she looks at him a lot in the video

anonymous asked:

In my opinion shawn doesn't have a type of girl. I think that because he always said that he likes brunettes,than he said he likes blondes more and than brunettes.he always change his mind. I don't think he focuses his mind on these things and he said this in a recent interview. I'm saying this because I've noticed that lots of fans are worried about that. I don't know why the girls in the music videos look the same but maybe,it isn't his choice. *

Second part: * I don’t think he’s looking for a perfect girl in looks. Obviously she has to be pretty or cute but it’s not necessary to be a model to him and lots of things he said makes me think that. Again,I’m saying this because I’ve seen that some fans are sad about the “type” thing and I truly believe in what I said before. Love your account,you’re always nice and honest. Keep going girl!💪🏻

As far as I know about casting people for music videos the artists actually doesn’t say much when it comes to the casting part of it. There are mostly professional casting directors over that part of it and it’s not Shawn’s to pick entirely on his own. There are people in Shawn’s team who stood for putting this video together practically (making sure everything was there and went as it was supposed to) and I’m pretty sure those people casted Ellie as well. Sure, she was probably brought in to see if her and Shawn had chemistry on screen and could act well together but it’s not like Shawn looked through a book of girls, pointed one out and went like “I’m picking that one.” This is a professional music video - it has nothing to do with Shawn’s personal “type” in girls - it’s completely work related. There’s nothing personal from his side on picking the girl - she was working, it was a job. Ellie was a job for Shawn as well (not to be rude against her, she’s amazing) - it’s all about finding an actor who fits the part they’re playing, who connects with him and who has chemistry with him instantly, because that was what this video needed from their point. Great on-screen chemistry. It was what she was paid to do. Shawn didn’t pick this girl on his own (IF he was even involved in picking the girl at all, chance he might not have been at all is rather big), he didn’t pick the girl in Treat You better on his own, he didn’t pick the girl in Never Be Alone on his own. The team behind the music video did that because that’s their job. Finding an actor who can play the part they want, who can act as they’d like and who can snap into a role that fits the story in the video. And it has nothing to do with what Shawn “prefers” personally when it comes to girls, it was work. 

I get that people can be critical about any artists’ across the worlds music videos and the girls that are mostly - ALL OVER THE WORLD - picked out, because surely there’s a stereotype when it comes to that, but Shawn didn’t pick this girl from some book and said he wanted her. It’s how the music industry is when it comes to music videos and it’s not Shawn nor his team that needs to change, it’s our society when it comes to music videos. It’s everyone in the business of making and casting girls for music videos, movies and so on that needs to change something to have an impact. Because yes, it’s a lot of times the same type of girls, but it’s the industry and not the artists who made the rules. Are the “rules” dumb? Yes. Does it make a whole lot of boys and girls insecure about their looks? Yes. Does it need to be changed? Yes. But that talk is a whole fucking lot bigger than Shawn’s team casting a red haired girl for all three videos.

Also you’re very kind and sweet, thank you. :)

top ten times yuuri katsuki was charming without him noticing

Top Ten Times Yuuri Katsuki Was Charming Without Him Noticing:

10) At a competition a little girl got lost and started crying and he calmed her down and let her ride on his shoulders all the way back to the rink when he went to find her parents

9) A fan gave him some artwork to sign and said ‘sorry, it isn’t very good’ and despite being busy and in the middle of signing autographs he still stopped and took a good few minutes to sincerely compliment her work and style which made her blush so badly

8) At college he organised a study group for people who were struggling on his course to share his notes and ended up unofficially tutoring most of them for free and every single person who attended was a least partially in love with him by the end

7) In the skate club in Detroit one of the ice dancers hurt his leg in practice and so Yuuri offered to help the girl who was left without a partner practice her routine by standing in for him even though he was embarrassed that he didn’t really know the moves well. She was incredibly grateful, he learned a bit of ice dancing and every other skater was insanely jealous of her

6) Once a couple proposed in front of him after one of his competitions and he very sweetly congratulated them and offered to take a photo but ended up being in the photo instead at their insistence

5) He did a guest appearance at an ice skating class for children and was really, really good with the kids and encouraging them with their skating and being generally a wonderful teacher and all the young single parents were sighing over him and looking at each other like ‘he’s mine, I’m calling it first, back off’.

4) He donated a lot of money to a dog shelter in Detroit and there were loads of pictures and videos of him there playing with the puppies and everyone’s hearts collectively melted

3) Once a girl at the skating club didn’t have anyone to go to a fancy dance with her and she was embarrassed to go alone. Since Yuuri knew he was a decent dancer he offered to go with her as friends so that she could still go and it was a really sweet and considerate gesture and they spent the evening having fun and owning everyone else in the room with how well they danced. That girl was the one mentioned in chapter 14 who later invited Yuuri and Phichit to her wedding. She met her future wife at that dance, which she wouldn’t have gone to without Yuuri offering to help her out

2) That time he took the triplets backstage in chapter 12 and everyone was like ‘awwww’

1) Every little thing he did that made Viktor fall even more in love with him over the years which was a lot and happened often

Burning Questions

Chlonath Week Day 5: First Kiss/Holding Hands

~*~

How did you find out my identity?

The first time she asked him, he smiled at her and said “Wouldn’t you like to know?” before walking away.

But Chloe Bourgeois was nothing if not tenacious, so a few days later, she sat beside him in the school courtyard at lunch and asked him again.

“How did I find out?” he asked in the tone of someone who knew very well how, but didn’t feel like telling her. She waited one minute. He said nothing. Five minutes. He hummed to himself. The entire lunch period passed by in relative silence that was, to her utmost frustration, not entirely unpleasant. And when the bell finally rang, he packed up his things and said, “We should do this again sometime.”

Description: Your best friend dragged you to a party. You didn’t know that this party would result in one of the best nights ever

~
You hate parties.

So why would you come to this one?

Oh, that’s right. Your best friend invited you, even though she knew you didn’t like parties.

Why didn’t you refuse? Because your friend said that she’d be “oh so lonely” if you weren’t there.

You knew that was just and excuse to make you come.

And that’s how you ended up here.

A frat party.

There was a lot of people and loud music. Everyone seemed to be having a good time, except for you.

You stood in the corner, holding a red solo cup that you’ve been drinking out of for the past 30 minutes. Everyone was dancing, partying, but here you were, standing in the corner alone like an introvert.

Any time you saw someone looking at you, you looked down at your phone, just to avoid eye contact.

You weren’t a party person. You’re not shy, you just hate parties. Anywhere you turn, there’s someone drunk or high or puking all over someone’s shoes. Not only that, but parties just weren’t your thing.

Friendly Neighborhood Spiderman

Requested. [I feel like this was awful, because I struggle with comedy. But I tried]

Song or Quote : “I’m not a damsel, not tonight at least.” & “ Do you even watch the news? Come on, I’m Spider-Man. You know, stringing up criminals and saving damsels?“

“What’s a pretty girl like you doin’ all by yourself in these mean ole streets, huh?” 

[Y/N]’s head swiveled to her left, stepping sideways off the sidewalk to get out of reach. She narrowed her eyes, this guy looked like trouble and reeked of cheap booze and menthol. “Going home.” 

