category: lots of fluff and minimal angst
author note: this is my submission for the aroha fic exchange! to whoever’s request this is, i hope you enjoy it!
This piece is dedicated to the amazing, caring, and strong af girl @rock-y-myworld. I hope this helps with your recovery. ❤
The door to your bedroom opened, and you looked up from the book in your hands. You smiled as your eyes landed on Rocky. That smile only widened when you noticed what he was holding. Tea and chocolate.
“You’re a life saver,” you gushed as he approached your bed.
Rocky grinned, handing you the mug and placing the chocolate bar into your lap. “Anything to help my baby feel better.”
You blew on the tea and smiled to him. “Thank you.”
He nodded. “Anything else I can get you? An ice pack? Heating pad? Another blanket? A fan?”
“Just you.” You pet the spot next to you on the bed.
Rocky smirked and settled down beside you, wrapping his arm around your shoulders. “How’re you feeling, babe?”
“Enh.” You shrugged, sipping your tea carefully. “Sore, tired, and a bit uncomfortable. But I’m okay.”
“Are you sure there’s nothing else I can get for you?”
You laid your head on his shoulder. “I’m sure.”
Rocky kissed the top of your head, letting his lips linger. “I hope this surgery works. It’s not fair that you’re in pain so often.”
You shrugged a shoulder. “Life isn’t fair. But, at least I have you to help me deal with it.”
“I’ll always be here with you, babe. Especially in times like this.” He tightened his arm around you, forcing you to lean against him more.
You moved the book and chocolate onto your bedside table before slowly and carefully shifting. Rocky tensed, ready help if need be. But, when you snuggled into his side he relaxed.
“How’s the tea?” he asked.
“Good. Still a bit hot, but it’s very tasty.” You blew on it slowly. “I don’t know how you do it, but you always seem to steep it for just the perfect amount of time.”
have you ever thought about what pokemon team the hamilton characters would have if they were in the universe?
boss’ memo : this is more of an au because i don’t know what chill means and also i hAD TO CUT THIS SHORT?? oops! oh, and, and–these aren’t their full parties! these are their significant pokemon =)
alexander gets a squirtle !! he’s named her blot !!!! she doesn’t know what she’s doing and kind of thinks that everything is food but he adores her nonetheless
he also owns an audino who was traded to him by lafayette–the audino is male, named ange, and helps alex out with self care!!
audino are often used for trainers who have difficulty taking care of themself simply because their helpful nature ! they’re also good pokemon for those who have panic attacks or anxiety, as the feelers on their ears can pick up the change in heartbeat !
blot is related to john’s blastoise !
alexander also owns a hoothoot–or, rather, he has a hoothoot that follows him around and he doesn’t want to catch said hoothoot because he kind of wants a braviary,,, unnamed hoothoot likes to perch on alex’s hair !
alex is very selective with the pokemon he keeps on his team, and the pokemon he usually has out is his squirtle!
he has a dream team, which includes an alakazam !
(yes, alex wants to be the very best, like no one ever was)
john owns a blastoise named cabbage and she’s cranky and intimidating and has a scar on her right eye but she adores john with all her heart and is ready to throw down if you as much as have a negative thought about him. she’s won most of her battles, and while john isn’t the most powerful trainer–the moment cabbage appears? everyone runs !!! because cabbage is not playing around and sees all opposing pokemon as a threat to her john,,,
they met when he was fishing one day and accidentally pulled up a squirtle, which he subsequently tried to hide from everyone and as he didn’t know what to feed her, he gave her cabbage
she was quite a fan of the cabbage and the rest is history
he also owns a medicham whose name is syrup–he’s a big fan of naming his pokemon after food !! syrup knows calm mind just for him !
he hatched syrup and raised her from the beginning !
john also has a skarmory who he’s named avocado. despite the cute name, if you ever decide to have a sky battle with john and he uses avocado, you can expect your flying pokemon to be badly injured at the end,, john is quite ruthless when he battles !!
i imagine john runs a pokemon daycare !
hercules owns a cleffa named rocky because this little guy knows metronome and will absolutely destroy you (and he has an affinity for randomly selecting the ‘-punch’ moves, such as thunderpunch, ice punch, fire punch, etc)
hercules also has a volcarona named marmalade ! he only uses his volcarona if he feels he’s in danger,,, his volcarona is his pokemon that he uses for flying ! she’s pretty protective over him, and tends to be the pokemon that follows him around, rather than rocky.
