information about the heroes he encounters. Even though he may be an aspiring
hero now, it’s a habit, born out of his natural curiosity and his life-long
longing to become like his heroes.
classmates notice how Izuku can often be seen bent over his notes, scribbling
away furiously while muttering to himself. But when they ask him what he’s
doing, Izuku just blushes, covers his notes with both hands or stuffs them into
his bag, mumbling a hasty excuse and changes the subject.

children are speechless about it. Normally, it would be strange or unsettling
when someone takes detailed notes about a person without that person knowing.
But this notebook… There is so much work and love put into it. The sketches
tell of love for the detail and great observation skills, while the notes next
to those sketches speak about the adoration and admiration Izuku holds for his

Darkness. A vast underground cavern. Prince Rin watches from the side as a
young man with dark hair and a serene face steps forward out of a small group
of people clad in white. The light of a few candles is illuminating his figure,
black bangs of hair falling over his face, a huge scarf wrapped around his neck
and shoulders covering his nose and mouth. His slight frame moves gracefully towards
the center of the cavern, looking young and delicate but at the same time there
is a strange air of power about him. Kneeling at the sandy ground he puts his
hands down, closes his eyes and time seems to stand still.
take his eyes away. He’s never seen anything like that before, so this is what
a water ritual looks like. Energy seems to flow through the lithe body of the
dark haired foreigner, through his fingers and out into the sand. His eyes are
still closed and his brows narrow in concentration. Rin watches in complete and
utter awe as the sound of water rising from the ground breaks the silence. The
sound is distant but grows louder every moment until droplets of clear water
begin to form on the ground. Water is being brought forth from the depths of
the earth by the astonishing power of the young mage. A few more seconds and
the water is already shooting from the ground full force forming a fountain. The
dark-haired boy finally opens his eyes and their gazes meet for a few moments.
Rin feels as though an electric current runs though his body as he finds
himself staring into clear blue eyes. He’s not sure anymore about the reality
of what’s happening, it might be just a beautiful illusion, it might as well be
mage stands up slightly staggering. The ritual must have been extremely
exhausting, he looks very tired. The water is now completely drenching his clothes.
The prince sees a look of pure bliss pass the other’s features as he watches the
water droplets run down his face. Ethereal. That’s the only word that Rin can
think of to define the boy in front of him who now seems to be in a world of
his own, completely ignoring his surroundings. Rin breathes out, he realizes
only now that he’s been holding his breath. The sight is sending shivers down
his spine. And for the first time in his life he finds himself completely captivated.
Nothing else matters, only the marvelous being in front of him. Thoughts are
racing through his head, ‘Want him. I want him. I want. Him.’ Like rain on thirsty
land. Dive into him like the sea. Drink him like water.
I know you think that this is what’s best for me. That I’m better off without you when you’re like this, but you’re wrong. You’re wrong. I need you here with me, Quinn.
I can’t. It’s not fair to either of us if I stay here like this.
We didn’t get enough time together, that’s what’s not fair!
↳ When Quinn dies her spirt still lingers in the places where her and Rachel fell in love. Someone from the other side tells Quinn she has one week to go to Heaven or she’ll stay like this forever. She is forced to choose between staying with the girl who made her life worth living, or letting her go so they both can move on.
“Stand down, Agent Ward. I’m not here to kill you.” God, she’s going to be in so much trouble for this. “I just want to talk.”
She’s not surprised when he doesn’t lower his gun. But he doesn’t shoot her yet, either.
“I don’t even know who you are,” he scowls. “Why should I listen to you?”
“Because you’re a better person than this, and I can help,” she continues, her tone becoming more steady as they lock eyes. “I’ve read your file and I’ve gone over every bit of intel we have on you. This is not the person you want to be, Ward. I know you better than you even know yourself.”
He takes a step closer to her, but she doesn’t back down. “Then you should also know that it’s too late for me to change,” he says harshly, his fingers tightening on the trigger.
She stares down the barrel of the gun, alone and defenseless and also unafraid. Is this who she would gamble for? Is this the man she would put her life on the line for, just to show him the light?
The answer, she thinks, was most definitely ‘yes’.
“Grant,” she tries again, and an unrecognizable expression flashes in his eyes. “Give me a chance. I can bring you to my agency, and you can start over. Become someone new.”
