asking for lidge - please wonderful bean <3 pidge surprising lance on a date and he is fully wooed and actually gets emotional at the end XD
Hope it’s okay I combined your prompts! I had a really good idea and I wanted to roll with it! <3 Featuring transgirl Pidge, because you said transition and I’m kind of a sucker for some transgirl Pidge.
“You know I think the new hair absolutely suits you,” Allura runs the brush through her girlfriend’s hair, making sure to be gentle on her sensitive scalp, “Truly.”
Katie, in truth, was horribly sensitive about it. It was a step, to maybe feeling more comfortable in her body. She didn’t need the long hair to be a girl. But the day she’d gone to the salon and chopped it off…it left her feeling exposed. Vulnerable. What would they think? What would everyone think? What would Lance think?
“She’s panicking,” Keith tossed the little stress ball at his girlfriend’s back, “What are you freaking out about?”
“I…it’s nothing,” It was a bad lie, Katie knew that. Allura knew that. Keith definitely knew that.
Keith rolled his eyes, “Okay sure. How about the truth now?”
“Just…Lance has been in Cuba for the last couple of months dealing with his dad’s death and everything. I’m…worried he won’t like me anymore. Won’t like the hair won’t like…the everything.”
Allura huffed and placed the glittering silver headband in her hair, “Hardly. If he says something rude about it I’m sure Hunk or Shiro would say something. It doesn’t matter how you present yourself. We all love you, more than anything, exactly as you are. And I am sure he will think so as well.”
There was a knock at the front door, followed by the sounds of Hunk sobbing. No doubt Lance was finally home. Katie took a deep breath, pulling at the hem of her dress. Green, pretty, something that Allura and Hunk had sewn just for her. Just for today.
Lance was carried in through the bedroom door by Shiro, lounging across his arms as he rambled on about someone on the plane, “And then they started showing me all these pictures of bears! I don’t care about bears Shi-oh…oh wow. Katie you um…Wanna put me down?”
Katherine Elizabeth Holt looked absolutely stunning. He reached out, running a hand gently through her golden curls, “You cut it. I…I like it. It fits your face nicely.”
“I’m not sure if I trust someone with those eyebrows to tell me what fits my face, but I’ll take it as a compliment.” She grinned up at him, as cheeky as always.
It was a simple date. Just a trip to the movies where they planned on seeing the newest cheesy horror film. Lance’s jet lag was having other plans. About halfway into the film he had fallen asleep on her shoulder, gripping her hand tightly. It was endearing, to say the least. He had awoken near the end, demanding that he take her to ice cream to apologize for ruining the movie with his snoring. After some convincing, she agreed. And that’s where they were now, curled up together in a booth at an old fashioned ice cream shop.
“How are things back home? I know…I know it’s got to be rough. When we buried my dad…yeah it wasn’t fun,” She’s trying not to be so sentimental, but her boyfriend’s seemed a little sad. Lost.
“Not…not good,” he breaks down his walls, honest and open and completely vulnerable for her, “I’m sorry this should be about you not me. You look amazing by the way, have I told you that? I think I told you that.”
The compliment goes right to her cheeks, flushing her a brilliant red.
“If you don’t want to talk about it…it’s okay. But I made you something,” she reaches inside the sewn in pocket, pulling out a long necklace with a brilliant blue stone on the end of it, “I made…I made one for everyone. To say thank you for supporting me. It means a lot…”
He’s crying in an instant, arms wrapping tight around her. She feels suffocated with warmth, with emotion. But it’s Lance so it’s nice. it’s weirdly comforting even as his tears soak her new dress.
“I love you…” It’s a quiet whisper as his sobs die down, clutching the necklace close.
It’s her turn to cry now, cupping his face and peppering every freckle on his skin with kisses. “I love you too.”
Cool hope ya’ll are good with the novel of a prompt I wrote you <3

Your eyes looked over your outfit for the tenth time. It was your favorite little black dress with the perfect cap sleeves. The skirt flared out from your waist while the hem reached the middle of your thigh. You paired it with beige heels, hoping you weren’t planning on walking very far. Your stomach continued to flip as you looked over your outfit.
