I love the CEO!Kara AU's. Like Kara stayed involved in sciences to feel closer to her parents on earth and now she has a tech company. Cause it's HC for me that Kara is extremely intelligent, even if you think about flying she needs to be able to calculate how much she needs to decelerate to not put massive holes in the ground when landing. But the ones I've found have made Kara OCC(like Lord's personality almost), but what if she was still just Sunny Danvers? That would be cooler to me.


Kara coming into work in the mornings and her assistant (she always used to go through assistants rather quickly because she works to find out what their passion is and then promotes them, but finally; this retired grandma decides she wants to go back to work so she becomes Kara’s assistant and they just really hit it off.) so she comes in and Sheila hands her her coffee and Kara asks about the grandkids. And Sheila totally knows that Kara is Supergirl - figured it out on the first day -  and she covers for her whenever she needs to leave suddenly and makes sure no one else gets suspicious.

All of her employees love her, but they have a healthy respect for her because they all know that she has a tendency to crush expensive office equipment when she gets upset, and if she can do that on ACCIDENT then they never want to see her tear into something on purpose.

So when Lena moves L-Corp to National City, she makes the rounds to all the major CEO’s and of course Kara is one of them and she expects Kara to be just like the rest - super judgy and snarky, but Kara is super nice and welcoming, and Lena just has like an instant crush because no one has ever just been nice to her before - but she’s still wary because surely Kara must have some ulterior motive. 

Then Kara shows up with lunch at Lena’s office a few days later and Lena is just like WTF? And Kara explains that she thought Lena might need a friend in this town because she’s read the papers and all the mean things they have to say about Lena. And then they just talk about tech stuff and Lena is kinda surprised that the most powerful CEO in National City has such a high level knowledge of proton deflectors and so when Kara invites her to game night, she accidentally agrees. Like, oops?

Not that she’s complaining.

Sabre, do you know any fluff stony? I swear I'll even comment them on español. Me acaban de romper el corazón :(

You know, I’ve gotten a few comments in different languages and I absolutely adore that.  I don’t know why, but it is just really cool that someone who speaks another language not only read my fic, but was moved enough to comment, even if they felt they could only express themselves in their native language.  So, you go on and comment in whatever language works for you!

Here’s some fluffy fic recs guaranteed to make you curl up into a ball of awwwww.  Of course, there are TONS of great fluff fics out there. I don’t read a whole lot of them, so you’ll probably see a lot of repeated names on this list, but you can’t go wrong with these authors.  Enjoy!


Hero Worship by @wordsplat:  It’s the morning of their honeymoon, and the absolute last thing either of them were expecting was Loki’s wedding gift. Steve is turned small, Tony is turned truthful, and everything is fluff and smut and rainbows.

Hashtag Finally by @wordsplat:   Tony doesn’t ever actually ask the Avengers to move into his house, steal his wifi, eat all his food, and become the best family he’s ever known. They do it anyway.

Meet Your Heroes by @wordsplat:  Tony gets rescued by a highly concerned, very handsy Captain America. This is confusing for a number of reasons.

Steve Rogers, Nurse McSexy by @wordsplat:  Tony does not handle his morphine well, and Steve has been pining way too long for this shit.

Of Frosting and Fireworks by @wordsplat:   It’s Steve birthday, but the last person he expects to remember that is Tony.

The Jar by @sineala:   The Avengers are ridiculously competitive people, and what starts out as a silly late-night team discussion quickly becomes a contest: their names. Not the code names – the nicknames. Who can go the longest without using them? They pledge to spend a week not nicknaming each other, and they’ll pay up every time they mess up. This hits Tony the hardest, and not just financially. Tony’s got a lot of nicknames for everyone, but most of all for Steve – and when Tony can’t use the names he’s already got, the names he uses reveal feelings he had no idea he had.

