Can we talk about how AIDA won’t let Fitz see any footage of Jemma because, let’s be real, THE POWER OF THEIR LOVE WILL DEFEAT ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING ESPECIALLY SOME FUCKED UP MAGICAL COMPUTER CODE SHIT.
Summary: “No matter the endeavour you were on, no matter the storms you
encountered on rocky seas, or the possible threat of encountering blood-thirsty
pirates, no one intrigued you or intimidated you more than the thought of him,
of Park Jimin, the most notorious of pirates, the most brutal of men,
the devil incarnate.”
I’ve seen a lot of fanart and fics where aged up Lance has scars on his skin,
and man do I dig that aesthetic, but what if it’s the opposite? What if healing
pods not only repair injuries to the point where there’s no scarring, but they
also repair old damage? Like, say, regenerating tissues and cells to the point
where the whole body is like brand new.
scar that Lance’s sister gave him when he was four? Gone. The old burn he had
when he was twelve and touched the stove? Like it was never there in the first
place. And siblings fight, and Lance has a lot of siblings, so he’s bound to
have many “battle” scars, but they’re wiped away, one by one
like they were
never there, like his past with his family never happened.
maybe at some point, when he only has so many scars left, Lance starts fearing
taking an injury, not because of pain and blood, but because that means another
trip to a healing pod. Another mark of his past, proof that he really is a boy
from Cuba, washed away like ocean foam. Maybe at some point, even if the injury
is severe enough to warrant a visit to the pods, but not quite severe
enough that it’d keep Lance from piloting Blue, he denies Coran when he
suggests he visit the infirmary. Maybe he wants to heal naturally, welcoming
new scars to join the old ones.
he learns to accept it, maybe he doesn’t. Maybe the birthmark on his hip is one
day wiped away, replaced by unblemished tanned skin, and maybe Lance stays up
till two crying because there’s so little left of who he used to be. What’s
left of him that hasn’t been stomped on by parades of war and sullied with
blood, tears and duty?
maybe, when years have passed and the universe is finally well off that they
can return home for a few vargas, maybe… Maybe Lance still looks the same.
Maybe all his visits to the healing pods; being exposed to their magic and
quintessence has regenerated him to the point where he still looks exactly the
same as he did when they snuck out of the Garrison that one oh so fateful
night. Maybe it’s been two years, maybe it’s been ten, but the Paladins all
look the same, to the dot, like they’re untouched by time. But Lance’s family doesn’t. His little sister, who used to only
reach Lance’s hip, all pigtails and freckles, maybe she’s now tall enough to reach his chest and
better at math than Lance will ever be. Maybe she has new scars Lance has never
seen or kissed away.
Maybe his mom has worry lines and grey hairs Lance knows she didn’t have when he last saw her, and maybe she talks less than he remembers. Maybe she has to pinch herself when she first sees her son after however many years, because he hasn’t changed a bit. Maybe she breaks into tears at the sight of him, and her hug is just as warm and three times as tight as Lance remembers.
Maybe his siblings give him a new scar to cherish before there’s another planet, another crisis that needs Voltron.
Taeil: Comes prepared with fins and full faced goggles. Would’ve brought his wetsuit but couldn’t find it because he packed last minute. Sits in the water away from everyone else and looks at the little fish that circle around his feet. Enjoys himself the most and doesn’t want to leave when everyone starts to pack up.
Johnny: Refuses any sunscreen from Taeyong. Falls asleep 15 minutes after they arrive and is asleep directly in the sun for the full two hours they’re there. Is burnt to a crisp and gets laughed a by Haechan who calls him a lobster.
Taeyong: Has packed 10 tubes of sunscreen and 15 sandwiches but won’t let anyone get in the water until half an hour after they’ve eaten. Wants to get in the water but is too worried the sea water would ruin his hair and wash away his sunscreen. Taking selfies and videos of everyone having fun.
Yuta: Immediately rips off his shirt as soon as he arrives. The first one in the water trying to convince everyone it wasn’t that cold which was a lie. Tells Chenle he can finally be with his people and offers to help him find some dolphins.
