Alcohol and food always meant trouble at the Stark Tower, especially on Fridays when everyone had had enough of an extenuating week of researching and short missions. The team wanted to have a party; one like the old times. One in which someone ended up naked or going at it with another team member.

Tony and Natasha had it all set up; they had prepared everything from Monday that week until they realized what was missing. They weren’t the kind of people who put much thought into their feelings, and they didn’t like when others pondered too long about the dos and don’ts regarding other people. (Y/N) was one of those.

In endless conversations, she had spoken to both of them about what she felt for the speedster, Pietro Maximoff and how confused she was because she wasn’t sure if his behavior towards her was a sign of what he felt.

And Pietro was another boring conversation they hated to have, although it wasn’t very often that the Sokovian decided to open up his heart with other person than his sister, who was troubled enough to feel something for a “man” who was not really aware of what feelings were, but she went along with it, unlike her brother.

Night time had arrived, and the Avengers had a few drinks on them; they were all relaxed thanks to the countless beers and shots available. Natasha broke the laughter with a few simple words.

“Shall we play a game?” The redhead smiled wickedly. The team cheered up, but little did they know what her idea was. “I was thinking that maybe we could play 7 minutes in heaven?”

“How old are you, Romanoff?” Clint teased. She glared at him.

“I say we could use the fun.” Tony backed Nat. “Besides, everyone loves a hook up.”

The discussion didn’t last long, and while Natasha and Tony went to set up the papers, Wanda came closer to both of them. She helped them quietly until she saw what they were up to. There were lots of papers with Pietro’s and (Y/N)’s name and it didn’t take long for her to realize their true intentions.

“You know;” she said as she folded the papers; “if you want to set my brother and (Y/N) up, you could’ve asked instead of killing so many trees.” Her voice was calmed, but it still had a taint of a silly giggle in it. She smiled at them as her eyes turned red and the threads of energy moved the papers to the hats.

“So them being together doesn’t bother you?” Natasha asked, cocking an eyebrow in disbelief. “I mean, your face isn’t very cheerful when they’re together. No offense, but it looks like you truly hate them.”

“Not taken,” the brunette woman giggled, “but it’s the problem with my face, Pietro says the same thing. Anyway—“she shook her head—“do you want the help or not?” The older avengers nodded, and now the three were onto something.

The first ones to go were Steve and Natasha, and by the flush on her cheeks, she surely received something good. Steve licked his lips lusciously and sat as if nothing ever happened. Then, it was Pietro’s turn to draw a paper. Wanda tricked the hat and when Pietro unfolded the cutout, it was (Y/N)’s name on it. Tony, Natasha and the witch shared a meaningful look and tried not to laugh at the terrible coincidence.

(Y/N) took Pietro’s hand and seductively looked at him; he bit his bottom lip and followed her to the closet. She turned on the lights inside it and sat on the ottoman that Tony kept. They stayed in silence, stealing looks from one another and turning their heads away when their eyes met. (Y/N) groaned and threw her head back onto the wall.

“Do we use this time to make out or we’re gonna keep quiet?” Pietro teased from the other side of the closet.

“I don’t know,” (Y/N) shrugged, “but now that you mention it… can we have a little talk?” He nodded a silent reply. “Do you like me? I mean, are you trying to flirt with me because you like me or because you wanna fuck me?”

“Both.” He snickered. “Haven’t I been explicit?”

“Not really.” (Y/N) shook her head. “And it’s been awfully confusing, Piet.” She sighed deeply. “I don’t wanna be another one of your hook ups, I believe I deserve more than that.”

Pietro whooshed to (Y/N)’s position and placed his hands on both sides of her body. She tensed immediately when the speedster’s lips were too close to hers. Inside her chest, her heart beat like crazy and she couldn’t stop looking up to those bright blue eyes that were almost intimidating. His hot breath brushed her face and in a split second, his mouth molded with hers in a perfect kiss.

