☆Genre: Angst/Fluff/Smut || CEO!Jimin

☆Pairing: Jimin x Reader

☆Length: 22.7k

☆Summary: Like a constellation hung from the skies above, he who had once illuminated the lackluster night sky of the bustling city appeared to you like  a meteor shower raining upon the pitch black horizon, And just as quick and abrupt as the celestial display had graced its way through the lonely skies above, he left just as suddenly as it had arrived. But you should’ve expected this ill-fated story, a waitress struggling to get by had never been fitting of an heir-to-be CEO. What was written in the stars was written into history, and history is an irrevocable phenomenon that cannot be reversed.

Tano and Kenobi: A Profitable Exchange

Previously on Tano and Kenob…

Captured by pirates, Jedi Knight Ahsoka Tano and Padawan Learner Obi-Wan Kenobi lead their fellow prisoners to freedom. Now in possession of the very ship that boarded their own cruiser, and surrounded by the rest of the pirate fleet, Ahsoka Tano must strike a hard bargain with the pirate matriarch Mama Ohnaka if she and Obi-Wan want to make it back to Coruscant and the Jedi Temple in one piece.

First | Previous | Next | AO3


“I’m listening, Knight Tano. Tell me more.”

Let’s hope this works, Ahsoka thought to herself as she stepped forward to face the viewing screen, noticing out of the corner of her eye Obi-Wan stepping up next to Hondo in case he decided to try anything foolish.

She wasn’t sure if Obi-Wan was fully capable of handling Hondo at fifteen but she didn’t have time to worry about that right now.

“I would like to propose an exchange, Mother Ohnaka,” Ahsoka said, holding open her hands. “You see, we both have something the other one wants. Your son’s pirates have control of my ship, and I have your son, his ship, and his crew.”

“You are a Jedi,” Mama Ohnaka snickered, waving a dismissive hand. “It is against your Code to harm an innocent like my precious little gorka berry.”

Obi-Wan frowned at that. “What is a gorka berry?”

Hondo rolled his eyes and leaned over to mutter to Obi-Wan. “A sweet fruit my mother favors above all others save peaches from Naboo. She thinks it is a charming nickname.”

“Hondo, I can hear you!” Mama Ohnaka shot back, her beady eyes narrowed at son. “Oh, what happened to my sweet little boy? Where did I go wrong? How could you have fallen prey to Jedi of all people! They do not know the value of credits! They do not even like credits!”

Obi-Wan and Hondo exchanged looks and wisely went silent.

“Mother Ohnaka,” Ahsoka interrupted what looked like the start of a long tirade against the Jedi with a forced, bright smile. “While it is true that we Jedi are taught to eschew the search for credits for credits’ sake, we do understand that there are some things that are worth more than credits.”

Mama Ohnaka scoffed at that. “Oh? Like what?”

Ahsoka activated her blade in a bright flash of blue and held it up to Hondo’s throat. “This.”

Kidnapped - Damian Wayne x Reader

Originally posted by mrjasontodd

Requested by gracesnowstorm  -  Damian Wayne x Reader You know the comics where Damian had powers but then they disappeared and no one is really sure where they went. Well this story is afterwards, Damian and the Reader are both 13 and are BEST FRIENDS, the Reader is even aware of his role as Robin. So the Reader is kidnapped by a criminal and is held for ransom which makes the Batfamily devastated because they’re very close to the Reader. They find out the Reader is in an abandoned warehouse, they go and break into the place, fight off the goons and Damian looks for the Reader. Damian finds him or her locked inside a room so he breaks in and he realizes the Reader hasn’t even been touched once, no bruises, no cuts, and behold, the criminal shows up. Damian and the criminal fight each other, the criminal grabs the Reader and tells Damian if he takes a step closer, he’ll snap the Reader’s neck and kill him or her. Damian backs down, the criminal’s goons tie up Damian, but then the criminal starts beating up the Reader. Damian tries to break free, get them to stop, cry for help, but its a sound-proof room so no one can hear. Anger and sadness over whelms him, his heart, thoughts, and emotions running 600 miles per hours and thats when he snaps. He regains his powers back and they’re more powerful and he has a larger range of powers than he did before. He breaks free, kills the criminal and his goons with his powers, even though it’s against Bruce’s no-kill rule, he picks up the barely alive Reader, gets the rest of the Batfam and they leave the warehouse. After about a month of recovering in the hospital, the Reader is released and goes back to the Wayne Manor and the entire Batfamily takes a day off of everything to be with the Reader and they play boardgames, then when time to go, Damian walks the Reader back to his or her parent’s car, and before he or she can get in, he stops the Reader and tells them no matter what, he’ll make sure NOTHING will happen to the Reader, the Reader smiles and they confess they love each other, (only as friends for now, later in life, like late teens, they can date each other and marry each other and have children) then the Reader gets in the car and it drives off.  


