the daily hand off

Hostage

This is part of my submission for Nalu Week 2017. I do not own Fairy Tail, Hiro Mashima does.

Rated: T for foul language, slight violence, and slightly suggestive themes.

Prompt: Mask

Pairing: Natsu/Lucy (Nalu)

Words: 9.8K

Summary: Lucy takes revenge to a whole new level when she comes face to face with the elusive ‘Salamander’, who is making a name for himself as Fiore’s newest bank robber. Modern AU, Humor/Romance

Read on FF.net or AO3.

Disclaimer: I don’t know much about banks. Most of my information came from the internet, so I apologize if any of this is inaccurate.


Lucy slammed her eyes shut in aggravation as she listened to her father ramble over the phone. She tried to cut in three times to tell him her opinion, but he always raised his voice so he could talk over her. After the last attempt, she gave up, letting him talk until his heart’s content.

“The experience you gain today will help you when you get to where I am. Knowing the ins and outs of the business will-”

Lucy stopped listening, holding her phone away from her ear far enough so she couldn’t hear exactly what he was saying, but close enough that she could jump in when he stopped talking.

Her father was hellbent on her staying on as a teller at the bank. It all started when she said she was thinking of taking off a few days a week to focus on writing. Apparently, her father thought that meant she was quitting, so he started ranting about the benefits of working up the line, gaining this experience, and blah blah blah.

Lucy had heard his speech a million times. He told it to her so much she could recite it back to him, but of course he would only call her a smart aleck and tell her she needed to learn some manners.

His speech was wasted though. Lucy had no intentions of staying with the bank, at least not for the rest of her life. She wanted to be an author, to write mysteries and adventures. When she told her father that, he laughed at the idea.

“You need a real job,” he would say. “Who’s going to take over the business when I retire?”

Lucy didn’t know, but she did know it wasn’t going to be her. She had plans for her life, and they didn’t involve counting money all day. She needed excitement!

Lucy stole a peek at her clock, frowning when she saw the time. Risking death by boredom, she put her phone against her ear to talk to her father.

“-and another thing. Did you know-”

“Hey! You’ll have to tell me some other time. I’m going to be late for work.”

“Well that’s not very responsible of you. How will it look having you show up late?”

“I’m guessing not good,” she said, proud of herself for keeping her voice calm despite her growing aggravation. Before he could monopolize the conversation again, she asked, “Can you just think about what I said. I would only need two more days off a week. That shouldn’t cause any problems. Plus, I can afford to take that time off.”

“I’m not concerned about money!” her father yelled, causing her eyes to narrow. “I’m concerned about your lack of responsibility. You are a Heartfilia. You have to-”

“Sorry! Gotta go!” Lucy cut him off before hanging up her phone, sighing when she saw her screen turn black. She pressed a hand to her forehead, cooling herself off. She always got worked up talking to her father. He was as hard-headed as they come.

With a long sigh, Lucy composed herself before heading out the door. She had work soon. Even if she hated her job and disliked her father for making her work there -he threatened to pull her college fund if she quit her job, she still didn’t want to make a bad impression there. Like her father said, she was still a Heartfilia.

Yay :) I would live to just see that pregnancy one continued from where it ended. Where ever you want to take it. And thank you for writing :)

Niall’s excitement about this pregnancy was palpable.  He was like a kid on Christmas morning, but every morning.  He bought every single pregnancy book there was.  He insisted on putting together the nursery and all of the furniture himself.  He went to every doctor appointment and when it came time to take pregnancy pictures, he was the one who picked the photographer and the theme.  

He proudly walked around announcing how many weeks along you were and whipped out ultrasound photos whenever anyone even slightly mentioned the word pregnancy.

It was exhausting yet strangely comforting to see him so invested in becoming a father.  The only problem was he all but refused to touch her once her belly started showing.  No matter how many times the doctor assured him he wouldn’t hurt anything Niall just couldn’t get the idea out of his head that he would somehow upset the delicate balance inside her body.

So for the last four months or so, she had been forced into celibacy.  And it was quickly becoming excruciatingly difficult not to scream out in crowded rooms just how badly she needed to be claimed.

No need to apologize you’re just fine sorry for the wait♡

Your match up is….Laito Sakamaki 

Originally posted by itsclowreedsfault

Laito loves your body. You cannot stop him from repeatedly reminding you about how much he adores every inch of you. He doesn’t mind showing you either. Finds himself teasing you pretty much daily.