Doyoung: Builds a sandcastle with Renjun because he’s scared of the fish in the ocean but doesn’t want to admit it. Occasionally stands on the shore dipping his feet in the water as he watches over the younger members making sure they don’t drown.
Ten: Was in charge of bringing the beach toys for everyone to play with but forgot them at the dorm. Screams when a piece of seaweed touches his foot and tells everyone it was a big fish but no one believes him.
Jaehyun: Spends the entire time in the water only coming out for the food Taeyong brought them. All the girls are swooning over him and he doesn’t realize it.
Winwin: Wears a shirt and a rashguard, refusing to take either off even though he was dying of heat. Gets pulled into the water by Yuta and has a splashing fight with Yuta and Jaehyun until he got water in his eye and complained he couldn’t see for 10 whole minutes.
Mark: Brought a book that he swore to himself he was going to read until he dropped it in the sand and got sand in all the pages. Keeps getting in and out of the water, getting bored and hoping somehow going back and forth will change something. Trips while trying to get out on multiple occasions.
Renjun: Refuses to get into the water, afraid sharks are going to hurt him. Stays on the shore building a sand castle with Doyoung. Builds the coolest sandcastle on the beach that included a three story palace, palace walls, and a moat full of water that he made Doyoung collect from the ocean.
Jeno: The only one being somewhat normal. Is sent to go back to the car to get everything people forgot. Tries to convince Renjun to get into the water but Renjun is having none of it.
Haechan: Doesn’t really want to be there claiming he easily burns. Sits under an umbrella most of the time. After eating his sandwich he ran into the water without Taeyong noticing, got a cramp, and had Yuta come save him. Was scolded by Taeyong and wasn’t allowed in the water anymore.
Jaemin: Brought cookies with him to eat when he got hungry but the seagulls found his stash and ate all of them. Taking aesthetic photos of himself by the ocean and almost drops his phone into the water on multiple occasions.
Chenle: Brought a frisbee to play with Jisung and Jaemin. Accidently got hit in the face with the frisbee by Jaemin and decided he wanted to go in the water instead. Tried to see if he could breathe underwater which he quickly found out wasn’t possible.
Jisung: Comes to the beach in jeans and a longsleeve shirt and no one knows why. Goes in the water fully clothed and when the members ask him why he says he’s not sure himself. Is convinced he’ll get a cramp if he goes back in the water after he eats and waits an hour instead of 30 minutes even though Taeyong said it was okay.
A man once made his own chicken sandwich completely from scratch - He grew his own crops, slaughtered a chicken and boiled ocean saltwater for sea salt. In the end it cost him over $1000 and half a year. He didn’t like the taste. source
Summary: The only reason Adrien came up with such an elaborate trap for a mermaid was to sell her on the market, rake in some gold, and get a new ship to help him carry out some business. Simple as that.
The plan wasn’t for this mermaid to attack his crew, hold him at sword point, and steal his maps for some ridiculous mission involving magical stones, egomaniacal pirates, and a plot to stop the end of the world.
This beautifully dangerous creature was certainly going to be the end of him.
Chapter 1: Capturing a Mermaid
“Adrien, let me be the first to say that I still think this is a ridiculously stupid idea.”
Adrien pulled the flask out of his coat and pulled the cork out with his teeth. “Aw, come on, Nino. Where’s your sense of adventure?”
“My sense of adventure is perfectly intact, thank you very much,” Nino frowned. “So is my sense of self preservation. This is a suicide mission, you idiot!”
“It’s only a suicide mission if I screw it up. And for your information, I’ve thought this out meticulously. It’ll work. Besides, I know you’re secretly hoping that we pull this off. You know how much we need the money.”
Nino sighed as Adrien shed his captain’s hat and his coat and draped them in Nino’s arms. “There are other ways to fund a journey to the Eastern Seas, you know. It doesn’t have to include chasing after a fairytale.”
“It’s not a fairytale,” Adrien insisted, unbuttoning his shirt and throwing it over Nino’s head. “I’ve done my research. Went to a library and everything.”