“(Y/N), I need to speak to you,” Damian demanded, striding to your locker as you struggled to open it. You placed your backpack on the floor, working the combination lock. 

“Yeah?” you asked, grunting when the locker still didn’t open. You pulled on it, hoping by some miracle it would open. 

Damian glared at you, hitting your locker. Much to your surprise, it popped open. “How?” you asked, your eyes widening. 

“TT,” Damian huffed, pursing his lips. You shook your head in amazement before taking out the books you needed for homework. “I need to discuss this weekend with you.”

“Yes?” You stuffed the books in your backpack, glancing at him. He still had his customary scowl on his face. Zipping up your backpack, you slipped it onto your back while pulling your phone from your pocket.

“I have purchased the new Resident Evil game, and I want you to come over,” Damian ordered, shutting your locker for you. You smiled at him, glancing at your phone. 

“Sure, I’d love to, Damian.” His scowl softened. You both started to walk out of the building. “But don’t you have that big mission this weekend?”

Damian growled, stomping his foot. “Father is keeping me at home. He insists the mission is too dangerous.” You patted his arm, knowing he was upset by the tone of his voice. 

“Well, I’m sure your father is right,” you began, wincing when Damian glared at you. “You are capable, Damian. Your father is probably being overly cautious.”

“TT.” Damian opened the door allowing you to step outside first. He followed, falling into step beside you once again. “What time would be appropriate for me to pick you up for this weekend?”

You paused with a suspicious look on your face. “You? Don’t tell me you’re going to drive your dad’s limo to get me again? We almost got caught last time.”

Damian snorted. “If you are so against it, I suppose I could ask Pennyworth to drive.” 

“Good,” you sighed in relief. You came to a stop at the street corner where you and Damian usually parted ways. “How about ten o’clock on Saturday?” You elbowed him playfully. “Unless that’s too early for you.”

“TT, of course not,” Damian huffed, wrinkling his nose. 

You laughed before heading home. “See you later, Damian,” you called from over your shoulder. Damian waved at you, turning to where Alfred was waiting with the car.

That’s not the ship’s name

I am going to try and start a story series of aliens dealing with humans and their craziness from the point of view of an alien captain. This is story #2 in the series. I will call it #The Captain’s Logs.


Captain’s Log: Day 14 of 854.

   Since the issue with the pet ‘Tiny’ who has been kept under control, more issues with the humans have come up. 

       We tried to ignore it at first in hopes that it would go away but this is borderline insanity, even for them. They have practically committed mutiny and been sent out the airlock for a joke. 

       On day 3, a few of the Human crew started calling the ship “The Enterprise.” They assured us it was a compliment from human history and referred to a great science exploratory ship from a fictional series. We accepted that explanation but after some mild research, we have determined this was new name was an insult meant to undermine our authority. First off this ‘Enterprise’ ship was more of a war ship, filled with lasers and torpedo’s, constantly in battle or distress. To make it worse many crew members died on the show. That sounds like no science ship at all, no good captain would be proud of such voyages. We have lost no crew members on our voyages, for them to suggest we were a captain like that is a stain upon our honour. If the insults to our person were not enough there were soon arguments between the humans of who was the best captain. When we pointed out that all the captains were terrible and should not have been in charge of a ship, the humans laughed at us and said “It’s just a show.” We fail to see how that is relevant.  After more research on the show and seeing all the deaths of multi-species and entire planets, plus wars, and illogical acts and violation of rules we immediately ordered for this name calling to stop.

    Unfortunately for us this only seemed to encourage more Humans to call the ship by the wrong name. It soon reached a point that even other species started to call it the Enterprise. So just 2 days past we sent out an order that any crew member found calling the ship by any name other than the name painted out on the hull would be arrested for treason and court marshaled. 

   Yes we agree this seemed extreme but it seems only extremes work on the humans. And work it did we thought, the word Enterprise was not said for the rest of the day. However,  the next day, the word gained a new vigor. More than half of the crew were now calling the ship Enterprise. At a loss since we could not court marshal the entire crew or even imprison that many we stopped crew member Starburn, of the Solterria species as they were known for being level headed and logical. When asked why so many were disobeying orders he looked us directly in the face and stated the ship is now named Enterprise. We nearly attacked him based on his bold statement and defiance. We tried to calmly asked an explanation of his statement. “By your statement as of the day prior, no one shall call the ship by any other name but the name painted on the side of the hull.” he said to which we nodded in agreement and told him to go on. “Well, the name Enterprise is now on the side of the hull.” 

