How would the Karasuno boys act when they have to buy condoms from Ukai's shop, having to look their coach in the eye as they pay for them?

i laughed for like 10 minutes after reading this request i love it. i’ve been having some health issues lately and needed a good pick-me-up

if you like what i do and want to show your support, consider supporting me on ko-fi!

 - admin rachel lauren


The only way I could rationalize them willingly buying condoms from Sakanoshita–as opposed to any place else–knowing that their coach is minding the shop is that the team has some crazy bet going on and these are in the event that they are the loser of said bet. Whether or not they’re doing the do and actually need them is entirely irrelevant.

Daichi

  • He’s one of the few who don’t make it weird somehow. It’s just another transaction, right? Not to mention that Ukai’s made it clear to them that whatever they do outside of volleyball is none of his business.
  • It’s not embarrassing until he gets to the counter to pay and has a moment of internal panic that this is very awkward. But Daichi’s a master of keeping his composure while screaming internally all the while, so you’d never know.
    • It doesn’t hurt that he buys a few things he actually needs along with them. But still.

Suga

  • He tries to play dumb when they’re rung up: “Whoops, how did those get in there? Well, I guess I’ll take them anyway. Doesn’t hurt to have some, right?” Cue the forced bashful laughter.
  • It’s clear to everyone within a 5 mile radius that Suga is playing this up too much. Like it’s painful to watch.
  • Once out of the shop, Suga will show no mercy and pelt either the first person who laughs or the person who suggested the bet in the first place with the box.

Asahi

  • He has to buy at least four or five other things along with them in hopes that Ukai doesn’t give the condoms a second thought.
  • Except he kind of just grabs whatever is within arm’s reach in a tizzy without paying attention, so it’s an interesting mix of things.
  • He forgets how to breathe when Ukai rings his things up. You’d think that having his coach be unfazed by all of this would make it less embarrassing, but the contrast in their demeanors makes it worse. 
    • You can bet his s/o will be the one to buy them from now on because he’s scarred for life.

Nishinoya

  • Slams the box down on the counter and looks Ukai straight in the eyes. It’s the only thing he’s buying.
  • Noya’s got a dead serious look on his face the whole time. Coupled with the fact that he’s standing in a power pose, it makes the transaction feel more like a battle of wills than a simple interaction between a shopkeeper/coach and his customer/pupil.
  • Seriously, Ukai is unnerved by this until Noya shouts out a thanks and bows deeply before leaving the shop, and hearing Tanaka’s cry of “Noya-san is so cool!!!” from outside.

Tanaka

  • Tries the nonchalant whistling thing, which makes the whole process more suspect and embarrassing.
  • “They’re for my sister’s…. boyfriend…”
    • He doesn’t know why he went with that excuse. Even if Saeko had a boyfriend, neither of them would bother having Tanaka buy a box for them.
  • Ukai’s, “Good for them, I guess?” does nothing to alleviate any of Tanaka’s embarrassment.

Ennoshita

  • If it’s questioned, he has his excuse of “A prop for the new movie” all ready to go. Although, he’s also worried that unless he can make up a plot for this movie that doesn’t exist (yet), it might be considered a cause for concern that his movies are getting too adult for high school students to be in charge of.
  • Takes five minutes to come up with an elevator pitch just in case before he has to go in.
  • Ukai doesn’t even ask or indicate that he’s buying condoms and Ennoshita–red-faced and stuttering–goes on about some Seth Rogen-esque stoner comedy that he’s working on.
    • “Well, just don’t get in trouble filming something like that. You’re still a kid, after all.”

Narita

  • Can’t stop dropping his change, which is the perfect excuse to physically hide how ridiculous he feels.
  • The transaction from then on can be described as swift, as in the second Ukai hands him the bag Narita takes it and heads for the door with a, “Hm thanks coach see you tomorrow bye!” It’s all in one fluid motion and yes, that goodbye is punctuation-less .
  • Just…never bring this up again. He’d rather forget the whole thing.

