the actor liked my picture enough to have it in his character folder

Something different - Not a fan fiction but a story based around

Ever since our end of year exams had finished, I had gone back to doing what I love best - dating fictional characters. It had been so long since I checked the apps that I had completely missed all of the new stories out as a result of me turning off my notifications in case of distractions. For the first time in a while, I opened one of the apps and next thing I know I’ve downloaded a new app and compiled a list of the characters I wanted with the price. Coming to a hefty total, I dipped into my savings with enough to buy a set of iTunes gift vouchers. Unfortunately, there’s nowhere so close by that I can walk to get them so I decided to use this opportunity to have a day out with my friends. It was only me, Angelina and Lee that decided to go out since the others were busy but I was excited to spend the day with my two best friends.
After a little bit of shopping and wondering shops, playing a very dangerous game of ‘guess the price’ while shopping in River Island, I finally got to a shop where they sold gift vouchers. Ange knew a lot more about my virtual haven that Lee did but the first question she had to ask was,
“Does your boyfriend know about this?” That was a big, fat no.
“Are you insane? I still can’t believe I have a boyfriend given my past relationship experience. I sure as hell won’t bring this up and drive him off when he sees the folder of otome apps on my phone.” I’ve been particularly careful to hide my phone from Kyle in case he sees the apps, the screenshots, my tumblr, wattpad or even my notes section where I’m writing fan fiction. Ever since I asked him out and he said yes, I swore I would never let him find out about this for obvious reasons. Of course, Ange decided to be my friend and not tell him but also decided to be a biatch and use it against me. How often I’ve heard,
“Please could you buy me something when you get your lunch?”
“Go get it yourself.”
“Shall I tell Kyle that you spent £25 on an iTunes gift voucher for a dating sim?”
“… Would you like a brownie or a flapjack?”
“Brownie please!” She’ll chime with the sickliest of smiles. Even still, she will listen to my emotional outbursts or ask whether lovestruck have released a new lesbian yet. Her favourite so far is Aurora James.
Lee on the other hand barely knows anything about it. All that he knows is from disputes he’s settled between me and Ange when we show him characters and ask whether they are good looking or not. Genuinely. Most of the time they are.
I tried to be subtle when buying my vouchers along with a drink but Lee caught me at the till.
“Two vouchers? That’s a lot. Are they for someone’s birthday?”
“No, they’re just for me. I want to make purchases on my iPad.”
“What are you spending so much on?” This time Ange butts into the conversation.
“You know when we show you those guys and ask for your opinion? It’s for that.” He just looked at me like, 'WTF?’
“How much do you spend on those games?”
“Not much. It’s like £3.99 which is good when you think about how expensive other books are.”
“Still that’s a lot of money. If it were me I would have bought a new wardrobe or loads of makeup.”
“Well, that’s you. You know I don’t like makeup and I’ve got enough clothes so buying more just seems pointless to me. I’d rather save up all of my money and spend it whenever instead of splurging it as soon as I get it. You choose makeup and-” Just then, Ange cuts me off.
“-And you choose fictional characters.”
“Exactly!” Then comes the dreaded question.
“Does Kyle know about it?”
“What do you think?”
“Tell him. He has to know.”
“No, he doesn’t.” Why is everyone so persistent about me telling my boyfriend that I play romance sims?
“Why not?”
“Cause it’s just SO cool that I’m sure he would fall deeper in love with me.” My voice drips with sarcasm.
“Just be honest. If he really loves you, he wouldn’t care.” I don’t think they realise how much I cherish my boyfriend that I don’t want to do anything to jeopardise our relationship. Kyle is one of the coolest guys I know. He’s really popular for being so easy to talk to. We’ve been friends for a while although I was never as close to him as other people are. I convinced him to come to one of my shows - Rock of Ages - and he loved it so much saying how much fun it must be to be a part of our group. Knowing how he would be accepted immediately since he’s an amazing dancer, I convinced him to join. Of course he was accepted and we started spending more time together until I finally grew a pair and told him how I felt. I’ve grown up on the belief that you don’t ask for something, you don’t get so I thought at least they would know about my feelings and there might have been a possibility that they would say yes. Honestly, I was expecting a no which usually happened followed by them making fun of me; just shows they were the wrong people to catch feelings for. I had a good feeling that Kyle wouldn’t tease me and that he would let me down gently. Turns out he thought I was sweet and wanted to try going out. He thought if you reject love, you’ll probably never find it. Turns out we’re both philosophical. I didn’t want to lose him. He’s WAY out of my league. Just imagine a pro dancer, amazing actor, smart, friendly, sports beast going out with an otaku introvert who spends their free time playing otome games. Yeah… enough said.
Once I bought my vouchers, we had Greggs pasties for lunch and went to our secret hang out on this building roof with a car park that no one ever goes. Getting home after six, I started making my purchases.

