Insomnia (part 1)

Summery: This is the first in a series of oneshots about Tim dealing with insomnia in creative ways, based on the ways I’ve dealt with insomnia. I have about five of these lined out already and based on the reception I get I’ll do more. Comments, likes and reblogs are all always very appreciated! Let me know what you think!

Tim Drake was struggling.

It had been nearly an hour since Bruce had found him in the cave, still finishing up some report or another, and forced him to go to bed. He glanced over at the electronic clock that he’d been checking every few minutes for the better part of that hour.

2:47 am

A groan of annoyance burst through his gritted teeth, and he had to resist the urge to pick up the offending object and throw it across the room. He really didn’t keep himself up deliberately, at least not anymore, but he just couldn’t seem to break the habit of not sleeping. It’s not that he wasn’t tired, oh god he was tired, he just couldn’t make himself fall asleep.

He turned onto his back and stared up at the ceiling for as long as he could bear to, internally debating whether or not actually counting sheep would help him at this point, before glancing back at the clock.

2:53 am

Tim sighed in defeat. He was starting to wonder if you could die from sleep deprivation. The manor was silent, save for the quiet whirring of the ceiling fan hung above Tim’s bed, and he wasn’t sure if he wanted to risk making Damian going into the living room to entertain himself with the television for a few hours.

He flicked on the light and got up, turning to look suspiciously at his bed. It seemed perfectly normal, a comforter, two decently stuffed pillows, but it had betrayed him. The floor would be better at this point.

The floor.

Tim had an idea. An idea fueled by sleep deprivation, but an idea nonetheless.

He ripped the comforter off his bed and laid it in the center of his carpet, folding it in half first to maximize the padding, then grabbed his pillowed and set them down at the head. He took a step back to examine the setup. It was good… but not enough. He needed more.

He pushed up his glasses, which had slid down the bridge of his nose as some point during the assembly of his new and improved floor bed. The project required more pillows, and more blankets, which meant he was going to have to brave the potential warzone that was the stretch of hallways that separated his bedroom from Damian’s. He chewed on the corner of is lip, weighing the risks in his mind. On one hand, waking Damian at three in the morning would mean world war three. On the other hand, getting more blankets might mean he actually got a decent night’s sleep for once.

Tim decided the blankets were worth it.

The hall light was already on, which meant that he only had to dim his bedroom lights before stepping silently onto the old hardwood floors. He could see the linen closet at the end of the hall. Taunting him. He narrowed his eyes (and not just because his prescription needed to be updated and he couldn’t quite see that far). Directly between him and his target, was Damian’s bedroom, the door open just enough for Tim to see the demon child curled up in his bed, asleep.

Tim crossed his arms.

Lucky bastard

Damian turned in his sleep, as if in response to the silent insult. Tim held his breath. If Damian woke up now and saw him out here he’d be finished. Although he supposed that being dead might be somewhat restful. Tim shook his head. No. He wasn’t giving up yet. Not that easy.

He took a hesitant step forwards cringing at the creak the echoed through the manor. Damian shifted again, but still didn’t wake up, and Tim wondered bitterly how a kid raised to be a paranoid little assassin managed to sleep more soundly than he did. It wasn’t fair. He crept further down the hall, avoided the boards that he already knew couldn’t support his weight without an audible groan.

Finally, after what felt like an hour he made it. The linen closet. He opened the door and carefully selected the thickest, softest blankets and the best pillows. He was just turning to creep back to his room, when Damian’s bedroom light flickered on.

Tim ducked around the corner in a panic. He wasn’t sure what would happen if Damian saw him up, but even the best thing Tim could think of was still something he’d rather avoid.

The sound of light footsteps drifted down the hall, followed shortly after by the sound of the bathroom door opening and shutting. This was his chance. Tim looked cautiously around the corner, and after confirming that the hall was clear, he booked it, pillows and blankets tucked underneath each arm, running as quietly as he could to his room and shutting the door behind him.

He held his breath for a moment, listening, his back pressed against the door.

Nothing. Then, after a moment, the sounds of Damian returning to his room.

Tim smirked to himself at having outsmarted his smug little brother. He’d have to rub that in at some point. He dropped everything he’d carried into a pile on the floor and started to form it into some sort of a nest of blankets.

He was laying the new pillows down next to those he’d already arranged when he was startled by a knock on his door. Quickly he pushed his makeshift floor bed out of view before he opened the door a crack and looked into the hall to see a tired looking Damian glaring up at him.