Kinoshita

  • He can’t go in alone. He has to do this with at least one other person going into the shop with him, and Noya is the only one who also isn’t embarrassed by this in any way. The other second-years are embarrassed by proximity, so-to-speak.
    • Except Noya gets distracted trying to find his usual ice cream flavor, so Kinoshita has to ride solo at the counter.
  • It’s clear he’s nervous about the whole thing; his whole body is stiff and he reacts to anything Ukai says as if the man is correcting his technique during practice.
  • He does have to keep his eyes on his wallet and money most of the transaction because there’s no one he can look his coach in the eye while buying them.

Kageyama

  • He knows he’s not smart and that everyone knows this as well, so he decides to tackle this issue by using this to advantage.
  • Except he anticipates Ukai will say anything in the first place, and blurts something out totally unprompted..
    • Ukai: “That’ll be–”
    • Kageyama: What do you mean those aren’t water balloons?
  • The following is the most tense five seconds of silence you’ll ever see between these two.
  • He’s so red that Ukai is worried that Kageyama’s head might explode. Or he passes out on the spot, especially because he stops breathing.

Hinata

  • He thinks he can play it cool, but it’s like watching a trainwreck.
  • He suddenly can’t hear anything. There’s so much blood rushing to his head that he can only hear that in his ears. Ukai tells him how much he owes and Hinata keeps repeating, “What?” each time it happens.
    • “Just… take them, alright, Hinata?”
  • Once he leaves the store, his face seems to be stuck in a smile and he doesn’t react to anything anyone says or does to him. His soul has left his body. He’s straight-up astral projecting in front of the vending machines outside the shop. Never make him do that again.

Tsukishima

  • Like Daichi, he also is does not make it weird. The glare from his glasses absolutely helps to hide anything his eyes might give away about feeling like an idiot the whole time.
  • But you could replace the condoms with any other item in the store and everything would be exactly the same about this interaction.
  • The rest of the team is mad because there was no point of having the loser of their bet do that if the loser wasn’t affected by it.
    • But this eventually backfires on Tsukki because guess who Noya and Tanaka have now playfully dubbed, “The Condom King.” He hates it.

Yamaguchi

  • He’s a blend of Suga and Kageyama in this situation: “I thought they were rubber gloves! What? T-those aren’t mine!” (Which one is it, Yams?)
  • Things get worse because the barcode scanner just won’t scan this box and every second feels ten times longer than it actually is during this.
  • At this point he’s just praying that no one else–sans the rest of the boys–has to bear witness to this. If Yachi walked in and saw, he’d probably die.

i’ll probably do more of these if people like them ??? with other pride colors or skin tones or w/e

{please dont delete my caption or steal these thx}

Touka always stands out from the rest of the people Kaneki cares about

this isn’t very important but it might give you some touken feels so heya.

Something I really take into consideration is the fact that Touka always, always stands out from the rest of the people when it comes to Kaneki’s feelings.

In chapter 72, Kaneki having saved Yomo from Arima, Ayato being there as well and having left Hinami behind… the first person he looks at, is Touka. He doesn’t even look at Yomo to ask him if he’s alright (poor uncle), second page of the chapter and his eyes are already glued on Touka in a huge panel.

then he thinks of everyone, asking if they managed to escape, but the first person he mentions is Touka. He was there exclusively to save Hinami, he could have said “I hope Hinami and the others are okay”, but he puts Touka first.

then comes Ayato, explaining how everyone trust in him and expect great things from him, but he doesn’t include Touka within the rest, he dedicates a huge special panel to his sister, excluding her from the rest of the people he cares about, making like a honorific mention. 

Then here. Kaneki says that it was “Yoshimura’s perspective” what made him change his mind and recognize his mistakes, but he thinks solely of Touka. 

Same here. He’s thanking everyone, but dedicates a panel to think especially about her.

I’m probably missing more scenes, but my point is that Touka most of the time stands out from the rest of the people he cares about, and everyone (including Kaneki) acknowledges something to her, she always gets a special panel when the scene is focusing on Kaneki’s feelings towards others, she’s always being separated from the rest, implying how important she is for him, in a different way compared to the other characters. 