“Yeah! You did research! Based on the drunken ramblings of past sailors! That hardly counts. You’re putting your life on the line for this.“
“You worry too much, buddy. I’ve got this under control.” Adrien turned around to the rest of his crew and held up the knife he kept strapped to his thigh. “Alright gentlemen, listen up! There are rumors of mermaids in this part of the sea, so we’ve got one chance to do this right.” He pointed the knife at Kim. “Are the nets ready?”
”Isn’t this lovely?” He asked silently and looked up at the night
clouds, stars poking out if you looked closely. You looked up from his chest to
stare at him, his fingers lightly dancing over the skin of your spine and
slowly formed goosebumps on your arms. “What? The view or you?” You teasingly
questioned and shut your eyes just for a brief moment, feeling his chest
vibrate in chuckles. You still had your eyes closed but you could tell his
smile was growing, shaking his head with a deep blush coming to his cheeks. The
wind was cod against his bare shoulders and he could hear the ocean loud from below
the balcony but otherwise than that everything was quiet. Your nude bodies were
heating each other up below the towel that was wet from the swim, feeling how
everything felt so peacefully, the sounds of palm trees brushing their leaves
by the wind. “Both,” He agreed, making you look up at him from his chest. “Both
the view and you are fantastically lovely.” Shaking your head by his cheesiness
you focused back on the navy blue ocean, feeling how your stomach was erupting
with a million butterflies.
“You know I can already feel tomorrow morning I won’t be able to walk
properly.” Your words came out innocent but the way Calum was looking down at
you told various other emotions. He was having a wide smirk growing on his face
along with his eyebrows wiggling, he didn’t have to say anything to let you
know the many different things that were going through his mind at once. “Was
it really that bad? You sounded so different during the process.” He laughed
more quietly to himself than you, watching you turn around so your stomach was
resting on the mattress but your cheek was still pressed against his arm. He
was having that smile on his face that told he was so comfortable and by one
glance down at the sheets that was barely covering his lower parts you couldn’t
stop yourself from hiding your giggling face. “Stop…” He requested sternly but
still with softness in his tone and you furrowed your eyebrows confused but
continued to make the same face. “Stop being so insanely cute.” He whispered
and lowered his lips to your bare shoulder, giving a gentle kiss. “It drives me
“I think that must have been our record.” He breathlessly said once he
had finally calmed down from his heart beating twice its rhythm, his back pressed
against the mattress with your head on top of his shoulders. The sheets were
messily scattered by the half part of the bed but even if you had disagreed and
said it would be too hot Michael had still decided to throw it over your nude
bodies just for the coziness. “I can’t believe you’re counting.” You laughed
and felt how your eyes followed the lines on the ceiling, your heart beating so
harshly you could almost feel it in your chest. “I can’t believe you haven’t
cuddled me yet.” “That’s because we’re both sweaty and hot.” A dry laugh came
from his lips by your words and he leaned down effortlessly to grab you by the hips and pull you on top of
his glistering chest. “That’s nonsense.” He laughed in disagreement and wrapped
his arms around your waist to pull you as close as possible and allowed you
both to feel how hard your hearts were pounding. “Naked cuddles are my
favourite kind of cuddles. There’s no way we’re letting that thing out.”
“We’re never getting out of this bed I’m too comfortable.” He hummed
into your ear ever so carefully, yet his words left goosebumps erupt on both
your arms that were closely wrapped up in his. His bare chest was breathing
heavily against your back, your legs intertwined and a satisfied smile came to
his face once he lightly ghosted his hand over your butt. “And this isn’t
always I get the chance to touch this without any fabric.” You rolled your eyes
by his words and turned around to look at him, his messy sex hair sticking to
every direction possible but that didn’t make him less cute than he already
was. “We should go shower.” You mentioned, the smell of sweat wouldn’t leave the
bedroom and if it was coming from someone it was definitely coming from Ashton.
He shook his head in disagreement and placed his head back on top of your bare
chest, his hand coming down to rub your skin once again just because he actually
could do it. “Can’t, your butt and I have a special meeting in our bed.” He giggled
and opened his tired eyes to look at you, giving your butt a small smack.