The way his eyes raked over her, made [Y/N] feel uneasy. She knew her time was coming to cross paths with the crooks of the city. It had only been a little less than a month since she had moved here. But, [Y/N] could bet that walking home alone in the dark was the sure way to come across one. 

He smirked towards her, his teeth oddly glistening in the flickering street light. “Takin’ some late night pilate classes?” The man’s eyes skimmed over her gym bag that was slung over her body, “What kind of goods you got in there, hon?”  

If asked what her worst trait would be, it would be that she was extremely outspoken. She always struggled to keep her mouth shut in situations that called for it to stay closed. This was one of those times that she blatantly ignored her better judgement. Squinting her eyes, she cocked a brow. “I don’t know what I’m more shocked about. The fact that you believe that you’ll be able to mug me or the fact that you know what pilates is.” Taking a step back when he stepped forward, she narrowed her eyes. “And if you must know, I take mixed martial arts, so believe me when I say despite the vast height and weight difference between us, I could kick your ass with my eyes closed.” 

“You a bit ballsy, ain’t you?” He growled while he cracked his fingers, “I’m going to make you eat those words that’s been comin’ out that pretty little mouth.” 

[Y/N], you should probably stop while you’re ahead. Gasping like she was scared, her hands flew to her mouth. Pretending to shake, she squealed out. “Oh no, oh my gosh, I’m so sorry. Please, I’m really sorry. I didn’t mean any of that. Oh, please don’t hurt me.” Or not

Before the mugger could respond, the sound of laughing made them both jump. Searching in the dark to find the source of laughter, they finally looked up to the fire escape of the closest building. Standing on the railing, with one hand propped up against the bricked building, the other was placed on his stomach while he was bent over still laughing. 

“Oh man, I just love sarcasm.” He laughed, “It’s like punching someone in the face but with words.” 

[Y/N] squinted her eyes, who the fuck

Before she could get the chance to ask, the mugger growled out in anger. “And just what the hell are you supposed to be?” 

“Ditto,” she muttered. 

Jumping from the fire escape, he landed gracefully in front of them. Shrugging his shoulders, “Do you even watch the news?” Whoever the masked man was, sounded incredibly insulted. Groaning, he shook his head. “Come on, I’m Spiderman. You know stringing up criminals and saving damsels?” Leaning against the mugger, [Y/N] could only assume he winked in her direction while he clicked his tongue and pointed towards her.

"I’m not a damsel, not tonight at least.” She crossed her arms and rolled her eyes, “This guy’s a joke, I could take him with or without you.” Seriously, [Y/N]? Do you ever think before you speak? It’s called a goddamn filter.

Spiderman shook his head, “Man, she’s a little feisty.” Looking up at the mugger, he snickered. “Isn’t she?” 

“Get your damn hands off me.” The guy yelled, slinging Spiderman off his shoulder, he pulled a knife out from his jacket. “Come on Spiderman let’s see what you got kid.” 

Spiderman chuckled, “Funny you mention the whole kid thing because this kid is going to kick your ass, dude.” Flicking his wrist, a web shot out and landed onto the mugger’s hand with the knife. Flicking his wrist again, he webbed the knife out his hand. “Oh shame you don’t have that anymore.” 

[Y/N] yelped slightly, “Yo, is that stuff coming out of you?!”

“What? No! Ugh, I made it.” He groaned, looking down at his hands, he started moving them towards the device on his wrist. “I engineered it to-” Getting cut off by the mugger yanking back on the web, Spiderman flew forward. Before he made it close enough for the mugger to grab him, he shot out another web and stopped himself. Chuckling, “You’re going to have to do better than that if you want to get me.” 

“You some piece of work kid.” The mugger growled. 

“Yeah, yeah.” He snorted. 

[Y/N] felt sort of freaked out. Biting her lip, she tried to process what was going on. First, she decides to walk home alone, in the dark from the gym. Then, a creepy man stops her when she passes an alley. Next, she decides to be mouthy because she’s always been that way. And now, a man kid person in a spandex suit was trying to save her. “Is this? Is this,” moving her hand in their direction, she raised a brow, “normal?” 

Spiderman glanced in her direction before webbing the guy up against the building, pointing at him, he scolded. “Don’t steal, the Government doesn’t like competition.” Turning towards [Y/N], he casually walked towards her. “Is what normal?” 

“That….this whole thing? I mean is this normal?” She motioned towards his suit and then the web. “Is it normal for a kid vigilante to be running the streets at night in spandex?” 

“Don’t insult the suit, man.” Spiderman ran his hand down his torso, “This is a one of a kind.” 

Squinting her eyes, she muttered, “I don’t doubt that.” 

He tossed his head, shaking his head. Looking back towards her, he fake gasped. “I’m sorry, did I just roll my eyes out loud?”

“I can’t even see your eyes!” 

“Stop insulting me.”

Feeling frustrated, “I’m not insulting you, I’m describing you!” 

Before Spiderman could have a chance to respond, the sound of heavy footsteps and chains rattling interrupted their small argument. Instinctively, he stepped protectively in front of [Y/N]. 

“What the hell is going on out there?” A voice yelled from the alley.

Tony, get your ass out here and get me down!” The mugger yelled.

“Hey, I know a Tony.” He looked over towards [Y/N] nodding. “He’s a good friend-” stopping short, they both gulped at the sight of the stacked guy emerging from the alley with heavy artillery. “That….that um, that is not the same Tony I know.” Turning around, he shot webbing towards [Y/N], pulling her in close, he whispered, “Hold on.” 

“I’m sorry, do what?”

With no response, they were both zipping through the air. [Y/N] could feel her heart leaping out of her mouth when her eyes adjusted to the height at which they were flying at. Yelping, she held on tight and closed her eyes. She felt like they were in the air for hours but that was due to the fact that she was incredibly terrified of heights. 

Once she felt solid ground on under her feet, she retracted herself from the kid and fell to the ground. Her chest was heaving from her adrenaline coursing through her body. “Why did you think that was a good idea?” 

“I mean it was either run away or be shot and I’ve got a lot of life to live so I ran with option B.” Sitting on the ground in front of her, he chuckled, “And normally my problem is that I have really fantastic bad ideas.” 

Clutching her chest to try to slow down her heart rate, she flickered him a look. “Like dressing up in spandex and looking for trouble?” Taking a deep breath, she sighed. “Shouldn’t you be playing video games or hooking up with girls after curfew?” 

Spiderman reached up to the scratch the back of his head, wanting to laugh at how ridiculous the last part sounded. If only this girl knew who he was under his mask. “Yeah the thing about that is I don’t know how to act my age because I’ve never been this age before.” 

Standing up, she dusted herself off. “Right.” Looking around her to make sure nothing fell out of her bag, she looked at the masked hero. “I guess I should thank you for saving me.” 

Standing up, he shook his head. “It’s not really a problem. It’s what I do.” 

“I suppose so.” Chewing on her lip, “Who are you? I mean I know your Spiderman, but you’ve got have a face under that mask.” 