How to draw

HAIR


Don’t forget to download the elemaps and brushes Text !

Download elemap 

Download brushtext


These brushes are the ones which I use the most :

RUSSESKETCH is for sketching

CYAPEN is for blending

And Crayon is (one of SAI’s default brushes ) for filling


Let’s begin with a messy sketch :

On a new layer, you need to use the “RUSSESKETCH brush”

and you don’t need to worry about drawing neatly!


Make a new layer to draw over the sketch.

(with a colour of your choice) Use CRAYON brush and make sure to not leave any gaps!

Then take the bucket and fill it in!

Then you will fuse your 2 layers together


Now its time to blend! Take the “CYAPEN brush”, then take another colour of your choice ,you can add even more details on your hair and try to give it an interesting shape!


TIPS

1: You can try many elemaps! It might give you some interesting textures to use!


2: Feel free to change the scale, density or texture and then try to experiment in even more interesting ways!

3: Don’t be shy! Try messing with the contrast! It might give an interesting colour to the hair!

4: It works for colour gradient!

5: If you want to make the texture and shape of your haircut better, don’t use the eraser! Keep your brush and click on the transparent button!



If there is something you don’t understand or something I should talk about and explain even more, feel free to send me a question! I will try my best to explain!

I hope this can help some artists to improve!

Thanks  @jendra82 without you i couldn’t do this tutorial !

  • Regina: You can't just go around killing people!
  • Robin: Oh, so it's fine for you to have a vault of hearts and kill random peasants, but when I try to kill one person, I'm the bad guy?
  • Regina: Based on everything else that's happened in this show, yes. Murder is wrong except for when I do it. The sooner you accept that, the better.

anonymous asked:

Hi! I just found out about your blogs and I totally fell in LOVE! Can I get a hc with RFA+Saeran's reaction to sick and weak MC? I haven't been feeling well this week so that's why I'm requesting this. Please and thank you!

Hope you feel better~ Here’s your headcanons:)


Zen:

  • He noticed you’ve been sneezing a lot
  • More than when he was in the same room as a cat
  • So he came behind you and felt your forehead
  • You were definitely sick
  • You push him away a lot because you don’t want him to get sick
  • He has rehearsals after all
  • He insists he still wants to take care of you, although he takes precautions and wears a mask
  • He brings everything to you so you don’t have to get up
  • Although, he has a lot of strange remedies as to what cures sickness
  • “Drink this! This is how I get over a cold in a few hours.”
  • All of them taste horrible, and Zen realizes he just recovers quickly
  • It has nothing to do with the mixture vinegar and orange juice he tried to give you
  • He tries to sing to you to relax you, but….
  • “Zen, your voice is lovely, but it’s really not helping this headache.”

Yoosung:

  • You had slept in late and you had a bad fever
  • You said you’d take care of it, but he insisted that he take care of you
  • He says he’s got everything under control
  • But as soon as he leaves the room, he’s freaking out
  • He has no idea what medicine to give you, other than pain killers
  • Calls his mom and asks a bunch of questions about OTC meds and recipes that help your sickness
  • Puts in a movie for you while he’s doing errands
  • He also gives you a teddy bear to cuddle while he’s running around
  • Suffocates you in blankets
  • When you push them off, he scolds you and puts them right back on until the fever breaks
  • The only one you don’t push off is his “Lucky LOLOL” blanket
  • Maybe because it smells like him
  • The soup he makes is so good though

Jaehee:

  • She’s good at the practical stuff
  • She makes sure you have a doctor’s appointment
  • She picks up your prescription
  • She knows exactly what medicines to give you and when
  • But she’s clueless as to what might make you feel better
  • She’ll try putting on some DVD’s for you, but you still look so miserable
  • Maybe some cough drops to soothe your cough, but what flavor you like
  • So, she overcompensates a lot
  • Ice pops of different flavors, so much tea, and lots of movies, books, and pillows
  • She apologizes and says she feels like she’s doing a horrible job
  • But you assure her you feel so cared for and feeling so much better

Jumin:

  • Your room becomes a mini hospital
  • He makes sure everything is super sanitary and nothing irritates you further
  • Is sad when you have to keep Elizabeth away as part of that, but it’s a sacrifice 
  • Gets the best doctors to get you the best medicines
  • He wears a mask, because he can’t really get sick
  • Actually, he’s slightly paranoid about it
  • He holds your hand and stays by your side
  • But uses hand sanitizer every few minutes just to be sure
  • Thanks, Jumin
  • He reads to you from that storybook on the shelf
  • He even does different voices and gives excessive commentary
  • But it makes you laugh
  • He has a family recipe for some soup that he makes himself
  • You’re adding it to your list of favorite foods, next to his pancakes
  • You recover pretty quickly because of it

Seven:

  • The RFA was worried that Seven might be the worst care-taker because he lived on his own for so long
  • But he often took care of Saeran who was almost always sick as a kid
  • He knew exactly what to do
  • He got super serious when he realized you had a fever
  • He can’t cook well…so no homemade soup, but canned soup is fine
  • Gives you the right meds and keeps track of it so you don’t have to think about it
  • Actually keeps things clean so you don’t get worse from bacteria, etc.
  • Sends you memes through texts at random points of the day to make you laugh 
  • Nights are always the roughest with a fever, so he stays at your side
  • Makes sure you have those cold packs that are refreshed every few hours
  • Ends up falling asleep on the bedside
  • He really doesn’t know how to stay away from, so you swap places the next week when he gets sick

Saeran:

  • He gets sick a lot
  • So, he understands
  • It’s also why he’s wearing a mask, gloves, and a robe whenever he enters the room
  • He brings you a bag full of medicines to help
  • He makes sure you have everything before leaving you alone to rest
  • He’ll come in and check on you every few hours, but other than he’s in another room
  • You walk out into the living room once and he starts freaking out
  • He’s fumbling for his gloves and mask and distancing himself
  • “I love you, but I don’t love your germs. Please stay away.”
  • You laugh because you know he means well
  • He will constantly text you though
  • “Saeran, why text me when we’re in the same house?”
  • “Why get sick when I can stay healthy in the living room?”
  • He’s more eager for you to get better than you are

Dating guide for scorpio
  • Scorpio x Aries: This would be a VERY intense relationship, but if you don't both work really hard to see things from both perspectives chances are it will either burn out or dissolve into fighting over time.
  • Scorpio x Taurus: Opposites attract and you'll balance each other out really well if you can get the momentum to start something more than friendship (which is harder than it sounds). Just make sure that the Taurus knows how much you care about them and this could be a beautiful relationship!
  • Scorpio x Gemini: I really can't see this working out; opposites may attract but you just might be TOO opposite here. For a possibility of this being a good relationship, you'll both need to make sacrifices and give/take in the beginning, and afterwards the relationship will require a lot of maintenance to keep the spark from dying.
  • Scorpio x Cancer: Yes please!!! You have a lot in common but enough differences to keep things interesting. Also, you'll both adore each other and want the same from the other, leading to some incredible chemistry.
  • Scorpio x Leo: This would be difficult to say the least. You might feel like you're just giving and not getting anything back from the Leo, and this could start a bit of a chain reaction of passive-aggression. Learn to accept each other's differences, though, and maybe you can make this work!
  • Scorpio x Virgo: This pairing is one of those fairy tale couples in the beginning; smooth sailing with almost no rough weather. However, if either of you gets tired of the steady consistency from this relationship, things could get even more rough than you want.
  • Scorpio x Libra: Quite similar to Scorpio x Gemini but a bit deeper and more emotional. That's a plus, but at the same time there would still be the problem of how opposite your relationship needs are.
  • Scorpio x Scorpio: One word: INTENSE. Go for it, tiger, but you might reach a point where you need to slow down and take a deep breath, maybe even a break. That's okay and don't be afraid to communicate those feelings to your partner. Chances are they feel the same, and building that communication is crucial in this relationship.
  • Scorpio x Sagittarius: Depth certainly wouldn't be a problem in this because you're both extremely deep and insightful people. Even if this pairing doesn't work out, chances are you'll both learn a lot from this relationship that can be carried onto future ones, making it well worth it!
  • Scorpio x Capricorn: First thing's first, you'll need to get each other out of your shells or else this relationship will be doomed. Once you do, you'll learn a lot from each other and this could blossom into something beautiful, but if you go into things before you're truly open with each other, this could lead to some serious fighting and the whole thing may be downright toxic.
  • Scorpio x Aquarius: This would be such an honest, down-to-earth (ironically enough) relationship; the cute, quirky kind that you see in movies. Your ups and downs will be at their extremes, but if you hold on tight you could get something like a movie ending from this, too!
  • Scorpio x Pisces: I honestly ship this as friends more than as a relationship. As a relationship, things would start out more awkwardly than ever and you'd hit tons of rough patches because of how different you are from each other. The one big thing for this is to expect the unexpected.

