This wasn’t what you had in mind when Bucky said ‘stupid.’ Stupid was stealing shopping carts or drinking before noon. Stupid was making asses of yourselves in a public setting. This, however, was a new kind of stupid- an illegal kind of stupid.
“You look nervous,” Bucky laughed, raising both eyebrows as a form of a challenge. You didn’t relent, however, still looking around nervously as Bucky tugged on the handles of the glass doors, testing them. Cupping his hands around his eyes, he looked into the building, nose an inch from the glass.

“You are remembered for the rules you break”. –General Douglas MacArthur
Go break some! “People who follow all the rules and chase every trend tend to get forgotten - they look great, but they’re not as memorable”. –Dita Von Teese
“Hey give it back?!” you yell trying to grab your bag from
Two girls in your class that thought it would be funny to play catch with your
They giggled and continued to throw it to each other.
“Give it back or-”
“Or what?” one of them said shoving you hard so you fall
into the other.
People had started to watch now and you flushed bright red, embarrassment
rushing through you.
You fought back tears as they laughed at you. It was bad
enough you were bullied, but also sensitive? Not to mention you embarrassed
yourself in front of everyone. And it was just the weekly school assembly, in
You sniffled, taking in all her words, no, not words,
insults. Dark, mean words, full of malice and hate, intended for ill purposes.
A black Impala slowly moved up the road.
The man driving and observed the scene, instantly climbing
out and walking towards the commotion in a few long strides.
The crowed opened to let him pass as he walked to the
The girls stopped and giggled nervously as they saw the
handsome man staring at you. “Hi…I’m Jenifer. Who are you?” she attempted to
flirt with him.
“Y/n, Baby are you okay?” he asked holding out one of his
large hands to you.
You nod while the girls scowl at him calling you baby.
He noticed this and took your hand, pulling you tight to his
firm chest. Your hand resting flat on his bicep.
“You don’t need her, honey I can show you a good time.” The other
girl spoke with a wink.
Sam looked at them with the bitchiest face you had ever
“I don’t need you to show me a good time when I have this
beautiful, perfect woman in my life.”
He looked down at you and you had no idea what to do, though
you had a mad crush on him the youngest Winchester had never shown any interest
Without warning he dipped you slightly, one arm hooked
around the back of your neck, the other securely holding you waist.
He brought his lips to yours and your eyes widened. You
slowly closed them then moved into the kiss, holding his face in your hands.
Like the Sailor and nurse who were pictured kissing in
celebration of end of Second World War.
He then broke the kiss, hooking his arm with yours and leading
you to the car with not even a second glance to the girls.
But you looked back and stuck your tongue out at them with a
smirk as they were speechless.
Eleven did not sexually assault anyone. He kisses out of excitement, not out of sexual desire. It’s a lot like that old picture of the sailor kissing the nurse (which, of course, this website has also claimed as sexual assault), which he simply did because it was announced that the war was over and he was excited. The woman herself has said she didn’t mind it and knew it was excitement. The Doctor is the same way. He gets excited, he grabs the first person he sees and kisses them.
River Song is dead. The Doctor first met her WHEN. SHE. DIED. He isn’t cheating on her by flirting casually because she’s D E A D. Plus, she doesn’t exactly act much like she’s his wife, so???? Eleven has every right to move on because his wife has been dead to him for centuries. CENTURIES.
Eleven is flirty. Ten was flirty. Nine was flirty. (And I don’t see you getting at those last two because they weren’t written by Moffat!!) Being flirty is not a bad thing. It is not sexist, or sexual assault-like. It’s sometimes just a trait that people have and they mean no harm with it.
Eleven is not sexist, he just has the occasional bad line thrown in because people think jokes about women are funny. But he is not entirely sexist. Saying a couple jokes doesn’t make you sexist, thinking women are incapable, hormonal sexual objects who should be at home with their children is sexist. And the monk thing? Monks were barely allowed to be near women so far back and the sign the monk made was not for protection, but to remember God was with him.
The Doctor smacking Clara’s butt was inappropriate, yes, but he didn’t know better. He thought that was a humany boyfriend thing to do. People can’t know better without being taught better. OH AND HE’S A FICTIONAL CHARACTER SO HE CAN’T BE TAUGHT BETTER?
So what if Eleven gets boners…? Guys wake up hard every morning? At least Eleven just gets them when he sees naked (or strong) women, which is entirely normal?
He kills people because he’s fucking emotionally destroyed and has gotten darker over the years because that’s WHAT PEOPLE WITH EMOTIONAL PROBLEMS DO. HE WOULDN’T KILL SOMEONE WHEN HE WAS NINE? WELL, GUESS WHAT, THAT WAS SEVEN YEARS AGO FOR US AND SEVERAL CENTURIES AGO FOR HIM.
In a photograph taken by LIFE colleague Bill Shrout, Alfred Eisenstaedt kisses an unidentified woman reporter in Times Square on VJ Day, August 14, 1945 — a powerful visual echo (in retrospect) of the now-iconic, era-defining “sailor kissing a nurse” picture that Eisenstaedt himself shot that very same day.
Veteran who claimed to be sailor in iconic photo dies
NBC News: A man who claimed to be the sailor kissing a nurse in the iconic World War II photo has died.
Navy veteran Glenn McDuffie died at 86 of natural causes, his daughter said. McDuffie’s claim that he was the man in the famous Alfred Eisenstaedt photo was backed up by a forensic artist who matched his facial structure.
Several other men and women have claimed to be the couple in the photo, which was originally published in Life magazine. The outlet never verified the identity of either the sailor or the nurse. - NBC News
Photo: Glenn McDuffie holds a portrait of himself as a young man, left, and a copy of Alfred Eisenstaedt’s iconic Life magazine shot of a sailor embracing a nurse in a white uniform, right, at his Houston home Tuesday, July 31, 2007. McDuffie says he is the sailor in the famous photograph and that claim is now backed up by the Houston Police Department’s forensic artist. (Pat Sullivan / AP)