“You look beautiful Miss.” Mindy called from the hallway, already knowing what you were thinking. You chuckled a little.
“Where’s my favorite granddaughter?” Nan called from the other room. You smiled, grabbing your clutch, and walking into the other room to show your outfit off. Your smile grew when your grandmother continued her praises. “My dear Y/N. Are you for pretty? You look beautiful but leave your hair down. You never show off your beautiful locks. You would know that if you went on more dates” She smiled as you rolled your eyes.
“I love you.” You walked over to kiss her cheek again.
“I know. I’m your favorite.” She cheekily remarked. Her eyes lit up as the doorbell rang. “You want me to open the door?” Her eyebrow cocked up as she smirked.
“Ha! Not a chance. This is already weird enough.” You turned to walked towards the door.
“Does it help that we never slept together?” She called after you.
“God! No, Nan! That doesn’t help at all.” You pinch the bridge of your nose as you chuckled a little. There is absolutely no filter on that woman, you thought to yourself as you opened the door.
“Hi!” Your voice was a little higher than you wanted.
“Hey! Wow!” His eyes trailed up and down your figure. “You’re gorgeous!” But there he was, in all his glory. He was wearing a dark long sleeve button up that fell a little tight across his chest. There was not enough courage in the world for you to look down at his pants. Damn, did he look good. It was the big band swing music coming from upstairs that brought you out of your thoughts. You immediately recognized the song, groaning at the reference. You rolled your head back, letting out a heavy sigh as Bucky started laughing.
“Go get ‘em Sarge!” You heard your grandmother call out from upstairs.
“Jesus, Nan!” You yelled back as you pushed him out of the doorway and onto the stoop. “I am so sorry. I don’t normally date.” Your hands were still on his chest as he grabbed them to pull you towards the car.
“She sounds a little excited?” He joked as he opened the car door. You let out another groan.
“Unfortunately, but she does have great taste in music.” You chuckled, nervously straightening out your skirt. “You sure did have great music back in your day.” You winked at him. The flirting had began.
“Is that an old man joke again?” He smirked as he entered the car.
“You know it.” You crossed your legs, allowing your skirt to rise up your thigh. It was quick but you could have sworn he licked his lips. “So, Sergeant Barnes,” you emphasized his rank. “Where is this place you wouldn’t tell me about?” A smile grew over his face as he thought about telling you.
“Would it be cheesy to go to a pizza shop? A good, old fashion Brooklyn pizza shop?” He looked over at you.
“Well, as long as we don’t get cheese it won’t be too cheesy.” You tried to fake concern in your voice until you couldn’t handle it. He groaned as you started chuckling at your horrible joke. “If you can’t handle my jokes, we haven’t left yet?” You flashed him a smirk but he grabbed your hand.
“You’re not going anywhere, beautiful!” He was smirking now as he turned on the car to take you away.
The drive to the pizza shop was short but you continued with your terrible pizza jokes. He would groan but eventually chuckle, even flash a smirk that made your heart flutter. He was a gentleman in everything he did. When the car was parked, he ran over to your side of the car to open your door, offering his hand to help you out, then resting it on the small of your back. It had been so long since you had dated or even had a relationship. Your stomach continued to do flips as he opened the door. The shop was quaint and homely feeling as you sat in a booth towards the back. His back towards the corner, a habit you noticed, so he could see the entire shop. The waiter was quick to take your order of pepperoni pizza and two beers but his soon absence caused you to feel nervous. He looked perfect in the dim lighting. His cheek and jaw structure looked as sharp as a scalpel. You tried to look around the shop but he could already feel you staring. He was staring too.
“So, what’s the hardest thing about coming back to Brooklyn?” You questioned, deciding to start the ever awkward first date questions.
“Ugh!” He huffed. “Why did Coney Island have to change?” He exclaimed, trying to fake exasperation, causing you to laugh.