Laito loves to watch you blush when he says off handed comments or when he makes passes at you. Laito tries to be cheerful around you which isn’t too hard since he’s pretty much comes off as a happy chatty perverted person. Although he himself has issues when his past he tries to put your needs first making sure you’re happy.

Laito does enjoy spending time doing the things you love. Watching anime is pretty fun as well, but he sometimes tries to get you to watch hentai sometimes. Walks on the beach are quite relaxing, and of course he loves the things you grow in your garden. Food is best made by the one you love.

Laito loves how open minded you can be. People only tend to look at him one way, but you seem to love everything about him. Just like you he enjoys new things and he doesn’t hesitate to jump right In. You’re able to read laito’s emotions pretty easily and this is a slight advantage for you. Laito isn’t really one to get mad, but his body language says a lot. The first time you met Laito you knew he was different. Yes, he was a pervert, abd a bit two faced, but you didn’t let that stand in your way. Honestly Laito loved how determined you were.

Laito finds your style very alluring and interesting. He especially loves your piercings. Laito wanted to give you a piercing himself to mark you, but you warned him that that probably wasn’t the best thing to do.

Although you isolate yourself at times, Laito refuses to leave you be. He can be quite annoyingly childish at times, but he feels the last thing you need is to be alone at times like that. While it’s clear how shy you can be Laito loves to see you riled up. Especially when you’re upset. It’s very cute and entertaining in his opinion.

All things aside you’re very interesting and you have caught Laito’s eye. He loves you and he’s not afraid to show the whole world who you belong to.

Interested in you … Ruki Mukami 

Originally posted by yakumocchi

Like Laito, the first thing that caught his eye was your style, and the way you presented yourself. The way you dressed didn’t match your personality at all. Your shy and fragile nature didn’t match Laito’s in the lest. You were genuinely kind for no reason, and honestly he hated it. He found it annoying, but very endearing as time went on. His demeanor would soften in your presence, and he wondered why. Why a mere human was making feel this way. Ruki soon came to realize that he saw you more than livestock. Ruki is indeed prepared to talk his way into your relationship with Laito and completely tear it to ruins. He’s aware of all your illnesses and has even started studying you body language. Ruki feels the need to show you that he deems you worthy of being with him…by any means necessary.

(Sorry for the long wait fiend I hope you enjoyed, and I hope you’re doing alright @diabolik-bitchchan)

17.) A Shy Kiss (and thank you, anon!)

All was quiet that night. Ladybug and Cat Noir were sitting together on top of a building, overlooking the glow of Paris in the evening. Lights shimmered in the distance, including the lights adorning the Eiffel Tower. The two heroes were silent for a while, until the black cat cleared his throat.

“It’s, uh…” he started. “It’s a beautiful night out, tonight.”

Ladybug shook her head in agreement. “Yes, it is. Paris is always the most entrancing against the evening sky.” She looked down at her swaying feet, refusing to look at Cat.

It was a pretty stressful day for them. An akuma was running wild today after school had let out. They had defeated it, but the fight took a lot out of them. Both were unaware that their transformation was about to wear off. Luckily, they were out of the public eye when they reverted back to normal, but they were unable to hide from each other. Both of them learned who the real person was behind the mask. Marinette almost fainted, but Adrien was ecstatic to know that the girl of his dreams was one of his own classmates. Marinette tried to run away, but Adrien caught her wrist before she could escape. He asked her to meet him later that night so they could talk about a few things. Although hesitant, Marinette agreed and took off without another word. To Adrien’s relief, Ladybug did show up tonight. He was afraid she wouldn’t because how she responded earlier.

He sighed and looked away from the city skyline to look at her.

“You know,” he said sheepishly, “I’m actually glad it turned out this way.”

Ladybug picked her head up, still looking towards the lights on the horizon. “What do you mean?”

“I mean…I’m glad it’s you,” he repsonded.

Ladybug shook her head and finally looked at Cat. “What do you mean you’re glad?” she almost whispered. “I always thought you would be…disappointed. I’m nothing special.”

Cat moved closer to his partner, looking straight into her eyes. “Why would you even think that?” he questioned. “You’re extraordinary! You’re a hero, you save thousands of people daily, you…”

He was cut off when Ladybug put her hand over his mouth. “That’s Ladybug. She’s the hero of Paris. Marinette was terrified just trying to talk to you, Adrien.” She took her hand off his mouth and put both hands in her lap. She sighed and looked down again.

