony so well that he tells Tony to get his joke over with. Tony calls him Hamster America, and Steve would be more mad but he said it was a good workout. (X) (X) (X)

22. When Tony encounters RoboCap he says “sometimes I want to punch you in your perfect robot teeth.” He says he’s thought about saying that to Steve sometimes, but RoboCap says it’s too far. Tony then agrees and talks about how Cap is his friend and how polite he is. (X)

23. Tony’s wanted to make upgrades to Steve’s shield for better protection, but eventually he makes him an energy shield instead when Steve is in his Commander America uniform. (X)

24. During the Ultron event while Tony is working on Steve’s energy shield Steve tells Tony that he’s been having a recurring dream about a red dinosaur. Tony smiles and says he wishes Steve was that weird more often. (X)

25. Tony asks Steve, “How do you like my mancave?” (X)

26. Steve tells Tony that he’s more than just his tech. (X)

27. Tony loves Steve’s biceps. He’s commented on them more than once. Telling Steve about his “bulging biceps” and when Gladiator Cap showed up, Tony said he’s seen Steve checking out his own biceps. Steve says he hasn’t and asked Tony if HE’S been checking out his biceps…Tony then says he’s a scientist (which means yes, he’s been checking Steve out). (X)

28. Tony is talking to Peter Quill and Peter doesn’t understand some of the scientific terms Tony’s using. Steve steps in and DEFINES the word, Tony is shocked, and Steve is so proud and says “futurism!” (X)

29. Tony confides in Steve at the beginning of an event and Steve wants to hear it. Tony refuses to tell him cause he doesn’t want Steve to change his plans and says he can’t make all of Steve’s life choices for him. (Tony definitely wants to be a part of Steve’s life decisions). (X

30. During the GoTG2 event Steve’s costume is “Ravager Captain America” and he has a great outfit made of leather with leather straps and he has a mohawk. This leaves Tony speechless, and Tony has never been speechless before. (I’m pretty sure Tony loved the leather, and rock ‘n roll look). (X)

You grumbled all the way to the art gallery, adamant in your opposition to being dragged there by your roommate.

“Shut up, we’re already here. Are you going to brood the whole time?” Liz glared at you before pushing the glass doors open.

You’d pouted, clearly having lost the battle a long time ago. You settled on folding your arms defensively and letting out one last exasperated sigh. “Fine, but I still don’t know why you brought me here to begin with.”

Liz’s eyebrows shot up at the absurdity of the question, “You haven’t left the house for anything besides work and the occasional run. You’re starting to get boring, where’s fun Y/N?”

Her words only made you pout further because she was completely right-like most of the time despite your inability to admit it to her.

In other news Hiryuu’s too cute and I’m weak

How to stop snoozing - 

We all do it, it’s nothing new, yet it’s something that wrecks our “this year I’m gonna wake up early” goals. Snoozing is the single most comforting and annoying thing in the day.

So how do we stop snoozing and actually wake up on time?

1. Don’t put your phone (or alarm clock if you use that) too close to your bed when you sleep - basically, it should be far enough so that you actually get up to even snooze it.

2. Don’t use a single alarm tune for more than a couple of weeks. In my experience, once you get used to that tune, it’s pretty easy to go back to sleep after snoozing it, or even letting it play.

3. Keep your phone/alarm clock in different places everyday (or at least every other day). Set them apart by only a few inches if not more, but the change in position helps you up in the morning when you have to look for your phone rather than just go to the one specified place and shut it off.

4. Try an alarm that wakes you up with something cute/useful - like daily news, cute critters, whatever makes you happy. Don’t put a screaming animal as an alarm - mornings should be pleasant, and an annoying sound to wake up to will make you less inclined to wake up at all! Also, chances are you’ll shut a bad alarm off rather than snoozing it - not the best idea.

5. Go to bed earlier if you can. Duh.

6. Plan your sleep so you wake up at the end of your REM cycles - ideal sleep lengths would be 3 hours, 4.5 hours, 6 hours, 7.5 hours, 9 hours and so on. You’ll feel fresher and be more likely to not snooze.