“Your agency. Which one is that?”
“I’m a part of SHIELD. And we protect people, save them–from the unknown, the extra-terrestrial, and even themselves. They sent me here today to cross you off.
But I’m going to make a difference choice. I’m going to try to save you, too.”
“Save me?” he whispers. If Skye hadn’t known better, she would have mistaken his grimace for a smile. But then his expression falters, just for a second, and she can see the lost and broken boy hiding behind the mask of a man. “Now, why would anyone want to do that?”
“Love is for children. I owe her a debt.”
Agent Skye is the highest ranked specialist at SHIELD ever since Romanoff. Never having failed a mission, she is the pride and joy of her father, legendary Phil Coulson, from whom she has also inherited flawless people skills and a high degree of compassion. So when the agency sends her to eliminate a major threat–rogue assassin Grant Ward–Skye sees the good in him and makes a different call.
She gives him a chance at redemption.
Over time, the two grow closer and become an inseparable pair, despite a rough start. They slowly gain each other’s trust, and soon there is no one else that Skye would prefer watching her six on an op than Grant Ward. And the man himself starts to see the light, something that she is overjoyed about.
She had always found Ward attractive, and she almost fell for him once. But now–
They are partners, Skye has to remind herself. Professionals. There is no need for a romantic relationship between them.
But she doesn’t really believe it. And neither does Grant.
~ The quiet noises you make as you lift are very distracting.
~ I have a favorite bike/elliptical/treadmill, and every time I come to the gym, YOU’RE ON IT, no matter what time of day or night it is.
~ My spotter/workout buddy is too busy ogling someone across the gym and you notice that I’m kind of in distress here.
~ Your workout shirts are always bands/tv shows/movies/comic books I like, and would it be weird if I just came over and told you that?
~ You and your idiot friends are always goofing around on the racquetball court, and I have a serious league tournament to practice for, can you all please GTFO?
~ I was so busy watching you do yoga that I fell off the treadmill and I think I might have seriously injured myself, ow.
~ I don’t care what your personal trainer says, if you keep doing it like that, you’re going to fuck yourself up, here let me show you how it’s done.
~ I know it’s rude to stare in the locker room, but you walk around totally naked far more than necessary, and godDAMN.
~ We’re the only two people in the sauna and it’s a little awkward and you keep rolling your shoulder and grimacing, and I’m a certified massage therapist and would it be weird if I offered to help you with that?
This is all @robespierrre‘s fault. I am now officially Kylo Amidala trash. (God, I’m a trekkie what am I thinking. *cries*)
General Brendol Hux III had been debriefed extensively on Senator Amidala, the Resistance’s most powerful ally in the senate and son to General Organa. Supreme Leader Snoke seemed to think he was the missing piece to finally get the Republic to fall under their power and ensure the First Order’s rule over the galaxy.
The reports talked about a powerful personality and cunning intellect hidden under layers of silk, gold and deceit. Much like the late Senator Amidala, his grandmother, he wielded his appearance like a sharp sword, always ten steps ahead and never willing to back down. What the reports didn’t mention, and Supreme Leader Snoke was quick to warn him against, was that Kylo Amidala was a powerful force user and the only one allied to the Resistance who knew how to use the dark side. With the strenght of both light and dark, he could be the key to change the galaxy’s future.
/Nobody told me he was beautiful./
From behind a pillar of stone in the first level of the Senate, he observed Senator Amidala, his pale skin almost glowing in dim light, dressed in a blood red robe that matched the colour of his lipstick. No wonder other politicians seemed to stop at the physical part of him, he was truly stunning and Hux was sure, if he were to smile, he could probably obtain anything he asked for.
Then the man stopped in his tracks and raised his head, his brow furrowed, as if listening to something. And then he moved his gaze and pinned the red haired man with a cold stare.
“You seem to know a lot about me, I do believe it’s time you returned the favour, General.”
But then what about in ain’t no grave when the instant Bucky meets Sam he starts hitting on him and Steve’s like omg! And Bucky’s like chill bro I can look and Steve’s like I LOOK TOO BUT-OH WAIT. And then later on Bucky’s like FINE I’ll take care of myself but you gotta make out with me Sam

Office of Strategic Services Letter Removal Device
During World War II, one used this special pincer device to take letters from their envelopes without opening their seals. By inserting it into the unsealed gap at the top of an envelope flap, one could then wind the letter around the pincers and extract the letter from within.
