Pairing: platonic Pennywise x child reader

Warning: Fluff and daddy Pennywise(not in that way ya nasties)

A/N: This was requested by @fandomnationwhore 

“Could you do one where Pennywise adopts the reader as his kid because she doesn’t judge him or is scared of him maybe she has a disorder which makes her attracted to blood or something”- hope you enjoy darlings!~


 Disgusting flesh bags with a knack for destroying everything that came into contact with them, but the one good thing and the most delicious quality about them was their persistence and their fear.

I want more for us.

I want to be able to hold you.
To protect you from the things you fear and the doubts I know you have because, we make it work.
We always have and we always will.
Love is the building block that we will use as the foundation to our home.

I want to live with you, hold hands, and grow old with you.
all that sappy stuff, I want to do.
Even if we try something and don’t like it it’s okay because all the time we spend together now will lead into the betterment of our years.

Ones when wanting more for us is obsolete because, we already have each other and thats all I can ask for.

The fire signs ♈♌♐ are the most concerned with the appearance of their physical bodies, the fiery spirit and their relationship with their earthly containers is fear, prompting the feeling of being trapped in a vessel that grows old, produces unfavorable bodily fluids, wrinkles, gains weight and sickness. The fiery spirit is active, volatile, free, youthful, and adventurous; being confined to a body is an inconvenience, a tragedy, and it is typically why fire is known to be athletic and exaggerating in their health regimes as to maintain the flesh that their spirits are unwillingly intertwined with

  • Let’s start out by saying that Diana is very cautious at first
  • Ever since Steve died, she thought she would never be able to love again
  • Especially a woman
  • Diana spent decades alone because she was afraid to love someone
  • When she found you she was confused about her feelings
  • She felt the same way she did when she was with Steve
  • You on the other hand, already knew you felt the same way about women as you did with men
  • So when you met Diana you were struck by cupid’s bow
  • You met her at one of Bruce’s galas
  • One of the waiters was passing by with glasses of champagne and only one was left
  • You both reached out for it
  • You guys held hands for like 2 seconds and it was magical
  • Diana was mesmerized by how beautiful you looked under the dim light
  • You could say the same for her to
  • There was an immediate connection there ;)
  • After that incident you started to notice her more and more
  • You’re Bruce’s personal assistant so you make lots of calls for him and run errands for him
  • This means you call Diana sometimes when Bruce needs something from her
  • You tricked her into going on a date with you because she kept rejecting you
  • You told her Bruce wanted to meet at a restaurant to discuss business about the Justice League
  • You told Bruce your plan and literally paid for your fucking dress because he already ships you to together
  • So Diana got there on time and sat at the table you reserved for you two
  • You got there a few minutes late just to make sure she was there first
  • When she saw you she was literally a mess
  • But a beautiful mess of course
  • She was very surprised but glad that she stayed to talk because that’s where everything took off
  • She started asking you out more often
  • Diana was actually the one who asked you to be her girlfriend
  • She set up a while candlelit dinner at your apartment while you were working
  • Did you know that Diana Prince is the most adorable person ever? Yup, she is
  • She set up only one glass of champagne because that’s how you first met
  • So you ate and shared a glass of champagne peacefully and then she grabbed your hand from across the table and gave the most beautiful speech and asked you to be her girlfriend
  • You of course said yes and kissed her like it was the last kiss you would ever share with her
  • Then things turned heated ;)
  • Her clothes came off
  • Your clothes came off
  • It was her first time sleeping with a woman so you made it memorable for her
  • You had been with women before so you knew just how to make her feel good
  • A few toys were involved
  • She basically passed out from all the pleasure
  • But you woke her up gently to make her go pee and you helped her clean up
  • She suggested taking a bath
  • How could you say no to that face, honestly
  • So you ran a bubble bath and got two glasses of wine
  • You both sat in the bathtub facing each other talking about your future together
  • “Diana?”
  • “Yes, love?”
  • “Are you sure you want to be with me?”
  • Diana was so confused because you were the one who was so determined to make her yours and now that she was, you were doubting yourself about it
  • “Why would you ask that? Of course I do”
  • Then you told her about your fear of growing old without her. Eventually losing her
  • She frowned and you instantly regretted bringing up the subject
  • If Diana was being honest with herself, she also had that fear
  • She just held both your hands and looked at you lovingly and proceeded to tell you that she loves you and she will never lose you
  • That was the first time she told you that she loved you and you were brought to tears
  • “I love you to, Diana”
  • You and Diana spent lots of time together after that
  • You were both proud to be with each other
  • Of course Bruce secretly was so obsessed with your relationship
  • His conversations with Barry often consisted of talking about your relationship
  • Barry is very annoyed with this but he also loves your relationship
  • Double dates with Lois and Clark are the best ok don’t fight me
  • You love taking her out on old fashioned dates like drive-in movies or 50’s themed diners cause you know that she loves it
  • She’s showed you lots of old music to
  • Diana also showed you how to swing dance, it was difficult but a fun experience
  • You fell on your butt many times
  • Diana almost passed out because of how much she was laughing
  • Diana isn’t too interested in talking about her past with anyone but with you, she’ll answer any questions
  • She even has told you about Themyscira and all the Amazonian warriors
  • She even started training you so you could defend yourself
  • Of course she would always be there to protect you but she just wanted you to be able to fight for yourself if the day ever came
  • After training you would shower together and the cuddle in either one of your apartments
  • Diana wasn’t a fan of being apart from you constantly so she bought a big apartment for the both of you
  • She gave you the key as a birthday gift and you were so thrilled to finally be able to share everything with her
  • I think Bruce was more excited about you moving in than you were because he rented the biggest moving truck and he drove it himself back and forth with your stuff
  • “That’s all your stuff y/n. Have fun love birds!!!!! Don’t get pregnant… oh wait.”
  • You and Diana had already discussed having children but came to the conclusion not to because she would have to watch that child grow up and eventually die while she stays the same
  • That would be too much pain for her, she already is going to have to go through the same thing with you
  • A second time would be too much
  • You adopted a dog and two cats instead
  • All girls
  • The cats were named Macy and Jade and your dog was called Bella
  • You were more than happy with your little family 