(because rocky is short tempered and will attack any threat on sight while marmalade calmly waits for orders)
marmalade was his first pokemon !
he owns a leavanny named pine ! she helps him out with making clothes !! pine is his most recent pokemon, but she’s very in tune with his emotions regardless ! she’s a pretty big fan of his!
herc owns a skitty named rouge !! rouge is kind of a brat? though, he does win all the cute and smart contests !
his goodra’s named periwinkle, and she’s also v punchy,, she and rocky stay in their pokeballs because they’re always ready to pick fights with other pokemon, even during times of peace,,
he owns a kecleon named rescue, who he actually got from john! rescue is kind of meowth-like (minus the talking) in that she’s very human with her behavior. she’s very high levelled–only marmalade outranks her! she’s a trained service pokemon, and if there’s any pokemon who can help herc out if he goes nonverbal, it’s rescue!
hercules seldom trades any of his pokemon because he grows very attached to them, hence his large party
hercules runs a fairy-type gym !
lafayette owns a lucario named josephine and she’s really good for him, as she helps him in reading the atmosphere. in addition, she can also sense when he’s upset and generally helps out with his low empathy!! she mega evolves (because of course she does) and she knows she’s better than all the other pokemon,, she usually has a smug expression ! you can usually find her lurking a few feet behind lafayette !!
lafayette is the last member of the elite four that you encounter and he helps you out if you black out (which you do when someone destroys your entire party in pokemon)
he has a absol named raoul, as absols help sense disaster and raoul has saved laf’s life many-a-time !! raoul is higher levelled than josephine is, but he tends to keep to himself and as a result tends to only be released if lafayette has a bad feeling about something or is getting ready to battle !
lafayette also owns a gengar named davet, who has a habit of escaping his pokeball and hiding in lafayette’s shadow,, davet doesn’t actually mean any harm ! he’s v friendly and adores lafayette v much !
davet is a shiny! and lafayette had no idea for the longest time, as shiny and nonshiny gengars look very alike
josephine was his first pokemon, who he hatched from an egg!! he caught davet during a haunted house dare, and he met raoul when the absol tackled him in order to save him from another trainer’s pokemon gone rogue !
george (washington) has a kangaskhan he affectionately calls “nana”!! nana is older than he is, and practically raised him,, she doesn’t have a baby in her pouch, but it’s fine, as she treats george like her baby and one would know better than to mess with the fury of a mom! nana is blind in one eye, but this doesn’t mean she can’t use crunch to decimate all those who oppose ‘er. she’s v high level and terrifyingly fast,,
he also owns a dragonite named sir hog, and sir hog doesn’t seem to mind his name at all,,, he’s a tank and can shrug off several fairy or ice type moves with no problem at all !
his houndoom is named loopsy and she’s usually the pokemon he has at his side !! she’s a trained service pokemon and helps george whenever his ptsd flares up !
(george names his pokemon like he names his dogs)
he owns an empoleon named george jr who is aptly named as george jr is essentially george in pokemon form,, he hatched george jr from an egg and will affectionately refer to the large metal penguin as his son,,
george beat the prior champion, king george, and as such is the current pokemon champion!
aaron owns a bulbasaur that he’s named theodosia the third (there’s no theodosia jr yet–he’s planning ahead) and he’s vowed to protect this bulbasaur with his life,, it’s unknown if theo iii knows truly how much aaron loves her,,,
his pidgeot is named pierre and he’s larger than most pidgeots!! pierre is the most affectionate pokemon you’ll ever find,, he still thinks he’s a tiny pidgey and tries to perch on aaron’s arm / head,, aaron is suffering but he adores pierre so it’s all fine
he also owns a gulpin who enjoys trying to eat his items,, she’s close to evolving and is trying to gather more mass, and aaron is aware of this–she always looks sorry when he has to wrangle his berry case away from her, but he’s not upset,, he understands. her name is lima bean
aaron is that one guy who has at least seven pokemon just casually following him around because they like him
most of the misc pokemon are cat pokemon?? he has at least three skitty that follow him and there’s always one purugly. watching.
Summary: Avengers High School AU. Gender neutral reader-insert. You, the new kid, just want to be left alone. But instead, you get the Avengers gang – and maybe, a new home too.