Stepping backwards, he chuckled. “I’m just your friendly neighborhood Spiderman.” Slinging a web, he saluted. “I’ll see you around.” And then he was off, leaving [Y/N] staring after him. Maybe moving to this city wasn’t so bad. 

Kaisoo mega post @ EXOrDium in Mexico 042717

Finally I arrived home yesterday! I was very excited to comeback and tell you guys all my experiences at the EXOrDium in Mexico. Unfortunately I did not record a lot because I wanted to enjoy the concert 100%. This gonna be my kaisoo post, if you want to read my entiere experience I’ll update it soon. And I’m very sorry if this a little bit late, I wanted to post it ASAP but I was so tired. TT And thank you so much for all  of you wishing me fun!!

So first things first, yeah Ksoo have the best ass and thights in e.xo like man he has the perfect body ¡his shoulders are so narrow! He’s very cute and JI is a ball of happiness and very handsome! TT They look the same as in TV. 

Well how you already saw in some photos or fancams they whispered into each other ear at the first ment, Ksoo literally was kissing JI’s ear, like he whispered REALLY close, I was in shook because I watched in the past a lot of photos/fancams of it (whisper is something very common for them) but watching it live is really something else, Ksoo and JI really get REALLY close to each other to whisper more close than necesary in my opinion lol.

They smiled at each other A LOT through all the concert, like if they saw each other at any moment they would smile ASAP.

At the acoustic part JI were staring at Ksoo almost all the time he were speaking or singing but it’s so unique, he stares at him in this way in particular, I can’t describe it but when someone says JI have this special stare for Ksoo is true 100%. But it wasnt one sided, if you could see with how much pride and fondness Ksoo stares at JI when he’s dancing, like everything disapear for him when JI is doing his solos, Ksoo couldnt stop staring and have like this little secret smile just reserved for him.

At Unfair meanwhile Ksoo were inside the TVBox JI went and pretended to knock the door (idk what was he thinking like come on JI thats a tv wtf) trying to get ksoo attention then there were a part where Ksoo, JI and Mseok disapered for like 1-2 minutes inside of the refigerator box. 

Ksoo walked by and pat JI’s back. I don’t really remember in what song this was but they were wearing the outfit they wear for overdose in concert (black shine jacket?)

I don’t quite remember when this moment happen if when Ksoo and JI found each other in the middle of the stage or they were standing side by side but i’m pretty sure it happend because they smiled at each other with so much emotion and fondness, like they were so happy and enjoying of sharing the same stage. I was smiling like a fool the entire time it was happening so that’s why i remember it.

They stand next to each other when signing Angel and were waving at the fans.

These were all the Kaisoo moments I can recall and that I saw but now I want to add something really interesting I want to share with all you guys. So you can skip this is you just want just know what moments happened at the concert.

anonymous asked:

Can you pls write about Candy going to sleep in her boyfriend house for the first time(can be nsfw and fluffy if you want...)??

That moment when you were going to post your finished work but then DELETED IT AND WANTED TO KYS-//shot

yeah so I accidentally deleted my first headcanons? AND GDI I MISS THEM ?? these are my second headcanons ?? And I forgot half of what I wrote - especially on Lysander’s part. Who knows, maybe they’ll be just as good ? Not super NSFW, actually ?? kinda like hints so - not under the cut. Anyways, enjoy.

Nathaniel

  • Tries his best NOT to remember the first time Candy came over to his “house”.
  • Honestly,, Nath isn’t very ready to sleep with Candy ? coming over, sure but sleeping,, 
  • Babies Candy a lot like; “Do you need help” or  "Would you like for me to get this for you?“ 
  • White often follows along, don’t let her be the third wheel.
  • Majority of the time spent is in the living room
  • Cleans up after activities, regardless if Candy wants to help or not, he can’t stand when his house is dirty.
  • Binge watches movies and some crime documentaries, honestly he can stay up very long.
  • Good at making popcorn for their movies tbh
  • Doesn’t initiate the makeout sessions, not intentionally at least-
  • All calls are going to voicemail.
  • Gives very loving kisses, especially surprise ones.
  • Tolerates the window being cracked at night, other than that - no.
  • White cuddles on Candy’s lap a lot, Nath has given some “playful” glares.
  • If Candy’s scared of White, he’d try to assure her she doesn’t scratch and she’s well-trained. 
  • Makeouts are usually in his room, on his bed, for “more space”
  • So many damn pillows, all full of feathers.
  • The windows are NEVER open during spring,, he will honestly DIE if they’re opened
  • Tbh if Candy falls asleep on him, he tries his best not to move and interrupt her - he’s kinda shy to it.
  • Would nearly fall back if Candy wore that nightie, tries to maintain himself. “Y-You’re going to wear that to bed..? Not like it’s a bad thing j-just more of a question…" 
  • Unlike last time with his boxers he’d wear some pajama pants and some white tank top.
  • Holds Candy very close to him, he’s just loves feeling her warmth and her close to him.
  • Goes to sleep about a half hour later, kinda has trouble sleeping.

Castiel

  • Might be canon that Castiel lives near Candy, possibly a few blocks away. 
  • Doesn’t feel awkward being around Candy, what’s there to be awkward about.

  • Plays his guitar for her sometimes, but gets embarrassed if Candy catches him singing in that low voice of his–
  • Smacks Candy’s butt occasionally, lmao what’s gonna stop him?

  • Makeouts are usually on the couch - he doesn’t care where, as long as it’s happening.
  • Wears his ponytail up, he’s that kinda guy that gets hot easily.
  • Always kicks the blanket off, Candy doesn’t need to battle for it.
  • Hopes that she didn’t pack her bag, wants her to wear his clothes.
  • If Candy was wearing that nightie, Castiel would actually be impressed with it, not red at all. Just a smirk as he says; “…Oh my, such a bad girl…whatever happened to that little girl, Candy?" 
  • Wears his red boxers to sleep and some black tanktop. Cassy looks sexy af with that ponytail too.
  • Candy would have to sleep on his arm while his body is sprawled out, they’d have some good sleep on that big bed of his.

  • Talks about his childhood a lot though,, brings it up in one of those deep conversations
  • Doesn’t mind if Candy walks in on him singing in his room, thinks she should knock though.
  • Would probably offer going to the movies and some dinner date - he can’t stay at home like this,,

  • Such a dad to Cuddles even alone with Candy, checks on Cuddles often just as much as he checks on her.
  • Very bold, actually. He starts the makeout sessions
  • That type of guy that would wear some long sleeves and shorts not to be too hot or too cold.

  • If Candy wore the nightie to bed, Lysander would be a little red but smile. “…Seems as if you’re always beautiful, Candy.”
  • Can’t really cook, but has some microwavable things to make.
  • Feels better a few hours later, doesn’t feel nervous as much as he did before.
  • Cuddles is gonna be in his lap if they’re watching movies, no buts - Cuddles makes the choices here. 
  • Would wear an un-buttoned long-sleeved shirt and some shorts, similar to what he wore at the beach. But sexier for some reason.
  • Candy would probably sleep on his chest and Lysander would have an arm around her, just comfortable.
  • Sleeps in about five minutes, doesn’t take too long.

