still pretending that this is

Dad Advice
  • Craig: keep your eye on the ball but for God's sake, if you see the ball coming toward you don't catch it with your eye.
  • Brian: Don't force your love on a dog. Love can't be forced. A dog will love you anyway, but still.
  • Robert: It's only illegal if you get caught. Just pretend that the guy ran into your knife sixteen times.
  • Joseph: Label your jars and shakers. No one wants salty cookies. *flashbacks*
  • Mat: You're not a real man if you drink decaf! But I'm not going to demean women by saying you're not a man..women aren't weak if they happen to prefer decaf...and I'm not gonna let the type of coffee you drink determine your manhood and masculinity. Down with sexism. I'm sorry, what was I saying?
  • Hugo: All your teachers lie to you about what the next grade will be like.
  • Damien: If you want to wear a dress, then wear a dress. If you want to wear that dress with crocs then by all means. I can't tell you how to dress, but you should know that you will have lost all my respect.

“I heard about you… topping that bloke.” He didn’t know where the words came from or what would fall from his mouth next. All he knew was that he hurt. “…How do you live with it?”

“You don’t.” Ross watched the tear roll down Aaron’s face with the focus of fighting his own. “You just have to get on with your life.” It was then Ross realized Aaron hadn’t been denying the blame for Donna’s death just to shift it from himself, but because he understood something that it didn’t seem anyone else did.

You were sat listening to Steve on the phone with Natasha.

“I don’t need a date, Nat.”

“Because you’ve already got one.” you said through gritted teeth. You and Steve had been dating for almost a year now yet he had kept your relationship a secret from his friends. At first you had been able to understand but you had to listen countless times to them trying (unknowingly) to set him up with women or seem him go to the Avenger’s tower alone.

“Okay, yep. I’ll see you later. Bye.”

Hearing him put down the phone you quickly picked up your book again and tried to appear interested in it. Steve came in and sat down next to you.

“There’s a thing at the Tower tonight.”

“Ok.” you said, bluntly, still pretending to read.

“I just wondered if it was ok to go?”

“You always do go why should today be different.”

“Are you ok?” Steve asked his hand falling onto your thigh.

“Am I ok? Steve you haven’t told anyone abut us. You haven’t let anyone come round in case they see me. Why am I such a big secret?”

Steve sighed, “You know I just want to keep you safe I-”

“I understood that for the first few months but now I don’t feel safe. I feel like I’m constantly hiding whilst you go out and live your normal life. You don’t need to keep me protected 24/7 and actually wouldn’t I be safer being friends with a group of Avengers instead of one?” You picked up your book and held it over your face so Steve didn’t see your lip trembling holding back frustrated tears.

There was a moment of silence before Steve spoke.

“I’m sorry. You know I wanted to protect you and like I always do I take control and decided what is best even if it’s not. I never meant to keep you a secret…not this long anyway. I admit I was probably too scared but now I know it has to happen. So…will you come with me tonight?”

You peered over your book at him, and he looked apprehensive.

“Only if you want me to.” you said.

He took the book out of your hands and pulled you closer. Of course I want you to. I love you and I’d love everyone to meet you. I’ve just been stupid not to take you sooner.”


You were both stood outside the tower just about to go in.

“Ready?” Steve said his voice laced with nerves.

“No, but I think we’ve waited long enough.” you replied.

So you went in.

As you walked through the door, Steve’s hand gripped firmly in yours, there were various shouts of “Hey!”.

“Who’s this?” Natasha said, smiling as she hugged Steve with one arm. You noticed the background talking had quietened down as though to listen in. Steve brought you next to him slipping his arm round your shoulder and said;

“This is [Y/N]…my girlfriend.”

Then the noises stopped altogether.

“Your girlfriend? What did you pick her up this morning?” Tony joked.

“No…erm…we’ve been together almost a year now.”

A pin could drop in the room in that second. Natasha stepped forward brows furrowed. “You’ve never mentioned [Y/N] before” she said although in her annoyance it came out almost as a hiss. You felt the need to stand up for Steve.

“I was annoyed as you are…well probably a little more. He wanted to keep me safe so-”

“So you kept her a secret? You let me try and set you up with people and-”

“Hey, I said I didn’t need dates.”

“WELL CLEARLY NOT.” Nat shouted in Steve’s face and although you somewhat understood why Steve did it you couldn’t help being on her side a little. You attempted to intervene again.

“Natasha trust me, he’s heard enough shouting from me. I’m just happy he’s finally let me meet you all, I’ve heard so much about you.” you smiled, lightly touching her arm. Natasha breathed out as though releasing her anger.