Warnings: Cursing. Drinking / alcohol. Campfire. Tons of feels and angst. Slight ScarletVision. Mention or implications of bullying, thievery, drugs, domestic abuse, bystander effect, parental death and porn. Lots of references from the movies and a few from the comics.
Author’s Note: THIS TOOK SO LONG OMG, and it’s SO LONG. Sorry, I couldn’t help myself. So, keep in mind that the backstories they mentioned here are just the backstories I come up in parallel to what they’ve experienced in the MCU, mixed only a tiny bit with their origins in the comics. I only hoped I balanced all of them well, they’re so many. Have fun with your Avengers gathering! 💖️
Holy shit. Arms around yourself, you stopped pacing as a limousine – a limo, of all things – slid down the road with the ease of T’Challa and the swagger of Tony Stark, glistening beneath the orange glow of a nearby streetlight. It stopped right in front of you.
A large man in a suit stepped out from the driver’s seat, and approaching the passenger door, gave you a nod. “G’evening,” he said, then clarified your name. You bobbed your head in return, and he beamed. “Name’s Happy. Tony sent me.”
Your wide eyes swept across the length of the vehicle. “This is really unnecessary,” you said, just as he opened the back passenger door.
“Tony wanted to show off,” he said, shrugging a shoulder. You stepped inside, and sitting on the plush, black seats, you scanned its stylish and elegant interior, all black and grays and silver, and –
Just got back from Comicpalooza 2017 in Houston, TX and it was a con with a lot of ups and downs.
I am going to link to a lengthy run down of the bad. Those higher ups with the con security were absolutely abyssmal to people dealing with mental disabilities - not believing them when they said they needed help and being outright threatening. A high-up manager at the convention was absolutely unaccomodating, refused to believe that the incident occurred, and refused to apologize that it happened.
Anyway, most of Friday was spent in the hotel room after getting in and getting the two things done that were a bit time sensitive.
We holed up until that evening beacause one of the things I was /really/ excited to try my hand at after nearly chickening out a few times, and then not sure if I was in the mood to - was a Crossplay Drag Show - not just the costume contest but everyone doing a full on lip synch presentation. But even after the incident, my wife really encouraged me and bolstered me - wanting to push through and watch me. We’d been talking since I heard about the event since I read about it on Thursday before the con, and she suggested THE BEST SONG to perform to: a male vocal of “You Don’t Own Me” from the Dirty Dancing soundtrack.
I’ve never done anything like this before - I’m usually Awkward Penguin whenever I do anything in front of crowds and have been trying to build my confidence in that regards. I usually feel very uncoordinated and awkward when it comes to choreographed movements, but this sounded - SO FUN - and fortunately, the person organizing the event, Bex - was suuuuper nice and encouraging.
And holy cow you guys… I won! I won the “Mr. Comicpalooza” title, complete with sash for the Drag King competition. As it turns out, I wasn’t the only drag show newbie - a fantastic DragQueen cosplaying Black Cat and I talked for a while, bolstered each other up. She’s also just
been dipping her toe into drag - through Halloween and parties and this was her first public foray. And as it turned out she also ROCKED it and won Mrs. Comicpalooza .
We got to meet up with our good friend @defilerwyrm who recently moved away and spent some time with him and met some of his awesome family, meander the dealer’s room together and went to an AWESOME shadowcasting of Rocky Horror done by the After Midnight crew who was most excellent. It has been probably 10 or 15 years since I saw a shadowcast of the show, and man it brought back good memories. All of the company were super nice, really enthused to be performing, and man, I forgot how cathartic a bawdry, vulgur production of Rocky can be.
“Janet” was shadowcast by this awesome woman whose costumes were Gaga inspired (and damn she looked like her too), and they had a genderbend Rocky who was a short blonde who was a delght to see pick up their Frankenfurter. And really, everyone was high-energy and into the production :)
And wyrm’s sister who we sat next to knew soooo many of the callbacks that I have mostly forgotten so it was great being able to hear them all so well and really get into the interactivity!
Saturday we also got to do photos with the amazing Mike Colter and Anthony Mackie!