7. Plan something good for your morning - this one is pretty obvious. My morning schedule goes like something like this these days:

  • 5:00 - wake up
  • get dressed
  • make coffee/hot chocolate
  • blog a bit
  • 6:00 - study Danish (my favorite thing to study right now!)

I study Danish until I’ve completed whatever I wanted to do, and then I move on to the next subject. If I put say, chemistry (which I hate) in my early morning sessions, I’d snooze until 7.

So I hope that helped! If you’re trying to wake up early, remember you can do it! Good luck, my owls xx

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CUTE CAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

🌟 🌠Self Care Tip: Keep a positivity journal. 🌠🌟

Unlike a regular diary where you log the details of your day to day life, both the good and the bad, a positivity journal is meant to be filled with nothing but the good in order to create a space where you can focus only on the positive things in life that you can then look through when you’re feeling negative in order to cheer yourself up.

Some ideas for things you can keep in a positivity journal are:

💛Compliments people have given you

💛A list of good gifts you have received

💛Descriptions of cute animals you’ve seen while out and about

💛Quotes that inspire you or make you feel happy

💛Newspaper clippings of good news stories

💛Puns or other jokes that have made you laugh

💛A list of music that makes you happy

💛Pictures or art that you like

💛Your best memories from childhood

💛Stickers or stamps

💛A list of self-care activities/tips that have worked for you

💛Coloring pages you’ve completed

💛A list of things you like about yourself

And pretty much just ANYTHING that makes you happy, makes you feel better about yourself, or reminds you that there is good in the world and in your life!

Inspired by the news of Eddie at a dance studio yesterday, I had to make some dancing-Eddie-gifs. He always says he can’t dance, & I have to admit he looked pretty awkward in this video, but it was incredibly cute, nonetheless! (Plus… did any other man ever look this good in a tailcoat?) 

well, that was short, but it packed a hell of a punch

  • xenoblade 2 still has the “we just found random aspiring theater kids in london and dragged them into a studio” voice acting, thank the fucking lord
  • i feel like the switch getting the next core pokemon game kinda confirms that the 3DS’s days are numbered and nintendo won’t be doing a dedicated handheld to succeed it
  • metroid prime 4 is amazing news, both because it’s metroid prime 4 and it means metroid fans won’t start whining whenever literally any other nintendo franchise gets crossover content
  • my boy kirby is back, and i’m getting major kirby super star vibes
  • yoshi’s woolly littlebigplanet looks cute, i guess
  • they’ve completely killed any interest i had in fire emblem warriors
  • fucking hell, mario + rabbids actually looks pretty damn fun - i can’t WAIT to see all the people who freaked out about it furiously backpedaling
  • rocket league is a really good fit for switch, that was nice
  • super mario odyssey looks fucking WILD, and it launches a day after my birthday

but yeah, this presentation sold me on the switch, so i guess it did its job

it’s your girl, back at it again with the baseball tee and messy hair

Prince!Mingyu
  • Mingyu grew up as the youngest son of a family of three. So kid had fun growing up. 
  • He had so much freedom being the youngest because he was never supposed to take the throne or the stress that came with it. 
  • of course he put this freedom to good use.
  • Since he could talk he would never be in the castle, always roaming around the city with a bodyguard. 
  • As he got older, he’d go on further and further expeditions, going to towns and cities in the kingdom and exploring but also learning from the people there. 
  • He was like 10 but no one can deny the prince.
  • The chefs were 90% sure that letting the young prince this close to an open flame was a TERRIBLE idea but he just looked so excited…. and his bodyguards are scary……
  • When he was 12, he was sent away to a boarding school.
  • and it was one of those, celebrities and royalty from small countries type of gig like it was HELLA prestigious 
  • and he easily climbed to the top of his class
  • Mingyu was blessed with a natural ability to be good at everything. He wasn’t the best, but he could do it all. 
  • and that’s where you came in. 
  • you really didn’t see what all the hype was around mingyu but you didn’t really care. 
  • his following of girls was a little annoying but no one bothered you so you didn’t care. 
  • the problem came when he started being good at things that did pertain to you.

follow for follow

Jace knows his infatuation with his neighbor is kind of creepy.