I couldn’t resist not writing headcannons for Diana. I literally wrote this in under 12 hours. Let me know who you want me to write about next! Feedback is always appreciated to! 

I will fight your fears

TITLE: I will fight your fears


AUTHOR: mad-about-britain

ORIGINAL IMAGINE: Imagine growing up together with Loki. You were best friends sharing happy moments and your fears, helping each other to conquer them. Now you are adult and meet again; some old memories are coming up on surface bringing to you new and old emotions.


NOTES/WARNINGS: It’s rather big but I don’t think it’s possible to divide it for 2 parts. No warnings just happy tears (well mine at least).Just a cute one shot, full of fluff. Feedback is very welcomed.

Sylvia hadn’t visited Asgardian festivities in quite a long time now. She lived in the other realm for few years and now she’s back. It felt like home here… almost like home. She spent her childhood inside the palace walls; nothing had changed since then but she felt like something was missing or someone. Her eyes roamed through the hall – she found Thor laughing among the other warriors.

‘He hasn’t changed,’ she thought. ‘Well grew up a little’.

Made up fic title: Please just let me stay close; I can't live without you near me

Fic I Would Write For This: Sort of but not really soulmate AU where you’re immortal when with your soulmate but the minute you separate you both begin aging again. Soulmates do not always involve love or work out well but people often chose to stay with them anyway for fear of aging

Viktor is twenty seven, older than most people on earth because he’s still yet to find his soulmate. He lives in fear of being one of the people without a soulmate, destined to grow old and die within less than a century. Everyone around him is frozen in time, forever young while he continues to grow older and older, waiting for the person who will come to stop the process of time forever. 

But then he meets Yuuri, a man who changes Viktor’s whole world in the space of one evening and brings love back into a life that was previously loveless. They might not be soulmates but Viktor grows to love Yuuri far more than any person destiny might have chosen for him. As they grow closer he realises, it’s better to live one lifetime with the person you truly love than let fate choose another for you

Soulmates ... I think (Scott McCall)

PART 1   PART 2   PART 3

i know it’s been a while, so i decided to write something with Scott x reader being soul mates (i’m a hopeless romantic) // thanks for all the attention my blog has received and i hope you enjoy!

ps.  this ‘seeing color when you see your soulmate’ idea is something i read in another imagine a while ago (i don’t know who to credit)  i just really liked the idea, so if you know where the idea originated, let me know please 

pps. this is the longest piece i’ve written (and it’s pretty long, so grab some popcorn)

warning(s): a few bad words

“You know, your father and I met when we were only five.  I remember I saw the apple on our teacher’s desk turn red when -”

I roll my eyes, reciting the story word for word, “- when you locked eyes for the first time.  Mom, I’ve heard this story more times than I can count.  ‘Your father is my soulmate that I was lucky to find as young as I was.  Colors are more incredible than you can imagine.’”  As much as I hate to admit it, this story fills me with an itchy feeling that can only be described as jealousy.  My parents have been able to see color since before they even knew what a soulmate was.  I have been told all my life what yellows and blues look like, but have never been able to experience them for myself.  I’m only eighteen, but I am stuck seeing the world in black and white while people all around see the blast of color that comes with finding your soulmate.