Our group decided to go out again and I managed to buy and read all of the stories I wanted to. Ange is usually more interested and asks what I spent my money on which results in me babbling as if I was on five energy drinks.
“Well, I bought all of Toma season one from irresistible, Rikiya’s season 3 from school affairs, all of the My Mr Jealousy stories from scandal along with Chiaki’s season 3 from our two bedroom. My heart can’t take it. Chiaki got jealous because this photographer proposed to the MC but Chiaki has really low self esteem because of his childhood. Toma is a cheeky bugger but I absolutely love him. They gave each other nicknames like neophyte and Todd because he acts like a toddler. I feel that he’s the most realistic character because they show his passion for his work instead of just the MC-”
“You on about those games again?” Lee interrupts.
“Yeah. They’re soooo good!”
“I’m gonna tell Kyle you play them.”
“You know what, Lee, I know you won’t because you’re all introverts. Who’s going to tell him when none of you have had a proper conversation with him? That’s what I thought. You won’t tell him.” I should have thought about that ages ago when I told Ange. She’s especially shy when it comes to talking to new people. I remember when we first met, she was quiet until she found out I watched black butler and our friendship took off. There’s no way they will tell Kyle.

A few days later, there was another story I wanted to read so I was doing so in the living room while my mum popped out to get some shopping. While I was smiling at my phone in my dream world, I was interrupted by a knock on my window. The last person I expected to see was there - Kyle! Usually he calls if he wants to come over but this time, he’s just come and he looks a little fidgety. Locking my phone, I put it down and answer the door. Kyle just immediately starts talking.
“Sorry, Babe. I know I call usually but Lee just texted me saying you were cheating on me with someone called Todd. I trust you, it’s just, I never talk to Lee so to hear that from him, I freaked out a little. I trust you, really, but whose Todd?” Lee! You didn’t!
“No no no no no! You don’t have to worry about Todd.” Geez, that came out wrong. “What I mean is he isn’t what you think.”
“Can I see your phone? It would just make me feel better if I see your messages and it’s just a friendship.” Now I’ve made him doubt me… It’s about time I’m honest and told him, even if he doesn’t like me afterwards. I take his hand and lead him into the living room. Picking up my phone, I go into the app and give it to Kyle.
“This is Todd. I’m not cheating on you; it’s just a game.” I point to Toma and select a random chapter as I start tapping the screen. I can’t even look him in the eye, I’m so embarrassed. This is harder than I thought. Kyle just keeps tapping and reading while his expression remains unreadable. For the first time in what feels like hours which is only minutes, he makes an affirming sound and speaks.
“Hm. So that’s it. That’s alright then.” Jesus, I didn’t even know I was holding my breath until I let it go.
“I started playing them about three years ago so before we were going out I want to specify. I just carried on playing since I kind of invested so much time on them.”
“Them? How many are there?” I press the home button which takes him to the folder full of them. Some with particularly embarrassing pictures.
“I’m sorry I didn’t tell you, Kyle, but for obvious reasons I couldn’t.”
“Why not? It’s cute. I didn’t know you were into this.” Did… did he just… what? My face feels ridiculously warm. I bet it’s completely red right now.
“You don’t mind?”
“No. I’d prefer this than to find out you’re cheating on me.”
“You’re too amazing. I would never cheat on you.” One of the things I love about Kyle the most is when he’s cool and collected, if you give him a compliment he starts grinning like a child while aww-ing with thank yous. His smile makes me weak. It’s like it’s my kryptonite.
Giving my phone back to me, I put it in my pocket and Kyle treads forward a little to wrap his arms around me. Despite going out for a few months, we’re still a little shy doing stuff like this. I didn’t think I would find a guy at my age who wouldn’t be like other guys our age, who just love the attention in a relationship. It really seems like he loves me personally. I would have never guessed that he would also accept my hobbies as a part of me. Especially one with other guys in my life, even if they are all fictional.

Tender Pt. 2

Pairing: Sebastian Stan x Reader

Summary: Sebastian plans to use to Tom to find information, and learns more than he ever expected.

Warnings: Talk of masturbation.

