‘don’t, please don’t touch me,’ he says, flinching back, sparking hurt in her eyes. she shows off her new skin and thinks he’ll find her beautiful. she can’t understand that she has burned a lifetime of memories he doesn’t want against the backs of his eyes. she stands in front of the mirror and sees an angel; he cowers from the devil.
‘please let me go,’ he says, because he knows and she knows this room is not his prison. because the ghost of a hand on his is enough to choke him. if she lets him go it’s because she knows he’ll never escape.
‘everything is so new and i am infinite,’ she tells him. she learns with lust, relishes the taste of even minor annoyances on her tongue. he sits in her shadow and wonders what it must feel like to start over. he imagines his brain unfurled like parchment: what would he erase first? he prays for a magical place.
she can’t reprogram his revulsion, the way her presence makes him retch. she can no longer draw promises from his lips. she doesn’t understand.
‘someday you will understand,’ he says. ‘but i understand the universe now. what else is there to know?’ she doesn’t understand why he craves the knife more than her caress.
to be human is to break and this is what breaks her: when his only action is to lead the team to her door, when he allows another woman to lead him out, when he does not once look back.
‘don’t, please don’t touch me,’ he says. she is still perfect but he has lost the right to the intimacy of her hand in his. her body is a warzone and he reads on her skin a mapping of his sins. here, he thinks, is where i betrayed you. here is where i will never forgive myself.
‘please let me go,’ he says, because this room cannot hold the weight of his grief, and she never agreed to share a bed with his demons. she does not touch him but remains tethered to his side, a string connecting their hearts, pulled as taut as it will go.
‘what i feel for you is so old and infinite,’ she whispers, ‘like we’ve been wrapped up in each other for so many lifetimes we don’t know where we begin.’ she is luminescent; he watches from the shadows and wonders what it must feel like to have only the burden of a single history. now he will always have lived a lifetime without her.
he begs her not to try; someday she will understand. ‘what will i understand?’ that her touch burns through him like consecrated water. that he’d never known rebirthing could be so painful. that he will pass through a thousand karmic cycles and never deserve the tenderness in her eyes.
she stands on the shore as waves crash against his body. he wants the feeling of saltwater filling his lungs, but she lifts him back up every time. he can’t let her keep rescuing him; soon they will both be too exhausted to fight.
‘we promised we’d get through anything together.’
‘yes,’ he says, ‘but not this.’ these are not in the wedding vows i planned, he thinks. you’re meant to be so much happier.
‘yes,’ she says. ‘this.’
to be human is to break. to break and to break and to try again. he hands her his heart, because she has always kept it safe. because he has lived without it before.
Imagine Steve in an AU where he adopts the Maximoff twins!
“So Friday tells me if you
want to stay, we have to get started, like yesterday
on your alphabet soup visa type applications because it can take a while and
like—Friday, can you explain it?” Tony
flashed a quick smile. “Pepper usually handles this sort of thing. Sorry.”
“Sure, boss. Their B
visas expire in approximately 4 months.
They’ll need to apply for an H1-B if they want to stay. Though, it’ll be a stretch. I’m not sure if the government will consider
what they do as ‘skilled labor’. Worth a
shot, and they’re familiar with Stark Industries sponsoring visas. We just have to hope they make it through the
Pietro quirked an
eyebrow. “And if we don’t?”
“-We can find a way. Right?”
Tony glanced towards the ceiling.
“We might be able to get you back on an L visa, if we can set you up in
our Sokovia branch. It’s mostly a
foundation, but it’d be just about all we have left as an option. A green card would be an option, too, but
it’d take some time. More than we have.”
After Sokovia, with the twins joining the Avengers in a not-so-low-profile move to the Tower, the government was asking a lot of questions about their allegiances and intent. Tony had lawyers for that, but they were still working on the best way to legally keep the Maximoffs in the country. They kept coming up short. Tony dropped heavily onto
a couch with a groan. “Uggghhh. This is why Pepper does all this. What the hell.”
“Or” Steve had come out of nowhere, dropping a folder onto the glass
table. “We do an adult adoption.”
“Can you do that?” Tony sat up straighter.
“I’ll have to look into it, boss.
But without any living parents, provided they consent, Captain Rogers
should be able to.”
Wanda smiled slyly. “Is that why you give Vision side-eye? Do you
disapprove of the relationship we may or may not have?”
Pietro laughed. “You do a great Disappointed Dad face. I will not call you Dad, though.”
Steve grinned. “I don’t expect you would.”
Wanda glanced over the
paperwork Steve had brought. “Ok. Yes.
