@firebyfire here you go, sweetheart. It’s a slight bit different, but you will get clumsy Newt swooning over hot Graves. I promise that.
I thought it will be a short one. It’s not. lol
I’ve seen you several times around uni and every time you’ve seen me
tripping over something I swear it’s not because I’m swooning at how hot
Newt heard a lot of things about the new assistant of Anatomy professor. He usually didn’t really care about people, about how they look or what they wear. He was listening to what they talk about. And well, that narrowed his attention to the grumpy old professors and their lessons.
He was perfectly fine with that kind of student’s life and often was simply ignored by his fellow group mates. Oh, they tried to socialize with him, inviting him along when they went somewhere to have fun, but Newt wasn’t good at socializing. He always tended to annoy people, so he stopped trying a long time ago.
The first time he saw Mr. Graves was like watching some sloppily made introduction to a porn film. He watched few, alright? Just to experiment stuff, don’t judge him. So, Mr. Graves entered the classroom, pacing like a fucking model in front of them and stopped by the professor’s desk to tell the old man something.
Newt’s eyes didn’t know where to look seriously. He didn’t see anyone ever before who will think of as an attractive person. There was a lot of whispering between his mates but he paid them no attention, because Graves was going back and their eyes just met? And Newt’s hand jerked dropping the pencil he held. So, he naturally went down, under the desk to search for it, only to unceremoniously bang his head when he wanted to stand up. He got out eventually, not without a dull pain in his skull, but Graves was already gone and he dreamily sighed for the rest of the lesson, which he didn’t find as interesting as five minutes ago.
The second time he saw Mr. Graves was when he had his lunch at the cafeteria, the next Wednesday. Newt sat silently at his usual spot, near the window, munching on his favorite sandwich and reading through his report. Whenever he had something to work on, he would do that, but when he didn’t, he would just look out of the window and admire the nature. The spot had such a beautiful view and he was shocked that no one took it. Maybe other students were too busy gossiping and chatting with their friends.
A low hum made Newt raise his eyes from the paper he was reading. Mr. Graves sat at a table in front of him, and thank God, he was with his back at Newt, because Newt couldn’t trust his face at the moment. Mr. Graves was probably eating something really delicious, judging by the appreciative sounds he made.Newt’s face turned red and he couldn’t really breathe… because he was literally choking on his sandwich. He tried to swallow, tears forming in his eyes. After seconds of struggling, and he genuinely thought he will die, the bite of food went down his throat and he started coughing violently. Several persons watched him with worry, including Mr. Graves. Why no one gave him the attention when he almost died moments ago?
Mr. Graves was faster than his thought process, and no, he’s not stupid, he’s the smartest on his course, his mind was clouded by this man- and gave him a glass of water - his glass, as Newt noted - encouraging him to drink it up while soothingly rubbing his back. Those big hands felt so warm, even through the fabric of his sweater and Newt wanted to feel them on other parts of his body, everywhere to be precise, but Mr. Graves withdrew his hand much sooner than Newt would prefer to. When he tried to thank him, Newt stuttered and blushed such a deep shade of red, he didn’t need to see himself in a mirror to feel how hot his cheeks grew. Graves smiled at him, and God, the man was clearly trying to kill Newt, because what he was doing to redhead’s heart?
With a short nod, the man sat back at his table and resumed eating his lunch. Newt buried his face into his papers, trying to focus on them and not on the muscles flexing on Graves’ hands as that brought the spoon to his mouth.
When the Wednesday came around again, Newt sat restless through all of his lessons in hope to catch a glimpse of his crush- oh. He was crushing on Mr. Graves. This… wasn’t so bad, if he thought about it. Half of the university was crushing on him. It felt like crushing on a celebrity or something along those lines, because if he was being serious, he had no chances. Where was Mr. Graves and where was he?
Thinking about how his love life will never actually exist, he walked through the almost empty corridors, leading to the library. He loved to spend his free time in there. The dorms weren’t exactly a place where you can relax, study or read something. At least his roommate was just the silent type as he was, something he could not quite
attribute to their neighbors on both sides.