He has been told several times, by Alec and Izzy and Magnus separately, that he needs to either talk to the guy or stop posting about him on Twitter. But that’s much easier said than done.

You develop a certain kind of intimacy with the person who lives in the apartment beside yours. With thin walls that accompany cheap housing, Jace could hear everything that went on in Simon Lewis’ apartment and vice versa. When Simon turned the volume up on his TV too high, Jace could hear direct lines from Ghostbusters. When he played his guitar, Jace could hear it. When he had friends over and he was laughing, Jace could hear it. He had a great laugh.

His crush had first developed nearly five months ago, and since then he’d been hopeless. He’d had a cold and was coughing non-stop, unaware at the time that his neighbor could definitely hear it.

There had been a knock on his door and he’d gotten up to answer with his blanket wrapped firmly around himself, hair unbrushed, looking completely disgusting because he’d assumed it was Alec and he didn’t care how he looked around his brother.

But Simon had been standing there instead, a bowl in his hands and a cheerful smile on his face.

“Hey!” He’d chirped when Jace answered. “I know we’ve only talked like, twice, but you sound really sick and I would’ve felt like a horrible neighbor if I just listened to you suffer and did nothing about it. So I, uh, made you some soup. I hope that’s okay.”

Jace had been overwhelmed and horrified with the fact that his cute neighbor had made him soup and that his cute neighbor was seeing him in a terribly unattractive state, so it took his brain a few moments to sort through it all and formulate an answer.

“Thank you,” he’d said sincerely, taking the warm bowl in his hands, “seriously this is so nice. Thank you.”

Simon had beamed, which Jace was fairly certain had healed him a little bit. “I hope you feel better soon. And you know if you need anything, just knock on my door. Or the wall, I guess.”

And from that moment on, Jace was smitten.

So occasionally, when Simon did something cute, Jace tweeted about it. So what?

It was all fine until he got a notification on his phone which read: @SIGHMONLEWIS STARTED FOLLOWING YOU.

At first, Jace’s idiotic brain had registered this as good news. And then every tweet that he had ever sent out about Simon’s face and his guitar skills and his cute Star Wars pajamas that he wore out into the lobby to get his mail came back in vivid detail and he panicked.

He frantically scrolled down his profile, hastily deleting any tweet that mentioned Simon. He was just starting to calm down, thinking that Simon probably hadn’t even bothered to look down his account, when a DM came through.

Simon had shared a tweet of Jace’s that said “Pretty boy next door is singing again……#blessed” and accompanied it with a message that said “appreciate the feedback, dude” with a laughing emoji.

Jace blacked out for a few moments from extreme terror.

He didn’t even remember dialing Alec’s number, but soon enough his brother’s soothing voice was in his ear, talking him down.

“It’s not as bad as you think.” Alec said calmly. “If anything, he might like it. They’re compliments!”

“Some people think stalking is a compliment.” Jace said with a slightly hysterical scoff. “He’s probably so creeped out, oh my god. He probably sent that message so that I would know he’s creeped out. He’s probably taking screenshots and sending them to his friends and asking them to look for apartment listings.”

“You’re blowing this out of proportion!” Alec insisted.

“How did he even find my Twitter?” Jace wondered aloud, realizing for the first time that he had never shared it.

“Well, Isabelle followed him. And she’s been to your place dozens of times, so he probably recognized her. And you’re always on her feed, because you’re both obsessed with taking selfies together, so he probably found you that way.” Alec sounded proud of himself for his deduction. Jace saw red.

“She followed him?” Jace hissed. “That makes it worse! He’s going to think I talk about him to my family and friends!”

“You do.” Alec pointed out.