Goodbye, cuties, I'm going to drop tumblr

Dear Tumblr friends…

It’s been 2-3 years since I made this tumblr and it’s been quite a journey, and I’m really glad I made it because I found a lot of friends, love, inspiration, and so much amazing and lovely people whom I spend moments with…

There so much I learned, so much I shared, lived, laughed & stressed over about in this blog, even when it was anime related only, you guys were always so nice when I shared my personal posts, when I asked for asks to spend time, that asked me for edits when I wanted to make one but couldn’t decide…

I’ll take all those memories with me now, as I decide on dropping for good this tumblr. Like I said, it’s been a journey, and today this journey comes to an end… tbh I’m not going to delete this blog, after all, I can’t exactly detach myself from it so easily but at the same time I’m not really interested in keeping it updated anymore, it has become a boring thing to do and that’s not supposed to be the purpose of this blog.

I met a lot of great people thanks to this blog, I keep them all in my heart, all of you, Katie, Lelou, Aidah, Sen, Seda, Emma, Kat, Kisa, Momo, you guys, were amazing to me while I was here and I still have contact with must of you outside tumblr and that makes me so happy?!? I’m really happy I can still be friends with you all outside this website and I just can’t believe we have made it this far. I’m really thankful.

Anyway this is really long already so I’m just going to say, thank you for sticking with me all this time, through my Kuroshitsuji, Shingeki, Free!, Tokyo Ghoul, Magi & Bts phases, tbh just by following me I’m really grateful to you.

I hope I didn’t bother any of you with my spam, or with my bts posts when you didn’t want any kpop in your dashboards lmao, seriously, thank you for sticking with me even after that.

I love you all, and if you wanna keep contact or just want to talk to me I’ll leave my current active social media here:

Twitter: http://twitter.com/yoongihearted (warning: I tweet about bts on daily basis lmao)
Instagram: uriekookie
Line: kurokocchiz

Thank you so much for this amazing 3 YEARS I LOVE YOU ALL.

With love,
Montse.

Offerings/Devotional Acts for Aphrodite

Before we get to the list I want to say that in no way is this all you can do or give to Aphrodite. I always encourage people to get creative and personalize their worship. Think about why you decided to become a devotee and try to use those reasons to shape your devotion.  Okay now on to the list!

-Incense/Candle: This is fairly obvious and great for when you don’t have much and/or want to do something simple. I also like to do this when I want to have a long conversation with Aphrodite. It also helps to use incense or candles that represent or are associated with Aphrodite such as rose incense and red/pink candles.

-Food/Drink: If you want to offer something more than a candle or incense you can offer Aphrodite some food or drink. Wine is typically the go to offering, but for those who are underage or who just don’t drink, Apple Juice is a great substitute! As for food, chocolate is always appreciated by Aphrodite. When I first started out I gave Aphrodite some M&Ms as an offering and she did not complain, lol! Also if you are someone who likes to cook/bake you can always offer her some of what you made! She will be so delighted!

-Write/read a poem: If you enjoy poetry you can write your very own poem for Aphrodite. It doesn’t necessarily need to be about her exactly. It can be a love poem or a poem simply inspired by her (you know she’ll love that!). If you don’t consider yourself a writer but have a favorite poem that makes you think of Aphrodite go ahead and read it to her!

