This week my friend was in Pittsburgh and she ran into Kris Letang. So she goes “you’re Kris Letang!” and he’s like “yeah! are you a penguins fan??” and she goes “no not really, i’m a flyers fan” AND HE DEAD ASS GOES “well we all can’t be perfect” AND. WALKED. AWAY.
Summary: Requested by @fantastic-fantasy-fanfics:
For your fluff week, could you please write a Steve x reader fic where the reader breaks her arm or something during a mission so she has to stay in the tower to heal. After a while she gets really bored and glum so Steve takes her out to cheer her up? Maybe by taking her duck feeding or to the zoo or something.
Word Count: 3,254
A/N: One of my favorites ever. I hope you all enjoy <3
Stepping into the common room,
Steve couldn’t help the affectionate smile that bloomed on his lips. You were
sprawled on the couch, looking every part the most miserable person, groaning
at the roof, head pulled back on the armrest. Your broken arm was in a cast,
resting on your chest, the TV’s remote thrown on the floor right next to the
arm you had hanging off the sofa. The television was still on, but you weren’t
paying attention to it, and Steve suspected it was because you were bored.
He walked forward and cleared his
throat, letting you know he was there. That sound made you sit up and you spun
your head around until your eyes met. Steve grinned.
“Are you doing okay?”
You glowered. “No. I’m bored as all
hell and there’s nothing to do in this stupid place that doesn’t require both
of my hands.”
Telling the boys over and over that ambition doesn't equal the need to look perfect. Walking to breakfast with sleep still in their eyes and wearing baggy jumpers under their robes. When asked why they don't "act more like Slytherins," they tell people that cunning doesn't require aesthetic.
Shying away from loud noises, afraid of getting in trouble, of the vicious stares of the older students. Never raising their hand in class, or speaking out of turn. When asked why they don't "act more like Gryffindors" they reply that Chivalry doesn't require you to be boisterous.
with gaunt, hollow cheeks and tired eyes. That never go into the kitchens with the others. Who wear clothes three sizes too big. With sharp tongues and eyes that glare at those who criticise them. When asked why they don't "Act more like Hufflepuffs" they reply that Dedication does not require extroversion.
Who cry when they're set more homework, that catch themselves holding their breath in the girl's bathroom so that no one will hear their sobs. That Try to spend hours in the library, but can't make the information sink in. That spend too much time worrying, and not enough time preparing for exams. When asked why they don't "Act more like Ravenclaws" they reply that a love of knowledge does not always require academic success.