“What- Damian what do you-“

The twelve-year-old put up a hand to cut him off, “Drake, the next time you decide to stomp about the manor in the middle of the night, if you wish to actually evade my detection, try not dropping your glasses outside my bedroom door.” He held up Tim’s glasses, clutched in his other hand. “Oh… yeah. Uh… thanks for giving them back.” Tim took them from him sheepishly and Damian turned on his heel to walk back to his room. Alright. So, Tim didn’t have much to gloat about. At least that interaction had been relatively painless.

He turned his attention back to the pile of blankets pushed up against his dresser, and set about arranging them back into a vaguely bed-like formation on his floor. Once he was satisfied with that, he flicked off the lights and set his glasses down on top of his clock, which now read 3:42 am. Good. Maybe there was still enough night left for him to get a good couple hours of sleep.

He laid down on the misshapen mass of pillows and cocooned himself in his bedsheet. This was decidedly less comfortable than sleeping on his bed, but after the work he’d gone through to set this up he was at least going to stick it out for a little while.

He snuggled himself into a crack between two piles of pillows and closed his eyes, hoping when he opened them next some significant amount of time would have passed. He stared at the backs of his eyelids, listening to the whir of the fan for what had to have been at least an hour, before he let himself check the clock again.

3:57 am

Tim gave up trying to sleep. He pulled out his tablet and started working on the case Bruce had made him leave earlier that night.


His alarm woke him up at 6:30 am. When he didn’t get up, Alfred came in to wake him at 6:45, finding him curled up in a nest of blankets in the middle of his floor.

“Master Timothy, is there any particular reason you decided to abandon your bed in favor of raiding the linen closet in the middle of the night?”

Tim poked his head out from the mass, his hair sticking out at impossible angles. “The bed failed me Al.” He said, deciding apparently, that that was sufficient explanation as he pulled the covers back over his head.

Alfred sighed and smiled fondly, “I see, well, be that as it may, it is still time for you to get up for school.”

He received only a groan in response.

“Master Tim, I really must insist that you get up, or there won’t be time for you to get ready before the bus arrives.”

Tim’s head reemerged from the nest, “What are my chances of convincing B. to let me take the day off?”

Another smile, tinged slightly with pity this time, “Slim to none I’d say”

The young insomniac sighed and slowly pulled himself out of the pile he’d used for a bed, “Alright… I’m up.” He rubbed at his eyes miserably as he shuffled over to his dresser and pulled out the slacks and dress shirt that made up his Gotham Academy uniform. “I’ll be down in a minute.”

Alfred nodded and stepped back into the hallway, “Very good.” He turned back, poking his head in the door once more before leaving Tim to get ready, “And might I suggest that returning the blankets to their proper location be your priority once you’ve returned from school?”

Tim cracked a tired smile at the elderly man, “I dunno, I was thinking of making this my bed full time, what do you think?” Alfred cocked an eyebrow in warning, and Tim put and hand up, “Just kidding Al, I’ll clean it up.”

Another nod, “Very good Master Tim. Breakfast will be ready for you downstairs once you’ve dressed.”

Tim looked down at the mess covering his floor and shook his head sadly. It was a valiant effort, he thought, but alas, a failure.

The time on the clock blinked mockingly at him: 6:47 am. He’d gotten about an hour and a half of sleep in the end.

Tim Drake was struggling.

Writing is Hard, part 7: The Shower

Summary: Dean doesn’t appreciate the story you write about your first time.

Read Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5 Part 6

Warning: Smut, awkward sex gone wrong (but it gets fixed!)

Word Count: 3000ish

A/N: This is all written with love for fan fic. I’m teasing, not putting it down in any way. Hope you enjoy! (Sorry, tag list is closed!) XOXO


It’s a little sweaty when you wake up. Dean’s on his stomach with his face turned away from you, snoring a tiny bit, his body sprawling over the king-sized bed and leaving you curled up in one tiny little corner.

He does look good, though. The sunlight can’t get through the curtains, but you left a lamp on, and the muscles of his back are all exposed in the dim light. You lean up to get a better view and appreciate him fully, and instantly groan. Your muscles hurt. Apparently, you’ve been curled up in knots all night, and you desperately need to stretch out.

Sure enough, the party that Natasha Romanoff and Wanda Maximoff threw for the end of the year was anything short of crazy. Endless booze and an empty mansion, Nat had taken advantage of the fact that her very-rich parents were out of town on a business trip to throw the biggest rave of the year.

Everyone was there and you were soon being handed a red cup full of beer by a tipsy Pietro. He grinned, draping an arm around your shoulders and leading you into the vast house. The music was booming through the speakers and there were various people dancing, others were playing beer pong, and a few couples were scattered in various corners, making out as if they were in private rooms. You grimaced at this before Pietro commanded your attention and led you out to the dance floor.

Being raised as a Stark definitely has its perks, but let’s not forget about the downsides.