“Okay, okay. I’m going to go talk to him.” Jace decided with a deep breath. That was the best course of action. If he avoided Simon, it would be a million times worse the next time he ran into him in the hall. He needed to fix this, or at least give Simon the option to choose never to speak to him again.

“That seems like a bad idea.” Alec advised. “Maybe take a few minutes to calm down first. Think about what you’re going to say.”

“No, no, I have to do it now or I’ll lose my nerve.” Jace said. “Love you, I’ll call you if I need to move in with you and Magnus, bye.”

And he hung up. He spent a few seconds messing with his hair and trying to calm his erratic heartbeat before swallowing his pride and knocking on Simon’s door.

Simon answered after a painstaking couple of seconds where Jace began to convince himself that he’d fled the country. He was in sweatpants and a yellow tee that read “Hufflepuff’ across the chest. His hair was slightly messy and something about him looked off, but he was still beautiful. He smiled at Jace, eyes crinkling at the corners.

“Hey, it’s my number one fan!” He teased, effectively making Jace’s face heat up by twenty degrees. “You want me to perform a song?”

“Uh, I wanted to explain.” Jace said, trying to recall his improv skills from high school theatre. “I just, I know it might seem like I’m uh, obsessed with you or something, but I just tweet about stuff that happens in my life a lot so it’s not really you specifically, just…”

Simon seemed amused, his lips pulled into a permanent smirk. “It’s okay, man.”

“It’s weird.” Jace sighed in defeat, shoulders slumping. “I know it is. If you want me to delete my account and never speak to you again, I totally will.”

“What?” Simon shook his head. “No! I mean, really it’s okay. It was kinda…cute, actually.”

“Really?”

“Really.” Simon nodded, then cast his eyes downward. “And I may or may not have a Tumblr where I’ve occasionally posted about my hot neighbor. So.”

All of the panic in Jace’s body thawed and melted into absolute relief, shortly followed by ecstatic joy. He’d never even entertained the thought that his pretty neighbor might be into him, too. It had honestly never crossed his mind.

Simon looked like he was about to say something else, but he very suddenly pulled an arm up and muffled a quiet sneeze in the crook of his arm.

“Sorry,” he said with a sniffle, “I think I’m catching a cold.”

Jace smiled, already moving back toward his door. “That’s too bad. Maybe some soup would help?”

Simon beamed and nodded, already falling into step behind Jace. “That’d be great. And then you could tweet about it.”

“And you could post on Tumblr about it.” Jace countered.

Simon laughed, and it was a beautiful sound to hear on the opposite side of the wall for the first time. “We’re so creepy.”

“It’s not creepy anymore,” Jace pointed out, “now it’s cute.”

“You’re right.” Simon agreed, settling on Jace’s couch. “We’re so cute.”

werkthatasdfl  asked:

Oooooooooooooooooh can you write all of the companions (including codsworth and strong and dogmeat) defending sole? Like if someone insulted them?

For sure, bud!

Cait: “Oi, buggar off ya’ arse! Yer’ lucky Sole is ‘round to keep me from puttin’ ya’ in yer’ place.” 

Codsworth: “My, how rude! I see that common courtesy has been lost to the ages. Are you alright there, sir/mum?” 

Curie: “Mon dieu! Madame/Monsieur you are quite rude to say such a thing to him/her.” 

Danse: “Watch your tongue, civilian. You’re slinging insults at a member of the Brotherhood.” 

Deacon: “Ouch. If crickets weren’t extinct, they’d be chirping right now. You might want to work on your material.”

Dogmeat: He slinks back and growls at the stranger, his ears laying flat. 

Hancock: “We got a real funny-man over here, don’t we? Well, you might want to back off before I do something real funny to you.”

Preference: Your First Kiss with Them.

a/n: this was requested. I hope you all enjoy c: and I hope you don’t mind that I did high school Darry instead of his age from the books.


Darry:
Darry kissed you for the first time while he was wrapped up in excitement from winning a big game. Neither of you expected it but it just happened.