(Y/N) cupped his face in her hands and Pietro quickly, and effortlessly, picked her up and he sat on the ottoman instead. She straddled his lap and gently rocked her hips to get more friction. Pietro’s lips parted from (Y/N)’s and he kissed down her jawline and stopped on her pulse point to suck a bruise.

Her heart was beating so fast that Pietro could feel its rhythm under his lips. She moaned softly when his teeth sunk on her skin and his strong hands played with the hem of her top, but before they could get any more excited, the doors were flew open with several heads peering inside. The two were cut off by a group of nosy avengers, whose faces showed how happy they were.

“Those weren’t 7 minutes.” (Y/N) shook her head in annoyance.

“Printsessa,” Pietro whispered to her hear softly, “I believe we spent two or threw just looking at each other and talking.” Then, he placed a soft kiss on her cheek and helped her up again.

They left the closet holding hands while the most eager ones, Natasha, Tony and Wanda, cheered up on them and their new accomplishment.

Paper Sissel! Both in corporeal and ghost color schemes! Created by me in 3 to 4 hours.

For a while I had forgotten that Sissel had a ghost color palette. I don’t think we see it in game. It is only on the box art, I think.

And I was also playing around with a design that could be potentially used on a playing card. I really love how it turned out! :D

I'm going through a fucking awful time and also have bipolar disorder and 1 Page At a Time is basically the only thing keeping me creatively active through all this. THANK YOU for keeping me from rotting away. Much love and thanks.

<3 <3 <3 <3 

remember that 1 page at a time is literally just a paper trick it’s a half empty book it only has any power or value if you give it power and value so fill it up with all the shit you’re feeling and then when you’re through this AND YOU WILL GET THROUGH IT I MEAN THERE IS ALWAYS SOME SHIT AND IT’S NOT LIKE, OK POOF YOU ARE BETTER CONGRATS THE END but when you are through this particular rough patch you will be able to look back and remember those days when you kind of just wanted to die BUT YOU DIDN’T and now look how far you’ve come

anyway if it makes you feel in any way better know that every time you use the book you are leaving a tiny but perceptible mark on my own actual soul and that over time it maybe forms like a star or a heart or some other nice shape and sometimes i feel extremely lost and unsure but all those little marks remind me that even if at the end of my life 1 page at a time turns out to have been the most significant thing i contributed to the world, it was worth it and good enough and i’ve made an okay thing and i helped another living person and that is all that really matters.

“My original plan was to write a paper about trick riding. I figured my most memorable moment was the time I was Roman riding at a rodeo. At the last minute I decided to take a difficult jump, and I totally nailed it. But then I realized that it wasn’t the Roman riding or the jump that made that moment memorable. It was the people watching. And I’m not talking about the random people sitting in the crowd. I’m talking about my people. My mom, dad, sister, uncle, grandparents, and great-grandparents. So my most memorable moment was in fact the day I was adopted. The day I got my people. The people who nag me to do my homework and clean my room. The people who are always there for me, even when we’re miles apart. The people whose hearts are always in the right place.The people who never seem to give up, no matter what. I guess it’s true what they say. You don’t get to pick your family. But when you’re adopted the opposite is also true. Your family gets to pick you. Maybe it was meant to be, or maybe it just sort of happened. But one thing I’m certain of is that my most memorable moment was when these people became my people.”

ok…..guys…like a week and a half ago i dropped ac*d for the first time since my bad trip. and i was waiting for the paper to dissolve in my mouth. but i was smoking a ciggy and had to spit (it happens sometimes!) and i accidentally spit out my undissolved tab on the nyc sidewalk…and i was like oh no….but i picked it back up and put it in my mouth. but then luke and james point over to another piece of spit out paper on the sidewalk and are like “hey wait, what did u put in ur mouth, this is def the tab u spit out” and i was so embarrassed….but i still got pretty high so i guess that random piece of paper did the trick anyways.
