The Harlequin Formula || Peter Parker x Reader

You all know about those short novella like romance novels published under the name Harlequin, right? Well, there’s also many manga artists who often transcribe the written text into a graphic novel form that I just adore reading!

So reading Harlequin comics is like one of the things I do for like, guilty pleasure and stuff because those kinds of comics is super pandering to young women (like me). Sure, a lot of the times the romance seems forced and unlikely to happen, but let me tell you, I read a Harlequin comic last night and the fact that it had a strong heroine who wasn’t afraid of the main love interest AND could read him like a book-

I was hooked.

So this whole story is inspired by the whole “harlequin formula” usually seen in those types of stories and how the ‘reader character’ tries to break them in hopes of finding a genuine type of love.

I hope you readers will enjoy this story ;w; .

When you were younger, you often filled your romantic daydreams with Harlequin novels. You didn’t know what true love felt like and often read these short novellas in order to get a glimpse of how love worked.

It was through these short stories that you learned the following things:

Love is when a demure woman falls for a powerful man.

The powerful man is often a multi-billionaire of some sort who comes off as cold and aloof, but is innately missing something all the same.

And whatever he was missing would always be love, to which the leading lady would offer him almost unconditionally, regardless of how cruel he was to her.

After the end of these novels, you would find yourself with tears in your eyes at just how wonderful the love story was. “That’s what true love has to be about, finding love in unexpected places while following your man to the ends of the earth.”

Each time you would finish a story, you would sigh and fall back against your twin bed, your hair fanning out beneath your head as you clutched the novel to your chest before softly murmuring (as if hoping that the more times you said it, then it would likely come true), “I honestly can’t wait to fall in love.”

I wasn’t tagged but I like attention.

Here’s 2010 me who was a loser and really into going to New York City (and standing by 30 Rock) and pretending to be a real life Liz Lemon.

2014 me was really into eating. Here’s me at IHOP.

And yeah. Me now. Looking at these pictures is hard for me sometimes because of body issues. But I feel more confident now even if my body isn’t what it used to be.

Am I the only one around here who's completely baffled by how many blue-eyed humans exist in the Mario-verse?

I mean, think about it. Every human character (Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Rosalina, and even Pauline) has blue eyes, with the exception of Wario and Waluigi, whose eyes are technically grey.

But WHY ARE EVERYONE’S EYES BLUE? Like…is blue the dominant human eye color gene in the Mario-verse? Kind of like how brown eyes are the dominant human eye color gene in real life? Either way, I feel like blue eyes in the Mario-verse are kinda redundant, especially if the real world considers them to be a genetic rarity, and a gorgeous one, at that.

We need more eye colors than just blue in the Mario-verse. And no, different shades of blue do not count.

Give me Mario and Luigi with dark brown eyes to compliment their kindness, and their warm and friendly personalities. Italians also take great pride in their dark eyes.

Give me Peach with violet eyes. Violet is the color of royalty, is it not? And Nintendo makes a pretty big deal about the fact that she’s a princess! Additionally, violet eyes are a thing in real life! Liz Taylor had them when she was alive and people thought her eyes were absolutely gorgeous.

Give me Daisy with green eyes because of her affiliation with flowers and nature. The earth is teeming with life just like how Daisy is filled to the brim with liveliness. And it spreads!

Give me Pauline with light hazel eyes. Because light hazel eyes are freaking gorgeous, just like the rest of her definitely is. And they would match the gold earrings and bracelet that she wears.

Really, the only person who I think is most deserving of blue eyes is Rosalina. Because she is affiliated with the stars and the sky. And on top of that they would match her dress. I seem to recall a source mentioning that her dress is “a color that is said to exist only when the sun peers out of the clouds”. So…another connection to the sky.

So yeah. We need more eye color variety in the Mario-verse besides blue. I rest my case.

Tom finding his in real life Liz Allen is a blessing honestly. I’m happy for him if he’s found someone. And everyone in this fandom should be too! It’ll hurt for a little bit bc obviously we love him but like at the end of the day, Tom’s happy so we should be happy.

anonymous asked:

I wouldn’t put it past TPTB to reveal that Raymond Reddington is Liz’s father, and then hold back on telling people Red is not really Raymond Reddington. It would be like the ultimate daddybait or something…

Oh they better not drag this out. Just give us the answer already - I mean the official answer. The father question has been dragged out far too long. There is so much other backstory to go through instead - including Red and Liz’s true connection (which Bokenkamp said will not be revealed until the end of the show). 

In addition there is so much more to learn about Red and his backstory, his real family, the Carla and Jennifer family, who was he before he turned criminal, is he an impostor, what was his real motivation for coming back into Liz’s life (Dembe made it sound like a mission), what is his end-game?

And for Liz, why is she so important to not only Red but others? Why would the cabal be after her? Why did someone say she was framed during the fire scene? And so much more.

Anyway, I am fully expecting them to officially answer the father question next week (JB said the paternity question would be answered) and would be extremely disappointed if they did not. However I can see them daddy-bait next week similar to what you suggested, announce that Raymond Reddington is Liz’s father but not until the very end of the episode we find out that our Red is not the real Raymond Reddington. So they could tease DG and then end with the answer that our Red is not Liz’s father. Guess we just have to wait and see.

Thanks for the question #anon


Life on Mars, S01E01 - I had an accident and I woke up 33 years in the past. Now, that either makes me… a time-traveller or… a lunatic, or I’m lying in a hospital bed in 2006 and none of this is real.