For instance, not being able to try out the Iron Man suit because of one accidental mistake of you blowing one up. 

Hey, it happens… right?

Or not being able to join the team on missions because it’s “too intense” or “not safe.”

Like, hello? I’m an Avenger? I deserve to participate, Dad.

And don’t even get started on boys.

Oh, lord. If he knew about Peter and you, well, let’s just say Tony’s suit isn’t the only thing that would be blown up.

Shameless Ignis Appreciation Post

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately and I believe I’m finally beginning to understand why I can’t help but adore Ignis Scientia so much. When we are first introduced to him, he reads as such a serious, borderline stoic character, then as the journey goes on, we see all the parts of his personality unfold, like a beautiful rose in a steamy hot leopard print shirt that makes me slightly question my sexuality. I especially love seeing all the different sides of Iggy through Prompto’s photos. EXAMPLES:

1. “I’m happiest when I have my Ebony” Iggy.

2. Ridiculously photogenic strategist Iggy.

3. Still hasn’t taken a bath Iggy.

4.“Just face it, Gladio, you don’t know where we’re going either” Iggy.

5. Ass Kicker of the Year™ Iggy.

6.Jumping dork Iggy.

7.“My glasses dropped and so will your panties” Iggy.

8. Majestically rides his Chocobo into battle Iggy.

9. Looks great in any landscape Iggy.

10. Preciously cute and also kinda shy Iggy.

11. OBVIOUSLY thinking “Gladio’s ass looks great in this light” Iggy.

12. Caught staring at Gladio AGAIN Iggy.

13. “I think I’m posed cool but actually am still a dork” Iggy.

AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST…


14. Derp Iggy.

And there you go! Only a few of the reasons why I can’t get enough of Ignis *_*

***

Laurent bends his legs, pulling his ankles out of direct sunlight and back into the shade of the poolside umbrella. He’s had sunburned feet once in his life, and never plans to repeat it. He throws an annoyed glance at Damen, who is stretched out on the adjacent lounge chair. Damen has spent the last three days turning steadily browner while being very lax about sunscreen.

The villa they’ve rented on the west coast of Santorini has its own pool as well as its own tiny courtyard complete with mosaic floor and fountain. Sunshine off white stone and white paint makes it feel overbright and otherworldly during the day, shimmering with heat and light. Laurent tried for an hour this morning to go over his notes on the Theran eruption and the formation of the caldera, but the heat snuck into his brain, and he can’t make himself mind. He feels looser, and happier, than he ever imagined he could.

The ratings for the show’s finale were unprecedented. With the story of Erasmus and Kallias under their belts, the finale was marketed as an even more shocking twist, and Laurent and Damen have become the new faces of unexpected romance. They’ve been asked to present at the Logies, and to appear on every morning show in the country.

Laurent has never been a celebrity in his own right, nor wanted to. He’s… adjusting.

The most obvious benefit is that Damen’s stock in the eyes of his PR department has shot way, way up, and his father has–after a long talk with both Damen and Laurent, which left Laurent feeling like he’d run a marathon–agreed that Damen will assume control of the company as planned. Theomedes looked like a man who’d already planned the first three years of his luxury retirement and had one impatient foot out the door; he was ready to throw Damen the reins immediately.

Damen promptly turned around and declared that he was leaving the company in the care of his brother Kastor for six months, extending the leave of absence he’d taken to come on the show.

“To do what?” Theomedes demanded.

“This and that,” said Damen, eyes dancing at Laurent. “Expand my horizons. Travel.”

“Dennis’ Double Life” Defense & Explanations

In this post, I’ll attempt to explain/defend all of the controversial scenes in the Season 12 finale, “Dennis’ Double Life.” This write-up has helped me to appreciate the episode a lot better and it might help some people who have mixed feelings about the episode to view it in a different light.

NOTE: This is a mix of speculation and canon evidence.

Question 1: Why was Dennis a butt to Mac the entire episode, especially after he was so nice to him at the end of “The Gang Tends Bar”?

Answer 1: I will break this answer into three parts:

  • Part 1: I got the vibe that Mandy surprised Dennis with the visit, which explains why Dennis had mere seconds to tell the Gang to pretend that he was someone else. With the flesh-and-blood reality of Brian Jr. on his mind, I don’t think he had the mental energy to consider Mac at all. (In “The Gang Tends Bar,” Brian Jr. wasn’t there, so Dennis didn’t feel that immediate/strong pressure. Also, Dennis was emotionally vulnerable and available after having told the Gang about his “big feelings,” so he was able to react better to Mac)
  • Part 2: I’m not sure Dennis fully comprehends Mac’s feelings for him. I think he knows, to some degree, that Mac is attracted to him, but it wouldn’t surprise me if he sees Mac’s attraction to him as a kind of strange “hero worship.” Dennis verbally confirmed that Mac is gay in “Mac Day,” but he constantly acts weirded out or confused when Mac does/says something that shows that he has feelings for him. For example, in “Mac & Dennis Move to the Suburbs,” Dennis thought it was weird that Mac would name their dog Dennis Jr. That reaction, of course, mirrors Dennis’ reaction to Mac’s reveal that he perfectly recreated their old apartment. I don’t think he was trying to hurt Mac. He just flat out does not understand why Mac would go through all the trouble.
  • Dennis also doesn’t appear to understand his own feelings for Mac. He has asked Mac to “get off with him” (a “mostly sexual” manipulation game) and tried to get him to participate in a threesome with a male golf caddy in “Frank’s Back in Business,” admitted to Dee that he made his sex tapes for himself and Mac in “The Gang Group Dates,” stated that he has a thing with Mac where he picks out porn for them that he doesn’t want Charlie to join in on (“The Gang Spies Like U.S.”), and danced for Mac when he saw him avidly watching him in “PTSDee,” but he doesn’t see anything strange about this. It’s just par for the course in their relationship.
  • If Dennis has trouble seeing his own feelings, then like hell is he going to fully see Mac’s feelings. And if he can’t see Mac’s feelings, he can’t deal with them properly. 
  • Part 3: In the back of Dennis’ mind, he was seriously considering leaving the Gang and being a father to his son. He knows that leaving the Gang is going to hurt him, so he emotionally pushed them away. When the Gang becomes “lesser” in his mind, it doesn’t hurt as much to leave them.

Summary: Dennis was stressed the heck out about Brian Jr. and didn’t have the energy to deal with his relationship with Mac.

Question 2: Were Mac’s feelings for Dennis treated as a joke?

Answer 2: Not necessarily. Even though Dennis likes to act like he’s the smartest member of the Gang, Mac is clearly more aware and accepting of the nature of their relationship than Dennis is. Mac was 100% fine with them pretending to be a couple and raising Brian Jr. (with or without Mandy), not because he’s super desperate and lovesick, but because, no matter what they call their relationship (lovers, partners, pretend, friends), they’d still be together. Mac just loves being with Dennis and wants to help solve Dennis’ problem, so, of course, that would be his plan. (And it’s actually a good plan.)

It hurts the empathetic audience members to see Mac treated the way he is by Dennis, but it’s normal Dennis behavior that Mac has accepted. Mac has survived his internalized homophobia, his father’s dislike of him, his mother’s indifference to him, and the Gang’s occasional dislike of him. Mac is stronger than we think he is. And if he gets tired of Dennis, he definitely has the strength to walk away from their relationship relatively unscathed.

Summary: Mac was pretty much having fun playing a character (he even wanted his character’s name to be Griffin) and hanging out with Dennis and Dennis was stressed the hell out about Brian Jr.

Question 3: Charlie wanted to have sex? With The Waitress?

Answer 3: Yes. In “Charlie Has Cancer,” Charlie was visibly disappointed when he realized that he missed the chance to possibly have sex with The Waitress. In “Who Pooped the Bed?” a drunk Waitress stated that she would get drunker and bang a random dude and Charlie asked her if it could be him. In "The High School Reunion Part 2: The Gang’s Revenge,” when a drunk Waitress told the Gang that she’d bang the next person who talked to her, Charlie opened his mouth and stepped forward, but Schmitty came out of nowhere and The Waitress went home with him.

Summary: I know some people headcanon Charlie as ace and/or sex-repulsed (I personally headcanon him as gray ace) and that’s fine, but Charlie has expressed interest in having sex with The Waitress in the show.

Question 4: Why did the Waitress have sex with Charlie?

Answer 4: Surprisingly, the possibility of that happening was set up in a previous episode. In "Charlie and Dee Find Love,” (which was written by RCG) the Waitress reacted in an arguably jealous manner towards Charlie’s then-girlfriend Ruby (“Who the hell is this, Charlie?!”). Also, at the end of the episode, the Waitress told Charlie that she needed him in her life and that she was thinking about reducing his restraining order. Admittedly, the Waitress’ strange behavior was after Frank accidentally put rat poison in her shampoo (which made her sick) and hit her with his car (which put her in a hospital), so she could have some kind of permanent brain damage.

In the beginning of the show, the Waitress wasn’t attracted to Charlie, but was concerned about his well-being sometimes. (In "The Gang Gives Back,” she tried to help Charlie with his alcoholism) It’s possible that after “Charlie and Dee Find Love,” the Waitress’ view of Charlie started to change. As the years went on, the Waitress’ problems started to get worse and worse, and, like Cricket (her male counterpart), she still found herself continually drawn to the Gang. Even though she still thinks Charlie’s a mess, a part of her might think that he’s all that she has left. (And that might, sadly, be true) And, if Charlie can help her to fulfill her dream of having a baby, maybe things can get better for her.