-Recite a hymn or myth: This is pretty straightforward. You can find a hymn about Aphrodite that you enjoy and read it to her and the same with the myths. She never grows tired of hearing them I promise you!

-Make an offering bottle: Okay this is actually super easy! This is one of the first offerings I did that wasn’t a candle, incense, or wine. You basically just put certain items associated with Aphrodite into a bottle and give it to her as an offering. For example, my offering bottle consists of roses, myrtle, rose quartz, stones I thought were pretty, and seashells. I put them all in a heart shaped bottle (you can find them at Michaels and AC Moore) and it now sits on my altar. You can add as little or as much as you would like or have access to. You can also decorate the bottle if you feel artsy or creative. It’s up to you!

- Make something: Okay so this is pretty general and can encompass a lot, but that’s the point! Use your talents and interests to make something special for Aphrodite. Draw a picture, write a song, crochet something, knit, sew, sculpt, cut out pictures and make a collage, color a picture in a coloring book that reminds you of Aphrodite, the options are limitless! Use your imagination! Think of it like when you were a kid and made things for your Mom. They weren’t necessarily works of art but your mom loved them regardless because you made it for her. It’s the same concept, so don’t worry about whether its “good” because Aphrodite will love it regardless and show it off to anyone who comes to visit.  So basically she’ll show Ares xD

-Spread the Love: Make a promise to not beat yourself up for a day! Be kind and patient with yourself and learn to love yourself. Also, spread Aphrodite’s mission of self-love! Be kind and supportive to others. Pay compliments instead of insults.

-Pamper yourself: Now this is one of the HUGE benefits to being an Aphrodite devotee. Part of our devotion is doing wonderful things for ourselves. Set aside some time to do some pampering. This can be at home or at a spa, and it can be as long or as short as you see fit. You can take a warm soothing bath and throw in whatever relaxes you. I actually love using Lush bath bombs and they have ones that are great for Aphrodite, such as Rose Queen, Sex Bomb and for my fellow sea lovers you can’t go wrong with Big Blue! You can apply a face mask, paint your nails, or rub on some lotion. Basically anything you see as pampering and you enjoy, just make sure as you do it you think about how beautiful and amazing you are!

-Sex:  Sex, or more specifically your orgasm, can be dedicated and offered to Aphrodite (remember to practice safe sex!). You can also do the same with masturbation. I actually have specific toys that I dedicated to her so I use those when I want to offer my orgasm to her.  I won’t go into too much detail about it but if you would like to know more about this feel free to send me an ask, I also have no problem if you want me to answer privately just say so.

-Smut it up: This is for all my smutty fanfic writers/readers and for all you whose guilty pleasure is reading those terrible (yet so good) romance novels. Keep doing what you are doing just give thanks to Aphrodite for all the smut! This can also apply to movies as well!

-Aphrodite playlist: Make a playlist of all your favorite songs that remind you of Aphrodite and play it when you want to show your respect and appreciation for her.

-Make up: If you are someone who applies makeup you can dedicate your makeup routine to Aphrodite. You can also ask her to bless your makeup to help you feel confident throughout the day.

-Beauty: Since the idea of “beauty” is extremely objective almost anything really can be an offering to Aphrodite, as long as it is something you believe to be beautiful. You can also go outside and appreciate the beauty around you. Take some pictures!

-Think about her: Life gets chaotic at times and you might find it hard to give Aphrodite the type of devotion you feel she deserves. Don’t stress out! I struggle with anxiety and depression so sometimes it’s rough for me to get out of bed let alone make an offering to my wonderful Goddess. At those times I have found that simply thinking about Aphrodite is actually enough. Think about all the things you adore and respect about her. You can even speak it out loud if you want, but saying it all in your head is fine also.

CONGRATULATIONS KIM SEOKJIN!!!!!

Jin just graduated from Konkuk University. Despite his VERY busy schedules, the comebacks, the award shows, live performances/concerts, photoshoots and others, he graduated.