Darry and you had been crushing on each other for a while now and you had gone on two dates before he convinced you to come to see him play football.

You were with a few of your friends and you sat in the front row behind the cheerleaders. You didn’t really like football but the game wasn’t so bad since Darry was playing because you just sat there daydreaming about the two of you. You did start to pay closer attention towards the end. Your school’s team hadn’t been doing well the whole game but suddenly they were pulling through. You- along with everyone else in the stands on your side- stood up for the last few seconds of the game. You hadn’t realized you were holding you breath as you watched Darry catch the ball. He ran and ran and suddenly you and everyone in your section was screaming and jumping up and down.  Darry- your Darry- had just won the game for your school. You watched the other players run towards each other but you noticed Darry running your way so you stepped forward from your seat to stand by the railing that separated you from the field. Darry ran up to you grinning.

“Go steady with me?” He asked, panting slightly from running and from the excitement.

“Of course.” You laughed and nodded quickly.

Darry’s smile widened and before you knew it he was over the railing and picking you up. He pressed your lips pressed together as he spun you around.

Sodapop:
Sodapop and you had been best friends since you were little. Your first kiss technically was on the playground when he was eight and you were seven. You both swore to tell no one. Your first official kiss as a couple was one late night while you slept over the Curtis’s house. You both had been putting off your feelings for so long out of fear of ruining the friendship but that night you gave in and kissed.

You had been having feelings for him for a while and so had he but while you both knew it neither wanted to be the one to make the first move.

You slept over the Curtis house a lot. Sometimes you’d sleep on the couch on your own but most nights Sodapop would join you in the living room. You two would gather as many blankets as you could and make a bed on the floor.

That night you were both laying on your sides facing each other while Sodapop talked about his brothers. They had been fighting that night which is why you chose to stay the night. You knew Sodapop well enough to know that if he didn’t talk out his feelings right away he would break.

“Thank you for listening, Y/N..” He murmured after he had calmed down a bit.

“Of course,” You smiled slightly. You had been looking into his eyes but you couldn’t help as your own eyes flickered down to look at his lips. It was a quick look but he caught you. You saw the corners of his lips turn up a bit in a small grin and then you found yourself leaning toward him as he did the same and you two kissed hard.

Ponyboy:
Ponyboy had taken you on a couple of dates before your first kiss. He didn’t want to make you rush into anything you didn’t want so he took his time. It happened at school while you two sat under a big tree for shade while you ate your lunch and read silently. Something came over you both at the same time and you looked up from your books and just kissed.

Ponyboy and you had always had a different connection from the start. You had dated a couple of boys before and you really truly liked them, but a few months with one of them was nothing compared to the couple of short weeks you had spent so far with Ponyboy.

You two seemed to understand each other without words. It was lunch at school and you and him liked to sit under a tree for shade. You would talk for a bit while you walked to your spot but when there you would mostly read and eat your lunches silently and you loved the comfort in it.

That day you were both sat with a book in one hand and your free hands linked between you two. Suddenly you both looked up and over at each other. You smiled a bit and he did too and suddenly you were leaning close to each other, kissing softly.

Two-Bit:
You were two years younger than Two-Bit but he recognized you from a study hall class at school. You always thought he was funny and he always thought you were pretty cute but neither one of you did anything about it. One night he saw you hanging out with someone who he knew was bad news and so he came to check on you. He almost got into a fight that guy but he managed to get you away from him. When he found out that the only reason you did it was because you wanted a first kiss he offered to do it.

“So what are doing hanging around with a guy like that, little girl?” Two-Bit asked as he walked you back to your house. “Look I’m a greaser and even I know a guy like that ain’t no good.”

“Don’t say that.” You frowned and shivered slightly. “Don’t say I’m a little girl.”

Two-Bit looked over at you and took off his jacket so that you could put it on. You murmured a quiet thanks and he just shook his head. “Don’t thank me. Just tell me how you got mixed up with him.”