<< Prev .  Next >>

Sebastian took the opportunity to check his watch while he waited for the next fan to finish talking to Tom. There was a little over half an hour left before they had to get ready for the photo ops. He scanned the line and felt a little disappointed at not seeing the girl. He tried to be optimistic. After all, they were scheduled for several events over the next four days. He figured he’d have to run into her at some point if she was a fan.

“So, do you or the other Grumps have anything scheduled for today?” he heard Tom ask. He looked over curiously at the boy at hearing that word again. And again, he wondered what, or who, the hell a ‘grump’ was.

“No, today is strictly for fun. The others are getting pictures with the Game of Thrones cast right now.” the fan, an older man with salt and pepper hair, answered.  

“Oh good.” Tom was visibly relieved. “I tried really hard to have enough room in my schedule to make it to some of your guys’ events.”

High School Crush- Sebastian Stan

Heyyy! Sorry I took forever:( I’m working on the requests guys!!! Hope you like this one, I personally loved it!


Word count: 1.7K

Warnings: None (?)

Walking through the stage, you say your lines perfectly. It’s been three years since you finished your studies. You did the drama career, although your parents were unsure about your decision. You worked really hard and went to multiple auditions and castings. You got little roles on some TV shows and movies, but nothing important. Finally, after three years and a lot of sweat and effort, you got an important role. You were acting on a theater on New York and you were representing Romeo and Juliet.

Of course, you are Juliet. Your Romeo is non other than Sebastian Stan himself. When you found out about it, you almost turned down the role. He is your crush since you were about fifteen years old and you saw him in The Covenant. With twenty five years old, it’s not like you are obsessed with him or anything, but still it was embarrassing when the director told you that he was the other main character in the play.

Sebastian is the sweetest person you have ever had the pleasure to meet. And that just makes it harder for you to stay cool when he is next to you. When the rehearsals started, you were doing fine. It was exciting and funny, but then you started to talk to him and basically to know him better and you couldn’t help but fall in love with him.

You still remember your teenage years, when the walls in your room were full of Seb’s pictures and you had his name written all over your folders and agendas. Obviously, your high school crush evolved and now it was just a normal, adult crush. You though that acting next to him would be difficult, since you can’t stop thinking about him, but whenever you look at his blue irises it’s like he is silently encouraging you to do it and everything just flows.

Picking up your bag and all your things, you head out of your dressing room and into the stage. You go down to the main floor and look at the big stage in front of you. Tomorrow is the opening night and you can’t avoid but be nervous about it. What if you mess up? Or if the audience thinks you are not talented enough?

“What are you still doing here?” You turn around when you hear a voice and smile.

Your eyes meet Seb’s blue irises and you smile when you see his little smirk. He looks really good. His hair is not too short or too long, the perfect length for you to run your hands through it. He is wearing a navy blue sweatshirt, jeans and black boots.

“I was just about to leave.” You laugh nervously and look at the red seats that surround you.

“Are you nervous for tomorrow?”


“Don’t be, you’ll do it fine.”

“What if I don’t?” Sebastian approaches you and puts his hands on your shoulders. “What if I mess up a line?”

“I’ll fix it, I’m an amazing actor.”

“Seb I’m serious!” You try to keep a straight face but his giggle makes you smile.

“Stop worrying, you are an awesome actress and you worked really hard on this role, you are going to shine tomorrow.” Sebastian squeezes your shoulders and you smile at him. “What if we go grab some food and then I’ll drop you at your apartment?”

“Sounds good to me.”

Sebastian takes you to an Italian restaurant and you ask for a pizza. During the dinner, you don’t think about tomorrow at all. Sebastian has this power over you, when you are with him it’s like the whole world just disappears. You can only think about his beautiful blue eyes looking at you, about his nose scrunching whenever you make him laugh, about his lips moving while he talks to you, about his hand running through his perfect hair.

You stuff a slice of pizza on your mouth because you are about to drool right in front of him. Sebastian’s eyes are glowing while he talks about his life back in Romania. You smile widely at him loving how he looks when he talks so passionately and lovingly about something. When he finishes his pasta, he excuses himself to go to the bathroom. You sigh and close your eyes. If you could get up and go with him to that bathroom… You shook your head, trying to scare away this thoughts. You are ten years younger than him, he probably sees you like a little girl.

Sebastian comes back, his smile never leaving his face. You take a sip of your wine, your eyes never leaving his.

“So, someone special coming tomorrow to see you? Maybe your boyfriend?” You choke at his question, you didn’t expect him to bring in this topic.

“My parents and my sister are coming. I don’t have a boyfriend.”