I believe he must be super sad right now as he can’t attend his own graduation ceremony, something that he worked hard for himself, on his own, can’t celebrate it with family and siblings. Even Jimin said so, that he must be pretty upset but pretended to be okay with it. But I hope he’s feeling okay and happy as his 6 bangtan dongsaengs are there to congratulate him. 

 If you feel like giving up in studying, you might wanna take him as an inspiration. Also, it’s okay if you cannot graduate on time. Nothing to be ashamed of and as long as you manage yourself, take care of your mental health, I hope you guys can keep up with your study. Fighting! 

Again, Congratulations Kim Seokjin! 🎉👨🏻‍🎓 Be happy and stay healthy! I hope you and the rest of the bangtan get to rest well and thank you for all of your hardwork. I love you my PINK PRINCESS! 💗

Red and Gold

Hey guys! Here I am in this situation again. Because I am such a wonderful friend (sarcasm), I missed another birthday. This time, the wonderful Anika at @avengerofyourheart had her birthday, and I was not online…

To make that up to her, I am dedicating this fic to her, as we also celebrate the birthday of our one and only Tony Stark! I hope you like it sweetheart, and happy birthday! (I didn’t go into too much detail with the cake- I didn’t want to make any mistakes!!!)

TIMELINE-2014

~¤~¤~¤~¤~¤~¤~¤~¤~¤~¤~¤~¤~¤~¤~¤~¤~¤~

You sat in your loungeroom, putting the final touches on the wrapping paper. The ribbon was being very stubborn, but so were you, and you finally managed to get it curled. You smiled at it with satisfaction.

Then you heard the ding of the oven, and you made your way to the kitchen, putting on your oven mitts, and removing the cake. You placed it on the rack to cool before icing it.

Today was Tony Stark’s birthday. It hadn’t snuck up on you like birthdays sometimes did, because he was talking about his big party a week in advance.

You would attempt to attend the party that night, but Bucky was still very much in a state of confusion, and you weren’t sure you wanted to be away from him. You thought about him down in the gym with Steve, and smiled. It had been less than a month since you had discovered that Bucky was still alive, and it was still strange to you. Wonderful, but strange.

The cake was ready. You carefully placed it into a container, making sure not to damage the arc reactor icing on the top, and pressed the lid on. Checking the time on the oven, you saw it was 2:30. Perfect.

You took up the cake and gift, and made your way out of the apartment, and up to Tony’s lab. He would still be in there at this time, even on his birthday. You nodded when you heard the sounds of his equipment, and a swear word enter your ear, confirming this.

You knocked awkwardly, trying not to upset the cake. Tony continued his work, so you waited patiently. He had heard you, he just needed a moment to finish whatever it was he was currently doing.

When the door opened, Tony’s face went from one of distracted concentration, to that of a smile. “(Y/N), what brings you here?”

“Well, I thought I’d wish you a happy birthday early,” you replied, lifting the cake and the gift slightly for emphasis.

“Thanks (Y/N)!” he replied, taking the wrapped gift you had held out for him. He ushered you inside, and carefully cleared a space at one of his cluttered work benches. He pulled a stool over for you, and you sat a little awkwardly on it, anxiety beginning to course through you. You were never good at this part.

Tony brought his own stool over, and smiled at you. You felt how happy he was, and your nerves eased slightly.

“Open it,” you prompted gently.

Tony looked at the gift for a moment, and then back at you. “Are you sure you don’t want me to wait until everyone else is here?”

You shook your head. “I prefer doing this sort of thing one on one. Besides, I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to… stay… at the party.”

Tony looked at you, understanding in his eyes. You were worried about the disappointment you were expecting to feel emanate from him, but that never came.

“I’m sorry, Tony. I’m such a bad friend,” you uttered.

“You aren’t a bad friend, (Y/N). You are an amazing friend, and a caring wife. And aside from those things, you must also be so confused about everything.”

Confused was probably a good word to use, but you didn’t confirm his assertion.

“Do you want me to postpone the party? I’m more than happy to,” Tony offered sincerely.