“Well, you’ll have to take me some day to show me what it was like for you.” You teased but his face brightened.
“I’d love to, doll!” He exclaimed, grabbing your hand. You could feel your heart stop. You awkwardly chuckled back at him. Your stomach flipped again as his smile reached his eyes, tiny lines crinkled his face. His touch was like fire on your skin as you could feel any twitch or movement had made. You tighten your grip as you laced your fingers around his, blushing at your boldness.
“This is nice.” Your eyes met his and he was smitten. He looked at you like you were the only one in the room. “But why does an Avenger want to date an ordinary girl like me?” You teased, winking at him as he stared at you in confusion. He laughed again, eyes crinkling, as you smirked.
“Well, ordinary isn’t the word I would use. I haven’t found anyone else other than Steve Rogers that gets up as early as you do to run.” He teased right back. “But to be honest, it’s nice to get away from the craziness of avenging.” His eyes looked back at you, making you smile again. You were getting giddy under his stare and touch. “But what’s your story, sweet cheeks?” He winked at his new pet name.
“Oh, ha! Not as crazy as avenging but it’s not easy. I’m an ER nurse.” His eyes went wide, not expecting this answer from you. “Yeah, so I’ve got some great stories and I could save your life too.” You smirked, trying to sound cocky again.
“Wow! Beautiful and smart, and you sure you’re single?” No matter how much you teased or faked confidence, there was no chance of controlling this date. You were falling, and fast.
“I normally don’t have time or like to leave Nan at home…” You trailed off.
“You two are close.” He smiled sweetly.
“Well, she raised me. I went into nursing because of her. Buuuuuut” you elongated the word and trying to change the subject as fast as you could when the pizza and beers arrived, “Didn’t have pizza this good back then, did they?” You tried to be as lighthearted as you could but you did make his chuckle again.
“Hilarious.” You opened your mouth to retort his sarcasm but you heard your name from behind you.
“Oh my god! Y/N? Is that you?” You mouthed the word ‘fuck’ as you looked up at Bucky.
“Hi, Lana. How are you?” You turned around to try and fake a smile. The inside of your mouth ran raw as you started to chew on the inside of your cheek. She was tall, short hem of her skirt barely covering her ass, as she walked towards your table.
“I’m great! Just getting Kyle’s favorite pizza! He treats me so well I just have to spoil him too!” She was waggling her hands as she spoke and it hit you, that giant goddamn rock. You faked an interested face as she continued. “Oh! I am so sorry, Y/N! Is this awkward? I mean, me being here, engaged and everything.” Boom, that didn’t take long.
“No, it’s fine but I think your pizza is ready. Have a good night!” You waved her off as she waved back with her left hand. You turned around in a huff and shot Bucky a ‘I’m sorry’ look.
“She’s gone.” Bucky mumbled and you let your face fall.
“Wow! How awkward can I make this date?” As you reached for your beer. “I’m going to need another one.” Bucky chuckled, waving the waiter over for another.
“So, let me guess. Annoying bitch that stole one of your dumbass boyfriends?” You faked surprise at his answer.
“Right-o!” You said as the waiter handed you another bottle. “Thank you.”
“He must have been blind and stupid.” You probably laughed a little hard then you should have but he was trying to make you feel better.
“That’s cute, Sarge, but how could you come to that conclusion? We’ve only known each other for a day?” You questioned teasingly.
“Let’s just say I have a feeling.”
The rest of the evening was still awkward but Bucky was sweet. He was a gentleman as you left the restaurant. His eyes never left you, as you walked to the car in front of him. You stumbled a little on the concrete but his arm quickly snaked around your waist. A small gasp escaped when he caught you.
“Do you always sweep women off their feet like this?” Your eyes connected to his and your hands laid across his chest. He gave you another eye-crinkling smile as you stared into his beautiful blue eyes. God, he was breath-taking, making the nagging voice in your mind continue as it did all evening. Why was he interested in you?