Something I noticed as well is that the Waitress never said she loved Charlie back. It’s possible that she still doesn’t love Charlie and never will, but sees him simply as a partner that can help her to take care of her child. (Also, in order to get Frank’s money, she needs to be partnered with Charlie)

Question 5: What’s the deal with The Waitress acting the way she did after having sex with Charlie?

Answer 5: We don’t know that much about The Waitress, but we do know that she sometimes does/thinks weird stuff like the rest of the Gang. (In "Mac Bangs Dennis’ Mom,” The Waitress slept with Frank, a man she’s not attracted to at all, in an attempt to get back at Dennis because she thought he was cheating on her with older women. In “Charlie and Dee Find Love,” it’s hinted at that The Waitress might be stalking Dennis because she has his phone number even though he changed it. In “The Gang Group Dates,” after years of Dennis’ mistreatment of her, The Waitress was still excited about possibly being Dennis’ girlfriend.) Also, even though she was kind of aggressive towards Charlie, all of her points were valid, some of Charlie’s responses were dumb, and her dislike of Charlie is totally understandable.

Question 6: What’s the deal with Charlie freaking out after finally getting The Waitress’ attention?

Answer 6: Surprisingly, the possibility of that happening was set up in a previous episode. In Season 9’s "Flowers for Charlie,” Frank paid The Waitress to hang out with Charlie because he was getting worried about him after he started taking “intelligence” pills for an experiment. When the Waitress began talking about her life, Charlie immediately started getting annoyed, started hearing a ringing in his head, and had to leave. We found out at the end of the episode that these pills were placebos. Basically, this was a strong hint that Charlie might be in love with the idea of The Waitress, not the actual person. So, even though he has been stalking The Waitress for 15 years, he might not really want to be with the real her. (The fact that he thought of The Waitress’ negative reactions as a “game between them” is another hint, of course)

Also, even though Charlie fantasized about raising multiple children with The Waitress in “The Gang Saves the Day” (which aired before “Flowers for Charlie”), it was still a fantasy. Charlie might fantasize about having a nice house, a wife, and children, but he still likes living in his unfancy and dangerous apartment and doesn’t handle stress well. There are huge conflicts that he doesn’t see.

Also, keep in mind that he came up with the plan only a few hours earlier and he mentioned that he wanted to get The Waitress pregnant so she would be tied to him for life. (clearly no thought about the actual baby and being a father)

So, with Charlie being Charlie and the reality of the situation crashing on him, he is starting to freak out.

Summary: Charlie freaking out is 100% in character.

Question 7: Why was Charlie a butt to Dee after having sex with The Waitress?

Answer 7: Charlie is an idiot and a misogynist, so he projected his issues with women and The Waitress onto Dee. Also, as Charlie mentioned, Dee possibly tried to have sex with him an additional time after “The Gang Misses the Boat” and he didn’t want that to happen again that night. So, overly-stressed and tired Charlie absentmindedly begged Dee not to be a whore numerous times before immediately falling asleep on top of her because even though he has issues with women, he feels comfortable with Dee.

Summary: Charlie and Dee’s relationship in a nutshell.

Question 8: Why did Dennis want to leave the Gang to take care of Brian Jr.?

Answer 8: I get the vibe that this might have been the first time that Dennis actually held Brian Jr. (or he hasn’t held him in a while?). Holding the child made him really understand that he is a living, breathing being he created and not just an obstacle to overcome to get back to his usual life. And then the child knew who he was, which made everything feel even more heavy. This is the first time in Dennis’ life that he’s been responsible for someone other than himself. He knows that if he stays with the Gang, he’ll feel guilty for whatever happens to the child. He’ll feel guilty that the child knew who he was but couldn’t see him. And the fact that the Gang doesn’t comprehend this at all (Mac, for example, excitedly told him “The plan worked!”) pushed him even further away from them and towards his child.

Question 9: Why didn’t the Gang seem to care when Dennis left?

Answer 9: The Gang has a great track record of unusual responses to deaths and departures.

In “Dennis and Dee’s Mom Is Dead,” Dennis reacted to his mother’s death by partying/hazing guys in his mom’s house and Dee and Frank seriously considered grave robbing her. In "The Gang Gets a New Member,” Mac and Dennis had no problem kicking Charlie out of the Gang and replacing him with Schmitty. In "The Gang Beats Boggs,” Mac’s only response to a drunk Dennis spontaneously leaving their plane was to write the number of beers he consumed on his forehead. In "The Gang Misses the Boat,” the Gang “broke up,” yet everyone just spent the episode doing their own thing. In "Frank Retires,” the rest of the Gang started cheering and clapping after Frank declared that he would be retiring from the Gang. I could go on and on, but you get the point.