Jack: What are your plans for Valentine’s Day, Lemon?

Liz: I am taking myself out of the equation entirely. I scheduled a root canal for February 14th, Jack. I will spend half the day in twilight sleep. Then I will go home and watch the Lifetime original movie, My Stepson is My Cyber-Husband.

Jack: Wow, that is inspired. You are truly the Picasso of loneliness.

Liz: Or I am that painting elephant of being awesome.

i can’t think of any more people and no pressure to do it for anyone tagged!! ily all

Well, people, it’s official: I’ve let us all down. Because last night I met Cameron Monaghan. And I didn’t say a damn thing about Ian/Mickey or the fuckery that’s going on with Shameless. I got zero answers, I demanded no explanations. I have failed us all. I just had a brief, friendly conversation with him and left him to his evening. So I apologize. 

But also what is my life?! I’m still kind of in awe that it actually happened. I was in a bar with a few of my friends, and he came in, and I was sure I was making it up for a bit because literally what are the fucking odds. But after further investigation (by way of an unnecessary bathroom trip to get closer because i AM A SPY), his identity was confirmed. And when I was on my way back to our table, he was on the impromptu dance floor, and I straight up walked up to him, tapped him on the shoulder, and said hi. I must emphasize that I NEVER do this - I honestly cannot remember a single time I’ve approached a celebrity. As an LA native, I have a deep-rooted drive to just leave them alone. And I so very almost just walked past him. But in the end, I just figured why the fuck not. I so rarely see celebs I care about, and pretty much never see ones that I’m midway through writing an epic novella-length fanfic about (ok, about the character he plays, WHATEVER), so I swallowed my pride for a crazy second and went through with it. 

He was very nice (take that, weird dream I had a few weeks ago where he was rude!). The long and the short of it was this: I apologized for interrupting his evening, but I was like, “you’re Cameron Monaghan, right?” (lol, me - also, I’m 98% sure i butchered his last name, oh well), he confirmed, and I just told him he was great and I was a fan (and he responded “you’re great,” which was pretty cute, tbh). He asked me my name, we shook hands, and I told him I’d let him get back to his night. It got very blurry at the end (I mentioned something about Shameless, which, ugh, but I wanted to contextualize. And we definitely shook hands, but my mind was for sure not registering that I was touching! Cameron! Monaghan!), but he was sweet and polite and it was very simple. I said NOTHING to my friends when I got back to the table. I was like “they won’t understand. Wait for your tumblr friends. They’ll get it.” 

That was the end of my actual interaction with Cam, and yet (this is turning into a novel), we were about to leave and “Runaround Sue” came on, and my friend and I HAD to dance to it, which turned into us going all out on the makeshift dance floor for an hour (seriously, best DJ ever). Which meant I was dancing literally 5 feet away from Cam for a solid half hour, and another 15 minutes after he got a drink (I swear I wasn’t paying THAT much attention - it was a small dance floor! :P). So here are some things I have learned about Cameron Monaghan after spending a little over an hour in his presence:

  • he was wearing a frankly rather dreadful green turtleneck. The color was alright, but the rest of it was pretty sad. And it was blazing hot on the dance floor and he never seemed to falter, so good for him, I guess?
  • He has absolutely no problem dancing on his own. Whenever the very pretty blonde girl he was with got distracted (which, tbh, was kind of frequently), he would just dance in a circle by himself, usually pretty badly. It was both a little sad and very adorable. Power to you, baby Cam. 
  • At the end of the night, we were out on the curb waiting for an uber when he comes out on his own to smoke. I was with my friends, so I a) wanted to stay with them and b) didn’t want to accost Cam (again), but it was very tempting, just watching him stand alone, again 5 feet away from me, and smoke. I am not a smoker AT ALL, but even I have to admit, he looked real hot doing it. Kind of redeemed the turtleneck in the eleventh hour. 

So that is my Saga of Cam. The whole thing was so wildly coincidental I’m still kind of amazed, and i’m already feeling sort of embarrassed I actually talked to him (that LA avoidance drive runs deep). But I had to, right? He was right there, and seriously, there are so many bars in LA and I really don’t go out that much and there I was and there he was, and why the fuck not. I wasn’t nearly as awkward and flustered as I could have been (I think, I hope). So there it is. A thing that happened. Life is strange, no?

I’m going to start this thing off nice and easy. And don’t give me any shit for it – even MMA fighters start off training for stamina long before they learn how to apply a rear naked choke. Funky Juice is my stamina training. This drink is from the 30 Rock episode “It’s Never Too Late For Now” as a signature drink for Liz Lemon.

No surprise here, Funky Juice is just dripping with funk! The good kind of funk, though, not the one that means depressed or smelly. FJ results in neither of those, as a matter of fact. If I had one criticism, though, it would be that you have to balance the two just right for the perfect combination. If you use too much soda, you just end up with wine-flavored Sprite that doesn’t get you hammered. If you use too much wine, you end up with a drink that tastes like the wine you left out the night before but your “fuck it” attitude told you to drink the flat-tasting swill the next morning anyway.

7 Fake Movie And TV Drinks That Got Us Drunk In Real Life

Last week my coworker described me as sending emails like the Wicked Witch sends off monkeys. This week, I’ve been given a picture of a witch with monkeys with my name written on it.

I’m not sure AT ALL if it’s meant as an insult or a compliment, but I am 100% loving it. I am gonna embrace the hell out of this new image.