How about a DA2 companions (romanced too, please) reacting to Hawke who's afraid of large bodies and water and absolutely cannot (and will not) swim? If you do this one, thanks in advance
Aveline: She noticed it when they were on the ship from Gwaren, of course. When Hawke started to get more and more panicked the closer they came to the ship, Aveline approached them and asked what the matter was. Upon finding out the truth, Aveline made sure to push through the crowds of fellow refugees to get Hawke a position in the ship’s brig so that they can see the sky, thinking it would help. She always remembers Hawke’s fear and always takes a greater care with them if she’s in a party going to the Wounded Coast.
Isabela: She tried to hide her hurt at Hawke’s immediate refusal to join her crew but when she learns the truth a few drinks later, she understands. “Not all of us have sea legs, you know,” she tells them with a grin. “Some of us are just gifted in other ways…like having a sixth sense for finding dirty pantaloons..” Romanced: She was a bit stumped for a while as she tried to think about how she could keep Hawke around and still be a captain of a ship. “I do find it quite alluring to think of having you waiting for me in a little island cottage…with five dogs. No! Six. And a horse, maybe.”
Varric: Varric found out quite soon after Hawke’s arrival to Kirkwall, and he can sympathise. “I’m not much of a dwarfy dwarf, you know, but I still get the sea sickness. Bah, we’re not made for the open sea. Too open.” He leans back in his chair and gets comfortable. “I’m fine right where I am, besides I heard that dwarves don’t deal with the sea too well. You sure you don’t have a bit of dwarf in you?”
Carver: He found out as a child, when Hawke was getting pushed around by some of the local village kids and ended up getting thrown into the nearby lake. Carver had saved them, and since then has felt a strong sense of protectiveness over their elder sibling when it comes to their fear of water. He never brings it up to hurt them, even in their worst arguments, and if anyone dares make fun of Hawke for it, Carver will pummel them into the ground.
Bethany: Beth figured it out when she noticed how anxious Hawke got during bathtime in their childhood. Similar to Carver, she’s very protective over their sibling’s fear and will be very harsh to people who think to use it against them. She makes a habit of warming up Hawke’s bath for them (if they’re not a mage) so that it will be hot in an effort to try and make it less stressful for them.
Fenris: Fenris was admittedly curious when he noticed how much Hawke hated going near the Wounded Coast, but didn’t trouble them about it for fear of being rude. He overhears Varric mentioning it to one of the twins, but doesn’t question Hawke about it- he figures if they want to talk about it, they will. Romanced: After some time together, he does let them know he understands. “I…will always protect you. From anything you fear.” With a somewhat wry smile, he murmurs, “Even from the ocean, if I must.”
Anders: Is surprised by Hawke’s fear. It just…seems so mundane a thing for someone like Hawke to be afraid of. Then again, Anders once swam across Lake Calenhad to escape the Circle and would have frozen to death had he not been a capable mage. To him, the Lake meant freedom. He realises it obviously doesn’t mean the same thing to other people. “It’s nothing to be ashamed of, you know,” he tells them one day on the Wounded Coast. “I’ll save you if you fall in. I’m an excellent swimmer.” Romanced: He offers to teach them to swim, but doesn’t push it when he’s refused. He cuddles close to them and says, “You know, cats are also scared of water. Sure you’re not hiding any whiskers on that cute face?”
Merrill: Absolutely understands. She’s not that fond of water herself after the journey from Ferelden. She is happy to accompany Hawke to the Wounded Coast, but is always a little bit jittery around the water, and she and Hawke bond over this. It’s good to find someone who actually understands. Romanced: Merrill likes to tell Hawke that she would dive in the middle of a lake for them, but Hawke usually laughs and says they wouldn’t wish that on anyone. Sometimes when they get a little bit wistful, they dream of going on a honeymoon, but they both firmly agree the location must be miles away from a large body of water.