You shrugged a bit. “I’ve seen him around town loads of times. I knew he you know.. isn’t picky about who he’s with and I..” you mumbled the last few words quickly and quietly.

“What was that?” Two-Bit asked and you stopped walking. You were standing out front of your house by the fence.

“Don’t worry about it alright? Thanks for your concern and walking me home but it’s not a big deal I promise.”

“Y/N..” Two-Bit said looking you in the eyes.

You sighed softly and decided just to tell him. “I wanted someone to kiss me, alright? I’ve never been kissed before and I’m sick of people treating me like a kid. I’m the only one I know who hasn’t been kissed and I needed someone who I knew would do it and-”

Two-Bit cut you off as he leaned in to press your lips together. You kissed for a few seconds before he pulled away slightly with a smile. You could feel the warmth in your cheeks and you couldn’t help as the biggest smile came over your face.

“See?” Two-Bit said. “There’s nothing to it.”

“I.. I um…” You cringed a bit as you stuttered and tried to think of what to say.

“Why don’t you hang onto my jacket. I’ll see you Monday, Y/N.”

Dally:
Dally and you were on your first date when you saw your ex boyfriend pass by. Dally saw how upset it made you that he was with another girl so he kissed you to make you feel better.  

Dally and you were at the diner sharing a milkshake and some fries with each other. You were sat on the same side of the booth and he had an arm draped around your shoulder. He was smirking a bit as you talked to him but suddenly something caught the corner of your eye and you turned your head. You saw your ex sitting down at a table with one of the girls in your class you just couldn’t stand. You looked down hoping he didn’t see you.

You felt guilty that on your first date with Dally you were allowing yourself to feel sad about the guy you used to date.

Dally noticed your silence and spoke up. “You alright, doll?”

You nod a bit and we’re gonna answer him until you both looked up at the same time, as your ex looked over and smirked at you. He pulled the girl he was with close and gave her a deep kiss. You cringed a bit.

“Hey is that the ass that was yelling at you that day? The one I almost kicked the crap out of?”

“Yea don’t worry about it.” You murmured and gave him a small smile.

He just shook his his head and pulled you in for a long kiss. When you two pulled away you both looked pleased.

“Now let’s go, doll. This place blows.” he said casually and you to walked out with his arm around your waist tightly.

Steve:
For your first kiss Steve wanted to kiss you right away but didn’t want to make you feel pressured so he walked you to your door said goodnight and left. He regretted it once he got home and so he drove all the way back to your house, climbed up to your window and kissed you.

You were already in your pajamas and you were just laying on your bed reading a book when layout heard a knock on your window. You jumped in surprise but relaxed a bit when you saw that it was Steve. You were a bit embarrassed that you were in your pajamas with your hair up but you rushed to the window anyways.

“What are you doing?” You whisper to him once you open the window. “If my dad or my brother sees you you’re a dead man.”

“Can I kiss you?” he asked grinned. He was standing on the floor part of your roof that came out from your window.

“Did you come all the way back here to ask me that?” You laughed a bit. “You could’ve earlier you know?”

“I know.. I know.. I was being stupid. Can I kiss you, Y/N?”

You nodded happily and leaned forward. Steve brushed a strand of hair from your face before kissing you softly.

Johnny:
Johnny and your first kiss happened at school. It surprised you both how casual it happened as if you two had kissed a thousand times before but for both of you that comfortability of it made it so great. You had been sitting with Johnny and his friends and you knew you had to get home to do some chores you skipped yesterday. When you said goodbye to him he just turned and kissed you quickly.

“I suppose I better get going or my mom’ll be mad.” You say as you put your backpack on and stand up from where you had been leaning against the car of one of Johnny’s friends. “I’ll see you tomorrow.” you say and suddenly you and Johnny’s lips are pressed together.

It was a quick kiss but when both of you pull away your both a bit taken a back.

“See you tomorrow.” Johnny nods with a grin and you run off to your bike not being able to wipe the smile off your face for the rest of the night.