She didn’t see it, but Cat was blushing. He never knew Marinette liked him. Was he that dumb? Cat took his hand and placed on Ladybug’s chin, moving her head so she was looking at him again.

“I’m sorry,” he apologized. “I feel so stupid. I must have been really blind not to see the girl I was longing for was sitting right behind me.”

Ladybug couldn’t help but blush. She smiled at Cat as tears started welling up in her eyes. Cat took his thumb and wiped the tears away before any could fall.

They stayed quiet for what like an eternity, but without thinking, they started to lean towards each other. They both started to blush, closing their eyes, until finally, their lips met. They kissed for only a moment before the pulled away, their faces still red.

Cat smiled nervously as Ladybug buried her face in her hands.

“I can’t believe I just did that!” she said quietly. 

Cat chuckled, making Ladybug look at him. “If it’s any consolation, my lady,” he cooed, “you are an exceptional kisser.”

If her face wasn’t red before, it sure was now. She laughed lightly, playfully shoving Cat away from her. “You weren’t half bad yourself, kitty,” she teased. She leaned her head on Cat’s shoulder and closed her eyes, blissfully unaware of the world around her. “I’m glad it turned out this way, too.”

“Off the Hook” headcanon

It’s amazing how much characterisation Off the Hook have, even from the few interactions we’ve seen already. You can just see the dynamic in their animations; how Pearl is portrayed as hard-edged and direct, whereas Marina is portrayed as almost shy and has a smoother demeanour. They’re like an odd couple.

Headcanon: I think Pearl’s actually thin-skinned and Marina comes to her help when she has a meltdown.

Pearl is strongly opinionated but emotionally very “fast”. She’s quick to anger and feels down just as quickly afterwards. Most people never see that side of her (as it goes against her idol persona) but Marina, as her working partner, sees it daily.

Marina, on the other hand, appears shy, laughing off nervously when Pearl goes into one of her rants (which happens every few minutes).

When together, Marina knows Pearl is always on the verge of saying the wrong thing to the wrong person on a rant, and having a huge argument ensue - but she’s always there to defend her friend, because she understands how she gets when hardly anyone else does.

Pearl, on the other hand, helps Marina with her shyness, always jumping in front to be the “face” of Off the Hook if she sees Marina is uncomfortable.

Browning

Elizabeth Barrett Browning goes up to the counter. The barista begins to speak to her in perfect meter, asking what she’d like to drink. Not missing a beat, she responds:

“How do I take my coffee? Let me count the ways.

With cream and sugar, syrups, foam, milk - light.

You never reach the bottom with a trenta’s height,

For the ends of frappuccinos ne’er have Grace.

I take it in the morning with the rays

Of that great sun, and drink ‘till full daylight.

I take it freely, as men strive for Right;

I take it purely, as they turn from Praise.

I take it with Passion put to use

In Tazo teas, and with my childhood’s faith.

I take it rapidly and never lose

A single drop, — I take it with the breath,

Smiles, tears, of all baristas!—and, if God choose,

I would drink coffee daily until death.”

Moments later, barista and customer join hands and run off to Italy together. This turns out not to be a great career move for the barista, because he can’t find a single Starbucks anywhere.

Assassins' Daily Adventures - Malfunction

“Get your fucking hand off Haruki,” Isuke growled.

“That’s what I’m trying to do,” Sumireko impatiently replied, pulling at her prosthetic arm, but to no avail; her mechanical hand kept tightly gripping Haruki’s hand.

Haruki groaned in pain when Sumireko’s robotic fingers curled themselves even tighter around her hand. “Just hurry up before the sun sets.”

Sumireko’s eyes widened and she doubled her efforts, but Isuke just asked, “Why?”

A loud crash startled them and they turned around to see Shinya smash the rest of the door into pieces with her huge sledgehammer before she entered the room.

“I’ve come to free you, Sagae,” she cackled, one eye twitching. “I heard you’re ambidextrous, so I hope you won’t mind losing one arm!”

anonymous asked:

Can you write bellarke fluff of them having to be up early in the morning and there's sleepy kisses and messy hair and aaaaaah pleeease?

Clarke shifted slightly, feeling the chill from the morning creep up, moving her body closer into the warmness of the sheets and the arms around her. Sometimes, when she woke up and sleepiness still bogged her down, she would find herself surprised that there were arms around her and that she wasn’t alone, but then the memories would flood back and a smile always found an almost permanent space on her face.