“Only you, doll.” Your lips were pressed tight, trying not to giggle or smile too brightly. “Now, let’s get you home.” The two of you continued to walk towards the car but his arm never left your waist.
When you reached your apartment, he parked to walk you up to the door, offering his hand again as you got out of the car.
“Well, Sarge, I had a wonderful night.” You were blushing, contemplating whether to kiss him or not.
“Y/N, I’d like to take you out again.” You flashed a big smile.
“I would love that.”
“Good.” You bit your bottom lip as he looked down at your hands, still connected. You mustered all your courage to kiss his cheek, causing him to look at you in shock. “Call me.” Then you turned and entered the apartment before you could have a chance to continue.
on a Tuesday night. She is already about to lock down her coffee
bar, when he appears at the door and gently knocks to get inside
while she is already fumbling with the keys standing on the other
side of the old fashioned shop door. Would he have been a random
stranger she’d right away decline to let him in. But he’s kind of a
regular. Dropping by now and then for a coffee or three. Occasionally
he wants it boozed up, but mostly just strong and black. And usually he
comes during day time. She opens back the door a little.
He greets. “Got a coffee for me?” Straight to the point. Not
begging and with no further apologies for turning up right at closing
time. It’s none of her business that he’s a sleepless wreck. Seeing
Armando and so many others die whenever he lays down to find some
rest. He only wants a coffee. And some company that knows nothing of
how fucked up he really is.
“Insomnia will not get better
over coffee.” She tries for a joke but only earns herself a weak
“Will you let me in or do I have to go do McDonalds?”
he does not even try for puppy eyes because he’s deadly tired and
honestly does not care where he gets what he wants.
won’t get whiskey with your coffee at McDonalds. Besides, you look
like shit.” She holds the door open and he slips in.
you.” He grumbles but there is the hint of a smile in his voice. He
knows she’s right. Deep cover sucks. Hanging out with Nazis sucks.
Not knowing if he, for once, is on his own or being followed,
watched, spied back on and analyzed - sucks more than anything
The bar is almost dark, only a few spots behind the
counter give some dim shadowy light and he walks after her to lean
onto the counter. Watching her power up the espresso machine again
just for him. While the water heats up, she grabs under the bar and
grabs a bottle to put on the counter. Whiskey. A good one. Two
“Be my guest.” she offers with a calm
“Too generous, not good for business.” He mumbles,
but grabs the bottle and fills both glasses three fingers high
“But good for karma.” She smiles while she turns
away to fix his coffee.
His answer is a snort.
She shrugs, puts down the coffee next to his
whiskey and leans onto the counter, not realizing how she’s mirroring
him, hunched over, arms crossed, resting on the aged wooden surface.
“So are you the talking type? Or the broody one?” She asks
after a long moment of silence and he looks up.
you care?” Pouring down the whiskey in one go, instant refill.
Taking a bit more time with the coffee, wrapping his long fingers
around the mug as if he needs the warmth.
“I already told
you.” Now a tiny smile curled her lips and it felt like a little
warm spot in a snow storm to him. “You’re my guest. And you look
like shit. Two good reasons to care.”
“A true caretaker.”
The sarcasm drips from his words but she shrugs again.
some kind of a helper’s syndrome I assume.“ She chuckles. ”That’s
why I have a bar…”
She takes the opportunity to take a
closer look: Tall, athletic, probably in his early forties but in
excellent shape. Hints of salt and pepper in his short hair and
beard. Once he might have been dark brown, maybe with some copper
reflexes. A sharp nose and thin determined lips make his features
even more interesting. Blue bomber jacket over some kind of
lumberjack shirt. Odd choices but it suits him in some very
appealing, raw way. The most distinguishing feature are his
stunning blue eyes. Tired eyes. Sad eyes. But
nevertheless beautiful. She suddenly becomes aware that this
beautiful eyes are now looking back at her. Rather intensely to be
honest. ’Shit’! He clearly has realized that she’s checking him out. She grabs her own whiskey. Displacement activity
for she has no idea what else to do in her embarrassment.
almost can’t believe it. Why would a woman look at him like she just
does? While he’s still in this horrendous… costume. Blending
in is important but in all his years with the firm
this is – by far – the one fake identity that disgusts him the
most. Feeling constantly some kind of dirty not even in a
metaphorical way. Maybe his late night barista here is one of them?