It’s very likely that the rest of the Gang is still in shock/denial about Dennis leaving and they are expecting him to come back soon like everyone always does.

Since the highlight of the night was firing Dennis’ RPG, they decided to not let Dennis’ departure stop them. (It also doubled as a nice, fiery distraction)

As for blowing up the Range Rover? They think Dennis intentionally left it and it’s the perfect target to take out any frustrations they had/have with Dennis. (This is also one of the reasons Mac, who gave Dennis his cherished RPG, is the one blowing up the Range Rover, one of Dennis’ most prized possessions)

When Dennis comes back, they can excitedly tell him that they blew up the Range Rover and it was awesome.

Question 10: Why did Dennis leave the Range Rover?

Answer 10: Dennis wants to take care of his child, which is a good thing, but he is clearly going through a crisis and is not thinking clearly. He mentally/emotionally disconnected himself from the Gang (notice that he said “The bar’s done” and turned off the lights even though the rest of the Gang is still there and can run the bar) and left everything that reminds him of the Gang behind (which explains why the Range Rover is still there). He did not even think about packing, called a taxi, and headed straight to the airport to fly to Mandy and Brian Jr.’s location. This is one of the reasons the ending feels so “off.” It mirrors Dennis’ mindset.

Question 11: Why did Dennis name his child after Brian Lefevre?

Answer 11: This was probably Mandy’s idea and Dennis went along with it because he couldn’t think of anything else. He also probably wasn’t in the right headspace to complain since he wasn’t ready to have a child.

Black and White (Part 1)

Dean is a mechanic, running an illegal chop shop on the side to pay for his baby brother’s college tuition. Castiel is a local photojournalist who just so happens to catch Dean on film stealing a car.

Dean convinces Cas not to turn him in, and sparks fly.

But what happens when Cas appears to be involved with a rival group? Can Dean trust him at all? Or does Cas already know enough to ruin him?

A/N: Feedback appreciated! This is an AU that’s a little different, so I hope y’all enjoy this one!


There’s nothing left to do for the day, and Dean’s just about to lock up when a woman walks in, walking briskly and looking a little flustered, like most people who’ve just had unexpected car trouble.

“And what can I do for you?” Dean asks, eyeing her as she sets her purse on the counter. Pretty, but a little too upscale for his taste, with her manicured nails and name-brand everything.

My thoughts on BatB 2017 - Part 4: What I Loved

Part 1: The Songs | Part 2: The Ending | Part 3: The New Scenes | Part 4: What I Loved | Part 5: Things That Bothered Me

Ok, to be honest, I loved most of the movie, but here are some things I especially appreciated :).

* MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD *

Dan Stevens as the Beast
Dan Stevens is to die for in this movie. He is amazing in all his scenes - even when his face is all CGI and you can only hear his voice and see his eyes. After the backslash the CGI Beast received (some reviewers even called him “too much of a distraction”) I feared the worst but I actually think that the CGI is very well done - especially the close-ups - and his face is amazingly expressive, which (I believe) could not be achieved with prosthetics/make-up.

● Emma Watson as Belle
I actually liked Emma a lot and I thoroughly enjoyed her performance. Her singing voice is sweet, though not very powerful, but as I’ve stated earlier, I really do not think that Belle (as a character) has to be an accomplished singer (unlike e.g. Ariel) and personally, I do not care whether her voice (or anyone else’s for that matter) was autotuned or not. She sounds pretty good to my untrained ears.

The prologue

“Shall I join you for a dinner this evening?” - “Sorry, not this evening.” - “Busy?” - “No…”

I really loved the Beast’s portrayal as a well-educated person who forgot the joy reading brings and finds his sense of humour. I am sure there are some things that could be problematic regarding the change of the Beast’s character, but I will leave it to other reviewers. Overall, I was very happy with the changes and I also loved that he is still that melodramatic dork we all fell in love with in the animation and in the Broadway musical. Also, I am super biased because I loved Dan Stevens’s performance so much.

LumiereXPlumette and CadenzaXGarderobe loving relationships. I wouldn’t mind a spin-off about these ships :).

● Instrumental version of “Home” from the Broadway musical plays two times during the movie: first when Belle is shown to her new room and later when Madame Garderobe helps her to dress for the ball.

Belle slipping under the elaborate gown Mme. Garderobe put on her.

Belle planning her escape and making an improvised rope.