I hope I can find my person soon.  If it takes any longer, I’m afraid I will never meet them.  I mean, what if they live halfway across the world?

Apart from the fear of growing old alone, I am starting my final year before college at a new school.  As if life isn’t hard enough already.

As any other day, I wake up too early to be healthy for a developing mind and get ready, heading to Beacon Hills High, my home for the next year.

Opening the doors, I am overwhelmed by the sea of students all rushing to their first classes and only seconds after the bell rings, I am alone.

“Great start to your first day, asshole.”  I huff a few obscenities to myself while searching for the main office or my AP Bio class, whichever comes first.  “I guess hitting the effin’ snooze button four times wasn’t the best idea.  You couldn’t just -”  I stop my self-deprecating monologue as I come upon the room number for Mrs. Finch.  Here goes nothing.

Fingers crossed behind my back, I lightly knock on the door frame and give an uneasy grin.  “Good morning.  I’m-”

“Yes, you’re the new girl.  We were just going over the syllabus for the year.  Your assigned lab partner for the year is…”  Her finger skims her list and I keep my head down, disappointed I made a bad impression during my first interaction at my new school.  “Ah, here you are.  You’re partner is Scott McCall.  Back left table.”

“Thank you and sorry for interrupting.”  I can feel my cheeks and the tips of my ears burning as I take the long walk of shame to my seat.  Once I’ve gotten my notebook out and Mrs. Finch has resumed her review of the plans for the year, I realize I’ve forgotten a pen.

“Dammit,” I mutter under my breath and hear a little snort from the boy sitting at my table, presumably Scott.  When I look up, he is already staring at me, face so serious, I fear there is a huge spider on my head.  Before I can ask what’s wrong, his black eyes spark and become puppy-dog-brown, the color fanning out to give life to his grey skin and lips.

Holy shit.  I’m seeing color.  My vision blurs as tears spill down my cheeks.  My brain and body freezes as I realize that the moment I’ve been dreaming about since I could understand the term “soulmate” is finally happening.  In a beige classroom of all places.  I look at my hands, my dress, my classmates, and I feel like screaming and jumping around.

I can see color.

After I’ve taken it all in, I turn back to Scott and whisper, so not to disrupt the class again.  “You.  You’re my… I mean, do you… do you see what I’m seeing?”

He suddenly snaps out of his frozen state and clears his throat.  “Sorry, I don’t know what you mean.”  He turns back to the front of the room, frowning and frantically copying down the notes.  Learning is the last thing on my mind as I try to put this all together.  Could I be the only one seeing this?  Is it possible for someone to be your person, but to them, you’re just another stranger?

“Excuse me.  Is there something wrong?”  I look up and realize the teacher and a few of the other kids in the class are waiting for an answer.  I only now realize what I must look like.  Finding my soulmate was supposed to be the happiest moment of my life and instead, I am heartbroken because nothing for him has changed.

“Not really.  Um, may I be excused?”  I grab my bag, shoving my notebook inside and heading for the door.

Little did I know, Scott was shaking his head and watching my retreating figure.

Scott’s POV

I am sitting at an empty lunch table, moving the food around with a fork, not really in the mood to eat anything.  Someone approaching in a hurry catches my attention and I look up to see Stiles.  “Lydia told me what happened in Bio.  Dude, is she the one?  Can you see color?  Is she hot?  Never mind that.  Is she smart?  I mean, she must be, she’s in AP Bio.  Lydia said she left crying.  What did you say?”

“Stiles!  Stiles, please stop.  I’m not in the mood to discuss this.”  I rub my temples, more tired than I’ve felt in a while.

“But Scott, just tell me if she’s the one.”  I see his light brown eyes looking at me expectantly.  I look down and see he is wearing a red and black flannel with a white tee shirt underneath.  His skin is slightly tanned with brown moles all over.  I can tell all of these things because of her.  When I looked in her eyes, everything changed, became more beautiful than I could ever imagine.

But I blew it.

I nod and look at my best friend.  “She is.”

“Then why the hell would you tell her otherwise?  Lydia heard your conversation.  She said you were ruthless when she asked if you saw what she had.  You messed up.”