I’ll Give You Gifts Until  You Know My Name by @everybodyilovedies:  Mr. Stark is an extravagant gift-giver: he has the money for it, after all. As Iron Man, Tony has the opportunity to gift Steve even more presents that, while less expensive, are more heartfelt. Having a secret identity means Tony gets to have his cake and eat it too when it comes to showering Steve with presents.Until Steve starts developing feelings for his armored companion, and all the benefits of living a double life are turned on their head for Tony Stark.

Tony Stark Defense Squad (Steve’s Had Enough) by @orbingarrow:  The Avengers are called in by the government to “discuss” recent events, but it turns into a game of Let’s Bash Tony and Steve is so not cool with that.Or, the one where Steve Rogers makes himself the President of the Tony Stark Defense Squad. Matching t-shirts to come later.

Burn by @orbingarrow:  When Steve Rogers burns his dinner and sets off the sprinklers in the ROTC building, Tony Stark saves the day. Except this Tony Stark isn’t the famous son of a billionaire, he’s just a college Freshman on night maintenance for Work Study.Or is he?Featuring Phantom of the Opera references, a Human Centipede of office equipment, and lots and lots of fluff!

Stop, Hammertime by @orbingarrow:  When some asshole (*cough*Hammer*cough) puts out a hit on Tony, what are three translators, two security strategists and a Photoshop expert going to do about it?Turns out, a whole hell of a lot.

It Takes Time (series) by @shetlandowl: After a year-long sabbatical abroad, Tony returns to his post at the Department of Architecture at MIT in time to hear all the excitement over a hot new stud on Fury’s faculty roster, a Dr. Steve Rogers. As a genius and the only MIT alumnus in the faculty, he’s not used to being eclipsed by anyone, and he doesn’t take it all that well.   

Never Mind Where I Am by scribblywobblytimeylimey:  “Please tell me you just kissed me.”  Tony wakes up from his fall in New York heavily concussed. He may not know where he is, what just happened, or who the people around him are; but even without his memories, he’s willing to bet the man at his side is the most beautiful human being he’s ever laid eyes on.

This Has Happened Before by @kamaete:  Tony wakes up in the hospital and his first order of business is to flirt with his cute nurse. Steve isn’t a nurse, but he’s not quite Captain America right now either. Regardless, he is there when Tony wakes up.(Tony has temporary amnesia while in the hospital, Steve is de-serumed presumably in the same event that injured Tony.)

All of My Love is For You by @some-blue-jack:   The thing is, Tony totally knows that Steve’s interested.

Everything You Said I Ever by @some-blue-jack:   The first time Tony asks him out, Steve is … . well, appalled is as good a word as any.

Re(a)d All Over by @brandnewfashion and @musicalluna:  Contrary to popular belief, Tony Stark can blush.It just takes Steve getting drunk on some magical Asgardian mead for it to finally happen.

The Love Song of a Pair of Awkward Weirdos by @musicalluna:  Tony flirts with Steve and then the strangest possible thing happens:Steve starts to flirt back.

the reason you ruminate the shadowy past by Mizzy: So, Captain America effectively manages to cockblock Tony for a year.It’s not Steve’s fault. Well, actually, it is. But he was just proving a point - that if a superhero is gay, how can it be wrong? Steve just picked the wrong superhero to make the point with. Now America will think they’re dating - and Tony’s not going to be the guy to break Captain America’s heart.There’s only one way out. To save face, Steve and Tony have to become fake boyfriends. Steve thinks the “boyfriends” bit will be the hardest to act… but maybe it’s the “fake” part that will be the hardest act of all…

I Promise to Love It and Give It a Home by @tonystarkssnipples:   Steve takes Tony on a date to Build-A-Bear Workshop, where they adopt.

As You Wish by Heartithateyou:  Its the weekly game night for the Avengers, so what happens when a game of charades turns into Steve and Tony having to act out love scenes?

Fake Dating is Worth It for the Cake by Heartithateyou:  Tony convinces Steve to pretend to be his fiancee for the wedding cake samples.
Of course it doesn’t end the way he thinks it will.

(Actually, here is the link for Heartithateyou’s Stony works and you should just go read those when you need fluff!)

