...And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while.

Distance is a fucking bitch, but well worth it with the right person. If you get the opportunity to see your girl everyday, every week, or hell even every month, cherish it. Look her in the eyes and tell her that you love her over and over again. Don’t pick pointless fights & don’t ever regret the time you spend with her. If I got the chance to see my girl everyday, every week or every month I would make her feel like the most loved girl in this world. I would kiss her until her mouth no longer knows how to ask for more. I would look deep into her eyes and tell her every reason why I love her. I wouldn’t let her go, even for a minute. I would fall in love with her over and over again without hesitation. Don’t ever take the time you have with someone for granted because you never know how long you may have to go without them.

I’m rewatching Riverdale S1 and it’s genuinely painful to see what Betty goes through re: Archie and infuriating to see how he responds to her getting over him. 

This is a girl who has pined for the boy next door since she was a child. She tells him something deeply sweet, and intimate, that she has this fantasy of them as a couple. It’s not something that’s easy to say – especially for a girl like Betty who is consistently drowning in good girl expectations. 

She doubts that he feels the same for her, she clearly struggles with self-esteem, but she goes for it. She tells him. And the night she takes the plunge, just in that one night alone, he’s too busy trying to get his hands on two other women to even see it coming.

Betty doesn’t even register to Archie when she’s telling him he can have her, she wants him to have her, she wants to have him. Then, he just takes her claim that she’s fine, already over his rebuff of her romantic feelings, which, dude, Archie, how stupid can you be? He dismisses her concerns and ignores her advice and instinct re: Grundy even though she’s known him basically his whole life. He’s so involved in his own stuff that he has no idea what she’s going through with Polly, and her parents, and her crumbling mental health.

He takes her for granted, in every single way a person can take someone for granted, throughout the entire season. It’s not until he can’t have her, until he sees how head over heels she is for Jughead, that he sees her. 

I know some people love the “don’t know what you got ‘til it’s gone” trope but I hate it, I always have and I especially hate this potential incarnation of it. 

Because on top of Archie being an idiot, there’s Jughead. Who knows Betty well enough even before we’ve seen them interact to tell Archie to get his head out of his ass and go talk to her if he wants to fix things. Who values her opinion so much that he goes with her pick for the drive-in’s last screening. Who trusts her enough to join the school paper at her request even though he’s obviously reluctant to get involved in, well, anything. Who senses that she needs support on multiple occasions and seeks her out to provide it - when he is going through some seriously dysfunctional shit of his own, mind you - not like “Oh I love girls and football and music all at the same time this is hard” dysfunction but “My home life is a nightmare and I live in the janitor’s closet” dysfunction. Who opens up to her, who gives her a safe place to open up, too. Who is passionate about her – wants to kiss her, to touch her, to tell her how good and smart and strong she is. Who sees her every time. 

Like there’s just no competition, even. It’s not a love triangle. It’s two people in a wonderfully healthy relationship and there’s Archie who derps on in at the 11th hour because he realized he missed out on something great. And I’ll be really, really frustrated if they actively pursue something that even resembles a triangle in S2 because there is nothing valuable in that story to tell, they’ll wind up sacrificing a really fantastic piece of character development for both Betty and Jughead for some ginger manpain and I’m not here for that. 

just another coffee shop AU

So this was part of a not!fic challenge but it ended up as more of a fic than a not!fic, so I’m posting it here. The challenge was to put a trope in my inbox and I’d tell you about the story I’d write. (Honestly, I’m tempted to adapt this and try to do it as orig fic, haha) So enjoy.

It’s harder than you think to get a job in a little podunk town that’s mostly home to fishermen. Dex takes what he can get, and what he can get is a job dishing out lattes and scones at the little pretentious coffee house that vacationing yuppies love to frequent on their way to Maine’s outlet malls. It’s barely a living, but Dex doesn’t need much.

He serves coffee one day to the preppiest of the prep – a luxuriously coiffed writer who tells him that the coffee shop has the perfect atmosphere for inspiration. Dex snorts. This is a guy who wears his stubble purposely rough, to achieve some kind of effect. He probably wears “pre-distressed” clothing (although right now his outfit’s actually really sharp, with this vest over a fuzzy, tight-fitting sweater.)

The writer challenges him. “Come on, you have to have a little poetry in your soul?”

“I sold my soul for a three-dollar latte,” Dex replies.

The man laughs, and goddamn, even his teeth are perfect.

I hope you fall in love
With someone who always texts back and never lets
You fall asleep thinking you’re
I hope you fall in love with someone
Who holds your hand during the scary parts of
Horror movies and burns
Cookies with you when you’re
Too busy dancing around the
I hope you fall in love with
Someone who sees galaxies in your eyes
And hears music in your
I hope you fall in love with someone who
Tickles you and makes you smile
On hard days and on easy
But beyond all that I hope
You fall in love with someone
Who will never leave you behind
And who will never take you
For granted, someone who
Will stand by you when you’re
Right and stand by you
When you’re wrong,
Someone who has seen you at your worst
And has loved you
I hope you fall in love
With someone who
Kisses you in the rain
And hugs you in the cold and
Wouldn’t have you any other

Wouldn’t It Be Wonderful, l.h.k.