You could tell that Anthony Mackie is in Marvel shape right now for Infinit Wars - not only is he bringing the guns with those arms of his like usual, but man, you could count his abs through his knit henley. But he was soooo engaging and friendly even for the SUPER FAST photo shoot. All con photo shoots are very in and out quick - and that’s really all I was expecting, but he said hi, Welcomed us, and instead of just assuming a standard pose asked what we wanted to do. And he grinned when he saw our cosplay and called me “Buckette” (which is awesome, still grinning about that). I had an idea in mind and was thrilled when he was up for it:
I had to play up the fantastic sibling-rivalry chemistry with Bucky & Falcon since my wife and I were cosplaying, so we went for this “Cap Family Photo” - I asked to kind of do a play fight pose with me with me in a choke hold - and when he was up for it but asking for kind of his expression/motivation my wife, @shipperhipster said “Can you move your seat up?” And it was on X3
Mike Colter… man, I have also kind of been nursing a crush on this amazing human being. He was fantastic in Luke Cage - such a genuine character ,earnest and /good/ person - and still… unf… He has such a beautiful face with kind eyes, and, well, he is soooo toll and thicccccc.. SO I have been saying for a while I really would like to meet him and bet he gives the most amazing hugs (Spoiler: he does!) So I was still in costume when we met him and not only did he call me gorgeous and gave a great hug, but elaborated a bit more again when we got his autograph a little later - said that the stubble make up was really good - and I made a beautiful man and wondered what I looked like underneath - my wife helpfully showed him a photo and he smiled and said in a very complimentary that I looked a bit like Tina Fey. We chatted for a bit - he said that filming Defenders was a lot of fun, and that he’s excited for the faster plot-paced 8-ep season and that his story arc and chemistry with Danny in the series is good .
So I was just a bit aflutter. And so mabe I also had to go back Saturday for a second meeting out of costume. He recognized me, said of couse he remmebered me from the day before, and got a swoon-worthy photo with him dancing/dipping me *___*
We also briefly met Jessica Henwick - who is the actress who plays Colleen Wing in Iron Fist (and soon to be Defenders). She was awesome! Seemed really enthused to be there, and we talked about really loving seeing strong female characters in the MCU and Colleen is a great character - seeing her running her own dojo and kicking ass. She personalized the autograph “Power to badass women!” So yes - even though I wasn’t a big fan of the casting choice of Danny Rand ( though Finn Jones granted seemed very nice) Colleen was kickass!
We also got to meet Pom Klementieff, who played Mantis in GotG2 - and seems just as sweet in real life. This was apparently her first con and we had been in line early to see her. She wasn’t up for special poses for photos (I had hoped to get a pose of her touching my wife’s arm and pointing at me when we were in Steve & Bucky costumes a la the Starlord/Gamora scene, but she was nice about it).
We also went by Jon Bernthal’s table (Have I mentioned there were a ton of marvel actors at this con? Definitely the reason we went! ) - and glad we did. We’d seen him before at other cons but were getting something signed for a friend this time, and he was very friendly and open. We congratulated him on getting his own headliner Punisher series and said we were excited to see it/that Punisher stole the show in Daredevil season 2 - and he said he hoped we liked it and that he was so nervous! I was just… oh my goodness it is so endearing and refreshing when someone who plays a role like that to still get butterflies about doing a good job on a show lead and portrayal of a character. He also runs a pit bull rescue, and that is amazing and wonderful and we expressed that to him.
I’m excited for Mr. Peabody and Sherman because it is about a dog that is a dad. Not just a father figure but seemingly a dinner-cooking, errand-running, permission-slip-signing dad. To a human boy! He has raised him and gives him rides to school and sets up playdates and everything is so domestic but THE DAD IS A DOG. The time travel is a fun bonus, all I really need is this sweet weird family dynamic.
Something short, but sweet! Hope your mother’s day is wonderful! Make sure to send requests in because they’re open! xx
I look down at my growing stomach. I was 12 weeks and all it looked like I was bloated, but I had a little baby growing inside of me at just 21 years old. Rocky and I always talked about starting a family, but wanted to wait a bit after we got married. Well, 6 months later here we are with a baby on the way, and looking for a new house with more room.
“I loved that house.” I say climbing into the passenger seat of the car, “It has two extra room for kiddos and the garage is big enough for a studio.” I say turning to look at my handsome husband in the driver’s seat.
Ha, aw. Shard’s mane is braided with a ribbon tied to hold it together, Ultra (Lloyd’s horse) has very long and flowing hair with multiple ribbons that flow with it’s hair, Wisp has a shorter mane than the others with ribbons tied on its reigns. Cole has one horse tamed and saddled, but he’ll tame a random horse if Rocky isn’t around. Rocky has extremely short hair, almost like a mohawk. The ribbons are cut shorter than the others’.