Getting Your Betty Crocker On by thehoyden:  He knows it’s not wartime anymore, but he can’t quite suppress the twinge of guilt he feels at measuring out two entire cups of white sugar.

I CANN, I do by @asparrowsfall:  Tony’s last name becomes a top level domain name. There are some unexpected consequences.Established relationship. So fluffy you’ll think you fell asleep in a cloud.

Worth It by AshitaNewssnoopy: When Steve said he wanted to court Tony, he assumed that he just meant that he wanted to take thing slow. And that was fine by Tony. No really, he could do this thing if that’s what Steve needed (shut up, Pepper; he so could). Because Steve was worth the wait.But then the gifts started coming and the letters popped up and there were chaste kisses and romance and…and what is even with this? Just when did his life turn into a romance novel?

Keep On Beating by @itsallavengers:  There were an awful lot of things Steve loved about Tony. But one thing in particular Steve could never get enough of was his heartbeat.

That Huge Damn Jacuzzi by @stark-spangled-lovers:  It stood in the very center of the room, large enough to host at least three people, raised a good three feet off the ground with stairs leading up and into the tub on each of the sides. Behind the Jacuzzi was another wall that separated the room; it spanned a good ten feet in length, also hosting mirrors.It was… well, to be honest, the damn Jacuzzi was giving Steve a bit of a headache.

Doughnuts and Officer Handsome by MystikSpiral:  Every morning, Tony went to his favorite doughnut shop. He’d order a few, a cup of coffee, and leisurely sit and eat, or rush out the door depending on whether or not he was running late for some meeting. Every morning, a tall blond caught his eyes, bulging muscles, looking as stern as ever while ordering a cup of coffee and a doughnut.


Remington POE Model 8 rifle

8.9x49mm/.35 Remington 15-round single stack removable box magazine, semi-automatic, long-recoil rotating bolt semi-automatic.

The POE police rifle was essentially a Model 8 with an extended magazine and foregrip, designed to bridge the firepower gap between law enforcement and criminals after the prohibition. After a number of successful purchases by police departments across the country, Remington cooperated with POE to bring these guns to factory standards.

Remington POE ‘Special Police’ Model 81 rifle

Manufactured by Remington Arms in Ilion, New york c.1936 - serial number 18769.
8.9x49mm/.35 Remington 15-round single stack removable box magazine, semi-automatic, long-recoil rotating bolt semi-automatic.

Additional features on the Model 81 Special Police, which was the fruit of the collaboration between Remington and POE, were a pair of swing swivel eyelets and profuse markings, including a hand-engraved buyer’s reference on the left side of the frame.

My ex-boss HATED fish

Two years ago, my firm welcomed a new partner to the organization.  This woman was a patronizing, condescending, and miserable piece of shit with whom I detested from the start - she was the type who woke up with the intention of fucking over as many people as possible and cried herself a river when she didn’t get her way - you know the type.

She blamed me for anything and everything from office equipment malfunctioning, to a smudge on the window, to her beautifully organized colored ink pens being out of order, to stealing her parking spot (I was working there WAY before her, and had it reserved until she had parking change the numbers.), etc, etc, etc.    Real fuckin’ bitch.

I was fortunate enough to know of a law office with an opening and was immediately offered a position, as I knew the managing partner.   Gave in me two weeks, and was happy as a clown.

On my last day there, I snuck in to her office at lunch and microwaved the whole damn Atlantic Ocean in her own private microwave - salmon, tilapia, mackerel, sardines, and anchovies in one big mixing bowl.  Not a large amount as I don’t like to waste food, but just enough to create an essence of a fish market. The smell was soon overwhelming and I felt like a Goddess.  I then closed her door, walked out of the office, and ended my last day of work at 1 PM.

When she first started, I heard her telling our receptionist that she HATED fish and that even the faintest smell made her throw up.