Armin

  • Probably asked his parents and Alexy to leave somewhere, just anywhere but home at that time. 
  • His mom honestly made a kinky remark about Candy spending the night and he nearly died inside.
  • Isn’t very nervous but his first thought was “Where’s Candy gonna sleep?”
  • Didn’t even think about her pajamas, whatever she’s wearing he’s sure she’ll look good in it.
  • It’s always gonna be fun at his place, there’s no awkwardness what so ever.
  • A lot more fun with him than it is intimate, he’s super chill with this.
  • Had a nerf battle and gave Candy a darth vader helmet for protection. He didn’t wear one because he’s a rebel ™
  • Didn’t realize he was gonna actually SLEEP with HIM until she told him…then he got embarrassed.
  • Plays video games with her and watches comedies and some horror movies. 
  • If Candy beats him, he doesn’t really care. He’ll get over it…the next hour.
  • Makeout sessions usually happen on the bed, he doesn’t care where it is - as long as they’re fine with it.
  • Can’t really watch a romantic without wanting to barf tbh, please don’t.
  • Favorite thing to do is hold Candy from behind and attack her cheek with kisses.
  • Y'all already know this boy will have tickle fights to the point where her eyes water, he’s probably tickled her sides when they played games to win.
  • Shows Candy some tricks he taught Rocket.
  • Honestly, his house is nicely decorated - his mother being an interior designer. 
  • Actually has a lit room ?? A desk, laptop, nice bed, some action figures (like the ones you get from buying video games), and posters. 
  • If she was wearing that nightie, he’d stop in his tracks. He’d be very red but try to throw some kinky comment in there; “…You must not think that’s dangerous to wear around me, Sweetness."  hOT DAMN
  • Wears some black starwars t-shirt and black boxers.
  • The most intimate it’s going to get is him having Candy sleep on his chest and him being sprawled out in some awkward position, he gets too hot during the night.
  • Out like a lightbulb, super tired.

Kentin

  • Is actually ready for this, he’s been wanting to take this relationship to the next level gdi.
  • Cleaned the whole house before she came, not like it wasn’t very clean before - he’s gotta do it.
  • Gave himself a victory fist when she accepted, half of him hopes she understands he wants to sleep with her.
  • So happy, probably hugged and kissed her when he let her in. 
  • Cookie would be excited to see her, probably would try to pounce on her a bit.
  • Makeout sessions are usually in his room, he starts them off of a complement he’s given her.
  • A lot more submissive than he is dominant, no lie.

  • Would honestly leave the house, probably go on a walk with her and Cookie - probably to a nearby park to play at.
  • Tries to bake with Candy. If Candy can’t bake, he’d try to teach her how to bake with him. 
  • Is such a proud mom when she bakes something. Even if she fails, he’ll be proud she tried.
  • Would be ontop of Candy if they’re cuddling, he’d rest his head on her chest and she’d pet him. Just silence, really.
  • Would honestly give Candy too many sweets, especially cupcakes.
  • Takes some pictures of Candy and Cookie together, it’s like one of the cutest things to him.
  • Plays video games with her that Armin gave her, mainly fighting games. Lets Candy win sometimes.

  • Will ignore the phone as if it doesn’t exist, better to text him. 
  • Has a calm colored rooms, consists of light brown and green colors. Has one of those neoclassical desks, a pretty big bed, and loads of pillows on it. He’s got his own stuffed bear.
  • If Candy wore that nightie in front of her ?? Good god, he’d be very red, actually. Y-You’re gonna…G-Goodness…you’re just…so beautiful,“ 
  • Honestly, he’d wear a loose black tank top and some green boxers. He looks no different but he still looks adorable.
  • He’d have his arms firmly around her and she’d probably have herself pressed against him, her arms would probably be loose around him.

Ok so as I said I have many feeling about this, and they are not good, I’m going to talk about aother video first then come back to this one.

Some info first, this is Laine Ashker, or Lainey on Insta, and the horse is Debakey he’s a 4 year old Holsteiner.

Ok she got the ride on him on Apr 20th, and a week later she posts this video to her instagram- 

A post shared by Lainey Ashker (@laineyea) on Apr 27, 2017 at 11:27am PDT

Let’s go through this. The first jump looks to be 3′ or so, why on earth are they jumping a 4 year old that hight?
He’s obviously over jumping it by a lot, but she knows he over jumps smaller stuff, in the first video she posted of him they were jumping him over smaller stuff then that and he was over jumping it. So why would you put the jump up and make it a oxer when you know he over jumps? He obviously doesn’t know how much effort he needs to put into getting over the jumps, so keep him at the smaller hight until he figures it out then raise the jumps, he’s only 4 years old there is no need to rush him like this.

Then the second jump in the video, here’s a still-

So I’d like to remind you that’s she’s had him for a week at this point, that he’s only 4, and that he’s not very sure about “normal” jumps. So all of that begs the question, why are introducing him to him to stuff like skinnys? To me a reaction like this would tell me I’d rushed him, and that he’s not ready for things like this. I’d certainly not post it to Instagram being proud of it.

Ok and finally to the first video. At this point she knows he will do weird things when faced with new things, like in the skinny video, so why on earth would you ask him to do a bank jump? Especially a two part one, she is so fucking lucky he managed to catch himself before the second bank, he would have landed on his neck. And when he landed that front left twists so much that when I watched this for the first time a had one horrible moment when I though he had broken that leg. I also want to know why she didn’t just take him down the second back by itself, it’s smaller, and if he did someone like this there is no chance of him hurting himself on the second part of the element.

So basically I think he’s to young to being doing any of this, she’s rushing him badly, and that he may end up injured if she keeps pushing him.


@clickerhorse you wanted me to write about this so here it is! Sorry I didn’t yesterday but I got home and crashed.