The stakes are higher for both the Beast and the servants. Similarly to the Broadway version, the servants are slowly becoming more and more like lifeless objects as the curse progresses. And the castle crumbles a bit every time the rose loses its petal. So, if the curse is not broken, the Beast is doomed to remain in the crumbling castle and completely alone.

All the book references and book quotes. I wouldn’t mind if there were more :).

Beast throwing a giant snowball at Belle. (Also, I am pretty sure Belle got her payback for this the next winter XD)

“I set her free. I am sorry I couldn’t do the same for all of you.“
THIS. This right here is such an amazing moment that I’ve been sorely missing in the animation and the musical. The Beast acknowledging that he fucked up his servants’ lives as well and he actually apologizes for that. #character development

Gaston shooting the Beast with a gun (but actually having a crossbow prepared as a plan B as well).

Belle destroying Gaston’s arrows. And while we’re at it, her line “Where is he?!” (aka “WHAT DID YOU DO TO MY BOYFRIEND YOU ASSHOLE?!”) was SO VERY COOL.

“I am not a beast.”

Gaston actually recharging his gun (although it does take him impossibly short amount of time given the type of the gun).

The coat-stand/Chateau saving Chip’s life. I cry every time I see it.

● Mrs. Potts’s name is revealed to be Beatrice :D Much Ado About Nothing, anyone?

“How would you feel about growing a beard?” - *the Prince laughs and growls*

I’ve stated before that I am not ecstatic about this exchange as I would prefer if she asked his name or made a book reference or something but…the backslash this dialogue received is so unbelievable and so unfair. Some people interpret it as “oh no, she’s trying to change him already!” Like: hello? This is Belle we’re talking about, she would never ever mean it like that. And some fans go as far as to claim that it’s a confirmation of Belle being a furry? Are you kidding me?! I think that this conclusion tells more about the people who make it than the scene itself.

Belle is simply teasing him, testing his reaction, wanting to know if behind a different exterior he is still the man she fell in love with. Which is actually pretty sweet.

(Besides, did nobody notice Lumiere literally smouldering after he kissed Plummete? So they made the fact that there were some side-effects of the curse left in them canon.)

THANKS FOR READING AND ENJOY♥

You breathed through the ashes and stood between the fire. It was warm but you didn’t burn. Some around you screamed for help, crying for an escape or accepted their fate in silence. It was catastrophic. Life flashed between your eyes, glimpses of your favorite childhood memories and teen years and then Sam appeared. Even though it was dark, the fire let you have glimpses of his face as he ran towards you.

“Y/N?!” Sam screamed repeatedly.

Your muscles didn’t respond to your commands. Your voice turned into mute. Your thoughts were clouded by the ashes and suffer around you. Everything went pitch black. The heat disappeared instantly but the screams and sobs followed down more slowly. Your body didn’t feel heavy anymore, your thoughts didn’t felt burdened, your voice didn’t sounded hollow. You found peace in this place…. Until-

Part 1

~

Previously: “Oh, I love you too Y/N! You’ve always been like a sister to me. I swear you mean the world to me too!” He kissed me on the cheek as we pulled away. When I looked around I saw that everyone had gotten misty-eyed, even Jughead, who was trying (and failing) to make it look like he hadn’t been paying attention the whole time. Kevin eventually made his way back to the coffee table, wiping his eyes before looking straight at me. “I swear to god Y/N if the rest of your speeches go anything like this I’m grounding you.” Everyone laughed while I looked around the room, trying to see who I would talk about next.

“No promises here Keller.” I said as I wiped a few of my own tears. My eyes eventually landed on the ravenette. “Ronnie,” I said cheerfully. “I love you too. Even though you’ve only recently come to town, I feel like I’ve known you my whole life. You’re confident and beautiful and elegant and a total badass, your temper is not to be messed with.” Everyone chuckled at that, knowing all to well the fear she could instill in others. “You’re fiercely loyal and protective of your friends, and you’ll do anything to get back at those who hurt us. You made it your personal goal to befriend me, even though I was pretty shy around you at first.” Veronica smiled at me, her face beaming with pride.

“You never gave me the chance to hate you, or even dislike you. I mean you did cheat a little when you used those cupcakes to help win me over,” Her smile got even bigger, full blown grinning now. “But I’m willing to look that over. You dug your way into my heart to the point where I can’t see us not being friends anymore.”

“Just like Kev Ronnie, you push me out of my comfort zone a lot, although you don’t always know when to back off,” Ronnie gave me a sheepish smile. You’re heart’s always in the right place though, so I won’t really hold it against you. You somehow manage to have both fire and ice in your soul Ronnie, and it shows stunningly on you. Now, there are times where you tend to slip into your whole “spoiled rich kid from New York City” mode, and again, you don’t always know when to back off and let me be, and to be honest… that does bother me a little.” It was my turn to give a sheepish smile.