Fuck you, Christina. ( (Don’t worry - her office was in a separate space directly across from the rest of the building and I did not put my co-workers through any of that.  The lay out is hard to describe, but it was her and her only office.))

Remington POE Model 8 rifle

Manufactured by Peace Officer Equipment co. in St.Joseph, Montana c.1935-1936.
8.9x49mm/.35 Remington 15-round single stack removable box magazine, long-recoil rotating bolt semi-automatic, Thompson submachine gun pistol grip.

POE made a few modifications to the Remington Model 8 rifle to make it into a serious display of firepower, capable of dealing with the car-driving machine gun-toting gangsters of the 30′s.
The process was picked up by Remington themselves due to its success with law enforcement agencies.

As I Was Saying

Triple H/OC. For Anon: Reader wants Thick Cock Daddy Hunter off of his important call, and she wants him off of it now. When he makes her wait even after she voices this opinion, she makes him watch her touch herself. She refuses to stop touching him and makes it harder and harder for him to sound as though he’s not about to cum. When that call ends, another comes, and he has her answer it, giving her a taste of her own medicine until she’s learned her lesson about misbehaving when it comes to business - then it’s all dedicated pleasure.

Aug 7th:

So where I am working right now is doing a very nice ergonomic office equipment giveaway… But because I am a skeptical peasant…

Aug 10th:

Out of curiosity, I checked how much the equipment I got from the giveaway worth.

…And it continues.


Commodorians Part 1

This was one of the three mega exhibits for the 40th anniversary of the big three appliance computers launched in 1977.   Anthony Becker, Jeffrey Brace, Chris Fala, Todd George (captain), & Bill Winters combined their skills, collection, and love for Commodore equipment to showcase the PET-2001′s family tree.

Before Commodore Business Machines was making computers, they were making office equipment, namely typewriters.  They got into the game of manufacturing adding machines, followed by calculators which were constantly decreasing in size while improving their capabilities.  During the calculator wars, Texas Instruments had an upper hand in the market by being a main source of calculator integrated circuits.  In an attempt to subvert TI’s control, Commodore purchased MOS Technology so they could produce their own semiconductors in house. 

It just so happened that MOS had a microprocessor, the now famous 6502, which they were using in the KIM-1 trainer./demonstrator. Commodore continued selling the KIM-1 with their own branding, and one was on display acting as a clock.

However, the 6502 really shined in their first home computer, the PET-2001, available initially in an 8K version and a short lived 4K version.  The PET was unique compared to its contemporary appliance home computers (the Apple II and TRS-80 Model I) in that it included a monitor and tape drive all in the same chassis.  You’ll also note that the case of the 2001 is made from metal, not plastic like the competition.  In true Commodore fashion, this was a money saving move – they re-purposed their file cabinet manufacturing arm to make cases for the PET line resulting in very sturdy cases.  The keyboards were re-purposed from cash registers, resulting in an incredibly clunky and uncomfortable design that didn’t last long. 

I made it a personal mission to sit down at the PET-2001-8, just as I had at my first VCF East a decade ago, and program something.  I tweaked the existing random character generator program on screen to use different PETSCII graphics than the demonstrator they had set up.  This is an early blue bezel model, which makes up for the terrible chiclet keyboard.

The PET-2001 was succeeded by the 4000 and 8000 series machines, boasting larger screen options, a proper full travel QWERTY keyboard, more memory, better external interfaces, and more advanced versions of Microsoft BASIC.  The IEEE-488 interface was fully implemented by this point, and was used with larger storage mediums like the 4040 and 8050 dual floppy drives, and rare CBM D9090 hard disk drive.  The real oddity here is the very late SFD1001 drive, which uses the IEEE-488 parallel interface, but crams it into the case of a later 1541 drive more synonymous with the C64.

Sidney Crosby - The Annoucement

Hey could I get a telling your husband sidney crosby youre pregnant please!

A/N I had soo much fun writing this.  I was grinning the whole time.  I hope you find it as cute as i do.