“Oh no, Tony, don’t do that! You’ve been looking forward to this! It’s your birthday!” You replied, frustrated that you had somehow managed to make things difficult, again.

“Alright. But, since you may not come, we’re having a little party together now, OK?”

“OK,” you smiled.

“JARVIS, could you play my party mix, please?” Tony asked.

Of course sir.

The music began to play, and Tony went back to his gift. Your nerves returned as he ripped the paper away. His face was still for a moment, before a large smile flashed across it.

“This looks really comfortable, (Y/N), thank you!” Tony exclaimed, holding the thick, wool jumper up to himself.

“Well, I figured this would be a gift that your elderly Auntie Barnes would make for you,” you replied. You could sense that he liked it, but you still felt silly about your reasoning.

“You made this?”

“Yeah, I made it. I used to knit and sew a lot when I was younger, especially during the war. I haven’t really done it since I woke up, but I guess I’ve still got it,” you explained, twiddling your fingers.

Tony looked at you in awe, and you could sense the affection, when he put the red and gold jumper on. He stood up, and posed like a model might.

“What do you think?”

“It looks wonderful on you, Tony!”

You were happy he liked it. While at first you had intended the gift as a joke, the further you progressed with it, the more you realised you were trying to give Tony a gift a family member might. You wanted him to feel warm and loved.

“Cake next, or dancing?” Tony asked, pulling you out of your reverie.

“Wait. How are we supposed to have cake in here?” You asked, looking around the lab.

“Well, I used to have a no food policy, but Bruce gets so cranky when he’s hungry, and we know how well that could go,” Tony explained, moving to a cupboard and opening it. Inside was a mini fridge, a microwave, a few plates, and some cutlery. “So I had all of this put in.”

He picked up two plates, a knife, and two forks, and returned to his stool. You slid the cake over to him, still in its container, and he pried the lid off, chuckling when he saw the arc reactor design. He looked at you, and raised his eyebrow.

“I was telling Pepper I was going to make you a cake, and she suggested this,” you explained with a small laugh.

“My god, she knows me,” he answered, cutting two slices of the cake as best he could with the knife.

“Wait, what about the wish?” You asked him.

“Oh, I don’t have any candles in here… I have a bunsen burner,” Tony thought out loud.

“Just make a wish. You don’t need fire for that,” you smiled.

“Alright, alright. I wish-”

“Not out loud! You think the wish.”

“Do you believe it’ll make a difference?”

“Not really,” you replied sheepishly. You weren’t sure how you felt about wishing. You had stopped believing a long time ago, but with Bucky back, you weren’t sure. “But it’s tradition.”

“Fine,” Tony huffed. He made his wish, silently, and then gave you a piece of cake. You chatted together as you ate, about all sorts of things.

When you had both finished, Tony stood and held his hand out to you. You looked at him, confused.

“It’s a party, (Y/N),” he sighed. “People dance at parties.”

“Right,” you answered.

You stood as well, and placed your hand in his. He pulled you close, and you danced together.

“Thank you, (Y/N),” Tony began. “Aside from the jumper, and cake, you’ve given me the best thing you possibly could today.”

“And what’s that?”

“You’ve made me feel… loved.”

“Of course you’re loved, Tony,” you replied, squeezing his shoulder gently as you kept dancing.

“Please don’t stop… making me feel that way.”

“I won’t.”

You both continued to dance, Tony holding you especially tight, when eventually JARVIS let you know that Bruce was coming. You ended your little party, and you hugged Tony, kissing him on the cheek. You wished you could say the words you longed to say. I love you. But you knew it would make him uncomfortable.

As you left, Tony told you it was ok if you wanted to skip his party that night. “You should be with Metal Man. Besides, I don’t think even my extravaganza tonight could top the party we just had.”

You smiled, thanked him, and left.

Later that night, as you sat with Bucky, helping him through a memory he thought he had, Steve got home from the party.

“How did it go?” You asked.

“Good, good. Loud. Oh, and he wore your jumper all night, (Y/N), and he wouldn’t take it off,” he replied.