Emimike Youtubers AU
  • The Crispino twins have a famous Youtube channel where they explain and talk about Italian culture and language
  • Emil has a vlog channel where he posts his adventures travelling and doing extreme sports
  • His next trip is scheduled to be in Italy, where he’s going to climb the Alps (and vlog about it, of course)
  • Because he likes researching the places he’s about to visit, he starts looking around for Italian Youtube channels
  • He stumbles upon a “Things foreigners do in Italy that you shouldn’t do”
  • He watches the full 15 minutes video without understanding a word because all he can do is look at the beautiful boy with light brown hair and violet eyes and the most beautiful and cute Italian accent he’s ever heard
  • He hastily writes them an email explaining he’ll be in Italy soon and he’d love to do collab videos with them
  • Thank god Sara reads the email (Michele would have just trashed it without even reading it)
  • She actually follows Emil’s channel sometimes and thinks he’s a really fun guy and collab’ing with him might bring them a lot of new followers
  • She accepts and books a room for her and Michele in the Alps in the same hotel where Emil will be staying 
  • She doesn’t tell Michele anything until two days before they need to leave
  • Michele is furious but tags along anyway
  • He regrets it right away when he finds out he’s afraid of heights and he has to climb a fucking mountain
  • Emil encourages him, tells him it’s perfectly safe
  • They of course vlog the whole thing that will eventually be edited and posted to Emil’s channel
  • They manage to get through the day without any of them getting hurt, but Michele is fucking pissed because Sara had a lot of fun and he thinks she might be developing feelings towards this guy
  • What does she even see in him
  • The next day they all head back to Napoli
  • Emil and Sara talk the whole time and it’s clear they hit it off
  • Michele is ready to punch a wall
  • Emil brings them flowers and chocolates when he gets to their house to film the video that will be posted to the twins’ channel
  • He has to pronounce Italian words and sentences and Michele bitches about every little mistake he makes
  • (their followers think it’s hilarious and it’s just a persona Michele has built for himself for their channel’s sake, but in fact he’s really like that)
  • Emil has to go back to the Czech Republic
  • Michele feels something that if he was a little bit less of a dork he would identify as “regret over being so pissy the whole time and not trying to spend some quality time with the beautiful Czech boy”
  • The followers of both channels come together to create a new joined fandom because they didn’t miss the way Emil looked at Michele the whole time with those puppy eyes and they ship it hard
  • Emil and Michele are both oblivious about this, but Sara finds a fanart of them and starts following what people on tumblr are saying
  • She doesn’t actually want to read fanfiction about her own twin being fucked by Emil (though she occasionally reads some of the fluffy stuff), but she makes an incognito sideblog where she shares all Emimike content (that’s the official ship name) because honestly she ships it hard
  • (and it’s not like she was ever interested in Emil herself since she prefers girls)
  • After a few months Emil finds out about people shipping them and he retweets a sfw fanart of them holding hands and captions it “big mood”
  • Emimike shippers absolutely lose their shit
  • Sara shows it to Michele and he just about drops dead on the spot
  • The next morning Emil shows up at their door and Sara leaves them to talk 
  • When she gets back after two hours (which she thought should have been enough), she hears Michele and Emil and they’re very much not talking
  • She leaves again as soon as she realizes what’s happening
  • Months later Emil posts a video called “We’re engaged!”

Peter meeting Tony's son peter Parker

(I made Peter younger in this one, hope thats alright anon!)

_______________________

“So do you wanna eat something with me after the meeting?” asks Peter and Tony looks at him.

How do you say no to someone if you really wanna see yes?

“I… i don’t know…” whispers Tony back and Fury looks at him.

“Want to share it with the class, Stark?” asks Fury and Tony slides a bit down in his seat.

Steve sends him an angry glare. Normally Tony wouldn’t mind, but after the civil war… he tries really hard to be good. And the Guardians are new in their team…well they aren’t really in there team…but helping them.

Tony loves them. Because they always treat him good.

“Come on.” whispers Peter and he smiles so beautiful, that Tony nods.

Steves glares again. And even Bucky growls.

*

“Pepper please i need you to help me.” whines Tony an hour later when he is back at his apartment. Peter is going to meet him in exactly 20 minutes and he has no one to watch after his son.

“And you know that i love to look after Peter. But i’m in Tokyo what do you expect me to do?” laughs Pepper and Tony smiles at her.

She isn’t Peters real mother but she treated him always so well. Peter loves his Aunty a lot.

“What about Rhodey?” asks Tony and Pepper rolls her eyes. She smiles fondly.

“You and i both know that he is laying behind me in the bed.” laughs Pepper and Tony can see that Rhodey holds up a thumb now in the video feed. Tony giggles.

“You two are way too cute.” sighs Tony and Pepper winks at him.

“What about next week? Rhodey and i would take Peter then.” says Pepper and Tony nods.

“Well i guess i have to cancel the date. I mean i could give Peter to Steve or anyone. But i still…don’t trust them.” says Tony and Pepper nods.

“I understand that. And i’m sorry.” says Pepper and Tony shakes his head.

“Not your fault. I wished…i just wished Peter had a real family.” says Tony and he tries to blink his tears away.

He hears a door then and quickly says his goodbyes to Pepper and Rhodey.

“Peter i told you not to open any doors when…” begins Tony and when he enters the living room he stops.

Because there are two Peters in his living room. oh no.

“Daddy look! I found a friend.” says his son and grins proudly. Peter sits in front of him on the couch and gets his hair done.

Peter loves it to braid anyones hair. And now the big Peter as a few little pigtails. Tony can’t help it, but he giggles.

“Hey Tony.” says Peter and he smiles so beautifully again.

“Hey.” whispers Tony back and he needs to sit down.

Well you see. Normally nobody gets to meet his son. Pepper and Rhodey are the godparents, so of course Peter is their little sunshine. His son also knows the avengers…but he doesn’t like them anymore…after everything.

And since that he is very carefully with that. Not everybody knows that he has a son.

“I didn’t know you had such a beautiful kid.” says Peter and the little Peter giggles.

“Daddy he said i’m beautiful!” shrieks Petey and Tony smiles.

“Course you are.” he answers easily, because his son is beautiful, thank you.

“Beautiful just like his dad.” says Peter and Tony looks down. It doesn’t seems like a problem for Peter, that Tony has a son. He seems like he adores it.

Tony blushes.

“He also told me his name was Peter.” says the big Peter and Tony nods. Well what a coincidence.

“Daddy calls me Petey and sometimes sunshine.” explains Petey then and Peter laughs.

“That fits you really well! Can you tell me how old you are?” asks Peter than and his son holds five fingers up.

“I’m five already! Means im almost allowed in the lab and can build my own r-r-robot! But daddy says i can start whenever i want he won’t pr-pressure me into something.” says Petey and Peter looks back at Tony.

“Sounds like Tony is a good dad?” he says and Petey nods.

“He is the best.” giggles Petey and blows his daddy a kiss. Tony smiles at his son.

“So what do you say Junior do you wanna go to the park with your dad and me? We can eat something together later.” says Peter and Petey jumps up and down.

“Can…can we go to the swings? I love them!” says Petey and Peter laughs at that.

“We can do anything you want.” he says and when Tony reaches for their coats, Peter helps his son to tie his shoes. Tony smiles down at them.

Half a hour later they are sitting on a park bench and Petey is on his swings.

“Daddy, Peter! Look!” squeaks Peter every two minutes and whenever he does it Peter and Tony wave towards him.

“So…” starts Tony then and fiddles with his hands.

“I like him.” answers Peter easily and Tony looks back at him.

“You do?” asks Tony carefully and Peter smiles.

“Of course i do! He is just like you. How could i not love him?” he asks and Tony chokes.

When Petey yells again Peter stands up and goes over to him. Peter takes the little boy on his lap and starts to swing a bit higher. But Tony can see how he holds Petey tightly and is careful with him.

Mabye…yeah maybe Peter is somebody who would treat Tony and especially his son like they deserve.

So my grandmother and I went into town today to hit up the Walmart for corn meal. She warned me that a lot of brands mix a little wheat flour in, so we’d have to check the ingredients. Since Deacon doesn’t have any experience with corn meal, I figured I’d give him a little test and have him check the bags before we looked at the ingredients. He alerted to every bag on the shelf.

My grandmother thought this was the Best. Thing. Ever. She was so delighted to have him alert and then she’d look at the bag and say “yes! he’s right! check the next one!” (video is him checking the second to last one on the shelf). Because of this we gathered quite a crowd of spectators, one of which was a store employee, who ran a few aisles over and brought back a bag of gluten-free cornbread muffin mix for him to check. He said it was safe, at which point everyone watching collectively lost their shit. You would have thought we’d just won the Stanley cup. Strangers were hugging. It was unreal.