I hate when people,
Take love for granted.

I would die,
for someone to hold,
and feel safe with,
for someone attentive,
and doesn’t mind that I’m graceless.

Yet these people,
throw hearts out of windows,
and shatter them against pavement,
when I only want,
to cherish it.

Word count: 1878 

Warnings: Cursing, low-self esteem, chubby!reader x bucky, idk….

A/N:  Sorry for the long wait.  I needed some time.  I’ve got the next few chapters just about ready to go…and I’m gonna try and make them hurt ;) yay angst!

After Natasha successfully slammed you to the mat for the sixteenth time in a row you finally cried ‘uncle’ and ended the hour long workout/torture session.  You’d come here to kickbox and beat the holy hell out of a bag but a certain spider had other ideas.

“I deserve this,” you groaned.  Your chest heaved as your lungs strained for breath. The amorphous blob of a sweatshirt you insisted on wearing while exercising was soaked with sweat and made you feel as if you were slowly cooking in one of Hell’s saunas.  “This is why I hate exercising.”  Nat extended a hand to pull you to your feet but you shook your head dramatically on the mat.  “No, just leave me here to die.  I quit.  You go out and fight the good fight.  I’ll save my skills and start a nice, quiet dart league or somethin’.”  Natasha rolled her eyes and kicked your leg. “No, seriously.  I retire my knives to you.  My guns, throwing stars, all of it.  Take care of Ferd for me.  Tell him his mummy loved him,” you wailed with a huge fake sob.

I hope you fall in love with someone who always texts back and never lets you fall asleep thinking you’re unwanted
I hope you fall in love with someone who holds your hand during the scary parts of a horror movie or burns cookies with you at 2am cause you’re to busy dancing in the kitchen
I hope you fall in love with someone who sees galaxies in your eyes and hears music in your heartbeats
I hope you fall in love with someone who makes you smile even on the hardest of days
I hope you fall in love with someone who never leaves you behind and who will never take you for granted someone who will always stand by you someone who has seen you at your worse and still loves you
I hope you fall in love with someone who kisses you in the rain and hugs you in the cold
And most importantly fall in love with someone who wouldn’t have you any other way

I saw an interesting suggestion… “Take time today to appreciate someone who does something you take for granted.”…

Hmmm…..that could be everything. I try to remember to say “Thank you” to the people in my path.

Good advice… How to improve? Perhaps by being observant as ‘taking for granted’ means we just don’t notice. So notice maybe. 🤗😘

Summary: So what if you have a crush on the vigilante Daredevil? It’s not like he knows you personally.

Request: Can I please request a Matt/reader where they are friends but she doesn’t know yet that Matt is Daredevil, and one day they start talking about DD and Foggy starts bugging her about “having a crush on the Devil”(and she doesn’t deny it). And later on, Matt makes a move as Daredevil and drops a hint or two of who he really is?? Thankyou :)

Tagging: @kwaiky

Requested by: @iamthemaskhewears

Author’s note: im glad to see that daredevil fans aint dead. did a slight twist to the prompt

You take a long hard look at the photo plastered on the front page of the newspaper- a reported photo of the vigilante Daredevil elaborately leaping to a nearby building. The identity of his true self is unknown and the mystery surrounding him makes you want to know more about this infamous vigilante.

“Really, Y/N? Again with the newspaper?” Foggy’s voice comes from behind, making you grin at what he might say next.

“Next thing I know, you have a shrine of Daredevil in your closet.” He places a mug of hot coffee on the coaster next to you.

Imagine Woozi making sure to take some time out of his busy schedule to have video calls with you whenever he’s away for work.

I wanted to ask, wanted to clear things. I wanted to remove all these thoughts inside my head. I wanted to know what’s the truth. Because I have this feeling that something isn’t right, things aren’t adding up. And I don’t know if you’ll tell the truth or if you’re just going to shush me off, like my thoughts are just out of paranoia. I wanted to ask but what good would it do anyway? Will I be able to accept the truth? Will I get hurt, again? I’m tired of getting hurt, of picking up my heart everytime someone else picks and drops it, of rebuilding myself, of telling myself I deserve better but only settling for what people give to me. I’m tired of listening to people when they say how much they love me but some of their actions prove less. I’m tired of always putting my heart out in hopes that maybe, this time I won’t get left behind, that maybe this time, I will be enough for someone. I’m tired and I just want someone to prove to me that I can also be a priority, I’m tired of always telling people that no matter what they do, I will understand them, will forgive them but only takes that for granted. For once I just want someone to tell me “you got me” and proves it everyday.
