‘I’m not confident in social situations; just going up to someone in a bar and saying ‘Hi’ going to be even more difficult because they won’t know the real me. They will just know me as a fictional person I play on the screen.’

tbh, i feel like people wouldn’t have been as disappointed in Civil War if it had just been titled that. the film itself isn’t a bad film, it’s a really good film to be honest, the problem is that the product that we got didn’t match up with the title on the packaging. If this film hadn’t been Captain America: Civil War, and had instead just been Civil War, it would have been fine. But it was supposed to be the conclusion of Steve’s trilogy, it was supposed to be Steve’s story, and there just wasn’t enough of Steve in it and that’s why so many Cap fans felt let down.


Teach Me How To Play Pt.1 (Tony Perry, Vic Fuentes, Mike Fuentes, Jaime Preciado) (Pierce The Veil)

Part 2

Word Count: 1,137


You and Tony had been secretly dating behind your brothers backs for the last two months. Your older brothers were Vic and Mike Fuentes and you were off limits to their band members. But that didn’t stop you and Tony developing feelings for each other, everyone joked that you were the female version of Tony because you liked all the same things so it was destined to happen.

Today you were at Tony’s apartment watching movies because you wanted to spend time with your turtle before he went on Warped Tour for the summer without you. Vic and Mike left you two alone to go and spend time with their girlfriends, while Jaime joked about being the third wheel which earnt him a smack from Vic.

After watching the third Star Wars film you excused yourself to get a drink, and while you were in the kitchen you heard a soft melody run through the apartment. You put your drink down and walked back into the living room where Tony sat cross legged in the middle of the cushion for you’d built strumming his acoustic guitar. He’d put his dorky glasses on which he knew you loved. You wanted nothing more than to go over to him and make out but you were lost in the beautiful melody.

Your brothers joked that you had no musical talent, but maybe you could get Tony to teach you how to play the guitar so you could prove them wrong. Plus you already knew how talented Tony was with his fingers so teaching you should be no problem.

“Sorry, I didn’t see you there y/n.”

“Tony will you teach me how to play the guitar?”

Tony simply smiled and motioned for you to join him. He uncrossed his legs and you sat between them getting comfy, before you felt his arms snake around your waist and he started to trail kisses down your throat hitting your sensitive spot.

“God you’re beautiful y/n. If only I could call you mine in public.”

“I know turtle but my brother are overprotective. Now teach me the ways of the guitar master Jedi.”

Tony hummed in approval at your Star Wars reference.

“My young padawan I’m going to teach you the basic chords.”

You rolled your eyes at his equally cheesy reference as he placed the guitar in your hands.

“You already know the basic E Minor because I’ve seen you butcher it when drunk. So we’ll start with C Major.”

Tony gently picked up your hand and guided your fingers to the top five strings before you strummed them together, sounding good and not at all out of tune. Tony continues your lesson until you’re able to play basic chord progressions on your own. When you were younger Vic tried to teach you but he got impatient while Tony stayed calm.

“Tony you actually taught me something and I didn’t sound bad. Thank you.”

You shifted your position so that you were facing the guy you were falling more in love with each day and cupped his chin before leaning over and brushing your lips against his. He moaned against your lips before putting the guitar down and deepened the kiss, asking for entrance which you gave him.

It looked like your guitar lesson was over for the day. Tony pulled back and sighed before running his hands through his hair.

“I’m going to miss you while I’m on Warped y/n. The guys are going to get me drunk and try to find me a girl, but the only girl I want will be back here in San Diego. Yours are the only lips I want to kiss and your hands are the only ones I want on my body.”

Tony was the sweetest guy in existence and any girl would be lucky to call him their boyfriend, but it saddened you that you never could because your brothers. Hell Tony hadn’t even told you he loved you yet, you’d told him a month in and then panicked when he didn’t say it back as blamed it on the alcohol. And with Mike as your brother it was believable.

“Tony I don’t want to get in the way of your happiness, my brothers will never approve and you need a girlfriend who can be seen in public. Hell we’re not even official, simply friends with benefits.”


Hearing y/n call us nothing more than friends with benefits hurt because I was madly in love with her, I just couldn’t find the right words. There was no way I’d end up with another girl because I saw myself growing old with baby Fuentes. But before I could tell her that her phone went off.

“It’s Vic, I better take this.”

She got up off my lap and took the phone into the kitchen. I heard an excited squeal and rushed into the kitchen just as y/n hung up on Vic.

“Are you okay y/n?”

She nodded and turned to me with a huge smile on her face.

“I’m coming on Warped with you guys as your photographer because Adam is sick.”

That was the best news I’d heard all day, it meant I could spend my summer with her.

“That’s great babe, now I have something serious to ask you.”

“What is it Tony?”

y/n walked into my open arms and I cupped her chin making her look up at me.

“I never want you to think of us as friends with benefits y/n because you mean the world to me and I see myself growing old with you still watching Star Wars. A month ago you told me that you loved me and I panicked, but that’s because I didn’t know how to say it back. But now I have the courage to say I love you y/n Fuentes and will you be my girlfriend?”

y/n’s eyes watered slightly as she nodded.

“A million times yes Tony, damn that was beautiful you soppy turtle.”

She kissed me and I kissed her back, but we were interrupted by someone clearing their throat behind us.

“Well don’t you two look cosy?”

Both y/n and I froze before pulling away from each other, only to come face to face with a grinning Jaime.

“Jaime you can’t tell Mike and Vic.”

I held y/n close as Jaime shook his head.

“That was a beautiful speech turtle and you must really love her to go against Vic and Mike. I always shipped you two so your secret is safe with me. Only on two conditions, one is that I get to be the best man at your wedding and the second is that you name your first born after me.”

I let out the breath I’d been holding, Warped Tour had just gotten a lot more interesting.

Just watched this gem and bawled like a baby. It’s such an amazing film. While incredibly sad towards the end, there’re also lovely, serious yet heartwarming moments. There’s humour, humanity and humility.

The cast truly gave a feeling of family and friendship. A+ performances.

A film one can watch more than once and the feelings will still be the same.

Building off of the same theme from my last drawing, here we see one of the Gamorrean actors from Return of the Jedi taking some time to unwind at the hotel.  It’s 1982 and principal photography for the third Star Wars film has completed, so he’s having a beer in the hotel pool just before he has to start packing for the long flight home.  He will most likely be called in for pick-ups later on, but for now his work on Return of the Jedi is done.