So afterward I held an impromptu Q&A session since none of them had ever seen a service dog before, and then a police officer who was watching told me all about the Malinois their force had, and even got choked up talking about the dog’s passing last year.

Since getting home, my grandmother has proudly told this story to every single person that called the house this afternoon (she’s a very popular lady), whether it be family members, quilting friends, or the preacher, one of which responded, delighted, that her daughter had already heard the story from her husband who was doing the grocery shopping that morning.

Small town life, ya’ll.

He’s Like the Mona Lisa

Marinette sighed, staring at the back of Adrien’s head as though it was a particularly difficult physics problem. Which she supposed it was.

‘Why…’ she pondered for the millionth time since she had discovered his secret.

'Why don’t Chat and Adrien look alike?’

How come you don't like Taylor Nicole Dean?

I don’t dislike her as a person and I actually really used to love her youtube channel. It was my favorite, I’d stay up to watch her uploads fresh off the press.  But she pretty quickly got pretty problematic.  

I think it’s because there is a lot of pressure on pet tubers.  Your fans want to know more and more and want you to get more and more, which makes impulse purchases and the addiction of buying animals all that stronger.  So I’ll keep this list short and sweet.

  • Supports Brian Byrzack (or however you spell it.  look up his tag you’ll see whats wrong with him)
  • Impulse purchases animals
  • Owns animals for less than a few days or only one day, does a bit of google research and makes entire videos about the animal care (which would be okay but she portrays herself as the know all end all)
  • Her hedgehogs are in too small of enclosures 
  • Cheese needs a tank of at least 250 gallons and is still only in a 150.  
  • Her fish tanks are overstocked in general
  • Betta sororities are generally a terrible idea, especially when given so little plant/hide cover
  • She bought one snake, and then impulse bought another within one month and yet another shortly after that
  • Ive heard her snake habitats aren’t great?
  • Handles her reptiles immediately after purchase and doesn’t give them the week to two weeks they need to adjust
  • Impulse bought a leopard gecko
  • Did i mention she impulse purchases animals all the time
  • There was the seahorse disaster where she nearly killed them because she didn’t have the time to be able to handle all the delicate care needed
  • Generally is taking on too much of a load but isn’t anywhere near stopping because her new pet videos get the most views
  • PURCHASING MANY MANY ANIMALS AND SETTING/STOCKING UP A 150 GALLON TANK WITH EXPENSIVE SENSITIVE FISH WHEN SHE KNOW SHE IS MOVING ACROSS THE COUNTRY IN LESS THAN A YEAR

“Youtube is my job, taking care of my animals is my job, it’s okay for me to have this many animals”

This is her argument, and the argument of many of her fans.  But everyone has a limit to what they can handle and I worry she is taking on too much.  Not mentioning it is severely irresponsible or her to purchase animals of this quantity when she knows full well she is moving.  I will not be surprised when some fish (and hopefully nothing other than fish) don’t make the journey because of it.

Ballet Boy

word count: 8,796

When Dan was little he used to spend his Friday afternoons in the corner of the local gym, watching his older sister do pirouette after pirouette with the other girls of her ballet class. He would wonder how she didn’t get dizzy from all the spinning, because he couldn’t even walk straight after only three turns, let alone do a cartwheel or one of those amazing jumps.

Ellen was three years older than him, which was why their parents had told her to look after Dan when they came home late on Fridays. Of course, she never would miss a lesson just to look after her brother. Oh no. With the permission of her teacher she took Dan with her, sat him down in the corner with his brand new game boy, telling him to play one of those weird Pokémon games.

The first time he had come with her he had quickly discarded his video game in order to watch her dance. Dan loved watching her dance. She always looked so happy whenever she did something correctly. The other girls were really nice as well. They all were between five and ten years old. Older girls had class on another day in a different group. The advanced group. Dan had seen them dance once at a show of his sister. He knew Ellen wanted to train a lot so she could join them when she turned eleven.

Amelia: Lin Manuel Miranda x Reader

This is based off of @ourforgottenboleros series ‘Amelia’, which is AMAZING and you should go read it RIGHT NOW because oh my god it’s just so quality. ( @amelialuzmiranda )

My thing takes place seven years later, two months after Hamilton has premiered on Broadway. Yes, I wrote fanfiction of fanfiction but shhhh.

Warnings: None

Disclaimer: I know nothing about subways :)

Word Count: 1945


Hamilton took seven years for Lin to write, and you were there every step of the way. Five years ago, the two of you were married. Amy was the flower girl and a bridesmaid. She insisted on being both and you could you say no to that? Three years ago, you opened a second gallery in Brooklyn. It focused on more modern art pieces while your original focused on photography. You had never seen Lin so proud of you in your entire life. You were building a brand name.

One year ago, Hamilton opened at the Public Theater. Two months ago was Lin’s opening night on Broadway. Everything moved slowly, but at the same time was passing you by in an instant. You had always been pretty good at taking things slow.

On this particular Friday, Amelia had been talking about going to the theatre from the moment she woke up in the morning.

anonymous asked:

okay! so i know your a total nerd and i love love LOVE that little "Jokes" fic you've got goin on AO3, but I was wondering if you could do an ironlord/starquill fic??? I dunno if you could fit it into that one, but i'd love something with them-- comic or mcu universe or some combination??? pretty please?

Tony is eight years old when he hears it the first time, sitting on the floor of his mom’s closet, beaming up at her as she sways around and sings along– holding up dresses for his approval.  It’s funny because it’s the middle of July, but his mom looks too happy, her hair a mess of dark curls as she sways along with the jazzy upbeat R&B tune.  

They’re interrupted when Jarvis steps in, mouth quirked in amusement, a tray of water and glasses in hand.  “Forgive the interruption, ma’am.”

“Nonsense, J!” Maria smiles and holds out a hand to him.

He scrambles to set the tray aside on one of the small, fringe ottomans in the vast closet as she pulls him in between the racks, swaying with him, head falling back as he pushes her into an awkward twirl.  Jarvis laughs despite himself, eyes bright and graying at the temples.  Tony laughs too.

“What would my wife say, Mrs. Stark?” Jarvis smiles.

“That I need to keep my whiley hands to myself, Jarvis.” Maria smacks a kiss to Jarvis’ cheek and twirls away, still bouncing on the toes of her feet as she makes her way over to where Tony is clutching a pair of her shoes in his lap.  “Come here, mijo.”

Tony pushes to his feet; he barely reaches her hip, but she takes his hand and starts spinning him around in time with the song.  He ends up standing on the tops of her feet, her hands in his, as she rocks him back and forth, mouthing the words down at him.

“As we danced in the night,” she smiles, all delight and bright eyes.  “Remember how the stars stole the night away.”

*

When his parents die in a car crash, Tony gets blind drunk and hacks into one of the SI satellites he knows is orbiting somewhere out of atmo and wires an old boombox of Rhodey’s to it and streams out an endless loop of classics and not-so-classic classics as he clutches to Dum-E’s extended strut.  When the first beats of Earth, Wind & Fire start playing, he closes his eyes and smiles.