Sebastian: He hears it mentioned by one of the other companions but makes no comment on it until he is alone with Hawke. “If you ever wish to discuss your fear, I will always be able to listen. Mayhaps I won’t share your fears, but I can try to help you cope with them as you wish.” He gives them a few strategies he used to deal with his nightmares following his family’s death, and they seem to work well for Hawke’s panic. Romanced: “We’ll have to make sure your chambers in Starkhaven face away from the Minanter river, won’t we?” He says with a gentle kiss and smile. “My royal spouse will have only the finest protection from all threats, I assure you.”
After 20 shark attacks since 2011, Kelly Slater has called for a cull of sharks on Reunion Island. For those of you that do not know, Kelly Slater is an eleven time world surf champion. This is a guy that has power. He knows the waters better than anyone and he has an extremely strong point. But, I just cannot agree. He claims to be an environmental activist, saving rhinos from poachers, cleaning pollution from the oceans and even claims he is against the finning of sharks. The issue is, he still believes that sharks in Reunion Island should be culled for their attacks on humans. What he fails to mention, though, is that 5 of these attacks did not injure the person involved and quite a few others were at the fault of the human. They knew sharks were present, they knew the waters were unsafe and yet they still went out to the ocean. This is bigger than the attacks on humans. We are talking about the murder of tens or hundreds of sharks. We are destroying our oceans and I can’t sit back to watch.
There are other options to prevent shark attacks! There are other options to save humans and to save the sharks. We must work together to come up with these options and it will make a world of difference. One million starts with one and I’m here to fight the good fight.
Please share to spread awareness. This is extremely important to me but even more important to these sharks.
Warnings: Mention of death, drowning, blood, injury, plane crash
Request: Can you do a Peter x Reader
where the reader is recruited to be an Avenger and she has oceanic powers and
when they were all on a tense dangerous mission, Peter was hurt badly and fell
over deep into the ocean so the reader jumps in and grabs him, pulls him onto
the shore, kissing him (which is a power she has that heals people) to take his
You had been under SHIELD’s protection since your parents
reported your powers to them, as you were able to control water and adapt to
it. It started when you were little and your mom caught you moving your drink
with your hand not touching the glass, and you were put under protection and
training till you were old enough.
In those years, you watched the Avengers grow into an
official thing and become an actual team. You grew close to them, as Fury had
constantly reminded them that one day when you were old enough, you’d be
joining them. Steve, Clint, Wanda and a few others weren’t exactly thrilled at
the idea of a young girl- a teenager- joining the team. They saw you’re potential
but thought you were too young. However, they also knew full well that there
was no way to change Fury’s mind, so decided to just help train you so you were
at the best of your abilities.
Neil knows that Andrew has the biggest sweet tooth in the world, he keeps a secret stash of ice cream in Matt’s freezer (a few times a pint or two has disappeared) and whenever Andrew decides to be insufferably difficult Neil disappears and comes back with a tub and a spoon to bribe him
Everyone thinks Andrew’s favorite color is black, because what else would suit the tiny asshole. It’s actually blue, and only Neil knows. He figures it out because Andrew always asks for things in blue when Nicky forces him to help shop for Neil. He doesn’t question it because everyone has a favorite color, so why can’t Andrew’s be blue? (It’s because Neil’s eyes are blue, though Andrew would never admit it.)
Andrew has grown fond of Neil putting his hands in his hair (even though they’ve since moved on to other parts of the body) and sometimes Andrew will find a way to put his head in Neil’s lap, much to the surprise of the rest of the team, just so that Neil will play with his hair.
Okay but imagine young Mercy coming into work with that bob cut and a broodingTM Genji quietly saying that he thinks it looks nice
Gency. Pre-fall Overwatch era.
Wires and tubes keep him in place. The stationary bed meant for
his nights of resting but doing little to aid in that. His fingers still obsessively
pulls and probes his hands. Metal and flesh. Odd and off.
eyelids does almost nothing to stop the images of red wires eating away his
limbs. Of a sword cutting through the air before he can call out. All
nightmares, even while he’s awake.
…Mark loves Space so much because he’s actually an alien and low key wants to talk about home, but he descends from a desert planet with no oceans and therefore the thought of millions of gallons of water and miles upon miles of water couldn’t seem more terrifying.