But,” she pointed a finger at Steve, “only if you promise to stop
looking so suspicious of Viz.”
Steve held up his
hands. “Sorry, ok.”
Tony clapped his hands
together. “This is great. I’ve gotta go organize a party. Adoption shower. Something.
There’ll be cake. It’s gonna be
great. Friday! Friday, take care of Steve’s paperwork.”
headcanon: mcsnurtle the turtle becomes a therapy pet for barry. whenever he comes back from a mission, he just lies down on the floor with his cowl down and lets the turtle crawl all over him for HOURS. iris tries to get him off the floor in vain and resorts to sitting down with him to play with mcsnurtle
look. u can say i’m being unrealistic or too hopeful or tell me i’m just in denial of the truth when i say macdennis is and could be an explicit thing, but. the facts are these: on the two occasions that mac has come out and accepted himself as a gay man, this has been immediately followed by acknowledgement and acceptance of his feelings for dennis specifically.
mac went from being in the closet to embracing gay stereotypes and fantasising about living with dennis in a matter of hours. mac came out again, and literally one episode later he was having “erotic nightmares” where dennis seduced him, and in the episode after THAT, mac got dennis a present for valentine’s day.
it’s not a coincidence that after accepting his sexuality, mac is more open about his love and attraction for dennis. it’s not a one off thing where dennis is there and happens to be the object of mac’s affections. mac’s love for dennis is consistently highlighted, and as much as i might be another hopeful queer who just wants mac and dennis to be together, that doesn’t change the facts about mac’s character, or the way his feelings for dennis in a romantic and even sexual capacity are made known to us.
As we come closer to the premier of American Gods I wanted to real quick remind everyone that this blog will NOT be spoiler free
I will tag everything, “american gods spoilers” and also “spoilers” just to make sure it gets caught if you have that type of thing. As for mobile bloggers, beware of gifs, screencaps and general screaming about the episodes as they air.
((Ugh. The more I think about Shanks the more I actually absolutely adore this character.
Like I was just thinking, looking through fanart of him and doujin and stuff, how great he looks with that big ol’ dorky smile of his. And I realized again, he has absolutely no reason to be kind. He had no reason he had to sacrifice an arm for Luffy. He doesn’t need anything from anyone, he doesn’t need their protection, he doesn’t need them to like him, he knows what the One Piece is, he knows where it is. He literally could rule the world with the power and tools at his disposal.
But instead, he chooses to be kind. He chooses to be respectful. He chooses to throw parties and make friends and be a helping hand despite only having one to offer. When Buggy starts yelling at him at the war, he could have easily put Buggy in his place- he could have, over time, let power get to his head. But no. He’s just so happy that Buggy hadn’t changed a bit. He could have easily wasted the mountain bandit at the beginning, but instead he just laughed it off until the bandit threatened a small child he had randomly met.
He could literally be the biggest asshole in the world, and no one would be able to stop him. He could arguably create more trouble than any of the villains we’ve seen so far. But instead he invites his rivals to drink with him, he laughs off insults, and he shows nothing but respect (even if a life at sea has left his manners a little rough, his heart is pure) for those around him. Hell, he saved a Marine’s life, and I doubt that’s the first time he had done so given his track record. Two of his most significant appearances in the manga involve him rescuing someone, one person he didn’t even know (he doesn’t even know Luffy and Coby are friends!). Another involves him helping a rival crew by taking time and resources to ensure proper burials. And considering he’s made probably six to seven appearances so far, and maybe three of them consequential (Beginning, his talk with Whitebeard, and the war - I think his meeting with Mihawk is a little bit more just fluff for us, as well as the funeral) I’d say his track record shows him as pretty compassionate.
He willingly put himself in the path of a powerful, angry, homicidal Marine’s lethal attack to protect some random Marine (A natural enemy of a pirate!). And he didn’t even push a fight with the angry Marine, he simply stopped an attack.
Shanks is literally just kind to be kind. There is no hidden motive unless Oda will surprise us all with a Frozen-like Hans twist. But at that point I’d just give up on the series tbh XD))
P5: Take your time! ;D Me: Ok. P5: You won’t be able to see everything in one playthrough, you’ll need at least two to see it all. ;D Me: Ok, but I’m gonna try to see as much as possible in one play through, I’ll just “take my time.” ;D P5: *corrupts my game AND save data, and causes my PS3 to force shut off* Me: ….well eff you too there buddy….Now I see why you need at least two playthroughs BECAUSE OTHERWISE YOU’LL ACTIVATE A FREAKING BUG THAT DOES THIS!