Having a thing for Aryan thugs?
No, most unlikely. He’d been here a few times before and this
is definitely not a place where Neonazis meet if not for bashing the
place. Which basically was the reason he’d come here once in a while.
Like some weird kind of… cleansing
space for his sanity.
“What was I saying?” She blushes
with an embarrassed grin and her fingers are trailing along the rim
of her glass because she does not know what else to do with them
while she drowns in his eyes. His sad blue eyes.
“I have no
idea.” Now he smiles. The first real one in days. The air around
them suddenly seems to hum from electricity and he realizes that –
the first time in ages – there is no reason
for doing this. No purpose behind other than wanting
it. Enjoying it to talk and tease. To… flirt?
she hitting on him? Or encouraging him
to flirt with her? He is scanning signals. It’s coming natural
because it’s what he’s used to do. And at least finally something he
is good at. Body language. The tone of her voice, the subtext and
what she is saying in the first place.
you trusting a little too easily?” He asks in a low growling voice.
Like he wants to scare her off by gruff behavior. Or to protect
himself? Because this little game is already way too comforting. Too
much fun. He haven’t had fun in such a fucking long time. “You
don’t even know my name.”
what’s your name then?” She repeats with raised eyebrows and a
mocking tone. As if she doesn’t even care.
comes naturally. Right now he is
Trevor. Must be, because it’s basically his life insurance. No way he
can falter and expect to survive it.
Not even a question and he does not bother for more than a nod.
tells him her name and he saves it among the big pile of daily
information classified as not crucial.
She’s just the right person at the right time. No clue whether she
still will be tomorrow or if she’ll just fade from his memory like so
many before. Actually he does not care. Feeling oddly at peace, and
if only for a few hours. He can’t afford knowing people who are
not in the business.
Too dangerous. But he does not want to get to know
her, anyway. And neither does she. Obviously.
assume you’d be more… curious?” He asks over the rim of his glass
with that slight smile women kept telling him was kind of attractive
when he flashed it at them.
“Why would I?” Again she is
mirroring him by taking up her glass, looking back at him. Sipping
and never leaving his eyes. He is almost certain she’s not
consciously trailing through her hair and slightly exposing her neck
when she tilts her head just a tiny bit while inspecting him with a
daringly mocking grin. “You’d probably lie to me anyway so why
bother? We’re not getting married after all.”
laughter sounds hoarse, like an ability abandoned for far too long.
“No we won’t. But what are you up to anyway?” He asks. They
haven’t touched so far other than with eyes and it gives the
situation some odd kind of intimacy he does not understand. Sitting
in an already closed bar talking terms on how to hook up tonight.
Why even negotiating? Why not taking her hand, leading her to the
back room and pinning her against the wall? Would be the easy way
out. Fast relief and fast get out. Instead? He reaches over the
table and grabs her fucking hand. Shit!
she’s surprised she does not show it. And she does not flinch
either. “We’re adults, Trevor. I’ll not pretend I’ve never done
something like this before and you won’t either. No strings attached.
No questions. No promises. Just… tonight.”
looks at his watch, calculates. He won’t have to show up at the Nazi
place until late morning and no one will care whether he changed
clothes or not or actually looked as if he’d been up all night.
place.” This is not debatable. He won’t bring her to his apartment.
Rather he’ll consider taking a room for the night if she objects but
no one apart from business shall know where and how he lives. Not to
mention all the case material pinned to the cold walls and the
unpacked boxes all around. No, taking her home is no option. May
she assume he might have a wife and children at home and therefor
insisting, he does not care.
“Very well.” She calmly
agrees, softly taking her hand back from his. “Let me shut down
everything then we’ll be on our way.