The smell of books, paper, ink and dust drew a fond smile out of him and Newt walked through the endless aisles in search of that book he wanted to check out some time ago. Spotting the needed row, he went directly for the place he saw the book the last time at. Just, it wasn’t here. His smile turned into a pout as his eyes searched for something else to occupy his mind with.
A small chuckle caught his attention and he turned his head in that direction, only to come face to face with the book he looked for. The book moved out of his vision and its place took a familiar handsome face of assistant Graves.
“You wanted to read this one?“ the man asked, his lips quirking up at Newt’s stuttered greeting. Newt nodded frantically, not trusting his mouth anymore and desperately trying to avoid eye-contact.
“You can take it then.“ Graves said, shoving gently the book into Newt’s trembling hands. Newt’s eyes widened and he actually looked up.
“Why?“ was his simple question and it made Graves smile
“Well, it would be rude to not give the student the opportunity to learn, even if it’s…“ his eyes were focused on Newt’s as he murmured, his voice becoming deeper “Captive Prince.“
Newt wanted the floor to crack and swallow him completely. He did want to read it, because he was a bit curious. Especially after seeing how the girls won’t shut up about how hot it is.
He didn’t observe when Graves invaded his personal space and practically shoved his body into the books behind, his hands blocking any ways to escape and his body dangerously pressing onto Newt’s as he whispered
“Newton Scamander, I would like to ask you to stop blushing so cutely whenever you see me, because I swear to God, I’ll do…“ Graves leaned and kissed him hard, and fiercely, passionately even. “this.“ He finished, his eyes devouring Newt’s swollen, wet lips.
Newt watched him through his lashes, his brain empty all of a sudden and lips burning. Maybe his mind was clouded again, but there was one thing he was sure of. He didn’t mind Graves doing that again. And even more. So, Newt just silently claimed Graves’ lips in a sloppy kiss. He was clumsy here as well, but he hoped that Graves will teach him how to do things properly from now on.
“Keith, my dear old boring friend,” Lance begins one day, intruding Keith’s personal space and flinging himself down on Keith’s bed like he owns the place. “You know what’s been bothering me? There is absolutely no one in this solar system to kiss. How sad is that?”
Keith glances up from his book, frowning. “Leave.”
“Oh, dear. Is someone upset today? Shocker.” Lance stretches his arms up above his head, yawning. “You probably haven’t even kissed someone. How sad.”
It’s obvious bait, but Keith falls for it anyways. “Of course I’ve kissed someone,” he protests automatically.
Lance snorts, rolling over on the bed. He rests his chin on his palm, a perfect picture of laziness, and raises an eyebrow at Keith. “Sure you have.”
Keith rolls his eyes. “As if you have?”
Lance shrugs. “I’ll have you know that at the garrison, I had my fair share of lady friends.”
“Maybe, but that’s their choice.” He angles one finger over at Keith. “You, sir, are missing out.”
me: Man-Ew is abusive because he fits more than half of this university’s women’s center’s signs of abuse. He gets possessively jealous, his behavior is unpredictable, he belittles and humiliates the woman he claims to love in public where her co-workers can both see and hear, he refuses to respect Kara’s decisions in a situation where she has more experience making decisions than he does, he refuses to listen to Kara and actively chooses to break promises he makes to her, then when things go wrong because he does what he wants anyway and Kara has to get very firm and harsh with him to get him to hear her she ends up being the one portrayed as the bad guy and has to apologize to him instead. Also he calls her his “kryptonite” and pushed her to make a decision about her job that could get her fired when he had no right to make that decision for her and proceeds to not look or sound sorry at all when she does inevitably lose her job. No little girl watching this, or older girls and women for that matter, should have to watch this and be told through the narrative that it’s what romance looks like.