He shut it down the next day.

*

The thing about Tony’s taste in music is that it has always had a wide range.  He grew up with a mother who loved classical pieces as much as she loved the blues and jazz.  His father had a more limited musical palate, when he wasn’t working in complete silence, and it tended to stick to more big band sounds that reminded him of older times.  He’d always been very loud, and very disparaging of Tony’s decision to blast rock’n roll in his room as loud as he could, though Tony remembers some very rare, very fond moments when Howard would smile and roll his eyes whenever he spotted whatever new vinyl Tony had brought home with him after the long months away at prep school.

By the time Tony got to MIT, he already had amassed an incredibly stupid collection– the worn Bing Crosby records lining up right next to Led Zeppelin– and it only grew from there.

Tony has mood music.  Certain things he listens to when he needs to get other things done.  AC/DC and Black Sabbath and Aerosmith when he’s sciencing the shit out of something.  Dulcet croons of Freddie and Louis when he’s drowning in paperwork.  Pop when the mood– or the liquor– strikes him hard enough.  

Africa by Toto and Hot Blooded by Foreigner are his go-to shitfaced jams.  

He’s gotten high on more things than he cares to think about in his life– what can he say? He was a product of the 80s.  But these days he restricts it to an occasional hit on a blunt, and Marvin Gaye is always what he grooves to.

But R&B– the Commodores, George Benson, the Temptations– are the artists he’s mourned to since 1991.

*

It is days after Steve sent him a letter and a flip phone.  He’s sitting with Rhodey and Vision, staring up at the endless sea of stars above the Compound, a bottle passed between him and Rhodes but not Vision, when he remembers that stupid little satellite player and wonders what songs is playing in between the vast spaces of black right now while FRIDAY pipes some indie rock bullshit overhead that Vision likes.

He laughs at the thought and Rhodey lifts a brow.  “Just thinking.  About space.  You think aliens have a favorite Spice Girl?”

Rhodey groans.

*

In the aftermath of Civil War, Tony throws himself at other projects when he isn’t busy with UN delegations and touring the world, the shiny star of the Accords.  Pepper is shockingly pleased– and probably a bit worried– with the amount of tech R&D start pushing out.  They’ll be set for the next three years and then some, at the rate he’s going, so she gently chides him away from it.

So Tony works on more overarching projects.  Works with the UN on globalizing green energy.  Contacts Gates about cheaper way to make vaccines.  Then, when Rhodey puts him in contact with a woman at NASA named Carol, he starts pushing funding toward some of their space expeditions.

“What about a communicator?” Tony asks her one day, spinning in his chair, the unamused purse of her lips belied only by the bright look of her eyes as she watches him over the video projection.  “Like, we sent out a floaty time capsule and we’ve got some long distance boomers up there, but what about something better?  Bigger?  To catch someone’s attention?”

He’s gotta fill his time somehow.  

Carol tilts her head, considering what it is that he’s offering, and smiles.  “What did you have in mind?”

Overhead, the faint strum of guitar makes a wickedly delighted grin spread over his face.

Tony doesn’t expect a lot of things these days.  

Or, rather, Tony tries not to expect a lot of things these days.  He’s positive that it’s just sheer dumb luck that things have been working so well since Siberia, that his small team of three has grown marginally bigger over the last six months, Peter and Bruce and Thor and Stephen joining in with the merry band of miserable fuckers that come and go at the Compound like it’s a damn motel. 

Though, admittedly, they all make the place considerably less miserable.  And Tony doesn’t miss the way Rhodey keeps hinting that Carol might be making a “transfer” soon, nor does he miss the way Peter keeps hinting about some heroes he may or may not have encountered in the underbelly of New York on some of his vigilante webbing sprees.  

He just doesn’t expect anything to come of it.  Of much of anything he’s been putting effort into.  Refuses to.  He doesn’t need to get results to know that things are, surprisingly, working out well.

So when he’s working on Peter’s goggles late one night, the faint alert that pops up in front of his face is a minor shock, as is FRIDAY’s soft: “It appears you’ve an update on the SSIMS, boss.”

“Oh.”

The Soul Sounds Intergalactic Music System had started transmitting at multiple frequencies two months previous, piggybacking off of one of SI’s most powerful satellites with full approval for maintenance and upgrades– as needed– from NASA’s astronauts up at the space station.  Since then, it has not only been keeping the space stationed entertained, but it’s been shelling out music to the farthest reaches of the galaxy and beyond.  

Tony really hadn’t expected anything to come of it.  Like, really hadn’t.

“Pull it up, sweetheart.”

She does.

“Oh,” Tony blinks.  “Oh.”

“Yes, I believe you’ve said that twice already, sir.”

“We–” Tony frowns down at the sight of a soundwave that had not be transmitted by his own device, but something that had bounced back from somewhere out in the deep.  “We got a reply?”

“As it turns out, boss, music might just be a universal language.  Would you like me to play it?”

“Where’s it originate from?”

FRIDAY goes quiet for a moment, then returns with an estimate, and Tony nearly chokes on his own tongue.  

“That’s– FRI, that’s really not–”

“Would you like me to play it, sir?”

“Please.”

The first notes are garbled, static and messy, not even really sound at all.  Then, it pitches so high that Tony has to cover his ears for a moment.

It’s only when it settles, the first lyrics belt out of Tony’s speakers, and Tony falls out of his chair laughing as Hooked on a Feeling starts playing through his lab.

*

He’s down in Florida by the next day, a pair of purple sunglasses in place as he breezes through, heading straight for Carol’s office.  She greets him with a surprised blink and a smile, before demanding to know what he’s there.

“I’ve got a phone call to make,” he points upwards with a finger.

She escorts him all the way down to the servers they set aside for Tony’s pet project, watching as he messes around with the wires and hooks his phone into the main system while the engineers fret off to the side.  Arms crossed, she frowns down at him and arches a brow when he starts scrolling through a playlist.

“What are you gonna play?”

Tony grins, all teeth, and selects something in the middle.  The first riff of guitar starts up and Carol blinks at him again before her chin falls to her chest, her laugh lost to the steady thrum of Space Cowboy.

*

It takes an entire week and a half for any kind of response, but Tony knows that light travels faster than sound, even in space, so he’s not all that surprised.  When it does come, he’s wondrously delighted by the harmony of The Mamas & The Papas.

“FRIDAY?”

“Yes, boss?”

“How about we dust off the new place in Malibu?  I think I might have some visitors heading my way.”

*

Rhodey does not think it’s a smart idea, but he doesn’t insist on going with him the way that Bruce does.  They leave the team in Rhodey’s very capable hands, taking the private jet and knowing that their just a sling ring away from being where they’re needed; if they’re needed.  

The new house on the coast of Malibu is just as ostentatious as the old one, but bigger and a bit more sturdy.  Tony tells Bruce that he turned the property into a safehouse, of sorts, in case he ever needed it.  In case they ever needed it.  

There’s a landing pad on the roof, that Tony sent the coordinates of with his last song about California Stars by some band that died in the 90s.  