       If we did not take a space walk ourself and not see in bold, messy, red letters, we would have never believed anyone was so stupid or crazy. We spent the rest of the day examining log records, video records, check out logs, and all data that could be used to find to culprit. Yet what we found was that all video surveillance around the airlock used was tampered with and any video that would have existed to do such task was deleted from all records. This also goes for all data logs in the entire sector of the ship. We then tried to interview each crew member to see if there was any evidence on the person or exhaustion in their body. No evidence was found. We were more exhausted than any crew member. 

           This is insanity. We are unsure if we can make the entire journey before we, too, become just as mentally lost. We have sent out a new order today that the ship shall be renamed at the next port entry, assuming the name is not already in use. There was a loud cheer from the crew. What have we done to deserve this. We have been aboard many ships and captained a few in the past years but we may be force to retire after this expedition. We will retire for the night now and see what new torments will come tomorrow. End Captain’s Log

“Guys,” Beast Boy said, addressing the entire team as they sat in the common room. “I gotta go back home for a bit. Mento says they need me.”

The others glanced about among themselves.

“How long is a bit?"Robin asked. Beast Boy shrugged.

"Honestly, I don’t know. Mento said it could be a week, could be a month, could be more. I’m already packed and set to go tomorrow,” he said.

'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Scandal,' 'How to Get Away With Murder' Renewed | THR

The entire TGIT lineup will return with new seasons in the 2017-18 season.
ABC’s Channing Dungey is making her mark with some high-profile early renewals.

Shonda Rhimes-produced Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder have all been renewed for the 2017-18 broadcast season, the Disney-owned network announced Friday.

The early pickups — typically reserved for the most high-profile shows from important producers — will bring Grey’s into its 14th season, Scandal to its seventh and Murder to its fourth. The fate of fellow Rhimes-produced drama The Catch has not yet been announced as the series will not premiere until Murder ends its run this season.

The early pickups comes as Scandal’s return has helped solidify ABC’s Thursday night, which also marked the return of the network’s “TGIT” branding. Since Scandal’s return, the TGIT lineup has helped ABC win Thursday night for the past three weeks in the core adults 18-49 demographic. Scandal’s Jan. 26 return — which featured the show’s president-elect murdered as he was giving his acceptance speech — helped fuel ABC to season highs.

“Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder continue to keep viewers on the edge of their seats and wanting more. I’m thrilled to bring back these shows and the OMG moments that come with them,” Dungey said of the early pickups.

Grey’s, starring Ellen Pompeo,ranks as ABC’s No. 1 show among the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demo, an impressive feat for a show in its 13th season. It’s also a top 10 series in the demo and the No. 3 drama on all of broadcast. Its midseason return on Jan. 26 marked its most-watched telecast since September 2014.

Scandal, starring Kerry Washington and Tony Goldwyn, was bumped to midseason to accommodate star Washington’s second pregnancy. Rhimes has noted that the series will likely feature a reduced episode order as the drama likely heads toward its endgame. The prolific producer has also noted that Scandal isn’t a show that will have the same longevity as a show like Grey’s given the rate in which it burns through plot. (Scandal scripts are 20 pages longer than the typical drama.) The series will mark its 100th episode this season and Dungey told THR in January that they’ve talked about an endgame. “It’s really going to be up to Shonda because she’s the person who really knows where she wants the story to go and where it will play out. I have always said that I will take as much Scandal as she will give me. We are in a universe where she’s comfortable with slightly shorter seasons but my plan is Scandal is back next year and after that, it’ll be a conversation that we’ll have to have.”

Murder, starring Viola Davis and from exec producer and Shondaland disciple Pete Nowalk, returned last month to a season high and its best performance in a year — driven largely by its Scandal lead-in.

Without Scandal at 9 p.m., ABC limped until its return in the slot after opening the season with freshman drama Notorious in the coveted post-Grey’s slot. The drama, which had its order reduced, is not expected to return.

All three shows are produced by Shondaland and exec producer Betsy Beers. They’re from ABC’s sibling studio, ABC Studios, where Rhimes and Beers’ Shondaland banner is under a lucrative overall deal. The company also has Still Star-Crossed (which will change its title) due later this season as well as a drama pilot in contention.