“I’m sorry I don’t know much about you, at least it will give us a lot to talk about.” she smiled taking your arm and leading you further into the room but not before sneaking a glare at Steve.


It was getting later and you had now been introduced individually to each person in the room and were now sitting between Sam and Wanda, engulfed in laughter at the jokes Sam was making, Steve came over and sat on the arm of your chair.

“Are you ready to go?” he smiled.

“Yeah I guess so.” you felt slightly saddened than you had to leave your new friends so son.

“Don’t worry [Y/N].” Sam said, “We superheroes all need our beauty sleep to look this good [he pointed at his face and you giggled] so you wont be missing out on much after you go.” You smiled and waved forward to hug him and Wanda then made your way round the room saying goodbyes.

Tony pulled into a hug and said; “Despite what Cap thinks, you are always welcome here.”

“Thank you.” you said, really meaning it and then you laughed as you both glared at Steve approaching who tried to look innocent as possible.

“I hope you’re not trying to start another war Stark.” Steve winked leading you away.

The last person you said goodbye to was the first face you met when you entered.

“I can’t believe all the time we’ve missed out on knowing each other but we will all have to make up for it [another glare at Steve although this time it was light hearted]. We should go for coffee sometime soon okay?” She pulled you in for a hug as you replied;

“I would love that.”


As you and Steve got into the taxi, he breathed out deeply as though he had been holding his breath the whole night.

“I had Nat in my ear for hours about not bringing you sooner.” He moaned, running his hands through his hair.

You leaned into his shoulder, smiling. “Well she had good reason to. Maybe you’ve learnt your lesson.” Steve chuckled and put his arm round you as the taxi pulled off towards home.

hi! i was thinking about jon leaving winterfell for sansa on the show and how petyr was visibly happy about it. what do you thing it's going to happen? (idk if there any leaks about this or if you read them, i'm just wondering what your personal opinion is) i'm not sure what i think tbh. petyr obviously has plans but idk if sansa is leaning towards him that much anymore. plus arya is on the way (and bran too) and i'm curious whether that means they'll all disagree or stand together.

Hey! So….there have been a fair number of leaks about Winterfell and Petyr this season, so my opinion on what should happen counts a lot less now that I know what does. I definitely think Baelish would try to turn any perceived power vacuum to his advantage, particularly if it has the additional benefit of further ingratiating himself with Sansa. I don’t want to say much more than that because the leaker who posted about the Northern storyline has had other leaks proven true by the first two eps and I don’t want to unintentionally spoil!

who hurt you? *rolls up sleeves*

It was just one of those “white kpop stans are so annoying and don’t belong here because bla bla bla” …
It makes me so furious! I don’t care about the color of people’s skin. Seriously … it’s just so wrong. People are so much more than the color of their skin. It horrifies me that someone can think elsewise ☹️

People listen to me Theon Greyjoy didn’t jump because he was tortured and shit he jumped because he has been a bitch for 7 seasons and he has been running away for 7 seasons.It’s the reason he’s still alive.STOP PRETENDING HE’S JUST SCARED OF THE BLOOD AND BULLSHIT LIKE THAT THIS IS GAME OF THRONES NOT DISNEY.

I hate the whole 'but BDSM is consensual' argument. Like pal,,buddy,,friend you're still getting off on beating someone, pretend raping someone, having your partner be a child. It also normalizes abuse. My brother's ex-wife was a "domme" and it wasn't long before she was hitting him even out of scenes. I don't mean to generalize, but it does seem to become a natural reaction for Dom(mes). And sadly, for a while, my brother thought it was okay, cause you know, she was his Domme.


anonymous asked:

Do you know any fics where Merlin's and Arthur used to date or whatever and meet again after years suddenly? Thanks!

I actually really love this trope! Because 1. There’s angst of a break up. 2. Usually they see each other after years and there’s more angst followed by “Holy shit, he got hot (or hotter). and 3. Get together fic even though it’s established relationship (know each other at least) and there’s break up angst. Perfection!

Summary: When Arthur agrees to meet Gwen’s new boyfriend Lance and his group of friends he never expected it to include Merlin. It’s been nine years since they broke up, but the memories are still raw. Pretending that they don’t know each other seems like the best idea, until it’s not.

Your fight is over.


Thank you Troian and Keegan for seven amazing years of Spoby. All the smiles, tears, angst, sexiness, happiness and heartbreak. We couldn’t ask for anyone better to portray these characters. You both are so incredibly talented and your connection on and off screen is what makes Spoby so enjoyable. Spoby will be missed and they will always be each other’s safe place to land. Thank you.