They’re there for two weeks when Tony is woken from a dead sleep by blaring alerts and FRIDAY telling him that there is a legitimate unidentified flying object landing on his roof.  He throws his sheets aside and rubs the sleep from his eyes on the way up to the helipad, only to be blinded the second he steps out the door, air whipping around and tugging at his already mussed hair and clothes.  

He holds up a hand to block the glare, squinting between his fingers as he catches the sleek lines of orange and blue, fear present somewhere at the back of his head but mouth stretching into a wide smile.  The hiss of the hydraulics has him practically bouncing onto his toes, something giddy unfurling in his chest as a ramp lowers.  For a moment, he thinks he should’ve brought a boom box and held it over his head like Cusac.  

Maybe next time.

He isn’t sure what, exactly, he’s expecting– though, dimly, he realizes he is expecting something, hopeful of something, and isn’t that a kick in the gut– but when a very tall, very strawberry blonde man comes bounding down the ramp, he’s more than a little dumbstruck.  Though, considering Thor is technically an alien, he knows he shouldn’t be.  

But the music that pours out after the man snaps him back into focus, and Tony chokes on a laugh as he recognizes Take On Me by a-ha.  When the guy falters at the end of the ramp, eyes a little wide and smile a little wider, Tony takes it upon himself to make first introductions.  

“Hey, there, space geek.” Tony greets with a smile, stepping forward and offering out a hand.  “I can definitely say this is the best close encounter of the first kind that I’ve ever heard of.”

Any wariness vanishes, and the man offers his hand in return.  “I’ll be honest, I wasn’t really sure what I was expecting from a musical penpal, but I figured you had good taste, so it would be worth the risk.”

“I assure you, the feeling is mutual.” Tony says.  

*

Peter Quill, or as he insists Star-Lord, is not alone upon arrival.  When he and Tony are done with their own introductions, a few quips passed between them, Peter insists that Tony meet the rest of his motley crew just as Tony insists they come inside and get themselves acquainted.  

It is refreshing to not be instantly recognized for who he is.  Instead, the crew of the blue and orange ship only know him as the guy that’s been broadcasting Terran jams all throughout the galaxy.  The rest of the crew is, naturally, a bit of a shock to Tony’s– and Bruce’s, when he joins them in the living room overlooking the Pacific– system.  It’s much more what he expected, though he’s still trying to wrap his brain around the talking tree.

And the talking raccoon.

And the very intimidating looking woman and man with skins the colors of jelly bellies.

When they all settle in, some of Quill’s group looking a little less wary by each passing second, Tony offers to order up some food for delivery and Peter jumps on the chance to have pizza.  It’s then that Tony realizes Peter isn’t necessarily an alien; just returning home after a very long trip.

They talk for a long time, the Guardians telling Bruce and Tony their story and how, exactly, they came to carry that name, as well as not-so-subtly letting them know that they have other crew members back up in the deep dark space above that would come looking if anything were to happen to them.  Tony just smiles and offers them their choice of the guest rooms.

*

He has Stephen bring Thor over the next day, to sit and talk with the Guardians about a few things that include the intergalactic immunity clauses of the Accords that he urges them to sign so that they might enjoy an extended stay on earth rather than a sadly brief one.  

When that’s said and done, it’s Peter that turns to Tony over a heaping pile of bacon, eyes bright.  “So, how long can we stay?”

“As long as you’d like,” Tony shrugs.  “This house is mostly empty most of the time, anyway.”

“What’s the catch?” Gamora asks shrewdly.

Tony grins.  “I’d like a chance to check out whatever tech you brought with you.”

Instantly, Rocket perks.  “I knew y’were a gear jockey the second Quill told us you’d sent a reply, didn’t I, Groot?”

“I am Groot.”

“Shuddap, I did.  After I said he was a loser.”

Tony laughs.

*

He isn’t exactly sure how he decides to stay with the Guardians at the mansion in Malibu when Bruce decides to return to the Compound, but he knows that he does.  Quill says he’s got some personal business somewhere in the mid-west, and Tony offers up his resources but figures Peter can figure his own way through his little coming-of-age adventure.  Figures he’d rather he and his friends would rather take it on their own.  

Rocket and Groot stay behind with Tony, tinkering around with him down in the basement until they return four days later.  Tony’s more than grateful that they’re back because trying to keep Rocket from taking apart everything that he owns has been bad on his already terrible heart.

“Did you find what you were looking for?” Tony asks Peter.

Peter gives an aborted bob of his head, mouth twisted in a way that makes Tony ache somewhere in his chest, and he watches as Peter tries to keep his hands busy with some of the tools laid out over the work table.  The others have already retreated into their respective rooms, but Peter is lingering.  Restless.  

Tony knows that feeling well.

“Didn’t find anything good, did you?” Tony offers up a small smile that Peter doesn’t quite return.

He clears his throat, shakes his head, and Tony watches as his jaw works.  “Just, uh… Dunno why, but I kinda thought nothing would change.”

“Thirty years in space is a long time.”

“Yeah,” Peter croaks.

For a long second, Tony is at a loss as to what to do.  He’s never been great with emotions, his own, or anyone else’s.  But he doesn’t like the distance that grows in Peter’s usually bright, expressive eyes.  

Pushing to his feet, Tony pads over and places a tentative hand on his shoulder, smile tight but earnest.  Peter tries again, and fails again, to return it.

“You know what helps?” Tony asks, catching Peter’s wrist and pulling him away from the table.  

“What?”

“Well, first answer is always drinking.” Tony winks.  “But considering I have to start taking better care of my liver, the second answer is music.  FRIDAY?”

The music floats in, the jazzy upbeat tune already bringing a small smile to Peter’s mouth.  It takes only a second longer before Peter is laughing and swaying with the beat, right next to Tony, and guffawing out a loud sound when Tony uses his loose grip to push Peter into a lazy spin.  

Tony’s already singing along.  He knows it’s ridiculous.  It’s mid-July.

“Do you remember,” he tosses his head back laughing when Peter retaliates, taking both Tony’s hands in his and spinning him around and around and around.  “Dancing in September?  Golden dreams and shiny days.”

*

“You should come with us,” Peter says as they’re loading up into the Milano.  

It’s been a month and Tony is sad to see them go.  It’s been a long time since he felt so content, so guiltless, in people’s company.  They’re just like him, a bunch of fuck-ups, but together they’re something more.  Something better.

He almost wishes he could take them up on the offer.

“Can’t,” Tony shrugs.  “Got a world to keep safe.  And you’ve got a galaxy to look after.”

Okay, he definitely wishes he could take them up on the offer.  

“Maybe next time?” he asks.

Peter beams.  “Definitely next time.”

As he’s walking up the ramp, music comes streaming out of the Milano.  Tony snorts, shaking his head and crossing his arms over his chest as Peter thrusts a fist into the air, Simple Minds’ Don’t You Forget About Me pouring around him.  

*

It’s two weeks later, back at the Compound, that Tony gets the alert.  

He pulls it up, smiling at the sight of sound waves, and has FRIDAY start the track.  He leans back in his seat, head tipped back and eyes closed, and lets the dream of stars steal the night away.