“You and Kevin seem to forget sometimes that not everyone is an extrovert, and that some of us don’t need to socialize with 50 people everyday to have fun. You can be a bit much at times, but that’s exactly one of the reasons I love spending so much time with you, you help to balance me out, and you’ve been there to help me along with everyone else when I’ve needed you guys.” I huffed out a breath and looked around, everyone was watching us intensely while Ronnie’s face looked rather calm… but I could see in her eyes she was getting emotional. I took a breath before continuing.

“I love you Ronnie, you’re like an older sister to me. You’re great at providing support and knowing what works best to comfort people. You’re the kind of person that knows what she wants and knows how to get it. You brought variety and a refreshing sense of originality to this small town, and I thank you for that. I know we’re going to be lifelong friends Ronnie, whether I wanna be or not.” She chuckled, and I noticed her eyes were starting to water slightly. “Don’t worry, I wanna be friends forever!” I smiled at her.

“I want you to know though Ron, that I’ll always be here for you if you ever need anything, you can always come to me if something or someone’s bothering you. You’re not the only one whose fiercely loyal and protective of her friends, okay? Even if the thing that’s bothering you is me, ESPECIALLY if it’s me, come tell me please, so I can do something to fix it. I don’t ever want you to be upset girl, and I never want to be the reason why. You’re an amazing person Veronica Lodge, don’t you EVER forget that.”

I put my head down and sighed, signaling I was done, before looking back up at everyone. Kevin and Cheryl were playfully glaring at me while they wiped their eyes, Archie and Jug were shaking their heads and wiping their eyes as well, and Betty was just letting the tears come out. Veronica slowly got up from the couch and walked over to me, she stared at me for a couple seconds before wrapping her arms around me tightly while she rested her head on my shoulder, letting a few tears fall. “ I love you too Y/N, you’re one of the few real friends I have.” She whispered before straightening back up to look at me, a wavering smile on her face. 

“Don’t ever think that you could bother me Y/N, and don’t forget that you have fire in you too, I know you can be fierce if you’re pushed enough, I could see it in you when we first met. You’re honest and kind and beautiful too.” Her smile faltered slightly. “I just wish you’d told Kev and I sooner that you don’t wanna be pushed so much, we didn’t mean to upset you. I’m sorry Y/N. Forgive us?” Ronnie looked like she was about to start crying again.

It was all I could do to not jump in her arms and start crying as well. “Of course I do, I know you guys mean well, so that’s why I put up with it, I-” “No.” Kevin jumped in. “No Y/N, from now on you have to tell us if we’re pushing you too much girl. We don’t want you being upset either.” Veronica started nodding. “We’ll remember this and try to ease up on you more, okay?” I nodded, realizing I wasn’t going to win this argument. Veronica gave me a kiss on the cheek before making her way back to the couch, one last tear falling out of her eye before she wiped it away. 

“You’re grounded by the way,” Kevin spoke up, pretending to be mad. “I said no more tear-jerking speeches.” Everyone laughed at that, still wiping away some tears that wouldn’t stop coming. I took a deep breath, trying to calm down before I looked around at everyone. “Sorry, but you said to tell everyone what I really, truly thought of them, so deal with it Keller.” I grinned. “So, whose next?”

A.N.: So, part 2! Let me know what you guys think and who Y/N should talk about next, or if you just wanna leave it up to me.

Feathers, Part 3 - An Elsewhere University Tale

@elsewhereuniversity setting. This place is so much fun to play in!!

(Also. you guys. you guys. I am Bad at Tumblr, so I haven’t like. responded to anyone. BUT! I have read every single tag and comment y’all have left on parts 1 & 2. Much hand-flapping was had. as was bragging. i have bragged Quite A Lot to various irl friends.)

And I’m now here with part 3 of Feathers for your viewing pleasure. ;D  (Part 1 is here, and part 2 is here.) 

Previously:

‘Call me Thirteen.’

You take it all back. This stupid, stupid boy. He’s going to get you all killed. Heavy on your shoulder, Barnes laughs and laughs and laughs and laughs.

Part 3

You lead them back to your dorm, keeping on eye on Thirteen. The campus is deserted, and he’s exactly the sort of idiot to keep looking back on the cusp of an adventure.

When you get to Dorm 5, you usher the others in.

Not-Jenna stays outside.

You look at her in askance, and she shuffles, abashed.

Oh. Right. She tried to steal you, and instead she ended up following you. The balance of power has shifted between the two of you.

‘Be welcome in my hall,’ you tell her, and she executes a perfect curtsy, even in skinny jeans. Barnes chortles and preens at your hair before pushing off your shoulder.