For ABC, these are the first drama renewals for the 2017-18 broadcast season. They join comedy The Middle, produced by Warner Bros. Television, as having scored early pickups. ABC also has at least one new show ordered straight to series for next season in Marvel’s The Inhumans, which will debut in Imax theaters over Labor Day before launching in September with expanded episodes on ABC.

A few days ago I noticed my comp charger was frayed a bit at the end and being spotty to charge, and last night it just refused to charge charge at all. It might be time for me to get a new one, so it would be cool if someone commissioned me, to help with that. I also got some extra things I thought I could put off till next paycheck, but suddenly had to do in this one.

That combined with my job having way less hours means my bank account now has maybe 50 dollars (before I order a new charger) for the next two weeks. I don’t like that.

By the way, since I’m still attempting prepping things for con stuff, it might be a good time to commission things you would like to see. Didn’t get Rodan or Biollante in that last batch of kaiju? Well if you commission them I might be able to throw them into a sticker, miniprint, or button order next time I do one. Not only that but you’ll be essentially completely funding that particular item and like I said, money unexpectedly bottlenecked and is slightly tight right now.

about Nightwing: New Order, i hope people are aware of where is the root of the problem, hell, it is the same root with HYDRA Cap:

it’s because of THE OVERWHELMING REPUTATION OF INJUSTICE WHERE SUPERMAN - THE PANTHEON OF GOOD AND JUSTICE IS TURNED INTO A FREAKING DICTATOR AND PEOPLE ARE OKAY WITH THAT. THAT’S WHERE THE PROBLEM STARTS.

companies don’t suddenly go wow good guy turns bad trope is where it at in one beautiful sunny day they have Injustice as proof that that trope make money, that trope generates profit.

so from now on before you think of supporting Injustice, think long and hard about how one day it’s gonna be your fav next

The Game Plan

Pairing: Jungkook x reader (female specificed - IM SORRY I FORGOT TO MAKE IT GENDER NEUTRAL)

Genre: flufffff

Prompt: “You’ve betrayed me”

A/N: Helloooooo everyone! I’m back at it again with another scenario!! Sorry if they don’t seem like they’re realistic enough – I’m still new to this haha. BTW this lowkey sucks but maybe you’ll enjoy it?? At least, I hope you do!

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE IF YOU HAVE A REQUEST, ASK ME. I desperately need things to write about, so if you like my writing style, please leave me a request. I’ll write basically anything other than smut bc I honestly have no idea how to write that lol


      Your phone screen lit up, and his name appeared in bold letters right above the new text message he’d sent you. You discretely looked around the lecture hall and then hid your phone under the table to reply, stealing glances around the room, trying not to get caught with your phone out during class.

     “Yo, you still coming over tonight for game night with the boys?”

      You smiled, having almost forgotten that today was Friday, the one day where you could get together with your boyfriend and some of your friends to kick back and relax. After such a taxing and stressful week at college, you were definitely excited to go someplace other than your dorm room and do something other than homework. Sure, essays were tremendously fun and exhilarating, but hanging out with some of the people you cared about most had to be even better.

      “Yep, I’ll be there with pizza at 7. See you then, Kookie! Love ya J “, you replied, grinning widely to yourself. You almost didn’t notice the dead silence in the classroom until you suddenly felt very hot. Looking up, you felt everyone’s gaze on you, and you made direct eye contact with your professor, realizing you’d been caught red handed.

      “Ms. Y/L/N, care to rejoin the conversation?” your professor asked sarcastically, gaining a few chuckles from your classmates and causing your cheeks to blossom into a light shade of pink as she then continued on with her lecture. Sliding your phone into your bag, you tried to refocus your attention on the symbolism behind whatever object your professor was ranting on about, but your excitement caused your thoughts to shift to your plans for that night.


      You juggled the pizza boxes in your hand as you reached for the doorbell, struggling to press the button. Before you could, though, the door swung open and the pizza was swiftly taken from your arms as you were ushered inside. Jin had grabbed the boxes and set them down at the kitchen counter, opening one, taking a slice, and putting it on a paper plate. The boys greeted you enthusiastically, and you smiled at their child-like mannerisms.

     “Y/N!! You brought food!!” Tae exclaimed as he engulfed you in a quick hug before heading straight for the kitchen.

     “I’m happy you could make it!! Let’s play Mario Kart!” Hoseok said, greeting you quickly before disappearing to finish setting the game up.