“Shut up, dude.  You think I don’t know that?  I just… I can’t have her in my life, not now.  With everything that’s going on, I don’t want the girl I am going to spend the rest of my life with to get hurt.  I don’t want her to see what I am.  And guess what, Stiles, my parents were soulmates.  You saw how great that worked out for them!  My dad would get drunk and be violent.  And then they got divorced!  So I’m sorry for not being completely head over heels for this girl I’ve only just met.  I can see color and I’m thankful for that, but soulmates are kind of not my priority right now.”  When I realize how I’ve just sounded, I close my eyes and take a deep breath.  When I open them, Stiles has stood up and is shaking his head at me.

“Jeez, sorry for asking.  I get that the first soulmates you’ve seen didn’t work out, but that doesn’t mean you and this girl are destined to end up the same way.  Let me know when you’re ready to be reasonable about all of this.”  He turns and walks away, shoulders slumped, and I realize this isn’t his fault.  This certainly isn’t her fault.  Hell, it isn’t anyone’s fault.  And I should be happy, ecstatic even.  I’m just not.  I toss out my uneaten food and head for the bathroom, needing to calm down about all of this.  If I get too agitated, I could wolf out.

In my rush, I walk past someone sitting in a nearly abandoned hallway, crying.  Immediately, as if I’ve known her forever, I recognize this person as the girl from Biology.

My soulmate.

She looks up when I pause in front of her and she has mascara-filled tears covering her freckled cheeks.  She uses the back of her hand to clean herself up and she stands.

“Can I help you?”  Damn, she’s mad.  I feel the need to fix her, even though I’m the cause of her pain.

“You’re the new girl, the one from -”

“Yeah, the one from Mrs. Finch’s class who fled the scene after you told me you didn’t notice a change in the world around you.  You know, I see color now.  My whole world has changed and yours hasn’t shifted at all.  Typical.  I’ve always had bad luck, but this shitty situation definitely takes the cake.”  She lets out a small sob and picks up her bag.  “If you don’t mind, I’m gonna go before I punch something.”  As she walks away, I grab her arm lightly.

“Please stay,”  I say quietly, hoping she’ll stay put.

She lets out a sarcastic scoff and I loosen my grip, realizing the situation she is in: she believes she is a defective human with a soulmate who doesn’t see her the way she sees him.  I can practically see her broken heart in her eyes.

“Sorry, this is too hard.”  She turns and swiftly leaves, only her scent remaining.

Did I make a huge mistake by lying to her?  I know this is for her safety and she’s better off not knowing me.  So why do I feel so empty?

Fear, after all, is our real enemy. Fear is taking over our world. Fear is being used as a tool of manipulation in our society. Itʼs how politicians peddle policy and how Madison Avenue sells us things that we donʼt need. Think about it. Fear that weʼre going to be attacked, fear that there are communists lurking around every corner, fear that some little Caribbean country that doesnʼt believe in our way of life poses a threat to us. Fear that black culture may take over the world. Fear of Elvis Presleyʼs hips. Well, maybe that one is a real fear. Fear that our bad breath might ruin our friendships… Fear of growing old and being alone.

“Taako’s latest brush with death is the stupidest, most mundane thing ever. It’s reckless and avoidable, an incident better suited to Magnus or Merle. It’s the kind of shit he thought was done dealing with after hopping planar systems for a hundred years and adventuring for half a dozen more.”  

taakitz hurt/comfort commission fic. warnings for blood, injury, near death experience, er……death?

if you like this fic and want one like it for yourself, or something entirely different but still made out of words, shoot me a message and i’d be happy to talk commission rates! :)

Yeah Jake is very immature, especially for an adult, but a lot of the time he intentionally acts immature for Finn. Jake wants to distract him and make him laugh because Finn is still a kid who’s dealing with really heavy stuff, Jake is the big brother who has to keep his cool while everything is falling apart. If Jake didn’t act that way, Finn would fall apart too. He’s a kid dealing with so much and Jake is just trying to lighten the load and distract Finn from how cruel things are. 

Jake hides how he feels behind this immature facade too, he gave into the ice elemental’s depression the same way Finn gave into the fire elemental’s rage without Jake. The reason he gave into it wasn’t because he was cold, it was because on the inside he was depressed and repressing it. 

Not to mention he’s given Finn incredibly wise advice time and time again throughout the series, and despite his immature personality he does know when to get serious, like when he believed his daughter was kidnapped (Even though Jake Jr ended up being just fine). And he’s actively harmed himself multiple times for Finn, and unlike Finn, who is still a kid, Jake knows when to quit and swallow his pride, like with the Jake suit, he wasn’t about to throw his little bro in an active volcano (But Finn jumped in anyway).

He does go too far at times, like with his granddaughter, but those are chalked up to his desire to be cool and young, because he fears growing old and being old.

TL;DR: Yeah Jake is immature on the surface but there’s a lot more to him