“How is it possible that a beautiful girl like you doesn’t have a boyfriend?” You feel your cheeks becoming red at his words, but convince yourself that he is just fooling around.

“Didn’t find the right guy, yet. What about you? Who is coming to see you? Maybe your girlfriend?” You bit your lip wishing that he tells you that he is as single as you are.

“My mum and my stepfather are coming. I don’t have a girlfriend, though.”

“And how is it possible that a handsome man like you doesn’t have a girlfriend?” You have a big smirk on your face, a teasing look on your eyes. Sebastian lets out a little chuckle and looks at you.

“Didn’t find the right girl, yet.”

You smile and put your elbows on the table, your face resting on your left hand.

“So, you have not been lucky with love?”

“No, I had some serious relationships but it never worked out. I guess you haven’t been lucky, either?”

You have a small smile and you don’t know if the sudden confidence is because of the wine, but you don’t really care right now. Sebastian looks really sexy to you and you lick your bottom lip, dreaming about those big hands all over your body.

“I had just one serious relationship, but the dude turned out to be a dickhead.”

“No one special right now?”

“Well…” You look down and look back at him. “There’s this guy. He is really handsome. Like really handsome. And he is so sweet and funny and caring, almost perfect. I have had this massive crush on him since forever. But he is oldest than me and I think he sees me as a little girl, so I don’t think I have a single chance with him.”

“I’m oldest than you and let me tell you, you don’t look like a little girl. You look like a beautiful, powerful woman. If he doesn’t like you, then he is probably another dickhead.”

You look at Sebastian and you swear the whole world just stopped. Your breath is heavier than usual and you feel your mouth go dry. Sebastian runs his pink tongue over his bottom lip and you can’t avoid your eyes following every movement. A waiter puts the bill on your table and you come back to reality. After arguing with Sebastian about who’s going to pay, he wins and pays for the meal.

Sebastian drives you back to your apartment and he gets out of the car to walk you to the door. You play with the keys of your house, not knowing if you should confess your feelings. You know it’s not the right time, tomorrow is the play and you need to concentrate and to not mess things up, but the tension you feel around him makes you want to throw up. You turn around, almost bumping with him. The yellow color of the streetlights make his skin look darker and you lock eyes with him for the hundredth time during the night.

“Well, good night.” Seb smiles at you.

“Wait, uhm… You remember what I told you about the guy I like? He actually works with me.” Seb presses his lips together, as if trying to stop a smirk. “And he is a huge dork. I’m constantly dropping hints, but it’s like he doesn’t catch any. And I don’t know if he feels the same way about me, if he doesn’t or if he is just a clueless, stupid man.” You look down, but Seb’s fingers grab your chin, making you look up at him.

“I would say that he feels the same way about you.” Your eyes light up and you feel his face becoming closer to yours.

Finally, Seb closes the gap between the both of you. His lips taste much better than what you imagined. He is soft and caring, one of his hands cupping your cheek and the other on your waist, holding you close to him. Your hands are on his hair and you feel like you could stay like this forever. Sadly, you need air and you have to break the kiss, a big grin already on your face.

“I’ll see you tomorrow, my Juliet.” Seb pecks your lips one more time before walking to his car.

Before getting in, he looks at you one more time.

“That thing you said, about having a crush on me, was that true?”

“I saw you for the first time in The Covenant and I felt in love. But don’t get too cocky about it Stan, it was an awful movie anyway!”

Sebastian puts a hand on his chest, an offended look on his face. You laugh and run to him, jumping into his arms. He grabs your waist immediately and you wrap your legs around his waist, kissing his lips one more time.

“It’s really late to drive, you should stay at my place…” Sebastian laughs and pecks your lips.

“We need to sleep today, tomorrow is a big day.”

“We are going to sleep, but we can have some fun before doing that.” You raise your eyebrows and bit your lip, his eyes already getting darker at your proposal.

With your legs still wrapped around him, Sebastian walks to the door of your apartment. You put your feet on the floor and look for your keys.

“I like the way you think, darling.”

Finally, you open the door and before you can answer to him, his lips are already back on yours.

Lighting Mary 2 - TSOT and HLV

First: Huge thanks to constancecream for sending me her #setlock photos! It helped me answer some questions about how they lit the Leinster Gardens outdoor scene. I also got a kick out of hearing your whispered conversations in German–while on set in the UK–and then you send me the file in America–what a world we live in!

Also, I’ve just learned to make gifs, and I’ll update this post with them when I get my hands on some .avi files. In the meantime, reams of screencaps.

Sooooo much Mary mystery in TSOT and HLV. So much to look at.