     “Hey, I just got here! Slow down, save some for me Tae, and I swear, if I lose one more video game to you guys, I’m leaving,” you said, chuckling. Yoongi, Namjoon, and Jimin were grabbing snacks before trekking back to the living room to set up camp in front of the TV. Jin was getting drinks from the refrigerator, and Tae was stacking yet ANOTHER piece of pizza onto his plate. Surprisingly, you hadn’t seen your boyfriend yet. Usually, he was the first one to greet you when you walked in the door. Before you could go look for him, though, you felt a pair of arms wrap around your waist and he plled you close to him, lightly breathing into your ear, and sending shivers down your spine.

    “You ready to lose at Mario Kart? This champion can’t be stopped,” Jungkook teased, nudging your head with his own, obviously waiting for a heated reaction.

    “We’ll see. The king just may be dethroned tonight,” You replied, slipping from his grasp and looking back at him with a wicked smile on your face.

     He has no idea what’s coming! You thought to yourself, pleased. You, Jimin, and Hoseok had planned for tonight, and you guys were determined to wipe the smug look off of Jungkook’s face after he beat you all in every round played.

      You glanced over at Jimin, who subtly nodded and handed you a remote, before quickly grabbing Jungkook’s favored one and replacing the batteries. The plan was simple, really – remove the full batteries from the remote and replace them with halfway charged ones, so that the remote would die and FINALLY, someone else besides Jungkook would have the honor of being the victor.

      After grabbing a slice of pizza, you all kicked back on the couch, and the games began. Hoseok signaled at you to overtake him and Jimin on the track, and it wasn’t difficult since they were practically giving you second place. It was about then that Jungkook’s remote started to lose steam, so to speak, and he threw worried glances at the track on the screen upon realizing that you were gaining on him. You sat forward in your seat, licking your lips, anticipation building as you and Jungkook reached the final lap of the final race, neck and neck, heading for what could be a photo-finish.

      It was then that his remote battery died.

      He let out a wail as his remote disconnected, and you zoomed past him to finish in first, elevating your overall rank to second, and dropping him to third. You had finally beat the master competitor, the king among racers, Jeon Jungkook.

      Hoseok and Jimin jumped up, grabbed your hands, and celebrated as Jungkook looked on, suspicious and slightly irritated. Your celebrations slowly died out as you all avoided eye contact, his glare freezing you to your places.

      “What did you do?” He asked coldly, holding up his remote and gesturing at it. Jin and Namjoon excused themselves to the kitchen, knowing how seriously their maknae took competitions, and wanting to avoid any possible fallout over this sudden loss.

      “Well…” Jimin said, eyes darting between you and Hoseok, desperately thinking of a way around it. He knew that Jungkook wouldn’t be satisfied until he had beaten you guys at at least ten more games, and none of you could think of a way out of that situation. If it were up to Jungkook, you’d be up all night continuously losing just so he could prove who the real champion is.

     “C’mon, Kookie! It’s just one loss. You beat everyone else every other time!” You said cheerfully as you poked him in the arm playfully. His gaze turned to you, hurt.

    “My own girlfriend’s in on this? You’ve betrayed me, Y/N!” He said as he grabbed at his chest, his hand resting over his heart, and you rolled your eyes at his dramatics.

     “Jungkook, we know you’re the champion. You’re the best Mario Kart player, like ever. We just wanted to teach you a lesson, because you were getting too cocky,” You said, pinching his cheek as he swatted you away, slowly losing his grip on his act. He couldn’t help but grin at how cute you looked as you cooed over him, babying him to try and ease the effect of his loss on his ego.

     “That’s it! No more kisses for you until I win a game,” Jungkook threatened. He watched as your eyes widened with shock. You quickly turned to Hoseok and Jimin with an outstretched palm, wiggling your fingers expectantly. Jimin grumbled but begrudgingly obliged to your silent request and grabbed the remote you had used, took out the batteries, and placed them in the palm of your hand. You swiftly turned back to Jungkook who was biting his lip in an attempt to suppress his laughter at your sudden urgency as you pressed the batteries into his hand with two words.

      “Win. Now.”

       He grinned at you, then fixed Jimin and Hoseok with a challenge in his eyes. “You heard her. Sorry, hyungs, but I have to cream you now.”

     “You’re on,” Jimin and Hoseok replied in unison, determination in their eyes, and you all gathered around the TV again, rejoined by Jin and Namjoon, in order to begin a new round.

     You made sure to sit next to Jungkook this time, and stared at him expectantly after he won first place, waiting for your rightfully deserved kiss. He leaned in close and gave you a light peck, earning a groan from his friends, and a small smile from you.

     The rest of the night was spent laughing, throwing food, playing games, and enjoying your youth with no worry of the future. And as you listened to your friends’ laughter and gazed at your boyfriend’s bright and smiling face, you realized that you wouldn’t have it any other way.