karahell shippers: WHAT A CRAZY DRAMA QUEEN YOU JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND HIM IT’S HOW HE WAS RAISED YOU’RE SUCH A PROFESSIONAL HATER!!
me: Replacing James Olsen, a Black love interest, with Man-Ew, a white male slave-owning love interest, is racist. It’s part of a larger pattern of interracial couples in film and television getting sidelined because fans and creators didn’t “see chemistry” between the characters. Usually it’s the Black character who gets written/killed off and the white character gets paired off with another white character of the opposite gender. And if the writers did just genuinely feel that James and Kara had no chemistry and wanted to introduce a new love interest, they could have made that character also a character of color so as to avoid the critique that the decision was actually based on race. At the very least, they could have let Kara have a female love interest, even if she was white, so that the relationship was still breaking boundaries and not just replacing an interracial relationship with your standard, generic, white hetero relationship that is actually abusive.
manolo stans: WHAT DOES SKIN COLOR HAVE TO DO WITH IT?! YOU’RE THE ONLY ONE BRINGING UP RACE HERE SO YOU’RE THE RACIST! AND HOW DARE THEY “BLACKWASH” JIMMY OLSEN, I DON’T SEE YOU CALLING THAT RACIST, YOU’RE JUST A CRAZY FEMINAZI WITH A LIBERAL AGENDA, YOU DON’T EVEN READ THE COMICS!!
me: nvm, y’all voted for Lord Dampnut anyway, so there’s no point to this
A/N- Once again I wrote this on my phone at 1am so I’m sorry for any issues there inevitably are.
Dan Shrugged his backpack off his shoulders and placed it on the hook in his locker switching the books he would no longer need with the ones he would be using for the remainder of his own personal day in hell, or how others referred to it ‘School’, the very word sends shivers down Dan’s spine. Dan’s head hung low, his eyes focusing in on each speck of the hideous pattered floor, praying to every God and Super Hero alike that he could just blend in to his surroundings, doing everything in his power to draw no attention to himself. But it just so happens that being an openly gay, sixteen year old boy that wears pastel pink sweaters, white jeans, pastel purple high top converse and colour co-ordinated flower crowns in a homophobic, narrow minded school with a bunch of dickhead teenagers you tend to be the target for a lot of bullying; In other words, the ‘Ideal Victim’.
She let him stew until finally a sly grin curved her lips. “So … I’m an advantage, huh?”
Gods. Dismay nearly choked him. “You heard us?”
“You mean you didn’t notice me?”
He had somehow noticed everything in the room but Jyn. Awe mingled with irritation; he was supposed to be better at this – a professional, each experience hard-won - but he couldn’t deny that she impressed him. If she could evade his active observation, she’d be more than an asset on the field. The thought was dangerous, and intoxicating … “I was preoccupied.”
“Mhm. Of course. If you’d rather I leave you to your preoccupation –”
“I’d rather be distracted from it, honestly.”
“I’m game.” Her grin lost its cunning edge, left an expression sweet as summer. “So, you do that with everyone. Even your boss! I’m impressed.”
“Your leading questions thing.”
It was his turn to smile. “Who do you think I learned it from?”
“Oh, I don’t know. I thought it might be a character defect.”
so… dean and cas worked together with mary and… mary and cas bonded so quickly… they felt so much like a family.. ‘cause they are a family… all of them working to save sam and… CAS WAS RIDING SHOTGUN AND… WHAT’S IT LIKE SETTLING DOWN WITH ANOTHER HUNTER AND I’M DYING!!!
I need… Manipulative Lotor for season 3. Especially with lance considering that he finally stated his insecurities about himself I’d like to see someone use that to their advantage to weaken the poor boy (I am sorry my son but it’s quite inevitable….)
From previously I’d like to also believe the person Keith and Hunk meet in the Weblum is Lotor himself.
1. Lotor had never even been mentioned before Keith helped him out of his vessel inside the Weblum and after he got away.
(I gush towards the end of this theory and it loses all structure I’m just reaching for this hehrehehe)