Originally posted by ehghtyseven

You tipped toed into the locker room, praying that you made it over to hide behind Geno and Fleury, before your husband noticed you were there.  They were happy to help you surprise Sid, especially since it involved a series of pranks.  Once you were hidden from view you gave Kris letang a thumb up to start the first part.  

Kris walked over to Sid, asking him for some advice on one timers.  Kris didn’t really need Sid’s advice it was just a way to distract him, and it worked.  Sid, not paying attention because being the captain he normally didn’t get pranked, pulled down his helmet without noticing the cup that was underneath it.  Blue glitter rained down on him, going EVERYWHERE. All over his stall, his jersey, his hair.  You had to bite down hard on your bottom lip to not burst out laughing at the look of death he gave Kris.  You felt horrible for Kris but you had a feeling it would all work out at the end.  Not having time to do anything about the glitter Sid stomped out of the locker room and to the ice for practice with Kris following close behind.  Once it was clear that Sid wouldn’t becoming back and the coast was clear Geno and Marc went to make sure Sid wasn’t being too harsh on Kris during practice.

Once everyone was gone from the room, you poked your head into Dana, the equipment manager’s office to get started on the final part of the plan.  

A little while later, when you and Dana were done setting up the locker room, you grabbed a bag of pucks and headed out to the bench.  When practice was winding down, Geno pretending to come over and get a drink, grabbed the bag of pucks and headed over to where Sid was.  

“who you think better at slap shot, me or you” Geno challenged Sid.  The rest of the team knowing what was going on started razzing Sid, till he had no choice but to participate in Geno’s challenge.  Dumping the bag of pucks he had gotten from you on the blue line, Geno began to line them up.  “You first” Geno said pointing at Sid.  

Sid pulled back his hockey stick and connected to the puck with force.  As soon as his stick connected the puck blew up in a puff of blue powder.  “What the Hell” you heard him curse. While Geno said “must be bad puck. Try again.”  Once again when Sid’s stick connected with the puck it blew up in a puff of blue powder.  Thinking it was another prank, Sid refused to do any more.

“If you think I’m cleaning this up your nuts” Sid glowered at Geno. Moving quickly off the bench, you headed back to the locker room, to wait for Sid.  Looking around one last time to make sure everything was just so.  You nodded to Cath standing in the corner with a camera waiting to take pictures  of the whole thing.  You sat off to the side just waiting.  

Soon enough you heard Sid’s voice coming closer along with Geno’s.  “I don’t know what wrong with puck.” Geno asserted as he and Sid stepped into the locker room.  Sid just shook his head at Geno and headed to his locker.  

About half way there he stopped dead.  “What the Hell?” Sid cursed again.  All his stuff had been taken out of his locker/stall.  The tiniest pair of skates were hanging were hanging on the pegs, A tiny jersey that said Crosby on the back was hanging from a hanger in the middle and the name plate had been replaced with one that said coming soon 2018.  Sid just stood there gapping at it.  

“Congratulations Daddy” you announced coming up beside him.  

“Wait, all this was you? The blue glitter, the pucks exploding into blue powder?” He questioned.

“Yup” you grinned.  Then you saw as it really sank in.  

“OH MY God! I’m going to be a DAD!” He shouted. Suddenly you were being swept off your feet and twirled around.  As soon as you were back on your feet with his hands on your waist there was a roar from the back of the locker room where all of his teammates were clapping and hollering for him.  All too soon they were crowding you and Sid in a giant smelly group hug.

It was a late evening when he found himself stumbling through a crowded dance floor where beer was flying through the air, it seemed, and the entire place reeked of smoke and weed, mixed with a tangy odour of vomit coming from somewhere in the corner.

All in all, the place was disgusting and made Min YoonGi act extra cautious, hovering his hand over the gun on his waist. How the fuck was he supposed to even find some clients in this dumpster?

Releasing a heavy sigh, YoonGi slowly tracked to the bar, all the while throwing a careful glance over the gathered audience, trying to seek out some rich looking bastards- but there was none. Not this time, anyway.
